Britain’s culture war is not really taking place (Financial Times)

This is why the UK is increasingly horrified by US culture:

“The truth is that Britain doesn’t have a culture war like the US. There is no strong religious right. Gay marriage and abortion are not dividing lines. There is no “antifa” and barely any anti-vaxxers. Britain has perhaps the lowest vaccine hesitancy rate anywhere in the world. It likes socialised healthcare and climate action.”

This is why the UK voted for Brexit (to leave the EU, not Europe)

“Many voters say the government doesn’t care about their area. They resent being spoken down to. They probably resent Financial Times columnists who quote Jean Baudrillard.”
