Re: Vote to Keep Europe British
Accusations of mindless conformity are, however, wide of the mark. Britons, for whatever reason, don't like to be told what to do.
However, our reactions tend to be more understated than other countries, and often passive-aggressive. Look at a recent protest of bikers against something (I really can't remember what, maybe fuel prices or something...) - They took to the motorway, formed up accross it, and drove slowly. In a country like, say, France, there would have been outright demonstrations, blockades etc. We just react differently, often in a more subtle way, which to an outsider looks like acceptance.
