In all seriousness, I've long had the impression that "self-respect" is a different kind of thing in the UK. Can't really put my finger on anything specific, although that Brit who had moved to the US, but then last year suddenly decided to turn his guns in to the police because "it's just the right thing to do" seems an example of it. "I'm not that important as an individual", or something like that? Then again, we have some heavy corruption taking root in our culture too, so it's not just them.

Maybe it's something to do with them having a queen. They call her queen mother sometimes. So maybe they are more trusting of government than we are being ruled by regular corruptible people. I don't know, but it may have something to do with that.
