I've only been around since the 70's so can't comment on times before that but I have lived in Essex, Surrey and South London and worked in many parts of London and because it is busy you do meet the odd **** but the vast majority of people are decent and approachable. I don't know what ferrel parts of the country you have visited but I know I've not been there.

Doubt if BS remembers the 50's too well anyway.I certainly don't (and I was born in '51).

Nonsense...I know for a fact you've been to loads of away days to many a Northern town and I include Luton in that list.

Is it attacking the grieving widower of a woman murdered by a terrorist? If it is, you can count me out.

For me its
Thinking you are better then someone because they read a different newspaper then you.
Thinking you are better then someone else because they follow different politics to you and of course your view is the right view.
thinking you are better then someone else because of the clothes you wear or the car you drive.
Sorry to be arseist but i like living in a country where people say hello,goodbye and thankyou to you even if they dont know you.
Britain in the 50,s and 60,s had great values imho but now its just a bit too ferrel for my liking.

50 & 60's really

Krays, Richardson if you don't pay protection your in a motorway piling

The Messini brothers in the 50s White slavery traffic for prostitutes( Its nothing new)

The front door is all ways open policy was because people had nothing to nick and lived in fear in East London and South London, the streets may have seemed more decent but that hid the fear of the people.
Canning Town, East Ham, may seemed a happy place to walk, but at what cost to many who lived and paid the protection money

Yesterdays bully boys are today's heroes , that'S a sad refection on today's society

Immersed in the accounts
I think there is a confusion between traits, characteristics and values
Also values appear to change across the classes and as time goes by, even depending on Gender, so much so that I don't think you could list British values .

I thought he abused NF first.

What's this, the school playground? Accusing "Hope Not Hate" of being a terrorist supporting organisation is defamation, and I imagine, like his loathsome sycophant Katie Hopkins, we'll be seeing a large payment and a public apology before long.

British values? tricky. I've always been influenced by three elements which have affected my values; the way my parents raised me, my education and religion. The last one probably had more effect than I thought at the time. I was a Cub and then a Scout with the Church, in the choir and for a period of time attended Sunday School. So it was three time a day at Holy Trinity Rayleigh. that was quite normal for the 50/60s by the way. So my values are about the way I behave based on experience and observation.

Since adulthood I have always had a lot of time for Max Ehrmann's Desiderata poem. Although good old Max was an American so much stuff in there was universal. I read the poem every now and again and it reminds me of the values I should aim for, and often forget. It was written in 1952. I was just one when it was born so I associate closely with it as it's only a year younger than me.
