British Identity

As an Anglophile, I like reading about Britain. I found this post over at a great blog, "Southern Appeal."

Anglosphere post of the day: Today's Daily Telegraph editorial page sets out "Ten core values of the British identity." Here's the Cliff Notes version:
I. The rule of law.
II. The sovereignty of the Crown in Parliament.
III. The pluralist state.
IV. Personal freedom.
V. Private property.
VI. Institutions.
VII. The family.
VIII. History.
IX. The English-speaking world.
X. The British character.
