I’m an American, and I love Britain. Why can’t the Labour Party love it too?

I bloody love Britain. That may seem a bit twee to you, but I come by it honestly. The sense of fair play, the dry wit, the “mustn’t grumble, best get on with it” attitude that saw the nation through the darkest days of the Blitz and the self-deprecation that I can only assume is a product of the cool, damp climate. I love it all.
