British values? Whenever I hear people refer to British values, I ask them to define them, specifically, and preferably to state a time period during which these 'traditional values' were held.
The answers are usually hilarious.
We all have to make our moral judgements the best we can, based on our circumstances and understanding and be prepared to argue for change if we feel it appropriate.
There are many things happening in the world that I cannot condone, but find it hard to lay down any moral superiority based on western values.
Things are changing, albeit slowly, things always do, but is there a utopia towards which we are all travelling?, or is civilisation merely morphing along with the zeitgeist as it always has.
