I struggle with patriotism. Ever since Owen’s Dulce et Decorum est crossed my consciousness as an A- Level English Literature student, I have struggled to feel a great sense of pride in being British. However, listening to Question Time on Radio 4, I do feel privileged to live in this country. I don’t necessarily agree with all the points put forward but I rejoice to live in a country where we can air these views in safety.
Hurrah for the freedom to live in a modern democracy!
