Endless queuing? Endless grumbling? Gold-plated compliance by haughty bureaucrats with every dot and tittle of rules decreed by foreign officials? Jobsworths conducting petty and theatrical procedures in the name of security and health and safety? Exaggerated fear of supposed terrorists? Small entrepreneurs chewed up or ignored in the interests of big business? Government ministers and departments issuing infuriating, anodyne statements about \”keeping London safe\” and \”delivering core legacy objectives\”? Massive budgetary overruns? Waste and profligacy in procurement? Freebies for politicians?
Everybody complaining about it but going along with it anyway?
Quite. What is un-British about any of that?
