I have received little hostility from Germans; those whom I know are greatly embarrassed by the new wave of Nazism. I am sad that these very serious problems have been reported in Britain by hate-mongering reporters who take a minority of idiots and claim that they represent an entire nation. Neo-Nazism is a problem, but if you believe that it is unique to Germany or that nationalism and racism have huge support here, then you are wrong.
The distorted stories in the tabloids make Britain appear as a nation of fools. They give the impression that the British are a small-minded nasty people who rejoice in the misfortunes of others, while ignoring their own. There is a better Britain by far, and it is not to be found in the raging inferiority complex of the tabloid press.
