Delingpole: Trump's 1776 Report Makes Me Ashamed to Be British

What we didn't understand at the time — but do now — is that a system of customs and unwritten rules is dependent on the probity of the people within it. Everyone must act with integrity and good faith: judges must cleave to the rule of law rather than engage in political activism; politicians need to act in the interests of their constituents and for the good of their country; businesses need to create value for consumers and shareholders while looking to the long-term; the police need to act as servants of the people ('policing with consent') rather than bullying, politicised authoritarians pursuing an agenda alien to the public's values; and so on.
