Are we liars?

During wool week I had a very interesting discussion with a Dutch lady about how we are perceived by others. She said that the British are liars and the Dutch are rude. She stated that the British are so polite that they say something is ‘lovely’ while the Dutch would rather be honest and say ‘I don’t like it’. I have to say that I couldn’t really argue – I often find myself saying one thing while thinking another. It might be interesting to have a discussion where you are only allowed to contribute if your statement is true! I found this on the internet but can’t confirm the source as the blog has been removed:
