Since when are democracy, equality and freedom of speech exclusively "British values"? Are they even British values at all? There is plenty of evidence to the contrary. What is democratic about a hereditary monarchy, an unelected House of Lords or majority government formed with the support of a little over a third of the electorate?
A sizeable number of "Brits" seem to revel in inequality, finding squalid satisfaction in having someone to look up to, and more still from having someone to look down upon- where is the equality in that? Who will say that there is equality in covering up the crimes of the rich, powerful and well-connected when the poor, the powerless and the dispensable are made an example of?
As for freedom of speech, there are questions we are not even allowed to ask, never mind know the answers to, all shrouded in secrecy behind the veil of "national security". Democracy, equality and freedom of speech, these are the values the British Establishment likes to pretend it upholds, where in reality, it all too often subverts.
