Today, I develop my argument that far from being a broken country, we have a spirit in Britain that is strong. In today’s Sunday Times I argue that sometimes it is when times are tough that you often see some-one’s true nature. This Christmas, when times are tougher than they have been for years, we’re seeing what most of us would call the ‘best of British’. All over the country we are hearing stories of charities and third sector groups inundated with volunteers who want to do a little something to help out someone else. It seems that what people are taking away from the slowdown is that its time to step up giving. Let me know what you think.
