English values? A nice compromise between healthy scepticism when someone tries to sell you something (compared to the American popular attitude of buying what Mr Advert tells you) and a general desire to hold out for a certain standard of fairness (compared to the ultra-cynical Mediterranean attitude of "I'm in power now so let's fleece them, because the others would only do the same").
Part of the healthy scepticism means that we don't go for the whole "my country right or wrong" thing, because most Brits see that (rightly) as powermongering bollocks.
Generally this leads to the one true test of a Brit: understatement. It doesn't do to be too fanatical about a cause (see "healthy scepticism"). So you know who's truly outstanding, one-in-a-million quality in Britain, because they'll be described as "a bit good". :-)
