Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
It's not even "his own" culture- he was brought up in apartheid South Africa. His parents, who were British, may have introduced him to some aspects of British culture, but it would inevitably have been a subset filtered through a colonial perspective. He seems to have avoided racism, however I suspect that as a Thatcherite he views anyone outside the microclass of super- rich super- trendies as abject losers.
