Whatever happen to British stoicism--and standards?

They were actually Victorian-era holdovers, and most were already passe by 1960. In fact in modern Britain, vulgarism and extreme moral decays seem to be the rule of the day. Want anything remotedly Victorian in values? Go to America.

Maybe it is due to the pendulum effects?
