Theodore Zeldin Quote: “The British have turned their sense…”

The British have turned their sense of humour into a national virtue. It is odd, because through much of history, humour has been considered cheap, and laughter something for the lower orders. But British aristocrats didn’t care a damn about what people thought of them, so they made humour acceptable.
