Britons afraid to show their national pride in public for fear of ABUSE

Britons are increasingly afraid to show their national pride in public for fear of ridicule or abuse, a study has found.

One in four believe we are living in the least patriotic decade ever.

In contrast, the 1940s were overwhelmingly named as the decade when patriotism was at its height, with the nation brought together by the Second World War.

According to the report, 79 per cent of people consider themselves patriotic and almost 90 per cent say they are proud of their birthplace.
