A third believe bad manners are the catalyst for much of the anti-social behavior in Britain, the ITV poll found.

Experts interviewed by the network blamed a lack of respect for authority.

More than 90 percent of respondents believe parents are failing to ensure their children learn proper manners and that bad behavior of celebrities and footballers are setting a poor example for impressionable youngsters. ...

I met a couple of English Pensioners (like myself) during my travels in my RV and hopeing to strike up a conversion, I said as an opening remark "good morning".
The response from "the eldery lady" was... What`s good about it!!.
I was flabbergast at such an ignorant response. Needless to say the attempt at conversation was swiftly ended as i hastened on my way. Now-a-days i`am much more cautious approaching English visitors as that encounter has coloured my view of the English.
Well, Cliff. Do you suppose the whole English vineyard should be judged by two sour grapes?

in addition to the example of celebrities, how about the taught wisdom of so-called business leaders in the workplace?

The modern teaching that you need to be "more aggressive" to be effective in work and life is a plague on society and alien to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

"Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men."

Apparently, the experts aren't aware that bad manners and lack of respect for authority are both symptoms. The question should be, what brought about the lack of respect?

This is part of the so-called "coarsening of our culture".

Sometimes it's a subtle change (i.e. I HATE it when people
say "no problem" these days instead of "you're welcome" like
they used to).

Sometimes it's more blatant, as it was in the mid-70s when
"creative insulting" was actually somewhat fashionable.
TV shows of the mid-70s, like "Welcome Back, Kotter" were
full of such conduct, which climaxed about the time "Saturday
Night Fever" was released.

There's a Bible verse, can't remember where it is, that says
"...when iniquity abounds, the love of many will wax cold...",

Which pretty much sums-up the present situation.
