Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Because national identity and culture are quite a bit more important to most people than Mr Weber's patronising little phrase implies.
You know as well as I do that those can easily be found in a book, or at least, the indicators of those. The little quirks are harder to find and recognise without direct, personal experience. You've mentioned yourself in the past about the national obsession with Jass. I'd never have known about that without seeing it first hand. I know to be careful which coffee you order in the morning in the Tyrol, or you can easily find yourself over the drink drive limit before lunchtime, etc... Those are what I see as little quirks.
