Mark Dolan responds to those at home and abroad who enjoy talking down Britain ...

I did like Mark Dolan's Big Opinion this evening - it is far too common for people to start running our country down. 

A certain healthy scepticism and ability to see your own failings and those of your country is a good thing, but it becomes destructive when you lose all pride or self-confidence as a nation and downright malignant when you start being unable to see the good things about your own country or the positive things your fellow-citizens have worked to achieve, at worst openly despising your own country, and become, in the words of Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Mikado,"

You tell 'em, Mark!
