Britons: lacking in culture?

The Culture Secretary, Tessa Jowell, yesterday effectively accused Britons of being Philistines compared to their German cousins.
On a visit to Berlin where she toured museums and art galleries before dropping in on a concert by Sir Simon Rattle, Mrs Jowell said she hoped that Germany's enthusiasm for culture would one day "rub off" on Britain, which she said lacked a passion for culture.
