Derek, of course it's our fault! Don't you know that they have the divine right to rule us and we poloi are standing against the will of "god"? (god, of course, being Redwood in this case...)
They really do think that we should vote for them just because they say so. It's like they have this belief that to rule is their destiny, and we're just a stepping-stone that's wobbling in an annoying way.
EDIT: Something somewhat relevant I wrote on another blog.
Why am I making this point? The argument that "they're all just gay" feels a little simplistic, and doesn't take into account the real problem behind this issue, though I'm sure it might take a small part. The real problem is a failing in the British character - not the English, but the British, which you might define as the ruling class of these isles, whether by ancestry or profession - if they're of a certain personality they will rise to the mushy upper layers and will always end up thinking in the same sort of way.
When they experience Arab/Muslim feigned deference they enjoy it, because it appeals to their belief that they really should be treated that way. They either don't understand, or don't want to understand, that the Arab "politeness" is just another form of barter, only for position and honour rather than goods. They are seduced by this "hospitality", which is many miles divorced from the treatment they get at home from us surly saxons.
The failing is simple: they want to be treated like the princes. Arabs treat them like princes, something that, apart from their immediate fawning coterie, they won't get from the populations they claim to rule over, ergo Arab culture and Muslim/Arab peoples are a desirable replacement for the native populations that despise them.
That's it in a nutshell. They want fawning deference and Arabs appear to give it to them, in contrast to the Saxon, dour Scot and the uppity Jew.
