‘Stiff Upper Lip’…

…A new image produced following an invitation to take part in the Great British Postcard Competition by the Marketing team for Saxoprint – Freestyle Interactive.

This piece is a response to the traditional ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ attitude of the British as described below:

None of us should be embarrassed, worried or even scared to speak about issues that affect our lives, why then are the British so scared about speaking up for ourselves or others and tarnished with a ‘stiff upper lip’ attitude? There are stories about nurses worried that if they say anything detrimental about their working conditions that they will lose their jobs, MP’s that have to resign when speaking up about the root causes for problems and even members of the Royal Family who can’t (until now) admit that major events have affected them. Recently the head of the London Fire Brigade spoke up about counselling after the Grenfell Fire disaster – maybe things are slowly starting to change – I for one hope so!
