WE DO BRIT FOR CHARITY
Selfish: The French
GENEROUS Brits are FIVE times more likely to give to charity than the stingy French - and THREE times more than Germans.
We handed £708million to good causes such as the Asian Tsunami in 2004/5. That put us second in a poll of 12 countries for the Charities Aid Foundation.
Overall we donated 0.73per cent of the UK's gross domestic product - compared to 1.67 per cent in the US.
