Are the British the world's second greatest rubes?

According to a survey by worldpublicopinion.org, that's what we think:

In general, when [Country] government negotiates with other countries do you think that the government tends to be too willing to compromise and is often taken advantage of?

And 65% of us agreed.  Only the South Koreans thought less of their government's negotiating prowess, with 71% thinking they get taken for a ride.

On the flip side, just 14% of Turks think that their government gets the less pleasant end of the stick.
