Not sure you have the correct analysis about the British economy. Perhaps we can both agree that Norway has been very astute in managing the wealth generated from its natural resources - a great example of sensible investment in infrastructure, well distributed social welfare and a hugely successful sovereign wealth fund.
Look what happen in Noth sea oil, there are lot of similarities,. Britain squandered the golder opporunity to grow the country with the money made form North Sea in past decades. As soon as investment interest picked up again in 2012/2013, it raised tax and now on verge of collapsing. Same attitude - not hungry enough, as you said.
It is a common perspective for people living in North Asia to assert that Indonesia could and should have done better and that the reason for the gap between the country's enormous potential and what little has so far been achieved is because Indonesians are "not hungry enough". In other words cursed, not blessed by its resources. There is some truth in it.
