Not a lack of politeness, IMO.  With a continuous stream of fast moving
traffic already on the roundabout the only way one can enter, without
lights, is if someone already on the roundabout stops to let you out.  This
would be completely counter to the Highway Code, Road Traffic Act and other
drivers expectations and is likely to be a cause of rear-end shunts.
Politeness does still occur in very slow moving traffic where many drivers
will slow that little bit more to let someone out of a side-turning.  Unless
it is a BMW, of course ...
