I don't understand the following: There was a feeling of relaxation in the air, with young couples strolling hand-in-hand, men with their shirts off moving their lawns, red-legged women slumped in deckchairs in their front gardens, children playing half-naked in the park. It was Britain at its most casual, happy to forget, in this temporary sunshine, the miseries of unemployment and recession. 1. Its most casual = its most usual or its most occasional? 2. What does 'happy to forget' mean?

yes indeed most casual is the same to its most usual or its most occasional and happy to forget refers to the relief to forget about their surrounding and enjoy the moment

'Its most casual' means most relaxed and informal. 'Happy to forget' means content not to think about.
