IMHO Britain day by day is turning more European (in the European Union sense). I have noticed in recent years angry readers who are furious with American retorts of European (I shall stress not necessarily British) anti-Americanism, and angry detractors of American patriotic articles on dates such as July 4 each year, have been Britons. These Britons are quite busy defending their European neighbours and joining them to bash their American brothers.
It is as if Thatcher's times as Prime Minister is ancient history now, and Britons have abandoned what she stood for in droves.
"The [English] Channel is wider than the Atlantic" is now firmly a thing of the past.
Your two favorite roles Brit bashing and American ass kissing
