What a waste of space. This is nothing more than the usual left wing drivel.
LOL! Did you read the entire article? He's an English conservative describing reactions abroad. You have to get beyond the opening half dozen or so paragraphs.

Dalrymple's take on one Janine, an American expatriate living in Paris, was pretty telling. After one reads and writhed at the effrontery of certain French people who knew her- here I digress, did she really usually murmur with shame about her nationality - "Americaine?". Did these patronising sods really say, "you do things right" when you do them? I wonder about these anecdotes about certain people.
Perhaps the good doctor was sold a bill of goods. Anyway, as for American expatriates living in Paris, putting up with patronising sods. Fancy that!
LOL! Did you read the entire article?
No, I read the entire article twice. My statement stands.

I myself did not read too carefully. Black mark!. I then read the article on one Janine. The Doctor was quoting the Evening Standard newspaper. My error in attributing it to the Doctor's re-telling.
Altogether a pretty fair piece. I understand people, especially we Freepers getting hot under the collar, I tell myself to re think before posting. What beats me is if some Americans told those patronising sods in Europe and my own native country, about the "wunnerful, wunnerful job" on whom THEY elect. Same thing for Canada too.
God Bless America.
