UK crippling labour strikes should be mentioned, too.

Robert, you must be living in the 1970s or 1980s.

Penka, that article does sound similar to the thoughts of the American expats I used to know working in the UK

It's a very good and fair article. Very fair indeed.

I wonder why there's no mention of British sarcasm towards Yanks? This guy must not have been aware of the talk behind his back.

The British are insufferably arrogant - especially towards Americans.

Jack, stop confusing arrogance with indifference!

If you had read the article properly, including the by-line, you would have noticed that "this guy" was a female....

.... Maybe you just answered your own question, Jack! ;)

Peter, I reserve my "reading carefully" for contracts and books, not websites.

In any event, thank you for providing an excellent example of British sarcasm.

You wanna be glad you're not French! ;)
