Stephen Pollard wears a pair of stars and stripes cufflinks as a personal tribute to "the nation leading the fight against barbarism" and makes a point:
On countless occasions I have been sneered at, sworn at and, twice, spat at...
Not being American, for me this is simply useful in seeing how common such prejudice is...
It's not that usual to hear people give voice to their anti-semitic or anti-black bigotry. But in my experience, there is one prejudice which is now entirely acceptabl: anti-Americanism.
And British fedupness with themselves:
According to this:
Hard evidence of radical population replacement in Britain from The Telegraph:
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) will release figures showing that more than 200,000 Britons emigrated during 2006. That will take the total number who left the country between 1997 and 2006 to 1.97 million.
Another 1.58 million foreign nationals resident in Britain left during the same period.
However, 3.9 million foreigners arrived over the decade, including more than 500,000 in 2006.
So 200,000 native British leave the country and 500,000 foreigners move in every year
