    Arrow Britons have a dim, if somewhat hypocritical view, of the USA

    AMERICAblog-

    Wow. And I thought we had problems winning friends in the Middle East. Bush has even bungled one our traditionally best relationships.

    People in Britain view the United States as a vulgar, crime-ridden society obsessed with money and led by an incompetent president whose Iraq policy is failing, according to a newspaper poll.

    A few highlights, errr, lowlights:

    77 percent of respondents disagreed with the statement that the US is "a beacon of hope for the world".

    12 percent of Britons trust them to act wisely on the global stage. This is half the number who had faith in the Vietnam-scarred White House of 1975.

    83 percent of those questioned said that the United States doesn't care what the rest of the world thinks. (Surprised it's not higher. Who actually thinks Bush cares?)

    70 percent of Britons like Americans a lot or a little. (Phew, there's hope for the future.)

    1% consider Bush a "great leader" against 77 percent who deemed him a "pretty poor" or "terrible" leader.

    1 per cent of those who took a view said President George W Bush hypocritically championed democracy as a cover for the pursuit of American self-interests.

    In answer to other questions, a majority of the Britons questions described Americans as uncaring, divided by class, awash in violent crime, vulgar, preoccupied with money, ignorant of the outside world, racially divided, uncultured and in the most overwhelming result (90 percent of respondents) dominated by big business.

    Now if they can only take a serious look at Blair, not to mention their own violent crime, rigid class divisions, corporate weasels (BP, Shell, etc) and rampant racism. We can only hope that in a few years, both of our countries are able to get back on track.

    thank you Aaron Spelling. I feel part of our problem (not all of course) is our wretched television. I cannot imagine what people think about the "average" American if they watch our programming. Show anyone an average evening entertainment of say, WWF, Springer, Windfall etc.

    then top it off with a few gangsta rap videos and an episode of COPS.

    Too bad television cannot have higher standards. I rarely watch it at all because other than maybe the History channel and Discovery there is nothing on there worth watching except of course, fox news.

    At least no one mud wrassles on Fox and they dont' have a strippers pole.

    Got this from Liquid Generation:

    " HAPPY 4TH OF JULY: SHOOT THE BRITISH: Shoot all those snaggle-toothed British bastards for thinking they are so much better than America. That’s right. We said it. They’re jealous. "


    Even though I don't really hate the British it was a pretty funny game with my least favorite Brits in it.

    I think Grimm wakes up in the morning thinking of new ways to cut a ripe, egg fart on the United States.

    Now now let's be nice.

    I know that the British are not very keen of the American governemnt, but it is hypocritical for them to not say anything about their governement and their PM, Tony Blair. I think Blair is really unpopular there though so maybe I'm wrong in saying they're hypocrites.

    Well, I just got back from London and it's full of vulgar, overweight, LOUD people. It's been awhile and I forgot how similar Brits can be to us yanks. Oh, and Europride was a blast, although I've had my fill of naked drunks cruising Soho for awhile.
