Re: Ah, but ...
We learned from the best :-)
Seriously, as a Yank who has spent ~20% of his life in Blighty, you lot are slightly worse than we are. Not by a lot, mind. IMO, the GreatUnwashed on both sides of the pond need to pull their collective heads out. Neither side is exactly Humanity's gift to the Universe. One wonders if most people contributing to this kind of spat has ever traveled more than 40 miles from where they were born.
Ah, well. There is always beer. This round's on me ... the hand pump marked "Ale" is a rather nice homebrewed Bitter that I just tapped. Cellar temperature, of course.
