Ahhh, the pathetic remnants of a once-great empire!
These are mostly a matter of taste or what you are used to. My family has branches in both countries so I visit Britain frequently. What I find interesting is that Brits insist on seeing Americans as if we were degenerate Brits. If they traveled to Asia or Africa or South America they would accept the fact that people in other places have different tastes and customs. But if it’s in the U.S. it’s because there is something wrong with us. Very provincial attitude.
