This from the
Britons see US as vulgar empire builder

Most Britons see America as a cruel, vulgar, arrogant society, driven by class and racism, crime-ridden, obsessed with money and led by an incompetent hypocrite.

More than two-thirds who offered an opinion said America is essentially an imperial power seeking world domination. And 81 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.
Imagine that. And Briton is supposed to be an "ally".

Now all we need is to find out what our one other "ally" -- Israel -- really thinks about us, and we can have ourselves a real celebration over the successes in diplomacy and brigde-building by our prestigious, honorable and forthright federal government.
