: Fast-food paranoid Eric Schlosser disses his fellow Americans to all Britain in, of course, the Guardian:
I can’t remember another time when having an American accent provoked as much immediate hostility from Brits of every race, creed, class, and sexual orientation. If you’re an American, overseas, in the fall of 2003, you’ve got a lot to answer for.
If I could fake a British accent with any skill, I would now. It would save a lot time….
It’s easy to hate Americans today, as the United States plays the global role Great Britain once did, opening new markets for investment, maintaining access to valuable commodities, and crushing anyone who poses a serious threat to the world order.
