England and America Two Worlds Apart

I came upon two excellent debates in America in recent days.

One is on “Anger in America” as seen by Americans:

The other one is on England as seen by Americans, including a fair number of British Ex-Pats now resident in America:

The calm reasoned debating style greatly impressed me.  Would this be possible in England?

Unfortunately the answer is a large NO!

    A good juxtaposition. The author of the second article seems to be precisely the person being discussed in the first.

      Thanks Nimrod

      I had reached the point where I had lost all hope for England when I came across these articles. It was in a way my farewell to England Blogging.
