    • That might have something to do with the fact that mainstream British news media tend to instead focus on US-bashing so that you people can conveniently ignore your own problems... such as your children [apparently] getting all rapey.

    • You're so accustomed to it that you don't even notice it, it's status quo to you.

      British media likes to divert attention away from domestic problems by fiendishly obsessing over the US. I've seen it with my own eyes, so you can't deny it. Your media seems to cover the US with greater intensity than you cover your own issues.
