Tradition, millions of britains, poor english among them but notibly Scot's whom suffered the illegal land clearances and land theft's by the ruling
class of Scotland who blamed the English for it (Because queen victoria had made grouse shooting popular) and also before this the earlier clearances
of the highland community's after the jacobite revolution failed.
Welsh whom suffered centurys as second class and had there language, culture and tradition's oppressed and of course Irish all made there homes in
the US, Boston for instance though founded by English settlers and named after Boston in England is home to a very strong Irish community and of
course they remember what the RICH english did to them but only that it was the ENGLISH and not the RICH ENGLISH TORY'S (Actually these atrocity's
were all commited under primarily TORY governments well before they renamed themselves Conservatives).
Of course the Yanks also forget that most English were the Scot's, Irish and Welsh whom were too poor to leave so ended up settling in the primarily
Engish ports of the country like for example Liverpool, Newcastle, London which has always been multi national as a city and to a lesser degree even
The Yank's have a love hate affair with there little old mother and to be fair there little old mother has acted a little schizophrenic over the
century's, burning the white house down etc.
But I say blame it all on king George, you can't go wrong blaming an inbred fat guy.
