I gather we are renaming the territorials the 'Army Reserve' - just so happens to be the same name as the American ones,we have 'Homeland security' after the American ones - Great Britain Olympic team is nowaday 'Team GB' named after Team USA - i have heard pundits on 5 live saying during Premiership games that some teams tactics are 'left field' as well as 'throwing a curved ball' which i am pretty sure are not British expressions and don't forget the 'stepping up to the plate' sort of sayings that are freely used.
Now don't get me wrong,i am not a little Englander,i love the yanks,i've been there a couple of times and found them lovely people,but our medias fascination with them (wall to wall coverage of the annual hurricane and the yawnathon presidential election) is starting to get on my nerves as well as everything being renamed after anything American - anyone out there agree or am i lone voice in the wilderness?:sad:
