It is billed as the greatest special relationship on earth; two countries bound together by common bonds stretching back centuries.
But most Americans are so ignorant of their kinsfolk in Britain they believe the UK is a far off country "somewhere" in the Middle East, according to the outspoken tourism minister, Kim Howells.

"Very often people do not understand the title of the country," Dr Howells told MPs of Commons culture select committee yesterday. "In America, people had heard of London, some had heard of England, no one had heard of the United Kingdom - they thought it was somewhere in the Middle East."


Don't worry, B. Caapi

That is really fucking sad. HOw ironic that people think the UK is in the Middle east! In this country we are just too ethnocentric. I once heard a horrifying statistic that 50% of HS seniors didnt know where Canada and Mexico are on a map. I wonder what Invert would think of this?
