“It saddens me to hear about rampant illegal immigration”
telegraph reader Jenny Stewart share the same feeling: “I am an American and, like most Americans I know, I share a heritage with the United Kingdom. We love everything (well, almost everything) about Britain.
However, Ms. Stewart notes that “it saddens me to hear about rampant illegal immigration; the weakening of your churches and culture; high taxes try to pay for everything.” She says: “The UK is special. Protect him.”
“Americans go to the UK because they expect it to be different”
telegraph reader Laura McIntyre is another American who visits the UK regularly. He noted: “Americans go to the UK because they expect it to be different from home, so why complain when they discover that it is, indeed, different? That’s silly.”
“If people from the heartland of America visited the heartland of Britain, they would have a great time”
Another anonymous reader He raised an interesting point, as they argued that “the problem is the cost of traveling across the Atlantic, which means that generally only elite Americans come here and what they visit is London, which clearly has its flaws.
“If normal people from the heartland of America came here and visited the heartland of Britain, I’m sure they would have a great time.”
“We are complete Anglophiles”
telegraph reader Sarah Ferrar He recalled a trip he took during the 1970s with his mother.
“When I was 20, my mother and I flew to Heathrow, hired a car and immediately left London and spent several weeks traveling around the British Isles, going as far as Skye and as far as Bath. “It was just lovely.”
And he adds: “In 2000, one of my daughters and I took that trip, although a little modified. “We are complete Anglophiles.”
‘The weather is not a problem’
Another reader who would classify herself as an Anglophile is Carol Perdiz. She wrote: “I’m an American and I’ve never found a reason to complain about anything! Pubs are perfect for having a good glass of wine and something to eat. The weather is the weather and it is not a problem. My accommodation is comfortable, the metro and buses take me where I need to go. If, when I visit, there is a strike, I rearrange plans (I receive emails from TFL, so I can plan accordingly).”
