Most Americans are openly critical about British pompous attitudes and jealousy of Americans
They have everything to be jealous about. The British are socially and even economically still a feudal society and they are all painfully aware of it.
Social mobility is nonexistent generation after generation. Even for the small few who do acquire some wealth it is always just a splinter when compared to the Amazon forest sized amount of that held by a select few. For those who do manage this tiny bump in their bank balance in their lifetime they are always left in no doubt by those higher up in the food chain that they are not one of them and never will be.
That's why British plebs foolishly try to pull the game of social rank on Americans thinking they can get away with what they think is an unsuspecting audience only to be laughed at again. And yet they have no choice but to play this losing game back in their British homeland.
If it weren't for Prince Andrew the subject of Britain never even arises in most American's world.
It says everything about that small island that it requires a sordid sex scandal involving the abuse of vulnerable young girls in order to get noticed.
