If the town of Pittsburgh (or “Sh*ttsburgh, as she called it) wasn’t enough, Sienna Miller has now pissed off all of England. After declaring that she was moving to Wales with her boyfriend Rhys Ifans, Miller said, “I love Wales. I think it is the most beautiful country in the world and the people were just gracious and lovely considering they have been raped and pillaged by the English for so long.”(Mirror)
Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
