Nonetheless, it is nice to have your impressions confirmed by someone who actually knows what he is talking about. They have fundamentally distorted the meaning of the constitution that an individual has the right to bear arms. Special” relates the asymmetric view that the UK and USA have of what we Britons know as “the special relationship”, actually not that special to most Americans. The road and transport infrastructure is awful- John Kerry, visiting Haiti remarked that the state of the roads was better than in Washington!

He also tries to show how this compares to other high profile political figures he has shadowed on both sides of the pond. Everyone has photo ID, except for young people (who could easily apply for it) and a few ancient people who don't even have birth certificates. I don’t know who the hell he hangs out with, but it’s very possible he discovered the one group of overly religious teetotalers in the neighborhood. To give the UK its due, their churches are awesome, and I mean that word in its best sense—awe-inspiring.Sopel suggests that the deeply entrenched racism is a problem, as is a violent police force in a fairly violent country that has more than one gun per inhabitant. Sopel shares some of his own (weirdly liberal) racist views, implying that ethnic minorities are too dumb to apply for photo ID.

On the contrary, with the support and impetus from the all-mighty BBC, the second puppeteer’s protégé just as well gets included into the presidential journalist pool. Much of the most interesting material comes in almost as an aside - there is a section on how Trump provokes media attacks, and how these, in turn, fit into the narrative he is pushing. Donald Trump’s subsequent election and his first 18 months in the job have made Washington and world affairs febrile with opinion, outrage, incredulity, and interest- big time. I’ve never attended a literary event where the raising of hands from the audience was so immediate, so sustained.Then it would be obvious that Americans are not just Brits who incorrectly say fries, when it’s chips; chips when it’s crisps, cookies when it’s biscuits; and clearly do not drink enough tea (with milk!

It caused such a massive influx of prisoners, that the country heralded a special programme of prison building to cope with the extra demand for cells. It seems that more than half the population consider themselves ‘seriously religious’ and it’s virtually inconceivable that an atheist candidate could – at this time, at least – find his or her way to the White House. Even the title made me sit back and think, yes indeed, had they spoken another language then everything they do differently to us is because, well, they're just another foreign country!He has reported from all around the world, of course, but he is correct in saying that we could understand the US better if we consider it as the foreign country that it undoubtedly is to us. This all makes the US a superficially familiar place but as Sopel points out, the accent is on “superficially”. While the media depicted him as the most opponent of unfettered access to guns, he was the gun industry’s greatest friend. I suppose hindsight is a marvelous thing, for many a time while reading this book I would look at something and just go that makes sense.
