@Bridey77:  It didn’t bother me that Madonna had moved here, but it was a bit of pain when she started pretending she was English gentry. I was like bitch plz.

 

Have any other celebs moved here though? As far as I recall we tend to grow our own, and then they move to LA. (Except for Kylie, who is our Honorary English National Treasure)

 

 

What is this about a reality show? Plz do not send Kardashians. We have enough of that sort of thing with ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ and ‘Made in Chelsea’.

@Bridey77:  As long as you keep the Kardashians, several of your politicians and news reporters its all cool 😉 Also, Canada, we don’t want Beiber either. Just incase.

@Bridey77: The mum annoys me. 

@chronicwhimsy: I agree, they all seem to move to LA, not that I can blame them really.

Well, Gwyneth would fit right in in the trendy bits of London, and Depp is FIT.

… but you can keep the rest of the annoying ones, thanks. And why not have a few of ours whilst you are at it? You can have Blair, for example, as far as I’m concerned. Smarmy git.

A lot of American politicians wouldn’t last a second in Britain. Not saying ours are GOOD, but there seem to be a lot of American ones who I would actually consider insane. Like “I literally do a double take when your average Republican senator opens their mouth”, not simply “I disagree with them politically”. Aside from Boris, I can’t really say that about any British politicians, and even he is funny rather than offensively backwards.

 

I don’t think British people really care about American celebrities living here. Quite a lot of them come across as patronising or pretentious, but we think the same of them when they live in the US. It’s just a different culture, and the celebrity lifestyle guru type thing doesn’t really hold up here, so that’s why Gwyneth Paltrow irritates us. It’s the whole “here’s my perfect life and you can buy it for £X from these companies” that makes her more irritating than Nigella Lawson who is probably our nearest equivalent.

@Bridey77:  It doesn’t stand for anything, I just think he’s very attractive! Fit = attractive.

I thought Blair was a smug git, more style than substance, and way too close to Bush and his administration for my liking. His wife Cherie is also a new age wierdo, IMO. Plus Blair’s politics and financial mismanagement directly paved the way for the recession.

@AmyJCardiff:  “A lot of American politicians wouldn’t last a second in Britain. Not saying ours are GOOD, but there seem to be a lot of American ones who I would actually consider insane.

I’d say this was fair. And even Boris knows about his reputation and plays on it… a lot of people voted for him just because they like to watch his gaffes, I reckon.

Come on Canada. Be a good citizen of the world and take Beiber back.

Please? 🙁
