I have never, ever heard of an American in the UK being 'victimised' just on account of their accent.


Similarly, whilst I can accept that there are racist elements that would make a comment to people with a foreign accent, it is not 'many' and certainly not a frequent occurance.


The East and West midalnds are home to literally millions of immigrants, you expect people to believe they are under daily threat?


In my frequent travels to the NW, Liverpool and the working towns in Lancs, I've never seen nor heard anything that you describe, and to the locals I'm a foreigner.


So yes, I'm also calling BS.
Yes I second this. It winds me up when people label an entire nation as a bunch of racists in effect when the vast, vast majority are absolutely nothing of the sort.
