Those that talk about resentment of old colonial powers are wrong! This taxi driver seems to have a good opinion not only of the UK, but of the UN too. Is it where the money comes from? Premiership football is avidly followed here, a UK education is a must for the middle upper elite. Everything is imported from the UK, even Ribena.
The impact of this is practical on many levels. For a first, I have the impression that it helps me assimilate here. I'm different enough as it is ;)
