The main difference being that the Brits almost ruled the world, the Americans are still trying to do likewise, and largely succeeding.

p.s. Thanks for the link, I'll watch it when I've time.

You may also wish to be aware,scottishrepublican, how Smit has even been infecting Scotland with his regressive thinking, trying to steer people towards high carbon tourist economy dependency when the immediate climatic and energy resource imperative is to restrain our out of control and globally damaging corporately induced mass mobility appetite and addiction.

Smitspin flies in the face of prudent global environmental stewardship.

Bit of a [words I won't repeat here], but I suppose we already have Clearance tourism. We get plenty over from Canada, the USA, Australia, NZ etc searching for their roots. But thanks for telling me about that, it only highlights how cynical this man is.

The answer isn't to tax cheap flights to death (I don't see anything about the USAF & RAF's "carbon footprint") and punish poor people, but to find environmentally friendly methods of long distance mass transit.

 Random Information. 
 The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 was a popular uprising by the people of Cornwall in the far south west of Britain. Its primary cause was the raising of war taxes by King Henry VII on the impoverished Cornish for a campaign against Scotland, motivated by brief border skirmishes that were inspired by Perkin Warbeck's pretence to the English throne. Tin miners were angered as the scale of the taxes violated previous rights granted by Edward I of England to the Cornish Stannary Parliament which exempted Cornwall from all taxes of 10ths or 15ths of income. The Cornish had little sympathy for English wars against Scotland, considering that most Cornish were not English speakers at that time.
