Default Englishman In New York

Interesting audio slideshow by the BBC. Anyone we know on there?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-11029799

New York is home to some 120,000 English men and women - including photographer Jason Bell. Inspired by the sheer number of British-born people who live there, he tracked down some of better known faces, but also others who do their 'day jobs' in The Big Apple.

His photographic results - published in a new book 'An Englishman in New York' - are on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London. BBC Radio 4's magazine programme Broadcasting House travelled to the US - and caught up with Jason, and some of his subjects.

Oddly enough that was the only song I banned the DJ from playing at our wedding in NY.

I just saw that on the BBC website and I thought all those people were far too beautiful! (Not too beautiful to be English - just too attractive in general! )

Come over to Wisconsin, Jason Bell. We've got some really 'interesting' people to photograph.

I saw a video on the BBC and I've always wanted to live in the USA. I've got a diploma in spray tanning and I trained at the respected Acme School of Spray Tanners can you tell me where to apply type questions?

That was cool. I noticed the woman who runs Tea and Sympathy down in the village. It's so weird to walk in there because everyone speaks with an English accent. I did love her comment that if you invented a great new widget in the UK everyone would say 'eh... why do you want to bother doing that?'

Where's the spray tanner chick's accent from? I heard several words pronounced like a South African. Maybe she's lived all over the place...

It's better than 'Moving to New York' by The Wombats. They're from Liverpool, pretty much the Beatles then.

Regarding the Sting song, do we like our toast done on one side?
