This Sceptered Isle

American actress Gwyneth Paltrow is quoted:

"I like living here because I don't fit into the bad side of American psychology. The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans," the 34-year-old added.

Hey, I happen to be slightly anglophillic myself, and always enjoy my visits to that "...envy of less happier lands," or Limeytown (as Jesse Jackson and I like to call it), but is it really fair to call the Brits more civilized? I mean, like, Gwyneth dear, have you ever been to a football game? (soccer to us)

Or a quidditch match?
