"You are just a colonial."

In our neighbourhood where I live there are two older men.  One was born in Canada and raised in this village; the other was born and raised in the UK — he is English — married a Canadian (currently our mayor) and moved to Canada.

The ex-pat Brit apparently likes to insult the local man by telling him he is a "colonial".   The local man reacts very negatively to this perceived slight and responds with his own insults.

I keep asking the local man why he takes this all so seriously.  After all Great Britain is a 'has been' power. It's glory days are well behind it.  Moreover, at least for younger Europeans, the 'New World' is the cool place.  Art, science and commerce are more dynamic than the UK (except for maybe music and London is an important financial centre).  The 'New World' has semi-wilderness and wilderness that most of Europe no longer has.

In passing, both neighbours are full blown tobacco cigarette and alcohol addicts.  One of them can be/has been a little unruly in public.  The less unruly ridicules the other for being unruly.  

Small towns......

I am still working on getting these guys together for a drink and a smoke.  If successful, I'll smoke the peace pipe so I can better tolerate the ambient tobacco smoke.

Um, Britain doesn't exist as a country.  It is the UK, the collection of sovereign entities that make up the United Kingdom, of which England is one of them.  Great Britain refers to the largest of the islands that compose the UK.

Just sayin'.  But as our resident historian you knew this already, right ?
