    The Caribbean is more mellow with having African influences in the language, the cuisine and the music. At least in PR from what I know. The architecture in PR is mostly Spanish influenced and the culture itself has a more African (depending on where you go in PR).

    you know what, I'll say that Canada's views on slavery followed Great Britain who made it illegal in the late eighteenth century. but slavery was never common in the northern colonies anyway, and the majority of UEL's came from Massachussets, New York, Connecticut etc

    maybe, maybe not.

    The idea of "Anglosphere" culture isn't something I have heard until recently on this forum (we have the weird British-wannabe American poster Gungnir).

    Just because you have the same language doesn't mean you are similar.

    To me Britain is more like Netherlands than it is like USA.

    And Ireland is different from Britain with it's catholism and way way higher degree of God-believing than Britain.

    I've been to Southern Caribean (we had the longest stay in Trinidad and Tobago). It felt like a more civiziled form of Africa. Mostly because the fact that it is poorer than USA and had cows walking near the street without any fence between. However it was a peaceful society low on crime.

    I'd say the British (well, more specifically, the English) tend to be the most quiet and reserved of the various major Anglophone groups.

    I am from Yorkshire, so I have never met a middle class person.

    The Core of the Anglosphere(UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) all share a common meta-culture in government, archetecture, politeness, individuality, entrepernurial sprit, entertainment, and are largely genetically similar to each other.

    Nobody thinks of actors like Hugh Jackman(Australian), Russell Crowe(New Zelander), and Jim Carrey(Canadian) as being "foriegn" like a Latin American or someone from a foriegn culture. The entertainment culture of the Anglosphere countries largely overlap with each other in music, television, and motion pictures. You read a magazine in the US that talks about Prince William, as a British magazine will talk about politics in the United States. We are in the same family of culture.

    The perepherial countries like the West Indies, India, Pakistan, and South Africa also share cultural elements with the UK. Such as the main sport being Cricket, driving on the left side of the road, and the Archetecture.

    Overall, there is a commonalities between most English speaking countries. Much more so than the similarities between the UK and Holland.

    Your average Anglo-American man doesn't give two shits about the British royal family though. That is subject matter for gossip-mongering housewives and flamboyant homosexuals. It belongs on the tabloid stand with cover pages about who people like Kim Kardashian are fucking.

    As far as Anglosphere actors and musicians I largely agree with you.
