Brit chancers in the US

Outrageous piffle in The Daily Beast about upstanding British journalists in the US, such as Piers Morgan and Louise Mensch.

A more relevant aspect of Mensch’s nationality, pertains to the way in which her career has followed a trajectory not unlike that of many other media-hungry Brits who wash upon American shores. Having either failed in their native land or found it not big enough to contain their massive egos, these “chancers” (as they are known in British slang) invariably come to America where they find a ready audience among the sort of people who think an English accent automatically confers sophistication.

I am, of course, available for comment at the usual rates.
