I have felt for a long time that the long hours syndrome is a typical British and American style of working.

Management perceives you to be more loyal when you work long hours, when in most cases you are just less productive.

We should lean more towards Europe than the US to learn more about a balanced life style.

The US has colonised us – a coca-cola-isation has taken place with McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Dominos Pizza.

One third of Americans are obese. One fifth of British people are obese. It is all junk food with 2,500 calories per meal rather than 2,500 per day.

There is really no need for our prime ministers to rush to the US every time there is a change of government. They have no more interest in our welfare than Europe has.
