Germans better than Brits, according to . . .
the German ambassador to England.
Apparently, he's miffed that most Brits remember/think of Germany in terms of, well, their role in WWII.
He says this "obsession" is to blame for the two countries' drifting apart.
I'd guess that a bigger reason is that Germany has tried to be France lite, and want to force the EU constitution down the rest of Europe's throats. Most Brits are against the EU constitution, don't like th eFrench policies (particularly with regards to economic policy), and don't want Germany dictating British laws.
But it is much easier to blame it on other things, like the fact a lot of Britons lost grandfathers and great-grandfathers to wars with Germany.
