    Has anyone else noticed how differently British people answer interview questions on tv to Americans?

    Americans always seem to answer more formaly. So if you asked the question 'what sport do you like to watch on the tele' an American might respond 'yes, i like to watch soccer on the television' but a brit is more likely to respond just 'football.'

    Has anyone else noticed this? And have a reason for the longer and more polite response?
