Is it common that Britons consider American English wrong?


    
I've heard various responses: 1. American accent is just an accent different from the British one and should not be deemed wrong. 2. Americans don't speak English. They speak American. 3. Britons and Americans are two peoples divided by the same language. 4. American English is unsophisticated,...
You don't say. Most Britons think their country is heading in the wrong direction #Brexit
To all the women of the world, I have an American English accent, but very far from typical American mind. #liverpool #manchester #london

1 year after #Brexit vote and 2 months after the elections, 3/4 of Britons think their country is on the wrong track
May didn't think Britons cared much about the terms of #Brexit. A study of her June election fiasco proves her wrong

Relates the experiences of two boys, cousins to each other, one American and the other English, whose fathers are engaged in the Transvaal, one in farming and the other in mining operations. While the two boys are off on a hunting trip after big game, the war between the Boers and Britons suddenly breaks out, and the boys find themselves placed between hostile armies, where their thrilling experiences are brought out in Mr. Stratemeyer's best style.
England had for a long time been at war with France. Any vessel going to or from a French port was liable to be attacked by an English man-of-war, and the English government even claimed the right to search American vessels to see whether any English sailors were on board. And worse than that, many American sailors were accused, and falsely, of being English deserters and were taken from their own vessels and forced to serve on English ships. All attempts of America to adjust this matter peacefully were refused, and in 1812 America was obliged to declare war against Great Britain, and in consequence a squadron was fitted out to cruise along the Atlantic coast, to protect American vessels from the English.
