Comparisons and contrasts between the U.S. and the U.K. were made using excerpts from interviews done by Brian Lamb in London during November 2010 with Stephanie Flanders of the BBC, Lord John Wakeham of the House of Lords, Diane Abbot of the House of Commons, and Matthew Parris of The Times of London. Other video clips were also shown. The focus was on official differences between the two countries (how members are elected, impact of money in races, power of the prime minister) as well as specific issues (VAT taxes, housing benefits, out of wedlock children, and the costs of goods and services.) close
