Diplomat's Daughter Hits Out At British Lads
- 'British boys really suck,' says US ambassador's teenager

BRITISH blokes are a disgrace, according to the daughter of the US ambassador in London.

Lack of dress sense, inability to communicate and unattractive looks are just three of the sins apparently committed by local boys, reported 15 year-old Mary Catherine Lader in posh gossip magazine Tatler.

"British boys really suck. As sexy as I once thought guys with British accents were, their lack of appealing social skills and poor dress sense soon overshadowed the attraction," said the teenager, a pupil at exclusive girls school St Paul's.

Ms Lader, who lives with her family in a 35-bedroom house in Regents Park, tried to avoid lumbering her diplomat dad in a tricky situation by speaking favourably of Britain. "It sounds terribly undiplomatic and I certainly do not want to start an international conflict so I should add that I love the English countryside, the Scottish highlands and living in London."
