(Added: I thought the temperance movement came from the USA?)
I was told that by someone English when I lived in the UK, I don't remember them saying it in a disparaging way ( as in a sort of "they drink, so it began there" ) more as something that they considered was a "fact"..so I never doubted them ..
( something else for me to "look up" and see where it really originated, which part of the USA, and why, if it was the USA.. in the wee small hours of the night )..
When I lived in the UK I used to travel regularly to the North of Scotland..( RAF bases there ) loved the journey and the people..used to bring back loads of haggis ( which I don't eat ) for expat friends ...
