The difference, Joe, is that if you're going to shoot driven birds in the UK, you're going to encounter that kind of weather. Just a bit damper than chasing quail in TX. One reason they wear those funny clothes is that they offer pretty good protection from the wet.

Apparently no response from the British, except outrage

"Protection, Federation, and Union: The Global Impact of the McKinley Tariff upon the British Empire, 1890-1894"
http://www.academia.edu/292177/Protectio...mpire_1890-1894

In Shefield, even as the McKinley Tariff Act was pending, various manufacturers and workers met to demand retaliation, with their mayor sending a letter to every other mayor in the United Kingdom calling for action. A few months after the McKinley Actís new rates were implemented, Shefield firms had been forced to reduce wages, and the Act "sent thousands of workers into the streets at a blow...England is suffering frightfully...from her inability to offer the slightest resistance to hostile tariffs, even to one so unjust and so injurious as the MíKinley Tariff."
