Lol, quite a claim. I'm going to run this by my Irish relatives on my mother's side of the family and see what the consensus is.

I remember this issue being discussed in my old human resources department years ago. Strangely, personnel seconded to European or even Asian countries appeared to cope with the cultural differences better than those seconded to England or Australia. Where large cultural and language differences are expected, people are more prepared to accept those differences. In the case of England and Australia, the magnitude of the differences was greater than expected by those who were seconded. I am aware of some significant "failures" and the company started some training programs for those moving there.

I'm assuming he's talking about turn of the turn of the century. In which case, yeah he's kind of right.
