Half the people due to perform in London’s millenium parade on January 1 will be Americans.

Of the 12,000 performers who will depart from Parliament Square at noon, 6000 of them will be cheer-leaders and other assorted americana flown over in 30 transport planes.

With other nationalities dispersed amongst the other 6000 participants, the United States will have more representation on the parade than any other country in the world including the UK.
