Closed-mindedness of Anglophone culture

Obituaries like these, useful as they are, show how Anglo-American centric we are here in the UK… considering we’re in the continent of Europe (regardless of EU membership or exit) you would think that from this obituary, no famous French, Italian, German or Spanish person died apart from the odd chef who might have been known simply because they cooked here.
This is down to the complacency of anglophone culture… i.e. what’s the point of learning about people who speak other languages. And I stress, this is not a Brexit issue, there are plenty of ignorant closed minded people on both sides…
