It’s days like today that…..
Why? It’s full of Eastern Europeans
And why would that be a problem? 🙄
‘Tis a truly beautiful country, no argument.
I was out in That London’s famous London, yesterday. Went over to Greenwich. Nothing like the view from the top of the hill, there. Wandered over for a lovely pint in the Union pub, then over to Whitechapel for a curry. Such simple pleasures, but sometimes, there’s just no place like home…Posted 8 years agovinnyehSubscriber
…..Prove beyond all reasonable doubt that England is simply the most stunningly beautiful place on Earth
This is what I live for.
Well, bugger me, give a bloke a couple of nice days and some flowers to look at, and look what happens. Talk about rose tinted. You newly married or something? 🙂Posted 8 years agobigGMember
England = country with pretty scenic bits spoiled regularly by the populace and stupid rights of way laws
Scotland = country that is largely glorious, freedom to roam and populated by the kindest, most liberal thinking and welcoming folk in the world. Oh, and we make whisky too.

Grumm; PP was expressing his onion, and not stating any kind of fact. And as appreciation for one’s country is purely subjective, and no onion can ever be more righterer than any other, his statement that England is beautifulest is the subjective truth.
England is praps more geographically and environmentally diverse than Scotland, mind. From the majesty of the Lakes and Fells, to the serenity of the Norfolk broads, England has a bloody lot to offer.

I have just emmigrated from Scotland – well 6 months ago now – to Englishlandshire. I love the scenery of Scotland and miss the grandure of the Highlands and the windswept beauty of the Northern Isles (which although I haven’t been there much in recent years I miss achingly). But I have to agree – the northern part of England has a lot to offer. The Lakes (where I now find myself) are almost like mini-Highlands. It’s a shame there are way too many people in the Lakes though… and despite the access issues being less liberal I think there is more scope for riding here than in a similar size area of Scotland (Trossachs?)
Equally I am rather enjoying the Dales, Pennines, Northumbria and North Lancashire. I kind of lose interest once you get south of Lancaster though as it gets waaaaay too urban down there! I do need to explore a wee bit further afield still as there are many parts of this country I haven’t been to yet, as well as Wales south of Machynlleth….
Variety – it’s what it’s all about!
It’s going to take me a sodding long time driving to get back to Orkney again though 🙁Posted 8 years agogrummMember
Can’t say I’m particularly proud to be English, but I do really like Britain, and wish people wouldn’t whinge so much about it – for me the main problem is all the negativity. We are very lucky to live here and be able to indulge our favourite hobby, and should appreciate it more imo.
