    Why? It’s full of Eastern Europeans

    Yep England is better, far more beautiful.

    “Why? It’s full of Eastern Europeans”

    Not to mention the pea brained rednecks

    Let me be very clear about this – I’m not talking shot people or politics. That’s irrelevant.

    And why would that be a problem? πŸ™„

    ‘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…

    Yup, England is beautiful – particularly this county. πŸ™‚

    I love England too and seeing it in full beauty thanks to nice long spells of good weather it’s ace. Even more proud of my home county just stunning and still relatively undiscovered.

    …..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? πŸ™‚

    Malham Cove is a pretty place, but some of the Lakes can be pretty good looking too

    Funny how members of the other home nations feel the need to chip in whenever someone dares to praise the land of England….. πŸ˜•

    tha’s because English people praising England is jingoistic, whereas Scots praising Scotland, the Welsh praising Wales etc, is simply patriotic πŸ˜‰

    My point backed up perfectly by johnhoo…….. πŸ™„

    Could you please tell all the English white settlers up here how nice it is down there so they might go back? πŸ™‚

    well beautiful scenery was actually invented by the scots so it’s only fair we mediate in such matters

    not sure what you mean there…do I come across as being non-English and having a go at the English?

    my humble apologies for not making the sarcasm more obvious 😈

    Not to me you didn’t. You came across as a typical whingeing englishman having a whinge.

    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.

    The case for the prosecution rests m’lud.

    I love this thread – I get so sick of people moaning about this country – it is indeed a truly beautiful place – I’m proud to be English, I’m proud of our tolerance, our humour and our spirit of fair play.

    PeterPoddy – but don’t you live down south somewhere?

    And I have to say despite living in England, Scotland wins hands down (apart from all the smack, sectarianism and teenage pregnancy of course ;))

    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 too am proud to be English.

    Well, I certainly can’t abide people like you, that’s for sure.

    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 πŸ™

    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.

    Imagine living in Holland!

    Thats a bit harsh. I’ve got nothing against the people or scotland itself – just the pets it chooses to keep (sorry that should read pests!)

    Ach you just need to be hard enough to ignore those wee things. Either that or be prepared with skin so soft, been using it for years and bit had any midge problems. If that’s the worst then I think we’re doing ok

    Well this here Suffolk was looking lovely in the sun today. No more than 5 miles from urban sprawl at any time, but the woods and reservoir were lovely. Dusty bikes, summer is here.
    Scotland’s nice but it’s not England.
