  1. I will always feel fortunate to live in my country, but I’ve got to admit, it’s truly emabarrassing when our Pumpkin Head is our President.
    I’m so sick and tired of what is happening with the circus that is our government. I sincerely hope that come 2020 we get someone with integrity, honesty, as well as REALLY being interested in making America great again, actually gets voted in.
    I can’t see remaining here if he is voted in for another 4 years.

  2. When you consider that in England, so much is free, most of the health service, most of our education, (we have an amazing public transport system in London) and many services, police,, fire brigade etc that keep us safe – there are many advantages.

    I do feel ashamed of the history of the English aristocracy – things like the slave trade are so shameful. The industrial developments that in many ways started here (with the development of the cotton factories etc) which have gone on to spawn mass industrial enterprises – which have led to large scale pollution and economic extremes in wealth – it makes me weep.

    I love the countryside here. I love that England is so lush and green, the rolling hills, the rivers and forests. I love London because it is an amazing melting pot of different cultures and languages – London isn’t particularly English at all. London is Polish, Greek, West African, Indian, Bangladeshi, Spanish, Korean, Lebanese….London is quite amazing.

    I have lived in other parts of England (and I have family all over the UK) and it can be very different depending on where you live. I grew up on council estates on the outskirts of an industrial city. I ended up living on a beautiful country estate in picturesque countryside – a private woodland, meadows, tennis courts and swimming pool etc. Countryside life in Berkshire was very different from living in a poorer area up north. London is different again. The extremes in London are scandalous. I have lived in six different addresses since I have been in London, mostly very nice areas. But possibly especially when I loved in Kensington, I saw extremes – a house that sold for £10 million just round the corner from a run down block of flats with horrid old net curtains at the windows and graffiti all over it .

  3. I hate what is happening in my country right now, particularly everything surrounding the giant cheeto-in-chief. BUT, I’d rather live here than almost anywhere else. If I had the money to do and go wherever I wanted, I would have a home in Guatemala, one in Egypt, one in Israel and probably one up in freezingland (yes, even though I have not once stepped foot there0)
