Newest Review: ... As the Romany's say - we borrow the Earth, we don't own it. WEST KENNET LONG BARROW Turn left out of Silbury Hill carpark and drive up to the top of the hill. As you drive look to your right and you will see a small gate and sign pointing the way to the barrow and a little layby. When you get out the car turn back to look at Silbury because you get a great view of it from there! To get to the long barrow you need to go through the gate and walk up a country track. It's a gradual incline so nothing too strenuous! The views from here are wonderful and if you are as lucky as we were you may see some crop circles as they often app... more

This Sacred Land I moan about England a lot. I hate the politics, the cynicism, the over-priced housing and the sheer determination to cover every field with blocks of concrete. I hate the soaps and game shows on the telly, the class system that supposedly doesn't exist, the jealously of the have-nots; the arrogance of those who have. I loath the rail system that's forever in a mess (and they want to put prices up again?), the NHS that struggles at ground zero because admin need a new clipboard. I get jittery when our prime minister speaks because all I see is a puppet waving his hands in the air - whatever party they're from! But there is so ... Read the complete review

*THE GOOD* ██ Justice ██ There will never be a perfect justice system, and our justice system needs an overhaul and constant change to keep up with modern society. But the fact remains that England's justice system has been copied throughout the world. Unlike many other countries, we treat criminals humanely and presume a person is innocent until proven guilty. It has to be proven that the defendant *without reasonable doubt* committed the crime in question . Capital punishment is illegal which is surely part of marking a civilised society that believes in reform and humanity. If a person is murdered, no mayter *who ... Read the complete review

I have only been abroad once, and the thing I remember the most is the weather and the scenery. Yet I have been on vacation in England many times, and the things I remember the most is: The weather (that gorgeous day, that terrible day), the scenery (that beautiful landscape, that dump of a place), the laughs, the upsets, and the fact that I was still close to my home. I don’t think it matters where you take your vacation, as long as you enjoy it. All you need to enjoy your vacation is company that you enjoy being around, the ability not to take things too seriously (your on vacation, enjoy yourself!), and an idea of what you want from your holiday. So why pay ... Read the complete review

I have a social disability. I am not a gossip (all the time) or a wallflower or a usurper or a space invader or a bigamist. It’s much more serious than that. I don’t like tea, and in polite English society this is about the worst crime you can commit. My best friend’s dad still refers to me as “the one who doesn’t drink tea” (followed by an incredulous chuckle) although he has known me by name for eleven years. I think if I had stolen a family heirloom on our first meeting I might have been forgiven by now, but the fact that I refused a cup of tea has led to him eyeing me suspiciously every time I enter their home. The ... Read the complete review

This country has gone to levels which I never thought possible in my lifetime. The yob culture at the lower end of things, the greed culture at the other end of the scale. But even that as filtered through to all levels. What has happened to England?? We no longer have an indentity, multiculture has put paid to that. But even that is not manifested itself in an even manner, we have vast areas where the crescent replaced the cross and the majority of the populous stem from one area/culture. Our image abroad is wrecked by the image of the shaven headed lout, not all shaven headed persons are loutish, but that is judged by others as such. Our ... Read the complete review
