This is England

When people talk of England the immediate image that comes to mind is London, of Big Ben and the houses of Parliament and red buses. But there is so much more to England than this as I have recently found out. 

Amongst the busy times of life where we all work and watch tele and time passes by there is another part of England which exists which at times gets forgotten about by many – the beautiful English countryside. 

Recently I went to the lake district and was amazed by the beauty I saw an hour and a half away from where I live. There was lakes and mountains and fields as far as the eye could see. There was beautiful country roads passing into the distance through the mountains which spiral on into the distance what seems like forever. It was beautiful and breath taking. The long and winding roads heading to the distance as I passed on the country roads. 

Here was peace and beauty and nature. Here was the recharging energies of nature before me. This was a long world away from the big cities. This was the heart of England. The English countryside.

This is a picture I took at Wastwater lake. The beauty was breath taking and refreshing. I have never seen such beauty in England not natural beauty like this. The lake district certainly is the heart of England and there surely is no place else like the unique beauty of the English country. The whole British isles has splendid natural wonders and England possesses one of them diamonds. Where the mountain rivers flow, and the mountains are green and splendid. Here the forests are green and refreshing and the fields go long into the horizon. The waters are cold yet beautiful. 

I know all countries have natural wonder and natural beauty but this beauty is typically English. A beautiful sight of rural England. This is the real England before me and the English truth of beauty. 

While flowing along the long lonely country roads through the lakes and mountains I was stopped because of Bulls on the road. They didn’t care as this was their territory and their world. They were calm and placid and continued on the path they were taking over the fields. There was sheep scattered everywhere on the Hills and mountains and I was right in the midst of nature. It was beautiful. 
As the sun sneaks out from under a cloud and shows himself he casts his light onto the craggs and mountains way up high creating beauty. I could sit here all day and bask in nature. The joys are so much more rewarding. The view much more pleasing to the eyes and mind. 

Nature is my most favourite thing in the world. Nature is the natural world which we came from and which is the truth of life. I would hate to think of a day where there is no nature and all houses. It would be a horrible world. May mankind respect nature forever. We was born by the will of nature and in death we shall return to beautiful nature.

And I cant help but think – did those feet in ancient times walk upon Englands mountains green?

So in my own personal opinion I would choose the country over the cities for beauty and to spend time. With the beautiful little villages and the fresh air for me it is not even a hard choice. Nature is immense and wonderful. 

In my eyes the lake district certainly is the heart of England. 

Oh England I am in your garden breathing in your wonderful nature…

Scottish referendum

Once again the issue of the scottish referendum has rose its head.  Nicola Sturgeon has publically called for the second vote to make scotland independent from the UK since Brexit. She wants Scotland to remain in the EU and leave the UK.  

Is this a good idea?  Is Nicola Sturgeon seeking her own glory and on a power trip on her own and could doom the Scottish people to an uncertain future? 

Afterall the EU is at the worse it has been.  There is belief the French want to leave, alot of Italians dont like the EU, the Dutch want a referendum also. What if the EU collapses?  It is made up of alot of very weak democracies. Where would this leave Scotland?  Should Scotland link itself to countries like Greece and others which has seeked a bail out and gone bankrupt. Has the EU done these countries any good?  Greece blames the EU for its downfall. The founder of western civilisation in such a mess. 

I believe that Scotland would best staying in the UK.  Staying amongst the same island it belongs to mixed with the same ancestral history. We all share British blood together. We are all isolated together.  We are one!  Example I am from England and I have irish blood, I love the nature of Wales and Scotland. 

We are all mixed and share a heritage. Why does Scotland wish to be seperate from their English and Welsh relations? Alot of us have families mixed within the three home nations why divide it?  they should push for UK reforms and now is a good time to do it. Parliament needs massive renovation and I think a new building further north should be chosen to represent us all. 

Scotland must make sure they  dont vote on patriotic historical events.  This is ancient history. Does anyone want a border crossing from England to Scotland?  No this will damage many businesses and profit and trade within each other. Tourism into Scotland will be damaged as English won’t want the border crossing issue.  We should not be looking to divide the island but bring it closer together.  We dont want borders and divides we want togetherness.  We have had a wall between us before let that be the only time we are divided!!  

If Scotland stays in the EU then immigrants will enter Scotland for free…and gather at the border to pass into England.  Does Scotland want a jungle camp like the one in Calais on its soil?  Scotland alone is weaker,  England and Wales alone are weaker!  Stay together.  Scotland must remember as much as they love their nation that London holds massive finance,  is a european city powerhouse of which Scotland doesn’t possess. London whether they like it or not could be a massive allie to the scottish nation more than Brussels and Berlin.  Will Scotland be helped by Brussels or will they see it as a UK issue?  Wondering why England cant help?  This is one island and the scots might be seen as UK anyhow by the eyes of europe.  

If Scotland must demand a vote and push for another referendum they must fight for another EU referendum before a scottish one. This is your home island. Your British race and relations and ancestry.  We have had too much time in history divided. The future should be as one.  

The United kingdom together is strong and can survive the current storm.  We must stay together as one! 

One island,one people,  one name – Britannia!  Rule Britannia!
