It's still raining, and I live on a boat on a river and it's going to flood and all the land's going to disappear...

What does Britain mean to me? Green fields, hayfever, rain at Wimbledon, getting repeatedly beaten at sports we gave to the world, and chavs.

I am afraid I shall have to counter the point made about landrovers. The Americans invented the jeep, which became civilianised two years before the landrover appeared. The first landrover was built on a jeep chassis. I know that means one point to the Americans, but I had to do it.

You just saved me from spending several hours trying to find the right words to describe what I think of this place.

Probably for different reasons than Everchanging thinks. I'm embarrassed by Britain but for different reasons.
