So no one has been to Stourhead?

Went there for a school trip when I was in primary school. We dressed up as Ancient Greeks. It was nice.

Have you ever been to Britain before, rooster?
I've already stated the answer to that question. Unless you have anything relevant to add, I suggest you stop mucking up my thread.

He does have a point though. Even if you're really strapped for cash it'll be worth visiting, if only to have a look at your planned housing or the areas you're considering to get a feel for them.
No but I'm guess your what? 90? Cause you just so darn mature </sarcasm>

Of course, I'm already planning on that. First I'm just trying to figure out a handful of places that I want to check out.

I think I regret this.

In other news, Jerusalem should be our national anthem

wtf for?

FYI: Jerusalem isn't in the UK. Why push our tongues up the Jews arses? Have you seen modern day Jerusalem? Why would we want to build that in England's green and pleasant lands? Or are you some religious zealot who thinks we should have deep religious undertones in our anthem?


How about we either carry on singing about crushing Scots or we write something new without all the reach-around for Israel?

Yeah, its always been a dump. the song was originally about bringing religion to the UK. Stupid choice for 21st century.

I wouldn't sing our anthem if it was Jerusalem. What an awful awful choice.

Jerusalem was pretty amazing during the Golden Age of Islam, there was an outpouring of science and art from the whole region and a level of secularism we're yet to match.

But unless Rooster has a time machine on hand that's not a particularly relevant point.

How about we carry on singing about crushing Scots

One day, when I've nothing better to do, I'm going to track you down, drag you into the street and go totally Bannockburn on your sad, self absorbed, whinging little ass.

You can sing all you want about crushing rebellious Scots. You'll just be singing an octave higher with your new crushed scrotum.

Twat.
Hang on, I'll just check my personal care factor for this week : nope still don't give a fuck

Our national anthem is about murdering the shit out of his kind and calling them wankers, we probably aught to cut him some slack.

I suppose when you revive a thread people stop paying attention to the first few pages. u__u

England may only be a stepping stone to other countries or it may not. I want something outside of America but nothing too alien. I'm not that adventurous. But hopping over to the Euro continent would be really easy so I might not feel the need to move to the continent proper.

The problem I have is where people, much like yourself, for whatever reason, deem it aceptable to deride an entire nation of individuals due to geographical location. It displays an ignorance not only of the individuals you are insulting but also of basic human nature.

 There are those within any culture who, for their own personal reasons, will turn on those outwith that culture. I don't do that shit. I take people as I find them regardless of colour, race, religious belief or the place they were born on an atlas.

I am proud to be a pure bred Scot, and consider my country to be one of the best places in the world, but, and your'e not going to believe this, I also respect an Englishman's right to believe in Queen and country and all that goes with it. As an aside I once punched out one of my oldest friends for insulting a young English couple who were up here on holiday. Nice kids just looking to enjoy themselves in a different location when some drunken twat starts laying off about not being able to spend Scottish notes South of Cumbria. Not their fault and I gave him fair warning.

It's a bit like a Texan believing his, or her, state is the best in the Union but still being proud to be a part of the United States of America.

Our national anthem is about murdering the shit out of his kind and calling them wankers, we probably aught to cut him some slack.

See above.

I did my best as way of explanation.

I don't know Jerusalem, but it surely can't be any worse than the anthem you already have.

Even though I'm in favour of the monarchy, I agree that God Save the Queen is a shit anthem. I Vow to Thee My Country or Land of Hope and Glory (hell, even Rule Britannia) would be better. Jerusalem is specifically English, so that wouldn't work. It'd like having Flower of Scotland as the UK anthem.

Yeah. It's pointless now anyway, it was written to be played as a propaganda piece during the Jacobite rebellion. I have no idea why it was kept on. It's basically 'yay, the House of Hanover!' and while I support the royals, it's hardly anything to do with Britain (then or now).

The song Jerusalem is not about the actual Middle-Eastern town of Jerusalem.

"And did those feet in ancient time?" is a rhetorical question, the answer to which is supposed to be "yes! They did", because Jerusalem is not about Jerusalem, but actually about Blake's hypothesis that Jesus Christ literally, physically travelled to the United Kingdom during his gap year (see:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_years_of_Jesus) on a druid internship programme and that this trip is part of what imbues Britain with its magical properties.

Although I believe that Jesus also went backpacking in India during this time (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_years_of_Jesus#Jesus_in_India), I also reckon he made it in time to start his work placement at Stonehenge, so I actually agree with Blake and for this reason I too am of the opinion that Jerusalem would be a fantastic national anthem, because it would teach us some propositions about history.

Hey, you know what should be the national anthem? Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1. Not only is it uplifting, not only is it a fine piece of craftsmanship from this country's most iconic composer, but it is quintessentially English and you can dance to it and you don't have to sing. What more could you ask for?
