a bit far north for me, I have to take my passport just to get in and out of Essex, let alone the inoculations that are required

You might need your passport soon ifScotland have another referendum to break away from England
.<div abp="1138">I wonder how the vote would go if England had a vote to say "Goodbye to Scotland"?

We past "The Angel of The North" a few months ago while traveling up to Newcastle. Why people rave about it, beats me. It'sugly.<div abp="1475">
Can I say though, we liked Newcastle, far better than Edinburgh.

Don't worry about it. We, that are privileged to have been born in God's Kingdomin the United Kingdom of Northumberland and Durham, have known we live in the best part of the Country anyway!

As for the Angel , it's a matter of personal taste, but like it, or loathe it, it is an icon of what the true North of England is all about.

Ain't biting. After all, the steel actually came from the Yorkshire side of the Tees which isn't part of our wonderful Kingdom!

Oh come on Flash, the air pollution up north now is far superior to the air pollution, even where you live. You canput London and the surrounding area's where the sun don't shine. The last timewe went down to London, I said to the Mrs how you can chew the air it was that thick
.<div abp="1157">
It's bloody site grimmer in London, and extremely more crowdedthan up North.

Mind you, I must admit it's a bit colder up here than down south, it takes some time to get used to it

)how they let Scotland have the Royal Yacht beats me, now we went to Newcastle and thought that a great place for a few days away.

Going up to visit a mate who lives in Low Willington Co Durham. I'll ask him to take me out on a conducted tour of the area, you always get to know more things that way.
