    A question to you people not from merry old England. When you think about England, what stereotypes and images do you get of the people, the food, the landscape, the cities and anything else you care to mention?

    Nippy weather, conservative attitude and classic delicacy and subtlety, nice Queen's accent, Marks and Spencer, Fortune and Fornum (?) high tea, Oxford Street, Harolds, Hyde Park, Piccadilly, Chelsea, Eurostar, Waitrose, Odeon, terrible terrible tube, pricey living standard. On the whole a country I love and would love to revisit.
