- I've been away from the UK for a few years, and whenever I return I'm always surprised at the spread of housing estates into what would have been green space (not necessarily green belt) when I was younger. These are often fairly expensive large houses with a front and back garden.
Sometimes I think the English tendency to want a larger house with its own green plot of land to the front and rear is going to destroy the green belt and the countryside.
There's nothing wrong with living in a nice apartment if that means having more countryside and green space in surrounding areas. Why not focus on urban renewal and better use of the land that we've already developed like old industrial sites before encroaching further into surrounding areas? Does that just make too much sense?Dec 1, 2012

- Lisa Barducci- our first circle, that is, people we expect to meet at moderately intimate weddings (siblings' in-laws, first cousins' families) include over a dozen nationalities, languages and at least four major religions last time I counted; more numbers if one counts where people met or lived. It all embraces the earth from one edge of Pacific to another but via the other, that is, lands route rather than across the Pacific. And some varieties in other ways too, such as colours of various sort. So while it is not quite as much of a nuclear family spread as yours, I applaud your spirit and more in the family variety of choices.Dec 2, 2012
- As for UK generosity, that is the very opposite of how the British empire came into existence in the first place. And to expect people not to return the compliment is unreasonable.Dec 2, 2012
