Homeland in decline.

England, as drawn by inhabitants, circa 1360.

From a Reuters review of A Rough Guide To England:

Gone, it seems, is the image of a genteel country awash with Englishmen politely tipping their bowler hats, groping through the London fog and being kinder to pets than kids...

...They are gently mocked as voracious consumers of celebrity chit-chat and "as a glance at the tabloid newspapers will confirm, England is a nation of overweight, binge-drinking reality TV addicts."

The Galloway Chronicles
refuses to believe such twaddle, but reports these new developments only in the interests of full disclosure.
