Independence Day

Happy Independence Day to all American visitors!

And, as I am sure that the lovely American people are far too busy enjoying the fireworks to read this blog, this related article from the Royal Website might be of interest to British readers. Some of the newspapers complain so much (and, in my opinion so needlessly!!) about the number of immigrants from Eastern Europe, King George III’s speech about the loss of America is very revealing about how British people were immigrants in the past: ‘Poland contained nearly 10, 000 Scotch pedlars...’ Funny, too, how the newspapers call British people who live overseas ‘ex-pats’ but call people from overseas who choose to live in Britain ‘immigrants’.
