The countryside is a white environment but it's not because any other colours are driven out or made to feel unwelcome. The countryside has survived a sunami of immigrants from all over Europe in the last 15 years and many of them have decided to stay and make it their permanent home.
What townies (of all colours and creeds) cannot seem to get their heads round is that country folk are conservative with a small "C". They like their way of life and they are not anxious to change it to suit others. By all means come to the countryside,enjoy it,drink it in wallow in the wildlife and wild animals but don't make the mistake of pointing out how you think they've been making mistakes all these years.
It's official here in Spain too.....

Saw a program years ago where a city dweller moved to a so called quiet country village, he was trying to take the farmer to court because his Cockerel was to noisy in the morning and the Black Smith because his hammering all day long was annoying?

I recall back in the heady days when you could visit the pub, one not far from me is surrounded by farmland, it was a hot day so we were all having our meal outside when some holidaymakers from London complained to the staff that the smell from the farm was disgusting (they were muck spreading the fields at the time) and could the staff go and tell the farmer to stop and could the staff also do something about the flies as this never happens where they come from in London when they eat outside.

Yep but not a free car park, like other hotels provide?
I know, but if I want get an hotel in town, the car parking is part of the hassle. Could have paid the same but be out of town with free parking. Could have paid a lot more and still need to pay to park.
I looked as soon as the restrictions were eased (lad had the virus a couple of months ago and it was killing me and the Mrs that we couldn't see him), Jurys came up at £100 for 2 for 2 nights. Can't complain at that - especially for a Friday and Saturday night. Normally costs a load more.

When Terry's chocolate factory was still running any westerly breeze would waft the smell of choccy over the UofY campus . A student in Wentworth College wrote to Terry's to ask them to stop production during the wee small hours as he could not concentrate on his studies due to the smell , I kid you not.

Play nice, kids. Two posts deleted - in danger of being ad hominem and getting out of hand.

For clarification - while Lil's may be a free fire zone, it still operates under general site rules so subject to at least some semblance of order. If you are going to take a swipe at each other, banter is fine but just attacking and being confrontational is not. Some decorum is still expected.
