Sybawrite

Woozy with cider

This makes me think of that Tango ad where the man ends up at the White Cliffs of Dover ranting about a foreigner’s view of their product…

It makes me want to run down the street shouting “yes, our weather may be a bit shit”, shouting “yes, our culinary highlights are biscuits and crisps”, shouting “yes, our public services could be seen as shoddy”, and shouting “but I’m glad to be British, because I belong to a culture that creates things as beautiful and honest as this…”.

Goosebumps, in a good way.

    From several thousand miles away … The first real heart-melt homesick moment after 8 years in Sydney!

    I posted this on my UK Pop-Folk mix a while back and it is still the best discovery I’ve come across in that compilation. You’re summary is spot-on brilliance.
