Rule, Bri­tan­nia!

Country Life Every Week - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

HAV­ING never read COUN­TRY LIFE be­fore, I’m rather dis­ap­pointed at my­self for wait­ing so long. It reads like a con­ver­sa­tion be­tween my fa­ther and I, cov­er­ing top­ics large and small and reignit­ing a saudade I had for­got­ten was there. I loved your Best of Bri­tain num­ber (July 5) cov­er­ing the Down­ton Abbey ef­fect, Agatha Christie, coun­try-house style and the Pony Club, to name but a few things.

Be­ing Bri­tish has, in the ev­ery day run­ning of things, be­come syn­ony­mous with re­bel­lion. Read­ing through some of these ar­ti­cles, my pa­tri­o­tism has re­turned and I am proud to say the Bri­tish still have an at­ti­tude of re­bel­lion and rein­ven­tion, one I hope we will con­tinue to prize as we have given so much to the world.
