(Just a brief clarification, my "Long live trad metre & rhyme", just above, was in regard to this video link from Donuel).

To "give it a rest" (Dave), from Manchester at least, there was a nice-looking full Strawberry Moon, low on the horizon, last night - with just one pic, my poem "Through the Night".

The league of nations was formed after WW1 and proved to be completely ineffective as WW2 proved. So, after WW2 the United nations was formed. That, to date, has also proved totally ineffective and has been so for nearly 80 years. It is a red herring that you keep throwing in and absolutely sweet FA to do with either this thread or multiculturalism. For heavens sake WAV, just give it a rest.

The fact is, less than half a percent of England's population in the 1950s was not born here &, due to mass economic/CAPITALIST immigrtnion, England IS a lot more multicultural now than then - whether or not we like it, denying that is foolish.

you both know that since the 1950s (when less than half a percent were not born here) England's population has changed radically

Why, with all your qualifications and world experience can you not see that as a racially charged statement? Making comments like that is either racist or totally insensitive. Either way you need to stop. But, hey, that is just my advice for if you want to stop being binned. Take it or leave it. No skin off my nose.

We should be planting more Dog Roses in England - along with the other native flora that our native fauna EVOLVED with.

Agree, Dave, to the extent that, until around the 1950s & mass economic/CAPITALIST immigration, England was an old old blend of European cultures.

And, whilst I was sin the Mudcat "sin bin" (hopefully for the last time), I noticed William Windsor out selling Big Issues, and a regular seller (almost certainly with 100s of times less wealth) falling for it by calling him "The Peoples' Prince".

If I'm called anti-immigrationist, I can accept it with some qualification but NOT "racist" (above), which is defamatory (&, making it worse, the posts - which did not have any racism in them - can no-longer be read.

I love our world/our United Nations being multicultural - including English culture in England which IS on the decline and, thus, I'm one of those trying to do something about it.

Furthermore, I am anti-monarchism without being against any particular royal (I agree with Charles Windsor on some environmental issues, and have said above that Elizabeth Windsor happens to be quite a good public speaker - whether or not she actually writes all the words, as Steve mentions above).

I suppose that that's the steam train that runs under the bridge by the Premier Inn in Bury. I've leaned on that bridge, not far from the Peel monument, many times to see the train go past, though I haven't been on the train. My two kids have (now in their forties!), as it was one of the treats provided by my mum and dad when they stayed with them, just a mile away down Radcliffe Road.
