On Monday 31st may I attempted a walk from London to Brighton nice try and a fun day walking through Middle England .Culture stands still in the country side,but this is the image people visualise when England is mentioned. The thatched cottage we know about,but its the other world we for get,the world of difference,the world trapped in its invented histories,and the world blinked by its whiteness.
On the walk was a guy from Zimbabwe he noticed the sideways glances first,the ultra polite
smile,the cold look,the expressed surprise about walking in the countryside.
We where walking in a strange land.England is a divided land.
