We figured out one time that all of GB would fit inside Oregon with room to spare.
And only 3 million of us to shove out of the way...

Quite a different story entirely - yes?
Essex and Kent, not inner areas.

There are problems all over, seems to be getting worse.

Where I come from the local Hospital was shut, now a housing site, the next nearest was remodelled at half the capacity, and they are talking of closing that

Yes, so I understand. If this country sinks into the sea, it'll go stern end first!

ugacrew; I have yet to see the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Yellowstone National Park....
I visited Niagara Falls years back. If I remember right there are two Falls - the Horseshoe and the Bridle. Weather was thick snow and icy as hell. But the smaller of the two Falls (I think it's the Bridle Falls) was spectacular... vast areas of its cascading water having frozen into awesome shapes. There's a huge tower there, atop of which is a viewing area, I believe, and possibly a diner of some description. Niagara is well worth a visit ...

Actually, Texas is more than twice as big as the entire British Isles. The Isles are almost exactly the same size as New Mexico all together.
