Alternatively, the whole of me could be "sent back" to a valley in Ethiopia. But if that's where we all came from, it would soon become quite crowded.

Like most people, if I were to "go back to where I came from", I would first have to be dismembered. Various parts of me would be dispatched to France, Norway, Peru, the Middle East, and God knows where else.

Apply the "logic" of this letter and we would all have to pack our bags. Most of those who identify as "white British" or "white European" are descended from people who left Iraq and Syria around 10,000 years ago.

So sad that the only songbirds on Helvellyn this weekend were meadow pipits. Grass so short from sheep grazing even skylarks absent from most of the hill. Beautiful, sunny spring days aren't the same without birdsong.
