Understanding the United States of America







When I was in New York a few years ago a fellow blogger said to me something along these lines:
"When Europeans visit the United States they usually come to New York or California, which are liberal, cosmopolitan places very like Europe. 
"But the rest of the country - what me are not meant to call 'the flyover states' - is not like that."
This week's events have borne out the wisdom of those words.

Americans who visit London and Oxford would equally find the drive through counties of the Midlands , Yorkshire and the North East on their way to Edinburgh not quite the same as we have found out.
