England never ceases to amuse me. The BBC reports on a recent competition to find the greatest English icon. And just what might the greatest icon be? The Queen? The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben? The Spitfire? The red double-decker bus? Cricket? In a moment of hubris, perhaps Oxford University? Well, it seems that the answer is none of these things. The greatest English icon is in fact, ta-da, the cup of tea. I'm moved to point out that tea comes from China but I wouldn't want that minor quibble to get in the way of the celebrations.

Now, after all this blogging I think I'll indulge my Anglo-philia and abandon you all for a cuppa.
