Having children does make you wonder and worry about what the future holds for them. Britain, I don't think, is any good long term because changes to the environment (not helped at all by the US's rediculous governmental system and it's leader's inability to see the importance of maintaining the environment and/or stand up to the polluters' lobbyists) may well kill off the gulf stream and most probably sink most of the UK. Besides, with the rediculous position that Blair has helped land the UK in with regard to terrorism and petrol prices, it's preferable not to live here anymore. So what country will be habitable and hospitable in the next couple of hundred years? Australia is going to get too hot, I would imagine. The US is too dangerous. How about new Zealand? Somewhere pleasant, not too prominent politically and likely to be around in a couple of hundred years. Whaddaya think?
