Since the Industrial Revolution which saw a huge number of country bumpkins flock on the city where opportunities were sprouting like parsley inside a well sewn patch of soil, an odd relationship between your city and the countryside has been festering- one that is both hostile and full contradictions. The self-professed city lovers would usually view country life as provincial, sheltered and closed faraway from the cultural diversity and vibrancy of a cosmopolitan cityscape.
On another hand, the nation dwellers would see the city being a machine that breeds tension, stress and hostility towards your fellow man. City types are notoriously unfriendly (be truthful, what number of you Londoners know your neighbours? As in going round for any bag and a natter kind of knowing, not only a simple nod in the street?) But similarly, country villages are renowned for ferocious gossip culture. The sort of gossip that would increase the risk for removalists gold coast characters of the Jane Austen novel cringe with embarrassment- that is certainly saying something.

Countless high powered journalists have boycotted (yes, and I am thinking about Rosie Boycott) the top smoke with its supermarket chains and reliance upon quick fixes, to the slower pace, Aga fitted, local produce saturated climes of suffolk or Devon.

If you've always known greenery along with the sounds of sheep inside the far distance, then you'd best stay put- but expect a very unfriendly neighbour any day who might not exactly immediately leap at your offer of an nice cup of tea...
