Well, that’s yet another British Prime Minister gone. I have plenty of personal opinions about May and Brexit (especially as someone who lived in the UK for most of my adult life and felt necessary to leave after the vote), but instead of a rant I’ll just post this notorious satire depicting Britain’s first PM, Robert Walpole, from 1743, by George Bickham the Younger, titled ”The Late Prime Minister: Lo, What are all your schemes come to?”. Images are powerful and a picture is worth more than a thousand words.

Well, we come to the close of a very sad chapter in British politics 🤦‍♀️🇬🇧 . I did feel sorry for Theresa May, but as time went on, her premiership has become a monumental case study of hubris 😐 . I'm sure we have a bright future as a country, if only we can figure out what it is that we all want 🤷🏻‍♂️🌈 . #brexit #theresamay #resignation #london #greatbritain #sad #gay #gays #gayboy #gayguy #gayboys #gayguys #gaysofinstagram #instagay #instagays #queen #queens #queensofinstagram #instaqueen #anotheronebitesthedust #brexitmeansbrexit #arroganceofpower at Downing Street

Today Britain’s second female Prime Minister bid an emotional farewell to the role she considered the honour of her life. : Theresa May has been an incredible leader in my opinion. She has stepped in to the breach to try and bring order out of chaos, to serve the country that she loves, and she has done so to the best of her ability. In addition, the changes she has made to our country in terms of mental health support has been much needed. : Thank you Mrs. May, your efforts and endeavours have been appreciated by so many and will continue to make waves in our great country for years to come. You have done us proud. : #theresamay #mrsmay #primeminister #ukprimeminister #pm #ukgovernment #number10 #10downingstreet #politics #ukpolitics #womeninpolitics #ukparliament #femaleprimeminister #sadday #uk #greatbritain #brexit 📸: @10downingstreet

It's Queen Victoria's 200th Birth Anniversary today. So here are some facts about her. Victoria was born on 24 May 1819. Her real name was Alexandrina Victoria. Queen Victoria's birthplace, Kensington Palace in London, is now home to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. She became Queen very young, just a month after she turned 18, in 1837. Victoria's reign lasted for more than 60 years - that makes her the second longest reigning monarch, after our current Queen, Elizabeth II. Queen Victoria's husband was Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, who was her first cousin. They married in February 1840. Women typically wore their favourite dresses on their wedding day, regardless of its colour. But, Victoria opted to wear a white satin and lace gown. This began a tradition of white wedding dresses that continues today! She was only 4ft 11 tall and had to be seated on a raised platform in order to be seen during events. Victoria moved into Buckingham Palace. She was the first sovereign to rule from the palace. After a long reign and a long life, Queen Victoria died in January 1901, aged 81. . . . . . #knowledge #knowledgeispower #doyouknow #history #historyfacts #worldfacts #queenvictoria #highness #majesty #kensingtonpalace #britain #greatbritain #gkfacts #royalfamily #royal #gk #generalknowledge #facts #birthday #england #ireland #buckinghampalace #london #reign #kingdom #duke #duchess #duchess #queenelizabeth #queenelizabeth2 at Kensington Palace

Me encuentro sumergida en el estudio del colonialismo Británico en Norteamérica. Voy a estar unas semanas un poco out en cuanto a entradas en el blog por exámenes, pero no por mucho tiempo 😁 La reina Isabel I falleció en 1603 sin tener asentamientos fijos en norteamérica, a pesar de sus esfuerzos por conseguirlo. Pero muy pronto la primera colonia Británica en Norteamérica sería una realidad cuando con su sucesor el rey James I se estableció en Jamestown la primera colonia inglesa permanente, financiada por la London Virginia Company. En 1924 la colonia llamada Virginia se convierte en propiedad de la corona. La llamaron Virginia en honor a Isabel I, que era popularmente conocida como "la reina virgen" ya que se negó a casarse y reinó Inglaterra en solitario durante más de 40 años (algo insólito y muy valiente por su parte teniendo en cuenta la sociedad estrictamente patriarcal de la época). Tampoco tuvo descendencia. Virginia prospero rápidamente gracias a la exportación de tabaco. Su clima caluroso favorecía su cultivo y acogió a miles de inmigrantes llegados del viejo mundo que aportaron la primera mano de obra. #Virginia #colonialismobritanico #norteamerica #coloniasbritanicas #historia #edadmoderna #JamesTown #USA #EEUU #unitedstatesofamerica #estadosunidos #thirteencolonies #eastcoast #northamerica #unitedstates #america #americancolonies #uk #unitedkingdom #reinounido #inglaterra #england #elizabethI #JamesI #britain #granbretaña #greatbritain #britishhistory #historiabritanica at Jamestown, Virginia

Stereotypes are one of the most dangerous things which we face everyday. I perfectly understand why we have them: the world is so incomprehensibly vast and we are naturally afraid of facing it in its fullest. I get that. Really. Though the stereotypes we created to easen the interactions with this world, are a real danger. They make us believe that we know things. That we know people we hardly talked with. Whereas the reality could (and generally is) the complete opposite. Not all the Russians drink vodka 24-7. Not all the British are arrogant. Not all the American are obese. Not all the boys and men are obliged to be strong, never showing their emotions. Not all the girls and women are dreaming of getting married and having children. Not all the old people are wise. Not all the young people are reckless. Not all the religious people are brain-washed sexist. The list goes on and on as there’s no shortage of stereotypes as well as there’s no shortage of fears. No shortage of the things which are yet to comprehend. Those stereotypes may ruin peoples’ lives, too, undermining their self-confidence, making them follow the society’s expectations instead of their dreams. I think that, whenever you meet anyone, however hard it may be, try not to judge. Try not to categorize. Try keeping your heart and mind open. at Piccadilly Circus

This very day, 3 years ago my entire life broke into myriad of tiny pieces, impossible to reassemble. It broke with such a noise that it still haunts me in my darkest nightmares. Few words forming an unspeakable gap. After several years I can say that time doesn’t heal. And neither do any of the meds, though they make the life bearable a bit. The only thing that helps is moving forward, adapting, evolving and changing. It hurts like hell and there is no pleasant shortcut, but eventually, through all that pain, it helps. It gives reasons to live, too. Little, tiny reasons like achieving this or that, seeing things, but, when placed together, they provide with some sort of a path. Something else from the void of pain and despair, at least. Not very pleasant, but change. However, I am grateful for the experience. It taught me a lot of important things. It showed me what the wonderful people my friends are, always having my back. Life is full of such things. They are called “experience” and are supposed to make you stronger. They also make us appreciate things we took for granted. It reminds that there is no “granted” at all. Enjoy everything you have while you can, because you never know when it will be over. at St Dunstan-in-the-East

At the first glance, there is nothing extraordinary about this street. In fact, it’s pretty neat and simple, a typical Oxford beauty. However, not for those who see. It was this very place in wintertime which inspired C. S. Lewis to write his famous Narnia series. Remember the first appearance of Narnia to Lucy? Ornate door resembling one from the wooden wardrobe, smiling friendly fawn and the lonely lamp-post... All of that really exists right opposite the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin. This tiny street was turned into a great snowy wonderland, a whole world by the imagination of one person. The power of imagination never fails to impress me. I think that imagination is our superpower, which helps us to transform the world, to create better future along with captivating stories. And who are we without the stories we absorbed? Whom would we be without them? at University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford

How clearly can you see the people around you? How much of them themselves is left in their appearance to you? And how many your very own hopes, expectations are mixed into that perception of yours? In fact, the longer you know the person, the least you know them. Past is the most volatile thing ever, with events themselves always changing inside the minds of their witnesses, for them noticing different aspects of those events, interpreting them in their own way, forgetting things and filling the emerging gaps out of their own expectations and imagination. The same is with people. Years spent together can blind easier than anything else. Lead to believe that there is nothing else to discover and you know perfectly well what to expect from a person. Whereas, in fact, every person is a bottomless ocean, which is always slightly changing, keeping the greatest part of their very essence to themselves. Not comprehensible. Not even designed to be completely understood. When meeting an old friend of yours, keep in mind that with every passing second, they are changing. That they aren’t anymore the same person you first met all those years ago. Never would be again. And neither are you. at Kensington Gardens
