Bright future for England

Bright future for England
About a year ago I visited Windsor Castle - one of the official residences for the British Royal Family and Queen's principal weekend retreat.

As I was leaving the castle I noticed a young woman, dressed in a typical Victorian style. She was looking with an inscrutable emotion at a muslim couple - the man, dressed in a traditional white thawb was taking a picture of the castle with his iPhone; the woman, in a black jilbab, most probably was not allowed to have a phone...
