Call You and Yours: How do you feel about the United Kingdom?

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 05 June 2012

On this week's Call You and Yours we're asking 'How do you feel about the United Kingdom?'

The bunting is out and the union flags are flying to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The Olympic torch is touring the country reminding us that the Olympic and Paralympic games are just around the corner.

So with the eyes of the world focussed on us, how do you feel about the United Kingdom?

Have the street parties, the pomp and pageantry of golden carriages and boats on the Thames changed the way you feel about this country? Have feelings of patriotism stirred or been rejuvenated?

Or does the commercial tat and flag waving fail to disguise the problems we have in this country. The faltering economy, the disillusioned youngsters who are unable to find a job and the many communities still feeling broken after the riots of last August.

Do you feel proud of the United Kingdom or sorry for it?

Call us on 03700-100-400 before ten, 03700 100444 after ten, or email us via our website at www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/youandyours ; leave us a message or a name and number where we can call you back.

Presented by Julian Worricker
Produced by Karen Dalziel.
