I am immediately intrigued by the British perspective on private property
rights.  Do you not own your own property and have a desire to have government
encroachment tempered?  Or is it too late for the Queen has won the day?  I
suspicion that the Isles landowners have long come to some comfort with their
situation.  I, along with many in the US,  just don't know what that situation

I want to talk to you privately about doing a feature on my site.  But for now
give this readership an idea on private landowner rights in the UK.  Do
landowners fear government control or is there a symbiosis between private and
state?  What is your comfort level with this control?  Do you see US owners of
land particularly obsessive/compulsive and paranoid?
