My impression of the English countryside has always been influenced by the movie "Tom Jones". I thought the country was inhabited by robust, ruddy-faced peasants engaged in wholesome activities like sheep-shearing. Now it turns out the place is a sleazy mosh pit infested with party animals with names like Pippa Joynes, who is apparently not related to Tom Jones. For the sordid details see "Wild Beach Parties Ruin Lord's Island Retreat".
