Hello. Today I will not write the text about one event, but only quick history. I had in mind to write the text about massacre on the Utoya island three years ago, but I think that is still to hard to write about such a horrific event. Also today is the birthday of prince George but in my opinion just the fact that you are born as a prince does not mean that you are more important than any other person in the world.
So here is quick history of 22. July.
1706 – The Acts of Union 1707 are agreed upon by commissioners from the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland, which, when passed by each countries’ Parliaments, led to the creation of the Kingdom of Great Britain.
