Today, if you're English…
Yes mod, i know your a bit left wing, i don't expect you to do the decent thing and remove the BNP tag, but lets be proud of being English without being branded racist!
One can be certain that EVERY time one makes patriotic noises, some uber aggressive far leftwing socialist thicko will rear their ugly stinking head(s), making those who are proud of their identity feel look they are behaving unacceptably.
Why is it ok for Scots, Irish and Welsh to be proud and not the English?
Why do they have representation in the form of their own assemblies and the English don't?
Why do councils make people who fly the English flag, take them down?
Why do we now feel ashamed to express pride in our country?
I have American friends who cannot believe how we are here. How we have no loyalty to british companies, have no pride, can't fly flags etc etc.
We have lost our way and it has become "cool" to be negative about our country.
I believe it's down to thenasty left wing socialist thought police, who's ideals are based on the evils of communism. Shame on them!
Happy St Georges day, just make sure you don't express your pride in your country!Posted 7 years agowillardMember
Bloke on radio 4 this morning was saying that he was a roman soldier, born to Israelite and Palestinian parents, that was killed/matyred for being a christian.
Apparently became very popular in the victorian era for being "muscular" and generally warlike and cool, but fell out of favour in the years immediately after the first world war. He only became more prominent in the mid-90's.
And if you want Britishness…

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark satanic mills?
Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!
I will not cease from mental fight,Posted 7 years ago
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.
