"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Sympathy For The English


"...What happened to you lot? Why have you let this happen? Why aren't you out rioting in the streets?

As an 'outsider' looking towards England, I see a country that is ashamed of itself for no good reason whatsoever. A country that has no identifiable culture, or to be accurate, a culture that has been swept under the rug and ignored. All other cultures and practices are tolerated and celebrated.

I see a country that is being screwed into the ground, bled dry. Parasites from all over the world flock to it to share in the feast. England's colonial past and proud history are not taught in the schools. Children are taught to be ashamed of the past, embarrassed to be English.

All you can seem to muster is a few 'tut tut' letters to the local papers or a rant on the internet. Of course, there are a few exceptions. A few brave souls who dare to challenge and try to open other's eyes. To speak the truth.

I thought I had plenty to be angry about when I started my blogosphere 'career'.

Little did I know how bad it is down south. You guys must be foaming at the mouth with rage.

But, who allowed this to happen? Who allowed the erosion of freedom and liberty, the petty rules to creep in, the rise of the socialist utopia experiment that has back fired spectacularly in our faces, (your faces more than our faces).

Who allowed the little hitlers to control your lives? Who allowed them to brand your country's flag as a racist banner? Who allowed it all to go horribly wrong?

You did. The English."


With thanks to Rantin' Rab for his thoughts; the whole article is over here, somewhere in 'Northern Britain'.

Just one thing: Rab also posted the following map which shows a country with something called Counties (how quaint):

while, in reality, what we have now is this:
Are you English? Are you sure?

  1. Good post.
    I'm Welsh and this hasn't happened to us because we are a minority in Britain of course.
    We promote 'Welshness' in our schools etc but in England the kids are told basically lies about English history as far as I'm concerned - they are made to feel ashamed.
    In England everyone is supposed to bow down to the God of multiculturalism.
    The local culture and heritage is being supressed and even the people are being replaced by foreigners (like Tibet).
    The only time previously I can recall (not personally) a people being told to be ashamed of who they are and of their history and having their national identity and pride squashed was 1930's Germany.
    And didn't that lead to some sort of backlash if I'm not mistaken...?

  2. You're right JPT - it's been happening for a long time now - the old Fabian tactic of slowly, slowly catchy monkey. I find it appalling already but obviously the majority of English people can take more pushing from the state. It's a combination of many things that have contributed to where we are now and it will take some unravelling - when Labour are voted out I'd like to see a scorched earth policy of our own.

  4. You're welcome Rab - it's nice to see it written down by a Scotsman for a change - when we English do it we're labelled racists or xenophobes.

  5. No, no, no.

    We, the English don't see ourselves like that. The illusion was created by the Scottish Mafia.

    I believe in England. I LOVE England and want it to return to its glory days.

  6. No, Fausty, of course we don't see it like that - the problem is that some English people don't seem to see it at all and haven't given it much thought. btw - glad to see you got your pc fixed
