    We should celebrate this more, re-claim it from the right wing racists.

    I have a dream that one day we will.

    I've encountered lot's of anti-English racism. I had to learn to fight when I was a boy because my father was from England, I was beaten up so many times.

    All my life, whenever I've mentioned my English heritage I've faced real hatred.

    Sadly, it's a socially acceptable kind of racism.

    Does this apply to the native people of England?

    Time to reclaim St George’s Day for all English, say leading faith figures

    St George should be a figure of national unity and pride. That’s why we – a coalition of English faith groups and campaigners – are ‘reclaiming’ England’s patron saint and demanding he becomes representative of all English peoples.

    We demand him back from those who promote racism and extremism, and from those who say that St George can only represent a single ethnic group.

    We want to promote a new, relaxed and confident, English national identity. A place where a ‘hijab’ is as welcome as bangers and mash, and no one is attacked for their race, religion (or lack thereof) or any other belief.

    That is why this St George’s Day we are reclaiming St George.

    As patron saint for England, St George is there for everyone living in England. Too often he has been hijacked and used as a symbol of triumphalism and division by those on the extreme Right. St George needs to take his rightful place as a national symbol of inclusivity rather than a symbol of hatred.

    Although the Crusaders used the Cross of St George, St George actually lived before the birth of Islam and should not be associated with any hatred of Muslims. He is respected by many people in the Middle East because of his origins there.

    Therefore on St George’s Day, we call upon all people of goodwill to join us in:

    • standing up against the hijacking of a national hero by those who promote Islamophobia, antisemitism and other forms of discrimination

    • opposing the modern ‘dragons’ of hatred and intolerance

    • saying: ‘As the diverse people of England, we are comfortable with difference, and each other. St George’s Day is a time for highlighting harmony and peaceful national pride.’

    "Islamaphobia" is such bullshit....if there's "Islamaphobia" and "Homophobia" and all that nonsense then why is there no "Crackerphobia" considering MY culture I'm not allowed to express or hold dear if you ask the SJW types.

    I'm not afraid of Islam, I'm sick to fucking death of people giving a pass to folks from different cultures who should fucking know better about what they are doing what they are preaching.


    I read a lot about "right wing racists" yet if someone was to ask me "Lyle, name a hateful public figure in England" the FIRST name out of my mouth would be Anjam Choudary....hardly "right wing" very authoritarian though, he does love HIS freedom of speech, other people's? Not so much.

    Worse than Choudary? He calls for death to those who oppose his views?

    And Choudary wants to subject 100% of the population of England to Sharia law regardless of their religious affiliation.

    Does he? I mean I don't know the guy or what he has said. People say Donald Trump "hates all Mexicans" when that is just hyperbolic nonsense. I DO know that Choudary has been asked if he wants Sharia in England and he has not minced his words in saying "Yes".

    Now IF Nick Griffin is as you say, and IF he does believe that then he is quite wrong. IF Nick Griffin merely believes that the traditional English values must be upheld then he is right.


    I'm not saying that extremists won't agree with my views on culture, traditions, lifestyles, but what the west has in terms of liberty, freedom, government accountability is unparalleled and must be protected.

    Nick will hide behind freedom of speech etc but he does want England to be white. He can not say that because it would be illegal so he says English instead of white.
