Fewer than half of us say we feel proud to be British, an official survey revealed yesterday.
Researchers said older people had a strong attachment to Britain but that the young were more prone to listen to the appeals of nationalists.
We’re just not proud of being British any more
Critics say younger citizens are likely to have lost interest in Britain because of the breakdown of teaching of British history in schools and because politicians and state organisations do not endorse Britishness.
Pupils are now taught 20th century history in which Hitler and Stalin are the predominant figures.
British achievements in defeating Napoleonic tyranny or in resisting European conquest in earlier centuries have little place.
The British Empire has begun to be widely regarded as responsible for racism and exploitation in former colonies.
Its successes in spreading wealth, technology and learning are ignored, as are British achievements in suppressing slavery.
You need not be.
Substitute the word “American” my sweet friends.
Government officials in the U.S. and in Europe are slowly stamping out the essence of what it means to be “American” or Australian” or “British”, downplaying our pride in our heritage in order not to “offend” people of other nationalities, namely “Muzlims.”
In so doing, We have lost our very identity.
Perhaps some of the ingrates should try living in a Muzlim country for a spell. I’ll give them one day before they come crawling back to the shores of freedom.
Not even a day.
If we keep allowing the dreaded, contagion PC to spread, the Muzlims will succeed in taking the “Great” out of “Britain” and the “United” out of the “United States.”
Are you proud of your Country?
High time to take our pride back.
What say y’all?
