Goodbye to my England , So long my old friend


Goodbye to my England , So long my old friend

Your days are numbered, being brought to an end

To be Scottish, Irish or Welsh that's fine

But don't say you're English, that's way out of line.

The French and the Germans may call themselves such

So may Norwegians, the Swedes and the Dutch

You can say you are Russian or maybe a Dane

But don't say you're English ever again.

At Broadcasting House the word is taboo

In Brussels it's scrapped, in Parliament too

Even schools are affected. Staff do as they're told

They must not teach children about England of old.

Writers like Shakespeare, Milton and Shaw

The pupils don't learn about them anymore

How about Agincourt, Hastings, Arnhem or Mons?

When England lost hosts of her very brave sons.

We are not Europeans, how can we be?

Europe is miles away, over the sea

We're the English from England , let's all be proud

Stand up and be counted - Shout it out loud!

Let's tell our Government and Brussels too

We're proud of our heritage and the Red, White and Blue

Fly the flag, Saint George or the Jack

Let the world know - WE WANT ENGLAND BACK !!!!

This article is NOT motivated by any National Front directives. Nor is it in any way racist or intended as a detrimental comment towards immigration. In fact, I myself have close ties to ethnic origins and welcome anyone from any part of the world onto our society who has moral and considerate ethics.

Nevertheless, England is ENGLAND just the same as India is India or China is China, yet they would not tolerate foreign reprobates or insiders that work against their country's traditions so why should we?

I am sick and tired of the bureaucrats trying to abolish our traditions and culture just to be politically correct.

Christmas... Oh sorry... Winter holidays!!!

Why is it that there are local politicians that are trying to prevent us from using the phrase "Christmas"? Christmas is called Christmas for a reason... To celebrate the birth of Christ.

The crazy thing is, most ethnic minorities do not have a problem with our religious festivals and customs. It's only the political do-gooders that object. Why are they so bent on destroying our customs and traditions?

If you go to some Muslim states and associated territories, you can get arrested for getting publicly involved with any form of religion other than Islam. Fine, I don't object to that. It's their country and I fully respect their traditions. So why are our traditions being disrupted by idiots who have nothing better to do other than trying to justify their own existence?

Flying our flag with pride... If you do, you will be dealt with!!!

Some local authorities have banned residents from flying the Union Flag or St Georges cross. I'm sorry, but have I missed something? Has this country been sold to someone else???

How bloody ridiculous are these bureaucrats that say we cannot fly our nations flag within our own country? If someone from another country flew their country's flag in the same street that the St Georges flag has been banned, the same local authority as mentioned above wouldn't say a thing! I cannot believe our Queen and country is allowing this to happen. IT IS BORDERING TREASON!!!

I used to work for a major charity in London, and there were all sorts of employees and volunteers that hailed from different countries including India, Pakistan, China and other parts of South-East Asia. When a festival came up involving any of the aforementioned groups, everyone without exception joined in the celebrations and welcomed the influences of their respective country including flags and customary attire. It was marvellous!!!

However, my patience runs out when we are not allowed to celebrate our own festivals in our own country. Even the ehtnic minorities like to join in, so why are there political players that are trying to stop it???

At the moment, there is no such thing as a law that prevents us from celebrating our traditions rather it's something that local politicians try to implement, but if we don't reel in these political do-gooders, they are going to mess up our country and traditions forever.

A bit of reassurance...

The objection mentioned in this article are NOT aimed at the ethnic minorities in our country, it is aimed at anybody that is trying to take away our England. However, to anybody reading this, regardless of what your colour or race, political or civilian status THIS IS ENGLAND and DO NOT try to take it away from us.

If you are English or a visitor from afar that support our tradition, please pass this article on by clicking on the "Email Editorial Address:" link at the top-right of this article and send it to your friends.
