How I feel about England right now.

I just want to call myself English have a English Anthem a English Parliament and a day to celebrate England.
Every nation has a day of independence a day or a day to celebrate their patron saint. England does but it is not recognized by the state.
Every nation has a anthem England has many, countless anthems to choose from but none are recognized by the state. Scotland Northern Ireland and even little Wales have their own anthems but England is not allowed. Even English counties have official state recognized anthems but England itself do not. When the English go to sporting events they sing the anthem of the united kingdom not that of England.
Both Scotland Wales and Ireland have parliaments or assemblies. England has neither.
Yes the English elite rule the United Kingdom but the English people gain nothing. I don't want independence from the UK but from Brussels. I I just want England to be recognized as a nation outside of the sporting world. It is England that suffers from the United Kingdom not Scotland. I just wanted to add this somewhere. That's all. I do not see it as Racism to be patriotic and wish for correct representation. I lived in India for a time I love and feel proud of the commonwealth my only issue with immigration is mass unregulated migration from eastern Europe can this be called racism? I think not.

Patriotism is honestly retarded... It's an unwavering support in the face of fact simply because you had the good/bad luck to be born in a particular geographic location - WHERE IS THE SENSE? Nowhere.

I agree but much like the word racism the meaning of the word patriotism has become distorted by political correctness.

As a Brit I'll share my 2 pence.

There is a difference between patriotism and racism, but there are also those who feel being British, is being white. Such as the EDL/BNP. So many people mix these up, including the whites of our country. Government crumbles at political correctness and tries to do anything not to offend our minorities, and then the people trying to defend these attributes are usually trampy racists. Quite the dilemma. The only places the St. George flag is hung is in rough, racially dominant housing estates and pubs, which gives it negative connotations. So it has become a touchy subject. But believe me, we're not losing our country, patriotism is shown when needed. When our boys are at war, or when we're playing Brazil in the World Cup. Patriotism isn't about shouting your country's name at any given opportunity, which is what makes people confuse it with racism.

The trouble is, our government are to afraid of offending people, so they over compensate and basically would like the asses clean of immigrants if they said its what they do in their home country, the second problem here is that you posted this on fynnyjunk that is full of retarded 12 year olds who haven't a ******* clue what goes on, if you illegal enter the UK and say that you are escaping violence you get what is listed in the picture, that's basically, a house paid for, council tax paid for, and 3 forms of income, and then extra if you have children, and the government wonders why our county is a ******** .
