Seriously, where do you get it from that it's not acceptable to be proud too be English.

I've never heard of such a thing.


English flag flying has been frowned upon for years. In fact flying an English flag (even now) has for years been seen as overtly racist by many on these Islands. Mainly by the self loathing liberal elite. It's better than it was. Note the condescending tweet by Labour's Emily Thornberry and the furore it's caused. What's wrong with flying an English flag. Dear Emily obviously thought it was a problem rolleyes

Sorry if you can't see that Lily, but you will find there isn't only me and Alan Hewitt with the same views. And quite frankly it gets on our tits!!!

You are talking about people I don't know. So I googled and found this:
http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/21/emily-thornberry-resignation-explain-outside-britain

It's still as clear as mud. grin


Sorry it gets on your nerves about the English thing.
Personally, I wouldn't (and don't) pay attention to that kind of thing. I'm proud to be born British/English and now also a Canadian Citizen. And I love living in the States half the year, I wish I could be American too!

Scotland have their own national parliament in Edinburgh. Wales have their own national parliament (Welsh Assembly). Northern Ireland has it's own national parliament (Stormont). England does not and is governed by the UK Parliament of Westminster which has Members of Parliament from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England.

Too difficult to explain further without ruffling feathers, Lily. You'll just have to accept that a lot of (not all) English people get annoyed by it. Including me, Alan and white van man from Rochester lipsrsealed

This is an interesting debate and funny enough, I can understand the emotions here though I'm from one of these unimportant countries whose inhabitants do not speak English as their first language grin

In Germany, showing the German flag used to be an issue for a very long time, because certain chapters of our history weren't exactly what anyone would be proud of and because being German is just so wrong in so many ways and blah. It took us to the football world cup in 2006 when Germans finally started to show the flag big style and it wasn't embarassing because it was about football! That's what turned the tides.

Completely in contrast to this, all Germans are fine being patriotic about their state, their town, their region, their dialect etc. Local patriotism is big here and sometimes it includes showing flags of our states and singing local anthems (we have a national anthem plus various local anthems, the national anthem is good enough for football).

What would it be like to identify as a European? No, nothing like that. Nobody feels that in any way, it's meaningless. It took me to get to America and meet fellow German people there to finally get a feeling for what it means to be European and German. I really got a different perspective since that, both means a lot more now to me. I see the same with any Germans who live permanently abroad, not in any way though with those who have always lived here. It's strange, you have to go out in the world to realize what is your home.

Hi there



A little history lesson for you.... ENGLAND as a geographical and political entity has existed now for over two thousand years whereas "Britain" ir Great Britain" was the creation of a Scotsman funnily enough - James II (or VII if you are in Scotland). I have no problem with the inhabitants of the rest of the British Isles having pride in their own countries - and I'm even pleased that the Cornish have finally got recognition for their identity but when you can be pilloried as racist or even denied the opportunity for flying the flag of your own country (ie the cross of St George) which has happened on numerous occasions due to the politically correct brigade getting their way again then that is what gets on my tits.

Hi there


Oh and as Uncle Albert has also pointed out the fact that ENGLAND is now the only part of the so -called "United" kingdom which does not have its own governing assembly/parliament call it what you will.

Oh, and I don't regard God Save the Queen as my NATIONAL anthem either - Jerusalem or I Vow To Thee My Country maybe but never the former which is a paean to an individual and not a country imo.

I have my Canadian origin, but I am now an American citizen. I enjoy dual citizenship with Canada, and I also have British roots on both my parents' side. But I wouldn't call myself British-Canadian-American. I'm American. Proud, too, of my heritage.

Genuinely curious, Alan but how do you arrive at that number?

Hi there



Well Ted, king Alfred the Great who was referred to as "King of the English" ruled in the 800's so you do the maths.

I did the maths:

2014-800 = 1214
1214 < 2000

Also I think it's worth noting that the world "England" comes from the name of the Germanic people called the "Angles" who came to Britain in the 5th century, the Anglo-Saxon kingdom being, broadly speaking, what we now call England.

Britain, however, is an older concept, coming from the Latin name "Britannia" that was used to describe the region of Britain that they occupied. (Roman Britain only ever extended as far north as the Firth of Fifth Forth, but the word could be used to describe the whole island).
