Nanny Bans Saint George

Nanny Bans St GeorgeThose of you who bedeck your houses with the Cross of St George on St George's Day, April 23rd, may well be advised to avoid the People's Republic of Hounslow this year.

Seemingly Nanny's friends in the council there have decided that St George, Patron Saint of England, is socially divisive.

They are so worried about causing a "divisive rift" in their electorate, that they will not be flying the Cross of St George over the civic centre.

Now, at first sight, this may just about be palatable; if all others were treated equally, we all know how Nanny believes in treating people equally!

Unfortunately, and not surprisingly, this is not the case. You see, Ladies and Gentlemen, in Nanny's Britain some are more equal than others.

In particular the following organisations/groups are considered by Hounslow to be more equal than the English:

-The Palestinians
-The International Co-operators (can someone tell me who the hell these people are?)
-The Welsh

All of the above had their flags flown, above the civic centre, on their "special days".

One brave soul, Labour no less, tried to get the council to fly the flag. Cllr Peta Vaught, (Lab, Heston Central) put a motion to the ruling Labour Group's last meeting; to raise the flag over the civic centre on St George's Day, along with articles in the council's HM magazine and events for local schools.

However, her fellow councillors defeated the motion - with only one other Cllr Gopal Dhillon, also Heston Central voting for it.

Cllr John Connelly, a former Labour group leader turned Independent, put the matter rather succinctly:

"It is a decision of donkeys. Given that the council celebrates Diwali with fireworks and other ethnic minority festivals, I suspect many residents will be highly offended by what appears to be a snub to the indigenous community...Even a Scot like myself, who regarded Beckham as the hero of the European Championships in Portugal following his penalty miss, could not fail to notice that the community at large embraced the flag in the support of England."

He added:

"Indeed in Hounslow I suspect I saw as many residents of Asian origin displaying the flag on their cars as I saw in cars driven by white drivers...I imagine Tony Blair and his associates will be deeply embarrassed by this decision...".

I have said this before, and I will keep saying it until people wake up and take notice, we are becoming foreigners in our own country.

    I agree that we are becoming the foreigners and when you consider the relative birth rates of the various nationalties which we have here we shall be outnumbered and eventually England will become a Moslem state. (Is that the Thought Police banging on my door?)

  2. It is not the relative birth rates between the various ethnic groups, or indeed the differences in faith or customs, that make British people "foreign" in their own land.

    The issue is one of British people not being allowed to practice their customs and beliefs, through a misguided fear of offending others.

    Some diversity is good. Some diversity is bad. Be careful which type you 'celebrate'. Only highly trained council staff can recognise the correct kind with any degree of certainty.

    I thought this site was interesting until I came to the "We are becoming foreigners....." statement. All your efforts since this statement and after are negated by your outpouring of your "true" grief - "we" are being ignored. Nevermind the "we" cannot exactly - genetically or otherwise say who the "we" exactly are (catch-22? yes?).

    I've heard this same phrase in the USA, in India, in Taiwan, in China, in Quatar, in Canada, in Switzerland, France, ofcourse UK!, Germany, Sri Lanka, Mexico - and these are just the countries I have been to.. I'm sure there's a significant part of the worlds population who are becoming "foreigners in their own land" (dont bother explaining what "own land" is - taken from whom - given to whom?

    All your Nanny utterances turn out to be an outpouring of an impotent man - helpless - no-one listens to him. Dont worry - Ken - I did for a minute - and there are many more out there who'll keep your ego going.

    and yes, I'll stay anonymous thank you - your kind are just too ......!

  5. I didn't say "we are being ignored" I said that people need to wake up and take notice of what is happening.

    The "impotence" as you put it, comes from the inaction of the electorate to the actions of the government.

    This is the worst kind of trash I have ever read! Britain is a multicultural society and better for it. it has been for a long time and it should continue to be. all of this becoming foreigners is another fear tactic (something which I am sure you would accuse your "Nanny" of.)

  7. Take the trouble to read the original article and you will see that it is not about immigration.
