It is now a case of Brittania doesnt rule the waves....or even our coinage soon.
The Royal Mint is removing the image of Brittania from our coins in the future. Scarey to think this may actually be because it upsets another culture or country....Heavens forbid we dont want to rock the world boat do we???
We are British, we live in Britain and Brittania is the symbol of our country!
The Royal Mint is selling 40 yr old pennies, plated with Brittana infull colour for £2.50 inclusive of carriage!!!

Who says this country isn't going down the pan bigtime ?? Anyday now we will be "told" that we will be going over to the Eurocrap (or whatever it's called) system "to fall into line" or somesuch dog's vomit. The rant alert lamp is flashing so I'll bite my tongue.

I'm not a racist or anything. But when we're not allowed to hang our national flag out of fear of offending some bloody foreigners, There's something wrong there.

Something needs to be done. We're being worked over by foreigners who come over and think they're gonna get a free ride. They need to know its not.

I think eventually the good old British reserve, tolerance (read "mugs")etc. is going to run out. Then we are going to have to nail our colours to the mast and say enough is enough.

Without going down the racial road, am I alone in experiencing my jaw dropping on the carpet when you see snippets on the box of schools ("darn sarth mate")with maybe one white pupil in the class of gawd knows how many ??

I'll get flamed for this I'm sure, but it would be interesting to know if anyone else would stick their head above the parapit and "maybe" agree ??

No, I'm not a member of any extreme group, right or left and that Mr Hilter bloke is not a mate either !

Diving behind the sofa.

Yours etc..........

Just thought (that'll be a first). Please ignore my username when listening to me rattling on about non-British persons!

The above will give you some idea of the state of play. I think the TV take political correctness over the top and give the impression we are actually overrun by foreigners, i don't think that is the case, however i don't agree that we should lose our Britishness and should fight to preserve it.

I believe this to be the exception rather than the rule and hasn't been isolated to the south. The tabloids are very good at finding these stories and using them to inflame emotions.
IMVHO it isn't the colour of peoples skin which is an issue but a lack of intergration into the local culture - that is human nature - look at all the Brits living in Spain or France who don't / won't mix with the local and can't speak a word of the local language.

The problem these days is other 'Europeans' having the freedom to come and go as they please claiming here there and everywhere along the way but I bet the number of those is still less than the full blooded English white chav leeches that see bleeding this country dry as their rite of passage

The Royal mint in it's "wisdom" is getting rid of Brittania,blame Brown and co for hating the English and for the idiot's voting for him,it's a private company that's flogging the coloured and gold plated ex British legal coinage and not the Royal mint,you have to listen to what that stuffy woman says in the advert.

Sydney, Australia is exactly the same. Banned Christmas carols and decorations in shopping centres (not all), public swimming pools closed to males one day a week (figure out why) even tho' it was built by WW11 returned soldiers and they can call me a "bloody pom" and it's not considered racist. Multiculturism is an absolute joke - me thinks.
