Smile Don't say your English Re StGeorge's Day!

DON’T SAY YOU ARE ENGLISH

Goodbye my England, so long old friend
Your days are numbered, being brought to an end.
To be Scottish or Irish or Welsh that’s just fine,
But don’t say you’re English that’s way out of line!

The French and the Germans may call themselves such,
As may the Norwegians, the Swedes and the Dutch.
You can say you are Russian or maybe a Dane,
But don’t say you are English ever again.

At Broadcasting House that word is taboo,
In Brussels they’ve scrapped it, in Parliament too.
Even schools are affected, staff do as they’re told,
They mustn’t teach children about the England of old.

Writers like Shakespeare, Milton or Shaw,
Do pupils not learn about them anymore?
How about Agincourt, Hastings or Mons?
Where England lost hosts of her very brave sons.

We’re not Europeans, how can we be?
Europe is miles away, over the sea!
We’re English from England let’s all be proud.
Stand up and be counted, shout it out loud!

Let’s tell Tony Blair and Brussels too.
We’re proud of our heritage, not just red, white and blue.
Fly the flag of St. George, not the Union Jack!
Let the World know ENGLAND is back!

Says it all for me!!!!

Regards

Right on!

I wish we could get more of that here in the States...none of us are Americans anymore. You're either Arab American or African American or Asian American.

Rarely do you ever hear people say "I'm an American." Though it's mostly with the minorities that even designate themselves, most don't even identify. For the most part, you're either democrat or republican, not an American.

It seems we now live in a world where everyone must have a label so they fit in a nice little box for the statistic gatherers.

What can be a greater honour than to call yourself and American? Or an Englishman/woman or Scottish or Welsh or what ever?

As I've said on these boards before, my father was an American and if I went to live permanently in the United States I would be honoured to take an oath of allegiance and become an American and not expect to be called "English American!"

If you want to be a citizen of any nation then surely you should be prepared to live as a full citizen of that country, it doesn't mean you lose your history or culture it just means your part of something new with ties to an old life.

Regards

Ive got friends who came out from japan and constantly were asked in there were any samurai and ninja.

Do what we do and promote the stereotype, there are even shows starting to pop just just to promote the stereotype...

Some Europeans are amazed that we don't use wagons and all wear cowboy hats. It's quite funny

We do all seem to have certain ideas about various other countries as they do about us where ever we may live but when you get to meet those people where ever they may be from, you usually find that there are more similarities that differences.

Everyone seems to worry about the same things generally, give or take obvious differences, but on the whole people are just people where ever you may go!!!!!

Warm Regards to all!!!!
