About England calling

This blog is devoted to England and the English. It will deal with the origins, people, history, culture and  accomplishments of the English. That part of the blog is designed to provide readers with a sense of where the English come from and the great part their country has played in the shaping of the modern world, something which has been denied to  English children in recent decades as political correctness has taken a grip on English life through its religious promotion by the British political elite of  all our major parties.

The blog will also  address the British elite-sponsored Anglophobia which currently afflicts England and politics insofar as they affect England and the English, especially the democratic deficit produced by devolution. The aim here is to demonstrate how this Anglophobia may be challenged and top provide the tools to do just that.

I shall be posting most days.

      To say that everyone who lives here is English is simplistic. If I move to the USA, am I suddenly American? Perhaps because I then live there I should start trying to change it to make it suit my English preferences?

    • newsextra1962 says:

      No sir we are not all English, people who come to live here(Immigrants) are not English, they may be called British but are certainly not English.

    • Kenny says:

      You must be very old to think in that 1960s way. Good luck in catching up!

    • Master Distiller (Third Floor Distillery) says:

      “To create a fair world must be the aim.”
      No, that must NOT be the aim. Only that which is beneficial to the ethnic English, to make them whole and complete in their own country MUST be the aim. The rest of the word can rot.

      “We are Human Beings,first and foremost.”
      Wrong again. There are the English, and then everyone else.

      “Hate and Racism is the tactic used by the”Powers That Be”(Bankers)to cause thier,Divide & Rule policy to carry on.”
      If by hate and racism you mean how the Foreign Hostile Elite(TM) in The City hates the ethnic English because of their racism against the whole world including the English, then yes, you are correct. But as history has shown, “racism” only flows one way: from the invading filthy Third World skraelings to the English. If the English move to protect themselves it’s just Hate and Racism(TM).

        You remind me very strongly of my late grandfather, who would have me believe that humanity falls into just two groups: the Greeks (us) and those who would like to be Greeks … Pity the two of you never met. I’ll relieve you of my wretched presence straight away, Master, and go “rot” somewhere quietly.

        Have a long, happy life in your English world–luckily I exist far away from you.

      • Why are you so afraid of the English, Ariadne… RH

    Well I know one thing the BBC are Anglo-phobic……so they are racist and discriminatory
    Directly you challenge them they hide behind gobbledeegook and self denial ,with dumb innocence, enhanced with stupid replies after passing you from one senior advisor to another, pages and pages of PC of useless meaning-less crap
    Heads need to Roll in the BBC, it is a Nasty Animal out of control.

    Great site but if living here you cant be English then living in Scotland you cant be Scottish. Country without borders will never happen although in theory it is a good thing we have to protect what we have got as its being slowly eroded its just we have had britishness shoved down our throat, we are English all we are doing is standing up and saying it like everyone else does is that so wrong?

  4. Richard says:

    I would like Nonracist to expound further on his world view. His/her opinion is an established viewpoint that despite my best efforts I really do not understand. I am English ( a Londoner) and I identify myself as such. But that identity is not based on the geographical location of my birthplace (Hyde Park Corner) but on the cultural, philosophical and political influences I experienced during my formative years. These influences were, I believe, distinctive to me and hundrend of thousands of other children growing up around me. This makes my sense of identity (English) significantly different from that of my neighbour, who spent his early years some 8,000 miles away before he arrived in this country.

    It seems to me that your view makes an assumption that my sense of identity causes me to believe I am somehow superior to my neighbour. I can assure you it does not, but I do believe is is significantly different. No doubt my neighbour may well take the view that because of his migration he has a wide experience of cultures to inform his opinions and I can appreciate this view.

    You say we should ‘ …….forget borders, forget nations’ and that ‘……hate and racism is a divide and rule policy’ which is a conspiricy by ‘……the powers that be (Bankers)’. My friend let me enlighten you, that couldn’t be further than the truth! Big buisness does not want to “divide and rule” across nations or races, they want exactly the oppocite. They want the sort of world you desire. A world without borders and nation states, a world without people who have a cultural identity ,a sense of patriotism and thefore unique consumption preferences. They want what you want , they want us all to be the same,so similar we forget our national preferences, so we all become the same.
    Then they can sell us the same things all over the world. Coke, Starbucks, Apple, McDonalds, Microsoft, etc etc. So I suggest it is you that should ” please wake up”!

    I’m sorry you share the delusion that outsiders may call themselves English. Self-hating people care only for fashionable opinion as a rule, which means you probably use the terms English and ‘British’ interchangeably, and want for a proper sense of both. Allow me to help. I posted what follows to an English democracy site run by a former adviser to Tony Blair. It was used to invite comments on the ‘new English fascism’. I’m quite proud of that. Bear in mind my opinions are not necessarily those of Mr Henderson.

    First ‘British’ is not an identity. It is a cloak of anonymity enemies reach for when trying to divert from English accomplishment. It is used to suggest burdens shared more or less equally throughout these islands, masking the damage inflicted on England and perpetuating the anonymity that allows it to continue. Is immigration really ‘British’, or an almost exclusively English curse ? You know the answer. Myself I couldn’t care less about ‘Britain’.

    Nations are not the product of the political convenience they serve. Nations are special. The etymology of the word could not be less equivocal. Nations are peoples related by blood. Countries are not nations. Countries are geographical spaces occupied by nations. For a thousand years England, comparatively isolated from mainland Europe, enjoyed one of the most settled populations in the western hemisphere.

    I am a nationalist. Since I am a nationalist, and in view of the meaning that properly attaches to the word ‘nation’, I believe nationalism without an explicitly racial component to be a waste of time. Racialism advocates separation. It has nothing to do with ‘hate’. It has nothing to do with ’supremacism’. It is far from something to be ashamed of. It merely asserts biology as the overwhelming determinant of human capacity, providing the surest means of preserving true human diversity.

    I submit that racial identity is integral to national identity, that race and culture are indissolubly linked, that one is a by-product of the other. These two, indeed, ‘cannot be separated….(for) only the people who created a culture can sustain it. If immigration changes the face of America – and of Europe – nothing else will remain unchanged’ (McDaniel, G. & Taylor J., A Race Against Time, New Century Books 2004).

    And since English culture is European culture and European culture necessarily white, racial awareness is nothing short of vital if the English, my people, are to survive.

    It is by setting the borders at race that we protect who we are. If you are not white, you are not English. We should assert this with vigour, and for two reasons. First because it is true historically, and because the moral right of a people in their own homeland to define themselves in whatever way they see fit is no-one’s damned business but their own.
    Second, and crucially, because biological egalitarianism, the notion that human differences show only superficial variation between individuals and groups, is a lie. It is a lie carefully cultivated by internationalist propaganda for reasons of political advantage. It is a lie nonetheless. The English are who they are, their culture is as it is, in large part because of biology. Defend biology and you defend the nation.

    A Russian writer observed that a man with no racial sense is like a dog that never learns to bark. I hope you still have time. Better late than never.

      “and because the moral right of a people in their own homeland to define themselves in whatever way they see fit is no-one’s damned business but their own.”
      –True, but fortunately the racists are in a minority so thankfully your definition is not that of the country as a whole.

      “only the people who created a culture can sustain it.”
      –Who are “the people”? Shakespeare is dead, but people of all races can still appreciate his work.

      You have a strange view of “culture”, like there are all these disparate silos of culture that should never be mixed. Culture grows, mixes and changes over time. Some of the changes are for the better, some for worse. Cultures influence other cultures and create new cultures. You seem to assume (correct me if I’m wrong) that transference of culture is both one way (immigrants changing the inherent culture of England) and wholly negative. Surely though, immigrants will absorb existing English culture as much as they influence it and many of the changes are positive. In any case, you seem more concerned with the “Englishness” of something than its actual level of quality.

      “English culture is European culture and European culture necessarily white”.
      –So if French, German, Scandanavian (white) people migrate to England, they can rightfully call themselves English immediately, but the (English-born) grandchildren of immigrants from the Caribbean can’t?

    The English are a good and proud race of people. Support and nurture your race in the same way other races look after theirs otherwise, in the future you will regret its loss. The English have a great language, culure and customs that should be encouraged not wiped out.

    I found this very interesting site having seen it mentioned in comments at the Daily Mail.
    As a foreigner married to an English lady, one of the first things I discovered some time ago, was that it seemed as tho the English were in a hurry to give away their country. Jeesh. If you want to sell the place that badly, get it over with quickly and auction it on eBay. I recall my first visit here many,many years ago and was amazed at how safe your streets were, and what an awesome (at the time) your post offices were. I’ve seen more of this country then my wife has, having traveled far and wide with music groups on what we called shotgun bookings. What an amazingly beautiful country this is. OK, sue me but, the world was a better place overall when Britannia Ruled.
    Now ppl not just here but Europe and to an extent even the USA, are living under the dictatorship of political correctness. Not a good thing for any of us.

    Was having a surf through the blogosphere the other day, as an alternative to the usual porn, music, sci-fi and supernatural that constitutes most of my casual browsing.

    I’m quite interested in English nationalism , as I feel Hollywood and the likes of the global media have squashed a lot of the quirkiness and eccentricity which I feel gives England it’s charm.

    Unfortunately what I found seemed to take me back to school bullying -i.e. gangs of aloof and aggressive jocks (in the American sense) picking on the ginger kid with NHS glasses etc.

    Rather than the promotion of individuality and diversity, there seemed a tendency to congregate around the marching in rank and file. One word that seemed to crop up was “homogenious” (sp) which conjours up in my mind supermarket processed dairy products i.e. milk with the cream skimmed off in a factory etc.

    Instead of the warmth of the English people I grew up with, the cosy pub with the bar philosophers putting the world to rights etc, what I found was stuck up, pretentious and boorish cliques – not the sort of people I’d like to spark up a joint and play scrabble with.

    My life experience has taught me that there’s class and class, and the two are different. A person of class can be upper, middle or working , but still approachable and open minded. Rich and poor alike can be great friends, free from jealousy. Conversely, a person without class is intolerant, stuck up and shallow. A tell tale sign of the latter is obsession with appearance and wealth.

    From what I’ve read on many such sites there is an implication only white people can be true ethnic English- how do they work this out? A person whose English ancestry dates back to the doomesday book, whose grandfather fought in the war is according to these less “English” because they have a Pakistani or Jamaican parent than somebody who has never set foot in the country but *looks* the part. As I said previously, obsession with looks suggests serious emotional immaturity.

    In the same vain, there’s those who’ll complain about the suffering of the indigenous working classes due to immigrant labour, but at the same time make fun of the dirt poor folk appearing on Jeremy Kyle and so forth- with more name calling such as “chav scum” etc.

    There is a lot for English people to be proud of, but it’s a shame that we are often prevented from having a voice due to the hijacking of our flag by not so much Nazi people but simply *nasty* people.

    After her divorce from Guy Richie, Madonna claimed many English men were “emotional retards”. Whatever you think of Madonna, I feel she is hinting at a very valid point, even from the perspective of an English man. The reason I believe that we get crap such as snobbery, bullying , sexism, racism and homophobia is because we are frightened of engaging in true personal intercourse. Sex taboos surrounding homosexuality and incest made be at the root of this. Southern Europeans often beat their northern counterparts at relationship closeness, though to be fair those same people often treat animals worse.

    There’s a big difference between the “stiff upper lip” or emotional stability and the sneer, or emotional insecurity. The difference between the pleasant and unpleasant characters tends to be that the latter are putting on a front, a mask because they are frightened of their real selves.

    Perhaps if some of those who march with the likes of the EDL could show as much loyalty to their women and children as they can to a flag, we’d have a better England.

    Cornwall is not England.
    Granted, Cornwall has been effectively treated as part of England for a long time. However, the legal position is clear: Cornwall is a Duchy, not a County. It has a separate legal entity from England as it has never been incorporated into England. See here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitutional_status_of_Cornwall and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornish_people and http://www.thisisnotengland.co.uk/

    It is true that Cornwall has seen a great influx of incomers, of which I am one, nevertheless substantial proportion of people of Cornwall are Celtic in origin, just the same as the Welsh and the Scots, describe themselves as Cornish, have distinctive Cornish traditions and a separate Cornish language. The people of Cornwall constitute a nation and are recognised as such by the EU, despite the lack of recognition by the UK government and its efforts to suppress and ignore the demand of the people of Cornwall, such as the petition for Cornish Assembly, signed by 50,000 residents.

    Even many incomers also support the movement for law making Cornish National Assembly along the lines of the Welsh and Scottish assemblies.

    Hello,

    As a Scotsman, an English parliament seems a laudable and good thing to campaign for. I wish it every success.

    I was perplexed though at some of your various articles and comments concerning either Scotland or the SNP. Surely it would be best if both countries were independent and properly supportive and friendly, just as say there’s cooperation and friendship with Australia and New Zealand?

    Regards,
    Michael
