Despite the fact that Liberty GB believes in our 300 year-old union, I will make an exception allowed by St George’s day to write specifically about England – and I write as a proud Englishman. I will not bore and depress you with details of the many anti-English forces acting against us. Rather, I will outline just why Cecil Rhodes so memorably stated that ”To be born an Englishman is to win first prize in the lottery of life.”
When the world twice descended into warfare and savagery over the
last century, the English were on the right side. We were instrumental
in defeating Kaiser Wilhelm’s imperialism and we stood alone when we
declared war on Adolf Hitler’s Germany – whilst Adolf himself dreamed
only of an Anglo-Germanic empire.
Even in war, we retained our decency. The Quisling left will mock
this, of course, but by which side would a surrendering soldier prefer
to be taken prisoner? The English, of course. Not for us the inhumanity
of the SS, be they German or Lithuanian. Not for us the death camps of
the Japanese and not for us the Russian rape of Berlin women. And why
not? Because we are English, that’s why not.
After the War, when the left-wing socialists took up where Hitler
left off, so the English again came down on the right side of history.
Admittedly we had our own communists/ socialists (just as we have today,
personified by UAF, Hope not Hate etc,) but not for us the Gulag,
the torture, the genocide, the shattered lives, the broken families,
the destroyed infrastructure and environment – for us it was still
Farmer Giles in the countryside, still the boisterous working men’s
clubs and still the bowler hats and umbrellas in the City.
what of empire? Well, whether one agrees with empire or not, there can
be no argument that after independence the countries which retained our
democratic and judicial systems went on to forge their successful way in
the world. Some chose to discard our values and became pestilent
hell-holes such as Somalia; some never had the good fortune to be ruled
by us and were consequently unable to prosper. What is the difference
between hellish Haiti and bountiful Barbados? Simply put, English
Whilst on the subject of empire and colonialism, I have a quick
question for the liberal left: Why is it considered racist to colonise
other people’s countries, but also racist to resist the
colonisation of one’s own country? If this question can be answered
without mentioning self-hatred, anti-white/ English hatred or treason, I
would love to hear your polite and well argued thoughts ...
An Englishman was responsible for the abolition of slavery. The zeal
of William Wilberforce drove this accomplishment, enforced by the Royal
Navy, and although we are still blamed for the evil practice, not enough
is said to our schoolchildren about our role in stopping it, nor about
the role played by Arabs in their attempts to continue it. How many
schoolchildren are aware that Saudi Arabia only signed up to the
abolition of slavery in 1973?
free world owes everything to England. The Anglosphere, the
English-speaking nations – consisting of America, Canada, Australia and
New Zealand – are all rooted in the values of England. They represent
freedom, liberty and wealth – attributes not in plentiful supply in much
of the world where English values have had little impact.
These English attributes are made manifest in the Third World. The
schools, the charities, the infrastructure projects, the doctors and the
volunteers – not all English of course, but from the Anglosphere in the
main, all driven by a sense of fair play, decency and altruism, and
again derived in the main from ancient England.
Football, cricket, tennis, rugby, snooker – invented by the English
and taken around the globe. Again, there is no doubt the liberal left
will sneer at this, but with English sport came the underlying ethos of
bravery, sacrifice, teamwork, honesty and fair play, all combined to
foster the basic ideologies imperative in fully functioning, free and
And what of the modern world? The English built it. The Industrial
Revolution began in England and enabled the Anglosphere to progress from
subsistence for the masses to affluence and lifestyles the rest of the
world could only dream of. The inventions and the inventors behind so
much of what we take for granted today came from us, from the English,
When Prime Minister John Major reflected on his country, he was
subjected to ridicule, but what he said resonated with the majority of
English people, the main exception being the liberal leftists whose
central role in life appears to be the destruction of all that we hold
What is England? It really is
cricket matches on drowsy summer days; football and rugby matches in
the pouring rain; drinks and jokes around a blazing fire in an ancient
pub; the magnificent architecture in our cities; Richmal Crompton’s William;
the rolling hills of Devon on misty mornings; the ancient churches in
the smallest of picturesque villages; the orderly queues; the museums;
the love of animals; P. G. Wodehouse;
thatched cottages; the gentle calm of the people; the green fields of
England viewed from the aeroplane after a holiday in sunnier climes; the
cheerfulness and stiff upper lip; ancient hedgerows; stoicism;
Remembrance Sunday; irony and gentle humour; aristocratic
eccentricities; the seasons, torrential autumnal rain and the first real
day of summer; ancient regimental flags in cool and calm churches; the
first sea of bluebells and daffodils; the fanfare of royal events;
picture perfect fishing villages; our ancient and unbroken history; Magna Carta; Common Law; the Royal Tournament; the bravery and efficiency of our armed forces; the Lancaster, Hurricane, Spitfire flypast; the growl of the Merlin engine; tea shops in the Cotswolds;
dry stone walls; fields filled with cows and sheep; parks and village
ponds with ducks and geese; freedom, order, manners, civility,
efficiency, decency and morality.
in all, not bad for a tiny little country which makes up less than 1%
of the world’s habitable land mass and contains less than 1% of the
world’s population. No other country in the world can claim to have so
consistently been on the right side of good and evil. No other country
in the world can claim to have built the modern world. No other country
in the world has exerted so much influence over all other countries, as
I appreciate that there are exceptions to some of the above, that
aspects of which I speak have already passed away at the insistence of
'progressive' policies, and that the English and England are not without
guilt over some aspects of their history; but today is St George’s day,
so please allow me a level of jingoism unfettered.
We, the English, built the modern world in all its inherent decency,
freedom, tolerance, morality, fairness, forgiveness and altruism; its
richness in art, music, literature, dance, finance, technology, science,
philosophy and medicine. But most importantly, to a brutal world with
an almost perpetual history of savagery, we brought freedom, paid for with the blood of our young men who made the ultimate sacrifice for its continuation.
When weighed on the scales of history, England can only be judged as a
very special country. My immediate ancestors fought for England and we
cannot allow our present day clutch of traitor class politicians to hand
over our bloodily defended freedoms and sovereignty to unelected
politicians in Europe, all seeped in the self-same socialist ideology
that has inflicted so much human misery and suffering over the last
How dare our liberal rulers disparage our English values and culture, values that allow them to live their lives in peace?
How dare they invite in and appease the political/ religious ideology of Islam?
How dare the Muslims display their base ingratitude and pathological temerity when they call upon us to bend to their barbaric ways?
How dare these followers of a 7th-century desert warrior look at our
decency and our tolerance as symptoms of English weakness to be duly
exploited at our children’s expense?
We cannot let them. England is too important to be erased from the
pages of modern history. The English are too valuable a people to allow
this to happen.
When I write of England, it may well be through rose-coloured glasses, but to me all of the above is England, it is my England, it is your England, and once again, history beckons us to defend it.
