Let the British die out at the hands of the immigrants.

If more people feel English instead of Briish, isn't time then to disband the Union, leave Northern Ireland and let Scotland go its own way too? People seem to indicate that the bonds between the 4 nations is fading away.

If Britishness is in decline, so must be the United Kingdom upon which the identity was created.

To me, you can't have it both ways.

We can blame the immigrants all we want. But Englishness died out when English kids no longer wanted to learn English history.

It amazes me how ignorant our youth are about English History. Ask a kids who our last 3 monarchs were and you get a blank stare. Ask them who the last 3 winners of xfactor were and you'll get an enthusiastic response.

It seems our kids are more aware of US elections than our own. They could name Barack and Mitt but probably couldn't tell you who the leader of the opposition in the UK is.

And its not going to get better. While immigrants children will make full use of the free high standard of education in Britain, English kids will belittle educational achievements and brand anyone who studies a boff or nerd.

This pattern of anti-education needs to be squashed. There is a reason our nation has has to look elsewhere to fill gaps that simply can't be filled here.

White English med students go into private healthcare establishments which mean we have to fill the gap with foreign doctors.

And as for meial labour. When was the last time you were service your starbuck coffee or pret croissant by an English person?....... never.

English people either see it as beneath them or not worth the hassle if you gets benefits anyway.

No wonder the demand for foreign labour is so high.

If you think the white English people are going to let themselves be ''yesterdays ppl'' you are very much mistaken.

As much as I disagree with certain English people on here, I still would never wish for them to be ''yesterdays ppl''....

Racist nonsense....

No they aren't

Its more important than ever that Englishness is celebrated and embraced.

Otherwise mistrust and suspicion will override tolerance and accaptance.

And then its only a stones throw away from a Nazi style coup. It only took a few years (4yrs I think) for the Nazi's to take over Germany and establish themselves as the only party working for the people. They lablled everyone else a Bolshevik, Jew or liberal communist and then it was a matter of a few years before concentration camps were created.

F*ck mine.... Gobshite! where do you live? Craggy Island?

When have you ever seen me running the English down? You must have me confused with someone else.

I am a proud Brit, I just wish others were equally proud and grateful for what being a British citizen means and provides.

That includes native White Britons and immigrants.
