What about our rights?

Sirs: Not my words, unfortunately. I have added a few, but I would have loved for them to have all been mine.

Will we still be the country of choice, and still be our Great Britain, if we continue to make changes forced on us by people from far and wide who came to live in Britain because it was their country of choice? Think about it…

What I have to say is this: When will they do something about MY rights? I celebrate Christmas, but now because it isn’t celebrated by everyone we can no longer say Merry Christmas. Now it has to be Season’s Greetings. It’s no longer Christmas holiday, it’s Winter Break. Isn’t it amazing how this winter break always occurs over the Christian holiday? We’ve gone so far the other way, and we have bent over backwards to not offend anyone, that I am now being offended. But it seems no one has a problem with that….

This says it all: IMMIGRANTS, NOT BRITS MUST ADAPT. I am sick and tired of this PC government worrying about whether we are offending some individual or culture by us celebrating our own festivals. After the disgust about the attacks of 7/7 had just settled down, the politically-correct crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others.

I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Britain. Our population is, after all, almost entirely made up of the descendants of immigrants: Danes, Romans, French, Dutch, Irish, etc. However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country — and apparently some born here — need to understand. This idea of the Brits being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Britons we have our own culture, our own society, our own languages, and our own lifestyle. This culture has developed over centuries of struggle, trials, and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom and many who died for it.

We speak ENGLISH, not Indian, Urdu, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!

We are Christian by Constitution; we are not Buddhist, Shinto, Jewish, Janists, Sikh. We have a multitude of faiths in our land. They are welcome to practice their chosen religion in this country, and we don’t mind. Most do not try to foist their beliefs on us, or try to take over a Christian country. For hundreds of years we have (with a few nasty exceptions) lived in a multi-religious society. “Land of Hope and Glory” is our motto. This is not some Christian, right-wing, political slogan. We use this motto because Christian men and women, of Christian principles, founded this nation. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.

If the ‘Union’ flag offends you, or you don’t like our Queen, then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don’t care how you did things where you came from. This is OUR country, our land, and our lifestyle. Our laws give every citizen the right to express his opinion, and we will allow you every opportunity to do so! But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about our flag, our lifestyle our government, or our way of life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great BRITISH freedom: THE RIGHT TO LEAVE!

It is time for Great Britain to speak up. If you agree — pass this along. I think if we all keep passing this to our friends (and enemies) it will also, sooner or later get back to the complainers. Let’s all try,please?

Well I have bought some really British Christian Christmas cards for this "winter holiday".
I think I might send one to the local council.
I might even send one to dear old Gordon.
