Being English is bad for you!

Gisela Stuart, the German born Labour MP for Birmingham-Edgbaston says that the rise of Englishness is a threat to democracy. She is worried by the number of her constituents who now claim to be English rather than British. "It has only been in the last five years or so that I have heard people in my constituency telling me 'I'm not British - I am English'. That worries me".

This is the headline in today's Birmingham Mail!

Well, I'm English, can't do anything about it, like being so, but don't try to be superior about it, although I am proud of England and English achievements.

Gisela is from Bavaria. I know a few proud Bavarians. She's talking rubbish here and should not scaremonger where there are no scares!!



Being English means paying taxes with no representation.

Seeing as the Welsh, Scottish and North Ireland have parliaments, how about English?
