Ed Husain has an article in the Torygraph that shows a serious lack of self awareness about Britain.
Ed says that:
For centuries, Great Britain has guided the globe. Now, the world needs us to do so again. We must stop apologising for the past, and start advancing again as a free nation at home and abroad. The self-flagellation over Brexit and begging for European acceptance is unbecoming of this great country. Britishness is about values, ideas, history and an attitude, not skin colour. It is time to be proud of Britain again.
When I read the article my first though was Ed must be English as his vision of Britain is very much an article which conflates England with Britain in every way in my opinion. Ed was also a senior fellow for the Council on Foreign Relations a somewhat controversial American think tank or what many of us would call a propaganda machine for the state.
Ed has been travelling the globe and “What I saw was a world crying out for clarity and leadership“. You can’t make this shit up can you. Ed notes that Britain ended slavery, no mention that Britain also helped sustain the European slave trade for hundreds of years. Britain, according to Ed, also obliterated Nazism, again no mention of how sympathetic the ruling elite were to Hitler and the Nazi movement, esp the Conservative media.
These kind of articles are what feeds the lazy in this country, those who know nothing of England’s history and it breeds ignorance and prejudice in my opinion, the whole England and its empire nonsense that sadly the BritNats in Scotland also aspire to.
This is the kind of article that we will see more of this month, more British pish that is really all about England. Ed needs to remember that there are many of us who will never be British no matter what our passport says, being British as far as I’m concerned is a stain and nothing to be proud of.
If you want to find out more about the real British history then follow Crimes of Britain on twitter, a real eye opener and maybe Ed should check it out.
