As I understand it your ancestors could have come from anywhere, in case you didn't know our country has been invaded on numerous occasions, we had Romans who came and gave us civilization, later on we had a French king, and even the Germans(Jutes) have invaded us, it was down to a large group of immigrants that the British identity was even created.

Although a lot of knowledge was gained from the British Empire, you can't defend capturing countries and bending them to your will, for example WW2,
also it was founded upon slavery so anyone who says it was better back then is an imbecile.

BRING BACK SLAVERY! BRING BACK THE EMPIRE! KICK OUT ANYONE WHO ISN'T WHITE, BECAUSE IF YOU'RE NOT WHITE THEN YOU'RE NOT BRITISH.

Confess? You make it sound like a crime.

Anyway, I'm completely unpatriotic, this country is in all honesty rubbish, but then again every country is rubbish, thanks to politics.
Long time no see.

HOORAH.

COME ON!!!

I ALWAYS KNEW THIS DAY WOULD COME, TIME FOR THE UPRISING OF THE WHITES!

POLISH!? THEY DON'T COUNT AS WHITE PEOPLE, THEY ARE JUST ARE DIRTY AS THE BLACKS AND MUSLIMS!!!

Seriously though... I don't see why we can't be a multi-cultural country, as long as it doesn't cause some kind of Civil War, or general anarchy...
Or y'know some kinda religious... Thing...

Basically, as long as all of those who come into Britain respect us and respect peace then there's no reason to get annoyed... I mean, that's like a person comes into a room...

"Hey guys, how's everyone?"
"GET THE ******* OUT."

You wouldn't do that on a small scale, so why do it on a big scale?

Of course if someone comes in all like...

"What the ******* are you guys looking at?"
"GET THE ******* OUT."

Now that's fine, that's okay. Just treat your neighbours as they treat you...
Oh is it.

They do say the opposite of pride is shame...

Personally, I am very patriotic. Near to the point where I salute every Union Flag I spot. For my age, patriotism is usually limited to England in the World Cup, if that even. But my pride is far more sophisticated than a mere sport.


That really doesn't sound too healthy (in my opinion)... naming yourself 'UKLOVER' and then making a thread on patriotism. Just wondering, why do you think you're so patriotic? Did someone feed any of this to you as a young child?

I'm not saying patriotism is bad or good, I'm just wondering. Of course, patriotism isn't racism (though it often crosses into it), but I know of some people that were brainwashed into believing a certain race is bad. Again, I'm not saying you were brainwashed, I'm just wondering where you got your views from (was it a parent, a brother, a history book, a teacher, the internet?)

there is a fine line between patriotism and nationalism.

You're right, I've been reading too much Orwell, and now use the term synonymously with 'say'.

Strangely not. No-one (other than me) in my house is patriotic.

It just shows that anyone, of any shape or size, can be patriotic.
