Goodbye to my England, So long my old friend

Your days are numbered, being brought to an end

To be Scottish, Irish or Welsh that's fine

But don't say you're English, that's way out of line.

 

The French and the Germans may call themselves such

So may Norwegians, the Swedes and the Dutch

You can say you are Russian or maybe a Dane

But don't say you're English ever again.

 

At Broadcasting House the word is taboo

In Brussels it's scrapped, in Parliament too

Even schools are affected, staff do as they're told

They must not teach children about England of old.

 

Writers like Shakespeare, Milton and Shaw

The pupils don't learn about them anymore

How about Agincourt, Hastings , Arnhem or Mons ?

When England lost hosts of her very brave sons.

 

We are not Europeans, how can we be?

Europe is miles away over the sea

We're the English from England , let's all be proud

Stand up and be counted - Shout it out loud !

 

Let's tell our Government and Brussels too

We're proud of our heritage and the Red, White and Blue

Fly the flag of Saint George or the Union Jack

Let the world know - WE WANT OUR ENGLAND BACK !!!!

Since when did patriotism become nationalism? And this coming from someone with the flag of a communist dictatorship in their avatar :loopy:

You forgot the last verse

 

We're proud of our navy, with its cruisers and frigates

We loathe other nations, we're proud to be bigots

So if you hate the muslims, the krauts or the blacks

Fly the flag of Saint George or the Union Jack! :rolleyes:

Very thought provoking and somewhat moving. Ignore the posters who will undoubtedly come along and try to trash their own heritage, or accuse you of being racist/fascist.

Don't see the link myself.

 

The verse is a nationalist rant and what's more, the more you read it, the more it's revealed as total bullcrap. Some sort of UKIP drinking song, perhaps?

if they do,then it will just show their ignorance,the lyrics were from a song that helped bind us together during the war against fascism a war that meant freedom and democracy for many millions of people

 

 

during that war we,the blacks,the brown,the whites all pulled together and worked as one people,that pulling together ensured we won, and became a lesson to be learned

 

anyone trying to twist it in regards to racism or fascism will be hard put to prove it

So what is English heritage?

 

Can't quite put our fingers on it, can we?

 

That's because the idea of a nation is a wholly abstract and man-made construct. It is a pointless division of the inherent unity of the people of the earth.

 

You were born here as a consequence of circumstance. You deserve no more, or no less, than someone born in Botswana.

 

If anything, the British Empire, which still exists through anglo-US establishments, is a "heritage" to be ashamed of, unless you support benefitting from the imperialistic plunder of weaker nations, like parasites do from their hosts. Everything shall flow to the City of London and the Crown so England's subjects can prosper from the booty of the host colonies.

 

England is but a piece of land with people living on it, ruled by propertied and moneyed oligarchs. Governments and institutions may seek to draw boundaries and manufacture culture, but at the end of the day we ALL share this planet and the fruits of the earth.

 

Bye England... whoever you are.
