The English: A people under psychological attack?

in Anglophobia / Marxism by

The globalists are driving an Anglophobic narrative, to make people ashamed of English culture, so that they can ensure open borders and world dominance. A survey commissioned by the BBC has found that only 57% of the English are proud to be English, with the young generation especially likely to feel no pride in their nationality.

This is the clear result of brainwashing through universities and the BBC where anti-nationalist propaganda is promulgated. YouGov surveyed 20,081 people and found 72% of over-65s are proud to be English, an already surprisingly low number, but comparing favourably with just 45% of 18-24s.

Results also differed by region. For example, in London boroughs such as Hackney and Lambeth, pride in being English is felt by only 37% and 38% of people, respectively. This is hardly surprising, considering that half of Londoners were not even born in these beautiful isles.

Something is seriously wrong in any country where a majority of the population are not proud to be who they are. In the case of areas such as the aforementioned London boroughs, some of this is likely due to high immigration levels in the past two decades, with many residents perhaps not self-identifying as English.

For everywhere else, this seems to be the result of a diet of anti-white, anti-British (especially anti-English) cultural Marxism at schools and at the BBC. If the survey had shown that only 57% of blacks were proud to be black, there would be an outcry, with questions around what causes them to feel that way – their portrayal in the media or what they are taught at school, for example. We proud Englishmen and women should be asking these same questions, loudly!

We should be proud of our culture! We are the cradle of civilisation. It is we who went to far flung corners of the world, where people couldn’t read and write, and we built them schools. We built roads where people didn’t know what the wheel is. We took medicine to places that didn’t even have clothes. Our tiny island has a global footprint. People across the world speak our language! We stood alone against the German war machine to defend freedom, before eventually defeating them with the support of our former colonies. We are the greatest people that mankind has ever known!

Pound reaches $1.40 for first time since Brexit vote

in Brexit by

When we voted to leave the EU, the value of the pound fell overnight. This happened for various reasons, none of which can be used as evidence that Brexit is ‘bad’.

Polling consistently showed Remain would win and so investors bought up sterling in the knowledge it would rise in value after such a vote, as the markets adore the status quo. Once it was clear we were voting to leave, investors rushed to sell their pounds before it lost value, leading to a surge in supply of sterling and – due to the laws of supply and demand – a large fall in its value.

In addition to that, the UK government cut interest rates, which weakens the currency, and who knows, perhaps some investors had been scared off by the absurd warnings of pending recessions and mass unemployment.

However, the fall in value of the pound was quickly seized upon by the Remain camp and its cheerleaders in the mainstream media, who widely blamed ‘Brexit’, which has STILL yet to happen.

Those who had previously taken no interest in currency markets became overnight experts, blaming Brexit for ‘making them poorer’ (it doesn’t work like that) when in reality the pound had long been too strong, and the decline in value had made our country more competitive; demand for our exports and tourism (both heavily affected by currency movements) soared whilst the overall economy motored along with record levels of employment, multi-decade low unemployment and soaring inward investment.

The Chinese and Germans know this. Beijing has long worked to artificially weaken its yuan in order to boost exports, while the Germans created the euro for the same reasons, so it could sell its products to poorer European nations.

The Dutch also know this, there is a phenomena named after their country – Dutch disease – which is used to describe the pain inflicted on a nation when its currency becomes too strong causing exports to dry up and a widespread lack of competitiveness in the global markets.

Today, the pound reached $1.40, its highest since the Brexit vote, and similar to levels seen in the months ahead the vote. Meanwhile, unemployment is at a 42-year low, economic growth for 4Q was raised to a healthy annualised rate of 2.0% and inflation is merely a few percentage points away from the official 2pc target. This contradicts with the government and IMF warnings of recession and mass unemployment if we voted to leave. Perhaps now we can ask all Remainers to finally put to rest the last remaining elements of Project Fear.
