    Not content with turning the BBC into the Boris Broadcasting Corporation they are souring my views on my country and its flag.

    Yep, dragging the union flag down with the St George’s cross.

    Sounds like the sort of person who thinks all of the Windrush generation should’ve been deported.

    Lammy is, more often than not, an utter roosterpiece. But he's bang on the money here.

    I used to think that, but over the last few years I’ve found myself agreeing with him more and more.

    I would be amazed if any white person born in this country did not have at least some foreign blood in them just a few generations back. I have quite a bit of Italian from my mothers side and though my fathers family were in London from before the first world war I was naturally horrified to find in our family tree that the is French blood on his side, I dont tell people I know about that though would not want it getting out.

    I actually agree with you because I am amazed that Labour are still behind in the polls. Apparently Boris is holding up with the blue collar worker in the north which is mental considering everything, I hated Bliar but Boris is giving him a run for his money with his Teflon like abilities. That the tories are even in the running to take Hartlepool means I may have lost touch with the mood of the public and I can only assume this culture war is the only way to keep them in power.

    They delivered Brexit, cheers for that now don't let the door hit you on the way out.

    The flip side of this, is that I my self identify as British Turkish Cypriot. English is not really part of my identity at all. British, is and proudly so, but not English... why is that?

    LBC has some horrendous callers on just for entertainment value
    She is clearly one of them
    I’d live her to meet some of my Indian or black mates and talk like that about them not being English... her teeth would be removed before her sentence was finished
    In a world where the place you are born in bears so much impact on your destiny and opportunity, havent cnuts like her trying to drag it down makes me sick TBH.

    So my local council are doing some 'lawn' maintenance outside the house as i can see. Been there around 2 hours as i went for a run this morn, and in that time, they've spent most of it not working at all. The work they've done, probably took 15 mins. A bit farcical really.

    this is the outcome of not teaching proper British history in schools. Not just about the Empire and slave trade the British were part of, but also the post-war rebuild undertaken by BRITISH CITIZENS from across Asia, Africa and Carribbean nations.
