The last refuge of the scoundrel

Now there are times when wrapping yourself in the flag is a sign of genuine patriotism, though it should really be left to sports fans or ordinary people. When members of the political classes start to do so or promote 'British' or 'UK' values then you you know that they're getting desperate about something or trying to hide something.
DAVID Cameron has demanded a British uprising to promote democratic values and stop extremism which has been allowed to "flourish" on our soil.
The Prime Minister has spelt out a call to be more British, backing Education Secretary Michael Gove's plans to promote British values in the classroom, with proposals to also add the Magna Carta to the curriculum.
Mr Cameron has called Brits to be more "muscular" in flying the flag for democracy, freedom of speech, tolerance and equality saying these values are "as British as the Union Flag, football and fish and chips."
His rigid stance appears to be a direct response to the 'Trojan Horse' scandal which revealed Islamist extremism in schools in Birmingham.
He said: "It isn't enough simply to respect these values in schools. They're not options, they're the core of what it is to live in Britain.
"In recent years we have been in danger of sending out a worrying message: that if you don't want to believe in democracy, that's fine; that if equality isn't your bag, don't worry about it; that if you're completely intolerant of others, we will still tolerate you. That's not just led to division, it has also allowed extremism - of both the violent and non-violent kind - to flourish. We need to be far more muscular in promoting British values and the institutions that uphold them."
As ever, a politician is running roughly ten years behind the rest of us.
The thing is though the majority indigenous groups no longer recognise themselves as British, they tend now to think of themselves as English, Scots, Welsh and most unfortunate of all and where the real problem stems from, muslim. Indeed the only groups with a tendency to think of themselves as British are the Northern Irish and any number of immigrant groups who tag 'British' before or after their country of origin, even if they've been born here.
Cameron seems to be following in the footsteps of the former PM Gordon 'Jonah' Brown who had a thing about British values whilst doing his level best to remove the English as a political force by mass uncontrolled immigration.
In essence things are getting worse as the politicians are struggling to cope with immigrant groups who are used to the idea because its been promoted within them by leftards and libtards that they can tell anyone who criticises them to get lost, whilst calling the indigents racist to boot. Naturally they fall back on the flag and try to rally support, a support which isn't really there anymore... not for politicians anyway.
Still, you know things are really getting bad when the Prime Minister does this, so I wonder what he knows that we don't?

Who's this 'we', that Cameron is talking about ?

it was 'them', that has, and wishes to allow more (Albania, Turkey & Ukraine) to come here. Not to mention all the bloody Roma that are now plaguing our towns and cities.

I think he, and a few others (Labour) have just realised that they have been screwing the wrong people. ie the indigenous population and, are just trying to go all patriotic to garner votes. Too late mate !

I am English. Not British ! Anyone now can be called British. It means bugger all.

Boy oh boy is Camoron away with the faeries or is he just delusional.
For many a long year now if any indigenous English man or woman decided to fly either the St Georges cross or the Union Jack flag from their own property they were swiftly told to take it down as it may appear racist to immigrants and could upset someone. Now after years of brow beating and being told if you are white and English keep it down the idiot camoron wants to "Promote" British values ridiculous for a generation now we have had the "Englishness" beaten out of us , we have been humiliated and silenced and told we are bad bad racist people and now this twat wants to promote "British values".
Does he not get the irony of what he is saying. Thanks to him and his ilk there is no such thing as a British value, and it really makes no odds how hard he tries to rally the disaffected and downright angry with his bullshit because when he loses the next election and he will, that idiot millipede (who is more delusional and more dangerous than Camoron) will with his leftard mob start turning everything back over to the left the liberalists and the Muslims anyway. Give me strength they are all prats.

Well he must be aware he said this in 2007.

' I found myself thinking that it is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the British Asian way of life, not the other way around.'
It's not Islam that is the problem
can you really believe anything he says.

Controlling through infiltration is a long held method of subversive organisations. They don't use guns or force, just gradual movement to bring about the changes they want. It may take some time but they are usually very patient. We have had infiltration into our security services in the past and more recently the education, union and political systems, especially the latter. Now look at the terms of reference of the Frankfurt School of Thought and realise just how many have come about in the past 40 years. Yet we keep voting these people into power!
