God Save England

Some great disaster has happened, not sure what or when but it happened and it swollowed England and Wales.

I have just been to an interview with the Government and I had to fill in a questionaire. When asked what nationality I was, I looked at the list and everything nationality was there accept English and Welsh. So I said none of the above, I was told I cannot do that and that I am British.

When asked why, I was informed that our government does not recongnise English as an nationality and you are British. So when did it happen, when was England invaded by the British.

Does this mean that we can now scrap that football team called England.

I have just search Google Earth for England and there it was England, just under Great Britain. and when you search it takes you the town of Bedford just to let u know.

So I feel so lost, someone nicked my country, can I have it back.

Paul

p.s. I did not get the job.

Now that Wales and Scotland have their own "Parliaments" the Scots running the rest of us are worried that if we can be "English" we may demand our own parliament and chuck them out - so of course we have to be British

(You clearly didn't get the job because you are a "Racist Englishman"! Smile

Me - I always write English on their forms after ticking British - I've not been sent to prison yet.

We English will triumph in the end............ after we've been crapped on long enough, and then a bit more!
Mind you, I was always happy with British until recently. ;D

Do the concepts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland exist any more as nations? I thought with the union of the crowns we had become one nation, with those other aspects as regions.

Yeah, asking how far back in the great sweep of migration they want to go when they ask for one's racial origin always unsettles them, too. 8-] chuckle

No doubt about it - it's usually a talking point with the postman. I even felt sick when they beat Ireland on Sunday - perhaps it's time to move! LOL

Someone reincarnate Enoch? No need. He's alive and well in the spirit of the BNP.

Just a thought - I wonder how far back Graysta wants to go in discovering what he means by England ..
8-] I doubt we'll get an answer goes back further than the Raj ... 8-]
