English Inquisition

Can Wakefield Prison really get much worse? Not only are there just "pockets of good practice" in a sea of bad practice, but some Prison Wardens even wear their country's national symbol. Charity tie-pins with the Cross of St. George bought in support of a cancer charity have caused the Chief inspector of prisons, Anne Owers, concern as they could be "misinterpreted" as a racist symbol.

Why is English nationalism uniquely "racist"? Are Welsh prison wardens banned from wearing daffodils on St. Davids Day or displaying the Welsh dragon in prisons across the Principality?

You can't say that, the Labour Stazi are watching.

Yes. It is racist to be white and English. Anyone white and English ought to be ashamed of themselves. And that includes me. Just one moment while I go and shoot myself.
