Proud to be British?

A lot of the kids involved are from third-generation unemployed families and some of them have been asking their youth workers why Polish people need to come here, why they can’t stay in their own country. - Spokesman for Moray Council, planning to send teenage troublemakers to Poland to learn about tolerance.

There is so much irony this post it's too much not to comment...

Perhaps we can start a Pole/Chav exchange program?

I just loved the phrase "some of them have been asking their youth workers"...

Would Poland want Britain's chavs!?!

Re: Pole/Chav exchange program.

One way please. I know some very nice Poles, but "I've Never Met A Nice Chav"...

It's rather difficult to be proud of Britain, when we know that right around the corner is Scottish Independance and the horrid mess that this will inevitably leave the rest of the United Kingdom in.
I also find it strange when people say that tolerance and fairness are British values, it is only in the latter part of the 20th century when these values began to be implemented in the country with the Equal Rights laws and Human Rights legislation, etc. Before this, you had the British Empire and THAT had absolutely nothing to do with tolerance and fairness did it? The British Empire was a ruthless expansion of lands, colonies and territories at all costs, even that of human lives.

Tolerance and fairness are not exclusive to Britain, I would say that, if anything, those are European values rather than solely British ones. If I am perfectly honest, I think I would rather live in another country as a citizen rather than being British. America and Canada are appealing options, perhaps the Republic of Ireland. All I know is that Britain lost it's greatness many years ago, and probably has no hope of regaining it now that chav culture dominates in Britain.

How could anyone be proud to be British? What exactly are we meant to be proud of? The rest of Europe hates us, our government is the political pawn of the US government, our young people are some of the most ill-educated, violent and drunken, our immigration system is an open-door policy which is rapidly transforming the UK into a crime-ridden, third world dump, and the National Health Service as well as the Education Department is in absolute tatters.

What a bloody shambles! What a shameful mess this country has degenerated into. Time was when being British used to incur a certain amount of respect from others, now we are a laughing stock and we only have ourselves to blame for this.

God bless America. God help Britain, we certainly need him right now...........................
