Something i have noticed and become slightly concerned about. And that is English nationalism and the far right. Remember the local elections?

A senior minister has claimed white working class voters are being increasingly "tempted" to support the British National Party.

Welfare minister Margaret Hodge, who is MP for Barking in east London, said on Sunday that traditional Labour voters feel her party is no longer listening to their concerns over issues such as housing and immigration.

"They can't get a home for their children, they see black and ethnic minority communities moving in and they are angry," Hodge told the Sunday Telegraph.

BNP support growing

And how can we forget that the BNP has now jumped on the English nationalist movement and the support for an English parliament. Jack Straw, back in 2000 said that English nationalism had the potential to become a voilent movement.

Cross-party politicians have warned of growing English nationalism following devolution, airing their views in a BBC programme.

Home Secretary Jack Straw says the English had used their "propensity to violence to subjugate Ireland, Wales and Scotland" on the Radio 4 programme Brits. The broadcast is examining what it now means to be British.

Mr Straw will describe the English as "potentially very aggressive, very violent" and will "increasingly articulate their Englishness following devolution."

English nationalism a threat to the UK

Many have said that the Scots and Welsh will never vote for independence, but the English have the ability to break the Union. During the World Cup and the anti-English incidents in Scotland lead to a dramatic increase in support for English Independence (35%, which is a large minority).

And some England fans during the World Cup in Germany carried UVF flags and displayed a xeniophobic behaviour to other nations. What is worrying is that this movement will become an ugly mark on this country and potentially damaging to our Union.

Yes its all going to plan, for years we have tried to intergrate and even had legislation introduced to combat racism etc. But now we have the Goverment pushing their anti Muslim agenda, and using the people to do it. It wont be long before it kicks off big time in the UK, you cannot keep blaming one section of the community and not expect reprisals from everyone else.

That's amusing, i was about to mention on another thread about how the BNP should really be called the 'ENP'. Nothing about keeping "white British racial integrity" or whatever they want to call it, more with English. If they had their way with ethnic minorities they'd probably turn their attention towards expelling Irish, Scottish & Welsh individuals from England. Seems ethnic minorities is higher on their agenda at present.

However there does seem to be a slight increase in extremism/nationalism in the UK, especially with racial/religious tensions increasing. The media or press as ever are the culpable ones. I'm surprised there hasn't been any militant actions from exteme far right groups. We all rememeber what David Copeland did with the London bombings back in 1999. Who knows, we may see a counter 'Islamic extremist' group coming to the fore, i hope not.
