Are you English and ashamed of it? You should not be. I say this as an Englishman and proud of it. Do you even know whether you are English? Or do you call yourself British? If you were born in England and your parents or grandparents were born in England before the Second World War then the answer is pretty much bound to be; Yes you are English! England's contributions to Science, Engineering, law and civilization make it one of the great countries. Here is something of what has been said about us.
George Orwell said:-
England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality. In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse racing to suet puddings. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during God save the King than of stealing from a poor box. All through the critical years many left-wingers were chipping away at English morale, trying to spread an outlook that was sometimes squashily pacifist, sometimes violently pro-Russian, but always anti-British.
PS George knew plenty of the quasi-intellectuals in socialist circles.
Theodore Dalrymple ex Wiki
Anthony (A.M.) Daniels (1949-) is an English writer and retired physician (prison doctor and psychiatrist), who frequently uses the pen name Theodore Dalrymple. He has written extensively on culture, art, politics, education and medicine both in Britain and overseas, and is probably best-known for his opposition to progressive and liberal policies in these fields. Now retired from medicine, he worked as a doctor and psychiatrist in Zimbabwe and Tanzania, and more recently at a prison and a public hospital in Birmingham, in central England. He has travelled in many countries in Africa, South America, Eastern Europe, and elsewhere.
Daniels has revealed in his writing that his father was a Communist activist, while his mother was born in Germany and came to the United Kingdom as a refugee from the Nazi regime. In his commentary, Daniels frequently argues that the progressive views prevalent within Western intellectual circles tend to minimize the responsibility of individuals for their own actions and to undermine traditional values, thus contributing to the formation within rich countries of a vast underclass afflicted by endemic violence, criminality, sexual promiscuity, and drug abuse. Occasionally accused of being a misanthrope, Daniels denies the charge and his defenders point to a persistently conservative philosophy in his work that is anti-ideological, sceptical, rational and empiricist....... columns frequently appear in The Spectator, as well as in City Journal.
The Wikipedia tells it like it is - sometimes. It was set up with a Zionist agenda although it wants to be thought honest. It gives Dalrymple a track record which absolutely typical for a Jew. Using pseudonyms especially those using Christian names only is characteristic. Doing a runner from Germany is another. Dalrymple's writing in The Spectator was designed to make Englishmen ashamed of England and the lower classes, unless they happened to be blacks or Indians. The Spectator was owned by a Zionist thief, one Conrad Black who got away with a mere six years for stealing millions.

He won at Isandlwana and lost at Rorke's Drift. English Heritage and The Independent wants to tell us about our defeats rather than our successes. Blacks of the race relations industry are jumping on the band wagon too.
