The English as a nation are probably hated by more people around the world than anyone else.
As colonists we were not particularly bad, we didn’t murder millions of the indiginest peoples, like many other colonists. In fact we took into account local customs and beliefs then adjusted the laws accordingly. Perhaps that was the mistake, wipe out all opposition, not very humane, but that is just what many colonists did.
Closer to home Ireland was a continual running sore. The Welsh, you are never quite sure here, but they smile alot. Then there is Scotland! Elizabeth the first may have been a great monach, but she allowed her conscience over Mary to over-rule common sense when she foisted the Stuarts on to the English Nation. With it came resentment and hatred by the Scottish nation for England and everything English.
From the day those cursed Stuarts became our monarch problems have arisen endlessly, from the Devine Right of Kings through religious squables to insurection and rebelion. On many occaisions Highlander fought Highlander, Scot against Scot but they always had the English to blame.
Now comes a time for decision. I do not agree with David Cameron on many policy issues, however, it is time for Westminster to show it’s strength. It is the English Taxpayer who is subsidising Scotland, Ireland and Wales. If they want independence so be it. But let the vote be clear and precise, none of this we want to rule ourselves but you can pay for it. That has to stop!
Mealy mouthed politicians saying England has no right to comment, WE PAY THE BILLS!! that gives us rights. If you want independence fine by me, but YOU PAY FOR IT!!!
