Reader’s Comment of the Day: I love the Britain we have lost


In response to Chris McGovern: We no longer teach our children our island story. No wonder they do not love their country, Earthenware wrote:

You’re right about the influence of leftist teachers on the young, but I think there’s another aspect to consider.

I’m patriotic – for the country that existed fifty years ago. When I look at the country now, I conclude that there is very little to be patriotic about. The people around me are no longer my people. They are mostly from other nations.

A nation is not merely a few lines on a map (as Mr Cameron seems to think). It is its people. The British people are being slowly replaced by outsiders with a higher birth rate and they don’t seem to mind. Even in 2015 (by which time it was clear that the modern Tories were more pro-immigration than Labour) the vast majority of people voted for continued mass immigration.

We live in a parliamentary democracy and the people have voted for this. I have to accept it. But I can’t feel patriotic for a people who vote for the end of their nation and I suspect that I’m not the only one.

I feel proud of what Britain was, but not of what it has become.
