Looks like the monomaniacs from the Campaign for an English Parliament have decided to have a go at Bob Russell for reasons that, as usual for them, don’t seem to make sense to people outside the English nationalist bubble. Yes, they’re still wedded to the idea that any attempt to devolve power to something that’s not an English Parliament is wrong, and recognising that Cumbria, Kent, Cornwall and Lincolnshire might have different priorities is somehow anti-English. Of course, a Parliament that represents 60m people with almost 90% of its members representing England is unrepresentative, yet somehow one representing 50m people will magically solve all the problems of England by the second verse of Jerusalem/Land Of Hope and Glory.
Have to say that I’d never heard of the Workers of England union before today – and judging from their website, it would appear that all the workers of England are white – but I amused by their ’causes’ page asserting that ‘The WEU believes that the people of England should, just like virtually every other country throughout the world celebrate our own patron saint’. Given that I could easily name dozens of countries – many of which are supposedly Christian ones as well – that don’t celebrate their patron saint’s day (who is the patron saint of the USA, for instance?), it doesn’t make me feel that much else on their site should be trusted as fact.
(And for anyone thinking of posting a comment, see if you can do it without using phrases like ‘anti-English’ ‘self-hating Englishman’ or ‘ZaNu Liebore’.)
