Anger as council officials say UK city is ‘too multicultural’ to celebrate St George’s Day


Bristol City Council allowed the national day to pass without a single event for the patron saint, despite its history dating back to 1222.

Council chiefs said 91 different languages are spoken in the town and it would be “very difficult to commemorate them all”.

Some in the area feel as though the English symbol has been hijacked by far right groups and are concerned about being branded “racist”.

According to the Daily Star Sunday, Kalphna Woolf, founder of 91 Ways to Build a Global City, which aims to unite Bristol’s multicultural communities, said people can be frightened of the white and red St George’s flag.

She said: “There was a point in the past when I’d see the St George’s Day flag flying and it would frighten me, as it had been taken over by ‘we are England’ type groups.

      Free??? Don’t make me laugh. They have been regulated up the arsehole for so long now, they wouldn’t know freedom if they tripped over it. Kind of like what kanuckistan is turning into. Herds of sheeple running around aimlessly.

    Those city officials should be physically dragged to a public square and flogged after which removed from any office.

    As I’ve said before – The U.K is buggered. I’m glad I left all those years ago.
    I am watching their demise unfold day by day, with the detached amusement of someone watching a hockey fight. But can we at least watch and learn?

      My mother was born in England.
      I’ve always been an Anglophile.
      But, the England of 1979 or 1984 is gone.

  • If the example of Saint George is not good for a “multicultural” society, then “multicultural” emblems and personages are rot, too.

    Don’t immigrants understand that their chosen new country has a pre-existing culture and history?

    Too many hopelessly violent monoculturalists allowed inside who roam freely with one thing on their mind.

    Since the authorities won’t celebrate, I will.
