Fury as police warn Stoke campaigner England flag and Jerusalem hymn ‘may OFFEND locals’

A PATRIOTIC campaigner is furious after police warned him hanging his St George’s Cross flag and playing the hymn Jerusalem in Stoke could OFFEND people.

…When pushed for clarification by Mr Bone, he added: “Stoke-on-Trent does have quite a diverse population, okay?

“The Jerusalem thing going and the [flag saying] English Parliament etcetera, etcetera – some people might take offence to that.

“I’m not saying people will but I’m saying some people might take offence at that.”

    I wonder if any of the 18 mosques in the Stoke-on-Trent area have ever gotten a similar warning. Why does tolerance always have to be a one way street.

    • Because Multiculturalism is a one way street.

        One way, always toward Islamic Monoculturalism.

      Because it’s never tolerance when enforced or mandated by color of law, its naked oppression calling itself a new name.
      The U.K. is not a free country.

    We need ammunition.

    Any foreigner who doesn’t expect some nation-state sentiment in a place where they have chosen to live deserves to be offended.

    • Alain

      For me then the foreigner should NOT be there if that is the case.

    Do these offended people know know what country they are in, what government is paying their benefits? If they don’t like the Flag of that country or a hymn about that country I suggest they eat shit and die. Or go back to Pakistan.

    Offending people is illegal now? I suppose it depends on whom one offends. If the police had told me that I would have told them that I was offended by mosques in my town and suggest they do something about it just to see how they would respond.

    I think England is very close to thes sort of violence we are seeing in France. The civil authorities know it and are trying desperately to keep it under control, but things like this will only make it worse. It’s just a matter of time before the whole diversity is strength thing leads to the sort of sectarian violence we see in every other strong diverse place on the planet. Yugoslavia, Rwanda, and India/Pakistan/Bangladesh/Sri Lanka immediately spring to mind.

    Our Muslim population is – how to put this delicately? – somewhat feeble minded and high strung. Seeing the flag of the nation of which they are citizens might cause some confusion for them, resulting in unintended … consequences. So be gentle with them.

      “feeble minded and high strung”

      Oddly, the Muslims in Canada are exactly the same!

  • Alain

    Never mind about that, since here in Canada the government is about pass a bill to ensure that our invaders are not offended.

    • Dana Garcia

      Offending invaders is a good thing, the least a patriot can do.

  • Tooth&Claw

    You’re more offensive to me if you marinate in aftershave. That said, I can always move upwind. So can those that might take offense to this.

    Maybe English and the rest of the British need to start being proud of their long history, and remember their ancestors have lived on that Isle since the end of the last Ice Age.
