Jeremy Corbyns Labour Party is ashamed to say England for fear of appealing to racists, a damning party report says.
The English Labour Network set up by Labour moderate MPs ordered a study to look at how to champion patriotism. But the group, which was founded last year, found that Labour is too scared to mention England, or celebrate St. Georges Day which is today.
The report warns: Labours biggest single problem is we often dont mention England even when talking about England. It adds: Some activists are uncertain about celebrating St. Georges Day or reflecting English identity in campaigning. There may be misplaced fears this will appeal to or strengthen far-right extremists. Others worry about crossing a line between caring about our country and appealing to a xenophobic nationalism.
The report, which has been seen by The Sun, said that most people feel more intensely English than British.
But Labour is failing to appeal to this sense of national pride because it is too worried about being seen as pandering to the far right.

But Corbyn has no problem appealing to Palestinian racists or other types of racists.
Oh, BS. The communist scum in the Labour Party simply don’t want to acknowledge anything patriotic, period. “Appealing to racists my a**”.
Winston Churchill would have had the man horsewhipped in the public road for such cowardice.
On a single day on the Somme,in 1916, 20,000 Britons perished. On another day,March 21, 1918 nearly 10,000 UK soldiers died as the British 4th and the undermanned 5th Army struggled to contain the biggest single infantry attack of WW1. A century later one of the two great political parties can’t utter their country’s name. What will another century bring?
Exactly. “Not wanting to appeal to racists” is the same excuse they reel out for not wanting to accept and deal with any one of a hundred failures of their policies. Whether that be the wave of knife crime by blacks in the country’s capital, the endemic rape of girls by muslim males, the housing shortage etc etc
The way England is going - such as jailing people because they try to fight off attackers, I’d be ashamed to say “England” too.
WPM-white people matter
All races matter. A person has white skin because of nature. Liberals are not smarter than nature.
The UK is dead - we're watching it on its final days.
This isn’t about “whiteness” of skin. The main bromide against the EU was the large numbers of white Poles, Romanians, lithuanians etc. coming in.
>>A century later one of the two great political parties cant utter their countrys name. What will another century bring?
Minarets and a subjugated populace asking “how did this happen?”
Remember what happened at the State of the Union when the USA chants started?
Everything had been different then. Even the names of countries, and their shapes on the map, had been different. Airstrip One, for instance, had not been so called in those days: it had been called England or Britain, though London, he felt fairly certain, had always been called London.
Well, if the UK divides, there’s nobody to stand against the EU over there. The so-called Scottish “nationalists” are socialists and want to be part of the EU.
The Kinks called it years ago, “There’s no England now.”
The Brits are twits.
The UK will divide. If the scots want to go to the EU, let them. Even amongst the English, about 49% want to stay in the EU, so its not that clear cut
You think the EU ought to continue existing?
The EC kept Franco-German rivalry down to the economic side and avoided war amongst competing powers for nearly 60 years. That IS an achievement
The fact that Poland and Germany and also Romany and hungary can work together is a major achievement
The Euro seems like a mistake yet it also opened up internal trade heavily.
There are lots of places where the EU is wrong, but throwing out the baby with the bathwater is the wrong move
