The Labour Party in government over England from 1997 to 2010 was both racist and anti-English.
Scottish presence and interests in those governments were vastly over-represented and indulged. There was a Secretary of State for Scotland (and for Wales and for Northern Ireland) but no equivalent to represent England’s interests. There was a Scottish Affairs Committee (and for Welsh and for Northern Ireland affairs) but no equivalent for English affairs. [There is the British Labour Party and Scottish Labour Party and Welsh Labour Party, but no English Labour Party.]
Powers were devolved to Scotland (and Wales and Northern Ireland) but not in England. The Labour Government tried to inflict regional assemblies but, apart from London, was unsuccessful. England as a nation was not consulted but denied a collective say on this issue, whilst the minor nations accounting in total for merely 16% of the UK’s population were given two referendums each.
University tuition fees were inflicted on English students but not on Scottish students whether studying in Scotland or England. English students pay higher tuition fees than EU students.
Social Care costs are imposed in England but supplied free in Scotland. Prescription charges are levied in England, but prescribed medicine in Scotland is free.
No specific provision was made for in England for any one to record and have counted and published their ethnic identity as English in either the 2001 Census or the 2011 Census. In marked contrast, a separate tick box in the ‘White’ category was provided in Scotland for Scots to record THEIR ethnic identity as Scottish, and over 80% of them did in both the 2001 and 2011 Censuses.
Given that ‘race’, more precisely ‘colour’ and ‘nationality’ and ‘ethnic or national origins’ are specified in Section 9 of the Equality Act 2010 as protected characteristics, it may be reasonably concluded that not only did those Labour Governments hypocritically operate double standards, they breached their own statute law on an industrial scale in treating the English people less favourably.
In short, the Labour Party is racist and anti-English. England is best governed by the English rather than the stooges put up by the Labour Party Mr Cameron and his Coalition cronies may choose to overlook these offences, but many of us English do not!
