Why isn’t the British Press reporting the responses by groups campaigning for fair English representation, or allowing Alex Salmond’s repeated calls for the regionalisation or break-up of England to be challenged? Are they scared of the SNP’s Scottish Nationalists? Are they in awe of Alex Salmond? Or are the British Press’s Editors blocking the publication of responses by the English to Scottish interference in their internal affairs?
The question needs to be examined, why is the voice of England being ignored? More coverage has been and continues to be given to groups in Syria, Libya, Egypt or the Ukraine than to our own domestic problems. We are facing monumental political upheaval on a par with those countries, as fundamental changes to the relationship between the UK nations (possibly including the break-up of the UK) could occur in less than 2 months.
Yet the British Press seem reluctant to allow the English to challenge Alex Salmond’s words. We, the English, have to remain silent in the run-up to the Scottish referendum. Is it ‘acceptable’ for the British Press to report and interview people from other countries while they stand up for their own democratic rights, whilst ignoring the organisations standing up for the democratic rights of the people of England? Surely our voice must be just as important as theirs!
The press release sent out on 18th July 2014 by the Campaign for an English Parliament, highlights concerns about Scotland’s leading politician, the First Minister of Scotland, Alex Salmond, coming to England. During his visit he showed complete ignorance of the democratic rights of another nation by discussing how it should be ‘broken up’. The Campaign for an English Parliament stands up for English democratic rights and has demanded an apology from the Scottish First Minister for his lack of respect. This should have been reported – the fact that the British Press remains silent is of great concern to us all.
