Many visitors to this blog will be aware that ‘English’ is deliberately excluded as a particular category from ethnic monitoring. This is part of an undeclared policy of gradually destroying England as a national entity and with her the English as a particular ethnic group. Amazingly, it is a policy executed in plain sight! In many other contexts this would be regarded as a form of ethnic cleansing.
This policy started to be implemented in earnest with the 2001 Census of England and Wales and is shown in sharp relief by comparison with the 2001 Census of Scotland where another standard is in operation. The policy is continued with the 2011 Censuses. A particular irony is the inclusion of ‘Polish’ in the 2011 Census of Scotland whilst ‘English’ continues to be excluded.
HERE ARE SPECIMEN IMAGES OF THE RELEVANT PAGES OF THE 2011 CENSUS QUESTIONNAIRES FOR ENGLAND & SCOTLAND:
Invariably, ethnic monitoring forms used by schools, hospitals, GP surgeries, local councils etc etc in England start with “White British” and these forms are based on the categories devised for censuses. In Scotland, the first category is “White Scottish” and the second “Other White British”. The “White Other” box may be ticked and “English” recorded, but such entries will merely be aggregated with the other “White British” forms.
This policy was introduced by the British Government dominated by Scots and in which the so called ‘great offices of state’ were occupied by Scots: Tony Blair (Prime Minister), Derry Irvine (Lord Chancellor), Gordon Brown (Chancellor of the Exchequer), Robin Cook (Foreign Secretary), George Robertson (Defence Secretary), Alistair Darling (Chief Secretary), Donald Dewar (Scottish Secretary), Ann Taylor (Leader of the Commons), Gavin Strang (Transport Secretary) plus other Scots in non-cabinet posts.
More recently, the policy is evidenced by references to ‘Britain’ and ‘British’ in the context of exchanges about the future of England and the English in the aftermath of the current referendum about Scotland’s future from which the English (and Welsh) are excluded; there is a wilful refusal to use the words ‘England’ and ‘English’ with ‘rest of the UK’ being preferred.
Not only Labour politicians operate or support this anti-English policy, but also the Conservatives, Lib Dems, Greens and UKIP. Only the English Democrats put first the interests of England and her people as a distinct nation.
