Thats why I used the FLA thing...that was an across board political march,yes there was guys
from groups that we don't want around,but prob 90% plus were just average guys right across
the political spectrum....YET....it is referred to as a Far Right thing....heap of shit,lies,propaganda,
(fuckin hell I've become an anarchist... )
But makes a great story......Press aren't the least bit interested in a peaceful march....
But Deep down EVERYONE knows that.

It's not an extreme view in fact it's very Basic....you can be anything, have any political view,

The problem is the far right have co-opted and corrupted many of the symbolism of the English nation. At least the Nazi's had the decency to design and use their own flag.
As for definitions? There's no 'proper' definition. Nationalism covers a range of views, everything from national self interest to independence to rabid xenophobia. I'd say it's up to you to define what you mean when you say you're a nationalist, because we know most people will think the worst.
I think that 'history of tolerance' stuff is often misused. Our history, and human history in general, is one of conflict and intolerance.
Yes, most of the time there's an uneasy status quo, but it doesn't take much for it to bubble over.
doesn't mean it's the correct interpretation of it,but you know that anyway.
I did explain what my use of Nationalism was,and why I'm careful where and when I use it.
I am in step with the world....I Think...

F.in jumping on,just following who shouts the loudest,which is usually the ignorant minority.
I don't think you'll find a more tolerant Country than the UK,prop 70% of world is intolerant
but we do our best here.
