ENGLISH NATIONALISM GAINING 'TRACTION'
In the last few weeks I have been pleased to see that the English Movement and Cause is gaining more and more official recognition. Of course the reporting and comment is all from opponents of English Nationalism. These opponents however now fear that if the English Nationalist dog isn’t thrown the occasional bone it may bite them in their tender parts (like the wallet!).
We have had here a call for proper English Devolution, although still mixed in with Graham Allen MP’s talk of trying to break England up.
If he thinks that breaking England up will put English Nationalism back in its box, then he need look no further than the history of conflict on the other side of St George’s Channel! (AKA the Irish Sea). Here is a link to this piece. Click here >>> http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-politics-22826860
The University of Cardiff has held a discussion on the need to do something about English Devolution if Welsh Devolution is to be protected in the long term. Here is a link to this article which is well worth a read. Click here >>>> http://www.clickonwales.org/2013/06/the-english-dog-finds-its-voice/
Last, but not least, we have Sir Merrick Cockell, the President of the Local Government Association saying that England really needs its own Secretary of State.

Only a year or so ago we would have been delighted by any one of these! What do you think?
