The article linked below appeared in The New Zealand Herald Online recently and if you are English, it will give you an insight as to why, in a supposed non-racist 21st century world, Anglophobia is so widespread.
The author, Damien Venuto ( a NZ Herald Business Reporter) claims to speak for all football fans around the world and uses the football World Cup as a vehicle to peddle an anti-English commentary that is bigoted, outdated, historically inaccurate and destructively offensive to English people…

Having just watched a YouTube video of an Andrew Neill interview on the BBC I have come to the conclusion that I dislike what the man represents, intensely.
I find his air of intellectual superiority, his smug self-righteousness and his ego insufferable.
Mostly I dislike his controlled aggression and that poorly-disguised, left-wing bias that the BBC prefers in its presenters.
I suspect that the BBC has had a policy of not employing any presenter 'of the Right' or even slightly left of Centre, much the…Read more
Anyone who has visited these pages know that although I choose to live in exile in New Zealand, my ethnicity and self-identity is thoroughly English and members of my family still live in England. This gives me the right to be enraged at this time and to demand answers to the following questions:-
1. Why did the British Police, Local Authorities and the Child Welfare system desert our young vulnerable English children as long ago as 2003? That is 15 years ago!
2. How and why were these English Authorities…
Several British private and academic institutions continue to hoard many thousands of folk songs, tunes and dances that rightly belong to the ethnic English people.
These cultural treasures were plundered by British Victorian collectors and hidden away more than a century ago, ostensibly to preserve them for posterity i.e. to prevent them being lost to future generations of the very same English people. However, more than a hundred years later much of this rich cultural folk-heritage has STILL not been…
Freedom means having the right to expressing one's views without fear of intimidation; the right to politically influence the future of one's own country; the right to embrace and celebrate one's own ancestral & cultural heritage; the right to expect one's ethnic identity to be respected.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who have been made to falsely believe they are free.
The English have always been slaves.
In researching examples of anti-English racism I am reminded of the mild furore that was created by Steve Knightley's song "Roots" some years ago. The lyrics are below .... see what you think
I still have no idea what persuaded Knightley to appear on the Radio 2 Mike Harding show to explain the lyrics and (presumably) to allay the fears of (folkie?) New British whingers that they were NOT racist, anti-immigrant or anti-multiculturalist and that he (Knightley) is not actually a paid-up member of the BNP.
I love all the pre-production stuff like writing, arranging, learning and recording the music and lyrics - this is what takes most of the time.
Then again I am consumed by the process of engineering the tracks to make them the best I can with the facilities and funding I have.
The software I use, Band In A Box and Cakewalk, isn't top of the line but is reliable and allows me to experiment with my music.
This is…Read more
Just bought two of your CDs and can't wait to hear them in full! I've been a folk music enthusiast for many years and found you courtesy of an American Drane who has been spreading word of your music via American genealogy sites! I'm a descendant of James Anthony Drane who came from England to Maryland in the very early 1600s, so we're cousins many, many times removed! Now I know where I got my long-time fervent interest in folk music! It's genetic! Also appreciate your thoughts on the "New…
According to the writer, English people (inter alia) should be grateful to the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) for "opening up traditional English music to an international audience" by uploading thousands of English manuscripts to the internet and a programme of events patronisingly-named 'The Full English'.
