Dad was not only in the Fire Service but in the Home Guard (Dads Army) as well when not fighting fires. He was deemed unfit for the armed forces because he had several toes missing after an argument with a tram in his misspent youth, but that’s another story.
I was 5 yrs old when the picture was taken. I was so desperate to do my bit and fight that nasty Mr Hitler that my mother made me the sailors outfit and put me in command of “HMS Coalshed”. As you can see from the background at that time we were living in a slum area due to the fact that our house vanished one night and was replaced by a big bomb crater. (No, we weren’t in the house at the time).

Just what is happening to our England? It seems that this traitorous far left extremist Labour party have withdrawn their funding of the now famous Black Country St George’s Day Parade with the feeble excuse that it would attract “extremists”.
More than 20,000 people turned up at last years event and had a great time, myself included. Does this mean that we are all regarded by Sandwell Council (Labour dominated) that we, as patriots trying to keep our traditions and culture alive, are regarded by them as “extremists”?
I think the real reason they want rid of the St Georges Day parade is because they are frightened of offending the ethnic minorities; the very people that Labour are relying on to vote them back into power in May, when they can finish the job of destroying our heritage and culture forever!
Look at the evidence to date:
1. Bradford, 2 years ago. St George parade cancelled because it’s offensive to Muslims. A march to celebrate St George’s Day was axed – because the authorities feared it would spark race riots. About 1,500 children were due to take part in a parade to commemorate the patron saint of England. WTF!
There are many more instances of the politically-correct do-gooders trying to brainwash the English people into believing that we are institutionally racist.
I for one cannot accept the fact that we have to bow down to the ethnic minorities and abandon our own culture so as not to offend their culture. I was was always taught that “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”, so why can’t they recognise our traditions in the same way they expect us to recognise their festivals and traditions? The real truth of the matter is that it’s not the immigrants who are offended, but this despicable Government is trying to destroy us as an English nation and replace use with god knows what!
End of rant.
