Why Britain Needs More Patriotism

The United Kingdom is no longer united, it is divided.

Being a multicultural country, Britain is automatically divided. Multiculturalism separates us by Religion, Race, Culture and Values, at a time when the left is doing their best to divide us on many political issues, such as Brexit, Socialism, Scottish and Welsh Independence and more. So how can we unite the country?

The most effective way of uniting any two people is to give them a common interest. An interest that has united Britain for centuries and has made us a global leader. The love and respect for Queen and Country.

There are many positive benefits to having a more patriotic society. For example, a sense of solidarity and love for our country is a sentiment which binds. It is a shared feeling and common goal to do what’s best for the nation as a whole, therefore benefitting the communities within it. This also helps immigrants to integrate into their communities.

Patriotism has been demonised by the left for too long. Instead of encouraging support for our country’s culture and traditions, the left have intentionally tried to destroy it. Such as, branding the English flag as racist and anyone who flies it proudly as a racist.

More recently, they have moved their attention to the Union Jack and historical monuments, erasing a largely proud and rich history deliberately. This makes it difficult for people to show support and loyalty for their country over the fear of being called racist, which is divisive and does not help anyone.

So imagine a United Kingdom where the people of Britain pledge an Oath of Allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen and her successors. A United Kingdom where singing the national anthem is an honour and a privilege no matter your race or religion, no matter whether you are English, Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish. A truly United Kingdom.
