They're too nervous because they've been told for decades that being proud of who they are is "racist." And because there are so many Muslims in Britain who hate all that Britain has always stood for. The government sides with them, banning people like Robert Spencer and me who are fighting for the principles, rights and freedoms that once made Britain great. The British people can see the way the wind is blowing. Of course they're nervous.

The English are more likely to be able to correctly name the date of the US Independence Day and St Patrick’s Day than they are their own national saint’s day, a new poll has found.
The survey found only 40 per cent were able to identify St George’s Day as falling on April 23, compared with 71 who could give July 4 as the American national holiday and 42 per cent who knew that March 17 was the Irish one.
British Future, a think tank specialising in identity and integration which carried out the study, says the results suggest many English people are too “nervous” to celebrate St George’s Day.
It cites concerns among many that national symbols like the St George’s Cross flag may be interpreted as racist by others, and that celebration of the national saint’s day could upset ethnic minority groups.
