The Left have spent decades attempting to convince the English that there is something shameful about pride. Don’t let them succeed, they are only doing it in an attempt to undermine your self confidence. It is a form of bullying. Don’t give in to them, they do not have your best interests at heart.
May Day never used to be an enforced public holiday, until the Left decided that it would be a good idea to celebrate left-wing revolution all over the world, following in the footsteps of there Marxists and Communist comrades marching in Red Square, et al, along with assorted missiles and other weapons of warfare. So the seven UK public holidays became eight, so employers have to let there employees have the day off with pay (not compulsory, but obligatory) so that they could go off and sing the Red Flag and march with their union bruvvers if they wanted. Of course there was an older more British cultural reason for celebrating May Day but that was rather lost in the political posturing of the worldwide Left.
The fact is that English crusader knights ‘adopted’ St George, and for the English he had a particular, growing symbolism for us from that time on. For us he became a symbol of English identity and nationalism. An awful lot of history happened after the fall of the Roman Empire, and as you must know it was the Saxons who came to dominate England in the centuries following, and then the Normans. St George came to symbolise the identity of what became a Norman-Saxon England. In later centuries still, and as I can remember up until the 1950s, St George retained his symbolic unifying force for the English, and St George’s day was strongly celebrated.
Only the hordes of immigrants forced, unwanted and un-voted for, onto the English, have caused the symbolism of St George to be (often deliberately by national and local authority) diluted, evaded, and often forgotten.
It never ceases to amaze me how much the left wing British elite hate England.
George Orwell noted this attitude in his 1941 essay, The Lion and the Unicorn:
“In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse racing to suet puddings. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during ‘God save the King’ than of stealing from a poor box.”
