Pretty much this. I like being English and if possible I'd like to stay British. I love our traditions, I'm a true tea drinker. I think we have a great history and I'm proud of my ancestors and how far we've come.
However, I don't like my government, I don't like how my country is turning, I don't like how it's being invaded by Muslims and I don't like how you're labeled a racist when I decide to fly a St George's Cross from my window during the world cup. I recognise my government is responsible for more bad than good, then again who's isn't?
Oh ye I also hate how at times we are either the 51st state of America or a slave to Europe. Never British. In fact we're encouraged not to be British, as that would be wrong, obviously.
So which wing of the EDL do you belong to? Muslims aren't invading, they're immigrating.
and @JOSEPH X: Stop talking sh*te.

He shouldn't assume he'd be miserable in Africa and look at slavery as some kind of blessing. Perhaps he should do some research on the impact slavery and other colonial acts had on that continent, particularly Western Africa which is where his ancestors are most likely from.
Well how is he supposed to look at it? By a simple accident of fate he's been transported to a developed nation from a developing area of Africa which is at the moment beset with civil war and strife. It is safe to assume that his quality of life in the West is better than it would be across 95% of West Africa, and so yes to him personally slavery was a blessing.
Note: Before you start frantically constructing straw men I'm not attempting to justify slavery, I'm just saying that it worked out very well for their descendants who now live in developed societies.
