'ASHAMED TO BE BRITISH'

WHEN scout leader Eiji Nishia came to Ashton from Japan, he sampled the very best of British culture - fish and chips, bacon sandwiches and a pint in the local.Eiji was part of a 250-strong contingent of scouts from central Japan, who stayed with their Tameside counterparts before making their way to the Jamboree in Essex.But Eiji was also exposed to the darker side of British society when his belongings were stolen from a parked car.Scout leader Mark Fish took Eiji with a number of other leaders to the Oddfellows Arms on Alderley Street, Ashton, just before last orders last Thursday, August 2.They were in the pub for around 15 minutes, and left only to discover that thieves had broken into Mark’s car and stolen Eiji’s rucksack.The bag - a distinctive Japanese scout contingent rucksack sponsored by McDonalds contained a jacket and cap with the same distinctive logo. It also contained Eiji’s digital camera, which was a gift from his father, and a Japanese to English translator. Such a device is useless in the hands of anyone who does not speak Japanese.Mark said: “The people who did this should be totally ashamed to be British.“They just do what they want and don’t care how it affects other people.“Eiji had a really good time, but he is now going to go back to Japan remembering that his stuff had been taken in England.”He added: “It was an unbelievable shock for them and he was really puzzled as to how it could have happened.“He was very upset, but the overwhelming thing was just disbelief that anything like this could happen.”Anyone with any information is asked to call Ashton Police Station on (0161) 856 9374 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

We're British because our ancestors were British.

We have been conquered very quietly. Who did it? why?

Mr silly head said...

The EU's courts now have precedence over English courts. An EU judge ranks higher than an English judge. So much for National Freedom.

England our England is dedicated to the memory of Winston Churchill, William Shakespear and the other great Englishmen and Englishwomen who must now be spinning in their graves as the country they loved, respected, fought for[ and in so many cases died for] is torn apart and threatened with extinction.

A message for Hammer Head. You ask who has conquered us and why. If I answered that question truthfully I'd get 7 years. Shalom

Politicians like John Taylor would not be concerned to see the death of the British way of life. They hide behind this anti-nazi statement hoping that people will not vote for the British National Party. Let us scare the voters with nazi smear lies. Labour know that the British people are getting wise to their lies.
