This icon of the British Empire seems to be losing its strength in today's much wanted multi-cultural England. I have read today that Prison Officers in ENGLAND are not allowed to wear this sacred emblem as it is deemed racist.
Racist, now there's a word you don't want to mess with. Would we have racism if we all deemed ourselves ENGLISH born and bred? And for those that use this word, it is just as easy to leave England as it is to get in these days. There have unfortunately been many natural disasters over the past 18 months - population checks, as I seem to remember it being called, so there is plenty of space out there for you to fill.
