Mongrel nation

There is nothing wrong with protecting your cultural and national identity as long as it is not fuelled by hate and discrimination. Its that simple. Be proud of who you are, I am a mongrel mainly from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and possibly some french in the mix. I may have other bloodlines too. Infact I am sure I do.
I am proud of growing up in Manchester, of my mums roots from there. I am proud of my Scouse fathers background. I am glad I lived and worked in Cymru for many years.
I hate no one due to their skin or religious beliefs. If I hate it is extremists, the corrupt, the cruel and the murderous. That includes all kinds people of all genders , sexuality, ability …. well you get the idea.
Raising a flag of St George, St Andrew, a Welsh Dragon or the tri-colour of a free Éire. Is not racist. It is not offensive unless being waved as a banner to justify hatred, fear and loathing.
I truly believe people should be free to roam our world, I believe if barriers were lifted throughout the globe then no one country would be any more over populated than any other.
Some would choose to live and remain in the lands of their ancestors and others would brave new frontiers.
Sadly we do not live in that utopian dream. We live in a world of greedy rulers that spread false fear to breed hate.
That wage wars to gain more wealth and power.
If you do not see this then take a step back. It is on clear view.
Your choices I guess.
But the things I am most proud of are being a father, being a son, being a brother and uncle. Being a friend. Being human.
I am proud of my background and most of my choices.
I am proud of being me.

Jonesy the Dog of Socialism

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
