    I've long said, unless it's the Pistols version, "GSTQ" shouldn't be the default English Anthem, and we should have our own distinct song. My personal preference would be "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life", complete with the whistling. :cool:

    I have never been to watch England play, because I couldn't bear to be surrounded by people that boo players from the club I support. Muppets, the lot of 'em.

    I just hate fans who boo their own players, that's all.

    Thought you Trots were directed to 'support' non-imperialist nations anyway...

    I know they're so bad, I mean they should just sit there and be grateful for the privilege of paying through the nose and only be able to make sounds of approval.....

    Recent evidence suggests otherwise. The long held assumption that celts-moved west and were displaced by anglo saxons is looking increasingly a product of myth.

    To answer the OP. I wouldn't sing any sport song unless I was watching it live. And if I was watching live then you sing whatever your side are singing. If it's a crap song, then it's a crap song. But that's part of what live sport is about.

    Thanks for that. I'm sure you'll get loads of evidence on Stormfront to back up that White Nationalist viewpoint.

    I keep trying to do my research on their site, but every time I get distracted by the Stormfront Wives picture archive.

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    no that would be negative jingoism which we all know isn't tolerated round these parts positive jingoism is fine, it's tanned ones we don't want to upset not the leak eating sheep fuckers.... I mean I've even got welsh friends so know where I sit...:facepalm::D

    We don't lower ourselves to such antics in wales :p

    ETA.... by that i mean booing our own (welsh or cardiff city) players - I suppose if you support Chelski the majority of your team will play for countries other than England.

    Jonti what the dormouse said

    This is true.

    The "celtic" insistence they were driven into the hills and islands by an influx of "anglo-saxons" looks increasingly untenable ...
    Again: it simply shouldn't matter. But, while people make a fuss about racial origins and original inhabitants, it's sensible to know what really happened.

    Must be true. You read it on Stormfront after all.
     
  24. Jonti

    Jonti what the dormouse said

    No, but I am very interested in how stories like this are used by the likes of both you and stormfront to promote racist shit-stirring.

    Idaho blah blah blah

    There are two historical factors that undermine the Celtic displacement myths. The first is the scarcity/absence of archeological evidence for a large Saxon invasion, and Celtic massacre/movement. Secondly there is the modern genetic studies that, although contested, and as ernesto rightly points eagerly picked up by the BNP, are credible studies of the current genetic make-up of these islands. These seem to suggest that the movement of peoples prior and post Roman times are not as distinct as previously assumed.

    Err, you're the one peddling the white nation agenda.

    Yet all the written accounts from the time, from all sides, dispute this modern British unionist/nationalist revision.

    Who is this clown? :D

    I'm interested in learning more about these legends, if anyone has any pointers.

    I thought there was just the Tacitus stuff? I didn't realise there were other written accounts.
