A HELPFUL STATEMENT OF THE OBVIOUS:

Campaign to split UK 'may fuel race tensions' (Brendan Carlin, 15/01/2007, Daily Telegraph)

Campaigners fighting to break up the historic Union of England and Scotland are today warned they could end up fuelling racial tensions.

On the eve of the 300th anniversary tomorrow of the Treaty that paved the way to the Act of Union, Trevor Phillips, head of the new Commission for Equality and Human Rights, raises fears that the break-up of the UK could help reduce the British people to "a collection of ethnic tribes".


Nationalism is racism.

Awake O Mercia, and awake O Kent! Arise Northumberland and join as well, for your day of liberation is at hand. The unity of Britain is but an illusion; its hegemony over you has grown brittle and weak.
