With Rights come Responsibilities.....

The following has been paraphrased from the speech of a well-known American president, Teddy Roosevelt, speaking in 1907. Although the word "British" has been substituted for the word "American", the sentiment should hold true in this country today, one hundred and one years later:

"We should take the position that an immigrant who comes here in good faith, becomes a British citizen, fully accepts our values and assimilates himself to us, should be treated as exactly equal with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet a British citizen, with a full acceptance of our values, and nothing but a British citizen.

There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is a British citizen, but something else also, isn't a British citizen at all. We have room for but one flag, and that is the British flag.

We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the British people."

Anybody out there who thinks different - no names, no pack drill - you have been put on notice. Death to the lickspittles of Political Correctness! Death to the running dogs of Multiculturalism!

Sorry, I got a bit carried away there with that last bit. Still, I expect you can see where I'm coming from.
