It has been put to me that I shouldn't say (as with a previous post) that I am ashamed of being British because it will not win any votes, I responded by saying 'TOUGH' there are things that make me ashamed of being British, some attitudes held, some opinions voiced and some narrow minded nationalism.

Having said that there is a lot more that makes me proud of being British, Scottish and a global citizen. I am proud that the UK has one of the lowest unemployment rates in Europe, I am proud that this UK government has made tremendous strides in reducing child poverty (lot still to be done), I am proud of the national wage, I am proud of the community that I represent electorally and I am proud that the Labour Government is acting globally to end world poverty. What makes you proud to be British?
