The rationality of the British worker: a bulwark against terrorism and racism

The killing of drummer Lee Rigby has again shown the wish of terrorists and racist extremists to create tension and hatred between the white population and other communities of our nation, particularly the Muslims. The terrorists see themselves already at war with anyone who does not share their views and religious interpretation. Extremists like the EDL and BNP use the murder to create animosity and division.

Fortunately a long history of trade unionism and the legacy of  industry and its roots in science and the enlightenment have left a culture among workers which is too rational, humane and sceptical to fall into the trap of hatred for fellow citizens who look different or have another religion. The period of history when Protestants fought Catholics has also resulted in a love of tolerance. Britons did not follow Mosley when tragically many in Europe fell prey to fascist propaganda.

The security of our nation depends more on our inclusive, rational culture than any other measure. We must defend it and nurture it.
