It would appear that according to the Sussex Express I have aged and changed political affiliations as well.
Sorry to those who thought I was a thirty something left winger.

Regarding Tory Huw, photographed with Cameron, page 4. Correction Lewes was a traditional Conservative town, unfortunately no longer, Baker will have done 18 years, should the good lord preserve him until 2015. What made it a conservative town , its values,people and a substancial patriotic working class vote, have died out, or been replaced by outsiders, the politically correct or self obsessed like the Smiths and Britains oldest mother. Its a good thing youve lost your hair, as you would have been pulling it out trying to bring back the tory years in Lewes!

'patriotic working class'.... 'politically correct'... You know of course that 'patriotism' is also a form of political correctness - my country right or wrong, my mother drunk or sober.

"My mother drunk or sober" sounds like a game old bird? The reason why the tories unlike the liberals remained a party of government in the 20th century, was that it could get support from all classes. Now particularly in our cities , a once strong working class tory vote has died out. Being patriotic and proud to be British, was once identified with the party.

What does 'proud to be British' mean? I love English towns and the countryside because I was born and grew up here and know them best. I also love parts of France, Italy, Spain, San Francisco, Boston. But what does 'proud' mean?

Feeling honoured or pleased by some distinction. Yes, favouritism to a degree, as exists in all the other places you mention. Having been to the USA, you will know especially when it ciomes to news coverage, its as if the rest of the world doesnt exist.

Yes, Northern Bigot, I know exactly what you mean about US parochialism. And a bit too much flag-waving there for my taste - I always think too much display denotes a bit of self-doubt.
