Why not write something then?

Articles written in this style are fun to read but this one is way off the mark in terms of comedic observation. I only recognise 2 of the stereotypes portrayed, the main one being the real reason you wrote the article: to ridicule and distance the green movement from traditional British folk culture. The "traditionalist" you describe would drink organic ale, worship a green goddess, and campaign against motorways, etc. the fact that this may have originated at a time when we were wary of those who would disrupt our merry England is by the by. Is schnews not engaged in a similar battle for the planet?

I expect a forward-thinking schnews to build bridges with hitherto unidentified allies, rather than segregate people and label them 'part of the enemy' just to be clever.

We started writing about three interesting but unrelated things happening in June. Here is an amalgamated version, which is worth a read.

Is this the last March for England? “They have become the fools in a carnival of anti-fascism” Stop MfE protestor

Fascists to attempt to take the home end... again.

Outnumbered Swansea racists have their flag confiscated.

Many undocumented people have spent a harsh winter on the streets in Calais after squat clampdown.

UKIP are having a public meeting in Portslade, but will Johnny Foreigner be let in?

In the case of Ukraine our domestic media is blatantly cheerleading for the rioters, focussing particularly on the admittedly striking presence of Dr Ironfist himself, one time world heavyweight boxing champion Vitali Klitschko. But just who is rioting in Kiev and what do they want?

Global solidarity for African refugees in Israel, as tens of thousands march in Tel Aviv in the face of state repression, racism and detention.
