England seems to be on a slippery Slope
I was looking at pictures of a 100 year old metal lathe and follow the link to get more information which turned out to be this site.
Never did find the lathe but the site owner has been tracking England's slide for years.

There's a lot more at the site.

Well there is a difference between St George's Cross and the Union Jack.
But then again the slippery slope is, I guess, the mounting nationalism and far right thoughts of some English people.
