I paste here below an extract from an email and its referenced press release, which clearly confirm our Government in the UK planned to downplay the ANZAC role in our victory in World War One, the benefits of which are today still being squandered by these same politicians, of all main parties, by our deep immersion within the EU.
Dear Mr Cole
Britain Not To Recognise Our Anzacs
British government gave a press briefing recently in which they stated,
in essence, that the UK First World War celebrations would give
emphasis to coloured communities within Britain and not to what may be
generally termed as ‘the white skinned’ volunteers from countries like
Australia and New Zealand even though a significant proportion of our
troops were of differing ethnicities.
following media release has been sent to British media. Although not a
constitutional matter, our ANZACS fought for king and country and their
bravery should undoubtedly be recognised by the increasingly
‘politically correct’ administration in the United Kingdom.

MEDIA RELEASE - THE ANZACS PLAYED MORE THAN THEIR PART TO SAVE BRITAIN
have a right to be outraged at the insensitivity of the British
government in announcing, in a briefing to journalists, that their
proposals to commemorate the commencement of the First World War would
omit mention of the sacrifice made by the Anzacs (Australia and New
Zealand servicemen) but instead would focus on the role played by the
‘new Commonwealth’ countries as part of an internal ‘community cohesion’
should never play a part in recognising the bravery of those that are
gone. Many nations within the British Empire and Commonwealth fought to
save the homeland of Britain in both the First and Second World Wars.
Their losses should all be mourned collectively.
1914, Australia and New Zealand were both independent nations with
their own independent constitutions under the Crown. Our Anzacs lost
some 80,000 men in a war they didn’t have to get involved in, but
readily volunteered to fight for in foreign battlefields on the other
side of the world in loyalty and in gratitude to the country that
developed their lands into modern ‘law and order’ nations.
there will be a lot of backtracking and political hyperbole by British
officials and the sacrifice of our young men will in the end be
recognised. But that there was any hesitation on the part of what
appears to be an ungrateful Britain not to do this in the first place is
not only reprehensible but shows the disgraceful contempt of these
people for the history of their own country.
will be next on the agenda by these ‘politically correct’- the
whitewashing of Winston Churchill from British history books?
