Liberty GB recently received the following email from ex-serviceman Paul Lawrenson.
To whom it may concern.
I would just like to express my utmost thanks for your stance on the defence of our nation. It feels like there is someone still left in our land who is not afraid to hoist the flag and let it show its colours for all to see.
As a child I grew up in a small town called Leyland in Lancashire. Our town was predominantly English with some minorities running newsagents and other shops. I lived with my grandparents for most of my childhood and was brought up on good values of tolerance, independence and above all, patriotism – something that today is deemed to be 'racist'.
My grandfather was a veteran of World War Two and saw service in the Royal Air Force. He was part of the Berlin Airlift and often spoke of the people that left this country to defend it and the people who made it great.
When I was 16 years old I left Leyland to join Her Majesty's Armed Forces and to do my part in serving my nation. I wore the green uniform of the British Army for almost nine years and saw service in Iraq, Bosnia and Africa. Always proud to have the Union Flag upon my shoulder and to be representing my nation oversees.
Since leaving the service in 2005 I've pursued a career in the protective services industry, again back in Iraq and Afghanistan. But one thing that has always been evident in the Middle East, regardless of country, is the destruction of their own nations due to greed, religion and simple lack of humanity.
I'm currently working in Afghanistan where I saw Paul Weston's video on the decay and infection of the British way of life. As a patriotic Briton I am deeply concerned by the events which have tragically unfolded in London of late: the killing of soldiers on home soil, the chanting and protesting with banners of hatred and destruction by 'guests' of our nation.
Last Christmas a dear friend of mine worked in a homeless shelter in Liverpool, as she does every year. This particular year she emailed me and was pretty upset. She said that she was amazed at how many people she had spoken to were former military service members now living on our streets. She had asked why this was the case and was told it was because they didn't meet the criteria for housing or benefits. Question: How many immigrants do you see living on the streets?
Please don't take this as a rant or as a way of venting my frustration, but I feel that we are literally being overrun. I'd like to offer my support and services in any way possible to help keep the country British. I love my country, I'm proud to have served it and would again if asked. But I don't want my children to grow up in a nation which has been lost to people who are only set on destruction and violence.
I hope this email finds you well and may Britannia stay strong!
