Hey there! I've been thinking about the coming days and the way things are going within the organisation. There are very few critically minded brother's and sister's that I know of and I would love to be able to connect with like minded ones who love Jehovah and are awake to what is actually going on within the organisation. I feel there may be times when we are going to need each other for support in one way or another. Is there anyone here from England?

There are several members that live in England, but I will let them chime in. Just allow time.

I am a Brummie and a Brummie is me: Welcome! I'm from Handsworth, Birmingham...home of the Industrial Revolution!
 
Hey there! Thanks for reaching out. I have friends in Handsworth....not been back for a long time though. Once upon a time I wanted to move there. I'm in West Yorkshire.
Yes! Excellent place to be raised in. You just cannot be racist when as a child you are introduced to different cultures in your own street; Anyway welcome to the forum; Our Watchman has provided a place of refuge for those of us bruised by Watchtower. (I say 'bruised' but more truthfully almost finished off!)

My wife and I resided in the UK for a few years. Does that count?
No. Even those that left on the Mayflower were illegal immigrants deported by Charles the Ist. The first true Englishman arrived on Saturday 2nd February 3411BC just in time for tea at 4.pm. At that time, the place was deserted, virgin land and he built himself a rather nice home on the Sussex Downs. He opened a small grocery shop on a high street he made but as custom was quite sparse, he built a good pub next door and soon there was quite a few in attendance. Edwin was his name, and unless you are descended from him, you are not English. His kingdom stretched as far north as Watford, which is just to the left of the upper reaches of what became London. Beyond there, “Northerners” appeared and started drinking from cans and eating strange foods such as haggis and living in places such as birmingham. They are not English, but are known only as “Northerners” and speak a foreign language, known as “Northerner” and which is totally incomprehensible.

Mick, she asked if you were “English”. You are a “northerner“ and actually live in Birmingham. I know you have a train that visits Birmingham from London, but that does not mean you’re English - you’re still north of London! The train is simply there to deport northerners back to Birmingham. They come back empty. ☹️
 
I carry a secondary "Kiwi" passport, I think they still acknowledge the English magistrate. Does that count as being English?

Welcome @iamshesheisme to the forum. Glad to have you here.

I’m not directly from England although I do know that I come from English descent. Does that count?

Btw, did you get your username from a line in the Beatle’s song, “I Am the Walrus“ ?
Just wondering….

Mick we are the most racist country of all. We just don’t tell anybody and pretend we are nice and polite. I don’t think there is a country we haven’t ravished, plundered and enslaved!

I think they will let you into kiwi land. However, if you wish to come to England it’s quite simple even without a passport. Just alight at France and book yourself on an inflatable raft and paddle over the channel to Dover. I’ll pick you up if you let me know you’re coming and we can have a cup of tea on the beach.
 
Patricia from London. 😁
With a name like Patricia , I would guess you are from County Kilburn , as we call it , or Camden . Both , like other places that the English think are part of their country are in fact parts of Ireland . I live in Cornwall , but there is a language barrier . They say "Alright Den " . I tell them I am not called Denis , they then say "Alright Ary " . I then have to tell them I am not called Harry either . There must be a few people that look like me here , and they are mistaking me for them , but not when I speak . I have only recently found out that when the Irish use the word Sallow , it means pale , or fair skin . In English it means down and miserable . No wonder not many want to speak to me .

You have the correct meaning of sallow, at least the original meaning. But the pale or fair meaning was transferred by the inference of illness - in one looking pale - to mean looking ill or by inference, miserable. The word is essentially of norther European usage, stemming from Nordic or Russian languages referring to dark or unclear - makes sense the Nordic connection - as there was quite a lot of settlement by the Nordic countries in Ireland during the middle to late AD period 500/900 AD.

Nice to get something right . When we go shopping , we write messages , what the English call a list . We then put the shopping in the press , what the English call a cupboard . A hot press is what the English call a airing cupboard . A lad around the corner thought that I was conspiring with his lass to make him feel silly , when she mentioned a hot press . The more I tried to explain , the worse it got . When I was a navvy , the companies would have a load of words we used , and what we were saying . Rather like a dictionary , but more a list of how we had massacred the English language . A greeting could be , "About ye " , or Himself , herself , or "Hows yous " .

Yes! We are sons of empire; Yet they granted citizenship to all vestiges of the far empire who were now also sons and daughters of empire and because of being drafted into to WW2 and promised freedom; the real reason they got thier false freedom was because in post war Britain there was no one to man the bus service, serve as nurses, clean the offices and toilets of the gentry because we indigenous were now part of the union and above such meniality! Not me though or my parents who made existence out of making necessity and dependancy upon of our toilet cleaning and wiping arses of our anointed British betters! By the way: Princess Diana Spencer was offspring of the official trusted arse wiper of Henry eight and was given title because. I think you already know that B but for anyone else please research the Spencers! https://medium.com/lessons-from-history/groom-of-the-stool-bb96e0dfacba

May I just say?; Does any of us suffering ill health or having slipped on one of Satan's banana skins feel unworthy of employing faith because of feeling unworthy of redemption? Get over it! Employ! Employ! We are all unworthy of His love! Shame that wayward son who has taken advantage of the love and undeserved justice of our Father! Ezekiel 28:13-
