Northumbrian/Northern nationalism: NOW A REALITY?

Postby Nationalist Northumbria » Thu Nov 26, 2020 11:53 am

Northumbrian nationalism has previously been mocked on NSG as having no supporters, as lacking support. But now, with the Northern Independence Party having launched just a month ago and now having more than ten thousand followers on Twitter, as well as having a thousand people registered to help out with the party, it seems as though they have been proven wrong. While you can argue that Twitter is not a representative sample of the population, we have been seeing mass support for Northumbrian independence on "football Twitter" and that's as representative of the Northern youth population as you can get.

There is now broad support for Northumbrian independence, from rightists dissatisfied with Westminster to leftists dissatisfied with Westminster. And "dissatisfied with Westminster" covers a lot of the people here right now, especially as UK PM Boris Johnson has just announced that the North will be stuck under the harshest coronavirus restrictions while worse afflicted areas in the South get off with much less.

The Northern Independence Party has already announced that they plan to stand candidates in the 2021 local elections. This will be a test of Northumbrian nationalism's popular support. But perhaps even before then we will get the opinion poll on independence so many demanded in the past?

Northumbria has a rich history. This ancient kingdom is in the process of being reborn. What are your thoughts, NSG? Personally, I completely support Northumbrian independence and I am proud of the Northumbrian people.

Doubt it will get many votes and FPTP guarantees they will make no progress what so ever. Also lol at the idea Northumbria will just take parts of Scotland including its capital, not a chance.

See UKIP and the EU referendum.

Nobody's advocating for that right now. We're focused on the independence of the parts currently in England.

“Right now.” It reassuring that in a push for greater regional autonomy, you already have plans for invading Scotland.

Didn't the Mods ban you from ever establishing a new thread for this stupid concept of the North-East of England gaining independence?

Shouldn't this really go in the UK politics thread (as much as I don't want it to be discussed more than it has been in there).

It's up to the people of the historically Northumbrian areas in southern Scotland to decide.

"Right now" its never gona happen. Scotland nor the UK is ever going to give an independent Northumbria its capital city and a bunch of land because some Northern English people say so

Also UKIP doesnt exist any more mate in any way that matters. And as for the EU referendum thats not really comparable when the answers are "Yes/No" as opposed to "Conservative/Labour/Liberal Democrats/Greens/Insert local party here"

Also if you are looking at Brexit and going "Yeah we should do that!" then Sigmar have Mercy on you.

How is it no longer viable? Under Corbyn it was criticised as anti-military and unpatriotic. It is not these things under Sir Keir Starmer. Also whilst the "He hates the Army" stuff lost it working-class votes (and officer class ones), his economic policy lost him middle-class votes. How is Starmer "no longer viable" to the working and middle-classes?

What an insulting attack.

No, it's about what Westminster has done. Look at what happened with Manchester and Andy Burnham. Not enough support when support was needed, then when we complained about that they cut the support even further. And that's continuing. And happening all over the North. If Northumbria was independent we would be able to protect all our people, including the elderly.

When you have actually statistics than all of the North wants to be independent, come back to me.
Because Yorkshire will not want to be part of a neo-Northumbria. Neither does the North-West.

Keir Starmer is wanting to federalise the UK, which I agree with.
And he is not appealing to the South, he is holding the Tories to account, which is his primary job for now. HE does not need to go into policies until near the election.

No, I am not a Northumbrian, I am a Yorkshireman. A 1,500 year old map does not make me identify as a Northumbrian.

Good point. But how would Northumbrian manufacturing compete with cheaper powers in Asia?

No, I'm using Brexit as an example of a party that, while it didn't win under FPTP, forced its policies to get a referendum which then passed. There was also a time in the 1970s when Scottish independence was seen as possible when the SNP made a breakthrough even despite FPTP (and given the current circumstances such a breakthrough could easily be repeated here with Northumbrian nationalism and the Northern Independence Party).

We'll be able to gauge public opinion with the 2021 local elections - or, as I said in the OP, maybe we'll get an opinion poll. A lot of supporters of Northumbrian independence, in fact most of them, come from Yorkshire or the North West. And I'm sorry but he is but that's really a discussion for the UK politics thread.
