This has been mentioned before on ARRSE - but some did not seem to understand its significance. So I am starting a new thread to try and clear up one or two misperceptions. http://www.steadfasttrust.org.uk/ Is the website for the English. The English as a group of people in a legal sense. Why is this important? Well the world is changing. If your heritage is English and you identify with that group of people you would rightly be classified as English. And under law that gives / should give you rights. Just as other groups of people have been exercising their rights for decades - under the law. Is this relevant to a majority group of people? Well yes - just because you are in a major group that does not mean you are protected 'all of the time'. Recently a woman who was classified by a potential employer as 'English' was denied a job because she was English. This case made the national news. Steadfast (or more accurately its legal arm,) stepped in and the employment position was withdrawn. Why is it important for soldiers? Well - just to know that this charity is there and is operating may be of comfort. No one is saying that the Army operates discrimination. But it is good to know that the Steadfast Trust is there. What to do? Make a note of the web address and please donate if you feel that this means something to you as a person - not necessarily as a soldier. £10 per month may be all it takes. To sum up. There are thousands of legal charities like this - but this is the first in legal history for 'The English' - it is ground breaking and is new. If you identify with it and oine day you may need it, then it has relevance to you as a person.
