Old Britain is the national identity, sense of self and history and continuity, which is rejected by the New ultra-self-consciously multiculti Britain, without a rooted sense of self, or history and which violently rejects the wish for ethnic-national continuity common and natural to all peoples.
If there's emtion in the words that's fine, you yourself are very expressive of your disgust for the Old Britain and the people who love it. But I'm positively emotional about something which is ancient and still exists, while you are negatively emotional about an existing national group you dislike, and positive about one which might never be. You are welcome to the gamble, but you should not be allowed to risk my nation for your selfish gain.
Your knee-jerk responses are frankly risible. You claim that I judge you, yet you hold me out to be "negatively emotional about an existing national group"? Purrlease.
If "old Britain" goes hand in hand with blatant prejudices, then you can bet your top hat that I'm going to be very expressive in my disgust for it.
No. You're positively emotional about faux-glory history (which I love your rose-tinted verison of, by the way). I'm emotionally positive about the future and building a strong Britain, something you are dead set against because you're stuck in a time-warp.
This is the 21st century. Walling people out of our country because Britons such as yourself suffer from insecurity about the loss of "British culture" from "old Britain" will not produce a stronger and more dynamic society in the long-run. And what's more, although multiculturalism is already here, you continue to reject it. And if you want to get personal then I think that by supporting segregation and racial seperation, you are gambling with my modern multicultural Britain, in the hope that you can return Britain to how it used to be in the god old days: somehow perfect.
It is people like you, clinging to your "old Britain" that cause problems for a multicultural society. You see the decline of British industry, the decline of the British Empire, the decline of British culture even (in your eyes) and you attribute it to immigration. How pathetic. You need to move on from mercantilism, lose your outdated racialist views and accept that people are people everywhere you go, and in reality, almost everyone regardless of race or ethnicity or whatever wants to lead a better life and leave a better world to their children. Your irrational fears that immigrants want to destroy Britain are unfounded and incorrect, but above all reactionary. You feel that Britain has declined in the same period as immigration has increased, and assume that the two must be connected. So with a few links at the bottom of your signature in an internet chat-room you feel that you have found the answer to all of societies problems and that everyone else is just too stupid to see it.
I would laugh, were it not so desperately sad.
