There's a new breed of British nationalist after recent terrorist attacks dialled up of the rhetoric of angry white males threatening to "take back the streets".
Ostensibly, the anger is aimed at Muslim extremists but the question of nationalism and the source of their frustration is much more complex, fuelled by governments seeking to apportion and shift blame.
The anger comes in the wake of the Manchester bombing which killed 22 people and the rampage on London Bridge and the Borough Market which claimed eight lives.
With the British general election leaving Prime Minister Theresa May without a majority and needing to form government within the constraints of a hung parliament, the mood is indicative of voters' frustration with both major parties and the desire to look for alternatives.
Born and bred Englishman, West Ham United supporter and father of two young children, Danny Panrucker, has always considered himself fair-minded and tolerant but he now feels let down by the system.
"It's growing more and more now and the average working white man is at boiling point and wants to take action into their own hands," Mr Panrucker said.
"They feel frustrated with a liberal and left media that does not portray what the real Britain is feeling. Anger is at boiling point," he said.
Wake up England we are at war on our streets
Mr Panrucker's social media threads are dominated by discussions about how the government is failing its citizens.
"Wake up England we are at war on our streets. War has been declared and if we are English we will oblige," he posts on Facebook.
"I have a job to keep my kids safe in a developed country and at present they are not safe. I know I'm f****** ready now."
As in the past, nationalism rises during times of heightened insecurity and lack of trust in the ability of the government to meet its social contract.
Whether its Brexit or anti-immigration or austerity measures, they all play a role but its easier to find a scapegoat in those who do not share common "values".
Expert in the Sociology of Terror, Professor Michael Humphrey from University of Sydney said the response to recent attacks had been framed as a global war on terror but, in truth, it was a lot more regional.
He said acts ot terror had a symbolic impact, we can imagine it happening in our city, and we buy into the idea that its globalised but its not a global phenomenon.
"The discourse in dishonest. There is a distortion of the risk, an exaggeration that feeds collective fear."
To put it in perspective, Robert Muggah, co-founder of the SecDev Group, recently published statistics on Politico which showed mortality rates in the European Union, and for every 100,000 people, 0.027 were likely to die at the hands of a terrorist while cancer would claim 265.
England has this nostalgia as part of their national identity. They still feel the loss of power, prestige and importance.
Governments approach the question of terrorism through surveillance and security, through the idea it is planned and organised which plays into the response to the Manchester bombing - Libyan networks, training, logistics. Governments feel better able to respond to planned attacks."
"London Bridge and the Borough Market were something else. They ask, what is this?"
"But in response to attacks, governments ramp up penalties, laws, surveillance, they rescale their efforts."
"That's why law and order campaigns work. There is an idea if we can control the evil, or the criminal, we can solve the problem."
Prime Minister Theresa May, in the days leading up to a general election, said she was prepared to rip up human rights laws to impose new restrictions on terror suspects.
But it was May who oversaw the gutting of the police force cutting 20,000 officers which critics claim hampered the grass roots gathering of information on terror suspects.
"They talk about a global response instead of localising and democratising it, in terms of responsbility," Prof Humphrey said.
He said in terms of spontaneous protests or violence, there had to be a moment that galvanised a collective expression of frustration.
But he warned there was always a chance of revenge attacks.
"It can be symbolic in the same way, others can amplify (the nationalist) message through fairly limited acts."
"England has this nostalgia as part of their national identity. They still feel the loss of power, prestige and importance."
