D*m Whiggery.

Well, I spent time today watching the goings-on in the House of Commons. Because we are a 'democracy', our current regime actually allowed them nearly six hours to discuss a piece of legislation which is as significant in its innumerable lacunae as it is in its actual text. 

Not many speakers gave much historical context. Two who did ... 'Knights of the Shires' as we call them ... Sir William Cash and Sir Bernard Jenkins ... commended this legislation (I can't recall their precise words) for being in the spirit of the Dutch Invasion of 1688. Months ago, silly little Rees Mogg made a similar admission. 

Nice to know that even people seen as being on the 'traditional' side of politics are in favour of welcoming a foreign invader with enthusiastic courtesy. Hardly surprising that so many membrs of our 'Establishment' in 1939 were on the lists of potential collaborators. When Field Marshal von Rundstedt disembarked at Lyme Regis, he would have been surrounded at dinner that evening by the Great and the Good, all hurriedly Making their Name with the new order. Best of all, we can rejoice that the Conservative benches still now include Members who regard Treason as really a rather jolly sort of lark. At least, as long as it's in a slightly distanced area of History.

I can think of two good reasons for us being 'out of Europe':

(1) The attempt of Europe, some years ago, to write a Constitution with a Preface including a historical survey of Common European Values which leap-frogged all the way from ancient Greece and Rome to the 'Enlightenment'. As in 1984, real History was to disappear down the little tube which consigned it to oblivion ... the Real History in this case being a millennium-and-more of Christianity.

(2) Two Eastern European countries, members of the EU, keep getting ganged-up on by the rest because they try to retain a few shreds of Christendom in their national cultures. Had we remained in the EU, our de facto regime would probably have joined the bullies and kept voting against them. 

So perhaps it is best for us to be off their backs. 

Good luck to both of them.

God bless Christendom.

Odd that those two MPs should hail that particular historical event since they are both identified as Catholics

One can be a Catholic and a Daft Idiot simultaneously, it seems...

The Dutch invasion of 5th November 1688 had three times as many ships as the Spanish Armada, and many more troops. Good to see it referred to as it really was, and not some (in-)Glorious Revolution.

Entirely applicable to the whole post-WW2 suicidal drive to turn England, Scotland and Wales into an outpost of the Third World, making believe that every kind of alien is suddenly "British". With the vigorous support of the churches.

La Trahison des Clercs, indeed.

Dear Father. Here is hoping Brexit leads to a restoration of nationality for your once great country.

The American conservative thinker Sam Francis noted that Globalisation (desired by progressives) involves the the managed destruction of the nation, its sovereignty. its culture, and its people.

Such destruction has been going on for a very long time in America and the persons educated, um taught, um indoctrinated, in The Academy these past 60 odd years presumably never read what John Jay, writing as Publius, observed ...

With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people - a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs...

The Preamble to The Constitution delineates for the world to read what the founders intended for The republic:

...and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity...

Owing to the evils of progressive ideology, those historical truths have been attacked as events/things/principles which violate Diversity when it is obviously the case that such Cultural Stability was a blessing.

When was the last time a politician cited Cultural Stability as a blessing?

In similar vein to this fatuous Whiggery, I can think of (but shall not mane) other self-styled Catholics in public life who have trotted out the vacuous cliche that 'Islam needs a Reformation'. It had one in The fourteenth century with the eclipse of the Mutazilites, and Bin Laden was the result.

Your constitution is a great part of your problem - it is crystalised whiggery/Lockeanism. You US people will never get anywhere until you disown its false principles.
