It was so gratifying to read, after six years of blogging on the topic, Matthew d’Ancona admitting the real enemy:
The monarchy is doing fine – the problem is the oligarchy.
Look, I’m well aware that the Queen is a Welf and that the Welfs are the bloodline which has much to answer for. Leaving lizards and dragons aside for the moment, is the trouble stemming from them or are they just caught up in it?
Looking at the way the aristocracy behaves in Belgium, one wonders.
And yet, as Matthew d’Ancona states, the monarchy is still popular, it offers hope and many people at work yesterday were saying it actually brings people together, particularly in the form of the Queen mother and the Wills and Kate show. Whatever you might personally think of them, that wedding was one of the best going and there’s no doubt the mood of the people was one of hope.
Sure, any hope will be inevitably dashed and it’s bleedin’ obvious why. It’s also obvious that when you elevate the Blairs and Cleggs way beyond their station, then dire banality will follow – the incompetence, arrogance and greed of the tin god. One commenter:
This self-styled meritocracy tells us it is in charge because it merits the fact. This is total rubbish as it is in charge because it is in charge and devil take the hindmost. It is arrogant, aggressive, money-grubbing and wholly out of control.
This is what you get for elevating the children of the petit-bourgeois above their station. You don’t get equality, you don’t get the social democratic utopia, you don’t get justice. All you get is vulgarity, manipulation and exploitation.
The time is now well-overdue that these treacherous clerks are stuffed back into their dark box and the more timeless realities of this beautful country made manifest. Power to the common folk and God Bless our Queen!
I’m sorry but a reading of history tracing that family would indicate, I think, that G-d is not going to bless that bloodline and yet the sentiment is admirable. People want strong leadership. Christianity itself is all about that – an exemplary person showing the way. Every football club needs its leaders and we want them exemplary – strong, fair, firm and friendly. Every army needs that in its generals, not lions led by donkeys.
My own football club has the commentators saying: “When the chips were down, its leaders stood tall and delivered.” It makes a person feel good to know that there are such people and that they can be counted on. It is demoralizing to see the “leadership” at Westminster and in Washington and know just how spineless and corrupt it is. Yet there are sedition laws to prevent us saying this.
The very best model is a society where there is a bold, educated and compassionate leadership – that leadership bound by constitutionality and empathizing with the citizens.
For someone such as yours truly who believes this utopia is the ideal and is far happier as a loyalist rather than as a malcontent, then this quote is hard to take:
Privileged to have a traitor who signed away our sovereignty on the Lisbon Treaty, who oversaw the economic and social downfall over 60 years by politicians when she could have done something about it?
It’s hard to take because it’s unfortunately true to a great extent and yet the Queen is bound by her constitutional position. You can’t have it both ways – do you want an arbitrary monarch who can control your every action, your very life or do you want a constitutional leader? If you choose the latter, then she is bound by parliament in real terms.
And if that parliament is corrupt, paying a tithe to Tavistock and the round table groups, then what chance the nation? Another good comment:
Who in his right mind would suggest replacing the monarchy with a politician as our Head of State?
Unless events catch us up beforehand, I’d put my money on the Queen staying on to thwart Charles and to get her record over Victoria in September, 2015, eventually dying and giving Charles maybe ten years, a la Edward VII, to be followed by a Wills and Kate in their 40s. My betting is that if there is an antiChrist, then that’s where he might pop up, as the narrative states that the aC won’t know it until the actual time.
Just a thought and I don’t insist on it.
