Remember, They Loathe Their Own Country

From the much-publicised ‘Guardian’ article on plans for the Queen’s death:

The second Elizabethan age is likely to be remembered as a reign of uninterrupted national decline, and even, if she lives long enough and Scotland departs the union, as one of disintegration.

Life and politics at the end of her rule will be unrecognisable from their grandeur and innocence at its beginning.

“We don’t blame her for it,” Philip Ziegler, the historian and royal biographer, told me. “We have declined with her, so to speak.

This, from the same paper that routinely decries the Victorian era as racist, colonial, imperialistic and throttling the downtrodden workers to provide a patriarchal society with comforts…

“We have to have narratives for royal events,” the historian told me. “In the Victorian reign, everything got better and better, and bigger and bigger.

We certainly can’t tell that story today.”

You certainly can’t! The one you usually tell is unrecognisable from the one you’re harping on about here.

But any excuse to do the country down, eh?

    It’s this constant talking down of the nation I can’t abide and suspect many other people can’t either.

      The leftist fanatics really seem to believe the destruction of the West is fair punishment for past sins. You cannot reason with a fanatic.

    I’m sure the Queen enjoys reading about her own death, her favourite newspaper is the Telegraph not the Guardian as for Scotland please go, take all your alcoholics with you,
