So it is the morning after the day before. I really feel wonderful today, the sun is shining, the streets are gleaming and the birds are singing like never before. Just as the Prime Minister, David Cameron said many months ago, this was just what the country needed to lift it’s spirits in these uncertain times.
As the Royal couple look to the Gods thanking them for the wonderful weather, they contemplate their rightful position at the head of our countries hopes and dream, while the people look up admiringly.
What a wonderful scene.
The World looked on yesterday in awe at the way our society is organised, and how well we celebrate a wonderful day for the great and the good.
In true British tradition, all was forgotten for a day, as we opened the bubbly before 11 am draped in the Union Flag.
But this was not about a day, but about the country as a whole. We can now look forward and not back, no more thoughts of austerity or recession; job losses or cuts. No more worries about the NHS or our meritocracy, why should we worry when the context has finally been put into it’s rightful place.
There were jokes on twitter about the crowds being the start of the queue for the AV referendum! Of course now, after yesterday, no referendum is needed. Why would anyone want to vote to change the system we have. If an event could sum up our true beliefs as British people, it was the Royal Wedding. Lets celebrate the hereditary principle.
The House of Lords has worked fantastically well for the last 100 years so why change it? The Blairite attacks on our representative democracy by getting rid of the majority of our hereditary peers was simply an act of vandalism, an attack on the people, an attack on our constitution. It was no wonder he stopped reform when he did.
We need a system for stability, not change. A system that can bring strong government that we can be proud of, where a minority can rule over the majority, imposing their will on people that never voted for them. Only First Past the Post can do this. It is so important we keep this system, where the constitution ensures that our political system goes from the top down and not from the bottom up.
Socialism and its ideals nearly destroyed this country over the last 60 years. The so called “democratic movement” and those calling for “constitutional change” are simply socialists by any other name.
People don’t want more power, more accountability, or more say in their affairs. By all means let them sort out their own communities social problems in the Big Society as we withdraw support from the councils, after all they have also been infiltrated by these socialists. But when it comes to democracy, people know where they stand. As the picture above shows, the people look up to their betters and they look down knowingly. This is how it was always meant to be, its the best way, the only way.
Those campaigning for the yes to AV vote in the referendum just don’t get what is great about the British and the British constitution. Up until a few years ago, and disgracefully changed without even a debate, we were subjects and not citizens. In my view it should have stayed this way.
A society can move forward and be at peace with itself when we know where we stand. The monarchy, House of Lords, Disproportionate amount of power for a few politicians in the House of Commons, a Police force that will uphold the rule of law and take out newspaper sellers who defy the authorities, this is how it is meant to be.
We were born to be ruled by the elite, a small group of people who were born to rule, and educated to carry out their order, without interference by the ill educated masses or ethnic minorities.
Many attempts have been made to encroach on our freedoms. Health and Safety Fascists; Environmental socialists; and a Human Rights act that actually takes away our freedoms telling us how we should treat our own people. What right do they have to put limits on our rulers?
The church has shown itself exactly why it is at the heart of our constitution. Rightly attached and embedded into our constitution with our head of state. In a secular society this is just what we need.
Thank God, AV has been buried by this show of Britishness. The Royal Wedding has taken away the recession blues and the threat to our constitution. There is no need to be depressed at economic meltdown or the rise in homelessness. This is the way it should be. No need to reduce the amount of safe seats in parliament or increasing accountability, it is the way it is supposed to be.
Those that still, after all we have seen over the last few days, vote for AV should be ashamed of themselves. The fact that the BNP are campaigning against AV is just a double bluff of extremism. AV is an attack on the very nature of our Britishness, trying to assert the extremism of meritocracy on an unsuspecting nation.
I am so proud to be British, to be where I am in society. I doff my cloth cap with the rest of the nation to the Royals, Lords and MP’s, and to the way things are and have always been.
I love my country for the way it is. I am proud to be British.
