He's lost his fucking mind
How do you tell that a country has died? I would say that the moment comes when its people no longer even know that they have lost their culture and their history. They simper vacuously at those who have swindled them, amid the ruins of their inheritance, not even aware that they have been robbed of it. Some people will dismiss the clear, specific evidence I offer for this as trivial, but I will explain why it is not.
I knew Britain was irrevocably dead a few summers ago, as I rode my bicycle through the quiet, largely unspoiled counties between Oxford and Cambridge, a day’s journey I make from time to time to search for the national pulse.
Among these quiet fields and small hills, John Bunyan walked and dreamed of his Pilgrim’s Progress. But I doubt if one in a thousand now living in these parts has even heard of the great English book that once stood, well-thumbed and closely known, next to the Bible on almost every cottage bookshelf.
If, on social media, I point out (as I have done) that man went to the Moon in feet and inches (as he did), that Europe was liberated from Hitler yard by yard and mile by mile (as it was), while the fences of concentration camps were measured in metres and the rations in the gulag doled out by the gram and the litre (as they were), it takes days for the abusive fury of the metricators to die down.
Hitchens would be appalled by the traitors who have taken over our 'real England' village. A UKIP infested campaign against a wind farm a few years back also got short shrift.
Another development has been proposed in the village for 34 dwellings, around Metcalfe Way, Cherry Orchard & Lode Way area.
If you have an opinion on the development which you would like to voice, there will be a meeting at the Arkenstall Centre this Wednesday (15th) at 7:30pm
