There hasn’t been a Witanagemot Blog Roundup for a long time so, in the final days of 2007, here are a selection of posts worthy of note from Witan bloggers in December …
Councillor Tony Sharp of the Waendel Journal questions the motives of the Torygraph’s “Call Yourself British” campaign. “As a supporter of the Union it is a campaign that I would support – if the Union was actually under threat,” says Tony.
Kev found a question in the House of Commons Hansard on the right of Scottish MPs to vote on English matters which was met with the usual response from New Liebour – “The Government do not accept that there should be any discrimination in the rights of hon. Members to take part in the business before the House. English votes for English laws would lead to the break-up of the Union”.
Still with Kev, there’s the mystery of the identity of the Pullitician in his funny story. I wonder who it could be …
Witanagemot blogger, Andrew Ian Dodge, was treated for cancer in the US recently and highlights the difference in cancer care in the UK and it’s not looking good. I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing Andrew a full and speedy recovery.
Tom Paine asks “How, precisely, does Gordon Brown hope to perpetuate the Union by encouraging the flying of the Union Flag from English public buildings, whilst the Saltire flies from those in Scotland?”
Gareth suggests that our glorious leader “should fuck off to Scotland and seek election to the Scottish Parliament” if he wants to start unilaterally imposing new working practices on English GPs. Any arguments? No?
Hereward the Wake is going to the “Is the West Lothian Question unanswerable?” debate in the House of Lords in February. The “debate” has been arranged by the Hansard Society and the WLQ will be ”debated” by the Scottish former unelected Lord Chancellor, Charlie Falconer and Scottish MP, Malcolm Rifkind. The “debate” will be chaired by Scottish broadcaster, Sheena MacDonald. Well, you wouldn’t expect an Englishman to be involved would you? Alfie gives forewarning, though, if you want Falconer you’re going to have to go through him first.
Witan newcomer, John Trenchard, discusses the logos of the unelected regional development agencies that the British government imposed on the English euroregions a few years ago.
Nourishing Obscurity declares the end of Britain and calls the English to arms. There’s a mention of gallows … anyone know where I can buy some good, strong hemp?
David Camoron gave a lovely speech to the handful of Scottish Tory voters in Scotland which rubbed a few people up the wrong way. I must confess, he got me a bit worked up.
Iain Dale beat the dead tree press to publishing the results of a poll commissioned by the SNP on Scottish voting intentions. If the results are to be believed, Scotland is happy with the SNP, will continue voting SNP and (even amongst Liebour supporters) most Scots think that Gordon Brown is a waste of space.
EDM266 (Gordon Brown should renounce the Scottish Claim of Right) was one of the most blogged-about events amongst the Witan bloggers in December. Me, Pox Anglorum, Gareth, Nourishing Obscurity, Anger of a Quiet Man.
We live in interesting times. The world is changing but our own little corner isn’t changing quickly enough. England is fast approaching the point of no return – either the British establishment will destroy England to protect their union (and jobs) or the English will rise and say “no more”. One person saying the right thing at the right time can change the course of history – we all have a unique opportunity to help save our country and ensure that the English children of today grow up to be the English (not British, West Midlander, South Easterner or European) adults of tomorrow.
