Personal request [Shipley]

Between now and the General Election, I’m going to ask readers, writing as myself, not as part of the Albion Alliance, to support this candidate or that but of course, this means you’d need to be in that constituency to make a difference.

Today,  it’s Philip Davies, Conservative MP for Shipley.  Better Off Out describes him this way:

At a time when so many MPs have betrayed the public’s trust in them, Philip shines out as a man of principle.  The first MP to call for Britain to leave the EU, he has willingly sacrificed any prospect of self-advancement in order to lead the crusade to regain Britain’s freedom and independence from Brussels.

He doesn’t appear to be up against UKIP but even if he was – his message is quite clear – referendum please on the EU.  I think it takes a lot of courage to defy the whip and vote for one’s conscience.  Perhaps if people could include some support for him on their blogs, every little bit helps.

Emily comments at the Telegraph:

We studied Shakespeare ever year in my latter four years of school. When we started (Romeo and Juliet) and I thought Shakespeare was dumb. I just couldn’t get into it. The next year we went to see a performance of the Taming of the Shrew and I was transfixed. I realised that Shakespeare is best watched than read. Still, I was able to take the leap and enjoyed reading several more playes, even some on my own,. All school children should have the chance to see Shakespeare performed. It does make the difference.

Why isn’t the bard popular with the socialist curriculum devisors?  The dark knight says:

What is wrong with England?



Stephen Garnett, editor of This England magazine, said:

”We’re incredibly disappointed that English people are afraid of displaying the St George’s Cross on our patron saint’s day.  It was quite shocking to see some of the results, particularly the amount of people that don’t fly the flag because of fear of being judged.  It just shows what political correctness has done to the English people over the years.”

There are so many factors, not least being the concept of the Union Flag.  One of the major reasons though is that we are now suffering the coming of age of a new generation of socialist miseducated children of ASBO susceptibilities, a process which really kicked in in the 70s, along with the disgruntled Gen X and its resentment of the Boomers plus the factor mentioned by Stephen Garnett – the debilitating PC pall which hangs over the land, embraced by so many.
