African Dancers, Bongo Drums and a Punjabi Hymn… The Oh-So Modern Arrival of Britain’s New Archbishop

Quentin Letts, Daily Mail (London), March 21, 2013

Habemus Cantaur, as they might say in Rome. Days after the installation of the latest Bishop of Rome, Canterbury yesterday enthroned its own new Archbishop in a service whose vaulting ceremonial accommodated bongo drums, a Punjabi melody–and suppressed giggles from the Duchess of Cornwall.

It was a quintessentially Anglican do with wedding hats, thunder rolls of organ and splodges of political correctness.

Enter processions with crucifers and taperers, lay clerks, sheriffs, the ceremonarius, a whole arsenal of canons. There were various virgers, vesturers aplenty, and a dean as damp and kindly as Sergeant Wilson from Dad’s Army.

David Cameron and (atheist) Edward Miliband sat beside one other. Speaker Bercow had brought along his pretty young trainbearer.

Cabinet minister Chris Grayling was there in his guise and garb as Lord Chancellor, looking a bit like third herald in the Christmas panto at Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre.

We also had African dancers. It was they who set off Camilla, sitting beside the Prince of Wales.

PrinceOfWales

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, watch dancing Africans.

The African chaps came jiving past in the middle of the service, twirling, yoo-be-dooing, their knees bouncing as high as blokes walking on a hot beach. Yeowww, bro’, that sand is hot!

Who can blame Camilla? Her lips did a crumple, the shoulders started to shake and if she had been drinking soup she might have done the nose trick.

The 105th Archbishop, Justin Welby, wanted this to be known as his ‘inaugural service’ but enthronement was indisputably the word when he sat in the ancient cathedra Augustini–the physical, marble Chair of Augustine, which may date to the 6th century.

He looked the part in it and his clear, strong voice bespoke a man at ease with the tasks ahead.

Thomas Becket sat in that chair and came to a sticky end near the very spot where Archbishop Welby yesterday preached (he mentioned the NHS and social care but admitted it was perfectly ‘proper’ to believe in self-reliance).

When he struck the cathedral door at three o’clock – three solid whacks with his crosier–and was met by teenager Evangeline Kanagasooriam, he replied to her question, ‘With what confidence do you come?’ with the words, ‘I come in weakness and fear and in much trembling’.

And yet he looked pretty composed. Happy even. At the end he gave a little wave to his family as he strode towards his new destiny.

A secularist media, gay marriage, female bishops, Christian persecution: this is a heck of a burden he is undertaking. The Church seems united behind him, for the moment. As he made his way towards the high altar at the start of yesterday’s service he was supported by interventions from episcopal and ecumenical colleagues.

These included a wondrously bearded Greek Orthodox, Archbishop Gregorios. The flower-rota ladies in his church know where to turn their secateurs if they ever run short of gypsophila.

I was moved by the prayers of these colleagues–shades of Simon of Cyrene on Good Friday, or of loved ones urging a dreamer onwards in a vision of Heaven.

The Archdeacon of Canterbury, Sheila Watson, inducted him ‘by divine providence into the possession of the Archbishopric of Canterbury’. Lovely deep voice. Sir Donald Sinden could not have done it better.

A few cracking hymns: When I Survey The Wondrous Cross and The Church’s One Foundation went down best because everyone knew them. There was some foot shuffling during the Punjabi effort. ‘Chosen by the Dean,’ noted BBC2’s Huw Edwards, so we knew who to blame. The organ had been tuned specially for the service and growled like a Porsche.

Thomas Cranmer (it being the anniversary of his death) was mentioned more than once, as was his Prayer Book.

They marred his General Thanksgiving by saying ‘to us and to all’ instead of the more rhythmic ‘to us and to all men’.

And, shudder, there was a long, huggy exchanging of the peace. My late father always used to just say, ‘No thank you’. Archbishop Welby left to applause. Let us pray that it continues.

Justin Welby, newly enthroned Archbishop of Canterbury.

    Such nonsense! It’s no wonder that Camilla laughed. As I’ve said before, England is a mess.

    I went to a party for The Alamo shortly after The State took control of it from the descendents of the men who fought and died there. I was offered home-made fudge… Can you imagine selling fudge on the Arizona?!? But it was the Watusi dancers that made me realize the wheel had turned. I told the person next to me, It`s no longer your Alamo. It`s their Alamo…

    • Old Soldier

      In a few more years The Alamo will be a monument to a great Mexican victory, where the military genius Santa Anna brilliantly defeated the rebellious Texicans with only a 20 to 1 superiority in manpower.

      • bigone4u

        Either that or the anti-white mayor of San Antonio will have it bulldozed in the middle of the night on the pretext that it is an affront to the dignity of Mexico. I live in San Antonio and I don’t think my scenario is that far fetched.

        They are already talking about moving the memorial marker from the street in front of it with the names chisled in marble to an undisclosed location to faciltate a trolley line. I told my spouse, “That`s the excuse…”

      • François

        That version of history probably won’t say that santa Anna and his forces were totally crushed, just a few days after… Long live the Alamo!

    • BannerRWB

      One hundred years ago (or even fifty), if an American had suggested we give the Southwest to Mexico in exchange for them agreeing to never set foot in “White” America, that person would have been shunned from society. Now that Mexico has pretty much taken the Southwest via demographic change, such a trade off may seem more desirable, especially since we stand to lose much more than just the Southwest. I do not look forward to the future of the American Republic/Empire.

      • François

        But, you can’t let them have Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and all those things in California that are so important to America! And what about the all the wealth and the natural ressources in a state like Texas? Kick them out!!!

      Well, the elite sure has. Talk to “commoners” in the streets, especially in the north of England, and you’ll see that not everyone there is crazy. The elite in Britain is especially damaging and they care not for their people or their country.

      I offer:
      Dramatic background: After attending the inaugural ceremonies for the UKGLBTWCPS, HRH Prince Charles is chauffeured directly to Canterbury Cathedral for the official installation of the 102nd Archbishop of Canterbury, the successor to the likes of Thomas a Becket and Thomas Cramner. There, within this stately treasure of the English gothic, where were first inaugurated works by Thomas Tallis, Henry Purcell and George Friedrich Handel, HRH is entertained by a tribe down from London doing one of their ancestral dances, which they accompany with their primal grunts and ceaseless banging on bongos.

  • Mark Hillyard

    I was at a music festival which started out as a Blue Grass Music Festival, over the years those in charge decided we would like some Reggae noise. This black guy and his three “Queens” started his thing and got the white folk stirred up. In his goofy Reggae tone he got the white guys to repeat a refrain which sounded like Yavol, which is German to say Yes Sir, or something like that. He then sang out in his Jamaican Reggae words that sounded very much to me like…”White man stupid, now sing after me…yavol.” The people in the crowd were to stoned or whatever to recognize what was going on and I pointed it out to my buddy and he said, “Eff those eff’n n’s.”
    However no one else was able to hear it or didn’t care.
    I don’t understand why white people fawn over these Africans. What good have they done for the human race?

    • StillModerated

      They stole tap dancing from the Irish. Why do you think they’re called jigs?

    • bigone4u

      What good have they done? They keep the police and the emergency rooms fully employed. Other than that, not much good I can think of.

    • BannerRWB

      You must be a troll, as I find it laughable that anyone would post such a commet on AMREN. Taking that you would be a White person, most White Americans are some part German, even if they don’t realize it. Given the choice of speaking German or having your ethnicity driven to extinction, my bet is that most people (in the Anglosphere anyway) would choose a slight change to their language. Otherwise, as a non-German myself, I place the ethnic Germans at the top of the list as the best set of humans we have. As for our past conflicts, the White world made a huge mistake in WWII, and unless things change, we may end up paying for that mistake with our genocide.

      • Jss

        I thought my sarcasm would be obvious enough. Guess not. And your wrong about most people being willing to change their language or go extinct. Most Whites would likely strangle their own infants if they were told they would be “like the Nazis” if they didnt. Your average White will grovel, bend over, and obey when confronted with words like racism, bigot, etc.

        Not that I’m totally pessimistic. No revolution has ever required “most people” to be aboard. I think sooner rather then latter we will have the numbers enough to make a real difference.

        • The__Bobster

          I got the sarcasm and thought it was hilarious. The Irish are the same way. They will fight the Brits while admitting thousands of Zulus.

          • Felix_M

        • François

          Oh, the Nazi thing again… Never mind that a lot of things that were believed to be true, about Nazi Germany were fabricated falsehoods. And don’t even get me started on Anne Frank and her diary… which was found to have been written, AFTER World War II.

          • saxonsun

            My God, do you mean the Holocaust?! I thought that was real.

          • David Ashton

            I always hope and recommend that AR never gets bogged down in internecine and poorly documented arguments about “the Holocaust”, except in so far as this is abused as a current psychopolitical deterrent to race realism.

            I have read both “Ann Frank’s Diary” and “Germany Must Perish”; I was expected to teach the former as an English class set-book, and actually have a copy of the anti-German booklet. The former publication as published, like a novel, could not have been exactly what the young lady wrote, but I have no reason to question that her diaries in the “annex” were used extensively in its composition; it is not about the concentration camps, where she eventually died (Belsen) or her father survived (Auschwitz). However, I have also read, and when time permits continue to read, more than a few scholarly studies of Nazi policy towards the Jews (and others) during the war, and have also read critiques by Carlo Mattogno and others. The subject is extremely complex.

            My own tentative and briefly stated conclusions, since I remain open to informed correction, may seem incompatible but to my mind fit the facts, are briefly: (1) Hitler and some members of his closest circle had an implicitly Judeocidal ideology; (2) Jews were rounded up and used for wartime industry but some were also killed by shooting, disease (typhus especially) and overwork; (3) serious technical and logistic objections can be raised against the belief in assembly-line mass-gassing on a massive scale in Auschwitz.

            Holocaust revisionists/”deniers” do not satisfactorily address (1) and (2) as notably indicated by Hitler’s statement to Horthy, and the public and private statements by Goebbels; and the orthodox historians have not convincingly refuted (3).

          • David Ashton

            I have since encountered an important study of the origins of Hitler’s intellectual antisemitism by Jan Hornik (see Amazon for details) which should interest race realists of Darwinist outlook. March 25.

          • Katherine McChesney

            ‘..Anne Frank and her diary.’

            That’s an untruth. And I’ve heard the ball point pen argument. Even if it was written in ball point pen, those were invented prior to WWII.

            My sister lives part time in Holland. She goes to the Ann Frank museum whenever she’s there. The story of Ann Frank is a true story. Anti-Semites just like to make up lies to disprove her existance. Holocaust deniers lie just like blacks lie during Black History Month.

          • Wayne

            Don’t be a sucker for the well crafted narrative of mean evil Germans attacking innocent, peaceful Jews. Ever read “Germany Must Perish”? If not, you need to. See what our Kosher friends had in store for the people of Germany. What about the Morganthau Plan?

          • François

            I am not talking about that pen argument. I am talking about what Otto Frank, her father, admitted. Did I say I denied the Holocaust…?

      • George

        This comment encapsulates English humour at its very finest. It’s droll. It’s dry. It’s delightful.

        Having had to deal with the Hun twice last century, and now being a part of a European Union more or less run by Jerry, the English have a natural animosity to the Boche. The passage of time has softened it a bit, but, in England’s finest hour, it was the Germans at their worst.

        Other typical aspects of English culture (and therefore humour) are the convergent themes of ‘muddling through’ and ‘it could be worse’. Proper Englishmen had to sit through a ghastly ceremony. Mind you, it could have been worse. The Africans could, indeed, have been speaking German. So could the English.

        • François

          By the way you wrote “humour”, I guess there is a pretty good chance you are English.

        • Richard from Vancouver

          Perhaps if the English didn’t have “a natural animosity” towards Germany in two world wars caucasian populations wouldn’t be at an all-time low and we would have the numbers to combat non-white aggression. If I had a choice to speak German or to suffer under the whip hand of the black, I’d choose to speak German every time. By the way, the royal family is mostly German anyway, and people should stop confusing Nazis with Germans.

        Not true about most of us being part German–not true at all.

        • David Ashton

          The Saxons and the Anglo-Saxons are genetically related. English is basically a Germanic language with welcome additions from other tongues.
          The two world wars between the English and the Germans were terrible tragedies, and blame falls on the ruling politicians on both sides in each case. Much resentment against Germany in Europe, apart from wartime memories, arises precisely from envy and dislike of the industriousness of Germans. Some of the greatest music and science has come from them.

    In 1521 the Pope gave the title Defender of the Faith to Henry VIII as he was a devoted Catholic. When he turned Protestant Parliament renew the title which had been withdrawn. On the back of all British coins today there are still the letters F.D. Prince Charles, our next king and Governor of the Church of England, has decided, when the time comes, that he wants the title to be Defender of Faiths, all of them. Here you have a sign of things to come….’LONG LIVE our noble Queen’ as the anthem goes. It can only get worse.

    • David Ashton

      Not quite: Defender of Faith (singular), i.e. the spiritual above the material. Anyone reading his statements carefully will see that he is committed to many iconic English things and values. His interest in Muslim Sufism and Architecture is a problematic side issue, but it is outweighed by his other commitments, e.g. our village life, the KJV Bible, the Prayer Book of the Anglican church of which he is a member. One hopes the vision of ludicrous unloveliness, however, at the inauguration of Archbishop Weedy, will warn him against some of the “multi-faith” schemes the closet republicans are hoping will accompany his Coronation.

      • Pat

        I can see the Coronation being something along the lines of the Olympic opening ceremony. You could have a point though about this inauguration being a warning.

        • Pat

          I have been having a trawl around on the internet and it is worse than I thought. Googled Prince Charles defender of all faiths….. from The Telegraph, 13th November, 2008. He is taking the title Defender of Faith to reflect Britain’s multicultural society. He wanted to be Defender of Faiths but it caused controversy in the Anglican Church (not surprised) and he had to compromise with just Faith. A senior source said it was ‘a subtle but hugely symbolic shift’.

          You are right he does support many iconic English things, which is why it is odd that he tries to combine this with the very entities that are destroying them. Maybe he sees the future as well.

    I remember a picture of Obama when he took his family on a presidential visit to west africa. In the photo, the obamas were standing there watching a troupe of african dancers. The men had no shirts and had grass skirts and grass anklets. They were shown in the photo doing some kind of gyration on the ground that looked sort of like break dancing. Both the president’s daughters had a look og horror, disgust and revulsion on their faces. It was so apparent. I remember looking at the photo and thinking, “They’ve been to European nations, perhaps Asian too, and the traditional dances were so much more dignified than half-naked, sweaty men drumming and chanting, and these are ‘their’ people. At Sidwell Friends Private school, the obama kids probably like to think of themselves as being from a dignified heritage. Nope. Just tribal people who live in mud huts. Obama is our first Kenyan-American president. Why doesn’t anyone ever point this out this way?

    On the one hand, at least our new Archbishop isn’t Ugandan born black-as-the-ace-of-spades John Sentamu; on the other hand, I saw Welby being interviewed on Sky a couple of days back and he said that he enjoys watching episodes of West Wing. Nuff said.
    As far as the dancing Africans are concerned, I fear that this is a premonition of things to come – pretty soon, the way things are going, the entire Anglican communion will be brainlessly jumping around like a bunch of pagan Africans. Sad.

    I really don’t know what to say. When I first heard that there may be an African for pope, I was thinking that perhaps it was time to become a Mormon (I am Catholic )but thank God the Vatican did not totally lose its mind. I really can’t take looking at these pictures.

    • ZB

      If you, as a Catholic, are in any way considering Mormonism, then you are poorly instructed in the tenets of your own religion; “Black pope” or not, aside.

        Nope. The msm was pushing for a Black pope back in 2005 when Benedict was elected. The cardinals are conservative and astute. They know that many Catholics, especially American Catholics, will stop donating to the church if it elects a Black pope.

      Mormonism is the probably the most ridiculous fraud religion ever created in history.

      I sincerely hope you are correct, but how do you think this will this happen? Another great war, possibly over resources including land,food and petroleum? Will our economy or societysimply collapse because of the printed money we are using to to pay for it all? Surely there have to be some thinking people out there who can see what is happening and stop it all before it is too late.

      As for the bongo dancer news item, yes I saw it last night, it came at the end of the news bulletin, my attentiveness was nil and the sound was turned off but I instinctively knew what it was all about. My reaction was of total disbelief but at the same time not the least bit surprised. The reaction from my wife was also that of total disgust and she remarked that at least the new Pope is a great man who honors and respects his church and it’s beliefs. I also thought I saw a Muslim cleric among the attendees??

      It was also interesting to note that our conservative Archbishop of Sydney appeared to distance himself from what happens at Canterbury.

      • gemjunior

        There’s plenty of land, food and petroleum in Africa, just nobody there who has the ingenuity to extract it while keeping the various dictators and savage revolutionary leaders from grabbing at the money without any concern for the people. What they need to do is bring is consultants from the west to set up shop and teach some way of how a corporation runs to the people, who will hopefully realize the financial benefits without it disappearing into some scumbag or overlord’s pocket. Also, the place could benefit from some westerners as consultants for how to run government, civics, municipalities, infrastructures, etc. and teach the people how to do it. Why don’t the Africans who’ve been to the west go back and teach these methods there so their countries might benefit from the supposed returns of the brain drains who left 20-30 years ago? They surely don’t want whites doing anything to help them, that’s for sure. As we’ve seen, they’d rather have a famine than allow white farmers in Zimbabwe and South Africa to provide food. Cutting their noses off to spite their faces is better than admitting that whites are better farmers, and better administrators, and better at governing. All through evolution in crowded places – so they developed the knack. The wealthy Africans should be going home to help their people. When Irish people emigrated to the USA, Australia, Canada, even England – it was well known that a large part of their salaries went back to Ireland for their extended families as well as their parents.

        As a student of history, I believe that this disease will end within a few generations (along with the American Empire which has made it possible), but by then the West will be permanently scarred. Nations like England and France will be the center of much conflict and suffering, though I pray Generation Identitaire is successful (Bonne chance mes amis..).

        The finite characteristic of the resources our society depends on will surely change our culture and future. The raceless ultra-advanced future is unlikely (A Bosnia scenario is much more probable), at least for now. Oil shortages, food shortages, climate chaos, soil exhaustion, and over all problems relating to diversity will cripple multiculturalism before it is even out of the cradle.

        This may be what saves our race. One only has to look to Greece, where a full blown depression is what it took to make them wake up. Italy, Germany, Austria, etc are all starting to follow in Greece’s footsteps (there is a poetic beauty to that, is there not? The cradle of Western civilization is leading in the preservation of it).

    I used to be a member of this church, but I quit. As you can see by the photo, the Anglican Church is a joke.This celebration looks like something one would see on South Park. I expect to see photos of the Galgamek delegation with the Queen Spider, as well.

    I once saw photos of a really beautiful Anglican church. The priest was black, celebrating Martin Luther King Day..a “celebration of freedom”. He was followed by a group of happy white liberals, dressed in their choir gowns. I could not decipher the males from the females. I would have liked to attend the service and asked them, “should we remember the 50,000 white females who were raped by black men this year?” Their vacant, braindead smiles would have turned into looks of horror, and their heads would have exploded. I’m sorry, after becoming a race realist, I just can’t take these churches seriously anymore. The English should be planning a revolution to take their country back. They do not have time to bang on bongo drums with people who are destroying our countries.

    • refocus

      The majority of the English people I have met can not describe the difference in the appearance between a Bantu and a Nordic.

      England is completely finished.

      • Tired

        They can, they are just so heavily brainwashed they suppress it. The English often do not even refer to them as races but instead “complexions”. I pointed out if you powdered every African to the point of whiteness, they’d still look like Africans. They claim not to see race though we all know they are lying. Holding onto a delusion they know is just that.

        However, I know a handful of elderly British that moved to my Midwestern community when they were young. They are not blind to race and are often more racist than Americans. This disease is a recently contracted one.

        The England of Beowulf and Queen Victoria will not be recovered. Eastern and Southern Europe are far more promising when it comes to the preservation of our people.

        I would not be surprised if England goes much the way of South Africa or Rhodesia. I can see white refugees fleeing countries such as England for whiter nations like Russia or, god willing, Germany.

        • Pat

  • Tired

    The last photo represents the photo perfectly, just perfectly. A set of black men in primitive clothing with primitive brains, amidst the statuary and architecture of our ancestors, a product of literally thousands of years of sweat, blood, and tears. They do not look like dancers partaking in a celebration, but rather victors of a battle they are too ignorant to even understand. Does this not strike anger into the heart of every European? Our history is being desecrated, our architecture and art is being soiled! Is there no respect?

    This is exactly why I am a student of the classical arts. We must preserve the skills needed to build beautiful buildings and create beautiful art, for once our race regains its wits, I doubt much of this art will survive.

    Mainstream Christianity (including Catholicism) has turned against us. They hold no loyalty to the Western world or the race that established it. They have declined so much that this is a pathetic last attempt to gain some sort of influence. I myself am agnostic, but I hope and dream that one day these cathedrals and churches with all their relics and art will fall back into the hands of white race realist Christians, the true owners of such beauty.

    • KingKenton

      Amen…

    • Oom Paul

      I would just disagree with one point. It is not Christianity that turned against us, it is the church. It is not the religion, but the institutions. In the same way education is not bad but the institutions, the public schools, have been corrupted.

      The Afrikaner people used to believe that it is God’s will that we survive as a people, and used to celebrate “The day of the vow”. Religion was a unifying force. In the last few decades however, the attitude of the church has changed. I think the churches are the problem not the religion.

      • Tired

        That is what I meant. Thank you for clearing that up. White race realists Christians are quick to point out that the Bible forbids the mixing of races. One only has to remember the story of Noah’s drunkenness.

        • Oom Paul

          You are correct that no one could know how God works. What I meant was that the people had the belief that God wanted them to survive. Whether or not this was truly God’s will, we could never know, like you said.

    Away back in the nineteenth century, there was controversy over whether the Anglican church should undertake missionary activity in British colonies There were, of course, those who were enthusiastic evangelists; there were also some who opposed it, on various grounds ranging from “respect” for native traditions to the expense and likely futility of the effort. Amidst this, a wag (who was also an Anglican bishop) wrote:

    “If I were a cassowary
    On the plains of Timbuctoo,
    I’d surely eat a missionary,
    Cassock, bands, and hymn-book too!”

    If the exhibition here is the present result of a century of Anglican missionary activity in Africa, it is a pity that there weren’t more cassowaries.

    That Her Grace the Duchess of Cornwall could not sit through it with a straight face makes me like her. This is why she is always given such a bad press, like her father in law Prince Philip.

      Really? You enjoy the mockery of this “dancing” in one of the most majestic, traditional, historic cathedrals in Europe? The continent of Europe is, by the way, home to a particular race of people, as the continent of Africa is home to a race of its own. No matter what the governing elites are doing to the country, the majority of the real people don’t want transfers from one continent to another. Especially since the transfers are usually from Africa to Europe. You don’t belong here. The European continent is alien to you because you did not evolve here, nor did you assist in building this continent, ever – or participate in its growth in any way. All your people have done since they first set foot in Europe is to destroy, tear down, and lower every standard of living we had. Built over 2,000 years, it’s taken about 60 years for your countrymen to rampage across, destroying so much of towns that stood for centuries. To finally see the back of yous will be a blessed day.

        Even replying to the “African Immigrant” is a waste of time. He is gloating, and rightfully so, over the destruction of the UK, and Europe, without a single shot being fired. He can not wait for the day when England looks like Nigeria. When society devolves to his primitive level.

        The Blacks are doing the same in North America, but let’s make something crystal clear: they are doing it, because they have been allowed by our so-called elites to do so. It is not too late, I think, to do something about it.

        • Tired

          It would not take long. When Africans meet the slightest bit of resistance to their actions they turn and flee. They are quite cowardice as a group. Like children who throw rocks at the weak but are nowhere to be seen when the weak throw rocks back. They only fight when they know they will win. No bravery, no honor.

          It would take very little pressure to reverse the trends.

          It was a heathen dance therefore it was blasphemous and a disgrace to Christianity.

      But why, if I may ask? If the new archbishop had been the first Black Archbishop of Canterbury, it might have been more appropriate, but in this case, what was that all about?

        The ceremony demonstrates the ever growing multicultural and global identity that is becoming commonplace in England, Great Britain and all throughout Europe.

        • François

          Thank you for your answer.

          But you see, A. I,, there are immigrants living in Britain, from all over the planet, right? So why traditional African dances, and not a Chinese Dragon Dance? Or an American Indian ceremony?

          That’s one of the reasons why I disagree with multiculturalism: there are too many existing cultures, for one officially multicultural country to adapt to all of them, trying to make them equally represented in its public space.

        • David Ashton

          It pains me to add this because you are an educated and decent fellow, but the actual visual impact of this tribal knees-up was subliminally counter-productive by contrast with its surroundings: the facial expressions, the movements, the costumes, the noises. It pains me still more to add this comment in my hearing from one observer, but it is salutary to quote it: “It reminds me of the chimpanzee’s tea party at the Regent’s Park Zoo.”

        “i derseve to live here as much as anyone else.” – Absolutely not. The genocide of Europeans is being committed, and you are guilty, and it doesn’t matter if you pay taxes and lead a clean life. In my view, the fact that you are an African in Europe makes you guilty. Similarly, in my view, Europeans are the ones mainly (Africans provided assistance as soon as they were able) guilty of committing genocide against multiple tribes of native “Americans”. The question I would ask our world leaders would be: “When does the genocide end?”, or more appropriately, now that we understand that the movement of peoples into their non-native lands brings about genocide, when do we halt such movement? Since, obviously, none of our leaders even mention such action, we will continue to drive straight into our next great conflict.

        • GM (Australia)

          Yes, there is a lot of creeping PC in all the “revised” Church hymnals and orders of service. This particular hymn was written by Sir Arthur Sullivan of G & S fame so perhaps the do-gooders are trying to reduce it all to some sort of comic opera.

    The “English” need to save themselves some time and just convert Canterbury and Salisbury Cathedrals to mosques. They are not really using them for anything. Then, have a huge ceremony, they can burn the Magna Carta , St. George’s flag, the Union Jack, abolish royalty, convert all castles to madrassas, miscegenate with the Africans and Asians, and watch the sun set forever on the British Empire.

    3. The unabashed warmongering ( let me get this straight pastor I and my kin should die for this regimes wars of aggression? Why aren’t your kids in the military? better yet LEAD BY EXAMPLE yourself and join the IDF!

            Once Elizabeth II passes, and after a period of mourning, the Muslims and blacks will start pressing for a republic since the Windsors are not representative of Britain’s rich diversity. The republicans will join in, not realizing, or not caring, that more is at stake than just whether or not the head of state is elected or hereditary. Charles will be your last King, and with him all your traditions, your culture, and ultimately your people. It is sad but the end game is clear, and not just for the UK, but all of Europe.

    Ah, the Anglican church has long since past the point where it has any shred of Christianity remaining

  • There is no doubt about it. The British, or at least the institutions, have gone certifiably insane. Myself, I have become numbed to this kind of caper. I have seen too many acts of insanity to warrant any sort of mental register that I should be expecting anything sane to occur.

    Not that Islam is particularly a main focus of mine, but there was another article a few days ago describing how an (immigrant sounding) vicar or other church representative had felt “compassion” for the Muslims in and outside the mosque next door, which is so filled to the brim with these racial and religious foreigners that they cannot fit all the worshippers in and thus spill out and start praying all over the pavements and whatever in the cold.

    So, this clown invites them to pray in the church – and I think I heard that there is an extension being built on the church to help cope with capacities. It was the “Christian thing to do” apparently!

    It is like holding a knife up to your own religions neck and asking where it should be sliced. It is of course, insanity. Insanity instigated by yet another foreigner, it would seem, to boot. Not that our lot are any different.

    Then there is the missing 400,000 infant school places, as we cannot cope with the demand brought about by a “rise in the birthrate” and a “population boom”. Of course, it was left unmentioned who had been having these children, and what nationalities this “population boom” had arisen from and why they are here in the first place.

    Of course, it is hardly about “school places”. The more pressing matter is that demographically speaking this country is completely finished unless something particularly radical starts to happen, or (albeit wishful thinking) that times get so bad that they all flee like rats deserting a ship.

    Nothing in this country makes sense – nothing at all. It is a complete and utter madhouse. It seems to be filled with insane people that either do not realise they are mad, or who are wardens for the madhouse, who love their work so much they want more people to be mad too, so they continue to engineer a mad society.

    There was once a quip about Britain, I cannot remember who first phrased it, but they said that this place was the largest open air prison. Perhaps it would be more apt to describe it as the worlds largest open air mental asylum for the clinically suicidal.

      The problem with her laughing is is that the Royal family is supposed to be neutral in all things. Of course she wasn’t raised a Royal, and despite all the criticism of her she seems to do a good a job in her role as the Prince’s consort, but laughing is a no no. Of course laughing is better than vomiting at such a spectacle.

        Neutral? What good are they then if they remain “neutral” while Zulus dance around like apes at Cantebury of all places???? Are they to remain neutral as the country is taken over by third world savages? Perhaps it is BECAUSE they have remained neutral all these years that the once great country had gone to hell! Royalty has a duty to protect the country and its (native) people from moral, spiritual, and cultural decline. This fits the bill! A laugh speaks volumes!!!

        • Pat

          The Queen is Head of State she plays no role at all in what Parliament gets up to. If the monarchy were seen to be meddling in a democratically elected Parliament it would be the end of them. Since 1688 their power has been increasingly limited. They are a constitutional monarchy, with little authority. Very difficult to explain to someone from a different system. Personally, good or bad, I see them as a source of continuity in an increasingly changing world.

            Though I agree with you that her powers are, in effect, very limited, she has a voice as head of state. Heads of state, even powerless ones, can have a major influence on politics, if they speak out and use what little power they have. I am not suggesting that she interfere in parliament directly, but she could speak out, get the people behind her, and instigate change. If I recall correctly, she forced Thatcher to back down on her opposition to sanctions against South Africa, not exactly “staying out of politics” so to speak. Nevetheless, on paper, at least, she has some power…with some strategy, and an iron will, she could make that “paper” power into something real!

    This is cultural desecration. I’m not particularly religious, but Jesus wept, and God help us.

    These bastards are insane!

    Don’t be angry at her.
    She thought they were filming an episode of Soul Train?

  • The same church brought South Africa Trevor Huddlestone, the pedophile, who taught Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, and Oliver Tambo. Huddlestone smuggled weapons with the knowledge of the royals to aid the black ANC terrorists to take over a white well-run, rich and orderly country. These people deserve to burn in hell. They deserve what is coming to them

    Seems every so often, one of the local news channels has to show a video clip of services in local Black churches. Watching these creatures gyrating, clapping and carrying on — is enough to evoke endless laughter.

    Anyone recall those articles in Amren in the past — Bemoaning the reality churches almost always are the most segregated institutions in our country? Looking at those ridiculous antics in Black churches certainly explains WHY.

    Never really knew much about her, but I do now have a reason to like Camilla. That should have been the reaction of everyone in the room. Hey, by the way, isn’t that a reminder and glorification of the old Days of Empire? (Maybe only if they had been Hindus).
