Theodore Dalrymple's recorded talk - 'Disdain of the Past' - at the 'Another Country - is there a future for Tradition?' Conference - organised by the Traditional Britain Group and the Quarterly Review.
We know that England is under attack, and from its own ruling class. Before we can speak of defense, we need to understand the reasons for the attack. This is not an attack on tradition in itself, but the unfolding of an alternative tradition.
Peter Myers - The role of the established church in making and renewing the greatness of traditional Britain. 'I’d like to begin by thanking Louis and the committee for inviting Church Society to contribute to your conference today. For those of you who haven’t heard of us, Church Society is the direct descendent of over a dozen Protestant organisations set up to protect the Biblical faith of the Church of England.'
"America has more in common with Britain, in general, and England, in particular,
than with any other nation. And yet, when I travel here, I'm reminded of the power of
national and differences, particularly when it come to something I'll be talking about
On Saturday 20th October 2012 the Traditional Britain Group, in conjunction with The Quarterly Review, held a very successful all-day conference at London’s prestigious East India Club. A broad range of age groups with at least one third under 30 years of age made up the 80 attendees.
A talk given by Dr Frank Ellis at The Traditional Britain Group's Enoch Powell Centenary Dinner - 16th June 2012. 'In this lecture/article I examine what I consider to be the war being waged against England. There are in fact two wars being waged against the English: one is a war similar in aim though not as murderous in scope (yet) to that being waged against the Boers in South Africa and directed, for the time being, primarily at displacing whites from the large council estates in the big cities (council estates are broadly analogous to Section 8 housing in the USA) or rendering them fragmented, inert and willing to accept their fate as a racial minority in their ancestral lands. The violence used against whites in these housing concentrations is random, spontaneous and unplanned and has all the hallmarks of its being no more than crimes against the person and property. Yet crimes against persons and property pursued for purposes of material gain are also consistent with being committed for racial or ideological reasons. Killing a person for his race does not preclude stealing his wallet. The 2011 August riots and murder which blighted London and other English cities are a prime example of what I have in mind. These attacks start not because government agencies, especially the police, actively support them, but because they fail to take the necessary measures to prevent the attacks and then to deal with them when they occur. The other war is an ideological war being waged among the professions and by the professions. This war is aimed at the cultural, political, national, economic and legal destruction of England. The striking thing about both these wars is that they are not being prosecuted by the agents and soldiers of an occupying force, as would have been the case in 1940 had we succumbed to Nazi invasion. The most active persecutors of the English are not African or Pakistani immigrants but their fellow Englishmen and Englishwomen: the police; the social services; a corrupt and cowardly teaching profession; politicians and whole swathes of business.'
Gerard Batten, UKIP MEP, spoke to the Traditional Britain Group at their annual Traditional Britain Dinner at Charing Cross Hotel, London. Gregory Lauder-Frost, Vice-President of the TBG presided. Gerard Batten gave an informative talk addressing the numerous attacks on the British Constitution, laws and ancient institutions, especially from the European Union and Westminster itself. The evening was enjoyed by all and as always the majority of the guests were under 30, an encouraging direction for the traditionalist movement.
