Political Correctness has now also totally corrupted debate in modern Britain and when the Church of England Synod rightly voted against the heresy of Women Bishops this week the leader of the non-Conservative Party railed against those who stood up for classic Christian doctrine and told them to "get with the programme". That is the programme of The Left, of course.
The BBC really thinks that just by swapping around its 'management' that this will make a difference. It will not. The BBC is an institutionally left-wing, moralising (but without morality) publicly-funded disgrace. Their journalism is no different from that of The Guardian (which it constantly cites) or The Independent, or indeed The Times - all of whose journalists just dash off whatever rumour or prejudice they have - thinking that because such-and-such is a Tory, or a right-winger etc they are fair game.
On Saturday 19th October 2013 the Traditional Britain Group held its annual conference. e event, which attracted around a hundred attendees, was described by all we spoke to as "marvellous", "brilliant" and a huge success.
English Law is based firmly on aspects of common law (inherited from the Anglo-Saxons), feudal law (inherited from the Normans) and subsequent laws which have been passed through parliament and which can, therefore, be repealed in the same way they had been passed. They are not written in stone. Our judges are guided by these laws and legislation. A judge has some room for manoevre to work within the laws before him using precedence, custom and conventions. That said, sadly we have seen more political judgements in Britain or should I say judgements affected by politics, since 1945, than ever before.
We often hear the phrase that we should learn from history or we shall repeat it. There is much in this. Since the 1960s our society has been overtaken by liberalism and socialism, both ultimately destructive forces. The first a form of anarchy, an anything goes philosophy, the second grounded in the French Revolution and ultimately Marx, the dual objectives being the abolition of the historical established society and all the institutions which form part of it.
Are you one of those people who remember when The Daily Telegraph was owned by Viscount Camrose and the Berry family? The days when it was objective, traditional, and had brilliant journalists writing for it, when common left-wing smears were a taboo and left to the tabloids? Do you remember when it boasted a circulation of over 1,000,000 daily? Today it is half that.
As usual the leftists at the BBC get this wrong. You can come from a stable family background and still feel lonely; be married with children and still feel lonely. Loneliness is a complex business and can be caused by any number of factors and the same hat does not fit all people.
Christianity and the Millennium revisited by Gregory Lauder-Frost. We were once told that the basis of our laws, our culture, indeed our entire civilisation, was Christianity. We were, it was taught, a Christian Kingdom and part of the Christian World. Our children were baptised into “the one true faith” and brought up to believe that the Holy Scriptures were the Word of God.
On June 16th the Traditional Britain Group is to hold the Enoch Powell Centenary Dinner, to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of almost certainly Britain’s greatest and most acclaimed politician of the post-war era. He is best known for his fervent and constant opposition to mass immigration which he referred to as a nation erecting its own funeral pyre. He was also implacably opposed to the European Union. He believed that Parliament was a place to “voice grievance, to demand that wrong be out right” and not a place for careerists.
