Three Cheers For The Wedding and Best Wishes To Kate and William

Like many other males, I was kind of boxed into watching the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William last night, and you know what? I didn’t mind it. Because as I watched it, I realised that even though the organizers probably didn’t plan it that way, it became a celebration of something great that has long been lost.

What we saw was the old and traditional UK. The pomp and circumstance, the European religious trappings, the beauty of old buildings, a glimpse of the old empire, the graceful and good natured society that once typified Britain.

The Spitfires and the Lancaster flew over, and reminded me that even though we now had better aeroplanes, we were a long way from the pinnacle of UK society that built and flew those planes and defeated a totalitarian dictator that sought to rule the world. It was an extremely pleasant and decent event, and best wishes to Kate and William.

  1. I only watched the main 10 minutes of the ceremony, but agree with RB. Quite moving.

    Couldn’t help thinking that there will probably be some whining by leftists about the obvious ‘lack of (ethnic) diversity’ at the event….lol

  3. Glad to see the camera’s avoided Elton John. He had to get his big act in and go to press saying he would not perform at the wedding. How tacky it would have been.

  4. It symbolically puts the Republicans in Australia back another decade.
    The fear that a bogan matey or an ideologically correct functionary from an ‘oppressed’ identity group would eventually slide into an Australian President’s seat goes away for a bit longer.

  5. I was caught by the press-gang this morning and had to watch the ‘highlights’ on the morning news (‘Come on honey, it’s a once(or twice)-in-a-lifetime thing) and I do have to confess Red, that seeing the pageantry and watching the fly-over go me to wondering how it’s possible a nation once so proud and successful that it literally ruled the world, could in the space of a mere half-century have capitulated so completely as to be the shameful, embarrassing shadow of itself we see today.

    Thank you to the triplet evils of leftism, multi-culturalism and dhimmitude. You have successfully destroyed what was once the most successful nation on the planet. And you have taken down those other countries over which she once ruled.

  6. Same situation here, Red – Had to sit through it as well, and found it a strangely captivating, almost voyeuristic experience, but at the same time very toe-cringing. Absolute asinine, sycophantic commentary (I watched some English stream), loaded with utter BS and conveniently avoiding anything even remotely negative. Had the same emotion as you, that it gave an insight into an English culture that once was and now only exists at the margins. Noted in the crowds as well how a truly integrated culture can look. There were many non-Caucasian spectators, all merrily integrated into a crowd that was celebrating togetherness and the value of tradition, rather than multi-multiculturalism and division. I hope politicians and imbecile leftists had a good look at what a happy populace looks like. It involves people who consider their differences secondary to their interests and objectives and who do not make their diversity to their primary characteristics through which they observe the world and themselves.
    I found it interesting that Blair and Brown had not been invited, there is perhaps a sign in that. I am not a lover of the monarchy at all, in fact I almost fell of the couch laughing when they showed that mini-buses are now required to ferry the troughers and their brood to this event.

  9. Wasn’t the British Empire a bit ‘totalitarian’, though? No votes in the colonies. Democracy should have prevailed (eg in India). That way the Commwealth would be a genuine federation – countries needn’t have broken away from Britain, they could be British and elect their own representatives.

  10. Agree with you though about how it was good not to see a PC focus on the ‘ethnics’. Britain is WHITE country. Others are guests only. This ought always to have been a WHITE event. It is sickening how many non-whites are in the British parliament because of PC policies. They should be going home to their colonies and helping democracy there.

  11. Blair and Brown not invited cos they are not members of the Ordre of the Garter.Honi Soit Qui Mal y Pense.
    I love the way dumbarse media are making something out of this.If I know that then why don’t they ?
    Their rubbish opinions and speculation is just that. Anyway ,who’d want them at their wedding ? Those 2 hate traditional Britain and did their best to break it and bring it to it’s knees.
    British Empire totalitarian? Certainly not. The greatest countries and democracies in the world owe their democracy and freedoms to their British history.
    Australia,NZ,Canada and yes the USA.All Anglo Saxon in tradition and heritage.

    God Save the Queen.

  12. ‘British Empire totalitarian? Certainly not.’

    I am just saying that the Brits should have allowed Indians to elect representatives and make a government. That would have staved off the independence movement. India is a proud and ancient civilisation and was capable of electing its own reps. But for more than hundred years when they controleld India Britain never let the people vote. Viceroys were appointed from London. All were white. Whilst I believe whites have to be credited with creating civlisation peoples like the Indians deserved the right to democracy. They could have stayed in the Empire and elected their own reps. Only in the settler colonies the US Aussie NZ etc did people get a vote. In the non-white colonies eg India and Kenya the natives were never allowed to vote or even form political parties. That most certainly I do call totalitarian. If a NZ government banned elections and political parties I would call it totalitarian. If the British Empire had democratised it could still exist. Of course when I talk of democracy I am talking mostly of civilised peoples like the Indians not barbarians like the Maoris.

    (Which, to raise a serious point, invites the question: so where were all the “British Muslims”?)
