Never Forget, Never Surrender, Ever

Do you know what would hold me together on a battlefield? The sense that I was perpetuating the language in which Keats and the rest of them wrote!

- Wilfred Owen

As we remember the dead of two world wars, we in the nation for which they fought and died, can only watch in grim, enraged silence, as the usual parade of "leaders" shed their annual quota of crocodile tears at Westminster Abbey. But meanwhile, out here in the real world, as the Lisbon Treaty cleared its final hurdle and achieved full ratification by the full 27-member block of European "nations", the final stages of preparations for the handover of British sovereignty to the continental dictatorship against which they gave their lives fighting, are being made in plain view of the entire world.

Only yesterday, on the eve of this tragic and solemn day of national mourning, the nest of Fabian traitors in Westminster, under the sponsorship of the Hansard Society (little more than a thinly disguised branch of the LSE), were so brazen as to hold a farcical and utterly delphic "debate" on the "winners and losers" of Constitutional Reform. In a fatuous two hour "discussion" on the last 10 years of Constitutional Reform in UK, not one mention was made of the Lisbon Treaty, which de facto replaces the British Constitution, making any further debate and discussion on reform of said constitution an exercise in total futility.

This is not a mistake. The panel knew full well that the "reforms" they continue to try to ram through our Parliament, are designed to facilitate the transfer of power from Westminster to the unelected EU Dictatorship, via regional bodies and the quangocracy that do their dirty work. All this talk of "devolving power" down to local councils is nothing more than code speak for the "post democratic" Common Purpose takeover of the decision making that was formerly the province of central government.

After the formal proceedings were finished, we lingered in the corridor with the intent of confronting one or more of the panel members with some hard facts. As it happened, I was able to speak directly to Sir George Young, Shadow Leader of the House of Commons. After pointing out that the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty effectively nullified the British Constitution, he appeared distinctly uncomfortable and could only muster the remark that "his party had robustly argued for a Referendum on the issue" and that their policy on the subject was "on their website". Well all I can say is that it is mighty comforting, in view of the greatest political crisis this country has ever faced, that our opposition party cannot even find the courage to break the taboo on these matters in a public debate, in the "mother of Parliaments". Are we ruled by imbeciles, or just cowards? Either way, they are a disgrace to the courageous men and women of generations past that we honour today.

But, they are not alone in their cowardice are they? To quote Shakespeare, "The Fault, Dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings".

And so, as we sound the last post for Democracy in Great Britain, and Europe itself, will the British people finally rise up from their long slumber and say NO to this incremental conspiracy that has lulled us in its Fabian embrace? It is now down to us, each and every one of us, to draw the line in the sand, and summon forth the spirit of great leaders past, for as we were once darkly warned:

If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.
