Much discussion of libertarianism revolves, in one fashion or another, around the English Common Law and England’s cultural traditions. England is the home of liberty (it is quite incorrect to claim, as the US president George W. Bush did, that America is “freedom’s home”, other than in the sense that America is an Anglo-Saxon nation—an identity specifically rejected by another US president, Woodrow Wilson). Consequently, there is a continuum of thought in libertarian circles between those who wish to see minimal government with little reference to the cultural basis for it—I believe this would lead to the minarchism of Mogadishu, Somalia, one of the few fully libertarian societies of the present day—and those conservatives who want to see England’s traditions of small government restored and all the rights and liberties traditionally accorded to Englishmen honoured and upheld by Crown, Parliament and Her Majesty’s Courts of Justice.

The Church of England has finally begun to notice that the EU is a large pile of dog excrement, albeit a very clever and malicious pile of dog excrement. The Church attacked them on multiple fronts, both financially and politically, saying that “millions of pounds of public funds risk being wasted on redevelopment projects unless local people and religious groups are also involved to bring about spiritual regeneration” and that “The European institutional public sphere is largely a public discourse for elites, it is a sphere in which citizens remain uninvolved. This has in turn contributed to the EU’s democratic deficit.”
It’s nice that people are beginning to wake up to this sham of a “Union”, although I fear that the Churches will be found guilty of made up crime and shut down because they dared to speak out against this bureaucratic dictatorship “Economic Friendship”
The Asse-Hat is going to go along with his socialist masters in government on this one, we can all now see.
I will decide what to think in a day or so. This is all blowing up correctly while everyone is out shopping in Woolworth’s, so that nobody will notice.
Perhaps the English cathedrals will be razed after that, and the land used for “affordable housing”. Just think what fun it would be for the builder-chaps in their jolly little plastic hats, to go at the windows with a wrecking-ball.
