Ye Madcaps Of England

entry picture

England is Britain's last colony

But we English are an awkward lot

We like to make our own decisions

And not delegate to Westminster

Or to the EU. When we watch our

Politicians prevaricate when we've

Told them exactly what to do:

Leave the EU! Then our long fuse

Starts to burn ever-so slowly

And our long memories surface too.

The first country in Europe

To execute a king for treason

On January 30 1649

Charles I was beheaded

In London.

Our minnow-politicians

Would do well to remember

Charles' fate.

Before it's too late.


◄ All that love can do

No woman is an island ►

Ah...a timely voice for the English. We are a patient breed but
do not take kindly to being deceived or talked down to by those
given power over us. It is probably right to presume that the overwhelming vote to leave the EU (Brexit) came from the shires
of England, with added support from sympathetic factions elsewhere
in the UK. The metropolitan zones are comprised of many different
sorts without the same origins and obdurate resistance to being
taken for a ride to a disguised destination in the hands of others. Once, I wrote to
Kenneth Clarke MP - well known EU advocate, reminding him of the words of
Gilbert Keith Chesterton: "We are the English people and we haven't spoken yet...".
And that was many years before the
recent referendum.

Dogs would do well to not wake a sleeping bear just as the shepherd would as well.
