With pomp, pageantry and ceremony rarely surpassed anywhere in the world, Prince William and Catherine Middleton have celebrated their marriage at Westminster Abbey. This blog wishes the Royal newlyweds a happy life together blessed with love.
The eyes of hundreds of millions of people from around the world have fixed themselves on London to witness the kind of event that just doesn’t happen with anything like such majesty anywhere else.
For the United Kingdom is in decline. Our influence and place in the world has been reduced by people who see virtue in mediocrity and shame in success. Governance of the Realm has been surrendered to bureaucrats overseas in Brussels. Our strength, economically, commercially and militarily has been purposely undermined. The politicians, rather than preside over improvement and enhancement in the life of all Britons, seek to level downwards and jettison the things that made this country great. The can-do attitude and yearning to go further, do better and achieve more has been eroded by people who compensate for their lack of substance by mocking those who hold such sentiments. Those who have secured a place in life, rather than encourage others to do the same, all too often seek to draw up the drawbridge to deny the opportunities they enjoyed being extended to others. These are just some of the problems from which the Royal Family have been largely insulated but have degraded this nation.
If only one day a change could take place in this country that would make us as proud of it as so many people were of the occasion observed by the world today. That would be a real cause for celebration, flag waving and a sense of national pride.
