Jerusalem LIes In Ruins

Posted originally at Cranmer; Crossposted at Tasty Infidelicacies.

H/T Cranmer: 

The Archbishop hopefully won't mind if I post the whole sordid thing over here.  In addition, I have added a good Youtube version of Jerusalem. From what heights England has fallen. It's culture is in ruins, it's people lost, and  hungry devouring wolves inside the sheepfold. I pray, England, that you may, with God's help, find your way out of this darkness and become,  once more a Shining City on a Hill.




'Made in England' - the BBC's 'alternative national anthem'
This is Boris out and about in London today, celebrating St George and England's national day. Please enjoy it. Be enthused, uplifted and edified by it. For Cranmer is about to depress and distress you utterly.

Believe it or not, the BBC (ie taxpayers) and the Arts Council of England (ie taxpayers) have forked out for a brand new national anthem for England. Forget 'Land of Hope and Glory' and set aside 'Jerusalem'. For the BBC and the Arts Council commissioned Sam Dunkley to compose 'Made in England'.

Here are the truly inspirational lyrics. If anyone can find a link to the performance of this important composition, please let Cranmer know and he shall post it:

New alternative national anthem

I am England, England is inside of me.
I am England, England is what I want her to be,
I am England, I am English, I am England to my core,
And wherever you may find me, you'll find England.
England Forever More!
England, my England, she never lets me down,
Hustle bustle, urban tussle, dancing through the crowds,
Or out in the country, a fresh place for me to breathe,
England my England is always home to me!
Fish and chips in paper, with mushy peas,
Balti chicken, naan bread and onion bhajis,
A cup of tea and toast, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding,
Tastes of our culture, tastes like England to me!

Swing low sweet chariot, God Save The Queen!
Land of hope and glory and of pleasant mountains green,
England's future, past and today live in our minds on St George's Day,

England, England, my country!

Can you believe it?

What a lyrical genius to come up with ‘Fish and chips in paper with mushy peas.

Balti chicken with naan bread and onion bhajis.’

This is a requiem to New Labour's New Britain. It is utterly banal.


This is MUCH better,  Archbishop!

Try not to vomit up all those mushy peas and onion bhajis.  I am NOT cleaning it up! Here is the link to that wretched piece of choral flotsam. I hope the BBC is roundly ridiculed for foisting this upon the taxpayers who paid for it. 

New Labour Delenda Est!

Barbarians through the gates.

Another dark age is upon us, I fear.

Who will preserve the manuscripts this time?

I'll not give up on England---If I do - I'd have to give up on us in the US...
We have the likes of the NEA (art? =taxpayer funded) that gave us "PISS Christ"...and many more debauched art forms---
I see signs that 'Englanders' are standing up---
Luckily- we in the US have not given up our guns-


Eigtheen years ago we went to England-and visited the fabulous Oxford church...during service - the attendees were asked to commune at the alter rail,,,when the clergyman saw my son (8 yrs at the time) a smile of such joy swept his face and he came knelt down and touched my child's head--It was then that we realized that there were NO OTHER CHILDREN at the service...
Conclusion....as to why England has lost her way?.....

So... If England has a new national anthem, will Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland be coming up with new ones, too?

The most destructive force in the UK is the BBC. They are forcing the multiculturalism on the British because they're funded by the United Nations.
