Changing face of Australia revealed in new Palace documents

Sir John Kerr (above right) with the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh

The well-financed republican campaign in Australia – whose backers include former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull and billionaire media magnate Rupert Murdoch – is busy propagandising today, after the release of hundreds of letters from the mid-1970s between the then Governor-General Sir John Kerr (the Queen’s representative in Australia) and Sir Martin Charteris, then the Queen’s Private Secretary.

Their objective has been to find a ‘smoking gun’ proving that Buckingham Palace had prior knowledge of Sir John Kerr’s decision to dismiss Australia’s left-wing prime minister Gough Whitlam during the 1975 constitutional crisis.

This morning’s release at the National Archives of Australia is a vast trove of documents, and the Whitlam saga is too complex to discuss in full here, but at first glance there are two aspects of immediate interest to H&D readers.

In June 1976 Sir John and Lady Kerr were confronted by a mob of 400 far-left demonstrators in Melbourne – mainly Maoist students and militant trade unionists – after the Governor-General and his wife had arrived for official celebrations of Commonwealth Day.

A brick smashed the front window of Sir John’s Rolls-Royce and one of his officials suffered facial cuts requiring hospital treatment.

Eric Butler, founder of the League of Rights, was a prominent pro-Monarchy campaigner and opponent of international communist subversion.

In his report to Buckingham Palace on the incident, Sir John mentioned that many others were rallying to his and the monarchy’s support:
“A very right-wing organisation has taken up my cause – the League of Rights. It is issuing great numbers of pamphlets and placing advertisements. The sort of things it is saying are true enough… Eric Butler who is the leader of the organisation is said to be racist and anti-semitic but these things are not stressed in his organisation. I enclose an ASIO [Australia’s MI5] report on his organisation. It is very pro-Monarchy. He may be cashing in on my position and The Queen’s visit.”

Other correspondence from the end of 1976 hints at Australia’s ethnic transformation.

Sir John wrote: “..a larger proportion of our population today is not of British extraction than was the case at the end of World War II. In 1947 98% were of British stock. By the 1971 census only 88% were so derived. …By far the majority of the non-British are Italians, Greeks, Yugoslavs and Germans. …Increasingly, but not yet significantly, we have Asians.”

The Governor-General warned the Palace that this pattern of immigration meant support for the monarchy could no longer be assumed as automatic.

However rather than Australia submitting to alien values, he believed that immigrants could be taught British-Australian values:
“…why they have come here is to benefit from our democratic and stable institutions which happen to include the Monarchy and our task for the future is to make it clear to them that in coming, and especially in becoming naturalised, they have bought a package deal which is, with the Monarchy, entrenched in our Constitution.”

This was only 40-odd years ago, but how times have changed!

Now Australians are required to grovel before the ‘culture’ of every immigrant. They must provide cheap accommodation and (in the Covid era) free food, while facing incessant complaints and demands for more.

Dare we say that perhaps the “racist and anti-semite” Eric Butler was correct?

First they came for the Confederates – and I did not speak out, because I was not a Confederate…

The Robert E. Lee Monument in Richmond, Virginia, unveiled in 1890, now to be removed as Virginia’s Governor surrenders to the BAME brigade.

Virginia’s Democratic Party Governor Ralph Northam (himself from a slave owning family) has finally backed down to the BAME brigade and has instructed Richmond Council to take down the great statues of the Confederate Generals on Monument Avenue just outside of down-town Richmond.

I lived in Virginia for over seven years (1995 – 2002) and had the pleasure of visiting Monument Avenue three or four times during my time in America. It was one hell of a place. The giant statues were like nothing I had seen before.

Apart from General Robert E Lee (a direct descendant of King Robert the Bruce of Scotland), Richmond Council plan to take down the statues of President Jefferson Davis (who was of English/Welsh descent), General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson (who was of Ulster-Scots descent), and General James “Jeb” Stuart (also of Ulster-Scots descent). All were British-Americans.

The J.E.B. Stuart monument, photographed here in 1933, was the second Civil War statue to be unveiled in Richmond in 1907.

Just this last week, the General Lee Statue was attacked and vandalised by hundreds of communist and anarchist demonstrators, who joined the BAME brigade, protesting the death of black career criminal George Floyd.

Floyd had been arrested by four police officers in Minneapolis, for passing forged $20 bills in local shops. He resisted arrest and was forced to the ground, where he died. Some years before in Houston, Texas, Floyd had been arrested for an armed home invasion (burglary) – he forced his way into a lady’s house and threatened her with a gun before robbing her. Due to a plea-bargain, he got away with just a five-year jail sentence.

I wonder how long it will be before the BAME brigade here in England and in the rest of the UK start demanding that our statues be taken down too, as they are not to their liking, i.e. too WASP-like. In Scotland under their neo-Marxist SNP Government this is already happening. And once Sinn Fein become the majority in Northern Ireland, they will follow suit.

The statue of King William III in St James’s Square, SW1, will doubtless have to go.

And before you say that’s never going to happen, remember the BAME group are only 15% of the UK population now (and look how much sway they have). Long before they reach 50% you can say goodbye to our history, our heritage, our heroes: statues and all. Boadicea, King Billy, Oliver Cromwell, Lord Nelson, Duke of Wellington, Cecil Rhodes, Winston Churchill, Bomber Harris and many others. They will all be written out of the new PC history books.

Will this statue of wartime allies Roosevelt and Churchill (in New Bond St, London) survive the purge?

End note: On the subject of slavery and the American Civil War, fewer than 10% of families in those Southern states that became part of the Confederacy in 1861-1865 owned slaves. And it should also be remembered that on the Northern side, many of them had owned slaves too in the recent past.

The rose-coloured myth of the Civil War is that the blue-clad Union soldiers and their brave, doomed President, Abraham Lincoln, were fighting to free the slaves. They weren’t, at least not initially. They were fighting to hold their nation – the Union – together. Lincoln was known personally to oppose slavery (which is one reason why the South seceded after his election in 1860), but his chief goal was preserving the Union. In August 1862, he famously wrote to the New York Tribune: “If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that.”

Oliver Cromwell is yet another “dead White male” who will presumably have to be sacrificed to appease the PC crusaders.

Lincoln was also part of a group in the Republican Party that wanted to remove former black slaves from the US altogether. From roughly late 1861 onward, he was involved in some very serious policy discussions about what the post-slavery US would look like, and one of his solutions that he offered, drawing on something that had long been a part of his political advocacy, was to colonise the black slaves abroad. Historically, the most famous example of this is Liberia, which was founded in 1816. Over the course of the next 50 or 60 years, several thousand former slaves migrated to Liberia and colonised it.

Lincoln liked this model, but wanted to expand upon it, and he was willing to look in Central and South America, and across the Caribbean. He pursued this policy for the better part of his presidency, secured funding from Congress in 1862, and carried it out in conjunction with the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.

H&D Editor Mark Cotterill, who reports from semi-enriched Preston, was chairman of the Virginian-based American Friends of the BNP, from 1999 – 2001.

Sir Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris might just be the only historic White Briton whose statue is permissible in the PC World.

UPDATE: Saturday June 6th (76th anniversary of the D-Day landings).

It didn’t take long for the usual suspects to fulfil our editor’s prediction! The Churchill statue was vandalised twice this weekend, once as reported by The Sun in the link above, then again the next day (see photo below).

The video below was shot at 5 am on the morning of Sunday June 7th, showing widespread vandalism of statues in Parliament Square. St Nelson Mandela seems to have escaped unscathed, but Abraham Lincoln and an array of British statesmen from Disraeli to Palmerston were all sprayed with slogans such as BLM (Black Lives Matter) and ACAB (All Cops Are Bastards). The latter referring to the same ‘cops’ who had cravenly knelt before the mob in previous days.

H&D readers will have mixed feelings about some of the historical figures commemorated outside Parliament, but none of us should be in any doubt – this vandalism isn’t a commentary on the historical record of Abraham Lincoln or Disraeli. In fact we can safely bet that fewer than 1% of the black protesters had the slightest idea who Lord Beaconsfield might be.

Their impulse was to demonstrate control of the streets and contempt for white civilisation. Our political leaders – and following years of brainwashing, also our police – have allowed them free rein.

St George’s Day – Celebrate the Spirit of St George!

The editor and deputy editor would like to wish all H&D readers a very happy St George’s Day.

While St George’s Day – April 23rd – is mainly forgotten, ignored or even ridiculed by the liberal / left establishment, who by the way have no qualms about promoting everybody else’s national day, culture and heritage, apart from ours – we nationalists remember and celebrate it.

As Sir Oswald Mosley said on St George’s Day 1937:

“In the lives of great nations there comes the moment of decision, there comes the moment of destiny. And this great nation, again and again in the great hours of its fate, has swept aside convention, has swept aside the little men of talk and of delay, and has decided to follow men and movements who say, ‘we go forward to action, let those who dare follow us in this hour’.”

While many English (and British) nationalists feel a fierce national pride for the St George’s cross and the patron saint’s day, England in fact shares St George with a host of other countries and places. Each has its own unusual customs surrounding his feast day, including;

Catalonia, Spain – St George (Sant Jordi) is associated with several places in Spain but one of the most colourful is the Catalan capital. A public holiday is held in the area and has several similarities with Valentine’s Day, with roses and books being exchanged by lovers. Barcelona’s most popular street Las Ramblas becomes awash with flower and book sellers. Catalonia has managed to export the tradition as UNESCO adopted the date as World Book Day. And of course FC Barcelona have the St George cross in the club’s badge.

Russia – The Russian Orthodox Church uses the Julian Calendar so St George’s Day is celebrated on the same day, but it is 6th May, not 23rd April. As well as this date Russians also mark the consecration of the Church of St George on 26th November. This was traditionally the time of year when peasants were permitted to move to a different landowner. While this tradition has died out the Ribbon of St George is still one of the most respected Russian military honours. The black and orange striped ribbon is also used by civilians as a patriotic symbol. It has been seen again recently displayed by separatists in Ukraine as a Russian symbol.

Albania – Albanians celebrate St George’s day by going out and lighting a large bonfire and playing around it as a sign of joy.

Bulgaria – Roasting a whole lamb is traditional on St George’s Day in Bulgaria as he is the patron saint of shepherds. It is seen as a day when evil enchantments can be broken and a blessed day when the saint blesses the crop and morning dew, so many walk in the early morning to wash their face in the fresh dew.

Croatia – Croats also use fire to mark St George’s Day which is considered the first day of Spring. In the Slavic tradition girls are dressed as goddesses in leaves and sing for locals.

An H&D event celebrating St George’s Day

Back in England, normally many local pubs in White working class area (and even a few in the middle class suburbs) would organise events to celebrate St George’s Day, but most would be content with just putting out a few England flags (then taking them down the next day – so as not to offend!)

This year, with the Covid 19 reaching its peak, pubs are still closed (although our borders are still open!), so there will be no St George’s Day celebrations – official or unofficial (to the delight of the politically correct / do-gooder / snowflake brigade etc.).

However, St George’s Day and the spirit of St George will still be celebrated at H&D Towers (where England flags fly proudly all the year round) where the editor and assistant webmaster will raise a glass a two to our patron saint, to England and to the English, while there’s still a few of us left!

And finally, to quote from William Shakespeare’s Henry V (1598):

KING HENRY V:

…And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry ‘God for Harry, England, and Saint George!’

St George’s Day – Celebrate the Spirit of St George!

Britons’ DNA unchanged in 1,400 years

The new study shows continuing clusters in Britain based on genetic patterns dating back more than 1,400 years.

The new study shows continuing clusters in Britain based on genetic patterns dating back more than 1,400 years.

A major scientific study published today has demolished one of the most frequent arguments used by multiracialists.

Our opponents regularly claim that mass immigration to our shores since the late 1940s has been merely the latest of many immigrant waves – that we are indeed “a nation of immigrants”.

Today’s study proves the opposite.  If one excludes effects of the last 70 years of mass non-white immigration, patterns of DNA in the UK correspond remarkably closely to the ethnic map of 600 AD, and in fact to political and ‘tribal’ divisions of Anglo-Saxon England.

Heritage and Destiny will analyse the full implications for nationalists from this scientific study in our next issue (published at the start of May 2015).

In the meantime we are pleasantly surprised to see media coverage given to the study in today’s and tomorrow’s newspapers:

New Scientist

Daily Telegraph

Guardian

Financial Times

Sky News

Daily Mail

The full survey is published in the journal Nature, though only a preview is available online free.

Happy St George’s Day!

Heritage and Destiny wishes all readers a Happy St George’s Day!

The men that worked for England
They have their graves at home:
And birds and bees of England
About the cross can roam

But they that fought for England,
Following a falling star,
Alas, alas for England
They have their graves afar.

And they that rule in England,
In stately conclave met,
Alas, alas for England
They have no graves as yet.

Jared Taylor speaks in London

Jared Taylor, founder of American Renaissance, spoke in West London on 19th April at a meeting organised by the Bloomsbury Forum. Despite the best efforts of Englands’s “anti-fascists”. the meeting went ahead without interruption.

An audience of almost 100 British patriots heard a superb analysis by Mr Taylor of America’s racial transformation. The gospel of liberal “equality” has led to absurd posturing by the U.S. authorities.  Schools and colleges are ordered to produce “equal” academic results for blacks and whites.  Yet the inescapable fact is that such “equality” is impossible to achieve.

The fraudulent promise of equality is supported by both the Democratic and Republican parties.  Mr Taylor stated that the USA was no longer a White country, and that the only realistic political option for Whites is to pursue a separate homeland. After an erudite overview of the present state of America, discussion focused on the various options for such a homeland, from the Pacific Northwest (demographically White for the foreseeable future but politically liberal) to areas of the Deep South such as Mississippi (demographically mixed but with a racially realistic outlook).

A video of Jared Taylor’s address to the Bloomsbury Forum is presently being edited for publication.

 

On the following day Jared Taylor and his hosts travelled north for a social gathering with Andrew Brons MEP and several nationalist veterans including the Heritage and Destinyteam at a traditional venue in the Pennines.

Is the Falklands more British than the UK?

This week’s overwhelming vote by residents of the Falkland Islands to remain subjects of the British Crown – with only 3 votes against and 1,513 in favour – has led some observers (including the BBC) to ask the dangerous question: is the Falklands now more British than the mainland “mother country”.

Falklanders celebrating in Port Stanley after the emphatic pro-British vote

Its population certainly more closely resembles Britain as it used to be: i.e. White.

The same is mostly true of British expatriates around the world: more than 200,000 in South Africa and New Zealand; more than 600,000 in the USA and Canada; 1.3 million in Australia; and more than 750,000 in Spain.

In the case of many expatriates the changing nature of their native country was a major reason for choosing to leave it, and their identity is not with today’s Britain, but with the once and (we hope) future Britain.

Meanwhile the Falklanders (and the inhabitants of other sometimes embattled remnants of empire such as St Helena and Gibraltar) hold fast to a strongly British identity as a symbol of defiance against those who would sell them out – in the case of the Falklands, to their intermittently aggressive neighbour Argentina.

Anti-British protestors in the Argentine capital burn an effigy of Prince William outside the British Embassy.

London’s dispute with Argentina, which led to a brief military conflict in 1982, has flared up again during the last year, and might take another turn with the election of an Argentine Pope – the former Archibishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, who has become Pope Francis I.

Last year he told a congregation in the Argentine capital at a memorial service for the 1982 war:
“We come to pray for those who have fallen, sons of the homeland who set out to defend his mother, the homeland, to claim the country that is theirs and they were usurped.”

The new Pope Francis I – then Cardinal Bergoglio of Buenos Aires – seen last year with Argentina’s President Cristina Kirchner, who has reignited the Falklands controversy and now suggests the Pope might mediate with London.

One might expect him to take a more diplomatic line now that he has become Pope. Some commentators have suggested that the Falklands controversy might delay a papal visit to the UK, but even in the immediate aftermath of the 1982 war memories were short. Argentina and Tottenham Hotspur football star Osvaldo Ardiles was sent on a diplomatic season’s loan to Paris St Germain in 1982-3, but soon returned to the London club for the 1983-4 season and remained for five years, even coming back as manager in 1993.  Ardiles and his fellow Argentine Spurs star Ricky Villa were inducted into the Tottenham Hotspur Hall of Fame in 2008.

Happy St George’s Day

st_george_oneEngland First chairman Mark Cotterill wishes all members and supporters a happy St. George’s Day.

Mark said, “I hope all nationalist activists will take an hour or two off today from their hectic election campaigns, to raise a glass to our patron Saint – St. George. I wish all racial-nationalist candidates, from whatever political party all the very best for May 3rd. Lets make sure you give them your full support and get the best possible vote in these difficult times.”

‘Cry God for England, Harry and St George!’ Those immortal words are from Shakespeare’s Henry V, but who was St George and how did he become patron saint of England?

St George was a Roman soldier who lived in the 3rd century AD. At the end of the century the Emperor Diocletian persecuted Christians and St George was martyred in 303 AD.

burnley_st_georges_steven2The cult of St George was brought to England from the Middle East by the crusaders. (St George was popular with the crusaders because he was a soldier). He is supposed to have appeared to them at Antioch in 1098.

St Georges Day, 23 April was set by the synod of Oxford in 1222. Meanwhile he was growing in popularity in England. By the 14th century St George was seen as England’s saint, rather than St. Edmund.

(St. Edmund was the King of East Anglia from 855 until 869, when his English army was defeated by the invading Danish forces known as the Great Heathen Army.  Edmund refused to renounce his Christian faith and was beheaded on the orders of the Danish commander.  A decade later the Danes were defeated by Alfred the Great.  St. Edmund’s body was preserved and later transferred to a market town in Suffolk which became Bury St Edmunds, a shrine which became the centre of a popular Christian cult.)

In the Middle Ages some people formed religious guilds. They prayed for dead members’ souls and provided charity. Many were dedicated to St George. On St George’s day in many places effigies of St George were taken out of the local church and paraded around the parish.

Furthermore in the Middle Ages the legend of St George and the dragon grew up. Many places also paraded a model dragon.

However after the Reformation the cult of the saints was swept away in England and St George lost much of his importance. Unlike many national saints St George has been neglected, rather like the English in general. However in recent years St Georges Day has been revived – thanks to English nationalism, which has also been revived since the 1990’s – as a patriotic symbol of England, the English nation and the white English people.
