Race and the UK Census: facing the facts

Mainstream journalists as well as H&D readers have this week been confronted by sobering news from the UK Census. This is a snapshot of the UK population taken in March 2021 (and a year later in Scotland), but whose results regarding racial demographics (excluding Scotland) were released a few days ago.

Some observers have clouded the picture by making inaccurate claims, notably Nigel Farage due to his longstanding ideological confusion of the concepts of race and nationality.

And some racial nationalists have seized on the Census to make pessimistic statements that the “Great Replacement” has already occurred.

So what is the true picture and how should racial nationalists respond? Click here for H&D‘s Census report.

UK census and racial replacement: H&D analysis

A march to the Home Office in 1972 by Smithfield meat porters protesting at the admission of more than 27,000 Asian immigrants from Uganda. Half a century later, the UK Census reveals the long-term consequences of mass immigration.

Demographic details were released this week from the Census taken in March 2021 in England and Wales – some of the figures for Northern Ireland had already been released a few weeks earlier, while in Scotland the Census was delayed by 12 months due to the pandemic, so Scottish results are not yet available. The Census findings should come as no surprise to H&D readers, though they seem to have shocked some civic nationalists and might yet convert some of the latter to racial realism.

Yet we should be careful not to react with excessive pessimism. The Census reveals a changing UK, but not one that has changed beyond rescue. White Britons are still a majority in most of our country and will remain so for years to come. The UK can be rescued, if racial nationalists have sufficient political will, discipline and competence.

The main headlines reflected census findings concerning both religion and the racial transformation of British cities.

For the first time the majority of the population in England and Wales no longer define themselves as Christian. This is only the third Census which has asked about religion, so no pre-2001 comparisons can be made, but it can safely be assumed from other data that the vast majority of Britons would have defined themselves as some sort of Christian until the 1960s when the younger generation began to abandon their parents’ faith and non-Christian immigrants began to arrive in significant numbers.

It is the abandonment of faith by White Britons that has contributed most to this aspect of the transformation of England and Wales: no doubt we shall find similar patterns in Scotland when the figures are eventually published. (The religious Census question is voluntary, and 6% of respondents in England and Wales chose not to answer it.)

37.2% of respondents answered ‘no religion’ (up from 25.2% a decade ago); 6.5% answered Muslim (up from 4.9%); and 46.2% answered Christian (down from 59.3%).

The other minority faiths remained at almost the same level as in 2021, including Hindu (1.7%), Sikh (0.9%), Buddhist (0.5%) and Jewish (0.5%). It should be noted that many Jews define themselves in racial/cultural terms and are not religiously ‘observant’, so would probably have replied to this Census question by ticking ‘no religion’ or refusing to answer, but even so it’s doubtful whether Jews of any description amount to more than 1% of the UK population.

In Northern Ireland far fewer answered ‘no religion’: 17.4%, a substantial increase from 10.1% in 2011 but less than half the figure for England and Wales. It seems likely that people from a Catholic background in Northern Ireland are especially likely to answer ‘Catholic’ for political/cultural reasons, even if they are no longer religious believers.

In reality, the surprise is that 27.5 million people in England and Wales still define themselves as ‘Christian’: anecdotal evidence suggests that these are heavily concentrated among older White Britons, Eastern European immigrants; and blacks. The churches can partly blame themselves for this decline. There has been no robust equivalent to the ‘Counter-Reformation’ of past centuries, little defence of traditional values, merely a meek surrender to political correctness and a wish to be ‘nice’ to those who promote an alien culture.

In short, while H&D readers will themselves be divided on religious questions, we can probably all agree that the religious transformation of our nation is not necessarily equivalent to racial and cultural replacement: it’s a different and only partly connected issue.

Turning to the question of race, the main headlines concerned British cities, where in some cases White Britons are now a minority and where Whites overall only remain a majority due to Eastern European immigration.

London is only 37% White British, though non-British Whites (in London’s case including many affluent Western Europeans as well as the stereotypical Poles, Romanians, etc.) help boost the overall White total to 54%. Similarly Manchester is 57% White but only 49% White British.

There are some cities where – even including non-Britons – Whites have now become a minority. Birmingham is now only 49% White, and Leicester only 41% White.

However these Midlands hotbeds of “diversity” also illustrate the political complications caused by immigration. The non-White populations are divided between several different cultures, some of which are far more hostile to each other than they are to Whites, as seen in recent riots between Indians and Pakistanis in Leicester.

Leicester is 34% Indian and only 3% Pakistani – but many of the former are Muslims who identify with the Pakistan cricket team rather than India (the immediate trigger for the riots). Leicester is 23.5% Muslim, 18% Hindu, and 4.5% Sikh.

Birmingham is even more complex, and as in Leicester this has already begun to cause problems for the Labour Party, not only because many ethnic minorities are socially conservative and detest Labour’s surrender to trendy ideas on ‘trans’ rights etc., but also because each community increasingly believes it has the right to control the selection of councillors and MPs.

The racial kaleidoscope of Birmingham is 17% Pakistani; 6% Indian; 4% Bangladeshi; 6% African; 4% Caribbean; with a further 10% being some other variety of black or mixed race. Only 43% of Birmingham is White British.

Most of the headlines focused on English cities, but there are perceptible though less dramatic changes elsewhere in the United Kingdom. Cardiff is now less than 74% White British: of course the city has long had its ‘Tiger Bay’ population of blacks and half-castes around the old Cardiff Docks, descended from migrants from dozens of different countries. But Wales as a whole remains 93.8% White, compared to 81% of England. Northern Ireland remains 96.6% White, though 6.5% of its population was born outside either the UK or Ireland (this mainly reflects Eastern European immigration, heavily concentrated in Belfast where almost 10% were born outside the British Isles, and in one or two other Ulster cities).

Turning from these large cities to areas of northern England which saw an explosion of support for racial nationalism more than twenty years ago, but where the nationalist surge lasted for about a decade at most, the Census suggests that we should not be too pessimistic.

Or put another way, the ‘Great Replacement’ is not yet an excuse for political cowardice, apathy or fatalism.

The political reality is that the vast expansion of the UK’s non-White population is concentrated in council wards and constituencies that we already knew – ten or twenty years ago – would not vote for racial nationalists. By contrast most of the areas that were winnable then, remain winnable now.

Lutfur Rahman returned to office as Mayor of Tower Hamlets several years after being disgraced and expelled from the Labour Party. Asian ghetto politics are becoming as much of a problem for Labour’s liberal multiracialists as they are for us!

Admittedly a big exception to this is East London, where council seats were winnable (and in one case won) by the BNP in the 1990s but have now been conquered, again with mixed benefits for Labour. The Borough of Tower Hamlets is now only 23% White British, and even the old Millwall council ward won by the BNP’s Derek Beackon in 1992 is now only about one-third White British (due to boundary changes a precise figure cannot be obtained).

The transformation is nowhere near so dramatic in those areas of northern England where nationalists polled well post-millennium.

Take for example three cities/towns that H&D knows well: Oldham, Blackburn and Preston. All three of these remain racially divided along stark geographical/political borders, which means that numerous council wards remain winnable for a racial nationalist party that got its act together.

In Oldham the two areas that make up St James’s ward (which the BNP almost won in 2002 when H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton was a leading activist in Oldham BNP) remain majority White British: Moorside & Sholver (89.1%) and Derker (80.5%). A short distance away (on the other side of the former Oldham railway station) begins one of several Asian ghetto areas where the Pakistani population approaches 80%. In other parts of Oldham, Bangladeshis similarly predominate.

But in electoral terms this is only a small problem. There are council wards such as the old Alexandra (since broken up by boundary changes), where a White ghetto was outpolled by an Asian ghetto, but most wards are either no-go areas for White nationalists, or else remain overwhelmingly White and winnable. Overall, Oldham remains 65% White British, and its Asians are divided (often bitterly) between 13.5% Pakistanis and 9% Bangladeshis, with another 5% being some form of African, Caribbean or other blacks / half-castes.

Racial nationalist parties have not been defeated by demographics, but by our own failures.

Turning to Blackburn, where H&D editor Mark Cotterill won a council seat in 2006, there is a similar picture of stark racial-political division. Mark’s old ward Meadowhead remains 91% White British, and most of the old Mill Hill ward won by the BNP in 2002 is similarly 85%-90% White British, though with some Asian encroachment across the ward boundary. Looking at the entire borough, Blackburn with Darwen overall is only 57% White British, but this reflects the increasing Asian domination of their ghetto areas. As in Oldham this represents no practical political change in terms of winnable seats for racial nationalists.

The Oldham riots of 2001 were the most dramatic symbol of racial conflict in the UK, and helped expose great political potential for racial nationalism – sadly wasted due to the BNP’s charlatan leader Nick Griffin

And finally looking at Preston, where the H&D office is based, we can see the practical political options that still exist for our movement. These options can be complicated by racial realities but are not fatally compromised by them.

Preston’s Census figures overall are quite similar to Oldham’s: 66% White British – though Preston’s Asians define themselves as 13% Indian, 5% Pakistani, and only 0.5% Bangladeshi.

The Ribbleton ward of Preston City Council, which our editor has contested several times, is still 74.5% White British. Things got complicated (as explained at the time in H&D) during the 2021 Lancashire County Council elections, where the relevant county council division combined Ribbleton with Frenchwood & Fishwick, which is only 37% White British, and about half of which is an Asian ghetto.

So Mark achieved one of the best nationalist results in England at city council level, but the simultaneous county council result was never going to be as strong.

In these boroughs – Oldham, Blackburn with Darwen, and Preston – electoral campaigning requires local knowledge. Often leafletting literally stops at a certain point where the ethnic make-up of a street visibly changes.

But the 2021 Census doesn’t really change any of this electoral reality.

As Cassius tells Brutus in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

The fault in ourselves as nationalists twenty years ago was that most of the movement placed its faith in a charlatan, Nick Griffin, who destroyed any hope that the BNP had of building effective branches in the racial battlegrounds of northern England.

In the 2020s nationalists ought to be recovering from the self-inflicted damage of the Griffin era, but instead much of the movement has succumbed to a cult mentality that induces pessimism, and divides us from the vast majority of potential sympathisers.

A fatal attraction to crank conspiracy theories – and latterly adherence to the Moscow despot Putin and the Asiatic mysticism of Aleksandr Dugin – risks discrediting UK nationalism for a generation.

The UK Census results ought to sober up our deluded movement. It’s not too late, but within the next decade or two we must build a credible resistance and a White political renaissance. Scrap the cultism, build a serious movement, and start to win.

Celebrate St Edmund – the original English Patron Saint

Today – November 20th – is St Edmund’s Day. While St George (who had no historical connection to England) is commonly regarded as our Patron Saint, the original Patron Saint of England was St Edmund, who was King of East Anglia for about fourteen years until he was killed by Danish invaders in 869.

These invaders destroyed all records of Edmund’s reign, so it’s no longer even known precisely when and where he was born.

But about 150 years after his death, the Anglo-Danish King Canute converted to Christianity and began the tradition of venerating St Edmund as a Christian martyr and Patron Saint of England. For the next 500 years the abbey that Canute founded to house his relics, at Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, was one of England’s most important shrines, attracting pilgrims from across the country.

The Wilton Diptych, one of the most important survivals of mediaeval English art, includes this depiction of St Edmund (above left).

Mediaeval chroniclers depicted Edmund as having been born in Nuremberg and descended from Saxon kings. His actual birthplace is uncertain, though we do know that the East Anglia over which he ruled was one of several Anglo-Saxon kingdoms in what later became England, and was established around 550 by Germanic tribes arriving from the Frisian region (in what is now the Netherlands and north-western Germany) and Jutland (in what is now Denmark).

St Edmund’s origins, his death, and even the date of his feast day, combine to make him a highly appropriate patron saint of England in 2022 – when more than ever we should be aware of our racial roots and aware of the need for solidarity with our fellow Europeans against the encroaching tyranny of the multiracial new world order.

The flag of St Edmund was England’s original symbol, long before the flag of St George

Liberals tell us we are a nation of immigrants, and point to the successive waves of migration that created England: including Edmund and his Anglo-Saxon ancestors, as well as the Viking invaders who killed him.

Racial nationalists by contrast understand that our fellow Europeans are our racial cousins, whereas the offspring of non-Europeans remain fundamentally alien, whether they were born in London or Lagos.

So whether he was born in Nuremberg or Norwich, St Edmund was an English king and a European king.

A statue of St Edmund stands outside St Edmundsbury Cathedral

The fact that 20th November is the Feast Day of St Edmund, King and Martyr, is also appropriate for another reason. Today on the frontline of the European racial nationalist battle against alien tyranny, our Spanish comrades mark the anniversary of the martyrdom of José Antonio Primo de Rivera, the Falangist leader murdered by communists on this day 86 years ago. November 20th has for decades been a day of pilgrimage for Spanish nationalists to the Valley of the Fallen, where he is buried in a vast basilica carved out of a mountain near Madrid.

The 21st century equivalents of his murderers now aim to desecrate José Antonio’s grave at this memorial to the victims of the Spanish Civil War. As H&D‘s European correspondent Isabel Peralta explains in the video below, this is part of a tyrannical “democratic memory law” by which Spain’s left-wing government is imposing a particular version of history. In this one-eyed ‘history’, the Spanish communists and their allies are to be treated as heroes – in fact Spain this month has a new postage stamp celebrating its Communist Party – whereas nationalists are to be damned as villains.

Isabel herself will next week face trial under the Spanish equivalent of the UK’s race laws: a politically motivated trial designed to distract from the failure of Spain’s immigration policy. H&D will soon be reporting on this trial, and before then we shall have a report on today’s commemoration of José Antonio.

The battle for Europe continues – and St Edmund is the ideal patron saint for Englishmen to concentrate our minds on this battle.

So let us all celebrate St Edmund today, celebrate the legacy of José Antonio, and celebrate the new generation of racial nationalists who will reclaim and rebuild a Europe fit for Europeans.

Happy St George’s Day!

The Editor, Assistant Editor and all involved with H&D wish all Englishmen, not just in England, but in the British Isles and worldwide, a very happy St George’s Day.

How did a man born in Cappadocia in AD 270 become the patron saint of England? For our overseas readers, here are ten facts about Saint George.

St George’s Day takes place on 23 April, which is traditionally accepted as being the date of his death in AD 303.

St George was beheaded for resigning his military post and protesting against his pagan leader, the Emperor Diocletian (245-313 AD), who led Rome’s persecution of Christians.

The Emperor’s wife was so inspired by St George’s bravery and loyalty to his religion, that she too became a Christian and was subsequently executed for her faith.

Before the cult of St George was brought back from the Crusades, the top choice for England’s patron saint was Edmund the Martyr (died 869 AD), King of East Anglia. According to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, Edmund was killed by an invading Viking army. He is also the patron saint of pandemics, torture victims, and wolves.

St George is the Patron Saint of Scouting and on the Sunday nearest to 23 April scouts and guides throughout England used to parade through the streets, until it was seen as “racist”!

His emblem, a red cross on a white background was adopted by Richard the Lionheart and brought to England in the 12th century, when the king’s soldiers would wear it on their tunics to avoid confusion in battle.

Aside from England, other countries that celebrate St George’s Day include Canada, Croatia, Portugal, Cyprus, Greece, Georgia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and the Republic of Macedonia.

Though celebrations are somewhat muted in modern PC England (unlike St Patrick’s Day which is highly promoted), some Englishmen – including those at H&D – can still be seen to mark St George’s Day with quintessentially English traditions such as Morris Dancing, eating fish and chips or going to the local pub/club!

The most famous legend of St George is of him slaying a dragon, with the dragon commonly used to represent the Devil in the Middle Ages. The slaying of the dragon by St George was first credited to him in the 12th century, long after his death and it is therefore likely that the many stories connected with St George’s name are fictitious.

The date of 23 April was also the date of the death of the English playwright William Shakespeare. UNESCO marked this historic date by declaring it the International Day of the Book and it is also traditionally when Shakespeare’s birthday is celebrated.

King Henry speaking to English soldiers besieging Harfleur, from Shakespeare’s Henry V:

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour’d rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o’erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O’erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill’d with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest –
That those whom you call’d fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to war. 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!’

Or from the football terraces – before the Woke FA / PC brigade banned it –

Keep St. George in my heart keep me English,
Keep St. George in my heart I pray,
Keep St. George in my heart keep me English,
Keep me English till my dying day,

No Surrender, No Surrender, No Surrender to the IRA!

End note:
The St George Cross and Three Lions flags, proudly fly from H&D Towers 365 days a year – not just on ST Georges Day!

Government adviser targeted in fake ‘racism’ storm

Paul Collier

The distinguished economist Sir Paul Collier is today at the centre of a fierce row over his views on race and immigration, following his appointment to an advisory council that will guide the British government’s “levelling up” agenda.

The Conservative Party’s election victory in December 2019 was partly based on convincing former Labour voters that the Tories were now serious about tackling social inequalities and lack of opportunity. Senior minister Michael Gove has been given charge of this agenda, and this week Gove confirmed that advisory council members “such as Sir Paul Collier, renowned economist at Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government, [would be ] providing further support and constructive analysis.”

Woke commentators and the race relations industry today rounded on Sir Paul, condemning his comments that “the indigenous British had become a minority in their own capital”, and his critique of the “easy-access welfare system, which tempts migrants into remaining at the bottom of the social ladder”.

One of Sir Paul’s sins was in the video below, where he dared to ask: “Is London such a great success for the indigenous population? Something rather drastic has happened to the indigenous population in London … I can think of no other major city where the indigenous population has more than halved.”

Other European capitals are set to follow London’s lead, with equally disastrous consequences, if Europe remains dominated by the socially destructive ideology of ‘free market capitalism’.

It is ironic that the so-called left – in their blind devotion to this ‘free market’ – are lining up to condemn Sir Paul Collier. Yet further evidence that radical nationalists should take over the ‘socialist’ agenda and defend the interests of indigenous European workers.

Tony Paulsen reports from this year’s Traditional Britain Group Christmas Party

After a fallow year in 2020 when Covid restrictions forbade social gatherings (a prohibition that was, it seems, honoured more in the breach than the observance by Downing Street staffers!) the Traditional Britain Group’s now itself traditional Christmas party took place in a Mayfair pub on Saturday 11th December 2021.

As in 2019, the event sold out and indeed, was over-booked, with a record 75 tickets sold and yet more people attending the after party when the main event was over.

Guest of honour was the historian and film-maker Thomas Rowsell aka “Survive the Jive” (whose Twitter feed as @Tom_Rowsell is well worth following).

Thomas Rowsell, TBG guest speaker

Tom gave an erudite and insightful talk about the Anglo-Saxons and their heritage. He had, he said, listened to a speech by Sir Roger Scruton at his first TBG event some seven years ago, and had been hugely impressed by the speaker, but not persuaded by Scruton’s thesis that English institutions and the common law should be the foundations upon which resistance to what is now called woke-ism should rest.

On the contrary, in Rowsell’s view, those institutions had long since fallen to the enemy and were much more likely to be used as tools of oppression of our folk by a corrupted and deracinated elite.

Rather we should look to a community of shared descent, for while the Angles, Saxons and Jutes who first began to arrive in England in the fifth century were purely Germanic peoples very distinct from the Romanised Britons, by the end of the seventh century, they had largely merged with the Brythonic natives to form the modern English people, rather different from the earliest Anglo-Saxon settlers by reason of the absorption of the Celtic element.

Our language, though suffused with Norman French loan words and much changed by time, comes down to us directly from the early Anglo-Saxon settlers, but the ethnic make up of the English had changed significantly long before the Norman Conquest (which in the speaker’s view had little impact upon our genetic inheritance compared to the absorption of the Romanised Britons), to include a minority Celtic as well as a majority Anglo-Saxon-Jutish component.

We are, said Rowsell, a distinct people but at the same time we share a common cultural and religious heritage with other European peoples and our separateness had been overemphasised after the Reformation, sometimes by outright cranks such as the “diggers” who attained a notoriety out of all proportion to their minuscule numbers and complete failure to change society after the English Civil War, claiming to restore a supposed primitive Anglo-Saxon social order against the heirs of the Norman landlords.

Bad though William the Tanner’s Bastard might have been in 1066, there is no evidence to support the myth that six centuries later, the English aristocracy of Stuart times was racially different from the common people to any discernible degree.

Historians in the insular Whig and Protestant traditions often failed to acknowledge facts that were unwelcome to them, for example, that our forefathers had long shared the heathen faith of other Germanic peoples before becoming Catholic, as was the whole of western Europe in the Middle Ages. We are not so very different from other European peoples. The nineteenth century imperialist myth of Anglo-Saxon particularism would have surprised the Anglo-Saxons!

An earlier TBG event in 2013 was addressed by Jacob Rees-Mogg, now a Cabinet minister, seen here (above left) with TBG Vice-President Gregory Lauder-Frost

A noteworthy aspect of the gathering was how young and well-educated so many of those attending are, and also how many women attended a meeting in a movement too often a male preserve. The TBG’s successful social media operations and the high-profile online presence of the guest speaker clearly have an impact and disseminate our ideas beyond the usual white working-class male dominated stereotype.

It is also interesting to compare the very high attendance at the Christmas party with the rather less well attended annual conference some two months earlier in the year, which may well reflect the continuing reluctance of the older age group that is more in evidence at the annual conference to attend large events in a time of continuing anxiety about Covid. Whether well-founded or not, such concerns clearly continue to trouble many in our circles, as well as in society more generally.

The TBG continues to play an important role in bringing people together different in an agreeable non-party political, non-factional meeting place. We hope that it will continue to do so in the coming year, despite the likelihood of government-imposed constraints upon meeting in the earlier part of 2022.

Editor’s note’s: Tony’s report on the 2021 Traditional Britain Group Conference, which was held in London on October 23rd, will be published in H&D #106, which will be out in early January 2022.

Those who wish to join TBG yet perhaps live too far from London (it is a rather London-centric organisation, less in terms of membership, than where the meetings are held) might wish to visit its web page www.traditionalbritain.org or subscribe to its Twitter feed @TradBritGroup

England Rugby drop ‘Saxons’ name in ethnic diversity drive

England’s rugby union team is the latest to fall into line with the worldwide disparagement of White identity.

This week the rugby authorities decided to rename the England reserve team, previously known as ‘England Saxons’. It will henceforth be known as ‘England A’, because the word ‘Saxon’ was thought to be an obstacle to the all-important drive to make rugby more ‘diverse’.

For some years now England Rugby have been trying to persuade crowds at international matches held at the Twickenham stadium in west London to stop singing their traditional anthem Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. Though there has never been any suggestion that this was intended to mock black heritage, the mere use of an originally black slave song is now seen as ‘cultural appropriation’.

While blacks are encouraged (indeed increasingly required) to be cast as White characters in historical plays, films and television productions, it is forbidden for Whites to stray onto black territory, as it is almost sacrilegious for a White to touch holy relics of black history and culture.

Examples from the world of sport include the renaming of the Washington Redskins as the Washington Football Team; and the suggested renaming of the Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians baseball teams. Another American football team – Kansas City Chiefs – have run into similar controversy and banned the use of native headdresses and face paint by fans.

Fans of Kansas City Chiefs are now banned from using once-traditional headdresses and faceprint

The term ‘diversity’ of course always means ‘less White’.

One never hears any suggestion that a Black-dominated sport or a Black-dominated form of popular culture should be made ‘more diverse’.

Perhaps in some cases that’s a good thing. If sectors such as ‘gangsta rap’ were to be made ‘more diverse’, then perhaps shootings and stabbings in London would also become ‘more diverse’, rather than featuring primarily blacks killing other blacks.

Saxons might now be unmentionable in England Rugby circles, but 24 hours after their name was purged, the real historic Anglo-Saxons had the last laugh.

The Cerne Abbas Giant

The famous 180 ft Cerne Abbas Giant, carved into a Dorset hillside, has after years of speculation been dated to the late Saxon period. Detailed sediment analysis, studying grains of sand and long-buried microscopic snails, revealed yesterday that the Giant was created somewhere between 700 and 1100 AD.

No one has yet suggested that he was created by Africans.

Happy St George’s Day to H&D readers

For a second year running, we celebrate St George’s Day – commemorating the patron saint of England – in a country where normal life and normal celebrations are impossible.

Whatever happens post-Covid and post-Brexit, Englishmen face a challenge reclaiming control of our own country.

At major events nationwide, Englishmen are required to kneel in memory of the American criminal George Floyd.

Statues are torn down, streets and public buildings renamed, vast swathes of our national heritage disparaged.

And this week the Church of England decided that all future appointments of bishops should have shortlists with the compulsory inclusion of a non-White candidate, in yet another obsessive pursuit of ‘diversity’.

The good news is that English folk across our country are increasingly rebelling against this insanity.

For complex reasons, explained in recent editions of H&D, this rebellion will not be fully reflected in this year’s local and regional elections, but there are many signs of hope for the medium-term.

At least this year – on what is likely to be a bright, sunny April day, those of us who have candidates to campaign for will be able to put in a good few hours leafletting, before taking an outside table (socially distanced) at a local hostelry to celebrate our national day!

H&D editor Mark Cotterill is standing as an Independent candidate for Preston City Council and Lancashire County Council – he thanks patriots from around the region and around the Anglosphere who have supported his campaign financially and/or in person.

St George he was for England,
And before he killed the dragon
He drank a pint of English ale
Out of an English flagon.
For though he fast right readily
In hair-shirt or in mail,
It isn’t safe to give him cakes
Unless you give him ale.

(from The Englishman, by G.K. Chesterton)

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.
