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)
