King Edward 8th of Britain, known informally as David, abdicated the throne on 10m December 1936, having decided to remain with Mrs. Wallis Simpson (originally Besslewallis Warfield) after her divorce (kept secret by the British press) from her husband Ernest, whom she had married after previously divorcing her first husband Earl Winfield Spencer, a lieutenant in the US Navy. How times do not change!
Edward 8th thus became merely the Duke of Windsor and he and his wife spent the rest of their lives in a foreign country, never again to reside at his beloved English home, Fort Belvedere. Edward’s former friend, Thelma, Lady Furness who introduced the Prince of Wales to the Simpsons, became ostracized by them prior to his abdication and marriage. Before the final act of separation, there had been demonstrations by members of the public waving placards proclaiming, “Save the King from Baldwin” (the British Conservative Prime Minister) who had opposed this liaison. As today there were plenty who supported sinful icons at the expense of true Biblical based Christian morality.
How many times have we seen treachery in the history of the British nation and people? We can go back as far as the successful invasion of Britain by the Romans in 43 AD., which was facilitated by the betrayal of the British King Caradoc (or Caractacus – the Romanized version of his name) by Queen Cartismandua of the Yorkshire based Brigantes tribe, as a result of which he was captured and paraded in chains in Rome. He was spared the usual fate of captured kings because he was a member of the British Royal Family and extremely eloquent stating that he would never have been defeated but for this treachery. Hardly a painted savage!
A short time afterwards King Prasutagus of the Iceni tribe, based in Norfolk, died in 60AD, leaving half of his estate to the Roman Emperor Claudius. However, this was not enough, for Roman officials tried to seize all of his wealth, their troops abusing his widow Boudicca (Boadicea) and her daughters. She took revenge on the Romans by sacking their three main settlements in the East; London, Colchester and St Albans.
The conflict between the Roman Invaders and the British continued until the Romans withdrew in the 5th century AD. But by 664 AD the Roman usurpers were back, this time in the form of the apostate Roman Catholic church. It was this year that heralded the infamous Synod of Whitby on the east coast of England where Roman customs were allowed to supplant the workings of the original apostolic Celtic Christian Church as instigated by none other than Joseph of Aramathea in 37AD at Glastonbury. This was mainly due to the influence of the Roman prelate, Wilfrid, who had managed to influence the wife of King Oswy of Northumbria, to favour the Roman interpretation. As a result of this betrayal, the Celtic church was hounded and its adherents massacred, leaving only remnants untouched in the western confines of the land.
Later King John attempted to hand over the Crown of England to the Pope, but then had to submit to the Barons, who having put together the Magna Carta at Bury St Edmunds, presented it to the King for signature at Runnymede in 1215. Henry 8th for various reasons broke with the Pope, if not the Roman Church, but his daughter Elizabeth 1st had to fight off the murderous advance of that evil church and its Spanish Armada in 1588. Not many are aware that Philip 2nd of Spain raised yet another Armada in 1596, but it was smashed by a storm just after leaving Spanish waters off Finisterre. Later still, Oliver Cromwell had to depose Charles 1st because of his treachery of employing foreign soldiers and taxing the general population to advance the cause of Roman Catholicism, aided vigorously by his wife, Queen Henrietta Marla, daughter of King Henry 4th of France. She caused outrage when she as a catholic refused to attend the Coronation of Charles in Westminster Abbey in 1626. The arrogance of Charles is highlighted by the warning which he gave to the House of Commons in that same year, in which he said, “1 think it is more honour for a king to be invaded and almost destroyed by a foreign enemy, than to be despised by his own subjects. Remember that parliaments are altogether in my own power for calling, sitting and dissolution: therefore as I find the fruits of them good or evil, they are to continue or not to be”. Today the same autocratic sentiments are expressed endlessly in this land by those who have no respect for our ancient nation, and which have caused the rise of a new “Cromwell” in the shape of Nigel Farage, leader of the Brexit Party, which has performed magnificently in the recent European elections on May 23rd this year.
At the time of writing the villains in our Parliament show no sign of respecting our democratic vote to leave the European Union. So, it remains to be seen whether this once great political Conservative party will suffer the same fate as its Canadian namesake did just a few years ago. Our useless Prime Minister Theresa May is now gone after three wasted vacillating years of so-called negotiations when she attempted to surrender all of our country’s interests to the dictatorial EU. She conspired with Euro-federalists behind the backs of her own ministers and was at the time of writing, last seen cavorting with Euro-leaders in Brussels like a silly schoolgirl on her first date. Truly sickening.
I will close with the words uttered by Queen Elizabeth le when addressing her troops at Tilbury on August 8th, 1588 – “Let tyrants fear. I have always so behaved myself that, under God, I have placed my chiefest strength and safeguard in the loyal hearts and goodwill of my subjects, and therefore I am come amongst you as you see at this time, not for my recreation and disport, but being resolved in the midst and heat of the battle, to live or die amongst you all, to lay down for my God and for my kingdom, and for my people, my honour and my blood, even in the dust. I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a King of England too, and think foul scorn that Parma or Spain or any Prince of Europe should dare invade the borders of my realm, to which rather than any dishonour shall grow by me, I myself will take up arms, I myself will be your general, judge and rewarder of every one of your virtues. By your valour in the field we shall shortly have a famous victory over those enemies of my God, of my kingdom and of my people.”
Amen, amen, amen.
