Congratulations Prince William and Kate Middleton!

First, Congratulations are in order for Prince William and his new fiancée Kate Middleton.  Most people have a fondness for Prince William, and Miss Middleton seems like a lovely woman, so this is a great time to be a Brit.  
It is also something that is necessary for the country as a whole.  It has been a while since there has been anything to get really excited about in Britain - the last election wasn't exactly a thrill a minute, and so this provides a much needed boost to Britain as a nation. It also reminds us of what we stand for, apart from the fluffy buzzwords of the left - "Oooh Britain is all about tolerance and diversity....."

Of course, the left are miserable about the royal wedding.  Certainly, there will have to be a carefulness about the wedding and where the money will come from - after all it would look a tad odd to be having an overly-lavish wedding during a time of cut backs and job losses.  However, in typical leftish fashion, they are pushing a decent point way too far.  This is because they have a very narrow vision of what public money should be spent on - unions and welfare mostly.  If it doesn't give the State more power, then it is a total waste of money.  Therefore under the banner of "fiscal responsibility" (giggle, snort) they are fighting tooth and nail against this wedding, or at least trying to make everyone feel guilty about it in the process.

The line the left are playing is "How dare you spend all this money of these horrible wealthy rich people, when there are so many poor starving in the Dickensian nightmare that is Tory Britain."  Ok, I exaggerate, but only slightly!  Expect rags like the Guardian and the Mirror to be making snide remarks about lavish wedding dresses in contrast to those who can "barely afford to buy clothes at all."  The implied notion is that we shouldn't have this wedding at all, and should instead throw yet more money into the bloated welfare state.

The problem for the left is that there are already lots of reports coming through that this wedding will easily beat its cost in terms of the stimulus that it will create.  One retailer has predicted that while the wedding will cost in the region of £50 million (small change by government standards), it will boost the economy by at least £620 million.  This will be done through the gifts and souvenirs, through food and drink purchases for various parties and celebrations, and through a boost in the tourist industry as well as Britain's standing abroad.

This will be an international event that will put Britain at the centre of the world, at least for a month or so, which is something that Britain has been lacking since it has been crippled by the lefties determined to turn us once again into a socialist state.  This is a real opportunity to give Britain a proper stimulus, as opposed to all those phoney slush funds we have been seeing on both sides of the Atlantic.

It will improve Britain's standing, improve Britain's economy, and give the British people a pride of their nation once again.  These are all things that the leftists will find difficult to put up with, so expect an onslaught of anti-monarchist sentiment to rise up through the lefty blogs and papers over the next six or so months.  It is important that we do not let these people spoil what could be an exceptional moment for our country!

  1. Do you know why most Americans admire the English? It's because we (normal people)feel that history and tradition are very important. If you don't know where you come from, how can you learn and move forward? I can only trace my ancestery back 3 generations on my fathers side, and can't find anything out about my mothers, and both my parents have passed on. It blows my mind that William can trace his lineage all the way back to the Tudors, and even Kate can go back 5/6 generations. And nobody puts on a wedding like a royal family. They are beautiful.

    Don't let the lefties get you down, Adam. You know the definition of insanity, I'm sure. And they are all insane.
