I can’t help noticing some amazing synchronicities with modern political times as I write about the Elizabethan alchemist John Dee and his purported discovery of the recipe for the Philosopher’s Stone in Glastonbury, for my new book, “Stories in the Land.”
John Dee spent more than three years, during the late 16th century, being feted by the minor princes of Europe just as the continent was beginning to bubble up into the Thirty Years War. It was a patchwork quilt then of tiny principalities that were just starting to wriggle out from under the iron grip of the Holy Roman Empire after Martin Luther had nailed his notice to the church door in Wittenberg which called out the corruption of the indulgence-taking popes and priests.
That odious oik Alastair Campbell was on Nigel Farage’s LBC show on Sunday, sporting a t-shirt emblazoned with the word “Reality” and haranguing Leave voters that they’re just fantasists who believe in unicorns.
“Unicorn” seems to be their latest buzzword – replacing the word “Nazi” now that it’s becoming clear who the masters of the Fourth Reich really are. Speaking of Nazis, Peter Mandelson used it again on Radio 4, this morning, fighting to save his EU pension. He was explaining that we didn’t know what we voted for because we are not in touch with reality. This from a man who had to resign from high office in this country TWICE for financial corruption.
Campbell and Mandelson need to go back to their propaganda scriptwriters who obviously don’t realise the importance of the unicorn to our sense of Sovereignty. In Somerset, the spiritual heartland of Britain (or the “land of the nobles”, as King Alfred the Great’s Druidic scribe described it, under the four royal stars of Aldebaran, Antares, Regulus and Fomulhaut) just about every church bears a royal coat of arms featuring the lion and the unicorn.
Welcome to the Hotel California!
Imagine checking out of a hotel, handing over your room key, paying the bill of £39 billion and then being stuck in the foyer, with your suitcases at your feet, because the glass doors won’t open. You ask the receptionist when you can leave but she just smiles and says nothing.
I’m sure you recognise this Eagles-inspired metaphor. It’s why all good MPs, who care about our country, won’t sign this Orwellian-named Withdrawal Bill – a ReMayner’s Charter that could keep us as a member of the EU into perpetuity.
An information war is similar to a bog standard military conflict except that the weapons are much more informational in nature, with agitprop theatre, crisis actors and mass media propaganda used in the place of bombers, tanks and guns.
It seems to me that recent revelations and realisations over the treachery of those who have pretended to represent our best interests for the past 40-odd years has had the same impact, cognitively, as a Shock and Awe invasion, not least in how our government is trying to betray our democratic vote to Leave the EU. And so you’d think there’d be riots on the streets. But there is just this strange sort of silence.
The main driver of Brexit was the desire to get our hands back on the controls of the nation, which had been gradually handed over to the EU since the early 1970s. Mrs May and Co know this. But with the Russia narrative failing in the United States and, in fact, mirroring dangerously back on Trump’s accusers, the government here is now all hands-to-the-pump in a desperate bid to prevent the defeat of the globalist One World Order.
So we’re being told that the referendum outcome was influenced by 416 tweets from “Russian bots”. Even if it were true, 416 tweets constitutes a mere nano-drop in the social media ocean for what you’d need to change hearts and minds on any scale.
But if it wasn’t the Russians, why did the British turn out in droves to vote for Brexit on 23rd June 2016?
In his speech to Congress on Tuesday, Trump was talking about how his movement evolved and he said: “Then, in 2016, the Earth shifted beneath our feet.”
Why did Trump choose that specific metaphor? Does he know that the spirit of Sovereignty rose from the land?
There is some new research out about the voter demographic divide in the EU referendum on June 23rd that casts a new light on what we’ve been told, so far, about who voted to leave the European Union and why.
While similar demographics apply geographically – with the divide being between the metropolitian elites in the major cities and the rest of the country – there is a different story when it comes to voting intentions by age and class.
