Britain Returns to Two Parties

The United Kingdom has largely returned to an era of two parties. Having been divided up between several causes over the past few years, the Liberal Democrats shrank, UKIP was wiped out, and voters moved back to the Conservatives and Labour.

With London area residents opposed to Brexit, they moved left. Scotland moved right. Everyone else just shuffled around. It was a disaster for Theresa May who never should have been Prime Minister in the first place. She was the milquetoast candidate who everyone settled on, but she stood for nothing and sat around doing nothing as terror was on the rise in the UK. She completely botched an election she called to advance her agenda. Those around her should be fired and driven from politics permanently. She herself needs to step down.

The Tories will keep control, but by the barest margin. Their majority will again be a coalition. They’ll have a hung Parliament, which I assure the President is not an off color joke about his tiny hands. Jeremy Corbyn, the nutter who makes Bernie Sanders look mainstream, will be able to gloat. But we should not see this as a win for Corbyn so much as a loss for May. She was rejected. He was not embraced.

One thing that we should note is that it appears in the London area it was not just Brexit that saw the Tories lose. A certain world leader with a Twitter candidate attacked the mayor of the city after a terrorist attack. That allowed said mayor to create a wedge issue against the Prime Minister over a state dinner invitation.

It is time for Prime Minister Boris Johnson, though I still wish we’d get to see William Hague as Prime Minister. That day, however, is past.

President Trump and ISIS Have Entered An Unlikely Alliance

It is pretty clear ISIS is trying to affect the British elections in favor of Jeremy Corbyn. They know he is both weak on crime and weak on immigration. Despite Corbyn’s rhetoric, the moment he becomes Prime Minister, Britain will surrender to ISIS and Corbyn will probably lead a good faith effort to veil the Queen.

Though accidentally, it appears Donald Trump has joined ISIS in their effort to elect Jeremy Corbyn. Trump’s self-centered dumbassery on Twitter has started a state crisis in Britain. His attacks on London’s Mayor have allowed Labour in Britain to demand a withdrawal of Trump’s state visit. Trump’s unpopularity coupled with the invitation by Theresa May has put May in a very difficult position right before an election that should have given the Tories a clear majority.

Donald Trump and ISIS are working in concert, though not coordinated, to get Jeremy Corbyn elected. ISIS is doing so intentionally. President Trump is just a dumbass with a Twitter account who cannot help himself.

The War On Easter? Furor Erupts In The UK Over The “Cadbury Egg Hunt”

Every December we hear about the War on Christmas, and often those who complain about the secularization of the Christmas season have a legitimate beef. It’s often easy to see the forces at work trying to strip Christmas of anything remotely Christian.

But we don’t really hear that much about a War on Easter (and Passover, for that matter). After all, it seems as though the secularists would feel more threatened by the celebration of the resurrection of God’s Son.

To see the creeping War on Easter, look no further than our cousins across the pond. In the UK, this year’s National Trust Easter Egg Trail has a new name – The Cadbury Egg Hunt. Notice what word is missing? The Church of England did, and they’ve accused the National Trust and sponsor Cadbury of “airbrushing faith.

For their part, Cadbury has said, “We invite people from all faiths and none to enjoy our seasonal treats.” But the church isn’t letting them off the hook.

A spokesman for the Church of England said: “This marketing campaign…highlights the folly in airbrushing faith from Easter.”

It was also met with anger by the Archbishop of York, who said the decision to remove the word Easter from the egg hunt logo was tantamount to “spitting on the grave” of John Cadbury, the chocolate firm’s original founder.

He told the Daily Telegraph: “The Cadburys were Great Quaker industrialists. If people visited Birmingham today in the Cadbury World they will discover how Cadbury’s Christian faith influenced his industrial output.

Over at Christian Concern, Tim Dieppe told a radio interviewer, “We’re not having a public holiday to celebrate a brand. We’re having a public holiday to celebrate the most momentous event in history – the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

Both major parties of the British government have decried the National Trust and Cadbury’s decision. Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May – the daughter of a vicar – said, “I think the stance they’ve taken is absolutely ridiculous, and I don’t know what they’re thinking about, frankly. Easter is a very important festival for millions of Christians across the world.”

Her Labour counterpart, Jeremy Corbyn, said, “It upsets me because I don’t see why Cadbury should take over the name, but that’s what it’s done. It’s this commercialization gone a bit too far.”

For what it’s worth, both May and Corbyn are members of the National Trust. Many other members of the National Trust have threatened to cancel their membership in light of the controversy:

It’s nice to see Britons rising up against these politically correct word games that deny the religious origins of such an important holiday – especially in a nation that has grown less religious and more secular.

The National Trust has replied to Twitter complaints with a stock reply denying their downplaying of Easter, and they and Cadbury have snuck references to Easter into their secondary marketing. But is it all too little, too late?
