Barbados sheds imperial monarchy

barbadosmottley.jpg

Countries around the world are re-examining their post-colonial identity after Barbados moved to remove the English queen as the head of state. The island has said that it is planning to become a republic as it moves to withdraw from the Commonwealth and “leave its colonial past behind”.Most of the population of Barbados have ancestors who were victims of colonial slavery. It is estimated that between 1627 to 1807, some 387,000 Africans were shipped to the island against their will by English slave traders. Continue reading

The Queen’s Speech – Eva Dance

We are not in this together, because the authorities in command have for thirty years unleashed a vicious anti-social agenda on society. The motto of the ruling classes today is: All for One. That’s it.

For only the fifth time in her 68 years as “Queen of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland” and “Head of State of the entire British Commonwealth of Nations”, on Sunday, April 5, Elizabeth II gave a special address “to the nation and to her subjects”. The monarch has now cancelled the artillery salute on the occasion of her birthday for the first ever time as “inappropriate.” 

The media and pundits, including those employed by CBC and CTV,  lauded the speech to the skies saying that, even though it was less than five minutes long, its “We’re all in this together” message was very sincere and heartfelt and brought tears to their eyes. Continue reading

This Day. 400th Anniversary of US slavery

Four hundred years ago, a Portuguese ship named the São João Bautista traveled across the Atlantic Ocean carrying a load of captive Africans from Angola, in southwestern Africa, to the “New World.” Seized by two English pirate ships, the captive Africans ended up in the British colony of Virginia, founded just 12 years earlier, the first permanent English settlement in North America established by the Virginia Company of London in 1671. Only twenty survived the journey. Jamestown, Virginia soon became one of the main areas for the arrival of enslaved Africans. The sale of the 20 Africans to the owners of tobacco fields began the Atlantic slave trade on which the United States was built. Continue reading

A million extinctions eclipsed by one royal grandbaby

Sea turtle image from IPBES report

As many as 1 million of the estimated 8 million plant and animal species on Earth are at risk of extinction — many of them within decades — according to the scientists and researchers behind a new UN report. The assessment by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services is the most comprehensive review to date of the damage humans are causing to biodiversity. The group’s chair, Robert Watson, says: Continue reading

Prince William in Israel: The British royal family’s ‘complicated history’ with Nazi Germany

Prince William is following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather and visiting the East Jerusalem tomb of his great-grandmother, a personal touch to the promotion of British collusion with Zionist Israel.  But while Princess Alice may have sheltered a Jewish family during the war, three of her daughters were married to prominent Nazis | DIANA KRAFT in Haaretz Continue reading

For your information: British royal wedding II

Front page of The Sun newspaper on January 13, 2005 shows a photograph of Britain’s Prince Harry wearing a red and black swastika armband and an army shirt with Nazi regalia at a friend’s fancy dress party, which he attended on January 8, 2005 – two weeks before Queen Elizabeth was due to lead Britain’s holocaust memorial events. He later apologized.

Once again, the media has been carrying wall-to-wall coverage fawning over yet another royal wedding held on May 19 of the Victoria Day weekend formerly celebrated by imperial decree of 1904 throughout the British Empire as Imperial Day to honour Queen Victoria’s birthday. Every hook is being used to catch one’s attention: a “Canadian connection”; a multimillionaire “American princess”; the war pilot and Invictus Games of “wounded warriors”; a dysfunctional family; “expectations” of the new African-American member of “the family”; the royal bling, etc.  Continue reading

The dodgy ‘Duke of Cornwall’ and his dirty dealings

Renewed focus on the “Duke of Cornwall” and his so-called “human rights” – Following a British Supreme Court ruling that the correspondence of the Prince of Wales to government must be released, the Kernow branch of the Celtic League assert that the activities of his estate in Cornwall should also come under focus, and they want people to get involved.

Monstrous hypocrisy: Duke Charles and the greening of Cornwall

Incensed to read a recent article in the Independent newspaper – ‘Prince warns of planet in crisis’ Independent The News Matrix: Thursday 26 February 2015 – the people of Cornwall responded in kind.

Duke Charles of Cornwall – not to forget Prince of Wales and Duke of Rothesay; Prince and High Steward of Scotland and Lord of the Isles; Admiral in the Royal Canadian Navy, General in the Canadian Army and General in the Royal Canadian Air Force*; and Extra Knight of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle – is reported to have addressed the Royal Society in London on Feb. 25 warning that global warming is “already causing ecosystem collapse, loss of habitation, poverty, starvation, migration and conflict.” The prince declared: “Actions which are good for the planet are also good for human health.”

The monarch-in-parliament and the use of the royal prerogative

The Use of the Royal Prerogative

Royal assent, royal consent – The beneficiaries of the Royal Prerogative

The archaic character of the Westminster parliamentary system has been further exposed by the publication on January 15, 2013 of a previously confidential Whitehall pamphlet entitled “Queen’s or Prince’s Consent,” publically indicating for the first time the extent to which senior royals are asked to give their consent to legislation. The 23-page document, now available on the Cabinet Office website, details situations where this Royal Consent is required and gives various examples where it has been sought. Continue reading

Supplier of nickel to the Third Reich, propagandist against the Third Reich

By Tony Seed with Albert Noden

On November 21, 2014 the Harper government joined the United States and Ukraine as the only three countries voting against the annual United Nations anti-Nazi resolution, initiated in 2005. Proposed by Russia, the resolution condemns attempts to glorify Nazi ideology and to deny German Nazi war crimes, including the Holocaust. Harper is actually following in the footsteps of his predecessors, as we document further in this post.

On the eve of the Second World War, during the height of the collusion between Britain and Nazi Germany known as appeasement for a war against the Soviet Union, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth made a 44-day state visit in 1939 to Canada. The prime minister, William Lyon Mackenzie King, had himself met with Hitler and other top Nazi leaders in Berlin in 1937 and expressed his frank admiration for the leader of the Third Reich and its fascist program.

Scottish independence: ‘We are not amused.’

Steve Bell in The Guardian, 16 Sep 2014

Steve Bell in The Guardian, 16 Sep 2014

15 September 2014: The British Queen Elizabeth II warned voters to “think very carefully about the future” before the Scottish independence referendum. House of Windsor soft-speak for “don’t dare vote Yes.” The Windsor family has holiday homes at Balmoral Castle, Aberdeenshire and Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh. The royal injunction issued as part of the fear-mongering “Better Together” campaign reminds us that the fiction that the “constitutional monarch has no power” and that the Queen of England is just a “titular head of state” and not involved in politics – a romantic institution of another supposedly “shared” British institution that is not of much relevance – is a fraud.

Reality check: The Windsor family’s Nazi king of England

Original source: London Review of Books, Vol. 10 No. 16 · 15 September 1988, pages 12-13 | 3450 words

A GREAT MANY BOOKS and articles have been published recently about the possibility that a former head of MI5 was the agent of a foreign power. Could there be anything more horrible, more unthinkable? Well, yes, according to Charles Higham’s extraordinary biography, there could. He suggests that not long ago the most dangerous agent of a foreign power was the King; and the second most dangerous was the King’s lover. Both were sympathetic to, and possibly active agents for, Mussolini and Hitler at a time when the British Government was about to declare war on Italy and Germany. Continue reading

Obscene wealth of Charles Windsor

usaid-cashThe feudal Windsor monarchy has held on to its feudal aristocratic privileges with the full support of the British state. The Windsors deny every citizen the right to be recognised by the state as equal with every other citizen. They take tens of millions every year from the pockets of the people. They interfere in the government of that country and have powers in the Canadian state as sovereigns. The sychophantic fawning of the media over the current Canadian tour of Charles Windsor and the worshipping of the Windsors is nothing less than the degradation of democracy and sovereignty.

Reality check: Windsor family – the admirers of fascism

Charles Windsor, the heir to the British throne, told an individual at the Canadian Immigration Museum in Halifax on Monday May 19th that, “Putin is doing just about the same as Hitler,” ostensibly relating to the accession of Crimea to Russia in March. The venue was a meeting with World War II veterans organized by the Harper government. His press entourage was quick to sensationalize the seeming “private” comment.

Happy Empire Day!

On this day, Black and brown colonized people like my mother were forced to march around in the blazing heat of their occupied countries waving the Union Jack and singing about how Britons never would be slaves! Then the governor of the colony would make a speech about how noble the ruler was and how grateful they should be for being allowed to be second class people in an Empire they could die for but not be equals in! Then they cheered and sang God Save the Queen! Hooray!

Sycophancy for yet another royal tour

The British royals are in Australia, yet it is the Canadian media that seems to be the most exhilarated. CBC and CTV features daily, if not hourly, coverage of Will and Kate shaking hands with politicians, waving at relatively small crowds of royal watchers and giving dull and predictable speeches about the mutual love and respect Britain and Australia have for one another: gushing colonials eager to name another road or hospital after their British betters and future sovereigns. All backed by fawning commentary by inhouse Royal “experts.” But then Canada, like Australia, does not have a Constitution where sovereignty is vested in the people. If you want to live in a nation that does not bend the knee to any other, then get active and support a program of democratic renewal that includes a new and modern constitution.

The royals, US infantile propaganda and the republic

The American social and aristocratic class is as rigidly hierarchical as the British monarchy that the US media seems to deride. In fact, evidence shows that those born into the top one per cent continue to enjoy the benefits of the system far more than those at the bottom. The system favours the top one per cent disproportionately to the detriment of others.

By TONY SEED

(July 25, 2013, revised April 1, 2021) – THE omnipresent American media may be cynically mocking the so-called royal baby fever and paparazzi in the United Kingdom after Kate Middleton gave birth to a son on Monday, but its social structures and aristocratic class system are just as fossilized as that of any feudal monarchy and the House of Windsor with its obscene wealth. According to Bruce Covert of ThinkProgress, a think tank linked to the Obama faction, American children have very little chance of climbing out of the social class they’re born into.

Canada Day with the royals (II): Reject Harper’s fascist one nation politics

Part two of a two-part series by TONY SEED. Part one is here.

mediaculpaheader.stretched(July 1, 2001) – THE Canada Day editorial of the Halifax Chronicle Herald is an incoherent rant pregnant with veiled threats against the Canadian people emanating from divine right.

HALIFAX (July 1, 2011, revised July 4) – THE July 1st headline of the Halifax Chronicle Herald leaps into never-never land with its banner of another royal tour: “Canadians smitten [1] with royal newlyweds.” The entire front page of the second section is also given over to fawning coverage of the alleged affair. Then you read more carefully. “A small crowd … at the government airport.” A “walk-about” amongst tourists to the nation’s capital with nothing else to do but touch the elephant!

Reality check: The Windsor family wealth

THE British royal family, the Windsors, refuse to disclose their personal wealth. They also protest that property Elizabeth Windsor holds as the “sovereign” should not be included, although she has the exclusive use of it and will be able to pass on that use to her children.

In 2008 the Times newspaper Rich List placed Ms Windsor at number 264 in its report of the UK’s wealthiest individuals. Her personal wealth was put at £320 million. (Note: £1 = $1.6) Continue reading

For your information: British royal wedding

Constitutional Monarchy – Remnant of medievalism and colonialism that should be abolished – not celebrated.

THE monopoly media are bombarding Canadians with images of a royal wedding. This is not innocent or detached tabloid journalism having a bit of fun. It is an offensive spectacle of obscene wealth and decadence and a crude reminder to Canadians that they are subjects of a foreign monarch. All the while, it diverts attention from the fact that Canada’s democratic institutions are not based on the consent of the governed but on the Royal Prerogative.
