On 21st October- 2005 it will be 200 years since the greatest of all Admirals died after that sniper shattered his spine.
THE WAY IT IS
Wednesday, April 13th, 2005
A Sense of history is the real
THE CHILD stood on the spot where Nelson was hit. A rainstorm had made people run off the deck of HMS Victory, so he was almost alone. The brass plague showed the exact place on the quarterdeck. The child jumped up and down on the plague. Now the father read from a book
‘Lord Nelson was killed by a musket ball from a French sniper.’ The word ‘killed’ always makes children pay attention. If it comes with mental pictures of blood and agony, that’s even better.
‘Did he have his head blown off?’ Ryan, aged eight, asked his father.
‘Not everyone has his head blown off?’ the boy was told.
Then the story was explained and the Battle of Trafalgar, a majestic day in the wonderful calendar of this country’s history came alive.
Ryan could not get enough.
His school was near Kingsworthy, Winchester, and just about every child there had been to Victory.
This was his turn. His father, Kieran, was taking a few days off work because Ryan had some holiday had some holiday time to fill.
When the rain stopped, people climbed back on deck. There were 100 children at least. The next big group where the elderly, struggling with steep steps. The ship was alive.
On October 21st 2005
-it will be 200 years
Since the greatest
of all admirals
died after that sniper
shattered his spine
Ryan tried to lift a cannon ball, but only managed to move it. Did you know anything about Nelson before your father told you, he was asked. He certainly did, he said. There were posters on the school wall.
What do you know about Nelson then? ‘He was a titch.’ He was right. Nelson was only 5ft 4in Kieran was proud this was known.
Simon Willerton was acting as guide.
A survey had said more than half the schoolchildren had never heard of Nelson.
-he was told.
‘That’s not our experience on the ship itself.
Watch the faces coming up the gangplank.
Watch for the excitement,’ he said.
Kieran said he would like to know just where the children who didn’t know about Nelson came from.
‘Can’t say it any more, can you, but I bet a fair few of them weren’t born here.’ That sort of thing always upset statistics is what he thought.
Another guide, Terrence Hill lifted a small cannonball and gave it to a boy. He could manage the 12lb, but not the one at the far end, which was almost 60lb.
‘These guns fired at point blank range,’ Simon said. ‘I mean point blank: 20ft from the enemy ship, as close as 6ft or even touching.
The children were mesmerised by the stories of exploding decks and sailors cut to shreds by huge shards of shattering wood.
Terrence Hill walked the deck, explaining. ‘Were any French killed?’ a small boy shouted.
‘Oh, most certainly thousands more than the British. It was a great day for us.’
Blair would seethe and grind his teeth to hear such
He had to have his arm twisted to support any Royal Navy involvement
in the anniversary at all.
Blair should be made to walk Victory’s old decks and listen to the little hearts beating with pride.
Even some of the 12-year-olds had to duck under the beams of the lower gun decks. ‘How small were the sailors in those days?’
Terrence turned. ‘That’s the most asked question from all people who ever come to see Victory,’ he said.
‘In fact, they weren’t much smaller. The decks were built so low to give stability to the ship when the 104 guns were firing.’ Epic accounts of Nelson’s life raked the Victory like a broadside.
‘If they didn’t feel his heroics when they came aboard, they will by the time they leave,’ Terrence said.
Back at school, Ryan said the boys kept talking about the rats. ‘There were rats here all right.’ Terrence said to a bunch of children with huge eyes and blue and grey uniforms.
HOW did they get rid of them? In a special kind of way,’ he said, with a smile starting to beam. ‘Come on…you boys and girls must have heard of ratatouille.’
An old fellow found the steep stairs a problem. He had to pull hard on the handrail and pass up his walking stick. There were big gulps of breath at the top. Seeing the schoolchildren enjoying themselves cured it.
‘Wonderful they’re so interested,’
he said, with pleasure. ‘The emphasis seems to be to destroy the memory or, at best, to hide our history’.
No one had a chance to hide anything from the group on board.
‘Please, how did they get Nelson back to England? A guide told them it was in a barrel of brandy.
The children went wild. ‘Did they drink the brandy afterwards?’
‘I bet they tried,’ they were told.
More rain made people hurry down to the lower decks. The ship was all about guns. Nelson slept with a big cannon at his feet and one next to his head. The noise of battle stunned your brain and the smell was like anaesthetic.
Ryan had roamed for two hours. Now, tired, he was being edged towards the car park. He had his picture taken through the grey light with Victory right behind him.
Enjoy it? ‘Terrific,’ he declared.
Also he learned some history, his father said.
Which isn’t this Government’s idea at all.
Because apologising for the events of history is what they’re really keen on.

MAINTAIN CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY
IF WE DESTROY OUR
RIGHT OF FREEDOM TO FIGHT A WAR ON
YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH.
WILL THIS CHRISTMAS QUEEN'S SPEECH
LAST IN A
FREE INDEPENDENT ENGLAND -SCOTLAND AND WALES?
HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN ASSURE YOU THAT YOU
HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR FROM BECOMING A
PROVINCE OF EUROPE.
THE QUEEN MAKE IT PLAIN THAT OUR FREE
INDEPENDENT NATION STATE IS SACROSANCT BUT
THAT IF THE PEOPLE WISH TO BECOME SLAVES
-THEN A REFERENDUM THERE MUST BE.
THAT NO ENGLISHMAN SHOULD BE ASKED WHETHER
HE WISHES TO BE A SLAVE OR FREE!
CHRISTMAS WE WILL FIND OUT IF OUR PROTECTOR
'Rights and Liberties'
by HER SACRED OATH
MONARCHY be nothing more than a
PARK in the future
THE TIME FOR BLUNT SPEAKING AS THE VERY
EXISTENCE OF OUR UNIQUE NATION STATE IS IN
We are told on the BBC (Brussels
Broadcasting Service) at 11.30 pm on
Saturday the 23rd December, 2007, that the
QUEEN now has a website which has footage of
the Royal Family in the past and that the
QUEEN is NOT
'Stuck in the past'
far as many patriotic subjects are concerned
we need to remain in the PAST when it
concerns the protection of our
have had and will continue to have but it
must not threaten our very WAY-OF-LIFE our
Common Law of England and all which makes
our country the most unique parliamentary
democracy in the world.
BE NO SURRENDER!
Should the Monarch fail to protect our
inherited RIGHTS and Liberties then we shall
have to fight for a REPUBLIC as
happened in the 17th century because the
Monarch of the day ignored those very
'Rights and Liberties of Englishmen' which
will still survive in the English Speaking
World today in December 2007. How can the
MOTHER of PARLIAMENTS give away what is
already our and our children's
INHERITANCE which cannot be taken away by
PARLIAMENT or the QUEEN.
If the above publicity
exercise is to be used to soften the impact to
the population of the BETRAYAL of their
CONSTITUTION and COUNTRY then it would be
the greatest TREASON by a Monarch since
James II who sold our COUNTRY to the FRENCH
for MONEY and RELIGION.
WE ASK WHAT PRICE ARE OUR RIGHTS AND
THEY ARE PRICELESS!
Choice is Yours!-but time is running out
6 months to be EXACT!
WE are to
THEY are not
WE have more to LOSE
more to GAIN
WE have been clear of dictators from EUROPE
for most of our HISTORY
been cursed with that abomination for most
of their HISTORY and NOW!
Our Queen and the EU Constitution
The Spirit of England
THE ENEMY IS EVERYWHERE
HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH THE II
We now learn
from the Daily Mail COMMENT on Christmas Eve
that the Queen's Speech will cover the
catastrophic fall in Values and Moral
behaviour since the beginning of her 56
-year reign. This has been brought about by
the actions of HER MINISTERS and the greater
number of those in HER PARLIAMENT who have
placed THEIR CONCERNS before the INTERESTS
of THE PEOPLE and NATION STATE.
the fact that HER PEOPLE feel LOST that has
been the direct result of the actions of HER
SUCCESSIVE GOVERNMENTS and the TRAITOROUS
POLITICIANS including PRIME MINISTERS who
have stealthily over the 56 years of HER
MAJESTY'S REIGN have almost achieved their
aim of ENSLAVING the PEOPLE to a FOREIGN
for the marked drop in the number viewing
THE QUEEN'S SPEECH is no doubt because the
mass of people have realised years ago that
the MONARCH is powerless to PROTECT their
WAY-OF-LIFE and events up to now have PROVED
There is a well know saying
'Nero fiddled while Rome burned'
Is it the case on
Christmas Day 2007 while the Monarch
talks our Rights and Liberties are
being taken from us under our very
Of course the QUEEN
under HER CONSTITUTIONAL ROLE can only
'Advise and Warn' HER MINISTERS but when
the matter concerns the very LIFE of an
INDEPENDENT STATE we expect that HER MAJESTY
consider the arrangement to be AT AN END as
it would make a MOCKERY of the PRIME
IMPORTANCE of the MONARCH to protect our
inherited Rights and Liberties which HER
MINISTERS are endeavouring TO GIVE
We as loyal
subjects of the MONARCH who is the living
embodiment of OUR RIGHTS and LIBERTIES
ask at this late stage with only months to
the eradication of a FREE NATION STATE some
veiled comments that HER MAJESTY will
PROTECT our RIGHTS and LIBERTIES.
As for the
MORAL tone of the NATION STATE at this most
crucial time in ENGLISH CONSTITUTIONAL HISTORY this matter
should be left to CHURCH LEADERS who's
responsibility it is to CARE for their
FLOCKS particularly at this FESTIVAL of
MAJESTY'S SPEECH has not been pre-recorded
we ask HER MAJESTY to give those MILLIONS of
HER subjects some hope that their PROTECTOR
has NOT FORGOTTEN THEM.
APPEAL not be answered we can at last
confirm that the MONARCHY is after all
nothing more than a talking shop suitable
for YouTube and therefore nothing more than
Benn's comments about the despotic and
need for a
politician with INTEGRITY and love of
country who has for decades witnessed the
growth of the monstrous creature soon to be
