I was surprised yesterday that the Sunday Times had very little coverage of the fact that the Tories won the popular vote in England.
Labour has rejected the rule of equality and, even more unwisely, has discriminated against the largest, most powerful and richest nation of the United Kingdom. The English in America did not accept such discrimination in 1776. They will want equality now, so that they, like the Scots and the Welsh, can run their own affairs.
That significance of that passage should not be under-estimated. The American Revolution emerged out of the English radical tradition of the Levellers and the Commonwealthmen. Perhaps it’s now time for that tradition to take its rightful place in the land of its birth.
