100% Rubbish

It is generally true that while Conservatives have at least a vague idea what the Left believes, Liberals don’t have a clue about Conservatism. For proof of that, consider C4’s ‘100% English’. This was the latest in a long line of programs in which English (always English) people have their DNA tested, producing the revelation that many British people have foreign ancestors.

In case you’re wondering, this is supposed to be devastating for the Right. I understand future programs will debunk global warming sceptics by proving that fire is hot, and counter Christianity by showing that religious people still die.

For the benefit of any hard-of-thinking Liberals, I’ll spell it out: the Right doesn’t support Britain because it believes in a deranged 19th Century view of racial purity. It supports Britain because it believes in British culture, the British way of life and the things that make Britain so, well, British. Like the bald bloke says, you may like it, you may not, but this is where the debate is at, not some insane Liberal caricature of lunatics with genealogy charts.
