Recent news reports showing glimpses of Enoch Powell's 'Rivers Of Blood' prophecy serve as a reminder to us all just how much our country has changed for the worse in recent decades. Despite the controlled media's best efforts to spin reports on the recent race riots, a truer picture of 'multicultural' Britain has at last been shown to the wider public.
It's little wonder why our people are so nostalgic and yearn for happier and more traditional times. Instead of embracing Government social engineering 'projects' and falling for it's poisonous propaganda, an ever increasing number of our folk are rediscovering Britain's past. On Bank Holiday Monday we did just that when we visited the 2011 Shrewsbury Steam Rally.
The two day event held in the beautiful farming landscape just outside the town, was a great display of Britain's transport, agricultural and industrial heritage. There were more than 1,000 exhibits including steam engines, cars, motorcycles, fairground organs, an olde time fair, birds of prey and a craft fair.
A local newspaper reported a boom in interest with a record 20,000 attending. Event organisers said that there had been a lot more young people and TV programmes such as the Victorian Farm series (filmed on the Shropshire estate of Acton Scott) had helped inspire people to get outdoors and catch a glimpse of life in years gone by.
Footnote: Unlike a certain other event that was held on the same day in a more... shall we say... 'cosmopolitan' part of the country, there were no reports of violence, robberies, drug dealing or attempted murder!
