Changes are afoot at the Last Night of the Proms. Not only is this classical-music institution, founded in 1895, guilty of being hideously historic it has also been accused of encouraging people to celebrate being British. (Like there’s anything to be proud of!) The BBC doesn’t wish to cause offence to anyone – unless you’re a white, Conservative-voting licence-fee payer, in which case you deserve it – so this year the hugely popular Rule, Britannia! and Land of Hope and Glory singalong will be replaced by something more in tune with the times. Why not go the full hog and get carefully-adapted versions of those songs, performed by the Amalgamated Choir of Corbynist Comrades and BBC Newsroom staff. All together now!

Land of horrible histories, smothering the free,

How shall we disdain thee, who are sick of thee?

Woker still and woker shall our protests get.

God knows, we are angry, make us angrier yet!

God knows, we are angry, make us angrier yet!

Seriously, when will the self-righteous, monstrous regiment of leftist vandals lay off our culture and traditions? It seems they will not be satisfied until every suspect statue, every rousing anthem and poem written by a morally reprehensible white male (sorry, that’s basically all great poets apart from Emily Dickinson) have been cancelled.

    Flip n HEck – so they have the idiot student union over there as well

    …and let’s be honest, Emily Dickinson is poetry to slit your wrists by…

    Cancel the cancelling.

  4. Geriatric Mayfly

    No anthem more stirring than The Internationale. Even humming it to yourself, as would most BBC comrades, can be an uplifting experience.

    Boris Johnson has said it is time to stop “our cringing embarrassment” about UK history after the BBC’s Last Night Of The Proms was thrown into controversy.

    “If it is correct… I think it’s time we stopped our cringing embarrassment about our history, about our traditions and about our culture, and we stop this general bout of self-recrimination and wetness,” Mr Johnson told reporters.

    Revealing that he had been advised against speaking out on the matter, he added: “I wanted to get that off my chest.”

    Maybe the could play the theme from the TeleTubbies because TeleTubbies love each other very much (in a non creepy way……)

    If they are pulling the plug on Rule Britannia then how long can it be before they pull the plug on “God Save the Queen”?

    Exactly like the ALPBC who sneer at everyday Australians from Kath & Kim to that wowser Shaun Micallef.

    Seriously, when will the self-righteous, monstrous regiment of leftist vandals lay off our culture and traditions?

    When conservatives start fighting for them.

    This is what will drive the Trump victory in the US.

    Latest news from the UK Telegraph:
    “Former Australian PM Tony Abbott to head new UK Trade Board. …with a mission to get trade deals for Britain all over the world.”
    Our loss, their gain.

    The BBC sfavourite tune is “ode to joy “ the national anthem of a country that doesnt exist,it even has aflag to wave not bad for a non country . It is a fracturing collection of 27 countries ,all different. Norway mFaroes ,
    Switzerland ,Monaco ,SanMarino , and Andorra didnt join .,shows a bit of sense , so its not the whole of Europe .

    when will conservatives push back?

    when “conservative” politicians stop appeasing the left every opportunity they get

    Recent Liberal PMs, Tony Abbott, Turnbull (don’t get me started)

    state Liberal leaders like Ted Bailleau were such a dissappointment that they put Liberals out for a generation in Victoria. They did bugger all except fawn to the media and the luvvies and at the last minute signed an infrastructure deal designed to wedge Labor – it did and they didn’t care, cancelled it anyway. How could you spend 4 years believing your stupid road plan would snooker Labor and because of that, they thought they needed no other effort. Beyond stupid.

    if you wonder why Labor rules in Victoria look no further than the last Vic Liberal government

    Who was the person who made the decision? Dalia Stasevska. A very British name isn’t it? This is why you don’t allow any immigrant in to a position of power as any national pride makes them uncomfortable because they still have conections to the previous homeland. This person needs to be sent back.

    Not often you see a womyn wielding the baton. Keeping all those prima donnas in line and telling them we will do it my way does not seem to fit the billing.

  16. Somebody advised the PM not to speak about the matter. With advisers like that no wonder the UK is fast going down the toilet.

    “Revealing that he had been advised against speaking out on the matter”

    Take the Proms from the BBC and give it to a broadcaster which is not ashamed of its homeland.

  18. Genghis

    Gee I hope fervently that the audience stands as one and sings these beautiful songs. That would shut the woke folk up. Maybe they would then cancel the Proms altogether!

    Cultural Marxism from the Frankfurt School. Poisonous, evil people. Notice too how critical theory which criticizes the West is also now focused on white people.

  20. miltonf

    As with the ABC, there is absolutely no reason for the BBC to exist anymore.

  21. Colonel Bunty Golightly

    Until we start to fight back these cancellers will grow stronger. Every little win brings them closer to their objective. Lay down and lose. Everything you believe in will be cancelled if we allow it to happen!

  22. Rex Anger

    @ Diogenes-

    Well done, that man!

    Vale Warwick Davis.

  23. Rex Anger

    Ahem…

    Vale Windsor Davies.

    Helps if I get the name right.

    More BSM Williams goodness…

  24. Crossie

    Revealing that he had been advised against speaking out on the matter, he added: “I wanted to get that off my chest.”

    So much for leadership.

  25. Old Lefty

    The last night, by the way, is full of gentle self-mocking irony. That is something the English do very well (recall Gilbert and Sullivan), but which the woke left can’t even begin to understand.
