Nursery rhymes: RIP?

Could be, and it’s all the fault of us rock-fixated thirtysomething groovers. As this piece from The Guardian suggests, there’s “a whole cast of characters, herded towards the cultural knacker’s yard like the cast of a geriatric Toy Story: Humpty Dumpty, Goosey Goosey Gander, the Grand Old Duke of York, Jack and Jill, a handful of mangy-looking black sheep and poor old Little Miss Muffet, clinging fretfully to her ‘tuffet’.”

    Such contempt for the last threads of British culture with any ties to pre 1960s. Such contempt for any form of basic pride, dignity and love for our country. Should we all just hate ourselves Mr Harris? Is that what you want? You call the honest elderly and devoted families who turn up week after week after week to pay respects to dead British soldiers (who dies beliveing they were fighting for YOU, whether they should be there or not), these minions you laugh at call ‘pitiful’ are largely mums and dads, sisters and brithers of boys who have died in the middle east/ And you call them pitiful and nauseatingly patriotic. What a sad, dissillusioned man you are. In your unbiased reporting of Scottish political parties, the only thing you could breifly say to the BNP was that the ethnic British dont even exist. Native people of the British isles don’t exist? Really? Does that mean native new zealanders, polynesians and americans who have all been in their respective lands for half the time we have been here do not exist? What is wrong with you? You went to univeristy didnt you? Ahh. I did that too, only I kept my mind open and questioned what was forced down my throat. Believe me, when ordinary Brits aere reading your crap they are shaking their heads in shame. But the time PC madness and fear of speaking the truth is coming to an end.
