The End of All Flesh is Come Before Me

A Conservative defector to UKIP has given some indication as to the calibre of people Britain's Head Boy wants to chivvy back into the blue corner. David Silvester, a Bible-bashing councillor at the London Haystack's old blathering-ground of Henley-on-Thames, has fired off a green-ink missive to the local press blaming Daveybloke for the recent floods. And this is not because Daveybloke's idea of the greenest government ever is a government that blackmails local councils into accepting shale-frackers; nor yet because of Daveybloke's war on the poor, for which the Old Testament prophets might have called down retribution even if the Saviour probably would not. No; the reason for all those soggy proles is the law on equal marriage, which Daveybloke passed despite the objections of six hundred thousand of the nation's holiest citizens. "He has arrogantly acted against the Gospel that once made Britain 'great' and the lesson surely to be learned is that no man or men, however powerful, can mess with Almighty God with impunity and get away with it (sic) for everything a nation does is weighed on the scales of divine approval or disapproval," burbled Silvester, who seems to believe either that the British Empire was an evangelical exercise or that the Gospels were Made in England. Silvester's Conservative replacement had a bit of a gloat; while his new chums have shrugged the matter off with a statement that any councillor can use his position to get his opinions into print no matter how deranged or objectionable those opinions may be, and that this is what makes the United Kingdom such a wonderful, proud, diverse and free country of wog-bashers, gay-baiters and Jesus-freaks. It is as yet unclear whether Silvester is building an ark in his back garden.
