Love and peace

A few carefully crafted words in response to lord Goldsmith and his proposal to have schoolchildren pledge an oath of allegiance to the queen, and to have a British national day. I say all of this with concern and love.

Fuck off you complete dumbfuck tosser.
Take your fucking proposals and shove them up your tory arse, you twat.
Fuck off you dozy bastard.
Oath of allegiance? To a bunch of thick, overblown, throwback parasites? Stick it up your bollocks you motherfucking asshole.
National day? That’s just what we fucking need, a bit more jingoism, nationalism and division you odious conglomeration of camel turds. How fucking stupid can you possible be, you shitchewing goat molester?

I hope that this helps.

Very well crafted, indeed :)

Geoff said...

I was a goody two shoes at school but I would have refused to pledge such an oath.

What are they going to do? Send kids to the Tower?

Richard said...

Cold caller: I don't have a box for that, Mr Scurra. Shall I tick "No"?

Vicus Scurra said...

Thank you all for your support.
I shall wear it with pride.

Willie Lupin said...

Pretty much what I've just posted myself.
Just a slightly different choice of words....but I endorse every one of them.

Vicus Scurra said...

Thanks Willie. Nice to be in tune with a leading political commentator.

john.g. said...

Harsh, but fair!

ziggi said...

I get the tiniest feeling you didn't approve of this suggestion then Sid, is that what you're trying to say?

Vicus Scurra said...

Ziggi, your perspicacity does you credit.

Rol said...

A carefully reasoned and level-headed response as always.

Prince Philip would be proud.

Donn said...

Sounds like somebody didn't have fun on Commonwealth Day?

Now let us all take a moment to remember the fine young working class lads who gave their all to keep China, India, Botswana, Ghana, Cameroon, New Zealand, Singapore, Tonga, Tuvalu..oh the hell with it... British.

Chris said...

Beautiful, vicus. I must confess a small tear started in my eye, and I'm not even English.

Vicus Scurra said...

Rol. Thank you.
Donn. They all escaped didn't they?
Chris. I think that you will find that your not being English is just a state of mind. A few verses of "God save the queen" and "Jerusalem" might change your mind.

Vicus: Just look how well things have turned out here with our flagwaving holidays and pledge of allegience. Why wouldn't you want to be just like us* (including the accent and the spelling)?

*Here is God's Country.

I, still, ♥ the views said...

amazing!

that is almost exactly what The Teen said, altho I wouold have had to edit his profanities out of the litany if I were to type it up verbatim, to spare your blushes, dear sweet vicus (but the extra blood flow to your cheeks might be good for your complexion)

nice to see you're in touch with The Youth Of Today!

:-)

I, still, ♥ the views said...

(as well as the rest of us)(being in touch, I mean)

Dave said...

Given the performances of our cricket and rugby teams at the weekend, I'm not sure I want to be a supporter of our country just at the moment.

Vicus Scurra said...

Foilwoman! I do find American patriotism scary. In many cases more scary than the extremism in other parts of the world, as the US propaganda machine uses the word "freedom" so liberally. What happens in a US school if you refuse to take the pledge of allegiance?
ISLTV - he is a credit to you. I doubt, however, whether he is representative of his generation. I see too many signs of traditions being maintained to feel sanguine about the attitude of today's youth.
Dave. I don't even think of them as "ours". They are England. I support them when they play well, and have a bias towards them because I know more about the players. I favour India in cricket, All Blacks in rugby and no one in soccer because they are all mediocre. My failure to refer to any team that I follow as "us" or to say "we played well" probably means I am not a true sports supporter. Good.

That was all a bit serious, wasn't it boys and girls? Perhaps I ought to have mentioned the injunctions that prevent me from touching the youth of today. Or said "big tits".

Mike Riversdale said...

Totally uncalled for.
But that's the best bit, no-one called for it and yet you still had the testicular wherewithall to say it.

On ya :-)

anth said...

And why the fuck do you want us to swear an oath of allegiance to that inbred German twat of a queen. We could learn a thing or two from the French on how to treat royalty- Chop their fucking heads off. Fuck the parasitic cunt, and her inbred children. If they're going to live off the state they should get the same benefit as everyone else. I bet they don't have to go down the job centre and apply for 30 jobs a week. Fuck the lot of them.

Vicus Scurra said...

Mike. Nice to hear from you.
Hey, everyone, have you met Anth? He is my personal trainer and ethics counselor.

Richard said...

Anyway, I thought all those self-medication programmes you pensioners undertook in the 60s was meant to mellow you out?

Vicus Scurra said...

Richard, I did call it "love and peace" didn't I? Are you expecting me to walk the walk as well?
Heavy, man.

Donn said...

Nonsense!
If the monarchy were dissolved what would become of those darling Corgis? Those endearing, delightful, comical, scamps are a national treasure. Isn't it true that they singlehandidly captured the hearts and minds of millions and gave hope to the underclass as they skulked about the rubble during the Battle of Britain.

I just realised that the only place where the 'Germans' could comfortably live in exile without drawing too much attention to themselves would be Las Vegas.

ziggi said...

I can tell you weren't a Brownie - we had to swear allegiance to the Queen you know - I hope it doesn't still count, I've gone right off her since 1967.

Betty said...

Problem is, there are too many dumbfuck tossers who want to hear about oaths of allegiance, British national days and the like. I can remember having to sit with a straight face while a work colleague whined on about the need for children to sing the national anthem every day and for every school and workplace to have a Union Jack flying outside. If it "works" in America, then it must work here .. apparently.

I've just posted a semi serious comment on here. I can't quite believe it. Perhaps I should go back to goat molesting and shitchewing.

frontiereditor said...

Ah, the sweet smell of national identity, otr what passes for it.

In 1967, I stood on a windy, damp Cornish road (wait, all I had to say was Cornish road) to watch the Queen drive by while being too small to chuck a large piece of the main Cornish cash crop - rock - through the limousine window. Less than a year later, I escape a good caning at school because the headmaster realized that I was an American and too bereft of intelligence to realize it was a bad thing to say 'the bloody Queen.'

And now I'm back in the USA wondering just how we managed to revert back to the days of the Puritan communities of the 1600's.

I definitely should have defected to Canada at age 6. I would have been happierin my confusion.

Andy Bridle said...

In the interest of balance, it's worth pointing out that, as Attorney General, Goldsmith displayed an admirably open mind, always ready to be persuaded by a good argument. Without this, Britain may not have been legally able to proceed with the glorious liberation of Iraq, BAE executives might have been hindered in their generous supply of bulging brown envelopes to Saudi princes, and public-spirited businessmen may have had their collars felt for their innocent attempts to serve the country with donations to New Labour. So, not all bad then.

Vicus Scurra said...

FFE. Much as I appreciate your visit and comment you did say "revert back". Oh dear. I will have to arrange for some detention for you.

Andy! How nice to see a balanced counter-argument, and so much eloquence. Have you ever met Anth? He could do with spending some time in your company, where he would benefit by learning to use nice language to further his cause.

Carmenzta said...

Well, with those choice words your readership seems to have increased. I'm going to "revert back" to not commenting...

frontiereditor said...

My word, I did post 'revert back' at that point in time

tom909 said...

As a humble servant of Her Majesty, I am appalled and horrified by the lack of reverence shown towards her in this post.
I can think of no greater honour than to stand up and proudly give an oath of allegieance to my queen and country.
Do you know, if I was them I would quietly pack up and go away - surely even they realise what a load of bollocks this whole 'royal family' myth is, and what an outdated load of shite this whole concept of 'national pride' is too.
