Great Britain:Ex PM Tony B liar and Prince Harry Defame Princess Diana

There's room at the top they are telling you still, But first you must learn how to smile as you kill, If you want to be like the folks on the hill, A working class hero is something to be. A working class hero is something to be. If you want to be a hero well just follow me, - John Lennon
GB:Ex PM Tony B liar and Prince Harry Defame Princess Diana

Prince Harry remembered his embattled pals fighting in Iraq as the London concert dedicated to the memory of his mother got underway on a somber note on July 1.:


The 22-year-old prince joined his brother Prince William onstage at Wembley Stadium in front of an estimated crowd of 63,000 after Sir Elton John kicked off the Concert For Diana with a stirring rendition of Your Song.

The two royal princes nervously read from handheld cue cards as they thanked the masses for helping them celebrate what would have been their late mother Diana, Princess of Wales' 46th birthday.

Prince Harry then made a point of saluting friends serving in the Middle East. He revealed, "I would also like to take this opportunity to say hi to all the guys in A Squadron of the Household Cavalry, who are serving out in Iraq at the moment.

The prince added, "I wish I was there with you. I'm sorry I can't be. But, to all of those on operations at the moment, we'd both like to say 'Stay safe.'"
Security issues forced Harry to abandon plans to join the Household Cavalry regiment in Iraq.

The two princes then introduced their late mother's favorite band, Duran Duran, who dedicated hits Wild Boys to the young royals and Rio to the memory of their mother.

GB:Ex PM Tony B liar Prince Defame Princess Diana
on 10th Anniversary of Death

Something about the eulogies to Princess Dianna or 'Lady D' by Ex British Prime Minister Tony B liar and her son Prince Harry on the 10th anniversary of her death did more to defame her memory than celebrate it.

In regards to the liar and war criminal Tony Blair,any
statement from him about anybody or anything would be hypocrisy and self serving subterfuge as always, just like his fellow war criminal and U.S. Terrorist In Chief , W Bush, or 'Busholini', as I call him.In regards to her son Prince Harry using her name to bring praise for British troops occupying Iraq,(and applause for them from the crowd attending the concert in her honor),this was equivalent to using the 10th anniversary of her death to praise the very land mines that kill and injure that his mother worked so diligently to ban !

Cluster Bombs and Land Mines:

The prince may as well have done an ad for the companies and arms dealors that manufacture them ! Or for the U.S. cluster bomb manufacturers of Raytheon,et.al. who made the cluster bombs which lie around and are equal to more land mines than the now deceased princess could ever hope to remove from the planet !Why did the young prince not use the 10th anniversary of her death to denounce them rather than praise a fascist invasion and occupation of Iraq reall y no different or better than the Nazis invasion of Poland and so many other European countries in WW II ! ?

Residents Take on Cluster Bomb Manufacturer on War Anniversary
by Middle East Crisis Coalition
The Middle East Crisis Coalition held a demonstration on Thursday, August 2nd in downtown Waltham to protest Raytheon's manufacturing of weapons designed to indiscriminately kill all living things in a wide area.

Raytheon, headquartered in Waltham, is the biggest missile manufacturer in the world, one of the world's leading manufacturers of cluster bombs, and ranks fourth in terms of military sales.

Well the young prince,under the influence of his father and the Queen Mum after the death of his mother DID wear a Nazi uniform to a party to impress his elite and upper class British peers did he not ?! No wonder the 19th English poet Percey Shelley dropped or was kicked out of that elitist upper class system whether it be Cambridge or Oxford that passes,both poorly and jokingly for an 'education'.

Below are some fragments of British history past as seen by more credible Brits than the young deluded prince and Tony Bliar and reflections upon the death of Princess Charlotte in the lifetime of Percy Shelley and comparisons to her life and death,(she died in childbirth) in comparison with that of Princess Diana.

''The obstetrician, Sir Richard Croft, who had correctly diagnosed a transverse lie of the baby during labour and failed to use a forceps, was distraught. Three months later he shot himself. Thus this single pregnancy is known in medical history as "the triple obstetrical tragedy".[2]

The Princess was buried in St. George's Chapel, Windsor with her son at her feet. Her death was mourned nationally, on a scale similar to that which followed the death of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997. On the other hand, in An Address to the People on The Death of the Princess Charlotte (1817), Percy Bysshe Shelley argued that while her death was very sad, the execution the following day of three men incited to lead the Pentrich Rising was the greater tragedy.....''

In viewing the concert and eulogies briefly on tv I did not see Elton John's real eulogy the the princess which was in truth a beautiful work.Why ? Was even his song,'Like A Candle In The Wind',too controversial, (or too real ?),for the staid upper class British audience he was playing for ? Or perhaps I just missed it...........

from Death of a Princess: the press, the public and the powerful in changing times

Dr Cathy Jenkins

However it should not be assumed that the government of the time was open or tolerant of any but the most supportive news outlets. The Home Secretary, Lord Sidmouth, was part of a government responsible for the Gagging Acts, which banned meetings of over fifty people and allowed for the jailing of radical journalists for seditious libel. Even the Times was cautious in outlining the royal family's history of disasters in the aftermath of Charlotte's death: "... all the vices and villainies of Henry VIII, numerous as they were, sprung from a servile Parliament, and the indulgence of an unrestrained will" (8 November 1817, p.2). The Times at this period appears to have walked a fine line between submitting to the government's oppression of the press and arguing against what it saw as unjust law. At this time Britons were living without the protection of Habeas Corpus, which would normally ensure that those detained by the authorities could have their cases examined by a court. After Charlotte's death, the Times reported that the Prince Regent had released some of those who were under detention, apparently as a means of commemorating his late daughter:

Our opinion is known respecting the confinement of persons under the act for the suspension of the Habeas Corpus. We therefore rejoice the more on learning, that orders were issued on Tuesday night for releasing from various prisons, ten men confined under that suspension" (14 November 1817, p.2).

Not surprisingly, the Times eulogised Charlotte and also reprinted the praise heaped on her by the provincial press:

"Blessed by nature with a masculine understanding - with a mind too firm to be misled by flattery - too great to find pleasure in the noisy nonsense and childish fascinations of fashionable life, too virtuous to participate in its vices ... she would have been the glory of her country, and the honour of her age! (Exeter newspaper, quoted in the Times, 13 November 1817, p.3).

However not everyone held such a romantic view. Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote that the accident of Charlotte's birth had not made her death more worthy of grief, and went on to denounce the hanging, drawing and quartering of three men who had been among 300 people incited by a government agent into a farcical attempt to overthrow the government. The men were executed the day after Charlotte died, and Shelley made it clear that there was a more deserving subject to be mourned:

A beautiful Princess is dead: she who should have been the Queen of her beloved nation, and whose posterity should have ruled it for ever ... LIBERTY is dead. Slave! I charge thee disturb not the depth and solemnity of our grief by any meaner sorrow

-Percy Bysshe Shelley(1817), An Address to the People on The Death of the Princess Charlotte, November 1817

The Ghent Journal, published in Belgium, also provided a more pragmatic view of the consequences of Charlotte's death, pointing out that with the loss of the two future heirs of the House of Brunswick, the people of England might dare start to hope for a new dynasty to rule them. The Journal's comment on the expected race by the Prince Regent's brothers to produce an heir reads not unlike a modern gossip column: "Four of them are unmarried; they must therefore begin by a marriage. It will not, therefore, excite surprise, if, before a year has elapsed, four nuptial ceremonies, and perhaps one divorce, enliven Old England ... " The Times reproduced this article while at the same time condemning its writer as 'the Jacobin of the Ghent press' who had a steady hatred of England and its people (14 November 1817, p.2).

John Lennon - Working Class Hero Lyrics

As soon as your born they make you feel small,
By giving you no time instead of it all,
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school,
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool,
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years,
Then they expect you to pick a career,
When you can't really function you're so full of fear,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV,
And you think you're so clever and classless and free,
But you're still fucking peasents as far as I can see,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
There's room at the top they are telling you still,
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill,
If you want to be like the folks on the hill,
A working class hero is something to be.
A working class hero is something to be.
If you want to be a hero well just follow me,
If you want to be a hero well just follow me.

The Mask of Anarchy
Written on the occasion of the massacre at Manchester.

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

As I lay asleep in Italy
There came a voice from over the Sea,
And with great power it forth led me
To walk in the visions of Poesy.

I met Murder on the way—
He had a mask like Castlereagh—
Very smooth he looked, yet grim ;
Seven blood-hounds followed him :

All were fat ; and well they might
Be in admirable plight,
For one by one, and two by two,
He tossed them human hearts to chew
Which from his wide cloak he drew.

Next came Fraud, and he had on,
Like Lord Eldon, an ermined gown ;
His big tears, for he wept well,
Turned to mill-stones as they fell.

And the little children, who
Round his feet played to and fro,
Thinking every tear a gem,
Had their brains knocked out by them.

Clothed with the Bible, as with light,
And the shadows of the night,
Like Sidmouth, next, Hypocrisy
On a crocodile rode by.

And many more Destructions played
In this ghastly masquerade,
All disguised, even to the eyes,
Like Bishops, lawyers, peers, and spies.

Last came Anarchy : he rode
On a white horse, splashed with blood ;
He was pale even to the lips,
Like Death in the Apocalypse.

And he wore a kingly crown ;
And in his grasp a sceptre shone ;
On his brow this mark I saw—

With a pace stately and fast,
Over English land he passed,
Trampling to a mire of blood
The adoring multitude.

And with a mighty troop around
With their trampling shook the ground,
Waving each a bloody sword,
For the service of their Lord.

And with glorious triumph they
Rode through England proud and gay,
Drunk as with intoxication
Of the wine of desolation.

O'er fields and towns, from sea to sea,
Passed the Pageant swift and free,
Tearing up, and trampling down ;
Till they came to London town.

And each dweller, panic-stricken,
Felt his heart with terror sicken
Hearing the tempestuous cry
Of the triumph of Anarchy.

For from pomp to meet him came,
Clothed in arms like blood and flame,
The hired murderers, who did sing
'Thou art God, and Law, and King.

'We have waited weak and lone
For thy coming, Mighty One!
Our purses are empty, our swords are cold,
Give us glory, and blood, and gold.'

Lawyers and priests a motley crowd,
To the earth their pale brows bowed ;
Like a bad prayer not over loud,
Whispering—'Thou art Law and God.'—

Then all cried with one accord,
'Thou art King, and God, and Lord ;
Anarchy, to thee we bow,
Be thy name made holy now!'

And Anarchy, the Skeleton,
Bowed and grinned to every one,
As well as if his education
Had cost ten millions to the nation.

For he knew the Palaces
Of our Kings were rightly his ;
His the sceptre, crown, and globe,
And the gold-inwoven robe.

So he sent his slaves before
To seize upon the Bank and Tower,
And was proceeding with intent
To meet his pensioned Parliament

When one fled past, a maniac maid,
And her name was Hope, she said :
But she looked more like Despair,
And she cried out in the air :

'My father Time is weak and gray
With waiting for a better day ;
See how idiot-like he stands,
Fumbling with his palsied hands!

'He has had child after child,
And the dust of death is piled
Over every one but me—
Misery, oh, Misery!'

Then she lay down in the street,
Right before the horses feet,
Expecting, with a patient eye,
Murder, Fraud, and Anarchy.


My poem for England:


by Tony Ryals

It started out in England,
On a coal seam that seemed to have no end,
And had repercussions neither Adam
Smith nor Carl Marx could comprehend,
And while we fought over the delusions
of communism and capitalism - it grew,
It was industrialism that always united the two,
Now we pump oil from the earth,
And mine fossil fertilizer to give us birth,
As Bob Dylan said, "None of them along the line
know what any of it's worth",
Fossil carbon is burned, and metal is turned,
Just as in England in the 18th century,
We continue with our entropy,
Fossil carbon is burned and metal is turned,
This basic technology,
Is still our philosophy,
Not communism or capitalism,
This technology so noble,
Even built Chernobyl,
Fossil carbon is burned,
And metal is turned,
This addiction now to oil,
Takes us more to foreign soil,
This world industrialism,
Is a new colonialism,
That can only lead to schism,
Strategic minerals outside our boundaries,
Lead o geopolitical quandaries,
Yet we go on squandering,
What we should be monitoring,
Fossil carbon is burned and metal is turned,
Giving more power to the industrialists- we call it free trade,
Only magnifies mistakes we've already made,
China now rips coal from the ground as fast as it can;
Mexico pumps oil to ship to Japan,
The rest of Asia and South America have the same plan,
It ain't communism or capitalism - its industrialism,
It builds freeways for our cars,
And computers for our wars,
General Eisenhower's military industrial complex,
Remains our Frankenstein - our Tyrannosaurus Rex,
Those who would say we're in a post industrial society,
Should be tested for sobriety,
Or at least show a little more piety,
To their big, unstable brother - industrialism,
