A few notes from our friends across the pond on what Mitt Romney should support if he was really hell bent on rebuilding bonds with our Anglo-Saxon roots.
In short order, thanks to the The Guardian for this. . .
Want to be more like the Anglo-Saxons?
1. Stop destroying the English Language with Bushisms and Palinspeak
Its greatest threat these days is probably the former Republican president's "Bushisms".
2. You should be for MORE immigration, not less
It was sixth century British monk Gildas who saw the coming of the Anglo-Saxons as God's punishment for the sins of the Britons – an apocalyptic view that would be right at home in the delusional wing of the Republican party, and proof that the basic British distrust of foreigners was alive and well long before the barbarians invaded. If the Anglo-Saxons taught us anything, it is surely that we are all foreigners in our own country. Perhaps the Republicans can draw some inspiration from that.
3. Time to bow down to Royalty like a good peasant
One notes that the same servility to rulers applies to our Anglo-Saxon cousins across the water and that, no matter what their political hue, monarchs are accorded the respect due in the office of president.
