The Abolition of Britain: From Winston Churchill to Princess Diana

Synopsis

The prominent English social critic Peter Hitchens assesses the period between the death of Winston Churchill and the funeral of Princess Diana, a time he believes brought disastrous changes in English life. The current generation, he says, looks back on Britain's illustrious past as if it were a foreign country. They have allowed a tradition stretching back hundreds of years to be replaced with "the most intolerant system of thought to dominate the British Isles since the Reformation." Accepted notions of patriotism, faith and morality have been overthrown, along with fundamental notions of what it means to be a citizen.
