Inauguration Inauguration Inauguration



Subtitle: Inauguration  British Style

I think there must have been some interference on our Television feed as I watched the BBC coverage of an important political event on Friday January 20th 2017.

This is what I heard:




Together, we will determine the course of the United Kingdom, and the world, for many, many years to come.



We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.



Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to the outgoing Parliament for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent.



Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another - but we are transferring power from the EC and giving it back to you, the people.



For too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.



EC flourished - but the people did not share in its wealth.



Politicians prospered - but the jobs left, and the factories closed.



The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.



Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.



That all changes - starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.



It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across the United Kingdom.



This is your day. This is your celebration.



And this, the United Kingdom, is your country.



What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.


January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.



The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.



Everyone is listening to you now.



You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.


At the centre of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.



The British want great schools for their children, safe neighbourhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves.


These are the just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.



But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge; and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealised potential.



This the United Kingdom carnage stops right here and stops right now.



We are one nation - and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.



The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all British.



For many decades, we've enriched foreign industry at the expense of the United Kingdom industry;



Subsidised the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;



We've defended other nations' borders while refusing to defend our own;



And spent trillions and trillions of pounds overseas while the United Kingdom's infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.



We've made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.


One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of the United Kingdom workers that were left behind.



The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.


But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.



We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.



From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.



From this day forward, it's going to be only the United Kingdom First, the United Kingdom First.



Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit the United Kingdom


workers and the United Kingdom families.



We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.



I will fight for you with every breath in my body - and I will never, ever let you down. The United Kingdom will start winning again, winning like never before. We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.



We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.


We will get our people off of welfare and back to work - rebuilding our country with the British hands and British labour.


We will follow two simple rules: Buy British and hire British.



We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world - but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.



We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example - we will shine - for everyone to follow.



We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones - and unite the civilised world against Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.



At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United Kingdom, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.



When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.



The Bible tells us: "How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity."



We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.



When the Kingdom is United, the United Kingdom is totally unstoppable.



There should be no fear - we are protected, and we will always be protected.



We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we will be protected by God.



Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.



In the United Kingdom, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.



We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action - constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.



The time for empty talk is over.



Now arrives the hour of action.



Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of the United Kingdom.



We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.



We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.



A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.



It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great the United Kingdom Flag.



And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Birmingham or the windswept plains of Rugby, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.



So to all British, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:



You will never be ignored again.



Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams, will define our the United Kingdomn destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.



Together, we will make the United Kingdom strong again.



We will make the United Kingdom wealthy again.



We will make the United Kingdom proud again.



We will make the United Kingdom safe again.



And, yes, together, we will make the United Kingdom great again.





Thank you, God bless you, and God bless the United Kingdom. Thank you. God bless the United Kingdom.



I trust I have made my Jingoistic point.
