As always I loved the Last Night of the Proms and thought it a superb touch that members of our winning Olympic teams took part.
But oh what irony the chorus of Rule Britannia! - “Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves! Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.”
With which remnants of our emaciated fleet can we rule the waves? And as to never being slaves, sorry, but in case you haven’t noticed, we are enslaved by the European Union.
But the fervour demonstrated in the Albert Hall and at venues up and down the country shows that proud patriotism still flourishes and renews my confidence that Great Britain will escape the dominating tentacles of the EU.
