Let’s just get it out of the way right now: There were too many multi-culti annoyances at the coronation of King Charles III. For me the worst part was this — but it’s not even that bad. Not nearly as bad as the black preacher at Harry’s wedding. (If you click the link and watch the black preacher, note the priceless reactions from Prince Andrew’s daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie.)

The Union Jackal, November/December 2022
Brassneck was a cartoon robot schoolboy from a popular comic I read as a young lad in the 1960s, The Dandy. Older British readers will also remember this comic’s great rival, The Beano, and Dennis the Menace (which was very different from the American Dennis). (more…)
