I’ve been saying in recent weeks—not only in relation to Britain’s Iran hostage situation humiliation, but prior to it, in relation to Britain’s utter lack of will to control immigration and its passage of a sweeping homosexual rights law that will put Catholic adoption agencies out of business—that Britain is dead. Now John Derbyshire, in a lament for his native country, is saying it too.Unlike him, however, I don’t write Britain off forever. It is not a biological organism, which, once it is dead, is dead. It is a nation, and, if it wanted to, could come back to life.
