BBC Backs Down: Patriotic Lyrics Will be Sung at Last Night of the Proms

Significant victory in the culture war.

The BBC has been forced into a massive U-turn after a public backlash and will now feature the patriotic lyrics to Land of Hope and Glory and Rule, Britannia! at the Last Night of the Proms.

The broadcaster announced last week that the lyrics to the songs would be absent after concerns were raised about their supposed historical links with “colonialism and slavery.”

The infamously woke corporation appeared to have been railroaded by a small vocal minority into the decision following months of Black Lives Matter protests.

They claimed lyrics such as “Britons never, never, never shall be slaves” were racist and bigoted.

This led to more than 100,000 people signing a petition demanding the lyrics be reinstated.

The BBC announced today that it had reversed its decision following comments by Prime Minister Boris Johnson that it was time for the broadcaster to end its “self-recrimination” and “cringing embarrassment” over Britain’s traditions.

“Both pieces will now include a select group of BBC Singers,” according to the BBC’s statement.

“This means the words will be sung in the Hall, and as we have always made clear, audiences will be free to sing along at home.”

Given the BBC’s overwhelmingly left-wing bias, this represents a not insignificant victory in the culture war.

Over the weekend, it was also revealed that new BBC boss Tim Davie would consider axing left-wing comedy shows because he believes the BBC’s output is seen “seen as too one-sided, and unfairly biased against the Tories, Donald Trump and Brexit.”

Make America Ugly Again: Biden Scraps Trump Order Requiring Classical Architecture

America was in real danger of buildings looking nice again

Joe Biden has scrapped an Executive Order by President Trump that required new Federal buildings to be built only in beautiful classical styles.

Trump’s order from December mandated that buildings be designed in only classical, Neoclassical, Art Deco, Georgian, Greek Revival, and Beaux-Arts styles.

The order was an attempt to stop the trend of government buildings being soulless brutalist concrete boxes (see above), rather than constructions reminiscent of the buildings of ancient Athens and Rome.

The order noted that the founding fathers “wanted America’s public buildings to inspire the American people and encourage civic virtue,” and that “They sought to use classical architecture to visually connect our contemporary Republic with the antecedents of democracy in classical antiquity, reminding citizens not only of their rights but also their responsibilities in maintaining and perpetuating its institutions.”

Trump’s order emphasised that “New Federal building designs should, like America’s beloved landmark buildings, uplift and beautify public spaces, inspire the human spirit, ennoble the United States, command respect from the general public, and, as appropriate, respect the architectural heritage of a region.”

America was in real danger of buildings looking nice again. Thank goodness Biden stepped in.

As we have previously highlighted, Brutalist and Deconstructivist styles have been embraced in the US and even in Europe, where classical buildings are torn down and replaced with giant ugly, spirit sapping monstrosities.

Leftists celebrated the scrapping of Trump’s order, reasoning that classical architecture is fascist, art isn’t necessary in modern democracies, and Trump really wanted to make climate change worse… or something:

With cognitive dissonance on max, some even argued that classic architecture is “ugly” :
