Why a goat?

Are you wondering why there was a goat at the funeral of the English Queen? It’s true. I’m surprised too. Judas the goat? Or maybe it’s nothing symbolic at all, just her boyfriend… Or maybe because she’s going to “escape” to hell.

Whatever the reason, the symbolism, the true meaning, I know one damn thing for sure: IF there is enough of my earthly body left to hold a funeral, there will be no goats. 😁

Also from Russian internet – this theme is obviously getting established as a way to perceive royalty.

    I’m very puzzled by this because first of all the uniforms and helmets don’t look like anything I’ve ever seen in the UK. Secondly I seem to remember having seen this image before the funeral. Can anyone throw some light on what it really is?

    Sharp as ever Belyi. Thanks. It was 4 am when I posted. Interesting to find Russians commenting in such a manner.

      Hi Tap

      How did the ED conference go? I’d be interested to see your speech, will there be anything on YouTube or similar?

      So far so good on the German pol predicting catastrophe. Shemitah ends sunset today, 19.00 tonight where I live, according to most accounts. Others say 26th

    Speech was well received thanks Pete, though sadly not recorded. I would have been even more nervous. Debate is freer without recording, I feel. The conference was really good with loads of excellent campaigning ideas now flying around which you will probably see before too long, once the National Council of The English Democrats has approved everything. I coined a new nickname for the party – Join The Teds.

      Great nickname, do you need a quiff and winklepickers to join then? Hope not, I’m as bald as a coot!

      Glad the speech went well. No doubt you will keep us posted. I’d like to know more and so I may get involved if I like the policies

        Grow some thick sideburns Pete and we’ll let you in no trouble….I work on and promote mostly the peace policy, but they have many other excellent policies. Check out the manifesto at http://www.englishdemocrats.party
        Alternatively you could buy a teddy and join the party as an eccentric aristocratic (Brideshead style). Their conferences are usually around Leicester/Nottingham area so not too far from any direction

      • pete fairhurst says:

        Thanks Tap I will check that out

        Sideburns might work for me, don’t know about thick ones though!

        Eccentric aristocrat out is of the question though. No chance of that for me. As a middle class northerner then, I could never maintain the right accent for long enough

    The regiment is the Royal Welsh Guards Tap. Taffy VI descended from a long bloodline of royal regimental goats. Records suggest that The Royal Welch Fusiliers were parading a goat as early as 1777.

    The story is that a goat warned the regiment of the enemy coming after them.
    There is also the Biblical Scapegoat – a goat upon whose head are symbolically placed the sins of the people after which he is sent into the wilderness a Hebrew ceremony. In the Bible the Goat represents Satan’s children and the sheep God’s children. Hence the sheep will be divided to the Right and the Goats to the left for destruction. Yes, the goat is a symbol of evil but the one in the procession had a City of London crown on it not a Royal crown! See pic. below:
