Cry God for Harry, England and St George?

In order to persuade Joe Public that History started 20 minutes ago and there is no other reason for opposing western power than pure unadulterated evil he must be persuaded that he lives in a perfect democracy and a natural free market and therefore shouldn't worry his silly little head about anything; just get behind "our boys".. Thus the use of a feudal aristocrat as a pawn in a massive state intervention. The invisible Jack Boot of the market. This supersized irony will be lost amidst the usual media spinelessness that places Harry-boy at the top of the news and the Shoa in Gaza after the weather and the skateboarding duck.
