The fleet lay stretched out across the English Channel, mainsails billowing under an easterly wind, 20 ships in line abreast and 25 deep, filling the water between Dover and Calais. Crowds gathered on the white cliffs of the English coast to watch. But they were not cheering with pride and pleasure – because the display of naval power and military might they were witnessing was not theirs. This armada was not an English one. It was from Holland and it was about to invade these shores.

In the light of Brexit and the possible end of Great-Britain as a single united territorial state, it is time to retell the story of how Great-Britain came about, before the British disappear from history, only to return as English, Scottish, united Irish and a Caliphate London.
Great-Britain, understood as an extension of English power into Scotland and Northern Ireland, is essentially a direct consequence of the Dutch invasion of the British Isles in 1688. On May 11, 1689, William III accepted the Scottish crown.

They are living according to a model that was realized first in the Netherlands after the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, when the Netherlands emerged as the premier Protestant power in the world. It were the Protestant English refugees and the Dutch that constitute the true origins of the United States in the two competing New Netherlands-New Amsterdam (“New York”) and New England-Boston projects. After 1648, the Catholic kings of England and France, envied by the smashing success of the Netherlands, began to plot for the overthrow of the Netherlands, culminating in the frontal assault of both countries, supported by Catholic German bishops in 1672. The Dutch, after terrible 18 months, were saved by the water (intentional inundation) and the destruction of the British and French fleets at the hands of the greatest military genius the Netherlands has ever produced, Michiel de Ruyter.
Recent examples of annual Orange marches, celebrating the event that turned most of the British Isles in a unified Protestant-capitalist country, with central banking and corporate structures, creating the conditions for the British empire, apart from coal and the steam engine in the 2nd half of the 18th century, a homegrown development and 2nd necessary condition for the world’s largest empire in history coming into being.
