PREPARED SPEECH. Scene IV P.108 Penguin Classics Edition.
Certainly England for the English goes without saying : it is the simple law of nature. But this woman denies to England her legitimate conquests, given by God because of her peculiar fitness to rule over less civilized races for their own good. I do not understand what your lordships mean by Protestant and Nationalist ; you are too learned and subtle for a poor clerk like myself. But I know as a matter of plain commmonsense that the woman is a rebel; and that is enough for me. She rebels against nature by wearing man's clothes, and fighting. She rebels against The Church by usurping the divine authority of the Pope. She rebels against God by her damnable league with Satan and his evil spirits against our army. And all these rebellions are only excuses for her great rebellion against England. That is not to be endured. Let her perish. Let her burn. Let her not infect the whole flock. It is expedient that one woman die for the people.
