“… no I never heard them singing, before there was Q.”
Before there was Q, there was B. B first appeared in Harper’s Weekly in 1860. Thereafter, in 1862, he felt called upon to reveal all, he says, due to the sorry treatment afforded Sidney E. Morse, Esq.
Sidney E. Morse had vouched for the 1860 Harper’s Weekly article written by B, and Sidney had received flippant and disparaging treatment from the New York Tribune. This shoddy treatment aroused the ire of B, who went on to write the 1862 pamphlet, The present attempt to dissolve the American union: a British aristocratic plot.
The brother of Sidney E. Morse was Samuel F.B. Morse, the telegraphy pioneer.  Besides telegraphy, Samuel F.B. Morse was a “conspiracy theorist”, having authored the book, Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States. For these two reasons, I ascertain that B was a nom de plume of Samuel F.B. Morse.
B begins his 1862 pamphlet by pointing out that Britain “has ever taken a most prominent part” in “all that relates to African Slavery.” Every measure of the British government, “whether in favor of slavery or against slavery, has been enacted by her, directly or indirectly, for the promotion of her own material interests, and chiefly to increase or maintain the power of her oligarchy.” 
Around 2015, a trove of documents laid bare the names of Britain’s 46,000 slave owners. Previously, British connections to slavery had been “largely airbrushed out of British history…” 
Also “airbrushed out of history” had been the extent of New England slave trading. There is something rotten about The Sacred Cod, the carved wooden symbol that adorns the chamber of the Massachusetts House of Representatives. Cod fished up offshore New England and rejected by both the local and the European markets was shipped to Barbados, Jamaica, and other British colonies to feed slaves. Native American (“Indian”) slaves were sold in Bermuda or Caribbean colonies in exchange for Africans shipped back to New England. 
You can see how “new” England and “old” England were working hand-in-glove.
During the War Of 1812, the “new” England Federalists considered seceding from the Union and forming an alliance with “old” England. The Marats, the Dantons and Robespierres of Massachusetts were in the same pay, and under the same orders, as the Reign Of Terror gang in France, believed Thomas Jefferson. 
And now, it is largely these “new” Englanders who are so pious and preaching to the rest of us. Remember, it was the “new” Englanders who claimed to be suddenly shocked – shocked! – about slavery and were acting holier-than-thou towards the South. Now, through their Ivy League bastions of moral judgment, they constantly belittle the rest of us.
Both “old” England and “new” England are associated with sea-going vessels which roam the seven seas. Hence comes their culture of globalism. The “new” England heavily favored Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Her opponent, Donald Trump, was heavily favored by the region associated with late-19th century populism.
