BEYOND TERROR : ANNE MARIE WATERS

 

Anne Marie Waters new book , Beyond Terror , has just gone on sale in the last week. The book is available on Amazon but none of the major book shops or indeed any book shop seems to intend stocking it. Anne Marie and the For Britain Movement seem to have just accepted this which I believe is a great mistake. If you intend buying it then go to your local bookshop first. If they refuse to order it for you explain to them that you will not give them your custom in the future and that you will advise your family and friends to do likewise. If they do refuse please let me know and I can create a data base of such book shops. Most book shops in the UK and Ireland are more than happy to stock or order Mein Kampf or the Communist Manifesto after all. There is no ban on this book so there is nothing to stop any shop ordering it for you. And there is no law against organising a boycott or campaign to encourage people not to support a shop which refuses to serve you in this matter.

If you let people walk over you then they probably will. And if your local book shop is not up to date in regard to fire or safety standards ( and you would be surprised at the number of shops who are really carless in such matters ) then it is your duty to report them. If any book shop feel they need to protect their customers against For Britain then you can act with equal concern for your community by making sure that they in turn comply with ALL the appropriate regulations that might apply to their business.  The reason many shops will not stock Anne Marie’s book is they are afraid of the consequences. Think about that. Presumably they feel that the For Britain Movement political party is not going to make a fuss and maybe they are right.

You will find a good review of the book the Oyia Brown blog.

BREXIT RALLY LONDON 23/6/2018

I have just been watching this Brexit rally on Youtube. There , out in front , is Gerard Batten at the head of the march shaking hands with the people and looking every inch the leader. But where is Anne Marie ?  UKIP flags flutter in the breeze behind Batten but nothing with the name of the For Britain Movement on it. It is all too familiar and getting to be a habit. Batten knows how to capitalise on this  upsurge of popular discontent. He does it well. He is not the kind of man to let the grass grow under his feet. He stands at the front – like a man who knows his place and takes it. But where is Anne Marie ?

Batten is doing everything right. He is the consummate politician. He knows all the tricks and does not miss a single one. He grabs with both hands every opportunity that presents itself and milks it for everything its worth and it is working.  He is winning people over. People are being taken in by this man. He is intelligent , competent and cynical. It is sickening to watch him feed off the anger of the ordinary people of britain. UKIP will sell them out in a heartbeat and not hesitate to call them fascists and racists when they feel it to be in their political interest.  They have done it to Anne Marie and to every decent person who ever was associated with the EDL. It is , as Anne Maire herself has said , nauseating to watch how Batten and UKIP have embraced Tommy Robinson – a man they were more than happy to condemn as a racist and fascist untill they saw which way the wind was blowing.

Gerard Batten is a real problem for Anne Marie Waters and her For Britain Movement. People who might have been expected to join For Britain are now looking to Batten for leadership. Every time I go on Youtube or social media I hear more and more people say that Batten is the man. He , they believe , is the only one speaking out bravely  against Islam and the mainstream. People are gullible and Batten knows how to capitalise on their gullibility. It is a sad fact that people , ordinary people , are often easily taken in. The history and ongoing success and popularity of the Labour Party is living proof of that. And for some reason or other people seems to like Batten.

Batten is intelligent but he is by no means exceptional. He is clever but behind it all he is a political lightweight. He would never have made it to the top in any of the mainstream parties. He is a big fish in a little pond. Personally I don’t rate him at all. But in the land of the blind , not to mention the stupid , Batten is king. Anne Marie seems to be concentrating her attention on building up the branches which is the right thing to do and she seems to be doing it very well but she is letting others take the initiative and often in a very public way as we all saw in Lewisham East and as we saw today. Anne Marie is very effective when she goes on the attack and she needs to meet the challange that Batten presents head on.

GERARD BATTEN’S NEW MEN

Three prominent Youtubers , Sargon of Akkad , Paul Joseph Watson and Count Dankula have very publicly joined UKIP. Between them they have a nominal 2,300,000 followers however when you factor in everything the actual number is probably closer to 1 million which is still a substantial figure. This means that appx. 1 million people will hear a constant flow of positive things about UKIP and some level of negative things about the  For Britain Movement particularly in reference to splitting the vote.

Gerard Batten , an intelligent and practical man has , it seems , chosen not to look this gift horse in the mouth. He will be aware of course that this could backfire on him and his party – the three Youtubers in question all have quite a caustic if not sarcastic tone which is not to the taste of everyone. You either love these guy or hate them , there really is no middle ground here. While this influx of prominent Youtubers into UKIP is not a disaster for the fledgling For Britain Movement it is not something that Anne Marie will be dancing in the street about………..unless of course  it all starts going pear-shaped which it may well do. The fact that Batten was appointed interim leader of UKIP has not helped Anne Marie. If even half of the anecdotal evidence is true then Batten is doing quite a good job of getting UKIP back in the political race. He has brought them back for the brink of bankruptcy and stemmed the exodus of its members and if the comments on Youtube are anything to go by he is certainly winning people over. If this move by these three Youtube personalities works out well – or even starts a trend – then it will , at the least , put Anne Marie Waters under a lot of pressure. The road ahead would have been much smoother and promising if Henry Bolton was still fumbling about at the head of UKIP.  Luck , or at least the absence of bad luck is vital.

And if all this was not enough Anne Marie compounded matters when in the run up to the Lewisham East By-election she told a large audience that Stand Up To Racism would not stop her from speaking at the Lewisham East hustings which they then promptly did.

I respect Gerard Batten’s obvious intelligence and ability. He is not the kind of man who makes mistakes but having said that I don’t think he would make a good poker player and right now he is playing that game . The three men he has accepted into his party are not a natural fit for UKIP. They are the sort of men who are best kept at arms length. They are complicated men and it is not an accident that they are in the business that they are in. They are very good at what they do but it is definatly a strange sort of business……..and as we all know , there are a lot of strange people out there.

PS.  No sooner had I finish writing this than I discovered that Sargon of Akkad had just been expelled from UKIP before he had actually joined.  ‘Something to do with the “N” word. PPS. Update. Sargon of Akkad has been accepted into UKIP in spite of the”N” word  as has Milo Yiannopoulos. 26/6/18.

 

 

WHY A FOR BRITAIN FORUM

I do not live in the UK and I’m not a British citizen but I have an interest in the For Britain Movement. I cannot involve myself in the day to day happenings of British politics and so I developed this vague idea of writing a blog about what was happening in the UK and the For Britain Movement in particular. It was , and still is , all very vague.

It is a simple personal blog. I intend within a couple of weeks to add a forum where people who have an interest in For Britain and related matters might get to know each other and exchange ideas.

As the great Conor Mcgregor might say , ” It is what it is“.
