FOR BRITAIN MAKES BREAKTHROUGH IN LOCAL ELECTIONS

For Britain are up and running, with some fantastic results in the 2019 Local Elections including seat wins! Last year the party had just been formed, missing out on postal votes, but still managed some credible results for a brand new party, beating the Greens, UKIP and the LibDems in some wards.

But in 2019 we have gone further, winning seats which is extremely pleasing. This campaign has taught us a lot, when you take to the streets and talk to people, our message is extremely well received. 99% of the public agree with the common sense views we hold. It is incredible for a brand new party to beat Labour in the Northeast; congratulations to new Councillor Karen King, and in beating the Tories in Epping Forest; congratulations to new Councillor Julian Leppert.

Digging deeper, For Britain has consistently managed to finish ahead of other major parties, we managed to beat the LibDems and Greens in many seats, and both the Tories and Labour in others. This is something extremely positive to build on, and the party will now learn from the success to replicate the models that work across the country. These wins are the acorns from which future success will grow.

DOUGLAS MURRAY’S REGRET

“Day by day the continent of Europe is not only changing but is losing any possibility of a soft landing in response to such change. An entire political class have failed to appreciate that many of us who live in Europe love the Europe that was ours…….if they do change it many of us will regret this quietly. Others will regret it less quietly.”

I have just finished reading Douglas Murray’s , “Strange Death of Europe” , and the above paragraph , which comes at the very end of the book , sums up what for me is the problem with this book. Murray does not care , or at least does not care enough. He will , in his own words , “regret it quietly” and presumably just forget the victims and the damage done , not just to the victims of the last few years but all those victims to come. Murray’s language throughout the book is civil and temperate with one glaring exception when he uses the word ‘ rancid ‘ in reference to the ‘far right’ or at least certain sections of the ‘far right’.  ” It is also true that these parties ( Pegida/EDL) include people with rancid political views. But so too , it must be noted , do mainstream parties of the political left and right “. While this statement may seem quite reasonable it is significant that he makes it when speaking of Pegida and the EDL and not on any of the numerous occasions he quotes Angela Merkel and a host of other people and groups. He does not refer to any of the mainstream characters that litter his book as ‘criminal’ in spite of the ample evident that he supplies in his book that that is exactly what they are.

This is an interesting and very readable book and it will , I’m sure , ‘red pill’ some people but I fear that in the long run it may do more harm than good – like all those slick YouTube videos that entertain us far more that educate us and always avoid stating the very things that really do need to be put into words…..Things , sometimes NEED to be said for them to become real in the minds of people. Sometimes it really is necessary to call a spade a spade and tell people in plain english things which they may not wish to hear or contemplate. I suppose you could say that this is a very entertaining book – but that is the last thing we need just now. We are being entertained to death via YouTube and books like this , perhaps literally, while in the real world everything is going to hell at an ever faster pace. We need men and women of action in these times and not books  and perhaps if we find such men and women of action we may live to write great books in the future…..We need the ugly brutal truth told in all its ugliness. We need it rammed down our throats. The time for civility and reason is over.
