GERARD BATTEN : THE MIDAS TOUCH

Everything Gerard Batten touches turns to gold. He simply cannot fail – When he took over the leadership of UKIP the party was in a state of implosion with the obituary writers just sharpening their pens to record the final collapse. It was all over , done and dusted , finished or so it seemed , but Batten had different ideas and he was hardly in the door before he had halted the exodus from the party and begun , over the space of a few short months , to put the finances of the party back in the red. Batten looked and sounded like a leader , someone who knew what he wanted and knew how to get it. He was comfortable in front of the TV cameras and projected the image of a strong man who knew his own mind – He was impressive , no question about that.

Nothing quite succeeds like success and soon major YouTubers with huge followings were flocking to his side while an army of disgruntled ex UKIPers were returning to the fold in ever larger numbers. Even his worst enemies would have to admit that he was doing everything right when, just at the right moment Tommy Robinson found himself in jail for contempt of court putting in motion chain of events which potentially could bring millions of new member into the ranks of UKIP.  God it seems , was on Gerard Battens side , there could be no other explanation . Batten was getting more TV coverage than Nigel Farage and looked ever more the national figure with each passing minute and it has to be admitted that he played his hand well , very well , in all of this and did not miss a single trick.

None of this bodes well for For Britain , at least in the short to medium term. When Anne Marie Waters founded For Britain she might reasonably have expected to pick up many ex UKIP votes and members , and with a UKIP that was becoming less relevant by the second her party could have hoped to attract the dissident ‘ right’ vote in any future election at national or local level , but now even the most committed For Britain member must be wondering if For Britain has any future at all.  Certainly this has knocked For Britain back – this was not exactly part of the plan and Batten is no Henry Bolton…….this is not going to be the walk over that some For Britain members might have thought it was going to be.

There can be little doubt that if an election is called in the near future UKIP will probable do well , how well is anyone guess , but all the polls look promising from UKIP’s point of view and if these predictions come true it could be embarrassing for For Britain is they fail to attract at least a respectable vote in the relatively few seats they have the manpower or funds to contest , and while no one in For Britain with any intelligence believed it would be easy few expected it might get this hard. This was definitely not part of the plan. The harsh reality is that most British people have never heard of the For Britain Movement or Anne Marie Waters and if the mainstream media have their way it will stay like that.

Of course , even if there is an election and UKIP do well , there are still a lot of quite powerful people in UKIP who hate Batten’s guts and would love to get rid of him at almost any cost and if an internal war were to erupt it might just tear UKIP apart. Batten has a somewhat arrogant manner , there is a bit of the upstart about him , a swagger that has only come to the fore in very recent times and he is rubbing all the right people up the wrong way and while it is undoubtedly true that nothing succeeds like success the opposite is equally true and pride , arrogance and over confidence can lead to a terrible and ignoble fall. Cynics might argue that Batten was a relatively quiet and inactive voice in UKIP untill Anne Marie Waters decided to set up her own party and that his interest in Tommy Robinson developed in tandem with Robinson’s breakthrough rise to prominence and international fame since his stint in prison and even those who don’t have a cynical bone in their bodies might come to the same conclusion.

FOR BRITAIN LEGAL ISSUES SUMMARY : october 2018

Since inception, like many individuals and organisations that do not sit on the far left in politics, we have been on the receiving end of some unacceptable situations from both the media and policing. As an Electoral Commission approved centre right party, we will not tolerate actions that cross the line of acceptability. Statements and actions from far left groups, some endorsed by senior Labour party members, are in danger of whipping up an ugly atmosphere that could eventually create serious incident. It is therefore our duty to vigorously pursue media or protest group misinformation, or authorities that fail to uphold our democratic rights. There are a number of lines we are pursuing, so we thought it worthwhile sharing the status on some. I am happy to say we are making progress. It is our belief that some people on the left believe they can act with impunity, that they will not be challenged. Let the party make it absolutely clear, that is not the case.
In June at the hustings for the Lewisham East by election approximately eighty protesters led by the Socialist Workers Party and the so-called-‘anti-fascist’ fascists of Stand Up to Racism gathered to obstruct access to the building aggressively jostling and threatening anyone trying to enter. One For Britain member who relies on a walking stick was pushed to the ground. A woman can be seen on videos spitting at people. Inspection of the imprint on leaflets and placards showed that the protest was endorsed and backed by The Labour Party. The meeting to arrange the protest was held at the local Labour Party HQ.  – To read the rest of this article go to  For Britain Blogs.

 

BLACK IRISH FAR RIGHT RACIST BIGOT FOR PRESIDENT ?

No one in the Irish media has called Kevin Sharkey a racist bigot – yet.  He is currently   seeking a nomination as a candidate in the upcoming Irish presidential elections later this year and while the media don’t like him or what he says , and are becoming more hostile and critical towards him , they don’t have the moral courage to actually say what they think of him.  The original of this video and many other excellent videos related to Ireland and immigration and Donald Trump can be seen on the Orlared Youtube site.
