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.

ANNE MARIE WATERS RITUALLY SLANDERED ON BBC’S THE BIG QUESTION

Anne Marie Waters appeared on the BBC ‘Big Question’ Programme on Sunday 27th January 2019 where she was ritually slandered in classic BBC fashion , the audience having been well salted with various ‘anti fascist’ and ‘anti racist’ types. However , at this stage in the history of the For Britain Movement there is no such thing as bad publicity and Anne Marie came across as a very formidable and strong woman.  If you don’t want to watch the full programme from the begining the ‘Far Right’ section of the programme starts at 29:00 minutes. Anne Marie’s response to the BBC in regard to her treatment on the programme can be found on the For Britain Blogs page on the For Britain website.

 

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.
