THE JORDAN PETERSON ROAD SHOW

Jordan Peterson , Sam Harris and Douglas Murray will be doing a gig in London and Dublin in mid July 2018. Peterson who’s C4 interview with Kathy Newman has been watched by over 10 million people is the star of the show – and this , of course , is the point . Its show business folks !

I have watched Peterson and Murray for several years now as well as many other Youtubers but I have been watching them less and less in recent times and have come to the conclusion that they may be doing more harm than good.  Murray , to his credit has , if not defended the EDL then at least put them and their street protest movement in some sort of informed context but he is very much the exception and even he has a certain attitude towards working class people which I , as a working class person , find  offensive and indicative of prejudice on Murray’s part. But compared to the rest of them he is quite radical and serious and fair in his analysis of political events. But it really gets my goat when people like Dave Rubin speak of the creation of an intellectual elite of which he himself of course is a member.  Give me a woman like Anne Marie Waters any day of the week.

If I am looking for wisdom I will look to political parties such as the For Britain Movement and if I want to be entertained I will listen to Elvis.

IS ANNE MARIE WATERS SPLITTING THE VOTE

Ever since Anne Marie Waters founded the For Britain Movement political party in late 2017 and more particularly since the recent Lewisham East by-election, more and more online voices can be heard asking if Anne Marie and For Britain are simply splitting the nationalist democratic vote. At a superficial glance it sounds like a reasonable question but of course the question also perhaps implies that they share a common aim or similar values. Are Anne Maire Waters and Gerrard Batten  two sides of the same political coin ?

At a FLA march in Birmingham in july 2018 Anne Marie stated ”  I have heard it all through the years….you will offend the moderates with your language……you will offend moderate muslims with your language……I don’t care if they are offended because I’m offended by female genital mutilation , I’m offended by child marriage and forced marriage and honour violence and all the other horrors that this religion is bringing to our society. I will say so and I don’t give a damn who is offended. If you join with me I will never back down “. At the same march Anne Marie stated ” For Britain was formed with one primary purpose in mind and that primary purpose is to tell the truth”.

There is no need to ask what Anne Marie Waters really stands for. It is as clear and as transparent as anything can be. We don’t have to read between the lines. We know exactly what we are voting for. But what about Gerard Batten ? Is it clear exactly what this man and his political party stand for ?.

In an interview with Tommy Robinson shown on Youtube Robinson , referring to Susan Evans , asked Batten if it was time to drain the UKIP swamp. He reminded Batten that Evans had spread the slander that he Robinson and Anne Marie Waters were racist bigots. Battens response was that different people had different opinions and more or less that was fine. In the same interview Batten repeats the same slander when the EDL are mentioned. Batten condemns the EDL and the good people they represents with the same contempt as any Labour Party apologist for Islam might display. And Gerard Batten understands that calling people racist can have fatal consequences. He understands better than most as the same charges and accusations have been made against him. But the real question here is what does Batten and UKIP stand for. Whatever it is it is very different to what Anne Marie is saying.

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“.
