The realignment in British politics reaches England
If you have never heard of the English Democratic Party then you are in good company because your friendly old Exile had not heard of them either until the other day. On one level they come over as complete and utter nutters who have a thing about the Bildebergers and Illuminati. That said, they are part of the realignment that is taking place in British politics and one of their number was recently elected as Mayor of Doncaster.
That set of policies are enough to gladden any working man's heart:
The “diversity” portfolio has been abolished from the council’s cabinet. From next year no more funding will be given to the town’s “Gay Pride” event, on the grounds that people do not need to parade their sexuality, whatever it may be, at taxpayers’ expense. Black History Month, International Women’s Day and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month are similarly destined to become history.Not only that, but the council funded translation service is to get the chop, on the principle that Johnny Foreigner can either learn English or fuck off. The aim, eventually, is to abolish all the Mickey Mouse jobs that the lower middle class use to feather their own nests with - and good riddance to all of them says this blog.
The problem is that the money saved will not go to help the working class by providing the manual jobs that our people want, instead it will go towards cutting the council tax, but the policies are a step in the right direction at least.
Across the country we are seeing a reaction to the Nu-Labour bollocks that has done so little for us, but so much for the middle class filth. Even stand up comedians who are not normally associated with political humour are getting in on the act:
Thus we can conclude from events in Doncaster that the realignment in British politics has now reached England, although we do seem to be still lagging behind our Celtic neighbours in Wales and Scotland.
In Wales the realignment is so far advanced that the so-called Independents can take a House of Commons seat and any number of council chairs throughout south and central Wales. Of course these representatives are not independent at all - they are old Labour and will probably form their own party soon. In Scotland the Nationalists seem to be picking up the lion's share of the ex-Labour vote, helped in part by Nu-Labour's desire to shaft the people who are not only working class but Catholic to boot.
The problem was and remains England because we have no obvious political organisation that can represent us. Thus people are voting for all and sundry, be it the EDP in Doncaster or the the Tories in places like Crewe just to get Nu-Labour out.
Politics hates a vacuum and sooner or later that gap in the political spectrum that Labour once filled will be taken by a party that will, hopefully, represent the working man's economic radicalism and social conservatism.
Sadly, this writer has no idea when that will finally happen.
