A vote for ‘The Other’

By ATWadmin On November 2nd, 2006

Had enough of the main political parties? What I see is pretty pathetic! New Labour has lost all it’s shiny new gloss; is corrupt, truly socialist and dictatorial! Tories are just plain useless! Lib-Dems still with dreams of power; unfortunately, the dreams are wet! They are facing up to, amongst other items, repaying stolen money! Want to see what else is on offer? As any seasoned reporter will do, you go trawling, and see what ends up in the information net! Another blogger has described a couple of the smaller parties as minnows; I’d rather see them as dark horses!

First we have U.K.I.P., which started life as a single-issue protest movement by the anti-Federalist League, has grown to a fully-fledged Party with wide ranging objectives. They haven’t yet made much impression at Westminster, but have a tiny but solid block of ten M.E.P.’s at Brussels. They used to be twelve, but kicked Robert Kilroy-Silk out, and another left of his own volition! The Leader is named Nigel Farage, M.E.P., voted in this year, who was quoted as saying " "Persistent re-offenders should serve longer prison terms and if that means building more prisons, then so be it". Their Party website covers some but not all of the main sectors of political life, but without a big name or a political ‘push’ which might grip the voters, I feel is destined to remain both a Party of Protest at by-elections, and also somewhat overshadowed by the next contender.

The British National Party, successor to the National Front and other allied organisations, rests in the rather canny hands of Nick Griffin, who is just about to face a re-trial on Race-hate charges after a ‘hung’ jury trial on similar charges some months ago! A well-educated, well-spoken and supremely confident man, this leader of the ‘Fascists’ as they are so often called, has revived the fortunes of this cabal, put them on the front pages of newspapers time and time again, pulled senior Labour political figures into a hectic defence of both Council and Parliamentary seats. They really do fear this man, because he is devastating when gripping a microphone, and in these days of a growing protest against the multi-culture ethos so beloved of NuLabour, is speaking the words which many wish to hear. The problem with the B.N.P. unfortunately is that their whole attitude to the ‘Race’ question is akin to the old apartheid’ system in South Africa; a sort of ‘separate but equal’ but ‘we’ll pay you to go home if you wish!’. Unfortunately, one hell of a lot of moslems were now born in Britain, so the question must be asked of the B.N.P. what their attitude is towards these dusky Britons? One item which did raise a whole heap of eyebrows was the reaction to the BNP Election Broadcast entitled ‘Corporal Fox’, which swamped the server on which the website is hosted! I watched it, along with the other political broadcasts, and it beat them all hands down.

We now come to my own particular favourite ‘The Monster Raving Loony Party’! What more can be said about this band of true eccentrics than that they live as they read, and if elected, will go further! For sheer manic fun, there are few things better than to graze through such gems as "We will issue a 99p coin to save on change." and "The Official Monster Raving Loony Party will not join the single European currency. We will invite all Europeans countries to JOIN THE POUND." Simply marvellous; but behind the tomfoolery, there were certain statements made, especially by it’s founder, the late Screaming Lord Sutch, such as:- Demanding to know why there was only one Monopolies Commission, advocating subsidized heated lavatory seats for the aged; lowering the voting age from 21 to 18; legalized commercial radio and all-day pub openings. All but one of these have since become realities. With inspired policies such as "All future Deputy Prime Ministers will be required to be fluent in at least one language to encourage the education system." and "Traffic wardens will be re-named Dick Turpin because, let’s face it, it’s daylight robbery." and the truly classic "All people that think that they have a right to roam will need permission from the Pope.", they ought to be elected in a landslide!

  1. "What to do with Moslems born here?"

    Many are entitled to obtain a Pakistan Origin Card which allows them visa free entry & unlimited stay.
    They are quick to whip out the POC when needing to scarper from the police so it can work both ways.

  2. I’ve recently learned of a very interesting new political party popping up in France – Alternative Liberale – which could be a shining hope on the otherwise disasterous landscape of French politics. I say shining hope because the put their emphasis of individual freedom of choice, and entrepreneurship, self-confidence andtrust – values which they attribute to "classical liberalism." I think they’re worth watching, and supporting.

  3. "We will issue a 99p coin to save on change."

    I love this! :o)

  4. Me too – the 99p coin is a stroke of genius.

  5. "Demanding to know why there was only one Monopolies Commission" lol.

    I nurse a small hope that UKIP could become a serious contender as a right of centre, economically liberal party.

    Peter Hitchens says vote "none of the above" and wait for the Tories to collapse, in the hope that a truly conservative party rises from the wreckaage.
