NuLabour and ‘Britishness’

March 27, 2008

I just had to quote this remarkable posting from Peter Hitchens’ Sunday Mail blog on the subject of the bizarre witterings of NuLabour on ‘Britishness’ and the idea of an ‘oath of allegiance’. It sums up perfectly why we now need a British Resistance Movement. 

‘The people who destroyed Britain now say they want to revive something called “Britishness”.

This is as grimly funny as a gangster funeral, where the murderers pile enormous wreaths on the coffin of the man they butchered.

It also completely misses the point. “Britishness” grew out of our forgotten talent for leaving each other alone, for private life and private pursuits – and a general resistance to being organised, plus a dislike for what used to be called Nosey Parkers.

How can this flourish in an age when the taxman can force entry to our homes on the say-so of some unaccountable official?

Our ancient culture was a forest that took a thousand years to grow and less than half a century to cut down. Now that the trees are all flattened, the people who massacred them find that they are shivering in a howling wilderness that they are powerless to restore to its former shape.

All the funny money “private finance initiatives” in the world, all the taxes they can raise, all the concrete and plastic they can buy, cannot rebuild a forest.

This is why nothing that they do works. The old mechanisms of loyalty and respect for authority – which these revolutionaries despised – are broken. They can shout all kinds of instructions at us, but nobody is really paying attention to anything they say.

They decree better schools and hospitals, and produce sinks of infection and ignorance, because they have destroyed conscientiousness and dutifulness, and sabotaged obedience.

They decree an end to “anti-social behaviour” but the loping packs of feral youths pay no attention, and carry on kicking people’s heads as if they were footballs.

Is this any surprise in a country whose leading minds have devoted the past half-century to dismantling absolute morality, the married family and the idea of punishment?

They claim to be concerned about the planet – in the abstract.

But in reality they preside over the gross, foul-smelling uglification of a country that was, within living memory, one of the most beautiful on Earth.

They claim to be concerned about the break-up of the United Kingdom, a break-up they pursued with vigour when it suited them.

Now they drivel on about a “national day” and an “Oath of Allegiance”, pilfering their ideas from the USA, a country they understand even less than they understand their own.

Imagine it, sullen 18-year-olds, clutching diplomas they can’t read after years confined in schools which they hate and which hate them, grudgingly muttering some semi-literate, politically corrected formula as they stand in front of a Union Flag made meaningless by our national surrender to the EU, by our other surrender to the IRA and by our appeasement of tiny-minded separatists in Edinburgh and Cardiff.

The day that happens, we will know, finally and for certain, that Britain is dead.’

Time for a British Resistance?

March 18, 2008

As of now – early 2008 – we have reached a situation in the UK where the very existence of our country, as a sovereign independent parliamentary democracy, and the coherence of the British identity and way of life are threatened as never before. On the one hand we have been completely betrayed by our ‘elected representatives in relation to the EU – right from the beginning, when the quisling Edward Heath led us into the then EEC with a totally dishonest assurance that it was purely a trading association (‘common market’ as the phrase then was), with no question of future financial or political union, to the recent acceptance of the Lisbon Treaty, or EU Constitution, which initiates a President, Foreign Minister, armed forces, police, etc. for what is unmistakably a unified European state, of which Britain (or rather the assortment of ‘regions’ which used to constitute Britain) is merely a province. About 70% of our laws and regulations now stem from the unnaccountable and unelected EU Commission, and EU ‘law’ takes precedence over English and Scots law. In other words we are now ruled by a foreign power. All this has been done against the will of the majority of British people, who are increasingly hostile to the whole EU project, and the promise of a referendum on the constitution has been contemptously ignored. On the other hand, and at the same time, under more than a decade of New Labour government Britain has been subjected to what amounts to the biggest foreign invasion of its history by far, in the form of completely uncontrolled mass immigration – again against the wishes of the majority of its people. Not only have millions entered ‘by right’ from EU states, but unspecified millions have entered illegally from every corner of the world, with devastating impact on services like health, education and social security, not to mention just space alone in what was already a comparatively small, overcrowded country. The doctrines of so-called ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘political correctness’ have insured that most of these uninvited ‘guests’ have been encouraged not to integrate, so that in our major cities there are vast ghettoes where English is hardly spoken and customs that have no history in this country and are in many ways actually objectionable to British values are followed openly; in certain areas whole towns have effectively been taken over by one ethnic or religious group and most of the indigenous population whose families and way of life had been established for centuries have either been driven out or are reduced to cowed minorities in their own homes. We have created third-world conditions in our own land and imported organised crime and medieval cultural practices from around the world. Many British people now feel like strangers in their own country, and when they express justifiable dismay at this are labelled ‘racists’, ‘bigots’ and ‘xenophobes. There is a sense of great anger, frustration and despair across the nation, and many feel that things have got to the point where there is no hope. Is this true?

Well. It will be true, if we let it be. In the face of this massive crisis for Britain and its people, there are really only three alternatives: (1) to surrender (2) to join the enemy (3) to fight back. It is the last option which is the one most British people will identify with. We surely haven’t come through so many centuries of struggle, when people fought and died for liberty under the law and rose to the challenge repeatedly to defeat the continental tyrannies that threatened us and the whole of Europe, to roll over and give up now?

I believe what is needed is a British Resistance movement – similar to those that have resisted tyranny and injustice over the centuries. Like the brave dissidents in the former Soviet Union, we will have to be prepared to persist for years – decades – in sometimes very discouraging circumstances – to achieve our final aim: the restoration of our national independence and the sovereignty of our own elected parliament (for all its faults, still one of the most admired and effective representative institutions in the world), taking back control of our own borders and who crosses them, and the reassertion of a whole series of traditional values and ways of doing things that have for so many generations made up our distinctive British way of life, but have been subjected to wholesale attack and undermining in the last few decades.

This blog is intended as a rallying point, a gathering place and a place for discussion for all those who are willing to be part of the British Resistance, and who actually care about saving this country from the disastrous position it is currently in. I will be putting up links to allied and sympathetic sites and inviting other contributors to write material, and of course for all and sundry to comment and discuss. Remember what Churchill, one of the greatest of Britons said, and take heart:

We shall never surrender!
