In Britain’s Aftermath, a Voice from the Rubble…

The newsletter below arrived in our email today. “Britain First” is one of those groups found in any polity that finds itself in the throes of fracturing and breakdown. This sudden “unity” under Prime Minister Cameron may be surprising, but it is not the result of a vigorous electorate or a free public sphere.

We have groups like Britain First here in America, too, and for the same reasons. These are the disaffected who have had the temerity to speak up, only to find themselves kicked to the curb (kerb) or ejected into the outer darkness where they are supposed to stay and — above all — shut up. If I remember correctly, BF was one of those groups which grew out of the screws being turned on the British National Party until it finally cracked under the strain. Britain excels at these tactics; perhaps because all the ornery DNA has either left for colonial lands or has been killed off in two utterly ruinous “world” wars. Those who followed after them don’t appear to value the same things as those whose places they took. Remnants of England are merely that: remnants.

Tommy Robinson an example of someone who was made to shut up and sit down. He was forcibly separated by Britain’s “justice” system from his own English Defence League. Once a group is essentially decapitated in such a manner, it will live on for a while but the charism that breathes life and spirit into a group will eventually be but an echo. The group will fracture and fade without ever having had an opportunity to grow to maturity. England tried that with the colonials but they were separated by time and distance so the punishments they devised couldn’t quite be made to stick effectively. [Tommy Robinson was born too late; he would have made a fine leader in the American Revolution.]

Britain today appears to be owned by powerful interests who make sure nothing of substance can grow in its toxic political soil. That’s how it looks to outsiders. The owners — whoever those shadows are — decide who will be permitted to run for national office. If they want to generate an ominous “atmosphere” they can. Thus voters scurry toward safety, just as they do here in the U.S.

In Britain, can all those native Brits who have been harmed by the massive numbers of non-British immigrants ever believe in justice again? Much harm occurred on Mr. Cameron’s watch; to see him take utter control gives one pause — are we waiting for Lord Acton to speak? In the aftermath, it grows quiet; there isn’t much left to be said, is there? Everyone resigned and left the room to the exultant Mr. Cameron. With the whole field vanquished, with Scotland set to sail, what will become of Britain?

On that note — which may be the wrong one since the tendency to project one’s own situation onto others is always a question in any “analysis” — here is the newsletter from Britain First’s chairman:

As I predicted yesterday, UKIP failed to make a breakthrough into Parliament.

They managed to secure only one seat, despite attracting around 4 million votes, which in itself is a colossal success.

I explained that the “first past the post” system strongly inhibited the chances of up and coming parties to break through into Parliament.

What is even worse is the way the UKIP leadership have handled the expectations of their supporters.

Nigel Farage backed himself into a corner by saying he would resign if he didn’t win in South Thanet, then lost, then resigned.

Right up until election day, UKIP officials overestimated their chances without a thought for the consequences.

Without the charisma, talent and personality of Nigel Farage at the held UKIP will now go into a steep decline and move further to the “Left” to appease the “Centre Ground”.

Without Farage at the helm, UKIP are doomed.

What was in essence just a single battle in a long war of attrition against the establishment, UKIP billed as a boom or bust “last chance” election.

Now the dust has settled, UKIP have demoralised their supporters and left themselves leaderless and facing meltdown.

This puts the Britain First movement in a serious predicament: do we jump into the electoral arena as a serious political party and finish the job UKIP started?

Depending on how UKIP re-groups and reforms, Britain First could be the “last man standing” on the right of politics.

We will be sending out a “members’ poll” shortly asking you to help us make this decision.

In the meantime, please click on the link below and watch our promotional video for our march in Dudley tomorrow where we will be opposing another unwanted mega mosque.

We need all dedicated patriots to come and stand with us in Dudley to help fight the Islam-ification of our beloved country.

The war against the establishment is only just beginning.

It will be a long war with lots of bumps on the road, disappointments and set-backs, but we will win the war, of what I am certain!

Yours sincerely,

Paul Golding
Leader, Britain First

  1. Perhaps, something can be learned from similar situations in the U.S.A. The Tea Party does not have a party, instead it aims to infiltrate the existing right-wing party (the republicans) to use that machine to further their goals.

  2. UKIP are not what they seem to be. I don’t trust them. The local branch where I live is spreading gossip about myself and my Church. It has now gone to the level of the Cardinal.

    UKIP are fake in my opinion- and I am not alone in that. I know hundreds of similar disenchanted. Britain First and Liberty GB are far better candidates.

    • I am accused of “racism” by UKIP. I pointed out that Islam is not a race but an ideology. Why do educated people slavishly adopt the terminology of the elite? Sheep.

      Everybody knows my wife is black but I am still “Waycist” to these people. And people want a party like that to win in the election? UKIP have been photographed with some really suspect members of the Religion of Peace….

      More of the same then?
      “New boss, same as the old boss!”

      • It is far easier for some to criticize what they hear than it is to contemplate the truth of the words that they have heard.

        • This would make a fine tweet. It could be repeated each time its application arises. If you don’t have a twitter account, create one just for this. I’d love to retweet it. 🙂

      • Guy, you really are [ad hominem characterizations redacted].

        The Baron, in all politeness and courtesy, gives you comment space and I support that, but I am no longer prepared to sit back and simply listen to and quietly tolerate your endless [epithet] without challenge.

        I say again, you are [an epithet], whilst I do wish you luck and love within the bosom of your [redacted modifiers] followers – if they exist at all – I personally would find it heartwarming if you would simply desist for a while – there is too much at stake for me to indulge you any longer.

        These times are trying enough to men’s souls and would benefit from far less of your personal metaphysical attention, no matter how well meaning it may be.

        Sincerely, Seneca III.

    • Point taken RE UKIP. But with FPTP, how likely is it that Liberty GB gets elected?! OTOH, although UKIP has its faults, IMO it’s a step in the right direction… with a voter base that broadly agrees with our views.

      • True, each hovering, uncertainly guided pencil which eventually placed a cross against the UKIP candidate is a potential cross against the next new kid on the block. Look at the second placed map of Britain (found at crusader rabbit), UKIP have quite a few seats. More importantly, there are votes to be vacuumed up. So. Who is going to step up? Of course Nigel may stand for reelection. Then we will be treated to much the same.

  3. Bishops through the ages have done what I am attempting to do! Christianity-real Christianity is not about “Being sweety sweety, nice nice, fluffykins” but being strong and prepared to defend against evil. I am sick of wishy-washy happy-clappy clergy.
    Bishops went to their deaths in the past.
    A Greek Bishop I knew even fought with the Greek resistance in WW2 and carried a gun. He had no regrets. Being Bishop is not about “dialogue” and being an embarrassing fool. It is about leadership and defence of the flock but above all principles of Good.
    Neither is it about bigotry.

  4. Paul Golding is the leader of Britain First. He was once with the BNP but gave that game away when it became obvious that the BNP would never be anymore than a fringe party that the government/media were happy to kick around.

    Golding has been arrested four times on what I would term trumped up charges that only 20 years ago would have been laughed out of court. This ‘attention’ from the elite has only emboldened him to try even harder to get his message out and he is not afraid to go face to face with those who would gladly take his head given the opportunity.

    I believe this man and his deputy are two people to look out for in coming events.

  5. Agree totally about Nigel Farage. Without him, UKIP is toast. Which is what it’s opponents want. So many people wanted him to lose in Thanet South, that even the Greens urged their supporters to vote Tory… why, exactly? What is this obsession with certain candidates losing?!

    Greens believe both Farage and the Tories are evil. So why do they, and others who think likewise, suddenly want to vote for one “evil” over the other? Is it because they’re afraid that Farage’s voice would suddenly make itself heard far more than before? If so, it fits nicely with another phenomenon – the desire of the Brits for their own press to be “regulated”, through reforms like Leveson… so is the British definition of democracy, the desire to silence your opponents?

    Yet despite such desire, and despite the near-total absence of support being voiced for the Right (the true Right of UKIP, as well as the pseudo-Right of Cameron), a majority of Brits showed that, deep down, they’re still prepared to think by themselves, while a substantial minority of 4 million stood firm, despite a year-long media onslaught, attacks by self-righteous “intelligentsia” up and down the country, and even UKIP’s own donors asking it’s supporters to tactically vote Tory, and cast a vote for one of the most maligned parties in recent British election history… so should UKIP call that a failure?

    And, outside of politics, another figure to enjoy massive support (in Britain, and beyond) is Jeremy Clarkson – someone similarly maligned for his politically-incorrect opinions, and often the target of mass onslaughts by the hyenas of the Left…

    So is the popularity of Clarkson, as well as the results of this election, effectively saying that Rightis opinions have lots of support among ordinary Brits – who should hence not be afraid to voice them?

  6. Britain First are not in a position to have political influence. Theirs should be other tactics. They would be wasting energy that could be put to better effect in what will be a long struggle against the Islamisation of Britain (and Europe).

    UKIP are in a position where they can wield real political influence and are, for all their faults, the best opportunity to make progress in defending Britain from creeping Islamisation and the almost unavoidable civilizational clash once Islam becomes intolerable – to the tipping point of British people.

    UKIP are the ONLY party that will do anything worthwhile to control immigration from second and third world fortune seekers asking for asylum in Britain. They are the only party that is remotely patriotic and tuned into the democratic will of the majority.

    Even though they may not be hard core enough for some…….

    • There is hard core and then there is smart hard core, NativeGlad 😉

      • True, but we need to wake people gently rather than roughly to be able to get the message across.

    • I fully agree. Given the FPTP system, why not get behind one large party, and work to get influence inside it? It (almost) worked this time – and UKIP are well-placed to be the main challengers, especially in many Northern constituencies that traditionally have been solidly Labour.

      • The tactic was to win enough seats to give Dave a straight choice between LibDems crashing to ten seats and UKIP with half a dozen. Tough choice. That’s irrelevant, the quiet tory did his stuff. Let’s see what happens now.

  7. I should point out the British National Party is NOT dead and buried. Its former Chairman, Nick Griffin, did admirable work in publicising the Rotherham – and other – scandals plus his part in preventing UK involvement in Syria. Actually, scandals is not the word to use for what happened in Rotherham. Unfortunately, his time as leader went on too long perhaps and he carried a little too much baggage from earlier comments made. Now the new Chairman, Adam Walker, is breathing new life into the party. We will NOT go away. Cameron is definitely a sharia appeaser. Remains to be seen just how compliant he is. It should be remembered his odious and pathetic Home Secretary, Theresa May, banned Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from Britain on the grounds of ” not conducive to the public good “. ie the muslims would riot.

    • Unfortunately, the British National Party is tainted by its former associations with Nazism, jokes about Auschwitz and generally being a byword for racism. While I’m convinced that in any Islamic country, the BNP would be on the extreme-liberal end of the spectrum, the fact is that in Britain it’s reputation is tainted – hence it’s disaster performance in this election. In fact, the BNP “brand” is so toxic that people will go to great lengths to avoid it, and others to pin it to their foes (see David Cameron’s slur once about UKIP being “the BNP in striped suits”).

      • “Unfortunately, the British National Party is tainted by its former associations with Nazism” don’t forget how the meaning of the term ‘NAZI’ has evolved over the years:
        1903 – 1920 adherent of a form of socialism born by the people.
        1920 – 1845 member of the NSDAP.
        1945 – 1989 one who sympathises with the 3rd Reich.
        1990 – 2000 one with animosity towards foreigners and having pronounced nationalist feelings.
        2001 – 2010 anyone who expresses conservative views.
        2011 – now anyone who isn’t a leftist.

        • Come on. I’ve seen that early stuff (and even later stuff) from Nick Griffin where it’s all about Jews, Jews, JEWS. And Vlad dug up that old video of him where he said he planned to ally with the Muslims against the Zionists or Rootless Cosmopolitans or International Bankers or whatever the euphemism was.

          Just because the word “Nazi” is thoroughly abused by the left doesn’t mean that the BNP isn’t National Socialist, because it is. It’s nationalist, and socialist, and it rants about the Jooooos. Or at least Griffin did, when he was in charge.

          • Too, the political party I was once a member of -Australian Protectionist Party – became compromised by an ex-BNP member who had migrated to this country (OZ) and joined the party. His activism against Israel caused the resignation of myself and the whole NSW state board due to the party’s hierarchy failing to censure him for his anti-Semitic remarks or to endorse the right of Israel to even exist!

  8. You do yourself real damage promoting Britain First on these pages.
    As someone who voted UKIP and realises that they do not cover the real issues that effect Britain ( eastern europeans are an easy target and a smoke screen for peoples real concerns about third world immigration), at least they offer a more moderate view to establish english common law as paramount and normal immigration levels.
    Britain first are racist and use Islam as a switch to further there hidden racist goals. I don’t have much to back this up but I know a racist nazi when I see one and that is why I am against Islam and them.

    • What you’re suggesting seems to be splintering into many small organisations, in the style of the Life of Brian’s “Peoples’ Front of Judaea vs the Judaean Peoples’ Front”. For the end result of that game, see the “success” of Britain’s far-left Trotskyite groups – as powerless as ever before… the real power-brokers being lighter shades of blue and red, but also the ones who are the most shrewd and pragmatic.

      Britain First may have its fair share of bad apples – but why cast them aside, without even giving them a chance?! Likewise – why not work to form a broader front against the crazy PC tendencies that have been sweeping the island, with an emphasis on countering the real danger of the Koran-bashing crazies ranting in mosques, training in forests and grooming young English girls in their “beemers”, as opposed to the overhyped “danger” of the lowly-paid, sometimes too-drunk Eastern Europeans threatening Brits with their dodgy English accents and beautiful (and all-too-often easy) women? (as you rightly point out, something which may be a very convenient smokescreen)

      At the head of such a front, one would need both strong, recognisable parties such as UKIP, and charismatic figureheads such as Nigel Farage, or maybe even someone like Jeremy Clarkson. But even in such an unlikely scenario, we would need to face the full wrath of the mainstream media, as well as leftists. True, they would work overtime to expose any “loons” in our midst – but what do we gain from weakening ourselves by splintering and rejecting many good people from the word go, from groups like UKIP, Britain First or the EDL?

  9. As a side note if it came to civil war you would probably find me fighting side by side with these guys but It would be a last resort and a sign of a desperate situation..

  10. Lenin was outside of Russia until the conditions were ripe. Neither was he silent. The same can be said for the Ayatollah and Iran. Perhaps it is better for some leaders to be away from the tender mercies of the governments that would wreck them.

  11. I’ll echo others here in saying Britain First has its place, but not as a political party. I remember awhile back they ran a few candidates in municipal elections and came dead last in every single one: even Liberty GB pulled ahead of them. Trying to jump into the fray of politics will lead to their destruction as a group.

    I’ve been following their website and Facebook page for awhile now (I know, I know, the dreaded Facebook! But, it does have importance, especially for the under 35 crowd), and I’ve seen them grow exponentially from a fringe group into nearly three-quarters of a million followers. Checking Facebook now the statistics are as follows:

    Total “likes”: 719, 406 (I remember even two years ago when they barely had 1000)
    Most popular city: London (I’m assuming this is where most of the visitors or “likes” comes from)
    Demographics: 18-24.

    The latter is the most interesting to me. They’ve got youth interest. That’s critical.

    Of course, all those likes are worthless if the people don’t actually hit the streets with them during their protests, or donate money and time. It’s easy to like a page and a few posts, agreeing with BF’s actions, and not do anything tangible. Keep in mind, their drive to unite the Anglosphere under their group means a lot of these followers are from Canada, Australia, NZ, and even America. Still, I think writing them off as mere racists and bigots does them a disservice.

    They’re undoubtedly rough around the edges, and some of the things they post even has me cringing a little. But, I think their street-style tactics has their place in counterjihad, especially as things get worse and worse. Moreover, and whether people think this is relevant or not, they have soft power. Their social media presence is influential, and I’m shocked at the amount of people who have their eyes pried open by a BF post or video. People who I thought would be the last one to ever be aware of Islam are suddenly sharing BF posts, often with the tagline “Never knew this was going on! Scary! It’s coming to Canada too…”

    Time will tell whether BF goes the EDL route, but I think they have some staying power.

  12. Supporting UKIP is the only realistic hope in the UK for the type of change that most of the people who read and comment here have. Why?
    Gaining political clout in Britain is difficult. UKIP are performing admirably because they have a very charismatic leader and some experienced politicians backing them and share some ideals with members of the popular Conservative party. This means they have support (and money). But even with these advantages there is clearly an agenda backed by the establishment in Britain to stymy them, as seen during the recent election (at least). This was very effective.
    It’s not a question of whether Britain First or Liberty GB have “better” agendas. They would be stonewalled.
    Importantly behind current events, and that which we are concerned about, is an Islamification clock. We need to support the political group that can deliver controls on Islamification not squabble on whether we prefer the Peoples Front of Judea, Judean Peoples Front or whatever. We cannot afford to procrastinate.
