Britain’s Populist Revolt Is For Real


Tommy’s live-streamed latest video with details on the Brexit Betrayal Rally can be seen here. The fellow from UKIP gives a short summary of past betrayals. You Brits will know who he is but I’m guessing Gerard Batten.

Dr. Turley provides details on British populism. It’s far bigger and less dark than the UK media would have you believe:

Here’s an excerpt from the August 2018 essay, “Britain’s Populist Revolt”, quoted by Dr. Turley in this video:


…Recently, a prominent liberal politician suggested that Brexit was driven by pensioners who longed for a world where “faces were white.” References to angry old white men are never far away. Arguments that are implicitly about generational change are popular on the liberal Left because they do not require people to engage with the actual grievances. The world becomes a progressive conveyer belt; intolerant old men will soon die; tolerant liberals will soon rise.

What gets lost in these debates is the actual evidence. Contrary to rumour, Brexit was supported by a broad and fairly diverse coalition of voters; large numbers of affluent conservatives; one in three of Britain’s black and ethnic minority voters; almost half of 25-49 year-olds; one in two women; one in four graduates; and 40 percent of voters in the Greater London area.1 Brexit appealed to white pensioners in England’s declining seaside towns but it also won majority support in highly ethnically diverse areas like Birmingham, Luton, and Slough. [How’s that for ‘diversity’?] You don’t hear much about these groups in the media vox pops in retirement homes and working men’s clubs in poverty-stricken communities. Had these other groups that are routinely written out of the debate not voted Leave then Britain would probably still be in the EU.

Nor did these voters suddenly convert to Brexit during the campaign, which is another common misconception. One point that is routinely ignored is that British support for radically reforming or exiting the EU was widespread long before the referendum even began. Britain’s National Centre for Social Research recently pointed out that levels of British support for leaving the EU or radically reducing the EU’s power “have been consistently above 50 percent for a little over 20 years.” This is what the ‘short-termists’ cannot explain. If Brexit was an aberration, a by-product of wrongdoing, then why were so many people unhappy with this relationship long before the Great Recession, or the arrival of Twitter or Facebook? The currents that led to this seismic moment were decades in the making. [my emphases and aside – D]


One can reasonably infer that the lying media fed a sense of isolation amongst very diverse population groups whilst concomitantly spreading that delusion as a core belief. This is the old Divide and Conquer shell game of elitists who want to control behavior by limiting what one is permitted to think.

Thus is “racism” dressed up as the mortal sin when in reality it is an inherent part of the human condition. A love of ‘diversity’ is just another Naked Emperor.

  1. I voted for Brexit because I believe in having as much democracy as possible, and the EU is a transnational anti-democratic institution (if they could get away with it, there would be no EU Parliament, even though all it does is rubber-stamp decisions made elsewhere).

    Rather than believing in free trade, the EU is committed to having barriers to entry to Europe. Barriers that apply to everything except cheap labour, which is mostly brought in from Africa and Asia. Cheap goods can’t be brought in without heavy penalties, but the rich have no trouble trying to bring in cheap labour to undercut the native workers. A few years later and that cheap labour qualify as citizens who have a vote. That’s far more damaging to democracy than free trade or barriers to entry.

    What astounded me about the Project Fear campaign (in which then-president Obama read his script provided by David Cameron), was the number of retired (supposedly) educated people who voted for Remain. These were people whom I had known for decades as vociferous opponents to the UK’s membership of the EU. Without Project Fear there is no doubt in my mind that the vote to Leave would have been far, far higher. Every single pensioner I knew who had been opposed to the EU ended up voting for Remain. None of the brainwashed young graduates I know bothered to vote, as the media had already told us that Remain were going to win.

    Last week on TV news there was a group of black residents of London who had now received out-of-work training. The news report was about labour shortages in London, supposedly caused by Brexit. The formerly unemployed black people interviewed were all pro-Brexit, saying without the reduction in cheap imported labour people like them would never have been offered the opportunity to train to fill vacancies.

  2. My beloved (who is somewhat to my left) takes the Weekly “Guardian”. Last Thursday’s edition contained an opinion piece by economist Will Hutton on the protests in France, commenting that these are partly caused by the imbalance of power under the French constsitution, which favours the President over the Parliament; otherwise the increase in fuel duty which sparked the demos would not have been approved.

    Apparently neither he nor the editors (all pro-EU) spotted the irony.
