Ignore Us At Your Peril
Another excellent Analysis by rugfish
Lord TebbitLord Tebbit is a giant in politics with an enviable reputation for straight talk. I recall listening to his speeches on YouTube at the Bruges Group, when he smattered his speech on the future of where Britain's place in Europe lies, with both humour and unarguable definition, that no one except the idiot left or the misplaced republican within the ranks of liberal democrats could find reason to argue.
Read that speech here: LINK which I saved as an historical account of a man who for me at least will always be known for having spoken the truth succinctly, and which I will continue to remind readers of at times when clarity is missing from others less brave.
I have always admired this man, as I do any man, or woman for that matter, who speaks their mind honestly and with a clarity of purpose which when summoned, shows that they are loyal to their country and loyal to its people and this is why I hold him and people like him in high esteem. People like Enoch Powell, people like Churchill, people like Thatcher, and people like Nick Griffin. Whose only interest has been to dedicate their political thoughts to the betterment of the British people.
This is why, regardless he may have been on the wrong end of the media at times with his 'advice' that out of work Brits should "get on their bikes", I can now better understand, given my knowledge of the media today, and I can carefully deselect that 'advice' as having been nothing more than an off the cuff remark made into glorious headlines at a time when the media were doing their best to 'smash Margaret Thatcher', just as they now want to 'smash the BNP'.
Doubtless others will have their own opinions but that is mine and it will not change.
So when I read today that he has made a "ferocious attack on David Cameron", I am minded to look beyond the headline and see why.
Lord Tebbit argues against Cameron doing a deal with Clegg.
He says a second election is inevitable and says to do a deal with Clegg will put fiscal controls, i.e. cuts at risk.
Which it will. He is right, because Clegg's party and top priority is 'fairness in the tax system'.
Remember that the LibDems and Labour are all about 'fairness', and the Tories are all about being 'unfair' if you believe the papers, and this is why the Tory leader David Cameron has been banging on so much about 'being more fair'.
Lord Tebbit isn't the only Tory grandee to be spitting blood over Cameron's ineptitude at the polls, but he's the only one currently speaking out about it.
But the fact he is speaking out should give warning to all the fake Tories out there who think they are in the Conservative party under Cameron, when nothing could be further from the truth.
The minute Cameron conceded to liberal thought was the minute I left the Tory Party.
For a Conservative can NEVER be a liberal and a Conservative can NEVER put 'fairness' to minorities above clear pragmatism, both when dealing with an entire populace with beliefs which are not the minority and with an economic and monetary problem which will effect the lives of all.
These problems, if dealt with on the basis of 'fairness' will sink the ship and will cause retaliatory strikes against the political direction he is proceeding by a majority which thinks otherwise to what he attempted to force down their throats, and was trounced at the polls because the people didn't want it.
He must come off this pedestal of 'fairness' and look toward a pragmatic approach which is Conservative thinking or I doubt he will remain Conservative leader much longer than another election.
Lord Tebbit also said; "Enoch Powell was right", and that should be taken as another warning.
At this point I have to wonder why I bother relating Lord Tebbit's warnings to someone who is clearly incapable of understanding them, but in the spirit of an Englishman I will give Cameron if not his aides, one last chance to take heed, before he completely smashes the Tory Party with his liberal thinking.
But I'm British National Party, so why do I care you might ask.
Well I care because I understand Lord Tebbit has more in common with the British National Party than many might think including him and the media. I see Lord Tebbit as the Nick Griffin who hasn't been 'got at', and the Margaret Thatcher they couldn't shut up.
Lord Tebbit with his clear sound advice that the British people will think like he does that if David Cameron abandons his manifesto for the sake of a third rate party leader who was beaten to a pulp by the electorate, then they like him will think he is "daft".
What Cameron needs and what the people needs is a way out of this mess, and that should start by listening to the people and to what they actually voted for.
One part of what the people told the political elite the other day on 6th May 2010, was that they wanted immigration to be dealt with properly and they wanted the question of the EU answered.
Remember, the only two parties who favour our membership of the EU got a drubbing at the polls.
David Cameron can step forward with a clear plan now:
1 - He should say 'no deals'.
2 - He should say this has gone on long enough and we must ask the people about Europe.
3 - He should open the books and tell the people what cuts to really expect.
4 - He should say that NOTHING will stand in the way of British democracy and I will honor the decision of the people in what they decide on a set number of choices for electoral reform which will include proportional representation.
5 - He should speak out now AGAINST the unelected subversives who he aligned himself to, promise to put them out of action if he is elected, retract the disgraceful way he conducted himself when referring to an elected MEP as 'ghastly filth', and openly recognise a need to discuss the politics of this country with a man who holds over 563,000 votes in his hand from only half the country, and who WILL gain a voice with or without him in any event as the polls open next time.
Cameron should also consider that his bully boy tactics did not work but instead worked against him.
If he doesn't learn from that then he will take an even bigger drubbing in the polls next time as the British National Party I am confident will redouble its efforts and will field a lot more candidates than they did last time.
The old cliche of racist, fascist and Nazi will undoubtedly be seen as complete lies when the British people have their eyes opened at how ordinary people, the men and women of Britain, who stood against the establishment and came out top, whose only aim was like Lord Tebbit's in that they wanted to save their country, were people just like them who you will ignore at your peril.
