| In his Mail On Sunday column of 4th December, Peter Hitchens wrote:- ‘The monstrous birth of a new Liberal Conservative Party is now certain’.|
Hitchens goes on,
‘A few weeks ago I drew attention to the amazing remarks of Francis Maude, a close ally of David Cameron, who said he would prefer a coalition to a Tory majority after the next Election. I am sure Mr Cameron agrees with this. Now, Sir John (Major) – another close Cameron ally – has called for a permanent alliance of two of our three parties against the people of Britain’. Major ‘explained the attraction of coalitions – to politicians: ‘Two parties are more likely to enjoy a tolerant electorate for policies that are painful.’ …Or, in other words, that a coalition can ram through unpopular policies (Mr Major is an expert on those) more easily than one-party governments.’
The realignment of British Politics suggested by Hitchens and quite probably the break-up of the Tory Party with its traditionalist wing hiving off, was foretold in the forerunner of this Website ‘The Home of the Green Arrow and Friends’ in an article posted on 5th July entitled ‘Sigmund Freud and the BNP.’ There, in a discussion of the way groups of varying sizes deal with internal dissensions, it was stated that:-
‘By way of contrast, the Tory Party is somewhere further down Freud’s spectrum of difference. It is obviously much larger than the BNP and for historical reasons has always been something of a coalition of interests. The differences between these interests have not been perceived so large, at least compared to the party’s main oppositions, as to occasion splits. So the Party has survived. All that might change. One section of the Tory coalition may reposition itself elsewhere. The liberal David Cameron (‘Heir to Blair’) and his acolytes seem to have more in common with a good many Lib Dems than they do with the traditionalist Tories and the gulf between them may come to be seen as so wide as in Freud’s terms to be viewed with ‘Insuperable Repugnance.’ Many of these Tories actually have in many respects a good deal more in common with the BNP than they do with Cameron’s politics, but would be loath to admit it for the present at least, for reasons mainly of social acceptability – of snobbery,’The implications for the BNP are enormous should the ‘permanent coalition and /or probable split in the Tory Party come about. There will immediately be available a large number of voters including many of the traditionalist working class with nowhere else to go but to this Party.
The BNP should be prepared for this opportunity
