United Kingdom

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

United Kingdom, or, as Australians of old would say, the Mother Country, had her elections. Fancy that! Obviously the EU commissars were confident that nothing would change to threaten their agenda and sinecures, thus had not banned them (EU directives over-ride UK laws). A pseudo-conservative party won and the people lost, again, thanks to their terminal and probably incurable myopia. If the almost European Brits didn’t get it, what can a person who can read and write expect from ‘oi, oi, oi, aussies’?

Just prior to the date Tim Blair wrote:

You know, a Labour win may be a good result, for three reasons:

One: It would teach yet another right-wing party yet again not to shift from their cultural and philosophical base. It’s amusing to watch these parties re-learn the basics every four years or so.“ [Remaining two reasons here]

I’m very close to his thinking. Our LibNats habitually lie to its “cultural and philosophical base” and hope that enough people will chose them, ostensibly a lesser evil, over the obvious big one, thus keep them in their cushy, undemanding, lucrative positions.

Now we can expect the ABC and the progies battalions, never happy when people do not vote as directed, to became even more shrill in their attacks on wuss Abbott and his band of spineless wimps. After all, here as in Great Britain, the Left controls media, judiciary, what now passes for art, and education. Yet people do not obey and it thus could conceivably, happen here…

Some may wonder what is the point of attacking Abbott and LibNats, who are so close to ALP as to be almost indistinguishable – I am talking about deeds, not words. It makes sense. Firstly, the incessant harping and irrational bile will disgust and maybe frighten away from politics anybody who may be a real conservative. If they do this to one (almost) of their own, what they would do to me? (My advice – they wouldn’t dare to do it if you are indeed a real conservative.) Secondly, it is not about any ideology, it is about personal power. The Left also destroys their own for no other reason but power.

Finally, it is amusing to see how the crystal ball experts got it wrong again. They are paid and paid exceedingly well for the garbage they consistently produce, but have no shame. Notice I no longer waste time and effort looking for commas on my keyboard.


About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    Mark Steyn: “It would be churlish to deny oneself the pleasure of hooting at the politico-media establishment, but, when that’s done, this is a deeply unhealthy electoral result. The Conservatives won because Labour got wiped out in Scotland and the Liberals got wiped out in England. But the reality is that, for a supposedly United Kingdom, the country no longer has any national political party. England and Scotland have taken on the characteristics of Northern Ireland – hermetically sealed polities full of weird, unlovely regional parties (“SNP”, “Conservative”, “Labour”) that have no meaning once you cross the border, and whose internal disputes are of no relevance to the other three-quarters of the kingdom: Nobody outside Ulster cares about “official” Unionists vs the more red-blooded Democratic Unionists. And so it goes with the Scots Nats and Labour in Scotland: nationalist socialists vs unionist socialists; Likewise, with the Tories and UKIP in England: transnationalist conservatives vs nationalist conservatives.

    Wales is the exception that proves the rule, where UKIP outpolled Plaid Cymru, albeit with no seats to show for it. The Scottish National Party got 4.7 per cent of the UK vote, and 56 seats. UKIP had nearly thrice as many voters – 12.6 per cent – but only one seat. That discrepancy is because there is no longer any such thing as “the UK vote”. I far prefer the Westminster first-past-the-post system to European “proportional representation”, but it only works if you have genuinely national parties. If the system decays into four groups of regional parties, the House of Commons will look less and less like a genuine national parliament, and more and more like some surly conditional arrangement – Scottish Kurds, Tory Shia and seething Labour Sunni triangles.

    The composition of the new house would strike any mid-20th century Briton as freakish and unsettling…”

    What’s the point of voting? This is a disaster – showing that if your talk is slightly less leftist, the sheep will vote for you. We will never get the true conservative government.
