It is very difficult in our current political climate, in fact a climate that has existed for the last 15 or 16 years, for a political group of any sort to move forwards recruit members and prosper... If we are to gain the acres of lost ground we need to act as a force to bring all those that agree with us together under one banner. At the moment the centre left is in the ascendancy because we have allowed the fall of Margaret Thatcher and the disastrous premierships of John Major, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown to permit the influx of left wing civil servants, local government officers, crackpot teaching, dumbed-down universities and uncontolled immigration to swamp our state services at no gain what-so-ever to the country.
The Traditional Britain Group held a successful Annual General Meeting, followed by an excellent and informative talk from a spokesman from Migration Watch, last Saturday.
An enthusiastic array of TBG members discussed the successes of 2011 and the future plans for 2012 – whilst the new committee was announced. The Traditional Britain Group can provide THE home to traditional conservatives from a variety of organisations, groups, educational institutions, clubs and parties looking for a genuine fight back, in thought and action. The line must be held – and pushed back against socialism, liberalism and unrestrained globalism, and this depends on a strong set of radical traditionalist and conservative ideas.
Today, our fellow countrymen North of the Border are facing a great choice which will have a great bearing on what we are all to be: the continuity of the UK, or a Scotland alone – or within Europe, and an England and Wales of county councils – a British Prime Minister no longer at international summits or in G7? (GQ, perhaps, but not G7…) Could it really be the case that Scottish Regiments will one day become the “Scottish Defence Force”, or that James Naughtie might be taken from us on Radio 4, to be made head of a new Scottish Broadcasting Corporation?!
We must understand the difference between a patriotic way of thinking and that of “Progressives” and “Internationalists.” Their ideological view is often based on a book and people are expected to refer to it and divergence from orthodoxy leads to being denounced or given correctional training. This happened in the Soviet Union, Mao’s China, Cambodia under Pol Pot and in the West now under Political Correctness. This is a Marxist strain but it came in with the New Left under the guise of a new Liberalism. Even now well-meaning liberals promote PC without understanding its totalitarian nature.
