We propose the establishment of a grass roots counter establishment, a local support network - our own institution - that brings together traditionalists of every persuasion. Not a political group - but networks where people can live tradition and experience culture, a genuine community, where individuals can learn, where skills can be shared, where ideas can flow, where friends can be made, where resources can be given, where action can be planned, and ultimately where an original, radical and passionate resistance can be built and instilled in our supporters.
The Independent and Conservative Future bully ‘The Third Man’ into public recantation. One of the latest attacks on the Traditional Britain Group came from the Independent last week as it warned against the growing threat of a younger ‘loony right.’
The referendum in the Falklands Islands on 10-11 March was a clear signal to the world that their population would not surrender in the face of threats and aggressions from Argentina. Instead, it would be the master of its destiny. The results spoke for themselves, with a 92% turnout and 98.8% voting in favour of retaining their status as a British Overseas Territory. Only three people voted against. This exercise in democracy, fully backed by London, stands in contrast with Buenos Aires' insistence that the islanders do not exist, and her efforts to harm the economy of the Islands.
Political Correctness has now also totally corrupted debate in modern Britain and when the Church of England Synod rightly voted against the heresy of Women Bishops this week the leader of the non-Conservative Party railed against those who stood up for classic Christian doctrine and told them to "get with the programme". That is the programme of The Left, of course.
The BBC really thinks that just by swapping around its 'management' that this will make a difference. It will not. The BBC is an institutionally left-wing, moralising (but without morality) publicly-funded disgrace. Their journalism is no different from that of The Guardian (which it constantly cites) or The Independent, or indeed The Times - all of whose journalists just dash off whatever rumour or prejudice they have - thinking that because such-and-such is a Tory, or a right-winger etc they are fair game.
Britain's entry into the EU was effected by underhand schemes by senior politicians who deceived Parliament and the British with lies and deceit into thinking they were only joining a trading arrangement when the culprits knew clearly that the aim was political union.
Clarifying the Left/Right Divide on Authority by Olivia Pistun - A Response to Libertarians. Whatever it may be, the political scale is not linear. The common distinction made nowadays between Left and Right, particularly by the young socially and economically liberal Twitterati, is that Left = authoritarian while Right = libertarian.
Conservation is Conservative by David Hamilton. 'We are not merely natural but we are natural in the sense that our lives are held together by emotional relationships and the numinous things in life like art and religion and a need for countryside as well as beautiful landscapes, rather than ideologies. We are natural in the sense that we form emotional relationships with our families and communities and our countryside. We have a duty to pass on the environment we have inherited to our children, as they, in turn, will have a duty to pass it on to their children.'
By David Hamilton. High Culture is attacked as upper-class entertainment or a way the ruling elites achieve hegemony over the masses. The elitist argument is ideological rather than factual because working-class people are not barred from attending concerts. Politeness and good manners are essential but if they pay the fee they are entitled to watch a concert.
An historical fact that is little known is that Sir Winston Churchill tried to introduce a Bill to control immigration in 1955, but it was not ready until two months after he had stepped down because of his health. He also wanted the Conservatives to fight the general Election with the slogan “Keep England White.” There is a great and evil slander laid upon those who call for control and common sense in open-door immigration. They are demonised as “Nazis” and “Racists"-we fought Nazism and many lost family in that war. They are accused of following Hitler when we follow Churchill.
Anyone who has read the papers or watched the news in recent days would have been shocked and appalled at the revelations of the Rochdale grooming scandal. Journalists from the width and breadth of the political spectrum have brought to public attention a story that highlights the most corrupt and depraved instincts of man, and yet above and beyond the warranted condemnation of those convicted, the facts of the case illuminated a far greater malady that has splintered our society.
Despite the fact it promotes what is today called politically incorrect language-but used to be called free speech- Enoch Powell is a victim of posthumous character assassination from the political left due to an inordinate focus on this single incautious statement. To racially divide in such a way was perhaps unwise in 1968, but no more unwise than when Black MP Diane Abbott claims ‘White people love playing divide and rule’ in 'progressive' 2012.
On June 16th the Traditional Britain Group is to hold the Enoch Powell Centenary Dinner, to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of almost certainly Britain’s greatest and most acclaimed politician of the post-war era. He is best known for his fervent and constant opposition to mass immigration which he referred to as a nation erecting its own funeral pyre. He was also implacably opposed to the European Union. He believed that Parliament was a place to “voice grievance, to demand that wrong be out right” and not a place for careerists.
By David Hamilton. There is confusion about what art is. The qualities that make something art are intrinsic, not external. It is the artifice, the organising of elements, perspective, choice of colour etc, that make it art. The result is obtained by transforming reality and thus nature through human imagination and emotion and is realised by skill and technique.
The word Beauty (or beautiful) is descriptive if used as an adjective to express the response of the beholder to an object, or if used within a clear context; if used as an abstract noun it is universal, and therefore meaningless.
By Henry Hopwood-Phillips. The Establishment were morally and intellectually helpless on those balmy summer days in 2011 when it came to condemning the rioters because ultimately the rioters were acting out the hypocritical double-think nihilism that the Establishment profess to believe in but would never carry out to its natural conclusion.
In 2009 Ben Stephenson, the controller of BBC drama commissioning, said that the corporation should encourage "peculiarity, idiosyncrasy, stubborn-mindedness, left-of-centre thinking." Yet, according to its own royal charter, the BBC must "be independent in all matters concerning the content of its output". To show how we got to this undemocratic, totalitarian state I give a survey of the war on our culture and history carried on against us in our theatres for over thirty years.
Our task must be to restore Britain, her heritage, her traditions, her glories, her position in the world. It must be to sweep aside the universal Left wherever they appear. We saw in the old Soviet Union and the former Eastern Bloc the final results of full-blown Socialism. Liberalism is an equal cancer. The crusade for our country must continue. What is needed is a Real Tory and traditionalist onslaught for our nation. We must keep talking and not be afraid to do so. We must get our message out there.
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.
