HOW DID WE GET IN THIS MESS?
In our first Prospectus we sought the root cause of our present turmoil in the loss of a generation of young men in the trenches of the Great War which resulted in a gender imbalance. This and the ongoing fall-out from the Enlightenment gave us a society created by a vocal but active minority intent on implementing and imposing an extreme, intolerant, militant feminist, liberal, secular agenda.
In 1971 the Gay Liberation Front Manifesto was published setting out a radical agenda for a revolution in cultural values and social institutions attacking amongst many things the traditional family, monogamy and rigid male and female gender roles. It asserted that the oppression of gay people starts in the most basic unit of society – the family; formal religious education is still part of everyone’s schooling and our whole legal structure is supposedly based on Christianity whose archaic and traditional teachings support the family and marriage as the only permitted condition for sex.
The aim of the architects of the Manifesto was to abolish the suffocating small family unit that would not disappear without a struggle. The idea of settling down eternally with a single partner was anathema for them. So the gay push for same sex marriage is a lie and is only intended to destroy traditional marriage between a man and a woman, with children belonging to the state. The architects of this cultural revolution and their comrades have infiltrated all sectors of society and wormed their way into trade unions, political parties, the legal system, government, quangos like equality and human rights, broadcasting and the established Church of England. It is now confirmed that there is a gay lobby in the Vatican. Their weapons to silence opposition are political correctness and accusations of homophobia.
David Cameron’s solution for our problems was a modern and compassionate Conservative Party. At their 2006 Conference he offered cleaner politics and a New Direction with no going back to old policies. His symbolic clause four moment was to redefine the family. This has resulted in the Same Sex Marriage legislation. The socially destructive domino effect of Cameron’s foolish promotion of this legislation will be felt – wittingly or unwittingly – throughout the UK in the years to come.
At the start of 2007 we were still riding a fourteen year period of growth and prosperity. Nobody asked how this had been possible. Gordon Brown took the credit. Boom and bust had gone for ever because of his Prudence. A few years earlier prudence had deserted him. The Chancellor together with his chief aid, Ed Balls, had gone on a spending spree. As Liam Byrne said, on leaving the Treasury defeated in 2010, “there is no money”. We now know that in 2006 the civil service had warned Ed Balls that Labour’s spending plans were not sustainable. But in 2007 Brown was triumphant, a master at managing the country’s economy and finances, and muscled (some say bullied) his way to the leadership of the Labour Party and became unelected Prime Minister.
Come the General Election of 2010 there was still a feeling that there was no credible alternative but voters had had enough of New Labour and Gordon Brown’s ‘New Kind of Politics’. Neither were they enamoured with the idea of Labour and the Conservatives following each other in circles. Succeeding governments of both hues have broken the ‘Compact’ made with the people in 1945. The one constant has been – change after change after change, swinging from one extreme to the other.
The slippery Liberal Democrats and Clegg continued to present themselves as everything to everyone. We predicted that the 2010 General Election would consist of a conspiracy by the main parties to avoid discussion of their past disastrous periods of government by only talking about the future. That it would be a campaign of extreme deception and spin, with truth being the loser. It would not be about the future and the survival of the country, it would all be about the survival of political parties. Political parties as we know them are not the future. They are the problem.
We on the other hand would be looking to a post-party future.
We would be going back to the future.
And it came to pass that the canny voters decided to trust none of the parties. No party got a majority of the popular vote – which was not unusual – but also, none of the parties won a majority of seats in the House of Commons, which was unusual. By either reckoning ‘none of the above’ had won.
The people had voted for a minority Conservative government that would have to seek support on a case by case basis. So long as its essential programme as set out in the Queen’s speech was accepted by a majority in the Commons they could proceed. So long as the Budget was approved by the Commons they could proceed. None of the other parties would have dared reject the slimmed down manifesto. It was the will of the people. It was democracy.
The people were denied their right. The manifestoes were ditched and the voters had a Cameron/Clegg Coalition Agreement foisted on them. The driving force for this undemocratic arrangement was the chief of the civil service, Gus O’Donnell, known by his initials as god and acting as the almighty, he constructed a European type coalition government that had no popular mandate and no convention in our unwritten constitution.
It has been a marriage made in hell with constant bickering and fighting.
This must not happen again. This must not be a precedent.
It is not the future.
