How I became the story and why the Right is wrong | News.

My post last Saturday was based on the quoted remarks of Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett. He is now trying to qualify those remarks and to accuse the Right of hyperventilating " the drop of a chapati..." Let him squirm and smear. The genie is out of the bottle.

He certainly does not seem to have convinced his readers of his bona fides. Most poignant of the reader comments on the linked article was this, from "Digger" of London;

My Dad always warned me about Labour. You cannot trust them, he used to say. They hate Britain and everything it stands for and want to undermine it from within to create a permanent majority in their favour. They destroyed a fantastic education system in order to give all us plebs no fighting chance at social mobility (so we won't vote Tory), and they love creating state dependencies be they people on benefits, a bloated public sector or even quangos for their privately-educated mates. My Dad used to say all this in the 1980s and I thought him an old school bigot who didn't get it. But Dad - you were right. That's exactly what they are like. I'm sorry for dismissing you, and I'm even sorrier I ever voted for them (embarrassed even that I fell for the "New Labour" lie). My Dad has dementia now so doesn't notice the damage done to his country after 12 years of their nonsense. All I can do now is warn my son and hope he is not as fooled as I was.

This seems to me to be the authentic voice of the British working class. A class betrayed by a party founded, ostensibly, to serve them. In simple heartfelt words, Digger expresses many of the points I have tried for years to make here.

I hope his son listens, for all our sakes.

Labour's hidden agenda is more scary than we think. They appear to be following the

1928 manifesto of The Frankfurt School. A Marxist organisation based in Germany in the

20's and 30's. Mass manipulation and control of the populace....
To further the advance of their 'quiet' cultural revolution - but giving us no ideas

about their plans for the future - the School recommended (among other things):

1. The creation of racism offences.
2. Continual change to create confusion
3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
4. The undermining of schools' and teachers' authority
5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.
6. The promotion of excessive drinking
7. Emptying of churches
8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime
9. Dependency on the state or state benefits
10. Control and dumbing down of media
11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family

Sound familiar?

No one listens, particularly if it is sensible and will stop a crisis.

That quote from Digger is right on the money.

I can't think of a more treacherous peace-time policy than the one revealed by Neather.
I know libertarians are not supposed to initiate violence.
However I do think this question needs to be seriously addressed: When is it OK to do violence to politicians?

I do not know the answer, precisely.

But if it's OK to use violence against tyrants, (I think it is) is it also OK to do violence to mendacious leaders who implement a policy that they keep secret because they know they'd never get it approved if it was explained openly?
And how damaging to the country would the policy need to be?

The Neather revelations have shocked me deeply.
Why attack a culture and country that has so much to be proud of?

How can any experienced, educated person possibly believe that the dominant culture of the countries where our multi-culti problems largely come from is equal to our culture?


It makes me feel sad.


When a young man is raised to think it natural to be a hand-out receipient what can you expect.
From where else do they pay for their earings?
