This is not exactly news but Toque has decided to call it a day after being [allegedly] constantly smeared by Steve Uncles, of the English Democrats.
I am a member of the Witanagemot club [which changed its name in a temporary loss of sanity] and the core aim of that group is an English Parliament, along with resolution of the West Lothian question and the Barnett Formula.
With the original Albion Alliance project, we found very quickly that many we might have called natural supporters or allies just wouldn’t get onboard for this little reason or that, even though we went to great lengths to show that we did not see ourselves as leading any movement but wanting to join in with and support all the fragmented movements going on at the time.
At the same time, groups were springing up which gave the appearance of wishing for a referendum on the EU and yet, to our dismay, we found that they were away with the fairies on this – thinking that an English Parliament could be achieved without throwing off the yoke of the EU. I was astounded by the logic of some of the arguments against a referendum which had been promised and which the majority of people in England indicated that they wanted.
Let alone the reasons of fact in what the EU was and is currently up to.
This was similar to the fate of the Witanagemot – there was just too much fragmentation and certain groups wanted to hijack the running of the campaign for an independent England. There were so many sites, so many campaigns, so much … well … fragmentation, I suppose. Most dispiriting.
If I mention English Nationalist, what image is conjured up in your mind?
There you go, you see. I mentioned to someone the other day that I was a member of “the English Nationalists”, without specifying that it was the Witanagemot which I was referring to. You should have seen the looks I got and how quickly people shut down discussion and moved away.
This is what the Witanagemot was up against.
Obviously, it’s in the interests of the EU to divide and rule and that is going along swimmingly, it seems. When people wake up to the EU monster and demand that referendum, as we did on behalf of those who felt this way, by directly contacting all PPCs on the matter, then we are on the road to an English Parliament.
How far away is that?
