The image we’re left with from these elections

Time for a bit of sober reflection, a bit of perspective in the [not so] cold light of day today. The definitive account of these elections is probably at Guido’s.

In these days of the political image replacing the well thought out argument, it will probably be the bacon butty which remains.

For me though, just as one commenter at Guido’s pointed out, it was the sight of that woman with a large red rosette standing within shot at Nigel’s “victory” speech:

farage euro speech

There are so many things to reflect on there and it summed up the election like no other image could.

First, Nigel – the reason he won was over immigration, not the EU. The EU is his personal thing. It’s ours too [the online activists] because we know just how destructive it’s all been, that project and just how hoodwinked our fellow Brits have become – and in fact still largely are.

Nigel has still not sold Brexit to the great mass of people as yet – the people voted for him mainly on 1. immigration and 2. the arrogant and patronizing attitude of politicians who won’t listen. David Phipps is right in saying it’s about more direct democracy, to the point the “leaders” actually listen to our voices.

Yet Nigel, on his Brexit hobbyhorse – his real reason for being in the game – mentioned only that and not the other things which had his party elected to places in the EU. And to an extent, fair enough – it was an EU election anyway, was it not? Yet I felt he should at least have mentioned the other things which had moved people to vote for him.

Then came his “people’s army” language – does he think he’s a general and we’re his army? If he does, he’s sadly mistaken. If it is an army, it’s an entirely volunteer army in which the hierarchy is upside down and if he tries to come the Westminster politician, that “army” will disappear into the ether whence it came.

If he has an army, then it’s a highly critical army and will dump him the moment the party starts to go all Westminster over us. I’d like to think UKIP are well aware of that.

The last point on Nigel was the angry face. He still hasn’t learnt that though we’re all angry – the Angry Army if you like – and for very good reason indeed, nothing whatever to do with whipping up “hatred” and “fearmongering” – it might not be so good to be angry at the “victory” speech.

Still, for all that, well done UKIP … so far.

On to the Labour woman. As some pointed out in the wee hours at Guido’s, what an arrogant, ignorant, ill bred woman with no graces, no understanding in the least of why all this has been happening and with that utter leftist conviction that the dystopia they wanted for us had been so roundly rejected by the people as a whole.

A couple of their lot put tweets up: “God help us!” and similar. Interesting how they suddenly find God in their hour of need but deny Him the rest of the time.

And looking at that dystopia of the Islamic thugs and Romanian gangs which many of that soft left have not the slightest idea they’re aiding and abetting – they truly believe they’re promoting a fairer and more tolerant society when, in reality, actually promoting the opposite by playing into the hands of the PTB who are playing them for fools – they see a dream smashed by people of this land, ordinary people, who want no further part in this social engineering.

To be a bit coarse here – it f***s with their minds, the Labourites, Guardianisti and all their entourage. You see, they’re so utterly convinced the Narrative is right and good, that they are actually the purveyors of good, that Farage must seem to them the very anti-Christ. Go into my “testimonial” page and you’ll see precisely that charge laid against your humble correspondent for that very crime – promoting a saner Britain with a bit of perspective.

Let me quote the noble feminist:

Have you ever considered that you might be the Anti Christ? Mad, full of hate, mysogynistic, just plain weird. Man, you tick all the boxes. You are one insane son of a bitch. Bitter. And left as scrap.

Has she ever considered how she comes across to sane people, unchoked up with bile? And so it has been throughout this whole campaign for Nigel, UKIP and the exasperated EUsceptics in other parties.

The sad, lost souls of the Narrative will blame anyone, anyone at all, except themselves or the PTB manipulating them from the UN and the EU. 75% of laws made in Brussels? You wish – how about looking closer to New York and the UN itself with all its directives. But let’s not rehash old issues in this post.

So, in the way that that woman with the red rosette was exasperatedly shaking her head in disbelief lay the seeds of further doom for this society. The children of the Narrative – what, 40% of society? – include some who still come to my personal blog, as distinct from OoL and they must also be shaking their head in disbelief and trotting out the “politics of fearmongering and hatred” mantra, even now.

They simply will not, cannot bring themselves to self-examine. They will say the same about us yet we have a concrete statement for them now this Bank Holiday Monday – this result. Will they take it on board or will they try any rationalization they can to explain it away and prevent cognitive dissonance in their minds?

We, on the other hand – the ones who caused this thing to happen last night and over the past few days – we’re always self-examining. We’re never completely sure. The post on egos yesterday was all about self-examination – we do this sort of thing all the time.

And therein lies the very deep division in our society. Those Westminster pollies, their masters, the legion of accolytes they’ve fooled for so long, the left, Labour, half the LibDems, the EU, the UN, the IMF, the CFR, the TLC, the BIS, WHO, all of them – are lined up on one side and on the other side are UKIP, those who voted for it, plus the Tory rebels, Better Off Out, various other groups and then a large number of ordinary, apolitical people of the land whom the other side has been constantly insulting and saying the most outrageous things about these past months.

And those people are quietly furious.  Here is an example of the insanity we’ve been putting up with for so long:

left insanity

I would wager that, unlike the slow way normal people have come to see the truth of this matter, the ones still clinging to the exploded dream of the Narrative are still hanging onto the sides of lifeboats as this leftist project sinks into the deep blue sea.

And the more people like me write things like this, the more determined the children of the Narrative are to dig in and refuse to see that they should live and let live, let us live our own lives without their interference and hate politics – the very mantra they fling at us so lightly.

The left, from the days of Frankfurt, have progressively demoralized society with their social engineering and one election result is not going to reverse that. Nor will Newark, nor will GE2015.

Other bloggers will put the message of this post far more diplomatically, they’ll open their arms and welcome back those under the spell of the Narrative – good people at heart but misled – and I welcome them back too but they have to do their part first and see exactly why it is that so many voted this way on Thursday.

Just for once – forget all the left-liberal spin and examine why it really happened.

    In among all the noise from the media ‘experts’ and the euphoric UKIP triumphalists everyone has missed the other trend which is that the LibDems appear to have been overtaken and replaced by the Greens.
    That is interesting because the Greens have a majority in one Council area (albeit not an overall majority); Brighton & Hove.
    If UKIP can do that next time then you can say they have tapped into something other than the ‘anti-politicians’ vote.

    Quoting Paul Staines as if he were a serious commentator does you no credit. He is what is known as a ‘gobshite’ in his homeland 🙂

      I quoted none of his views or activities but his number crunching and in that, he was spot-on. Tell me one figure he had wrong all night.

      euphoric UKIP triumphalists

      Translated into normal-speak – vindicated people of this land who sent a message to the corrupt parties who wouldn’t listen. Yes, euphoric on that.

    Although there is need for some PCism because I don’t want to live in the days where it is acceptable to have minorities marginalized with hate speech, and some people are unable to regulate themselves, I think there is nothing wrong with wanting to keep Britain , British. That does not make one a racist,wanting to preserve their own homeland,customs and laws. I wish that UKIP had done so well on other pertinent issues as well as their stance on immigration,however.

    I don’t think we need to control immigration in Britain, I think we need to suspend it for awhile,if not indefinitely. Britain is a small,overcrowded island as it is and the fact is that the island, and the economy/employment, cannot support any more immigration.

      We have reached a stage where in order to keep Britain British we would require a repatriation program, I think people need to understand that. There are now no easy ways out.

        I stopped shy of saying that Wolfie, but you’re absolutely right. This should have been nipped in the bud long ago[for many countries]. Having always gone back and forth between Canada and Britain, I have seen a hell of a change in the past 25 years and the Britain as we knew it is no more. And that takes away OUR culture and customs!

        In Canada, the word Christmas[because it offends non- Christians] is a word now we dare not breathe in public. That is not on! If we moved to Iraq we would not insist they change their laws,customs and dress to suit us! And would be beheaded for even thinking it!
        Again, at the expense of sounding like a racist yob, if they don’t want to assimilate then they do need to go back. They can’t leave their homelands but carry them on their backs,expecting their adopted country to be just like their old country. Why bother even emigrating? Unless, it’s an agenda to ‘take over the world ‘[which I suspect it is][given the muslem views, that I have known who make no bones that they believe they will!].

        Amen, Wolfie. Uber, there are groups who come and individuals, to join a new land, to fit in, to assimilate and work hard. Has any decent person any objection to that, as long as they’re properly vetted on the way in and can bring something to the land?

        But then there are this other lot. And repatriation really needs to be devised in a humane and fair way.

        I have to say even though I support the notion that Immigration Controls are needed (and that it can’t happen as a member of the EU) I would be dead-set against the idea of a repatriation program… I would consider it illiberal, and I don’t as a rule believe an illiberal act begets a liberal outcome.

        I have plenty of issues with Immigration, but most of my frustration is with the Govt/EU.

        People are coming in faster and in greater numbers that infrastructure can ideally support. Putting controls on Immigration would/should not be a policy made in isolation. For a start the UK needs new houses, towns, schools, hospitals & roads to be built not only to support the increase in population, but also to replace decaying, grey sinkhole estates where people of all colours and nationalities are currently destined to wallow away in, often by misfortunate circumstance of birth.

        Welfare reform is another key area. I am an ex-pat in Ireland, and here there are no where near the same strains on the welfare system from EU benefit tourists (though it does exist as an issue), and generally Ireland was building house “during the boom” . House prices are much more sensible here because welfare expires after a few months if you haven’t found a job. It has been historically affordable to build your own house, though I understand the red-tape brigade are about to strangle the life out of that being a realistic option for the numbers that have done so before. Bizarrely enough, immigrants who can’t find work and didn’t bring enough cash to support themselves take have taken themselves off home and those with needed skills or money to support themselves come in their place.

        People who have come already to Britain legally should not be punished by changes in the law. And infrastructure programs would over time alleviate over population in urban areas.
