Priti Patel’s ‘Economically Inactive’ Comments Betray UK Govt’s Hostility to Traditional Family

“Almost communist” comments by the Home Secretary that “economically inactive” people should be mobilised into the workplace have underlined the actively hostile policy environment for young families created by the government, and have angered a vocal group of stay-at-home mothers.

Exact opposite needed – men encouraged into work suitable to them, mothers running the domestic economy with at most part time work. Any govt largesse to children of married couples, hetero only. End of.

This was sent from an American site but no url:

A stable home environment helps husbands achieve their full potential in the workplace — aiding economic growth which the government gives wives no credit for — and is the best possible way to bring up healthy and happy children, she said. Many mothers didn’t have children intending to immediately “hand them over to the state” to be raised, she said, pointing to a school system which forces value judgements onto children that may not align well with those of parents.

It just stands to reason that the trad family is the basis, it enables the man to do his bit and if he doesn’t, then that’s another question.  I contend that a trad Christian man would not be seen dead without a job in those days, dole was a very dirty word in my childhood.

But let me tie in another comment I saw and it is quite indicative, it speaks of the 80s:

Mostly it was due to the school system and the direct order received by someone in higher authority to keep things in constant turmoil. If something works, scratch it and start with something else.  That was the mentality.

That chimes in with what I saw in teaching.  Things were going well[ish], along came open plan, Dewey, Piaget, Bloom, all rabid leftists, suddenly open plan was the rage – new, new, new!

Patel has given the game away, a game these pages have had readers speak of so often but it’s so stark now:

#  Housewife and Motherhood…the two lowest paying jobs on the planet, least respected and the most important!

#  I fully agree with your sentiment! Being a homemaker to your household, a mother to your children and a wife to your husband is a full time occupation.

#  Pushing women into the job market was always an important part of the feminist hoax, and that originally hidden agenda has been revealed for decades. All of it, including mass immigration, is in service of the GDP god worshipped by world “leaders”, politicians, international bankers and corporate giants. The GDP justification for everything has nothing to do with individual values and benefits.

#  A stay at home mom is not a government tax mule and thus of no value to the parasites who rule us.

As one reader said though, not all women are cut out for it, just most. It’s a choice and whether the married couple can afford that.  It’s a choice Patel wants taken away.


Roger Stone Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

Aside from all the other travesties in it, the worst for me were the judge’s closing remarks:

“He was not prosecuted, as some have claimed, for standing up for the president. He was prosecuted for covering up for the president,” the judge stated.

For him to have ‘covered up’, there had to have first been a crime – what crime?  The Senate threw out any notion that there had been a crime.

Therefore the judge was bang out of order and should be either overruled or impeached or both. Tweet I just saw on it:

Why has Judge Jackson continued her gag order on Roger Stone? The trial is over. It’s been over. She has no constitutional authority to continue to silence Stone and violate his 1st amendment right under threat of imprisonment.

    The Deep State most likely have got dirt on the dodgy judge in the Roger Stone case and are threatening her or her family in some way to get her to do their bidding. That doesn’t excuse her.
    Not sure how the appeals system works over there but I expect RS’s legal team to lodge an appeal asap. The judge can claim to her DS masters that she did her bit/followed their instructions and when it goes pear-shaped it’s not her fault. The optics have been good though. Some of the sleeping masses have woken up to the levels of corruption in the judicial system over there. That awakening needs to spread.

    It’s always interesting to see those on the “right” pushing the Frankfurt agenda and wondering who’s really pulling the strings and bankrolling them.

    It used to be that an ordinary working man’s wage was sufficient to fund a mortgage for an ordinary sort of house. Building societies would lend around twice annual wage/salary ( nett of bonus/ overtime etc) . As soon as the market was deregulated, banks offered hugely increased loans, driving up prices so that eventually
    it took two salaries/wages to buy a reasonable sort of house.
    This puts great strain on marriages and is one reason for many broken families.

    Nailed it! All three. Tomorrow, I follow up on the ideological confusion with and article on Red Ed.

    On credit – yes. My father built our home, jack of all trades, on a salary, my mother did some nursing part time. She provided all he needed, the complete service so to speak, they paid it off in three years.

    I appeared on the scene years later, a Boomer who did not know hardship until my thirties. If I’d used the word dole, it would have been soap and water time. Not really, they were not violent.

    The banks, yes. Those two, my parents, used a different word I was shocked by, in reference to shylocks. Different world.
