The Candour ABC of Politics

I remember Rosine de Bounevialle from the early sixties, she was a brave little woman and a dedicated Empire Loyalist. The AK Chesterton Trust published her book 'The Candour ABC of Politics' to mark the one-hundredth anniversary of her birth in 1916. She traces the decline of Western civilization from the French Revolution and observes that almost everything from education to manners and morals has deteriorated, including the Catholic Church, to which she was devoted. She was a traditional Catholic and an old-fashioned conservative but she had a mind of her own. Her hero was Leon Degrelle the Belgian SS general who fought for the Fuhrer and never apologised. And she admired William Joyce, the pugnacious Irish-American broadcaster who was executed for treason to Britain.

Rosine took over as editor of Candour when AK Chesterton died in 1974, and she kept it going until her own death in 1999. Colin Todd now edits the magazine.

Her book ends with a biographical chapter which gives some indication of her spirit and determination. She had started a wartime job as a switchboard operator for the Government and was told to report for duty:

The very first day when I entered this suffocating place, two "seniors" approached me and asked if I was a "Union" member. I said, "No, I don't believe in Unions." The reply was: "Why ever not? We just got you a 'cost of living rise." "Yes," I said, "Before that, I received two pounds ten shillings a week, after the 'cost of living' rise, which was one shilling and sixpence and put me into the Income Tax paying bracket, which tax then came to ten shillings a week. I now receive a Net income of £2-1-6 (two pounds one shilling and sixpence, instead of the two pounds ten shillings I had originally!" The Union reps faded away.

'The Candour ABC of Politics' is available from the AKC Trust: www.candour.org.uk 

That's What They Want You to Think

I once tried to explain to a conspiracy theorists that his condition was a symptom of paranoia probably related to depression. He replied: "That's what they want you to think."

Conspiracy theory is widespread on the far-right. I once heard a lecture from a Spanish professor who thought that the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland was a Nazi time machine that would eventually send us all back to the thirties. The poor fellow was as mad as a hatter but his audience gave him a standing ovation.

Another speaker, a former BNP councillor from Liverpool, managed to cram several conspiracy theories into a half-hour speech. It was the Full Monty; the Protocols, the Frankfurt School, Cultural Marxism, and the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan. He ran out of time but not conspiracies.

I agree with Joe Owens on conspiracy theories, he says even if they are true, we should avoid them. Professional conspiracy theorists, like David Icke, can fill stadiums and sell books but his followers are a tiny minority. Normal people do not think that the Queen is a shape-shifting reptile.

The use of the word "they", as in "that's what they want you to think" is important. It's "they" who are stealing our culture and our agriculture. It's "they" who are flooding the country with immigrants, and it's "they" who are responsible for all our misfortunes. 

We await the results of the Grenfell Tower inquiry but the conspiracy theorists have already decided that the disaster was caused by criminal negligence. And some of them speculate that the fire was started deliberately to get rid of council tenants who are occupying valuable real estate. It is, after all, the sort of thing that "they" would do. 


Conspiracy theory can be a social handicap like Aspergers. Saying "that's what they want you to think" to a group of normal people is as embarrassing as shouting obscenities at a vicarage tea party. It is also a progressive affliction. Conspiracy theorists rarely stop at 9/11, or the Kennedy assassination, they invariably go on to harder things, like the 'murder' of Princess Diana, or the terrible truth about Prince Charles' overcoat. Eventually, they are snubbed by polite society and forced to seek the company of fellow sufferers.


Coudenhove-Kalergi



According to a leading nationalist, the EU is a “genocidal tyranny” that is destroying the White Race as instructed by the Coudenhove-Kalergi Foundation. Count Coudenhove-Kalergi was an Austrian aristocrat who founded the Pan Europa movement in 1922. He was well connected to the statesmen and financiers of Europe and he is regarded as one of the founding fathers of the European Union. Being half Japanese, on his mother’s side, he was naturally tolerant of race mixing. In his 1925 book Practical Idealism he wrote the following:

“The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today's races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals. 
Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that these people that escaped Ghetto-Prison developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore, a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit. This happened at the moment when Europe's feudal aristocracy became dilapidated, and thanks to Jewish emancipation."


This was his own philosophy, based on his Freemasonic beliefs. It is not part of the manifesto of Pan Europa and has never been the policy of the European Union. The Count’s followers set up a foundation in his memory and they award prizes to individuals who have furthered the cause of European unity. But that does not mean that the recipients are committed to race mixing. Anyone can set up a foundation and dish out medals, it does not mean that they are in charge of anything.

Mass migration started in the UK in 1948 and by the time we joined the old Common Market in 1973 we already had millions of Third World immigrants. This obviously had nothing to do with Coudenhove-Kalergi or his obscure book. The Third World invasion was driven by economics and promoted by Tory and Labour politicians.

Margaret Thatcher, who was elected in 1979, famously said that she understood people’s fears of being “swamped.” Her words helped to destroy the National Front but she did very little to control immigration.

The Euro Referendum campaign was dominated by immigration. The popular Press convinced a gullible public that it was a European problem. In fact, the majority of our immigrants come from outside Europe and have nothing to do with the EU. 

Mass migration is welcomed by big business because it provides cheap labour. Employers have no interest in Race, they are only concerned with productivity. They are motivated by profit and our politicians are motivated by self-preservation. They are just as pleased with Black or Asian votes as those from native Brits. The Coudenhove-Kalergi nightmare is just another conspiracy theory; an attempt by sincere but confused people to make sense of the world.

Brave New World

The BBC documentary series Panorama recently covered the latest developments in genetic engineering. "Medicine's Big Breakthrough" is available on iPlayer.


Medical research continues to unravel the secrets of DNA and scientists are finding ways of treating genetic abnormalities, not only in the patient but in his progeny. Defective genes that are passed down through families can be edited out, and it's even possible that conditions such as addiction can be eliminated.


For many years environmental conditioning has been held responsible for human behaviour but the latest research is restoring the traditional belief in inheritance. Some families produce children that graduate unfailingly from reformed school to prison. Members of the criminal underclass randomly father children, mistreat women, abuse drugs and alcohol, and sponge on the State. Social Workers tell us that they can be rehabilitated with large sums of money, but our common sense tells us that they are wasters who will never be any good. Now, it may be possible to correct their criminal behaviour by genetic engineering. Where the social reformers have failed the scientist might succeed.


At present most DNA is a mystery but we are making progress and we may soon be able rid humanity of inherited defects both physical and mental. 




The so-called 'mercy killings' carried out by German National Socialists, and Swedish Social Democrats, in the forties, are not the same thing. They were playing at God by killing human beings but we would simply be mixing chemicals in a laboratory. Of course, once the science is perfected it's difficult to believe that we would not use genetic engineering to produce the healthiest and brightest babies. This may be interfering with nature but it could be seen as part of the evolutionary process. 


Aldous Huxley described a world devoted to genetic engineering in his 1931 novel 'Brave New World'. It was seen as a critique of authoritarianism but GK Chesterton took a different view:


"After the Age of Utopias came what we may call the American Age, lasting as long as the boom. Men like Ford or Mond seemed to many to have solved the social riddle and made capitalism the common good. But it was not native to us; it went with buoyant, not to say blatant optimism, which is not our negligent or negative optimism. Much more than Victorian righteousness, or even Victorian self-righteousness, that optimism has driven people into pessimism. For the Slump brought, even more, disillusionment than the War. A new bitterness and a new bewilderment ran through social life and was reflected in all literature and art. It was contemptuous, not only of Capitalism but of the old Socialism. Brave New World is more a reaction against Utopia than against Victoria."


Whatever we think about genetic engineering it's here to stay. We cannot put scientific knowledge back in the box, but we can use it to our advantage.


Patriotism and Nationalism - Last Refuge of the Charlatans by Eddy Morrison, Aryan Unity Dec 2001


The editor of this e-zine started off his political life as a "patriot" and a "British Nationalist" - way back in 1967. Since that time I have evolved my philosophy and worldview so that I have gradually and gladly thrown false plastic British patriotism and Nationalism overboard - and replaced it with the much bigger view. That view? National Socialism and Pan-Aryanism.


To quote Lincoln Rockwell on the subject: (from In Hoc Signo Vinces) "What, in the name of the most elementary reason, is the difference whether Bartholomew Buckingham is born near the Thames, Hans Schmidt on the Rhine, Pierre Dubois on the Seine, Per Olafson in Stockholm, Eric Erasmus in Durban, Joe Doaks in Pondok, Ohio, or John Smith in Auckland, New Zealand, compared to the question of "Shall there be any more Bartholomews, Hanses, Pers, Erics, Joes or Johns?"


All over the Aryan World, Parties (not Movements!) are raising their heads and trotting out the tried-before-and-failed policies of "respectability", "populism" and tactics and strategy which drop principles on the grounds that "they are vote losers", whilst at the same time these groups look upon themselves as oh so clever in that they are disguising themselves as moderates and distancing themselves from us "crank nutzies" (and I quote one of their "Leaders" referring to me.

Dropping one's principles for the very dubious reward of gathering votes from the wrong people and gaining new members - members who are attracted by the watered down policies. Members who wear underclothes with their national flag on, or shop with Union Flag carrier bags stuffed with imported foreign goods. People who shed a crocodile nationalist tear when the State structured "Last Night at the Proms" (in the UK) lets them be openly "patriotic" for two hours once a year!


We have seen this before. The moment the chips are down and the Zionist controlled media start screaming "Nazi" and "Fascist" then these new members and voters will disappear like the March Violets they are. The soft sneaky way to victory is not the way of the Aryan. We have always faced the enemy head on and accepted the risks. To quote Rockwell again: "The only thing to which I can be loyal with any deep conviction - the only loyalty that makes any sense - is my racial, and therefore cultural brotherhood with my own people, no matter where they happen to have been born!"


Reject the purely geographical notion of "Nationalism" and embrace Racial-Nationalism and Pan-Aryanism which knows no borders. United the Aryan Folk can survive the New World Order Holocaust which is planned for us - but whilst we play the game of being respectable and wave our bits of coloured National Flags and ignore the great world struggle between the Aryan activists and the New World Order, then we are fooling ourselves, our people and we are wasting criminally valuable time that we do not have!


President Donald Trump



The President of the United States should not concern us in the UK. We are Europeans with our own problems to worry about. But we are so tied to the US politically that we cannot ignore the man in the White House. Before he took office in January 2017 Donald Trump made a series of promises to the American people. He said that he would improve relations with Russia, disengage from the Middle East, abolish 'Obamacare', and build a wall on the Mexican border.


So far, he has imposed economic sanctions on Venezuela, Russia, Iran and North Korea, he is still involved in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, he failed to get his medical insurance reforms adopted and has made no noticeable progress on the Mexican Wall.

Failed promises are well known to us in the UK. Our prime minister vowed to control immigration, build more houses, and balance the budget. But we don't expect her to do any of those things.

We live under a mad system where politicians spend millions of pounds, or dollars, to get elected, with no intention of making good on their promises. There is no control over them. They can promise what they like because they will never be held to account. There are no trading standards to protect voters. Makers of soap powder are not allowed to make false statements about their product but politicians are free to tell lies.

Donald Trump promised to get out of the Middle East when he was campaigning for president but he has increased America's military presence. He commands formidable armed forces and Theresa May is his loyal and obedient servant. If he decides to invade Iran in defence of Israel we will be with him all the way. Having destroyed Iraq and Afghanistan it seems inevitable that we will destroy Iran.

The American industrial-military complex needs another lucrative war but Russia, China and North Korea are far too powerful. Trump will probably go for Iran, and if he does Britain will be with him. We may not be able to afford our National Health Service but we will find a few billion pounds to kill Iranians. They have never done us any harm but they are the enemy of Saudi Arabia - one of our best customers.

The UK has been tied to the United States since the Second World War. Our only attempt at an independent foreign policy was thwarted in 1956 when British and French forces were ordered out of Egypt by President Dwight D Eisenhower. Our currency was tied to the dollar by the Bretton Woods Agreement until the Nixon Shock of 1971. Since then the pound has floated but oil and other essential commodities are traded in dollars. Our armed forces are under NATO command, and our Trident missiles are made by Lockheed Martin and kept at King's Bay Georgia. So much for national independence.

The German Election

Angela Merkel's CDU has won the German election with 33% of the vote, the Social Democrats were second with 21% and the AFD party was third with 13%. Angela Merkel has been punished for letting in the Syrian refugees in 2015. There has been trouble involving immigrants and refugees in several German cities leading to the rise of the nationalist AFD.

Angela Merkel did not let in the refugees as part of a dark conspiracy but because she is a compassionate woman. As a girl, she belonged to the East German youth movement but so did every one of her generation. She is not a Communist she is a Christian Democrat. 

With Russian help, Bashir al Assad is winning the war in Syria and refugees are beginning to return. When the war is finally over Syria will need manpower to rebuild the country and a great return of refugees will be required


The refugee crisis was the result of EU dithering. Europe should have acted promptly and not allowed the situation to degenerate into chaos. Hopefully, lessons have been learned. Refugees are fleeing from war, famine and poverty from all over Africa and Asia. The Italians have reduced the seaborn influx from Libya to a trickle by arming and training the Libyan defence forces. But a joint European effort is required to defend our continent from invasion.

Nation Revisited #131 September 2017

All articles are by Bill Baillie unless otherwise stated. The opinions of guest writers are entirely their own. This blog is protected by the UN Declaration of Human Rights, Article 19:
"We all have the right to make up our own minds, to think what we like, to say what we think, and to share ideas with other people."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Irish History

Northern Ireland is a province of the United Kingdom bordering the Republic of Ireland. It is populated by native Irish who are mainly Catholic and the descendants of Scottish and English settlers who are mainly Protestant. The Catholics generally support union with the South but the Protestants want to stay British. 

The absentee landlord system during the Irish Potato Famine was so cruel and inefficient that a Royal Commission was appointed under the Earl of Devon to look into it. It reported:

"It would be impossible to describe the privations which they (the Irish labourer and his family) habitually and silently endure...in many districts their only food is the potato, their only beverage is water...their cabins are seldom a protection against the weather...a bed or a blanket a rare luxury...and nearly in all their pig and a manure heap constitute their only property."

These inhuman conditions resulted in widespread famine and emigration which denuded the country and prompted the Young Ireland Rebellion of 1848. This was confined to the South East and crushed by the Royal Irish Constabulary but it led to the rise of the Irish Republican Brotherhood which became Sinn Fein in 1905.

In 1886 Gladstone introduced a Home Rule Bill but it was opposed by the Protestants in Northern Ireland and by the House of Lords. In 1909 Parliament was reformed and John Redmond gained the balance of power, but a quarter of a million Protestants signed a "Solemn League and Covenant" that Ulster should remain in the United Kingdom. Home Rule was postponed and the First World War commenced.

In 1916 five hundred people died in the Easter Uprising and fifteen rebels were subsequently executed. The rebellion had not been popular in Ireland but as a result of the shelling of Dublin and the executions of the ringleaders, Sinn Fein won a landslide general election and immediately declared the Irish Republic.

The Government of Ireland Act (1920) established Stormont as the Parliament of Northern Ireland and the Dial as the Parliament of the Irish Free State.

Between 1921 and 1972 the voters of Northern Ireland consistently returned the Unionist Party to Stormont. However, the British government, in response to the Civil Rights movement, acted to reform the electoral system and introduce power sharing. In 1973 a referendum in Northern Ireland confirmed that a majority supported the Union. In 1974 the Ulster Unionists called a strike which brought down the Stormont government.

There followed four more attempts to impose power-sharing until the Anglo-Irish Agreement was signed in 1985. This was enforced by a massive police and army operation to contain
a murderous bombing campaign by the IRA, the military wing of Sinn Fein. In 1998, the Good Friday Agreement
established a cease-fire and a mutually acceptable power-sharing arrangement. This was largely due to the efforts of Ian Paisley of the Democratic Ulster Unionists, and Martin McGuinness of Sinn Fein. Two men from different traditions
who overcame their prejudices to work together. Unfortunately, both men are now dead and their successors are not so amicable. 


Ian Paisley and Martin McGuinness (Belfast Telegraph)

It's ironic that Theresa May is propped up by the DUP when her opposite number Jeremy Corbyn is a longstanding friend of Irish Nationalism. The peace of the last twenty years was achieved with the UK and Ireland in the European Union. With Brexit on the horizon, it's not clear what will happen to the border or the peace process.

Electoral Performance

The results achieved by minority parties in the 2017 general election were pathetic. Most of them got less than 1%, whereas the winning Tories got 42% and the Labour Party got 40%.

Before Ukip, patriotic parties made little impression on British politics. Oswald Mosley's BUF was a mass movement before the war but they never got an MP elected to Parliament, and they were seriously damaged by the Second World War.

The National Front had a brief period of popularity in the seventies until Margaret Thatcher said that she understood people's fears of being "swamped" by immigration. She won a landslide election in 1979 and the NF was practically wiped out.

R
ecently, the BNP had scores of councillors, a Member of the London Assembly and two Members of the European Parliament, but it was all blown away by Nick Griffin's embarrassing performance on Question Time.

Ukip convinced the general public that immigration was a European problem and, with the help of the popular Press, they forced a referendum. But having achieved their ambition they no longer have a reason for existence.

This is hardly the time to announce the rebirth of the White Nationalist Party but that is just what Eddy Morrison has done. We don't need another party obsessed with Islam and Brexit but a modern party that stands for social justice and European solidarity would be welcome. 

Minority parties are disadvantaged by a first-past-the-post system that was designed to perpetuate the status quo. Their first priority should be electoral reform, but they opposed it when it was offered.  

They should concentrate on propaganda and forget about elections until they have sufficient support. That's how the Green Party got elected in Brighton. They focused on a single constituency instead of standing all over the country. 

Brainwashing

Advertising works. The Martini TV commercial, featuring Leonard Rossiter and Joan Collins, turned the aperative into a worldwide success. In 2011 General Motors spent $4.2 bn on advertising and Ford spent $3.9 bn. The IT company AT&T spent $2.9 bn and Verizon spent $2.5bn. In the USA most large corporations spend 2% of their income on advertising. The Coca-Cola campaign has made it the best-known brand in the world.

Advertising boosts the sale of products and negative advertising is just as effective. In 1974 over 40% of people in the UK smoked. But health education backed up by punitive price increases, and a ban on cigarette advertising has reduced this figure to 19%.



A similar campaign has made drinking and driving socially unacceptable. People are not just frightened of breaking the law, they are genuinely against drunken driving. 

Payola is the illegal practice of record companies paying radio stations to plug their records. The term was coined by DJ Alan Freed who testified to a Congressional Committee in 1959. Fellow disc jockey Phil Lind admitted to taking $22,000 to play records. There is no doubt that constant repetition sells records.

If people can be persuaded to drive cars, give up smoking, take taxis when they are drunk, and buy targeted records, they can certainly be influenced by propaganda. Mass circulation newspapers like The Daily Mail and The Sun are guilty of brainwashing. False propaganda, such as the £350 million for the NHS, fills our heads with nonsense. The 'Will of the People" is really the will of the press barons.

At present liberalism is the order of the day and political correctness is strictly enforced but if we had a government committed to European values the mass media would follow suit. People are not born with opinions. They are influenced by experience and education and much depends on who controls the brainwashing of the nation.

President Donald Trump is a politician with Jewish grandchildren and billions of dollars. He is not a Nazi sympathizer but a Republican who told the truth about the mob that attacked free speech in Virginia. His view was immediately challenged by Theresa May who made a predictable statement absolving the Black Lives Matter thugs for attacking people with baseball bats. This was a perfect example of the type of 'false news' that has misinformed the masses. It's unfortunate that a lad from Ohio used his car against the mob because most of those demonstrating against the destruction of America's heritage were law abiding citizens. 

A Plan for the Future

The 'just about managing' government of Theresa May goes from crisis to crisis. Almost every government department is under-funded and the one percent cap on the salaries of medical staff, firefighters, police, and teachers cannot be maintained as inflation reaches 3%.



On top of all her other worries, Theresa May is now faced with a massive bill for re-housing and inspecting hundreds of tower blocks in the wake of the North Kensington disaster. Local authorities can't be expected to foot the bill but the work must be done.

The Government has simply run out of money but they are frightened to raise income tax or reduce public spending. The Labour Party have promised a spending spree if they get into power but those of us who survived previous Labour governments know that they always end in tears.

We can't afford to maintain our National Health Service, replace our nuclear power stations, renew the Trident missile system, build high-speed railways, equip our new aircraft carriers with fighter planes, and pay the Brexit bill. These ideas were conceived when we were booming but we can no longer afford them. A sensible government would cancel some of these projects but the doctrinaire Tories are not for turning.

We are in the grip of a national emergency that requires urgent action. We should appoint a National Government, as we did during the Second World War. We should abandon the dream of 'independence' and draw up a recovery plan based on realistic targets. There's no point in pretending to be a world power when we can't afford to pay our nurses a decent wage. Instead of poking our noses into the Middle East we should equip our armed forces to patrol our borders, and instead of boasting how much we give in foreign aid we should look after our pensioners. It's time to forget about the Empire and look to the future.

Britain has the potential to be a modern European country with a high standard of living. But we need to invest in our industry and education and stop relying on imported goods and workers. We proved in the last war that we have the determination to succeed; all we lack is leadership and organisation.    

Hidden Government

This book is well written and worth reading but it relies almost entirely on the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion; an anti-Semitic book first published in St Petersburg in 1903.

Lieut Colonel J Creagh Scott DSO OBE wrote 'Hidden Government' in 1954 but most of it would be familiar to modern readers. He blames the Jews for the Russian Revolution, despite the fact that Lenin was Russian, Stalin was Georgian, and the leading Bolshevik Jew, Leon Trotsky, was murdered by the NKVD. 

He blames the Jews for the Balfour Declaration which promised Palestine to the Jews, but without it, America would not have come into the First World War and we would have been forced to make peace with the Central Powers. He also blames them for the Bretton Woods Treaty which tied the pound to the dollar and provided a massive American loan, but in 1944 we were bankrupt and had no choice in the matter.

He accuses Jewish bankers of making money out of nothing but he doesn't explain what happened to Lehman Brothers in 2008 - why didn't they just make some more money?

To bring us almost up-to-date he blames the Jews for passing nuclear secrets to the Russians. But not all Jews are criminals and not all Gentiles are model citizens. Meyer Lansky, Bugsy Segal, and Arnold Rothstein were top Chicago gangsters but Al Capone was a good Catholic.

The Jews always claim the protection of the State but they have backed revolutionary movements from the Spartacist revolt against the Roman Empire to the African National Congress in South Africa. Perhaps it's because they remain apart from the rest of us that they have an exaggerated sense of identity.

If the 'Protocols of the Learned Elder of Zion' are genuine this book is a damning indictment of the Jews but if they are false it's simply a catalogue of unproven anti-Semitic accusations. The 'Protocols' were exposed as a forgery by the investigative journalist Lucien Wolfe in 'The Times' in 1921, unfortunately, he was Jewish and therefore 'suspect'.

Lieut Colonel J Creagh Scott was a decorated soldier who served in the South African War and the First World War. He was badly wounded on the Somme but despite his injuries, he devoted the rest of his life to farming and supporting AK Chesterton and 'Candour'.

'Hidden Government' is available from the AK Chesterton Trust. www.candour.org.uk

Princess Diana 

It's twenty years since
the death of Princess Diana. Like many people, I felt as though I had lost a close friend when she died. I had never met the woman and I have no interest in the monarchy but her death filled me with sadness. I guess it was because her picture was constantly in the papers that I felt as though I knew her.


Most people shared my grief but others did not. Some even thought she was a traitor for having an Egyptian boyfriend. And the conspiracy theorists indulged themselves in lurid fantasies involving MI5, or Mossad in a diabolical assassination plot.

Diana was a beautiful young woman with healthy instincts, she was an aristocrat, the mother of our future king, and a constant irritation to Buckingham Palace. But if she had lived the life of a saint she would still have attracted the attention of the lunatic fringe.

At the time the monarchy got the public's reaction completely wrong and Tony Blair got it exactly right. She was "the people's princess" and the failure of the Royals to fly immediately to London was a low point for their 'business'.

The funeral was handled with professional care. Her two boys bravely followed their mother's coffin and loyal crowds of mourners lined the flower bedecked streets. It was a State Funeral in all but name that was watched by a worldwide audience.

Princess Diana's small minded critics can enjoy their spiteful fantasies but we will never see her like again. A member of the Royal Family who acted like a normal human being, empathised with people, and had the smile of an angel. Rest in Peace Diana.

Mussolini

I thank my Italian comrades for their gift of a memento of Benito Mussolini. Seventy two years after his death the Italian Navy is patrolling Libyan waters to control the people smuggling gangs that have proliferated since Dave Cameron helped to destroy the stabilising regime of Colonel Gadaffi. History repeats itself and Europeans are once again obliged to intervene in Africa. The Fascism of the 1940s is no longer applicable but our continent is crying out for leadership. Communism collapsed in 1989 and Capitalism is overwhelmed with debt. We need a fair and modern system that will unite Europe. Fascism was defeated by a worldwide alliance that no longer exists. Who knows what the future holds?

Nation Revisited # 130, August 2017

All articles are by Bill Baillie unless otherwise stated. The opinions of guest writers are entirely their own. This blog is protected by the UN Declaration of Human Rights, Article 19:
"We all have the right to make up our own minds, to think what we like, to say what we think, and to share ideas with other people."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Human Condition

Fifty years after the Sexual Offences Act we look at the Human Condition. In 1975 Colin Jordan was convicted of stealing three pairs of red knickers from Tescos. He may have been fitted up by the police - who knows?  A similar story was told by PG Wodehouse in his novel 'The Code of the Woosters' in which Sir Roderick Spode, the leader of the Black Shorts, was revealed to be a secret designer of women's lingerie.


Miss Rotha Lintorn-Orman

Personal foibles are found in all sections of society. Nick Griffin, the leader of the BNP in its heyday, was accused of misappropriating the party funds. He was also accused, by Martin Webster, a former organiser of the National Front, of having an affair with him. But in an article entitled "Putting the Record Straight", in "Identity" Dec 2003, Griffin unreservedly condemned homosexuality:

"The vast majority of the party, and of our natural supporters are entirely happy with our position on homosexuality. This. in brief, is that it is not a 'valid lifestyle choice' akin to deciding what colour shirt to wear, but a form of behavioural deviancy with a shocking impact on the health and happiness of many of those who suffer from it.

Additionally, there is clear evidence that homosexuals, even in the modern climate where they are favoured, rather than an oppressed, group, still tend to identify with their own kind, and with other 'minorities', rather than with the nation as a whole. This leads nationalists to an ideological as well as a moral and practical rejection of homosexuality, since any group which sets its own kind up as more important than the nation of which it is a part is divisive and damaging to that nation". 

In practice homosexuality was ignored. The original British Fascists were founded in 1923 by a decorated First World War ambulance driver, Miss Rotha Lintorn-Orman. She was a fearless patriot but, reputedly, a lesbian, an alcoholic, 
and a drug addict.

Oswald Mosley's loyal post-war organiser Alf Flockhart was sent to prison for homosexual offences, and the playwright Joe Orton, who was murdered by his gay lover, was a frequent visitor to the North London branch of Union Movement.

But not everyone was so tolerant. Chris Vernon, writing in John Tyndall's "Spearhead" in August 1999 had this to say:

" The very vocal queer lobby is led and encouraged by so-called 'personalities', including a lot of actors - names and faces familiar to many households, whose addiction to buggery confers upon it some sort of 'respectability' in the minds of more simple folk. Of course, no headway will be made by the pointless crime of 'queer-bashing'. Instead, we need to bring the discussion out into the open - into the pubs and clubs and over the garden fence. We need to quiz our would-be MPs on their views on this subject and reject soft, meaningless answers. Above all, we have to convince society of the pressing need to push these people offstage and assert the morality that made our nation great. If I may revert to my own vernacular of the 1930s, it is time to tell these nancy boys that we have had enough of them! "


Drink was part of the pre-war fascist culture. AK Chesterton was a reformed alcoholic and William Joyce was as drunk as a Lord when he made his final emotional broadcast from Hamburg.

Some Union Movement members had a reputation for drinking but when we meet nowadays for reunions most of our elderly comrades drink halves of bitter or orange juice.
With a couple of notable exceptions, wise heads and weak bladders prevail.

Oswald Mosley seldom touched alcohol but he was an aristocrat and behaved like one. Pre-war country house parties were organised around adultery. Priapic guests in dressing gowns and slippers crept from room to room at night guided by dutiful servants. It was clearly understood among the ruling class that marriages were made strictly for commercial and dynastic reasons.

John Tyndall's only known weakness was for Mars bars but few of us are so blessed.


European Socialism

Oswald Mosley's essay on European Socialism was printed in May 1956 in the German monthly "Nation Europa."  He explains the concept under six headings; Europe a Nation, Government with the power to act, linking production with consumption, rewarding effort, and taxation. He goes on to discuss the Wage Price Mechanism and concludes with an appraisal of Fascism:



"We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity because science has broken so many bonds, and has so greatly enlarged the horizons of men. It seems to me therefore, true to say that we present a new creed to meet new facts. And the emphasis of differences in this discussion between what we advocate and the pre-war policies of Fascism appear merely to prove this point.

It is suggested that the leaders of Fascism and National Socialism, so late as the 1940s had contemplated  some form of European movement  which would transcend nationalism. I will go further and recall from my own experience the very favourable reception they gave to my own advocacy of a united Europe in an article entitled in English "The World Alternative", which was published in Germany by Geo Politik in 1937; so from my own experience I can confirm and pre-date this event. Yet the sad fact  remains, whatever the merits of the dispute or the justice of the cause. Europe was divided and temporarily destroyed shortly afterwards in a fratricidal war which had the narrowest of national origins! Many then had such feelings, but remained the prisoners of their time. It seems to me unnecessary and undesirable in practice to debate at length whether, as I think, and can prove in some detail, we formulate a new creed, or whether fascism with its "doctrine of imminence", "perpetual reappraisal and reorientation" could transform itself sufficiently to become approximately the same thing. It is sufficient to agree: "it is needless to deny that the fascism of 1919 must be inadequate to express the needs of our time"; there we can agree, and further debate would only lose time in splitting hairs. What matters is whether we agree now, and the debate has shown a considerable communion of principle can be developed.

If men in an age of new facts are prepared to find new policies to meet them, they are our natural companions; provided of course, that we hold together that all-important "spiritual kinship". What would have rendered co-operation difficult would have been a tendency in German or Italian friends simply to regard all truth as contained in the original revelations of the Fascist and National Socialist revolutions.  In that event we should have left such Italian and German friends to debate between themselves whether final truth was revealed to man in the year 1922, or in the year 1933, while, in our dull English way, we got on with answering the question of what to do now. But, as the discussion has shown, this view is happily not present to any serious thinkers. I have, however, sometimes come across it during my European travels and labours. It is one of two rival stupidities, as I term them. The first is to say that nothing good came out of fascism or national socialism. To such a crude error the crude answer is: then begin by flooding the Pontine Marshes and ploughing up the Autobahn. The second is to say that the final truth was declared before the war, and that those programmes should never be varied or developed. The second error is nobler because it is born of loyalty which is one of the highest qualities, while the first error is born in spite which is one of the lowest. But they are both errors, and elementary errors. In fact we Europeans are part of an organic process which has already 3,000 years of great history and is moving to ever higher forms. It is at one with nature as are all real things, because nothing can succeed in defiance of nature's laws. Nature works not in steady progression, but in great leaps after long lethargies; and the greatest of all these forward springs is expressed by modern science. That is why for practical purposes all things are new after the cataclysm  which precipitated this great advance. For this reason we must think again; then act most strenuously, and on a greater scale than ever because we have greater possibilities. But we remain in the service of the European spirit in a movement to ever higher forms, which began millennia before us and will continue long after we are gone."

National Front Immigration Policy



The National Front website features an article by Kevin Layzell (pictured) calling for a ban on immigration and a start to repatriation. The United States and the European nations are deporting illegal immigrants but the leader in this field is Saudi Arabia. Since the fall in the price of oil they have repatriated 2.5 million Indians and are they now dealing with Ethiopians and Filipinos. The Saudis have 9 million immigrants in a population of 31 million. They claim their immigration policies are purely economic but they are not deporting Egyptians, Syrians, or Palestinians - just non-Arabs.

We should adopt the same policy - keep those who share our culture and deport those who do not. Now that Brexit looks likely the NF can concentrate on immigration. We can't put the clock back to 1948, when the infamous British Nationality Act was passed, but we can start by deporting illegal immigrants, convicted criminals, potential terrorists, and volunteers.

Left, Right and Centre

The terms Left and Right date back to the French National Assembly of 1789 when the King's supporters sat on his right and the 'independents' on his left. Today, things are more complicated. The Tories aspire to be the party of the workers, and the Labour Party is trying to appeal to the middle class.

The National Front is supposed to be a right wing party but they believe in the nationalisation of the banks and public services. 

The New Right movement in the UK was pioneered by Troy Southgate, a libertarian who describes himself as a National Anarchist.

The Candour group are monarchists but their founder, AK Chesterton, was a leading member of Oswald Mosley's pre-war movement and a fierce critic of finance capitalism - hardly a right wing position.



The Traditional Britain Group are self-confessed 
conservatives but they are opposed to globalisation. Their Vice President, Gregory Lauder-Frost (pictured), was recently in the news for criticising the appointment of Doreen Lawrence to the House of Lords.

The truth is that politics is a circle. If you keep going left you end up on the right. History seems to bear this out. The Russian Bolsheviks were sheltered by the German Empire. The German National Socialists were financed by big business. The Labour Party invented the slogan "Britain for the British", and the Tories imported most of our non-European workers.

I agree with the National Front on immigration, the Lib Dems on Europe, the Labour Party on nationalisation, the Greens on defence, and the Tories on grammar schools. Many of us find points of agreement in different parties and most of us change our politics as we grow older. The great French poet and novelist Victor Hugo (1802 - 1885) was a monarchist in his youth and a republican in old age. He is remembered for his novels "Les Miserables", and "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame" but he was also an ardent European with the gift of prophesy:

"A day will come when you France, you Russia, you Italy, you Germany, you, all the nations of the continent without losing your distinctive qualities and glorious individuality will be merged within a superior entity."


Parliamentary Democracy is a Fraud - Colin Jordan



Parliamentary Democracy is a fraud: a confidence trick. It is not government genuinely representative of the people and expressive of their will. One fact suffices to prove this, although there is other proof galore.

The great majority of the British people never wanted the Coloured Invasion of their homeland, but it has been imposed on them nevertheless, and laws brought in to compel acceptance of alien occupation and control. What this dishonest system do is to present a deceiving fa├žade of public consideration, deference and accountability, while effectively rigging the situation for the permanent dominance of its beneficiaries by shaping the public mind to its purposes by media indoctrination and by denying facilities to those other than its proprietorial parties and approved elements who are representative of a virtual dictatorship by the real ruling forces in the background.

The Old Parties are but variations, bogus alternatives, within the same system. They put on an act of combat, but really they are a consensus committed to the course of Britain's decline and downfall. All of them support the Coloured Invasion and the enforcement of multiculturalism, and alien influence on our affairs from both within and without. The system sets up from time to time, when it seems advantageous, bogus options such as currently the Referendum Party of the billionaire financier, the Jew Sir James Goldsmith, to side-track and dissipate discontent. This fake puts on an act of standing for British sovereignty against foreign regulation from Brussels, but has nothing to say about and against foreign, including Jewish influence in London conceived by him and his followers as compatible with British sovereignty. Tony Blair and his freshly packaged Labour Party is reckoned most likely to win the 1997 General Election. He is hugely Jewish financed. £500,000 has just been given to him by leading Jewish business men including Sir Trevor Chinn, Britain's biggest motor dealer (Lex Service); Alex Bernstein, former Granada TV chairman; Bob Gavron, publishing millionaire who himself recently gave £500,000 to the party; Sir Emmanuel Kaye, chairman of Lansing Bagnall; and Michael Levy, head of N&G Records.

What of those outside the Old Parties, namely those who accept all of this condemnation of the system and its operators, but who think that the thing to do is to seek to change things by getting a new party elected to power?

These well intentioned people fail to realise that they are doomed to failure by the foreseeable reaction of the power-holders. These may allow them to expend time and money in electioneering so long as they get nowhere near seriously challenging their position, but the moment the new party becomes a real challenge - an almost inconceivable achievement considering its handicaps - the present power holders will most certainly by one unscrupulous means or another halt that new party and put it out of business. Either its functioning will be rendered impossible by the application of every imaginable impediment, or that new party will be criminated as "racist" and it or its electoral participation prohibited.

The one and only right response to this system is to say "No" to it by boycotting the ballot box, not to bolster it by taking part in the next General Election, for electoral participation is to play the party game of our enemies, and so to play into their hands. The one and only way to register your rejection of the whole system which is ruining our race and country is to stay away from the polls and not vote at all. Don't Vote.
