not think that this will be limited to the subjects of the United
Kingdom. He wants to make us "a model 21st century nation."
Thatís right, we will be the model, you will be the clay. As he
Labour, confident at having modernised itself, [is] now the new
progressive force in British politics which can modernise the
nation, sweep away those forces of conservatism to set the people
we are, yesterday the party, then the nation: you do not have
to be intuitive to see where this leads.
make it clear that the USA will be included in his plan, he says
"there is no choice between Europe and America." The
idea that America can escape the pull of the New World Order is
to Mr. Blair unthinkable. Mr. Blair will make sure that America
plays its part. "Britain has the potential to be the bridge
between Europe and America." For a man who hates the very
concept of national (rather than economic) interests, he makes
the strange statement that "Britain is stronger with the
US today because we are strong in Europe." So you know whose
interests you will be called to defend.
Blair is at his best on Kosovo of course. The fact that no mass
graves have been discovered and that Serbs and Gypsies are being
murdered at the fastest rate since the Holocaust does not stop
him. For the truth does not matter to Mr. Blair. I will reproduce
his demented rant on Kosovo in its entirety, to show just how
far truth is a stranger to this demented half-wit:
wouldnít Clem Attlee and Ernie Bevin [two Labour ministers in
the 1940s] have applauded when in Kosovo, faced with racial genocide
in Europe for the first time since they fought fascism in the
Second World War, it was Britain and this Government that helped
defeat it and set one million people free back to their homeland?"
people are being set back to their homeland? The Albanians who
were forced into Tirana due to the bombings? Or the Serbs being
forced into Belgrade due to the racial murders?
cornerpiece of Tony Blairís policy is a gradual surrender of our
sovereignty to Europe. Not that he says
this openly. "I pose this simple question: is our destiny
with Europe or not?" Well we do happen to be a little over
twenty miles away from it, and on that level, the question is
nonsense. It is on another level that he raises the question:
do we want to surrender our ability to make decisions independently
of Europe? As the British like the idea of having democratic control
over their own affairs, he falsely portrays it as "an economic
union in which 50 percent of our trade is done, on which millions
of British jobs depend."
ANOTHER CONSERVATIVE FORCE
George Orwell's 1984,
the Party said "War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery"
to which Mr. Blair can add, "Sovereignty is Interdependence."
If you want to see a real exercise in Orwellian "double speak,"
read this: "What threatens the nation-state today is not
change, but the refusal to change in a world opening up, becoming
ever more interdependent." Thatís right, the nation state
is threatened, by refusing to lose its sovereignty! If Tony Blair
was not so intellectually lazy, I could almost believe that he
was going mad.
GOODS NOT SOVEREIGNTY
aside the deliberate
lies in this speech, the very concept that you can only trade
with a country if you lose your freedom is equivalent to the attitude
of Japan before Commodore Perry. It makes no sense: if I buy from
WalMart I donít have to become their slave. So if I buy from France
and sell to Germany, they donít have to tell me to take up imperial
measures and raise tariffs against American products.
HIS OWN MOUTH
on he laid out his stall domestically as well, and the goods are
shoddy and dangerous. He starts out with a typically messianic
phrase: "Today at the frontier of the new Millennium" which
is a surprise to those who think that the Second Coming did not
start when he attained power. He then states that he will "make
it a century of progressive politics after one dominated by Conservatives."
Those of us who thought that internationalism and the welfare
state are not conservative are presumably wrong. This must be
one of the most historically illiterate leaders the world has
domestic ambitions of Mr. Blair are a useful measure of the man.
They are simple, to steamroller all domestic opposition.
years in existence, 22 in power, we have never, ever won a full
second term. That is our unfinished business. Let us now finish
it and with it finish the Tory Partyís chances of doing as much
damage in the next century as theyíve done in this one."
must avoid the inconvenience of another party holding power, or
in Mr. Blairís terms "doing damage."
make quite certain that you are in no doubt of what he thinks
he quotes a "letter I got last week from a man who said did
I know the Tories had been listening to Britain. They canít have
been listening too hard, he said. Theyíre still here." Even
a month after he made that disgusting speech this "joke"
still gives me a chill. It may be perfectly acceptable for the
idiots who write these letters to make these fatuous points, but
it is not acceptable from the idiots who receive them.
RADICAL, THEY ARE EXTREME
theme that runs through his speech is that "the more useless they
[the Opposition] get, the more extreme they get." So not
only are they not fit to govern, but they are extreme. But what
is extreme? The idea that terrorists and gangsters should give
up their guns before release from prison and going into government
is extreme. The idea an independent country should control its
own currency is extreme. Most of all, the idea that taxes should
be lower is extreme. The type of leader who thinks that liberty
and parliamentary democracy are "extreme" is not the
type of leader one really wants to have global influence.
President Clinton, Mr. Blair enjoys manufacturing straw men to
destroy as his enemies. However, just as President Clinton is
accusing the imperialists in the Republican Party of being isolationist,
and, perhaps, waking the latent isolationism of the American populace,
Mr. Blair could be in danger of doing the same with the British
people. Like the lawyers defending Louise Woodward he may give
the British people a false choice between his argument and the
unthinkable, and find that the jury choose the unthinkable. Let
us hope so. It may be true that if we left the European Union
"Britain would no longer [sic] play a determining part in
the future of the continent to which we belong." However,
Europe would also stop playing a determining part in the future
of an island to which it neither belongs or is welcome, and that
is a true prize.
will not labour too long on the rest of this name calling, except
to give a further glance into this all-powerful manís state of
mind. His list of domestic enemies also includes:
nationalism Ė socialist nationalists being "just the forces
of conservatism by another name."
of IRA terror
Labour Party members
who belong to Trade Unions
at private hospitals
who just can't be bothered."
is in fact hard to find anyone on the planet who is not
against Mr. Blairís Brave New World.
OF THE SMEAR
course if we do not agree to Mr. Blairís totalitarian vision we
condemn ourselves to perpetual outer darkness. The fact that the
Conservatives are adamantly
against leaving the European Union does not seem to bother
this dishonest man. He will condemn the global free traders of
the right as followers of "narrow-minded isolationism"
while saying that confining ourselves to the white manís club
of the European Union is somehow outward looking!
OF A LIE
dishonesty does not end with his portrayal of his opponentsí aims,
but also with the results of these fictional aims. "But what
is certain is that we would not be a power." Not so fast
Mr. Blair, a "power" in equity is an entity with some
ability of independent action. As a (failed) lawyer, Mr. Blair
should remember this. Remaining in the European Union as it continues
to become a state is the only way to ensure that Britain
is no longer a power. If we lose our independent decision-making
ability, we are not a power; it is as simple as that. The fact
is that Costa Rica would have a greater right to call itself a
power than Britain. He says, "the nation-state is changing,"
but forgets that this is not the case outside Europe.
who disagrees with this scandalous lie is a "Europhobe"
a new mental disease to be sure who has not made their
own reasoned decision but who has been "blindfold and dulled
by the incessant propaganda." In the 1950s and early 1960s,
some American commentators saw Conservatism less as a philosophy
and more as a mental disorder, and Mr. Blair is nostalgic for
those times. A lot more becomes possible to a man who truly believes
that his opponents have a mental disease. Rules are bent; laws
are broken and lives are ruined. Opponents feel the cruel lash
of a lazy mind. The mania that all his opponents are evil and
deluded is set for a wider stage than merely the domestic one.
case you are wondering, you are not just mentally ill but also
guilty of the most heinous crimes, purely for opposing the Clinton-Blair
agenda. "The forces of conservatism allied to racism are
why one of the heroes of the 20th Century, Martin Luther King,
is dead." That, dear reader, is you you probably
were not yet born, but that is why you must be suppressed. "It's
why another [hero], Nelson Mandela, spent the best years of his
life in a cell the size of a bed." That also is you, although
you spent your life on a different continent. He also mentions
an English racist murder and says that those forces of conservatism
"still keep opposing progress and justice." All this
because they oppose the minimum wage. I am not joking, read
the forces of conservatism are responsible for two deaths and
an imprisonment, what about the force that opposed them? The forces
of Socialism, Mr. Blairís forces, are responsible for millions
of deaths. Hitler was a national socialist, Stalin was a scientific
Socialist, Mao was a Socialist with Chinese characteristics and
Pol Pot was a "true" socialist. If there is no qualitative
difference between those who oppose the minimum wage and those
who shot Martin Luther King, then it follows that there is no
difference between those who describe themselves as "democratic
Socialists" or any other type. There would also be no difference
between the various types of internationalists who want to overturn
the system of sovereign states, whether in the 1930s, 1950s or
now. The forces of Socialism are what gave us the Gulag and the
gas chambers. Mr. Blair makes no apology for supporting them.
TRUTH AT LAST
Mr. Blair has stumbled, unintentionally, on the truth "Iíve
been compared to Hitler, Mussolini and Milosevic," he confesses,
but doesnít say that most of this is from his own party, and not
meant as insult. I would replace Milosevic with Stalin as Milosevic
tolerates opposition. He goes on to say that "maybe they think
I should be indicted for war crimes" well quite.
basic idea of fascism, that individuals are mere instruments of
the State is present throughout this disgraceful speech. Tony
Blair has described the Labour Party as "the political arm
of the British people." Those opposed are simply not British:
it is us, the new radicals, the Labour Party modernised, that
must undertake this historic mission. To liberate Britain from
the old class divisions, old structures, old prejudices, old ways
of working and of doing things, that will not do in this world
opposition, your refusal to attach yourself like a braindead limpet
to all that is "new" just "will not do." This
worryingly Mussolini-like man ends his speech: "Party and nation
joined in the same cause for the same purpose: to set our people
BELONGS TO HIM
if secretly wanting the sobriquet of a Hitler or a Mussolini,
Mr. Blair then claims that "the foundations of a New Britain
are being laid," which leads the less prudish of us boggled.
Later, in his peculiarly verb-less prose he says:
all around us the challenge of change. These forces of change
driving the future:
stop at national boundaries.
wait for no-one and no nation.
right, the idea that a country may not wish to change for itís
own sake, may wish to modify this or that change to maintain the
social fabric or the concept of justice is folly. The "forces
of change" are "universal." What a miserable vision:
democracy, liberty and justice could some day be out of date "traditions."
The idea of a country or an individual shaping their own life
in the surrounding world is ducking the "challenge,"
the ultimate "Conservative" folly.
are those who have the temerity to oppose Mr. Blair. Those who
hold "the old prejudices, where foreign means bad,"
rather than the new prejudices where British means bad, are opponents
who must be liquidated. "Where multiculturalism is not something
to celebrate, but a left-wing conspiracy to destroy their way
of life." Well it is multiculturalism will destroy
our way of life, a left-wing elite is consciously promoting it,
so by definition it is a left-wing conspiracy to destroy our way
of life. The ability to see the difference between tolerance and
the relativist value-free mush of multiculturalism is not yet
a crime. The whole foreign policy mess that we are in now has
been the logical consequence of multiculturalism, where all are
equal and none are tolerated
RATE MIND FOR A THIRD WORLD REGIME
Blair makes great play of being a man with moral purpose, but
this very moral purpose is dangerous. For a man who is so sure
of himself that no dissent is to be tolerated is a man whose morals
has traditionally only been acceptable in the undeveloped world.
It was often said of Mr. Blairís party, the socialist Labour Party,
that it would make Britain into a Third World country. Well, with
his intellectual laziness, his self-confidence born of privilege
and his intolerance of either borders or dissent, we have a dictator
on a truly Third World scale.
