why fascist ‘new’ labour lost the 2010 general election

From an excellent article by Jeff Randall where many commenters gave suggestions on the lines of “Should be required reading for every citizen”.

”Despite its record of fiscal incompetence, constitutional vandalism and disregard for Middle England, Gordon Brown's administration ought never to have collapsed. It had, after all, created for itself a client class of supplicant voters. As part of a grand plan for permanent office, more than one million immigrants were handed British passports (80 per cent of first-generation arrivals vote Labour) and 900,000 workers added to the public-sector payroll.

“More pernicious still, Mr Brown and his ministers were delighted to overlook a grotesque distortion in the make-up of parliamentary boundaries, which meant that a 30 per cent vote for Labour produced about 300 seats, whereas the same percentage for the Conservatives delivered only 200 seats. In short, just about everything that could have been done to bend the system in New Labour's favour was in place by the time the election was called.

“The problem, however, was that the project had been constructed upon a moral cesspit. The party's membership had been taken prisoner by a gang of desperadoes who clung to a conviction that honesty and integrity were disposable luxuries, and substance an unwelcome substitute for propaganda. The upshot was a dystopian regime in which Lord Mandelson and Alastair Campbell were recalled from ignominy to orchestrate a campaign of lavish deceit.

“Together they became Mr Brown's very own Squealer, the insidious porker in Animal Farm who manipulates language to justify his boss's tyranny, while limiting debate and confusing the lower orders. In extremis, when awkward questions persist, Squealer fires off statistics to "prove" that life is improving, and warns darkly against the return of the farm's previous owner.”

A commenter gives an example from the previous regime:

“...my son attended a Job Centre group meeting this week and those present were told to report back if they found a job so that the JOB CENTRE could calculate on their behalf if they would be better off on benefits!”

Another commenter makes a useful suggestion:

“Please, Mr. Cameron, do us all a favour and do a blanket repeal of all legislation over the last 13 years.”

Both Gordon Brown and his predecessor Tony Bliar are/were members of the Fabian Society.

Founded in 1884, with early prominent members such as George Bernard Shaw, H.G Wells and children’s writer E. Nesbit, the Fabian Society’s intention is to impose world socialism gradually through legislation, whereas the Bolsheviks prefered violent revolution to achieve global communism.

The society was named after a Roman general, Fabius Cuncator, who used covert guerilla military tactics to defeat the Carthaginian Hannibal and his superior forces. Fabius avoided direct confrontation, instead wearing down his opponent with elusive hit-and-run actions. The Fabian Society also prefer camouflaged actions and a hidden agenda.

“John Dewey is considered the father of “progressive” education, with the deliberate dumbing down tactics that dominate today.” [Quoted from middletownca.com]

Dewey is also famous for his advocation of a ‘spiral curriculum’. This amounts to telling the student ever more refined lies (approximations) - I regard this as bad pedagogy. Better you teach through observation and empiricism [see Laying the foundations for sound education and How to teach your child number arithmetic mathematics.]

The 1887 mission statement was:

“It (The Fabian Society) therefore aims at the reorganization of society by the emancipation of land and industrial Capital from individual and class ownership…The Society accordingly works for the extinction of private property in land…”

how the alternative vote option works

AV cannot be relied upon to distribute votes ‘fairly’, or proportionally.

Consider you have 6 candidates,
and the winner gets 44%, say the Conservatives;
and the second gets 36%, say fascist ‘New’ Labour;
the third gets 6%, say UKIP;
the fourth gets 5%, say the leftist fake Lib-Dems;
the fifth gets 5%, say the watermelons;
the sixth gets 3%, say the BNP;
and the last gets 1%, say the Socialist People’s Front.

In reverse order, the Socialist People’s Front second choice will naturally go to the Labour Party, who will then have 37%.
Same with the BNP, fascists move to 40%.
Same with the watermelons, Labour go onto 45%.
Likewise the leftist fake Lib-Dems, Labour get 50%.

The third party vote will not be counted.

If you still don’t get this, then try substituting a real Liberal Party, who would also go Conservative, for UKIP.

If you think this looks generous to Scotland, it is. These figures are based on the dubious process of allocating all North Sea taxes to Scotland.

political priorities, uk

The first concern of most MPs is not the electorate’s interests, but theirs.

Any new election threatens MPs’ places at the trough. That may well concentrate the ‘minds’ of the worst of them.

The Conservatives could easily run a minority government. Much of their manifesto is correlated by the fascist Labour Party and the fake Liberal-Democrats. What the fake Liberal-Democrats will not support, others will. What fascist ‘New’ Labour will not support, the fake Liberal-Democrats will.

The country comes as a very sad afterglow.

The only discussion exercising the ‘minds’ of the socialists is how to set up a blissful dictatorship of the proletariat. We are talking about only one thing, how to set up a socialist dictatorship, a dream likely to be disappointed as a look towards Europe shows. There, most countries have some sort of P.R., while most of the large ones have right-wing governments.

The strong tendency with P.R. systems is to give politicians more power, not less. It is common that small parties gather together, thrash out their desires in private; or there are list systems, where politicians control who is on the list. In each case, policies are stitched up behind closed doors without public input.

Politicians tend to share out the top government posts in a form of Buggin’s turn.

A country gets the government it deserves. We shall discover in good time what that government shall be.

How far has the culture been corrupted by socialism?

A historical note: It is the USA and the United Kingdom which came through the turmoil between the wars with stable government. Contrast this with much of the Continent, where chaos and instability - and worse - was the order of the day with their various systems of P.R.

the comedy and chaos of inward migration

“The truth is that by far the biggest inward migration flow from outside the EU comes from people who say they are coming here to study.”

The native population of Italy will drop from 58 million to 8 million by 2100, on present trends.

Virtually all Europe is below replacement levels, and that's with immigrants!

Total fertility rate, countries comparison [cia.gov]

Replacement rates depend on country conditions. The rates vary from around 2.1 for advanced countries, up to approximately 3.5 (due to AIDS and girl killing).
