Here is todays (or part of it, the original is here).
There are currently two general elections taking place. The first and more advertised is the fantasy election being conducted within the imagination of the political class, the BBC, the dead-tree press and the vast array of public bodies, quangos and similar running dogs of the consensual establishment. Their views are uniform: Europhile, PC, metropolitan, elitist and wholly divorced from real-life Britain. This virtual election is the one being reported in the mainstream media.
The second election is the one whose result will be reported in the early hours of 8 May – the first occasion on which all the elements cited above will finally come face to face with concrete reality. That reality may, at first sight, be deceptive. It is very unlikely, for example, to be a UKIP landslide; that party’s growth and influence will be more protracted and subtle than to produce such an outcome in 2015 (2020 may be a different story).
Nevertheless, UKIP is the historic catalyst in this election. It is the force that will transform British politics forever. It will not do so by winning a vast number of parliamentary seats, but it will inflict mortal wounds on the legacy parties, especially the Vichy Tories who are heading fast towards the dustbin of history. If you doubt this, just take a look at their conduct. While affecting to despise UKIP, they are obsessed with Nigel Farage’s insurgency, belatedly recognising its potency and squirming in their political death throes.
David Cameron, the man who will go down in history as the destroyer of the Conservative Party, has issued an appeal to those former Tory supporters who have defected to UKIP to vote for him at the election. Why, Dave? Surely you don’t want to sully your impeccable Europhile and PC record by courting the support of fruitcakes and closet racists? Dave said: “I’d say this election is not about sending a message, sending a point. It’s about choosing a government for this country.”
Wrong, Dave. Elections always used to be about choosing a government, but you and your “modernising” clique removed that choice from the British electorate by eliminating the conservative option and merging the three legacy parties into one social democratic entity posing as three separate choices. So, this election is indeed about sending a message, sending a point. That message is that you are Dead Man Walking, Dave, because you have betrayed your party and your country and we want no more of you. Are you getting the message, Dave? You will, by 8 May.
The Conservative Party has a death wish and, happily for all parties concerned, the electorate shows every sign of fulfilling that aspiration on 7 May. And a similar fate awaits the other legacy parties, in no predictable chronology, between now and 2020.
You may, or may not, have heard that in the most recent TV debate, Farage criticised the audience for being (paraphrasing here) ‘even by the usual standards of the BBC, very left wing biased’. The audience booed, but as Gerald says in the post many of us members of the despised public were glad that the matter had finally been raised. It has been very obvious for very many years. And all the non-lefties dared not say a word about it, till Nige.
Here’s another story from Breitbart-London. Having overplayed their hand with the audience, and having had to grant Nige his own show on al-ja-beeb-a in recompense for denying him a place in the main debate…Nige no longer has to pretend to play nice.
The BBC should be “cut back to the bone”, Nigel Farage has told reporters during a walkabout in Kent. The UKIP leader said the license fee should be roughly a third of its current level, bringing it down from £145.50 to £48.50
I would like to see the BBC cut back to the bone to be purely a public service broadcaster with an international reach and I would have thought you could do that with a licence fee that was about a third of what it currently is
Now I just want the Beeb gone. You can’t mend what has been broken so badly for so long. But, why begrudge Nige the opportunity to put the shits up the media-luvvies that have been outrageously biased against UKIP for decades?
The BBC has also been under pressure recently because of the sacking of Jeremy Clarkson. The Top Gear presenter was pushed out of the corporation for a minor altercation with a producer. Clarkson is now suing the BBC because one of their spokesman compared him to the paedophile Jimmy Saville.
