Escape to the Country or White Flight.

Escape to the Country.
White Flight (Fright)
Or Cuckoo in the Nest Syndrome.

The BBCTV programme is called Escape to the Country. In truth it is a chronicle of ‘white flight’ a TV concept that documents and celebrates a modern day phenomena, the displacement, scattering and fragmentation of the indigenous English and Welsh people. Like birds whose nests have been colonized by Cuckoos they flee deep into the English and Welsh countryside hoping to purchase nests close to like-species.

It is a welcome release for those who can afford to look for safety with their own kind in these lovely little villages. One I saw with thatched roofed cottages, a village pond, and a local Church built as early as the 12 century with Gargoyles and  stained glass windows.

Diversity to the long term inhabitants of the village in its true sense would mean very little. If one was to ask mine host in the White Swan what was meant by diversity he would no doubt say it would be the diversity of pubs in the village.

I idly daydream; come election time Mr Damp the village schoolmaster who is standing for the Greens party has promised to lobby for long awaited funding for a public toilet in the village, to press for funding for a new village notice board and to pressurise the local police to seriously investigate and apprehend the miscreant who has been tying party helium balloons around the necks of the Swans on the village pond, a story the local paper the Cockshutt-cum-Petton Clarion has managed to milk on its front page for over two months now, the Yard have been notified.

If one were to ask Mr Damp what he thought of wholesale immigration into this country, his eyes would glaze over and he would shake his head and reply nonplussed “what Immigration?”

These people really are living on another planet, not Planet England. That is precisely why the situation in the UK will deteriorate until the point of irreversibility; the thinking it is fine as long as it is not in my backyard. 

These are the same people bereft of this vibrancy of rich diversity who vote for the status quo at election time suffering with the ‘cus that’s who my dad voted for’ syndrome not realising the England their dad voted at election time does not exist anymore, it disappeared with Gladstone and the Empire because of people like them. It does not hurt until it hurts you. These people are not hurting enough yet.

But of course forced diversity it is not everyone’s cup of tea is it, so escape is the only answer. It is only young chaps in I.T or Bank Manager retirees that can afford properties starting at a half million pounds and up being shown around heritage listed thatched roofed properties built with local stone, with 4 reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen, 4.1/2 bathrooms, 6 bedrooms, a conservatory, a swimming pool nestling on 5 acres complete with horse paddock with breathtaking views overlooking the English countryside, oh and within walking distance of a pub.

It is only the poor white Caucasian that has the opportunity to experience and taste the heady fruits of Diversity. They can experience this within a handshake of their front door and gasp at a kaleidoscope of strangers from the Hindu Kush, poor Pakistani from the tribal belt bordering Afghanistan. Bearded nightshirt wearing strangers walking 6 steps ahead of pram pushing burka clad females gracing the streets of many English towns and cities. 

The beauty of Multiculturism is that it places you within a train ride of Bradford, Birmingham, Oldham, Rotherham, Dewsbury, and a host of other English towns; or to take advantage of a cheap daily return to Tower Hamlets. You don’t need the Cotswolds.

Who could possibly dream up the concept of a lady Blackamoor from the Caribbean showing diversity escapees bolt holes in the country? Perhaps it was a gem by an elderly script writer for the Monty Python show found locked for years in a basement at the BBC. 

As an aside my wife said that while channel hopping, briefly pausing on The Biggest Loser she landed on a TV programme feast called Embarrassing Bodies where the viewers were treated to a close up of a gentleman’s private parts. I shivered is nothing sacred?

If we were to take these TV concepts to the next level how about the BBC doing a reality programme of the redevelopment of the Auschwitz concentration camp. 

Depending on one’s point of view, I am sure a miniscule number of people (Police-speak) would accuse me of commenting in bad taste but there is very little left that has not been televised that has not been in bad taste so why stop now? 

If the said camp is not restored it will soon be forgotten and just deteriorate into a run-down ugly building. The only people visiting Auschwitz these days are Jewish tourists, 120 year old ex-inmates and children’s tour groups.

Any BBC programme person looking for Kudos at a programme planning meeting might suggest a reality programme showing the redevelopment of Auschwitz into 2 bedroom luxury apartments, complete with community swimming pool and easy access by a branch rail to the city. A morning TV breakfast show could even have a competition for a name for the new development. Personally I would remove the jingoistic slogan of Arbeit Macht Frei over the entrance and maybe plump for Dun Roamin’ Villas, it is more welcoming.

Bad government, bad politics, bad taste; take yer pick but be careful who is listening and watching. It could mean 6 months in an Austrian political jail.

Stephen Fry; The God Factor

Stephen Fry: The God Factor.

I was reminded of when we were  regularly visited by Mormon Missionaries. I did question why it appeared that it was our family and our family alone that was being specifically and ruthlessly targeted, I thought only primitive tribes were their victims not someone living in a rural, God fearing  area,  Maybe the sale of the Watchtower magazine improved the lives of these primitive tribes to whom I refer. They have now stopped coming…..the primitive tribes, not the Mormons.

They usually appear with a young person in tow maybe a work experience person, impeccably dressed, clean, God fearing, likeable people. I always had doubts about a supreme being though as did Mr Fry, and with a huge industry backing them with many franchises catering for different Gods and religions there must be something going for it so I chose to have two bob each way. 

Not a good idea said the Mormons it will not assure one of automatic entry into heaven, nevertheless if I were Mr Fry I would spread my money evenly on an each way bet hoping to avoid “Frying” in hell for crimes against………. ‘er well the natural order of things.

HEAVENS! Now this was a subject I always wanted to discuss and they unwittingly chose it. I asked in my innocence where the Kingdom of Heaven might be located. For heaven’s sake these people are professionals there must be a ‘reference’ for its location if not in the Old Testament then maybe in the New Testament as it is mentioned many times in the bible. I lightly tapped with my pencil on the assistant’s bible and pointed out that Revelations might be a good place to start.

The work experience assistant opened his bible looking for a ‘reference’. At last I was going to find out. I could not contain my excitement any longer and like an excited school-girl who was about to tell her parents she had been asked out on a date for the very first time I gushed “is it beyond Pluto or near Epsilon Bootis, maybe near Orion’ belt, perhaps the Horsehead Nebulae? The man said “look we need to get back to you on that one”. I had caught the man’s attention not realising they were intent on not coming back.

As they picked up their bibles to leave I inquired of them can they also do a couple of more ‘location’ checks at the same time for Hades, Hell and the Gates of Wrath? I must admit I was somewhat nonplussed why these religious visitors could not give me an immediate answer to any of these places as they are all well documented in the bible.

An Emma Barnet a religious columnist for the Telegraph headed her article on a video of Stephen Fry denouncing ‘God, should he exist, as “utterly evil, capricious and monstrous’

She said “Thirty years ago to the day, my mother received her confirmation that God exists: ME

Emma dear, I do not want to appear capricious, but it was not necessarily God who was responsible for your mother's delicate  condition I suggest it was your father, her husband.  But she was right when she wrote, “talking and writing about belief in God is considered such a difficult subject that one relative warned me off it entirely: “Emma, just leave God alone and write about something else this week – like the Magna Carta anniversary.” or the Crusades, oops sorry that is me being capricious.

They say one should not discuss sex, politics or religion. So why am I on a loyal, Patriotic website discussing religion well I thought it would make a change from Politics? Sex is a definite no-no; everything relating to sex is becoming blurred. A man’s wife could be another man, a girls husband can be another lady recognised by the church and in a court of law, both satisfying sexually I imagine but not producing offspring, our primary purpose on this earth. 

In my youth sex was never a problem one either liked it or one did not.

In another interview Mr Fry referred to his partner as his ‘Husband’. Very wise move, these things need to be sorted well before the wedding night as it determines who gets to do what to whom and how during the consummation that cements the celebrating of their ‘wedding’.

What was being discussed on forums was the age difference between the Bride and the Bridegroom. Did it matter? There is little danger of an unwanted pregnancy.

Same sex marriages, same sex weddings, same sex engagements, it is still tricky today. Perhaps Emma’s mother did not live long enough to see the future or she would have advised her daughter differently. She would have advised “Emma, just leave Sex AND religion alone and write about something else this week like politics or Magna Carta anniversary” That is probably why I feel comfortable writing about politics.

Stephen Fry may feel that “the moment you banish him [God], life becomes simpler, purer, cleaner, more worth living” – Emma disagrees, but for millions of silent others the polar opposite is true. The question being asked is does he exist at all? Many of the true believers who died on the poppy fields of Flanders or in the withering machine gun fire at Dunkirk will know, and I pray to God any God, there was a heaven waiting to accept them and mend their young broken bodies.

Totalitarianism, Your Future?

Totalitarianism, Your Future.

Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda. Hannah Arendt.

A Nationalist society is completely paradoxical to that of a Totalitarian society. Unless there is a global rejection of all forms of Nationalism there cannot be a Global World Order.

Directions from a highly centralised authority like the European Presidium in Brussels and the loss of National sovereignty, by the forfeit of one’s constitution and the surrender of borders would not be tolerated in a truly Nationalist society. Nationalism in China, Japan and India is a National characteristic that is the good news. The bad news for Europe is what is taking place in Europe is the birth of a New Order, and it is Totalitarian in nature unlike the old USSR which was Authoritarian.

A Totalitarian regime attempts to control virtually all aspects of the social life including economy, education, art, science, private life and morals of citizens. "The officially proclaimed ideology penetrates into the deepest reaches of societal structure and the totalitarian government seeks to completely control the thoughts and actions of its citizens." 

To the point we see laws being enacted to police the thoughts and determine by judicial proclamation the boundaries of rights of thought and expression of its citizens. The Governments sole purpose of a Democratic Government is to govern, not to pry into the private lives of its citizens. The little boy asks of his little school-mate “why you are brown”. That is a criminal offence in Britain today even for a child.

Authoritarian is an extreme version of Totalitarianism, it primarily differs from totalitarianism in that social and economic institutions exist that is not under governmental control. In Europe and the UK that difference is becoming increasingly blurred, what is becoming Totalitarian in nature in Europe will in time become Authoritarian as we are seeing now with the Banking cartels taking charge of the fiscal policies of the EU’s satellite countries.

After WW2 there was NO rejection of Nationalism by the people of Europe it was a decision that was made for them by the victors, this is being achieved by the deliberate ideology of forced Multiculturism which in turn destroys all National and ethnic Identity.

This is a worrying omen; Eric Hoffer, in his book The True Believer, argues that mass movements like communism, fascism, and Nazism had a common trait in picturing Western democracies and their values as decadent, with people "too soft, too pleasure-loving and too selfish" to sacrifice for a higher cause, which for them implies an inner moral and biological decay. He further claims that those movements offered the prospect of a glorious future to frustrated people, enabling them to find a refuge from the lack of personal accomplishments in their individual existence. The individual is then assimilated into a compact collective body and "fact-proof screens from reality" are established. Is this this the mirror of our society?

Today we are not looking at communism, fascism, and Nazism for the answer for a “glorious future for frustrated people enabling them to find a refuge from the lack of personal accomplishments in their individual existence” we are being offered a Totalitarian New Order for Europe. It could be debated our values are decadent, with people "too soft, too pleasure-loving and too selfish" to sacrifice for a higher cause, which for them implies an inner moral and biological decay but the answer will not be found in a New Order for Europe, only servitude.

Domination by a government of all political, social, and economic activities a nation, totalitarianism is a phenomenon of the twentieth century. Earlier forms of despotism and autocracy lacked the technical capacity to control every aspect of life. The term is applied both to fascist governments and to many forms of communism.

One alternative is democracy; it is Government BY a very small group of extremely wealthy and influential people, FOR the people, BY this same small group of very wealthy and influential people. This is the way it is and is the way it has always been. Understand this and you will understand your special place in the scheme of things.
