A guest post from UKIP Reigate’s Peter Lindsay
As we face a Fake Brexit, we should ponder just how it has come about that while nearly 60% of us (if you adjust the actual % vote for Brexit – 52% – for the fear factor generated by Project Fear) want an independent Britain, 85% of our “representatives” (sic) in Parliament – those MPs who supported Remain – want our continued subservience to a foreign power. Are these really our representatives?
One might also ponder why it is that the same representatives have allowed mass immigration over the last 70 years to change the culture of this country, without even asking the native population whether they wanted this. The explanation is that we have been beaten in a bloodless war. To explain:
Britain has not been conquered by a foreign invader for nearly a thousand years. Not militarily, that is. But you can just as effectively “take over” a country by other means. This can be done by either (1) successfully taking over its vital institutions as a precursor to government, or (2) a revolution or coup d’etat. An example of (1) was the aftermath of the Boer War: although the British won the war, the vital institutions – media, education, civil service, local government etc. were all run by the Afrikaaners, who were the majority white population and by the 1920s they had taken over the government. An example of (2) was the Russian Revolution or French Revolution but such coups can happen over time and even without violence.
In the 20th century, Britain suffered a “pincer” attack from both outside – (2) and within – (1). Like a vice closing. Whereas our glorious Royal Navy and RAF had always beaten off a foreign invader, we found ourselves wide open to these more subtle attacks and so we were eventually beaten by them.
