Elizabeth Jones, UKIP candidate for Dartford, offers the final part of her investigation, which covers UKIP policies here in the UK.
The recent wave of Islamic terrorist murder across Europe has been yet another example of the failure of multiculturalism across the European Continent, as UKIP’s leader, Nigel Farage, has quite rightly and bravely said.
The anti-Western, Islamofascist propaganda agenda which lurks behind much of modern Islamic theory and practice has found ready recruits amongst the ranks of both the educated middle-class and unemployed and ignored of African and Asian extraction in a multiculturalist experiment which was doomed to failure in 21st Century Europe. Many people now fear that Jihad will inevitably come to Europe. Stoking the flames is an EU ‘human rights’ policy of almost unlimited immigration.
You ask is it the failure of Europe to assimilate these millions of muslims. How could that be done? Multiculturalism is not going to satisfy the needs and deeply-held beliefs of anyone whose cultural, political, social and philosophical values are so inherently contradictory to the basic values of Judaeo-Christian European civilisation, such as this protean version of Islam called Wahhabism.
Saying this does not mean that these different values are necessarily wrong in their own rightful place – it means they cannot be expected to mix happily with a system of values in Europe which loudly proclaims equality and secular Human Rights as the most important values of all.
It is therefore wrong for our political elites in the EU’s powerbases in Brussels and the European capitals, including London, to spread what is inherently a lie about our society and blame one group of citizens for failing to assimilate into another group of citizens. What if neither group of citizens particularly wants to assimilate but rather each wants to promote and protect their own distinctive and different identities and values?
The UK has accepted into its borders in the past 30 years, something approaching 10 million people. We cannot continue to be so generous.
But the British media dislikes UKIP out of self-interest. TV and Radio in the UK is massively dominated by the BBC, a liberal elite which funds itself through a compulsory levy on every single household in Britain without having to account for itself, demonstrate a profit, or popular acceptance.
Naturally the BBC knows how to preserve itself so provides what most people want very well – good quality entertainment programmes, documentaries and sport. However when it comes to politics, it is like a government office without a parliament to report to and no elections.
It has a large elite of extremely highly-paid directors but no shareholders, and they all see that if UKIP continues to grow in popularity and succeed politically, we will force changes at the BBC which will mean the end of a rich and comfortable lifestyle for many people who would be unable to find work anywhere else.
The printed press in Britain is mainly owned by around five immensely wealthy businesses, some of which were on the side of Hitler in the 1930s (The Daily Mail for instance). Their influence lies inside the old ‘yesterday’ political parties, like the Conservatives (Times, Telegraph, Mail) and Labour (Mirror, Guardian, Independent), so they also see UKIP as a threat to their established profit bases.
UKIP does get very hard treatment in the British media but we would not censor our democratic freedom of speech or expression one little bit, so we must persuade them of our message, just as we must do so with the British people at large. That is the challenge of democracy – the ballot, not the bullet.
The UK is not a place where revolutions take much root or hold. The British people are open to reason and calm debate, measured and gradual change, if supported, and cautious decision-making.
At the same time, the British hate unfairness and bullying and if the scales of something are weighted against our interests, as they are in the EU, and undemocratic bullies try to push us around, as Brussels does, then sooner or later, the British will decide “enough is enough”.
By signalling their growing support for UKIP at the ballot box, the British people are doing just that, and UKIP’s time will have come when Britain finally decides to leave the EU. Then we start a new chapter in our national history, and that will have been brought about mainly thanks to UKIP.
I am the first woman to stand in Dartford since Margaret Thatcher (except for a very minor candidate representing yoga and aerobics) so in that sense I am very proud. But unlike Mrs Thatcher, I am going to win Dartford for UKIP.
