I was out pushing leaflets for the local elections this afternoon. I was invited in for a cup of tea by a supporter I had visited before; in fact, I arrived just as her carer was delivering plates of food. This lady has cancer and is obviously in a very, very feeble physical condition
But her mind and spirit were far from feeble. She was as sharp as a tack and well up to date with many of the local and national political nuances.
Her first question was: “How do you think we are going to do?” and so the discussion ranged far and wide, particularly into the effectiveness (or lack of it) of UKIP and our relevance to local and national issues.
I told her that I had been out the past week and had been surprised at how well I had been received by a number of people I met who had no hesitation in identifying themselves as our potential voters, and there was particular emphasis on “I would never vote Tory” (which I took to mean they were ex Labour voters who understood this coming election was all about preserving the referendum victory – as it is just that!)
You will gather my conversation with this lady was very positive and, coupled with my public reception, was encouraging and inspiring and I came to the conclusion that we have been overdoing this business of ‘beating ourselves up’ and believing the poison that we are now irrelevant and thus finished – a poison that has been put down by the contaminated legacy and failed politicians and their contagious establishment friends.
For years we have slightingly been dismissed as ‘just a pressure group’ and we have proved them all wrong; we are worse than that. We are the dreaded ‘whistle blowers’ or, as the CIA prefer to call our ilk, ‘enemies’ (of democracy? ha ha ha) – strange how people don’t like hearing the truth! But I am afraid UKIP are guilty of allowing all our critics to get away with the ‘big lie’, rolling over and saying mea culpa and giving up on the 17.4 million ‘leavers’ who put their trust in us.
Magpie May has half-inched 50% of our policies and now Corbyn has taken the other half – I seem to remember it was UKIP and the peoples’ army who identified the Parliamentary and establishment swamp, not the dishonest Labour Remainiacs who knew there was an immigration problem.
Well! I for one am not prepared to lay down and die; many of those Labour voters who voted LEAVE were part of Nigel’s Peoples’ Army and voted for an end of EU in UK and an end of our Quisling elite establishment who hoodwinked us for over 40 years.
Get out there and fight, UKIP! There’s far more support than you think, just waiting for a lead.
Nigel has said he is right behind Paul so be it – let them get out and organise ‘Peoples’ Army meetings up and down the country; re-assemble the ‘GO’ Grassroots Out gang of speakers.
This is our one chance don’t let’s blow it!
One frail little lady is depending on us!!!!
Finally (you thought I’d finished) …
A big ‘thank you’ to Mrs May – I do believe you have saved UKIP; your timing of the calling of the
General Election could not have provided a better opportunity for UKIP to re-unite and be at the forefront once more of the daily agenda, and a superb opportunity to demonstrate the relevance of our contribution to local government and affairs with the national need for a strong Brexit.
It should be realised that UKIP is the only political organisation uncontaminated with 40-odd years of failure and brainwashing by EU ‘think’.
Our children are being brought up and taught by their schools that they are ‘children of the EU’; their loyalty is not even to their parents or their country, not even their history is now their own. How can we expect loyalty and service to this their own birth country?
This concept of EU ‘think’ colours every aspect of our life, not only in schools but in local government, universities, our hospitals and care services, and I cannot stress how difficult it is going to be to eradicate it from the very soul of our being. But it should not be difficult to recognise that UKIP as an uncontaminated party is the only one qualified to rid us of this cancer at grass roots level.
It should also be noted that Mrs May has also re-opened the great immigration scandal by reiterating her party’s commitment to reducing it to ‘tens of thousands’ – very brave of her. It again reinforces the value and legitimacy of UKIP in being the ‘whistleblowers’ in the face of mass vituperation of this disease. It was UKIP that said the country is ‘full up’. Yes, maybe some or many of these people have contributed to the economy, but it is sheer pressure of numbers that has led to crisis-ridden A & E services, extended times for appointments with doctors, lack of council houses for British citizens who have been on a waiting list for years – it does not appear to cross government’s minds that additional bodies require additional resources. UKIP must enter this debate at local level.
‘Change’ will not be easy and of necessity it will have to come from the top down allocation of resources, but identification of ‘needs’ can only emanate from those who experience the day to day difficulties. UKIP must be a big part of this work at local level. So at the same time as we are getting rid of EU STINK at national level, we should be getting rid of EU THINK at local level.
Fighting a revolution is heady stuff. Winning the peace is more of a slog. We’ve done the one; now we have to settle down and do the other.
