Take John Key for example. I’m told that even if he possessed the necessary conviction, and intelligence, and ideas, he still couldn’t change things because its the system you know. If he ever started to say the things that should be said, he’d lose votes and Labour would be in office and we’d be worse off.
The same thing goes for all Western leaders. Tony Abbot in Australia has to walk on eggshells. His halting speech and his abject terror of “offending” is painful to endure. In the US, all the Republican Party can come up with is yet another of the Bush family, and that would make three of that family who have failed miserably to turn things around.
I know, we’re in the grip of the political class, and apparently there’s nothing we can do so we just have to play along and do what we can. Meaning most parties who once stood against Progressivism are now pretty much welded to it and /or merely seat warming until they are tossed out and the extreme left resumes its rightful seat of power.
To those who subscribe to the above thinking patterns, let me ask you one question. What about Nigel Farage?
In April 2006 David Cameron described UKIP members as being “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists, mostly.” The year before they had won only 2.3% of the vote. Nigel Farage became leader in September 2006.He resigned 3 years later but became leader again in 2010. Farage by the sheer power of his intellect, his personality and his rhetoric, has brought the party to the stage where some pollsters predict a 20% vote in any general election.
This increase though is most notable for the fact that the Progressive establishment, meaning the Conservative Party under David Cameron, The Labour Party, miscellaneous other spineless parties and the mainstream media and all of its offshoots have all been implacably opposed to the UKIP.
Support for the UKIP has grown in spite of the massive forces of the establishment determined to discredit it and to do everything they can to destroy it. The zealous campaign to kill off the UKIP has been vicious and deceitful and conducted with the full force of the establishment political class. And they have failed and the UKIP has won really because of one factor, and that is Nigel Farage. His conviction, his courage and his ability has faced down the self appointed elitists and he is gathering momentum to such a degree he could quite possibly soon be leader of a party that has displaced Labour or the Conservatives as a major.
So please don’t tell me it can’t be done. That we must silently suffer the Keys, and the Bushes, and the Abbots and the Camerons. It can be done, and Nigel Farage has shown how.
