These two events are indicative of the general feeling that the “people” have had enough of the powers that be treating us as if we are a commodity, with no concerns regarding the feelings we have of being placed second all of the time. Political Correctness and the accelerating Islamification of our nation has brought us to a tipping point. However, there is still much to do, but with the “people” realising that they can make a difference, by making the effort and challenging the “big” people, who knows what can happen in 2017!
So, what needs doing?
Well, for one, we actually need to remove ourselves from the EU. Our Prime Minister, Theresa May has promised she will, by 31st March 2017, invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which is fairly straightforward and is as follows:-1. Any Member State may decide to withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements.
2. A Member State which decides to withdraw shall notify the European Council of its intention. In the light of the guidelines provided by the European Council, the Union shall negotiate and conclude an agreement with that State, setting out the arrangements for its withdrawal, taking account of the framework for its future relationship with the Union. That agreement shall be negotiated in accordance with Article 218(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. It shall be concluded on behalf of the Union by the Council, acting by a qualified majority, (a qualified majority shall be defined in accordance with Article 238(3)(b) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union), after obtaining the consent of the European Parliament.
3. The Treaties shall cease to apply to the State in question from the date of entry into force of the withdrawal agreement or, failing that, two years after the notification referred to in paragraph 2, unless the European Council, in agreement with the Member State concerned, unanimously decides to extend this period.
4. For the purposes of paragraphs 2 and 3, the member of the European Council or of the Council representing the withdrawing Member State shall not participate in the discussions of the European Council or Council or in decisions concerning it.Yes, that’s all. However it does seem that a lot more is being made of this process than is actually necessary. Why we cannot simply tell the EU we’ve voted to leave and that’s it we’re off, I fail to understand? We shall see what develops over the next three months. In the meantime those who voted against us leaving the EU are still wailing about how we must have another referendum and that the country will fall down the toilet as a result of us leaving. We used to call these people “bad losers”. Sadly for the bad losers we live in a democracy and, so far, the Brexit result is being upheld.
UKIP, with Nigel Farage as leader, can certainly be very proud of their involvement in the achievement of Brexit but until we are definitely out they need to stay alert to foul play such that a full and complete break is not achieved.Certainly many of us are very much looking forward to our total separation from the EU and the removal of all symbols of it!
But that’s only the start, other events to look forward to in 2017 include the collapse of both the Labour Party, partly as a result of Jeremy Corbyn’s abysmal leadership and partly through its failure to address the concerns of the traditional working class support, and also the collapse of the Liberal Democrats, who seem to have largely disappeared down the same hole as their Mr Nobody leader! Then, if Brexit goes according to plan, UKIPs work will be done and their support will fall away rapidly leaving many without a political home.
So what then? The hope, in Nationalist circles, is that such a mass will work together towards a Nationalist agenda, which hopefully will be tailored to the needs of the 21st century and not that of the 20th. The latter would be a big mistake and not a feasible way forward. There are many problems from which Nationalism currently suffers and these need urgent attention in overcoming, not least is some unity! However, until sensible people sit down and discuss sensible solutions to these problems rather than dwelling on their own little empires and beliefs, which are, frankly, time-expired, then there will be no progress. We will not win this war by whinging on Facebook or Twitter etc. Ego’s and petty squabbles need to be left at the door and an agenda, a manifesto for the 21st century needs to be drafted, discussed and agreed whilst ensuring it is rasoned enough to appeal to the concerns of the general public and not just to hardcore Nationalists.
Sterling efforts are being made in Nationalist circles to begin this process via the London Forum and lately the South West Forum but more needs to be done with some form of timetable and basic plan of what needs to be achieved and by when. The time has never been better for us to take the initiative and move this forward before it is too late. Hopefully more met will be put on the bones of these hopes in the months to come, so keep an eye on this blog.
