Simon Heffer explaining things about nation-breaking


Michael Winning

A slow day today I am back inside early and so I spot this from Simon heffer. The man seems more sensible than other intellectual bods I know give him credit for. Didn’t he write a book about 15 years ago foretelling all this? It was called “Nor Shall My Sword” I think it was.

When Tony Blair said in 1997 “New Labour is none other than the political arm of the British People” I cringed in horror. Wish I’d done more and worse I think.

And furthermore (to the last post)…


David Davis

Simon Heffer talks sense about our universities (too many) and history (too little and too truncated and deliberately-not-joined-up) as commanded to be taught by the GramscoFabiaNazis. The connection between this and misunderstanding the more serious parts of my post below, is obvious.

Cameron imitating Blair: huge mistake (all will come undone fully, in 2015)


David Davis

It is perhaps too much to hope that UKIP or even the LPUK will be returned to Parliament with a landslide majority in 2010. Other factors apart, ZanuLieBorg will certainly rig the results: it is the job of Jihadist-GramscoFabiaNazis to do just this thing: it is called participative democracy. If not in anti-Labour seats and other enemy-marginals, then certainly in their Rotten and Pocket Boroughs of which they have about  300, which is quite enough for a majority if well-stuffed, and with a bit of luck in others.

But Dave “the Prole” Cameron is storing up potentially-terminal trouble for himself and his party, to some extent right now, but definitely for 4/5 years’ time if he does what Simon Heffer is accusing him of.

Simon Heffer charitably thinks this death-throe-government is incompetent. I say it is premeditatedly wicked.


…Or should that be “death row”, not death-throe…? LOL [Ed.]

David Davis

The current Bill to make it difficult or impossible for MPs to have paying outside interests and careers may look like a “measure against sleaze”. But all it will do is turn Parliament, as Heffer states in that link, into a further-removed-from-reality Enemy Class – nay, an Enemy Superclass – of professional political hacks – which is to say, GramscoFabiaNazi by definition.

MPs, to be able to be truly representative of The People, should have been an Integral Part Of The People. They can do this by having run businesses such as retailers, and factories, or selling second-hand cars. Or by being employees of these firms. Or they can have been good Classical scholars-turned-General Officers such as Enoch Powell.

For MPs to turn into a political Enemy-Superclass, employed by (which is to say paid only by and through) the State, via machinery set up specifically to ensure they can’t do anything else worthwhile, is to permanently sunder them from those whom they were elected to represent the wishes of. It is so elementary but it needs restating clearly.

There are no conditions under which I believe for a second, that this Bill is intended to to anything other than finally break the link between electing MPs and their being actual, democratic representatives. This is deliberate and pre-meditated wickedness, all over again, and they are always at it and always will be, as long as the socialism meme thingy lasts. It   __must__  be extirpated. They understand fully how to destroy liberalism, by making its concepts unsayable and therefore unthinkable. there musy be a lesson here for us, other than Ian B’s fine suggestion in the comment thread of this post of ours here….

This is what Ian B said:-

The answer is simple, David. There is only one weakness in their fortress, and it is only a slight weakness, but this is the weakness we must exploit. Education.

Every belief system requires control of education. Every authoritarian religion knows this. Every political movement knows this. If we are to triumph, we must take their schools away from them- or rather, take the children away from the schools.

Our task then is to discredit schooling. Not to campaign for better schools, or for private schools, or for vouchers or other wealth transfers. We must fight for no schools. To do this, we must fight for real education; that is, the separation of the concept of intellectual development of inviduals from the system of factory schooling.

Our task is to denormalise schools. Our task is to turn schooling into a thing of horror, like child labour; we must seek a state in the future where people will discuss their forebears forced into schools as they now discuss infants forced up chimneys and down coalmines.

Home education, unschooling, self directed learning, individual development. Private tutelage, community tutelage, voluntary learning.

These are our levers. Think of the children they say, using the children as a crowbar. Well, the children must become our crowbar; but whereas our enemies destroy children, we seek to free them. Where our enemies seek to smother them, we must fight for their right to breathe freely.

Down with skool. That is how the evil will end.

Simon Heffer for Prime Minister


He’s not sound on drugs, but at least he gets what Parliament is for.

David Davis

I have little time to write anything else today: perhaps you others can do somethng.

The above title alone should be enough to get Tony’s goat up. I bet you all 17p Tony’s got some paleogeological gripe about Heffer (probably supported waterboarding in the Glorious revolution of 1688 or something, and the “evidence” was posthunously covered up be Sir Francis Walsingham and Robert Cecil – http://www.agentsfor1688truth.org … ) – he seems to have one about every other individual to whom I make even a tangentially-euphemistic reference!

UPDATE1:- Heffer is still “considering” standing against the gardening heffalump. Good thing too: put the wind up the shysters it will, since we need to “send a massage” that we have allowed too many of the wrong sort of people into the Houses of Parliament, while our back was turned to deal with other matters – and we need more non-careerist-charity-shop-type-old-ladies (to whom £65,000-odd with no “extras” would feel like riches), retired-Field-Marshalls-who-don’t-need-the-money, successful ex-tobacconists-who-have-risen-to-run-multiple-chains (and who don’t need the money) and the like.

Iain Dale, who ought to know better on this one, and who is too close to the current Political Class for my liking (he may catch an infection if he’s not careful) had a go at Heffer a few hours ago. Who cares? If Heffer starts a trend, there can be plenty of local people in the constituencies of others. Like Hoon, Darling, Kirkbride, Mackay, and any other scumbag grifters and graspers who refuse to fall on their swords (as they can’t afford to yet, for there may be as much as £150,000 still to be troughed before June 2010.)

I am afraid Iain has misjudged the mood: he is too close to those who still plan to gain, even a little bit, while they can. keep away from them, Iain: we will need your powerful voice to rip the pants off the next lot of mountebanks, who will also be no better than they ought to be, and will if we are not careful, become what they are.

Euro destruction: perhaps, in 1998 I merely spoke too soon.


David Davis

About eleven years ago, I was in a newsgroup called “eurofaq”: I believe it still to be in operation somewhere (probably on yahoogroups now if you want to go searching.) To enliven our internal exchanges with intelligence from elsewhere, I had various run-ins with some starry-eyed young people from something called “YEM”.

To do this, I used to go and lurk on their groups under the name of Jacques Bommaerts, a Belgian “student”, occsionally surfacing to ask seemingly naive questions about the forthcoming Euro, such as how one currency could be imposed on 15 nations – remember! We in the UK were to be for it too! – without either elections or referenda, and under what economic parameters it was to operate.

The responses of enraged and indignant uproar were fun to behold.

Eventually I was rumbled. Years before most of us knew about internetty-stuff, a clever-clogs on the Enemy Staff worked out that my IP address was the same as an identifiable member of eurofaq, and I was expelled from the YEM crowd amid showers of rotting cyber-cabbages and virtual-tomatoes. But the fun lasted about a year.

At the end, on my exit, I bet one of them £25 that the Euro, starting about 70p, would be under 50p by Christmas. unfortunately it wasn’t and I had to pony up, which I did.

And now, today, we have this Simon Heffer analysis – of where the Euro, and indeed the entire fascist EU project, stands.

Years pass, and I might even have been dead by now, but I’m not, which is fortunate. I have lived to see the day when the Euro might actually come undone, be toast, totalled. Another Rouble-type experiment to actually bite the dust…and in my lifetime too. 

Actually, it’s very sad: I have lived to see that modern people  _still_  let their governments get away with not learning the lessons of History. This is the main problem that I think should concern libertarians, if we are at some distant time to form the very kind of administration which sets out to cull most of the State.

A major philosophical battle will need to take place about de-sovietisation of money, so that no further disastrous monetary union experiments are tried.
