1959

 

 In 1959, Christian Great Britain, had effective schools, reasonably paid, regular serious employment, government supported marriage and government support for having children, affordable British holidays, most families were extended and closely located, and close knowledge of their long term neighbours, the local parish church was the central local cultural force, for many some savings were possible and the idea of owning a small family business, a shop or a garage was near.

 There was no mass immigration, no legislative devolution and no membership of the eurostate.

 There was no mass abortion, no mass loneliness, no mass debt, men largely worked in physically active and socially bonding jobs in heavy industry, defence or the nationalised industries providing or making necessary things.

 Women largely stayed at home rearing children (and reading to children) while contributing to the local social fabric and institutions.

  British society was relatively orderd, secure, free, stable and peacefully governed, by the rule of law under our unitary parliamentary constitution.

Battle of France

 The primary threat to the unity of the United Kingdom comes from the Conservative Party then the

Labour Party only then the SNP and the others.

 The Conservative Party has initiated two referendums on the Union.

One has taken place and one is pending.

 Neither the Labour Party or the SNP has initiated a single referendum on the Union

(putting  to one side Labour’s devolution referendum’s in 1978 and 1997).

 It is not just the institutional Union that is in peril.

 The Union is not an abstract institutional entity or an empty vessel waiting for new contents.

  It is a Christian, social, economic and political nation which is a Union.

 The Conservative and Labour programmes of mass secularism (“equality and diversity”), mass poverty (and debt) and mass immigration (and abortion) are dissolving the United Kingdom. 

Unionism’s limited resources spent on attacking the SNP, while not in the first instance attacking the

Conservative Party (then the Labour Party) are wasted.

 It is like throwing Great Britain’s finite resources into the Battle of France.

The Thin Wall

 

There is a thin wall between what remains of our (historically) ordered society and it's complete breakdown.

 Of course, enough electricity is still (just) being generated and transmitted through the national grid, powering cash machines and gadgets, the water, food and fuel distribution networks continue to supply the large supermarkets but as we have mentioned over the years, these highly digital managed logistical systems are highly exposed to disruption.

 The dissolution of the homogenous Christian cohesive society upon which, our binding social elements have all been built (the same religion, history, language, customs, conventions, habits, mistakes, manners and general behaviours) and which provided us with practical strength during emergencies and war has had it’s impact.

 These are largely gone, many do not even know their neighbours never mind speak the same language as them.

This lack of self recognition and “social intimacy” is the unspoken gap in the local fabric and of the nation itself.

 In the event of a local or regional or national emergency this gap will make things worse not better.

We have also highlighted the absence of national and local organisations and the essential resources that would provide public protection and defence in the event of a local, regional or national emergency.

 The British Army (and Royal Navy and Royal Air Force) and police forces are depleted and what remains is far to preoccupied with "equality and diversity" courses to deliver in strength and force the reserve and emergency provision that may be required.

 The TA has been abolished and the Civil Defence Corps (comprising 330,000) no longer exists.

 The organisations and institutions of government cannot function properly today while the weather is thankfully mild and thankfully there is no local, regional or national emergency.

 In 2017 most homes are poor.

Most homes do not have reserve provisions of water, food, medical supplies or fuel.

 The Conservative and Labour parties have created this exposure.

 

 

11th November 2017

 National Breakdown

Day by day, we are witnessing, the political breakdown of Great Britain.

 Government in the narrow and wider sense is dissolving while the various, institutions and organisations of government, increasingly do not fulfil the purpose that they are meant to and are now simply vehicles for the new secular state's “equality and diversity” propaganda, this is especially so in the armed forces, schools and the police.

 Defending the country, protecting and educating children and enforcing the law has been replaced by the overriding objective of indoctrination into the new code.

 British Government and parliamentary representative democracy, in any real political sense, is now coming to an end and it is being replaced by a new intrusive secular state power.

 The Conservative and Labour establishment cannot put this right. It is that establishment that has brought us here over the past 50 years and they intend to keep us here until what has been the United Kingdom is finished and replaced by a vassal territory.

Economy,

Politics by Any Other Name

 

As the price of butter and interest rates go up and wages go down, it is a key political period.

 Since 2007 cheap money (ultra low interest rates), released money (savings and pensions) and “funny money” (private bank invented credit and QE) have pumped up a false economy.

 As the nation dissolves, the national economy dissolves.

 The economy reflects national moral, social and political preferences and priorities.

Our economy no longer reflects a Christian nation based on the family unit and local social bonds neither does it reflect a serious provision for defence, public infrastructure or heavy mass (male dominated) industry.

 It is now a debt based shallow “service” economy fuelled by mass abortion, mass immigration and the mass conscription of mothers into the work cult.

 The economic data also shows the “diversionary” economy.

 These are the popular entertainment and “leisure” activities engaged in to divert from the daily poverty and misery of the majority of the British people.

 A national economy cannot function simply through kebab shops, nail bars or tattoo parlours even less so through the "financial" sector or Tata Range Rover cars.

 The United Kingdom is now travelling on a moral, social and economic vapour trail of our past.

 1976 and All That.

 The emergence of punk rock in 1976 brought to an end the lingering traces of the hippy countercultural revolution of 1966. Of course, the oil crises of 1973 also played it’s part but the arrival of punk with it’s no frills, no nonsense attitude and it’s DIY ethos reflected profoundly British characteristics of individual independence, eccentricity and raw brutal force.

 While punk blew away the artistic hangover of the 1960’s “counterculture” revolution, regrettably there was no political equivalent to remove the hippy “progressive” politics that by then embedded itself into highest reaches of the establishment not least in the church and education.

 1976 seems like a solid date to identify the final chapter of British nationhood and it’s moral, social, cultural, economic and political disintegration until 1989 and the final victory of the “progressive” revolution over any remaining empirical, traditional, and small “c” conservative political formation.

 The defeat of Mrs Thatcher in 1990 was certainly not about the “Poll Tax”, or even the EU, it was ultimately about the defeat of the last traces of political Britain. Mrs Thatcher with all her faults and all her wrong policies (many of which she later recanted, not least the 1985 “Anlgo-Irish Agreement") represented a political Britain, which in the opinion of our enemies, had to be brought to an end.

John Major represented the first step in the new age of non political Britain. John Major was Tony Blair before Tony Blair was Tony Blair.

When Tony Blair became Primeminister in 1997 he built upon the foundations that John Major had laid down.

  With Blair the “progressive” revolution had finally taken control of the levers of power and they have kept them to this very day either through the Labour Party or the Conservative Party.

 The "progressive" revolutionaries have done their work:

 The established religion has been abandoned and marginalised while a godless state is constructed.

 The social bonds are loosened and float and bump away into the night.

The serious economy is now a memory and has been replaced by a debt economy.

 Our parliamentary democracy has been sidelined.

 There is no sign of the nation that resolved itself to fight in 1939.

 There is no sign of the nation that was forging ahead (a working balance of tradition and progress) in peacetime 1959.

 There is no sign of the nation that in 1979 could still muster serious masculine industrial might in order to strike.

 There is no sign of the nation that in 1982 could, just, manage to coble together a fighting fleet and defeat Her Britannic Majesty’s enemies thousands of miles away.

 There is no sign of the nation that even as late as 1989 could still generate and imprint it’s British political signature on it’s morality, social order, economy and culture.

 That nation has now gone.

 If you want it back, you know what you need to do to get it back.

Statement

1967 Abortion Act

The 27th of October 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act receiving the Royal Assent.

Since then there has been over 8 million abortions in

the United Kingdom.

Abortion has had a deep moral, social, economic and political effect.

It has altered the natural demographic composition of the

United Kingdom and it is being used as a cover for mass immigration.

The BUP supports the repeal of the 1967 Abortion Act and the restoration of the law to the pre - 1967 Abortion Act status which provided for the immediate medical consideration of both mother and child.

Not Spain

 

There has been much comparison between the challenge to Spain’s integrity and the challenge to the United Kingdom’s integrity. 

commonrepresentation.org.uk campaign has nothing to say about the affairs of Spain or any another country, it is none of our business.

 However regarding the actions here of the Conservative and Labour and Liberal parties in regard to the integrity of the United Kingdom and the Conservative Party initiated referendum on the Union in 2014 we have plenty to say.

 Not least......

1

The United Kingdom is a singular, unitary and integral parliamentary representative democracy and it’s composition (it’s unity and integrity) was authorised by the UK electorate in the general election of 2010 and could only have been re-composed by another subsequent general election (as it was in 2015).

 2

In 2010, 59 out of 59parliamentary constituencies across Scotland authorised their MP to go and sit in (be part of the whole – to accept as valid and binding the authority of the British Parliament) the British Parliament including six SNP MP’s who all stood on a representational not an abstentionist manifesto.

 3
Rather than defend the integrity of the British state, the Conservative and Liberal government with the support of the Labour Party opposition instead chose to ignore the established parliamentary, constitutional and legal authority of the state in order that the rule of law and the integrity of the Nation could be overthrown under the cover of a fictitious referendum “authority”.

 Note

The legislation which set up the referendum, The Scotland Act 1998 (Modification of Schedule 5) Order 2013 (SI2013/242) contained no authority,  no provision or effect, to reverse the 2010 general election mandate of any MP including the 59 from across Scotland, the mandate that they had, to go and sit in the British Parliament remained intact before during and after the referendum. In other words the referendum was an only an opinion poll, a survey, even though it was sponsored by the government.

 

Further

The BBC knew of the actual constitutional and legal status but refused to broadcast it. The BBC continued to broadcast a content (including a countdown clock) that presented the image that the referendum did contain authority and would break up the United Kingdom upon the declaration of a “Yes” result.

This matter became a formal complaint and was taken to the BBC Board of Governor’s (BBC Trust Unit) who chose (Complaint’s and Appeals Board January and February 2015 Issued April 2015) not to answer it and instead fabricated another complaint that it itself had posed in it’s response, on the matter of MP’s from Scotland after the referendum.

 Please see the BBC website for details of the full Decision.

Old Bexley and Sidcup

 

James Brokenshire is the Conservative MP for the constituency of Old Bexley and Sidcup in greater London.

 He is the Northern Ireland Secretary.

 This week, he has warned against Northern Ireland moving towards

“direct rule” and that this must be avoided,

“we do not want to see a return to direct rule”.

 Mr Brokenshire will be fully aware that his Old Bexley and Sidcup constituency is under direct rule as is the whole of England.

 

…………………….

 

21st October 2017

723 Seats

More Representation not Less.

 The electoral register and the number of parliamentary constituencies are central to the operation of our parliamentary representative democracy.

The integrity both must be upheld.

The Conservative government wants to cut the number of parliamentary constituencies from 650 to 600.

 This means less representation of electors as constituencies become larger.

 

commonrepresentation.org.uk takes the view that the British people need

more parliamentary representation not less parliamentary representation.

 

We support an increase in the number parliamentary constituencies to 723

This will provide more representation for electors by reducing the ratio of elector to MP.

 In our Union Parliament, the number of constituencies is based simply on population and geographical criteria.

 (We also support the merging of the four Parliamentary Boundary Commission's into a singular Commision for the entire United Kingdom).

Bags of Money

 

The bag charge was introduced by the devolved parliament on the 20th of October 2014. All money from it remains with the private busines, none of it goes into the public purse.

 Paid largely by the poor, the bags are already paid for by the business and the charge

covers the price of the bag plus more to spare.

 Some business possibly still are factor into the price of items this means that the bags are being paid for twice plus the excess that goes to the business.

 If the devolved parliament wants to reduce the use of bags then it can pay for re-usable bags or ensure all money from the charge goes to public funds.

 This is not a frivolous marginal matter, it about the use of state power and the corporate apparatus to transfer your money to a private business under the cover of “saving the planet”.

 Millions of pounds are now being generated (5p per bag in the minimal prescribed charge) by private business for their private use.

 It is a racket and the legislation must be repealed.

Autonomy of the Nation

Vs

Autonomy of the Self

 

The retreat from national authority over the past fifty years has seen the Conservative party and the Labour party hand over power to the EU (and other supra-national institutions) and the devolved institutions, the retreat from national authority is now so advanced that the government has recently retreated from even holding the authority to decide whether an individual is male or female.

 The Conservative government will shortly introduce a “Gender Recognition” Bill which will allow individuals to have the authority to decide if they themselves are male or female, to be fair, this is the logical step from the previous legislation that provided for the legal recognition (including the alteration of passports and other official documentation) of the claim that a man can become a woman and a woman can become a man.

 The retreat of collective national authority permits the rise of the “authority” and the “autonomy” of the self.

 By retreating from our national authority contained through our parliamentary representative democracy the collective order of our society is disrupted, diminished and dissolved.

This is another “progressive” revolutionary tactic designed to dismantle the authority of the established and Christian order of our society alongside the “equality and diversity” cult.

 If our country cannot decide what is a man and what is a woman then it will find that in a very short time it cannot decide very much else and has generated distress and disorder across society especially among the young and the vulnerable who are increasingly lost in a society that is dissolving around them and are being exploited in both the moral and economic sense.

It is the job of a British government to protect the young and the vulnerable not to sacrifice them to the power lobby and propaganda lobby of the “progressive revolution”. It is no co-incidence that this lobby (ie Stonewall etc) target schools and colleges and universities with money and materials with full official backing of the Conservative and Labour and educational departments. Schools should be free from political propaganda.

 The phrase “my body is sovereign” is a phrase that has already been used in connection with the other “self” politics of the last third of the 20th century.

 It is “self” politics (an indulgent politics concerned only with the “me, me,me”) that emerged in the 1960’s rather than the politics of the collective national condition. It is the politics of the “pill” and abortion.

 The replacement of a nationally authorised medical designated definition of male or female with an online “self” definition is a further extension of this kind of politics.

 As the “collective” dimension of life in the UK diminishes and the “self” dimension increases, more of these retreats from national authority take place.

 The political enemies of the United Kingdom seek to activate as many challenges to our authority from inside and outside the UK as possible.

It is about the construction (by the Conservative and Labour parties) of a secular order in the United Kingdom in which the Christian order and culture has been marginalised and the national singular authority is increasingly replaced by new authorities in an ongoing clash for supremacy.

Great Britain must assert it’s singular authority, now or it will be too late.

A Devo Mandate Is A Devo Mandate

 While Theresa May continues to support another referendum on the Union, Nicola Sturgeon claims that the devo mandate that the SNP got in the devo parliament election in 2016 is a mandate for the devo parliament to hold a referendum on the Union as a consequence of a UK departure from the EU.

This is constitutionally and legally wrong.

She has got the wrong parliament. It is in the sovereign parliament election not the devolved parliament election that she must seek a mandate for separation.

She is claiming a devo mandate is a sovereign mandate and authorises all the contents of the SNP 2016 Manifesto, if this was the case then the SNP would have a mandate right now for lots of things including the removal of nuclear weapons and indeed a mandate for separation. It is fiction but a dangerous fiction and it is one that the Conservative and Labour parties (and the BBC) refuse to challenge because they support devolution and the power and patronage of the devolved Scottish Parliament.

 The only mandate (authority) in a devolved election is on matters that are devolved. It does not matter what the contents are in a manifesto for a devolvevd election because only devolved matters (ie not reserved matters: the Constitution, Foreign Affairs, Defence etc) are mandateable (ie subject to authorisation).

If the SNP or any other political party want authority to enact any legislation then the only constitutional and legal way to get it, is through a British ballot box in a parliamentary general election.

 Part of our "What Kind of Union Do You Want?" Series

Part 9

The Immediate Bond.

 The average working week is 37 hours.

  The married mother and father, the home, the extended family, known neighbours, the lollipopman, the school, the church, regular and familiar architecture, the local council house scheme, the post office the GP, the local park with a park warden etc these are all aspects of of place and time and the immediate bonds and layers of identity. 

They represent the key formational elements of who we are and where we fit into our locality and nation and it’s life.

  The immediate bonds of life are put in place by the mother.

 Since the 1970’s there has been a drive by the Conservative and Labour parties to force mothers and women in general out from the home and the local neighbourhood, out from the nurturing of children and the provision of welfare to the older generations.

  These activities and attendant voluntary institutions encouraged the building of strong local friendships and social bonds.

 Pushing women out to work  has led to vast areas, schemes and estates in villages, towns and city suburbs being left empty, day in day out, as the mothers go to work in largely low paid and boring jobs with little attachment, they cannot all be Kirsty Wark or Emily Matliss

 (who we should remember are already very rich and are paid for out of our public purse).

  Today it is mostly the middle class that can stay at home and nurture their children while working class mothers are increasingly forced to leave their children and are conscripted into the cult of “work” activity.

 Most mothers do not want to work full time, for most it is of little satisfaction compared to the satisfaction and contentment of making a family home, raising a family or providing for the older generations. Such activity is certainly more valuable than boring repetitive work on a computer screen or a production line.

  It is these bonds of place and time that generate the immediate substance of Nationhood.

In a sense the nation is the family unit writ large.

  The absence of women from local life means that their true talents and skills are lost and that a hole in the local quilt and fabric of social unity and cohesion is created and expands over time.

 A common identity and mutual support network fails to appear.

 Without this invisible voluntary blanket and bank of kindness and goodness (and highly practical skill, talent and resource) many things do not happen and do not exist, friendships do not happen and voluntary organisations do not operate and function as they could in a village, a town or a neighbourhood.

37 hours which could have been spent putting human rich resources into the local fabric are in many case spent shuffling pointless bits of paper or digital records around in an office or shuffling things around in a factory. 

 As women have been forced into indentured labour the social bonds have dispersed and the local social bonds that existed even twenty years ago have gone.

 The children and the old have been offloaded into the industrialised private or state sector, all open to all the forced doctrines of the secular equality and diversity religion.

 The warmth of the free bonds of local and national compassion and kindness

 (once guided by our established Christian religion) in our voluntary behaviour, habits and institutions are now being replaced by the profit motive.

 It is the monetisation of kindness and free action.

  Those born, even into the 1980s can remember this society full of immediate social and national bonds. Those born after, have only (if they are lucky) the handed down (a good thing) stories of what it was like.

This society did exist because we can still remember it.

  In todays atomised dissolving society, silo lifestyles are lived in shallow social waters easily turned off like a tap. Without a deep and durable meaning or serious human connection, all is selfish and pleasure motivated and monetised.

 In deep social waters, in physical closeness and over time, it is necessary to “rub along” with each other as the greater affection and the greater common cause and recognised interest are more important than the particular difference even on important matters in themselves. We restrain ourselves in the common interest to (within reason) “keep the peace” in order to avoid what would be conflict and division.

 This is how close relationships work and this is how a nation works.

 This is how we live with each other in the common physical world.

  In silo lifestyles especially those lived largely through digital media this lesson is surplus to requirement.

 By separating mothers from their children and forcing them out of their home for 37 hours a week the Conservative and Labour parties are knowingly loosening the bonds of family and national life.

  They do this because it creates a population that is rootless, compliant, and pliable (not least in the economic field), increasingly at social war against itself and increasingly dependent on the secular state for coerced action, regulation and provision where previously free association and voluntary coordination existed.

 This pushing of women into cheap employment is compounded by late if any entries into marriage, no fault divorce and of course abortion.

 It need not be like this. Another Britain is possible, even now.

We can rebuild.

 We did it before.

 

 “The contention may, or may not be true. It cannot be denied, however that the conditions created by the war have made for a disintegration of family life. The call up of millions of men, married and single, for service in the armed forces, the recruitment of women, the necessity for maximum output of munitions, the evacuation of children from their homes, have been cumulative causes which have made inevitable a separation of members of families on a scale enormous in it’s proportions. It may be that the separation is only a temporary necessity. It might prove to have an evil after effect in the years that are to come. At any rate it is certainly a disturbing, distressing unsettling influence.

The talk to the women of the Empire broadcast by Her Majesty the Queen on April 11th was therefore both noteworthy and timely. Whilst paying a noble tribute to their astonishing work, quiet heroism and whole-hearted sacrifice in helping to win the war, Her Majesty emphasized the importance of their task as homemakers, and, maintaining the influence of religion in the home was paramount, declared her conviction that it is upon the strength of the people’s spiritual life that the right building of the national life depends “ I look forward to a great rebuilding of family life as soon as the war ends,” Her Majesty stated. If our homes can be truly Christian, then the influence of that spirit will assuredly spread like leaven through all aspects of our common life, industrial, social and political.”

Her Majesty’s plain simple address needs no interpretation. It call’s for no comment other than that, in these tragic times, when our Christian heritage is threatened by adverse influences, we may well thank God that the “first lady of our land” has been moved to remind us that in religion alone can be found the source and mainspring of the courage and selflessness that the times demand and that the home is the foundation upon which the Christian religion is built.

London Devolution

 commonrepresentation.org.uk supports the abolition of the London Assembly and the post of London Mayor.

 We support the establishment of a London Council composed of representatives from the 12 inner London boroughs.

 The other 20 outer London boroughs would revert to a pre-1965 status as independent boroughs.

 The London Assembly was created by the Labour Party and supported by the Conservative Party in the year 2000.

With no primary legislative powers the Assembly remains just inside the definition of administrative devolution.

We still oppose it for three main reasons

1 It is an attempt to break up the UK by creating a "devolution" culture in the UK especially across England with "regional" counterweights to the legislative devolution in Scotland, Norther Ireland and Wales.

 2 It is an attempt to "politicise" London by providing it with a centralised political machine that will act as a platform for future divison from the national polity.

3 We support existing and previously established "near and close" local government, full of local identity and character not centrally imposed (flatpack) "metropolitan regions", "city regions" or "powerhouse" cliche's. These exist only to take power away from local councils and impose "regional brands".

 Yorkshire “Devolutiton”

 Yorkshire has 5.4 million residents.

 Yorkshire economy is worth £110 billion a year (twice the size of Wales and 13 Eurostate countries).

  August the 1st was Yorkshire Day and there was a renewed demand for “devolution” for Yorkshire.

 Conservative Party “Northern Powerhouse” minister Jake Berry said “I want to be very clear about one thing. There will not be a “full Yorkshire” deal. Yorkshire is a fantastic brand (our italics). But devolution is about giving control to cities.

 Mr Berry is of course talking about administrative devolution (local government arrangements) not the “devolution” the Conservative Party (and Labour) inflicted upon Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

 Not Funny

David Davis is a senior Conservative cabinet minister.

  He is allegedly in charge of getting the UK out of the EU.

  Rather than apply himself to this objective he decided to play “straightman” to Alex Salmond’s “funnyman” in Salmond’s Edinburgh Festival Show.

  They had a great time, laughing and joking.

 This highlights how seriously the establishment views the condition of our country.

They are rich and in power. They do not care.

 Meanwhile the nation is disintegrating in front of us and the British working class are in mass poverty attempting to feed themselves every week.

 GET OUT

   The Conservative Party (having stood on a manifesto in 2015 to stay in the EU) locked the UK into Article 50 in March 2017.

In doing so the UK is now at a negotiating disadvantage and bit by bit is dancing to the tune of the EU and it's agents.

The abolition of the UK's national frontier otherwise known as "free movement of people", the securing of the UK's land frontier with the Republic of Ireland and the UK's trade pattern are now all locked into the Article 50 procedure.

Article 50 was created by the EU, favours the EU and is under the jurisdiction of the EU.

We must get out.

We must repeal the 1972 European Communites Act immediately, rebuild and negotiate from

a position of strength.

 Reformation

  Without the Reformation there would be no United Kingdom.

 

 commonrepresentation.org.uk among many others celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.

 On the 31st of October 1517 Martin Luther hammered his 95 Theses onto the doors of of All Saints' Church in Wittenberg in Germany beginning the Reformation.

  The religious and political events that followed this action changed the course of human history.

  In the United Kingdom our identity, authority, territory and liberty have all been forged by this event.

 Without the Reformation the British Isles would have remained inside the orbit of power of the Roman Catholic Church and European kingdoms and principalities.

  The Glorious Revolution of 1688-1690 secured Great Britain and Ireland for the Protestant religion, Parliamentary democracy, the rule of law and our civil liberties.

Martin Luther

 I am bound by the Scriptures I have quoted and my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not retract anything, since it is neither safe nor right to go against conscience. I cannot do otherwise, here I stand, may God help me, Amen.

Luther at the Diet of Worms (1521)

 

 A number of events, services and seminars are taking place across the United Kingdom to mark Reformation 500.

 Thought You Were British?

 The Conservative Party’s new “settled” status category for EU citizens provides them (3-5 million presently here or shortly to be here) with near complete British nationality, it is not just a temporary technical measure it is and is meant to be, a decisive blow to the concept of British nationality and nationhood.

  It is about the dissolving of the means of authorised, self recognition and the identification of the British.

  The “settled” status category is the latest and most comprehensive measure designed to permit entry and rapid entry at that, to millions while ensuring that upon entry they are near indistinguishable from British nationals.

 The Conservative Party

 (Serving The Foreign Interest - Always).

 With no respect for our nation, it’s independence, it’s history or it’s dignity, the Conservative Party continue to represent the foreign interest in the United Kingdom.

  On the 5th August 2017 the Conservative Party Prime minster Theresa May and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson gave permission for the Primeminister of the Republic of Ireland to enter into the United Kingdom and campaign for a policy to be legislated for in the United Kingdom.

 During the EU membership referendum in 2016 the then Primeminister of the Republic of Ireland was permitted entry into the United Kingdom (by the then Conservative Party Primeminster and Foreign Secretary) to campaign for the United Kingdom to remain in the EU.

This is the Conservative Party - this is what they do.

As commonrepresentation.org.uk marks the 20th Anniversary of Legislative Devolution we are pleased to publish this article from Stephen Bailey, a history graduate from Surrey.

  Please contact us if you would like us to consider an article for publication.

 We have a dedicated and influential audience across the United Kingdom and overseas.

 

Devolution and Independence

 (We are being deceived, lied to and misled.)

  Britain is being continuously lied to about the whole process of constitutional change. At the beginning, in the late 1990's,the government of Blair assured us time and time again that devolution would be 'an event'(IE a one off happening) and not a process, or more or less continuous series of changes. The Scots, Welsh and the Province of Northern Ireland would get a parliament or assembly with devolved powers but this would be 'within the UK' and the House of Commons would retain responsibility for major issues (finance, foreign policy, the army ETC).

 This hasn't been adhered to. Over the years subsequent to devolution all the devolved bodies, but especially the Scottish parliament(and to a significant but lesser degree, the Northern Ireland Assembly) have slowly but surely accreted more and more new powers to themselves until we get to the current position where the Scottish parliament will have the highest degree of devolved autonomy that exists anywhere in the world(after the latest Scotland Bill comes into force).We shouldn't be surprised at this as Tam Dalyell predicted this happening back in the 1970's during House of Commons debates on an earlier, similarly mad, attempt at devolution. Tam was a proud Scotsman who often fiercely and intelligently fought for Scotland's interests in the Commons against all(especially English MP's) who took Scotland for granted or who treated her unfairly and/or patronisingly, much to the chagrin of those people guilty of such actions. He fought Scotland's corner in the Commons with great pugnacity and intelligence. However he realized that blinkered nationalism would lead Scotland into disaster. He also realized that Scotland's best interests lay in maintaining the Union. e dismissed devolution as '...a one-way highway to independence with no roundabouts or turnoffs'. In his later years he criticized devolution as unworkable as it is in the nature of devolved assemblies to continuously attract more power to themselves, ending in the demand for independence. And look how true that turned out to be.

During the debate in Parliament in the mid-late 70's on devolution Tam attacked devolution as unworkable as he thought that two parliaments in one country would simply lead to conflict over who controls what. Having two parliaments in a unitary country leads to the devolved region breaking away from the other part of the country as the two provinces can't agree on who controls what and as the devolved region accretes more and more powers to itself it gains the(often false) impression that it can go it alone-it seeks independence. Again, recent experience has proved him right.

 The Scottish independence question has been beset with lies and distortions from all sides.The SNP simply told(and continues to tell) one bold face lie after another in order to bamboozle the Scots into voting for independence. It's now obvious that they did this because they had no concrete policies for the post-referendum period if they won. Vague promises built on sand was all they offered(with a good dose of extremely unpleasant anti-English rhetoric). Luckily the sensible Scots saw through their mad plans. But even the 'Unionists' have misled us. Cameron's 'Conservatives' weren't really Unionists and indeed actually believed that it would be good for Scotland to leave the Union as this would mean that they would rule the rump UK in perpetuity as they could easily get a substantial majority in the Commons if Labour voting Scotland is removed from the electoral equation. His successor, Theresa May is no different, and, whilst saying publicly that she doesn't think that a second Scottish independence referendum is needed has made no firm commitment to the Union and gives the impression that she would not defend it if Sturgeon started banging the independence drum again. She is cut from the same patrician cloth as Cameron and would simply cave in to the SNP's demands for another referendum. What's more, even though she didn't have to, she would respect the result. She can't be trusted to maintain the Union. Corbyn's neo-Trotskyite Labour Party is indifferent towards the Union and this is highlighted by his assertion that '...I am not a Unionist'.

The so-called 'Conservative and Unionist Party' are the worst of them all. Before the 2014 Scottish independence referendum Cameron promised that a 'no' vote would settle the question 'for a generation'(25-30 years?).He asserted repeatedly that this was a 'one off deal' and that this didn't set a precedent that would enable future referenda to be held .After the nearly 2-1 'no' vote he re-asserted this. He called the vote 'decisive'. Then, In order to frighten people into voting for staying in the EU he brought up the bogeyman of a second Scottish independence referendum if we left. Sheer scare mongering and hypocrisy. He knows he has the legal power (from both the original devolution Acts and the Smith Commission Report recommendations) to rule out a second Scottish referendum. It is perfectly clear from both the original devolution Bill and the later Smith Commission that the House of Commons retains full jurisdiction over constitutional matters, including the calling of referenda, not Holyrood. All this threatening of a second Scots referendum vividly displays the Conservatives real lack of honesty about the constitutional change issue-they have no real intention of sticking to Cameron's original 'one off deal' pledge and will simply cave in to future demands for referenda from the SNP. Their misplaced patrician gentlemanliness means that even though they have the legal right to they won't deny the Scots future referenda if they ask. They can't be trusted on this issue.

 We have been continuously lied to and misled from day one about constitutional change by everybody involved in the process and their deceit will lead the UK to ruin, unless we stop them.

Powershift

 At commonrepresentation.org.uk we have over the years referred to the shifting of the political plates in the United Kingdom.

  We regard the political manifestations and trends of the past five years are evidence of this.

 Some unionists are now content after the general election result and are happy to be cheerleaders for the Conservative, Labour and Liberal parties ( the very same parties that took us to the precipice of complete dis-integration and political chaos not even three years ago). These parties represent the foreign interest in the United Kingdom. They all support mass immigration, devolution, membership of the Eurostate, secularism, de-industrialisation, mass debt etc.

 100 years after the emergence of the Labour Party to become a principal party of the nation (replacing the Liberal Party) it is now vital that a new party emerges as a principal party.

  This time the political powershift is not about a shift in working class and labour representation inside the nation it is about the very survival of the British nation state itself.

20th Anniversary of Legislative Devolution Series

 Part 2

 The Division Bell

 

Conservative Manifesto 1997

  “… the development of new assemblies in Scotland and Wales would create strains which could well pull apart the Union. That would create a new layer of government which would be hungry for power. It would risk rivalry and conflict between these parliaments or assemblies and the parliament at Westminster. And it would raise serious questions about whether the representation of Scottish and Welsh MPs at Westminster - and their role in matters affecting English affairs - could remain unchanged…”

 Seldom has a manifesto so accurately predicted the outcome of a particular policy initiative and warned against it.

  Unfortunately, for the entire United Kingdom, the Conservative Party ditched it's opposition to legislative devolution only 4 months and 10 days after the general election.

The division of the United Kingdom had begun.

As the result of the referendum on devolution in Scotland was broadcast, the Conservative Party surrendered and declared it’s support for legislative devolution. Rather than hold to it’s established position and prepare for the long haul of political work and persuasion, the Conservative Party fell to it’s knee’s to worship at the alter of legislative devolution and the referendum device.

 With serious old guard “high Tories”, who did understand the implications of legislative devolution for the Union now few in number, hardly any Conservative’s even thought about the Union.

 Any mention of the Union in most Conservative meetings was met with a laugh and a swift “let us move on” to the next subject.

 The lack of depth of conviction and thought in the Conservative Party on the Union meant it was easy for the “New” Labour Party to take a devolutionist approach to the matter and be led by the federalist, separatist and republican forces inside and outside of it. New Labour like the Conservative Party was now all about money.

 The authority to begin the experiment in legislative devolution on the mainland of the United Kingdom was exercised in the general election on the 1st of May 1997. The Labour Party under Blair had included a commitment to it in their manifesto, provided referendums in Scotland and Wales took place to ensure “popular endorsement”.

  The referendum device itself was to be part of a new constitutional doctrine which would raise the referendum device to a new “gold standard” in democracy (20 years later this would lead to a conflict between Parliamentary general election (2015) and a referendum result (2016), on the matter of European Union membership, a conflict only resolved by another general election in 2017). Labour’s post war Leader and Prime minister Clement Attlee, had warned about such a conflict and described the referendum mechanism as “alien to all our (parliamentary) traditions” but in 1997, New Labour was intent that the referendum device would assist it preventing the House of Commons acting as a brake (it’s constitutional job) on the executive. The referendum device would be increasingly be presented as a counter authority to parliamentary authority and the matter of the Union in 1997 was the ideal subject for New Labour to begin its reintroduction of the referendum mechanism, which had not been used in the United Kingdom for 18 years since the last devolution experiment in 1979.

Labour Manifesto 1997

  As soon as possible after the election, we will enact legislation to allow the people of Scotland and Wales to vote in separate referendums on our proposals, which will be set out in white papers. These referendums will take place not later than the autumn of 1997. A simple majority of those voting in each referendum will be the majority required. Popular endorsement will strengthen the legitimacy of our proposals and speed their passage through Parliament.”

“For Scotland we propose the creation of a parliament with law-making powers, firmly based on the agreement reached in the Scottish Constitutional Convention, including defined and limited financial powers to vary revenue and elected by an additional member system. In the Scottish referendum we will seek separate endorsement of the proposal to create a parliament, and of the proposal to give it defined and limited financial powers to vary revenue. The Scottish parliament will extend democratic control over the responsibilities currently exercised administratively by the Scottish Office.”

 Labour’s victory opened the door to national division and dissolution. From May 1st 1997, bit by bit, power, patronage, status and money would flow to the devolved institutions, under the sponsorship of the Labour and Conservative parties not the SNP, (later installments both the Scotland Act 2012 and Scotland Act 2016 would take further substantial powers from the British Parliament and place them into the devolved parliament which now would have a “government” and not an “executive”, the nomenclature had changed to meet the rising status of the institution. The push for “parliamentary parity” was now on (even though the British Parliament is the sovereign parliament and the Scottish Parliament is the devolved one). The idea of the United Kingdom as a “family of nations”, an informal federal entity increasingly took hold, especially in the Conservative Party, for it avoided the party having to confirm that the United Kingdom actually still is a constitutional and legal integral and unitary parliamentary nation.

By 1997 however the matter of the Union had been neglected to such an extent that many did not even care about the Union (this was especially the case with politicians - elected in 1997 Theresa May’s “precious, precious Union” does not even rate a mention in her political life until she is Prime minister in 2016) while at the same time the Union was so familiar and taken for granted in general that to suggest or even question that it should be brought to an end and dissolved was not taken seriously until 15 years later on the 8th January 2012 when Conservative Prime minister David Cameron launched a referendum in which it was proposed that the United Kingdom be dissolved on the night of the 18th of September 2014.

20th Anniversary

of Legislative Devolution

 Commonrepresentation.org.uk will be marking the 20th anniversary of the introduction of legislative devolution into mainland UK through a series of special articles (Part 1 can be found below) and activities (further information to follow). 

We will highlight the division and waste that legislative devolution has brought into British politics and why we must have nothing less than repeal.

20th Anniversary of Legislative Devolution Series

 Part 1 

A Warning Ignored.

 

 PREFACE

 

In 1997 there was no legislative devolution on the mainland of the United Kingdom. All government and administration took place through national government channels and for some delegated matters local council channels. This system is called administrative devolution.

This system remains in place in England.

  Administrative devolution provided accountable and effective local government and administration of the public realm. 

With administrative devolution there was: no devolved legislative powers, no third tier of government, no additional layer of devolved politicians (today 279 of them exist on three sites with a vast apparatus of political staff and substantial political budgets paid for by the British taxpayer), no territorial institution’s to aggregate powers to themselves and increasingly claim a status as a proto or embryonic state and of course no political personality to challenge the British Parliament for authority.

Administrative devolution worked well, very well.

It built the entire physical infrastructure of the United Kingdom that we know today.

  In the 1970s and 1980s, the anti-devolutionists in both the Conservative and Labour parties warned that the introduction of legislative devolution into the United Kingdom, an integral and unitary parliamentary nation would lead to it’s dis-integration.

  20 years after it’s introduction, we can now see the evidence in front of us that the anti-devolutionist’s were right.

 Legislative devolution has introduced a territorial, electoral and institutional conflict into the United Kingdom and in the space of just 17 years the United Kingdom was taken from being a "strong and stable" nation to the edge of complete destruction by the political forces unleashed by legislative devolution.

The referendum on the Union in 2014, initiated by the Conservative party, not the SNP, is only the first direct challenge between the British Parliament and the devolved institutions.

  Unless and until legislative devolution is repealed the next referendum on the Union is not that far away.

***

 On the 1st of May 1997 the Labour Party was elected to government on a manifesto which included the introduction of legislative devolution in mainland United Kingdom.

  On the 11th of September 1997 the Labour government held referendums (state sponsored opinion polls) on devolution in Scotland and Wales.

  While neither referendum result contained a majority of the electorate, (devolution was not a burning issue for most electors in Scotland or Wales or in any part of the UK, who were more concerned about jobs, poverty and housing rather than some new fangled governmental arrangements for more politicians and another tier of government) but encouraged and comforted by the entire political establishment cheerleading for devolution, out of those that did vote, a majority supported the introduction of legislative devolution.

 It may have been expected that faced with such a radical and dangerous constitutional alteration to the unitary fabric of the Nation, the Conservative Party would provide opposition and rally forces against it, however the opposite was the case.

  As the result of the refendum was announced and broadcast, the Conservative Party (which had been wiped out in Scotland in the general election in May ) which had previously opposed legislative devolution (although increasingly it did not know why it did) immediately surrendered centuries of unionism and reversed it’s policy and embraced devolution with the zeal of the new convert.

(Since the 11th of September 1997 no principal party in the United Kingdom now supports the actual existing constititutional and legal form of the United Kingdom as an integral and unitary parliamentary nation).

  The referendum result provided a convenient political cover for the Conservative Party to retreat from having to go through the motions of even having to think seriously about the Union nevermind having to defend it. 

For decades the Conservative Party had regarded the Union as a distraction, a nuisance, a troublesome relic from the past just like the other heavy responsibilities of nationhood that it had no interest in. 

It could now finally cast off unionism and concentrate on it’s prime concern and interest: money.

 Devolution would also provide the Scottish Conservative Party with elected representation and public money to run it's organisation. Devolution’s gerrymandered proportional representation system of 129 MSP’s (72 constituencies and 57 “list” MSP’s) and generous financial support for political parties had arrived at just the right time for the Scottish Conservative Party.

 No wonder there were so many happy Scottish Conservatives at the Conservative Conference in Blackpool in 1997.

The Hollow Union

 A few months ago we ran a series on

“What kind of Union do you want?”

 At commonrepresentation.org.uk we reject the secular Union favoured by others.

 We believe in maintaining the Christian, Protestant religion as the national and established religion.

 Our country was built on it.

 (We further believe that the Church of England and the Church of Scotland should complete their union that begun in the 17th century but that is for another day.)

 The emergence of the idea of a secular Union is part of the "progressive revolution agenda.

The record of the secular Union from 1960 is one of national failure, decline and disintegration.

 It was crowned on the 1st May 1997 (year zero) by the election of Tony Blair (how did he get elected when today it is very difficult to meet a single person who admits that they voted for him? It is like the recent Radio Scotland programme that appealed for callers who would admit that they had voted Conservative in the general election, not a single one phoned in to admit it.)

 Blair’s election was the victory of the "progressive" revolution of the 1960’s in 1997, 30 years after its

emergence.

 Armed with secularism, de-industrialisation and funny money debt accounts (and assisted by Mrs Thatcher – the proto Blair) the British were to be encouraged into throwing away their Christian Protestant religion and it’s precepts including self-control and material prudence.

 30 years later having indulged in the secular and debtfest based lifestyle there is little left of the

“strong and stable” nation state that existed in say 1959.

 Morally (upon which everything else must be based), socially, economically, politically and constitutionally nearly everything now has been thrown away.

 (see above Vassal Territory Blog Page: Entry 20 The Party’s Over, Entry 21 Throwing It All Away and Entry 59 Tidy Up).

 The Union is now hollow.

 We are now witnessing how hollow it is, as we even think about emerging blinking into the sunlight from our captivity in the Eurostate after 44 years.

 Where have all the British people gone? Where are our churches? Where are our men? Where are our soldiers? Where are our ships? Are we still an island? Where are the mothers pushing prams and children playing and making friends in the streets? Where are our coal pits, Where are or industries and power stations? Where are our police? Where are our old folk? Where are our spacious and ordered streets?

They have gone.

 Conservative and Labour Coalition? It’s Already Here.

 The Leader of the Conservative Party has appealed to the Labour Party to join together to get legislation through Parliament.

 While the Conservative Party appeals to the Labour Party for agreement, ideas  and joint action it overlooks the 50 year old agreement already in place across all the principle matters in the United Kingdom.

 This includes the covert joint action to get the legislation for the referendum on the Union (the Scotland Act (Modification Order 2013) through both Houses with no green paper, no white paper, no bill, no constitutional debate on the floor of the HOC in committee (the normal method for important constitutional legislation), no dissent, no division, no vote.

The Order was passed unanimously in a matter of hours in the HOC and then the same happened the next day in the HOL.

The only opposition to this, the most important piece of legislation ever to appear before the British Parliament was from commonrepresentation.org.uk which challenged it through the Constitutional Committee of the HOL and other parliamentary and government channels.

The challenge remains recorded for posterity through Parliaments and the Constitutional Committee’s records.

 Across all the the moral, social, economic, political and constitutional matters facing our country the Conservative and Labour parties and their corporate and media machines are deeply and covertly united in pushing through the “progressive” revolution policies of the 1960’s.

 This continues to be the case under Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.

It does not matter who you vote for you will get the same principle

policies.

 Secularisation

Mass Immigration

Membership of the Eurostate (we are still in)

De-industrialisation

Mass Abortion

Mass poverty

Mass debt

Mass Lonliness

Etc…..

 At commonrepresentation.org.uk we welcome the explicit call for open joint action, we oppose the fake division between these parties, there is far more that unites them than divides them.

 They are one party joined by an unwritten but understood manifesto dedicated to the “progressive” revolution and the consequent ruin and disintegration of the United Kingdom.

 It’s not political unity we need it’s political division.

 A division between one political constellation (party) representing the failed policies of the past 50 years and a new constellation (party) representing the policies that can restore and rebuild our country.

Unless and until we have this political division the electorate cannot make their choice and the United Kingdom will continue to disintegrate in front of us.

Pie In The Sky? 

One month after the general election and there are still a number in the unionist commentariat that continue to attack the SNP rather than the Conservative Party.

 The SNP are innocent.

  There are three simple reasons why.

 1 We have a parliamentary representative democratic constitution, it is impossible for a referendum to legally break up the United Kingdom.

 2 The SNP do not have the authority in the devolved parliament to initiate a referendum.

3 The SNP can never have the numbers in the HOC to initiate a referendum on their own.

 It is the Conservative Party along with their fellow devo-junkie’s in the Labour and Liberal parties that initiated a referendum on the Union not the SNP.

 Quite apart from legislative devolution (which generates separation rather than administrative devolution, which poses no threat to the Union) the Conservative Party is also engaged in dissolving the United Kingdom in many other ways.

 As the saying goes “there are many ways to skin a cat”

  Morality

 The Conservative Party (and Labour and Liberals re: Mr Farron)

 is engaged in replacing our established Christian religion

 (the foundation of our society)

 with the godless equality and diversity religion and enforcing it in the public sector and in the private sector.

Mass Immigration

 The Conservative Party, informed the Eurostate potentates (before they told the British Parliament) that a newly invented “settlement status” would be created to provide a virtual British nationality to the (official numbers) 3 million EU citizens that are here never mind those who are not officially here or who can get here pronto. A number of 5 million is nearer the mark.

  Economic Disintegration

 The price of the Chinese Hinkley power station approved by Theresa May only last year is already on the rise and you are paying.

  

These are just three examples of how the Conservative Party etc are dissolving the Nation

in non-constitional ways.

  In our British Parliamentary democracy the SNP are entitled to campaign for separation and to become a statelet in the Eurostate.

 The threat to the United Kingdom’s existence comes from the Conservative Party not the SNP.

 Cheerleading for the Conservative Party explicitly or subliminally

 is to give them strength and comfort, while they continue to dissolve the Nation.

  

There is only one option for the United Kingdom or it is completely finished, over, done.

  A new party dedicated to the British interest must form and emerge and secure power. 

 For some unionists this is pie in the sky.

  For them, if we are nice to the Conservative Party then it might be nice to Britain and might treat us a little bit better.

  For them a new party is not practical, it would be a waste of time and effort.

It would cause political division and would take too long.

 

At commonrepresentation.org.uk we disagree.

 In France today a new party has come to power.

  It won the Presidency of France.

 It has just won an absolute majority of seats in the National Assembly.

 The party was founded on the 6th April 2016

 Powder Keg

 One week on from the general election and nothing has changed.

 The Conservative and Labour parties remain the principal parties of power.

  The United Kingdom remains on course for complete disintegration.

  In the past five years the country has moved from active planned decay to a fast moving loose dissolution in the moral, social, economic, political, constitutional, and governmental dimensions.

 From our perspective at commonrepresentation.org.uk, the Conservative and Labour parties, the parties that are the political vehicles for the dissolution of Britain and who introduced legislative devolution and the referendums on the Union, have regrettably gained strength from tactical voting.

  The “threat” of the SNP introducing another referendum was and is fiction and an effective piece of Conservative Central Office theatre.

  A brief check of the Scotland Act 1998 will clear up that matter.

  The SNP can never win a majority  in the HOC

 (it can only ever win 59/650 seats)

 and it can never initiate a referendum on the Union

(the legal and constitutional authority to do so remains only in the HOC)

 It continues to be the case that only an amalgamation of the Conservative and Labour parties can get a referendum through the HOC and indeed that is what they did with the Scotland Act (Modification) Order 2013.

 The tactical voting project has strengthened the parties responsible for the referendum.

 The referendum device will reappear shortly and it will be the Conservative and Labour parties that will champion it.

 It remains a valuable weapon in the political armoury of the “progressive” movment.

 Only “tactical voting” for a new national unionist party armed with a broad manifesto of restoration and renewal will provide unionists with what they want.

  Meanwhile those who did vote Conservative or Labour are now complicit, having endorsed those parties manifesto’s and policies.

 The snowball of political chaos that is now British politics is gathering pace.

  Labour has called for people to “get out on the street’s” and protest against the Conservative government on July 1st while the Conservative Party attempts to news manage it’s way through until tomorrow, throw in all the national divison caused by the policies of the past fifty years and civil strife and public disorder (over and above the conveniently forgotten 2011 riots) is not too far away.

 At commonrepresentation.org.uk we have warned for years of the United Kingdom’s exposure on a number of fronts, not least regarding power supply (including digital money), public infrastructure (including transport and water supply) and the serious absence of sufficient (in some cases non existent) police, army, civil defence, territorial army, police reservist, numbers, organisation (local and national), equipment, plans and facilities and other resources that are essential for the United Kingdom to protect and defend the British people in a time of local, regional or national emergency.

The country is a powder keg waiting for a match.

Staying In

 While commonrepresentation.org.uk supports getting out the EU we oppose the referendum mechanism because it is an "alien" device.

We regard the referendum as a opinion poll containing no authority.

We hold the view that the only way the UK will leave the EU is by a party commiting to do so in it’s general election manifesto and defeating another party that wants to stay in.

This is how our parliamentary democracy works and how the British people get their elected political representation.

A referendum is a cold paper snapshot of opinion.

In a referendum no one is elected so no representation can take place.

The Conservative and Labour pro EU establishment today remain in charge.

They are engaged in keeping us in.

 Homo Superior

 At commonrepresentation.org.uk we can see the politics of the 1960’s in the current political outfall of the general election.

 Anything associated with the Christian religion and national authority is now targeted as a threat to the “progressive revolution” of the 1960’s.

Which of course it is.

Even the word morality is now regarded by many as a hate word, it is now widely found with inverted commas around it to warn those of a liberal and progressive inclination that the writer is with them, that the writer too regards the word as archaic, out of time, judgemental and full of unspoken hate. Morality is a word – like many others – that has no place in this new socially advanced and higher utopia, this new age.

The advocates of the “progressive” revolution have always thought of themselves as the vanguard of a new age and a new way of living, in the words of the song, “the dawning of the age of Aquarius”.

They thought, and still do, that they were a new level of human development, the homo-superior, superior to that which existed – the Saps (homo-saps).

The self appointed next stage of human evolution.

You can still watch them every night presenting Newsnight or the Channel 4 News.

  From the 1960s, rather than the emergence of a homo superior what was actually taking place was simply the cultural and artistic manifestation of twenty years of post war, peace, relative prosperity, full employment, the end of conscription and national service and commercial progress.

 The Conservative and Labour parties, the establishment in general and the established church in particular, did not possess the will by the early 1960’s to repel and contain this largely commercial and artistic social mood which flowed into politics and provided a alternative cultural background to a political agenda hostile to the established constitutional order and dedicated to the dissolution of the United Kingdom’s Christian foundations, it’s social, and economic infrastructure, it’s authority and it’s integrity.

 The 1960s “progressive” generation had it very good but only had contempt for their country. An NHS available from birth, council housing, good school, full employment, if they were talented enough they could go to university, many got longterm reasonably paid employment (many in the nationalised industries and expanding educational sector), afford to get married and have a family, go holidays and have a good standard of living.

 They have ruined it for most of those who came after them.

 For some – the children and grandchildren of the original homo superiors, they are still rich enough to indulge in their homo superior lifestyle away from or insulated from the British working class and the decay of the inner cities and outlying towns.

 In the June 2017 general election patterns, we can look at the past fifty years and observe the moral, social, economic and political wasteland that has been created by politicians indulging the homo-superior’s in their selfish policies and watch as the last elements that made Great Britain are thrown into the fire.

Unionists Not Conservatives

Part 2

 They Have Made Their Bed, They must Lie In It.

 The 12 new Scottish Conservative MP’s are now in the fealty of the party.

 They have made their own individual choice and rather than serve the British interest they have now sworn their allegiance to their feudal lord, the Conservative Party and all of it’s works.

 Getting Out

The Article 50 process and timeframe should never have been accepted.

It places power in the hands of the EU.

The 1972 European Communites Act must be repealed immediately.

A commitment can then be given to “mirror” EU legislation for a period decided by the British government.

This will give the British government the power and the initiative to enter and negotiate in trade talks.

 DUP

 The DUP support legislative devolution.

 The only price the DUP should place on giving support to the Conservative Party is that Northern Ireland is governed in the same form as England.

 By not doing so they place the Union in further danger.

 

Unionists Not Conservatives

Part 1

The Scottish Conservative Party is crawing that it has won 12 seats.

commonrepresentation.org.uk reminds the Scottish Conservative Party that the new votes it recieved were Unionist votes not Conservative votes.

What Can You Do?

 The moral, social, economic, political, constitutional and now the governmental dis-integration that we are witnessing will continue and it will get worse.

 Apart from the political “stuff” general day to day activities are becoming more difficult even getting to work for millions is now a serious logistical exercise.

 There is no escape, unless you have lots of money and can hide behind big walls or go out in a big car or you can go on very long holidays (we recommend Spain) or emigrate.

 If escape for you is not a credible option then what can you practically do?

 We recommend you join or donate to a new political party that offers  a manifesto that addresses the principal matters facing our country today.

 The only way to stop this and reverse the damage of the past 50 years is by the formation of a new national political party with a broad manifesto dedicated national restoration and renewal.

 We recommend the small Glasgow based British Unionist Party (BUP).

 It is registered with the Electoral Commission and is open to all across the United Kingdom who support, in general, it’s manifesto.

Banana Republic UK

 The United Kingdom is becoming a banana republic.

As the Nation disintegrates our common and solid and regular constitutional and political institutions and patterns of government are now dissolving and becoming increasingly ineffectual.

We can see this in the increased number and forms of referendums and elections taking place resolving nothing.

Centuries of British political and parliamentary evolution are now in reverse while national authority is retreat.

Becoming The New Middle East

 One of the consequences of mass immigration is that Britain is now becoming the new Middle East, the new Africa and the new Asia.

We have not just imported their tastes in food we have imported their religions and politics.

 From the Preface of the King James Bible

 “…or if, on the other side, we shall be maligned by self-concieted brethren, who run their own ways, and give liking unto nothing but what is framed by themselves, and hammered on their anvil, we may rest secure, supported within by the truth and innocency of a good conscience, having  walked the ways of simplicity and integrity, as before the Lord, and sustained without by the powerful protection of your Majesty’s grace and favour, which will ever give countenance to honest and Christian endevours against bitter censures and uncharitable imputations…”

No Effect

 When commonrepresentation.org.uk was established in April 2011, Unionism had been for decades neglected and it’s philosophical, constitutional, historical, political and cultural elements marginalised, treated with contempt and then cast aside by the Conservative and Labour political establishment.

Then they set about to replace our Union Constitution with new and foreign arrangements.

commonrepresentation.org.uk remains the only dedicated campaign putting the case for our integral and unitary Nation and against those who supported legislative devolution, arguing the case for the British Constitution against those who sought to destroy and replace it and arguing the case for our parliamentary representative democracy against those that sought to impose the very fashionable referendum device.

 That the Union and the constitution would come to be at the centre of political debate nevermind actually move votes was laughable, and they did laugh.

Conservative, Labour, Liberals and the SNP and Plaid Cymru supporters laughed at our content, they even laughed at our simple website.

 They are not laughing any more.

 commonrepresentation.org.uk has been joined by many other campaign groups, facebook groups, networks, political parties and other organisations all working to keep the United Kingdom together.

This broad “pro UK” movement has been successful in activating and mobilising unionists to vote for the Union.

 Today the Union and the constitution is at the centre of our political life.

 However while unionists have been mobilised to vote for the Union without a UK wide Unionist political party to represent them it is all to no effect.

The very same pro-referendum, pro-legislative devolution, pro-Eurostate, pro-mass immigration political parties that initiated the 2014 referendum are now back in power.

 

 

10th June 2017

Voted for the Union ?

 The SNP accept the authority of the British Parliament by sitting in it (they can/have never initiated a referendum on the Union). They lost 22 seats in the June general election.

 The Conservative Party introduced two referendums on the Union to reject the authority of the British Parliament. They gained 12 seats in the June general election.

Harvest

Mark 4:26-29King James Version (KJV)

26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;

27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.

28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.

29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.

 

 

3rd June 2017

General Election:

Abstain for Britain

(or spoil your ballot paper)

 

Save Britain not the Conservative Party.

 

A general election is only as good as the parties on offer.

 This has been a fake election.

 Nothing will change.

Nothing is meant to change.

 The general election has taken place on a very narrow, a very shallow and a very choreographed range of subjects,

 The present course of the United Kingdom towards dissolution has not been at  issue these past seven weeks.

 That is the point of this general election.

The Conservative, Labour and Liberal parties offer no escape from the ruin of our country that they themselves have orchestrated for fifty years, a vote for any of them means no change, only more of the same until the complete dis-integration.

 There is no alternative on offer at this election

(the next general election could well be along a lot earlier than expected)

that must be for another election, the choice on Thursday 8th of June 2017 is about authorising the further ruin of our country or withholding our electoral authority until we do see a new political formation that does offer us an alternative road and voting for it.

 Only now, a year after the British coup d’état of 24th June - July 13th 2016 that put Theresa May and a new manifesto into power without a general election, the Conservative government is now ready to test the electorate having prepared the mood lighting and backing soundtrack.

The June 2017 general election is intended to keep in place the same script, cast and cheap dialogue that has brought this country to it’s knees over the past 50 years. 

It is no coincidence that most of the Conservative, Labour and Liberal candidates who only two year ago stood on manifesto’s to stay in the EU (including Theresa May, Boris Johnson and Michael Gove) will now stand on manifesto’s to get out.

 The British people deserve better politicians than these charlatans.

Where are the deep reflective, philosophical and intellectual reasons for their individual change of thought and opinion on this matter, the high matter our national political independence?

 The reasons do not exist.

  They have spent their entire political life supporting the EU because they believe in it, for them to do otherwise would have meant no political career and/or relative poverty.

These politicians have built their career and/or private fortunes on supporting the EU and the “progressive” revolution in general.

 Theresa May is typical of this type of politician.

She has spent twenty years silent, not least on the Union and the use of the referendum device – she (not Nicola Sturgeon or Alex Salmond) sat at the Cabinet table and voted to initiate the referendum and was prepared to let the United Kingdom fall  into the abyss.

Then she decided to initiate another on the 16th of March this year because she just like Cameron on the 8th January 2012 knew a general election was not too far away and for them, the interest of the Conservative Party was more important the interest of the British people.

The Conservative Party projected it would get more votes in England in the 2015 general election by having a referendum on the Union. It’s plan worked and it did get more votes and it will get more votes by threatening another one at the 2017 general election.

 Theresa May has become very rich and attained high office by “going with the - progressive revolutionary - flow” all her political life.

 Never in her twenty years as an MP did she take a stand for anything.

 Nowhere in twenty years did she even mark her objection or offer support or work with those Conservative Unionists fighting the attacks on her “precious, precious” Union.

 Elected in 1997, where was she on Blair’s devolution referendums and Acts, the Belfast Agreement, the further devolution Acts and further referendums…..she was in the lobby supporting them and in the House speaking for them because her future career depended on her silence.

She was right in that respect.

 She became Primeminister in 2015 but not in a general election, only as the result of a Conservative Party coup.

 These politicians have not changed their minds, their thoughts or opinions, they have only changed their words, and they do this in order to keep their jobs, money, decreasing social status, patronage and perks (usually free travel and foreign holidays).

 They are an abomination.

They deserve to be cast out of this country not voted into it’s government.

The general election is only a question of which management team will get the contract for “asset stripping” and “closing down” the United Kingdom.

 There is no material difference between Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May.

They agree on all the principle matters (secularism, mass immigration, membership of the EU, abortion, legislative devolution, family breakdown, a "funtime" marketplace, etc).

 They just disagree on the particular route to take.

 The election of a Conservative Party government will continue to dissolve and accelerate to the final dissolution of the United Kingdom.

 The Nation will be further measured up, secularised, monetised and sold off

(see Theresa May and ARM Holdings and Hinkley Power Station).

 Our Christian foundations and established church will be further marginalised.

The godless morality (including over 8 million abortions since 1967) and the secular state imposed and enforced religion of “equality and diversity” will be further promoted and enforced.

 Society will further dissolve and the family and then the individual will be isolated and subject to the cold power of the market and a cold state, while the private family space will be further encroached upon by state power and secular indoctrination through schools and other public and private corporate means.

 What is left of the British national economy will be sold and replaced by a debt and servie based marketplace.

The young and the old will be increasingly identified by the Conservative Party’s donors as debt generators.

 Our parliamentary system will be further degraded and our Union and it’s land, sea and air frontier compromised.

 (At commonrepresentation.org.uk we remember, that the Union was not that “precious, precious” when Theresa May as Home Secretary permitted the Irish Republic’s Primeminister Kenny to enter, tour and campaign across the United Kingdom in order to encourage citizens of the Irish Republic , who are permitted to vote in British elections and referendums, to vote to stay in during the EU referendum).

Our constitution will be further sidelined, dismantled and then replaced.

 Do not be part of this.

The SNP can never initiate a referendum in the British Parliament.

(the only place where it can be initiated and authorised)

 The SNP can never form a majority in the House of Commons.

 The SNP can never form a British government.

 Only the Conservative, Labour or Liberal parties or an amalgamation of them can initiate and legislate for a referendum on the Union and they did in 2013.

 On the 15th of March this year no second referendum existed.

 On the 16th of March a second referendum did exist.

 On that day Theresa May opened the door and initiated the second referendum on the Union but gave no date preferring to let another referendum hang in the air causing fear and uncertainty. Such a ploy just like the first referendum served the Conservative party interest but not the national interest.

It would assist the Conservative Party in the (at that point unknown) forthcoming general election.

 One month later on the 18th of April 2017 Theresa May called for a general election.

 The Conservative Party is not daft, it knows what it is doing.

 The Conservative Party has betrayed you time and time and time again.

It will do it again.

If you let it.

 During this empty and overlong seven week and two day general election, the foreign financed Conservative Party (and it’s media machine) have sought to draw unionists in to vote for it, not because it believes in the Union, but because it does not believe in the Union and it needs unionist votes to get into power and be complicit in it’s plans to fragment the United Kingdom once it is in power.

 Do not be complicit.

 Do not give the Conservative Party the one thing that it does want from you.

 Do not give it your vote.

Abstain for the Union.

Bible Reading 

Mark 10:13-16 King James Version (KJV)

13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.

 No Change Manifesto’s

  Both Conservative and Labour manifesto’s continue the United Kingdom’s present course towards dissolution.

  Commonrepresentation.org.uk is no fan of Jeremy Corbyn, however who would have thought it, he has had a better manifesto launch than Theresa May in her hermetically sealed bubble.

  Oh dear, oh well never mind.

  Now after twenty years, we finally get to see the political force of nature that is and has been the deep driving political conviction of Theresa May and it is………….. a damp squib... just  an amorphous fog of personal over-ambition and a presentational rehash of the past twenty years of Conservative Party policy, sprinkled with some nostalgia dust (describing itself on the front cover as the “Conservative and Unionist Party” while it has not been a unionist party since September 1997) and while the essential scenery is Halifax and an old mill building (now a wedding venue, how ironic),  the (very expensive) Cabinet extras have to be bussed in on (very expensive) private transport (no public transport for the likes of them) through the unfamiliar setting of West Yorkshire.

 Not worth the three weeks wait, or indeed the entire political lifetime of Theresa May.

While the Labour Manifesto is without national purpose and is timid, the Conservative manifesto is just a set of accounts with slight cost accounting amendments compared to the previous set submitted by Cameron.

  Business as usual.

 Neither manifesto address’s the fundamental matters facing the United Kingdom today: Mass immigration and it’s deep and profound effects that are only begining, Legislative devolution and it’s built in conflict mechanism, The abandonment of the established church and the consequent rise of secularism, selfishness and excessive consumption, The marginalisation of marriage, Mass abortion,De-industrialisation and it’s severe and lasting social effects on men, women and children and not least the attack on our parliamentary constitution etc.

  Both parties prefer to argue over lesser matters, important in themselves, but by definition subject to the greater matters of which they must play a contributory not definitive part.

  The Conservative and Labour parties and the rest do not want debate on the great matters not least because it would expose their complicity in the dissolution of our country over the past 50 years.

  Yes, Labour are right to advocate the re-nationalisation of British Railways, but they do not do so from a Unionist perspective, we support re-nationalisation because we recognise the deep national reasons for doing so, not least the physical binding together of our people from one end of the United Kingdom to another.

 This is a convenient point to remember, not least because no one else will that the Labour Party continues to boycott Northern Ireland by refusing to stand Labour candidates there.

  As for the current cause célèbre: opposition to a referendum on the Union, rather than assert our unitary, integral and parliamentary constitution. They both worship at the referendum alter, as an alternative source of authority in the United Kingdom to override parliamentary constituency authority when it suits them.

  They both support legislative devolution and will increase it’s power and patronage. Legislative devolution is a referendum generator. So long as legislative devolution remains on the statute book, the next referendum is not that far away.

 They both will support another referendum when the time is right for them.

 The most significant aspect in both manifesto launches has been the absence of any proposals for further “progressive” social policy to further the "equality and diversity" agenda, both parties have been so successful in legislating in this area in order to alter and eradicate our Christian Protestant constitution, foundations, laws, conventions, traditions and culture and replace them with a secular and selfish society full of debt and consumption that they can now safely stop, until they think of something else.

On this matter, their job is done. Secularism and the power of the market have now meshed together to be the dominant force in what is left of British society.

  The power of the British state and the established religion have now been pushed to the margins and what you see in your streets, villages, towns and cities and not least on your screens is the consequence.

  Mrs May and Mr Corbyn have this week shown us that they have nothing to say on this.

 This subject more than the constitution and even more than mass immigration will determine the future of our country.

Blackmail

 The SNP cannot initiate a referendum on the Union or give it a majority in the HOC.

 Even if they won all the seats across Scotland (59 out of 650) in the British Parliament, it is a numerical impossibility.

 At present, only the Conservative, Labour or Liberal Democrats or an amalgamation of them could give a referendum a majority in the HOC.

 (we will not here, go into the impossibility of a referendum overriding our parliamentary constitution)

Today in the 59 constituencies across Scotland the Conservative Party is promising to oppose another referendum even though the only party that has initiated not one but two referendums is .....the Conservative Party and the governing party is.....the Conservative Party. 

 It is saying, vote for us or you will face another referendum.

 This is blackmail.

 The only reason the Conservative Party is getting away with this is that there is no new formation, no nationwide unionist party at a UK level to challenge and defeat them on this and other issues from the perspective of the British interest.

 This is also the reason why unionists are now being urged to vote (tactical voting) for the Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrats, in order to “SAVE THE UNION” while it was…….. the Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat parties that have voted for over twenty years in the HOC to get us into the devolution mess we are now in, not the SNP.

 

13 May 2017

Bored?

 

In this empty and overlong seven weeks and two days general election where all the essential matters facing the Nation are forbidden to be debated (Parliamentary government or referendum government, Immigration, British Army (now down to 78,000), Devolution, Abortion, The Authorisation of Money, Credit Control, Re-opening Coal Pits, Territorial Defence etc) it is only natural to get bored.

In the meantime we recommend,

BANG! A History of Britain in the 1980’s by Graham Stewart a book that recognises the pivotal nature of this decade to Britain’s past and future.

Do Not Reward Betrayal.

 The Conservative Party assisted by the Labour, Liberal parties have voted for a general election. Commonrepresentation.org.uk warned of the provisions of the Fixed Parliaments Act a number of years ago, as we said at the time, the Act shifts power from the individual MP (and the electorate) to the Conservative and Labour executives.

 The Conservative Party has called for a general election not, to atone for it’s part in the moral, social, economic and political disintegration of the United Kingdom, these past fifty years or for even the specific action of initiating two referendums on the Union or it’s coup detat of last June and July .

 The general election is a simple tactic to extend Conservative power.

 With a slender 12 seat majority, Theresa May decided to eat her words again (as she did on the 24th of June 2016 when she reversed her life long support for membership of the EU in a millisecond in order to get the keys of No 10 Downing Street) to prolong the Conservative sell off of Great Britain.

This general election has been choreographed for months.

This tactic also permits the Conservative party to pose as unionist while knowing full well that it was it that put the Union in danger in 2014 in order to get a softer landing on the other side of the 2015 general election.

 The Conservative Party seeks votes from unionists desperate to escape from the threat of another referendum that the Conservative Party itself initiated on the 16th of March 2017.

While the prospect of a referendum did not exist on the 15th of March it did after the May/Peston interview on the 16th. In the interview Theresa May launches the prospect of a second referendum and permits it to hang in the air despite the Conservative government having the power to rule it out constitutionally and legally if it wanted to. This is the groundwork for the the general election to be announced just one month later.

 The threatening of unionists with another referendum and blaming it on the SNP is a means of whipping unionists into line and voting for the Conservative Party.

 We now have unionist campaigns advocating a vote not just for the Conservative Party but for the very same parties that got us into this mess in the first place.

 The SNP has been sponsored for 20 years by the Conservative, Labour and Liberal parties who are the originators of the constitutional mess that has frozen all other serious political matters in aspic while the Nation is measured up, secularised and monetised, ready for the final further sell off.

 These parties care nothing for the Union, for fifty years they would not touch a unionist with a bargepole now they come wanting our votes.

 Do not reward betrayal.

 In the present circumstance the unelected Conservative government will rely on votes from three distinct groups to win the election: those happily stuck in 1976 who comfort vote and habit vote in order to hide from the Britain of 2017 that they see outside their windows, they are joined by the secular and selfish, who care for nothing beyond themselves and the worship of money and consumption and now they are joined by unionist’s so desperate to save the United Kingdom and who see no alternative formation to represent their good intention’s and honest opinion, who will hold their nose at the moral stench of voting for the Conservative Party believing that they are giving their vote in defence of the Union.

 A general election is not enough.

The British electorate is trapped and the Conservative Party knows this because it set the trap.

 The only way out for the British people is a new political formation dedicated to the moral, social, economic and political restoration and renewal of the United Kingdom.

 Without it the Nation is finished.

A Shell Nation and the Paper Tigers

 

commonrepresentation.org.uk has highlighted previously that the UK is highly exposed not least on our defence, infrastructure and power generation fronts.

 50 years of moral, social, economic, political and constitutional dis-integration have led to a Nation that is now largely a shell.

 Our Christian civilisation and culture has been pushed to the margins. Social bonds have been dissolved and each is set against the other. Our national industry and infrastructure have been demolished. Our constitution torn apart.

 While we still continue to use our Christian inheritance and fabric as the background of our daily lives (from the expectation of kindness in our relationships to the expectation of the punishment of lawbreakers) all the essential elements that made us a great nation are not now being replenished and passed on to the next generation (it is the state approved secular religion of equality and diversity that is being promoted for transmission to the next generation) as has been done in the past.

For fifty years we have increasingly thought less about the serious and long term responsibilities of nationhood and thought more about short term, shallow materialism and playful selfishness.

 This is especially visible when we look at serious matters such as defence, infrastructure and the provision of power generation in the United  Kingdom.

The British Army is now under 80,000 (500,000 in 1960).

 The Civil Defence Corp was abolished many years ago (330,000 strong).

Today we have 6 Border Force vessels to patrol the entire British coastline (Italy has 600).

 The Conservative and Labour parties have brought us here.

 They are paper tigers and our enemies know that.

 While outside our Parliament, the dead lie in the streets, inside, the Conservative and Labour parties continue to destroy everything that made us a great nation.

Conservative Party Launches it’s Second Referendum on The Union.

 

On the 7th of January 2012 no referendum on the Union existed.

 

On the 8th of January 2012 David Cameron Leader of the Conservative Party

in an interview with Andrew Marr initiated the first referendum on the Union.

 

 

On the 15th of March 2017 no referendum on the Union existed.

 

On the 16th of March Theresa May Leader of the Conservative Party

in an interview with Robert Peston initiated a second referendum on the Union.

 

The SNP have never initiated a single referendum.

 The Conservative Party have now initiated two.

 

It's your Choice.

The British people or the Conservative Party.

 

 

12th March 2017 

The British Centre

  

For 50 years the attack on the British constitution has been targeted at the periphery, the outlying parts of the Nation.

 This has been most evident in the pushing of legislative devolution and PR and foreign interference into Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

 They are now floated as embryonic statelets in an emerging federal state.

  The coup de’tat that took place in the UK between the 24th of June and the 13th of July 2016 has now brought the weight of the “progressisve” revolution to the very centre of the British state.

  The coup appointed a new primeminister, a new government, new ministers, new departments and most of all a new manifesto, a manifesto the complete opposite to the one voted for by the British people in the 2015 general election.

  The referendum mechanism has been used effectively in shutting down parliamentary representation and replacing the rule of law with the rule of the Conservative Party mob.

 Rather that stand up for their principals and the parliamentary representation of their electors, 600 MP’s elected on manifesto’s to stay in the EU now prostrate themselves before the referendum device and vote to leave.

There is no admission that their previous position was wrong or an explanation of the political and constiutional reasons why they have changed their minds (which all are entitled to do given new evidence or experience and then place that new opinion before their constituency electorate).

Theresa May is the prime example of these MP's.

  They have reduced their personal convictions and manifestos to dust.

  The consequence of the coup and the casting aside of parliamentary representation is that the centre of British politics – the British House of Commons and the government that should be made from it and the civil service are operating outside the control of the British people.

 

The British have lost control of their country.

 Theresa May, Leader of the Conservative Party refuses to say no to the SNP and shut the door on a referendum.

 To do so would be the right thing to do.

It would be the constitutional and parliamentary thing to do.

It is what a party loyal to the British people would do.

 It would remove immediately doubt and division.

 Certainty and unity would return and we could begin to put our country together again.

 

 Just as David Cameron initiated the previous referendum on the Union for narrow Conservative Party reasons, rather than say no, Theresa May and

the Conservative Party are playing with the matter for narrow party reasons.

  

Maybe aye maybe naw.

They are letting the matter hang in the air.

They are doing this for narrow party interest.

They believe that electors who want to see the Union defended have no where else to go

and will vote for the Conservative Party regardless of their policy on the Union.

 The Conservative Party is the party that initiated the referendum on the Union.

 (Here is the transcript of the Conservative Party Leader initiating the referendum on the Andrew Marr Show 8th January 2012

The SNP can be blamed for many things but not the referendum on the Union.

 

The Conservative Party likes referendums.

 Since 2010 It has had 4.

 

 Referendum on Wales Devolution 2011

 Referendum on PR 2011

 Referendum on the Union 2014

 Referendum on EU membership 2016

 

It will have another one on the Union unless you stop it.

 Do Not Vote for the Conservative Party.

Politics by Proxy

and the “Dictatorship of the Air”

 

Britons today cannot afford the bus fare to their local town centre never mind afford air travel to America or elsewhere overseas.

The recent demo’s in the United Kingdom regarding the United States of America’s entry policy

(entirely a matter for America and none of our business) is politics by proxy.

 The demo’s and attendant coverage are superficially about American policy but are more deeply about Britain and the challenge to the “progressive” revolution in Britain over the past fifty years.

 To the supporters of the 1960’s “progressive” movement (including the Conservative Party) their political narrative is meant to linear.

There is not meant to be another narrative.

Their opinion and outlook is meant to be the only one.

 The internet (the printing press of the 21st century), the rise of independent media and the loss of the EU membership opinion poll has shattered their “worldview” and narrative.

 An alternative narrative now exists, they know this and they fear it.

 They fear the “progressive” revolution will be reversed.

It is no surprise that air travel and open borders and the mass movement of people are the issues that have generated so much angst and coverage among them.

 Most of the advocates and virtue signallers of the new “progressive” caste travel this way (See also Vassal Territory Blog Entry 51), conveniently overlooking their precious carbon footprint and ironically, for a group so self consciously modern, they ignore all the wonders of modern technology that have reduced the need for the physical transit of people, such as (widely available) mobile phones, the internet, video conferencing and 3D printers etc.

 They are largely engaged in the soft, globalised, digital, entertainment, media, service, finance sectors, and that nebulous strata of “management” that floats from one sector to another with no root in a particular discipline, knowledge or trade.

 These are all activities highly suitable for digital methods of communication and output with little need for physical transit.

 This new caste has echoes of the

“Dictatorship of the Air” element of H G Wells 1933 book “The Shape of Things to Come”.

It tells of a dictatorship coming to power after war, an executive emerging from the surviving transport systems across the globe and exercising power.

 A dictatorship intent on creating a world state and utopia according only to their tastes and their interests.

Wargames

 

It has been reported that Theresa May has been “wargaming” a second breaking up Britain referendum.

 This should come as no surprise to visitors of this page.

 Conservative Party Central Office has been instrumental in calculating the impact and the triggering of the previous referendums.

The Conservative Party has no interest in the Union, for years it has regarded the Union (and the wider heavy responsibilities of nationhood) as a nuisance and a hangover from the past.

 For them the Union and nationhood are matters which distract from their primary purpose which is to secularise and monetise the United Kingdom’s resources (including people) and make money for their client pool.

 The barge pole has been their chosen method of dealing with the matter of the Union for decades.

It is the absence of a national unionist party (which actually did exist in a number of manifestations from the 1920s until 1965) that has allowed the Conservative Party to masquerade so long as a unionist party.

 The path has been set.

 The unelected government of Theresa May emerged from a referendum and a coup de'tat not a British general election.

 The referendum is their favoured weapon.

So pleased is the Conservative Party with their coup de’detat of July 2016 that they are now preparing for another attempted overthrow of British parliamentary representative democracy, yet another attempt to eject the northern part of the Kingdom from the Kingdom against the expressed electoral will of the electorate in that part of the Kingdom.

 In 2015

59/59 constituencies across Scotland authorised their MP’s to go and sit in the British House of Commons

(including 56 SNP MP’s who stood on representational manifesto’s not one stood on an abstentionist manifesto). 

All 59 constituencies across Scotland voted to be part of the British nation. 

Commonrepresentation.org.uk commented at the time of the 2015 general election result that the representational manifesto commitment

meant that the “the Union is Secure”, it was and it still is constitutionally and legally. 

It is only the Conservative Party not the SNP, that can now undo the unambiguous decision of the British parliamentary

constituency electorates across Scotland in 2015 to be part of of the Union.

 The Land of Make Believe

 

Rather than have a general election after the EU referendum the Conservative Party conducted a coup de’tat and then had a make over.

 The Conservative Party replaced the only manifesto authorised by the British people with one that was not authorised by the British people.

 

Some who regard themselves as unionists find comfort in the Conservative Party (July 2016 Edition)

 They ache for the Conservative Party to like them.

They long for the Conservative Party to like Britain.

 They remember Sundays full of the Kirk, the Mail and the Post and rolls and potato scones.

 

They desperately believe the

choreographed imagery of the vicar’s daughter, talk of a “precious Union”, talk of grammer schools, talk of an independent Great Britain,

talk of immigration control, talk of defending British industry, talk of a Britain “coming together”,

although there is no talk of reducing the abortion limit or introducing credit control.

 

It is not 1976.

It is not even 1982.

It is all fiction.

It has all gone.

 

It is a land of make believe.

 

They cling to the Conservative Party and it’s cassette recorded nostaligic mood music because deep down they know that the country,

on it’s present course is finished and they cannot bear to make the necessary effort to save it.

 The Conservative Party – A Branch Office of the SNP

  Mundel the unelected (elected on the 2015 Conservative manifesto not the 2016 Conservative manifesto) Secretary fo State for Scotland

has put on record that the devolved

parliament will be allowed to vote on the repeal of the 1972 European Act (although it is legally prevented from intruding into Foreign Affairs).

  The Conservative Party will also introduce a new Scotland Act although (to avoid parliamentary accountability) this may be done through

another “legislative vechile”.

 SNP - Sponsored Everyday by the Conservative Party

 “Supreme” Court Malarky 

Constitutional and European Aspects

  The Supreme Court, conveniently for the Conservative Party

 overlooks, assumes and accepts that the Conservative government has a mandate to implement it’s policies, it does not.

 The July 2016 appointed (not elected) Conservative government has no mandated manifesto.

  The only manifesto that has a mandate for government today is the May 2015 Conservative manifesto under Cameron.

  That manifesto supports membership of the EU and is completely endorsed by Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove etc…….

 The July 2016 appointed Conservative government has not submitted it’s manifesto to the electorate and is governing unelected in opposition to the only  

manifesto that is mandated by general election…the Cameron manifesto.

 Of course governments must bring high and important legislation to parliament for approval but for the “Supreme” Court to rule on the Article 50 panto and
