Anyone who relies upon the BBC or the national press for
information will be well educated about the McCanns, the size of Jordan's
breasts and the decline of the English football team.
But they will have
little or no idea of what is really going on in England. They won't understand
that successive Governments have deliberately signed treaties which allow
England to be torn apart and recreated as anonymous administrative regions. They
won't understand that the EU's defenders don't play by old-fashioned rules of
decency and honesty.
For a while I believed that the United Kingdom
Independence Party (UKIP) offered the best hope to those of us who don't want to
see Britain swallowed up by a new European superstate.
I supported UKIP
(and spoke at their annual conference) because I believed it was the most
significant political party opposing the European Union and the handing over of
our sovereignty to a group of nameless, unelected bureaucrats.
years ago UKIP seemed to me to offer hope, enthusiasm, passion, purpose and
It seemed to be a genuine fourth party - threatening to
become a major player in British politics.
But UKIP seems to me to have
lost its way.
I have three major criticisms.
First, despite many
opportunities, and much enthusiasm from willing supporters, UKIP has failed to
establish itself as a significant political party with genuine policies on
issues that matter. What is UKIP's policies the war in Iraq? Maybe they have a
policy and its my fault for not knowing what it is. Maybe it's their fault for
not making sure that I know. No, I don't know either. I did write and ask to be
told their view on the Iraq war. I never received a reply.
despite the fact that its membership is almost exclusively opposed to the
European Union - and wants the UK to leave the EU as soon as possible - UKIP
seems to me to be curiously muted in its comments about the EU. Maybe I'm being
unfair about this. But it's the way things seem to me and perceptions are
crucial. Now that a number of UKIP's leading figures have become MEPs, with
seats in the European Parliament, the party seems to me to have become rather
less strident in its criticisms of the EU. Is that unjust? Possibly. But, again,
perception is vital. I can't help worrying that some of UKIP's leading figures
might have been infected just a little by the European disease. Could they have
gone native? I don't know. But the uncomfortable feeling is there and it won't
go away. (I was startled when UKIP's official magazine refused to accept
advertising leaflets promoting my books attacking the EU and supporting England.
The excuses they produced - and the way they seemed to use spin to try to escape
from an embarrassing situation - did not impress me.)
Third, and most
important, UKIP has been overtaken by events.
Sadly, I believe that the
United Kingdom is finished.
The Scottish Parliament, and the Scottish
nationalists, have seen to that.
The Scottish and Welsh nationalists
think that their countries are heading towards independence. They don't realise
that they are heading not towards independence but towards European
regionalisation. The Scottish Parliament is, in reality, merely a Regional
Parliament of the EU. The same is true of the Welsh Parliament. But the Scots
and the Welsh don't realise this. They enthusiastically support membership of
the European Union because they foolishly and naively believe that staying in
the EU will enable them to reach full independence.
Scotland and Wales
will survive only as regions of the EU. But that is more than will happen to
England. When the European plan reaches its final stages, England will become
nine anonymous regions. English history and culture will be forgotten.
There is little point in UKIP fighting to save something that is already
lost. The evidence isn't hard to find and UKIP's leaders should have seen it.
After all, the vast majority of UKIP's votes come from English electors. Very
few people in Scotland or Wales vote for UKIP - or care about the United
UKIP has missed the point, the vote and the chance of a future.
I now believe that England's hope lies with the English Democrats.
And that those of us who care for England - and want to fight the EU -
should join the English Democrats.
The United Kingdom will not survive
I believe England's only hope is to create an English
Parliament, escape from the European Union and declare independence. This is a
rearguard action and it's one that everyone who cares about England should
I believe that the English Democrats offer England the best hope
and I'm proud to be a member.
Their slogan is `Putting England First'
and I approve of that.

England depends on you.
And time is running out.
