How We Can Rescue
Our Country From The Fascists Who Have Stolen It
If, when you've read this piece, you agree with my fears
please either send the report to a friend or ask them to read it on this
1. The big question we should be asking is not: `When will
Blair leave office? but: `When will he be arrested as a traitor and war
2. Blair - and just about every other senior British
politician for three decades - has betrayed British electors. They have sold our
country and taken away our hard won democratic rights. We have been
disenfranchised by dishonest politicians.
3. Ted Heath was just the first
in a long line of politicians who betrayed their country. What a tragedy it was
that he died before he could be hung as a traitor.
4. We now live in a
fascist country where the state is all and where everyone is guilty until
investigated. (And then they're proven guilty.)
5. Our government is
fond of telling us that the states we're at war with are fascist. But Britons
(like Americans) are the ones with a fascist government. Britons are living in a
6. Fascism was invented by Benito Mussolini. Here is how
he defined it: `Liberalism denied the state in the name of the individual;
fascism reasserts the rights of the state as expressing the real essence of the
7. Mussolini also pointed out that: `the more complicated
the forms of civilisation, the more restricted the freedom of the individual
8. Fascism reduces our freedom and privacy because only the
state really matters and the state (and those who work for it and control it)
take precedence over everyone and everything else. In a fascist country the
state comes first and the people come second. The state's employees exist to
defend the state (rather than to care for the people) and their loyalties are to
the state. That's the fundamental difference between a fascist state and any
sort of democracy.
9. Democratic states provide leadership; representing
the people in the nation's relations with other countries and making decisions
designed to protect the safety of the citizens. They also manage the
infrastructure without which no country can survive; providing services which
can not properly be provided by individuals within communities.
time a government does anything that isn't protecting the lives, liberty and
property of its citizens it is exceeding its authority.
11. Running an
army is an essential government activity. Providing a decent transport
infrastructure (roads and railways) is an essential government activity.
Starting wars for no good reason is not within the remit of a proper
12. Politicians in the world's two largest fascist countries
(Britain and America) were hired to protect individual citizens. However, they
have adopted policies designed to exploit the citizens and to take advantage of
them. Politicians who were elected to look after the voters now expose the
people they are paid to look after to increased danger. These fascist
governments exist to protect their own personal survival rather than to protect
the interests of the electorate.
13. The British people didn't want to go
to war with Iraq. Parliament didn't want to go to war with Iraq. It was always
clear that going to war with Iraq would dramatically increase - not reduce - the
danger to individual citizens. (Decent countries don't start wars unless they
are necessary for the defence of the realm.) In the end Britain went to war with
Iraq because it suited Blair's personal agenda. We went to war with Iraq so that
Blair could ingratiate himself with Bush and other powerful Americans and,
therefore, ensure for himself a more than ample income on his
14. The basic principle by which fascists stand is that they
have no respect for individuals or individualism. The state is all. And the
functionaries of the state make all the decisions. How else would you describe
the politics of Blair, Brown, Blunkett and Brussels?
15. We are living in
a fascist country and we have been politically disenfranchised.
are in the middle of wars we didn't want.
17. We are going to be saddled
with the EU constitution we didn't want. (EU politicians are bringing the
constitution back. They have decided that the people who voted against it were
just wrong or stupid or not entitled to have an opinion. This, remember, is the
EU which costs us £200 a second more than we get out of it. And it's the EU
which is so corrupt and full of fraud that auditors haven't approved its
accounts for 11 years on the trot.
18. We are going to be forced to buy
identity (ID) cards we don't want (and have never wanted).
19. There are,
of course, still some sweet innocents who will tell you that if you haven't got
anything to hide you shouldn't worry about ID cards. Read on.
they bring in ID cards you will have to attend an appointment to be
photographed, have your fingerprints taken and iris scanned or you will fined up
to £2,500. (Incidentally, I'm a doctor and I'm not convinced that iris scans
won't endanger your sight.) You'll pay up to £100 to get your compulsory card.
That's £400 for a family of four. And another £400 per person every time you
move house, change jobs, find you've got another disease or buy a new car.
21. You must promptly inform the police if you lose your card or it
becomes defective. If you don't do this the punishment will be up to 51 weeks in
22. You must promptly inform the National Register of any change
of address. You will have to give all your previous addresses and all your
current addresses - wherever they are. So when burglars get hold of the register
they'll be able to check on where you are and where you aren't. They will,
therefore, know which house to burgle.
23. You will have to promptly
inform the National Register of changes to your personal life. Or there will be
more punishments. And you'll have to pay every time you change
24. You will of course have to carry your ID card at all times.
25. `I have no problem with that,' said someone I know. `What's wrong with being
expected to carry an ID card?' Well, apart from the fact that there is something
intrinsically fascist and oppressive about being expected to carry
identification with you at all times, one problem is that if it is illegal to
leave your house without an ID card then there has to be a punishment for not
carrying an ID card. To begin with the punishment will probably be an arrest, an
appearance in court and a fine. But, historically, all the evidence (from Nazi
Germany and the USSR) shows that the punishments will become increasingly
severe. (The fines will provide easy pickings for a Government which is obsessed
with gouging money out of already stretched taxpayers.)
26. People who
lose their ID cards (or go out without them) will become lawbreakers with
criminal records. This was exactly what happened in Nazi Germany and in the
27. The Government's plans for ID cards may well break
Human Rights legislation on privacy and discrimination. The Government intends
to demand and collect so much personal information that they will breach our
right to privacy.
28. A joint House of Commons and House of Lords
committee on human rights said that the amount of information due to be held on
ID cards amounted to a: `significant intrusion into private life'. The committee
also said that they were: `concerned at the range of information that may be
held on an individual's record and its apparent lack of relation to the
statutory aims (of the Bill)'.
29. The information on ID cards can, of
course, be recorded and used without the knowledge or consent of the individual
concerned. Information on ID cards will be made widely available to civil
servants and Government employees. And information will be sold to private
30. People applying for a new or renewed passport will
automatically have to buy an identity card and will not be free to refuse
31. The Government intends to put the following information on ID
cards: previous residential status, address of main home and any second homes,
details of how often name has been accessed by others, date and place of birth,
physical characteristics, fingerprints, nationality, medical details, financial
details, criminal record and anything else they think they might be able to sell
to data processing companies.
32. Politicians have stopped referring to
identity cards. They now prefer to describe them as `entitlement cards'. I
presume that by this they mean that if you have one you will be entitled to stay
out of prison but if you haven't you won't. The phrase `entitlement card' is, of
course, just another addition to Labour's newspeak dictionary and fits well with
such modern standards as `collateral damage' and `friendly fire'.
cards are being sold to us on the grounds that they will help the Government
keep terrorists out of the country and make our country safer for us. This is a
34. The claim that ID cards will help protect us from terrorism is
such a silly lie (and so easy to disprove) that the only surprising thing about
it is not that people believe it (most people will believe anything the mass
media tells them as long as they are left to get on with getting drunk and
watching Eastenders) but that the Government actually had the nerve to suggest
35. The truth (and I'm glad you're interested because no one in the
Government or the media is) is that just about everything the Government does to
fight terrorism (including ID cards) makes it easier for terrorists to
36. Politicians want ID cards because ID cards will help them
control us. When you accept an ID card you lose power, independence and freedom
and you give all those things to the authority which has issued the card.
37. Spain had ID cards before the Madrid bombings, and the alleged
September 11th hijackers all travelled on legitimate papers.
38. Even if
terrorists can't get hold of legal identity cards (a task which won't be any
more difficult than getting hold of legal gas bills, legal passports or legal
credit cards - in other words ridiculously easy) they will make their own.
39. The only way ID cards will help prevent terrorism will be if
terrorists get ID cards with the word `terrorist' embossed on
40.Independent researchers at the London School of Economics have
pointed out that the Government's ID card scheme could be a `one stop shop for
fraudsters'. They pointed out something I've been warning about ever since the
scheme was first mooted, which is that if thieves manage to steal your
fingerprints or iris scan you will lose these very personal bits of biometric
data for ever. Unlike your bank details you can't change your iris scan every
time it gets nicked. But fraudsters will, of course, be able to fake up iris
scans and fingerprints.
41. `Instead of wasting hundreds of millions of
pounds on compulsory ID cards...let that money provide thousands more police
officers.' Tony Blair, speaking in 1995, before he met George W.Bush and bought
a house worth several million pounds.
42. The proponents of ID cards seem
to ignore the fact that in order to obtain an ID card (and prove our identity)
we will be asked to produce some identification. What will we be told to
produce? Passport or driving licence. Two easily forgeable pieces of
43. ID cards will, of course, be easy to
44. As the Labour Party became more desperate to `sell' ID cards
to the public their ramblings became reminiscent of their attempts to explain
the war against Iraq. The words `desperation' and `surreal' refuse to go away.
`ID cards will help you get into America faster,' said one Government Minister,
implying that the cards would in some way help tourists by-pass long queues at
American airports. Anyone who believed that one would probably also find comfort
in the suggestion that ID cards would help us check our criminal records more
speedily. Maybe Labour wants to turn us all into criminals (it is certainly
doing its best) so that we will all be able to realise the benefits of having ID
45. The new ID cards will contain a chip which will tell them
where you are every minute of every day of your life. Since it will be illegal
to go out of your home without your ID card (and its implanted chip) the
Government (and anyone to whom they sell the information) will always know
exactly where you are.
46. And here's another thought that should make
you go cold inside. The proponents of ID cards are already suggesting that we
have identity chips implanted under our skin. `This would have made it easier to
identify bodies after the tsunami,' they announced, with breathtaking bad taste.
`Embedding chips under skin is much better than a tattoo,' said an enthusiast.
`We can get more information on an embedded chip than can be put on a tattoo.'
Would you be happy for the Government to tattoo you with a number? Now, who else
was it who did that?
47. The Government also wants to control store
cards. They want to know how much money you've got, what you buy and where you
buy it. They want to have a monopoly over information about you.
should all fear the introduction of identity cards and we should all refuse to
have anything to do with them. If ID cards are introduced it will be the crooks
and the fraudsters who will benefit most and the honest citizens who will lose
out. Terrorists and criminals will find that fraudulent ID cards (easily
obtained) will provide them with a veneer of respectability. The feelings of
distrust which will rise among the honest public as officials abuse their power
will mean that cooperation with the authorities will deteriorate still further.
Petty officiousness and heavy-handed behaviour by thugs with authority will
destroy any remaining trust and faith in the police. All this has happened every
time and everywhere ID cards have been introduced.
49. ID cards bring
with them the assumption of guilt (rather than the presumption of innocence).
They bring state interference and take away individual freedom, they bring
coercion and remove consent.
50. Decent, upstanding citizens may believe
that they have nothing to fear from ID cards. But they are wrong. And when they
discover that they are wrong it will be too late to do anything about it. If he
has never protested or been a member of any protest group, the honest citizen
may not have experienced the way policing is managed already and he may not fear
that he will be harassed by the police simply for going about his lawful
business. But when the state is run by and for villains and extremists it is
only the villains and the extremists who will thrive. When the police are hated
rather than supported, when harassment is commonplace, then it will be the
law-abiding who will have most to fear.
51. The bottom line is scary:
Identity cards will make your identity easier to steal.
52. Some naughty
protestors are threatening to disrupt the ID card system by crossing their eyes
in front of iris scanners. Others intend to claim that they have undergone a
religious conversion and insist on wearing burqas which will hide their faces.
Burqas are traditionally worn by women but it would clearly be sexual
discrimination not to allow men to wear them too.
53. The Government has
admitted that it will sell the information on ID cards to anyone who wants to
54. The cultural identity of nations is being changed (for ever)
by mass immigration. There is a huge difference between the sort of immigration
we have today and the old-fashioned immigration which took people off around the
world in search of new adventures and new excitements. Today most of the people
moving around the world have no interest in the culture, history or lifestyle
where they are going. They go for other reasons and their roots remain in their
country of origin. (France, founder nation and controller of the EU, has its own
rules, and immigrants to France are strictly controlled. England, which is four
times as overcrowded as France, obeys EU laws and allow unlimited
55. Here are some very specific examples of the fascist
state in action:
1. A woman who read out the names of British soldiers
who had died in Iraq was arrested.
2. An animal rights campaigner,
peacefully inviting passers by to look at his leaflets about vivisection was
reported by the police for a breach of the 1824 Vagrancy Act because he:
`attempted to obtain or gather alms by exposing wounds or deformities'. It took
three policemen and two community support officers to invoke the 1824 Act (which
was originally designed to stop soldiers who had returned from the Napoleonic
Wars displaying their tattered limbs in the street in an attempt to beg money
for food) and to take away the campaigner's animal rights material.
heckler who dared shout out 'Nonsense' during a speech by the hideous Jack Straw
at the 2005 Labour Party Conference was manhandled and forcibly ejected from the
building by two stewards (one of them a professional bouncer). He had his
security pass confiscated. The 82-year-old Jewish refugee of Nazi Germany,
mildly diabetic and hard of hearing, was detained under the Terrorism Act when
he tried to re-enter the hall.
4. A woman who wore a T-shirt carrying the
words `Bollocks to Blair' was taken away by police.
5. A woman who said
on the radio that she did not believe homosexuals should be allowed to adopt
children was contacted by the police who told her that she had been responsible
for a homophobic incident - which they regarded as a priority crime.
When the Chinese leader last visited Britain, people concerned about China's
record on human rights wanted to protest peacefully. They were dragged away by
police to avoid embarrassing the Chinese leader.
7. Six students at
Lancaster University were prosecuted for demonstrating on their own campus. The
students were charged with `aggravated trespass' after they heckled at a
corporate conference held in one of the University's buildings attended by
representatives of an arms dealer, an oil company and a drug company. The
protestors, who were accused of interrupting a speech by Lord Sainsbury of
Turville (the Labour Government's Science Minister) said that they were
concerned about the commercialisation of research. One of the students was
arrested immediately after the protest, the other five were summonsed five
8. The British Government has brought in endless European
laws which are not wanted by the British people. It is planning to break up
England into nine regions. England is not recognised by the EU. No one has ever
been given the opportunity to vote for this. Voters in the North East of England
were given the chance to vote for or against a Regional Parliament. They
rejected the Regional Parliament. But as I've been warning in my book England
Our England for years, all nine new regions of England have had secret
Parliaments for ages. The vote was an undemocratic nonsense. More fascism in
9. During the European elections a pensioner put up a poster on
which he wrote: `Free speech for England. Don't forget the 1945 war.' He was
arrested and charged with racially aggravated criminal damage.
Planning meetings are now a waste of time. Local communities can spend years -
and huge amounts of money - fighting a planning application and winning only to
find that the Deputy Prime Minister will overrule the democratic process because
he doesn't like the result. That's fascism in action.
11. There are
around four million surveillance cameras in Britain. That is more than six per
square mile. Only Monaco (where every square inch of the principality is under
24 hour Government video surveillance) has more cameras. It won't be long before
Britain catches up since our Government is having more cameras installed every
day. The evidence shows that they don't help the police catch criminals and they
don't prevent crime. CCTV cameras are the main reason why so many city-centre
thugs now wander around wearing hooded jackets.
12. A group of excited
schoolchildren, visiting London for the day to take photographs in aid of
charity, were marched away when they tried to take photographs of Trafalgar
56. There are dozens more examples of practical fascism in action
in my book Living In A Fascist Country. The police in Britain are allowed
to shoot innocent people with impunity. They can drive at 159 mph without even
having points put on their licence. The Government has brought in so many
oppressive new laws that not even the lawyers can keep up with them. It's
difficult even for decent citizens to avoid breaking the law on an almost daily
57. On top of all this taxes are constantly rising. And the
Government's desperate need for more funds to finance its fascist ambitions
means that thousands of honest, hard-working citizens are constantly being
persecuted by tax offices struggling to satisfy the Government's unquenchable
thirst for money. And day by day it's getting worse. Is it any wonder that every
year 300,000 hard-working Britons leave the country to live abroad?
So, what's behind all this? What's going on? How have we acquired a fascist
government and become a fascist country. First, of course, there are the
politicians. They're in this for the money. Forget public duty.
59. Politicians have twigged that there is an easy way to
get the votes they need. The micro management fascist style of government
favoured by the British Labour party has led to a dramatic change in the way
people behave. The Government's programme of welfare support and its blind
enthusiasm for means-testing mean that increasing numbers of people are now
content to lie back and let their nation look after them. Instead of encouraging
and rewarding self-sufficiency the Government is encouraging dependence. This is
not going to be easy to cure and is almost certain to get considerably worse
before it gets better. There are millions of citizens in Britain today who
genuinely believe that the State owes them a living. They seem to assume that
the State has a duty to provide them with money and services and they never seem
to question the origin of either. Their dependence on the State is the reason
for their loyalty to the State. They will keep voting for the fascist state
because it cares for them. If you add together the number of people living on
state benefits and the number of people receiving state salaries it comes to
around 25% of the population. Guess what percentage of the voters put Blair into
power at the last election? Around 23%.
60. The Tories have realised this
and that's why Cameron and his sad bunch of moronic henchmen are aping the
policies which kept Blair in power. It's why it doesn't matter a damn whether
the Tories or Labour get in. They're interchangeable.
61. Alexis de
Toqueville predicted, early in the history of new American republic, that
democracy would last only until the public realised it could vote largesse to
itself from the public treasury. How absolutely right he was.
Brown and company have shamed us all. They have made us all complicit in murder
and they have made those who fight for their country into war criminals. They
have continued to adopt policies leading directly to the destruction of England
and Great Britain. You might imagine that a Tory party would be opposed. But
have you heard the Tories criticise Blair or attacking his fascist friends in
Brussels? The Tories have abandoned us and disgraced themselves in a desperate
and despicable search for power at any cost. By voting for the EU and for
illegal wars, and by abandoning England and Britain, they have done their part
to devalue politics and democracy.
63. Politics in Britain is dominated
by Scotsmen who are no friends of England. No one who cares for England should
vote for any of them. As an Englishman I am now a member of an endangered ethnic
group which the EU, aided and abetted by the Government, is attempting to
destroy. It's the silent holocaust.
64. The denial of England and
Englishness is turning the English into stateless persons. This is silent,
bloodless ethnic cleansing. It's genocide without the blood.
leading politicians are so corrupt that the only safe assumption today is that
everything we are told is a lie. This isn't paranoia. It's survival. It's the
only truth worth believing. And the media, in its most powerful forms, is as
responsible as the politicians. We have to stop being nice about these people.
66. I am sometimes criticised for being rough on politicians. Well, shucks.
They're stealing my country and my freedom and my privacy. What the hell am I
supposed to do? Offer them tea and cucumber sandwiches?
67. Talking of
being rough on politicians. I am fed up of Brown being portrayed by his chums in
the media as an economic wizard. If Brown is anything mystical he's a witch not
a wizard. He has destroyed this country's economic stability with his obsessions
with red tape, means-testing and central control. No one, in the history of this
country, has ever done more damage to our economy than this exceedingly
ambitious and unpleasant little Scotsman. It was Brown who sold the nation's
gold at rock bottom prices. It was Brown's policy which destroyed pensions for
68. The sooner the BBC disappears, the better chance we will
have of recovering our democracy. If the BBC ever had a debate on the EU the two
sides would be: `Is the EU a wonderful thing' or, on the other side, `Is the EU
a very wonderful thing'. If the BBC had a debate on Blair it would be: `Is Blair
our greatest ever Prime Minister' or: `is he the greatest ever world
69. I believe there is a BBC bias in favour of the
70. Buy a TV set from a store such as Currys or Comet and they'll dob
in you to the TV licensing gestapo. And then you start getting the increasingly
hostile letters. Actually, James Whale of Talksport has a good idea. He says
that after you've had a few of these letters they send someone round to knock on
`Good evening,' he says, when they arrive.
TV licensing,' they say.
`Thank you for coming,' says James politely. And
he shuts the door on them.
He says that if you panic and blurt out `Oh,
dear I meant to get a licence but never get round to it' then you're in
Sadly, there is a snag. The TV license gestapo can goosestep off
and get a warrant if they think you've got a TV but haven't paid for a licence.
(James, of course, doesn't have a TV set.)
71. Our national
newspapers aren't much better than the BBC. I never really expect the media to
review my political books - and they don't. Despite the fact that my books on
politics are probably the bestselling books on the subjects in the country they
haven't received one review. I'm not whingeing. I would be surprised if they
had. But, what does surprise me somewhat is the fact that advertisements for
books of mine such as England Our England and Living in a Fascist
Country have now been refused - even by papers such as the Daily Mail
and the Daily Express which you might expect to be concerned about these
issues. I even prepared an ad which said simply `Banned' and gave the title of
one of the books. The papers refused to accept that advertisement. My books tell
the truth. Maybe that is too frightening to be allowed.
72. The United
Kingdom is finished I'm afraid. The experiences of UKIP show that most people of
Scotland and Wales are no longer interested in saving the United Kingdom; they
have been suckered into thinking that they have independent futures ahead of
them. They do not realise that they are effectively no more than european
regions; that is their appointed destiny.
73. This is very sad but we
have to face facts. Despite the fact that they receive a subsidy of over £11
billion a year from London, many Scots hate the English and they hate the Union
too. Look at the results of any election. UKIP gets hardly any votes in Scotland
- or Wales either. If you saw the last night of the Proms you will have noticed
that the people in London, in the Royal Albert Hall, were largely waving union
flags. But the people in Scotland, in the Glasgow part of the show, were all
waving Scottish flags. There wasn't a union flag to be seen. The Scots and the
Welsh have been suckered into thinking that their regional EU parliaments are
only a step away from independence. In reality, of course, they're just EU
74. I suspect that the Scots and the Welsh don't give a fig
that Great Britain will soon be no more. And they don't give a fig for
75. We're fighting at the last barrier and we need to fight hard
for an English Parliament, where Englishmen and women can decide the fate of
Englishmen and women. It is absurd and outrageous that Scottish MPs can
introduce legislation on health and education which do not affect their
constituents. And it is equally absurd that any party should consider foisting a
Scottish Prime Minister on us.
76. The English need a party to represent
them and their interests.
77. The State is now your enemy. The biggest
threat to your freedom and prosperity is the Government. They oppose
individualism. They hate entrepreneurs. Fascist states always do.
Most people don't do anything to fight fascism, of course. The apathy is born
partly out of despair. Most people spend their days stressed out of their minds
trying to keep up with all the new rules. And fear is a factor too. The
Government has deliberately made us all afraid. I call it the Tanks at Heathrow
syndrome but it wasn't invented by New Labour. Hitler and Goebels were masters
at making people afraid by creating a fictional enemy.
79. We should be
afraid. But afraid, not of what they tell us to fear, but of them. If you're not
frightened of your Government then you don't know or understand what is going
80. We have to turn our anger and frustration into action. The only
way we'll win is through our passion; because we care more than they do. That's
not difficult. I suspect that all the Blairs of this world care about is money
and status. We've got bigger things to fight for: our history, our culture, our
independence and our freedom.
81. I believe there are still enough
people in this country who will respond to passion, truth and caring. We aren't
alone. Many others are fed up of all the lies and the bullshit. The Blairs,
Browns and Blunketts are a foul cancer that we have to vote out of office; we
need to remove the political scum from public life.
82. Occasionally I
get letters from people criticising me for being too rude in my books. `You
shouldn't say such terrible things about our leaders,' they say. Well, bugger
niceness. It's too late for niceness. There isn't time left to be twee. We're at
war with our own Government. If you don't feel like fighting then just sit down,
have a biscuit and a cup of tea and wait for them to come and get you. Because
83. If everyone reading this tells the truth to one person a
week - give or lend them a book to read if you can't spend half an hour
convincing them - and each of those people tells the truth to another person
then in just a few months we will reach every man, woman and child.
Word of mouth - talking to people - is our greatest weapon.
85. We should
all write to the media and tell them that unless they start telling us the truth
we won't buy their products or listen to their stations. Or pay their
86. Don't ever vote for one of the big political parties again.
Vote for independent politicians who are standing for Parliament because they
believe in something.
87. All we have to do is care enough.
