The deluded chattering classes saw the Whigs hanging Labour and the Tories, destroying Britain in the process
On the completion of the first 100 days of the Tory Whig Alliance, the news media has rushed to review the outward signs, but its the results of the first hundred days that will impact in the months to come.
In the confused few days as “Bottler” Brown desperately tried to cling to power, having been convincingly kicked by the electorate, some Tories and Whigs were preparing to do the unthinkable and form an alliance government. Uncannily, this process is being repeated on the other side of the world in Australia.
In Britain, the national socialists of the Blair Brown Regime thought that they had managed to rig the election and win a further five years to enable them to create a long term national socialist one-party state – Blair’s 100 Year Reich. It came as an unpleasant surprise to find that the voters had finally seen through the hugely expensive propaganda campaign of thirteen years. Unfortunately, the propaganda had served to reduce public confidence in politicians, preventing a conclusive victory for an alternative party. The result was also distorted by the gains made by the UK Independence Party which managed to grow its vote to one million, but without achieving a single seat. One estimate from opinion polling showed that the UK Independence Party would have polled more votes than any other party, had a proportional voting system been in place (this is based on respondents saying that they did not vote UKIP in May because the election system would not have given them any seats, making it a wasted vote, but, that if the prospect of UKIP MPs increased through fair boundary adjustments and a proportional voting system, they would either vote UKIP as a first or second preference – if the sample was really representative, that would make UKIP the largest Party). As it was, the UK Independence Party vote cost the Tories outright victory with a working majority.
The Whigs may think that an Alternative Vote system will give them more seats, but the probability is that an AV system would see the UK Independence Party picking up most second preference votes and making major gains in first preference, leading to a new political pecking order of Tories and UKIP tied for first place, the Whigs just beating Labour to a very poor forth place, and several seats going to extremists such as BNP and the Greens. The end result could then be a Tory UKIP Coalition and a major upheaval in Europe.
Given the situation, it still took courage for the Whigs and Tories to come together. A large percentage of both Parties have not taken to the alliance concept. There are stories circulating that Whig Leader Nick Clegg lied directly to Tory Leader Cameron, about what had been offered to the Whigs by Labour, to secure an agreement that was out of proportion to the Whig position. A large part of the Whig Party is brought together in hatred of Tories and the Alliance, although in other issues they continue to be a seriously fragmented fraternity of don’t knows and extremists who never expected to be forced to put their ideas into practice. The Tory Party also has a majority coming together against the alliance, and yet the Coalition Government continues to function remarkably well.
The failed remnants of the Blair Brown Regime are fighting each other for control of the Labour Party and appear to still believe that the voters got it wrong in May because they didn’t understand the question. They hope that a new General Election will be called any day and that they will sweep back into power as though nothing had happened.
It is difficult to believe that the Tory Whig Alliance will last for a full five year Parliament, but it may last much longer than any critic currently expects.
In the first 100 days, the Tory Whig Government has taken a number of steps to restore civil liberty and reduce public spending. Much of this has been done without much public information, one of the early priority steps being to dramatically reduce the amount of tax pounds spent on propaganda. This has come as a major culture shock to a news media that had become accustomed to being presented each day with a stack of news stories written by the Blair Brown Regime propaganda ministry. Journalists are now being forced to go out and look for stories and many of them are finding that they have forgotten how to do that.
With a shortage of propaganda, the news media has contented itself with recycling gossip, guesswork, and outright lies.
The result has been that news concentration has been on any snip of information leaking from any of the research groups set up to offer a selection of options to the Tory Whig Government. Most of those options will not be adopted for many very good reasons. There are also a number of dinosaurs from the national socialist era, senior political police and quangocrats, who are hoping that if they keep repeating the mantra of the previous 13 years they will get to keep their inflated salaries and gold plated perks.
The reality is that the worst efforts of the Blair Brown Regime will continue leaking through for at least another two years. The mass printing of money in the hope of buying the May election is still working through the economy and is already forcing up inflation. There is a very real risk that Blair/Brown-created Stagflation could still cause economic meltdown. If it is averted it will be an amazing achievement by the Tory Whig Alliance and it could lead to a major restructuring of British politics. The Tory Whig Government also faces direct attacks from Brussels as Eurocrats seek to force their undemocratic agenda on those countries unfortunate enough to be EU Member States. It remains to be seen how the Government will deal with this threat because the Whigs are in favour of total surrender to Brussels and the Tories are minded to take on the undemocratic Eurocrats and force a redirection of EU objectives with the introduction of concepts alien to Eurocrats, such as thrift and accountability, democracy and justice.
It is unlikely that the new Government will bring to trial senior figures from the Blair Brown Regime. A politician usually is uncomfortable about putting an opponent on trial however richly deserved that might be. The Blair Brown Cabinet should be put on trial for war crimes. Had they been running a third world country they would already have been taken into custody in Holland. It would be more appropriate to put them on trial in Britain for treason and other criminal charges.
As the criminal trial is unlikely, there is a great need to set up a Truth and Reconciliation Tribunal, although this would require further public money. Taking the established principle of a criminal not being allowed to profit from his or her crime, there is a strong case for seizing the assets of former members of the Blair Brown Regime and their accomplices.
Those very reasonable and necessary steps to justice may not be taken and what we may get in their place is a regular release of news stories setting out the scale of incompetence and corruption of the Blair Brown years. This is unsatisfactory because it does not bring the criminals to account for their crimes and, after a time, these horror stories will lose their impact. There is much to be said for public beheading and the placing of body parts on pikes as a warning to others.
In many respects, Britain is waiting in a phony war period. Some important steps have been taken to reduce public waste and restore civil liberty, but a great deal more must be done. That all takes time and time is one thing that the Government does not have in abundance. During the next six months unemployment will rise and inflation will become a major risk. People will lose their homes, many will become bankrupt and many companies will be destroyed. The benefits will take longer to work through.
From a good start, and a lot of skill, the Government has a very long way to go and the path will be painful. The US is already showing signs of slipping back into a deeper recession that risks taking the rest of the world with it. However, the greatest danger is that China may begin to fall apart. It has enjoyed dramatic growth over ten years on the back of the debt fueled growth in North America and Europe. With these markets shrinking, China is now at risk of a recession of its own. Coupled with many political pressures internally, this could lead to a series of new problems that will make the banking crash look almost insignificant.
In this developing environment, the Tory Whig Alliance may be forced together as Britain faces the most challenging period since 1914.
