    Save Brexit By Infiltrating Tories? What Do YOU Think? 


    That bright message below was the inspirational heading on the LeaveEU bulletin I read this morning…

     

    ….and I am passing it on directly to my readers.

    I am not in the UK so cannot 100% judge the mood of the country, hence my question at the top of the page.

    Frankly, I have considerable reservations, both about the strategy and about the explicit depiction of Boris Johnson as the leader-to-be.

    =

    The Tory in-crowd have already expelled a lot of good men (and no doubt women too!) for upholding conservative values…

    Tory Purge – Theresa May Dances To Gaystapo Tune!  

     

    May Extols ‘Gay’ Agenda – Now Her Fans Back Polygamy! 

    …values to which that traitorous vixen May is a stranger.

    Infiltrating to the extent required to take over the party is no simple plan, and, in the time available, seems to me unlikely to succeed.

    As for Boris?

    I honestly don’t think he is a torch-bearer for any traditional values, and his recent remarks about bagheads –As Top Tories Grovel – UK Muslim Woman Talks Sense –  are hardly sufficient to reassure, esp. given his purpose was to reject a ban on the repulsive sectarian fashion.

    Were Rees-Mogg the chosen champion, I’d maybe say give it a go.

    He comes across as a sincere and patriotic person .

    Yet a real patriot party, a UKIP revival, strikes me as a much better plan. If the traitor-class subverts Brexit in the meantime, then they must take the consequences.

    In my view, no form of resistance would be off-limits, morally speaking.

    But I leave it you to have your say, as before.   

     

    Here’s the Leave EU bulletin, in full –

    =

    Britain stands at a crossroads.

    Either we follow Theresa May and end up with “Brexit In Name Only”, which is going to poison and weaken our country for a generation.

    Or we take control of the situation ourselves and stick two fingers up at the anti-democrats who want us to be controlled by Brussels forever.

    Our political analysis is that the Labour Party will split to form a new centre party that will emerge with the People’s Vote and compete on the left with the Liberal Democrats and Labour.

    Corbyn cannot be replaced as the leader of the Labour Party.

    There is a once in a generation chance to unite the right that could then decisively win against a split opposition, in the same way that Mrs Thatcher took on the SDP, Labour and the Liberals to win three decisive victories.

    In those days, Conservatives believed in family values, hard work, prudence and getting on in life.

    We will be carrying out national polling over the next few weeks to launch a national campaign to persuade the Conservative grassroots they need a new Brexit leader that could decisively win again at the ballot box.It is likely that a Conservative Party leadership contest will be held in the next 3 to 6 months.

    Whoever wins it will automatically be our Prime Minister.

    After becoming a Conservative Party member, you will be eligible to vote in the final round of that contest.

    You will therefore have a hand in choosing our next Prime Minister – and in determining the kind of Brexit that Britain gets.

    It is not too late to save Brexit or the country.

    You can help to achieve the clean Brexit this country voted for by backing a Brexit candidate in any future leadership election.

    But the clock is ticking. Every second counts.

    Our plan is to roll out a campaign that connects with local councillors, party chairmen and MPs to change the direction of the party and unite the right.We want people to join the Conservative Party, attend local meetings, and then push for fundamental change within the party.

    Local associations should have power handed back to them including the right to hold primary contests for parliamentary seats and select who they want, rather than have politically correct candidates imposed from the CCHQ candidate sausage factory.

    Why does Gavin Barwell come to mind?! Straight out of school, Oxford, CCHQ, Councillor, MP and then Chief of Staff to the PM without ever having had a proper job or any experience!

    People who want to be professional politicians make awful MPs and our parliament is packed full of them.

    Leave.EU is followed by over a million people on social media, it connects to tens of millions of voters in the UK, and it is the largest grassroots movement of its type in the country.It is clear that a new party will emerge from the call for a second referendum that will split the left and leave a once in a lifetime opportunity for the Conservative Party.

    Watch this spot as we start the “Conservative Grassroots Mutiny” campaign. Anyone wanting to get involved, drop us a line.

    There are a few extreme People Vote MPs that need to walk the plank, Anna!

    Arron Banks
    Chairman

    * The system of electing the leader of the Conservative Party consists of two stages:
    1. Conservative MPs select a choice of two candidates to present to the entire Party membership.
    2. Party members then vote on a “one member one vote” basis for their preferred candidate.
    Conservative Party membership costs £25 per year. The rules state that in order to vote you must have been a fully paid-up member of the Conservative Party for three months “from the time of call for nominations by the chairman of the 1922 Committee”. The three months runs from the date of your first direct debit, so pay by card.

      If the Tories EXPEL May and Soubry and Clarke and every other liberal and roll back all the liberal laws they have voted for, if they guarantee getting us out of not just the EU but the ECHR and any other tresties and conventions that infringe sovereignty, great idea to join them.
      Not going to happen.
      To suggest a few thousand of us can join the Tory Party and then clean out all the leftwing infections in a year or two? We would need to deselect half their MPs for a start. Who thinks that is do-able?
      Not on your nellie.

        Rees Mogg is what you say he is, sincere and patriotic.
        Therefore he will never become Conservative leader.
        Johnson might, but after his years as Mayor of London?
        He can occasionally be amusing but he is not conservative, not at all.
        The ruling class is our enemy. Infiltration is not an option.
        We need a revolutionary movement.
        UKIP?
        Maybe, but some of us believe we are past the stage of party games.

      After what I said in my comment less than 24 hours ago, I am now more than ever convinced that the Tories offer no hope.
      ….
      “I have long said, and repeated again and again, that I think the policy needs to be changed but I’m supporting the person,” said Rees-Mogg, adding: “Theresa May has enormous virtues. She is a fantastically dutiful prime minister and she has my support. I just want her to change one item of policy.”

      In turn, Davis meanwhile stated that he has made it clear he thinks May is “a very good Prime Minister”.

      “Like Jacob, I disagree with her on one issue, and it’s this issue,” he said, in reference to her proposed deal with the EU…”

      There you have it, in RT.
      Dave Davis clear as day, saying he agrees with May on everything except Brexit.
      He suggests Rees-Mogg is of the same mind.
      What possible reason would we have to welcome their taking command at Westminster.
      May’s views are liberal. She has said so herself.
      Her programme is all about enacting the worst sort of liberalism, some of which you have reported, like the indoctrination of schoolchildren into transgender ideology, and her multiculturalist delight in the sharia which should never be tolerated in any Western country.
      Yes, we must see the back of the eoman. Not, though, if her replacements will just preside over more of the same.

      I told you a long time ago that I cannot abide Boris Johnson but the way the media and the lefty mob are calling him a racist for what he said about burkas is out of order.
      Muslims are not a race. They are a religion. I saw a white Muslim on tv and another on the street at a demo and I saw a documentary about Chinese Muslims a while ago. Pakistani Muslims are brown and the late Muhammed Ali was black.
      How can criticising Muslims be racist?

    Brilliant Exposure Of Burqa Hypocrisy! 


    I have to hand it to Leave EU  ( to whom serious freedom-fighters should donate –  www.leave.eu    info@leave.eu ) for their latest bulletin on the Boris/Burqa shock/horror story.

      It offends me the way some of these people react when anyone points out how childishly intolerant of criticism they are, but nobody cares how much we British are offended.
      It’s very offensive to see these women, if they sre women, who knows, eyeing all about them from behind their sinister masks.
      I agree with you that many of Boris Johnson’s words are motivated by self-promotion.
      But in this case he is making fair comment.
      To say these women look like letter-boxes is not insulting. It’s a fact.
      They knew they were migrating to an advanced Western country, so if they are unwilling to change their backward ways, then back they should go.

    Had they possessed sufficient vertebrae, they WOULD have ‘stood up’ to the naughty Brexiteers, right?

    “Europe?” What’s Ghastly Guy On About Now? 


    The European parliament’s Brexit negotiator has launched a scathing attack on Boris Johnson, saying his recent criticism of young voters who feel allegiance to Europe was “old-fashioned” and “nonsense…”

    That Europhiliac fanatic Guy Verhofstadt was making an indisputable statement when he told a special meeting of three committees in the Irish parliament that it was perfectly possible to feel European while at the same time feeling allegiance to your country of birth. 

    A quick aside, though, before we get into the nub of the matter. One assumes the report refers to EIRE’S parliament…

    Was that a call for a return to colonial rule?

    As the Guardian helpfully tells us –

     Kipling’s poem captures the nostalgia of a retired serviceman looking back on his colonial service and a Burmese girl he kissed.

    Aaah, ‘it’s in his kiss,’ as a 1960s song had it!

    Maugh Bo Bo, a Burmese doctoral student…said offence could be taken because the poem talks about kissing a girl, something that would be frowned on in the context of a temple.

    But the kiss in the poem did NOT occur in a temple, did it?

    Are the Burmese as uptight about a decent heterosexual snog as some other people…?

    Hey, Snoggers! Need Coaching? Contact Jakarta Police! 

    Or does the unspoken objection perhaps relate to a kiss between a white man and a brown girl?

    I’d have thought Kipling would merit applause from those who commend inter-racial harmony!

    And I’d have thought, too, there are better issues for the media relentlessly to batter Boris about…

    Sexist Saudis! BTW, Did Boris Vote To Affront Women’s Rights? 

    …and for the Foreign Office to be made to answer!

      We never did get an answer to that, did we? Did our Foreign Office that’s always busy-bodying about and telling people how much the British Government cares about ‘human rights’ actually support the Saudis in that UN vote?
      If they won;t answer that simple question, then Our Man in Rangoon, or whatever they call it now, should keep quiet and let Boris quote Kipling as much as he likes.

      I think Kipling’s great. He was the only poet I liked when I was at school.
      I don’t think Boris is great though. He’s a total twit.

    Sexist Saudis! BTW, Did Boris Vote To Affront Women’s Rights? 


    Saudi Arabia has invited women to a sports stadium for the first time to attend annual national day celebrations with their families, state media said Wednesday, opening up a previously male-only venue.

    WOW! Real progress, huh?

    =

    =

    Should normal people around the world, unafflicted with the rancid sexism that characterises the kingdom, rejoice.

    NOT!

    Those happy families will be seated separately from single men!

    What kind of yard-stick are we expected to use when measuring the rights of half the population?

    Sure, it marks a shift from previous celebrations in the kingdom where women are effectively barred from sports arenas by strict rules on segregation of the sexes in public.

    But the proper place to judge Saudi Arabia, which, the report notes, has some of the world’s tightest restrictions on women…

    But guess which country sits on that august body?

    Saudi Arabia!

    Bloody Belgians! But Did UK Also Back Shariah Sexist Saudis? 

    And guess who put them there?

    Well, you’ll have to guess!

    Because I’ve seen no updates on the question we asked back in April, when it was reported that at least five EU states must have voted for the Saudis to serve a four-year term on the commission in the secret ballot.

    This is an issue that should not be allowed to go away, the way the despicable Eire Government  –  I use them because thanks to some Eire politicians with a conscience, the issue was (unsuccessfully) pursued there -which weaselled out of telling the truth about how it voted – tried to make it go away.

    Their foreign minister, a man called Charlie Flanagan (above) arrogantly declared that it would be “very damaging to Ireland’s ability to conduct international relations” if he revealed the Government’s voting preference.”

    The Irish Independent offered the answer the gutless government wouldn’t give.

    .It is very likely that Ireland backed its candidature. Dublin officials insist it is not linked to a current campaign by Ireland to secure a temporary seat on the UN’s controlling security council.

    How many of our readers in the UK emailed their MPs to see if they had asked Theresa May and/or Boris Johnson how Britain had voted?

    Same goes for citizens of France, Germany Holland, Italy etc.

    It’s NOT too late!

    Shame them into owning up – or get a denial of guilt and thank them.

    An email only takes five minutes.

    A miniscule investment of time and energy if the dividend paid out is truth.

      So much for the Dublin Government’s commitment to women’s rights.
      I would like to criticise but I would not be very surprised if Britain too voted for those Saudis.
      I don’t trust Theresa May who was praising sharia law a few months ago or Boris Johnson who turns in the wind like a shirt on a washing line.

      Theresa May is a big supporter of sharia, she said so herself. I will put money on it she gave them Britain’svote.

    An Unholy Alliance Against Self-Determination? 


    What have the US State Department, Boris Johnson and Iran’s backward and brutal ayatollahs got in common?

    An obdurate hostility towards self-determination.

     Sure, we don’t expect any better from Tehran’s benighted regime…

    ——-

    ….but wasn’t it Boris who set himself up as champion of British self-determination last year in the Brexit campaign?

    And has not one American Secretary of State after another made incessant noises about every people having the right to choose its own government – except Tibet, of course.

    So what nation’s aspiration has brought these powerful forces together in hostility to freedom, a hostility shared, it might be added, by Turkey’s Erdolf.

    The Kurds!

    US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert -“We support a unified, stable and a federal Iraq.” For the Americans, the referendum, “would distract from urgent priorities and that be the defeat of ISIS.” 

    British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson remarked, “. Unilateral moves towards independence would not be in the interests of the people of Kurdistan Region, Iraq or of wider regional stability. 

    Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei commented, “Iran opposes holding talks of a referendum to partition Iraq and considers those who fuel the idea as opponents of Iraq’s independence.

    But just look at that map, above.

    The territory inhabited by Kurds is larger than Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and Syria, and at least as large as Iraq.

    Their conduct in the war against ISIS has been exemplary.

    The Kurdish women above, like all Kurd patriots, are, moreover, sworn enemies of our enemies, the sectarian dictators in Iran and Islamist Erdolf, whose view on the Kurds’ referendum was as follows –

    “A step toward the independence of northern Iraq is a threat to the territorial integrity of Iraq, and it is wrong.”

    This from the autocrat who, not that long ago, was openly eyeing a carve-up of Northern Iraq to expand his own borders?

    …it would upset the apple-carts of more than one insalubrious regime!

    The quotes come from a Kurdish news site, which also offers opinions, some of which make sense.

    …as the Kurds eye independence, they will slowly grasp that the international community will never settle on a propitious moment to secede from Iraq.

    Logically, therefore, there should be no hesitation in going ahead with the referendum in the Kurdish area within Iraq’s present frontiers.

    But the commentator, Barak Barli, then goes on to draw precisely the opposite conclusion…

    The key to success may lie in delaying the vote in exchange for ironclad guarantees that independence will be negotiated in the coming year.  

    http://www.rudaw.net/english/opinion/31082017

    But what value is there in such guarantees, ironclad or otherwise? Ankara and Tehran will under no circumstance approve independence.

    And even if London and Washington were to shift their position and show sympathy – unlikely – there’s NO way they’d be prepared to back up any guarantee with force of arms, given all they have gone through in the Middle East in recent decades.

    Go for it, Kurds!

      I am not disagreeing with you about the Kurds, Ross, but you have not said anything at all about the Catalans!
      Do they not have the same rights to self-determination?
