    What Next? A DUP/UKIP Merger? 


    An interesting article in a part of the media I’ve not heard of before, called the ‘Observer,’ though it doesn’t seem to be that more well-known and horrendously ultra-liberal thing ‘The Observer!’

    I won’t go through all the writer of the article, Andre Walker, says, since you can read it for yourselves quite easily here –

    =

    A Deal to Save Brexit: Nigel Farage Should Take UKIP Into DUP Merger

    oooooooooooooooooo

    =

    Many years ago, I mooted a UK-wide Unionist Party, though in those days the base I foresaw for this development was what’s now the almost defunct Ulster Unionist Party.

    Mr. Walker realistically recognises how the times have a-changed, the UUP replaced as Ulster Brits’ spokes-party by the Democratic Unionists.

    ========

    =======

    He proposes that UKIP and DUP coalesce into one nationwide party!

    His proposed name, the United Kingdom Party, is good enough to be going on with.

    But the main thrust of his argument – that there is more to political life than Brexit – cannot be gainsaid.

    It’s a reasonable conclusion from recent events that while most Brits are glad to be on the way to self-government again, that very fact led voters to skip UKIP as a necessary choice – why vote for something we have already, by democratic referendum, achieved?

    That ‘achievement’ is of course in jeopardy, because the big parties simply cannot be trusted.  But many, if not most people, still plainly find it hard to grasp that the British political elite would stoop to thus damning democracy.

    =

    =

    Wishful thinking is a dodgy basis for putting a cross on one’s ballot paper.

    What’s needed is a powerful political bloc, with a secure popular base, albeit a limited, to start with, geographical base.

    What is also needed is a firm embrace of traditional British values, those rejected by the LabLibCon clique…

    =

    ======

    …and a firm commitment to let Brits make direct decisions on the restoration of a way of life on the destruction of which they were never consulted.

    Swiss-style democracy, popular vote, not handed down by a condescending elite, but ON DEMAND, if a given percentage of voters require it.

    =

    =

    Thus the repeated refusal by arrogant parliaments to hold referenda on capital punishment, Cameron’s contemptuous dismissal of calls for popular consultation on so-called ‘gay’ so-called ‘rights,’ and the indifference of the in-crowd to public indignation over failure to deport unwanted aliens…

    =

    =

    …ALL of these issues would be subject to the highest court!

    Not the stuck-up sticky-beaks in Strasbourg…

    ………

    ===

    ….but the court of People Power, the verdict delivered via the ballot-box.

    I know I have a lot of UKIP supporters among my UK readers. I’d be interested to learn that they think.

      No objections from me.
      DUP would get a big boost if they had a mainland branch.
      The trouble is that UKIP might just see DUP as their Ulster branch.
      There needs to be a canny approach to this idea.

      Unity is strength. The bigger the party the better. Its just common good sense to get together with everyone who agree on the big issues.
      The problem might be some many egos in Ukip.
      Nigel could do it.

      I think it would be a tremendous idea.
      Not so sure about the name though, why not call it a more inspiring name, like the British Peoples Party?

      If they can work it out, yes, Ross, it could make a big difference.
      I read that all the Ulster-haters in Westminster are saying May must not make a deal with unionists because she has to be an honest broker between us and the IRA.
      Makes you sick, that Perfidious Albion mentality. A lot of people here in Ulster just cannot understand why the English love to kick their friends in the teeth.

    A Glance At Guardian Shows Us – DUP Offers A Good Deal of Sense! 


     

    There must be a lot of people on the British mainland who have never gone across the water to visit that small corner of the British Isles that’s the homeland of the Ulster nation.

    =

    I went lots of times back in the days when I lived and worked in the UK, and enjoyed all my travels among those fine, friendly folk. It wasn’t just a geographical outing to go there.

    =

    =

    Better to say it was a refreshing cultural experience, to be among people where real British values, degraded and distorted almost beyond recognition in London and other metropolitan, cosmopolitan centres, still held sway.

    That’s not to say that Ulster’s Democratic Unionist Party is an exemplar of all that’s wonderful. It isn’t.

    But compared to most of the decadent drones who run the UK media and the deadbeats in Westminster…

    =

    =

    …their elected representatives are a grand bunch, and to have them in a position to provide checks and balances can be nothing other than a good thing.

    The Guardian published some details on the DUP MPs, meant, no doubt, to be a source of shock and horror to left-liberals.

    But what’s reported offers ample reassurance to those of us who shudder at the way May has advanced some of the worst Tories – Damien Green the most obvious example – in her post-election reshuffle.

    I provide the link below, but to brighten the day of true conservatives in England, Scotland and Wales, here’s a little bit about the men and women to whom we must look to keep the flag flying in the fight against dark forces.

    Arlene Foster…the daughter of a part-time policeman who was shot by the IRA when she was a young girl. She was almost killed herself when the IRA blew up her school bus in 1988 – a reminder of how Sinn Fein/IRA shared the moral turpitude of the Palestinian terrorists with whom they’ve oft declared their solidarity.

    =

    =

    Arlene showed a perceptive grasp of history when she snubbed Eire’s official centenary celebrations of the 1916 Easter Rising against British rule because, she said, it was “an attack on democracy.”

    ======

    =

    =

    Good to make Brits remember the ever-ready sympathy of the alien republic with Britain’s enemies, like De Valera/Hitler, or that swine Haughey’s efforts during the Falklands Liberation War.–

    Eire’s bigotedly anti-British Defence Minister branded Britain as the aggressor, a crude and ignorant jibe…Dublin’s entire foreign policy was based on imposing foreign rule on a British community…Falklands Pride, Yes, but Reflect on EU Back-Stabbing 

    Then there’s Ian Paisley Jnr.

    I didn’t always like what his famous father said or did, most of all the Reverend’s u-turn on sharing power with the SF/IRA murder-gang…

    .

    .

    …but his son deserves loud applause for his stand for decency. The Guardian tells us he neatly defined homo ‘marriage’ as “immoral, offensive and obnoxious.”  

    AND…

    =

    =====

    And top marks for his call for republican terrorists to be shot on sight, after a 2008 Republican attack on a police patrol.

    And if we knew only that Jeffrey Donaldson MP had served as the late great Enoch Powell’s election agent…

     …then that alone would be powerful reason to be cheerful.

    However, the Guardian’s hack takes the opportunity to slur the Ulster Defence Regiment, which was, as Robert Booth admits,  part of the British army…

    But in the alternative universe inhabited by the Guardian…

     Booth provides republican ‘view’

    ———

    …we are told the UDR was viewed as a locally recruited Protestant militia, feared by  Catholics.   https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/jun/11/dup-whos-who-party-members-prop-up-tories-theresa-may

    Viewed by whom? Catholics?

    Catholics loyal to Queen and County had nothing to fear from the UDR.

    ====

    ====

    Indeed, when it was established, the UDR tried to recruit Catholics  – the regiment began with Catholic recruits accounting for 18% of membership – (wikipedia)

    – but SF/IRA intimidation, targetting Catholic UDR personnel, whittled this down to a tiny percentage.

    Donaldson too, like Paisley Junior, has good personal values, as when he talked about the ‘queer cake’ case.

    Gaystapo Wins in Ulster – A Dark Day for Freedom, Decency and Logic! 

    He admirably compared the perverts’ demand that Christian bakers make their wedding cake to asking for a cake in a Catholic area celebrating the Shankill Butchers, a murderous loyalist gang.

    Nigel Dodds, DUP Commons leader, is another who has personally been targeted by republican terror, while Sammy Wilson MP…

    …whom we have suggested as good ministerial material  –

    Time For Counter-Revolution – Sammy Wilson for Education Secretary! 

      – is especially detested by the Climate Panic pack.

    He once told the media – “I think in 20 years’ time we will look back at this whole climate change debate and ask ourselves how on earth were we ever conned into spending the billions of pounds which are going into this.”

    I hadn’t heard anything really of Paul Girvan but the quote in the Guardian had me almost cheering, here at the laptop.

    “I have no problem with the burning of a tricolour on top of a bonfire, let’s be honest … that’s the flag of a foreign country as far as I am concerned.”

    Not much of interest about the others, but let’s not close without what the Guardian seems to regard as a reprehensible quote from Gregory Campbell, MP for East Londonderry East.

    We’ve heard of him before! Ulster’s Terrorist Republican Minority – A Joke Begets a DEATH THREAT! 

     —-

    GregoryCampbell

     “We will never forsake the blue skies of freedom for the grey mists of the Irish Republic.”

    EXCELLENT!

    Theresa May says she’s a Conservative and Unionist.

    She should publicly echo Mr. Campbell’s words today!

      A lot of sense from the DUP, you’re right, and it’s good to see somebody trying to tell the English voters that our folk might be useful to have in high places.
      I think what has shaken us up here in Ulster is just how much the English Left ( and that includes Tories enough too) hate us for beleiving in things that all England believed in within living memory.
      It’s not us who have let down British values.

    Carve Out The Cancer – Re-Draw Ulster’s Border! 


    • Just a few thoughts on St. Patrick’s Day!

    • ==============
    • Time taken to digest a new situation is never wasted, especially when it concerns a cause dear to the heart.

    • 0000
    • Mural, Shankill Parade, off Shankill Road.
    • ooooooooooo
    • And there’s none dearer than dear old Ulster, where the British majority faces the Enemy Within’s renewed push on behalf of Eire’s expansionist ambitions.

    • Only a few thousand votes separated the Sinn Fein/IRA murder gang party from the DUP.

    • If the forces of evil had edged ahead, we’d see that blonde traitor O’Neill, photographed below with her heroes, Blood-Beast Adams and Murder-Gang McGuinness..

    • .

    • Hasil gambar untuk sinn fein leader 2017
    • …as First Minister at Stormont.

    • That’d be a shameful stain on Ulster’s annals, but in and of itself, only a marginal shift in the political constellation, because ever since Paisley ‘jumped the dyke’ and agreed to work in harness with McGuinness, there’s been constant erosion of Ulster’s identity as a British nation.

    • Rather than examine the election results in detail, better to look at what was said BEFORE the votes were cast, by that little rat Enda Kenny, whose crass interference in British democracy last June opened many UK eyes to the truth…

      Dublin’s Fifth Column Vote Could Sink Brexit

    • ….that Eire remains a dagger poised at Britain’s back.

    • Economic arguments were made much of then by Dublin’s in-crowd. Yet as always, their underlying imperialist arrogance was the key motive.

    • As it remained last week, when ..at a press conference with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker…

    • —–
    • adamskenny

    ==

    • ….Kenny called for any Brexit deal to include a provision that allowed Northern Ireland to unify with the Irish republic “whenever that might occur.”

    • Any attempt to ‘unify with the Irish republic’ which, to Juncker’s undoubted glee, would make Northern Ireland part of the EU once more, would be heavily opposed by Northern Ireland’s unionists…  Irish unification on voters’ minds

      EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEI
    • More than that, it would, and should, rightly be met with armed resistance.

    • Even by the wretched UN’s Charter (which of course is only selectively enforced – Tibetans don’t get a look-in!) every nation has a right to self-determination.

    • If Ulsterfolk find they’ve been outbred (demographic shifts, as posh analysts prefer to say) then of course they’d be well within their rights to war off any move by their hostile neighbour to annex the Ulster homeland.

    • Sinn Fein were instrumental 100 years ago in the partition of the British Isles.

    • Now it may well fall to their ancestral foes to re-draw Ulster’s border once again.

    • It’s no use just saying Kenny “should have stayed out of it,” as one UUP man opined.

    • What is required is for interfering foreign swine to be told to get lost. And that means Juncker as much as Enda Kenny.

    • Just a few thoughts on St. Patrick’s Day!

      You are I’m afraid to say right again, Ross.
      We need to de-draw the lines to keep our wee country safe.
      If some good Ulster families are left outside, it’s no more than happened when the loyal folk in Monaghan and Donegal and Cavan had to be left outside a hundred years ago.
      We have a right to a homeland and it will be a better cleaner homeland if we get rid of dens like Crossmaglen and other places where the IRA are entrenched.

    DUP Does Just Fine, Despite Gaystapo Ranting! 


    First response to the Ulster results?

    Jim_Allister_410683t

    ==================

    • Well done to Jim Allister, back in Stormont, representing his Traditional Unionist Values party, a small but invaluable element in the politics of the province.

    ——-

    But while  the overall picture remains  largely similar to what it was before the vote, there’s one other pleasing result to note. 

    It was a good election for the DUP, with Arlene Foster seeing her party’s support hold firm in her first campaign as leader.

    ==================

    • “I’m absolutely elated,” she said last night. “We’ve had some very strong results.”
    • ===========

    I have been critical of the DUP quite frequently, but to give credit where it’s due, they did save Ulster from the offensive absurdity of so-called ‘gay weddings’ not long ago.

    As a consequence of that principled stand, the militant poofter lobby in the province had announced there’d be a menacing mincing mobilisation

    Northern Ireland gay community mobilises against DUP candidates …

    That report described how irate homos aimed to get voters in their communities to make use of the proportional representation system for the Stormont assembly and vote tactically to keep DUP candidates out.


    gay_inquisition_500_web_001

    • They are also urging the gay electorate to vote against other unionist candidates who have blocked marriage equality.

     

    Well, ho-ho-ho!

    Not only did the DUP emerge in good shape, the largest party in the assembly, but, as mentioned above, TUV’s True-Blue Jim has bounced back with a very healthy vote, all the better to maintain his staunch opposition to the gaystapo’s unhealthy agenda.
