"For because the focus-group-driven Cameroons are aware of the disapproval of core conservative voters, they are tacking to both right and left simultaneously - saying, for example, that they will take stern measures to reduce the financial deficit and safeguard all social programs - and so are coming across as incoherent and unprincipled. They have thus fallen into the greatest of contemporary political elephant traps. For what voters today prize above all is authenticity - the perception that a politician is utterly true to himself, and that what you see is what you get."
Some BNP candidates in this election may lack the polish and slick marketing techniques of LibLabCon, but for me that is a bonus. What you do get are sincerely held convictions expressed with honesty and integrity. That authenticity makes the BNP leagues ahead of the other main parties.
This research showed that although three quarters of the sheep on Hirta had dark coats and larger bodies, it was the other quarter of the population – with lighter coats and smaller bodies – that had genetic traits that improved their ability to reproduce. So not only were generations of sheep getting lighter coats, they were also passing on the genes that governed a smaller body size.
What this demonstrates again is that in both science and journalism, it is much more fashionable to provide accounts which include some theory of the consequences of global warming. We should also “Follow the Money”. Scientists need to research and publish in order to survive in academia. To research, they need research grants. And the people controlling the research grants look extremely favourably on any application that involves anything to do with climate change. It's a form of politically-correct group-think that's driven from the whole climate change industry. The group-think surrounding global warming is a self-sustaining bubble of illusion that one day will burst. Before they pick some other imminent “disaster”, to instill fear while they fleece us.
Has April 1st come early this year?
The late Tony Hancock would have been incensed by this news. :)
We need to be ever vigilant in pursuit of each Briton's liberty in relation to the power of the state. You can't force people to be free, just allow them the possibility. The current political elite seem intent on banning everything they don't like; the mistake would be for the BNP to react by banning everything they disagreed with, without considering the net effect on the freedom of thought, action and expression of the indigenous British.
Here's another by Dr Gabb on Britain's "New Totalitariansim" - complete political control of British society brought about by bureaucracy rather than brute force.
It's ironic that only yesterday, Gatwick security stopped a man for wearing a T-shirt which said "Freedom or Die".
As Tony Hancock said: "What about Magna Carta - did she die in vain?" :)
The assumption that professional teachers can't understand this distinction, thereby requiring bans and more state control, has been part of an underlying process of infantilisation of state and council employees.
