    I agree but I don’t think it’s helpful to label people. The media magnify the flaws of the right and left to off the other side and create division. When in truth most people float around the middle and 80% of the population agree on 80% of issues.
    I saw a recent interview with Jordan Peterson in which he said the greatest thing the establishment fear is a united society because a united society awaken and channel their anger towards those in power.
    I don’t think the government relish having a majority because then they have no excuse for not making real change. It’s all a show. A political party make a lot of promises, get voted in with a majority and then after that it’s scandal after scandal over a 2 or 3 year period that manifests in a PM quitting, snap election, hung parliament, coalition, strong opposition, weaker government and no real changes. The same cycle goes around every few years.

    The identity politics issue is bad. It’s forced with an agenda to create a mentality where people are put into boxes. It’s there to create division and segregation whereby people judge others based on their skin colour or sexuality and not their character. But there again, the media on both sides grift off of this. Right wing media portray the left as mentally unhinged and the left wing media label all conservatives as nazi bigots. In truth, most conservative thinkers don’t care if 2 men wanna get married just like most liberal thinkers know that it’s wrong for a man to participate in women sports for example.

    If Badenoch wins (and I hope she does), I’d back her to stare down disgusting imports from the US such as identity politics and CRT and consign them to the sewer where they belong. She’d also expose the hypocrisy of the postmodern left.

    Yeh. I like what bits ive seen of her but I haven’t seen much and don’t know where she sits on a lot of issues. She does seem to talk sense though. I see the guardian have already labelled her a sort of poster child for the far right. Typical.

    The Guardian is little more than a sixth form common room rag. It ceased any relevance as a serious journalistic production years ago. The likes of Jones and Sarkar are totally laughable.

    The irony of them moaning about fascism, far right and just about any other smear they can throw at people who have the temerity to disagree with them whilst resisting just about any policy to effectively police the border is not missed. Its like, erm if this country is so bad chaps, then why are people so desperate to come?

    Another book recommendation, Fishy… Konstantin Kisin’s Love Letter to the West. As for Badenoch she is a small state, low tax politician. How this all translates into detailed policy is going to become clearer.

    Good job we didn’t get the chaos that Ed Miliband was going to inflict on the country.

    Just re-read your previous posts, obviously this government is far too left leaning.

    That may be your conclusion, certainly isn't mine nor necessarily of people of lets say, Maurice Glassman.
