The British Lion has roared! To be more accurate, the English and Welsh have chosen freedom. The echoes of that choice will be heard all over Europe in the next few years and will bring the tyranny of Strasbourg’s blasphemous new Tower of Babel crashing to the ground!
So we are delighted to say that we was wrong when we predicted a narrow Remain victory. The British people stood up better than we feared to the intense moral blackmail of the Establishment’s ruthless exploitation of the Jo Cox murder. The opinion polls were wrong – probably on account of the reluctance of some members of the public to say how they were really going to vote on account of the Politically Correct bullying that the liberal elite considers ‘debate’.
The victory belongs, we have to give credit where it is due, to Nigel Farage. Without him there would have been no referendum. But he was propelled into the position where Cameron was forced to grant one by two factors. The first is that, ten years ago, after nearly 20 years of studiously ignoring the issue, Mr Farage started talking about immigration. The second is that he was allowed to do so on the fanatically pro-immigration BBC.
Why? Because the BBC had realised that smears and repression were failing to halt the advance of the much-maligned, and definitely far from respectable, British National Party. “Use Farage to stop Griffin” became the strategy that the BBC used absolutely shamelessly in the European Elections of 2004 and 2009, and in the General Election of 2010.
At a party political level, the BBC trick was successful. It did block the BNP and contributed to its eventual complete collapse. But at a metapolitical level, the BNP’s work as an ice-breaker to smash the taboo against discussing immigration, and the way in which liberal elite fear of “those ghastly people” led them to promote what they thought would be the harmless Ukip safety valve, now emerge as factors of absolutely enormous importance.
When an organisation as powerful as the BBC decides to interfere with the democratic process, and cynically tries to manipulate the people who fund it, the scheme brings into operation the Law of Unintended Consequences.
Last night, that Law came into force. The BBC only wanted to stop the British National Party from winning four or five seats in the European Parliament. To do so they gave Nigel Farage a licence to be a populist rebel.
In 2004, 2009 and 2010, the BBC decided to promote Nigel Farage and Ukip as a way to block the “ghastly people” of the BNP. But hose apparently successful attempts to subvert the democratic process have now has rebounded on them to the nth degree.
There would have been no referendum without a victorious Farage. No victorious Farage without BBC support. No BBC support for Farage without the threat of the BNP. And no threat from the BNP without the sacrifice and courage of about 1,000 activists. That shows just how much difference ‘ordinary’ people can make at crucial moments in history.
Because the Unintended Consequence of the BBC’s undemocratic meddling will go far beyond Great Britain. The echoes of the resulting lion’s roar will trigger political earthquakes not just in Westminster and Brussels, but over the next two or three years in Paris, Berlin, Denmark and a dozen other European capitals.
The BBC thought they had come up with a cunning plan to stop a small party of radical nationalists giving voice to the legitimate but Politically Incorrect concerns of England’s forgotten working class. Instead, they have started the chain-reaction demolition of the entire European Union.
The result is a massive blow for the freedom of all the nations of Europe. It will also throw a massive spanner in the works of the Brussels machinery of confrontation against our brothers and sisters in Russia. The looming threat of war just receded, and Peace has taken a big step forward. This morning, let us rejoice, for the tide has turned, and a new era has dawned!
We have used the term ‘Unintended Consequences’ but, at a deeper level still, what has just happened goes much, much further than that. This is not random chance. This is Providence!
