1931 And All That?

Tony Blair always wanted a National Government. If we allowed one of those, then we would never get rid of it. The "wartime" suspension of General Elections would rapidly follow, and the coup would be complete. 

But the numbers are there. The permanent Remainer majority among Conservative MPs is the clear choice of Conservative Associations. The irreconcilable Blairite majority among Labour MPs will be in place until there is mandatory reselection.

The Lib Dems are already absenting themselves in order to ensure that they are included. And John Woodcock has made his move. But Happy Retirement to Margaret Hodge, who has always been in the wrong House.

The threat is real, and Michael Gove, who is no fool and no Brexiteer, always knew that Vote Leave would be recognised as the "official" Leave campaign if it were headed by him and Boris Johnson.

Its activities would then come to light, duly discrediting the revolt of the areas that had swung the referendum against Vote Leave's and against UKIP's Thatcherism In One Country, from which we had already suffered for 39 years, going back to the Callaghan Government's turn to monetarism in 1977.

The clamour for a National Government is motivated by the fact that the answer to that revolt is already on course to be delivered, with the polls now pointing very clearly indeed to a Corbyn-led Labour Party as the largest party in the coming hung Parliament.

We need our people to hold the balance of power. I need £10,000 in order to stand for Parliament with any realistic chance of winning. My crowdfunding page has been taken down without my knowledge or consent. But you can still email instead, and that address accepts PayPal.
