It came as no surprise that the rise of the United Kingdom Independence Party, popularly known as UKIP, would shake the cosy consensus between the three old legacy parties, their bought and paid for media whores and the BBC, right through to its rotten core.
Never in my experience have I witnessed such a concerted effort by the established political class to insult, denigrate and smear a political party that polls less than ten percent of the popular vote in general elections.
This phenomenon not only raises some important issues with regard to the state of British democracy but it also highlights the yawning chasm between the cross party political class and the people they are supposedly representing.
The advent of the professional political class has been accompanied by the demise of democracy; this is particularly apparent by the fact that people enter politics nowadays, not as a public service or a sense of duty after a life long career in the real world, but straight from school as a lucrative, self serving pursuit of political power funded by the taxpayer.
It doesn't take an expert to notice that regardless of party affiliation they are all the same. They dress the same, they talk the same, they have the same mannerisms and they speak in a language dominated by centrally issued slogans and soundbites. They have all been trained in the black arts of media management, spin, deceit together with the ability to lie with a straight face.
They make false promises and lie without conscience to get themselves elected - they are bereft of any semblance of principle. Consequently it is no wonder that when a straight talking party enters the political fray, who accurately articulate the concerns of the people, they are attacked mercilessly by the united political order.
Short of throwing the kitchen sink at UKIP and its leader Nigel Farage, the political class and their media cronies have joined together out of mutual self interest to use every dirty trick in the book to discredit and smear the increasingly popular movement that promotes a return to national sovereignty, democracy and common sense by leaving that undemocratic disaster known as the European Union.
One of the things that becomes apparent by this concerted cross party smear campaign is the unwillingness of the party leaders to debate the issues - the reason being that they would lose, and lose humiliatingly, if judged by the debates between Liberal Democrat leader, Nick Clegg, and UKIP leader Nigel Farage.
If the other two party leaders, David Cameron and Red Ed Miliband are too cowardly to debate the leader of a minor political party, how in God's name can they stand up for the British people's interests against hardened political animals such as Russia's President Putin, China's Xi Jinping or Germany's Angela Merkel?
These two over promoted schoolkids would have difficulty extracting a minor concession from political pygmies of the Herman von Rumpuy/Jose Manuel Barrosso school of bureaucracy, let alone a political heavyweight.
They are unable to debate the issues therefore in the tradition of the new political class they resort to smear and there is no bigger smear at the moment in politically correct Great Britain than 'racist'. It must be the most over used word in the English language. It is thrown around at random on the flimsiest of excuses but unfortunately for the political class its over use is its downfall.
Its effectiveness is lessened the more its used, and in many circles it is becoming a badge of honour to be smeared as a racist by a member of the current political class. It's use as a smear to denigrate UKIP is having the opposite effect by galvanising support and its continued use merely reflects the fact that they have lost the debate on the issues.
The high profile defection of UKIP's so called rising star, Sanya-Jeet Thandi, has all the hallmarks of a set up, choreographed to cause maximum damage at a crucial point in the campaign.
The fact that this student from the radical left wing London School of Economics was openly advocating UKIP's immigration policy days before her defection, and then doing it via the ultra left wing Guardian newspaper, should dispel any doubt that this was choreographed. By her own logic, by promoting UKIP's long standing immigration policy she herself was a racist up until her defection.
There is no shortage of ambitious young ladies willing to volunteer for publicity generating scams such as this. I would suggest that Ms. Thandi has political aspirations and like others before her she is willing to indulge in a publicity generating controversy in order to raise her profile - and make some easy baksheesh in the process.
It was only recently that an obscure actress, Somi Guha was put up to suing Jeremy Clarkson and the BBC in blaze of publicity, in hope of resurrecting her failed acting career while making some easy money in the process. Indian national Ms. Guha was apparently offended by Clarkson's use of the word 'slope' which has no connotations with Indian people whatsoever. Obviously controversies generated by the word 'racist' can be very lucrative as well as career enhancing.
Nobody should be surprised if Ms. Thandi reappears in the not too distant future as an ethnic rising star in one of the established parties. Hopefully it will be with the Liberal Democrats where her treacherous career will be mercifully short.
The latest 'racist' controversy artificially generated by the established political order, ruthlessly executed by the media in order to smear UKIP and cause maximum damage, is the row over an Afghan community ignoring a planning ruling by a North London local authority, safe in the knowledge they will get away it.
Local UKIP candidate, Heino Vockradt gave his view on the issue, not in centrally issued slogans or soundbites but in a forthright language everyone can understand.
With reference to the Afghans ignoring the ruling which has resulted in non Muslims being squeezed out of a shopping street in his area, he correctly states that:
"Political correctness is preventing the council from taking action for fear of being called racist, when, just like in all other cases where Muslims are grooming children to be sex slaves under the eyes of the authorities, the council does nothing".
(He is refering to the local authorities in Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford and other cites in England who ignored Muslim paedophile gangs as they groomed under age white girls before subjecting them to horrific sexual abuse)
Echoing the experience of thousands of communities the length and breadth of the country, Vockradt states that:
"The neighbourhood was already exploding under the weight of segregation, shopkeepers are being squeezed out by Muslims. The entire parade - once lovely owner/occupier shops - resembles Helmand Province".
He went on to state state correctly, and echoing the words of Sir Winston Churchill highlighted in yesterdays post that:
"Islam is a mono-cultural, totalitarian ideology. It is not a religion. It is against multi-culturalism and only promotes its own culture. It is against everything modern Britain stands for".
Right on cue, the Labour leader of the council in question, Mohammed Butt, gave us a pearl of his wisdom using a dogeared, vintage soudbite from the Blair/ Mandelson era.
"In Brent we draw strength from our diversity and the vibrancy that it brings".
You really couldn't make this stuff up.
This kind of candid talk is forbidden in politically correct Britain for fear that the truth will resonate with the electorate, therefore the established political order stamp on it early through their dirty tricks department in order to shut down the debate. The weapon of choice of course is a smear using the word 'racist'.
What the political order fail to understand is that the people have learned by bitter experience the the comments made by the candidate are true, therefore they do resonate with the electorate and the 'racist' smear only hardens the support for UKIP.
In conclusion I will state that it is my fervent wish that support for UKIP holds up in the face of this unprecidented onslaught of dirty tricks and smear and that an electoral earthquake gives the political class a shock from which it will never recover.
Here a racist, there a racist, everywhere a racist racist. A great article from across the pond.
