Boris Johnson, A Kind of Coup d’Etat and the Likely Early General Election: Thoughts

The Brexit mess has become entangled with the straight party-political fight. There are many who despise the Conservative Party who are quite hard-line Leave/Brexit partisans. Me for one. To be pro-Brexit is not necessarily to be pro-Conservative Party, and still less to be in favour of Boris Johnson.

The most recent polling (even more recent than that shown above) shows that most voters oppose the tactical prorogation of Parliament, a higher percentage than those who simply oppose (or support) “no deal” Brexit.

This prorogation feels like a coup d’etat even though, in strictly factual or logical terms, it is not one. This may be because the prorogation does not stand alone. At about the same time as the prorogation has been announced, the eminence grise in Johnson’s wake, Dominic Cummings, has taken it upon himself to sack a Special Adviser (SpAd) even though said SpAd worked to Sajid Javid, who was not even informed until the matter was a fait accompli.

There’s more. Boris Johnson is apparently “considering” preventing Conservative MPs who do not show complete loyalty to him over the Brexit matter (or otherwise?) from standing as MPs in a future (perhaps even the upcoming) general election.

These actions display a mindset which could be called dictatorial or even tyrannical. There are some people who should never hold power, not even so much because they might exercize it in a dictatorial way, but because they would misuse it in a tyrannical way.

The mindset of Boris Johnson is basically tyrannical. When he was Mayor of London and (co-incidentally) large-scale riots erupted, he veered between complete panic and a kneejerk tyranny which included his decision to buy water-cannon, which weapons in the end were never used and in fact could not be used (because not approved by the Home Office for use on British streets). Boris-Idiot is useless in a crisis.

People of Britain….beware. This rootless, part-Jew, part-Muslim-origined narcissist, born and largely brought up overseas, will say, or do, or promise, anything at all to get what he wants, which is (and is only…he has no real ideology or ideals, or even plans) to be in the spotlight.

One can only dread what might happen to this country if Boris Johnson is actually able to have and exercize real power, actually able to pass laws directly affecting the people of the UK and their lives. He is unrestrained by any feeling or understanding of, or for, law, ethics, religion, or even simple decency.

Only one thing stands in the way of Johnson— his non-majority in the House of Commons. It now looks as though Johnson’s plan is to use Brexit to achieve a (misnamed) “Conservative” majority in the Commons. Typically, the msm has got it wrong. Johnson does not want a majority to enforce “no deal” or other Brexit. Au contraire; he wants to use the Brexit situation to gamble on getting that Commons majority, after which he and his pro-Israel, pro-Zionist, pro-finance-capitalist Cabinet of criminals and agents of Israel will start to destroy what is left of the freedoms, rights and public decencies left in the UK.

Not long ago, a few months ago, even a few weeks ago, it was possible to think that the Labour Party might become the largest party in the House of Commons after the next general election. I do not think that that is at all likely now.

The Conservative Party can only get a majority in the Commons if Labour is unpopular. That binary choice —Conservative/Labour— was axiomatically the way things were in past decades. The three-party and four-party politics (if the SNP is included, five-party politics) of the past 10-20 years altered that binary, but have not replaced it.

If Brexit Party, or the LibDems, or any other party, could get above (about) 25% of the popular vote, then whichever party did that would reach the FPTP tipping-point and would have a large bloc in the Commons. Below that imprecise level, and the party concerned either gets no MPs or a handful, depending on the degree of concentration of votes in particular constituencies rather than across the board. The Germans, as always, have a word for such concentration, the Schwerpunkt. In 2015, UKIP had no Schwerpunkt anywhere, “only” 12.6% of the popular vote. Result: only 1 MP.

The record low vote-share registered for a successful candidate in a Westminster election was that achieved by Alasdair McDonnell of the SDLP at Belfast South in 2015: 24.5%. That illustrates rather well the problem faced by non-main parties. The Green Party has only ever had one MP, Caroline Lucas. She was elected for Brighton Pavilion in 2010 on a vote-share of 31.9%. The national vote for Green Party was below 1%. In fact, at the General Election 2017, the Green Party still got only 1.6% (a decline from the 3.6% won in 2015), but Caroline Green’s own 2017 vote went up to 52.3%. In 2005, the Green Party candidate at Brighton Pavilion got a 21.9% vote but that was not enough to win (he came in 3rd).

Leaving aside unusual circumstances, exceptional candidates, fairly equal 3-way or 4-way splits in a constituency etc, a party needs about 25% or more  across the board to succeed. The recent polls (meaning those taken since Boris Johnson became leader of his party) all put the Conservatives well ahead of Labour, in one or two cases 11 points ahead. Not that voters generally like Johnson, but even fewer rate Jeremy Corbyn.

Corbyn not only scores below Johnson on every indicator (except “is he ‘caring’?”), but Corbyn, as “potential Prime Minister”, scores even below the LibDem leader, Jo Swinson! JO SWINSON! What can one say? Yes, of course the Jew-Zionist termites in the msm have trashed Corbyn for 4 years, but that is not the whole story. The anti-Corbyn propaganda has been able to hugely amplify Corbyn’s real deficiencies.

Labour is now a point or two behind, not the Conservatives (they are, incredibly, miles ahead of Labour) but the LibDems! The figures differ slightly, but tell similar stories. The most significant fact of all, though, is not that the Conservatives are ahead of Labour, nor that the LibDems are ahead of Labour (the latest poll, from DeltapollUK, in fact has Labour ahead of the LibDems) but that both are below that 25% Rubicon (Con 35%, Lab 24%, LibDem 18%, Brexit Party 14%).

The above poll would, even without any Con-Brexit Party electoral pact, give the Conservatives a Commons majority of somewhere in the region of 124. If that were to happen, there could, somewhere down the line, be actual civil war breaking out, bearing in mind the kind of policies the Cons would implement, e.g. getting rid of State pensions for the under-75s (the first State old age pension brought in by Lloyd George in 1911 was from 70 years of age).

As I have blogged previously, the Labour Party is now, at core, the party for the ethnic minorities, the NHS and other public service workers, and those dependent on State benefits (excluding pensioners). That is why it struggles to get beyond 30% in elections (eg the recent Peterborough by-election).

The Labour Party, at this time of national importance, is almost invisible. I do not entirely blame Corbyn. The previous ZOG/NWO “Labour” governments of Blair and Brown betrayed the (white, esp. English, Welsh) British people in various ways. Corbyn-Labour has tried to reconnect, but how can it when Labour puts up deadheads such as Kate Osamor and Fiona Onasanya as MPs? How can it, when Corbyn expresses support for Irish tinker “traveller” riff-raff and “Roma” thieves and scavengers?

This is not just me talking. Look at those polls, such as the Survation graphic at top of this blog article. Boris Johnson, Conservative Party leader, a part-Jew, of cosmopolitan origins, who attended Eton and Oxford, where he even belonged to the Bullingdon Club, scores better than Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on “does he have the common touch?”! You really could not make it up.

It pains me to have to say it, because Corbyn is at least anti-Zionist (though cringingly half-heartedly when it comes to the Jewish lobby in the UK and France), but I think that Labour is unsalvageable now, whether under Corbyn or not.

Labour is “socialist” now, at least more than at any time since 1997 or even 1992, but that is not enough. It is not “national” in the sense of “nationalist” (neither is the Conservative Party, but Johnson pretends to be, sometimes). What the voters really, unconsciously, want is social nationalism, but there is no party offering that in an acceptable way, and no major party offering it at all. Hence voter apathy.

Can Labour do anything to salvage what might be a general election as soon as November or even October? It could. Whether it will, who knows? My points:

  • If Labour really hit hard on how the Conservatives intend to attack pensioners via sharp and swift increases in pensionable age, via cuts to old age care, via other cuts to pensioners’ incomes;
  • If Labour really went all out to save its white English vote;
  • If Labour made, harder, the points where it has voter support: railways, old age care, utilities; NHS funding, education;
  • If Labour really went into all-out attack on the Jewish Lobby, especially in terms of msm coverage of Labour itself, but also in terms of attacking exploitation of British workers by horrible predators such as Philip Green;
  • If Corbyn stops being or seeming invisible and inaudible.

I have no confidence that Labour can do any of the above effectively. It is in a ghetto of blacks, browns, NHS employees, and people reliant on State benefits. However, these are its core support areas. If it is thought to have abandoned them, Labour might well do even worse.

Brexit Party is proving to be a damp squib so far. It too is not social-national, in fact it is the mirror image of Labour— “national” without being “socialist”…

Brexit Party is now languishing in the polls, around 15%. Good for a “new” party (really the UKIP snake without its old skin), but unless BP can get voter support somewhere well above 20% soon, it will sink the way UKIP did.

Polls usually narrow before Election Day. If they do not, we could be looking at a very solid Conservative Party majority and so a government which, even in advance, is making some of its own MPs uneasy… However, if Labour can somehow recover from 21%-24% to somewhere around 30%, then we may be back to more or less where we are today, a minority Conservative government.

There is an outside chance that, from the desperation of the 30% of eligible voters who do not vote, there might come a surprise anti-Conservative upsurge at the last minute.

Even former Labour Party candidates have not only abandoned Labour but are looking not unkindly upon “one nation” traditional Conservatism!

Meanwhile… a fine example of the Westminster Bubble: a few thousand (thousands, or hundreds?) of demonstrators make noise around the Palace of Westminster, achieve nothing, change nothing, but go home with the delusionary warm feeling that they have…and ITV News reports on it as if at the Storming of the Bastille!

These people would, most of them, never throw a stone, let alone a Molotov Cocktail, and they think that they will rattle what is now a near-tyrannical Boris-Idiot government? They will not even rattle the windows of the nearest Waitrose cafe!

Look again at that tweet, above, by one Paul Brand of ITV [nb: since posting of this article, apparently deleted]: “Traffic has been brought to a standstill.” No! Traffic brought to a standstill? At one roundabout in Central London? Call out the Preobrazhensky and Izmailovsky Guards! Notify the Tsar!

More. Here is Katie Hopkins, making a good point about how unrepresentative the Remain side is, though her point about the ethnic minorities could be made equally in relation to the Leave side. Also few blacks and browns. That, in a way, is why the international conspiracy (NWO/ZOG) is encouraging mass invasion of white Europe by blacks and browns (The Great Replacement), because most of the ethnic minorities cannot organize and will not stand up for what we have known as civil rights and freedoms.

Of course, Ms. Hopkins supports Israel, so naturally supports Boris-Idiot…

  1. People like Phillip Hammond or David Gauke should resign as official Tories and either become independent Tories or even cross the floor and become Lib Dem MPs. Phillip Hammond in particular may well be able to hold onto his seat in Surrey as a Lib Dem because it is full of affluent Remainers in very well-to-do private estates like Wentworth and St George’s Hill.

    The common little ‘rootless cosmopolitan’ petty tyrant called Alexander Boris De Pfeffel Johnson won’t be so cocky then!

    The latest outrage is the news that The Right Dishonourable member for Surrey Heath or, as he may as well be, the Likud Member forTel Aviv West, Michael Gove, now wants to by pass all constitutional precedence entirely and just ignore any law passed soon by MPs opposed to No Deal.

        Indeed you are right about the BP’s lack of policies but them when consider the fact you have a party with IRA-supporting ‘former’ Communists like their MEP Claire Fox and some people from UKIP and the Tory Party in it how do you unite them around a coherent programme without serious splits emerging?

        I agree about your last point. A globalist/New World Order/overtly libertarian Brexit is a nonsense. The only kind of Brexit that makes any sense is a nationalist/‘Red, White and Blue’/Britain First one.

Minds thinking alike? The obvious label? Maybe Paxman just reads my blog posts!).

        As my blog post notes, the problem —so far— in democratically restraining Boris-Idiot, aka Boris the Tyrant, and the “Conservatives”, is that all other parties are scoring below 25% in the opinion polls. That means that they will score relatively few seats. In other words, Boris might just win by default, unless the public mood shifts and the polling narrows.

        So what if there is a hard border? There is, after all, NOT JUST ONE country on that island but a part of another as well. The government should be prepared to nuke the USA if they stick their effing noses into that issue AGAIN as they think they have a god-given right to do!

Sweden is fortunate in that it never joined the Euro which is a very large obstacle to overcome if you wish to pull out.

        If the EU was just a defense/foreign affairs kind of union it might well make some sense for Britain to be a part of it but to my mind the economic aspects especially the single market with its requirement for complete freedom of movement that due to our language being so widely-spoken and thus acting as a huge magnet to this country means that the EU isn’t well-suited to this country.

It really is time ‘Eurosceptic’ Tory backbenchers like Jacob Rees-Mogg stopped their weird fetish for total ‘free trade’ with the likes of Vietnam. I can tell him straight that the vast bulk of people who voted to leave the EU were not doing so because they had this Libertarian/old 19th Century LIBERAL PARTY obsession with free trade deals with ultra-cheap labour countries like Vietnam.

        The primary motivation was taking back control of our laws and our borders so any revised ‘deal’ with the EU will have to acknowledge this.

        Mrs Thatcher should never have signed that Single European Act that created the Single Market or at least gave us a referendum on it. I know she was personally very opposed to referendums and was wise to be so in most circumstances but that act did put us very deeply into the EEC and due to our highly unrepresentative electoral system of First Past The Post we couldn’t make our feelings known about that act.

        30% of UK food comes from the EU but any post-Brexit problems with that will be logistical and short-term, imo. If the Government were not so incompetent, those problems would be slight.

They couldn’t vote Labour or Liberal Democrat as both supported it and the Tories under Major did too. The strong tendency of First Past The Post to crush the representation of real political diversity where it matters most ie in the House of Commons meant that people who were against it had no electorally significant party to speak up for them.

        If German voters had opposed it and the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party had been around then CDU/CSU voting Eurosceptics and others could easily have switched their votes to the AfD AND had that support translated into AfD Bundestag members and local councillors because of Germany’s very fair Mixed-Member Proportional Representation voting system.

From what I have read and heard about him, he is strongly opposed to abortion no doubt that is because he is a ‘left footer’ ie a Roman Catholic and that stance would certainly mark him out as a true, traditional ‘Right-wing’ Tory, he was against gays being allowed to obtain a civil marriage and still is apparently but he is a liberal on immigration/race matters. His beliefs on economics are sadly very Thatcherite/libertarian and therefore not very balanced.

        I don’t know what his view on capital punishment is but then Enoch Powell who appeared to many of the public as a traditional Tory and was in many respects was opposed. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Jacob was opposed and if he is then his stance would come from a libertarian belief that the state shouldn’t have that much power.

        His views on the EU seem to stem from his Thatcherite libertarianism as do the views of most Tories ie this US Republican obsession they have with ‘shrinking the state’ rather than a traditional and more sensible Tory viewpoint of defending our national sovereignty from a pro-nation state perspective.

Another reason for Labour to put as much time between now and the GE as possible. That will also provide Boris-Idiot with plenty of rope with which to hang himself. His supposed popularity (mostly an msm mirage anyway) will decline the more he tries to deal with concrete problems by clowning, showing off his superficial erudition in the classics, and cracking pathetic jokes.

      Labour’s main problem is not that Boris-Idiot is popular (he really isn’t) but that Labour is very certainly not popular. Labour needs to get above 30% in those opinion polls and do the same at the GE. 25% does not cut it. 30% is marginally OK. 35% would be better for Labour but I very much doubt, as things stand, that Labour can get to 35% now. If the Conservatives can stay above 30%, with Labour only around 25%, then the Cons will get at least a small but solid majority unless either LibDems or Brexit Party can get well beyond 25%, which seems unlikely. A couple of percentage points in the Con or Lab results could mean the difference between a Con majority (maybe in double figures) and a hung Parliament.

      3. ps. I saw a few minutes of Countryfile on BBC TV this morning. Some bloody woman from Shropshire, who obviously has nothing to do but make jam and listen to Radio 4 (I think that Radio 4 will soon be a world first— a radio station with no listeners). That woman heard a report about a Syrian woman whose family were stuck in the war there. Her solution? Agitate for Syrians to come to live in Shropshire! Apparently there are now 20 families of them in Oswestry alone!

        The BBC helpfully presented a couple of the more presentable ones (of course) to the TV public…The woman was asked whether she had had any negative reactions. She said that she had (but had ignored them; should we call that the “Greta Thunberg Manoeuvre”?). Needless to say, this obsessed woman lived on some rural outpost far from the areas where the migrant-invaders she had invited to Shropshire lived (the “Lily Allen Effect”? Maybe “the Yvette Cooper Effect”). So that’s 20 council houses now unavailable for needy British families, about 100 more people in the line for NHS services, school places etc…

  34. It is highly embarrassing and shameful that we have people like Sajid Javid misruling us. In an ideal world, Sajid would be living a few decades ago under the beneficial British Raj in Pakistan, bent to the knee and shining some Englishman’s shoes. That is the true level of him and Pakistanis!

    I can well understand your point about Deutsche Bank being unwise enough to employ people like him. I would love to know what ruse he and other Cabinet members intend to use to avoid asking for an extension because as far as I can see they either have to conclude a deal or follow the law and ask for that extension.

    If they truely do intend to break the law of the land then they must face the consequences ie having policemen come into the House of Commons, arrest them, charge them and put them in court.

    In a supposed parliamentary democracy, NO ONE is above the law and that includes cabinet ministers and the PM.

    1. We come back to basic character, particularly that of Boris Johnson. What is the clown’s character, beyond that of being a clown? I have said before that he is not the strong maverick he pretends to be, but weak. He has shown weakness time and again, disguised by bluster and his physical size.

      The other, perhaps contradictory element in the Boris make-up is that of the gambler or, better, chancer.

      Putting the two together, either he will cave in, taking the line of least resistance, or will chance something outrageous. Probably the latter, unless he is offered a peerage (covertly) to resign.

      Cummings is still at the centre of it all. *His* instinct is probably to gamble, and Boris seems to be deferring to him (God knows why). If Boris breaks this new law and if then he suffers some penalty (such as a month in prison…where? In the Tower?!) he can pose as “Brexit martyr” for the mob.

      Still, a British Prime Minister in prison! I am not sure that that the political system could survive that, though in other countries heads of government have suffered incarceration: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_heads_of_government_who_were_later_imprisoned

      That would rebound though. Boris-Idiot might win a majority after that, if Brexit happened as a result (and total chaos failed to happen).
