UK Con Leadership Battle: Britons Never, Never, Never Shall Thee Be

Kemi Badenoch, daughter of Nigerian immigrants and the most anti-‘woke’ candidate in this year’s Conservative leadership election

THE POLITICAL CIRCUS OF modern UK Conservatism has pitched its tent in the full glare of media attention. Racial nationalists and (more broadly) traditional patriots are looking on in despair.

On 7th July Boris Johnson – despite having won a landslide majority in December 2019 to deliver Brexit (and for better or worse, having largely succeeded in doing so) was forced to resign. His departure will be delayed until election of a successor.

The afternoon of this writing, there were no fewer than twelve candidates either declared or on the point of declaring. (Within the last hour this was reduced to eight.)

And the most striking aspect is that the most traditionalist, anti-“woke” candidates are from ethnic minorities.

Suella Braverman and husband Rael Braverman

Suella Braverman, whose parents were ethnic Indians (partly Goan) arriving in the UK from Africa in the 1960s, is presently Attorney General. Three years ago she attracted criticism from left-wing and Jewish lobbies after daring to state that her party was committed to “a battle against cultural Marxism”, though nothing she has said or written suggests that she has any advanced understanding of what this term means.

When announcing her leadership bid a few days ago, Braverman told an interviewer: “We need to get rid of all this woke rubbish.”

Meanwhile Kemi Badenoch (see image at top of this article), who until last week was “Equalities Minister” in Johnson’s government, launched her campaign with an article in The Times that focused heavily on anti-“woke” arguments.

Badenoch, daughter of Nigerian immigrants, wrote:

Our country is falsely criticised as oppressive to minorities and immoral, because it enforces its own borders. We cannot maintain a cohesive nation state with the zero-sum identity politics we see today.

Exemplified by coercive control, the imposition of views, the shutting down of debate, the end of due process, identity politics is not about tolerance or individual rights but the very opposite of our crucial and enduring British values.

What is truly pathetic about this leadership contest so far is that so-called “right-wing” conservatives are hiding behind the skirts of Black women, apparently in the belief that in 2022 any opinions that might remotely be described as “racist” can only be expressed via a non-White spokeswoman.

Thus the Conservative Party leadership contest has become almost like the multiracial dystopian vision of London depicted in the series Gangs of London.

Ethnic backgrounds of the initial twelve declared or likely contenders included: a Nigerian (Kemi Badenoch); a Goanese Buddhist (Suella Braverman); a Pakistani Muslim (Rehman Chishti – dropped out) and an Pakistani apostate Muslim (Sajid Javid – dropped out); two Indian Hindus (Rishi Sunak – present favourite – and Priti Patel – dropped out); an Iraqi Kurd and apparently apostate Muslim (Nadhim Zahawi); a Jew (Grant Shapps – dropped out); and a semi-Jew (Tom Tugendhat).

Only three of the eight nominated or initial twelve potential candidates are of straightforwardly British or Irish background going back three generations or more: Jeremy Hunt, Liz Truss and Penny Mordaunt.

Some readers might be surprised that of the nine ‘ethnic’ candidates, only one was a practising Muslim, and he dropped out having come nowhere close to securing sufficient nominations. This is Gillingham MP and imam’s son Rehman Chishti, recently appointed to a junior post at the Foreign Office. Chishti took his oath of allegiance as an MP on the Koran, but also had copies of the Torah and the King James Bible placed on the despatch box during his swearing-in. Even such conspicuous devotion to multi-faith liberalism got him nowhere.

It’s down to two now, the Indian Rishi Sunak and the White Liz Truss. Everyone here knows that the Indian is going to win. The “Conservative” Party’s new motto will be “Two women and one non-White Prime Minister to nil!”, as, funnily enough, the left-wing Labour Party has had none of these yet. Now I know that it won’t make much difference, as they all serve the Jews and their anti-White, pro-degeneracy agenda, but the thought of a non-White Prime Minister disgusts me.

England….you could have kept your Empire, you could have kept your nation….but you sacrificed it all because you would not tolerate a little competition from your German cousins. So millions of Whites died for your arrogance, and now you shall be diluted out of existence on your own island.

We lost our empire because we we’re too intrigued by short term gains. W lost our empire because we became too obsessed with being “liberators of the world”. We lost our empire because we were too obsessed with fleeting glory in Europe. Much of this happened before my time. I can’t reverse it. All I can do, now, is ruin my country’s false legacy!

The Empire was lost before it was an empire, in 1488 with the Velvet Revolution, when the bankers replaced a Stuart with William of Orange. Then came the Bank of England, then came the British Navy, then came empire (for The Company, not the people) and then came destruction of the aristocracy, and it spiraled down after that. Interestingly, it was an ancestor of Churchill who made possible the installation of William, and it was Churchill who delivered Britain to the bankers in WWII. And he is revered today as the greatest Briton. A very good Briton, perhaps not the greatest but nevertheless great, was Enoch Powell, who spoke out against the tide but was not listened to.
