Hooray, a party for those upset at being told off for spouting bigoted or racist views, those angry that the BBC is not more right wing, conspiracy theorists wanting a platform and those afraid that "the other sort" are taking over.

In fairness, as with Nige and Stephen Yaxley-Leggit, if the egos from all stratas of the racism in this country start splintering and trying to be the leader it may well quell and break them. There's no way these stunted fragile little men won't fight amongst each other and take their people with them.

Hopefully it will take their votes off into the ether.

Unfortunately, it is likely to spook the Conservative leadership into steering harder right to keep them on board.

It makes no sense to go legit unless it's for self-promotion.
Everyone hates everbody else so you only have to make yourself less hated to gain power. Fox has no chance.
Disinformation on the internet about 'Them' is much more effective and you don't need to reveal your identity.

'Twas always the way back in the '70s and '80s, part of the reason the NF failed. Everyone wants to be Fuhrer.

Mind you, also true on the hard left, as well.

Not saying that the likes of Fox and Farage are nazis, but this reminds me of an interview I saw with a Hope Not Hate researcher a few years ago. When he was asked why the far right always fails, he said "It's because they all want to be the fuhrer"

Not so much spook but let them exploit at a later date. After Brexit, this cancel culture/political correctness gone mad/you couldn’t make it up (but you did) fantasy gives them a “feels not reals” reservoir to tap into.

Unfortunately Labour will weakly engage on the same lines to “neutralise” the war. But they’ll just be confirming the narrative.

Imagine an opposition party who could embrace the “feels AND reals” of huge swathes of the population that are marginalised and exposed by what is actually happening in the UK and the world?

Good luck to the chap.

Who now remembers the Duke of Granby or Lord Palmeston.... and all those other pubs, now closed ?

What about the Empire, which changed into a bingo hall where once Jim Davidson entertained in his latter years ?

Now knocked down (though whether the two are connected is not known and replaced by a German supermarket (the building, not Jim).

We need to remember all the fallen in far off places who died that so many (few ?) could enjoy inherited wealth still.

Ein Joke, ein (far) right, ein further (away from reality).

On a related note, the recently launched GB News fronted by the Brillo-topped embodiment of the status quo Andrew Neil, will be targeting those who are “underserved and unheard by their media” ...

There’s seemingly no end (and no shame or self-awareness either) to the often privileged white men who need to present themselves as the victim.

Trumpian levels of delusion.

The insurmountable problem for anybody coming at this from a practical - rather than rabble-rousing - angle is that there is no genuine solution. The trade, mines and factories will not be resurrected, the steady massed jobs (if not actual prosperity) unlikely ever to return to the North of England, South Wales, Central Scotland, etc.

The best which can be offered are inadequate initiatives more slogan than investment, resulting in a small quantity of low-paid warehouse and call-centre employment. Hardly satisfying, especially when popular culture trumpets the wealth of the South East, or booming (London overspill) Manchester.

In the 1850s, their ancestors clambered on the newly arrived trains and left the impoverished countryside for lucrative industrial employment. Now there isn't really any boom for these people to flee to.

There is an option - one which embraces the future, not looks back to the past.

The UK is currently going to waste hundreds of billions on a project that is already an almost obsolete white elephant, before it has barely begun - HS2.

The idea of moving workers to 'places' of work is already being replaced by the requirement of moving data to where it can be used/needed. Money for that is where investment should be aimed, not on some 'relic' from the past.

Much of the work of doctors, teachers, university lecturers, trainers, solicitors etc no longer needs them to physically meet those requiring their services. Relocating to areas of less intensive and costly housing will enable those areas to begin to flourish.

This can only be done when we recognise that super fast broadband should be seen as a necessary utility to every house, workplace.... just as water, electricity/gas, sewage and telephone now are.

Unfortunately we currently have the most inept government in living memory. One which cannot see beyond the next sound bite or u-turn guided by a man (Cummings) who believes the best way to fatten a pig is to keep weighing it.

The country is fast falling behind others in so many ways. as the thieves concentrate on how to divvy up what remains, rather than progress the country so as to create long term wealth.
