I saw this para by Simon Heffer in the DT today:

"I keep thinking of Matthew Arnold's phrase, in a much-quoted letter to Arthur Hugh Clough in a similarly dark and restive period in the 1840s, about "the absence of great natures, and unavoidable contact with millions of small ones". The great natures are certainly wanting; but it takes only a few in high places to have small ones to keep this country from its economic salvation, and to force through instead that ultimate betrayal. In the end, it will be up to us, as vocally as we can, to try to stop this. Happy new year; or, rather, bon courage!"

I think this is very important. It sums up better than any detail of policy disputes why I am disappointed in England. The "small ones" have taken over, and great people are hard to find in the nation or in government. From this insight, all concrete political views flow.

Back from beautiful Jersey where I can thoroughly recommend both hotels in which we stayed; The Moorings at Gorey and the five-sun (equivalent 5-star) Hotel L'Horizon.

A refreshing alternative to the so-called 'Family Christmas' with its endless rows and (allegedly)domestic murders.

Well I myself have been wondering if political idealism should not really be restricted to the under-40s? There comes a time in line when you know you will not alter the mainstream thrust of society, and in the little time you have left you should really forget about politics and just try to create a comfortable niche for yourself to live out your remaining time on the earth. The irony is that most of the under-40s claim to be repulsed by conservative views, but little do they realise that it is largely for them and for the future generations that conservatives have campaigned for a retention of a common culture, and not really for ourselves as such. Beyond a certain point, the appropriate response is to say "if you young'uns really do love a society with no common bonds, characterised by a fear of crime and of one's neighbours, and by an increasingly direct relationship between the individual and the state, then fine - get on with it". I don't society will reach a point in my lifetime at which it feels good about itself. I don't think it can ever be a society again in the true meaning of the word. But the time has come for me to regretfully accept that the way Britain is run is not going to change in my lifetime. I can either find a cosy niche somewhere in Britain's shores, and not watch the TV to read of the decline, or go elsewhere. That's all there is to it.

With the triumphant onward march to power of Davis Cameron's rejuvenated Conservative Party the important work of our group has finally come to an end. I thank all our loyal supporters who have backed us so generously over the years.

The Alliance’s assets have been distributed to Music and Armed Services charities with a further 500 donation to the Traditional Britain Group, headed by Gregory Lauder-Frost, who will provide a radical and thrusting alternative to the Alliance. You will be hearing from TBG very shortly.

This forum continues uninterrupted as the TBG forum, but I shall be taking a back seat and posting much less frequently from now.

WITH one-in-three television programmes now classed as overtly racist, a new channel is being launched to cater for a growing market of bigoted lunatics.

KLAN TV's flagship programme will be White Power Treehouse, a reality show featuring young female celebrities locked in a treehouse with a constant supply of wine boxes, sharing their thoughts on race, culture and social cohesion.

Big Brother's Jade Goody will present How to... Send Them Back, an interactive show devoted to viewers' light-hearted suggestions on how to repatriate thousands of elderly British citizens to their Commonwealth countries of origin.

Meanwhile Simone Clarke, the BNP-supporting ballerina, will host Strictly Anglo-Saxon Dancing, where celebrities will perform routines not influenced by the frenzied sexual jiggling of the sub-Saharan cultures.

Another early highlight will be the poignant, fly-on-the wall documentary The Boy Who Didn't Like the Bangladeshi Family Next Door.

One KLAN TV executive said: "We expect a diverse audience. On the one hand we'll have lots of moronic white thugs leaping around their living rooms, grunting and throwing ready meals at their knocked-off plasma screens; and on the other we'll have lots of outraged white liberals, fizzing in front of their Bang and Olufsens, choking on their Cloudy Bay and feeling really good about themselves. We're going to make fucking millions."
