Nationalism, Racism, Xenophobia, Homophobia, Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia

Nationalism, Racism, Xenophobia, Homophobia, Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia

I do believe that rather than walking away from certain issues we must confront them head on and have clear stances on every one of them. We are plagued by our own inconsistencies and lack of clarity. Official statements must clearly indicate what we stand for and our behaviour and attitudes must be at all times consistent with official statements.

In order to widen their appeal and attract more support, many nationalists have committed a mortal sin: they have failed to come to terms with their own views and their own attitudes. Rather than publicly stating what they truly believe they have hidden their beliefs acting very much like the political correct society that they constantly criticize.

Unfortunately, such strategy has been totally counter-productive and many decades after the formation of nationalist organisations, the said organisations have practically no role in British politics other than acting as marginal organisations and being used as scapegoats that are constantly demonised by other political organisations, social organisations and the mass media.

There are about 650 seats in the House of Commons and more than 20,000 council seats across the country and so called nationalist organisations have no representatives in the House of Commons and have no control of any local or regional authority. When we get second place in any election, the feat is celebrated as brilliant success but in fact it is no more than the confirmation that we have no power whatsoever because in order to implement any policies you must not only be represented. You must have a considerable number of seats to actually be able to deliver what we promise.
