Don't know if this relates to Obs question. The words are from a song by 'the man in a velvet suit' in the 1920's.

 

Wake up, John Bull. What's the matter with you?

Why don't you close your open doors,

the same as they do on foreign shores,

Don't leave it too late John,

Till you've found out their worth,

Or someday you'll find yourself,

Pushed right off this earth.

 

Happy days.

Very prophetic! :wink: If "the Bradford Spring" takes off, perhaps we can expect further examples of various "groups" in society, voting in their direct self interests; which should make it difficult for the main Parties trying to be all things to all men, and delivering to none! :wink:

It could have been the "fed up with the usual rubbish, lets vote for the only viable alternative" vote or, perhaps the more usual "constituency with a large immigrant population" postal (ahem) vote :wink: :wink: :wink:

:) Yet another naive assumption on your part: IE that all ethnic minorities share a common interest. There are religious differences for a start, plus the fact that having got on the life boat, many immigrants don't want anymore getting on board and capsizing it. As I said, when and IF the centre collaspes, folk will gravitate to both extremes. :wink:

When have they ever done what the majority of folk want? A bunch of professional political careerists, totally absorbed in trivial party point scoring in the ivory tower of Westminister and totally divorced from the general aspirations of the majority of people. Problem is, even with isolated examples like Bradford, enough sheep still flock to their support at election time. :roll: :roll:

People flock to them at election times as some of the other parties seem a little extreme! Hence Mr Griffin of the BNP, has been trying to make his party look a little less extreme, but most people see though it. A Neanderthal in a suit is still a Neanderthal. :wink:

Is that the best you can do Kije? Just name call - no reference to policies? Well Griffin and Co are more in tune with the majority on several issues, which the main parties totally ignore IE: Getting out of the EU,getting out of the ECHR, getting out of Afghanistan and cutting immigration. :roll:

Sorry Obs most people unlike yourself see them for what they are. They appeal to people who for the most part are uneducated, The people you take delight in calling on other threads on here. People who like to blame immigrants for taking jobs they would not do anyway or could not do as they have no education. The people who depend on government support.

 

It's a shame you cannot see!
