Strange place Sweden. At one time the country a beacon of progressive harmony, today a nation destroying itself on the altar of multicultural chaos. The attitude of Church and state to Christianity has drastically altered in recent years.


It is a long time since the Church of Sweden was a strong and stern state church. Swedes were born into it and, until 1951, were not allowed to leave. Today, however, according to the World Values Survey Sweden is one of the world’s most secular countries and its state church has little to do with Christianity or Jesus.  Continue reading “SWEDEN ABANDONS ITS BEARINGS”



The Saturday video, with script below.



What happens when a culture rejects its underlying principles? When any structure loses its foundations it crumbles and falls. Western civilisation is rejecting its foundations and we are beginning to see the results.

The West was built on Christian principles. Not everyone consistently held to biblical principles, but our history, our laws, our way of living together all emerged from Christianity. Progressives think they are all grown up and don’t need Christianity, yet we find they don’t have a viable structure to replace Christianity, and the chaos is beginning to emerge.

The latest piece from The Conservative Woman comparing austerity then and now.


Austerity, like beauty, lies in the eye of the beholder. Politicians and emoting celebrities assure us that we are living in a time of vicious austerity. The Poverty and Exclusion website of the Economic and Social Research Council declares that ‘we are paralysed by what is probably the biggest single issue affecting ordinary people in the country: austerity’.

At one time people said what they meant, and those hearing it responded appropriately. It was usual for individuals and even corporate entities to be somewhat forthright in their expression, particularly of local pride.

Our nearest town is Falkirk in Central Scotland. Falkirk FC, a local football team, is known by the nickname the ‘Bairns’. This is not because they play like children but because of the town motto, the gloriously direct, ‘Better meddle wi’ the De’il than the Bairns of Falkirk’. This can be translated into modern Scots as roughly. ‘Mess wi’ folk frae Falkirk and we’ll gie ye a right doin’.

Whilst this may lack the cultural value of the biblical mottoes of Edinburgh and Glasgow, or the pretensions of the Latin used by many other towns it makes up for it in directness. Falkirk was a town known for its iron and engineering industries. It was composed of plain people who got things done. Plain speaking is something valued by plain people.

Unfortunately, today we seem to fear people actually saying what they mean, especially if it includes expressing pride in one’s locality, people or nation.

Words which incite to violence should be regulated. The latest batch of letters sent to Muslims in the North East of England naming 3rd April as ‘Punish a Muslim Day’ is abhorrent and the perpetrators must be apprehended and punished.

But there is a world of difference between awarding points for acts of violence – from 25 points for removing a woman’s headscarf to 500 points for murdering a Muslim, and expressing concern about the future of Western culture and civilisation.

The establishment appears terrified by expressions of pride in or defence of Western culture. At the end of last week, Austrian Martin Sellner and his American fiance Brittany Pettibone were detained at Luton airport and denied entry to the United Kingdom. Both are Identitarians. The Identitarian movement is a hotchpotch of right-wing European hipster movements, archeofuturists who attempt to marry archaic values with futurist technology, and traditionalists.

Pettibone and Sellner

Like Antonio Gramsci, identitarians hold that any change to society is impossible as long as its culture and language remain unchanged. Unlike Gramsci they don’t wish to see the culture of the West change and, therefore, argue to keep Europe as it is culturally as well as politically.

Laura Southern

The Canadian Christian Conservative Lauren Southern has recently made a series of YouTube videos on the threats faced by white farmers in South Africa. Southern has been detained in Calais on the grounds of racism in order to prevent her from entering the UK.

It is easy to dismiss the Identitarians as conspiracy theorists inhabiting the political fringes We can ignore Southern as someone with a bee in her bonnet. So what?

The danger lies in the ever growing limitations on free speech. Banning people from entry to the country for what they might possibly say is not only unBritish it gives rise to the very things the establishment wishes to prevent.

At one time Speakers Corner in Hyde Park was the somewhat eccentric pride of Britain. Gathered there on a Sunday anyone could say anything they wished. Marx and Lenin, Bernard Shaw and George Orwell, Marcus Garvey and Winston Churchill have all unburdened themselves there. It was a matter of pride in Britain that anyone could say what they wanted, and be met by robust reply.

If there is something with which you disagree meet it with vigorous counter-argument. Banning speech does not stop it, it only drives it underground. There it festers in resentment and eventually emerges in the hate mail being spewed out concerning a supposed ‘Punish a Muslim Day’.

Meanwhile, despite the return of about 350 fighters from Islamic State, a key terrorism power intended to control British jihadists has been rarely used. These jihadi’s have effectively renounced British citizenship and enlisted in the armed forces of a foreign entity dedicated to the overthrow of the United Kingdom and the West. Amber Rudd, the same Home Secretary who bans people for what they might possibly say, cannot stop people who have participated in armed rebellion to re-enter the country.


By Request

I have had a number of requests to resume blogging, and people signing up to subscribe to the blog even although nothing has been posted here for nearly eighteen months. Looking at the stats for the blog there are a significant number of hits each day, which quite frankly amazes me.

What I plan to do is post links to my articles in The Conservative Woman and post a new short YouTube video each Saturday. Plus, I might throw in anything else which takes my fancy.



My first offering is today’s post on TCW where I compare and contrast the economic and political fortunes of Chile and Venezuela.


There is also a video on the mess the governments of Western Europe have created through the mass immigration Ponzi scheme and the underlying causes.



In the British sit com Dad’s Army Private Fraser, the gloomy Scottish undertaker, has a catch phrase, ‘We’re doomed’.

‘We’re doomed I tell ye. We’re all doomed’

It is easy to despair and think that we are doomed and that progressives have taken over the Western world.

Our media is painfully politically correct and relentlessly pushes a progressive agenda. If politicians utter a word out of line they are quickly brought to heel by a braying Twitter mob. When students demand safe spaces and trigger warnings and university authorities hasten to appease them it’s apparent our universities have become havens of progressivism.

Does this mean that progressivism has won the day? Not necessarily. If you succeed in shutting down public debate it could mean that you have won. It could also mean that you are well on the way to losing. Continue reading “ARE WE DOOMED?”
