"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

The Harrogate Agenda

Check out Niall Warry, once the 'National Office Manager' for UKIP.  The Harrogate Agenda is nothing more than an outlet for vested interests and those who swing whichever way the wind blows.  I may have dreamed it but I'm sure I saw a vision of Richard North holding sway over a round table of favoured acolytes.

Just like 'Referism', the Harrogate Agenda has been overtaken by egos.  It's clear to me that the only protest party that gets results is feet on the street: missiles hurled, confrontation with the police.  Distasteful as that is, I think we've reached a point where nipping off to the kitchen to make a cup of tea is no longer an option.

Get out of the kitchen, face up to your responsibilities. No-one will come.


  1. Totally agree, as you say we need feet on the streets, not backsides on seats.

  2. We're too fragmented. I wouldn't object to demonstrating but the thought that I'd end up marching alongside some aggressive SWP/UAF banner-waving, hate-chanting prat puts me off. Everyone seems to have a gripe these days but the left are still the only ones who refer to themselves as 'activists' though I suppose, at a pinch, the EDL could also lay claim. The centre-right have never been any good at organising protests - they've never had to because once they were the majority and it was taken for granted that that's what England was. Not so anymore, alas.
