In recent weeks The Westminster Wing has been trawling through various forms of social media to gauge the public mood on the current progress of Brexit negotiations between the government and the EU. We were not surprised to find such high levels dissatisfaction with not only both teams of negotiators, but also the broadcast and printed

Brexit’s most iconic image

media’s standard of reportage.

What did surprise us though was the volume of leave supporters calling for some kind of positive action, protests and even a desire to bring the country to a standstill with blockades similar to the fuel protest in 2000.

Though protests are a favourite strategy for the far-left, particularly prevalent since Corbyn became Labour leader, they are a rarity on the right.

There are many explanations as to why right of centre supporters and activists don’t do mass public protests, many are obvious and a few are not so obvious!

Political protesting by “socialists” has existed for centuries, long before the word even existed. Usually inspired by terrible working practices imposed by mill, mine or factory owners, or chronic housing conditions. Workers became organised through trade unions leading to the formation of the Labour party. Encouraged by historical victories, socialists have never forgotten the power of protest.

Socialists like a protest

Those early marches and protests throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, some of them violent, were just and necessary, few would argue otherwise. Those times were tough and there was little else those affected could do without a voice in parliament.

But today’s left wing protesters have forgotten a very important component of popular protest: “just cause”! Demonstrating against a visit by an American President or in protest of a page depicting topless models can hardly be seen as a class struggle! Modern socialists are largely comprised of middle class students, well paid public sector professionals or supporters of Middle East terrorism. They are as far away from their original cause as it is possible to get.

The left still possess the ability to muster large numbers of protesters on the streets through their well-funded unions and affiliated groups. Bussing hundreds, sometimes thousands of people around the country complete with sponsored “Unite the Union” placards and £25 cash in hand to buy a Starbucks coffee or a Pret a Manger falafel sandwich whilst uploading images of the events on their latest iPhone is a common occurrence should their dear leader deem it necessary.

Comprised mostly of under worked students, strikers and the unemployed, it’s unlikely they will pass on the call to march due to heavy work commitments at the office! And this brings us neatly to the near non-existent will to protest by those on the right of centre politics.

With little or no history in organising mass demonstrations, chiefly because of a lack of cause, organisational machinery and work or family commitments, the likelihood of witnessing a demonstration by Tory supporting members of the public is lower than finding a pulled pork sandwich in Finsbury Park Mosque! Ordinary Tory supporters simply have better things to do with their time and view those who do public outrage on the streets as “not our sort of people”! Rightly or wrongly this is the current state of affairs.

Given the above brief summary of the history of popular protest, it would be a mistake to assume it is solely supporters on the right that are exhibiting growing unrest with Theresa May’s Brexit divorce proceedings. Our analysis of 51 social media groups, comprising some 400, 000 members and contributors reveals a very eclectic mix of socioeconomic groups, race and genders displaying a desire for open revolt against the government’s lack of assertiveness with the EU and increasing anger at the suggestion of a protracted transition to the exit door.

Our analysis leads us to believe a substantial segment of leave supporters are close to tipping point! These groups are repositories for frustrated, disgruntled, mostly ordinary citizens who feel their concerns and views are being ignored by the media and politicians, they are a disenfranchised majority, not dissimilar to those voiceless souls of the 18th and 19th centuries and are not too far away from organising a collective protest of significant proportions.

Any government that ignores these people is destined to experience the wrath of mass dissatisfaction and with it, the political disruption many insensitive administrations faced over the last 200 years.

The primary duty of all governments is to protect the nation and its people. What it protects us from is rather vague. I pose the question; what constitutes a threat to our wellbeing, our national security, our culture and our very lives?

Clearly the government decides this. Therefore they can pick and choose whatever they decide to be responsible for. It goes without saying therefore, that, should they fail to protect us – and let’s face it, there is no more clear example than Monday’s tragic terror attack in Manchester – then the government and it’s liberal agencies try to shame anyone who doesn’t accept their “carry on regardless” directive by accusing those who demand action against the perpetrators as right wing extremists and racists! And yes, that even includes, traumatised parents.

From chief constables to the BBC, metro mayors and celebrity luvvies, we receive lecture after sickening lecture, warning us to refrain from any thoughts of disgust, fear or anger. We must go about our state sponsored lives and keep our mouths shut! Furthermore, we must fawn over our politically correct police and NHS operatives, who have taken time off from arresting people for posting offensive tweets, or striking for more pay and less working hours!

God forbid if any self respecting journalists or worthless pleb should ask the government why these tragedies occur. Or worse, demand to know why every terrorist attack is carried out by radical muslims who appear on national security danger lists around the civilised the world! juncker-hollande-merkel

Throughout my years of covering such inhumane acts of terrorism and depravity, never have I felt so impotent and devoid of creative nuances! I cannot summon a single elegant or cutting phrase to elevate this commentary! I’m simply worn down by the complacency and ineffectiveness of modern liberal governments, outsourcing their responsibilities to what I can only describe as media apologists and celebrity virtue signallers.

I have consequently concluded that due to years of enforced multiculturalism, diversity or uncontrolled third world immigration, lack of planning for infrastructure and expansion of public services, which causes as much anger and depravity for immigrants and the indigenous population in equal measure, we must firmly lay the blame for every future atrocious act of terror-related, depraved mass murder – whichever side of the political or religious spectrum it comes from – at the feet of our elected and unelected politicians and the European governments they form.
