My Eurosceptic Strategy For The Coming British ‘Election’


The next phase of British politics is going to get messy, whoever ‘wins’ the election. There is a high chance of a serious rigging operation being put into place to keep Cameron out, even though without such a rigging of the poll, he would inevitably win a clear majority.

One seat where there will inevitably be a purposeful rigging effort put in place, will be Buckingham, where the ‘network’ will seriously want to keep Bercow secure, and Farage out. It will be a key seat to watch. If Farage is kept out, and people suspect foul play, for many, it will be a turning point – a moment when people will see that no matter what party they vote for, the totalitarian machine will march over all democratic attempts to stop its progress. (Stevens the new Independent in Buckingham already looks like a plant being used to muddy the clear waters of a Bercow-Farage confrontation.)

It is always an interesting point that Ken Clarke’s Rushforth seat was one of the top two for postal voting volume in 2005. The system knows full well which seats it wants protected. All the other big postal vote seats in 2005 were labour.

The byelections, most suspected of being rigged, by my estimates, were Sedgefield, when Blair retired. The BNP allege that their vote was kept down by ballot box tampering. They tallied the numbers entering polling booths and found that the number of votes at the count were substantially less than the number of people who voted on the day. Blair or his successor would clearly be on the ‘protected’ list.

Glenrothes East stands out also as a seat which was heavily affected by postal voting giving a surprising result. The register disappeared. Months later it reappeared blanked. Glasgow North East was another byelection where suspicion of the result hangs heavy.

Continual closer and closer opinion polling is being used to bend peoples’ expectations, so that a hung parliament will not be a surprise, or even a Labour victory. This is all evidence that the election is going to be rigged to keep Cameron out.

If the Conservatives fail to prevent a fourth term for Labour, however, many eurosceptics feel that this will crash Cameron’s leadership, and people like Richard North on Eureferendum even desire this outcome. If Cameron won’t fight the EU now, he needs replacing, is their approach. If he doesn’t offer a referendum on the EU, he doesn’t deserve to win. The trouble with this logic is that any party offering a referendum on the EU would not be allowed to win.

The same ‘ideal result’ calculations will be weighing with those who aspire to controlling the election result. (Ask yourself, ‘why be involved in rigging at all, unless you expect to control the outcome?’) If Cameron is seen to have lost the election, the Conservative Party will very likely swing to the ‘right’ once more, and quit the centre ground. In times gone by this would lead to loss of support, and a heavy savaging by the media.

But as jobs shrink and pay falls, and house prices edge lower, there will inevitably be more polarisation of opinion, and a strongly eurosceptic Conservative Party would attract support. Centre ground politics works in the good times. Once the economy hits the buffers, society more easily divides into its sections, and politics swings back into more confrontational form.

The ‘controllers’ will fear a Cameron defeat because this might accelerate the creation of an openly and activist anti-EU Conservative Party.

If Cameron wins with a small majority, however, he will be vulnerable as Major was to eurosceptic revolt. Twenty years on from Maastricht, eurosceptics are in the ascendant, and would likely win the next equivalent of a Maastricht battle. If the EU needs new treaties to deal with Greece, this would be a worry.

Cameron with a smallish majority might, on the other hand, put up a blistering fight with the EU on his own initiative, without the need for backbench revolt, and swing Conservative support and the minor parties ever more strongly behind him. This scenario would clearly worry the totalitarian election planners the most.

Clearly the scenario the controllers desire would be a situation where Conservatives stay loyal to Cameron, where he doesn’t win an outright majority, and he is embroiled with negotiations with the safely europhile Nick Clegg and Gordon Brown. In effect this would neutralise the threat of rebellion emanating in whatever form from a resurgent Conservative Party.

With the EU fearing the consequences of a Conservative defeat almost as much as it fears a Conservative victory, a hung parliament is likely the only outcome they would willingly permit. And for this reason, and this reason only, a Hung Parliament is the result that I expect.

That is why my proposed eurosceptic strategy is first to support Cameron, not to destroy his chances intentionally as suggested by Richard North. If his support is overwhelming to the point that election riggers cannot make a hung parliament look like a natural result, he might scrape a majority. That is still the best scenario for eurosceptics.

From there the eurosceptics can either back him in his EU negotiations, or sack him and have him replaced.

If there is a Hung Parliament, and Cameron is temporarily castrated by being forced to parley with Clegg and Brown, I would still stay loyal to Cameron in case a crisis forces another election, where he can seize power in a second election.

Only if he is unable to force such a crisis, and has clearly and undoubtedly betrayed eurosceptic trust beyond all question (which he has not done as yet) would I go for the palace revolution and his replacement from the back benches with a UKIP-type referendum-touting regime taking over the Conservative Party.

Whatever shape events take, eurosceptics would want Farage to win Buckingham.

And they should remember that Cameron would never have got to where he is had he been openly eurosceptic. He has to play both sides. At the very least europhiles and the BBC have to believe that he might be a sell-out, or he’d get the IDS treatment.

Lord Pearson imagines himself the only one not playing cricket. He can’t read the tea leaves at all. Apart from Farage, UKIP needs to be a bit more careful in this finely balanced, approaching political confrontation, in which, the little that is left of Britain’s democratic existence is entirely at stake.

    Cameron is influenced by Alinsky.

    Alinsky is a communist.

    If you think I am voting for a communist-influenced Cameron you are barking mad sunshine.

    You only tell people not to vote for UKIP becasue they didn’t want you as leader.

  2. tapestry says:

    Farrer – correct, thanks.

    Anon – And I guess all Conservatives are secret Marxists, right?

    I was temporarily miffed at Nigel Farage using my material in his book without accrediting its author, but I’ve got over it.

    Cameron as I say, has to play both sides. We don’t know until he gets there which is the feint.

    If he’s a phile, he’ll be seen off by the backbenchers. If he’s sceptic, we’ll be in clover.

    Me UKIP leader? Not even in my dreams. I admire Farage. I have some time for Batten. Obviously Lord Monckton. A few others. But the party is sadly riven at the top, and the originals won’t let more talented folk like Farage get at it.

    UKIP is a dead end.

  3. tapestry says:

    UKIP’s achieved much but unless the cabal that holds it in its grip is shifted and the party becomes a genuine democratic institution, and not a false democracy (like the EU), its path to anywhere is severely limited.

    Most of the achievements have been Farage’s and even he’s sick of dealing with all the party’s inner sickness.

    Maybe Monckton could do something. Pearson hasn’t got a clue.

  4. Robin says:

    How many people know about this vote rigging, and have you talked to the police about your concerns ?

    The article seems fuzzy in that you imply the powers that be that are hidden want the spiv Cameron to be EUrosceptic and EUrophile .

  5. tapestry says:

    The EU used to think they had the situation sewn up, but with the Euro unravelling, they are getting more desperate.

    The Euro was created in a wave of optimism caused by stratospheric stock market levels. When stock markets next turn down, the Euro will be blown away.

    Meantime they will rig anything they need to to try to stop their power unravelling.

    It will be like the Berlin Wall when it all finally goes. Fast and unexpected.

    I hope my post is clear, Robin. Cameron has positioned himself to benefit from a collapse of EU power. I don’t think he will seek to cause it directly, but neither will he be like Blair and Brown, doing all they can to share in it.

    He would offer a referendum if there are any new treaties which could be critical.

    Events will drive the political situation.

    Many people are aware of evidence of rigged byelections, but with evidence being removed, it is hard for the Police to play a part at this stage. Postal voting scams are hard to prove. ballot boxes should be stored with 24 hour security control. but who will the supervisors be?

  6. Twig says:

    @Tapestry
    “He would offer a referendum if there are any new treaties which could be critical.”

    Will the EU need any new treaties if The Lisbon Treaty is “self amending”.

  7. tapestry says:

    The situation in Greece was not catered for by the Lisbon Treaty. In the original Constitutional Treaty, the Council of Ministers could have enforced a bail-out by the other countries in the EU to rescue Greece etc.

    But in the Lisbon Treaty the same article appears without the ability to enforce a rescue. This can only be put into practice in a spirit of solidarity – in other words, it is optional for each member.

    With the decision of the German Court emphasising that Lisbon cannot be allowed to become in effect a self amending Treaty, the EU would be forced to go for further Treaties to obtain further powers.

    The Germans are also politically not in favour of any bail-outs. Both Merkel’s coalition partners are against.

    This really is an impasse. The recent supposed Greek bail-out was no such thing. The markets are still demanding the same interest rates as before.

  8. Robin says:

    How has the spiv Cameron positioned himself to benefit when the EU collapses ? Nothing he has said implies that he sees the EU falling, or that he wants it to fail . In fact, by not mentioning our fiscal contributions to this project, ensuring the money goes there even though cutbacks have to be made everywhere else, he shows he is either a coward or a supporter of the EU.

    As such are you going to give him your vote ?

  9. tapestry says:

    His post-Lisbon ratification speech indicated an intention to repatriate powers.

    Coward or a supporter of the EU? Not both, Robin? You’re slipping.

  10. Robin says:

    How is he going to repatriate powers, which ones and when ?

    How is he going to do that without a new treaty ?

  11. tapestry says:

    Help Labour back into power by voting UKIP and get instant total sell-out and loss of our freedom.

    Get Cameron in, and against a background of Euro disintegration and political polarisation between EU partners, he will build a position of independence.

    It is better to let events do most of the work. Timing of events is as you know not predictable, even when their inevitability is clear.

    He’s already created bis EU shopping list, including the social chapter and other specific powers.

  12. Robin says:

    So far events have taken their course and we are more inveighled into the EU than ever. The Tories help this along the way.

    Again, how is he going to repatriate these powers ?

  13. tapestry says:

    One way not to repatriate powers is to support the Liberal Democrats as Farage was doing on HIGN4Y. He was speaking of Vince Cable in glowing terms, as described by John Redwood today.

    Doesn’t he realise Cable is an arch europhile?

    In the end of the day power can only be exercised with the consent of the governed. It’s like the song ’50 ways to leave your lover’. Once it’s over, it’s over, wedding ring, thick concrete walls 15 feet high, or no.

    Think positive Robin. That’s how freedom is won back. Wanting it bad enough. If Cameron wants it bad enough he’ll fight to get it. At this point in time, we don’t know if he will or not.

    We know the Lib Dems won’t fight, and Labour will give everything away they can, but the Conservatives might. It’s a better bet than throwing in the towel in despair as you are proposing.

  14. Anonymous says:

    Cameron has selected his intended backbenchers. They are mostly unthinking clones who are only interested in themsleves. They will have their heads turned by money from Brussels soon enough.

    Your position is based on hope. UKIP’s is based on facts, the biggest of which is that to get out of the EU we will have to vote for a eurosceptic party.

    In no way is the Tory party a sceptic’s party – it is a party with sceptics who are diminishing in strenght not gaining.

    In some ways I admire your defence of the indefensible. It is a psychology you share with the most ardent of europhiles.

  15. tapestry says:

    UKIP deals in many excellent facts and is in many ways an honest party, bar its own internal structure, which is an abomination of democratic malpractice.

    In the current media-controlled political environment an openly eurosceptic party would not be permitted to win.

    UKIP only gets media because it hurts the Conservatives in general elections. The Conservative Party has to remain cryptic on Europe, but as I keep repeating, you don’t know what the outcome will be, much as you claim the opposite. There are indications both ways.

    Your strategy which is based on fear, is delighting the EU and Gordon Brown. That’s why you get so much exposure in the media.

    The power structure in the UK is not a democratic one, where peoples’ views contol outcomes. The media are the most powerful entity. Cameron got that part right, and got the Conservatives back into the game as a result.

    As with all politicians, the sales pitch gives little clue as to the intended programme. But throwing away the chance that a lot of good progress could be made, for the certainty of more failure seems a bit odd, frankly.

  16. Robin says:

    A lot of progress will be made if EUrosceptics dont vote for a EUrophile party like the Tories.

    Again you are not telling us how, if he is EUrosceptic (?), spiv Cameron is going to take back powers, which ones and when.

    This is always the same from Conservatives to UKIP supporters – vote for us because we would like to be EUrosceptic too. But their manifesto will be the same platitudes and NOT ONE PROMISE which can be verified after time.

    They will be saying (after getting our votes ) “well we wanted to change …… but we couldn`t, but we`ll not let any further bad things happen “
    And then they let bad EU things happen.

    Do yourself a favour Tap, give up touting for the EUrophile weak Tories and put your cross where it can show the establishment we`re not happy . Dont sell out this country as the Conservatives have.

  17. tapestry says:

    what one promise would that be?

    Conservatives have promised a referendum on further transfers of powers.

    Labour who your voting preference will assist, require no checks.

    If Cameron is elected, that will close the door on further treaties. Yet the German court demands that new treaties are required.

    It is crucial that Cameron be elected for anyone who wants the growth of EU power checked.

    Robin prefers slavery in perpetuity. And the risk that Labour might sign us into attempted pointless rescues of the Euro. Funny when you think about it.

  18. Twig says:

    OT but priceless:

    VC hero refuses to shake Gordon Brown’s hand because of ‘disrespect’ for Armed Forces

    I’ve tried to find the story on the BBC website but no sign of it so far.

  19. Robin says:

    I dont care about growth of EU powers – I want Britian out . What other countries do is their business.

    The promise – any one that the Tories make about the EU – worthless.

    Stop beleiving that further integration into the EU needs treaties . It doesn`t. It happens anyway . The spiv wont stop it because he`ll hope you wont notice .
    Once he`s got your vote, that`s it . No way to tell the political class that the EU is an issue.
