A Political Blog for Libertarian Conservatives

Welcome to our blog - updated whenever we feel there is something worthwhile to say   -  which is pretty much all the time but is limited by the reality of only 24 hours in each day.

How long before we say "Let's move on"?

Just a Thought . . .

Exceptionalism fuels anti-exceptionist sentiment.
Those who demand "special status" will inevitably be spurned.

Eminent tax consultant Richard Murphy does offer some rather silly unfounded conjecture when he steps  into political speculation.

Thankfully, mathematician Anthony Masters, a Libertarian Conservative himself, provides some evidence-based commentary to conclude that  there is no ideological monoculture growing within the Conservative grass-roots. We thoroughly recommend his blogsite article: Murphy's Flaw

That many regard the emergence of a separately identifiable Libertarian movement inside the Conservative Party as a new thing is testimony to the corruption of the Party's libertarian core principles. If the Party is to survive then it must not only fully re-embrace this widespread core ethos but must be very clear to provide a "home" and a voice to this large vote-group or lose them to a Party that does.

Fear is the Aim!

The freedom and liberty that our forebears fought and died for has been whittled away to nothing by a cabal of self-serving, power-mad authoritarians in Westminster.

Their silence on Police Crimes and Corruption speaks volumes for their covert aim - the eradication of all individual liberty and the subjugation of all people under the omnipotent diktats of the State.

Career politicians have become the crime Godfathers, the terrorist masterminds. Police have become their skulking hitmen - thugs and criminals all.

Perhaps this ultimate betrayal can be stopped by a clean sweep of the Political cabal; perhaps not.

Just when we thought #RotherhamAbuse could not get worse we hear that

the abuse files have been deleted!

If SFO fails to confiscate ALL computing devices immediately for forensics then we can be in no doubt that a major cover-up is in train.

If this travesty is allowed to pass unchecked then ministers must be held to account.

Headteachers who make no effort to understand children or child psychology should have no place in our schools. Yet many of our schools are infected with such people who seriously damage the ability of children to learn. Teachers who actually do understand children will know that uniforms are one of the most alienating and resented aspects of school.

Today Huffington reports an initiative by M&S to make school uniforms "cool" - "cool without breaking the rules" the advertisement said. Wow! We thought. What a splendid idea - an real and actual contribution to education! Yet the pompous, anal retentive head at Brentwood school says "School uniform isn't cool. It's not meant to be cool."

Well Mr Drew, we don't know yet why the School Governors would let you be a head-teacher but that kind of attitude exactly sums up why schools and head-teachers should never be permitted to issue any diktats to families of any kind - not just on term-time holidays.

To pitch organised paedophilia in the UK as a Muslim crime well serves those peddling the religions hatred agenda. JK5 is compiling a repository to document this sickening crime so we can get a better idea of its nature and extent.

After only 24 hours with 2 of us working on it we have collected over 30 reliable authoritative sources that suggest some trends. These "reliable" sources do not include any of the thousands of social media "hate-rants" but are restricted to media sources known for factual reporting. Observations so far:

  1. Neither religion nor race come up as a statistically dominant feature.
  2. Cover-ups and alleged cover-ups are far more prevalent for some religions than others and this correlates exactly to the relative representation in government.

We are looking forward to publishing the full organised, indexed repository and our conclusions in due course.

Douglas Carswell, MP  has defected to UKIP! 

Is this a defining moment for both Conservatives and UKIP?CarswellDoug h110

Doug, hero for Libertarian Conservatives, has jumped ship saying he did not believe David Cameron was "serious about the change we need". Something many of us have been urging the Party to take seriously for some time. Indeed it is the whole raison d'ĂȘtre for the JK5 project.

Doug, we wish you well. You've given many of us a LOT to think about today!

Fantacist and Labour fanaticist Ben Hicks, calling himself "MP for Brixton", does have an interesting Twitter bio. saying:

"Labour - making work pay for Parliament"

Perhaps he has inadvertently summed up Labour's underlying contempt for workers as mere pawns to be used for the benefit of the "important people" - their shop stewards and politburo.

Of course not an MP, just masquerading with no disclaimer, Ben (if that's even his real name) trolls twitter denouncing Labour critics as trolls. Interesting job if you can get it, though we suspect no-one pays him for this. Indeed we suspect that his delusions may inhibit prospects of gainful employment at all.

Police adopt new stop and search code of conduct.

How can anyone rationalise the quite correct attack on MISUSE of Stop & Search in the street with the simultaneous blanket Stop & Search everyone online (DRIP).

This contradiction in ethics and philosophy will undermine confidence in both the Police and the Tory Party.

The propensity for Conservative MPs to step way outside their knowledge zone never ceases to amuse.  Today Dominic Grieve espouses the ludicrous "Christians are persecuted" theme. Apart from such drivel being utterly untrue, the comments are seen as facile and contrived by non-supporters and embarrassing by most supporters.

Continuing David Cameron's totally discredited "we are a Christian country" nonsense, all Grieve has managed to achieve is to further alienate more than 50% of the electorate. An otherwise reasonably intelligent man, Grieve has made a fool of himself and damaged the Party.

Fortunately we have the eloquence and research of BHA web authors to give us some facts and reasoned argument:

"BHA rejects scaremongering by former Attorney General Dominic Grieve, false narrative of Christian persecution in Britain", humanism.org.uk
