A PATRIOT’S EUROPE
A Europe of the nations remains an ideal that I believe will be adopted by a youth
disillusioned with the style of contemporary politics in stagnation. The question is who is promoting this worthy cause? The
answer is very clear – no one! It is for this reason that I agreed to contribute to a new ACTION paper, renamed EUROPEAN
ACTION, to embrace the European ideal in word and in spirit.
For me, it is a great patriotic idea that transcends the narrower nationalism, a petit-nationalism causing so much
friction between people sharing the same cultural traditions and a common history of great achievements. It is not a surrender
of national sovereignty but more of a binding of weakened sovereignties in order to create an independence based on strength
in unity ... the greater sovereignty of Europe.
I have believed in the basics of the political and economic unity of
Europe all of my life since I joined the Mosley movement in my teens. Then, we formed bonds with other groups and parties
on the Continent, shared our ideas and forged lasting friendships at summer camps both here and over there across the English
Our patriotism was unquestioned as the Union flag remained a central focus of our activities. Now, today, we
have the Euro-sceptics, mainly the far-right break-away rump of the Tory Party, maintaining that they alone embody patriotism
in the form of xenophobic anti-Europeanism. What they do not tell you is that they really embrace the global free market economy
... the very same system that controls and manipulates the economies of the entire world, thus making a mockery of free government
and free economies. To me, that is thoroughly unpatriotic.
I want to appeal to those who still believe that Britain
can go it alone by considering the true consequences of this proposed British autarky in the face of largely hostile world
competition. I am no great fan of what goes by the abbreviation, the “EU”. We have recently witnessed the capitulation
to the forces of globalism in the person of Peter Mandelson, the EU Trade Commissioner. This serial political reject had been
championed by Tony Blair to be the globalists’ representative at the heart of Europe in one of the key positions defining
how world trade should affect our continent.
Mosley always warned of the threat of under-cutting from the East, the exploitation
of cheap labour in order to keep costs down and profits high. But it was always at the expense of our own workers and our
own industries. Now, the traitor, Mandelson, opened the floodgates to cheap imported Chinese goods into Europe, putting European
firms out of business and throwing our workers on the dole.
This is why we need a genuine European solidarity based on
patriotism to replace this treacherous acquiescence with the global free-for-all that elements controlling the European Union
quite plainly feel is the way forward for all of us.
We wish to replace the circus in Brussels, not because Europe as
an entity is bad for Britain ... but because OUR Europe, a Europe of the Peoples, is the only true guarantee that the will
of the people shall prevail.
We propose that Europe must be a very positive Europe of the nations insofar that every
component retains its regional customs, traditions and peculiar ways of life. What we do not want is a “melting pot”,
that mish-mash of cultures that only destroys without creating anything worthwhile in its place. Just look at America ...
the worst example.
We have seen the failure of multi-culturalism in our own Britain, which is virtually enforced by a
liberal/Left agenda within the government. It has failed because it was not a natural and voluntary process ... as opposed
to the centuries-old infusion of various European elements.
An attempt at a single, grey “multi-culturalism”
within a broader European context would also fail ... because people remain attached to their roots as an expression of their
“Britain First in Europe a Nation” was the slogan on our Union Movement membership cards,
the first being a declaration of our patriotism and the second being the revolutionary call for solidarity with our fellow
Europeans. There is nothing contradictory within this very clear aim because we always felt that other patriots in Europe,
as loyal to their countries as we were to ours, shared so much in common that mutual collaboration was not only inevitable
but also strongly desired.
That is the basis of the need for a union of the Europeans.
We must surely have a strong
democratic structure for this bonding of the peoples of the continent, without which the bankers, the money-changers and the
global racketeers take over. They have done it in the present set-up and they have sold us out.
Our Europe is not up
for grabs, no more than it is merely a piece of real estate up for sale. For that reason we must define our ideology in terms
that are very clearly of the people and for the people. That means voting on a regular basis, consulting the people on all
issues and acting on the results of those consultations.
A federal system seems to be the only method for securing regional
autonomy in relation to the rules and customs that are best suited to those regions. Thus we secure and protect the character
and traditions that have endured and developed over the centuries. There will be no uniformity but rather an encouragement
of the great diversity of Europe of north, south, east and west.
The migration of labour will be free throughout the
continent but this will be limited through necessity. That necessity will be determined by the needs of each region rather
than a free-for-all of labour simply converging where the pickings are the richest.
European government must rule throughout
Europe, intervening where necessary, protecting the people from injustice and securing help wherever it is needed.
thing it must not do and that is to ignore the wishes of the people.
