David Cameron’s Greatest Legacy: The Rise and Rise of UKIP

British Prime Minister David Cameron has been making bold, statesman-like noises about Islamic State and President Putin this week. Well, of course he has. It’s what desperate leaders always do when their domestic policies and popularity ratings are tanking.

Unfortunately, it may be too little too late.

Cameron has reached that stage in his political career where, even were he singlehandedly to liberate Mosul, personally undo the handcuffs of all the captive Yazidis, Christians and Shias, stop the Syrian civil war, and engineer an enduring peaceful settlement in the Ukraine, he would still go down in history as one of Britain’s lesser prime ministerial also-rans.

Indeed, it is looking increasingly as though his single most significant legacy will be the one summed up by the cover of this week’s Private Eye satirical magazine: David Cameron, perhaps even more so than charismatic leader Nigel Farage, is the man most responsible for rise and rise of the Britain’s tea party UKIP.

Consider the latest opinion polls.

YouGov/Sun poll CON 32%, LAB 35%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 15%

This spells out the situation in black and white. Cameron’s Conservatives stand barely a prayer of winning a working majority at the next UK general election. And this despite the fact that Cameron’s prime opponent, Labour leader Ed Miliband, is widely considered such a weird, comical, economically illiterate joke figure as to be almost unelectable. And also, despite the fact that Britain currently has one of the world’s most successful economies and is enjoying a house price boom which is making many of the people who ought naturally be drawn to voting Conservative earn more in a year, tax free, than they do from their day jobs.

Why then are the Conservatives still polling so relatively dismally?

Nigel Farage – The Only Politician Who Dares Say What We’re Thinking

The danger of sounding Conservative

“When we believe something – we don’t go ‘are you thinking what we’re thinking’. We say it out loud.”

I like this line from Nigel Farage’s UKIP conference address. My Spectator colleague Fraser Nelson thinks the  speech was a bit of a let down – which was maybe inevitable given that Farage has had to clip his own wings recently in order to pay more attention to party organisation and party discipline. But for me there was more than enough red meat in it to convince me that UKIP is staying truer to its brand than any of the three other mainstream parties are to theirs.

That paragraph about the Romanian crime wave, for example. You’d never hear Cameron, or Clegg or Miliband getting as near-the-knuckle as this, would you?

London is already experiencing a Romanian crime wave. There have been an astounding 27,500 arrests in the Metropolitan Police area in the last five years. 92 per cent of ATM crime is committed by Romanians. This gets to the heart of the immigration policy that UKIP wants, we should not welcome foreign criminal gangs and we must deport those who have committed offences.

“No,” the usual troll suspects will no doubt say. “But you’d hear it from Nick Griffin….”

And there’s your problem, in a nutshell. Since at least the beginning of the Blair era and probably well before, the left has very successfully managed to close down any argument of which it disapproves by crying “racist”, “elitist”, “homophobe”, “NIMBY”, “Little Englander”, “fascist”, or whatever. This has created within the Westminster bubble a culture of caution bordering on cowardice. Before a politician speaks he almost never asks himself: “Is this true?” Rather, he asks himself: “Will this get me into trouble with the BBC?” Which is why, of course, we get politicians like Rachel “Boring” Reeves.

As Fraser Nelson noted in this astute analysis, things have got so bad that even a Conservative prime minister currently doing well in the polls and with a fair economic wind behind him dare not say anything too conservative-sounding except in near-secret, among High Tories, at occasions like the Carlton Club dinner.

Farage, to his credit, isn’t having this. He recognises, for example, that the Westminster elite’s position on immigration – which boils down, basically, to “racism is bad m’kay?” – doesn’t actually reflect how most real people think.

Most real people these days are relaxed about issues like race, religion and ethnicity, but excedingly unrelaxed about issues like thieving gangs or expensive translation services for immigrants who won’t learn the language or having parts of their city turned into no-go areas by Islamist thugs. Does this make them racists or natural BNP voters? Nope. It just makes them entirely normal.

Five Reasons Why the Conservatives Deserve to Lose the Next Election

The scale of the problem

Please: can someone stop his job being so ludicrously easy?

1. Cowardice. Whose bright idea was it to ban Nigel Farage from speaking at the Tory conference in Manchester? And what kind of signal does this send out to all those waverers in the party wondering whether or not to transfer the allegiances to UKIP?

“We’re so concerned that Nigel Farage might tell you stuff that you want to hear that we’ve decided not to let you hear it.”

2. Spinelessness. Remember all that talk about the importance of localism? Remember all those principled-sounding statements we’ve had from the likes of John Hayes and Eric Pickles that in future if communities don’t want wind turbines imposed on them then they won’t have to? Well, it seems all that has gone by the board. No doubt under combined pressure from all the energy companies (whose beneficiaries range from the deputy prime minister’s wife to the prime minister’s father in law) and the ideological greens at DECC, Cameron’s faux-conservatives have caved yet again. I’m told by planning experts that Eric Pickles’s vaunted amendments will make not the blindest bit of difference to communities trying to fight wind turbines. So this betrayal of their natural constituency in the shires will help the Conservatives how, exactly?

3. Dishonesty. Immigration, the Conservatives have twigged, is a key issue to many voters. Hence those crass, ugly billboards. Hence scary Immigration Minister Mark Harper’s tough-sounding statements about how the Coalition is really on top of the problem. Except as Andrew Gilligan revealed in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph it’s all a nonsense. Our statistics on immigration are so unreliable as to be meaningless. I don’t know about you but I don’t like being taken for a fool by a party angling for my vote.

4. Cynicism. Much sense has been talked by those who understand the internet – among them, Mic Wright and Willard Foxton, both of this parish – about the illiberalism and counterproductivity of Cameron’s grandstanding crusade against all manner of online pornography. If it makes no sense, why is he doing it? Why out of a cynical attempt to win the approval of the leftist harpies at MumsNet, of course. Sorry but I’m old-fashioned enough to believe that government policy should be based on high principle and sound evidence, not on cheap, cynical bids to appeal to socialistic control freaks outside your natural constituency. But then, Dave does think of himself as the “heir to Blair” doesn’t he?

5. Incompetence. Do you know what, though? I think I could still forgive the Tories all of the above if they’d at least managed to do the one thing Tories are always supposed to be good at: undoing the economic mess created by the previous socialist administration.

But this “economic recovery” we’re allegedly experiencing is, like “green jobs”, a chimera. Liam Halligan doesn’t believe in it.

(Nor, suspects Rob Tyler, is it any different in the US.)

And no, this isn’t just a cyclical thing or a world-economy thing. It’s a direct consequence of Cameron’s and Osborne’s failure to acknowledge the scale of the problem and deal with it.

The framework required to support meaningful growth is simply not there. We are still spending beyond our means, the national debt is still ruinous, we still have a massive balance of trade deficit, and the government seems in no hurry to do anything about it. A wrecking ball should have been taken to New Labour’s policies by now, given that they’re largely responsible for the mess we’re in. Instead, David Cameron is like a man who’s been put in charge of the family Christmas and doesn’t want to upset the old’uns by changing too much. Apart from walnuts in the sprouts and a new board game for after dinner, it’s the same as it ever was.

    But I would also like you to actually start mapping out what a detailed UKIP manifesto might look like.

Breaking news: Cameron now officially even worse than Ted Heath – James Delingpole

October 20, 2011

“And you DEFINITELY won’t end up reliving Weimar or anything like that…”

It requires real talent and serious effort to become the worst Tory prime minister in history. To be honest, I never thought Cameron had it in him. I thought: “Well maybe they’re right, all those Tory “insiders” who tap the sides of their noses knowingly and say: ‘Don’t you worry. He knows what he’s doing. He’s just positioning himself, that’s all. Deep down he’s a true blue Eurosceptic small state Tory through and through.” And after that, I thought: “I mean however bad he does get, he’s never going to be a match in sheer bloody awfulness for the chippy, asexual sailor who first set our course for the rocks clearly marked Euro Hell Oblivion, all the while reassuring his nervous crew, “No they’re not rocks at all. They’re actually a really deep, safe channel which just looks like rocks but is in fact an optical illusion. A special, magic deep channel which will also end wars and make us all richer and give us more fish than ever before.”

But Dave, I salute you. Today you have managed it with the most pointless, spiteful, vindictive, bullying absurd directive so far in your already swollen catalogue of disasters as Prime Minister.

Even as MPs agreed to hold a Commons vote on a referendum, government sources made clear that the Tories would be whipped to vote against a poll.

Mr Cameron’s decision to impose a three-line whip has angered many MPs, since the vote was called under rules the Coalition promised would give backbenchers more freedom.

Not only will this decision needlessly alienate some of the most talented up-and-coming Conservative MPs, from Douglas Carswell and Steve Baker to Priti Patel, but it will confirm to what little of the traditional Tory constituency which hasn’t already deserted to UKIP that Cameron’s new, “detoxed” principle-free Conservative party is no longer capable of representing their interests in any way whatsoever.

Also, of course, it will provide the most splendiferous free gift both to Nigel Farage and to Dave’s old school chum Boris who, not unreasonably, is positioning himself rather more sensibly on the forthcoming Eurogeddon.

Mr Johnson told a Westminster lunch: “I think it would be absolutely crazy to decide the solution to the eurozone crisis is to intensify fiscal union and try to create an economic government of Europe. I really can’t see for the life of me how that is going to work.”

But don’t let’s allow Boris to steal Dave’s thunder on this, of all days, Dave’s very special day:

The day he finally got the title of the Worst Tory Prime Minister in British history.

  2. NC says:23rd October 2011 at 8:57 pmCameron’s policy towards banning any Conservative MP from voting for a referendum on EUSSR membership is worse than Stalin’s policy on Trotsky.

    Cameron is really deluded. A deluded toff, with too much money to give a damn about the consequences of bailing out the Euro – which we will have to do AGAIN sooner or later if we remain in the EU even if we keep sterling because of the economic side effects.

    We should get out of the EU altogether. EU membership is like being chained to the Titanic. We have nothing to gain because we import more from other EU countries than we export (this is the trade deficit), we can only lose more and more by having anything to do with it.

    1. Dung says:25th October 2011 at 1:41 pmWell said NC. What is the point of Cameron arguing that “now is not the time” and at the same time stating that it is not current Conservative Party policy to hold a referendum on the EU?
      Answer; talking about the timing conveniently allows him to sidestep the issue of why a referendum is not his policy.
      It would appear that the government’s worries are financial (we will have economic problems if we leave) and political (we will have less power in the EU if we leave).
      In 1939 the UK declared war on Nazi Germany, in doing so it realised that there would be huge economic problems and that millions would die. However it was judged that freedom and democracy were worth any suffering to protect.
      Staying in the EU whatever the deal means we continue to have no democracy in the UK. The people of the UK can not vote out of office the people who make most of our laws.
      There should be no sacrifice too great in recovering our fredom and democracy.

    The BBC isn’t forcing CE/BCE on anyone. There is no big Marxist conspiracy. Your pathetic, overblown, paranoid article in the Mail is an embarrassment to journalism. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Just a heads up.

    1. Simon says:25th October 2011 at 8:09 pmI’m not expecting a reply of course – your position is utterly defenceless. The Mail article will stand without acknowledging the BBC’s ACTUAL position on the matter (which, if you actually looked at it, is pretty fucking reasonable) and will continue to attract comments from deluded readers like Alison from Devon who writes:

      “This article is the MOST IMPORTANT one printed in the Mail for weeks. Yes ALL TRUE – wake up people, James is right!”

      In the future, please try not to base your writing on pure, steaming bullshit just because it fits in with your agenda.

      1. Anonymous says:25th October 2011 at 8:39 pmWow, James might have made a mistake. Lets use it as an excuse to heap on some frothing psychotic abuse.
        1. Simon says:26th October 2011 at 5:53 pmIf James made a mistake (he did) the article should be corrected or removed altogether. Journalists must be held to account.

          Funnily enough, “frothing” and “psychotic” are two adjectives I’d use to describe the article:

      2. Veloicty says:27th October 2011 at 10:20 pmThe BBC’s position is utterly defenceless.

        The World Service ran yet another dishonest article on Malaria a week ago peddling the lie there’s no cure, peddling another PR job for the globes greatest software monopolist, Bill Gates, charity work and peddling yet another advert for GlaxoSmithClyne (how much garbage can the BBC pack into one news article???)

        The bent BBC journo claimed Glaxo had aa drug that could cure “up to 90% of Malaria” (nice advert for Big Pharma) but never mentioned DDT spraying almost enirely eradicated this preventable (by DDT sparying) killer disease.

        The bent BBC then ran yet another ‘news’ story on Bill Gates charity work and giving $billions to stupid ways to stop Malaria. How many times is telling viewers of Gates donation ‘news’ to them? Do the BBC have to plug him and this old news as new ‘news’ 20 times before everyone gets it?

        The BBC have not mentioned in 60 years the truth about Malaria and that the DDT ban has caused 60-100 million preventable deaths.

        So much for investigative journalism eh? So much for being a ‘public service broadcaster’ eh? So much for the BBC’s devotion to truth eh mate?

        Before you throw stones in greenhouses make sure you’re out of them pea brain.

        You will join me in not defending the Bwent Broadcasting Corpse, but in demanding this toilet of corrupt journalism be shut down and off the drip feed of public (and EU and corporate) money won’t you?

        You who stands up for truth (unlike the BBC) will demand this sewer system be shuttered.. won’t you mate?

        1. NC says:28th October 2011 at 5:57 pmYou’re right about DDT, which saved millions from typhus by killing insect vectors after liberation in WWII, is totally non-toxic, and has absolutely no significant ecological effects outside the imagination of the BBC’s truth censors. There was one false claim made by Rachel Carson to hype her book “Silent Spring” which Kennedy read and believed in 1962, and for fifty years the politically correct fascists have been banning it. The theory is that it gets concentrated in some insects which birds eat, and ends up making their eggshells too thin, and thus upsets the mythical balance of nature (there isn’t such a balance, as part 2 of Adam Curtis’s excellent BBC documentary earlier this year exposed very clearly). This isn’t correct if DDT is used correctly. The same kind of ecological fascism biases the BBC’s treatment of radiation. We all get background radiation from potassium-40 in bananas. So what? Kennedy banned nuclear tests in space to keep it “clean”. Little problem: space is intensely radioactive with cosmic rays. Background radiation on the moon’s surface is 1 mR/hour, 100 times higher than in London, as the astronauts found out with their dosimeters. All the environmental liars are supported by BBC bias, which simply refuses to acknowledge that truth exists.
    2. Luc Ozade says:27th October 2011 at 7:21 pmSimon, you are entitled to your opinion as is anyone. However, my opinion of your comment is, to use your own words, pathetic, overblown and paranoid in itself.

      I can only speak for myself but I always find James’s writings to be well-written, stimulating, thought-provoking, often tongue-in-cheek (which could be missed by readers such as yourself) but with a high degree of accuracy overall.

      1. Simon says:28th October 2011 at 12:45 amI’m not here to make a wide point about Delingpole’s work. I get the impression we probably don’t agree on politics, but actually that’s completely irrelevant here. I’m here because I read an article he wrote in a national newspaper with a circulation of 2 million that was so obviously full of shit – shit that was being lapped up and praised as truth by scores of internet commenters – that it made me very angry. I don’t know if this is his usual style. I don’t really care. I just want him to acknowledge his mistake and correct/retract the article.

        And please don’t patronise me by claiming that “readers such as myself” might have missed the tongue-in-cheek element. Read the article. Is it tongue in cheek? Perhaps even more importantly, is it being perceived as tongue in cheek by its readers? No it isn’t.

        1. Luc Ozade says:28th October 2011 at 5:59 amWell Simon, I wouldn’t presume to speak for James – he is more than capable of doing that for himself. And I didn’t say that the article in question was written tongue in cheek, just that as any good writer does, he uses many devices to keep his readers interest, tongue in cheek being one of them.

          His criticism of the BBC obviously upset you. You don’t think they’re guilty of crass political correctness and propagating their own, frequently one-sided, pet subjects and theories from their hallowed position, then?

          All I can say is that I applaud writers and commentators who draw attention to what amounts to subversive activities and alert readers to what seems to be going on.

          Thank heavens for the relative freedom of the internet.

  4. NC says:25th October 2011 at 9:55 amSo no referendum, it figures! “Democracy” is now the power of the Fuhrer’s whips to stamp out dissent amongst MPs. You have a “choice”: vote Conservative or Labour. Both parties ban dissent in their own ranks and ban even having a referendum over continued EUSSR membership. Actually, Brezhnev’s USSR did introduce similar “democracy” where you could vote for any party member you wanted to implement the dictatorial policies Brezhnev’s cronies had decided upon.

    Cameron yesterday: “If your neighbour is a dictatorial EUSSR money squandering tyrant whose house is on fire, you should help him put out the flames by getting yourself further into debt. If the EUSSR doesn down, so will slavery to Brussels in the UK. We cannot risk freedom. We have an enormous trade deficit with the EUSSR, importing more of their products than we import, so we stand to lose this imbalance in trade if they cease trading with us in revenge. The UK does not have the Euro but it must defend it because we want a say in Brussels. Just as Churchill said in 1940, we must stand shoulder to shoulder with Hitler and Stalin (comrades in 1940, before Hitler invaded Russia) in the interests in unity, trade, dictatorship, contempt for the citizens, and the power of despotic regimes disguised as free democracies.”

    I (Velocity) told Danny Boy Hannan the ‘leader’ he much admired was behind the curve, ‘Call Me Twat’ Cameron and a liberal (socialist in dripping wet rags) and was going to be an absolute disaster in Govt. But D’Boy would not listen.
    Hannan ‘fell’ for Obumma. And sure as eggs he ‘fell’ for Cameron.
    I take no joy in my vindication. I just want to point it out and rub it in.
    Danny Boy is an idealistic, well-meaning but delusional windbag (like Ron Paul).
    He is the best of a bad lot (politicians). but he should still never lead anyone anwhere.
    Politicians along with bamkers are the 2 of the 3 worst professions ever to walk the Earth (No.3 is the judiciary and lawyers)
    There’s no such thing as a good politician… Obumma proved it, Cameron proved it, and Danny Boy in his own ignorant backing losers way proves it thrice

    The BBC (Bent Broadcasting Corpse) is “an embarrasment to jounalism” every friggin day.
    This State shithole of journalism is a non-stop propaganda clearing house.
    I watched their pitifully boring Saturday morning slots a while ago and no less than 3 bent news articles on climate change ran in the space of 2 hours (i had to switch the trash off). The harder these bent scum try to con the British public AGW is real the lower the public regards the threat. The BBC have been trying (and failing miserably) for 10 years. Nobody believes them or anything the State peddles any longer.
    The BBC are past it. Utterly corrupt. Disturbingly out of touch (have you seen their pitiful World Service?).
    You defending the Bent Broadcasting Corpse is a mark of the man you are. Stick your moral sevitude up your puckered backside toe-rag

    1. Simon says:28th October 2011 at 1:09 amI don’t care what you think about the BBC. I’m not here to defend the BBC. I’m here to attack Delingpole’s blatant disregard of the truth in a nationally circulated article which happens to involve the BBC.

      Also I don’t really want to have a discussion with someone invents hilarious little acronyms to describe the organisations/people he doesn’t like and who probably giggles to himself every time he types them.

      1. Velocity says:28th October 2011 at 5:33 pmIs giggling to yourself while typing now against socialist Law?

        Labour shat out 2,400 of the turds during their bankrupt crooked reign, it’s hard to keep up!

        The BBC deserves all the sleighting it gets (and some). This organisation of socialist shams and establishment crooks is already down the sewer, only pblic money keeps this pile of crap afloat

        1. Simon says:28th October 2011 at 7:11 pmYou’ve missed the point, but I’d still love you to give me an example of one such “socialist law” that is even close to a ban on giggling while typing. Go on. Apparently you’ve got 2,400 to choose from.
          1. Velocity says:29th October 2011 at 10:46 amHuman Rights Laws… there’s hundreds of the socialists moronic rules in a big steaming nutshell for you to swallow

            any imposition on the free market operating and businesses free to maage their business how they see fit …from employment law to Min Wages to Elf & Safety …there’s a few more hundred turds of the socialist agenda thrown into the ‘free’ market

            how about the smoking ban? This Blair-Brown vandalism of the greatest institution in Britain, the great British Pub, has caused the pub closure rate to more than double, from 3 a week to 7 a week since its intro (against Labours own manifesto, an in writing lie) and over 50,000 Pub staff to lose their jobs

            the free markets greatest enemy is Govt intervention. Govt is the enemy of freedom and free markets

            Once you’ve swallowed and cumped on that lot of socialist law/junk i’d imgine you’re going to look like a 70 stone socialist pig…. or an 18 stone patahlogical liar like Gordon Brown pumped full of anti-depresants and diet pills just to stay alive

            Socialism: turns every country in history into a shithole

  8. NC says:1st November 2011 at 10:23 pmThe Euro and probably the EUSSR are finished now the Greeks are having a referendum; the Greeks are socialists who blame the government and bankers for the crisis. They won’t accept a 50% write-off, they would still moan about the colossal repayments if it was a 90% write-off, because a tenth of the their debt is still more than their top-heavy lefty socialist state sector economy can afford. The built up debts in the same way Brown did here, but on a bigger scale, by borrowing money and expanding the state sector. Now the riot about bad government when austerity measures kick in. The time to riot is against a socialist government while it’s sinking you into debt, not when it’s too late. The effect on global stock markets and Italian debt repayments from the mere announcement of the Greek referendum shows the problem.

    When is Cameron going to realise that “pulling together” isn’t sensible when pathological socialists are involved? Let’s see now, maybe Cameron will announce Britain is going to take over Greek debt, so they can go back to paying millions of state sector jobsworths to riot against bad government decisions five years too late, and to enable France and Germany to get away scott-free with their bad decision to let Greece join the Euro in the first place? Maybe Cameron will move 10 Downing Street to Brussels, so he can join all his fascist pals in dictating to Britain from the Continent?
