IT IS now beyond doubt that Theresa May is – how can we put this politely? – living with a sense of reality and morality entirely different to our own. The extreme selfishness, delusion and moral cowardice of her personality is fully exposed as she leads our country and her party to ever greater calamity. It really did look as if the ‘meaningful vote’ on her wretched deal was going to be a moment of national catharsis: Tory MPs would find their spine and a sense of honour – never easy for them on either count – and May would finally be ousted. However, it was not to be: instead, she has engaged in her favourite strategy of running down the clock, narrowing the options until only her preferred course of action (or inaction) remains viable.
Naturally both Leavers and Remainers within the Tory Party are livid, but there is, at the time of writing, still no sign of the leadership coup so desperately needed if we are to prepare for exit on WTO terms. Labour seem all over the place, their position as ethereal as a will o’ the wisp. It is clear, however, that few within any party are acting with noble intent or personal courage. Parliament, asked to implement a visionary, bold and courageous decision by the British people, has once again proved itself juvenile, insular and cynical, utterly incapable of dealing with the momentous nature of events.
If British politics has descended into farce, events in France have taken a deeply sinister turn with the deployment of the European Gendarmerie Force (Eurogendfor) armoured personnel carriers on the streets of Paris during the weekend’s #GiletJaunes protest that spread across the European continent.
Armoured personnel carriers under the EU flag suppressing tricolor-waving protesters on the streets of Paris isn't the best advert for close partnership with the EU. This is next door. #GiletsJaunes pic.twitter.com/a15QpAhfwI

Theoretically set up for the protection of the population in external areas of conflict, apparently the force’s remit does – well, what a surprise – allow it to act to help ‘protect’ the population on internal matters in certain situations. Who doubts that if things continue as they are that the coming European Army will one day be used in such ‘protective’ capacities? Predictably enough, this has attracted very little attention from the mainstream media in Britain. Admittedly, we are sidetracked by our own Brexit farce, but one doubts that the BBC and the rest of our Remain-dominated broadcast media would have been enthusiastic about looking into what may turn out to be as significant a moment as the stopping of all traffic between East and West Berlin in 1961. At the risk of engaging in hyperbole, perhaps last weekend saw the birth pangs of the new European Empire.
Or even, perhaps, a new global one: the UN Migration Pact seems to be a power grab on a global scale that, if its critics are correct, will make criticism of ‘migration’ all but illegal. Our government, predictably enough, has signed up to it.
What is glaringly obvious from politics everywhere is that the globalists have learned nothing from the protests of the last few years: perhaps intoxicated by the leftist notion of historical inevitability, they march on regardless that their actions will surely lead to ever greater levels of insurrection from desperate native populations throughout the Western World. It is easy to see how the violent Gilets Jaunes revolt in France will spread to Britain: we have shown remarkable restraint in the face of extreme insults and provocation from the Establishment during the past two years, and the fact President Macron seems to have backed down sends the dubious message that violence yields results when democracy does not. The confrontation between globalism and localism, between the citizens of nowhere versus the citizens of somewhere, seems doomed to get a lot worse before it gets better.
