Is Sunak in it for us, or himself?


BRITAIN is sick. Its sickness is the consequence of a succession of craven, indifferent and outright oikophobic political leaders. 

Like malignant parasites that slowly draw the life from an unsuspecting host, our representatives seek personal gain at the expense of our nation’s health. I suspect Rishi Sunak will be no different. Does he passionately want the opportunity to do what’s best for the country? Or does he want the top job to fulfil a personal ambition? My money’s on the latter. 

Britain will continue to expire. Mass immigration will carry on eroding our social and cultural bonds while placing enormous pressure on schools, housing, hospitals and GP surgeries; our schools, universities and cultural institutions will persist in spewing out anti-British bile that poisons our children against their own country, and living standards will further decline as our addiction to cheap credit and naive belief in the value of illusory money comes to an abrupt end. 

We’re in serious trouble. The economy is tanking and the cultural ties needed to endure collective hardship and bounce back no longer exist.

Make no mistake, the culture war being waged by the liberal-left on Britain is having a deleterious impact upon our economy. Just look at our government’s cowardly adoption of the ‘Net Zero’ target. This was done to appease the lunatic fringe which has proved so successful at occupying our cultural institutions, most notably the BBC. They don’t believe in ‘Net Zero’ as a way of combating anthropogenic global warming – how could they? We produce under one per cent of the world’s carbon emissions. ‘Net Zero’ is the policy through which they can degrade Western capitalism and atone for Britain’s imperial past. We’re paying the price in extortionately high energy bills which will lead to bankruptcies, unemployment, homelessness and poverty. 

Mass uncontrolled immigration is another key battleground in the culture war. It is not being fought by the liberal-left out of benevolent concern for the migrants (they’re happy to encourage hundreds to drown in the Mediterranean and English Channel, after all). It’s being fought, as Tony Blair’s adviser honestly admitted, to ‘rub the right’s nose in diversity’, and, by extension, harm the country that genuine small-c-conservatives love and wish to preserve. Tony Blair’s oikophobia opened the floodgates and successive Conservative leaders, afraid of the BBC’s race-baiting opprobrium, kept them open. Parts of our country are now unrecognisable. We have inter-communal violence between Hindus and Muslims; we suffer terrorist attacks perpetrated by newcomers who have not been integrated, something encouraged by the liberal-left sponsored anti-British creed of multiculturalism. Oikophobia and fear have combined to Balkanise Britain.

Where does this Balkanisation lead – a process which is being actively encouraged by our cultural institutions? Not only does it lead to inter-communal violence, as we’ve recently seen. It also leads to a fracturing of community bonds. People will no longer feel a sense of obligation and duty toward their fellow citizens, an outcome compounded by our woke education system and the apologetic cultural output of our institutions. In the long run, this will lead to a reduction in economic productivity as the virtues of duty and trust are replaced with suspicion and in some instances outright hostility. 

The economic health of the nation is dependent upon the cultural and social self-confidence of its citizenry. The more our politicians attack (as in the case of Blair) or fail to stand up for (Cameron, May, Johnson) our country, the poorer and less cohesive we become. Why would anyone wish to contribute to the betterment of a society they despise?

We’re sick. Is Sunak an oikophobe, indifferent careerist or coward? Or is he willing to not only face economic reality with long overdue fiscal reforms (which are pretty much inescapable anyway), but address the socio-cultural crisis that threatens our long-term prosperity and political stability? We’ll soon find out.
