Sunak, the smooth-talking second-hand car salesman


I WATCHED Rishi Sunak on GB News on Monday night. He came across as the best example of a smooth-talking second-hand car salesman I have ever seen.

After the show a poll was conducted of the members of the audience, and 50 per cent of them still said they would vote Conservative.

What these people are not doing is opening their eyes to the state of this country, especially if it is not yet noticeable on their doorsteps.

However, it is getting closer to their doorsteps with every passing day with the crime rate rocketing, violent crime at a level never previously seen in this country, the terrorism threat level constantly at ‘substantial’ (not one of these audience members challenged him on that), indigenous homelessness on a massive scale while those who come to this country illegally find themselves in four-star hotels. At our expense. Nobody challenged him on that either.

Those of us in the front line of one of his favourite topics, stopping the boats, those of us who witness some of these events for ourselves, can see a whole different story to the fairytale this man wove to a rapt and in some cases, naive, studio audience in the north of England.

I am originally from the north of England, and northerners used to be nothing if not realists when it comes to smooth talkers like Sunak. No longer, it seems.

Yes, he talks an extremely good game but not once during that entire forum could his persuasive answers take my mind off the hellish state this country is in, with our own people huddled in shop doorways, old people in danger of dying of hypothermia, families who cannot afford a decent meal and knife-wielding maniacs on our streets.

Sunak’s comments about the small boats (actually huge dinghies) have a hollow ring to those of us who live on the Channel coast and see scores of illegal migrant men entering this country without even being aided by the lifeboats, and disappearing into the ether, thereby avoiding their presence in this country being recorded. Sunak’s idea of the figures is massively skewed and incorrect.

I have witnessed many illegal migrant landings and others around here have seen similar scenarios and incidents but guess what? Their voices are not heard because of the climate of fear created by the Woke Fifth Column that exists in this country. Recently, in the very small Kent town I live in, we had a machete attack, but have you seen it in the press? No! That is because these things are being covered up.

Many people are afraid to speak about what they see and experience for fear of ridicule, accusations of racism and in some cases, retribution. There is a climate of fear in this country on a level never seen before. How do I know? Because I talk to people in this area when doing my duties as a councillor and they tell me things they dare not tell anybody else. They will not repeat it to the police or any other authority. This includes encounters with illegal migrants crossing their property – and even knocking on their doors – after landing dinghies nearby without the aid of the lifeboat or Border Force. I understand why they wish to remain silent because I have been personally attacked for expressing the same views in public.

Finally, the biggest elephant in the room of all, ‘woke’, which infests every level of government and the private sector, was not given any airtime at all. It was touched upon briefly, although not named, during a question posed by a trans member of the audience.

This is another subject that nobody wants to discuss in public. Why? Because of the climate of fear created by these self-styled arbiters of what we should and should not be allowed to say, do or think.

All in all, I can only conclude that if this audience is an example of a cross-section of the British public, there is a lot of hard work to do on the part of those of us whose eyes are open to the truth.
