European Outlook # 38 February 2017

We are still Europeans

Theresa May has made it clear that Brexit means a total break with the European Union. We will be out of the single market and the customs union. Her long-awaited speech to the dignitaries at Chatham House was celebrated by the jingoistic press. The Daily Mail featured a front page cartoon of her as Britannia treading the European flag underfoot, and The Sun boasted that they might have written her speech themselves.

Our leap into the unknown is supposed to control immigration but the Tories simply can't be trusted. Dave Cameron promised to reduce immigration to "the tens of thousands" but his Home Secretary Theresa May allowed it to rise to 370,000. It's true that EU citizens had a right to come here but she failed to stop non-European immigration. 
On a recent visit to Guys Hospital in London I was dealt with by an Australian receptionist, a South African nurse, an Italian technician, and an Irish doctor. I've got a Portuguese dentist, an Indian GP, a Pakistani optician, an Irish publican, a Turkish restaurateur, an Egyptian barber, and a Polish builder. None of them would be here if they were not required. We have got one of the highest employment rates in Europe but we still need workers from abroad.

Our globalist Tory government is begging Donald Trump for a trade deal. But nationalism, especially economic nationalism, is always at another nation's expense. When Trump says "America First" he means it. Any trade deal with America will be on their terms. Stand by for genetically modified crops, chemically enhanced chicken and uncontrolled drug prices that will cripple the National Health Service.

But nothing lasts forever and when this madness has run its course we will still be Europeans by history, geography, blood and culture, separated from the mainland by 30km of water.

George Soros
The American writer, financier and philanthropist George Soros has replaced Bernard Baruch and Emmanuel Goldstein in the far-right's imagination. They attack him for being a Jew but he has never practiced that religion. He was born to a Hungarian family who changed their name from Swartz. He has never been in a concentration camp. During the German occupation of Hungary he worked for the Ministry of Agriculture. According to Soros he “grew up in a Jewish anti-Semitic home” in which his parents were “uncomfortable with their religious roots.”

He is known as the man who broke the Bank of England because he made a lot of money out of the Exchange Rate Mechanism fiasco of 1992. He later explained that there was nothing anti-British about this coup. It was just that the UK had entered the ERM at an impossibly high exchange rate - at Margaret Thatcher’s insistence - and he took advantage of the situation.

His wealth makes him a member of the Establishment but fellow millionaires like Ukip patrons Paul Sykes, Arron Banks, and Alan Bown describe themselves as rebels.

He is accused of being a communist but he helped to bring down the Soviet Union by financing the Solidarity movement in Poland and the Charter 77 movement in Czechoslovakia.

He is also accused of supporting the New World Order but he opposed George W Bush's “War on Terror.” And he is accused of being a Zionist but he is an outspoken critic of Israel. He said: “There is a resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe. The policies of the Bush administration and the Sharon administration contribute to that. It’s not specifically anti-Semitism, but it does manifest itself in anti-Semitism as well. I’m critical of these policies.”

George Soros is an internationalist and a liberal but he is also a shrewd businessman who knows what he is talking about. His views on Brexit are worth listening to:

"At the moment the people of the UK are in denial. The current economic situation is not as bad as was predicted and they live in hope. But as the currency depreciates, and inflation will be the driving force, this will lead to declining living standards. This is going to take some time but when it does happen they'll realise that they are earning less than before because wages won't rise as fast as the cost of living.

The divorce is going to take a long time. It's much harder to divorce than to get married, so I think the desire for rapprochement will develop, and in theory or maybe even in practice you could have a situation in 2019 or 2020 when Britain will leave the EU on a Friday but join over the weekend and have new arrangements in place on Monday morning."

Putting Europe Together Again

Greg Johnson of Counter Currents says that he won’t take European unionists seriously until we can put Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia together again. But that is exactly what the European Union is doing. Slovenia and Croatia are together again in the EU and so are the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Bosnia, Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia have applied for membership of the EU and Albania and Kosovo are bound to follow.

Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein are de-facto members of the EU by virtue of their accession to the European Free Trade Association. And whatever Theresa May says to the contrary the UK will make similar arrangements. Ultimately history is driven by economics not by the hatreds and prejudices of politicians.

There may be old quarrels between member states but the EU is working. When I was born we were carpet bombing German cities and they were attacking us with cruise missiles and rockets but now 
we are at peace.

Brexit is seen by some Americans as a British version of the Boston Tea Party but it's nothing of the sort. Brexit was promoted by the mass media which is dominated by The Sun, The Daily Mail and Sky Television. The narrow victory of the Leave campaigners was clinched by their anti-European propaganda. They convinced the public that immigration was a European problem but more than half of our immigrants come from outside Europe and there is no reason why we cannot control them.

Europe will not degenerate into a patchwork of mini states anymore than the South will rise again. Throughout history tribes have united to become nations and nations have grown into mighty empires. This momentum will not be stopped by loud-mouthed populism or suffocating nostalgia. If European civilization is to survive we must stick together and not allow real or imagined differences to stand in the way of solidarity.


The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was set up in 1949 to counter possible Soviet aggression in Europe. When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990 it lost its reason for existence but instead of disbanding it recruited most of the former communist states bordering Russia.

Nato intervened in Serbia in 1999 and in Afghanistan in 2001. Serbia was a European problem but the Afghan operation was clearly outside of its remit. The invasion of Afghanistan ousted the Taliban regime that had been set-up by the Americans to counter the Soviet occupation. It was in retaliation for the 9/11 attacks on the USA. That outrage was carried out by a gang of Saudi Arabian nationals led by an Egyptian but America used it to justify their invasion of Afghanistan and the subsequent destruction of Iraq.

The new American president expects Nato member states to contribute 2% of their GDP. At present the USA pays 70% of the $9 billion Nato budget. But Donald Trump is so careful with the taxpayer's money that he has appointed no less than six Goldman Sachs executives to his cabinet.

Jens Stollenberg, the Norwegian head of Nato, defends the organization with passion but many critics want to abolish it. American general Curtis Scaparotti commands a military force that stands ready to resist an unlikely Russian takeover of the Baltic States.

By standardizing military equipment and training Nato has laid the foundations of a future European defence force. At present this is just a proposal, which Britain is strongly opposed to, but the reality is that America will not be prepared to pay for Europe’s defence forever.

Britain is leaving the EU but we will continue to co-operate with the rest of our continent. The clear and present danger to Europe is not the threat of a Russian invasion but the Third World invasion that is already happening. We are helping to patrol the Mediterranean but a much greater effort must be made. We cannot hide on our side of the Channel and pretend that this problem does not exist. Outside of the EU migrants will still be attracted to the UK by our employment opportunities and our generous social provisions.

Naval co-operation could be the beginning of much greater things but according to press reports Theresa May is proposing David Cameron as the next secretary general of Nato, although It's not clear what a reckless gambler and a failed prime minister could bring to the post. Perhaps we need an old Etonian to lead a doomed cavalry charge against the Russian guns?

Keynesian Economics

John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) established his reputation with his book The Economic Consequences of the Peace (1919). In the thirties he proposed to reduce unemployment with a radical program of government spending on public works. He realised that modern methods of production had changed everything, and he famously said: "When events change, I change my mind. What do you do?"

Adolf Hitler and FD Roosevelt took his advice and put their people back to work but the British government ignored him just as they had ignored Oswald Mosley in 1929  

Keynes realised that a thriving economy can get away with deficit spending. Workers earning good wages spend their money and pay their taxes and a few billion pounds worth of ‘quantitative easing’ doesn’t matter. This system is currently keeping Europe, America and Japan going. But since the financial crisis of 2008 the leading nations have started retreating into protectionism. America’s rejection of the Pacific trade deal, and Britain’s exit from the European Union, are short-term measures that will not work.

We have rejected Europe in favour of world trade. But trade deals always have strings attached. We cannot trade with India and China unless we accept their migrants. And we cannot recapture the old white dominions because Canada is part of the North American Free Trade Agreement and Australia and New Zealand are tied to Asian markets. 

Most nations trade with their neighbours and we are no exception. Ireland and Belgium are more important to us than India or China and it would be madness to have tariffs between us. We should reject economic nationalism and maintain our membership of the single market. President Donald Trump has promised us a favourable trade deal but he is an unsentimental businessman who is bound to put America first.

Tomorrow's World by Bill Baillie from Nationalist Week No 144, October 2007

For over half a century Britain has been importing cheap labour from all over the world. For the most part the immigrants have settled into self-contained areas and have not been assimilated into the general population. They have kept their own languages, music, food and religions. The liberal dream of a consensual multi-racial colonisation has completely failed at almost every level.

Research published by scientist Craig Venter shows that the races of mankind may have developed separately. This is rejected by the politically correct who think that ethnology is a taboo subject and it's seized upon by racists to justify their beliefs. Knowing our origins may help us to understand a world of collapsing empires, shifting populations, and constantly advancing technology.

Rhodesia was a prosperous colony until British protégé Robert Mugabe drove out the European farmers and replaced them with unskilled Africans. The country is now ruined but the great exploiters of Africa, like Anglo American, De Beers, Rio Tinto, Union Miniere, and North China Grid will protect their interests by installing a new and more pragmatic regime.

                               Ian Smith 1919 - 2007

As Europeans we are outraged to see our kinsmen lose their dominion over Zimbabwe and to see their numbers reduced from 300,000 to 30,000. But we knew this would happen when Ian Smith's brave rebellion was forced into surrender by American pressure on neighbouring South Africa.

Those of us who oppose the destruction of Europeans in Africa and Third World immigration into Europe are not necessarily driven by racism or hostility. We simply want to maintain our culture and ethnicity; a right enshrined in the United Nations' Declaration of Human Rights. If Native Americans and First Australians are entitled to survival then so are we.

It is perfectly reasonable to believe in Europe for the Europeans whilst acknowledging the cultural and scientific achievements of other races. We share the same planet and must jointly find solutions to population growth, climate change and diminishing resources. We must have a forum for debate and treaties limiting nuclear weapons. And we must promote an equitable distribution of wealth. This is not wishful thinking but common sense. The only alternative to co-operation is world domination. We know all about running a world empire but America will have to learn that cheap oil and cheap coffee are paid for in blood.

But there is no need for Europe and European-settled territories to be overrun by the teeming masses of humanity, People can be resettled and international problems can be resolved using the enormous economic power unleashed by modern science. Tomorrow's world will be based on equality and mutual respect but no state can be permitted to claim that it has been chosen by God to dominate all others. The age of supremacist imperialism is over.

In your European Outlook blog article "Racism is Racism" you say some people tried to register a party called "White People's Party" (in 2003) with the Electoral Commission but got turned down, so they called the party "British People's Party" instead.

This is not so, we tried to register a party called "White Nationalist Party" - the EC turned us down. So some of us formed (and registered) the England First Party (EFP) instead, around the end of 2003.

The British People's Party was not formed / registered until the end of the following year - 2004.

Interesting blogs by the way. Keep up the good work. Regards, Mark Cotterill

European Outlook: Thanks Mark, It's important to get our facts right but my point about the Electoral Commission's rejection is still valid. If the word 'white' is offensive then 'black' must be just as bad. Can anyone imagine universities offering courses in 'white studies' or local authorities supporting 'white history month?' If we are going to have a Race Relations Act it should apply across the board. 

James Dickie

James Dickie also known as Yaqub Zaki was born in Greenock, Scotland, the son of an engineer. He converted to the Muslim religion at school. He studied at Glasgow University and got his PhD at the University of Granada. He learned fluent Arabic and travelled widely throughout the Middle East, where he met his wife Irina Abdurrahda. He was appointed Professor of Islam at Lancaster University. In 2005, when he was deputy leader of the Muslim Parliament of Great Britain, he was asked by The Sunday Times about a possible terrorist attack on Tony Blair's office. He is reported to have replied:

"I say go ahead. I would be very happy. The IRA did it. They had rockets that were ready to rain down on No 10. It would be a shame it's a beautiful Georgian property. I wouldn't like it to be destroyed but as for the inmates, well, I don't care much what happens to them."

The Undead edited by James Dickie - available from Amazon

This is a collection of Vampire and Vampire-related poems and stories. My only knowledge of the genre is from the cinema and I never appreciated the scope of the subject, or the range of authors. They have all contributed to the mythology of the macabre and their stories share themes that combine to reinforce their authority. Like science fiction, this branch of fantasy is a vehicle without limitations. The most sceptical reader can find himself believing in Vampires, at least for a while. James Dickie has chosen his stories with care and introduced them objectively. Most of them are good stories in their own right that are worth reading. The occult factor is almost incidental.
