Book launch and talk at All Souls College High Street Oxford Friday 17th May at 2pm

Just a reminder that I am giving my talk in Oxford tomorrow, when I will demonstrate the collapse in support for major traditional centre left and centre right parties, the impact of the Euro and the EU scheme on those parties, and the general disillusion with the establishment that we see on both sides of the Atlantic.

“We don’t believe you” Why populists reject the establishment (via Amazon)

Signed copies available tomorrow at the launch.

    Good luck. I say the limpet in No.10 is refusing to budge hoping her atrocious WA gets through. Then she really would be invincible.

      “Then she really would be invincible.”

      …..Not without a Conservative Party, she wouldn’t.

      She can pull whatever underhanded dishonest stunts she chooses, she can ultimately only last until the next general election.

      If the Conservatives don’t get rid of her, we will.

        Steve – I admire your optimism.
        If TM’s surrender treaty gets through, from everything we hear it will put ALL the cards into the EU’s hands. Then – what makes you think they’ll ALLOW us to have ”the next General Election”?
        We’d be lucky to be able to vote for anyone unless they were EU-chosen. And that certainly wouldn’t be a Eurosceptic, would it?

        It’s now in the interest of Labour to support her colony of the EU agreement with extra capitulation. She will then stop the Brexit Party embarrassing Labour and Tories and be busy wrecking the not Conservative party until the end of the transition period while the UK doesn’t really leave. Then the brainwashed youth will sign up for the EU army and unemployment.

    Will it become available on YouTube or periscope?

    Will it become available on YouTube or periscope? I ask because it sounds interesting and your message will resonate with those who find Jordan Pieterson and those like him interesting.

    We’re not populists, we’re democrats. There’s a difference. The term ‘Populism’ is just another tedious pejorative invented by the liberal left media to slander their political enemy with the Fascist card.

    The real danger is Marxism, Cultural Marxism and the social control mechanism that is identity-PC politics

    I want to see depoliticisation. May and Marxist Labour want to politicise our every waking moment to assert control over what we say, what we see and how we think.

    1922. Someone, anyone dismantle this committee and purge the Tory party

    Can’t be there as I’m to go to London tomorrow. But may you have great success in getting across the message that we voted, we now have to go, and the economy and traditional politics need to stand in line after democracy is sanity is to be restored in government.

    Good luck for Friday evening, Sir John.

    I am sure it will go well and if some sort of video of the event is made, please advise the source in your diary.

    I wish you well with your lecture. The more who understand what is happening in this struggle for democracy the better. In days of yore the BBC would probably have devoted an hour to it with questions after, but today they are part af the problem.

      Your BBC point is interesting … their irrelevance becomes more obvious on a daily basis. I mean, do we really need a mid-twentieth century propaganda organisation?

        The BBCs irrelevance to the body politic as a whole is their choice. That they push a guardianista left wing line is their policy for news and current affairs. It does creep into other areas but limited as yet. As presently run they serve no Reithian purpose, which is why I advocate selling them off to become an independant broadcaster dependant on advertising for future revenue.We can then reduce the licence fee markedly and get on with watching what they do well. The penny might drop among what is left that they stop broadcasting political messages.

    I wish you well for this afternoon.I would love to be there, but unfortunately, distance, and other factors do not permit it.

    A few years ago, I went to a similar occasion with Charles Moore, when he wrote the first part of the autobiography of Margaret Thatcher. It was so interesting. Would that the Lady was here today.

    I will get your book from Amazon later today.

    Can’t attend your launch but ordered the book from Amazon … I wonder if we’re looking at the end of two party tyranny politics and moving onto to plurality politics? Farage is always talking about an earthquake in British politics but I wonder if there’s something more … I see this as part of Paul Virilio’s ‘dromology’ … but I’m looking forward to your take on it.

    So when did you become anti-establishment? Was it at Oxford, or in your big city bank…or during your multiple decades as a Tory MP? It seems you’ve got on very well within the establishment while being opposed to it all the time. Perhaps your book will explain all. Actually, it dawned on me the other day that, of course, the real establishment (which really runs things) always wins. Brexit or no Brexit, it remains in control. You politicians are actually being used by the real establishment, whether you realise it or not, to keep the public divided and confused – especially over Brexit. It needs us to be divided and confused so that it can implement the next technological revolution which will transform work for millions and reduce prosperity for all except those who understand the systems. Brexit, though bad, is just a tool for weakening public and politics. You’re just assisting this but I don’t believe you’re really aware of it.

    Reply The book explains the battle between populists and the establshment. It is not about me

    Ruth Davidson says prospects for the Tories in Scotland regarding the EU Elections are dire. She is right in that.
    If I were a Scot living in Scotland I wouldn’t know which way to turn.
