Letter to Editor: Reform UK for a better future

Elections / Wed 12th Jun 2024 at 01:13pm

Dear Editor,

I HEAR mention that people call Reform far right, this is an error that the BBC made and have since apologised for.

Please do not listen to the BBC or even one medium for your information on a party.

Look at the manifesto or someone who goes step by step through the manifesto to show what each part of the parties plans are.

Reform are far more than a party interested in protecting the borders. They have serious policies on Tax, NHS, Energy and our armed forces.

As far as the energy is concerned they do not agree with Net Zero which in my humble opinion is a waste of money as the cost of trying to achieve net zero will bankrupt the country and have almost no effect on climate.

The other aspect of Reform that is often overlooked is its very generous tax incentives for workers. I think that if you take a closer look at Reform and do not have preconcieved ideas clouded by the BBC (who have had to apologies) and get to the facts you might be pleasantly surprised.

I for one will vote for them because they are the party that stand against the World Economic Forum (WEF) who I believe have no ones interest but their own and who wants to be governed from abroad anyway?

Reform UK for a better future.

Kind regards

Terrence King

Reform are far right, it isn't just the BBC who said so. The leader is far right and has a history of questionable statements and lets not forget his UKIP breaking point poster, thought of to contribute an increase in racial crime in the UK. Many other Reform candidates have recently been caught sharing racist material, far right ideas and promoting conspiracy theories. Many of the people they attract are also far right. It's simple, people call it as they see it *shrug*

If voting Reform and wanting the old UK back makes me far right then so be it. Just a bunch of labels at the end of the day.

"We wont are country back" - it's always ironically the anti-immigration lot who have the weakest grasp of the English language!

What ever your views and political position there seems to be no credible candidates or parties that are prepared to face this nations problems head on. We are not the powerhouse we once were yet the state still spends as if we are because the public demand it. We have an ageing population and not enough young to look after the old as we move forward. The state regularity spends more than gdp each year which is not sustainable, yet some people think you can tax your way out of that one. I suspect most people feel they have 2 choices, slim and none and slim just left town. The truly sad thing is as history shows us, nothing will change until something goes seriously wrong even though all the warning signs are plain to see.

Reform are not 'far right'. They are more centrist than the Conservative government's of the 1980s. It's laughable to call them far right. Only an idiot would do so.

Jim

Jamie - those sort of posts are obviously fake. We've been seeing them for several days now.

The only people who label are those who are scared! Labour and their Hope Not Hate cronies have been at it for well over a decade! Ironic really when the only two Parties in this Country ever investigated for racism are the BNP and Labour!!! Neither UKIP nor Reform nor SDP not the English Democrats nor Heritage nor anyone else actually talking about immigration are racist. Because the debate is about space not race, and hence pressure on wages, housing and public services. Only those not prepared to debate the issue shout labels at those who do!!!

Any white, British person of working class stock thinking of voting Labour should be reminded of what they are about these days. Here we have the Welsh Labour Party pushing an agenda to 'de-colonise' a Welsh mining museum, and have more content explaining how horrific all those white people were back in the day. Much more interesting to your average middle class Labour voter than stories about all of those tiresome Welsh miners who worked themselves to death in order to power the industrial revolution. https://www.gbnews.com/news/welsh-national-coal-museum-woke-decolonising

I am certain Reform will distance themselves from racists by investing each case and kicking racist out of their political party.

Jim

James, they have only kicked out a couple once the press has got hold of it, they admitted they don't vet, coz they don't need to. Am amused too that people think reform will make anything as it was! The UK has already changed so much, they can't turn back the clock. I also think Mark is in denial.

Brian Aston
2024-06-12 18:58:59

Exactly which Britain do you want back? The pre-brexit Britain? The "things can only get better 90s of Tony Blair", The Yuppy boom of the eighties? Maybe the good old 70s when almost all tv presenters were doing naughty things with Children? Or perhaps the swinging 60s? Maybe you are harping back to the good old days of the blitz? Or perhaps the Victorian era? Or maybe you are harping back to 55BC, before those pesky Romans invaded which was probably the last time that Britain was truly for the British?

Me, Harlow
2024-06-12 20:56:40

I think we all know what they want and that's a certain demographic to not be in the UK.

Pedro
2024-06-12 21:15:21

Mark is absolutely spot on in his assessment, The far left are as big a threat to the UK yet seem to have a free pass by the media, and anyone who questions them is quickly labeled "racist" or "phobic" in an attempt to silence any reasonable debate

pete
2024-06-12 23:27:52

My god people are very naive, a vote for reform is a vote for the far right, its completely a nazi party run by king nazi rat farage, look him up do your research, he's done nothing for Britain only cost us billions in lost investment and a failed brexit... A vote for him is also doing our old soldiers who died in the 2 great wars a disservice, they died fighting against Nazis.

What a load of rubbish Pete, just because someone has different political views to the left doesn't make them wrong, the Left and it total intolerance to anyone who doesn't support their agenda are why the right are pushing back and on the rise throughout Europe, Even Labour leader Starmer is aware of the dangers of the Far left and is trying hard to move labour to the centre ground

My God. It's shifted from 'far right' to 'Nazis' now. It seems that anyone who questions uncontrolled immigration or says that a person with a penis is a man, should be brought to trial at Nüremburg.

@Dave calling others idiots when it takes literally five minutes of googling things like 'Farage Muslims' or 'Farage anti-semitic' and seeing the endless lists of articles will prove that they are indeed far right. If your attention span can handle it, theres a great 10 minute expose on Farage by Led By Donkeys that explains it all, give it a go. I suspect you won't as you're already set in your racist ways.

Dave
2024-06-13 08:55:14

@FCK NZS - Mr Farage merely pointed out that a growing number of Muslims in this country do not subscribe to British values. I'm sure all of who saw the behaviour of Muslims at the recent council elections - blocking candidates from entering the hustings areas, voting on religious lines and shouting 'allahu akbar' and 'we're coming to get you' after George Galloway's wins will take the same opinion. These are not British values. Recent polling by JL Partners showed that 23% of 18-24 year old Muslims living in Britain believe that Jihad is a good thing. Significant numbers of Muslims in general also believe that Sharia law should be introduced in the UK. It's not racist or 'far right' to call out these disturbing facts. It's the duty of anyone who treasures this country.

Mark Gobell
2024-06-13 09:07:39

@Pete - who, speaking of Nigel Farage, claims : "A vote for him is also doing our old soldiers who died in the 2 great wars a disservice, they died fighting against Nazis." FYI Pete, Rifleman S/33851 Charles William Gobell was killed at the Battle of Jerusalem in 1917, where the Rifle Brigade were part of the British forces fighting against the Ottoman Empire. Using your logic Pete, should folk not vote for Muslims or anyone that supports or identifies with or promotes Islam?

Mark Gobell
2024-06-13 09:10:25

@Pete : FYI - National Socialism did not exist during WW1.

Mark Gobell
2024-06-13 09:36:32

@Pete : You attempt to form an argument which is predicated on the sacrifices that the British people made in both world wars. You do this, presumably with a straight face, without even mentioning the idea that their sacrifice was predicated, rightly or wrongly, on preserving our democratic way of life, where each and every citizen was supposed to be able to speak and act freely, according to their conscience, within the law. It might benefit you if you were at least cognisant of the following, important maxim : “I disagree with what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it”. This fundamental principle has underpinned the idea of freedom of expression in a democracy, but appears to be missing from your rather breathless "analysis" ...

In fact the only reason our economy has grown over the last 50 years is due to immigration.

James Gamble
2024-06-13 09:57:43

Mark it started in 1919 dangerously close.

David Forman
2024-06-13 10:21:08

Muslims are the new targets. I remember growing up in Dagenham in the 1960s and the targets were the Blacks, Irish and "no dogs". Before that, it was the Jews. Just a useful means for the ruling class to atomise the latent power of the working class. If we had lots of aliens landing on Earth, then they would replace Muslims being targeted for racism.

Mark Gobell
2024-06-13 10:44:24

Indeed David. There has always been resistance to mass immigration. The only mystery for me is why the left insist that this understandable, personal and societal reaction to mass immigration is wrong. This begs the question : What reaction to mass immigration would the left deem acceptable? Where has there ever been a calm, indifferent acceptance of newcomers into any society? If the forces promoting mass immigration wore uniforms and used bayonets, you and your ilk would call it colonialism ...

Jim
2024-06-13 11:08:55

@ James Gamble - regarding, "In fact the only reason our economy has grown over the last 50 years is due to immigration." This is simply not true. An immigrant must work and earn over £20k in order to make even the most miniscule contribution to GDP, and those with non-working wives & children would need to earn over £60k. This is of course if they work at all.

Trace
2024-06-13 11:09:28

@Dave. Sharia councils are already in the UK, they do not supersede UK law tho, nor will they. Also, why do you only pay attention to the few nutters? What about the many peaceful muslims of which are the majority? There are nutters that are loud in relegions and movements, look at the just stop oil mob. They do not speak for or represent vast majority of the UK, they are just loud.

Dave
2024-06-13 11:47:49

@Trace - it's not just a few Muslims. If you think 23% of young Muslims thinking Jihad is a good thing is nothing to worry about then I don't know what to say. A recent ICM poll also showed that 40% of the Muslim population in the UK overall would likwe to see Sharia Law implemented. Not the Sharia Council that you have described, but enforceable laws that FORCE the entire UK population to follow Islamic laws. This is incredibly concerning, and it will happen at some point in the future, because they Muslim population in the UK is growing at a far more rapid rate than any other. It's interesting that Jews have the Beth Din - which is very similar to the Sharia Council, and yet we never hear of a single Jew who wants to enforce Jewish law onto the entire population. People need to wake up.

Trace
2024-06-13 12:15:22

Dave, the opinion poll was not recent. Also, it was aspects of sharia law, and hey, guess what? They can wish for what they like, they will not get it. No gov will allow sharia law to supersede UK law. There are a few things I would like too, but never gonna happen.

Trace

Reform Ltd is just Nigel Farage's latest toy. They are a complete fraud. They are obsessed with Northern Ireland, not Harlow. Ben Habib made a pact with the True Ulster Voice. But Farage doesn't seem to understand that because he's backing Sammy Wilson and Ian Paisley of the DUP. It doesn't matter anyway, they'll take some money off gullible supporters and maybe win some votes, then Farage will jack it all in and be off to Mar-a-Lago to help his mate Donald Dumpster.

James Gamble
2024-06-13 15:20:14

Jim the increase in population has increased the economy.

Jim
2024-06-13 15:36:13

James - that has not been true for over 20 years now. GDP per capita has stagnated precisely because population growth has been so rapid in that period. In short, the relationship between economic growth and population growth has broken down because we have added far too many people to the population during that period. It simply must stop.

Jim
2024-06-13 16:23:35

To add to my post above - the UK population in 2004 was 59,995,851. It is now 67,961,439. That is an almost 14% rise in the population in 20 years. It's the biggest 20 year rise in modern history by a long, long way. Between 1964 and 1984 it went from 53,861,500 to 56,568,253. From 1984 to 2004 it rose by a further 3,427,598. Since 2004 it has risen by 7,965,588.

James Gamble
2024-06-13 18:35:39

Dave. Muslims saying they would fight for their religion is no different to Christians fighting for their religion. How many times did we fight for our God, king and country? That is what it has to do with one of the Dave on this post who asked if young Muslims saying they agree with Jehad.

Dave
2024-06-13 19:24:22

James Gamble : There's no comparison. Apart from maybe the holy wars of the crusades a thousand years ago. Every war we've been involved in since has been primarily about King & Country, with God thrown in to make people feel better. Jihad is Muslim holy war. About nothing other than a religion. Muslims vs x.

Me, Harlow

Personally if worried about immigration, I would be more concerned about the E.Europe ones that run the drug gangs, guns, people smuggling and forcing women into prostitution. Far higher crime rate and negative impact on people in the UK. I guess it is a skin colour thing deep or not so deep down.

@ Mark Gough Absurd to conflate Reform (ahead of the Tories) with long-defunct UKIP. Reform has bad apples - whom it then rids itself of as they come to light. The UKIP of recent years is the opposite. All decent and intelligent people have left, only rogues and fools remain (or rejoin!).

James Gamble
2024-06-14 08:26:20

Dave Northern Ireland troubles were religion based, Israel Gazza is religion based, even some football rivalries are religion based. Then there was Nazi Germany that exterminated 10 million Jews in the 1930/1940s.The question is would anyone today fight for their religion?

James Gamble

Nigel Farage is married to a German lady and now going out with a French lady so if he meets an Italian lady he will have his own European Union.
