I DO get fed up with people telling me I’m merely being paranoid when I discuss the decline of the UK and its society.
These people (and I’m delighted to say there are now far fewer than in the past!) seem to forget, that in my dual role as a working entertainer and columnist, I speak to, and am contacted by, a tremendous number of so-called ‘ordinary folk,’ from all walks of British life.
I can tell you quite categorically, they are all totally peed off with what is happening to our once great country.
They are sick of the leniency shown toward criminals, they are sick of the laws and ‘human rights’ apparently favouring ethnic and other minorities and they are heartily sick of Islamic bigots who seem to be able to get away with just about anything.
The tolerant mood of the British public is undoubtedly changing. Most have been quiet up to now; almost afraid to air their views in case of being accused of bigotry or racism. Well you can hardly blame them, when the ranting of their enemies (and in my opinion, they are enemies) are still allowed to be aired just about anywhere, and even when they contain blatant, hate-provoking anti-British rhetoric, are still seemingly ‘blind-eyed’ by the authorities. In my cabaret spot, I have a couple of fairly light digs at the ‘changing face’ of Britain. When I first used the remarks they were met mainly by an almost embarrassed silence. As time went on the odd chuckle crept in.
The same remarks are now greeted not only by laughter, but often applause.
A more accurate barometer for the changing attitude of the British public would be hard to imagine.
I suggest Dave and the team start speeding up the instigation of a few of their election promises, before a thoroughly fed-up British public begin to take to the streets. If that happens then (heaven forbid) the prophecies of Enoch Powell may well finally come to pass.
Have a good week. Try to lend a helping hand and, whatever ya do, always keep the faith. Love Leapy.
