If Alt-Right Means Nazi Cosplay, I am Not Alt-Right

A brief comment on Charlottesville –

When the term alt-Right began to be used it referred to the legitimate groundswell of Conservative activity against political correctness and extreme leftism. That cause remains worthy.

However, I am a Conservative and my grandfather was awarded a medal for shooting Nazis. Costumed Hitler-enthusiasts and Klansman are an affront to all decent people. Alt-Right cannot mean “Alt-Reich” if it is to have a future as a meaningful movement.

The election of Donald Trump in the United States and the vote for Brexit in the United Kingdom reflected a desire for a serious conversation about national identity and suppression of free speech by a complacent and bullying left-wing establishment.

If that conversation is to happen then decent people need to distance themselves from the extremists. Vox Day has rightly condemned the alt-Reich and I for one could not agree more.

A Figure Labour Does Not Want to Share

A picture of a dark background with the Witchfinder, a snail with a Labour logo and a caption blaming Labour for train lateness at Kings Cross.

Trains late? Blame Labour.

The Witchfinder travels regularly to and from Kings Cross St Pancras rail station. Whilst every major political party bears some share of responsibility for the decline in train performance, government figures show that train performance fell the most sharply under Labour, and have never fully recovered.

Britain invented trains, with the first public locomotive railway opening in 1825. Why can they not run on time? A quick factoid for the Witchfinder’s readers – the government measures train performance as an official national statistic (Public Performance Measure or PPM). The PPM in 1997? 90%. The PPM in 2001 after four years of Labour? 75%. Even today it has never fully recovered. The lesson? Don’t vote Labour.
