Blair’s Legacy. It’s Not About the General Election.
Politicians, the political Twitterati and their various assorted followers are currently obsessing about the date, timing and outcome of the next general election. The remaining 98% of the UK populace remain comatose at the prospect, but will eventually be provoked out of their slumber and around 65% of them will oblige by voting for their respective red or blue donkey.
And for what it’s worth I personally suspect that that election will be on 2nd May 2024 and that Labour will win it. If I’m right then, at least in England, it won’t even be the most significant event taking place that Thursday. It’s importance to the freedom movement will be eclipsed by the mayoral, police commissioner and perhaps the council elections taking place simultaneously. And for that bizarrely we have must thank Tony Blair.
The Blair government introduced elected mayors and police commissioners alongside other constitutional innovations such as limited House of Lords Reform and devolution to three of the four constituent nations of the United Kingdom.
Blair was not planning on laying the foundations for our future liberty. On the contrary I’m convinced he intended to introduce the enabling infrastructure for future erosion of our freedoms. How much simpler to act through individual mayors and police commissioners than be dependent on local councillors, police committees or backbench MPs. Individuals appointed by the two-party machinery would be easier to coerce and control when any local restrictions were introduced in the future.
Blair’s biography on the world Economic Forum lists the introduction of elected mayors as amongst his most noteworthy achievements. I believe he was deliberately laying the foundations for what we experienced in 2020-22. Elected Mayors led the statist charge. They campaigned for greater and earlier restrictions often under the guise of securing more funding for their areas. To my knowledge not one elected mayor or police commissioner stood up and challenged the statist narrative and covid hysteria. So, it looks like Blair’s WEF sponsored plan is working pretty well.
But there is a catch and one that I suspect the globalists have only latterly realised could be their achilles heel. As the mayoral and PC elections are for one individual it is entirely possible that an independent or small insurgent political party could capture one of these posts. It’s difficult but as you only need one candidate, £20,000 of funding and perhaps a bit of luck it’s not impossible. Contrast this with the situation at a General Election where several hundred candidates, a nationwide machinery and several £million of funding are necessary just to enter the contest nationally.
The Yorkshire Party (YP) secured nearly 10% of the vote in West Yorkshire Mayoral election in May 21, they have never managed more than 4% in a parliamentary election. YP are fully compliant with the statist narrative, they just want a bit more money for Yorkshire. But if they could do it then the potential for a genuinely insurgent candidate to do better and secure election was a real prospect. The government responded to this stark warning by changing the electoral system for mayors from supplementary vote to first past the post. According to Chloe Smith the Cabinet Office Minister this was to prevent apparently “loser candidates” from securing election (First Past the Post to be introduced for all local mayoral and police and crime commissioner elections – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk). More probably it was to try and prevent a “winner candidate” from outside of the two-party machinery securing real power. They were worried that Blair had left the back door open and their agenda might be disrupted and called out by a libertarian inclined mayor. The move to first past the post makes it harder for independents but still not impossible. The door is still ajar.
Mayors have both real world powers and a media platform and to a lesser extent so do Police Commissioners. The powers vary from mayor to mayor- depending on what local councils were willing to relinquish in return for additional funding. Most commonly they cover policing, transport and housing. These are areas of critical importance to future lockdowns, fifteen minute cities and the moves to medical and climate fascism. Just one elected mayor would have the potential power to disrupt and delay those plans. Several elected mayors acting in concert could provide effective push back. Ultimately, I believe we just have to disrupt and delay the one world agenda.
Sunak v Starmer makes little difference. Both will willingly implement the one world agenda, the pace may differ slightly but the destination is the same. No other party or movement has the infrastructure or support from the legacy media to make any meaningful impact at a general election.. Reform UK will simply split the Conservative vote and because of that I believe they will poll closer to 3% that they are getting in by elections than the 10% that some of the managed opinion polls are currently suggesting. Either way first past the post will ensure that they don’t secure any seats. Individual independent candidates with a high local profile such as Sam Lee in Hartlepool do have a real prospect of causing upsets. Independent MPs will provide a valuable platform for calling out the Uniparty narrative but they won’t change the colour or nature of the next government. The parliamentary system will isolate and marginalise them.
I’m standing to be West Yorkshire Mayor on 2nd May 2024. You can see my full manifesto at . Manifesto – Jonathan Tilt. Independent Candidate West Yorkshire Mayor 2024. (jonathan-tilt.co.uk) There will be other independent candidates such as Nick Buckley in Greater Manchester. Ideally we would have a genuine pro freedom independent candidate standing in each of the 11 mayoral and 43 police commissioner elections on 2nd May 2024. Whilst the world is focused on the general election perhaps just one or two of us might be able to slip in through the back door which Sir Tony has kindly left unlocked.
