New Culture Forum Urges Its Viewers to Abandon Tories over Wokeness

I’m sorry I haven’t posted much today, but hopefully normal service will resume tomorrow. As the Beeb always used to say whenever they suffered a technical fault right in the middle of something you really, really wanted to watch. Things may be looking very bleak for the Tories as some of their traditional supporters may start abandoning them for the rival parties. Or simply abandon them, full stop. The New Culture Forum posted a very short video today in which their main man, Peter Whittle, reported that the Tory party was offering its membership lessons in racial awareness, microaggressions and ‘White resentment’. This was Critical Race Theory wokeness, and showed that the party has been captured. Whittle therefore urged his organisation’s viewers and supporters not to vote Tory, even if that meant not voting at all.

Last night GB News, Reform, or both were celebrating three Tory councillors switching to Tice’s band of crazed rightists. The Lotus Eaters also have not been impressed by the Tories. They’ve hosted an American comedian on their channel, and have just posted a video about how he finds the British Tories ‘cringe’. Meanwhile, Labour enjoys a 29 point lead ahead of the Tories.

I don’t know how big the numbers of people leaving the Tories for Reform will be. Probably smaller than expected, considering the way UKIP fizzled out despite all the hoo-ha about it breaking the mould of British politics, becoming the fourth biggest party and so on. I’ve no problem with them taking votes away from the Tories if that weakens them still further and allows Labour to get in.

But I definitely don’t want them to become a major political force pulling the country further to the right.

    I think I heard somewhere that Jacob Rees Mogg has got a job hosting a TV show on GB News, no idea if there’s any truth in that, I’ve never seen the channel and never will.

      There’s a video on YouTube from one of the internet right-wingers cheering him on and saying that he has. I haven’t watched it, and don’t intend to watch anything starring him on GB News.

    What is the use of a 29 point lead when Starmer has abandoned traditional Labour values and offers only a diluted version of what the tories are dishing out already? Time for a grand return by Corbyn? If only!

  3. Mark Pattie Says:

    I can see Reform gaining a few % of the vote share in 2024. All the rest (except SDP) are too fractured to stand any chance whatsoever in the next GE. Maybe by 2028, once Labour have hopefully replaced our wretched FPTP with proportional representation.

    It was interesting to see Tice to backtrack when it seemed like he was criticising Andrew Brigden on his vaccine stance.
    A lot of Reform supporters weren’t happy and he issued a statement on Twitter about vaccinating children.

      Yup, including Paz49, another right-winger. He really threw his toys out of the pram and said he’d had it with Tice and Reform. Mind you, this is the man who put up a piece supporting the French soldiers threatening civil war and a coup unless Macron got tough with the Muslims.

      • Mark Pattie Says:

        I don’t know where Paz would go for now. Possibly Kurten’s Heritage Party or the English Democrats. He seems to be a Ukraine-“Sceptic”- and possibly even pro-Russia, given his rabid authoritarian stance. Which would put him at odds with Reform’s more libertarian principles. Plus, they’re very much pro-Zelensky.
