Elites: Fools or Frauds

The following blog post about Elites: Fools or Frauds syndicated from Alex Story The Aussie Wire News’ UK Correspondent.

“We are being led by fools” wrote Professor Matt Goodwin, the author of best
seller Values, Voice and Virtue, an investigation into the growing societal
chasm between an unaccountable and sanctimonious self-proclaimed elites,
and the working people of this country, who pay their bills.

As he notes, one side sees the world as flat, borderless, and culture-free, while
the other is deeply attached to the country’s character, borders, and history.
One side represents a small percentage of the total population, the other the
vast majority.

Strangely, the political power of both sides is inversely proportional to their
actual numbers. The minority imposes its views, regulations, and laws on the majority without
relenting. At no point does that same minority feel the need to seek the consent of the
majority. Quite the opposite, to that grouping, “consent” means simply to secure all it
wants while their opponents are forbidden from speaking up. The threat of
retribution, as we know, is real: job losses, “debanking” or indeed harassment
and arrest, among other things.

Rather than working to solve the problem, our self-appointed elites continually
double-down on their bet: that the accumulation of ever more powers will be
consequence free for them.

Having conquered the heights of political power, they can do as they wish.
To them we have only one option: to accept meekly what they have in store
for us and pay for the privilege of seeing our country dismantled.

Democracy has died a while ago. They won and we lost (for the moment).
Parliament, the institution through which the voice of the electorate is
supposed to be heard, has been defanged over time.

Without checks, they can and do the exact opposite of what we want.
As a result, we should no longer pour our ire only on our political class. Most
are merely actors in a play, whose lines are written for them by others.
In theory, they have the power and the legitimacy bestowed on them by their
electoral victory; in practice, the Civil Service advances its agenda regardless of
what their supposed political masters, and the people, might want.
Our politicians might put their signature to documents and hold office, but the
power is in the hands of our permanently funded civil servants – the true
revolutionaries.

To them we owe the degrading of our armed forces, sacrificed as they are on
altar of Diversity; our open borders; our politicised police; our schools as
centres of indoctrination not of learning; and our universities’ prostitution,
selling their increasingly worthless degrees to the highest bidders.

Indeed, on this topic, our own top 20 universities were exposed as preferring
to nurture slow witted rich foreigners than poor gifted native children, as was
reported by Jonathan Calvert, investigative editor for The Times, in which he
showed that “while Britons need straight As to get onto prestigious Russell
Group degree courses, their international classmates can buy their way in”.
Consequently, our civil servants must now become the object of intense
scrutiny.

Their names, reasoning and powers must be broadly known and understood.

Conflicts of interest must be thoroughly examined, not by insiders, but by us,
the eternal outsiders. They must also become eminently sackable, with privileges that extend no
further than the average private sector worker. We must demand such powers and fight to get it. Otherwise, the descent of our country into further decrepitude is all but guaranteed.

Interestingly, multi-media platforms allow us to see behind the curtain to
gauge their calibre. Often, perhaps unsurprisingly, it is risible. As a case in point, on the topic of currency and cash, one of the most important issues facing us as free subjects, a few weeks ago Danny Krugger MP asked James Bowler, the Permanent Secretary of the Treasury a very simple
question. It was regarding the Bank of England and the Treasury’s plans to introduce a
Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) – a Digital Pound – into our economy.
“What’s the CBDC for?” asked the curious Member of Parliament for Devizes,
the beautiful Wiltshire market town.

James Bowler’s answer, if one can call it such, was shockingly vacuous.
In this interminably uncomfortable minute, interspersed with “um”, “you
know”, and nervous paper shuffling, he pronounced that “this is about being
modern”.

That was it.

There was no analysis, no context, no actual knowledge of a topic that could
easily turn our already troubled nation into a science fiction dystopia, in which
the government controls every aspect of your spending, holds your money on
its own accounts and is technologically enabled to penalise you directly and
discreetly should it choose to do so.

Indeed, the Treasury Select Committee report pointed to the real dangers
attached to the introduction of Central Banking Digital Currencies and sought
safeguards and commitments that the government “would not have access to
users’ personal data”; that the authorities would be prevented “from accessing
personal data”; and that the government would “not programme a digital
pound”, presumably to manipulate the currency remotely, targeting groups or
individuals.

Reassurances from the Bank of England or the government are worth as much
as those given to keep immigration under control, inflation at 2% or terrorist
organisations from occupying the streets of our capital every Saturday.
The digital pound will kill anonymity, give the government the ability to
“disappear” your money and block certain users from purchasing items on a
whim.

The people entrusted with keeping the commitments sought by the Treasury
Select Committee will be the likes of James Bowler. Imagine for a second what such government officials would have done with that power to those who doubted the imposition of mandates during Covid, and who have been proven right in hindsight. As it happens, James Bowden led the Covid Taskforce from October 2020. As his CV states, he was responsible for the management and leadership of the “government’s strategy to tackle the pandemic” – The biggest and most expensive policy failure in the history of our Nation.

The highest, and presumably most talented, bureaucrat in our most powerful
institution, cannot string a sentence together, explain why a digital currency is
needed, or give context to this crucial currency change. He is supposed to be one of our most impressive “experts”.I f he is, the state of our country is no surprise. Professor Matt Goodwin opined that we are being led by fools. Perhaps, he gives them too much credit.

It is much more likely that we are being led by frauds.
