Hello, my name is Ahmed. I am about to write my answers regarding your questions about myself and what my points of view are.
1) I am Turkish ultraconservative, who hates Liberals, Socialists, Social-Democrats, and basically anything with socialism or revolutionary views added to the equation.
2) I believe in the hope of creating a strict government that crushes opposition quickly and efficiently, does its best to fix any problems or issues within the system and preserves its influence through a wide range of conversions.
3) If I could own direct government policy, it would be mainly on the political and economic aspects of the government. My reasoning behind this would be the fact that the economics would make a grand boost to how the government handles funding and money to people that struggle in their normal lives. From a political standpoint, it would be a strong conservative and non-progressive ideology, perfectly capable of holding traditional values, have strong religious beliefs, and boost morale through the usage of propaganda and fair government handling.
4) I am proud of the fact that I follow a strict conservative view on society, and want an absolute change in corrupt, modern governments and societies. My biggest regrets are being a hardcore liberal in my early days, and even going as close to becoming a strong Marxist supporter (which I highly despise and go against now) and become highly leftist.
5) Lastly, I would like to be remembered as a very smart, educated and intellectual person that has a strong anti-liberal standpoint on modern-day politics and governments, and represent a change and criticism on their subjects.
Glory to the right wing ideology, and God bless Mosley!
Nation Revisited: Our sister blog 'European Outlook' has an article this month entitled 'A Broad Church' which describes our diverse readership. Ahmed appears to belong to the traditionalist faction exemplified by Julius Evola.
The Five Question are: (1) Who are you? (2) What do you believe in? (3) If you could direct government policy what would you do? (4) What are you proud of and what do you regret (5) How would you like to be remembered? Readers are invited to submit their answers.
The lockdown has forced us to use technology. Working from home has been so successful that many firms will continue using it when the pandemic is over. With the latest computer technology files can be accessed remotely and there's no need to go to the office. The way we work dates back to Victorian times when clerks sitting at high desks were overseen by grim-faced supervisors. It's time for a change.
Recently I noticed a lump the size of a golf ball on my elbow. I looked it up on the Internet and it appeared to be a bursitis. My doctor's surgery was not working normally because of the crisis, but I was able to consult him by phone. I sent him a picture of my elbow and he confirmed the diagnosis and told me not to worry about it because it would go in a few days; which it did. This got me thinking that many visits to the doctor could be handled the same way, by using the technology at our disposal.
Even that bastion of tradition the House of Commons has used the latest equipment to conduct its business. It's inexcusable that MPs still shuffle into lobbies to vote, when it could be done instantly by pressing a button. Electronic voting is just as democratic and a lot less trouble. But the leader of the commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg, vowed that they would return to their old ways: "as soon as possible."
A few weeks ago I complained that modern methods are dehumanising, but I know that change is inevitable. Tradition is important but it can go too far. When Hirohito, the Emperor of Japan, announced his nation's surrender, he did so in an ancient form of Japanese that nobody speaks anymore. Most of his subjects didn't know what he was talking about.
And I like the story of the punk rocker who was on trial. He had spikey pink hair, ripped jeans, high laced boots, and a jacket covered in zip fasteners. The judge, who was wearing a powdered wig, a fur-trimmed black robe, and silk tights said to him: "Do you know how ridiculous you look?"
This is what happens when we get stuck in the past. When this virus has run its course, and we rebuild our economy, we must use the latest technology and forget about old-fashioned ways of doing things. If we cling to tradition we will be overtaken by more progressive nations.
Individuals are entitled to hold whatever opinions they like but political parties should stick to practical policies. They all want to make us healthier, cleverer, more comfortable, and richer than ever before. And all these objectives are achievable but some parties have aspirations that are impossible and therefore pointless.
The lunatic left want to abolish the monarchy and nationalise the land, but it will never happen because the British public are fond of the monarchy and proud of their homes. They don't really own their own flats and houses but they would be upset if the government laid claim to them. Republicanism in the UK is a pointless policy.
At the other extreme, the far-right wants to round up and deport the UK's non-white population. This is logistically, politically, economically, and practically impossible, but that doesn't stop them. We don't have enough policemen or soldiers to round them up, we don't have enough boats and planes to carry them, we don't have the political and military clout to do such a thing, and we don't have any countries willing to take them. Nevertheless, John Tyndall (pictured) clung to 'repatriation' until the day he died.
'National Independence' is another impossibility. We are leaving the EU but nobody seriously believes that we will become a self-sufficient country that can feed and defend itself. We will end up in a free trade arrangement like Norway and Switzerland; members of the EU in all but name. Ultimately, Brexit will be another pointless policy.
The powers that be don't like political extremes and nor do the British people. Reforms take a long time and are granted grudgingly. We still have a measure of free speech but Internet warriors can't compete with the mass media or overturn generations of apathy.
John Amery gave his life in the mistaken belief that the British people would put racial solidarity with Germany over their loyalty to Churchill's Britain. But they chose insular nationalism in 1939; just as they did in 2016. He wrote in 'England and Germany':
There can be little doubt now that if the war was started in 1939, when England was so unprepared and unready to fight, it may in some measure be attributed to the fact that the City and the extra-national elements were afraid that in peace time under democratic conditions the truth of the need for Anglo-German alliance would become so manifest to the public as to prevent the eventual outbreak of 'their' war at all.
The current situation is just as grim as it was then. We are facing economic collapse and an influx of refugees from Hong Kong. But nothing lasts forever, not even Boris Johnson's shamelessly populist government with its massive eighty seat majority. Those who voted Tory to stop immigration and take back control of our economy will eventually see the error of their ways. Let us pray that it's not too late.
Patriot Traitors by Adrian Weale, published by Viking in 2001, available from Amazon
This book is well worth reading. It covers Sir Roger Casement the British diplomat who put his Irish heritage above his loyalty to the British Empire. He was arrested on a remote Irish beach in 1916 after being landed from a German submarine. Like most Irish rebellions the Casement episode was a disaster from the start. His attempt to recruit prisoners of war for an Irish brigade to take part in an uprising failed dismally; the ship carrying arms and ammunition never arrived, the rebels in Ireland didn't expect him, and far from greeting him as a liberator the locals promptly handed him over to the police. Casement was an overt homosexual in a world of discretion; a romantic with little common sense. He was hanged on 3rd August 1916 at Pentonville Prison, North London. That's what happens when emotion triumphs over logic; a lesson that the Brexiteers have yet to learn.
The other subject of Adrian Weale's book is John Amery (pictured). He was the son of Leo Amery, a high ranking Cabinet Minister who served in Churchill's wartime government. John was a rebel from the earliest age who always made a point of defying authority. He led a colourful life which included gun running for Franco in the Spanish Civil War, broadcasting for the Germans and the Italians during WW2, and trying to recruit British prisoners of war to fight for Germany on the Russian Front. A project that was as unsuccessful as Casement's attempt twenty years earlier.
The author dismisses John Amery as a drunk and a cheat but his book 'England and Europe' tells a different story. He believed passionately in a united Europe which he thought could only be achieved by a German victory. He was captured by Partisans in Northern Italy in 1945 and handed over to a young British officer named Alan Whicker, who later became a famous TV star. John Amery was hanged in Wandsworth Prison on 19th December 1945.
The word 'traitor' is frequently used to describe anyone with dissenting opinions. Decorated servicemen from both world wars were falsely accused of treason for promoting peace. And anyone who stands against Brexit is automatically called a traitor. The word has lost its meaning and become a term of political abuse. Roger Casement and John Amery may have been traitors in the legal sense but they were idealists who died for their beliefs.
The Cambridge spies; Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess, Kim Philby, John Cairncross, and Anthony Blunt, who gave vital information to the Soviet Union have been rehabilitated by the liberal establishment. The current view is that they were sincere men working for peace. Perhaps Roger Casement and John Amery should also be forgiven?
The appeal court decision to allow the Isis bride Shamima Begum to return to the UK is deeply unpoular with the British public, but not even the Daily Mail has called for her execution

I recently watched The Blue Lamp on the Talking Pictures TV channel. This epic film was released in 1950. It was directed by Basil Dearden, produced by Michael Balcon, and starred Jack Warner, Jimmy Hanley and Dirk Bogarde. It was made in co-operation with the Metropolitan Police and showed London as it was when the police were our heroes. That was before we were 'enriched' with Afro-Asians and made to feel guilty for conquering half the world. Most men had served in the armed forces and discipline was an accepted part of life. If a policeman told you to stop you stopped, there was no arguing and he seldom had to use his truncheon.
Seventy years later the police look more like soldiers with their flak jackets and machine guns. If they stop a suspect they expect to be attacked and they use restraints developed by the Israeli Defence Force which can be fatal. The latest round of Black Lives Matter riots was sparked by the death of a career criminal in the United States, but the police all over the world are faced with the same problems and use the same tactics.
Unfortunately there's no going back. We can't return to the good old days and we have to accept a police force that's armed to the teeth. The Black Lives Matter mob attack the police as part of their racist agenda but most sensible people, including law abiding Blacks and Asians, respect the police and support them.
Prof Roger Pearson
I was pleased to receive an e-mail from Prof Roger Pearson who lives in the United States. Anyone who challenges the liberal consensus is dismissed as a moron, but Roger Pearson is not so easy to put down. He earned a master's degree in economics and sociology, and a PhD in anthropology from London University. He founded the Northern League in 1958 and published 'The Northlander' which described it purpose as:
'The Northlander' warned against petty nationalism and stressed the importance of kinship.
After I posted a tribute to John Bean in last month's 'Nation Revisited' the professor contacted me. I informed him that JB had suffered a stroke and this was his reply:.
Bill, Thank you, though I am sorry for the news. I will contact him.
I fear our world belongs to the past, but though the world will never see its like again, and even a mongrelized humanity may not survive, the fact is our world existed, and we were a band of kindred that fought for it.
What has existed and has been can never be undone. It represents a peak of human achievement and of noble behaviour, and will always be so. We can take heart in that. John had a heart that beats like mine, as did others that you and I remember. I am grateful to have had the honor of knowing them and striving with them in the same noble cause. We did not disgrace our forebears.
Keep well yourself if you can. Roger
