The Original Non-PC Politician

Godfrey Bloom was UKIP’s party whip for a long time, and for many years served as a member of the European parliament for UKIP. Ironically, although the party has solid electoral support in the UK, it has yet to make an inroad into Westminster due to the “first past the post” electoral system. It has always had a much greater representation in Strasbourg – at an institution it would prefer to abolish.

Similar to UKIP boss Nigel Farage, Bloom has always been quite outspoken. If you think Donald Trump is non-PC, you probably haven’t heard Bloom yet. He is an anti-politician in a way – in fact, he doesn’t believe “politician” should even be a job, and we can only agree wholeheartedly. Bloom lost his party whip status at UKIP and later left the party, after he slapped a journalist with a brochure, called women “sluts” (actually, this incident has to be contextualized as you will see – he told a joke – but it certainly was an impolitic “foot-in-mouth” moment) and objected to the UK government borrowing huge amounts of money and then sending aid to “Bongo-Bongo Land”. He was perfectly right of course. No aid should be sent to bongo-bongo land (further below we are letting him explain why).

Enemy of the State

Anyway, we are sure Bloom is not without his faults, but the following excerpt of his work in Strasbourg is surely enough to forgive him a great many trespasses (both real and imagined ones). You will immediately see why the establishment at the EUSSR and elsewhere has always hated him with a passion. Enjoy:

 

Godfrey Bloom on who the biggest tax avoiders in Europe really are

 

Obviously our new feudal overlords don’t like it when such things are said about them in public, even though they are 100% true. These people – professional politicians and career bureaucrats most of them – are essentially a caste of modern day robber knights. As Bloom notes, most of them are really psychopaths, a conclusion we have come to independently some time ago already.

The 20 minute interview with Bloom following below is really quite interesting. Kudos to the interviewer for doing what journalists have not always afforded Bloom, namely giving him room to make his points by remaining courteous, not interrupting and refraining from showing pro-establishment bias. Readers may have noticed that most journalists are these days extremely tame and almost embarrassingly polite when speaking to establishment-approved politicians. After all, they need to “preserve access” to those in power. However, as soon as someone is seriously challenging the establishment, they quickly transform into rabid weasels that go mercilessly on the attack.

To wit, the treatment Donald Trump gets in the US media. Not only is he hounded for his lack of political correctness, but his main failing is that he has his establishment competitors on the run and is striking fear into their hearts. How dare he attract huge crowds, while the best-funded neo-con warmonger and all-around colorless buffoon Jeb Bush has trouble getting even a few hundred people to voluntarily get bored to death by his platitudes?

But let us return to Mr. Bloom – here is the aforementioned interview, which he gave after his exit from UKIP:

 

A wide-ranging interview with Godfrey Bloom

 

As you can see, Bloom has the number of the “anthropogenic global warming” scammers too. What’s not to like? Below is a small collection of short videos of Bloom telling the eurocrats a few home truths.

Here is laying into the global warming scam and tax harmonization in combination:

 

A cartel of thieves

 

In this clip he is reminding everybody again that no global warming has actually happened for some time (a fact that is as a rule studiously ignored by mainstream journalists and establishment politicians alike):

 

Who are the deniers?

 

Here is a quick remark by Bloom on fractional reserve banking, central banks and moral hazard:

 

Bloom on the inherent insolvency of the fractionally reserved banking system

 

Another one on fractional reserve banking:

 


“What does it mean when banks are supposed to be able to withstand shocks”

 

Here Bloom explains why governments all over the show are going broke:

 

Broke and immoral

 

A brief list of the ways in which the EU resembles the expired Soviet Union:

 

Our children and grandchildren will curse us…

 

You can find many more videos featuring Bloom on you-tube – almost all of them are either entertaining or informative or both.

 

Conclusion

It’s a great pity Godfrey Bloom likely won’t return to the political scene. In its attempt to become more “mainstream” following its electoral successes, UKIP has unfortunately begun to regard him as a liability (he nevertheless still seems to be supporting the party). Outspoken (anti-)politicians of his kind are rare and it was great fun to have him around.

Dear Readers!

You may have noticed that our so-called “semiannual” funding drive, which started sometime in the summer if memory serves, has seamlessly segued into the winter. In fact, the year is almost over! We assure you this is not merely evidence of our chutzpa; rather, it is indicative of the fact that ad income still needs to be supplemented in order to support upkeep of the site. Naturally, the traditional benefits that can be spontaneously triggered by donations to this site remain operative regardless of the season - ranging from a boost to general well-being/happiness (inter alia featuring improved sleep & appetite), children including you in their songs, up to the likely allotment of privileges in the afterlife, etc., etc., but the Christmas season is probably an especially propitious time to cross our palms with silver. A special thank you to all readers who have already chipped in, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Regardless of that, we are honored by everybody's readership and hope we have managed to add a little value to your life.
