The video featured below brings you perspicacious commentary from the always interesting Jeff Taylor that is well worth checking out.
To give you some context and some idea of the state of play of the con game referred to as “Democracy”, we present the following rough statistics.
At the recent by-election at Uxbridge and South Ruislip referred to by Jeff in the video:
The Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency has about 67 thousand people eligible to vote. The percentage who actually felt sufficiently motivated by the policies on offer by the various parties to actually vote for one of them was way less than half at about 46%.
Of those who actually voted, the Conservatives got 13, 960 votes (45.2%) and Labour got 13 470 (43.6%).
In other words, the Conservatives won by getting 13,960 people to vote for them out of 67 thousand and both parties were only supported by about 20% of the people.
But of those 20% who voted for, say, the Conservatives how many are truly wholeheartedly enamoured of the party’s ideals and policies, if they even know what they are or voted Conservative simply because they liked the alternatives even less and wanted to “keep the other lot out” or some such thing?
In truth it is impossible to know. We can guess that the 20% contained substantially less than enthusiastic support but we don’t know to what degree.
The same applies to the roughly 20% who voted for the other main party, Labour.
What might give us a clue is the statistics for signed-up membership of each party – how many people have sufficient conviction regarding a party to the degree that they could bother to sign up and join it? How much real grass roots support do they have? It’s not infallible but membership numbers would at least give us some sort of crude barometer of true support.
Well, the UK contains roughly 46 million voters.
The Conservative Party has about 172 000 members, which is under 0.4% of the electorate.
The Labour Party has about 432 000 members, which is about 0.9% of the electorate.
This suggests very weak support for either party.
In the last general election only 67% of voters felt strongly enough to vote and the Conservatives won with around 14 million votes, ie any kind of support from voters amounting to a mere 30% of the People.
This is very far from a majority and can hardly be considered the “will of the People” to enact their manifesto’s promises, should they even keep to it.
Of course when it comes to actions such as Net Zero, surrendering sovereignty to the WHO, immigration policy and so forth there is no mandate from the People at all.
Bearing all that in mind, check out when Jeff Taylor has to say.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
