Brexit Party changes name to Reform UK

Having received approval from the Electoral Commission, the Brexit Party has changed its name to Reform UK.

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage founded the Brexit Party in 2019 to contest the European Parliamentary elections at a time when it seemed possible the 2016 referendum result might be overturned or diluted.

Having won 29 European seats in that election, the party collapsed six months later when having selected almost 600 parliamentary candidates Farage agreed to withdraw from more than half of these contests in order to give Boris Johnson’s Conservatives a clear run.

This morning Farage and Brexit Party chairman Richard Tice have written to members and supporters explaining the change. In their email (seen by H&D) they write:

“We must reform our approach to Covid, the House of Lords, the Civil Service and the BBC. We need to campaign hard on reforming the voting system and critically, we must reform the economy so that it incentivises the self-employed, entrepreneurs and small businesses. Faster growth for all will be achieved by reforming our taxes, unnecessary regulation and wasteful government spending.”

This makes fairly clear that unlike UKIP, or the 2016 referendum campaign, or the Brexit Party itself, which sought to be ‘all things to all men’, the new party’s pitch is radically neo-Thatcherite, US-style libertarian.

One problem is that (with the exception of electoral reform, which Farage is promoting for self-interested reasons, as would most small parties) this pitch is similar to one wing of Boris Johnson’s cabinet – the likes of Priti Patel, Dominic Raab, Kwasi Kwarteng and Liz Truss.

Another problem is that such ‘free market’ policies would (at least in the short term) be a disaster for many of the ‘left behind’ areas of England that voted for Brexit.

The ‘Movement News’ section in the new Issue 100 of H&D being printed today includes an update on the new Reform Party, its antecedents and competitors in post-Brexit, post-Covid Britain.

‘Antisemitism’ in Glasgow as Celtic fans turn on their Israeli player

Celtic midfielder Nir Bitton playing for Israel against Croatia

The latest ‘antisemitism’ scandal is not at a traditionally ‘rightwing’ club such as Chelsea or Millwall but north of the border at Celtic – defending Scottish champions – whose fans are turning on their team as they face up to losing their title this season to vastly improved rivals Rangers.

Celtic fans are traditionally ‘leftwing’ and especially pro-IRA, with close international ties to ‘antifa’ hooligans at ultraleft clubs such as Germany’s St Pauli.

This week’s Jewish Chronicle reports that Celtic fans have targeted their Israeli midfielder Nir Bitton. Abusive messages on social media include calls for Bitton “tae be hung on the streets”.

Celtic fans have repeatedly displayed pro-Palestinian banners, sometimes leading to the club being fined by Uefa

An earlier abusive message read:
“Expose him to the worst torture the Israeli Defence Force uses on young Palestinian kids, see how much of a man he is then. Scumbag.”

Bitton was born in the Israeli port city of Ashdod and made more than a hundred appearances for his local team before signing for Celtic in 2013. He has since made 143 appearances for the soon to be ex-champions, and has thirty caps for Israel.

Before joining Celtic, Bitton completed his national service with the Israeli Army.

Superspiv Farage now backs Blair!

Former UKIP and Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage once again displayed his lack of principle this week by publicly endorsing Tony Blair as head of a vaccination drive to end the Covid pandemic!

While H&D contributors and readers hold a range of divergent views about the merits of vaccination and the nature of the pandemic, I would guess that we would all agree Tony Blair is just about the last person who should ever be entrusted with political power ever again.

Yet Farage said this week:
“It is time to have a government, and to have people leading it, who’ve got genuine talent even if they disagree on many other policy matters. …Much as I don’t like Tony Blair, he does get things done, he commands respect, he is seriously bright. Why not get people like Tony Blair involved to help us solve a national crisis?”

Brexiteers at war: Farage’s criticisms of the government are rooted in bitter splits within the 2016 referendum campaign – Farage (above left) now prefers Tony Blair to Brexiteers such as Johnson and Dominic Cummings (above right).

The truth is of course that Nigel Farage knows absolutely nothing about Covid or the various medical/scientific issues involved.

The sole reason he is now boosting Blair is his residual resentment against Boris Johnson and Johnson’s former adviser Dominic Cummings. Now that the Brexit issue has (perhaps) been resolved, Farage is looking for another headline and ludicrously hopes he might secure some influence in a Blair-led or Blair-influenced “government of national unity”.

No serious analyst imagines that any such national unity government will happen; if it did, there is next to no chance of Blair leading it; and if by some incredibly remote chance Blair did so, there is zero chance of his rewarding or promoting Farage.

The whole idea is a scam, dreamed up to impress certain weakminded voters who periodically express halfbaked notions about national unity governments.

Only one thing is interesting about this bizarre Farage statement: the fact the this superspiv of British politics seems to have calculated that there is no mileage for him in aligning with lockdown sceptics and anti-vaxxers.

Release of secret IRA document illustrates how far we have fallen

Bernard (now Lord) Donoughue in 2017: his secret 1978 correspondence about the IRA has just been published

A newly released Cabinet Office document (examined by H&D this morning) illustrates how far we have fallen since the far more principled era of the late 1970s, when a Labour government was serious about fighting terrorism.

The previously secret correspondence was between Dr Bernard Donoughue, top adviser in Prime Minister Jim Callaghan’s Downing Street, and Sir Brian Cubbon, senior civil servant at the Northern Ireland Office, responsible to Secretary of State Roy Mason.

The background was the ‘dirty protest’ by Provisional IRA terrorist prisoners at the Maze Prison near Lisburn, Northern Ireland. These terrorists had been granted “special category status” as a concession by a Conservative government in 1972, but the status was withdrawn by a Labour government in March 1976.

“Special category” had meant that the terrorists were treated more like prisoners of war rather than ordinary criminals: for example they were not required to wear prison uniforms or do prison work; they could be housed together in IRA or INLA blocks; and had extra visiting and food parcel rights compared to ‘normal’ criminal prisoners.

Most importantly from an IRA standpoint, this special category entailed a ‘political’ status, giving them some ‘respectability’ to the outside world.

Senior civil servant Sir Brian Cubbon, who was himself seriously injured by an IRA car bomb in 1976

When special category status was withdrawn, the Provos responded with a militant campaign ranging from murdering prison officers to refusing to wear prison uniform (instead wrapping themselves in blankets) and refusing to leave their cells to ‘slop out’, soiling their own cells in the so-called ‘dirty protests’.

The newly published document reveals that Dr Donoughue was approached at Downing St by an Irish trade union contact, who proposed that the government could resolve this confrontation by arranging for trade unionists to visit the prisons and for IRA prisoners to take classes in lieu of work.

The interesting part of the story is that when Donoughue approached Sir Brian Cubbon, the latter insisted that no such compromise should even be discussed, as it would amount to a surrender to IRA demands – a “slippery slope to political status”. Reflecting the principled stand taken by his ministerial master Roy Mason, Sir Brian wrote:

“There will be no concessions on the basic issue at the Maze, and there will be no negotiations directly or indirectly with the Provisionals.
“…Any contact with potential mediators on this issue is liable to be misrepresented or misinterpreted. …We are not in the business of having any contact with them.”

Donoughue’s reply from Downing St included a slightly cynical paragraph:
“I was very impressed by the confidence of your ringing declaration that we will not have any contact with the Provisionals, direct or indirect. Remembering Eoka, the PLO and various other terrorist murderers, one realises how complex these things are and how times change.”

In fact we now know that a few years earlier some of Donoughue’s ministerial masters, including then Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Home Secretary Roy Jenkins, had been in favour of the radical option of withdrawing British troops from Northern Ireland and even some form of independence and Dominion status for the Province.

And despite the official insistence of Sir Brian Cubbon and his ilk that there would be no direct or indirect contact with the Provisionals, a ‘back-channel’ for negotiations was established as early as 1973-74 between MI6 officer Michael Oatley and the Provisional IRA leadership. This eventually led to the Good Friday Agreement and the present position where the political wing of the IRA shares power at Stormont.

Festive Greetings to all Heritage and Destiny subscribers and supporters

On behalf of Peter Rushton and myself, we wish you all the very best for the festive season, whether you celebrate Christmas, the Winter Solstice or Yule. We are all members of a great family of racial nationalist brothers and sisters, and the principles that unite us at this sacred time of year are much more important than any minor differences that we may have.

Our Movement has had a pretty rough year, due to Covid and Brexit, and sadly all indications are that 2021 may be even worse. We must brace ourselves for the struggle ahead. In addition to the increased attacks on this website by left-wing hackers (who BTW have failed to bring us down since we switched server), we should expect more attacks from the enemies of Free Speech, who wish to kick us off all our social-media platforms.

But whatever comes to pass, please be assured that Heritage and Destiny magazine, will keep publishing as a hard copy, and our website will keep going online as long as our host keeps us up. We are not going anywhere, and we will adapt to continue our struggle in one form or another, no matter what obstacles our enemies throw in our path.

The next issue of Heritage and Destiny will be our 100th, and will (we hope) be printed in early January. It’s looking like it will be a bumper 40-page (compared to to the normal 24-page) issue to celebrate our anniversary, so please make sure you get a copy – and extra copies for nationalist friends.

If you are not already a subscriber please email us at heritageanddestiny@yahoo.com and we will send you a sample copy and subscription form.

And as we prepare our Traditional Dinners tomorrow, let us remember the Christmas Truce of the First World War. This truce started late on Christmas Eve 1914, when men of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) heard German troops in the trenches opposite them singing carols and patriotic songs and saw lanterns and small fir trees along their trenches. Messages began to be shouted between the trenches.

The following day, English and German Saxon soldiers met in no man’s land and exchanged gifts, took photographs and some played impromptu games of football. They also buried casualties and repaired trenches and dugouts. After Boxing Day, meetings in no man’s land dwindled out.

The truce was not observed everywhere along the Western Front. Elsewhere the fighting continued and casualties did occur on Christmas Day. Some British officers were unhappy at the truce and worried that it would undermine the fighting spirit of the Tommys to want to kill their fellow Saxons.

After 1914, the British High Command – under instructions from the usual suspects – tried to prevent any truces on a similar scale happening again, Despite this, there were some isolated incidents of Saxon soldiers holding brief truces later in the war, and not only at Christmas.

In what was known as the ‘Live and Let Live’ system, in quiet sectors of the front line, brief pauses in the hostilities were sometimes tacitly agreed, allowing both sides to repair their trenches or gather their dead.

In 1934 a Munich film studio made what became one of the most popular films of 1930s Germany – Stoßtrupp 1917 (‘Shock Troop 1917’). The closing scene of this film is set on Christmas Eve 1917 on the Western Front – three years after the 1914 Truce. This was to be the last Christmas of the war.

As can be seen in a restored online version of the film (where the final scene begins at 1h20m50s), the German filmmakers sought to capture a spirit of Anglo-German reconciliation. Click here to view the film online.

Let Saxon never kill fellow Saxon again, for the benefit of the capitalist masters. No More Brothers Wars.

I wish each and every one of you, and your families and loved ones, a happy and prosperous New Year.

As the slogan on our magazine masthead says – “Stand Men of the West, Today is the day we fight!”

Who Will Win the Special Election in Georgia on January 5th? – Report from H&D’s Washington DC correspondent James Knight

Democratic candidates Raphael Warnock (above left) and Jon Ossoff aim to take control of the US Senate for Joe Biden’s party at special elections on January 5th

While a political solution to America’s racial and cultural divide may be a ship that has already sailed, politics is still very much alive. Control of the U.S. Senate will be determined on January 5, 2021 with two run-off ‘special-elections’ in the southern state of Georgia. Due to Georgia’s unusual rules, both these elections have gone to a run-off ballot after no-one won more than 50% of the vote in November.

Republicans still hold both seats with Senator David Perdue and Senator Kelly Loeffler (who was appointed in January to the US Senate post relinquished on health grounds by fellow Republican Johnny Isakson) being the incumbents. Perdue is running against Jon Ossoff, a Jewish journalist and Loeffler’s challenger is Raphael Warnock, a black pastor. Both are typically terrible left-wing Democrats, but Warnock is a follower of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the black nationalist preacher who famously counted Barack Obama as a follower for several years.

(above right) Sen. Kelly Loeffler at a campaign event with former AF-BNP member Chester Doles.

Both Loeffler and Perdue are rather standard Republicans with one big difference. Loeffler has an A+ rating from immigration control group Numbers USA while Perdue has only a C+ on the issue. Critically, both would almost certainly vote against a Biden amnesty proposal while both Democrats would vote for it. Loeffler has also made some mild criticisms against the racist Black Lives Matter movement, and got herself into trouble when photographed with former AF-BNP member Chester Doles, at a campaign event in rural Georgia a couple of weeks back, which was picked up by the main stream media – including the UK’s Guardian newspaper.

Wins for the Democrats would mean the Senate is technically tied. But the vice president votes to break any tie and that will be Kamala Harris, who will vote for amnesty and every other leftist and anti-white initiative.

Even if Republicans can hold a two-seat edge, there is a chance Biden can persuade weak Republicans like Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowksi, Marco Rubio or even Susan Collins to cross the aisle and support amnesty.

Right now, the polls show a dead even race in both contests. But these same polls gave Trump a slight edge in November and he lost (by a mere 0.2 percent). Should Democrats win the election there will be literally nothing in the way of an extreme leftist agenda being forced on the U.S. And demographics will ensure this agenda is a permanent fact of life for Whites.
Separation will look better and better to a growing number of White Americans.

Abu Dhabi Sheikh buys 50% of “racist” Israeli football club

Sheikh Hamad (above right) with Beitar Jerusalem owner Moshe Hogeg in Dubai last week after signing the deal for Abu Dhabi investment in the “racist” Israeli club

A member of the Abu Dhabi royal family, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, has bought 50% of the Israeli club Beitar Jerusalem, pledging an investment of more than 300 million shekels (£68 million) over the next decade.

The Abu Dhabi royals already own Manchester City of course, as well as the likes of New York City FC, Melbourne City, and Mumbai City.

And their Israeli move is consistent with the decision earlier this year by the United Arab Emirates (which includes Abu Dhabi) to develop diplomatic and economic ties with Israel.

What will surprise a few people is that it should be Beitar of all clubs. Not only does it have a “racist” (i.e. anti-Arab) reputation, but even the club’s name is a clue as to its political roots.

Betar was the Zionist youth movement founded by Zeev Jabotinsky in the 1920s and it went on to be closely aligned with the Jabotinsky wing of Zionism and associated terrorist groups such as the Irgun. During the mid-1940s MI5 had an informant inside Betar monitoring the group’s terrorist links, and Betar organised terrorist training camps in New York’s Catskill mountains.

Betar activists in Berlin, 1936, during a period when the National Socialist Government actively encouraged militant Zionist groups.

Some other Israeli football clubs have names linked to the rival, more ‘moderate’ wing of Zionism led by Jabotinsky’s enemy David Ben Gurion and rooted in the labour movement – e.g. Hapoel Tel Aviv and several other clubs with Hapoel (i.e. ‘Worker’) in their names.

But then I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. These Arab sheikhs are interested only in power and money. Whereas the Labour/Hapoel types used to be the Israeli mainstream, and the ‘right-wing’ used to be marginalised – it’s now the ‘right-wing’ under Netanyahu and his Betar/Beitar allies who have the power.

Trouble is, that might not carry on for much longer, especially now that Netanyahu’s pal Trump is out of power. The Israelis might ditch Netanyahu and go back to some form of liberal/leftist government in the Ben Gurion tradition – in which case it would be Hapoel Tel Aviv, or perhaps Maccabi Tel Aviv or Maccabi Haifa, who would be the diplomatically correct team for kosher Arab royalty to link with!

Football fans all over England boo Black Lives Matter “take the knee” nonsense

It seems football fans all over England – not just Millwall as reported by the Main Stream Media (MSM) – were booing the Black Lives Matter ‘taking the knee’ nonsense at football grounds this afternoon. At some grounds in Covid Tier 2 areas, the Government “allowed” up to 2,000 fans to attend games this week.

Most fans had hoped that the saga of the “taking of the knee” to show support for the Communist / Republican organisation Black Lives Matter was over, and they could just get back to watching football again.

However, this was not to be and at most grounds, some misguided players and many officials who should know better, continued with this nonsense.

Understandingly, a lot of fans thought: enough is enough is now. When the players “took the knee” again they booed – and rightly so. They pay good money to watch footballers play football, not support militant political groups.

Of course the MSM went mental, and started to attack Millwall fans, while at the same time trying to cover up what was going on at other grounds.

Those watching the live West Ham United v Manchester United game on Sky Sports (who are big BLM supporters) which kicked off at 5.30pm, were treated to even more booing from West Ham fans!

Well done to all football fans across England (and some in Scotland we understand) who booed: let’s keep it up, they can’t ban us all.

Footnote: Astrophel Sang, aged 19, a BLM supporter from Birmingham, who was filmed using a lighter to try and set the Union flag at the Cenotaph, on fire during the BLM riots in Whitehall in London, on June 7th, before being brought down by the met police and arrested, was spared a jail sentence, and instead got a pitiful fine and community order – you just could not make it up!

Sang, an African immigrant, could have been jailed for up to 18 months. He twice tried to torch the Union flag, after climbing the war memorial during the riot. However, he could not light the flag because it was made to anti-flammable EU standards (well the EU is good for something!). However, he was given a two-year conditional discharge and told to pay £340 in costs.
Compare that to what nationalists might have got for similar crimes. What’s the old saying – one law for them……

Premier League and most clubs sign up to bogus ‘antisemitism’ definition

Today the Jewish Chronicle proudly announced that the Premier League – the most widely watched elite football division in the world – has signed up to the controversial “working definition of anti-semitism” issued by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).

All but one of the Premier League’s twenty clubs have also signed up to the “definition”, the sole exception (so far) being Sheffield United, a club owned by Saudi Prince Abdullah bin Musa’ad bin Abdulaziz.

There has been a lot of pressure recently on governments and other institutions (political or otherwise) to sign up to the IHRA definition: the Labour Party agreed to do so in September 2018 during Corbyn’s leadership but there was opposition to it from many Corbynistas, some of whom still argue that the leader should have taken a stand at that point and confronted the Zionist lobby.

Israeli professor Dina Porat (above right) seen here with Arie Zuckerman, right-hand man to Russian oligarch Moshe Kantor. Prof. Porat was the originator of the IHRA “definition” of “anti-semitism” now adopted by Premier League clubs and UK universities.

Today Birmingham University became the 18th of the 24 universities in the Russell Group – i.e. the UK’s elite research universities – to sign up to the “definition”. This IHRA “definition” has been widely criticised for effectively equating anti-Zionism with anti-semitism. Among the examples it gives of ‘antisemitism’ are:

  • “Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.
  • “Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
  • “Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.”

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) grew out of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust, whose infamous Guidelines for Holocaust teaching included:
“Care must be taken not to give a platform for deniers… or seek to disprove the deniers’ position through normal historical debate and rational argument.”

By adopting this bogus definition the Premier League and Britain’s elite universities have effectively turned themselves into pro-Zionist mouthpieces, rejecting “rational argument” in favour of unquestioning obedience to a cult and its masters.

Race police force resignation of FA Chairman

Greg Clarke, now ex-chairman of the Football Association

Greg Clarke, chairman of the Football Association, governing body in England for the world’s most popular sport, was forced to resign this week after using a forbidden racial word: not ‘n****r’ or ‘c**n’ or ‘w*g’ or ‘y*d’ – but merely ‘coloured’.

It didn’t help Mr Clarke that the context of this forbidden word was his testimony before a parliamentary committee, where he engaged in typical politically-correct grovelling. When discussing social media “abuse”, Clarke told the committee:

“…if I look at what has happened to high-profile female footballers, high-profile coloured footballers, and the abuse they have taken on social media. It is a free-for-all.

“People can see if you’re black and if they don’t like black people, because they’re filthy racists, they will abuse you anonymously online.

“They can see if you’re a woman, some of the high-profile black, female footballers take terrible abuse, absolutely vile abuse.”

Despite this typical White male self-abasement, the single word ‘coloured’ was picked out, and again despite a further abject apology, Clarke swiftly resigned.

Until about 1980, the word ‘coloured’ was perfectly normal in polite British discourse, but it’s now obligatory to say ‘black’ if one specifically means a negro, or use umbrella terms such as BAME if referring to non-Whites in general.

As with so much political correctness, this revision of vocabulary has come to Britain from the USA, where the term ‘coloured’ was part of the segregation of Whites and Coloureds that ended in the 1960s (although the word survives in its archaic meaning as part of the title of the anti-racist National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) founded in 1907).

‘Mixed race’ has followed ‘half-caste’ into the dustbin of forbidden terms (or perhaps as Mrs Clinton put it the “basket of deplorables”). This is because it’s no longer acceptable even to imply that there is such a thing as race, especially a putative ‘pure’ as opposed to ‘mixed’ race. Meanwhile the ‘N’ word is widely used at street level among ‘African-Americans’ and their co-racialists worldwide, but is among the worst sins imaginable if used by Whites. Other once-common words such as ‘piccaninny’, despite originating among blacks themselves, have long since been banned from White useage.

Many once common terms are now forbidden to Whites

This policing of language is a means of keeping Whites in line, constantly guarding their tongue and apologising for the imagined sins of their ancestors. Yet it’s becoming a dangerous game for the political establishment.

Organisations such as the FA are dependent on government cooperation, and grassroots football in particular depends on taxpayers’ largesse, so has no alternative but to play along with each successive politically correct obsession.

But the wider football-viewing public is increasingly exasperated. In the privacy of the polling booth, many once Labour-voting workers in northern England voted for Brexit (and in December 2019 for the Conservative Party) not solely because of constitutional issues and opposition to the European Union, but in a spirit of resistance to anti-White policies in the field of law and order, education, immigration and even sport.

The Greg Clarke ‘scandal’ proves the futility of attempting to appease ‘anti-racists’ by surrendering to their agenda. Ultimately it proves the futility of liberalism, ‘moderate’ conservatism and civic nationalism. Eventually Whites simply have to draw a line and say they will no longer accept this oppression. Will this resistance crystallise in post-Covid Britain?
