UK’s latest failed Prime Minister triggers election

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced this afternoon that there will be a general election on 4th July. This will almost certainly result in a Labour government, leaving Sunak as the 14th shortest serving PM in our nation’s history.

His Labour opponents are doubtless correct that one reason for calling an election now was fear that during the summer a new immigration crisis, involving yet more ‘small boats’ crossing the Channel, would prove the government’s impotence.

But few H&D readers will expect anything better from Labour once they return to office. The nationalist movement remains in a state of transition, as we have explained in our analysis of the local elections earlier this month. It’s unlikely that there will be more than a handful of nationalist candidates on 4th July, but as ever we shall provide detailed coverage of the campaign and its implications for our cause, including a close look at the ‘civic nationalist’ party Reform UK and its imitators.

Despite frequent rhetoric, Sunak’s Tories have proved incapable of halting the flow of illegal immigrants crossing the English Channel in ‘small boats’.

Most importantly, the likely destruction of the Tory Party at the polls in six weeks time, where Sunak will probably go down to a defeat as bad as (or worse than) the landslide suffered by John Major in 1997, will change the UK’s political landscape in ways that ought to create new opportunities for nascent nationalist parties such as the British Democrats, Homeland Party, and (if and when it registers for electoral purposes) Patriotic Alternative.

H&D will continue to be the only credible, factionally independent source for news about nationalism in the UK, including electoral aspects in the coming weeks. Our next print edition will appear very soon after next month’s European elections.

Six of those who served shorter terms than Sunak were obscure 18th century PMs, dating from an era when politics was more a matter of court factions than ‘parliamentary democracy’.

And two of the more recent PMs to serve very short terms were men who had the misfortune to die or become fatally ill while in office, including one of the best PMs in our history, Bonar Law.

Sunak’s impending defeat will allow him to spend more time with his wife and their billionaire family: his father-in-law is one of the wealthiest men in India.

Sunak’s situation most closely resembles Sir Alec Douglas-Home, who had the misfortune to become Prime Minister at the tail end of a long period of Tory rule when there was a general mood of “time for a change”. But in 1964 Douglas-Home managed a far closer result than Sunak will be capable of in 2024.

For racial nationalists, another interesting aspect of this year’s general election will be how far George Galloway’s Workers Party, or independent candidates (mainly Asians) challenging Labour in Muslim areas, will succeed in damaging Labour over its pro-Zionist stance.

This evening we have already seen what is arguably the first Galloway ‘scalp’ of the campaign. Halifax MP Holly Lynch has retired at the very young age of 37. Though she claims this is due to having a young child and another baby on the way, she is almost certainly running scared of a Galloway-backed campaign in a seat that has been marginal at some previous elections, and which has a large Muslim minority.

Halifax was one of only three boroughs where Galloway’s party won a council seat this month.

By retiring at this very late stage, just before a general election, Ms Lynch has effectively allowed Labour’s leadership to impose a chosen candidate – a fact that Galloway will doubtless exploit by pointing out the ways in which Labour has taken Muslim voters for granted.
