According to BBC News online, UKIP leader Nigel Farage was upset “to turn on the news this morning and hear some appalling puritanical figure telling us no level of drinking is safe.”
He is urging a “mass protest” at new alcohol guidelines in UK.
He encouraged people to “do what you enjoy.”
This wicked, irresponsible “advice” is chillingly similar to the slogan of the sinister Aleister Crowley when he said, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”
Nigel Farage, in all probability, was not thinking of Crowley when he responded as he did to the new alcohol guidelines, but Crowley’s words echoed in my mind when I read Mr. Farage’s “advice.”
He is often photographed with alcoholic drink in his hand and a big smile on his face, as if drinking alcohol was a jolly, merry indulgence, when, in reality, it is harmful, addictive and, for many, has brought untold misery and heartbreak.
I believe that total abstinence from alcohol is the safest and wisest course of action for everyone and I enjoin this course on all who read this blog.
UKIP are a libertarian Party and I firmly believe that Christians should have nothing to do with it.
Interestingly, UKIP and the TUV had a cosy relationship until recent times when Henry Reilly was expelled from UKIP and joined TUV. Then Fred Parkinson also left UKIP and he too joined TUV.
Yet, a couple of years ago, Henry Reilly and Fred Parkinson, both then UKIP members, spoke at a UKIP meeting in Fivemiletown and sang the praises of UKIP and did not appreciate our questions about UKIP’s liberal attitude towards homosexuals. We went to that meeting specifically to ask such questions. There were TUV members also present that night and they seemed on very friendly terms with the UKIP men.
Incidentally, Jim Allister has said that if he were in England, he would probably be a UKIP activist.
Henry Reilly and Fred Parkinson now criticise UKIP and sing the praises of TUV feeling it is their “natural home.”
Fred Parkinson said (of UKIP) “The Party leader’s (David McNarry) decision to work with people from a paramilitary background launching the Loyalist Community Council went against his and Party colleague Henry Reilly’s vision for the Party.”
Yet, Jim Allister, the TUV leader took a similar course of action when in 2014 he worked with unrepentant loyalist murderer Billy Hutchinson, leader of the PUP, in a pan-unionist grouping. Mr.Allister defended his decision to work with Billy Hutchinson in an interview with the News Letter in 2014.
Curiouser and Curiouser.
TUV have shown that they are no friend of ours because when I stood as a candidate in the 2014 Council election in West Tyrone and we asked a TUV man to help us with advice on canvassing a given area, he informed us that he was told by a TUV representative in our area not to help us.
So there was no help for a Biblically sound and courageous candidate, despite the fact that TUV put no-one forward to stand in that election.
Says it all really!
