“James Delingpole is a writer, journalist and broadcaster who is right about everything. He is the author of numerous fantastically entertaining books including 365 Ways to Drive a Liberal Crazy, Welcome To Obamaland: I’ve Seen Your Future And It Doesn’t Work, How To Be Right, and the Coward series of WWII adventure novels.”
…….. as the tongue-in-cheek heading states at Delingpole’s blog.
Nevertheless his broadly libertarian view of the current political scene, does have a lot in common with what UKIP has been saying about these matters for some long time, possibly even since its inception. In this 48 minute interview with Peter Robinson, Delingpole goes into some detail of his analysis of the immediate past, and the immediate prospects for Western Democracy.
Delingpole bemoans the fact that no modern mainstream political party has the answers to this dilemma. There is hope though says Delingpole, if only there were a movement of libertarian, minimal administration, like the US “Tea Party”, then Britain and Europe could be saved from the “Terminator” style Monster-Euro-Government that looms over the British Isles. A passing reference is made to UKIP, and the fact that in Britain, public support for UKIP is now within one percentage point of the Liberal Democrats.
James Delingpole writes: “Peter Robinson is the uber-poised, uber-intelligent, uber-civilised (well he did go to Ch Ch) commentator, broadcaster and former Reagan aide who as a young man scripted the “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Brandenburg Gate speech in Berlin in 1987. He’s the co-founder of the US conservative website Ricochet which contains some of the most brilliant writing in the entire blogosphere and fabbo podcasts too including one mysteriously called Radio Free Delingpole
He’s also a fellow of the Hoover Institution – an island of immense conservative soundness set in a vast ocean of liberal sanctimoniousness at Stanford (aka “The Farm”) University, in Palo Alto, capitol of Silicon Valley, in the People’s Republic of California. His Uncommon Knowledge series is pretty much the most distinguished political discussion programme you’ll see on TV because – thanks to Peter – it still exudes that otherwise vanished gravitas which used to be a commonplace in the days of Face to Face or Kenneth Clark’s Civilisation.”
