The Second Great Depression: 2007 - ? by John Salvage

When Captain Mainwaring and his merry band of Home Guards were captured in their own town, and held by the enemy in one of many embarrassing moments for them, during that excellent series ''Dad's Army'', he made a statement that echoes down the decades. When the enemy officer asked the young volunteer for his name, Captain Mainwaring quickly and angrily shouted: ''Don't tell him Pike'', giving the whole scene a humorous touch, in what was essentially a dangerous situation. That ''Don't tell him Pike'' slip up, is now used by the media, and opposition politicians, to pretend that somehow, at some point in the last four or five years, we had an economic recovery, but now face a double dip recession. We didn't, and many business people, those small to medium employers and self-employed folk, and many ordinary working people, know that a double dip recession, is propaganda, and an insult to our collective intelligence. Back in 2007, some colleagues and myself, ran a small hand-made furniture business. In that year, we kept getting international phone calls, mainly from the USA, and thousands of emails, asking us if we'd like to purchase shares. At the same time, we noticed that even back then, retail industry giants had started to offer massive discounts, all year long sales campaigns, and longer and longer terms for not paying immediately, and all the rest. ''Something is going on'' we said, and that statement was repeated to everyone, including our immediate families, whom at that time, thought we were quite wrong, and possibly paranoid. Then, one of the most well known retailers, Woolworths, closed down, followed by hundreds of other stores, many of them independent, along with large and traditional manufacturing companies. Because so many people, and businesses, were debt ridden, and credit was freely and stupidly available en-mass, the con-trick enabled the establishment to cloak the reality of the situation, and then the whole sordid affair exploded, or rather imploded. The boom and bust lie had finally come home to roost. Official figures were engineered to offer a supposed upward show of growth, closely followed by frantic re-financing, in other words another bundle of debt, at least according to the media and official statements regarding this supposed ''growth.'' Any sensible and free thinking individual, knew full well that there was never a recovery, of any sorts. The whole western world is, and will be for generations to come, drowning under a sea of toxic debt. Manufacturing, as proven by the treachery of this coalition government's ''give away'' of the contract to a foreign railway company, and not Bombardier in Derby, is all but finished here. This year, the debt interest alone on UK debt is £48.6 Billion, or 3% of GDP. With all the companies we once knew, gone, or having to cut costs and salaries, that debt is never likely to be paid off, ever.

The true cost of total debt to this nation alone according to ( is now in excess of Five Trillion pounds. Without the businesses that once employed people and thus, paid taxes, there is, and never was a recovery, and a threat of a double dip recession... we were never out of it. Many writers and thinkers in nationalist circles have of course, noted that the Second World War was the actual start of our problems, at least in terms of mass national and personal debt. In fact, just to blow the minds of newer readers, and some who are only just getting the gist of our demise, if it wasn't for the ''war chest'' syndrome of yesteryear, whereby the populace produced from their hard earned pennies and shillings, a percentage of those earnings amongst other items, we may not have endured what we see today. What we know now, as ''Income Tax'', was first introduced here, by William Pitt (the younger), during his budget of late 1798, so as to pay for weapons and equipment for the Napoleonic Wars. These wars were furnished with debts provided to both this nation, and the French, by the worlds richest bankers, the Rothschild dynasty, whom made vast amounts of money lending to both sides. An early Rothschild banker hit the nail on the head, when he bragged: Give me control of a nations money, and I care not who makes it's laws. Such insanity is of course now run of the mill. With the Euro catastrophe dragging Britain deeper into the abyss, and not enough income tax with which to pay for foreign wars, the debt crisis is not really a debt crisis, it has become a credit crisis. Leaders all around the west, are without exception, aiding and abetting our slavery at the hands of the bankers, and with mass immigration, foreign aid, and another two countries on the agenda for regime change, or outright military action, no end to our woes are in sight. Taxes of course are only a problem for ordinary people to worry about. Backdoor taxes such as increased fuel costs, and so-called Value Added Tax, or VAT, are certainly not a problem for the super rich. Many of these are completely out of the system altogether, many not paying anything towards the burden we have to pay for. The Unions have also garnished at least £113 million of taxpayers money. Last year, Trade Unions grabbed direct grants, and taxpayer-subsidised “facility time”, and do little to offset our economic problems, rather, their leaders help facilitate them, by supporting immigration. All in all, there is no alternative but to become self-sufficient in all and everything. Supporters and voters of the British National Party, and all its activists, should be looking at every opportunity and every avenue, to taking their assets, skills, and food purchases out of a system that is doomed to failure.

The nation is not in a position to offer us, or the next generation anything of value, especially worthwhile employment or career prospects. We are now at the gates of a serious, and to be honest, far more deadly depression than the late 1920's one, and nothing other than a Nationalist revolution will stave off the coming destruction of all we know and love. Businesses that have no democratic choice but to ''comply'' with EU regulations, pay a staggering £28 Billion. The Common Agricultural Policy, and additional food related costs total another £17 billion. The cost of foreign trawlers costs our fishermen and industry, £3.3 Billion, and £14.6 Billion is paid into the EU budget, and other EU funding ''contracts''. The argument for a swift withdrawal from this monster, and to re-negotiate our total debt to international finance houses, has never been more immediate. Britain will probably be better off becoming nil rated, and classed as bankrupt. Our economy is nothing more than a fat, but very unhealthy cow, milked to death by greedy bankers, and those companies merely operating pathetic, and rather pointless ''services'' or other such rubbish. Our benefits system makes us the ''Benefits Riviera of The World,'' so there would be no loss on that point. The fiscal strategy for inclusion into the EU, was supposedly that no nation could fall below a certain amount of operating money, a little bit like a well run business. That has been ignored, as almost every nation involved in this gigantic tote system, is in debt, and cannot pay it's way... it is therefore a defunct monolith, and is ''illegal'' under the terms of it's own constitution. With all we have discussed here, it is safe to say that, we would lose nothing if we as a nation, started from scratch, printed and minted our own money, say, a return to Pounds, Shillings, and Pence, nationalise all important services and infrastructure, re-write the English Bill of Rights for modern times, (1689) and keeping traditional elements within it, extend them to include a united Britain. Re-write and do the same with the Act of Settlement (1701), and the Magna Carta. Thus, those living here, regardless of ethnic background, would have choices. Those disagreeing with the majority, would be funded to leave.

With this depression now turning into a war on our kith and kin, and starting when it did, in around 2007, the above, and what will be discussed in the final chapter of this article, will have to be instituted into the form of a ''British Constitution'' as it were, between like minded people, and drawing in our closest friends, colleagues, and fellow activists. Legally, we have rights, (just about) and legally, we can opt out of anything that does not sit well with us, the majority. There is going to be no end, at least not a good one, to what we are witnessing today. The second great Depression of 2007 - ? is a serious, long term, multi-generational situation. We need a strategy, and we need to act now. We have nothing, and no-one except our own political leadership at the British National Party, and that in many respects is just one component in our struggle. Recent splits are as many will remember... pointless and useless, as history has shown. Those amongst us with assets, businesses, skills, and the means to produce food, should now create a system within a system, bypassing the ugly debt ridden, credit based black hole. Finance is dead, and so are pensions, savings, and continued reliance upon the traditional working week and employment values. The King as they say, is dead, but long live the King. Our chances of survival in this insane system, a system of Trotsky influenced ''Perpetual Revolution'', are nil. Talking, and writing constantly about the problems and causes of them, are getting us no where, what we need is action. We need to start implementing the strategy of ''cause and effect.'' We all know the cause, so we now need to prepare to effect those doing us harm. Our combined talents, numbers, and sheer willpower, should be able to conflict enough damage on the enemy, so as to cause them great loss... money, control over our lives, control over food and water, and control over our health and well being, should all be brought back to our hands. Let's put a date or year in place of that question mark in the title of this article. And when that date or year is finalised, let us make that date and year the start of our renaissance, one that will be written in the annals of the history books still to be written.
