A once-mighty nation is now in a state of flux in which traditional, conservative values are thrown aside in favour of militant egalitarianism, multiculturalism and identity politics, fuelled by seemingly unstoppable mass immigration. Along the way, freedom of speech is becoming increasingly threatened, and I give as an example my own recent experience during a heated debate on Twitter. Britain, Europe and the wider Western World is changing – not slowly, over the passage of time, but rapidly, before our very eyes. This isn’t so much a slow-motion car crash, but a pretty fast one.
I'm currently working on a full-length book addressing this topic but along the way intend to write a series of essays based on recent developments over the past few days and weeks. This first one, split into a dozen parts, seeks to give a fresh and immediate flavour of how, day by day, Britain is becoming ever more abnormal and politically-correct.
I conclude with a flavour of what is to come in my longer work – a blueprint for saving British and European civilisation. The medicine won’t be easy to take, or nice to taste, but it's do or die.
