The Big Society Explained — It Does Exist

By Southwest Nationalist. Politicians, commentators, academics, and just about everyone else have long been divided on just what the Big Society is. Or, indeed, if it is anything at all other than a catchy, but ultimately empty, political slogan.

Now, we bring you the truth. The Big Society does exist, Dave Cameron didn’t lie when he started banging on about it, although he may well have had his tongue firmly in cheek and a mental two fingers stuck up at all of us.

Big is indeed the buzzword for modern Britain, and Society, well, we still qualify as being one, although not one that any of us really wanted.

So, why is it a Big Society?

Big cutbacks for one. Everything that can possibly be cut back – other than foreign aid and spending on wars – is being cut back Big time. Foreign aid, that’s increasing Big time.

We’re seeing a Big increase in our population, thanks in large part to mass immigration and successive governments complete failure to deal with it.

Thanks to this Big increase in population, we’re seeing a Big rise in the number of school places needed, and a Big demand for fresh housing to accommodate them all. Not to mention the Big increases in social spending to deal with all these minorities and their needs.

A Big rise in strike actions, and Big picket lines outside just about every public body going. Schools and Education, tube strikes, we are in line for one Big summer of discontent.

Big rises in unemployment among the indigenous as companies close down in the disastrous financial climate, and a Big rise in the number of foreigners occupying British jobs.

Big numbers of British people forced to rely on social benefits, and Bigger queues at foodbanks as the dire financial situation really begins to bite.

A Big increase in ethnic minority populations as birth rates and continued mass immigration ensure that the indigenous white British march towards minority status.

Big increases in non indigenous crimes – including those which are solely imported such as female circumcision or forced marriages.

The well documented Big rises in the rates of such diseases as Tuberculosis and HIV, largely driven by enrichers, and imposing a Big additional burden on the NHS and related

services.

A Big reduction in the prison sentences criminals serve, at least if Ken Clarke gets his way.

Big increases in the amount we give to Europe, and which we have committed – and will no doubt commit again despite Dave’s reassurances – to bailouts of EU nations.

We could go on and on, but the case is proven. The Big Society does exist. Very tongue in cheek, we could say that the Big Society is real, and we’re living in it. But, as the old saying goes, bigger doesn’t mean better.

At least now you are enlightened, when the Big Society next comes up, and people bang their heads against the walls wondering what the hell it all means, you know. It could much more honestly be called a Big Mess, and a Big Mistake.

By the way, has anyone else noticed that the initials of the Big Society are B and S – every internet user out there has to know what BS stands for. It seems apt.

  1. A superb article by Southwest Nationalist. The Big Society is just one Big Con, by that prime conman David Cameron. It is a laughable idea that voluntary groups can take over all the services that the state currently provides. It is just being used as a smokescreen for deep cuts in all public services. While we would all agree that urgent cuts are needed in public expenditure, we disagree with the places that this government intend to make them. Billions were given to the banks. Billions spent on illegal and futile foreign wars. Billions wasted on foreign aid. Billions given to the EU annually. Meanwhile we are told that we can’t afford the police, the NHS, to properly equip our armed services and we cant afford to pay our public sector pensions. We already have the lowest state pensions in Europe. A Nationalist government would put our people before the needs and greed of international big business. No more money wasted on a fundamentally doomed European project, withdrawal of all troops from foreign wars and an end to all foreign aid until we have our own house back in order. Just a few measures that this government will never take.

  2. This was an article written about Cameron’s big society before the last general election. I think it is very interesting and informative;

    David Cameron’s Big Society is a grotesque fantasy inspired by leftist subversive Saul Alinsky
    By Gerald Warner Politics April 1st, 2010
    “This plan is directly based on the successful community organising movement established by Saul Alinsky in the United States and has successfully trained generations of community organisers, including President Obama.”
    That statement, which beggars belief even in the political fairground we now inhabit, is not taken from some far-out Trotskyite samizdat, but from the official Conservative Party introduction to David Cameron’s Big Idea – the creation of a “Neighbourhood army” of 5,000 full-time community organisers to implement his grotesque fantasy called “Big Society”. If you ever doubted that, under Cameron, the Conservative Party has become ideologically and culturally deracinated, has lost its political compass and is occupied by an alien clique that has disfigured it beyond recognition, here is the incontestable evidence.
    Saul Alinsky is here openly acknowledged as the inspiration behind Cameron’s “Big Idea”. Alinsky was the lifelong cultural revolutionary and political subversive whom Barack Obama formerly claimed as his “spiritual mentor”; since Obama hit mainstream politics, however, his supporters have expended a vast amount of effort on trying to conceal that embarrassing history. The aggressively amoral Alinsky believed there was no right or wrong in politics, only what was necessary to seize power (well, Dave and his gang would buy that).
    Yet the Conservative Party blurts out this admission in the launch document of Big Society. There is a pedantic debate over whether Alinsky was technically a Marxist, or by-passed Marx as old-hat. What is beyond question is his project to overthrow capitalist society and to do so through infiltration of political parties, institutions and, above all, by the use of “community organisers”. Anybody who thought claims on this blog of Cultural Marxism influencing even the Tory Party were exaggerated can now think again. Alinsky was the first begetter of ACORN, the sinister organisation that tried to gerrymander the American electorate.
    What is going on here? Who is running the Cameronian Party – Common Purpose? How is it conceivable that even the most bland, politically correct, centre-right “conservative” party could derive its flagship policy from the thinking of Alinsky, whose seminal work Rules for Radicals was dedicated to Lucifer? If, as one suspects, this is the brainchild of Oliver Letwin, he needs to be escorted expeditiously to the seclusion of a padded boudoir.
    Are the Tories totally demented? Sending 5,000 community organisers to harass people into approved activities is reminiscent of the Red Guards invading the countryside during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Claims that they will not be state employees are contradicted by the references to “grants” that will be made available. The inescapable fact is that any enterprise artificially generated by Government is a state-inspired initiative. Real communities have the WRI, the British Legion, bowling, tennis, cricket clubs – naturally evolved organisations.
    Those who prate most about “communitarianism” are precisely those who have destroyed real communities, by enforcing mass immigration, impoverishing the countryside, imposing draconian Health and Safety regulations, etc. What hope for thriving communities when nativity plays are routinely banned on PC grounds? Do something about all that, Dave – that is all that people ask.
    What a dog’s breakfast the whole Heath-Robinson contraption is. A Big Society Bank funded by dormant bank accounts – they’re having a laugh, surely? And why should communities want to buy clapped-out shops and other enterprises that have failed the test of market forces? Transforming the civil service into a “civic service” by making community busy-bodying an element in civil servant staff appraisals – what kind of nonsense is this? Forcing the most public-sector-minded jobsworths in the country to the forefront of local community life is actually the most culturally centralising, collectivist initiative imaginable.
    On page 6 of this electoral suicide note we also read that neighbourhood “group leaders” will have a code of conduct and “This code of conduct will protect neighbourhood groups against extremist causes.” What is that all about? Political direction and social control, it would seem. The point where one sees why Dave had to rush this initiative out a few hours ahead of 1 April is when we come to the proposed annual national “Big Society Day”.
    If you thought Gordon Brown’s abortive “Britishness Day” was, well, un-British – what about this contrived, synthetic, ideological celebration? How would we celebrate Big Society Day? With mass parades, floats, huge portraits of Dave the Great Leader?
    Big Society is either sinister or a reflection of the Cameronian clique’s total divorce from reality. It is utterly un-Conservative and totally un-British. The people of this country, insofar as they can bring themselves to take it seriously, will hate it to death. It is the product of an alien intrusion occupying the husk of the Conservative Party. It is an eloquent testimonial to why David Cameron is unfit to become the Prime Minister of this country.
