Paid in Advance

The British Freedom Party has just made a special offer to all patriots who have served in the Armed Services, in recognition of their sacrifices for the same freedoms that BF champions.

The following announcement was posted today on the British Freedom website.

British Freedom: Armed Services

What Is British Freedom?

It’s not just a catch-phrase or the name of our party, it actually means a great deal.

Think about it:

  • Why is Britain Free?
  • What is Freedom?
  • What is Britishness?

Freedom is the ability to think, say and do what comes naturally, without fear of persecution.

It’s democracy — true democracy.

It’s freedom of thought, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom to fail and freedom to succeed.

So, where and how did we get these freedoms?

Well, that’s where the ‘Britain’ bit comes in. It came about because our ancestors fought and died for it. They stood for weeks or even months on end in hellish, waterlogged frozen trenches only to come out and face certain death in order to deliver us the Freedom that we sadly take for granted today.

That, in a nutshell, is British Freedom.

So, our question is this:

Why should those who gave — and still give — so much have to pay for the right to have a say in how the country they fought for, and their relatives died for, is run?

The simple and obvious answer is that they shouldn’t. For this reason the British Freedom Party will offer free lifetime membership to anyone who has served their country. This will include full voting rights and an exclusive ‘Armed Services Membership Card”.

Just because it requires no financial outlay, it is not “free”. The sacrifice and courage displayed by our servicemen is way beyond mere financial cost. Winston Churchill summed it up perfectly when he stated “Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few.”

This is precisely why British Freedom stands foursquare behind our servicemen and women.

We will never surrender Britain’s ancient and bloodily-defended Freedoms to totalitarian political correctness, the hard-left, Islamic fundamentalists or the unelected European Commissars who are systematically dismantling our country, our culture, and our much fought for Freedoms piece by piece.

If we allow this to happen, then we will be guilty of a great betrayal — the betrayal of all those who sacrificed so much in order that we might live in Freedom and Liberty.

The next time you pause beside a war memorial and look at the countless names of the young men who died for you, your country, your culture and your freedom, you should ask yourself whether the Britain they died for is worth the same to you.

We are British. We are Free. We are British Freedom.

If you are a British subject, and a current or former member of the Armed Services, visit the British Freedom website and sign up for a free — or rather pre-paid — party membership.

British Freedom not quite, British service men fight and have fought for all, not to gain advantage and privilege over their compatriots on Civvy Street.

This is a great idea! I am a member of the Australian Protectionist Party and I will be putting forward a motion that our party also does this. It's the least we can do for our returned Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen.

As whistful as this piece sounds, in all honesty, Britain has never been free. Since Henry VIII the Catholic church has been supressed, to the point where an act of parliament made it illegal for anyone in the line of monarchical succession could even MARRY a Catholic spouse. And look where this got them; employers can now discriminate against any visible signs of Christianity at will.

Freedom has always been a very relative concept in Britain.

QR -
This is OT but the other day you said you wished you could view Sun News in the states.
Go to:
Click on "videos" in the top banner.
Use the search profile for Michael Coren (The Arena) or Ezra Levant (The Source).
What will pop up is segments of their shows. I don't know why Sun does it this way rather than just posting the entire show...
I check in almost every day to see what they are discussing.

The question is really, "Whatever happened to British freedom?".

It has been whittled away, bits at a time, over decades - slowly, so you didn't notice, until one morning recently you woke up and found that there are now dozens of things you may not do, dozens of things you may not say - dozens of things you may not think.

While it lasted, though, England was that shining house on the hill, a thing parents will tell their children for generations - until eventually, those children will look up and say, "How could that be? Was there really such a time?".
