Political Party

I thought this was very true, in an earlier post:
Whereas the enemies of free expression delight in actively striving to suppress freedoms, free expression's supporters wish simply to enjoy their freedoms and find it onerous to have to actively defend them.
I also noticed a lot of humour and high spirits on Saturday.

This made me think... Fascists aren't a lot of fun. Religious nuts are no fun at all. The indecent left are possibly the least fun thing on the planet. Watching the bullfighter, reading some of the placards and T-shirts and then chatting with people in the pub later, I thought: this is fun. These would be good people to invite to a party. A political party. Music, stand-up and (short) speeches. Broaden it out and try to involve some of the people who can't quite be bothered with politics at the moment.

I know there will be some groans at this idea, but the problem is that a lot of our most natural supporters are out enjoying themselves. Political participation and electoral turnouts are at an all time low. Into the void step the swivel-eyed loonies. How do we stop this happening?

I can think of worse answers than: hold a party.

Great idea and totally inkeeping with where you seem to be headed.

Be seen to have fun - a lot of people would be attracted to that.

The idea of setting up a political party is absurd. What is necessary is a lobby group to campaign for the Freedom of Expression and against the Islamofascism of Sharia Law.

You would expect
to provide some sort of lead, but they seem strangely shy about making any comment at all which could be interpreted as criticism of the Islamic interpretation of 'Freedom of Expression'.

A great idea! A great idea that will hopefully get the youth of the UK involved in the fight for their freedoms.

Just keep it fun. Parties can be such a drag when there are politicians around...
