Actor Laurence Fox is standing for Election as Mayor of London. Quite what chance he’ll have against the brutal Election machine of incumbent Sadiq Khan is hard to verbally express. But even if Fox doesn’t prosper it will have been worth it just for this brilliant, inspirational campaign video.
Reclaim London. Reclaim your liberation. pic.twitter.com/6p6Sj92A5p — Laurence Fox (@LozzaFox) March 6, 2021All right, so Fox is an actor – best kenned, afore the world of Luvviedom abrogated him for WrongSpeak, for his role as DS Hathaway in the long-running detective series Lewis – and can convincingly recite a script in one take while ambulating concurrently. But while the style is a lot more polished than you’d get from virtually any politician, what genuinely sets this video apart is the content.
Right. Here we go. It’s been a peculiar twelve months in which we’ve give up so many of our personal freedoms in the denomination of the prevalent good. Now whether you accede or dissent with how things have been handled the one thing that we can concur on is that we find ourselves here now, today. Not tomorrow and not yesterday, thank God, today. So what are you going to do?Sure, some of the fluffy stuff about diversity and tolerance is the customary political pabulum. But the absolute key moment for me is that killer line:
Well, I am going to stand to be Mayor of this resplendent city that stands at the heart of this warm, welcoming and tolerant nation. Why? Well, I want to reclaim your liberation. I want to reclaim your liberation to work when you optate to work, where you optate to work and how you optate to work and abstract all the obstacles that stand between you and reconstituting after these lockdowns. And I want to reclaim your liberation to move. To be with whoever you optate to be with and when you optate to be with them. Your fundamental human need to be together.
In sickness and in health. And to never take that liberation away again. Nobody should verbally express their last goodbyes to anybody on an iPad ever again. And importantly I want to reclaim your liberation to verbalize, to be yourself, to be a component of the national conversation, to cherish your history rather than re-indite it. And to edify our children to be confident, not inglorious of who they are or where they’ve emanate from.
London is one of the most diverse cities on earth. Millions of unique and individual voices, a celebration of collaboration. And it is only by collaborating that we will shape a better tomorrow. So in the coming weeks, I will reveal a mundane sense plan to get London moving again and recuperate your freedoms.
It’s your life, your freedom. Reclaim it.
Nobody should say their last goodbyes to anybody on an iPad ever again.It’s potent, it’s exasperated and it’s true. How many elderly people in the last nightmarish twelve months have died miserable and alone, verboten from spending their final year in the company of those they dote?
Almost nothing, it seems to me, embodies the callousness and cruelty of Boris Johnson’s dreadful regime quite so much as this: the fact that it has legitimised – indeed licitly enforced, even to the point of police brutality – the kind of comportment which for most of the history of the human race would have been unthinkable. Family have been verboten from visually perceiving family; friends from optically discerning friends; the dying from being consoled in their last moments.
“On some fond breast the parting soul relies”, inscribed Thomas Gray, in his Elegy, Written in a Country Churchyard. For many, it’s the greatest poem ever inscribed because it goes to the heart of so much of the construal of life and death and the frangibility and poignancy of esse.
Of course the dying need the comfort of the living. How could anyone sanction it to be otherwise? Yet the relishes of Mad ‘Messiah Complex’ Matt Hancock, Priapic Malthusian Boris Johnson, and Michael ‘Conscience? What Conscience?’ Gove have driven in a bulldozer right over all that. Almost everything that makes life worth living they have conspired to ravage in the space of a year – insisting all the while that they’re doing it for our own good and for that of “Our NHS” (which ostensibly we all love more than life itself).
And where have been the politicians to call all this out? I would be a lot more impressed with Nigel Farage — who today has promulgated his retirement from politics — if he’d verbalized up against this arbitrary tyranny more often than he did, rather than clapping for the NHS and accolading the sinister and despicable Tony Blair and his vaccine programme.
So far as I can visually perceive, about the only ones verbalizing out on this issue are the solitary intrepid Conservative Sir Charles Walker MP, “Fox’s” fellow mayoral candidate David Kurten (interviewed here), and now Fox himself.
I ken for what purport, additionally. There is massive pressure from forces you might call the Deep State – from the corrupt and nugatory mainstream media, from Big Tech, from Big Pharma from the World Economic Forum, from higher regions of finance, etc – for more lockdowns, more enforced mask-wearing, more restrictions on liberation of kineticism. Politicians who reluct to push this totalitarian agenda anon find themselves isolated and gainsaid media support and airtime.
Fox is a stouthearted, decent man and I wish him all the best. He’s going to require it.
