For those not “in the know”, the “Melon” appellation alludes to the non-botanical observation that the Marxist Green Party, just like a melon, has a green exterior but is otherwise red throughout.
In the 1980’s and 1990’s the Marxist Green Party were virtually alone in riding shotgun on the environmentalist bandwagon, a ramshackle vehicle from which they purveyed, like 19th century snake-oil vending quacks, a range of half-baked and often contradictory “cure-alls” as environmentalist policy..
Since then practically every party in Britain, including the ever opportunistic and perpetually deceitful Tories, have embraced “environmentalism” to a greater or lesser extent; a development that has severely reduced the Green Party’s potential for organic growth.
Recognising the limitations of their quack environmentalism in light of prevailing real-politics, this Marxist party has now “pitched its yurts” on new ground, the political equivalent of quagmire, that of LGBT politics.
Where this Marxist party chooses to position its political tepees is, of course, wholly a matter for them; we are, naturally, aware that their decision is based entirely on deeply and long held convictions and principles, rather than naked political expediency.
Their choice, it is claimed, has absolutely nothing to do with Brighton’s Pavilion constituency, which boasts Britain’s largest LBGT community, a community that they hope will deliver to them something that green politics so far has failed to – that being a Westminster parliamentary seat.
Yet even this is problematical for them; how they will “square” their avowed support for Islam – a faith notorious for its homophobic attitudes – with their promotion of LBGT issues, remains to be seen.
Respect tried to square this particular circle and failed miserably.
That’s not to say that these Marxists have abandoned serious green politics altogether, but they really do need to address some of their many environmental policy inconsistencies if they are to achieve a modicum of credibility in that sphere.
For instance, on one hand the Marxist “Melon Party” would have us believe that they oppose the Government’s proposed mass house building programme, a programme that threatens to wreck so much of our countryside; on the other hand they have never condemned the mass immigration that is fuelling the demand for so many new homes and which Labour uses to justify their insane proposal.
Although some within the Marxist “Melon Party” are willing to accept overpopulation as a major and growing threat to the environment – they consider the British National Party’s policy to halt immigration as “racist” and even worse, reject any limitations on the free movement of labour between countries.
The Marxist “Melon Party” also clings to the now thoroughly discredited “man-made” global warming quackery, still claiming carbon dioxide to be responsible for non-existent global warming.
The Marxist “Melon Party” claims to champion animal welfare, indeed one of its two MEPs has recently been appointed President of the European Parliament’s cross-party Animal Welfare Intergroup, yet they don’t even acknowledge ritual slaughter as animal abuse, far less condemn it.
On a similar theme, the Marxist “Melon Party” are fully aware of the exemptions enshrined in the various Slaughter Acts which legalise ritual slaughter, yet have never campaigned for the reform of Britain’s inconsistent Slaughter Acts to eliminate these vile inconsistencies.
When questioned as to why the Marxist “Melon Party”, whilst claiming to support animal welfare, ignores the most prolific form of animal abuse practiced in Britain, the following response is often proffered:
“The right of religious minorities in Britain to practice their religion exceeds any animal welfare considerations”.
The British National Party condemns mass immigration as the greatest threat to our native environment bar none; banning immigration and deporting Britain’s estimated one million illegal immigrants makes a mass house building programme unnecessary, thereby negating any need for further encroachment into our countryside..
The British National Party condemns ritual slaughter as blatant and inexcusable animal abuse; it is pledged to amend the Slaughter Acts so as to remove these vile exemptions, thereby ending this foul stain on Britain’s otherwise proud record on animal welfare.
The British National Party recognises climate change as a fact of life that has existed since this planet evolved an atmosphere, but it does not accept “man-made” global warming as anything other than a cynical globalist scam based on dishonest “science”, driven by vested interests and following a political agenda.
Consequently the British National Party believes it can only be to the benefit of genuine environmentalism that the Marxist “Melon Party” has encamped elsewhere.
