Interview with FranceTV's Salome Legrande
My interview with FranceTV last year in which I promoted neutrality, protectionism, state ownership of the utilities and anti-globalisation (in the vein of Jose Bove). My rough Translation of the original (I used internet translate): "We are also Eurosceptics!" In front of the Emmanuel center of London where the anti-European lobby Campaign for Independent Britain held its annual meeting, Russell White and two companions campaign for their own micro-party "Populist Alliance". "We support a neutral Great Britain like Switzerland" he says, while indoors, the cross-party organization prefers the Norwegian model. Also on economics the Populist Alliance tries to plough on.' We are for protectionism, we want to nationalize all energies: coal, oil and electricity ', states the employee of the railways who left Ukip in 2006 to create his own party, stayed in the state of embryo until then" Against the 'globalization', 'to defend the proletariat ', Russell White sees himself as a British 'José Bové'. And if he claims referendums to decide on everything, ' the true good definition of Populism ' that he demands, it does not come on European elections. ' We boycott these elections because they are not democratic ', he states. But those of his troops which will vote will make it for Nigel Farage and Ukip (United Kingdom Independence Party). http://blog.francetvinfo.fr/trans-europe-extremes/2014/04/29/en-grande-bretagne-un-petit-coin-deuroscepticisme-pour-tout-le-monde.html
 
Anti-Globalism

The Populist Party does not have a policy on individual nations or races, but it does oppose world government, power bloc politics and international treaties. We are anti-globalist and part of our anti-globalism is a policy of non-interference in other nation's affairs, opposition to interference in our policy making. We believe in localism - the small scale economy and decentralised society as envisaged by EF Schumacher, GK Chesterton and John Papworth. This is the direct opposite of internationalism and multinationalism, which is run by a remote global elite who are increasingly unnaccountable and powerful. A return to small nations, small governments, small farms and shops, and support for the "small man" against the big forces is what we strive for.

Producerism

Populists believe in full employment and that unemployment is a waste of talent and resources. It leads to alienation, lethargy and crime (the saying "the devil makes work for idle hands" is as true as ever!). It is impossible to plan for the future without a job or regular income. Full employment leads to greater purchasing power and lower welfare costs. A producerist society is one in which those who work hard get a just reward for their work. Companies which introduce the "living wage" should pay less in business taxes in order to allow them to do so without incurring huge losses. Populists believe that the current employment "pecking order" is bogus. It should be about who provides society with something of lasting value. Which workers would be required in a "survival situation"? The builder who provides the roof above our heads, the cook, the doctor, the farmer. Who makes the most money in the "real world?"..... the pop star, the catwalk model, the speculator, the premier league footballer...

"Capitalism" also rewards the unproductive such as X Factor winners, speculators and "agents" of various kinds. It promotes those who live off the backs of others, just the same as welfare socialism promotes idleness. We need a system where the money earned is directly related to the amount of hours and effort put into working, and the work should be of real worth to society such as building, medicine and general manufacturing. It seems those who would be the most useless on the proverbial desert island get the most out of the "free-market" system. Populists would change the tax system to redress the balance in favour of those who produce.

Our sympathies lie with those who live off the fruits of their own labour, rather than those who live off others. People who do "real" jobs, not agents and middlemen who live comfortably off the hard work of others. Populists support "Producers First" against those who scrounge off others or make their fortunes by shifting money between different countries.

Say we had to rebuild society from scratch -what good would an estate agent or advertiser be? We'd need builders, cooks, engineers, sanitation experts, farmers and fishermen, doctors and nurses, hunters, etc. If we needed to adapt to a hunter-gatherer society we would be in dire straits. Ray Mears would be very busy training people. We need to redistribute to the truly productive as I have described them. That cannot be done in the bogus free-market.....
