I thought I’d best introduce myself before posting on The Culturist Hub. I am Rosie Ward, a resident member of Young Independence (youth wing of UKIP) and a right-wing individual.
Originally, I started off writing about music, since British music has plummeted incredibly in the last thirty-odd years. However, as I grew up, I decided to write about issues that affect me/will affect me – this involved politics. I had always hated the left-wing, because I blamed them for many of the circumstances in which I had to live and be educated, i.e. having to earn an eighty percent scholarship/bursary to a private school because there were no grammar schools in Cornwall, and the school in my catchment area barely had a thirty percent GCSE pass rate. My parents had fallen on hard times, despite earning genuinely good degrees from genuinely good universities (Camborne School of Mines and University of London respectively).
It wasn’t till I became 15 that I started to gain an interest in politics, especially that of the right-wing parties such as the Conservatives and UKIP. I was a conservative at heart, as were my parents, but we began to notice Cameron’s weaknesses and his failure to repair Labour’s mess, and thus I turned to UKIP, a party promising libertarianism. As a teenager, this appealed greatly to me, as I wanted to be given the responsibility to make my own choices rather than have them dictated to me by Labour. UKIP still does appeal to me, even more so.
However, as our government became more and more bureaucratic while I was growing up, (and by bureaucratic, I mean obsessed with paper-work and ruling people’s lives), I observed the abolition of a childhood, and even suffered it myself – such as early sexualisation in state primary schools. What was more saddening was that girls who I went to school with myself became pregnant at the age of fourteen in order to gain a council flat – and, when I went home and told my parents, they would shake their head sadly and say, “well that’s what Labour want, isn’t it”. Therefore, as teenagers began more distracted with hedonistic pleasures such as sex, alcohol and photographing themselves, I began to realise that we lived in a bad, apathetic society which Labour had created.
I also hated Labour for destroying the education system, and the complete extermination of all grammar schools here in Cornwall. Due to the teenage age-group that had been forced into hedonistic pleasures as I described, many teenagers I knew lost their sense of ambition and simply reclined into a lifestyle of being reliant on the welfare state. Even they knew, deep down, that this was pretty dire. And that was the last straw – I realised that the socialists had created a state dependent on them, deliberately, and that people had to wake up to this fact, rather than just accepting it. So I tried to show people in the only way I knew how – by using the power of the pen!
What I aim to do in most of my articles is dispel lefty clichés, and prevent them from re-writing history, as many lefties love to do, as we observed after the passing of dear Maggie Thatcher. I personally blame the left-wing for corrupting Britain and creating the bad society in which we live in today – which contains unemployment, high teenage pregnancy rates and extreme poverty.
