“My son still finds it very difficult to countenance this,” she told The Daily Beast.

“It’s widely recognized that Left and Right have lost their meaning so we need new principles to base our politics on, and for me the question of democracy is the key—I’m not doing this for Nigel Farage.”

  1. There was never much difference between the loonies of either left or right.

  2. She has the backing of the leader of the cult himself Frank Furedi. No surprise. They have been on this rightward trajectory for years.

    • National Populism is indeed their politics these days.

      From backing Obran’s Hungary to this:

      Thierry Baudet: not your typical populist

      His insurgent Dutch party cannot be so easily dismissed by the elite.

      The FvD is often described by its enemies as a far-right, xenophobic populist party. But in a different era its politics would have been characterised as socially conservative with a dash of classical liberalism. It is critical of the EU and opposed to inflicting the costs of environmentalist measures on the people of the Netherlands. It argues for the adoption of the Australian system of immigration control. Its leaders argue for cultural policies that support and defend what they perceive to be the foundational values of Western civilisation.

      The reaction to the leadership of the Forum – Henk Otten, Theo Hiddema and especially Thierry Baudet – is almost as interesting as the meteoric rise of the party itself. Opponents of the FvD resent the fact that its leaders are intelligent and highly educated people. They cannot be dismissed as populist simpletons or trashy deplorables.
