    (From "Twilight of the Gods - The Battle for Britain, 1974-1981")

    Chapter One

    ________________________________________________________


    The Curious Election of 1975


    BACKGROUND:

    Having initially won his majority in the chaotic 1970 more due to Wilson's unpopularity than any of his own successes, Edward Heath found himself ruling a country in disarray, and one which he would ultimately be unable to "fix" as easily as he might have promised. Indeed towards the end of his first term Heath could not truly say he had achieved all that much - Britain had acceded to the EEC, but the economy was in one of the worse states it had been since the war (partly thanks to the disastrous monetarist policies employed early in his first term) and the government locked in a deadly struggle with the Trade Unions. Indeed by 1974 the country seemed to have entered a state of emergency, and Heath initially saw fit to call a General Election, but after a series of delays and data from the party's central office seeming to suggest a Labour victory, Heath decided to hold off. He theorised that, if he held on until 1975, economic recovery may have been forthcoming - he could not possibly have been more wrong.

    In November 1974 after a period of relative peace the Trade Unions (led by the National Union of Mineworkers) began a series of strikes, necessitating the extension of the "Three Day Week". There had been attempts to claw a strike in February of the same year, but the mood within the upper echelons of the NUM was that a strike was unnecessary and would be better held in Autumn when it could have the most effect - the lack of immediate strike action has been considered by some (such as the revisionist Marxist historian Owen Jones) as one of the reasons Heath abstained from holding an early election, though no serious or substantial evidence has ever been put forward to support this. When the strike was declared on the 5th November (which led to the Telegraph to create an image with Joe Gormley -then leader of the NUM- as Guy Fawkes despite Gormley's attempts to moderate the strikers), Heath remained reticent about calling an election as there had not gene the element of recovery which he had anticipated. It was only the increased speculation that the "Three Day Week" might need to be reduced even further (in spite of Heath's promises in October that the emergency was nearly over) led Heath to begin preparing for a January General Election.

    The Labour Party, still relatively confident in the leadership of Harold Wilson (partly in thanks to the elimination of Roy Jenkins as a threat when he resigned from the Deputy Leadership) was prepared for a General Election to come, and Wilson had been negotiating with the Trade Unions to find a solution to the conflict between them and the government. These secret and highly conciliatory negotiations coupled with the increased influence of Shadow Secretary of State for Tony Benn - whose shift to the Hard Left was by now well underway - led to Labour seeming to pitch itself to the left in opposition to the centrist and corporatist policies which the Heath government was coming to support. One side effect of this was that public perception of Labour increasingly became associated with the militant aspects of the Trade Unions - to many at best Labour were useful stooges of Marxist Trade Union infiltrators, and at worse they were part of a vast left-wing conspiracy to (in the words of future Prime Minister Norman Tebbit) "overthrow the foundations of Britain as a free and democratic state." This association, whilst shoring up Wilson's credentials with the party's Bevanite left wing, damaged its reputation with the largely centrist voting public.

    Initially wanting to call the election in December 1974,

    Prologue:

    ____________________

    "The First Juror of the People's Court wishes now to announce his verdict." The sneering Clerk of the Court declared, his reptilian eyes briefly flicking to Oswald.

    The former Prime Minister didn't return a glance at the man, and instead inspected his nails with exaggerated interest, scratching out the faintest crumb of dust before looking up and scanning the "Courtroom" for the "First Juror". Why these nasty little reds couldn't use the word "Judge" he didn't understand, and he'd made the mistake of being one of them for a time... one person being a "Judge" was probably indicative of too much seniority over the rest of the workers, peasants, and soldiers of the British People's Commonwealth. It didn't matter much, he supposed... he didn't have any time to find out, and probably wouldn't have bothered to if he did - none of it mattered all that much, half the people presiding over his trial would almost certainly have been purged within the year.

    Finally the "First Juror" appeared.

    "Order! Order" He shouted, calming the crowds who had come to witness the great dictator felled. When the crowd had been hushed, he finally spoke again, "I, Thomas Henry Wintringham, with the authority of the Workers, People, and Soldiers of Britain, do find you, Oswald Earnald Mosley, guilty of the greatest offences against the British people, not including treason, collaboration with tyranny, and crimes against the rights and liberties of the people. The sentence for these crimes..." he paused, raising his hand to hush the crowd in what Oswald regarded as the most tasteless piece of showmanship in British judicial history, "Is death."

    The mass of mankind watching the defendant in the dock began to cheer, but Oswald continued to maintain a mask of calm and composure. He had been expecting that, and their jubilation would not change what he planned to do... the only thing which he
    could do. The balding Red Army general was reveling in the public support for his verdict, in the pretense that this trial had ever meant anything, and that his verdict hadn't been decided months before he'd even been captured. At least they didn't get Phillip... Oswald supposed - the things they would have done to his leader would have been horrific, but the Germans had seen to that before the people could even get close.

    "Do you have any final words, Comrade Mosley?" Wintringham asked. His voice rang with a note of disgust.

    "I do, if you will allow me them." Oswald said. His voice sounded hollow - he wondered if he had the energy for this.

    "Of course."

    "Thank you." Oswald stood, took in a deep breath, and then began; "Today I stand before you as a man condemned and yet you, those who condemn me, do so upon false authority and false pretenses. It is the great failing of your characters that you cannot comprehend what we did... what we sought to achieve. Everything I did, every atrocity you find me guilty of I did for my country - I did in order to advance the destiny of this nation and propel her toward greatness. It is your failing that you cannot comprehend anything higher than your puny selves, that you claim to value the collective justice only as long as that means you have coal in your hearth and bread in your bellies. Your sham collectivism has no underpinning but greed, else you would realise that all we did - all the sacrifices we made - was for the greater good... that without us this country would have been doomed to incompetence and collapse... Without us charlatans like your pathetic First Juror might have dominion over the vast mass of mankind, and the whole order of humanity be eroded and replaced with the perversions of Bolshevism and the rampant greed to which you now succumb. We set out to achieve a better world, to reach forward to the bright and glorious future. We failed not because of any fault of our own, but because you - the people - were too selfish ever to have deserved it."

    There was a moment of stunned silence and then, with a flick of Wintringham's hand, Oswald was dragged out of the dock as the people surged over the railings to try and get to him. He grinned at the anger he had inspired, watched as they rabidly clawed their way towards him, and then he was being carried up and out of the room, the guards who had tried to protect him having been pushed aside. The people had taken him now - true "People's Justice" was to be exacted... he didn't mind - what difference really existed between this and a Red Army firing squad?

    He watched as they slung a noose over the branch of a tree outside. He was being carried towards it, the mob baying for blood.

    This is it, old boy. He thought as they stood him atop a box, affixing the rope around his neck - he did not struggle. One of them kicked the box out from under his feet.

    He thought of England.
