"We failed to cut immigration or tax, or to deal with the net zero and woke policies we have presided over for 14 years." - former UK Home Secretary Suella Braverman

Labour didn’t so much win the UK election as the Tories lost by abandoning their base.

Across the Channel in France a big shift to what the media pejoratively smear as the “far right” occurred.

Mainstream voters are increasingly rebelling against the control of unelected elites and seeking political alternatives that prioritize national sovereignty and traditional values.

The UK election resulted in a massive victory for Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour Party, a development that underscores a broader dissatisfaction with the Conservative Party rather than an attraction to the policies of what will be a woke government on steroids.

As former UK Home Secretary Suella Braverman pointed out, the Conservatives failed to deliver on the concerns of its base.

"We failed to cut immigration or tax, or to deal with the net zero and woke policies we have presided over for 14 years."

The same could largely be said of Malcolm Turnbull and Scott Morrison’s Liberal rule in Australia.

This failure to uphold conservative principles alienated the UK Conservatives’ voter base and inadvertently pushed many towards Labour, despite Labour’s lack of strong unpopularity.

Voter turnout was abysmal. The Tories were in disarray and people were not energised by Labour.

If there is no tangible difference in policy, people will gravitate to where leadership is perceived to be strongest and less dysfunctional.

That is the only way to explain Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews’ 2022 win. Something similar has just occurred in the UK.

Starmer might be more softly spoken that Andrews, but he is just as ideological.

Nigel Farage’s Reform UK, while only securing five seats, played a crucial role in fracturing the centre-right vote.

But people were hungry for true conservative leadership and Farage will be the main parliamentarian articulating an alternative vision for the future.

The underlying dissatisfaction among the electorate wasn’t a vote of confidence for Labour, but rather a rejection of the Conservative Party’s inability to adhere to its core values and its continued scandals.

This sentiment is reflective of a broader trend where voters are disillusioned with traditional parties that fail to represent their interests.

It is why Family First is garnering support here in Australia, although it is still early days.

In France, the political landscape is similarly dynamic. The rise of Marine Le Pen's Rassemblement National (RN) signifies a substantial shift towards nationalism and a rejection of the globalist agenda pushed by elites in Brussels and beyond.

Contrary to the mainstream media’s portrayal of RN as "far-right," their policies resonate with many ordinary French citizens who are concerned about national sovereignty, immigration, and preserving their cultural identity.

Nick Cater aptly criticizes the labelling of Le Pen's supporters as "far-right" and even as Nazis, describing it as "nothing more than juvenile abuse" and emphasizing that such rhetoric is used to dismiss the legitimate concerns of the mainstream populace.

(Nick Cater is one of the speakers at the Family First National Conference on September 7).

The legacy media is losing credibility fast and its continued demonisation of mainstream concerns only accelerates its demise.

The RN’s success, becoming the largest party in the French parliament, reflects a significant alignment with the concerns of everyday citizens who feel neglected by the globalist policies of the traditional parties.

These political shifts in Europe are instructive for Australia. The mainstream appeal of parties like RN in France and Reform UK highlights a growing rejection of policies dictated by unelected elites and a resurgence of support for national sovereignty and conservative values.

This mirrors the objectives of the Family First Party, which advocates for policies grounded in common sense and reflective of the mainstream concerns of Australians.

Family First’s manifesto, which emphasises national sovereignty, traditional values, and sensible economic policies, finds resonance in the successes of these European movements.

The clear message from voters in the UK and France is a rejection of the status quo and a demand for genuine representation that prioritizes the interests of ordinary citizens over globalist agendas.

As the Family First Party continues to champion these principles in Australia, the European political landscape provides both a warning and a beacon of hope.

The failure of conservatives to uphold conservative values in the UK led to a significant political shift, demonstrating the importance of steadfast commitment to core principles.

Too many Liberal governments in Australia have been Labor-lite.

The political developments in the UK and France offer valuable lessons for Australia. The growing disenchantment with unelected elites and the resurgence of nationalistic, conservative policies underscore a broader trend that aligns with the Family First Party's vision.

By staying true to its principles, the Family First Party can continue to provide a strong, representative voice for Australians, advocating for policies that reflect the mainstream concerns of the nation.
