Top of the Pops

I've always been a political trainspotter - I remember when Veritas split from UKIP and when the Popular Alliance split from Veritas. I'd almost forgot about the Popular Alliance, but I stumbled across them again the other day. They have some good ideas. National Anarchists should remember that we've lots of allies out there even if we don't realise it and in places we would not normally expect. The very 'normal' looking Popular Alliance for example say this:
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.
That's not a million miles from National Anarchists and other radical and revolutionary nationalists and tribalists. Of course we we differ on many things but so what? Build on what we have in common in line with the National Anarchist principal of pluralism - each to their own. Five years ago (what?!) I wrote about the need for a Grand Alliance against globalism and we still need one today.
