An Autistic Conservative Inspired by Zionism

My Blue London Election Reflections

This story is a reflection on my journey through the campaign for the London Mayoral Election. It was a very trying experience for me but I remained resilient and determined to be stronger than ever. This article was originally meant for the Havering Daily and now that the General Election has been called it is worth revisiting what issues were on the local levels that are likely to reverberate onto the national issues.

I put on a brave face like I always do because I need to show the best traits of my autistic self. It is a time for me to show off and push my autistic conservative objectives, with the one at the moment being to liberate London from wasteful and ineffective mobility policies that harm the city’s ability to do business. One of them is for the ULEZ policy to go so that disabled people with the need for cars can go about without paying expensive government fares that would just box people like me into segregated areas.

I wanted to see to it that Susan and the Conservatives were elected to make London richer and stronger again. London was already in economic decline and had not properly recovered from the effects of the pandemic. There is still low productivity in the business and retail sector, which is less than the national average according to the London School of Economics. The city needed to attract new types of businesses as well as investment from the private sector.

We had a plan to turn business around by giving more means of freedom to move around London and cutting back on red tape in places. This was essential to eliminating enterprise fatigue that was keeping the city stagnant. Specifically in the Canary Wharf district which has seen more office spaces vacant and they needed to be either filled or repurposed for the science sector. As someone who is an active homeworker, I put suggestions to Susan to use that to an advantage by promoting remote working to get disabled people into employment. To me that can show that the Conservative City Hall team’s vision of a useful value of people like me working for London in inventive ways to provide more opportunities.

I am glad to have been of service to support Susan Hall in the London Mayoral election. I was very active in the moment of trying to save London from its endless list of sickness and troubles, and I think Susan could have done something about it on day one. The energy required to work in these campaigns is very demanding. However, I was able to handle it because of my autism dependency on routine and organisation to keep me going well. I may have had the odd burnout from some days of working and I did allow myself some downtime to gather my thoughts and journal them.

In Havering and Redbridge Susan Hall won with 48.1% of the vote (vote count: 82,859) and Sadiq Khan secured 29.5% of the vote (vote count: 50,780). Susan also did well in four other constituencies in the south and north-west of London. Based on this data I would say that Khan and Labour are more popular in the inner London areas where the demographics show that he is serving them better with more resources and benefits than the outer London areas. I should know, because I commute from Romford to Whitechapel and walk through Tower Hamlets towards Hackney. They seem to have things slightly better than us.

Out here in Havering, we are suffering from policies under Sadiq Khan’s administration that are widely felt by the people here. Such as the lack of policing and the concentration of house-building programmes to house the poorer classes from places like Newham and Kensington and Chelsea. He puts more emphasis on supporting inner London than he does for outer London. During the first year of his administration, he merged Havering’s police force with Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham and that reduced their provisions.

I find it incredibly bewildering that Sadiq Khan has won, being that he has such a bad record on crime, transport management, strikes and housing. There is no way that he could have secured a third term on a record like that with a significant majority of 43.8% to Susan Hall’s 32.7%. What kind of voters could have supported him? I would say that Khan’s electoral victory is down to his support from the inner London areas where most of the population are middle-class socialists that favour gentrification, and monoculture ethnic minorities who choose according to their preferred racial identity politics.

On that subject, it is worth mentioning that the Israel-Gaza conflict did play a substantial part in these elections. I encountered some of Labour’s Muslim supporters who were fuming about Sir Keir Starmer’s position on a ceasefire. I was more shocked and horrified to see them in such a mood that they were voting based on a foreign conflict in this way. This is a sign of dark things to come for Britain where antisemitism is constantly snaking through London’s streets, and sectarianism is now a mainstream feature of British politics. The social justice activists here are just pitting communities and people against each other and can’t admit their own prejudices, because they claim to be the highest order of morality with extreme virtuosity.

I had a personal vendetta in this election that I shared with Susan Hall. I told her that it would be imperative to stand with the Jewish community in their time of need. Defending Jewish prestige in London was an important matter for me in this election. She agreed as I did that Jewish people in London were being scared away from the city centre because of this antisemitic atmosphere. I was even standing up against the Jew-haters by bravely wearing my “Bring Them Home” dog tag on the doorstep. If I were in charge of this situation I would start a British nationalist integration plan and make parallel livelihoods like ghettos illegal.

From the way that Susan Hall won over Romford and Hornchurch, I knew that the people in Havering had strong feelings of optimism and a thirst for enterprise, for which they knew better. The way that this election turned out for us shows that London has got a lot of rotting areas that need cleaning of toxic politics as they thrive with discontent. Embracing political diversity is a conservative nationalist’s best strength and socialism just promotes identity politics like a hive of monocultures fighting at each other.
