Why did Mosley fail to gain power in Britain? If the leftist backlash at the Battle of Cable Street never happened or went differently, could he have been more powerful?

You're acting as if you necessarily should have gained power.

because brits aren't passive, subservient cucks like the Germans or the Italians or the Russians

The battle of cable street wasn't a coup attempt, it was a protest march being BTFO.

Fascism never had much appeal in Britain - it's hard to talk about the need to reverse national humiliation with a strong leader when you already rule half the fucking world. A few butthurt aristocrats and contrarian intellectuals, but never anything near an electoral majority.

The British cannot into political extremism. They never had a communist party worth mentioning either. Being radical is reserved for cranks and oddballs, the public will never countenance it.

If you are going to ask a equation, don't poison it with your opinion about the legitimacy of the answers you will receive, its childish.

Being Radical is reserved for a special place called Ulster.

Ulster is a containment board

I think it's less a containment board, and more a designated shitposting board, like /s4s/.

British politics are so averse to extremism, because if you want to march around in paramilitary uniforms and fight streetbattles, you go to Belfast.

Then you come back, and it's like Vegas.

Thanks for proving my point. Small isolated instances with little mass support. No real electoral clout like Communist or Fascist parties in other countries.

By the 1930s it was getting pretty clear that the sun was starting to set on the British Empire. The worldwide depression only made it worse.
