The defendant attacked a Jew lawyer who was himself, not long before the attack, quite violent (and had to be restrained). The defendant then, having been ejected from the pub where both parties had been drinking (incidentally, one in which I myself have had a drink once or twice, though about 30 years ago) returned and attacked the alleged victim, so could not, in law, have pleaded self-defence.
The alleged victim apparently suffered considerable injury.
I can see why the defendant was charged with “s.18” GBH (Grievous Bodily Harm with intent) rather than the lesser “s.20” GBH, the defendant having returned to the alleged victim (accompanied by his, the defendant’s, sons). There was, plainly, an intent both to attack the alleged victim and also to inflict serious harm upon him.
Where I find the matter unjust is in the sentence.
A nine-year sentence! Almost ludicrously harsh on the facts (at least as presented in the newspaper), and in this case the defendant has been sentenced to serve 2/3 of that, meaning 6 years.
I hope that the defendant will appeal this seemingly harsh sentence.
Another point that interested me was that the alleged victim says that the defendant “goaded” him “into revealing [the alleged victim’s] ethnicity“, i.e. that he is a Jew. So he wanted to keep it secret or unremarked upon to some extent? I seem to recall that Dr. Goebbels once commented on what he implied was a typical attitude:
We sometimes forget quite how violent and uncontrolled London life was in the past (too).
John Rentoul’s quiz tweet of the week
Well, I usually do better than John Rentoul (almost always, in fact), and this week was no exception: John Rentoul scored 6/10, but I beat him easily with 9/10. The question to which I did not know the answer was question 6 (though I looked up the answer and realized that I did, sort-of, or in the back of my mind, know it, so I nearly scored, for the first time in these Saturday quizzes, 10/10. Damn). Still, 9/10 it is, this week.
Labour now represents mainly the ethnic minorities (except Jews, wealthy Indians and Chinese), the public service workers (esp. NHS), and the so-called “woke”. So where should it be based? Brixton? Spitalfields?
I wonder whether that clown is receiving (but unable to touch at present) monies deposited offshore for him, or has any promise of such monies? I should not be surprised.
Well, the UK electoral system is manifestly unjust, of course. The following example from the General Election of 2015 makes the point:
Boundaries can be (and are) drawn to achieve a desired result:
Alles gut…but frankly I think that my analysis, in blogs of the past couple of days, has been far better (immodest though that reads…).
The reality is that people are pushing back against both main System parties. In areas usually Conservative-voting, against the Conservative Party; in areas traditionally Labour, against the Labour Party. The people are frustrated.
The voters (and the many millions of non-voters) want something different, yet are presented with a System-controlled fake binary choice (plus a LibDem “dustbin” option, and here and there a few “controlled opposition” crank options), neither of which two main options they really want, or even respect.
Exactly. I have been blogging in that vein and, before that, tweeting (until a Jew pack managed to have my Twitter account closed down in 2018), for years.
In the UK, the self-describing “Left” and/or pseudo-socialists put out 95% of their effort into “deplatforming” those they have decided to hate (especially people like me, those with real ideas), rather than trying to present an alternative to global finance-capitalism, the New World Order (NWO), and Zionist Occupation Government(s) (ZOG).
In fact, the self-describing “Left” has no alternative to present, unless you count as a alternative world-view some farrago of “antiracism”, “antisexism”, compliance with Jew-Zionism (sometimes, absurdly, mixed with anti-Israel-ism), “holocaust” fables, anti-“Nazi” rhetoric, and a vague belief in the goodness or efficacy of washed-up societies such as Cuba or Venezuela.
The self-describing “Left” has not really understood yet that history left them behind in 1989 (some of them don’t even understand that history started to leave them behind in 1956).
Here we are, one year away from the next great pivotal year in the 33-year cycle, 2022, with the international conspiracy/consensus moving towards its “Great Reset”, and people in the UK are still talking or tweeting about “the Tories” and “Labour”, as if they really mean something fundamental. Those people do not understand that the System parties in the UK are like Soviet chocolate boxes— the chocolates differing in shape but with identical fillings.
As for “Leftism” (I myself have never designated politics as “Left” or “Right”), the following cartoon says it all:
The British people —what’s left of them— do not want or welcome evidence, they just want to be told that they are safe in all circumstances. All measures are accepted if that is the justification.
You have seen it in the last year or more of “panicdemic” measures. People are told that ludicrous facemask muzzles save them from the dreaded virus (which has —supposedly— killed about 1 in 1,000 UK people, but really far far fewer), and people want to believe that. Those who do not (and fail to wear them as mandated) are fined, and so deterred from not wearing facemasks. cf. “holocaust” “denial” laws in some countries.
The same or similar applies, mutatis mutandis, to the vaccine promotion etc.
The days are long gone when the Soviet Union might have invaded the UK; Russia today has no wish to do so, and no ideology to underpin that kind of strategy. If Russia ever were to invade, though, the British of today would roll up like a map…
Once the Queen goes, they all have to go. New page. New words. New lives.
Especially now that Labour has become a basically minority-ethnic party; at least, that is very much the direction of travel. Which means that most of the white British, especially white English, have just switched off from Labour. They might or might not vote Conservative, but Labour is very much yesterday’s news.
Again, nothing much to be added to that, except that that very slender Conservative Party win (another by-election, in 1959) was on different constituency boundaries.
Another accurate tweet.
Could that be because the voters feel that they have had no real choice?
As for Sky News, their figure for yesterday’s turnout was wildly wrong. Real turnout was about 42%…
More about Hartlepool later.
That Jessica Simor (((person))) seems to have little political nous; was a candidate for the always-doomed “Change UK” short-lived party, and gives me the impression of someone who seems to think that she takes the moral high ground. The air in Hampstead seems to have that effect on some of its residents. Oh, no, wait…https://order-order.com/people/jessica-simor/.
I enjoyed especially her tweet about how others have “unbelievable silver spoons stuck in their mouths“, which is often true in the UK (as elsewhere) but comes awkwardly from a woman who attended St. Paul’s Girls’ School and St. Catherine’s College, Oxford, followed by both City University and Kings’ College London!
Seems that some members of the Bar can, e.g. swear prolifically at people on Twitter without (Bar) censure, yet I —who only tweeted fivecompletely true and accurate tweets on political and social issues— had to be disbarred to placate the Jewish lobby: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/. Oh, and the great “human rights” barristers at, inter alia, Matrix Chambers (which Jessica Simor co-founded in 2000), said and tweeted not a word in defence of my rights to socio-political expression.
I was also surprised that the Simor woman, in one tweet in that Guido Fawkes report above, renders “I could make neither head nor tail of it” as “I couldn’t make head or tale of it.” That’s no more than semi-literate.

Yes. My mother-in-law (aged 99) was recently in hospital for a fracture. After 2 weeks under the hit or miss care of the NHS, she was routinely tested for “Covid-19”. Positive. She had no symptoms. Obviously picked up the virus in the hospital. Was discharged a week or so later. Had she then died from any cause, even in a car accident, she would have become another “died within 28 days of a positive test” statistic. The whole thing is a ludicrous misapplication of statistics and propaganda.
Sadly deluded. A student or ex-student who would have been more at home in Blair/Brown days, it seems.
Ha ha! How could this unthinking young Labourite miss the 4 years of Jewish-lobby bile against Corbyn? Every day, and on every msm platform! I am not even a Labour supporter (or member, or voter), and it was unmissable! Plots, conspiracies, legal cases…Labour Friends of Israel MPs and the rest.
Conservative Party first with 51.9%; Labour second with…28.7%. That’s the headline, of course.
Interesting to note that the eligible electorate is over 70,000. Of those, only 29,933 turned out to vote, and only 8,589 voted Labour. About 12% of the entire eligible electorate.
The demise of the LibDems was confirmed (again): 7th place, with only 1.2% of the vote (349 votes). The worst-ever LibDem result in the constituency, by far. The LibDems got 4.1% last time, in 2019; in 2017, only 1.8%, and in the 2015 meltdown, 1.9% (2010, 17.1%, but in 2005 they got 30.4% and 2nd place, and in 2004, which was another by-election, 34.2% and another 2nd place, that time only 6 and a half points behind the winning Labour candidate).
The 3rd, 4th and 5th places at Hartlepool were taken by an Independent, Sam (Samantha) Lee, a local businesswoman and former local journalist (note: local…), who achieved a creditable nearly 10% of the vote, then “Heritage” and “Reform UK” parties, effectively UKIP/Brexit Party offshoots. 1.6% and 1.2% respectively. Green Party took 6th place, also with 1.2% of the vote.
The Northern Independence Party, which I thought would get around 5%, in fact attracted only 235 votes (0.8%, 10th placed) and looks washed-up already. I had thought that their concept might prove attractive to many “up North”. Seems not. Not so far, at least. Rather unimpressive also that they are so disorganized that they failed to register in time with the Electoral Commission, so their candidate, Thelma Walker, a former Labour MP, had to stand as Independent. They might have done better under their real banner.
The remaining eight candidates were either Independents or crank-party candidates, and only one got more than 0.5% of the vote.
What does this result mean, in the wider sense? Firstly, that Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer is too colourless to make any impression at all. Part-Jew chancer and fraud “Boris” may be corrupt, incompetent, and unfit to be an MP, let alone PM, but he has (carefully-cultivated) presence, a fact recognized by the huge Munich-style effigy of him that appeared at the by-election count. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnival_in_Germany,_Switzerland_and_Austria#Alemannic_Fastnacht
Reminiscent of Berlusconi in Italy a number of years ago, or of some banana republic.
As I have blogged before, Keir Starmer has nothing to offer the people, and nothing to say except “I was the Director of Public Prosecutions!”. Nothing to offer. Nothing at all. As some wag commented on Twitter a while ago, were the “Conservatives” to open workhouses in the manner of the Dickensian age, Starmer-Labour would be there to agree with the policy, but say that it should be run more efficiently and slightly more fairly…
Then we recall Starmer on his knees, with dim deputy Angela Rayner, not so long ago, professing fealty to the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense. That must have played well in Hartlepool, which has a proud, if poor, English/British history…
The problem Labour has, though, is not Starmer but its own identity and role. As I have blogged before, the System parties were all products of the 19th and early-20th centuries (taking the LibDems to be an extension of the old and once-governing Liberal Party).
Somewhere like Hartlepool may look superficially similar to what it did in 2010, 1997, 1980s, even 1960s, but the social changes in the UK have been huge. No large nationalized industries. Few manufacturing industries at all. A growing atomization of the individual in society. Lessening “community”. Growing socio-political volatility. Insecurity. The Internet. In places such as Hartlepool, a considerable drug problem to add to the traditional drink problem.
The old parties have no answers, and not even any questions, about all of that. What Hartlepool and many other places want, perhaps without knowing it, is social nationalism. A new socio-national community to replace the old forms of community that are now all but gone.
Look at that by-election: not one social-national candidate, not even from the joke “parties” such as For Britain or Britain First. The voters wanted rid of Labour. If you like, “Problem— get rid of fake Labour; Method— vote fake Conservative, or stay at home and watch fake reality-TV shows”. Apathy and abstention was enough to sink Labour, as in 2019.
Short and sweet (and true).
She’s right (for once). Where (I apprehend) she is wrong is in impliedly saying that Labour did better in 2017 because of Corbyn. Partly-true maybe, but had UKIP not taken 11.5% of the vote in 2017, Labour, though still in front, would have won by only about 5 points.
It was not always thus. I have never been a Labour member, supporter, or even voter, but many Labour MPs up until the 1980s were decent British ex-workers, others were at least reasonable intellectuals of sorts. I might not have agreed with all they said or did, but they had integrity, most of them. Now look! Since, say, 1989, freeloaders, careerists, expenses cheats, fakes. Jess Phillips, Ruth Smeeth (now binned), Patricia Hewitt (gone), Mandelson, the whole pack of Blair/Jew lobby MPs. Many are still around, unfortunately.
Look at Williams, the Hartlepool candidate that Labour put up: a medic who preferred to “get ahead” as an MP; formerly failed in another constituency; wanted to become a Police and Crime Commissioner too. Rather “dodgy” generally; pro-EU, pro-Jewish Lobby. Never trust a doctor who becomes a politician. A good rule of thumb, by the way.
“During the by-election campaign, Williams apologised for a tweet he posted in 2011: “Do you have a favourite Tory MILF? Mind-blowing dinner table conversation”. He was defended by Starmer, while Labour peer and former shadow Attorney General Shami Chakrabarticalled for him to be replaced “immediately”. Williams’ campaign featured a pledge to return hospital services to the town, but was accused of hypocrisy after it emerged that he was a co-author of a clinical commissioning group report which recommended the closure of those services in 2013.” [Wikipedia]
A social-national party, were one allowed to exist at all in what is a society of increasing socio-political repression, might not be “voted in” —because the (((System))) would probably make sure of that— but would be a way of gathering support for an attempt to seize power by any other means.

A pretty silly tweet. Corbyn, whatever his faults, was at least as “electable” as Starmer, but that is, well, not very…and the tweeter ignores the 4 years of Jewish propaganda carried on against Corbyn, on a daily basis, and on every single msm platform (and many online too).
Every single one of those MPs is either a Jew or a Jewish-lobby puppet. Expenses freeloader and anti-Corbyn plotter Tom Watson has not only been given the very well-paid sinecure previously occupied by Michael Dugher (another puppet of “the lobby”, now head of a betting organization) but is even getting paid non-political TV appearances. As people say, “ker-ching”…
Two stupid tweets for the price of one. They would probably like that Nigerian bigmouth, Femi Oluwole [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole], still posing as a political activist while living in his affluent parents’ attic, to be Labour leader! Don’t laugh too quickly! Of course, by then Labour will be about as popular as the LibDems are now…
For “British media”, read “Labour Party members”…
Maybe, but probably not. Had Corbyn done that, the Corbyn candidate would have got about half, maybe more, of the Labour vote at Hartlepool, but even taking that as maybe 25%+ (half of 50%+ as in the past), that would still be a close contest if the Conservatives were not also challenged by (as in the past) a Brexit Party or similar; which would probably still result in a Con victory…
System politicians rarely start new parties, mainly because few succeed. One of the few that might have done was Enoch Powell. He just might have gathered enough support from Conservative voters and others (eg National Front voters) to get a bloc of MPs. He decided, though, to reprise Parnell [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Stewart_Parnell], who controlled a bloc of pro-Home Rule (Irish Independence or autonomy) MPs in the 19thC; Powell thought to do that, on a smaller scale, with Ulster Unionists. Never got anywhere. He was too tied up in traditional thinking. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enoch_Powell.
If that was indeed Powell’s strategy, it was based on faulty thinking (surprising, in someone of Powell’s intellect): Parnell controlled around 90 MPs in the late 19thC; Powell could never have hoped for that with the Ulster Unionists.
In fact, that 2015 poster was one of the better Labour attempts. I suppose that the very silly tweeter hates the “control immigration” bit…but the migration-invasion and encouragement thereof was one of the aspects of Corbynism that appalled many voters…
Listening to PM for the first time in quite a while, heard an interview with Ben Houcher, the Teesside Mayor. Not very impressive in terms of content, but full of confidence, and his electoral result speaks for itself.
Then came an interview with three Labour activists. Not very interesting, though I agreed with their point that “Boris” is “an act” (as they put it), “supported by a sycophantic mass media“. Also true. None openly called for Starmer to go. They really should…
The most interesting thing heard was from the presenter, Evan Davis, in the Ben Houcher interview, who expressed the idea that politics in the UK is “going beyond Left and Right“. Well, I have been saying that for years, decades even. Always the Cassandra, usually right but rarely listened to…
Good to see.
Typical (?) UK Labour supporter of 2021: “ Historical novelist, THE SEA GATE out now. UK publisher of GRRM, Hobb, Lawrence, Feist; ex-Tolkien publisher; gardener. Married to a Berber chef. #CFC#Chelsea...Location Cornwall/Morocco”…[https://www.janejohnsonbooks.com/].
Not that she is entirely wrong about the influence of the mass media, but she completely fails to see that the Conservative Party won Hartlepool not because the eligible voters were supporters of the Conservative Party and/or finance-capitalism (egged on by the msm) and voted accordingly, but because out of 70,000+ eligible voters, only about 8,500 went out to vote Labour.
Why? Because Labour is useless. It is now once more completely in the pocket of the Jew/Zionist/Israel lobby, and its MPs are mostly worthless chancers, expenses blodgers, and/or careerists; many of them (especially but certainly not exclusively the blacks) are also as thick as two short planks. Also, Labour scarcely opposes the Government at all, but supports it, or cavils at unimportant details (Keir Starmer was, after all, best known as a prosecution lawyer who became DPP).
The Conservative Party did not win Hartlepool— Labour lost it.
Incidentally, that lady “@JaneJohnsonBakr” is a director of HarperCollins publishers: https://www.janejohnsonbooks.com/about/. Whatever her ideological leanings, I think that it can probably be surmised that she does not have the financial struggles common to most of the voters of Hartlepool, and it sounds as though she is far from them in terms of outlook, as well.
I do not think it unfair to say that there we have Labour’s problem in a nutshell. It can get the (apparent) support of a presumably rather affluent lady who, with her Moroccan husband, splits her time between her houses in Cornwall and Morocco, but it cannot get the support of over 60,000 of the 70,000 struggling English voters of somewhere like Hartlepool…
Here’s another of the lady’s tweets, expressly contemptuous of the British people:
I wonder whether she supported Tony Blair’s government?…
Not that she is wrong about “Boris”, of course; and the people are easily fooled, that’s true.
Mainstream media are predicting a Conservative Party victory, while continuing to pretend that a contest between two very similar System parties (and a few cranks and no-chances) is “democracy”, though it seems that, thanks to FPTP voting, the main binary choices will capture about 90%, maybe 95%, of all votes cast.
Turnout will probably be quite low.
I was just looking at a couple of tweets about the contest:
That refers to the outgoing (going, gone…) MP, Mike Hill, who denies sex pest allegations but who decided to stand down as MP because of them. Hm…Still, he can always return to work at the local library…or do a bit of useless trade union droning…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Hill_(British_politician)].
People may be surprised that I repost the tweet of a Jew-Zionist scribbler, but “there is no religion higher than truth”, as they say.
The fact is that communities such as Hartlepool are clutching at straws. That does not mean that they are totally stupid. True, the misnamed “Conservatives” are not worthy, and they have been in power, nationally, for 11 years now, but the voters of Hartlepool have had Labour MPs for nearly 50 years, and feel exploited. They can only bin Labour by voting Conservative (or at least staying at home and not voting).
In some countries at some times, failed political parties (members of) face imprisonment and even execution. In the UK, we are kinder. Those parties simply face political death. It happened to the once-all-powerful Liberal Party (though a ghostly shadow still exists, the LibDems), it is now happening to both Labour and Conservative parties. Labour first to go, it seems.
That one, above, the well-known Jewish actress, used to block me on Twitter, I think (my Twitter account was closed down by a Jew-Zionist claque-barrage of complaints in 2018) and even tweet against me occasionally. Correct here, though. Look at that tweet by one Grace Blakely:
Where does one start? Perhaps by expressing “surprise” (no, not really, not these days) that a young woman [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Blakeley] from a privileged background, privately-educated in Hampshire, and with (for what it is worth these days) a “First” from Oxford, prefers the philosophical-psychological term “ressentiment” to the straightforward standard English “resentment”…I suppose that she picked that up while doing her PPE back-of-postcard degree at St. Peter’s, Oxford. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ressentiment
Secondly, by examining the claim that those with a “degree” (even if a “McDegree” from a “McUniversity”, are “the educated“. That is so Blair-1997…pretty outdated as a expression of reality.
Sadly, the “degree” from a “university” is no guarantee of real education, now that nearly half of all persons over 17 go to a “university”. Going to Oxford is no guarantee either, as both Grace Blakely and, for another example, Louise Mensch (if anyone remembers that stupid creature) bear witness.
As a matter of fact, both of the above are also examples of the pointlessness or near-pointlessness of Twitter. Grace Blakely has, apparently, 132,000 Twitter “followers”, while the lunatic Mensch has (looking at her Twitter account for the first time in a couple of years) 281,000! One Direction pop group has 31.5 million!
Grace Blakely is apparently appointed as a Visiting Fellow at the Open University! This country is so screwed, it really is…

So what is left of the Royal Navy is being used to show the flag in a fishing dispute with a close ally of this country (Brexit notwithstanding), but 200+ migrant-invaders are being “rescued” and then escorted across the Channel by the same navy and/or the ludicrous Border Force, every day. Mad…
Were I maliciously-inclined, I suppose that I should encourage pedestrians to push off the riders whenever seen. However, where I live there are few “e-scooters” (in fact, I believe that I have only seen one), so on this occasion I shall say “none of my business”.
The revolution devours its own children…
This time, involving the tiny and unpleasant “Resisting Hate” “antifascist” troll-org, led by the well-fed Roanna Carleton-Taylor of (near) Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
Seems that either Roanna Carleton-Taylor or an associate (she uses several Twitter accounts anyway) posted something involving a banana to a black, which apparently is considered “racist”, though I cannot see why. I myself eat the occasional yellow fruit, after all.
Anyway, there ensued a several-days-long Twitter storm in a teacup, which dragged in “Dr” Louise Raw (prolific pro-“antifa” tweeter) and at least one mentally-disturbed Jewish Zionist woman from North London.
“Dr” Raw has not tweeted for the past week, I now notice.
I concede that I have not followed the nonsense, and am merely amused at the supposed “anti-racists” of different types all tearing chunks out of each other.
The denouement? Roanna “antifashwitch”, the former “@Witchofpeace” on Twitter (she tweeted once about how she kills spiders when putting a curse on someone! Odd…I thought that that brought down bad luck upon the killer…), has changed her account to “@oilpaintwitch” and has posted this:
Can you “resign” from an “organization” that is just you yourself, with a few other idiots? Oh, well, there it is.
As I have blogged previously, I have never seen any of these sorts of “antifascist” and/or Jewish Zionist trolls offer any policies or ideas about how to improve society (except by advocating the “removal” of those they deem “Nazi”, “fascist”, “racist” etc). It’s all negative and all, at root, based around their own hate (they, unwittingly ironically, always claim to oppose “hate”, of course…). cf. “Hope Against Hate” etc.
I have to admit that I am rather curious as to what happened to the £12,000 that Roanna, Mike Stuchbery (the pro-“antifa” tweeter, would-be “journalist”, would-be “historian” and general grifter), and a Pakistani solicitor extracted, via GoFundMe, from 700 well-meaning (?) mugs, on the premise that Stuchbery was going to sue “Tommy Robinson” (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon). Never happened. As far as I know, the only action taken was a very poorly-drafted letter from the Pakistani, which may or may not have been delivered to “Robinson”.
Apparently, one of the minor candidates for London Mayor has been associating with some alleged fraudsters: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/should-someone-who-wants-london-24047689. Strangely enough, though, I saw nothing in the msm about the fairly recent video put out by “Conservative” candidate Shaun Bailey, which featured a woman best described as a “Balkan fraud”, and who was convicted of both fraud and forgery at Southwark Crown Court in 2013. Come to that, Bailey himself was, arguably, lucky not to face more than a police investigation when his non-profit quasi-charity had to be wound up some years ago. Oddly enough, all the monies had disappeared, and large amounts had apparently been spent on hotels and restaurants for…Shaun Bailey.
Fortunately for West Indian-origined Bailey, the voters in today’s election will have voted by the time I post this; in any case, Bailey has little chance of beating Sadiq Khan in the contest.
I wonder why the Conservative Party picked Bailey? I remember seeing him on one of the Andrew Neil politics shows on the BBC, years ago. Unimpressive. A West Indian with a big mouth and not much of interest to say. I suppose that, London now being a mainly non-white city, the Con Party decided that it needed a non-white candidate. Well, that fell flat (it seems).
The likely date of early release is now some day uncertain next week. “They” are trying to get their full pound of flesh, it seems.
Latest news about persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz is that, according to usually-reliable sources, her early release on electronic tag has been further delayed by wrangling over the terms of her release; in other words, it may be that the Jew-Zionist lobby, operating as always behind the scenes, is trying to have her gagged, i.e. there may be conditions around use of or posting on the Internet. Such conditions, if imposed, might last until the end of the 18 weeks starting on 31 March 2021, the day of her sentencing; if so, she may be unable to post until early August 2021.
Books sent should be *new, *paperback and preferably (though not necessarily) sent via online vendors [important update: Bronzefield Prison now does not accept Amazon deliveries but will accept books from elsewhere]
Looks as though the technology first publicly seen in the 1965 film, Thunderball, has finally come of age and is finally of use in practical operations:
Worth watching (pity about the horrible ending soundtrack, though).
The few, in (eg) Hartlepool, who are still Labour loyalists, point at achievements of the past, such as those of the Attlee government of 1945 (NHS, mainly…), but that is like saying that Lloyd George brought in the Old Age Pension, so vote Liberal, or LibDems in today’s terms. Absurd. Doesn’t work…
It is ridiculous for people in Hartlepool to vote “Conservative”, but it is equally silly to vote “Labour”, which supports mass immigration, and in that and other respects is now almost identical in real policy terms to the equally-misnamed “Conservatives”, and now led by a man who is married to a Jewish woman lawyer, whose children are being brought up as Jewish, and who is a puppet of the Jewish Zionist lobby.
Does Keir Starmer have anything to say to the people of Hartlepool? No. Neither, of course, does the part-Jew chancer and political bad joke, Boris Johnson. However, the voters of Hartlepool have no other realistic choice. The electoral system is itself a fraudulent bad joke. The result is that those voters want a change, but cannot get a change except to make a gesture at least, by, binning Labour, which has won Hartlepool since 1974, when the present constituency was created.
The opinion polls show the Conservative Party well ahead of Labour in the Hartlepool race. The result may be tighter than some expect, but it seems likely that Labour will lose to the Conservative Party.
It is unlikely that Reform UK (effectively Brexit Party without the name, the support, or even the leader— traitorous Farage has decamped for the money) will get many votes. Thus the Conservative Party vote will be little impacted.
As for Labour, I predict a poor showing. There are many in Hartlepool, no doubt, who will not vote Conservative under any circumstances. Many former Labour voters, as in the 2019 General Election, will probably vote with their feet, and stay at home to watch the televised sport and pseudo-“celebrity” nonsense so beloved of the contemporary British masses. If so, the Labour Party is toast at Hartlepool.
A Conservative Party “victory by default” at Hartlepool is more than likely, and the same effect will be seen, in the near future, across much of England, in the absence of a real social-national party.
I suppose that some people will accuse me of being “anti-vaccination” or an “anti-vaxxer”, which is not (necessarily) the case either in general or in respect of the vaccine(s) which have been developed in respect of the “panicdemic”. I myself was, as a child, vaccinated against various diseases; I have also been vaccinated a few times since then, in respect of tropical diseases, prior to visits to places in Africa and elsewhere.
However, while historically, vaccines are said to have saved millions from terrible conditions, and even lingering or other death, the matter might not be as clear-cut as many, including I myself, have always thought:
I have seen similar graphs for half a dozen deadly diseases, all of which seem to show that the diseases in question were already very fast-declining in incidence before the vaccine in question was introduced.
There is little doubt that the improvements in public health in the 19th and 20th centuries were largely a result of improved water supply, sanitation, air quality, food quality and quantity, rather than a consequence of vaccination, though that too may have contributed in a minor way.
The girl in the picture above may be simply an unfortunate victim, a statistical anomaly. I do not know (and I concede that I cannot vouch for the veracity or accuracy of the facts asserted with that picture). It may be that people will say that her case is one in a million, or one in a hundred thousand etc. Cold comfort for the girl herself, to be regarded as simply a sad casualty of the “war against Covid-19”, or as an unfortunate guinea-pig.
Had someone such the notorious Dr. Mengele conducted a test with such a result, people would be less charitable (ironically, the girl in the picture seems herself to be Jewish). True, the girl in the picture was presumably a volunteer, but can a girl of 12 really give informed consent to be such an experimental subject?
Another graph, showing the experimental use and effect of the same vaccine given to that girl:
I do not want to be too “ideological” about this, and I concede that I am not medically-qualified. However, even the NHS doctors and nurses often so zealous about the “anti-Covid” vaccines are not, usually, specialists in vaccination, virology, epidemiology etc.
I myself have not been vaccinated against Covid-19. My choice and my risk. Were it to become a condition of using international public transport, or UK pubs, then too bad. No more travelling or pubbing for me. The pleasures of both are, in my view, over-rated anyway.
My provisional view is that the vaccination(s) are being used as a painless way for the UK government (and others?) to wind down the panicky measures introduced over a year ago. They will be able to say “thanks to vaccination, we can all return to normal”, rather than “we got it wrong”…
I blogged briefly about this yesterday: the fact of “postcode selection” in State-school intake, not only in the UK but in Paris, Moscow etc.
I disagree with tweeter “@BeesterGee”. If you want reasonably stable communities, you have to create stability, via security. You cannot create a feeling of security when people fear that they may have to move within 5 years, and moreover move if others say that they must move.
Yes. It is in a sense amazing that people cannot see that two superficially-similar schools in two very different neighbourhoods will attract very different intakes. Not only in the UK, but anywhere.
In Paris, it would be idle to suggest that the lycees around the 15th and 16th arrondisements, eg those near to the Bir-Hakeim metro, are equivalent to those in poor suburbs many miles away. Likewise in Moscow. Even under Stalin, the “Kremlin Kids” and lesser-known, but still privileged, jeunesse-dorees went to schools far better than those far away from the central areas of the city. Selection by post-code, if you like.
It is easier to re-engineer society on paper than it is to do it on the ground. I recall some people known to a friend of mine in the 1980s, who were extremely wealthy by some means or other (I think inheritance), and who were “socialists” of some sort. Labour Party members, I think. They loved the fact that they lived in some ghastly part of Southwark (South London) and so, apparently, were able to tell people that; in fact their home was a beautiful house in a similar street —I went there once— but untouched (unlike most of the area) by WW2 Luftwaffe bombing or (far more destructive) postwar redevelopment.
The family in question had three young children, and to that end employed three nannies, who lived in the large basement of the house, which I think had 4 floors. At weekends, the children were left in the care of the nannies while the parents flew to Scotland for house parties or even just for lunch. On paper? Presumably, “socialists and Labour Party members”, who “lived in South London”, “with their three children”.
In the pre-WW2 period, hypocrisy was thought more common in the Conservative Party, but Labour soon caught up. Now, I should say that there is not much to choose.
I prefer outright Conservatives, or real socialist ideologues, usually, to the sort of self-deluding hypocrites often seen around today.
Exactly right. For British people though, not unwanted interlopers, whether they be economic migrants, “refugees”, or migrant-invaders of whatever other stripe.
When “democracy”, in the sense that we know it in Western and Central Europe, fails to do the job, the people start to look elsewhere. It is already happening all over Europe, even if so far only in the negative sense, i.e. apathy at elections.
“Communism“? Socialism, surely? I thought that Hitchens was once a Marxist (Trotskyist)?
“From the sublime to the ridiculous”, 1960s Prime Minister Harold Wilson almost invariably smoked a pipe in public to show that he was one of “the people”, whereas in fact he preferred cigars (Havanas), not a very “proletarian” choice (even in Cuba).
Unwilling to register with the Independent, I cannot read that article, but the conclusion seems (based on the quoted remark) to be right. Starmer, the Jewish Lobby puppet, is (as I predicted from the start) hopeless and as dull as ditchwater, but he is no more “the problem” for Labour than was the rather different Corbyn.
Labour’s problem is that there is no longer a “proletariat” or (in the old sense) a “working class”, there is no more a bloc “Labour vote”, there are no more, or very few, “working class communities”, as such, no nationalized industries of any size, and no great loyalty to Labour, even in its traditional North and North-East heartlands.
The Labour Party itself has changed out of all recognition since its highest point of popularity in 1945. From being a largely socialist party, it moved to social-democracy and then, arguably, in the 1990s under Blair, ditched even that. It became really just a label (or as the egregious waste of space, freeloader, and careerist, Jess Phillips MP, put it, “just a ****ing rose“). Rather like those Latin American countries where the almost-identical parties distinguish themselves by colour: the Blancos v. the Colorados. Like football teams, or the racing silks in the Hippodrome at Byzantium.
It is hard to see now for what the Labour Party stands. Starmer seems to be saying that he supports almost all of what Boris-Idiot’s maladministration does, but that “Boris” should do it better!
In fact I saw a satirical comment to the effect that, were the “Conservative” misgovernment to reintroduce workhouses, Labour under Starmer would agree, but cavil that that should be done more efficiently and slightly more humanely! A joke? Yes, sort-of…but then look at the attack on the unemployed, disabled etc over the past 15-20 years. Which party really started that? Labour…Yes, the “Conservative” Jew-lobby regime of David Cameron-Levita made it worse, but all that nonsense started under Gordon Brown and his lunatic misgovernment, via Alastair Darling, Stephen Timms etc. They, not the Conservatives, brought in the crazily dysfunctional —and also dishonest— ATOS carpetbaggers, for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Work_Capability_Assessment#History.
As I have often said, Labour is now basically the party of the blacks and browns and/or public service workers, which is why Labour eulogizes the NHS constantly (though the NHS is a very hit-and-miss service overall).
Really, one has to ask (again), “what (and who) is Labour for?”
I imagine that the victor in the upcoming local elections will be apathy, with few people turning out to vote.
This is the moment when a social-national party might make hay. If a social-national party actually existed. A real one, I mean, not the joke ones presently around.
Well, this week I did no better than John Rentoul; we both scored only 4/10 (though if I were to follow Rentoul’s usual practice, I could award myself an extra half-point for knowing that Father Ted was set on an Irish island, though I did not know its name). I had no idea as to questions 1, 2, 7, 8, and 10.
Shchi [щи], or Russian cabbage soup, is one of those things that can be either very pleasant or not very pleasant, other examples being borshch [борщ](beetroot soup), kvass [квас](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kvass) etc.
I suppose it is true of some British foods too. In the end, it is, of course, a question of taste. De gustibus non est disputandum. I like oysters; many do not. I like caviar (when afforded); many do not. I like (boiled and then fried) buckwheat kasha (probably because I ate it daily at one time, long ago); many do not, and think such a choice very odd indeed.
I have no particular animus against Boris-Idiot’s latest “ho” (to use the amusing American black term), but it is scandalous if (and it seems that) the woman has any but purely peripheral and personal influence on national affairs. After all, with the best will in the world, she got to her present position of influence on her back, to put it perhaps slightly crudely and…well, let’s leave that there! Suffice to say that she has never been elected, or even appointed, to any position of significance (and, no, I do not regard her unsuccessful period pumping out propaganda for Conservative Party HQ as that).
The woman likes animals, we are told. I approve heartily of that; and if (as it seems from what I have seen in photos) she has no taste, or employs an expensive interior decorator who has no taste, well…that is the way of the world. If her refurbishment at Downing Street is more “nouveau” than simply new, well…again…these things happen.
I should not like to tar Carrie Symonds with the brush justly censuring Boris-Idiot, but that immunity disappears if, as often claimed, she is interfering with, or even deciding, policy.
The post-2008 Greek experience is instructive. The social-national party, Golden Dawn, was the only party with integrity opposed to the EU enforcement of usury-dictatorship “austerity”. However, the System made sure that the faux-“socialist” “antifascist” party, Syriza, seemed more “credible”.
The result was that Syriza took over the Greek government, then signed up to yet more “austerity”. The people, many of whom died of starvation, while other rummaged through bins trying to find food, had been well and truly fooled. Golden Dawn was then repressed.
Usually-reliable sources report that, though Alison Chabloz was scheduled to be released from Bronzefield Prison today, and (how absurd, though) on electronic tag, bureaucratic delays to do with probation have pushed back the likely day of release to next Tuesday or Wednesday. Another example of how everything is sliding and becoming less efficient in the UK.
Books sent should be *new, *paperback and preferably (though not necessarily) sent via online vendors [important update: Bronzefield Prison now does not accept Amazon deliveries but will accept books from elsewhere]
Looking on the brighter side, even a release next week will mean that Alison will have been imprisoned for only 5 weeks out of the headline 18 to which she was sentenced (in reality, about 7-8 weeks).
If Alison had not been scheduled for early release, she would be released anyway about halfway through May, so about 3 weeks from today.
Looking at the wider picture, Alison’s appeal against both conviction and sentence is set down for 2 days, on 3-4 June 2021, and is likely to be heard at Southwark Crown Court (it will be a complete rehearing of the matter).
Should Alison’s present appeal fail in whole or in part, the Crown Court will be able to substitute a greater or lesser sentence, up to a maximum of 6 months’ imprisonment. However, the time Alison has spent incarcerated will be taken off any time actually to be served, so if she were to receive the maximum 6 months (about 26 weeks), she would do half of that (3 months or about 13 weeks) but also minus the ~5 weeks served from day of sentence to (likely) day of release (next week), and also minus other days in custody, such as the 4 days served before her successful appeal of 2020. She would therefore only serve an extra ~7 weeks at maximum.
It may be, though, that the Crown Court would not, or not much, interfere with the sentence duration passed by the lower court if the appeal fails, in which case Alison would only serve a few days extra, if that.
More optimistically, should Alison’s present appeal succeed, then she would be credited with the time she has now spent in prison (in 2020 and 2021) and in other custody, and also the time which she will have spent on electronic tag (at half a day for every day spent on tag). That is relevant because Alison now faces yet another trial in the magistrates’ court, set down for 1 day, on 1 September 2021.
Were Alison to be convicted on 1 September 2021, and were she then to be sentenced to imprisonment, not only would she serve only half of any such sentence, but would have about 6-7 weeks more taken off that reduced sentence. So a 6 month sentence would mean, in reality, about 5-6 weeks in prison, and a sentence of 3 months would mean no time at all in prison.
A statement from Patriotic Alternative has been released:
“Last Wednesday (21.04.2021) Laura Towler’s husband Sam was arrested and taken into police custody. The police then let themselves into Laura and Sam’s home, burst into her bedroom without knocking whilst she was still undressed, and then demanded to search the property.
The officer in charge did not arrest Laura, and instead presented her with a warrant, and despite the warrant not mentioning Laura at all, the police took all of her devices – including her phone and laptop.
What’s more, many of the police officers conducting the search refused to hand over the badge numbers or their real names.
On Friday evening (30.04.2021) we were planning to do our regular Patriotic Alternative monthly update. However instead, we are now planning a special stream about this arrest where Mark Collett and Laura Towler will discuss the police’s behaviour and relay advice given to them from legal professionals on the legality of the police action.
Last week Mark Collett’s YouTube channel was terminated – despite the fact that it was completely clean and didn’t have a single active copyright or community guidelines strike. As such, the livestream will not be found on YouTube, but instead it will appear on DLive and Odysee:
The stream will begin at 7pm UK time (2pm EST) and last around 2 hours.
All donations made during the stream will be given to Sam and Laura to help them cover the cost of replacing the items the police seized. The stream will also allow Patriotic Alternative supporters to ask Sam and Laura questions about the police raid.
Needless to say, neither Laura or Mark are deterred by this abuse of police power. Put simply; this is a desperate attempt by the police to silence those who speak out on behalf of the indigenous people of these islands and further restrict our freedom of speech.
We can assure you; we will not be silenced!“
Ha ha! The unpleasant Jew-Zionist know-all does not know even the most basic history, yet pontificates on world affairs! Are prescription drugs affecting him again? That was one of his excuses when he was found guilty on several charges by a Solicitors’ Disciplinary Panel a couple of years ago. Search via the search panel on the blog for full details. I expect, though, that he is just displaying ignorance.
For once, I do agree with the egregious Lewis, on the above matter. There again, who could disagree? A long-running and appalling miscarriage of justice affecting people who are all but powerless, and who are often very good citizens as well.
When I spent a number of months in Turkey in 2001 (I drove from the UK), I found that the best beer there (to my taste) was called Tekel beer, made by a State-owned brewery. Sadly, no longer. Privatized, apparently, and changed out of all recognition.
I think that Hitchens was referring to the film; he would obviously assume that the background “street noise” was added more recently…
Don’t expect pseudo-national types such as Peter Whittle to say anything against the Jew-Zionist element and its influence.
Quite likely, but then there is the question of quantity. At present, Russia has a total of 10,000-12,000 tanks (but many are in storage, inactive); the USA has 6,000-8,000 (but not all operational, and mostly not in Europe). The UK has 100-200 operational tanks now.
In any case, most General Staff modelling (on both/all sides) indicates that a limited but major and conventional war between NATO and Russia would be quite likely to go nuclear. If that were to happen, all bets are off. The USA is far more powerful, but that is almost irrelevant in a scenario where all major US cities would be destroyed (as would major Russian cities). My money would be on Russia to survive or rebuild better than the disunited USA. As for the UK, “Goodnight Vienna”…
As matters stand (at 1300 hrs, 28 April 2021), the situation in respect of her hearing today at Westminster Mags is this, according to usually-reliable sources: the charges under the Public Order Act 1986 have been dropped, so presumably the stupid, ignorant, or negligent police and/or CPS (it’s basically a CPS responsibility, though), who failed to request the necessary assent of the Attorney-General, have now failed to secure such assent. Pretty embarrassing, and yet another sign of how standards are sliding in the UK.
Whatever may be said about the above, the fact is that this is a blow for the malicious Jew-Zionists in and around the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” cabal. Not so long ago, they were all (all half-dozen of them) tweeting and laughing at how (as they imagined, in their nasty-minded ignorance) Alison Chabloz might expect “years” in prison.
Well, now that different charges have been preferred against Alison Chabloz (charges under the Communications Act 2003, and similar to the ones on which she was recently convicted, the subject of an appeal now), the maximum sentence available to the court on conviction would be 6 months (but in reality, after the usual reduction, 3 months actually incarcerated).
It seems that it is ordered that Alison, who is still at Bronzefield Prison near Heathrow, should be produced at court, which is unlikely to be possible before 1600 hours.
More relaxing music
I should think that many people in the UK are becoming thoroughly sick of the behaviour, and the disproportionate influence, of “a certain element”…
Typical Communist-style thinking. What to do about the ludicrously-misnamed “SAGE” “experts”? I am not allowed, in our supposedly “free” country, to say what I really think, except (as I suggested last year) that “SAGE” should be renamed “DUMB” (Department Under Matt and Boris)…
Just saw a few photos of the new (or should that be “nouveau”?) refurbishment of the official quarters of the person currently posing as Prime Minister. I fear that the taste of the “ho” is not very good…
All the same, my feeling is that this is a distraction from the crazed policies pursued by “Boris”, not least the fact that, because he is incapable of running the country, he delegates the most important decisions (not implementation, but actual decisions) to others no more capable: in the past year or so to Dominic Cummings and, worse, the ludicrous “SAGE” crowd. Most of the damage done, eg by the “lockdown” shutdown, is disguised; but it’s there all right.
Alison Chabloz— late update
Usually-reliable sources report that Alison Chabloz was produced, meaning in person, at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, very late in the afternoon today. She pleaded Not Guilty to the latest charge.
As noted earlier today in this blog, the Crown Prosecution Service, having negligently or ignorantly failed to seek the approval of the Attorney-General for the more serious charge (under Public Order Act 1986), and now presumably having failed to get such approval, have charged Alison with an offence under the Communications Act 2003, an offence which is summary only (to be heard only in the magistrates’ court, and carrying a maximum sentence of 6 months’ imprisonment).
Apparently, the matter is now being handled by a Ms. Jessica Hart of the CPS Counter-Terrorism Division! One must remind oneself that Alison Chabloz is accused only of having posted online a song! Sometimes this country seems terminally screwed!
Alison having entered a Not Guilty plea, the matter is now set down for trial on 1 September 2021, with a time estimate of 1 day.
I have no information as to bail, and in view of the fact that Alison was brought from prison custody, and later returned to prison custody, it may be that the Court decided not to impose bail conditions, or that to do so would have been beyond its powers.
The other good news for and about Alison Chabloz is that she is going to be released early from her current notional 18 weeks’ imprisonment, imposed only 28 days ago. She will be freed tomorrow morning, 29 April 2021.
