Saturday quiz

Well, I have once again beaten political journalist John Rentoul. This week, he scored 6/10, but I trumped that with 7/10. I did not know the answers to questions 4 and 6, and I hit the post on question 5 (I chose a neighbouring county), so disallowed that too; that left me with 7.

…and the Jewish hypocrites (in Israel, in the USA, in the UK etc) have the gall to whine about what happened here and there in the Second World War…

…and while we are on the subject of hypocrisy…

Imagine…Britain has a Minister of State, no less, whose degree was in “Hospitality Management”…Increasingly, I feel that there is just nothing left of Britain’s institutions but facades behind which are crumbling and rat-infested ruins.

How is that different from the alleged shootings of Jews by German forces and, more often, Baltic, Ukrainian and other volunteers and auxiliaries, in Eastern Europe during 1939-42?

…imagine the scream the Jew-Zionist lobby would raise if people in the UK engaged in family recreational activities anywhere near the Jews’ endless “holocaust” “remembrance” photo-opportunities, even in England where no such massacres ever took place, not in the past 700+ years anyway.

Pretty much cuts the ground from under the Jew-Zionist “holocaust” exceptionalists…

Germany was devastated during the 1941-1945 period of history; it does not want that to happen, and even worse, a second time. (True, Estonia suffered greatly as well…).

Who pays for propaganda-journalism of that type? As for the ludicrous conclusion that “the UK has no intention of letting Ukraine fall“, it will take more than a few tweets by Liz Truss, a few remarks by Boris-idiot, and a few planes filled with weapons, to ensure that. How many such flights were sent to the equally-useless and corrupt Afghan government in Kabul?

I wonder whether Biden might accept any Russian offer to decide the matter by a referendum of the people of Eastern Ukraine? I suppose not, because 90% would want to separate from Ukraine and, in some way, cohere with Russia.

Putin will, in these last days, still try to “win without war”, in the words of Sun-Tzu, but as every day passes, more arms and ammo are flown into Ukraine by the USA, UK and others. That obviously makes a swift invasion, at least into Eastern Ukraine, more likely.

Almost all correct from Rory Stewart, but is he correct in saying that Britain is still “a great country”? I think not. Not now. It could be, though, that under the right ideology and the right leadership, Britain could rise again, if it changed some demographics and some habits.

Incidentally, I blogged about Stewart a few years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/03/will-rory-stewart-mp-be-prime-minister/.

Stewart, like so many in UK politics, talks a good game, indeed better than most, but adds up to less than the sum of his many parts. Read my assessment, which I have updated with add-ons since it was written in 2019: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/03/will-rory-stewart-mp-be-prime-minister/.

Of course, Stewart is no longer an MP, and so could not, as things stand, be a Conservative Party leadership candidate.

I would rather trust Putin and Russia any day rather than those Qatari bastards.

Look at Twitter. Every well-connected American msm Jew is anti-Putin, anti-Russia: David Frum, Ben Shapiro etc.

Coudenhove-Kalergi propaganda

A reader of the blog sent me an article from a Scottish newspaper.

https://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/19850946.neil-mackays-big-read-mass-migration-coming-future-scotland-asian-says-leading-migration-expert-dr-parag-khanna/

Actually frightening, not just because the author explicitly commends what he calls the “brownification” of Europe, but also because he thinks that the population of the world is not really very high, whereas the truth is that the natural world is now breaking under the strain of numbers, most of which hordes are non-white.

When was it that the journalistic trade in London became almost entirely Jewish? I suppose sometime in the 1980s or 1990s. Certainly, looking at what was once “Fleet Street”, that trade has become so and, today, almost every newspaper scribbler, at least in the national Press, seems to be Jewish, or at least partly so.

I wonder what percentage of Americans want war with Russia over Ukraine or Eastern Ukraine? Whatever the answer to that, I imagine that the figure drops towards zero if those polled are told that war with Russia means a nuclear attack near to their own homes.

Quite (but “holocaust” should be written thus…).

[Hermitage (formerly, Winter Palace), St. Petersburg, Russia]

On this day a year ago

In that year-ago blog post, I saw a few things that now make me laugh all over again, like the very true assertion, contained in a tweet from one of the huge number of Twitter accounts now closed down by the online censors: “Leftism is when you think the best way to stick it to your boss is to ensure he has an unending supply of cheap imported labor..”

Quite. In a nutshell. That Twitter account was American, but it applies just as well here in the UK. Those (eg the “refugees welcome” dimwits) who think that you can have unlimited or almost unlimited mass immigration, yet still have a high-income, high-skilled economy (and also a properly-funded Welfare State), are just completely wrongheaded.

I myself never use “Right”, Left” terminology in any sense which confers legitimacy upon it.

The only extra point to add (and only necessary because there is so much deliberate misinformation around, especially on Twitter) is that many of the migrant-invaders entering the UK will never enter the UK workforce as such, because they not only have no usable skills, meaning skills useful in an advanced economy, but also either speak no English at all, or only at the most basic level (and in many cases never will).

In other words, mass immigration creates a huge drag on the society and economy; you could even call it a millstone around our collective neck.

Of course, the self-describing “Left” have pretty much given up any struggle to create a better society. They have no ideology (beyond vague “anti-racism”, “anti-sexism” etc) which might underpin such a struggle. Socialism in the old sense more or less died in and after 1989, the last significant year of the 1956-1989 ~33-year cycle. What is left is effectively worthless, a farrago of mixed-up nonsense, not only ideologically vague, but practically confused.

The above example about mass immigration is just one example of the confusion. Another is about free speech online. The virtue-signallers of the self-describing “Left” almost all celebrate the removal of social-national Twitter accounts such as mine (rubbed out in 2018 after a conspiracy by a pack of Zionist Jews); the same virtue-signallers celebrate equally the removal of Twitter accounts belonging to so-called “alt-Right” figures such as Katie Hopkins, and those of dissidents such as David Icke.

The “online fora” (Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, ebay etc) are of course all run and actually owned by hugely wealthy companies (and individuals, mostly Jews), but the self-describing “Left” has nothing to say about all that, still less any plan to change the structure; for them, all that matters is that “fascists” (those with whom they disagree) are removed from having any online “platform” (where they might enjoy freedom of expression).

They just do not see that what has happened is that they, and those like them, are now contained in a big gilded cage, where they can squawk endlessly about “racism”, “sexism” etc while having not the slightest real impact on the world.

The same kind of dissonance as over immigration is seen in the attitude of the same people about Palestine, Israel, and the Jewish situation in the world. They (most of them) oppose Israel as a state, and go halfway toward such ideas as “BDS” (economic boycotts of Israel, and avoidance of Israeli products etc), but the majority of them are still brainwashed by the whole “holocaust” farrago, and almost all of them no doubt think that the disastrous and destructive war against the German Reich was A Very Good Thing. Few would see a problem in the fact that exploitative Jewish control of economies, legal systems, political systems permeates what might be called “the Western world”, our world.

Even when they see fraudulent Jewish exploiters such as Philip Green, Robert Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein and others, those self-describing “Left” people see only finance-capitalists…

As Goethe put it in Faust, and from the mouth of Mephistopheles, “the good folk do not see the Devil, even when he sits on their shoulder.” The “Leftists” see only the part of the narrative that fits in with their pre-1989 ideology.

You saw all of the above in the UK Labour Party’s Corbyn and McDonnell double-act: Corbyn with his skeletal “ideology” composed of elements taken, half-baked, from 20thC history, such as the so-called “Battle of Cable Street”, selected and half-understood bits from the Spanish Civil War (“!No Pasaran” etc), anti-Israel support for Palestine, yet at the same time his lip-service to the “holocaust” farrago, and of course “anti-fascism”. As clunky as a Trabant.

Both “sides” of the Labour Party offer nothing to the British people (though neither does this shambolic “Conservative” government, of course).

Unusual travelogue

That YouTube account, though slightly irritating at times, is usually quite interesting. The subtitles are rubbish, but you don’t need to know Russian: mostly English commentary.

As for BAM (Baikal-Amur-Mainline), it was once said, by dissidents, that every Soviet generation had its large and, they claimed, not very useful, engineering project: inter alia, the White Sea Canal, the Turk-Sib railway, the Virgin Lands scheme, and BAM. True, but some of those are at least not useless, and some are also very impressive.

“Thought for the day”

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools
:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

[Kipling, If]

Once again, we see the impact one individual can have on a large-scale problem. The newspaper report is well worth reading.

Both major System parties are basically, and putting it politely, two faces of the same coin.

Only social nationalism has even a chance of saving anything worthwhile in Britain, but there is no social-national party worthy of the name, let alone any social-national movement.

If the State, controlled secretly by inner ruling circles and cabals, turns against the people, then the people have the inherent right to fight back, using whatever methods are expedient.

For “the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].

A few more thoughts about Ukraine

Any Russian incursion into Eastern Ukraine would have been bloodless, but will now not be, partly because the corrupt Kiev regime will probably try to resist, despite the vast bulk of the Eastern Ukraine population favouring Russia.

The arms and money (and “advisers”) from the UK and —mainly— USA being sent to Ukraine contain the seeds of a wider conflict, because any large-scale resistance by the Kiev government will probably result in retaliation against it by Russian forces. That might include massive attack on Kiev itself. Whether that will result in American direct involvement remains to be seen, though I doubt that the USA has the will to fight Russia directly, on the ground.

Eastern Ukraine was part of the Russo-Slavonic polity for over a thousand years. It was under Muscovite control for hundreds of years. The present corrupt, and basically Jew-dominated, Ukraine, has only been around for 29-30 years as a (failed) state. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Ukraine.

Without interference from outside, Eastern Ukraine would fall under Russian control as willingly as Austria joined with the German Reich in 1938.

As for the USA, does it have the will to put its own safety on the line for the Kiev regime? I doubt it. Biden’s recent statement was a nod and wink to Russia that this will not cause a superpower conflict (if Russia still counts as a superpower…perhaps not, but near enough!).

Yes, the USA probably does have many times the military-destructive power of Russia, but the fact is that Russia could still annihilate most if not all American cities if it so chose, albeit at a like cost. You can only wipe out a city once, no matter how many and how powerful are your nuclear weapons.

As for political leadership, Biden seems to have some form of dementia. If he had to resign, the government of the USA would be, at least nominally, in the hands of part-black, part-Indian, part (small part) Irish, Kamala Harris, but one can assume that the “deep state”, i.e. the secret cabals and ruling circles, would continue to pull the strings. NWO, if you like, and “ZOG”.

Russia looks like it is about to make a big move on the geopolitical chessboard.

Yes, the “panicdemic” has only partly succeeded in corralling the public worldwide, and only partly in the UK as well. Suddenly, “Covid” “restrictions” are going to be stood down, only weeks after the latest scam propaganda over “Omicron”, and how hundreds of thousands would be filling NHS hospitals. All lies.

However, the repressive laws will mostly still be there, ready to be used and indeed repurposed, any time that the “secret state” decides.

Yes, Gates was investing in vaccines over a year before the “panicdemic” started (or was started)…

Jew found guilty of harassment-related death is hiding in Israel

https://www.timesofisrael.com/france-seeks-extradition-of-french-israeli-hacker-for-death-following-phone-hoax/.

One notices that, on UK Twitter, many of the fanatical Jew-Zionists, who have been harassing non-Jews (and even some anti-Zionist Jews) for years, either have pseudonymous “sock accounts”, or hide full-time behind pseudonyms. Some have been exposed, some not (as yet). Time to go en ratissage, to see if others can be uncovered.

Not mentioned in that Times of Israel report is the fact that the fugitive Jew (how many of them are there?) also targeted brave and now-deceased “revisionist” historian (surely most good historians are revisionist?), Robert Faurisson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Faurisson], in poor health at the time. Well, you would not expect decent behaviour from “them”, would you? In that respect, “they” never disappoint.

Tweeter “@MaierViv” is worth following, for those who still have a Twitter account. The Jew-Zionists have been trying for years to have her expelled, so far without having succeeded.

Rachel Reeves, MP, Shadow Cabinet minister under Keir Starmer, and (of course) a member of Labour Friends of Israel (like the rest of the Shadow Cabinet). I have as yet been unable to discover whether she is part-Jewish or not; my instinct is that she is, but I have as yet no direct evidence of the fact, if it is a fact.

The (((Lobby)))…

There is a ~33-year cycle, as I have blogged on previous occasions: 1923, 1956, 1989, 2022.

The New World Order was proclaimed openly by President Bush snr. in early 1990. Socialism collapsed worldwide from the 1989 pivot-year, symbolized of course by the literal collapse of the Berlin Wall. South Africa was destroyed as a white European country in Africa, destroyed from within. The UK Labour Party removed “Clause Four” (nationalization etc) from its Constitution in the early 1990s. The USA started its campaign of attacking Iraq, in order to remove the anti-Israel states in general; since then, we have seen Iraq, Syria, Libya and Lebanon effectively neutralized, and Egypt controlled from a distance by bribery and infiltration. A few examples…

The post-1989 effect ripples on, as do the effects from 1956 etc. A new impetus is now brought in, which can be summarized as putting into effect, as far as possible, the “White Genocide” implicit in the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, meaning the destruction of white Europe, and its replacement by a mixed race population, ruled over and/or influenced by (brainwashed by) Jews and part-Jews. That, and the microchipping of the population of the Earth, starting with the advanced countries.

That silly woman, “@furnessgirl”, used to attack me on Twitter before the Jew-Zionist lobby had me expelled. Typical of much of the self-describing “Left” (a meaningless descriptor) on Twitter. Seems to be, like so many of them, fairly comfortably-off, and lives far away from the multikulti urban hellholes which she thinks should be “enriched” by more mass immigration; and so on.

What a surprise— not only a Remain whiner but, as we see so many times, yet another one totally brainwashed by the “panicdemic” propaganda.

As for Henry Williamson, the author of Tarka the Otter, he was a good man, insofar as anyone is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Williamson.

[Tarka the Otter; first edition woodcut]

How typical of the “@furnessgirl” type to dismiss a man such as Henry Williamson with the dismissive or “cancelling” (?) “…a fascist“. Someone who loved animals and wanted to protect them; someone who wanted to avoid a second disastrous 20thC war in Europe (he fought in the first one); someone who saw the good National Socialism had brought to Germany.

As I said, a silly woman, who thinks that she is very clever.

In fairness to her, though, I do agree with her tweet below:

One of the things that infuriate me is that you can be almost certain that, if a British schoolteacher or trainee schoolteacher appears on a TV quiz show, he/she/it will be frighteningly ignorant.

It is hardly surprising that children in the UK so often come out of up to 13 years of full-time primary and secondary education almost devoid of any real knowledge at all, when those who have taught them are themselves often unbelievably ignorant.

I think that a very great deal of the huge amount of money (£99 Billion p.a. at present, 4.5% of national income) which the UK state spends on “education” (as it fondly supposes), is just wasted. https://ifs.org.uk/publications/15858.

In the late 1930s, Britain and France started to offer worthless guarantees to states in Central and Eastern Europe. When Poland called in the chit, in September 1939, and despite the fact that both Britain and France did declare war on the German Reich because of the invasion of Poland by the German Reich, the chit or guarantee was worth nothing.

Poland was still invaded (indeed also invaded from the East, by Soviet forces). No French or British forces fought (or ever could have fought) in or for Poland. As for the Soviet Union, Britain and France did even less to stop its 1939 invasion of Poland; even the words were muted.

Now we see the UK, which has virtually no useful armed forces anyway, alternately threatening Russia (over Ukraine, which was part of the Muscovite state for well over a thousand years, and has had less than 30 recent years of chaotic and corrupt “independence”), and then back-pedalling. The less Liz Truss says, the less foolish she will seem.

When push comes to shove, what then? The USA has been pumping weapons and money into the Kiev regime’s reserves. Let’s say that Russia annexes Eastern Ukraine, where the population are heavily pro-Russian. The shambolic army and militias of the Kiev regime will be defeated. Will the USA declare then war on Russia? I very much doubt that. Obviously, the same applies to the UK. That is not even a question.

In the end, Russia will prevail here. Its leaders may want to win without war, as per Sun Tzu: “to win without war is the supreme excellence“: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Art_of_War; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Tzu.

Having said that, even if the Russian leaders would prefer to achieve victory without having to fight, there is no doubt that they will fight if they have to. That applies particularly knowing, as they do, that the opposing forces are unable to resist for long, and that the USA will not want to get involved directly.

Russia would prefer to have a referendum in Eastern Ukraine (only) on whether that region should reintegrate with Russia. Such a referendum would result in a —genuinely— 95%+ vote in favour. Somewhat similar to what happened in Crimea.

The Kiev government would never accept such a referendum. It stands by its view on “territorial integrity”, but that integrity rests on a mere 29-30 years of “independence”, out of about 1,100 years. In Soviet times the Ukraine-Russia border was really just lines on a map, almost meaningless.

So there we have it. The tendentious Defence Correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, Con Coughlin (very pro-Israel etc)[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Con_Coughlin] scribbles that “this is only the start, if we appease Putin now“. So…what does Coughlin want Britain to do? Fire our —few— nuclear missiles on Russia?

Not very clever as a strategy, when dozens (at least) of Russian missiles would then devastate the small UK (which is only a 72nd of the area of Russia). Fight for Ukraine in Ukraine? Again, unintelligent, when the Russian armies massed near Ukraine are already twice the size of the whole British Army.

Anyway, why? Why should British soldiers fight for the Kiev regime? It is a corrupt —and very Israeli-dominated— cabal, which has little legitimacy.

If the UK helps Russia, we can open new trading links, get cheap natural gas, and forget about trying to be a poundland world policeman; that was finished half a century ago at least.

It’s KIEV, not “Kyiv”…

…and civil rights are fast-disappearing anyway under the multi-headed assault of “wokery”, the Jew-Zionist lobby, and such as the excrescences of the “Covid” madness.

I could design something far better than both, easily, and I am not even an architect.

The statement shown [update, next day: removed…], a statement of how a young Jew was indoctrinated at a young age by his mother into having a pathological fear of “anti-Semitism”, could have been used as an example of a typical such upbringing by the defence in the last Alison Chabloz trial…

Looking at those statements, it is clear why virtually all the Soviet spies in the USA in the 1930s and 1940s were Jews. Look at the atom bomb spies. Pretty much every one was a Jew (there were a few exceptions, such as Melita Norwood, and a few others were only half or part-Jew, e.g. Klaus Fuchs): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_spies#Notable_spies.

Welcome to the end of democracy

https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/welcome-to-the-end-of-democracy

Well worth reading. Which is why I am reposting long extracts here:

A rising tide of money and administrative power defines the rising autocracy.

As executive compensation reached the stratosphere in Big Tech and finance, small businesses face what the Harvard Business Review calls ‘an existential threat.’ Experts now warn that one third of small businesses, which comprise the majority of US companies and employ nearly half of all workers, could ultimately shut down for good. Hundreds of thousands have already disappeared, including nearly half of all black-owned businesses. Particularly damaged have been the small merchants along Main Street and those working for them, such as restaurant and hospitality workers.

Climate-change policies could nurture the new autocracy for a generation. As tech oligarchs and the financial establishment implement the Davos notion of a Great Reset, they will force a quick end to fossil fuels. There are huge opportunities for massive investment by super-rich companies and speculators in the ‘green economy,’ all made possible with tax breaks, loans and guaranteed sales to governmental units.

This promises to create a new crop of mega-billionaires like Elon Musk, today the world’s richest man. In the era of super-subsidies, a wannabe electric-vehicle maker like Rivian, which has negligible sales and consistent losses, can be valued higher than General Motors, which sells almost seven million cars and has $122 billion (£90 billion) in revenues each year. In Green Capitalism, the British Marxist James Heartfield labels this ‘austerity socialism’: reaping governmental edicts as opposed to actually producing real goods. Nice work if you can get it.

For the middle and working classes, however, the Great Reset may prove somewhat less promising — if not disastrous. For most people, notes Eric Heymann, a senior economist at Deutsche Bank Research, the rapid ‘green’ transition will mean ‘a noticeable loss of welfare and jobs.’ The conscious policy of degrowth as a means of forcibly reducing greenhouse gas emissions will require getting most people out of their cars, and forcing them to travel far less and to live in tiny apartments. Enforcement will be necessarily intrusive as well. Planners in the UK and elsewhere are pushing for family ‘carbon budgets.’ Add surveillance technology and we end up with something akin to China’s ‘social credit’ system, in which your right to free movement is subject to government approval.

The young are particularly threatened by these changes — younger people already face much harder prospects than any postwar generation. Few expect things to improve: across the higher-income countries, roughly two-thirds of people surveyed by Pew Research see a poorer future for the next generation. According to researchers at the Equality of Opportunity Project, about 90 per cent of those born in 1940 grew up to earn higher incomes than their parents. The same is true for only 50 per cent of those born in the 1980s. A recent study by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis warns that millennials are in danger of becoming a ‘lost generation’ in terms of wealth accumulation. To make matters worse, over half of all young people, in a survey of ten countries, think the world is doomed by climate change.

As housing and other costs skyrocket, class lines are hardening. Inheritance as a share of GDP in France has grown roughly threefold since 1950, with some upper-income French millennials inheriting more money than many workers make in a lifetime. The growing importance of inherited assets is even more pronounced in Germany, Britain and the United States. In the US, a country with a national mythology that looks askance at inherited wealth, the children of property-owning parents are far better situated to own a house eventually (often with parental help) and enter what is now known as ‘the funnel of privilege.’ In America, millennials are three times as likely as boomers to count on inheritance for their retirement. Among the youngest cohort, aged eighteen to twenty-two, over 60 per cent expect that inheritance will be their primary source of income as they age.

How will the downwardly mobile react to the prospect of permanent rental serfdom and, ultimately, total dependence on the state? A recent Edelman survey reveals that increasing numbers no longer trust institutions or believe hard work pays off. In a world dominated by a few institutions, today’s precariat of gig and short-contract workers, and those who have dropped out of the workforce entirely, could become an economically less useful version of Marx’s proletariat: a permanent underclass requiring aggressive, quasi-military policing.

Meanwhile, large tech firms and financial giants — even those sceptical about climate change zealotry — see the prospect of record profits and valuations in ‘disruption.’ The pandemic accelerated the white-collar shift to remote work, and the broader demand for automated solutions skyrocketed. A future less reliant on human labor elevates the tech oligarchs to the highest perch on what Lenin called ‘the commanding heights’ of the economy.

In a digitalised economy, it’s good to control the critical niches. The oligarchs do this brilliantly. They have seized dominant shares of key markets from search (Google) to social media (Facebook) to book sales (Amazon). Google and Apple together provide over 95 per cent of operating software for mobile devices, while Microsoft still accounts for over 80 per cent of the software that runs personal computers around the world.

We are increasingly ruled by a perfect marriage of class convenience, with more power for the clerisy and ever-greater economic opportunities for the oligarchy — all with the added benefit of encouraging them to feel good about themselves. Even as they push austerity on the masses, they live like medieval lords, indulging in lavish weddings and building estates reminiscent of the Habsburgs’. Jeff Bezos just spent $100 million (£80 million) on a Hawaiian retreat. Bill Gates’s daughter just enjoyed a $2 million (£1.5 million) wedding. John Kerry, president Biden’s chief climate scold and beneficiary of an heiress’s fortune, travels on a private jet that use thirty times the energy of the average American vehicle.

The tech oligarchs are creating something similar to what Aldous Huxley called in Brave New World Revisited a ‘scientific caste system.’ There is ‘no good reason,’ Huxley wrote in 1958, that ‘a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown.’ It will condition its subjects from the womb so that they ‘grow up to love their servitude’ and ‘never dream of revolution.’ It will maintain a strict social order and provide enough diversion through drugs, sex and videos to keep their artificially narrowed minds occupied and sated.

[Joel Kotkin, in The Spectator]

Sobering analysis.

Still, it may be that the “perfect system” the Western ruling circles and cabals strive towards will be smashed, either by natural events or by war. Not a nice prospect but something of the sort may be, also, the only way for Western society to escape from socio-political sclerosis.

The “Left”/”Right” terminology is useless. Let’s be specific: much of the censorship and “cancelling” comes from the Jew-Zionist element; the rest from the “woke”, multikulti, fake “diversity” side, but in fact much of that has been fostered by Jews as well, at least in its origins. Those two “sides” may clash on some issues (mostly Israel/Palestine) but are both drivers of intellectual repression.

Outside academia too. I have been attacked without pause by the Jew-Zionist element, and for many years, not least since this blog started just over five years ago.

Regular readers of the blog will know that I was recently blogging about all of this (in general, not this latest news), concluding that the Conservative Party probably can recover its position if it bins Johnson fairly soon. Initially, I thought that idiot would go before summer this year, but corrected myself to say spring 2022. Now? Seems that it could be any moment.

There is no constitutional imperative for a General Election to be held before late 2024 and, at the end of the day, Labour is offering nothing to the British people either, so once The Idiot is binned, the Cons may be able to recover at least to near-parity with Lab.

I saw an interesting analysis, to the effect that, even if there were a general election right now, Labour might still have a majority of a handful of seats, or even no majority.

In the end, though, both Lab and Con are two faces of the (((System))), and are under the same concealed flag.

Diary Blog, 18 January 2022, with more thoughts about the BBC

[The Cloisters, Upper Manhattan, New York City, USA; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cloisters]

The BBC and its funding

A tweet showcasing, and impliedly criticizing, the views expressed by the half-Jew mass media figure Michael Grade [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Grade].

To a large extent, Grade’s views about the BBC are wrongheaded. While I think that the time has indeed come for the BBC licence fee (tax) to go, I do not think that the BBC should simply be left to sink or swim in the commercial media world.

Grade apparently wants the BBC to get rid of BBC2 and BBC Four television, presumably to save money. To echo Margaret Thatcher, “No! No! No!” Completely wrong. BBC2 and BBC Four are the best bits of BBC TV, the bits worth keeping and, though only after reforms are executed, the bits worth subsidizing.

The obvious way to subsidize the BBC is through direct government subsidy. Critics say that that would mean the BBC becoming a government mouthpiece. Hardy ha ha. What has it been for the past ~20 years (and certainly very arguably, since the 1920s)?

We do not say that, for example, the courts cannot do their job properly and (reasonably) impartially because they are funded directly, that is from central funds.

The licence fee system is both unfair and inefficient, with large collection (and enforcement) costs. It comes down to us from an era prior to, and immediately subsequent to, the Second World War, when people had to have licences to own, among other things, a radio, or a dog.

The original licence was for radio, and was introduced in 1923; the TV licence was introduced in 1946: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_licensing_in_the_United_Kingdom#History.

In previous blog posts, I have explained my overall view: I support public service broadcasting, and think that the effective founder of the BBC, Lord Reith, had the right ethos, “to inform, to educate, and to entertain“, in that order. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Reith,_1st_Baron_Reith#%22Reithianism%22; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC#1927_to_1939.

What that means to me is that both commercial and populist considerations have to take second or third place. The BBC, as or if a public service broadcaster, must have the confidence to ignore the siren voices of “is it popular?” or “is it competing with commercial mass media?“. The whole point of subsidizing the BBC is that it has no need to compete with ITV, or Sky, and no need to pander to the tastes of the uncultured.

The BBC went wrong a long long time ago. In the 1960s. The pandering to mass sports interest by coverage such as Grandstand was part of that, as was the commissioning of most BBC comedy and variety shows, and the later focus on popular dramas, and what we now term “soaps” (from the American “soap operas”, sponsored by detergent companies, shows such as The Guiding Light).

Generally, it can be said that, especially during the 1970s and thereafter, there was the impetus to compete for notional “ratings” with ITV and, later, after the 1980s, Sky. Pointless and unnecessary.

My solution for the current BBC question would be to keep BBC News, BBC2 and BBC Four, though all reformed, and with a far higher cultural level on BBC2. No newsreaders (or others) getting anything over £200,000 a year in gross pay, at absolute maximum. A focus on arts, sciences, current affairs, and historical subjects.

As for radio, keep only Radio 3, Radio 4, and the BBC World Service (and return that last to its pre-1990 glory days). Radio 3 to reverse its current dumbing-down tendency, and Radio 4 to be thoroughly purged of its now-pervasive Jewish influence, suburban “wokery”, and general hostility to white Northern European life and culture.

Subsidize the above; get rid of, or sell off, the rest. Also, sack most of the present on-camera (and radio) staff. Start with useless overpaid drones such as Gary Lineker. Lord Reith would spin in his grave to see some ignorant big-mouth of that sort paid a million a year to shoot the breeze about football (the new “opiate of the masses”).

Amusing note:

In researching for the above piece about the BBC, I happened to see something about John Logie Baird, generally considered the inventor of television (though there are others with good claims as well, including Germans, Americans, Japanese and Russians: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechanical_television#Television_demonstrations). What amused me was this:

“Soon after arriving in London, looking for publicity, [John Logie] Baird visited the Daily Express newspaper to promote his invention [television]. The news editor was terrified and he was quoted by one of his staff as saying: “For God’s sake, go down to reception and get rid of a lunatic who’s down there. He says he’s got a machine for seeing by wireless! Watch him—he may have a razor on him.” [Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Logie_Baird].

How often we see those ahead of their time described as insane, or silly. The inventor of the hovercraft, Cockerell, received only limited personal benefit from his work during his lifetime. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Cockerell#The_hovercraft.

Savile, like others such as the Jews Greville Janner and Leon Brittan, seems to have been protected by the Jewish/Israel lobby. Savile himself as good as admitted it in a TV interview I saw not very long before his death. He said or implied that he was part-Jew (which may or may not have been true, almost certainly not), and that he had somehow helped the Israeli Embassy with matters (who knows?).

Starmer, of course, is married to a Jewish woman lawyer, and their children are being brought up as if fully-Jewish. He is a member of Labour Friends of Israel.

I have no idea whether the above allegations in respect of Starmer’s role in the Savile scandal indicate that Starmer deliberately tried to protect Savile (he may have been simply incompetent, or just mistaken). Still, the matter should be investigated, if it has not already been.

Don’t blame Raab, as such. Blame the system that put him there. Blame a system that puts idiots like Michael Fabricant, Boris Johnson, Claire Rayner, Diane Abbott, Nadine Dorries, and hundreds like them, into Parliament. Not to mention the untermenschen such as Fiona Onasanya (now binned and on the dole, but others are still there).

Drunken Churchill, in 1940, made the famous “we shall fight on the beaches” speech, in which he said ” We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender…”, but could of course never have imagined that, 81 years on, most of the British people are more interested in football, TV talent shows, and dance competitions, than in “defending their island”.

Indeed, a significant minority of deluded persons actually welcome the invasion of Britain by hordes who, at best, will be useless, and at worst a mortal danger both to UK citizens and to the national heredity.

Ultimately, you can see what element is behind this warmongering in the USA and UK— the same “element” that was behind the two world wars. “They” play on existing tensions for strategic profit.

Amazingly self-assured performance from such a young girl. Incidentally, “valenki” are felt boots (traditional Russian winter footwear).

Short foray

Made a foray into a small suburbanized town about 6 miles from my now-humble home. Driving along, and waiting in the car for a while, I was observing the local people. At the railway station, quite a few (what I took to be) 16-18 y-o school students waiting. Every single one was looking at, indeed absorbed in, her or his mobile device, apparently oblivious to other people, the natural world, everything. Few seemed to be typing (if that is the right word); just silently, it seemed, staring down at the device. Strange society…

The other oddity was how many of the older people in the main —in fact only— shopping street were wearing facemasks while walking along; that despite the sun and a light breeze (and the low temperature). About half. The facemask nonsense has become ingrained in the more “conditioned” or less-thinking part of the public.

The toytown police state at work

https://www.advertiserandtimes.co.uk/news/police-called-to-anti-covid-vaccination-protest-at-ringwood-9235507/

POLICE were called to Ringwood School this morning (Monday) as a small group of anti-Covid vaccination protesters forced their way onto its grounds.

The alarm was raised around 8.20am amid reports six people demonstrating against pupils being given the jab had turned up at the school in Parsonage Barn Lane. They gained entry via the reception area.

Twelve patrol cars were said to have been at the scene while officers dealt with the incident as both the Hampshire force and the school assured there was no danger to youngsters or staff.” [local newspaper report].

So no less than 12 police cars were sent to monitor a tiny and peaceful local civic protest involving only six individuals? No wonder the police are unable to deploy resources to deal with ordinary crime. Just as well that no-one made an “anti-Semitic” remark, or it might have been necessary to call for armed anti-terror police back-up…

Quite often now, it appears that this country has gone absolutely mad.

Historical views on history and monarchy

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10404373/The-Queen-RIGHT-axe-Prince-Andrew-sake-monarchy-says-WILSON.html

Was reading the above article on the Royal Family and UK monarchy by scribbler A.N. Wilson.

Long ago now, I reviewed a book by A.N. Wilson on Amazon UK, where I was about 40th most popular reviewer (out of millions). Later, around 2012, the Jew-Zionist lobby had me barred from reviewing on Amazon UK (and on the separate American site…so much for “free speech” in the occupied USA…). All my reviews were then hidden from the public, and remain so.

One of the reviews effectively lost was the one about a book on British history in the 20th century, by A.N. Wilson. My view had been that his book was a really good read, but at the same time riddled with historical inaccuracies, absurd conclusions, and simple spelling mistakes. This article is similar in some respects.

Look at this:

“…we should not take the durability of the institution for granted. 

At the end of World War I, when Russia, Germany, Austria and many other European nations were replacing their monarchs with forms of government in every way more tyrannical and bloody, George V, our king, once quietly remarked: ‘I’m going to have to work hard to keep my job.’

He and his wife, Queen Mary, did indeed work to develop the concept of constitutional monarchy.

Far from endangering parliamentary democracy, it strengthened it. With a monarch as head of state, there is continuity and stability — it is no accident we remained a democracy when countries without kings or emperors ended up with leaders such as Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and Franco.”

Well, let’s see. “At the end of WW1...” etc: In 1917, the rule of Nikolai II in Russia was replaced by that of the Provisional Government under Prince Lvov and Alexander Kerensky. It was not “tyrannical” or “bloody“, but was chaotic and unable to rule. Indeed, one could argue that the previous years of Nikolai’s rule, at least since the 1905 uprising, had been at times both tyrannical and bloody, especially if the Russian participation in WW1 is placed on the scales.

True, the Bolshevik government, which replaced the Provisional government later in 1917, was certainly bloody and, in the lay sense, tyrannical, and that was so even under Lenin, certainly later yet under Stalin.

Germany after WW1 was not a tyranny. The Weimar Republic was decadent, badly-run, verged on disorder at times, and was quite illiberal towards those who, like Hitler, were German nationalists, but it cannot really be called either tyrannical or bloody. Neither was the government of Hitler, in its 6 years of relative peace (1933-1939). It was dictatorial; it was not tyrannical. There is a difference. As for “bloody”, not so, overall.

Austria did become a kind of dictatorship, but only after 1933, under Dollfuss and, subsequently, Schuschnigg, but for the preceding 14 years had been a constitutional democracy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Austrian_Republic.

What about Wilson’s contention that ” He [George V of England] and his wife, Queen Mary, did indeed work to develop the concept of constitutional monarchy.” True up to a point. Wilson’s phrasing is awkward. The “concept of constitutional monarchy” had been developing in England and the UK for centuries, certainly since the English Civil War and the century following (17th/18th centuries).

Moreover, the same process was happening across Europe; certainly that was so in the 19th Century. It was not confined to the UK by any means.

As for Italy, Mussolini was dictatorial, though not officially a dictator (though he presented himself as such). Some who were (thankfully) repressed under his rule (notably the Mafia and other criminals, and Stalinist Communists) would say (wrongly) that he was a tyrant, but Italy remained a constitutional monarchy right the way through Mussolini’s rule, a fact that Wilson either does not know or fails to mention.

An Allied invasion of Sicily began in July 1943, leading to the collapse of the Fascist regime and the fall of Mussolini on 25 July. Mussolini was deposed and arrested by order of King Victor Emmanuel III in co-operation with the majority of the members of the Grand Council of Fascism, which passed a motion of no confidence. On 8 September, Italy signed the Armistice of Cassibile, ending its war with the Allies.” [Wikipedia].

In fact, Italy only ceased to be a monarchy in 1946, following a mass referendum.

So Wilson seems once again to need either a history lesson or a lesson in how to express himself. Having said that, I certainly agree with most of his criticism, in the article, of Harry (“the Royal Cuck”), Meghan Markle (“the Royal Mulatta”), Andrew Windsor, and others, such as the horrible and entitled (mostly in both senses) moneygrubbing “younger members of the Royal Family”.

I believe that A.N. Wilson was once a regular guest of the Queen at table, at Windsor Castle, but was (sometime in the 1980s, or maybe a little later) cold-shouldered after he wrote a piece in the Evening Standard about what he had heard at dinner.

I see that I am not the only one to have noticed Wilson’s factual inaccuracies: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A._N._Wilson#Critiques_of_Wilson’s_work.

I stick with my view, held for nearly two years now, that much of the Covid madness has been a very-large-scale psychological experiment in mass conditioning, designed to result, down the line, in an almost robotic and very Pavlovian response to the orders of the System.

Remember the early/mid 2020 “social distancing”, with lines of shoppers obediently x-metres or feet away from each other, only moving forward on the orders of deadhead supermarket “marshals”? Then there has been the facemask nonsense, as noted in the tweet. Also, the almost-useless and often dangerous “vaccines” and “boosters”, and the equally-useless mass “testing” for “the virus”.

Somewhere not far down the line, there will be the microchipping of the population . Those refusing to be microchipped will be, pretty much, social outcasts, unable to travel internationally or even within the UK (or wherever), all but unable to access services, all but unable to buy food or car fuel (as cash is phased out). Already, I read, many under-24 people are accustomed to using cards for almost all purchases, and use cash as little as once or twice per month. They will be easily persuaded to be microchipped. The microchipping will come in “not with a bang but a whimper”, and few will see the dangers and implications; even fewer will resist.

We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children”— 14 words…

It may be, that not very far in the future, the societies of Western and Central Europe will fall into complete decadence, their economies ruined, their legal and political systems ineffective and scarcely operational. A kind of Dark Age may be coming. If so, what really matters is to be prepared to seed a new pan-European civilization and culture, which can eliminate evil and disorder, so that a better future, and far future, will be able to exist.

I posted the above film clip out of amusement, really. I (quite genuinely) wonder why idiots like that speaker, and her tiny and lumpenproletarian audience, waste time on demonstrations like that. Still, there it is.

A long time ago, in the 1980s, I was —very unusually— coming out of the Circle Line station at King’s Cross. It was a a summer afternoon. There was, just before the stairs leading to the street, a bank of public telephones. I happened to notice that there was a small black diary or notebook on the floor. I picked it up and looked at it, thinking that I might post it back to the owner, or hand it in to the police.

Said diary turned out to belong to someone at an address nearby, so I walked there. Why not? I was in no hurry, and I like to help people if I can.

I noticed that the appointments for the coming weeks were all this march, that demo, and feminist workshops etc. It was a slice of life straight out of a Private Eye parody, or the then “AgitProp” sections of magazines such as Time Out, or City Limits [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Out_(magazine); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_Limits_(magazine)].

I soon arrived at the flat where the diary’s owner lived, 1930s social housing. I (dressed in a pinstripe suit, and sporting a silk tie) knocked at the door. A strange, rather red-faced and intense young woman opened the door, but only about 6 inches. I explained that I had found the diary and where. She looked very suspicious; taking the diary, she shut the door without a word of thanks! I suppose that when the (1980s version) of the “woke” revolution (was going to come), courtesy, or indeed simple politeness, and gratitude, would be unnecessary…

Perhaps the odd young woman thought that I was a member of MI5 or Special Branch who had stolen her diary to get intelligence, and/or was wanting to get to know her or even recruit her. Or did she imagine that I wanted to rape her (or whatever)? God knows. Stupid creature. As often said, “no good deed goes unpunished”…

Did the young woman use the public telephones to avoid any telephone tap on her own telephone? Or did she simply not have a telephone in the flat? Mobile telephones were effectively unknown then, of course.

I wonder where said young woman is now? Probably a member of the Labour Party (Corbyn faction), and/or a local Labour councillor, now aged 60+ and with decades of silly militancy behind her. Or did she fall by the wayside en route to the post-Marxist promised land, marry some accountant or solicitor, and acquire a suburban house, and a holiday home in some place unaffected by the collapse of white England? Who knows?

I believe in public service broadcasting, but the BBC has not been that, in any serious way, for years, for many years.

I believe in the original dictum of Lord Reith: “inform, educate, and entertainin that order of priority.

The major strategic mistake the BBC made, at least 50 years ago, was to compete with ITV (and commercial radio) for “ratings”, i.e. cheap popularity. The whole point of having the licence fee (meaning a tax on owning a TV) was, or should have been, to create a TV and radio service which concentrated on relatively “high-minded” stuff. Instead of that, the BBC established Radio 1 and, on TV, dumbed down, first of all, BBC1 TV and then BBC2 TV.

The dumbing-down continued, particularly from the 1980s. In the 1990s and thereafter, the BBC television output gradually declined in quality, and the new efforts were generally poor. BBC Three television was markedly rubbish (it was eventually put online-only), though one bright spot was the new BBC Four, which is now (now that BBC 2 TV is so poor) the only decent BBC TV station, the only one with any intellectual pretension.

As for radio, the World Service was reduced from something really worthwhile in the 1970s and 1980s to very poor in terms of quality through the 1990s, and by 2010 to rock-bottom.

The process continues. On radio, it is noticeable that the dumbing-down continues; Radio 3 output is sometimes close to some of that on Radio 2 these days.

I therefore welcome the announcement that the BBC licence fee (tax) is going to be abolished. I welcome it on principle, and also because, these days, something like the BBC, a huge and bloated corporation run by and staffed by, largely, an in-group, almost all thinking the same way (and mostly the wrong way), is totally anachronistic.

Turn on your TV. How many channels are there? 100? More. Yes, mostly rubbish, but many not, or not completely. Do the few BBC ones really offer anything different from the rest? I say no. Ads? The BBC may not have paid advertising, but it advertises its own shows all the time, which is equally irritating.

Now we have the Internet as well. There is just no justification for subsidizing what the BBC, most of the time, now does.

At one time, almost every country in the world, even the tiniest, had its own “national airline” or “flagcarrier”. That was basically an outcome of international conditions that, by the 1980s, had already been superseded by new norms that better reflected reality. The BBC, as it now is, has no place of significance in the world, and no right to be subsidized by a punitive tax.

I also look forward, of course, to the overpaid BBC drones and “celebrities” having their rice-bowls taken away, but that is a secondary, though pleasant, thought.

Diary Blog, 15 January 2022, including an outline of the failure of the latest Jew-Zionist attempt to prosecute me

Blog news

Readers of my blog will be unaware that, nearly 6 months ago, an individual closely-connected to the fake “charity” known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] made a malicious and unwarranted complaint to the police about me.

I shall not mention today the name of the guilty individual, nor those of his half-dozen or so most-guilty accomplices.

In the heat of summer, on my birthday at that, two local uniformed police arrived at my door, and informed me that ********** (a serial complainer to police, as I knew but they, probably, did not) had accused me of “racial harassment”.

After a brief discussion —slightly heated, certainly exasperated, on my side— the police agreed to email me with details of when I might, on a date of my choosing, be willing to attend the local police station.

I arranged for a London solicitor known to me to be in attendance remotely, via telephone, but on the agreed day of the interview (about a week later) there was a communications problem, so the interview was rescheduled.

Three weeks or so after the police had arrived (entirely unnecessarily) at my door, I attended the (so-called) “voluntary” interview at the new and bijou local police station, set in a quiet location away from the nearest road. A hot and sunny Saturday, and early evening.

So quiet, in terms of crime, is the local town, that the new police station is rather hidden away, and one has to press a button to ask to be let in.

The young policeman (well, when you are 65, as I now am, they all look young!) who had come to my door, and a female colleague, interviewed me on both audio and video tape (pursuant to the Police and Criminal Evidence Act [PACE] 1984,

I had prepared (and already emailed) a quite long statement about the situation as I saw it, i.e. the 9 years of attempts by dishonest and malicious Jew-Zionists to have me, inter alia, expelled from Twitter, disbarred, questioned by police, arrested, prosecuted, tried, convicted, and imprisoned.

So far, they have had me disbarred [see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/], though both wrongfully and actually unlawfully (see the link just posted for details). That was in October 2016, complaint having been made in 2014 (sub nom “UK Lawyers for Israel”).

The Jew-Zionists also managed to have me expelled from Twitter (in 2018, via a concerted conspiratorial campaign which took them about 6 years).

The said pack, or connected packs, have also had me questioned a few times now by the police (twice under caution), but I have never been arrested, never been charged or summonsed, never been prosecuted, never been tried, never been convicted, and never been imprisoned.

As we know, “they” can be relentless in their vindictive pursuit, as written about by none other than William Shakespeare, and the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” crowed mightily, after satirical singer Alison Chabloz was imprisoned, that it had taken the “CAA” 5 years “to get her“.

That evil pack will no doubt make further attempts to use “lawfare” (as they call it) to attack British people such as me, people standing up for Britain and for European civilization. They will continue to fail, most of the time.

Reverting to that police interview, though, it started off with some rather odd questions. I was asked when I last had had a drink! This was not their way of offering me a cold beer on a very hot day, but I have no idea whether that is now a standard police question in the era of the nanny-state, or whether I looked intoxicated!

I thought about it for a second, before answering that I had had a glass of cognac— about a week previously. That answer made both of them laugh, as I explained that I do not drink a great deal these days.

Another odd question was as to whether I had ever been in the Army, by which I assumed they meant the British Army (rather than the Salvation Army, Church Army, Barmy Army, or the Foreign Legion (etc) . I replied, truthfully, that I had never held any commission, nor any enlisted rank, in the Army, though I had spent the odd day, and the odd weekend, as a kind of visitor, on British Army bases (in the 1970s and late 1980s).

I have to admit that the police were polite, even pleasant, and of course they were “only following orders” by asking about that absurd accusation of harassment.

After a few more questions (mostly as to whether I had any medical conditions), we started the interview proper. I read into the record my two-page statement. My throat was dry after the first page. The woman police person (are they still called “WPCs”?—maybe not) very kindly offered me a mug of water, and brought it.

Amusingly enough, the mug had an appeal from the “Prevent” nonsense on the side, and a short telephone number. I made a joke about that, to the effect that if I had any more trouble from ********* (the guilty individual) and the “CAA”, I might have to call in to denounce them! I blogged about “Prevent” years ago [https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/05/30/one-mans-extremism-is-another-mans-struggle-for-liberty-and-justice/].

A few questions followed, mostly answered with “no comment”, and that was that. I was informed that I would not be placed under arrest, or charged there and then, but that the statement would be sent to other (unspecified) persons —I assumed to another part of the country, and/or the Crown Prosecution Service [CPS]— who would decide whether the matter would be taken further.

I parted from the police on an amicable basis, and briefly considered pocketing the now-empty “Prevent” mug as a souvenir and trophy, but thought better of it.

That, however, was not the end of the affair.

Some of my readers, perhaps especially any legal people, may ask why I made a statement at all, rather than just no-commenting. That is usually good advice (and is what the London solicitor had advised), but I decided to detail a number of matters going beyond the fact that there was no actual evidence of “racial” (or any other form of) harassment by me in relation to ********* (the guilty party…) and his pack. If you like, I decided to let rip and give the pack of bastards both barrels (metaphorically).

True, in the absence of any evidence that there had been any “harassment” in the first place, I could have, perhaps should have, in effect said, simply, “prove it“, but my decision was both tactical and also me wanting to put the record straight about those criminal CAA bastards.

Weeks passed. Months passed. Nothing happened, and I began to assume that the matter had been dropped but without formal notification, as had happened on a previous occasion, in 2017, when the same bastards, typically, had thought to kick me when I was down (soon after my wrongful and unlawful disbarment), and via another malicious complaint, that time under the notorious “bad law” known as Communications Act 2003, s.127.

That complaint had been to tame (((occupied))) police at Grays, Essex. (my blog post about that 2017 complaint against me can be found via the search box on this blog).

Well, just when I thought that it was safe to go back in the water, the local police sent me a letter. So creaking is Britain’s infrastructure now that it took 11 days to reach me (in the same area, only about 2 miles away, at that)! The decision had (it seemed, though nothing was written directly) still not been made to drop what was a ridiculous “case” that should never have been taken seriously by the police (in another part of the country, I believe) in the first place.

That was it. Forget both barrels. Think nuclear strike. I dropped a —metaphorical— strategic nuclear bomb. Within 24 hours, I had received email notification that the CPS had decided that no further action would be taken against me on the complaint by ********** and that I would receive no further contact about it.

In other words, ********** can slither away again now. I would suggest that he gets better legal advice next time.

Jesus Christ! Is there no-one in Germany to deal with that woman and those like her?

Amen…

Read Houston Stewart Chamberlain, Hitler, Rosenberg, Savitri Devi, and others. They are the source…

You carry in your blood the holy inheritance of your
fathers and forefathers. You do not know those who
have vanished in endless ranks into the darkness of the
past. But they all live in you and walk in your blood upon
the earth that consumed them in battle and toil and in
which their bodies have long decayed.

Your blood is therefore something holy. In it your parents gave you not only a body, but your nature. To deny your blood is to deny yourself. No one can
change it. But each decides to grow the good that one has
inherited and suppress the bad. Each is also given will
and courage.

You do not have only the right, but also the duty to pass
your blood on to your children, for you are a member of
the chain of generations that reaches from the past into
eternity, and this link of the chain that you represent
must do its part so that the chain is never broken.

But if your blood has traits that will make your children
unhappy and burdens to the state, then you have the

heroic duty to be the last. The blood is the carrier of life. You carry in it the secret of creation itself. Your blood is holy, for in it God’s will
lives

Britain, where nuts are treated as serious protesters

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10395493/Hammer-wielding-activist-scales-BBCs-Broadcasting-House-starts-destroying-Eric-Gill-sculpture.html

This is what Britain has become; it has descended into a place where any nut with a hammer and a narrow view of history can destroy a statue, a painting, a mural, or some other artwork, while the politically-correct and hugely-ignorant police stand around doing nothing, and as other ignorant persons applaud the vandalism online or otherwise.

As for the nut himself in this case, some cigarette-smoking “chav” type, he apparently shouted out to passers-by, including women, who were telling him to stop vandalizing, that they were “paedos”. What can one say?

Eric Gill [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Gill] certainly was perverse, but so have been many other artists of note. Gill’s art is not 100% to my taste either, but that does not necessarily mean that it can just be destroyed by the first idiot that turns up with a hammer and a contrived grievance.

Society is built on order. There are worrying signs in the UK that disorder is slowly taking over, and I am not talking only about idiots vandalizing statues or artworks.

Upcoming Southend West by-election

It is not worthwhile blogging about the upcoming Southend West by-election in any great detail, because the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties are boycotting the event out of “respect” for the assassinated MP whose death triggered the by-election. That means that, as with the by-election at Batley and Spen held some years ago after the Jo Cox assassination, the voters of Southend will be denied the array of choice (however false) that they would usually have.

Not even Green Party and Reform UK (the latest Farage vehicle) will be standing candidates.

Wikipedia has opened a page about the by-election, which is set down for 3 February 2022: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_Southend_West_by-election.

As can be seen on Wikipedia, a number of minor candidates are standing. Two of at least passing interest are Steve Laws (UKIP), well-known for his reportage tweeting about the continuing cross-Channel migration-invasion, and Jayda Fransen (standing as Independent, but formerly a member of two or three parties).

I have blogged about Jayda Fransen in the past: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/09/11/diary-blog-11-september-2020-including-a-few-notes-about-jayda-fransen-and-her-new-british-freedom-party/.

Southend West has been held by the Conservative Party since its creation in 1950, the Con vote peaking the following year at 69.1%.

The MP elected in 1950, 1951 and 1955 was the very wealthy Anglo-American, Henry “Chips” Channon, famous for his indiscreet diaries [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Channon]. His rather mediocre son, Paul Channon, “inherited” the seat and was elected in a by-election in 1959, holding the seat thereafter until 1992, when David Amess was elected on a vote-share of 38.8% (LibDems second on 33.1%). In every subsequent election, Amess’s vote never dipped below 46%.

In 2019, Amess was elected with a solid 59.2% of the vote (Labour second on 28.1%; LibDems third with 11.4%).

In the by-election, The Conservative Party candidate, one Anna Firth, a barrister and Sevenoaks District Council councillor [https://www.linkedin.com/in/anna-firth-095271202/], has tried to reach the House of Commons on two previous occasions. Looks like it will be “third time lucky” for her.

I could not see Anna Firth’s name on the chambers’ website for the set with which Ms. Firth is supposedly connected (Hailsham Chambers), so it looks as though she is no longer there. The Daily Mail and Linked-In also mention her as CEO of an “e-learning” organization (some kind of taxpayer-funded “social enterprise”, it appears), so maybe she is no longer in active practice at the Bar at all: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10299379/Conservatives-select-candidate-Southend-West-election.html.

There is minor interest around this by-election, in seeing firstly what vote-share Ms. Firth will get, in the absence of any real competition; also, as to the number of protest votes going to UKIP’s Steve Laws and to Jayda Fransen. Steve Laws may do better than Ms. Fransen; we shall see.

Stupid idiotic puppet.

Exactly what I was thinking yesterday when I saw the monkeyhouse on TV, and then Boris-idiot exiting to his car, in the open air, black muzzle-mask in place.

What goes around comes around..

She has a point. I agree with her. The very few MPs I have met in my life have mostly been pretty stupid; in fact they have all been.

Parliament, like the NHS, the Bar, the Church, Oxford and Cambridge universities (in fact, most universities), the trade unions, and much else in Britain, is running on empty.

Someone in public life who seems not to be a complete idiot. There must be some mistake…

It has taken the msm about 20 years to catch up with me, or to where I was.

Latest opinion polling

I recently blogged that “Boris” would not survive beyond the summer of 2022. Looks like I should have written “Spring”…

Exactly. The same phenomenon, or a similar one, seen from 2017 to 2019 continues: many voters with nowhere to go, as shown in the graphic below.

If only there were a credible social-national party. It might have been able to really launch in the past two years of a headless Government and an equally-clueless Labour-label “Opposition”.

The German Reich and the Soviet Union fought and died, the Reich quickly in 1945, the Soviet Union slowly over decades. It was a fated and fateful encounter. There is today no reason, good or otherwise, for Europe, including Eastern Europe, to exhaust itself in terror and bloodshed.

Very picturesque, even if the music (by Shostakovitch) added for the amateur YouTube video is anachronistic (I think that the film itself is from the famous 1960s War and Peace).

I prefer the (Khatchaturian) music in the video below:

It would be a fatal error to imagine that that could not happen. All serious wargames since 1960 that postulated use of tactical nuclear weapons have ended up with strategic nuclear weapons being used.

What would that mean in the UK? First, sudden and deadly Spetsnaz attacks by lethal special forces units on ground targets in this country— early-warning stations, ports, air bases, transport infrastructure, Internet infrastructure, and on heads of state and government. Then nuclear attacks on the same, if still in one piece.

Russia is about 72x the area of the UK. Nuclear attacks on Russia by NATO (mainly USA) would cause undreamt-of destruction, but Russia would survive, and rebuild, even if it took a hundred years. Were the UK to be attacked with nuclear weapons, almost all of the country would be flattened. Britain might not survive in any recognizable form.

The whole idea of Britain joining the Americans in war with Russia is mad. Why do it? So that Jew oligarchs can continue to exploit Ukraine? So that Ukraine, which prior to 1991 was never an independent state, can keep its present borders, which contain —especially in the East— large numbers of Russians and pro-Russians? So that the New World Order can expand its power?

Britain, disastrously, went to war in 1914 and then in 1939, both times for no good reason. Not again, I hope.

Steve Laws is standing in the Southend West by-election on 3 February 2022. I would normally not recommend a vote for UKIP, but in the absence of any real social-national candidate, Laws deserves at least a protest vote, if anyone there is going to vote at all.
