Diary Blog, 20 December 2019

I suppose that the headline for me would be that Boris-idiot has already shown signs of weaselling on some of his empty promises, though covering up that with lots of noisy hullabaloo. The part-Jew public entertainer again, this time in his most challenging comedy-drama role, as Prime Minister of the UK. His mistakes as Mayor of London were on a correspondingly smaller scale.

He has to call upon more serious noise to disguise his deficiencies this time, not just a cable-car over the Thames or a garden bridge over the river, promoted by a charming actress who, however, really should steer clear of government policy.

Joanna Lumley’s previous policy disaster was when she “shamed” the then Labour government into allowing not only retired Gurkha soldiers into the UK but their entire extended families. The result? Aldershot is now a Nepalese town (the inhabitants mostly living off State benefits). It is not now an Army town as it once was.

Ironically, the Gurkha retirees (whose pensions were previously upgraded to the British Army norm) would have been far better off living in Nepal, a very poor country where such pension monies go a long way.

Boris-idiot was not responsible for the Gurkha mistake, but he was responsible for the cable-car and the Garden Bridge, which —like “Boris Island” Airport— were not necessary and were unworkable as planned. I have nothing against either cable-cars or garden bridges in principle though. Also, what is the Boris obsession with the Thames?

Boris-idiot, we are told, “does not do detail”. Meaning that his mind is on the lofty outlines of grand strategy. I suppose some poor saps believe that nonsense. The greatest leaders of the 20thC were interested, at least up to a point, in detail. That lack of interest was what sank all three projects noted above.

The cable-car was built partly at public expense but carries only a few regular passengers per day (it was planned for commuter use but in fact is now just a tourist attraction). “There has also been criticism of the project’s £24 million-plus cost to taxpayers, caused by a budget overrun. Boris Johnson, the former Mayor of London, had said the cost of the scheme would not be underwritten by taxpayers.”[Wikipedia]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emirates_Air_Line_(cable_car)

As for the Garden Bridge, it was a lovely idea but was poorly-planned (the Boris leitmotiv). Wrong place, arguably, for one thing.

On 14 August 2017 after months of uncertainty the Garden Bridge Trust entirely abandoned the project. The BBC London transport correspondent Tom Edwards described the situation as a shambles which was “an embarrassing mess for the capital … already descend[ing] into finger pointing and a blame game over who is culpable for wasting £46.4m of public money”.[75] In February 2019 it was revealed that the total public cost had been £43m.”

Boris Island. Never got far beyond the cartoon brain of Boris-idiot. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-35855676

We can add to the above the water-cannon “Boris” ordered after his panicky (lack of) performance during the 2011 black riots in London. Scrapped and sold for peanuts. Another Boris disaster, though on a smaller scale; this time “only” £300,000 was lost. Still, the water-cannon did their job: not dealing with rioters, but getting Boris-idiot publicity as the man who wants to “get things done” (a completely mistaken view, of course).

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/nov/19/boris-johnson-unused-water-cannon-sold-for-scrap-at-300000-loss

Then there were the Boris-buses:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Routemaster#Criticism

https://www.cityam.com/a-brief-history-of-boris-and-buses/

You get the picture: Boris cannot plan anything, his ideas are rubbish, just schoolboy nonsense, he has no executive ability to get anything done properly, and he leaves the public with a headache and a bill.

A musical interlude:

and now to the Labour leadership contest

I shall blog separately about this once all the runners and riders have been listed.

In the meantime, a few tweets seen:

System drone Stephen Kinnock. An atheist. Shooed into a safe Welsh Labour seat, his wife a former Prime Minister of Denmark, he himself given, inter alia, a nice little sinecure at the British Council in St. Petersburg (via his father, ex-Labour leader and EU Commissioner Neil “We’re All Right!” Kinnock). Completely System, completely NWO/ZOG. A nasty little freeloader.

Clive Lewis is standing for the position of Labour leader. I saw this tweet by the Novara Media person Aaron Bastani:

Well, I have just read that piece. I cannot see anything of substance in what Clive Lewis says. Soundbite stuff about “democratizing the party” and about how “climate change” and “technological change” will define the next UK general election.

Underwhelming, like Lewis himself. His record is not inspiring. A “half-caste”, he read Economics at Bradford, but has never worked in that field. He spent time as a security guard before getting work as a local and regional journalist. He also held (2006-2009) commissioned rank in the Territorial Army, presumably as 2nd Lieutenant (unconfirmed; his eventual rank may have been higher). He was in Afghanistan for three months in 2009, but returned to the UK suffering from depression.

Lewis is MP for the relatively safe Labour seat of South Norwich.

There have been accusations of Lewis shouting inappropriate sexual jokes when drunk, and also of him groping at least one woman. He has also made other inappropriate remarks, usually of a sexual nature (e.g. one involving Ed Miliband and a goat).

My provisional view: underwhelming. Clive Lewis is not fully British for a start. Apart from that, his character seems weak to me. A loose cannon, not very trustworthy. On the face of it, could not hack Afghanistan for long and had a kind of breakdown. Whether that means that he could not fulfil a Labour leadership or, potentially, prime ministerial role, I do not know, but I doubt it and think that others might have similar doubts. Ideologically shallow. Unsuitable.

Having said the above, Clive Lewis’s pitch to the Labour rank and file (who will elect the leader in the end) is clever. It offers those rank and file members more —and more direct— power. That might be persuasive. Revolution in the revolution?

Another musical interlude…

Labour again…

I can see why many people are just laughing at the Labour leadership contest, after the recent election fiasco. However, the fact is that more than three-quarters of the 2017 Labour vote stayed with Labour: 32.2% as against 40%. Also, the demographics favour Labour in the medium term. As mentioned in previous blogs, had only under-25s voted, there would not be a single Conservative Party MP now. In fact, had only under-40s voted, most seats would be Labour, and even if only under-60s had voted, there might now be a Labour government.

Whoever wins the Labour leadership contest now may well head a Labour government in 2024, 2023 or even 2022.

Stray thoughts

Driving around the semi-flooded coastal part of Southern England in the dark this evening, it was incredible to experience how bad the roads are. Huge potholes, a feeling of disrepair. My car is fairly large, with large tyres, but these days it becomes necessary to drive something like a Range Rover just to smooth the ride! Thank God that I do not have false teeth!

Now it seems that this miserable new regime will press ahead with the HS2 white elephant, when the North of England needs regional railways and the South needs repair of the roads, which are degenerating into a 17thC condition. An exaggeration, but not a complete one.

The more I think about the state of the UK, the more I think that it will be fortunate to avoid either a repressive dystopia (following on perhaps from a chaotic one) or (and/or) some kind of civil war somewhere down the line.

  1. Joanna Lumley is a lovely lady with a good deal of class. I like women like that but, sadly, many with Lumley’s high-class social background are a bit out of touch with reality as regards subjects like immigration.

    As far as the Gurkhas were concerned, I could see where she was coming from and they are more deserving immigrants than the usual flotsam and jetsam of the world the cretinous globalists of the Labour Party and CON Party let in but due to past governments dating back to 1948 being far too soft on immigration we now have to exercise much more discretion as to who we allow in so the more deserving immigrants will ‘fall through the net’ and have the door shut in their faces.

    Talking about Boris-Idiot and his obsession with grand engineering projects, it is said that he backs a fixed link between Scotland and Northern Ireland. I don’t think the idea should be dismissed out of hand. It could, in theory, be a way of bringing the United Kingdom together as well as strengthening the economic links between the mainland UK and Northern Ireland. However, Boris-Idiot proposes a bridge between a rural and isolated part of Scotland and County Antrim.

    I think a better route/idea would be to build a tunnel between Belfast and Liverpool carrying a road and railway thereby connecting two of the UK’s largest cities.

    This may not be technically feasible, sadly, and would no doubt be extremely expensive. There is an interesting page on Wikipedia detailing some of the more outlandish ideas for tunnels etc. One idea is to build a undersea tunnel to connect South Korea with Japan.

    Mind you, Boris-Idiot can propose a bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland as much as he likes but it would be worthless to build it when his severely botched ‘Brexit In Name Only (BRINO) deal breaks-up the UK by placing NI within an effective economic ‘United Ireland’.

    His ludicrous deal runs a coach and horses through the Act of Union 1801 which united Ireland with the former Kingdom of Great Britain to create the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland which subsequently became the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. That act until Boris-Idiot came into power guaranteed unfettered free trade and a customs union between Ireland and Great Britain.

    As far as I know, NO country in history has ever survived by its own government dividing it like that economically by placing trade barriers to INTERNAL trade.

    Yes, Boris-Idiot really DOES NOT do detail as EVERY PM in the world should do. Sadly, we have an incompetent monkey for a PM!🙄🤬😡😞☹️

  3. Clive Lewis does have one good point at least. He is one of the Labour Party’s strongest backers of Proportional Representation which I think the party will now have to back considering how Scotland is lost probably for good (always assuming here it doesn’t break away because of Boris-idiot being in power) and the fact many other areas have turned away from Labour.

    Also, because as a supposedly democratic socialist party Labour should back greater democracy in principle and because an aspiration for a fairer and more equal society can’t be built on the back of a grotesquely unrepresentative and undemocratic voting system.

    As a country, we shouldn’t allow the CON Party to effectively steal election ‘victories’ . They should have to EARN them. After all, Iain Dunce-Smith and others are so fond of saying to the unemployed and the poor ‘there is no such thing as a free lunch’ so they should follow the same principle and stop having a rigged electoral system gifting them ‘wins’ through its very inefficient workings.

  4. I think you are being overly optimistic about this government. Sadly, we are stuck with them not until 2022 but 2024 at the earliest.

  5. Yes, even more wanton destruction of the countryside is a given when the environmental vandals of the Tory Party have a majority. The Chilterns – one of the nicest parts of England outside of London – will be wrecked by that HS2 scheme. The area is MEANT to be protected by it having been designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ (ANOB) back in the sixties! It already has the M40 going through it and now this! So much for the Tories rewarding the political loyalty of true blue strongholds like Chesham and Amersham, Beaconsfield, etc!

    That reminds me, I will have to visit Henley-UponThames, Amersham, Wendover, again etc before this scheme really gets going.

    Yes, the North needs its railways to be updated and have increased investment whereas the South doesn’t need HS2 and immigration needs to be radically curbed so that towns don’t expand ever outwards with new housebuilding.

    Tory areas like mine in Brentwood say to the CON Party place REAL tough controls on immigration rather than seek to diminish the Green Belt and our countryside.🤬😡☹️😞

    As for the Zac Goldsmith situation, Tories laud First Past The Post because they say it enables voters to get rid of their local MP ie such a person has a direct line of personal accountability to a fairly small specific local electorate. I agree with them that this one of the very few good points about the generally very flawed FPTP system. However, the good people of the Richmond Park constituency used this feature of the system to get rid of Zac Goldsmith YET what do they now find?

    Yes, that the Tory Party has contemptuously dismissed the verdict of the Richmond Park voters on Zac Goldsmith and given him a reward for being booted-out of the House of Commons by putting him into the UNELECTED House of Lords!

    1. Yes, Corbyn, McDonnell etc were their own worst enemies, in that they did not take the fight to the Jew-Zionists. They just weaselled, saying, “we are not ‘anti-Semitic'” etc. They even made pathetic bleats supporting “holocaust”nonsense. Why? Did they think that the Jew-Zionists would let them off the hook? They must be even more stupid than I thought, if so.

      Of course, Corbyn and McDonnell specifically could hardly deny that they *were* pro-IRA in the 1970s. They are walking incarnations of the Collet’s London Bookshop in Charing Cross Road, which existed (along with its Russian one, further along, near to Oxford Street) until the Soviet Union collapsed, taking with it the hidden subsidy which its directors had always denied. I used to visit both occasionally. Packed with Marxist, pro-IRA, and other literature. Morning Star, Black Flag (“The Journal of Revolutionary Anarchism”; I used to buy the odd copy of that one), Militant, An Phoblacht etc.

      For Corbyn, “the Battle of Cable Street” and the Cuban Revolution happened yesterday. He’s a living political fossil. His advisers came up with some good policies, but faced with Corbyn, thug McDonnell (now left looking like a mugged pensioner with dementia) and the banana-eaters on the Labour front bench, what could they do?

      My advice to whoever next becomes Labour leader? Number One, sack Diane Abbott.
