John Bingham, 7th Earl of Lucan
There is now renewed speculation over whether “Lord Lucan” (the title is now held by his son, the 8th Earl) is still alive.
I suppose that, after 45 years, a whole younger generation is scarcely if at all aware of the Lucan murder case:
I was 18 when that case became front-page news in late 1974. Over the years, I have read a little about it. For many years, I was convinced that Lucan was alive, he having been covertly relocated out of the UK by his wealthy and powerful friends. My rationale for that view was partly based on Lucan’s psychology: a fatalist, yet a gambler. For someone like that, there is always another spin of the wheel.
Later, my initial view was modified by the consideration that the worldwide hunt and continuing publicity must surely uncover the fugitive, if there was a fugitive. Now? I do not know what to think.
Ironically, Lucan’s financial problems might, today, have been less severe or pressing, in that he would today (perhaps; not all peers get money) have been entitled to claim £310 daily taxfree merely by “clocking in” at the House of Lords for 20 minutes per day, thus getting about £6,000+ per month.
A fine but almost unknown symphony by New Zealand’s most significant composer
Former MP Rory Stewart, now standing as Independent candidate for Mayor of London (the bookmakers have him as 2nd favourite), has climbed on the “holocaust” bandwagon and seems to be boosted by the malicious Jew-Zionist “charity”, the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”:
I suppose that most people are unaware that Stewart is part-Jew (one-quarter), a fact which I discovered (via an alert reader of my blog) while researching updates for my lengthy blog post about him, when he was a potential Conservative Party leader (he later resigned both as MP and from the Conservative Party). My piece about Stewart is linked here, below:
Stewart’s wife is also part-Jewish, and their children are being brought up in that cultural milieu.
Stewart says that “the holocaust” “makes us see how quickly political rhetoric and posturing can become murder“. Fine words from someone who not only supported the NWO invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan but who also, as MP (2010-2019), voted for all of the cruel and callous “welfare” “reform” measures drafted (and very ineptly too) by Iain Dunce Duncan Smith and his cronies, resulting in the deaths of literally tens of thousands of (mostly) BRITISH people.
Stewart has many talents, and his self-promotion, and self-inflation of his deeds, does not take away from those deeds or talents, but he was wrong for the position of Prime Minister (in potentio), and is probably wrong for the position of Mayor of London.
What did Stewart vote for? Oh, this sort of thing, in effect: “a disabled man with a long history of mental illness starved to death just months after welfare officials stopped his out-of-work and housing benefits.” [The Guardian]
At last, the msm is catching up, asking why it is that Americans, French, Japanese, Australians are being evacuated, sending dedicated hospital planes etc for that purpose, while the British official and political response has been the traditional and useless one of “tell people to be careful, and then make a statement in the House of Commons”.
Our whole system is in danger of irrelevance and uselessness: from the Government, through the Foreign Office, the House of Commons, the House of Lords, the police, the “welfare” (social security) system etc.

The Alastair Stewart sacking
Many on Twitter etc are defending Alastair Stewart, saying nice things about him etc, but few are pointing out that this is exactly what happens when there grows up a culture of political correctness, a culture of denunciation, a culture of “no-platforming” (i.e. suppression of freedom of expression on political, social or historical topics) etc. Few in the msm come out fighting for free speech.
Few attack the whole milieu of political correctness in which the msm now exists. Even fewer identify the principal driver of this unfreedom— the Jew-Zionist element in society, which infests both the mainstream media and, now, social media (particularly Twitter). In fact, there is a well-organized Zionist “claque” or mob of “them” on Twitter. They managed to get me expelled from Twitter in 2018 (after having pushed for it and conspired about it for about 7 years). They are the same Jews (and virtually all are Jews) that persecute satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, and the same ones that eventually had Jeremy “Jez” Turner imprisoned for mentioning Jews unflatteringly in a speech made near the Cenotaph in Whitehall.
I notice that very few are looking beyond the bare facts of the Alastair Stewart sacking to what underpins it and many less-publicized events like it.
Once you go down the road of unfreedom, you move the game to the next level…
Nigel Farage documentary
Watched a Channel 4 fly-on-wall documentary filmed during the 2019 General Election. I think that some people laughed or smirked when I blogged at that time that Nigel Farage, though a good public speaker, is not a good politician. Not long after that, Farage stabbed his candidates and his rank and file members in the back by deciding to stand down all candidates in Conservative Party-held seats, even those held (as most were) by Remain-favouring Conservatives. A monumental error.
Farage’s inexplicable —on the face of it— decision killed his party right there and then, as I blogged at the time. It showed up Brexit Party as a here today, gone tomorrow pop-up. It said to Northern voters “Brexit Party are Con stooges”. It gifted Boris-idiot and his resident lunatic, Cummings, the election. Conservative vote share scarcely increased over what it had been in 2017; Labour’s fell dramatically. A third of eligible voters did not vote.
Had Brexit Party continued campaigning in all seats (originally entered for) to polling day across the country, it might not have won a single seat, but Farage would, in honourable defeat, have retained his reputation, Brexit Party might have surged later, and most important of all, the Conservative Party would probably have failed to win a majority. Those few thousand Brexit Party votes in each constituency would have made all the difference. Also, the Brexit the UK got would eventually have been a real one, not this fake one being loaded up at present.
“The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves, no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
