An interesting tweet by one Ed West, but why am I still surprised that a “deputy editor” and published author is apparently unaware that “motherlode” (also “mother lode”) is not spelled “motherload”? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_lode

I suppose that I should now be used to the ever-sliding standards in this country…

Looked the tweeter up on Wikipedia out of mere vulgar curiosity: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_West_(journalist) and it turns out that he is the son of the once well-known foreign correspondent Richard West https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_West_(journalist) and the Irish columnist Mary Kenny https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Kenny.

I always wondered where Private Eye magazine got that term, “discussing Uganda“… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Kenny#%22Ugandan_discussions%22

If there ever was a pointless contest!…

True, I have been writing off the LibDems since the betrayals of 2010, but the trajectory remains downward.

Humpty-Dumpty LibDem was broken in 2010. Votes and seats slid in 2015 and then 2017 (though number of seats increased from 8 to 12 in 2017), though there was an upturn in 2019: over 3.5 million votes (an upturn of over 50%) but a decline in number of seats (from 12 to 11) thanks to the way the FPTP system and the boundaries of seats work in Britain (cf. 2017).

Looking into it a little more, it can be seen that the LibDems benefited a little from being the only 100% Remain party. Next time? I still think that the LibDems will be wiped out. Few of their MPs have a strong local following to set against the party-label vote swings. Also, what is the standout profile of the LibDems now? They have no real identity, it seems to me.

Surprisingly, the LibDem membership numbers are not unhealthy: over 120,000, it seems, which is in the same ballpark as the Conservative Party. However, that alone does not bring electoral success (cf. Labour, with perhaps 600,000 members).

I should expect the LibDems to decline further and perhaps to disappear, at least as an independent party.

Well, there it is. The print newspapers are mortally ill and maybe on their last legs. These screeds of rubbish have been declining in quality as long as I can remember. In the 1970s, the quality level was better by far. The old Daily Telegraph magazine, published on Fridays, contained serious reportage and interesting feature journalism: see

https://www.littlereddog.info/vintage-1970s-daily-telegraph-magazines-for-sale.html

Look at the Telegraph itself now! Uncritical Boris Johnson “Conservative” propaganda, and at an excruciatingly low intellectual level. Ironically, though, it was the Telegraph, in the 2005-2010 Parliament, that broke the MP expenses scandal, one of the most serious stories of the past half-century. It does say something about the UK’s “free Press”, though, that MP expenses were an open secret for years, certainly since 1997 and the corruption Blair brought into UK politics, yet were not investigated until the Telegraph decided to take it all seriously and to print.

In the 1970s, even some of the less-serious or less intellectual newspapers, such as the Sunday Express, sometimes contained interesting first-person accounts and so on.

Look at, say, The Times now! Pathetic and shallow “Conservative” and Zionist propaganda. As for the Sunday Times magazine, more or less what used to be called a “woman’s magazine“, full of ads and with little substance in its content.

I welcome the demise of the print newspapers and their fundamentally Zionist-contaminated agenda.

CSrYbsNU8AATLhJ

Completely infested.

They even decided to print one-sided stories about me back in late 2016! (Google “Ian Millard barrister” to see some).

True, those newspapers all have an online presence now, but the Times and most of the Telegraph are behind a paywall and, like the others, have to compete for public attention with other sources of news, some of which are, mirabile dictu, not so (((infested and contaminated))).

Where I deviate from Hitchens in respect of the above is that the number of “lives blighted” should be at least 36,000, maybe as high as 90,000. Why? Most employees laid off have wives (or husbands), children too. Then there is the knock-on effect on the local retail sector as local purchasing power diminishes. Also, redundancies in the supply chain.

Not exactly surprising. There has been a Jewish coup in Labour, one over 4-5 years. Starmer is its figurehead. He is not a Jew, but is married to a Jewish woman (a lawyer) and their children are being brought up as Jewish…

I thought that the Jewish Chronicle had gone up the chimney. Seems not.

Alison Chabloz

I happened to see this rather inaccurate report about the Alison Chabloz case, which was heard two years ago:

https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0022018318792937?journalCode=clja

Despite being in the august pages of the Criminal Law Journal, the report, penned by one Laura Bliss of Edge Hill University in Lancashire [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edge_Hill_University] misdescribes (?) Alison Chabloz as “a holocaust revolutionist“! Well, if the cap fits, though “revisionist” was probably the term used in court. Ms. Bliss also mispells Elie Wiesel’s name as “Wiezel”. How about “weasel”?

Sadly, most of the report is behind a paywall.

Below: looks as though someone has woken up, at least…

My feelings exactly: Boris Johnson, Boris-idiot, completely out of his depth as Prime Minister, a part-Jew public entertainer, is turning the UK into a banana republic. It was already on the way there, but that idiot has made it official

Still, so what if he bunged one of his not-very-interesting-looking girlfriends a hundred grand or so out of public funds? Worse things happen in black Africa…oh, wait…

Seems that only 12% of people have really thought this through, while 47% are a panic-stricken mob.

Look at the graph below. Look at “actual impact”…

Nigel Farage

A complete busted flush. The man has the gall to continue whining about illegal migration (migration-invasion) to the UK, while having stabbed in the back his own party (parties, really, meaning both UKIP and Brexit Party) because he wanted to enable the victory of the misnamed “Conservative” Party, and (of as much importance for someone who is plainly another doormat for the Jewish lobby) the defeat of Corbyn’s Labour Party.

Of course, what he says about the invasion is true, but he carries no weight. It is partly because of his electoral manipulation that the present government has a large majority; thus a thick-as-two-short planks Ugandan Indian, Priti Patel, now sits, uselessly, as Home Secretary, doing nothing to stem the invasion (of which she herself and her parents were part, albeit in the wider sense).

and see here (below) a metropolis-based newspaper drone (columnist, deputy editor), one Sarah Baxter, laughing at concerns around the migration-invasion. Well, why should she worry? £500,000 a year (at a guess)? Large house or penthouse? Good neighbourhood(s)? Second home in the country?

Yes, he is right. Trust in the mass media, especially the BBC, is at rockbottom:

This is an organized and/or facilitated invasion of this country, an invasion by persons who have no connection with Britain, and who will be millstones round the neck of the people.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi

Anyone who supports the invasion in any way is treacherous.

This is, to be rather topical, like a foreign element entering an organism, breeding fast, and eventually killing the host.

Had to emerge from my cave to complete my appointed rounds. On the return journey, my less than contented mood was made worse as I went through a more or less suburban area, only to see some rabbits waiting at the end of their short drives or standing in gardens, about to participate in the State-promoted and socially-mandated “clapathon”. Not many, about one house out of about 20, I would say. Mostly very elderly, though there were a few odd children too. The sight of all the rabbits standing waiting, like robots, or serfs populating Potemkin villages, irritated me even more than it usually would.

  1. Peter Hitchens is yet another libertarian ‘Tory’ moron who thinks that jobs and money are more important than people’s lives. Peter is an idiot. Jobs are bring lost BUT but with some time and yes a little difficulty they CAN be replaced. Once your very much loved grandmother, grandfather, uncle, aunt, mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister, wife, husband is dead there is no going back from that.

    Like many Tories, I find him utterly callous and unfeeling. I wonder how the Tories managed to earn the title the ‘nasty party’?🙄🙄🙄

    1. I hear what you say, M’Lord of Essex, but Hitchens denies that he *is* “libertarian”. Needless to say, I am not “libertarian”, though that is not to say that I reject all concept of human rights or civil rights.

      As for deaths, there is mounting evidence of the huge but almost invisible death toll caused *by* the “lockdown”. There are many aspects to that.

      In the end, as I have said previously, the “lockdown” *cannot* be maintained indefinitely without there being a collapse of both the economy and the currency. Easy to say that that can be dealt with, harder to actually get back once a country is in such a situation.

  2. This Coronavirus outbreak has exposed libertarians for the callous and unfeeling monsters they so often are and the utter stupidity, unrealistic and impracticable nature of their (mainly Jewish in origin it has to be said) political ideology.

    About the only real area it has any credibility in is in the field of most LGBT rights but that can be covered by normal British liberalism rather than this alien, imported Yankee creed.

  3. Libertarianism goes against the grain of human nature just as much as communism does, The most successful countries in the world both economically and socially ie Japan and South Korea do NOT follow this stupid American Jewish philosophy.

    Japan explicitly rejected economic libertarianism ie Thatcherism and used quite substantial economic interventionism and economic nationalism to build itself up from being a nuclear bombed total wreck in 1945 to being an economic superpower.

  4. The Liberal Democrats won’t disappear entirely. They fill a niche in politics as the biggest party concerned with the environment, electoral and constitutional reform etc. They will still get a protest vote element as well. What they need is a series of by-election victories in Tory held seats such as occurred in the early 1970’s when they won seats like Sutton and Cheam, Berwick Upon Tweed. That helped them to win new credibility and set them up nicely to do well in the February 1974 general election. The postwar Liberal revival really dates from that point onwards.

    Their problem is that it might not be so easy to do that now and also the fact that by-elections don’t happen much nowadays.

  5. The electoral after effects of those by election victories and the two elections of 1974 carried on until 2015. Now they haven’t got the Europe issue as the major pro-EU party but did being that really boost their support or actually detract from it? I am inclined to believe that their very pro-EU stance deterred more people from voting for them than it attracted.

    Labour’s choice of Keir Starmer has probably harmed them a bit but he is as dull as ditchwater, has seemingly no real new agenda for the country and might well be dumped before the next election.

  6. I don’t think Keir Starmer is going to do well. Whilst he does have more credibility as a potential PM than the other Labour leadership candidates had, reheated Blairism with even more added PC liberal globalism is not what people, in the main, are looking for.

    He has about two years to demonstrate he is going to bring substantial new support to Labour before his backbenchers and party members will get jittery and consider dumping him.

      3. Quite so, M’Lord of Essex.

  7. So you now get suspended from Labour for making the perfectly reasonable point that Keir Starmer got money for his leadership campaign from Zionist extremist/Pro-Israel sources!

    That says it all! Why would any British gentile want to vote for a party that is all for Israeli persecution of Palestinians, supports nationalism for Jews in the Zionist state but has a problem with British gentiles showing similar feelings of national ethic identification, self-assertiveness aka ‘racism’?

  8. Why doesn’t Starmer just go the whole hog and rename the British Labour Party the Israeli Labour Party instead?

    Labour really offer very little, if anything, for Britons so why should we vote for them? What is the Labour Party actually FOR? Being in favour of complete open borders permanently is not going to cut it and you don’t have to be a Muslim in this country to object to a foreign policy stance that is very pro-Israel and one which is liable to get us involved in more needless wars in the Middle East like in Iraq.

    At least Jeremy Corbyn had the sense to oppose that disastrous bloodlust of BLIAR.

    1. M’Lord of Essex, Labour’s only strategy now is to say “we are not the Conservative Party (and not “extremists”) and so vote for us if you tire of Boris-idiot”. It might work up to a point, but not enough to win many voters over.

      2. I would rather the Liberal Democrat Party found electoral success than Labour. Yes, they are globalist open borders enthusiasts as well just like the misnamed Conservative Party is but, in contrast to Labour even with the supposed ‘moderate’ Keir Starmer at the helm, the Liberal Democrats are a democratic party thus they believe in dumping the seriously undemocratic rubbish of First Past The Post and changing it to a system of Proportional Representation which would have an utterly transformative effect upon British politics. and enable small parties with new political philosophies a chance to win seats.

  9. With the Zionist Pro Israel Blairite Keir Starmer as Labour leader, muslims might be so inclined to vote for them. Many object to a too strong pro-Israel foreign policy and one that is too dismissive of the rights of Palestinians.

  21. We need to replace the NHS with a public/private system whereby the wealthy pay for their treatment whilst the poor do not.

    Universal health provision needs to be maintained but in a different way to the NHS. In Germany I believe they have a sliding scale so the rich pay for the full cost of treatment, the moderately wealthy pay some whilst the poor pay nothing.
