Dan Hodges and the “lockdown”/shutdown
Just read this piece by faux-proletarian scribbler Dan Hodges:
In fact, I think that my recent blog remarks on the same subject have been at least as pertinent and arguably a better read, if I say so myself, but at least I am for once in agreement with Hodges, more or less, though it irritates that he probably got £5,000 for his article, while I blog for nothing, and pro bono publico.
About a “journalist”
Here we see one Faima Bakar, apparently a “journalist” at the Metro (that’s the giveaway “newspaper” usually chucked down by the hundreds onto the floor of Underground trains when they reach the end of the line), celebrating and laughing at the mounted policewoman injured in Whitehall yesterday.
I was reading some of her recent tweets. At best, semi-literate. Some kind of Punjabi from East London, it seems. Here is her response to the many tweeters who have been appalled at her attitude (and bias):
How is it that Faima Bakar can get a degree in English Literature, and then both train as and work as a journalist (the latter for two years), including time as a sub-editor, albeit at the Sun, while being apparently almost unacquainted with English grammar?
Well, there it is.
What a bitch.

It had to happen. Now that the Jewish lobby is again controlling the Labour Party, and now that Labour is more or less politically-irrelevant, the msm is no longer criticizing it. In fact, the msm loves Keir Starmer, who has a Jewish wife, and whose children are being brought up as Jewish. He does not much criticize the government in the manner of his predecessors, and those around him are all Labour Friends of Israel members.
In view of the above, it is not so surprising that Labour is now head to head with the misnamed “Conservatives”. The public has woken up to the fact that Boris-idiot is hugely out of his depth as Prime Minister, and that this Cabinet is full of complete idiots.
The problem, as always, is that the UK has a binary political system, in which two superficially opposed parties contend. When one cuckoo goes back into the clock, the other emerges from it. Labour is not doing well; the Conservatives are doing badly. However, with a general election possibly over 4 years away, Labour’s performance in both Westminster and the opinion polls is near-irrelevant.
I disagree with “lockdown” on a number of grounds, though I accept that the government should have closed (as it did, in the end) pubs, nightclubs, restaurants, race meetings and similar events, and also the Underground, bus services, train services (which it never did). Flights to the UK should have been stopped too.
I always said that eventually people would tire of the “lockdown”. What I did not fully appreciate until a month or so ago is quite how convenient “lockdown”would be for both the “chattering classes” and many of those once describable as “the working classes”.
For the truly wealthy and especially those with country houses and landed estates, there has been really no “lockdown” in terms of daily life. Nothing has changed, in the immortal words of Theresa May. For the suburban and rural chattering classes too, sipping their Chardonnay by their swimming pools, the “lockdown” has not been too hard. Many are “working from home”, which even if at the pace of “normal” work, at least saves 2-4 hours on the day via not having to commute.
Shopping via Internet has not been without difficulties, but most people in the end were served; for those actually attending supermarkets to shop, there were inconveniences but little interruption of supply once the initial panic-buying or bulk-buying wave passed.
As I have blogged previously, for many on more modest incomes, “furlough” means the same or effectively more pay for no work, no commute, no boring days at office, factory, restaurant or warehouse.
Even for the unemployed, life has been better under “lockdown”, in that the Chancellor has increased Universal Credit by £20 a week, and because the DWP has had to give up, for the duration, its unpleasant post-2010 bullying and harrying behaviours.
That means that, for many (not all), the prospect of resuming “normal” working life is not very attractive; and if there is a quasi-medical-scientific reason to delay that resumption —“second wave”, “R-rate” still high, “protecting the NHS”—so much the better. Hypocrisy not only ruling but ruling largely unrecognized.
Just watched a 15-minute short film on the nostalgia channel, Talking Pictures TV, about Petticoat Lane Market in East London, as it was in the 1950s. Quite a few obvious Jews around, but only two black men in all those crowds, and one of them was, I think, probably the racing tipster “Prince Monolulu”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Monolulu

A black mob in Bristol has dragged down a statue of the Bristol merchant and slave-trader Edward Colston https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Colston and dumped it in the harbour there:
Where were Bristol’s —and Britain’s— politicized, Common Purpose-led police while this was happening? Nowhere. They merely and blandly say now, to the msm, that “there will be an investigation”. Useless. Biased.
Are we able to “judge” Edward Colston, three centuries on? If so, put all historical figure on the scales.
OK. So who is next? My favourite would be Bomber Harris: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Arthur_Harris,_1st_Baronet
Will all statues of Roman emperors be pulled down? What about those of other ancient rulers? Alexander the Great? What about those of 18thC/19thC millowners? They treated people little better than slaves, some of them. Fortunately, most of the blacks know little of history, or we should have no statues left standing.
The English monarchs…will they be next? Charles II and Queen Anne were around at the same time as Colston. And what about Elizabeth I? Her piratical sea-captains, such as Drake, also made money out of “blackbirding”. So pull all statues of them down, too? Where does it end? With a mixed-race mob crawling over the ruins of all our cities?
More seriously, this liberty to destroy and trample on Britain’s history, given to black and multikulti mobs by the useless UK police —who in relation to white people behave like a poundland KGB— shows which side the indoctrinated police commanders are on.
I heard some useless police inspector or superintendent, “Andy”-something, on the radio news, almost exculpating the Bristol mob, and explaining why the police stood aside and let this incredible vandalism happen; apparently, it was on the basis that “it was symbolic”. I have no faith that Common Purpose bastards like that will ever protect the white people who built and still maintain this country.
This is a moment to remember, when a mob of non-European untermenschen said, to the British people, “we rule here”…
On Twitter, the usual traitors support that mob. Remember them, too.
When I was first in Moscow, in 1993, I passed several places where Soviet notables in marble and bronze had been torn down. One was Kalinin, whose massive bust in Kalininsky Prospekt (now Novy Arbat) had been ripped from its grey marble or granite plinth, leaving just the metal stalk that had previously anchored the bust to the plinth.
Tearing down of statues is something that happens during socio-political upheavals.
What I find even more infuriating is to see the “me too” Twitter mob supporting the real mob. They call white people (who have created almost everything of value in our contemporary world) “gammon”, comparing us to pigs or pig-flesh. No doubt they would object if someone called the blacks “niggers”, or the brown peoples “wogs” (etc).
Any white people using the term “gammon” for British or other white people are, quite plainly, traitors.
My concern is that, now that the rabble know that the police are pulling their punches, the canaille will be emboldened and will “push the envelope”…
ps. Here is one enemy of the British people:
Hey, I had another idea…the statue of that terrorist, Mandela…
Another, more subtle, traitor:
As I predicted long ago, unless we stop it, untermenschen will tear down our civilization and culture, and then crawl over the ruins…
Economic strategy after Coronavirus
I read that “financial genius” Rishi Sunak and Boris-idiot are both alarmed at what is already starting to happen economically. However, in the msm, the focus is still on NHS staff, hospitals, people doing all sorts of nonsense things at home.
I was just thinking about different industries. Transport, for one. Priti Useless is implementing a 14-day quarantine as of midnight for incoming passengers. That should have been done about 2 months ago, maybe 3. Now, all it does is kill off the airline industry.
As I blogged previously, it is hard to imagine either business or tourist travellers wanting to spend 2 weeks cooped up on arrival in the UK. Forget it.
So the UK government is bailing out airlines and support enterprises with loans, “furlough” monies etc, but has more or less guaranteed that the planes will fly empty, or with a handful of passengers per flight! Madness.
As for trains, the new serf-British are to travel only if appropriately muzzled (despite the fact that the virus wave has pretty much gone now, or passed on). Also, people are only to travel if (?) 3-6 feet from each other! Have any members of this shite “government” ever been on a commuter train?
Once again, vast subsidies are being paid out to privately-owned train companies to run services with few if any passengers aboard, and few fares collected. Again, just madness.
I do not think that most people have any idea what lorryloads of Scheiss are rolling down the road towards us…

For white British people, the System is no good any more. While a social-national political party probably should exist, the “Parliamentary road” to survival, power and victory is more or less closed to us. We see now the bias of the System, whether in the police, the legal and court system, the political set-up, the msm (which is riddled with traitors) etc.
We see the untermenschen and rabble launching actual genocide against us, starting with our history as expressed in books, statues etc. This genocide cannot be opposed only by tweets or by readers’ comments in msm newspapers (propaganda tracts). Sooner or later, there will be an actual race/culture war.
