Boris-idiot, the puppet posing as Prime Minister, thinks that “racism” is a problem in the UK. The real problem is the multikulti society itself, which he supports, or is willing to support (((if it is made worth his while))).
The black man who “rescued” a white man from being killed by blacks at Waterloo Station has been lauded by the msm as a “hero”. He certainly seems to have done something creditable by saving that Englishman from being beaten and kicked to death by a black mob, but one has to ask what the “rescuer” was doing there at all. He was, in the photos I have seen, wearing thin black gloves on a warm day, and he admits to being there as a “protester”. Were the blacks beating that Englishman known to him? And what were the police (who were right there too) doing? Filming? Bending the knee in sign of fealty to the mob? What?
New laws by diktat
The government of fools just made another law today, and thanks to their previous removal of even basic democratic norms, had no need to get the approval of Parliament. The result is that everyone requiring public transport or hospital services, or who has to visit any hospital, needs to wear a face covering. God, how stupid.
In fact, I see little opposition to these latest Kafka-esque “laws”. This has become a “nation” (which scarcely deserves the name) of scared rabbits. Stay at home. Be scared. Protect the (increasingly useless) NHS. Clap like Stalin-era Russian factory workers when ordered to. Etc.
I saw an opinion poll which claimed that a third of all British people are, even now, too frightened (of the Chinese virus) to leave the security of their homes! You expect a few complete cranks like the woman in the photograph below, wearing a “hazmat” suit (not to undertake biological warfare research or Ebola nursing, but to go shopping at Primark, apparently). You do not expect a third of the British people to cower in their homes, especially for no good reason.
[the tweeter deleted the tweet before I could copy the photo, sadly. That’s Britain today…the land of scared rabbits]
Note also the “2 metre social distancing”, which actually has little or no scientific justification anyway (the World Health Organization says that 1 metre —a yard, in old money— is more than enough).
The British people now are not those of the past, those mostly resilient people who are now fading into history and legend. Today’s British are almost all a mass of frightened rabbits who stand outside their houses to clap like idiots (for no other reason than to virtue-signal), and who possess neither the discipline to accomplish anything more than a tweet or a Facebook message, nor the anger necessary to resist this confused semi-dictatorship actively.
The tweet below shows the line of shoppers trying to shop at Primark in Birmingham:
Strange. Had I not been told that that is Birmingham, I would have sworn that it is Oxford Street in London (and I lived in near-Central London for many years). Very similar. I do not know Birmingham at all. Anyway, the line is long indeed. Seems that about half, maybe more, of those lining up are non-white. I suppose that reflects the demographics in that city and region.
Here is Hereford:
I have never been in a Primark shop. I am told that they sell cheap clothing. In a sense, these lines are surprising, in that anything required can be bought online (though apparently not from Primark itself), so why wait in line? It’s a mystery, like why some people stood outside their houses and clapped every week just because some idiot told them to do so.
Looking at the wider picture, I have been blogging for months about the absurdity of the “lockdown”/shutdown, its Kafka-esque “advice”, “rules” and (purported) “laws” and, of equal importance, the incredible damage that the shutdown has been doing to our society generally and to the UK economy particularly. A few msm voices (very few) also saw the situation clearly. Peter Hitchens, mainly.
Now, the view has cleared, but the msm interest is still focussed on the medical or epidemiological aspects of the Coronavirus situation rather than the damage done by the panic-stricken Government policy response.
Finally, here and there, the msm is starting to report on the train coming down the tunnel at the people of the UK.
The Coronavirus shutdown has shrunk the UK economy by 20%. That is massive. The figure for 2020 as a whole is now forecast to be a drop of 8%, which may prove to be conservative: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/jun/15/uk-economy-to-shrink-8-percent-in-2020-with-coronavirus-recovery-not-until-2023-forecasters-say
Now, there will be no sudden upsurge in demand, because much of the population has had the life scared out of it by the Government, its hopeless “scientific advisers”, and the toytown British police, assisted eagerly by the Twitter mob of me-too conformists (and others).
Primark is not the only shop open today. Far from it. It is however the only one with such lines, presumably because the others sell online. A straw in the wind for the retail sector. Online sales are now where the action is, and the outlook for the “High Street” retail sector, based in actual shops, is bleak.
Companies are already collapsing, and huge numbers of companies are going to be shedding staff once the State stops the “furlough” programme (i.e. stops subsidizing notional employment). How many will be chucked onto the scrapheap (aka “Universal Credit”, aka “the dole”) is a matter for speculation. Figures as high as ten million have been mentioned.
This must have political consequences. The question, though, is what consequences. Outside Scotland and maybe Northern Ireland, the UK political system is basically binary. One cuckoo goes into the clock and the other comes out. That is how it works on the surface, but under the surface there are currents of lava moving.
Most people in the msm, and/or on Twitter, are still mentally locked into the LibLabCon (mainly Con/Lab) idea:
Why is that tweeter not seeing clearly? The former “Red Wall” of (former) Labour voters did not vote Conservative in 2019! No, most of them did not; what they did was not vote Labour.
The above graphic tells the story brilliantly. For every 9 former (2017) Labour voters who did not vote Labour in 2019, only 2 actually switched to the Conservative Party; 2 also switched to vote LibDem; 1 voted Brexit Party, but 4 did not vote at all.
In other words, the mass media narrative that voters in the “Red Wall” constituencies were so sick of Labour that they gave the Conservatives a chance to prove themselves is flawed. Flawed firstly because Nigel Farage stabbed his candidates, activists, supporters and would-be voters in the back by standing down all his candidates in Conservative-held seats.
Yes, the Red Wall was composed of Labour-held seats, but once Farage killed his own party nationally, there was little incentive for voters in those Labour-held areas to vote Brexit Party even as a protest vote. Instead, many voted Conservative Party as “the only way to get Brexit”, a theme constantly reiterated by Boris Johnson during the campaign.
Other former Labour voters voted LibDem as a protest, mainly as a pro-EU, Remain, protest.
The nearly half of Labour voters who just stayed home are key. Some hated Corbyn (often because the Jewish lobby had been attacking him for 4 years in the msm). Others could just not stomach ridiculous blacks like Diane Abbott, Dawn Butler, Kate Osamor etc as probable Cabinet ministers. A large number, in my view, simply wanted a real political alternative, and did not find one.
There is a space here for a real social-national party or movement, especially when you see that a third of all eligible voters did not even vote in the 2019 General Election.
The article is worth reading: https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/the-red-wall-overwhelmingly-opposes-a-no-deal-brexit
I agree with this: “...their behavior in government is making previously loyal supporters at last wonder if they know what they are doing” [The Spectator].
Incidentally, The Spectator needs a better sub-editor: “behaviour” is spelled thus, not “behavior“, which is the American spelling.
As to this: ” 70 per cent of Red Wall voters said they wanted to work with Europe, whereas only 20 per cent said America should be the UK’s main partner“, “Europe” yes, “EU” not or maybe not. Naturally, British/English people (I mean real British/English people, white people) want to work with fellow-Europeans, not Jew-ruled America, but that does not mean that they want back in the EU.
“A poll given to The Spectator today by the Best for Britain think tank shows the gap between ‘Red Wall’ voters and the Tory elite in London is dizzyingly wide. It reports overwhelming opposition to a no-deal Brexit in the seats that put Johnson in Downing Street. As striking is the widespread concern about living standards and equally valid worries about the Conservatives tying Britain to the Trump administration.” [The Spectator] [my emphasis]
“Q: Was Churchill ‘racist’?“
A: “I have heard some people say he is racist…others say he is a hero…I’ve not personally met him.” [Channel 4 interviewee, some dim “Black Lives Matter” black or half-caste woman, who should obviously be at home cooking plantains and not trying to sound as if she knows her arse from her elbow on national TV…]
Still, wake up, Labour Party! There is a potential successor to Diane Abbott!
As tweeters say, LMAO!
Late evening music
Beautiful music and beautiful architecture, two aspects of our European heritage.
To be defended to the bitter end…
