“Lockdown”, shutdown, facemask, quarantine NONSENSE

JANET STREET-PORTER: When did the policy of ‘flattening the curve’ so the NHS would not be overwhelmed turn into ruining our lives and wrecking the economy so nobody catches Covid, ever?

At the start of the pandemic, we willingly agreed to a strict lockdown to ‘flatten the curve’ to contain the virus and reduce stop the NHS being overwhelmed at any one point in time until either the disease burned itself out or we found a cure or a vaccine. I can still see the chart they showed us.

The effect on the economy was catastrophic, but the infection rate dropped, the NHS coped brilliantly, the Nightingale hospitals were eventually mothballed and then we were told it was safe to go back to work.

From the moment pubs and factories were allowed to re-open, the infection rate was always going to rise.

Somehow our ambition has morphed from from ‘containing’ the virus to ‘eliminating’ it.

This talk of a ‘second wave’ is nonsense. Many experts say that the virus is just one wave of infection that rises and falls, like other viruses.

Sweden, which has never locked down, is now seeing its daily cases number drop like a stone.

We simply won’t be able to eliminate Covid and have lives and a functioning economy so we’d better learn to live with it. Right now the economy is in tatters and the public still feel anxious and cautious.

Millions more will be laid off as consumption slumps and Brexit remains in chaos without trade deals to protect business. The high street is going bust, and thousands of office buildings will remain empty.” [Daily Mail]

Probably the first time that I have agreed with Janet Street-Porter.

One of the many absurd aspects of present Government policy, if its wild swings of “advice”, “law” and executive action can be dignified by the term “policy”, is that measures are being taken to quarantine arrivals from Spain, Luxembourg etc at a time when the UK is now as much, and probably more, “infected” than those other states (which, incidentally, and like the UK, also had strict “lockdowns”).

The Jewish-Zionist censorship of social media continues

David Duke https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Duke has been “suspended” (expelled) from Twitter, despite his worldwide profile, despite having over 53,000 Twitter followers, despite having come close to getting elected Governor of Louisiana in 1991 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991_Louisiana_gubernatorial_election etc.

The Jews are crowing about it, of course. They have laughed before in this world, only to cry later.

Ha ha! That (((one))) calls himself “Darcy”! A fine old Norman name…

I remember meeting David Duke briefly at a social event in London in (not quite sure) 1976, or 1977. Probably 1977. A pleasant enough person.

Now, like me and many others, Duke is expelled from Twitter, which is a far more boring online “place” than it was say 5 years ago.

(((They))) have killed Twitter, pretty much.

Tweets seen so far today

and Little Matt Hancock has placed large areas of the North of England into prison “lockdown” not because large numbers of (or any) people are dying, nor even because the “rise in cases” means anything much (because most “cases” are mild or very mild, require no intervention etc), but simply to punish the resident population for ignoring the Kafka-esque “advice” given by the bunch of clowns in Downing Street.

My foray to Waitrose today

Went to Waitrose early to avoid heat and excessive numbers of shoppers. Sadly, every (mostly elderly/retired) person in the nearby little town had the same idea, it seemed.

Almost every rabbit there was wearing a facemask or muzzle before even entering the store! Quite a number of shoppers this morning. Britain may be unable to elect politicians who are not clowns, it may not be able to secure its borders or organize most things effectively, but boy! can we form queues!

One incident amused me. An old bird, wrinkled and suntanned (maybe an avid gardener) carefully standing 10 feet back as I trundled my shopping trolley towards the queue; then the same person gets in line and, without mask, starts talking at a distance of about 2 feet with the woman next to her!

On the drive back from Waitrose, a sight perhaps characteristic of Britain’s present madness: a semi-rural bus-stop, with a wooden bench there. On the bench, a young woman, next to her a baby in a push-chair, and the young woman, totally alone except for the baby, was wearing a facemask!

Incidentally, if anyone wonders why I did not offer the young woman a lift, I was not going far and would be turning off the main road, so would have not been able to take her far. Also, it would have been a waste of time: 20+ years of experience of occasionally offering lifts to people seen waiting or walking in more rural areas is that, as with “Coronavirus”, women (of any age) are scared out of their skins by what they have read of abductors, “serial killers” etc.

It’s funny. Many will say that “the young” are the ones most compliant with the “rules” (not law) and “laws” (possibly invalid) around “lockdown” (shutdown) and facemasks. I am not so sure.

In my area of coastal and near-coastal Hampshire, the population is largely composed of persons over 65 (though officially less than half, apparently; maybe Waitrose attracts a generally older crowd). I dare say that persons over 50 comprise almost the entire population of the area.

Whatever the statistics say about the above, my firm impression is that it is the older-age population, persons in their 70s, 80s, who are likely to wear facemasks even outside and even when alone (why?), and who are the most compliant with the lining up 6+ feet apart etc. Again, why? If they “need” shopping and are afraid of “the virus”, they could always order whatever they want online, after all.

A couple of rounds, maybe just one, should deal with it.

Please refer to my last comment (above).

Boris-idiot

Boris Johnson’s call for police to enforce the mandatory wearing of masks in indoor areas was today branded ‘bonkers’ by officers.

He said: ‘They want us to enforce the new rules in these other places now, but next door there might be a pub or a restaurant where people don’t have to wear a mask. 

‘It doesn’t make any sense, it’s absolutely bonkers.” [Daily Mail] https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8580467/Boris-Johnson-extends-face-covering-law-vows-greater-police-presence.html

Well, I agree, but people surely knew what kind of dishonest and incompetent clown Boris-idiot was and is before he was “elected” (albeit by a totally corrupt half-mad political system).

At least I myself am not likely to have to talk to the (traffic) police any time soon, my old car having, by some miracle, passed its MOT test yesterday (once half a dozen faults, some deemed “dangerous”, had been rectified).

Evening tweets seen

Those freedoms and civil rights have all either gone or been whittled down to the bare minimum.

Of course, the Jews control mainstream publishing in USA, UK, in fact most of the “West” generally. I recall seeing a feature in, I think, the Daily Telegraph magazine, when it was worth reading, around 1973 or so (published on Fridays then), which feature was all about the cabal of Jewish leading figures of the publishing world as it was in London at the time.

That feature did not actually use the word “Jew”, but some other word in substitutium; maybe “North London”. Even back then, the Jewish lobby later made a fuss about that group of about 10 publishers having been identified, even impliedly, as Jewish.

I recall the name of only one of the Jews featured in that piece: Tom Maschler, who is described in his Wikipedia entry as “a British publisher” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Maschler

Diary Blog, 30 July 2020

When I first had a Twitter account, a decade ago, I began to tweet, inter alia, about the need for a wildlife grid in the UK. I meant a grid of strips or parcels of land, even if very narrow in places, that would link larger areas full of wildlife, such as woods, forests, national parks etc.

That idea is even more important today. I am heartened that, since I started to tweet and, later, blog about it, others have taken up the idea; some are well-connected, wealthy, famous. I think that, eventually, something can be done.

My concept was not nationalization of those strips of land, but a voluntary co-operation, co-ordinated for the sake of convenience and efficiency, but the ownership remaining, in most cases, in private hands, at least initially.

The area where I spent much of my childhood, the border of South Oxfordshire and Berkshire, near Reading, as now seen on Google Earth, exhibits the kind of changes that are all too common: high hedges replaced, usually by sterile fencing, some gardens in front of houses turned into gravelled or even concrete car parking. Sad. Why do people spend what is now the best part of a million pounds on a house in a leafy area, where suburb meets country, only to aesthetically trash their own house and gardens? Just to save a little inconvenience trimming the hedges? To save the cost of hiring a man to trim the hedges? It’s so tawdry…

A few blog posts around the subject:

A wildlife grid is probably the most important single measure that can and should be taken to help the survival of wildlife in the UK.

Tweets on other matters seen so far today

In 1976, as an occasional (19 years old) reader of the anarchist newspaper Black Flag, I saw an article by someone saying that the State wanted to track and trace everyone, “because the human insect must be controlled at all times“. It seemed far-fetched to me at the time, but it stuck in the mind. Now look! A technologically-updated version is today’s news on the BBC!

I suppose that that sort of thing happens more often than we suppose. Around the same time, I read in an American journal, the name of which escapes me, that before too long the U.S. Marines would be deployed to help Israel in the Eastern Mediterranean. They even had a parody version of the U.S. Marines Hymn, replacing “From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli” with “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tel Aviv.”

I thought that unlikely, but a few short years later both versions turned out to be correct, the first almost literally, though the “Tripoli” in the Hymn is the one in North Africa, not the one in Lebanon; the second, about Tel Aviv, only in effect:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Derna_(1805) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marines%27_Hymn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tripoli https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tripoli,_Lebanon https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multinational_Force_in_Lebanon

Argos

I see that Argos is stopping publication of its catalogue after nearly 50 years. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/jul/30/argos-to-stop-printing-catalogue-after-almost-50-years

That news led me to muse on human nature. Argos was started in 1972 by Richard Tompkins, the man who brought Green Shield stamps to Britain in 1958 (he copied the idea from stamps already in use in the USA) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Tompkins https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Shield_Stamps https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argos_(retailer).

Green Shield stamps are of course unknown to anyone under about 35, having been withdrawn in 1991 and having been in the doldrums for years (their heyday was really the late 1960s and early 1970s). What I find interesting is something peripheral to them and Argos.

When Tompkins, then a fairly famous fellow in the UK, founded Argos in 1972, the conventional wisdom of the “experts”(newspaper business pundits etc) was that Tompkins was a bit of a maverick or even loony, not a serious businessman, and who had bitten off more than he could chew. Argos would probably fail fairly quickly. I recall those judgments from when I myself was at school.

Well, that was over 48 years ago. Argos was sold by its founder in 1979 to BAT; the last time it changed hands, a few years ago, the price tag was £1.4 billion…

There are always those who are ready to criticize those others who are willing to break new ground. Another similar time was in the 1980s, when Rupert Murdoch moved into satellite TV broadcasting. I recall someone then looking at the Daily Telegraph business pages and saying that “everyone” says that this would break Murdoch. Well, it nearly did, but he persevered, and now look! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sky_Television_(1984%E2%80%931990) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sky_UK

Beware the “experts”, who often know a lot but, equally, are often wrong in the end. Like fire, a good servant but a bad master.

A few Twitter accounts seemingly worth following

https://twitter.com/MitfordUv

Reminiscent of the Serbsky Institute in the old Soviet Union: dissidence classified as mental illness. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbsky_Center

Interesting. I think that we all know that, in the end, these evils will not be fought and exterminated by debate, tweets, whatever. The enemy have taken away the right of the true European people to tweet, post on YouTube, publish books offline, sell books online via Amazon and elsewhere, post opinions online even on dedicated websites, let alone make public speeches or stand for election anywhere.

The whole “democratic” and “free speech” world is being closed off to social nationalism and even to ordinary conservative nationalism. That leaves only a few alternatives in the emerging culture war.

A pretty good short film.

Regular readers of my blog will know that I am sceptical of the value of privately-held firearms as a guarantor of liberty. Not that I am “anti” weapon or anti-gun, as such.

I was once a member of a gun club, the now more or less defunct Kensington Rifle and Pistol Club, founded in the Victorian era (I believe). I was a member from 1976 to about 1985. I used only pistols there, usually the Browning Hi-Power: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Browning_Hi-Power

I have also, though again long ago (1970s, 1980s), handled and/or used other weapons, but mainly overseas, and including some automatic weapons such as, in Africa, the R-1 automatic/semi-automatic rifle (there was a switch on the side— Safe, Semi-Automatic fire, Full Automatic fire).

I have also some (limited) experience of shotgun use, mainly in Wales and Ireland in the 1980s and 1990s (incidentally, not shooting birds or animals; I disapprove fairly strongly of that kind of “sport”).

I mention all the above in case some, perhaps American, readers of this blog imagine that I am —what they may think of as— a typical European anti-gun person. No. However, the idea that weapons of that sort preserve liberty or one’s political freedom is just not so.

David ben Gurion said, in the 1940s, to one of the Jewish terrorist leaders (I think Shamir, a member of the Stern Gang —aka Lehi— and later a Prime Minister of Israel), “do you imagine that you can create a state with pistols?“.

I presume that ben Gurion meant “with pistols only“…Still, the point is valid.

The NSDAP was not primarily an armed body in the Germany of the 1920s and early 1930s. That despite the fact that most NSDAP activists had fought in the First World War and/or in the postwar Freikorps.

In the UK, the question scarcely arises. Tony Blair effectively disarmed the —almost entirely peaceful— recreational pistol and rifle sportsmen in 1997.

Incidentally, we may as well note that in the whole history of the UK, there have been only three gun massacres: Hungerford 1987, Dunblane 1996, and Cumbria 2010. I suppose that some would add to that the Raoul Moat affair of 2010, though Moat actually killed “only” one person (and nearly killed two others).

So the UK has suffered only three or four massacres or rampages in hundreds of years, of which two happened after the gun clubs and their members were disarmed in the late 1990s! Of those latter two incidents, one (the 2010 Cumbria massacre) was committed using legally-held long weapons (a small-calibre rifle, and shotguns); the other (the Raoul Moat matter, also in 2010) involved the use of weapons not lawfully held.

Reverting to the USA, many Americans (probably the majority) hold some form of firearm; many have several, some have dozens or even hundreds. Hundreds of millions of firearms, yet not so many incidents when the numbers are taken into account.

In relation to “preservation of liberty”, the American obsession with “the right to bear arms” is more theoretical than real. One has to ask, under what circumstances would Americans take up arms (meaning actually use arms) against the Federal Government or even, say, against the “antifa” mobs or those behind them? There have been few signs of either so far.

For me, the “gun-owning patriots” (or whatever) of the USA are people who are, so to speak, “all dressed up with nowhere to go”. At least so far…

Very true. When I last saw (and read) a copy of Private Eye, some years ago, its former, long ago, bite was absent. It is now, appropriately enough in view of its 1960s origins, akin to the “Norwegian Blue Parrot…nailed to its perch”… (come to think of it, that description might apply to many aspects of life in the UK of 2020, among which the Monarchy, Parliamentary “democracy”, the Press, the Bar, the Church of England, to name but a few).

As Peter Hitchens says, Private Eye is now lame, because it has to pull its punches so as not to offend Jews, Muslims, “woke” “celebrities” etc. The old Soviet “humour” magazine, Krokodil, no doubt known to Peter Hitchens (a former correspondent in Moscow), suffered from the same or anyway a similar problem. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krokodil

Corbyn libel case

I notice that Jeremy Corbyn’s legal defence fund is now standing around £318,000 at time and date of writing. The rate of increase has slowed. At one time, a couple of daysago, about £40 a minute was being donated; now, perhaps £2 a minute. https://uk.gofundme.com/f/47gyy-jeremy039s-legal-fund

It seems that the main, perhaps only, solicitor involved on the other side is the unpleasant Jew-Zionist fanatic Mark Lewis, now a resident of Eilat, Israel, and about whom I have blogged quite extensively in the past, mostly in 2018 and 2019. My exposures of this fake can be found readily enough by searching these pages, or via Google.

A Mail audit of big companies found many are not planning for the majority of workers to return to offices until at least towards the end of the year.

Add to that the ludicrous facemask imposition and you can probably say goodbye to the “High Street”: shops, naturally, and many nearby businesses, such as restaurants and pubs. City centre hotels too, quite likely.

Went into the city yesterday for a nice pub lunch. Caught the ‘rush hour’ train which is now 3 carriages smaller. Normally by the next stop it is standing room only but by destination the train was approx 2 thirds empty. At the rural stops mask wearing obedience was about 50/50. The city suburbs sheep all obeyed. At the pub the doorman turned the virus away and we could enjoy a socially close and mask free meal.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/reader-comments/p/comment/link/574757949

Work hours

According to Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) data, people in Germany actually have the shortest working hours compared with all OECD member countries. However, it also has one of the highest productivity levels and employees are 27% more productive than UK staff that work more hours per year.” [news report]

Worth thinking about. Long hours and high productivity are two different things.

Musical interlude

Tommy Robinson

News today that the political activist known as Tommy Robinson has decided to relocate to Spain. The reasons seem unclear, though Twitter is suggesting that his home and family were targeted in an arson attack.

I would have thought that the answer to a security problem would have been to increase security, at the same time seeking out those likely to be a threat, rather than running away to Spain. Still, there it is.

I have blogged in the past about Robinson, both in terms of free speech online and in terms of the attacks on his family, including the one he said was orchestrated by “antifa” cheerleaders such as Mike Stuchbery, who himself fled the UK and now lives in Stuttgart, Germany.

Ideologically, I do not have much in common with Robinson except in that he opposes migration-invasion, as do I. Robinson, like the “alt-Right” wastes of space (“Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad” etc) and Katie Hopkins, frequently professes his love for Israel and Jews. That means, in the language of Dragon’s Den, “I’m out”.

Tweets noticed today

Nick Ferrari has a point, in general, but failed to address (at least in the clip) the fact that the Government of Boris-idiot has needlessly scared the population out of its skin, and has continued to do so, most recently by mandating these ludicrous facemask muzzles, making people wear them in supermarkets etc. That is one reason why people prefer to “work” from home.

Some people, in some industries, will be as productive at home as they are in “the office”, but most are not. One can see, though, why many prefer to work from home, especially if they live in pleasant detached houses in leafy suburbs, or in the country. No commute, no travel at all probably, no expense thereof. Wear what you want. Swim in your pool, if any. Watch old films. Keep nuisances, such as anyone above you in the office hierarchy, out of your hair and at a distance.

The facemask nonsense, even though it is not mandated at work in offices etc, does apply on public transport. Another disincentive to resume “normal” activity.

The fact is that this incompetent bunch of clowns under Boris-idiot has collapsed the economy both by mandating “lockdown” (shutdown) and by now trying to make people wear facemasks almost everywhere. Ludicrous. Toytown police state nonsense.

To my mind, it is clear that though Nick Ferrari is very out of date in his thinking, he does have a point about some people who are currently working from home. At the same time, it is clear that the economy around the office world of London and elsewhere —the offline retail sector based in “High Street” shops, among others— is probably not going to recover.

Of course, not every type of work can be done on a computer at home. Indeed, the most useful work cannot be so done at the present time: power plants, sewage and water works, most healthcare, road repairs, manufacturing, agriculture and horticulture. It may be different in a near-future world of robots and AI, but not just yet.

It is very typical of Twitter that the Twitterati imagine that almost everyone can work from home (they also favour mass immigration, and love facemasks, and the EU…etc).

The big political, as well as economic, hit out of this virus scare will come somewhere down the line, in 2021 and maybe 2022.

Indeed. You can add to the comments of Peter Hitchens and one Joanne Dean, above, that such non-laws are obeyed by the British people precisely because most British people are unthinking rabbits. Last week, it was OK and normal to shop without a facemask muzzle, and safe to do so. This week, it is in fact still safe to do so, but because a totally incompetent government has decreed that facemasks must be worn, all the rabbits are wearing one, and noting who is not wearing one.

Pathetic the way “the War” is still in the forefront of debate in the UK, though usually ignorantly. 75 years since it ended. Pathetic.

Lord Sumption: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8567721/Ex-Supreme-Court-judge-Lord-Jonathan-Sumption-says-Britain-learn-live-alongside-coronavirus.html

Lord Jonathan, who is also a medieval historian, praised Sweden’s approach to the pandemic, after the nation bucked the global trend and opted against a lockdown.”

“Official figures show Sweden has suffered 564.4 coronavirus deaths for every million people. In comparison, the rate in the UK is 674.06.

“‘Their hospitals were never overwhelmed. They never closed their schools. The predicted damage to their economy is about half of ours.’

Writing that ‘we cannot keep running away’, he added: ‘Our ancestors lived with far worse epidemic diseases without rushing to put their heads in a bag.”

Lord Sumption added the report noted aggressive isolation policies ‘merely push all transmission to the period after they are lifted’. “

This has been seen in countries which have recently lifted lockdowns, with a spike in cases seen in nations such as Spain, Germany, Japan and Hong Kong.”

He added that intensive care units seemed to catch up with capacity within a month so the Government’s decision to lift lockdown in June was ‘six to eight weeks after it had lost any justification even by its own logic‘.”

Just one “small” news story, one that did not get much reported in the national Press or on TV news…

Niels de Vos, chair of the trust, said: “Since April a large proportion of our staff have been furloughed and with this scheme coming to an end, we sadly can’t save everyone’s jobs. Only when visitor numbers and spend return to pre-coronavirus levels will our business model break even again.”

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-53533628

Visitor numbers will never return to pre-panic levels while those visitors are forced to wear facemasks. Forget it.

I wonder how many other “small” stories, unreported stories, there are right now, stories about 100, 200 or however many people losing their jobs, unable soon to pay rents, make mortgage payments etc… and mainly because of the present government’s panicked reaction to the “Coronavirus.

Facemask police state news

10 deaths (from or with “the virus”) out of 65 to 70 MILLION people…

The BBC has just reported that about 16 million people worldwide are thought to have been infected with (almost all not died with) Coronavirus since the scare started. That is about 1 person out of every 500. Not died from or with; been infected with. The death rate overall (which has varied wildly from country to country) seems to be around 2% of those infected. So, on that basis, 1 person out of every 25,000 people in the world has died with (partly from?) “the virus”, so far.

Boris-idiot (that clown presently posing as Prime Minister of the UK) has just announced more stupid policies and proposed laws. For one thing, he and his ministers have imposed a quarantine on visitors from Spain (and that includes returning Brit holidaymakers). Result? Apart from misery and inconvenience for those presently there on holiday or booked to go there, the likely collapse of the package holiday and airline industries.

I have to say that I find it odd that anyone actually wants to holiday in Spain at present. The “lockdown” and facemask nonsense has been far stricter in Spain than in the UK (which makes one wonder why Spain has had a “surge” in cases anyway, in view of the months of facemask muzzle-wearing and strict “lockdown”…We are told that such measures prevent such surges…).

I hear that in Spain, at present, a visit to a restaurant means wearing a facemask even at the table unless actually eating! I view the whole idea as somewhere between Monty Python and the Twilight Zone. Suffice to say that I shall not be going to Spain or anywhere else under such conditions. I doubt that I am alone in this. Then quarantine for 2 weeks on return? Forget it.

Who now will book a holiday or trip anywhere? The crowd of clowns posing as a government in the UK (backed by their “experts”— you remember, those medics and scientists who said that 800,000 might die in the UK…) are quite likely, soon, to quarantine arrivals from other countries as well, not just Spain.

About 90,000 people work for UK-based airlines; about 77,000 work for travel agencies, tour companies etc. There are still over 4,000 travel agency shops in the UK.

I wonder what the figures will be in 2021 and 2022?

Reverting to Boris-idiot’s government, little Matt Hancock has announced new health measures in respect of obesity. Certainly a serious issue (in fact, I could stand losing a few stone myself!), but these measures are either underwhelming or silly.

For example, restaurants will be compelled to have the calorie-count of each dish marked on the menu. That might work for businesses where the menus never or hardly ever change, such as fish and chip shops, McDonald’s etc, but in a restaurant with a changing menu, it places a huge burden (and so cost) on the restaurant.

I can see most restaurants closing down: fewer customers, more costs, less profit…Same with pubs.

These measures (laid down by Boris-idiot and his crew) show the clear signs of having come from people who really have little knowledge or understanding of how people think, of how businesses work (and that does include Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak), or of how to dig themselves out of the hole into which they have dug the UK.

I always said, from when the “virus” scare started, that there would not be a “V”-shaped recovery, but something like an “L”-shaped non-recovery. The “experts” mostly disagreed (then) but I feel even more certain that the economy is about to tank. The facemask nonsense just adds an extra burden.

USA. UK. Two very different countries, but with some similar trends and problems. I have lived in the USA, long ago, and am legally qualified there (Bar of the State of New York), but my main focus is the UK.

Looking at the UK, it is clear that there is really no functioning “democracy” worthy of the name (nor a population capable of sustaining one). All the trends that I see point toward an eventual culture war, which might become a kind of civil war.

Twitter

Seems that most aggressive Jews and their dupes or slaves have decided to boycott Twitter for 48 hours. The air seems fresher already!

Incidentally, I notice that one such boycotter is Layla Moran, the buck-toothed lesbian (she prefers “pansexual”) who is the latest leader of the fading LibDem rump.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Layla_Moran.

What makes Layla Moran’s kow-towing noteworthy is that she is half-Palestinian.

[update: same day: a reader of this blog corrects me to say that Layla Moran is not yet LibDem leader. Quite right. My mistake. She is only the candidate most likely to win at present. What does it say about the LibDems, though, that it has taken them 7 or 8 months to elect a leader and yet are still not there? Pathetic rabble.]

The meaning of numbers

We are hearing about upsurges in Coronavirus. These are being used to justify police-state measures in the UK and elsewhere. Strange times. The “upsurge” is entirely (certainly entirely in Europe) because testing is being done now on a fairly wide scale.

Yes, more people are now “officially” infected, simply because more people are being tested. Many show no symptoms; most, in fact, require no treatment; none, or almost none, will die or even become seriously unwell.

The actual number of deaths from (or even with) Coronavirus is dropping not only in the UK but worldwide. In the UK it is now down at or below 10 individuals per day, even on the basis that anyone dying with Coronavirus is deemed to die of Coronavirus.

Despite the above, BBC Today Programme and other shows preferred not to focus on the fact that the death rate is close to zero. Oh no, their choice was to feature some Scottish pilot who was hospitalized while flying for an airline in Vietnam!

The said Scottish pilot was the only patient in Vietnam likely to die of/with Coronavirus. and the Vietnamese were desperate to save him, and did. He was unlucky to have become infected, but the fact is that the unfortunate fellow is a statistical freak. He is now slowly recovering in the UK.

The BBC used the above case to claim (as did the unfortunate pilot) that Coronavirus is a huge threat to everyone, whereas it can be seen that that Scottish pilot was a one in a million or one in a hundred thousand statistical anomaly.

English schools— the Great Replacement

34% of primary school pupils in England are now from an “ethnic minority” (the vast majority non-white). Scroll on 39 years. What then? 50%? More?

This is the “Great Replacement”, or “White Genocide” if you like. Most MPs, msm drones, others too, are evil criminals who have deliberately caused this existential crisis.

Coronavirus idiocy

Some local coronavirus outbreaks may just be mass hysteria, the new Government body in charge of Britain’s response has warned, saying that many people could wrongly believe they are infected.” [Daily Telegraph] https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/07/25/local-coronavirus-outbreaks-could-mass-hysteriajoint-biosecurity/?li_source=LI&li_medium=liftigniter-rhr

Those who read my blog every day will be aware that I had “interaction” yesterday with people who actually think that wearing facemasks will prevent transmission of “the virus”. They think so because they have been told so; told by this incompetent government; told by the msm liars and me-too-ers; told by Twitter…

The imposition of facemasks now is just mad. “The virus” seems to have peaked, in the UK, in March or early April of this year. There is little evidence that masks actually prevent transmission of “the virus” anyway (and plenty of evidence that they have negative health consequences generally), but if facemasks were going to be imposed, then March or April would have been the logical time.

To impose facemasks or “muzzles” now, when there are virtually no deaths occurring and few new infections, is quixotic, almost mad. We have to bear in mind that most “new infections” are of people who, almost all, will show few if any symptoms, and certainly require no medical intervention.

Also, as I noted yesterday (when I had an altercation with some busybodying Chinese yoot who thought that he was the Hampshire branch of the Red Guard), the area where I live had only a few deaths even at peak. The odds of even being infected in this area are tiny, yet Boris-idiot and his incompetent crew have decided, in their non-existent wisdom, that anyone shopping in the local small towns and villages, even in a large outlet such as a supermarket, must wear a mask or muzzle!

On the other hand, if you want to patronize a pub, bar or restaurant, fine! No muzzle or mask required…

One has to wonder what sort of cretin becomes an MP or minister (or shadow minister) these days. Look at the above “requirements”, look at the totality. Is any of it reasonable, logical, sensible?

What interests me, in part, about so many people today, is how very risk-averse they are, to an almost pathological degree. Whatever I may think of the British of the WW2 era, those people had resilience. In London and elsewhere, when bombs were falling (the peak being mid/late-1940 to mid-1941), people still went out to pubs and to fish and chip shops, the wealthier citizens to the Savoy, the Ritz, the Dorchester, and to (other) places of entertainment. They took “the War” in their stride.

Now? Much of the population is running scared of a virus which most people do not get (those who do often show no effect whatever), and which in any case has largely run its course in the UK. Pathetic.

Looked at from one point of view, this could easily be seen as an experiment in mind-control on the mass level.

There are always those who say, “we must do x, because even if only one life is saved, it is worth it”. They sometimes ramp up the emotional coercion by inserting “one child’s life…”.

So, on that basis, should the speed-limit for cars and trucks be reduced to 20 mph, or 10 mph, motorways included? That would save hundreds, probably thousands of lives each year in the UK. Or how about banning all motor transport? Now that would certainly save thousands of lives in terms of motor accidents. Sadly, however, it would also destroy the UK economy, cripple UK society, and would cost a large number of lives in various ways.

Apply the above to “lockdown” (shutdown) and to the mask nonsense.

I have not only often visited but, in a couple of cases, actually lived and worked in countries which are or were “police states”, if you like (authoritarian, with few “civil rights” or real rights under law), but this facemask nonsense feels more intrusive than did living in those places. By far. Perhaps because it is an intrusion by the State (and by emboldened busybodies) into one’s own personal space.

Well, you will not often find me applauding a Jew, but if one such were to say, “the time is half-past five”, then I should probably believe that, especially if I verify the fact by looking at my own watch.

In fact, Hitchens is wrong on the strict legal point, insofar as a shop can exclude any customer (except where that is on the basis of any of various types of unlawful “discrimination”). Some types of people are indeed exempt from the latest Boris-idiot law (or should that be “law”?), but that merely (in theory) gives a defence against prosecution and/or fine; it does not give unfettered right of entry to any particular shop.

Hitchens is right in general, though. There is a groupthink in place at present. Common Purpose chief of police, Cressida Dick, illustrated her “leading beyond authority” brainwashing on LBC radio a day or two ago, in saying that non-facemask-wearers should be “shamed” by members of the public. That is not only wrong morally but can be taken to be unlawful incitement (eg against the disabled who cannot wear facemasks and are exempt from doing so). Incitement, and by the Commissioner of Metropolitan Police!

I believe that I heard (misheard, I hope) that the choir at Worcester Cathedral, known to Elgar and others, is being closed down too, also for not being “diverse” enough. This is a war against British people, against white Northern European people, in fact. What was the old saying, “all’s fair in love and war”? Fight back, England!

Afternoon poem

To a Cat

I
Stately, kindly, lordly friend,
      Condescend
Here to sit by me, and turn
Glorious eyes that smile and burn,
Golden eyes, love’s lustrous meed,
On the golden page I read.

All your wondrous wealth of hair,
      Dark and fair,
Silken-shaggy, soft and bright
As the clouds and beams of night,
Pays my reverent hand’s caress
Back with friendlier gentleness.

Dogs may fawn on all and some
      As they come;
You, a friend of loftier mind,
Answer friends alone in kind.
Just your foot upon my hand
Softly bids it understand.

Morning round this silent sweet
      Garden-seat
Sheds its wealth of gathering light,
Thrills the gradual clouds with might,
Changes woodland, orchard, heath,
Lawn, and garden there beneath.

Fair and dim they gleamed below:
      Now they glow
Deep as even your sunbright eyes,
Fair as even the wakening skies.
Can it not or can it be
Now that you give thanks to see?

May not you rejoice as I,
      Seeing the sky
Change to heaven revealed, and bid
Earth reveal the heaven it hid
All night long from stars and moon,
Now the sun sets all in tune?

What within you wakes with day
      Who can say?
All too little may we tell,
Friends who like each other well,
What might haply, if we might,
Bid us read our lives aright.

II
Wild on woodland ways your sires
      Flashed like fires:
Fair as flame and fierce and fleet
As with wings on wingless feet
Shone and sprang your mother, free,
Bright and brave as wind or sea.

Free and proud and glad as they,
      Here to-day
Rests or roams their radiant child,
Vanquished not, but reconciled,
Free from curb of aught above
Save the lovely curb of love.

Love through dreams of souls divine
      Fain would shine
Round a dawn whose light and song
Then should right our mutual wrong —
Speak, and seal the love-lit law
Sweet Assisi’s seer foresaw.

Dreams were theirs; yet haply may
      Dawn a day
When such friends and fellows born,
Seeing our earth as fair at morn,
May for wiser love’s sake see
More of heaven’s deep heart than we.

[Swinburne, To a Cat]

Hitchens is right about much. Russia is not the old Soviet Union, which had (at least in principle) a strategy of world domination. As for Hitchens’ Any Questions interlocutor, the amusingly misnamed James Cleverly, he is quite the typical government minister of the day: a half-caste with a “degree” in “Hospitality Management” from some degree mill. These people struggle to rise to medocrity…

That is ingrained in the Jews. Some are conscious of pushing that line and conscious of their anti-European or anti-“white” “racism”, while others do so almost automatically. It is in all or virtually all of them, however.

Maybe my occasional “idle thought of an idle fellow” is right, and someone is “putting something in the water”…

Labour

I have often blogged about this before. The Labour Party emerged from socio-economic conditions that no longer apply. The original proletariat scarcely exists. The new “precariat” is either non-political or volatile. There is little left of ingrained “I live in x, I do y job and my grandparents voted z, so I am voting z too.”

Labour made sense to the industrial proletariat of 1926, 1945, even the early 1980s. Free medical, better free education, more help for the sick, disabled, elderly etc. That all made sense to Labour voters; indeed, the “One Nation” Conservatives, from 1950-1979, or even 1950-1997, themselves followed such policies in large measure. After 1945, they had to.

Now? Well, it will be recalled that Jack London said, “I am a socialist, but a white man first“…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_London. That probably sums up the viewpoint of many UK Labour or former Labour voters. Have they left Labour or has Labour left them?

Labour is now just one of the “ZOG/NWO” parties: controlled or influenced by the Jewish-Zionist lobby; pro-finance capitalism; pro-Israel; pro USA/NATO; pro-mass immigration etc.

The only demographic now voting Labour in really large numbers is that of the non-whites. The under-24s too, but it has to be remembered that, as our English, Scottish, Welsh populations decline through paucity of births, the non-white populations are hugely increasing. They may not be, in the old phrase, “breeding like rabbits”, but the non-white birthrate is very significantly higher than that of the English (etc).

In other words, a very high proportion of under-24s in the UK, especially in England, are non-whites.

The English —and Welsh— people have nowhere to go. Fake “Conservatism” under Boris-idiot and all the other clowns, or fake “Labour”, under Jewish lobby doormat Keir Starmer.

Scotland has fake “nationalism, of course, via the SNP.

The best thing would be for the Labour Party to slide and eventually disappear. At least then the British people might find an alternative party or movement to support, rather than swinging from Con to Lab to Con, with little real change.

Jeremy Corbyn fighting fund

I notice that Corbyn’s GoFundMe appeal, to defend him against the “lawfare” being waged by Jews (fronted by self-publicizing bad joke solicitor, Mark Lewis, now resident in Eilat, Israel) is now taking in money at a rate of about £40 per minute! https://uk.gofundme.com/f/47gyy-jeremy039s-legal-fund

I may not have much time for Corbyn, but those against him are untermenschen.

Corbyn’s mistake was in not fighting back effectively when he was Labour Party leader. In particular, he and “grandpa Stalin” McDonnell both paid lip-service to the largely-faked “holocaust” farrago. It was the biggest mistake that they could have made.

If, as Hitchens says, Parliament is”quite dead” and there is no real Opposition (I agree with both contentions), then anything is justified to restore the rights of the British people. Anything.

…for the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].

Below, self-described “historian” and “journalist” (and “antifa” cheerleader), Mike Stuchbery, now a resident of Stuttgart, showing stunning yet unsurprising lack of thought:

Might it be that, having been under fairly strict National Socialist rule (whatever its benefits), followed by Soviet and other occupation, and then (in the East) hardline socialist rule (and Stasi monitoring) for much of the 20th Century, Germans generally just do what they are told, and are used to being ordered around?

It is precisely because they were under strict State control that most Germans are not dissenting about having to wear masks; the idea of saying “no!” is not accepted, it seems. Having said that, most of the UK is no better. Rabbits.

Altercations in the toytown police state

I drove to Waitrose in the nearby small town. I had with me a disposable mask, knowing that without one I should not be allowed entrance (they still have one black-clad Handmaid’s Tale militia operative loitering outside).

Sure enough, as I was going in, the “militiawoman”, who recognized me from previous visits, smiled but added “mask, please, Sir”…so I had no choice if I wanted to shop. I waved the mask and replied “…I am all ready for the new police state”, and she had the grace to laugh.

Inside the supermarket, I found that wearing the mask was hot and uncomfortable, so pulled it down below the nose. None of the Waitrose staff said anything. The problem came when I was at the drinks section. A young shopper, a Chinese, actually had the gall to tell me that my mask should be above my nose! Even though my mouth and much of my face was covered! A ch**k!

I told the Chinese (pulling my mask aside) “thank you!” and waved him away. The Ch…did not give up and was just starting to lecture me when I snarled “SHUT UP! GET LOST” and walked away. He did not follow. I felt like smashing him into the ground, so maybe he had a lucky escape (or, on the other hand, maybe I myself did! After all, he might have been a Kung Fu exponent!).

Anyway, I did the rest of my shopping without incident, and fortunately did not see the aforesaid Ch… again.

Incidentally, I am not a natural snarler, but some people go too far; some people just keep pushing. Then they are dealt with. Having said that, I can do without (as 1920s Chicago gangsters used to put it) any “heat” from the toytown police. Walking away was the wise choice, I suppose, especially in a confined place like a supermarket…

[The Untouchables, maybe my favourite TV series as a child, seen by me as repeats on TV in Sydney when I was about 10 years old (in1967)]

What makes it even more ridiculous is that, had I crossed the road from the supermarket, and entered the pub there, I would not have had to wear a bloody mask at all!

As I have written before, a police state is bad enough, a toytown one just as bad, really, but an incompetent and toytown one just a bad joke. As for the Ch…, how DARE HE say ANYTHING to me in my own country!

In fact, this was not the end of my encounter with the new Boris-idiot toytown police state. because I needed a fuel top-up for the car. I went to the only nearby place, and the usual young man (there’s either a young man or young woman) was there. I went into the kiosk to pay, only to be asked “do you have a mask, Sir?” I politely said that it was in the car, but I had the exact money in cash. He said that I could advance and put it down (he was behind a perspex screen anyway, though not himself wearing a mask!

I did pay, and (politely, smiling) mentioned that England is becoming a police state. His expression hovered between smiling and crying. For a second, I thought that the poor little bastard was going to burst into tears!

Britain’s so-called “new normal”: people who are (99.999% of them) not infected and not going to sneeze on anyone in any case, forced to shop muzzled, indefinitely. Oh…and silly little busybodies who think that they have the right to be a multikulti Red Guard, telling British people what to do.

Well, in future, I shall only go out to shop (if at all) once per week, or maybe even switch to ordering online. I certainly have no intention of using non-food shops. Let them all go to the wall. As for fuel, I can drive 5 miles to the nearest automatic pump (that takes debit cards). Fuck them all.

Am I the only “rebel” or “dissenter” (or “heretic”)? I doubt it. If this continues, the offline retail sector in the UK is well and truly screwed. It may be that half or a quarter of consumers will still shop in person, but half or three-quarters will not bother. Waitrose this evening had few customers, which may be a straw in the wind; and, after all, people have to shop for food…

This action by Boris-idiot and his Cabinet (of incompetents) has weaponized the busybody instincts of at least a minority. It has emboldened a few of the bastards to the extent that they are willing and feel able to give lectures and even orders to people, based on half-understood bits and pieces of spurious “science” and doubtful “law” sprayed out in biased fashion by the BBC and Sky News liars.

I am still fuming, hours later, despite a glass of Hereford vintage cider and a small glass of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva rum from Venezuela.

When I saw Nick Griffin referring to the “British people” recently as “#WankerNation” in tweets, I thought that maybe he was going a little too far, too soon. Now I fear that he is completely correct. Most British people are just scared rabbits, scared out of their skins by a virus which kills about one in two thousand people, and which has (probably) run its course, at least for now and in its present form.

Now, I have seen for myself that, even in an area scarcely affected by “the virus”, the rabbits are all complying, at least superficially, with the mask-wearing edict which only exists as of today because Boris-idiot has decided to make it so (without even a Commons vote), and which may be in force indefinitely.

This is something new in history: weaponization of a fear of a medical condition, but a fear based on almost nothing. And the population is just obeying the non-law…

I think that we can no longer credibly call the UK a “democracy”. We need a new term. I saw “wallygarchy” recently. It made me laugh, but that fits well enough for the moment. A “nation” that is no longer a nation, ruled by arbitrary incompetents, who are ruling over an emerging dystopia of hopeless, helpless serfs.

Diary Blog, 24 July 2020

One of the aspects of the present madness that interests me is not only how supine half of the public has been, but the extent to which the kind of people most rebellious, and also vocal about “rights”, in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, are now the most eager to submit to State authority: the “socialists”, “Left-wingers” (I myself disparage such “right”/”left” terminology, though), civil rights activists etc.

Don’t believe me? Look on Twitter. The kind of people in the categories just listed are all but begging to be “locked down”, monitored, tested, traced, masked, muzzled and generally told what to do, when to do it, and what to wear while doing it.

As I have blogged in the past, the degeneration of that part of the body politic is palpable.

You see it in other ways too: the wish not to leave the EU, because the EU (they imagine) will control things, control them, lay down rules for everything…

Again, you see it in the wish to be subject to the arbitrary constraints of Twitter and other online platforms; and the allied wish to “report” those whose views dissent from the shibboleths of the Twit-pack.

Such people are also the most fervent supporters of the muzzling of the population…

Have a read of the above. Lewis was and is aware of everything I wrote about and against him; his Jew-Zionist friends and allies monitor my writings obsessively and have done for years: Lewis himself has been obsessed with me for years, since 2011 or 2012, and has plotted against me for all that time. Lewis has never sued me, though; indeed, he has never even threatened to sue me, despite everything that I have written, but has tried to strike at me covertly. (((Typical))).

The other Jews in the Mark Lewis/”Campaign Against Antisemitism” etc cabal(s) are aghast that Lewis and his clients cannot extract both flesh and blood from Corbyn; here below, fanatical Jew Zionist David Collier:

The tweet below made me laugh! I dare say that even Lewis himself might be (albeit bitterly) amused by it.

Even Lewis’s enemies often tend to accept him at his own valuation (and self-publicizing) as so-called “top lawyer”; yet at the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal in 2018, those judging him were told by Lewis’s own Counsel that all he owned were a mobility scooter, a private pension worth £70 a week, and his own clothes! Even discounting the usual tendency of Jews (cf. Ghislaine “Maxwell”) to play the Jewish “victim” when caught out, I doubt that Lewis has millions (or anything much) salted away.

Below, some interesting quotations:

Of course, the “Jew who dislikes Jews” is a not-uncommon figure: in the historical past, Marx for one, who wrote to Engels “I am in Ramsgate; nothing but Jews and bedbugs“; through those figures cited in the tweet above, and on to the anti-Zionist Jews of today such as Miko Peled and Gilad Atzmon.

Yet another MP sex scandal. Almost normalized now. This particular idiot is apparently unsure whether he prefers girls or boys, so ineptly tries to have it off with both.

What still astounds me is the sheer mediocrity (at best) of so many MPs these days. So few have even a modicum of education, culture, or real belief in anything at all, let alone any genuine desire to serve the country or their constituents. Just trash, really.

When I became aware of the existence of Rob Roberts (about an hour ago), I was wondering whether he would make a good candidate for my Deadhead MPs series on this blog, but sadly he seems (judging by his Wikipedia entry) to have nothing interesting about him at all.

Coronavirus panic/scam

In the local authority area where I live (a quite large area of nearly 300 square miles in coastal and near-coastal Southern England, rural and semi-rural, with a few small towns and villages), the population is about 180,000 people. The “R” number has been varying below 1 and 2 (ie. number of cases per 100,000 population). In the past week, 1.8. There have been, therefore, about 2 or 3 confirmed new cases in the past week. Out of 180,000 people…

When you consider that only one out of dozens, perhaps a hundred, new cases will die from this condition, you can see that, in this particular area, perhaps one or two people are likely to die from “the virus” over the course of the next year! Sad for those people and their relatives, but not repeat not a reason to shut anything down, nor to make the population wear facemasks.

This is, thankfully, not the Plague.

The tweeter above, “Sarah Deech” or “@londonette”, is the daughter, I believe, of “baroness” Deech, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Deech,_Baroness_Deech, a Jewish woman who, when my “case” was being “investigated” by the Bar Standards Board from 2014 (the case having been brought against me, in effect, by “UK Lawyers for Israel”), was not only the Chair of the Bar Standards Board but also a Patron of…UK Lawyers for Israel!

By the time that the case came up before the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal, it having been decided that my (in the end, only) 5 supposedly “grossly offensive” tweets (out of between 150,000-200,000 tweets and retweets!) merited my being “tried”, “baroness” Deech had in fact been replaced by a different Chair, though only by a former UK Amassador to Israel, who was extremely pro-Israel and extremely pro-Jewish interests!

I raised the question of perceived bias (in the decision to take me before a Tribunal) at the hearing itself , but the (generally reasonably fair) retired Circuit Judge chairing the 5-person panel told me at least twice that whatever the merits of my claim that the decision-making process was flawed (because, as I submitted, “justice must not only be done but be seen to be done” and “no man can be a judge in his own cause“), it was not relevant , because what mattered was the justice of the hearing itself…

With all respect to that judge, I disagree. If a person is only “tried” because a biased process decided that he should be tried, then he is on the back foot from the start, no matter how “fair” the hearing is.

The above, in my view, is so even if “baroness” Deech took no part in the decision to haul me before the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal, though I find it hard to believe that she was, at the material time, unaware that an organization in which she was a major figure (UK Lawyers for Israel) was complaining officially about me to another organization which she headed and for which she had responsibility (the Bar Standards Board).

As a matter of fact, the hearing in October 2016, though generally fair in the way it was conducted, was wrong about, inter alia, whether my five tweets (the Jews had originally complained about many dozens!) were in fact “grossly offensive”.

Take the one about Michael Gove, in which I truthfully described the little bastard as something like a pro-Jew pro Israel expenses cheat. ALL TRUE (I was unaware at the time that the bastard was also a cocaine abuser and drunk!): https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/726458/Barrister-Ian-Millard-disbarred-anti-Semitic-tweets-Michael-Gove-Nicholas-Sarkozy

In fact, I could have appealed the findings of fact and/or the disbarment penalty, but, having ceased Bar practice in 2008, eight years before I was “tried” and disbarred, it would have been almost pointless. I did not care, though it does deprive me of being able to lunch at my (former) Inn when in London, which is a nuisance; I rarely visit London these days anyway.

Actually, the BSB did write to me a couple of years after I was disbarred, saying that I should have had the right to challenge the allocation of my case to a 5-person panel instead of a 3-person panel (only a 5-person panel can disbar) and that I could do so if I wished. I could not be bothered and so did not take that up.

I wrote about some of the above here: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/ and may blog in greater detail at a later date.

Finally, I took a look at the composition of the present BSB (the actual governing board): 13 members (a coven? Only joking…), out of which 3-4 Jews. The kind of disproportion one sees everywhere.

One of the present Board was actually an unsmiling “bookend” on the panel at my own “trial” in 2016, though I see no point in identifying her.

and the Boris-idiot government has decided that you will wear muzzles or facemasks in supermarkets. Not in pubs, though! Or restaurants. Or at work. Yet many rabbits are still going to be out tomorrow wearing their silly facemasks and denouncing anyone not doing the same!

and here [below] is Commissioner of Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, no less, again advocating lawless communitarian police-statism:

Peter Hitchen refers to Cressida Dick “exceeding her authority“. That will not offend her. Au contraire. That is what Common Purpose teaches such drones to do: https://commonpurpose.org/knowledge-hub-archive/all-articles/leading-beyond-authority/

Wearing a facemask muzzle is not a “necessary” public health measure but an experiment in herding or corralling the populations of a number of countries, including the UK. Think of women in traditional hardline Islamic societies: hooded, veiled, without much personality, unable to do much or say much about society; compliant; submissive… That is exactly what ZOG/NWO wants for the British people, among others.

ZOG has obviously been emboldened by the “success” of the lockdown. Success, but not in stopping “Coronavirus”. The virus had already peaked, just before the “lockdown” shutdown was even imposed. No, the “success” was in getting the population to be compliant, driven by fear of a plague that never was, and by the vague “laws”, “rules” and “advice” sprayed out from government and the toytown police (state).

“The future you chose”?

Maybe the British people “chose” their future by not opposing it by a better vision, and thus condemning us to a future (present) where ultra-wealthy Jews have three mega-yachts in Monaco, and Gary Lineker etc get a million a year for gassing about football on TV, but most British people are caged in a multikulti zoo, in poverty or near-poverty.

So, yes, the British people bear some of the guilt and blame, but the weight of that must rest with NWO/ZOG conspirators, and with the traitors in Westminster, BBC, Sky News, the Press, publishing and academia.

The dumbing down of society

This goes beyond poor cultural levels or levels of general (or any) knowledge. There is less and less understanding, even among (perhaps especially among) those who are supposedly educated, for concepts such as free speech, personal liberty, society under law, respect for others, decent behaviour generally.

You see it in the pronouncements around the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense. The Superintendent of police in Bristol who thought it best to allow the multikulti mob to tear down an old statue because (in his world?) it would look bad for his men to be seen protecting the statue of someone who once dealt in slaves (250 years ago). In which case, tear down anything to do with Elizabeth I, Charles II, James I, Queen Anne etc. Maybe that is or will be the next step of those behind these “protests”.

The Superintendent in question took refuge in the idea that if his men protected the statue, not only would it look questionable (he thinks) but windows nearby might be broken by the mob and that would be terrible in the “Coronavirus” sitation, when Bristol retailers are already suffering.

Where does one start, in unpacking such nonsense? First, the retailers are suffering mainly because an incompetent government has scared the population out of its skin and shut down the economy. Second, it is simply not the job of a police superintendent to concern himself with the wider economic effects of his doing his duty. His job is just that: to do his duty, prevent any mob breaking the law, and to arrest those so breaking the law. Das ist’s!

That is one example of the sheer lack of intelligent thought around. For others, look at, eg, Twitter. Examples abound.

There are many people who say that “you have free speech, but are not free from the consequences of your speech”. A law lecturer called Paul Bernal, from East Anglia, is fond of tweeting that or similar formulae.

I feel sorry for the students of someone so unthinking. According to that formulation, Stalin’s Soviet Union, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Khmer Republic (Cambodia) etc all had “free speech”, because you could say whatever you liked in those societies, so long as you did not mind “the consequences” (being shot, sent to labour camps, or having your head beaten in by rifle butts).

Thoughts

O Mensch! Gib acht!

Was spricht die tiefe Mitternacht?»Ich schlief, ich schlief—,

Aus tiefem Traum bin ich erwacht:—

Die Welt ist tief,Und tiefer als der Tag gedacht.

Tief ist ihr Weh—,

Lust—tiefer noch als Herzeleid:

Weh spricht: Vergeh!Doch alle Lust will Ewigkeit—,

—will tiefe, tiefe Ewigkeit!«

[“O man! Take heed!

What saith deep midnight, indeed?”

I lay asleep, asleep—I waked from my deep dream.

The world is deep,

And deeper than even day may dream.

Deep is its woe—Joy— deeper yet than woe is she:

Saith woe: ‘Hence! Go!’

Yet joy would have eternity,—Profound, profound eternity!”]

Muzzles and facemasks

Peter Hitchens is right to keep “banging on” about all of the lies and mistakes around the “Coronavirus” situation in the UK. The virus itself is scarcely even an issue now, in reality, but the repressive measures taken to (supposedly) contain it are being strengthened even as the virus ceases to be present in much of the country; in fact, in many parts of the UK, “Coronavirus” has always been something happening to other people in other places, and read about in newspapers (if anyone still reads them), or seen on the —now terminally-boring— BBC News propaganda.

Thought about the UK and the whole “Western” world today…

We shall soon be in a world in which a man may be howled down for saying that two and two make four, in which people will persecute the heresy of calling a triangle a three-sided figure, and hang a man for maddening a mob with the news that grass is green.” [G.K. Chesterton]

I have so little confidence in the cultural level of most British people today (I take no direct interest in most of the other rabble tribes that live on these islands) that I suppose that I should link to Wikipedia in case some people have no idea who G.K. Chesterton even was…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._K._Chesterton

It was obvious from the start that Keir Starmer is totally in the pocket of the Jew/Israel/Zionist lobby. His wife is a Jewish lawyer, and their children are being brought up as Jewish. I understand that they have “buy to let” properties.

Oh, this is Lewis on Twitter, by the way:

[above: some of the abusive tweets that got Lewis into trouble with the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority]

Please refer to the above-designated blog posts to learn more.

More about Labour

Under Keir Starmer, Labour has recovered from the Jew-orchestrated msm anti-Corbyn barrage of last year, which led to Labour’s opinion poll ratings bumping along the bottom, hugely behind the misnamed “Conservatives”. However that may be, Labour is still 5-10 points adrift.

I see little popular enthusiasm for Labour, even as this most incompetent government lurches from lie to stupid policy to muzzling the population to scandal to more lies. Indeed, Starmer has nothing to say except to say that the “Conservatives” should do what they are doing, but harder and better. Underwhelming.

Prospects in UK politics

It is clear that, despite a government so incompetent that even its own party members are disgusted by it, the Boris-idiot/Dominic Cummings regime is here to stay, at least for the next couple of years. The 80-seat Commons majority guarantees that, pretty much.

The Labour Party, like the Conservative Party, is now back under what amounts to Jewish lobby control or strong influence. Labour is now just a rubbish “alternative”. That was in most respects true under Corbyn, but at least Labour was to some extent anti-Zionist.

I think that my assessment of Corbyn, 4 years ago, has been proven correct: yes, anti-Zionist, but still willing to play the Jews’ tune when it comes to the “holocaust” farrago. Weak. Corbyn was also willing to see the UK swamped by the non-white “ethnics”.

Corbyn was at root not sufficiently or properly ideological. His academic record was poor, his work record almost non-existent. Apart from a couple of years bumming around aged about 19, mainly in Jamaica, Cuba and South America, he knows little of the world, as far as can be seen.

Also, Corbyn’s economic and social knowledge is very shallow. One of his ex-wives says that he rarely if ever reads a book. Any book.

Starmer? Well, as noted above, in effect a fully paid-up member of the Friends of Israel cabal, though he seems not to be on their official list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labour_Friends_of_Israel#2016_onwards; probably a freemason too. He is an enemy of the British people from the start.

As it stands, Labour supports almost all the policies of the Boris-idiot government of fools. Hard to think what of substance Labour would change, were it in power, though Starmer is probably a better administrator than Boris-idiot. Well, that after all would scarcely be a difficult challenge!

Boris-idiot has no real ideas beyond schoolboy ones such as bridges across the sea etc. “Boris” has no idea how to administer anything at all, and has never done so. He is basically a part-Jew public entertainer whose jokes are rapidly falling very flat with the public.

The economic hit which is coming, largely because of the “lockdown” and facemask nonsense supported by both Government and Opposition, will strain the rivets of the society and state to the utmost over the next 2+ years. The NWO/ZOG System does not much care, controlling as it does the 2-3 “main parties”. The ZOG idea is “where can they (the voters) go?”

In principle, the answer should be “we need a social-national party”. The problems are that, first, the anti-democratic laws and institutions Blair laid down (Electoral Commission, Equalities Commission etc) make it almost impossible to have a functioning real social-national party.

Beyond that, one has to look at the British people. They are not at present the material from which a real party, such as the NSDAP of the 1920s, could be formed. They are mostly interested in those new opiates of the people, sports and msm “celebrity” nonsense. In some ways, we are in “Weimar”, but in other ways not.

I have, in earlier blog posts, set out my view, that the social-national elements need to concentrate in one area of the country, creating a Schwerpunkt. That may include the creation of a party, whether registered as such or not. A political party, however, cannot be the sole focus.
