Diary Blog, 21 September 2020, including thoughts on both the opposition to “panicdemic” policies, and re. dissidence generally

Coronavirus. Is the country waking up?

At last the country seems to be starting to wake up from the nightmare of, not “the virus”, but the crazy over-reaction to it.

I happened to hear Sir Graham Brady, the MP for Altrincham and Sale West [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_Brady] on the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme. I was struck by his apparent determined opposition to the behaviour of the Government. He made the point that, had another MP not laid down an amendment to the Coronavirus Act 2020 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronavirus_Act_2020], the Government would in effect be able to rule by decree until 2022. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-54232375

I predicted quite a while ago (about 7 or 8 months ago) that any serious Parliamentary opposition to this government of clowns would eventually come —and have to come, in a Parliament where the Government sits on a majority of 80 mostly inexperienced MPs— not from enfeebled and compliant Labour under Jewish lobby puppet Keir Starmer, but from within the Conservative Party itself.

This is what happens in dictatorships, whether elected or unelected. Take the Soviet Union. There was opposition of an unapproved (illegal) sort: the NTS [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Alliance_of_Russian_Solidarists], the intellectual dissidents within the Soviet Union [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissident#Soviet_dissidents] and, least important after the 1930s, Trotskyists [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trotskyism].

However, the real opposition to Stalinism was within the CPSU (Communist Party) itself. Indeed, we now know that one of the most committed “anti-Soviet” “dissidents” was also one of the highest Soviet leaders, Beria [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavrentiy_Beria], who however was taking part in the very policies and repressions of which he mostly disapproved! I have blogged about Beria previously: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/11/03/what-if-beria-had-succeeded-stalin/

Beria was not alone in the Politburo. Other members had doubts about various core Soviet policies: Collectivization, mass repressions etc. After the death of Stalin, Khrushchev, himself one of the harshest Stalinist repressors in the 1930s and 1940s, arranged (with the rest of the surviving Politburo) to release most of the prisoners of the GULAG labour camp system [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulag], and made his famous”Secret Speech” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_the_Cult_of_Personality_and_Its_Consequences] in 1956, after which he appeared internationally as the figurehead of the post-Stalin wave of “the Thaw”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khrushchev_Thaw.

Where was the most significant opposition to Ceaucescu in Romania? In the highest councils of the State itself. Who ordered the execution of Ceausescu and his ghastly wife? Revolutionaries? No, not as such. Palace revolutionaries carrying the rank of general or minister.

Where is any opposition in North Korea? Among peasants and industrial workers? No, they are far too downtrodden, poor and frightened even to think of rebelling. The opposition, as far as it exists at all outside people’s own heads, exists in the higher ranks of the military machine and State officials. Which is why Kim Jong Un has had some (including his own relatives) shot, cut to pieces, fed to dogs etc. He knows where the opposition to him lies.

Reverting to the UK, now staggering under the weight of the governmental mistakes of 2020, we see the same. There is no real opposition from the Labour Party. Those feeble “me too”, bent-knee bad jokes have swallowed the whole “Coronavirus will kill everyone” thing whole. All they do is support the Government or say “do it more!” Nothing can be expected from Labour. In any case, Labour has no power even in potential, having only 202 MPs out of 650.

So we see that opposition to the absurd dictatorship of the clowns now starts to grow from within the Conservative Party itself, from previously-supportive newspapers etc. It may be that the courts will now turn to the illegality of several of the measures that have been taken.

Yes, I too noticed that Martha Kearney, that ridiculous BBC drone, was trying, repeatedly, to close down Sir Graham Brady, and to weaken what Brady was saying about this dictatorship of idiots pretending to be a government.

I effectively never use the railways now, but was talking to a lady who travelled from Hampshire to London then (after taxi transfer) to the “****hole of England” (the Kent estuary) recently. She said that the First Class from Hampshire to Waterloo was empty, and the Kent suburban service almost empty.

How mad is the Government, to keep pumping money into this black hole? It continues to depress the economy by its actions, makes the public scared of their own shadows (or of those nearby), then is surprised that the working masses do not want to commute or attend offices!

Just remember that, out of 8,000,000,000 people in the world, 1,000,000, i.e. 1 in every 8,000, have died from (or, more accurately, with) Coronavirus. That puts this whole “panicdemic” in proportion.

Yes, but 60+ years divided (albeit unequally) among 7 defendants means about 9 years each, so they will be out, averaged, in about 4.5 years…Idle thoughts? Covert elimination…

Eventually, a real government will have to thoroughly clean our Augean Stables.

This is (even though “the virus” exists and is a threat to public health to a limited extent) a gigantic confidence trick worldwide.

  1. Ha, ha, is that what the Tory Covid-19 denier idiots have as the โ€˜oppositionโ€™๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„? Sir Graham Brady has all the intellect of a donkey in a stable! Even by the usual dire standards of your average Tory backbencher he is as thick as excrement. So much so, in fact, that even Priti Useless looks like she would be a good contestant on Mastermind!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    As for Peter Hitchens, why isnโ€™t he dead yet? That would be, by far, the greatest public service to this country he could perform. I would suggest he expires by having a collapsed lung from Covid-19 in hospital but he is someone who thinks this highly infectious disease doesnโ€™t even exist hence he wants to take no actions at all against it.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ Stupid, evil ###t that he is!

  2. The government is seriously considering putting this country under a new lockdown because of utterly irresponsible morons like him encouraging people to disobey the social distancing regulations. If they do, he will then have the UTTER GALL to whinge about the new lockdown.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    When the government lifted the previous lockdown, they said, rightly, the virus had not gone away and that people needed to remain alert and to practice the mild social distancing advice/regulations as this was now a temporary โ€˜NEW normalโ€™ie REAL normality could ONLY return IF people followed the advice in their millions but Peter and company continue to irresponsibly encourage people to break the rules.

  3. ENOUGH is ENOUGH, Mr Hitchens. You either stop your incessant encouragement of people to defy the social distancing regulations/LAWS or you will have to be arrested.

    He is far worse than Sir Oswald and Lady Diana Mosley who were imprisoned in May 1940 for campaigning against the war yet those far more intelligent people were unjustly arrested and incarcerated by the British state.

    A sensible country like South Korea would take action against wicked Covid 19 deniers and inciters to break laws like Mr Hitchens.๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ก

  4. No, I would spare you from that oh so necessary treatment because your blog is not as influential as people like Peter Hitchens and that typical blonde Tory libertarian loony airhead Isabel Oakeshott. Those two, particularly Hitchens as he dies have SOME intellectual credibility, are doing real damage since their views are widely read.

  5. 9 years, and as you say, no doubt tasting freedom after just 4 years or so, for those ahem,โ€˜diverseโ€™, drug dealers! How utterly pathetic!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

    Drug dealing IS a serious crime, it is at the root of many other forms of crime and causes great harm in society and thus it should be treated far less leniently by the authorities.

    Whilst I may not go quite as far as a country like Singapore with capital punishment for even quite small amounts I see nothing wrong in Singaporeโ€™s approach to them in general ie prison sentences of twenty years to a lifetime WITH a sentence of judicial corporal punishment ie canning with the rattan cane ON TOP OF the lengthy prison sentence.๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  8. A great speech, Sir, about the menace of drug abuse/drug dealing in Singapore and about how you and your government try to tackle it whereas the drug addicts (please stand up, Mr Michael Gove!๐Ÿ™„) in our Tory government donโ€™t give a damm about an increasingly severe problem in our society!

  9. Yes, I think it is true to say those drug dealers from Newport would be unlikely to be smiling and pretty smug about their crimes in Singapore.

    After all, even relatively small amounts of possession there can put you into a situation whereby you can be presumed to be trafficking in those drugs and that can mean you get a visit from the hangman!

    There isnโ€™t much point in smiling about drug dealing in a coffin!

  11. Some people may think Singapore is too strict on drug dealing but then you need to consider two facts about that small country: 1) It is situated in the very heart of an area of the world known for that crime ie the โ€˜Golden Triangleโ€™ of Asia and 2.) most of its population is of Chinese origin and the Chinese were famously introduced to opium drug taking by the former colonial power in Singapore namely us!

    Perhaps, it is those two factors that help explain their ultra hardline stance?

  12. Mr Michael Gove, you have been arrested in Changi Airport in Singapore by officers from the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB). They inspected your luggage and found a large enough quantity of heroin for you to be charged under the notoriously strict Misuse of Drugs Act. You have been charged with possession of a large enough quantity of this drug to earn you the mandatory death sentence as it was presumed you were trafficking in it. You appeared in court and that sentence was passed upon you and, Iโ€™m afraid, the law MUST TAKE ITS COURSE!

    Unfortunately, it is Singaporeโ€™s governing party not ours and its headquarters are located in Upper Changi Road, Singapore and not in Matthew Parker Street, London, where the CONServative Partyโ€™s head office is located!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    1. I find Singapore interesting, m’Lord of Essex, but not mainly because of its law and order strictness. I look upon it rather as upon a laboratory, but instead of ants or lab rats, the citizens of the city-state are the subject of experimentation. Singapore is a society which (for good or ill) plans its societal journey in detail, and well in advance.

      I myself have not been there, but I know people who have been there many times. My late father once (God knows why) mistook the main court building for a metro station, and was very nearly arrested despite or because of (typically) trying to make friends with the police and security people via some (probably incomprehensible) jokes and/or comments about football or cricket.

  16. I havenโ€™t been to Singapore, South Korea or Japan though all three countries are on the bucket list. I particularly wish to visit the latter two. If I were to go to Singapore, I would have to make damm sure I never left any luggage unattended in Changi Airport or elsewhere as I would be afraid some drugs could be planted and I wouldnโ€™t wish to suffer their very severe penalties if I couldnโ€™t prove the drugs were not mine.

    1. If that is your fear, m’Lord of Essex, I suggest that you get a suitcase such as my Delsey “armoured” one, which was about ยฃ300 in Selfridges 25 years ago but is still in pretty much the same condition; cheap at the price. It has a 3-digit combination lock *and* 2 key locks.

  17. I am sure Singapore is a nice place to have a holiday for a few days and due to their very tough laws and rigorous enforcement of them it is safe to walk around the place late at night and have little fear of being attacked unlike in too many towns and cities in Britain.๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜žโ˜น๏ธHowever, their ultra-tough laws on drugs would make me a bit fearful of visiting that country as I wouldnโ€™t wish to have drugs planted on me by others! So, all in all, I might not ever get to visit Singapore!

    My sister once visited Australia and she stopped over in Changi Airport for refuelling en route but she didnโ€™t get out of the airport.

  18. According to this article on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_and_dependencies_by_numbers_of_police_officers Singapore doesnโ€™t have a large police force and indeed the ratio of officers per 100,000 people is even smaller than we have in England and Wales after brutal Tory cuts to their manpower.

    The figure for Singapore might not be entirely accurate though since I think that figure there is only regular โ€˜normalโ€™ officers and Singapore boosts its police numbers by getting its compulsory national servicemen to boost the ranks.
