Coronavirus

The average age of people who died from Covid-19 in England and Wales since the pandemic began is 82.4. The data shows how this compares to deaths from other causes

It really is time to put these blinkered scientists and medics with their tunnel vision back in their box, before there is nothing left to save in this country: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8845533/Coronavirus-Soaring-infections-death-rates-claims-justify-lockdowns.html

At some point, the UK will have to bite the bullet, stop messing around with the various forms of nonsense now current (facemasks, “lockdowns”, the ludicrous “Rule of Six” etc) and get the country moving, before we go into a tailspin to socio-economic death.

Saw an interesting, if eccentric, Twitter account:

Very true. An anachronistic idea, akin to the 1940s BBC radio Brains Trust. A panel of big brains educates and informs the public. Hardy ha ha. Look at the typical Question Time panel! Pathetic.

This is becoming a total farce! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8848073/Downing-Street-says-couples-coronavirus-hotspots-meet-indoors.html

I see that even “socialists” or sort-of socialists, like Andy Burnham, are waking up to the socio-economic damage being done, not by “the virus” but by the absurd “lockdown” (shutdown) measures. Except that his beef is that vastly more people should receive vastly more money in compensation.

Back in 2010, when Burnham stood for the Labour leadership, I thought that he was the best of a very poor bunch, but he had no star or glamour quality and so little chance of winning. I tweeted at the time that, whether he really cared (about the people) or not, at least he gave the impression that he did.

If Andy Burnham raises his profile more, he is not necessarily to be ruled out in terms of succeeding Keir Starmer. A safe seat would be found, no doubt, and the show goes on. Perhaps. It probably needs more than that to save Labour, though.

Don’t care who it is can someone in the Tory party just get rid of Boris , Doris , or whatever you call him he is just ucking this country over day by day soon we will be nothing more than a country of poor powerless nothings.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/reader-comments/p/comment/link/605667085;

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron’s cruelty may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end.” CS Lewis https://www.dailymail.co.uk/reader-comments/p/comment/link/605665773

You just couldnt make this cr*p up any more. Everyone should just get on with their lives and stay home if they feel they need to. I voted for Boris – much to my shame – I didnt vote for some kind of police state with idiots telling me to wash my hands, not go out, wear a mask. Enough is enough. IFR rate is the same as flu. Daily deaths, but 1500-1600 die in England and Wales every day, 550,000 a year, since when was it the governments repsonsibility to save us all ??? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/reader-comments/p/comment/link/605665125

Most people will find this funny, but it wont stop , the general stupidity and compliance of the british public will mean we will be the biggest testing ground for brave new world of slavery. Well done.” https://www.dailymail.co.uk/reader-comments/p/comment/link/605664689

A comment on the repression of free speech today…

I suppose that the distinction is that the Jewish lobby, and ZOG/NWO, usually do not know the content of your telephone conversations (unless they put out a special effort…)

Massive. Do you really imagine that this place, wih all the people inside, is to combat a few mad Muslim extremists stabbing people at random with kitchen knives?

Stray thoughts about education

I have just watched the quiz show, The Chase, on TV. One contestant was a scruffy girl who is apparently studying Criminology at Greenwich.

I was unaware that Greenwich even had a “university”, to be honest, but it does [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Greenwich]; moreover, one which has supplied two Nobel laureates. Its main campus is based in the former Naval College which (again something that I did not know) was sold by the Royal Navy in the 1990s.

University of Greenwich International College, UK - Ranking, Reviews,  Courses, Tuition Fees
[The Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich]

What shocked me was the dearth of knowledge in that girl student (aged 20). She seemed to know almost nothing. She correctly answered two questions about pop music and one about the drink, absinthe. She could not even say how many feet were in 60 inches (she said three!). She had been in full-time education for about 15 years! An indictment of the educational system in the UK. Incidentally, she did guess a few more questions correctly, and scraped through to the “Final Chase” part of the show, where her two colleagues, a surgeon and a pub-manager, knew enough to win the team £14,000.

Reverting to the general question, I suppose that the country needs at least some criminologists. I suppose…Really? Anyway, it made me wonder why so much of the huge amount the UK ploughs into education is simply wasted, either because the system is not really educating many of those who pass through it, or because the net result is an oversupply of (at best) mediocre “graduates” with degrees in subjects which are of little or no use to us as a people.

I am not one of those people who thinks that the only worthwhile degrees are scientific or vocational, but there must come a point when the State as major funder (directly or via loans that are usually not repaid) says, “we have too many x y z and not enough a b c”.

The whole idea of the “degree” (a mediaeval concept) needs to be revisited anyway.

I met a woman once who had taken some kind of degree in Criminology (I think it was), part-time and/or from a Northern English “McUniversity”. She was a civil servant in the Ministry of Justice based, I think, either in Liverpool or Manchester (I forget), and, on the back of the degree etc, had just been promoted to a higher level (£50,000+ a year salary; this was in 2007). I have no idea what her knowledge level in the subject really was, but I noticed, on visiting her home once, that the only books there (that I could see) were paperbacks about “famous crimes” and the like; nothing too serious. I think that her job was culled in the spending cuts of 2010-2015.

Getting away from anecdote, I think that anyone has the right to study what they like, but that the State has the right to direct funding and any grants of money to those activities likely to benefit the State or the people as a whole. Britain is undersupplied with nurses and doctors, among other occupations; oversupplied with barristers, criminologists (arguende) and various other types of people.

It may be that the right way forward is for the State to fund tuition depending on priority; to confer grants of subsistence allowances to those most likely to make good use of any tertiary education, such as full subsistence to the top 20% of candidates, half as much for the next 20% of candidates, and nothing to the remaining 60% but to allow those others to study, if they wish, by taking out a loan from the State which will have to be repaid over time no matter what.

At present, 50% (approx) go on to tertiary education. Many of these people are wasting their time and the State’s resources. Change must come, not least in making it easier for people without tertiary diplomas or degree certificates to get into various fields of work.

Beheading in France

I have only just now been alerted to the latest Islamist atrocity in France.

A terrible crime, perpetrated by people whose ideas are more suited to Arabia in the 7th Century than to Europe in the 21st.

I suppose there is the point, though, that the teacher would probably not have shown caricatures of Jews to his pupils (and if he had, he would have been dismissed; without question)…

In the end, Europe must again become Christendom, but in a new way…

  1. Hello Ian: Thank you for the tweets from “Ian Brown”. They are very good. I have to say I am very surprised that Tweeter has not closed down Nick Griffin’s account.

    A friend of mine who does not speak English and therefore does not have access to much information about the UK told me today (proving he is a very perceptive and clever fellow) “This Boris Johnson is the biggest moron I have ever seen, he is even worse than Macron” LOL

    If a bloke from Argentina can figure this out why the English people cannot do the same? Too much reliance on the TV and the media perhaps?

      I too am surprised that Nick Griffin has not been “suspended”, in Twitter’s weasel language, meaning expelled. Though there may be several reasons, it may be because he does not interact with others, so denying the Jews the chance to say that they were addressed directly and offended.

      How long Griffin will stay on Twitter, I do not know.

      My impression (re Johnson) is that many and perhaps most British people realize that this government is a pack of clowns headed by the biggest clown of all. On the other hand, in a binary system, the only alternative the System offers is the other Jewish lobby puppet, Keir Starmer, who is (to say the least) uninspiring.

  2. Hello. As I never belonged to Twitter I ignored how it works, I agree with you that Nick Griffin has been lucky so far, perhaps because cleverly he does not argue with people.

    Having said that I remember you said that Twitter is not really important as a platform for political activism so I wonder why these idiots who run Twitter bother to ban people for little messages? The only explanation is that they must be psychopaths obsessed with total control like the leaders in Orwell’s “1984”

    Just a note, Keir Starmer is even worse than Boris (if such a thing was possible) I remember when BLM began rioting in England Starmer published a photo of him and his wife kneeling in support of those bastards.

    BTW here we are in a far worse situation than the UK with the economy totally destroyed (nearly 2.400.000 new unemployed since March thanks to lockdown) the Central Bank almost empty and the f… puppet of the President going to China to ask/beg for a loan. We are totally ruined.

    1. Claudius:
      One word of minor correction. Keir Starmer: the photo of him kneeling in sign of fealty to the black and “antifa” vandals showed him not with his wife (a Jewish lawyer) but with Angela Rayner, the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Rayner.

      As to Argentina’s economic and monetary position: correct me if I am wrong, but I seem to recall a similar crisis occurring at least twice in my own lifetime.

      1. Hello Ian: Your memory serves you well. Argentina suffered two major economic crisis, one in 1975 and the other in 2001. Both were catastrophic to the majority of the population, particularly the last one when the middle class lost its savings as the government, in an incredible criminal act, stole all the existent deposits in US dollars. Several months later the people received only a quarter of their savings and in useless pesos not dollars.

        As the situation today deteriorates very rapidly there are rumours that a new “corralito” (an expression that describes the pillage of the people’s savings in 2001) is about to happen. Some of us have already withdrawn their savings in US dollars from the bloody banks.

        BTW: What happened in the great meeting between Boris-Idiot and the leaders of the EU regarding Brexit?

      2. Hello, Claudius, I just woke up and saw your message.

        That kind of State theft of bank deposits or money-value leads to long-term weakness of that State. It is not much known that Stalin did that after WW2. The rouble was revalued, each x-number of old roubles being exchanged for one new rouble. I think that it was about 20:1.

        As to Boris-idiot, the meeting was a failure. Sometime in the next week an EU delegation will arrive in London and that may be the final final final… end of the road.

        [ps. In fact, I have just seen that that ratio was 10:1]
