Just heard a story from someone; secondhand but thought reliable.
A lady in her nineties, in hospital for various matters, has apparently just been tested for “the virus” in hospital (where she had already been staying for about a month), and the test was positive.
The said person has no symptoms of “the virus” at all, but has now been put into an even more isolated ward than the one in which she had stayed for weeks. All the nurses and doctors, and I think the patients, wear masks pretty much constantly. I presume that hands are washed frequently.
The above seems to establish, at least on the balance of probabilities, that facemasks are pretty much irrelevant in terms of protection from “the virus”. Also, that the best way to get this virus is to be admitted to an NHS hospital…
Incidentally, I happened to see the comment below somewhere:
I have no idea whether that is arrant nonsense or not. It would seem to fit in with the “Great Reset”, though.
Some aspects of contemporary Britain’s social life must be eradicated.
Belatedly, I did the quiz from last Saturday and, after the previous week’s defeat, am now again ahead of John Rentoul, who scored 5/10 this time. I myself managed 6/10. I failed on questions 7, 8, 9 and 10.
Interesting msm report from Germany
“In 2008, just as Lehman Brothers imploded and the world descended into the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, Franco A. joined the army. He was 19.
In no time, he was selected as one of only a handful of German officer cadets to attend the prestigious Saint-Cyr military academy in France, founded in 1802 by Napoleon.
His five years abroad included semesters at Sciences Po in Paris and King’s College London as well as at Sandhurst, one of the British Army’s premier officer training schools, and a summer session at the University of Cambridge.
In 2013, he wrote a master’s thesis, “Political Change and Strategy of Subversion.”
Over 169 pages, Franco A. argued that the downfall of great civilizations had always been immigration and the dilution of racial purity brought about by subversive minorities. Europe and the West were next in line if they did not defend themselves, he said.
Ethnically diverse societies were unstable, he wrote, and nations that allow migration were committing a form of “genocide.”
His final section posits that the Old Testament was the foundation of all subversion, a blueprint for Jews to gain global dominance. It might be, he said, “the biggest conspiracy in the history of humanity.”
Franco A. himself began stockpiling a “prepper” cellar with food rations and other supplies. He also began obtaining guns and ammunition illegally, prosecutors say.” [New York Times]
Exactly. Look at the story at the head of today’s blog: an old lady, aged somewhere around 94 years old, now a statistic— a “new Covid-19 case”, because she has tested positive after a routine hospital check. In reality, that old lady has no symptoms at all, though she has lived, I am told, with several other serious medical conditions, and for some years.
That person is now part of the panicdemic narrative and will probably show up very soon in the official statistics, as part of the “second wave”, but what has changed, in reality? Nothing.
The “@amy_amorie” account is one of the best on Twitter.
Pretty poor, as with previous alumni matches this Christmas. I did far better than either team. Amazing how ignorant many of these “respected commentators”, TV journalists, novelists etc, are.

It is very strange that all or virtually all the Twitter accounts of Jews, that I have seen, are very much pro-“lockdown”, the facemask nonsense etc, just as they are for censorship, and the prohibition of “unapproved” opinion. I do not know why that should be, unless it is something ingrained…
Cyprus was better under British rule. Having said that, the lack of freedom is becoming widespread in the UK too, now.
Many will empathize with “@Amy_amorie”; there is a pervasive brainwashed society all around us.
The present UK Government is a Jewish-lobby, finance-capitalist cabal. On that premise, the importation of millions more unwanted migrant-invaders is almost guaranteed…
Ah, Cohen…I wonder what kind of “person” that is?…
Along the same lines, I was watching the TV game show Only Connect [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Only_Connect] yesterday. At one point, a clue involved the Shakespeare play The Two Gentlemen of Verona, and the accompanying picture showed two blacks!
And nowhere has her misrule been more damaging than in Germany itself.
In a nutshell…(see below):
“The head of the WHO emergencies program, Dr Mike Ryan, said: “The likely scenario is the virus will become another endemic virus that will remain somewhat of a threat, but a very low-level threat in the context of an effective global vaccination program.“
Went to Waitrose. Slightly busier than usual in the evenings. Still a black-clad and mask-wearing Handmaid’s Tale militiaman stationed by the entrance, presumably to deter non-wearers of facemasks.
Later, watched this evening’s alumni match of University Challenge, this time the Courtauld Institute against St. John’s, Oxford. Once again, both teams not much good, in fact downright poor. I certainly did better than both. An Indian woman called, I think, Ghoswami, was notably poor (she thought that Baku might be the most northerly major city of China, among other hopeless answers!); as for the other team, a Jewish woman called Klein knew almost nothing, though admittedly she did correctly identify a painting by Veronese which I thought was probably by Raphael.
While I myself am not a member or, as such, “supporter” of “Patriotic Alternative”, I feel that these mostly young people are basically on the right lines. A political party is one route, setting up community or communities is another; there are other ways too. Those routes are not opposed to each other but complementary, like the fronts in a major military campaign or war.
Out of 150,000+ tweets and retweets posted over a number of years, and about 100 complained of by those Jews, a mere 7 (SEVEN!) were thought to be “grossly offensive” by the BSB and so formed the basis for the quasi-trial (Bar Disciplinary Tribunal hearing) in October 2016.
In fact, the allegedly offensive tweets were reduced in number at hearing to only 5 (FIVE). Out of 150,000+…Over 6 years of Twitter membership.
My point here is other, to wit that my tweets, all general comments about society and politics, were true in all particulars. One, at which the Tribunal took particular offence, was that Michael Gove [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Gove] was “a pro-Israel, pro-Jew expenses cheat“. That was deemed “grossly offensive” despite the fact that the facts alleged by me were, in fact, facts.
In other words, I was condemned for having tweeted the truth. Where is the greater offence, the crimes or defaults of a politician, or the tweets posted and which commented on those defaults?
I might add that, in 2016, the general public was not aware (neither was I) that snivelling Jewish-lobby puppet Gove was (is?) also a regular cocaine abuser.
The other four tweets which sank me at Tribunal were also all true…
Truth is often no defence in the public-private politically correct and Zionist-dominated police state of 2020 Britain.
What should be done with Professor Ferguson and others?
Bicycle riders are a nuisance, especially in the semi-rural English coastal area where I live; dark clothing, often no lights, usually no street lighting. Having said that, car drivers are often very negligent too.
My own niece, an Australian citizen working temporarily in West London, was knocked off her pushbike early in the year, and was lucky not to have been badly injured. The “accident” happened at an intersection where she had the right of way. The driver briefly stopped , then sped off. The police (who could have seized cctv evidence from nearby businesses, but did not), were useless. The hit-and-run driver, probably a non-European, has never been traced, identified, or punished.
I agree with Hitchens on the liberty point (not to have to wear helmets) but it is true that many have lost their lives by reason of not having been wearing helmets.
Ig told me that his nephew had suddenly fallen down at home (in the Caversham Park suburb close to the monitoring station; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caversham_Park_Village); he later died. Ig was (unwarrantedly) suspicious of the nephew’s girlfriend, with whom the deceased had recently had a child; mother and baby also lived in the house.
Ig seemed to think that the young woman, a Ukrainian in her twenties, might have had a drunken argument with the nephew, and hit him with something. There had been a head injury, but the police were not treating it as suspicious.
Having heard of the deceased nephew (and having once briefly met him in London, several years before these events), I was aware that he was a fairly heavy drinker. On the night of the death he had apparently taken a fairly considerable amount of drink at the bar within the monitoring centre.
Anyway, I attended the inquest held in Reading, though only as observer (I was at the time not yet Called to the Bar). Ig had instructed Counsel, a fairly confident young woman whose name escapes me but who made a career at the Bar (I used to see her around the Inns in later years).
The inquest was a rather sad waste of time, as many are. The trail seemed to have gone cold.
However, some weeks after that, the report of the inquest, printed in the local newspaper, brought forth a bus driver who declared that he had been driving his bus one evening when a cyclist, not stopping where a cycle path met the road, and the man not wearing a helmet, had shot across in front of the bus, which had stopped short; the cyclist had, despite not having been struck, fallen off onto the road. He had been helped up, and had continued on his way, obviously somewhat the worse for drink.
So there it was. No espionage connection, no drunken domestic argument and assault, just a somewhat intoxicated man who fell off a pushbike and was not wearing a safety helmet. His choice, his accident, his death.
Had two relatively rare pleasures, one being traditional fish and chips, the other being a glass or so of Royal Tokay. The fish and chips was the first I had had for months, the Tokay (5 putts.) the first for at least 10 years. Both very pleasant.
At the same time, I saw University Challenge, another alumni match (Durham and Downing College, Cambridge). As on previous occasions, I did better than both teams. In a sense, that pleases me, but in another sense it displeases me (that highly-paid and respected broadcasters, scribblers and others are so damned ignorant in this country!).

BBC World Service
Woke up to some interminable BBC World Service Outlook programme, based around a black girl with sickle cell anaemia. Next up was something called Witness History, which might have been better entitled Witless History. Basically, more anti-white, anti-European propaganda, this time based around the history of UNESCO, and featuring an angry, shouting UN career “diplomat” from Senegal.
The World Service continues to be very poor.
Humanity is still at the beginning of its evolution.
Blogging, like tweeting, is mainly a waste of time and effort. Maybe 99% a waste (the blog; tweeting, 99.9%!)). I blog and will continue to do so, not because of that 99%, but because of the 1%.
“In your nothing I hope to find my everything” [Goethe, Faust; Faust to Mephistopheles]
As Peter Hitchens has written, Ukraine has been at the centre of many of the conflicts of the past century. Bolshevism, the White Guard, the Russian Civil War, Collectivization, Lebensraum, the war of 1941-45 etc.
During the Second World War, many Ukrainians supported the German invasion, as they had the German anti-Bolshevik occupation after the First World War.
Now we have a situation which has developed from that where the old Soviet Union collapsed and, understandably, after 70 years of Sovietism and/or war, many Ukrainians felt that they would be better off independent of Russia, an aim of many since the 19th Century.
Sadly, many of the hopes of the Ukrainians were dashed in the 1990s and thereafter. Corruption, poverty, gangsterism, and a wave of Jewish carpetbaggers arriving from the USA and elsewhere. I even saw that some Jewess from Maida Vale (the area of London where I spent most time over the years) had bought a confectionary factory there!
Now, Ukraine’s President, Prime Minister, and other top figures are Jews! One is even a Israeli citizen!
Ukraine was the germ of Russia itself. The Vikings or “Varangians”, as they are known in Russia, sailed down the great rivers of that part of the world (Don, Dniepr, Volga etc) and founded Kievan Rus, which is where Russia began, along with Novgorod: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27.
Ukraine and Russia have always developed together. Not always in great harmony, but always together. That partnership is now fragile and under attack.
The Crimea was placed administratively under the control of the Soviet republic of Ukraine in 1954: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crimea. The population, though, is mainly Russian (65%; Ukrainians 15%; Crimean Tartars 10%; others 10%).
The Russian reassertion of sovereignty in 2014 was opposed by “the West” (NWO), which since then has completely taken over “independent” Ukraine and is building a great naval base on territory controlled by the Kiev government.
As Peter Hitchens says, these “NATO” (NWO) incursions are a direct threat to Russia, to its integrity and future. As Hitchens notes, imagine what would happen if the Russians did something similar in the Gulf of Mexico…
We may be looking here at the genesis of World War Three. At the same time, “NATO” forces are engaged in military exercises both in Ukraine and in the Baltic states.
Without Ukraine at least as neutral, Russia, as a near-superpower, is no longer in existence. Indeed, it would be not very viable, long-term, as a state at all, especially looking at the slow infiltration of Chinese influence in the Eastern part of Siberia (the former Soviet Far East).
Russia may be relatively poor compared to the USA and the EU, but it has both nuclear and non-nuclear forces which can match the “West”. Yes, the USA can destroy Russian cities and bases ten times over, and it is not known for sure whether the Russians can destroy the similar America targets ten times over, five times, or only once! Is there any difference?
In fact, were, say, New York, Washington DC, Seattle, LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Boston to be destroyed, would the USA even be able to function? Would it take 10 years to recover? 50? 100?
This is a road better not travelled down.
Tweets seen today
I do not often agree with Maajid Nawaz, but…
One of the best Twitter accounts.
Exactly. The US Constitution is largely anachronistic and ineffective. Also, this is not a debate; it is a war. So far, mostly a cold war. So far.
A very important tweet. Had I the money, I would buy a country estate. I notice, incidentally, that the supply of such estates in the UK has lessened in the past couple of years. The wealthy are trying to buy lifeboats…
Quite. I thought, earlier in 2020, that to create new hospitals was a great achievement even bearing in mind their limited aims and equipment etc, but now I wonder whether those “Nightingale Hospitals” were just part of a propaganda “big lie”…
Just as the most enthusiastic supporters of mass media and social media censorship now are those who, in the past, would have fought for liberty: journalists, MPs, published authors etc.
The Jewish influence in society (and especially in the mass media and the legal profession) is a large part of all this.
My own I.Q. was once (long ago!) tested at 156, which is considered high, the global average being taken to be 100. The average for UK university students is supposed to be 125 (though I am citing a figure from the 1980s, before “everyone and his dog” went to a “university”, so the average for students must surely be lower now…). I believe that the British “dating club for eggheads”, MENSA, takes candidates with I.Q. levels above 140 or 142 (I cannot recall exactly, offhand).
That Christopher Langan biog. is an interesting read in terms of the “Nature v. nurture” debate. As Wikipedia notes, it is interesting to speculate as to whether Langan would have had a very different (easier? Less turbulent?) life had he had such background (and family wealth) as the Jewish scientist, Oppenheimer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Robert_Oppenheimer].
Hard for the sort of mediocre, self-describing “Left” Twitter-twits and/or Jews often noticed to describe someone such as Langan as “a knuckledragger”, but no doubt many would still do it. They certainly do it to other intelligent and well-educated social-national people; they have done it even to me! Fortunately, such ignorant critics are irrelevant both to me and general society.
High IQ is better than low, but high morality (in the sense of the Good, or compassion etc) is more important, or equally important; perhaps more important. We are used to thinking, perhaps from popular thrillers etc, of “clever” and “bad” as going together, whereas “bad” often goes with stupidity, in fact. The future must be both “clever” and “good”.
Nature v. nurture. A debate which has been lively since the time of Darwin, and arguably since much earlier times. The Jesuits said, following no less than Aristotle, “give me the child until he is seven, and I shall give you the man.”
Rudolf Steiner was right to place education in the forefront of society. The German National Socialists, with very different aims and methods, did the same. As did the Soviet Union. None was 100% “right” in terms of what was done. Even Waldorf (Rudolf Steiner) schools are subject to criticism, sometimes ill-founded, sometimes not.
Whatever one may say about different forms of education, there is no doubt that, in the wider sense (meaning upbringing from birth, as well as more formal education), it is key to the future of the whole world.
People vary widely in their abilities. It should be the job of educationalists to discover what abilities a child has, and then to nurture them, both for the good of the child and for the good of society. Vocational dissatisfaction is at the root of many of the ills of society.
Also, it is not just a matter of stuffing the child with as much knowledge as possible, important as that may be. “EQ” (emotional intelligence) must run alongside I.Q. This idea is not new. After all, in exaggerated form it appears in Tom Brown’s Schooldays:
That formula, however, all but chucks out the idea of “IQ” and an education of facts. It is more akin to the basic National Socialist education of 1930s Germany. Not for nothing did Hitler admire the Boy Scout and Girl Guide movement of Baden Powell, and emulate it via the Hitlerjugend and Bund Deutscher Mädel.
The better ideal takes into account both the formation of intellect and the formation of character, including that of helping others: Durch Mitleid wissen (“Through compassion to knowledge”, the motto of the Knights of the Grail).
I wish that the “educational debate” in the UK were more about the themes noted above, and less about meaningless “grades”, “degrees” etc; and far less about “equality” (whether absolute or “of opportunity”).
I wonder what it would take to “raise the sense of personal threat” felt by members of “SAGE” (aka “DUMB”, the Department Under Matt and Boris”)? Or MPs, for that matter…
Of course, many MPs have contracted “the virus” and are still around. Are they incapable of learning?
Britain at the end of 2020
Yes, that is right. As Hitchens says; 1998, not 1997, I think. I remember reading about it, in an overpriced Sunday Times bought when I was living in Alexandria in early 1998.
Peace at any price…in 1997, the USA had its own agenda anyway. From the USA, the UK seems very much a sideshow (part of Europe/Eurasia), so Northern Ireland is “a sideshow of a sideshow”…
Ten persons, only two (or —unclear—four) of whom are white Northern Europeans. Britain’s crippled near future?
That sort of pseudo-SWAT militia is more now in evidence than previously. In the 1990s, they were mainly seen around Heathrow, often with smug semi-smiles on their faces. I often used to wonder what would happen in the event of a real terrorist outrage. Would the “robocops” really open fire with their Heckler & Kock MP5s? In a crowded terminal?! As seen often on Twitter, “genuine question”…
Having driven extensively in both Greece and Turkey (and in the Northern part of Cyprus), I am both unsurprised and (because I like the tweets of “European Housewife”) disinclined to comment!
I remember tweeter “Manon des sources” from when I had a Twitter account. She used to retweet my tweets occasionally.
Ah. If it is true that Ferguson is talking with (conspiring with?) Blair, then it becomes clear why Ferguson is still given a clear run on the BBC…
There has been a backlash, though. I notice that in Hampshire, where I live, the police command has decided to close a number of the local police Twitter accounts. Most were in fact interesting and informative, but I saw a couple which were obviously out of control. One was (it is not now tweeting and will be closed within a week or so) “@WatersideCops”, covering the western shoreline areas of the Solent, close to Southampton. That Twitter account was always pumping out propaganda about various things, particularly “racism” against “Roma” gypsies and so-called “travellers”, i.e. the caravan-dwellers once known as “tinkers”. Ironic, in view of the crime profile of the area (and areas around).
Often, though not always, civilian employees of the police are to blame for nonsensical tweeting.
Oh well…”Waterside Cops” will soon have to stop tweeting nonsense and start doing their real job better.
[Update, 2 January 2021: as of 29 December 2020, “Waterside Cops” were still threatening people who mocked their silly tweets! See below:
Nothing since then, so it looks as though the above silly and impotent tweet, posted not long before midnight —hm…—, will be the swansong of “Waterside Cops” on Twitter. Byeee!]
I suppose that I should not say more at present about the continuing persecution of the singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, the complaints against whom (like the malicious Jew-Zionist complaint made against me in 2017) have mostly been made by the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” in the person of Stephen Silverman of South Essex. Alison comes up for trial at the end of March 2021.
One has to ask, in general terms, how it is that a tiny fanatical pressure group has in recent years exercized such influence over the police of London, Essex, Derbyshire etc. Also, how it is that these Israel-fanatics are apparently welcome on LBC, Sky News etc. Well, I suppose that it depends on the (((political editors))) and on their (((bias)))…
Well, Enoch was right, in principle, about mass immigration, but as to mental hospitals, may or may not have been right. It is a complex problem. I agree, though, that he was, for all his erudition, often vain and silly.
Watched that excellent film, Waterloo. Rod Steiger is amazing as Napoleon, the man who changed the face of Europe even in defeat.
While watching I drank (probably too much) “blackstrap”, a mixture of cognac and port. A drink almost forgotten today, but which, before the First World War, was considered the drink of the Life Guards (officers) and (as and when permitted) Eton.
A good and warming drink, when taken in moderation.
10,000 truckers waiting to cross the Channel have now been tested for “the virus”. Only 24 have tested positive. About 1 in every 500. That should wake people up, but will not. The hysteria is ingrained now. Almost a full year of fear propaganda has had its effect. Having said that, I detect less of a sharp edge in the public mood.
When “the virus” was thought of as a kind of Black Death, in the Spring of 2020, there was a palpable feeling of real fear about. Now, that fear has evolved into more of a mere background effect, which is kept “revving” by the constant official and msm propaganda (which includes the facemask nonsense).
As is not infrequent, the early broadcasting was ghastly today. A platitudinous Prayer for the Day by some priestess-bishop, then a full half hour about the South Downs by a singer of whom I had never heard, one Frank Turner. How can someone who sings so out of tune be a professional singer?! Painful. I looked him up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Turner.
I wonder whether he is in line for £10,000-£100,000 of public money…
The reality of the “panicdemic” is never shown on the msm. The reality is that, so far, while —worldwide— over a million people have died “with” the virus, that is after all one million out of eight thousand million people on Earth. About one death for every eight thousand people. Which puts the matter into perspective, or should.
True, the ratio is much higher in the UK, about one death out of every 1,400 inhabitants. The principle applies, though.
“The virus” has now been around (as far as we know) for nearly a year now.
The British public have been subjected to pressures rarely known in modern times: fear propaganda, toytown police state action, legally probably-invalid “laws”, “rules” and “advice” (all deliberately conflated). Crucially, the public has “had its mouth stuffed with gold” to buy off criticism of all this. Key medical staff such as doctors have been given pay rises of over 4%, well above inflation. Employees and some self-employed have been “furloughed” on what amounts to, for many, full net pay. Even the unemployed and working poor not furloughed have been given a small but useful Universal Credit boost of an extra £20 a week.
All of those measures, now extended into 2021, have softened the blows of the economic shutdown (which is what “lockdowns” and “tiers of restriction” are).
It would be naive to imagine that such a situation is sustainable indefinitely, even though with “national debt” being created at very low interest rates, it is, for the moment, sustainable.
It will be interesting to see how the UK economy does post-Brexit. If not well, there will open up a real opportunity for social nationalism, but that cannot happen while the population is being cushioned in terms of personal finance. To put it one way, only when the population starts to suffer, and seeks a way out, will such an opportunity be realizable. As Lenin once said, “worse will be better”.
The newspaper-journalistic trade (nb. not “profession”, not “vocation”) has no future because most of its present practitioners are semi-literate idiots, and most of the rest are dishonest and in the pocket of the Jewish-Zionist element.
Ferguson obviously “knows the right people”, the magic carpet of contemporary Britain (cf. Dido Harding etc, not to mention, in the past, Boris-idiot).
“Guest“? That seems unnecessarily polite…
I suggested some time ago that Trump stick it to various groups by using his unfettered right to pardon while he still can. So far he has started by pardoning a few cronies, as well as the murderous and stupid Blackwater mercenaries.
What Trump should do now is pardon all social-national prisoners doing time in Federal prisons. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of them. Some are doing life sentences or are even on Death Row. I imagine that they would be most grateful to Trump were he to pardon them. He may need a few friends soon. I suspect that, like “Condor” in “Three Days of the Condor” (a favourite film), Trump is “about to become a very lonely man“…
Pardon Julian Assange and Edward Snowden too.
Another scene from Three Days of the Condor:
A few more tweets seen
That tweet, above, pretty much sums up the total unreality of the self-describing “Left” in today’s UK. The whole country should, she thinks, be “locked down”. For a month? Six months? A year? In perpetuity? Until a vaccine or cure is around and covers all mutations etc?
The pseudo-socialist supporters of open-ended “lockdown” are also almost always in favour of open borders, greatly increased pay, benefits and services (including NHS services) etc. They imagine that some form of magical economics can square that circle. They are basically socio-politico-economic lunatics.
Such self-describing “Left” “socialists” (I myself never use “Right” and “Left”) are in a world of complete delusion, in which, inter alia, the usual rules of economics, commonsense and real life generally are suspended just for them.
In that crazy world of their own delusions, millions of non-Europeans (most entirely unskilled) can flood in, breed, be given housing, medical services, money etc. At the same time, all struggling English/British people will be paid more and/or get decent State benefits instead of the present inadequate ones.
In that world, everyone will have whatever education, NHS services, transport etc, they want or need, all for free or very cheaply. All sorts of other nice things will also be available freely.
The best trick of all? That all of the above can be provided despite the economy having been all but shut down for months or even years!
Well, obviously, such people are basically mad politically, economically etc. They are the same people who think that Corbyn and McDonnell had something to offer the UK electorate and that Corbyn was going to be Prime Minister.
The weird thing there is that they could see that the Jew-Zionist element in the msm and online was attacking Corbyn and Labour relentlessly, yet continued to support the Jew Zionists in their “holocaust” and (supposed) “antifascist” campaigns. The pseudo-socialists supported and still support the very tribe that killed off their beloved Corbyn’s chances!
Well, I am not a psychiatrist…
Most of those silly people are still desperately tweeting in favour of the UK being in the EU! Yes, they all, or almost all, support the finance-capitalist EU concept as well. No wonder that many of them have mental problems!
So Blake died. A interesting character. A believer (in many things, serially). I blame not Blake for his treachery, to put it that way, but the naive British, who thought that all that was necessary to turn a half-Jew (half-Jew, half-Dutch), born in Rotterdam and brought up mainly in Egypt, into a “British gentleman” was a better suit, better shoes, a change of name (from Behar to true-blue “Blake”), and a position in the Foreign Office (and, covertly, SIS). Wrong…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Blake].
Not that more obviously British people are necessarily more reliable, as witness the so-called “Magnificent Five” or “Velikolepnaya Pyaterka” headed by Kim Philby; Philby, though, was part-, I think quarter, Indian, his mother, Dora, being a so-called “chi-chi” (Anglo-Indian mixed-race).
Admittedly, that was not so in the case of Maclean, Burgess, Blunt, and Cairncross. In their cases, as also with Philby, we have to look at the influence, in the 1930s, of what has been called “the dummy intellectuality” of Marxism-Leninism.
Still, if “Blake” was to have been recruited at all, it should have been as agent, not officer.
Mink are also living creatures, but if it has to be done, to save the indigenous animals…
It might be said that I should not write about ordinary political matters on Christmas Day, but the news having just been announced yesterday about Brexit, a few more words are needed.
As I said yesterday, “Boris” has decided to put on the mask of a tragi-comic Chamberlain rather than a tragi-comic Churchill. He says now that he has, belatedly, delivered Brexit. Of sorts, arguably. It is all rather underwhelming.
This goes beyond BRINO (Brexit In Name Only) but not very far beyond.
Having said that, the agreement has pretty much shot Farage’s fox as far as the EU is concerned. I think that, though opposition to EU norms will continue on the fringes, this means the end of Brexit and EU matters as central in UK political discourse. Effectively the end of 20 years of Brexit/EU being political drivers in the UK.
To a large extent, the agreement has also shot Labour’s fox re. the EU, too. Labour under Keir Starmer has become almost invisible. Unsurprising. Starmer-Labour has, with minor carping, supported the “Conservative” Government on almost every issue in the past year, from the “virus” messaging and the facemask nonsense to Brexit. It seems that that support will now continue in the Commons vote on this agreement (next week, unless delayed). The agreement will thus be approved, with minor rebellions on the fringes.
As far as the general public is concerned, this agreement will draw a line under Brexit, politically.
The agreement seems to cover most of the factors important in the public mind, such as (by implication) the Roma gypsy element looting the UK from foreign bases, and also the low-paid foreign workers, Poles etc, coming to the UK as of right; the food standards now staying where they are (because the UK will not drop below EU norms, so no American chlorinated chicken etc).
It looks as though animal welfare in farming etc is covered (the UK is ahead of most of the EU states in that respect anyway).
Yes, there are sacrifices made: the fishing part is not very good for the UK, though at least there will not be the first Anglo-French naval engagements, in the Channel, since Napoleonic times. Britain’s fishermen have been, to some extent, sacrificed for the wider good. That means that the head has ruled the heart, fishing being only 1% of the UK’s GDP.
Also, British people will (or may) find it less convenient to live or work in EU states, though most live rather than work (retired people etc) and that happened even before the UK joined the original EEC in 1973, though on a smaller scale. People just had to apply for a carte de sejour in France, and the equivalent elsewhere.
There will be some grumbling about this from both “Brexiteers” and Remainers but, as a major political issue, Brexit has been finally put to bed.

Interesting tweet thread
A Pleasant Terror… Well worth watching…
Goodnight, and wishing well all who wish me well. Meine Ehre heisst Treue…
Jew-Zionist activist Rachel Riley interviewed about “Internet trolls”. Wants users of Twitter etc to have to use their real names. Other Jewish Zionists are pushing the same line; Margaret Hodge for one.
In a sense, I am not completely against that idea. When I was on Twitter (2010-2018, though I only started to tweet prolifically from 2011 or 2012), I had only one account, and that account was under my own name (“@ianrmillard“).
I can only suppose that Kamm wanted to present himself as the “important” person who therefore has “trolls” attacking him. I rather see it the other way round: I cannot recall ever sending any tweet or other message to Kamm, but I seem to recall him tweeting once or twice about me…It’s several years ago now, but I am sure that Kamm was either mistaken or lying. Call it what you will.
Kamm also, as usual, called himself, in that newspaper comment, “a near-absolutist on free speech” but commended my disbarment for having posted a few tweets! I was disbarred for having tweeted FIVE tweets (out of 150,000+ posted from 2010-2016).
All those five tweets were general comments about society; none was addressed to any person directly, and I think that only two persons were mentioned by name. One was Michael Gove, whom I called something like “a pro-Jew, pro-Israel, expenses cheat“. That was true in all particulars and was known to be true even in 2016. I was unaware at the time that snivelling Gove was or is also a cocaine abuser.
Gove has never sued me, and has never threatened to sue me, incidentally.
The main irony of Jewish persons such as Rachel Riley and Margaret Hodge calling for all tweeters (etc) to use their own names and so be identifiable online, is that most of the worst Jew (and/or “antifa”) trolls on Twitter use pseudonyms in order to troll people. I was (and still am) a victim of all that, as are many others.
It took a lot of effort for persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz and others to identify some of the most disgusting and sadistic Jew-Zionist trolls, such as Stephen Silverman and Stephen Applebaum of the fake charity known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism”. Those two now tweet mainly under their own names, via “@ssilvuk” and “grubstreetsteve”, though Applebaum is still tweeting occasionally via “@rattus2384”.
I cannot be bothered to list all the Jewish and/or “antifa” trolls on Twitter using pseudonyms. Many.
Reverting to the Today Programme, as usual its bias showed clearly. Unlike many of its interviewees, Rachel Riley was interviewed almost absurdly respectfully, certainly not questioned closely about her demands.
Some fellow called Bruce Stacey, a supposed expert on social media, was also interviewed, and referred to “the American notion of free speech“!
“American notion“?! Unbelievable. So speaketh “the experts”!
Of course, the real reason the likes of Margaret Hodge etc want people to tweet only under their own names is so that persons critical of Jewish and Israeli behaviour can be more easily persecuted and, indeed, prosecuted. However, it may be that we have to stand up and be counted. Stand up for European life, people, and standards!
Boris the poundland Chamberlain
Very recently, I blogged about how Boris-idiot would play either the poundland Chamberlain, waving his piece of paper and proclaiming “peace in our time (with the EU)“, or the poundland Churchill, shaking his fist at the EU and proclaiming “we shall never surrender (to the EU)“. Well, looks like “Chamberlain” won…
No, you can’t. Because I own 100% of the business, I host everything myself, and I import my tea from abroad, so good luck finding my supplier and then convincing a nationalist country that nationalism is bad.
Saw this clip from 1967, showing the Buckinghamshire station (Denham Golf Club Halt) from which I travelled daily into London for 6 months in 2001-2002:
A good service. Only about 20 minutes to Marylebone with one stop en route (Denham). In those days (2001-2002) they even had a small First Class bit at the back (sadly now discontinued, or so I read somewhere).
In the morning, waiting for the one train that stopped there, there were always the same half-dozen or so people, who always stood in their accustomed positions on the little platform (as did I, mainly because the only First Class bit was a sectioned-off third of the rear coach).
“Peace in our time with the EU”… Ursula von der Leyen looks pleased, as if she has won…I suppose that both sides would say that this was not a zero sum game. All the same, I wonder…
Christmas greetings to all well-intentioned readers of my blog.
Christmas greetings to all British and European people.
“The Sun’s Dr Carol Cooper said a shortage of staff meant the Nightingales had no chance of ever hitting capacity.“
“NHS England said while three were on standby, Manchester was open for “non-Covid care”, Exeter and Harrogate as “specialist diagnostics centres”, and Bristol for “local NHS services”.” [The Sun]
In other words, there is no “virus” “crisis”. Yes, huge numbers of people in the UK are infected, but for the vast majority that means nothing, because they either have no symptoms or mild symptoms.
White people under 70 years of age are under little threat.
The real agenda, behind the public health aspects, is becoming pretty obvious to at least the thinking minority.
Why? Because there is, effectively, no Opposition, just a shadow official Opposition under Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer (who has just nominated a Jewess from the “Board of Deputies of British Jews” as a Life Peer). However, the real, or underlying, reason that the UK now has an incompetent dystopian “elected” dictatorship is because the British people are asleep.
Well, I see her point, but the amounts she mentions, totalled and then divided among 300+ million Americans, come to only about USD $6 each! Not very much.
…and look at the lack of self-awareness in that tweeter, “James Houghton”! Favours dictatorial “lockdowns” etc, yet has a Twitter profile “Freedom Fighter, Libertarian, Deep Thinker, Aspergers Spectrum“… What can one say?
New Zealand is an object study in how a people unwilling to apply their minds to socio-political issues, and who think that the important things are whether or not their sports teams can win rugby or cricket (or whatever) games on the other side of the world, and virtue-signalling, imprison themselves by not bothering their heads with “politics”.
As a result, a near-lunatic is voted into office and continues to pursue a globalist multikulti agenda which will eventually create a dystopian hellhole out of what was a quite positive society with an optimistic future.
There are evil traitors embedded in such organizations.
Yet Alison Chabloz so far remains on trial (set down for 30 and 31 March 2021) merely for mild remarks made when a guest on an Internet “radio” podcast panel discussion…
The problem that the “Free Speech Union” has is that it is just unwilling to identify the main enemy of free speech in the UK as the Jew-Zionist element and, being unwilling to speak the truth as to that, the FSU is weakened, very much.
The FSU’s Nelsonian eye turned toward Alison Chabloz and others (including me) makes its “defend free speech” stance not terribly credible.
Yes, I am now recently 64, and can just remember both the last few steam trains of the early 1960s and the fuss around the Beeching cuts (though the only trains I ever travelled on in those days were the expresses between Reading and London (only used by me about twice per year, eg at Christmas to visit Hamley’s etc with my mother), so I never saw the branch lines, as far as I can recall.
No-one under my age, from their own recollection, knows about the rail network Britain once had, which started to be cut back between the two world wars, was cut back further in the 1950s, and then all but finished off by the 1960s Beeching “reforms”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeching_cuts.
After the First World War, Britain had over 23,000 miles of track; by 1960, there still existed about 18,000 miles. In 2020, there remain about 10,000 miles of track.
The above is not a full picture, because many branch lines had a relatively few miles of track.
What has amazed me is that Government and its civil service must have known that (not necessarily because of “the virus”; maybe because of Brexit problems etc) there might well be a log-jam of trucks in Kent, yet it seems that even at Manston airfield, no contingency plans were made for water, emergency food, sanitation…What a bunch of total clowns!
I wonder how true that is. If it is basically correct, then those social-national-sympathizing police should not be wasting their time issuing puerile death threats against stray nuisances, and making online comments, but should be keeping their powder dry, recruiting more people, and organizing quietly and secretly for when the right time may come.

Yes. My (small, pleasant) nearest hospital (semi-rural coastal Hampshire) had, at one time three (yes, 3) patients with “the virus” and, more recently, about two weeks ago, seven (7). That’s out of a total district council area population of 180,000 spread over 291 square miles. 95% of the population is “white British” (and nearly 3% “white Other”). As against that, the age demographic is quite high.
True, there are other, larger, hospitals not very far away (Bournemouth and Southampton, both within 25 miles distance) but even so it is clear that few people in the wider area are infected or at least symptomatic to the extent that they need hospitalization.
Much of the Western world has gone crazy and I do not believe that the public health issue is the main reason for that. Think “Great Reset”. Think 2022, and the 33-year cycle.
I interpret that as I have been suggesting for some time: the Conservative Party is winning, just about, by default. The Jewish mass media have stopped attacking Labour (because the Zionists achieved their objective of recapturing Labour and dumping Corbyn), but that alone is not enough to put Labour into the lead.
In a sense, remarkable, when you look at the sleaze and incompetence of the Boris-idiot government of fools.
Labour is not really being an Opposition. All it is doing is saying “we want stricter lockdown, more facemask nonsense, blah blah”.
There is no legitimate Government, and no real Opposition.
I first encountered “Happy Holidays” when I first lived in the USA, in the winter of 1989-1990. Basically a Jewish idea, i.e. to give “Hannukka” the same billing as Christmas on the public stage. Also thrown in as makeweight was the ludicrous invented “celebration” called Kwanza [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwanzaa].
When logic and fact meet fear and a brainwashed mind, logic and factual reality have no chance…
Don’t agree that the Western world should cease to exist or function because 1 out of 1,500 or 2,000 people are dying with “the virus”? Then you are callous, stupid, ignorant, and/or even a murderer. Or something…
Speaking of reality v. unreality, I heard a truly absurd piece on the BBC World Service a few days ago. Some black preacher expressing the view that Jesus Christ was a black African or at least “black”, whose parents came to Palestine “as refugees from North Africa“! As said on many previous occasions, the whole UK msm, and especially the BBC, needs a real cultural purge.
Here (below) is a supposedly Welsh tweeter, tweeting under the name “Sion Gruffudd”, and who seems to be a complete doormat for the Jewish lobby (or maybe is a Jew, tweeting under “Welsh” cover; I don’t know):
If you said that you wanted to feed Jews to the dogs, or any named Jew, the police would probably be at your door, and/or you might end up on trial (like Alison Chabloz) under the notorious Communications Act 2003, s.127. Will that happen to “Sion Gruffudd”? I doubt it…
Virtually all the tweets of “Sion Gruffudd” are about Jews and Israel. No need to bother more with it…
“.…Professor of History Carroll Quigley (1910-1977) of Harvard, Princeton and Georgetown Universities in America…wrote a book entitled The Tragedy and Hope (1966) which discloses an international bankers’ plan to control the world from behind the political and financial scenes. Quigley claimed that the planning by billionaires to establish a dictatorship of the super-rich disguised as workers and socially concerned democracies was already well-advanced even by the middle 1960s. Something that would be dismissed today as a “conspiracy theory” by the university departments sponsored by the likes of Facebook, Google, YouTube and Soros; beholden as they are to an elitist cadre of alumni who fund their research, and who are monitored by the Stasi-like Equality & Diversity units who enforce ‘right-think’ with an enthusiasm that matches Mao’s Red Guard during the Cultural Revolution in China.”
“This is a situation that can no longer go unchallenged by those who truly advocate for diversity of thought and intellectual rigour based on the right to open and unrestricted debate within our education system.”
Alternatively, the Spanish authorities can, though not immediately, build up the ports of Bilbao and Santander. At present (or until recently) there was only one ro-ro ferry per week from Santander to Plymouth. I believe one per week Bilbao-Portsmouth too. If that were changed to 5 per day from each port, France could be sidelined. It takes longer to get to the UK from Spain, naturally, but taking the road trip Spain-Channel ports into account, not much longer.
Of course, were cruel kosher/kashrut and halal slaughter to be banned in the UK, quite a few Muslims and Jews might feel impelled to leave the UK. “Oh dear, what a pity, never mind”…
I see that “the virus” has even made its way to Antarctica (a Chilean base there). Hopefully the one person who (last year, I think) accessed my blog from Antarctica will not be hit by it (I am presuming that he —or she?— is an English speaker, but could still be Chilean, of course).
Frankly, I think that Hitchens is too kind to “Boris”. Don Corleone at least had a sense of strategy, a sense of loyalty and, in his own way, a sense of honour. I see none of that in the unpleasant clown posing presently as Prime Minister.
Still this “angels on a pinhead” “Right” and “Left” stuff…Who is “Right” or “far Right”, and who is “Left”? What a dull exercise! Concentrate on policy and intention. Leave that fruitless exercise and deal with realities.
I am often critical of (some) farmers and of both their behaviour and attitudes, but it is not an unmixed picture by any means.
It becomes very obvious that “the virus” is being used, being weaponized. Coronavirus or “Covid-19” has killed about 1 out of every 1,400 people in the UK. More accurately, it has killed 1 out of every 1,400 people, who have mostly been over 80 and who mostly had several other serious conditions. Even leaving all that aside, it still means that 1,399 people out of 1,400 in the UK have either not had “Covid-19”, or have had it and survived (usually without ever having noticed that they were infected).
International organizations, such as the World Economic Forum, have openly proclaimed the virus situation as an “opportunity” for a “Great Reset” of world society.
The populations of Europe, USA etc are being taken for a ride.
“Ain’t that the truth?”…not only about Jewish talking head Portes, though. The general point is also true. Fake or supposed “professors” are everywhere now. At one time, “Professor” was an esteemed rank or title. Now? Well, of course every tertiary educational institute, however basic, is now a “university”. “Universities” need or anyway have “professors”. So now we have not only “grade inflation” and “award inflation”, but also “title inflation”. “Professors” are two a penny these days.
That’s not to say that Portes is always wrong about everything; he was right, imo, about the wrongheadedness of most if not all of the policies pursued by George Osborne, 2010-2015.
Ha ha! Lammy must have been a crap barrister! Unintentional admission implied?
As for the “professionalism” no doubt claimed by “Prevent” and its practitioners or employees, I believe that there are no Israeli settlements in Gaza; not even the most determined anti-Zionists claim that! So not terribly impressive that “Prevent” gets even basic and unargued facts wrong…Unless, of course, Channel 4 changed “West Bank” to “Gaza”.
Unintentionally amusing. Could be applied to one of the biggest —and unproven— “conspiracy theories” of all— the “holocaust” “gas chambers”…
Exactly. Jewish lobby puppet Starmer wants even more “lockdown”, shutdown and facemask nonsense. He’s as much of a waste of space as “Boris”…
“NWO” and “ZOG” pretty much covers the waterfront… Add in “the Great Reset” and “Great Replacement” if you like…
Ha ha! As the Irish are said to say “will ya look at that eejit?!“…
Exactly. Also, you will never get to the bottom of this if you try to apply ordinary party or other political ideas to it. This is not about the outer labels of “Conservative” or “Labour” etc, not even about trying to create a Bilderberg/WEF “one world” corporatist tyranny. That is just part of it.
This is about trying to steer the whole of the world in an oligarchic materialist-dictatorship direction. It is tied-in with occult, evil purposes which reach right down into everyday life, even into family life.
Wealth is certainly part of this but there must be more. I am not scientifically trained (just like “Boris” and his Cabinet of clowns), but it is surely at least possible that the hidden agenda of the vaccines is to secretly weaken the human immune system so that, in a year, 3 years, 10 years, a new virus will “suddenly” appear and wipe out most of the population of the world, who (thanks to robotics and AI) are thought “Not Wanted On Voyage”…
Surely Neil Clark did not seriously think that “Labour” drones in Parliament or outside (or the pathetic self-describing “Left” Twitter-twits) would stand up for freedom and civil rights? They cannot even stand up for free speech against the Jew-Zionist element.
Well, admittedly I live in a “Tier 2” area, but over a whole 9-10 months now, not only have I not known anyone personally who has had the “virus”, but I know, from questioning people, that I do not know anyone who knows anyone who has had it. Not died from it, or been to hospital because of it, just had it, or been tested and found be infected. Not one.
I read online about people in London or Birmingham who have supposedly had it. I have no reason to doubt at least some of those claims, but this is not, or not yet, a plague. The big headline today or yesterday about this was “318,000 virus deaths in USA”, which (though many did not die of the virus anyway) is a huge number, but the USA has about 350 million inhabitants, so that is still far less than 1 in every 1,000 inhabitants.
That Stadlen individual is typical of many in the UK today, especially those who make a living being scribblers or TV talking heads. Unlike most of their predecessors, they see nothing wrong in censoring views, either directly or indirectly (the latter by simply encouraging the BBC, Sky, Press etc to disallow dissidents to write or speak).
Stadlen has a First in Classics from Cambridge, albeit gained since award inflation became rampant, yet seems never to have heard of onus probandi incumbit ei qui dicit, non ei qui negat, sometimes put more simply as the rule that “he who asserts must prove“.
In the above case, the positive action taken was to institute “lockdown”. That changed the norm. Therefore it is for those who claim that “lockdowns” work to prove that they do. Not merely assume or assert; prove.
What does this Stadlen care? Wealthy Jewish background, well-paid jobs for BBC and other msm outlets. Looks like he has had a pretty easy life so far. No real concern for the millions of British people suffering (and about to suffer far more). Just crocodile tears tacked on to the end of his virtue-signalling.
All part of the “fear propaganda” brainwashing and conditioning.
“Atrocious” maybe, but scarcely surprising to anyone who has seen on TV Anneliese Dodds, let alone Angela Rayner or Keir Starmer. Not that I have much time for Indian “clever boy” Sunak either.
