The elected dictatorship

Yesterday in Parliament, the latest Government kill-the-economy measures were voted through, 291 votes to 78. Most of the 78 were Conservative Party dissidents, though 15 Labour Party MPs (16 if including Jeremy Corbyn, now sitting as Independent) also voted against: https://votes.parliament.uk/Votes/Commons/Division/916#noes

The Labour Party as a whole abstained. Had it voted against the Government, the Government majority would have been in single figures, though probably still sufficient to win, depending on whether others might have been emboldened.

The Opposition, under Starmer, is lacklustre and without purpose.

A powerful polemic

I may not agree with everything that is said elsewhere, on various topics, by the writer of that piece, and I doubt that she would agree with me on much (if only as a kneejerk reaction), but that piece is worth reading.

Likewise, I am not sure that I would like all of her food recipes, but some of what she does could be regarded as a public service: https://cookingonabootstrap.com/category/recipes-food/; https://cookingonabootstrap.com/2018/09/10/student-essentials-under-a-fiver/; https://cookingonabootstrap.com/2018/09/04/top-tips-reduce-food-waste/; https://cookingonabootstrap.com/2018/07/24/how-to-dry-mushrooms/

The existence on Earth of Jesus Christ, and then the “Aetherization of the Blood”, gave the Jews the chance to change their karmic future. St. Paul (former Saul) and others of that era understood that. Most Jews rejected that chance, just as they (as represented by the mob in Jerusalem) were given the chance to have Jesus Christ released and pardoned, but preferred to choose Barabbas, the Jewish Zealot and cut-throat (the archetype of the aggressive Jew-Zionists of the present age). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barabbas

I think that even Hitler underestimated how destructive Jews (in this case under the “Israeli” label) can be when given power.

Even msm TV reports make it clear how destructive the “lockdown”/shutdown/facemask nonsense has been.

I saw, just yesterday, an interview with and report about what seemed to be a marquee and catering enterprise in (I think) Northern Ireland, killed off by Government “virus” nonsense. This year was the first it failed to make a good profit.

Now its losses have meant insolvency and liquidation. 40 employees have now lost their jobs. Many face poverty, some homelessness, as a result. Now scale that up to millions.

Companies large and small are now insolvent. In huge numbers.

Again, a huge chance for social nationalism to seize the agenda.

I have been blogging for some time about how the new “police state” is a collaboration between the State and transnational companies (along with malicious special interest lobbies such as the Jew-Zionist lobby), rather than the old-style Stalinist model, or if you like the “Latin American” model.

Incidentally, take a look at that mixed-race person in the photo. That is one Vaughan Gething [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaughan_Gething], the Health Minister of the devolved Welsh Government. The Great Replacement, personified…

Peter Hitchens may be right in principle here, but there is little mileage in being pointlessly obstructive to uniformed patrolmen. When I was about 21 or 22, that is back in about 1978, I was walking late at night through a town in one or the more urbanized parts of Surrey, having hitch-hiked there (I did that a lot at that time), and was about halfway to my destination (Reigate Hill) when a police car came alongside.

The policeman in the passenger seat asked where I was going and what I had in my attache case. I answered his first question and, as to the second, answered “books on occultism”. Incredulous smiles from the constabulary. The policeman got out and asked me to open the case. I cannot recall now whether the first book he saw was Gareth Knight’s A Practical Guide to Qabalistic Symbolism or Israel Regardie’s The Tree of Life— A Study in Magic. Whichever it was, it was enough to satisfy the curiosity of Plod.

No doubt, when back in the police canteen, they regaled their cohorts with the story of the odd young man carrying a case of obscure books around the town after midnight.

It happens. One of my one-time schoolmasters said that the police had once stopped him on Westminster Bridge, also late at night, and asked him what he had in his duffle bag (this was when the IRA were bombing London in the early 1970s). He replied “a concrete gnome“, and briefly faced the irritation of the police… until the bag was searched, only to verify his story. It happens.

Boris-idiot, someone who has plotted all his life to become Prime Minister, but who has no beliefs, no ideology to speak of, no religion, not even any plans or ideas, unless you include those 12 year old schoolboy ideas of bridges over the ocean etc.

Just a big nothing. An onion, or an outsize matrioshka, with nothing in the middle.

Late tweets

That says something about the mixture of emergent police state and incompetent mess that we now call a country…

Nah…bye…see you when sanity is restored to this country (if ever)…

Late music

  1. Hello Ian: Thinking about small and medium companies going bankrupt, I could not help thinking about this disgusting thief who has the cheek (typical of his race) to pretend he is the victim and therefore he has the right to insult the journalists. Another candidate to the rope…

      Hail!

      As the old husband of a friend of mine used to say, “one Jew can lead a thousand Englishmen by the nose”. Green is merely the latest of a long line. Another infamous example was “Robert Maxwell”. My countrymen never seem to learn…

  2. Just a question. I know the case of Philip Green must fall into what is Commercial/Corporate Law (that would be the case in Argentina) and maybe was not your speciality as a barrister, but, can you tell me if there is any chance for his former employees to sue him and get some compensation? It is disgusting how the Law seems to favour these crooks!

      One of the major inventions of English law and commerce was the joint-stock company with limited liability. An early disaster was the South Sea Bubble, after which such companies were prohibited for a century:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint-stock_company;
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_company_law_in_the_United_Kingdom;
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_company_law_in_the_United_Kingdom#Prohibition
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_company_law_in_the_United_Kingdom#Development_of_modern_company_law.

      A feature of the modern English private or public limited company is that of *separate legal personality*: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_person.

      In other words, shareholders, and in general directors, are protected from being sued for the acts or omissions of the company in which they have shares and/or are directors.

      *Directors*, however, do have legal responsibilities: https://companieshouse.blog.gov.uk/2019/02/21/7-duties-of-a-company-director/.

      The employees are limited in their right to sue the directors of an insolvent company. https://companieshouse.blog.gov.uk/2019/02/27/what-does-going-into-administration-mean/ :
      The employees rank after the tax people and any *secured* creditors:

      “If the administration involves a sale of all or part of the company’s business, the proceeds (after the costs of the procedure) will be distributed to creditors in a statutory order of priority. There are specific rules regarding distributions however the general order is:
      Secured creditors
      Preferential creditors (employees)
      Unsecured creditors (trade creditors, suppliers, customers, HMRC)
      Shareholders or members”

      That applies to distribution of the *assets* of the *company*. Of course, once a company is dissolved, it no longer exists, as such.

      As far as the *directors* are concerned, in theory they might be sued on the basis of negligence or dishonesty (civil fraud) but this is an uphill journey. A recent case examined:
      https://www.daslaw.co.uk/blog/when-can-company-directors-be-personally-liable.

      There are also regulatory and criminal sanctions available if a director has not behaved properly, but those sanctions do not help the former employees.

      1. Hello Ian: I am sorry for the delay but better late than never: Thank you very much for the information about English law regarding bankruptcy and corporate misconduct. I will not be surprised at all if Philip Green gets away with it. As my dad used to say: “One law for the rich and another for the poor.”

  3. No, Peter Hitchens, that wasn’t a real opposition but on the Tory side a rabble of loony right libertarian extremists. It is well before time that many of them were expelled from the party. Their ideology isn’t really compatible with Tory values so they should be told to sling their hook and have the outrage of their convictions by setting-up their own libertarian party and then seeing how much support those views have when they are presented openly and honesty to the electorate without being masked under the label of the Conservative Party.
