Diary Blog, New Year’s Day, 1 January 2021

First thoughts

Saw a few minutes, on TV, of the “celebrations” by the Thames at London last night. Pure dystopian propaganda, carried out in and over an equally dystopian London, dark and deserted.

Technically, and as a spectacle, the display could not be faulted. Brilliant. What disturbed me was the content; that, and the surrounding situation.

This was not the Britain I recognize (except in fear), but a caricature; “Danny Boyle Britain”, if you like (thinking of the opening show of the 2012 London Olympics). There was the by now almost obligatory laudatory reference to the NHS. I fully support a health service free at point of use, but the NHS has become a kind of quasi-religious totem or sacred cow in the UK. You would think that nowhere else in Europe or the world has health or medical services (and that the NHS is being run properly).

Then there were other references, together with meaningless Orwellian slogans flashed into the sky: “Hope Together“, they said, “Love Together“, they said. It did not take much of a leap of imagination to see an isolated and lonely Winston Smith on the dark, almost freezing Embankment, looking upon this spectacle for the masses where the masses were absent. Or perhaps Volodin, in Solzhenitsyn’s In the First Circle [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_First_Circle].

The BBC TV News propaganda megaphone this morning outdid its own (unintentional) usual irony by putting on the sub-screen tickertape, “celebrations across UK“…

Tweets seen


The BBC Radio 4 Today Programme, like much BBC output, is now all but unlistenable (radio) and unwatchable (TV). Not only biased but boring, very very boring.

“@rattus2384” is Stephen Applebaum, a fanatical Jew-Zionist troll and one-time “film critic”, who also tweets as “@grubstreetsteve”.

Google “the Great Reset”, “the Great Replacement”, “NWO”, “ZOG”,”Bilderberg”, “World Economic Forum”, “WEF”, and “Ian Millard barrister” (and “Ian Millard WordPress”…), and you will be on the right track…

I myself do not eat meat, but were I living on Britain’s streets (and, like Hitler, I came close, a couple of times in my life), and if then I were offered food unacceptable to me, while I would not eat it (I should prefer to scavenge or steal food more acceptable to me), I should all the same be grateful that someone was interested enough to make the offer…

Incidentally, while I am not a member of, or supporter of (as such), Patriotic Alternative, and in fact have never met nor had any online contact with it, nor with any people who are in it, I do commend in outline that which they seem to be doing.

Funny but, speaking politically, with a serious edge. This might be the way to go for social nationalism in the future. “From out of the fog, we strike…“.

That sort of thing has happened before in the USA and, though rarely proven, in the UK, France and Germany; Jewish fanatics trying to prove “neo-Nazi” “antisemitism” by faking attacks on Jewish sites such as synagogues and cemeteries. It always seemed bizarre to me. Would “neo-Nazis” really waste time attacking Jews who were already dead? In fact, several Jews, over the years, have been arrested and eventually convicted for similar “false flag” attacks.

Pity, though, that that tweeter validates the language of the enemy (“racism“…).

I notice that even UK Government official websites (eg NHS) now have stylized cartoons showing the sort of family propagandized on UK TV ads etc, i.e. the black man with the white woman and their half-caste offspring. The Great Replacement. White Genocide, in effect.

Below, an example of the absurdity of Twitter: “Dr.” Louise Raw (whose doctorate is not medical but was the result of study of an industrial dispute of 1888), argues with another tweeter.

I notice that quite a few people have retweeted or “liked” Louise Raw’s tweet.

Leaving aside the substance of what she tweeted, I wonder how many of those retweeters etc assumed that Ms. Raw is a medical doctor?

As I have said before, in the UK it has always been the norm or “done thing” that persons with a medical degree are called “doctor”. In fact, many medics have no “doctorate”, as such; it is a courtesy title in many cases.

Others who, in the UK, have always been able to use the title “Dr.” without eyebrows being raised, have been priests and others in holy orders, tenured academics and schoolmasters, and scientists.

In other countries, notably Germany, it has always been acceptable for anyone, pretty much, who has a doctorate in anything, to use the title. One example was Dr. Goebbels: “At the University of Heidelberg, Goebbels wrote his doctoral thesis on Wilhelm von Schรผtz, a minor 19th-century romantic dramatist.[20]… After submitting the thesis and passing his oral examination, Goebbels earned his PhD in 1921.[21] By 1940, he had written 14 books.[22] “[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Goebbels].

It may seem, perhaps in view of the German praxis, pedantic to complain that an obscure Twitter person, who is not a public figure, calls herself “Doctor” on an everyday basis (and she is now not alone; there are even several MPs doing this, Julian Lewis and Therese Coffey among them). However, I think that we now have to stand up for standards. “Doctor” should not be devalued; “Professor” already has been, along with “Lord” and “Baroness”…

Now that I am supposedly 64, that tweet resonates with me! Incidentally, should any (younger?) readers of my blog not get the “Logan’s Run” reference, see below:

University Challenge Alumni Final

Well, in the end, the Courtauld Institute won it, beating Manchester, but what poor teams! As in previous matches, I did better than either team, by far. These were the finalists! Incredible.

Late tweets

“Avoid paying taxes”? Hardly revolutionary, though I suppose that there was the Boston Tea Party; also, Gandhi’s boycott of British-made cotton.

Another time, I shall examine where the UK is in terms of the disastrous effects of the “lockdowns” and semi-lockdowns.

  1. So, Alison Pearson, is that why a doctor was on tv only yesterday pleading with the lawless scumbags wicked Tory cunts like you encourage by your pathetic, untruthful tweets to follow the rules or, in his very words, be guilty of, โ€œhaving blood on their hands.โ€?๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฌ

    Just suit the fuck-up, you evil, twisted Tory libertarian extremist cunt!

    Or die of Covid19 yourself like the 70,000 and rapidly rising innocent people morons like you have encouraged to enter a grave too early!

    Any remotely decent country ie Singapore would have had evil cunts like you locked-up already.


  2. How about you stop tweeting utter nonsense about Covid-19, Alison Pearson, and you can stop cheerleading for that other libertarian Tory extremist cunt project called Brexit you know that fantastical idea that has been botched severely with the direct breaking of the Act of Union of 1801 between Great Britain and Ireland which was supposed to have guaranteed for all time the fact that His Majestyโ€™s subjects of Great Britain and Ireland would be equal in every respect, trade on exactly the same terms within a UNITED KINGDOM of Great Britain and Ireland etc?

    As of yesterday, that act has been broken asunder with a new trade barrier being erected down the Irish Sea, NI being subjected to the continual jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and being left behind in the EUโ€™s Single Market!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    All of this caused by you libertarian extremist Tory cunts with the head clown and brainless, blonde bimbo like yourself, Boris Moron Idiot Johnson in No.10.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    Isnโ€™t 70,000 plus Covid19 deaths and a severely botched โ€˜Brexitโ€™ ENOUGH damage for you libertarian extremist Tory cunts?๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜žโ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธ


    1. You idiotic libertarian extremist โ€˜Toryโ€™ cunts have managed to achieve by your botched โ€˜Brexitโ€™ something the Kaiser and Hitler never could ie the beginning of the end of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and NI.

      So, not only has the fake Conservative Party dumped real conservatism overboard it has now eliminated the unionist part of its so-called convictions.

      How about being honest for once and renaming the party from The Conservative and Unionist Party to the Americanised Libertarian Extremist Cunt Party?๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


  3. Talking totally unscientific bollocks, AGAIN, Mr Hitchens? If facial masks have absolutely no effect against the transmission of the virus then why is it that governments all around the world even our own libertarian extremist Tory one has mandated their use in public?

    It is true as a report in the Singapore Straits Times newspaper said that some masks are more effective than others ie that generally-speaking the more uncomfortable they are to wear the more effective they are but the fact is ALL of them with the SOLE exception of those silly neck bandana ones DO protect the wearer AND others from the virus to a smaller or greater extent than wearing no mask at all as idiots like you advocate.


  4. I know what WOULD work with utterly repellent libertarian extremist cunts like you, Peter Hitchens, AND it has the added advantage it doesnโ€™t affect anyone else in anyway let alone in the disastrous way like the death you foster amongst the innocents!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    It is called the Death Penalty via a nice, little lethal injection as in the USA!


    Funnily enough, the continued use of capital punishment there is one of the very few ways the Yanks steer away from classical, irresponsible, degenerate libertarianism!

    How about we test a three drug or one drug protocol on you, Mr Hitchens?

    I know you have advocated the return of the hangmanโ€™s noose in this country but the point is MOST people in Britain who would like to see capital punishment restored normally only wish for the death penalty to be used upon GENUINE CRIMINALS who have been convicted in a court of law after a fair trial NOT upon entirely innocent, decent people who would be protected by masks etc from catching Covid 19 if it were not for grotesquely irresponsible so-called โ€˜responsibleโ€™ journalists like you encouraging lawless scumbags to deliberately flout the needed social distancing and mask regulations.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„โ€™


  5. So, how about you stop effectively advocating for the death penalty for wholly innocent vulnerable people and instead only wish for its use amongst PROVEN CRIMINALS?๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


  6. Yes, Holly Parr, lockdowns apparently donโ€™t work. However, you havenโ€™t taken account of the fact they DO if they are sufficiently wide ranging, enforced strictly and are not ended before their full utility is used as ours was.

    In China, the lockdown HAS been effective.

    That daft Tory cow, Alison Pearson, who writes for a formerly respected newspaper now Boris Idiot fanboy sheet wrote a tweet recently wondering why people in Wuhan were celebrating New Year normally!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    Well I know this will come as a surprise to her but the reason why is because China HAS DEALT with the crisis and used decidedly non libertarian methods you thick cow! Methods idiots like you would whinge constantly about.

    Seriously, where the fuck does the non Conservative Party and rags like the Telegraph get these eternally dopy women from?

    Do they have some sort of underground lair with a big production line to turn them out constantly from because there are bloody legions of them around writing for joke โ€˜newspapersโ€™ and in the House of Treason as MPs!

    No wonder our forbears were reluctant to allow women the right to vote with people like this blonde airhead Alison Pearson around!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


  7. Well said, Dr Louise Raw! We must continue to fight the good fight against the all too numerous numbers of Covid 19 deniers and all those other Covid idiots like Hitchens etc who donโ€™t wish to take any effective actions to deal with the crisis as if we donโ€™t more people will die unnecessarily or fall very seriously ill and we will be here for ever trying to get back to normality.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜žโ˜น๏ธ


  8. Here Alison Pearson and Peter Hitchens, lockdowns and social distancing may work in Britain as it has in China IF you gave sufficient powers and backing to the hard-pressed police. This serving
    officer is complaining your โ€˜Toryโ€™ government has not done that well enough:


    Still, when it comes to the crunch, Tory blowhards like Peter donโ€™t actually back the police much and have a rather โ€˜pick and mixโ€™ approach to supporting them!

    Not that we have many of them nowadays thanks to ten years of cuts to their numbers by the self-proclaimed โ€˜party of law and orderโ€™.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ The โ€˜thin blue lineโ€™ has got ever thinner!

    Perhaps one day Priti Useless may give them those powers and increased directions this officer is asking for that is when she has finally torn herself away from practicing her gormless ever present smirk in the mirror!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


  9. So lockdowns donโ€™t work, Peter?Perhaps, you would like to tell the great Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, that who has done a superb job regarding Covid 19 one that far outshines the utterly horrific mess your beloved libertarian extremist cunt Tories have made.

    That might be because Mr Morrison is a serious PM and not a clown as Boris undoubtedly is and whilst Boris Idiot was doing the only thing he has a big talent for ie clowning around on This Morning with his Tory mates in March of last year instead of dealing with Covid Mr Morrison was acting EARLY to preserve lives, the good health and the economy of the Australian people,๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    As a result, Australia is in good shape and has effectively got over Covid whilst we are still in a deep hole.

    By the way, Australia has far more connections to the outside world than New Zealand does and their tourist industry is a pretty large one.


  10. What about Taiwanโ€™s success, Peter? Out of all countries, they have arguably been the most successful. You are surely not accusing them of being a lying Communist state, are you? They broke away from China in 1949 precisely because they reject Communism.

    Surely you recognise the fact that Taiwan is not an isolated country in the South Pacific like New Zealand?

    Basically, Peter, we in the pro lockdown and pro social distancing side of the debate have FAR more examples of success or partial success than your side has!

    You donโ€™t mention Sweden much nowadays! Why is that? Is it because they have recently begun to toughen-up their loony libertarian approach and the government there has been blasted by no less than the Swedish King?๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    You are not really saying America is the country we should emulate, are you? You are not THAT far gone down the loony tune hole!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


  11. What the hell is wrong with โ€˜Communistโ€™ China anyway, Peter? They are brutally efficient at dealing with crisis situations and they have the worldโ€™s second largest economy which according to a report I saw in The Guardian and on other sources recently is predicted to overtake that of the US as early as 2028!

    I thought the only thing that mattered to you Tories was a constantly rising GDP, GDP, GDP, GDP and sod everything else like the environment, mass immigration, etc!๐Ÿ™„

    So, you are saying that to Tories the economy and money is NOT everything, after all? I would have thought you would be envious of China and want to adopt their values and methods to get a similar economic renaissance in Britain!๐Ÿ™„


  12. I must admit I donโ€™t like the Chinese nor do I trust them. They are a strange people with strange, often unhygienic habits, and they are the original and premier people of that part of the world which the phrase โ€˜The Yellow Perilโ€™ was invented for. This is why I am passionately opposed to Boris Moron Idiotโ€™s evil, genocidal plan to flood us with up to 3 MILLION HK Chinese despite the fact HK ceased being a British colony as long ago as 1997 and despite Tory promises to get to grips with mass immigration which is promised often but NEVER delivered upon.๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    Having said that one can have a certain admiration for their economic rise and their often impressive civil engineering projects such as ultra-high bridges etc but to be honest the only peoples of East Asia I have a very high regard for are the Koreans and particularly the Japs who can be said to be deserving of the โ€˜honoury whitesโ€™ label thy have been given.

    Instead of 3 million โ€˜Yellow Perilโ€™ HK Chinese being allowed to immigrate here canโ€™t we have 3 million Japs instead, Tories? You never know if we did we might get some great exporting companies like Sony, Toyota, Honda, Nikon, Canon, Seiko, Citizen, Mitsubishi etc being set up here after a few years and Japs are noted for their law abiding nature as well!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„


    1. M’Lord of Essex:
      One can only understand Boris-idiot’s invitation for the Hong Kong Chinese (half of them, several millions) to migrate to the UK in terms of the “Great Reset” and “Great Replacement” so-called “conspiracy theory” or theories…It’s treachery, basically.


      1. Intentional treachery it surely is and an act that only be justly punished adequately by the use of the hangmanโ€™s noose. In the infamous words of Lord (Peter) Lilley when he was talking as Social Security Secretary about unmarried single women claiming benefits to a Tory conference meeting in the mid 1990โ€™s, โ€œIโ€™ve got a little listโ€. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜‚

        Make of that what you will!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜€ All I would say is that it would be advisable of Boris, Priti Useless, Dominic Raab and company to jet off to their tax haven boltholes of Bermuda, The Cayman Islands, Monaco etc pretty damm sharpish before a new Albert Pierrepoint is trained and ready for duty which could be yours truly!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿท๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท


  13. In the words of Dick Emory, โ€œYou are awful but I like you!โ€, Ian! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž

    As you have said often justice has to be tempered with mercy and as I am feeling generous I am prepared to let Matt Hancock off the hook of a well justified hanging of the entire โ€˜Britishโ€™ Tory cabinet not least for the fact he has, apparently, suffered a personal loss of his own from Covid19 so I will show a spirit of common humanity and mercy towards him only and reprieve him from the justified fate of the others.

    Now, I canโ€™t say fairer than that, can I?๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


  14. I long to be able to write new pieces of legislations which will be entitled โ€˜ Criminal Justice (Increased Penalties/Restoration of Judicial Corporal Punishment/Capital Punishment) Act 2021 and a new, updated Treason/Treachery Act 2021 providing for the use of the ultimate penalty for wilful, planned genocide of distinct ethnic groups through mass immigration. This will be made retrospective for crimes dating back to 1950.

    A judge needs to be able to put on his black cap and pronounce the drastic and ominous sentence, โ€œAlexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, you are 56 years of age, it is my duty to pass upon you the only sentence the law can pass for the crime of wilful, planned genocide of the various British native ethnic groups. You will be taken from this court to a lawful prison and thence to a place of execution where you will suffer death by hanging and your body will be buried in the precincts of the prison in which you shall be last confined before execution and May The Lord Have Mercy Upon Your Soul.โ€

    We could execute him for being an inveterate and psychopathic liar but some faint hearts may consider that to be a bit harsh a use for the death penalty! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


      1. It will be called either the โ€˜Lord High Protector of The Innocents (Brentwood,Essex) Act or โ€˜The Act for The Suppression of Criminal Scum/Appropriate Increased Penalty Act for Criminals/Only Justified Penalty for Wilful Genocidal Murderers of The Native British (Treason/Treachery) Act.


  15. Slightly twisting the words to the pretty good speech Michael Howard made to the Tory conference in 1993 which I enjoyed quite a bit,

    โ€œPrison WORKS! It ensures we are protected from murderers, rapists and muggers and it makes many who are tempted to commit crime think TWICE!โ€

    I say, โ€œโ€Executions WORK! They ensure murderers are fully incapacitated and canโ€™t commit any further murders or, indeed, any other crimes as it is self-evident dead criminals canโ€™t do this! Prison officers and other incarcerated inmates have a justified need to be fully protected from being potentially murdered inside prisons and that although inmates are scumbags for having committed crimes and being sent to jail for them many are young and are sentenced to only a few months or a year or two at most for relatively non serious offences so it would be a tragedy if they were murdered by often older, hardened, vicious murderers and are not fully protected from them. They ought to be given the chance to be rehabilitated, go back to their families and to rebuild their hopefully successful lives once they have served their short sentences.โ€


  16. Twisting Michael Howardโ€™s famous โ€˜Prison Worksโ€™ speech again!

    I suspect this would not have had such a thunderous round of applause,

    โ€œThe best deterrent against crime is not so much harsh sentences though they can help but having massive, sufficiently large, well-paid, well-motivated, freed from the loony-left constraints of Political Correctness police forces. If we as a country REALLY wish to bear down upon the criminal fraternity then we MUST radically increase the numbers of police officers employed so to to that end I will recruit many thousands of new police officers but this will have a considerable cost attached to it namely I will ask my colleague, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Kenneth Clarke, to (in the words of Fagin from Oliver) โ€˜pick a pocket or two of all you rich people in the audienceโ€™ and increase your taxes so that we can significantly enlarge our police forces along the lines of the ratio of officers to population they have in Germany if not Monaco which would be unaffordable even with increased taxes for the wealthyโ€™!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿท๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


    1. M’Lord of Essex:
      Yesterday evening, I made a scavenging foray to Waitrose. Almost empty car park at 1900 hrs. Then a police car drove in. I was hoping that he was not going to be a nuisance in view of the fact that my car was one of only about 4 in the whole car park.

      Not that I have anything to worry about, the car having valid/current MOT, insurance and road tax, and I having had a full British licence since 2002 (my former/original licence was a foreign one), and with no points since 2005 (speeding: 97 mph in a 70 mph zone).

      I just don’t like having to answer questions and be bored (who does?).

      Anyway, I went into the store and saw the reason for the policeman’s visit (I also thought that maybe a shoplifter had been caught, though I know that police rarely attend for that these days)…he was buying himself a pack of kettle crisps!

      My first (American) wife always said that I would not be any good as an investigator, because, she said, “you don’t like eating in cars”!


      1. Yummy! That police officer has good taste! They are one of my favourite brands of crisps! Well, a policeman has to have sustenance whilst on the move!

        Waitrose is my favourite supermarket. They are an excellent store especially at this time of the year and their wine department is great too. Undoubtedly, it is the best one out of all the supermarkets and akin to a proper wine merchants. My nearest Waitrose is in Billericay and there is another one not far away in Upminster. The biggest Waitrose in the country according to Wikipedia isnโ€™t a huge distance either to go to. That is in in Southend.

        How tall was this policeman? They seem to be getting shorter!. I thought you had to be at least 5 foot ten inches or taller to be one?


      2. I am not sure about height, m’Lord of Essex. About the same as me, and I am 6 feet, so…Why do you ask? Is height related to consumption of crisps? That would relate more to weight, surely?


  17. No, it isnโ€™t. I ask because police officers do seem to be getting shorter nowdays. I think they used to have a minimum height requirement to join at one time but it has either been scrapped or been reduced.

    I personally think police officers do need to be a certain height as then they project an aura of strength and become just a little bit intimidating to potential criminals.

    I know this might sound sexist but I also think it is better for more men to be police officers rather than women. Women, can, of course, be capable officers but men are more naturally intimidating/authoritative to criminals and that can be an asset for a police force.
