Good to see that at least one large landowner is doing good for the animals and birds: https://www.tatler.com/article/anders-povlsen-uks-largest-private-landowner-scotland-rewilding-interview
Strange. Until the 1990s, as far as I know, most of the drivers were women.
Grow fruit trees in the desert
Interesting, though I myself live far from any desert!

I agree with tweeter “@AnnaSvendsen4” as a general principle, though there are honourable exceptions (individuals) within the non-white populations, just as there are dishonourable exceptions within European humanity.
This is President Trump’s chance —while he still is President— to cut through the tangle by granting Assange pardon.
As to Hitchens’ comment about journalists, how true. There are few real journalists around, these days. The journalistic trade (and Hitchens is right to term it a trade, and not a “profession”, as often seen) has become just a politically-correct, virtue-signalling bunch of “me-too” serfs.
The Bar, despite being traditionally a profession, and not a mere trade, is no better now.
Not one member of the Bar stood up publicly to support me after I was wrongfully disbarred in 2016 (following a conspiracy by a pack of Israel-supporting Jews; see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/). Not one…
The same has been true in the Alison Chabloz case. Few if any “journalists” (or lawyers) stood up for her right to sing satirical songs.
The old saying (Voltaire?) that “I hate what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it” is met, in today’s UK, with incomprehension, closely followed by hostility. Look at the (mostly) virtue-signalling (mostly) idiots on Twitter. Typical in that way.
Pretty good, but fails to point out, explicitly, the Jewish roots of all that.

I was —and remain— pro-Brexit, but as I predicted years ago would happen, Brexit has been criminally and indeed possibly deliberately mishandled, not least by Boris-idiot.
Ha ha! “Double and triple the guard...”

Wellsaid, Piers Morgan!👌 We pro lockdown supporters and others who treat Covid-19 as seriously as it should be must all stick together against the sick, libertarian extremist loons who want the disease to get even more out of the control than Boris The Buffoon’s cabinet of morons has already caused.
We must fight this essential good fight together! To the barricades, Piers, with me and other sensible folk!😎👌😷😷😷
P.S. I usually can’t stand you and you still be very ashamed of that front page on British troops you published as the Daily Mirror’s editor but on Covid19 I am with you totally.
Hello Ian: What a brilliant quote that one from C.S.Lewis! It could have been written yesterday! Also, that little self-hating POS whose video was reproduced by “Eichmann” is a perfect example of the state of mind of most white youngsters, especially females. They should be sent to Africa or dropped in some black neighbourhood where they will be promptly raped and murdered by their black “brothers”.
Good to hear from you.
I’ve felt over this period that it resembles the Winter of Discontent – without the discontent – (1979-80) – which featured prime minister Jim Callaghan flying off to the Caribbean for a ‘working’ holiday on the beach while everyone in GB froze and endured the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune such as no fuel-oil due to a tanker driver’s strike. Stupidly, I walked to my junior high school through the snow on the first day back and found the gates locked. I had to turn round and trudge along the one-and-a-half miles home. The big difference of course was that the press was overwhelmingly hostile and critical toward Callaghan and the Labour government whom it blamed for the crisis.
Yes, though the “Winter of Discontent” actually only existed, in most respects, for a few weeks. I have seen, over the years, tweets and comments to the effect that it went on for months and everyone was freezing and starving. I also saw similar comments about the “three day week” of early 1974, which again was brief and the industrial strife around it not very widespread.
Yet many say that “the 1970s” were “three day weeks” and “winters of discontent”. They really seem to believe it (even some people who were themselves there!).
As to 2020-2021, people have been bought off by furlough payments etc. The majority are not suffering…yet.
