Diary Blog, 18 January 2021, including some thoughts about Universal Credit and Basic Income

“The virus”

BBC Radio 4 Today Programme: interviewee Nadhim Zahawi [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadhim_Zahawi; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadhim_Zahawi#Expenses] said that the Government is expecting 85% of the England-resident population to agree to be vaccinated in the next few months. Asked about whether it might become compulsory to be vaccinated, Zahawi (born in Baghdad to Kurdish parents, only came to the UK aged 9) said “we are not that kind of country“.

It seems that the odd-looking showoff who owns Pimlico Plumbers [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pimlico_Plumbers; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie_Mullins] has said that he will not employ anyone who cannot prove vaccination.

To me, the telling point is that the subject of compulsion has been raised at all. I cannot recall any previous time when it has been. What is the real agenda, bearing in mind that well over 99% of people who are infected with “Coronavirus”/”Covid-19” actually recover, most without serious ongoing problems (as far as can be seen so far)?

Another piece of news today was that there are some indications that some variants of “the virus” have mutated to the point where the vaccine(s) become ineffective. There would then have to be, presumably, further or other vaccine(s).

One asks again, what is really behind all this? The “Great Reset”? If so, how does it all play out?

Laura Kuenssberg has become steadily worse over several years; completely partisan. She is, basically, a government mouthpiece. A few years ago, I was sent information about her: part-Jew. I was unaware. I knew that she is part-German (echt German, not Jew), but it turned out that (like many UK-based journalists) she is also part-Jew.

As I have previously blogged, the whole idea of topping-up poor pay by means of State benefits is an error, completely wrongheaded. What it means is that employers can pay poverty wages, wages insufficient to live upon, and the employees paid those inadequate monies have to apply for Universal Credit merely to survive on a quite basic level.

Moreover, it means that the employers, and their profits, are being subsidised by the State, meaning by all citizens, including even those receiving State benefits! This is so because even those not paying income tax still pay other taxes: those working full-time (and many working part-time) are paying National Insurance [https://www.gov.uk/national-insurance], which is a tax by any other name; all are also paying VAT on most purchases: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Value-added_tax_in_the_United_Kingdom.

Incidentally, the standard rate at which VAT is levied has increased steadily since introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Value-added_tax_in_the_United_Kingdom#Historical_rates.

What that all means is, inter alia, that those receiving Universal Credit are actually partly paying for that themselves, because most are paying not only VAT but also National Insurance.

The answer is twofold: firstly, the State should pay a measure of Basic Income to all persons whose income falls below a certain level. How much? Hard to say off the cuff, but about £100 per week seems right, as a minimum.

Secondly, there must be a higher minimum wage set. How high? Again, hard to say exactly, but £10 a hour seems about right.

Enforcement of the minimum wage also needs to be stepped up.

The devil is very much in the detail in such matters, of course. Housing Benefit is another can of worms. It may be that Housing Benefit should be eliminated, and the slack taken up by a much higher Basic Income. Expensive? Yes, but so is the whole “welfare” sector, with its “assessments”, snooping, intricate administration etc; of that, not the least pertains to Housing Benefit.

and now Ukraine is basically a Jew-ruled failed state. Ironic (?) in that the historical Khazars, from whom many if not most Jews descend (i.e. not from ancient “Israelites”) were, loosely and inter alia, in the area of the Ukraine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khazars; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khazar_hypothesis_of_Ashkenazi_ancestry https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/archaeology/scientists-reveal-jewish-history-s-forgotten-turkish-roots-a6992076.html

Shameful. Ironic though, that so many of the Twitter-twits have reposted the above graphic while at the same time arguing for even more immigrants to enter the UK, thus depressing pay further, thus straining public services further. The self-described “Left” have nothing to offer, any more than have the finance-capitalists (who also want more immigration). Only social-national policies can beat and cut a path out of the jungle.

  1. Ian I fear vaccination will almost certainly become compulsory and not just through elective choices as to where you can fly, what services you can access etc. A Vaccine Passport will not have been trialled merely for a one off jab. Future legal arguments about individual consent will be swept aside as the Governments of the world brand those refusing the initial “vaccination” as potential bio hazards to the rest of society and given the successful way in which the overwhelming majority of people have already been successfully brainwashed into compliance with the most disproportionate and egregious interference with our individual freedoms and way of life in our entire history this next phase will no doubt be met with overwhelming public support. We now know plans were afoot for this mass roll out of vaccination within weeks of the first lockdown being implemented at the very earliest. This means that they foresaw this was going to be the end result. Unlike no other pandemic in history, the death rate is an administrative one that can be increased or decreased at the stoke of the Health Secretary’s pen. ONS monthly death rates show, so far, no increase in actual deaths. The PCR testing for this “virus” is similarly arranged so as to capture the broadest result. There is no MSM debate on scientific disagreement indeed any dissent is censored. In other words, this pandemic is liable to disappear administratively as quickly as it appeared. Why? Perhaps those powers that be have decided global vaccination is a safe and controlled way of reducing the world’s population to avoid excess completion for the world’s dwindling resources without the need for a new world conflict that would threaten their individual wealth etc. and therefore they genuinely believe their actions are in the best interests of humanity. As a famous sleuth once said, “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable must be the truth.”

      I think it entirely possible that you are right as to all of that.

      You made an important point in saying that it may be that certain powers may have decided that it is in the best interests of the world as a whole that population be reduced. In fact, I cannot argue with that as a bald statement; indeed, I made the same point myself in blog posts, eg https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/.

      Where I would (perhaps) part company with the “Wise Men of the West” is that I think that the *non-European* population should be reduced. Still, I see that this virus attacks non-Europeans more. South Africa and Israel were collaborating, pre-Mandela, on biological weapons that would hit only Africans and Arabs. What happened to that research after 1992 or so?

      The “Western cabals” are not ashamed about their strategy: look at how the WEF even trumpeted on its Twitter account about what a great opportunity for a “Great Reset” the Coronavirus “pandemic” is…They think that they are doing the right thing.

      These transnational conspirators think of themselves as implementing a consensus view, not a conspiracy.
