Diary Blog, 31 May 2021

I happened to see this Wikipedia piece: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avshalom_Feinberg. A Jew who was a spy for the British in then-Ottoman Palestine in the First World War.

In 1915 Feinberg traveled to Egypt and made contact with the British Department of Naval Intelligence. In 1917, he again went to Egypt, on foot. He was apparently killed on his way back by a group of Bedouins near the British front in Sinai, close to Rafah.[3] His fate was unknown until after the 1967 Six-Day War, when his remains were found under a palm tree that had grown from date seeds in his pocket.” [Wikipedia].

How about that?! “…his remains were found under a palm tree that had grown from date seeds in his pocket.

Well, now that the said Feinberg is apparently an Israeli hero-figure (they even have a stamp with his head on it), the suspicion must be that the bit about the palm tree and the date seeds is some kind of fairy tale. Still, it may well be true. These things happen.

I have not included the above in my blog to make any political or other point; it just struck me as interesting. Still, one could reflect on how one never knows how one’s actions may, long after one’s own death, bear unexpected fruit (in the case of Feinberg, literally, of course).

Israeli elections

Readers of my blog will know that I am usually cautious about commenting about the political situation in countries with which I am not directly familiar (even Scotland), but idly browsing Wikipedia while listening to BBC World Service, I heard about the electoral impasse in Israel. I looked up the state of play on Wikipedia:

It seems that there 120 elected members. What is extraordinary is that Israeli politics is so fragmented that the party presently ruling, Likud [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Likud], has only 30 members out of that 120. Indeed, the whole minority government coalition headed by Likud only has 54 members.

The second-largest party in the Knesset, Yesh Atid [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yesh_Atid] has only 17 Knesset members. The next-largest party has 9. In fact, there are no less than 23 parties and Independent members represented, grouped into 13 parties and factions.

Compare that to the much larger UK House of Commons, where there are 16 parties and Independents but where, out of 650 MPs, 562 belong to only two of those parties.

Why is the Israeli parliament so fragmented? It may be that there is something in the Jewish psychology that tends to dissension, dissidence etc. That was certainly true of the various Marxist factions that used to exist in the Western world, especially in the realms of Trotskyism.

There again, the Israeli proportional representation system has a low threshold for representation: 3.25% (it was 1% at one time). In fact, there has never been a one-party-majority government in Israel.

A further aspect is the sheer fragmentation of Israeli society, as can be seen in the details of the various parties: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knesset#Current_composition.

Another aspect yet is that most of those parties were started not long ago. The main Opposition party, Yesh Atid, was only formed in 2012. Several others were formed even more recently, in the past two or three years. Likud, the presently largest party, was founded in 1973.

Well, there it is. A peculiar country. Interesting though. I am interested generally in countries which are contrived or artificial, as Israel surely is. Singapore would be another example. They tend to be small geographically; Israel is almost exactly the size of Wales (or New Jersey), while Singapore is not even twice the size of the Isle of Wight. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore.

Farm subsidies

Listening to some typical farm-owner whining on BBC Radio 4 Today Programme. Farmers in the UK always want it both ways, to be treated as independent businessmen and women, but given State subsidy or support at the same time. For me, it just does not wash.

One farmer had the right sort of ideas about small-scale farming, biodiversity, organics etc, yet wanted public money, in effect for not being an environmental vandal. Why should the public subsidize farmers at all? Better to impose environmental and animal welfare regulations, restrict imports, and let the farms be real private “businesses”. Alternatively, to put them largely into State ownership but give environment-friendly farmers or collectives long-term (even lifetime) leases.

Soon, there will be the Batley and Spen by-election. I shall be blogging about it in a week or so. The Labour Party vote has suffered a gradual decline in that constituency since the rigged by-election in 2016. After the assassination of Jo Cox, the System parties conspired to get another Labour Party MP elected, so an ex-soap actress was parachuted in, and the Conservative and LibDem parties did not stand. Pathetically, “controlled opposition” UKIP also failed to put up a candidate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batley_and_Spen_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s.

Now Labour is relying, in the Batley by-election, on a kind of “sympathy vote” by putting up the sister of that assassinated MP. Pretty desperate…

As to Vietnam, the war could only have been won by the South (with American help) had there been a massive ground invasion of the North, with the attendant risk of superpower non-proxy conflict. There were Soviet fighter pilots actually on service in North Vietnam (I met one myself in 1996).

Whether that sort of ground invasion of North Vietnam would have succeeded long-term is of course doubtful (cf. Afghanistan and Iraq in the post-1989 era). In the end, war is a method of achieving political goals (in most cases). Peace is usually achieved via political consensus or victory.

This is pretty bad news for Labour, though unsurprising if you think, like me, that Labour now has no reason to exist except as a rather niche party, one for blacks, browns, and some of those who work in the public sector.

I am not yet ready to blog about Batley and Spen, the by-election for which is set down for 1 July 2021. If Labour loses, at it did at Hartlepool recently, Starmer is probably a “dead man walking”, politically.

At the moment, I incline to the view that Batley will be an uphill struggle for Labour, bearing in mind that George Galloway (under aegis of “Workers’ Party”), and the Yorkshire Party, are both standing. Galloway is rather a busted flush, but still has his supporters. The Yorkshire Party seems to have support as well. Those two together will probably get about 5%, which might make the difference between Labour holding on or not.

The Labour vote there has been declining since the rigged by-election of 2016 (in which Labour was not opposed by the other System parties).

The “right royal” circus

I find this all hilarious. Harry is now effectively a critic of the whole “right royal” circus, yet he himself is of course a major recipient and beneficiary of it. After all, take away the “royal prince” thing, and what is Harry? A youngish man (37 this September) who only became an Army officer because he was “helped”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Harry,_Duke_of_Sussex#Education, and who would have had no chance of high rank based on merit (he held the rank of Captain at the end of his active service).

Indeed, without his birth privilege, Harry would probably have drifted into some line such as car salesman, Hooray Henry estate agency, or similar.

I doubt that Netflix etc would take any interest in him at all were he not supposedly “royal”…

Actually, thinking about Harry’s “help” in passing exams at Eton (he ended up with two “A” levels, a “B” in Art, and a “D” in Geography), I am reminded of a story I heard a long time ago (about 1981) about a similar “royal” educational straggler.

The young lady in question was a relative of the Queen who struggled academically. She needed intensive personal tuition in languages in order to gain entrance to an Oxford college. This was in the late 1970s, as I understand it. The college in question had bent over backwards to accommodate the Palace, but insisted on the young lady having the special private tuition if they were going to offer her a place.

In the end, she was accepted by that Oxford college, after having been worked on for weeks, perhaps months, by an elderly White Russian resident in London. All under cloak of secrecy, but of course there are no secrets, as such, just levels of secrecy.

President Macron has just welcomed to the Elysée two YouTubers called Carlito and McFly, both of whom dressed down for the occasion with one appearing to have a tea cosy on his head. The pair are all the rage among that section of society who get their kicks on YouTube, although despite their adolescent antics Carlito and McFly are actually a couple of middle-class men in their mid-thirties.

What followed was excruciating, what one conservative commentator described as ’36 minutes of soft barbarism… [which] erodes the verticality of power and deconstructs the state’. All of which begs the question: what was Macron thinking in inviting Carlito and McFly into his palace?

To win the youth vote, perhaps? A poll last month suggested that the 25 to 34-year-old demographic is more inclined to vote for Marine Le Pen in next year’s presidential election than for Macron. But they would not have been won over by what they saw, a president ill-at-ease in his suit and tie, a fixed grin on his face as he exchanged wooden banter with two lowbrow clowns.

There is a feeling among the French I speak to that the country is nearing a tipping point and that voters, alone in the booth, might decide that with no dignified politicians left, they might as well give Le Pen a go.” [The Spectator]

As in the example of Alison Chabloz. People should stop and think what kind of tyranny imprisons people for singing satirical songs, or for posting a few cartoons about Jews or others.

The System and its msm handmaidens may not have thought through what might happen down the line if the British people are denied any peaceful political expression. Even the Soviet tyranny was toppled in the end, even the Albanian tyranny was toppled in the end, even the Romanian tyranny was toppled in the end.

Diary Blog, 28 May 2021, including thoughts about Sir Roger Casement

Historical inaccuracy about Sir Roger Casement

Switching on Radio 4 late at night, just before it switches to BBC World Service, I heard the Irish politician or ex-politician, Mary McAleese [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_McAleese], reading some of her memoirs.

I was surprised to hear Mrs McAleese say that Sir Roger Casement [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Casement] had been executed for treason “because of his support for the Easter Rising.” Not so.

Casement was put on trial for treason because, as a British subject (indeed, he had been a civil servant, first at the Colonial Office and then at the Foreign Office) he had committed various acts which were not only adjudged treasonous in the First World War but which would still be, on similar facts, today. Indeed, in WW2, some others were executed for far less. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Casement#Capture,_trial,_and_execution

William Joyce [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Joyce] was hanged merely for having broadcast from Germany [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_Haw-Haw].

The last statement of William Joyce: “In death as in life, I defy the Jews who caused this last war, and I defy the power of darkness which they represent. I warn the British people against the crushing imperialism of the Soviet Union. May Britain be great once again and in the hour of the greatest danger in the West may the standard be raised from the dust, crowned with the words – “You have conquered nevertheless”. I am proud to die for my ideals and I am sorry for the sons of Britain who have died without knowing why.”

It is not generally known that dozens of other actually-British people (Joyce’s nationality was and remains disputed) who broadcast from the Reich during WW2 were either not prosecuted or received short prison sentences. In other words, in Joyce’s case, as in that of Casement, political rather than legal expediences proved determinative.

John Amery [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Amery], who was hanged after WW2, did more or less the same as had Casement in WW1. He toured POW camps trawling for potential recruits etc. Indeed, Casement did more than that and, after all, was eventually arrested (by a solitary sergeant of the Royal Irish Constabulary) after having been landed ashore —awaiting an arms drop— on the “lonely Banna Strand”, from a German U-boat. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Casement#Irish_revolutionary.

[the “lonely Banna Strand”, where Sir Roger Casement was landed from a German U-boat in 1916]

In fact, the Irish rebels’ operation was a total botch: “Casement did not learn about the Easter Rising until after the plan was fully developed. The German weapons never landed in Ireland; the Royal Navy intercepted the ship transporting them, a German cargo vessel named the Libau, disguised as a Norwegian vessel, Aud-Norge. All the crew were German sailors, but their clothes and effects, even the charts and books on the bridge, were Norwegian.[citation needed] As John Devoy had either misunderstood or disobeyed Pearse’s instructions[citation needed] that the arms were under no circumstances to land before Easter Sunday, the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union (TGWU) members set to unload the arms under the command of Irish Citizen Army officer and trade unionist William Partridge were not ready. The IRB men sent to meet the boat drove off a pier and drowned.” [Wikipedia]

It can be seen that, however unfortunate in many ways Casement was, Mrs McAleese’s statement that he was hanged, as her memoirs seem to imply, simply because he “supported” the Easter Rising, seems to me to be disingenuous at best.

Until I looked her up on Wikipedia yesterday, I knew nothing much about Mrs McAleese. Seems that she was appointed a professor of laws at Trinity College, Dublin, when only 24 years of age, failed to get elected as a would-be politician, but was eventually adopted as Fianna Fail candidate for the Presidency of Ireland; she served two terms (14 years).

Casement, though not much known by the general public these days in England, is still a major historical figure in Ireland.

In the real sense (not the formal legal sense), what the LibLabCon-men (and women) have done in the past half-century is far more treasonous than whatever Sir Roger Casement did; and he was hanged for it…

While I certainly agree with Cummings (and have blogged so from the start) that Boris-idiot is unfit to be Prime Minister, Cummings is himself a personification of the crazy way in which Britain is run. Are there other countries where a person with effectively no track record could become such a power behind the political throne?

A degree in History, a few unsuccessful years trying to make money in Russia (including an airline which only made one flight), then an office bod at Conservative Party HQ for a number of years, then…all but running the UK’s administration.

I shall blog another day about the upcoming Batley and Spen by-election. My first thought about Galloway’s candidature is that he is a busted flush, with no real chance of even saving his deposit. On the other hand, if the by-election is as close as it might be (i.e. as close as I, provisionally, think that it might be), then Galloway getting, say, 2% might be the difference between a Conservative win and a Labour win.

The Brigade uses social media such as Twitter and Facebook as well as psyop techniques to influence populations and behaviour. David Miller, a professor of political sociology at the University of Bristol who studies British government propaganda and public relations, said that it is “involved in manipulation of the media including using fake online profiles“.[25][26][27]

In September 2019, Middle East Eye reported that Gordon MacMillan, a Twitter executive with editorial control over the Middle East and North Africa, is also a reservist officer in the 77th Brigade. Both Twitter and the British Army denied that they have a relationship or agreement. Miller said it was hypocritical of Twitter to close accounts alleged to be connected with non-Western governments while having links to the British Army.[28][29]

On 22 April 2020, during the UK government’s daily coronavirus briefing, General Nick Carter confirmed that 77th Brigade are working with the Home Office Rapid Response Unit “helping to quash rumours from misinformation, but also to counter disinformation”.[30][31][32]

On 7 May 2020, The Economist interviewed Carter on the role of 77th Brigade in fighting coronavirus disinformation.[33] The Defence Cultural Specialist Unit was used to monitor the internet for content on COVID-19 and to look for evidence of disinformation related to COVID-19 vaccines.[34]” [Wikipedia]

Where I live there are few of these machines, not very many blacks or browns, and few even of white “chavscums”, so the potential for misuse is limited, perhaps. I cannot get very worked up about them, nuisance though they are. If one were to impede my quite heavy car, I think I know who would emerge the victor.

Alison Chabloz

Latest news is that (whether by malicious interference by the Jew-Zionists, or because of bureaucratic ineptitude), Alison Chabloz is not going to be released early. It seems that she will now be released having served half her headline 18-week sentence, but minus the 4 days and part-days that she served in 2020 prior to her successful appeal.

The firm expectation now is that Alison will be released from prison on Friday 28 May 2021 (i.e. the day after tomorrow).

Alison’s appeal against conviction and sentence will be heard on 3-4 June 2021 in the Crown Court, probably at Southwark.

The bigger picture is the totally chaotic mess now presided over by the part-Jew political chancer, “Boris” Johnson.

It amused me to see the msm tying itself in knots over the question of whether “Boris” is fit to be PM. Are there still those who believe that he is? After over two years?

Boris-idiot is a gravity-defier, in both senses.

What if you don’t like “Boris” and his government? Well, then, this being a “democracy”, you can wait a few years and then vote for an ostensibly different party, which however will really be rather similar, except for some of the personnel.

I had one of those typical “lockdown”/”virus” experiences the other day.

I usually get fuel for car from an automatic pump quite a few miles away, so that I need not comply with the facemask nonsense, but I happened to be running low on fuel, so went to a nearer place, in fact the only nearer place.

Having put some fuel in the car, I went to the shop/kiosk to pay. I even donned a disposable facemask in order not to have to explain myself. Not enough! Having entered the shop, and as I was standing a few feet behind another customer, the cashier called to me and indicated that I should make a clockwise circuit of the island of shelves selling various goods, in order not to stand behind the customer already paying.

I noticed that little yellow circles with arrows had been applied to the floor. I had not noticed them on previous visits, and no-one had required me to make that little circuit, perhaps because I have usually been the only person waiting to pay in the shop.

Anyway, I made the circuit required, only to end up about…3 feet to the side of the customer paying! Apparently that was OK…

I recount this admittedly trivial experience as an example of how much of the population has thrown away all common sense since the virus “panicdemic” started in early 2020.

Isabel Oakeshott sells her civil rights cheaply! Why should she have to prove that she has been vaccinated, when firstly the virus is only fatal to one out of every 1,000 of the population and when, secondly, the vaccines are no guarantee of protection anyway?

Is the British population waking up yet? I doubt it. Sleeping. All but comatose. Vegetable-like.

What will it take to awaken the British people to the fact that “the virus” is nothing more than a reason, an excuse, and a facilitator, for a socio-political agenda?

When I was on Twitter, a large number of journalists and other “media folk”, as well as MPs, blocked me; with most of them I had had no direct contact. They simply did not want to even have to see, even inadvertently, any views that challenged their crippled world-view. Most of course, are dependent on the Jewish Zionist element for their large salaries and other monies. They are basically well-padded serfs.

Labour Party

The latest opinion polling:

Labour continues to bump along almost at the bottom of major-party credibility. As I have blogged often previously, Labour’s problem was not Corbyn, as such; neither is it Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer, as such. It stems more from Labour’s disappearing traditional base, and from Labour’s now almost invisible identity.

The opinion poll above does not show Conservative Party popularity so much as Labour Party unpopularity, of course. The point is, for what does Labour stand? Anything? As many have said, half-joking, it seems to be something akin to “workhouses are good, but we say let’s run them efficiently, and more fairly”. I do not think that that will attract many voters.

Of course, there are still pockets of die-hard Labour right-or-wrong support around. The sort of old-style Northern English tribalism that can be seen on TV in the Daily Mirror journalist Kevin Maguire (who in fact lives in some comfort in London).

That kind of ping-pong, cuckoo clock Con-Lab-Con-Lab politics is so out of date now. Especially when the policies of the supposed political rivals are almost identical.

In July, there will be held the Batley and Spen by-election. Labour is putting up the sister of the assassinated MP, Jo Cox, which MP has been all but canonized by the msm since her death in 2016.

I shall blog about the by-election when all runners and riders are in the frame, but what occurs to me at this stage is how desperate Labour must be to select as candidate someone purely because her sister was assassinated. Labour obviously hopes for some kind of sympathy vote, or “solidarity” vote. I doubt that it will work, but we shall have to see. Labour really has no other card to play.

Reality v. semblance

I have blogged about aspects of allied nonsense of that sort in the past: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/11/15/when-reality-becomes-subjective/

“Lockdown” and facemask nonsense

Nearly a third of all prosecutions brought under Covid-19 laws in the first year of the pandemic were incorrectly charged, a review has found…Police forces around the UK were handed powers by the government last March to enforce the ‘stay at home’ message and break up large gatherings of people…Officers were also empowered to prosecute people for breaking lockdown, not wearing masks on public transport, throwing house parties, and meeting in the street in groups.

However a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) review of court cases which had been concluded by March 31 this year found that 549 out of 1,821 had been incorrectly charged…Every one of the 270 prosecutions brought under the Coronavirus Act 2020 – which granted powers to direct infectious people into quarantine – had either been abandoned or convictions overturned.

The review also found that the wrong offences contained in a myriad of versions of the Health Protection regulations had been deployed by police officers.

The problems with the use of coronavirus offences were first identified last April, just days into the pandemic, when journalists noticed that a woman had been wrongly prosecuted and convicted under the Coronavirus Act in Newcastle.

The review found the Health Protection regulations had also been misapplied by police, using out-of-date rules and making mistakes such as deploying an offence specific to Wales for a London prosecution.

The review found that 1,272 of the 1,551 Health Protection regulation cases had been correctly charged, with some prosecutions abandoned due to insufficient evidence.

More than 1,000 Covid-19 cases have been brought to courts through the Single Justice Procedure, which allows a magistrate to deal with the case administratively instead of at an open court hearing.

Those cases are not reviewed at court by a prosecutor, and are instead processed by police forces.” [Evening Standard].

So once again the police failed to know, understand, and properly apply laws and regulations and, in this case, conflating these with (supposed) “rules”, and with cretinous “advice” given out by politicians and their ridiculous advisers.

“Antisemitism” is not a crime

That Metropolitan Police reply to the Jew troll Twitter account, “@gnasherjew”, displays an ignorance of the law irritatingly common among the police today.

Crown Court and other judges in, for example, the Alison Chabloz cases, have made it clear time after time in recent years that “antisemitism” is not a crime in England. Not a “hate crime”, not any kind of crime.

The same goes for so-called “holocaust” “denial” (an incident of historical revision and/or revisionism).

To use the language of the old-style bank managers, it is “disappointing” that the police, charged with upholding the law, so often now seem not to know or understand what the law actually is…

Twitter is full of the fact that the fake “British nationalist” known as Tommy Robinson has attended the quite small pro-Israel march in London, estimated as fewer than 10,000 (I think), compared to the 200,000-strong anti-Israel march recently.

[Update, same day: Seems that I was too generous (arguably a fault of mine); the pro-Israel march in London today was in fact only about 1,500 in number; Israelis, other Jews, and a few pro-Jew doormats. See https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/free-gaza-from-hamas-british-jews-rally-against-terrorism-in-central-london/]

I notice that the (((occupied))) msm photographed today’s march mostly close-up, to make it seem better-attended than it was.

“Robinson” is a political irrelevance, of course. Even a couple of years ago, when his profile was higher, his vote in the European elections (NW England) was only 2.2% [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommy_Robinson_(activist)#Political_activities].

The pro-Israel “activists” of that sort (others being “Prison Planet” Watson, Katie Hopkins etc) are just a distraction; wastes of space.

The Jews who organized today’s small pro-Israel demonstration (only 1,500 attended, out of 250,000+ Jews in the UK), have issued statements criticizing “Robinson” for having attended. They despise him, yet there he was, literally wrapping himself in the Israeli flag! What more can he possibly do to try to ingratiate himself with “them”?

In fact, was I too generous in thinking that the crowd today numbered even 1,500?

Some Jewish newspapers have said “thousands” attended…Well, I think that we know that “their” arithmetic is often very inflated and contrived!

Is this somehow surprising, when Hollywood is 99% controlled by Jews?

I have not had the vaccine(s), and have no intention of having any. Not necessarily because of any sinister aspects attaching to the vaccine(s); those claims may or may not be accurate. The fact is that the vaccines probably ward off the dreaded virus only somewhat anyway, as the virus mutates.

In any case, in the part of southern coastal England where I live, only 8 persons have died in the past month “within 28 days of a positive test”. Most of the 8, if not all, will have died from other causes (even car crashes!); it is very doubtful whether even 1 died “from” or even “with” Covid-19. That is in an area of 291 square miles, with a population of 180,000.

In other words, in the past month, in my part of England, 1 person has died “within 28 days of a positive test” (n.b. not “of” or even “with” Covid-19) out of every 22,500 inhabitants.

The whole “panicdemic” thing has become absolutely ridiculous in the UK, not least the facemask nonsense.

Meanwhile, people’s lives and health are trashed.

I have blogged about this sort of nonsense previously, over three years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/11/15/when-reality-becomes-subjective/.

The slow collapse of Ulster Unionism. Ironic. The Official IRA, and then the Provos, tried to storm into the future with their Armalite and other weapons, only to be defeated, tactically, in the field, but all the time, the Irish Republican community’s women, pushing out more babies on average than those of their Loyalist counterparts, were shifting the boundaries strategically, as the general Republican community’s numbers increased vis a vis those of the Loyalist community. Looks as though the tipping point is near.

There we have it— the Westminster Bubble. John Rentoul just cannot see that the BBC has, in the colloquial, “blown it” with the bulk of the British public, just as has the Labour Party. The BBC was both generally trusted and generally at least not disliked, but that was 20-30 years ago, Mr. Rentoul…

Unusually, John Rentoul beat me in this week’s quiz, scoring 7/10; I scored only 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 4, 5, and 9.

A reminder of mortality

I happened upon a notice from a well-known London criminal law set: https://www.farringdon-law.co.uk/news/farewell-to-our-true-gentleman-franco-tizzano. I then saw a Twitter announcement dated a few months ago to the same effect:

I was once slightly acquainted with the deceased. I had a few short conversations with him when we were both law degree and Bar Finals students (in the then terminology). I also encountered him a couple of times when I returned from the USA in 1993 and was doing my “second six” months of pupillage, when the fledgling barrister can earn a little money by appearing in court.

I recall that we happened to meet at Thames Mags not long after I had shaken the dust of New Jersey and New York off my shoes. I was doing the first appearance of a Jamaican accused of smuggling cocaine dissolved in rum.

[the not very beautiful Thames Magistrates’ Court, East London]

Tizzano was some years younger than me but was ahead of me at the Bar, I having spent a few years or part-years in the USA.

I recall that, on first meeting in 1984, Tizzano had explained that he came from Naples but that (if memory serves) he had been at an English boarding school. I understand that his father was a judge in Naples.

I remember that I remarked that “Naples is the warm heart of the world“, according to Shelley, to which Tizzano retorted, “was he mad?“!

Tizzano was a rather serious young man, in the grave Italian way. Someone with a certain dignified presence. Jet-black hair and a black moustache. I see that, in later life, that was complemented by a beard.

I understand that he had a busy criminal practice in later years: I would sometimes see his name in newspaper crime reports, though I think that the last time I saw Tizzano in person was in 1993 or 1994.

A reminder that we are all on Earth for a limited time, and must do what we can while we are here.

Talk about adding insult to injury! James Cleverly, proud possessor of a degree in “Hospitality Management” from the University of West London.

Martin Bashir

What is not generally known about Bashir is that, in 2018, he stalked persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz. That was around the time that Alison Chabloz was convicted of posting her songs online, after a lengthy and very morally-dubious campaign (both overt and covert) by Jewish Zionists of the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”.

Bashir stalked both Alison and her aged parents, with whom she was staying at the time. Bashir travelled to the small village, in the Peak District of Derbyshire, where they lived, and after failing to be granted an interview with anyone, hung around the village and the house itself. He was seen trying to hide in the garden of the house, standing in flower beds etc. He even peered through firmly-closed windows.

Bashir is not the only very sleazy person to have effectively headed the BBC’s virtually God-free religious output. There have been some very dubious characters in the past too.

Bashir followed the now-usual BBC “religious” agenda: sanctify Jewish things, normalize Muslim things, ignore or twist anything Christian.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Bashir

As for Alison Chabloz, at time and date of writing she is still in prison (having been sentenced on 31 March 2021) for having made some more or less true remarks about Jews on an internet “radio” broadcast. If not released earlier, she will be released next week, having by then served about 8 weeks (half of her 18-week sentence minus 4 days).

Hitchens overrates his influence (and the extent to which his opposition to the “panicdemic” was tainted by association). The anti-lockdown and anti-shutdown side lost the argument with the public not because “lizardist” and other people also opposed the shutdown, and not because the opponents of “lockdown” were mistaken, but because the bulk of the British people have become spineless serfs of the “woke” police state. That applies even more to the retirement-age Middle Englanders than it does to the young and middle-aged.

The “lockdown” shutdown has also been promoted by massive propaganda campaigns, utilizing whipped-up and unnecessary fear as a driver.

Then there is the fact of the huge amount of public money thrown at the “furloughed” employees and also some businesses. Hush money?

The fact is that only 1 in a thousand UK residents has been killed (even on doubtful statistics) by the Covid-19 virus. Yet the campaign continues. In the rural, semi-rural and semi-suburban part of Southern England where I live, there are over 180,000 inhabitants (in a rather large and dispersed population and area). In the past month, there have been 8 deaths of people who have been tested and confirmed as having this virus, and who died within 28 days of testing (even if later killed in road accidents).

Still, even on the face of the absurd statistics, look at the proportion! Only 8 out of 180,000+…

About 1 out of every 22,500 local residents.

The facemask nonsense also continues, with a push now to continue it indefinitely, despite the fact that the medical effect is minimal. There again, the real reason the System wants facemasks has nothing to do with any virus.

That sort of madness started to erode the Church of England long long ago, which is why scarcely anyone now attends a church except to dance round the customary baptism, marriage and death rituals.

Gaza

In the UK and other Western societies, fanatical Zionist Jews exercise their censorship in different ways, such as trying to have anti-Zionists such as Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, David Icke, and me (among others) shut down, “deplatformed”, even arrested and prosecuted.

I myself have never had any interest in the Eurovision circus, but have also never understood why Israel, a leech state situated in the Middle East, the population of which state is not European, is in Eurovision anyway. Kick it out. Boycott it.

Note the very (((characteristic))) hand gesture made by it.

As a matter of fact, that poster is well out of date. According to an American expert interviewed on BBC Radio 4 PM yesterday, the Jewish state now gets USD $4BN annually from the American taxpayers. A leech state. What a surprise…

In that case, I hope that Murray will now, belatedly, say something in support of people such as Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, David Icke, me, and others, “deplatformed”, disbarred (in my case), even imprisoned (in the cases of Alison Chabloz and Jez Turner of the now-defunct London Forum).

So far, nothing (because Murray is pro-Jew and pro-Israel…were he not, he would not be where he is, of course…).

There is now, and has been for the past decade or more, a whole raft of “controlled opposition” figures and organizations in the UK, some witting agents of the System, others merely manipulated. Breitbart. UKIP. Brexit Party. Reform Party. EDL. The “Football Lads’ Alliance”. Farage (perhaps the most important and the most wittingly used). Katie Hopkins. Tommy Robinson. Toby Young. James Delingpole. The “Free Speech Union”.

The touchstone is always their attitude to Israel and Jewry. They always support, or pretend to support, Israel and/or the Jews.

The latest catspaw? Laurence Fox.

The sort of literate, thoughtful piece rarely seen on UK television today. I mean there are no blacks and browns to be seen, no references to the “panicdemic” either.

Betjeman was not the only one to make such TV programmes in the 1960s and 1970s, even sometimes 1980s. Ray Gosling, coming from a very different ideological direction, also made some interesting TV: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Gosling#Broadcasting_career; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Betjeman.

Looks nice. I was probably a fool to have turned down the possibility of becoming an undergraduate there (by a back-door route) in 1984 (I wanted to stay in London for various reasons).

Living in the UK in 2021, I do not know whether one can say whether Sweden is now officially more mad than the UK…a close-run thing, anyway.
