I have blogged previously about Hartlepool’s significant by-election, which is being held today: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/05/05/diary-blog-5-may-2021-with-more-thoughts-about-the-hartlepool-by-election-and-latest-news-about-alison-chabloz/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/04/06/hartlepool-by-election-2021-preliminary-look/.
Mainstream media are predicting a Conservative Party victory, while continuing to pretend that a contest between two very similar System parties (and a few cranks and no-chances) is “democracy”, though it seems that, thanks to FPTP voting, the main binary choices will capture about 90%, maybe 95%, of all votes cast.
Turnout will probably be quite low.
I was just looking at a couple of tweets about the contest:
That refers to the outgoing (going, gone…) MP, Mike Hill, who denies sex pest allegations but who decided to stand down as MP because of them. Hm…Still, he can always return to work at the local library…or do a bit of useless trade union droning…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Hill_(British_politician)].
People may be surprised that I repost the tweet of a Jew-Zionist scribbler, but “there is no religion higher than truth”, as they say.
The fact is that communities such as Hartlepool are clutching at straws. That does not mean that they are totally stupid. True, the misnamed “Conservatives” are not worthy, and they have been in power, nationally, for 11 years now, but the voters of Hartlepool have had Labour MPs for nearly 50 years, and feel exploited. They can only bin Labour by voting Conservative (or at least staying at home and not voting).
In some countries at some times, failed political parties (members of) face imprisonment and even execution. In the UK, we are kinder. Those parties simply face political death. It happened to the once-all-powerful Liberal Party (though a ghostly shadow still exists, the LibDems), it is now happening to both Labour and Conservative parties. Labour first to go, it seems.
That one, above, the well-known Jewish actress, used to block me on Twitter, I think (my Twitter account was closed down by a Jew-Zionist claque-barrage of complaints in 2018) and even tweet against me occasionally. Correct here, though. Look at that tweet by one Grace Blakely:
Where does one start? Perhaps by expressing “surprise” (no, not really, not these days) that a young woman [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Blakeley] from a privileged background, privately-educated in Hampshire, and with (for what it is worth these days) a “First” from Oxford, prefers the philosophical-psychological term “ressentiment” to the straightforward standard English “resentment”…I suppose that she picked that up while doing her PPE back-of-postcard degree at St. Peter’s, Oxford. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ressentiment
Secondly, by examining the claim that those with a “degree” (even if a “McDegree” from a “McUniversity”, are “the educated“. That is so Blair-1997…pretty outdated as a expression of reality.
Sadly, the “degree” from a “university” is no guarantee of real education, now that nearly half of all persons over 17 go to a “university”. Going to Oxford is no guarantee either, as both Grace Blakely and, for another example, Louise Mensch (if anyone remembers that stupid creature) bear witness.
As a matter of fact, both of the above are also examples of the pointlessness or near-pointlessness of Twitter. Grace Blakely has, apparently, 132,000 Twitter “followers”, while the lunatic Mensch has (looking at her Twitter account for the first time in a couple of years) 281,000! One Direction pop group has 31.5 million!
Grace Blakely is apparently appointed as a Visiting Fellow at the Open University! This country is so screwed, it really is…
More tweets seen
So what is left of the Royal Navy is being used to show the flag in a fishing dispute with a close ally of this country (Brexit notwithstanding), but 200+ migrant-invaders are being “rescued” and then escorted across the Channel by the same navy and/or the ludicrous Border Force, every day. Mad…
Arguably unfair, because the misnamed “Conservatives” are really as bad as equally-misnamed “Labour”, but the Tony Blair Labour government deliberately imported millions of non-Europeans with the express intent of destroying Britain’s racial and cultural foundation. The Jewess, Barbara Roche, a minister of state under Blair, admitted as such privately. Labour now is really just the party of the blacks and browns and/or the public service workers (and a few other smaller groups). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Roche; https://www.migrationwatchuk.org/press-article/83; https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/tony-blair/12175813/Tony-Blair-accused-of-conspiracy-over-mass-immigration.html.
That made me laugh. My own blogs about Dominic Cummings: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/01/03/dominic-cummings-a-government-of-dystopia-and-lunacy-posing-as-genius/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/.
True up to a point.
Were I maliciously-inclined, I suppose that I should encourage pedestrians to push off the riders whenever seen. However, where I live there are few “e-scooters” (in fact, I believe that I have only seen one), so on this occasion I shall say “none of my business”.
The revolution devours its own children…
This time, involving the tiny and unpleasant “Resisting Hate” “antifascist” troll-org, led by the well-fed Roanna Carleton-Taylor of (near) Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
Seems that either Roanna Carleton-Taylor or an associate (she uses several Twitter accounts anyway) posted something involving a banana to a black, which apparently is considered “racist”, though I cannot see why. I myself eat the occasional yellow fruit, after all.
Anyway, there ensued a several-days-long Twitter storm in a teacup, which dragged in “Dr” Louise Raw (prolific pro-“antifa” tweeter) and at least one mentally-disturbed Jewish Zionist woman from North London.
“Dr” Raw has not tweeted for the past week, I now notice.
I concede that I have not followed the nonsense, and am merely amused at the supposed “anti-racists” of different types all tearing chunks out of each other.
The denouement? Roanna “antifashwitch”, the former “@Witchofpeace” on Twitter (she tweeted once about how she kills spiders when putting a curse on someone! Odd…I thought that that brought down bad luck upon the killer…), has changed her account to “@oilpaintwitch” and has posted this:
Can you “resign” from an “organization” that is just you yourself, with a few other idiots? Oh, well, there it is.
Well, I do not pretend to have followed the progress of this silly (and typical) Twitter-spat between groups of Twitter trolls whose greatest achievement (in their own little minds) is when someone of whom they disapprove is “deplatformed” by being expelled from Twitter or Facebook. In fact, I seem to remember that (((Roanna))) and (((some))) associates tweeted happily about my wrongful disbarment in 2016: for the disbarment, see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.
As I have blogged previously, I have never seen any of these sorts of “antifascist” and/or Jewish Zionist trolls offer any policies or ideas about how to improve society (except by advocating the “removal” of those they deem “Nazi”, “fascist”, “racist” etc). It’s all negative and all, at root, based around their own hate (they, unwittingly ironically, always claim to oppose “hate”, of course…). cf. “Hope Against Hate” etc.
I have to admit that I am rather curious as to what happened to the £12,000 that Roanna, Mike Stuchbery (the pro-“antifa” tweeter, would-be “journalist”, would-be “historian” and general grifter), and a Pakistani solicitor extracted, via GoFundMe, from 700 well-meaning (?) mugs, on the premise that Stuchbery was going to sue “Tommy Robinson” (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon). Never happened. As far as I know, the only action taken was a very poorly-drafted letter from the Pakistani, which may or may not have been delivered to “Robinson”.
For me, that whole “sue Tommy Robinson” thing reads like an out and out scam. I may be wrong, but if I am, what did happen to the money? https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/11/27/mike-stuchbery-and-tommy-robinson-legal-dispute/.
London Mayoral election
Apparently, one of the minor candidates for London Mayor has been associating with some alleged fraudsters: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/should-someone-who-wants-london-24047689. Strangely enough, though, I saw nothing in the msm about the fairly recent video put out by “Conservative” candidate Shaun Bailey, which featured a woman best described as a “Balkan fraud”, and who was convicted of both fraud and forgery at Southwark Crown Court in 2013. Come to that, Bailey himself was, arguably, lucky not to face more than a police investigation when his non-profit quasi-charity had to be wound up some years ago. Oddly enough, all the monies had disappeared, and large amounts had apparently been spent on hotels and restaurants for…Shaun Bailey.
Fortunately for West Indian-origined Bailey, the voters in today’s election will have voted by the time I post this; in any case, Bailey has little chance of beating Sadiq Khan in the contest.
I wonder why the Conservative Party picked Bailey? I remember seeing him on one of the Andrew Neil politics shows on the BBC, years ago. Unimpressive. A West Indian with a big mouth and not much of interest to say. I suppose that, London now being a mainly non-white city, the Con Party decided that it needed a non-white candidate. Well, that fell flat (it seems).

Hello Ian: As you may guess I am not as nice or considerate as you and I would be pushing e-scooters riders left, right and centre. (LOL) I read Peter Hitchens’ article about it and it made me mad. He is right! What’s wrong with these morons? Can’t they walk? Typical idiotic city slickers with more money than sense! I swear if I see one of them coming towards me he/she would end on the pavement.
I think that I read somewhere that most of these e-scooters are not actually licensed for road travel (and cannot be used on pavement either) but I may be wrong about that.
Ah, just looked it up: “Under UK law, it’s permitted to ride an electric scooter on private land as long as you have the landowner’s permission. But it’s an offence to ride them in public – including on paths, pavements and roads. … Riding without a licence could see you fined up to £1,000 and given points, the Metropolitan Police has said”. So there it is.
I studied Ms Blakely’s text as a substantive editor does when the author’s ‘sentence’ fails to make sense, and is therefore not a sentence at all. The substantive editor undertakes to reconstruct such sentences. That is an undertaking that amounts to nothing more than that the editor will do her best to distil what it is that the author intended to say, then go ahead and say it.
The immediately obvious failure of Ms Blakely’s text is that she attempted to write a complex sentence but could not control it. What she actually wrote is impenetrable nonsense. This is what I would have sent back to her, had she come to me with a request that I edit it:
‘I think the contempt for Labour that dubs it ‘the party of students’ might reflect a ressentiment fuelled by the educated. This in turn reflects the dominance of the self-assessed ‘skilled entrepreneur’ who sees education as a bad investment in human capital that inflates the value of the recipients.’
What’s the betting that she would have come back to me with the rebuke that I ruined her writer’s style. My temptation would have been to tell her that she is not a writer and does not have a style.
But really! Oxford (albeit only St Peter’s!) gave her a First Class degree? This saddens me.
Thank you for that erudite comment.
The lady of letters is only within one small subset of the Labour Party, of course. The larger subsets are the “blacks and browns” and the public service employees. I suppose that the whole lot amount to only about 25% of the total electorate (nationally), if that. That is Labour’s main problem.
And the next problem is the goof Kneeler Starmer? But I do take your point.
When you referenced the “blacks and browns” I instantly thought of the insolent fool Dravidian-looking woman at Cambridge who came up with the world-shaking thesis that ‘White lives don’t matter’. And her defence of this thesis? This: ‘White lives don’t matter as White lives. As White lives they are nothing special.’ Oh, the dazzling perspicacity of this reasoning! And Cambridge distinguished her for it. What the heck is going on at the highest level of academia?
Treachery of that sort is endemic in parts of UK academia.Cambridge is one of the worst for it. If I were to say what I really think, I should have the toytown police or poundland KGB at my door or on the telephone, boring me as they have done in past years, so I leave that to your imagination.

Yes, but while the lady (Jayda Fransen) certainly has confidence, as a political stunt I do not rate it terribly highly.

I should not be surprised.
Hello Ian: You find some fantastic little gems on Twitter, look at this one:
