A textbook example of the unreality that was Corbyn-Labour. Tweeter “@jrc1921” actually showcases the calculations of BBC journalist Chris Mason, and does not seek to say that they are inaccurate, but persists in the idea that planting 200 trees per minute (i.e. more than 3 every second!) is both “feasible” and ” relatively conservative”!

True, a British equivalent of the 1970s Khmer Rouge could, in principle, get millions of people planting trees, even on such a scale. 100 million trees per year could be planted, were every single adult of appropriate age to plant 2 trees per year.

The devil is in the administrative detail. That is the unreality. Organizing 50 million people to plant 1 tree each, every 6 months. How? Where?

Not that I am against tree planting. Au contraire. Let’s do some good! Let’s have some fun!

Political reality is what people can accomplish, and so to that extent is flexible, not fixed. Sometimes 2+2 can = 5… To that extent, I agree with the tweeter above, and not only with Chris Mason. Both are right, if you like…

Exactly my position, in the mundane sense. I call it social nationalism.

Not sure why intelligent commentators such as Hitchens persist in trying to squeeze people and policies into the now almost meaningless “Left”/”Right” straitjacket(s).

…and guess (((who))) or (((what))) is behind most of the repression of opinion in the UK? The (((You know who)))…

Exactly. Two moribund political parties. For the electorate, a false binary choice with, in general, the same sort of policies coming out in the end (in government).

The early 1960s (or late 1950s) comment about “redbrick” university expansion, by (?) Kingsley Amis [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingsley_Amis], that “more will mean worse“, may have been partly snobbism, but God knows what he would have made of the 2021 situation, with so many “McUniversities” that one has not even heard the names of many of them; God only knows, also, what Amis would have thought of a Government minister (James Cleverly), whose “degree” is apparently in “Hospitality Management”; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Cleverly#Early_life_and_education.

Of course, the young people, say under 21, who support the nonsense put out by Extinction Rebellion and Greta Nut, were only 9 (or younger) when the chaotic and ludicrous 2009 Climate Change conference was held in Copenhagen. I remember it mainly for the little monkey who was President or Prime Minister for the Maldives, and who was constantly excitedly clapping above his head, especially when some delegates said that Europe should direct much money to countries facing inundation (in fact, 12 years on, and the Maldive islands are still there…). https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/The-Vote/2009/1220/Chaos-in-Copenhagen-behind-the-scenes-at-global-warming-summit

There may be climate change, in some degree (e.g. Australia is now certainly much hotter than it was in the 1960s when I was there), but that has happened throughout history. Humanity is only partly responsible. Moreover, whatever Britain, or even Europe does, is of small, indeed minimal, importance. Britain’s CO2 “emissions” are about 1% of the global whole.

“Climate change”, like “Covid-19” and other stuff (eg “Black Lives Matter” nonsense) has been distorted and weaponized by transnational conspirators, in order to impose an agenda. Call it “The Great Reset” (in part), if you like.

Ironic. The best way (perhaps the only way) in which Britain’s depleted navy could defend the UK now would be to sink the ships of the UK “Border Force”…

  1. I am glad to hear that [redacted] by one of the subhumans who keep arriving in England courtesy of the government and the cowardice of the English people. Considering that ALL Christian churches are nowadays rabidly anti-white and pro-open borders this [redacted].

    Changing the subject and remembering the tantalizing Banoffee Pie, what do you think of the famous Pavlova cake? Australians and New Zealanders keep arguing about who invented it (LOL)

      I regret that, by reason of the increasing repression on free speech in the UK, I had to censor your post slightly…Sorry that you have been caught up in the imperial hypocrisy!

      1. You were right in censoring it. I realized a bit too late that it was pretty bad. That is why I was kicked out of Twitter! I am a bloody hothead!

        Regarding the Pavlova cake is funny you said that my wife and I lived in Australia for 11 years and I don’t remember buying one (perhaps because I am not a lover of meringue) but I do remember with affection the delicious Lamington cake. Have you seen them in England?

      2. Thank you for the Arab desserts, I just went to a website that has some mouth-watering recipes and photos. What a masochist! LOL

        Last week, I discovered that Argentina has an Arab community of nearly 2.500.000 people; considering that the total population is only 42.000.000, it is fairly important, therefore it is easy to buy Arab delicacies in Buenos Aires.

        Interestingly, nearly 80% of the people of Arab descent who live in Argentina are Christians, mostly from Levanon or Syria.

        I know that the Israeli spy who was hanged in Damascus in the early 1960s went to Argentina to mix with the Syrians there and acquire a “legend” (faked background) before going to Damascus as a “Syrian Arab” from Argentina. Rather like the way that Russian or other Soviet agents used to come to the UK in the 1950s/1960s and pose as Canadians etc.

        Re. Arab desserts, I suppose that you could get your wife to substitute some ersatz sugar such as Stevia for real sugar. I am not well-versed in such things, so do not know whether that would work.

        I myself prefer savoury things, though I do quite like *proper* sherry trifle with plenty of sherry etc (once in a blue moon), and one day I may try the Scottish dessert, cranachan. Not yet.
