Well, this week brought another victory over Blairite political journalist John Rentoul: he scored 4/10 to my 8/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1 and 10.
Unsurprising. If you import the culturally and racially inferior, you import, with them, their politics and social attitudes. Corruption, cronyism, tribalism, clan loyalty etc. Yes, we too have some of those, but not exclusively, or to the same extent.
Apart from that, some authors are hard to film well or credibly. A few that come to my mind would be E.W. Hornung (Raffles etc), G.K. Chesterton (Father Brown stories etc), and John le Carre.
The BBC (partly thanks to Alec Guinness) did well with the TV series Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and Smiley’s People. Peter Egan’s performance in A Perfect Spy, likewise, was stellar, lifting the level considerably, the short series complex but good.
Other attempts at filming le Carre have mostly fallen rather flat: the fairly recent Tinker, Tailor… film, The Tailor of Panama (rubbish), The Constant Gardener etc. Some were “all right”: The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, The Looking-Glass War, The Little Drummer Girl.
Another author whose books have not filmed well (admittedly, I believe I only saw one of the films, Gorky Park) is Martin Cruz Smith. A rare Western author (American at that) able to get under the Soviet skin, but the film or films let him down.
I am moved to repost my blog from January of 2019: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/.

As frequently seen today, a tweeter confuses helping people with telling people that they must do this or that, or not do this or that.
Hitchens has far more patience than me. Logic is “not required on voyage” in the UK of 2021; many make do without it,
I have blogged recently about the transition Australia has made from being “the lucky country” of the 1950s and 1960s (abundance, civil rights, prosperity, a great degree of personal freedom, an almost-entirely white European population) to today’s far more populated, multiracial, multikulti, “woke”, and stressed mess of a country, which seems to have combined the worst aspects of both finance-capitalism and old-style socialist control.
I would never have believed it, having been there for nearly three years as a child (1967-69).
We are, naturally, opposed to the increasing proportion of non-Europeans in the UK and Europe generally, but we must not forget that much of the white English population is composed of useless, uncultured deadheads, who also offer nothing but, in their case, (possible) genetic material for the creation of a future super-race. The level of those English people has to be raised; if not, then they too are useless and will have to be jettisoned.
More from the new Australian “woke” police state. Those “police” were akin to the “co-workers” of the the militia (police) in the Soviet Union.
The msm and many of its journalists or scribblers are collusive. They know or guess much of the transnational conspiracy, but collude with it for reasons of personal advancement. They are, in effect, enemy elements.
Exactly. The System needs at least two “major parties” (even if their combined membership is only about 600,000, i.e. 1% of the UK population) because it preserves the facade of a binary choice, the facade of supposed “democracy” etc. So fake Labour has to exist, just as fake Conservative Party has to exist, in order to fool the mass of the people into thinking that they have a real choice. They do not have any such choice.
Labour, like the “Conservatives” has to exist and pretend to put forward a bunch of policies, when really both parties have been stripped of real policy, real difference, and even real politicians (look at the pathetic deadheads now crowding the Commons and Lords alike). You want to see what “ZOG” looks like? Just look at “British” political parties and MPs today.
The (((propaganda narrative))) never stops in occupied UK.
Both are false: the UK no longer has a “worldbeating” Army, Navy, and Air Force (etc), and/but the forces available could stop the migration-invasion.
I wonder when reality (as to the first) will kick in? When Britain’s “show the flag” warship —proposed to be sent to the South China Sea— meets China’s 800+ warships and submarines?
From the horse’s mouth…or should that be the reptile’s?
“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”… [Revelation, 13:17].
Or the PIN of his name?
On so-called “Freedom Day”, or the day after, 90% or more of shoppers in my local Waitrose were masked. I was not, of course. What a difference nearly a month makes. Today, only about half, in fact quite possibly below half.
