Sad, brutal, unnecessary.

I wonder what on Earth Maxim Gorky would make of such an American city, were he to be alive today?! It will be recalled that he wrote The City of the Yellow Devil about New York City. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxim_Gorky.

Having said that, “Philly” has always had a rough underside. When I was with my first wife (a Federal employee), driving in Philadelphia after watching a baseball game at the old Veterans’ Stadium in (I think) 1990, along with her colleagues (an annual office outing), we saw a mugger grab a woman’s handbag and run away fast. My wife, who was driving, accelerated, and we chased the robber down the narrow street until he darted down a side alley.

Which is the bigger scam? The “panicdemic” fear campaign, or the UK’s binary electoral “choice”? How many Goves can dance on the head of a pin?

Closely followed, perhaps equalled, by the control and influence exercized by the Jew-Zionist lobby.

Facemask nonsense declines

Over the past 24 hours, I have been in several retail outlets. The facemask nonsense is in rapid decline everywhere, thank God. Having said that, the dictatorial powers misused by the Government remain in place. I should not be surprised to see a reimposition of the facemask diktat as the weather grows cooler.

Bob Edwards, cartoonist

I may be completely mistaken, but I am wondering whether the clever cartoonist who came to prominence during the 2020 UK “lockdown” shutdown, “Bob” (see a few cartoons below this text) is the same as the young man, Bob Edwards, who used to draw cartoons for League Review, the journal of the League of St. George, circa 1977?

It may be. I noticed last year that the Jew-Zionist element (mostly pro-“lockdown”, pro-facemasks, and in fact in favour of all curbs to freedom) seemed to be hostile to “Bob’s” cartoons and to him. Also, I think that his surname is Edwards. Yes…here is his Twitter account: https://twitter.com/robertedwards47?lang=en.

Looking at his recent tweets, it seems that his political views are less radical than mine, now (in fact, I have no idea exactly what his were “back in the day”).

I met the 1970s cartoonist a few times when I was a member of the League of St. George (1976-1978). That 1970s Edwards was, if I recall aright, a medical student or medical school drop-out. A lady who shall be nameless (and who may or may not still be alive) once told me, I think in 1978, that she had told that young man (who was interested in her) that, if he stopped drinking and passed his medical degree, she would reward him… As far as I know, that never happened. He missed out. She was a lady of her word. Memory Lane…

[Update, 12 September 2021: In fact, I was mistaken: the Daily Telegraph cartoonist is Bob Moran, not Bob Edwards. Moran also has a Twitter account]
