Unacceptable

No-one wants innovation to stop, but it really is unacceptable for any one individual to control (“own”) more than a billion pounds. In fact, I would put the maximum at a hundred million.

Would young inventors and/or “entrepreneurs” be discouraged from inventing or working because they might end up with “net worth” of a mere £100,000,000? I doubt it.

In fact, society should look at an income cap too, perhaps somewhere around £500,000 (after tax).

Further, there should be a limit on the amount of land any one individual or company can hold.

The former SIS Chief, Sir Richard Dearlove, suggested something similar last year but seems to have been shut down.

The “West” seems to be afraid of confronting not even China itself, but the very idea that China may have, even if only accidentally, released the virus. At root, the “Western” leaders do not want to have to confront China itself, because that would mean having to punish China. Punishing China would not be easy (whether the punishment were military or economic), would damage the West itself, and might lead to ferocious retaliation.

MPs and ministers who are now floating the idea of mandatory “vaccination” injections for the whole, or the vast bulk of, the UK population, are effectively State terrorists. If they succeed in passing laws or regulations of that sort, they must be prepared to face the consequences.

Vale, et in memoriam

I happened to see that Twitter activist Maureen Fitzsimmons has died: https://voxpoliticalonline.com/2021/12/30/tributes-pour-in-for-left-wing-social-media-activist-maureen-fitzsimmons/; and https://dorseteye.com/maureen-anne-fitzsimmons-a-warrior-for-us-all/.

While we were not exactly on the same ideological page, and I knew nothing about her beyond what she tweeted, she often supported me online in years past, and sometimes retweeted my tweets (until a pack of Jews had me expelled in 2018).

I have seen hundreds of supportive tweets about her this morning, the testimonials only marred by a few unpleasant tweets by two or three fanatical Jew-Zionists (anonymous, hiding under rocks, as usual). They have even attacked, via insults on Twitter, her grieving sister and family. “They” really have no decency, and that comes out constantly; they cannot disguise it. Ingrained…

Is the huge and increasing deception in the msm one reason why (apart from the fact that he is a white man) Adam Boulton left Sky News? Was he unwilling to continue? I wonder…

Regret the red flag but, after all, Sovietism, like original National Socialism, has now passed into history.

Labour Party

Regular readers of the blog will know that I was never very favourable to Corbyn. Poorly-educated, not hugely intelligent, and not a defender of Western (i.e. European, or European-origined) civilization. His worship of the blacks and browns was particularly absurd, as was his Meccano-level political canon and understanding (“No pasaran!“, “Cable Street” etc).

According to his ex-wives, he never reads a book, a trait he shares with the part-Jew, part-Levantine poseur presently occupying the office of Prime Minister.

Corbyn was never really or properly “anti-Semitic” either, despite the claims made by the Jewish or Zionist lobby. He always paid lip-service to the “holocaust” farrago, for example. Also, while he may have opposed Jewish/Zionist exploitation in Israel, he never came out and opposed it vocally in the UK, France, or elsewhere (eg USA). Weak.

Corbyn was let down by most of his MPs, not least “near-beer” post-Stalinist John McDonnell, someone who “thought he could be king” only to find that he was a political mugged pensioner.

Having said that, Corbyn was conspired against from the start by an Israeli and UK Jewish cabal; as soon as he became Labour Party leader. His only chance was to go all-out for social nationalism, but he was personally incapable, constitutionally, of doing that.

In fact, the tweet I have reposted above makes good points. The fault lay not with Corbyn but with Labour, and its whole ethos and raison d’etre in a post-Thatcher and, more significantly, post-1989 world, where old-style socialism, in all forms, has died (unless you include a few odd enclaves such as North Korea).

Keir Starmer, the Jewish-lobby’s favourite, and now puppet-leader of Labour, is only level with, or ahead of, the present idiot Prime Minister because that idiot is simply not fit for his office. That has impacted the opinion polling vis a vis the two main System parties.

All the same, look at the Labour vote in recent by-elections: North Shropshire— 10%; Chesham and Amersham— 1.6%.

My view is that, if the Conservative Party ditches Boris-idiot in 2022, then it will overhaul fake “Labour” easily, so long as the new PM is a white man (or woman).

Starmer has nothing to say except “Labour supports most of what the Conservatives are doing, but the Government should be doing more of it, and better, while down on one knee to the blacks [actually to the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan conspiracy] and also wearing a facemask.”

More societal craziness

Just saw a series of tweets by some crazed Jew, to the effect that non-Jews playing Jewish roles in film is “antisemitic” and should be decried as inadmissible “Jew-face”, just as it is becoming the politically-correct standard now that non-blacks (i.e. Europeans or European-race people) should not play black roles, because that is inadmissible “blackface”, even when it has hundreds of years of cultural provenance, as with Othello, the Moor of Venice. (and does that mean that only North Africans should play Othello? He is not a black African, after all). What nonsense it all is!

What about Jews playing non-Jews (Europeans)? Apparently that is OK…; also OK (it seems) is when a black plays a European (i.e. white) role. Even Anne Boleyn was recently played by a black woman, American at that!

The double standard again. The Great Replacement. White Genocide. Oh, and I bet that, with almost all of that, there is a Jew behind it…(if I am wrong, send me the details, i.e. evidence, and I shall update this part of the blog; I shall not be anxiously waiting, though).

Some film and video with “blackface”:

An actor playing Othello, the Moor of Venice, becomes obsessed. The full film:

Below, the Black and White Minstrels (UK, 1960s/1970s), harmless mass entertainment now considered (by the “woke”) wickedly “racist”…:

Below, black “Anne Boleyn” (not), with a black courtier to boot!

Anne Boleyn

Is black “Anne Boleyn” (and all those Grantchester and Endeavour episodes where half the population of towns and villages in 1950s or 1960s England is black or brown) “racist”, or “cultural appropriation” (as well as presenting a false picture)? You decide. Take a look (((what))) is behind most of it.

More tweets

Ah, so it is OK for a Jew to have a “kindred, bone ancestral feeling“, but not white Northern Europeans? Are there a few of our people beginning to awake? I hope so…

For God’s sake, anyone reading this and who has never heard of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan— Google it, and read about it.

Look at that and listen to what she has to say.

I have not had any “vaccine” for “Covid” or anything else connected with the “panicdemic”, and will not be having anything. Any attempt to compel me to do so will be taken by me as a declaration of war by the State and its agents upon the citizen (in this case, me). Anyone enabling or facilitating such an attack will be considered as guilty. I apprehend that many echo my sentiments and my resolve.

Oh, and meanwhile…Labour Friends of Israel drone, Lucy Powell, has not only been urging censorship of dissident views online in respect of the “panicdemic”, but also (quelle surprise) in respect of so-called “antisemitism””:

Yet Lucy Powell claims to be interested in “the civil liberties of everyone“. Oh, really? Needless to say, she has never said a word in defence of (inter alia) me, Alison Chabloz, David Icke, Katie Hopkins, and all the thousands of others facing attack (often from the Jewish lobby), expelled from Twitter, and/or losing jobs and professions etc.

This is Lucy Powell:

“In September 2018, Powell introduced legislation in the House of Commons to ban secret, private, invite-only groups on Facebook and hold moderators legally responsible for hate speech or defamation on forums.[26][27] She is a member of Labour Friends of Israel.[28]” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucy_Powell.

Labour has to be reduced to rubble, even if at the cost of continuing this stupid government of incompetence.

Amazing compilation. Ecce the wonderful medical “experts” and scientists!

Were there any true satire left on UK or other Anglosphere TV, this would bring the house down; instead we have BBC “house-serfs” such as Paul Merton, Ian Hislop etc, all laughing at what they are allowed to laugh at, just like the old Soviet “satirical” magazine, Krokodil. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krokodil

Essentially, the System allows the (well-paid/bought) “comics”, the Hislops, the Mertons, the Jimmy Carrs, the Al Murrays, to laugh at white people, “anti-vaxx” people, people wanting to stop mass immigration; they are very certainly not allowed to laugh at Jews, blacks, most browns, facemask zealots, pro-vaccine obsessives etc.

We are at least in the forecourt of a police state, but one posing (for now) as a caring, sharing, rainbow-“nation” state.

Personal picture

I saw for the first time in years this picture of me aged 10-11, sometime in 1967. Middle Harbour school, Mosman (Sydney, NSW). (the “5R” refers to year 5 and the name of the schoolmaster, Mr. Riddle).

image.png

54 years ago. I still recall the Christian names or surnames of a few of them, and a few details about them. Incidentally, I am the rather confident-looking little fellow in the second row up, third from the right, with striped tie, arms folded.

The black girl in the centre was an Aboriginal who spent part of the year at the school, and part with her family in the Northern Territory, thousands of miles away; some kind of Federal government integration programme.

I wonder how life turned out for them all…

Covid “cases” in hospital: scam exposed yet again

The above parody is not that far from what actually happened in 2020. The sheer hysteria of not only the police but also a large part of the msm and indeed the general public had to be seen to be believed.

“Democracy” becomes meaningless once the public (or much of it) is half-crazed, or unable to think for itself, once the mainstream media are all trumpeting one false message, once an incompetent or malicious government passes spurious “laws” and lays down legally ineffective —but practically enforced— “rules”, “guidance” and so on (conflated with and confused with actual law); and once the police start to enforce not law but the said government “rules”, “guidance” etc as if they were law(s).

Indeed, in 2020 the police themselves started to make up the law as they went along (something we also see them doing relating to so-called “hate crimes” and “non-hate crime incidents” etc). This is all connected to the influence of Common Purpose etc.

Police chiefs infected, not with “Covid-19” but with Common Purpose and political correctness, started to send drones out to blast elderly couples walking peacefully on the moors with “go home” messages, police in Derbyshire also poisoned a lake so that it would not attract visitors, and police in other provincial areas started to inspect people’s shopping to see whether the purchases were (in their Plod opinion) “reasonable” or “necessary”!

A few voices of weight spoke up against these abuses: Lord Sumption, the former Law Lord, for one. The reaction? Most msm outlets cold-shouldered Sumption, and some started to imply that he was really just a bit of a crank; while on social media, the hysterical Twitter obsessives (often Jewish) were in full flow, calling him mad etc (as they usually do when they find a target for their ingrained hate. I myself have suffered from the Jew-Zionist hate.

All very true, yet on Twitter, during the EU Referendum campaign, the Twitter-twits (always unrepresentative) were whining about how, for example, their daughters would be unable to take up that unpaid internship “job” at a Milan fashion house, or how their sons would now never be able to work in cutting-edge IT in Berlin or Amsterdam (and about how Emily and Olivia, and Sebastian and Barnaby were so terribly upset…boo-hoo— cue Windsor Davies in It Ain’t Half Hot, Mum“).

…and that is without even considering the flood of Roma-gypsy thieves and parasites that have swamped the UK for the past few decades, mostly from Eastern and Central Europe.

Actually, writing about Windsor Davies reminded me once again of the society of censorship we are now in: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_Ain%27t_Half_Hot_Mum#Reception.

[Blues and Royals ride in a London under snow]

Watch the skies!

On a wet road in West Yorkshire, early in the morning of November 28, a policeman, coming to the end of his night shift, received a report from Todmorden

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10354033/When-PC-Alan-Godfrey-close-encounter-branded-crazy-fallout-cost-job.html

As a matter of fact, I myself once saw a UFO, though I do not make any claim as to what it was beyond that. It was on New Year’s Eve, if I recall aright. I was staying for a few days in Welling, Kent, part of the South East London sprawl. 1978 or 1979.

I was walking, not long before nightfall, with a young lady, in what was basically suburbia. Out of the corner of my eye I caught sight of something and, looking, saw a bright silver sphere travelling very fast across the cloudless sky, seemingly high up. By the time I had said “look at that!“, it had vanished below the horizon. My companion did not see it.

The next morning, local radio (I think it was called Radio Medway…not sure now) was reporting that hundreds of people had called in with news of having seen the object. [note: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_Radio_Kent].

That’s it. No national msm interest, and I still have no idea what I saw, but it was certainly not a plane, weather balloon, or atmospheric condition (to list a few of the usual suggestions). A satellite? I have no idea .

The only other UFO connection I have had was secondhand, told to me by someone who had a far more striking experience.

The lady in question was working (as usual) at night in a security control room at Heathrow Airport. There were windows along one wall. She was alone, and it was the middle of the night. She saw a craft described as not unalike the one shown in the Daily Mail impression above.

It hovered outside her building for several minutes (by her recollection), lights glowing and flashing. It then took off from its hovering state, and disappeared. The witness said that she had been terrified. She said that the UFO was “massive“. No pictures (this was in 1993) because few people then carried telephones with cameras. I had a mobile then, a very heavy Motorola flip phone, but it had no camera (in fact most people did not even have mobile telephones in 1993).

Obviously, a normal aircraft would have been seen by others (of course the UFO may have been seen, but there had been no msm reports), and also would have been detected by the Heathrow air traffic control and/or security or police.

What then was it? I have no idea but alien life is implied, assuming that the account was credible (the lady was truthful, and security-vetted as well, for what that might be worth).

One msm outlet a couple of years ago was suggesting Aman (Israeli military intelligence) rather than MOSSAD (the others mentioned nothing), but who knows? No real difference in the long run.

Still think that “lockdowns”, “furlough payments”, public “support” monies thrown at hotels and pubs, and other such nonsense (and paying for migrant-invaders) all come somehow free-of-charge to the British people? Think again…

Very true. Cleese once lived opposite a lady I knew in the Bayswater part of London. That lady knew everything about the people in her street, it seemed. Cleese later moved (1980s) to Malibu, near Los Angeles, and I believe he is still there.

[update, same day: I am told now that Cleese may have decamped from Malibu and be living on the island of Nevis, Eastern Caribbean].

Cleese’s old Monty Python people, such as Michael Palin, can be smugly “liberal”, living as they do in millionaire comfort in places such as Hampstead, but it’s all so fake.

A Jewish careerist called Mark Damazer got rid of the Radio 4 UK theme in 2006, supposedly because he wanted to put a “pacy news briefing” in its place. I myself suspect that the theme was just too traditionally British for him…

Damazer was also responsible for inflicting the often painfully-ignorant (and suspiciously Americanophile) Justin Webb on the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme audience: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Damazer; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justin_Webb.

Quite right. That Maguire idiot is a typical System-Labour drone. No ideas about how to improve society, no proper analysis of current events, just kneejerk tribal Labourism and politically-correct infantilism, while coining as much money as possible from scribbling and being a TV talking head. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Maguire_(journalist). Oh, and of course he tends to play the “gritty and disillusioned Northerner” on Sky News newspaper reviews etc, while actually living rather comfortably in affluent Richmond, South West London (when not at his holiday home) with his (privately-educated) journalist/novelist wife: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_Burstall.

The “gutless, dishonest politicians” (“Conservatives”, in power since 2010) to whom Farage himself gave, in 2019, a large Commons majority (by shooting his own Brexit Party supporters and candidates in the head at the General Election).

Labour

I return again to the question of the prospects of the Labour Party now that its leadership is totally controlled (once more) by the Jew-Zionist element.

The most recent opinion polling:

Image

I recently examined the North Shropshire by-election in this regard, inter alia. This is what I wrote on the blog:

Since North Shropshire was re-dedicated in 1983, and until the by-election, Labour has failed to come in second only four times, and only once (2010) since 1992.

It is all very well to talk about tactical voting, or Labour supporters “lending their votes” to the LibDem in order to beat the Con candidate. Yes; no argument on that, but is that the whole story? The 9.7% scored in the by-election was the lowest Labour vote ever in North Shropshire. Even in 1983, at the height of Thatcherism, and when Labour suffered its crushing national defeat under Michael Foot [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_United_Kingdom_general_election], it still scored 14.7% (third place) in North Shropshire.

The conclusion must be that, while many formerly Labour votes went tactically (or otherwise) to the LibDem, many Labour voters just voted with their feet, if such be the bon mot, and stayed home. Labour scored 22.1% in 2019, and 31.1% in 2017 (both under Corbyn) in the constituency.

If this by-election result is bad for Boris-idiot, it is arguably at least as great a blow for Labour’s Jewish-lobby leadership under Keir Starmer. The problem is not just the “Israel first” aspect of Labour’s present leadership, but also the way in which the supposed “Opposition” keeps propping up “Boris” over various matters, such as the Online Harms Bill and, of more immediate political importance, the Covid/Omicron “panicdemic” “rules” and “laws”.

No-one really can have expected Labour to win the by-election, but to fall below 10% is a straw in the wind that (in my view) is significant.” See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/12/17/diary-blog-17-december-2021-including-analysis-of-the-north-shropshire-by-election-result/.

Starmer-Labour may be doing well in the opinion polls now (is that a surprise, looking at the Boris-idiot disaster?) but we all know how volatile polls can be, and how inaccurate, especially a year or two before any general election.

It may well be that, were “Boris” to be dumped, the Conservative Party might recover ground, despite its lack of credible leadership candidates.

Labour’s basic problem remains, as seen in the graphic below, showing voter migration from the 2017 General Election to the 2019 election:

Labour’s problem is not how popular the Conservatives are (they are not, and were not even in 2019), but in how unpopular Labour is, resulting not so much in voters moving to the Conservatives, but in former Labour voters either voting for minor protest parties, or voting tactically for LibDems but, more than either of those options, simply not bothering to vote.

Look at North Shropshire: former Labour voters either voted tactically for the LibDems, or stayed home and/or did not vote for Labour anyway.

A far less significant, but still interesting, election, a local one, has just happened not far from where I myself live:

Local elections, with their small electorate, smaller turnout, and often huge swings based on local factors, are hard to forecast at times, as can be seen from the Britain Elects pre-poll analysis: https://www.britainelects.com/2021/12/23/previewing-the-last-council-by-election-of-the-year-23-dec-2021/. Still, look at the result.

The Conservative Party vote was previously around 72%, but now has fallen to 18.5%, and a poor third place. Look at Labour’s result, too; a fall from nearly 28% to 4.2%, and (as usual) last place.

A local by-election result of that sort is, at best, a small straw in the wind, but does indicate the disdain in which both main parties are held by the voting public. It looks as if the former Conservative voters mostly voted for the Independent (a local farmer and former Conservative Party county councillor), while the former Labour vote migrated to the Green Party (which was not in the last election). As for the LibDems, they seem to have been unable to find a candidate at all.

It is a matter of speculation to what extent such a local election is affected by national political factors, but I do not think that those national factors can be entirely discounted.

Labour may be favoured in recent national opinion polling, but I am sceptical as to whether it really can pull a rabbit out of the hat and achieve a Commons majority in 2022, 2023, or 2024.

North Shropshire results for the Labour Party were 31.1% in 2017, 22.1% in 2019, and 9.7% in 2021: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Shropshire_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s.

What about that other celebrated 2021 by-election, at Chesham and Amersham? Yes, the LibDems took the formerly considered safe Conservative seat, as at North Shropshire; the Labour results for the constituency, though, are again very striking: in 2017, 20.6%; in 2019, 12.9%, then a collapse in 2021 to only 1.6%: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chesham_and_Amersham_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s.

Same direction of travel— a collapse in the Labour vote. True, not directly significant, in that neither seat has ever been won by Labour. However, similar decline elsewhere, in seats where Labour has succeeded in the past, could all but finish Labour as a party of government.

Of course, those who control the System do not care which of the two main System parties wins, because both parties are part of the System.

As always, I believe that a credible social-national movement —and party— could rise up, to all but annihilate the System parties; but, as always, I have to note that no such party presently exists.

A good but arguable point.

Ellwood is a sinister character.

Twin

Watched the start of Norwegian crime/drama series, Twin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin_(TV_series)]. Slightly underwhelming; probably not quite my sort of crime drama, and the bleak Norwegian Atlantic winter (I presume) scenery I find depressing.

The oddest aspect of that series is that here we are in some remote part of Norway, and one of the detectives from the local town is an African! I know that Norway, like much of Europe, has seen a massive influx (invasion), but surely this is just grotesque? In fact, there were two more non-Europeans, one an (?) Indian woman, and also a small child whose supposed parents were both Norwegians. Why? How? No explanation offered.

Seems that the Coudenhove-Kalergi propaganda is not confined to UK TV shows…

“Boris”-idiot

Saw this by Guardian writer John Crace. Not sure of the date, but it is very good as a summary, obvious though it is:

 “…Boris Johnson. If he has a talent, it’s a talent for lying. And while it may have cost him countless relationships and friendships, it has taken him all the way to Downing Street. Put simply, he has become prime minister by lying better than all the other contenders for the job. But now he has run out of road and the lies have caught up with him. He’s the cartoon villain hopelessly spinning his legs before plunging into the abyss. Brexit has failed to deliver any of its promised rewards, and inflation, at more than 5%, is far higher than wage growth. No matter how Boris tries to spin it, people are feeling more broke by the week.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Crace_(writer)#Views]

National Service

Many of the Twitter-twits highly agitato because some Daily Telegraph scribbler has floated the idea of reintroducing “National Service” (I believe that the “Royal Cuck” has mentioned it in the past).

My view? First of all, that National Service, which ran, in the usual meaning, from 1948 to 1960 (the last such conscripts were demobilized in 1963) was not a hugely effective or cost-effective thing from the point of view of the Army (which used the bulk of the manpower). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conscription_in_the_United_Kingdom#After_1945

These days, it is considered necessary to train soldiers for six months or more before they are much use in action. Thus, to train millions of young men, only to release them from their obligation a year or 18 months later, is very wasteful.

Secondly, the pushback from those unwillingly recruited, then demobbed, may have been one fact fuelling the decadence of the 1960s.

Thirdly, Britain, even in the 1950s, had both an empire, albeit one being dismantled, and an enemy (the Warsaw Pact bloc, or SovBloc) which also had huge numbers of men under arms and was thought to pose a credible invasion threat to all of Western Europe.

You cannot compare the 1950s to today. It follows that, as things stand, I should not like to see National Service reintroduced. Actually, I very nearly had to do the Australian equivalent, having lived there from 1967, aged 10, to late 1969, aged 13. The SEATO Treaty then in force meant that Australian (and New Zealand) forces were fighting in Vietnam on the American side. At age 18, from late 1974, I would have been subject, possibly, to conscription, but as things turned out, my family returned to the UK before the end of 1969, and in any case Australian forces in Vietnam were slowly reduced from 1970; the last few “advisers” left Vietnam in 1974: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_history_of_Australia_during_the_Vietnam_War.

It makes me laugh, though, to see the Twitter-twits attacking Britain in the 1950s. They all seem to have three points, which might be summarized as “blacks were badly treated”, “gays were badly treated”, and “food was terrible” (because of rationing, in part).

In fact, while gay activities were unlawful, it seems that the laws were not heavy-handedly enforced; some areas (eg Soho, in London) were notorious for such activity.

As to blacks, well despite what present-day msm propaganda (eg in dramas such as Grantchester etc) portrays, there were almost no blacks (or browns) in England then, with the exception of a few ports and a few parts of London. The Empire Windrush had scarcely disembarked its passengers, and they had only just started to breed.

I myself can only remember seeing one black person in the UK before 1969, and that was an NHS consultant (ENT) at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, circa 1962.

Food rationing (a result of the terrible and completely unnecessary war against the German Reich from 1939-1945), lasted, in part, until 1954, true (and in most respects was harsher in the few years after the end of that war, because Britain was badly-damaged economically), but rapidly ceased to be part of everyday life during the 1950s. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationing_in_the_United_Kingdom; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationing_in_the_United_Kingdom#Timeline.

Other aspects of life in the 1950s compare badly to life today: the lack of central heating in most houses would be one such. On the other hand, the UK population was about 55 million, compared to maybe 70 million today. The countryside was uncrowded and had hugely more wildlife (overall) than now, there was incomparably less crime (especially violent crime) in the UK, society was more stable, less volatile, and children could generally wander safely around the countryside (as I did, though a few years later, in the early/mid 1960s, both on foot and bicycle, the number of cars being only a fraction of the number filling the roads of England today). There were very few non-Europeans around.

There is another point: society needs public landmarks, buildings (and monuments); landmarks which are for specifically public purposes: local government, courts, libraries, religious buildings, museums. This is of importance in maintaining the actual structure of society, and the buildings and other constructions should be grand, or even grandiose.

I have blogged about her elsewhere. Poses as a knowledgeable medical doctor; seems that she trained as a doctor, and qualified, but if she ever worked as one, it was not for long (her Twitter profile has now been changed, I think, to reflect that). Seems to want to get into politics, and operates a supposedly pro-NHS pressure group, selling useless cloth facemasks: https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/officers/oo7DBvRUxACeoj5M_VGXeKOtS_Y/appointments; https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/11695500/filing-history.

Makes her little child wear a facemask even when in a park or other open space. Seems mentally unstable.

More information: looks as if the lady doctor in question has in fact never actually practised medicine, nor does she even hold a licence to practise, yet Sky News has her on as a “doctor” who knows all about “Covid” etc!…Sky News should not be publicizing this crank: see https://www.everydoctor.org.uk/team.

Regular readers of the blog will know how sceptical I am about doctors who become (actual or wannabee) politicians (or, indeed, who become barristers, as have a few I have encountered in the past).

Vienna Blood

Saw another episode of the period crime drama (set c.1900), Vienna Blood. As before, quite good, not boring, but once again we had a Chinese woman working at Vienna Police HQ, and in this episode also saw a half-caste person, or maybe North African, as an “Austrian” monk in a monastery! I suppose not completely impossible but, as with the Chinese woman at police HQ, unlikely. Part of the propaganda (((agenda))) of the Coudenhove-Kalergi conspiracy.

Christmas University Challenge

Saw a Christmas University Challenge featuring well-known alumni from Birkbeck and from Portsmouth, one of whom was the prolific tweeter and barrister, Jo Maugham, perhaps best known to the general public for having battered a fox to death.

Actually both teams were pretty poor, and my wife and I scored far more than both of them put together.

Good news on whaling

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/dec/26/japans-whaling-town-struggles-to-keep-400-years-of-tradition-alive

When I had a Twitter account (a pack of Jews had me expelled in 2018), I frequently tweeted against Japanese whaling (and against that carried out by other countries engaged in commercial whaling, notably Norway and Iceland; the Soviet Union ceased its semi-secret whaling in 1973).

I supported Sea Shepherd [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_Shepherd_Conservation_Society_operations#Japanese_whaling_(2003%E2%80%932017)] and its firm confrontation strategy. However, I always recognized that the key to stopping Japanese whaling (the Scandinavian operations are tiny by comparison) lay in Japan itself.

As the Guardian report indicates, part of the problem lay in the Japanese psychology, in resenting being told what to do or not do by the non-Japanese world. Japan needed an honourable way to stop whaling, an exit strategy enabling Japan to stop whaling, and to stop subsidizing whaling, without losing face. This is what has happened.

Japan continues to whale, but only within the waters of Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone (under the Law of the Sea), and in reality is slowly winding down whaling (along with the subsidies for it). The whales caught now are not the most endangered (such as the Blue Whale). Not that that excuses the activity, but it seems that, finally, Japanese whaling is on the way out.

France 24 TV report about arrests arising from investigations into Jew and/or Israeli corruption in New Jersey (mainly Hudson County, the bit of New Jersey alongside the Hudson River opposite Manhattan).

Not only fraud and money laundering but also the sale of human organs and blood to Israel and/or to Jew and Israeli organizations in Switzerland and elsewhere.

Had this not been reported on a mainstream TV station (France 24), it would no doubt be vilified by Jewish orgs and mouthpieces as an “anti-Semitic trope” or something.

You really couldn’t make it up! Crazed “Covid” zealot so aggressively determined to exercise her —non-existent— power over a non-mask-wearing passenger, while she herself is not using her mask, shouting, screaming in people’s faces, and even spitting!

That video is an extreme example of the pathology now widespread in the USA, and even UK and elsewhere in Europe. This is what the facemask nonsense is really all about— forcing people to comply. It has little or nothing to do with public health. In Spain, they apparently even have to wear facemasks outside, by law!

My answer?

The nearly two years of “panicdemic” fear propaganda and general nonsense has become ingrained in many. They now not only comply with even completely arbitrary diktats (such as the ludicrous “Rule of 6”), and moreover at the snap of the fingers from complete idiots such as “Boris” Johnson, but get very very angry when they see others refusing to jump through the “mandated” hoops.

In an irreligious age, people seek out things in which to believe, and for causes to follow, as well as for (supposed) “virtues” to display or signal.

The 20th century showed that political causes such as old-style socialism had feet of clay, and religions such as Roman Catholicism and the simplistic “evangelical” alternatives, as well as sub-religions such as cults, became mostly discredited, so we are here now in the 21st century with many floundering people desperately seeking for a cause to which to adhere.

For some, in the UK of the 1980s and 1990s, it was anti-apartheid, but the new “rainbow nation” South Africa has largely failed (in every way) since then, and there are no white people in the SA government to blame now, so the virtue-signallers have abandoned the South Africans of all races to their fate and latched onto other causes: anti-Brexit was or is one such, as was and is “climate change”, as in the worship of the Swedish autistic, little Greta Nut; likewise, the Extinction Rebellion and Insulate Britain idea that destruction of the UK as an advanced industrial economy will somehow “save the planet”.

Now such people (often the very same people) have latched onto “Covid” as their cause. The roots of it lie in their personal and group psychology and/or pathology rather than anything objective.

Some thoughts from 5 years ago, revisited

I take the opportunity to resurrect from my blog archives the following post from late 2016: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2016/12/03/the-society-of-measure/.

I have made just criticism in the past few years of, inter alia, Aaron Bastani and Ash Sarkar, and their idea called “Fully Automated Luxury Communism” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fully_Automated_Luxury_Communism], but (despite not having read the book), I apprehend that one of its basic premises is that the benefits of modern technology and productive techniques have been arrogated by a tiny minority of finance-capitalists. If my understanding of the book is correct in that regard, then I certainly agree with that view; indeed, it can hardly be denied.

Books such as The Spirit Level [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spirit_Level_(book)] have shown how inequality in the “Western” world has grown since the 1950s and particularly in recent decades. Numerous studies have shown how the remuneration and wealth (capital) of corporate owners and the highest strata of executives has become grotesque.

In the 1950s, in the USA the typical disparity between the pay of highest-paid and lowest-paid in a company was about 15:1. Now it is hundreds to one and, in not a few cases, thousands to one. That is without even getting into share options, capital gains etc

The same is true of the UK. There are many large companies where the top executives are getting a million or more a year (many millions in some cases) in salary alone, while the bottom-level employees are on something like £15,000. A ratio of at least 70:1, and in many cases hundreds to one.

It is not a question, for me, of inequality alone (some inequality is inevitable and indeed good) but of inequality so great and so unfair that it amounts to inequity.

We see how some of the wealthiest capitalists on Earth (Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Elon Musk etc) vie with each other to build their own space rockets, not to do anything truly worthwhile with them but to take what amount to joy-rides into space, accompanied by other hugely-wealthy individuals. Meanwhile, their own employees live on pennies, in many cases unable to pay their rent, feed their families properly, or achieve even a modestly-comfortable standard of living.

The fruits of scientific and technological innovation must be shared more equitably.

It is entirely misplaced and wrongheaded “compassion” to invite into the UK (or to tolerate an unwanted invasion by) those who, most of them, despise British people and/or hate us, and who will be, at best, a heavy millstone round the British neck, forever.

Justin Welby will have to suffer no detriment by tolerating the migration invasion. No, that burden will be borne by the British poor, mostly.

I was going to keep the blog short today, and concentrated on purely Christmas topics (and one does after all have other things to do on Christmas Day), but the world has impinged on my retreat…

A few thoughts around Christmas

Naturally, Christmas, as we know it in the UK and/or “Anglosphere”, is largely what people today often call “a construct” or “social construct”. You see in magazines or online quite a lot of historical detail about that.

A few examples: St. Nicholas was someone from what is now part of Turkey, not the North Pole: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinterklaas.

In the UK, perhaps especially England, we have a fairly closely-defined idea of what Christmas should be: the Christmas tree, the angel or star atop the tree, carols, Santa Claus in his red suit, sitting in a sleigh in the sky, itself pulled by flying reindeer.

As many will know, the Christmas tree tradition, in England, dates back only to 1834, when one was installed at Windsor Castle; the tradition dates back longer in Germany, to the late Middle Ages.

As for the fairy atop the tree, that may be connected with the late Roman cult of Mithras, though that seems to me to be contrived, in view of the fact that the Christmas tree tradition itself is of recent historical origin. I would not say, though, that I am really qualified to pronounce on that aspect.

As to red-suited Santa with his sled or sleigh, reindeer etc, that is a conflation of ancient traditions, 19thC traditions, and “traditions” which come from as recent a source as 1930s American ads for Coca-Cola: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Claus.

In Russia, the 19thC saw “Grandfather Frost” emerge, a tradition at least half-heartedly kept up in 20thC Soviet times as an alternative to the usually disapproved-of and sometimes suppressed Russian Orthodox Christmas religious holiday (which takes place a couple of weeks after the Western one by reason of the fact that the Russian Orthodox church still uses the Julian Calendar).

I believe that some Christian occultists aver that the “Santa in a sleigh” picture has an underlying reality in that the Cosmic Christ travels spiritually around the world for the “12 days of Christmas”, assessing the overall spiritual condition of the world. Perhaps.

My own view is that it does not really matter that our 20thC/21stC idea of Christmas would seem slightly odd to Victorian England, and downright alien to the English of Tudor times. It is our mental picture, our idea of what is sacred, our idea of what is worthwhile. It encapsulates what has gone before, and is of social and personal value.

Whatever the origins of Christmas as we know it, and however “inauthentic” some may claim it to be, the fact remains that we regard it as sort-of-sacred, even if in a sense it is not, and that includes the “Father Christmas” or “Santa Claus” figure in his red robes, even if he does only date back, in that form, to 1930s Disney and Coca-Cola. We do not like it being changed for obviously socio-political reasons.

Ghastly

Saw a few minutes on TV of some ghastly Christmas thing in Westminster Abbey yesterday. Some weird fellow looking like a Scottish down and out strumming on a guitar and, er, singing, while queen-to-be Kate accompanied on a piano. Not quite sure what the whole thing was, because I only saw a minute or two of it.

The Mezzotint

Saw a BBC adaptation of the M.R. James story, The Mezzotint. My expectations were not, if truth be told, high, but in fact this was an excellent short film. The original story was written in 1904, but the adaptation was, seemingly, set in the 1920s (judging by the props, clothes, and some music heard).

Even the fact that, typically for today, they shoehorned a non-European into the story (an anglicized Indian, or Anglo-Indian), did not jar, the way it was done. Pretty good.

I can recommend highly the 1995 documentary below, finely narrated by the late Bill Wallis [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Wallis]:

Quite right. In my several interactions with the UK police since I became more active politically online —in the past decade— I have come to realize, rather to my surprise, that the British police (often all-too-easily misled by the Jew-Zionist element) quite often have no idea, or proper idea, of the laws of this country, or of the liberties that still exist under those laws. As for knowledge of history, geopolitics, race and culture generally, forget it!

…and almost all the “civil rights” types, the (often Jew) “human rights” lawyers, the usual suspects of those and other sorts, as well as those working on TV, radio, or in the (again, supposed) “free Press” etc, backed the police state measures! Apart from those (such as me) not, or only peripherally, in the public eye, almost all of the self-proclaimed or supposed defenders of rights, “democracy”, decency, “freedom” etc went the same way, and became, almost overnight, sycophants of the police state. Or were they in reality always puppets of the System?

There have been a few well-known public figures or personalities who, in the past nearly 2 years of “Covid” socio-political madness and repression, have stood up for both liberty and the proper rule of law (law, not mere laws, in a “society under law” rather than a society merely “with laws”; even North Korea and Stalin’s regime have or had laws…).

Lord Sumption has been one [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Sumption,_Lord_Sumption]; the controversialist journalist and columnist Peter Hitchens another [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Hitchens; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/].

There have been some others, less erudite but perhaps more able to engage the mass audience; people such as, recently, Maajid Nawaz [

The monks who hammered a wooden stake into the mouth of the philosopher Giordano Bruno (in 1600, following long investigation, incarceration, and trial by the Inquisition), did so apparently believing that they were doing something good (because their cruel “measures” were done in order to prevent Bruno from further blaspheming and so further imperilling his soul). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giordano_Bruno; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giordano_Bruno#Imprisonment,_trial_and_execution,_1593%E2%80%931600. (Bruno was then hung naked upside down and burned at the stake).

People often do very wicked and/or cruel things either in the belief that they are not wicked, or because the measures taken are believed to be necessary in order to support a greater good, or to protect society, or an institution of society.

The execution of Giordano Bruno was 500+ years ago, but (to give only a few examples of the syndrome), electric shock therapy is still practised widely today; abuse of psychiatry for reasons of socio-political control did not stop with the Soviet Union and the Serbsky Institute [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbsky_Center] (Google, eg “Tavistock Institute” and “Tavistock Clinic”); and torture for allegedly “good” reasons has been practised even within the past couple of decades by the USA and other supposedly advanced states, as well as by the obvious examples such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and other Arab and/or Muslim states, North Korea etc.

“Prison Planet” Watson

I do not rate very highly, from the ideological or socio-political point of view, vlogger Paul Joseph Watson (for one thing, he never says anything critical of the Jew-Zionist cabals, or Israel, and never defends those under attack by those elements for dissidence, people such as Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, Ian Millard…etc), but credit where due…

Ukraine, as a fake “state” in the past few decades, is basically now, in terms of its set-up since 2014 especially, a Jewish-Zionist capture.

For Britain, as part of NATO, to get into conflict with Russia about Eastern Ukraine, the eastern part of a territory inextricably linked to Russia for over 1,100 years, is absurd, and might lead to terrible consequences in the UK, should actual (strategic/continental) war result from all of this.

I would say “get Boris out!“, but most of those tweeting that want Jewish-lobby puppet and false alternative Keir Starmer in Downing Street, together with Yvette Cooper, Rachel Reeves, and the rest. Nein danke!

Music

From the golden days of Hollywood…

They may not have had the technical resources of today but, at their best, they could really make films back then.

I think that I may have blogged en passant in the past about how I saw Bette Davis a few years before her death, when she was on the (I think) South Bank Show with Andrei Tarkovsky and maybe someone else as well; filmed at the South Bank Centre in London. That was about 4 years before her death. Sometime in the mid-1980s. In fact, despite her age, she outlived Tarkovsky, who died only a year or so later (1986), aged only 54. Tarkovsky had been only about 5 or 6 years old in 1938 when Jezebel was released.

The public were kept back (mostly not allowed into the building at all). Even inside, there was tight control. I was there just to meet someone else but I was introduced by a third party to the (British) chief of Bette Davis’s security (there was a whole expert team guarding her) and he said that I could stand there next to him as she came through with her “lady in waiting” and a couple of other people. An almost fossilized —and rather imperial— figure, aware of her status, rather like the last Queen of Naples.

It was amazing to see how various unwanted people, mainly autograph-hunters, kept trying to get to her, only to be expertly and diplomatically (though firmly) blocked by the guard team. One fellow even swung down (literally) from an external concrete stairway as a small side door was opened! He too was stopped, autograph book and pen in hand, and still tried to persuade the dinner-jacketed guard to let him through! All the while, the guard chief and I stood about 12 feet away, and Bette Davis + small entourage closer yet. Interesting to see. The chief of security remarked to me, as she passed by, something like “there goes a living legend“. A bit of a cliche, of course, but true.

Arguably typical of many of the London msm; hugely well-paid (overpaid), hugely politically-correct. He may have a few redeeming features. At least he reported from Gaza during one of the Israeli bloodbaths.

I myself saw the Channel 4 newsroom at the ITN centre (it moved to a different address later) a couple of times, but that was in late 1984, about 6 years before Jon Snow became news anchor. When I was there (as a mere visitor, nothing to do with any particular story), the anchorman was Peter Sissons, now deceased [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Sissons].

I recall how different Sissons looked, compared to his on-screen persona, when seated at his desk preparing for the broadcast (I think he was on air at 1900 hrs, about 20 mins after I first saw him). Rather, if not very, fat in body, and rather disagreeable-looking, though the latter may have been simply Sissons concentrating hard on his upcoming appearance. I had no reason to speak to him, and did not.

Interesting to see a place like that. There was a feeling (not quite corresponding to reality, perhaps) of being at the hub of world events. Apart from the feeling of suppressed urgency just before the news was broadcast (the actual studio was somewhere else nearby), there was one girl, a few yards away, on the telephone to the Defence Minister of Nicaragua, another calling some VIP in Washington and, where I was sitting on my first visit, a TV with a very clear feed from the Soviet evening news from Moscow (today, that would be nothing, and a private person can probably get that via satellite TV, but back then it was novel to see).

I was just looking at Snow’s underwhelming academic and pre-Channel 4 background: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Snow_(journalist).

Incredibly, Snow was paid, at one time, over £1.25M a year: https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/life/1221226/Jon-Snow-channel-4-net-worth; since then a slightly more modest £1M a year….

What on Earth justifies that kind of pay? I see that Peter Sissons had, apart from his home in Kent, a holiday home on Barbados, according to Wikipedia. There is a general problem with ludicrously high pay (for sometimes rather mediocre people —not referring to Sissons or even Snow specifically—) in the UK msm.

I still, even now, after 2-3 years of misgovernment, see msm stories saying things such as “has Boris abandoned his libertarian principles?” as if he actually had principles and/or real ideas —“libertarian” or otherwise— to start with.

Johnson is (or was, before it became obvious even to most of “the moronic masses” that he is utterly unfit for any public office) the ideal NWO/ZOG figurehead: free of any deeply-held beliefs, faith, ideas or principles, amoral, completely compromised in his private life, a deracinated part-Jew/part-Levantine, rootless (not only ethnically-mixed but also born in New York, brought up in USA and Belgium until at Eton, an United States passport-holder until a few years ago), and hungry for money too. The ideal controlled and controllable puppet.

News about “hate crime” nonsense

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10331993/EXCLUSIVE-Campaigners-call-120-000-hate-incidents-deleted.html

Campaigners have called for 120,000 ‘hate incidents’ to be deleted from police records after a court found that College of Policing guidance which saw tweets about transgender issues recorded as a ‘hate incident’ had a ‘chilling effect’ on freedom of expression. 

Yesterday former policeman Harry Miller accused the College of Policing of operating as ‘Stasi by stealth’ after he won a landmark Court of Appeal challenge against police guidance on ‘hate incidents’.

“‘Non-crime hate incidents’ were introduced in 2014 following recommendations by the independent Macpherson Inquiry into the murder of Stephen Lawrence. They are ‘any non-crime incident which is perceived, by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by a hostility or prejudice’, according to College of Policing guidance. Reports of ‘non-crime hate incidents’ can show up in criminal record checks for six years, yet there are no grounds to appeal against them.

And free speech campaigner Emma Webb added: ‘The nation owes its thanks to Harry Miller for his steely determination and courage.

Given this landmark ruling, which confirms ”non-crime hate incidents” represent an unlawful interference with freedom of expression and their recording on a police database is likely to have a ”chilling effect” on public debate, it is only right that all ”non-crime hate incidents” should be scratched from police records.’” [Daily Mail]

Having said that, Ferrari certainly showed up the ignorance of Diane Abbott, who might have become Home Secretary in 2017 had Labour won the General Election:

I notice, looking at readers’ letters to newspapers, that many are waking up to the realization that this whole virus situation has been weaponized in order to introduce a “biosecurity” police state worldwide, in which people will be microchipped (etc) and tracked 24/7.

For me, it is noteworthy how other, quite different, postures align with the pro-facemask nonsense, pro-lockdown, pro-“vaccine” position. Most of the individuals supporting the aforesaid also take a pro-EU and anti-Brexit position. Most also support mass immigration into the UK; and so on. Most of those individuals are very ready to give up the freedoms that matter for the false freedoms that do not.

More news about the emergence of the transnational biosecurity police state

The planned transnational fake-“biosecurity” police state dictatorship of dystopia is now emerging every day more into the light:

Implants are very versatile technology that can be used for many different things, and right now it is very convenient to have COVID passport always accessible on your implant…

Many venues, restaurants, bars, concert halls and museums, across the US are requiring visitors present their vaccination status in order to enter the building.
