What lies under our feet?
It is good, occasionally, to elevate oneself above the matters of the day, and to consider wider questions. I was just looking at an article I wrote for the blog a couple of years ago. I think that it is worth reading, not least because it has been one of the least-read blog posts I have written since the blog started in late 2016.
Here is another blog post from 2019, this time examining aspects of the countryside: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/10/07/rewilding-and-reafforestation-of-parts-of-the-uk/.
Yet another from 2019, this time telling of how a chance encounter led to thoughts about some of the structure of society: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/03/30/someone-i-met-recently/.
On this day a year ago
Returning bison to the UK
As one would expect, a good article by Peter Hitchens on the death of free speech in the UK: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10300047/PETER-HITCHENS-Generation-puzzled-idea-right-say-things-dont-agree-with.html.
Some of the Hitchens article:
“I am – for the moment – one of the luckier ones. But I do not expect it to last for ever. I can see that, for most people, true free speech has ceased to exist.
Step outside the borders of acceptable thought in a school or a workplace and you can very quickly find yourself being denounced and in serious trouble.
On some issues, such as the transgender controversy, it is virtually impossible to say anything without attracting the attention of the Thought Police.
In workplaces, from fire stations to schools, everything must conform with ‘Equality and Diversity’. This is in fact the law of the land. Where trade unions still exist, they support the new speech codes and will not defend you. So most people wisely do not risk it.
Among millions, the idea that you can defend someone’s right to say something you disagree with is now puzzling. They have no idea why anyone would do that. For them, the debate is over, they have won, and those who oppose them are stupid and wrong.
The whole concept of tolerance has almost died in this generation, as far as I can see.” [Peter Hitchens, in the Daily Mail].
Regular or long-term readers of this blog will be aware that I have written about my own experiences in respect of the all-but disappeared freedom of expression in the UK: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.
I have also, incidentally, blogged about Hitchens himself: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/.
As Hitchens says, many have no understanding of, let alone any wish to defend, free speech or freedom of expression. The image below shows it quite well:
I might add that I have never once seen Peter Hitchens speak out to defend my free speech rights, as for example when I was wrongfully and unlawfully disbarred for having tweeted 5 tweets, all of which were true, such as calling Michael Gove an expenses cheat, pro-Jew and pro-Israel (I did not know at the time that Gove —who is still a Cabinet minister!— was, and is still, also a cocaine abuser and a drunk).
No, not one word has Hitchens said to defend my free speech rights. It cannot be said that his failure was or is because I am merely a private citizen living in obscurity; after all, most of the national newspapers featured my disbarment (in 2016). The Daily Mail gave my “case” a whole page. I was also featured on Sky News.
Neither have Hitchens, nor Toby Young, nor the “Free Speech Union” ever supported those known to me who have suffered actual prosecution and imprisonment for exercizing free speech. People such as Alison Chabloz (who sang satirical songs about Zionists and “holocaust” fakery, and posted them online), and Jez Turner (who made a humorous speech in Whitehall, urging the removal of Jews from the UK).
Now we come to the nub of the matter. While the Durham University incident was not linked directly to the Jew-Zionist lobby, most other attacks on free speech in the UK are. In the UK, the Jewish/Zionist lobby is the greatest enemy of free speech.
There is no point complaining about the symptom without expressly identifying and understanding the (((source))) of the problem.
Finally, how ironic that the Daily Mail is “not allowing comments” by its readers on Hitchens’ articles…
[note: my definition of “free speech” or “freedom of expression” would be “unrestricted expression on matters social, political, racial, scientific, artistic, and historical”].

I shall update my general blog post about the Epstein scandal, about the half-Jew Israeli Intelligence asset Ghislaine Maxwell and, of course, about the unpleasant “royal prince”, Andrew Windsor: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/08/11/the-jew-epstein-and-prince-andrew-the-british-royal-family-has-another-scandal-maybe-its-time-to-just-get-rid-of-them/.
“She believes Ms Maxwell will be found guilty. ‘Ghislaine enabled Jeffrey to do what he did,’ she says. ‘I believe she is evil. She’s a narcissist who thinks she has done nothing wrong. To her, we were nothing. I hope justice is done…’I pray justice will be done in court,’ she says, ‘but I am a very spiritual person and I believe whatever happens, Ghislaine will burn in hell for all eternity“. [a named Epstein/Maxwell victim, speaking to the Daily Mail].
Epstein has already gone “up the chimney”. How long until “Maxwell” follows?
Kristalltag Wien— jetzt!
Does British TV still do things like this? Maybe only if they can shoehorn in some nonsense about “diversity”, or the slave trade…
