On this day a year ago
Once again, amazing to see how many tweets have been censored and/or tweeters “cancelled” over the past year. Many blank spaces, like destroyed buildings in a city under siege (just a topical allusion…).
Why was the bastard even in the UK? Don’t tell me that he was another “refugee”…
The report caught my eye partly because it is an area I used to know well. As a former resident of Little Venice, I was quite often in Edgware Road, and occasionally in Praed Street (Paddington) as well. I knew a couple of people who worked around there, and my dentist in the early 1990s was in the next main street (corner of Edgware Road and Sussex Gardens). In other words, I myself could have been one of the unfortunate victims, were I still living in that part of London.
The UK needs what Russians call a chistka (“clean-up” or purge), and nowhere is that more necessary than in London.
More crime: Hanratty and the A6 Murder
I happened to see a report about Valerie Storie, the woman raped and shot (and paralyzed) in the 1960s by the murderer, Hanratty: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Hanratty.
The “A6 Murder” was one of the most notorious crimes in an era of such. After Hanratty was executed, many of the famous joined in a noisy campaign to prove Hanratty innocent. Among those were the ludicrous John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and the well-meaning but often just silly Ludovic Kennedy [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludovic_Kennedy].
I recall reading a couple of books about the A6 Murder, including Who Killed Hanratty?, written by (again, rather silly) journalist, Paul Foot [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Foot_(journalist)].
I have also seen some of the documentaries made about the crime, such as that in the interesting TV series (a favourite of mine), Great Crimes and Trials [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Crimes_and_Trials]. I never saw the series when it was on BBC TV (I had no television set in the 1993-1996 period) but later bought all the videos I could find.
Interestingly enough, one book I once read, maybe by Ludovic Kennedy (not sure now) had an incident whereby, before Hanratty had been named as wanted for questioning, a lady met Hanratty casually (I think in a shop in London) and had an immediate instinct that here was the A6 murderer. Absurd from a logical point of view, yet she was right. What are the odds?
This is the local newspaper report I have just now been reading: https://www.bedfordshirelive.co.uk/news/bedfordshire-news/a6-murderer-victims-silence-finally-5856877.
Valerie Storie herself died in 2016, still paralyzed, in the house in which she had been born.
Do I have unjustified anger, or totally justified rage against the deliberate trashing of everything decent in this country? Answers on a postcard…
Australia was once 99% a European-race “lucky country”, but now is a dystopian, mixed-race, politically-correct, and half-crazed, geographic area, not really a nation at all, and which will probably eventually become a kind of massive Philippines-type mess, or a Chinese semi-colony..
Listen to what the woman in that clip has to say.

“Horrifying video shows Ukrainian soldiers shooting captured Russian troops with their hands tied behind their backs amid accusations of similar Russian atrocities” [Daily Mail]
Verified by the New York Times, no less.
What are the British and American virtue-signallers and “me too” idiots going to say now, now that the soldiers of their beloved Zelensky Jew-Zionist regime are proven to have committed atrocities as bad as those alleged to have been committed by Russian troops?
Russia can defeat the forces of the Kiev regime, but it depends on how much death, damage and hurt Putin is willing to inflict.
Ukraine conflict: today’s thoughts
Ukraine is not a functioning state, really. It always (since “independence” in 1991) had elements of a “failed state”— corruption, shambolic maladministration, foreign/Jewish exploitation, but now the only element of a normal state that still exists is its armed force. Almost everything else is gone.
The Russian blockade means that Ukraine ports, even the unoccupied ones such as Odessa, are not working. The war and the situation in general means that industry is not functioning, that trade is almost at a standstill in much of the country. Airports are closed down and/or damaged.
So far, railways are still functioning, but for how long?
As to the war itself, I saw a report today to the effect that the Ukrainian forces are using each day about the same amount of ammunition (of all sorts, but particularly of the items supplied by NATO and others) that they are importing each week. A shortfall in the ratio 1:6. Unsustainable. It can only be a matter of time, and not much time, before the Ukrainian forces run out of everything except small arms/ammunition.
It can be seen that the Ukrainian (Kiev-regime) authorities are advising civilians in the south-east to evacuate before an expected renewed Russian onslaught. In all the besieged cities of the east, civilians are running out of food or have run out of food. It can only be a matter of time there too, before most of those cities are taken or flattened. Once that happens, the Russians will slowly occupy all of the Ukraine east of the Dnieper. That will eventually threaten Kiev again, this time from the southeast.
The Black Sea and Sea of Azov coasts are now almost entirely Russian-occupied as far west as Mykolaiv (former Nikolayev).
Russia may well move soon in some unexpected way to regain the tactical initiative. How, exactly, is hard to predict. Possibly by calling up Russia’s vast reserves, which number in the millions. True, they would all have to be fed and equipped and transported but, given that, they could be used to garrison areas taken, while the regular forces strike at areas east of the Dnieper still resisting, or not yet assaulted.
It seems that the mayor of Dnipro (former Dnepropetrovsk) has recommended that the elderly, women, and children should evacuate from the city, which at a million inhabitants (pre-invasion) is by far the largest population concentration on the Dnieper between the southern coastal areas and Kiev, 500 miles to the northwest. It has or had the 4th-largest population of the Ukrainian cities, slightly bigger than Donetsk.
Dnipro is on both banks of the Dnieper.
So far, the Russian forces have not yet secured Donetsk completely, let alone Zaporozhye and Dnipro. As noted, even if Dnipro can be taken or surrounded/sidelined, it is still 500 miles from there to Kiev. In my view, Russia has not won anything akin to a victory unless Kiev is taken.
The only way Russia can defeat the forces of the Kiev regime (without tactical nuclear weapons) is to call up its ground reserves, then push remorselessly forward, using hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of troops, until all Ukraine east of the Dnieper is occupied.
Meanwhile, we see msm reports of mutiny in the Russian forces. If true, reminiscent of 1917…

Every. Single. Time.
The Nuland Jewess cannot even express herself in proper English (it should be “fewer“, not “less“, of course). Still, I know which tribe I would rather see much reduced in numbers, if not extinguished from the flame of existence altogether. Three guesses…
If a rich Englishman tried to become a Cabinet minister, or Prime Minister, in India, would that be possible? No; au contraire; it would be unthinkable.
