On this day a year ago
Running on empty
I saw the tweet below:
True, and that tweet, though commonplace in itself, sparked a few thoughts:
How about “imagine someone getting actually disbarred because of only five tweets, mostly on general socio-political topics, not addressed to any individual and, moreover, all true in their content“…See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.
As many of my blog readers will be aware, I quite often watch the TV quiz show, The Chase. I do well, I would even say very well, on many or indeed most topics, but fall down on pop/rock music, current “celebrities” and, to a lesser extent, sports.
I saw one Chase yesterday, but the show was from years ago. A young black woman contestant from Birmingham, who knew almost nothing on any topic. Her present activity (at time of recording)? Law student. Her goal? To become a barrister…
There is no doubt in my mind that the Bar has become a kind of dustbin now. That is particularly true of what are often regarded as the lower levels of Bar work, meaning the criminal law Bar and the family law Bar.
Like so many areas of English/British life, the Bar is really running on empty or, to put it another way, living off its reputation from earlier times.
Other areas and institutions “running on empty” in that way? The Monarchy, the armed forces, the Church of England, SIS/MI6 (and probably MI5 too), the BBC and other msm, Parliament, the electoral system, the Conservative Party, the Labour Party, universities (including, and perhaps particularly, Oxford and Cambridge, with their higher expectation), the whole system of awarding of “degrees”, the Foreign Office, the police force etc.
The outward forms are there but devoid, or almost devoid, of content.
Free speech under sustained attack
There is far less intellectual curiosity generally in 2022 as compared to, say, 1962, 1972, or even 1992. It is a societal shift; the world of the student “snowflakes” is just a part of that.
Repression of free speech comes from a number of sources, though the worst is the Jew-Zionist element. Others? The Muslim/Islamist element is one other, though relatively minor except where the speech or other expression directly impinges on the religious sensibilities of the Muslims. The “antifa” element (largely though not entirely tied-in with the Jew-Zionists) is another, as is the State itself, via its control organs (police, security orgs etc).
Beyond that, there is the almost hysterical perceived need by many, especially the young, for a sense of comfortable and unchallenging mental or intellectual security. The same impulse is behind the ever-inflating exam —including degree— awards. The “everyone gets a First” culture.
“Blacks with everything”
Arnold Wesker, the Jewish playwright, wrote a play (filmed for TV a couple of times) called Chips with Everything, but in the UK, in TV ads, we now have “blacks with everything”. Every ad on TV, bar a few, must have, it seems, a black man or woman, regardless of context. Often, a black man with white woman in a quasi-marital set-up, and with mixed-race children.
Likewise, every “British” TV drama (even one set in the Tudor era, the Viking era etc) has to include blacks, sometimes even as historical characters who were unassailably white European, such as Anne Boleyn. I am told that the apparently popular drama Bridgerton has blacks as well: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridgerton#Historical_accuracy.
The makers usually weasel out of justified criticism by saying that such programmes are fictional, not meant to be accurate historically etc.
I blogged about this years ago: see
but the intensification of the propaganda campaign has surprised me in its concentration.
For example, this evening, I saw an ad break with a number of ads. Only one, showing a white pensioner enjoying a hearing aid, did not have blacks in it. Some of the others were really ludicrous, such as the ad featuring a black woman as a dairy farmer in England! Are there any such? I do not rule out the remote possibility that one exists somewhere, amid the thousands of white dairy farmers.
Another ad I saw, advertising Cornetto ice-cream, had what seemed to be a basically white family sitting on and around a sofa, with a black man tacked on to one end (like a bookend).
As I have said before, that kind of propaganda is now inescapable, and is not aimed at me (aged 65), not aimed at even 30-somethings; no, it is really aimed at children, or anyway those under 20. People whose critical faculties are as yet not fully developed.
The aim is to normalize the mixed-race society. It is all part of the Coudenhove-Kalergi propaganda campaign, “The Great Replacement”, “The Great Reset” etc.
The international conspiracy is playing a long game, but one the urgency of which has quickened now that we are in 2022, the most significant year since 1989.
Oh, dear…and I thought that that area (seen by me in 2017) could not possibly get any worse. https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.
Ha. Yes. Some of the prominent Jews on Twitter announce from time to time that they “have Covid” and even “have Covid again“. Some only say so because of an inconclusive test, and without even the mildest symptoms. Pathetic.
Anyone who thinks that “Boris”-idiot will voluntarily give up his chances to grandstand at such pseudo-elite jamborees, is not thinking clearly.
Kremenchuk sits between Dnipro and Kiev, on the river Dnieper. The attack, certainly not random, is a clear sign, and perhaps a warning to Ukrainian civilians, that Russian forces are going to move as I predicted on the blog over the past month or so, i.e. northwards from the Sea of Azov coastal zone, following the river, and (once the Donbass and the Kharkov area are secured) northwest and west respectively from those areas, until most of Ukraine east of the Dnieper is secured and then occupied.
“Kremenchuk is one of the most important railway junctions in Central Ukraine (thanks to its geographical position and a bridge over the River Dnipro) and a major river port on the main river of Ukraine.” [Wikipedia]

Apropos people who are thick becoming barristers. David Lammy has a three hour slot on LBC radio each weekend. This past weekend he decided to dedicate a one hour ‘call-in’ show to “the slave trade”.
I couldn’t believe my ears when he told listeners that everything he had known about the slave trade, he learned from the drama Roots. Lammy said that he didn’t realise until years later that the slave trade was anything but an American thing. He actually broadcast to listeners that he hadn’t known of British involvement at all, until he was at College and they held a ‘slavery emancipation day’!
He further opined that you only have to look at the condition of black people in his constituency, to observe how slavery is still impacting on black people. He failed to explain exactly how.
Lammy really is ‘the gift that keeps on giving’ of those who have been given opportunities beyond their intelligence, purely because they are black skinned.
Yes, on paper Lammy has a solid academic and other record, but then you see that his degree was at SOAS, London, and his rubberstamped one-year “Master’s” from Harvard was a matter of just turning up and ticking appropriate boxes. Likewise his legal career (a gopher at a couple of American firms for 2 years or so, and maybe a couple of years at the criminal Bar in London).
Lammy is actually hugely ignorant, and (imo) not very intelligent at all.
