On this day a year ago
England, my England
I was sent the following short video by a regular reader and commentator on the blog.
Worth watching. The comments below the film (if seen on YouTube) are also worth seeing.
It seems that the plan to demonize people like the character in the film backfired; the BBC has never shown the series again; neither is it available on DVD.
Sea level rise
Interesting report on the situation in respect of the main ice sheets, namely the East Antarctic, West Antarctic, and Greenland.
It seems that, were they to melt completely, the global sea level would rise by 7 metres Greenland Ice Sheet), 5 metres (West Antarctic Ice Sheet) and East Atlantic Ice Sheet (52 metres). A total of 64 metres, or in my preferred metric, about 210 feet.
A sea-level rise of 210 feet would be truly apocalyptic, even though it would probably take place over several hundred years.
The UK has an average height above sea-level of about 531 feet, but within that is a peak of 4,413 feet (Ben Nevis) down to towns and cities at, or close to, sea-level.
For example, much of London would be flooded in that scenario: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest_points_in_London.
On a less apocalyptic level, if the Greenland Ice Sheet were to melt entirely, which might (or might not) happen by 2100, that would result in the seas rising by up to 24 feet, in itself enough to drown a large number of major cities around the world.
I once lived at Little Venice, London, which I believe is about 60 feet above sea level. Much of Central London as well as the Thames-side areas would be flooded by a 24-foot rise.
My problem with many of the predictions is that they are made with an agenda, to make people believe that some kind of “zero-emissions” strategy, even if carried out only in Europe, or even only in the UK (the UK being responsible for only 1% of global emissions) would halt the melting of the ice of the poles. I doubt it.
The world is in a state of constant change, sometimes gradual, sometimes catastrophic. Humanity lives on the surface of events which it can do little to alter.
The most ridiculous story of the month?
A crowded field, but I nominate the declaration by unpleasant comic Eddie Izzard that he is now a “woman”, and henceforth demands to be termed “her” and “she”. Possibly even more ridiculous, even the supposedly reactionary Daily Mail has complied with the demand: see https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11100935/Eddie-Izzard-takes-inspiration-Zelensky-fresh-bid-MP.html.
The Mail goes on to describe the Jew dictator Zelensky as “a comic who becomes a good leader“. “Good leader“?! Ha ha!
More seriously, once you start lying about such basic things as what actual sex people are, truth, which is the foundation for any decent society, starts to ebb away; with it, that foundation also ebbs away, until nothing works properly, and nothing can be relied upon. Britain is already some way down that path.
USD $1.5M between 8 litigants. Even after costs, they will surely end up with over $100,000 each. Not bad for being notionally “offended” by an order that was rescinded an hour later. More “diversity” madness.
Ellwood is always in the forefront of attacks on Russia. He was a junior officer of the Green Jackets before he was transferred to the Reserves, taking up the rank of Lt.-Col. in the secretive 77th Brigade: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tobias_Ellwood; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/77th_Brigade_(United_Kingdom).
The Wikipedia entry mentions that Ellwood was born in New York City, and was also at school at Bonn and Vienna before attending Loughborough University (course unknown to me), the Cass Business School at City University in London, then Sandhurst.
Ellwood’s parents’ work is not mentioned in Wikipedia, but we can probably assume that it was diplomatic, or linked to diplomacy. Both Bonn and Vienna were, at the time, capital cities, and there is a British Consulate-General in New York City.
It seems that all that expensive education has been wasted on Ellwood. Does he really not see that conflict with Russia might lead to war with Russia?
I suppose that Russian forces would not waste a nuclear missile on Ellwood’s decaying Bournemouth constituency (he himself lives in a wealthy semi-rural enclave called Holdenhurst), but in the event of war, Russian missiles would more or less raze much of England to the ground. Goodbye to the Palace of Westminster, and almost everything else, in that event.
Attacks on Russian aviation in Crimea, in Belarus etc. The war may be about to enter a new phase, should the Russian forces be ordered to retaliate.
The Zelensky regime is trying to create provocations, because it knows that the only way it can avoid defeat in this war is to bring in NATO (NWO) forces on the Ukrainian side. Already, the arms shipments from the USA and UK have reached colossal proportions, and, bearing in mind that the arms, ammunition, and training are all being supplied free of charge, represent something that is not only a proxy war against Russia but also not far from being an actual or direct war against Russia.
So far, the NATO/NWO backers of the Jewish regime in Kiev have not attempted, at least publicly, to rein in the behaviour of Zelensky and his clan.
This is madness. The UK and other states have already weakened their economies and societies by the pursuit of the “Covid” “panicdemic”, shutting their economies down for months and years. Now those same societies are facing gas shortages and a huge rise in price of oil and gas.
The UK, after nominal Brexit, should have opened up friendly relations with Russia on a broad front, including supply by Russia to the UK of cheap or even cost-price gas and oil.
The fact is that those presently ruling the UK prefer to conspire with their fellow NWO operatives, implementing the strategic assault on Russia, and such other parts of the NWO/ZOG agenda such as the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, rather than putting the needs of the British people first.
“A man has admitted feeding poisoned tuna to his neighbours’ cats in the first case of animal cruelty to be referred to a crown court.
Tristian Paul Pearson, 44, left out tubs containing fish tuna and a high concentration of ethylene glycol.
The substance is highly poisonous to felines and is contrary to the Animal Welfare Act 2006.
Two cats living nearby – Luna and Bailey – later had to be put down after eating the tuna and falling sick.
Pearson, of Bargoed, Wales, pleaded guilty to an Animal Welfare Act offence and was handed an eight month suspended prison sentence.
It was the first case of its kind to be referred to a crown court.”
What on Earth is the point in giving the courts a higher possible maximum level of punishment if the sentencing judge refuses, in effect, to sentence harshly enough in a plainly serious and premeditated case of cruelty such as this one?
In reality, not theory, 8 months but suspended, handed down in the Crown Court, is less of a punishment than the previous maximum of 6 months (3 months actual imprisonment) that a magistrates’ court might have imposed.
Absolutely pathetic sentence.
Tristian (?) Paul Pearson, of West Street, Bargoed, Wales. Evil bastard.

I happened to see a case which illustrates the backlog in the “justice system”, a backlog caused almost entirely by the “panicdemic”.
A policeman in Hampshire has just pleaded not guilty to a sex crime allegedly committed in January this year. His case has been set down for trial at Isleworth Crown Court on 4 December 2023, nearly 2 years after the offence is said to have been committed and 16 months after committal proceedings.
Sea shanty time
A complete fake.
