The “Glorious 12th”
12 August, and the start of the open season for grouse in England.
About 4% of England consists of grouse moor, some 1.3M acres, and almost all (as much as 99%) of that is in private hands.
Even leaving aside the ethics of shooting living birds “for fun”, this is not good. The red grouse is increased in number by reason of being bred for the shoot, and a few other species (curlew, lapwing etc) may also be helped, but many others (both birds and ground animals) are persecuted and their numbers reduced by direct action of gamekeepers and/or by habitat loss.
A clip from a year ago:
The grouse moors should mostly be rewilded. That would aid nature conservation, also conserve water, and improve aesthetics as well.

The BBC has lost both its authority and its reason to exist
“Former Crimewatch presenter Sue Cook has criticised the BBC’s ‘shameful’ reporting, claiming the broadcaster is concerned with ticking ‘woke boxes’….
…she accused the corporation of not wanting to ‘question anything’, particularly during the pandemic, as she claimed the BBC is no longer the ‘absolute national institution’ that it used to be.
‘Sadly it’s not looking very good,’ she told Nigel Farage on his GB News show Talking Pints. ‘It was an absolute national institution and a huge treasure, and I think they still do some good dramas although not quite as good as they used to be.
‘You see all the woke boxes being ticked, as the cast comes on.’
Miss Cook added: ‘The foreign correspondents are still second to none – people like Frank Gardner and Jeremy Bowen and Orla Guerin are wonderful. But the news-gathering is really quite shameful. And they don’t seem to want to question anything.’
She lambasted the BBC for its Covid coverage.
‘It is shameful,’ she said. ‘Throughout lockdown did anybody ever ask, “Why?” How are children going to be affected if you’re closing schools? How are university students affected if you’re shutting universities? Knife crime went up. Was there any journalism about that?’
‘In my day we’d have found out the truth.”
The above tweets are not completely accurate. For one thing, a lawyer qualified and/or licensed to practice in one or more states of the USA is not, thereby, a “US Attorney“. This is an irritating error that one sees quite often, not only in tweets by ignorant persons on Twitter, but even in UK newspapers.
A U.S. Attorney is, quite specifically, an attorney who is a Federal prosecutor. I have met a number of them.
Someone qualified to practise law in one or more states of the USA is merely an attorney, not a “US Attorney”, and that is so whether or not a US citizen. The correct term would be “American attorney”, or simply “attorney”.
As for Suella Braverman’s default(s), the tweets below explain the situation quite well. It seems that (like me), Suella Braverman qualified for the New York Bar [Bar of the State of New York] and then, also like me, either never practised there, or ceased to live and practise in New York or other part of the USA.
I myself paid my New York Bar dues for years (I think USD $300 every couple of years) until, circa 2010, I realized that it was money thrown away, and that I would never return to work as a lawyer in the USA. I was therefore and thenceforth “delinquent” in terms of non-payment, though (as far as I know) was never actually suspended from practice.
Water under the bridge now in any event for me and, presumably, also for Suella Braverman.

You just know that, even if the amount of money given to the police doubled overnight, they would still be trying to act like a poundland KGB rather than doing their proper job. They would double down on “anti-racism”, “anti-Semitism”, anti-“trans” nonsense etc, “Covid” (etc) nonsense. Why? Because the groups and (((cabals))) behind all that have wormed their way into various police forces, government, and of course the (((occupied))) msm. My own most recent experience: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.
As my above post and others indicate, this is far from being a London problem alone. Other police forces have shown themselves also stupid and incompetent, including those of Derbyshire, Devon and Cornwall, and Essex. I might add Hampshire to that list, looking at what happened to me on several occasions from 2014 to January this year.
So much for “unprecedented” drought conditions in Europe.
Europe’s population is now far larger than it was in 1616, leading to greater demand for water but, on the other side of the scales, we have resources that the people of 17thC Europe did not have— large reservoirs, desalination, piping, pumping, cloud-seeding, and artesian wells etc (artesian water was first accessed by drilling in the 12thC, but in a very primitive and limited way compared to what is possible today: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artesian_aquifer).
So mediocre is Sunak, that the implication of the question does not seem to hit him immediately.
It is so easy for people from wealthy or at least affluent backgrounds to create a good-looking CV, and so pose as hugely educated and/or intelligent. Look at the “Boris”-idiot buffoon.
… and why do so many of our befuddled population think that all of the above, and more (mass immigration, low pay, low pensions and other benefits, the police not doing their proper job but acting as a poundland KGB etc) can be put to one side just because some supposedly “national” football, cricket, or rugby team wins some meaningless televized pleb-fest somewhere?
I prefer my own kind of coffee…
The Jew-Zionist Zelensky regime in Kiev may not be winning the attritional war in Eastern Ukraine, but has certainly won the propaganda war, so far. Not so unexpected. Almost all Jews in the West support the Kiev regime, and have done from the start of the conflict. Jews permeate the Western mainstream media.
Those factors have meant uncritical acceptance of everything put out by Zelensky and his cabal, and a completely biased, one-sided, view of the war.
What is so absurd about both Sunak and Truss (and Starmer, for that matter) is that none of those System drones actually have any vision, not even to the extent, limited as it was, of Blair and Brown (and others).
The migration invasion continues, with UK government UK “Opposition”, UK “authorities”, Royal Navy, Border Farce, and RNLI, inter alia, complicit.

Wonderful news! It couldn’t happen to a nicer bloke! (LOL)
I always said (and would love to make it possible) that people who enjoy chasing and killing animals should be chased and killed in the same manner. When they ask “Why?” We should say “Is just a bit of fun, as YOU said after chasing and murdering a fox”
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11107671/Salman-Rushdie-ventilator-speak-likely-lose-eye-stabbed.html What a cohencidence! 🤔 Now (((they))) can label it terrorism and use it as a pretext to put further pressure on Iran!

(((They))) are never short of pretexts or excuses, so this attack does not matter. The main thing is, that Rushdie is not likely to survive. Having said that, this attack came nearly 30 years too late. The bastard had lots of time to enjoy his undeserved wealth and popularity. Anyway, [REDACTED]…
Regret that I had to redact your last sentence, lest (((the usual suspects))) try once more to get the manacles on me by making yet another malicious complaint to the “authorities”.
No worries, I understand. Is not easy to control my temper, bloody Italian blood! (LOL)
Were I to be hauled away for “thought crime”, you might miss reading my daily blog…
