Well, this week I again beat political journalist John Rentoul, but only just, scoring 6/10 to his 5/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 5, 6, and 7. Amazing that Rentoul apparently did not know where Copacabana is.
The saga of the Royal Mulatta and the Royal Cuck continues
“There are rumours that the cover of Harry’s upcoming tell-all memoir about his horrid life as a royal features a picture not just of him, as you’d expect, but Megs, too. The word emasculated comes to mind.
He has become a walk-on part in The Me-Me-Meghan Show, eclipsed by his wife’s ambition.
I never thought I’d say this, but I feel sorry for Harry.“
[Amanda Platell, in the Daily Mail: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-11150647/PLATELLS-PEOPLE-believe-Im-saying-feel-sorry-Harry.html].
I do not take more than a passing interest in the activities of the Meghan and Harry show, but it strikes me that the closest facsimile of their relationship might be that of absurd TV cook Fanny Cradock and her long-suffering husband, Johnnie, whom the ghastly woman treated like a particularly abused servant; almost a serf, in fact.
I recall Fanny Cradock on TV when I was a small child, in the early 1960s, and the crazed creature was on British TV occasionally until the mid 1980s.
“Fanny and Johnnie Cradock began writing a column under the pen name of “Bon Viveur” which appeared in The Daily Telegraph from 1950 to 1955. This sparked a theatre career, with the pair turning theatres into restaurants. Cradock would cook vast dishes that were served to the audience. They became known for their roast turkey, complete with stuffed head, tail feathers and wings. Complete with French accents, their act was one of a drunken hen-pecked husband and a domineering wife. At this time, they were known as Major and Mrs Cradock.”
“[Johnnie] is best remembered as being the long-suffering stooge for his wife in their popular British cooking programmes which were shown from the 1950s to the 1970s. Wearing a traditional blazer and sporting a monocle, he would remain around the back of Fanny’s studio sets awaiting her imperious commands which, when they came, often resulted in his being berated for being too slow.”
The Royal Mulatta has something else in common with Fanny Cradock— an “inventive” memory in recalling her own background and history.
Who would have thought that I would ever agree with Julie Burchill?
Sometimes, “a thought out of season” comes to me, the dystopian idea that the present decline of Western society will be ended not with debates or literary disagreements (or rigged elections) but with some kind of multifaceted “Holy War”…
Nordic noirs (literally)
Yesterday, I watched the first episode of a Swedish detective series. Not sure whether I shall bother to watch the rest, mainly because I found it all rather contrived. What struck me, though, was the number of blacks and browns shown. Is that how Sweden really is now, or have the media people exaggerated the proportion (as they have in almost everything shown about the UK)?
On that same theme, the show had a number of (“British”) ad breaks, each with quite a few ads. Every single ad had blacks or half-castes (“mixed-race” persons, if you like) in it. This is pure propaganda. I know that I have been blogging about this evil campaign for a few years now
but we must never allow it to become normalized, certainly not without at least having dissenting voices heard.
As we know, “the pen is mightier than the sword“, but that is precisely why the enemies of freedom of expression try to “cancel” people, and to take away their right to speak or write.
In my case, though “antifa” idiots would probably like to “cancel” even my blog, the cabals who have made repeated and serious efforts to take me down have all in fact been those composed of Jew-Zionists: 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/; and 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/.
I had my Twitter account removed in 2018 by reason of the manipulations of the same Jew-Zionists, really just a quite small handful of individuals plotting together, and presenting themselves as if a large and/or “important” organization (the so-called “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism”, or “CAA”, mainly).
The enemies of civilization are of various kinds. May they all end the same way.
I was tweeting in the same vein (before the Jewish lobby had my Twitter account taken away in 2018) for about 7 years, amid the economic illiteracies of the fake (and disastrous) “austerity” policies promoted by the part-Jews George Osborne and David Cameron-Levita, and supported by the part-Japanese sadist Iain Dunce Duncan Smith. I have, also, been blogging along similar lines since late 2016.
The well-known book The Spirit Level is still worth reading. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spirit_Level_(book).
If you transfer money to people on low incomes, they spend it (and almost have to spend it), thus stimulating the economy. If you do the same to people on moderate incomes, they will both spend some and invest some, but if you give money to very wealthy people who already have more than enough to satisfy both needs and wants, they will mostly park that money in hedging assets such as real property (and thus drive up the current value of such assets without actually helping the economy).
In essence, that is why it is better to have at least moderate redistribution of wealth.
Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak both seem to believe in some pathetic “trickle-down” economic theory of the 1980s “Reaganomics” kind. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reaganomics, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supply-side_economics, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trickle-down_economics.
So “they voted for Boris“? How truly stupid are those voters?
Liz Truss will say anything, just to win the contest and/or get through the next day, or the next week, just as Boris-idiot does.
Never a word in the msm or on these online comment sites about how a foreigner should never be Prime Minister of this country, even if one of his passports is “British”.
