On this day a year ago
Globalism at work…again. That, and a country (the UK) where people are now taught from childhood to be ashamed of their race, culture, history and former Empire. Also, the fact that much of the UK economy is in the hands of various kinds of foreigners, in this case Turkish, but more often Chinese, Jews, whatever.
Remarkable, coming from a long-term Con mouthpiece and supporter.
The time is coming when free speech, open debate etc will be banned by stealth and Lilliputian ties. To a large extent, in the UK and elsewhere, it has already happened— in the msm, in publishing, in academia etc. All areas, incidentally, where the Jew-Zionists often hold sway.
When Alexander the Great was confronted by the Gordian Knot, he realized that there was only one way to win— he drew his sword and cut the knot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordian_Knot.
[Ignore the “Bake Off” bit above].
Frightening. Also, rather facile.
“They are also the most highly-educated generation on record. This year, a record number of 435,000 18-year-olds in Britain —like my students— will arrive on campus. And this higher education, for many, helps to explain why, alongside the slightly older Millennials, they are also the most socially liberal generation in history.“
[Matt Goodwin blog].
The idea that attending a “university” (whether an ancient one or a 5-minute-old “McUniversity”) makes the attendee “highly-educated” is risible, looking at most of the graduates, let alone undergraduates.
“Consistently, Zoomers are the most supportive of Britain re-joining the European Union, the most likely to think immigration is having positive effects, and to voice strong support for rising diversity in all its forms. When I asked my students to name the most pressing problems facing the country today they either said climate change or racism. Nobody, interestingly, mentioned the economy.“
[Matt Goodwin blog].
Actually, his students sound like complete idiots. Obviously spouting the simplistic ideas pumped into them, for about 13 years, by semi-educated teachers, or via the BBC and other mass media..
“Many of these Zoomer graduates are also coming of age amid what philosopher John Gray has called ‘hyper-liberalism’ —and what others call ‘left modernism’, ‘progressive authoritarianism’, or ‘woke’ politics. While its supporters are often driven by good intentions, this is a more dogmatic, moralistic, and polarising brand of politics which promotes much looser definitions of terms such as ‘racism’ and much stricter, if not oppressive, speech codes that are used to try and curtail discrimination.”
“Personally, I suspect we are on the cusp of an entirely new cultural revolution in the West which will not only be driven by demands for more radical economic change but far more radical cultural and social change, too. And the Zoomers, as they trickle out of the universities into the institutions, will be in the driving seat of that revolution.“
[Matt Goodwin blog].
Well, it may be possible to turn the current in a more social-national direction. If not, those people will not be required.
…and all of [see above] Matt Goodwin’s eagerly “woke” students can then clap the “diversity” —and their own “tolerance”— as a torrent of cheap non-white labour continues to flood in, rendering their useless degrees about as valuable as a used bus ticket.
I am happy to see the fake “Conservative” Party about to go down the plughole, hopefully for good. Downside is, of course, that equally-fake and wrongheaded Labour will thereby grow stronger, in a basically rigged and binary system.
Still, if the Con Party can be reduced to somewhere below 200 MPs (1997-2005 levels), perhaps to as few as 100, that would be a good start to breaking up the whole rotten system.
‘Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get even worse.’
“Alt-right” schoolboy and “controlled opposition” GB News talking head, Tom Harwood, reports from the Con Party Conference.
What strikes me is how few delegates and visitors there are. Only the central part of the hall full. Would assess it as no more than 500 people. Not many, considering that the Conservative Party has 357 MPs.
Meanwhile, a Spectator scribbler thinks that the market should rule:
…though he is scarcely uncritical of the past 12 years of Con government: https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/what-do-the-tories-have-to-show-from-their-time-in-power-.
Reverting to his energy price theme, he writes (I have highlighted the key fact):
“The core problem is that without Russian gas there isn’t enough energy to go around Europe. It’s a problem that has been compounded by the fact that half of France’s nuclear reactors have been offline this summer and Norway, a major supplier of hydroelectric power, has had record low rainfall. With limited supply and high demand, people are bidding against one another for energy use. Prices will rise, and keep rising, until demand is reduced sufficiently to match supply. That’s if the market is allowed to function.Part of the problem is that the Conservative party is just the Labour party on a five-year lag...
A far better idea would be to scrap the price cap entirely, letting households pay the full cost of their energy use while doling out massive quantities of cash to those on lower incomes or with higher needs. This would preserve price signals and the incentive to use less, while also giving people enough money to keep their homes warm.
…Instead, Liz Truss is apparently planning to freeze household bills at or below £1,971, well below the actual market price of supply; the wholesale price alone for October-December is expected to be £2,491. The Times carries a slightly different version of the story where the cap is allowed to rise to £2,500 – still below the total cost of electricity.“
[Sam Ashworth-Hayes, in the Spectator].
I agree with his first sentence, and have been —probably pointlessly— blogging (for 5 years) and tweeting (until the Jew fanatics had me expelled from Twitter in 2018) about how the UK should be getting closer to Russia and, indeed, leaving NATO in return for, (among many advantages) getting cheap or even (it is possible) near-free gas from Russia, which would solve our energy problem overnight.
Instead of which, “Boris”-idiot, and now the stupid Liz Truss “ho”, have been giving billions in various ways to the Jew dictatorship in Kiev, and even threatening Russia with nuclear attack via “our” (controlled in reality by the USA) Trident nuclear submarines.
In fact, that Spectator article is worth reading in full. Ashworth-Hayes concludes by looking at the wider background:
“Part of the problem is that the Conservative party is just the Labour party on a five-year lag; once Starmer suggested freezing prices, the blue team were inevitably going to follow along at some point. But a bigger problem is that the Tories are increasingly the party of the non-working and economically inactive.
The Tory vote is old. Pensioners don’t work and don’t pay much in taxes. They certainly don’t benefit from investments that pay off 20 years down the line. They’re very happy to rack up massive bills in the present day and pass them off to their grandchildren. And they vote in massive numbers.
This gives Conservative politicians strong incentives to find ways to take from the young and the future to give to the old and the present-day. It is toxic in the long term – we have a dysfunctional housing market, twisted to prop up pensioner assets, and high taxes to fund pensioner healthcare and pensions that are destroying family formation and living standards among young people. This is the only way the current Conservative party can see itself clinging on to power. Changing the prime minister isn’t enough to change that.“
Well, there is much truth in all that, and if the “grey vote” wakes up to the fact that Liz Truss —albeit in 1995, aged 20, so be it— suggested scrapping the State Pension entirely, then the Con Party will rapidly pass into history.
The one demographic that votes Con heavily and actually votes is the (mainly) English “grey vote”, however defined (I am really talking about the 60+ age group). If that goes, the Conservative Party also goes.
“Well-regarded“? That idiot who, after a few too many glasses of whisky, shouted out that the Scottish regiments had beaten Russia in the Crimean War (according to him) and so the British Army could beat Russia today. 170 years later.
Britain has 60-200 nuclear weapons and a land area of 93,600 square miles. Russia has about 6,000 nuclear weapons and a land area of 6,601,000 square miles (about 71 times the size of the UK).
As to the “conference”, looks as though only a few dozen people are bothering to do more than drink in bars.
Is there anything the Jews will not complain about? The fact is that Schindler’s Ark, the novel (yes, novel) on which the film Schindler’s List was based, is a work of fiction: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schindler%27s_Ark. The fact that Jews have “edited” the Wikipedia entry for Schindler’s List, the film of the book, to refer to the book as a “non-fiction novel” is meaningless, as is that term itself, the more usual term being “faction”.
The famous “faction” novel by Frederick Forsyth, The Day of the Jackal, is not “non-fiction” just because a few characters in it (eg President de Gaulle) actually existed. The book is still basically fiction; so is Schindler’s Ark and the film based on it.
As a matter of fact, Schindler’s Ark was not even written by someone who experienced Germany or Poland during WW2; it was written by an Australian, Thomas Keneally, who, at the material time, was 5-10 years old and who only left Australia for the first time in 1968. Schindler’s Ark was written and published in 1982. Keneally seems to have visited Poland in or about 1980, not long before the novel was published.
“Many of his novels are reworkings of historical material, although modern in their psychology and style“

I recently assessed the “Bootstrap Cook” on the blog, having seen the Twitter (etc) storm that started a couple of months ago. https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.
Saw the first episode of This England, following the pretty disastrous tenure, as Prime Minister, of “Boris” Johnson.
It kept the interest. The casting was remarkably good, headed by a performance by Kenneth Branagh that was amazingly like the real “Boris”, to look at. Other leading characters were also well-portrayed.
I felt that it could have been harder-hitting in some areas. Still, good overall.
People on £150,000 a year are of course not the “super-rich”, but they are still making several times the average, and 10x the amount earned by huge numbers of people in this country.
Only 1% or so of the population earn that much in terms of income.
That Tony Parsons tweet shows the gulf between the msm cosmopolitan talking heads, scribblers, entertainers etc, and the vast bulk of the British people.
In a sense, surprising that Parsons should be so unaware, but “put a beggar on a horse and he rides it to death” [German proverb]. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Parsons_(British_journalist)#Background.
Britain needs a new kind of social-national movement.
The war can be brought to a halt by the West/NATO/NWO simply cutting off supplies of money, arms and ammunition to the forces of the Kiev regime. The fake state and failed state of post-1991 Ukraine will then crumble within weeks if not days.
If escalation continues, there will eventually be a strategic nuclear exchange between NATO/NWO and Russia, after which anything could happen.
It can still be stopped.

With regard to the “zoomer” generation, i watched an episode of this BBC Three series about young/rookie police officers the other night. One was a Somalian immigrant, and another was a 5ft2 woman wearing a hijab. Both were as thick as s**t.
Interesting. The English ones encountered in recent years seem to be mostly substandard too, so God knows what those others are like.

There seem to be an awful lot of homosexuals in the police now as well. Effeminate men, and fat, midget women with short hair. They can’t be much use when trying to break up fights between big giant blokes.

Hello, “SaxonEngland”! What you said does not surprise me. Do you remember an excellent video made by Mark Collet about 6 years ago? If I remember correctly the title was “British Police: Whites do not need to apply”. The title says everything. I think is still available on BITCHUTE.

Yes i’ve seen that video.
Lots of interesting things. The stupid (and ugly) puppet called Liz Truss is in hot water (LOL) apparently she has backtracked on reducing the income tax for the rich (something positive in my view, considering how the filthy rich have been exploiting the British working classes for over 40 years), Anyway, whatever she does I am sure it will be bad for the British people. Let’s face it, she is just following a script, the same as Boris the Moron.
Sad to hear about the demise of the old biscuits company, but that is cruel free-trade for you (ironically a British invention: Adam Smith and Richard Cobden, correct me if I am wrong). I will never forget Hitler’s concept of the economy: “The economy must serve the nation and not the other way round” These are NOT his exact words, but I can’t remember the original sentence (LOL)
As you say, the free trade concept was developed in the UK, as were many other connected concepts, such as the joint-stock company.
Thank you for the information regarding free-trade. I learned that Richard Cobden was a pretty decent man, he fought against the hateful Corn Laws that privileged the land owners and starved the poor. I also believe that those men would have been in favour of protecting the national industries.
Going back to Liz Truss I read somewhere that she may be out of office by March 2023. Why that date? I have also heard that some MPs were already talking about “a vote of no confidence”, but, of course, I do not know how that works.
The basic divergence in the UK of the 19thC, in terms of national economy, was between the free-traders and those who wanted to protect the price of UK agricultural products. This developed into a wider argument covering all of the economy, such as heavy industry.
Of course, in the 19th century, British industry was pre-eminent in the world, until the end of the century when it began to be challenged by American and German industry. For example, railway tracks and also the trains were often made in the UK, then exported, with engineers, to states around the world (Argentina being only one such).
The dividing lines were not clear-cut at times, and many of these issues resonate even today. The EU is protectionist, up to a point; some of the more ideological Brexiteers see Britain as a freewheeling world trader, but the problem is that we are in 2022, not 1822 or 1890.
You may be interested to know that, right up to the 1950s, British overseas colonies applied so-called “Imperial Preference”, meaning they always bought goods from British manufacturers, if possible.
As to “vote of confidence” in the Prime Minister, that can happen by motion in the House of Commons. A vote is then held. If the PM cannot win that vote on simple majority, constitutional convention dictates that he/she resigns. The constitutional book of note, Bagehot, says that a government is formed when an MP/party can “command the confidence of the House”.
A failure to win such a vote usually (though not necessarily) means that Parliament is “prorogued”, and a general election held (usually within about 2 months or so).
In this case, though, I think that the “vote of confidence” may be purely within the Conservative Party. If there is such a vote, and if Liz Truss were to lose (quite likely), then she would have to resign as Con leader (and also, though not immediately, as PM). An election for a new leader then occurs, as it did earlier this year with the resignation of “Boris” Johnson.
ps. Re. Liz Truss leaving office by March 2023, I think that they just mean “6 months from now” (approx.).
Unless those people read my blog a month or two ago, when I predicted that I would be surprised if Liz Truss were still PM by Christmas, and astonished if she were still PM next Spring…

Good afternoon! Talking about the railways in Argentina, as you may know, they had been “made in England” and run and owned by British companies.
Therefore when Peron came to power in 1946 he tried to collect some of the huge British debt derived from the never-ending Argentinian meat shipments during WW2 (described by Churchill as “vital”) but the British government cynically said “Sorry we do not have any money” therefore Peron was forced to buy, in 1947, the British railways for the astronomical sum of £ 150.000.000 (approx. £ 6.250.000.000 in today’s value) no wonder most of us hate Great Britain!!!
I am surprised by the space you have given to this woman who calls herself “The Bootstrap Cook”. For some reason, I cannot get a clear picture of the whole story, but it seems to me that those who attack her are a very nasty bunch because their hatred is out of proportion with what she allegedly has done.
What is your opinion on her?
I thought that my assessment of “Bootstrap Cook” was clear but, if not, I must examine how I lay out my thoughts on the blog.
At first, I thought her a very positive development, but now am not so sure. I think that she started off trying to help people, but realized that there was quite a bit of money in it for her, and so developed a “brand” of basically selling herself and her goods (books, T-shirts etc), while still engaging in a kind of social activism.
I think that the mainly positive picture of her about ~8 years ago changed because she has been getting (it is alleged) a regular monthly payment of £3.50 to £44 from each of 800 (at one time, about 700 now) people, in return for which she was supposed to supply goods or content which have not (in many cases) been supplied.
That is part of it, anyway.
My own view of her is far less favourable now as compared to a few years ago.
Very interesting thread that highlights a serious flaw in the Russian arsenal. This confirms what Peter Hitchens said about the Russian arsenal being decrepit and its soldiers badly trained. Actually, this has always been the case with the Russian leadership, brutal, ruthless people who don’t give a damn about losses,
