There comes a point, under any system, where the people are just being exploited and also led to disaster by the governing regime or political class. At that point, a vanguard of the people is entitled to use any methods to topple those exploiters and mis-rulers.
“The welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].
At present, an illegitimate “Conservative” government is (superficially) “opposed” by an Opposition which is anti-British and in fact not opposed to the really big Government policies. Look at “Labour”. Does it oppose Con policy on Ukraine, “Covid”, mass immigration etc? Not really. Tweaks and nuances only.
More tweets seen
Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng
I have seen a few tweets to the effect that Liz Truss is or was getting banged —to put it colloquially— by Woolly-head Kwarteng. There have even been a few tweets from msm commentators implying it quite strongly. It may or may not be true. We know that Liz Truss was having an affair with influential then MP Mark Field about 15-20 years ago; she therefore, more or less, became an MP at least partly on her back.
As for Kwasi Kwarteng, until several years ago, he was in a personal relationship with unpleasant one-time MP and Cabinet minister, Amber Rudd. He then married a younger Amber Rudd lookalike.
Our political system is a bad joke, and those at the heart of it are of the same ilk.
Ideas on tax, economy etc
What would I do if I were in the seat(s) of power?
First of all, we need to give tax legitimacy in the eyes of the public. It may be simpler and more efficient to do it in the way that happens now, i.e. to get tax monies from different sources (income tax, VAT, “National Insurance” —very outdated and misleading—, road tax etc) and then allocate the money by government to various spending outflows, but that way of doing things distances the tax from the tax-payers.
I suggest that at least some tax revenues be ringfenced for specific purposes, so that, eg, a certain percentage goes specifically to the NHS or health and care overall. Likewise, road tax should go specifically to roads, or perhaps to transport (inc. rail) overall.
Maximum income and capital should be enforced. It might be that the maximum income allowed should be, net of income tax, about £200,000. As for capital, perhaps the permitted limit should be around £100M. I do not think that these measures could be claimed as dictatorial or extreme.
The same with land. In most of England, there should be a limit on acreage owned by one person or family. Perhaps 1,000 acres. In Scotland or Wales, perhaps 5,000 acres.
Again, scarcely “communistic”, in my view.
There is an argument that income tax should actually be abolished and replaced by variable-rate VAT and/or purchase taxes. Something that should be looked at by experts, anyway.
Basic Income must surely come, at least for those without other income above, say, £15,000 pa, even if the actual amount of Basic Income is only something like £10,000 or £15,000 a year. Again, specialists need to look at the topic in detail.
Companies doing business in the UK, such as Amazon, need to be paying a transaction tax, even if only 50p or £1 per transaction.
Just a few of the necessary measures.
Needless to say, I should have preferred it had the Reich prevailed in its titanic struggle with the Soviet Union in the 1940s, but we must take history as it turned out.
Presentationally, looking at that, it seems to me that Hunt has placed himself in a solid position to replace Liz Truss, in that what Con Party has to try to do now is project a “grown up” and/or “stable” image, to detoxify the perception that a loony and ignorant woman and her woolly-haired African “friend” are running the UK into the ground.
Either Liz Truss becomes “the prisoner of Downing Street”, allowed less power than Larry the Cat, or she is just pushed out completely.
I am no pro-Hunt (or Conservative Party) partisan, obviously, but who looks more “Prime Ministerial”? Hunt (as seen above), or Liz Truss (as seen, eg, in her recent Press conference car crash)? Not even a question, really.
Sooner or later, Russia will win this war, which has become so sad and grim.

“A WELSH Conservative MP has been described as “not credible” when giving evidence at his trial related to an early hours car crash which demolished a telegraph pole.
Jamie Wallis was convicted of three offences, but cleared of driving without due care and attention, in relation to the early hours crash last November when he was wearing a “black leather mini-skirt” and “high heels”.
The MP told the court he was transgender, said he had swerved to avoid a cat and left the scene because he had become “overwhelmed” by his recently diagnosed PTSD and felt vulnerable in women’s clothing – having been raped the last time he wore such an outfit publicly.
Convicting Wallis of the other three charges, – failing to stop, failing to report a road traffic collision and leaving a vehicle in a dangerous position – Judge Ikram said: “I am going to be upfront: I didn’t find the defendant credible in the evidence he gave.”“
What a bunch of clowns most of the MPs are. Quite a few of them are just sick, in fact.
Britain 2022— honesty and truth get you into trouble…
“A retired biomedical scientist who posted ‘only women have a cervix’ has been booted from the profession after a tribunal ruled he was ‘inflaming gender discrimination’.
Blood expert Malcolm Needs was accused of uploading a string of social media posts that a disciplinary panel found were ‘seriously offensive and discreditable’
One of the now-deleted posts he was punished for sharing said: ‘Only women have a cervix. There, I said it, it’s not difficult. Women also have a right to women-only spaces. Speaking up in defence of women’s rights doesn’t mean we can’t respect how others wish to live their lives.’
While another added: ‘I Swear my head will explode if another person classes me as a “cis woman”. I am NOT a cis woman but I AM a woman. I have a cervix which no man can claim to have and biologically that will never change. I am not just tired of this insanity but I’m fed up of being labelled.’
The 67-year-old’s social media rants led to the former chief examiner in transfusion medicine for the Institute of Biomedical Science being struck off after a panel found his posts ‘seriously offensive and discreditable’.
But a defiant Needs refused to attend the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service (HCPTS) disciplinary hearing.
‘How many times do I have to tell you that I want NOTHING to do with your Kangaroo Court, and that, if I get one or email about this, I will take legal advice about harassment,’ he told the panel.
…the pension [sic] targeted migrants crossing the Channel, tweeting: ‘And make them pay, like they paid the people smugglers to come over in the first place, and give our own taxpayers a rest”, while sharing an image stating, ‘Putting illegal immigrants up in 5* hotels has saved the hotel industry. So let’s save the airline industry by flying the f***ers back home!!”.
The committee also found that Needs’ Twitter activity was ‘dismissive and offensive towards black people’ – citing a tweet stating that ‘Multiculturalism destroys culture’, which the panel found to be ‘inflammatory, divisive and prejudiced’.
Another post, which asked if there is ‘ANYTHING that is not racist?’, was found to intentionally ‘inflame a controversial and heated situation’.
Needs, now of South Devon, ‘voluntarily absented himself’ from the disciplinary hearing by sending an email telling the tribunal that he was ‘happily retired’.
Deciding to strike him off, the tribunal said that there had been no evidence of ‘any remorse, reflection or remediation’ on Needs’ part, and there remained a high risk of repetition.“
Note the Daily Mail monkey’s (“journalist’s”) semi-literate Sun-speak: spelling errors, hyperbole, and pejorative language (perfectly OK comments described as “rants” etc).
My own experience, in 2016, of having been similarly targeted, in my case by [a fanatical small part of] the Jew-Zionist element:
Incidentally, the comments of Daily Mail readers are entirely supportive of Mr. Needs.
I have more that I should like to write about the case reported upon, but think that I shall keep my powder dry, for now.
I think that the sneak who, in Stasi “inoffizielle Mitarbeiter” style, denounced Mr. Needs to the “kangaroo court” tribunal and/or regulator, should himself have his identity exposed.
