Britain 2022— life in the jungle

Just a few examples of how life in the multikulti UK is sliding towards chaos and evil. We all know in our hearts that there will be, in the end, only one way to deal with all of this, but even on a blog such as this, it cannot be expressed, by reason of the repression on free speech that now exists.

An amusing parody of the tweets of “Bootstrap Cook”, aka “Jack Monroe”.

As to the real Jack Monroe, she is waiting for the (as she calls it) “trash fire” of criticism about her alleged “grifting”, untruthful back-story and/or “frauds” to abate, so that she can carry on making a good living by putting up a facade of “helping the poor” while taking in money from donors, “patrons”, the msm, and her book royalties. The whole lot may add up to ยฃ100,000 a year, or more. In the absence of transparency, it is hard to know.

I am just now looking at the Patreon page of the “Bootstrap Cook”: 664 patrons paying out between ยฃ3.50 and ยฃ10 a month for what is alleged to be…nothing, or nothing much.

She only had 663 mugs paying out yesterday, so she has actually gained one new mug-patron since yesterday, despite the tide of outrage. There’s one born every minute, or at least every day, it seems…

The way people, including people surviving on small State benefits, are subsidizing the lifestyle of “Jack Monroe”, reminds me of the way some deluded elderly people used to post ยฃ5 notes to the late Queen whenever she let slip some nonsensical statement in the Press about how she was “feeling the pinch” and so “having to economize”. Apparently, the donors would all be sent a nice letter as if from the Queen, thanking them for their gift. Shameless. Admittedly, I suppose that the late Queen could hardly refuse the money. Awkward.

The “oblique warfare” now being waged by Russia against Kiev-regime electricity generation will have a huge effect if it continues. The civilian population will be cold and unable to cook food, and manufacturing of equipment and arms will be halted.

Gas supplies from Russia were cut off when the war started. The next step may be to stop all electricity generation, eg by hitting the Dnieper dam and other hydro stations, and at the same time hitting road transport by hitting fuel-storage places.

The Kiev-regime army and air force will be unable to move far or fast once their fuel runs out.

I hear that the Kiev regime is also rapidly running out of ground-to-air missiles. If the supply runs out completely, there will probably be a Russian air offensive to cripple vital infrastructure further, as happened when the Americans attacked Iraq.

It is clear that the Russian Army is having problems with recruitment, training, and discipline, but the recruitment is going ahead, and presumably the other problems are being addressed.

It may be that, next summer, there will be a massive frontal assault on Kiev, with the aim of capturing the city, and driving the Jew Zelensky and his cohorts out of the city, to Lvov or overseas.

Amusing exchange

As regular readers will have noticed, my assessment of “Jack Monroe” published on 30 September 2022 noted that the fans of the “Bootstrap Cook” tend to be persons not at all badly-off, who (literally) support her for general socio-political reasons; in a word, middle-class virtue-signallers just like the tweeter there, one Freya Vass, an American now lecturing in dance at the University of Kent: see https://www.kent.ac.uk/arts/people/2144/vass-rhee-freya; https://uk.linkedin.com/in/freya-vass-62280029.

The “Bootstrap Cook” has hit a rich vein of gullibility from which to profit— people who imagine that they are doing their bit to improve the world by sending money to “Jack Monroe” to support the lifestyle of the same.

Here is another recent tweet reply by the same person, Freya Vass (who sounds pretty loony):

Incidentally, if anyone has not read that assessment of the “Bootstrap Cook”, here it is: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/. I think that it is fair (as all my profiles of the “famous” and/or infamous strive to be).

I somehow missed that in 2020.

If accurate, it proves that my instinct about Liz Truss, i.e. that she was being banged by woolly-head Kwarteng, was correct (indeed, if the document is to be believed, by young researchers as well).

Even I, thought cynical as can be about the MPs in the corrupt Westminster monkeyhouse, am surprised at the actual extent of the degeneracy.

Looks as if Indian supposed “clever boy” and money-juggler, Sunak, is finding the job not very easy.

The UK Government cannot defend its own borders yet is determined to help defend those of a shambolic, corrupt, failed “state” that did not even exist before 1991.

Strange. When I had to go to hospital unexpectedly from Cambridge County Court (about 15 years ago) with a minor problem, I was waiting between therapies, alone in a large area at around midday, when a porter came through with various lunch dishes for in-patients, and offered me anything I might want. I selected a fish and chips. No charge. Thanks very much. Still appreciated today.

Apropos of nothing much, when I first visited Qatar, in 2001 (before its explosive development), I returned to my pleasant hotel from a meeting, and felt hungry. Outside a room on my corridor, someone had left a room service plate outside a door, with an uneaten and unpeeled banana and orange on the plate. I took both fruits and enjoyed them in my room, but then thought “what if that was caught on camera? Might I get my hand chopped off for the sake of that bloody banana?” In fact, no (Islamic law is not quite as strict as that anyway, even in Saudi Arabia), but it gave me a few anxious minutes.

I’m A Celebrity

Watched the minute or so at the start of the show, to see whether Little Matt Hancock was featured. All the existing “celebrities” were shown in cameo. I only recognized two of them (Boy George and Mike Tindall). Maybe it’s an age thing, or a culture thing…

  1. If the Russians do as you suggest what is the betting that ‘our’ globalist stupid ‘Tory’ government gives the corrupt ‘let us bring on a world war’ Jew Zelensky refuge in Britain?

    There must be a very high probability of that so they can demonstrate, once again, their anti-Russian, PC globalist virtue signalling that is costing the long-suffering British taxpayer billions. Money we don’t have to waste.๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

      I doubt that Zelensky would want to shelter in the UK, in view of the fact that he owns a USD $40 million house or villa in Florida, another multi-million villa in Italy, and no doubt other properties elsewhere. The British taxpayer is wasting money on that bastard and his wife and cronies while many of our people are suffering.

  2. If only we could have a pro-British, ‘Britain FIRST’ foreign policy like true Tory PM, Neville Chamberlain, attempted to have.

    Simply put, Eastern Europe is a deeply unstable part of the world and has been for many decades now. It really is no accident the origins of WW1 lay in the Balkans.

    We should not be interfering. Let Russia and Ukraine sort out their differences by themselves.

  3. So Ukrainians are provided with largesse by the globalist, anti-British ‘Tory’ government during cold weather yet this wretched ‘government’ won’t lift a finger to prevent British poor people and OUR ex servicemen (far too many of whom are homeless) from dying of the cold.

    SICK is the only fit word to describe this attitude.๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

    Doing what they propose is a waste of time anyway. Russia will win this war in the fullness of time. If Russia could eventually hold off the extreme might of Nazi Germany with its pretty good soldiers then Ukraine won’t be much bother.

    Russia often starts off wars in a disorganized and shambolic way but they get going eventually. This is the Slavic and Russian tradition.

      There is something in what you say. First World War— an almost-immediate massive defeat at Tannenberg, no great victories thereafter, but Russia was still standing, still plugging, until the Bolshevik seizure of power; Second World War— at first huge losses of men, planes, tanks, territory, not to mention blind panic in Moscow, but then stabilization and, by 1945, a terrible bloody victory over the German Reich.

      1. Yes, it is foolish of other countries to underestimate how stoic and determined the Russian people and the people of their armed forces can be. Russia has never been an easy country to live in for anyone and that environment has moulded the character of its people.

        Russians can be undisciplined without a firm command structure. Once they have that, they can be very dogged and/or stoical.

        I think that the outcome in Ukraine depends as much on what happens in Russia itself, including in the Putin power bubble, as on whatever transpires on the battlefield.

      I think that America started to decay socially after 1956. The process was well underway by the 1960s. By that time, the wealthy “elite” did not send their sons into battle. Compare to WW2: inter alia, Presidents Kennedy and Bush (snr) both served (and both saw real action, in the Pacific, against a clever and merciless foe, the Japanese).

  4. Ha, ha, so even an Asian person on Twitter can’t find a good word to say about Sunak.

    Yes, Sunak is over promoted not as much as Truss but the difference isn’t as huge as many people think. Sunak was not an brilliant Chancellor by any means. He made quite a few grievous errors of judgement in that post most notably coming out with an utterly stupid idea to promote visitations of restaurants ect in the middle of a worldwide viral pandemic with that gormless ‘Eat Out To Help Out’ scheme something NO other country did not even libertarian loony USA under Trump!

    If the Tories had any sense they would have gone for Mordaunt or if he had put himself forward again, Jeremy Hunt.

    Hunt isn’t brilliant but he does have the natural ability to be PM and is one of the very few leading Tories who have a decent IQ level or basic competence.
