…”yet answer came there none“….
I have no idea whether “Jack Monroe” is or was a cocaine abuser, though I have seen numerous allegations on Twitter to that effect.
Maybe I was a little too kind…
Well, journalism is not a “profession”, as such, just an “occupation”, but I agree otherwise.

He has a point. Major utilities (water, electricity, gas etc) and railways should, in general, be under public control. Oil companies might be more difficult, but had Britain, from the 1970s onward, done what Norway did, and used North Sea oil and gas for national purposes, we would all be better off now.
Very true. I have blogged a few times about how uncertain life can be, especially for those without much back-up by way of family money or inherited capital: see, eg, https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/08/25/diary-blog-25-august-2022-with-a-few-thoughts-about-poverty-and-living-through-hard-times/.
Incidentally, I happened to see the crowdfunding page of a lady who, with her husband, seems to have fallen on desperately hard times: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/heather-booth-3?utm_term=Gde7678Nq.
Reading her story, even £5 or £10 is going to make a real difference to her. More about her story at https://twitter.com/frugally_minded.

As far as I myself am concerned, I blog as accurately as I can about people, if individuals are mentioned. My material is true in the sense of accurate, and/or is covered by one or another of the several defences to libel known to law; besides which, I am extremely impecunious these days, have only the smallest income, do not own a house (even mortgaged) and so am, in effect, as good as unsueable.
I can guarantee that anyone launching an action against me will lose out: probably the action would fail anyway, and even if it did not, the claimant would end up with massive and completely irrecoverable costs.
I write whatever I like, but take care to be both accurate and fair.
On Twitter, every Tom, Dick, and Harry is an “expert” on the law, and especially defamation law; few really are.
It’s pretty obvious that there is enough suspicion to validate a police fraud investigation, to discover whether any crimes have been committed.

The brainwashing taking place in UK schools (mainly but not entirely in State-run schools) is indeed appalling. It has been going on for several decades, but has been intensifying. At the same time, standards of real education and knowledge have been falling.
While some people compare the situation in the Uk to the Weimar Republic, that unpleasant and decadent time in German history lasted for only 14 years (1919 to 1933), whereas the UK version has been happening for a far longer period, at least 30 years, and arguably over 50 years.
Not that I like Churchill’s effect on British history (in particular, the crazy war against the German Reich, which destroyed the British Empire and all other European empires, and created the mess the world is in today), but he is undeniably a major historical figure, and I should not like to see the statue in question removed.
Jews always talk about “members of their family“, or even “relatives” supposedly being killed during WW2. Even leaving aside the main assertion, since when are people who (supposedly) died aboiut 80 years ago called “relatives” of quite young people now living?
As for the young or other people now living being (pretending to be) hugely upset by the (presumed) deaths of people whom they never knew anyway, it really is so much bs. Non-Jews, especially white European people, don’t usually (in fact hardly ever) do that.
I must investigate having my old Twitter account returned (complete with new blue tick), both to promote my blog and to mightily p*** off (((the usual suspects))), who put in years of effort making faked complaints to get me expelled in 2018.
Britain, now represented by a non-white Hobbit. One throwing our country’s money, arms and ammunition at the Jew Zelensky. Great…
