Then of course there was the Miners’ Strike of the early 1980s, which greatly accelerated the decline of the UK’s deep-mine coal industry.

Quite. The UK-USA treaty is basically one-sided, and entirely so in cases with a political element. The UK became a complete colony of the USA (itself under strong Jew-Israeli influence) during the tenure of Blair and Brown, and that has simply continued.

From 14 December 2022. I must have missed that one.

Christmas University Challenge

A quarter-final alumni match between University College London [UCL] and Aberdeen.

Again, neither side impressive, and once again I think that I can claim to have beaten both teams easily. The Aberdeen team was very poor, and the UCL team even worse. A few tweets make the point:

…and that was the winning team!

The writer, Ken Follett [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Follett], was on the UCL team, and obviously believes himself very clever indeed, a view not supported by this evening’s evidence. He thus joins the club already containing, inter alia, the narcissistic barrister-tweeter, Jolyon Maugham, and the faux-revolutionary oddity and “licensed Bolshevik”, Owen Jones.

Another strange one on the UCL team this evening was one Ria Lina, described as “British comedian“, but whom I now see from Wikipedia is half-Filipina, half-German, and with an American accent, no doubt from her time in an American expat school in the Netherlands: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ria_Lina. I had never heard of her. Knew absolutely nothing, and seemed to be chewing something throughout;.

  1. Hello Ian! I would love to have proof (i.e.: statements) about Zelenska’s shopping spree, of which I have no doubts. Most women nowadays are idiotic robots bent on buying anything (mostly clothes, shoes, jewellery, etc) that the media offers them. This trait is even more pronounced in the shallow, stupid wives/mistresses of the very wealthy.

      Hello. I have no idea whether the alleged spending was as alleged or not; seems very impolitic at a time when governments and citizens in the West are being begged (or held to ransom almost) for money “for Ukraine”, but there again the msm is so pro- the Kiev regime that they might even cover it up. Open question.
