From the newspapers
“A decade of darkness, below-freezing temperatures and starvation for BILLIONS: The potential horrors of what a nuclear winter would really be like – as scientists call for ‘urgent’ public education.
While it sounds very much like a fictional scenario, an expert describes a nuclear winter as a real and ‘horribly contemporary’ risk due to Russia‘s war on Ukraine.
The research also gauged support in the UK and US for western retaliation in the event of a nuclear blast, which could be the difference between a one-off nuclear attack and an ongoing series of attacks resulting in nuclear winter.
Ingram found there was ‘a strong reluctance’ to support nuclear retaliation in response to [a] fictional Russian nuclear attack on Ukraine.
Out of all 3,000 people in the US and UK, fewer than one in five people – 19.4 per cent – surveyed supported retaliation.
Next, half of the participants in each country were shown infographics of nuclear winter before they read fictional news of nuclear strikes, while the other half were not (the control group).
Unsurprisingly, the stark infographics had the effect of putting people off retaliation.
Support for nuclear retaliation was lower by 16 per cent in the US and 13 per cent in the UK among participants shown the ‘nuclear winter’ infographics than among the control group.
‘Our research showed that when the public is aware of the global risks they are less likely to support nuclear retaliation,’ Ingram told MailOnline.“
…and for what?
So that a fake and failed “state” called Ukraine, that did not even exist as a state at any point before 1991, and which is basically a Jew-ruled kleptocracy and dictatorship, completely shambolic, can continue to fight a war which, if push comes to shove, it cannot win.
This is not our (UK’s, USA’s, France’s, Germany’s) war. Time to stop supplying money and weapons to the Kiev regime.
A whole generation, across Europe and North America, is growing up seeing ads mostly containing ugly fat black women, mixed-race couples and families, “trans” persons, every kind of ****-up etc. Who is behind it all? The (((you-know-who))), as usual.
Ha. Reminds me of when I was a superannuated Bar pupil in 1992, and we had a defendant, a big black man with an odd short haircut. He was a TV licence enforcement “officer”, and was accused at Wood Green Crown Court of blackmail and extortion, and a few other things (he was acquitted on all charges, in the end).
That case stuck with me (I was little more than a spectator) because the Indian Muslim solicitor said, angrily, after an altercation with his client, “why should I take that from a nigger with a horn in his head?” (!) and also because my pupilmaster (barrister notionally supervising me as pupil) had to make formal complaint to the judge that the alleged victim in the case had hired a number of black magic African women to intimidate the defendant (they were huge and evil-looking, and hung around the public waiting area, staring fixedly at the defendant when he was there; after the complaint, they were told by the court staff to get lost, in effect).
Those one-trick ponies, the Harry Formerly Known as Prince, and his consort, Meghan Mulatta, have all but used up their ammunition. Like defectors from the old Soviet Union, they gave what were supposedly sensational titbits at first, but then descended to less interesting material (in their case into more petty whining). To employ another metaphor, the first cold pressing of the olive produces the best oil; after that, the product is of lower quality, and watered-down.
Ha ha! That put the useless Nigerian online “grifter” in his place. I might not think much of Lee Anderson or his views, but his enemies are even less to my taste.
“Femi” is just another symptom of how sick British society now is. I wonder how long it will be before he tries to become a Labour MP? In fact, I wonder how long it will be before the Commons becomes majority non-white. Then it will be time for a second Guy Fawkes to make his appearance.
I had quite forgotten that one-time rock “music” groupie, pitifully poor MP-for-5-minutes, and hard-core drug abuser, Louise Mensch, even existed, but there she still sits on Twitter, with her 269,000 “followers”, still trumpeting the same kind of Jewish/Israel/NWO propaganda as she has for a decade or more. She herself admitted that her hard drug abuse “messed with her brain“. Her exact words were “My mind is messed up after taking hard drugs.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Mensch.
Follower numbers on Twitter mean little, of course. Louise Mensch may have 269,000 Twitter “followers” (on paper), but that tweet I featured above, for example, tweeted more than a day ago, has only been seen by 304 people (as at present time of writing), only been “liked” by 14 people, and only been retweeted by 1 person. Not one hundred thousand, not one thousand, but just one individual.
Actually, looking even at the most-seen tweets of Louise Mensch, which have been seen by several thousand people (because she tends to tag in well-known or famous people such as Elon Musk, Biden etc), the number of “likes” and retweets is small, often a mere handful.
Even her Jew husband got rid of her in the end. I have no idea how much it cost him in alimony but whatever it was, I have no doubt that it was cheap at the price.
Something I had not seen before today. Rather underwhelming. Above all, the activities of our intelligence, counter-intelligence, and security people rather miss the main point— the principal dangers to the UK come not from North Korean missiles, Chinese or Russian spies etc, but from internal decadence and events. Mass immigration. Births to non-whites with UK residency and/or nationality. The infiltration into politics, law, the msm and, indeed, security and intelligence agencies by Jews and/or Israeli agents. The decadence promoted by TV and other msm, particularly the BBC. The general decadence of British society.
Indeed, it could well be said that the UK is now little more than a colony of the USA anyway— the one-sided extradition treaty, the American bases on UK soil (often nominally “RAF bases”), the huge influence of American-funded (and often staffed) “think-tanks” such as the IEA, the de facto US control or power of veto of the UK “independent” nuclear deterrent, and so on.
Well, I have rarely been accused of being a “libertarian”, but I agree wholeheartedly with all of those demands!

I loved your sarcastic comment about that horrible woman called Louise Mensch and her husband. As my wife says “Fancy being married to that!” (LOL)
Incidentally, last Sunday was the hottest day in the last 65 years in Buenos Aires with 43.5 degrees! 🥵 🥵 🥵
Sounds unbearable (the BA temp., not Louise Mensch…that goes without saying).
Here, it is cool, though above freezing even at night now.

Have you heard of this crazy project? I could not believe it! That f… lunatic of Churchill must have drunk too much that day! No wonder the Americans told him “Forget about it!”
Somewhere in the back of my mind.
I think it was just a speculative contingency plan, as staff colleges and groups put together all the time.
Obviously untenable, unless the Western powers were ready to use their new atomic bombs on the Soviet Union. Even in 1945, Soviet forces were far stronger in Central Europe than the Western armies, in numbers at least.
The article shows that the British General Staff told him (in a very polite fashion I am sure) that the plan was ridiculous and bound to end badly. On the other hand, the Americans (quite rightly) wanted the finish the war against Japan; therefore, the whole thing was a stupid idea.
PS: Let’s not forget that the US government was full of fanatical Communists, many of them Jews, and never would have supported an attack on the Soviet Union. I really think that Churchill was losing his marbles…
As a strategist, Churchill was NBG (no bloody good). First World War— Gallipoli. Second World War— Norway 1940, then he wanted to invade France in 1943 or 1944 from the Mediterranean side, by landings on the Cote d’Azur or near Marseilles. In fact the whole subsequent Italian campaign was a failure, despite it resulting in the toppling of Mussolini. No Allied forces got as far as Austria until after the German surrender. Various other examples show Churchill’s lack of competence in grand strategy.
Hello Ian! Churchill was not only useless as a strategist but he also was an obnoxious bully who could not stand any opposition to his whims. I remember reading about his disgraceful and vindictive attitude towards that excellent soldier called Archibald Wavell who dare to criticize him for his idiotic order to send troops to Greece when he was about to wipe out the Italians in Libia.
Yes, Wavell was sacked despite also having prepared a good defence to prevent German advance to Alexandria (and thence Cairo and the Suez Canal).
As you say, Greece was another of Churchill’s several huge strategic blunders.
Interesting to see that all of Wavell’s daughters married military men.
