The cruel harrying of the sick and disabled has been one of the worst aspects of the “Conservative” governments of the past 13 years, though in fact it started under Labour, especially under the government of that (supposed) “great humanitarian” Gordon Brown.
“A wealthy Nigerian politician, his wife and a medical ‘middleman’ were today all found guilty of an organ-harvesting plot to traffick a penniless market trader to the UK to harvest his kidney in a NHS hospital.”
It was not so long ago that anyone talking about such matters was labelled “conspiracy theorist”…
If one has had a dream, perhaps a rather bad dream, and then wakes up still thinking about it or affected by it, that affect or, indeed, effect, dissipates quickly. One realizes that —quite apart from having been merely a dream— it is now finished and gone; in the past.
Now, what about things that have happened to us in the course of life? However important they may have been to us, however unpleasant perhaps, that those events were, they too lie in the past now. They have no more reality, no more present reality, than those bad dreams, except in two respects: firstly, that those “real world” events actually happened (objectively) and, secondly, they may still play on our minds, or are at least remembered (i.e. had and/or have also subjective reality).
It is the remembrance of the “real world” events that affects us, but both dreams and “real world” events have the obvious equivalence that, as we look back on them, they are in the past. We feel obliged to honour the “real world” events by recalling them. However, that sense of obligation might be said to lie “not in our stars but in ourselves“.
The sense of remembrance-connection to real world events is a silver thread which binds us to them via the laws of Karma, yet it is postulated that those laws operate whether we recall anything (in one life or a series of lives), or not.
In terms of our lives as lived on any particular day, events of the past, whether trivial, important at the time, or even shocking, are as insubstantial as those bad dreams. “We are such stuff as dreams are made on“, if you like.
No conclusion; just a few “thoughts out of season”.

A symptom, indeed one personification, of a sick society.
Otherwise known as drunk, and drug abuser, Nigella Lawson.
Jew extremists are a menace everywhere in the world, but especially in USA, UK, Australia, France, and Germany.
The only reason why the UK and France are not living under complete Jewish/Zionist tyranny is because the actual numbers of Jews and part-Jews, in proportion to the non-Jews, is small— in the UK, less than half of one percent.
The people, without a leader, without a vanguard party, are disorganized and, therefore, helpless.
In the UK, there is no such vanguard party, not even a germinal one.
We tend to think, at least many people tend to think, that civilization and culture are best-described as a smooth upward spiral or curve, whereas a staggered spiral is more accurate: a period of growth and improvement often followed by a decline, or even a catastrophic fall, before positive evolution can continue.
“Two steps forward, one step back“, if you like.
Incredible. See my blog from yesterday for more.
A reference to the Grenfell Tower fire some years ago, after which “Jack Monroe” wrote a pack of lies saying that she went to the scene (60 miles from her home in Essex; she does not drive, either, which in view of her alleged and partly-admitted booze/drug consumption is just as well), and was “waved through” the security cordon by police (who must have known what a huge “celebrity” she was, with her reconstituted tinned pasta —mixed with sardines and curry powder— “food”…), after which she used the plans of the building (how? from where?) to somehow “organize” the scene.
Does any thinking person really believe that any of that was true?
“Jack Monroe” keywords: “fraud”, “conwoman”, “grifter”, “fake”. Among others.
What astounds me, and others, is firstly the sheer relentless and wicked gall of “Jack Monroe”, but then also, maybe more, the wilful gullibility of quite many people who —perhaps desperately— want to believe in something or someone, anything, anyone.
482 utter mugs are still (as of today) sending money to “Jack Monroe” via Patreon, several thousand pounds in total every month.
The Wikipedia entry is rather out of date. It speaks of Anita Roddick [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anita_Roddick], the superficially principled “entrepreneuse” (serving “both God and Mammon“?) who died about 16 years ago, in 2007, as if still alive.
More or less true, but to complain about unfairness like that sits badly with me. There is something pathetic about it. Take charge, take power, and order the world the right way…
They never built a civilization, or any culture worthy of the name, and they are unable to maintain the culture and civilization white Europeans have built or, in most cases, even to live in it without being a danger, nuisance or, at the very least, a backward drag.
“Black women become fat because white women (and men) are ‘racist’“…
Because “Dr.” Louise Raw has little else in her life except trying to “deplatform” those with social-national (or even conservative-national) views. In socio-political terms, a near-loony.
Maybe, if the USA is stupid enough to launch or provoke a war with Russia, that will be the way to rebuild North America, eliminating unwanted elements at the same time.
I have blogged about this already, both yesterday and previously.
East European gypsies (again), not “Bulgarians” (except in terms of their passports). Why should (real) Bulgarians be tarred with that brush?
The basically post-1945 world order, or international order (UN, World Bank, IMF, NATO, international banking system, decolonization etc), now faces collapse. It may be that a terrible war between NATO (really, the NWO) and Russia will destroy it completely (whatever the notional direct result of that war).
I keep seeing tweets (etc) about how the Russian Army is so inefficient that the NATO armies could easily rout it. Maybe, maybe not. Russia has not committed more than a fraction (exactly how much is uncertain) to Ukraine and, within Ukraine, to Bakhmut/Artyomovsk. Also, the NATO armies have also been shown to have their flaws, looking at, eg, Afghanistan.
I wonder what would really happen if the NATO armies were ever to try to emulate Napoleon and Hitler in invading Russia (something which, in any case, is rendered effectively impossible by reason of Russia’s nuclear deterrent).
Armies such as the Italian, Spanish, Dutch etc, probably the Germans too, are of little real use, having had little recent combat experience.
Even the US and UK armies are now, man for man (and 10%+ of those armies’ troops are now female), probably not very effective. The USA relies on massive force, itself based on advanced technology, air power, and huge numbers, as much as anything.
As said, the Russian nuclear deterrent makes any direct conventional war between Russia and NATO unlikely except as a brief prelude before a nuclear exchange (tactical, but then strategic, if not immediately strategic). Even without that, Russia cannot be conquered. It is too big, and has too large and nationalistic a population. The Chinese might, in theory, try it one day, but I suspect that their ambition would only encompass the former Soviet Far East, perhaps Eastern Siberia, perhaps (less likely) Western Siberia too. Not European Russia.
The above facts indicate to me that the Russians will now be placing most of their defensive eggs in one basket— the nuclear basket.
Other possibilities, less direct, would include bio-weapons and something even more oblique, namely political weaponization.
If Trump, or another “America-Firster”, becomes President after next year’s 2024 election, then Zelensky’s ricebowl may be taken away. Without the huge flow of money, arms, ammunition, and other aid, the Kiev regime would be unable to keep fighting.
Already, there is probably a popular majority in both US and UK against the stoking of the Ukraine war, but that is not reflected either in the System political milieux of either country (or in France or Germany), not reflected in the System msm, nor even on Twitter, the home of the “me too” non-thinkers, and heavily influenced by the Jewish lobby, which of course even more heavily influences and/or controls the msm.
“It is not the Germany of the decade that followed the war— broken, dejected and bowed down with a sense of apprehension and impotence. It is now full of hope and confidence. One man has accomplished this miracle. The old trust him, the young idolize him. It is not the admiration accorded to a popular leader. It is the worship of a national hero who has saved his country from utter despondence and degradation. I have never met a happier people.”
[former British Prime Minister, David Lloyd George, talking about his visit to National Socialist Germany in the 1930s, and referring to Hitler].
Ha ha! The con-woman, “Jack Monroe”, now spinning a line obviously designed by her to reel in more naive and trusting mugs. Muddying the water, too.
She has been doing that, in various ways, for over a decade, has made a very good living from it, and large numbers of utter mugs (482 as of today) are still sending her money every month; thousands of pounds monthly in total.
Exactly. I think that, probably, tweeter “@Kelly_Jackson88” has never met a really and constantly untruthful and bad person. They are fairly rare, but they do exist. Some of that sort just do not stop; they just keep on coming until they are stopped. I mean stopped.
…and there are still idiots aplenty on Twitter who still believe the whole “Jack Monroe” farrago, though “celebrities” such as Jay Rayner and Nigella Lawson, the msm generally, and some charities, i.e. all those who made “Jack Monroe” into a near-“celebrity” in the first place, years ago, have pretty much shown her the cold shoulder now that she has become “mad, bad, and dangerous to know“.
Incidentally, I see a number of Twitter accounts defending her today, but they are mostly accounts using pseudonyms, with 1 or 2 or a few “followers”. In other words, probably “Jack Monroe” herself.
Tweeter “@lookinupatstars” is evidently another one who has views entirely uninformed by facts. Whatever one may think of Jamie Oliver (and I am no fan, that’s for sure), he is at least a genuine chef [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Oliver], whereas the creations of “Jack Monroe”, photographed by her and others, and shown online, look, quite often, like a dog’s dinner; in fact, some of them make me feel sick just looking at them.
“Jack Monroe” has become increasingly bizarre over the past decade, and her claims have become —increasingly?— so impossible to believe that it has occurred to me several times that she tries to “push the envelope” further and wilder just to see whether her (often mentally-unwell) fans will actually swallow her lies and fantasies. Many still do, sadly. Mad.
Despite the scandal(s), “Jack Monroe” still pops up at pseudo-socialist or “social activism” jamborees, occasionally:
Of the dozens of persons featured (about 60), I have only heard of a few: the “Bootstrap Cook” herself, John Sentamu (the black one-time Archbishop of York), Jolyon Maugham (the “controversial” barrister, political activist, and fox-killer) and Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, the anti-white pseudo-journalist. Oh, and I have heard the name Brian Eno, but will have to look up who or what he is or was [ah…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Eno]. (I thought that he was some kind of musician; well, now I know).
“Jack Monroe” stands out by virtue of her sheer “dodginess”, even standing alongside the likes of Yasmin Alibhai-Brown and Jolyon Maugham. They at least do more or less “what it says on the tin“.

I can only hope that, if that demented old guy ever tries to launch a nuclear strike, some hero will sacrifice himself by pumping a couple of rounds into wherever will do the most damage, and thus save the world, including the USA.
In the end, there will only be one way to deal with this whole situation, but I have no need to spell it out. Everyone that matters already knows it, in their hearts.
The same phenomenon is seen in the UK. Report something to the police (I mean a real but “minor” crime, not a murder or a rude word said about a Jew) and nothing happens. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Black hole.
Look at the sentences given out for most things. Very lenient in most cases of “real” crime.
Something in the background is working to destroy normal society. Sinister.
Absolutely stupid. For one thing, many of the worst trolls use pseudonyms either exclusively or alongside their “real” social media accounts.
The poll does show how most of the “sheeple” want to be subjects of a (however fake) “caring/sharing” police state, at heart. I suppose that that came out during the “panicdemic”.
If the present Government were both willing and able to stop not only the cross-Channel migration-invasion but also general and continuing mass immigration, that would be a game-changer. However, since all System parties are supportive of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, that is very unlikely to happen.
Having said that, if the cross-Channel invasion on its own could be halted, so that there were no longer picture and clips of film showing invaders disembarking from boats, that might be enough to convince many voters to vote Con rather than Lab. Maybe.
If that were to happen, Poland must be suspended from NATO before a third major European (and perhaps world) war is triggered. Poland was the trigger for WW2. Most people do not want WW3. If the Polish leadership wants their country to become a devastated and, this time, also irradiated wasteland, that is their problem, but do not expect us, of Western and Central Europe, to back you up (and receive a horde of Russian nuclear missiles on our heads too).
Some people must have been reading my blog! Vive la France!
As of today, 482 utter mugs are still sending “Jack Monroe” a total of several thousand pounds, perhaps many thousands, via Patreon. She laughs at them, spends their donations like a drunken sailor, then pops up here and there pretending that she knows all about “poverty” and survival on little money. A complete fraud.
Thinking strategically, China and Russia together stack up fairly well against the USA. Both strategic nuclear powers, both with large armed forces, both with large populations (in China’s case, huge), both with geographically large state territories, both economically strong in different ways.
Were there to be a nuclear war involving all three (and leaving aside what might be left of this world if that were to happen), I would bet on a recovery in both China and Russia long before any such in the USA. As Hitler said (simplistically but truthfully all the same) the USA is “half-judaized and half-negrified“.
The aftermath of any large-scale devastation in the USA would be social collapse and social/racial war. That happened after Hurricane Katrina, a localized problem. How much more then after a nuclear attack?
I have to admit that I find modern China fascinating —from a distance— though I have never been there (I have been to Hong Kong and Macau, but never to mainland China).
Good to know that cultural institutions are being maintained and rebuilt.
Interesting. I have blogged a few times about the day in 1994 or 1995 (I think 1995) when I visited the partly-privatized but still heavily-guarded Porton Down biolab campus in Wiltshire, UK, with the then Ukrainian Ambassador to the UK, a trained scientist who was later both a Presidential candidate and director of a biochemistry and biosecurity institute in Ukraine [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serhiy_Komisarenko].
Well, OK, but that old woman can express her views freely on the streets of (?) Moscow, and have them broadcast without repercussions. If she had been in Kiev, and had opposed the regime of the corrupt Jew Zelensky, she would probably, almost certainly, have been arrested; the interview would certainly not be broadcast or allowed to be put on social media. Everyone involved would be arrested.
So who is “brainwashed“? The Western msm is more or less brainwashing people in the UK, USA etc, though many are “thinking for themselves” and not supporting the war or the Kiev regime.
The Twitterati were all so shocked to find that there was a majority in favour of Brexit (meaning,mainly, in favour of stopping immigration), and that America voted Trump in 2016.
As I blogged yesterday, Jeremy Hunt seems to have a political cloth ear.
Goodwin’s tweet about “1950s” is not quite right though. “1940s” would be better. It is a linguistic point. The 1950s were when Britain began to exit from the terrible privation of the unnecessary war against the German Reich. The poverty of Britain was actually worse in the decade (and especially the 5 years) after the end of the war than it had been during that misconceived war. The decline in living standards during the war itself lurched lower in 1946, 1947 and did not improve, substantially, until about 1954 or 1955. The last remnants of WW2 rationing ended in 1955.
Incidentally, it is interesting to note that many poorer Brits actually had a better diet during WW2 rationing than they had had in the prewar 1930s.
Some of the (pro-immigration) replies to Goodwin’s tweet are unintentionally hilarious: idiots saying that the UK “needs” immigrants, that the UK is not “full” (despite housing covering more of our green fields daily), and one pro-invasion tweeter (one of the most vituperative) who lives on the Costa Tropical in Spain!
“How has this been allowed to happen? Early last year, the BBC’s music review recommended an extraordinary restructure. Alan Davey, the recently departed controller of BBC Radio 3 and the Proms, ceased to have direct responsibility for the classical ensembles that are now under the control of former head of rock and pop Lorna Clarke, while [Simon] Webb, the former director of the BBC Philharmonic, is the new head of orchestras and choirs in England.
The BBC’s timing is as calculated as its strategy is callous: ensembles struggling to recover from the pandemic, exhausted from keeping the show on the road throughout, three of the ensembles without a permanent director and all contractually gagged. There is not one single champion for classical music left at the BBC in any position of power or influence. Herod has been left minding the creche.
I no longer know if the BBC is a public service broadcaster; I don’t recognise it any more, or its values. If it no longer exists to do that which others cannot or will not, then what is it for? After 23 years of constant change, the ensembles of the BBC have never been more agile, flexible or willing to adapt, and they represent tremendous value for money in the grand scheme of the BBC’s budget and our licence-fee payment.
The role of cultural patron is not optional, and the responsibilities as custodian of music ensembles do not give the BBC permission to dispose of and dismantle them without serious public discussion, not to mention honest, transparent internal debate. The values and behaviour of what we are told repeatedly is “our BBC” must matter to all of us as much as the content.”
[Paul Hughes, in the Guardian]
Apart from the actual absurdity of having blacks and merely business-trained persons in positions of power in the cultural sphere, this damage goes right back to the 1990s, to John Birt [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Birt,_Baron_Birt] and Greg Dyke [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Dyke]. Those two, who knew and worked with each other, both had poor educational and —initial— work backgrounds, yet were allowed to take leading positions in British television and radio.
“Ilya Yefimovich Repin (Russian: (pre-1918: Илья Ефимовичъ Рѣпинъ) Илья Ефимович Репин, pronounced [ˈrʲepʲɪn];[a] 5 August [O.S. 24 July] 1844 – 29 September 1930) was a Russian painter.[b] He became one of the most renowned artists in Russia in the 19th century.
If Poland fights against Russia in 2023, that would trigger a Russian response which might mean that there will be no Poland, and certainly no Warsaw, by 2024. In fact, Poland being now a member of NATO, it might just trigger WW3.
The SNP may have had its day in the sun, but it could reinvent itself if it became more social-national, opposed mass immigration and migration-invasion, binned non-whites/non-Brits such as Humza Yousaf as candidates and office-holders, and announced a policy of leaving NATO and closing down all RAF/USAF bases, as well as submarine bases, while asking Russia for closer relations. None of that will happen, of course.
All this stuff, dozens of things included, is part of the gradual approach of something which will go well beyond the traditional “police state”.
Oh yes. I recall once running late at Gatwick, only to be told by some simpleton in uniform to remove my shoes! I only caught my plane because it was delayed by engine trouble.
Even worse are the self-important armed police, strutting around with their Heckler & Koch MP5s or other weapons. So, if there are suspected terrorists, will they just open up with automatic weapons in a crowded terminal? I hope not. They are basically there “for show”.
Only just beat political journalist John Rentoul this week. He scored “5 and a half“, he says, while I managed 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 4, 7, and 10. In fact, I had read about no.7 a while ago but forgot about it, and also should really have guessed no.10.
The destruction of beauty, and the creeping growth of housing
Earlier this week, I blogged about the horrible destruction of trees in Armada Way, Plymouth by a corrupt local council. Now, while reading a report about the recent suicide of a headmistress of a school attended by me 60 years ago, I saw something equally unpleasant about Emmer Green, just north of Reading.
Northwest and north of Reading, across the Thames, there are two basically suburban areas abutting the open woods and fields of Oxfordshire: Caversham Heights (where I lived at times as a child) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caversham_Heights], and Emmer Green [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmer_Green]. About two or three miles of more or less open country separates the two. Within that couple of miles there was, inter alia, a golf course, Reading Golf Club, which in the 1960s and 1970s was the only golf course on that side of the Thames and that close to Reading.
I myself was a junior member of Reading Golf Club for a year or so around 1972, when I was 15-16. My golfing equipment was old and rudimentary, given to me by family friends, I think: one or two woods (drivers), an oddly-short no.3 iron, an ancient and wood-shafted mashie niblick (no.7 iron)[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsolete_golf_clubs#20th_century_wood-shafted_irons], and a putter (also wood-shafted). Out of date even then.
That golf course was rather beautiful, I thought, with plenty of majestic trees framing the fairways of the 18 holes, and even a very small valley, from which one drove from the tee on one side to the hole on the other. A very unusual par as well— 2 par, if I recall aright.
That hole must have been some kind of anomaly, because 3-par is the lowest par usually designated: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Par_(score). Maybe I just remembered wrongly, and it was 3-par; no matter.
I managed (by luck, really) to get a hole-in-one on that, though it hardly counts, arguably, not being a more typical sort of hole.
Be that as it may, I was discomfited to read yesterday that not only has that golf course now closed (and been subsumed, as a club, into a new golf club with a course a few miles away) but the area of the old course has been designated for housing— 223 new houses. There is strong local opposition from nearby residents calling their protest group Keep Emmer Green: https://www.keepemmergreen.org/.
We see this all the time now, especially in southern England: “infilling” of green areas around or in towns and cities, usually so that housing can be built for profit. Mass immigration, births to existing UK residents, the collapse of the traditional family. Overall result— pressure to build more housing.
In the end, will there actually be an England worth saving or defending? A question members of the armed forces, and the intelligence and security services, might pose to themselves in a lucid moment.
Incidentally, since the early 1970s, I have rarely played golf, and own no golf clubs (both my younger brothers are keen players, though).
Whatever the logical reasons behind the policy, Jeremy Hunt must have a political cloth ear to introduce such a measure at such a time.
“Covid” “panicdemic” nonsense, migration-invasion nonsense (fake “refugees” put up in hotels etc), general “Ukraine” nonsense (arms, ammunition, medical supplies, and hard cash, all being funnelled to the corrupt and dictatorial regime of the Jew Zelensky). Etc.
Prediction of the result of a general election not due to be held for possibly 20 months is a fool’s game, of course, but at present it certainly looks like a shoo-in for Labour, and most policy announced by the “Conservatives” seems to play into Labour’s hands despite Labour itself being so lacklustre.
Seems to be useful public health advice. I myself have no liver problem, but am posting those tweets as a general warning to anyone who, or who knows someone who, is in that situation.
Better pay than being “His Excellency” the Ambassador to [somewhere]. While a few British ambassadors get nearly £150,000, most are below £100,000, and some receive as little as £60,000, though they do get reasonably-nice, sometimes very nice, ambassadorial residences, and there are a number of perks. Also, diplomatic immunity. I should have appreciated that a few times myself, when working overseas. Very convenient.
I believe that Murray was appointed to Tashkent (Uzbekistan) in 2002.
Murray seems to be someone highly principled (according to his own lights), and a bit awkward, like one or two Quakers I encountered several decades ago. The Diplomatic Service was almost certainly the wrong career for him.
God… and most of those people have so little anyway, and amid such wealth. The USA in some ways is “the Great Satan“, as the Islamic crazies sometimes claim. Not in every way, but in some. I myself have experienced a little of both the more comfortable and less comfortable sides of American life. The USA needs radical reform.
So much for “Biden the great humanitarian”. Not that he has invented such hypocrisy— Clinton was there first.
(that’s cash; other programmes exist in parallel, such as Medicare, Medicaid etc).
Of course, tweeting (or blogging, or vlogging, or writing articles, or even launching doomed public law claims) does not frighten MPs. What does? Well, I am not going to say anything, but think back over the past decade…
True. Brutal. However, it seems that some fighters on both sides might be termed “cannon-fodder“. In fact, we in the West, subjected to the usual msm lies and spin, are not getting the true measure of the Ukrainian/Kiev-regime losses. Massive.
There must be room for compassion and active help for the animals in war zones. None of them volunteered for this.

Of course, over the years quite a few Jews have actually been exposed and/or arrested for attacking Jewish graveyards, with the aim of inciting other Jews (via newspaper reports) to get excited about “antisemitism”, as well as the aim of goading the authorities to crack down on so-called “far right” (social-national) people or parties and groups, as well as repressing freedom of expression.
I have never understood why any social-national people would attack Jewish or any other graveyards. What is the aim? To kill dead Jews? Very strange.
Obviously, I agree with the 95%…
If only the UK could have that level of economic and social development.
A very sad story. It struck me more because, from age 5 to age 10 (late 1961 to early 1967, when my family moved to Sydney, Australia), I myself was a pupil at that school. The outer look of the school is just the same as it was 60 years ago, except for there now being cars parked outside in the road. I lived about a mile away. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caversham_Heights.
“Oxfam came under fire last night for issuing a bizarre ‘inclusive’ language guide to staff.
The 92-page report warns against ‘colonial’ phrases such as ‘headquarters’, suggests ‘local’ may be offensive and says ‘people’ could be patriarchal.
Workers were told ‘parent’ is often preferable to ‘mother’ or ‘father’, terms such as ‘feminine hygiene’ should be dropped, and ‘people who become pregnant’ should be used instead of ‘expectant mothers’.
Nigel Mills, Tory MP for Amber Valley, added: ‘It’s as though Oxfam are trying to take the word ‘woman’ out of the dictionary – it’s nonsense.’
And Toby Young of the Free Speech Union said it was ‘hard to take all this woke virtue-signalling seriously’ given Oxfam was censured for the way it handled reports that staff sexually exploited children after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.“
More of this now-almost-ubiquitous nonsense. When are the British people going to get angry enough to do something about it? Or are they only angry at stuff like the possibility that ignorant know-nothing Gary Lineker might be sacked from his £1M-£2M a year BBC sinecure “job”?
Never give money to Oxfam.
Amazing artistry. The scene created is very stimulating for the imagination.
In the (?) Northern English phrase, some people don’t know what day it is.
I expect that some mugs, such as tweeter “Norma Joones”, will send the fraudulent conwoman more money now…
“Jack Monroe” is just an out and out fraud. She has in fact tried this on (but referencing a number of other supposed medical conditions) over the years.
Incredibly, as of today, 481 utter mugs (up 2 on last week) aresending her a total of thousands of pounds each month via Patreon alone. So long as they continue to do that, “Jack Monroe” can ignore the fact that she is now exposed (to all but complete idiots and naifs) as a fraudster and near-fraudster (“grifter”), and also ignore the fact that her pathetic recent book bombed, together with her one-time TV career.
I suppose that she has got away with her frauds so far because they are in a legal grey area (except for the “sue Lee Anderson and Martin Daubney” crowdfunder scam, which may yet have criminal-legal consequences).
Typical Twitter. Look at that Simon Winterburn tweeter, complete with facemask! What an idiot…did he buy it from grifter “NHS doctor” and facemask seller, Julia Grace Patterson? Also, where is his Ukrainian flag?
As said, typical Twitter. Someone who actually has no knowledge of the facts, yet passionately and angrily attacking those who have presented huge amounts of direct evidence against “Jack Monroe”. I suppose that the Simon Winterburn tweeter supports “Jack Monroe” because her chosen Twitter persona (when it suits her) is “anti-Tory”, as with other notable Twitter “grifters”, among them Julia Grace Patterson, “@Supertanskiii” etc.
Just imagine— many people (at least on Twitter) see Mhairi Black as a future leader of Scotland! Clueless. Also, why are so many Scottish female politicians lesbians?

“Vladimir Putin‘s ‘martyr complex’ is so out of control there is a risk he will embolden Russia to use nuclear and chemical weapons, a think tank has warned – amid rising concerns over the Kremlin’s ‘hysteric rhetoric’.
A new report published by the US think tank Heritage Foundation has highlighted a growing risk the Russian president will ‘make one of the most fateful decisions of the century’ in the face of his faltering invasion of Ukraine.
The study, named The US and Its Allies Must Understand and Respond to Russia’s Nuclear Threats, explores the actual likelihood that Putin will turn to using weapons of mass destruction.
Russian generals are understood to have discussed the use of tactical nuclear weapons in November, but is said to be cautious about the use of long-range weapons.
However, Russia has ‘increasingly portrayed the West as an enemy and appears to now accept tactical strategic nuclear weapons as an option for deterring further escalation of combat.
The country is understood to have between 1,000 and 2,000 nuclear weapons of varying sizes.
The use of such weapons is seen by Western nations as a last resort, but the report states Russia may turn to tactical nuclear weapons ‘early in the exercise or at mid-point’.
The report outlines four situations in which Putin would turn to nuclear weapons; pre-empting an attack on Russia; use against Russia; a threat, such as a cyberattack on Russia’s command-and-control systems; and an existential threat to Russia from conventional or nuclear weapons.
It says: ‘Russia has failed to defeat the Ukrainian military and is now focusing on forcing the capitulation of the civilian population by attacking electricity and water supplies.
‘It is therefore plausible that Russia will not only threaten to use, but actually use, a weapon of mass destruction to target civilian resistance in Ukraine.
‘Russia is focusing on destroying Ukraine’s power infrastructure, and with the nuclear industry now producing around 60 percent of pre-war power, a Russian attack on nuclear power stations to cut off electricity and create an improvised nuclear incident is a real prospect.’
It has also warned that the use of chemical weapons against metro stations in eastern Ukraine would be ‘devastating’.
The report cites the use of chemical weapons in Syria as evidence of Russia’s willingness.
It has also highlighted Russia’s efforts to ‘weaponise refugees’ and create mass flows of people into Western countries to the point they become ‘overwhelmed’.”
The growing escalation by the NWO (NATO etc) is concerning; the flow of advanced weapons to the Kiev regime, together with ammunition, non-military aid, and cash.
If I had to guess, I should put the chance of the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine by the Russian side at about 30%, depending on how the war goes in the next few months. Any chance of Crimea being lost would make their use almost inevitable, but that raises the question of where such weapons might be used— on the battlefield, or against cities? Could Kiev be completely flattened? If so, what would be the NATO (US) response? All-out strategic response? Unlikely but not impossible. Limited but major conventional response? Maybe, but probably not. Nothing much? Possibly.
Russia would not hold back if subjected to serious or sustained Kiev-regime attack on its own unquestioned territory, eg in Central Russia.
As to a full strategic nuclear exchange between NATO and Russia in general, my view would be that that is at present no more than a 5% chance, but that is a very pessimistic assessment. Horses win at 20/1 all the time.
“‘I know I’m being sent to my death’: Ukrainian soldiers admit ‘we are just getting killed’ as they defend Bakhmut…and say Russia can already ‘taste victory’.
Ukrainian soldiers have painted a bleak picture of their on-going defence of Bakhmut, the small eastern city that has become the target of Europe’s bloodiest infantry battle since the Second World War.
Kyiv‘s soldiers have said they knew they were being sent to their deaths when they were given the orders to go to the city, and admitted they are ‘just getting killed’.
The Jews usually degrade, or even destroy, other societies over time. Now it seems that they are quite close to breaking up their own, Israeli, society, only 75 years after its foundation.
Would that, and the whole situation around that, have been seen or even conceivable in the 1980s, 1990s, even a decade ago? I think not. The West is not, mainly, being pressured by outside forces, but is falling apart internally. Maybe that is often the way of things, thinking of the Roman Empire, the gradual collapse of Sovietism etc.
Like a scene from Stalingrad in 1942/1943. War is hell.
It has been clear from the start, over a year ago, that the Americans have been feeding a large amount of direct battlefield intelligence from satellites etc to the forces of the Kiev regime. Had that not been so, the Russian forces would have had greater success in the field.
This comes close to the USA being a direct participant in the war. Madness.
The finance-capitalist system is inherently unstable, and linked in such a way that (as with an uncontrolled reaction in a nuclear power station) panic a fear creates an unstoppable or almost unstoppable momentum.
Imagine though, if a banking sector collapse internationally co-incided with a European war beyond the Ukraine borders. That could be the trigger for a social-national and pan-European upsurge across the continent, enabling the extermination of evil powers and person, and also the foundation of a new and better society in the long term.
More thoughts around Russia and Ukraine
The missing factor on the Russian side, domestically, is real determination on the part of the ordinary population. That would change if any one of two things were to happen: a direct conventional-arms attack (by Ukraine or its Western quasi-allies and backers) on any major Russian city, or a large incursion onto unambiguously Russian territory by forces of the Kiev regime (or foreign forces).
Either of those two events would probably trigger a large scale and probably (tactical-) nuclear response by the Russian leadership.
Russia values Kiev as one of the birthplaces of the Russian state [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27], and I think that the leadership will try to capture the city intact, if possible, but if the Russian leadership felt that the Russian state itself were in existential peril, their response might be to destroy Kiev rather than face extinction as a state, as a people (a collection of peoples, but Russified and Russophone), and as a distinct European/Eurasian culture.
Ha ha! I can vaguely remember David Icke reading out the football results on — was it Southern TV? Wikipedia says BBC, so maybe BBC South— sometime around 1980 or so. Not that I would have been interested anyway.
I did not hear of David Icke again until 1990 or 1991 (looking at his Wikipedia entry, maybe the latter year), when I returned one time from the USA, and a friend mentioned as an example of something or other “David Icke“, and I replied “who?” (I had forgotten the name of the young man reading out the sports news a decade before). My friend laughed and said “you must be the only person in England who has not heard of David Icke!“. At that time, he was completely unknown in America.
A few years later, September 1994, I was invited as a birthday surprise by another friend to what turned out to be David Icke speaking at the Wigmore Hall in Marylebone, London, only a short taxi ride from where I then lived in Little Venice.
A quite good and very impassioned speaker, and dressed —if I recall aright— in his famous purple tracksuit, Icke was introduced by a remarkably attractive woman (about 35-40) who said that he was something like “the greatest thinker of our time“. I found that his speech did not quite live up to that billing, but was all the same interesting. My friend also bought me, as a birthday present, a signed copy of The Robot’s Rebellion from the stall in the foyer.
Icke used to follow my Twitter account (and I think that he was only following about 100-200 other people and organizations, so he must be rather perceptive!…). That ended when a pack of Jews had me expelled from Twitter in 2018. Icke himself was (as I had predicted would happen) expelled from Twitter later (by the same or similar Jews), but is now back: https://twitter.com/davidicke.
I would not endorse everything that Icke says or has said, but much of what he says is correct, and has been proven to be, e.g. the following:
“Why do we play a part in suppressing alternative information to the official line of the Second World War? How is it right that while this fierce suppression goes on, free copies of the Spielberg film, Schindler’s List, are given to schools to indoctrinate children with the unchallenged version of events. And why do we, who say we oppose tyranny and demand freedom of speech, allow people to go to prison and be vilified, and magazines to be closed down on the spot, for suggesting another version of history.
Of course the “usual” (((usual))) influence has contaminated Wikipedia, so its “facts” in respect of anything such as Jews, the “holocaust” farrago, and the Second World War, Hitler etc, are often not true facts at all.
The apparently intermittent dementia of the US President at such a time is more than concerning. Stupidity played a large part in the unwanted (by most people) start of the two really major wars of the 20thC; will actual dementia play a part in the start of the next such war?
Ironic. The same sort of people who are forever tweeting (or spouting on (((TV))) and in the (((Press))) about how Britain fought off German invasion in the early 1940s —and leaving the argument about that aside— are usually “refugees welcome” dimwits who want the UK to be a dustbin for the whole world. At present, they are certainly succeeding. I wonder whether they will like the eventual results (to them personally, as well) of their virtue-signalling “activism”?
I have seen tweets from the usual self-describing “Left” suspects saying that even a critical interview like that should not be allowed on TV, because Patriotic Alternative (etc) are “fascists“. It just confirms the total irrelevance of Corbyn-style pseudo-socialists in the post-1989, post-socialist political space.
The British people, especially the poorer ones, are just ignored by the System, and nowhere is that more obvious than when it comes to mass immigration and migration-invasion.
…preferably with a good kicking as a not-golden farewell!
Join with Russia if the EU turns even more against Russia.
Join in amity with Russia, cut ties with the EU completely if necessary, leave NATO, chuck out US spy bases and air bases.
The EU is not, on the whole, a Europe worth saving anyway. With Russia on one side and the UK on the other, the EU states will have to come to heel eventually, and give us what we want and need.
Pensions cap removal etc
If the aim is mainly to stop doctors taking early retirement, then why not restrict the recently-announced policy to doctors?
In fact, Plymouth has a minority Conservative Party-ruled council. 25 Labour, 23 Conservative, 9 others.
The tree vandalism is appalling. I know Armada Way, which is a long and mainly traffic-free avenue connecting the central part of Plymouth to the famous Plymouth Hoe where Drake played bowls before defeating the Spanish Armada in the late 16thC.
The bit of Armada Way where I often was has thankfully been spared the axe, and is closer to the centre of the city. I often appeared at the County Court there (the building also contains the rather busy Plymouth Crown Court).
Plymouth could be a fantastic city, with its water frontage, and its rural hinterland, but somehow isn’t. It has problems of crime, drugs, drunkenness etc, and the local council is completely incompetent. I used to park at the very top of a multistorey car park quite near the court building. The Plymouth Council owned that car park. In about 6 years of parking there (about once every couple of weeks), the lift worked once, I think. Once out of 100-200 times. A small example but, I think, telling.
Plymouth Council is riddled with both freemasonry and Common Purpose, so often the nests of the mediocre. As with other councils with those characteristics, such as Birmingham, Plymouth Council is both incompetent and corrupt.
Incidentally, if anyone wonders why I always parked on the open top floor of that car park (about 10 storeys high) despite knowing that the lift would almost certainly be inoperative, well, there are a number of reasons. I like being able to park where there is always a spot, in a space almost always free of any other cars, not having to bother with other cars’ owners, people parking or leaving etc. In fact, about the only time I ever saw another car up there, it turned out to be that of a rather attractive lady barrister I knew slightly from court, Rebecca something-or-other. Secondly, I enjoyed the view. Thirdly, it is my long-held habit— I always park at the top of multi-storey car parks.
Disgraceful. Government, central and local, must step in, but it abdicated its responsibilities years ago. Buy to let and other similar forms of exploitation have to be stopped.
Sweden should have the sense to stay neutral. Such support comes close to abandoning neutrality.
As for Poland and its leadership, I can only think of Hegel, who wrote that “the lesson of history is that people do not learn the lessons of history” (may not be exact quotation, but near enough).
So the “Conservative” Party panel of Uxbridge and South Ruislip have reselected a part-Jew who was born in New York City, brought up in the USA and Belgium mainly (except when at Eton and Oxford), who did time (a few weeks) on a kibbutz in Israel, who describes himself as “Zionist“, and who has a long history of disgraceful and dishonest conduct in his personal life, as a journalist of sorts, as MP, as Cabinet minister, and finally as Prime Minister?
What am I missing? Not that he is some kind of great brain, as once was thought by easily-fooled people. As for real intellect and culture, forget it.
Still, at least it looks as if his time as MP is very limited, if the opinion polls can be believed:
Unfortunately, instead of being put up against a wall and shot, the bastard is going to make millions out of memoirs, speeches, after-dinner ramblings etc.
Interesting to see. One of the worst aspects (culturally) of the Ukraine conflict is the ghastly music (I do not know what it is called), a kind of (?) Slavonic “rap”, and played constantly by both sides. At least the “turbofolk” played during the Yugoslav/Balkan war(s) was not completely offensive to the ear.
Well, not quite as bad, anyway…
The Russian equivalent of turbofolk (I think it can be called…apologies to any musical experts reading), which I well remember from when I was in Kazakhstan (1996-1997):

The Guardian that became a cheerleader for the 2020-2021 police-state “Covid” measures: “lockdowns”, facemask nonsense, and Boris-idiot’s own contribution, the ridiculous “Rule of Six”.
Well-meaning silliness. Mikolaiv, or Nikolayev, will probably fall back under Russian control before very long; after that, I expect that Russian authorities will rebuild the city.
Incidentally, the Danish Ambassador and his government might be better advised to use their time, money, and power to prevent Denmark being further swamped by non-European savages.
I am willing to accept that the Ambassador’s own motives are probably reasonably good or charitable, but this is wrongheaded. Better to stop funnelling arms to the corrupt and vicious Jewish regime in Kiev, which merely prolongs a war Russia cannot lose.
“The deindustrialization of Germany is in full swing. Eisenwerk Erla GmbH has filed a claim to declare itself bankrupt. The reason for bankruptcy is standard for our time – energy resources have risen in price. Think about it, this Saxon metallurgical enterprise traces its history back to 1380. For 600 years it has survived the Hanseatic League, two orders of knighthood – the Teutonic and Livonian, the Reformation, the First and Second World Wars, the Cold War and the Global Economic Crisis,but didn’t survive Olaf Scholz...”

Extraordinary that someone, one Julia Mark, who works in the “well-being” field, i.e. social aspects of food and drink, more or less, should be unaware that “Bootstrap Cook”, “Jack Monroe”, has been comprehensively exposed and debunked.
Actually, the thing about Twitter is how unrepresentative it is. The majority of the Twitterati over the past decade or so have been saying that Labour would win every UK election (2010, 2015, 2017, 2019), that the British electorate would certainly vote to stay in the EU (Brexit Referendum, 2016), that Trump had no chance in 2016, and that most British people favour mass immigration. Not to mention all the “Covid” “panicdemic”/”scamdemic” nonsense (including the face mask nonsense).
Now we see the same unthinking Twitter reaction re. “Ukraine” (support for the Kiev regime of the Jew Zelensky and his cabal).
I would dare opine that, if Biden can be consigned to history, oblivion, or a care home by 2024/25, the incoming US President, if Republican, will take away Zelensky’s ricebowl. Without US arms, ammunition, and money, the Kiev regime will have to surrender or make peace on Russia’s terms, or fight on briefly with little ammunition and arms resupply.
In short, without U.S. aid, the war will probably almost stop within weeks of the non-resupply, not least because the EU states and others will follow the lead of the USA. Russian forces will then advance almost unopposed to Kiev and across all of Ukraine east of the Dnieper.
The threat of East-West nuclear war will then recede and become again unlikely, as after the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1963 (and the near-accidents of 1983 and —once— in the early 1990s).
I imagine that, if the war finishes, Zelensky will retire to his stolen offshore riches and his USD $40M house in Florida.
I have no idea whether the Republicans will actually win in 2024. I do not know enough about it all, though the demographics seem to be gradually going against the Republicans as the non-white vote increases in proportion. Still, it must be possible for Trump or another to win, and I note many “experts” in polling etc saying that it is now likely. Biden is obviously intermittently demented, and (as I understand it) has not been doing well in the domestic sphere either.
Not that I think that System or semi-System politicians such as Trump and DeSantis are talking about pulling back from support for the Zelensky regime out of pure principle; they just do not want the USA, i.e. the country they and their backers live in and own, to be the subject of a massive Russian nuclear attack. Which might happen, if things keep escalating.
…and we all know who “they” are (((them))).
Far more true than untrue, anyway.
…and Obama was awarded that prize in his first months in office. Pure propaganda.
Previous Nobel Peace Prize recipients included Woodrow Wilson (brought USA into the First World War in 1917); Edvard Benes (Czech nationalist, and later a Soviet agent of influence); Gandhi (who often spoke about peace, but whose actual legacy was tumult against the British Raj, followed by mass slaughter when Partition went wrong, and the present India-Pakistan hostility); Alexandra Kollontai (Ukrainian-Finnish revolutionary, crazed Marxist feminist, and later a Soviet diplomat); Raoul Wallenberg (interfered in matters beyond his diplomatic or other competence; spied for Jewish interests and for OSS (pre-CIA); Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi (sinister international conspirator and prime mover of the “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan” to flood Europe and other white European-race areas of the world with non-whites).
During the Presidency of “Peace Prize” winner Obama…
I doubt that sanctions hurt the ground-level Russian people much. They may cramp the international travelling lifestyles of the Russian jet-set a little, but even so not much (they can holiday in other places than London and LA).
I urge everyone with a Twitter account to follow that tweeter. One of the best tweeters at present.
Absolutely right. What I have noticed, over not even the past half-century (I am now 66) but especially the last 10 years, has been how many pseudo-“conservative” TV talking heads etc have signed up to this. Quite a few years ago, the now-defunct BBC TV Daily Politics show had a bearded Austrian “shemale” or drag artiste (not sure which) on the show (I believe it was the Austrian entry for Eurovision that year) and, for days afterwards, all the presenters and guests, led by (of all people) Andrew Neil, were fulsomely praising that person and (by implication) their own, and society’s “tolerant” attitude etc.
Rudolf Steiner never explained in detail what he meant when he said, near the end of his life (d.1925), that the time would come when society would congratulate itself on its goodness and tolerance, but would not see the evil right in front of it. Or words to that effect. I think that we are seeing that now. It goes beyond obvious sex issues of various kinds to matters such as “Covid” restrictions (the fake “caring sharing” stuff disguising a bio-security police state), and other matters as well. The “trans” nonsense is the leader of the pack, though.
It becomes more obvious daily. “Trans” nonsense, faked biosecurity threats, “15-minute cities” and other (supposedly) “green” policies (designed to restrain free movement and travel by the mass of the population), the whole anti-Russia policy matrix and propaganda (many uneducated people now believe that Ukraine is actually a better and/or more cultured country than Russia!). Etc.

Like something from The Handmaid’s Tale, especially with that sinister black-clad and black-masked militia operative (or whatever) standing guard over the unfortunates.
Frankly, that was my thought too…It applies also to some other rather entitled young-ish professionals as well (stand up, twenty-something barristers).
What can one say when a great number of the more influential people in the UK actually want more backward non-whites in the country, to add to the millions already here, and seem to think that that makes them, the “refugees welcome” idiots, occupiers of the moral high ground? The so-called “refugees” will, of course, not live anywhere near where those “anti-racists” etc live. Oh no, they live near other people’s homes, or even in them.
What can one say when large areas of the country are not policed properly, and where feral teenagers and other riff-raff are allowed to roam almost free of accountability? Where the police are noticeable by their absence. Where the silent majority suffers because corrupt and/or stupid and/or malicious politicians (at both central and local level) will not do what is necessary to contain and then eradicate the problem.
There is a kind of national death wish on the part of many. You see it on Twitter, in the msm, and elsewhere.
I was born in 1956. To my mind, the decline of the UK in world terms, which historians have placed variously as having started in 1956 itself (with Suez), or in 1945 (i.e. after the military victory over the German Reich, which victory mortally wounded all the European empires or colonial powers, and thus ensured the rise of the Soviet Union, the USA as superpower and, eventually, China, has been made permanent by the past 40-50 years of do-nothing policy.
Not that Barnett was always correct, as seen here:
“After the historian’s E.P. Thompson planned Dimbleby Lecture on the Cold War was cancelled in 1981, Barnett asked whether he (Thompson) saw any connexion between the internal nature of the Soviet empire as an oligarchic tyranny and its external policies? As a former communist he must know that the Soviet regime is of its very nature and from earliest origins a minority conspiracy that has gained and maintained power by force and trickery; that because of this inherent nature it always has been and remains terrified of independent centres of thought or power, whether within the Russian empire or beyond its present reach. It is the conjunction of such a regime, and its manifested wish to dominate others, with armed forces powerful beyond the needs of mere defence that is the engine of the present “armaments race”. Who believes that Nato and its armaments would exist if Russia had been a Western-style open society these last 60 years? The first requirement for large-scale nuclear or any other kind of disarmament is the withering away of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.“
Well, Russia today may not be an “open society” in a Western sense, but the CPSU “withered away“, more or less, over 30 years ago now, yet NATO is as active as ever.
Reverting to the main issue (the decline of Britain), we come again to the famous axiom of Dean Acheson: “Britain has lost an empire, and has not yet found a role.” Spoken in 1962.
61 years ago and, to my mind, at least equally true today.
Once Britain lost its Empire, much of its manufacturing, supported by the policy of Imperial Preference, faded away. That happened gradually from 1945 to, say, the Thatcherite 1980s. The North stopped being a powerhouse, and became a millstone round the neck of London and the south of England.
What is “the North” today? (Incidentally, my own father was born in Co. Durham). The Angel of the North (which I very much like, by the way)? The drunken or drugged “party goers” of Friday and Saturday nights? The “left-behind” cities, towns and villages? The largely-rather-poor population, many of whom are living only via State benefits and/or State pensions? The one-time mill towns now home to vast numbers of backward populations of Pakistanis and others?
The main difference between northern and southern England is economic rather than social. The south is just as decadent but has more money, in a word.
Rising to consider Britain’s “role”, what has it been since 1945, and especially in the past 40-50 years, since, say, 1989? “America’s poodle”, as someone put it during the Blair years. On its own, Britain (despite its small number of nuclear-missile submarines) is not a superpower, not really more than, at best, a regional power. In fact, France is far more powerful militarily than the UK, Germany about the same as the UK, but without any nuclear weapons.
I remember having heard, in the 1970s, economically and politically-illiterate arguments such as “the British people are better-off now than when Britain had its Empire” and “immigration did not and does not affect wages because the immigrants got or get the “union rate” for the job.“
In fact, that first argument can only be countered by citing Chou en-Lai’s reply to the question of (I think) Pat Nixon as to what he thought of the French Revolution: “it is far too early to judge”. Actually, the effects of British imperial decline and now near-decease are already becoming apparent, both in the UK and in the former colonies.
As to the second argument, the immigrants of the 1950s, 1960, and up to today may be getting the same rate as existing British workers but, over time, the rate for the job in real terms declines when the labour supply increases. You only have to look at pay (for most people) now, and what it was in the 1970s. Living standards too. Far higher in most respects in the 1970s.
Just this morning, I saw a piece in a newspaper about NHS junior doctors, by a more senior one, which made the point that, while pay for junior doctors is by no means terrible, after the first year or so, it was higher in real terms decades ago. The same is certainly true at the Bar (of which I was a member until a pack of Jews procured by unwarranted, and indeed unlawful, disbarment in 2016: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/). It is true in non-professional work, too. Many UK jobs now pay too poorly to afford the worker even basic food and shelter.
The UK economy is now a banking, service industry, also a light industrial economy. The heavy industry of yesteryear is history, and the coal mines and steel works etc have, those still in existence, become museums and educational monuments. The Angel of the North is both a monument of honour and a gravestone.
Socially, educationally, there has been a huge fall since the 1970s. All over the UK. One can quote statistics either way, but the reality stands. For me, and many of my age, who knew England during the 1970s, the difference is palpable and unmistakeable.
As a matter of fact, what I also see is that large sections of the population either support Britain’s continuing decline, or are completely apathetic to it.
On Twitter etc, and at the Westminster monkeyhouse, you see those who actually think that taking in further vast hordes of backward blacks and browns will somehow improve the country, or that to do so is a kind of 21st Century “White Man’s Burden”, a duty of some kind.
In fact, Suella Braverman (whatever one may think of her) put the killer point recently: in principle, under the laws, regulations, and realities as they actually are, there is nothing to stop literally hundreds of millions of blacks and browns (and others) coming to the UK either lawfully or unlawfully, and completely destroying, by their very presence, what is left of our society and way of life.
The “refugees welcome” dimwits and others either howled outrage when the above truth was uttered, or just sneered and dismissed it. The truth, however, remains.
I should say that the greater dishonesty comes from those who are just thinking in terms of “socialism” or “communitarianism”.
The others, who think in terms of production and consumption, and profits for the few, are equally enemies of the people, but more honestly so. The Andrew Neils. The Tom Harwoods. The Rishi Sunaks. In general, those who are unashamedly finance-capitalist. They think that increasing the UK population, destroying our countryside, creating an even more rat-race society, is the best option, because it will (they claim) “help the economy”, even if the benefits of that will go mainly to 10%, 5%, or even fewer than 1% of the population.
As for most of the British people, they are drugged (those not also literally drugged or drunk) with trash TV, trash radio, trash Press, and other trash.
There is only one way forward, which is for those who are social-national in ideology to break away as far as possible into a parallel society, ideally created in a corner or corners of the existing UK.
It is not impossible that a major war will come soon, which —if it happens— will destroy the mainstream society. If social-national people are then ready to seize the initiative, we shall be able to rise up, gather around us the main population, and exterminate the most obvious evils, while establishing the basis for a better societal future.
Ha ha! Cheered me up amid the miasmic gloom of this fast-declining country.
“Russian state media has urged Vladimir Putin to use his underwater nuclear missile to wipe Britain off the map with a 1,000ft-high radioactive tsunami if NATO troops put boots on the ground in Ukraine.
Retired Russian general Yevgeny Buzhinsky called for attacks on Britain with a Poseidon underwater missile that he said would trigger a 1,000ft radioactive tidal wave.
Lt-Gen Buzhinsky, chairman of the Russian Centre for Policy Research, said Britain ‘will definitely not exist’ if Russia unleashed the wrath of the nuclear missile.
Buzhinsky also threatened the UK with an attack by the 14-storey high Sarmat 2, Russia‘s largest nuclear missile, which he claimed would destroy the country.“
The West must pull back from the Ukraine conflict. The so-called “leaders” such as Sunak cannot play (almost literally) Russian roulette with the lives and futures of the British people.
All that, too.

I can still remember little William Hague proclaiming, as UK Foreign Secretary in 2012, that “Assad will be gone in no more than a week“, if I recall aright. Eleven years ago.
Hard to know what exactly is happening without more context. Still, seems that the Russian (Wagner Group) forces are pressing forward.
The problem with focussing on a relatively small battle area which is but part of a very large conflict is that you lose sight of the bigger picture.
I was amused to hear (either on BBC TV News or Sky News), the correspondent in Ukraine saying something such as “military analysts are unsure whether it is a good idea for Ukraine to defend Bakhmut to the end, but President Zelensky says that it is essential.“
Well, after all, if a corrupt Jew ex-comedian says it, it must be right…
