Well, this week brings me another victory over political journalist John Rentoul. He scored 4/10, but I trumped that with 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 7, and 9, and thought at first that I had got question 1 right, only to discover shortly afterwards that I had selected the wrong group of 17thC activists, dissenters or dissidents. So 6/10 it is this week.
Reminiscent of the Tarkovsky film, Stalker:
In the well-known words of Marx, “first time— tragedy, second time— farce” and, while it seems wrong to call an event as bloody and terrible as Bakhmut/Artyomovsk “farcical”, one has to compare it to Stalingrad, which at least was genuinely strategic. War is hell, and is often not even logical.
Looking beyond the Bakhmut/Artyomovsk situation, we see that the Kiev regime has a problem of recruitment to its armed forces, made worse by the fact that about 20% of the Ukraine population has fled beyond the borders, and that includes many families with teenage children who will now not be conscripted.
If (I do not know) Russia is recruiting and training new “levies”, then it may be that, after the losses suffered by the Kiev-regime forces recently, the Russian armed forces may be able to advance steadily for the first time in quite a while.
As to arms and ammunition, the NWO/ZOG supplies to the Kiev regime are enormous but possibly (I do not know) inadequate as compared to the usage and/or attritional rate. We shall see.
Not sure what Labour thinks that it is achieving by these attacks on Indian money-juggler Sunak. After all, Labour has for some time been far far ahead in the opinion polls, the present Sunak government seems headless at times (as did its predecessors), and people generally know that Sunak is, firstly, very very wealthy and, secondly, non-white (both of which tend to make him an unpopular PM). So why make these absurd “sex crime” attacks on him?
What makes the absurd attacks even more absurd is that there is no shred of evidence that Sunak himself is sympathetic to any form of child abuse or other sex offence(s), let alone any evidence that he himself is some kind of sex criminal. So why do it?
It may be that Starmer has tripped over his own shoelaces here.
Good question. Access to clean water is a problem in the world, but is mainly caused by aspects of poor government in Africa and elsewhere.
As to WaterAid, I can remember it running ads about 40 years ago. I know nothing against it.
I see that its income has risen from £1M in 1987 (it was founded in 1981) to £113M (as of 2019): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WaterAid.
As with other problems in the world, what is often lacking is not just money but intelligent and white European government.
Meanwhile, in the UK…
Let’s hope not, looking at the heir apparent and the rest.
After my wrongful (and indeed actually unlawful) disbarment in 2016 (see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/), I was invited not only to speak to several members of the msm Press (a Daily Mail slug even came to my door) but also to talk on, or be interviewed on, various online “radio stations”. I declined all, mainly because I doubted that my contribution would have much effect on the “big scheme of things”. I believe that Radio Albion was one of those.
The present repression, driven entirely by the fanatical Jew-Zionist element, is destroying what little free speech and freedom of expression still exists in this country.
Essex Police, the same Toytown cops who wasted a day of my time back in 2017: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/
“This is the bizarre moment police stormed a couple’s pub and seized their golliwog dolls – saying the toys were a suspected ‘hate crime‘.
Benice Ryley, 61, was quizzed by six officers after police received an anonymous complaint about The White Hart Inn in Grays, Essex.
She and husband Chris, 64, who is currently abroad, had displayed their collection of 15 dolls after receiving them as gifts from customers over the years.
On Tuesday, Essex Police raided the pub and confiscated the dolls, saying they were investigating a ‘hate crime’. They also took a book about the history of golliwogs.
Branding the incident a ‘waste of taxpayers’ money’, she continued: ‘When the police officers came, I pointed to the dolls and said they haven’t done anything.
‘The gollies all went quietly – none of them resisted arrest at all. I think the racist people are the ones who complain – it’s their problem, not us.
Mrs Ryley is demanding the dolls are immediately returned and has vowed to put them back behind the bar.
She fumed: ‘It is unreal – we haven’t broken the law and there is no legal stuff that says I can’t display them. It’s just silly.’
A spokesman for Essex Police said: ‘We are investigating an allegation of hate crime in Grays reported to us on 24 February.“
So who made the anonymous and timewasting complaint? A spiteful golliwog? Or one of “the usual suspects”, as in my case of 2017? We do not know.
Incidentally, look at the comments of the Daily Mail online readers. Others have voted about 12,000 against the police action for every half-dozen in favour.
Stop the invaders coming here, and remove those already here.
Ha. “I’m lovin’ it!“
I looked up that weird young or young-ish woman. A failed journalist or, rather, online scribbler, from Canada (what is wrong with Canada?), and who cannot keep her tendentious and ignorant views out of even her Linked-In profile. Sacked a month ago from her most recent job (at “Global News”, which I think is linked loosely to the BBC’s commercial arm).
Probably unemployable as a journalist, looking at her near-hysteria.
One of her other tweets said “You’re supposed to have the right to freedom of opinion. But what if misinformation and disinformation is making that right hard to actually enjoy?” She simply misses the point. “Freedom of opinion” is self-standing. It does not exist simply so that she can “enjoy” it…
I urge anyone with a Twitter account (I do not have one— a pack of Jews conspired to have me expelled in 2018 and I now see little point in returning) to follow tweeter “@Nature_and_Race”.
More tweets seen
…and on Twitter.
The compassionate face of elite soldiering— I like that. The bearded man, though, introduced himself to the remarkably resilient old lady not as a soldier but as “a correspondent…from Russia.”
Well worth listening to.
First, the whole crazy finance-capitalist system of speculation going haywire, then the “Covid” “panicdemic”/”scamdemic”, then the economic sanctions against Russia, and now the unwarranted and almost unlimited support for the Jewish-Zionist regime in Kiev. The whole house of cards of the Western world is quite likely not far from collapse.
Maybe the SVR is not as incompetent as I had surmised. On the other hand, the NWO/ZOG gameplan re. Russian and its “near-abroad” has been obvious for years. I have been blogging and, before 2018, tweeting about it for a decade or so. In fact, I was aware of the overall strategy as long ago as 1990, when the Soviet Union was still officially still in existence.

‘Song of the Cossacks’ a BBC drama based on the betrayal by the British and US military leaders of the White Russians.
Nicholas Tolstoy’s book ‘The Victims of Yalta’ is the best way to learn about this horrific and shameful piece of our history. (Video only available for a couple more days)

Thank you very much!
Ian; Have you noticed that, apparently, there are no more “Yellow Vests”? How sad that that great national movement did not have a political leadership! I think that is a typically French problem, lots of guts but not much brainpower.
I blogged about the Yellow Vests at the time.
In fact, it is also a systemic problem with populist movements. They tend to be, by their very nature, devoid of both leadership and especially ideology. They arise quickly out of a single issue or a few connected issues, flaring up suddenly like a grass fire, but dying down equally quickly.
I remember one like that in 1975, when I was talking (aged 18) with an old officer about possibly joining the Army as an officer myself. He mentioned the then quite recent general strike in Northern Ireland, I think 1974, which was headed by a young trade unionist (Loyalist) who had been catapulted into prominence by events. However, after that brief period, the young activist sank back into obscurity, at least outside Northern Ireland.
I always remember that chat, because the officer had in his office an oil painting of a then-typical scene from Belfast— a raid by soldiers on a terraced house in a back street (presumably meant to be the home of an IRA member).
That young Australian rescuing the sheep trapped in the barbed wire was so moving to watch. Wonderful bloke (as the Australians say). BTW. Why the f… do they have to put barbed wired in remote country areas?
I think that farmers find barbed wire convenient and inexpensive (btw, animals can get trapped in ordinary wire as well).
Animals kept in, poachers and other trespassers kept out (in theory).
“Because of the risk of injuries, in 2010 Norway prohibited making new fences with barbed wire for limiting migration of animals. Electric fences are used instead.” [Wikipedia].
Special forces such as the SAS practise and train how to overcome or get through various sharp wires of that sort.
I agree, though, that wooden fences would be better environmentally.
