Well, a modest 5/10 this week, but I still managed to beat political journalist John Rentoul, who scored 4/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8.
From the newspapers
“…he thinks schools, universities and employers should actively discriminate against white applicants, purely because of their skin colour and their inherited guilt. Never mind that, say, a little girl born in the 21st century can hardly be blamed for the history of slavery. For Kendi, the mere fact of her genetic heritage is enough to damn her.
The second example is even more shocking. This is a chart produced in 2020 by the National Museum of African American History and Culture — part of the Smithsonian Institution, probably the most prestigious U.S. educational body of all.
The chart gives examples of ‘whiteness’ and ‘white culture’, which it clearly regards with disapproval. Sinister aspects of ‘white culture’ apparently include ‘hard work’, ‘self-reliance’, ‘the nuclear family’, ‘competition’, ‘delayed gratification’ and even ‘rigid time schedules’.
In just the first three weeks of this year, the NHS advertised for 19 ‘diversity and sustainability’ posts, with a combined salary of a cool £1 million. Indeed, in total the NHS in England alone employs an estimated 800 diversity and inclusion officers, costing a staggering £40 million a year.“
Is there any peaceful way to stop this slide to complete chaos or dystopian tyranny? Frankly, I think not.
Free speech. Freedom of expression.
Africa is no good for the white man any more. All African countries are now (i.e. now that they are African-ruled) shambolic, corrupt, and suffused with crime and extreme violence, though some more than others.
Another UK policeman playing the poundland KGB operative in uniform instead of doing his proper job. It has become pervasive. The police are now almost useless in terms of protecting the British public, while waging the culture war against the British people, and at the instigation of both “woke” activists and (of course) the endlessly, relentlessly, whining and demanding Jew-Zionist lobby.
My assessment of Macron, from about 4 years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/09/on-recent-events-in-france/.
As I have blogged previously, for me there are two main issues that stand out: firstly, at some point (and as Elon Musk has mentioned), AI gets to the point whereby it takes over the reins of its own evolution, no longer requiring, or even permitting, human decision-making to control that; secondly, AI may become so pervasive that it becomes almost impossible for any individual human being, or for humanity as a group, to live without it.
That is already to a large extent so in relation to, inter alia, mobile telephones, online access, debit/credit cards etc. Yes, you can live without internet access, without a mobile telephone (I have not had one for many years), without debit or credit cards etc, but it gets harder every month to live “off-grid” in that way.
Once cash becomes a medium of exchange used only by the marginalized, and not used much in supermarkets, larger shops etc, the System/matrix will have almost power of life and death over citizens. Say or do something anti-System, or anti the System agenda, and your banking services will be cut off, and you will find it hard to continue your political life, hard to conduct any business or profession, hard even to buy food, in the end.
“Conspiracy theory”? No. A number of people, such as Laura Towler, Mark Collett, Sam Melia (all of Patriotic Alternative) have had exactly that happen to them in the past couple of years.
The possibility now exists for one, two, or more encirclements.
Ha. Reminiscent of Lieutenant Kije: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lieutenant_Kij%C3%A9_(film).
I wonder whether “the Ghost of Kiev” will become, over time, a figure thought by many to have been a real person, in the manner of Wilhelm Tell (or William Tell): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Tell.

I have already blogged a few times about my visit to the UK’s Porton Down “biolab” campus in Wiltshire in or about 1995, accompanying the then Ukrainian Ambassador to the UK; incidentally or co-incidentally, he was a trained scientist in the field(s) of biochemistry, microbiology etc: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serhiy_Komisarenko. See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porton_Down.
The sooner the Kiev regime runs out of arms, ammunition, and personnel, the better. Russia can take over Kiev and eastern Ukraine (east of the Dnieper) and start the work of rebuilding the damaged areas. Ukrainians (and Russians in Ukraine) live, in general, with lower living standards than Russians, certainly Russians from central or Baltic Russia (Moscow, Petersburg etc), and (as Putin has recently said) should be helped to a better standard of living.
Ukrainian police act as a press-gang, trying to force random and unwilling young men to become soldiers in Zelensky’s war.
The “May 9” reference refers to the so-called “Day of Victory” in 1945: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victory_Day_(9_May).
Good, if obvious, points.
…or kosher ones.
London and the other large UK cities have gone the same way.
The cretins of what passes for the Kiev regime “high command”, and the similar idiots in Washington, cannot or will not see that, were Crimea actually to be isolated by a Kiev-regime fantasy “counter-offensive”, the Russian response might well be a tactical nuclear strike on the Kiev-regime forces, or even on central Kiev itself, obliterating Zelensky and his cabal (if that is where they really are).
The Ukrainians themselves are now starting to push back against the Zelensky regime.

This bloody war would have been over in a month or two had not been for:
A) The colossal incompetence of the Russian Army, particularly
its top brass.
B) The obscene amount of material sent to Zelensky by the US and its lackeys (the EU)
God knows how many poor innocent civilians and animals have been killed!
This man produces videos about towns in SW England.
The British Government have engaged in social engineering, moving drug addicted people and economically inactive people, out to the seaside.
These towns mostly have beautiful beaches and were once very popular as holiday destinations. This one is about Dorset, but he has also done Devon, Somerset and others. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wU1zWfO6wY4
This video is interesting because, if you look closely, you will see that ALL the visitors are White. This is logical because ONLY WHITE PEOPLE care about beautiful buildings, works of art, gardening, music, etc, etc, etc. In spite of that, the bastards of the (Anti) National Trust fill their website with pictures of blacks and mulattos who pretend to be in awe of the buildings and works of art. What a sick joke!
You are right, at least overall.
We live in an age of propaganda that outdoes the even more crude attempts of the 1930s and 1940s in, say, the Soviet Union.
In a country such as the UK, as it now is, there is 24/7 propaganda, not much on posters or newspapers but in TV ads, dramas, melodramas, films etc. A wraparound propaganda or brainwashing programme.

Let’s see who comes to support KCIII at his Coronation. As with the Queen’s funeral, it is likely we will see the streets lined with white people.
KCIII is rumoured to be filling Westminster Abbey with ‘diversity’ and NHS staff, whilst excluding many Dukes and even close family members such as Lady Pamela Hicks, who was a bridesmaid at QEII’s wedding and attended her Coronation. The Archbishop of Canterbury is having a fit because KCIII wants prayers said in the Abbey by Jewish, Muslim and more, faith leaders.
Stand by for a ‘woke Coronation for a weak King’.

Excellent observation! I like “a woke coronation for a weak king”, more than weak I would say wimp. Charles is the most despicable of all the Royals with regards to the “chosen people”. There are numerous examples of his disgusting, subservient attitude towards his masters.
BTW, those videos from Dorset are very good and, at the same time, very depressing. The destruction of England is not only a social and ethnic phenomenon but also architectural; have you noticed how horrible most of the recent buildings are? Ugly surroundings make people miserable.
This will give you an idea of the horrendous inflation we have here. In February last year I got a quote for the materials needed for a major work involving re-wiring part of our house. The price was $ 21.400. However, other problems that required urgent attention came up unexpectedly and my wife and I decided to postpone the work,
This week, almost exactly 1 year and 2 months after my first enquiry, I requested a new quote from the same company; the price now is $ 74.900! This represents an increase of exactly 350%! To put this in perspective the average monthly salary is $102.000. We have the third highest inflation rate in the world. This is a disaster.
