From the newspapers
At least that particular judge seems to be on the right page.
“Liz Truss was last night at the centre of an extraordinary row after the Government demanded she pay more than £12,000 following the disappearance of items including bathrobes and slippers from her grace-and-favour country home.
The Cabinet Office was told by staff at the house that items such as towelling robes and even slippers vanished during that period, and have asked her to cover the cost.
‘They have also objected to the idea that the taxpayer should foot the bill for what were basically a series of summer parties, and say she owes more than £12,000 for it.’
In December, The Guardian reported that traces of a suspected Class-A drug were found at Chevening after the parties – which Ms Truss has said is ‘categorically untrue’.
The newspaper said members of staff twice found traces of white powder in a games room, after nights where Ms Truss was known to have entertained guests. The workers claimed they tested the powder with a swab which changes colour when it comes into contact with cocaine, and got a positive result.“
I presume that drug-abusing Israel puppet Gove was there, together with Woollyhead Trussbanger (Kwasi Kwarteng).
It smacks of desperation.
Time after time, the USA has abandoned allies to their fate.

Never give in to “them”, never give in to their whining, or demanding, or to their attempted intimidatory behaviour.
Twitter and the msm are alive with comment about the Jewish money-man turned BBC Chairman (and loan facilitator for “Boris”-idiot), Richard Shark…I mean “Sharp”…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Sharp_(BBC_chairman)#Early_life].
“Poverty increased from 5.5% to 24.2% in Ukraine in 2022, pushing 7.1 million more people into poverty with the worst impact out of sight in rural villages, according to a recent report by the World Bank. With unemployment unofficially at 36% and inflation hitting 26.6% at the end of 2022, the institution’s regional country director for eastern Europe, Arup Banerji, had warned that poverty could soar.“
Even before the war, Ukraine was the poorest state in Europe per capita. 30 years of shambolic, chaotic, corrupt misrule.
Ukraine is not really a state at all at this point. It would already have collapsed, both economically and militarily, without the huge influxes of Western money, arms, ammunition, and other aid.
“Of the 57 people who have held the highest office, Seldon suggests, Johnson was probably unique in that he came to it with “no sense of any fixed position. No religious faith, no political ideology”. His only discernible ambition, Seldon says, was that “like Roman emperors he wanted monuments in his name”.
“I suppose at least Cummings did believe in Brexit, although ultimately, really, did he?” he says. “From everything we heard [for the book] it just seemed Cummings was full of hatred. He probably hates himself; he certainly hates other people. He wants to destroy everything. Johnson in his own way never knew what he stood for, but he shared that contempt for the Tory party, contempt for the cabinet, contempt for the civil service, contempt for the EU, contempt for the army, contempt for business, contempt for intellectuals, contempt for universities.
About a decade ago, Seldon, who is a governor of the Royal Shakespeare Company, began an informal programme with David Cameron’s government that sought to provide for the present incumbents of the highest office some history of No 10 itself and their predecessors there. He staged a series of talks from prominent historians, as well as performances of Shakespeare in the rose garden, in the belief that politicians “might root themselves in the arts, in the benchmark of what is good and true”. He recalls a performance that the RSC gave for Cameron and guests just before the former resigned as prime minister: “It was quite a moving occasion in the garden. The killing of Caesar was one of the scenes and I remember watching Cameron with his daughter leaning on his shoulder and Samantha next to him.”
When Johnson came to power Seldon hoped the programme might continue – Johnson did after all have a lucrative contract to write a book about Shakespeare. There was no interest whatsoever. “Covid made things difficult obviously,” he says, “but we did come in. Johnson never once showed up. As [his school reports showed] he had no deep interest in any classical history, language or literature or Shakespeare. His examples were always for show. At his heart, he is extraordinarily empty. He can’t keep faithful to any idea, any person, any wife.”
Typical of failing societies throughout history; symptomatic.

That photograph, taken on the last day in office of Boris the Clown, is telling. The Poseur in Chief, trying to show off with his younger and new-ish wife, a brainless bimbo almost personifying the kind of careerist know-nothings so prominent in the Westminster bubble of the past decade.
Starmer, a puppet of the Jew-Zionist-Israel lobby, as well as being as dull as ditchwater.
A thought or two for the “refugees welcome” dimwits to ponder upon
Late tweets seen
The Jew-Zionist lobby, in particular, abuses laws of that sort in order to censor the views of non-Jews.
Interesting indeed, if accurate.

Hello Ian: I am very late today; here is 8.00 pm, that means midnight in the UK. Here is a very good cartoon I found in Twitter:
As I suspected, either there will be no Kiev-regime counter-offensive *or* there will be a very limited one.
