On this day a year ago
I missed that from about 10 days ago.
When Jews started to flood into the then British-ruled Palestine, after the First World War, they were a small minority. In the period immediately before the Second World War, they were still a minority, but since the establishment of the Jewish state of Israel in 1948, the Jews have not only become the majority, but have gradually taken over most of the land of Palestine; by war, by terrorism, and now more by gradual encroachment supported by Israeli law and typical Jewish misuse of law.
In fact, if you include both Israeli territory and the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza, the Jewish population is not far in excess of the numbers of the Palestinian population(s), but of course the Jews control most of the levers of force and coercion.

The overall pattern has happened in muted form elsewhere. In Germany, particularly in the 1920s; also in the UK, mainly since the mid-19th Century and acceleratedly so since the 1930s. In the USA and other countries as well.
What matters is not the relative size of population(s), but rather the level of control exercised; not only over military power directly, but including that exercised over law, the legal professions, the mass media, money, and politics.
Just another attempt to encourage donations from bamboozled mugs.
Incredible how many mugs exist in this country (maybe kind, well-meaning etc, but still mugs). There again, were that not not the case, we would not have had taken seriously a number of scams of recent years, such as the “Covid” “panicdemic”, the “vaccine”/”booster” stuff, “Black Lives Matter” and the like, as well as the 2010-2015 “need” for “austerity” (spending cuts) etc.
Many of those that our country has fed and sheltered hate us, not because of anything we have done (good or bad) but because we are white Northern Europeans.
As the Russians say, “feed a wolf how you will, but he will always look back toward the forest“…
A couple of rounds should do it…
The NHS, though a good idea in principle, and even in practice (at times, perhaps often, even today), is not now providing a proper overall service. Needs root and branch reform.
The system known as “healthcare”, inc. NHS should be more intelligently linked to “adult social care” and “elderly care”, to provide a properly-working service for an ageing British population.
As for nurses, naturally I support them having a decent income, but they will —and rightly— lose much public support if they put their own financial interest (however justified) above compassion and care for helpless and suffering people.
“The world is not without kind people” [Russian popular saying].
Par for the course: see the similar case of Shaun Bailey, the last “Conservative” candidate for Mayor of London: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaun_Bailey_(London_politician); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaun_Bailey_(London_politician)#Career_before_politics.
Ironically, Bailey’s scam was taken over by “Kids’ Company”, another shambolic fake “charity” scam: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kids_Company.
Reminded me of a brief (and partial) version of the life of Abraham Lincoln:
1832: lost job; defeated for State legislature;
1833: failed in business;
1835: “sweetheart” died;
1836: had nervous breakdown;
1838: defeated for Speaker;
1843: defeated for nomination for Congress;
1848: defeated for renomination;
1849: rejected as land officer;
1854: defeated for U.S. Senate;
1856: defeated in nomination for Vice-President;
1858: defeated again for U.S. Senate;
1860: Elected President of the United States.
“Controlled opposition” drones like that Tom Harwood individual are just a waste of space. An ignorant waste of space, too.
When I lived for a little while in the Caribbean (about 22-23 years ago), I met an American naval officer on vacation with his wife. I never asked him his rank (or the name of his ship), but I presume at least a naval captain, maybe higher, in view of the fact that he commanded a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier.
A pleasant little man, who looked a bit like the Penguin in the 1960s Batman TV series, he had an air of unstressed command. Not exactly “commanding”, still less imperious or contrived; he just radiated a kind of urbane manner that conveyed that he knew that anything that he did order to be done would be done.
I asked that naval officer over a drink how on Earth he carried the responsibility of something like docking a ship of such enormous size, and he replied rather modestly that “ah, I have people to do things like that for me“…
