City of Chester by-election

I was going to publish a separate piece about the upcoming by-election, but have decided that that would not be merited.

Chester, as a settlement, has a history going back to 79 AD, when it was established as a Roman fortress: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chester.

The City of Chester constituency also has a very old history, going back to the times of Henry VIII. In modern times, meaning 19th/20th centuries, it has mostly been a Conservative/Unionist seat, though electing Labour Party candidates in 1997, 2001, 2005, 2015, 2017, and 2019. Two Labour MPs in that time, with a Conservative in the years 2010-2015: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Chester_(UK_Parliament_constituency).

The by-election will be held on 1 December 2022, 8 days from today, and is the first by-election in the constituency since 1956.

The MP from 2015 to 2022 had to resign by reason of sexual scandal.

The candidates declared are: Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat; also, Reform UK, Green, Freedom Alliance, UKIP, Rejoin EU, and the inevitable Monster Raving Loony.

This is likely to be a straight fight between Lab and Con, looking at previous elections. The LibDems have in the past scored as high as 21.9% (in 2005); since 2010 they have always received less than 10% of the vote (6.8% in 2019), and have never managed better than 3rd place (even in 2005).

Labour, nationwide, is clearly on a roll at present, if only by default. The latest YouGov poll (on 17 November 2022) of (UK-wide) voting intention put Labour on 48%, Conservative 25%, LibDem 10%, and both Green and Reform UK on 5%.

Despite the scandal attaching to the former MP, I cannot see that affecting the result. As a matter of fact, both Con and Lab are putting up female candidates, though that may be co-incidental.

There seems little to prevent Labour winning this by-election, and winning it easily. Not only is the present Con government extremely unpopular, but Labour has, after all, won in this constituency the past three times, and held it for 20 out of the past 25 years.

I cannot see the LibDems getting far here, even as some kind of unfocussed protest vote. As for Reform UK, the only other contender of interest, they may or may not save their deposit. I could see them, just about, getting 5%; I cannot see them getting 10% or more, especially now that Brexit is not so popular, having been badly mishandled over the past 6 years.

The main interest in the contest will be in the percentage(s) of the vote received by the two main contenders.

Charitable appeal

As people now say, “based“. Talk about sang-froid

I have been to Moscow twice, in 1993 and 2007, and I have to say that the keyword that comes to my mind is “inconvenient“…

More tweets

Looks as though the “Jack Monroe”/”Bootstrap Cook” star is rapidly waning.

The above tweet was about the “@GuardianLive” tweet featuring “Jack Monroe” as booked to appear on a podcast event in early 2023, which tweet has now been deleted. Now we hear that that podcast itself has been axed.

Seems that “Jack Monroe” is, as predicted, becoming “mad, bad, and dangerous to know“…

Even so, the 667 “mugs” on Patreon are, as of today, still giving her their monthly donations for doing absolutely nothing except maintaining her lifestyle, e.g. buying herself luxury goods. Somewhere between c.£2,300 a month and (at maximum) £40,000 a month. In reality, probably about £6,000, at an educated guess. In cash (minus Patreon fees), and every single month. All that and she still poses as a “champion of the poor“! Hard to believe that so many people are so very gullible; yet they have been told now for three or four months that they are just wasting their money.

More tweets

As said previously on the blog, I myself have no objection to Scotland declaring faux-“independence”, but those voting for it must accept lower living standards, and an end to UK subsidy.

As the tweeter says, just look at them! Can they really bring Scotland a new dawn? I think not.

As for Nicola Sturgeon, she is a ghastly little would-be dictator with no interesting ideas (that I have seen).

The flotsam and jetsam of the world is assisted to come here, destroying our society, and is kept in comfort (most of them), while British people suffer. Not only mad, but also evil. [Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan].

Whatever the relevance of that, can anyone look at those uninspiring people and imagine that they will be able to usher in a new age of prosperity and enlightenment in Scotland?

In any case, it seems that Scotland is still split about 50-50 on “Independence”, with possibly more wanting to retain the Union.

However, even if there were a small majority for “Independence”, would that be valid, really? To drag the other, say 45%, into an unwanted break with England and the other regions or countries? After over 300 years?

Of course, the absurd playground taunts of the two sides in the present conflict (“you are the ‘Nazi'”; “no, you are the ‘Nazi’“) are just silly.

Actually, the German Army in WW2, despite the pitiless nature of that war in the East, behaved well, mostly, in Ukraine, certainly better than the Red Army. Most atrocities were committed either by the Red Army (or by the forces travelling alongside them— the NKVD and, latterly, Smersh), or by Ukrainian auxiliaries under overall German command, or by Ukrainian civilians who just wanted to eliminate Jews, and who acted without either order or permission.

I have blogged in the past a few times about how I met, in or about 1995, the then Ukrainian Ambassador to London, H.E. Ambassador Komissarenko [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serhiy_Komisarenko], a biochemist by training, who went with me and his Scientific Attache in the ambassadorial limousine to Porton Down, Wiltshire [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porton_Down], to meet a scientific team based there. He later headed a major such laboratory in Ukraine, I think not far from Kiev.

Late tweets seen

That Freya Vass person is a grade A loony. I have seen her tweets (in support of “Jack Monroe”/”Bootstrap Cook”) previously.

Exactly. On examining the evidence, I have gone from mildly-supportive to neutral to very critical.

Some of the fantasies or lies of the “Bootstrap Cook” have been worthy of Walter Mitty, Billy Liar, or Baron Munchausen. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_Munchausen; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Liar; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Mitty.

The “Covid” hysteria, “lockdowns”, “working from home” in the barely functioning NHS, maladministration, and then the huge and unwanted influx of non-white migrant-invaders and other immigrants over the past many years.

Just google “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan”…

I do not know whether all the msm, “comms”, political, NGO-type virtue-signallers championing “Jack Monroe” are still doing so because they are unaware of the, er, “controversy” now surrounding her, whether they cannot admit that they have let themselves be taken for a ride, or whether it is because they are just enemies of the people.

True up to a point, but the almost uninterested reaction of much of the British public to the fact of finance-capitalist exploitation, non-white migration-invasion, and cultural slide, makes me believe that it is hard to much undervalue the intelligence of that same British public. They even, many of them, think that “Labour” will be better than “Conservative”. How would that be when, at root, it is one corrupt System? Both are no good.

Google “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan”.

When I first became a regular customer at Waitrose (because I moved back to the UK, and to an area with only one nearby supermarket), the staff were plentiful, always helpful, always polite and pleasant; many though not all were older people supplementing pensions and/or doing it for the social interaction.

Now, though the above is still partly true, I notice that many of the older people have been replaced by college students etc. There seem to be staff shortages. Some of the younger employees literally cannot work out how many Lotto tickets have to be issued if you buy x-number of lines and get x-number on each ticket; they have to resort to a calculator. After 11, 12, 13 years of full-time education. Also, the push to be “inclusive” has led to the employing of some persons who are obviously autistic or whatever. Some are pleasant, others less so.

Add to that supply shortages, and the experience is not what it was.

Anecdotal, of course. Still, a micro-version of the country as a whole.

As for that silly Tom Harwood fellow, he seems to be living in cloud-cuckoo land. Let us say that you allow some brain surgeon or whatever, and from wherever, to live in the UK. He or she brings, probably, a family. Are they all brain surgeons? No. Will they breed? Probably. Will they breed brain surgeons? No. Thus the UK is gradually filled with useless non-whites of the Femi Oluwole type, or worse.

As for “Aussie doctors”— as if they would come to the UK! The flow is all the other way. Doctors, nurses etc.

Without the US/UK (NWO/ZOG) help, the failed state based on Kiev would have collapsed months ago.

Eliminate or deport them.

Before I forget

Saw a “public information” ad on TV. All about how people should be “vaccinated” or “boosted” this winter. Set in a mock-up of some kind of medical centre. Complete with a white woman walking out, while holding the hand of a young black child. At least two of the propaganda points of the System in one ad.

Yet billions are being spent on useless hostile trash who have arrived illegally across the Channel and are being sheltered in hotels, fed, given £50 a week pocket money, telephones, computers, and priority for social housing.

This country is broken and needs a social-national revolution.

Elon Musk

Interesting person. I blogged some time ago about him. I thought him too intelligent to buy Twitter, which has scarcely ever turned a profit. Well, as we know, he bought it anyway.

Now we see the “woke” millions in the USA (and some in the UK) turning against him, and the Jew lobby turning against him, both groups wanting to see more repression of free speech, not less.

According to Wikipedia, Musk’s net worth is around USD $174 billion; the Twitter purchase cost $44 billion, about a quarter of Musk’s capital. Even if he lost the whole $44 billion, which is unlikely in the extreme, he would still have about USD $130 billion left.

One thought does strike me: Musk can (arguende) see what is happening in the world, and has enough money to satisfy any dreams of avarice, so maybe he will support social-national ideals (if only by default), in order to influence society. We shall see.

Migrant-invaders, who should be treated as such.

…and that you must make your daughters, and their friends, available for the use of the untermenschen…

Some people with mental or other problems want to commit suicide, but there are hordes of idiots who cannot wait for Britain to commit national suicide.

…and Jeremy Hunt’s wife works for or with the Chinese government…

I think that I feel a conspiracy theory coming on.

The “Covid” “vaccines” are so “harmless” that the UK Government has a programme whereby those injured by them can claim a lump sum payment of £120,000 (because the Big Pharma companies have been made exempt by law from being sued— but that exemption only covers “Covid” “vaccines”, not any others…). See https://www.gov.uk/vaccine-damage-payment.

It would be good to see Eddie Izzard fall flat on his face, politically or otherwise.

Peter Hitchens has plenty to say; some of it is quite correct. I should prefer him to use his prominence and platform for the more serious issues (such as Russia/Ukraine) and less often for smaller issues such as marijuana misuse, postage stamp design, electric bicycles etc.

My assessment of Hitchens from a few years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/

All part of the wallpaper. All the citizen on the street can do is give any such sub-terrorists seen blocking roads or vandalizing artworks a good kicking before the police step in to arrest, not the terrorist “protesters” but the aggrieved citizens. Incidentally, some of the grey-haired ones are even more smug and arrogant than the younger ones. They deserve the same, or more.

Think about that. An “African knife gang” in Galway, in the West of Ireland! The ground-level result of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan (conspiracy).

The last time I was in Ireland (mid-1980s) there were no blacks. Did not see one, not even in Dublin, let alone elsewhere.

In the end, the Aryan/post-Aryan people left after whatever is coming will have to wade through whatever it takes to get rid of evil and to create a better society.

God. More “trans” nonsense.

Unfunny comedy (again)

Saw 2-3 minutes of a live TV show called Live at the Apollo. Pushed the wrong button; wanted the TV news.

Some completely unfunny bearded comedian (supposedly). A monologue about how he supports “trans” “rights” (applauded by the audience), then a completely unfunny punchline (supposedly the punchline). Do those idiots pay £50 or £100 to see and hear that? God knows.

A few minutes was more than enough. Switch off.

I have no idea whether, or to what extent, the tweet above is accurate. I have, however, seen dozens, probably hundreds, of tweeters making similar claims. It does seem to me, though, that the matter should be investigated. My recent assessment: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.

A pack of Zionist Jews had me expelled from Twitter in 2018.

I am no businessman (far from it) and Elon Musk is (as his net worth —grown from a modest start— proves), yet I cannot believe that to spend USD $44 billion on something like Twitter is money well spent, from any point of view. Still, there it is.

I am waiting to see whether any art-lovers or passing citizens will really deal properly, and on the spot, with those sub-terrorists. I hope so. I really hope so.

Overall comment on recent political events and on the new Government

For me, one of the major aspects, looking at both the Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak Cabinets is the sheer mediocrity, at best, of the Cabinet ministers appointed by both Truss and Sunak (several appointed by the former have now been reappointed to various offices by the latter).

Here we have a country of 60-70 million inhabitants, a country with a long and distinguished history, and which has produced more for the world, arguably, than most if not all others [including, among hundreds of examples, the Industrial Revolution, trains, hovercraft, jet aircraft, radar, modern sanitation etc], and the best our political system can throw up (so to speak) is this pack of idiots? In the old Private Eye caricature of the newspaper editor Bill Deedes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Deedes], “shome mishtake, shurely?“.

Brexit was badly mishandled. How to save it? First thing is to stop arms, ammunition, and money going from the pockets of British taxpayers to the dictatorial regime of the Jew Zelensky in Kiev.

Second necessary thing is for Britain to withdraw trade sanctions against Russia, restore full trade links and, also very important, cultural links. This will benefit Britain hugely, especially now that the EU, USA, and other states have pledged to intensify trade sanctions. An open field for British commerce, with little competition.

Third thing would be to distance the UK from NATO.

In return, I have no doubt that Russia would supply gas at cost, or even below cost, to the UK; a direct pipeline could be constructed. Britain would thereby stave off both energy shortages and high prices.

The above would not, of itself, solve the problems in dealing with the EU single market, but would mitigate them.

I have discussed previously on the blog that “Jimmy Carr Destroys Art” show, created by Jews at Channel 4, and featuring grinning little monkey and tax evader/avoider Jimmy Carr. Don’t want to waste any time on the bastard today.

Incidentally, though, perhaps I should add that I despise the concept and actuality of Jimmy Carr Destroys Art for wider reasons than simply because one of the works of art destroyed was by Adolf Hitler.

I would not, for example, want to destroy Jewish art, such as the works of Chagall, or even the degenerate contemporary “art” of moneygrubbing “artists” such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, who are not Jewish themselves, but their work heavily promoted by the wealthy and well-connected Jew, Charles Saatchi: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Saatchi.

Actually, the German Reich did not, as a rule, destroy what it considered “degenerate” and/or Jewish art; it actually held exhibitions of it, as educative for the people.

Exactly. The Jews at Channel 4 who are behind Jimmy Carr Destroys Art, and the “woke”/”antifa”/Jews/etc who watch it and like it, just want to go “ha ha! That’s one relic of ‘Nazism’ gone!“. It panders to a love of destructiveness, especially on the part of the Jew-Zionist element.

Even those who, like me, commend the basic principle behind National Socialism, would not (I certainly would not) say that Hitler’s youthful paintings are “great art”. They are mostly no more than competent. There is no argument for destroying them, however.

As for Eric Gill, a perverse person, but his art is interesting and also significant for its role in its time period. You could say much the same of many great artists of the recent and further past.

In the end, there will be only one way to eliminate the evil “woke”/”antifa” etc from society.

Justice?

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11355605/Drunk-businessman-46-sexually-assaulted-girl-17-flight-Manchester-spared-jail.html

I applaud mercy on the part of sentencing judges, in principle, but not when justice itself is cast aside.

Look at that non-sentence, very typical of today.

It sometimes “seems” that, unless the case is one of murder or terrorism, or tweeting/blogging a few criticisms of the Jewish influence in the UK (eg in the cases of Alison Chabloz or Jez Turner), it is all but impossible to get imprisoned in the UK, no matter what you do to other people.

Reminds me of times past, about 30 years ago.

When I was living intermittently in New Jersey in the early 1990s, I was invited to lunch by American friends of someone I knew at the Bar in London. The three Americans were all partners of a small law firm specializing in shipping and insurance.

When I arrived at their office in downtown Manhattan, near Wall Street, a small group was just leaving, including a bearded Jew wearing a skullcap.

The American lawyers explained that that group had been there in connection with a matter involving insurance, in which matter the people I was visiting were on the other side. The bearded one was said to be a rabbi, who owned commercial property in Brooklyn. I was surprised. I was unaware that Jew rabbis were allowed to own, or did own, business enterprises.

My American hosts laughed and told me that the rabbi was suspected of having had the building in question torched for the insurance. “We call it Jewish lightning!“, they explained.

My religious education was enriched further by another encounter at that office: I met another lawyer who came in and had a cross on his forehead, marked out in ash. I asked what that was, and was told that it was to do with Lent in the Eastern Orthodox church, the lawyer concerned being a Lebanese Christian [https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/article/meaning-cross-ashes-ash-wednesday]. New York City, the melting pot…

I had never seen that (the marking of the forehead), nor even heard of it, previously.

A memorable day also for the interesting lunch that followed, held at an old New York club (I think not now in existence, though), called the New York Drug and Chemical Club, and founded by the leaders of those industries a century or more before, but now situate 50 or more floors up in a skyscraper. Interesting to eat clams and drink Bloody Mary cocktails as the odd helicopter slid by the window (silently), en route to the East River Heliport. A New York experience not had by most visitors to the city.

A year or two later, I hosted the same Americans when they came to London on business. We went to the unique (and now also closed down) Luba’s Bistro at Yeoman’s Row, Knightsbridge, one of my regular haunts back then.

Bring your own wine, beer, or vodka, and enjoy their unchanging 1950s menu, an eclectic mix of Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Georgian, and a bit of French, all consumed in a crowded restaurant where you would be seated near (and I do mean near) the next table of diners, who might be anything from a Church of England canon (accompanied by young blonde wife) who was “an honorary archimandrite of the Eastern Orthodox Church” (overheard by my then girlfriend), to Soviet types who might or might not have been spies of some sort.

Happy days (I suppose).

Of all the ways governments have wasted money in the past, the “panicdemic” nonsense, and particularly the “Test and Trace” nonsense was the most egregious; almost unbelievable.

As previously blogged, if the Triple Lock is abandoned, then the 60+ age group population of voters will probably abandon the Conservative Party en bloc.

Gavin Williamson

Unbelievably, Gavin Williamson, one of the most stupid MPs of the lot, is back in government, this time as “Minister without Portfolio”. I think that he is a freemason, perhaps of some rank. Nothing else explains why he is even an MP.

A reminder that “Labour” has become as much of a bad joke as the fake “Conservatives”.

As to Eddie Izzard, that creature apparently intends to seek selection as a candidate at the next general election, perhaps for a seat in Sheffield. His prominence as entertainer will probably ensure an easy victory.

If someone, not even from the 1960s or 1970s, but as recently as the 1990s, were suddenly to land in the Britain of 2022, he or she (not “he/she” or “they“) would find much of this country pretty mad, as well as very much in decline in most ways.

The National Trust, like the RNLI and most big charities and institutions, is now riddled with traitors of all sorts in high positions.

Mark Twain had it first and best: “there are lies, damned lies, and statistics“…

Someone can be “competent” to “run the economy”, and increase GDP etc, but if the benefits of that strong economy go almost entirely to the richest 20%, 10%, 5%, 1% (and in the UK it is mainly the 1%), then who can blame the other (as it might be) 99% of the population for saying “screw it! I don’t care!“(?).

I am reminded of the middle-aged man before the Brexit Referendum who was asked by a reporter whether he would change his Leave stance if he were convinced that Brexit would damage the economy. His answer? “I don’t really care…it’s only me and the dog“…

Nearly” a failed state?! Absolutely a failed state. It has been for most if not all of its 31-year history.
