You see rubbish on Twitter about this, all about how New Zealand’s economy is “booming” etc. Well, the statistics lie, and for a very obvious reason: when you shut down a country almost completely for 2 years, the economy nosedives. Any activity at all after that seems, superficially, to be strong growth.
“Then there is her approach to Covid. Initially, the world bought into the myth that her government was a top performer in eliminating the disease.
The truth, of course, is that it’s relatively simple to quarantine remote islands. And having introduced a strategy of isolation and hard lockdown at the start of the pandemic, Ardern clung to a zero-Covid policy that was way beyond the edge of reason.
Her government shut down businesses, closed entire towns if a small outbreak of the virus occurred, and forced New Zealand citizens who happened to be abroad when the pandemic struck to apply to enter their own country, with only a tiny number of places available via an online lottery system.
At first, the policy was popular, with Ardern using Facebook Live sessions to communicate with the nation in a crumpled jumper, after putting her daughter to bed, in a manner that struck a chord with the public. Indeed, in the 2020 election, her party polled almost 50 per cent.
Yet, as time went on, opposition to this sometimes cruel policy (for which exemptions were only available for celebrities and the ultra-wealthy) grew, with critics lambasting a sluggish vaccine rollout and pointing out that the only world leader more bloody-minded in holding on to a strategy of eliminating Covid at all costs was communist China’s president Xi Jinping.
The crescendo of division and unrest saw huge demonstrations outside parliament.“
“Huge demonstrations“…which were not covered at all by the BBC, Sky, ITN, or the “Lugenpresse” System msm outlets of the UK; and what about that bit re. “exemptions were only available for celebrities and the ultra-wealthy“? Peak pseudo-socialist nonsense. As in “the virus is so dangerous that only the ultra-wealthy and —of course— ‘celebrities’ can do whatever they like”…
It reads more like a parody than real government policy, even if it is from a joke state like New Zealand.
Try telling the truth, though, to the msm drones in the UK, let alone the Twitterati mugs. They are closed to the truth, on almost any subject.
Jacinda Ardern was just another Blair-type NWO/ZOG puppet (in fact, she worked for a while as a “SpAd” at Westminster, under Blair.
The whole interconnected milieux (msm “journalism”, “fashion”, TV/radio “comedy” and “drama”, in fact TV generally) should be purged, and I do not just mean deprived of its riches and platform.
Perhaps the New Zealanders could institute a “Jacinda Day”, akin to our “Guy Fawkes Day”, in which an effigy of “Jacinda” might be immolated in some way that produces few “emissions”… A kind of “damp squib” fire that produces little light or warmth. Symbolic, you might say…
“Far right“? Oh, they mean people not totally brainwashed by NWO/ZOG propaganda:
Only (sort–of) joking… but then, Sinn Fein/IRA has become a joke anyway, a kind of —superficially— more militant SNP or Plaid Cymru.
The police should be investigating all that. Why should a black woman in Bristol be facing trial on very similar facts yet “Jack Monroe” not only not investigated but even still being promoted by some of the msm?
A typical “Jack Monroe” supporter might be a woman of about 60 years old, not badly-off, pretty ignorant but thinking herself rather educated, and living in some suburban or rural area; a Guardian reader, pro the Kiev regime, pro the facemask nonsense, needless to say “anti-racist” etc. Or a male, or LGBTQXYZ, equivalent, possibly retired, possibly a business owner in a modest way, probably “woke” etc. Certainly not “poor” or “struggling”.
The first part of that is plainly not libellous even on its face.
The second part may or may not be.
How is saying that “Jack Monroe” “makes more money than the Prime Minister” libellous at all, even if not true? Answer: it isn’t.
So she claims to be “still suing” Con MP Lee Anderson. I wonder. So far, according to Lee Anderson, he has not received any pre-action correspondence as required under the Civil Procedure Rules.
An action in defamation must be brought within a year of the triggering cause, but even then is still expected to be brought expeditiously; in lieu of that, there may be costs consequences.
“Jack Monroe” still has, in theory, 3-4 months in which to bring proceedings, but I doubt whether they will be brought or, if brought, would be successful.
Can anyone rely on any statement put out by “Jack Monroe”? I think not.

The “Jack Monroe” scandal rolls further on…
My guess is that “Jack Monroe” may even get a solicitor to send a “Letter before Action” to Lee Anderson, which will help her to continue to plead for money im various ways, and keep her in the news, so maybe attracting more mugs to subsidize her. There will, however, be no actual issuance of proceedings against Lee Anderson or Martin Daubney. If I am wrong about that, and proceedings are actually issued, that will eventually turn out to be a very expensive error for the “Bootstrap Cook”.
Actually, she goes lower. Lee Anderson claimed that 30p can feed someone at least for a day or part of a day; “Jack Monroe” claims 11p! Is there a prize for the first idiot or “grifter” who claims to be able to make a 1p lunch?
The continuing “Jack Monroe”/”Bootstrap Cook” Twitterstorm
I personally cannot judge as to whether, or to what extent, “Jack Monroe” is “sad, bad, or mad“, in the well-known phrase. Maybe a bit mad and a bit bad…but that is just my opinion, based on what I have read, and 66 years of life-experience.
The more I read about “Jack Monroe”, the more I think “bad” rather than “mad”, in fact.
As I have blogged previously, some of the photos seen on Twitter of the food made from the recipes of the “Bootstrap Cook” seem to be a “dog’s dinner” at best; some have made me feel actually unwell. I don’t mean when made and eaten (I would not make stuff like that anyway, still less ingest it) but just the mere sight of her “food” on Twitter.
I concede that I am not very domesticated and, until I married for the first time (in 1990), had mainly eaten cold food when dining at home (in my twenties and early thirties). In fact, I am still not much of a cook, though I can offer to my readers the following idea, which is relatively cheap, rather tasty, fairly healthy (though admittedly rather high-fat) and, best of all, can be made from start to finish in about 45 mins:
That “zucchini bake” can be added to; you can add whatever vegetables are around— mushrooms, broccoli (inc. stalks, if grated or sliced), carrots etc. The only essentials are eggs, butter, zucchini/courgettes, salt, pepper, and cheese (any kind, but cheddar works well, maybe with some parmesan). Some basil helps.
I do not think I shall make a regular thing out of suggesting recipes. I would probably run out of the things that I myself have actually made in my whole life after a week or two. Still, I hope that the above is useful for someone.
About £5 to serve 4 people, or one person four times. Basic, yes, but I think that it stacks up pretty well against the offerings of “Jack Monroe”…
…and the £24,000 award she collected from her libel case against Katie Hopkins…
I looked at a few tweets by that stupid “Susan Macpark” woman. A Scottish pseudo-“nationalist” who, however, supports migration-invasion by backward non-whites. Crazy. She often flings vituperation at others, either tweeting that their parents must despise them, or simply insulting their intelligence (despite the unthinking tweets that she herself puts out).
That Macpark bitch will not give a penny. Guaranteed.
As to “Jack Monroe”, I have no idea whether she will return to Twitter (more likely than not, because she can then plough on, publicizing her stuff to those who are unwilling to question; she will simply try to ignore the gathering storm), or whether she will just think “well, I have £2,000-£7,000 a month coming in from 600-700 mugs on Patreon, plus maybe another few thousand from other sources, so why bother with Twitter?“
An open question.

If only the blacks, browns, Chinese, and especially the Jews in our country would understand this.
There should be a cultural purge in the UK, starting (arguably) with the absurdly overpaid, smug, mass media football pleb-fest talking heads. Lineker etc.
As far as that specific building is concerned, I do not entirely agree. Architecture should be about both form and function. The form, in this case is (in my opinion) not so different in both cases, and I expect (though I have never been inside) that the function is better (for today’s purposes) in the replacement building. Admittedly, it is rather ugly, but so was, in my view, the building that it replaced.
Famous missionary explorer David Livingstone was a bit like that.
Imagine how many white English people would have been spared misery and/or murder had that creature been deported or killed off at an earlier stage.

“...and I can’t understand why she does it“? Really? how about “because she is getting £2,000-£7,000 a month for free, from (as of today) 667 mugs, for doing absolutely nothing but proclaiming that she is (in some unspecified way) ‘campaigning’ etc)”…
Yet the 667 mugs (as of today) are still paying out £3.50-£10 —or more— each month to her, incredibly.
“Oh what a tangled web we weave/When first we practice to deceive” [Sir Walter Scott, Marmion, A Tale of Flodden Field].
Ha ha! Incredible, yet at the same time almost inevitable. The “Bootstrap Cook” wanders lonely as a cloud through Southend or nearby, only to meet someone, by Fate or chance, who will no doubt (in this fairy-tale) “gift” “Jack Monroe” everything she needs or wants for the decoration of her new home.
Well, I am myself rather susceptible to tales of wonder and magic —and sometimes incredible “co-incidences” do happen— but, having now read a number of conflicting fantasies from the tweets etc of “Jack Monroe” (tweeted or said to interviewers over the past decade), I think it only fair and sensible to doubt this one (too).
So long as 667 mugs continue to shell out up to £10 monthly for absolutely nothing but to be part of the “Jack Monroe support echelon” or virtue-signal club, she will be laughing all the way to the bank (or the paint and wallpaper shop), even if (as no doubt will now happen) the msm “Bootstrap Cook” career on TV, radio, and in the Press ends, with the producers, journalists, and publishers running for cover (as I expect they already are).
The whole “Jack Monroe” supporters’ clan/defensiveness thing on Twitter reminds me of those who even now insist on wearing a useless facemask.
The allegation now is that “Jack Monroe” is using dozens of “sock accounts” to interact on Twitter while pretending to have left (having deleted, for the (?) time being her main “@BootstrapCook” account).
Seems plausible to me, looking at the myriad of Twitter accounts with zero or few “followers” that have popped up in the past days and weeks, all attacking critics of “Monroe”.
Saw an extract, about a minute long, of a TV comedy/drama called The Larkins, a remake or re-adaptation of the well-known 1980s series The Darling Buds of May. Except that the husband or boyfriend of one of the characters is now black! The series was set, originally at least, I believe, in the late 1940s!
Typical ludicrous rubbish.
We hear much about “cultural appropriation“, but our own culture and indeed history is being taken over, basically stolen from us. Behind all of this nonsense, really, is the (((you-know-who)))…
“Poland says it has asked to have US nuclear weapons based on its territory, amid growing fears that Vladimir Putin could resort to using nuclear arms in Ukraine to stave off a rout of his invading army.“
How stupid are they?
The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan aims to destroy the racial and cultural integrity of the European peoples by importing vast numbers of blacks and browns, who will then, over time, breed with the white European peoples, producing a black/brown racial group easily ruled over by the mixed Jewish/white stratum controlling the “Money Power”.
Already we see in the UK that that group has been at the centre of power in the past decade or so: David Cameron-Levita, George Osborne, Theresa May, “Boris” Johnson, to give only a few of the most obvious names.
The imported blacks and browns are willing to accept far lower living standards; already we read stories of 20 or more Indians or Pakistanis living in one house, working all hours for peanuts etc. Likewise, the NHS may be poor and declining in standards, but for the migrant-invaders, it still looks good, compared to where they have come from. The same in all areas.
We now have persons of Indian and African origin in the Cabinet. They have no real connection to European standards. Their origins naturally lead them to dismiss any rights for workers, any environmental concerns etc. Aliens.
“The Vatican Museums described it as “the act of a deranged person.” The statues were not severely damaged, according to the museum, though one of the busts may have lost a nose. The artwork has been sent to the museum’s restoration department.
Rome has been subjected to a number of acts of vandalism in recent months. In June, an American couple threw their electric scooters down the famed 18th century Spanish Steps, causing damage estimated at about 25,000 euros, according to the Italian daily La Repubblica. That same month, a tourist from Saudi Arabia wrecked the famous site by accidentally driving his Maserati down the Spanish Steps.“

MP Johnny Mercer’s wife, livid at Liz Truss sacking her husband a few weeks ago, called the new Prime Minister “an imbecile“.
Give that lady a cee-gar!
One often encounters people who “want nothing to do with politics” (as they naively protest). The problem with that is that you might end up (by default) being misgoverned by an imbecile such as Truss, not to mention her black/brown pack of idiots.
If Britain had fostered better relations with Russian over the past 30 years, Russia would be supplying us with cheap gas now, maybe even free or near-free.
I am not “allowed” (in our “free” country) to say…
Import the backward hordes, and you also import their politics and their ancient hatreds.
The knaves and/or traitors at a high level in Britain have, for over 70 years, permitted and even encouraged the importation into this country of backward hordes of various types. Those hordes have, since allowed in, been breeding prolifically. It already looks like an existential crisis not only for the British people but for Britain as a nation.
Meanwhile, the State regards all attempts by young Englishmen to gather together in defence of race, nation, and culture as a form of “terror threat”, to be stamped on by the police and security services.
Another “strange” (perhaps not so strange) anomaly is that quite a number of young Jews go every year from the UK, France etc to Israel to be trained in the use of automatic and semi-automatic weapons, as well as in Israeli techniques of street-fighting. The Jewish influence over the UK political milieu, as well as the police, means that this is regarded as not a problem for the UK…
I would in any case encourage all parents in the UK to homeschool their children. Many think that it is either illegal or very difficult. Not so. See https://www.gov.uk/home-education.
The cost, though huge, is not the main problem with this.
As to numbers, you only have to look. In 2018, “only” 299 actually crossed the Channel in small boats. Last year, 2021, that had grown to over 25,000, and this year is estimated to reach 65,000.
One or two well-publicized incidents of migrant-invaders being shot and killed in the Channel by the Royal Navy, and few would even try.
That, of course, cannot happen, not because of international conventions and/or similar bs, but because, as previously noted, the political system in the UK is wholly adherent to the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, to basically bastardize the peoples of Europe.
What Hitchens does not say is that almost all of the crowds were white English or at least British; very few blacks and browns. Pretty obvious why— this country, and its history and traditions, mean little or nothing to 99% of them. In a word, they are alien.
Speaking of journalistic effluvia, I saw a piece of fake Union Jack-waving nonsense from Andrew Neil last week, saying what a wonderful and united country Britain is, and how we should all be grateful and —implied, at least— not try to change it.
Andrew Neil used to be the best political interviewer around, and also a perceptive commentator, though he sometimes made the odd and silly rant on his late-night TV show, usually attacking “nazis” etc. Still, he was almost always worth watching or, to a lesser extent, and in the msm, reading. He has really begun to disappoint.
Incidentally, it is both amusing and pathetic to see the self-describing “Left” (I myself never use left/right labelling) angry (not angry really, of course, but just virtue-signalling) about the cost of the funeral etc of the late Queen.
The same idiots do not care that (already) several BILLION pounds annually is being wasted on the hotels, council housing, food, gifts, pocket-money and other things (eg NHS care) for cross-Channel migrant invaders, almost all of which invaders are entirely useless, and quite a number actively hostile and/or criminal.
Interview with the Iranian President
So here we are, 77 years after the end of the Second World War, after the bombing of Germany by the Allied forces (death toll 600,000-800,000), after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, after Vietnam, after the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan (hundreds of thousands killed), and after all sorts of other American transgressions, but when CBS 60 Minutes has a chance to interview Presiodent Raisi of Iran, what is the hot question? “Did the “holocaust” happen?“
The Iranian should have replied that no-one really claims that large numbers of Jews found within Reich territory were not detained, but most of those worked in industrial camps, and the majority that survived were released at the end of hostilities (and then went to various places, including Palestine, where they chucked many Palestinians out of their homes and took them over; stole their homes, if you like).
In fact, there is no credible evidence for much of the “holocaust” farrago, in particular the “biggest lie”, that about supposed “gas chambers”.
Any simple internet search will also turn up literally thousands of cases of “holocaust” fakery, hoaxes, fraud etc, from quite obscure examples to famous ones such as the supposed Anne Frank diary.
Once again, much of society runs scared from a condition which is taken care of in almost all cases by a couple of paracetomol tablets and a few days’ rest. Pathetic.
We tend to think (or used to think) that it was very odd that people, only a few hundred years ago, in the 15th and 16th centuries, were hounded and even executed for speaking in favour of a particular theory of cosmology or theology.
We in the West also thought, during the Soviet period, how odd that people in the Soviet Union or its satellites could be imprisoned, or even executed, for not going along with the “reality” imposed by a half-crazy regime.
Well, look now: many European countries imposing quasi-mediaeval laws against “holocaust” “denial” (free historical research and publication) at the instigation of the Jew/Israel lobby, while “Black Lives Matter”, “trans” activist loonies and others try to restrict freedom of expression in the USA, UK and elsewhere. Behind it, or most of it, “them”. (((Them))).
We know what has to be done, but are “not allowed” to express it openly.
Most of those girls would not have been exploited had they and society more reasoned “racism” and “discrimination”. Fact. As it was, though, they were bombarded from a young age by “anti-racist” propaganda. Behind much of it, at the strategic level? Yes, “them” (((again))).
It is still happening.
We must purge several milieux in the UK, starting with almost everyone and everything in the msm, both print and broadcast media. Not just journalist-liars and “commentators” all singing from the same basic hymn-sheet, but most comedians, many scribblers etc. Take away their rice-bowls. Close down the BBC and other TV stations. Eliminate the corrupters.
Looking at the Conservative Party leadership contest, I saw part of an interview with Suella Braverman. Unimpressive. Her knowledge-level is inadequate for the role she wishes to play. Indeed, many have said that she should even never have been appointed Attorney-General (and, with that, granted automatic letters-patent as Queen’s Counsel).
There was a time when any barrister who became an MP could apply to become QC, and be granted it on the nod, which is how otherwise unlikely barristers such as John Mortimer (the Rumpole writer) got the rank. Now no longer so.
Ironic in a way, that it is now more difficult for barristers who are MPs to apply for letters-patent to become “QC” when, for all other barristers, it has never been easier. About 10% of all practising barristers are now “QC”. Devalued, like most other ranks, titles, and honours these days.
Husband is one “Rael Braverman”. Jewish? She herself, though, identifies religiously with Buddhism, not with Judaism or her original Hinduism (mother was a Hindu, father may have been Roman Catholic, having originated in Goa).
Suella Braverman, though, must have been born under a lucky star in that, from being a run-of-the-mill barrister, she is now, only 7 years later, at age 42, in the running (in theory) to be leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister.
Drove over a cat, failed to stop, later claimed not to have known. Also showed his lack of empathy by “offering to buy a replacement animal“. What? “A replacement“?! You cannot “replace” a dear animal friend.
“The Hawas family, owners of the cat, did not want to speak in detail about the cat’s death, but a family member told the Daily Mail: “We just want to mourn our cat. We want nothing to do with Tobias Ellwood.” [Guardian].
One aspect of that report made me laugh, albeit bitterly, at the cretinous mindset of a possibly typical Conservative Party voter: “Julie Holland, 61, who lives opposite the former vicarage owned by Stephanie Hawa, also 61, was also not sympathetic to the MP. Holland, who owns a cat called Boris, named after the prime minister, and a dog called Stanley, after Johnson’s father, said: ‘It’s a disgrace. If he had done that to my cat I would have done something about it. But, she added: “I’m still a supporter.”” [Guardian].
“Results of latest Tory leadership knockout at 5PM: Blow for Rishi as bombshell poll finds frontrunner would LOSE to Liz Truss OR Penny Mordaunt in head-to-head ballot of party members – as MPs finish voting to decide who will stay in contest.” [Daily Mail].
Well, guess what? Most rank-and-file Conservative Party members would actually quite like to be led by someone who is English (i.e. white). What a surprise. They do not want a party leader or Prime Minister who is Indian, Pakistani, or African.
I wonder who these “activists” etc are? Probably “them” (((them))).
I have still not seen GB News. I doubt that I ever shall, or will ever regret not having seen it.
How? Mainly because there are groups or cabals working to destroy any vestige of national feeling in the young and very young. They have infiltrated the schools via the (often poor-quality) teaching staff.
Roma gypsies, hordes of them…
The Conservative party leadership contest is a classic example of a rigged “false choice” election. Not one candidate who is really social-national (even slightly), and most candidates Jew or non-white.
As I write, Alison Chabloz is once again incarcerated, and is on her 24th day of imprisonment in respect of a 22-week (in reality, 11-week, or 77-day) sentence recently imposed for lampooning Jewish behaviour in song.
Ursula Haverbeck: I have never even seen anything from “Prison Planet” Watson defending Ursula Haverbeck: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ursula_Haverbeck, though I concede that I rarely access Watson’s material, so may have missed something.
I have certainly never seen any sign of his having acknowledged the attacks that I myself have borne —and withstood— from the Jew-Zionist lobby:
I understand why someone such as Watson, making a living as a socio-political “influencer”, will want to keep his various social media platforms active, but there is a limit.
For me, Watson has in the past gone too far in trying not to seriously antagonize the Jew-Zionist lobby, but it could be argued, I suppose, that someone “deplatformed” has no influence at all. A balancing act.
Now the “antifa” and Jew-Zionist tendencies have joined forces to try to repress Watson. Their greatest joy, in that, would be to see him lose his YouTube channel, as well as other platforms, notably his Twitter account.
As previously noted on the blog, the self-describing “Left” (a term I never use baldly) has, since 1989, completely discarded any serious attempt to replace finance-capitalist society with something (anything) potentially better. Its adherents now have, as their highest aim, “deplatforming” those with whom they disagree (more accurately, those whom they —often irrationally— hate). Nothing more than that.
Repressors of free speech
Just came across a particularly toxic-seeming organization, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue:
As can be seen from its own website, that organization and its paid staff are interwoven with many other System organizations, from the UK governmental org, “Prevent”, to Tony Blair’s set-up.
The Western world is on several slippery slopes at present.
As often noted, the problem the voters have is that, both mentally and in practical terms, they are locked into a System “choice” which is really no choice: Lib, Lab, Con.

Quite. I had occasion to visit a small hospital (a routine annual test, not for treatment) a week or two ago. Not busy (they have no A & E). I was the only member of the public there, on entering the hospital, but there was a person standing there with a box of facemasks. He proffered one, using tongs, like an air hostess offering a hot mini-towel.
I thought to keep my disapproval light, so merely asked (in mock-surprise), “oh, you are still doing that?”, to which the mask-profferor replied, slightly censoriously, “this is a hospital“…
As to the hospital itself— deserted. In mid-afternoon. I saw one or two nurses around; literally one or two, no-one else. No doctors, no patients.
I found the place to which I was going. The staff there (two nurses) were very pleasant. They discovered that the administration had messed up the appointments again, they said (meaning the obviously West Indian girl on the telephone a few days previously, and who was based elsewhere— there are very few blacks in my part of the country, so far).
The nurses quickly sorted everything out, and I was out of the hospital 10 minutes later.
I wondered, as I walked over to the car, parked in the convenient (and temporarily free) car park, what on Earth has happened to the NHS. That hospital, never crowded, used to be fairly busy until the evening.
I heard a story from someone else in that vein. The difficulty of even getting an appointment to actually see a GP now, and the Kafka-esque goings on around mostly useless “telephone appointments” arranged by dragon-like receptionists. Also, re. that patient’s GP, who now apparently only bothers to work two days per week!
Does that GP get paid 40% of the average (I think) £120,000? So £48,000 a year for only two days each week?
Imagine what would happen if, suitably publicized, a Royal Navy vessel opened fire on a boatload of migrant-invaders. It would probably stop the cross-Channel invasion dead, so to speak. It will not happen, because the System wants the migration-invasion to continue. Israeli agent, the East African Asian Priti Patel, posing as Home Secretary, is just a monkey, not one of the organ-grinders. She puts up pathetic and unworkable “policies” from time to time, purely to bamboozle the simpler members of the public.
The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan is that Europe should become a continent inhabited mainly by mixed-race semi-Europeans, and ruled over by Jews and part-Jews.
The past three UK prime ministers have been part-Jew: Boris Johnson, Theresa May, David Cameron-Levita.
Nigel Farage is “controlled opposition”, and I think consciously so. The bastard revels in pulling the wool over the eyes of the plebs, none more so than those who used to idolize him, the UKIP, Brexit Party, and Reform Party cannon-fodder.
Farage can be put in the same bin as Toby Young, James Delingpole, Breitbart, GB News, all the rubbish that pretends to be pro free speech, national identity etc, but never says a word about Jew-Zionist conspiracy, and never supports those truly standing up for race and culture. Bin them all.
The international “sovereign debt” matrix is the biggest scam in the world, bigger even than the “early 1940s gas chambers” narrative and associated farrago.
What happened to the American (supposed) “right to bear arms”? Seems that the said small arms are just like nuclear weapons— they have them but are supposed never to use them…
He had days to think up something to say about his behaviour, and yet that was the best he could do.
“Tractors“? Worthy of a TV comedy sketch.
These are the twits who purport to rule over us as “legislators”; a bunch of freeloading, corrupt, half-educated, not very intelligent placemen and placewomen, all or almost all under the control of the Jew-Zionist/Israel lobby.
The language is remarkable, and rather crude, in places:
“Like a street corner spiv practising crude blackmail, Lavrov claimed there was a “considerable risk” such a war might go nuclear. Presumably he knows this because Putin is actually considering it.
Liz Truss, Lavrov’s British counterpart, dodged the nuclear question in her Mansion House speech – but went for the jugular. Her bold declaration that total victory, plus the liberation of all occupied Ukrainian territory including Crimea, was a “strategic imperative” for the west may have surprised less gung-ho Nato allies who foolishly didn’t realise she speaks for them.
Biden has repeatedly insisted the conflict will be contained. “Direct confrontation between Nato and Russia is world war three, something we must strive to prevent,” he said after the invasion began.
But war has its own deathly momentum. Daily acts of escalation point in one direction. Nato is like a patient in denial. The reality, by many measures, is that it’s already at war with Russia.
Perhaps future historians of the Ukraine conflict will map the path to wider conflagration in the same way academic predecessors traced the origins of the first world war.
It’s clear the west cannot abandon Ukraine simply out of fear over how far manic Putin might go. Such a collapse would wreck the global order, the UN, and Europe’s security. Yet the longer the war rages, the bigger the risk of a different kind of cataclysmic, world-changing event.
So here’s the choice, as the northern English say: piss or get off the pot. Either the western allies act decisively, right now, to halt this war by demanding an immediate ceasefire and threatening and, if necessary, launching direct military intervention to secure it – as previously urged in this space.
Or, alternatively, Truss, Austin and other hawks stop stoking the fire and setting unrealistic goals, and instead advise Kyiv to accept a negotiated settlement that, regrettably, will inevitably reward Putin’s aggression.“
Overall, urging war with Russia. Over Ukraine. A country with which no Western state is allied in any way. A country which has only been an independent country for 30 years.
This is madness. It needs to stop now, before escalation which might lead to massive destruction in Russia, in the USA, across Europe. Oh…and the almost total destruction of the UK, with its small geographic size, plenitude of targets, and inability to defend itself against nuclear missile attack. Cold comfort for the British people to know that British submarine-launched missiles might have also hit a few Russian targets.
The recently-imprisoned former Ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_Murray], has described the Guardian as being, these days, “the house journal of MI6” (SIS). If so, even more disturbing.

The mega-wealthy have been buying up UK farmland and country estates as well. Look on Rightmove or estate agents’ websites. Try to find large or medium-sized estates and farms in the UK for sale. Not many, and those that do appear are bought quite swiftly. James Dyson alone has been buying large tracts of land from Gloucestershire, through Oxfordshire and north-east as far as Lincolnshire. As for Scotland, few estates are for sale now.
Land is being bought as a long-term hedge. There is diminishing trust or confidence in currency, and in quoted or other shares.
I wonder how much else of what we are told about Ukrainian military capability is a mirage?
Fascinating to trawl back through Twitter, in that you see people tweeting this week the same sort of stuff, indeed often exactly the same stuff, that they were tweeting 4+ years ago. Pathetic. Pointless.
Saw one of my own comments, but on the GAB system, from nearly 4 years ago, from when (in mid-2018) I was expelled from Twitter at the instigation of a pack of Jew Zionists. Most of my tweets are now unavailable, but a few were copied and reposted, either by supporters or enemies, and so are still available, as are a few old GAB remarks (I do not bother with GAB now, nor with other social media platforms).
Still seems very arguable to me.
Ha ha! Below, another of my old tweets, reposted by some idiot angry that the Guardian scribbler Martin Belam used it in his semi-obit. piece about deceased and once-famous actor, Peter Wyngarde:
Interesting to see, now again reading that Guardian article online, that my above tweet and also a few others are now just blank spaces. Testament to the ever-intensifying censorship on Twitter.
Incidentally, I see from those old tweets about me, that yet another person who declared war on me (online) seems to have died (at least his Twitter account trailed off over 18 months ago, though only just now noticed by me).
That has happened to rather many Twitter twits, most of whom were just “me too” pile-on idiots who neither had had any direct contact with me at all, nor thought to behave decently, or just politely, in tweeting to, or about, me. Good riddance to them all.
In fact, at present a few other long-term, malicious, and venomous anti-Millard tweeters are presently in very poor conditions of health (which came upon them suddenly, it seems), and may not be around for much longer. As the Chinese proverb has it, “the stars in their courses fight on the side of the just“…
Putting it more lightly, #TenGreenBottles…

Meanwhile, the sinister part-Jew clown posing as Prime Minister stokes up conflict with Russia so that he can play the Poundland Churchill. The real Churchill was partly responsible for the start, and certainly for the continuing after 1940, of WW2. Will the “second time as farce” Churchill am-dram copyist, “Boris”, trigger WW3? If so, “goodbye England”…
I doubt that most French voters really know Macron’s full political and career background, in particular the Jewish cabal that has always pushed and promoted him.

The holy multikulti society programme must never be challenged. That’s why it happened as it did.
Exactly. There are supposed to have been nearly five million “cases” in the UK last week alone! Hardly anyone even felt unwell. The whole Covid scam “panicdemic” train has hit the buffers now. It has just become completely and hilariously nonsensical.
The social, medical, and economic results are, however, not at all funny.
Were I a dictator in power, I would hang Professor Ferguson, and some others, high high high…
…and if anyone gets angry at the MP-parasites, and so much as emails them to express that, the toytown police are at the door in a flash…So much for our “democratic” “freedoms”…
As frequently expressed previously, Russia should have been able to seize the most important parts of Ukraine swiftly, efficiently, and without massive damage or loss of life. Sadly, that failed miserably. Russia now has to fight for its own very future down the line.
The Ukraine invasion has become the Ukraine war. It is a ghastly bloody mess. I hate what has happened, and feel very sorry for those suffering, but Russia must now fight on, and win the eastern and southern parts of the country, come what may.
Putin must call up the three million reserve troops Russia has, and then just steamroller the Kiev regime.
Whether it be called Christmas or Yuletide, the essence is the same.
No more wars within the European family and, now that Sovietism has perished under its own weight, no more wars with Russia or the Russian people.
Quite right. In my several interactions with the UK police since I became more active politically online —in the past decade— I have come to realize, rather to my surprise, that the British police (often all-too-easily misled by the Jew-Zionist element) quite often have no idea, or proper idea, of the laws of this country, or of the liberties that still exist under those laws. As for knowledge of history, geopolitics, race and culture generally, forget it!
…and almost all the “civil rights” types, the (often Jew) “human rights” lawyers, the usual suspects of those and other sorts, as well as those working on TV, radio, or in the (again, supposed) “free Press” etc, backed the police state measures! Apart from those (such as me) not, or only peripherally, in the public eye, almost all of the self-proclaimed or supposed defenders of rights, “democracy”, decency, “freedom” etc went the same way, and became, almost overnight, sycophants of the police state. Or were they in reality always puppets of the System?
There have been a few well-known public figures or personalities who, in the past nearly 2 years of “Covid” socio-political madness and repression, have stood up for both liberty and the proper rule of law (law, not mere laws, in a “society under law” rather than a society merely “with laws”; even North Korea and Stalin’s regime have or had laws…).
People often do very wicked and/or cruel things either in the belief that they are not wicked, or because the measures taken are believed to be necessary in order to support a greater good, or to protect society, or an institution of society.
The execution of Giordano Bruno was 500+ years ago, but (to give only a few examples of the syndrome), electric shock therapy is still practised widely today; abuse of psychiatry for reasons of socio-political control did not stop with the Soviet Union and the Serbsky Institute [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbsky_Center] (Google, eg “Tavistock Institute” and “Tavistock Clinic”); and torture for allegedly “good” reasons has been practised even within the past couple of decades by the USA and other supposedly advanced states, as well as by the obvious examples such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and other Arab and/or Muslim states, North Korea etc.
“Prison Planet” Watson
I do not rate very highly, from the ideological or socio-political point of view, vlogger Paul Joseph Watson (for one thing, he never says anything critical of the Jew-Zionist cabals, or Israel, and never defends those under attack by those elements for dissidence, people such as Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, Ian Millard…etc), but credit where due…

The main reason people are still wearing facemasks in shops etc is because, at heart, British people are very law-abiding, at least usually and…when they think they are being watched…
Ukraine, as a fake “state” in the past few decades, is basically now, in terms of its set-up since 2014 especially, a Jewish-Zionist capture. The most important players in Ukraine, politically and economically, are Jews. The mass of Ukrainians are not of particularly high culture, and are easily fooled, ruled, and exploited, and they certainly have been…
For Britain, as part of NATO, to get into conflict with Russia about Eastern Ukraine, the eastern part of a territory inextricably linked to Russia for over 1,100 years, is absurd, and might lead to terrible consequences in the UK, should actual (strategic/continental) war result from all of this.
I would say “get Boris out!“, but most of those tweeting to that effect want Jewish-lobby puppet and false alternative Keir Starmer in Downing Street, together with Yvette Cooper, Rachel Reeves, and the rest. Nein danke!
There is no true democracy, or anything approaching it, in the UK.
(then the first ICBM landed…).
From the golden days of Hollywood…
They may not have had the technical resources of today but, at their best, they could really make films back then.
I think that I may have blogged en passant in the past about how I saw Bette Davis a few years before her death, when she was on the (I think) South Bank Show with Andrei Tarkovsky and maybe someone else as well; filmed at the South Bank Centre in London. That was about 4 years before her death. Sometime in the mid-1980s. In fact, despite her age, she outlived Tarkovsky, who died only a year or so later (1986), aged only 54. Tarkovsky had been only about 5 or 6 years old in 1938 when Jezebel was released.
The public were kept back (mostly not allowed into the building at all). Even inside, there was tight control. I was there just to meet someone else but I was introduced by a third party to the (British) chief of Bette Davis’s security (there was a whole expert team guarding her) and he said that I could stand there next to him as she came through with her “lady in waiting” and a couple of other people. An almost fossilized —and rather imperial— figure, aware of her status, rather like the last Queen of Naples.
It was amazing to see how various unwanted people, mainly autograph-hunters, kept trying to get to her, only to be expertly and diplomatically (though firmly) blocked by the guard team. One fellow even swung down (literally) from an external concrete stairway as a small side door was opened! He too was stopped, autograph book and pen in hand, and still tried to persuade the dinner-jacketed guard to let him through! All the while, the guard chief and I stood about 12 feet away, and Bette Davis + small entourage closer yet. Interesting to see. The chief of security remarked to me, as she passed by, something like “there goesa living legend“. A bit of a cliche, of course, but true.
I should say that Europe, including the UK, would be better if it had only a tenth of its present population, if that population consisted of ethnic Europeans with the right attitudes— traditional, yet willing to march into the future.
A fairly hard-hitting video by Paul Joseph Watson, “@PrisonPlanet”. I do not rate Watson very highly from the strict political point of view, but his interesting vlogs have awoken many, at least from unquestioning acceptance of the propaganda pumped out by the System.
This time, the crime involved crazed lesbians, one of which (the actual murderess) was from some (unspecified but looking at the photo probably Irish tinker-“traveller”) “gypsy” origin, according to the newspaper report.
Is there more of this sort of terrible abuse now, as compared to, say, 1960, or 1930? I do not know. The breakdown of society, and social norms, may be part of the problem, but there is a dearth of reliable information.
The cost of the panicdemic/scamdemic “measures”and relief
Conservative Party candidates have won every election for the seat since 1832 (the seat was not in existence between 1885 and 1983), and the Conservative Party vote peaked in 2019 at 62.7%.
Labour, though traditionally usually coming in in second place, came close to ousting the Conservative candidate in 1997; only about 4 points separated the top two that year.
In 2019, the Labour candidate received a vote-share of 22.1%, but the same candidate had scored 31.1% in 2017.
The Conservative Party vote-share has risen uninterruptedly since 1997, whereas the Labour vote has generally declined; the 2017 Labour vote-share was higher than in most years.
It follows that, should the “unthinkable” occur and Shastri-Hurst not be elected, the shock to the Conservative Party (and “Boris”) would be seismic.
Among the 14 candidates are Reclaim Party (the Laurence Fox vehicle), Reform UK (the latest Nigel Farage pop-up), the rump of UKIP, and Heritage, as well as Green Party and the LibDems, whose best result in effect (as Liberal Party) was a second-place 31.6% in 1983.
In the past, it was likely that serious tactical voters would go Labour rather than LibDem, Labour having the higher likelihood of success in the seat, but that is an open question this time. The bookmakers put the Conservatives and LibDems neck-and-neck, and it seems that confidence is not high in the “Boris” camp. Having said that, bookmakers are often a poor source for election predictions, their odds reflecting (mainly) bets placed, many of which are placed far from the constituency.
Naturally, newspaper reports such as that, showing that the LibDems have a good chance, tend to encourage tactical voting.
As to how much the Conservative vote will be impacted by the smaller quasi-conservative parties such as Reform UK, Reclaim, UKIP and Heritage, hard to say but probably no more than 20% altogether. Still, that notional 20% could be crucial.
Turnout is forecast to be low, not least because many usually Conservative voters seem to despise “Boris” and his misgovernment, and so, unwilling to vote Labour or even LibDem, may simply abstain.
My assessment? I think that the LibDems must have a chance, anyway.
The usual Conservative vote may not turn out (though many will have voted by post already), the overall turnout may be low (favouring other parties), the majority of voters in such a seat will never vote for post-2010 Labour, and the four smaller baby-con parties will tap votes which would otherwise go Con.
The LibDems are not quite as zealous about Covid “restrictions” and “measures” (such as the facemask nonsense) as are the present Government and its Labour “enablers”. That may help the LibDems.
The Conservative candidate is non-white (apparently half-English) in a 95% white English constituency, though that may be of only peripheral importance, looking at non-white “Conservative” MPs elsewhere. I had never heard of him until today but, reading about him, he seems to be very much a “head over heart” person; the voters may not warm to him.
There again, many people just want to give both the “Boris” circus and the Labour “enablers” (who have just saved the Government’s bacon yet again) a good kick. That has to favour the LibDems. Still, fairly open even now.
It will be interesting to see how misnamed “Labour” does, too. About 31% in 2017, but only 22% in 2019 (both times under Corbyn). Now, under “Covid” zealot Starmer? If Labour cannot get at least 20%, it will be significant.
[Update, 14 December 2022: well, the above analysis stood up pretty well: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2021_North_Shropshire_by-election. In the event, the LibDem won “a famous victory” (famous for 5 or perhaps 15 minutes) with 47.2% of the vote (2019, 10%). The Con Party candidate crashed and burned (31.6%, down from 62.7% in 2019). Labour came in third, with a mere 9.7% (down from 22.1% in 2019)].
So to get a peerage now, if you cannot donate a million to a System political party, you have to do noteworthy things such as…set up a charity or “good cause” which closes after a year or two with all its monies “gone” under suspicious circumstances, then fail to become either an MP or Mayor of London, and then…oh. that’s it, except that it helps to be black or brown these days.
At least Stuchbery has given up describing himself as “historian“. Now it is “journalist/content editor“…
A rigged contest between an incompetent government and the official opposition that is enabling most of that government’s dictatorial “Covid” laws and regulations.
I have blogged before about potential minority Labour governments which would depend on SNP support. Problem would be that the SNP would like another Independence referendum, or even actual Independence. The hypothetical minority Labour government could not of course grant the latter without a referendum. As to the former, the SNP would probably make the holding of such a referendum a sine qua non of any Commons support.
Were a Scottish Independence referendum to be held, and were the SNP to win a majority for breaking away from the UK, as soon as the break happened, there would be no SNP MPs at Westminster. That Labour government would then fall.
On the figures modelled, Labour could then govern with LibDem support, but recent elections have shown the Conservative Party far larger in the Commons than Labour. No SNP might mean no Labour government ever again. An interesting conundrum for Labour, if those modelled figures were to match electoral reality in the next 2-3 years.
That Tom Harwood person is obviously a “slithey tove”, and careerist, who is quite knowingly “controlled opposition”.
Pretty sad that a government can use the Whittys and Fergusons to give faked “credibility” to their agenda —or rather the agenda of a transnational conspiracy of which “Boris” and his clowns are mere puppets— and then use scribblers and talking heads to spread the fake news.
For some reason, far more hits on the blog today than usual; several hundred, in fact. The other unusual statistic is that two-thirds today are apparently from Germany, which is very anomalous. There are usually a few hits from Germany, but not hundreds! Deutschland erwache!?
For those who may be interested, this blog usually gets about 80% of its hits from the UK; the rest come from all over the world, though most are from the USA, Australia, and a few other countries (France, Germany, Canada, and —oddly?— China are usually represented). I have had hits from almost every country, even places such as Burkina Faso, Paraguay, and (once only, I think!) Antarctica. Perhaps Adolf, emerging from an Antarctic opening from the hollow Earth (by submarine or flying saucer?), with devotees of the Welteislehre! Only joking…
Early evening music
The atomization of the population, and the sophisticated tools now in use for repressing any collective political or socio-political dissent, may lead to a wave of “lone wolves”, unless a proper social-national movement comes into existence soon. That possible wave of lone wolves would be a pity, because only a social-national movement can save us.
Just imagine…that could, and in fact would, be President of the USA if Biden were to snuff it while in office! Still, look at Biden himself. Come to that, who are we to talk, looking at Boris-idiot, Gove, and the rest of that pack of clowns?
I would compare these venal MPs to members of another old-established occupation, but at least those others give their customers pleasure, and/or a presumably required service, and at least the public does not end up footing the bill.
I did not know that, not that that matters, I not being a voter in North Shropshire.
I have a better and more just idea, but do not think that I can express it. I might add that I am surprised that Griffin, a Cambridge graduate, cannot spell the word restaurateur.
Already, Oxford is very different to what it was, not in the time of Zuleika Dobson, or that of Brideshead Revisited, but to what it was in the early 1960s.
I recall going once or twice with my mother in or about 1962 to some kind of Oxfam volunteer thing on, I think, a Saturday (we lived between Reading and Wallingford, so not hugely far from Oxford). I recall tables strewn with donated clothing in some kind of church hall or the like. People were sorting them, I think.
I do remember fairly empty roads, even in Oxford itself. I think we drove past the famous meadow track where the 4-minute-mile had been broken in 1954; my mother remarked on it. Anyway, the point is that the city and surroundings seemed uncrowded, quite different to the congested Oxford of today, where driving and especially parking is a nightmare.
Inflation 5%…not very long ago it was about 2.5%. Then we have the “proposal” to increase the pension age more rapidly than had been planned before the “panicdemic”.
Still think that “furlough” payments, and the rest of the “Covid” madness, came at no cost to the individual citizen? Think again…
Incidentally, the hall where that noble performance of Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony was recorded, on 7 October 1944, was destroyed by Allied bombing only weeks, or even days, later. There is now nothing left of the Beethoven-saal but a few stones and a couple of plaques. Wikipedia has the date of its destruction as 1 January 1944, which is probably a mistake (it may have been 1 January 1945).
