“Jack Monroe”, the “Bootstrap Cook”: an assessment

I have blogged (briefly) previously a few times about the person known as “Jack Monroe” (originally Melissa Hadjicostas, half-Greek Cypriot), whose rather clever nom de plume is “Bootstrap Cook”.

The name Jack Monroe is now her official name, it having been adopted by deed poll.

In the past, I was content to be at least neutral towards “Bootstrap Cook”, in that I felt that anyone putting almost anything into the public domain that might help the millions of financially-struggling people in the UK deserved at least a chance.

This is what Wikipedia has to say: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Monroe; her own website is here: https://cookingonabootstrap.com/.

Incidentally, this blog is written in the English language, and therefore does not refer to a woman (whatever her views or proclivities) as “they” or “them”.

“Ideological” criticism of “Bootstrap Cook” has come mainly from two directions. The first group would be those connected to or supportive of the “Conservative” regimes of 2010-present. They tend to say that there is no justification for the campaigning of “Bootstrap Cook” to raise State benefits etc, and that any food poverty that exists exists because the individuals subject to it cannot “budget” properly, or do not know how to cook cheap wholesome food.

An ignorant point of view (though not without a small kernel of truth, as with many basically lying narratives), which infuriates many, especially when expressed by the likes of Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, the MP who has also been a huge expenses blodger and fraudster, and who claimed vast amounts on his Parliamentary expenses (even a £39 hotel breakfast) while —as Secretary of State for the DWP— taking money away from people living in real poverty.

The second group who tend to criticize “Bootstrap Cook” are those who agree with much of her campaigning on benefits etc, but who say that she actually “enables” attacks on benefit recipients by reason of her claims that a family of 4 can be fed well on £20 a week or less.

Now, however, a third group has joined the fray, being those who claim that they and/or others have been taken for a ride by “Bootstrap Cook”, and that she is a “grifter”, or even an outright fraud, who has sold goods and services which were never delivered. These critics also claim that much of the “Bootstrap Cook” back-story is untrue, or embellished.

For example, it is said that “Bootstrap Cook” was either never in poverty herself, or was so for no more than 18 months. It is said that at least part of her financial difficulties were caused by her own (apparently past) alcohol and/or drug abuse. It is said that she makes up implausible stories about her past financial predicament, such as “having to” sell her little son’s beloved dinosaur toy to raise money (really? How much money would that raise? £1? £2? And how cruel is that, assuming the story to be true?).

It is also said that her parents are not badly-off financially, that they own buy-to-let property, and that her paternal grandfather was a millionaire. In other words, that “Bootstrap Cook” always had a financial lifeline. I have no idea whether, or to what extent, that may be, or may have been, the case.

Recently, following a storm of criticism on Twitter, “Bootstrap Cook” deleted her Twitter account, though others claim that she is merely taking a 40-hour “rest” from Twitter, and will return. Why 40 hours and not (as with Jesus Christ) 40 days, or whatever, I have no idea.

One of my few blog posts which mentioned “Bootstrap Cook”: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/08/25/diary-blog-25-august-2022-with-a-few-thoughts-about-poverty-and-living-through-hard-times/.

One aspect that interested me, as a former barrister, was the tendency of “Bootstrap Cook” to threaten some of her critics with legal action. A few years ago, “Bootstrap Cook” sued Katie Hopkins in libel.

Ms. Hopkins had libelled “Bootstrap Cook” entirely mistakenly as to the facts, had no defence whatever, and should have backed down and got out with minimal damage when she could have but, like many maximalisti, found sorry the hardest word, and so was hammered: £24,000 in damages, and very large legal costs. Ms. Hopkins had to sell her house in St. Leonard’s (the best residential district in Exeter) in order to pay those legal costs.

“Bootstrap Cook” retained as her solicitor Mark Lewis, the Zionist Jew who now lives in Israel, though he has also a professional foothold in London. His no-win no-fee cases have often been controversial.

I have blogged about Lewis in previous years, most recently in 2019: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/11/update-re-mark-lewis-lawyer-questions-are-raised/.

I have to wonder how nice a person “Bootstrap Cook” is, if she is on friendly terms with someone such as Lewis.

As soon as people started suggesting, a month or two ago, that “Bootstrap Cook” was somewhere between “grifter” and fraudster, out came the Twitter threat that Mark Lewis and libel would be wheeled out (frankly, not so much of a threat— by no means have all of Lewis’s cases been brought to a successful conclusion, and when he was censured and fined by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority about 4 years ago, his Counsel said that his fine should be reduced because his only possessions were his clothes, a mobility scooter. and a private pension worth £70 a week).

In fact, when “Bootstrap Cook” threatened libel action against Conservative Party MP Lee Anderson [Con, Ashfield] (in May of this year), nothing ever came of it, as far as I know:

Food journalist and activist Jack Monroe hinted at legal action against Anderson after he commented in an interview that “She’s taking money off some of the most vulnerable people in society and making an absolute fortune on [sic] the back of people”.[36] [Wikipedia].

It may be that Anderson will face legal action, but I have certainly not seen any news about an action having been launched. See https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/may/15/food-writer-jack-monroe-sues-tory-mp-claims-she-makes-fortune-poor-lee-anderson; and https://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/20141345.southends-jack-monroe-sue-lee-anderson/.

The Guardian says “sues“, but the Independent said “hints at suing“, and I have seen nothing on the Mark Lewis Twitter output to the effect that he ever was “instructed” (the Guardian, again) on the matter. He may have been, he may not have been. I might add that all the news reports are from 15-16 May 2022; nothing since then.

Was Anderson right, though? As I have said, I was willing to cut “Bootstrap Cook” some slack, because in recent years, the past ~15 years, the social security system has become inadequate, pay for work has also become generally inadequate, and millions are struggling both to eat and keep sheltered and warm. My view was that any useable advice was, well, useful.

I still think that (despite the fact that, to me, many of the recipes of “Bootstrap Cook” do look like a dog’s dinner, and despite the fact that many disagree with her costings etc).

More serious criticism is that she has actually been making a pretty good living out of Patreon donations, while never or rarely providing the extras offered in exchange.

When I last looked, “Bootstrap Cook” had at least 800 Patreon donors giving a minimum of £1 a month. £800 a month. In itself not bad. When you consider that the suggested minimum is £3 a head, the total increases to £2,400 a month (perhaps). I have seen a tweet where the tweeter claims, truthfully or otherwise, to have been donating £44 a month. Well, you see the point. “Bootstrap Cook” must have an income from Patreon alone of between £800 and (?) perhaps as much as £8,000 a month. Or more. That’s before one takes into account book sales, other donations, paid (?) TV appearances, other appearances etc. We do not know.

Not that “Bootstrap Cook” claims poverty, these days. No, she claims, as I understand it (and perhaps truthfully) a degree of “precariousness” in her life and finances, and she is certainly not alone in that. It is almost the norm in the Britain of 2022.

“Bootstrap Cook” has a number of defence mechanisms. One is to threaten defamation actions, but the more usual tactic is to claim the shield of disability, and she has about two dozen options there.

A further defence tactic is, I read, to set her fanatical fans (she apparently calls them “flying monkeys“) onto any critics, and I have certainly seen tweets where mentally-disturbed fans have come close to suggesting violence against anyone daring to utter critical words.

The problem here is that “Bootstrap Cook” has become a totem for a certain tribe of virtue-signallers. Not really “the poor” but more the sort of people who like to think that they are socially-progressive etc. Facts do not matter to those people, belonging to the “right” tribe does. cf. “Covid”, Ukraine, “Black Lives Matter” and, of course, “FBPE/Remain/Rejoin” etc.

When you consider that someone who claims to be able to feed a family of 4 for £20 a week might be said to be, arguably or in effect, saying that UK benefits are perfectly OK and need not be increased, is that really something positive or not?

Some tweets seen about the issues raised:

It is better to be a little naive than very cynical, but the world makes it hard…

As many have noted, this whole Bootstrap Cook thing is more like a creepy cult than anything. It’s as if a lot of fairly affluent or at least not poor people have decided that supporting “Bootstrap Cook” —right or wrong— validates their evenings of going out, their Netflix subscription, their holiday in Cuba or Costa Rica, their new cars, and in fact their whole comfortable existence.

In fact, it reminds me of the “indulgences” sold by the Roman Catholic Church before the Reformation.

Not that that is necessarily the fault of the “Bootstrap Cook” herself.

Look at the loonies below, believing what they want to believe:

Well, if you can believe that the “royal” Mulatta is a sadly-abused “princess”, then believing that a poverty campaigner, who seems to be making “a nice little earner” out of it and naive followers, is a modern Joan of Arc, must be easy enough.

Well, that’s enough. There are hundreds of other tweets in similar vein.

As blogged previously, my view is that Bootstrap Cook’s stuff may well be of interest to many, though —as already said— much of it looks to me like carbohydrate-heavy food often presented like a dog’s dinner.

I do not think that “Bootstrap Cook” set out to defraud anyone, and it may be that she has no such intention now, but it does seem that legitimate questions about her fundraising have been asked by a number of donors, but not answered by her.

If people think that they are somehow accomplishing something by subsidizing the not-uncomfortable lifestyle of that person, then that is their business, in a sense, but it is legitimate for others, arguably more clear-minded, to ask “where is the money going?“, “is any of this true?“, and “are people being tapped for money under false pretences?“.

I can also see that her fans seem to be, almost entirely, not the truly poor but more those who are not “poor” but who support her “non-binary” profile, the “gender bender” aspects, and the general “government must do more for the poor” activism aspect.

I think that it is legitimate to question, not only “where the money went” (or goes), but also whether, in reality, whether Bootstrap Cook has actually influenced government, or large enterprises such as ASDA (it seems that one or two supermarket chains were actually paying her for advice or consultancy or something).

Poverty is a huge problem in the UK now. Anyone claiming to be expert in it must expect searching inquiry.

Is this all really just a morning TV virtue-signal writ large? After all, at the end of the day, the decisive question is what government does or fails to do.

I personally have no animus against “Bootstrap Cook”, but my view of her has certainly become far less positive over the years since I first heard of her.

I do think, also, that if you claim that a person can feed healthily on £5 a week, you are really playing into the hands of swine such as Dunce Duncan Smith, Esther McVey, Therese Coffey etc.

I think that anyone wanting to help “the poor” could probably do so more effectively via GoFundMe or local foodbanks than by subsidizing the lifestyle of “Bootstrap Cook”. Perhaps I am mistaken, but that is my firm view and opinion.

On a wider point, we have in the UK this msm thing whereby TV channels or shows like to have a “go-to” list. Brexit discussion? Call Farage. Free speech discussion? Call Toby Young. Poverty discussion? Call Jack Monroe. And so on.

Thus you get “activists” who are really just “famous for being famous activists”. The Caroline Criado-Perez phenomenon. A hundred thousand or a million Twitter followers but, outside Twitter etc, really unknown and without real influence.

Of course, the msm now like to feature (supposed) “experts” who are, if possible, young, female, and black. “Bootstrap Cook” is not black, but as “Meatloaf” once opined, “two out of three ain’t bad“…

Well, there it is. I prefer to concentrate on other and larger issues really, but felt that I should examine the above first, after the recent Twitter storm in a teacup.

All that the doomed “Conservative” Party had to do, to consign Labour to the bin, was select a leader to succeed “Boris”-idiot who was even slightly competent. It failed to do so. Endex.

The implications are clear: either the Con MPs get rid of Liz Truss as soon as they can, and put in someone who at least looks semi-competent, or the Con Party will be near-finished by next year. Same goes, of course, for Kwarteng, Cleverly, and Coffey.

TV detective drama

I, among others, including recently Peter Hitchens, have written about how NWO/ZOG propaganda is now embedded in TV dramas, “soaps”, ads etc. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/.

A good example was seen the other night. A new detective drama called Karen Pirie.

Set partly a few decades ago, partly in the contemporary era, even the older setting, in St. Andrews, Scotland, decades ago, had a black character appear. In a small town in what seems to be a bleak part of Scotland (I have never been there). Then we are introduced to the two detectives now investigating the cold case. One a small Scottish woman, the other a black or half-caste…

I do not have a great deal of patience with films or TV shows. If they do not catch the interest after 15 mins, switch— OFF. I gave this one 20 mins. A bloody bore, poorly conceived and worse-acted.

This evening, I saw an old episode of Wycliffe [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wycliffe_(TV_series)]. All characters more or less credible, and what I like best about Wycliffe is that it manages to catch the atmosphere of Cornwall well, from what I recall from when I lived there. It does not rely on cliche (most of the time, at least).

England, my England

I was sent the following short video by a regular reader and commentator on the blog.

Worth watching. The comments below the film (if seen on YouTube) are also worth seeing.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NCS:_Manhunt]

It seems that the plan to demonize people like the character in the film backfired; the BBC has never shown the series again; neither is it available on DVD.

Sea level rise

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/aug/10/east-antarctic-ice-sheet-in-our-hands-climate-action

Interesting report on the situation in respect of the main ice sheets, namely the East Antarctic, West Antarctic, and Greenland.

It seems that, were they to melt completely, the global sea level would rise by 7 metres Greenland Ice Sheet), 5 metres (West Antarctic Ice Sheet) and East Atlantic Ice Sheet (52 metres). A total of 64 metres, or in my preferred metric, about 210 feet.

A sea-level rise of 210 feet would be truly apocalyptic, even though it would probably take place over several hundred years.

The UK has an average height above sea-level of about 531 feet, but within that is a peak of 4,413 feet (Ben Nevis) down to towns and cities at, or close to, sea-level.

For example, much of London would be flooded in that scenario: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest_points_in_London.

On a less apocalyptic level, if the Greenland Ice Sheet were to melt entirely, which might (or might not) happen by 2100, that would result in the seas rising by up to 24 feet, in itself enough to drown a large number of major cities around the world.

I once lived at Little Venice, London, which I believe is about 60 feet above sea level. Much of Central London as well as the Thames-side areas would be flooded by a 24-foot rise.

My problem with many of the predictions is that they are made with an agenda, to make people believe that some kind of “zero-emissions” strategy, even if carried out only in Europe, or even only in the UK (the UK being responsible for only 1% of global emissions) would halt the melting of the ice of the poles. I doubt it.

The world is in a state of constant change, sometimes gradual, sometimes catastrophic. Humanity lives on the surface of events which it can do little to alter.

The most ridiculous story of the month?

A crowded field, but I nominate the declaration by unpleasant comic Eddie Izzard that he is now a “woman”, and henceforth demands to be termed “her” and “she”. Possibly even more ridiculous, even the supposedly reactionary Daily Mail has complied with the demand: see https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11100935/Eddie-Izzard-takes-inspiration-Zelensky-fresh-bid-MP.html.

The Mail goes on to describe the Jew dictator Zelensky as “a comic who becomes a good leader“. “Good leader“?! Ha ha!

More seriously, once you start lying about such basic things as what actual sex people are, truth, which is the foundation for any decent society, starts to ebb away; with it, that foundation also ebbs away, until nothing works properly, and nothing can be relied upon. Britain is already some way down that path.

London. Zoo.

USD $1.5M between 8 litigants. Even after costs, they will surely end up with over $100,000 each. Not bad for being notionally “offended” by an order that was rescinded an hour later. More “diversity” madness.

Ellwood is always in the forefront of attacks on Russia. He was a junior officer of the Green Jackets before he was transferred to the Reserves, taking up the rank of Lt.-Col. in the secretive 77th Brigade: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tobias_Ellwood; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/77th_Brigade_(United_Kingdom).

The Wikipedia entry mentions that Ellwood was born in New York City, and was also at school at Bonn and Vienna before attending Loughborough University (course unknown to me), the Cass Business School at City University in London, then Sandhurst.

Ellwood’s parents’ work is not mentioned in Wikipedia, but we can probably assume that it was diplomatic, or linked to diplomacy. Both Bonn and Vienna were, at the time, capital cities, and there is a British Consulate-General in New York City.

It seems that all that expensive education has been wasted on Ellwood. Does he really not see that conflict with Russia might lead to war with Russia?

I suppose that Russian forces would not waste a nuclear missile on Ellwood’s decaying Bournemouth constituency (he himself lives in a wealthy semi-rural enclave called Holdenhurst), but in the event of war, Russian missiles would more or less raze much of England to the ground. Goodbye to the Palace of Westminster, and almost everything else, in that event.

Attacks on Russian aviation in Crimea, in Belarus etc. The war may be about to enter a new phase, should the Russian forces be ordered to retaliate.

The Zelensky regime is trying to create provocations, because it knows that the only way it can avoid defeat in this war is to bring in NATO (NWO) forces on the Ukrainian side. Already, the arms shipments from the USA and UK have reached colossal proportions, and, bearing in mind that the arms, ammunition, and training are all being supplied free of charge, represent something that is not only a proxy war against Russia but also not far from being an actual or direct war against Russia.

So far, the NATO/NWO backers of the Jewish regime in Kiev have not attempted, at least publicly, to rein in the behaviour of Zelensky and his clan.

This is madness. The UK and other states have already weakened their economies and societies by the pursuit of the “Covid” “panicdemic”, shutting their economies down for months and years. Now those same societies are facing gas shortages and a huge rise in price of oil and gas.

The UK, after nominal Brexit, should have opened up friendly relations with Russia on a broad front, including supply by Russia to the UK of cheap or even cost-price gas and oil.

The fact is that those presently ruling the UK prefer to conspire with their fellow NWO operatives, implementing the strategic assault on Russia, and such other parts of the NWO/ZOG agenda such as the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, rather than putting the needs of the British people first.

Inadequate sentence

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/man-fed-neighbours-cats-poisoned-27709264

A man has admitted feeding poisoned tuna to his neighbours’ cats in the first case of animal cruelty to be referred to a crown court.

Tristian Paul Pearson, 44, left out tubs containing fish tuna and a high concentration of ethylene glycol.

The substance is highly poisonous to felines and is contrary to the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

Two cats living nearby – Luna and Bailey – later had to be put down after eating the tuna and falling sick.

Pearson, of Bargoed, Wales, pleaded guilty to an Animal Welfare Act offence and was handed an eight month suspended prison sentence.

It was the first case of its kind to be referred to a crown court.”

[Daily Mirror].

What on Earth is the point in giving the courts a higher possible maximum level of punishment if the sentencing judge refuses, in effect, to sentence harshly enough in a plainly serious and premeditated case of cruelty such as this one?

In reality, not theory, 8 months but suspended, handed down in the Crown Court, is less of a punishment than the previous maximum of 6 months (3 months actual imprisonment) that a magistrates’ court might have imposed.

Absolutely pathetic sentence.

Tristian (?) Paul Pearson, of West Street, Bargoed, Wales. Evil bastard.

Trial backlog

I happened to see a case which illustrates the backlog in the “justice system”, a backlog caused almost entirely by the “panicdemic”.

A policeman in Hampshire has just pleaded not guilty to a sex crime allegedly committed in January this year. His case has been set down for trial at Isleworth Crown Court on 4 December 2023, nearly 2 years after the offence is said to have been committed and 16 months after committal proceedings.

For those who have not encountered “eminent domain”, that is a doctrine in U.S. constitutional law that is akin to the British “compulsory purchase”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eminent_domain_in_the_United_States.

Even more striking when you see it laid out like that.

Ukraine

Kiev-regime forces using elderly and disabled people as human shields:

The United Nations said Ukraine’s armed forces bore a large, and perhaps equal, share of the blame for an assault at a nursing home in Luhansk, where dozens of elderly and disabled patients were trapped inside without water or electricity. At least 22 of the 71 patients survived, but the exact number killed remains unknown. A few days before the attack, Ukrainian soldiers took up positions inside the nursing home, making the building a target, the UN said.” [MSN News].

Meanwhile, NWO puppet and Jew dictator, Zelensky, has sacked a number of Ukrainian ambassadors, including the one in Berlin.

David Davis

There are rumours that David Davis may offer his candidature for the position of leader of the Conservative Party, and so Prime Minister.

About 14 years ago, in 2008, I opined, in a restricted-circulation study, that David Davis, who had previously lost out to David Cameron-Levita in the Conservative leadership contest, might well still achieve ministerial, or possibly even prime-ministerial, rank.

I was right as to the first, though it took him another 8 years; as to the second, the office of Prime MInister, that is far less likely, but not impossible now.

Davis may be less obviously or, rather, self-publicizingly, intellectual than one or two of the others in the contest, but is no dummy, all the same.

Davis has points which few if any in that contest at present can match.

First, Davis is of real British origins (not black, brown, or Jew), which at present only 2 out of 9 declared candidates can claim: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_Conservative_Party_leadership_election_(UK)#Candidates.

Second, Davis has proven principles and integrity, unlike all but (arguably) one or two of the presently-declared candidates (Penny Mordaunt being one).

Third, Davis is a staunch supporter of free speech and freedom of expression, unlike most if not all of the presently-declared candidates.

Fourthly, Davis has real grit.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Davis_(British_politician)

I should say that, comparing Davis to the presently-declared candidates, he is the only one with the mix of attributes that might make him an acceptable Prime Minister (albeit within the System).

I hope that David Davis enters the contest; if he does, he might just win, if only as an acceptable compromise candidate.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10998745/Susan-Michie-claims-Tories-sit-hands-let-Covid-rip-cases-set-hit-350-000.html

Seems that evil pseudo-Communist hypocrite (and heiress) Susan Michie is again pushing for the facemask nonsense etc to resume.

Only a tiny handful of people are (and ever have been) seriously unwell (of “Covid” alone), but the faked “cases” pile up (in the equally-faked statistics).

I recall when all this nonsense started, over two years ago. Panicked reports from Italy and China and, the very same day that it really hit the news agenda, a film (a drama, fictional) on TV about…a virus starting in China that spreads death across the world. A film put into the TV schedules weeks or months in advance. Makes you think…

As to the maniacs like Michie and Ferguson, wanting a return to the unnecessary and hugely damaging “lockdowns” (shutdowns) and facemask nonsense (and other nonsensical measures), see below:

Incidentally…

Total hospital admissions are climbing, with patient levels nearing the peak reached during the previous wave of infections in spring. However, only a fraction are primarily ill with the virus, suggesting the rise is a reflection of high rates of transmission in the community, rather than severe disease.” 

[Daily Mail]

[Daily Mail]

Actually, “Covid” has become the go-to excuse for organizations not functioning properly: banks, local authorities, NHS, all using it as an excuse to cut services and opening hours.

As for people wanting a few days off work, a cold will not cut it, but a supposed positive test for “Covid” will do fine, even though the symptoms are very similar now. Madness, but that is, to a large extent, Britain in 2022— mad.

More around the Boris-idiot Cabinet of clowns

There are those still in, or promoted to, Cabinet, who would surely never have reached Cabinet-ministerial rank under anyone else but Johnson. Take Priti Patel, saved from spending her life behind the counter of an Indian grocery shop in Uganda by her parents having relocated to the UK in the late 1960s.

Would Priti Patel reach Cabinet-level under any other Prime Minister? Well, yes, in the past (before her limitations were so well-known), in that Theresa May first appointed her to Cabinet. However, that was soon seen as a mistake.

Hard to see Priti Patel being even a minister, let alone a Cabinet Minister, after this year. That’s the point, and that is why she will defend Boris-idiot to the end.

Others? Liz Truss, smug and unpleasant Kit Malthouse, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, the Jew Shapps, Therese Coffey, Nadine Dorries (obviously); others yet.

That collection of moneygrubbing deadheads will cling to office whatever it takes. Boots will have to stamp on their fingers to get them to let go.

Ben Wallace was a strange Secretary of State for Defence, one who seems to know almost no Second World War history, or perhaps takes his “knowledge” from Jew film-makers such as Spielberg.

A period, an extended period, of silence from Wallace would now be welcome, especially about Ukraine and Wallace’s drunken wish to go to war with Russia.

Saturday quiz

Well, this week I again trounced political journalist John Rentoul, scoring 8/10 as against his poor 4/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2 and 10.

In the interests of transparency, I should admit that I gave myself a point for question 7 despite not getting it exactly right (I thought 6 x 4 inches); close enough though, imo.

Martin Amis, that smug, and hugely-overrated, scribbler?

In fact, Bone is not always wrong, but his manner is, usually.

As for Andrea Jenkyns, she not only screamed, like the fishwives of legend, at protesting crowds yesterday, but actually stuck a finger up at them; neither the action of a serious politician nor that of a lady.

Most of the serious Conservative Party politicians, or at least those who take themselves seriously, have left the sinking Johnsonian ship of state. Left aboard are the deadheads, complete idiots, nobodies, and the “who he?” and “who she?” MPs, so obscure that even I, who take an interest in who’s who at Westminster, am at a loss and have to look them up on Wikipedia.

Part-Jew/Levantine poseur and chancer “Boris”-idiot now intends to cling on at Downing Street as long as he can, until removed.

I have still not discovered whether it is within the rules of the 1922 Committee for Johnson to put his own name forward for election as Conservative Party leader. I know that leaders who lose a vote of confidence among Conservative Party MPs cannot stand again, but “Boris”-idiot recently won a vote of confidence.

As blogged previously, if Johnson put his name forward, he might, even now, find himself one of the top two on the ballot, with many other candidates splitting the vote.

In that circumstance, the vote would then be a matter for Conservative Party members, choosing between two candidates. Johnson might win. If he did, he would have another two and a half years as Prime Minister, potentially.

This is a full-blown political crisis now. My main concern, beyond the effect on the country itself, is that there is no social-national party to take advantage of that crisis.

You can see why the ZOG/communitarian UK police are becoming hysterical at the prospect of what they are pleased to call
right wing terrorism“, meaning outbreaks of revolt among the British population.

Meanwhile, the egg from which “Boris” hatched, part-Jew bully and fake, Stanley Johnson, having been given £3.4M for his, in reality, far less valuable house (by the HS2 people, but effectively on government instruction, in order to keep “Boris” sweet), has (like the rootless part-Jew cosmopolitan he is) not only abandoned the UK (he has fled overseas to live in France), but has also taken on foreign (French) citizenship. He is also entitled to Israeli citizenship, which he may or may not have requested.

…especially if social nationalism can then soar aloft.

Very alarming, but that neither proves that the warming is (or mainly is), man-made, nor that the cause is (or mainly is) CO2 emissions, nor that anything concrete can be done, in view of the fact that the world is overpopulated, and that means overpopulated by those of Asian and African origin.

The world population has more than doubled since 1970, and the bulk of that has been in China and India, with other Asian and African countries also contributing.

The world population must be reduced to a far smaller figure, perhaps 20% or even 10% of where it now is, and the remaining population should be mainly European in terms of race and culture.

If the above reduction in quantity, and increase in quality, can be done, the foundation will have been laid for a quantum leap in human evolution.

The stupid Huffington Post failing to point out that mass shootings in the UK have always been “vanishingly rare“: only three have ever happened in the UK and, of those, one happened in the 1980s (Hungerford), one in the 1990s (Dunblane), and one (in Cumbria) in 2010, i.e. after the prohibition laws of 1997.

The hysterical 1997 (anti-) gun laws in the UK are yet another example of law not only made to immediately satisfy whipped-up public opinion, but also law behind which is little thought or knowledge.

I blogged about these matters after the Brenton Tarrant spree killings in New Zealand, three years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/03/25/the-new-zealand-attack-and-related-matters/.

The Huffington Post or HuffPost is a very poor “news/comment” outlet.

I have just now seen that a HuffPost report about me is now (online version) illustrated by a 2-min video of some completely other person giving a talk at what looks like a Labour Party meeting! Is that meant to be me?

https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/barrister-ian-millard-disbarred-over-anti-semitic-tweets_uk_58134c3ee4b04660a438f7da.

I might add that that 2016 report, penned by one Steven Hopkins, is no better than semi-literate.

Talking about poor/inaccurate news media: after I was wrongfully —and actually unlawfully— disbarred in 2016 (see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/), the Independent published a one-sided account of the matter, and also a photograph of a barrister, robed, smoking a cigarette. A neck-down photograph. It was published as if the person shown was me, but in fact I have never smoked cigarettes, and always wore far better shoes!

Conservative Party leadership

Seems that even some, even some msm political journalists, are divided on whether “Boris”-idiot has actually “resigned” as Con leader or not; if not, then he could stand immediately for the leadership, again:

More tweets

Indeed. On the other hand, there may be a race-and-culture aspect. Will enough voters disregard the fact (if it is a fact) that the new Conservative Party leader is (if he or she is) black or brown?

I would say that, in the affluent south of England, and in pockets of affluence elsewhere, very many voters will do almost anything to preserve the supposed value of their houses and other assets, and so will vote “Conservative” even if the party leader is an Indian or other non-European. It may be a very different story in the “left-behind” areas of the north of England, Wales, degenerating coastal towns etc.

It may be, that in much of England and Wales, many voters simply will not vote for a party whose leader is non-European.

Starmer is, of course, English, and the fact that he is a puppet of the Jewish lobby and (almost identical) Israel lobby is “caviar to the general” for most voters; it goes over their heads.

Even if only, say, 10% of voters are swayed by such considerations, those aspects may be key in a close fight.

Ha ha! Au contraire, in my view.

When people say that about Boris-idiot, they are not just talking about his shambolic 3 years as PM, but the equally crazy preceding couple of decades, including his two times as MP (for different constituencies), his disastrous failure as Foreign Secretary, and his spell as Mayor of London.

Quite.

I have come to realize, or realize anew, and more pointedly, that the vast bulk of British people, at least, are easily manipulated, fooled, and ruled. The 2+ years since the start of the “panicdemic”/”scamdemic” have made that glaringly obvious. Law, constitution, civil rights, Parliamentary “democracy”, decency, all easily rolled over by a conspiracy of a relative few in government and msm, most of whom probably themselves believe at least some of the lying propaganda they shovel out over the country.

Is he wrong? I think not.

I had not previously heard of this particular MP. Her background: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehenna_Davison. Leaving aside Brexit (which I favoured but which was ruinously executed from the start by the Conservative Party idiot-ministers, including “Boris”), she seems to be in favour of simplistic cut-throat capitalism, which is a pity, because more MPs should have her less than silver-spoon background (in her case, working intermittently when younger in a Pizza Hut, a betting shop etc).

I doubt that she will be an MP for much longer.

Part-Jew, and former desk officer in the Army.

Hm…”self-sufficient“? Not in the EU or UK, where farmers are a heavily-subsidized industry.

If they don’t sign up to all that scheiss, they don’t get far in the System political world. The trans nonsense is just part of it, together with climate change via CO2 emissions, anti-“racism”, pro-Jew/Israel-ism, the multikulti society, the various “Covid” nonsense(s) (facemask nonsense etc), and so on.

Stray thoughts

The “Boris” departure yesterday: what a quasi-Levantine pack of nonsense, with the new-ish wife, and small child, wheeled out for the approval of the various guests and hangers-on. Why did “Boris” not expostulate “eez nice…nice“, in the manner of the late Bruce Forsyth, or sundry Mediterranean restaurateurs?

The UK was once quite renowned for the probity of its administrative and political system, even when the politicians were not intrinsically very honest (in some cases). Now? More than a whiff of the Orient, or the old East European ghettoes, permeates our politics and civil service.

“Ukrainian” “refugees” in the Cotswolds

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-gloucestershire-62061084

More than 700 Ukrainians have been given a place to stay in Gloucestershire under the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

The government initiative allows UK residents to sponsor named Ukrainian nationals, with more than 1,000 applications received in the county.

Excel fled Ukraine when Russia invaded and said the Gloucestershire community has been “really helpful”.

[Ecce “Excel”, the supposed “Ukrainian”]

Excel, who worked as a gynaecologist and cancer specialist in Kyiv, has so far been unable to find work in the UK, but said that since moving near to Stroud, “everyone has been really friendly”.

He said he planned to just go to west Ukraine with his wife and mother-in-law, but they were forced to keep going until he hit the Polish border, a journey that would normally take six hours, but ended up taking four days.

[BBC News]

So…he “hit the Polish border“, and then suddenly found himself in…the Cotswolds…

I wonder how many of the dwindling audience of the BBC actually believe this horseshit?

Anyway, that’s one house in Gloucestershire (either now or soon) which will not be available to struggling British people…

Why could he not return to his native Nigeria? Rhetorical question, of course. He has no intention of ever leaving the UK.

Jessica Simor

I see that the tiny but well-funded Jew-Zionist cabal known as “Campaign Against AntiSemitism” [“CAA”] has now turned its attention (attempted bullying and/or intimidation) to Jessica Simor Q.C.: see https://antisemitism.org/caa-submits-complaint-against-barrister-who-declared-on-twitter-i-hope-no-jew-will-stay-silent-on-this/.

I have in the past criticized on my blog, though I hope mainly humorously, Jessica Simor, a strong opponent of Brexit, an equally strong supporter of the EU, and a one-time candidate for political-joke party, Change UK. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Change_UK].

A fairly typical well-heeled Hampstead pseudo-liberal.

Having said that, I think that Jessica Simor has the right to say or tweet more or less anything she likes on social, political, religious, racial, scientific, or historical topics; as I do, or should do.

Incidentally, Jessica Simor never said a word to defend my free speech rights, neither when a pack of Jews calling themselves “UK Lawyers for Israel”, closely connected to (almost identical with) the “Campaign Against AntiSemitism”, complained about me to the Bar Standards Board, which is now the Bar “regulator”, nor since that time.

As a result of that malicious Jewish/CAA complaint, I was disbarred (as it now turns out, not only wrongfully but actually unlawfully) in late 2016, some 8 years after I had in fact given up Bar practice.

I had not practised law for 6 years prior to the Jews’ complaint (2014), and for 8 years prior to the actual Bar Disciplinary Tribunal hearing (late 2016).

The complaint against me to the BSB was (((typically))) both malicious and vindictive, and aimed at a wider strategy of expanding Jew-Zionist influence and control over all professional regulatory bodies in the UK. A couple of the Jews involved were quoted in newspapers after my disbarment, crowing about their triumph, and about their strategy generally.

My experience in respect of the above is contained, in part at least, in this post from my blog: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

See also: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3881726/Barrister-thrown-profession-anti-Semitic-tweets.html; and https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/barrister-ian-millard-disbarred-over-anti-semitic-tweets_uk_58134c3ee4b04660a438f7da.

The “CAA” Jews have continued to make all sorts of (((typically))) malicious complaints about me over the years, some under CAA aegis, some while posing as private Jewish “victims”. Examples? See, for example, https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/, a malicious complaint against me to tame Essex police, and made to co-incide with that Bar Tribunal hearing. “They” obviously wanted, metaphorically, not only a pound of my flesh but also my blood or, to put it less poetically, to pile pressure onto me, relentlessly (as they hoped).

The CAA goblin responsible for the Essex complaint should have been prosecuted for wasting police time but was not. I suppose he just had to stand a few rounds of drinks down at “the lodge” later. He’s still at it now (see below).

That complaint failed, but the “CAA” goblins did not give up. As recently as last year, 2021, I had to bat away one of the same pack of Jews who have been plotting against me for years: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

As I said above, Jessica Simor (whom I had thought was herself Jewish or part-Jewish) is now in the gun-sights of the CAA cabal. They do attack Jews, in fact, if said Jews say anything, however slight, that criticizes Israel, Zionism, or typical Jewish behaviour. Jews persecuted by the “CAA” have included, inter alia, the jazz musician Gilad Atzmon, and the journalist Mira bar-Hillel.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilad_Atzmon; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilad_Atzmon#Libel_case; and https://pressgazette.co.uk/mira-bar-hillel-says-fellow-uk-based-jewish-journalists-wont-speak-out-against-israel-fear/].

So there it is. Jessica Simor and her fellow denizens of the Bar never said a word to defend my free speech rights, but I am defending hers despite that. I am content to occupy, yet again, the moral high ground…

#MoralHighGround.

Is that tweeter suggesting that Jews own Hollywood? What a terrible “antisemitic trope”…

He will have the “CAA” goblins on his tail…

I think that I prefer my own analysis (see above, near top).

As I said a year ago, Kim Leadbeater is a useless System-approved drone, who has done (as predicted) precisely nothing for the people who voted Labour in that by-election, which she only won by about 1 point anyway.

“Boris”-idiot has pretty much trashed the chances of the Conservative Party, but I detect no enthusiasm at all in the public mind for the sort of System-Labour represented by Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer, and Labour-label drone MPs such as Kim Leadbeater.

The public are left with no party they really like. Ergo, step in the meaningless LibDems, as “dustbin party”, and/or fake “alternative”. I regret that there simply is no social-national alternative at present.

…and the cross-Channel migration-invasion is only a tiny part of the full migration-invasion by all routes.

Britain 2022— a dustbin full of trash.

Halal and kosher are both cruel and backward habits or customs of —speaking very generally— cruel and backward peoples, but we should not be too quick to cast the first stone: our own European methods of slaughter of animals are also often cruel or brutal. We should do what we can to make the death of food animals much easier, less frightening, less painful, if we are going to continue, as a society, to consume meat.

One notices on Twitter the desperate urge of many to play the “victim”, as in “whine whine, I tested positive for Covid, whine whine“. Some of the Jews on Twitter are really hysterical about it, and some non-Jews are just as absurd.

I never liked Anne Diamond anyway. The sort of person who is (or was) on TV mainly because she knows (or knew) people. Opinionated but not at all educated.

Is he the one who later got so fed up with her that he slapped her, and she called the police? I think it may have been. Somewhere in Oxfordshire about 30 years ago. I think that the slapper (him, I mean, not her) got a police caution for the admitted offence.

I had no idea that Anne Diamond was still alive, let alone still on TV (even if only on GB News which, like most people, I have never watched, even once).

Background information: https://www.thefreelibrary.com/THE+FIRST+WIFE+OF+MIKE+HOLLINGSWORTH%2C+54%2C+BREAKS+HER+15-YEAR+SILENCE…-a065120672; and https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-3103999/I-ve-old-fool-says-Anne-Diamond-s-ex-12-weeks-marriage-cost-home-100k-Jack-Russell.html.

Makes you wonder, about the well-paid (read “bribed”) cretins who retail NWO/ZOG propaganda to the masses.

System-approved drones yap on about “diversity” (which means no white people, or maybe just a few token whites).

Layla Moran, the bucktoothed “pansexual” LibDem MP, who got away, years ago, with slapping, punching, and kicking her then boyfriend. What a load of trash inhabits the Palace of Westminster these days.

Ukraine: latest news from the main current battle area

Latest word is that the persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter has been released from prison on licence.

A trip to London

I now live in a coastal part of southern England. However, for many years, on and off, I lived in London; from 1976, when I was 19, to 1998. Various neighbourhoods in both South London and near-Central London. Lee/Blackheath, East Dulwich, Tulse Hill (briefly), New Cross (briefly), Holland Park/Shepherd’s Bush (briefly). Mostly, though, in Little Venice; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Venice.

[the Lagoon, Little Venice]
[Regent’s Canal, Little Venice, a few minutes’ walk from where I once lived]

London was always busy, of course, always fairly full of traffic etc, even in 1976. All the same, it was a functioning city that was also mostly English.

I was last regularly in London in 2002, when I was leaseholder of chambers in Gray’s Inn, ironically in part of the same building in Gray’s Inn Square where I was later, in 2016, wrongfully and in fact unlawfully disbarred: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

At that time, meaning in 2002, I lived for six months just outside London, at Higher Denham, Buckinghamshire, and travelled in daily from Denham Golf Club halt to Marylebone, a swift journey taking 20 minutes or so. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denham,_Buckinghamshire; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denham_Golf_Club_railway_station.

London in 2002 was still recognizably the same city it had been in the 1990s and 1980s, for all the many changes. Now? I think not.

Yesterday, it was necessary for me to travel to and through London. My first visit since I spoke at the London Forum in 2017.

The train journey to Waterloo was all right, bearing in mind that, for the first time in many years, I travelled Standard Class (i.e. Second). £27 one way (a discount ticket, bought online via Trainline). Included my onward journey to Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. Not bad value, anyway.

The train filled up at Southampton, partly with quite a few Chinese. Is that something to do with Boris-idiot’s invitation to the Hong Kong Chinese to settle here? I do not know.

The train was reasonably comfortable, and the cool air-conditioning pleasantly powerful.

Arriving in London, I noticed how the skyline and cityscape has changed even since my last visit, five years ago. More tall residential buildings. I noticed out of the windows the once-prominent but now rather less noticeable bulk of Century House, the one-time SIS/MI6 HQ, now housing expensive apartments.

Exiting the train at Waterloo, I made the fateful mistake of avoiding the Underground for the connection to Marylebone, and opting for a taxi.

What on Earth has happened to London? There were at least two demonstrations impeding the traffic, including one by flag-waving anti-Brexit cretins in Whitehall. Nearby streets were full of literally thousands of Chinese and other tourists. Hundreds of police. Dozens of parked and moving police vehicles. Scruffy-looking uniformed police standing around laughing and joking with each other. Sirens everywhere. Just a dystopian hell.

To make it worse, Edgware Road was also blocked by police for some reason, but my driver managed to get police permission to go another route to the rest of the traffic.

At Marylebone Station, I was in another non-English world. Back in the 1980s, early 1990s, Marylebone was a pleasant, and most of the day seemingly deserted, traditional station. Now, white walls, white flooring, and coffee kiosks selling the stuff at £3 or £4 a pop. Hordes of travellers (most foreign). I heard little English spoken, but just a wave of jabbering in Arabic, various Eastern European tongues, even Hebrew (not that I speak it, but I know how it sounds).

Marylebone Station has become what Houston Stewart Chamberlain said of the Mediterranean, “a chaos of peoples” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Foundations_of_the_Nineteenth_Century].

The train to Oxford via (inter alia) Gerrards Cross, my first destination, was a small, three-carriage diesel. Rather pleasant, but too full. Not everyone got a seat. Again, most were not British. Not a bad journey though. Little more than 20 minutes and we were there. What a relief after the crazy chaos that is Central London in 2022.

It does the soul good to experience what is left of the beauty of the real English countryside, though. Later in the afternoon, I was driving through the area of Culham (Oxfordshire). Seems too beautiful an area to have a nuclear research station, but there it is.

When will the teenage secretaries and sentries of 1944 USA, and the UK, be prosecuted for “facilitating” Hiroshima, or Nagasaki, or the carpet-bombing of Germany? Never. Same goes for those who served Stalin, even those who were in the NKVD.

Ukraine

The Western msm now awakening to reality. Kiev-regime forces east of the Dnieper are, as predicted on the blog, running out of fuel, ammunition, heavy armament, perhaps food as well. Russian forces have taken Severodonetsk and are closing in on Ukrainian forces in several places, though the Ukrainians seem well-embedded defensively in some areas of the Donetsk region.

The above map shows the state of play as of yesterday (24 June 2022).

I have predicted previously that Russian forces would move up from the Sea of Azov coastal zone to Zaporozhye, Dnipro, and then northward, following the river to somewhere southeast of Kiev itself. Meanwhile, once the Donetsk and Lukhansk areas are secured, Russian forces will move west and northwest from there, as well as west/southwest from Kharkov, once, or if, Kharkov is in Russian hands.

If that is done, the bulk of Eastern Ukraine will be in Russian hands. Kiev will then be threatened again.

The pockets of Kiev-regime resistance here and there have not, so far, amounted to a counter-offensive. Even in the Kiev area, Ukrainian forces moved back into previously-occupied areas only because Russian forces left. The prisoners exchanged on both sides so far amount to several thousands, however.

It is for the Russian General Staff (the “Stavka“, in traditional terminology) to decide, if the above turns out that way, whether Kiev or Odessa is the greater prize. Psychologically, and in terms of propaganda or public relations, Kiev; however, Russian capture of Odessa and the remaining Black Sea coast would choke off any possibility of large-scale Ukrainian grain exports, or any relief by sea.

At any rate, it seems clear that the tide of war has changed in favour of the Russian forces.

[Roma Gypsy professional pickpocket Vasilka Stancheva]

A woman has been jailed for one month after stealing medicine from an elderly woman at a busy London tube station.

Vasilka Stancheva, 22, was caught by British Transport Police officers in plain clothing rummaging through the pensioner’s handbag outside Oxford Circus station.

The crime occurred on Wednesday, June 15, at roughly 5.20pm.

At the time, the 22-year-old was wearing a leather jacket and blue hat. She used the accessory to block the view of her right hand as she rooted around in the woman’s rucksack.

Ms Stancheva then proceeded to steal the elderly woman’s medicine, as well as her gold purse.

Within 24 hours she was charged with attempted theft, and put in front of Westminster Magistrates Court.

There, she was sentenced to 28 days in jail.

A month earlier she was caught using the exact same tactic on another person, where she again targeted and lurked behind an elderly woman on Tottenham Court Road in the West End.

For her first offence, she was charged £369 – and spared time jail.”

Now look look again, with more scrutiny.

Firstly, the Daily Mirror has seen fit to omit the very obvious fact, looking at the criminal’s features, skin colour etc, that said criminal is a Gypsy from Central or Eastern Europe.

Secondly, look at her practised technique, as reported. This is a professional pickpocket, but the Westminster Magistrates’ Court has seen fit to sentence her to only (in reality) a couple of weeks in prison.

Westminster Mags was the same court in which persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz was sentenced to a far longer term simply for lampooning Jewish behaviour in cartoons, sketches, and song.

The court seems to have twice treated “Ms. Stancheva” as if she were some misguided young person who had made an uncharacteristic mistake of some kind. In reality many of the Roma and other similar Gypsies of Eastern Europe intensively train their children from an early age to commit certain types of crime. A predatory tribe, known throughout Europe for centuries.

I have seen examples myself, and seen Home Office reports about it (when I was a practising barrister in the early/mid 1990s).

Why did the court not properly take into account the previous conviction, only weeks before the latest one?

Incidentally, it is clear to me, reading between the lines, that “Ms. Stancheva” was captured not by chance but because police surveillance on the Underground noted her Gypsy appearance; she was obviously tailed and observed closely, and finally arrested.

What kind of deterrent to her and other Gypsies (and other non-Gypsy malefactors) is what amounts to a two-week sentence? Odds-on, the creature will be back “at it” within weeks.

Incidentally, also, I would bet my shirt on her living in London social housing paid for, ultimately, by the British people; I bet she also gets various State benefit monies that should be reserved for (real) British people.

You ask “why did people vote Leave, years ago“? In reality, to get rid of evil trash of this sort. It has never happened.

Were I in a position of power, I would look at covertly or otherwise eliminating social cancers from our national life.

I blogged about a slightly similar case about 30 years ago, in which I was not so much a participant as an observer: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/08/03/first-steal-a-chicken/.

Starmer is, in a sense at least, an even worse political joke than Boris-idiot.

A good example of the kind of box-ticking socio-political madness around: “pardon” people dead for hundreds of years, convicted under the laws of a very, almost completely, different society to Britain in 2022. Nothing concrete accomplished, just pointless virtue-signalling on social media.

Exactly. Take the UK, which is already short of electrical-generation capacity. If every car were electric, from where does all the electricity come from?

Exactly. Labour, the only (supposed) “alternative” to the equally-misnamed “Conservative” Party, is not seen as something positive or very good by most voters.

Ha. Wouldn’t you know it? The smug hypocrisy of Trudeau and his kind. Why can the Canadians not get rid of him?

Lithuania, Kaliningrad, and the NWO/ZOG push for war with Russia

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10934333/Russia-warns-actions-against-NATO-member-Lithuania-blocking-sanctioned-goods.html

Here we see the weakness of a structure such as NATO.

One for all and all for one” (the motto of The Three Musketeers) sounds very gallant, and does provide a member-state with greater security (knowing that all members will pitch in if only one is attacked), but has this weakness: that if a member-state, even a tiny and (dare one say?) insignificant one, picks a quarrel with a neighbouring state (however large and powerful that neighbouring state may be), and if, as a result, the large neighbouring state then takes military action against the little state, all NATO members are obliged to take arms against that large and notionally “aggressor” state, despite the fact that it is the little member-state that has caused the problem.

I do not want to be too hard on the Lithuanians, who suffered much under Sovietism, and during the Second World War, and who were helpless victims of great-power strategic moves during much of the 20th Century, but this latest action by the Lithuanian government could trigger a third world war if allowed to get out of control.

It is also, from the point-of-view of Lithuanian self-interest, an action of stunning stupidity. After all, should NATO and Russia fight in that region, even using conventional weapons, which country is likely to be flattened first? Quite…

Or was this Lithuanian action the result of orders from secret sources in Washington and/or London?

We have been here, in a sense, before. On 1 March 1939, the governments of France and Britain gave “guarantee” to the government of Poland, pledging to “support” Poland, were Poland to be attacked: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Polish_alliance#British_assurance_to_Poland.

That “guarantee” was in fact worthless: “The British Chiefs of Staff at the time however noted that ‘we could give no direct help by land, sea or air’.” [Wikipedia, citing History Today].

Nonetheless, a mere 5 months after the proffering of the worthless “guarantee”, and when Germany invaded Poland in September 1939, Britain and France declared war on the German Reich despite not being able to assist the Polish government in any practical way.

Stupidity, or malice? At any rate, thus began the Second World War. As for Poland, instead of being invaded and badly damaged once, in 1939 (invaded by Germany from the west, and the Soviet Union from the east), it was later also a battleground in 1944, as Soviet forces pushed west into Central Europe.

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaliningrad; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6nigsberg; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithuania (Lithuania is almost exactly half the size of England, or between a quarter and a third of the size of the whole UK, but has only 2.8M people).

I wish not to see Europe, including the UK, devastated by a third massive war, and on an even more destructive scale, but it seems that the political puppets of the NWO/ZOG matrix have other ideas.

I have no idea what the circumstances were, but the tweeter has a point. There are too many jobsworths, too many compromisers, and too many people all too ready, for careerist reasons, to kow-tow to the forces of Evil (posing as the Good), as I remarked yesterday with reference to the fact that not one barrister helped me or gave one word of support when I was (not only wrongfully, but actually unlawfully) disbarred in late 2016: as to that, see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

Bar the odd minute or two, same with me.

There are exceptions, of course, but speaking in broad-brush terms, the blacks cannot create a civilization, cannot maintain one without help and guidance (look at the former colonies) and, all too often, cannot even live in one without being a destructive or nuisance element in society.

“Boris”-idiot runs the government of this country in a shambolic, inept, and corrupt way, just like some fraudulent Levantine part-Jew, part-Turk. Why is that? Oh, no, wait…

As for that weird little Jew, Fabricant, if his claim that he was once some kind of SIS agent (or officer? Surely not?!) is correct, then it does tend to support the view that “British Intelligence” is unfit for purpose.

Is this the moment in history when the West actually goes mad?

Brings to my mind the day when I met the Metropolitan of Kiev, the second-ranking bishop of the Russian Orthodox Church. That was in the early 1980s, in London. A diminutive person with a beard seemingly almost as long as his body. He gave me a bottle of export Moskovskaya vodka (now sadly all-but-unobtainable in the UK, and I think not even manufactured in its original version).

That was also the first time I saw kefir. The Metropolitan was drinking it at breakfast in his small hotel, the De Vere, a place in Kensington High Street, and used quite often by the not-far-away Soviet Embassy.

I heard some ridiculous little bastard, a “Conservative” MP, on the pathetic BBC Radio 4 PM show yesterday, bleating about “smugglers”. We should be deterring the migrant-invaders first. As to “people-smugglers”, there should be ordered a covert operation to kill them.

I would make a heartfelt suggestion, but in view of the police-state repression now existent in the UK, I shall keep it to myself for now.
