Well, in view of the fact that, per head, and thanks to subsidies from England (in effect), Scotland’s population has about 20% more spent on it as compared to the population of England, that is unsurprising. Try keeping that level of service going when Scotland achieves its faux-“Independence” (if it ever does).
Seems as if at least one moneysaving expert has missed something in the past few months…
Get rid of the brainwashing, and the brainwashers.
It is amazing, when one thinks of it, how much of that which we take for granted as the backdrop of our lives is actually relatively new in the world. After all, the American “Wild West” was in the 19th Century; the American Indian wars (effectively a genocide) around the 1870s. Only about 150 years ago.
Likewise, much of Africa, though partly known in outline to Europeans for hundreds of years, was only colonized and developed over the past 150 years or so, and some only over the past century or so.
Australia, as a European colonized development, only goes back a couple of hundred years or so. As for Antarctica, its very existence was unknown until a Russian ship spotted it in, I think, 1808.
Radio— as a mass product, in the past century; TV— for most people, since the 1950s; Internet etc— for most people, since the mid-1990s, not even 30 years ago.
I personally do not have much confidence that our present form of civilization and/or society will last much longer. I am now 66, meaning that it is moot as to whether I myself shall be able to contribute directly to the creation of a new society (rather than merely inspiring “our unconquerable (ideological) children“) to create anew.
It may be, that it will only be possible to lay down the basis in this incarnation, akin to planting a seed, with the expectation that the seed will only germinate at a later period of history, when we shall reincarnate in order to carry through the project to a victorious conclusion. We may have to accept that.
Take away the fake titles from them, at least. She is a mulatta, who was previously married to a Californian Jew business parasite; “Harry” is as thick as two short planks, and mentally unstable. Both hate Europe’s peoples. Reduce their pretensions to rubble.
Constitutionally moot, but I take that tweeter’s point.
The “role of Government” changes along with circumstances, or should do.
I do not know what I despise more about Therese Coffey— her callousness, or her stupidity (read my assessment above); perhaps even more than those, her sense of (completely unmerited) entitlement.
As Lenin said, “a revolution without firing squads is not worth much“.
Labour has no real answers to Britain’s problems, but this present government is just so useless that it would take a miracle to save it, looking at its deadhead ministers, about which the public is surely now fully aware.
In my opinion, using that situation (assuming that it is true) to deflect questions about the money she is alleged to have taken from vulnerable people, and in return for basically nothing. “Jack Monroe”/”Bootstrap Cook” has already tweeted (in order to fill up her Twitter timeline with supportive messages) about 1. polishing a copper kettle, and 2. her new hairstyle.
It seems to me that the “Bootstrap Cook” has been dropped by most of the msm now, but wants to hang on to those (as of today) 641 Patreon mugs, all paying her between £3.50 and £44 a month, every month.
The puzzle is why the mugs do it, now that the facts are becoming better-known.
I myself have no idea whether “Jack Monroe” is so mentally disturbed that she scarcely knows the truth from untruth, or whether she is consciously “pushing the envelope” quite often, and actually mocking her “patron”-mugs by making up ever-more outrageous untruths; examples would include pretending to have been involved in investigating the Grenfell Tower fire, and boiling down soap to make shower gel and so (supposedly) save money.
“Prosecutors said those detained formed a ‘terrorist organization with the goal of overturning the existing state order in Germany and replace [sic] itwith their own form of state, which was already in the course of being founded.’
The suspects were aware that their aim could only be achieved by military means and with force, prosecutors added.
Some of the group’s members had made ‘concrete preparations’ to storm Parliament with a small armed group, the prosecutors said.“
An interesting straw in the wind. In 1923, the “Beer Hall Putsch” in Munich was regarded by many in Germany with derision, yet less than a decade later, Hitler and the NSDAP were in power.
The idea, put about by well-publicized “enablers”, that a person can be fed on about £5 a week, is just nonsense. Even leaving aside the need for a balanced diet, with many vitamins and minerals, a pack of cheapest pasta is (I think) about £1, which might last someone a couple of days. The cheapest sauce would be at least £1, even if you made it last a week. That leaves £3 for everything else. Bread for a week must cost £1 if not £2. What else could you get? A jar of peanut butter? A pack of cheap butter? A couple of pints of milk? A couple of bunches of bananas?
While having little income (at first no income at all), I had to find food for myself while also finding a new contract (job), while somehow travelling around London (mainly to the City of London from Holland Park “borders”, near Shepherd’s Bush). I have to admit that it was hard going and, without being too detailed, I concede that I did “cut a few corners” here and there. Needs must…
He expected an Albanian, a diplomat at that, to “answer a straight question“? Ha. Hope truly does “spring eternal“, at least in rhetoric.
The clip(s) show a few examples of the “elected” cretins who rule over us.
Lee Anderson is not exactly my kind of MP, but I prefer him to the likes of Diane Abbott.
Ironically, the contrary might be the case, if it means that the Border Force (or Border Farce) take a break from “rescuing” (ferrying to the UK) the migrant-invaders in the Channel. Assuming that the weather becomes more stormy.
True, but private soldiers and junior NCOs do get or can get free or subsidized accommodation, food, transport etc (unless that has changed; I believe that it was the case, anyway).

Weird LGBTQXYZ types buying babies for some kind of vanity, or from crazed wish-fulfilment motives. Has to be wrong.
A great part of the problem in the “West” is that those very pillars of liberty under law have been eroded, largely by the embedded Jew-Zionist element. It may be objected that other elements are also involved, and guilty, and that I do not deny, but the main rot in the whole system is the Jewish-Zionist element.
A Jew-Zionist dictator, whose government is admitted by its own spokesmen to be “80% Jewish“. A dictatorship that has closed down opposition parties, imprisoned or killed dissidents, closed down trade unions, and attacked Russian civilians in the Donbass for 8 years. The Jew Zelensky also has several opulent villas in the West, including one valued at USD $40 million in Florida. A complete puppet of the NWO.
“Jack Monroe” was going to sue, said the (((occupied))) Press, not only Lee Anderson but also the political commentator Martin Daubney, at least one of whom (Lee Anderson) had implied (indeed expressed) on TV that “Jack Monroe” is a fraud: he actually said “living off the backs of the poor“. I could not have put it better myself.
Well, here we are, nearly 7 months later, and there has been no action launched; nor even any pre-action correspondence sent.
Lee Anderson has already said that he has heard nothing from the woman or her lawyers (if any), despite the Press claims from May 2022, which seem to have been uncritically supportive of the egregious “Bootstrap Cook”.
While, technically, that leaves “Bootstrap Cook” with another 5 months to bring an action, I think that it is reasonable now to opine that there will be no defamation suit by “Jack Monroe” against Lee Anderson.
However, that is not the whole story: “Jack Monroe” asked people in general and her “supporters” in particular to send money to fund the (so far, non-existent) legal action. She implied also that her solicitor would be fanatical Jew-Zionist solicitor (based in Israel) Mark Lewis, about whom I blogged extensively some years ago: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/11/update-re-mark-lewis-lawyer-questions-are-raised/. He himself has not tweeted anything about having been instructed or consulted on the Lee Anderson matter.
Now people are asking about where went the crowdfunded monies raised (assuming that there were some). “Jack Monroe” has not explained. The reasonable assumption, surely, is that she has had at least some monies from that source, but has either retained the monies or simply spent them.
It is a moot point, on those premises, whether “Jack Monroe” has committed a fairly serious criminal offence.
A black woman in Bristol is presently awaiting trial on what seem to be similar facts, involving a crowdfunding appeal for projected lawsuit(s).
The police and/or State regulators should be investigating all of this.
Likewise, as of today, 641 total mugs are sending “Jack Monroe” between £3.50 and £44 a month via the Patreon website, supposedly in return for goods and services never provided.
That’s anything between £2,300 a month and £30,000 a month (gross). “Not a bad little earner“…
“Jack Monroe” has taken money from, inter alia, the “poor” and vulnerable and, when asked to refund monies for non-performance, has refused, or has ignored the requests; on occasion, she has even insulted some of the poor and suffering people concerned.
“Bootstrap Cook” was promoted online by Nigella Lawson, it seems, though “that was then”. Not recently, as far as I know.
(is that last tweeter a so-called “sock account”?)
Why are quite a few other msm types, though —even after the recent intensified storm around her— still promoting this person?
The strange thing is that mugs such as tweeter “@friendofsnoopy” seem to imagine that they are actually accomplishing something positive in socio-political terms by subsidizing the lifestyle of “Jack Monroe”. Very odd indeed. A psychologist might find the pathology of such pointless virtue-signalling interesting.
I note, also, that “@friendofsnoopy” still has a Twitter profile photo of herself wearing a facemask! The facemask nonsense is so yesterday…
“@friendofsnoopy” says that what “Jack” “does” is key for her. What she means is more like “what ‘Jack’ says she does”… It now turns out that her interaction with the Office of National Statistics and others amounted to nothing but one brief meeting with the ONS, not even noted because entirely unimportant; the same with other organizations. “Jack’s” aim was obviously to have such 5-minute “meetings” in order to be able then to tweet about them for years: the so-called “meetings” were obviously (in my opinion) merely and planned props in what others have called her “grift”.
Anyone can tweet or write “you can save money by buying cheapest pasta from ASDA or ALDI“, let alone something akin to “here’s a way to make a cheap dinner: a tin of chickpeas, a tin of peaches, and some curry powder. Mix, and heat.” Mahashma Gandhi?
Also, this constant “you too can live off a few pence a day” nonsense just reinforces the false idea that State benefits (and private pay) are sufficiently generous, if not too generous.
Meanwhile “Jack Monroe” laughs at the mugs who subsidize her, buys Tiffany ear-rings (£1,000+), by her own admission drank, in recent years, a bottle of whisky a day (she now monetizes even that, by virtue-signalling her supposed year or so of “sobriety”), and is alleged to be, or to have been, a considerable abuser of cocaine (admittedly, I have no evidence as to whether or not that is or was so).
All the same, look at the facts: several thousand pounds, possibly several tens of thousands, via Patreon each and every month, £24,000 (plus legal costs) from her Katie Hopkins libel action award, somewhere around £100,000 from book royalties in the past decade, other donations, paid Press and TV interviews and appearances, deals with ASDA etc to promote their stuff. Large amounts of money, and it has been claimed that “Jack Monroe” now has as much as £200,000 stashed away, yet she still “cosplays” the poverty thing, as if she is living on a few pounds a day.
At root, rent is the fruit of parasitism. People work to pay rent, but the rentier lives parasitically from that rent, i.e. from the work of the rent-payer.
I was once, in the early 1980s, somewhat acquainted with a wealthy property-developer who lived in West Sussex. His wife was a novelist of sorts, and had been published (by a real publisher, not via Amazon self-publishing or the like) several times. This in fact was well before Amazon; her first novel had been published around 1980 or slightly earlier.
Apparently, when her first book was accepted, that lady was asked to the publisher’s office. He congratulated her, and then counted out £600 in cash on his desk as an advance; she never earned any more from it. Not a fortune even 40+ years ago. Her later novels earned her even less. Fortunately, with a wealthy husband, that did not matter so much.
The “@AwfullyMolly” Twitter account is well worth reading.
Out early in the car today. Listening for a while to Radio 4 Today, I was amused to hear the presenter, in a piece about the ridiculous Michelle Mone, talk about the “Covid panic“. Is the truth at least partly getting through, even to the minds of BBC drones?
If, as American “gun nuts” claim, “the right to bear arms” is the last line of defence for American white people, then why (with tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of Americans legally and/or illegally possessing weapons), is that anti-white hate-broadcaster still not minus a head?
I myself am not, as I have blogged in the past, “anti-gun”, but the fact is that possessing a weapon, whether a firearm or a cold weapon, is not, without more, going to achieve victory for social nationalism.
If anyone is interested, I myself was a member of a “gun club” in the days before Major and Blair used one of only two “spree shooting” massacres in English history (Dunblane; before that, there had been Hungerford) as an excuse to close down most private ownership of firearms. There has been one other such “spree shooting” since then, in Cumbria in 2010.
I belonged until the mid-1980s to the now more or less defunct Kensington Rifle and Pistol Club in West London , which was off the Cromwell Road, and not too far from the Earl’s Court Underground station. I believe that a rump of it still shoots at Bisley in Surrey, where I have not been since I was at school in the early 1970s.
I have had, also, some limited experience of various firearms (shotguns, pistols, automatic weapons too) in other parts of the world: Central Southern Africa, Ireland, the USA etc, but have never been fascinated by weapons, and have never made the mistake of imagining that Mao’s dictum that “political power grows out of the barrel of a gun” is 100% right (though it is not 100% wrong either).
Ideology, organization, and discipline must come first in any serious social-national party or movement.

Julian Assange should be released, and certainly never extradited to American “justice”.
Strange, nicht wahr? Jews and their “antifa” “useful idiots” can conspire to threaten both a London business and people wishing to hold a discussion and entertainment event, and the police do nothing. I wonder what the police reaction would be if Jews were to whine that they were being threatened. I think that we know the answer.
That is where we are now in the UK. “Occupied”. (((Occupied))).

Kennedy was right in principle but what threw his prediction off-course was something that he perhaps did not fully comprehend when young— meaning the Jew-Zionist control over the mass media in the USA and the rest of the “Western” world. TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, publishing (including academic and historical publishing).
Of course, such nominations would have been finalized some months ago, before the avalanche of accusation and evidence re. the “Bootstrap Cook”. I doubt that she will be nominated for any awards in the future.
The facemask nonsense and the rest of the “Covid” “panicdemic” lunacy still has a hold on a small (and mentally-screwed) part of the population.
We, the peoples of Europe, are suffering not because Russia invaded the eastern part of Ukraine, but because “Europe and the USA” (meaning NWO/ZOG) imposed sanctions on Russia. The Western msm have been cheerleading for sanctions and more sanctions, and many have been fooled into suddenly wanting conflict, or even outright war, with Russia. Madness, but also a deliberately fostered madness.
Compare that to the conceptually-similar 19thC squares of traditional London. Private space, guarded by railings, in the middle, and residents usually have keys to get in if they want. Small semi-private parks. However, the ratio of private-park space to number of residents in a traditional London square is far greater than in those large Copenhagen buildings, which are similar to the old Soviet residential constructions which usually had a small area with trees, a play area, containing swings etc, for young children, and benches where grandparents could sit, monitor those children, chat etc.
Not that such a poll means much.
The problem is that, when someone compromises, even a little, with the Jew-Zionist element, they always come back wanting more and more.
Still, we shall see how the Elon Musk rule at Twitter continues. Not bad so far, overall.
It seems that “Jack Monroe” has been deflecting criticism of her partly-invented biography, her financial affairs, and her very questionable fundraising etc (including allegations that she has cheated hundreds of people) by simply not defending her behaviour on Twitter and, at the same time, posting tweets about how to polish old copper kettles, or about her latest change in hairstyle. A simple way of getting a hundred mugs to “reply” to her, thus clearing more critical tweets from the “Jack Monroe” timeline on Twitter. Anyone searching for the name “Jack Monroe” thus sees few, if any, critical tweets.
As of today, “Jack Monroe” is being supported financially by no less than 641 mugs on the Patreon website. That means that she is getting between £2,240 and £28,204 every single month (minus Patreon fees); possibly even taxfree (not sure about that, in view of the fact that she pretends to supply goods in return, though few seem to have been delivered to “patrons”). In any event, it seems reasonable to conclude that she is getting at least £6,000 a month from that source alone, yet still tweets proudly about how her new hairstyle cost her only a few pounds, as if she is really hard-up, and short of ready cash. It is totally dishonest in my opinion, as far as I can see anyway.
What puzzles me is the motivation of the mugs in question. Do they really think that subsidizing the lifestyle of “Jack Monroe” somehow constitutes a blow against the Conservative Party government, or against “poverty” in general? If so, they must be very stupid, or deluded. If anyone wants to help people really in financial trouble, they need only look at the crowdfunding sites such as GoFundMe.
Perhaps, but if so why not explain all that? I featured on the blog the case of a couple who actually sent money to “Jack Monroe”, never saw any material in return, and were refused any refund by her, and/or ignored/blocked, even after they themselves fell into (real) poverty: see
Raises important points, namely “why is the State encouraging millions of young people to take three or four-year degrees, sometimes of questionable quality or utility, and which often lead only to the sort of low-pay, low-skill jobs that they would have done had they not had the university education?” and “why is the State wasting billions annually on this?“
The idea that more “degrees” equals “a more educated population” and “a high-wage economy” is very shallow thinking.
I no longer live in Finistere. When I did, I took the Paris Orly-Brest or Paris CDG-Brest flight(s) a couple of times, after having arrived from Doha (Qatar) on one occasion and Hong Kong on another. An hour and a half in the air instead of between 3 and a half hours and 4 and a half hours on a train (so in fact those air services will not be affected by the new ruling, because over the 2.5-hour mark).
I imagine that that new ruling will make life less convenient for some people, but that that will not be of interest to the many, because only the relative few take such flights anyway. I do have my doubts and suspicions, though, about what amounts to pointless virtue-signalling.
As I have blogged recently, I think now that there should be investigation into “Jack Monroe” by police fraud investigators, trading standards people, fundraiser regulatory staff etc, in order to establish the truth or otherwise of the various allegations made over, especially, the past five months.
For “community uproar“, read “noisy online Jewish claque“.
If it is true that the director of the Tea House Theatre, one Harry Iggulden, has cancelled the appearance of Alison Chabloz by reason of “her views“, then he is no better than the Jewish lobby and their “antifa” “useful idiots”.
Having said that, the Jewish Chronicle is not known for the accuracy of its reports, so we shall see.
…and me…and many millions of other real British people.
When Jews started to flood into the then British-ruled Palestine, after the First World War, they were a small minority. In the period immediately before the Second World War, they were still a minority, but since the establishment of the Jewish state of Israel in 1948, the Jews have not only become the majority, but have gradually taken over most of the land of Palestine; by war, by terrorism, and now more by gradual encroachment supported by Israeli law and typical Jewish misuse of law.
In fact, if you include both Israeli territory and the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza, the Jewish population is not far in excess of the numbers of the Palestinian population(s), but of course the Jews control most of the levers of force and coercion. See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinians
The overall pattern has happened in muted form elsewhere. In Germany, particularly in the 1920s; also in the UK, mainly since the mid-19th Century and acceleratedly so since the 1930s. In the USA and other countries as well.
What matters is not the relative size of population(s), but rather the level of control exercised; not only over military power directly, but including that exercised over law, the legal professions, the mass media, money, and politics.
Just another attempt to encourage donations from bamboozled mugs.
Incredible how many mugs exist in this country (maybe kind, well-meaning etc, but still mugs). There again, were that not not the case, we would not have had taken seriously a number of scams of recent years, such as the “Covid” “panicdemic”, the “vaccine”/”booster” stuff, “Black Lives Matter” and the like, as well as the 2010-2015 “need” for “austerity” (spending cuts) etc.
Many of those that our country has fed and sheltered hate us, not because of anything we have done (good or bad) but because we are white Northern Europeans.
As the Russians say, “feed a wolf how you will, but he will always look back toward the forest“…

The NHS, though a good idea in principle, and even in practice (at times, perhaps often, even today), is not now providing a proper overall service. Needs root and branch reform.
The system known as “healthcare”, inc. NHS should be more intelligently linked to “adult social care” and “elderly care”, to provide a properly-working service for an ageing British population.
As for nurses, naturally I support them having a decent income, but they will —and rightly— lose much public support if they put their own financial interest (however justified) above compassion and care for helpless and suffering people.

“Controlled opposition” drones like that Tom Harwood individual are just a waste of space. An ignorant waste of space, too.
When I lived for a little while in the Caribbean (about 22-23 years ago), I met an American naval officer on vacation with his wife. I never asked him his rank (or the name of his ship), but I presume at least a naval captain, maybe higher, in view of the fact that he commanded a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier.
A pleasant little man, who looked a bit like the Penguin in the 1960s Batman TV series, he had an air of unstressed command. Not exactly “commanding”, still less imperious or contrived; he just radiated a kind of urbane manner that conveyed that he knew that anything that he did order to be done would be done.
I asked that naval officer over a drink how on Earth he carried the responsibility of something like docking a ship of such enormous size, and he replied rather modestly that “ah, I have people to do things like that for me“…
7/10 this week, thus again beating political journalist John Rentoul, who scored 5/10. I did not know, or could not bring to mind, the answers to questions 3, 5, and 7 (and I admit that my correct answer to question 1 was a pure guess).
There are a lot of mugs around.
“Jack Monroe”, even after the latest fall in “patrons” (donors) still presently has a gross monthly income from Patreon of between £2,222 and £27,940; probably around £6,000, at a guess. That’s every month, and possibly taxfree. For nothing.
A few months ago, “Jack Monroe” had 800 mug donors sending her money, so it seems that the Twitterstorm around her this year has had an effect.
If what I read is accurate, she had only, or about, 200 “patrons” until part-Jewish TV cook Nigella Lawson promoted her by mentioning her somewhere, after which the total soared to 800+.
The public is fickle, easily manipulated.

In our hearts, we know that this can only end one way, that there will only be one way out, in the end.
Weak parts of the body politic, weak parts that must be excised.
The Labour candidate, a woman who seems to have been a housewife/homemaker previously, as well as (from 2011) a councillor and (from 2015) leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council, scored 61.2%, Labour’s best-ever result in the constituency. The fact that she was brought up in, and has lived in, the area since the age of 4 cannot have hurt her campaign.
Conversely, the Conservative candidate did very badly, scoring 22.4%; the previous worst Con result was in 2001 (33.1%).
The LibDem, on 8.4%, was the only other candidate to retain his deposit. Their best result in a decade, but underwhelming when compared to where the LibDems were prior to the 2010-2015 “Con Coalition”.
Of the others, the only ones worth noting are the Greens (2.8%) and the new Farage vehicle, Reform UK (2.7%). The other four candidates scored 1% or below.
Thoughts? A very good result for Labour, despite it having been in a by-election. Labour’s previous best was 56.8% in 2017, which had been ahead of all other results, even that of 1997.
The voters are getting very tired of the Conservative Party, and even if they may not consider that Labour will do much if at all better on a number of issues, that alone cannot save Sunak and the Con Party.
Not much else to be said, except that Farage is proven once again a busted flush; his Reform UK party is not likely to get anywhere. Britain needs a real social-national party.
Finally, what did strike me was the low turnout— 41.2%, by far the lowest ever, though of course this was only a by-election. The previous-lowest turnout was in the General Election of 2001 (63.8%).
The low turnout might well indicate apathy, or apathy vis a vis the present political and voting system; it may also indicate anger and frustration, and a view that the present system cannot solve Britain’s problems.
Whatever the truth of that, the fact remains that 58.8% of eligible voters did not vote. How many were disaffected former Con voters unwilling to vote Labour or even LibDem? We do not know, but the fact is that 6,335 people voted Con at this by-election, compared with 20,918 in 2019 (when the turnout was 71.7%).
Britain has a basically binary political system. That only about 10% of eligible voters here cast a vote for the governing party must ring alarm bells at CCHQ.
[Note: incidentally, since writing the above, a few hours ago, I see that journalists and others are tweeting that the result was “the worst result for the Conservatives since 1832“. Not right.
The 1832 General Election now being referred to by journalists was one where there were three candidates in City of Chester, but two of those candidates were both Whigs —but with differing views— and the losing one, who came third, was the one now being called a “Conservative”.
In any case, that was a different world].
I take no interest in the World Cup and similar circuses for the deluded masses, but have just now noticed that the “German” team is composed only half of Europeans (i.e. white players) let alone “Germans” (even if they may have a few bits of paper describing them as “German”).
I do not really want the photo on the blog, but I suppose that I have to make the point:
I suppose that the “England” team is now similar. What a farce.
Well, it is not every day that I can agree with a view expressed by the Jewish Chronicle!

I notice that that incident was not in the UK, but am not sure where it happened; I think in France.
I never cease to be amazed at the ignorant comments made about the 1970s in the UK. The “Winter of Discontent” lasted for a couple of months in 1978-79, only really badly affected a few geographic areas, and even fewer urban areas had “bodies stacked up” etc, and not for long.
You also see people insistent that there were long periods of the 1970s with electrical blackouts etc. In fact, most areas did not have blackouts at all, even in the “three day week” period of late 1973.
The whole thing has been blown up into this fable in which a whole decade consisted of blackouts, nothing working, rubbish and corpses unburied or unburned, and a “three day week” which (according to the fable) lasted for years, rather than the few weeks it actually lasted.
What is actually alarming about some of those assertions is that they are made even by some people who were actually there at the time (as I was, incidentally: aged 17 in late 1973, and 22 in the winter of 1978-79). The fallibility of human memory is astounding at times; I notice it because I have always had an exceptional memory.
Good news: that ridiculous little monkey, Sajid Javid, the Israel-loving Muslim apostate and Ayn Rand devotee, is leaving political life.
Also, Rees-Mogg has said, of Chloe Smith, another rat leaving the sinking Con “Titanic“, that “Chloe Smith got in in a by-election, has served in the highest office, has been a distinguished minister.“
In what world was Chloe Smith ever “distinguished“?!
That must be right. The USA is supplying the Jewish-Zionist Kiev regime with missiles, the UK is supplying tanks and other advanced armour. Training too. At what point does Russia, or the leadership of Russia, say “****-it!” and start to press buttons?
Pretty sad; poignant. He may be a soldier of the Kiev regime, but I hope that he will be able to return to his children before too long.
Life is short, dangerous, and fragile. Amazing X-ray photo.

The continuing storm around “Jack Monroe”, the “Bootstrap Cook”
Very hard-hitting tweets, but maybe required reading for some sadly misled people in public services, charities etc, who are still apparently unaware of the storm around “Jack Monroe”, the “Bootstrap Cook”, which gained strength in July/August 2022 and has scarcely abated.
I think that some people in executive positions at charities etc, mentally bought into the whole “Bootstrap Cook” thing many years ago, and do not want to see how it has now become a very tarnished “story”.
Having now seen more material over the past two months, I think that that assessment was more than fair. Perhaps I was too lenient.
This is not a matter which concerns only “Jack Monroe” and the many people who are alleged to have been cheated by her. This is a matter of considerable public interest and concern.
People have to have reasonable confidence that, when they donate money to a cause, or transfer the same, in order —or partly in order— to receive goods and/or services, that they are not being lied to, bamboozled, treated as “mugs”, and cheated out of money.
One of those allegedly cheated by “Jack Monroe” is a lady (not known to me other than via her tweets) called (I believe) Heather Booth (“@frugally_minded” on Twitter), who says that she donated monies on the Patreon website to “Jack Monroe”, but received neither the goods promised nor the refund(s) later demanded.
That lady, who with her disabled husband is now in a terrible financial situation, has not only not been refunded by “Jack Monroe” but also has had to contend with online trolls since the behaviour of “Jack Monroe” has become known online. Whether “Jack Monroe” herself was involved in that, I have no idea.
As to the overall “Jack Monroe”/”Bootstrap Cook” situation, it seems to me that the responsible regulatory officers (eg for fundraising and/or trading standards) should investigate it. There may well be a need also for the police to investigate whether any offences around alleged fraud have been committed.

Looks as though some Jew Twitter-trolls from North London may be about to experience the beginning of the end…
Now the idiots in the Westminster monkeyhouse are also sending more arms, hundreds of millions of pounds-worth more, to the Kiev regime. Both evil and stupid.
How is it that some unknown Canadian hero has not yet done what is evidently necessary?
Please refer to previous comment, mutatis mutandis.
Indicates, as much as any poll can, 18-24 months before a general election, that it may be that the Conservative Party will lose badly but not catastrophically.
It was only weeks ago that the Con Party was on 20%; now 30%. Labour Party has slipped back slightly, and LibDems have slightly improved, to 10%.
Of course, under a proportional representation system, that might give the LibDems 65 MPs, whereas of course, under FPTP voting, 10% gives between 0-20, maybe more MPs, depending on how many votes are concentrated wherever. UKIP got 12% of the vote in 2015 and only 1 MP (a previously-elected Con Party MP) instead of the 78 that might have been expected under a pure PR system.
Despite much noise from Farage, it is clear that, so far, Reform UK is not breaking through. That may be partly because Farage himself is a busted flush, having stabbed his own Brexit Party supporters and candidates in the back during the 2019 General Election. Also, in my view, because the new-ish “Reform UK” is playing the same sort of pseudo-“libertarian” and Brexit tune as did Brexit Party and UKIP before.
The national mood has moved. People want public services that work, not the right to try to become low-tax “entrepreneurs”. What most white British (especially English) people want, but unconsciously, is a form of social-nationalism suited to UK conditions. There is, however, no party even approximating to that.
Looking at that opinion poll, it may be that people are now seriously starting to assess Labour, which is aping most “Conservative” policies and, as someone once parodied Starmer, “we approve of workhouses but they must be run in a fairer way, and more efficiently.”
Rachel Reeves has, over the years, repeatedly said that she would be even harder on the unemployed, sick, and disabled than have been the Con Party governments. She is also a member of Labour Friends of Israel, like Starmer and all his Shadow Cabinet.
On immigration, Labour would allow in even more blacks and browns.
On free speech, Labour would be even more restrictive (hardly surprising, bearing in mind the powerfully poisonous influence of the Jewish lobby on Labour now).
All that, however, does not let Sunak and Con Party off the hook. Many previously Con voters are likely to see the present government as a shambolic mess, and therefore to abstain, or to vote LibDem. That may not result in many (or any) new LibDem MPs, but may have an effect in some Con constituencies.
Likewise, the Reform UK candidates are probably not going to become MPs but may well take votes away from Con Party in marginal constituencies.
It is clear to many that the Government is rubbish, but that the Opposition is also rubbish.
The Conservative Party has never scored as low as 30% in any general election. The closest was in 1997 (30.7%), which resulted in 165 Con MPs (in a slightly larger Commons— 659).
A few percentage points makes a big difference at this level. In 2001, the Con vote was 31.7%, and MPs elected numbered 166, just one more than in 1997, but in 2005 the 32.4% vote-share resulted in 198 MPs (in a 646-member House of Commons).
In 2010, David Cameron-Levita’s Con Party achieved only 36.1%, but had elected 306 MPs (out of 650).
The oddity of British elections is shown by the fact that, in 2017, Theresa May’s Con Party achieved 42.3%, yet only had elected 317 MPs (out of 650). The devil is very much in the detail.
In 2019, Boris Johnson’s Con Party received a 43.6% vote, not much more than in 2017, but the number of MPs jumped to 365.
All the same, once the percentage vote goes below about 35%, the number of MPs elected starts to plummet; below 30% would probably mean fewer than 150 MPs, below 25% a near wipeout.
At 30%, then, the Conservative Party is still just about in the game.
Ludicrously overpaid and completely stupid, uneducated, uncultured, TV drones, applauding NWO/ZOG puppets such as Jacinda Ardern.
True, but of course there are large areas where there are few or relatively few non-whites. The direction of travel, though, is the most important factor. It would be acceptable for the population to be reduced to a twentieth of its present level, if the remaining portion were English/British.
That woman is another treacherous mass media half-caste determined to destroy our race, history, and culture.
Apart from which, the idea of hitting non-State schools on tax is wrongheaded. They are not businesses, but charitable institutions which do not make profits but surpluses, ploughed back into the purposes of the schools.
Those Dutch police thugs would not have been so ready to throw their weight around had a couple of snipers opened up from distant windows…
Glue Greta Nut and her supporters to them.
Look at these loonies!
Complete loonies, who want to be told what to believe. Sick organisms within our society. Also, note their support for “Ukraine” (not the real Ukraine, but the fantasy totem) and for the egregious “Bootstrap Cook” (another fantasy totem)…

More unreality, this time from someone who thinks that he is “anti-Tory” and so (?) supports the allegedly “grifting” and lying “Bootstrap Cook” whom he obviously thinks opposes the Conservative Party (doubtful); at the same time, said “anti-Tory” is apparently making money (or pretending as much) by, of all things, parasitic currency trading!
No wonder Britain is having a “mental health crisis” (or so we are told)— people now love unreality, from believing that “holocaust” “gas chambers” are real history, to Russia supposedly posing a threat to the UK, to Ukraine being a fine upstanding “democracy” (and not a corrupt, shambolic Jew-ruled dictatorship), to “Black Lives Matter”, “Covid”, and Albanian gangsters and parasites being “refugees” etc.
Exactly. The tweeter “@mikecosgrove” has mistaken the label on the jar for the contents.
Compare Russian culture (whether in music, painting, literature, whatever) to Ukrainian. There is just no comparison.
I have still seen not one investigation or report, nor even any question posed by the UK/US mainstream media, as to where the prisoners of the Kiev regime are being held, or under what conditions.
