If it happens, and if some of us survive, we must make it our duty to —later— seek out and destroy those who are (at present) calling for war with Russia, and/or are cheering on that terrible prospect.
Thus proving that General Patton was intelligent as well as martial, and that the cowardly poseur and scribbler, Ernest Hemingway, was pretty stupid, as well as, in effect, a fellow-traveller with Stalin.
If someone is going to support Stalin, I prefer a genuine out-and-out Stalinist to a fake pseudo-revolutionary champagne socialist and “useful idiot”. At least the hard-core Stalinist of the recent past was honest in his views.
Incidentally, the existence of the likes of tweeter Daniel Kovalik shows that the day of the socio-political idiot is as yet not extinct. I agree with him that the USA should stay out of the Ukrainian conflict, though.
As a foundation, yes. The sine qua non.
Blame the organ-grinders, not their well-paid monkeys.
The most alarming aspect of the dictatorship starting so obviously to envelop us in the West is that the vast majority of people are absolutely complacent about it, if they even realize that it is happening.
Ironic. Wiesenthal presented himself as living in modest circumstances in Vienna, reliant on various minor (it seems now maybe not so minor) income streams (including a stipend from the Israeli external intelligence org, MOSSAD).
Indeed, the thriller writer Frederick Forsyth portrayed Wiesenthal as rather down-at-heel in his, Forsyth’s, book, The Odessa File.
I suppose that it is unlikely that Alison Chabloz will be inclined to write a new song about it all, now that she has been imprisoned —again— for lampooning Jewish behaviour. Pity.
The “Wiesenthal watch” is a Patek Philippe, the so-called “Rolls-Royce of watches”. They do keep their value well. I knew of a couple of such watches sold by the writer and diplomat Miguel Serrano [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miguel_Serrano], who was very friendly with a London-based friend of mine.
Serrano wanted to sell a couple of Patek Philippe watches at (if I remember aright) Sotheby’s. I cannot now recall exactly when that was, either late 1980s or early 1990s. I think late 80s.
One of the watches had been given to Serrano by Indira Gandhi [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indira_Gandhi]. Serrano had been Indira Gandhi’s lover (while he was in India as Ambassador, from 1957), though that fact is absent from Wikipedia etc. Serrano himself made no great secret of the liaison, at least to trusted friends, and was apparently invited to Indira Gandhi’s funeral after her assassination.
I cannot recall now how much the watches fetched at auction; many thousands, and perhaps over £20,000. A lot, bearing in mind that this was over 30 years ago.
The watches were left in the keeping of my friend, who showed them to me; she put them up for auction for Serrano, who was still in Chile.
Serrano later came to London, collected the proceeds of sale, and spent £5,000 on a painting by Hitler, one of several also up for auction at that time. I might have been introduced to Serrano, but either I was out of the country, or other matters got in the way. At any rate, I never did meet him.
“Bank of England’s new doom-laden warning for the economy: Unemployment will rise, inflation will hit TEN PERCENT and post-Covid growth will stagnate – as interest rates rise AGAIN to a 13-year high of 1%.”
I am sure that most readers of this blog will not need to be told that the above has not been caused by Putin or his invasion of Ukraine, but by the nearly two years of ridiculous “Covid” restrictions, and the “free money” (supposed) giveaways (“furlough” payments, massive fraud, cash for cronies, “eat out to help out”, business “loans” etc).
The situation is made far worse now by the UK’s (and others’) sanctions regime aimed at Russia.
Britain should have loosely joined with Russia years ago, in return for cost-price gas and the defusing of the arms race.
Still, this might be the time for which social-nationalists have been waiting, if a credible and effective social-national movement emerges. So far, not; just ineffective and almost ludicrous little organizations, without weight, numbers, money, or credibility.
A relative few (including me) saw through part-Jew poseur “Boris” from the beginning, maybe 15+ years ago. Only recently did that become the majority. It is clear to almost all now that he simply does not have the ability to be a Prime Minister. Yes, he also lacks the decency and the ethics, but first and foremost he lacks the ability.
They look like Roma Gypsies. Blame also those who defend them and want more to arrive on our shores…
This can only end one of two ways.
If it does come to the UK, MPs who do not oppose it should be…blamed.

Frightening. What is really behind this kind of science?
Why are they laughing so uncontrollably? Mental disorder? Drunk?
Loonies like that are apparently increasingly common in North America.
I cannot remember when exactly it was that I blogged about (inter alia) the 1980s/1990s Greenham Common (UK) “peace women”, but I expect my commentary can be found via the search function on the blog. Similar loonies.
“The missiles were removed by reason of NATO-Warsaw Pact negotiations. The “Women’s Peace Camp” was a complete waste of time and effort.
“A series of meetings held during August and September 1986 culminated in a summit between United States President Ronald Reaganand the General Secretary of the CPSUMikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavík, Iceland, on 11 October 1986. To the surprise of both men’s advisers, the two agreed in principle to removing INF systems from Europe and to equal global limits of 100 INF missile warheads.
The United States and the Soviet Union signed the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty in 1987, which led to the removal of all nuclear missiles from the base. The last GLCMs at RAF Greenham Common were removed in March 1991, and the 501st TMW inactivated on 4 June 1991.” [Wikipedia]
Incidentally and incredibly, even though the last missiles left Greenham Common in 1991, even though the Americans left Greenham in 1992 and even though the UK Ministry of Defence closed the base in 1993, putting it up for sale (the area being almost all designated by 1997 as public parkland), the “Greenham Women” stayed, some of them, until 2000! To me that proves that without their having “political activism” to do, some of them had nothing to do with their time or their lives. They were unable to accept that their protests (for 19 years!) had actually achieved nothing and in any case had been superseded by large-scale international events. Like the Japanese soldier in the 1970s, fighting a lone war in the jungle, 30 years after the Pacific War had ended.“
Imagine what would happen if, suitably publicized, a Royal Navy vessel opened fire on a boatload of migrant-invaders. It would probably stop the cross-Channel invasion dead, so to speak. It will not happen, because the System wants the migration-invasion to continue. Israeli agent, the East African Asian Priti Patel, posing as Home Secretary, is just a monkey, not one of the organ-grinders. She puts up pathetic and unworkable “policies” from time to time, purely to bamboozle the simpler members of the public.
The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan is that Europe should become a continent inhabited mainly by mixed-race semi-Europeans, and ruled over by Jews and part-Jews.
The past three UK prime ministers have been part-Jew: Boris Johnson, Theresa May, David Cameron-Levita.
Nigel Farage is “controlled opposition”, and I think consciously so. The bastard revels in pulling the wool over the eyes of the plebs, none more so than those who used to idolize him, the UKIP, Brexit Party, and Reform Party cannon-fodder.
Farage can be put in the same bin as Toby Young, James Delingpole, Breitbart, GB News, all the rubbish that pretends to be pro free speech, national identity etc, but never says a word about Jew-Zionist conspiracy, and never supports those truly standing up for race and culture. Bin them all.
The international “sovereign debt” matrix is the biggest scam in the world, bigger even than the “early 1940s gas chambers” narrative and associated farrago.
What happened to the American (supposed) “right to bear arms”? Seems that the said small arms are just like nuclear weapons— they have them but are supposed never to use them…
He had days to think up something to say about his behaviour, and yet that was the best he could do.
“Tractors“? Worthy of a TV comedy sketch.
These are the twits who purport to rule over us as “legislators”; a bunch of freeloading, corrupt, half-educated, not very intelligent placemen and placewomen, all or almost all under the control of the Jew-Zionist/Israel lobby.
The language is remarkable, and rather crude, in places:
“Like a street corner spiv practising crude blackmail, Lavrov claimed there was a “considerable risk” such a war might go nuclear. Presumably he knows this because Putin is actually considering it.
Liz Truss, Lavrov’s British counterpart, dodged the nuclear question in her Mansion House speech – but went for the jugular. Her bold declaration that total victory, plus the liberation of all occupied Ukrainian territory including Crimea, was a “strategic imperative” for the west may have surprised less gung-ho Nato allies who foolishly didn’t realise she speaks for them.
Biden has repeatedly insisted the conflict will be contained. “Direct confrontation between Nato and Russia is world war three, something we must strive to prevent,” he said after the invasion began.
But war has its own deathly momentum. Daily acts of escalation point in one direction. Nato is like a patient in denial. The reality, by many measures, is that it’s already at war with Russia.
Perhaps future historians of the Ukraine conflict will map the path to wider conflagration in the same way academic predecessors traced the origins of the first world war.
It’s clear the west cannot abandon Ukraine simply out of fear over how far manic Putin might go. Such a collapse would wreck the global order, the UN, and Europe’s security. Yet the longer the war rages, the bigger the risk of a different kind of cataclysmic, world-changing event.
So here’s the choice, as the northern English say: piss or get off the pot. Either the western allies act decisively, right now, to halt this war by demanding an immediate ceasefire and threatening and, if necessary, launching direct military intervention to secure it – as previously urged in this space.
Or, alternatively, Truss, Austin and other hawks stop stoking the fire and setting unrealistic goals, and instead advise Kyiv to accept a negotiated settlement that, regrettably, will inevitably reward Putin’s aggression.“
Overall, urging war with Russia. Over Ukraine. A country with which no Western state is allied in any way. A country which has only been an independent country for 30 years.
This is madness. It needs to stop now, before escalation which might lead to massive destruction in Russia, in the USA, across Europe. Oh…and the almost total destruction of the UK, with its small geographic size, plenitude of targets, and inability to defend itself against nuclear missile attack. Cold comfort for the British people to know that British submarine-launched missiles might have also hit a few Russian targets.
The recently-imprisoned former Ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_Murray], has described the Guardian as being, these days, “the house journal of MI6” (SIS). If so, even more disturbing.

The mega-wealthy have been buying up UK farmland and country estates as well. Look on Rightmove or estate agents’ websites. Try to find large or medium-sized estates and farms in the UK for sale. Not many, and many that do appear are bought quite swiftly. James Dyson alone has been buying large tracts of land from Gloucestershire, through Oxfordshire and north-east as far as Lincolnshire. As for Scotland, few estates are for sale now.
Land is being bought as a long-term hedge. There is diminishing trust or confidence in currency, and in quoted or other shares.
I wonder how much else of what we are told about Ukrainian military capability is a mirage?
Well, this week I soundly trounced political journalist John Rentoul, who scored a miserable 3/10. I scored 8/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1 and 8.
Exactly what I have been blogging for months now.
Boris-idiot has latched onto Ukraine as a kind of sub-Falklands Factor, to distract from his hopeless handling of pretty much everything in domestic British politics. The cunning Jew, Zelensky, is playing “Boris” for all he is worth. £500M in military aid, missiles, tanks (all gratis), “refugee” hospitality etc etc.
If Britain (either directly or in effect, via Poland) gives tanks to the Kiev regime, the UK is pretty close to being in a war with Russia which, though at present still a cold war, might well result in a hot war before very long.
Russia, if willing to use all its power, cannot “lose” in Ukraine. For example, were it to use tactical and/or battlefield nuclear weapons. Thus it can be seen that for the UK and USA to funnel arms to the Kiev regime is merely to prolong and intensify the agony of the Ukrainian civilians and their companion animals (which latter is not a “small” matter, as some believe; some apparently small matters are, spiritually, of great importance).
He should be flogged.
When you look at the clowns in charge of both the Government and, in places, NHS, it is unsurprising that nothing works properly.
If Macron wins that semi-rigged election in France, it will be a situation of (to paraphrase the famous Sun headline of 1992), “it was the w*gs wot won it!“…
No less than 17% of the officially-noted population of France are non-white: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/France#Ethnic_groups. Few of those will vote for Marine le Pen. The votes of the supposedly socialist Melenchon (22% in the first round, third-placed; knocked out) are mostly those of non-French (i.e. non-white) voters. Melenchon himself is only French by (partial) upbringing— his parents are Spanish and Spanish/Sicilian, and he lived in Morocco until aged 11.
Most of the Melenchon voters will either vote Macron (to stop Marine le Pen), or will abstain, in this second round. Thus the French people will —probably— be cheated.
Births to ethnic non-French are booming; births to French people declining. This election may be the last chance the French people have to save themselves by ordinary, “lawful” methods, and I fear that, like the Brits, Germans, and others, they will fluff it.
Not that I think hugely highly of Marine le Pen, who even has Jews advising her (and undermining her), but she at least seems to value the heritage of France and of Europe, as compared to Zionist puppet Macron.
Europe may have to be destroyed and remade.
Latest news from the camp of satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, presently imprisoned for, in effect, singing a song about the Charles Dickens character, the Jew Fagin, and also for making a few comments about Zionist Jews on Internet podcasts (the host of one of which podcast has also been imprisoned, though not because of anything Alison said on his show): Alison Chabloz remains at Bronzefield Prison, though it seems that an appeal against both conviction and sentence is in train, as is a renewed application for bail pending appeal.
When or if I receive further news, I shall publish it on the blog. Previous recent blog posts give details of how to send cards, letters, paperback books, and small sums of money to Alison at the prison.

Is there no way of removing Jacinda Ardern from office?
I still see the occasional poor sap wearing a useless facemask; usually an elderly person, and usually at Waitrose, though I did see a little village shop today where almost all of the 6-8 customers (except me, I think) were still wearing the masks; I suppose they still imagine that it is “the law” (if it ever truly was). The other customers were all about 90 years old.
In any case, most of what issues from the bastard’s mouth is a stream of lying falsehood.
East of the Dnieper river and also, in the south, 50-100+ miles inland from the sea coasts, as I have been blogging from the start, a couple of months ago.
Having said that, in my view such a strategy must eventually include Kiev, which straddles the Dnieper.

If only Britain had kept the Empire; if only Britain had not fought a savage and pointless war against the German Reich. The shambolic and corrupt countries now seen in Asia and Africa would still be being run properly, by British civil servants and officers at the top level, and indeed below top level. It would have been better for Britain, the native peoples of those countries, for the animals, birds and other wildlife, and for the environment generally.
Ha. Reminds me of British TV news film taken in Salisbury, Rhodesia, circa 1966:
Here is another film. Salisbury, Rhodesia (now Harare, Zimbabwe) in 1960.
It was not that different when I was there in 1977. I remember seeing most of what is on the film. A few more tall buildings.
Now, of course, after 45 years of black misrule, it is very different.
I notice that even black “Zimbabweans” comment about how beautiful it was back then. True. It was the beauty of the flowering trees and bushes etc that struck me when I was there in 1977. I hope that they still have some of those, at least.
Human nature? It is human nature (for the majority) to bend before authority (read Nietzsche). That is why most, for example, British, Australians, New Zealanders etc obeyed the “rules” and illegitimate laws imposed. Not all sheep in New Zealand have four legs…
Society would lose nothing if those women and the man (if that is what he is) speaking were themselves “terminated”. Au contraire.
Jesus H. Christ! It may be trite to repeat it but “war is hell” (even when unavoidable)…
Of course, most of Ukraine, even in the active war zones, is not devastated, not yet anyway. I hope that it will not be devastated. However, the funnelling of heavy armament by USA/UK etc (NWO/ZOG) to the Jew Zelensky’s Kiev regime will only prolong and intensify the agony, the harm and the loss to civilians, and the destruction of cities and towns.
Russia will probably still be able to take all of the part of Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and Kiev as well, eventually.
I came across a video. It purports to be from an independent American journalist taken (by Russian soldiers) to the front line of the battle for Mariopol/Mariupol. How “true” it is, I have no idea, but it is something that the Western msm will not show. I cannot link it here because it has been marked “age-restricted” by YouTube, but you can see it by looking for the reports of Patrick Lancaster on YouTube, or perhaps via Google.
As previously blogged, the Russians seem to be drawing a line from their southern occupied areas, through Zaporozhye, and (as yet only on maps, not on the ground) up to Dnipro/Dnepropetrovsk and then further up to the Kharkov area.
If the Russians can do that, and if they can hold that line, then the Ukrainian or Kiev-regime forces east of that line are doomed, because they will have no chance of resupply.
We are told that the best, most effective, Ukrainian forces are in the southeast, around the Donbass region. If they become completely encircled, then not only are they themselves doomed, but the Kiev regime will lose the best part of its army. In that event, the situation on the ground will change rapidly. The Russians will have far greater forces to deploy beyond the southeast, and the cities east of the Dnieper still under Kiev-regime control will quite soon fall. The distance from Dnipro to Kiev is the same as that from Kharkov to Kiev— 300 miles.
The Russians might decide to advance on Kiev after that, not only from the south/southeast, but also from the east (once Kharkov is fully taken) and again from the north.
There again, Odessa is a major strategic target, as the third-largest city (after Kiev and Kharkov), and with more anti-ship missiles being sent to the Kiev regime by the UK and USA, the Russians might prefer to secure Odessa before attempting Kiev.
Historically, Russia has been at its most relentless when its back has been against the wall. Russia has to win this war, now that it is impossible to back out. The horrible mess of the invasion, and the toll on civilians and their companion animals, has been terrible, but Russia now has no choice but to wade through it all, to some sort of “victory”, however bitter.
I agree, but in reality the opposite is happening. Boris-idiot has more or less abandoned the British people (to sink or swim in a sea of price rises, shortages not only of goods but of NHS and other services as well, and other problems). Fake “Boris” is now the am-dram poundland “Churchill” again, desperately seeking vindication by giving UK weaponry to the Jew Zelensky and his Zionist Kiev regime.
I am inclined to think that “Partygate” is a pathetic storm in a teacup (and the “rules” should never have existed anyway), but the fact is that “Boris” thinks that whatever rules do exist are for the British people, but not for him and his cosmopolitan and only notionally “British” cabal.
How long before we hear (via some propaganda spout such as BBC Countryfile) that rural England, and farming in it, are not “diverse” enough?
…and now, the huge economic cost, and social cost too, of the crazed “lockdown” policy, eg in the UK, is being blamed on Putin!
Stupid, illogical, but many are already being fooled by the System propaganda.
Most online censorship etc is done by, or at the instigation of, the Jew-Zionist element in UK and world society: see a few of my own experiences here below.
No, because Sturgeon, like Toby Young, is a hypocrite. Young runs the “Free Speech Union”, which however has never said a word in favour of me (since 2016 not only wrongfully-disbarred, but also harassed several times over the years by police drones, at the instigation of the Jew/Zionist/Israel lobby); likewise, Young and the free speech bods have never spoken up for Alison Chabloz (imprisoned more than once for singing satirical songs and posting satirical cartoons about Jew frauds), or Jez Turner (imprisoned for one sentence in a speech about Jews). Etc.
Speaking of imprisoned (last Thursday, yet again) satirist and singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, it seems that she will be appealing both her conviction and sentence, though I have no details. From what little I heard at time of, or immediately subsequent to, trial and sentencing, there are several possible grounds of appeal, in law, but I prefer to remain silent until I have detail (if I do) of the grounds of appeal.
In the meantime, until or unless she can get bail pending appeal, Alison sits in Bronzefield Prison near Heathrow Airport.
Alison’s address and Prisoner Number is now confirmed as below:
Alison Chabloz A6478EK
Anyone who wishes to send postcards, letters, books [new books only, softback only, preferably from online booksellers, but not from Amazon] etc, can send them to the above address.
Small sums of money can also be sent to Alison via the official government system: see https://www.gov.uk/send-prisoner-money. The date of birth of the prisoner is required; Alison’s date of birth is 4 April 1964.
The Jew-Zionist troublemakers at the tiny but (needless to say) well-funded “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”, who boasted last year that they had “been trying to get Alison Chabloz imprisoned for 5 years” (note the typically-obsessional mentality), have in recent days been crowing on Twitter etc about Alison’s latest unjust sentence.
In fact, as of tomorrow, Thursday 21 April 2022, Alison will already have served 1/11th of her likely actual custodial sentence (i.e. one week out of the total 22 weeks, of which half, 11 weeks, will be spent in prison).
The “CAA” cabal has put out a lot of effort for not much reward, it seems to me.
If Alison gets bail pending appeal, it is quite likely that the appeal (in Crown Court, unless another route is sought via Divisional Court) will not be heard for many months, perhaps not even until 2023.
This is not new, though —arguably— the subtlety, and degree of intensification, may be.
In the First World War, the British Government set up a quite effective “black propaganda” unit, which claimed that Belgian and French babies were being impaled on German bayonets, nuns attacked to bell-clappers in cathedrals and so murdered in that bizarre fashion, and that civilians were being murdered, their bodies being melted down to produce soap, and the skin used to upholster armchairs or create lamp-shades.
At least many of the poorly-educated British public of 1914-18 actually believed those stories (which were in fact all completely untrue). You may say, “well, most people were uneducated then, had never travelled” etc, but some of the very same stories were, so to speak, “recycled” in the Second World War: bodies melted to create soap, skin used in lamp-shades etc.
If even a detective-sergeant of the police cannot see that such stories are a kind of science-fiction, then how can many others tell truth from fiction?
Now, the public is asked to believe that most Russians are almost devils, and that most Ukrainians are almost saintly, that Putin is a real devil, but that the Jew dictator Zelensky is a hero and all-round wonderful person.
We see and hear of atrocities committed by Russians (in fact, Chechens and others seem more culpable), but the proven atrocities committed by Ukrainian forces (eg sadistically shooting young Russian captives in the legs before executing them in the field (both war crimes) are, if reported at all by the Western msm, glossed over and not dwelt upon much.
In fact, bearing in mind the number of Western msm reporters now in Western Ukraine, where are the reports about how the Zelensky regime is treating its Russian (and Ukrainian dissident) captives? Answer came there none…
The latest absurdity is, of course, the fast-tracking of Ukraine into the EU. A country with part (and soon half) of its claimed territory under “foreign” occupation, a country with almost no economy left, with a near-worthless currency, with 15% of its citizens now living in other countries (having fled).
Proof positive that the EU has abandoned being a trading bloc and has become a purely political component of the New World Order [NWO].

Quite. I am all for getting rid of Boris-idiot and his Cabinet (and read that how you like) but not at the cost of a Starmer-Labour Jewish-lobby “elected” dictatorship.
What happened is that Sweden a. let hundreds of thousands of non-whites live in Sweden; b. supported said non-whites to live, feed, breed, and exercise political power; c. disallowed criticism of “a” and “b”.
Hard to believe now that, in pre-EU days (when it was just the EEC, and Sweden not part of it), 1982, I was actually refused admission to Sweden at the port of Malmo (they said that I did not have enough money) while en route to Helsinki and having arrived from the port of Travemunde in the then West Germany (Travemunde was on the border of the DDR).
I actually got deported, in effect! Had to return to West Germany. Now the sweepings of Asia and Africa arrive and are (officially) “welcomed” by the Swedish government (which is plainly a “ZOG”)…
For several years, I have been blogging and (before the Jew lobby had me expelled from Twitter in 2018) tweeting that the UK needs to join more closely with Russia, partly because, on certain premises, Russia would supply the UK with natural gas at or near cost-price.
The present “British” government of Jews, part-Jews, Indians etc has no interest in the welfare of the British people, preferring to do the job of the New World Order [NWO] in attacking Russia, Ukraine being the latest excuse.

Pretty typical of many news reports seen now, eg in the Daily Mail and other online newspapers: containing spelling mistakes as well as misunderstood bits and pieces. For example, “shackle” for “shekel“. The (mostly quite poorly-paid) 20-somethings now writing for newspapers do not, most of them, have the real-life journalistic background of the old-style reporters.
Having said that, the MyLondon report, by one Holly Evans, does cover the main facts adequately, if briefly and selectively.
In the early 1980s, I think 1981 or 1982, I was at that funfair, or a similar one, on the grassed open area or Common at Blackheath. My then girlfriend’s small children, aged about 5 and 7, wanted to go. I rather dislike funfairs but had to agree to take them and their mother. It was just about walking distance from their house.
We tried various stalls and rides. I think (though cannot truly remember after 40 years) that I won a prize at the rifle-shooting stall, and I remember being asked (told by the attendant, and rudely) to stop driving my dodgem car broadside into other peoples’ cars; not aggression, but I honestly thought that that was what you were allowed and expected to do; in fact that had happened several times before in my life…I must be a recidivist!
Anyway, the children’s mother noticed a placard inviting anyone wanting to earn £5 to return at midnight to help dismantle all the rides etc. This was 1982, but £5 was no great sum even then; maybe £20 in the money of today.
If truth be known, I was not very enthusiastic, but I had no real or weekly/monthly source of income, and was not even on the dole, so I felt obliged to do it. I had not even started the law degree I later did (from 1984-1987), and had been overseas not long before.
A rather unwanted guest, a recent ex-Soviet citizen, middle-aged, and with glasses and a pipe, called Volodya (the children, unable to say his name, called him Volyoda), was accompanying us, but was saved from having to do any hard work by his (suddenly-mentioned) bad knee…
I turned up at midnight, and so began a very tiring and unpleasant overnight slog lasting hours, during which I, and about 8 other foolish volunteers, had to do things such as dismantle the dodgem car ride (carrying steel girders as well as cars), and (in my case) also climbing and wriggling to the top of the largest marquee and dismantling that.
Needless to say, I was in far better physical condition then than I now am. I could not even think of doing such labour now. All the same, this was hard hard work.
The funfair manageress woman, some kind of tinker-“traveller” type, wanted us, at 0400 hrs, to return to do more work and collect our £5 notes in the later morning! I led a “peasants’ revolt” against this transparent attempt to cheat us, and we then slaved for another hour or so before being (grudgingly) paid off.
I returned home dirty, whacked out, covered in scratches and oil etc, but triumphantly clutching my £5 note. Never again.

I am beginning to think that the System actually wants a nuclear war with Russia. Maybe Europe, including the UK, is to be largely wiped out, leaving only (partly-intact) North America, China, and the less-populated parts of Russia…
One of the characteristics of our time is rich people paying huge amounts of money for trash, such as Internet “art”, non-fungible tokens etc, not to mention actual “art” trash, such as that produced by the likes of Tracey Emin and Damien Hirst.

Bad-joke MP and one-time, rather briefly, practising and/or employed barrister, David Lammy, like quite a few of the blacks, thinks that Jesus Christ was “a refugee“. George Galloway, ex-MP, puts him, somewhat, in his place…
Lammy is no doubt welcome at Lincoln’s Inn, the Inn of Court to which he belongs. He may be a Bencher there —a member of the governing body— I do not know. I myself was a member of Lincoln’s Inn from 1986 until the Jew lobby procured my (wrongful/unlawful) disbarment in 2016 (so triggering expulsion from the Inn as well). So Lammy is welcome but I am not welcome. Sour grapes aside…is that not absolutely stupid and ridiculous?
Many areas of England, especially but not exclusively in the South, are becoming overcrowded in the extreme, with green bits gradually being filled in by private developments of little houses, developments without decent gardens or public parks, all because local authorities allow developers almost free rein, and because, on the big picture level, immigration and births to immigrants are swamping us.
