Radio 4 Today Programme

Heard half an hour of what used to be called the BBC’s “flagship news show on radio”. Do they have the cheek to still use that description? I hope not. Terrible. Dull in the extreme: Covid Covid Covid blah blah, Covid Covid Covid blah blah. Rubbish presented as news and “analysis”. Pathetic.

Rachel Reeves, the pro-Israel lobby MP (nominally “Labour”) was on, talking about David Cameron-Levita, Boris Johnson, and the breaking of the Ministerial Code. All very earnest, superficially, and I am sure that a few people in the Westminster Bubble were interested, but not 99% or more of the British people.

BBC Four

Now it seems that the BBC may be about to kill off or ruin one of the few decent parts of the BBC still left, television station BBC Four. Typical. The BBC must be defunded. It is more or less “Soviet TV” now, just a craven mouthpiece of the government in power. It has lost all legitimacy and credibility.

Interesting discussion. Britain should have a scientific institute akin to the one-time SS-Ahnenerbe [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe]. Part of such an institute would be for research into history, archaeology, heredity etc, but another and equally important part would be devoted to research into ways to evolve humanity in general and European/”white” people in particular to higher levels; in other words, the creation of higher race-forms in every way. The “design” of a higher race, if you like.

Believe it or not, the bastard being discussed is David Cameron-Levita! I thought that there could scarcely be a worse Prime Minister…until Theresa May and then Boris-Idiot came along. All three part-Jew, by the way… [addendum: I have now been told that the PM under discussion was in fact Blair. “Best PM ever“? I think not! A complete NWO/ZOG puppet, whose hastily-passed laws and policies still impede us today].

Startling ignorance of course, though rather highlighting the Hitchens “Oxford” obsession (he lives there). Not everyone knows the sex of even famous people, if the names are unusual.

When I started Bar practice in London in the early 1990s, I was given one of my relatively few Crown Court cases (I always did more public, administrative and civil law, as compared to criminal).

The case involved the sale of counterfeit tapes, and was set down for trial, to be heard at Snaresbrook Crown Court. One of the artistes allegedly copied was Shabba Ranks. My first question to the clerk at Chambers was “who’s she?“. Not a good start (it’s a “he”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shabba_Ranks).

That was not my first Crown Court trial (the first having been a case of “s.18” GBH, aka “GBH with intent”, a serious charge carrying a maximum sentence of life imprisonment), but it was at any rate one of the first few.

I was always lucky in the Crown Court, partly because, as a mainly non-crime barrister, I never graduated to the really serious criminal cases such as murder, terrorism etc. The most serious cases rarely result in acquittal, because the evidence is usually very strong and often overwhelming.

Well, anyway…more by luck than judgment, I did manage to do OK in my counterfeit tapes trial, after (on the first morning), the Prosecution told me that they were discontinuing (on the ground of cost, the cost of proving via forensic science that the tapes concerned actually were not genuine). Thus my defence, based mainly on an arguably implausible alibi, was never tested.

Incidentally, I was also lucky in that “GBH with intent” trial, held in what was then the Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court (the building in Parliament Square now occupied by the Supreme Court of the UK). In that trial, the defendant, despite having stabbed the thuggish “victim”, and then having poured boiling oil over him, was acquitted on the ground of self-defence.

This is more or less what has happened in the past 13 months in respect of the “virus” panic in the UK.

Hard to believe that tweeter “@TimothyNerozzi” is serious but, as Cecil King once said, no-one ever lost money by underestimating the good sense of the British people (it might have been “the intelligence of”…); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Harmsworth_King.

We have a rotten Government and an equally ridiculous official Opposition, but the idea that “the House of Windsor” could rule autocratically is beyond satire. Who exactly? The almost 100-year old Queen and Consort? Charles and Camilla? Surely not Andrew or Edward? The tame thick princelings, William and Harry? I suppose that at least Andrew and William could fly away, piloting their own helicopters, when it all went wrong…

We think of the Wall and the Stasi when we think of the GDR. But few are aware of the political correctness, the children stuffed into nurseries while their mothers were marched off to wage-slavery, the comprehensive schools and the contempt for the church.”— Take away the Wall and the Stasi and the rest is pretty much the same as 2021 Britain. Maybe that is the point that Hitchens is trying to make, in fact…

It always makes me laugh when some uncultured, semi-educated “antifascist” idiot and/or Jew calls social-national people “knuckledraggers” or the like; low culture, education, or intelligence is at least as common, I would say far more so, on the so-called “antifascist” side.

Mental illness is also very prevalent on the “antifascist” side; I have even blogged about it: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/18/theyre-coming-to-take-me-away-ha-ha/

I have no idea what that book may contain, but it may be worth reading. I shall probably read it at some point.

The facemask nonsense is now quite embedded, embedded by a mixture of fear propaganda, legal sanction, and the fact that you cannot even enter a supermarket (in practice) without wearing one, or half-wearing one.

I was at Waitrose a couple of days ago. Rabbits wearing facemasks even in the car park! I even saw one twenty-something jogging in from the street to the Waitrose car park wearing one! Despite the rabbit being that age, and alone in the cold darkness…Truly, those whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.

The (Belgian) inhabitants of Brussels must be wishing that they were still under the German Reich, for all its unavoidable wartime rigours…

All well and good, but tweeting, blogging, vlogging, and…yes…”proving” things to the malicious and inimical, will not be enough, in the end…

Gunboats should sink these invaders in mid-Channel.

Eventually, not today and not tomorrow, not even in 2022, but in 10-20 years, there will be a war of existential survival: European race, culture, and civilization against, not the non-whites as such, but against the enemies of European race, culture and civilization, whoever they are, wherever they are. Survival of Europe and its future, and extermination of all enemies of civilization and positive upward evolution.

Lammy is a dim creature. Cannot even spell “Caribbean” properly…

Lammy has displayed his ignorance many times: “In 2013, Lammy accused the BBC of making a “silly innuendo about the race” on Twitter during the announcement of the next Pontiff where the BBC tweeted “will smoke be black or white?” in reference to smoke above the Sistine Chapel. Lammy criticised the BBC’s tweet as “crass and unnecessary.โ€ He subsequently apologised after other Twitter users pointed out the role played by black and white smoke in announcing the election of a new Pope.[52][53]” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Lammy#Comments_attracting_criticism].

Thick as two short planks, ignorant, unpleasant, yet there Lammy (a member of Labour Friends of Israel) sits, a Privy Councillor no less, and Shadow Lord Chancellor, though under Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer, Labour is doing even worse than it was under Corbyn, and seems (so far) to have little or no prospect of actually being able to form a government in or before 2024.

An excellent project. In the 1970s and 1980s, a number of scrapped ships were sunk in a line off the East coast of the USA, for similar reasons.

I am reading a book called M, about that unusual and now long-gone character, Maxwell Knight [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwell_Knight].

The book was written by one Henry Hemming, who has, it seems, written other non-fiction works. A youngish man, 40-41 but looking younger in the photo inside the book’s cover; the book’s blurb says almost nothing of him; Wikipedia is also rather unforthcoming [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Hemming].

The Guardian reviewed the book: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/jul/20/m-by-henry-hemming-review-mi5.

My view? Well, a good read. Nicely written. Previous books have been written about Maxwell Knight, and I have read one of those, but about 20 years ago. Cannot recall much. This book is probably better, and certainly thicker…

There were a few things not to my liking, and which made me question the author’s grasp. One was a passage dealing with the visit of one of M’s agents to the Berchtesgaden area. The book says that there was “...a view of the Kehlsteinhaus, or Eagle’s Nest, where Hitler liked to spend much time.”

Kehlsteinhaus Obersalzberg Bavaria Germany 2004.jpg
[Kehlsteinhaus, Obersalzberg, 2004]

Well, that is wrong. Hitler did not in fact spend much time there, for one thing. He used it mainly to receive (some) guests, rather than at his house, the Berghof, which was at a lower level on the mountain.

Surely Hemming cannot have confused that “teahouse” with another one, which Hitler used almost daily? “Referred to as the “D-Haus”, short for “Diplomatic Reception House”, the Kehlsteinhaus is often conflated with theย teahouse on Mooslahnerkopf Hillย near the Berghof,[7]ย which Hitler walked to daily after lunch.[8]ย The teahouse was demolished by the Bavarian government after the war, due to its connection to Hitler.” [Wikipedia].

The other point is that the name Kehlsteinhaus is a post-1945 one. The unofficial Third Reich name, the “Eagle’s Nest”, is Adlershorst in German. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kehlsteinhaus.

Still, the book is keeping my attention.

Diary Blog, 6 March 2021, including thoughts on rewilding, occult divination, and the “white terror threat” nonsense

More propaganda

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/terrorism-arrests-uk-white-ethnic-b1812288.html

The number of white terrorism suspects being arrested in Britain has outstripped those of Asian appearance for the third year in a row.

Official figures show that 89 white people were arrested on suspicion of terror offences in 2020, compared with 63 Asian suspects, 15 black suspects and 18 of other ethnicities.

Almost one-third of arrests had resulted in a charge by the end of December.” [The Independent]

So only about 20 or 25 white British persons were charged (with something, but not necessarily “terrorism”-related offences).

We have seen, in recent months and years, many people, mainly young, arrested, some charged and (despite a number of acquittals) some sentenced to fairly long periods of imprisonment on the basis of evidence that would have shamed the Star Chamber, or some 1950s socialist satellite-state’s “people’s court”: Swastika-shaped cookie-cutters, Swastika designs on cushions, young men shooting their mouths off in pubs about killing MPs, young men buying Samurai swords (what century is this?!) for supposedly murderous purposes; young women naming their babies Adolf etc…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Chamber].

What I see in the msm is mainly some contrived “cases” based on evidence much of which shows completely lawful activity (see above) which is then twisted into a “terrorism” narrative by police, MI5 perhaps, and the CPS.

Of course, now that political groups can be “banned” by System political decision, all that the police and CPS have to do is weave a web suggesting that X belongs, or has belonged, to Y or Z organization.

If someone decides to commit an offence, then that is their decision and they take the risk of the consequences, but much of what we have seen is quite obviously a manufactured “terror threat” tailor-made for the newspapers and TV to present as a reason to further repress free speech and free political activity by white British people.

Well, there’s a surprise! “Antifa” cheerleader Mike Stuchbery interested in the Tarot. Truly, as the Russian proverb has it, “the soul of another is a dark wood“! [ั‡ัƒะถะฐั ะดัƒัˆะฐ ั‚ะตะผะฝั‹ะน ะปะตั].

I was once, especially in the 1980s, very interested in different systems of divination: tarot, astrology, the I Ching etc. I settled on the I Ching as the one that worked best for me, though astrology can be accurate too; I don’t mean the rubbish found in newspaper columns; I used to cast my own charts using ephemeris tables etc (no computer programmes in those days, at least not for me). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ephemeris; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Ching.

The one time head of the Secret Intelligence Service, Sir Maurice Oldfield, was very interested in occult methods or disciplines such as astrology (both Western and Chinese), and in a Chinese system called “Nine Star Ki” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9_Star_Ki].

Oldfield apparently used a mixture of methods as a way of assessing character. For example, he is said to have remarked upon the fact that, using both Western and Chinese astrology, Kim Philby was a “Capricornian Pig”: see https://www.amazon.co.uk/Biography-Sir-Maurice-Oldfield/dp/0356104001. [Caveat: not everyone regards Deacon as the most veracious writer on the subject(s) of espionage and intelligence, but his books are interesting and original; see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_McCormick].

John le Carre [David Cornwell] had one of his characters call “Control” (the head of the Secret Service in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), “a positive serpent“. Oldfield was certainly (one reads) a very complex character, probably one model for le Carre’s character, “Smiley”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Oldfield;

In that Western/Chinese conflation, I would be a “Virgoan Monkey”! Western (sun in) Virgo, Chinese Monkey (Fire Monkey, 1956).

Diary Blog, 25 February 2021

Was just watching a quite interesting film, After the Dark: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/After_the_Dark

Watching that film brought to mind my blogging on the theme of the re-creation or rebuilding of an advanced white Northern European (or post-Aryan) society if terrible events should strike down our present world. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/.

We often spend time doing things such as trying to gain ordinary political traction, or defending ourselves against the onslaught of nonsense (malicious complaints to social media organizations, police etc) from the Jew-Zionist element and their “antifa” idiot-serfs, or commenting on the events of the day.

All of the above are of course necessary, but we should never forget that our primary focus should be the creation of a new and better society, together with the race and culture which should and must underpin that new society.

Society consists of people, and the most important thing of all is the production of sufficient numbers of white Northern European children, properly brought up and educated.

We, as white Northern Europeans, are facing existential peril. Call it “the Great Replacement” or simply “White Genocide”. Whatever. For example, in the world as a whole, only a few percent of people in this world are actually ethnically European, even broadly.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_people (n.b.the most populous regions, i.e. those of Asia, especially China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, which four states comprise nearly half the world population, are not covered in that article).

More directly, our own European societies have faced, in the past half century or so, unprecedented migration invasion. Since the fall of the socialist world (i.e. since 1989) and particularly since the disruptions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the fall of Gaddafi in Libya, a gigantic wave of migration-invasion has hit Europe.

We have seen how the evil cabals of the international conspiracy have helped that invasion, and funnelled the invaders from Africa and Asia to Europe, even to the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia etc; even to Iceland!

We have our backs to the wall, but all is not lost. The world may soon face destruction on a scale that may dwarf even the terrible events of the Second World War. If (when) that happens, we as white Northern European social nationalists may be mere bystanders and/or victims, but after the corrupt old world is destroyed (in large measure) we shall have both the opportunity and the duty to create a new society out of the ruins of the old.

School exams

It seems that, for the second year in a row, schools will mark the exams of their pupils, thus throwing away any rigour or credibility in the public examination system. For God’s sake, just check that the pupils are all breathing, then chuck them all “A” grades. They will love it, their parents will love it, the schools will love it and this shite “government” will love it. Sweeties for all! Meanwhile, in the real world…

Diary Blog, 4 February 2021, including more thoughts about Labour Party and SNP chances

Labour Party

I have blogged many times about the Labour Party. An important topic, in that the UK has a basically binary system which was Liberal Party v. Conservative and Unionist Party until just after the First World War, then Labour Party v. Conservative Party. A situation which still pertains, and which, from the psychological point of view, emerges from the typical British mindset of “rivalry”, which also results in the British love of sporting rivalry, paticularly in team sports.

I saw the tweets below:

Lewis joined the Army and toured in Afghanistan“. Very naive. Clive Lewis, a person of mixed race, joined the Territorial Army as commissioned officer, then did three months in Afghanistan, as far as publicly known not seeing any action, after which he had a breakdown or meltdown on return to the UK. More of a gap year misadventure than Bravo Two Zero

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clive_Lewis_(politician)

Goodwin’s main point is that Labour must show itself “patriotic”, which apparently means waving a flag or wearing a red poppy once a year. Hard advice to follow when the voters know that Labour under Blair and Brown uined Britain by deliberately importing millions of blacks and browns, who have since been breeding prolifically.

True, the “Conservative” Party record on mass immigration is almost as bad, and now is getting worse, part-Jew Boris-idiot having now decided to allow entry to as may as 6 million Hong Kong Chinese, 300,000 of whom are expected to arrive within a few months! That however, will not help Labour much.

As Goodwin correctly says, though, Labour is now a party of “London progressives” (in terms of members and supporters); its voting base among English and Welsh voters (meaning white people) has all but collapsed, making Labour reliant on “the blacks and browns” and/or those employed by the State and its offshoots such as the NHS.

The 2019 General Election made plain that the Labour vote is only about a third of the total vote. Core vote? Maybe 25%.

There is a ray of hope for Labour, in that persons under 30, maybe more under 24, seem better disposed towards Labour (that may also have an ethnic dimension, because the proportion of blacks and browns is increasing in that part of the age demographic as those populations breed). However, the under-24s are notoriously non-voting.

I recently blogged about Labour in terms of what would happen if Scotland left the UK: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/02/02/diary-blog-2-january-2021-2/; and generally: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/01/27/diary-blog-27-january-2021-including-a-few-thoughts-about-the-labour-party/

I wonder how many SNP supporters know, accept, or care about that prediction? Few, probably.

The belated rise of the long-struggling SNP has been remarkable. The SNP was founded in 1934, yet took 33 years to get its first MP (Winnie Ewing, in a 1967 by-election). Between 1967 and 2015, the SNP representation at Westminster swung between 1 and 7; on the eve of the 2015 General Election, the SNP still had only 6 MPs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party#House_of_Commons_2.

In a sense, the most remarkable thing about the SNP is how its post-2014 rise at Westminster shows up the absurdity of FPTP voting. In 2015, the SNP landslide —56 out of 59 Scottish Westminster seats— was achieved on the back of only 50% of the actual popular vote in Scotland.

At Holyrood (the Scottish Parliament), elected under a fairer —proportional representation— system, the SNP has never won more than about half of the MSP seats: 69 out of 129 in 2011, and 63 out of 129 in 2016: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party#Scottish_Parliament_2. It will be interesting to see what happens later this year. The SNP representation at Holyrood broadly equates to the support for Scottish Independence. Somewhere around 50-50, so far.

I do not hold myself out as any kind of expert on Scottish politics, and in fact have never been North of Hadrian’s Wall, but it seems to me that SNP support comes from two main directions: voters committed to “Independence”, and voters disgusted by the other major parties, and so voting by default. An overlapping Venn diagram.

At any rate, as I have recently and previously blogged, if the SNP manage to wrest Scotland away from the UK, that pretty much sinks Labour in England and Wales, at least in terms of being a party of government.

Germany is a dustbin now, ruled and/or strongly influenced by Jews, full of Central European and Eastern European (ethnically non-European) Gypsies. I noticed the decline in standards, from when it was mostly West Germany, when I returned for the first time in 13 years in 2001. Huge numbers of non-Europeans in Munich (which city looked quite scruffy as well).

That minor msm radio drone, “@adamgarriereal”, has no conception of the evil wrought by the “holocaust” mythus and the connected quasi-heresy laws extant in several countries (not in the UK, but the System politicians, msm etc operate a kind of unwritten “holocaust” “denial” law). Once you start to criminalize or demonize truth by mandating “official truth”, Pandora’s Box is open, and out fly not only “holocaust” “denial” laws or quasi-laws, but the description of other dissenting views as “denial”…

I was once trolled (on Twitter, some years ago) by a whole group of idiots grouped around one very stupid woman who thought herself terribly clever, a nurse (oh, yes, one of those supposedly caring, sharing people…) from the North West of England. I had to block about 15, and they had no choice but to FO. Such people are very tiny minds (as can be seen in the tweets of some of the “antifascist” and allied Jew-Zionist crowds).

I will be fun, if it becomes mandatory to use your own name on social media, to see who exactly trolled me in the past (some still comment about me). Then we’ll see what happens. What fun!

I just read a few of the tweets of “@eldram_artwork”. Two minutes of my life wasted, minutes that I shall never get back.

Not at present, but our “religion” must be that of positive evolution into the future and far future. As Soloviev put it, “Godmanhood”…

The present “white race” of post-Atlantean humanity is not merely an evolutionary summit; it is also the basis for future evolution.

Diary Blog, 3 February 2021, including more thoughts about prepping

Prepping

I have written before about “prepping” in the UK or Western European context. Those articles can be found using the search box on this blog.

In essence, I made a distinction between the kind of “prepping” or survivalism appropriate (arguably) in North America, and that appropriate in Western Europe and particularly the UK.

I also distinguished between pure survivalism on an individual and/or small group basis, and the kind of community “prepping” that might keep culture and civilization alive, forming a germinal ethnostate that might later blossom into something that might replace the lost world (the one in which we live at present).

Today, I want to address the steps that individuals can take to be more prepared for what might be coming. I mean realistic measures, not involving disappearing into the Scottish Highlands with a Swiss Army knife and a box of Swan Vestas.

To deal with the least likely scenario first, my blog posts about the formation of social-national communities (also available via the search box on here) covered the sort of situation where an individual or family have the means to buy a country estate, a farm, or a detached house with land or at least a large garden area.

An acre or two of land is enough to feed one person, possibly several people, depending on diet. A rule of thumb might be 1.5 acres per person. So a family of four might need 6 acres, well within the amount of land often found attached to houses in the country (as distinct from “country houses” stricto sensu).

The more one moves away from a purely vegetable, fruit and nut diet, the more land is necessary. A single tomato plant (a single seed may cost from 1p to 40p) can produce 30 pounds weight over a season; in exceptional conditions, 80 pounds weight.

At present in the UK, one can keep up to 20 chickens without notifying officialdom (DEFRA). 20 chickens will produce about 15 eggs per day, so if about 6 are required, you should only need about 8 chickens.

Anyone in the fortunate position of starting off with such property can improve its survival possibilities by, firstly, making it independent of the electricity grid. Solar panels for electricity, and (assuming roof space is available) the other kind of solar panels for production of hot water: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_panel; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_water_heating.

Such panels do not last forever. After 20 years they lose efficiency. Still, well worth having, and it may be possible to store some against a future collapse of society.

Ground heat exchange can heat a house for free once installed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geothermal_heat_pump.

There are more traditional improvements to houses that can help save heat: insulation is one; roof, between attic and main floors, within walls. Another is double-glazing. In the UK, this is usually within a module, the panes not far apart. In other countries, such as Russia and Kazakhstan (where I once lived for a year), the panes are built in, and can be six inches or even a foot apart. They can usually be opened (in older buildings), and some people grow pot plants in the space. In some buildings in central and northern Russia, there is even triple-glazing. Ventilation is via a small window in the corner of each large window, that small window being called a fortochka.

Electricity can also be generated from small-scale hydropower, depending on whether a river or stream is nearby; it need not be expensive or complicated: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pico_hydro. Small and very small readymade systems can be installed for a few thousand or even a few hundred pounds;

It may be worth having a generator which works off petrol or diesel, for short-term emergency use only. Expensive (at cheapest, several hundred pounds, usually more, in the low thousands). This usually requires construction of a fuel holding tank, which is also expensive, and potentially hazardous. Still, a generator may be worth having, despite its noisiness, with the idea of using it for a hour or two per day, perhaps in the evening, or purely for emergency power.

Not much electricity can be produced by human effort, though there are bicycle generators which produce enough power for a light bulb and or small devices such as radios etc while the pedalling continues. A relay of two or three connected to a charging battery could therefore produce perhaps two or three hours of small-use electricity for an hour of pedalling.

Small-scale wind turbines can produce enough for basic purposes, as an addition to the mix.

Traditional heating still has its uses: open fires or, more efficient, woodburning stoves.

Cheap coal is mostly to be banned soon in the UK (for domestic use), but a remote country house is unlikely to be checked out, and in conditions of societal collapse there would be no men with clipboards anyway. It is probably possible to buy a stockpile of, say, 100 tons of wet coal, fairly cheaply now if you know people. The approved kind of smokeless coal costs far more, about ยฃ300 per ton.

There are useful items that can be charged by human effort (wind-ups): radios, lamps etc.

There are table and other lamps that are powered by batteries that are recharged via solar power.

The country house owner may wish to install useful small-scale equipment for use in times of collapse: cider presses, threshing machines, nut-oil presses etc. It costs less than you think. Hundreds rather than thousands, usually. Also, the sort of equipment that can produce home-made beer or cider. I tried making beer once or twice when I had the lease of a large country house in Cornwall many years ago. My efforts were, putting it kindly, crowned with only modest success. Practice makes perfect, or as the Russians say, “repetition is the mother of learning” (it rhymes in Russian).

The next thing for the country house or farm owner to do will be to increase horticultural growing capacity. Greenhouses, a large orangerie or, more modestly, polytunnels: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orangery; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenhouse; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polytunnel

[polytunnel]

[cucumber growing in a greenhouse, Minnesota, 1910]
[Royal Greenhouses, Laeken, Belgium]

[1760s orangerie, Kuskovo, Moscow]

[Grand Orangerie, Peterhof/Petrodvorets, St. Petersburg region]

Whatever the scale of residence of the prepper, there can be improvements made.

Water purification is also key, in case the mains supply is cut off. Many but not all country residencies have a private supply. When I lived in Cornwall, the country house had its own abundant supply from a spring. When I moved to a more modest place, a 6-bed farmhouse on the Devon side of the Tamar, that also had its own supply. I read somewhere that somewhere between 5% and 10% of the UK population have access to private water supply. Surprisingly high, if accurate.

Something that almost everyone can do is to lay in extra longlife food. In his interesting memoirs, Drink and Ink, once-famous writer Dennis Wheatley [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Wheatley] describes how, in his late 1930s newspaper column, he advised his readers (in 1938 or 1939) to stock up on dried and tinned food. He did so himself, and later wrote that when rationing was mandated (1941), he and his family got through the war far better as a result.

Tinned food is good (in the sense of edible) for far longer than the 2-5 years “Best Before” date. Some dried foods, eg white rice, are OK (if kept very dry) for 20 years.

There is no need for immediate bulk buying. A few tins or bags of rice extra whenever shopping should do it.

People should lay in a supply of seeds, and of course a range of equipment relating to horticulture, as well as small but always useful items such as nutcrackers, kitchen equipment, matches, lighters, tealights and candles.

The same goes for first aid stuff: bandages, band aids (in England, “plasters”), and so on. Painkillers and other proprietary medicines (they become less effective over time, but better half a pint than none…). All useful; we saw in 2020 what happens when, suddenly, loo paper, kitchen roll, pasta, flour, antiseptic products etc become unavailable.

The above should at least be a basis for further research for people interested in mitigating the effects of a possible societal meltdown.

Ha ha. Made me laugh… I recall when I was a trustee of an educational charity some 30 years ago. The unofficial supporters were mostly women, very nice but very willing to talk endlessly. There is a skill to handling such situations.

You can see the likely result, as has happened before in France and elsewhere (eg when David Duke was cheated out of his Senate win in Louisiana many years ago): the supposedly “far right” or nationalist candidate gets into the final two, only for the self-describing “Left” to abandon all principle and endorse the System finance-capitalist candidate, who then “wins the election”. Rigged.

“Will be released at age 36″… I have always opposed capital punishment as such, but it probably will be necessary at some stage to restore order by putting up against a wall a few thousand of this sort. The wider question, though, is how to build a better society, an advanced society. You cannot do that when huge numbers of socio-ethnic degenerates exist.

Ha ha!

Well, “Dr.” Raw does have a point. True, Labour is closer behind the Conservative Party than was the case at the 2019 General Election, but that is mainly because the Jewish press (both msm and otherwise) has almost stopped demonizing Labour now that Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer is leader.

Still, looking at the incompetence and nonsense of the present ZOG/NWO regime at Downing Street, it might have been expected that Labour would be miles ahead. It might be, were it a real Opposition, but Starmer just supports everything that “Boris”-idiot is doing, but says that it should be done more! Lockdown, the facemask nonsense, you name it. On immigration, Labour cannot attack the Government’s poor record, because Labour still favours mass immigration…

Overall, Labour looks pretty sad.

An elderly lady I once knew used to say, in the 1980s, if a picture of Brittan came up on TV, “doesn’t that snout just need kicking?!

Ironic…if I am not mistaken, that “antifascist” tweeter, “@jdpoc” (who in the past has tweeted against me) was quite recently tweeting something online about his own “issues”…

Par for the course, it seems.

I could write a book about the immigration cases I did in the early 1990s; I appeared before immigration tribunals at first instance, in the Immigration Appeal Tribunal, and also in the High Court (on judicial review applications).

Some cases were run of the mill, involving marriages etc, others involved fugitive members of foreign secret services, and yet others alleged members of extremist or “terrorist” groups (mostly Kurdish).

Last word of the day…

MSM going mad about Russian police and their rough tactics. The Russian police are rough at times. Russia is a rough country. So what is the excuse of the Dutch police, who on the weekend were using mounted police, water cannon, and rubber bullets on pensioners and young women (among others) protesting about the “lockdown” repression? The Dutch mounted police were filmed cracking open the heads of fleeing protestors with heavy clubs.

Strangely enough, the UK msm went mad today about Russia, but forgot to mention the Netherlands. BBC propaganda was blatant. All very (((odd))).

Diary Blog, 20 January 2021

In responding to the grandeur of the stars, the only answer is awe.

Where will people turn when the time comes?

I caught the last 5-10 mins of Radio 4 Today Programme. Some fellow whose voice betrayed his smug certainty of knowing “the truth”…That person managed to get away with several meaningless statements such as “populism is Right Wing” (“rightwing” stopped being a useful descriptor decades if not centuries ago), finishing up with the assertion that “populists” were trying to “latch on to anti-lockdown protests” but that would not help the “populists” because it put them in the same place as “the nutters who think that the virus is caused by 5G“.

Well, I don’t think that many imagine that “the virus” is or was caused by 5G, though there seems to be at least some evidence that 5G has deleterious health effects. After all, the public were told for decades that high-tension power lines caused no health problems. Now?

There is no known mechanism by which magnetic fields of the type generated by high voltage power lines can play a role in cancer development. Nevertheless, epidemiologic research has rather consistently found associations between residential magnetic field exposure and cancer.” [Forbes Magazine] https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevensalzberg/2014/09/01/do-high-voltage-power-lines-cause-cancer/?sh=254028206497

Not understanding why something happens is not the same as something not happening.

Moving back to “populism”, I think that it is true that mere populism is usually short-lived, built as it is on the shifting sands of public opinion. Without ideological structure, a populist protest movement is a jellybag and cannot create anything lasting. I noted that in previous blog posts about the EDL and the “Football Lads’ Alliance”: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/10/09/football-lads-alliance-march/

The sine qua non is ideology. After that, structure and organization. Numbers come later.

In the UK, stormy times lie ahead. The necessity is for an ideologically-sound advance guard, leading a tightly-controlled party. Once that exists, numbers will come and the people will respond, in the right external circumstances.

What group or tendency opposes the existing System in the UK? Not the self-describing “Left”, meaning the ragbag of Jews, other anti-whites, pseudo-socialists, “refugees welcome” dimwits, and “antifascists” (etc). They, indeed, are more loyal to the System even than “normie” “conservatives”! You only have to look at their favourite echo-chamber, Twitter. They want stricter “lockdown” “rules”, more censorship, arrests of dissidents (sometimes even those who themselves are self-describing “Left”-oriented). They support the “rights” of transnational exploitative companies such as Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, and mostly want to “deplatform” those of whose views they disapprove (if they cannot have them arrested or attacked), while themselves retaining the Twitter accounts which are their main focus in life.

The above types are almost invariably in the pocket, in effect, of the Jewish lobby, despite the fact that that lobby despises them. You only have to look at Corbyn, McDonnell and other Labour Party idiots. They were still singing the praises of the Jews, and supporting the “holocaust” farrago, even as the Zionists toppled them and stamped on them! Political masochism.

The weakness of the pseudo-socialists (etc) is made manifest when they want to attack, eg social-nationalists. They appeal to authority in the shape of the officials of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, or the police. Just like the Jewish lobby, in fact…

The strength or, rather, weakness of the self-describing “Left” was exposed in the 2019 General Election. Weak as weak could be.

The self-describing “Left” has pretty much given up on trying to create a better society or a “revolution”. Its main aim now is negative: to “defeat” those it opposes by having them “deplatformed” or, in their wildest dreams, arrested by the System police and convicted eventually of some so-called “hate crime”. The obvious example is that of Alison Chabloz (convicted of satirizing “holocaust” fakery in song), but there are several others.

[Alison Chabloz]

There is every chance that, if a credible social-national party can emerge and survive for a while, circumstances and events might propel it to power far faster than most imagine. There is no real opposition to that except the System itself; the other would-be contenders (the pseudo-socialists etc) are just a wall of noisy squawking on Twitter. They have no power.

Even more or less mainstream journalists such as Peter Hitchens are now being shadowbanned, censored, even deplatformed. First they came for the…”Nazis”?...

You can see what is happening. The international conspiracy first censored and “deplatformed” social-national people such as me (the Jews had me chucked off Twitter in 2018), and anything likely to make people think twice about whether Hitler was “evil” (hence the banning on YouTube of almost all 1930s or “Third Reich” material).

Then came the turn of the “alt-Right”, such as Katie Hopkins, Tommy Robinson etc; and also those with interesting dissident views. David Icke, for example.

Now, we see that the caravan has moved on. Mainstream journalists are being censored and banned. YouTube even took off, for a while, the channel of talkRadio, a major UK radio station, and I believe that some material is still banned.

This is all in preparation for 2022 and “the Great Reset”.

That, then, will be the chance for social-national rebirth. Then, we shall be able to say, “we’re back!

This is no co-incidence. Look at that map. Look where the dividing line is. Think back to where the Western cabals allowed the Marxist-Leninist control to extend westward: in their plans, to the Rhine, but Sovietism did not get quite that far. Now, with Russia and Eastern Europe resisting, the new plan, in part, is to eliminate at least White European Christendom in the Central and Western parts of Europe.

Anyone who supports the migration-invasion is an enemy.

Incidentally, observe the “smiling when there is no obvious reason to smile” in the very sinister Barbara Lerner Spectre: a kind of erratic rictus, like a malfunctioning back light. Very much a Jewish characteristic, and often seen on TV interviews.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savitri_Devi

Savitri Devi, circa 1937.jpg
[Savitri Devi, France 1937]

Savitri Devi Mukherji (born Maximiani Julia PortasFrench: [mak.si.mja.ni pษ”ส.tษ‘]; 30 September 1905 โ€“ 22 October 1982) was a French-born proponent of Nazism who served the Axis powers by committing espionage on the forces of the Allies of World War II in India.[1][2][3] She was later a leading member of the Nazi underground during the 1960s.[1][3][4]

Savitri was a proponent of a synthesis of Hinduism and Nazism, proclaiming Adolf Hitler to have been sent by Providence, much like an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu.[5] She believed Hitler was a sacrifice for humanity which would lead to the end of the Kali Yuga induced by the Jews, who she felt were the powers of evil.[3]

Her writings have influenced neo-Nazism and Nazi occultism,[6] and more contemporaneously, she has influenced the alt-right.[7] Rejecting Judeo-Christianity, she believed in a form of pantheistic monism; a single cosmos of nature composed of divine energy-matter.[8] Within neo-Nazism, she promoted occultismecology,[9] and the New Age movement. She also influenced the Chilean diplomat Miguel Serrano. In 1982, Franco Freda published a German translation of her work Gold in the Furnace, and the fourth volume of his annual review, Risguardo (1980โ€“), was devoted to Savitri Devi as the “missionary of Aryan Paganism“.[1]

Devi was a pioneer in animal rights activism, and was a vegetarian from a young age and held ecologist views in her works. She wrote The Impeachment of Man in 1959 in India[3] in which she declared her views on animal rights and nature. According to her, human beings do not stand above the animals; but in her ecologist views, humans are rather a part of the ecosystem and should respect all life, including animals and the whole of nature.

She always held radical views on vegetarianism[3] and supported the death penalty for those who did not “respect nature or animals”. She once broke into laboratories and took animals being held there, releasing them from being used in experiments.[citation needed] She believed that vivisectioncircusesslaughter and fur industries among others do not belong in a civilized society.”

Her most famous book:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lightning_and_the_Sun

A lightning bolt and a Nazi swastika in front of the Sun. Book title at top, author name in middle

Begun in 1948, completed in 1956, and first published in 1958 in Calcutta, she said it “could be described as a personal answer to the events of 1945 and of the following years.” It is dedicated “To the god-like Individual of our times; the Man against Time; the greatest European of all times; both Sun and Lightning: Adolf Hitler, as a tribute of unfailing love and loyalty, for ever and ever.”[3][5] It opens with quotations from The Bhagavad Gita and Rudolf Hess.” [Wikipedia]

NHS

Recently, information (secondhand, but thought reliable) about the state of the NHS. Dire. Not “because of COVID”, though made worse by the extra admissions, perhaps. It is just maladministered, and also has attitudinal problems, not universal, that are reducing it to a “Soviet” level in some respects. There is also the effect of mass immigration, which has increased the UK population from about 56 million in the 1960s to about 66 million today. Huge increase, huge extra demand.

Trump and Presidential pardons

Trump has once again been proven a huge disappointment. Had the chance to pardon Snowden, Assange, and especially the social-national prisoners in Federal prisons. Result? A big fat zero.

Private Eye was worth reading, long ago (30+ years ago), though it always had the seeds of its own decadence and destruction within it. Its creators and readers were largely the kind of people who would like Monty Python, those better at poking fun from a comfortable perch than anything else. The sort of people who probably really like Michael Palin’s smug travel shows.

Like (the now long-defunct) Soviet humour mag, Krokodil. Like HIGNFY. In other words, “approved humour”, fronted by some boring drone like Paul Merton.

In fact, political correctness and “wokeness” has pretty much killed off satirical humour. God help any humorist now who laughs at (inter alia) Jews, “holocaust” fakery and/or hoaxes, the blacks, “Black Lives Matter”, facemask-wearing rabbits etc…

TV weather girl, in the open air, at some place in the Yorkshire countryside, with a gale blowing, with heavy rain falling, and she is wearing a facemask muzzle! This is pure propaganda.

We have to put an end to all this nonsense.

In wars of existential survival, the enemy have only won when the last round has been fired and, in our present world, when no European person is left standing.

Naturally, the designation, “Middle Britain”, or as more often seen, “Middle England”, is indefinite. It is harder to say what it includes than to say what it excludes: the very wealthy, what passes for “the aristocracy”, the vast mass of poorly-paid people, the unemployed etc. I suppose, the ethnic minorities too.

A more fruitful enquiry is to ask what kind of movement might capture at least a plurality of hearts and minds.

The present System has political parties which represent anything but “Middle England” (or most British people generally).

The Labour Party is now, in broad-brush terms, really just the party of the blacks and browns, and of the public service sector, particularly the NHS.

The Conservative Party is really the party of the uber-wealthy, both British and exotic, though for tactical reasons having to chuck crumbs to “Middle England” and the rest.

As for the LibDems, they are really a washed-up remnant now, representing nothing much beyond a protest having to do with anything from anti-Brexit to rubbish collection. I imagine that, were he still around, Jo Grimond would have his head in his hands! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo_Grimond (incidentally, his memoirs are well worth reading).

All System parties are pervaded by the Jewish-Zionist element; that is particularly true of the now-ruling Conservative Party. The present Cabinet is entirely composed of members of Conservative Friends of Israel. Several are actually Jewish or part-Jewish, and several of the rest are also non-European, mainly Indian.

Britain needs a new movement, partly though not only to be expressed through a political party.

Prepping

In the USA, with its vast areas of wilderness and other open land, “prepping” has become a popular topic over past decades: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivalism.

The term “prepping” is wide in its ambit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivalism#Outline_of_scenarios_and_outlooks.

In previous years, I blogged a number of times about “prepping” as applied to our more constricted European or UK environment:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/16/new-communities-in-england-and-wales-for-social-nationalists/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/17/how-would-the-safe-zone-become-a-germinal-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/10/22/why-should-people-relocate-to-the-safe-zone-of-the-germinal-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/10/getting-real-about-repatriation-creation-of-the-british-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/03/04/the-way-forward-for-social-nationalism-in-the-uk/amp/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/02/04/white-flight-in-a-small-country/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/09/17/europe-will-soon-be-in-chaos-we-can-create-a-new-civilization-from-that/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/05/the-pressing-need-for-safe-zones-in-the-uk-and-across-europe/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/10/17/post-collapse-survival-preservation-of-civilization-and-culture/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/12/20/from-secure-base-to-national-power/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/24/concentration-of-resident-supporters-in-the-germinal-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/10/fortress-centres-of-culture-and-science/.

Thoughts about wider issues but connected to the above are found here: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/.

On the individual level, and in the UK, what can the individual do, as he or she contemplates the encroaching police state, the massive output of System propaganda (particularly around race-mixing and, now, the “panicdemic”) and other signs that an alien society is being prepared? We have no vast wilderness areas into which to go, unlike preppers in the USA, Canada and elsewhere.

The first thing is to cut as many ties to the System as possible. To cut all is impossible for most UK people, but one can reduce connection to a minimum.

To be an employee on a salary is not good. It puts you in the power of a employer and, in general, System power-hubs: tax authorities etc.

To be a member of a regulated profession, even if self-employed, is also not so good. You are tied-in to a Zionist-control scenario these days.

The best scenario, short of being fortunate enough to already have a sizeable capital (whether through one’s own activity, through inheritance, or via something such as a large Lottery win), is to be self-employed in such a manner as to be free of most System regulation (especially re. one’s views).

What if dependent on small State-provided or other income, such as a pension, or DWP benefits? No difference. Leave the major cities and towns. Relocate, and try to link with persons of similar mind and ideology.

The practical trades are, as Nick Griffin has opined, optimal for cutting System ties: car repair, self-employed building or repair, self-employed garden work, operation of a cafe or restaurant (“virus” restrictions permitting), hair-cutting, smallholding and farming. There are numerous other possibilities. You get the idea, anyway. Most such trades are also portable, able to move location easily enough.

If possible, move away from the large cities, which are doomed. UK people cannot, most of them, relocate to anything akin to “wilderness” or remote countryside, but can get away from places such as London.

Relocate to small towns and villages or, if you can afford it, to country houses, country estates, farms, or smallholdings, even if only a house with a few acres on which you can grow fruits, vegetables, and nut trees. Bealtaine Cottage (Ireland) and other similar experiments are very interesting: https://twitter.com/PermaGoddess; https://bealtainecottage.com/

It is possible to feed one person, on a vegetarian basis, on a fraction of an acre, though a more realistic acreage is about 1 acre or so. The less veggie-oriented, the more land is required, though chickens can produce about 1 egg every 2 days, and under existing DEFRA rules, persons in the country can keep 20 chickens without having to register with DEFRA.

Try to be off-grid re. electricity and other energy required: heat exchange technology, solar panels (one kind produces warm/hot water, the other produces electricity); if environmental factors etc are in favour, small wind turbines, and hydropower (micro or even pico); also, obviously, wood-burning stoves.

The Internet is key, while it exists. Another good idea, for communication linkage in any future disaster scenario, would be ham radio.

The American Mormons, I believe, try to stockpile up to 2 years’ supplies of basic items. A good idea. Some dried foods (eg white rice), if kept really dry, can be OK for 20 years. Canned goods are safe for years, even decades, though the quality in terms of taste etc may deteriorate after the Best Before date shown on the tin. At any rate, good for years.

Other items can also be stockpiled. We have just seen, in 2020, how quickly loo-paper, soap etc can disappear from sale.

The above need not mean bulk-buying. Just buy a few extra items every time you shop.

Other useful items? For me, the list would include such as candles, tea-lights; handcranked lights, torches [Am. flashlights], and radios; also, solar-powered outside lights. Garden/horticultural tools. Home-bottling and canning supplies. Seeds. Firelighters. Matches. Cigarette lighters (for lighting fires).Just a few of the possibilities.

In his interesting memoirs, Drink and Ink, the writer Dennis Wheatley [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Wheatley] says that, in his late-1930s newspaper column, he recommended to readers that they stock up on tinned food. He did the same. When rationing was introduced in 1940 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationing_in_the_United_Kingdom#Second_World_War_1939%E2%80%931945], he was thus able to soldier on easier than those not so prepared. Canning technology has improved immeasurably since those days.

For those with children, I would urge homeschooling. Contrary to what many believe, this is fully-lawful: https://www.gov.uk/home-education; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeschooling

For me, the aim of the above would not be, merely, for isolated individuals and families to survive, but for them to form a web of survival, the kernel of which might become a new society.
