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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some tweets seen about the issues raised:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TV detective drama

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

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

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

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

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

Police priorities

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11250119/Police-catching-criminals-not-involving-Twitter-chief-constable-warns.html

Police should spend more time catching criminals than involving themselves in ‘spats on Twitter‘ and attempts at ‘inclusion’ like dancing on duty, a chief constable has warned. 

Andy Marsh, who has been head of the College of Policing since September 2021, said forces should prioritise reversing exceptionally low rates of solving crimes.

The guidance comes as police officers have repeatedly been warned over dancing on duty at events such as the Notting Hill festival and pride parades. 

It also follows comments from new Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who told chiefs to spend less time on ‘diversity’ and concentrate on fighting crime. 

The police executive, who was chief constable of Avon and Somerset and Hampshire, said: ‘Our new guidance on managing non-crime hate incidents, for example, is very clear: The police should not be involving themselves in spats on Twitter. 

‘It is not where the public want the police to be. We cannot pick sides on contested social issues…”

[Daily Mail]

Not before time. In particular, certain police forces (Essex, Derbyshire, Devon & Cornwall, Gloucestershire etc) have allowed themselves to be manipulated and brainwashed by the malicious Jew-Zionist pressure group calling itself “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, which pretends to be a large, important, influential organization, but in reality consists of a few dozen fanatical Jews obsessed by supposed “anti-Semitism”, and focussed also on defending the very tarnished reputation of the Israeli state.

Take a look at a few of my experiences of the past 6 years: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

Russia

Russia is in turmoil mainly because it lost its ideology when socialism collapsed around 1989. Yeltsin and his Jew kleptocracy could offer nothing to most Russians, and robbed them blind. Putin gave stability and a semblance of national dignity, but offered no new ideology, just Great Russian or “Muscovite” nationalism, a smattering of Russian Orthodox religion, and a nod or two to the partly-discredited Soviet past.

Only when Russia discovers its new ideology will it rediscover its soul, or vice versa. With that will come cohesion, and then unstoppable power.

Falling pound

We have seen the currency news reported as if it was some unexpected event suddenly falling from the sky. In fact, quite a few people (including me) have been predicting it for at least 2 years.

The whole nonsense around the “pandemic” (panicdemic) led to the UK government throwing around money like a drunken sailor, while closing down much of the economy for 1-2 years. Result— misery.

Yes, having a woolly-headed n****r as Chancellor of the Exchequer, a ridiculous half-caste nincompoop as Foreign Secretary, and above all a stupidly ignorant careerist woman as (posing as) Prime Minister, all triggered this alarming collapse in the value of sterling, but beyond all that there is the strategic question.

Britain was part of a trading bloc. Now it is alone in those terms, and the limited trade deals with Australia, Singapore etc cannot replace the main relationship with the EU. I myself favoured Brexit for several reasons, but it had to be handled properly. It never was. The governments of the past 7 years have made no serious attempt to make Brexit work properly.

It is clear that international forces look at the UK, see it being invaded by armies of breeding non-whites, see the UK’s continuing low productivity, see the lack of a sustainable forward-looking plan, and are running away…

To what extent the situation amounts to an attempt to collapse British society further, in order to further the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan throughout Europe, is an open question.

45p in the £ tax

The Liz Truss “government” is still defending the reduction in top-rate tax to 40p in the £. The argument is that the reduction will actually result in more tax coming in, in the end. Maybe, maybe not, but what it does do, immediately, is destroy any sentiment (however fake) that “we are all in this together”, i.e. social cohesion, as the highest paid are given a tax break at the very same time that most people are struggling.

Tax experts, economists etc may well argue that inflation hitting the poor and “middle” is not the same field of argument as a tax break for the rich and affluent. Tell that to the poor and “middle” of society. After all, they are, overwhelmingly, the voters.

So woolly-head Kwasi, as MP, was also getting £20,000 a year for doing very little but being on the payroll of Odey’s outfit?

Looks as though Odey’s bet paid off. A few bungs of £10,000 every 6 months, and Odey has made millions, maybe hundreds of millions, out of it.

…and all people do is tweet, or blog, about it…

Once more, I regret the absence in the UK of any credible — indeed any — social-national party. If my circumstances were different, I would cast caution to the winds and create one myself. Not yet, anyway.

So the storm of madness gathers, with Western (NWO) states, generals, suppposed “experts” all offering nuanced views on “proportionate response” to any Russian tactical nuclear strike in Ukraine (a failed “state”— corrupt, and under Jew-Zionist dictatorship— that has only existed since 1991, and with which the UK has had no treaty or other links).

War games played by the staff colleges of leading powers since the 1960s all came to the same conclusion: any first use of strategic (or even tactical) nuclear weapons in an exchange between NATO and (pre-1991) the Warsaw Pact, i.e. Russia, resulted in an all-out nuclear war.

The question now is whether NATO powers (mainly USA and UK) would attack Russia with strategic nuclear weapons if Russia attacks Ukraine with tactical nuclear weapons. It would be mad. Even within Europe, you could kiss goodbye to, inter alia, London and Paris, for a start. Still want to come up to play?

In fact, Russia might respond with an all-out attack whatever weapons and tactics NATO were to use directly against Russia.

This is not our fight. Steer clear.

Finally, without denigrating Bob Seely, a Conservative MP who was in the British Army, he did serve mostly as a sergeant, so was not concerned directly at that time with high strategy; he did receive a commission later: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Seely.

Seely has also studied these questions academically, and been a journalist (his family owns a large chunk of the Isle of Wight), but are you willing to bet your shirt, your home, or your life on that?

I do not trust journalists, System politicians, or academics specializing in “national security”, strategic studies etc. I do not even trust generals.

Once the UK, USA or any other NATO power (I doubt whether France would get involved, in fact) attacks Russia directly (including Crimea), that’s it. World War Three will be launched. Russia will launch, regardless of the motives, the nuances, the “messages” being sent etc, and we shall be lucky to live through it (if that would even be lucky).

More police nonsense

Looks as though Sussex Police are well and truly contaminated.

Seems that my blog post from 2018 is still relevant…https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/11/15/when-reality-becomes-subjective/.

Having said that, the Reich would have solved the original problem with a couple of well-aimed rounds…

Let’s see whether the new King Charles has the grit to cut adrift “the Harry formerly known as Prince” and the “royal” Mulatta. I doubt it.

Very true. People have been easily brainwashed to regard Putin and Russia as some kind of danger to the UK. If the idiots just thought for a moment, they might wonder how Russia is a threat to the UK when even the invasion and occupation of a small part of Ukraine (which, after all, was effectively part of the same country as Russia until 1991) is not going well for Russia.

As an example of the kind of stupid person who actually knows nothing yet feels the need to comment publicly, look at the tweeted reply from one Louise Down, of Kent:

Why, asks the idiot, are some of the words of the leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world being reported on?

What can one say? Has that kind of stupidity become more widespread since the population was conditioned and brainwashed during the “Covid” “panicdemic”?

I hope that some of the people who matter here, in the governments and legislatures of the West, are listening. Unfortunately, many are either NWO/ZOG drones or are anyway caught up in the delusion that the Russia-Ukraine conflict is also a Russia-UK [etc] conflict. It need not be, and is only so now because the System, including almost all of the msm, are making it so.

Ukraine has only been an independent state (failed state) for 31 years, years which have seen its people become the poorest in Europe, years of corruption and neglect.

Now the British public are told that “we” must support and even fight for that ramshackle failed state, for its mainly Jewish regime, and that said regime is one of democracy and freedom.

In fact, the Jew Zelensky and his regime have closed down all opposition parties, arrested or shot those opposed to war with Russia, and closed down all trade unions.

…thus surely proving conclusively that Liz Truss has no idea at all about economic matters, having already been proven to have no idea about foreign affairs.

I thought that the governments of Theresa May and “Boris”-idiot were bad jokes, but this present “shitshow” (in the immortal words of Johnny Mercer MP) takes the biscuit.

Thinking the unthinkable, what would happen if Russian forces were to use tactical nuclear weapons to target Kiev-regime concentrations on or near the present front line? It might be that Russian forces would also be affected. What if (thinking the even more “unthinkable”) Putin were to destroy the city of Kiev? That might collapse the whole Kiev-regime “state” of Ukraine overnight.

I doubt that Putin would do it, if only because Kiev was not only the first “Ukrainian” city, but the first Russian city (after Novgorod), the strategic centre of Kievan Rus: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27.

[the region in question in the 9th century]

Of course, large-scale destruction of cities is not new. We only have to think of the ancient cities which no longer exist: Troy, Carthage (destroyed two or, arguably, three times, and now replaced by modern Tunis) and many others. In the 20th century, the Americans and British inflicted huge damage on a number of cities during, mainly but not exclusively, the Second World War. The Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki remain the only ones destroyed or nearly-destroyed by atomic weapons.

Looking at the war-drums now beating in the Western msm, it all sounds very much like an organized campaign to foment war on a huge, trans-continental scale.

Had there been no Western (NATO, NWO) support for the Zelensky regime, meaning billions of dollars or pounds of actual money, as well as arms and ammunition, the war would now be over bar the shouting. Now, Ukraine faces a protracted and even more terrible war, and countries such as the UK face the possibility (which grows more likely daily) of nuclear annihilation.

This madness should stop, but will not, because powerful and influential forces want Russia to be, ideally, subjugated or, if that cannot or does not happen, wiped out.

Not that no blame attaches to Russia. As I blogged from the start, the performance of the Russian Army has been appalling. The Russian General Staff have shown themselves to be a pack of idiots, and the GRU has shown itself unfit for purpose. We know what Stalin would have done in such a circumstance.

Where are the once-dreaded Russian Spetsnaz forces?

The invasion of Ukraine could and should have been done very swiftly, relentlessly, and with minimal hurt, bloodshed and damage.

As Imperial Russia was once known, and then the Soviet Union (in the 1930s), “a colossus on legs of straw“, and many of its top military people, men of straw.

This situation, meaning the whole war, could change quickly. We could yet see Russian forces overwhelm the whole of Ukraine east of the Dnieper.

The Zelensky regime and its Ukrainian faux-state is just a shell, really. No economy to speak of, no legitimacy, its armed forces only surviving by reason of huge amounts of NATO and other donated weaponry.

The morale of the Kiev-regime forces does seem to be higher than that of the Russian forces in theatre, no doubt because the former see themselves as fighting for their native land, but morale is only determinative if the soldiers remain alive. If those statistics about Ukrainian losses are broadly accurate, they are staggering.

Did I read that Toby Young and his “Free Speech Union” spoke up when prominent Patriotic Alternative members Laura Towler, her husband Sam Melia, and Mark Collett had their personal bank accounts closed, not by court order but because the bank staff disapproved of their views (or were told to “disapprove”)?

No. Because Toby Young and the Free Speech Union never did speak up.

Neither did Young and his “Free Speech Union” say a word in defence of Alison Chabloz (imprisoned for singing songs and posting songs quite truthfully lampooning Jews and Jewish behaviour), Jez Turner (imprisoned for urging removal of Jews from the UK in a speech), nor indeed in defence of my rights.

The extreme Jew-Zionists have been at least trying to persecute me for about a decade now, though with little success: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and, most recently, https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

Still, half a glass is better than none, I suppose. At least Toby Young says the right sort of words on freedom of expression.

Hitchens, though, blames the instrument of repression (the modern technology) rather than the present socio-political “System” itself, and/or the Jew-Zionist lobby (which is behind most of the attacks on free speech in the UK).

In fact, many actual MPs have fabricated large parts of their own history. One of the most egregious cases, Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, was proven to have simply invented parts of his CV, and to have embellished most of the rest, yet he is still interviewed respectfully by msm talking heads; and that is before one even considers his nasty and backward policies as DWP Secretary of State 2010-2015.

I am just wondering why anyone would think that claiming to have worked for Jim Murphy would boost his career. Murphy was a student for 11 years (yet still left without having been awarded a degree), and as MP was an eager expenses cheat:

A 2010 commission chaired by Thomas Legg demanded Murphy repay £577.46 in expenses which he had overclaimed. He did not appeal, and repaid the money in full. Expenses documents made available showed he also claimed over £1 million between 2001 and 2012. In 2007/8 he claimed £3,900 for food, £2,284 for petty cash and £4,884 for a new bathroom. He claimed £249 for a TV set and a further £99 for a TV stand; £1762.50 of taxpayers money paid for Murphy’s website whilst further claims included Labour party adverts in the local press. He claimed almost £2000 of public cash to pay private accountants to handle his tax returns.[50]

In 2012, Murphy was among a group of 27 MPs named as benefiting from up to £20,000 per year expenses to rent accommodation in London, at the same time as letting out property they owned in the city. Although the practice did not break rules, it has been characterised as a “loophole” that allows politicians to profit from Commons allowances. He also designated his constituency home in Glasgow as his second home for which he claimed £780 a month in mortgage interest payments in 2007/2008.”

[Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy].

Jim Murphy was a major reason why Scottish Labour now scarcely exists. He is employed (or was, the last I heard of the bastard), as a gopher by Tony Blair.

[see also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy#Post-parliament_career].

Blair certainly had some odd people in his government. Apart from Murphy (a fervent pro-Zionist, but also a fanatical teetotaller, vegetarian —that’s OK by me— and Roman Catholic —ambivalent as to that—), there was also that Welsh lesbian (another expenses cheat, another pro-Zionist too) who admitted that she was too thick to do her job, and that extreme Roman Catholic (Opus Dei) woman, who wore a spiked belt under her clothing, like a nun in a Ken Russell film. And that’s just three of them.

Incidentally, I believe that the thick Welsh lesbian expenses cheat (and Jews’ puppet) was in Keir Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet until last year, while the Opus Dei woman, Ruth Kelly, now works for the Vatican, having also worked for HSBC for 5 years, 2010-2015. She left the Labour party in 2018 because she disliked Corbyn, and joined the “conservative” pressure group Policy Exchange.

More from the evil “trans” lobby

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11235021/Trans-activist-called-father-fascist-claims-protecting-friend.html

A trans activist who called a father a ‘fascist’ as he was holding his baby has apologised but claimed the abuse was an attempt to ‘protect’ her trans friends – amid calls for her to be sacked from her job as a Labour MP’s aide. 

Carly-May Kavanagh, a policy caseworker in the House of Commons for Brighton MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle, is shown in footage with another woman shouting at the unidentified man with the baby in his arms at a rally in Brighton.

…The friend tells the man: ‘Oh you’re raising a little fascist’. 

Miss Kavanagh then joins in and tells the unidentified man: ‘F****** fascist… you think that’s a good idea, do you, to raise a child who believes this filth […] you are disgusting.’ At one point she comes within inches of the baby, which remains calm.”

[Daily Mail]

It looks as if that pair deliberately targeted the man because he was carrying a baby, and so would be less likely to hit them (which they well deserved).

I wish that there existed an English “SA”, members of which would [further comment redacted in our “free” country…].

More seriously, eventually we are going to have to deal with all this nonsense and much more besides. It will not be pleasant, it will not be pretty, and it will be hard on the quiet heroes who will be tasked with doing it, but it will have to be done.

Incidentally, the lady tweeter’s comment means “real guys” or “real good fellows” (ha…not “Goodfellas“, I hope, thinking of the American film).

Of course, for “NATO” (NWO/ZOG) to have a nuclear war with Russia would be totally mad —for all sides and none— but, looking at 1914 and 1939, that does not mean that it will not happen.

Russia should make it clear to both decision-makers and the public in the West (if it can) that any nuclear war would mean Russia targeting not only military and naval bases etc, but also large cities.

The American public are all too used to cheering on their bombers and missiles, as they strike cities far from the USA, cities the inhabitants of which have no means of defence or retaliation, but I think that that same American public will not be quite so brave if they think that they themselves are soon going to be fighting for survival in a nuclear wasteland.

As for the UK, our country is too small for any doubt to exist: a nuclear war with Russia means that most of the country will be destroyed, meaning almost everything razed to the ground, and the areas made uninhabitable, whether air bases, ports, or cities are the target.

Sadly, the fate of my country is not in my hands but in those of near-cretins such as Liz Truss, Ben Wallace, and James Cleverly.

At last the Russian high command is starting to think truly tactically, meaning in this case obliquely.

It will be recalled that the Iraqi Army flooded large areas at one time, in the 1980s and later, both when fighting Iran and when fighting the “Allied forces” (USA, mainly).

I made that point a few days ago on the blog, citing the dictum of Clausewitz about how the ratio “moral” or morale vis a vis the “material” is 3:1.

We tend to forget that, though the southeastern part of Ukraine is a war zone, that does not mean that all areas suffer continuous fighting. Far from it. The Ukraine is about 3x the size of the UK, and nearly 5x the size of England. The southeastern parts known as the Donbass or Don Basin (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) are, together, about half the size of England.

Pound sliding, inflation stoking, and recession likely

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-62923994

Still think that closing down the economy for almost 2 years (because a virus was supposedly killing one out of every thousand people, mostly aged and/or with serious pre-existing health problems), and while doling out “free” money to individuals and companies via “furlough” payments, grants, “loans” etc, was a good policy? Think again.

A delusionary time, but what happens once the funeral of the late Queen has been held?

The death of the late Queen, and the consequent ritual arrangements and spectacles, is occupying the msm in the UK to an almost (?) unprecedented extent.

It may be that the Diana death hysteria of 1997, about which I have heard, and the Silver Jubilee of 1977, were similar; I cannot say, having been out of the UK when those two events occurred. In 1977, I was in Rhodesia, and in 1997 I was in Kazakhstan.

In fact, I only heard of the Diana incident 2-3 days after it happened, when I attended a regular Monday morning meeting at my office in Almaty, the then capital.

The British Embassy opened a book of condolence, and I was told by one of my Embassy contacts that, out of all the ~70 British residents (in the city) of which the Embassy was aware, I was the only one who had not signed (though not because I was hostile to Diana, but because of simple lack of interest).

My non-signing may have also been noted because, about 10 months previously, I had attended by invitation a royal reception at the Ambassador’s official Residence, where I had met and briefly chatted to Prince Charles, as he then was. Also, because I was at the Embassy quite often, at least a couple of times per week.

I have blogged in the past about how, on my return to London a few weeks later, friends told me about the collective psychosis (?) that had descended (on London at least), with pubs full of blubbing drinkers etc.

I am now thinking ahead to the day, or perhaps two or three days after the funeral of the late Queen (next Monday, 19 September 2022). What then?

We as a nation (insofar as Britain still is a nation) face huge economic problems, as well as ingrained social problems. The cloud of illusion all too obvious this week on TV, in the Press etc will blow away, and the country may come down to Earth with a very hard jolt.

The sentiment around the enormous queues going to see the late Queen’s coffin etc is somewhat illusory. The hundreds of thousands of people shuffling toward Westminster, or lining the Mall, are still only about 1% of the whole UK population. The vast majority, almost all in fact, seem to be English/British, i.e. white, and most (that I have seen in photos, on TV etc), are middle-aged or elderly.

This will all look very different in six months’ time.

Charles III

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/sep/13/oh-god-i-hate-this-king-charles-expresses-frustration-over-leaking-pen

King Charles has been seen airing his frustration during a ceremony for the second time in four days while in Northern Ireland.

The new monarch was shown signing a visitor’s book in front of cameras at Hillsborough Castle, near Belfast. He reacted after the pen he was using leaked on him.

“Oh god I hate this (pen)!” Charles said, standing up and handing the pen to his wife, Camilla, Queen Consort.

“Oh look, it’s going everywhere,” Camilla said as her husband wiped his fingers.

“I can’t bear this bloody thing … every stinking time,” Charles said as he walked away.

When completing the documents on Tuesday he also used the wrong date, before checking with an aide who told him it was 13 September not 12 September.

At the accession council on Saturday, an irritated Charles had signalled for aides to move a pen holder and pens that had got in his way as he signed documents.

[The Guardian].

Peevish. Self-absorbed. Trivial.

The warning markers are all there.

I think that the Monarchy, in a living sense, ended with the death of the late Queen.

Incidentally, Charles has given orders to sack most of his loyal staff at Clarence House [https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/sep/13/king-charles-staff-given-redundancy-notice-during-church-service-for-queen].

Is that a sign of what a “King Charles III” monarchy will be like? Much public virtue-signalling but no real concern for people?

Rather like most present System politicians, clergy and msm scribblers, not to mention Twitter-twits.

Actually, looking at him, I wonder how long Charles will be there.

The Guardian

The Guardian also speaks up for some free speech [https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/sep/13/britain-free-speech-heckles-prince-andrew], but I have, in the past decade, seen nothing along those lines to defend the rights of freedom of expression of someone (me) tweeting completely correct and accurate tweets about the behaviour of, inter alia, some government ministers, and some Jews, and some non-whites in our country: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

Neither have I seen The Guardian defending those who speak out in speeches against the Jew-Zionist lobby, people such as Jez Turner (Jeremy Bedford-Turner): see https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/may/14/ex-soldier-guilty-of-racial-hatred-after-cps-initially-declined-to-prosecute; and https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-44116895.

I have likewise seen no Guardian defence of people such as singer-songwriter and satirist Alison Chabloz (repeatedly targeted, and even imprisoned, for poking fun at some Jewish behaviour, in the manner or style of Charles Dickens: see https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10732361/Anti-Semitic-blogger-Alison-Chabloz-58-compared-Auschwitz-theme-park-jailed.html).

Military situation in Ukraine

The Daily Mail has offered analysis of the Ukraine situation not very favourable to the Russian side: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-11206285/Vladimir-Putin-no-good-options-react-Ukraine-says-military-expert-JUSTIN-BRONK.html.

Written by an analyst from the Royal United Services Institute: academic background at Westminster School, the University of York (History), and the LSE (International Relations). No direct military experience. Still, worth reading:

In less than a week, more than 3,000 square kilometres of Ukrainian territory had been liberated, massive stockpiles of ammunition, weapons and armoured vehicles captured for use by Ukrainian forces, and the entire Russian position in North-Eastern Ukraine completely destabilised. 

Russian forces have not suffered such a serious and rapid military defeat on the battlefield since the Second World War.

Worse still for Putin is that fact that he has no good options for how to react now. 

The majority of his potentially mobile and elite units in Ukraine are still concentrated in Kherson to the south, and are facing a serious and ongoing Ukrainian counter-offensive operation that cannot be ignored. 

Furthermore, by signalling for so long that Kherson was target for liberation, Ukraine has baited Russia into accepting an attritional battle in a very militarily disadvantageous position. 

The region of Kherson Oblast that Russia is trying to hold onto is on the Western bank of the wide Dnipro river.

The US-supplied long range HIMARS rocket artillery system has allowed Ukraine to effectively destroy the only two crossing points – the Antonovsky Bridge and the bridge at Nova Kahkovka – and regularly destroy the temporary pontoon bridges and ferry crossings that the Russian Army has tried to build instead. 

As such, the large concentration of Russian forces defending Kherson are dependent on highly disrupted and bottlenecked supply lines, meaning that they are rapidly running low on medical supplies, food and above all ammunition.

This is an attritional battle that favours Ukraine due to the territory involved but for Putin, Kherson has to be defended politically due to its status as the one major Ukrainian city taken roughly intact during this invasion.

Now with his northern flank collapsing, Putin cannot easily withdraw elite units from Kherson, since it would risk a second major rout in the face of the ongoing Ukrainian counter-offensive operations there. 

Even if he tries to withdraw some forces, the blown up bridges and frequently-struck temporary crossing points over the Dnipro mean it will be difficult to transfer heavy equipment and vehicles out of Kherson. 

If his forces stay put in the south, then the majority of Russia’s usable combat power will be trapped with their backs to the river and steadily ground down by a Ukrainian force that has much better supply lines, more troops and so can sustain an attritional artillery duel for longer. 

However, if the Kherson front were to collapse, it would be such a political and military disaster coming soon after the stunning defeat in Kharkiv that Russian military morale might totally disintegrate, or Putin might even find himself threatened by discontented factions within the Russian power structure at home.

[Daily Mail]

Bronk? Odd name. I wonder what are its origins.

Here is the Daily Mail map:

While “3,000 square kilometres” sounds vast, and is in fact about twice the area of Greater London, it is only 1% of the land area of Ukraine, and about 5% or so of the area controlled until recently by Russian forces.

Until now, Russian attacks on a large scale have only affected areas east of the Dnieper, areas in the Sea of Azov and Back Sea coastal belt, and —at the start of the invasion— areas around Kiev.

Until very recently, Russia has not much attacked the strategic civilian infrastructure of most of the Western part of Ukraine, or even Kiev— electrical supply, water supply, gas supply, railways, airports, major roads etc.

It may be that Putin is considering doing just that, possibly even using tactical nuclear weapons, in order to degrade the surviving economy and lifestyle of the Ukrainian population living hundreds of miles away from the battlefields of Eastern Ukraine and the South.

On a related point, there are, even now, a few cranks, mostly aged persons, who have not woken up to the fact that the facemask nonsense is yesterday’s news (yesterday’s State-sponsored panic campaign). I was in Waitrose earlier today, and saw two people still wearing their facemask muzzles: some old bird buying a load of medicines, filthy-looking “disposable” mask half-worn; the other a loony-looking old fellow wearing his muzzle, driving out of the car park in his own car (in which he was the only occupant!).

I have also seen a few hysterical Jews on Twitter waiting to be told by “authority” that the “panicdemic” is over before they ditch the muzzles. Complete idiots.

It will be hard (I think, I hope) for the transnational conspiracy to resurrect “Covid” as a way of corralling the masses again. Too many people in the UK and across the world have woken up to it all.

I wonder what the next ploy will be. The conspiracy has already tried “monkeypox”, only for even the tame msm scribblers to discover that it affects mainly men who do anal sex, so that failed to fly with the public as a whole.

Perhaps some new and “unexpected” “variant” or whatever will “suddenly appear”, frightening the public again, but the story will have to be pretty alarming to get the bulk of the people on board again.

In the meantime, other “campaigns” have been launched, notably the “I stand with Ukraine” rubbish.

In case any readers are wondering why I now rarely repost material from Nick Griffin, the reason is because I was expelled from Twitter in 2018, at the instigation of a pack of Jews. As a result (and because I have no “sock accounts”, and because Twitter has started even more-reressive censorship), I cannot even read most of Griffin’s tweets because they are “restricted by age” etc.

Twitter has done everything possible to gag Griffin short of actually expelling him. It is made difficult to search for his tweets, and even then there is a pathetic warning notice in place.

As I predicted, Elon Musk realized that Twitter is partly, perhaps largely, a scam, and not a genuine and profitable enterprise. Musk has withdrawn and will not be buying into it.

Well, I once again trounced political journalist John Rentoul this week. 6/10 as against his 1/10 or, as he prefers, one-and-three-quarters out of ten. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 7, 9, and 10.

I “really”, in the back of my mind, knew no. 10, and —had I thought about it— might have got no.7 too. Still, there it is. I am OK with 6/10 this week.

It does cross my mind as to why the public should pay heed to John Rentoul when he cannot do better than he usually does in these weekly quizzes. I suppose that he specializes in politics, but can you really do that without a good general knowledge base?

3 September 1939

As we know, Britain and France gave Poland a worthless guarantee, so that when Germany invaded Poland on 1 September 1939, the two guarantors declared war on the Reich (on 3 September 1939), despite being entirely unable to take offensive action of any sort.

Britain and France turned a blind eye to the simultaneous Soviet invasion of Poland from the East.

The following 8-9 months was known in the UK as the Phoney War or Bore War (the first fatal casualty on the British side occurred over three months after the declaration of war), and on the German side as Sitzkrieg (“Sitting War”).

If only an honourable armistice could have been made between Germany and Britain either in 1939 or 1940, thus saving at least Western and Central Europe from several years of death, misery and destruction.

The same could be said of the situation in late 1914.

The failure of diplomacy and political leadership in 1939-40 resulted not only in the following years of war, but in what happened in the decades after 1945— population displacement, environmental degradation, premature decolonization, wars and civil wars (eg in Africa), not to mention Eastern, and part of Central, Europe crushed under Soviet rule for half a century.

Now we once more stand before such a situation: a non-state or “failed state”, Ukraine, being supported —pointlessly— from the rear by Western states —particularly USA and UK— , without thought to what might happen if Russia tires of it all and launches a terrifying and world-changing strategic nuclear attack on the West. It could happen. Europe would then have to start over, and rebuild from a very low point.

The best any British person can hope for is that the migrant-invaders will be just useless, and a deadweight millstone round the necks of the British people. That is the best hope. Forget fantasies of how any of them will be some great gift to us, or that they will be brain surgeons, scientists etc. If they are not violent criminals or terrorists, be grateful. I suppose. Or get rid of them.

Britain, though flawed and broken, was still recognizable until 1997, or maybe 2005. After that, it morphed into an alien dystopia.

If that silly woman makes it beyond the end of the year, I shall be surprised, and if she is still PM in April 2023, I shall be astonished.

The political situation at present is that, after three years of shambolic “leadership” by part-Jew/Levantine “Boris”, the Conservative Party is imploding before our eyes. In our rigged binary First Past the Post system, that automatically favours the otherwise despised fake Opposition, Labour.

The absurd LibDems will now probably survive solely because there are millions of people who will never vote Labour but who are now completely disenchanted with the Conservative Party. The LibDems are an easy option for those semi-floating voters, not least because the LibDems threw away all principle in 2010 to form the Con Coalition.

Despite what the opinion polls are now saying, I cannot see Labour forming a majority government.

I was interested to see that Labour may stand down candidates in many seats where Labour usually comes third or fourth. A tactic to help the LibDems.. A tacit admission that both Labour and Con are no longer “national” parties in the old sense. They are both persona non grata in different parts of (even) England and Wales, let alone Scotland.

The DDR (East Germany). As I have blogged previously, a strange state, a kind of facade of a state rather than a real one, as it seemed to me in a couple of summer days in 1988. Yet that state, which vanished in a puff of smoke only a year or so later, was more substantial in some ways than we in the UK usually thought.

I suppose that, growing up in the Cold War era of the 1960s and 1970s, one tended to think of East Germany as being mainly the East Berlin of The Spy Who Came In From The Cold or Funeral in Berlin.

East Berlin, and the Wall, tended to be thought of as looming hugely, not only over Berlin itself, but also over the hard-to-visualize rest of the DDR.

In fact, the DDR, though not huge, and small compared to West Germany, was itself not a very small country; almost half the size of the UK, and about 90% of the size of England.

The DDR was too small a state to engage in autarky. It had no choice but to ride alongside the Soviet Union (and the rest of COMECON). The new Germany is different. more than one and a half times the size of the UK (about 3x the size of England).

What is holding back Germany, psychologically, is the legacy of 1945, the huge destruction and hurt caused by complete military defeat.

The President of Latvia, Levits, a half-Jew, is obviously trying to expand the war. Strange, when Latvia would be one of the first countries to be flattened by any major new or expanded war in the region.

One can see what is quite likely to happen: the military aid to the Kiev regime will be increased, with better and newer weapons, ammunition and training. The Ukrainian/Kiev regime side will then advance, and will attack Crimea and mainland Russian borderlands.

At that point, Russia may respond with a wave of tactical nuclear weapons. From then on, Europe and the Western world would be in uncharted waters.

So the Jew Zelensky has an Italian villa, as well as a USD $40 Million one in Florida? He has certainly not wasted his few years as President of the Ukrainian fake state (or failed state).

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/fuming-brit-installs-anti-tank-27844211.

Time was, when the word “traveller” referred to such as Wilfred Thesiger [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilfred_Thesiger], the fictional characters in The Sheltering Sky [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sheltering_Sky_(film)],

or at least more modest “travellers”, whether backpack drifters or package tourists. Now, in the UK, this has changed.

The word “travellers” has now been hijacked to describe those who were formerly (if largely inaccurately) known as “Gypsies” (the “real” Gypsies being of Indian origin and, also inaccurately, thought in the Europe of the 16th Century to be “Egyptians”; the Parliament of Henry VIII passed the Egyptians Act 1530 with the idea of expelling them from England on pain of imprisonment and forfeiture: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptians_Act_1530).

The socio-ethnic group now often referred to as “travellers” are fundamentally the same as the Irish “tinkers”, a group which may have diverged from the general Irish population as early as the 17th Century, and possibly consequent upon the ravaging of Ireland by Cromwell: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Travellers.

Most of the descendants of those “travellers” are certainly not welcome at the Travellers [Club: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Travellers_Club]

[The Library, Travellers Club, London]

While many will claim that not all of the Irish tinker/travellers are a social nuisance, those that are a nuisance are a huge nuisance.

The present UK Government has passed some legislation to try to protect English people and the English countryside from the illegal squatting, illegal construction, litter, vandalism and crime which often accompanies the caravans of the “travellers”, I doubt whether the measures recently put in place are anything like strong enough. Also, the police, now so brainwashed by “anti-racist” propaganda, are often seen to be ineffective in dealing with the problem.

This is an ingrained and inter-generational social problem, and will require a determined effort if a lasting solution is to be put in place.

Proportional representation

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11152921/Tories-fear-Labour-axing-past-post-form-coalition-chaos-could.html

The Tories could be locked out of power for a generation under controversial ‘coalition of chaos’ plans expected to be backed by Labour this autumn.

Conservative election planners privately raised fears that Sir Keir Starmer‘s party will next month finally approve plans to scrap Britain’s historic first-past-the-post (FPTP) voting system and replace it with ‘coalition-friendly’ proportional representation (PR).”

The Daily Mail has quite a cheek talking about “chaos” after the past 12 years of shambolic misgovernment, and especially the past 3 years.

So maybe there is one (possible) Labour Party policy that I might actually like…

Much of “British” policy re. Ukraine is being driven by the Jew-Zionist lobby in Parliament and the msm. The present UK Ambassador in Kiev is a scruffy Jewish woman.

That Bilsland person, a solicitor since 2002, is apparently a CPS prosecutor, as well as someone involved in Army cadet training . Seems both silly and intemperate (and could not get Hitchens’ name spelled right).

I was actually disbarred for having tweeted a mere 5 completely true and accurate tweets about UK politics and society, including the assertion(s) that Michael Gove was a pro-Jew, pro-Israel expenses cheat. In 2016 (when I was disbarred, complaint having been laid —by a pack of Jews calling themselves “UK Lawyers for Israel”— in 2014), it was not publicly known that Gove is also a drunk and a cocaine abuser.

As noted before about the pseudo-green anti-oil “activists”, “Insulate Britain”, “Extinction Rebellion” etc, they rely on the still mainly decent and (often all-too) tolerant nature of British people, i.e. that they, the “activists” (and particularly the older women vandals, like the one shown in the clip), will not be hit in the face or pushed to the ground and stamped upon. In the colloquial, vandals such as those nuisances are “taking the p***” and should be dealt with.

Where are the police? Where are they?

This is not just “criminal damage”, bad enough though that is; this is conspiracy.

The Royal Cuck and the Royal Mulatta— gifts that keep on giving…

Were “the Harry formerly known as Prince” not blessed with the absurd and anachronistic title, no-one would be at all interested in the banal doings of a rather unintelligent and surely neurotic “young” man (38 in a couple of weeks) and/or those of his “mixed-race”, social-climbing, and slightly older (41 years) wife.

Kennedy on Hitler’s legacy

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-39371715

Kennedy, then 28, predicted [in 1945] “Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived”.

He had in him the stuff of which legends are made,” he continued.

Kennedy wrote the entry in the summer of 1945 after touring the German dictator’s Bavarian mountain retreat.

The Kennedy assassination conundrum has never been fully resolved, and various possible culprits beyond Lee Harvey Oswald have been identified, among them the Mafia, the CIA, the KGB, MOSSAD, the American “Deep State” connected with Bohemian Grove, even Texans opposed to John Connally (who was injured in the attack).

Kennedy was unusual: a Roman Catholic and somewhat of an outsider in the US power milieu. It may be that he would have wrested control away from the entrenched power elites in the USA had he lived longer.

Red Sparrow

Saw a spy film called Red Sparrow. I think that “Swallow” may have been changed to “Sparrow” because of the unfortunate double-meaning in English: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexpionage#Soviet_and_Russian.

The film was well-made, and featured a number of famous actors and actresses. Locations in Moscow (maybe), London, Budapest (particularly) and elsewhere.

The plot was a little implausible in parts, as is typical of such films, and the ending even less plausible. Still, not bad. Entertaining, though I easily guessed most of what was going to happen.

[Afterthought, next day: the term “swallows” for KGB sex spies may have come from the similarity of words —in Russian– between “swallow” (bird), which is “lastochka” (ласточка) and “to caress” which is “laskat” (ласкать). I think that I may have cracked it; “give that man a cee-gar”…].

Well, now the system is in place, the illegitimate “laws” and “regulations” are there to be wheeled out again as required, and I have no doubt that State psychologists will have been analyzing the reaction of the public, so that an even more controlled regime can be put in place during the next fake “emergency” (maybe not a “medical” one).

Saturday quiz

Well, this week I again beat political journalist John Rentoul, but only just, scoring 6/10 to his 5/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 5, 6, and 7. Amazing that Rentoul apparently did not know where Copacabana is.

The saga of the Royal Mulatta and the Royal Cuck continues

There are rumours that the cover of Harry’s upcoming tell-all memoir about his horrid life as a royal features a picture not just of him, as you’d expect, but Megs, too. The word emasculated comes to mind.

He has become a walk-on part in The Me-Me-Meghan Show, eclipsed by his wife’s ambition.

I never thought I’d say this, but I feel sorry for Harry.

[Amanda Platell, in the Daily Mail: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-11150647/PLATELLS-PEOPLE-believe-Im-saying-feel-sorry-Harry.html].

I do not take more than a passing interest in the activities of the Meghan and Harry show, but it strikes me that the closest facsimile of their relationship might be that of absurd TV cook Fanny Cradock and her long-suffering husband, Johnnie, whom the ghastly woman treated like a particularly abused servant; almost a serf, in fact.

I recall Fanny Cradock on TV when I was a small child, in the early 1960s, and the crazed creature was on British TV occasionally until the mid 1980s.

Fanny and Johnnie Cradock began writing a column under the pen name of “Bon Viveur”[5] which appeared in The Daily Telegraph from 1950 to 1955. This sparked a theatre career, with the pair turning theatres into restaurants. Cradock would cook vast dishes that were served to the audience. They became known for their roast turkey, complete with stuffed head, tail feathers and wings. Complete with French accents, their act was one of a drunken hen-pecked husband and a domineering wife. At this time, they were known as Major and Mrs Cradock.”

“[Johnnie] is best remembered as being the long-suffering stooge for his wife in their popular British cooking programmes which were shown from the 1950s to the 1970s. Wearing a traditional blazer and sporting a monocle, he would remain around the back of Fanny’s studio sets awaiting her imperious commands which, when they came, often resulted in his being berated for being too slow.”

[Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fanny_Cradock; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Cradock].

The Royal Mulatta has something else in common with Fanny Cradock— an “inventive” memory in recalling her own background and history.

Sometimes, “a thought out of season” comes to me, the dystopian idea that the present decline of Western society will be ended not with debates or literary disagreements (or rigged elections) but with some kind of multifaceted “Holy War”…

Nordic noirs (literally)

Yesterday, I watched the first episode of a Swedish detective series. Not sure whether I shall bother to watch the rest, mainly because I found it all rather contrived. What struck me, though, was the number of blacks and browns shown. Is that how Sweden really is now, or have the media people exaggerated the proportion (as they have in almost everything shown about the UK)?

On that same theme, the show had a number of (“British”) ad breaks, each with quite a few ads. Every single ad had blacks or half-castes (“mixed-race” persons, if you like) in it. This is pure propaganda. I know that I have been blogging about this evil campaign for a few years now

but we must never allow it to become normalized, certainly not without at least having dissenting voices heard.

As we know, “the pen is mightier than the sword“, but that is precisely why the enemies of freedom of expression try to “cancel” people, and to take away their right to speak or write.

In my case, though “antifa” idiots would probably like to “cancel” even my blog, the cabals who have made repeated and serious efforts to take me down have all in fact been those composed of Jew-Zionists: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

I had my Twitter account removed in 2018 by reason of the manipulations of the same Jew-Zionists, really just a quite small handful of individuals plotting together, and presenting themselves as if a large and/or “important” organization (the so-called “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism”, or “CAA”, mainly).

The enemies of civilization are of various kinds. May they all end the same way.

Tweets seen

I was tweeting in the same vein (before the Jewish lobby had my Twitter account taken away in 2018) for about 7 years, amid the economic illiteracies of the fake (and disastrous) “austerity” policies promoted by the part-Jews George Osborne and David Cameron-Levita, and supported by the part-Japanese sadist Iain Dunce Duncan Smith. I have, also, been blogging along similar lines since late 2016.

The well-known book The Spirit Level is still worth reading. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spirit_Level_(book).

If you transfer money to people on low incomes, they spend it (and almost have to spend it), thus stimulating the economy. If you do the same to people on moderate incomes, they will both spend some and invest some, but if you give money to very wealthy people who already have more than enough to satisfy both needs and wants, they will mostly park that money in hedging assets such as real property (and thus drive up the current value of such assets without actually helping the economy).

In essence, that is why it is better to have at least moderate redistribution of wealth.

Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak both seem to believe in some pathetic “trickle-down” economic theory of the 1980s “Reaganomics” kind. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reaganomics, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supply-side_economics, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trickle-down_economics.

So “they voted for Boris“? How truly stupid are those voters?

Liz Truss will say anything, just to win the contest and/or get through the next day, or the next week, just as Boris-idiot does.

Never a word in the msm or on these online comment sites about how a foreigner should never be Prime Minister of this country, even if one of his passports is “British”.

Why? Because the Jew-Zionist element always tries to destroy freedom of expression, particularly for non-Jews. Wake up.

Jesus H. Christ!

Still, if we had any real social-national party or movement, an economic shock like that might be a gamechanger politically, just as the 1929 Wall Street Crash and the consequent/subsequent Great Depression was for Hitler and the NSDAP.

The NHS 111 service is near-to-useless.

I favour a free-at-point-of-use NHS service, but only for British people, not for “health tourists” and all manner of riff-raff. How such a service can be funded is an open question. How such a service can be staffed is another question. The aim should be for the UK to train its own doctors and nurses, for one thing, and they should be forced to work in the NHS, and not allowed to emigrate to the white Commonwealth or elsewhere, for several years (in the case of doctors, perhaps 10 years).

Back in the 1970s, even 1980s, despite many Press stories about deficiencies, the NHS did work, most of the time. Now, mass immigration and NHS maladministration has ruined it.

Management, or rather mismanagement, is one of the really major problems with the NHS.

I see that the propaganda campaign is being readied to pretend to the public that they, the public, are to blame for the NHS not working properly, because they, the public, are actually requesting the services that the NHS is supposed to provide.

This winter, the NHS will not easily be able to blame the 2020-2022 “Covid” “panicdemic” for its inability to run itself properly, and it has been 3 or 4 years since other illnesses or conditions (eg “flu”) were blamed (almost every winter for many years).

If and when the UK has a real government, it must tackle the healthcare mess and the associated adult social care mess as a priority.

One idea might be to use a “dedicated” or “ring-fenced” tax only for the NHS. “National Insurance”, which is merely another tax on top of income tax, is paid into general government funds. If it, or a large part of it, were only usable for health services, the taxpayers would accept it far more readily, especially under a suitable name such as the unoriginal but easily-understood “Health Services Tax”. It is claimed that that would be less efficient; I think not.

Another point: blaming the consumer, or worker, or citizen, now seems to be “a thing” in the UK.

NHS not working right? It’s because Joe Public actually has a medical problem and wants it dealt with. Water shortage? It’s the fault of the public, because they actually want to have a bath or shower, and to water their plants. People cannot live on peanuts? It’s their fault, for being unable to “budget”, or cook, or enjoy “fasting” (going without food— yes, the Daily Telegraph suggested even that recently).

The boss of RAF recruitment has said she is ‘unashamed’ of the force’s diversity targets, amid claims that it has effectively paused its recruitment of white men.”

[Daily Mail]

The RAF has become largely a pathetic joke. Incidentally, this is the “RAF senior officer” in question: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria_Byford. A dentist by training…

Another cretinous “Conservative” MP

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11123955/Tory-MP-says-cooking-lessons-help-quitting-smoking-help-cost-living-crisis.html

“A lot of people in the more depressed parts of my constituency often sadly smoke and cigarettes are £12 a packet.

And people find it difficult to stop smoking. 

So there are other ways we can help people – through smoking cessation, helping people budget and also… giving people the skills to make simple, nutritious meals from basic ingredients.

Because if you are going to live on takeaways that is a very expensive way of feeding your family.‘”

[Robert Goodwill MP, quoted in the Daily Mail].

This is Robert Goodwill: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Goodwill. A proven expenses overclaimer, who also “employs” his wife via his MP expenses (she gets £30,000 a year for a part-time job, assuming that she does anything at all), he is a farmer of some kind, meaning that he inherited land and has been getting farming subsidies for that (for decades)..

The sort of nonsense that the ironically misnamed Goodwill is spouting (i.e. that the poor are only unable to live decently because they smoke, drink, buy takeaway food or the wrong kind of food, or otherwise waste money) has been around for a long time. It predates even Victorian ideology, and Orwell examined it in one or two of his 1930s essays.

Having said that, there is a grain of truth in that narrative about smoking, drinking, being unskilled in cooking etc, but —as Orwell noted— people living in poor circumstances want a little of what we might call comfort purchases .

The fact is that the cost of living has started to get out of control, a result of years of inflationary policies, some of which stem from the giveaways of Sunak during the “panicdemic”. Pay has not kept pace, State benefits even less so.

“Conservative” political drones and the corrupt msm are now starting to blame the poor (again) for their poverty, and suggesting everything from fasting to never heating homes to cooking classes, in fact everything except paying more to both workers and benefit recipients (and many people are both).

In fact, Goodwill is so dim that, despite having made it to junior minister several times, he has always been sacked before very long.

The fact is that the MPs we have now are mostly a very poor lot, a very decadent lot, a very stupid lot, and they have no interest in being better informed. They only understand one thing, but in our “free country” (as it used to be called) I am “not allowed” to mention it, or if I do, the poundland KGB (toytown police) will probably be at my door (again).

YOUTH SUPPORT FOR A REACTIONARY RIGHT PARTY
In order to test young people’s support for a
new radical or reactionary right political party,
we polled the same question in a specific poll
of 1,010 18-24-year-olds living in Britain between
15 and 19 April 2022 via Focaldata, weighted to
be representative of the national 18-24 year old
population.
Consistent with our findings of 18-24s from the
full nationally representative poll (37% supported),
35% of 18-24 year olds said they would be likely
to support a new party that says it wants to push
back against ‘woke’ culture, reduce Government
spending, reduce taxation, rule out any future
Covid lockdowns, privatise the BBC and Channel
4, challenge the ‘islamisation of the UK’ and
support unrestricted freedom of speech.
Support was much higher among young men
(43%) than young women (28%), and out of step
with national trends, graduates were more likely
to voice support for such a party (39%) than those
without a degree (32%)
.
We also asked those who said they would support
such a party (n=358) whether they would continue
to support such a party if critics accused this new
party of being far right, a characterisation the new
party strongly denied. Worryingly, an association
with the far right did not have an impact among
the majority of young supporters – as 46% said
they would continue to support this party
, 31%
said they would not now support the party, and
23% remained undecided.
Unlike among the general population, where
violence and extreme views of populist and
radical right parties can be disrupted by exposing
associations with violence and extremism,
support for reactionary politics among young
people is unlikely to be easily unsettled by
allegations of being far-right
.”

From a report (in my view, very biased in its premises anyway) by or for the mainly Jewish “Hope not Hate” crowd.

Who says that a new party would do all of these? “Push
back against ‘woke’ culture, reduce Government
spending, reduce taxation, rule out any future
Covid lockdowns, privatise the BBC and Channel
4, challenge the ‘islamisation of the UK’ and
support unrestricted freedom of speech.

Social nationalism would not “reduce Government spending“, nor necessarily reduce taxation. As for “unrestricted freedom of speech“, that is a naive and stupidly uninformed way of putting it. Direct personal threats should be and always have been unlawful in the UK, certainly in modern history.

The issue is free speech on social, political, religious and historical topics. One should be able to speak freely about Jews, blacks etc, and about Judaism, Islam, Christianity etc, inter alia, including the now-ludicrous “holocaust” farrago.

In any case, a real social national party would do a great deal more than the above quotation says. As was said nearly a century ago, “neither Revolution nor Reaction“.

As to this so-called “Hope not Hate” crowd, I wonder where the money comes from to fund this self-describing “anti-hate” yet entirely hateful organization with its full-time paid staff? A Swedish billionaire heiress and her Jewish husband were apparently donating huge amounts, and may still be. I do not know. How much, if any, comes from Israeli sources? I do not know.

…and now we are all going to pay the price for the majority who went along with the “panicdemic” without thinking— with the shutdown lockdowns, the facemask nonsense, the “social distancing” rubbish, the “furlough” payments, the business “loans” to fraudsters and others, the £38 BILLION thrown away on useless “test and trace”, the vast amounts wasted on “PPE” in hospitals, the never-used “Nightingale” fake “hospitals” etc etc etc…

After the “gas chambers” part of the WW2 “holocaust” narrative, the bulk of the “Covid” narrative, and within that the “vaccination” scam, must be the biggest hoax ever.

Late thoughts

I was watching a powerful film apparently based loosely on actual events: K-19: the Widowmaker [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-19:_The_Widowmaker]. That led me to some troubled thoughts.

I grow increasingly pessimistic about the international situation.

The only chance that the Kiev regime of the Jew Zelensky has to survive in power there is to continue to get more (and better) arms from the NATO bloc. That, and to provoke a wider conflict.

We see that, in the past 24 hours, a series of Ukrainian (?) attacks on Crimea (where 90%+ of the population is Russian) and on Russian territory itself.

The Russian advance has slowed to a crawl.

Putin is not going to withdraw from either Crimea or the Donbass, yet he is not in a position to deal the Kiev a knockout blow conventionally, as things stand.

Tactical nuclear weapons offer the Russian side a potential edge. The Ukrainians have none. A very horrific possibility, because it might mean large urban areas being destroyed, with all the pain and hurt that would entail. In such a scenario, NATO might take the opportunity to assist the Kiev side directly.

Who was “to blame” for WW2? To say “Germany”, is trite and simplistic. What about WW1?

If WW3 starts out of this Ukraine situation, it might be that Russia’s finger will be on the trigger first, but that, again, is a simplistic way of looking at a complex situation.

Can it really be that we are looking at the possibility that much of civilized Europe will be destroyed for really nothing, that “nothing” being because the NWO cabals want both to encroach upon Russia, and also to support the corrupt, shambolic, failed “state” of Ukraine? Horrifying.
