https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/b/marc-wadsworth-wins-libel-case-against-jewish-chronicle

Once again, the Jewish Chronicle propaganda newspaper has to pay out for having defamed someone.

Occasionally, I see tweets by all sorts of mentally-disordered persons about me, including how I allegedly “defame” this or that Jew, System MP, msm drone, and/or other incompetent. Sometimes such tweets urge others to sue me. In a few instances, even the said Jews, mental cases and/or incompetents threaten to sue me. Those tweets make me smile, and sometimes laugh.

When I was a practising barrister (until 2008), I was not very active in the fields of libel and slander, but was asked to advise on such issues from time to time. The only matter that got as far as trial (in the High Court) was some years before I was Called to the Bar.

In the English-language version of his memoirs The Oak and the Calf [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Oak_and_the_Calf], the famous Russian writer and historian of the GULAG system, Alexander Solzhenitsyn [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Solzhenitsyn], had implied that a Romanian exile called Flegon [https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/1430648/Alec-Flegon.html] was controlled by the KGB. I was asked, informally, to advise on the matter, which was going to trial imminently, with Flegon acting as his own advocate.

Not permitted, as a mere (belated) student, to speak, I advised during the two-week trial via notes passed to Flegon by his “assistant”, a dark and nervous Jewish girl. I myself had to be absent much of the time, sometimes because I had to attend tutorials at the Inns of Court School of Law at Gray’s Inn, not too far from the Royal Courts of Justice.

On one occasion, I sent a note to Flegon, who was addressing (and wasting the time of) the judge. I then left the court. Apparently, the judge then asked to see my note! Fortunately, the judge liked what he had read and told Flegon that he would be well-advised “to listen to what your adviser has written to you“!

Flegon was awarded (by a civil jury) £10,000 damages, plus costs. My first “case”, and my first “judicial commendation”!

Notes: I have just seen this: https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.13173/wienslavjahr.8.2020.0240, by one Alexander L. Jacobson of Princeton, New Jersey, I presume from the University. Could not even get the nationality of Flegon right, describing him as “Russian”! See also: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A4%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%B3%D0%BE%D0%BD,_%D0%90%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BA.

Reverting to me as potential fantasy defamation defendant, I fear that, in the American phrase, potential claimants have a “sad row to hoe” and a steep hill to climb.

For one thing, while it is possible to launch a defamation action on a no-win-no-fee basis, that really only works where the case is both more than arguable, and also where the defendant has assets sufficient to satisfy at least the claimant’s costs, as well as any damages.

In my case, I admit that my assets are few. That impecuniosity is however a suit of armour for me. I am, in practical terms, “unsueable”.

In theory, a defamation action could be launched against me, with the aim of getting an injunction to restrain me from defaming XYZ person or persons. However, I would fight very very hard. I know the law pretty well (even now, though I admit that I am rather rusty), and would have no compunction about using every avenue open to me, including appeals.

Beyond that, most of that which idiots describe as my “libel” of others is not “libel” at all (eg because in law “mere insult”), or even where prima facie “libellous” is true and justifiable, or is published as justifiable opinion, or is published otherwise lawfully and justifiably.

I wish that tweeters would learn before they tweet, not only about law but in general.

Still, if anyone wants to lose a couple of hundred thousand trying to pursue me, that is their business…they would lose out even if (which I doubt) they were to meet with success in court.

So far, and after many years, no-one has even tried, and only one or two have even threatened (unconvincingly, at that).

Laurence Fox is, in his own person and in his political flounderings, a socio-political morality tale. Virtually lynched for making a few unexceptional and unexceptionable points around free speech, he soon became a minor aspect of “controlled opposition” to the System.

Fox is unwilling to stand up for real free speech, and not once has the bastard ever said a word supporting or defending the real champions of freedom of expression in this country, those who have suffered greatly for standing up for Europe’s future: Jez Turner, Alison Chabloz, and (if I myself say so) me (among others).

No word of criticism of the Jew-Zionist element has crossed the lips of Fox, yet that alien element is not only behind much of the assault on free speech, but also behind much of the present migration-invasion.

Fox has even set up his own joke political party, which decided not to stand a candidate at Batley and Spen recently, because it might harm the Conservative Party vote!

Now this individual begs to be let back in to the System msm, and so pledges fealty to the contemporary decadence…

Fox, get lost.

Egregious political chancer George Galloway saying that he is not “antisemitic” because, inter alia, when he was working undercover as a pro-ANC agent in South Africa in the 1980s, Jews were those who provided him with cars, overnight accommodation (and cash?) etc.

At that time, Galloway was General Secretary of War on Want, a supposed charity partly funded (then, though not now, I think) by the British taxpayer. It gets EU monies as well.

Galloway got into trouble over his expenses. He was cleared of actually stealing (embezzling), apparently, but all the same had to repay nearly £2,000 (worth maybe £10,000-£20,000 now). He never sued over allegations in the Daily Mirror that he had been enjoying “a life of luxury” at the expense of War on Want’s donors: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Galloway#War_on_Want.

The point Nick Griffin is making, and justly so, is that Jews are always behind any attacks on white Northern European culture and politics. There they were in South Africa, the Jews, making money, living in large numbers in the most expensive parts of Cape Town and Johannesburg (to the extent that white people in Africa used to call “Jo’burg”, “Jewburg“!), yet at the same time undermining the whole foundation of that society.

Now look at the UK, France, Germany, Scandinavia, USA, Canada, Australia etc…

As for Galloway, how pathetic is it that he, and many like him who are self-describing “Left” or “socialist” types, oppose Jewish hegemony and supremacism in Palestine, yet pay lip-service to Jews and the Jewish “community” in the UK, France etc? Truly pathetic.

On the pseudo-nationalist side of UK politics (as in the USA) you get people, especially those trying to make a living out of their activities, who loudly proclaim their (usually unwanted) allegiance to the Jews and Israel: Katie Hopkins, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, “Tommy Robinson” (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon), Anne Marie Waters, Jayda Fransen, “Sargon of Akkad” (Carl Benjamin) and others.

Politically-speaking, and in fact usually in general, foolish people. They are political nullities, dependent for their income —and such prominence as they have— on their social media profile. If that is taken away, they have nothing left.

Before the political midgets currently “ruling” the UK “defy” China in the South China Sea, they should take a look (Wikipedia has overviews) at the relative strengths of the Royal Navy of the UK, as against the Chinese navy. Britain has about 2 or 3 dozen large ships and submarines, and about 170 naval aircraft. The Chinese have some 600 ships and a similar number of naval aircraft. I suppose the idea is that the UK will be a poodle for American power, again…

The absurd irony is that, while Britain is undertaking gestures of the above sort, Chine people are flooding into the UK. Take a look at any British city. Boris-idiot has also invited up to 6 MILLION Hong Kong Chinese to live here.

Yes, they may be, some of them, anti-Peking. Don’t place too much reliance on that. Anyway, the numbers are huge, and will change our whole society.

Law Commission report on proposed changes to the law on communications offences

“The new “harm-based” communications offence
1.33 The offence that we recommend should replace section 127(1) of the CA 2003 and
the MCA 1988 is an offence based on a communication’s potential for harm rather
than on its content fitting within a proscribed category (such as “grossly offensive” or
“indecent” content). Specifically, we recommend that it should be an offence for a
person to send or post a communication (letter, electronic communication, or “article”,
in the sense of “object”) that is likely to cause harm to a likely audience, intending that
harm be caused to that likely audience. “Harm” for this purpose is defined as
psychological harm amounting to at least serious distress.


1.34 This moves the focus away from broad categories of wrongful content, as we see in
the current offences, to a more context-specific analysis: given those who were likely
to see the communication, was harm likely or not likely? This formulation therefore
ensures that, first, communications that are genuinely harmful do not escape criminal
sanction merely because they cannot fit within one of the proscribed categories.
Secondly, communications that lack the potential for harm are not criminalised merely
because they might be described as grossly offensive or indecent etc
.

1.36 The fault element for our recommended offence is set at a higher level of culpability
than is the case under the current law: the defendant must intend to cause serious
distress. Under section 127(1) CA 2003, the defendant need only have intended to
have sent the communication of the proscribed character (ie they need not have
intended any particular result). The MCA 1988 offence requires proof that the
defendant intended to cause alarm or distress, which is the same fault element as
harassment (but, notably, harassment requires a course of conduct, whereas the
communications offence is complete at the point of sending a single communication).
Our threshold is higher; it requires proof that the defendant intended to cause
psychological harm amounting at least to serious distress
.” [Law Commission report]

I have not yet read the full report, but what I have read so far seems to be (and could hardly not be) an improvement on the existing Communications Act 2003, s.127, which has been abused for years by Jew-Zionist cabals. notably the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” (fake charity) crowd.

I contributed (as a member of the public) to that report. What effect (if any) my contribution had, I have no idea. No matter. “The stars in their courses fight on the side of the just” [Chinese proverb].

I have noticed the same phenomena, more or less, at the Waitrose (the only fairly close local supermarket), a mile or two from my home. I was there yesterday. No-one wearing latex gloves, but 90% or more masked, and I even saw one idiot wearing a helmet with a visor, as though Ebola virus was about, rather than Covid-19 (which has killed about one in every thousand people in the UK, and a far smaller proportion where I live). Different ages, but the vast majority at least of retirement age, reflecting the age-demographic locally (and especially true of local Waitrose shoppers).

Introduce that tyrant to Madame Guillotine.

Remembrance of times past: I recall my mother playing that (on a gramophone, not a piano!); early 1960s, in between her watching Wimbledon on a black and white TV, the curtains of the French windows closed tightly against the July sun.

As I blogged yesterday, for a government to say “not wearing facemasks is not now unlawful but you really should wear one and are expected to wear one” is not only dishonest but trashes the whole concept of the rule of law as understood for the past several centuries. To use social conformity, whipped on by endless msm propaganda, to coerce people into not doing something not unlawful, is a form of tyranny.

Exactly. In fact, the figure may well be far higher. When my mother-in-law, in her late 90s, was admitted to hospital (for a fracture) earlier this year, she was regularly tested for “the virus” during her several weeks there. After a couple of weeks, she tested positive, though showing no symptoms. She was discharged about 2 weeks later. Had she died within 28 days of that positive test, even had she been run down by a car, she would have been part of the lying government statistics, as someone who “died within 28 days of a positive test”.

What I find shocking is how easily even quite intelligent people, supposedly educated people, have been muzzled into conformity. Not only conformity of action (eg the facemask nonsense) but conformity of thought.

The final stage: students told not only what will be questioned on the exam papers, but exactly how to answer…

The System is already inventing enemies. Labelling organizations. Whipping up fear in the msm. Then any individual who is to be repressed can be incarcerated merely by the police and CPS asserting that he or she either belongs to said one or another organization or “supports” it. We have already seen much of that over the past few years.

In fact there is no “far right” “terrorism” in the UK. Young men talking big in public bars, and/or buying such materiel as samurai swords, does not constitute “terrorism” or even the preparation, and certainly not effective preparation, of or for it.

Well, I myself have taken no interest in the said Schauspiel-for-the-masses, but from what I have read here and there, tweeter “@Episode1point0” may well be correct.

A society where the “humanoid insect” will be trackable at all times, when all communications will be monitored (for “criminal” communications such as anything “racist”, rebellious (etc). Third step will be centralized control, so that any car can be stopped by authorities at will, and the occupants abducted or neutralized.

Diary Blog, 11 June 2021, including thoughts about politicization of charities, and about the Maya Forstater case

The charity sector— a “rotten borough”

Sadly, the charity sector has, over decades, developed into a “rotten borough”. There have been so many scandals. Oxfam alone has had many. Legal and political scandals around “charitable status”; sex scandals; money-related scandals. Why?

I believe that, looking at the larger charities, the basic problem is one of focus, going back to those recruited.

There was always a “campaigning” aspect to many of these charities, inasmuch as many of them have always regarded it as part of their remit to campaign for changes in the law, or changes in public behaviour. Examples would include the Salvation Army, and the League Against Cruel Sports, to name but two.

There is inevitably a grey area between such “political” or socio-political campaigning, and outright politicking. This came to a head in the 1980s when it emerged that Oxfam was spending huge amounts of money (money mainly donated by well-meaning members of the public) not only on direct alleviation of poverty in Africa (etc), and not even on effective but indirect poverty-alleviation (eg supporting schools in Africa), but on political propaganda such as anti-apartheid stuff (the false narrative being that poverty in Africa as a whole was somehow caused by apartheid in South Africa, despite the fact that the Africans in South Africa were often better off than Africans in other African states).

In fact, the now nearly 30 years of (notional) black African rule in South Africa have proven that apartheid was not the only or even main factor holding back 99.9% of South African blacks. The new South Africa has quite as much inequality of capital and income as the old South Africa, together with rocketing crime and corruption. All that and virtue-signalling too!

In the UK charity/NGO sector, there have been all the scandals around money and sex, such as at Save The Children, where the head of the organization was getting about £400,000 a year, and where his cronies at the top were getting £200,000 or more, one such crony being the sex-pest Brendan Cox, the then husband of Labour Party MP Jo Cox (who was assassinated in 2016).

The roots of these problems go back to the kind of people recruited. Typical of our age: virtue-signalling “woke” hypocrites, but who are also very interested in money.

There is, also, a persistent problem with many charity staff, at the higher (careerist) levels, being anti-white, meaning anti-European race and culture.

The Maya Forstater case https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_Forstater_v_Centre_for_Global_Development

Incidentally, I see that Martin Daubney’s clip shows Vauxhall Underground Station. I wonder how many, if any (?) SIS staff who use that station, and are not asleep, and see what “British” society now is, have any reservations about defending it?

Sadly, many British people are now scared rabbits, wearing bloody facemasks even in the open air, even when walking alone. That applies particularly to the older population; as to the younger, “woke virtue-signalling idiots” covers many of them. I expect no revolt from the majority, just frightened compliance, maybe with more “North Korea-lite” clapping on command…

Diary Blog, 3 June 2021, including thoughts about Zeppelins and lighter-than-air flight

Interesting historical film

In the public mind, the Zeppelin (used as the generic term for lighter-than-air craft) has passed into history. Its heyday is generally thought of as being the First World War, when the airships were used by the Germans in early “terror” raids over English cities. Not only London: my own grandmother (b.1900), who for some reason now unknown had been sent from Berkshire to a boarding school at Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, actually saw a Zeppelin over her school, probably in 1916.

[a Zeppelin over the Palace of Westminster, London, during the First World War]

It might be a mistake to think that airships have no future. I have always been interested in them as both passenger carriers and for freight carrying to places where transportation is difficult: deep forests, the Siberian taiga, Arctic and Antarctic areas, islands with limited or no port facilities, marshland, swamps etc. Airships could have uses for the police, too. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20191107-how-airships-could-return-to-our-crowded-skies; https://www.cnbc.com/video/2021/02/06/what-happened-to-blimps-and-why-airships-may-make-a-comeback.html

In fact, I do not agree with Hitchens re. Starmer being “deeply revolutionary”. He may well have read and even edited obscure Trotskyist publications when aged 20. Hitchens himself was a Trotskyist at that age, while I, at age 19 and living in a London attic, read, and regularly, everything from the anarchist newspaper Black Flag to the social nationalist magazine, League Review, and many another publication.

You cannot take someone’s views as they were at age 20 as being their settled viewpoints when they are 50, 60, or 70 years old. Keir Starmer may have more radical ideas than Boris Johnson, but for me the difference is that Starmer may actually have a few ideas, however limited, whereas part-Jew chancer, fraud and (ex?) public entertainer “Boris” has no ideas at all, beyond the schoolboy fantasies of bridges over rivers and oceans, artificial islands, tunnels to Ireland etc; the sort of ideas I had when aged about 13.

I wonder why…

Incidentally, that Silverman individual (“Head of Investigations and Enforcement” at the Jew-Zionist Israel-lobby “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”), was exposed in open court a few years ago as having been behind a number of pseudonymous Twitter and other trolling accounts.

In the UK and other Western societies, fanatical Zionist Jews exercise their censorship in different ways, such as trying to have anti-Zionists such as Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, David Icke, and me (among others) shut down, “deplatformed”, even arrested and prosecuted.

I myself have never had any interest in the Eurovision circus, but have also never understood why Israel, a leech state situated in the Middle East, the population of which state is not European, is in Eurovision anyway. Kick it out. Boycott it.

Note the very (((characteristic))) hand gesture made by it.

Ray Gosling, coming from a very different ideological direction, also made some interesting TV: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Gosling#Broadcasting_career; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Betjeman.

Looks nice. I was probably a fool to have turned down the possibility of becoming an undergraduate there (by a back-door route) in 1984 (I wanted to stay in London for various reasons).

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/

Purge of internet radio stations

There seems to be ongoing, and now intensifying, a purge of dissident “radio stations” on the Internet. The noisy “Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake charity yesterday announced that, at its instigation, Devon and Cornwall Police and CPS had charged someone from Cornwall under the Public Order Act 1986.

I was informed by a blog commentator that a former BBC employee who now runs his own “radio station” online from Nottinghamshire, has also been harassed by the police.

We have seen how others who run, or even just talk on, Internet “radio” podcasts are being subjected to similar treatment. Alison Chabloz is on trial, on a similar basis, next week (30-31 March 2021). Good luck and victory to her!

Britain’s toytown police state is gradually developing into a real one, aided by the weaponization of “the virus”, a supine Bar, malleable or complicit judges, conniving mass media, and a non-existent Parliamentary Opposition.

The “average Joe” still has no idea that what we are seeing in the UK is effectively the extirpation of what have passed as “democracy”, most civil rights etc, and all —supposedly— because of a virus that, worldwide, has killed about one person in every 4,000 people.

In reality, this is all, or almost all, simply an easy way to smooth the way for the NWO/ZOG “Great Reset” of 2022, and to set the agenda for the years up to 2055. An attempt to control the current of the Zeitgeist

I myself had a very good year in Kazakhstan (1996-1997), despite occasional problems and, indeed, a scuffle or two.

For once, I find myself in agreement with Fraser Nelson.

A part-Jew public entertainer and jester (and nonstop liar) as Prime Minister? Why not? What could go wrong? Oh, no, wait…

A straw in the wind? Crazies taking over London? Escape from New York? Still, in any possible future actual civil war or situation of complete chaos, I daresay my side would come out on top in the end. It may be decades since I myself fired an R-1 (overseas), a Browning (mainly at the Kensington Rifle and Pistol Club, now long defunct), or even a shotgun (in Ireland and rural England), but think “riding a bicycle”, I suppose. I am sure that whatever will be left, by then, of the British Army and other arms would be on our side.

Whether such a situation will arise in my own lifetime is an open question.

Is my speculation hyperbolic? Perhaps, but you only have to look at the way in which the London police have all but lost control of ordinary crime, only have to see the way the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense led to columns of black militia parading through the streets (with no police response, despite there having been a clear breach of the Public Order Act 1936) to see the way things could go…

The arguments for the BBC “licence fee” (mandatory/universal impost) are all but worthless. Independence from government? Hardy ha ha! Just look at the BBC in the past 20 years! It is effectively a Government mouthpiece, or loudhailer. Quality, as compared to commercial TV? Again, just look at most of the output! It’s terrible!

“Democracy” can only work where reason rules, but emotion trumps reason, and the will trumps both. I have seen, from my own experience of the past decade, that those one would have thought would base their judgments on reason (barristers, magistrates, judges, police, many others) in fact have pretty much thrown away reason, and the wish (or even ability) to use rational thought. Kneejerk reactions, mob emotionalism, and the inability to think, are almost universal now in the UK.

Diary Blog, 12 March 2021, including some thoughts about value

Early thoughts on value and cost

The news that a piece of “digital art”, or electronic art, has been sold at auction for USD $69 million was puzzling. Apparently, such art can be copied for free, without any cost at all.

In other words, the $69,000,000 art can be replicated and used effectively without cost. This is not quite the same, or goes beyond, having a paper or other copy of, say, the Mona Lisa. Any copy of the Mona Lisa is probably subtly different from the real one, whereas (according to BBC Today Programme) the copy of the piece of “digital art” will be exactly the same as the original.

It seems that what is auctioned is not the digital art alone but the art plus an electronic key to the original, which allows the owner of that original to access the blockchain for it, blockchain being defined as follows:

Blockchain is most simply defined as a decentralized, distributed ledger technology that records the provenance of a digital asset“; or

In the simplest terms, Blockchain can be described as a data structure that holds transactional records and while ensuring security, transparency, and decentralization. You can also think of it as a chain or records stored in the forms of blocks which are controlled by no single authority” [and see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blockchain].

In other words, what the purchaser has bought for his $69 million US dollars is the right to change the electronic artwork, just as the owner of the Mona Lisa or other material art has the legal right to add a moustache to the subject, or to take up an axe and chop it to pieces.

In fact, thinking about it, presumably the artwork, if copied by a third party for free, can also be changed for free (though not the accepted “original”). That means that the $69 million US dollars is buying only the notional ownership and nothing else.

The auction of of the $69 million artwork challenges our concept of value. To me, buying “digital art” for more than pennies is completely stupid, but I concede, if it is a concession, that paying out 69 million dollars for any artwork is absurd, even if that artwork were the (original) Mona Lisa or, say (a favourite of mine), Man in Armour by Rembrandt (believed by some to be a representation of Christian Rosenkreutz, said to have been modelled by Titus, son of Rembrandt).

We have recently seen Bitcoin jump (and fluctuate) wildly, having reached the height (today, as I write) of over £41,000 (USD $57,000), having been valued initially in pennies. I have written previously about Bitcoin: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/12/10/thoughts-about-bitcoin/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/02/20/diary-blog-20-february-2021/.

Bitcoin can be sold back, i.e. cashed in, though its real world use is limited. “Digital art” can be sold on as well, if the owner of the art, i.e. holder of the blockchain key, can find a purchaser (in my opinion, mug) willing to take it on.

In my first blog post about Bitcoin, I examined money. Why do we value tokens of monetary value such as banknotes? It all comes down to confidence.

In the end, does Bitcoin have less “legitimacy” or “value” than paper banknotes, or electronic entries on the ledgers of known banks? Maybe not, but that is perhaps less a validation of Bitcoin than a criticism of what we call “money value”.

Has capitalism reached, with the auction of digital art (and, arguende, with the sale of “real” art for sometimes hundreds of millions), a stage of decadent absurdity which may be a predictor of worldwide economic and social collapse? For me, the crazed heights at auction (of both types of art) are a sign of poor judgment as much as anything.

It does make me wonder what kind of person would rather have a piece of digital art than USD $69 million! Does that make me a Philistine, or just not a mug?

Is there a case for artworks of designated importance, of more than a certain age (100 years plus?), and valued at more than a designated level, being held and owned only by specified museums and galleries around the world? It’s a idea (of my own), anyway, though of course that would not stop speculation in artworks of younger age (and we have seen works by many quite recent artists, including Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, even Damien Hirst, go for huge amounts). Neither, of course, would such regulation stop speculation in digital art, not for decades to come, anyway.

For me, this latest art speculation is a societal warning flag.

The odd logic of tweeter “@MenziesBj” reminds me of the similar thinking of not a few instructing solicitors when I was at the practising Bar. There is a phrase in use among barristers, “solicitors go elsewhere“, reflective of the fact that instructing solicitors often stop instructing particular Counsel for no obvious reason.

You would imagine that, if as a barrister you do well in a case, then the solicitor who instructed you would instruct you again, and if you did not do well, would not instruct you again. In fact, while that sometimes does happen, often the reverse is true. No-one knows why.

Barristers are, especially when not in the very top sets, very dependent on their own relationship with solicitors. I was once slightly acquainted with one barrister, in a friend’s chambers, who had a very good practice despite (my impression) being not particularly intelligent. 90% of his work (25 years ago) came from one solicitor (not even one firm, but one individual solicitor in one firm).

One fine day, as Kafka put it in The Trial, that solicitor stopped instructing him; according to that barrister, for no obvious reason. Result? A serious problem for the barrister, obviously. 90% of work gone means about 90% of income gone.

That (nameless) barrister was one of those men who combine a relentlessly politically-correct attitude with a certain amount of sex-pestery, as my friend in his then chambers had mentioned to me. Many years later, one of his pupils, a young woman, made an official complaint about him. I do not know all the details, but he was fined £4,000, and may have been lucky not to have been dealt with more severely.

A personal nexus between a solicitor and a barrister, though inherently precarious, can work in favour of a barrister. I knew another barrister, though not well, who was a member of another friend’s chambers. The former had a friend from university who had become a salaried lawyer in a large organization. That employed lawyer directed work to the barrister. In one year, such work totalled, in fees, some £600,000! That was nearly 30 years ago!

Not quite as good as winning the lottery (or being born into a fortune), but almost.

Heather Burns, policy manager for the digital rights organisation Open Rights Group, said: ‘It’s needles in haystacks, and this is collecting the entire haystack.

‘We should have the right to not have every single click of what we do online hoovered up into a surveillance net on the assumption that there might be criminal activity taking place.’

Privacy International’s advocacy director, Edin Omanovic, echoed a similar sentiment and said: ‘Make no mistake, as warned, the Investigatory Powers Act (2016) gives authorities across the UK some of the most far-reaching and draconian surveillance powers found anywhere in the world.

When the Bill was proposed, we were promised the most transparent surveillance regime in the world. Yet, here we have a secret experiment where two secret internet companies have reportedly been collecting internet browsing data about individuals’ online activities.” [Daily Mail]

“Male curfew”

I missed this latest piece of crazed nonsense, which was being reported upon yesterday, it seems.

https://news.sky.com/story/sarah-everard-green-partys-baroness-jones-suggests-6pm-curfew-for-men-12243194

“Jenny Jones”, aka “Baroness” Jones [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jenny_Jones,_Baroness_Jones_of_Moulsecoomb].

A Green Party peer has suggested a 6pm curfew should be introduced for men in the wake of Sarah Everard’s disappearance.

Baroness Jones of Moulescoomb told the House of Lords that such a move would “make women a lot safer, and discrimination of all kinds would be lessened”.” [Sky News]

What a total loony, even for the Green Party!

Who is she? “Before entering politics, Jones worked as a financial controller in London. She attended the Institute of Archaeology at University College London as a mature student, studying for an MA in archaeology.[1] She spent approximately 10 years as an archaeologist in the Middle East, studying carbonised plant remains, before embarking on a career in politics.” [Wikipedia].

So she was an office bod for a number of years, became a mature student and then studied carbonized plant remains for a decade…oh, and she was a member of the pathetic London Assembly for 4 years, and failed to become an MP twice (in different London constituencies, coming 4th in both elections, getting 6.5% of the vote in one, then 2.9% in the other). She also tried to become Mayor of London, but only received about 4% of the overall vote.

Not a stellar political record, but hey!…this is the UK, where serial failure is rewarded so long as the idiot is “anti-racist” and/or (stand up, Boris-idiot!) pro-Israel. So she was elevated to the House of Lords!

Sometimes, I think that this country is terminally screwed.

Her previous utterances? Let’s see…”She was outspoken about numerous issues including what she called mayor Boris Johnson‘s demonisation of youth through the use of “baseless” rhetoric on “soaring gang-membership and rising knife-crime”, suggesting the mayor created an unhelpful climate of fear.[28] ” [Wikipedia].

As for her curfew idea…look at her!
