Woolly-head Kwarteng “…is said to have told attenders at the reception of austerity-style budget cuts to come while guests drank wine, champagne and cocktails as they congratulated him on the measures announced in the House of Commons, according to the Sunday Times.“
Not a complete list; don’t forget “create the basis for a future super-race” and “eliminate Jew-Zionist exploitation” etc.
Reading some of the tweets by hard-core supporters of the “Bootstrap Cook”, it is clear that quite a few of them are mentally-odd people desperate to “support” (even if only via “slacktivism” and/or “clicktivism”) something vaguely (as they imagine)”progressive”.
For example, I saw some tweets by an elderly Swedish woman resident in the UK, possibly an aged lesbian. People like that just want to “believe”, a bit like the British supporters of Stalin in the 1930s. They do not want dissonant facts to disturb their belief-system.
For once, I agree with the Jesuit anti-pope, but in this situation, one might reiterate Stalin’s rhetorical question, “how many divisions has the Pope?” (referring to Pius XII).
The Roman Catholic Church has run out of road.
The last 30 years in South Africa are a salutary warning of what happens when blacks and other non-whites take political and judicial power in a country previously run by Europeans.
“Foul abuse“? I still have a screenshot of a tweet from several years ago, in which that Lazarus individual tweeted to other Jew-Zionists (connected with the small but well-funded malicious Jew-Zionist pressure group, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”]) that I and another then Twitter user (the same pack of Jews had me expelled from Twitter in 2018) should be given strychnine to drink. Nice “people”…
“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.
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 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 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”. [Wikipedia].
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.
Ha ha. Yes, that ghastly little bastard Schofield is one of the worst people on TV in the UK; and, yes, it is peak contemporary Britain, just like…well, there are just too many examples around…
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).
One or two white children, out of over 30. Scotland’s future? In the centre of the photo, Scotland’s supposedly “nationalist” leader…
Labour, the Conservatives, the economy, and the political fallout
Thus one Marian Kennedy [“writes fiction; international lawyer“] proves that she cannot see the wood from the trees.
The whole point about what seems to have been Delia Smith’s cri de coeur [I did not actually see Peston] is that the present Parliamentary system, the “three main parties” set-up, the voting system, the system for selection of Parliamentary candidates etc, is just not working properly.
It is because of this parallel malfunctioning that, inter alia, we have had as Prime Minister a part-Jew, part-Levantine bad joke, and now we have, in the same high position, a woman who really only became an MP on her back, frankly. The same malfunctioning has resulted in a pretty poor female barrister becoming Home Secretary (not that all of her views are wrong), and a rather thick half-caste with a “degree” in Hospitality Management becoming the new Foreign Secretary; not to mention the woolly-headed African who is now Chancellor of the Exchequer, even if he did attend Eton and Cambridge (both, incidentally, hugely over-rated, as are so many UK institutions: Oxford University, the Church, the Bar, SIS, MI5, the armed forces, the Monarchy etc).
The whole system is broken. Delia Smith may have been unable, on a TV programme, to articulate it in detail, but she got the basics right.
Ironically, “In 2014, [Kwasi Kwarteng’s] book War and Gold: A Five-Hundred-Year History of Empires, Adventures and Debt was published. It is a history of capital and the enduring ability of money, when combined with speculation, to ruin societies. “
Another opinion from the same lady as above:
Well, Corbyn actually did better than many believe, electorally, but what sank him and Labour in 2019 was mainly a triad of factors: the relentless, daily, Jew-lobby campaign since 2015, painting him as terrorist-enabler, hopeless etc; the eccentric FPTP voting system, and finally the way in which political snake-oil salesman and “controlled opposition” big cheese, Nigel Farage, stabbed his own party and its candidates in the back, with most Brexit Party votes then falling to Conservative candidates.
Labour under Starmer was also in the doldrums, and deserved to be, but now that the Conservative Party has hit (surely?) rock-bottom in terms of its top leadership, Labour can just sit and rake in its chips.
Not very many people really like, trust, or support Labour or Starmer, but in a basically binary system where one party is sawing off the branch upon which it has been sitting, the other party, Labour, has every chance, simply by default.
Talking about how the Conservative Party is ruining its own electoral chances, I was frankly astounded to read that, by reason of Kwarteng’s unbelievable mismanagement and lack of nous, the present Government may actually fund their tax cuts for the affluent and wealthy by cutting pensions and benefits in real terms. For example, by only uprating State pensions by, say, 5% at a time when inflation is forecast to go to at least 10% and maybe 20%.
Already, we see that most State benefits (including Pension Guarantee Credit) will not be uprated to anything like inflation-level.
Who votes Conservative? Mostly, most obviously, people over 60, and especially people over 80. This is the absolute core of Conservative Party electoral support. If you cheat them (for the second year running) of the promised “triple lock” uprating, then you, the Conservative Party, are going to be well and truly f*****. Not a term I use often on the blog.
We know how nuanced the FPTP voting system can be. It was said that, in 2017, a few thousand voters in a small number of constituencies (a hundred or two hundred in each) could actually have changed the outcome of the General Election.
In 2019, 67 seats were won by a margin of less than 5% of votes cast. In 2017, 97 seats.
In 2019, 141 seats were won or held by margins of less than 10% of votes cast:
More than a fifth of all constituencies.
Not only are pensioners (of which, incidentally, I am now one) most likely to vote Conservative (not me, of course), but they are most likely, of all age groups, to vote at all, both in general and via postal balloting.
If the pensioners and the “struggling middle”, as well as the low paid and more obviously poor, decide to vote elsewhere than Conservative, or even simply not to vote at all, the Conservative party might lose an incredible number of seats. Maybe a hundred; maybe two hundred.
At present, the Conservative Party has 357 seats in the Commons (out of 650). If that were to be reduced to 257, or 157, the effect would be seismic.
If the Conservative Party leadership think that the English and general UK “grey vote” is guaranteed whatever, and that those votes can be taken for granted, they are very much mistaken. That’s what idiots like Jim Murphy thought about the Scottish Labour vote, once.

I remember seeing, on American TV, the Poll Tax riots in London about 32 years ago. Could it happen again, or would it this time be a slower burn, via everything from simple poverty-fuelled shoplifting to occasional outbreaks of politically-oriented vandalism, or even “protest” assassination of MPs and/or ministers?
Over the past decade, I have had the feeling that the succession of poor Prime Ministers were not fatal for the Conservative Party, because all that the Party had to do was to replace the leader, and the voters would give the new leader a chance. At the same time, Labour was falling into a niche composed of public service workers, and some of the non-white “communities”.
Now, there is a change, caused mainly by the sheer ineptitude of the “unelected” (in terms of true mandate) Prime Minister and her Cabinet. There is a feeling that, this time, the Conservatives have really hit rock bottom, and even if people are not going to vote Labour, the Conservatives have definitely lost the votes of the vast majority.
This could be almost existential for the Conservative Party.

The NWO endgame sees Russia (Russian Federation) as a broken-up series of minor states, all ruled by the money power [ZOG] and completely without military might. However, I think that, before that can come to pass, Russia may be goaded into launching its nuclear arsenal against the West, and particularly the USA.
After WW2, despite the Cold War, the American public and decision-makers thought the USA invulnerable. It could invade other countries, interfere with other countries, even bomb (conventionally) other countries, without any comeback.
The 2001 attack on the World Trade Center changed that. The incredible, totally scalded, American reaction said it all to me— “we can be hit“…
All the same, that was over 20 years ago now, and the Americans still do not really think that their cities might one day be rubble, like those the Americans (and British) reduced to rubble in WW2: Berlin, other German cities, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki etc.
Looking at the pronouncements of various American generals, former commanders, think tanks etc, their consensus seems to be that the USA can match the Russian nuclear arsenal, and more, and that even a nuclear exchange could be limited, and then halted. I think not.
If Russia uses tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine, and if then “NATO” (USA/NWO) attacks Russia or Russian concentrations or bases, whether or not with nuclear forces, I think that an escalation to a strategic nuclear exchange more than likely.
True, that would probably mean, as well as elimination of Russian air bases, missile centres, ports, destruction of major Russian cities such as Moscow, Petersburg, Novosibirsk and others. However, it would not be a one-sided conflict.
Russia has, it is said, perhaps 6,000 nuclear weapons. Let us say that it managed to land at least one on each of the top 100 American cities.
The top 10? New York, LA, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, San Antonio.
So all of those, and maybe the next 90 largest cities…
How long would it be before the USA recovered? 100 years? 200?
What about the UK? London gone. The next half-dozen largest cities gone, so maybe Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff, Plymouth, Southampton, Bristol. Others, too. All ports of any size. Air bases etc.
There should be serious thought now about how not to get into a nuclear exchange with Russia.
This whole “pro-Ukraine” (anti-Russia) campaign is being spearheaded by the Jew element. You only have to look at social media to see it.
Ha. Woolly-head Kwasi— what an Uncle Tom for the milieu of the hedge funds.
Is it inoperative? Why is gas apparently bubbling out of it, then? Puzzling.
“NATO” is just a label. Think “New World Order” [“NWO”].
Some of these “Covid” and “vaccine” fanatics would go along with the sacrifice of all first-born children if some law, confirmed as “necessary” by priests of medicine in white outfits, were laid down by a supposedly “caring sharing” government. Watch this space.
We now live in an infested slum, nationwide. Indeed —judging by the way (West) Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands have declined since the 1980s— Europe-wide, though there may be exceptions. Paris? Don’t remind me (it’s too sad).
Ha ha! An obvious fake. Unusual. Kiev-regime propaganda has generally been very skilled since the start of the conflict, easily beating the few Russian attempts to counter it.
[Update, 29 September 2022: Sikorski later deleted his tweet thanking the USA for having sabotaged the Nordstream2 pipeline].
Radek Sikorski has an unusual background. Granted asylum while a student in the UK in 1982, he went to Oxford (how?) and, despite lack of personal or family wealth, somehow became a member of the wealthy yob society, the Bullingdon, along with part-Jews “Boris” Johnson and David Cameron-Levita. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rados%C5%82aw_Sikorski.
[According to David Dimbleby, until Cameron-Levita and Johnson joined, the Bullingdon had been “a club for young gentlemen“, which however was then perverted by the pair mentioned].
Was Sikorski helped to get on terms with young aspirants to the “British Establishment”? If so, by whom— and why?
Was Sikorski spotted as a talented young Pole who might be able, down the line, to advance a Westernizing agenda in Poland, as a wedge into the then-monolithic-seeming Soviet imperium? I wonder.
After graduation from Oxford, Sikorski was soon writing for major publications in the UK, such as the Daily Telegraph and the Spectator. He was also working as a freelance foreign correspondent in places such as Afghanistan.
Sikorski is married to Anne Applebaum [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Applebaum], the well-known American Jewish writer and analyst who was apparently so struck by my tweets when I still had a Twitter account (a pack of malicious Jews had me chucked off in 2018) that she blocked me (for no obvious reason that I can recall).
I have a couple of her books.
A couple completely tied in to the NWO agenda, it seems.
He’s really asking for it. Poland was not a passive victim in 1939. There had been years of abuse before that, directed at Germany and at the German population trapped in the Polish Corridor [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_Corridor]. Now Sikorski, like the Polish officials of the 1930s, attempts to stoke tensions, this time mainly with Russia. Not a very clever move.
What is his, or the, real agenda here?
If the USA, using perhaps a submarine and/or US Navy Seals, blew a hole in Nordstream2, that is pretty much an act of war.
Keir Starmer, the Jewish lobby puppet now leading the Labour Party, wanted a perfectly stage-managed “Conference” (show or Schauspiel) for the msm to relay to a bemused public. Barring a couple of hiccups such as the above (a fixed non-vote), he got what he wanted.
In fact, the public only see, and only want to see, a few seconds on the TV news anyway.
Starmer need not worry. Most British people are content, at least so far, to be bamboozled by a mainly Jewish-manipulated binary choice between equally-fake “Conservative” and “Labour” (with the odd “dustbin” alternative as necessary, the LibDems).
The Liz Truss government was doomed from its inception, and Starmer thinks, with some justification, that all he need do now is wait.
Some people, rightly or not, have questioned Alison’s judgment, but none can question her courage.

Interesting “moral maze” point. “Boris”-idiot was behaving with disgusting and petty intent; Kwarteng is a woolly-headed n****r who knows no better, arguende.
Having said that, Kwarteng’s negligence or sheer stupidity (assuming that this is not all part of the overall conspiracy) will have far worse effects on the UK.
I am getting excited. If a social-national party can emerge, credible and with ideologically correct and firm leadership, it might find a ready audience —at last, at long last— in a Britain completely blasted by fake “liberal democracy”. Everything could change almost overnight.
As Lenin said, “worse will be better”.
Never forget that, as late as 1928, the NSDAP was getting a national vote of only 2.6%, and that year had elected only 12 members of the Reichstag, out of 491.
I myself also recall my visits to Eastern Europe in the late 1980s (mainly 1988 and 1989). In 1988, those states were potentially unstable, but still apparently securely fixed in terms of who was in power. By late 1989, they had all collapsed, politically and, indeed, socially.

True, but such comparisons do not butter any parsnips, in the North British saying.
Again true. Refer to my previous comment.
What a time to have an international crisis of the present magnitude. The leader of the USA and, in effect, NATO and/or the Western world, is at least half-demented, the Prime Minister of the UK is a stupid and ignorant woman completely out of her depth, and the leader of Russia is being painted into a corner and is frankly unpredictable.
“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…”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Only because Peter Hitchens and others publicly prominent made a fuss. Others less supported are still going to be “cancelled”, and will be until the officials of PayPal, and major banks etc, are actually afraid to behave in the way they now do.
“A migrant who came to the UK by boat and claimed to be a child so he could stay is actually in his mid-20s, and even joined an over-30s dating group, before he was caught out by his grey hairs and stubble.”
I suggest the construction of a wide canal from, perhaps, the Thames to the Wash. These invaders can help to dig it. At the end, those still alive can have the choice of an air ticket back home and £100 in cash, or to face the wall, afterwards to be buried nearby.
Truss/Starmer, Con/Lab…all part of the same NWO-ZOG pack. They all follow the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan.
Liz Truss is just another NWO/ZOG traitor and puppet, and hugely ignorant and thick to boot.
So much for centuries of Irish nationalism! Meanwhile, the pseudo-nationalists of Sinn Fein go down on one knee for the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense at a time when Ireland has been invaded by non-whites.
The point is that the banks and others, such as PayPal, are now taking it upon themselves to decide that this account [i.e. this customer] is OK and can therefore continue to have banking services, but that that account [that customer] is not OK, because that second person, individual or organization, is not signed up to the System agenda, meaning, inter alia, “Covid” panicdemic, “vaccine” for Covid, multiracialism, the multikulti society, mixed-race populations, “refugees welcome” nonsense, “trans” nonsense, “holocaust” nonsense and fake history…you name it.
Oh, and when this happens, the self-describing “Left” will just say that organizations such as PayPay (Facebook, Twitter, you name it) are entitled to lay down and enforce —however arbitarily, however lacking in appeal rights— such “terms and conditions as they like.
The death of old-style “Leftism”, old-style socialism, happened long ago, in the years following 1989, and its adherents are now just going through the motions.
The facade of “liberal democracy” has just had another massive hole blasted in it.
More about “the Harry formerly known as Prince” and the “royal” Mulatta
Still, from the totally self-centred Ayn Rand point of view, Meghan Mulatta has “played a blinder”. Look at it. Someone brought up in modestly-comfortable circumstances in California, and who had a few years of television success as an actress in one particular drama series (pay around £300,000 p.a. gross in UK money), someone who was married to an American Jew film producer for 18 months (and then not-married to a TV chef for another year or two), but who has rescued her fortunes by attaching herself to a quite likely mentally-disturbed and certainly rather thick British princeling, and is reportedly worth several hundred million dollars now.
That’s the Mulatta— on the make; an adventuress worthy of the pen of Thackeray. What, though, of “the Harry formerly known as Prince”? He is always photographed in the shadow of the Mulatta. I have noted in past years his obvious emotional or mental problems, and he has been fortunate in that the Mulatta and her behaviour do take much flak which otherwise might come his way. It seems that his own behaviour is often not polite or pleasant (a problem the Royal Family in general has always had, with the exception of the late Queen and, to a lesser extent, Charles).
This whole “right royal” nonsense must now come to an end. After all, without the “Prince” bit (and all the money), would Harry be more than a not-very-bright junior officer, destined never to rise above captain, or possibly major? He might be something like a driving instructor or, funds permitting, a farmer.
Does Britain really need a “royal family”? I think not. The death of the late Queen has surely drawn a line under that part of history.
As for the Harry and Meghan show, once they are back in California permanently, interest will slowly fade, and they will fill the niche once occupied by Edward Windsor and Mrs Simpson.
I do not think that they will divorce, though. After all, the Mulatta is still a duchess, nominally, and she may find that (and the whole UK royal connection) useful (though I note the reported anger of the couple that they were not to be entitled “Prince and Princess” under the new Charles III regime).
In a way, I feel a little sorry for Harry, married to that narcissistic, wheedling, demanding creature. Royal Married with Children (as I prophesied years ago).
I do not feel very sorry for him, though. After all, he is now 38 (she is 41), has had more privilege than almost anyone else in the UK, and lives in luxury. He should grow up.
I feel more sorry for the millions of British people unable to heat their homes or feed their families as the Royal Cuck and Mulatta sun themselves on the Californian coast.
A more severe case, arguably, than that of Meghan Markle.
The USA is not alone in having hysterical people, usually women. However, I was once, over 30 years ago, on the bus into Manhattan, when such an incident occurred.
The express buses in my part of New Jersey (near the Jersey Shore) mostly went from the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan to quite far south, Toms River (halfway between Manhattan and Atlantic City). About 10 stops in all. My local stop was the last before Manhattan, going in the other direction. About a one-hour journey or slightly shorter.
I got on such a bus in late afternoon. The bus was quite full. I was the only passenger getting on.
After 45 mins, as we reached the Lincoln Tunnel entrance (to go under the Hudson), the two teenage Jewish boys who had been whispering, and smirking over their shoulders at a fat black woman with a white male companion (wearing a Western jacket and hat) a few rows back, got a shock as the black woman suddenly stood up and started yelling about how she had had enough and was not going to take it any more and how the Jewish teenagers should burn in hell. She however subsided after that, and the rest of the journey concluded in relative peace.
Sadly, even the UK now has many hysterical people and, indeed, many noisy ones, of which many, though far from all, are non-white.

Anyway, there is no Russian “master plan” to annex or recover the Baltic states or, as Russians call them, the pribaltika. Why would Russia even want them?
That “JimmySecUK” individual is always supportive of anything done by the NWO powers. I strongly suspect Jewish, though that is unproven. Seems to pose as someone in the area journalism/”national security”/”international strategy”, but is apparently unwilling to supply on Twitter (where he has 52,000 “followers”, for what that may be worth) either his own name or those of any organizations to which he supplies copy or information.
A superannuated student without a real job or career? I do not know. I await further information.
Just saw this, about Canada in the Second World War:
“On 27 April 1942, a plebiscite was held on the question, “Are you in favour of releasing the Government from any obligations arising out of any past commitments restricting the methods of raising men for military service?” In Quebec, the Ligue pour la Défense du Canada was founded to campaign for the “No” side under the slogan Jamais, Jamais…a dit M. Lapointe, a reference to King’s Quebec lieutenant, Ernest Lapointe, who had died of cancer in November 1941 and was fiercely opposed to sending the Zombies overseas. The Ligue pour la Défense du Canada united the entire spectrum of political opinion in Quebec; some of its most effective speakers were André Laurendeau, Henri Bourassa, Jean Drapeau and a young Pierre Trudeau.La Ligue pour la Défense du Canada professed to speak for all of Canada in opposing conscription, but its French-Canadian nationalist message had little appeal outside of French Canada. Reflecting the quasi-fascist mood of the nationalist intelligentsia of Quebec, speakers for the League often expressed approval of Vichy France, citing its Révolution nationale as a model for Quebec, and expressed a “disturbing anti-Semitic tendency”. [“disturbing“…ha ha]. One rally for the League in Montreal ended with speakers blaming Canada’s Jewish community for dragging the country into a war with Nazi Germany that did not concern French-Canadians. The event almost degenerated into a pogrom, with attendees beating up Jews on the streets of Montreal and smashing windows of Jewish shops; only the prompt intervention of the Montreal police put an end to the violence.”
“Aubrey Allegretti, political correspondent: Kwarteng starts by pinning the blame for inflation and spiralling energy bills directly on Putin.“
Well, after all, it could not be the fault of the Boris-idiot government, which all but shut down the UK economy for 2 years for no good reason, while doling out free money like a drunken sailor…oh, wait a minute…
“Aubrey Allegretti: Kwarteng seeks to turn the last 12 years of Conservative economic wisdom on its head and present the government as new and radical – rather than hanging on the coattails of the last one.
He lays out his central point that “growth is not as high as it should be”, arguing this only leads to less money to fund public services, relying on higher taxes, and so on.
“We need a new approach for a new era” should be seen as nothing less than a bid to reinvent the Conservatives and present them as a party of change – to avoid being blamed for the mistakes of the past. (Despite, of course, Truss having served in the previous three Conservative governments.)“
This mini-budget is completely mad. The result can only be roaring inflation, higher interest rates for businesses and mortgage-payers, and before very long a huge spike in house-repossessions as people default on the mortgage commitments taken out in easier times.
Reducing tax for those earning over £140,000 —about 3x or 4x the average pay? That is just ridiculous and will be applied to purchase of hedging assets (including paying off any mortgage commitments such higher-earners may have).
Stimulation of the economy requires more money at the bottom end, where people are almost compelled by circumstances to spend on goods and services, not at the top end of the income scale.
Today, the pound sterling is down, as I write, by about 2%. Interest rates for UK government borrowing are rising steeply.
A budget of this sort does nothing for the poor (however defined), nothing for the bulk of the population, and only helps those already affluent or wealthy.
Indeed, it might be said that the “middle ranks”, meaning people without much capital, working for a modest living, paying off a mortgage, paying for children and a household, will be hit very hard.
If only there were an existing, tightly-controlled, social-national party, —even if small— and with credible policies and people. One does not exist. Somewhere soon down the road might come a “1929” moment. That was what started the NSDAP and Hitler on its path to glory (ultimately, tragic glory, but that is another question).
The authoress, Hilary Mantel, has died.
I was struck by this, seen on her Wikipedia entry:
“In an 2013 interview with the Telegraph, Mantel stated: “I think that nowadays the Catholic Church is not an institution for respectable people.” She continued in the interview to say: “When I was a child I wondered why priests and nuns were not nicer people. I thought that they were amongst the worst people I knew.” These statements, as well as the themes explored in her earlier novel Fludd, led some to question her work in Wolf Hall, with Bishop Mark O’Toole noting: “There is an anti-Catholic thread there, there is no doubt about it. Wolf Hall is not neutral.”.”
I myself had no contact with Roman Catholicism as a child. Indeed, I do not think that I even knew any Roman Catholics until I was in my early 20s. All the same, the few impressions that I had then were not favourable, as when I was in Ireland aged about 21 and had left Tralee station to walk or hitch-hike to the mountains. A small car approached, the first one since Tralee. I stuck out my thumb, only for the miserable-looking bastards on board, a thin, rat-faced and bespectacled Catholic priest, and a thoroughly nasty-looking nun (who was driving), to pass me without even a glance.
After a week or so in the sea-mountains, I returned the same way. Again, a car approached. The same car. The same occupants. I thought that this time they would stop, having seen me the previous week. No. Straight on past, not sparing me a look.
Miserable bastards, whom I hope met a miserable end.
Incidentally, I did get a lift eventually, in both directions; on the journey out, from an attractive dark-haired young Irishwoman who would not accept a chocolate from me because it was Lent.
The years spin past ever-quicker. That was in early 1979, all of 43 years ago now.
Exactly. Both above tweets are right. The income point however leaves out the main difference between the few and the many, the capital held by each group.
The average Joe has no, or virtually no, capital. In fact, if you leave aside any equity value in residential property owned (usually just one dwelling, and Average Joe himself lives in it), most British people really only have a tiny amount of capital, a few thousand pounds, or even just a few hundred.
The wealthy few however, are often not at all dependent on income as such, certainly not income from any ordinary job. Their capital, invested in real property, or shares etc, is the key to their wealth. Careful investment and accountancy can mean that Average Millionaire/Billionaire Joe has almost no taxable income at all, while in any given year, his capital might have increased by 20%, 50%, even 1,000%.
The wealthiest of all have seen their capital increase hugely since the last financial crash in 2008; The Elon Musks (from about USD $2 billion to about USD $277 billion— in just one decade), the Jeff Bezos’s etc.
People like that laugh at the very idea of income tax. It is simply irrelevant to most of them. Look at the Duke of Westminster, small compared to the mega-billionaires, but still worth £10 billion -£20 billion. Then compare that to the Average Joe, who might (or might not) own, even including his house equity, maybe £200,000 or so. £1 for every £10,000 owned by the Duke of Westminster, and maybe £1 for every £150,000 owned by Elon Musk.
I myself had a great many problems with HMRC long ago. Partly but not entirely self-inflicted, and all now (long ago, over a decade ago) resolved to my satisfaction. I never ever encountered a bureaucracy as shambolic (as well as, in some cases, unpleasant) as HMRC. Not in Eastern Europe, not in the former Soviet Union, not in the USA (which came close, at times).
Look at them: Charles, Anne, Edward, Andrew, Harry (formerly known as “Prince”), William. Are any of them beyond mediocre in intellect, character, or in any way other than unearned and unmerited wealth? Most of them do not even pay taxes.
Meanwhile, Kelvin McKenzie, formerly of the Sun “newspaper”, exposes his ignorance once again:
McKenzie seems unaware that there is more to tax than income tax and inheritance tax. To give the obvious example (obvious at least to anyone better-informed than McKenzie), everyone pays VAT, a tax which is a major contributor to State funds, and is paid disproportionately by the poorer part of the population.
I have to admit that I have little interest in the minutiae of it all, but from the ruthless, Ayn Rand, callous self-interest point of view, the Mulatta has, as they say, “played a blinder”.
Putin’s decision to invade, as such, was not a mistake, but the decision to invade without proper preparation, without a proper plan, without having eliminated Zelensky, and with no proper logistics in place, was more than a mistake. It was criminally negligent. The GRU and General Staff should be purged, cut to the bone. Start again, as Stalin did.
It could have been done swiftly, with minimal hurt and damage.
Where can I get one of those? Or both.
True, but remember how Blair, and Brown in particular, worshipped the banking “industry” (sometimes useful but basically parasitic service industry).
More thoughts about the “mini-Budget”
Seems that “the markets” are dropping like a stone.
I mean, a simple-minded, almost cretinous Budget, announced by a woolly-headed n****r posing as Chancellor of the Exchequer; then we have a semi-educated half-caste with a “degree” in Hospitality Management posing as Foreign Secretary, and a stupid and ridiculous woman (who only became an MP on her back), actually posing as Prime Minister….what could possibly go wrong?
Jesus Christ! Is that stupid lot the best “the great Conservative Party” (in the words of Disraeli, his sentence ending “which destroys everything“…) can do? And is that hopelessly banal package of economic measures the summation of their thoughts?

So speaketh the “Levelling Up Secretary” and, prior to that (incredibly), Chief Secretary to the Treasury.
When you look at the pack of cretins now running this unbelievable bad joke of a government, you realize anew how truly unfit for purpose our political system has become.
Sparks a few memories.
The UN Centre in Vienna (actually on the edge of the city) is an odd place; at least that was my impression when I saw it in the mid-1980s. A concrete fortress or “island” (not literally, though actually on a large island in the Danube), set in quite a green area between the old Vienna and a newer section.
I used to swim, almost every day during my visit, at the not-far-away Alte Donau Strandbad, a closed-off section of the Danube that is either an “oxbow lake” or an artificial version of one. Superb place. Clean river water, a green park, properly-run facilities for changing etc and, best of all, few people. I was there on weekdays, when even in high summer the bulk of the hardworking population were at their jobs.
You cannot just wander into that UN Centre. Even in those days you had to have a pass issued by the security kiosk there. I did not have to get a tourist pass because someone I knew who worked there got me a different kind of visitor pass. The difference was that tourists get a guided tour, whereas I was fairly free to wander around.
A large collection of buildings.
I remember trying to get a sense of what is quite a confusing set-up. I remember seeing a noticeboard with ads for various kinds of local staff. The rates of pay, as far as I could see, were far better than the same people would get in Vienna itself, and were of course not taxable (UN employees do not pay national income tax but only a kind of UN tax, which is far lower).
Another thing that struck me was the Commissary, which no doubt had its origins in the immediately postwar 1940s days when almost everything was unobtainable, but what is odd about that is that the UN Centre in Vienna was established only in 1980, a mere few years before I visited! So a mystery. Maybe there was an earlier, smaller mission.
That Commissary, about the size of a medium-level convenience store, sold duty-free food and drink (including booze) to anyone who was a UN employee or, I think, accredited diplomat. A strange “boondoggle”, in the American phrase. I noticed (I think on a Friday), a couple of (from their stature and looks) East African women, buying Scotch.
Not sure I would call them “happy days”, but not very unhappy, anyway.
The Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation is Sergei Lavrov.
Now let us examine his present opposite number in the UK, James Cleverly, Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs.
Cleverly, a “half-caste” (in the old term), with a British father and a mother from Sierra Leone, seems to have wanted an Army career.
According to Wikipedia, Cleverly “trained in the Army“, whatever that may mean (no detail of whether he was training to be an officer or as an enlisted soldier, presumably the latter, nor of where he trained, nor in what regiment or corps), but suffered a leg injury in 1989 and had to drop out. He would have been 19 or 20 at that time.
Cleverly was involved, not terribly successfully (one can surmise) in business and executive activities during the years up to about 2008, but by then was involved in two side-activities which proved more fruitful for him— politics, and the then Territorial Army (now, Reserves).
Cleverly’s leg injury had obviously been resolved by the time he was commissioned in the TA as 2nd lieutenant in 1991. He stuck at that for the following 14 years, reaching the rank of Lt. Col by 2015.
In politics, Cleverly was a London Assembly member for 8 years from 2007. Cleverly then benefited from the scandal around the ineffectual Jew sex pest and pervert Brooks Newmark, who had to stand down as MP for Braintree (Essex). Cleverly replaced Newmark.
Cleverly’s time as MP has not been distinguished, but the upheavals within the Conservative Party led to him being appointed as a Minister of State in 2020 and now, under Liz Truss, as Secretary of State. His appointment dates from 6 September 2022, about two weeks ago.
Well, there it is. Sergei Lavrov’s background, languages, and 18 years of experience (and many successes) in post, as against James Cleverly’s background, lack of success (other than in narrow career terms), two years of arguably relevant experience, and time in post as Secretary of State five minutes (putting it flippantly).
It will be recalled that when (also absurdly) Liz Truss was Foreign Secretary, Lavrov easily made a fool of her, inducing her to say that quite well-known cities in Russia should be given “back” to Ukraine (the stupid woman had no idea that they never had been part of Ukraine; one was not far from Moscow).
Liz Truss was an embarrassment as Foreign Secretary; she is just ludicrous as Prime Minister. Now someone even less educated is Foreign Secretary. This country is screwed.
Sergei Lavrov will win no plaudits for his kindly good nature, but on whom would you bet your money?
Late afternoon music
While it may seem cruel to mock someone who, quite obviously, is not always compos mentis, that person, Biden, heads the most powerful country on Earth, with enough nuclear weaponry to send us all permanently into orbit. It is all very well to say that he is not really in charge, but that simply raises the question, “who is?” or “what cabal is?“, and what is the real agenda?
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.
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.
Of course, Zelensky, as a Jew, is neither Ukrainian nor Russian.
Macron will have to go home to mama, or should that be to Mme. Macron?
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.
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.
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.”
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.
“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.”
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.
“The protesters disrupted speeches by the Standing For Women founder Kellie-Jay Keen and other speakers.
Keen has frequently attracted the ire of pro-trans activists over her views on gender rights.
The women’s rights campaigner said today: ‘Shouting fascist in front of a baby is a particularly visible sign of how this movement is full of absolute lunacy. As far as I’m concerned transgender ideology is a quasi-religious cult and it’s very dangerous.
‘It seeks to use fear and intimidation to silence dissent. I’ve been interviewed by the police twice and arrested once.“
“Fear“…”intimidation“…[and false complaints to] “police“. Pretty similar to the tactics of the Jew-Zionists, as I know from my own experience.
What most people forget, though, is how the present system, “the System”, is deliberately encouraging not only the “trans” nonsense, but other nonsense, such as “Black Lives Matter”, “Covid” hysteria, the white British “terrorism” “threat” hysteria (the “threat” is, in fact, non-existent), anti-Russia hysteria etc. Look at the behaviour of the police in places such as Brighton, as well as in the major cities, painting their cars in weird colours, allowing Notting Hill rioters…I mean “revellers“…to simulate sex with the women police officers, etc.
More tweets seen
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.
This sort of nonsense is now so common that I almost fail to be enraged at it. Symptomatic of an academia that should be eliminated, and then replaced by a better establishment.
Looks like the lesser finance-capitalist and hanger-on “executive” rats are leaving what they imagine to be Russia’s sinking ship…
I wonder what the general’s thoughts will be when Russian nuclear missiles rain down on every major city in the USA, including one or two in Florida, where he lives? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Hodges.
Saw a few minutes of the TV news this evening. Highlights of Putin’s statement of this morning. My impression, regardless of anything else, is that, as he said, he is certainly not bluffing.
I am not “allowed” (in our “free” country) to say…
Import the backward hordes, and you also import their politics and their ancient hatreds.
The knaves and/or traitors at a high level in Britain have, for over 70 years, permitted and even encouraged the importation into this country of backward hordes of various types. Those hordes have, since allowed in, been breeding prolifically. It already looks like an existential crisis not only for the British people but for Britain as a nation.
Meanwhile, the State regards all attempts by young Englishmen to gather together in defence of race, nation, and culture as a form of “terror threat”, to be stamped on by the police and security services.
Another “strange” (perhaps not so strange) anomaly is that quite a number of young Jews go every year from the UK, France etc to Israel to be trained in the use of automatic and semi-automatic weapons, as well as in Israeli techniques of street-fighting. The Jewish influence over the UK political milieu, as well as the police, means that this is regarded as not a problem for the UK…
I would in any case encourage all parents in the UK to homeschool their children. Many think that it is either illegal or very difficult. Not so. See https://www.gov.uk/home-education.
The cost, though huge, is not the main problem with this.
As to numbers, you only have to look. In 2018, “only” 299 actually crossed the Channel in small boats. Last year, 2021, that had grown to over 25,000, and this year is estimated to reach 65,000.
One or two well-publicized incidents of migrant-invaders being shot and killed in the Channel by the Royal Navy, and few would even try.
That, of course, cannot happen, not because of international conventions and/or similar bs, but because, as previously noted, the political system in the UK is wholly adherent to the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, to basically bastardize the peoples of Europe.
What Hitchens does not say is that almost all of the crowds were white English or at least British; very few blacks and browns. Pretty obvious why— this country, and its history and traditions, mean little or nothing to 99% of them. In a word, they are alien.
Speaking of journalistic effluvia, I saw a piece of fake Union Jack-waving nonsense from Andrew Neil last week, saying what a wonderful and united country Britain is, and how we should all be grateful and —implied, at least— not try to change it.
Andrew Neil used to be the best political interviewer around, and also a perceptive commentator, though he sometimes made the odd and silly rant on his late-night TV show, usually attacking “nazis” etc. Still, he was almost always worth watching or, to a lesser extent, and in the msm, reading. He has really begun to disappoint.
Incidentally, it is both amusing and pathetic to see the self-describing “Left” (I myself never use left/right labelling) angry (not angry really, of course, but just virtue-signalling) about the cost of the funeral etc of the late Queen.
The same idiots do not care that (already) several BILLION pounds annually is being wasted on the hotels, council housing, food, gifts, pocket-money and other things (eg NHS care) for cross-Channel migrant invaders, almost all of which invaders are entirely useless, and quite a number actively hostile and/or criminal.
Interview with the Iranian President
So here we are, 77 years after the end of the Second World War, after the bombing of Germany by the Allied forces (death toll 600,000-800,000), after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, after Vietnam, after the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan (hundreds of thousands killed), and after all sorts of other American transgressions, but when CBS 60 Minutes has a chance to interview Presiodent Raisi of Iran, what is the hot question? “Did the “holocaust” happen?“
The Iranian should have replied that no-one really claims that large numbers of Jews found within Reich territory were not detained, but most of those worked in industrial camps, and the majority that survived were released at the end of hostilities (and then went to various places, including Palestine, where they chucked many Palestinians out of their homes and took them over; stole their homes, if you like).
In fact, there is no credible evidence for much of the “holocaust” farrago, in particular the “biggest lie”, that about supposed “gas chambers”.
Any simple internet search will also turn up literally thousands of cases of “holocaust” fakery, hoaxes, fraud etc, from quite obscure examples to famous ones such as the supposed Anne Frank diary.
