The UK, a country in which, in recent years, a barrister (me) can be disbarred for tweeting five completely true and accurate tweets about society generally (see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/); a country in which an ex-soldier with an exemplary record in Afghanistan and elsewhere (Jeremy ‘Jez’ Bedford-Turner) can be imprisoned because he had the temerity to suggest that Jews be expelled from the UK in a humorous speech; a country in which a professional singer and entertainer (Alison Chabloz) can lose her job because a few malicious Jews targeted her employer, and later find herself actually imprisoned for posting a satirical song or two on the Internet!
You can see the way the UK is going. It is not going that way by accident…
If the world suffers great calamities soon, it may be necessary to institute a “revaluation of all values” in rebuilding it.
The old institutions have become corrupted empty shells which are filling with Evil. They may have to be eliminated.
Please refer to my last comment, above…
Note Hitchens’ timescale. 1989…the last pivotal year; the previous one was 1956, the one before that, 1923. The next pivotal year will be 2022, and the international conspiracy/consensus is trying to seize it, and with it the agenda for the 33 years starting then. Inter alia, the “Great Reset”, and with it, “the Great Replacement” of people in Europe and elsewhere.
These people should be on our side!
There is no point in refighting the war of 1939-45 (on the Eastern Front, mainly 1941-45). The Reich has passed into history, but so has the Soviet Union, and indeed Sovietism itself. We are where we are. Let’s build a new world together!
…and about 95% of students at Oxford and Cambridge now get either “Firsts” or “2:1” degrees. A First was once a coveted rarity. Now? Bog-standard, really. The holders of such degrees may consider themselves highly-educated, but most are not.
Peter Hitchens’ idea of transport, not very practical. So people wanting to travel across country with, perhaps, children, luggage, whatever, should have to struggle with buses and trains, like Soviet citizens of the 1970s or British citizens of the (?) 1940s? Much easier to load everything into a car.
It is true that there are far too many cars on the roads of the UK, but the answer is a smaller population.
Exactly. When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, heralding the end of old-style socialism across the world (yes, there are a few pathetic pockets such as Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela, all poverty-stricken and absurd), I was discussing the changes with acquaintances. I had just returned to the UK from my latest (and what turned out to be my last) trip to Poland.
The acquaintances just mentioned thought that the political revolution across “the satellites” meant “freedom”. While agreeing up to a point, my view was that the Central and Eastern European peoples involved were swapping one big dictator (socialist government and its ruling party in each country) for a multitude of small dictators (capitalist employers, mainly).
Now we see that both government and those non-governmental foci are oppressing the populations of Europe with a huge weight of, not only laws and taxes, but “rules”, “guidance”, politically-approved nonsense (never criticize Jewish behaviour, the behaviour of blacks or browns, never be “sexist” or “racist” —however defined—, never openly support white European race and culture etc).
The propaganda in favour of racemixing, for example, has become so blatant that even the sleepy public, even a few System MPs, have woken up to it. The white, often blonde, woman, the black “husband” figure, the mixed-race children. Every second or third ad on TV now.
In fact, these days in the UK, people who do “ordinary” crimes generally have to work quite hard to get a custodial sentence. Every day one sees, in the popular prints, defendants effectively let off despite having committed real and serious crimes. I saw two yesterday, just in passing.
One was a woman who had stolen £45,000 from a charity, in breach of trust. Not imprisoned because she had children, and only because she had children! The other was an abusive ex-boyfriend of a young woman, which woman was beaten by said “ex” with a baseball bat, after he had smashed his way into her home. Sentence? Non-custodial.
When it comes to what is (though the System will deny it) “political” crime, such as posting satirical songs about Jews and/or “holocaust” fakery (Alison Chabloz in 2018), putting up white nationalist stickers on lamp-posts (someone in Wales got two-and-a-half years for that a while ago!), making a speech in Whitehall saying that Jews should be expelled from England as they have been in the past (in 2018, Jez Turner of the London Forum got a one-year prison sentence for such a speech), it is a different matter, and the defendant will be lucky to escape custody.
In the USA, almost literal worship of money:
Meanwhile, in the Reich:
For me, perhaps the most distinguishing feature of the German Reich, as compared to both finance-capitalism (the West) and Marxist-Leninist socialism (the East) was that, as soon as National Socialists attained to political power in 1933, the things which had been promised to the German people were delivered, or at least began to be delivered. National Socialism delivered.
Very true. It began decades ago in Hollywood. Films would almost always show the nuclear scientist, the brain surgeon, the head of the CIA etc as a black man (not woman, as yet). The fact that this did not reflect reality in 99.9% of cases was not relevant. As with the huge contemporary campaign, especially in the UK, to show almost every family in TV ads, soaps, dramas etc as mixed-race to some degree, the aim was in fact not to reflect reality, but to create a different reality. Social engineering.
Simplistic, but rather true all the same.
I recall seeing (have not seen it since) the Sunday Times Rich List about 20 years ago. The wealthiest person in the UK was some Ukrainian Jew “worth” several billions. Now, we see that, in the world as a whole, Jeff Bezos of Amazon has assets valued at some £150 billion or more (and that is after his ex-wife got about £50 billions in a divorce settlement).
It goes without saying that anyone with vision could do a great deal with such money. Rewild a huge area. Create cities. Create national parks in poor countries (eg in Africa or Latin America). Establish institutes of advanced learning. And so on. The key words, though, are “with vision“, vision beyond the mercantile. A few very wealthy people have such vision (the obvious historical example is Andrew Carnegie), but most do not.

As usual, “answer came there none”…
Interesting historical document
If I am not mistaken, the person tweeting and writing above has always supported the Zionist attacks on those such as me, Alison Chabloz etc, who are having to struggle for their rights to free speech and freedom of expression.
Can you imagine where Harry would be without his “royal” background (with its support package of money, deferential interviews etc)? Nowhere; he would not even have a job. Oh, no, wait…
As I predicted, he and the Royal Mulatta have ended up where they always were going to end up— in California, grubbing money as part of the Hollywood multikulti pleb-spectacle.
I read, about 40 years ago, that if Etna were to erupt, followed by Vesuvius, it would be a sign that the Earth’s poles were going to shift to new positions, causing disastrous upheaval all over the world. Probably not true…

Can you imagine many parents today allowing their (just, by 2 weeks or so) 13 year old son to get a local bus from the Port Everglades terminal to Fort Lauderdale, then a Greyhound bus to downtown Miami, wander around alone, and trust him to return (to the British ship P & O Oriana), by evening sailing time? I cannot (I am not so sure that I myself would be so trusting or confident, were I in the position that my parents were in 1969, when en passage from Sydney to Southampton).
Having said that, when I raised the point and the memory a few years ago, in relation to my then-young nephew, maybe 14, having to be accompanied when travelling between London and points South West, my mother simply replied “you were a different kettle of fish“…
There is no point trying to debate with a creature of that sort, and it seems that subsidized Channel 4 cut Hitchens’ words anyway. Creatures of that sort are enemies of our European race and culture, despite their being the beneficiaries of it. We need a different type of society…
When I was briefly in Prague in 1988 (en route by car from “the West” to Poland), there were no or almost no tourists, and it was still a socialist-model society. The famous Charles Bridge had only a dozen tourists (if that) on it…in peak summer! My second visit was in the Autumn of 1999, and the ambience of the city had changed out of all recognition. Freer perhaps, more crowded certainly, with innumerable tourists.
Yes, but where were Toby Young, Delingpole, all the “free speech” advocates, when my rights were trashed and I was disbarred for having tweeted five completely true and accurate tweets about Jews, Michael Gove, Sarkozy, David Cameron-Levita etc?
Where were they (and the Daily Mail) then?
Where were they when Alison Chabloz was persecuted and prosecuted for having posted online her satirical songs mocking the “holocaust” hoaxes and fraudsters?
Where were they when Jez Turner of the London Forum was actually imprisoned for having made a humorous speech suggesting that the Jews be expelled from England (again)?
For those hypocrites, “free speech” means “free speech unless you offend the Jews”…
The “Great Reset”…
What’s really going on here?
The Jews, historically, usually attack the host countries in two ways: first, by infiltrating the “upper classes” or rulership elements of the host countries; secondly, by inciting revolt among the lower classes of those host countries.
The pattern is seen in the UK. Wealthy Jews and part-Jews send their children to the most expensive schools, such as Eton, Harrow, St. Paul’s etc, not primarily for the education, but for the social and financial (and political) connections. Then on to Oxford or Cambridge. Examples? David Cameron-Levita, George Osborne, Alexander “Boris” Johnson.
Colonization . In fact, even what passes for “aristocracy” in the UK (mostly traceable only to the 20th or 19th centuries anyway) is thoroughly infiltrated as well. Even the Royal Family is contaminated.
The other side of the coin is the Jewish fomenting of rebellion and revolution, as seen in Marx (Jew), and then Lenin (part-Jew), Trotsky (aka L.D. Bronstein, a Jew), “Kamenev”, “Bukharin”, “Lunacharsky”, and the rest of the leading Bolsheviks and other Marxists.
For this latter aspect of their activity, the revolutionaries need what Lenin called “useful idiots“. Today, that might include “anti-racists”, “antifascists”, “Black Lives Matter” foot-soldiers, “refugees welcome” dimwits , “Extinction Rebellion”/Greta Nut fans and so on. All run by Jewish individuals or groups. “Hope not Hate” and “United Against Fascism” [UAF] as well.

All very true. One might not much like or respect someone such as the part-Jew Zac Goldsmith (not that I have ever met him in person, and I believe that he has genuine environmental interests) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zac_Goldsmith#Early_life], but it cannot be credibly said that he is in politics for the salary, perks and expenses! His inherited hundreds of millions make that not even a question.
There are now 8 billion human or humanoid people on the Earth, twice as many even as compared to 1970. If that 8 billion were to be reduced to 800 million or even 80 million, it would not matter, and for the Earth as “Gaia” would be a lifesaver, so long as all or almost all of the 800 or 80 million left were of basically Northern European descent.
..2 In light of this mayor Khan's latest initiative? The commission for diversity in the public realm. A group of anti-British activists who seek to erase British heritage & culture. London is the capital of England & should be a beacon which reflects that reflects our heritage.
Well, there it is. The emergent (if incompetent) UK police state in action, with even a presently-incumbent elected politician being interfered with by uniformed police as he quietly delivers leaflets in his own constituency re. an upcoming election…You could scarcely have a more blatant example of what is developing in this country.
You only have to look at how the Jews on UK Twitter support any Jewish actor, actress, scribbler, politician etc. They have an ethnocentrism and tribalism which we, the Europeans, simply no longer possess, if we ever did in that sense.
We are not “strangers in a strange land” (though the UK is starting to look and feel that way). This is our land.
I think that I would stack up my reading, travelling etc against 99% of people, and against probably 100% of the “antifascist” idiot mob, and the result is, in part, this blog.
I heard a piece on BBC World Service about “the virus” as it is in Prague and the Czech Republic generally.
Earlier in 2020, the Czech government instituted one of the most severe “lockdowns” (and other measures) in the world. Now? The Czech Republic apparently has the second-highest rate of infections [known] in the world.
Nothing was said of how many people were having to be hospitalized or how many are dying. A temporary large hospital has been constructed, but according to the BBC reporter, the ventilators shown were “wheezing” without patients.
Conclusion? Nothing much from the BBC; from me, the conclusion that testing is up, known infections are up, but —perhaps— the number of actual deaths from the virus is not much —if at all— up. Also, that the severe “lockdown” of earlier this year has not stopped infection but —at most— merely delayed it.
It might have been better to allow infection to proliferate in the Spring and Summer, when hospitals are less busy generally. Same in the UK.
In the UK, the “lockdown” (shutdown of virtually the whole society) was meant to be, or at least presented to the public as, temporary, for a few weeks only, to “flatten the curve” of infection, the numbers hospitalized etc, and so “save the NHS”. In the contemporary phrase, “that went well”…
Here we are 6+ months later and, while the UK death rate (from “the virus” if not from everything else) is now low, technical infection is high and we still have “local” lockdowns amounting to a semi-national lockdown; also of course the intrusive and unnecessary facemask nonsense.
My NWO nose is twitching…both Twitter and the Vaccine Alliance…and major commercial banks. She was also 2-i-c at the World Bank, and worked at the Bank for 25 years. She is on the IMF Board too.
The candidate became a U.S. citizen in 2019.
The “Great Reset”…
The “Red Wall” areas reconsider the future
“Boris Johnson’s pitch to would-be first-time Tory voters in the North of England was threefold: getting Brexit done; “levelling up” the economy; and taking their side on culture war issues against the spectre of the metropolitan, liberal elite.
While the success of the Prime Minister’s Brexit strategy hangs in the balance, those last two aims are in tatters. As constituencies across the North of England suffer soaring infection rates, new restrictions on their civil liberties, and impending economic Armageddon, the bright and optimistic vision of last December lies smouldering in ruins, like the last fags in the gutter outside a shuttered Liverpool pub.” [Standpoint magazine]
A fairly interesting article, but omitting the key fact about the 2019 General Election, which is that the Conservative Party did not win it; Labour lost it. The Conservative Party won only by default. Huge numbers of 2017 Labour voters did not vote Labour in 2019, true…but relatively few of those voted Conservative. More of the 2017 Labour voters did not vote at all in 2019.
If that actually were to take off, the Labour Party would be toast in many constituencies, but the chances are that nothing much will come of it.
Perhaps, but Britain needs an aware white Northern European population, and a citizen and fully-armed militia (under the control of a proper government), far more than a few more ships.
When I was a small child, living in Caversham Heights, on the edge of Reading, where the suburbs of the Berkshire town meet the Oxfordshire woods and fields, my mother would often take me to the public library in Caversham itself, which library was founded by Carnegie, and had a plaque set into the exterior wall to that effect. I have never forgotten that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Carnegie#1901%E2%80%931919:_Philanthropist
The foundation stone was laid in 1905, and the Library opened in 1907.
When I used to go there, aged about 4 or 5 and thereafter, from about 1960, it looked just the same as in the photograph. I recognize that circular leather seat (it was red shiny leather, perhaps very much of its time: see The Maltese Falcon).
When the library opened, in 1907, the whole area of Caversham and beyond, from the north bank of the Thames at Reading, was still part of Oxfordshire. It only became part of Berkshire in 1911.

Even more sinister is the way that this “study”, poorly conceived and carried out, was first published months ago, and is now being pushed again in the msm Lugenpresse (Lie-Press). None dare call it conspiracy…
The only way to stop the slide to tyranny is to directly impact those who have engineered the present Coronavirus toytown police state which is halfway to a real police state. I am talking about Boris-idiot and his cohorts.
More evidence that Labour, though not in the opinion-poll trough it was in when Corbyn was leader [translation: when the entire Jewish-influenced or owned mass media were trashing Labour and Corbyn on a daily basis], has not broken through in terms of public support, despite the manifest incompetence and unpleasantness of the Boris-idiot “Conservative” government.
All Boris-idiot is good for is cracking jokes and playing the public entertainer. Anything else— rubbish.
Well, not so surprising. After all, at least half the American public (and the British public, for that matter), still believe that the German government of the 1940s “gassed” millions of Jews, despite no credible evidence ever having been adduced for that.
The fakery of the “holocaust” farrago since the 1950s has contaminated politics, law, the mass media, and of course modern historical study and authorship; that has been particularly the case since the real TV/Hollywood campaign started in the 1970s: Schindler’s List (1993) and so on. Most people have no idea that that film was an adaptation of a novel by an Australian who was only 3 years old at the start of the Second World War, and only 9 when it finished.
The above tweet (commenting upon another tweet) was tweeted a few days ago by the egregious Jo Maugham, a prolific tweeter who likes to virtue-signal, a pose damaged when it was widely publicized that he had brutally beaten to death a fox.
Maugham, a half-Jew by actual parentage [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolyon_Maugham#Early_life; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Benedictus#Life], and who is a barrister (QC) in the field of tax law, is presumably someone of quite high intelligence, but his pronouncements and judgment calls often show, in my opinion, a lack of commonsense. Not just the fox-killing incident. Maugham was or is a leading supporter of Remain vis a vis the EU; also, if I recall aright, of the doomed joke party, Change UK, which bombed at the European Elections and General Election of 2019. Now look at that tweet featured above.
People protesting against the increasingly totalitarian nature of the (supposedly) anti-“virus” measures taken by a panicked government in the UK, are not “bringing death to the innocent“. Au contraire, the government “lockdowns”, semi-shutdown of the NHS etc are killing far more than the “virus” so many seem to fear.
As to the Extinction Rebellion loonies, if Maugham thinks that their antics will in any way “save the planet from destruction“, he is in a strange part of cloud-cuckoo land (see above for links to my articles about Extinction Rebellion etc).
A different viewpoint to that of Maugham:

I favour Brexit, but this incompetent Jewish/Indian government of clowns, and its predecessors, have badly mishandled everything. Still, it could trigger the biggest upsurge in social nationalism since the 1930s. “Always look on the bright side of Life”…
I can only assume that that tweeter is unaware of my existence…(though I never use “Right”/”Left” terminology).
One sees how the System in the UK used “Tommy Robinson”, the EDL, and the “Football Lads’ Alliance” etc as “controlled opposition”, which meant that instead of something like the above, the UK had pointless marches and brawling by the bottle-throwing dupes of those organizing and those (((behind the scenes))). Result? No threat to the System, and the “protestors”, like their idiotic American counterparts, were even “pro-Israel”. Talk about slaves loving their chains!
I have seen the promised land…
Nazim Ali Tribunal hearing
The latest “Campaign Against Antisemitism (“CAA”) “lawfare” outrage (along with the continuing affaire Chabloz) is the complaint against Nazim Ali, a pharmacist, who made a speech at the Al Quds march in London three years ago, in 2017.
The “CAA” did its usual thing of sneaking around hoping to record something “antisemitic” so that the CAA might complain to the police or to professional regulators.
The case is now before the professional regulatory tribunal for the pharmaceutical profession.
The same thing happened to Jez Turner of London Forum. His speech in Whitehall was overheard by CAA snoop Gideon Falter and/or others. The police and then Crown Prosecution Service [CPS] declined to prosecute, so the CAA used “lawfare”, going to the High Court to have the no-prosecution decision subjected to judicial review. The result was a stalemate, but the Crown Prosecution Service did “reassess” the matter, eventually prosecuting Jez Turner, who was, after a Crown Court trial, eventually sentenced to a year in prison, serving half. A hero.
After my unjust disbarment in October 2016, Falter, the “Director” of the CAA Jew-Zionist pressure group, said to the national Press (Judenpresse…) that my case proved that anyone in a recognized profession who said anything the CAA deemed “antisemitic” would suffer “devastating professional consequences“. Google “Ian Millard barrister” for more.
The Jew-Zionists succeeded in both getting me disbarred in 2016 (though it took nearly three years) and in having me removed from Twitter in 2018. They failed in several attempts to have me arrested and/or prosecuted. They have persecuted me in other ways (eg by having Amazon remove all my book reviews, at which I was a “Top 50” reviewer out of millions). “They” are enemies of European civilization.
I have complained in this blog previously about how poor the BBC World Service now is. It surpassed itself (negatively) last night. First, a report about an Afghan journalist who decided to relocate (illegally) to Europe with his family. Apparently, the family are now in Europe and their favoured destination is now Finland. Supposedly “refugees” but really economic migrants.
Then there was Outlook, once (long ago) an interesting show, but this time we had an interminably long (it seemed; in fact about 30 mins) story about an unfortunate man whose useless mother had given him a whole raft of neuroses.
A report about a Ugandan gospel singer followed. Cue howling. Finally, a report about a Panamanian who makes “artworks” out of plastic bottles.
There were better things, such as a report on Kazakh nomads forced to flee the Soviet Union in the late 1920s, their descendants now stuck in China and subject to anti-Muslim repressions (along with the Uighurs).
Overall, though, the World Service is almost unlistenable now, like Radio 4.
Not sure what Nick Griffin means (I have no idea what The Clash sound like); presumably some call to action directe…
I am not so sure that that would be a complete answer. Most unmarried men (even gays) are not pederasts, and some married men are.
Exactly. Laurence Fox may well be sincere, but that does not prevent him being (((controlled opposition))). cf. UKIP, Brexit Party, Breitbart, Katie Hopkins, “Prison Planet” Watson etc.
I have blogged previously, many times, about the “privatization of public space”; I mentioned it in my talk at the London Forum in 2017 (now also censored…). I may not particularly like Trump, but he is the President of the most powerful state on Earth, and yet even his tweets get censored! This is the problem: that Internet quasi-monopolies are leaving citizens with effectively no rights qua citizen, only bare contractual rights (that amount to nothing).
Peter Hitchens has a point, but it might equally be said that there is far too little anger in British politics. Far too little anger at migration-invasion. Far too little anger at the Jew-Zionist power and influence contaminating both politics and economy. Far too little anger at the war waged on the poor, unemployed and disabled by evil persons such as Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, Esher McVey, the jew “lord” Freud etc since 2010 (though started, quietly, under fake “Labour” from 1997). Far too little anger at the level of poverty and deprivation in the UK. Far too little anger at the sick decadence of the mass media, not least in the BBC.
If one is Peter Hitchens, a semi-approved System scribbler sitting in Oxford, then a degree of ivory tower complacency is, perhaps, the obvious attitude. The same is true of the fake Spectator-type dissidents, the Toby Youngs and Delingpoles. Some of their views are valid, but many not, and they offer no solutions.
For once, Julia Hartley-Brewer has a point. The country has lost its mind (****ing or otherwise): wage slaves in shops becoming harsh-voiced authoritarians acting like sergeant-majors ordering their cadets to adjust their masks! Scared rabbits wearing facemasks even when alone in their cars, or walking in the open air! Same idiots swerving to avoid being within many feet of others (admittedly people have been known to cross the street to avoid me even before “the virus” came to us! I am told that I sometimes walk scowling….when I am in fact just thinking!)…
The “government” of this poor country has certainly lost whatever mind it had. As for the population, many, perhaps half, want more severe measures! Are they the same that will be soon losing their jobs, having to exist on peanuts State benefits, losing their rented or “owned” (on mortgage) homes?
If Boris-idiot has failed to behave, or even look like, a real Prime Minister, then Keir Starmer has likewise failed even in his Opposition role (which he seems unable to understand in the slightest). Muzzled, photographed down on one knee in fealty to the blacks (who themselves are just “useful idiots”), and in thrall to the Jewish lobby and Israel. Starmer is just a useless System drone. Uninteresting. A waste of space.
After a lifetime scribbling for the System Press (Lugenpresse, Judenpresse), Hitchens still is unwilling to see the enormity of what is behind the “panicdemic”: the Great Reset, and the Great Replacement. Google both…
Exactly so. It is not just the “panicdemic”. The importation of blacks and browns and others (and their subsequent breeding) has changed a fairly homogenous society into a multikulti dustbin. The State then has to exert efforts to stay in control.
Tell me that I am wrong…
Happened to see that exchange. It really should no longer shock me that a barrister, and indeed from a set considered to be (and calling itself) “leading”, appears not to know the difference between “disinterested” and (as he obviously means…), “uninterested“. A sign of the times, I suppose…
In a sense, it is incredible how a people as traditionally (though maybe not so much now) educated and intelligent as the Scots can take petty dictator Sturgeon and her unpleasant little SNP pack seriously. I suppose that the blame lies with the (other, older) System parties: “Labour”, “Conservative”, “Liberal Democrat” (all very much misnamed).
The Labour Party lost all credibility in Scotland, finally grinding to a halt under System drone, Jewish lobby mouthpiece (and now Tony Blair-salaried “gopher”), Jim Murphy, a man who spent 13 years as a university student without even getting a degree! Not forgetting Kezia Dugdale, another “never had a job” drone, idiot (and now newspaper-scribbling lesbian).
The Conservative Party is making minor inroads in Scotland by default, i.e. because they are neither Labour nor SNP (nor LibDem), but I cannot see that getting far, bearing in mind the Boris-idiot government in London and the upcoming economic tsunami triggered by government policy around “the virus”, as well as by badly-mishandled Brexit.
The SNP is only “faux”-nationalist, tolerant of mass immigration (perhaps because Scotland has as yet not been affected as much by it as has been England) and very much in the pocket of the Jewish lobby. Indeed, what sort of “Independence” would it be, if Scotland were still in the EU, NATO, and under the international conspiracy-consensus (NWO, ZOG, Bilderberg etc)?
Still, if Scotland wants “Independence”, let it go its own way, by all means. The rest of Britain can then turn to real social-nationalism.
Here is my own assessment, from last year, of Mike Stuchbery: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/. He keeps tweeting that he has been “libelled” by me and various others (including some Danes, apparently), and that he is “keeping track of all the libel“. He often tweets about how anyone exposing him better get good lawyers and/or that he will “clean out” anyone who tweets or writes about him.
Well, here is a piece of totally free legal advice from an ex-barrister: Stuchbery now has exactly 16 days in which he might start legal proceedings against me in libel in relation to my blog post about him. I am not quaking…
I've received a few of these myself. We have not broken any laws other than thinking differently. No other group receives this sort of treatment. Bankers have never been our friend. They've supported/financed revolutions that have led to millions dead. Today they give to blm.
Disgusting. This is how people who tell the truth are treated. Not only are they targeted by the government, media, and marxist groups, but they are strangled by the banks as well. There is so much energy put into silencing those who can debunk the mainstream narratives. https://t.co/6PwKgd2SeZ
I hope that that tweeter, “@DrChrisParry”, knows more about defence than he seems to know about UK strategy more generally. His view seems to be that the UK having a couple of aircraft carriers will push the UK to the top of the tree in terms of world power. Well, the U.S. Navy has 11 aircraft carriers; China has 2 (building another at present, with 6 planned in all); Russia has 2, with 2 more in the pipeline; Italy has 2; France has 1; and so on.
The tweeter noted seems to think that spending money in vast quantities on an aircraft carrier or two will arrest the relative decline of Britain, which has been a fact since 1918 and especially since 1945. This is hardly worth arguing… As for “resisting the power of totalitarian regimes“, the only power constantly intimidating Britain and its corrupt politicians is the USA, our supposed ally… and American military-destructive power dwarfs that of the UK.
Ah, I see that tweeter “@DrChrisParry” does indeed know about defence, at least in its tactical aspects, he having been an admiral and a commander of ships in actual warfare: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Parry_(Royal_Navy_officer). Sadly, it remains true that, just as the environment cannot be left to farmers (because of both self-interest and blinkered viewpoints), defence strategy cannot be left to the generals and admirals, however distinguished.
Oh, the sheer pleasure of being able to slowly advance in that vehicle, watching the horror slowly dawn on the bitch’s face as she realises that she is going down. Would she try to run or jump away in the last split-second, or would she just utter a last scream as the “tank” rolls over her?
That driver is very patient.
Stanley Johnson. Part-Jew, part-Turk, but “sanctified” as a True Blue Brit and “gentleman” by reason of having attended Sherborne School and Oxford…
Blood is destiny. Look at Stanley Johnson’s offspring: Boris-idiot, public entertainer, scribbler of rubbish, and poseur, presently doing a tragi-comic reprise (in miniature) of Winston Churchill; Jo Johnson, politician and former newspaper scribbler specializing in finance; Rachel Johnson, scribbler, editor and TV talking head; Leo Johnson, who is described by Wikipedia as “entrepreneur and film-maker“. Need one say (((more)))?

When I visited the DDR (East Germany) briefly in 1988, the impression I received was that it was more like a stage set of a state than a real one, but I had no idea that, as little as a year or so later, that state would not exist.
Who knows, really, how long any state, even one as longlasting as the UK, will last?
Why did the DDR collapse? Why did the Soviet Union collapse? Many causes, but overall because they decayed internally. That was the number one cause.
Now look at the UK. It may continue for decades, or even centuries. More likely, it will pass into history within a few years from today.
Peter Hitchens still (perhaps) thinks that the UK as a “nation” (no, it is not really a nation any more) exists and that its old and now ramshackle institutions (courts, judges, Parliament, “free” Press, BBC) still have value. “Where are they?“, asks Hitchens, despairingly. They are now but “whited sepulchres”, almost-ruins.
“Stay angry, yet patient“? In Zulu, it was more “stay cool but open fire“.
Once again, a nice, well-behaved, civilized English person who thinks that we need “debate”. I think that we need something quite different (though true facts are always useful).
The “Conservative” Party does hate most of its voters. Look at the Parliamentary Party, the Cabinet, the [person posing as] Prime Minister! What do we see? Jews, Mischlingen, wealthy Indians, token blacks and half-castes like Cleverly. As for the white English and Welsh “Conservative” MPs, most are either greedy speculators like Jacob Rees-Mogg, idiot backwoodsmen in it for the pay and expenses (like Peter Bone), or lobby fodder —and (((lobby))) fodder— without an original thought in all their heads combined.
A few final thoughts for today
Trump: whatever one’s general view of him, he has proven his point. He is 74, overweight, has a poor diet (we are told), has contracted “the virus”, yet has spent only a few days in hospital (and mainly out of his doctors’ caution). His wife, also infected, has just been resting at home.
Conclusion: this is not the plague, most people are not even aware that they have “the virus”; few die from it (in relation to those infected or the population as a whole).
The UK “panicdemic”: the government is simply afraid to tell people “we got it wrong; this is nowhere as bad as we have been saying for 6 months“.
UK finances: now it is becoming clear that either there will be even more public spending cuts, reducing the UK to the backward status of a third-rate power (complete with “diverse” population), or there will have to be steep tax rises for the majority of the population.
A kind of semi-dictatorship, hard to define but somewhere between an oligarchy and what someone wittily termed a “wallygarchy”, is being put into place, not overnight but in Lilliputian steps; many small binding ties. The unnecessary fear the “government of clowns” has injected into the population makes that process much easier…but destroys almost everything else.
TheExtinction Rebellion activities bring matters of free speech to the fore
“What we are facing here are fanatics: members of an apocalyptic, end-times cult. A cult dedicated to immiserating our society and intimidating anybody who stands in their way. It is high time that they were stopped. It is time that the police move in to arrest them and disrupt their activities. It is time for our politicians and public figures to unite in deprecating their actions. And it is time that we unify again around a core principle: that open debate is the best way to have any difficult question out, and that ceding control to radicals of any stripe is not just where debate stops. It is where a free society ends.” [Douglas Murray, Daily Telegraph]
I suppose that Douglas Murray was collecting his money from the Henry Jackson Society or other NWO/ZOG organizations when he might have been defending my free speech rights. On the other hand, Murray would not want his lucrative media career to finish. One word from “them” and it would be the end of Murray as go-to talking head…
I also never saw or heard Douglas Murray defend the free speech rights of Jez Turner (of the now-destroyed London Forum), who was imprisoned for making a speech in Whitehall; or for that matter, those of Alison Chabloz, prosecuted for posting online her satirical songs.
Both Jez Turner and Alison Chabloz were targets of the malicious Jew-Zionist pressure group, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”], as also I was and remain.
The same is true of the Charlie Hebdo events. The System politicians from all over the EU defended the magazine when it attacked Islam and was then attacked by Islamists, but it rarely attacks the Jew-Zionists who more or less rule France now. As for those political drones, they are in the pocket of of the Jewish/Zionist/Israel lobby and try to censor any criticism of Jews or their behaviour.
1000's of people have left their homes and family, travelled 1000's of miles, paid £1000's to people traffickers & risked their lives to live in this supposedly racist country. How does that make sense? https://t.co/8urxxRh7WR
“They” —aka (((they)))— happened to Britain, basically, Monsieur Daubney. “They” are at the root of it all, and it is because would-be politicians from “controlled opposition” fake parties such as UKIP and Brexit Party would not and will not acknowledge the centrality of the European struggle against “them” that we are on the brink of socio-political meltdown.
Lunacy posing as protest
A strange cult posing as the answer to the problems of the world.
Tempus fugit, and similar truisms…I recall seeing, en passant, the now-deceased lady who wrote the first two of those pieces, when I was sitting in the library of the GB-USSR Association in the early 1980s; about 1983.
The GB-USSR Association was a cultural and para-diplomatic organization mainly funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Lubrication for diplomatic/cultural interchange in the Cold War, if you like. A parallel body existed in Moscow.
The London HQ of the UK body had a rather nice set-up in Grosvenor Place, overlooking the gardens of Buckingham Palace. It had a Director (a rather unwelcoming fellow called John Roberts, I think about 50 or so, who had fluent Russian, learned in the 1950s during National Service and at Cambridge, where he was sent during part of his service), and two full-time librarians (paid Civil Service rates). I believe that I heard at some much later time that the younger of the two librarians eventually, in the 1990s, became the main librarian at the new, and now famous, Thames-side HQ of SIS/MI6. Perhaps.
The said Roberts was very well-connected and, in those days when your “occupation” had to be written in your passport (based on what the applicant wrote on the application form), had —I heard on good authority— “Diplomat” written in his passport, even though he was not one, at least in the accepted sense. In those days, I had a far less plausible occupation written in my own passport.
The GB-USSR had a good library which I often used, and it put on interesting occasional talks, though I missed the best of the lot (I was told), which was given by “John le Carre” (David Cornwell) one evening.
I remember a very attractive tall blonde woman who looked about 29 (if that) coming in with at least two and maybe three small dogs on leads, and going into the office of the Director. I later discovered that that was his new wife. I was unaware until yesterday that she was at the time already about 40.
In the TV series, the main character, Magnus Pym, is brilliantly played (as adult) by Peter Egan; the wife of the SIS officer in Switzerland was, I think, one Felicity, played by actress Fiona Mollison.
Now that the GB-USSR lady is deceased (as is Roberts, her husband), I can say without seeming too rude that the intervening years were not kind to her (the same might be said of many of us!), looking at the photos. To be frank, I should not have recognized her from the photos I have just seen in the past day. There again, few would recognize me from the photograph of me aged 35…
I was struck some time ago by the changes seen a few years ago, in a BBC provincial news report and on a website, about people I met when volunteering on an organic farm in Wales about 40 years ago. The farmer was still recognizable, but his wife, whom I recall as a pretty sexy and shapely lady of about 35 (albeit very moody, to the point of being a real pain in the neck), was now almost spherical, in fact like a snowman without the snow: a small sphere sitting atop a large sphere.
These apparently random thoughts and reminiscences are in fact just my way of underlining how transitory is our time on this Earth in any one incarnation. We must do what we can to create a current of positive effect which will influence the course of history.
Above, a typical example of nice, polite, English protest…Write to “your” MP, ask for an explanation as to why…blah blah blah. I have a different view of what should be done, but if I blog about it here, I shall probably have the toytown police and the poundland KGB here tomorrow morning…
“Drongoes“! I have not heard that term of opprobrium since I was 12 and a child in an Australian school!
Jew lawyer found guilty of inventing “antisemitic” attack
In reality, a black or even mixed population will never be able to enslave even a far smaller-in-number European/”white” population; the whites will either triumph over the blacks and rule them, or leave to be rid of the blacks and their inability to maintain a civilized society (in the absence of white skills and thinking patterns…), as has largely happened in South Africa: even the craven whites who opposed apartheid and emigrated have no wish to return to be ruled by the increasingly anti-white blacks in a society where whites are increasingly seen as enemies and, indeed, prey.
How come we simultaneously demand integration yet allow (non white) people to celebrate their culture and identity? https://t.co/XMsngHmFFp
Below, a photograph of wha is said to be the same Jew (presumably recently), toting what looks superficially like a silenced submachinegun, but which is in fact (I think) an “airsoft gun” used in games: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airsoft_gun
What made me laugh about that Jewish Chronicle piece was that the other Jew mentioned, a business operator, was driven out of the UK, it seems; at any rate, he left…
Indeed. British diplomats are fond of talking about free speech in other countries, while forgetting the constraints that now exist in the UK: Alison Chabloz, persecuted and prosecuted for posting satirical songs about Jews (particularly “holocaust” frauds) online; Jez Turner, imprisoned for making a speech in Whitehall; Ian Millard (me), disbarred at the behest of a pack of Jews for 5 tweets about politicians and events.
One diplomat unlikely to make that mistake is Rowan Laxton [https://www.gov.uk/government/people/rowan-james-laxton–2], who successfully appealed his conviction for shouting about the evils of Jews and Israel. The judge who heard the appeal disbelieved the only prosecution witness, Gideon Falter of the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”]. Falter’s testimony has proven contentious in other cases since then.
Laxton was reinstated at the Foreign Office and is now High Commissioner in Cameroon (though note his postings: Cameroon, Somalia etc, not Moscow, Paris, Washington…).
Why is it that only now is the consensus shifting, so that it is generally obvious that Boris Johnson is simply out of his depth as PM? I have been blogging since I started in 2016 about his unfitness for public office,and was tweeting the same for years before that. Those who had known and/or employed Boris-idiot were saying the same or similar, yet the msm has been promoting Johnson for nearly 20 years. He is of course part-Jew, and pro-Israel. I suppose that the answer lies there.
As Israeli Embassy official Shai Masot said, when being secretly filmed, “Boris is good…he is solid on Israel. He’s an idiot…[…of course, but suits the Israel/Jewish agenda]”:
Import Indians, Pakistanis, Africans, and you get Indian, Pakistani or African politics and corruption in our British politics. Simple as that.
The same is true of the economy (see below)
What a shock. People are reconsidering whether a cup of sugar-loaded weak coffee is really worth several pounds out of what, for many, is a pretty low disposable income.
Britain should have joined with the German Reich to rule most of the world. Second-best option: stay out of the conflicts in Europe and not declare war on Germany (81 years ago, on 3 September 1939). Once that disastrous war had started, it should have been halted by honourable armistice after Dunkirk, in mid-1940.
Get the picture? Huge amount of recent testing for “Coronavirus”, huge increase in people found to be infected, but virtually no deaths from it, because most people tested have few if any symptoms, and are in no real danger from it. The same is true of anyone they might infect.
The most invidious fact of all in that regard is that not only does Britain have a government of dictatorial clowns but also an Opposition consisting of those whose policies are in most respects identical. A non-Opposition.
Click on that to read the whole thread. Not just an amazing story but disturbing. The police, who have recently had so much time to swagger around bullying the public, checking on what people are saying on Twitter and Facebook, simply could not be bothered to make a couple of telephone calls to give a person in need of immediate real help.
Incidentally, I thought (assumed) that the above happened in the UK. Apparently not. Texas. Still noteworthy.
The vast majority of jews consider the holocaust essential to their identity. Do you see it yet?https://t.co/2V55Iee1Dq
The “holocaust” narrative is the binding thread which has created a false sense of identity and nationhood out of disparate elements.
Prime Minister’s Questions
I heard only the Radio 4 highlights of PMQs. Disastrous for Boris-idiot. Keir Starmer might be in the pocket of the Israel lobby, but in terms of domestic policy he is “mainstream”. For Boris-idiot to accuse a former Director of Public Prosecutions of being a sympathizer or apologist for the IRA (by proxy, because Corbyn was Labour leader for 4 years) is just absurd. Not even Oxford Union level. Eton College debating society, maybe.
The problem the British electorate faces at present runs parallel to that pertaining to the USA: a false choice between unworthy candidates.
Having said that, even were Keir Starmer brilliant, he would be no nearer office. On paper, Boris-idiot is there maybe until as late as November 2024.
I predicted after the 2019 General Election that any real or serious opposition to this government would have to come from within the ranks of Conservative MPs themselves, given the 80-seat majority.
I also made the point that there was a false question being asked during the 2019 campaign. Many were writing in the msm, “Boris has the ability to be PM, but does he have the principles?“, to which my answer was “when has Boris proven that he has the ability?“, but answer came there none…
Now the Conservative Party MPs, pro-Conservative newspapers and websites etc are having to wake up to the fact that they have promoted and puffed a total clown as “Prime Minister in Waiting”, in some cases for 20+ years.
Well, they put him there, and there he sits, incapable of doing anything effectively, having shut down the economy and society, listened to idiots like Professor Ferguson (he of the “800,000 Coronavirus deaths” prediction). Soon there will be millions of unemployed wanting solutions.
“Boris” and his record: Economy and society shut down for about 6 months. Ludicrous facemask policy adopted. Absurd local “lockdowns” implemented. Migration invasion worse than ever (over 400 yesterday alone, and that’s only on the beaches; what about all the others?). Unemployment soaring. DWP and HMRC even less efficient. Nothing done to stamp out exploitation by (((predators))) such as Philip Green.

Encourage the bitch. Maybe a few more white people will awaken to the menace that is expanding all over Europe but especially right here in the UK.
Black Lives Matter supporters vandalise the home of the Mayor of San Jose – this is what the media call 'a peaceful protest'.
If patriots behaved like this there would be national outrage.
Took a look at the statistics for 2020. So far, tens of thousands of hits from nearly 10,000 individuals. With four full months to go until the end of the year, the number of hits already exceeds the figure for 2019 by about 7%, but the best aspect is that the number of individuals has jumped by 25%. It will be interesting to see the final figures for this year.
The number of “likes” from other WordPress users is also up, but few are ever given (on anyone’s blog) anyway. I had to laugh at the number (as of today) though: 88! True… Is it synchronicity?
Most readers of blogs do not belong to the platform, whether WordPress or other, so the number of “likes” means little. Most blogs get only a few in any given month. Likewise with comments. WordPress blogs are not like social media accounts such as Twitter.
Why does one bother? It is a way of influencing society, even if in a very small way; on the other hand, “one human soul is a big audience“, which I always think was said either by St. Thomas Aquinas or St. Dominic, or maybe even St. Augustine of Hippo, but in fact I have never been able to find the citation.
Who knows who might read my blog and be influenced by it? The next young Alexander? Perhaps a young reader who, after I leave this Earth in my present incarnation, will create the new civilization which I myself, at least so far, have been unable to bring to life and power.
A few “thoughts out of season”
I am 64 years of age in a few days’ time, though I do not —usually!— feel it. Two years until I am 66, in 2022. 2022 can be expressed as a 6 (2+0+2+2), and (by one system of numerology) the number of my name (Ian Robert Millard) is 666, though I should add that I am scarcely a —let alone the—“Beast”!
Like “the stars in their courses“, I “fight on the side of the just” (an ancient Chinese saying).
2022 is the next world-historic year. The last, 33 years before 2022, was 1989, the key year in the collapse of socialism across the world. Socialism did not collapse in one year alone, of course. It had been slowly dying for decades, indeed since the previous year in that 33-year cycle, meaning 1956 (also the year of my own birth).
When I say “socialism” here, I refer to all post-1945 varieties, from the kind of social democratic idea seen in postwar UK, Sweden, New Zealand etc through to the extreme versions seen in the Soviet Union, China, Albania etc. True, China still has and is ruled by the Communist Party, but that party rules over a society completely capitalist. Yes, there are a few unimportant remnants of ruined socialism here and there: Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela (which only became notionally socialist in the 1990s, though there were socialistic elements in Venezuelan society in the 1950s and 1960s). The point is that these countries are exceptions, and poverty-stricken exceptions. The mainstream of the world has moved on from old-style socialism.
After 1989, the Soviet Union ceased to exist as a socialist state, though the Soviet Union continued in name until 1991.
After 1989 and the —superficially— unsuccessful Tiananmen Square protest, “socialism” became a figleaf covering only, just like “aristocracy” has been for a long time in UK society. Deng Xiaoping had said that no-one cared what colour was a cat, so long as it catches mice. That was why socialism had to be superseded, because as an economic model it “does not work”.
In the UK, the social democratic idea was fully espoused after the Second World War, certainly from 1956, by all three “main parties” (the two real main parties —Conservative and Labour— and the joke Liberal Party). That consensus (“democratic socialist” Labour, in existence in essence since the late 19thC, and “One Nation” Conservatism, also deriving originally from the late 19thC and Disraeli) broke down in the 1980s.
In the 1990s, the “Conservatives” travelled to a more finance-capitalist, anti-Welfare State position. “Labour” dropped “Clause 4” (which notionally committed the party to widespread nationalization —socialization— of the economy). Within a few years, after 1997, Labour had become completely “cosmopolitan finance-capitalist” under Tony Blair and the Jew Mandelson, who declared that he was “intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich“.
While the Jew Mandelson held secret meetings with Rothschilds and “Russian” Jew oligarchs in Corfu villas and elsewhere, Attlee and Bevan rotated in their graves, and the remaining “socialist” element in Labour seethed, led by the dissident MP, Jeremy Corbyn.
Despite much talk, the “socialist” Labour element under Corbyn and, before that, Ed Miliband, was unable to struggle successfully against the Zeitgeist. The General Elections of 2015, 2017 and 2019 proved that old-style socialism is dead. That despite public disquiet at the weakening and partial dismantling of the “Welfare State”, mainly under the Conservative Party governments since 2010.
In fact, that weakening of the UK “Welfare State”, though intensified after 2010, had started long before, and was in evidence during the Blair-Brown years 1997-2010. For example, the disgraceful ATOS organization was given its first contracts not by the Conservative Party governments (2010, 2015, 2017 and 2019), but by the Labour governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown (1997, 2001, 2005, 2007): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atos#Atos_Healthcare.
People in the UK tend to think that policy is made by individual governments, when in fact there has always been a “deep state” element underneath, carried on in secret, or in semi-secrecy. The influence of, inter alia, freemasonry, Common Purpose, the Jew-Zionist element, the Bilderberg element etc are all part of that. Look at Welfare State policy since, say, 1997. There have been differences between and within parties, but the main themes continued beneath the surface chatter.
As we move to the next significant year, 2022, we see that neither old-style socialism/social democracy nor finance-capitalism satisfies the needs of the people. A new movement is required, both in the sense of a “party” or political organization, and in the sense of a movement in and of society.”
“For the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].
Time moves on
I found this graphic from 2018, not seen for quite a while. It was produced by the Jew-Zionist (and misnamed) “Hope Not Hate” crowd. It shows those who met (in my case, once, at a clifftop cafe, because someone thought reliable had asked me) a young Swede whose real name is said to be Patrik Hermansson, and who posed in 2017 as a Swedish student called Erik Hellberg. Personally, I think that “The Rat” suits him better, but that’s just me…
It will be noted that I was placed, as if a denizen of a contemporary “Inferno“, in the circle of the “holocaust” “deniers” [bottom right of the graphic].
I tend to be rather anti-social both in the ordinary meaning and politically. I do not mix much, in fact scarcely at all. For all that, I can see that political life has moved on in the intervening <2 years.
Some people have become more prominent (Alison Chabloz for one), others have retreated from the limelight: Jez Turner, Stead Steadman, Colin Robertson (“Millennial Woes”) etc. The London Forum is inactive. The “alt-Right” in the USA (as far as I can tell —I do not keep up with all that in detail) has developed a sharper edge, it seems.
The graphic does not of course purport to be a comprehensive map of the “nationalist” side of UK/US politics. As for the work of “The Rat”, he was wasting his time. His paymasters at “Hope Not Hate” eventually produced a film, but it sank like a stone. I think (not sure) that it did get a screening on Channel 4 or Channel 5 around midnight one evening, and the same in Belgium and Sweden. I myself cannot recall seeing it.
The most interesting aspect of that graphic is what is not there: “lone wolves” in the UK and elsewhere, German rural-sanctuary nationalists and national socialists, those setting up a mini-ethnostate in the Pacific North West of the USA etc.
In fact, the behaviour of the pseudo-socialists and “antifa” idiots really highlights the sheer bankruptcy of their socio-political position or stance. They beg to be masked, muzzled, controlled, restricted by the State. They have nothing at all to offer in terms of policy or a way forward for society.
You see the same phenomena in the UK, the “anti-racist” and “antifa” types whose life revolves around trolling people on Twitter, saying negative things about those they deem “fascist” or “neo-Nazi” etc. They know nothing, have no real ideology, and put forward no programme of their own. Politically irrelevant.
…and look [below] at these idiots, sitting talking while wearing facemask muzzles! Complete idiots. This really is a ******* farce, but most people are too polite or too compliant or too brainwashed to say anything!
Listened to BBC Radio 4 Profile about Dido Harding: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dido_Harding. Sounds like she is the sort of person who gets into highly paid positions (eg at Talk Talk, where she was paid millions for failure) because of whom she knows rather than what she knows (or does). A modified and female example of the Peter Principle [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_principle], except that she has been appointed to her present position having serially failed in others. Pathetic country, pathetic government.
The fat man in his muzzle is [update: tweet gone] typical of the aggressive and/or mentally-disturbed facemask zealots who have been emboldened by the ludicrous fake “law” being misused by Boris-idiot, little Matt Hancock, Cressida Dick etc.
Below, “antifa” gassed! I’m lovin’ it (even though I think that Trump is completely unfit for public office)!
Hitchens is right as far as he goes, but fails, once again, to point out that Boris-idiot’s most significant characteristics come not from his few years at Eton (or Oxford) but from the fact that he is part-Jew, part-Turk/Levantine, born in New York City, brought up as child in Washington DC, New York and in Brussels. He is at least half-foreign, in short. Of course “Boris” is not really English in attitude, because he is not really English!
It's not 'paying for the virus'. It's paying for the lockdown policies that many of us never wanted, agreed to, or believed were necessary.
Most NHS doctors are saying nothing because, quite simply, just as Aneurin Bevan said that he had overcome the opposition of the BMA and doctors to the establishment of the NHS by “stuffing their mouths with gold” (relatively high salaries and the chance to do private work on the side etc), Boris-idiot and little Matt Hancock have stuffed the mouth of today’s NHS doctors with more gold, via immediate 4.5% pay rises for less work done…
Hitchens may or may not be aware of it, but Americans have always treated their prisoners, especially political prisoners and/or prisoners of war, very badly. Those suspected of being involved in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln were kept muzzled and with hoods over their heads for months in some cases.
Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, who was briefly touted as a future UK Prime Minister when he started throwing money around to ameliorate the effects of his own government’s policies, established the “eat out to help out” programme. 50% off, up to £10 a head, I believe. Well, I just heard anecdotal evidence:
A lady I know went to a seaside cafe/restaurant one morning recently. Her purchase was modest, a single cup of coffee. When she went to pay (£2.20), she was told that she only had to pay £1.10 because of that scheme. A woman also waiting to pay then chimed in to the effect that her family now dined out three times a week because it made eating out almost as cheap as eating in.
Well, that lady whose family use restaurants three times a week and get a discount for it may enjoy the scheme, but the whole thing is being paid for by the public as a whole; by the poor too, who may not pay much in income tax but who certainly pay VAT and, if employed, National Insurance.
Why should the people as a whole pay to subsidize the cafe visits and restaurant excursions of the rich, the affluent and the comfortably-off? Like so many government policies now, there is just no logic and no justice behind it.
A very striking piece of architecture, quite exciting, and I do not hate it as much as tweeter “Western Traditionalist”, but I hear what he (or she) says. It is a symptom of cultural decadence, for sure.
As for the “architecture” below, that really is just disgusting, and should be demolished or destroyed.
Presumably a representation of some organ of the human body (?), or maybe some sea-creature, plonked down in the midst of what seems to be a town in Southern Germany:
