Yes. It is in a sense amazing that people cannot see that two superficially-similar schools in two very different neighbourhoods will attract very different intakes. Not only in the UK, but anywhere.

In Paris, it would be idle to suggest that the lycees around the 15th and 16th arrondisements, eg those near to the Bir-Hakeim metro, are equivalent to those in poor suburbs many miles away. Likewise in Moscow. Even under Stalin, the “Kremlin Kids” and lesser-known, but still privileged, jeunesse-dorees went to schools far better than those far away from the central areas of the city. Selection by post-code, if you like.

That supreme humbug, Wedgwood-Benn [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Benn] sent his children to comprehensive school [eg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilary_Benn], but again it would be idle to think that going to Holland Park [comprehensive] School [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holland_Park_School] is the same as going to Broken-Society East London Comp…

It is easier to re-engineer society on paper than it is to do it on the ground. I recall some people known to a friend of mine in the 1980s, who were extremely wealthy by some means or other (I think inheritance), and who were “socialists” of some sort. Labour Party members, I think. They loved the fact that they lived in some ghastly part of Southwark (South London) and so, apparently, were able to tell people that; in fact their home was a beautiful house in a similar street —I went there once— but untouched (unlike most of the area) by WW2 Luftwaffe bombing or (far more destructive) postwar redevelopment.

The family in question had three young children, and to that end employed three nannies, who lived in the large basement of the house, which I think had 4 floors. At weekends, the children were left in the care of the nannies while the parents flew to Scotland for house parties or even just for lunch. On paper? Presumably, “socialists and Labour Party members”, who “lived in South London”, “with their three children”.

In the pre-WW2 period, hypocrisy was thought more common in the Conservative Party, but Labour soon caught up. Now, I should say that there is not much to choose.

I prefer outright Conservatives, or real socialist ideologues, usually, to the sort of self-deluding hypocrites often seen around today.

Pathetic.

Exactly right. For British people though, not unwanted interlopers, whether they be economic migrants, “refugees”, or migrant-invaders of whatever other stripe.

Majority of French voters AGREE with generals who threatened a coup if Macron cannot stop ‘Islamists from disintegrating society’ – after 18 officers were fired over letter.” [Daily Mail] https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9529841/Majority-French-voters-AGREE-military-chiefs-threaten.html.

When “democracy”, in the sense that we know it in Western and Central Europe, fails to do the job, the people start to look elsewhere. It is already happening all over Europe, even if so far only in the negative sense, i.e. apathy at elections.

I blogged in some detail about NWO/ZOG puppet Macron a couple of years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/09/on-recent-events-in-france/.

France has several problems of significance, but the two of greatest importance and urgency are

  1. the black/brown/Islamic population, which is something like a quarter of the whole population now, and increasing fast via both migration-invasion and a high birth-rate; and
  2. the Jewish population, which is the largest by far in any European state, and has a stranglehold over many areas of French life, mainly in Paris itself.

Their grandfathers rode camels (if they could afford them), and their grandsons (if they survive) will pull our chariots.

Communism“? Socialism, surely? I thought that Hitchens was once a Marxist (Trotskyist)?

“From the sublime to the ridiculous”, 1960s Prime Minister Harold Wilson almost invariably smoked a pipe in public to show that he was one of “the people”, whereas in fact he preferred cigars (Havanas), not a very “proletarian” choice (even in Cuba).

[Prime Minister of the UK, Harold Wilson, 1966, at Hugh Town, St. Mary’s, Isles of Scilly, with me (aged 9, or just 10, on far left of photo), brothers, and bodyguard (almost out of shot, far right)]

Unwilling to register with the Independent, I cannot read that article, but the conclusion seems (based on the quoted remark) to be right. Starmer, the Jewish Lobby puppet, is (as I predicted from the start) hopeless and as dull as ditchwater, but he is no more “the problem” for Labour than was the rather different Corbyn.

Labour’s problem is that there is no longer a “proletariat” or (in the old sense) a “working class”, there is no more a bloc “Labour vote”, there are no more, or very few, “working class communities”, as such, no nationalized industries of any size, and no great loyalty to Labour, even in its traditional North and North-East heartlands.

The Labour Party itself has changed out of all recognition since its highest point of popularity in 1945. From being a largely socialist party, it moved to social-democracy and then, arguably, in the 1990s under Blair, ditched even that. It became really just a label (or as the egregious waste of space, freeloader, and careerist, Jess Phillips MP, put it, “just a ****ing rose“). Rather like those Latin American countries where the almost-identical parties distinguish themselves by colour: the Blancos v. the Colorados. Like football teams, or the racing silks in the Hippodrome at Byzantium.

It is hard to see now for what the Labour Party stands. Starmer seems to be saying that he supports almost all of what Boris-Idiot’s maladministration does, but that “Boris” should do it better!

In fact I saw a satirical comment to the effect that, were the “Conservative” misgovernment to reintroduce workhouses, Labour under Starmer would agree, but cavil that that should be done more efficiently and slightly more humanely! A joke? Yes, sort-of…but then look at the attack on the unemployed, disabled etc over the past 15-20 years. Which party really started that? Labour…Yes, the “Conservative” Jew-lobby regime of David Cameron-Levita made it worse, but all that nonsense started under Gordon Brown and his lunatic misgovernment, via Alastair Darling, Stephen Timms etc. They, not the Conservatives, brought in the crazily dysfunctional —and also dishonest— ATOS carpetbaggers, for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Work_Capability_Assessment#History.

As I have often said, Labour is now basically the party of the blacks and browns and/or public service workers, which is why Labour eulogizes the NHS constantly (though the NHS is a very hit-and-miss service overall).

Really, one has to ask (again), “what (and who) is Labour for?”

I imagine that the victor in the upcoming local elections will be apathy, with few people turning out to vote.

This is the moment when a social-national party might make hay. If a social-national party actually existed. A real one, I mean, not the joke ones presently around.

Well, this week I did no better than John Rentoul; we both scored only 4/10 (though if I were to follow Rentoul’s usual practice, I could award myself an extra half-point for knowing that Father Ted was set on an Irish island, though I did not know its name). I had no idea as to questions 1, 2, 7, 8, and 10.

Shchi [щи], or Russian cabbage soup, is one of those things that can be either very pleasant or not very pleasant, other examples being borshch [борщ](beetroot soup), kvass [квас](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kvass) etc.

I suppose it is true of some British foods too. In the end, it is, of course, a question of taste. De gustibus non est disputandum. I like oysters; many do not. I like caviar (when afforded); many do not. I like (boiled and then fried) buckwheat kasha (probably because I ate it daily at one time, long ago); many do not, and think such a choice very odd indeed.

I have no particular animus against Boris-Idiot’s latest “ho” (to use the amusing American black term), but it is scandalous if (and it seems that) the woman has any but purely peripheral and personal influence on national affairs. After all, with the best will in the world, she got to her present position of influence on her back, to put it perhaps slightly crudely and…well, let’s leave that there! Suffice to say that she has never been elected, or even appointed, to any position of significance (and, no, I do not regard her unsuccessful period pumping out propaganda for Conservative Party HQ as that).

The woman likes animals, we are told. I approve heartily of that; and if (as it seems from what I have seen in photos) she has no taste, or employs an expensive interior decorator who has no taste, well…that is the way of the world. If her refurbishment at Downing Street is more “nouveau” than simply new, well…again…these things happen.

I should not like to tar Carrie Symonds with the brush justly censuring Boris-Idiot, but that immunity disappears if, as often claimed, she is interfering with, or even deciding, policy.

Not for nothing was the milieu of the 1930s though to the 1950s called “The Climate of Treason“, in the title of yet another book on the Philby matter, that one by Andrew Boyle.

However, that was a milieu inside a milieu. I once knew someone, father of a girlfriend, who pretended to be aggrieved that, when he was at Cambridge in the 1930s, he was “approached” neither by Soviet nor British recruiters! He attributed it to the fact that he read Engineering rather than whatever else, but I think that the fact is that intelligence recruitment probably passed most undergraduates by…

I daresay that, for most undergrads in the Cambridge of the 1920s and 1930s, life was not hugely different than it would have been in the late Victorian era.

As to Philby and his small group of fellow Marxist-Leninist zealots, there has grown up an idea that they were symptomatic of a decadent “ruling class”. In some sense, perhaps, but while certainly socially, or in privilege, far above the mass of the population, Philby and his lot (Maclean, Burgess etc) were really middle-class careerists.

I suppose that the myth has grown up because they all (even Cairncross) attended fee-paying schools; Philby was at Westminster. These were, though, not aristocrats or very (or at all) wealthy, and Philby was actually part-Indian, a fact which is rather glossed over even today.

The idea that Philby’s “treason” was of huge importance has, in a sense, been to the advantage of the British intelligence people. After all, if his behaviour was of no great importance in the big scheme of things, then the work of SIS and MI5 would also have to be assessed accordingly…

Exactly right. “Covid” zealotry, and facemask nonsense fanaticism, have parted company with any reality now. We are in a situation where “the virus” has supposedly killed (in the UK), about 1 in every thousand people (in the world generally, it is about 1 in every 4,000 people). Serious, unpleasant, but not the plague, and no reason to shut down society and economy.

I say “supposedly” killed because in fact most of those people were really killed by other conditions suffered from at the same time.

[Chopin Memorial, Lazienki Park, Warsaw, last seen by me in 1988]
[Lazienki Park, Warsaw]

Memory Lane triggered

More memories were triggered when I saw that my one-time home, a house of which I had a lease in the years 2002-2004, has come up for sale for the first time in 55 years: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/105899483#/

I suppose that I could buy it, and its surrounding small estate, were I not short of about £7 million!

I have to say that the estate agents have had the place photographed beautifully:

Funny to think that my present humble home would fit twice, I suppose, maybe even thrice, into the ballroom alone.

Looking idly at the estate agents’particulars, it is clear that there have been changes since I lived there. For one thing, even the main house has been split into no less than 17 flats! I see, also, that two wind turbines now exist somewhere beyond sight of the house.

106 acres. My own lease included only the main house, with 4 acres of gardens, ornamental ponds and Victorian grottoes.

The person who owns or owned the house (he may have died, I have no idea) was the son of the farmer who bought it in 1966 for the land; the farming family never lived there but built a modern house halfway down the mile-long drive (I think that at that time far more land surrounded the house, and I was told that, in its pre-First World War heyday, there was an estate of 5,000 acres. Maybe.

I was told that the sale price in 1965 was £65,000…The person who owned the house when I lived there was a bit of a scoundrel, locally notorious. His idea (I heard) after my time there ended, was to maximize revenue via splitting up the main house into different rented units. There were already “hippies” living in the stables when I was there.

The man who owned the house prior to 1966 was an apparently very nice man called Leslie Major, whose father had owned the house before him, and who also owned the mill at Lifton, Devon (a few miles away across the Tamar), which is still a food plant, now owned by Purina.

Mr. Major founded the Devon Bird-Watching and Preservation Society, and wrote on daffodil growing. In the 1930s, he also raced cars.

Sadly, Mr. Major became financially distressed, and sold the house and park to the farming family mentioned (the Tucker family) in 1966, and they were out of place in such a setting: see https://www.scribd.com/document/132741300/Daffodil-Cultivation-in-Cornwall-and-Isles-of-Scilly-Leslie-Major.

I could write a possibly amusing memoir of my time there. Such as? Well, such as the time that it turned out that the “hippies” from the old stables were running a cannabis farm in the attics and, to disguise any interest by the authorities in the electricity used to keep the temperature high, had put an enormous tropical snake in there!

I was told that by the owner one day, after he discovered the “farm” and told them to get rid of the lot (cannabis plantation and snake!). He was a scoundrel of sorts, but more someone who sailed close to the wind rather than an out-and-out villain, and pleasant enough to talk to. A rural Arthur Daley, if you like.

In fact, long after I left, the hippies or others tried it again, as I read in an online local newspaper, I think around 2010. The police raided it and made arrests, apparently…

In fact, I heard that some “businessman” (who turned out to be a drug dealer) took on the lease, or rented the house, some time after I left. His dead body was found in the drawing room, or so I heard. For the full Agatha Christie effect, it should have been the Library, though!

[the Library when I had the lease of the house; some of my books]
[Library cat…]

It was rather a magical place all the same (and haunted: my wife saw the ghost once or twice, or at least one ghost, I think the young girl noted in this local history: https://www.scribd.com/document/132741300/Daffodil-Cultivation-in-Cornwall-and-Isles-of-Scilly-Leslie-Major).

I imagine that it will be hard to sell (except to someone wanting the revenue stream from rentals of the various houses, cottages and flats). To reconvert the main house would, I am guessing, be rather expensive.

I shall buy a Euromillions ticket. Who knows?…

A big step forward for Spain.

At one time, in the UK, there were real journalists. They had opinions. They sometimes expressed them. They still, however, reported the news. Now? Politically-correct semi-literates and/or Jewish Zionists. There are a few exceptions (mostly sidelined or not much broadcast or printed). The others form a kind of ZOG-oriented cabal, which does not just include political journalists (most of them), but extends more widely, even beyond the news media, to the wider msm: commentators, even comedians and TV presenters. A corrupt, decadent, and largely self-serving cabal who work to a spoken or unspoken agenda.

Someone should tell, or whisper, that to the “Black Lives Matter” (nonsense) people.

The closure of the majority of the UK’s railway system was indeed scandalous. Beeching and Marples were and remain the obvious villains, but there were widespread closures even before that, both from 1945-1965 and in the interwar period 1918-1939. Indeed, railways were closed even before the First World War. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeching_cuts.

In the United States, the decision was made to keep the tracks even where railways were closed. A strategic defence decision. How much better off would Britain have been had it too done that! New, high-tech rail (ultralight, robotic etc) might have used the same track, or relaid track. Instead, rail lines were taken up and the land, in many cases, built upon.

Interesting article

“Now free us from this crazy dogma: It is high time the Prime Minister allowed the country to begin the long process of recovery from a disaster which his policies are needlessly prolonging, writes Professor ANGUS DALGLEISH” [Daily Mail] https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9510619/ANGUS-DALGLEISH-free-crazy-dogma.html

“Data not dates, the Prime Minister famously said when he announced our ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown. It turns out that there was no road out and no map.

In truth, Government policy is now being driven by nothing more sophisticated than a deranged dogma.

It is dogma of the worst sort, for it is shaped by political cowardice and burnished by discredited scientific advisers who no longer seem capable of reviewing the evidence in front of them.” [Daily Mail]

Boris Idiot

I wrote, before “Boris” was “elected” as Conservative Party leader, that it really did not matter what unpleasant acts emerged about him. He was already known to be a moneygrubber, an incompetent, a constant liar, completely unable to actually run anything, as well as being part-Jew, part-Turk, and rather nasty altogether. So what new scandal could destabilize him?

“Boris” had (and has) weaponized his incompetence and lack of ability. No-one really expects even basic decency from him, let alone integrity, still less the ability to properly fulfil his office. That lack of any public expectation is like a suit of armour for him.

In any case, the Labour Party is now considered so useless by the white British that nothing short of a “nuclear”-level scandal would push them beyond the Conservative Party. Is the present kefuffle that? Probably not.

The Keys of the Kingdom

Saw a fine old film called The Keys of the Kingdom [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Keys_of_the_Kingdom_(film)]. Based on a book by the arguably now-almost-forgotten A.J. Cronin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A._J._Cronin], one of those writers who, while bestselling authors in their day, are later rather neglected. I suppose that Edgar Wallace was another example; he sold 50 million copies of his many works: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_Wallace.

Watching The Keys of the Kingdom, it again occurred to me how many deeply Christian films were made by Hollywood in its days of greatness, despite the fact that all or almost all studios were owned by Jews. Ben Hur would be just one other example, others yet being Quo Vadis, The Robe, etc.

Today, it is different. Film studios are now usually not only owned by Jews, but the films often directed by Jews, and those films tend to be bitterly Zionist (often promoting the “holocaust” narrative) and/or serving a materialist agenda. Spielberg is only one example.

Wonderful. A stand taken against the “control” agenda.

As far as the facemask nonsense is concerned, the fear engendered by the System propaganda of a year ago is only a veneer now. Few really believe that everyone is at risk of death. They know (or have guessed something similar) that only 1 in 4,000 people in the world has been killed by “Covid-19”, and that even in swamped (by immigrants and tourists) Britain, only 1 in about every 1,000 people has died from “the virus” (or, more accurately, “within 28 days of a positive test”, though in reality from other conditions).

No doubt the propagandists will try to enforce continued facemask muzzling, but the people are already giving up, despite the dictatorial and possibly invalid “laws”, “rules” etc. The social pressure is less now, as well. I filled up the car with fuel a few days ago and genuinely forgot to put on a disposable mask as I went to pay at the kiosk. A woman exited, also maskless, and the cashier, likewise maskless, did not ask me to put on any mask; in fact, the matter was not mentioned, and she even smiled, a fact I attribute either to her sunny personality or to my charming manner…

Boris-Idiot

Dominic Cummings

I see that Dominic Cummings has turned against Boris-idiot…https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/apr/23/dominic-cummings-launches-attack-on-boris-johnson

I blogged about Cummings several times over the past two years: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/01/03/dominic-cummings-a-government-of-dystopia-and-lunacy-posing-as-genius/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/ etc.

In what were “normal” times, this present government of clowns could and would not exist, certainly not for long, but we have a situation in which there is no legitimate government, yet also no legitimate nor effective official Opposition or opposition party. The former Labour leader, Corbyn, who was weak, and was a bit of a joke, but at was least anti-Zionist (up to a point), was replaced by the Jew-lobby puppet, Keir Starmer, whose idea seems to be to say, all the time, to the Government “we support 90% of what you do, but you should be doing it better…oh and doing it on bended knee, and wearing a facemask“!

I should not be surprised if Labour under Starmer were to start to do worse in elections even than under Corbyn and Miliband.

In Scotland, looks as though Scottish Labour (led now by a Pakistani) has pretty much given up (see tweet below):

Psychological tests sometimes surprise

In yesterday’s blog, I mentioned that I had once again tried out the “Political Compass” test, only to find that I was somewhere around where I was a year or two ago (previous tests):

Of course, labels (particularly the outdated “Left/Right” ones) can only take one so far without distortion of reality.

Doing that test reminded me of some others that I did, about a year ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/01/14/diary-blog-14-january-2021/. One was “which political villain are you most like?”

Ignoring the judgmentalism, quite interesting:

Interesting because I would not have said that I am much like Adolf Hitler in terms of outward personality. I can see, though, that there are shared traits.

Seems that Hitler was slightly more “brooding” and slightly less “carefree” than me. Perhaps unsurprising: I do not have hundreds of Red Army divisions advancing across the Pomeranian Plain at me.

Alison Chabloz

Latest reports from usually-reliable sources say that Alison Chabloz, the persecuted satirist, singer-songwriter and commentator, is now likely to be released from prison early, on electronic tag, on 28 March 2021 (next Wednesday), the same day on which she is due to face the latest charge or charges instigated by the malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake “charity”. That court appearance will be, I think, either the taking of a plea or, perhaps, a hearing as to mode of trial (the new charge or charges, which I think are under Public Order Act 1986, are such as can be tried either at Crown Court or in the Magistrates’ Court).

There is also the point that, as I realized early on, the new charge(s) are such as can only be preferred if the Attorney-General consents. It came to light on last appearance that (incredibly) the Crown Prosecution Service is now so shambolic that either its lawyers were unaware of that necessity (i.e. were deficient in their knowledge of the law) or negligently failed to apply for the required consent.

There is at least the possibility that the consent of the A-G will not be given. If so, the case will not proceed.

In the meantime, Alison will remain at Bronzefield Prison, Ashford (close to Heathrow). She has, it seems, received literally hundreds of cards and letters, much of the correspondence received being in the nature of fan mail from all over the world. She has also received a few books, and (I believe) small donations of money into her prison account (yesterday’s blog post contains links to the government site whereby small donations can be sent using your debit card).

Alison is reportedly in good spirits, and something of a celebrity in the prison, where she has (in the past days of greater freedom) been entertaining the other prisoners with some of her now well-known songs. The other prisoners have even been singing along with her, apparently.

If Alison is released as expected next week, she will have served exactly 4 weeks in prison since sentence on 31 March 2021. For that, the malicious “CAA” Jew-Zionist “charity” (Israel-lobby pressure group and cabal) has put out (as recently admitted in the Jewish “community” Press) FIVE YEARS of plotting, faked complaints, offline persecution, suborning and/or nagging of MPs, “elected” drones of other sorts, police etc.

A huge amount of public money has been wasted at the behest of those CAA swine; legal fees on both sides, police and CPS time, judicial time, prison costs, and so on. All so that the CAA can say, in both the msm and the directly-Jewish Press, “we got antisemite Chabloz convicted and imprisoned”.

A Pyrrhic victory for “the lobby”, I suspect.

As to Alison’s appeal against conviction and sentence, it is set down for the two days of 3-4 June 2021, probably at Southwark Crown Court, and will consist of a complete rehearing of the matter.

Despite the uselessness of facemasks in preventing virus spread. The human world scarcely deserves to survive.

When working for a large organization in Kazakhstan in 1997, I emailed a colleague in the USA to complain (politely) about her use of “Lviv” for “Lvov” (a city in the far west of Ukraine, and the most Ukrainian-nationalist part of that country: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lviv), only for that American lady to whine that she had already had to field dozens of similar complaints from colleagues all over the world! Its KIEV and LVOV (in the UK), not Kyiv and Lviv!

I shall of course continue to call Peking, Peking, and Bombay, Bombay. Ditto re. Calcutta, Madras, and other places. Screw anyone who dislikes it.

Britain continues to fall apart, though it is largely a decline which is happening quietly, like someone suffocating in a locked and shuttered room, with no-one listening or seeing the fact. Railways empty, and subsidized to run largely empty. Potholed roads. Hospitals largely empty. NHS operating on a skeleton basis for outpatients. Tradesmen trying to make a living where they can. Shops and pubs almost or actually empty, and often closed. Law courts with huge backlogs of cases.

The Rishi Sunak “free money” giveaway has disguised the decline, but it is there all right.

Local government elections farce

Needless to say, I shall be abstaining from voting. For one thing, where I live, there is only a LibLabCon, and maybe Green, choice. Anyway, even if some pathetic joke “nationalist” party such as “For Britain” or the like were to stand, I would not want to validate it.

I have so far only seen one leaflet put through my door, possibly because security makes approach difficult, but probably because the Conservative Party (who always win all local seats and most County Council seats). and Labour (who win almost no seats even at County level: 1 out of 78 at present) have no members able or willing to push leaflets out these days.

The sole leaflet seen was by the LibDems, and was in the form of a “newspaper”, folded, with a front and back page. 4 “pages” in all. What made me laugh is that their only policy that I support (protection of local libraries) was headlined with something like “PROTECT LOCAL LIBRAY SERVICES AND EDUCATION!”…and spelled like that! “Libray” for “Library”! Seems that their County Council candidate needs some education himself! Well, actually, he did look like a schoolboy anyway. About 18 and three-quarters (I think that he is about 30-ish in reality).

LibDems LibDems go away, come again some other day (or not).

The tweeter means well, but the war on European humanity will not be fought against and won by signing petitions, tweeting, blogging etc…

The Islamists (or in Imran Khan’s case, faux-Islamists) are learning from the Jew-Zionists and their attempts to criminalize, inter alia, any questioning of the “holocaust” farrago…

Once freedom of expression goes, it goes. In the UK, we have seen that singer-songwriter and commentator Alison Chabloz was recently convicted of making a few remarks (both unexceptionable and in fact true, if robustly put) about Jewish behaviour. That is how freedom of expression is destroyed, when a special-interest group makes expression of opinion liable to result in a criminal charge.

The so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” has been trying to “bag” Alison Chabloz for at least 5 years, a fact recently admitted to in the Jewish “community” press by the CAA’s “Director of Investigations and Enforcement”, Steven Silverman of Grays, Essex: https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/our-five-year-fight-to-imprison-holocaust-denier-alison-chabloz/.

“Slitherman” has in the past made attempts to have me too arrested via malicious complaint: see, for example, https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

As far as Alison Chabloz is concerned, last year (2020), the CAA (via a suborned Police and Crime Commissioner, police, at least one MP, and lawyers of the Crown Prosecution Service) managed to have Alison put on trial and then locked up for 2-3 days (4 including days of arrival and departure). She was granted bail pending appeal, and later won that appeal when the CPS had either to give up or to reveal details of the backstairs conspiracy which involved both the CPS and the other above-designated actors.

In fact, the days Alison spent in custody after lodging of that appeal have now been credited to her in respect of her present sentence. Good news.

Alison’s present situation is that she remains in Bronzefield Prison, near Heathrow Airport, where she has been since her recent conviction on 31 March 2021. In other words, she has, as of today, served three weeks and a day. Not including days of trial. She has applied, via Counsel, for bail pending appeal, before a Crown Court judge, but been refused.

Alison Chabloz was sentenced to 18 weeks. The usual 50% discount for release “on licence” (commonly referred to as “parole” in most countries) reduces that to 9 weeks. Days of custody after charge, and days of court hearing, including the two days of trial, take off at least another week; the 4 days spent wrongly imprisoned in 2020 are also taken off. All of that may add up to 2 weeks, thus making Alison’s time actually in prison about 7 weeks, meaning that she would normally expect to be released on licence sometime in the second half of May.

Word from usually-reliable sources is that Alison will in fact be released early on electronic tag next Monday, 26 April 2021. That, however, is not certain, as far as I know.

[Alison Chabloz]

Letters, cards, books, and money (enabling Alison to buy useful items in what seems to be a poorly-administered prison) can be sent. Voicemails and emails can also be sent: see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/bronzefield-prison; https://www.emailaprisoner.com/; https://prisonguide.co.uk/bronzefield-prison/; https://www.gov.uk/send-prisoner-money.

While it is possible that Alison will be released within the next 5 days, that is not certain. She would no doubt like to receive contact or any modest sums of money (sent by your debit card via a government-run site).

Multikulti Britain, 2021. Shows both the slide into near-anarchy under the surface, and also the damage that even a “small” weapon can cause. The calibre of the compact Beretta shown is not noted in that report, but quite likely a .22 (a favourite weapon of MOSSAD in the past).

The EU represses free speech (even more)

https://www.spiked-online.com/2021/04/15/the-eus-war-on-free-speech/

I met the academic lawyer and author of that Spiked article, Professor Tettenborn, a couple of times when I was based in Exeter as a practising barrister (2002-2008). In fact we both sat, with a third person, as “Lords of Appeal”, presiding over a moot contested by Exeter University law students in 2002, and held at the city’s historic Guildhall.

[Exeter Guildhall]
[Exeter Guildhall interior]

My one and only time sitting as a “judge”!

In that Spiked piece, Professor Tettenborn says that Alison Chabloz is “an obsessive anti-Semitic headbanger“, which is not true, in my opinion (and that is strange language —even these days— in a serious piece of analysis, surely?). At least the Professor agrees with me that the prosecution(s) of Alison Chabloz has or have been “abusive“.

On the wider point, the fact is that the repression of free speech in the EU and in the UK is almost entirely driven by the Jew-Zionist element.

Alison Chabloz: application for bail pending appeal

Alison Chabloz today applied for bail pending appeal. She was represented, as on previous occasions, by Adrian Davies of Counsel, and the hearing was at Southwark Crown Court before H.H. Judge Tomlinson.

The application was refused, it seems on the ground that, on the facts of the case, it would be impossible to fashion terms of a suitable order that would prevent Alison from “reoffending” in the period between today and the date of the expected appeal hearing.

What that means is that Alison Chabloz remains in custody, though reports from usually-reliable sources indicate that she will probably be released before the end of this month (though, again probably, forced to wear an electronic tag for a while, absurdly).

At present, Alison’s likely release date will be on, or about, 26 April 2021.

It seems that the date of Alison’s appeal (in the Crown Court) from the conviction and sentence of Westminster Magistrates’ Court will be 3-4 June 2021. God grant her victory!

[Alison Chabloz]

Recently, Steven Silverman of the abusive and malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” cabal and lobby group, wrote (in the Jewish press) that the “CAA” had put out “5 years of effort” into getting Alison Chabloz imprisoned, and now had finally succeeded.

In fact, Alison was briefly imprisoned last year, after yet another malicious attempt by the “CAA”, but was granted bail pending appeal; she then won that appeal (in effect: the CPS abandoned its opposition), and so only served 2 days in the end (plus the days of reception and release).

Slitherman crowed about Alison’s imprisonment then and now, as did several of the (other) usual Jews and “antifa” idiots on Twitter.

Net result? After all that five years of effort —on Twitter, in the Jewish press, in suborning politicians and police officials, as well as the CPS—, the “CAA” has succeeded, this year, in having Alison Chabloz imprisoned for a total of what looks like being rather less than one month.

As against that, Alison Chabloz has received huge publicity and rather a lot of support, as a direct result of the prosecution and conviction. Don’t believe me? Look at the Readers’ Comments appended to the recent Daily Mail report about the case. Thousands supporting her.

Radio 4 Today Programme

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

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

BBC Four

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Because both Government and Opposition are pro-“The Great Reset” and “the Great Replacement”, both are riddled with agents of the Jewish lobby, both are pro-ZOG [Zionist Occupation Government], pro-NWO [New World Order] and in favour of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, and therefore both following exactly the same agenda. Understand now??

Not sure that I can agree with Hitchens. “Peter Simple”, whose stuff I occasionally saw in the early 1970s, always seemed to me to be a rather unfunny propagandist of a kind of faux-English suburban pseudo-reactionary mindset. Fake. At least, that was my occasional impression, a long time ago.

Ah, useful Wikipedia…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Wharton: “Wharton was born as Michael Bernhard Nathan, the son of a businessman of German-Jewish origin...”

There are plenty of examples of socio-political madness at present in the Western world, not least the near-worship of the blacks (as in the “BLM” nonsense), and in respect of “the virus”. The former is nonsense partly because much of our present world has been created over the past few thousand years, and especially the past 600 years, by white European people(s). The blacks were and are mere adjuncts, bystanders, spectators, sometimes nuisances and, yes (and as the “BLM” proponents themselves say) sometimes “victims”.

As to the latter of my two examples, i.e. “the virus”, in some respects that seems to be a deeper-embedded sort of madness, perhaps because based on a deeper emotion— fear.

The Coronavirus or Covid-19 virus has (supposedly) so far killed somewhere around 2 million people in the world. That is about one person in every 4,000 people. In the UK, the death toll per unit of population has been far higher (taking the statistics as given, though they are obviously faked or wrong to a great degree). In the UK, there have been well over 60,000 people who have died at least “with” Coronavirus. That is somewhere around one person in every 1,000 people in the UK.

Conclusion as to seriousness: serious but not existentially so.

Conclusion as to measures taken: absolutely mad. Society has been crippled, normal life largely put on hold, civil rights abrogated, and the UK economy facing a very serious hit. A cowed and frightened population have been walking around (even on solitary country walks etc!) in facemasks (despite such masks being of doubtful use), and every kind of busybody and self-appointed guardian of public behaviour given loose rein. That applies also to the police.

Meanwhile, millions of people are all but abandoned by the NHS because their ailments (including the most serious) are priotitized as secondary in importance to the supposed battle against “the virus”.

The public debate, such as there is, is futile, because a huge propaganda campaign has frightened the unthinking mass of the people into imagining that their lives are in danger from this virus, whereas for 999 out of 1,000 people that is simply not so. Reasoned arguments from such as Lord Sumption, the former Law Lord (Supreme Court justice), cut little ice, because emotion almost always trumps reason.

Oh, well. In the phrase of the day, which so well sums up the present apathy and complacency, which applies in almost everything now (apart from the “panicdemic”), “we are where we are”…

Alison Chabloz

On this Easter Sunday, let us not forget brave and persecuted satirist, singer and songwriter, Alison Chabloz, presently sitting in prison because a malicious Jew-Zionist cabal instigated a prosecution under the notoriously flawed Communications Act 2003, s.127.

It is to be hoped that Counsel for Alison Chabloz will soon be able to secure her release on bail pending appeal (to Crown Court) against an egregiously poor verdict and sentence by a magistrate. Unfortunately, that is unlikely to happen (if it does happen) before Tuesday [6 April 2021], at earliest.

That last is interesting as a metaphor. The same view, pretty much, that John Buchan, or Zuleika Dobson, might have seen before the First World War, or that others might have seen between the wars. Oxford now is hugely different (not just in terms of buildings but socially too) from both 1911 and the 1930s world of Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited, from that of C.S. Lewis, Tolkien and the Inklings, but that view remains essentially the same.

When I was a (rather belated) law student, in the 1980s, there was being discussed the question of whether barristers would continue to wear wigs and gowns. The wisest answer came from a lecturer who said that the Bar would cast aside everything except the wigs and gowns. The outward forms would remain.

In fact, while the above has proven to be mainly the case (in Crown Courts especially), in County Court the judge has discretion to dispense with the old form of dress, and in High Court and other fora (particularly in commercial cases) the old form of dress is often not in use now (neither is it in family law cases).

Nonetheless, most people do encounter the practising Bar in Crown Courts, and there the old forms remain in force. The substance of the Bar has, however, changed out of all recognition even since I was finally (having spent time in the USA) Called to the Bar in 1991.

Looking at the UK, the same is true in many other ways. Look at, for example, the Monarchy. It looks, at least largely, similar to what it was in, say 1956, the year of my birth. In reality, it has changed to something rather different. As I have blogged on previous occasions, whatever one may think of the Queen and Consort, no-one could mistake them or their lifestyle for that of “ordinary people”.

When you look at Charles, Anne, Andrew, Edward, there is less of the “royal”. You could just about (certainly in the case of the last three) imagine them living in some expensive part of suburbia, as part of (if the term now has any meaning) the rich “middle classes”, or indeed the “nouveaux riches”; or (as indeed is the case) living in Gloucestershire or Surrey, racing around in Range-Rovers, like characters in an “Aga saga”.

What about William and Kate, Harry and the Royal Mulatta? Notionally “royal” (in the case of William and Kate), but only in a “holding on by the fingertips” sense. Certainly there is nothing royal about Harry the “Royal Cuck” and Meghan the “Royal Mulatta” (who, not so many years ago, was actually married to someone else, a Jew businessman in Southern California!).

I do not want to be too hard on Harry. He obviously has emotional or mental problems, and was bagged by the Mulatta easier than the Duke of Edinburgh used to bag grouse, but he is basically now a peripheral nobody, albeit with plenty of money and still holding (so far) a couple of English titles.

William and Kate? At present still lined up to be King and Queen at some point, but I rather doubt that they will reach the finishing post.
