Saturday quiz

Image

Not so good this week: I scored 5/10, though that was still enough to beat political journalist John Rentoul, who scored only 4/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 3, 7, 8, and 10.

Getting the public used to doing what System figureheads tell them will be (supposedly) best for them; a psychological experiment on the grand scale. Conditioning the public, as with the facemask nonsense, just as stage hypnotists do.

One more example of why SIS/MI6 should be radically reformed, and most of its careerists sacked.

Alison Chabloz

Readers may be aware that persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, faces yet another trial (and, once again, after a complaint by a Jewish person).

It has now been decided that the trial will be held on 18 February 2022. I believe that the forum will be Westminster Mags Court. I do not have information as to likely duration of trial. Presumably one day.

I doubt it, judging by the students and recent graduates who appear on quiz shows such as University Challenge (some, often foreign students, are better), and (a fortiori) The Chase. I happened to see an old Chase (I think from about 2012 or so) yesterday. The contestant was a girl law student from up North somewhere. Her ambition? “To be a barrister like Shaun [Wallace].”

The contestant was very ignorant; dire. She was knocked out. I wonder whether she became a barrister. Probably. It is hard to fail, now. The Bar is pretty much a dustbin these days.

I might add that Shaun Wallace, the “Chaser”, usually billed by the presenter (Bradley Walsh) as, inter alia, “legal eagle and barrister”, is probably a good deal better at quizzing than at law [see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaun_Wallace#Law], and was up before a Bar Disciplinary Tribunal only one day before me, in October 2016. My own “trial” was —of course— not about ethics and competence but about my views on society: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

Quiz shows and similar msm entertainment often have people who are better at being on TV than at their supposed main or former activities. On The Chase, the main “Chaser” is Mark Labett, “The Beast” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Labbett], who (though billed on the show as “the man mountain of maths”), achieved only a Third in mathematics at degree level (at Oxford).

Another similar case is the once almost ubiquitous Carol Vorderman [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carol_Vorderman], who at peak was making £1M a year from TV (mainly). Despite having a reputation as highly intelligent etc, her degree (in Engineering, at Cambridge) was only a Third-class, and indeed she was awarded a Third class in every one of her three years there.

Paper qualifications can only take you so far, and sometimes a step back can later result in two steps forward. Had Carol Vorderman achieved a (thanks to award inflation, now all but inevitable) “First”, she would probably have got a good job somewhere but missed out on her TV opportunity, and her (ultimately) £1M a year pay.

As for radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer vowing “not to forget” about the treacherous MPs and their behaviour, does she mean she will actually do anything about them? No.

Empty words, then, and words that will have no MPs quaking in their boots.

That statistic includes non-whites, so the figure for white British women (especially with equally-white British men as fathers) will be well below 1.5.

You carry in your blood the holy inheritance of your
fathers and forefathers. You do not know those who
have vanished in endless ranks into the darkness of the
past. But they all live in you and walk in your blood upon
the earth that consumed them in battle and toil and in
which their bodies have long decayed.

Your blood is therefore something holy. In it your parents gave you not only a body, but your nature. To deny your blood is to deny yourself. No one can
change it. But each decides to grow the good that one has
inherited and suppress the bad. Each is also given will
and courage.

You do not have only the right, but also the duty to pass
your blood on to your children, for you are a member of
the chain of generations that reaches from the past into
eternity, and this link of the chain that you represent
must do its part so that the chain is never broken.

But if your blood has traits that will make your children
unhappy and burdens to the state, then you have the
heroic duty to be the last. The blood is the carrier of life. You carry in it the secret of creation itself. Your blood is holy, for in it God’s will
lives.” [SS Verlag: material for instruction of the Hitlerjugend]

Humanity needs a quantum leap in its evolution. It can only do that by having a foundation worthy of the new people. The white Northern European peoples have to evolve to a level where they can be the foundation for that quantum leap. Nothing is more important.

British society, 2021…

What strikes me as crazed is that, firstly, students “reported” (denounced) a fellow-student for stating a simple fact, and, secondly, that the university then sided with the denouncers! Like a Komsomol witchhunt in the old Soviet Union…

…and what about this?

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10111731/Boris-Johnson-promises-tough-sentences-people-foul-material-online.html

The part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer currently posing as Prime Minister is planning to repress freedom of expression even further in the UK. He is supported in that by Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer and his declining “Labour” pack of idiots.

Starmer: “Dangerous algorithms on Facebook and Instagram, and Hope Not Hate have shown me an example of violent Islamism and far-right propaganda on TikTok.’

He called on the Prime Minister to ‘commit to bring forward the second reading of the Online Safety Bill by the end of this calendar year’, adding: ‘If he does, we’ll support it.’” [Daily Mail].

The bastard is taking his “facts” from the malicious and misnamed Jew-Zionist snooping organization “Hope not Hate”!

Here we see the complete fakery of so-called “democracy” in the UK: repression of free speech rolled out swiftly, with the so-called “Opposition” mostly voting with the Government (of clowns). “Democracy” in the UK is a complete sham.

“Zionist Occupation Government” is not just a phrase or a “conspiracy theory”. It’s fact. It’s right in front of us.

Read the above now, while you still can…

Glasgow is not the only area badly-administered. I have just had a ghastly and (in the end) 2-hour roundtrip, unavoidable and made awkward and irritating by several simultaneous lots of roadworks (I suppose at least some of the roads are being repaired), both in the country and in a small town.

How is it that (especially in respect of smaller roads), repairs have evidently not been carried out for years? I saw tiny lanes never seen by me before , many with terrible surfacing, road bumps and potholes. Even at (at times) 20 mph, a journey of bumps and jolts.

To make it worse, I turned on BBC Radio 4, which had a programme of such surpassing awfulness that I looked it up when I arrived back at my very humble abode: Laura Barton’s Notes on Music. The only reason I did not snap it off was because I wanted to know when it was midday (I sold my watches long ago, and the clock in my old car no longer works).

Does anyone not trapped in a traffic jam (or similar chaos) actually listen to Radio 4 any more?

There were compensations today, though. At one point, a stag, not large but with impressive antlers, crossed the road not far ahead of me. Fallow deer.

Still, despite that pleasant reminder of the animal kingdom, I had time to wonder why nothing seems to work in England any more, and why everyday life seems to have become unnecessarily complicated.

A sneak

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/pub-goer-reports-bbc-presenter-25265871

A sneak has reported the radio presenter James Naughtie to the police for drink-driving. Read the above report.

The facts were that said sneak observed Naughtie downing a glass of Chardonnay, and even went into the pub garden to watch him, before reporting the matter to the police (and taking a picture of Naughtie’s car).

Naughtie was then confronted at his home (or one of them), and blew a mark of 35, which would be borderline in England, where the limit is 35 (and would have been below the legal limit by the time a court-admissible sample was taken at a police station), but is well above the legal limit in Scotland, where that limit is 22.

Now I would not complain about this had Naughtie (or anyone in that situation) been plainly legless, but the man had only had one or two glasses of wine!

Time was when (in both England and Scotland, I think) the sneak was despised rather than admired. That was then. Now there are a whole host of petty sneaks and denouncers all too ready to, as the Australians now apparently say, “dob someone in”.

You see it all the time on Twitter and other social media platforms, the denouncers (often, though not always, Jewish), whose whole life seems to revolve around “reporting” people to (say) Twitter, or to employers, or to professional organizations, or even to the police. Pathetic.

Incidentally, I do not make the above points because I am a drink-driver. I can probably count on one hand the number of times (over about 25 years) when I have driven —probably— over the local limit; at least three of those times would have been in the Caribbean, maybe once or twice in the UK. In fact, I rarely drink (even one glass) and drive now, so I am not pleading in my own interest at all; I just despise the “informer” type.

Final point: I never liked Naughtie’s radio persona or views much, so I have not written the above because I favour Naughtie himself.

Yet the mask zealots rule supreme on Twitter (though not in the real world). Many are are still pushing for renewed facemask nonsense, the plainly not very effective vaccinations, strict social distancing etc etc. It makes me wonder, not for the first time, whether there is not a psychological basis for their zealotry and unwillingness to move on. Many are also the hardcore “rejoin EU” types, such as those “FBPE” idiots you see on Twitter.

Off the Cluff

Memoirs of oil and publishing (etc) tycoon, Algy Cluff. The book looks interesting, but seems to be unavailable on Amazon, despite having an entry on that site. Is that because the Foreword is written by Taki, who is a bete noire of both the “woke” and the Jews? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taki_Theodoracopulos. Maybe, though, it is because there has been too heavy a demand; the book is not on retail sale until next week.

Whatever the truth of that, I was interested to see the piece about David Tang [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Tang]. He seems to have been a more benevolent and philanthropic (and Chinese) version of the Jew fraudster who was called “Robert Maxwell” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Maxwell].

There have very recently been some newspaper stories about the book, Cluff, and Tang (who was once an intern at Cluff’s organization): https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-10109561/EDEN-CONFIDENTIAL-Fraud-David-Tang-lived-high-life-claims-old-boss-Algy-Cluff.html; https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/10/21/truth-sir-david-tang-billionaire-socialite-went-riches-rags/.

While Tang’s businesses are or were not the sort of places I usually frequent (I do not really like to shop anyway), I have in fact been to what was his flagship Hong Kong store, Shanghai Tang, in 2006.

I was in Hong Kong, getting some suits, jackets, shirts etc made at the famous Sam’s Tailor [https://www.samstailor.com/— I recall talking, about racing, mainly, to the present owner, whose photos are on the website, and who is the son of the one who was the owner in 2006].

Among the many items (all custom-made/bespoke) I bought was a very nice Chinese dark blue silk dressing gown with Chinese symbols on it. I asked if I could have made a similar but rather smaller one in another colour for my wife, as a present. They demurred because they would be unable to measure her (I was in HK alone). They were quite firm about it, even after I pressed them, so I asked where I might get one for her. They said Shanghai Tang. I went there.

Well, I did find a suitable but ready-to-wear dressing gown for my wife, and it was actually far better quality than my (still good) one from Sam’s Tailor. It was also far more expensive— about 15x the cost, in fact. That’s life…

[Shanghai Tang, Hong Kong, as it was before 2011; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghai_Tang]

I hope that I shall be able to read Cluff’s book; it sounds like it might be an interesting read. Apparently, Tang once tipped a waiter at a casino USD $90,000! Talk about playing the big shot!

Late film travelogue

A 1930s Agfa-colour film showing Berlin at the time of the 1936 Olympics, suggested by one of the regular readers of this blog:

Only three years into the currency of the NSDAP government! Imagine that! Boris-idiot has been (posing as) Prime Minister of the UK for nearly as long, and the Conservative party has been in office in the UK for some 11.5 years…

Another similar film?

In this case, not colour film, but more recently colourized.

More? In the following case, not moving pictures but some still colour and b&w photographs.

Pity about the repetitive soundtrack of that one, though.

Diary Blog, 20 October 2021, including Ludwig II of Bavaria

Interesting film

The above film (in German, but with English subtitles) came to my attention thanks to a reader of this blog. There have been other films about Ludwig II of Bavaria, notably that of the director, Visconti: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_(film). I saw that film in the mid-1980s, but the original English-language version has been lost. The surviving dubbed versions (in Italian and German) are still available.

Ludwig II: a complex and disturbed person, but who left, famously, two great legacies— his castles, and the works of Wagner, who was supported financially by Ludwig.

What is less well-known (see the YouTube video below) is that Ludwig also did a huge amount to improve Bavaria in other ways, including the fields of education, transport and public sanitation.

Ludwig was one of two people considered as candidates suitable to be anointed as Kaiser of the united Germany. The other candidate was successful, and became Wilhelm II of Germany. The history of Germany and Europe might have been happier had Ludwig been chosen.

Wagner later went on to establish the Bayreuth Festspiel, which still exists (I myself have been to Bayreuth, though not to the Festspiel).

Why not? After all, the same number of hours could be worked; 10 hours per day. In fact, you could even have people work 3 days per week at 13 hours per day, but that might be seen as brutal, despite the great benefit of only having to work three days out of seven.

I daresay that many may question my reposting of tweets by Owen Jones (who is an ideologically-silly faux-“revolutionary”), particularly in view of the fact that he actually tweeted, some years ago, and to sinister Jewish-lobby sex pest and depressive John Woodcock (then a disloyal “Labour” MP, now posing as “Lord Walney”), that “John” should “block that guy [me]— he’s a neo-Nazi” (Woodcock complied, at once…makes one think).

My answer is that I do sometimes repost those whom I dislike or despise, if they make valid and/or accurate points. #MoralHighGround…

My assessment of Jones, from a couple of years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/04/a-brief-word-about-owen-jones/.

Much of the attack on free speech in Britain today, and for decades past, has come from the Jewish lobby. Most of the sources of msm news and comment are controlled by that same lobby, or cabal.

I myself have been attacked over the years, by fanatical Jews belonging to the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] and/or “UK Lawyers for Israel” [“UKLFI”], there being a considerable overlap in membership. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

The attacks on me did not start in 2014, and did not end in 2017. However, I am still here and, while my Twitter account was closed down at the instigation of the Jew-Zionists in 2018, my blog (started in late 2016) is still up and firing, so far.

As for the fanatics who oppose me, they all seem to be dying…; in fact, a number have already died, I believe. “Instant karma”, or just unconnected karma?

There is a huge attack on freedom of expression across the Western world (in much of the rest of the world, such freedom rarely existed anyway). Most of the attack is by the Jewish-Zionist element.

…yet Coren, a Jew, is still lucratively employed by the mass media, despite his disgusting behaviour. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren#Tweets_about_the_death_of_Dawn_Foster; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren#Polish_controversy.

Contrast that with my own treatment— disbarred, wrongfully, for having tweeted general comments about society and politics (in the end, just 5 tweets!). In fact, all of those tweets have stood the test of time, such as the one about the corrupt little Jew, Sarkozy, and that about Jewish-lobby puppet and expenses cheat, Michael Gove (at the time, I did not know that the little bastard was (or is still?) also both a drunk and a cocaine abuser).

Note: I should add that I was actually quite wrongfully disbarred in 2016. Not my assertion alone, incidentally.

In fact, the Bar Standards Board wrote to me a couple of years after my “trial” in 2016 to offer me a “retrial” (new hearing), because I should have been “tried” before a 3-person Tribunal panel (which has no power to disbar) instead of a 5-person panel (which does have the power to disbar).

I decided not to bother with a new hearing, partly because I thought that, had it gone back to Tribunal, and had I then been found “guilty” (such terminology is not in fact used), I might have been fined, and had no money with which to pay any likely fine. Maybe I was wrong. Still, I may change my mind, just to spite (((them)))!

Further, since the notorious Henry Hendron cases, it has been accepted that a barrister not holding a Practice Certificate both at time of “offence” and time of Tribunal, cannot be “tried” at all by the Bar regulation system, let alone disbarred. I myself last held a Practice Certificate in 2008, six years before the Jews (“UKLFI”) made their complaint against me, and two years before I joined Twitter.

As said above, I may decide to have the notional disbarment deleted, just to make the point, though obviously (?), at age 65, I have no wish to return to the practising Bar (which is now a dustbin full of trash anyway).

Readers might like to note also, that (contrary to what they may now read about me, as tweeted by a few crazed and fanatical Jews on Twitter) when I was at the practising Bar, I was mentioned favourably in the main legal directories, and was commended for my legal expositions, on several occasions, by judges in the High Court and County Court. As people say today, “just saying…”.

You can see where this is going: to get your (2022? 2023? later?) “Covid Social Passport”, you will have to get a monthly or three-monthly injection of useless rubbish. If you refuse to have it, or if the State thinks that you should be “denied” it (for the wrong opinions, or for dissident activities) then no injection, which = no right to travel, work away from home, get State benefits (because unable to attend DWP interviews etc), use shops, use NHS facilities, get medical or dental treatment, participate in public political activity etc. Effectively, house imprisonment, and a lingering death, ultimately….

Tweets seen

Apart from which, I have seen many tweets making the very good point that the recent assassination of an MP has made not only headlines but almost all the UK news for days, and the police and MI5 have been running round in circles every bit as much as the msm.

On the other hand, as those same tweets point out, “ordinary people” (not MPs) are now stabbed in numerous incidents every day, most are killed (not all, admittedly) by blacks and browns, and the news stays on the crime pages of the newspapers, or in local newspapers. It rarely gets onto TV news.

Jewish terrorism in the UK of the 1960s

I see that a Jewish scribbler who writes for, inter alia, the Daily Mail, seems to be enthusiastic about the Jewish thugs and other criminals who were part of the “62 Group”, formed in 1962 to attack the meetings of, but not exclusively, Colin Jordan. They also attacked social-national people caught alone in the streets etc.

The “62 Group” was modelled on the equally-thuggish “43 Group” of the mid-1940s.

It is, as bank managers say, “disappointing” to see the BBC make a drama series, Ridley Road, glorifying such criminals; disappointing but not surprising, as infested as the BBC now is.

I have not yet seen the TV drama in question, but I imagine that it is very cardboard cut-out, with the Jews all wonderful, brave, daring etc, and the social-national people largely unpleasant (and, of course, “wrong”) etc…

Here are the tweets I saw today:

[late update: the original tweet is now invisible, because the Jewish journalist (Nicole Lampert) referred to above has locked her Twitter account, probably only temporarily]

The reply is from one Stephen Applebaum (who also sometimes trolls on Twitter under the name “@rattus2384”, and who is a fervent supporter/activist for the tiny but well-funded “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”). His reply seems to imply, at least, an attitude impressed by the (alleged) fact (I did not know it) that the once-famous hairdresser Vidal Sassoon used knives as part of his “activity” with the “43 Group”. Very topical, with criminals stabbing people ranging from MPs to “ordinary citizens” in 2021 Britain. The Wikipedia entry for Sassoon glosses over that aspect: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vidal_Sassoon.

Not everyone, though, supports vigilantes, as at least one further reply to those tweets indicates.

The “62 Group” also included such as Gerry Gable, a half-Jew who, with others, burgled the home of historian David Irving [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Irving] in 1963, and who eventually (in the late 1970s or 1980s) married (small world) a much younger half-Jewish woman, Sonia [nee Hochfelder], whom I actually met a few times in 1976, when she attended a few meetings of the League of St. George. She even had a drink with me once.

A couple of cautionary points: firstly, the Wikipedia piece about David Irving is plainly very (((biased))). Sadly, Wikipedia is rather “infested” in some parts of its output.

Secondly, re. Gerry Gable, Sonia Gable/Hochfelder and their Jewish “antifascist” Searchlight magazine (which featured me a couple of times in the 1970s, and again in 1993, I seem to recall), a Google search turns up all sorts of allegations about them which may or may not be accurate.

The 1993 mention of me in Searchlight came after I wrote a short letter to the Independent newspaper, criticizing the then-quite-new “globalism” as it affected the post-Soviet European space from the Atlantic to the Urals. I was looking for it recently via Google, now that it is clear that I have been proven right.

Those mentioned above are now either dead or aged. Sassoon died in 2012, Gable is 84, and David Irving is 83. I think that Sonia Hochfelder was about a year or two older than me, which would make her 66-68 now.

As for Colin Jordan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colin_Jordan], I occasionally corresponded with him in, I think, 1975 or 1976 (I think the former). He (unsurprisingly!) thought little of my proposal that he subordinate his people and resources to me (aged 18/19 at the time)… His letters came from some farmstead in Yorkshire.

Looking now at Jordan’s Wikipedia entry, I see that he only died in 2009, a fact hitherto unknown to me. I had assumed that he had died many years before, maybe in the 1980s. His longevity, like that of Glazunov, surprises, despite 85 not being terribly ancient these days. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Glazunov#Death.

Still, the ripples of those 1960s and 1970s days are still with us today. The “62 Group” may have passed into —and become a footnote to— history, but one of its Jewish toughs, Gerald Ronson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_Ronson], aged about 23 in 1962, is now (via a family trust https://ronsonfoundation.org/cst/) one of the main bankrollers for the “Community Security Trust” or “CST”, the Jewish-Zionist strongarm and snooping org, which has 90+ full-time employees and had, in 2020, an income of over £11 million: https://cst.org.uk/about-cst.

…or to put it another way, no System parties inspire much enthusiasm among voters.

Oh. I only knew of him as someone in favour of better animal welfare, and I myself support that…

Where are the new Ned Kellys?

Quite. The “average joe” may “know” that there was “a” Russian Revolution, but what he [thinks he] “knows”, he knows only because somewhere in his mind is a misunderstood or part-understood conflation of biased and simplistic school lessons, and a general milieu in film and other msm output of to the effect that “the Tsars and aristocracy, living in luxury, burdened the workers and peasants, who then overthrew them and supported Lenin and the Bolsheviks“.

Not that there was no grain of truth in that. All big lies (such as the “holocaust” farrago) have to have some basis in reality, however slight. Russia before (and after) “the Revolution” did have terrible social problems, exploitation etc, which before 1917 included absentee and rentier landlords, and a social system that paid little heed to the poor.

The devil is, of course, in the detail. Few (even those today professing to be “fully-automated luxury Communists”) seem to know that there were many shades of opinion in pre-1917 —and, for a while, in post-1917— Russia. Many parties. Many tendencies.

Few know that the “real” Russian Revolution, as such, was in February 1917 (March 1917 in the new calendar), and that that Revolution was itself overthrown in October (old calendar) 1917, by a coup d’etat or palace revolution planned by Lenin and the Bolsheviks, and carried out as a military operation; it was a putsch in one or two cities of a vast empire, not a popular uprising, as many now think, and as the Soviet system propagandized via the films of Eisenstein.

The original soundtrack (originally played in cinemas) is now replaced by the 1966 one written by Shostakovitch, which uses music of his tone poem October, and which forms also part of his 12th Symphony, The Year 1917:

Of course, even today, relatively few people realize that the second “Russian Revolution”, i.e. the Bolshevik coup d’etat in the Autumn of 1917, was basically Jewish. Almost all the leaders of the Bolsheviks were Jews, or (like Lenin) part-Jew. Even Churchill, though later himself totally in the pocket of the Jews, at the time (1917-1918) wrote articles in the Morning Post (at the time, the favoured newspaper of the UK aristocracy and wealthy) about it. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Morning_Post#Controversial_publications.

I was told, at second-hand, a story about Lenin in exile. I knew a lady, born 1926, whose father had been a Graf (Count), and an German aristocratic hereditary landowner in East Prussia, the area abutting the Baltic, and now split between Poland and Russia (Kaliningradskaya Oblast, the region around former Konigsberg [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6nigsberg].

The Graf was descended from an early master of the Teutonic Knights [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teutonic_Order] and his estate near Danzig [after 1945, Gdansk, and a “Polish” city] comprised over 20,000 hectares, or about 50,000 acres. The mother of the lady I knew came from Austria, where her family also held estates.

The lady I knew was related via both father and mother to a number of historical figures, including Metternich [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klemens_von_Metternich] and Mannerheim [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Gustaf_Emil_Mannerheim].

The father of the lady I knew was sympathetic to socialism when a student in Vienna or Munich, or Zurich (I forget now which of those I was told, I think Zurich). He was apparently acquainted with Lenin, who was in exile in that part of the world (he was certainly in both Zurich and Munich at the time).

Whichever city it was (as I say, I think Zurich, though possibly Vienna), Lenin was arrested, but was released on the intervention of said well-connected student and his diplomatic contacts.

“Irony of Fate”: the father of the lady I knew was shot in 1939 or 1940 by either the Red Army or NKVD, during the upheavals in the Baltic region (they were travelling at the time by car from Romania). The estate near Danzig was finally taken over by the forces of Sovietism in 1945, and became a hospital, then an agricultural college.

The lady I knew (who had been taken prisoner/hostage by the NKVD in 1939 and was confined in Siberia/Northern Kazakhastan for three years before escaping…a long story) was able to revisit her childhood home, now in Poland, in the mid-1990s. She stayed in Sopot [former Zoppot] in the hotel she remembered visiting in childhood: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Hotel,_Sopot].

A sentimental journey, and no doubt a bitter-sweet one.

[The Grand Hotel, Sopot —former Zoppot—, now part of the Sofitel luxury hotel chain]

Life goes on, even after the most enormous upheavals…

Still milking it…

Jews get “restitution” of property (and/or other payments), property supposedly confiscated by Germans in the late 1930s, or early 1940s, but non-Jews get nothing in compensation for land or whatever taken by Soviet or other forces, despite having held that land for centuries (as contrasted with the recently-acquired monies or commercial properties etc allegedly taken from Jews in the interwar period).

Ha ha! About time that malicious and mentally-afflicted troll got lost. See: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/18/theyre-coming-to-take-me-away-ha-ha/.

Perhaps he woke up to the fact that few people are interested in his malicious and unpleasant tweets anyway; or maybe he just forgot to take his medicines today.

The only thing that gives me pause is that many such online nuisances… trolls, wastes of space, whatever… make a big noise about “giving up the Twitter account”, then slink back a while later. Many trolls have done that in recent years.

In fact Twitter is a waste of time now. Most of the interesting accounts (such as mine, if I say so myself) are gone, in my case because a pack of Jews conspired together to make (as they do) malicious complaint about my tweets. That was in 2018, at which time I had about 3,000 Twitter followers (equivalent to maybe 6,000 today, had the account remained), whereas I see that “Slatfascists” still only has 2,358, three and a half years later. Not that “followers” mean much. In fact, the real influence of Twitter (as I have blogged before) is very limited.

Still, “Slatfascists” (who may or may not have been “doxed” recently) still has the privilege of reading daily (or, as he no doubt describes it, “monitoring”) my blog. He has read me since I started blogging in 2016, and can still do that when he goes back down the rabbit-hole.

As a matter of fact, my guess is that “Slatfascists” will be back on Twitter before long, just like so many others. After all, what else interests him (apart from reading my blog, and rubbing his hands when someone like Alison Chabloz gets prosecuted)? Apparently, playing some absurd “space cadet” electronic game…

Still, Twitter will be at least marginally more pleasant for his absence (as long as it lasts).

[“Get down there, where you wanted to send me, you unclean spirit!”]

[Late-night update: it seems that “Slatfascists”, or at least his Twitter account, has “gone up the chimney”. Good riddance, but it means that his above tweet cannot now be seen, because the account has been deleted, not merely locked. For those who did not read it earlier, the tweet said that “Slatfascists” was leaving Twitter temporarily or permanently because Twitter would not expel all the accounts he (daily) “reported”, who were, he alleged, all “Nazis”.

I always thought that “Slatfascists” had to be at least part-Jew. His obsessions, his behaviour etc…

Oh wellHow many green bottles does that make, about to fall off the wall?].

[Update, a day later: as I predicted, “Slatfascists” was unable to stop trolling, and is already back online…unable to stick to his “resolution” even for 24 hours. A weak-minded little troll with nothing to say about society]

Sometimes I wonder what is the proportion of the mentally-afflicted in the UK population now; must be huge, and on Twitter (especially pro-“antifa” Twitter, they seem even more prevalent]

300. Meaning probably 500 or 1,000 overall. Even on the lowest likely figure, that is at least 100,000 a year (and on the highest, maybe as many as 400,000), just from those crossing the Channel in an armada of rubber boats. Yes, fewer in the winter months, but more in the summer (up to 2,000 a day; and this government of Jews, Pakistanis and Indians does nothing but talk. What a surprise…

Outside some major ports and a few urban enclaves, well into the 1960s if not 1970s. I know. I was there.

A few points: firstly, I have been saying for 10+ years that Britain should get closer to Russia in every way, thus —inter alia— preserving our energy security at affordable price levels.

Secondly, Russia in 2021 is not the Soviet Union. It has no hostile ideology or any “take over the world” gameplan. In fact, that was not really, after 1945, or 1953 (death of Stalin), or from the 1970s, the intention of even the Soviet leadership, despite the superpower rivalry that existed.

Thirdly. Britain needs energy whatever. Russia can provide it.

I make no apology for repeating the basic reasons for the propaganda onslaught: the Great Replacement; the Great Reset; the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan; 2022-2055 (being the era that will soon replace that of 1989-2022).

That is the folk singer, Shusha, as in Shusha Guppy [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shusha_Guppy]. I have, or used to have, one of her CDs.

Shusha Guppy, now deceased, had a son, Darius Guppy [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darius_Guppy], whose interesting memoir, Roll the Dice [https://www.amazon.co.uk/Roll-Dice-True-Money-Betrayal/dp/1857821599] I reviewed on Amazon (sadly, a pack of Jews pressured Amazon to remove my reviews several years ago, despite my being at the time one of the top reviewers —as chosen by readers—on the site; as a result, my reviews are not now available to the public. Jews destroying freedom of expression…it’s what they do).

I met Darius Guppy once, in early 2017, when he attended the now-defunct London Forum run by Jez Turner [Jeremy Bedford-Turner, later persecuted and prosecuted by Jewish pressure groups, and imprisoned].

Darius Guppy (who may have been aware that I had reviewed his book) approached me after I had given my talk about freedom of expression (ironically, the video of my talk is itself censored online…); we spoke briefly. He seemed a pleasant fellow. I understand that he now lives near Cape Town. I would not be surprised to discover that his adventurous life continues to be adventurous.

Strangely enough, I recall dining with some Persians in London, an elderly lady, her two sons, and a few other people, the family being exiles (the father of the men and husband of the lady had been executed by the Ayatollah’s regime soon after the fall of the Shah). Guppy was in the news at the time (early 1990s). The lady had known Shusha Guppy, and recalled Darius Guppy when young as “a nice young boy“. He certainly seemed, on meeting him, likeable, on the face of it.

Hitchens, despite having been a journalist —a real one, unlike the majority calling themselves such— for decades, still seems (probably only seems) surprised at the gap between actual reality and a propaganda message saying something else. cf. “racial equality” and “anti-sexism” campaigns etc.

Sometimes I wonder which is more deluded: the general public, lapping up the lies put out by the System drones on the msm, or the System drones themselves.

David Lammy

I was just laughing again at the following clip from Mastermind:

Lammy is no mastermind! His Wikipedia entry is too kind to him, and shows (yet again) the error of relying too much on superficial paper qualifications. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Lammy.

I first posted the above clip about 6 months ago, and then wrote that, “Good grief! Someone sent me the clip below. I knew that Lammy was/is a deadhead, and in fact I have been meaning for a long time to add an assessment of him to my “Deadhead MPs” series, but…well, see for yourself!” and “People will say, “oh, but he is a barrister, has several degrees etc”…yes, and one of the most stupid (and ignorant) people I ever met was a former Sierra Leone diplomat, a High Commissioner to the UK when in London, and ambassador to some other state. That African had degrees from one of the most famous English universities, one from the Sorbonne, one from either Harvard or Yale (I forget).” Then I added, “Imagine Lammy as either Lord Chancellor or Attorney-General! Still, now that Keir Starmer is running what is left of Labour into the ground, such appointment is unlikely.”

Well, Lammy is still only Shadow Lord Chancellor, thank God. All the same, he is now both a member of the Privy Council and a Bencher of Lincoln’s Inn, my own old Inn, from which I was formally expelled, by default, after a pack of Jews procured my —wrongful— disbarment in 2016: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

Britain is now mainly a crazy, multikulti, mess.

Vigil

I am currently watching a British drama called Vigil: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vigil_(TV_series). Fairly well done, but sadly with flaws typical of the contemporary UK msm.

The most obvious box-tick is the number of blacks and browns in leading roles: the captain of the nuclear submarine Vigil is a black, while the medical officer on board is an (?) Indian woman. Ashore, about half the Scottish (Glasgow) police detectives are non-white, and of the two main MI5 officers in the drama, one is seemingly Pakistani or something else.

Another box-tick is that, of the two women police detectives, the older one, a grieving quasi-widow, has a lesbian affair with the other. Well, such things happen, and there are, no doubt, both Glasgow detectives and naval officers (and MI5 personnel) who are non-white. In such proportion, though? In every TV drama?

That kind of social engineering via TV drama is now ubiquitous: see my blog post from a few years ago https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/.

That propaganda is not aimed primarily at people of my age (65) but at young people and, indeed, children (whatever and whenever the “watershed” is supposed to be). It is basically subliminal normalization propaganda feeding into the screen of false “reality” promoting the “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan”: see https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi.

A few other points about Vigil caught my attention. The GRU officer caught in Glasgow was interviewed about a murder (in which he was the only obvious suspect) without a lawyer present (despite having asked for one), and apparently without having been cautioned, and the interview was plainly not being taped (as far as I could see). At least three serious breaches of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984, aka PACE. Not very good for a “police procedural” type of drama.

Again, the GRU [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GRU] officer under diplomatic cover, caught in Glasgow in activities “incompatible with his diplomatic status”, did not, on being caught, immediately proclaim his diplomatic status (and so immunity); neither did he demand to be released at once, or to have contacted for him the Russian Consulate, as a real one would have done.

Not that such “demands” are always treated respectfully. When I myself was arrested (or as the Egyptian army and secret police said repeatedly, “not arrested”) in Alexandria in 1998, and held for about 11 hours by Egyptian Army intelligence/security and then the Mukhabarat (secret police), I asked repeatedly for the British Consul, only to be told (also repeatedly) that I was “not arrested”, but just “answering a few questions“, or “a few more questions“; also, that “the Consul will be very busy…“, and “the Consul is only for the most serious cases…you do not want to be treated as a serious case, do you?“…

Well, if you put it like that

I should point out that I was in fact not a British (or other) intelligence officer, or agent for that matter, and was simply a tourist or visitor who had been the victim of “a series of unfortunate events”. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/03/07/when-i-was-not-arrested-in-egypt/.

Still, and despite the foregoing, Vigil is not bad, and I shall probably see that last episode today.

Quite. A silly fellow making a pointless and silly (and ahistorical) protest, but why should he not be allowed to do so? The present Home Secretary is an ever-more ballooning Indian woman of surpassing stupidity, incompetence, and ignorance (as well as being, effectively, an agent of Israel). Put that on your placard, you idiot!

I do not know what is more disturbing, that half-Jew office bully Raab is spouting “woke” nonsense, or that someone who has attended both Oxford and Cambridge universities, and is —even if ludicrously— presently Lord Chancellor, does not know the meaning of the word “misogyny”. Another sign of the times?

I suppose that one could take issue with the first part of Griffin’s tweet: it was not the State ownership of the means of production that crippled socialist economies, but the fact that the State, the political sphere if you like, operated companies etc, in other words made all the important decisions. Admittedly, in many such cases that will be the same as “ownership”.

It is noteworthy that Jews in the UK are among the most fervent supporters of Covid vaccination(s) and vaccines, the facemask nonsense, and all the repressive measures introduced by this crazed government of clowns since early 2020. I am not sure exactly why that should be, but it is a fact that I have noticed. Also, the pro-EU hard-core “Remainers” seem to be facemask zealots etc. Again, hard to see why, unless it is a wish to not have to think for themselves. Preparation of future karma?

Sometimes, I can see why people less polite than me want to kick in the heads of some members of the Parliamentary monkeyhouse… The sheer cheek of many MPs infuriates many members of the public and —in my view— rightly so.

Look at this cretin!

This is him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Bottomley. A total nonentity.

Admittedly, £81,000 is not a fortune these days, especially when taxable etc, but bearing in mind that average UK pay is only about £31,000 (and the median far less even than that, and less again if those dependent on State benefits and pensions are included), I doubt that many will think MPs are hard done by. Even less so when one considers how many have other sources of income, such as second jobs, “consultancy” “work”, money from scribbling or being TV talking heads etc; not to mention the very many who have large monies via inheritances.

Many MPs are also buy-to-let parasites.

In the end, MPs are volunteers. If they think that they are worth more than £81K p.a., let them go and get it on the open market. Few can do so, which is why so many are found sinecures in state employment, or in quangosw (via cronyism) when they lose their seats.

Street Cat Bob

I read the (first) book about Street Cat Bob about 7-8 years ago. A very touching story. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Bowen_(author).

I was unaware that Street Cat Bob had died (last year, it seems). I was, therefore, also unaware that a little statue had been commissioned in his honour. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-57855092.

The point made by James Bowen is also valid; that is that people deserve at least a second chance (as Street Cat Bob gave him).

Many people who read my blog may have gleaned that, at times, my life has been spent in fairly comfortable conditions: inter alia, living in a Little Venice villa, a penthouse in the former Soviet Union, a villa with a private beach in the Caribbean, a Cornish country house (presently on sale at £7 million) and, as a child, living mostly in good areas of South-East England and Sydney.

The above, however, is only part of the story. There have been far less comfortable situations. One of those was when I returned from living for a few months in Egypt in early 1998. My last salaried legal contract (in Kazakhstan) had ended not long before I went to Egypt. I ran out of money in London (I have never been very good at “bourgeois” budgeting), and acquired some travel money by selling my watch (a Rolex Seadweller; later I had others but at the time, only one).

On return from Egypt to the UK, promised contracts in various countries fell through one by one. I had really no money at all and, at first, nowhere even to stay.

Even after that was arranged (via Russian friends), the next few months were, to say the least, difficult. I walked a lot and, if I took the Underground, may sometimes have forgotten to pay the fare! Even food was in short supply. Certainly I lost quite a bit of weight!

Often I trudged disconsolately past Julie’s restaurant in Holland Park [https://www.juliesrestaurant.com/; https://www.standard.co.uk/reveller/restaurants/julies-restaurant-reopened-holland-park-london-a4230606.html] in the cold rain, stared at by the patrons behind the windows, seated in warmth and comfort…

My own previous visit there, a couple of years before, had been a bibulous occasion when my then girlfriend, swathed in furs and jewels, had insisted on driving her Mercedes home, (with me as passenger— I had no driving licence then), despite her being (at an educated guess) several times over the drink-drive limit. Terrifying. She nearly turned the very large and heavy car over at least once. Thankfully, at that very late (or early) hour, there was little traffic.

Life can certainly have its ups and downs.

Suffice to say that, though I never had to sleep on park benches or in cardboard boxes in the cold Spring of 1998, those three months with effectively no money were hard going…

Adolf Hitler knew the poorer aspects of pre-WW1 Vienna, and never forgot his experiences there.

People who have never known something of the peaks and troughs of existence are at a disadvantage when it comes to understanding people in higher and lower sections of society.

“Labour” (ZOG) news

German (ZOG) news

The international Jew-Zionist lobby is crowing at the prospect of a 96-y-o German woman being tried and (inevitably soon to be) convicted for having been a typist, at age 18, in a German camp in what is, now, Polish territory or, as the Germans say, “unter polnischer Verwaltung“.

“They” never reach the limits of their desire for “vengeance”, even on someone who was merely a young girl typing in an office.

I was interested to see that comments appended to the (typically pro-Zionist) Daily Mail “report” (propaganda): about 90%, maybe more, of the readers voting were in favour of the persecuted old woman.

So when can we expect 96 y-o American women who were 18-y-o typists at, say, Los Alamos in 1945, to be tried for “facilitating” the attacks at Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Never? Why not?…

…und so weiter…

More afternoon music

Some music I recall from when I lived in Australia aged 10-13 (late 1960s):

Vietnam was a constant; some of the young men in my father’s office had to do tours of duty in Vietnam (by reason of the SEATO Treaty); I recall being introduced to four of them at midnight one hot summer night, on Balmoral Beach (the nearest or easiest beach for my family). In prospect was the likelihood, not very pleasant, that I myself, at age 18 (September 1974), might eventually have to go.

As it happened, though, the war had ended by that time, and my family had anyway returned to the UK by Christmas 1970, so I never did have to track through the jungles of Indo-China.

Another constant of the years 1967-69 in Sydney was the hippie influence (in mainstream and commercialized form). I remember this, from 1967:

While —for once— I agree with Blairite talking head and scribbler, Dan Hodges, a crisis is usually, in the end, provoked by people and their actions, not by some underlying reality. If 30 million people engage in any behaviour, it changes the whole situation. Regardless of how many millions of gallons of fuel are being shipped, refined, distributed.

Look at 1914. There actually was no “need” for war. There was not even, before the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, much desire for it, not even by most of the militaristic German staff officers, nor by any but the most revanchiste politicians and generals in the French capital. However, once that fatal shot had been fired, once the tightly geared mass mobilization machines had started across Europe, the non-crisis was at once a real crisis. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobilization#Mobilization_in_World_War_I

Having said that, and as Hodges tweets, there is not much that the Cabinet of clowns can do to resolve, immediately, the crisis (whether there need be a “crisis” or not). In the longer term, training British drivers, and giving them decent terms and conditions, would seem to be the way forward, at least until automation and AI mean that human drivers are superfluous.

Unexpected

Who knows? It may be true…

The last comment reminds me of the story of the Neapolitan who visited London in the 1950s, and saw how newspaper sellers would go for a snack or a beer, leaving their wooden box and newspapers, their chair, and even their tin for coins, in the street. Operating on the honour system, they fully expected purchasers to leave the correct change. The Neapolitan tried it back in Naples, but when he returned, 10 minutes later, he discovered the newspapers, coins, chair and wooden box all gone.

Having said that, London would probably be little more honest than Naples these days.

Other tweets seen

Good to see.

I once wondered why the Palestinians of Gaza had never adapted the (no longer secret, and easily found) technology of the German V-1 rockets of the Second World War (an early “cruise missile”) to attack Israel, but probably their lack of interest was because the V-1, though very fast by 1944 standards, was a rather slow rocket by the standards of the late 20th, and 21st, centuries.

Even in 1944-45, the V-1’s speed (max. 400 mph) was insufficient to outpace the fastest British fighter planes, especially the Spitfire sometimes flying at, and even beyond, 600 mph: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-1_flying_bomb; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermarine_Spitfire#Speed_and_altitude_records.

The Spitfire pilots became proficient in shooting down V-1 flying bombs.

In other words, a modern Israeli jet would easily be able to destroy such ground-to-ground air weapons.

The other tactic used by Hamas in or from Gaza is the tunnel. The Israelis, and the Hamas operatives, play a deadly cat and mouse game in which the former try to find such tunnels (using high technology) and destroy them.

I imagine that the response of Hamas will be to dig deeper and deeper, far below the surface, where even high explosive and bunker-busting bombs and missiles will have little effect. The moment of maximum danger for such tunnellers would be when they excavate to the surface again (presumably in less-habited parts of Israel).

So far, the Hamas tunnels have not penetrated very far from the Gaza enclave itself, but one could imagine a tunnel going from Gaza, very deep underground, to central Israel, with the idea of infiltrating fighters deep into Israeli territory and then striking a strategic blow or series of blows. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_tunnel_warfare_in_the_Gaza_Strip.

The cost of building such tunnels must be enormous. Even the present type of tunnel, limited in range, must be very expensive to create.

I believe that a very obscure directorate of the pre-1991 KGB specialized in tunnelling, but I myself know next to nothing about its work.

Other noted tunnelling groups included the 1960s-1970s Uruguayan urban guerrilla group, the Tupamaros [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupamaros].

Merkel’s legacy

Merkel’s legacy? Germany as a dustbin. Words are superfluous; pictures tell the story better.

Germany is now not Germany at all, just as the UK is now scarcely Britain at all. I recall visiting both the Bundesrepublik (West Germany) and, though only once and briefly, the DDR (East Germany) in the 1980s. The western part of Germany had visibly declined when seen again in 2001. Now? Probably far worse.

Google the “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan”. That is the basis for much of what has been happening in Germany and across Europe, and even in places such as Australia and New Zealand.

Ha ha!

We know what is necessary, or what will be necessary, but by reason of repression on free speech in the UK, cannot say so publicly…

That idiot wants the police to be “representative” of “everyone” in Birmingham. Well, about (?) 5% of Birmingham residents are probably criminals of one sort or another. Should they be in the police? Should they march with pride? Never say never…

Alison Chabloz

Latest word from usually-reliable sources is that the persecuted singer-songwriter and socio-political satirist, Alison Chabloz, should be released from prison this coming Thursday, 30 September 2021, having been incarcerated for mocking or simply criticizing “the Chosen”.

Or vice-versa. The fact is that, and leaving rhetoric aside (if stupid Angela Rayner’s yelling can be termed “rhetoric”), both main System parties are, in policy terms, almost indistinguishable in practice.

Most British people are, however, still more interested, sadly, in whatever is happening in the latest braindead “soap”, or Strictly Come Dancing, or whatever the “British” (ha) team are doing in some sport or other.

Interesting film

https://odysee.com/@MariaOrsic:2/Beneath-Antarctica:a

Seems doubtful, but worth seeing. About 14 mins.

I recall an old lady I knew telling me that, with some friends from Switzerland, she visited (sometime in the 1990s) another friend, a former Waffen SS sergeant in Bavaria, who talked constantly about Hitler in Antarctica, submarines in 1945 going there, hollow Earth etc. They regarded him as having become very eccentric, though, and certainly did not believe any of it.

Would be good if there really were National Socialist legions in Antarctica ready to go into battle against the evils of the contemporary scene, but I have to doubt their existence.

Diary Blog, 24 September 2021, including good news on rewilding

Rewilding

Over the past decade, ideas I have had for a long time (rewilding, a “wildlife grid” etc) have become almost mainstream. I am glad to see it. Both charities and wealthy individuals are leading the way. People with fewer resources are also joining in, in various ways (by keeping part of their private gardens “wild”, by not using pesticides and herbicides etc), and their numbers count, bearing in mind that the UK has anything up to 10 million acres of private gardens.

That unhealthy-looking woman is Therese Coffey, of whom I have previously blogged: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/16/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-therese-coffey-story/.

As to BBC TV Question Time, I have not bothered to watch that rigged circus for years. Seems that last night featured the Jew fraudster and MP, Shapps; also, the System-approved black MP David Lammy, as well as Kate Andrews, the mouthpiece for System-“libertarian” views. She is American, Lammy Caribbean black, while Shapps is of course a Jew-Zionist.

In fact, that kind of terminally-tired 1940s or 1950s-style “Brains Trust” kind of show has little to offer now, especially when the “brains” have poor brains. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Brains_Trust.

The last politician or politician-manque on that show yesterday was one Munira Wilson. I admit that I had never heard of her. “Obscure” seems to best describe her. East African Asian, an ex-Muslim turned C of E Christian, and with a British husband: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munira_Wilson.

So, out of 5 panellists, only 1 was white British, namely one Richard Walker, the head of Iceland frozen foods, which was founded by his father, Malcolm Walker [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_Walker_(businessman)].

Seems that, as on previous occasions, the “outsider” (non-Westminster bubble) panellist was the most sensible. Walker was the only one, from the Question Time clips I have just seen, seemingly capable of “running a whelk stall”, though Iceland is rather bigger than that! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iceland_(supermarket).

Exactly. Now we see a similar phenomenon in the UK, as those who fight back, even with words, against Jewish-Zionist influence and control over our country, being called “far right” “extremists”, and in some cases prosecuted as “terrorists”, even without having done anything.

Near miss

While researching on Wikipedia today, I noticed that the now long-deceased aunt of a one-time girlfriend had once been one of the governors of the BBC. I knew that she had been a life peer, but not that she had been on the BBC Board of Governors. Saw a few other things about her that I did not previously know. In some respects an intellectual pioneer. She would have been interesting to talk to, but died in the Spring of 1981, before (though not long before) I met her niece. Pity.

The new “unacceptable face of capitalism”

Don’t mention the Gypsies!

“A pair of female thieves dubbed the “Rolex Rippers” have seemingly struck again after a wealthy elderly man had his watch stolen….

On Tuesday, the man in his 80s became the latest victim of two women who are targeting men in affluent areas and close to exclusive golf clubs across southern England.

The theft is believed to be at least the 21st incident, with the duo, thought to be in their 20s, targeting men in Dorset, Hampshire, Surrey, Gloucestershire and Sussex.

In many cases, the women have posed as charity workers with clipboards and have stolen watches from their victims without them realising as they sign a petition.

However, other times they have been less subtle and simply ripped the expensive timepieces off the men’s wrists.

This time the pair approached the man outside his home in Links Road, Poole, which is next to £2,000-a-year Parkstone Golf Club, at lunchtime on Tuesday.

They asked him to sign a petition and then one of the women thanked and hugged him. He did not notice until a few minutes later that his watch had been taken.

‘Be mindful of being approached’

A spokesman from Dorset Police said: “It is believed that these females are responsible for a series of similar thefts across Dorset this year and the public should be mindful of being approached in this manner or engaging in conversation with the individuals.”

The pair are believed to have struck in Dorset at least seven times before in Poole, Wimborne, Wareham, Ferndown, Highcliffe and Poundbury.

Hampshire Police said they have at least 10 victims, and two brothers, aged 85 and 91, were targeted 80 miles apart in Gloucestershire and Surrey.

Both women are said to be aged in their 20s or 30s and between 5ft 2ins and 5ft 9ins tall. They both have dark hair and Eastern European accents although some victims have believed them to be Spanish.

The spate of robberies are thought to have begun on May 19 at Stoneham Golf Club near Southampton.” [Daily Telegraph].

I am glad, in a sense, that I no longer have (or have the means to have) Rolex watches. Mine were all Rolex Seadwellers. Now I no longer have need of any watch. Relative poverty, but also relative freedom…

The new multikulti Australia— a “woke”, dystopian, biosecurity police state. I would never have believed it. More? See below:

More Memory Lane

Oddly enough, I was just looking, not long ago, on Google maps and Google Earth, at the area of Sydney, Australia, where I lived, in the late 1960s, for 2-3 years as a child of 10-13 (Ellalong Road, Mosman/Cremorne and, for the first 6 months or so, Wyong Road, Mosman). Also, the area around the nearby little school that I attended at first (Middle Harbour PS, at Macpherson Street, Mosman; I was later at North Sydney Boys’ High, a few miles away, for 7-8 months).

Many changes. I notice that quite a few roads, including Ellalong, have been made into dead ends to prevent through traffic. A good move. Other changes? Well, quite a few houses there in the late 1960s have been demolished and replaced by much larger ones; larger houses, smaller gardens. Google Earth shows that almost every house in that neighbourhood now has a swimming pool. In 1967-69, not many did.

I notice a change in street vegetation. Far more small trees and flowering bushes, as far as I can recall. Fewer palm trees, though. There seems to have been, perhaps, a move to native species, and to more green/flowering trees, though the tall imperial palms near my old school are still there.

Overall, I should say that that neighbourhood is rather more scenic now, because of the flowering abundance, though with far more cars, both moving and parked on the street (if I remember aright, street parking was unusual when I lived there). Looking at the pictures, an impression of greater wealth overall, perhaps.

That was also true of Balmoral Beach (which was the nearest convenient beach to us, about 5-10 mins in the car). Many cafes, and a more manicured look generally.
