A side-effect of workers moving out of care work to other work would be that care work would then only attract people with no other choices, forced to do care work by being, for example, pressured by the DWP.

Interesting video, rather idealistic. If the British Empire still existed and still ruled, the Arab-Jew problem in Palestine would be contained, and Israel would not be a centre of a manipulative web across the world.

I thought Elon Musk too intelligent to buy into a massive scam such as Twitter.

Making the best of it

That report reminded me of when I was first in Almaty, Kazakhstan (in 1996 and 1997). I lived on one of the main boulevards, Prospekt Lenina. There were frequent power cuts or, as the Americans say, “outages”.

I bought some candles for my 12th-floor Soviet penthouse apartment, and that was OK, though I nearly got stuck in the lift one day when there was a power cut the moment I stepped out of that lift, having returned from my office. The power did not return until about midday the next day, so that was a lucky miss for me.

In fact, my area of the city was not so badly affected as others, being within the “Presidentsky” district, where the then Presidential Palace and major embassies were located. Usually, the power cuts involved one or two areas at a time, with other areas continuing to receive electrical supply. Where I lived was certainly given preferential treatment, but still lost power fairly often.

I remember well that I was due to dine with three people one evening at a small and little-patronized Georgian restaurant in a quiet lane not too far from my home, a place almost in the countryside.

When the time came to meet those people, I was sitting in the empty restaurant. They arrived together, a young American in the Peace Corps, and two local Russian girls who were employed by an American organization; I had met them previously.

No sooner had they sat down than the electricity was cut off. The owner of the place, a Georgian lady called Bella, hurried to put out quite a few candles.

In the restaurant, with its wooden walls and lack of traffic noise (the lane outside was deserted), this created a kind of 19th century environment. One of the Russian girls started to play the piano which was there. Mainly Chopin.

In the candlelight, it was like being in a scene adapted from Chekhov or some other pre-revolutionary author; perhaps a country estate circa 1860 and in a Russia not yet hit by modern warfare or the shocks of violent revolution. Charmant

That evening has always stayed with me.

Very clever. Funny, but also sad and also true…

Still slightly favourable on defence and “terrorism”? How? Why? The armed forces seem incapable of stopping migration invasion across the Channel, and are too small to stop any conventional invasion. The present ZOG (Zionist Occupation Government) is pledged to continue to waste billions funnelling money and arms to the Jew-Zionist regime in Kiev.

What about “terrorism”? The Muslims are not taking over the British cities via “terrorism” but via their birth-rate. The Jews continue to send their teenage children to Israel, there to be trained in the use of firearms, as well as in techniques of streetfighting, but are not even monitored (much) by the UK Security Service on their return to the UK.

James Cleverly, proud possessor of a McDegree (in Hospitality Management) from a McUniversity, and who has never done much else (except work his way up in the TA) drones on. That half-caste is Foreign Secretary, believe it or not. This country is so screwed, and in so many ways.

I must do a blog article, in my Deadhead MPs series, about Cleverly.

Thinking about who would vote “Conservative” now.

Some would. People whose income is well above the norm, perhaps; those on £150,000+, and who are also voting out of purely personal self-interest . Then —the largest group— those who want to vote specifically against Labour, and see a Con vote as the only effective way to do it.

Are there any other groups of “Conservative” voters now? I think not. The last 12 years have seen no effective policy or action on the immigration problem, whether in general or specifically re. the cross-Channel migration-invasion. As for that trad Con strongpoint, “law and order”, we have seen police numbers cut, courts (in the hundreds) closed down to save money, a huge backlog of trials, and legal aid cuts which have effectively denied millions the right to access the legal system.

Yes, a lot can happen in the two years before a general election has to be held, but it cannot really be said that Liz Truss has any popular mandate, and things look likely to slide even further from here: utility bills, mortgage payments, whatever may hit the UK by reason of the wrongheaded anti-Russia sanctions and military adventurism.

Even the mainly self-interested “grey vote” of pensioners and those nearing State Pension age might pause before placing their crosses next to the Conservative Party candidate, now that it has emerged that the young Liz Truss actually wanted to abolish the State Pension, and who intends to slash other benefits relied on by pensioners.

I assessed Rory Stewart in 2019, when he was a candidate for the Conservative Party leadership. I also updated it, and continue to do so. A large number of people have read that assessment. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/03/will-rory-stewart-mp-be-prime-minister/.

Radio 4 Today Programme— Liz Truss interview

Heard an interview with Liz Truss; Nick Robinson as interviewer.

My impressions: Liz Truss sounds completely without character. Her voice is a near-monotone (my own thought as I listened was “soulless“). Not in the slightest compelling, or even slightly interesting. A not very pleasant droning, slightly hectoring noise. Classless…not obviously “educated”, and certainly not in any way “upper crust” but, at the same time, not a voice coming from the popular masses either.

As to the substance of what Liz Truss said, I should say that she came across as someone saying nothing of any weight whatsoever. Bland or bald statements of general intent, meaning nothing. Nick Robinson tried to get Liz Truss to pledge to one or two specifics, but without much success.

Nick Robinson encouraged Liz Truss to answer his questions, but without success. In the popular phrase, I do not detect a lot going on in her head.

Liz Truss sounded like someone whose level was, at best, a county council, not being a Prime Minister or anywhere near that elevation.

I predicted on the blog, when Liz Truss was selected/elected as Conservative Party leader, that I would be surprised if she survived past Christmas 2022, and astonished if she survived in post past Spring 2023. I see no reason to change that view.

Suella Braverman

Saw a short piece on the TV news featuring Suella Braverman. Britain now seems to specialize in elevating, from total mediocrity, persons like this. “British” politics elevates a Suella Braverman from obscurity to Attorney-General and now Home Secretary. The same circumstances, more or less, elevated that other waste of space, Priti Patel, to the same Cabinet office. We now also have James Cleverly posing as Foreign Secretary. Another non-white. Only stupid Liz Truss is even English.

Suella Braverman seems to get her view of the country’s social security system from trash TV shows such as Benefits Britain.

This is a car crash of a government that surely cannot last long. Even the Conservative MPs are mostly unhappy about it.

I do not know any of the background to the above tweet-thread, but such occurrences (citizens being harassed by the police acting as a poundland KGB at the instigation of malicious individuals or groups) have become all too common in the Britain of recent years. My own experiences have included:

Malicious Jews and others make false allegations with near-impunity, thus wasting the time and money of the true victims (the people questioned or even arrested by police), and also that of the police forces concerned.

Globalism at work…again. That, and a country (the UK) where people are now taught from childhood to be ashamed of their race, culture, history and former Empire. Also, the fact that much of the UK economy is in the hands of various kinds of foreigners, in this case Turkish, but more often Chinese, Jews, whatever.

Remarkable, coming from a long-term Con mouthpiece and supporter.

The time is coming when free speech, open debate etc will be banned by stealth and Lilliputian ties. To a large extent, in the UK and elsewhere, it has already happened— in the msm, in publishing, in academia etc. All areas, incidentally, where the Jew-Zionists often hold sway.

Frightening. Also, rather facile.

They are also the most highly-educated generation on record. This year, a record number of 435,000 18-year-olds in Britain —like my students— will arrive on campus. And this higher education, for many, helps to explain why, alongside the slightly older Millennials, they are also the most socially liberal generation in history.

[Matt Goodwin blog].

The idea that attending a “university” (whether an ancient one or a 5-minute-old “McUniversity”) makes the attendee “highly-educated” is risible, looking at most of the graduates, let alone undergraduates.

Consistently, Zoomers are the most supportive of Britain re-joining the European Union, the most likely to think immigration is having positive effects, and to voice strong support for rising diversity in all its forms. When I asked my students to name the most pressing problems facing the country today they either said climate change or racism. Nobody, interestingly, mentioned the economy.

[Matt Goodwin blog].

Actually, his students sound like complete idiots. Obviously spouting the simplistic ideas pumped into them, for about 13 years, by semi-educated teachers, or via the BBC and other mass media..

Many of these Zoomer graduates are also coming of age amid what philosopher John Gray has called ‘hyper-liberalism’ —and what others call ‘left modernism’, ‘progressive authoritarianism’, or ‘woke’ politics. While its supporters are often driven by good intentions, this is a more dogmatic, moralistic, and polarising brand of politics which promotes much looser definitions of terms such as ‘racism’ and much stricter, if not oppressive, speech codes that are used to try and curtail discrimination.”

Personally, I suspect we are on the cusp of an entirely new cultural revolution in the West which will not only be driven by demands for more radical economic change but far more radical cultural and social change, too. And the Zoomers, as they trickle out of the universities into the institutions, will be in the driving seat of that revolution.

[Matt Goodwin blog].

Well, it may be possible to turn the current in a more social-national direction. If not, those people will not be required.

…and all of [see above] Matt Goodwin’s eagerly “woke” students can then clap the “diversity” —and their own “tolerance”— as a torrent of cheap non-white labour continues to flood in, rendering their useless degrees about as valuable as a used bus ticket.

I am happy to see the fake “Conservative” Party about to go down the plughole, hopefully for good. Downside is, of course, that equally-fake and wrongheaded Labour will thereby grow stronger, in a basically rigged and binary system.

Still, if the Con Party can be reduced to somewhere below 200 MPs (1997-2005 levels), perhaps to as few as 100, that would be a good start to breaking up the whole rotten system.

Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get even worse

Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get even worse.’

“Alt-right” schoolboy and “controlled opposition” GB News talking head, Tom Harwood, reports from the Con Party Conference.

What strikes me is how few delegates and visitors there are. Only the central part of the hall full. Would assess it as no more than 500 people. Not many, considering that the Conservative Party has 357 MPs.

Meanwhile, a Spectator scribbler thinks that the market should rule:

…though he is scarcely uncritical of the past 12 years of Con government: https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/what-do-the-tories-have-to-show-from-their-time-in-power-.

Reverting to his energy price theme, he writes (I have highlighted the key fact):

The core problem is that without Russian gas there isn’t enough energy to go around Europe. It’s a problem that has been compounded by the fact that half of France’s nuclear reactors have been offline this summer and Norway, a major supplier of hydroelectric power, has had record low rainfall. With limited supply and high demand, people are bidding against one another for energy use. Prices will rise, and keep rising, until demand is reduced sufficiently to match supply. That’s if the market is allowed to function.Part of the problem is that the Conservative party is just the Labour party on a five-year lag...

A far better idea would be to scrap the price cap entirely, letting households pay the full cost of their energy use while doling out massive quantities of cash to those on lower incomes or with higher needs. This would preserve price signals and the incentive to use less, while also giving people enough money to keep their homes warm.

Instead, Liz Truss is apparently planning to freeze household bills at or below £1,971, well below the actual market price of supply; the wholesale price alone for October-December is expected to be £2,491. The Times carries a slightly different version of the story where the cap is allowed to rise to £2,500 – still below the total cost of electricity.

[Sam Ashworth-Hayes, in the Spectator].

I agree with his first sentence, and have been —probably pointlessly— blogging (for 5 years) and tweeting (until the Jew fanatics had me expelled from Twitter in 2018) about how the UK should be getting closer to Russia and, indeed, leaving NATO in return for, (among many advantages) getting cheap or even (it is possible) near-free gas from Russia, which would solve our energy problem overnight.

Instead of which, “Boris”-idiot, and now the stupid Liz Truss “ho”, have been giving billions in various ways to the Jew dictatorship in Kiev, and even threatening Russia with nuclear attack via “our” (controlled in reality by the USA) Trident nuclear submarines.

In fact, that Spectator article is worth reading in full. Ashworth-Hayes concludes by looking at the wider background:

Part of the problem is that the Conservative party is just the Labour party on a five-year lag; once Starmer suggested freezing prices, the blue team were inevitably going to follow along at some point. But a bigger problem is that the Tories are increasingly the party of the non-working and economically inactive.

The Tory vote is old. Pensioners don’t work and don’t pay much in taxes. They certainly don’t benefit from investments that pay off 20 years down the line. They’re very happy to rack up massive bills in the present day and pass them off to their grandchildren. And they vote in massive numbers.

This gives Conservative politicians strong incentives to find ways to take from the young and the future to give to the old and the present-day. It is toxic in the long term – we have a dysfunctional housing market, twisted to prop up pensioner assets, and high taxes to fund pensioner healthcare and pensions that are destroying family formation and living standards among young people. This is the only way the current Conservative party can see itself clinging on to power. Changing the prime minister isn’t enough to change that.

Well, there is much truth in all that, and if the “grey vote” wakes up to the fact that Liz Truss —albeit in 1995, aged 20, so be it— suggested scrapping the State Pension entirely, then the Con Party will rapidly pass into history.

The one demographic that votes Con heavily and actually votes is the (mainly) English “grey vote”, however defined (I am really talking about the 60+ age group). If that goes, the Conservative Party also goes.

Well-regarded“? That idiot who, after a few too many glasses of whisky, shouted out that the Scottish regiments had beaten Russia in the Crimean War (according to him) and so the British Army could beat Russia today. 170 years later.

Britain has 60-200 nuclear weapons and a land area of 93,600 square miles. Russia has about 6,000 nuclear weapons and a land area of 6,601,000 square miles (about 71 times the size of the UK).

As to the “conference”, looks as though only a few dozen people are bothering to do more than drink in bars.

Is there anything the Jews will not complain about? The fact is that Schindler’s Ark, the novel (yes, novel) on which the film Schindler’s List was based, is a work of fiction: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schindler%27s_Ark. The fact that Jews have “edited” the Wikipedia entry for Schindler’s List, the film of the book, to refer to the book as a “non-fiction novel” is meaningless, as is that term itself, the more usual term being “faction”.

The famous “faction” novel by Frederick Forsyth, The Day of the Jackal, is not “non-fiction” just because a few characters in it (eg President de Gaulle) actually existed. The book is still basically fiction; so is Schindler’s Ark and the film based on it.

As a matter of fact, Schindler’s Ark was not even written by someone who experienced Germany or Poland during WW2; it was written by an Australian, Thomas Keneally, who, at the material time, was 5-10 years old and who only left Australia for the first time in 1968. Schindler’s Ark was written and published in 1982. Keneally seems to have visited Poland in or about 1980, not long before the novel was published.

Many of his novels are reworkings of historical material, although modern in their psychology and style

It kept the interest. The casting was remarkably good, headed by a performance by Kenneth Branagh that was amazingly like the real “Boris”, to look at. Other leading characters were also well-portrayed.

I felt that it could have been harder-hitting in some areas. Still, good overall.

That Tony Parsons tweet shows the gulf between the msm cosmopolitan talking heads, scribblers, entertainers etc, and the vast bulk of the British people.

Britain needs a new kind of social-national movement.

The war can be brought to a halt by the West/NATO/NWO simply cutting off supplies of money, arms and ammunition to the forces of the Kiev regime. The fake state and failed state of post-1991 Ukraine will then crumble within weeks if not days.

If escalation continues, there will eventually be a strategic nuclear exchange between NATO/NWO and Russia, after which anything could happen.

It can still be stopped.

Not a complete list; don’t forget “create the basis for a future super-race” and “eliminate Jew-Zionist exploitation” etc.

Reading some of the tweets by hard-core supporters of the “Bootstrap Cook”, it is clear that quite a few of them are mentally-odd people desperate to “support” (even if only via “slacktivism” and/or “clicktivism”) something vaguely (as they imagine)”progressive”.

For example, I saw some tweets by an elderly Swedish woman resident in the UK, possibly an aged lesbian. People like that just want to “believe”, a bit like the British supporters of Stalin in the 1930s. They do not want dissonant facts to disturb their belief-system.

For once, I agree with the Jesuit anti-pope, but in this situation, one might reiterate Stalin’s rhetorical question, “how many divisions has the Pope?” (referring to Pius XII).

A pretty silly tweet from former ITN talking head Alastair Stewart. Talk about autres temps, autre moeurs— as a student, he was elected to the NUS on an extreme Marxist ticket. Just another hypocrite of that type, I suppose, like Tony Blair and others.

Imagine thinking that someone is OK financially just because that person has a telephone or laptop computer! I believe that it is virtually impossible even to claim State benefits, let alone get or hold down a job, without them. Stewart is only 4 years older than me, but in his tweets really shows his age, I think.

So a horrible little Jewish “oddity”, who has supported political selfishness for decades, was shouted at and supposedly assaulted. Quite funny but, more seriously, when you trample on people’s lives and rights, expect some pushback. I expect that other MPs will be watching such incidents with interest.

Liz Truss wanted to scrap State Pension and Child Benefit

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/sep/30/early-liz-truss-comments-on-scrapping-benefits-stoke-fears-of-further-cuts

It has emerged that the young Liz Truss, aged 20 in 1995, wanted to actually get rid of, inter alia, the State Pension.

All very well for her gophers to say that her views have matured since then, but who would trust this bitch, really?

It is only the pensioner or “grey” vote that has kept the so-called “Conservative” Party in power for the past 12 years. Now, it seems that Liz Truss, woolly-head Kwarteng and the rest of the present simply ridiculous Cabinet are about to throw pensioners under a bus. However, those over-65s have a sting in their tail. Their votes may not go to Labour (or anywhere else) but even mass abstention would finish the Conservative Party.

The latest opinion polls put the Conservatives on about 20%, with Labour well over 50%.

Of course, Labour is a poor choice, but for most voters, an election in the UK is a choice of evils. The Conservatives have just got to the point where not only have they lost all credibility, but where very many people hate them and in fact fear them. Far more than in 2010.

If the “grey vote” abandons the Conservative Party, there is actually no other demographic of any real size that can keep the party in more than dormant existence. It simply does not deserve to exist any more.

If there were a credible social-national party, it could rise up as far and as fast as did the NSDAP in the 1929-1932 period.

What amazes me about Liz Truss is that she must know that, at best, only a fifth of the people support her, and that about 80% if not 90% of the people are going to start hurting badly pretty soon, yet she seems to believe that she has some kind of entitlement to carry on with her package of wrecking policies, come what may, and without even the rough mandate of a general election behind her.

I am old enough to remember the Poll Tax riots of 1990 (though I saw them at a distance, on TV news in the United States). The population is now generally more quiescent (as witness the “panicdemic” compliance) but this might just be bigger than the Poll Tax, if people start hurting enough.

Liz Truss might have to “double and triple the guard”, before someone makes a —shall we say?— very personal and very effective “protest”.

Police priorities

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11250119/Police-catching-criminals-not-involving-Twitter-chief-constable-warns.html

Police should spend more time catching criminals than involving themselves in ‘spats on Twitter‘ and attempts at ‘inclusion’ like dancing on duty, a chief constable has warned. 

Andy Marsh, who has been head of the College of Policing since September 2021, said forces should prioritise reversing exceptionally low rates of solving crimes.

The guidance comes as police officers have repeatedly been warned over dancing on duty at events such as the Notting Hill festival and pride parades. 

It also follows comments from new Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who told chiefs to spend less time on ‘diversity’ and concentrate on fighting crime. 

The police executive, who was chief constable of Avon and Somerset and Hampshire, said: ‘Our new guidance on managing non-crime hate incidents, for example, is very clear: The police should not be involving themselves in spats on Twitter. 

‘It is not where the public want the police to be. We cannot pick sides on contested social issues…”

[Daily Mail]

Not before time. In particular, certain police forces (Essex, Derbyshire, Devon & Cornwall, Gloucestershire etc) have allowed themselves to be manipulated and brainwashed by the malicious Jew-Zionist pressure group calling itself “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, which pretends to be a large, important, influential organization, but in reality consists of a few dozen fanatical Jews obsessed by supposed “anti-Semitism”, and focussed also on defending the very tarnished reputation of the Israeli state.

Russia

Russia is in turmoil mainly because it lost its ideology when socialism collapsed around 1989. Yeltsin and his Jew kleptocracy could offer nothing to most Russians, and robbed them blind. Putin gave stability and a semblance of national dignity, but offered no new ideology, just Great Russian or “Muscovite” nationalism, a smattering of Russian Orthodox religion, and a nod or two to the partly-discredited Soviet past.

Only when Russia discovers its new ideology will it rediscover its soul, or vice versa. With that will come cohesion, and then unstoppable power.

Falling pound

We have seen the currency news reported as if it was some unexpected event suddenly falling from the sky. In fact, quite a few people (including me) have been predicting it for at least 2 years.

The whole nonsense around the “pandemic” (panicdemic) led to the UK government throwing around money like a drunken sailor, while closing down much of the economy for 1-2 years. Result— misery.

Yes, having a woolly-headed n****r as Chancellor of the Exchequer, a ridiculous half-caste nincompoop as Foreign Secretary, and above all a stupidly ignorant careerist woman as (posing as) Prime Minister, all triggered this alarming collapse in the value of sterling, but beyond all that there is the strategic question.

Britain was part of a trading bloc. Now it is alone in those terms, and the limited trade deals with Australia, Singapore etc cannot replace the main relationship with the EU. I myself favoured Brexit for several reasons, but it had to be handled properly. It never was. The governments of the past 7 years have made no serious attempt to make Brexit work properly.

It is clear that international forces look at the UK, see it being invaded by armies of breeding non-whites, see the UK’s continuing low productivity, see the lack of a sustainable forward-looking plan, and are running away…

To what extent the situation amounts to an attempt to collapse British society further, in order to further the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan throughout Europe, is an open question.

45p in the £ tax

The Liz Truss “government” is still defending the reduction in top-rate tax to 40p in the £. The argument is that the reduction will actually result in more tax coming in, in the end. Maybe, maybe not, but what it does do, immediately, is destroy any sentiment (however fake) that “we are all in this together”, i.e. social cohesion, as the highest paid are given a tax break at the very same time that most people are struggling.

Tax experts, economists etc may well argue that inflation hitting the poor and “middle” is not the same field of argument as a tax break for the rich and affluent. Tell that to the poor and “middle” of society. After all, they are, overwhelmingly, the voters.

So woolly-head Kwasi, as MP, was also getting £20,000 a year for doing very little but being on the payroll of Odey’s outfit?

Looks as though Odey’s bet paid off. A few bungs of £10,000 every 6 months, and Odey has made millions, maybe hundreds of millions, out of it.

…and all people do is tweet, or blog, about it…

Once more, I regret the absence in the UK of any credible — indeed any — social-national party. If my circumstances were different, I would cast caution to the winds and create one myself. Not yet, anyway.

So the storm of madness gathers, with Western (NWO) states, generals, suppposed “experts” all offering nuanced views on “proportionate response” to any Russian tactical nuclear strike in Ukraine (a failed “state”— corrupt, and under Jew-Zionist dictatorship— that has only existed since 1991, and with which the UK has had no treaty or other links).

War games played by the staff colleges of leading powers since the 1960s all came to the same conclusion: any first use of strategic (or even tactical) nuclear weapons in an exchange between NATO and (pre-1991) the Warsaw Pact, i.e. Russia, resulted in an all-out nuclear war.

The question now is whether NATO powers (mainly USA and UK) would attack Russia with strategic nuclear weapons if Russia attacks Ukraine with tactical nuclear weapons. It would be mad. Even within Europe, you could kiss goodbye to, inter alia, London and Paris, for a start. Still want to come up to play?

In fact, Russia might respond with an all-out attack whatever weapons and tactics NATO were to use directly against Russia.

This is not our fight. Steer clear.

Finally, without denigrating Bob Seely, a Conservative MP who was in the British Army, he did serve mostly as a sergeant, so was not concerned directly at that time with high strategy; he did receive a commission later: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Seely.

Seely has also studied these questions academically, and been a journalist (his family owns a large chunk of the Isle of Wight), but are you willing to bet your shirt, your home, or your life on that?

I do not trust journalists, System politicians, or academics specializing in “national security”, strategic studies etc. I do not even trust generals.

Once the UK, USA or any other NATO power (I doubt whether France would get involved, in fact) attacks Russia directly (including Crimea), that’s it. World War Three will be launched. Russia will launch, regardless of the motives, the nuances, the “messages” being sent etc, and we shall be lucky to live through it (if that would even be lucky).

Britain is becoming a very strange country, on the one hand a nuclear power with all kinds of advanced technology, on the other hand a country where millions of its own citizens rely on foodbanks, millions more on State benefits, a country invaded daily by invaders in small boats as well as “legally” (and who are then housed in advance of actual British people). A country the currency of which shows signs of crashing.

Still, when the UK government is headed by a stupidly ignorant woman who only became an MP on her back, and when the Chancellor of the Exchequer is a woolly-headed n****r whose previous jobs included being a gopher at hedge funds, as well as a newspaper columnist…

Unexpected event

I visited the only fairly local supermarket this evening, a Waitrose branch. Outside the entrance to the building, a makeshift medical bed, like a large sleeping bag. Several staff were tending to the occupant, an elderly person. There were medic-looking cases or bags around, presumably from the first-aid room.

I did not like to stare, or interfere, in view of the fact that the incident was under control, but found out from one of the staff inside that someone had tripped over and was unable to get up. An ambulance had been called some 2 hours previously, but had not yet arrived. Two hours!

When I left, half an hour later, with my shopping, the patient was still there, still on the ground, and a member of staff had even moved up a large square parasol/umbrella from the Waitrose Cafe, to shield the person from a shower.

As I pushed my shopping to my vehicle, a large new Bentley passed by. Like something from a satirical sketch about Britain in 2022: if you are lucky, you drive off in a large new Bentley, if not so lucky you lie on a pavement, dependent on “the kindness of strangers”, until the NHS can organize itself to get around to you.

Eventually, I drove out. The patient was still lying, waiting and, needless to add, no-one was standing around clapping…

Britain 2022, where an ambulance takes hours to reach you.

Meanwhile, in some seaside resort, the pathetic remnants of the Labour Party were all going through the motions of praising “our NHS” etc, as they always do. Still, I suppose that the next General Election is now, rather surprisingly, suddenly theirs to lose.

So much for centuries of Irish nationalism! Meanwhile, the pseudo-nationalists of Sinn Fein go down on one knee for the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense at a time when Ireland has been invaded by non-whites.

The point is that the banks and others, such as PayPal, are now taking it upon themselves to decide that this account [i.e. this customer] is OK and can therefore continue to have banking services, but that that account [that customer] is not OK, because that second person, individual or organization, is not signed up to the System agenda, meaning, inter alia, “Covid” panicdemic, “vaccine” for Covid, multiracialism, the multikulti society, mixed-race populations, “refugees welcome” nonsense, “trans” nonsense, “holocaust” nonsense and fake history…you name it.

More about “the Harry formerly known as Prince” and the “royal” Mulatta

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11246567/Explosive-new-book-pits-Palace-aides-Sussex-Survivors-Club-against-narcissistic-Meghan.html

Still, from the totally self-centred Ayn Rand point of view, Meghan Mulatta has “played a blinder”. Look at it. Someone brought up in modestly-comfortable circumstances in California, and who had a few years of television success as an actress in one particular drama series (pay around £300,000 p.a. gross in UK money), someone who was married to an American Jew film producer for 18 months (and then not-married to a TV chef for another year or two), but who has rescued her fortunes by attaching herself to a quite likely mentally-disturbed and certainly rather thick British princeling, and is reportedly worth several hundred million dollars now.

That’s the Mulatta— on the make; an adventuress worthy of the pen of Thackeray. What, though, of “the Harry formerly known as Prince”? He is always photographed in the shadow of the Mulatta. I have noted in past years his obvious emotional or mental problems, and he has been fortunate in that the Mulatta and her behaviour do take much flak which otherwise might come his way. It seems that his own behaviour is often not polite or pleasant (a problem the Royal Family in general has always had, with the exception of the late Queen and, to a lesser extent, Charles).

This whole “right royal” nonsense must now come to an end. After all, without the “Prince” bit (and all the money), would Harry be more than a not-very-bright junior officer, destined never to rise above captain, or possibly major? He might be something like a driving instructor or, funds permitting, a farmer.

Does Britain really need a “royal family”? I think not. The death of the late Queen has surely drawn a line under that part of history.

As for the Harry and Meghan show, once they are back in California permanently, interest will slowly fade, and they will fill the niche once occupied by Edward Windsor and Mrs Simpson.

I do not think that they will divorce, though. After all, the Mulatta is still a duchess, nominally, and she may find that (and the whole UK royal connection) useful (though I note the reported anger of the couple that they were not to be entitled “Prince and Princess” under the new Charles III regime).

In a way, I feel a little sorry for Harry, married to that narcissistic, wheedling, demanding creature. Royal Married with Children (as I prophesied years ago).

I do not feel very sorry for him, though. After all, he is now 38 (she is 41), has had more privilege than almost anyone else in the UK, and lives in luxury. He should grow up.

I feel more sorry for the millions of British people unable to heat their homes or feed their families as the Royal Cuck and Mulatta sun themselves on the Californian coast.

A more severe case, arguably, than that of Meghan Markle.

The USA is not alone in having hysterical people, usually women. However, I was once, over 30 years ago, on the bus into Manhattan, when such an incident occurred.

The express buses in my part of New Jersey (near the Jersey Shore) mostly went from the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan to quite far south, Toms River (halfway between Manhattan and Atlantic City). About 10 stops in all. My local stop was the last before Manhattan, going in the other direction. About a one-hour journey or slightly shorter.

I got on such a bus in late afternoon. The bus was quite full. I was the only passenger getting on.

After 45 mins, as we reached the Lincoln Tunnel entrance (to go under the Hudson), the two teenage Jewish boys who had been whispering, and smirking over their shoulders at a fat black woman with a white male companion (wearing a Western jacket and hat) a few rows back, got a shock as the black woman suddenly stood up and started yelling about how she had had enough and was not going to take it any more and how the Jewish teenagers should burn in hell. She however subsided after that, and the rest of the journey concluded in relative peace.

Sadly, even the UK now has many hysterical people and, indeed, many noisy ones, of which many, though far from all, are non-white.

Late historical note

Just saw this, about Canada in the Second World War:

On 27 April 1942, a plebiscite was held on the question, “Are you in favour of releasing the Government from any obligations arising out of any past commitments restricting the methods of raising men for military service?” In Quebec, the Ligue pour la Défense du Canada was founded to campaign for the “No” side under the slogan Jamais, Jamais…a dit M. Lapointe, a reference to King’s Quebec lieutenantErnest Lapointe, who had died of cancer in November 1941 and was fiercely opposed to sending the Zombies overseas.[35] The Ligue pour la Défense du Canada united the entire spectrum of political opinion in Quebec; some of its most effective speakers were André LaurendeauHenri BourassaJean Drapeau and a young Pierre Trudeau.[30]La Ligue pour la Défense du Canada professed to speak for all of Canada in opposing conscription, but its French-Canadian nationalist message had little appeal outside of French Canada.[36] Reflecting the quasi-fascist mood of the nationalist intelligentsia of Quebec, speakers for the League often expressed approval of Vichy France, citing its Révolution nationale as a model for Quebec, and expressed a “disturbing anti-Semitic tendency”.[36] [“disturbing“…ha ha]. One rally for the League in Montreal ended with speakers blaming Canada’s Jewish community for dragging the country into a war with Nazi Germany that did not concern French-Canadians. The event almost degenerated into a pogrom, with attendees beating up Jews on the streets of Montreal and smashing windows of Jewish shops; only the prompt intervention of the Montreal police put an end to the violence.”[36]

While it is traditional for students to be impecunious, this is just ridiculous.

The “Orange Revolution” of 2005, and the 2014 re-run, were just Jew-Zionist and CIA operations (NWO/ZOG, if you like). The “popular” facade was a pantomime, just like the one that removed Ceausescu in Romania in 1989 (notwithstanding that he well deserved it), a “revolution” so badly choreographed that crowds turned out in Bucharest just to watch the play.

Stray thoughts about Rishi Sunak

A couple of years ago, as he threw, with abandon, golden sesterces to the plebs, Rishi Sunak was the conquering hero of the hour for the UK msm. The consequences of shutting down much of the economy for 1-2 years seemed to be a mystery to him and to the “experts” (medical, economic and whatever).

“Furlough” payments (a salary paid to people in order that they would be able to sit in their houses eating pizza, and drinking too much, for months and months…), “loans” and free payments to businesses (many fraudulent), huge amounts paid out for useless and pointless NHS “PPE” stuff, £38 BILLION paid out for a useless “test and trace” operation (useless in practice and useless even had it worked perfectly) run by equally-useless Dido Harding, a Conservative Party crony who had already failed in her previous jobs. And so on…

Well, back in 2020, Sunak was lauded as the almost “inevitable” “next Prime Minister”, just as useless “Boris” had been promoted by msm idiots for 20 years before he actually became Prime Minister.

Sunak’s star, of course, faded as it began to be obvious even to the pathetic UK msm, and to members of his own party, that the Indian “clever boy” might have been thought wonderful at Winchester, Oxford, and in the unreal world of vulture finance-capitalism, but was not so great in the real world.

Even so, it must have come as a shock to Sunak to discover that the rank and file members of his own party actually preferred ignorant and stupid Liz Truss to him, and he must realize that at least part of that was because he is Indian rather than English.

Will Sunak now give up politics, or will he wait to see how badly Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng can trash the economy and society (further), in the hope that he will be invited to return, like a shopworn and “ethnic” de Gaulle?

I doubt that Sunak will bother to stay as an MP after the end of this Parliament. If he does, it will be on the backbenches, and because the convenience of being an MP may suit him.

At least they have not yet learned from the Jews the conceit that they are somehow essential to European culture and civilization.

Yes, wake up, English “conservative nationalists”! The Indians are not your allies, any more than are the Pakistanis; incidentally, neither are the Jews and/or Israel. Don’t be fooled.

So speaketh the “Levelling Up Secretary” and, prior to that (incredibly), Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

When you look at the pack of cretins now running this unbelievable bad joke of a government, you realize anew how truly unfit for purpose our political system has become.

Sparks a few memories.

The UN Centre in Vienna (actually on the edge of the city) is an odd place; at least that was my impression when I saw it in the mid-1980s. A concrete fortress or “island” (not literally, though actually on a large island in the Danube), set in quite a green area between the old Vienna and a newer section.

I used to swim, almost every day during my visit, at the not-far-away Alte Donau Strandbad, a closed-off section of the Danube that is either an “oxbow lake” or an artificial version of one. Superb place. Clean river water, a green park, properly-run facilities for changing etc and, best of all, few people. I was there on weekdays, when even in high summer the bulk of the hardworking population were at their jobs.

You cannot just wander into that UN Centre. Even in those days you had to have a pass issued by the security kiosk there. I did not have to get a tourist pass because someone I knew who worked there got me a different kind of visitor pass. The difference was that tourists get a guided tour, whereas I was fairly free to wander around.

A large collection of buildings.

I remember trying to get a sense of what is quite a confusing set-up. I remember seeing a noticeboard with ads for various kinds of local staff. The rates of pay, as far as I could see, were far better than the same people would get in Vienna itself, and were of course not taxable (UN employees do not pay national income tax but only a kind of UN tax, which is far lower).

Another thing that struck me was the Commissary, which no doubt had its origins in the immediately postwar 1940s days when almost everything was unobtainable, but what is odd about that is that the UN Centre in Vienna was established only in 1980, a mere few years before I visited! So a mystery. Maybe there was an earlier, smaller mission.

That Commissary, about the size of a medium-level convenience store, sold duty-free food and drink (including booze) to anyone who was a UN employee or, I think, accredited diplomat. A strange “boondoggle”, in the American phrase. I noticed (I think on a Friday), a couple of (from their stature and looks) East African women, buying Scotch.

Comparison

The Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation is Sergei Lavrov.

[S.V. Lavrov]

Lavrov, half-Russian, half-Armenian, is a graduate of the prestigious MGIMO or Moscow State Institute of International Relations [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moscow_State_Institute_of_International_Relations].

Lavrov worked as a diplomat in Sri Lanka and the USA before being appointed Minister for Foreign Affairs in 2004. He has been in post for 18 years.

Lavrov speaks 5 languages: Russian, English, French, Dvihehi, and Sinhala (the latter two being the languages of the Maldives and Sri Lanka).

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergey_Lavrov.

Now let us examine his present opposite number in the UK, James Cleverly, Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs.

[James Cleverly]

Cleverly, a “half-caste” (in the old term), with a British father and a mother from Sierra Leone, seems to have wanted an Army career.

According to Wikipedia, Cleverly “trained in the Army“, whatever that may mean (no detail of whether he was training to be an officer or as an enlisted soldier, presumably the latter, nor of where he trained, nor in what regiment or corps), but suffered a leg injury in 1989 and had to drop out. He would have been 19 or 20 at that time.

Cleverly then obtained a degree of sorts in “Hospitality Management” from the then Polytechnic of West London [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_West_London].

Cleverly was involved, not terribly successfully (one can surmise) in business and executive activities during the years up to about 2008, but by then was involved in two side-activities which proved more fruitful for him— politics, and the then Territorial Army (now, Reserves).

Cleverly’s leg injury had obviously been resolved by the time he was commissioned in the TA as 2nd lieutenant in 1991. He stuck at that for the following 14 years, reaching the rank of Lt. Col by 2015.

In politics, Cleverly was a London Assembly member for 8 years from 2007. Cleverly then benefited from the scandal around the ineffectual Jew sex pest and pervert Brooks Newmark, who had to stand down as MP for Braintree (Essex). Cleverly replaced Newmark.

Cleverly’s time as MP has not been distinguished, but the upheavals within the Conservative Party led to him being appointed as a Minister of State in 2020 and now, under Liz Truss, as Secretary of State. His appointment dates from 6 September 2022, about two weeks ago.

Cleverly speaks no language other than English.

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Cleverly

Well, there it is. Sergei Lavrov’s background, languages, and 18 years of experience (and many successes) in post, as against James Cleverly’s background, lack of success (other than in narrow career terms), two years of arguably relevant experience, and time in post as Secretary of State five minutes (putting it flippantly).

It will be recalled that when (also absurdly) Liz Truss was Foreign Secretary, Lavrov easily made a fool of her, inducing her to say that quite well-known cities in Russia should be given “back” to Ukraine (the stupid woman had no idea that they never had been part of Ukraine; one was not far from Moscow).

Liz Truss was an embarrassment as Foreign Secretary; she is just ludicrous as Prime Minister. Now someone even less educated is Foreign Secretary. This country is screwed.

Sergei Lavrov will win no plaudits for his kindly good nature, but on whom would you bet your money?
