What I predicted, a year ago, as a kind of microchip police state, though not yet with us (partly because of the brave “anti-vaxx” resistance of many) is still the System game-plan, together with all the “eat insects”, “15-minute-cities” stuff, and the rest. The System is looking for another opportunity, as happened with the Chinese virus, to push it all forward together.
We see apparently unconnected phenomena which are in fact, all part of a strategy. Major banks in the UK shutting down their branches (and so promoting online remote-access-only for customers); also, the major supermarkets reducing the number of tills where people can pay in cash, and promoting the self-service checkouts (where you cannot pay without a credit or debit card).
Take a look at the Neil Oliver tweet below on this blog.
The “Jack Monroe” situation continues
All very true. As others have tweeted, “Jack Monroe” “cleanses her Twitter timeline” by engaging with her supportive mugs on distractive topics (favourite ice-cream, cats, dogs, antiques, painting walls, whatever), to drown out the tgweets of those who have exposed her behaviour and activities.
“Jack Monroe” must be quietly smug to see that, even though the msm and “celebrities” have now almost all dropped her like a hot stone, there are still hundreds of brainless mugs willing not only to tweet meaningless messages of fake or other “supportive” “concern” to her but even to continue to send money to her. As of today, 636 utter mugs are still signed up to her Patreon “grift”, giving her thousands of pounds a month for nothing.
“Against stupidity, even the gods struggle in vain” [Schiller, Die Jungfrau von Orleans].
[Update, same day: Patreon now gives the number of “Jack Monroe” mugs as 522, not 636, so it seems that quite a few are, albeit belatedly, waking up to the scam].
I was looking at the tweets of those now “supporting” “Jack Monroe” on Twitter: almost all 50-75 years old, seemingly all white people; some supporting her because of her supposed “non-binary” lifestyle; quite a few seemingly mentally odd or disturbed. No young people, no ethnic minorities. Ironic, in a way, looking at her pronouncements over the years.
I think that the “Jack Monroe” scam will be an interesting, if minor, footnote to the future socio-cultural history of Britain in the 2010-2023(?) era.
An interesting and unusual take on the “Jack Monroe” scam.
Did you get that, Sunak, “Boris”-idiot, Woollyhead Trussbanger (Kwarteng), Ben Wallace, Tobias Ellwood, Jeremy Hunt etc? Britain is doing worse than Russia…
Meanwhile, the UK’s popular Press and TV outlets are replete with rich Jew know-alls such as Martin Lewis telling British people how to keep warm— by covering their windows with clingfilm and/or wearing heavy clothing indoors. Pathetic. Pathetic society, pathetic “Government”, pathetic “Opposition”.
Read the story. So many Muslims from traditionally-Muslim countries seem to be cruel by nature. Not all, of course, but many more by proportion as compared to European Christians (and other Europeans).
Look at that photo: it is as if he knows that these humans are there to save him.
Britain 2023. Woman smashes bottle over another woman’s head in an unprovoked attack, then attacks yet another woman. Did not know either victim. Result? Suspended sentence. Britain is becoming a disordered jungle.
Refers in part to a book, an anti-white diatribe called White Women.
Incidentally, I took the trouble to look up the book in question. It was published a couple of months ago, and presently ranks at about 19,000 in the Amazon bestsellers list. Using the Amazon Book Sales Calculator, that implies sales of only about 200 books worldwide per month. Not very many, but I bet that the “wokes” and the “you-know-whos” (((you know whos))) are getting it into the libraries of schools, colleges, and universities, mainly in the USA. More drip-drip anti-white poison.
The word the tweeter seeks is “slavery” or, perhaps, “serfdom“.
Brainwashed by the msm? Or (and/or) can they not see what might be the ultimate consequence?
Most horse racing in England does not involve cruelty these days. There have been many advances in the care and welfare of horses over the years, though minor improvements are still necessary. Rather disturbing that so many seem to think that such a traditional part of British and especially English life should be banned.
Part-Jew nasty little blot, George Osborne, talking about how great is HS2, and how good things such as the motorway system have been. There is a contrary view.
I myself remember, when aged about 21 (1976-77), the sections of the M25 in Surrey still largely unbuilt; at that time, I lived near the top of Reigate Hill, very easy walking distance from what is now the roundabout/interchange at Junction 8 of the M25. The M25 running east from there was nearly finished, but the bit running west was still being constructed.
Indeed, as a child (early/mid 1960s), I recall an England almost entirely devoid of motorway. In many respects it was better that way, though I concede that that may be regarded as a “Little Englander” or even “Luddite”, point of view.
When the motorway system was put in place, driving long distances became much easier. However, a certain character was lost, and that loss continued and deepened in the 1990s and up to the present day, made worse by the cancerous growths of new housing projects (“boxes for people”, if you like). I suppose that anyone under 40 —or even 50— would struggle to understand, though.
[re. the “alleged” “grifter”/”fraud”, “Jack Monroe”].
It makes me laugh how so many of the ill-informed and ignorant on Twitter believe that an action in defamation can be launched easily and with almost-guaranteed success. Few understand even the basics of defamation, or of the economics of litigation.
Would the British people not have been much better off without corrupt Kurdish carpetbagger Nadhim Zahawi? Some tweeters live their lives without logic.
…and, actually, “carry on” doing what, exactly? Ripping people off, while cobbling together occasional recipes for appalling food?
Ukraine— stray thoughts
Let us take the probably-mistaken idea that “Ukraine is winning” to the max, to the reductio ad absurdum. Let us suppose that the forces of the Kiev regime expel Russian forces from all of pre-2014 Ukrainian territory, including Crimea. What then? Does Russia, or Putin, just accept that? Is that the end? I think not.
Ukrainian forces cannot cross the borders of Russia, even marginally, without provoking not only a response from the Russian Government but also from the Russian people, who would then be “triggered”, as people now say, to defend “Holy Russia”, their native land or “rodina“.
For the first time since the incursion/invasion of 2022, the Russian Government would then enjoy almost-unqualified public support in fighting the invading forces of the Kiev regime.
It is unlikely, though, that the Kiev-regime forces can in fact expel Russian forces from Ukrainian or former Ukrainian territory. Russia has a far greater population, a functioning economy, vast economic resources, and a nuclear backstop.
The logic seems to be that either Russia prevails in the present conflict, or that it is pushed out, only to then return with far greater numbers and might within a year or two.
In the end, Russia will annex Ukraine east of the Dnieper, whatever happens in the meantime. Unless a major East-West hot war starts first.
Reading that 2022 blog post, I am reminded that LBC radio is owned lock, stock and barrel by a Jew. See the post itself for details. It explains much about the attitudes taken by LBC presenters and editors.
In fact, I should say that that blog post from a year ago has held up well, with the exception of my prediction of Russian incursion into Ukraine (correct in itself but wrong in its overestimation of the capabilities of the Russian forces).
Well, this week brings another victory for me over political journalist John Rentoul. He scored 5/10, but I trumped that with 7/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 3, and 8.
As I blogged yesterday, it looks as though no breakthrough will be made on either side until after the thaw of the spring gives way to summer. I still have in my mind my dream (blogged about a few days ago) about 1 July being the start of a war, perhaps one involving the whole of Europe.
In the meantime, I am assuming that the Russian forces will continue to degrade the infrastructure of Ukraine in the major centres, particularly Kiev area.
Peace talks have effectively been ruled out by the Jew Zelensky. The pre-condition for even a limited ceasefire seems to be that Russia gives up all territory within the pre-2014 Ukraine borders, including Crimea. For Russia, that is unthinkable. After all, even if the forces of the Kiev regime were to achieve total victory, they would be in no better position than if Russian forces were to withdraw now. That being so, there is no incentive for Russia to withdraw now, even were it willing to do so.
The NWO/ZOG centres are now funnelling arms to the Kiev regime on a scale thought impossible 11 months ago. Russia will probably thus be pushed into a massive offensive when summer comes.
Frequent users of Wikipedia who are even less technically-competent than me may like to know that it is possible to switch from the new format back to the far better one that was in use for the past 12-13 years by going to “Preferences” on Wikipedia (once logged-in) and choosing “Appearance“, and then (under “Skin“), “Vector Legacy (2010)“.
A year or two ago, the pack of malicious Jews calling itself “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, or “CAA”, was advertizing on its website for Jews already signed-up to Wikipedia to volunteer to “edit” (vandalize) Wikipedia’s articles on history, politics etc, using their private computers and sign-in details. Typically underhand Jew-Zionist methods.
Veritas omnia vincit…
State the truth openly and clearly. Refer people to the “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan” (aka, in part, “the Great Replacement”).
This may come about not by humanity losing a “war” with robots etc but by humanity simply becoming gradually more enmeshed by (and in) technology which is just too convenient, and which then becomes irremovable.
“A 61-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting Matt Hancock on the London Tube.
The alleged attack on the former Health Secretary happened yesterday morning at Westminster Underground station, close to the Houses of Parliament.” [Daily Mirror]
What puzzles me slightly is why Hancock would travel by Underground anyway. He has a salary of £85,000+, generous Parliamentary expenses, and outside earnings (including £400,000 in 2022 for his trash TV appearances) etc. Maybe he is just a moneygrubbing skinflint.
“Put a beggar on a horse and he rides it to death” [German proverb].
Looks as though my blog comments about half-Jew Raab, from several years ago, and over several years, have held up pretty well, if I say so myself.
Sending hundreds of tanks to Ukraine (from all over Europe and the USA) is a massive escalation. In reality, even one nuclear missile on London = the UK finished for a hundred years or more. Even one nuclear missile on each of New York, LA, San Francisco, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Houston, Miami, Chicago, Boston = USA finished for decades, maybe a hundred years or more.
Yes, Russia’s major cities and military centres too, but does that help us? No.
This is not the way to go. The escalation has to stop, and then be reversed.
The present UK Defence Secretary is what was once termed “a passed-over major“, a former officer who, when serving, was unlikely ever to reach senior command. Not someone who can be relied on now.
Yvette Cooper and her husband, Ed Balls, have several houses, partly bought by the money they ripped off during the expenses-scandal years. Not one houses any so-called “refugees”. Buy-to-let parasites.
Yvette Cooper should be kicked into the political gutter where she belongs. Incidentally, she is yet another Labour Friends of Israel puppet.
Amazing how many deluded or misled people actually think that “Jack Monroe” is busying around, collating useful or relevant data about the cost of food; in fact, she just collates enough to sound superficially credible to those who know no better.
No-one I know wants a “Labour” (fake) government, but no-one I know wants the present fake “Conservative” omnishambles either, and it will be good to see the anguish on their faces as many lose their seats, salaries, inflated expenses, jobs for wives, husbands, girlfriends, mistresses etc.
In fact, one of the best sights of 2019 was to see how upset were Jew-Zionist-lobby puppets such as Anna Turley, Mary Creagh, Ruth Smeeth etc, as they got turfed out of the House of Commons.
If only [redacted]…
That Tom Harwood person is just another pseudo-national traitor to the people of Britain and the peoples of Europe.
That was what happened in the Royal Navy and the U.S. Navy.
I recall that, when I first lived in the USA, in 1989 or 1990, the first US Navy ship to go mixed-sex was deployed to the Gulf. An aircraft-carrier, I think. The sailors did not object to nearly 100 women sailors joining the crew, but their wives certainly did! With some reason: when the deployment finished, it turned out that about 90 of the —less than 100— women on board had been made pregnant…
As for the Royal Navy, it matters little now, because the Royal Navy scarcely exists as an effective force. Apart from the paucity of ships, there is the question of the quality of many of the officers and men.
I happened to see about 15 mins of a documentary about a British warship. About a third of the complement seemed to be women. The junior officers (men and women) seemed to be incredibly dim, and rather wet (in a non-oceanic way). Drunk, too.
As for the crew, their shore leave in Italy ended with many drunk and near-incapable. Admittedly, rather an old naval tradition, but it was unpleasant to see, especially, the female members of the crew so drunk that they were unable to walk, falling into the gutter in their short skirts, just as they presumably did in the “left behind” UK towns from where many of them must have originated.
“The director of Harry and Meghan’s Netflix docuseries claims Buckingham Palace tried to ‘discredit’ the couple’s bombshell allegations by claiming the filmmakers did not contact the royals for comment.
Liz Garbus, in an interview with Vanity Fair, claims the Palace was contacted about the series, but denied being asked for comment so they could ‘discredit the content of the show’.
The director also revealed it was her idea to use the series as a platform to discuss racism and colonialism.
Ms Garbus, in her Vanity Fair interview published today, revealed exploring issues of racism, colonialism and alleged white supremacy in the British Monarchy was her idea.
‘For me, what was really important was to connect the dots to these larger historical issues,’ she told the magazine, adding that the couple was, ‘to their credit, very open and willing to journey down some of the paths that they might not have originally considered.‘
“A man who broke a security guard’s arm in a drunken pub brawl after verbally abusing and throwing cigarettes at a group of women has avoided jail.
Karl McDonald, 35, appeared at Liverpool Crown Court today on one count of affray and one count of assault following the fight on July 17, 2021.“
Sometimes I wonder exactly what do you have to do now in England to be imprisoned (except murder, or making remarks about Jews, as in the cases of Alison Chabloz and Jez Turner).
I mean, here is someone (and not a silly teenager either, 35 years of age) with several previous convictions for violence, and who started the fight, then continued with it, even breaking the arm of a security guard, and all he has to do is pick up some litter and pay modest compensation (no doubt at a few pounds a week). Not good enough.
Dreams are rarely prophetic; I hope that a dream I had recently will not prove to be the exception that proves the rule.
A large paper calendar mounted on a wall, with the leaves turning fast, as in some of those old Hollywood films of the 1930s and 1940s (was Spellbound like that? I do not recall).
Written in Russian, it stopped at 1 July, the Russian word for “July” above the number “1”.
I had the sense that that was the date of the start of the next great war (though I do not know whether it was a war confined to Europe or not).
It may be nothing, but if not, nothing I can do will change it.
A pretty good assessment from a few months ago, not seen by me until today. In fact, it echoes my own feeling from long before, that the “Harry and Meghan Show” was even then becoming a big bore for most people on both sides of the Atlantic.
As I blogged recently, “the Harry formerly known as Prince” and Meghan Mulatta are one-trick ponies. Once they have exhausted their fund of royal stories and whining, they have literally nothing of interest left to offer the public, either in the UK or USA. Of course, by that time, they will have several hundred million dollars or pounds, but as far as I can see, Harry has burned his boats with his birth family, and particularly with his brother. As for the Mulatta, she cold-shouldered her own birth family long ago, and has nothing to lose.
It has occurred to me previously that “Bootstrap Cook” may be made of the same material as some infamous murderesses. Just my impression.

So the concerns of local people, heritage groups, environmental groups, and a huge number of individual British people (and even some Jews, indeed some Zionist Jews) will be overridden so that Jew-Zionist supremacists and triumphalists can wallow in it all. Look where this horrible “memorial” (propaganda centre) will be— right next to the Palace of Westminster. It says “we own you“.
Actually, look at those promoting it in Parliament. Apart from Jewish MPs and “peers” (such as the fraudster and expenses cheat, “Lord” Dubs), the scheme is promoted by such as Robert Jenrick, that corrupt little bastard who is entirely in the pocket of Jewish property developers, and married —like Keir Starmer— to a Jewish woman, their children being brought up as if fully-Jewish.
As for Sunak, he is just a globalist Indian puppet, who worked for the Goldman Sachs vulture-capitalist finance organization. Take away the Winchester and Oxford education, and there is nothing really “British” about him, even if he was born in the UK.
Incidentally, the architecture of the proposed “memorial” is pretty much as bad as (or indeed worse than) that seen in 1970s Brutalism: multistorey car parks, bus stations, and other excrescences. The architect is some African or other, apparently.
Andy Burnham is the “their” pocket too, a fact that I noticed years ago.
Ecce the self-describing “Left” in the UK. Forget social change, radical structural reform of society and the economy, let alone socio-political “revolution”. No, what matters to those idiots is “racism”, “sexism”, “trans” nonsense, facemask nonsense, and “deplatforming”, from Twitter etc, those with whom they disagree or who see through their silliness.
Rather than take real action for a better society, they prefer to support “grifters” such as “Jack Monroe”, Julia Grace Patterson (the non-practising doctor who sells facemasks etc), Owen Jones, “Femi” (the UK-based Nigerian who has found online “activism” a lot less tiring than getting a job or profession) and others of the same sort.
Those idiots do not demand that the structure of society be changed much; they prefer to applaud a “grifter” who says that a dinner can be created for 11p a head, or a family fed well on £20 a week, or that “our NHS” is the envy of Europe, or that everyone should wear facemasks and/or get down on one knee in sign of fealty to the blacks, or that “refugees” (migrant-invaders) are “welcome” and should be paid for by British families. Not forgetting Greta Nut and her deluded fans.
That way, the self-describing “Left” poseurs can continue to virtue-signal from their comfortable homes in leafy suburbs, or the Cotswolds, or the outside-London Green Belt, and continue to make a good living from well-paid professions, or inherited capital, without having to change their own lifestyles at all.
Any real revolution will come from elsewhere.
In my opinion, tweeter “@Eastenders2004” is almost certainly “Jack Monroe” under one of her many Twitter aliases. Looks like she really has hit the bottle, the cocaine, or the non-prescription painkillers hard today.
“@Eastenders2004” was set up this month, has 0 followers, is following 4 accounts and has tweeted once (and replied 5 times), all about “Jack Monroe”.
Then expose them to David Irving, Savitri Devi, and Henry Williamson, among others.
Do not expose them to co-ordinated and ahistorical propaganda.
Because most people are disinclined to find the moral courage to challenge, even in their own minds, a narrative that comes approved by the mob, or the System, or the msm (cf. WW2 “gas chambers”).
"Do you think the perpetrator will face a trial, a severe sentence and be deported to his home country as quickly as possible?Unfortunately I have to disappoint you. This is again psychiatry at taxpayer expense"
Turns out that the “racists” and “bigots” were right all along…
That’s Labour’s answer to Woollyhead Trussbanger (Kwasi Kwarteng) or James Cleverly. and they are quite bad enough.
Yes, I know he has “degrees” etc. Meaningless. One of the most stupid blacks I ever met was a former Sierra Leone diplomat (who had been High Commissioner in London), and who had “degrees” (including a “doctorate”) from, if I recall aright, Oxford, the Sorbonne, and either Yale or Harvard (I forget which).
Our society is now pretty much decadent and washed-up.
Monbiot should stick to reafforestation etc.
Terrible though it may be, Russia’s choice in 2023 and 2024 will quite possibly resolve into that of either losing tactically in the south and southeast of Ukraine or of completely destroying the main cities of Ukraine, meaning Kiev, Odessa, and Kharkov, and prioritizing that over the destruction of the Kiev-regime forces in the field.
Whether that will be the opening of a wider war between Russia and NATO is an open question. If so, the UK may be finished in almost every way.
Though my prediction for the next general election (2019) was wrong (I thought hung Parliament or small-majority Labour win), in my defence I can say that that election did not, in the event, happen until almost 2 years after the blog was posted (blog— January 2018, but General Election— December 2019). I think that the rest of the assessment has held up quite well.
“This was the moment at which we began the unstoppable descent into terrible danger which so many of us will bitterly regret in times to come.
I won’t waste time here going over the question of who started the Ukraine war, or even why. Most people don’t want to know and refuse to think about it, or to look up the facts. They defame and abuse anyone who tries to tell them. So to hell with that.
When the Defence Secretary announced that British tanks were going to Ukraine, not one MP raised any doubts or opposed the move. Not one. To read the record of the non-debate is like reading the proceedings of some Communist fake parliament, supine and brain-dead.
The country where political freedom was born has decided not to bother being free any more.
What we have just decided to do is to prolong and deepen the war. Maybe Ukraine’s new tanks will sweep all before them. Maybe they will bog down. Maybe they will try to take Crimea. Maybe they will soon be taking part in a Victory Parade in Red Square. I don’t know. But if they cross into what Russia regards as its own territory, then do not be surprised by anything which happens.
...there is the real possibility that a large chunk of Europe might be turned into a radioactive graveyard and that American conventional retaliation for this (which will be furious and powerful) will take us a stage further into the world of horror, loss, flight, pestilence and poverty which always follows war.”
[Peter Hitchens in the Mail on Sunday].
The Cold War was frozen, formalized, mutual aggression. The world came close to disaster more than once, but the situation was at least stable. That was hard on the peoples of occupied Central and Eastern Europe, caged by the “Big Three” agreements of the WW2 period (Casablanca, Teheran, Yalta, Potsdam), but actually life there was not always and everywhere terrible— just worse (usually, mostly) and —overall— less free than in the (better parts of) Western Europe and North America.
That was better than nuclear war across Europe, the Soviet Union, and the USA.
The gradual collapse of socialism in the 1956-1989 period of 33 years meant that one of the two main pillars of that stasis collapsed, meaning that outside socio-economic and other forces could start to flow into what had been Soviet territory..
Without Soviet power in place, the whole Soviet system fell apart quite quickly. By 1991, the Soviet Union was history. Western goods and ideas flooded Russia and the newly-liberated or created states. Ukraine was, for the first time in history, an independent state (a simplification, but basically correct).
Instead of a genuine attempt to help Russia and other former components of Sovietism transition to a better society, there was a scramble to rule over Russia, and to exploit its people, taken part in not only by Jewish (yes, and other) interests in the West but also by Jews inside Russia, the so-called “oligarchs”. Some, such as Boris Berezovsky, have died (probably murdered, despite living in the UK), others have increased their security and moved permanently to the UK, USA, Israel etc.
I myself saw elements of that scramble, not only when I first visited Moscow in 1993, and not only in my year in Kazakhstan (1996-97) but also in other ways, e.g. by my sitting (1995-1996) on the Committee of the Central Asia and Transcaucasia Law Association [CATLA], a body set up by large law firms with interests in the post-Soviet states, with UK Government assistance.
Also later, when back in London, in the Caribbean, and elsewhere.
On the foreign policy side, the “New World Order” [“NWO”] tried to take over Russia, and nearly did so when Yeltsin was President. What prevented it was a combination of circumstances: Russian pushback fuelled by wounded pride, Putin taking over as President, the collapse of the dotcom bubble in the West, and the focus of the NWO shifting to its other major interest, i.e. destroying the states hostile to Israel; that was after the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001.
The military aid being given has gone from small items of defensive “kit” (in the British military term) to large items of offensive armament, as Hitchens writes. There are few weapons more aggressive in offence than a tank.
I recall being at a CATLA meeting in London in late 1995 or early 1996 when an account was given of a report that day by telephone from Dushanbe, Tadzhikistan, then the epicentre of a civil war. The report had had to be curtailed because the person on the end of the line had suddenly said “I’m going— a tank has just come round the corner.” End of conversation.
As I recently blogged, 14 British tanks may not be much, but the Zelensky regime is all but demanding that other European states provide 300. Still a small number compared with those in action in 1943 at Kursk (over 8,000 tanks in total); however, in Egypt, Rommel’s initial advance on Alexandria involved about 300 German tanks.
The point is that the war is now getting to the point where, in the absence of a ceasefire or negotiated settlement, the Russians either have to recruit, train and deploy an army vast enough and powerful enough to overwhelm the forces of the Kiev regime in 2023, or go nuclear (whether tactical or even strategic).
The USA and UK (etc) are getting to the point where they might be seen as actual participants in the war.
Leaving the huge forces (mainly American) of NATO aside, there is no way for the Kiev regime to win this. Ukraine is becoming a country without electricity, it has little functioning industry now, 20% of its population has fled to other states, and its population is anyway a fraction of the size of that of Russia.
If the West (NWO/ZOG) does not stop supporting the Kiev regime, we are on and sliding down a slope which might well devastate all of Europe.
I shall believe that when she stops taking people’s money, particularly from those who have little to start with, and/or those who are vulnerable (even if they are utter mugs to send “Jack Monroe” anything at all).
Seems that the tweets referred to have been deleted (another habit of the “Bootstrap Cook”).
Another poor and/or financially-struggling “Jack Monroe” fan? Oh, no, wait…a dim-seeming librarian from the University of Bedfordshire (is there such a university? Maybe there is). She has obviously not seen any of the voluminous evidence against her idol.
A good description. Worthy of a social anthropologist, perhaps a bit —in manner— like David Attenborough, but specializing in Essex “grifters”.
Quite funny seeing all these terribly “concerned” and virtue-signalling women (mostly women), who are, unwittingly, simply advertizing their lack of nous.
…so tweets a total loony (another “not quite all there” “Jack Monroe” fanatic).
There is no incentive for “Jack Monroe” to pause or stop her Patreon “grift”. After months of criticism and evidence presented, there are, as of today, still 635 utter mugs sending her money, between about £2,500 a month and about £30,000 a month (probably about £6,000 pcm). Why would she stop taking it? Certainly not because a few have threatened a small claim in the County Court. Those few can be paid off easily enough.
If other mugs donate via other channels, then “Jack Monroe” can simply say (or not even bother to say) “thank you very much” and keep the cash, using it for her own purposes, as she has done.

Ha ha! The presumption of the girl there is incredible. Trying to grift a living as an “online influencer” or something, like thousands of others, from “Jack Monroe” and Owen Jones, through Julia Grace Patterson and others of that type, and right down to “who she?” types like the one in that tweet. She should get a job in a bottling plant or something (at least until robots take over completely).
Britain used to be a country that did things, real things, and had people at all levels who, many of them, were solid, even in the House of Commons etc. Now look…
Men (and women) of straw are now around in huge numbers and, if they were just to “disappear”, not only would I not care but in fact would actually applaud their removal.
Ha. Well put.
It is truly incredible to see just how gullible so many of these “concerned” women are, the “Jack Monroe” partisans. She has been repeating those behaviours for years— angrily snarling and threatening, then pretending to stomp off from Twitter and/or pretending to have one of a whole host of physical and/or mental conditions, then claiming to have been “bullied” or “forced off Twitter”, after which she returns within a day or two (and counts up her new donations).
Yes, many rather unstable people who somehow imagine that by at least tweeting in support of “Bootstrap Cook”, they are striking a blow against the hated “Tories”. No so. The “Jack Monroe” assertion “I can feed someone on about 61p a day” (literally what she claims, feeding a family of four for £20 a week), plays into the idea that “welfare” (social security) benefits are perfectly adequate, or even too generous.
“Jack Monroe” now knows that, however outlandish her tall tales are, hundreds if not thousands of utter mugs will believe them all, and will think her a kind of saintly warrior against poverty and injustice, no matter what obvious lies she posts.
She has claimed, ludicrously, to have been involved with fighting the fire at Grenfell Tower, to have been in high-level discussions about Government inflation statistics, to have been so poor that she had to unscrew lightbulbs to save on electricity, and that she boiled down soap to make shower gel (!). All surely, plainly, lies, obviously so to any but the totally deluded, yet her often-mentally afflicted fans lap it up, either believing the lies, or believing that they somehow do not matter.
I agree with tweeter “Littlegiteshob”. It is absolutely incredible how stupid and guillible many are.
Look at that “@tomcheater”. Does not know what day it is.
The French love massive demonstrations, but such events rarely change anything, not on their own.
When did huge marches in the UK change anything? A million marched against war in Iraq. Result— nothing. A couple of hundred thousand marched against “austerity”. Result— nothing.
So long as “Jack Monroe” has 635 utter mugs sending her a total of anywhere between £2,500 and £30,000 a month, I doubt whether she will feel any pressure to get a job. In any case, it is hard to imagine the kind of job for which she might be qualified, even leaving aside her alleged drug and drink problems, and her peculiar mentality.
Some tweeters are enraged that “Jack Monroe” has (for the umpteenth time) used by faked (probably faked, allegedly faked) physical illness or feared illness, and also mental illness including suicide hints, to garner sympathy, deflect from her fraudulent or near-fraulent “grifting”, and collect even more money from naive people on Twitter etc: see below
Why tweeter “@Calderpeople” thinks that “Jack Monroe” has no money any more, I have no idea. After all, the 635 Patreon mugs are still presumably paying up, and the Thrifty Kitchen book is out, though I suspect not selling well; I believe around 400 copies, including Kindle, per week. I may be slightly out, but think that each sale gets the authoress about £1, though possibly less, possibly more. See https://www.societyofauthors.org/Where-We-Stand/buying-choices/How-do-authors-get-paid.
That is on a price of £9.99 for the hardback, the original cover price of £19.99 having been abandoned, in effect.
I do think that the msm has almost dropped “Jack Monroe” now. I notice that, apart from the Independent, the newspapers have not much covered the release of the book; a few fairly low-circulation magazines have.
I was surprised to see how small she is, even up against the TV people, who are not giants:
Was someone that tiny really trained (for a while), and as she claims, as a firefighter? To me, that seems very doubtful.
“Anthea Rogers” (possibly “Jack Monroe” in disguise) weighs in:
“Jack Monroe” and cocaine
A word about the alleged cocaine abuse by the “Bootstrap Cook”: I find it interesting that (until recently) she was being supported publicly by the Jewish TV cook, Nigella Lawson, and by the (also Jewish) food critic Jay Rayner, as well as by Tom Parker Bowles (food writer, and son of Queen Camilla).
As for Nigella Lawson, she has admitted that she has (“in the past”) abused cocaine and other drugs on a number of occasions (read “regularly“?).
Then we have Tom Parker Bowles. God knows what Brigadier Parker-Bowles, his father (who was Commanding Officer of the Household Cavalry and Silver-Stick-in-Waiting to the late Queen Elizabeth), thinks of his son’s choice of career. Not that it is inherently bad, and it must be lucrative, but I wonder all the same whether there is parental disappointment.
This week I did not do so well: 4/10, same as political journalist John Rentoul. I only knew the answers to questions 2, 4, 9, and 10 (the same ones that John Rentoul got right). I would have got No. 3 —the “Northern tart” question— right too, but I just could not recall it.
LIttle pro-Israel monkey-on-a-stick Sajid Javid wants to charge patients for seeing a GP or visiting A&E departments.
He himself is standing down at the next general election. If it becomes widely known that charging for NHS services is the “Conservative” Party direction of travel, the already-anticipated loss of Conservative Party seats might be historically large, even if the NHS is not performing properly at present.
Incredible that parts of the msm are still promoting the “Bootstrap Cook”.

“The road to Hell is paved with good intentions“, as we know. The proposed rules no doubt aim at giving the American “poor” a better diet instead of the diabetes-2-tending (and generally unhealthy) one that includes white bread and “American cheese” [a particular kind of processed cheese sold to the public as “Kraft slices” etc: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_cheese].
The price, though, is freedom of choice; and the other restrictions, such as “one car per family”, are obviously repressive, though of course in many countries only the wealthier part of the population(s) have even one car. Poverty is relative.
“Bootstrap Cook” has raised only one person out of “poverty”— herself (and quite possibly not even that).
Both true, and that is before you even think about “Bono”, Bob Geldof etc…
As the psychiatrist in one episode of Fawlty Towers remarks, “there’s enough material there for an entire conference“.
More accurately, “it” may be defamatory but, if “true”, is not actionable defamation.
That “@blackwolfski” tweeter is just so typical of those who have a whole fake worldview of “woke”-ism. Akin to wearing a jacket of msm lies: supports “Jack Monroe”, Jacinda Ardern, Labour Party drones etc, and is entirely impervious to any “unapproved” truths. Note the faux-serenity and faux-“concern” of his (fake, “passive-aggressive”) good wishes to tweeter “@scbusiness4”.
Hard to judge to what extent that was so but, if accurate, it sounds like very bad behaviour (to say the least).
Tweeter “@jimellis123” is another very typical “Jack Monroe” supporter-type: the man of 50+ or 60+, retired or unemployed (as it seems), not seemingly poor or “struggling” (except possibly with mental “issues”); socio-politically— narrow-minded. Also, the “passive-aggressive” smugness, as seen in the tweet below:
Presumably meant to be satirical, but quite likely the literal truth.
You see rubbish on Twitter about this, all about how New Zealand’s economy is “booming” etc. Well, the statistics lie, and for a very obvious reason: when you shut down a country almost completely for 2 years, the economy nosedives. Any activity at all after that seems, superficially, to be strong growth.
“Then there is her approach to Covid. Initially, the world bought into the myth that her government was a top performer in eliminating the disease.
The truth, of course, is that it’s relatively simple to quarantine remote islands. And having introduced a strategy of isolation and hard lockdown at the start of the pandemic, Ardern clung to a zero-Covid policy that was way beyond the edge of reason.
Her government shut down businesses, closed entire towns if a small outbreak of the virus occurred, and forced New Zealand citizens who happened to be abroad when the pandemic struck to apply to enter their own country, with only a tiny number of places available via an online lottery system.
At first, the policy was popular, with Ardern using Facebook Live sessions to communicate with the nation in a crumpled jumper, after putting her daughter to bed, in a manner that struck a chord with the public. Indeed, in the 2020 election, her party polled almost 50 per cent.
Yet, as time went on, opposition to this sometimes cruel policy (for which exemptions were only available for celebrities and the ultra-wealthy) grew, with critics lambasting a sluggish vaccine rollout and pointing out that the only world leader more bloody-minded in holding on to a strategy of eliminating Covid at all costs was communist China’s president Xi Jinping.
The crescendo of division and unrest saw huge demonstrations outside parliament.“
“Huge demonstrations“…which were not covered at all by the BBC, Sky, ITN, or the “Lugenpresse” System msm outlets of the UK; and what about that bit re. “exemptions were only available for celebrities and the ultra-wealthy“? Peak pseudo-socialist nonsense. As in “the virus is so dangerous that only the ultra-wealthy and —of course— ‘celebrities’ can do whatever they like”…
It reads more like a parody than real government policy, even if it is from a joke state like New Zealand.
Try telling the truth, though, to the msm drones in the UK, let alone the Twitterati mugs. They are closed to the truth, on almost any subject.
Jacinda Ardern was just another Blair-type NWO/ZOG puppet (in fact, she worked for a while as a “SpAd” at Westminster, under Blair.
The whole interconnected milieux (msm “journalism”, “fashion”, TV/radio “comedy” and “drama”, in fact TV generally) should be purged, and I do not just mean deprived of its riches and platform.
Perhaps the New Zealanders could institute a “Jacinda Day”, akin to our “Guy Fawkes Day”, in which an effigy of “Jacinda” might be immolated in some way that produces few “emissions”… A kind of “damp squib” fire that produces little light or warmth. Symbolic, you might say…
“Far right“? Oh, they mean people not totally brainwashed by NWO/ZOG propaganda:
Only (sort–of) joking… but then, Sinn Fein/IRA has become a joke anyway, a kind of —superficially— more militant SNP or Plaid Cymru.
The police should be investigating all that. Why should a black woman in Bristol be facing trial on very similar facts yet “Jack Monroe” not only not investigated but even still being promoted by some of the msm?
A typical “Jack Monroe” supporter might be a woman of about 60 years old, not badly-off, pretty ignorant but thinking herself rather educated, and living in some suburban or rural area; a Guardian reader, pro the Kiev regime, pro the facemask nonsense, needless to say “anti-racist” etc. Or a male, or LGBTQXYZ, equivalent, possibly retired, possibly a business owner in a modest way, probably “woke” etc. Certainly not “poor” or “struggling”.
The first part of that is plainly not libellous even on its face.
The second part may or may not be.
How is saying that “Jack Monroe” “makes more money than the Prime Minister” libellous at all, even if not true? Answer: it isn’t.
So she claims to be “still suing” Con MP Lee Anderson. I wonder. So far, according to Lee Anderson, he has not received any pre-action correspondence as required under the Civil Procedure Rules.
An action in defamation must be brought within a year of the triggering cause, but even then is still expected to be brought expeditiously; in lieu of that, there may be costs consequences.
“Jack Monroe” still has, in theory, 3-4 months in which to bring proceedings, but I doubt whether they will be brought or, if brought, would be successful.
Can anyone rely on any statement put out by “Jack Monroe”? I think not.

The “Jack Monroe” scandal rolls further on…
My guess is that “Jack Monroe” may even get a solicitor to send a “Letter before Action” to Lee Anderson, which will help her to continue to plead for money im various ways, and keep her in the news, so maybe attracting more mugs to subsidize her. There will, however, be no actual issuance of proceedings against Lee Anderson or Martin Daubney. If I am wrong about that, and proceedings are actually issued, that will eventually turn out to be a very expensive error for the “Bootstrap Cook”.
Actually, she goes lower. Lee Anderson claimed that 30p can feed someone at least for a day or part of a day; “Jack Monroe” claims 11p! Is there a prize for the first idiot or “grifter” who claims to be able to make a 1p lunch?
1,000 mugs? I mean “patrons“… “Jack Monroe” must be envious. She now has “only” 635 utter mugs still subsidizing her lifestyle.
Seriously, though, who on Earth would send money to Owen Jones?
Apart from anything else, Jones has made several hundred thousand pounds (perhaps even half a million) from his books, owns his own apartment or house, and has all sorts of income streams, but the Patreon one alone has been bringing in between £36,000 and well over £100,000 a year.
Then there is his Guardian column. I do not know how much he gets for that, but I would think at least £50,000 p.a., possibly a very great deal more.
Britain, home of the “grifters”, from Owen Jones and “Jack Monroe” through Julia Grace Patterson and many more.
Puzzling, though, nicht wahr? I mean, imagine that you are the sort of deluded mug who sends money to “grifters” like Owen Jones or “Jack Monroe”. What part of “Owen Jones is already making an income of £100,000+ a year” impels you to think “I know what to do with my small disposable income— send Owen Jones (who makes £100,000 a year or more) £10 or £20 a month extra“? I have to admit that I find that mentality utterly incomprehensible. There are so many dim and/or deluded people around.
Apparently, Ms. Ardern has somehow acquired, during her years in office, about £25M (no-one seems to know how, or from where), so for her it may make sense to live “the good life” while still relatively young. She represents the transnational conspiracy, not the New Zealand electorate.
Andrew Neil makes the point, but at the end of the day, a corrupt Kurdish carpetbagger like Zahawi is not really British, nor European, and has no real understanding of our way of life (as it was before the migration-invasion). He is certainly “Wily” and “Oriental”, but no “Gentleman”, in short.
“Jack Monroe”— the show rolls on
I have no more information than is publicly available, but it seems to me that most of the msm, and most of the “celebrity” crowd, are cold-shouldering “Jack Monroe” now, leaving only the pitiful mugs subsidizing her on Patreon. Somewhere between £2,250 and £27,940 per month. My guess is still about £6,000.
Adapting the well-known words of Lady Caroline Lamb about Byron being “mad, bad, and dangerous to know“, “Jack Monroe” has become “mad, bad, sad, and dangerous to know“…
As in a Ponzi scheme, the “Bootstrap Cook” will pay off the most persistent complainants, at least pay them some money, before any small claims are filed; she can use the monies still (incredibly) flowing in from others.
Meanwhile, “Bootstrap Cook” has found a fortuitous deflection-mechanism— tweeting prolifically about the resignation of Jacinda Ardern in New Zealand, and about how wonderful she supposedly is or was. “Useful idiots” are already tweeting in support. Nothing said about the totally “woke” nonsense that has taken over New Zealand because of Jacinda Ardern and those behind her, and nothing said about the dictatorial “lockdown” policies she spearheaded.
Now she compares herself to any and all abused or supposedly abused women, deflecting from the storm of criticism of her “grifting”.
As for the “rape and death threats“, I have no idea whether Jacinda Ardern received any, or any credible, ones; I have not seen any evidence that “Jack Monroe” has received any at all.
Basically, “Jack Monroe” has spent a number of years taking money from people, tweeting prolifically, doing the odd interview or photo-shoot, drinking heavily and also (allegedly, plausibly) snorting cocaine, going on jaunts here and there, occasionally speaking to audiences for (apparently) up to £15,000 a time, and spending like a drunken sailor.
Lisa Nandy, a mixed-race System drone and freeloader, half-Indian and a member of Labour Friends of Israel. Her smug manner reminds me all too clearly of the Blairite Labour MPs of 20 years ago: expenses fraud Hazel Blears and others. Nein danke.

Incidentally, what does it say about System-drone journalists such as Emily Maitlis that they cannot, apparently, see through the fakery of “Jack Monroe”? What else has escaped them?
Not sure that I agree with tweeter “@NicolaRSpurr” here about “Jack Monroe” being basically decent; the more I see about her the less I think she is at all decent. Quite mad, of course, as well.
Ha ha! Peak “Jack Monroe” (?).
As Oscar Wilde put it, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery“…
Ecce the latest “Jack Monroe” fan: “CEO, Interplanetary Expeditions Ltd. | Space technology transfer broker | R&D in advanced space propulsion systems; cooking; flying; music; Republic of Liverpool“. Not sure whether to add “bullshitter” to that list. Maybe, maybe not. In either case, does not seem to be anyone noticeably “poor” or “struggling“.
Jewish behaviour, or merely Jew-Zionist behaviour?
I think that “Jack Monroe” has three main goals at present:
1. to deflect all the criticism of her lying and “grifting” by clinging, albeit implausibly, to the Jacinda Ardern resignation and to the wider topic of how women are supposedly trolled on Twitter etc (which seems odd— many of the worst Twitter trolls are women, usually anonymous; at least they think so);
2. to try to retain or regain her reputation with the msm journalists and “celebrities” who made her into a sort-of “celebrity” herself;
3. to keep going her Patreon scam as long as possible (she is making tens of thousands monthly from it).
Actually, I think that, unless some kind of criminal or civil action impacts her, “Jack Monroe” has pretty much had her “15 minutes of fame”. I cannot see what more, new, or interesting, she has to say, really.
The main matter of importance now is to do what we can to ensure that, after whatever is going to happen in the next few years, Europe is rebuilt as a fully European space.
