Migration invasion continues

On Thursday 559 people were picked up off the Kent coast after making the crossing in 19 boats, and on Friday 358 people crossed in 10 boats.” [BBC News]

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-59710100

900 more in 2 days!

Picked up off the Kent coast“…Oh yes? How far “off” the coast would that be? 10 miles? More?

Soon, even poor weather will not hamper the invasion, as larger rubber boats and RIBs are used. Even now, it can be seen that about 30 are arriving on each boat.

The 900 that arrived on Thursday and Friday will now “have to be” found accommodation, food, spending money, NHS medical care, other services, and few of them will ever be more than a burden to the British people.

What about the past two days, Saturday and Sunday? The same? Another 900?

I do not even need to bet (because I know) that the same quasi-traitors who support the migration-invasion are the same virtue-signalling hypocrites who will soon be crying about how the NHS is “under-resourced”, about how the police are “under-resourced”, about how there is a worsening housing crisis in the UK; and so on.

Quite right. I can recall, almost every year for decades (literally decades, about 25 years), the NHS having a “winter crisis”. Long before “Covid”.

The “panicdemic” is not only convenient as a way of introducing a police state under another guise; it is also convenient for the very poorly-administered NHS. It supplies a narrative: “we are swamped by Covid!” OK, so that’s your excuse in 2021 and for 2020. So, er, what was the reason the NHS was “in crisis” for almost all of the preceding 25 winters?

Not that I am opposed to the NHS, meaning public healthcare free at point of use. I heard secondhand a (thought credible) story about a lady somewhere (I forget where exactly) in the USA, who developed, many years ago, a serious problem with hearing (and had had a problem since birth) and, because her health insurance, which she actually had, would not cover it, had been extremely restricted in her enjoyment of life. For years.

It seems that that lady was finally able to get the (actually pathetically small) amount of money required recently, but how sad that, for lack of a very small amount of money (less than £3,000 in UK money), she was so handicapped for many years.

No-one sensible wants to replace the existing health services with a “pay or die” system. However, something needs to change.

The principle of the NHS is good, but the NHS lost its way sometime in the Blair-Brown years, 10-20 years ago. Maladministration. Callousness. Lack of proper direction.

The migration invasion has made matters much worse.

Answer: because the part-Jew, part-Levantine clown and public entertainer who should be “running the country” is incapable of doing so, and should never have risen higher than backbench MP level, if that.

is it becuz Claudia Webbe is black, a woman, and an MP?” Answers on a postcard…and then you see agonized articles in the New Statesman, or Guardian, speculating as to why people will still not vote “Labour” even now that “nasty uncle Adolf” (Corbyn) has been replaced by nice safe (it is claimed) Keir Starmer.

Starmer is not a “supporter of terrorism” (except Israeli state terrorism”, and the kind of Jewish sub-terrorism that we have seen in the UK in the past); likewise, Starmer is not “an anti-Semite”…I have no doubt that that is so! Good grief, he even has a Jewish wife, and children being brought up as if fully-Jewish!

Seems, however, that that sort of claim cuts little mustard with the voting public. True, the opinion polls now show “Labour” ahead of the equally-misnamed “Conservatives”, but then look at this shambles of a government!

The word “omnishambles” could have been coined for this mis-government. Indeed, the word is not even strong enough.

Yes.

I have reposted a few tweets with which I agree, but it is disturbing that someone apparently at a “leading university” can compose a sentence such as “twitters self proclaimed education correspondent” without an apostrophe or a hyphen in sight. Sign of the times.

Labour

I have already made a few comments today, and yesterday, and the day before, about the Labour Party. The fact is that those opinion polls are only favourable to Labour by default. The North Shropshire result cannot just be ignored on the argument that “…because Labour never wins there“.

Even taking into account tactical voting (which obviously took place), the North Shropshire result was very poor for Labour. For one thing, why was Labour not the chosen tactical vote recipient? Why the LibDems? In the past, even in the last (2019) election for the seat, in fact in the last three elections (2019, 2017, 2015), Labour, not the LibDems, came in in second place.

Indeed, the LibDems have only come second in the constituency twice, in 2010 and in 1992. In all others, in third place, often a distant third.

The LibDem vote in North Shropshire was only 10% in 2019, and even lower (5.3%) in 2017. In fact, even in the 2010 days of “Cleggmania”, the LibDem vote only reached 20.9% (with Labour on 18.1%).

The sheer ineptitude of the Boris Johnson misgovernment is obviously a factor, going beyond even that of previous Conservative and Labour governments but, even so, something more is going on here. Labour has lost not only credibility, but relevance, raison d’etre.

There is no “industrial proletariat”, just an increasingly raceless (in the cities) and cultureless “precariat”. “Labour”-label speaks for (or at least to) mainly those with public sector jobs, to the blacks (those that even bother to vote) and to some of the “browns”, esp. Pakistanis etc. Not really to any other group of any size.

The Labour MPs are largely seen as useless. Some of the black women are especially poor, but they are not alone. A significant number of Labour MPs have been convicted, arrested, or suspended in the past year alone.

It is always hard to predict a General Election in the UK, bearing in mind the crazy First Past The Post voting system, and the contrived boundaries of constituencies, but to my mind we are heading into hung Parliament territory again. That nearly happened (again) in 2019, but Labour’s collapsed vote (a collapse of 8 points) enabled the Conservative Party (the vote of which increased by 1 point) to get an 80-seat majority.

If, next time, the Labour vote collapses further, but the Conservative vote also falls, the LibDems may manage to pick up a number of Conservative seats. Maybe…but with the Conservatives still left holding, probably, a plurality of seats.

I would not totally write off the Conservative Party just yet, poor though the “Conservatives” are, if Boris-idiot is binned. There is still a lot of traditional, ingrained, support for the Conservatives, especially in rural and southern England, whereas in the traditionally Labour areas, support for Labour has ebbed away, or eroded. I cannot see Keir Starmer and his Labour Friends of Israel front bench reversing that trend.

“Boris” is now a dead weight for the Conservative Party. If he is removed, the party, poor though it is, must be a match for equally-poor Labour.

The “Covid” “laws”, “rules”, “measures” and general nonsense have also weakened support for Con Party (and for Labour, which has weakly followed and supported the Conservative Government).

As for the LibDems, few vote for them, as such. People are voting against the major System parties.

My view since the days of the Con Coalition of 2010-2015, that the LibDems are finished, still holds, despite Amersham, despite North Shropshire. The only question is when the last LibDem MP will go, and that will not happen while the Conservative Party is as toxic as it now is, because the LibDems will be there as “alternative”, particularly where Labour is sliding and/or has no chance.

This should be a good moment for social-nationalism, but there is no social-national party, and no real movement.

The superficially-educated ignorant

Watched an episode of The Chase from a few years ago. Probably the worst team I have seen. One woman seemed to know nothing at all, literally nothing (except how to walk and speak), while another, a young woman with a degree in English, and who was going to be doing a master’s degree in magazine journalism, was frighteningly ignorant for someone with at least 16 years of full-time education (and who wanted to start her own magazine!). She thought that Elizabeth I was the grandmother of Tsaritsa Alexandra of Russia (it was Victoria, as all my readers will know)! She also thought that the famously affluent Thameside village of Bray is in Sussex (it’s Berkshire). There were even worse answers from her, but I have already forgotten them.

Needless to say, that team won no money, but I was left, as I often am, concerned about the state of this country, and about the cultural-educational level of the population.

It especially concerns me that —it often seems— the least-educated young people are going either into teaching or into journalism.

There are secret cabals, often with occult bases, pursuing specific lines of attack in the msm. Only an informed investigative force can even begin to identify the culprits and deal with them.

I still wonder whether Farage got a huge offshore payoff for his treachery to his own followers during the 2019 General Election. I should not be surprised if he gets a peerage (as well) in the “Boris” resignation honours list. Claire Fox getting one must have been a kind of down-payment, or declaration of intent.

Piers Morgan— a major System mouthpiece. What a disgusting sentiment he tweeted, too, apart from being totally illogical. I suppose that one should not expect too much from a broadcaster whose education peaked with his attendance (on a journalism course) at Harlow College of Further Education, Essex.

As if GPs and A&E personnel know anything much in detail about the virus(es) or the agenda behind the vaccine(es).

For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul?“…

If you just step back and look at what has happened to our society specifically in the past nearly 2 years, it is more than alarming; one could say frightening. The 2022-2055 agenda is already clearly readied by the secret cabals and ruling circles: travel restrictions, political repression, mass elimination, microchips under the skin to track and control hundreds of millions of people on both a mass and an individual basis, while at the same time tearing apart European race, culture, and way of life.

This will not be opposed, not at all effectively, by actions such as marches, vigils, letters to newspapers, tweets, blogs etc.

“Panicdemic”

PROFESSOR CARL HENEGHAN: I’m a GP on the frontline, and I don’t think we’re overwhelmed with Covid” [Mail on Sunday]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10324747/PROFESSOR-CARL-HENEGHAN-Im-GP-frontline-dont-think-overwhelmed-Covid.html

The readers’ comments should give both main System parties pause.

Piers Corbyn

It is being reported that Piers Corbyn [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piers_Corbyn] has been arrested. At nearly 0200 last night. Why the KGB style?

This police habit, that is of relatively recent usage, of arresting fairly innocuous suspects in the middle of the night, or early in the morning (by which I mean before 0900 hrs) has become ingrained.

When I was at the practising Bar, I was asked once (around 2002) to advise in a case (a potential action against the police) involving a woman accused of having (though never charged with having) thrown a stone at a neighbour’s car following an incident connected with an ongoing local problem over limited parking space in a close.

In fact, that woman never was charged, and there was in fact no evidence that anyone had thrown a stone, nor even that the damage had been caused by a stone: the slight damage to the car may anyway have occurred by accident, without human agency.

The point is that that woman (a married mother of school-age children, and a medical secretary without previous convictions of any kind) was arrested at 0700 in her own home, at a time when she and her family were half-awake and about to have breakfast. She was taken away in front of her young daughters, and held in a police station for about 5 hours before being released without charge.

I think that there have to be placed statutory curbs on this kind of police behaviour. There are of course dangerous offenders, or fugitives, who may have to be arrested at night, and without any warning, who may be armed, or who may be planning an imminent attack of some sort. Any other kind of suspect should be arrested at a civilized hour and in a civilized way. Indeed, it was not necessary to have arrested the woman in my story at all, and I suspect that the same is true of Piers Corbyn.

It was not wrong of the person posing as PM to hold a reception or party; what was wrong was that he and his fellow clowns prevented, by law, “ordinary citizens” from doing the same. The hypocrisy, and “entitlement”, and mendacity was wrong too.

Wouldn’t it be great to see these people (MPs, ministers, msm drones too) dragged away, and then transported East?…

https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/b/marc-wadsworth-wins-libel-case-against-jewish-chronicle

Once again, the Jewish Chronicle propaganda newspaper has to pay out for having defamed someone.

Occasionally, I see tweets by all sorts of mentally-disordered persons about me, including how I allegedly “defame” this or that Jew, System MP, msm drone, and/or other incompetent. Sometimes such tweets urge others to sue me. In a few instances, even the said Jews, mental cases and/or incompetents threaten to sue me. Those tweets make me smile, and sometimes laugh.

When I was a practising barrister (until 2008), I was not very active in the fields of libel and slander, but was asked to advise on such issues from time to time. The only matter that got as far as trial (in the High Court) was some years before I was Called to the Bar.

In the English-language version of his memoirs The Oak and the Calf [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Oak_and_the_Calf], the famous Russian writer and historian of the GULAG system, Alexander Solzhenitsyn [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Solzhenitsyn], had implied that a Romanian exile called Flegon [https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/1430648/Alec-Flegon.html] was controlled by the KGB. I was asked, informally, to advise on the matter, which was going to trial imminently, with Flegon acting as his own advocate.

Not permitted, as a mere (belated) student, to speak, I advised during the two-week trial via notes passed to Flegon by his “assistant”, a dark and nervous Jewish girl. I myself had to be absent much of the time, sometimes because I had to attend tutorials at the Inns of Court School of Law at Gray’s Inn, not too far from the Royal Courts of Justice.

On one occasion, I sent a note to Flegon, who was addressing (and wasting the time of) the judge. I then left the court. Apparently, the judge then asked to see my note! Fortunately, the judge liked what he had read and told Flegon that he would be well-advised “to listen to what your adviser has written to you“!

Flegon was awarded (by a civil jury) £10,000 damages, plus costs. My first “case”, and my first “judicial commendation”!

Notes: I have just seen this: https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.13173/wienslavjahr.8.2020.0240, by one Alexander L. Jacobson of Princeton, New Jersey, I presume from the University. Could not even get the nationality of Flegon right, describing him as “Russian”! See also: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A4%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%B3%D0%BE%D0%BD,_%D0%90%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BA.

Reverting to me as potential fantasy defamation defendant, I fear that, in the American phrase, potential claimants have a “sad row to hoe” and a steep hill to climb.

For one thing, while it is possible to launch a defamation action on a no-win-no-fee basis, that really only works where the case is both more than arguable, and also where the defendant has assets sufficient to satisfy at least the claimant’s costs, as well as any damages.

In my case, I admit that my assets are few. That impecuniosity is however a suit of armour for me. I am, in practical terms, “unsueable”.

In theory, a defamation action could be launched against me, with the aim of getting an injunction to restrain me from defaming XYZ person or persons. However, I would fight very very hard. I know the law pretty well (even now, though I admit that I am rather rusty), and would have no compunction about using every avenue open to me, including appeals.

Beyond that, most of that which idiots describe as my “libel” of others is not “libel” at all (eg because in law “mere insult”), or even where prima facie “libellous” is true and justifiable, or is published as justifiable opinion, or is published otherwise lawfully and justifiably.

I wish that tweeters would learn before they tweet, not only about law but in general.

Still, if anyone wants to lose a couple of hundred thousand trying to pursue me, that is their business…they would lose out even if (which I doubt) they were to meet with success in court.

So far, and after many years, no-one has even tried, and only one or two have even threatened (unconvincingly, at that).

Laurence Fox is, in his own person and in his political flounderings, a socio-political morality tale. Virtually lynched for making a few unexceptional and unexceptionable points around free speech, he soon became a minor aspect of “controlled opposition” to the System.

Fox is unwilling to stand up for real free speech, and not once has the bastard ever said a word supporting or defending the real champions of freedom of expression in this country, those who have suffered greatly for standing up for Europe’s future: Jez Turner, Alison Chabloz, and (if I myself say so) me (among others).

No word of criticism of the Jew-Zionist element has crossed the lips of Fox, yet that alien element is not only behind much of the assault on free speech, but also behind much of the present migration-invasion.

Fox has even set up his own joke political party, which decided not to stand a candidate at Batley and Spen recently, because it might harm the Conservative Party vote!

Now this individual begs to be let back in to the System msm, and so pledges fealty to the contemporary decadence…

Strange. I just had a sudden and brief craving, at not even 0600 hrs., for cherry brandy (not Kirsch), a drink I have not had for many years, maybe 15 years or more. I could almost taste it. Truly, the human mind is complex. The “craving” (more like a memory, really) was not for alcohol as such: I drink rather little these days (certainly compared to years long ago in London, Kazakhstan, the Caribbean, and France). In fact, I have not had a single alcoholic drink for five days and, like a reformed alcoholic (at least in fiction), I can recall exactly when and what it was (last Tuesday, a glass of Remy Martin cognac).

The Sun “newspaper”

I do not regard the Sun as worse than the other tabloid, popular, or once-popular, newspapers. They all push a similar —and basically Jewish-Zionist— socio-political System agenda, as do the suppposedly more “serious” newspapers.

Incidentally, that is not “just” me talking, and is not “just” “neo-Nazi” propaganda. Rupert Murdoch himself said, in 2014, during that particular episode of Israeli-Jewish slaughter in Gaza, that the Press in the UK should be (even) more pro-Israel, because the “British” Press was owned largely by Jews. There you have it. From the horse’s mouth…

As I say, I do not obsess, as do the sadly-limited pseudo-“socialist” Twitterati, on that one rubbish newspaper. In fact, in my London chambers (when I started in practice at the Bar) in the early 1990s, the first thing I did on entering chambers on any particular day was to go into the Clerks’ Room, say hello to the Clerk, pick up my post and any waiting briefs (and cheques), and take a look at Page 3 of the Clerk’s Sun, always lying on his desk. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Page_3.

Well, political correctness did away with the harmless fun of Page 3 years ago, and in view of the fact that it was the only thing of any use in the whole newspaper (bar, arguably, the racing page), it is hardly surprising that the Sun, in its print version, is now likely to fold, given its £200M loss recently.

I dislike the Sun as I dislike most of the (((controlled))) Press. No more, no less. https://www.theguardian.com/media/2021/jun/11/rupert-murdoch-writes-down-value-of-sun-newspapers-to-zero.

He seems not to have considered the point, though, that at least some of “the measures taken” about or around the virus “situation” may have been (almost certainly were) part of a conspiratorial and transnational agenda. The Great Reset etc… i.e. not “a mistake” but coldly deliberate.

Admittedly, I had little time for Neil Oliver’s unthinking views about the Second World War on the Coast TV show years ago, but credit where due…

I was blogging about this over a year ago. Life is unfair. That is not news! Is it “fair” that some people (not uncommonly mediocre types) inherit hundreds of thousands of pounds, millions of pounds, even hundreds of millions? Two names by way of example: Zac Goldsmith; Prince Harry…

Sadly, injustice and unfairness are rife. Not that we should not strive for the better; that, after all, is why I blog, in the absence of something more direct. However, when we talk about the effects of an official policy, we have to recognize that, often, one group will prosper because of it, while another will suffer.

Those “SAGE” (DUMB— Department Under Matt and Boris) idiots really must be put back in their boxes. Stalin would have shot that Michie woman (who is in fact some kind of Marxist-Leninist, I believe I read).

A reminder of mortality

I happened upon a notice from a well-known London criminal law set: https://www.farringdon-law.co.uk/news/farewell-to-our-true-gentleman-franco-tizzano. I then saw a Twitter announcement dated a few months ago to the same effect:

I was once slightly acquainted with the deceased. I had a few short conversations with him when we were both law degree and Bar Finals students (in the then terminology). I also encountered him a couple of times when I returned from the USA in 1993 and was doing my “second six” months of pupillage, when the fledgling barrister can earn a little money by appearing in court.

I recall that we happened to meet at Thames Mags not long after I had shaken the dust of New Jersey and New York off my shoes. I was doing the first appearance of a Jamaican accused of smuggling cocaine dissolved in rum.

Thames Magistrates Court, Tower Hamlets, London
[the not very beautiful Thames Magistrates’ Court, East London]

Tizzano was some years younger than me but was ahead of me at the Bar, I having spent a few years or part-years in the USA.

I recall that, on first meeting in 1984, Tizzano had explained that he came from Naples but that (if memory serves) he had been at an English boarding school. I understand that his father was a judge in Naples.

I remember that I remarked that “Naples is the warm heart of the world“, according to Shelley, to which Tizzano retorted, “was he mad?“!

Tizzano was a rather serious young man, in the grave Italian way. Someone with a certain dignified presence. Jet-black hair and a black moustache. I see that, in later life, that was complemented by a beard.

I understand that he had a busy criminal practice in later years: I would sometimes see his name in newspaper crime reports, though I think that the last time I saw Tizzano in person was in 1993 or 1994.

A reminder that we are all on Earth for a limited time, and must do what we can while we are here.

Talk about adding insult to injury! James Cleverly, proud possessor of a degree in “Hospitality Management” from the University of West London.

Martin Bashir

What is not generally known about Bashir is that, in 2018, he stalked persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz. That was around the time that Alison Chabloz was convicted of posting her songs online, after a lengthy and very morally-dubious campaign (both overt and covert) by Jewish Zionists of the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”.

Bashir stalked both Alison and her aged parents, with whom she was staying at the time. Bashir travelled to the small village, in the Peak District of Derbyshire, where they lived, and after failing to be granted an interview with anyone, hung around the village and the house itself. He was seen trying to hide in the garden of the house, standing in flower beds etc. He even peered through firmly-closed windows.

Bashir is not the only very sleazy person to have effectively headed the BBC’s virtually God-free religious output. There have been some very dubious characters in the past too.

Bashir followed the now-usual BBC “religious” agenda: sanctify Jewish things, normalize Muslim things, ignore or twist anything Christian.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Bashir

As for Alison Chabloz, at time and date of writing she is still in prison (having been sentenced on 31 March 2021) for having made some more or less true remarks about Jews on an internet “radio” broadcast. If not released earlier, she will be released next week, having by then served about 8 weeks (half of her 18-week sentence minus 4 days).

Hitchens overrates his influence (and the extent to which his opposition to the “panicdemic” was tainted by association). The anti-lockdown and anti-shutdown side lost the argument with the public not because “lizardist” and other people also opposed the shutdown, and not because the opponents of “lockdown” were mistaken, but because the bulk of the British people have become spineless serfs of the “woke” police state. That applies even more to the retirement-age Middle Englanders than it does to the young and middle-aged.

The “lockdown” shutdown has also been promoted by massive propaganda campaigns, utilizing whipped-up and unnecessary fear as a driver.

Then there is the fact of the huge amount of public money thrown at the “furloughed” employees and also some businesses. Hush money?

The fact is that only 1 in a thousand UK residents has been killed (even on doubtful statistics) by the Covid-19 virus. Yet the campaign continues. In the rural, semi-rural and semi-suburban part of Southern England where I live, there are over 180,000 inhabitants (in a rather large and dispersed population and area). In the past month, there have been 8 deaths of people who have been tested and confirmed as having this virus, and who died within 28 days of testing (even if later killed in road accidents).

Still, even on the face of the absurd statistics, look at the proportion! Only 8 out of 180,000+…

About 1 out of every 22,500 local residents.

The facemask nonsense also continues, with a push now to continue it indefinitely, despite the fact that the medical effect is minimal. There again, the real reason the System wants facemasks has nothing to do with any virus.

Radio 4 Today Programme

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

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

BBC Four

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Conclusion as to seriousness: serious but not existentially so.

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

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

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

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

Alison Chabloz

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So is the USA. So is the UK. So is France.

Perhaps so, but if the idea was to prevent “subversives” from taking over the BBC or heavily infiltrating it, the policy was a signal failure in the wider sense. The BBC, at the head of the UK msm, has been the flagship for the socio-political collapse of Britain, and has supported every rotten cause of the past 50 years.

The most necessary thing in the UK is not even, as a first step, a political purge, but a purge of the mainstream media in general. Not just lying news media and “journalist” scribblers but, inter alia, the whole range of “celebrities”, comedians, show business types etc.

Henry Hendron

Readers of my blog may have seen, in previous blog posts, reference to Henry Hendron: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

Hendron hit the headlines at first in 2016: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3580931/Celebrity-lawyer-bought-designer-chemsex-drugs-BBC-producer-killed-teenage-boyfriend-spared-jail.html

Some readers have assumed that I must have or had a personal dislike of Hendron. Not so. In fact, I had never even heard of him until I read about his Old Bailey trial, very lenient sentence, and his even more lenient treatment by the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal(s) before which he subsequently appeared.

My animus, if such it be (and incredulity), is a result of the incredible difference between the way in which I was treated (for having tweeted 5 tweets, completely true and accurate and [but] hostile to Jews or at least Jewish influence) and Hendron’s treatment for his egregious defaults, as chronicled. Read my blog post.

I also found it incredible, reading his tweets, that Hendron seemed incapable of thinking and writing logically, or of constructing a literate English sentence. However, the Bar is now a dustbin, so what more can I say? If the Bar thinks that it is OK to have, as practising barrister, someone of Hendron’s type, unable to write or argue coherently, and of (in several ways) dubious character, then that is a matter for the Bar dustbin-profession as it now is.

Now I see this: https://www.legalfutures.co.uk/latest-news/high-court-overturns-barristers-suspension-due-to-lacuna. It turns out that Hendron had his lenient Bar sanction made even more lenient by reason of the fact that, being already suspended at the time of the proceedings, the Tribunal had no power to notionally suspend him further, or indeed apply ay sanctions to him, because he was not a “regulated person” at the time.

I had an exemplary record as a barrister, received several judicial commendations, was mentioned favourably in the main legal directories, and was never suspended from practice, but when the Jewish lobby (“UK Lawyers for Israel”, nominally) instigated my disbarment (complaint 2014, disbarment late 2016), I had not been in practice since 2008, and had not had a Bar “practice certificate” since that time. The disbarment was a completely politically-motivated msm farce orchestrated by a pack of Zionist Jews (“UK Lawyers for Israel”, many of whom also belong to the malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” who have persecuted Alison Chabloz for years).

At the said proceedings (more specifically, in the considerable documentation that preceded the actual hearing), I made the point that I had not been “regulated” since 2008 (a point, I might add, that Hendron, in his own case, missed…the Counsel instructed by the Bar Standards Board —very honestly— raised it against his own interest).

I was (wrongfully) disbarred (on that basis and in any case), but (to give them credit at least for that) the Bar Standards Board actually wrote to me a year or two after my highly-publicized hearing (Google “Ian Millard barrister” and read what the msm said about me at the time). The BSB then gave me the chance to apply to have my disbarment overturned, on a basis akin to that of Hendron. I suppose that must have been somehow connected with the internal Bar fallout from Hendron’s matter.

In other words, I would still be a barrister today, had I applied. However, for me, there would have been little point, I having had no intention to resume Bar practice, though I suppose that it would have denied the Jew-Zionist pack and their “antifascist” “useful idiots” the opportunity to describe me on Twitter, frequently, and with unsurprising lack of originality, as “disgraced and disbarred barrister Ian Millard” or, as at least one mentally-disturbed Jewish woman often does, on Twitter, as “disbarred Barista“! Well, if I say so myself, I do make a rather good cup of coffee, though I have never done so as a paid occupation…

As far as the egregious Hendron is concerned, his travails continue, and he is at present again before a Bar Disciplinary Tribunal. I believe that it presently stands adjourned.

I had thought that Hendron was being given very lenient treatment because either he was (I assumed) from a very privileged background, or that he “knew too much” about illicit activities of senior members of Bar and Bench. Well, I read somewhere that Hendron went to some comprehensive school, so that would only seem to leave the “knows too much” theory…

The influence of the Jewish lobby on Wikipedia content is very obvious.

I actually did not know, until yesterday, that supermarkets are open on Good Friday now. The materialistic 24/7 multikulti society…

…and much of the State and society generally in the UK has now been suborned by the “you-know-whos”…look at the Alison Chabloz saga of the past few years; look at the BBC and other msm output, as well.

Well, there it is— the new multikulti panicdemic UK police state, staffed by toytown police drones. Notionally done “for good reasons”, the police and others no doubt imagine…

As with Professor Brian Cox, there are two sorts of “famous scientists”, the ones who make new discoveries and undertake research of importance, and those who are basically people making careers and money out of appearing on TV, radio, in print, and on official committees. Incidentally, if anyone knows of any great discoveries made by either Brian Cox or Alice Roberts (the latter of whom I had not heard of until 5 minutes ago), please let me know and I shall publish a few lines about it. I should not wish to be unfair. I do not wait with bated breath, however.

Yes, but…Monsieur Rentoul, those other crises were not used as a method of bringing in a police state by stealth. The Great Reset and the Great Replacement (etc). The “panicdemic” is being so used, and not only in the UK.

Image

Well, this week I got 6/10, thus again beating John Rentoul who scored 5/10. I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 7, and 9 (and had to rack my brains to get question 10).

When I lived in Kazakhstan, in 1996-97 (a full year), I invited a friend at the Bar (let’s call him “Teddy”), a train buff par excellence, to visit me in Almaty (former Alma-Ata) by train. I found out what that would entail: a Eurostar journey from London to Paris or Brussels, then a train journey to Moscow, where he would have to change trains by going to another of Moscow’s several mainline stations. Then a 77-hour journey across the Russian countryside and then steppe to Almaty.

Like the character in, I think, one of Evelyn Waugh’s novels, Teddy thought that “abroad was bloody”, and told me that, because of his ideological opposition to the Channel Tunnel (I first heard of UKIP from him, maybe a year or two before a lady with whom I lunched told me about it), he would be unable to come. I think that the real reason was that he was nervous about negotiating his way across Moscow alone and with not a word of Russian; that, and the sheer discomfort of 77 hours on a post-Soviet express train. Thus Teddy missed out on seeing a then rather green and pleasant city full of pretty girls.

I quite like trains, though it does help, on a really long journey, if you are lucky enough to have the sort of accommodation used by the Tsars of all the Russias, or that of the Orient Express. When Andrei Sakharov was recruited to Stalin’s hydrogen bomb project, he travelled to the secret town where it was to be made aboard his own train car at the rear of a normal passenger train. The carriage contained a bedroom for Sakharov and his wife, a dining room, a kitchen operated by a cook, a lounge area, and accommodation for his several NKVD bodyguards (or should that just be “guards”?).

My own longest train journey was an involuntary one in the 1980s from Vienna to Ostend, and very uncomfortable it was. On the morning of the second day (departure having been in early evening), I got out at Cologne, wearing only a dressing gown, in order to buy pretzels on the platform. It was then that the train started to move. Had it not briefly stopped about 10 seconds later, giving me time to get aboard (non-central closing doors, thank God), I should have been stuck at Cologne Station with almost no money, no clothes, and no proper shoes; no passport either.

London freedom demonstration

I did not watch any TV news yesterday, so missed this:

Exactly.

The implication is clear: “lockdowns” either do not “save lives” or are actually counterproductive. Lack of sunlight (and so, vitamin D) seems to result in higher “Coronavirus” infection rates. Being cooped up inside with others (at home or at offices etc) is worse than being (some of the time) outside.

Sweden has had no “lockdowns”, yet has done better than the countries, such as the UK, that have had such draconian restrictions. Those who say that Sweden is different because Sweden “has few people” and those “widely spread out” are merely showing their ignorance: most Swedes live in cities, towns, and suburbs, just like the British.

I had an interesting experience a few days ago. I attended a routine eye screening test appointment at a medical centre in a small town in the South Central part of England, near the coast. About 6 miles from my home.

I was about 20 minutes or so early, so sat in my car reading a book and observing. The car park was small, and I parked right by the main entrance of the medical centre. Early afternoon.

Apart from the main entrance, there were two large signs, one red, one green, with arrows pointing left and right, both directing persons with booked vaccination slots to go this or that way. I wondered whether the red was for people with “Covid-19” or other symptoms. Or it may be that the red was for people in a higher-priority tranche of the population. I saw two people enter by those entrances. Both looked entirely normal and well, on the face of it.

For my own appointment, the routine eye test, I entered the building. Deserted. Not even a receptionist. In fact there was one very old person sitting, masked, in an ancient parka, on a chair in the waiting area, where the chairs had been widely-spaced.

After a minute, a nurse or assistant in a dark blue uniform asked me to wait (and requested that I put my disposable facemask above my nose!) (I should add that, in the test itself, the girl doing the test said that it could only conveniently be done by having the mask below the nose). I was called bang on time. Very good.

The eye test itself was conducted in a friendly and professional manner and took but a few minutes. Before eventually leaving the building, I noticed that the waiting area was now deserted again; even the old fellow in the parka had shuffled off. I was interested to note, while sitting in the car for a while (to ensure that my eyesight had returned to normal after the test) that a few more vaccination people (about half a dozen in all, in about 30 mins) entered or exited the building via the side entrance-points. All looked entirely healthy, whichever entrance they used.

I had been to that medical centre once before, a few years ago. It was fairly busy then. Where, now, are all those other patients? Looks as though many many people who were being seen, in pre-“virus” times, are now not being seen, or only seen in small numbers. As Peter Hitchens or someone said last year, to some extent the National Health Service has become a National Covid Service.

As to the routine screening I myself attended, and though I doubt whether it was really necessary in my case, I was grateful that, under the NHS system, such precautionary measures are available for free. In the USA and some other countries (most, in fact), many miss out, and some then suffer and/or die because they develop conditions which, had they been detected at an earlier stage, might well have been treatable.

The NHS needs a real overhaul, but the principle is good.

Sticks and stones…Professor Ferguson can be well satisfied: despite all his predictions having been proven wrong, wildly wrong at that, he is apparently still listened to at Downing Street, still welcome and treated with almost absurd respect on the BBC Today Programme and by that ghastly little bumboy on BBC PM; and he is still, very likely, banging his married “ho” in contravention of the stupid anti-virus “rules” he himself laid down. In fact, I should not be surprised, in our new “reward failure” UK, were Ferguson to be awarded some shopworn “honour” in the end.

“What the hell” it is…is the sharp end of the emergent UK multikulti “Great Reset” police state. A UK where a remark —however true or accurate…that’s irrelevant— about a Jew or a black can get a British person hauled to court, a Britain where a Government-funded commission headed by an ex-Muslim repression-fanatic can report that statements not illegal (even under the present very repressive laws), and not even based on (however defined) “hate”, should be made illegal (!) if anti the doomed multikulti society.

Parliament is now a rubber stamp, as is the Monarchy, and the Opposition is exactly as ruled by the Jewish-Zionist-Israel lobby as is the Government. In reality, there is no true Opposition.

As for the courts and legal system, they are signed up to the repression too. The few real dissidents (like me) are marginalized (expelled from the Bar in 2016, from Twitter in 2018, both times by the conspiratorial manipulations of a pack —effectively the same pack— of Jew-Zionists). https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; and see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

That’s the Dutch all over. In 1940, German forces invaded and occupied the Netherlands in 4 days (5, officially); Soviet forces would have taken 2 (had there been an invasion in the 1980s). In the 1990s, Dutch Army “soldiers” abandoned the civilians of Srebrenica to their fate after the Dutch were given the choice of fighting or leaving.

I used to really respect the Dutch and at least some of their liberality (in the 1970s), but even Dutch family friends began to understand, from the 1980s onward, that the liberality had led to licence. Also, to mass immigration, migration-invasion, crime, and general decadence.

Now look: liberality-licence-disorder-dictatorship, and a police force worse than that of Belarus or Russia. As often happens, Plato described the process first (in The Symposium). The cartoon below also fits.

It fits UK policing too, now.

Most msm journalists, like (probably) most members of the public, still think that this is all about a virus (one that, worldwide, has only killed about 1 person in every 4,000, and in the UK about 1 person in every 1,000 —if that, bearing in mind the faked statistics—).

This is not about a virus. It is about “The Great Reset”, openly promoted by the World Economic Forum and in the pages of the Financial Times, Economist, and other System “insider” publications.

The virus situation has simply provided (as the WEF admitted in its tweets) a convenient opportunity. The virus has been weaponized, and the majority fooled.

In the all-important 33-year cycle, 2022 is the next really significant year. The year that will set the agenda for the subsequent 33 years, as 1989 set the agenda for the past 32-33 years.

George Galloway, though once a good effective orator, is ideologically unsound, inconsistent, self-seeking and, ultimately, just silly.

Hitchens is right insofar as marches and demonstrations achieve little or nothing, beyond boosting morale (if the numbers are impressive). As for the categories Hitchens mentions, he is correct about their surrender, but a future social-national state and, before that, movement, will not rely on those categories as they now are.

Diary Blog, 12 March 2021, including some thoughts about value

Early thoughts on value and cost

The news that a piece of “digital art”, or electronic art, has been sold at auction for USD $69 million was puzzling. Apparently, such art can be copied for free, without any cost at all.

In other words, the $69,000,000 art can be replicated and used effectively without cost. This is not quite the same, or goes beyond, having a paper or other copy of, say, the Mona Lisa. Any copy of the Mona Lisa is probably subtly different from the real one, whereas (according to BBC Today Programme) the copy of the piece of “digital art” will be exactly the same as the original.

It seems that what is auctioned is not the digital art alone but the art plus an electronic key to the original, which allows the owner of that original to access the blockchain for it, blockchain being defined as follows:

Blockchain is most simply defined as a decentralized, distributed ledger technology that records the provenance of a digital asset“; or

In the simplest terms, Blockchain can be described as a data structure that holds transactional records and while ensuring security, transparency, and decentralization. You can also think of it as a chain or records stored in the forms of blocks which are controlled by no single authority” [and see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blockchain].

In other words, what the purchaser has bought for his $69 million US dollars is the right to change the electronic artwork, just as the owner of the Mona Lisa or other material art has the legal right to add a moustache to the subject, or to take up an axe and chop it to pieces.

In fact, thinking about it, presumably the artwork, if copied by a third party for free, can also be changed for free (though not the accepted “original”). That means that the $69 million US dollars is buying only the notional ownership and nothing else.

The auction of of the $69 million artwork challenges our concept of value. To me, buying “digital art” for more than pennies is completely stupid, but I concede, if it is a concession, that paying out 69 million dollars for any artwork is absurd, even if that artwork were the (original) Mona Lisa or, say (a favourite of mine), Man in Armour by Rembrandt (believed by some to be a representation of Christian Rosenkreutz, said to have been modelled by Titus, son of Rembrandt).

We have recently seen Bitcoin jump (and fluctuate) wildly, having reached the height (today, as I write) of over £41,000 (USD $57,000), having been valued initially in pennies. I have written previously about Bitcoin: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/12/10/thoughts-about-bitcoin/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/02/20/diary-blog-20-february-2021/.

Bitcoin can be sold back, i.e. cashed in, though its real world use is limited. “Digital art” can be sold on as well, if the owner of the art, i.e. holder of the blockchain key, can find a purchaser (in my opinion, mug) willing to take it on.

In my first blog post about Bitcoin, I examined money. Why do we value tokens of monetary value such as banknotes? It all comes down to confidence.

In the end, does Bitcoin have less “legitimacy” or “value” than paper banknotes, or electronic entries on the ledgers of known banks? Maybe not, but that is perhaps less a validation of Bitcoin than a criticism of what we call “money value”.

Has capitalism reached, with the auction of digital art (and, arguende, with the sale of “real” art for sometimes hundreds of millions), a stage of decadent absurdity which may be a predictor of worldwide economic and social collapse? For me, the crazed heights at auction (of both types of art) are a sign of poor judgment as much as anything.

It does make me wonder what kind of person would rather have a piece of digital art than USD $69 million! Does that make me a Philistine, or just not a mug?

Is there a case for artworks of designated importance, of more than a certain age (100 years plus?), and valued at more than a designated level, being held and owned only by specified museums and galleries around the world? It’s a idea (of my own), anyway, though of course that would not stop speculation in artworks of younger age (and we have seen works by many quite recent artists, including Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, even Damien Hirst, go for huge amounts). Neither, of course, would such regulation stop speculation in digital art, not for decades to come, anyway.

For me, this latest art speculation is a societal warning flag.

The odd logic of tweeter “@MenziesBj” reminds me of the similar thinking of not a few instructing solicitors when I was at the practising Bar. There is a phrase in use among barristers, “solicitors go elsewhere“, reflective of the fact that instructing solicitors often stop instructing particular Counsel for no obvious reason.

You would imagine that, if as a barrister you do well in a case, then the solicitor who instructed you would instruct you again, and if you did not do well, would not instruct you again. In fact, while that sometimes does happen, often the reverse is true. No-one knows why.

Barristers are, especially when not in the very top sets, very dependent on their own relationship with solicitors. I was once slightly acquainted with one barrister, in a friend’s chambers, who had a very good practice despite (my impression) being not particularly intelligent. 90% of his work (25 years ago) came from one solicitor (not even one firm, but one individual solicitor in one firm).

One fine day, as Kafka put it in The Trial, that solicitor stopped instructing him; according to that barrister, for no obvious reason. Result? A serious problem for the barrister, obviously. 90% of work gone means about 90% of income gone.

That (nameless) barrister was one of those men who combine a relentlessly politically-correct attitude with a certain amount of sex-pestery, as my friend in his then chambers had mentioned to me. Many years later, one of his pupils, a young woman, made an official complaint about him. I do not know all the details, but he was fined £4,000, and may have been lucky not to have been dealt with more severely.

A personal nexus between a solicitor and a barrister, though inherently precarious, can work in favour of a barrister. I knew another barrister, though not well, who was a member of another friend’s chambers. The former had a friend from university who had become a salaried lawyer in a large organization. That employed lawyer directed work to the barrister. In one year, such work totalled, in fees, some £600,000! That was nearly 30 years ago!

Not quite as good as winning the lottery (or being born into a fortune), but almost.

I remember seeing that pub in the 1980s, when travelling down the Old Kent Road in Southwark. So now it is apparently a restaurant?Vietnamese, not Chinese, according to the Internet. Sign of the times.

That Forest Hill (South London) street scene from ?1900 looks far better than the same scene today (or when I last saw it, about 35 years ago).

Another place that I used to know. I visited that museum [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horniman_Museum] a number of times in the 1980s. The Horniman was founded by, I think, Annie Horniman, the heiress to a tea fortune. She was a member of the Golden Dawn: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermetic_Order_of_the_Golden_Dawn; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_Horniman, but I see just now that I am mistaken as to its founding…it was her father who actually founded the museum: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_John_Horniman

Heather Burns, policy manager for the digital rights organisation Open Rights Group, said: ‘It’s needles in haystacks, and this is collecting the entire haystack.

‘We should have the right to not have every single click of what we do online hoovered up into a surveillance net on the assumption that there might be criminal activity taking place.’

Privacy International’s advocacy director, Edin Omanovic, echoed a similar sentiment and said: ‘Make no mistake, as warned, the Investigatory Powers Act (2016) gives authorities across the UK some of the most far-reaching and draconian surveillance powers found anywhere in the world.

When the Bill was proposed, we were promised the most transparent surveillance regime in the world. Yet, here we have a secret experiment where two secret internet companies have reportedly been collecting internet browsing data about individuals’ online activities.” [Daily Mail]

“Male curfew”

I missed this latest piece of crazed nonsense, which was being reported upon yesterday, it seems.

https://news.sky.com/story/sarah-everard-green-partys-baroness-jones-suggests-6pm-curfew-for-men-12243194

“Jenny Jones”, aka “Baroness” Jones [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jenny_Jones,_Baroness_Jones_of_Moulsecoomb].

A Green Party peer has suggested a 6pm curfew should be introduced for men in the wake of Sarah Everard’s disappearance.

Baroness Jones of Moulescoomb told the House of Lords that such a move would “make women a lot safer, and discrimination of all kinds would be lessened”.” [Sky News]

What a total loony, even for the Green Party!

Who is she? “Before entering politics, Jones worked as a financial controller in London. She attended the Institute of Archaeology at University College London as a mature student, studying for an MA in archaeology.[1] She spent approximately 10 years as an archaeologist in the Middle East, studying carbonised plant remains, before embarking on a career in politics.” [Wikipedia].

So she was an office bod for a number of years, became a mature student and then studied carbonized plant remains for a decade…oh, and she was a member of the pathetic London Assembly for 4 years, and failed to become an MP twice (in different London constituencies, coming 4th in both elections, getting 6.5% of the vote in one, then 2.9% in the other). She also tried to become Mayor of London, but only received about 4% of the overall vote.

Not a stellar political record, but hey!…this is the UK, where serial failure is rewarded so long as the idiot is “anti-racist” and/or (stand up, Boris-idiot!) pro-Israel. So she was elevated to the House of Lords!

Sometimes, I think that this country is terminally screwed.

Her previous utterances? Let’s see…”She was outspoken about numerous issues including what she called mayor Boris Johnson‘s demonisation of youth through the use of “baseless” rhetoric on “soaring gang-membership and rising knife-crime”, suggesting the mayor created an unhelpful climate of fear.[28] ” [Wikipedia].

As for her curfew idea…look at her!

Jesus H. Christ! If I saw that walking towards me after dark, I would go home at once, lock and bolt my door, and impose a curfew on myself!

Well, “Dr.” Raw does have a point. True, Labour is closer behind the Conservative Party than was the case at the 2019 General Election, but that is mainly because the Jewish press (both msm and otherwise) has almost stopped demonizing Labour now that Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer is leader.

Still, looking at the incompetence and nonsense of the present ZOG/NWO regime at Downing Street, it might have been expected that Labour would be miles ahead. It might be, were it a real Opposition, but Starmer just supports everything that “Boris”-idiot is doing, but says that it should be done more! Lockdown, the facemask nonsense, you name it. On immigration, Labour cannot attack the Government’s poor record, because Labour still favours mass immigration…

Overall, Labour looks pretty sad.

An elderly lady I once knew used to say, in the 1980s, if a picture of Brittan came up on TV, “doesn’t that snout just need kicking?!

The first tweeter has a “prison” mentality: obey the “rules”, denounce “rulebreakers”, and maybe the “authorities” will “allow” you a period of outside exercise every day…

Ironic…if I am not mistaken, that “antifascist” tweeter, “@jdpoc” (who in the past has tweeted against me) was quite recently tweeting something online about his own “issues”…

Par for the course, it seems.

I could write a book about the immigration cases I did in the early 1990s; I appeared before immigration tribunals at first instance, in the Immigration Appeal Tribunal, and also in the High Court (on judicial review applications).

Some cases were run of the mill, involving marriages etc, others involved fugitive members of foreign secret services, and yet others alleged members of extremist or “terrorist” groups (mostly Kurdish).

Last word of the day…

MSM going mad about Russian police and their rough tactics. The Russian police are rough at times. Russia is a rough country. So what is the excuse of the Dutch police, who on the weekend were using mounted police, water cannon, and rubber bullets on pensioners and young women (among others) protesting about the “lockdown” repression? The Dutch mounted police were filmed cracking open the heads of fleeing protestors with heavy clubs.

Strangely enough, the UK msm went mad today about Russia, but forgot to mention the Netherlands. BBC propaganda was blatant. All very (((odd))).
