Here we see the weakness of a structure such as NATO.
“One for all and all for one” (the motto of The Three Musketeers) sounds very gallant, and does provide a member-state with greater security (knowing that all members will pitch in if only one is attacked), but has this weakness: that if a member-state, even a tiny and (dare one say?) insignificant one, picks a quarrel with a neighbouring state (however large and powerful that neighbouring state may be), and if, as a result, the large neighbouring state then takes military action against the little state, all NATO members are obliged to take arms against that large and notionally “aggressor” state, despite the fact that it is the little member-state that has caused the problem.
I do not want to be too hard on the Lithuanians, who suffered much under Sovietism, and during the Second World War, and who were helpless victims of great-power strategic moves during much of the 20th Century, but this latest action by the Lithuanian government could trigger a third world war if allowed to get out of control.
It is also, from the point-of-view of Lithuanian self-interest, an action of stunning stupidity. After all, should NATO and Russia fight in that region, even using conventional weapons, which country is likely to be flattened first? Quite…
Or was this Lithuanian action the result of orders from secret sources in Washington and/or London?
That “guarantee” was in fact worthless: “The British Chiefs of Staff at the time however noted that ‘we could give no direct help by land, sea or air’.” [Wikipedia, citing History Today].
Nonetheless, a mere 5 months after the proffering of the worthless “guarantee”, and when Germany invaded Poland in September 1939, Britain and France declared war on the German Reich despite not being able to assist the Polish government in any practical way.
Stupidity, or malice? At any rate, thus began the Second World War. As for Poland, instead of being invaded and badly damaged once, in 1939 (invaded by Germany from the west, and the Soviet Union from the east), it was later also a battleground in 1944, as Soviet forces pushed west into Central Europe.
I wish not to see Europe, including the UK, devastated by a third massive war, and on an even more destructive scale, but it seems that the political puppets of the NWO/ZOG matrix have other ideas.
I have no idea what the circumstances were, but the tweeter has a point. There are too many jobsworths, too many compromisers, and too many people all too ready, for careerist reasons, to kow-tow to the forces of Evil (posing as the Good), as I remarked yesterday with reference to the fact that not one barrister helped me or gave one word of support when I was (not only wrongfully, but actually unlawfully) disbarred in late 2016: as to that, see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.
There are exceptions, of course, but speaking in broad-brush terms, the blacks cannot create a civilization, cannot maintain one without help and guidance (look at the former colonies) and, all too often, cannot even live in one without being a destructive or nuisance element in society.
“Boris”-idiot runs the government of this country in a shambolic, inept, and corrupt way, just like some fraudulent, Levantine, part-Jew, part-Turk. Why is that? Oh, no, wait…
As for that weird little Jew, Fabricant, if his claim that he was once some kind of SIS agent (or officer? Surely not?!) is correct, then it does tend to support the view that “British Intelligence” is unfit for purpose.
This (read that report) is a trend that has been going on for 2-3 decades now. I could recount numerous examples from my own experience. One of the least egregious would be that involving a pupil in my own chambers in Exeter (in the early/mid 1990s, I was practising in London, but after working and living in various places overseas from 1996-2002, returned to the practising Bar in SW England in mid-2002).
The pupil to whom I refer (and who shall be nameless, partly out of courtesy but equally because I have actually forgotten her name), was from Northern Ireland.
Now I have to say that I find the Northern Irish accent one of the most difficult in the UK to understand easily but, in addition to that, the girl in question had a pretty bad speech impediment.
You might ask why on Earth someone with a bad speech impediment wanted to go to the Bar in the first place, or was not sidetracked into other career options at an earlier stage, but there it is. Of course, not all barristers spend much of their time in court.
Now, said girl pupil was, like many Bar pupils, far more obliging and pleasant when a pupil (and no doubt trying to get along pleasantly with members of chambers) than she was once taken on as a tenant or —as I think she was, cannot now recall exactly— squatter (a quasi-tenant but with no rights of tenure). I myself only saw her in passing, really, but did note that, once she was actually working as barrister, she seemed rather abrasive, judging admittedly by the very few times I saw her at (though not in) court. I never had any trouble with her myself, and in fact saw little of her.
Now the interesting thing was that not only did chambers (notably in the person of the main Clerk to Chambers) champion that young woman, but claimed that instructing solicitors loved her. Well, maybe. Seems strange to me that someone with both a speech impediment and an accent that was more like a gargle could be at the English Bar doing court work, but there we are.
I harbour a suspicion that people tend to bend over backwards to be nice, so to speak, to the physically-disabled, as many do also to some of the ethnic minorities. That is fine as far as it goes, but not when it amounts to a kind of lie.
Incidentally, I seem to remember that the person noted above returned, in the end, to her native Ulster, and maybe left the practising Bar.
Digressing further, I happened, out of curiosity today, to look at the website of the successor chambers to the one to which I belonged in Exeter from 2002-2008 (and which, an amalgam of two or three sets, is now the largest in the South West outside Bristol). I saw that several people that I liked are still there, and I saw that not only (as I knew already) is my old head of chambers now “His Honour” (a Circuit Judge) but that someone else I knew in chambers, a former magistrates’ clerk, with an encylopaedic knowledge of some aspects of (in particular) criminal law, is now also “His Honour”. Unless it is just someone with an identical name, but I think not.
That last was a nice little man, very polite and pleasant, who wore his considerable knowledge lightly. I seem to recall that he had written a well-received book on sentencing. Glad to see that his knowledge and diligence has been rewarded.
I was amused to see that two people who had rather more than a spat in chambers are now both members of that set. I liked both of them. One was a then-young man who was very eager to progress chambers (my wife called him a “Young Turk” for his enthusiastic diligence, but in these dumbed-down times, I suppose I shall have to explain that he was not a real Turk!). He was married to a pretty young woman whom I believe I met once at some chambers reception or other.
The other barrister, also young, was an ex-solicitor whose grandfather had founded one of the largest firms of solicitors in the South West. A very pleasant person.
Those people, with others in chambers, used to go shooting together, an activity of which I thoroughly disapproved. I disapprove of all hurt done to animals, particularly for sport or “fun”. I even disapprove of shooting humans, under most circumstances. Ironically, most of those I liked best in chambers were the shooters.
Anyway, one day, those two members of chambers were out shooting when a pheasant fell onto the head of the wife of the “Young Turk” and knocked her out in the field. Whether that preceded or not the affair that she apparently had with the other young barrister, I know not. It later transpired that, after much bad blood, I was the only member of chambers to be unaware of the feud that ensued, my mind being occupied by other matters (or as my wife would say, “in the clouds”) and, also, the fact that I was, by then, only spending half the month in the UK, the rest in France and some other countries.
I suppose that the two former antagonists have either buried the hatchet or (and/or) come to the realistic conclusion that that set is more or less “the only game in town” (in Exeter) now. Time heals all wounds, they say (though I remain doubtful of that, speaking generally). The events in question were after all some 15 or 16 years ago now.
“and no need to mention the War (I mean ‘the vaccines‘)”…
A pretty good writer, in my opinion, with an easy-reading style (judging by the few books of his that I have read).

Interesting analysis, and I can agree with much of it, though I do not accept that neurotic bighead, Gordon Brown’s, bailout of the bank swine was right at all— better to have let them go bust, imprison the wealthy bankers, then step in to help those with say £200,000 or less on deposit; and let the affluent and wealthy go smoke.
I agree that the “austerity” nonsense of the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne was disastrous, causing misery to millions without in any way dealing with the real problems of the financial sector and “national debt”.
Plenty of msm comment to the effect that Putin is washed-up, that there may be a coup d’etat etc. Hard to say.
Some of the “Putin is finished” comment (including that with origins in UK/US intelligence services) may be wishful thinking. There is no obvious replacement for Putin, as far as I can see. If there were, he would not live long once Putin noticed him!
We hear that the war in Ukraine is lost. Is it? The pockets of Ukrainian resistance in the south and south-east have just been stamped out. The UK msm may call the surrender of the Ukrainian forces at the Azovstal plant near Mariopol/Mariupol an “evacuation“, but few are fooled by the “transformative language”. The Ukrainian forces left alive surrendered to the Russian forces.
To my mind, there are two, maybe three, main factors why Russia has not used even more brutal tactics in order to win militarily in Ukraine. The first is that Ukraine, after all, was almost part of Russia, certainly very closely linked, for a thousand years or more, albeit that the history is complex: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Ukraine.
The second reason that Russia has not as yet pulled out all the stops is that use of the most brutal weapons and tactics (e.g. battlefield or tactical nuclear weapons, e.g. flattening completely all major Ukrainian cities not in Russian hands) might bring down NATO response despite the inherent dangers in that.
The third reason why Russia has not brought to bear all its enormous power is that Putin wants to take over at least something of a functioning agricultural and industrial economy after any Russian victory, an objective impossible of realization if the cities are totally destroyed, the population killed or driven out, or if the land itself is contaminated.
I note that the Jew Zelensky, puppet head of the Kiev regime, has now said that diplomacy, not war, is the way to end the conflict. Does that betoken a perceived weakness in the Ukrainian position on the ground, or does it mean that Zelensky’s cabal thinks that the Russian military position is weak? You could look at it either way.
Zelensky, however, has obviously been told not to cede any territory to Russia de jure, not even Crimea, where 90%+ of the population is Russian and only about 2% Ukrainian now.
Speculating here as advocatus diabolus, some in the Russian camp may be thinking of a “Devil’s alternative”— destroying Kharkov, and even Kiev, almost entirely, as well as other places, driving out the Ukrainian population, then eventually repopulating the part of Ukraine east of the Dnieper with Russian settlers.
That would be a terrible and almost Biblical scenario, but it has happened in Europe previously, most recently in 1944-1946, when German populations were killed and/or driven out of East Prussia, Galicia, Pomerania and Bohemia, replaced by Russians (Konigsberg, East Prussia/Kaliningradskaya oblast), Poles (East Prussia, Pomerania and Galicia), and Czechs (Bohemia/Sudetenland).
How can this be seen as acceptable?
Interesting short historical documentary.
Many readers of this blog will be aware that persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, was imprisoned (again) in mid-April for poking fun in song at some aspects of Jewish behaviour. She was sentenced to 22 weeks, which in terms of actual custody is 11 weeks (77 days). She has now served 38 days, meaning that sometime tomorrow (Monday 23 May 2022) she will be at the halfway point of her actual custodial sentence.
Imprisoned for singing a song. Britain has fallen far…

A social menace that has been treated with kid gloves for far too long.
…and another part of that is to divide and rule over the motoring public, as witness the recent slew of fake “opinion polls” saying that “most people” want those over the age of 90, 80, 70, and even 60 either to be barred from driving or forced to retake a driving test (most people, even at 20 or 30, would struggle to pass the test again years after having passed).
…yet we hear all the time from System sources that the “Great Replacement” is a mere “conspiracy theory”. Indeed, Prosecution Counsel in the recent Alex Davies trial made that very point, if I recall the newspaper report aright; yet here we are, and we see that the Guardian (no less) is citing a United Nations report on it.
King was certainly a grade-A hypocrite.
The American lawyer, William Pepper, who defended King’s alleged assassin, James Earl Ray, was a door tenant at the very odd chambers where I did my pupillage in London (in 1992-1993). I met him once.
I remember that a young lady I knew laughed on seeing the board by the entrance showing the names of all members of chambers, and which had him down as “Dr. Pepper”, like the root beer. Well, in her defence, she was only 15.
I happened to see the pdf link below, which is a tribute (a collection of eulogies) to John Lloyd, a barrister who was in my chambers when I practised in Exeter (2002-2008):
John Lloyd, who was born in 1941, died in 2017, a fact of which I was unaware until I saw the link yesterday.
I usually follow the maxim de mortuis nihilnisi bonum (“about the dead, nothing if not good“), but Lloyd did die about 5 years ago, and some matters are of historical interest.
I rather liked John Lloyd, someone who was unfailingly polite, and with whom I shared a room at Chambers, though he was rarely at his desk. I was under the impression that most of his work was done in London or at home. I believe that he had property in both London and Exeter.
Lloyd had taken on the English or Oxbridge eccentricity displayed by some affluent and financially-successful persons, of riding an ancient bicycle, in his case to Chambers, at which times he changed his “Gromyko” black wide-brimmed hat for a bike helmet.
Lloyd was one of the highest-earning members of Chambers (I believe in the £300,000+ bracket, which would be good now, let alone 15-20 years ago). His work came, I was told, mainly from Labour Party-controlled local councils in London.
I myself only encountered John Lloyd once in Court, in — I forget which— Plymouth or Exeter County Court, and in an unusual matter in which three members of Chambers were briefed for different parties in the same case; incidentally, the matter ended satisfactorily for all in the end.
Though I liked John Lloyd, I knew that he had been anti-apartheid, and had strong political views, though (like me) he rarely spoke about political matters in Chambers. I have to say that, despite quite liking him, there was some element there that had me wondering whether he was entirely trustworthy or open. Nothing concrete, just a vague sense of something hidden.
John Lloyd was diagnosed with cancer in or about 2007, but lived for another decade. I myself ceased active Bar practice at the end of 2007, though remained notionally in practice until mid/late 2008. I think that I last saw him sometime in 2007.
I was aware that John Lloyd had been dropped as prospective Labour candidate for Exeter several years before I met him, but did not know much detail, though I knew from someone at the Bar that it was connected with his having given evidence against a terrorist in a bombing case in South Africa. The local Exeter Labour Party was (quelle surprise) all in favour of the anti-white terrorism in South Africa, though by the time Lloyd was binned (mid-1990s), South Africa was already under ANC control.
The “ARM” started to blow up electrical-power pylons etc before graduating to the operation that destroyed it and also led to convictions for most of its small membership. That operation was the planting of a bomb in a whites-only waiting room at Johannesburg Railway Station.
One old lady of 77 (or as the apologists would have it, “only” one person) was killed; many others “only” injured. One was a 12-year old girl, Glynnis Burleigh, the grand-daughter of the murdered old lady.
The bomb at the railway station was mainly made of sticks of dynamite wrapped around a core consisting of cans of petrol; it seems that some phosphorus was also included. A simple but wickedly-deadly device.
It is now claimed that the bomb was “symbolic”, having been placed in a whites-only area. Tell that to, say, Glynnis Burleigh.
It is also pleaded, by (in my opinion) apologists, such as a London (I think Jewish or partly-Jewish) lawyer whose father was apparently the bomber, that “a warning was given“.
You can see from Wikipedia etc that the same claims are made about the Jerusalem bombing of 1946 as about that in Johannesburg in 1964: a “warning” was given, and “the authorities may have deliberately not acted on the warning” (in order to incite hatred against the bombers). Pretty unconvincing in both cases.
As a matter of fact, the Johannesburg “warning” was telephoned to police only six minutes before the bomb exploded; the police did act on the warning but by that time the device had detonated.
Incidentally, there may even have been a link between the two bombings. It seems that a leading member of the terrorist cell in South Africa was an Israeli Jew who had held senior rank in the Israeli military apparat:
“The [Johannesburg Railway Station bombing] operation was planned by Lionel Schwartz, who was ARM’s most militarily experienced operative, having served as an officer in WW2 in the British army, and in the IDF in Israel’s 1948-49 Independence War. He served as a senior (Brig. General) in the IDF until he returned to SA in 1953 or 54.” [Wikipedia].
Having said that, there is no direct evidence (that I have seen) of a link (i.e. that Schwartz was also involved in the 1946 bombing).
The said Schwartz may also have been a Soviet agent, which would fit:
“In recent years, however, it has been suggested by Eli Bardenstein in his article ‘Traitor or Liar?’ in Maariv (22 July 2003) that Lionel Schwartz, a key Soviet spy who penetrated the highest echelons of Israel’s political and intelligence establishment in the 1950s, and who was heavily involved in the Lavon affair, handed over the Israeli network to Egypt“. [Spies Against Armageddon]
There is a suspicious dearth of information online about that Lionel Schwartz Jew.
Returning to John Lloyd, he had (probably fortunately for him) been arrested a day before the bombing, as the South African authorities rolled-up the small ARM network.
It is claimed that Lloyd was “tortured”; he was certainly ill-treated, made to stand in one place for two days. If taken to an extreme, that might amount to “torture”: in the days of Stalin, the “stoyka” or “standing” was a recognized technique of the NKVD, with some prisoners having to stand (because forced into vertical oubliette-style tiny cylindrical cells and kept there for days) until they died or “confessed”.
“I was made to stand on one spot. It is a devilish torture for would-be heroes. You torture yourself. I stood for two days. On the evening of the second day, a bomb exploded on the Johannesburg railway station. The police told me that 20 people had been killed. It was not until months later that I learned that, in fact, only one person had been killed.” [John Lloyd in the Independent].
Note the weaselling again, though; “only” one person killed (and no mention of the terrible injuries suffered by many other victims).
Whether because of his interrogation, or because he was shocked at the bombing having been carried out at all, or with such carnage, Lloyd agreed to co-operate, and eventually testified against several of his former comrades. It is also a fair conclusion that Lloyd did not want to be incarcerated with them. In return for immunity from prosecution, Lloyd turned State’s Evidence (became a prosecution witness).
Mandela, of course, morphed from being just a failed law student and failed or would-be terrorist leader into the West’s secular “saint” of the age, having mellowed in his (actually eventually quite comfortable) incarceration (in the last few years he was in a house reserved for him alone, and even had his own chef and other servants!).
John Lloyd never did become MP for Exeter. The Conservative Party made much of his early “terrorist” activities, while the Labour Party binned him because he had (as they preferred to look upon it) turned coat and “betrayed” his former “comrades”.
Ben Bradshaw, a mediocre and rather dishonest person who later became a Cabinet minister (and noted expenses cheat and/or freeloader), became MP for Exeter in 1997, as well as an “ultra-loyal” Blairite, and is still sitting there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Bradshaw.
So there we are. A few reminiscences, and a few more-general thoughts.
Postscriptum: I should add that, though I did spend some time in Rhodesia and Botswana (in 1977), I have never visited South Africa (unless you count my almost-overnight plane change at Johannesburg, also in 1977: Gaborone-Johannesburg-Frankfurt). I believe that my maternal great-grandfather is buried, or memorialized, at Cape Town, though.

I agree, in that you see newspaper readers’ comments, Twitter twit comments etc to the effect of “let’s bomb Russia” or the even more brain-dead “bring it on!“. People sitting in suburban England, who apparently cannot wait for their entire world, home, family etc to be utterly destroyed by nuclear attack. “Idiots” hardly covers it…
Then add in the pseudo-machismo. “Britain can take it” etc. Yes, Britain, which will not exist except in terms of geography after a nuclear attack, can take having all its main (if not all) cities and towns destroyed, irradiated, all the people killed, or mutilated and/or mortally-irradiated, all supplies of food and water gone, all services (NHS, financial, police, fire, even sewerage) gone. As I say, “idiots” hardly even covers it.
The West is weak. Britain is very weak. Look at the Russians. Look at the Ukrainians. They both have national and national-cultural sentiment. That has been large wiped out in the UK. A high proportion of the UK population is now not really British, nor even white European.
I understood decades ago that The Economist is more or less the house journal of what one might now call the “New World Order” [“NWO”] or Western establishment.
Apparently about a third of the “Ukrainian” “refugees” are actually blacks and other non-Europeans.
I hope that it survives the present conflict intact.
Well, once again I beat political journalist John Rentoul, scoring 7/10 as against his claimed 5.5/10. I did not know the answers to questions 5, 6, and 9 (had I thought for a moment, I would have recalled No. 5).
War with Russia is “unthinkable”; it would result in the near-obliteration (and nuclear pollution) of the British Isles. There are a large number of air bases, some naval ports, a couple of submarine bases, early-warning stations, not to mention electrical power generators such as nuclear power stations. Also, the centre of government and politics (London).
The only slight positive amid a forest of negatives would be that, in the inevitable chaos following a nuclear missile attack, certain hostile elements could be eliminated.
I do not think that I can usefully add to that which I have written in previous blog posts about how the “White Australia” “Lucky Country” I knew for a few years of childhood (in the late 1960s) has become, incredibly, a stressed and multikulti biosecurity police state.
One of the most telling indications that Britain has been sliding into a kind of fake “communitarian” fake “caring sharing” police state is that, during 2020 and 2021, and up to the present, Lord Sumption, a former “Law Lord” (Supreme Court justice), has been presented by the msm, System politicians, and of course the know-nothing pro-facemask, pro-lockdown Twitter mob, as a kind of lunatic or eccentric, to be ignored, sidelined, or just laughed at.
I have blogged fairly extensively on Ukraine in previous blogs over the past week. There are number of reasons why Russian forces may well invade at least the Eastern Ukraine area (i.e. East of the Dnieper river), as well as the Kiev area. There are few if any compelling reasons not to.
The Ukraine has been a shambolic corrupt mess for 30 years, and its military preparations look like something out of the First World War, with a bit of WW2 Dad’s Army thrown in. In fact, that Daily Mail account refers to British-sent weapons arriving in Lvov, in the deepest part of Western Ukraine, the least likely area to be occupied by Russian forces.
As I have blogged in recent days, if there are sudden acts of sabotage in Kiev or elsewhere in the region (probably executed by Spetsnaz contingents), the countdown will have begun, and the “war” will have begun, in effect, major Russian armoured and other formations following within a few days. I imagine that the initial phase will be short, perhaps less than a week. Putin holds all the cards of importance.
Talking of the corruption of the past 30 years in Ukraine, I am reminded of an egregious carpetbagger whom I encountered in the late 1990s.
A lawyer originating in Virginia, the said carpetbagger —I shall call him “Z.”, not so much to protect the guilty but so as to make a libel suit even less likely— had an office in the City of London and one in Kiev. He wanted me to come to work with him, and probably relocate to Kiev before too long. I had recently returned to London from a year in Almaty, Kazakhstan, and was interested. I had never been to Kiev, but knew that it was considered, in Soviet days, as the greenest (the most “treed”) city in the Soviet Union, and in other respects quite pleasant.
I found Z.’s London office utterly chaotic. Just him, a secretary, and a rather pretty receptionist whom I had encountered somewhere previously, though I could not recall where exactly. She remembered me too.
Z.’s own office looked like a bomb had hit it. Anyway, I agreed to do some work for a few days on a trial basis, but soon found that Z. was a very strange individual, despite stellar paper qualifications. He once again proved the “rule” that, if someone has half a dozen degrees from various countries, he is either a brilliant near-genius, or a charlatan. Z. was no near-genius, in my opinion anyway.
It soon proved impossible to work with a near-lunatic of that sort. I left after 2-3 days, and needed to shake Z.’s cage a little to get him to pay up even a modest amount in recompense.
I did see Z. once more, about a year or two later, travelling on the Central Line. I was standing, he was seated. He pretended not to have seen me, and kept his eyes averted. Perhaps he was afraid of being assaulted (I confess, the thought did cross my mind!).
As it was, I exited at Chancery Lane and he disappeared with the train, eastwards.
There is an odd coda to this little reminiscence. I was talking over lunch, a year later, with someone who might or might not have been connected to SIS (I am still in two minds about that). Somehow, Z.’s name came up, and the luncher told me that Z. had a rather bad reputation in Kiev, partly because he paid girls aged about 16 to walk, naked except for high-heeled shoes, on Z.’s back as he lay on his front…
The luncher added that he himself found it distasteful, not least because Z., a person in his 40s, himself had a daughter of the same age.
Whether the luncher had some particular reason to tell me about Z.’s proclivities, I have no idea. Perhaps the Italian white wine had affected his tongue, though somehow I doubt it. Anyway, if there is one thing I am fairly good at, it is keeping a secret, so Z.’s oddness has not seen the light of day (via me) until now, about 24 years later. Anyway, as said, I got the story about the naked 16-y-o girls secondhand, and have no idea whether it is true.
I see now that “Z.” (whose name does not contain a Z) still has those London and Kiev offices, though.
“Picked up off theKent 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.
The government want to keep power so they force the modellers to make models in order to justify their power and have the country turn a blind eye.
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.
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.
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 TheChase 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.
“PROFESSOR CARL HENEGHAN: I’m a GP on the frontline, and I don’t think we’re overwhelmed with Covid” [Mail on Sunday]
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.
Who cares whether it is “racist”? “Racist” = “culturally and genetically healthy”!
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.
The mask of Evil is coming off all over Europe now, and beyond.
Wouldn’t it be great to see these people (MPs, ministers, msm drones too) dragged away, and then transported East?…
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.
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”!
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).

God…I saw that rubbish a couple of times. Even worse, if possible, than Question Time.
When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, he found the Israelite tribes engaging in all forms of decadence. Those involved had to be exterminated for the good of the people as a whole.
Why do people like this rarely get official honours or awards?
Ha ha! I have to admit that, the more the pseudo-health police state tries to control me, and the more idiots I see wearing facemasks even when cycling or walking in the open air, the more I feel that way myself!
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.
Rather a bold, sweeping and, indeed, ahistorical comment, but he is at least on the right side here. 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). Or maybe would have put her in charge of the GULAG organization. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulag.
Quite funny. Trudeau junior.
Though I preferred Trump in 2015 to Hillary Clinton (because she was pushing for war(s)), I always said that he was a squawking parrot in a gilded cage, guarded by Jews. The NWO/ZOG System “managed” this interloper until another System President could replace him. Having said that, much of what he said was correct.
…and of course (half-Jewish) Ruth Smeeth, having been rejected by the British people (the voters of her former constituency), was “found” (just like other Israel-lobby ex-MPs such asTom Watson, Michael Dugher, Mary Creagh etc) a suitably well-paid sinecure, in her case as CEO of “Index on Censorship”, where she took over from a Jewish scribbler called Ginsberg… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Index_on_Censorship#CEO.
Ironically, Ruth Smeeth (a former secret “confidential contact” of the U.S. Embassy in London, and who was also a propagandist for the Israeli lobby organization BICOM), is also a member of the Board at the basically Jewish organization “Hope not Hate”, notorious for trying to censor and/or “deplatform” people who have the “wrong” views…
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
