The UK, a country in which, in recent years, a barrister (me) can be disbarred for tweeting five completely true and accurate tweets about society generally (see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/); a country in which an ex-soldier with an exemplary record in Afghanistan and elsewhere (Jeremy ‘Jez’ Bedford-Turner) can be imprisoned because he had the temerity to suggest that Jews be expelled from the UK in a humorous speech; a country in which a professional singer and entertainer (Alison Chabloz) can lose her job because a few malicious Jews targeted her employer, and later find herself actually imprisoned for posting a satirical song or two on the Internet!
You can see the way the UK is going. It is not going that way by accident…
If the world suffers great calamities soon, it may be necessary to institute a “revaluation of all values” in rebuilding it.
The old institutions have become corrupted empty shells which are filling with Evil. They may have to be eliminated.
Please refer to my last comment, above…
Note Hitchens’ timescale. 1989…the last pivotal year; the previous one was 1956, the one before that, 1923. The next pivotal year will be 2022, and the international conspiracy/consensus is trying to seize it, and with it the agenda for the 33 years starting then. Inter alia, the “Great Reset”, and with it, “the Great Replacement” of people in Europe and elsewhere.
These people should be on our side!
There is no point in refighting the war of 1939-45 (on the Eastern Front, mainly 1941-45). The Reich has passed into history, but so has the Soviet Union, and indeed Sovietism itself. We are where we are. Let’s build a new world together!
…and about 95% of students at Oxford and Cambridge now get either “Firsts” or “2:1” degrees. A First was once a coveted rarity. Now? Bog-standard, really. The holders of such degrees may consider themselves highly-educated, but most are not.
The most important thing for our society to do, once it has “cleared the decks” of major problems, backward elements and impediments, is to —metaphorically and, perhaps, eventually, actually— “aim for the stars”.
For practical purposes, the human brain is infinite.
Human beings are still at or near the start of their development. IQ tests are only a guide to the present intelligence of an individual or a people. The “average” is usually taken to be 100. A simplification, of course [see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligence_quotient].
I believe that the high-IQ club, MENSA, takes members above a score something like 140 or 142. It is not particularly uncommon for persons to score well above that level, though such persons are within the top 2%, and in some cases 1%, of the population. I myself was tested (in the 1980s, before marriages and an ocean of red wine) at 156. I know at least one person who was once tested at 169, which (I think) is somewhere towards the top of the useful scale, though I am no expert in these matters.
The figures can only be taken as a rough guide to reality. According to the Wikipedia article cited above, persons in “professional and technical” occupations average, supposedly, around 112, while persons who are medical doctors, lawyers etc score an average of 125.
It is often mistakenly thought that a score above some set figure indicates “genius”, whereas in reality “genius” imports what Wagner, in response to a question about his own genius, called “universal currents of Divine thought“.
One sometimes sees young persons whom the popular Press describes as having “genius” IQ. Their strong suit is usually mathematics. A number of years ago, a young Jewish girl was one such. She entered Oxford University at age 12, having passed the entrance requirements at age 10. She is now a professor in Israel. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Lawrence
Such people rarely take a leading role in society, either because they have no interest in doing so, or because their mentality is narrowly-focussed, or both.
As Valentin Tomberg impliedly noted in one of his books, such people have often achieved capabilities beyond the norm precisely because they have abandoned general growth in favour of a narrow and specialized advance. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meditations_on_the_Tarot
When we talk about society in general, we talk of a broad advance (or decline) across the board. It is well known that Oriental ethnic groups, especially Chinese and Japanese, have a high average IQ. Northern Europeans too. Some ethnic groups, particularly many sub-Saharan African ones, have a markedly low average IQ.
This is not a (no pun intended) black and white issue. Even the Wikipedia overview [see above] outlines some of the uncertainties and complexities.
There is also the point that mere intelligence is not everything. “Emotional intelligence”, often called “EQ”, is also of importance. A common mistake is to imagine that morality, compassion etc are “add-ons” to intelligence. Not so. In our present age, the two are distinct, but to imagine that evil-doers are generally more intelligent than the well-intentioned is an error.
Valentin Tomberg [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg] examined the good/evil and high intelligence/low intelligence binaries in some of his work. He also noted, as did Steiner, the eventual appearance on Earth of two opposed groups, which would become opposed cultures, civilizations, and then races, one evil, one good.
Let us ask, as an exercise in ideas, what could we do, in a circumstance where we have the power to choose, to create a higher societal form.
For the purposes of this exercise, I am assuming that the most unpleasant and backward groups in present UK society are no longer present.
The starting point must be the educational system, which is obviously not working. A simplistic view would be to say “replace present State and other education with Steiner (or other) education”. My problem with that would be that, from what I have heard, even Steiner education is by no means perfect.
However, there obviously needs to be considerable reform of both school and university education. The whole “degree” and “master’s degree” and “doctorate” system should really be junked, as no longer fit for purpose.
“Education” should not be merely a matter of stuffing heads with facts (important though that can be); still less, a matter of stuffing heads with propaganda (often false). It should be a matter of general, including moral-ethical, upbringing, with the aim of allowing to blossom each child’s capabilities and talents for the ultimate good of society.
Institutes should be established, which would have the specific aim of increasing the cultural and intelligence level of the people. A great deal has been learned in the past century about how to increase intelligence in the short-term: diet, music etc.
During the 12-year currency of the German Reich, there were institutes established to study esoteric matters, as well as history. The best known was SS-Ahnenerbe [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe].
There was a generally spiritual as well as practical side to German National Socialism.
Even today, there is considerable interest in SS-Ahnenerbe, and later developments.
While it would be excellent to establish an institute such as SS-Ahnenerbe in the new UK state, the Ahnenerbe’s focus was mainly on the past, whereas for me the orientation has to be towards the future.
A new society can be more than just an administrative and economic unit; it can be an entity that takes its evolution into its own hands and quickens it. The aim: higher evolution. A super-race, with capabilities that would seem to us, today, to be superhuman.
Well, I blogged about that yesterday. No wonder Fleet Street newspapers (and the msm in general) were so uncritical when Blair and his regime (eg the egregious and fairly ghastly “Mo” Mowlam) concluded “peace” with the IRA (which despite still being able to set off bombs and rockets, had essentially been defeated militarily by 1997).
Quelle surprise: “EU…mirroring Israeli model“…
Well, there might have been real resistance, but in fact there was almost none. Meanwhile the “Great Reset” plan of the international cabals continues to be implemented. (nb. I think that tweeter “@PaulWaddington3” means “defiance“, not “defence“).
Just one more symptom of the madness of the present day.
I wonder whether someone would like to do a similar graphic, though more complex, of the UK, taken over slowly since the late 19th Century. The graphic would show infiltration into business, the legal professions, politics, the mass media and other areas, including rental property (both commercial and residential).
Keir Starmer is not himself a Jew, but he is married to one (a property lawyer), and their children are being brought up as if full-Jewish, including the Jewish supremacist religious holidays. In a word, Starmer is just a puppet.
As I have said many times before, the international cabals know that the next significant year in the 33-year cycle is 2022. It will be the most significant since 1989, which was itself the most determinative since 1956.
That cycle, and 2022 as the next really important year, is why everything seems to be moving so quickly now— the worldwide virus “crisis”, the “black lives matter” nonsense (in the still-majority-white countries), the endless blacks and browns on every TV show, every TV ad etc in the UK, USA and elsewhere. The Great Reset and also the Great Replacement, in accordance with the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan.
My own I.Q. was once (long ago!) tested at 156, which is considered high, the global average being taken to be 100. The average for UK university students is supposed to be 125 (though I am citing a figure from the 1980s, before “everyone and his dog” went to a “university”, so the average for students must surely be lower now…). I believe that the British “dating club for eggheads”, MENSA, takes candidates with I.Q. levels above 140 or 142 (I cannot recall exactly, offhand).
That Christopher Langan biog. is an interesting read in terms of the “Nature v. nurture” debate. As Wikipedia notes, it is interesting to speculate as to whether Langan would have had a very different (easier? Less turbulent?) life had he had such background (and family wealth) as the Jewish scientist, Oppenheimer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Robert_Oppenheimer].
Hard for the sort of mediocre, self-describing “Left” Twitter-twits and/or Jews often noticed to describe someone such as Langan as “a knuckledragger”, but no doubt many would still do it. They certainly do it to other intelligent and well-educated social-national people; they have done it even to me! Fortunately, such ignorant critics are irrelevant both to me and general society.
High IQ is better than low, but high morality (in the sense of the Good, or compassion etc) is more important, or equally important; perhaps more important. We are used to thinking, perhaps from popular thrillers etc, of “clever” and “bad” as going together, whereas “bad” often goes with stupidity, in fact. The future must be both “clever” and “good”.
Nature v. nurture. A debate which has been lively since the time of Darwin, and arguably since much earlier times. The Jesuits said, following no less than Aristotle, “give me the child until he is seven, and I shall give you the man.”
Rudolf Steiner was right to place education in the forefront of society. The German National Socialists, with very different aims and methods, did the same. As did the Soviet Union. None was 100% “right” in terms of what was done. Even Waldorf (Rudolf Steiner) schools are subject to criticism, sometimes ill-founded, sometimes not.
Whatever one may say about different forms of education, there is no doubt that, in the wider sense (meaning upbringing from birth, as well as more formal education), it is key to the future of the whole world.
People vary widely in their abilities. It should be the job of educationalists to discover what abilities a child has, and then to nurture them, both for the good of the child and for the good of society. Vocational dissatisfaction is at the root of many of the ills of society.
Also, it is not just a matter of stuffing the child with as much knowledge as possible, important as that may be. “EQ” (emotional intelligence) must run alongside I.Q. This idea is not new. After all, in exaggerated form it appears in Tom Brown’s Schooldays:
That formula, however, all but chucks out the idea of “IQ” and an education of facts. It is more akin to the basic National Socialist education of 1930s Germany. Not for nothing did Hitler admire the Boy Scout and Girl Guide movement of Baden Powell, and emulate it via the Hitlerjugend and Bund Deutscher Mädel.
The better ideal takes into account both the formation of intellect and the formation of character, including that of helping others: Durch Mitleid wissen (“Through compassion to knowledge”, the motto of the Knights of the Grail).
I wish that the “educational debate” in the UK were more about the themes noted above, and less about meaningless “grades”, “degrees” etc; and far less about “equality” (whether absolute or “of opportunity”).
I wonder what it would take to “raise the sense of personal threat” felt by members of “SAGE” (aka “DUMB”, the Department Under Matt and Boris”)? Or MPs, for that matter…
Of course, many MPs have contracted “the virus” and are still around. Are they incapable of learning?
Britain at the end of 2020
Yes, that is right. As Hitchens says; 1998, not 1997, I think. I remember reading about it, in an overpriced Sunday Times bought when I was living in Alexandria in early 1998.
Peace at any price…in 1997, the USA had its own agenda anyway. From the USA, the UK seems very much a sideshow (part of Europe/Eurasia), so Northern Ireland is “a sideshow of a sideshow”…
Ten persons, only two (or —unclear—four) of whom are white Northern Europeans. Britain’s crippled near future?
That sort of pseudo-SWAT militia is more now in evidence than previously. In the 1990s, they were mainly seen around Heathrow, often with smug semi-smiles on their faces. I often used to wonder what would happen in the event of a real terrorist outrage. Would the “robocops” really open fire with their Heckler & Kock MP5s? In a crowded terminal?! As seen often on Twitter, “genuine question”…
Having driven extensively in both Greece and Turkey (and in the Northern part of Cyprus), I am both unsurprised and (because I like the tweets of “European Housewife”) disinclined to comment!
I remember tweeter “Manon des sources” from when I had a Twitter account. She used to retweet my tweets occasionally.
Ah. If it is true that Ferguson is talking with (conspiring with?) Blair, then it becomes clear why Ferguson is still given a clear run on the BBC…
There has been a backlash, though. I notice that in Hampshire, where I live, the police command has decided to close a number of the local police Twitter accounts. Most were in fact interesting and informative, but I saw a couple which were obviously out of control. One was (it is not now tweeting and will be closed within a week or so) “@WatersideCops”, covering the western shoreline areas of the Solent, close to Southampton. That Twitter account was always pumping out propaganda about various things, particularly “racism” against “Roma” gypsies and so-called “travellers”, i.e. the caravan-dwellers once known as “tinkers”. Ironic, in view of the crime profile of the area (and areas around).
Often, though not always, civilian employees of the police are to blame for nonsensical tweeting.
Oh well…”Waterside Cops” will soon have to stop tweeting nonsense and start doing their real job better.
[Update, 2 January 2021: as of 29 December 2020, “Waterside Cops” were still threatening people who mocked their silly tweets! See below:
Nothing since then, so it looks as though the above silly and impotent tweet, posted not long before midnight —hm…—, will be the swansong of “Waterside Cops” on Twitter. Byeee!]
I suppose that I should not say more at present about the continuing persecution of the singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, the complaints against whom (like the malicious Jew-Zionist complaint made against me in 2017) have mostly been made by the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” in the person of Stephen Silverman of South Essex. Alison comes up for trial at the end of March 2021.
One has to ask, in general terms, how it is that a tiny fanatical pressure group has in recent years exercized such influence over the police of London, Essex, Derbyshire etc. Also, how it is that these Israel-fanatics are apparently welcome on LBC, Sky News etc. Well, I suppose that it depends on the (((political editors))) and on their (((bias)))…
Well, Enoch was right, in principle, about mass immigration, but as to mental hospitals, may or may not have been right. It is a complex problem. I agree, though, that he was, for all his erudition, often vain and silly.
Watched that excellent film, Waterloo. Rod Steiger is amazing as Napoleon, the man who changed the face of Europe even in defeat.
While watching I drank (probably too much) “blackstrap”, a mixture of cognac and port. A drink almost forgotten today, but which, before the First World War, was considered the drink of the Life Guards (officers) and (as and when permitted) Eton.
A good and warming drink, when taken in moderation.
Sometime in the near future, I shall post a blog article (as yet unwritten) distinguishing between political action and (where it crosses over into what is often called) “terrorism”. A grey area. For example, what about the “Resistance” and (on the Eastern Front) “partisans”, fighting the German Reich? What about those who took up arms in the 1920s and 1940s against the Soviet state? What about “anti-colonial” “fighters”, “terrorists”, or whatever? Jews in Palestine, Mau Mau in Kenya, various Arab “freedom-fighters” etc. What about “lone wolves”?
Is it merely that (only?) when such people are (maybe unofficially) under the loose direction of a recognized state, they are not “terrorists”? That is pretty thin from the ethical point of view.
So I shall consider the above questions and related issues in a later post.
As a Labour council leader in Derby, “He was instrumental in setting up Holocaust Memorial Day events in the city and rescinded the obsolete medieval proscription barring Jews from living in Derby.” [Wikipedia].
Stupid; the Jews hate and despise him all the more. They still tweet against him fairly often, even though he is no longer an MP and unlikely ever to re-enter Parliament.
For example, when I was on Twitter (the Jews had me expelled in 2018), he retweeted my stuff a few times, until a Jew told him what a terrible “neo-Nazi” I supposedly am. He then blocked me. Bad move. Anyway, yesterday’s news…Finished.
Heard on radio that someone called Scott, the divorced ex-wife of Amazon kingpin Jeff Bezos, has given away USD $4 Billion in the past few months to hundreds of charities relieving poverty in the USA. Apparently about USD $35 Million daily. She is able to do that because, prior to the “panicdemic”, she was worth around USD $64 Billion, and her wealth has increased by a further USD $25 Billion this year! In other words, even having given away USD $4 Billion, she is yet worth USD $81 Billion! Staggering. 81 thousand million US dollars!
Even Croesus might be envious!
I do not want to be too churlish. At least she is trying to help struggling people, and with a significant chunk of her wealth, something others with similar or more wealth (eg her ex-husband) are (in most cases) not doing.
What is wrong is the fact that any individual has that amount of wealth in the first place. I do not believe, really, that any one person should control even 1% of that amount of wealth (even that would be about USD $800 Million. That amounts to about £600M in UK money).
As far as UK people are concerned, I have no objection to someone having a million pounds, maybe £10M, but probably not £100M.
Bezos himself is apparently worth USD $186 Billion!
One of the disappointing features of world society is not so much the stinginess of many of the ultra-wealthy, though that is disappointing, but the lack of vision of so many of them.
The Wikipedia entry for MacKenzie Scott explains why she took that name after her divorce from Bezos (her maiden name having been Tuttle), but I wonder whether it is also a bit of a joke on her part, Scott McKenzie having been the flash-in-the-pan or “15 minutes of fame” hippy singer of 1967 (whose song I remember from when I was 10-11 years old, and at school in Middle Harbour, Sydney):
As I blogged recently: if “Boris” comes from Brussels with agreement (however poor), he is poundland Chamberlain waving his piece of paper; if not, then “Boris” becomes poundland Churchill, snarling “we shall never surrender” and offering (others) “blood, sweat and tears”…
I have blogged previously, from years ago, about how “Boris” is like a matrioshka, with nothing at all in the middle. No ideology beyond vague and irresolute free-marketism, no real ethical, spiritual or religious beliefs, no plan or programme politically, nothing except empty ambition. That is why his only policy suggestions are those of a 12 year old: bridges across the sea, artificial islands, cable-cars, buses, water-cannon etc.
The latest trial of persecuted siger-songwriter Alison Chabloz starts, and will almost certainly end, tomorrow, Thursday 17 December 2020.
Though the prosecution is under CPS aegis, the complaint against Alison was once again made by the malicious Israel-lobby “Campaign Against Antisemitism”.
All support at court will be welcomed by Alison. Westminster Magistrates’ Court, 181 Marylebone Road. Nearest Underground: Edgware Road (either District/Circle or Bakerloo lines). Doors open 0900 for 1000 hrs.
Saw another “alumni” contest. Wadham, Oxford, and some Cambridge college. It may sound immodest, but I think that I alone scored higher than both teams put together. The Wadham team included, as team captain, well-known journalist Anne McElvoy, who always seems hugely smug, and who seemed rather odd in her manner, as if drunk or drugged, though I suppose that she was in fact not. Surprisingly poor general knowledge from her and her entire team (which included the Jewish scribbler, Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland), though Wadham easily beat the Cambridge panel.

Below, from yesterday, but worth thinking about:
Looks like ignorant TV face Piers Morgan is finally (just) starting to wake up…
As for “lockdowns” supposedly “protecting the NHS”, the NHS staff have been protected (many are working from home, and not even at hospitals and medical centres) but the patients have in many cases been left to sink or swim…
The present Parliamentary system “needs scrapping“, too!
The present clownish government in the UK has no real, let alone radical or revolutionary programme to promulgate and execute. It is swept along by events. There may be an overarching “international conspiracy” “programme”, but that goes beyond this discussion and is being directed from secret sources. As far as the “Conservative” Party government led or headed by Boris Johnson is concerned, it really has no programme at all. Rudderless.
Boris-idiot resembles the jester or court fool of the mediaeval period, who is made “King for a Day”.
Who to blame? Obviously, firstly, Boris-idiot himself. It was his ambition to be “World King”, —Prime Minister is the nearest offered by the UK— that has led him to his present rank.
I blame also the Conservative Party MPs, who supported “Boris” as party leader, thinking that he would be popular with the voters. I blame, also, the 90,000+ (out of 140,000) Conservative Party members who wanted “Boris” to be their leader.
Most of all, I blame the uncritical mass media, the scribblers and talking heads of which have been promoting “Boris” openly for about 20 years.
What of the voters themselves? Yes, they, at least those that voted for Conservative Party candidates, are also to blame, but they were misled by the msm, which promoted “Boris”, and at the same time demonized Corbyn. The Jewish lobby was a large part of that.
Still think that you live in a “free and fair” “democracy”?
Here (above) we see Peter Hitchens offering a non-solution to the problem. Abstention, while it may send a vague message of sullen resistance to the System (eg if the voter turnout is 10% rather than the usual General Election figure of 60%+), achieves nothing beyond that. The same parties (in Hitler’s words, “the dirty democratic politicians”) will fight for that 10% just as they usually do for the present 65% or 70%), ignoring the non-voters.
Any similar graph showing world “Covid-19” statistics would be even more striking, because in the world as a whole a million have died, but of course that is out of eight thousand million! One death for every eight thousand people on the Earth.
Once again, above, Hitchens has no answer except to say “don’t vote” or “vote for someone/anyone else”! Parliamentary democracy as we have known it for the past couple of centuries just does not do its job any more.
Sometimes this country (as it now is) infuriates me, often it exasperates me. “Bloody Sunday” is one example. Whatever the rights and wrongs, the fact is that those events took place nearly 49 years ago. In earlier ages, Britain (Ireland maybe not) made history, good or bad, then moved on, to make new history. These days, everything drags on forever.
It is the same with the Hillsborough football stadium thing. Yes, very sad that people died in an incident probably avoidable, yes the behaviour of some of the police and Press was wrong, but it was 31 years ago. Enough!

Corbyn libel case
Jeremy Corbyn is being sued by a BBC journalist and maybe others (I have not kept up with the nonsense). I notice that Corbyn’s legal defence fund has now slowed almost to a halt, but not before it has reached (as of today) £332,803: https://uk.gofundme.com/f/47gyy-jeremy039s-legal-fund. That compares to about £318K a couple of months ago.
The mouse that roared
On my way back from, as the Americans say, running an errand, I decided to call in at a “Mole Country Store”, one of a medium-size chain of such outlets. I had only been there once or twice over the years.
They had instituted a silly “one-way” system, presumably in case someone is a plague-carrier. I went through the labyrinth without finding what I wanted, so approached one of the two cashiers, a woman in late middle age wearing a mask despite being behind a perspex screen.
I pulled my disposable facemask down to say “I am looking for…“, and that was as far as I got before the harridan barked (and that is the accurate term) “PUT YOUR FACEMASK ON PLEASE SIR!” (the “Sir” very much the kind of “Sir” sometimes tacked on by the police to some sarcastic remark, or by instructors of Army officer-cadets, as in “you will call me Sir and I shall call you Sir; the difference is that you will mean it.”…).
After a brief exchange in which it turned out that “Mole Country Store” did not have the product I wanted (I think that the old bitch was lying, in fact, in order to mess me around), I expostulated that “this is nonsense!“, as I stormed out, tearing off the mask.
There were only three customers anyway (it was much busier there a few years ago), so it may be that the place is living on borrowed time. I hope so, if that is how their serfs treat the customers. Anyway, they have just lost one customer.
I think that the sort of situation just described is one of the worst aspects of the Government-imposed nonsense of the past months. That woman is no longer a poorly-paid wage-slave in some rural store. Oh, no. She is now the guardian of publc health, who can bark at people to do this, do that etc. All sorts of nuisances, pains-in-the-whatever, and busybodies, have been emboldened and their existences somehow validated by the “lockdown”, “social distancing” and now facemask nonsense imposed by Boris-idiot and his Friends of Israel regime.

Is that woman’s face and expression that of the British police, or of what amounts to that of a merciless invader, alien and wishing harm to us? I hope not the latter, but am not very optimistic.
That last one’s a killer! “...and how black people have to work harder than white people“! Since when? Maybe on a Boer farm in 1930, thanks to a few blows with a sjambok! Otherwise not.
Some of the replies to the original tweet are so “English” that they should be put in a glass case and exhibited alongside a copy of a Miss Marple book and photographs of England when it was a civilized white country. “You should write to the school“, opines one naive lady; “complain, with other parents“, writes another no doubt well-meaning lady…
When are these people going to realize that we, the white Northern peoples of the world, are in an existential war with the racially and culturally inferior?! The (((ones))) behind it all are sitting in North London gated communities, in Manhattan townhouses, on megayachts etc, manipulating the stupid (“Black Lives Matter” activists, “antifa” dupes etc) to do their bidding.
Members of the teaching “profession” are often prime examples of the rank and file of the brainwashed foot-soldiers of this war against us.
Writing polite letters, complaining to school staff, or to (often packed with enemies of British and European culture) boards of school governors etc will not “do de bizniz”.
Look below! This is what you are up against!
Because freedom of expression is now so repressed in the UK, I am effectively barred from writing what I want to write about what should be done. My readers will just have to read between the lines, as has always been the case in unfree countries.
I like some of what Monbiot has to say about environmental matters, and even some of the cited article is not entirely misguided, but the taking of the cretinous “Extinction Rebellion” vandals as a positive example shows a very poor grasp on reality.
If the present form of representative Parliamentary democracy is very unrepresentative, which it is, than how much less representative is the idea of “citizen’s assemblies” etc?
Extinction Rebellion has tried to get people elected once or twice (as Independents, because “XR” is not registered as a political party). Its “co-founder”, Roger Hallam, presently sitting in prison awaiting trial (unless out on bail) stood for election in the 2019 European Elections (for the London constituency). He achieved a vote of 0.04%, 924 votes out of nearly a quarter of a million votes cast.
History shows that “citizen’s assemblies” are always just brief episodes between one state imperium and another: Paris 1789, St. Petersburg and Moscow 1917, Berlin and Munich 1918 etc.
“Citizen’s assemblies” are either chaotic or have to be regularized, which makes them into rough and ready parliaments. As Stalin realized (maybe Trotsky too, thinking of Kronstadt), what then matters is who controls the secretariat behind the assembly…
Monbiot is right, though, in thinking that the present political and electoral system is broken. The UK needs not only a proportional form of voting, but (as mentioned in Monbiot’s article) something that ties taxation and spending closer to the people as a whole. Perhaps a proportion of government spending, whether 10% or 5% (or whatever) left to popular decision and meshed into the taxation system.
Quite right. The proportion of white Northern Europeans in the world is declining fast. It is already a tiny fraction of what it was a century ago; yet white Northern Europeans are the only hope for positive future evolution of humanity.
I myself do not really know Coventry. I have only been there twice.
I first went to Coventry (to the famous rebuilt modern Cathedral) in 1964, perhaps, at the age of 7 or so. I recall the (literally?) “iconic” metal sculpture of Archangel Michael spearing the Devil (a false memory, I now see, because the Devil, though bound, is not actually speared).
I also recall going into a snack bar (something my family hardly ever did) somewhere near that cathedral, and also visiting a large park which contained quite a few (I think) Indians talking in groups (there were then no Indians, Pakistanis —or blacks, for that matter— in Berkshire or Oxfordshire, at least I had never seen any, with the exception of an NHS consultant ENT doctor from the Caribbean who saw me a few times when aged about 6 or 7 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital).
I made a second visit to Coventry about 15 years ago. I stayed overnight in some Holiday Inn Express (I think). I did not see the better parts of Coventry (if any).
How long before people really start to chafe?
Increasingly, nothing works in the UK, whether at central government level, local government level, or simply in the retail sphere, e.g. large companies such as Boots. The simplest things are either not done properly or not done at all.
I was just listening to the stupid woman Boris-idiot appointed to run the “Coronavirus” track-and-trace service (which is a total waste of time and money anyway, but let’s leave that aside). One Lady Dido Harding, who has apparently made a career of messing up one high-level job after another, but always getting another one by reason of connections.
Then we have Chris “Failing” Grayling, just appointed to a £100,000 a year job, which may not seem hugely overpaid (though it is several times what most people receive) until you realize that the salary will remunerate Grayling for “about 7 hours per week”. A day a week, and £100K a year… Nearly £300 per hour, or over £2,000 for a 7-hour week. On top of his MP salary (and expenses) and whatever else he is dragging down.
What does one expect of a country that has a useless c**t like Boris-idiot at its helm? I notice that even a deadhead like Toby Young has now woken up:
Yesterday, I blogged that Boris-idiot seemed crushed, in fact flattened, at PMQs. I do not entirely attribute that to Angela Rayner’s fairly brutal putdown. As I blogged, it seems to me that, for the first time, “Boris” has now himself woken up to the fact that his heart is not in the job of being a Prime Minister; perhaps also to the fact that he is useless at it.
It is about 10 years since I last flew BA (and in the past several years I have had no reason and no money to travel anyway or at all). To me, BA seems symptomatic of so many British companies. It has become just a globalist label, something for rootless cosmopolitans to invest in or speculate in.
You may say, “so what?“, but this is one example of a pattern: globalism, cosmopolitanism, the ripping-out of the heart of a business and replacement of that heart with money. Again, it may be objected that business is all about money. I should say, rather, that business is about money, but not all about money.
We have seen so many parts of the British socio-economic landscape disappear or get trashed in the past 20-30 years. To take a few examples, Cadbury’s chocolate, various other confectionery brands, Thomas Cook, some airlines, familiar shop chains such as Woolworth’s (yes, American in origin, but really Anglo-American: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woolworths_Group#History).
The model village for employees, Bournville [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bournville], was an inspiration for similar settlements across Britain and quite possibly elsewhere, such as in the Soviet Union, where it was commonplace for large enterprises to operate hospitals, clinics, schools, entertainment facilities etc in towns where most people worked in one factory or plant, and which were far from other centres of population.
In recent decades, that whole ethos has been lost in the UK, not only at (to use its new name) Cadbury, but at many companies. Employee loyalty was not valued, brand loyalty was (mistakenly) relied upon. The British public started to boycott Cadbury chocolate once the company was taken over after 2008 by American Jews, who sacked British workers, and even changed the recipe of Cadbury products (as well as shortchanging the public on weight): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irene_Rosenfeld; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadbury#2017_%22Easter%22_controversy.
“My job in the audit department was to make sure Cadbury was meeting its commitments on promoting its products ethically, manufacturing them sustainably and looking after its own employees. From the factory in Bucharest to the office in Lima, all my colleagues around the world felt immense pride in what our company was doing to build a better world – as well as giving us the chocolate we loved.”
“That all changed in January 2010, when we learned that Cadbury was to be taken over by Kraft.”
The Jewess from America and her satraps did that. Ruined a once-great British company. Why should it surprise? Look at “sir” Philip Green and his activities; and many other examples. Look at, on a yet larger canvas, Boris-idiot’s basically Jewish (Jew-Zionist) “government” of nasty clowns.
The same pattern is seen over and over again, with various factors intertwined but almost always present: finance-capitalism, globalism, lack of honesty, lack of decency, multiculturalism, Jewish financial power.
British Airways is but one large UK-based company facing ruin as a result not so much of “Coronavirus” but because of the over-reaction of the UK government to that virus. People will now only travel (subject to intrusive testing, facemask muzzles, pipsqueak “marshals” and even quarantine requirements), if they really have little choice.
We keep seeing msm obfuscation, talking about how the USA, India etc have “millions of cases”, when per head of population, other countries have far worse death outcomes; Spain, for example, a country with extremely strict facemask and lockdown measures. Is anyone listening? https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/data/mortality
Police alleged to have been “infiltrated” by social-nationalists (in Germany). Makes you think…
When the toytown police state becomes a real police state…
Hitchens’ use of “Brownshirts” is of course mistaken. Liberty only existed incidentally in Weimar Republic Germany. The SA was created to protect NSDAP meetings from Communist/Jew attack. The NSDAP was constantly repressed in pre-1933 Germany, but triumphed in the end because its policies were necessary and its victory divinely ordained.
All the same, does anyone really care what are the views of someone like Peter Jukes? I dare say that the vast majority of British people have never heard of him.

The UK has gone so mad that one has to look twice before being sure that a spoof “government” poster is really a spoof.
Below, a typical 2020 UK “Homo Sovieticus” (at first glance) who wants people to “shut up and do as they are told”…but in fact he was just trying to make a joke. An Irishman somewhat lacking in Irish humour. Trouble is, there are untold thousands who would tweet the same and be deadly serious (in their own little minds):
That question is presumably rhetorical, unless you think that pro-Jew, pro-Israel expenses cheat and cocaine-abuser, Michael Gove, has any idea at all of what he is doing.
Here (below) is the little bastard drunk or drugged in the House of Commons:
Sadly, “someone” has had the better YouTube footage of the same incident removed. The Jew-Zionist lobby, again, no doubt.
So much for “freedom”…
Interesting commentary, below, from the USA:
The French were ahead of the British etc in deciding, quite mistakenly, that you could import blacks and browns, teach them all a load of stuff about citizenship and equality etc, and they would wake up one fine day as (in the French case) Frenchmen! Never happened. Never will happen.
I do not have much time for Angela Rayner, or indeed Labour generally, but this is crushing. Boris-idiot just sits there looking flattened. My sense is that he does not really want to be Prime Minister now that it involves “blood, sweat and tears”, including his own. So long as being Prime Minister meant posing as “World King” and having everyone around him telling him what a fine fellow he was, yes; now, increasingly (?), no.
For the first time, I wonder whether “Boris” will serve out all or even the bulk of his allotted term as PM. He looks defeated.
Hugh Johnson’s Vintage
I used to have this entire series on video. Superb. These extracts are shorter and fewer than the 1980s originals (a number of programmes, each about 25 minutes long), but are still well worth seeing. Erudite and interesting.
Was “the virus” a planned release, posed as an “accident”? We may never know for sure. Some may say that such a speculation is a “conspiracy theory”, but if so, it is one supported —or not dismissed at any rate— by some pretty well-informed people.
Sir Richard Dearlove, one-time SIS chief, seems to believe that the virus came from an accident in a named Chinese lab, and was not an accident of and in the natural world and/or a market.
I personally (obviously not an expert in scientific subjects) find it very strange that the outbreak in Wuhan was contained very easily in the end, and there was quite swiftly an end to “lockdowns”, “social distancing” and facemask wearing etc. Only about 3% of the population of Wuhan was infected (some sources say); the official death rate was a tiny fraction of 1%, being around 5,000 people in a city of 11 million (about 1 death for every 2,000 inhabitants); and most parts of China were completely unaffected.
Meanwhile, in Germany, Austria, Italy, fast-spreading outbreaks. Was there a deliberate planting of material there?
Reverting to the main theme, 31 years ago socialism dissolved all over the world. I have blogged about it before. The fact that the Chinese government still pretends to be “Communist” or socialist carries no weight. “Communist” is just the name on the outside of the box.
Neither does the fact that there are a few pitiful failed “socialist” states here and there prove the survival of socialism as a significant ideology rising beyond the level of a small political cult. North Korea, with its bizarre pseudo-socialist “monarchy” (by any other name); Cuba, which without Soviet subsidy has become what one would expect of a Latino dictatorship ruling over an island populated mainly by blacks and those of mixed race. Ramshackle, its roads potholed, its railways scarcely functioning, its capital full of condemned and collapsed buildings.
As I have blogged previously, in the UK whatever existed of socialism or even social-democracy soon dissipated. The Labour Party deleted Clause 4 from its constitution and socialism was dead in Labour as well as everywhere else.
Corbyn’s rise was resistance against the finance-capitalism then riding triumphant despite the 2008 crash. It was, however, unsuccessful. Now we see Labour just a pale copy of Blairism, run by a former prosecuting lawyer who is, like all his Cabinet, completely tied in with the Jewish/Israel lobby.
Social nationalism, in terms of parties and organizations, has rarely been so weak. A consequence of the globalist finance-capital trend since 1989. The BNP started to gain some traction before 2010, but in the end failed, just like Corbynism.
Now we see widespread discontent, but nowhere (in the UK) amounting to even a real hard protest, let alone any kind of “revolution”. Even the recent dictatorial “control” “laws” [invalid, fake, laws] could not raise much of a protest. Maybe 10,000 in Trafalgar Square, listening to speeches.
When the economy really tanks, when neither Government nor (fake) Opposition can offer the then-suffering British people anything, then social-nationalism might have a chance, but only if it has developed by then (meaning 2022) at least the nucleus of a disciplined party organization.
2022 will bring in an era of change across the world. The world between 2022 and 2055 will be as different from the world 1989-2022 as that now is when compared to 1956-1989.
Or to put it another way, “truth not required on voyage”…
Actually, I rather like the idea. Destroy Labour and people might start to look for a real alternative to the equally-misnamed “Conservative” Party.
If (which I doubt, frankly) that report is accurate, then at last Boris-idiot will have done something worthwhile. I support public service broadcasting, in principle, but the BBC is not that, not any more, if it ever was (certainly not after some admittedly indeterminate point in the past; maybe 1980 or so). I now hate the BBC despite it still having a few good things showing (mainly on BBC Four).
Hitchens is right. All across the world, and perhaps especially in those jurisdictions which for long have considered themselves “societies under law”, with civil rights and reasonable freedoms, there has been a stunning abrogation of liberty, moreover an entirely (from the public health point of view) unnecessary abrogation of rights and liberties. Incidentally, if anyone reading this cannot see the difference between “a society under law” and a mere “society that has laws”, all I can do here is request (for your own sake) that you research that difference.
Also, take a look at Twitter. Most of the pseudo-socialists, “antifa” twits, most of the Jewish element, are applauding the dictatorial measures being employed in Australasia (New Zealand is almost as bad as Australia, though less confrontational).
As I have blogged previously, the ideological unsoundness of the self-described “Left” (I myself avoid the “Left”/”Right” meaninglessness) is shown by their wish to be controlled and ordered about by the State. That is why these people have no political traction. They have no real core belief beyond various “anti” positions.
Note the stated “position” of tweeter “@Oz_UK”: “socialist“…and pro-Corbyn, and his “avatar” is that of a photograph of the girl I call Greta Nut.
People like that do not change the system, let alone lead or take part in revolutions. Their main aim is to see those with whom they think they disagree hurt in some way, by others or by the State apparat. In the old Soviet Union, they were called Homo Sovieticus…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homo_Sovieticus].
I suppose that Edison was “only” an inventor, not a “real” scientist of the Professor Ferguson type…
I regard Nigel Farage as “controlled opposition”, but I repost his tweets here because his are the best record today of the migration-invasion happening. 400+ in one day!
What use is a Royal Navy, a Royal Air Force, a Border Force that cannot stop this invasion of untermenschen by any and all means? Do you say “because the armed services are there to stop Russian invasion“? If so, you are very foolish.
The Russia of today is not the old Soviet Union, and has no ideology that differs much from that of “the West”, beyond a certain nationalistic outlook. The Russians are far less expansionist than the Americans these days. The USA is the brute force behind the New World Order [NWO] expansion in Eurasia.
Russia has neither the means to invade the UK nor any interest in invading the UK but, speaking frankly, I should prefer a Russian invasion to one by these hordes of (mostly) near-savages. At least I should be able to speak the language!
Took a look at the statistics for 2020. So far, tens of thousands of hits from nearly 10,000 individuals. With four full months to go until the end of the year, the number of hits already exceeds the figure for 2019 by about 7%, but the best aspect is that the number of individuals has jumped by 25%. It will be interesting to see the final figures for this year.
The number of “likes” from other WordPress users is also up, but few are ever given (on anyone’s blog) anyway. I had to laugh at the number (as of today) though: 88! True… Is it synchronicity?
Most readers of blogs do not belong to the platform, whether WordPress or other, so the number of “likes” means little. Most blogs get only a few in any given month. Likewise with comments. WordPress blogs are not like social media accounts such as Twitter.
Why does one bother? It is a way of influencing society, even if in a very small way; on the other hand, “one human soul is a big audience“, which I always think was said either by St. Thomas Aquinas or St. Dominic, or maybe even St. Augustine of Hippo, but in fact I have never been able to find the citation.
Who knows who might read my blog and be influenced by it? The next young Alexander? Perhaps a young reader who, after I leave this Earth in my present incarnation, will create the new civilization which I myself, at least so far, have been unable to bring to life and power.
A few “thoughts out of season”
I am 64 years of age in a few days’ time, though I do not —usually!— feel it. Two years until I am 66, in 2022. 2022 can be expressed as a 6 (2+0+2+2), and (by one system of numerology) the number of my name (Ian Robert Millard) is 666, though I should add that I am scarcely a —let alone the—“Beast”!
Like “the stars in their courses“, I “fight on the side of the just” (an ancient Chinese saying).
2022 is the next world-historic year. The last, 33 years before 2022, was 1989, the key year in the collapse of socialism across the world. Socialism did not collapse in one year alone, of course. It had been slowly dying for decades, indeed since the previous year in that 33-year cycle, meaning 1956 (also the year of my own birth).
When I say “socialism” here, I refer to all post-1945 varieties, from the kind of social democratic idea seen in postwar UK, Sweden, New Zealand etc through to the extreme versions seen in the Soviet Union, China, Albania etc. True, China still has and is ruled by the Communist Party, but that party rules over a society completely capitalist. Yes, there are a few unimportant remnants of ruined socialism here and there: Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela (which only became notionally socialist in the 1990s, though there were socialistic elements in Venezuelan society in the 1950s and 1960s). The point is that these countries are exceptions, and poverty-stricken exceptions. The mainstream of the world has moved on from old-style socialism.
After 1989, the Soviet Union ceased to exist as a socialist state, though the Soviet Union continued in name until 1991.
After 1989 and the —superficially— unsuccessful Tiananmen Square protest, “socialism” became a figleaf covering only, just like “aristocracy” has been for a long time in UK society. Deng Xiaoping had said that no-one cared what colour was a cat, so long as it catches mice. That was why socialism had to be superseded, because as an economic model it “does not work”.
In the UK, the social democratic idea was fully espoused after the Second World War, certainly from 1956, by all three “main parties” (the two real main parties —Conservative and Labour— and the joke Liberal Party). That consensus (“democratic socialist” Labour, in existence in essence since the late 19thC, and “One Nation” Conservatism, also deriving originally from the late 19thC and Disraeli) broke down in the 1980s.
In the 1990s, the “Conservatives” travelled to a more finance-capitalist, anti-Welfare State position. “Labour” dropped “Clause 4” (which notionally committed the party to widespread nationalization —socialization— of the economy). Within a few years, after 1997, Labour had become completely “cosmopolitan finance-capitalist” under Tony Blair and the Jew Mandelson, who declared that he was “intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich“.
While the Jew Mandelson held secret meetings with Rothschilds and “Russian” Jew oligarchs in Corfu villas and elsewhere, Attlee and Bevan rotated in their graves, and the remaining “socialist” element in Labour seethed, led by the dissident MP, Jeremy Corbyn.
Despite much talk, the “socialist” Labour element under Corbyn and, before that, Ed Miliband, was unable to struggle successfully against the Zeitgeist. The General Elections of 2015, 2017 and 2019 proved that old-style socialism is dead. That despite public disquiet at the weakening and partial dismantling of the “Welfare State”, mainly under the Conservative Party governments since 2010.
In fact, that weakening of the UK “Welfare State”, though intensified after 2010, had started long before, and was in evidence during the Blair-Brown years 1997-2010. For example, the disgraceful ATOS organization was given its first contracts not by the Conservative Party governments (2010, 2015, 2017 and 2019), but by the Labour governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown (1997, 2001, 2005, 2007): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atos#Atos_Healthcare.
People in the UK tend to think that policy is made by individual governments, when in fact there has always been a “deep state” element underneath, carried on in secret, or in semi-secrecy. The influence of, inter alia, freemasonry, Common Purpose, the Jew-Zionist element, the Bilderberg element etc are all part of that. Look at Welfare State policy since, say, 1997. There have been differences between and within parties, but the main themes continued beneath the surface chatter.
As we move to the next significant year, 2022, we see that neither old-style socialism/social democracy nor finance-capitalism satisfies the needs of the people. A new movement is required, both in the sense of a “party” or political organization, and in the sense of a movement in and of society.”
“For the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].
Time moves on
I found this graphic from 2018, not seen for quite a while. It was produced by the Jew-Zionist (and misnamed) “Hope Not Hate” crowd. It shows those who met (in my case, once, at a clifftop cafe, because someone thought reliable had asked me) a young Swede whose real name is said to be Patrik Hermansson, and who posed in 2017 as a Swedish student called Erik Hellberg. Personally, I think that “The Rat” suits him better, but that’s just me…
It will be noted that I was placed, as if a denizen of a contemporary “Inferno“, in the circle of the “holocaust” “deniers” [bottom right of the graphic].
I tend to be rather anti-social both in the ordinary meaning and politically. I do not mix much, in fact scarcely at all. For all that, I can see that political life has moved on in the intervening <2 years.
Some people have become more prominent (Alison Chabloz for one), others have retreated from the limelight: Jez Turner, Stead Steadman, Colin Robertson (“Millennial Woes”) etc. The London Forum is inactive. The “alt-Right” in the USA (as far as I can tell —I do not keep up with all that in detail) has developed a sharper edge, it seems.
The graphic does not of course purport to be a comprehensive map of the “nationalist” side of UK/US politics. As for the work of “The Rat”, he was wasting his time. His paymasters at “Hope Not Hate” eventually produced a film, but it sank like a stone. I think (not sure) that it did get a screening on Channel 4 or Channel 5 around midnight one evening, and the same in Belgium and Sweden. I myself cannot recall seeing it.
The most interesting aspect of that graphic is what is not there: “lone wolves” in the UK and elsewhere, German rural-sanctuary nationalists and national socialists, those setting up a mini-ethnostate in the Pacific North West of the USA etc.
In fact, the behaviour of the pseudo-socialists and “antifa” idiots really highlights the sheer bankruptcy of their socio-political position or stance. They beg to be masked, muzzled, controlled, restricted by the State. They have nothing at all to offer in terms of policy or a way forward for society.
You see the same phenomena in the UK, the “anti-racist” and “antifa” types whose life revolves around trolling people on Twitter, saying negative things about those they deem “fascist” or “neo-Nazi” etc. They know nothing, have no real ideology, and put forward no programme of their own. Politically irrelevant.
…and look [below] at these idiots, sitting talking while wearing facemask muzzles! Complete idiots. This really is a ******* farce, but most people are too polite or too compliant or too brainwashed to say anything!
Listened to BBC Radio 4 Profile about Dido Harding: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dido_Harding. Sounds like she is the sort of person who gets into highly paid positions (eg at Talk Talk, where she was paid millions for failure) because of whom she knows rather than what she knows (or does). A modified and female example of the Peter Principle [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_principle], except that she has been appointed to her present position having serially failed in others. Pathetic country, pathetic government.
The fat man in his muzzle is [update: tweet gone] typical of the aggressive and/or mentally-disturbed facemask zealots who have been emboldened by the ludicrous fake “law” being misused by Boris-idiot, little Matt Hancock, Cressida Dick etc.
Below, “antifa” gassed! I’m lovin’ it (even though I think that Trump is completely unfit for public office)!
Hitchens is right as far as he goes, but fails, once again, to point out that Boris-idiot’s most significant characteristics come not from his few years at Eton (or Oxford) but from the fact that he is part-Jew, part-Turk/Levantine, born in New York City, brought up as child in Washington DC, New York and in Brussels. He is at least half-foreign, in short. Of course “Boris” is not really English in attitude, because he is not really English!
It's not 'paying for the virus'. It's paying for the lockdown policies that many of us never wanted, agreed to, or believed were necessary.
Most NHS doctors are saying nothing because, quite simply, just as Aneurin Bevan said that he had overcome the opposition of the BMA and doctors to the establishment of the NHS by “stuffing their mouths with gold” (relatively high salaries and the chance to do private work on the side etc), Boris-idiot and little Matt Hancock have stuffed the mouth of today’s NHS doctors with more gold, via immediate 4.5% pay rises for less work done…
Hitchens may or may not be aware of it, but Americans have always treated their prisoners, especially political prisoners and/or prisoners of war, very badly. Those suspected of being involved in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln were kept muzzled and with hoods over their heads for months in some cases.
Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, who was briefly touted as a future UK Prime Minister when he started throwing money around to ameliorate the effects of his own government’s policies, established the “eat out to help out” programme. 50% off, up to £10 a head, I believe. Well, I just heard anecdotal evidence:
A lady I know went to a seaside cafe/restaurant one morning recently. Her purchase was modest, a single cup of coffee. When she went to pay (£2.20), she was told that she only had to pay £1.10 because of that scheme. A woman also waiting to pay then chimed in to the effect that her family now dined out three times a week because it made eating out almost as cheap as eating in.
Well, that lady whose family use restaurants three times a week and get a discount for it may enjoy the scheme, but the whole thing is being paid for by the public as a whole; by the poor too, who may not pay much in income tax but who certainly pay VAT and, if employed, National Insurance.
Why should the people as a whole pay to subsidize the cafe visits and restaurant excursions of the rich, the affluent and the comfortably-off? Like so many government policies now, there is just no logic and no justice behind it.
A very striking piece of architecture, quite exciting, and I do not hate it as much as tweeter “Western Traditionalist”, but I hear what he (or she) says. It is a symptom of cultural decadence, for sure.
As for the “architecture” below, that really is just disgusting, and should be demolished or destroyed.
Presumably a representation of some organ of the human body (?), or maybe some sea-creature, plonked down in the midst of what seems to be a town in Southern Germany:
Post-socialist intimidation and emergent chaos in the USA
Reminiscent of the Red Guards during the so-called “Cultural Revolution” in 1960s China. Dissidents or random victims being targeted, bullied, assaulted, even killed.
The only silver lining is that those cruel and fanatical bullies probably starved later! “Enjoy your meal!“
(slightly off-topic, I have blogged before at the oddness of the apparent inconsistency: we are told that, on the national or ethnic basis, the Chinese have the highest IQ in the world, even higher than white Northern Europeans, and yet I myself have to say that almost all the Chinese I have encountered in my life have been dimwits. Anecdotal evidence, and so proving nothing very much? I wonder).
Australians are like the British from which most of them still have descent: most of them are more interested in whether their “national” teams (even if non-white) win football, rugby, cricket (etc) matches or athletic medals on the other side of the world than what is happening in their own societies. Politically blind, so easily enslaved.
Patrick O’Flynn [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_O%27Flynn] was one of the more intelligent of the “Prominenten” in UKIP. In the end, though, just a scribbler making his way. Politically irrelevant. In fact, politically rather silly.
“People who can’t even aspire to mediocrity“? Is this a case of projection?
I seem to recall that Dunt tweeted a few times about me when I had a Twitter account. He seems to be very interested in Jewish matters, “antisemitism” etc… I recall that he was supportive of the Extinction Rebellion nonsense in London (at least, that is how his tweets appeared to me). My view: he is an outright enemy of the British people, as can be seen plainly in the tweet above.
I suppose that one might just ignore the views and even the existence of someone of that type, but this person is Editor of Politics.co.uk (supposedly “impartial” political website), is sometimes seen on TV, and has at least some peripheral influence, if only because of that. A symptom of the socio-political degeneracy afflicting the UK (though not the UK alone).
An “antifa” cheerleader now based in Stuttgart, who claims, risibly, to “work three jobs” but in fact travels around Germany enjoying himself and tweeting when not sitting in cafes. Raised nearly £12,000 via GoFundMe with his collaborator “@antifashwitch” of Derbyshire, ostensibly in order to sue Tommy Robinson.
A poorly-drafted “letter before action” was sent to “Stephen Yaxley-Lennon” (Robinson’s real or original name) in November 2019 by a one-man Pakistani law firm in the North of England, but Robinson never was sued (I doubted from the first that he would be: see my blog posts), and it is not known what happened to the monies donated by nearly 700 mugs: https://www.gofundme.com/f/sue-tommy-robinson

Why indeed? It’s a puzzle…
That’s Lisa Nandy, part-Indian Westminster “Labour” MP and (needless to add?) a member of Labour Friends of Israel…
Don’t imagine that Europe is different, that the UK is different. If there were, scaling it up, tens of millions of Jews in or near the UK, we, the British people, would be the ones directly suffering in an open-air concentration camp and being rocketed for the slightest resistance.
Not sure about that “shadows of their former selves“: admittedly, I have never seen Dead Ringers or The Now Show, and have only seen Have I Got News For You a couple of times, but that was years, even decades ago, and I thought it pathetic and contrived then. Is it even less interesting now? Perhaps it is. The least funny or witty? Paul Merton. Yet they all get paid millions. Just a completely rotten system overall.
Coronavirus The latest “virus” nonsense: a group of about 30 teenagers went to a Greek island from Plymouth. On returning, they were tested and nearly half had been infected. A few had sore throats, the others no symptoms at all. None need or needed hospital treatment. This “outbreak” was reported as major news by the BBC! “Soviet radio”…In fact I think that Radio Moscow in its most propagandistic phase might have been no worse than the BBC now is.
The caption left out the last few words, “and never will contribute anything to this country.” They and their descendants will be, at best, a millstone round the necks of the British people; at worst (quite likely) also enemies of the British people.
Not sure where Griffin gets “over-educated” from! The few police with whom I have had any contact in the last decade have been laughably under-educated in any real sense, though it may be that Griffin refers to the paper “degrees” that everyone and his dog now has. After all, to take but one example, the half-caste “Conservative” Party MP, James Cleverly (now a Minister of State, no less!) has a “degree” in “Hospitality Management” from some degree mill or other.
That goes at least some way to the situation characterized in Chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation.
