I took (and passed, for what little it matters now) the New York Bar Exam when the city was under heavy snow; over 30 years ago now.
On this day a year ago
So Vallance has morphed from being a “Covid” scaremaster and “vaccine” cheerleader to being a “climate change”/”net zero” propagandist. That fits, as one would expect. I wonder what he thinks about “Black Lives Matter”, Ukraine etc.
…or as Wellington put it, saying that someone born in a stable must be a horse.
At least they have not yet learned from the Jews the conceit that they are somehow essential to European culture and civilization.
Yes, wake up, English “conservative nationalists”! The Indians are not your allies, any more than are the Pakistanis; incidentally, neither are the Jews and/or Israel. Don’t be fooled.
So speaketh the “Levelling Up Secretary” and, prior to that (incredibly), Chief Secretary to the Treasury.
When you look at the pack of cretins now running this unbelievable bad joke of a government, you realize anew how truly unfit for purpose our political system has become.
Sparks a few memories.
The UN Centre in Vienna (actually on the edge of the city) is an odd place; at least that was my impression when I saw it in the mid-1980s. A concrete fortress or “island” (not literally, though actually on a large island in the Danube), set in quite a green area between the old Vienna and a newer section.
I used to swim, almost every day during my visit, at the not-far-away Alte Donau Strandbad, a closed-off section of the Danube that is either an “oxbow lake” or an artificial version of one. Superb place. Clean river water, a green park, properly-run facilities for changing etc and, best of all, few people. I was there on weekdays, when even in high summer the bulk of the hardworking population were at their jobs.
You cannot just wander into that UN Centre. Even in those days you had to have a pass issued by the security kiosk there. I did not have to get a tourist pass because someone I knew who worked there got me a different kind of visitor pass. The difference was that tourists get a guided tour, whereas I was fairly free to wander around.
A large collection of buildings.
I remember trying to get a sense of what is quite a confusing set-up. I remember seeing a noticeboard with ads for various kinds of local staff. The rates of pay, as far as I could see, were far better than the same people would get in Vienna itself, and were of course not taxable (UN employees do not pay national income tax but only a kind of UN tax, which is far lower).
Another thing that struck me was the Commissary, which no doubt had its origins in the immediately postwar 1940s days when almost everything was unobtainable, but what is odd about that is that the UN Centre in Vienna was established only in 1980, a mere few years before I visited! So a mystery. Maybe there was an earlier, smaller mission.
That Commissary, about the size of a medium-level convenience store, sold duty-free food and drink (including booze) to anyone who was a UN employee or, I think, accredited diplomat. A strange “boondoggle”, in the American phrase. I noticed (I think on a Friday), a couple of (from their stature and looks) East African women, buying Scotch.
Not sure I would call them “happy days”, but not very unhappy, anyway.
The Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation is Sergei Lavrov.
Now let us examine his present opposite number in the UK, James Cleverly, Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs.
Cleverly, a “half-caste” (in the old term), with a British father and a mother from Sierra Leone, seems to have wanted an Army career.
According to Wikipedia, Cleverly “trained in the Army“, whatever that may mean (no detail of whether he was training to be an officer or as an enlisted soldier, presumably the latter, nor of where he trained, nor in what regiment or corps), but suffered a leg injury in 1989 and had to drop out. He would have been 19 or 20 at that time.
Cleverly was involved, not terribly successfully (one can surmise) in business and executive activities during the years up to about 2008, but by then was involved in two side-activities which proved more fruitful for him— politics, and the then Territorial Army (now, Reserves).
Cleverly’s leg injury had obviously been resolved by the time he was commissioned in the TA as 2nd lieutenant in 1991. He stuck at that for the following 14 years, reaching the rank of Lt. Col by 2015.
In politics, Cleverly was a London Assembly member for 8 years from 2007. Cleverly then benefited from the scandal around the ineffectual Jew sex pest and pervert Brooks Newmark, who had to stand down as MP for Braintree (Essex). Cleverly replaced Newmark.
Cleverly’s time as MP has not been distinguished, but the upheavals within the Conservative Party led to him being appointed as a Minister of State in 2020 and now, under Liz Truss, as Secretary of State. His appointment dates from 6 September 2022, about two weeks ago.
Well, there it is. Sergei Lavrov’s background, languages, and 18 years of experience (and many successes) in post, as against James Cleverly’s background, lack of success (other than in narrow career terms), two years of arguably relevant experience, and time in post as Secretary of State five minutes (putting it flippantly).
It will be recalled that when (also absurdly) Liz Truss was Foreign Secretary, Lavrov easily made a fool of her, inducing her to say that quite well-known cities in Russia should be given “back” to Ukraine (the stupid woman had no idea that they never had been part of Ukraine; one was not far from Moscow).
Liz Truss was an embarrassment as Foreign Secretary; she is just ludicrous as Prime Minister. Now someone even less educated is Foreign Secretary. This country is screwed.
Sergei Lavrov will win no plaudits for his kindly good nature, but on whom would you bet your money?
Late afternoon music
While it may seem cruel to mock someone who, quite obviously, is not always compos mentis, that person, Biden, heads the most powerful country on Earth, with enough nuclear weaponry to send us all permanently into orbit. It is all very well to say that he is not really in charge, but that simply raises the question, “who is?” or “what cabal is?“, and what is the real agenda?
Very true. People have been easily brainwashed to regard Putin and Russia as some kind of danger to the UK. If the idiots just thought for a moment, they might wonder how Russia is a threat to the UK when even the invasion and occupation of a small part of Ukraine (which, after all, was effectively part of the same country as Russia until 1991) is not going well for Russia.
As an example of the kind of stupid person who actually knows nothing yet feels the need to comment publicly, look at the tweeted reply from one Louise Down, of Kent:
Why, asks the idiot, are some of the words of the leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world being reported on?
What can one say? Has that kind of stupidity become more widespread since the population was conditioned and brainwashed during the “Covid” “panicdemic”?
I hope that some of the people who matter here, in the governments and legislatures of the West, are listening. Unfortunately, many are either NWO/ZOG drones or are anyway caught up in the delusion that the Russia-Ukraine conflict is also a Russia-UK [etc] conflict. It need not be, and is only so now because the System, including almost all of the msm, are making it so.
Ukraine has only been an independent state (failed state) for 31 years, years which have seen its people become the poorest in Europe, years of corruption and neglect.
Now the British public are told that “we” must support and even fight for that ramshackle failed state, for its mainly Jewish regime, and that said regime is one of democracy and freedom.
In fact, the Jew Zelensky and his regime have closed down all opposition parties, arrested or shot those opposed to war with Russia, and closed down all trade unions.

…thus surely proving conclusively that Liz Truss has no idea at all about economic matters, having already been proven to have no idea about foreign affairs.
I thought that the governments of Theresa May and “Boris”-idiot were bad jokes, but this present “shitshow” (in the immortal words of Johnny Mercer MP) takes the biscuit.
Thinking the unthinkable, what would happen if Russian forces were to use tactical nuclear weapons to target Kiev-regime concentrations on or near the present front line? It might be that Russian forces would also be affected. What if (thinking the even more “unthinkable”) Putin were to destroy the city of Kiev? That might collapse the whole Kiev-regime “state” of Ukraine overnight.
I doubt that Putin would do it, if only because Kiev was not only the first “Ukrainian” city, but the first Russian city (after Novgorod), the strategic centre of Kievan Rus: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27.
Of course, large-scale destruction of cities is not new. We only have to think of the ancient cities which no longer exist: Troy, Carthage (destroyed two or, arguably, three times, and now replaced by modern Tunis) and many others. In the 20th century, the Americans and British inflicted huge damage on a number of cities during, mainly but not exclusively, the Second World War. The Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki remain the only ones destroyed or nearly-destroyed by atomic weapons.
Looking at the war-drums now beating in the Western msm, it all sounds very much like an organized campaign to foment war on a huge, trans-continental scale.
Had there been no Western (NATO, NWO) support for the Zelensky regime, meaning billions of dollars or pounds of actual money, as well as arms and ammunition, the war would now be over bar the shouting. Now, Ukraine faces a protracted and even more terrible war, and countries such as the UK face the possibility (which grows more likely daily) of nuclear annihilation.
This madness should stop, but will not, because powerful and influential forces want Russia to be, ideally, subjugated or, if that cannot or does not happen, wiped out.
Not that no blame attaches to Russia. As I blogged from the start, the performance of the Russian Army has been appalling. The Russian General Staff have shown themselves to be a pack of idiots, and the GRU has shown itself unfit for purpose. We know what Stalin would have done in such a circumstance.
Where are the once-dreaded Russian Spetsnaz forces?
The invasion of Ukraine could and should have been done very swiftly, relentlessly, and with minimal hurt, bloodshed and damage.
As Imperial Russia was once known, and then the Soviet Union (in the 1930s), “a colossus on legs of straw“, and many of its top military people, men of straw.
This situation, meaning the whole war, could change quickly. We could yet see Russian forces overwhelm the whole of Ukraine east of the Dnieper.
The Zelensky regime and its Ukrainian faux-state is just a shell, really. No economy to speak of, no legitimacy, its armed forces only surviving by reason of huge amounts of NATO and other donated weaponry.
The morale of the Kiev-regime forces does seem to be higher than that of the Russian forces in theatre, no doubt because the former see themselves as fighting for their native land, but morale is only determinative if the soldiers remain alive. If those statistics about Ukrainian losses are broadly accurate, they are staggering.
Of course, Zelensky, as a Jew, is neither Ukrainian nor Russian.
Macron will have to go home to mama, or should that be to Mme. Macron?
Did I read that Toby Young and his “Free Speech Union” spoke up when prominent Patriotic Alternative members Laura Towler, her husband Sam Melia, and Mark Collett had their personal bank accounts closed, not by court order but because the bank staff disapproved of their views (or were told to “disapprove”)?
No. Because Toby Young and the Free Speech Union never did speak up.
Neither did Young and his “Free Speech Union” say a word in defence of Alison Chabloz (imprisoned for singing songs and posting songs quite truthfully lampooning Jews and Jewish behaviour), Jez Turner (imprisoned for urging removal of Jews from the UK in a speech), nor indeed in defence of my rights.
Still, half a glass is better than none, I suppose. At least Toby Young says the right sort of words on freedom of expression.
Hitchens, though, blames the instrument of repression (the modern technology) rather than the present socio-political “System” itself, and/or the Jew-Zionist lobby (which is behind most of the attacks on free speech in the UK).
In fact, many actual MPs have fabricated large parts of their own history. One of the most egregious cases, Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, was proven to have simply invented parts of his CV, and to have embellished most of the rest, yet he is still interviewed respectfully by msm talking heads; and that is before one even considers his nasty and backward policies as DWP Secretary of State 2010-2015.
I am just wondering why anyone would think that claiming to have worked for Jim Murphy would boost his career. Murphy was a student for 11 years (yet still left without having been awarded a degree), and as MP was an eager expenses cheat:
“A 2010 commission chaired by Thomas Legg demanded Murphy repay £577.46 in expenses which he had overclaimed. He did not appeal, and repaid the money in full. Expenses documents made available showed he also claimed over £1 million between 2001 and 2012. In 2007/8 he claimed £3,900 for food, £2,284 for petty cash and £4,884 for a new bathroom. He claimed £249 for a TV set and a further £99 for a TV stand; £1762.50 of taxpayers money paid for Murphy’s website whilst further claims included Labour party adverts in the local press. He claimed almost £2000 of public cash to pay private accountants to handle his tax returns.
In 2012, Murphy was among a group of 27 MPs named as benefiting from up to £20,000 per year expenses to rent accommodation in London, at the same time as letting out property they owned in the city. Although the practice did not break rules, it has been characterised as a “loophole” that allows politicians to profit from Commons allowances. He also designated his constituency home in Glasgow as his second home for which he claimed £780 a month in mortgage interest payments in 2007/2008.”
Blair certainly had some odd people in his government. Apart from Murphy (a fervent pro-Zionist, but also a fanatical teetotaller, vegetarian —that’s OK by me— and Roman Catholic —ambivalent as to that—), there was also that Welsh lesbian (another expenses cheat, another pro-Zionist too) who admitted that she was too thick to do her job, and that extreme Roman Catholic (Opus Dei) woman, who wore a spiked belt under her clothing, like a nun in a Ken Russell film. And that’s just three of them.
Incidentally, I believe that the thick Welsh lesbian expenses cheat (and Jews’ puppet) was in Keir Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet until last year, while the Opus Dei woman, Ruth Kelly, now works for the Vatican, having also worked for HSBC for 5 years, 2010-2015. She left the Labour party in 2018 because she disliked Corbyn, and joined the “conservative” pressure group Policy Exchange.
“A trans activist who called a father a ‘fascist’ as he was holding his baby has apologised but claimed the abuse was an attempt to ‘protect’ her trans friends – amid calls for her to be sacked from her job as a Labour MP’s aide.
Carly-May Kavanagh, a policy caseworker in the House of Commons for Brighton MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle, is shown in footage with another woman shouting at the unidentified man with the baby in his arms at a rally in Brighton.
…The friend tells the man: ‘Oh you’re raising a little fascist’.
Miss Kavanagh then joins in and tells the unidentified man: ‘F****** fascist… you think that’s a good idea, do you, to raise a child who believes this filth […] you are disgusting.’ At one point she comes within inches of the baby, which remains calm.”
It looks as if that pair deliberately targeted the man because he was carrying a baby, and so would be less likely to hit them (which they well deserved).
I wish that there existed an English “SA”, members of which would [further comment redacted in our “free” country…].
More seriously, eventually we are going to have to deal with all this nonsense and much more besides. It will not be pleasant, it will not be pretty, and it will be hard on the quiet heroes who will be tasked with doing it, but it will have to be done.
“The protesters disrupted speeches by the Standing For Women founder Kellie-Jay Keen and other speakers.
Keen has frequently attracted the ire of pro-trans activists over her views on gender rights.
The women’s rights campaigner said today: ‘Shouting fascist in front of a baby is a particularly visible sign of how this movement is full of absolute lunacy. As far as I’m concerned transgender ideology is a quasi-religious cult and it’s very dangerous.
‘It seeks to use fear and intimidation to silence dissent. I’ve been interviewed by the police twice and arrested once.“
“Fear“…”intimidation“…[and false complaints to] “police“. Pretty similar to the tactics of the Jew-Zionists, as I know from my own experience.
What most people forget, though, is how the present system, “the System”, is deliberately encouraging not only the “trans” nonsense, but other nonsense, such as “Black Lives Matter”, “Covid” hysteria, the white British “terrorism” “threat” hysteria (the “threat” is, in fact, non-existent), anti-Russia hysteria etc. Look at the behaviour of the police in places such as Brighton, as well as in the major cities, painting their cars in weird colours, allowing Notting Hill rioters…I mean “revellers“…to simulate sex with the women police officers, etc.

Incidentally, the lady tweeter’s comment means “real guys” or “real good fellows” (ha…not “Goodfellas“, I hope, thinking of the American film).
Of course, for “NATO” (NWO/ZOG) to have a nuclear war with Russia would be totally mad —for all sides and none— but, looking at 1914 and 1939, that does not mean that it will not happen.
Russia should make it clear to both decision-makers and the public in the West (if it can) that any nuclear war would mean Russia targeting not only military and naval bases etc, but also large cities.
The American public are all too used to cheering on their bombers and missiles, as they strike cities far from the USA, cities the inhabitants of which have no means of defence or retaliation, but I think that that same American public will not be quite so brave if they think that they themselves are soon going to be fighting for survival in a nuclear wasteland.
As for the UK, our country is too small for any doubt to exist: a nuclear war with Russia means that most of the country will be destroyed, meaning almost everything razed to the ground, and the areas made uninhabitable, whether air bases, ports, or cities are the target.
Sadly, the fate of my country is not in my hands but in those of near-cretins such as Liz Truss, Ben Wallace, and James Cleverly.
This sort of nonsense is now so common that I almost fail to be enraged at it. Symptomatic of an academia that should be eliminated, and then replaced by a better establishment.
Looks like the lesser finance-capitalist and hanger-on “executive” rats are leaving what they imagine to be Russia’s sinking ship…
I wonder what the general’s thoughts will be when Russian nuclear missiles rain down on every major city in the USA, including one or two in Florida, where he lives? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Hodges.
Saw a few minutes of the TV news this evening. Highlights of Putin’s statement of this morning. My impression, regardless of anything else, is that, as he said, he is certainly not bluffing.
The problem in the UK, as in other Anglophone countries, is that most of the population are perfectly willing to see the country go to ratshit so long as the “national” team in this or that televized sport wins some contest on the other side of the world (and they do not care that their “national team” is largely composed of blacks and browns).
This film, below, was a really excellent exploration of M.R. James. I have posted it before; it deserves to be more known.

My view is that much of it is a grasping at straws.
All this nonsense and fakery of various kinds is being encouraged, and to a large extent co-ordinated, by the powers of Evil in the world. We need to prepare for a wideranging and worldwide purge of all such elements.

“The stars in their courses fight on the side of the just” [ancient Chinese proverb]
Amen to that. I dislike that little blot. He just rubs me up the wrong way, as do some other TV people, such as —certainly not a complete list— the one-time shoplifting TV presenter Richard Madeley (yes, he was acquitted; he was lucky), that smug bastard John Humphries (though I think that he has now retired) with his pathetic Mandela-worship…and a number of others.
Exactly the point I made over many years about working tax credits etc.
Earlier this evening, I heard some pompous bore, I think a British MP (I only had audio, no picture) on TV news, yapping about how there would be a “Ukrainian victory“, and how Britain must mobilize for war.
I am not “allowed” (in our “free” country) to say…
Import the backward hordes, and you also import their politics and their ancient hatreds.
The knaves and/or traitors at a high level in Britain have, for over 70 years, permitted and even encouraged the importation into this country of backward hordes of various types. Those hordes have, since allowed in, been breeding prolifically. It already looks like an existential crisis not only for the British people but for Britain as a nation.
Meanwhile, the State regards all attempts by young Englishmen to gather together in defence of race, nation, and culture as a form of “terror threat”, to be stamped on by the police and security services.
Another “strange” (perhaps not so strange) anomaly is that quite a number of young Jews go every year from the UK, France etc to Israel to be trained in the use of automatic and semi-automatic weapons, as well as in Israeli techniques of street-fighting. The Jewish influence over the UK political milieu, as well as the police, means that this is regarded as not a problem for the UK…
I would in any case encourage all parents in the UK to homeschool their children. Many think that it is either illegal or very difficult. Not so. See https://www.gov.uk/home-education.
The cost, though huge, is not the main problem with this.
As to numbers, you only have to look. In 2018, “only” 299 actually crossed the Channel in small boats. Last year, 2021, that had grown to over 25,000, and this year is estimated to reach 65,000.
One or two well-publicized incidents of migrant-invaders being shot and killed in the Channel by the Royal Navy, and few would even try.
That, of course, cannot happen, not because of international conventions and/or similar bs, but because, as previously noted, the political system in the UK is wholly adherent to the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, to basically bastardize the peoples of Europe.
What Hitchens does not say is that almost all of the crowds were white English or at least British; very few blacks and browns. Pretty obvious why— this country, and its history and traditions, mean little or nothing to 99% of them. In a word, they are alien.
Speaking of journalistic effluvia, I saw a piece of fake Union Jack-waving nonsense from Andrew Neil last week, saying what a wonderful and united country Britain is, and how we should all be grateful and —implied, at least— not try to change it.
Andrew Neil used to be the best political interviewer around, and also a perceptive commentator, though he sometimes made the odd and silly rant on his late-night TV show, usually attacking “nazis” etc. Still, he was almost always worth watching or, to a lesser extent, and in the msm, reading. He has really begun to disappoint.
Incidentally, it is both amusing and pathetic to see the self-describing “Left” (I myself never use left/right labelling) angry (not angry really, of course, but just virtue-signalling) about the cost of the funeral etc of the late Queen.
The same idiots do not care that (already) several BILLION pounds annually is being wasted on the hotels, council housing, food, gifts, pocket-money and other things (eg NHS care) for cross-Channel migrant invaders, almost all of which invaders are entirely useless, and quite a number actively hostile and/or criminal.
Interview with the Iranian President
So here we are, 77 years after the end of the Second World War, after the bombing of Germany by the Allied forces (death toll 600,000-800,000), after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, after Vietnam, after the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan (hundreds of thousands killed), and after all sorts of other American transgressions, but when CBS 60 Minutes has a chance to interview Presiodent Raisi of Iran, what is the hot question? “Did the “holocaust” happen?“
The Iranian should have replied that no-one really claims that large numbers of Jews found within Reich territory were not detained, but most of those worked in industrial camps, and the majority that survived were released at the end of hostilities (and then went to various places, including Palestine, where they chucked many Palestinians out of their homes and took them over; stole their homes, if you like).
In fact, there is no credible evidence for much of the “holocaust” farrago, in particular the “biggest lie”, that about supposed “gas chambers”.
Any simple internet search will also turn up literally thousands of cases of “holocaust” fakery, hoaxes, fraud etc, from quite obscure examples to famous ones such as the supposed Anne Frank diary.
Whatever the truth of the Ukraine atrocity reports, it is ironic that much of the venom against Russia comes from people in the USA, some influential. You would hardly know that, ever since the Second World War, the USA has been committing atrocities of all sorts (from officially-approved ill-treatment and torture right through to wiping out whole populations with atomic bombs), and against not only enemies in the field but also civilian populations. Where? Where not (almost): Germany, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon (etc).
“The world’s leading medical journal has conceded that the Covid pandemic could have been sparked by a laboratory leak and admits that the virus may have been engineered by scientists.
...this is a remarkable turnaround for the 199-year-old Lancet, which printed an infamous article condemning suggestions of a lab leak as ‘conspiracy theories’.
However, the journal – which says the world should take ‘seriously’ both main hypotheses – has also suggested the virus could be linked to laboratories in the US, provoking fears it is still promoting China’s cause rather than good science.“
Will someone, anyone (that one Canadian) step forward?
I myself have never had the “Covid” “vaccine(s)”, let alone the supposed “boosters”. I know a few people who have had them. Unpleasant but probably temporary side-effects in a few cases, but in others far more serious problems, including two people, both younger than me (I am 66) and without any history of heart problems, who have both had to have heart surgery recently; one triple by-pass, one quadruple by-pass.
Same as Canada and Trudeau, mutatis mutandis. Is there not one New Zealander…(?)
We can see this in, inter alia, the whole “Covid” situation. Not least, the increasing realization that many of the leaders and leading propagandists of the various countries, and particularly the most important countries of the West, are part of a pretty tight cabal or series of cabals.
Look at, say Jacinda Ardern. Not just Prime Minister of New Zealand, but before that operating at a high level, more or less behind the scenes, in the Labour Party in the UK. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacinda_Ardern.
There are probably other, far less public, groups, but all such groups form one basic over-group.
I have often blogged about the 33-year cycle: 2022, 1989, 1956, 1923 etc. World-historic years betokening huge socio-political change in the world.

“Trans” stuff, the more general LGBTQXYZ stuff, “Black Lives Matter” and general “anti-racist” (99% anti-white) propaganda, most of the “climate change” propaganda, anti-British Empire propaganda, the blacks inserted into every “British” (Swedish, Danish, German etc) TV show, news broadcast, TV drama, TV soap, and TV ad, as well as the long-running “holocaust” fakery, hoaxes and propaganda, the “Covid” “panicdemic”, and now all the “I stand with Ukraine” hullabaloo.

“Jack Monroe”, the “Bootstrap Cook”
As I have blogged previously, I myself hold no animus against “Jack Monroe” (originally Melissa Hadjicostas— half Greek-Cypriot), aka “the Bootstrap Cook”. It may be that her activity is of use to some people.
I myself am unlikely to use much of her work, partly because some of the recipes she puts out (and that I have read…admittedly a fairly small number) result in dishes that (to me, or in my opinion, looking at photos) look like a dog’s dinner, and partly because the recipes seem, often, to be heavy on carbohydrate, which I think is not good in a country plagued by type-2 diabetes (though I take her point, made on TV, about it being better for people to eat something not completely healthy than to eat nothing, and that it is wrong that so many in our country have to make that choice).
[actually, in the interest of fairness, I just looked at some of her other recipes, and many arein fact not“a dog’s dinner” to look at, though I have to say that a number do still give me that impression; and yet others are scarcely “recipes” at all, such as some very basic pasta suggestions].
I have not wanted to involve myself in the recent furore about whether or not “Bootstrap Cook” has been a little —indeed, more than a little— “economical with the truth” about a number of matters from her own history, and about whether she has been, or is, financially “transparent”.
I have my own opinion, based purely on what I have read on Twitter and elsewhere, and suffice to say that I shall certainly not be donating to, or buying from, the “Bootstrap Cook”. In any case, she probably has a good deal more money than me, again based on what I have read. Still, if people want to give her money, and cannot find a deserving person or cause instead, well, that is their concern, assuming that they are compos mentis.
Loonies like that green-hair seem to be coming out (so to speak) of the woodwork all over the place now. Often nasty, often (in my view) mentally disturbed. This is destructive of society. I suppose that, in the days of the Reich, such odd and unpleasant individuals would probably have ended up in a mental hospital (or, perhaps, a labour camp).
The one good thing about Boris-idiot’s time as Prime Minister was that at least some attention was given to animal welfare, wildlife protection, and the environment. Liz Truss has no feeling for that, so even those small steps are not to continue.

As for that ghastly African “professor” based in the USA (an untenured associate professor at Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh), I blogged about her tasteless and absurd views last week.
“The poor are always with us“, according to Jesus Christ but, at the same time, policy can either reduce their numbers to a minimum, or expand them to a tenth, a quarter, or even half or more of the population. Policy is key. Governmental action or inaction is key.
I was wondering why some “dark-skinned man” would do that. No-one has as yet been charged (at time of writing), so I feel free to speculate.
There is a “conspiracy theory” around that, for some reason unexplained, the coffin does not contain the body of the late Queen.
Was the man arrested trying to “prove”, by finding the coffin empty, or without a body, that the late Queen has been buried already, as required, in particular, in Judaism? I do not know, of course, though my understanding is that the 24-hour rubric for Jewish burial is in fact not rigid, and can be extended for days, or even longer. On the face of it, that theory seems unlikely to be correct.
In any case, the arrested person could not (I presume) have actually opened the coffin. The lid (again, my presumption) must have been screwed down and/or sealed.
Schizophrenia is far more prevalent in the blacks and browns as compared to white Europeans. Maybe that is the explanation for what has happened.
Sometimes, mentally-disordered persons (of any/all races) carry out such attacks. A crazed ex-monk hijacked a plane in France about 40 years ago. His demand was that the Pope release the details of the “Third Secret of Fatima” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Secrets_of_F%C3%A1tima#Third_secret]. I believe that the hijacker was arrested and incarcerated in a mental hospital, at least at first. He was imprisoned later.
185-mile range. Moscow itself is, at closest point, less than 300 miles from the Ukrainian border. A missile with a range of 185 miles could hit important cities such as Kaluga, Voronezh, and Volgograd (former Stalingrad), among others.
I agree, for once, with Janet Street-Porter. The whole thing has been overdone. Instead of a quiet, dignified series of events, a mass circus in which good taste and real respect has been —partly at least— left behind.

At last the Russian high command is starting to think truly tactically, meaning in this case obliquely.
It will be recalled that the Iraqi Army flooded large areas at one time, in the 1980s and later, both when fighting Iran and when fighting the “Allied forces” (USA, mainly).
I made that point a few days ago on the blog, citing the dictum of Clausewitz about how the ratio “moral” or morale vis a vis the “material” is 3:1.
We tend to forget that, though the southeastern part of Ukraine is a war zone, that does not mean that all areas suffer continuous fighting. Far from it. The Ukraine is about 3x the size of the UK, and nearly 5x the size of England. The southeastern parts known as the Donbass or Don Basin (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) are, together, about half the size of England.
“...a new recession, heralded by galloping inflation – the real thief in the night for working-class people, has caught the government off guard, with a new PM who has everything to prove, having been elected by a small number of Conservative members.”
[Rafael de Miguel, in El Pais]
“The risk is always that the UK ends up not as Global Britain but Little England. This, too, would have been a nightmare for the Queen.”
[Antonello Guerrera, La Repubblica]
Pound sliding, inflation stoking, and recession likely
Still think that closing down the economy for almost 2 years (because a virus was supposedly killing one out of every thousand people, mostly aged and/or with serious pre-existing health problems), and while doling out “free” money to individuals and companies via “furlough” payments, grants, “loans” etc, was a good policy? Think again.
A delusionary time, but what happens once the funeral of the late Queen has been held?
The death of the late Queen, and the consequent ritual arrangements and spectacles, is occupying the msm in the UK to an almost (?) unprecedented extent.
It may be that the Diana death hysteria of 1997, about which I have heard, and the Silver Jubilee of 1977, were similar; I cannot say, having been out of the UK when those two events occurred. In 1977, I was in Rhodesia, and in 1997 I was in Kazakhstan.
In fact, I only heard of the Diana incident 2-3 days after it happened, when I attended a regular Monday morning meeting at my office in Almaty, the then capital.
The British Embassy opened a book of condolence, and I was told by one of my Embassy contacts that, out of all the ~70 British residents (in the city) of which the Embassy was aware, I was the only one who had not signed (though not because I was hostile to Diana, but because of simple lack of interest).
My non-signing may have also been noted because, about 10 months previously, I had attended by invitation a royal reception at the Ambassador’s official Residence, where I had met and briefly chatted to Prince Charles, as he then was. Also, because I was at the Embassy quite often, at least a couple of times per week.
I have blogged in the past about how, on my return to London a few weeks later, friends told me about the collective psychosis (?) that had descended (on London at least), with pubs full of blubbing drinkers etc.
I am now thinking ahead to the day, or perhaps two or three days after the funeral of the late Queen (next Monday, 19 September 2022). What then?
We as a nation (insofar as Britain still is a nation) face huge economic problems, as well as ingrained social problems. The cloud of illusion all too obvious this week on TV, in the Press etc will blow away, and the country may come down to Earth with a very hard jolt.
The sentiment around the enormous queues going to see the late Queen’s coffin etc is somewhat illusory. The hundreds of thousands of people shuffling toward Westminster, or lining the Mall, are still only about 1% of the whole UK population. The vast majority, almost all in fact, seem to be English/British, i.e. white, and most (that I have seen in photos, on TV etc), are middle-aged or elderly.
This will all look very different in six months’ time.

“It is not the function of the police to patrol our minds“.
That is the tragedy of those who, like me, must keep the true flames of England and Britain flaring.
…and Trump failed, in his last weeks in office, to pardon thousands of nationalist and/or social-nationalist prisoners serving heavy time in Federal prison. Trump could have saved them from that, and their families from huge distress and harm, but chose not to do that. Same with Julian Assange and the defector of conscience, Snowden.
Trump = Useless.
As I always blogged, Trump as President was just a squawking parrot in a gilded cage, guarded by a troop of Jews.
Still, it will be interesting to see whether he can come back in the next US Presidential contest. I suppose that is why his opponents are trying to get him indicted first.
Look at Trump’s replacement…
Funny? Pathetic? Or does it make anyone angry? That demented old guy might well launch a nuclear attack on Russia; and if he and those around him (or controlling him) do that, the UK would be mainly a pile of irradiated ashes in a matter of days, possibly hours, after the commencement of hostilities…
Not that we here in the UK can afford to laugh too loudly…
I wonder…could it be that Charles has spent most of his 74 years (as of this November) wanting to be King, and (?) preparing to be King, only to find that, now that he is King, he cannot really hold down the “job” (position, rank, status) and, quite likely, already finds the routine of being King rather irksome? We shall see.
Other European countries have had kings and emperors even in the past century or so, only to dispense with them in the end: Germany, Italy, Portugal, Austria-Hungary etc.
Rudolf Steiner predicted that a time would come when all sorts of depravity and evil would become prominent in society, and that society would congratulate itself on how “liberal” and “tolerant” society had become. Are we there already?
There is, for some of us, a feeling akin to fin de siecle, despite the fact that the century is only 22 years old.
What I mean is a feeling perhaps similar to that of the post-Edwardian age just before the First World War:
Incidentally, a very good film. I have seen it on VHS or DVD. I wish that I had seen it when it was first shown at the Curzon arthouse cinema in Curzon Street, Mayfair in —I think— 1985. I often passed by that cinema at the time (1984-1985); I noticed the posters outside advertising The Shooting Party.
When I drove through Romania from Bulgaria to Hungary in 2001, before any of those states were in the EU, it was a strange and backward-seeming country (though Bulgaria was far worse). Probably better now, with all the EU money pumped in.
“The Great Reset” is no “conspiracy theory”. It is the agenda being implemented by a transnational conspiracy (or “consensus”, if you prefer) during the 33 years 2022-2055.
Think about how the world changed from 1923 to 1956, or 1956 to 1989, and then 1989-2022. That’s the point. A world-changing agenda, carried out in plain sight but controlled by secretive cabals across the world, working together in what the freemasons might call “concord”.
For myself, I would not go quite so far as that…only 90% of the way.
Good point, surely?
Many are pointing out that Andrew has held that distinction since 1981, and that it is therefore not a (new) decision by the King, but he obviously chose to confirm the situation rather than change it by removing Andrew from that role (assuming that convention permits that— I do not see why not).
I don’t know, but it seems to me that, whatever one might say about the late Queen, she rarely put a foot wrong in public in her long reign. Charles has only been King for a few days, and already appears to be floundering.
Americans call such an outbreak a “chimp-out”. I think that I prefer chimps.
There will be, in the end, only one way to deal with this.
England as Ruritania
I read that Prince Andrew has now been confirmed as “Earl of Inverness” (though he has in fact held the title since 1986). These titles, meaning nothing, are strange and pathetic baubles, as are the various badges and chains of the various orders of chivalry. The very name— “orders of chivalry“! About 600 years after such things had any reality. The Order of the Garter, of the Bath etc. Some of the dormant orders are even more peculiar, such as “The Order of the Star of India”. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_chivalry#Modern_orders.
Strange too, that the new King Charles seems to be spending his days doling out titles etc, or worrying about whether his fountain pen is leaking, when the country is facing huge challenges in the very near future.
The “I stand with Ukraine” nonsense and/or virtue-signalling is an unholy concatenation of largely-fake Ukrainian nationalism, Jew-Zionist support for the Jew-Zionist Zelensky regime in Kiev, and New World Order [NWO] manipulation.
Written by an analyst from the Royal United Services Institute: academic background at Westminster School, the University of York (History), and the LSE (International Relations). No direct military experience. Still, worth reading:
“In less than a week, more than 3,000 square kilometres of Ukrainian territory had been liberated, massive stockpiles of ammunition, weapons and armoured vehicles captured for use by Ukrainian forces, and the entire Russian position in North-Eastern Ukraine completely destabilised.
Russian forces have not suffered such a serious and rapid military defeat on the battlefield since the Second World War.
Worse still for Putin is that fact that he has no good options for how to react now.
The majority of his potentially mobile and elite units in Ukraine are still concentrated in Kherson to the south, and are facing a serious and ongoing Ukrainian counter-offensive operation that cannot be ignored.
Furthermore, by signalling for so long that Kherson was target for liberation, Ukraine has baited Russia into accepting an attritional battle in a very militarily disadvantageous position.
The region of Kherson Oblast that Russia is trying to hold onto is on the Western bank of the wide Dnipro river.
The US-supplied long range HIMARS rocket artillery system has allowed Ukraine to effectively destroy the only two crossing points – the Antonovsky Bridge and the bridge at Nova Kahkovka – and regularly destroy the temporary pontoon bridges and ferry crossings that the Russian Army has tried to build instead.
As such, the large concentration of Russian forces defending Kherson are dependent on highly disrupted and bottlenecked supply lines, meaning that they are rapidly running low on medical supplies, food and above all ammunition.
This is an attritional battle that favours Ukraine due to the territory involved but for Putin, Kherson has to be defended politically due to its status as the one major Ukrainian city taken roughly intact during this invasion.
Now with his northern flank collapsing, Putin cannot easily withdraw elite units from Kherson, since it would risk a second major rout in the face of the ongoing Ukrainian counter-offensive operations there.
Even if he tries to withdraw some forces, the blown up bridges and frequently-struck temporary crossing points over the Dnipro mean it will be difficult to transfer heavy equipment and vehicles out of Kherson.
If his forces stay put in the south, then the majority of Russia’s usable combat power will be trapped with their backs to the river and steadily ground down by a Ukrainian force that has much better supply lines, more troops and so can sustain an attritional artillery duel for longer.
However, if the Kherson front were to collapse, it would be such a political and military disaster coming soon after the stunning defeat in Kharkiv that Russian military morale might totally disintegrate, or Putin might even find himself threatened by discontented factions within the Russian power structure at home.“
Bronk? Odd name. I wonder what are its origins.
Here is the Daily Mail map:
While “3,000 square kilometres” sounds vast, and is in fact about twice the area of Greater London, it is only 1% of the land area of Ukraine, and about 5% or so of the area controlled until recently by Russian forces.
Until now, Russian attacks on a large scale have only affected areas east of the Dnieper, areas in the Sea of Azov and Back Sea coastal belt, and —at the start of the invasion— areas around Kiev.
Until very recently, Russia has not much attacked the strategic civilian infrastructure of most of the Western part of Ukraine, or even Kiev— electrical supply, water supply, gas supply, railways, airports, major roads etc.
It may be that Putin is considering doing just that, possibly even using tactical nuclear weapons, in order to degrade the surviving economy and lifestyle of the Ukrainian population living hundreds of miles away from the battlefields of Eastern Ukraine and the South.

Verräterin. A traitor not only to Germany but to all of Europe.
On a related point, there are, even now, a few cranks, mostly aged persons, who have not woken up to the fact that the facemask nonsense is yesterday’s news (yesterday’s State-sponsored panic campaign). I was in Waitrose earlier today, and saw two people still wearing their facemask muzzles: some old bird buying a load of medicines, filthy-looking “disposable” mask half-worn; the other a loony-looking old fellow wearing his muzzle, driving out of the car park in his own car (in which he was the only occupant!).
I have also seen a few hysterical Jews on Twitter waiting to be told by “authority” that the “panicdemic” is over before they ditch the muzzles. Complete idiots.
It will be hard (I think, I hope) for the transnational conspiracy to resurrect “Covid” as a way of corralling the masses again. Too many people in the UK and across the world have woken up to it all.
I wonder what the next ploy will be. The conspiracy has already tried “monkeypox”, only for even the tame msm scribblers to discover that it affects mainly men who do anal sex, so that failed to fly with the public as a whole.
Perhaps some new and “unexpected” “variant” or whatever will “suddenly appear”, frightening the public again, but the story will have to be pretty alarming to get the bulk of the people on board again.
In the meantime, other “campaigns” have been launched, notably the “I stand with Ukraine” rubbish.
In case any readers are wondering why I now rarely repost material from Nick Griffin, the reason is because I was expelled from Twitter in 2018, at the instigation of a pack of Jews. As a result (and because I have no “sock accounts”, and because Twitter has started even more-reressive censorship), I cannot even read most of Griffin’s tweets because they are “restricted by age” etc.
Twitter has done everything possible to gag Griffin short of actually expelling him. It is made difficult to search for his tweets, and even then there is a pathetic warning notice in place.
As I predicted, Elon Musk realized that Twitter is partly, perhaps largely, a scam, and not a genuine and profitable enterprise. Musk has withdrawn and will not be buying into it.
As has become usual, many of the tweets I reposted a year ago are now only there skeletally, now that so many interesting tweeters have been expelled from Twitter. The Jew-Zionist element is behind most of the purging and “cancelling”.
Thoughts re. the Russian retreat in parts of Ukraine east of the Dnieper
I believe that Clausewitz wrote that, in war, the moral is to the physical in a ratio 3:1.
Morale, esprit de corps, confidence, and belief in the rightness of a cause, as against numbers of soldiers, equipment, arms, ammunition.
Despite the Kiev regime being a horrible, dictatorial, corrupt and Jew-Zionist-led kleptocracy, the simple Ukrainian soldiers at the front think that they are fighting for “Ukraine”, its history and culture, and for some kind of “freedom”. Also, for their homes and families.
However wrongheaded at least part of that is, it is a powerful message and, to those directly involved, congruent.
The Russian soldiers, many of them, are young, naive, not infrequently drunk, often ill-disciplined, and actually have more in common with many of their Ukrainian opposite numbers than with the savage Chechens fighting on the Russian side, and who have stained Russia’s reputation during this conflict.
The Russian soldiers, some of whom have their homes and families as far away as Siberia, have evidently not been properly prepared ideologically for the situation into which they have been thrust. The present Russian Army does not have the propaganda and disciplinary structure provided, in Soviet days, by political commissars and others.
The result of the above factors is that the Ukrainian soldiers’ morale is generally far higher than that of the Russian soldiers.
As previously blogged, the only way Russia is going to get through this is to augment numbers and armament, but principally to think “outside the box” by using shock tactics and, equally importantly, oblique tactics and, above all, unexpected tactics.
Do you notice any similarity between these two crimes?
“Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral will take place on Monday September 19 – which has been declared a bank holiday.
Several NHS Trusts have said that some non-urgent procedures and clinic appointments are to be postponed with King’s College Hospital stating this would be the ‘vast majority‘.
Hip and knee replacements, cataract surgery, maternity checks and some cancer treatments are among the postponed appointments, at a time when NHS data shows nearly 40 per cent of cancer patients had their treatment delayed beyond the two-month maximum.
However NHS England said that Covid vaccination services and urgent and emergency appointments would continue.”
How ludicrous is that? People in great pain, in some cases, people needing knee and hip replacements, people with cancer, all postponed (in some cases for months).
What makes it even more ludicrous is that the useless and quite possibly harmful “Covid” “vaccinations” etc will still be done (with the staff doing that probably getting double or triple pay).

A lot of truth in that (read the whole thread), but it is all too American and “how to get ahead” and “aspirational” for me.
Ridiculous, but in a way what I would have expected from that organization.
I myself have never been to a Center Parcs location, but a couple of people (admittedly about 30 years ago) told me that their impression was not very good. The quite high price did not cover many of the activities offered, for one thing. Those activities have to be paid for on top of the basic price for going there.
It may be better for people who go there with small children, I do not know, but imagine a resort (which is effectively what Center Parcs is, a modern take on the old Soviet “sanatorium” model) that chucks out its guests for one day so that it can virtue-signal re. the funeral of the late Queen. I suppose that staff shortages might be a factor too, but the unexpected holiday is only one day. Surely a skeleton operation could be kept going? Seems wrong to me.
“Center Parcs has backtracked after facing accusations of “ruining people’s holidays”by announcing it would close its UK sites for 24 hours from Monday morning to mark the Queen’s funeral.
However, on Tuesday evening, after an outcry on social media and widespread negative press reports, the company said that it had “reviewed our position regarding the very small number of guests who are not due to depart on Monday and we will be allowing them to stay on our villages rather than having to leave and return on Tuesday”.” [The Guardian]].
I would give it 3 out of 5 stars, maybe. Not more.
The Hitler character was, both in character and personality, not so much a portrayal as a caricature.
The locations filmed, and sets— all very good.
Neville Chamberlain was played well by Jeremy Irons, though looking too robust (despite the health problems mentioned); the real Chamberlain was, at that age, more of a grey figure, I think.
The flaws in the film, leaving aside the central assumption (that the Munich Agreement bought Britain time vis a vis Hitler/Germany), were in the small things: the “blacks with everything” agenda, which put a black man in Downing Street as a civil servant, indeed in a fairly senior position. That would have been unthinkable in the Britain of 1938. Also, an Indian woman as niece of Colonel Sir Stewart Menzies, the then Chief of SIS. If not unthinkable, unlikely.
Another absurdity (which had little to do with the main plot, and looked like a “me too” add-on) was that a Jewish woman, openly anti-Hitler, was —sometime in the 1930s— arrested or abducted by the SS, had a Star of David carved into her back, and was then defenestrated, ending up paralyzed and unable to speak.
There is a cultural truth-bending agenda going on, one which distorts history, in particular as to race.
