“Ms Rimington would secretly report him to the Government’s anti-terrorism programme, Prevent, after he delivered a sermon that, he says, moderately and carefully presented the Christian viewpoint on identity questions.

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.
Dictatorial “lockdown”, mishandled Brexit, continuing mass immigration (though slowed by some voluntary repatriation over past months), collapsing real economy, sliding real estate values in London. Mass unemployment. Huge divides opening up, socially, culturally and politically.
There is no “revolutionary situation” in the UK. Not yet. By 2022, there may be, or at least the start of one.
“Dr” Louise Raw, prolific “antifascist” tweeter, fantasizing about being able to arrest, have arrested, or see being arrested, those with whom she disagrees socially or politically. Not “just” those she and her type label “fascist”, “Nazi”, “neo-Nazi” etc, but also persons such as American alt-Right journalist Andrew Ngo, or London radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer.
As I have often noted in this blog, “socialism” died around 1989 and has been replaced by the grotesqueries of “Black Lives Matter”, LGBTQXYZ nonsense, “trans” nonsense, “antiracism” nonsense and all the other socio-political absurdities we now see around the self-describing “Left”.
Silly people such as “Dr” Raw tweet about locking people up for their views, but she at least seems (?) to have enough awareness to realize that she and her cohorts cannot actually do that. She and they are reduced to bleating that the State, or someone, or anyone, should take such measures.
The self-describing UK “Left” is now the haunt not of the scoundrel, not solely anyway, but of those in a comfortable, unthinking, and mutually-supporting niche, who want to be told what to think, say or do by the EU, official bodies, “Covid marshals” etc. Thus they love Twitter, and their greatest joy is to see someone of whom they disapprove expelled from Twitter. They put forward no programme, have no political traction, and are basically irrelevant.
I might add, “ask not for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee“…
“In the preface to the second edition of The Eighteenth Brumaire, Marx stated that the purpose of this essay was to “demonstrate how the class struggle in France created circumstances and relationships that made it possible for a grotesque mediocrity to play a hero’s part.”” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eighteenth_Brumaire_of_Louis_Bonaparte. [my bold emphasis].
Is that how Philby secretly viewed himself? As a “grotesque mediocrity” nonetheless able to play a role arguably (in Philby’s mind?) “heroic”? Was that one reason why Philby drank so much, that dissonance?
I suppose that we shall never know. In any event, I myself am sceptical of the (supposed) importance or significance of Philby, despite the books which continue to be churned out about him, mostly in the UK.
As a matter of fact, I once (in fact more than once; several times) met someone who had once met Philby, or at least had heard him give a lecture. I should have been more curious and asked about that person’s impression of the “great spy” and/or “great traitor”.
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable” [John F. Kennedy, 1962].
If all peaceful protest, publicity and discussion is made impossible and even unlawful, the eventual result will be something more direct.
Talk about “cultural appropriation”!
One of the most telling ways in which the Jew-Zionist lobby has poisoned the UK is in the “denial” label. First there was “holocaust” “denial”, aimed at anyone, whether professional historian or not, questioning the “holocaust” narrative in whole or part (even the ludicrous “gas chambers” nonsense).
After that came climate change “denial”, a term aimed at anyone questioning the causes or effects of what was originally termed “global warming”. As with “holocaust” “denial”, it turns out that the “deniers” have at least the preponderance of fact on their side: Prince Charles and others were wrong when they said, in 2009, that humanity had 3, then 5, then 7 years “to save the planet”.
It turned out that the “experts” were not only wrong but actively mendacious in saying that the Himalayan glaciers would soon melt completely, resulting in the Ganges, Indus and Brahmaputra all running dry.
‘Gore claims the snowcap atop Africa’s Mt. Kilimanjaro is shrinking and that global warming is to blame. Yet according to the November 2003 issue of Nature magazine, “Although it’s tempting to blame the ice loss on global warming, researchers think deforestation of the mountain’s foothills is the more likely culprit. Without the forests’ humidity, previously moisture-laden winds blew dry. No longer replenished with water, the ice is evaporating in the strong equatorial sunshine.”‘ “
Well, now we have “Covid-19” “denial”! Anyone questioning the origins of “the virus”, anyone saying that the World Economic Forum and others are using the virus as a means for a “Great Reset”, anyone questioning the utility of repressive government measures such as facemask-mandating, “lockdowns” etc is a “denier”, a kind of heretic, probably a criminal or even a murderer…
This is that happens when it becomes a heresy to question officially-supported fact-narratives. Beware.
“In free countries…”. Quite…
Peter Hitchens still regards the UK as sort-of “free”. Debatable?
Hitler’s policy was resettlement of Jews. Millions did leave Germany, millions left Europe, in the 1930s and early 1940s. USA, UK, Australia, Palestine, and other places too.
What was “unhinged” was the UK and France offering Poland a “guarantee” in 1939 which was not worth the paper on which it was written. That spurious “guarantee” triggered WW2 as surely as the mass mobilizations of 1914 had triggered WW1.
More accurately, the “guarantee” to Poland, when not just ignored by the UK and France on the fateful days of 1-3 September 1939, triggered that disastrous war.
All well and good, but a System MP of that kind will just laugh at critical tweets, emails, letters etc.
Again, good as far as it goes, but that particular MP is not disposed to listen.
I lived in Cornwall for two years or so (and another two on the Devon side of the Tamar), having from 2002 to 2004 a lease of one of the largest country houses in North Cornwall (seen below in a 1940s photograph):
The immediately above photograph shows me standing by the ballroom carriage entrance. Incidentally, I am not giving a “Hitler” or “Roman” salute, but merely trying to pose “casually” for the picture, as if resting my hand on the stonework. I am not (it goes without saying) a natural photographic subject…
Cornwall offers few people well-paid work; small businesses such as the Cornish Cheese Company (I am not a shareholder, by the way!) need encouragement to succeed or even survive. The geographical location of Cornwall, its relative isolation, increases shipping costs, and so on.
I have no idea what shenanigans are going on in the Bristol Labour Party, but what might have been expected from Keir Starmer? It amuses me to see the parallels between him and that little pissant, “Conservative” Party Cabinet minister, Robert Jenrick: both completely in the pocket of the Jewish lobby, both married to Jewish wives (both of whom are property lawyers), both having children all being brought up as Jewish (eg celebrating the Jewish supremacist religious holidays etc).
Surprising court judgment
It is not for me to say whether or not that peculiar woman, Camila Batmanghelidjh, was in some measure a fraud, or whether what she did was in any measure fraudulent. All that can be said was that very large amounts of State funding were spent and probably wasted on a “motley crew” of inner city London ferals. She was in charge (supposedly).
All one can say for sure is that the government of the part-Jew, David Cameron-Levita, was a complete mess.
Supposedly of Iranian origin. (((I wonder))).
If correct, that certainly is terrible.
Fortunately for Patriotic Alternative, most of those seeing any such Sun “newspaper” expose will only look at the pictures!
One puppet of the Jewish lobby has been replaced by another. All hail “democracy”…
As we move towards the very significant year 2022, it can be seen that the groups, cabals or “ruling circles” of the West are gearing up.
The whole “virus” and vaccines narrative has become almost hysterical. Yes, a million people have died “with” this virus (most of whom would have died anyway at or near the same time, from other conditions they had), but that is out of eight thousand million (i.e. 8 billion) human beings on the Earth. One in every eight thousand.
I do not say that “the virus” does not exist. Of course it does. Something like 50,000 have died with it in the UK, out of about 70 million inhabitants (about one death for every 1,400 people in the UK). It is a serious public health problem, but is hardly the Plague or the Black Death.
In much of the UK, the population has been basically unaffected. Anecdotally, I personally do not know a single person who has had “the virus”, let alone died from it. Indeed, as far as I know, I do not know anyone who knows anyone who has had it, even asymptomatically.
It is clear that the virus has been weaponized, across the “West” especially, meaning Europe, North America, Australasia, to corral the population into both obedience to State orders and into being injected with the vaccine(s). The fact that there is already mooted the strong possibility of compulsion or “nudge” semi-compulsion is deeply suspicious.
Leaving aside “the virus” question, we see that the System is also behind the ludicrous “Black Lives Matter” campaign. That too is tied up with large-scale movements, behind which are those same groups or “ruling circles”. The “Great Replacement” of white Europeans both in Europe and across the world. White Genocide.
The “useful idiots” here are of course the “blacks and browns” and other non-whites, as well as the pathetic”antifa” and “anti-racist” types, all used by the System as a battering ram. The blacks think that they are about to take over, whereas they are just being used by transnational tyrants as a catspaw.
“The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making…As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies...” [World Economic Forum].
There it is. The “ruling circles” think that “the virus” (the true origins of which are unknown) creates a wonderful opportunity to reshape the world the way they want.
The last year in that 33-year cycle was 1989. If one had to pinpoint a year in which “socialism” in various forms died, it would be 1989. After 1989, “socialism” of the old sort lost whatever credibility remained to it.
In the 1980s, in the Soviet Union, the CPSU (Communist Party) was on its last legs, legs of straw. “Perestroika” (a mere word or slogan proclaiming “rebuilding” but in fact meaning demolition of a socialist command economy) was the cry; in fact the legs of that old command economy were being cut off.
Within a few years after 1989, a pack of Jews had descended on Russia (and the other republics) and were carpetbagging on an unprecedented scale, buying whole huge industrial sectors for peanuts. Even before 1989, a few pioneer Western corporate lawyers were going to Moscow. The first one resident there was a Jew or part-Jew, UK based and whom I myself later met on a few occasions both in London and overseas.
I recall when Gorbachev, not yet officially the leader, came to London in 1984. The red carpet was quite literally rolled out for him, for example, by large Western enterprises. I saw one such carpet being laid down a day or so before his arrival (it was not shown on the TV news until he had actually been to the place, the HQ of one of the largest UK engineering companies): http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/december/16/newsid_2560000/2560125.stm
In other words, the “Wise Men of the West” were well aware that socialism, as such, had had its day, the socialism which their own predecessors had “injected”, via Lenin (part-Jew) and Trotsky (full Jew), into Russia.
Those Western “ruling circles” and cabals were preparing for the post-1989, post-socialist world already in 1984, and no doubt long before then.
One example: the American Jew economist, Sachs, first advised the Polish Government in 1989, then moved on to the Soviet Union a couple of years later, as it died, promoting a “capitalism in 100 days” concept. This was partly carried out under Yeltsin and his clique. Millions died (quietly…most were pensioners) of malnutrition and whatever else as the economy tanked. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_Sachs#Advising_in_post-communist_economies
Across Western and Central Europe, parties formerly at least notionally “social-democratic” if not “socialist” either fell or became finance-capitalist in all but label or presentation. In the UK, the Labour Party abandoned its commitment to a form of socialism by 1995 (though substituting a form of meaningless “communitarian” words): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clause_IV. There was never a serious attempt to revive Clause 4, even under Corbyn.
The overall point that I am making is that 1989 was the pivotal year, though significant events happened both before and after that year. The death of socialism.
Other manifestations included the fall of the Berlin Wall (also 1989) and with it the DDR system of not only government but also society. As in most of Eastern and Central Europe, the DDR socialist regime simply gave up.
Yes, there are a few “socialist” states still around: Cuba, North Korea etc. They have as little significance as the surviving hunter-gatherer tribes of the Arctic, Australia or Latin America.
Since 1989, the prevailing ideology worldwide has been finance-capitalism, but a finance-capitalism permeated by globalism.
The next world-historic year will be 2022. We can see the Western cabals preparing for it: the removal of free expression or free speech, especially online (which has developed entirely since 1989), the fake communitarianism, the push to (start to) eliminate the white European peoples completely, by race-mixing, by intimidation, but mostly by propaganda and brainwashing, starting at the school and even pre-school level; the normalization of mixed-race couples and mixed-race offspring etc.
The NWO cabals thought that their work would be more successful than it has been. The 1989-2022 plan was partly derailed by at least two major trends; the first was the unexpected revival of Russian national spirit, meaning patriotism, culture, political will under Putin (for all his flaws), and military might (which is still growing).
The second impediment to the New World Order [NWO] in the 1989-2022 period was the upsurge in Arab/Muslim military and paramilitary activity, from the more terroristic in the West to the outright war of the “ISIS” barbarians in the Middle East.
Those two factors slowed the progress of the NWO. We see now, as 2022 approaches, that both are blocked or weakened: Russia weakened by economic sanctions, and the various forms of Arab/Muslim upsurge or resistance running out of steam, or crumbling. For example, the Gulf states, I think Jordan too, either have or will soon have given official recognition to the Israeli state. That may only have formalized previous unofficial ties, but the timing is significant.
The previous years in the cycle have all been very important: 1989, 1956, 1923, for example.
The necessity now is for Europe itself to recover its racial and cultural memory.
In the UK too. People are being softened up for huge standard-of-living falls, under cover of “the virus”, when 90% of the problem has been caused by the Government measures. Hundreds of billions are being thrown away by Rishi Sunak and Boris-idiot, yet already we see one billion shaven off the railways support.
It’s all connected with “The Great Reset” etc.
Good point. If Corbyn was no good electorally, was Miliband better? Brown?
Rachel Reeves, 2010-2015, parrotted the same line as David Cameron-Levita (remember that little bastard?) and George Osborne, more or less. They all belong to Friends of Israel…Oh, wait…
How absolutely typical of “them”. The Jew-Zionists always want “apology” for non-existent “wrongs”. That way they completely crush their victims spiritually, making them into craven doormats who can be then simply swept away without anyone noticing or caring.
Labour failed to win the 2019 General Election partly because, every day after Corbyn became leader, the Jew-Zionist element in the newspapers, on TV, on radio, and online were trashing not only Corbyn but also Labour.
I do not “support” Labour, as such, but if anyone is owed an apology it is the Labour membership, and it is owed that apology by the anti-Corbyn plotters in the msm and online, and by the Jewish lobby Labour Party MPs (some now ex-MPs, and not all Jewish, incidentally), such as Margaret Hodge, Luciana Berger, Tom Watson, Joan Ryan, Anna Turley, Mary Creagh, Emma Reynolds, Ruth Smeeth, Jess Phillips, Mike Gapes, Ian Austin, John Woodcock and others.
Hitchens may be right about the teaching; after all, Eton even has its own orchestra with full-time conductor, and teaching staff have included such as John le Carre (David Cornwell), but the connections are the main reason why Old Etonians flourish.
The above-linked article starts with the evident assumption that so-called “radical right” persons and organizations have to be smothered. That is the aim. Method? To “deplatform” them (eg on YouTube or elsewhere) while also taking unspecified other measures.
Not a hint in that article about the importance of free expresson on socio-political topics, not a hint that the Western “democracy” her organization supposedly supports should be open to non-System voices. Well, after all, the writer does come from the country where the Inquisition reached its most extreme level and where, more recently, the leaders of Catalan independence were sentenced, mostly in absentia, to long terms of imprisonment for dissidence.
Look at how far Africa has fallen since it was under European rule…
I see the present situation in the UK, and in the world generally, as akin to those filmed images of the South Asian tsunami of years ago: people sunbathing or paddling in the ocean, many unaware of the enormous wave forming not far out to sea; a few starting to become aware of the danger but unable to do anything about it in the time available, even to the extent of fleeing.
We are approaching 2022, the most significant year since 1989. The international consensus/conspiracy has had to step up some aspects of its propaganda to frenetic levels: the whole “blacks in every television ad” stuff, the attack on every positive aspect of European history and culture, the “Covid-19” fear propaganda, the sharply-increasing censorship of Internet expression. It’s all connected on some level.
For me, the most significant fact in the UK itself is the absence of any social-national party or movement of any size or credibility. Anything that shows vitality and possibility is being repressed, whether the organization is a radical action-oriented one of young people, or one emphasizing community activity; the same would be true of a political party, if one with any credibility were to exist.
What is remarkable is that we are not seeing State repression alone, meaning police, prosecutions, prison sentences. A new aspect has come ito play— repression of political organizations (and also of individuals) by private enterprises such as banks, wire-pay companies, Internet service providers and platforms.
Thus we see that individuals, whether unconnected with organizations, or who are connected, are expelled from Twitter etc. David Icke, Katie Hopkins, many others (including me).
Those who are the “useful idiots” of the System, of ZOG/NWO, are not expelled… the pseudo-socialists, the “anti-fascists”, the “alt-Right” weasellers such as “Prison Planet” Watson.
Look at “Patriotic Alternative”: Mark Collett not only expelled from Twitter, but refused service by his bank! Collett’s colleague, Laura Towler, is so far still on Twitter, but she too has had her personal bank account withdrawn!
As we have seen across the board, private enterprises now collaborate with State agencies to repress dissent.
Well, I did better, yet again, than John Rentoul, if I may be so immodest. 7/10 as against his 5/10. I did not know the answers to questions 5, 6 and 9.
The idea that the BBC puts out, that the nation (if there is still a “nation”) sits waiting agog for Question Time, is ludicrous. The old 1940s radio Brains Trust, reimagined for TV. It lost any reputation for impartiality when it participated in the ambush of Nick Griffin and the BNP in 2009.
Now that David Dimbleby has gone, and his seat taken by smug and hugely overpaid Fiona Bruce, it is unwatchable. The panel members are usually dull and predictable, the audience “selected”…
I admit that what I have said is based on having seen QT last quite a while ago, but from what I hear it just gets worse. It’s a 1950s or 1960s show in the 21stC Internet age.
Below: re.the facemask nonsense:
Quite. Both Hitchens and tweeter “@simsy1977” are right. The twist today, though, is that the dictatorships of the fairly recent past were more obvious: lots of uniforms, often inhumanly efficient, the State with a monopoly on repression. As I noted above in today’s blog, there are new additions to that mix: the collaboration of large finance-capitalist enterprises, actively involved in suppressing free speech etc. Something else too: the miasma of “political correctness”, a sub-Stalinism operating in schools, universities, local councils, the police force(s), everywhere.
“What does Green mean anyway? It doesn’t mean you love the planet. It means you love a slogan.
I have always been a defender of our natural heritage. I feel almost physical pain at the sight and sound of a tree being cut down. I mourned the destruction of the railways and the tyranny of the motor car which resulted. I have for 40 years endured the mockery of colleagues and the spite of drivers for riding a bicycle, alas for me in a Right-wing way. I paid over the odds to travel abroad by train rather than plane, long before Greta Thunberg was even born.
But none of this counts in my favour. Because the new Green Frenzy is a faith-based dogma, not a set of considered opinions.
As Labour leader Keir Starmer discovered in his Trotskyist 20s, a moralising, self-righteous alleged concern for the planet is the new Marxism.
It’s not a moral system. It is organised hypocrisy in which you show you are good by saying the right thing. Actions don’t matter. It’s your mind they care about.
If you’re a Hollywood star, you can fly first class and ride in a petrol-gulping car just so long as you swear allegiance to the Cult of Greta. But you may be sure that others will suffer for it, whether they like it or not.
The wild plans embraced by Johnson last week will cost billions in subsidies, and so in taxes. They will endanger the power supply. They will also mean more children slaving for small change in the hellish mines of the Congo, to find the raw materials for the batteries on which this noble project relies.
Life, you may be sure, will be poorer, darker, colder and generally glummer, again, quite a bit like East Germany.” [Peter Hitchens, in The Mail on Sunday].
“Proof that the mask zealots can’t have it both ways
Can a Covid virus move only one way through a mask? Or can it go both in and out? Because if it can go both ways, we now know that all this mask-wearing is an almost complete waste of time.
Barely noticed in any major media, a serious Danish trial of the effectiveness of masks finally reported its findings on Wednesday. Three major scientific journals (shame on them) had refused to publish it – one can only guess why.
The Danes did it properly. They recruited almost 5,000 people. Half wore masks, of rather better quality than the sort mainly worn in Britain. Half didn’t. All lived normal lives. They kept it up for a month. At the end, 1.8 per cent of mask wearers tested positive, and 2.1 per cent of the unmasked tested positive for Covid. In other words, there was almost no difference.
Below, someone who needs “a guide for the perplexed”…
Tweeter “Socialist Chris” might like to consider the following: maybe the “racists” and “cranks” (i.e. those aware of the “JQ”) have been proven right…
It would not matter what “they”, the Zionists, are given, or how much “they” are pandered to, nothing but complete Zionist tyranny is acceptable to “them”.
“Dear Amazon, please send, by expedited delivery, a copy of GULAG Archipelago to tweeter “@shumeigore”.”
Actually, that tweeter’s Twitter timeline is like a perusal of Collet’s London Bookshop, Charing Cross Road, circa 1976! She even publicizes a talk given by Peter Taaffe! I thought (assumed) that he had died long ago! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Taaffe
Applebaum’s “mitigation” or attempted justification for Jewish (Zionist) terrorism is exactly the same as that the IRA used to deploy in the UK of the 1970s, 1980s etc: “we gave a warning…”
When Jews have full power, such brutality is to be expected. Look at what the Bolsheviks (the leaders of which were almost all Jews, in the 1920s and early 1930s) did in Russia and Ukraine (etc).
“ZOG”. It is not a “conspiracy theory”. It is right in front of your eyes.
I must have missed that particular storm in a Twitter teacup. Typical, though. The self-described “Left” (a term which, like “Right”, I never use), or (pseudo-) “socialist” element has nohing much to say.
In 1989, socialism died, all over the world. That was as true of British socialism or social democracy as it was of Soviet socialism (which just expired and evaporated within a couple of years, being replaced by “oligarchic” kleptocracy), and Chinese socialism (which kept the names and forms of socialism while transforming into complete cut-throat capitalism under overall State supervision).
In Britain, the Labour Party changed from a social-democratic party with socialist roots and pretensions into a basically finance-capitalist party with social-democratic pretensions. Clause 4 (nationalization) was ditched; within a few years it was uncontroversial for the half-Jew Mandelson, Tony Blair’s most important ally, to say that he was “intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich“. Imagine Clement Attlee, Harold Wilson or, say, James Callaghan saying that (in public)!
As Labour became a non-socialist party in the 1990s, the more socialist-oriented element in it became infected more and more with the peripheral politics of identity.
As a frequent browser in Collet’s London Bookshop in Charing Cross Road in 1976 (aged 19), I saw that they had shelves devoted to books and magazines about “sexual politics” and the like, as well as what became known as “multiculturalism”. I was social-national even then, and thought that those areas were, even in the context of Marxist/post-Marxist ideology, sideshows at best. I was right then, but wrong down the line, because it was exactly that sort of stuff that eventually took over, not the Labour Party as such, but the more “socialist”-leaning element within it.
What are the concerns of those “socialists” on, say, Twitter? “Refugees” (most of whom are bogus anyway); “LGBT” etc; supporting all the “Covid-19” nonsense (facemasks, lockdowns etc); “black lives matter”. After all those, maybe poverty too, but the real old-style socialists focussed on relief of poverty as of prime importance, together with the whole socio-economic pattern of society. Also, those old-style activists had a idea of how to achieve their objectives. The post-Marxists have exchanged that for what amounts to a virtue-signalling whine.
The Twitterati who think themselves “socialist” (there are exceptions), especially the “antifa” element and the Jew-Zionists, find their greatest pleasure and victory when someone with whom they disagree (usually unthinkingly) is expelled from Twitter. Most interesting tweeters (like me, if I immodestly say so) are now gone from increasingly dull Twitter.
Also, the Twitterati are often found complacently reciting that xyz (like me) have rightly been expelled from Twitter because “Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc are commercial companies and can expel or deny service to anyone”. Pretty pathetic. A surrender to the marketplace, and a quasi-monopolistic marketplace at that. No thought as to the rights of the citizen qua citizen (eg free speech rights) going beyond mere contractual rights.
One might add that Twitter is the main playground of such people. Not the real world where real events happen and where questions of politics, questions of importance, are decided.
Whining on Twitter (“slacktivism”) becomes the substitute for real political or social action.
You can see all of that in the Corbyn saga of recent years. Corbyn Labour was not without its virtues, though Corbyn was really a surviving example of an old-style socialist surrounded by those new-style pseudo-socialist virtue-signallers; political coelacanth [“Coelacanths were thought to have become extinct in the Late Cretaceous, around 66 million years ago, but were rediscovered in 1938…The coelacanth was long considered a “living fossil““— Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coelacanth].
The result of the obsession with peripheral matters (perhaps the most bizarre and off-piste is re. “transphobia”) has been that Labour itself (and the so-called “Left” in general) has become politically almost irrelevant, despite the Labour Party being the only major “opposition” to a Conservative Party government of surpassing incompetence.
Matters of wide public concern: mass immigration and migration-invasion; education; NHS services; a future for the young; security for the old; the environment; housing; pay and benefits.
There are really only two groups now vying for ideological supremacy under the superficial show of politics: the System of “ZOG”, “NWO” etc, and social nationalism. The so-called “Left”, though vocal, is an irrelevance on the wider stage.
The year 2022, 33 years on from the last “reset” of world politics in and after 1989, will be of prime importance. Large-scale change.
I had not previously heard of this backwoods MP. Seems that he was a teacher, somewhere; where? Only a (brief?) stint as headmaster of an unspecified school in Romania is noted. I suspect that he is yet another chancer and freeloader in the Commons. A Romanian wife who is a doctor in Bassetlaw, wherever that is (actually, Nottinghamshire). A prime candidate for my “Deadhead MPs” series. Watch this space.
Perhaps Clarke-Smith might think about how real pay and the real level of State benefits have declined over the years, placing many —even many who are in full-time work— in poverty. He himself has presumably been able to live off his wife’s earnings (at least to a large extent) for years.
Brendan Clarke-Smith seems to be yet another “pleb-Con”. In the German phrase, “put a beggar on a horse and he rides it to death“. Typisch…
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!
