As many of my blog readers will be aware, I quite often watch the TV quiz show, The Chase. I do well, I would even say very well, on many or indeed most topics, but fall down on pop/rock music, current “celebrities” and, to a lesser extent, sports.
I saw one Chase yesterday, but the show was from years ago. A young black woman contestant from Birmingham, who knew almost nothing on any topic. Her present activity (at time of recording)? Law student. Her goal? To become a barrister…
There is no doubt in my mind that the Bar has become a kind of dustbin now. That is particularly true of what are often regarded as the lower levels of Bar work, meaning the criminal law Bar and the family law Bar.
Like so many areas of English/British life, the Bar is really running on empty or, to put it another way, living off its reputation from earlier times.
Other areas and institutions “running on empty” in that way? The Monarchy, the armed forces, the Church of England, SIS/MI6 (and probably MI5 too), the BBC and other msm, Parliament, the electoral system, the Conservative Party, the Labour Party, universities (including, and perhaps particularly, Oxford and Cambridge, with their higher expectation), the whole system of awarding of “degrees”, the Foreign Office, the police force etc.
The outward forms are there but devoid, or almost devoid, of content.
There is far less intellectual curiosity generally in 2022 as compared to, say, 1962, 1972, or even 1992. It is a societal shift; the world of the student “snowflakes” is just a part of that.
Repression of free speech comes from a number of sources, though the worst is the Jew-Zionist element. Others? The Muslim/Islamist element is one other, though relatively minor except where the speech or other expression directly impinges on the religious sensibilities of the Muslims. The “antifa” element (largely though not entirely tied-in with the Jew-Zionists) is another, as is the State itself, via its control organs (police, security orgs etc).
Beyond that, there is the almost hysterical perceived need by many, especially the young, for a sense of comfortable and unchallenging mental or intellectual security. The same impulse is behind the ever-inflating exam —including degree— awards. The “everyone gets a First” culture.
“Blacks with everything”
Arnold Wesker, the Jewish playwright, wrote a play (filmed for TV a couple of times) called Chips with Everything, but in the UK, in TV ads, we now have “blacks with everything”. Every ad on TV, bar a few, must have, it seems, a black man or woman, regardless of context. Often, a black man with white woman in a quasi-marital set-up, and with mixed-race children.
Likewise, every “British” TV drama (even one set in the Tudor era, the Viking era etc) has to include blacks, sometimes even as historical characters who were unassailably white European, such as Anne Boleyn. I am told that the apparently popular drama Bridgerton has blacks as well: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridgerton#Historical_accuracy.
The makers usually weasel out of justified criticism by saying that such programmes are fictional, not meant to be accurate historically etc.
I blogged about this years ago: see
but the intensification of the propaganda campaign has surprised me in its concentration.
For example, this evening, I saw an ad break with a number of ads. Only one, showing a white pensioner enjoying a hearing aid, did not have blacks in it. Some of the others were really ludicrous, such as the ad featuring a black woman as a dairy farmer in England! Are there any such? I do not rule out the remote possibility that one exists somewhere, amid the thousands of white dairy farmers.
Another ad I saw, advertising Cornetto ice-cream, had what seemed to be a basically white family sitting on and around a sofa, with a black man tacked on to one end (like a bookend).
As I have said before, that kind of propaganda is now inescapable, and is not aimed at me (aged 65), not aimed at even 30-somethings; no, it is really aimed at children, or anyway those under 20. People whose critical faculties are as yet not fully developed.
The aim is to normalize the mixed-race society. It is all part of the Coudenhove-Kalergi propaganda campaign, “The Great Replacement”, “The Great Reset” etc.
The international conspiracy is playing a long game, but one the urgency of which has quickened now that we are in 2022, the most significant year since 1989.
Ha. Yes. Some of the prominent Jews on Twitter announce from time to time that they “have Covid” and even “have Covid again“. Some only say so because of an inconclusive test, and without even the mildest symptoms. Pathetic.
Anyone who thinks that “Boris”-idiot will voluntarily give up his chances to grandstand at such pseudo-elite jamborees, is not thinking clearly.
Kremenchuk sits between Dnipro and Kiev, on the river Dnieper. The attack, certainly not random, is a clear sign, and perhaps a warning to Ukrainian civilians, that Russian forces are going to move as I predicted on the blog over the past month or so, i.e. northwards from the Sea of Azov coastal zone, following the river, and (once the Donbass and the Kharkov area are secured) northwest and west respectively from those areas, until most of Ukraine east of the Dnieper is secured and then occupied.
“Kremenchuk is one of the most important railway junctions in Central Ukraine (thanks to its geographical position and a bridge over the River Dnipro) and a major river port on the main river of Ukraine.” [Wikipedia]
So here we start the significant year 2022, the first such year since 1989.
1956 (starting the 33 years following) saw, inter alia, the end, or the beginning of the end, not only of Stalinism (via Khrushchev’s Secret Speech), but also of Sovietism itself; that process came to its fulfilment in 1989.
1956 also saw the emergence of Arab and Muslim oil power (after the Suez Crisis), as well as the start of the growth of Israeli regional power. The start —in significant terms— of the USA/Soviet “space race” too. On a less global scale, my own birth.
1989 saw the open proclamation by President Bush (snr) of the New World Order [NWO]; also the collapse, or the start of the final collapse, of socialism (in all forms) worldwide. Also, the emergence of China as a true world power, and the start of the destruction by the USA [NWO] and Israel of the Arab/Muslim oil bloc, and so its post-1956 stranglehold over the West.
2022 seems to be about to witness the installation of a worldwide biosecurity police state, which may include the microchipping of the entire population of the planet (thus the ability to control and track —and then target— anyone at the will of the NWO, 24/7).
This seems to be co-inciding with the implementation of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan (“white genocide” if you like, meaning the elimination of the European peoples as truly European, racially), and that includes the flooding of all Europe, but particularly Western and Central Europe, by blacks and browns (migrant invaders).
Something similar is occurring in North America and Australasia. TV programs, films, ads, books, magazine stories. all promoting race-mixing and fake “diversity”, via which white people will be (they think) “cancelled”. The “BLM” nonsense is part of that, but only part.
How far the above mainly-evil plans can succeed is open to question; the 1989 plan only worked in part, partly because Russia regrouped and to some extent freed itself again from Jewish takeover, and partly because the Islamist surge, including the attack on the World Trade Center in New York in 2001 (which triggered a limited financial collapse, worsened the dotcom bubble bursting etc), blunted the complete takeover of the Arab/Muslim states, though only at the cost of destruction of almost all of them (as powers).
God’s Will be done. If we want a different kind of future, we may have to fight for it. I hope to play my part, despite now being 66.
Many favour Blair being put on trial before a people’s court, with execution the likely next stop. I personally would settle for Tony and Cherie, and their offspring, to be subject to expropriation of all their monies, properties and other valuable items, hitting those moneygrubbers where it really hurts, with both Tony and Cherie then both forced to dig canals or something of the sort; either unpaid or on minimum wage. I am, naturally, more merciful than the mob…
Don’t you mean the J-word?
America, “land of freedom”…hardy ha ha…
Well, on this the first quiz day of 2022, I scored yet another victory over political journalist John Rentoul, who managed only a pitiful 2/10. Hard to believe that he scored only 2 out of those 10 questions. Still, there it is, and I do always commend his honesty (re. the quiz results); perhaps he was hung-over after celebrating the knighthood given to his idol, Blair.
As for me, I scored 7/10. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 4, and 8.
Andrew Windsor? Give up his titles? He will never do that voluntarily. After all, without being a “prince” etc, without the titles, Andrew would just be a complete nobody, unlike the other royals…oh, no…wait…
Ha ha! I recall seeing a road in Crystal Palace once and long ago— Jews Walk. I have no idea whether that has fallen foul of the “woke” tsunami.
Ah…looking at the wonderful Internet, it seems not:
“...it is generally agreed that it came from David Ximenes, who planted the road with elms. It was replanted with chestnut trees in the 1850s. David Ximenes was son of Sir Moses Ximenes, scion of an old Spanish Jewish family that had fled from the Inquisition. Like Disraeli’s father, Sir Moses disagreed with the committee of Bevis Marks synagogue and converted to Christianity. Like Disraeli, David Ximenes was still regarded as Jewish by the public, hence the road’s name.” See https://sydenham.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=432.
“As a postscript to the above. David Ximenes lived at Sheenewood, a large house in Westwood Hill opposite Jews Walk. The elm tree walk would have led to his front door, so to speak.“
“Jews Walk was named after two Jewish brothers who lived in Westwood, a large house on the edge of Sydenham Common, where the Shenewood (my preferred spelling, as it is named after a wood owned by Shene Priory) estate now stands. In about 1769 the brothers obtained permission from Lord Dartmouth, the Lord of the Manor, to create a tree-lined walk across the common from what is now Kirkdale to their house. This walk became known as “the Jews’ walk”. When Sydenham Common was enclosed in the early 19th century the name was retained. By at least 1854 the residents of Jews Walk felt that such a name was not appropriate (undertones of anti-Semitism) and they began referring to the street as “The Grove”. In 1878 the Metropolitan Board of Works, a London-wide body amongst whose responsibilities was making sense of house numbers and street names, was petitioned to officially rename Jews Walk to “The Grove”. To their credit the MBW refused to change the name and “Jews Walk”, one of the oldest street-names in Sydenham, survived. However, the Congregational Church continued to be known as the Church in the Grove.” [Sydenham Town Forum]
Since 1989 (the first year of the present 33-year cycle), the transnational conspiracy often called the New World Order or “NWO” (internationally), and Zionist Occupation Government or “ZOG” in terms of the domestic politics of various countries, has gradually disempowered the Arabs and other Muslims, while strengthening the hand of the Israeli state and (to use an old term) “World Jewry”.
Indeed, the very public proclamation of the New World Order, in early 1990, in a speech by President Bush (senior), was the prelude to the first war against Iraq, more than a decade before his son, George W. Bush, continued the assault by invading Iraq itself. The 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in Manhattan was the casus belli for war with Iraq, despite Iraq (and Iran) having apparently known nothing of it.
Israel’s main enemies in geopolitical terms, meaning Iraq, Syria, Egypt, were gradually destabilized and removed from the board, from 1989 to 2021, thus leaving Israel pre-eminent in the region.
Smaller and generally anti-Israel states were dealt with in more or less the same way: Libya, Tunisia, Yemen.
That leaves Iran as the only obstacle to Israel’s regional supremacy. Iran’s ancient history and large (and —overall— not-badly-educated) population, its oil, its industrial capacity, all make Iran a target for Israel and “World Jewry”.
It cannot be long before Israel attacks Iran with tacit or overt US support. Suitable excuses will no doubt be produced, anything from Iran’s nuclear programme to cartoons mocking the so-called “holocaust” farrago.
Once Iran is attacked and reduced (in strategic areas) to rubble, there will be a campaign to “overthrow the regime” (as in Iraq, Syria, Ukraine etc), and maybe foment a civil war.
The result, if the Israeli, American, and other Jews are successful, will be (in effect) a Greater Israel. The venal Gulf Arabs have already surrendered to Israel and its wider Jewish diaspora. Diplomatic relations, and airline flights, between Dubai and Israel, Bahrain and Israel.
No surprise to me. The Gulf Arabs worship the “Money Power”, and have little other (culture, identity, even religion) to oppose such worship. Saudi Arabia has made no public statement, but is on the same page.
Israel does not have to immediately plant its flag of conquest over the capitals of the region. Slow, gradual annexation by commerce and the Jewish-American cultural influence will do the job.
Can Iran do anything to stop the above-delineated process? I wonder.
Sabrina Miller is the Jewish Zionist girl student who was at least the figurehead behind the Israel-lobby campaign to have anti-Israel academic, Professor David Miller, sacked from Bristol University, a campaign which was successful (though the Professor is now taking legal action).
Sabrina Miller’s piece about bestiality betrays no understanding about the decent treatment of animals. As a Jewish individual, she quite likely supports (though I have no direct information that she does) the cruel Jewish practice of kosher (kashrut) slaughter of animals. If so, that is, again, hardly surprising.
I should add that she seems to imply, in that piece, that she herself might favour vegetarianism. If so, a positive tick as far as that goes.
There is an intensifying repression of free speech in the UK, particularly when it comes to any mention of Jews that is not laudatory, so I suppose that I must not draw too wide a set of conclusions from the above…
It is not November yet. It is true, though, that poppy-wearing is dying out.
Remembrance Day, or as my maternal grandmother [1900-1988] always called it, in the old way, Armistice Day, was a creation of the First World War and its aftermath, kept going after 1945.
There are now no British people alive who were alive during that first terrible conflict, and none who were much more than children during the second.
There is, of course, another aspect, in that the burgeoning population of blacks, browns, and those of mixed race etc have no real organic connection to England or Britain, so naturally feel no nostalgic emotional need to wear a poppy.
I have now seen part of the first episode, about 20 minutes. I do not usually have the patience to keep watching after a poor start.
Pretty poor; in fact worse (as entertainment) than I had expected. I may see some more at some future time, but I doubt it.
Various critics, including some Jews, have apparently not been hugely impressed by the plot, let alone the details.
I should imagine that the series will sink without trace.

Greta Nut (again)
I made the mistake of switching on the car radio this afternoon. The once-interesting (long ago) PM show. 10 minutes was enough. “Covid” nonsense, “COP26” nonsense, and little else. Turns out that Greta Nut has been interviewed (again?) by Andrew Marr.
Incredible. What other poorly-educated, mentally-afflicted teenager (who has actually done nothing anyway) gets respectfully interviewed by someone who is (rightly or wrongly) a major msm current affairs bod? Why should anyone be interested in what Greta Nut thinks about US Government policy? PM presenter Evan Davis then referred to her as “Greta”. She thus joins the select few known universally by first name, such as “Boris”, “Fidel”, “Jesus” etc.
This is a farce, but of course is just part of the propaganda campaign internationally. “Greta” has no more part to play, of her own, than does a ventriloquist’s dummy.
I recall having a 45 rpm disc of that in 1971. The TV series had been on not long before.
I have not watched much of the Budget coverage. Talking heads and/or “journalists” (System propagandists) yapping ignorantly and, all the while, smug MP or ex-MP freeloaders (such as David Gauke) seen on Sky TV or BBC talking about “wasting government money” etc (when Gauke himself —among many many others— claimed for everything he could, including tacky furnishings, TV sets, luxury hotel stays etc).
What a bunch of monkeys!
This Government has, of course “wasted money” (UK’s economic resources): £37 BILLION on the ludicrous “test and trace” nonsense alone, headed by incompetent crony Dido Harding. Something that was not even necessary in the first place. That’s more than the projected cost of even the HS2 vanity-rail white elephant.
Imagine what other could have been done with £37BN. Improving the whole rail infrastructure of the country. New hospitals. Libraries, or education generally (I mean real education, not warehousing children in schools, “taught” by ignorant teachers —very often— while the parents work, or jump through bureaucratic hoops).
£37BN works out at around £1,000 for every working-age adult in the UK. In other words, the Treasury could just have given every person in the UK about £1,000, with better results socially and economically.
To put it another way, the most expensive aircraft carrier ever built, the USS Ford, cost about £9 Billion in pounds sterling, so the UK could have had (disregarding running costs) four like that, instead of the useless, pointless, “test and trace” fiasco. Or might have had built about 37 smaller warships.
When you see that part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer, “Boris”, posing as Prime Minister (forget Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, and the other clowns), you know that the UK political system is terminally sick.
“Criticized“? Yes, but we have seen in recent years what frightens the corrupt and the conspirators, and it is not being “criticized” in official reports.
The “Thalidomide” of our times?
Yesterday, the hugely ignorant Daily Mirror scribbler, Susie Boniface, aka “the Fleet Street Fox” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susie_Boniface] suggested, in a Mirror opinion piece, that “anti-vaxx” protesters should be imprisoned, and generally treated as terrorists. From where did that come? At any rate, an interesting straw in the wind as we approach 2022, the most significant year since 1989 (and, previously, 1956 and 1923). 33-year cycle.
How long before anyone questioning the System narrative and System policies is considered to be a “social terrorist” or “enabler”? Anyone who questions the “panicdemic” narrative. Anyone who opposes the cross-Channel or other migration-invasion. Anyone who questions the power or influence of the Jewish lobby. Anyone seeking a better society. Others…
You can see already the outline of what is taking shape. Look at the Online Harms Bill. Even less free speech than now exists. The Jewish (Zionist) lobby is behind much of the repression.
I wonder what our society will be like in a couple of hundred years if it continues on its present trajectory?

Alarming that the most powerful military-destructive machine in the world is now controlled, at least notionally, by someone who appears to be a confused, semi-demented, and possibly incontinent person, who may or may not be some kind of child abuser. One can only hope that, if Biden tries to reprise Hilary’s idea, and launch a third world war against Russia (or China), that there is some American version of a chekist standing quietly behind him, pistol always ready to administer a quick coup de grace…
Exactly. UK streets are less safe year on year, but the repression of opinion, including online opinion, is intensifying with every passing year.
As the tweeter says, “wealthy“…perhaps in fact not “beyond the dreams of avarice” (let’s not set the bar too low!) but probably worth a couple of million anyway, including the detached house in a pleasant neighbourhood etc.
“It was not painful; didn’t hurt…” Obviously not sufficiently deterred…
What gives the idiots the right to stop other people moving freely? Some weird idea that their actions will force Government to make more house insulation mandatory, or to pay for that? The protesters’ whole premise is nonsense. There is obviously a hidden agenda here, but protesters such as that retired doctor are merely pawns in someone else’s game.
Too many people are waking up. Bring on the talking heads and scribblers such as Susie Boniface, Fleet Street Fox, to call for the imprisonment of dissidents.
Note the police robots standing behind the “protester” (para-terrorist), not stopping him, not arresting him, nor even talking to him; in fact, looking “as if” they are protecting him…
In fact, the police car in that picture is also blocking the road.
Come to think of it, I have seen nothing from Susie Boniface, “Fleet Street Fox”, about treating “Insulate Britain” or Extinction Rebellion as “terrorists”. She may perhaps have done so (I tend to avoid reading her ignorant drivel), but I have anyway not seen it.
I remember watching this, as a boy of 14-15, in black and white (it was made in colour but I had my own huge and ancient b&w TV, with wooden case, and made, I should think, in the 1950s).
Looking at what little is on YouTube, and what (also not much) I can now recall, it is interesting to see the differences between the 1971 view of the near future (The Guardians was set in the 1980s) and what actually happened in the 1980s and on to 2021, 50 years after the 13 episodes of the series were shown.
There may have been those, in the early 1980s, amid the Miners’ Strike etc, who found parallels (the early paramilitarization of some police, and the use of SAS soldiers dressed as police).
Looking back now, one still finds parallels, but also great differences. The first is the relative quiescence of the public now. No, or very few, violent demonstrations, few big marches (and even fewer violent ones) compared to the 1970s.
Now, we have the Internet, and all its issues. That was not a factor, for the public, until the mid-1990s at earliest. The authorities have far wider powers in practice now, and use them.
In 1971, the “Guardian” force was seen as paramilitary, but in 2021 the forces of repression use plainclothes operatives (mostly), and not decrees (as such) but “laws” nodded through by a rubberstamp Parliament— look at the Online Harms Bill being put through Parliament right now, and with no resistance at all from a useless “Opposition” led by a Jewish-lobby puppet.
Also, 1971 people would not have taken seriously the idea that a virus which (supposedly) kills about 1 in 1,000 of the population would enable the UK Government to impose wide-ranging curbs on the most basic civil liberties (eg freedom to travel —even by car— in 2020); or that the kind of people who were most likely to resist actively in 1971 would become, in 2021, virtue-signalling “we’re good citizens, we are” serfs.

As I have blogged previously, we are rapidly approaching the very significant year 2022, 33 years after the last such year (1989). It will be recalled that, in 1989, several trends ceased to be a main part of the “furniture” or “structure” of the world: notably, socialism in various guises, and the strength of the Arab/Muslim oil-rich bloc. Likewise, other trends stepped up: the New World Order, in particular.
Now we see, not only in the UK but worldwide, a push by the transnational “conspiracy” to force a biosecurity police state on the population(s): the facemask nonsense, the largely-ineffective vaccines (with “need” for constant monitoring, testing, and tracking of the population); the shutting down of electricity supplies, deliberately-engineered food shortages etc.
On Twitter, many of the Twitter-twits blame Brexit for the above. How can that be so, when countries such as Norway, Australia etc are affected as badly or worse than the UK? Brexit was badly-mishandled, admittedly. What else could be expected, with part-Jew chancer “Boris” as Prime Minister, and a “Cabinet of Clowns” as supporting cast?
The 1989-2022 agenda of the NWO was derailed by two main opposed-to-NWO/ZOG trends: the resurgence of Russia (however flawed that resurgence) under Putin from 1998 (Prime Minister from 1999), and the rise of Islamism.
The upcoming 2022-2055 Zeitgeist is also being seized by the NWO/ZOG cabals, but may be derailed, or partly-so, by opposed forces or trends which cannot be exactly predicted. Perhaps by, in part, the resurgence in Europe of social-nationalism,. Certainly that has been predicted by at least one former Chief of SIS (MI6).
No years can be without a future. If the spiritually-correct future is absent, an evil future will fill the void. Which of the two takes the leading role during 2022-2055 is very important for the future of Europe in particular.
That happened during the Miners’ Strike of the 1980s (Army personnel in police uniforms).

Nick Griffin, Mark Collett, and Patriotic Alternative
I have never met either of the above individuals. Moreover, I do not “support” either, as such, and I do not oppose either, as such. Nick Griffin did well to turn the BNP into a machine capable of at least winning a few EU and local election seats prior to 2010. As for Mark Collett, I like what little I see online about Patriotic Alternative, inasmuch as they are at least doing things on the ground, even if those activities are only going on hikes and putting up banners at various places.
It is hard for an outsider like me to come to any firm view as to whether one or the other is more or less worthy or meritorious. I cannot think that either of those sides or groups is “what Britain needs”, as such, but “all roads lead to Rome” is, I suppose, my basic attitude.
It will take more than opposition to the “panicdemic” to make me like Alex Jones, but his main point is worthwhile.
Interesting to note that Jones’s type of free speech would not be permitted in the UK: OFCOM would “unperson” him at once. In fact, Jones would probably end up getting prosecuted on some bs Mickey Mouse charge or other.
The word “elected” should also have been in quotation marks. The whole system is rigged.
The latest msm “celebrity” puppet of NWO/ZOG, following in the footsteps of so many others, from Michael Jackson to Elton John.
People generally tend to think of Sovietism as having come into being purely under conditions of political violence. Much of its consolidation in the early years, however, took place under what were basically conditions of near-chaos. Rudolf Steiner referred, in 1918 or 1919, to the “impossible social conditions” in Russia (it did not become the Soviet Union until 1923 —officially, 22 December 1922—; the 33-year cycle of world politics and society, again).
What conditions were “impossible?” Shortages caused by official policy, weird laws, “rules”, “advice” etc. People getting sacked, quarantined, arrested for crazy small things, or because their faces did not fit in the New Order, or because they were “former people” who remembered that things had once been mainly better. Also, gradually more severe restrictions on movement, particularly travel outside the country.
Does any of this seem familiar? Yes, the old “socialism”, Marxism-Leninism, even social democracy, started to disappear rather fast after 1989 (again, that 33-year cycle), but the essentials are there, meaning especially the lunacy that becomes dogma, with harsh enforcement of crazy “rules”, supposed “laws” etc. Look at what has happened in the UK and in many other countries in 2020-2021.
The facemask nonsense, the arbitrary “rule of six”, “2 metres social distancing”, the absurd enforcement of those and other crazy “rules” and the “advice” (whims) of idiotic ministers etc, enforced by dim and/or brainwashed police. Arrests of people doing perfectly ordinary things such as walking in the country, sitting on park benches, sunbathing on beaches, going for a recreational car or bike ride outside the local area. Oh, and don’t forget the socially-mandated “clapathon”, idiots clapping on command outside their houses, notionally “for the NHS”, which NHS was pared back to a kind of skeleton service in reality.
All underpinned by a huge propaganda “fear campaign” in the msm.
It is hard to people now to understand how the Russian Revolution gradually became a total police state. Why did more people not resist? Why did many people comply, and even support the embedded nonsense? These things are not easy to spot whe they are happening. Look around you.
I am not just talking about the “Covid-19” situation. The pushing of the “Black LIves Matter” nonsense too: every ad with blacks in it, or with the multikulti “family” (often a white woman, often blonde, and a black man as husband figure). The same in dramas, “soaps” etc. Even historical dramas, like the recent one showing Ann Boleyn as a black woman!
None of this is a kind of “accident”. People, and not only in the UK, are being played like balalaikas, and most have no idea about it.
…and not the migration-invasion, of course…

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…
