Parliament, both Commons and (ludicrous) “Lords”, is now full of trash; a situation which has steadily worsened since 1989. We are, incredibly, in a crazy world where the likes of Jess Phillips and Lisa Nandy are spoken of as potential Labour leaders, and where a part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer and self-promoter has somehow become leader of the misnamed “Conservative” Party.

Further down the food chain we have seen, on the Labour side, such as Claudia Webbe and now-binned Fiona Onasanya: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/21/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-fiona-onasanya-story/.

What about the Lords? Well, so many examples…

The mother of the murdered black boy, Stephen Lawrence, and by reason of that, now sits in our upper legislative chamber, as does Michelle Mone, a woman who, off the back of an eventually-insolvent bra company, presented herself to cretinous David Cameron-Levita as a great success story. Now “Baroness Mone”. Just a couple of examples. There are many others, such as half-Jew, half-black ignoramus, “Baroness” Oona King, one-time MP, whose autobiography is truly cringeworthy. Sadly, my review on Amazon (along with all my other reviews) is no longer available by reason of Jewish-lobby whining against me.

Parliament is now, like much of Britain, a dustbin.

Incredible. Hard to believe how a part of a simple straw basket, maybe 1,500 or so years old, can bring the past to life.

Well, either my brain is wired differently from those of the majority, or that theory does not work, because I came up with “potato”, which is not the expected answer…

He might have been at home in the Britain of 2021. Still, I should not be too harsh in judging the Cardinal. After all, he shares his “Sun sign” (Virgo) with me, and is thus —as far as I know— one of the relatively few Virgoan rulers (he was, in effect, a ruler) in history, Elizabeth I of England being another.

On a superficial look, extreme, but then look again at what is actually happening, not only in Greek (South) Cyprus but in Australia, France, Canada etc. An attempt by the State to deny the most basic services to those who refuse the vaccine(s). Even in the UK, there are now difficulties in accessing medical (NHS) services if the patient is not vaccinated. Travel? Worse.

This could be an early “dry run” of what will later appear in world history as the wraparound “mark of the Beast” state, as foretold in Revelation.

Seriously.

Haushofer’s theory does work, however, if Central Asia is used merely as the notional centrepoint of a Eurasian superstate comprised of Northern and Central Europe, Scandinavia, Finland, Russia/Siberia, and the more northerly of the other Russophone regions, notably Kazakhstan.

Still, while not being terribly interested in the topic of rock and roll, I daresay that the fame of Eric Clapton will long outlive that of Mark Kermode.

I have never met either of the above people, am not hugely interested in either, and am not (as such) biased in favour of either, though in the interests of “transparency” I suppose that I should add that, in the 1990s, I did know someone who had been friendly with Clapton and his Italian then girlfriend.

Alison Chabloz

Usually-reliable sources report that, though still incarcerated at Bronzefield Prison (near Heathrow), Alison is in excellent spirits.

Alison has apparently just been transferred to a different wing of the prison. She has a cell of her own, which contains, inter alia, a new mattress and a television which receives 30 channels, as well as all UK radio stations.

Alison’s cell door remains open all day, she can come and go as she pleases, and can shower, or go out for fresh air, whenever she wants.

One amusing point: it seems that a prisoner recognized Alison from last year and that, as a result, Alison was introduced to a number of other prisoners, who asked her to perform her songs. This resulted in what perhaps could be described as a general “sing-song”, the prisoners singing along with Alison. Pity that it could not have been filmed and distributed on social media. That would have made “you know who” (((s))) fume!

In other Alison Chabloz news, her upcoming trial has been deferred to a later date. It had been set down for today, 1 September 2021, with a time estimate of one day. That date was vacated recently. Now it seems that the trial will be held on a later date, if the matter proceeds at all.

Better idea than saving a statue— get rid of those individuals, groups, and types who want to destroy our history, race and culture, and are working towards our annihilation.

37,000+?! How many “interpreters” etc did the UK have in Afghanistan? This is just more migration-invasion. I reluctantly agree to the evacuation of a relative few ex-collaborators and their families, on the ground of honour and loyalty (they could perhaps be funded to make a fresh start outside the UK, and outside Europe, in a more suitable region and jurisdiction), but not to this nonsense.

On the wider point, the Western allies have deserted many of those who worked with them in Afghanistan. The USA, as main component in the occupation, has shown itself to be unreliable and, indeed, disloyal. A matter which may prove to be a strategic error of large proportions.

This needs to become the norm in the UK as well.

Well, this week I scored only 4/10, though still beat political journalist John Rentoul, who only managed 2/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 10. On question 7, I came very close (“but no cigar”); and on question 5, which I really knew in the back of my mind, could not quite bring it to consciousness, so 4/10 it is.

Tweets seen

Tweeter “@socialist1959”, a typical-seeming Twitter-twit, ever-ready to display ersatz socio-political virtue.

This is why Labour is so washed-up, because on the one hand you have the now-in-control pro-Jew-Zionist element under Starmer (“we agree with 90% of what the Government is doing but it should be doing it better, and while both wearing a facemask and bending the knee to the blacks”), and on the other the mass of politically-correct box-tickers such as tweeter “@socialist1959”, who are no doubt pro-migration-invasion, “anti-racist”, pro the “refugees welcome” nonsense etc.

Neither main wing of Labour has much of a mass appeal, even when set against the present shambolic government headed by a part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer.

Please, people, no more about how, thanks to the UK’s supposedly excellent FCO (diplomatic staff), SIS (para-diplomatic and intelligence staff), and armed forces, “Britain punches above its weight”. It does not.

Claims of that sort have now been floodlit as completely hollow.

Britain now has little more than mirages. In place of a properly functioning Foreign Office, a box-ticking, virtue-signalling and bureaucratic culture which accomplishes almost nothing. In place of a properly-functioning secret service, fantasies of one (whether the fantasies of supposed past —Second World War and Cold War— “successes”, or the outright fantasies peddled in James Bond films and the like). In place of a properly-functioning army, navy, and air force etc, we have stripped-down, stripped-out skeleton forces unable to do jack **** most of the time (as witness the Kabul situation).

Kabul

Kabul is a city which I have never visited, in a country which I have never visited. I have only met a relatively few people who have actually been there (whether before its post-1978 troubles, during the years of Soviet occupation, or more recently, during the past 20 years of Western control or partial control).

I do not claim to know a great deal about Kabul. Thank God for the Internet and for (whatever its flaws) Wikipedia.

Kabul, a city with a 3,500-year history, and a population of 4.6 millions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabul.

For me, slightly unexpected. There again, msm focus has always been on a few locations; at present, the airport. Fact is, of course, that most of the nearly five million inhabitants are not at that airport but, probably, keeping their heads down and waiting to see what transpires.

Some tweets seen

That tweeter, who thinks that 200 suffering cats and dogs are just “stupid pets“, is a Zionist lecturer who, a number of years ago, made a demonstrably false documentary (I think shown on Channel 4) about the Treblinka site in Poland (critical youtube videos about which documentary have since been expunged from YouTube and Twitter by the Jewish-Zionist lobby).

The Japanese are said to have an answer as an alternative to “yes” and “no“: “mu“. This apparently means, “I do not agree with the assumption of your question“.

The bald question is too wide; all human lives, all animal lives. For me, some animal lives are worth more than some human lives.

That, though, is in no way the fault of Pen Farthing and his supporters; any fault lies with the British Government, and a UK bureaucracy incapable of doing its job properly.

Late thoughts about Pen Farthing and his critics

In my view, the supporters of Pen Farthing and the cats and dogs rescued are those who, in general, have their hearts in the right place. The critics and (if you like) “haters” of Pen Farthing seem to be mostly cruel, callous nobodies, often posing as great humanitarians (online Twitter-twit squad).

For example, look at the following tweet:

The other tweets of “@Jonny_Nowak33” show someone somewhere in the “Conservative”/Brexit Party ideological zone. A silly little person trying to be edgy.

I also saw tweets by some little wheelchair-bound autistic and mental afflict (whose name I cannot now find), one of which said simply, “Pen Farthing is a coward“. A man who served in the Royal Marines for decades, with final rank of sergeant. I do not claim that all Royal Marines are heroes, but I should doubt that many are cowards.

Twitter is now largely the comfort zone of the crazed, those with mental problems, and those without any real principles or ideology to speak of. Many are pathetic virtue-signallers, some are trying to make a impact on the other nuts who tweet.

Twitter is still of use as illustrative material (as used on my blog), but not as a serious ideas exchange. Also, the (often mentally-disturbed) “antifascist” idiots and/or Jew-Zionists have had most serious thinkers expelled from Twitter.

For me, from what I have read and seen in the past week (I had not known of him before that), Pen Farthing is someone who has been trying, against the odds, to help animals and people, and who has found himself up against large-scale situations, and large and uncaring organizations and agendas: US forces, a US government shamefully fleeing and leaving its allies in the lurch, Taliban barbarians, mass panic at a shambolic airport, a UK government trying to limit the domestic political fallout, and a UK mass media which both wants a story and is trying to give covering fire to a badly-prepared, chaotic UK government.

Maybe Pen Farthing did shout threats at a UK minister’s adviser. The bastard weasel probably deserved that, and maybe more.

The same goes for the UK governmental and diplomatic bureaucracy, which is near-useless. As for UK MPs and ministers, I doubt whether so many useless deadheads have ever been collected together at Westminster.

Alison Chabloz appeal hearing

Readers of the blog over recent days will have seen that there was a possibility that Alison Chabloz might have been made subject to a Criminal Behaviour Order, one both very wide in its ambit and very long in duration, and which would have prohibited her from talking, writing or singing about WW2 (!), the NSDAP, Jews, Israel, Zionism and the “holocaust” farrago, inter alia.

Usually-reliable sources had reported that such an Order had actually been made by the presiding and sentencing judge. Yesterday, however, it was reported that such an Order did not form part of the judge’s sentence.

Impeccable sources now report that, while application for such a clumsily-drafted Order was made (by prosecuting Counsel), the application was refused outright by the presiding judge.

It does leave unanswered the question of why the CPS (and, indeed, police) continue to allow themselves to be manipulated and used by the tiny and malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] “charity” (pressure group), whose leading members were exposed years ago in open court as pseudonymous harassers and trollers of a number of people (mostly women); Zionist supremacists who, when it suits their purposes, whine to social media organizations, the msm, the police and the courts that they are “victims” of “antisemites”.

Tweets seen

As blogged about yesterday, those who want to post cards, letters or books to Alison while she is incarcerated should send items to:

Alison Chabloz A6478EK, HMP Bronzefield, Woodthorpe Road, Ashford, Middlesex, TW15 3JZ.

The prisoner number (A6478EK) must always be included.

Books must be *new, *paperback, and preferably sent by commercial booksellers such as Abe Books (nb. Bronzefield does not accept any Amazon deliveries).

Money can also be sent, via the official system: see https://www.gov.uk/send-prisoner-money. With money sent, a prisoner can buy stamps, stationery, food etc. Also telephone credits.

Alison is likely to be a prisoner for the next 5-7 weeks, until some date in October, but she is also being subjected to a fresh trial on 1 September 2021 (((thanks to “the usual suspects”))). If that trial goes the wrong way, she may well be incarcerated for longer, though there seems to be a possibility that the trial will be deferred to a later date, or the proceedings simply discontinued.

Absolutely disgusting, of course. Yet you still get idiots on Twitter who think that a welfare state and open borders are able to co-exist.

Basically, the importation of 20,000 (and probably more) completely useless and mostly backward people. At least 20,000 houses and flats, that should go to British people, going to aliens.

The enemies of the future try to indoctrinate children at the earliest possible age.

If I were not personally involved (being English), I suppose I could sit back, drink a glass of Khvanchkara, and wait to see for how long the British people will tolerate this.

The police are a necessary evil in most societies. They have to be controlled closely, though, so as not to arrogate tyrannical powers to themselves. Look at the mindset of that New Zealand tweet. Here in the UK, too, the police have gradually become unpleasant blunt instruments of State dictatorship, Jewish-Zionist influence, and “woke” nonsense.

Contribute“? How? Even the few who will speak English have few or no useful skills. The UK has more than enough ethnic minority taxi drivers, the only job that (as with the Somalis) the men are likely to do, be able to do, or want to do. As for the women, most will not want to, and will be unequipped to, work. These incomers are the latest millstone around the British neck.

…and Churchill might now be able to add “and a host of Jewish scribblers will make careers and money out of fashioning a narrative according to which the British Empire “had” to (help) destroy the German Reich.” [see, for example, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Gilbert].

I have blogged about the new Australian “woke”, multikulti police state and biosecurity state in recent days and weeks. Nothing more to add to that, except to pose the question how “the lucky country”, with its white European population, freedom of expression, prosperity and strong national identity went so wrong so quickly. My answer? Corrupt politicians in the pocket of finance-capitalism and the Jew-Zionist lobby; a similarly venal msm; and mass immigration of non-Europeans, starting in the mid/late 1970s. Sad. Very sad.

As Lenin said, “worse will mean better”. As yet, probably only 5% of the British people support my views (unknowingly, at that), certainly not wholeheartedly, and another 30% would support me to some extent, if they were even aware of my views as my views, or indeed of my existence. The situation has not yet gone far enough, and is not yet bad enough in any way, to fully awaken national rebirth.

Perhaps, if talking about only the famous or well-known.

Diary Blog, 18 August 2021, including news about the re-sentencing of Alison Chabloz

Alison Chabloz re-sentencing

The re-sentencing of Alison Chabloz is set down for today. The re-sentencing has now been deferred twice (last Friday and this Monday) because material about Alison held by the probation people could not be released without the permission of undesignated “higher authority”, apparently. In the meantime, Alison has been in Bronzefield Prison, near Heathrow, for the past 4-5 days

All because of some remarks on an internet podcast about Jews, Zionism, “holocaust” fakery etc.

As far as the resentencing for the matter directly in question is concerned, the judge at Southwark Crown Court cannot hand down more than the maximum laid down by law, 6 months. That would in effect be 3 months actually in prison, and Alison has already served 9 weeks, has a 4-day credit for time wrongly served in 2020, and has now been remanded in custody for 5 days.

On the above premises, Alison would serve less than 2 weeks extra even if sentenced to “6 months”.

It occurs to me, though, that the court may find other ways of tacking on extra prison time, such as any finding that Alison was improperly let off from completing the “Unpaid Work Requirement” aka “community service” (forced/slave labour), which was part of her sentence from her yet earlier 2018 trial before Westminster Magistrates (for the heinous crime of mocking the “holy” Jewish Zionists and the “holocaust” farrago).

Alison did actually spend a few days in 2018 picking up litter in wet Derbyshire churchyards.

I was never, mainly, a criminal barrister, despite having done Crown Court and magistrates trials as Counsel, mainly in the London area in 1993-1995. Also, I have not practised at the Bar since 2008 (and, famously, or notoriously, was —wrongfully— disbarred in 2016). I therefore may be wrong about this, but I cannot see how the sentencing judge today can do anything about any incomplete slave labour from another case, and years ago.

More likely, the sentencing judge may be thinking about sentencing Alison to “slave labour” (community service labour) for this present matter. That would probably be more onerous to her than spending what amounts to, in practice, probably only about a week or so extra in prison, unpleasant though that may be (though information from a usually-reliable source says that she at least has had her own modern cell, and a television, over the past 4-5 days spent in Bronzefield Prison).

What was that phrase, about those who would “break a butterfly upon a wheel”?…

As I reported yesterday, Alison has also now been made subject to an Order, pursuant to a 2014 piece of police-state legislation, purporting to ban her from making any public —or even, it seems, private— mention of Jews, Zionists, Zionism, Israel, or the “holocaust” farrago. The Order even covers mention of WW2, and even any member of the NSDAP! For 3 years (the maximum duration permitted by the legislation). Draconian. She will be appealing that to the Administrative Court. The ambit of that Order is absurdly wide, in my view.

I shall relay news of the re-sentencing result when I have it, later in the day.

Stray thought

Looking down today’s list at Southwark Crown Court, I noticed that, out of 5 trials listed, only one defendant has a British (Welsh) first name and surname (if that means anything). The rest? 3 are obviously Muslim and the other something like Malay, or Thai, at a guess.

In fact, even that one “Welsh” name may not be really British (I do not know).

…and almost all such rapes in Sweden are committed by non-Europeans: Afghans, Somalis, whatever…

Alison Chabloz

Unconfirmed reports state that Alison Chabloz has now been re-sentenced at Southwark Crown Court.

If the said reports are accurate, the sentencing judge has trawled back through the non-custodial part of the sentence Alison received, not for the most recent conviction, but the earlier one, in 2018! That sentence included a suspended prison sentence, as well as several non-custodial aspects.

It seems that what today’s sentencing judge has done is decide, on the basis of probation reports from 2018 (which are disputed), that Alison has not completed certain aspects of that 2018 sentence (eg enough hours of “slave labour”); the judge has also given Alison (as expected) an increase in sentence from the 18 weeks ordered by the magistrates earlier in 2021.

The result is that Alison has been sentenced to a headline sentence of a total of 32 weeks of imprisonment, of which she must serve half, i.e. 16 weeks, minus the 9 weeks already served, making 7 weeks extra.

I do not know whether Alison will be credited with the 4 days she served in 2020 prior to her (in effect) successful appeal on an earlier matter, or the 5 days which she has now served on remand, while awaiting this sentencing hearing. Presumably so. All the same, that would still leave Alison in prison for at least five and a half weeks from today.

I do not know whether there will be an appeal on sentence to the Court of Appeal.

The one bright aspect of the re-sentence, assuming that the unconfirmed reports are correct, is that there will now be no Criminal Behaviour Order, apparently. It may be that reports from yesterday (from usually-reliable sources) referred to what the judge was considering rather than what he eventually ordered. The presiding judge today said that to impose such an Order would be “unjustifiable“. With respect to His Honour, I can only agree!

However, the judge “advised” Alison to steer clear of social media.

The malicious Jew-Zionist pressure group, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”], has admitted “pursuing” Alison Chabloz relentlessly “for years” (their words). The court might have taken that harrying and trolling into account, at least in mitigation, but obviously did not.

Some people, even on the social-nationalist and anti-Zionist side of the argument, have had their disputes with Alison Chabloz. There is, however, no disputing her courage.

Alison Chabloz— more detail on the re-sentence

Usually-reliable sources now report that Alison will be credited at least with the 5 days spent in custody on remand; she will therefore spend just over 6 weeks more in prison. No news as to the 4 other days, served in 2020.

More detail about how the sentencing judge today [H.H. Judge Beddoe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Beddoe] calculated his sentence: on the three charges wherewith Alison was convicted by magistrates earlier this year, 12 weeks each on the first two, consecutive, making 24 weeks. A further 12 weeks, but concurrent; then 8 weeks activated of the original 2018 suspended sentence, making 32 weeks in toto.

As noted earlier, that 32 weeks is then reduced by half, and then further reduced by the 9 weeks and 5 days Alison has already served, making about 6 weeks to be served, which, if she is credited with the other 4 days mentioned, might reduce the actual time to be served to about 5 and a half weeks.

It will be noted that, had the sentencing judge today not activated 8 weeks of the original 2018 suspended sentence, the total sentence today would have been 24 weeks, which would then have been reduced by half to 12 weeks, minus time served of 9 weeks, and also minus 5 days spent on remand in prison, which would have left Alison with no more than about 2 weeks to serve (less than two weeks if the extra 4 days were credited).

In other words, had the sentencing judge today not activated 8 weeks of the 2018 suspended sentence (an unexpected and remarkable decision), my previously-blogged calculations re. how much extra time Alison would have to serve would have been completely correct.

Further reports indicate that Alison is in good and defiant spirits despite the relatively harsh sentence. She is already working on a new song, this time about her various judges!

A final note, this time about the probation monkeys: on Monday, the probation “service” claimed that Alison had performed none of the “unpaid work requirement” (forced labour) from 2018. Today, when the reports were made available (the accuracy of which the presiding judge apparently criticized), it became clear that Alison had actually done 43 hours. Quite a difference. Administration is breaking down in the UK.

Write to Alison Chabloz

We should always support “the men (and women) behind the wire”. Alison is now in Bronzefield Prison. She would no doubt once again welcome cards, letters, books and small monetary gifts.

Her address is: Alison Chabloz A6478EK, HMP Bronzefield, Woodthorpe Road, Ashford, Middlesex, TW15 3JZ.

The prison number must always be included.

Addendum

I have just now received a report to the effect that the presiding and sentencing judge in Alison Chabloz’s case did actually make a Criminal Behaviour Order against her yesterday. So my blog was accurate after all. He must have changed his mind, i.e. thought better of it. A Crown Court judge is in fact entitled to amend his own sentence within 56 days of it having been passed.

As I blogged yesterday and today, the Order that was apparently made yesterday would have been eminently appealable, in that it was ludicrously wide in its ambit, and unreasonably harsh in its duration. Still, water under the bridge…”and no need to mention the war”!

For once, I agree with the Dunt scribbler.

“What does it say about us as a country…?” Well, let me see…that the UK is scarcely a country, let alone a nation, any more. Swamped by non-European immigrants who are breeding fast, exploited by finance-capitalists and others (often —though certainly not always— Jew-Zionists), ruled by a cabal of NWO/ZOG puppets and Friends of Israel zealots (many Jewish, part-Jewish, Pakistani, Indian etc), and with standards sliding in all areas. Oh, and a state with only small and shrinking military and naval forces.

The UK has been increasingly in a dependent position, via a vis the USA, since 1940. So many people in the UK, though, cling to the idea that the UK is still the world power it was in the times of Empire.

Meanwhile, “from the sublime to the ridiculous”, Rory Stewart, “the man who thought he could be king”, bleats about a few young Afghans going to Oxford University. Amid these possibly world-historic events!

At first, and briefly, I was rather impressed by Rory Stewart; about 2-3 years ago. Now, my view is that the UK dodged a bullet when Stewart failed to become leader of the Conservative Party, and that despite my never having had any time for Boris-idiot.

Brenton Tarrant [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christchurch_mosque_shootings] will be fuming (if he is allowed to see the news), but because he took action both premature and violent (resulting in a huge backlash from the State, and from much of the public of New Zealand), he is powerless.

A pro-Taliban tweet? Rather different from others seen:

Look at the eyes of those children. Palpable fear.

This is the fault of the US and its allies (notably the UK), which should have imposed a new form of society, even if that meant exterminating backward elements en masse. In fact, what was done was an attempt to control and “manage” Afghanistan, to just keep a lid on it, in the manner of the British policy in Northern Ireland from 1969-1997. Doesn’t work.

Now, or soon, it may be terrible in Afghanistan. We shall see. It does not look hopeful.

Reminiscent of the endgame in Saigon, 1975.

The sort of literate, measured TV report that was standard in the 1970s but looks incredibly good when compared to the sort of trash that the BBC, ITV, Sky etc put out today.

Well, at least he is decent enough to feel.

Appalling lack of intelligence” [Nick Ferrari on LBC radio]. Well, that’s SIS for you. A career opportunity for some of the British middle classes, but not much good when you come right down to it, and when you strip away the (hugely overblown) WW2 “successes”, the rather few Cold War successes (I suppose that Penkovsky was the numero uno), and the fantasies of spy fiction, such as Ian Fleming’s James Bond books and the subsequent films, not much is left, certainly not in the public domain.

Forget Philby. He was of little real interest (though that would not have been the case had he gone on to be Chief of the SIS).

The real SIS failures have not been its probably small number of traitorous staff but its actual intelligence failures, such as failure to predict the fall of the Shah, fall of the Soviet bloc, invasion of the Falklands etc. Actual uselessness.

Operations such as putting Gordievsky in a car boot and smuggling him to Finland were of rather small importance in the big scheme of things.

Mitrokhin? His material is of huge historical importance, but that is another matter. There may well have been other, still-confidential material, but whether that was so or not, he was a “walk-in”, and all SIS had to do was not reject his approach (and later excavate the bulk of his material from under his dacha). He was never cultivated or developed prior to his “recruitment” (if such be the bon mot); the initiative was his. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasili_Mitrokhin

Incidentally, Ian Fleming was far from being an “intelligence expert”: he was found a job (having been useless at everything beforehand) by his loaded banking family [Fleming’s Bank: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Fleming_%26_Co.] as the assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence, basically a male PA. He was given a courtesy rank, Lieutenant, then Lt. Commander. He was never a real naval (or intelligence) officer, neither was he given any training, whether naval or otherwise. Most if not all of the operations he planned during WW2 were failures or nullities. A play “intelligence officer”.

Almost right. The migration-invasion continues, reinforcing the non-European occupation of the cities. As for “MI6” (or “MI5”, for that matter…), forget it.

At what point will both (real) Swedes and British say “NO MORE!“?

So far, the Israelis (Jews) have interfered with British politics and society far more than have the barbarians of the Taliban or ISIS…shall we invade Israel (occupied Palestine) next?

At what point (again) will the “normies” wake up and see all that for what it is, i.e. socio-political conspiracy?

I wonder how much she and her family have ripped off?

As I have been blogging recently, the transition of Australia into a multikulti “biosecurity”, “woke” police state has been among the most surprising of the manifestations of the transnational conspiracy as we rush to the year 2022. What about New Zealand, as well?

The System parties in the UK are treacherous enemies, worthy of being destroyed.

Kabul is a city of 4.5M people. Some (I daresay) support the Taliban; the majority are probably waiting to see what will happen (and have little choice anyway). Only a few thousand (those who know that they face arrest and possibly death) are at the airport, scrambling to get onto evacuation flights.

…”and none dare call it conspiracy”…

Where Julian Assange has gone, others will go, now that the UK is becoming, slowly, gradually, a police state. Jez Turner of the now-defunct London Forum, for making a speech urging the deportation of Jews from England; Alison Chabloz, imprisoned for her socio-political remarks on an Internet “radio” discussion podcast; Graham Hart, recently sentenced to 32 months (!) for making some contentious remarks on an internet “radio” show he presented. And so on.

…as happened after Hungerford and Dunblane. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungerford_massacre; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunblane_massacre.

Alison Chabloz appeal

Report from sources usually reliable.

Readers of the blog will recall that, last Friday (13 August 2021), Alison Chabloz, having lost her appeal from the Westminster Mags, was (oddly) remanded in custody pending sentence today (Monday 16 August 2021) by the presiding judge, H.H. Judge Beddoe [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Beddoe].

The current situation is that Alison was “produced” in court today, but the Court is still having “difficulties” accessing Alison’s probation records, it having transpired on Friday last that “higher authority” would be required to allow access even to the judge (who is a Circuit judge)!

The net result of this bureaucratic nonsense was that, today, sentence could not be passed, because the judge wanted to see those probation records first. He has therefore once again remanded Alison in custody, this time until Wednesday!

As I blogged previously, Alison has already served about 9 weeks in prison as a result of the 18-week sentence given by the lower court, which means that any greater sentence given by this present court (to a maximum of 6 months) would, in reality (bearing in mind the usual release after half of the sentence is served) mean that Alison would have to do about another 2-3 weeks (she has several days “credit” for having served a few days in 2020 prior to a successful appeal).

Alison now has another 5 days served in Bronzefield Prison, so (if my calculations are accurate) even if she gets the maximum sentence on Wednesday, can probably expect release about 1-2 weeks later.

I am beginning to think that she will not get further imprisonment, or that perhaps some way will be found to “embugger” her otherwise, by adding on “community service” or some other onerous penalty.

We shall discover what “British justice” has to say on Wednesday.

“Elected” maybe, but before that he was selected, to represent the interests of “the usual suspects”…let’s just say “ZOG” and “NWO”…

Anecdotal but…in the early 1990s, a Sri Lankan solicitor, a woman, used to instruct a few members of my then chambers (including me, occasionally). Thick as two short planks, and seemed to think that paying Counsel was optional. In the end, she was about to be indicted for embezzlement when she killed herself. My point is that she was presumably part of the “educated elite” of Sri Lanka.

All the same, it may be that, after almost unimaginable destruction and bloodshed, the first generation of a post-Aryan super-race may one day (maybe as soon as 2050 or 2100) walk the depopulated and greening expanses of what were once the British urban and suburban areas.

That last tweet applies to the UK, too.

I visited a Tesco store about 6 miles from home today. About 50% or so of the shoppers were masked, including two virtue-signalling fat women who were slapping vast amounts of free Tesco hand gel all over their hands, arms etc at the entrance, while loudly talking about how they were protecting themselves and others. It was amusing to walk past them, unmasked, while almost laughing at them.

The present situation in Afghanistan is the “fault” of a number of parties or players: the backward Afghans themselves, the now-long-gone Soviet Union (for the 1979 invasion), the USA (for arming the Islamists, and for later invading Afghanistan along with NATO satraps —notably the UK—.

Learn a little about Afghanistan before coming to a view: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghanistan

While I do not favour the importation of large numbers of Afghans (or any other brown/black people) to the UK, for me it is simply a matter of honour and gratitude to extract the relative few who worked openly with UK forces as interpreters, along with their immediate families. To abandon them to the “mercy” of the Islamists would be, for me, not a decent option.

That, despite the fact that I always opposed the intervention.

As for the thousands, if not millions, particularly women, who face death or degradation under Taliban rule, there is nothing that can now be done for them, unless the “West” is willing to reoccupy the country and (this time) rule it as a straight occupying and colonial power. That at least would be both honest and effective. It will not happen.

Ekranoplan

It may be worth looking again at the Ekranoplan. Same goes for Zeppelins (lighter-than-air craft) and other “discarded” technological manifestations. The hovercraft was at first dismissed as a cranky idea; the inventor, Cockerell, received scant thanks or honour in his lifetime (though the UK government did eventually grant him a special payment).

Incidentally, that film includes footage from within Elista, in Kalmykia [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elista]. That was the point of furthest advance of German forces in the 1941-45 period: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elista#History.

Alison Chabloz

[Alison Chabloz]

Readers of the blog in recent days will have noted that the appeal of Alison Chabloz, from her magistrates’ court conviction and sentence of early 2021, failed on Friday. She was remanded, oddly, in custody, until sentencing (set down for tomorrow, Monday 16 August 2021).

I myself cannot see any proper reason why she was remanded in custody, despite the presiding judge saying that he was “minded” to increase the sentence handed down by the magistrates earlier in the year.

Alison has served about 9 weeks of an 18-week sentence, i.e. the usual proportion before having been released. If the sentence on Monday is custodial (there remains a small chance that it will not be), then the maximum would be 6 months, meaning that Alison would expect to be released halfway through, at 3 months.

Alison has now served over 2 months, has several days “credit” due her for time wrongfully served in 2020 (her appeal against that succeeded when the CPS declined to disclose the backstairs manipulations of the CAA fake charity and some political figures), and has now served another 3 days (inc. tomorrow). That being so, she should only have to “sit” (as the Russians say) for another 2-3 weeks, even if she is (ludicrous as that would be) given the maximum sentence of 6 months. That is assuming release halfway through the sentence.

Still, not very nice for Alison, who has only been convicted, this time, for expressing opinions on history and society, really. The UK is becoming a (gradually-expanding) police state.

If anyone wishes to support Alison at court tomorrow (Monday 16 August 2021), she is going to be produced in person for the sentence. I apprehend that several Jew-Zionists are intending to attend so that they can gloat. What more would one expect from such tasteless creatures?

The matter will come on “not before 1230” at Southwark Crown Court; presiding and sentencing judge: H.H. Judge Beddoe.

That does not mean that the matter will be heard at 1230. It might be 1230, it might be 1245. It might be later. Courts usually break for lunch at 1300 hrs until 1400 or even later (the High Court usually resumes at about 1430).

When I often appeared at the High Court, in the early/mid 1990s, matters were often set down “not before…”, often with a time estimate (anything from 5 minutes to several days).

So this matter might well only start after 1400 hrs. How long? Depends on what the judge wants to examine and what he wants to say.

The court is (quite short) walking distance from London Bridge, and slightly further (but still within easy walking distance) from London Bridge Underground.

I read somewhere that a high proportion of those who jump off the Golden Gate Bridge and survive (surprisingly, some do) realized, after they had jumped, that they wished that they had not jumped.

I wonder whether those who realized that they wanted to survive (and/or prayed?) and did survive, are just a random group, or did some (or even all?) survive because they wanted to and/or prayed? There is of course no way to tell whether prayer or desire make any difference.

As I have blogged many times, socialism in all forms died in and after 1989. That is why “socialist” or “social justice” types have so little to say now. They have become irrelevant.

We move now to 2022 and the following 33 years. Everything we now see on the international stage is connected to that: the “BLM” nonsense, the “panicdemic” measures and restrictions, much of the “climate change” stuff, the migration-invasion of Europe, the move to a “cashless” (totally-controlled) society. It’s all being co-ordinated.

Quite funny, in a sense, that even now, after 20 years of Johnson’s clowning, after 2 years of Boris-idiot posing as Prime Minister, msm scribblers and talking heads are still asking about, in effect his (non-existent) competence for the role…

Boris Johnson is totally incompetent, totally unfitted for any senior political role. A part-Jew clown, chancer, joker, gambler, without any principle or principles, withot any real ideas of any kind. A total political idiot. Need one really keep repeating this?

As for “British Intelligence”, it (like much of Britain) has lived off its hump and its mostly undeserved reputation for a very very long time, and if it failed to notify its Whitehall and Downing Street customers in advance of the fall of the Shah of Iran, or of the Argentine invasion of the Falklands, or of the fall of the Soviet “empire” and the collapse of world socialism (and add to that the consequences of toppling Gaddafi), then it certainly is not surprising that its assessment of Taliban strength, order of battle, and of the general situation in Afghanistan was equally useless (it seems, looking from outside).

“Intervention”, in order to create a new imperium in a given geopolitical space is one thing: Alexander, Rome, the British Empire, Germany seeking Lebensraum in 1939-42, the Soviet Union seeking Eastern/Central European hegemony after 1945; all of those had a strategy, a plan, and —crucially– “ideology”.

Then we have the US/”NATO” (NWO/ZOG) invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, and (attack on) Libya. No plan, no strategy, no idea of staying for the long-term and creating any new society, or colonizing those areas. Somewhere between pointless destruction and a geopolitical gesture.

Pathetic. The Western leaders of today are dwarfs in the geopolitical arena.

Globalist “conservative” UK-based Indian scribbler, Janan Ganesh, is of course quite wrong, inasmuch as there was no good reason to invade the backward pseudo-state of Afghanistan.

The fact is that the UK is becoming a police state. To be sure, a superficially “caring/sharing” communitarian one, which does not (yet) look much like, say, North Korea, Cuba, or even Belarus, but a police state all the same.

[the £20M Rolls-Royce Boat Tail]

It is all very well for “libertarians” to say that society or the State should not interfere with what people do with “their own” money, but there is a limit beyond which conspicuous consumption becomes a mockery of the less-affluent, and indeed becomes a mockery of society itself.

Is £20M “too much” to spend on a car? I think so, and not only because I fall short by…well, about £20M. I would frown on anyone spending even £2M on a car. £200,000? Well, I suppose that I might just be able to justify that, should I ever hit the Euromillions jackpot, but when one thinks how many people are suffering, even (?) in the UK because they need not even £200,000, but £20,000, or even £2,000 (maybe even as little as £200), to spend huge amounts —however defined— on a personal vehicle, seems very decadent to me.

Some people, such as heads of government, may need a special vehicle for their use, but that is a different matter. Hitler had specially-built Mercedes cars, while Lenin used at one time a Rolls-Royce built before the Revolution for a Russian aristocrat. That car was equipped with half-track and skis as well as wheels, to deal with the icy, snowy, or muddy Russian seasons.

There is a “British Government” in name, but it is really just a ZOG (Zionist Occupation Government) of the NWO (New World Order) matrix. Most of the Cabinet and other ministers of importance are Jews, part-Jews, and pro-Israel Indians and Pakistanis etc.

A circus or spectacle for the masses. Schauspiel.

There is always the small group in advance of the rest. The enlightened few during the Renaissance, the tiny group of Bolsheviks prior to 1917, the half-dozen people sitting in a beer cellar after hours in 1919, and who who invited Adolf Hitler to become “member no.7” of the DAP (that later became the NSDAP), the 2.6% of the German population that voted for Hitler in 1928, the miniscule number who were even marginally “dissident” in the Soviet Union and its satellites in the 1960s, 1970s, even 1980s.

The small vanguard leads the way. The mass later follows, if the vanguard is destined to rule.

Peter Hitchens has this exactly right, and ex-UKIP blowhard Roger Helmer has it not only wrong but shaking-my-head wrong. People like him were the reason UKIP failed.

As for the masses and their football faux-patriotism, they feel it, of course, just as their ancestors went enthusiastically to cheer both pre-20thC public hangings and the 1914 declaration of pointless war (as well as the similar though less fervently applauded event of 1939-45).

How well I recall scrambling on those grass-and-flower-full North Cornish stone walls when I was about 6 or 7 years old, in the early 1960s. Later, in 2002-2005, I lived in that part of the world.
