Modest 6/10 this week, same as political journalist John Rentoul, who also scored 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 4, 6, and 10.
So down the line, could it be Russia+most of Europe+ (?) even the UK v. both the USA and China? Not an easy situation for Russia, not easy for Europe, but it could lay the foundation for a later Eurasian superstate.
I have written a bit about prepping in the UK context. The blog posts can be found using the search box on this blog, or by clicking on one of the list of subjects (on the left of the screen).
“You carry in your blood the holy inheritance of your fathers and forefathers. You do not know those who have vanished in endless ranks into the darkness of the past. But they all live in you and walk in your blood upon the earth that consumed them in battle and toil and in which their bodies have long decayed.
Your blood is therefore something holy. In it your parents gave you not only a body, but your nature. To deny your blood is to deny yourself. No one can change it. But each decides to grow the good that one has inherited and suppress the bad. Each is also given will and courage.
You do not have only the right, but also the duty to pass your blood on to your children, for you are a member of the chain of generations that reaches from the past into eternity, and this link of the chain that you represent must do its part so that the chain is never broken.
But if your blood has traits that will make your children unhappy and burdens to the state, then you have the heroic duty to be the last. The blood is the carrier of life. You carry in it the secret of creation itself. Your blood is holy, for in it God’s will lives.” [SS Verlag: material for instruction of the Hitlerjugend]
Multiply that by about £20,000 per person (including NHS services, educational services, legal and police costs etc), a modest supposition, and the cost exceeds £32 billion per year…
How polite we British still are! Try that in, say, Russia or France and see what happens! It would have been amusing to see the cars shown here roll slowly towards the virtue-signallers (who mostly no doubt live comfortable easy lives with their parents in some suburban or semi-rural enclaves), and then just keep on going…
A Victorian phrenologist would have a field day with Sajid Javid’s head.
Late tweets seen
Such goblins and gargoyles purport to rule over us…
The test for, or touchstone of, whether these msm outlets are for “free speech” or not is whether certain groups can be mentioned, and their behaviour questioned. Above all, Jews and their perceived behaviour, meaning both on the individual basis, and on the group or communal basis.
If a “free speech” outlet, or pressure group, or political party, treats the so-called “JQ” (Jewish Question) as taboo, then it can be binned as worthless. Over to you, Talk Radio! Over to you, Jeremy Kyle!
For example, we have recently seen the emergence of the Free Speech Union. It has a Twitter account, and well-known figures from the “controlled opposition” lead it or belong to it, but the FSU has never once, not one single time, supported the freedom of expression of, say, Alison Chabloz (imprisoned for taking part in an Internet “radio” podcast discussion which mentioned Jews), or Jez Turner (imprisoned for making a speech in Whitehall which mentioned Jews) etc.
Not one “human rights” barrister, or “free speech” talking head, or newspaper scribbler, supported me by word or deed. Not one was brave enough to do so. Useless venal people.
The following exchange on Twitter illustrates the point about what is or is not free speech:
One still sees, on Twitter (often the online home of the ignorant) the contention that “you have free speech but are not free from the consequences of your free speech“.
The above frankly moronic assertion is not uncommonly seen on Twitter. Even those who certainly should know better (eg the odd law lecturer from a “McUniversity”) are seen to come out with the assertion as if it were a judgment of Solomon.
Naturally, a moment’s thought makes it clear that, if you “have free speech but not freedom from consequences“, then Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, even Pol Pot’s Cambodia, or North Korea, had “free speech”. You can say whatever you like, but you may then end up in the “GULAG Archipelago”, or the Cambodian “Killing Fields”.
Not a very plausible assertion.
There should be unlimited free speech on social, historical, and political questions, no matter whether this or that ethnic or religious group feels offended. In fact, it is usually only a tiny part of any minority ethnic or religious group that is disposed to find “offence” or indeed to seek it out.
An obvious example of the above is the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”, which purports to represent Jewish-Zionist interests in the UK, yet in fact is a tiny minority of a minority. Somewhere well below 500 members. Its few public demonstrations since it started in 2014 have been attended by 50 to 100 individuals, despite its friends in the msm inflating the figures to hundreds and, in one egregious instance, inflating an attendance of about a hundred or so to “thousands”!
Incidentally, there are about 250,000 Jews in the UK, perhaps more, so the “CAA” membership, thought to be a few hundred at most, is representative of only one UK-based Jew out of about every 1,000 or 2,000.
The same transnational conspiracy, but taking different forms in various countries.
Don’t people understand? Once you set up a system like that, and start incarcerating people on spurious “health” grounds, there is no going back. The system can be repurposed, the camps can be repurposed, at any time. “Health”, “Covid-19”, “spreading fake news”, “wrong attitudes”, “racist”, “anti-Semitic”, “harmful to public order” etc…
At what point does a rubbish bin become a powder keg?
Jew, of course…

As I have mentioned before in the blog, those whom I knew in the mid/late 1970s and afterwards, and who used cannabis, all more or less dropped out of society, though most were sufficiently insulated by money not to fall to the bottom of society. They were mostly able to find a niche here or there, or marry into —at least some— money…
I myself was never a smoker of any kind of cigarettes, though I did enjoy Havana cigars when I had a girlfriend who used to bring me some quite often from various places, via duty-free shops. 1980s.
Thank God for that. Here’s hoping all will now go well.
Again, quite right.
More accurately, with most of the disadvantages of a “Communist” (socialist) system, but few of the benefits.
A sharply cunning but basically simplistic woman. One thing she did have, though, which the present government of clowns entirely lacks— decisiveness (and executive ability).
“Miliband”. Once again…
Every. Single. Time.
As I echoed in the anecdote about Afghanistan in yesterday’s blog post.
Happened to see a tweet about the most recent Extinction Rebellion demonstrations (or should that be “tantrums”?):
I would not in general be much on the same page as Frank Furedi, or indeed radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer, whom I had to set straight once or twice when I had a Twitter account (a few malicious Jews managed to have me expelled in 2018), but “there is no religion higher than truth”, as they say…
Socio-political hypocrisy: there’s a lot of it about. Not that the phenomenon is new. For decades, there have been the pro-immigration and “refugees welcome” idiots and virtue-signallers; more often than not they live in leafy suburban areas where the effects of the UK migration-invasion have been muted, at least on the surface.
I myself recall a girlfriend of the 1980s who once said to me (we were certainly not ideologically completely compatible!) that the British people who did not want mass immigration were mostly those who did not like to see council houses going to immigrants instead of to them! A neat British way of bringing social snobbery into the discussion (something that we saw also in recent years in relation to Brexit: the Remainer mythus that pro-Brexit people were little more than British hillbillies).
Easy for a woman whose father, upon her return from living in a foreign capital, simply bought her a London house outright as a present, who got paid far more for occasional or part-time work than most people did for working full-time, and who also had considerable inheritance expectations, to express scarcely-veiled contempt for the poorer section of the British population.
She simply did not see that many poorer British people were and are angered by the way alien imports take British social housing. Not everyone can be housed just by asking their father to buy them a house!
Just yesterday it came to light that central government is helping local councils buy “large houses” so that Afghan families with 10 or 12 members can live in them. Most of those large houses will be in the more expensive neighbourhoods as well, so British people are going to be doubly cheated.
The British people will also end up working, and being taxed, so that the Afghans (and the rest) can live parasitically upon the Brits. The Afghans will mostly not even speak English, will mostly have no skills or qualifications, but will have (according to studies) a far lower average I.Q. than the British, and so will be just a drag or a millstone round the necks of the people of this country.

Late afternoon music
Reminiscent of Repin’s painting, The Reply of the Zaporozhie Cossacks to the Sultan of Constantinople
I hope that he, and all the animals, make it. They should be given priority.
How to characterize the Extinction Rebellion nonsense and demonstrations? “Woodstock with worry”?
The resistance movemet against the “panicdemic” is mutating into a resistance against other moves made by the international conspiracy.
In the recent Alison Chabloz appeal, the Crown Prosecution Service applied for an absurdly badly-drafted (well, is it a surprise? “Pay peanuts, get monkeys”) Criminal Behaviour Order against Alison. The judge apparently treated that with the contempt it deserved, and refused to make such an order. No doubt the application was suggested in some way by the malicious Jew-Zionists who are behind the whole persecution (and prosecutions) of Alison Chabloz.
