…and civil rights are fast-disappearing anyway under the multi-headed assault of “wokery”, the Jew-Zionist lobby, and such as the excrescences of the “Covid” madness.

I could design something far better than both, easily, and I am not even an architect.

The statement shown [update, next day: removed…], a statement of how a young Jew was indoctrinated at a young age by his mother into having a pathological fear of “anti-Semitism”, could have been used as an example of a typical such upbringing by the defence in the last Alison Chabloz trial…

Looking at those statements, it is clear why virtually all the Soviet spies in the USA in the 1930s and 1940s were Jews. Look at the atom bomb spies. Pretty much every one was a Jew (there were a few exceptions, such as Melita Norwood, and a few others were only half or part-Jew, e.g. Klaus Fuchs): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_spies#Notable_spies.

Welcome to the end of democracy

https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/welcome-to-the-end-of-democracy

Well worth reading. Which is why I am reposting long extracts here:

A rising tide of money and administrative power defines the rising autocracy.

As executive compensation reached the stratosphere in Big Tech and finance, small businesses face what the Harvard Business Review calls ‘an existential threat.’ Experts now warn that one third of small businesses, which comprise the majority of US companies and employ nearly half of all workers, could ultimately shut down for good. Hundreds of thousands have already disappeared, including nearly half of all black-owned businesses. Particularly damaged have been the small merchants along Main Street and those working for them, such as restaurant and hospitality workers.

Climate-change policies could nurture the new autocracy for a generation. As tech oligarchs and the financial establishment implement the Davos notion of a Great Reset, they will force a quick end to fossil fuels. There are huge opportunities for massive investment by super-rich companies and speculators in the ‘green economy,’ all made possible with tax breaks, loans and guaranteed sales to governmental units.

This promises to create a new crop of mega-billionaires like Elon Musk, today the world’s richest man. In the era of super-subsidies, a wannabe electric-vehicle maker like Rivian, which has negligible sales and consistent losses, can be valued higher than General Motors, which sells almost seven million cars and has $122 billion (£90 billion) in revenues each year. In Green Capitalism, the British Marxist James Heartfield labels this ‘austerity socialism’: reaping governmental edicts as opposed to actually producing real goods. Nice work if you can get it.

For the middle and working classes, however, the Great Reset may prove somewhat less promising — if not disastrous. For most people, notes Eric Heymann, a senior economist at Deutsche Bank Research, the rapid ‘green’ transition will mean ‘a noticeable loss of welfare and jobs.’ The conscious policy of degrowth as a means of forcibly reducing greenhouse gas emissions will require getting most people out of their cars, and forcing them to travel far less and to live in tiny apartments. Enforcement will be necessarily intrusive as well. Planners in the UK and elsewhere are pushing for family ‘carbon budgets.’ Add surveillance technology and we end up with something akin to China’s ‘social credit’ system, in which your right to free movement is subject to government approval.

The young are particularly threatened by these changes — younger people already face much harder prospects than any postwar generation. Few expect things to improve: across the higher-income countries, roughly two-thirds of people surveyed by Pew Research see a poorer future for the next generation. According to researchers at the Equality of Opportunity Project, about 90 per cent of those born in 1940 grew up to earn higher incomes than their parents. The same is true for only 50 per cent of those born in the 1980s. A recent study by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis warns that millennials are in danger of becoming a ‘lost generation’ in terms of wealth accumulation. To make matters worse, over half of all young people, in a survey of ten countries, think the world is doomed by climate change.

As housing and other costs skyrocket, class lines are hardening. Inheritance as a share of GDP in France has grown roughly threefold since 1950, with some upper-income French millennials inheriting more money than many workers make in a lifetime. The growing importance of inherited assets is even more pronounced in Germany, Britain and the United States. In the US, a country with a national mythology that looks askance at inherited wealth, the children of property-owning parents are far better situated to own a house eventually (often with parental help) and enter what is now known as ‘the funnel of privilege.’ In America, millennials are three times as likely as boomers to count on inheritance for their retirement. Among the youngest cohort, aged eighteen to twenty-two, over 60 per cent expect that inheritance will be their primary source of income as they age.

How will the downwardly mobile react to the prospect of permanent rental serfdom and, ultimately, total dependence on the state? A recent Edelman survey reveals that increasing numbers no longer trust institutions or believe hard work pays off. In a world dominated by a few institutions, today’s precariat of gig and short-contract workers, and those who have dropped out of the workforce entirely, could become an economically less useful version of Marx’s proletariat: a permanent underclass requiring aggressive, quasi-military policing.

Meanwhile, large tech firms and financial giants — even those sceptical about climate change zealotry — see the prospect of record profits and valuations in ‘disruption.’ The pandemic accelerated the white-collar shift to remote work, and the broader demand for automated solutions skyrocketed. A future less reliant on human labor elevates the tech oligarchs to the highest perch on what Lenin called ‘the commanding heights’ of the economy.

In a digitalised economy, it’s good to control the critical niches. The oligarchs do this brilliantly. They have seized dominant shares of key markets from search (Google) to social media (Facebook) to book sales (Amazon). Google and Apple together provide over 95 per cent of operating software for mobile devices, while Microsoft still accounts for over 80 per cent of the software that runs personal computers around the world.

We are increasingly ruled by a perfect marriage of class convenience, with more power for the clerisy and ever-greater economic opportunities for the oligarchy — all with the added benefit of encouraging them to feel good about themselves. Even as they push austerity on the masses, they live like medieval lords, indulging in lavish weddings and building estates reminiscent of the Habsburgs’. Jeff Bezos just spent $100 million (£80 million) on a Hawaiian retreat. Bill Gates’s daughter just enjoyed a $2 million (£1.5 million) wedding. John Kerry, president Biden’s chief climate scold and beneficiary of an heiress’s fortune, travels on a private jet that use thirty times the energy of the average American vehicle.

The tech oligarchs are creating something similar to what Aldous Huxley called in Brave New World Revisited a ‘scientific caste system.’ There is ‘no good reason,’ Huxley wrote in 1958, that ‘a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown.’ It will condition its subjects from the womb so that they ‘grow up to love their servitude’ and ‘never dream of revolution.’ It will maintain a strict social order and provide enough diversion through drugs, sex and videos to keep their artificially narrowed minds occupied and sated.

[Joel Kotkin, in The Spectator]

Sobering analysis.

Still, it may be that the “perfect system” the Western ruling circles and cabals strive towards will be smashed, either by natural events or by war. Not a nice prospect but something of the sort may be, also, the only way for Western society to escape from socio-political sclerosis.

The “Left”/”Right” terminology is useless. Let’s be specific: much of the censorship and “cancelling” comes from the Jew-Zionist element; the rest from the “woke”, multikulti, fake “diversity” side, but in fact much of that has been fostered by Jews as well, at least in its origins. Those two “sides” may clash on some issues (mostly Israel/Palestine) but are both drivers of intellectual repression.

Outside academia too. I have been attacked without pause by the Jew-Zionist element, and for many years, not least since this blog started just over five years ago.

Regular readers of the blog will know that I was recently blogging about all of this (in general, not this latest news), concluding that the Conservative Party probably can recover its position if it bins Johnson fairly soon. Initially, I thought that idiot would go before summer this year, but corrected myself to say spring 2022. Now? Seems that it could be any moment.

There is no constitutional imperative for a General Election to be held before late 2024 and, at the end of the day, Labour is offering nothing to the British people either, so once The Idiot is binned, the Cons may be able to recover at least to near-parity with Lab.

I saw an interesting analysis, to the effect that, even if there were a general election right now, Labour might still have a majority of a handful of seats, or even no majority.

In the end, though, both Lab and Con are two faces of the (((System))), and are under the same concealed flag.

Diary Blog, 15 January 2022, including an outline of the failure of the latest Jew-Zionist attempt to prosecute me

Blog news

Readers of my blog will be unaware that, nearly 6 months ago, an individual closely-connected to the fake “charity” known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] made a malicious and unwarranted complaint to the police about me.

I shall not mention today the name of the guilty individual, nor those of his half-dozen or so most-guilty accomplices.

In the heat of summer, on my birthday at that, two local uniformed police arrived at my door, and informed me that ********** (a serial complainer to police, as I knew but they, probably, did not) had accused me of “racial harassment”.

After a brief discussion —slightly heated, certainly exasperated, on my side— the police agreed to email me with details of when I might, on a date of my choosing, be willing to attend the local police station.

I arranged for a London solicitor known to me to be in attendance remotely, via telephone, but on the agreed day of the interview (about a week later) there was a communications problem, so the interview was rescheduled.

Three weeks or so after the police had arrived (entirely unnecessarily) at my door, I attended the (so-called) “voluntary” interview at the new and bijou local police station, set in a quiet location away from the nearest road. A hot and sunny Saturday, and early evening.

So quiet, in terms of crime, is the local town, that the new police station is rather hidden away, and one has to press a button to ask to be let in.

The young policeman (well, when you are 65, as I now am, they all look young!) who had come to my door, and a female colleague, interviewed me on both audio and video tape (pursuant to the Police and Criminal Evidence Act [PACE] 1984,

I had prepared (and already emailed) a quite long statement about the situation as I saw it, i.e. the 9 years of attempts by dishonest and malicious Jew-Zionists to have me, inter alia, expelled from Twitter, disbarred, questioned by police, arrested, prosecuted, tried, convicted, and imprisoned.

So far, they have had me disbarred [see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/], though both wrongfully and actually unlawfully (see the link just posted for details). That was in October 2016, complaint having been made in 2014 (sub nom “UK Lawyers for Israel”).

The Jew-Zionists also managed to have me expelled from Twitter (in 2018, via a concerted conspiratorial campaign which took them about 6 years).

The said pack, or connected packs, have also had me questioned a few times now by the police (twice under caution), but I have never been arrested, never been charged or summonsed, never been prosecuted, never been tried, never been convicted, and never been imprisoned.

As we know, “they” can be relentless in their vindictive pursuit, as written about by none other than William Shakespeare, and the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” crowed mightily, after satirical singer Alison Chabloz was imprisoned, that it had taken the “CAA” 5 years “to get her“.

That evil pack will no doubt make further attempts to use “lawfare” (as they call it) to attack British people such as me, people standing up for Britain and for European civilization. They will continue to fail, most of the time.

Reverting to that police interview, though, it started off with some rather odd questions. I was asked when I last had had a drink! This was not their way of offering me a cold beer on a very hot day, but I have no idea whether that is now a standard police question in the era of the nanny-state, or whether I looked intoxicated!

I thought about it for a second, before answering that I had had a glass of cognac— about a week previously. That answer made both of them laugh, as I explained that I do not drink a great deal these days.

Another odd question was as to whether I had ever been in the Army, by which I assumed they meant the British Army (rather than the Salvation Army, Church Army, Barmy Army, or the Foreign Legion (etc) . I replied, truthfully, that I had never held any commission, nor any enlisted rank, in the Army, though I had spent the odd day, and the odd weekend, as a kind of visitor, on British Army bases (in the 1970s and late 1980s).

I have to admit that the police were polite, even pleasant, and of course they were “only following orders” by asking about that absurd accusation of harassment.

After a few more questions (mostly as to whether I had any medical conditions), we started the interview proper. I read into the record my two-page statement. My throat was dry after the first page. The woman police person (are they still called “WPCs”?—maybe not) very kindly offered me a mug of water, and brought it.

Amusingly enough, the mug had an appeal from the “Prevent” nonsense on the side, and a short telephone number. I made a joke about that, to the effect that if I had any more trouble from ********* (the guilty individual) and the “CAA”, I might have to call in to denounce them! I blogged about “Prevent” years ago [https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/05/30/one-mans-extremism-is-another-mans-struggle-for-liberty-and-justice/].

A few questions followed, mostly answered with “no comment”, and that was that. I was informed that I would not be placed under arrest, or charged there and then, but that the statement would be sent to other (unspecified) persons —I assumed to another part of the country, and/or the Crown Prosecution Service [CPS]— who would decide whether the matter would be taken further.

I parted from the police on an amicable basis, and briefly considered pocketing the now-empty “Prevent” mug as a souvenir and trophy, but thought better of it.

That, however, was not the end of the affair.

Some of my readers, perhaps especially any legal people, may ask why I made a statement at all, rather than just no-commenting. That is usually good advice (and is what the London solicitor had advised), but I decided to detail a number of matters going beyond the fact that there was no actual evidence of “racial” (or any other form of) harassment by me in relation to ********* (the guilty party…) and his pack. If you like, I decided to let rip and give the pack of bastards both barrels (metaphorically).

True, in the absence of any evidence that there had been any “harassment” in the first place, I could have, perhaps should have, in effect said, simply, “prove it“, but my decision was both tactical and also me wanting to put the record straight about those criminal CAA bastards.

Weeks passed. Months passed. Nothing happened, and I began to assume that the matter had been dropped but without formal notification, as had happened on a previous occasion, in 2017, when the same bastards, typically, had thought to kick me when I was down (soon after my wrongful and unlawful disbarment), and via another malicious complaint, that time under the notorious “bad law” known as Communications Act 2003, s.127.

That complaint had been to tame (((occupied))) police at Grays, Essex. (my blog post about that 2017 complaint against me can be found via the search box on this blog).

Well, just when I thought that it was safe to go back in the water, the local police sent me a letter. So creaking is Britain’s infrastructure now that it took 11 days to reach me (in the same area, only about 2 miles away, at that)! The decision had (it seemed, though nothing was written directly) still not been made to drop what was a ridiculous “case” that should never have been taken seriously by the police (in another part of the country, I believe) in the first place.

That was it. Forget both barrels. Think nuclear strike. I dropped a —metaphorical— strategic nuclear bomb. Within 24 hours, I had received email notification that the CPS had decided that no further action would be taken against me on the complaint by ********** and that I would receive no further contact about it.

In other words, ********** can slither away again now. I would suggest that he gets better legal advice next time.

Some thoughts from 5 years ago, revisited

I take the opportunity to resurrect from my blog archives the following post from late 2016: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2016/12/03/the-society-of-measure/.

I have made just criticism in the past few years of, inter alia, Aaron Bastani and Ash Sarkar, and their idea called “Fully Automated Luxury Communism” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fully_Automated_Luxury_Communism], but (despite not having read the book), I apprehend that one of its basic premises is that the benefits of modern technology and productive techniques have been arrogated by a tiny minority of finance-capitalists. If my understanding of the book is correct in that regard, then I certainly agree with that view; indeed, it can hardly be denied.

Books such as The Spirit Level [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spirit_Level_(book)] have shown how inequality in the “Western” world has grown since the 1950s and particularly in recent decades. Numerous studies have shown how the remuneration and wealth (capital) of corporate owners and the highest strata of executives has become grotesque.

In the 1950s, in the USA the typical disparity between the pay of highest-paid and lowest-paid in a company was about 15:1. Now it is hundreds to one and, in not a few cases, thousands to one. That is without even getting into share options, capital gains etc

The same is true of the UK. There are many large companies where the top executives are getting a million or more a year (many millions in some cases) in salary alone, while the bottom-level employees are on something like £15,000. A ratio of at least 70:1, and in many cases hundreds to one.

It is not a question, for me, of inequality alone (some inequality is inevitable and indeed good) but of inequality so great and so unfair that it amounts to inequity.

We see how some of the wealthiest capitalists on Earth (Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Elon Musk etc) vie with each other to build their own space rockets, not to do anything truly worthwhile with them but to take what amount to joy-rides into space, accompanied by other hugely-wealthy individuals. Meanwhile, their own employees live on pennies, in many cases unable to pay their rent, feed their families properly, or achieve even a modestly-comfortable standard of living.

The fruits of scientific and technological innovation must be shared more equitably.

ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them
under their feet, and turn again and rend you
.” [Matthew 7:6]

…or, more likely, has decided to turn a Nelsonian eye…

It is entirely misplaced and wrongheaded “compassion” to invite into the UK (or to tolerate an unwanted invasion by) those who, most of them, despise British people and/or hate us, and who will be, at best, a heavy millstone round the British neck, forever.

Justin Welby will have to suffer no detriment by tolerating the migration invasion. No, that burden will be borne by the British poor, mostly.

I was going to keep the blog short today, and concentrated on purely Christmas topics (and one does after all have other things to do on Christmas Day), but the world has impinged on my retreat…

A few thoughts around Christmas

Naturally, Christmas, as we know it in the UK and/or “Anglosphere”, is largely what people today often call “a construct” or “social construct”. You see in magazines or online quite a lot of historical detail about that.

A few examples: St. Nicholas was someone from what is now part of Turkey, not the North Pole: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinterklaas.

In the UK, perhaps especially England, we have a fairly closely-defined idea of what Christmas should be: the Christmas tree, the angel or star atop the tree, carols, Santa Claus in his red suit, sitting in a sleigh in the sky, itself pulled by flying reindeer.

As many will know, the Christmas tree tradition, in England, dates back only to 1834, when one was installed at Windsor Castle; the tradition dates back longer in Germany, to the late Middle Ages.

As for the fairy atop the tree, that may be connected with the late Roman cult of Mithras, though that seems to me to be contrived, in view of the fact that the Christmas tree tradition itself is of recent historical origin. I would not say, though, that I am really qualified to pronounce on that aspect.

As to red-suited Santa with his sled or sleigh, reindeer etc, that is a conflation of ancient traditions, 19thC traditions, and “traditions” which come from as recent a source as 1930s American ads for Coca-Cola: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Claus.

In Russia, the 19thC saw “Grandfather Frost” emerge, a tradition at least half-heartedly kept up in 20thC Soviet times as an alternative to the usually disapproved-of and sometimes suppressed Russian Orthodox Christmas religious holiday (which takes place a couple of weeks after the Western one by reason of the fact that the Russian Orthodox church still uses the Julian Calendar).

I believe that some Christian occultists aver that the “Santa in a sleigh” picture has an underlying reality in that the Cosmic Christ travels spiritually around the world for the “12 days of Christmas”, assessing the overall spiritual condition of the world. Perhaps.

My own view is that it does not really matter that our 20thC/21stC idea of Christmas would seem slightly odd to Victorian England, and downright alien to the English of Tudor times. It is our mental picture, our idea of what is sacred, our idea of what is worthwhile. It encapsulates what has gone before, and is of social and personal value.

Whatever the origins of Christmas as we know it, and however “inauthentic” some may claim it to be, the fact remains that we regard it as sort-of-sacred, even if in a sense it is not, and that includes the “Father Christmas” or “Santa Claus” figure in his red robes, even if he does only date back, in that form, to 1930s Disney and Coca-Cola. We do not like it being changed for obviously socio-political reasons.

Ghastly

Saw a few minutes on TV of some ghastly Christmas thing in Westminster Abbey yesterday. Some weird fellow looking like a Scottish down and out strumming on a guitar and, er, singing, while queen-to-be Kate accompanied on a piano. Not quite sure what the whole thing was, because I only saw a minute or two of it.

The Mezzotint

Saw a BBC adaptation of the M.R. James story, The Mezzotint. My expectations were not, if truth be told, high, but in fact this was an excellent short film. The original story was written in 1904, but the adaptation was, seemingly, set in the 1920s (judging by the props, clothes, and some music heard).

Even the fact that, typically for today, they shoehorned a non-European into the story (an anglicized Indian, or Anglo-Indian), did not jar, the way it was done. Pretty good.

I can recommend highly the 1995 documentary below, finely narrated by the late Bill Wallis [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Wallis]:

Quite right. In my several interactions with the UK police since I became more active politically online —in the past decade— I have come to realize, rather to my surprise, that the British police (often all-too-easily misled by the Jew-Zionist element) quite often have no idea, or proper idea, of the laws of this country, or of the liberties that still exist under those laws. As for knowledge of history, geopolitics, race and culture generally, forget it!

…and almost all the “civil rights” types, the (often Jew) “human rights” lawyers, the usual suspects of those and other sorts, as well as those working on TV, radio, or in the (again, supposed) “free Press” etc, backed the police state measures! Apart from those (such as me) not, or only peripherally, in the public eye, almost all of the self-proclaimed or supposed defenders of rights, “democracy”, decency, “freedom” etc went the same way, and became, almost overnight, sycophants of the police state. Or were they in reality always puppets of the System?

There have been a few well-known public figures or personalities who, in the past nearly 2 years of “Covid” socio-political madness and repression, have stood up for both liberty and the proper rule of law (law, not mere laws, in a “society under law” rather than a society merely “with laws”; even North Korea and Stalin’s regime have or had laws…).

Lord Sumption has been one [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Sumption,_Lord_Sumption]; the controversialist journalist and columnist Peter Hitchens another [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Hitchens; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/].

There have been some others, less erudite but perhaps more able to engage the mass audience; people such as, recently, Maajid Nawaz [

The monks who hammered a wooden stake into the mouth of the philosopher Giordano Bruno (in 1600, following long investigation, incarceration, and trial by the Inquisition), did so apparently believing that they were doing something good (because their cruel “measures” were done in order to prevent Bruno from further blaspheming and so further imperilling his soul). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giordano_Bruno; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giordano_Bruno#Imprisonment,_trial_and_execution,_1593%E2%80%931600. (Bruno was then hung naked upside down and burned at the stake).

People often do very wicked and/or cruel things either in the belief that they are not wicked, or because the measures taken are believed to be necessary in order to support a greater good, or to protect society, or an institution of society.

The execution of Giordano Bruno was 500+ years ago, but (to give only a few examples of the syndrome), electric shock therapy is still practised widely today; abuse of psychiatry for reasons of socio-political control did not stop with the Soviet Union and the Serbsky Institute [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbsky_Center] (Google, eg “Tavistock Institute” and “Tavistock Clinic”); and torture for allegedly “good” reasons has been practised even within the past couple of decades by the USA and other supposedly advanced states, as well as by the obvious examples such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and other Arab and/or Muslim states, North Korea etc.

“Prison Planet” Watson

I do not rate very highly, from the ideological or socio-political point of view, vlogger Paul Joseph Watson (for one thing, he never says anything critical of the Jew-Zionist cabals, or Israel, and never defends those under attack by those elements for dissidence, people such as Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, Ian Millard…etc), but credit where due…

Ukraine, as a fake “state” in the past few decades, is basically now, in terms of its set-up since 2014 especially, a Jewish-Zionist capture. The most important players in Ukraine, politically and economically, are Jews. The mass of Ukrainians are not of particularly high culture, and are easily fooled, ruled, and exploited, and they certainly have been…

For Britain, as part of NATO, to get into conflict with Russia about Eastern Ukraine, the eastern part of a territory inextricably linked to Russia for over 1,100 years, is absurd, and might lead to terrible consequences in the UK, should actual (strategic/continental) war result from all of this.

I would say “get Boris out!“, but most of those tweeting that want Jewish-lobby puppet and false alternative Keir Starmer in Downing Street, together with Yvette Cooper, Rachel Reeves, and the rest. Nein danke!

There is no true democracy, or anything approaching it, in the UK.

Music

From the golden days of Hollywood…

They may not have had the technical resources of today but, at their best, they could really make films back then.

I think that I may have blogged en passant in the past about how I saw Bette Davis a few years before her death, when she was on the (I think) South Bank Show with Andrei Tarkovsky and maybe someone else as well; filmed at the South Bank Centre in London. That was about 4 years before her death. Sometime in the mid-1980s. In fact, despite her age, she outlived Tarkovsky, who died only a year or so later (1986), aged only 54. Tarkovsky had been only about 5 or 6 years old in 1938 when Jezebel was released.

The public were kept back (mostly not allowed into the building at all). Even inside, there was tight control. I was there just to meet someone else but I was introduced by a third party to the (British) chief of Bette Davis’s security (there was a whole expert team guarding her) and he said that I could stand there next to him as she came through with her “lady in waiting” and a couple of other people. An almost fossilized —and rather imperial— figure, aware of her status, rather like the last Queen of Naples.

It was amazing to see how various unwanted people, mainly autograph-hunters, kept trying to get to her, only to be expertly and diplomatically (though firmly) blocked by the guard team. One fellow even swung down (literally) from an external concrete stairway as a small side door was opened! He too was stopped, autograph book and pen in hand, and still tried to persuade the dinner-jacketed guard to let him through! All the while, the guard chief and I stood about 12 feet away, and Bette Davis + small entourage closer yet. Interesting to see. The chief of security remarked to me, as she passed by, something like “there goes a living legend“. A bit of a cliche, of course, but true.

What lies under our feet?

It is good, occasionally, to elevate oneself above the matters of the day, and to consider wider questions. I was just looking at an article I wrote for the blog a couple of years ago. I think that it is worth reading, not least because it has been one of the least-read blog posts I have written since the blog started in late 2016.

Here is another blog post from 2019, this time examining aspects of the countryside: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/10/07/rewilding-and-reafforestation-of-parts-of-the-uk/.

Free speech

As one would expect, a good article by Peter Hitchens on the death of free speech in the UK: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10300047/PETER-HITCHENS-Generation-puzzled-idea-right-say-things-dont-agree-with.html.

Professor Luckhurst tried to calm the students who gawped at him as he educated them on free speech at universities
[“Professor Luckhurst tried to calm the students who gawped at him as he educated them on free speech at universities“— Peter Hitchens in the Daily Mail. Quelle surprise…look at them…Chinese etc…he may as well have been talking in a language unknown to them, and the same, sadly, seems to be true of many of the British students]

Some of the Hitchens article:

I am – for the moment – one of the luckier ones. But I do not expect it to last for ever. I can see that, for most people, true free speech has ceased to exist.

Step outside the borders of acceptable thought in a school or a workplace and you can very quickly find yourself being denounced and in serious trouble.

On some issues, such as the transgender controversy, it is virtually impossible to say anything without attracting the attention of the Thought Police.

In workplaces, from fire stations to schools, everything must conform with ‘Equality and Diversity’. This is in fact the law of the land. Where trade unions still exist, they support the new speech codes and will not defend you. So most people wisely do not risk it.

Among millions, the idea that you can defend someone’s right to say something you disagree with is now puzzling. They have no idea why anyone would do that. For them, the debate is over, they have won, and those who oppose them are stupid and wrong.

The whole concept of tolerance has almost died in this generation, as far as I can see.” [Peter Hitchens, in the Daily Mail].

Regular or long-term readers of this blog will be aware that I have written about my own experiences in respect of the all-but disappeared freedom of expression in the UK: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

I have also, incidentally, blogged about Hitchens himself: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/.

As Hitchens says, many have no understanding of, let alone any wish to defend, free speech or freedom of expression. The image below shows it quite well:

[not Durham University, though it might as well be…]

I might add that I have never once seen Peter Hitchens speak out to defend my free speech rights, as for example when I was wrongfully and unlawfully disbarred for having tweeted 5 tweets, all of which were true, such as calling Michael Gove an expenses cheat, pro-Jew and pro-Israel (I did not know at the time that Gove —who is still a Cabinet minister!— was, and is still, also a cocaine abuser and a drunk).

No, not one word has Hitchens said to defend my free speech rights. It cannot be said that his failure was or is because I am merely a private citizen living in obscurity; after all, most of the national newspapers featured my disbarment (in 2016). The Daily Mail gave my “case” a whole page. I was also featured on Sky News.

Neither have Hitchens, nor Toby Young, nor the “Free Speech Union” ever supported those known to me who have suffered actual prosecution and imprisonment for exercizing free speech. People such as Alison Chabloz (who sang satirical songs about Zionists and “holocaust” fakery, and posted them online), and Jez Turner (who made a humorous speech in Whitehall, urging the removal of Jews from the UK).

Now we come to the nub of the matter. While the Durham University incident was not linked directly to the Jew-Zionist lobby, most other attacks on free speech in the UK are. In the UK, the Jewish/Zionist lobby is the greatest enemy of free speech.

There is no point complaining about the symptom without expressly identifying and understanding the (((source))) of the problem.

Finally, how ironic that the Daily Mail is “not allowing comments” by its readers on Hitchens’ articles…

[note: my definition of “free speech” or “freedom of expression” would be “unrestricted expression on matters social, political, racial, scientific, artistic, and historical”].

She believes Ms Maxwell will be found guilty. ‘Ghislaine enabled Jeffrey to do what he did,’ she says. ‘I believe she is evil. She’s a narcissist who thinks she has done nothing wrong. To her, we were nothing. I hope justice is done…’I pray justice will be done in court,’ she says, ‘but I am a very spiritual person and I believe whatever happens, Ghislaine will burn in hell for all eternity“. [a named Epstein/Maxwell victim, speaking to the Daily Mail].

Epstein has already gone “up the chimney”. How long until “Maxwell” follows?

Diary Blog, 14 November 2021, with a few thoughts about writers and films

Angela Merkel retires from public life

[Merkel’s legacy]

A few thoughts on the subject of writers, and filmed books

The writer Wilbur Smith has died.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-59278275;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilbur_Smith

I think that I have only read one or two of his books, long ago, in the 1970s. He sold 140 million copies altogether. When I visited Rhodesia in 1977, I found that the only large (perhaps even, the only) bookshop in Salisbury (now Harare) sold few books from Europe or North America (because of the anti-Rhodesia sanctions imposed, and because of shortage of foreign currency). South African or locally-published books about how to look after your horse, dog, even tropical fish, seemed to be the main stock-in-trade. Those, and Wilbur Smith.

Smith’s huge success as author did not translate well onto film, judging by the two films seen by me (Gold, and Shout at the Devil). Some have thought that the film The Wild Geese was based on a book by Smith, but that is not so [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wild_Geese].

At one time, I thought that the book The Rain Goddess [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rain_Goddess] was one of his, but in fact it was written by another writer, Peter Stiff [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Stiff].

Some writers, some characters, do not translate well onto film, or are hard to film credibly. In my opinion, Raffles has never been brought to life successfully. The same could be said of Chesterton’s Father Brown stories.

One writer usually poorly-represented in the films of his books was Alistair Maclean; at least eleven of whose books were filmed. The best I have seen is probably Where Eagles Dare, though Ice Station Zebra is also not too bad. Some of the films based on Alistair Maclean books are very poor indeed, though, e.g. When Eight Bells Toll [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/When_Eight_Bells_Toll_(film)].

Even much-filmed John le Carre has often not translated well onto screen. The BBC series Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was incomparable, its sequel, Smiley’s People, also very good (and another mini-series, A Perfect Spy, was not bad, lifted by the stellar performance of Peter Egan); le Carre’s stuff is better in such series format, hard to squeeze into the couple of hours of a feature film.

The Tinker, Tailor film released a decade ago was, for me, pretty poor, pedestrian, though it seems that only the more thoughtful critics agreed with me! See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tinker_Tailor_Soldier_Spy_(film)#Critical_response.

It may be that the best feature film adaptation of le Carre was the black and white The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, with Richard Burton:

I myself rarely read any kind of fiction now; when young, I did. In the adventure genre, my favourite was Hammond Innes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hammond_Innes]; rather forgotten now, I suppose. Four of his books were filmed, but (in my view) only one quite well, The White South, which was filmed as Hell Below Zero; the film contains historically-valuable, though unpleasant, footage of actual Antarctic whaling.

My favourite Hammond Innes book is The Strange Land, but it was never filmed.

Some writers’ books, which you would think would have made exciting films, never were filmed. Desmond Bagley [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desmond_Bagley] comes to mind. Adventure in tropical or other wild parts of the world: espionage, crime, treasure-hunting. I have only read a couple of his books. I recall reading The Vivero Letter about 50 years ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Vivero_Letter_(novel).

Desmond Bagley, like Hammond Innes, can create a credible and quite gripping world out of strange and unusual events.

Another author whose work went largely but not entirely unfilmed was Elleston Trevor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elleston_Trevor. His spy story The Berlin Memorandum, written under the nom de plume “Adam Hall”, was filmed as The Quiller Memorandum, though not very credibly, in my opinion. Somewhat in the Len Deighton area [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Len_Deighton].

Trevor is arguably better known as the writer of the book The Flight of the Phoenix, filmed twice. As usual, the earlier film was the better by far.

Len Deighton himself (he is still around, presently aged 92) has had a number (I think three) of his early books filmed, and quite successfully, perhaps (?) because they are not as reflective and “psychological” as those of le Carre and some others. The IPCRESS File, Funeral in Berlin, Billion Dollar Brain. Indeed, his own later work is more complex.

Tweets seen

This kind of “pile-on” is typical of Twitter, of course. Not that Twitter is of any real importance now. Most of the really interesting accounts have been “suspended” (expelled), including mine!

My own Twitter account was removed in 2018 after a big effort by a pack of Jew extremists. Now we see almost any “dissident” account worth looking at removed. The better-known names include David Icke, Mark Collett, Laura Towler, Alison Chabloz, Katie Hopkins, the London Forum. Many others.

The purge on Twitter continues: only a week ago, the account of thinker Nick Kollerstrom was removed. Why? Usual (((suspects))), of course…

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Kollerstrom

I repost tweets on the blog as a quick and easy way of making points or illustrating matters, but in fact Twitter has little real political influence. I have blogged in the past about this. I am always seeing accounts with, supposedly, thousands of “followers” yet only a handful of “likes” or retweets on any given tweet. Some accounts do get hundreds and even thousands of likes/retweets, but then you look at the profile and find that those accounts (mostly of the “famous”) have hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of Twitter followers.

As I have blogged previously, it says much about the self-describing “Left” that their big idea is to “deplatform” this or that person or organization. Nothing to say about society or how to form a better one; just negativity. That is why such people rarely get anywhere politically. Their lives revolve around Twitter. Many of the Zionist Jew cabal on Twitter are like that. They even have a word for themselves, “J-Twitter”.

As for the campaign of propaganda (not only “Covid” passports etc but the whole racemixing campaign), I was alerting the people to that years ago. Now, many are waking up.

However, that propaganda campaign is not aimed at people like me (65-y-o), nor indeed at those in their fifties or forties, nor even at those in their thirties and twenties. This is propaganda, and subliminal propaganda, aimed mainly at children, whose critical faculties are at an early stage of development.

The idea is to normalize the multikulti society, the society composed of various and very different races and ethnic groups, which society will then form the mixed-race mass promoted by Coudenhove-Kalergi.

See: https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi.

TV ads and “soaps” are an important part of this propaganda campaign: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/. Written by me in December 2018, and even more pertinent today.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/nov/14/uk-must-be-ready-for-war-with-russia-says-armed-forces-chief

Actually, I love donkeys, but not those carrying the rank of general officer.

Imagine a real war between NATO (i.e. the USA, i.e., in reality, NWO/ZOG) and Russia. It would quite likely turn nuclear. Britain is still the USA’s “unsinkable aircraft carrier” in the words, I believe of Roosevelt. You could say goodbye to the UK and most of the British people, were the UK to be attacked; we are just too small, geographically, and have too many people (and too many key targets) in far too small a space. Britain could do a lot of damage to Russia, but not destroy Russia. Russia, however, could destroy the UK, in effect.

Why is Britain still being the poodle of the American NWO cabals? It’s madness. Better to join with Russia, against both NWO/ZOG and, if necessary, China, and certainly against both Zionism and Islamism.

Denison’s Island. I have been there, in 1967, aged 10, with my school class. There was no-one else there at the time except the custodians. Strange place, quite small inside (the walls are over 12 ft thick in places), with a small area of lawn and a few old cannon: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Denison. 54 years ago. Hard to believe.

The constant and seemingly neverending push for vengeance (not “justice”) against Germany and German people by the international Jew-Zionist lobby is, quite exactly, “a kind of distasteful Old Testament thing“, akin to the behaviour exhibited by the Israelites thousands of years ago.

For true European people, the idea of carrying on persecution of individuals, or a state, or country, for decades or even hundreds of years (will the Zionists stop whining and/or bullying in 2045?), for alleged crimes which are not continuing, is indeed distasteful.

The Japanese, or many of them, treated Allied prisoners abominably during WW2. We, meaning the British, after the war ended, hanged or shot a relatively few and clearly proven war criminals, persons who had cruelly or brutally transgressed the accepted rules of war. The rest were released.

Now, nearly 80 years later, we do not seek out Japanese who were 18-y-o typists or even sentries, and put them on trial in a grotesque parody of courtroom “justice”, which is actually (in the case of of 90 or 100 year old SS men or German female ex-typists) a deliberately-contrived ordeal because of the defendants’ age and medical condition.

Likewise, no-one has suggested that those who, at age 18 or 16 were typists or security guards at, say, Los Alamos, should be tried for “facilitating” mass murder of Japanese civilians at Hiroshima. That would be not only unjust but, as said, grotesque.

The same could be said of British people who worked as typists or teenage Home Guard personnel etc at RAF bases from where bombers left to devastate the cities of the Reich in 1941-45, killing between 600,000-800,000 people, mostly civilians, mostly women and children.

The German bombings of the UK killed far fewer, 60,000 or so, but that was still devastation on a wide scale; yet the British do not constantly whine about it now, and did not at the time, or immediately after 1945.

The attitude of many Jews, particularly the hardcore Zionists, is at odds with the culture of Europeans, including British. So why the trials? Because the present German state is still, in a sense, “occupied”…

Diary Blog, 12 November 2021, including thoughts about “stay behind” units in the South of England of 1940

[Churchill, toting an “iconic” Thompson submachinegun with 50-round drum magazine while visiting coastal defences at Hartlepool in 1940]

“Stay behind” units in 1940: an historical note

The Second World War, with its complexities, nuances, twists and turns, and ideological subtleties, is endlessly fascinating. I happened to see a local newspaper story about part of Churchill’s idea of how to “fight on the beaches, fight on the landing-grounds” etc.

Churchill, though a genuinely world-historical figure, unlike Boris Johnson (who tries to ape his style and manner), does have a few characteristics in common with his latter-day copier. One is that he was largely ineffective as head of government when given his head; also, he was a person with, often, very silly ideas. Churchill was no good as a strategist; as for tactics, his ideas were really straight out of boys’ comic books.

The Norway operation in 1940; the British Expeditionary Force in France, also in 1940 (my own grandfather was on the Dunkirk beaches), the idea of invading France via the Cote-d’Azur in 1944, the Fall of France, the Fall of Greece (including Crete), and so on, give some idea of Churchill’s lack of strategic nous.

Now, more information has come to light about the “stay behind” units secretly organized in case of German invasion in 1940: https://www.dorset.live/news/history/nazi-invasion-dorset-auxillary-units-5621886.

Stay-behind units were organized, with the idea that they might not last more than 12 days after any German “reverse D-Day”.

It was presumed that German invasion forces would strike initially at the London area:

Operation Sealion, Hitler’s plan to invade across the Channel, almost saw the German 6th Army land at Lyme Regis in 1940 and push inland to Bristol and Gloucester.

Meanwhile the 9th and 16th Armies were to attack from Portsmouth to Dover, sweeping northwards to capture London and East Anglia, Britain’s breadbasket.” [DorsetLive].

Despite the chilling ruthlessness of their remit, the “Auxiliary Units” had a delightfully Wodehousian aspect:

“Grouped into “operational patrols” of four to eight men, AU members needed excellent local knowledge – making gamekeepers and poachers ideal candidates.

But known members of local patrols include bakers, carpenters, car salesmen, dairy farmers, electricians, fishmongers, miners and train drivers.

The staff of Charborough Park – a country house estate now belonging to South Dorset MP Richard Drax – were also formed into an AU patrol.

The chauffeurs, foresters, gamekeeper and gardener of Sir Reginald Aylmer Ranfurly Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, Mr Drax’s grandfather, moonlighted as would-be saboteurs and assassins.” [DorsetLive].

One almost expects Sir Roderick Spode (a parody of Sir Oswald Mosley) to make an appearance, with a slight ideological twist, perhaps. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roderick_Spode.

There were, it seems, about 6,500 volunteers in such “stay behind” units, most of whom were organized around the southern and eastern coasts of England.

Had “Operation Sealion” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Sea_Lion] ever been launched into action, the defending forces, including the 6,500 Auxiliary Unit fighters, would have faced an onslaught by 600,000 German troops (100,000 on the first day), backed by 650 tanks and 4,500 horses: https://www.theargus.co.uk/news/17353462.nazi-d-day-made-south-coast-target/. The Auxiliary Units would have been mosquitos biting elephants.

As for the conventional forces defending, “The Germans put the British defences at 320,000 men, with machine gun nests positioned 300 yards from the coastline, artillery guns 1,000 yards inland and another line of artillery and machine gun nests 3,000 yards back.

A line of more than 600 armoured cars and tanks were said to have been positioned two miles inland and a reserve of 50,000 men a further two miles back.” [The Argus].

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Sea_Lion_order_of_battle.

In fact, Operation Sealion was not a ready to roll plan such as had been Fall Gelb, “Case Yellow” (or “Operation Yellow”), the plan for the invasion of France [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manstein_Plan]. Sealion was called Unternehmen Seelöwe, not “Fall Seelöwe“.

My German is poorer than it should be (bearing in mind that I did take German at school, and I did also have a couple of crash courses later, when I was in my twenties), but the difference in designation seems to be that one plan was ready-to-go, while the other was somewhere between that and a contingency plan.

It is known that Hitler wanted Britain, and the British Empire, as an ally against the expansionism of both the Soviet Union and the U.S.A. His preference in 1940 was for an armistice, not for conquest by invasion.

Apart from Hitler’s preference for alliance, there were operational reasons why Sealion never proceeded: lack of total air superiority was one, but another perhaps more important was the lack of carrying capacity by sea of the German navy. There were not enough barges to carry the armies required, and not enough defence for those barges.

If, however, the invasion had happened, “[the Auxiliary Units]…would disappear to their OB, wait for the Germans to go over the top of them and attack the rear...”

Patrols would attack bridges, convoys, fuel dumps and so on, breaking the supply chain and holding up the advance of the blitzkrieg, giving the regular army time to regroup and counterattack.

Equipped with suppressed sniper’s rifles, the fighters would also be expected to assassinate anyone who might expose their underground operations.

Patrols would take out collaborators as well as local policemen and intelligence officers – innocent men, killed just for knowing their identities…

Anyone who stumbled across their OB would also be killed. And if a patrol member was injured and couldn’t get back the OB, they were obligated to shoot him...”

Their life expectancy was just 12 short days – with orders to kill each other and themselves if capture by the enemy seemed imminent.” [DorsetLive]

There were, then, two underlying assumptions or, better said, hopes, on the part of the Auxiliary Units: the first was that the units would survive for 12-14 days; the second was that the main British forces would be able to mount a successful counterattack.

As to whether the stay-behind fighters could survive for 14 days, my assessment is that they could do so easily if they did nothing or very little; once they started to shoot people and blow things up, it would be a different story.

The Germans might not have been able to do much to repress any stay-behind activity in the first confused days following invasion, but once those early days had passed, the Feldgendarmerie and SS would rather rapidly have started to arrest or kill suspects.

It is remarkable that the British plans included the assassination, on a default basis, of British police and Army personnel, or local residents, who knew of their existence! That might soon have backfired, with other such people helping the Germans to eliminate such ruthless persons hiding in their neighbourhoods. We shall never know. What we can be fairly sure about is that the Auxiliary Units would have had little impact on the eventual result, in big-picture terms.

As for the Auxiliary Units as the basis for a possible “British Resistance, impossible. Limited stocks of weaponry and ammunition, no help from external sources, and the German security grip tightening steadily.

Could British home forces have defeated a German invasion force, had it landed in the numbers suggested? Doubtful. For one thing, the projected German force was to have been 600,000 after a few days; the defending forces would have numbered under 400,000.

Secondly, the quality of German tanks, light weapons etc outmatched the British; the same was true of the fitness of German troops. Red Cross reports of the period (from France) noted that British soldiers captured were often undernourished, stunted, with poor teeth and poor fitness, a result of the social conditions prevalent in the UK in the 1920s and 1930s. The German prisoners taken by the British were found to be, almost universally, in a good state of health and fitness, the result of, mainly, 7 years of National Socialist government.

Another point is that the German forces will mostly have seen action in Poland or France, whereas the British home forces were mostly without recent battle experience.

It is true that large wargames (a major one took place at Sandhurst in 1974) have generally resulted in German defeat following a 1940 invasion of Britain, but those results were based on destruction of much of the invasion force at sea, and failure to execute the invasion plan with sufficient boldness. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Sea_Lion_(wargame).

History is full of examples of invasions that should have failed, but did not. Alexander’s invasion of the Persian Empire, and William of Normandy’s 1066 invasion of England, are but two. Indeed, Hitler’s own experiences in 1939-41 (Norway, France, Poland, the Soviet Union, Greece, Yugoslavia etc show that boldness can bring victory even in unlikely circumstances. Rommel’s victories in North Africa were usually achieved against the odds.

It can certainly be argued that Hitler should have pressed on in 1940, even in circumstances of high risk. Britain would have quickly folded, and then, under new political leadership, found a new role, with the Empire, as a “dual-rulership” of much of the Earth, in collaboration with the German Reich.

On those premises, huge destruction and misery would have been avoided, both in the 1940s and thereafter. The world would have been a far better place now, had that happened.

As to the results further down the line, had a German invasion succeeded, one has to say that, in some ways, perhaps most ways, Britain itself might have been —80 years on— better for it. There would have been no migration-invasion by blacks and browns, and no Jewish-Zionist exploitation. Services such as the NHS would have been available earlier and better.

Incidentally, a German victory in 1940 would not have meant long-term German occupation, certainly not after a few years, and not necessarily a harsh one. The main aim, for Hitler, would have been disarmament or control of the British Army, navy and air force.

Hitler’s preferred ruler of Britain, we now know, was none other than Lloyd George! The Security Service, MI5, was well aware of this, and monitored him closely.

Lloyd George was consistently pro-German after 1923,[169] in part due to his growing conviction that Germany had been treated unfairly at Versailles. He supported German demands for territorial concessions and recognition of its “great power” status; he paid much less attention to the security concerns of France, Poland, Czechoslovakia and Belgium.

[170] In a speech in 1933, he warned that if Adolf Hitler were overthrown Communism would replace him in Germany.[171] In August 1934, he insisted Germany could not wage war, and assured European nations that there would be no risk of war during the next ten years.[172] 

In September 1936, he visited Germany to talk with Hitler. Hitler said he was pleased to have met “the man who won the war”; Lloyd George was moved, and called Hitler “the greatest living German”.[166]: 247  Lloyd George also visited Germany’s public works programmes and was impressed. On his return to Britain, he wrote an article for the Daily Express praising Hitler and stating: “The Germans have definitely made up their minds never to quarrel with us again.[166]: 248 

He believed Hitler was “the George Washington of Germany”; that he was rearming Germany for defence and not for offensive war; that a war between Germany and the Soviet Union would not happen for at least ten years; that Hitler admired the British and wanted their friendship but that there was no British leadership to exploit this.” [Wikipedia].

Well, in the trite but true expression, “man proposes but God disposes”…

Strange. My memory tells me precisely the reverse, as far as the years up to 2010 are concerned. It is a complex picture, but I recall a country where things were OK (speaking very very generally) until 1997 (I was mostly out of the UK that exact year, though), one where a gradual “communitarian” police statism started to develop under Blair and Brown, and one in which (and here I do agree with the tweeter) there was a catastrophic decline in standards from…well, the tweeter says 2010 (i.e. when Cameron-Levita and his clique became the Government), but I think earlier, maybe from 2005 or so (under Gordon Brown).

I recall returning to the UK from France in 2009, having not been here for a year (I had been spending half my time in France since 2005, and was also in a number of other countries during 2005-2010), and noticing the social darkness that had already descended, a year before David Cameron-Levita became Prime Minister.

The (Pakistani?) tweeter is obviously a simplistic Labour Party partisan, who thinks in unsophisticated ways: Labour government 1997— good, Conservative government 2010— bad. If only life were that simple.

Ah. Just looked him up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahir_Shah. Not Pakistani, but Indian Muslim (born in the UK), and a comedian. Britain may be short of housing, energy, water, good jobs, a decent and working society generally, and good government, but we shall never, it seems, run out of comedians. Sometimes there seem to be thousands of them, though few I have seen or heard (on TV or radio) are actually very comic.

£50,000 p.a. for being “office manager” of an office with few if any other employees? Bob Blackman is the Jewish-lobby puppet always acting as mouthpiece for Israel. One of such puppets, anyway.

I would suggest a solution for this, but prefer not to mention it…

…championed the importance of freedom of speech“? Not one word from Young about how I was disbarred (wrongfully and actually unlawfully) at the instigation of a certain pack of Jews, some of whom still try (though vainly) to persecute me. Not a word about the persecution and prosecution, by the same pack of Jews, of the singer-satirist Alison Chabloz, who has now actually done time in prison for mocking “holocaust” fakery and hoaxes (almost all done by Jews). Not a word about the fact that Jez Turner, of the now-defunct London Forum, was imprisoned for simply making a speech in Whitehall urging the removal of Jews from the UK.

Now I wonder whether there is a common theme about those cases when Toby Young and the “Free Speech Union” stayed guiltily silent?…

In 2004-2005, for nearly two years, I lived in a farmhouse in the constituency, near Milton Abbot (6 miles NW of Tavistock), having moved out of Polapit Tamar House, 8 miles away across the Tamar in Cornwall (a lovely place then, though since I lived there, split up into numerous dwelling units, and currently on sale for £7M).

Geoffrey Cox became MP for Torridge and West Devon in 2005, but at that time I was too busy trying to make a living at the Bar to take any notice of System politics, certainly did not vote, and was unaware, I think, even of the bastard’s name.

The constituency is hard-core Conservative Party territory, though. All the farmers and landowners vote Conservative (despite being a “subsidized industry” by any other name). Cox received 60.1% in 2019 (LibDems 18.3%, Labour only 17.2%): see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torridge_and_West_Devon_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s.

The fallibility of human memory

We do not have to consider the almost-ubiquitous “holocaust” fakery, hoaxes, or “memories” which simply could not have happened, to understand that human memory often cannot be relied upon. Ignorance of fact can also play a role.

I have just seen a tweet in which the tweeter reminisces about his school trip to the Soviet Union in 1984 or 1985. The trip apparently consisted of a week in Leningrad and a week in Moscow.

Inter alia, the tweeter concerned tweets that he visited the Hermitage (in Leningrad), and walked on the surface of the frozen Volga…

Well, I suppose that the above memory could be accurate, but probably is not. Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) is on the river Neva (pron. Neeva); Moscow is on the Moscow river or Moskva.

The Volga has a quite convoluted course, and at its nearest to Moscow is only about 85 miles away, at the meeting-place of the Volga with the Moskva-Volga Canal (aka Moscow Canal): https://factsanddetails.com/russia/Places/sub9_9a/entry-7029.html. It goes nowhere very near St. Petersburg.

[river Oka at Nizhny-Novgorod; photograph by Aleksei Trefilov]

The Moscow river is a tributary of the river Oka, which is in turn a tributary of the river Volga.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neva; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moskva_(river); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moscow_Canal; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volga; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oka_(river).

The upshot of the above is that the tweet I saw could be accurate but quite likely is not. The tweeter probably walked on the frozen Neva, or perhaps the Moskva, or the Moskva-Volga Canal.

Memory cannot always be relied upon. My own memory is (I have found) better than that of almost anyone else I have ever met, but is still occasionally inaccurate.

Talking of memories of Russia, I saw another tweet today, which contained a picture of the interior of the GUM complex near Red Square. Marble floors, clean, redolent of luxury.

I first saw GUM in 1993, when most of the shop units were empty, the (then white) marble floors containing wide cracks in places, and a snack bar in the area on the ground floor was doing a good trade in open sandwiches (red caviar on buttered white bread); I had one myself, I think.

When I returned to Moscow in 2007, all changed. Tan marble, everything clean and tidy, and the shops were all occupied; they included Thomas Pink, Armani etc. Not very busy, perhaps because it was a weekday and early evening, or perhaps because of the high prices. In 1993, it was also not busy, though then because there was rather little to buy. I believe that, in Soviet days, GUM was always packed, as was the toy shop Detsky Mir (“Children’s World”) next door (with access then from GUM as well as from the street). In 1993, I wandered in from GUM, out of curiosity. The few outsized soft toys were charged at extortionate prices. Oddly, or perhaps not, no children and few adults there.

For a moment, I thought that he must have done something really bad, like identifying a Jew as Jewish, but on reflection, that would have required the participation of the “Anti-Terrorist Command”, I suppose…

Getting the public used to doing what System figureheads tell them will be (supposedly) best for them; a psychological experiment on the grand scale. Conditioning the public, as with the facemask nonsense, just as stage hypnotists do.

One more example of why SIS/MI6 should be radically reformed, and most of its careerists sacked.

Alison Chabloz

Readers may be aware that persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, faces yet another trial (and, once again, after a complaint by a Jewish person).

It has now been decided that the trial will be held on 18 February 2022. I believe that the forum will be Westminster Mags Court. I do not have information as to likely duration of trial. Presumably one day.

I doubt it, judging by the students and recent graduates who appear on quiz shows such as University Challenge (some, often foreign students, are better), and (a fortiori) The Chase. I happened to see an old Chase (I think from about 2012 or so) yesterday. The contestant was a girl law student from up North somewhere. Her ambition? “To be a barrister like Shaun [Wallace].”

The contestant was very ignorant; dire. She was knocked out. I wonder whether she became a barrister. Probably. It is hard to fail, now. The Bar is pretty much a dustbin these days.

I might add that Shaun Wallace, the “Chaser”, usually billed by the presenter (Bradley Walsh) as, inter alia, “legal eagle and barrister”, is probably a good deal better at quizzing than at law [see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaun_Wallace#Law], and was up before a Bar Disciplinary Tribunal only one day before me, in October 2016. My own “trial” was —of course— not about ethics and competence but about my views on society: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

Quiz shows and similar msm entertainment often have people who are better at being on TV than at their supposed main or former activities. On The Chase, the main “Chaser” is Mark Labett, “The Beast” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Labbett], who (though billed on the show as “the man mountain of maths”), achieved only a Third in mathematics at degree level (at Oxford).

Another similar case is the once almost ubiquitous Carol Vorderman [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carol_Vorderman], who at peak was making £1M a year from TV (mainly). Despite having a reputation as highly intelligent etc, her degree (in Engineering, at Cambridge) was only a Third-class, and indeed she was awarded a Third class in every one of her three years there.

Paper qualifications can only take you so far, and sometimes a step back can later result in two steps forward. Had Carol Vorderman achieved a (thanks to award inflation, now all but inevitable) “First”, she would probably have got a good job somewhere but missed out on her TV opportunity, and her (ultimately) £1M a year pay.

As for radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer vowing “not to forget” about the treacherous MPs and their behaviour, does she mean she will actually do anything about them? No.

Empty words, then, and words that will have no MPs quaking in their boots.

That statistic includes non-whites, so the figure for white British women (especially with equally-white British men as fathers) will be well below 1.5.

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]

Street Cat Bob

I read the (first) book about Street Cat Bob about 7-8 years ago. A very touching story. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Bowen_(author).

I was unaware that Street Cat Bob had died (last year, it seems). I was, therefore, also unaware that a little statue had been commissioned in his honour. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-57855092.

The point made by James Bowen is also valid; that is that people deserve at least a second chance (as Street Cat Bob gave him).

Many people who read my blog may have gleaned that, at times, my life has been spent in fairly comfortable conditions: inter alia, living in a Little Venice villa, a penthouse in the former Soviet Union, a villa with a private beach in the Caribbean, a Cornish country house (presently on sale at £7 million) and, as a child, living mostly in good areas of South-East England and Sydney.

The above, however, is only part of the story. There have been far less comfortable situations. One of those was when I returned from living for a few months in Egypt in early 1998. My last salaried legal contract (in Kazakhstan) had ended not long before I went to Egypt. I ran out of money in London (I have never been very good at “bourgeois” budgeting), and acquired some travel money by selling my watch (a Rolex Seadweller; later I had others but at the time, only one).

On return from Egypt to the UK, promised contracts in various countries fell through one by one. I had really no money at all and, at first, nowhere even to stay.

Even after that was arranged (via Russian friends), the next few months were, to say the least, difficult. I walked a lot and, if I took the Underground, may sometimes have forgotten to pay the fare! Even food was in short supply. Certainly I lost quite a bit of weight!

Often I trudged disconsolately past Julie’s restaurant in Holland Park [https://www.juliesrestaurant.com/; https://www.standard.co.uk/reveller/restaurants/julies-restaurant-reopened-holland-park-london-a4230606.html] in the cold rain, stared at by the patrons behind the windows, seated in warmth and comfort…

My own previous visit there, a couple of years before, had been a bibulous occasion when my then girlfriend, swathed in furs and jewels, had insisted on driving her Mercedes home, (with me as passenger— I had no driving licence then), despite her being (at an educated guess) several times over the drink-drive limit. Terrifying. She nearly turned the very large and heavy car over at least once. Thankfully, at that very late (or early) hour, there was little traffic.

Life can certainly have its ups and downs.

Suffice to say that, though I never had to sleep on park benches or in cardboard boxes in the cold Spring of 1998, those three months with effectively no money were hard going…

Adolf Hitler knew the poorer aspects of pre-WW1 Vienna, and never forgot his experiences there.

People who have never known something of the peaks and troughs of existence are at a disadvantage when it comes to understanding people in higher and lower sections of society.

Interesting. I had no idea that Keir Starmer was connected directly with the sinister Trilateral Commission [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trilateral_Commission]. That certainly makes Starmer’s hostility to, eg, Julian Assange more easily understandable.

“Labour” (ZOG) news

German (ZOG) news

The international Jew-Zionist lobby is crowing at the prospect of a 96-y-o German woman being tried and (inevitably soon to be) convicted for having been a typist, at age 18, in a German camp in what is, now, Polish territory or, as the Germans say, “unter polnischer Verwaltung“.

“They” never reach the limits of their desire for “vengeance”, even on someone who was merely a young girl typing in an office.

I was interested to see that comments appended to the (typically pro-Zionist) Daily Mail “report” (propaganda): about 90%, maybe more, of the readers voting were in favour of the persecuted old woman.

So when can we expect 96 y-o American women who were 18-y-o typists at, say, Los Alamos in 1945, to be tried for “facilitating” the attacks at Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Never? Why not?…

…und so weiter…

Some music I recall from when I lived in Australia aged 10-13 (late 1960s):

Vietnam was a constant; some of the young men in my father’s office had to do tours of duty in Vietnam (by reason of the SEATO Treaty); I recall being introduced to four of them at midnight one hot summer night, on Balmoral Beach (the nearest or easiest beach for my family). In prospect was the likelihood, not very pleasant, that I myself, at age 18 (September 1974), might eventually have to go.

As it happened, though, the war had ended by that time, and my family had anyway returned to the UK by Christmas 1970, so I never did have to track through the jungles of Indo-China.

Another constant of the years 1967-69 in Sydney was the hippie influence (in mainstream and commercialized form). I remember this, from 1967:

Fuel shortage

Within a 6-mile radius of my present home, I can think of at least 2 petrol stations that have closed even in the past decade. That may seem a small number, but the number thus remaining is only 4, so a third of them have gone even since about 2011.

Labour Party

The Labour Party has now been retaken by the Jewish lobby and its puppets. Israel has probably spent millions on this. Not that I ever gave much credence to “Momentum” (a pressure group owned outright by a limited company owned by a couple of Jews), or indeed to Corbyn.

Below, Israeli Intelligence and Israeli Embassy official Shai Masot discusses a one-million-pound political slush fund with moneygrubbing expenses cheat and (now removed) Labour MP, Joan Ryan, a one-time head of Labour Friends of Israel:

and, below, Shai Masot again, this time talking to Maria Strizzolo, then a civil servant and one of Masot’s agents in the Conservative Party milieu:

Lisa Nandy marks her own card; openly supporting the former so-called “MP for Tel Aviv” (or one of them). In fact, Louise Ellman is no longer an MP, and is now 75 years of age: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Ellman.

What I fear is that the Boris-idiot regime is just so incompetent and ridiculous that Labour, though a total fake, will be able to come back from near-extinction, bearing in mind that we live under a completely rigged and basically binary electoral system; and then impose a similar and possibly worse regime (though frankly, could it be worse? That is what many voters may think by ?2023 or 2024).

For me, one or both, or all three System parties have to be taken down. Labour is now the weaker of the main two.

I wonder, though, whether voters will flock back to Labour, with its open support for mass immigration, desire to further squash free speech, and with its 2010-style “austerity” programme akin to that of the pre-Boris “Conservatives” (and so on).

Nicolas Sarkozy

When I was (wrongfully) disbarred in late 2016, it was because I tweeted tweets (5 in number, in the end) considered to be too offensive. That despite the fact that all five tweets were entirely truthful, and commented on society and a few politicians. One was about Michael Gove; another was about Nicolas Sarkozy.

Sarkozy, a half-Jew, has now been convicted of corruption (with Jewish businessmen, though you will look in vain for that detail in the linked Daily Mail report…quelle surprise…). As the newspaper report says, his one-year sentence is to be served at his own home! The (((fix))) is certainly in, in France…https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10044901/French-ex-President-Nicolas-Sarkozy-guilty-illegal-campaign-financing.html.

Macron is no better. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/09/on-recent-events-in-france/.

France has had a big problem since the 19th Century; e.g. l’affaire Stavisky in the 1930s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stavisky_affair

It will be recalled that Sarkozy was a leading promoter of the taking down of Gaddafi in Libya in 2012, and that Sarkozy collaborated on that with David Cameron-Levita (another part-Jew). Thus Europe is now flooded with African migrant-invaders, many of which come via Libya. It’s all connected…
