Memory Lane triggered

More memories were triggered when I saw that my one-time home, a house of which I had a lease in the years 2002-2004, has come up for sale for the first time in 55 years: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/105899483#/

I suppose that I could buy it, and its surrounding small estate, were I not short of about £7 million!

I have to say that the estate agents have had the place photographed beautifully:

Funny to think that my present humble home would fit twice, I suppose, maybe even thrice, into the ballroom alone.

Looking idly at the estate agents’particulars, it is clear that there have been changes since I lived there. For one thing, even the main house has been split into no less than 17 flats! I see, also, that two wind turbines now exist somewhere beyond sight of the house.

106 acres. My own lease included only the main house, with 4 acres of gardens, ornamental ponds and Victorian grottoes.

The person who owns or owned the house was the son of the farmer who bought it in 1966 for the land; the farming family never lived there (I think) but built a modern house halfway down the mile-long drive.

I think that at that time far more land surrounded the house, and I was told that, in its pre-First World War heyday, there was an estate of 5,000 acres. Maybe.

I was told when I lived there that the sale price in 1965 was £65,000…but I have now seen an interview which puts the 1965 auction sale price at only £21,500!

The person who owned the house when I lived there was a bit of a scoundrel, locally notorious. His idea (I heard) after my time there ended, was to maximize revenue via splitting up the main house into different rented units. There were already “hippies” living in the stables when I was there.

The man who owned the house prior to 1966 was an apparently very nice man called Leslie Major, whose father had owned the house before him, and who also owned the mill at Lifton, Devon (a few miles away across the Tamar), and which is still a food plant, now owned by Purina.

Mr. Major founded the Devon Bird-Watching and Preservation Society, and wrote on daffodil growing. In the 1930s, he also raced cars.

Sadly, Mr. Major became financially distressed, and sold the house and park to the farming family mentioned (the Tucker family) in 1966, and they were out of place in such a setting: see https://www.scribd.com/document/132741300/Daffodil-Cultivation-in-Cornwall-and-Isles-of-Scilly-Leslie-Major.

I could write a possibly amusing memoir of my time there. Such as? Well, such as the time that it turned out that the “hippies” from the old stables were running a cannabis farm in the attics and, to disguise any interest by the authorities in the electricity used to keep the temperature high, had put an enormous tropical snake in there!

I was told that by the owner one day, after he discovered the “farm” and told them to get rid of the lot (cannabis plantation and snake!). He was a scoundrel of sorts, but more someone who sailed close to the wind rather than an out-and-out villain, and pleasant enough to talk to. A rural Arthur Daley, if you like.

In fact, long after I left, the hippies or others tried it again, as I read in an online local newspaper, I think around 2010. The police raided the place and made arrests, apparently…

In fact, I heard that some “businessman” (who turned out to be a drug dealer) took on the lease, or rented the house, some time after I left. His dead body was found in the drawing room, or so I heard. For the full Agatha Christie effect, of course, it should have been the Library!

It was rather a magical place all the same (and haunted: my wife saw the ghost once or twice, or at least one ghost, I think the young girl noted in this local history: https://www.scribd.com/document/132741300/Daffodil-Cultivation-in-Cornwall-and-Isles-of-Scilly-Leslie-Major).

I imagine that it will be hard to sell (except to someone wanting the revenue stream from rentals of the various houses, cottages and flats). To reconvert the main house would, I am guessing, be rather expensive.

I shall buy a Euromillions ticket. Who knows?…

Tweets seen

A big step forward for Spain.

At one time, in the UK, there were real journalists. They had opinions. They sometimes expressed them. They still, however, reported the news. Now? Politically-correct semi-literates and/or Jewish Zionists. There are a few exceptions (mostly sidelined or not much broadcast or printed). The others form a kind of ZOG-oriented cabal, which does not just include political journalists (most of them), but extends more widely, even beyond the news media, to the wider msm: commentators, even comedians and TV presenters. A corrupt, decadent, and largely self-serving cabal who work to a spoken or unspoken agenda.

Someone should tell, or whisper, that to the “Black Lives Matter” (nonsense) people.

The closure of the majority of the UK’s railway system was indeed scandalous. Beeching and Marples were and remain the obvious villains, but there were widespread closures even before that, both from 1945-1965 and in the interwar period 1918-1939. Indeed, railways were closed even before the First World War. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeching_cuts.

In the United States, the decision was made to keep the tracks even where railways were closed. A strategic defence decision. How much better off would Britain have been had it too done that! New, high-tech rail (ultralight, robotic etc) might have used the same track, or relaid track. Instead, rail lines were taken up and the land, in many cases, built upon.

Interesting article

“Now free us from this crazy dogma: It is high time the Prime Minister allowed the country to begin the long process of recovery from a disaster which his policies are needlessly prolonging, writes Professor ANGUS DALGLEISH” [Daily Mail] https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9510619/ANGUS-DALGLEISH-free-crazy-dogma.html

“Data not dates, the Prime Minister famously said when he announced our ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown. It turns out that there was no road out and no map.

In truth, Government policy is now being driven by nothing more sophisticated than a deranged dogma.

It is dogma of the worst sort, for it is shaped by political cowardice and burnished by discredited scientific advisers who no longer seem capable of reviewing the evidence in front of them.” [Daily Mail]

Boris Idiot

I wrote, before “Boris” was “elected” as Conservative Party leader, that it really did not matter what unpleasant acts emerged about him. He was already known to be a moneygrubber, an incompetent, a constant liar, completely unable to actually run anything, as well as being part-Jew, part-Turk, and rather nasty altogether. So what new scandal could destabilize him?

“Boris” had (and has) weaponized his incompetence and lack of ability. No-one really expects even basic decency from him, let alone integrity, still less the ability to properly fulfil his office. That lack of any public expectation is like a suit of armour for him.

In any case, the Labour Party is now considered so useless by the white British that nothing short of a “nuclear”-level scandal would push them beyond the Conservative Party. Is the present kefuffle that? Probably not.

The wish of that tweeter will come to pass, but in the future, especially the far future.

Amazing covertly-taken film footage (below)

 

The “real world” intrudes on today’s blog, sadly…

In past decades, people would probably have been shouting, writing etc about how a government behaving like this should be shot etc, but today, people are scared of the police arriving at their door at the slightest provocation (e.g. an angry or even simply dissenting tweet, or Facebook post, or remark made in public or even in private).

The non-European real terrorists have over the years symbiotically worked with the Zionists and others who wish to repress our freedom of expression; new repressive laws are in place, the police and courts are becoming hysterical…the net result is that we can have a quasi-tyrannical and completely dishonest dystopian government such as that run by Boris-idiot and his lunatic-in-chief, Cummings, and yet citizens are actually afraid even to say anything really “edgy” about what should be done about it. All one sees are bleats on Twitter, mostly as weak as water.

As to the food story, It may even be that there is an occultic high-Masonic aspect to this: the wealthy able to eat properly, be healthier, as a class or group also ruling over the “pleb” masses eating junk food, pop tarts, pot noodles, fried chicken and McD hamburgers etc. Already, people in the wealthier parts of the UK live about 10 years longer and also longer in good health than those in depressed parts of the North of England. The same is true of the USA.

More about Labour and the Jew-Zionist lobby

I happened to see this https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/labour-expels-member-who-accused-rachel-riley-of-prostituting-jewish-heritage-1.496324

I am scarcely a regular reader of the Jewish Chronicle (it has reported on me over the past decade, though…https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/amazon-user-claims-jewish-lobby-1.18697?highlight=ian+millard)

I suppose that those who are now being expelled from the Labour Party at the behest of the Jewish lobby feel badly about it, but they are really being done a favour. Corbyn had his points, but was terribly weak in fighting back against the Israel/Zionist/Jewish lobby. He never did take the fight to them, and even persisted in paying lip-service to the absurd “holocaust” farrago. McDonnell was even worse. Now, all but about 4 or 5 Labour MPs have signed up to the so-called “International Definition” of so-called “Antisemitism” (in fact adopted so far by fewer than 20 states out of 200).

Labour is a waste of space now. A waste of time too. Why would any real British activist in any case support a party which is now really just for the blacks and browns? A party which supports mass immigration too. We have seen that many former Labour voters rejected Labour in the recent 2019 General Election. Those voters mostly did not vote Conservative; they just did not vote Labour.
