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

Worth reading that thread. Interesting both from the historical point of view, and from the scientific-medical perspective.

“Boris”, of course, has repeatedly said that this would never happen. Has that part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer ever told the truth?
Kermode is just one example, perhaps typical, of a certain type of person favoured by the msm, especially the BBC. We must eventually have a massive cultural purge in the UK: the BBC, Sky, ITV, comedians, TV people, ad agency people etc. An Augean Stables situation.
I have never met either of the above people, am not hugely interested in either, and am not (as such) biased in favour of either, though in the interests of “transparency” I suppose that I should add that, in the 1990s, I did know someone who had been friendly with Clapton and his Italian then girlfriend.
Usually-reliable sources report that, though still incarcerated at Bronzefield Prison (near Heathrow), Alison is in excellent spirits.
Alison has apparently just been transferred to a different wing of the prison. She has a cell of her own, which contains, inter alia, a new mattress and a television which receives 30 channels, as well as all UK radio stations.
Alison’s cell door remains open all day, she can come and go as she pleases, and can shower, or go out for fresh air, whenever she wants.
One amusing point: it seems that a prisoner recognized Alison from last year and that, as a result, Alison was introduced to a number of other prisoners, who asked her to perform her songs. This resulted in what perhaps could be described as a general “sing-song”, the prisoners singing along with Alison. Pity that it could not have been filmed and distributed on social media. That would have made “you know who” (((s))) fume!
In other Alison Chabloz news, her upcoming trial has been deferred to a later date. It had been set down for today, 1 September 2021, with a time estimate of one day. That date was vacated recently. Now it seems that the trial will be held on a later date, if the matter proceeds at all.
News from the “panicdemic”
So only a third or so of the people of Europe are awake.
So much for the Gulf Arabs. Just useless and cowardly hypocrites, whose micro-“states” do not deserve to survive.
Better idea than saving a statue— get rid of those individuals, groups, and types who want to destroy our history, race and culture, and are working towards our annihilation.
37,000+?! How many “interpreters” etc did the UK have in Afghanistan? This is just more migration-invasion. I reluctantly agree to the evacuation of a relative few ex-collaborators and their families, on the ground of honour and loyalty (they could perhaps be funded to make a fresh start outside the UK, and outside Europe, in a more suitable region and jurisdiction), but not to this nonsense.
On the wider point, the Western allies have deserted many of those who worked with them in Afghanistan. The USA, as main component in the occupation, has shown itself to be unreliable and, indeed, disloyal. A matter which may prove to be a strategic error of large proportions.
Kate Ferguson, who is apparently Westminster Correspondent at the Sun “newspaper”, and who apparently does not know that the phrase she is trying to use is a variant of “…and with one bound he was free”… I mean, this is not some ignorant pleb tweeting. Oh, no…wait…
Yet another unintended comment on the state of British “journalism” and “journalists” today.
There are few considered more anti-Israel or “antisemitic” than me, but credit where due— this is, on the face of it, a tremendous achievement.
The “virus” fall-out
The various Government measures to mitigate, not the virus but the Government’s own policies in relation to it (“lockdowns”, “tiers”, quarantining, etc) bought off real popular opposition last year. The Government took a leaf from the book of Aneurin Bevan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aneurin_Bevan], who said that he had bought off opposition from medical doctors to the establishment of the NHS by having “stuffed their mouths with gold” (i.e. allowing senior doctors (“consultants”) to take on private work as well as receiving relatively high NHS pay).
“Furlough” payments ensured that, in 2020, many received effectively the same pay as before, but for no work (“furlough” was capped at 80% of net pay to a maximum of £2,500 p.c.m., but that was close to 100% for most, when the costs of just having a job are factored in: travel, snacks, drinks, clothes etc).
Many others were able to “work from home”, which might have had disadvantages for some but many advantages for others: no travel costs; a saving of (?) 1-5 hours of travel on the day, depending on the commute; the possibility to organize the day to suit the employee; no “boss” people supervizing the employee directly, or able to see what the employee is doing during the working day.
Naturally, the higher-paid working from home would have been, and are, in a better position than the lower-paid: perhaps large detached houses, perhaps also with swimming pools, tennis courts, large gardens in which to relax etc. One could imagine some, working in between swimming, and perhaps drinking Chardonnay ordered online and delivered to the door (I seem to remember that, even nearly 20 years ago, Sainsbury’s would not only deliver my wife’s orders, but actually take the stuff into the kitchen for her).
Also, companies started to demand Government help. Even those run by tax exiles such as Richard Branson. Some help was given.
Not everyone was taken care of by Government largesse. The self-employed, thhose running the smaller and one-man companies etc. The majority of the population, though, was shut up in both senses by Government order and Government money. Even the unemployed (etc) on Universal Credit, got a £20 a week increase.
Now, however, after much to-ing and fro-ing, we find ourselves back in “lockdown”.
Once again, the furlough is extended. Once again, failing businesses are, in some cases, being propped up, smaller airports among them. For how long, though?
Today, we heard that Newquay Airport (which I myself used a few times in the past) will be given money. I do not know whether other airports I used to use, e.g. Exeter and Southampton, are in a similar position.
Let us examine what might happen. Let us say that “the virus”, whether because of natural decline, the vaccine(s), whatever, disappears some time in 2021 from the UK. Air travel will take a long long time to recover, especially if countries are to insist on quarantines and “virus-free” certification. Will UK airports, airlines, ground services etc need or demand propping-up for years? Is that even possible?
We read that the UK Government can borrow money at very low, almost zero, interest at present. Good, but for how long?
We now read that the Government wants to reduce Universal Credit by £20 a week, while chucking those currently on it £500 in cash. There may be a revolt by Conservative MPs, and a possible Government defeat in the coming days.
The argument over UC payments presages coming disputes. No matter how much can currently be borrowed by the UK Government, eventually that will become unsustainable. What then? Already, State benefits paid to the unemployed are at their lowest since 1992 and, according to other calculation, overall benefits were not this low in real terms since the 1960s, which however was a era of, effectively, full employment.
The present government cannot simply, say, raise the State Pension (“Old Age Pension”, as was) entitlement age from 66, where it will be from 2022, to he age of 67, or 68, or 70, not without a massive backlash from voters aged over 65, and they are a half of all Conservative supporters: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-politics-47909281. They are also far more likely to vote.
In other words, if the present government hits the pensioners or those looking at shortly becoming pensioners, it is toast.
The Government is looking at the unemployed and others as targets because they are less significant electorally, though at the same time, 40% of UC claimants are actually not unemployed but are in low-paid work.
Unsurprisingly, Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak is not going to introduce a windfall wealth tax. He wants to extract money from the poor or poor-ish, while not dooming his party electorally.
What about demand in the economy? Already low. The poor spend all or almost all of what they have; they have no choice. The rich, given extra money, invest it, often in hedging assets: property, savings accounts, gold etc. It makes sense to give more to the poor and less to the rich (however defined).
Once the various mitigation measures tail off, unemployment —and discontent—– will soar.
One can see storms coming. God grant social-nationalism the way in which to take advantage of them for the good of the people. “For the good of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].

Meanwhile, the USA has concentration camps today, both at Guantanamo and elsewhere, including secret ones. The inmates are in many cases treated as badly or worse than were those in WW2 Germany, or even the Soviet Union’s GULAG operation. The American concentration camps have doctors too, as does the CIA.

Or, with apologies to Orwell, “nigger” [etc] = bad language, but “gammon” = OK language…
Surprising, perhaps, that Andrew Neil put it that way, but then again he is very much pro-Jew and pro-Israel, and ranted a few times on TV (on his now-defunct late-night BBC2 show) about “Nazis”, “racists” etc. Demeaning (to him); it takes the gloss off his being the best political interviewer in the UK.
The “new” politics (since the 1960s), now everywhere…
In the end, it will have to be confronted…

Peter Hitchens makes, once again, a good point, but fails to point out that the present Kiev regime, posing as the legitimate overnment of the Ukraine, is a complete Jewish-Zionist sham. All the top ministers are Jewish, and at least one is actually an Israeli!
“The whole point of the law is its cool impartiality, its judgment of the facts by a jury, and of the law by an impartial, dispassionate judge. If judges are going to start offering politico-medical lectures from the bench, it changes us into a completely different kind of country. In effect, a defendant in such cases is on trial for his opinions, not his actions.
Does Judge Matthews desire such a state of affairs? I doubt it. In that case she should not do this again. But I fear someone else will. Much that we used to know and trust about this country is vanishing with amazing speed.” [Peter Hitchens, Daily Mail].
All very true. Part of the problem is that “District Judges” (the old stipendiary magistrates) are not, in the traditional sense, real “judges”. Mostly solicitors who have applied for these rather simple jobs, which however pay quite well (I think that a full-time DJ gets about £110,000 p.a. now).
Anyone English or British who tries to indoctrinate British children with “BLM” nonsense and poison is poisonous, and an enemy.
@toadmeister this is a school in Richmond. You and I have spoken before as I wanted my child to go to WLFS. Any advice as to how to tackle this, as it appears you cannot object to BLM or identity/woke politics without being accused of something dreadful.
To all those suggesting I home school or remove- what good is this? I can protect the mind of my own child but not the hundreds of other kids by doing this. They are our future and the society my own child will have to live amongst. This is not something I can fight alone.
I think so too, but it is a long time since I practised at the Bar, and I was certainly never a specialist in the construction of statute law, or in the validity of “advice” or regulations purportedly made under secondary law and/or primary law.
Quite. Also, while we are on the subject of American (government) behaviour, I have been struck by the hypocrisy of “the West” over the events in Belarus.
AsI have blogged previously, Belarus is, in effect, a dictatorship, though a far better one than many which the West supports with words and arms (inter alia, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar), not to mention China.
I daresay that there is discontent in Belarus, arising mainly from economic conditions, as well as those factors arising from relative lack of political freedom.
Having said that, the Western msm has been overplaying the “brutal tyranny” stuff. I hear on radio, see on TV, read about the repression of the discontent. Some people obviously have been badly treated, beaten etc. However, I also heard that some of those detained, and some who were ill-treated, were in fact released within hours, in some case a day or so, of having been detained.
In addition, some of the protesters themselves have admitted that the Belarus KGB and police were unwilling, generally speaking, to hit or brutalize women and old people. They obviously have some moral or ethical principles. European standards.
Compare that to how the USA often treats those whom it detains or abducts: “waterboarding”, i.e. cruel torture (in one case done dozens of times a day to a prominent prisoner, for reasons of sadism); hooding for hours, days, even weeks; cruel restraint techniques; use of attack dogs etc.
The names of the American “facilities” or concentration camps (those not still secret) are notorious: Guantanamo, Bagram, Abu Ghraib. Things were and perhaps are done there that have not been claimed even of the Soviet GULAG system, or during the German rule over Eastern Europe in the early 1940s.
Most ex-professional soldiers (in peacetime) who become MPs turn out to be useless.
To me, who was in Australia (Mosman/Cremorne, Sydney, NSW) for 2-3 years as a child of 10-13 (1967-69), it is incredible to see what a police state Australia has become. When I was there, the whole country had only 12 million people (it’s 25 million now). It was a white European-origined population, mostly of British ancestry. Now, very mixed. Result? You see it…
It occurs to me that Australia is being used as a laboratory, and its people as lab rats. Mixed population now (they have even imported Africans!); then made to fear “the virus”, with strict “lockdowns” and facemask police state-ism and all that nonsense.
Meanwhile, Australia has entered its first economic recession for about 35 years…
Why? Because the msm is basically controlled or very strongly influenced by the NWO, ZOG, and the associated Jewish lobby. That’s why…
“The Government has no legal right to impose the severe and miserable restrictions on our lives with which it has wrecked the economy, brought needless grief to the bereaved and the lonely and destroyed our personal liberty.“
“This is the verdict of one of the most distinguished lawyers in the country, the retired Supreme Court Judge Lord Sumption.
He said last week in a podcast interview: ‘I don’t myself believe that the Act confers on the Government the powers that it has purported to exercise.’”
“He was referring to the Public Health Act of 1984, the basis for almost all the sheaves of increasingly hysterical decrees against normal life which the Health Secretary Matt Hancock has issued since March. I promise you that it is not usual for a retired senior judge to use such language in public.
This 1984 Act was drawn up mainly to give local magistrates the power to quarantine the sick.
Nothing in it remotely justifies these astonishing moves – house arrest, travel restrictions, harsh limits on visiting family members, interference with funerals and weddings, closure of churches, compulsory muzzles, bans on assembly and protest.
English law just does not allow an Act of Parliament to be stretched so far.” [Peter Hitchens, quoting Lord Sumption, Daily Mail].
…and just in case you still imagine that you live in a “free country”, the Daily Mail has tipped the wink to its readers: “Sorry we are not currently accepting comments on this article.” Quite. That would be going too far, would it not? After all, some of the comments would be about ZOG and NWO, and even “the Great Reset” etc…

SNP and Scottish independence
I have always found the SNP idea of Scottish “independence” odd. Free Scotland from Westminster and England, but not from supranational bodies such as the EU, NATO (probably), the international banking matrix, or the UN.
Also, what kind of nationalism is it that says that a Pakistani born or even simply living in, say, Glasgow, is more “Scottish” than a white European, say English but with Scottish or part-Scottish ancestry, and who may be living in England, maybe only on the border at Berwick on Tweed?
If Scotland departs, then it will be considerably poorer than it now is. Money is not everything, true, but the only benefit I can see to Independence is the right to stop mass immigration etc, and the SNP policies indicate that their intention is the opposite.
Having said that, if the majority of Scots want to pull away from the Union, then I say go with good wishes, so long as you do not become an enemy state.
Thoughts about the public mood in the UK as a government of clowns tries to act like a conclave of petty tyrants (forget “statesmen”)
We have seen the government of clowns first frighten the public out of its skin, then beg members of that public to return to work (muzzled on trains and buses), and we have seen all the other contradictory policies of a government that obviously has no idea of what it is doing; abetted by a non-Opposition that really just echoes the Government.
We also see much about how many people have got used to not going to work because paid as much or nearly as much (and in net terms, maybe more) to stay home and work online, or furloughed (paid by State benefit). Now we see others than Peter Hitchens telling people off for staying home etc, when the real culprits are the Cabinet of Boris-idiot, the ludicrously-misnamed “SAGE” committee, most MPs, and the compliant msm.
The fact is that the economy is crashing to a halt or at least a low point, all so that a virus which is not killing people now, can be confronted (and so that the Government is not exposed as totally incompetent).
Today, msm reports are that 3,300 people tested positive for “the virus”, and the number that died from it was…5. Not 500, not 50, but 5.
Resistance is growing.
Rename it: “Operation Bullshot” is a good name for it.
Below: the Jew Shapps tries to fool the public once again.
Maybe the Duchess could be shown the place where they train the dogs to detect bullshit.
Where are the public on this? I detected (look at my blogs posts from as long ago as April or even March) that the public mood was by no means gung-ho to return to work etc, even discounting the fear factor so incessantly whipped up by the government.
My view was and still is that people would like a better way of organizing the work-life balance. Less work, or less frenetic work, more leisure or at least other, more personal work, nearer to home.
I have, in earlier blog posts, postulated the idea of “a society of measure” to set against both the existing (pre-virus) frenetic workaholic society and also against the 1960s idea of the “society of leisure”.
In practical terms, that could mean people working fewer hours per week, or the same number of hours per week but on fewer days, such as 10 hours a day for 4 days per week, or even 13 hours per day for 3 days per week, leaving 3-4 days per week for other activity.
My view is that there should be one day a week when all or almost all shops etc are shut. That creates rhythm in the society.
A start must also be made with Basic Income, even if at first that Income does not cover even all basic necessities.
I think that the public, as individuals and families, are ready to consider other forms of societal organization. If paid work (talking about persons employed by others) occupies 3-4 days per week, and if a measure of Basic Income exists, people will be free to start businesses of their own in the remaining 2-3 days (with 1 day as “day of total leisure”).
This is not just pie in the sky. J.K. Rowling has written about how it was only the relatively more generous “welfare” arrangements of the 1990s that enabled her to sit in cafes writing Harry Potter. It was not that more money was given, though that might also have been true in real terms, but that she was not harried by DWP staff constantly (as her equivalent would now be under a system which was made far harsher by the part-Jap Iain “Duncan” Smith and the Jew “lord” Freud and others).
Because J.K. Rowling was not harried by petty bureaucrats, she was able to write her first bestselling book, which has created a huge industry for this country: books, films, spinoffs.
My sense is that people generally want a society which is less pressured.
As for the “measures” taken by government, most people are now rather sceptical, but the constant msm propaganda (esp. but not only on the BBC) is keeping some fear instilled too.
I have no idea whether Johnny Mercer had some decent intentions when he applied for selection as a Parliamentary candidate but it is surely clear now that he is basically a woodentopped moneygrubber and a waste of space.
