I have in the past criticized on my blog, though I hope mainly humorously, Jessica Simor, a strong opponent of Brexit, an equally strong supporter of the EU, and a one-time candidate for political-joke party, Change UK. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Change_UK].
A fairly typical well-heeled Hampstead pseudo-liberal.
Having said that, I think that Jessica Simor has the right to say or tweet more or less anything she likes on social, political, religious, racial, scientific, or historical topics; as I do, or should do.
Incidentally, Jessica Simor never said a word to defend my free speech rights, neither when a pack of Jews calling themselves “UK Lawyers for Israel”, closely connected to (almost identical with) the “Campaign Against AntiSemitism”, complained about me to the Bar Standards Board, which is now the Bar “regulator”, nor since that time.
As a result of that malicious Jewish/CAA complaint, I was disbarred (as it now turns out, not only wrongfully but actually unlawfully) in late 2016, some 8 years after I had in fact given up Bar practice.
I had not practised law for 6 years prior to the Jews’ complaint (2014), and for 8 years prior to the actual Bar Disciplinary Tribunal hearing (late 2016).
The complaint against me to the BSB was (((typically))) both malicious and vindictive, and aimed at a wider strategy of expanding Jew-Zionist influence and control over all professional regulatory bodies in the UK. A couple of the Jews involved were quoted in newspapers after my disbarment, crowing about their triumph, and about their strategy generally.
The “CAA” Jews have continued to make all sorts of (((typically))) malicious complaints about me over the years, some under CAA aegis, some while posing as private Jewish “victims”. Examples? See, for example, https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/, a malicious complaint against me to tame Essex police, and made to co-incide with that Bar Tribunal hearing. “They” obviously wanted, metaphorically, not only a pound of my flesh but also my blood or, to put it less poetically, to pile pressure onto me, relentlessly (as they hoped).
The CAA goblin responsible for the Essex complaint should have been prosecuted for wasting police time but was not. I suppose he just had to stand a few rounds of drinks down at “the lodge” later. He’s still at it now (see below).
As I said above, Jessica Simor (whom I had thought was herself Jewish or part-Jewish) is now in the gun-sights of the CAA cabal. They do attack Jews, in fact, if said Jews say anything, however slight, that criticizes Israel, Zionism, or typical Jewish behaviour. Jews persecuted by the “CAA” have included, inter alia, the jazz musician Gilad Atzmon, and the journalist Mira bar-Hillel.
So there it is. Jessica Simor and her fellow denizens of the Bar never said a word to defend my free speech rights, but I am defending hers despite that. I am content to occupy, yet again, the moral high ground…
Is that tweeter suggesting that Jews own Hollywood? What a terrible “antisemitic trope”…
He will have the “CAA” goblins on his tail…
I think that I prefer my own analysis (see above, near top).
As I said a year ago, Kim Leadbeater is a useless System-approved drone, who has done (as predicted) precisely nothing for the people who voted Labour in that by-election, which she only won by about 1 point anyway.
“Boris”-idiot has pretty much trashed the chances of the Conservative Party, but I detect no enthusiasm at all in the public mind for the sort of System-Labour represented by Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer, and Labour-label drone MPs such as Kim Leadbeater.
The public are left with no party they really like. Ergo, step in the meaningless LibDems, as “dustbin party”, and/or fake “alternative”. I regret that there simply is no social-national alternative at present.
…and the cross-Channel migration-invasion is only a tiny part of the full migration-invasion by all routes.
Britain 2022— a dustbin full of trash.
Halal and kosher are both cruel and backward habits or customs of —speaking very generally— cruel and backward peoples, but we should not be too quick to cast the first stone: our own European methods of slaughter of animals are also often cruel or brutal. We should do what we can to make the death of food animals much easier, less frightening, less painful, if we are going to continue, as a society, to consume meat.
One notices on Twitter the desperate urge of many to play the “victim”, as in “whine whine, I tested positive for Covid, whine whine“. Some of the Jews on Twitter are really hysterical about it, and some non-Jews are just as absurd.
I never liked Anne Diamond anyway. The sort of person who is (or was) on TV mainly because she knows (or knew) people. Opinionated but not at all educated.
Is he the one who later got so fed up with her that he slapped her, and she called the police? I think it may have been. Somewhere in Oxfordshire about 30 years ago. I think that the slapper (him, I mean, not her) got a police caution for the admitted offence.
I had no idea that Anne Diamond was still alive, let alone still on TV (even if only on GB News which, like most people, I have never watched, even once).
Makes you wonder, about the well-paid (read “bribed”) cretins who retail NWO/ZOG propaganda to the masses.
System-approved drones yap on about “diversity” (which means no white people, or maybe just a few token whites).
Layla Moran, the bucktoothed “pansexual” LibDem MP, who got away, years ago, with slapping, punching, and kicking her then boyfriend. What a load of trash inhabits the Palace of Westminster these days.
Ukraine: latest news from the main current battle area
As predicted on the blog in recent days and weeks, the Russian forces are slowly but surely consolidating their advantage. Once the present battle-area is brought under control, thought can be given to taking and occupying the whole of Ukraine east of the Dnieper.
Claudia Webbe is so thick it isn’t true…Can you believe that a ridiculous idiot like that was ever thought suitable to be an MP? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudia_Webbe. Still, she will be out of the Commons, probably grifting on a lower level, and playing the race card, after the next general election.
As many of my blog readers will be aware, I quite often watch the TV quiz show, The Chase. I do well, I would even say very well, on many or indeed most topics, but fall down on pop/rock music, current “celebrities” and, to a lesser extent, sports.
I saw one Chase yesterday, but the show was from years ago. A young black woman contestant from Birmingham, who knew almost nothing on any topic. Her present activity (at time of recording)? Law student. Her goal? To become a barrister…
There is no doubt in my mind that the Bar has become a kind of dustbin now. That is particularly true of what are often regarded as the lower levels of Bar work, meaning the criminal law Bar and the family law Bar.
Like so many areas of English/British life, the Bar is really running on empty or, to put it another way, living off its reputation from earlier times.
Other areas and institutions “running on empty” in that way? The Monarchy, the armed forces, the Church of England, SIS/MI6 (and probably MI5 too), the BBC and other msm, Parliament, the electoral system, the Conservative Party, the Labour Party, universities (including, and perhaps particularly, Oxford and Cambridge, with their higher expectation), the whole system of awarding of “degrees”, the Foreign Office, the police force etc.
The outward forms are there but devoid, or almost devoid, of content.
There is far less intellectual curiosity generally in 2022 as compared to, say, 1962, 1972, or even 1992. It is a societal shift; the world of the student “snowflakes” is just a part of that.
Repression of free speech comes from a number of sources, though the worst is the Jew-Zionist element. Others? The Muslim/Islamist element is one other, though relatively minor except where the speech or other expression directly impinges on the religious sensibilities of the Muslims. The “antifa” element (largely though not entirely tied-in with the Jew-Zionists) is another, as is the State itself, via its control organs (police, security orgs etc).
Beyond that, there is the almost hysterical perceived need by many, especially the young, for a sense of comfortable and unchallenging mental or intellectual security. The same impulse is behind the ever-inflating exam —including degree— awards. The “everyone gets a First” culture.
“Blacks with everything”
Arnold Wesker, the Jewish playwright, wrote a play (filmed for TV a couple of times) called Chips with Everything, but in the UK, in TV ads, we now have “blacks with everything”. Every ad on TV, bar a few, must have, it seems, a black man or woman, regardless of context. Often, a black man with white woman in a quasi-marital set-up, and with mixed-race children.
Likewise, every “British” TV drama (even one set in the Tudor era, the Viking era etc) has to include blacks, sometimes even as historical characters who were unassailably white European, such as Anne Boleyn. I am told that the apparently popular drama Bridgerton has blacks as well: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridgerton#Historical_accuracy.
The makers usually weasel out of justified criticism by saying that such programmes are fictional, not meant to be accurate historically etc.
I blogged about this years ago: see
but the intensification of the propaganda campaign has surprised me in its concentration.
For example, this evening, I saw an ad break with a number of ads. Only one, showing a white pensioner enjoying a hearing aid, did not have blacks in it. Some of the others were really ludicrous, such as the ad featuring a black woman as a dairy farmer in England! Are there any such? I do not rule out the remote possibility that one exists somewhere, amid the thousands of white dairy farmers.
Another ad I saw, advertising Cornetto ice-cream, had what seemed to be a basically white family sitting on and around a sofa, with a black man tacked on to one end (like a bookend).
As I have said before, that kind of propaganda is now inescapable, and is not aimed at me (aged 65), not aimed at even 30-somethings; no, it is really aimed at children, or anyway those under 20. People whose critical faculties are as yet not fully developed.
The aim is to normalize the mixed-race society. It is all part of the Coudenhove-Kalergi propaganda campaign, “The Great Replacement”, “The Great Reset” etc.
The international conspiracy is playing a long game, but one the urgency of which has quickened now that we are in 2022, the most significant year since 1989.
Ha. Yes. Some of the prominent Jews on Twitter announce from time to time that they “have Covid” and even “have Covid again“. Some only say so because of an inconclusive test, and without even the mildest symptoms. Pathetic.
Anyone who thinks that “Boris”-idiot will voluntarily give up his chances to grandstand at such pseudo-elite jamborees, is not thinking clearly.
Kremenchuk sits between Dnipro and Kiev, on the river Dnieper. The attack, certainly not random, is a clear sign, and perhaps a warning to Ukrainian civilians, that Russian forces are going to move as I predicted on the blog over the past month or so, i.e. northwards from the Sea of Azov coastal zone, following the river, and (once the Donbass and the Kharkov area are secured) northwest and west respectively from those areas, until most of Ukraine east of the Dnieper is secured and then occupied.
“Kremenchuk is one of the most important railway junctions in Central Ukraine (thanks to its geographical position and a bridge over the River Dnipro) and a major river port on the main river of Ukraine.” [Wikipedia]
Here we see the weakness of a structure such as NATO.
“One for all and all for one” (the motto of The Three Musketeers) sounds very gallant, and does provide a member-state with greater security (knowing that all members will pitch in if only one is attacked), but has this weakness: that if a member-state, even a tiny and (dare one say?) insignificant one, picks a quarrel with a neighbouring state (however large and powerful that neighbouring state may be), and if, as a result, the large neighbouring state then takes military action against the little state, all NATO members are obliged to take arms against that large and notionally “aggressor” state, despite the fact that it is the little member-state that has caused the problem.
I do not want to be too hard on the Lithuanians, who suffered much under Sovietism, and during the Second World War, and who were helpless victims of great-power strategic moves during much of the 20th Century, but this latest action by the Lithuanian government could trigger a third world war if allowed to get out of control.
It is also, from the point-of-view of Lithuanian self-interest, an action of stunning stupidity. After all, should NATO and Russia fight in that region, even using conventional weapons, which country is likely to be flattened first? Quite…
Or was this Lithuanian action the result of orders from secret sources in Washington and/or London?
That “guarantee” was in fact worthless: “The British Chiefs of Staff at the time however noted that ‘we could give no direct help by land, sea or air’.” [Wikipedia, citing History Today].
Nonetheless, a mere 5 months after the proffering of the worthless “guarantee”, and when Germany invaded Poland in September 1939, Britain and France declared war on the German Reich despite not being able to assist the Polish government in any practical way.
Stupidity, or malice? At any rate, thus began the Second World War. As for Poland, instead of being invaded and badly damaged once, in 1939 (invaded by Germany from the west, and the Soviet Union from the east), it was later also a battleground in 1944, as Soviet forces pushed west into Central Europe.
I wish not to see Europe, including the UK, devastated by a third massive war, and on an even more destructive scale, but it seems that the political puppets of the NWO/ZOG matrix have other ideas.
I have no idea what the circumstances were, but the tweeter has a point. There are too many jobsworths, too many compromisers, and too many people all too ready, for careerist reasons, to kow-tow to the forces of Evil (posing as the Good), as I remarked yesterday with reference to the fact that not one barrister helped me or gave one word of support when I was (not only wrongfully, but actually unlawfully) disbarred in late 2016: as to that, see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.
There are exceptions, of course, but speaking in broad-brush terms, the blacks cannot create a civilization, cannot maintain one without help and guidance (look at the former colonies) and, all too often, cannot even live in one without being a destructive or nuisance element in society.
“Boris”-idiot runs the government of this country in a shambolic, inept, and corrupt way, just like some fraudulent Levantine part-Jew, part-Turk. Why is that? Oh, no, wait…
As for that weird little Jew, Fabricant, if his claim that he was once some kind of SIS agent (or officer? Surely not?!) is correct, then it does tend to support the view that “British Intelligence” is unfit for purpose.
We are not just facing opposing “ideas” or “policies”, and are not just speaking up for what is right, and/or as a contrary social or political bloc. We are facing new forms of Evil in much of the world, especially the advanced “Western” world. Evil must, eventually, be vanquished directly. That time will come. A titanic battle for race, culture, and civilization.
In a very real sense, we are in the preliminary or preparatory stages of what the Middle Ages might have termed a “holy war”.
“Remote hospital and GP appointments are ‘broadly’ a good thing because they reduce pollution, the NHS‘ eco chief has claimed.” [Daily Mail]
What does he think the NHS is for? To give drones like him a good living?
Idiots like that are risible, on one level, but all the same have real influence.
“Human rights” lawyers
Saw a couple of tweets by some “human rights” barrister (QC, no less, which would have been impressive decades ago, but less so now, when 1 out of 10 barristers is officially ranked as Queen’s Counsel).
Said QC has apparently had death threats (but gave no details), and she apparently blames “Boris”-idiot’s hot air about immigration (which has skyrocketed since he started to pose as Prime Minister) for said alleged threats.
A question for my blog readers: when I was (wrongfully and, it now seems, unlawfully) disbarred in 2016, and at the instigation of a pack of malicious Jews, how many “human rights” lawyers spoke up to defend me? Too hard to guess? All right. How many barristers of any type or specialism spoke up for me?
None. Not one. Not one “human rights” barrister (whether or not holding the now very-devalued “QC” rank label); not one barrister of any specialism. Not one unknown to me, and not even one of those known to me, with many of whom I had been on friendly terms until I ceased Bar practice in 2008.
In fact, a few barristers and wannabee barristers (whom I had never once encountered) even tried to curry favour with the Jews by attacking me, or sneering at me on Twitter, or elsewhere.
Not one “human rights” or other barrister (or solicitor) has, since the events of late 2016, said a word in my “defence” (which I do not need, actually, having done no wrong; indeed, the contrary). Neither has any such lawyer said anything in defence of the free speech rights of others such as David Icke, Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, or others targeted by the small but fanatical Jew-Zionist cabals who have embedded their influence in the UK legal system, with the police, in the System political parties etc.
We are actually talking about a handful of Jews, no more than a few dozen at core, most of whom have mental health problems, out of the ~250,000 Jews in the UK.
Even a few years ago, I was ready to defend the necessity for a reasonably-remunerated corps of advocates as part of a civilized society, and in principle I would still defend that thesis, but now, as for the barristers themselves (let alone the solicitors)!…fuck ’em. Most barristers now are craven creatures, running scared of being thought (and so possibly suspended or disbarred) “racist”, “anti-Semitic” etc; the same is true re. the other contemporary shibboleths, around feminism, the “trans” nonsense etc.
The “independent Bar”? It existed once, up to a point. No more, though.
“Brexit”, “Putin”, “Ukraine”, “climate change” etc, but never the fact that the stupid, crazed, or evil governments across much of the world themselves shut down their entire societies and economies for 2 years.
In any proper European society, that one would be up against a wall, facing a firing squad. Not “capital punishment” but social surgery.
Control of the migration-invasion by a state at war with its white British people.
Ah, slightly reminiscent of the Germany of the early 1920s…
It is a question of degree. In the UK, corruption of that sort has been generally, though certainly not entirely, absent. In places such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kurdistan etc, the corruption is ubiquitous.
“Rishi Khosla…Rishi Sunak...Priti Patel…Munira Mirza…”— Get the drift?
Both “Boris” Johnson and Zac Goldsmith are part-Jew. Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan.
“…one tweet posted by Holbrook in 2020 was singled out by the panel because it ‘could promote hostility towards Muslims as a group’.
The tweet stated: ‘Free speech is dying & Islamists & other Muslims are playing a central role. Who will lead the struggle to reinstate free speech as the foundation of all other freedoms?’
The panel said it took into account the context in which the tweet was made, which was in response to a tweet calling for the Charlie Hebdo magazine to be shut down following the beheading of Samuel Paty by an Islamist. ‘The panel considered that the ordinary reasonable reader would understand the tweet to mean that the Muslim community was to blame for curtailing free speech.’” [Bar Disciplinary Tribunal].
In essence, that Holbrook case echoed mine of October 2016, but in a more muted way. In Holbrook’s case, the msm (especially the Daily Mail) came out in his support, and there was no huge kefuffle about him or his supposed political defaults. The penalty visited upon Holbrook was trivial by comparison. The reason is clear to me.
Holbrook’s tweets mentioned Muslims but not Jews; thus the Jew lobby on Twitter and offline did not have a serious go at Holbrook, whereas I was “crucified” in the msm Press, on Sky TV, online on Twitter etc. Google “Ian Millard barrister” and you will see the difference.
Strange that Holbrook thinks that Muslims in the UK are destroying free speech, when their behaviour, in terms of repression of free speech, is as almost nothing compared to that of Jews.
Or maybe Holbrook is just afraid to see the truth about the Jew-Zionist lobby (and then feel compelled to say something about it…). Holbrook, unlike me, was supported by the usual (and pro-Israel) pseudo free speech crowd: the Spectator, Toby Young and his “Free Speech Union” (free speech unless you say anything about the Jewish lobby…) etc, all of that lot, even Melanie Phillips!
Holbrook himself has blogged about the matter: https://jonholb.com/about/. Incidentally, I see that Holbrook (in common with several persons connected to the present Government), has made the political journey from the Revolutionary Communist Party of the 1980s to the realms of UKIP, Brexit Party or similar: https://jonholb.com/political-career/.
Holbrook may have survived, notionally, at the Bar (and is appealing the £500 fine and the connected determination), but has accepted that his 30-year Bar career is at an end, his chambers having “cancelled” him.
Holbrook is (I presume) too law-abiding and well-behaved to take direct action against those who “cancelled” and/.or insulted him, and is relying on the written word to put his case.
In the meantime, his backstabbing former colleagues, and those who kicked him when down, carry on earning, while he (I also presume) does not. That is his real punishment.
“Cruelty“, apparently, was being threatened with being suspended from the House of Commons for 30 days! Paterson would still be there had he just accepted that mild sanction. He doesn’t know how lucky he is! “A revolution without firing squads is not worth much” [Lenin]…
The House of Commons is an Augean Stables, which at some point —not far off— will have to be cleansed…
Britain is running on empty, and has been for some time. Look at its institutions: Monarchy, aristocracy, House of Lords, House of Commons, Army, Navy, Air Force, the Bar, the msm, the Church(es), the NHS etc.
Are any of the above more than empty shells now?

Of course “Boris” is happy with the migration-invasion. He, though unimportant in himself, is the chosen puppet (in the UK) of the Coudenhove-Kalergi conspiracy, i.e. the plan to eliminate white Northern Europeans and to create a mixed-race population ruled by Western cabals, the members of which are often at least part-Jew, like “Boris” himself.
Heard the BBC Radio 4 News in the car. What led the news agenda? Not the COP26 nonsense, not knife crime in London, not the Swedish autistic and her pathetic children’s crusade, not the UK-France fishing dispute and other problems. No, none of those, and neither was the news about the Ethiopian civil war, nor even about the huge numbers of migrant-invaders now crossing the Channel daily.
No, the main item on BBC News (radio and TV) today is that it is alleged that a cricketer in Yorkshire may have called a Pakistani…wait for it…a “Paki”!” Many years ago, at that. That is today’s big headline!
In fact, it seems that the socio-political operation was successful: the Chairman of Yorkshire County Cricket Club and others have resigned, and the club will now be headed by an Indian businessman called Patel.
That cricket club, until 1992, would not sign players born outside Yorkshire itself! Like bees, any others were considered “exotic”.
Tell me again how the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan is a “conspiracy theory”…
Greta Nut news
It seems that the notorious Swedish autistic has performed her usual petulant shouting act, and has railed about her usual limited repertoire, before “several thousand” [the Guardian] children and others at Glasgow.
Glasgow has a population of 600,000 in the city itself, 900,000+ in the urban/suburban area, and about 1.9M in the region.
Even if all the ~10,000 people on Greta’s march came from Glasgow city (they did not), then that represents, at best, 1 out of 60 people of that city. Or about 1 out of 180 in the wider region.
Not “people power“, as the deluded little puppet seems to imagine, but a tiny minority.
“A PR event“? Pot/kettle…
Scandal. Someone who probably worked hard, for slight reward and for decades, now cannot be seen by doctors or nurses, cannot find a proper place to rest, sees migrant-invaders pouring into the country and getting prioritized ahead of him, and on top of that sees an alien cabal stealing openly at Westminster and in Downing Street.
Gary Streeter was found guilty of an ethical offence when he was a practising solicitor. Better yet, according to Wikipedia, the bastard is a believer in “faith healing“! Just the sort of person to give the public or Government advice on medical matters involving Covid-19 ! Oh, no, wait…
Roberto Fiore…a “blast from the past”. Cannot recall now whether I met him (or not), long ago, mid/late 1970s, about 1978, at the League of St. George in London. Thinking about it, probably not, though I recall the name from either late 1970s or early 1980s.
I like it…
Something I do not like (below):
Migrant-invaders. Many will be criminal, some will be, or will become, terrorists. Almost all the rest will only be (if we are lucky) useless parasites.
The above film (in German, but with English subtitles) came to my attention thanks to a reader of this blog. There have been other films about Ludwig II of Bavaria, notably that of the director, Visconti: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_(film). I saw that film in the mid-1980s, but the original English-language version has been lost. The surviving dubbed versions (in Italian and German) are still available.
Ludwig II: a complex and disturbed person, but who left, famously, two great legacies— his castles, and the works of Wagner, who was supported financially by Ludwig.
What is less well-known (see the YouTube video below) is that Ludwig also did a huge amount to improve Bavaria in other ways, including the fields of education, transport and public sanitation.
Ludwig was one of two people considered as candidates suitable to be anointed as Kaiser of the united Germany. The other candidate was successful, and became Wilhelm II of Germany. The history of Germany and Europe might have been happier had Ludwig been chosen.
Wagner later went on to establish the Bayreuth Festspiel, which still exists (I myself have been to Bayreuth, though not to the Festspiel).
Why not? After all, the same number of hours could be worked; 10 hours per day. In fact, you could even have people work 3 days per week at 13 hours per day, but that might be seen as brutal, despite the great benefit of only having to work three days out of seven.
I daresay that many may question my reposting of tweets by Owen Jones (who is an ideologically-silly faux-“revolutionary”), particularly in view of the fact that he actually tweeted, some years ago, and to sinister Jewish-lobby sex pest and depressive John Woodcock (then a disloyal “Labour” MP, now posing as “Lord Walney”), that “John” should “block that guy [me]— he’s a neo-Nazi” (Woodcock complied, at once…makes one think).
My answer is that I do sometimes repost those whom I dislike or despise, if they make valid and/or accurate points. #MoralHighGround…
The attacks on me did not start in 2014, and did not end in 2017. However, I am still here and, while my Twitter account was closed down at the instigation of the Jew-Zionists in 2018, my blog (started in late 2016) is still up and firing, so far.
As for the fanatics who oppose me, they all seem to be dying…; in fact, a number have already died, I believe. “Instant karma”, or just unconnected karma?
There is a huge attack on freedom of expression across the Western world (in much of the rest of the world, such freedom rarely existed anyway). Most of the attack is by the Jewish-Zionist element.
Contrast that with my own treatment— disbarred, wrongfully, for having tweeted general comments about society and politics (in the end, just 5 tweets!). In fact, all of those tweets have stood the test of time, such as the one about the corrupt little Jew, Sarkozy, and that about Jewish-lobby puppet and expenses cheat, Michael Gove (at the time, I did not know that the little bastard was (or is still?) also both a drunk and a cocaine abuser).
Note: I should add that I was actually quite wrongfully disbarred in 2016. Not my assertion alone, incidentally.
In fact, the Bar Standards Board wrote to me a couple of years after my “trial” in 2016 to offer me a “retrial” (new hearing), because I should have been “tried” before a 3-person Tribunal panel (which has no power to disbar) instead of a 5-person panel (which does have the power to disbar).
I decided not to bother with a new hearing, partly because I thought that, had it gone back to Tribunal, and had I then been found “guilty” (such terminology is not in fact used), I might have been fined, and had no money with which to pay any likely fine. Maybe I was wrong. Still, I may change my mind, just to spite (((them)))!
Further, since the notorious Henry Hendron cases, it has been accepted that a barrister not holding a Practice Certificate both at time of “offence” and time of Tribunal, cannot be “tried” at all by the Bar regulation system, let alone disbarred. I myself last held a Practice Certificate in 2008, six years before the Jews (“UKLFI”) made their complaint against me, and two years before I joined Twitter.
As said above, I may decide to have the notional disbarment deleted, just to make the point, though obviously (?), at age 65, I have no wish to return to the practising Bar (which is now a dustbin full of trash anyway).
Readers might like to note also, that (contrary to what they may now read about me, as tweeted by a few crazed and fanatical Jews on Twitter) when I was at the practising Bar, I was mentioned favourably in the main legal directories, and was commended for my legal expositions, on several occasions, by judges in the High Court and County Court. As people say today, “just saying…”.

You can see where this is going: to get your (2022? 2023? later?) “Covid Social Passport”, you will have to get a monthly or three-monthly injection of useless rubbish. If you refuse to have it, or if the State thinks that you should be “denied” it (for the wrong opinions, or for dissident activities) then no injection, which = no right to travel, work away from home, get State benefits (because unable to attend DWP interviews etc), use shops, use NHS facilities, get medical or dental treatment, participate in public political activity etc. Effectively, house imprisonment, and a lingering death, ultimately….
This is not far from the Book of Revelation “mark of the Beast” scenario…

The tightening of the screws of the new British police state. It’s pretty much in plain view now, as is collaboration of the members of the corrupt “three main parties” cabal in the Houses of Parliament. NWO. ZOG.
A mouthpiece of the System (with a side order of controlled opposition), nothing more.
I first posted the above clip about 6 months ago, and then wrote that, “Good grief! Someone sent me the clip below. I knew that Lammy was/is a deadhead, and in fact I have been meaning for a long time to add an assessment of him to my “Deadhead MPs” series, but…well, see for yourself!” and “People will say, “oh, but he is a barrister, has several degrees etc”…yes, and one of the most stupid (and ignorant) people I ever met was a former Sierra Leone diplomat, a High Commissioner to the UK when in London, and ambassador to some other state. That African had degrees from one of the most famous English universities, one from the Sorbonne, one from either Harvard or Yale (I forget).” Then I added, “Imagine Lammy as either Lord Chancellor or Attorney-General! Still, now that Keir Starmer is running what is left of Labour into the ground, such appointment is unlikely.”
The most obvious box-tick is the number of blacks and browns in leading roles: the captain of the nuclear submarine Vigil is a black, while the medical officer on board is an (?) Indian woman. Ashore, about half the Scottish (Glasgow) police detectives are non-white, and of the two main MI5 officers in the drama, one is seemingly Pakistani or something else.
Another box-tick is that, of the two women police detectives, the older one, a grieving quasi-widow, has a lesbian affair with the other. Well, such things happen, and there are, no doubt, both Glasgow detectives and naval officers (and MI5 personnel) who are non-white. In such proportion, though? In every TV drama?
A few other points about Vigil caught my attention. The GRU officer caught in Glasgow was interviewed about a murder (in which he was the only obvious suspect) without a lawyer present (despite having asked for one), and apparently without having been cautioned, and the interview was plainly not being taped (as far as I could see). At least three serious breaches of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984, aka PACE. Not very good for a “police procedural” type of drama.
Again, the GRU [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GRU] officer under diplomatic cover, caught in Glasgow in activities “incompatible with his diplomatic status”, did not, on being caught, immediately proclaim his diplomatic status (and so immunity); neither did he demand to be released at once, or to have contacted for him the Russian Consulate, as a real one would have done.
Not that such “demands” are always treated respectfully. When I myself was arrested (or as the Egyptian army and secret police said repeatedly, “not arrested”) in Alexandria in 1998, and held for about 11 hours by Egyptian Army intelligence/security and then the Mukhabarat (secret police), I asked repeatedly for the British Consul, only to be told (also repeatedly) that I was “not arrested”, but just “answering a few questions“, or “a fewmore questions“; also, that “the Consul will be very busy…“, and “the Consul is only for the most serious cases…you do not want to be treated as a serious case, do you?“…
Still, and despite the foregoing, Vigil is not bad, and I shall probably see that last episode today.
In a sense, execution is too quick for those and similar monsters. The best thing that can be done to prevent such crimes is to ensure that such creatures cannot be born in the first place.
Quite. A silly fellow making a pointless and silly (and ahistorical) protest, but why should he not be allowed to do so? The present Home Secretary is an ever-more ballooning Indian woman of surpassing stupidity, incompetence, and ignorance (as well as being, effectively, an agent of Israel). Put that on your placard, you idiot!
More idiots. These ones are so ineffective and ridiculous that they cannot even be said to be “controlled opposition”. Just 5-minutes-of-fame (15 would be too long) political bad jokes. The Monster Raving Loonies are at least amusing when they show up.
What horrible ugly alien monsters.
I do not know what is more disturbing, that half-Jew office bully Raab is spouting “woke” nonsense, or that someone who has attended both Oxford and Cambridge universities, and is —even if ludicrously— presently Lord Chancellor, does not know the meaning of the word “misogyny”. Another sign of the times?
I suppose that one could take issue with the first part of Griffin’s tweet: it was not the State ownership of the means of production that crippled socialist economies, but the fact that the State, the political sphere if you like, operated companies etc, in other words made all the important decisions. Admittedly, in many such cases that will be the same as “ownership”.
It is noteworthy that Jews in the UK are among the most fervent supporters of Covid vaccination(s) and vaccines, the facemask nonsense, and all the repressive measures introduced by this crazed government of clowns since early 2020. I am not sure exactly why that should be, but it is a fact that I have noticed. Also, the pro-EU hard-core “Remainers” seem to be facemask zealots etc. Again, hard to see why, unless it is a wish to not have to think for themselves. Preparation of future karma?
Sometimes, I can see why people less polite than me want to kick in the heads of some members of the Parliamentary monkeyhouse… The sheer cheek of many MPs infuriates many members of the public and —in my view— rightly so.
Admittedly, £81,000 is not a fortune these days, especially when taxable etc, but bearing in mind that average UK pay is only about £31,000 (and the median far less even than that, and less again if those dependent on State benefits and pensions are included), I doubt that many will think MPs are hard done by. Even less so when one considers how many have other sources of income, such as second jobs, “consultancy” “work”, money from scribbling or being TV talking heads etc; not to mention the very many who have large monies via inheritances.
Many MPs are also buy-to-let parasites.
In the end, MPs are volunteers. If they think that they are worth more than £81K p.a., let them go and get it on the open market. Few can do so, which is why so many are found sinecures in state employment, or in quangosw (via cronyism) when they lose their seats.
When the cross-Channel migration-invasion started in earnest a few years ago, even I was slightly sceptical at the idea that the Royal Navy, Border Force etc were “providing a shuttle service” for these unwanted guests. No longer. The conspiracy has become impossible to ignore.
If, every single day, dozens and often hundreds of migrant-invaders set to sea from the Channel coasts of France, knowing that they will probably be “intercepted” a few miles off the French coast and then brought to the UK, they are not people unexpectedly caught out at sea; they are migrant-invaders, and the Royal Navy, Border Force, RNLI and others are not only providing what amounts to a shuttle service but are part of an enormous scam in which the victims are the British people and their children’s futures.
Nadhim Zahawi…a Kurd, posing as a British government minister. In that part of the world, Kurdistan, as in India, Pakistan etc, nepotism and cronyism are rife. Import the natives from those countries, and you also import their nepotism, corruption, greed and so on…Is that so hard to understand?
Exactly. I have seen it even in my limited sphere of influence.
First, the Jew-Zionist lobby attacked my Amazon UK reviews (I was in the top 50 of reviewers, out of millions). One or two obsessed (and pseudonymous, of course) Jews started to troll my reviews (all of them), from about 2010, by leaving comments about me being “antisemitic” etc. Then they got the Jewish Chronicle interested. It wrote about my reviews and pressured Amazon UK until Amazon deleted a third of my reviews (not selectively, just at random). Finally, by 2018, my remaining reviews were hidden from view.
At the same time, my reviews on Amazon USA were simply expunged suddenly. No appeal, no rights. So much for the Jew-dominated “land of freedom”…
[erratum: an earlier draft had “Silverman” as “Slitherman”. Still, if the cap fits, I suppose!].
Previously, in 2014, similar and connected Jews (a large degree of overlap), calling themselves “UK Lawyers for Israel” (UKLFI), and including the self-publicizing “reputation specialist”, “Mark Lewis Lawyer” (the official complaint was made under the signature of a Jew QC), had made a complaint against me to the Bar Standards Board: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/. That resulted, in late 2016, in my being (wrongfully, and indeed unlawfully) disbarred, some 8 years after I had actually ceased Bar practice.
This activity (and “they” themselves) constitute the largest single problem that the UK has. Infestation. Destruction of all freedom of expression on socio-political and historical topics.
The enemies of free speech should seriously consider what might happen if all, or effectively all, dissident speech or publication is effectively forbidden.
I suggest that those who disagree with the above buy (as can be done) a set of “A” Level papers from the 1960s, 1970s, and even 1980s (any subject) and place them in front of a school student of age 16-18 today…

Incredible, but perhaps significant: at such a moment in world history, the West is under the overall figurehead command of an American President who seems not only to be suffering from dementia, but has (apparently) to wear anti-incontinence pants…
The Powers of Evil must be rubbing their hands as the Western ruling circles put into play the NWO/ZOG agenda for the 33 years from 2022-2055, built partly around the “Covid-19” fear campaign. Still, all things are yet possible.
War has been declared on the peoples of Europe, but so far the enemy forces have suffered few casualties. So far.

In Sydney! When I was at school in Sydney (1967-69, nearly 3 years), you scarcely saw a policeman! In fact, the police had fewer powers to enter private property even than had the UK’s police forces. That was then. Australia now has twice the population, and has become a rather dystopian emergent police state, partly by reason of the “panicdemic”, partly because the population is now very mixed, racially and culturally…
So far, I have only heard one person say to me that they have watched (on TV) the “virtual” Olympics. One solitary person.
Amber Rudd, now politically washed up, was a talentless “ho”, who inherited a great deal of money, and “knows the right people” (both characteristics common to many in the David Cameron-Levita regime); her daughter, Flora Gill, the offspring of the ghastly A.A. Gill, may call herself “journalist”, as so many do these days, but she is an even less talented “ho” than her mother.
She did “a master’s degree in race and ethnic relations at Birkbeck, University of London” [Wikipedia]. I wonder whether she was taught (nonsense) by Jew Zionist Twitter troll @bengidley (aka @inthesoupagain, @antinazisunited, @bobfrombrockley etc)?
“She was selected as the Labour candidate for Leicester East for the 2019 general election. Her selection resulted in the resignation of the Constituency Labour Party chair, who described it as “a fix”, and some in the local British Indian community were angry that one of their candidates was not interviewed. Webbe was elected with a majority of 6,019. This compared with a 22,428 Labour majority in the seat in 2017.” [Wikipedia].
I suppose that if you were to call Jews, blacks, South Asians, even Roma Gypsies or Irish tinker “travellers”, “a terrible race” who should be restricted to one child per family, you would probably soon find the Jews (especially) or others making malicious complaints to the police or others about you; you might even find yourself a defendant in court, charged under some Mickey Mouse law such as Communications Act 2003, s.127. Not, though, if the people described are white British people, and not if the person saying the offending words is Bill Oddie, or Jo Brand, or some Jewish talking head or scribbler…
Incidentally, Bill Oddie is not exactly sharing a hutch in one of the new “British” neo-slum areas with a poverty-stricken multikulti population. No, he lives in Hampstead, where the negative effects of the multikulti society can be insulated-out by those with enough money.

The type of eccentric (?) G.K. Chesterton [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._K._Chesterton] would have liked. Chesterton wrote about “good Christian inns“. Incidentally, has Chesterton become an unperson now? True, he sometimes talks about Jews and “n******” in his Father Brown stories, so maybe that is the problem the msm have with dramatizing them. All the same, I do not think they have ever been properly filmed for TV. Rather like Raffles, and other stories, by Hornung. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A._J._Raffles_(character). Hard to film credibly.
Stephen Pollard, Editor of the Jewish Chronicle, disliked what a tweeter previously unknown to him had written (tweeted) about the very obvious Jewish influence and control over the Labour Party (under puppet-leader Keir Starmer, though it was equally true under Blair and Brown).
So what did Pollard do? Accept an opinion on Twitter as “free speech” or “freedom of expression on matters political (etc)”? Oh, no no! He turned snooper, found out that the tweeter was an accountant, then took it upon himself to write to the chief of that person’s firm, in order to get the tweeter sacked (which, it seems, was what happened).
Pollard seems to have had no regard at all for the possibility that that tweeter might have others dependent on his earnings. Well, what does one expect from “them”, really?…Compassion? Hardly…and for a Jewish supremacist, criticism of Jews is the worst imaginable crime, bar that of actually noting the fact that an individual is Jewish…
Pollard actually is a straggler in that regard. Alison Chabloz was sacked a number of years ago from her job with a German cruise line after she was stalked and harassed by a certain Jewish woman from North London, and others. It was after that persecution that Alison Chabloz became noticeably or more “anti-Semitic” online, in fact.
Come to it, I myself was disbarred in 2016 after a pack of Jews made complaint against me (in 2014), based on some tweets I had tweeted. In my case, I had left the practising Bar in 2008 anyway (so in reality had no job or profession to lose), but even knowing that did not stop “them”. Oh, no no…they wanted their pound of flesh. Not just my disbarment, but the msm publicity that followed. Pour encourager les autres. Subtlety is not their metier, in most cases.
Anyone unaware of the matter can just google “Ian Millard barrister”! At least for the msm story. The Jewish Chronicle (under Pollard) also featured my disbarment.
As for the tweets that had me disbarred (after an impeccably fair-seeming but actually completely rigged process), they numbered only five in the end. They were all true, and have all stood well the test of time.
For example, I called the then President of France, Sarkozy, something like “a corrupt gesticulating little Jew”. The most recent news I heard about the little bastard (in fact apparently only a half-Jew, so I was wrong to that extent) is that he was on trial for corruption alongside a Jew businessman…
Oh, and one of my other supposedly “offensive” tweets was about Michael Gove, to whom I referred in some such terms as “a pro-Zionist, pro-Jew, expenses cheat“. All true of course. At that time, Gove had not yet been publicly exposed as a cocaine abuser and drunk. He was even filmed drugged or drunk in the House of Commons a couple of years ago; swaying and staggering! In 2016, only his cronies in the Westminster Bubble knew about all his long-term cocaine abuse (especially when he was an influential journalist, paid well by the Lugenpresse or, if you like, Judenpresse).
Actually, I am waiting to see why his (I think part-Jewish) wife, Sarah Vine, is divorcing him. More drink and drugs? Women? (seems unlikely). God knows what will emerge…
Sarkozy, Gove, and others (of a far lesser prominence). It’s almost as if those whom I dislike come to premature or bad ends. Co-incidence, no doubt.
Again, nothing much to be added to that, except that that very slender Conservative Party win (another by-election, in 1959) was on different constituency boundaries.
Another accurate tweet.
Could that be because the voters feel that they have had no real choice?
As for Sky News, their figure for yesterday’s turnout was wildly wrong. Real turnout was about 42%…
More about Hartlepool later.
That Jessica Simor (((person))) seems to have little political nous; was a candidate for the always-doomed “Change UK” short-lived party, and gives me the impression of someone who seems to think that she takes the moral high ground. The air in Hampstead seems to have that effect on some of its residents. Oh, no, wait…https://order-order.com/people/jessica-simor/.
I enjoyed especially her tweet about how others have “unbelievable silver spoons stuck in their mouths“, which is often true in the UK (as elsewhere) but comes awkwardly from a woman who attended St. Paul’s Girls’ School and St. Catherine’s College, Oxford, followed by both City University and Kings’ College London!
Seems that some members of the Bar can, e.g. swear prolifically at people on Twitter without (Bar) censure, yet I —who only tweeted fivecompletely true and accurate tweets on political and social issues— had to be disbarred to placate the Jewish lobby: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/. Oh, and the great “human rights” barristers at, inter alia, Matrix Chambers (which Jessica Simor co-founded in 2000), said and tweeted not a word in defence of my rights to socio-political expression.
I was also surprised that the Simor woman, in one tweet in that Guido Fawkes report above, renders “I could make neither head nor tail of it” as “I couldn’t make head or tale of it.” That’s no more than semi-literate.

Yes. My mother-in-law (aged 99) was recently in hospital for a fracture. After 2 weeks under the hit or miss care of the NHS, she was routinely tested for “Covid-19”. Positive. She had no symptoms. Obviously picked up the virus in the hospital. Was discharged a week or so later. Had she then died from any cause, even in a car accident, she would have become another “died within 28 days of a positive test” statistic. The whole thing is a ludicrous misapplication of statistics and propaganda.
Sadly deluded. A student or ex-student who would have been more at home in Blair/Brown days, it seems.
Ha ha! How could this unthinking young Labourite miss the 4 years of Jewish-lobby bile against Corbyn? Every day, and on every msm platform! I am not even a Labour supporter (or member, or voter), and it was unmissable! Plots, conspiracies, legal cases…Labour Friends of Israel MPs and the rest.
Conservative Party first with 51.9%; Labour second with…28.7%. That’s the headline, of course.
Interesting to note that the eligible electorate is over 70,000. Of those, only 29,933 turned out to vote, and only 8,589 voted Labour. About 12% of the entire eligible electorate.
The demise of the LibDems was confirmed (again): 7th place, with only 1.2% of the vote (349 votes). The worst-ever LibDem result in the constituency, by far. The LibDems got 4.1% last time, in 2019; in 2017, only 1.8%, and in the 2015 meltdown, 1.9% (2010, 17.1%, but in 2005 they got 30.4% and 2nd place, and in 2004, which was another by-election, 34.2% and another 2nd place, that time only 6 and a half points behind the winning Labour candidate).
The 3rd, 4th and 5th places at Hartlepool were taken by an Independent, Sam (Samantha) Lee, a local businesswoman and former local journalist (note: local…), who achieved a creditable nearly 10% of the vote, then “Heritage” and “Reform UK” parties, effectively UKIP/Brexit Party offshoots. 1.6% and 1.2% respectively. Green Party took 6th place, also with 1.2% of the vote.
The Northern Independence Party, which I thought would get around 5%, in fact attracted only 235 votes (0.8%, 10th placed) and looks washed-up already. I had thought that their concept might prove attractive to many “up North”. Seems not. Not so far, at least. Rather unimpressive also that they are so disorganized that they failed to register in time with the Electoral Commission, so their candidate, Thelma Walker, a former Labour MP, had to stand as Independent. They might have done better under their real banner.
The remaining eight candidates were either Independents or crank-party candidates, and only one got more than 0.5% of the vote.
What does this result mean, in the wider sense? Firstly, that Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer is too colourless to make any impression at all. Part-Jew chancer and fraud “Boris” may be corrupt, incompetent, and unfit to be an MP, let alone PM, but he has (carefully-cultivated) presence, a fact recognized by the huge Munich-style effigy of him that appeared at the by-election count. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnival_in_Germany,_Switzerland_and_Austria#Alemannic_Fastnacht
Reminiscent of Berlusconi in Italy a number of years ago, or of some banana republic.
As I have blogged before, Keir Starmer has nothing to offer the people, and nothing to say except “I was the Director of Public Prosecutions!”. Nothing to offer. Nothing at all. As some wag commented on Twitter a while ago, were the “Conservatives” to open workhouses in the manner of the Dickensian age, Starmer-Labour would be there to agree with the policy, but say that it should be run more efficiently and slightly more fairly…
Then we recall Starmer on his knees, with dim deputy Angela Rayner, not so long ago, professing fealty to the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense. That must have played well in Hartlepool, which has a proud, if poor, English/British history…
The problem Labour has, though, is not Starmer but its own identity and role. As I have blogged before, the System parties were all products of the 19th and early-20th centuries (taking the LibDems to be an extension of the old and once-governing Liberal Party).
Somewhere like Hartlepool may look superficially similar to what it did in 2010, 1997, 1980s, even 1960s, but the social changes in the UK have been huge. No large nationalized industries. Few manufacturing industries at all. A growing atomization of the individual in society. Lessening “community”. Growing socio-political volatility. Insecurity. The Internet. In places such as Hartlepool, a considerable drug problem to add to the traditional drink problem.
The old parties have no answers, and not even any questions, about all of that. What Hartlepool and many other places want, perhaps without knowing it, is social nationalism. A new socio-national community to replace the old forms of community that are now all but gone.
Look at that by-election: not one social-national candidate, not even from the joke “parties” such as For Britain or Britain First. The voters wanted rid of Labour. If you like, “Problem— get rid of fake Labour; Method— vote fake Conservative, or stay at home and watch fake reality-TV shows”. Apathy and abstention was enough to sink Labour, as in 2019.
Short and sweet (and true).
She’s right (for once). Where (I apprehend) she is wrong is in impliedly saying that Labour did better in 2017 because of Corbyn. Partly-true maybe, but had UKIP not taken 11.5% of the vote in 2017, Labour, though still in front, would have won by only about 5 points.
It was not always thus. I have never been a Labour member, supporter, or even voter, but many Labour MPs up until the 1980s were decent British ex-workers, others were at least reasonable intellectuals of sorts. I might not have agreed with all they said or did, but they had integrity, most of them. Now look! Since, say, 1989, freeloaders, careerists, expenses cheats, fakes. Jess Phillips, Ruth Smeeth (now binned), Patricia Hewitt (gone), Mandelson, the whole pack of Blair/Jew lobby MPs. Many are still around, unfortunately.
Look at Williams, the Hartlepool candidate that Labour put up: a medic who preferred to “get ahead” as an MP; formerly failed in another constituency; wanted to become a Police and Crime Commissioner too. Rather “dodgy” generally; pro-EU, pro-Jewish Lobby. Never trust a doctor who becomes a politician. A good rule of thumb, by the way.
“During the by-election campaign, Williams apologised for a tweet he posted in 2011: “Do you have a favourite Tory MILF? Mind-blowing dinner table conversation”. He was defended by Starmer, while Labour peer and former shadow Attorney General Shami Chakrabarticalled for him to be replaced “immediately”. Williams’ campaign featured a pledge to return hospital services to the town, but was accused of hypocrisy after it emerged that he was a co-author of a clinical commissioning group report which recommended the closure of those services in 2013.” [Wikipedia]
A social-national party, were one allowed to exist at all in what is a society of increasing socio-political repression, might not be “voted in” —because the (((System))) would probably make sure of that— but would be a way of gathering support for an attempt to seize power by any other means.

A pretty silly tweet. Corbyn, whatever his faults, was at least as “electable” as Starmer, but that is, well, not very…and the tweeter ignores the 4 years of Jewish propaganda carried on against Corbyn, on a daily basis, and on every single msm platform (and many online too).
Every single one of those MPs is either a Jew or a Jewish-lobby puppet. Expenses freeloader and anti-Corbyn plotter Tom Watson has not only been given the very well-paid sinecure previously occupied by Michael Dugher (another puppet of “the lobby”, now head of a betting organization) but is even getting paid non-political TV appearances. As people say, “ker-ching”…
Two stupid tweets for the price of one. They would probably like that Nigerian bigmouth, Femi Oluwole [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole], still posing as a political activist while living in his affluent parents’ attic, to be Labour leader! Don’t laugh too quickly! Of course, by then Labour will be about as popular as the LibDems are now…
For “British media”, read “Labour Party members”…
Maybe, but probably not. Had Corbyn done that, the Corbyn candidate would have got about half, maybe more, of the Labour vote at Hartlepool, but even taking that as maybe 25%+ (half of 50%+ as in the past), that would still be a close contest if the Conservatives were not also challenged by (as in the past) a Brexit Party or similar; which would probably still result in a Con victory…
System politicians rarely start new parties, mainly because few succeed. One of the few that might have done was Enoch Powell. He just might have gathered enough support from Conservative voters and others (eg National Front voters) to get a bloc of MPs. He decided, though, to reprise Parnell [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Stewart_Parnell], who controlled a bloc of pro-Home Rule (Irish Independence or autonomy) MPs in the 19thC; Powell thought to do that, on a smaller scale, with Ulster Unionists. Never got anywhere. He was too tied up in traditional thinking. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enoch_Powell.
If that was indeed Powell’s strategy, it was based on faulty thinking (surprising, in someone of Powell’s intellect): Parnell controlled around 90 MPs in the late 19thC; Powell could never have hoped for that with the Ulster Unionists.
In fact, that 2015 poster was one of the better Labour attempts. I suppose that the very silly tweeter hates the “control immigration” bit…but the migration-invasion and encouragement thereof was one of the aspects of Corbynism that appalled many voters…
Listening to PM for the first time in quite a while, heard an interview with Ben Houcher, the Teesside Mayor. Not very impressive in terms of content, but full of confidence, and his electoral result speaks for itself.
Then came an interview with three Labour activists. Not very interesting, though I agreed with their point that “Boris” is “an act” (as they put it), “supported by a sycophantic mass media“. Also true. None openly called for Starmer to go. They really should…
The most interesting thing heard was from the presenter, Evan Davis, in the Ben Houcher interview, who expressed the idea that politics in the UK is “going beyond Left and Right“. Well, I have been saying that for years, decades even. Always the Cassandra, usually right but rarely listened to…
Good to see.
Typical (?) UK Labour supporter of 2021: “ Historical novelist, THE SEA GATE out now. UK publisher of GRRM, Hobb, Lawrence, Feist; ex-Tolkien publisher; gardener. Married to a Berber chef. #CFC#Chelsea...Location Cornwall/Morocco”…[https://www.janejohnsonbooks.com/].
Not that she is entirely wrong about the influence of the mass media, but she completely fails to see that the Conservative Party won Hartlepool not because the eligible voters were supporters of the Conservative Party and/or finance-capitalism (egged on by the msm) and voted accordingly, but because out of 70,000+ eligible voters, only about 8,500 went out to vote Labour.
Why? Because Labour is useless. It is now once more completely in the pocket of the Jew/Zionist/Israel lobby, and its MPs are mostly worthless chancers, expenses blodgers, and/or careerists; many of them (especially but certainly not exclusively the blacks) are also as thick as two short planks. Also, Labour scarcely opposes the Government at all, but supports it, or cavils at unimportant details (Keir Starmer was, after all, best known as a prosecution lawyer who became DPP).
The Conservative Party did not win Hartlepool— Labour lost it.
Incidentally, that lady “@JaneJohnsonBakr” is a director of HarperCollins publishers: https://www.janejohnsonbooks.com/about/. Whatever her ideological leanings, I think that it can probably be surmised that she does not have the financial struggles common to most of the voters of Hartlepool, and it sounds as though she is far from them in terms of outlook, as well.
I do not think it unfair to say that there we have Labour’s problem in a nutshell. It can get the (apparent) support of a presumably rather affluent lady who, with her Moroccan husband, splits her time between her houses in Cornwall and Morocco, but it cannot get the support of over 60,000 of the 70,000 struggling English voters of somewhere like Hartlepool…
Here’s another of the lady’s tweets, expressly contemptuous of the British people:
I wonder whether she supported Tony Blair’s government?…
Not that she is wrong about “Boris”, of course; and the people are easily fooled, that’s true.
