Diary Blog, 31 January 2021, including support for a dissident barrister

[me as barrister, 1992]

Many readers of this blog will be aware that a malicious pack of Zionist Jews (by name, “UK Lawyers for Israel”) procured my disbarment in late 2016: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

In fact, I had ceased practice in 2008 anyway, so that little charade was merely a Schauspiel for the public and msm.

Anyone interested in the msm view of the matter can google “Ian Millard barrister” to find what the Daily Mail, Independent, Sky News etc had to say to their misled readers and viewers. Incidentally, the Press photo of a headless barrister, implied as being me, was of someone else: I have never smoked cigarettes, and always had better shoes than had the barrister in that picture!

I was disbarred, expelled from the Bar, because I had tweeted, as part of my private life (I had no professional life after 2008), tweets (in the end, only 5 in number, out of at least 150,000 tweeted or retweeted) deemed “grossly offensive”.

My “grossly offensive” five tweets were general comments on society and “our” corrupt MPs, and were not addressed to any other tweeter. One, for example, called Michael Gove something like “a corrupt, pro-Jew, pro-Israel expenses cheat”.

It will be noted that my description of Gove was in fact entirely accurate and true! Truth is no defence in the age of (Zionist-controlled) msm “wokeness”. In 2016, I was, along with the general public, unaware that Gove is or was also a cocaine abuser. The snivelling little bastard only admitted that a couple of years later, when about to be exposed anyway.

However, my aim today is not to rehash my own unjust disbarment, but to speak up for another barrister whose head is on the block.

One of my own several observations about my own experience of being subjected to a “show trial-lite” is that, after it happened, I did not see one barrister speak up either for me or for freedom of socio-political expression.

I am blogging about my disbarment etc not only because the injustice should be known about, but also and mainly to support freedom of expression.

I do not know personally that other barrister now in trouble; in fact, I have only today seen his name for the first time. Jon Holbrook.

Holbrook’s profile at his chambers (which have now disowned him, i.e. bowed to external pressure) is still extant on the internet at time of writing, and says: that “Jon’s practice covers public law (including community care & court of protection), housing and property (including service charges & general management).”

After twelve years at Garden Court Chambers and two at Hardwicke Building Jon joined Cornerstone Barristers in 2006. He is described as ‘terribly good – you get a QC service when you go to him’ – Chambers & Partners 2017.”

Jon Holbrook is consistently praised in the legal directories for his intellect, advocacy and affable manner. Chambers & Partners describes Jon as “tenacious, extremely able and knowledgeable”, “a man with an affable manner” who “presents advice well to lay clients, allowing them to quickly make informed decisions” (Chambers & Partners 2013).”

Jon is listed as a leading junior for social housing and public law in Chambers & Partners (2006 to date) and as a leading junior for administrative and public law in the Legal 500 (2005 to date).

In 2005 Jon instigated the formation of the Social Housing Law Association (SHLA), an organisation he chaired until 2008. He is a SHLA representative on the Administrative Court Users Committee.

Jon was General Editor of the Housing & Property Law Review and Consultant Editor of the Journal of Community Care Law. He has also written on a wide range of legal issues which can be found under the publications tab.

Before being called to the bar in 1991 Jon was a local authority housing advisor and tenancy relations officer for Westminster City Council.“[Cornerstone Chambers website].

I am writing this blog on a Sunday. I daresay that, by Monday or Tuesday, the above will have disappeared from the website in question, and Jon Holbrook will have become an “unperson”, in the Orwellian term.

There are now voices calling for Holbrook’s suspension or disbarment. His now-former chambers have expelled him already.

https://thecritic.co.uk/cancelled-by-my-barristers-chambers-over-a-tweet/
I have been expelled from my barristers’ chambers because of a tweet. During my fifteen years as a barrister at Cornerstone Barristers and thirty years at the bar, I had an unblemished professional record and was top ranked by legal directories for my work – particularly in public law. And yet my one sentence tweet on a platform designed to be polemical has ended this particular career.

Snap

tweet regularly: identifying myself as a barrister, but never as a member of Cornerstone. In fact, I had two accounts, the other identified me as a member of Cornerstone and was used for professional purposes. And yet, a thirteen-word tweet on my political account has caused me to be expelled from my professional workplace.”

Snap…(except that I had but one Twitter account, and never identified myself in my profile as barrister (or in any of the “offensive” 5 tweets, though the Bar Standards Board lied outright about that in its public statement of 2016).

I notice that “Secret Barrister”, a prolific tweeter who has also written a bestselling book on the collapsing UK justice system, had called for Holbrook to delete at least his particularly-objected-to tweet.

I have no idea of the identity of “Secret Barrister”, but he or she may be Jewish, or at least connected with the Jewish element.

I note that a whole group of barristers on Twitter have gathered to attack Holbrook’s tweet.

Below, the actual tweet in question:

Now other barristers prolific on Twitter are tweeting, casting their stones:

…and “antifa” and other “useful idiots” are joining in, as usual:

…and note that Nadine White, a black woman who scribbles for Huffington Post and is described as “Multi-award winning journalist leading @HuffPostUK‘s coverage of race“, is plainly ignorant about the fact that, in England, a set of barristers, aka “chambers”, is not a “law firm”. Just another example of the pervading ignorance around. “Journalism” now is as contaminated and effectively dead as the Bar…

Others, however, are tweeting in support of free speech. Shamefully, though, few if any are barristers. The Bar is now full of cowards too frightened to challenge either political correctness or the Jew-Zionist element. The whole idea of the independent Bar —and independent-minded Bar— is now something in the past, dead.

I shall rejoice now at news that any barrister has been bankrupted or impoverished, whether by reason of the “lockdown” shutdown or by reason of government spending cuts. Screw the Bar as it is. It does not deserve to survive.

Ah, Holbrook, where was Douglas Murray when I was disbarred? He is paid, in effect, by the Jew-Zionist lobby (not that he does not sometimes say correct things). Where was Toby Young and where were all those “free speech” people when I was disbarred for having tweeted (truthfully, at that) on socio-political issues? They were all afraid of the Jew-Zionists, and/or in some cases paid by them.

Until you recognize the (((core))) of the problem, you cannot tackle it.

Incidentally, there were a few actual barristers (apart from wannabees and pupil-barristers wishing to score brownie points by joining in the attack on me a few years ago) who went out of their way to kick me (on Twitter) when I was (as they imagined) down. A few were gratuitously rude and insolent. They are not forgotten…

As a matter of fact, I do not recall Holbrook himself tweeting in support of me in 2016 or later. Oh, well, I suppose that I shall just have to take, once again, the moral high ground…

For once, I agree with Jew-Zionist barrister Myerson, who was obsessed with attacking me on Twitter and elsewhere for years. When I was a barrister, especially when I was doing criminal cases (among others), in the early to mid 1990s, I had numerous defendants who were West Indian, African, various “browns” etc. I always did my best for them even when I disliked them and indeed thought that they should not be in the UK (whether born here or not).

That old-style Bar ethic is now in danger of being lost.

The mentality…someone who would kill a beautiful and harmless giraffe, and take pleasure in it, or even pride…

Why why why import Africans to Australia? I can only ascribe it to evil traitors in government and msm; that, and a stupidly somnolent mass population that is more interested in winning brainless team sports across the world than in protecting their own race and culture from migration invasion.

Diary Blog, 24 July 2020

One of the aspects of the present madness that interests me is not only how supine half of the public has been, but the extent to which the kind of people most rebellious, and also vocal about “rights”, in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, are now the most eager to submit to State authority: the “socialists”, “Left-wingers” (I myself disparage such “right”/”left” terminology, though), civil rights activists etc.

Don’t believe me? Look on Twitter. The kind of people in the categories just listed are all but begging to be “locked down”, monitored, tested, traced, masked, muzzled and generally told what to do, when to do it, and what to wear while doing it.

As I have blogged in the past, the degeneration of that part of the body politic is palpable.

You see it in other ways too: the wish not to leave the EU, because the EU (they imagine) will control things, control them, lay down rules for everything…

Again, you see it in the wish to be subject to the arbitrary constraints of Twitter and other online platforms; and the allied wish to “report” those whose views dissent from the shibboleths of the Twit-pack.

Such people are also the most fervent supporters of the muzzling of the population…

Below, two tweets about the latest Jewish or anti-Corbyn legal activity:

Mark Lewis cannot be “disbarred”, because he is not and never has been a barrister, though he is a solicitor and (at least as yet) not struck off.

I have blogged fairly extensively (mostly in 2018 and 2019) about Lewis and his conspiratorial, unhinged and disgraceful behaviour:

Have a read of the above. Lewis was and is aware of everything I wrote about and against him; his Jew-Zionist friends and allies monitor my writings obsessively and have done for years: Lewis himself has been obsessed with me for years, since 2011 or 2012, and has plotted against me for all that time. Lewis has never sued me, though; indeed, he has never even threatened to sue me, despite everything that I have written, but has tried to strike at me covertly. (((Typical))).

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

The other Jews in the Mark Lewis/”Campaign Against Antisemitism” etc cabal(s) are aghast that Lewis and his clients cannot extract both flesh and blood from Corbyn; here below, fanatical Jew Zionist David Collier:

The tweet below made me laugh! I dare say that even Lewis himself might be (albeit bitterly) amused by it.

Even Lewis’s enemies often tend to accept him at his own valuation (and self-publicizing) as so-called “top lawyer”; yet at the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal in 2018, those judging him were told by Lewis’s own Counsel that all he owned were a mobility scooter, a private pension worth £70 a week, and his own clothes! Even discounting the usual tendency of Jews (cf. Ghislaine “Maxwell”) to play the Jewish “victim” when caught out, I doubt that Lewis has millions (or anything much) salted away.

Below, some interesting quotations:

Of course, the “Jew who dislikes Jews” is a not-uncommon figure: in the historical past, Marx for one, who wrote to Engels “I am in Ramsgate; nothing but Jews and bedbugs“; through those figures cited in the tweet above, and on to the anti-Zionist Jews of today such as Miko Peled and Gilad Atzmon.

Yet another MP sex scandal. Almost normalized now. This particular idiot is apparently unsure whether he prefers girls or boys, so ineptly tries to have it off with both.

What still astounds me is the sheer mediocrity (at best) of so many MPs these days. So few have even a modicum of education, culture, or real belief in anything at all, let alone any genuine desire to serve the country or their constituents. Just trash, really.

When I became aware of the existence of Rob Roberts (about an hour ago), I was wondering whether he would make a good candidate for my Deadhead MPs series on this blog, but sadly he seems (judging by his Wikipedia entry) to have nothing interesting about him at all. Nothing. See for yourself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rob_Roberts_(politician)

Coronavirus panic/scam

In the local authority area where I live (a quite large area of nearly 300 square miles in coastal and near-coastal Southern England, rural and semi-rural, with a few small towns and villages), the population is about 180,000 people. The “R” number has been varying below 1 and 2 (ie. number of cases per 100,000 population). In the past week, 1.8. There have been, therefore, about 2 or 3 confirmed new cases in the past week. Out of 180,000 people…

When you consider that only one out of dozens, perhaps a hundred, new cases will die from this condition, you can see that, in this particular area, perhaps one or two people are likely to die from “the virus” over the course of the next year! Sad for those people and their relatives, but not repeat not a reason to shut anything down, nor to make the population wear facemasks.

This is, thankfully, not the Plague.

The tweeter above, “Sarah Deech” or “@londonette”, is the daughter, I believe, of “baroness” Deech, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Deech,_Baroness_Deech, a Jewish woman who, when my “case” was being “investigated” by the Bar Standards Board from 2014 (the case having been brought against me, in effect, by “UK Lawyers for Israel”), was not only the Chair of the Bar Standards Board but also a Patron of…UK Lawyers for Israel!

By the time that the case came up before the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal, it having been decided that my (in the end, only) 5 supposedly “grossly offensive” tweets (out of between 150,000-200,000 tweets and retweets!) merited my being “tried”, “baroness” Deech had in fact been replaced by a different Chair, though only by a former UK Amassador to Israel, who was extremely pro-Israel and extremely pro-Jewish interests!

I raised the question of perceived bias (in the decision to take me before a Tribunal) at the hearing itself , but the (generally reasonably fair) retired Circuit Judge chairing the 5-person panel told me at least twice that whatever the merits of my claim that the decision-making process was flawed (because, as I submitted, “justice must not only be done but be seen to be done” and “no man can be a judge in his own cause“), it was not relevant , because what mattered was the justice of the hearing itself…

With all respect to that judge, I disagree. If a person is only “tried” because a biased process decided that he should be tried, then he is on the back foot from the start, no matter how “fair” the hearing is.

The above, in my view, is so even if “baroness” Deech took no part in the decision to haul me before the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal, though I find it hard to believe that she was, at the material time, unaware that an organization in which she was a major figure (UK Lawyers for Israel) was complaining officially about me to another organization which she headed and for which she had responsibility (the Bar Standards Board).

As a matter of fact, the hearing in October 2016, though generally fair in the way it was conducted, was wrong about, inter alia, whether my five tweets (the Jews had originally complained about many dozens!) were in fact “grossly offensive”.

Take the one about Michael Gove, in which I truthfully described the little bastard as something like a pro-Jew pro Israel expenses cheat. ALL TRUE (I was unaware at the time that the bastard was also a cocaine abuser and drunk!): https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/726458/Barrister-Ian-Millard-disbarred-anti-Semitic-tweets-Michael-Gove-Nicholas-Sarkozy

In fact, I could have appealed the findings of fact and/or the disbarment penalty, but, having ceased Bar practice in 2008, eight years before I was “tried” and disbarred, it would have been almost pointless. I did not care, though it does deprive me of being able to lunch at my (former) Inn when in London, which is a nuisance; I rarely visit London these days anyway.

Actually, the BSB did write to me a couple of years after I was disbarred, saying that I should have had the right to challenge the allocation of my case to a 5-person panel instead of a 3-person panel (only a 5-person panel can disbar) and that I could do so if I wished. I could not be bothered and so did not take that up.

I wrote about some of the above here: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/ and may blog in greater detail at a later date.

Finally, I took a look at the composition of the present BSB (the actual governing board): 13 members (a coven? Only joking…), out of which 3-4 Jews. The kind of disproportion one sees everywhere.

https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/about-us/how-we-regulate/our-governance/our-board.html

One of the present Board was actually an unsmiling “bookend” on the panel at my own “trial” in 2016, though I see no point in identifying her.

Censorship

[above: David Icke, not the so-called “leading academic”]

The “leading academic” is one Daniel Allington, who describes himself on his own blog as a “computational social scientist”, so not an academic lawyer or human rights specialist. He is a “senior lecturer in AI”, and does not have a professorial chair. Oh, and he is “Head of Online Monitoring” at the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] too. The latter is the Jew-Zionist organization which has been conspiring against me and others (to name a few: David Icke, Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner) for years. See: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/ and https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

The “CAA” describes Allington’s piece in the Sun “newspaper” as an “op-ed“, meaning a piece of opinion commissioned by the newspaper (sometimes unpaid). The term was first in use, I believe, in the Jew-infested New York Times (“all the news that fits”…), and the New York Times “op-ed” page was once described by Presidential candidate Pat Buchanan as the “Amen Corner” of the newspaper, because the scribblers were all Jew-Zionist neo-cons pushing the Israel First interventionist foreign policy line.

This is yet another attempt by what one might call “ZOG” and/or the Jewish lobby to destroy free speech, both online and offline. (((They))) have been pushing this for 60 years now, at first (of course) re. print media, now re. Internet publishing too.

As for the Sun “newspaper”, Rupert Murdoch has always been even more pro-Israel than most Jews (he himself is said to be part-Jew), and the Sun “newspaper” is and always has been slavishly pro-Israel and pro-Jewish lobby.

It is beyond ironic that Allington got his nonsense printed only in the Sun, long notorious for its invented “news reports” and other trash. There again, perhaps Allington simply does not quite “get” irony…

Some tweets seen

I would not normally repost anything from the unpleasant “Hope Not Hate” Jewish lobby group, but this is worth brief perusal:

So UKIP goes from bad to worse. The quite large quasi-System party “controlled opposition” of years ago has slid inexorably into Monster Raving Loony territory. There was an “interim leader”, some lady called Pat Mountain, and who was (as UKIP leaders since Farage have all been) as thick as two short planks; now this. An Indian with a faked-up CV, who is “libertarian”, and who wants to work against “Nazi” ideas and against “holocaust” “denial” (historical re-examination and revision). Just mad.

UKIP was always a bit of a joke, and was never social-national, but this surely takes the biscuit! I don’t know why the “Hope Not Hate” snoopers are making fun of this Vachha person, though. He sounds not so far from them in some ways, ideologically. Maybe he will join them.

A Joseph Rowntree report. Possibly worth reading:

The police will probably not catch these degraded individuals. Only Karma can bring justice. They will be punished.

We often underestimate what even one human being can achieve over time. It has been said that many people overestimate what they can achieve in a year, yet underestimate what they can achieve in 10 years. Look at Adolf Hitler. In his first year as political leader, he achieved comparatively little. Even nine years later, in 1928, his party received only 2.6% of the national vote. However, by 1932, that had increased to 33%; the following year, the vote was 44% and he was able to take on full powers of rulership.

[makes you think…]

Tom Watson

Well, as I predicted last year would happen, the Jewish lobby has found a well-paid sinecure for former Labour Party deputy leader, Tom Watson, who was notoriously in the pocket of the Jewish lobby, as well as being a relentless expenses cheat (until the system was slightly reformed, he was even blagging £500 a month on expenses —without fail— for food alone!)

Now I read that Watson has been appointed Chair of UK Music: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UK_Music. Another “Labour” ex-MP entirely controlled by the Jewish lobby, Michael Dugher, was CEO until recently. Dugher is now the head of another body, to wit, Chief Executive of the Betting and Gaming Council (((BGC))).

In fact, I just discovered that, several years ago, around 2013, Tom Watson was “personally involved” with the (20 years younger) Stephanie Peacock, who was at the time trying to become a Labour Party MP. I do not know whether the affair continued, or continues. She failed in her first attempt to get into the MP racket, in 2015, but succeeded in her second, at the 2017 General Election, having been selected (by the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party, i.e. not by the local party) only a week before the election, for the —then— safe seat of Barnsley East. Oh, and guess who was, back in 2013, Chairman of the Labour Party NEC? That’s right…Tom Watson.

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnsley_East_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

Now, Stephanie Peacock retweets posts by the Jewish lobby “Hope Not Hate” crowd. Once you start digging through the compost, you see that it is all (((connected))).

The first picture above is certainly accurate or at least plausible; I myself saw scenes like that (usually minus the lady) in Rhodesia, when I was there in 1977.

The Japanese, while quite impressive in some ways, indulge in habits which may or may not be harmless but which we (as a “nation”) do not do: buying used schoolgirls’ panties from vending machines, overnighting in coffin-like transparent capsules, washing before getting into a bath etc. I put the wearing of facemasks into that sort of category.

I noticed that long ago. Thus it is that the Twitter mob mostly favour “lockdown” as well as Remain; also, internet “regulation” (aka “censorship”), harsh laws against any expression of freedom re. the migration-invasion, “holocaust” “denial”, and so on.

Burnley aerial banner

The young hero who organized the recent “White Lives Matter” aerial banner has been sacked from his job at a factory. “Long live freedom”. Not in the UK!

There is little or no real freedom left in this country. The young man’s girlfriend has also been sacked. Guilt by association? True, we are not yet shot or chucked into labour camps in the Stalinist way, but the slope is there and getting slippery.

Oh, and here is part-Jew “prime minister” Boris-idiot with the same Jew businessman, who seems to be sporting an Eton tie (lefthand photo below), though he did not attend Eton (he went to a local authority school in North London: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ%27s_College,_Finchley#Notable_former_pupils). Boris Johnson (who did attend Eton) is not wearing an Eton or OE tie).

Tweets seen

Now why would Keir Starmer, new leader of the “Labour” Party, be so unwilling to attack the behaviour of pissant Robert Jenrick of the “Conservative” Party? Could it because both are in the pocket of the Jewish-Zionist-Israel lobby, both have Jewish wives (both of which are lawyers, too!), and both have half-Jewish children that both are bringing up as Jewish? Answers on a postcard…

Oh, and the Conservative Party donor and businessman (property vulture, publisher of porn etc) involved, and who gained £40 million by Jenrick’s corruption, is a Jew. What a shock. Not.

Indeed…

The ones who are kneeling are craven traitors and/or careerists.

I would say that the evil Indian woman noted by Nick Griffin, below, an academic at Churchill College of Cambridge University, is another “traitor”, were she British, but of course she is not. She is an enemy of the British people, living here and spewing poison against us.

Diary Blog, 20 June 2020, including thoughts about Twitter and Katie Hopkins

[above: a sentence which the censors of free speech, and the enemies of Europe’s future, should consider]

Katie Hopkins

It had to happen. The censorship and hypocrisy pervasive in the whole society is magnified on Twitter.

On Twitter, white (i.e. European, or Aryan, or post-Aryan if you like) people are always in the wrong, unless they “bend the knee” (literally or metaphorically) in sign of fealty to those of inferior race and culture.

There is, of course, a double standard on Twitter. The blacks and browns and— a fortiori— Jews are allowed pretty much free rein. White (i.e. European or European-origin) people can be “suspended” and/or “permanently suspended” (they mean “removed”) quite easily, especially when packs of Jews (or those effectively controlled by Jews) gang up against them.

That is what happened to me in 2018. I joined Twitter in 2010 but tweeted almost nothing until 2011. The Jew-Zionist pack on (UK) Twitter targeted me after I tweeted something about a BBC Radio 4 Today Programme piece about the “restitution” scam, whereby Jews whose ancestors owned property (buildings, houses, gold bars, Old Master paintings) in Central or Eastern Europe in 1930s (sometimes procured by the Jews via fraud and outright theft) have such property (or money in lieu) “restored” to them.

Basically, the governments of various European states end up paying money to the Jews in “compensation” for what was expropriated from the Jews’ grandparents or great-grandparents. All claimed to be an outcome of the “holocaust” farrago (in fact most of the property was abandoned when Jews left Germany, Poland etc for the UK, USA, France etc).

The relentless Jew-Zionist attack on me, from about 2011 onwards resulted in my being disbarred, albeit only in 2016, 8 years after I had left Bar practice.

The now-disgraced and infirm Jew-Zionist solicitor, Mark Lewis, was trying to “get” me for years, and the two Jew-Zionist packs with which he was most associated, the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” and “UK Lawyers for Israel” both tried to have me disbarred, arrested and charged (with various faked-up offences), and expelled from Twitter.

Well, I was never arrested, let alone charged, tried or convicted of anything, but I was disbarred, after a nearly two-and a-half-year struggle. I have blogged about all this:

[above: the Jew solicitor, Mark Lewis, tweeting to people…]

Incidentally, Mark Lewis is still on Twitter and even has a “blue tick”, meaning that he is considered favoured; that despite the fact that Lewis actually bought about 70,000 non-existent “followers” (his wife at the time, Caroline Feraday, did similar; the marriage itself was brief, and lasted months not years). Lewis has kept at least 15,000 of his bought “followers” (he originally, when briefly “famous”, around 2012, had about 8,000, I thought, though Legal Cheek magazine said only 3,000, the same as me, ironically). That magazine pretended, for the sake of convenience, or for purposes of satire, to accept Lewis’s ludicrous “I wuz hacked” plea:

https://www.legalcheek.com/2014/06/phone-hacking-lawyers-twitter-gets-hacked-and-he-becomes-most-followed-member-of-uk-legal-profession/

When I was expelled from Twitter, I had only 3,000 followers, but at least they were all real (I also followed only about 50 accounts, mostly organizations; Lewis follows, even now, 660 at time of writing).

Thousands of other tweeters have blue ticks, but I can think of only one social-national tweeter, Nick Griffin, and I doubt whether he will be on Twitter for much longer now.

The only consolation is that Twitter is largely a waste of time anyway. Twitter thought that the Brexit Referendum would be easily won by Remain, and that Trump had no chance of election in 2016 (etc).

I have blogged about freedom of expression. I have also blogged and (before I was expelled) tweeted about a connected topic, what I call “the privatization of public space“, meaning how a few huge quasi-monopolies (particularly Twitter, Facebook, ebay, Amazon, YouTube) have arrogated to themselves and their employees the right to deny a platform to those with the “wrong” views, i.e. anything that stands against a Zionist-controlled or influenced globalized dystopia:

A few tweets seen supporting freedom of expression online

https://twitter.com/notasheepyet/status/1274198445134278658?s=20

More tweets, this time “celebrating” the removal of Katie Hopkins from Twitter. It is noticeable how many of those tweets are from those who make money out of the msm and who (unlike brave Laurence Fox) are desperate not to be blacklisted.

Look at the sneering, sadistic little bastard below, one Jamie East (note his proud “blue tick”, btw). Is, or was, an msm presenter (though I myself had never heard the name until today). The sheer nastiness comes out strongly. Also, like many others attacking Katie Hopkins, he seems to relish kicking someone who is down.

Here below is the contribution of Mehdi Hasan, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mehdi_Hasan, who “bravely” puts the boot into Katie Hopkins now that she has been removed from Twitter.

Below, another nasty little man who probably thinks himself terribly clever laughing at serious and important concepts such as freedom of expression etc…

Above, the logical conclusion: a witch-hunt, as seen in, eg, the Stalinist purges. Guilt by association and assumption (though I see now that the above tweeter is just a dim troll of some kind, possibly hoping to add to his 25 followers on Twitter).

The mob of “useful idiots” crawls over the marble ruins of a civilization that it could never build…

More tweets seen

Take a look, below, at tweeter “@LdnPearl”/“coons be gone” (well, in the reported words of Jesus Christ, “you have said it“…):

[Update, 21 June 2020: the very next day, tweeter “@LdnPearl” changed her “coons be gone” name to “Pearl”. Why? I mean, after all, “tell the truth and shame the Devil”, in the old saying…]

Conclusion? Quite a few of the blacks, the younger ones mainly, just hate us. There can be no society with them. A tweeter like “coons be gone” is a useless millstone round the necks of the British people.

And here (below) is another seemingly dim person (why are so many dim people from Manchester? Still, that’s one for the psychologists or social historians, I suppose).

Below: another dim fellow?

Also, one of the huge number of tweeters for whom Twitter really matters. In fact, it matters scarcely at all. The reality is that Twitter is an adjunct to politics, not the main substance of it (as the obsessed believe).

My own view of the Katie Hopkins/Twitter matter

As said above and elsewhere by me, Twitter is largely a waste of time. It helps those who have external activity happening; it is not useful as a standalone. If you are, say, Donald Trump, and you are expelled from Twitter, well, in the end, you are still President of the United States.

To put it another way, and to deploy the “Ken Livingstone” argument, were Adolf Hitler around today and had the NSDAP, SA, SS etc, Twitter would certainly assist the dissemination of his views, but it would not, of itself, help him to attain power or to retain power.

Switching that around, if a person today has no real organization behind him (or her) but only a “social media” presence, that person, be he or she ever so “famous”, is a colossus on legs of straw. Take away the social media platform(s), and the online personality is left with nothing.

The above “de-platforming” has happened to quite a few already. At more or less random, one thinks of that ghastly American degenerate, “Milo”. Others hit by “de-platforming” from all or most large online fora (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc) have been such as “Prison Planet” (Paul Watson), “Sargon of Akkad” Benjamin, and of course Katie Hopkins.

The irony is, that several of those removed from various online platforms, though removed mostly because the Jew lobby wanted it so, have been almost desperately pro-Israel and pro-Jew. “Prison Planet” Watson and Katie Hopkins are two such supplicants. Another is Tommy Robinson.

Lesser known people (intellectual dissidents, dissenting artists etc) are also being removed from the major platforms. Alison Chabloz, Brother Nathanael, Ian Millard (me!) and many another. Some cling on here and there, but all are being purged now and will not be on those platforms for long.

For the “alt-Right” wastes of space, being “de-platformed” means that their income streams largely dry up. Take away their online stuff, and they have nothing left. Take away the online presence of a real social-national party (were one in existence) and it would be not fatal, but merely an inconvenience.

The “alt-Right” wastes of space (Watson, Hopkins, “Sargon of Akkad”, “Tommy Robinson” etc are indeed men (and women) of straw. The only one with any real troops is Tommy Robinson, but he is not social-national, more like a clan leader, and without real ideology.

I support the rights of free expression of those mentioned above mainly from general principle. I believe that people should be able to express, without let or hindrance, views on political, social, or historical topics. The enemies of our culture and civilization (the black mobs, the “antifa” idiots, the Jew-Zionists) believe in preventing free speech.

I might add that Katie Hopkins and the other “alt-Right” and associated types never said a word in support of me; few of them said anything in support of persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz; none said a word in support of Jez Turner, of the London Forum, who was actually imprisoned for a year at the behest of that same pack of Jew-Zionists, the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”.

My own views are not at one with those “alt-Right” and similar people, at least on most issues. For example, Katie Hopkins is, or says that she is, pro-Israel and pro-Jew. For me, that is the end, and “Ian Millard has left the building”. However, she has courage, that’s for sure, and I think that she is genuinely against the migration invasion of Europe by blacks and browns.

In the end, does online ranting, opining, analyzing (and yes that does include this blog) accomplish much? I say no. It may have some utility, and I blog out of a sense of duty, and because who knows what might not happen because I blog? I do not regard blogging as truly politically or socially significant. Neither is vlogging, or (still less) tweeting.

Katie Hopkins is not social-national in ideology, of course. She is also callous in her attitudes.

What is needed is a real social-national organization in the UK. The time will never be more auspicious than in the next 7 years.

Tweets seen on various topics

Coronavirus and the “lockdown”/shutdown madness:

Migration-invasion:

Birmingham has fallen…

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8441055/Birmingham-police-officers-knee-alongside-protesters-Matter-anti-racism-rally.html

In fact, all the police bending their knees in that report seem to be black. Scandal. Incidentally, the Daily Mail refers to the organizer of the protest as “Bishop” Desmond Jadoo (or should that be “Baboo”?). The church of which he is apparently a “bishop” is not the Church of England (God be praised for small mercies…) but the “Vision Temple of Praise Church”, whatever that may be.

Glasgow

I was unaware until today (looking at tweets) to what extent Glasgow has become non-European (I have never been to that city). Shocking infiltration into government, the legal system etc.

More tweets

That has been my assumption, that the “Black Lives Matter” semi-insurrection is centred on the kind of young blacks who have been born in the UK, and who hate everything about Britain and the British, largely because they have been filled with “anti-fascist” and anti-British propaganda at ghastly comprehensive schools, aka educational prisons (in some cases).

The tweet below must be a contender for “thick tweet of the day”!

End “lockdown” now

What the government needs to do is to end the “lockdown”, right now, but also to keep advising people strongly, via the msm, re. washing hands (the only really effective way to prevent getting the virus) and reasonable social distancing (i.e. in particular avoiding crowded places and/or places where there are hot and excited people).

Michael Gove

Michael Gove, the pro-Israel, pro-Jewish lobby careerist MP and now Cabinet minister, is in the news again. It will be recalled that he was an expenses cheat in the 2005-2010 Parliament, to the extent that he was lucky not to be prosecuted for fraud. He is also a (supposedly former) cocaine abuser and drunk, who was also filmed in 2019, in the Chambers of the House of Commons, either dead drunk or drugged.

https://evolvepolitics.com/watch-michael-gove-accused-of-being-drunk-or-on-drugs-as-he-sways-and-stumbles-during-crucial-commons-debate/

Gove has a Jewish wife, Sarah Vine, who is a Daily Mail scribbler:

She is thought to come from a wealthy background and, although it is difficult to find out what her parents did, at the time of her marriage to Gove in 2001, they were resident in Monte Carlo. The wedding was at the beautiful village of Vence in the south of France and the reception was held at a local chateau.” [The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jul/02/sarah-vine-daily-mail-columnist-and-driving-force-behind-goves-pm-dream

It was a tweet about Gove which was one of five tweets (yes, that’s right, only 5 out of 150,000+) that got me disbarred in 2016, at the instigation of a pack of Jews: see https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/ , or google “Ian Millard barrister” for a one-sided msm view. Now, my tweet about Gove can be seen to have been obviously true (as were the other 4). At that time, Gove had not yet been exposed as a “cokehead”, just as a fraudster, embezzler, doormat for Jews and Israel, and a backstairs manipulator.

The emerging British toytown police state

It strikes me that, in most revolutions (in their uncontrolled “street” phase), it is not the intellectuals, not the ideologues, not the “responsible” trade unionists or the faux-revolutionary newspaper scribblers and TV talking heads who are the first to take to the barricades, but the delinquent youths and the —to use the contemporary colloquialism—  the “totally pissed-off— who do so. They are the ones who assault the police, hang the HVO secret police (Hungary 1956) , burn down the headquarters of the local Stasi and destroy its files (East Germany/DDR 1989) and who create the conditions for an actual revolution going beyond mere temporary upheaval.

Who are those who are “ignoring the rules” of toytown dystopian Britain in 2020? Not the bloggers, not the journalists (not even the dissident ones), not the pesudo-religious priests, priestesses and other frauds. No, we see that it is the youth, or part of it, plus a hard core of people willing to think for themselves and show themselves unafraid of the state, as well as (whisper it) the blacks and other non-Europeans in the UK (who have no thought for the principles of liberty, but who just want the practical or actual freedom to go to parks, play football on Brighton beach etc).

There is no revolution happening in Britain. Not yet, anyway. However, I notice that the young are the ones mostly ignoring the new repressive law and the police-invented “rules” taken from Government ministers’ mere wishes.

My local online newspaper reports that the police have, inter alia, tried to apprehend 7 youths fishing. My God, fishing! What devilment is this?! In fact, “when the officers arrived, the youths ran off“. Meanwhile, in other evil, police were called to a beach where youths had been reported to be using a jetski. My God, don’t they understand that they could be “spreading Coronavirus“, “literally killing people“, and “destroying the NHS“?

Well, no, actually. Because they are not. This pathetic poundland police state-ism is driving even me up the wall. Fishing in small groups (people who already know each other anyway), or using a jetski on the sea (much as I dislike jetskis) are not behaviours with the slightest chance of spreading this bloody Chinese virus.

In fact, the police were out of luck with the jetski “criminals” too, because it appears that, “by the time officers arrived, the youths and the jetski had gone, but officers found the remains of a barbecue on the beach.” A barbecue? The bastards!

Joking aside, what does it take for “Middle England” (let alone the brainwashed plebs) to defend what little is left of their liberties and civil rights?

Actually, my impression is that the vast bulk of the British people have sold their soul not for fame, money (in any large quantity), or other of the usual inducements. No. Just chuck them a family-pack of loo paper, some dried pasta, and a bottle of booze. That’s them sorted…and goodbye all the fine words about “democracy”, “a society under law” (nb. “law“, not laws“), “freedom”, “civil rights”, “human rights” etc.

I don’t want to hear any more about the (large fake anyway) “wartime spirit”, “Dunkirk spirit”, “Blitz spirit” etc, and how “we” fought “tyranny” (as propaganda had it in WW2 and, germinally, for several years beforehand, as well as since).

We see the 100-y-o ex-officer raising £20M or more for the NHS, and he is quite rightly being honoured. Having said that, why does a National Health Service need to have monies raised for it by ad hoc crowdfunding? The fact is that the NHS has been both underfunded and, at least equally important, maladministered for years, even decades. In the past decade, vast sums have been shaven off NHS budgets and, since 2017, nurses have had their pay frozen.

Will the £20M-£30M raised be properly deployed or applied? Come to that, I wonder whether that 100-year-old ex-officer himself voted Conservative in 2010, 2015, 2017 or 2019??

More tweets about the current madness

Yes, the virus has killed a significant number of people, but the expected mass onslaught of deaths has not arrived. The NHS has a huge number of empty beds for the time of year. The mortality figures show a confused picture, not least because it is not clear how the authorities decide who is and who is not recorded as a Covid-19 death.” [Peter Hitchens, in the Daily Mail]

The Slide of the English Bar and UK Society Continues and Accelerates

When I started to blog, I intended to write about things of general or objective importance. I intended to avoid the personal and subjective. Above all, I wished to avoid mixing the objective and the subjective. However, I think that some of my personal reminiscences and thoughts might be of interest to others. I also consider that objective conclusions can be drawn about UK society from some of my experiences.

Many of those who are reading this will be aware that I was disbarred in late 2016. That happened after a group of Jew-Zionists calling themselves “UK Lawyers for Israel” (some of whom, probably many, also belong to the so-called “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism”) made official complaint (in 2014) about a number (at first, several dozen) of tweets which I had posted on Twitter. Eventually, the number of tweets comprising the subject-matter of the charge was reduced to seven. Seven (7) tweets (reduced to 5 at Tribunal) out of, at the time, at least 150,000.

Now, though I may blog in detail about the manifold injustices around my own case at a later date, my purpose today is to compare the overall “justice” I received with that meted out to another Bar defaulter recently, in order to illustrate wider points.

Now the bare bones of my own situation were that:

  • I ceased Bar practice in 2008 and last appeared in court in December 2007;
  • I did not hold a Practice Certificate after 2008;
  • I joined Twitter in 2010 and started to tweet in 2011 or 2012;
  • My Twitter profile and picture never made any reference to my being or having been a barrister (whether practising, non-practising or employed);
  • Only a tiny handful of the 155,000-200,000 tweets I had posted made any mention of the fact that I had, years before, been a practising barrister; none of the supposedly “offensive” tweets did so;
  • The tweets I posted (whether complained of or not) were all posted as part of my “personal or private life”, I having had no professional life after 2008 anyway.

It should be said (without getting too technical) that the Bar Code of Conduct was once a slim volume but has expanded into a fairly lengthy and complex code. Suffice to say that the now-usual “race and religion”, “diversity” etc stuff is now included (and I think that we can be sure what kind of persons drafted those clauses…).

In the past, a barrister’s private life was not justiciable under the Code except in a few carefully-drawn exceptions, the main one being where a barrister had been convicted of a (serious) criminal offence (parking, speeding etc excluded). The new Code, in force for a number of years, kept those boundaries but, crucially, made them advisory only, taking away the cast-iron defence that whatever was complained of had been done in the course of the barrister’s personal or private life.

At the same time, the old and sensible distinction between barristers who are in practice, or who are employed as barristers, as against those not practising, or not employed as barristers, was removed in relation to “Core Duty 5”, i.e. in effect “bringing the Bar into disrepute”.

In short, I was, in effect, “bringing the Bar into disrepute”, or so decided a Bar Tribunal panel of 5 chaired by a retired Circuit judge, when (6+ years AFTER having given up Bar practice) I tweeted the seven *reduced at Tribunal to five) “offensive” tweets (on my Twitter account that made no mention in its profile etc that I had ever been a barrister).

I should say that the presiding judge made the point in his summation and sentencing that I had had an unblemished record at the Bar throughout the years since I was Called in 1991.

Other barristers had and have Twitter accounts. Some post obscene comments, such as the “lady” QC whose every sentence contained a swear word. Many have pictures of themselves in wig and gown, or advertise their practices via website links etc (which is now OK but would have been a serious Bar offence only 20 years or so ago). None of those who have used obscene language etc (including telling people to “fuck off” etc) has ever been hauled before a Bar Tribunal, despite their proclaiming their professional status, despite having photos of themselves in Bar clothing in some cases, despite their being in practice at the Bar and talking about it and the law constantly. The presiding judge at my 5-person Tribunal called my case “unprecedented”.

There are so many examples today of barristers doing things which would have meant disbarment decades ago but which are now laughed at and even applauded. We see, for example, the Jewish barrister known to the public as “Judge Rinder” (not in fact any kind of judge) on TV, the show aping that of (also Jewish) “Judge Judy” in the USA. The barrister who plays the role of “Judge Rinder” is acting entirely within the ambit of what is now tolerated by the Bar regulators, but one could not imagine such a show on TV in, say, 1967 or even 1987.

That is even leaving aside the vulgar advertizing and self-promotion undertaken by members of the Bar in practice. That was not permitted until the 1990s. The following example of a Bar defaulter was also one of the most shameless self-promoters.

Now let us look at how the Bar treated so-called “celebrity barrister” Henry Hendron, who, despite being a horrible little bastard –from what I have heard on radio and read in newspapers (I have never met him, admittedly)–, was treated very leniently by the Bar Tribunal, certainly as contrasted with my case.

Hendron supplied so-called “chemsex” drugs, apparently used in gay orgies, to his 18-y-o foreign boyfriend, who died as a result.

http://metro.co.uk/2016/05/09/celebrity-barrister-sentenced-after-supplying-drugs-that-killed-teen-boyfriend-5870206/http://metro.co.uk/2016/05/09/celebrity-barrister-sentenced-after-supplying-drugs-that-killed-teen-boyfriend-5870206/

Hendron was ALSO found guilty, on his own admission, of failing to administer properly his chambers (which he headed as Head of Chambers) and in respect of that was fined £2,000, a trivial sum for someone who made hundreds of thousands of pounds in a year.

https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/media-centre/press-releases-and-news/barrister-henry-hendron-suspended-for-three-years-following-criminal-convictions-for-supplying-illegal-drugs/

So the Bar Standards Board and a Bar Tribunal think that a barrister and indeed head of chambers who was convicted at the Central Criminal Court of supplying illegal drugs for immoral purposes, and that supply having resulted in death (within the Temple itself at that!) AND failing to run his chambers properly should get suspended from practice for three years (in fact only two, because time was ruled to run from 2016!) and get a modest fine, whereas I, “found guilty” of having tweeted five (reduced at hearing from seven charged) supposedly “offensive” tweets about Jews, and not a practising or employed barrister at all, had to be disbarred! You really could not make it up.

This is what the Bar Standards Board official , Sara Jagger, Director of Professional Conduct, said about the Hendron case:

“A conviction for supplying illegal drugs is a serious matter. In this case, it had tragic consequences. Mr Hendron failed to meet one of the core duties of a barrister, which is to uphold public trust and confidence. The suspension imposed by the tribunal reflects this.”

This is what the same woman said about my case:

“The use of such offensive language is incompatible with the standards expected of barristers. The Tribunal rightly found that such behaviour diminishes the trust and confidence the public places in the profession and the decision to disbar Mr Millard reflects this.”

The Board’s press statement (still on its website today) also repeated the lie that my Twitter account “made it clear that” I was a barrister. An out and out lie.

Who, I wonder, would the public think less properly able to reflect the standards expected of a barrister? A snivelling, drug-taking degenerate, convicted of illegal drug supply resulting in death, and who also ran his chambers improperly, OR someone who, as part of his non-professional life and indeed post-professional life, posted seven supposedly “offensive” tweets (taking them as described by the Bar Tribunal)?

You decide.

Postscriptum: The BBC Radio 4 “PM” programme interviewed Henry Hendron in a very sympathetic way recently; the popular Press handled the story with a relatively light touch. Contrast that with the day or three of msm storm around my case last year! We can see the way society is going: downhill, fast.

Update, 26 January 2019

Now he is or has been selling “legal packages”! Perhaps he could set up a stall or barrow in one of the London street markets? Is the Bar Standards Board OK with this? Is the Bar itself OK with this?! I begin to think that the whole bloody system should be chucked into the mire…

https://www.legalcheek.com/2018/05/suspended-chemsex-barrister-sells-4000-legal-advice-for-life-on-facebook/

And what is one to make of this? He now intends to sail around the world! Hello sailor! He even has the cheek to solicit donations from the public! As for his hypocrisy, in pretending to be a “victim” of “unequal justice” when he has been treated so incredibly leniently compared to me (read the blog article, above!), words fail me…(his crowdfunding page from August 2018 raised….just £40. Seems that the public are not so stupid after all). [Update, June 2019: Hendron has now deleted all his blog posts about sailing around the world with a bumboy etc and seems to be intending to use his website to flog more “legal services”]

https://henryhendron.com/

According to the blog below, he set off in August 2018, not knowing how to sail, and had to be rescued by the Coastguard the same day…then set off again a day later…The blog writer wants him to give up his “suicidal” journey. Seems that Hendron has one friend, anyway. [see above update, however]

https://www.russelldawkinsbackontrack.co.uk/my-mates/

In fact, it seems that he survived at least until 4 September 2018 (see his blog, below). What appals me about it is the poor grammar, spelling, use of English generally. That such a person was not only treated better than me by the Bar “regulators”, but was at the Bar at all, makes me fume (almost literally). Incidentally, and as of September last year, he had managed to get as far round the globe as Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, having started off in…the Isle of Wight or the nearby Hampshire coast.

https://henryhendron.com/author/hhendron/

[see update above]

I have to wonder, looking at his obviously disordered mind and his poor use of the English language, whether there really are mugs stupid enough to want to retain him on any basis. He asks for £600 an hour. Apparently, in the past his services were utilized by Nadine Dorries MP! Comedy gold.

Ah, seems that Hendron is no longer sailing around the world, unless his navigation is up the creek (literally)…he’s in Romania! https://twitter.com/henryhendron/status/1079764170…

[again, please refer to update, above]

or was, as of New Year’s Eve. Listening to him, I have to admit that I start to feel sorry for him, so pathetic is he. Compassion is my weakness, often.

A Few Stray Bits of News

a dissatisfied client of Hendron having his or her say… 

Update, 15 March 2019

Now he is on Question Time! (ironically, I agree with most of what he is saying!)

Update, 10 May 2019

Just noticed this (see below). Made me laugh that a young (?) lady calling herself @pussycatt1984 tweeted that she wanted to have the babies of “pink jumper man”. She might be disappointed…

https://www.legalcheek.com/2019/03/drug-suspension-barrister-goes-viral-after-pro-brexit-rant-on-bbc-question-time/

Update, 21 July 2019

The online legal news site, Legal Cheek, reports on Henry Hendron’s return to Bar practice, presumably operating from home or his boat (if he still has it):

https://www.legalcheek.com/2019/06/henry-hendron-returns-to-practice-three-years-after-drug-conviction/#.XQZ78yEYw-k.twitter

Another barrister does not sound very thrilled at the news (or at Hendron being described in a “newspaper” as “QC”!)…

Quite. Rather a shame, though, that Cherrett apparently does not know the difference between “practise” (as in “to practise”) and “practice” (as in “his practice is criminal”). Still, I suppose that one could be broadminded or charitable and say that, in the USA, the words are reversed…I should not want to be too much of what some call “a grammar nazi”…Oh, fuck it! Why not?! I am sick and tired of semi-educated or narrowly-educated people at the Bar (especially..) and elsewhere in good positions in this sliding country! The Bar, journalism, msm generally, Westminster.

In fact, reverting to Hendron, I was just reading a few of his recent tweets. He is at least not too bad from the political point of view:

and he seems to be an animal lover, so not all bad in that respect either, having retweeted this:

Update, 30 July 2019

Seems that Hendron has yet again been suspended from Bar practice, though only for 3 months:

https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/chemsex-barrister-suspended-again-by-tribunal/5071174.article

https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/media-centre/press-releases-and-news/barrister-henry-hendron-ordered-to-be-suspended-from-practice/

So Hendron

  • supplied illegal drugs to his foreign teenage boyfriend;
  • as a result of which the boy died;
  • at a “chemsex” orgy held
  • within the precincts of the Temple in London;
  • as a result of which Hedron and others were convicted and sentenced
  • at the Old Bailey

and

  • also found guilty at Bar Disciplinary Tribunal of failing to run his Chambers (of which he was Head) properly

and now also has been found guilty by a BDT of

  • failing to pay a lay client monies
  • despite having been ordered to by the Legal Ombudsman

but instead of being disbarred, has once again been only suspended. He must really have some good contacts in the Bar establishment! Or does he “know too much”?

Still, he only did what is chronicled above (oh, and sold so-called “legal packages” to the public from a metaphorical barrow), all of which have been in the newspapers. It is not as if Hendron did something really bad, like tweeting a few critical remarks about Jews…

I was looking at a few of Hendron’s tweets from 2016 and 2017. Only semi-literate. Does he claim to have dyslexia or something? No wonder that the Bar has lost most of the prestige it had half a century ago. It is just a multikulti dustbin now.

Update, 2 September 2019

Jew-Zionist hypocrite Simon Myerson Q.C. belongs to both main organizations that have persecuted me, “UK Lawyers for Israel” and “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism” [“CAA”]. Now he is playing the Jewish “victim” because others are trying to get him disbarred for his tweets etc…Ha ha! What goes around comes around.

It must be yet another case of “anti-Semitism”!…Jew hypocrite.

Ha ha!

“They” are still mentioning me online, really getting “full value”…

Henry Hendron wins appeal against second suspension

Mr Justice Fordham wrote: “[T]he BSB’s position is that a barrister whose practising certificate has been suspended is not a ‘BSB regulated person’”, adding that “I have heard no argument and seen no analysis to the contrary.

The judge praised the BSB and its barrister, Zoe Gannon, for telling him about the “suspended-barrister problem” even though it cost them the case. Hendron himself “had not identified it or relied on it in his grounds of appeal”.

Hendron himself had not identified it…“, Well, it is well known that “a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client“. I would not want his barrister to represent me, though! Semi-literate, and unable to identify legal issues, as well as morally suspect in various ways.

I should remind myself and my blog readers that the purpose here is not to attack Hendron but to show up the Bar itself, and to highlight the injustice to which I was subject.

I saw a few tweets from Hendron:

The “Crime Bar“?! As I said, semi-literate…

More?

I don’t care if he does claim “dyslexia”; if so, he should never have become a barrister.

As for this, what is one to make of it?

Your“? (Should be “you’re” or “you are“, of course). Calls his chambers his “office”, and seems to be in a position to pay someone up to £60,000 p.a.! Not sure that I believe a word that he says, though.

An older tweet, from 2011:

The Petersham Hotel? All human life must have been there! I certainly have been, though in the 1980s. “SS Headquarters Normandie”, as my friends and I used to call it! https://www.petershamhotel.co.uk/. Used to be a good place for a quiet drink.

Looks like Hendron has finally run out of road. Not that I was ever personally hostile to him; I have never met him, and indeed only heard of him after the scandal involving his “drugs and sex” activities came to light in the Press a few years ago. My aim in the blog was to compare his very lenient treatment by the Bar with the totalitarian repression that bore down on me because I said (on Twitter) a few supposedly “offensive” things about Jews.

Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Darcus Howe and the MSM: Cultural Musings

Introduction

The deaths of two people came to notice particularly in the past week. One person had been a significant cultural influence in the Soviet Union, was world-famous, is still oft-quoted. The other was a West Indian immigrant to the UK, best known for his support for black rioters, gangster criminals and others, as well as his assault on British cultural norms.

The first was Yevgeny Yevtushenko [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yevgeny_Yevtushenko] about whom The Guardian newspaper published this by way of obituary: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/apr/02/yevgeny-yevtushenko-obituary.

The second was one Darcus Howe: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darcus_Howe], about whom the Guardian said this: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/02/darcus-howe-writer-broadcaster-and-civil-rights-campaigner-dies-aged-74.

It can surely be seen that even the Guardian was unable to make out Darcus Howe as being a greater cultural figure or a more positive one than Yevtushenko.

Comment and Personal Musing

I knew neither of the two recently deceased. I had heard of Yevtushenko vaguely, en passant, as a child and teenager, about the poet who was able to fill stadia in Russia with fans listening to his declamations. Black and white pictures from Life magazine and books. Later, in my twenties, I knew a few people who had been well-acquainted with Yevtushenko in Moscow. I even met his third wife on a couple of occasions during that time and once swam with her and her children (Yevtushenko’s) in a semi-private wooded beach area in some expensive part of Bournemouth, on England’s southern coast.

I never met Yevtushenko himself, though I heard plenty about him. His private life was messy, not always commendable, but that is hardly unusual in the biographies of poets and artistic people generally. One cannot judge a poet primarily by his private life (think of Byron etc). At a distance, he seemed to me to be a Soviet cultural windvane, able to change direction not so much with the prevailing wind but at the moment before it changed. Thus Yevtushenko was seen by some , e.g. Irina Ratushinskaya [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irina_Ratushinskaya] as an “official poet”, with all the moral compromise and material benefits which that term implied; by others, as a brave and anti-official –even a little bit anti-Soviet– quasi-dissident.

Certainly Yevtushenko was willing to argue even with such as Khrushchev on occasion. He was lucky, perhaps, to have been born in 1932 and not 1922 or 1912. He escaped Stalinism to a large extent. Also, he was born and mainly brought up in Siberia, where (ironically) the Stalinist pressure was slightly less. Having said that, he lived in Moscow from age 18, studied there, was never in political trouble. I once heard privately that his mother had been an informant (“secret co-worker”) for the KGB and went weekly to an address not far from the Lubyanka to receive her stipend, signing for it on a list which had all the other names blanked out via a kind of stencil. Perhaps. That would not imply, however, that Yevtushenko himself was implicated with such work (and as I heard it, his mother only went through the motions anyway, giving little but avoiding conflict).

Certainly, Yevtushenko lived rather well by Soviet and indeed Western material standards. Robert Conquest [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Conquest] described that as “well-rewarded collaboration”. By the 1970s, if not before, he had a house or “dacha” at Peredelkino [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peredelkino] with (I believe I was told), 4 or maybe 5 bedrooms –unheard of luxury in the Soviet Union for all but the highest-regarded citizens. He also had an apartment near the Kremlin with no less than (from memory) 14 rooms (a friend of mine was offered the chance to stay there for a week while it was unoccupied; she returned to London gushing about how wonderful it was and how she had not realized that people in the Soviet Union lived like that!); the apartment had been occupied at one time, I was told, by Beria [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavrentiy_Beria] though Beria did have a mansion in Moscow, perhaps in addition. Yevtushenko also had a house on the Black Sea, situated, I believe, at Yalta.

Yevtushenko is now known for several “soundbites”, in today’s terminology, as much as for his poems: “in Russia, a poet is more than a poet”; and the 1962 lines usually slightly changed to (and improved?) “double and triple the guard on Stalin’s tomb, lest he return….and with him, the past” [http://osaarchivum.org/files/holdings/300/8/3/text/60-4-47.shtml].

Whatever one’s view of Yevtushenko, there is no doubt that he was a significant cultural figure, who personified the changes in the Soviet Union from Stalin’s rule, through the Thaw of the 1950s and early 1960s and on to the retrenchment which led up to Gorbachev, corrupt laxity and then complete collapse. Yevtushenko himself spent his later years living partly in the USA, paid generously by the University of Tulsa (Oklahoma) and the City University of New York (CUNY). A weathervane to the last.

As to Darcus Howe, I know little of him beyond a few items recently read, though I do recall that rather menacing figure on “British” TV from time to time, always promoting the idea that the blacks in the UK had been and were oppressed by white British people and culture.

I cannot imagine that Howe ever contributed much to the UK, though others, in the mainstream media especially, seem to think otherwise. On Twitter, the death of Yevtushenko was like an express train at night, flashing quickly through a country station (Zima Junction?) without stopping. Darcus Howe’s death was trending for far longer. The mainstream TV and radio almost ignored Yevtushenko’s death (and life), while eulogizing about the life of the West Indian rioter and troublemaker. Channel 4, the tax-subsidized “independent” channel, was especially loud in its praises.

Where the msm did notice Yevtushenko’s death, the reports concentrated mainly on his poem “Babi Yar”, about the death of Jews in the Ukraine during the war with Germany. Typical.

The cultural sickness of the West can be seen in the juxtaposition of the two recent deaths and how they have been treated. The time must come when real merit is respected, when people are able to properly discriminate between what is worthwhile and what is not. Most of the existing cultural organizations and faces must be removed.
