Radio 4 Today Programme

Heard half an hour of what used to be called the BBC’s “flagship news show on radio”. Do they have the cheek to still use that description? I hope not. Terrible. Dull in the extreme: Covid Covid Covid blah blah, Covid Covid Covid blah blah. Rubbish presented as news and “analysis”. Pathetic.

Rachel Reeves, the pro-Israel lobby MP (nominally “Labour”) was on, talking about David Cameron-Levita, Boris Johnson, and the breaking of the Ministerial Code. All very earnest, superficially, and I am sure that a few people in the Westminster Bubble were interested, but not 99% or more of the British people.

BBC Four

Now it seems that the BBC may be about to kill off or ruin one of the few decent parts of the BBC still left, television station BBC Four. Typical. The BBC must be defunded. It is more or less “Soviet TV” now, just a craven mouthpiece of the government in power. It has lost all legitimacy and credibility.

Interesting discussion. Britain should have a scientific institute akin to the one-time SS-Ahnenerbe [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe]. Part of such an institute would be for research into history, archaeology, heredity etc, but another and equally important part would be devoted to research into ways to evolve humanity in general and European/”white” people in particular to higher levels; in other words, the creation of higher race-forms in every way. The “design” of a higher race, if you like.

Believe it or not, the bastard being discussed is David Cameron-Levita! I thought that there could scarcely be a worse Prime Minister…until Theresa May and then Boris-Idiot came along. All three part-Jew, by the way… [addendum: I have now been told that the PM under discussion was in fact Blair. “Best PM ever“? I think not! A complete NWO/ZOG puppet, whose hastily-passed laws and policies still impede us today].

Startling ignorance of course, though rather highlighting the Hitchens “Oxford” obsession (he lives there). Not everyone knows the sex of even famous people, if the names are unusual.

When I started Bar practice in London in the early 1990s, I was given one of my relatively few Crown Court cases (I always did more public, administrative and civil law, as compared to criminal).

The case involved the sale of counterfeit tapes, and was set down for trial, to be heard at Snaresbrook Crown Court. One of the artistes allegedly copied was Shabba Ranks. My first question to the clerk at Chambers was “who’s she?“. Not a good start (it’s a “he”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shabba_Ranks).

That was not my first Crown Court trial (the first having been a case of “s.18” GBH, aka “GBH with intent”, a serious charge carrying a maximum sentence of life imprisonment), but it was at any rate one of the first few.

I was always lucky in the Crown Court, partly because, as a mainly non-crime barrister, I never graduated to the really serious criminal cases such as murder, terrorism etc. The most serious cases rarely result in acquittal, because the evidence is usually very strong and often overwhelming.

Well, anyway…more by luck than judgment, I did manage to do OK in my counterfeit tapes trial, after (on the first morning), the Prosecution told me that they were discontinuing (on the ground of cost, the cost of proving via forensic science that the tapes concerned actually were not genuine). Thus my defence, based mainly on an arguably implausible alibi, was never tested.

Incidentally, I was also lucky in that “GBH with intent” trial, held in what was then the Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court (the building in Parliament Square now occupied by the Supreme Court of the UK). In that trial, the defendant, despite having stabbed the thuggish “victim”, and then having poured boiling oil over him, was acquitted on the ground of self-defence.

Late tweets

This is more or less what has happened in the past 13 months in respect of the “virus” panic in the UK.

Hard to believe that tweeter “@TimothyNerozzi” is serious but, as Cecil King once said, no-one ever lost money by underestimating the good sense of the British people (it might have been “the intelligence of”…); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Harmsworth_King.

We have a rotten Government and an equally ridiculous official Opposition, but the idea that “the House of Windsor” could rule autocratically is beyond satire. Who exactly? The almost 100-year old Queen and Consort? Charles and Camilla? Surely not Andrew or Edward? The tame thick princelings, William and Harry? I suppose that at least Andrew and William could fly away, piloting their own helicopters, when it all went wrong…

We think of the Wall and the Stasi when we think of the GDR. But few are aware of the political correctness, the children stuffed into nurseries while their mothers were marched off to wage-slavery, the comprehensive schools and the contempt for the church.”— Take away the Wall and the Stasi and the rest is pretty much the same as 2021 Britain. Maybe that is the point that Hitchens is trying to make, in fact…

It always makes me laugh when some uncultured, semi-educated “antifascist” idiot and/or Jew calls social-national people “knuckledraggers” or the like; low culture, education, or intelligence is at least as common, I would say far more so, on the so-called “antifascist” side.

Mental illness is also very prevalent on the “antifascist” side; I have even blogged about it: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/18/theyre-coming-to-take-me-away-ha-ha/

Why would you be surprised that a psychopathic liar and part-Jew public entertainer (merely posing as “Prime Minister”) would…lie? It’s what he does.

and this, below, is interesting

…particularly when, only yesterday, the UK Supreme Court quashed the convictions of Gerry Adams. Do we see where this is going? I think that we do.

Indeed, it now seems that Boris-idiot secretly agreed to the “border in the Irish Sea” as long ago as October 2019!

Typical, of course…

Interesting tweets

Especially the one by tweeter @first_dante

The “Communist” campaign of subversion that started as an adjunct to Soviet Intelligence and was noted by such as Golitsyn (albeit over-valued by him, and to some extent distorted), became so-called “Cultural Marxism”, infecting society from the 1960s. It was particularly powerful in infecting students across Europe, North America, Australasia (and, to a lesser extent, South Africa).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatoliy_Golitsyn#Golitsyn’s_books

Those students became prime ministers, Cabinet ministers, judges, heads of TV stations, radio current affairs programmes, as well as journalists and talking heads etc. A few names from the UK? Tony Blair, Cherie Blair, Alistair Darling, Jack Dromey, Jack Straw, and many many others. Few if any were “Soviet agents” (as far as I know, not even ghastly Jack Dromey, later a Blairite “Labour” MP, who attended the 1970s mercenaries’ “trial” in Angola as a kind of “socialist” vulture, sub nom “observer”).

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

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2576111/Comrade-Calamity-Union-thuggery-Financial-scandals-And-links-child-sex-abuse-Throughout-life-Mr-Harriet-Harman-got-things-SO-wrong.html

Few of those then-young people were even pro-Soviet, not least because “Cultural Marxism” broke free from its conspiratorial Soviet origins as the Soviet Union started to slowly decay and eventually collapse.

It could be said that what is called, inter alia, “Cultural Marxism”, is now just another NWO cultural current. It has little or nothing to do with any form of “socialism”, that’s for sure.

Where Golitsyn went wrong was in assuming that the “headwaters” of “Cultural Marxism” lay in Sovietism, when in fact they lay on higher ground, in the groups that developed (and named) the “New World Order” or NWO. Those same groups were those who fostered the Soviet Union under Lenin in the first place.

In other words, the former secret operatives who helped to collapse Soviet and Eastern European socialism (in the Soviet Union, Romania, Poland etc) were not communists disguising themselves as something else, but a metamorphosis of communists or socialists turning into something else, while still coming under the overall and yet covert control of the NWO powers on the grand scale.

Russia is not in control of the play as it is acted out; neither is the USA, as such. The NWO is pulling the strings, often through “Zionist Occupation Governments” [“ZOG”].

BannedTowerHamletsMural

The aim is to form a one-world regime, composed mainly of raceless, cultureless serfs, ruled over by ZOG and, beyond ZOG, the NWO powers. Below the ruling levels, a mass of untermenschen is promoted by the “governments” and the contaminated msm, drowning out the true voices of Europe’s future.

Seems that some Americans have never heard of “tax” and, in particular, “income tax”. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet is very dry in its humour…

Unfortunately, while in principle it is far more efficient for tax monies to go into one fund, or what in the UK are usually termed “central funds”, in practice this has flaws and drawbacks. It tends to mean that governments decide to use some of the tax monies gathered for all sorts of misconceived projects and grandiose ideas, while the foundations of society are ill-funded. It also means that those who pay tax (one way or another, and to some extent, everyone) lose any feeling of connection between what they pay in tax and what they see being funded and/or underfunded.

It might well be worth the loss of a certain amount of notional fiscal efficiency to both tie and be seen to tie tax monies raised to specific expenditures. For example, “Road Tax”, or “Vehicle Tax” is raised from motorists and others on the misleading basis (apart from it being compulsory) that the monies raised will pay for roads. Well, some may go to that, but probably less than is raised. The rest? To “central funds”.

“National Insurance” is another and similar example.

I am sure that people would more readily accept taxation if they knew that X% was going to go to the NHS directly, perhaps by taking X% off income tax and having a new “NHS Tax” at X% (or whatever).

The above proposal would also make more rational the election-time arguments about money, taxes, and services.

There is a limit to how far funding of NHS, roads etc can or should be localized, however. There is always the danger that poorer areas will be hugely impoverished if dependent only on a local tax base. However, a degree of localism is, in my view, good. It enables people to relate easier to what needs funding and to the sources of funding.

Bad news from the Beeb

…and to “balance” all the sensible opinions (with which I agree), let’s have the obligatory dim SNP tweet of the day:

Ah, yes, UK/English TV is “foreign” to a dim SNP partisan. Funny how these Scottish “nationalists” have (certainly Sturgeon’s SNP leadership have) no objection to the Jewish/Zionist lobby, no objection to mass immigration of non-Europeans into the UK (or even Scotland itself), no objection to Scotland being ruled or partly-ruled by the EU, NATO, the USA/NWO, “international” banks and financial institutions etc…Fake “nationalism”.

Lord Reith laid down his famous dictum for the BBC: “Inform, educate, and entertain“, presumably in that order. That dictum has been watered down to the extent that the BBC usually now fails to inform, or deliberately misinforms; it scarcely “educates” at all, even on BBC2, though it does —to some extent— on apparently-doomed BBC Four. As for “entertain”, it still tries to do that, mostly unsuccessfully, as far as I am concerned. Lowest common denominator.

The fact that opinionated football idiot Gary Lineker is (as I read) paid nearly £2 million a year makes the BBC worse than a mere absurdity.

The BBC pays millions to unpleasant “comedians” who trash everything worthwhile: Jo Brand, Jimmy Carr, David Baddiel; and many others.

The BBC is a negative force in national life now, in every respect. This latest insult to those of its viewers (and “licence”-payers) who have a mentality above gutter-level proves that it should now be shut down. It is not true “public service broadcasting” now, is an expensive anachronism and also a nest of anti-British propaganda.

Coronavirus

A team of international researchers say mouthwash could destroy the outermost layer or ‘envelope’ of the virus, preventing its replication in the mouth and throat.” [Daily Mail]

Spending time in the fresh air and sunshine can reduce someone’s risk of catching the coronavirus, a scientific adviser to the Government has said…Professor Alan Penn, a member of SAGE, the Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, reassured that those who flock to the parks that the risk of catching the virus outside is lower…He said: ‘The science suggests that being outside in sunlight, with good ventilation, are both highly protective against transmission of the virus.’ Other scientists say they ‘totally agree’ with Professor Penn and advocate spending more time outdoors, where the virus is less likely to survive.”

So much for the “Stay at home, Protect the NHS, Save lives” nonsense-propaganda that has been pumped out by idiots to idiots for months now…

I wonder how many virtue-signalling serfs will be out “clapping for the NHS” this evening? Where I live, not many; I have only ever seen one or two clapping. We now know that in fact NHS staff face little if any more risk from Coronavirus than do the general population. The risky jobs seem to be those done by care staff, taxi drivers and, oddest of all, security guards.

Evening foray

Needed a few things from Waitrose. Far more traffic on the roads than seen for maybe 6-8 weeks. In Waitrose itself, still the ludicrous “social distancing”, which seems to have been ingrained in many; a couple of people jumped clear as I, carrier of the Plague (as it might be) approached. One vacant-looking woman was wearing a —clearly home-made– facemask.

In fact, there were few shoppers and no obvious shortage of any goods. One “interesting” event occurred. I was there just before closing, and got stuck behind a woman buying a mountain of shopping while also having an extended conversation about trivia with the cashier. While standing waiting for my turn to be dealt with, an announcement over the PA system: “Waitrose closes at 8 pm, at which time all staff will stop what they are doing and clap for our carers”! In other words, what started as a genuine and spontaneous gesture in a few places has become a socially-mandated, Government-promoted and corporately-enforced and compelled act.

As a matter of fact, I left the Waitrose building a minute before 2000 hrs, and was still in the car park when the designated clap-time arrived. I noticed that only the black-clad Waitrose marshals, two of them (I call them Handmaid’s Tale militia) actually stood outside the main doors and clapped for 10 seconds or so. I also heard a police or ambulance siren, which was probably not co-incidental.

En route back to Schloss Millard a minute or two later, I saw one family of 5 standing outside a house, having presumably clapped. I later heard that some idiot let off some fireworks somewhere in the area.

Das ist’s. Time to dispense with the “clapathon”, I think.

The above article is worth reading.

Something else worth noting is that below, about “social distancing” being “here to stay” (or so says thick Ugandan Asian Priti Patel, the inept would-be spy for Israel who is now, laughably, a Cabinet minister for the second time)…
