David Lammy

I was just laughing again at the following clip from Mastermind:

Lammy is no mastermind! His Wikipedia entry is too kind to him, and shows (yet again) the error of relying too much on superficial paper qualifications. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Lammy.

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.”

Well, Lammy is still only Shadow Lord Chancellor, thank God. All the same, he is now both a member of the Privy Council and a Bencher of Lincoln’s Inn, my own old Inn, from which I was formally expelled, by default, after a pack of Jews procured my —wrongful— disbarment in 2016: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

Britain is now mainly a crazy, multikulti, mess.

Vigil

I am currently watching a British drama called Vigil: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vigil_(TV_series). Fairly well done, but sadly with flaws typical of the contemporary UK msm.

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?

That kind of social engineering via TV drama is now ubiquitous: see my blog post from a few years ago https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/.

That propaganda is not aimed primarily at people of my age (65) but at young people and, indeed, children (whatever and whenever the “watershed” is supposed to be). It is basically subliminal normalization propaganda feeding into the screen of false “reality” promoting the “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan”: see https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi.

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 few more 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?“…

Well, if you put it like that

I should point out that I was in fact not a British (or other) intelligence officer, or agent for that matter, and was simply a tourist or visitor who had been the victim of “a series of unfortunate events”. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/03/07/when-i-was-not-arrested-in-egypt/.

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 now see that I am not alone in having noticed Raab’s apparent ignorance: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/oct/06/dominic-raab-confuses-meaning-of-misogyny-in-bbc-interview.

Blair after a partial (?) lobotomy.

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.

Look at this cretin!

This is him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Bottomley. A total nonentity.

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.

As Hitler said, “dirty democratic politicians“…

Asset-stripping parasites

[Philip Green, wife, daughter; examples of “the simulacrum of the human”…]

As the Daily Mail article says, while such parasites stole hundreds of millions of pounds, thousands of British employees lost out and now have lost their jobs.

It has happened before, most obviously in Germany during the time of the Weimar Republic [1918-1933].

See the resemblance?

Lenient sentence

Alison Chabloz was treated more harshly for having sung supposedly “grossly offensive” songs about Jews and “holocaust” hoaxes and frauds. Jez Turner of the London Forum was even imprisoned simply for having made a speech saying that Jews should be chucked out of the UK! Real justice is failing in England.

“Wera Hobhouse is a Christian.[22] Although her mother and grandmother identified as Christians, her great-grandfather was Jewish.” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wera_Hobhouse.

The Jewish/Israeli takeover of the USA really took place after the Second World War. At the time of the Suez affair (1956), the USA (as a state) was keeping Israel (as a state) at arm’s length [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suez_Crisis].

Even in the 1960s, the USA was still not entirely under the sway of its domestic Jew (and pro-Israel) lobby. However, the American film industry had been under Jewish control since the 1920s, and the American television industry was under Jewish control from inception: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_S._Paley [CBS]; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_J._Roberts [NBC].

Thus the American public was brainwashed by Jewish and Israeli propaganda from, at latest, the 1950s onward. That brainwashing encompassed everything from academic works through to the “nightly news” on TV, as well as works of fiction and “faction” (examples? Exodus and Schindler’s List, to name but two of the more influential).

When Israeli forces attacked a U.S. ship, it was discounted as a “mistake”…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Liberty_incident.

We have recently seen that even a “outsider” like Trump was really just a squawking parrot in a gilded cage, completely under Jewish control. The new President, Biden, is under even greater control. All of his top team and Cabinet are Jewish; even his children are all married to Jews. The penetration is so great that even Israeli (and other) newspapers have commented on it.

“Liberal”, supposedly “caring sharing”, Holland/Netherlands. I and my family had friends in Amsterdam, and for many years I had an almost rose-tinted view of life there (and I visited on a number of occasions in the 1970s and 1980s), but since then, in the past 30 years, I have encountered a number of far less congenial Dutch people, very superficial and moneygrubbing; I have realized that much of the famed Dutch “liberalism” is just a lack of real concern, and a superfluity of moral cowardice.

Waitrose foray

I went to the local supermarket yesterday, in the mid-evening. Very few customers shopping. Waitrose “Handmaid’s Tale” militiamen on duty, clothed in black, as always, faces covered with black scarves and masks like the ISIS barbarians.

The funny thing was that there was a shopper there, a grey-haired woman probably in her sixties if not seventies, wearing a cloth (i.e. useless) facemask and who insisted on giving me a wide berth of at least 10 feet! I saw her shaking her head, probably because she divined that I was not at all interested in pretending that the population has Ebola, or maybe she thought that I should be more fully masked than I was. I was the only other shopper around.

At any rate, I would have loved to have just said “wake up! It is not the Plague, and hardly anyone in this whole district has even had it!”, but (typically English?) I just ignored her scarcely-hidden rudeness and carried on.

The mad thing is that you see scared rabbits or extreme social-compliers like that woman everywhere now, masked even when alone on wet windy footpaths or in supermarket car parks. The social pathology is disturbing; I am sure that that is why “a majority of the population want more severe lockdown” (opinion polling) despite the country obviously showing signs of falling to pieces. A kind of mass agoraphobia and fear, and “Soviet” levels of —superficial— compliance; the fear has been whipped up by this government of clowns and their absurd “expert advisers”. That fear has taken on a life of its own now…

Still, I am not afraid, and after dark shop peacefully…

Debenhams

After the legalized fraud of the Jew Green and his catspaw, Chappell re. BHS and Arcadia Group, another similar finance-capitalist scandal:

The top brass at Debenhams raked in more than £35m in pay and perks in the years leading up to its collapse, a Mail audit has found. After being a High Street fixture since opening its first shop in 1778, the department store collapsed this week, putting 12,000 jobs at risk in the run up to Christmas. Bosses blamed the punishing impact of coronavirus on sales, but experts said the firm’s troubles are also due to crippling debts it absorbed while under private equity ownership.

“...analysis of its accounts by the Mail has found that bosses who led the retailer through its return to the stock market and the subsequent turmoil raked in millions of pounds every year.”

This includes former chief executive Rob Templeman, who was in charge from 2003 to 2011 and made at least £7.9m in pay.” 

Despite leading Debenhams when it piled on more than £1billion in debt – and paid out £1billion in dividends to its private equity owners – he claimed this week that he left the company in good stead and bore no responsibility for its recent problems.

The retailer was taken over in 2003 by a consortium including Templeman, Lovering, private equity groups CVC Capital and Texas Pacific and Merrill Lynch. The consortium funded the takeover with debt and paid themselves a £1billion dividend.” [Daily Mail]

I am generally against capital punishment, but these vultures and others like them should be put up against a wall and shot. Not “punishment”, mainly, but deterrence and a matter of the health of society as a whole.

Ursula Haverbeck

The heroic 92-y-o Ursula Haverbeck has again been sentenced to a prison term (1 year) for questioning the State-mandated “holocaust” farrago in Germany: https://www.morgenpost.de/berlin/article231071500/Holocaust-Leugnerin-Haverbeck-muss-erneut-ins-Gefaengnis.html?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1607088532

Ms. Haverbeck had only a few weeks ago been released from 2.5-year term for a similar political “offence”.

The “holocaust” farrago is defended so fiercely by the notionally “democratic” German state because it forms part of the post-1945 “Grundnorm” or “Ur-Mythus” of the State, a view of 1933-1945 history which (like the geocentric cosmology of the late Middle Ages) cannot allow itself to be questioned by “heretics”.

“Non-criminal” “hate speech”…

Harry Miller, Former police officer and Co-founder of the Fair Cop group, which combats police interference in free speech says “if you question any of the new woke orthodoxy, then you then you are running a very real risk of being reported for hate speech.”

This comes after police face legal action over an attempt to record non-criminal hate incidents involving children in schools — described as having a “chilling effect” on freedom of speech. School groups and civil liberties organisations warned that the records were an Orwellian move.”

First, Steal A Chicken

This post is one in the line of reminiscences of my life at the English Bar. More exactly, it is another story of my days of pupillage (“on the job training”) as a newly-minted barrister in 1992-93, still under the control of a “pupilmaster” (though, as explained in other posts, my “pupilmaster” was in fact the same age as me, a consequence of my “rolling stone” or “wander-bird” youth). It tells the story of a fairly minor series of thefts, but at the same time says something about UK and even European society generally.

A timeworn joke says that the first line of an old Hungarian recipe for chicken goulash starts, “First, steal a chicken”…Well, in this story there was no chicken but what there was was an Arab Gypsy woman in East London who was expecting a baby. Well, a baby needs all kinds of things and especially clothing, so the family of that woman– a man, a boy of 14, the pregnant woman, our defendant (an exceptionally beautiful girl aged about 18 who was a cousin of the pregnant woman), and another woman– set out one fine morning to steal the requisites. Their chosen emporium was British Home Stores, Ilford, part of East London.

The aforesaid shopping expedition was initially successful, but came to an abrupt end when the “shoppers” were arrested by police as they were getting into their car, laden with their “acquisitions”. A woman store detective had noticed them and had alerted her colleagues and the police.

It is at this point that the story becomes interesting from the “crime and punishment” point of view. The man arrested was not charged, on the basis that he had not entered the store, not handled the goods and had not admitted knowing anything of the thefts. The 14 year old boy, having admitted acting as a look-out (a pretty poor one, as it turned out), received a police caution. The other women admitted theft in the magistrates’ court and were fined £50 each. So that left our defendant, who was called something like Maroush or Marousha.

Now it transpired that Maroush was also going to be sentenced for being part of a gang which had visited towns in Dorset and Somerset and had stolen quite large amounts from shops by distracting the cashiers while the tills were open (in fact, they could somehow get them open, silently and in seconds, even when the tills were closed). Maroush was a minor player in that game but would be sentenced with several others, they like her having pleaded to those offences, after the conclusion of her shoplifting trial.

Now the point was that theft is an either-way offence and Maroush could have pleaded guilty in the “mags”, in which case she would no doubt have received a £50 fine like the others. Why she had decided to elect Crown Court trial, God knows. We only got her case at the Crown Court stage.

So it was that we all appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court one day. Snaresbrook is a large rambling building near the end of the Central Line in Essex, and which even then had, I believe, 26 courtrooms (Wikipedia says 20, but that was in 1988; trial was in 1992; it’s pretty big, anyway…). One thing that struck me was when pupilmaster and I were provided (by the Crown Counsel) with a copy of a short Home Office report marked “Restricted”, all about Maroush’s clan origins.

It seems that Maroush came out of a clan of Arab Gypsies who lived (no doubt in poverty and on the margins of Arab society) in pre-WW2 Libya. The Second World War dislocated the states and colonies around the Mediterranean. The clan took the opportunity, after the war finished, somehow to get to Italy. They were eventually granted residency, and some, citizenship. The EEC/EC/EU arrived, with its “free movement” provisions. The clan then moved to somewhere where they could live off the host population more easily– the UK. The Home Office report was fairly direct, which perhaps was why it was “Restricted”: one would not want the British people or Press to see the truth…In fact, the report made it clear that few if any of the 5,000 Arab Gypsies of that clan then living in and around London had remunerative work. They all lived from theft, begging and State benefits.

The trial itself should have taken a day, but in fact took three, to the irritation of the judge. Pupilmaster was usually extremely long-winded, almost absurdly so. In fact, because the trial only ended late on the third day, sentence had to be put off to a fourth, because the other “£50 note trick” defs would be sentenced alongside Maroush. In the event, she was –almost inevitably– convicted of the Ilford shoplifting, and was sentenced to, if memory serves, 22 months’ imprisonment, though most of that was for the Dorset/Somerset offences. Still, she would have been better off pleading to the shoplifting, in the mags. She cried in the dock. I felt sad (I was younger and perhaps more sensitive then).

Not sure why that trial has stuck in my mind: the Home Office report? The youth and beauty of the defendant? The manifest silliness of her decision both to fight the shoplifting charge and, far worse, to do so in the Crown Court? All was put to one side over a few beers in the nearby Spread Eagle pub (if I recall the name aright) not long after. Life went on.
