“A gang of dozens of youths terrorised motorists and attacked a bus and police car as they drove through Wembley, north-west London yesterday.”
“Youths“? Ha ha… Even the Daily Mail will not, in the old phrase “tell the truth and shame the Devil”…
The only thing —apart from a riot squad— that might work (but it will never be implemented under the System as it now exists in the UK) would be to have regulations akin to the old South African “pass laws”: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pass_laws.
Charmant… Sometimes it is too easy to forget that there is far more good than bad in the world.
Another Starmer-Labour would-be dictator; Labour Friends of Israel member.
All the same, do not be so silly as to oppose “them” in Israel/Palestine and yet fail to oppose their behaviour in the UK, France etc…
Appalling as is the “Conservative” government of Indian money-juggler Rishi Sunak, Starmer and his crew are already exhibiting the behaviour that made the Blair-Brown governments so hated in the end. No real choice. Fake democracy.
In much of the United States, the young woman could deploy a personal sidearm, and deal with the situation on the spot.
Even leaving aside that nonsensical statement, I doubt that I am the only one who is just ashamed that my country is now headed by an Indian money-juggler.
That is because the UK is now headed by a pack of cretins of very low cultural and intellectual level.
Who could have guessed that Cleverly would be able, thanks to events, to parlay his “Mcdegree” in “Hospitality Studies” and his TA/Reserves part-time Army activity into a stint as Foreign Secretary? Also, has the UK gone totally mad?
“Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.“
This looks hopeful, on the face of it. Kennedy is all for taking away the ricebowl of the Kiev regime. At the same time, Biden is very clearly mentally unfit to continue in his office.
Economic sanctions either do not work at all or have unexpected consequences. When I visited Rhodesia in 1977, aged 20, I half-expected to see a country weighed down by sanctions imposed by the UN. What I found was a country where those who owned cars mostly drove quite new ones. The UK complied with the sanctions regime, but France, Germany, Japan etc did not, judging by the cars seen on the road. Outside the capital, Salisbury (now Harare), though, there were often empty roads— one sanction that did have an effect was that on fuel, which was rationed.
I noticed that books were hard to get. The main bookshop (I was told it was the main one) in Salisbury had few if any serious books (and none of my then-favourite Penguin Classics), but plenty of books from South Africa, most seemingly (my perception, anyway) about how to take care of your horse/dog/cat/tropical fish. You could buy Wilbur Smith adventures, another South African import [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilbur_Smith]. Also, no American or British news and current events magazines, no Time, Newsweek, Spectator etc. Rather poor South African magazines such as Scope were available. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scope_(magazine).
The dearth of serious reading material was probably the result of both sanctions and the disinclination of most Rhodesians to spend time on intellectual pursuits even of a superficial nature.
As to other effects of the sanctions regime against Rhodesia, imported booze (from Europe or North America) was almost unobtainable, but that did not affect me personally during my time there, because my main drink, apart from water and orange juice, was beer, and the local product was of high quality (Lion Lager or Simba, pronounced “Shumba“, or South African Castle Pilsner, my favourite).
The Rhodesians tried to get around sanctions by diversifying, producing admittedly inferior substitutes for previously imported products. Everything from chocolate to whisky, and even some firearms. I remember seeing ads in the local press for a highly inaccurate submachinegun called the Rho-gun. I seem to recall that the price was about $290 (Rhodesian dollars, not exchangeable outside the country officially, though I did manage to sell quite a few —at a poor exchange rate— to a businessman in Gaborone, Botswana, after I left Rhodesia).
I noticed that “white goods” such as refrigerators, icemaking machines etc were very expensive, whereas locally-produced food such as oranges, nuts, and biltong (meat, often beef or antelope, dried in the sun) etc was not too expensive.
As for exports (supposedly impossible under the UN sanctions regime), the Rhodesians were able to export minerals and some fruit etc. Years later, I discovered that the Soviet Union, one of the states pressing for harder sanctions against Rhodesia (and South Africa) had in fact been secretly buying Rhodesian exports (at a substantial discount). Chromium and other minerals, and Mazoe oranges (sold in the Soviet Union as “Chinese”, apparently). All shipped out of Mozambique.
Tobacco was another prime export, sold on world markets by a sanctions-busting operation based, I think, in Rotterdam.
The idea that Russia will be “brought to its knees” by economic sanctions is a pipe-dream. In fact, such sanctions help Russia in a “be cruel to be kind” way. They force Russia to diversify, and to improve agriculture and horticulture. The sanctions have also forced Russia to create new trading links, and to strengthen existing ones.
“Human rights abuses”
The next time some bought-and-paid-for “British” or American politician-for-hire, or some Jew neo-con publicist, or fake “centrist”, talks about “human rights abuses” by Russia or others, remember the behaviour of the USA itself. Here are a few examples:
In tropical heat and/or blazing sunshine as well…
The above two images show the American concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay, on the island of Cuba.
…the fact is that the German camp guards of WW2, and even the brutal Soviet guards in their labour camps, behaved better than the Americans have in recent decades.
Behind the executives, and the paid-for public faces, the New World Order (NWO), and much of that is tied in with World Zionism, and Israel.
More tweets seen
Unless a true movement can emerge in the UK and mainland Europe pretty rapidly, that must be correct.
In 2016, one of the five tweets that got me disbarred, at the instigation of two connected packs of Jews, was that describing Sarkozy —accurately, except that he is not a full Jew, only part— as “a corrupt little Jew“. Well, scroll on 6-7 years and here we are…
Another of the five supposedly “grossly offensive” tweets posted by me, as a result of which I was unlawfully disbarred, was that describing snivelling cocaine user and drunk, Gove, as corrupt, as a fraudster and as a freeloader, and also as being in the pocket of the Israel/Jewish lobby.
Well, any argument on that now?
Look at the above news report. Speculators and parasites are favoured by Gove’s latest policy U-turn. Not all are Jews (and not all Jews are speculators and/or parasites) but, at the same time…
So, of the five “offensive” tweets, turns out that, in fact, two were undoubtedly —and now provably— simple true statements of fact, as were also (in reality) the other three tweets in question.
Corbyn was not even decently “antisemitic”, despite the constant (((whine))) about him. In general, a complete idiot.
700,000 immigrants last year. That’s “net”, meaning maybe a million entered but 300,000 (mainly real British people going to Australia, NZ, Canada etc) left.
Britain as a dustbin.
As, I think, Lord Green of Deddington said in the Lords recently, that amount of immigration means that, just to stand still, Britain requires 300 new dwellings every single day!
Horrible little blots such as Tom Harwood are now showing tiny bits of the Green Belt as scruffy here and there. The exceptions that prove the rule— the Green Belt must be saved and, yes, improved.
Starmer can now, I hope, kiss goodbye to his desired Commons majority in 2024. Much as I want rid of the “Conservatives”, Starmer-Labour is now showing its hand…and it is looking even worse.
It has nothing much to do with “dream of home ownership“. In any case, who wants to own a concrete or brick box in a hellhole landscape, and in which “neighbourhood” your “neighbours” may well be persons of backward culture not long off the boat (literally)?
Is that an honest poll? I wonder. Of course, the public has had 1-2 years of brainwashing or conditioning.
I wonder whether the results might have been different had the question made the point that if Ukraine joins NATO and has a war with Russia, it will be mandatory for all NATO states to join in. That is to say, it would be mandatory to join in a war against Russia which would almost certainly either be or become nuclear.
I suppose that, even were the question to elucidate the situation to the people asked, a few lunatics would still want to fight Russia, but most might think that the utter destruction of their homes and whole way of life would be a high price to pay for supporting “Ukraine” (the Kiev regime)…
Starmer still no more popular than Sunak, give or take a couple of points. Both stupid wasters unpopular with 60%-69% of the voters.
I daresay that, in a month’s time, once people realize that Starmer wants to continue to import millions of unwanted migrant-invaders, and destroy what is left of the still-beautiful English countryside so that millions of hutches can be built to house them, the popularity of Starmer —and so, Labour— will fall further yet.
The whole two-party system (with LibDem/dustbin add-on) is very ingrained. It is, in itself, a potent form of conditioning or brainwashing.
Thinking about that visit to Rhodesia in 1977: many people imagine that a collapsing society looks like Germany in 1945 (or 1923). Not so. I was in Poland (several times) in 1988 and 1989; also, in the DDR/East Germany, and Czechoslovakia.
The whole socialist system fell apart in late 1989. Yet the police still patrolled, the borders were maintained and guarded (until the Berlin Wall fell), utilities still worked, and there were few political demonstrations, let alone riots or the like. Letters continued to be delivered. Shops remained open, even if they had little to sell in some cases. The seismic changes were about to happen, but there were only slight external signs of that.
One got a sense of considerable discontent, talking to people in Poland and Czechoslovakia (on those visits and elsewhere as well), but the surface normality prevailed. The police still functioned, even in Poland (I myself picked up two tickets for, in the American phrase, “jaywalking”, i.e. crossing the road at the wrong place). Fined on the spot…twice. A recidivist.
Turning from those situations to the UK, there often seems to be little public appetite for swift political change. Frustrating for many of us.
We have seen, over 20 years, almost uncontrolled mass immigration (including, now, direct migration-invasion in small boats across the Channel, thousands of the bastards per day), crushing “austerity” for the poorer half of the society, ridiculous policies about the “Covid” “panicdemic” etc, an inability of Government to supply (directly, or via the private and/or third sectors) services vital to the people (such as trains, road repair, NHS or other healthcare, social care for various groups). Also, a failure to guard our borders, and a failure to clamp down on real crime (theft, drug abuse, social nuisance etc)., while kow-towing to Jewish/Zionist pressure re. social media non-crime.
Now we see idiots such as Ann Widdecombe criticizing parents who cannot afford to feed their children cheese sandwiches, while pumping billions out to “Ukraine” (the Jewish regime in Kiev) and to house and feed unwanted nuisances who have arrived via unauthorized Channel crossings.
Talk to people, and you get a sense of weary resignation in them, rather than anger, though that may also be there, under the urbane English exterior.
Still, there is everything yet to play for. The NSDAP vote in Germany was only 2.6% in 1928. Events happened, and the NSDAP triumphed only 4-5 years later.
“Purplebricks, the once high-flying online estate agent that reached a peak valuation of more than £1.3bn, has been sold to Charles Dunstone-backed rival Strike for £1 with all of its more than 750 staff put at risk of redundancy.
Purplebricks launched in 2014 and received early backing from Neil Woodford, the former star stockpicker. It floated on London’s junior market, Aim, in December 2015.”
Another example of the madness of crowds, and the madness of finance-capitalism, though I concede that there are arguments to the contrary.
Remember Lastminute.com? The newspapers boosted that simple and actually not very clever idea, made an entitled/privileged and silly woman (and her Jewish business partner) incredibly wealthy in the speculative scramble, but it ended with the small shareholders all wiped out; cheated, in reality.
The only thing that can be said is that at least most of those small shareholders lost only a few hundred pounds, if that, their share allocations having been very small.
Lastminute is still, I think, trading, technically. I tried to use the booking service once, about 20 years ago. Useless.
As to Purplebricks, looks as if many shareholders are now left with the value of their shareholding being worth little more than 1% of the peak valuation.

O, TO be in England Now that April ‘s there, And whoever wakes in England Sees, some morning, unaware, That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf, While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough In England—now!
[Robert Browning, Home Thoughts, from Abroad]
I agree with the implied statement of political journalist John Rentoul: this week was a touch more difficult than usual. He scored only 2/10; I trumped that with 4/10. Still not very good. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10.
I suppose that events such as the Hay Festival are planned months ahead. The promotional literature is printed, contracts are offered etc. The mass of the msm and public have only begun to wake up to the fakery and lies around “Jack Monroe” since late last year.
All the same, it does not say much for the Hay Festival organizers’ nous.
Does the above mean that “Jack Monroe” is getting thousands of pounds to appear? I do not know.
I know Hay-on-Wye very well, and have been there many times, starting in the 1970s, but have never been there when the Festival (I always call it the Hay Literary Festival; maybe it has changed its name) has been on.
Yet the hard core of 460 utter mugs is still there, sending “Jack Monroe” thousands of pounds monthly via Patreon, despite all the evidence that she is a fraud, or near-fraud etc.
Peak “woke”? A UK-resident Nigerian “grifter” travels to New York City in order to have a photo taken of himself trying to insult a building. Meanwhile, New York yawns and moves on; in fact, does not even notice “Femi”.
I remember well my days in New York (intermittently from 1989-1993). You have to be a lot more mad (in either sense) than “Femi” even to be momentarily noticed. Look at the passers-by in that photo. Not even bothering to look round at him.
Still, it enables “Femi” to keep pretending that he is some sort of political and social commentator, rather than an unemployed and possibly unemployable “grifter”, without any influence whatever.
Well, I only scored the same as political journalist John Rentoul this week— 5/10. I did not know the answers to questions 4, 7, 8, and 9; in the back of my mind, I knew the answer to question 1, but could not bring it to mind, so counted that as a “did not know”.
Yes, tweeter “@DevilsAdvo1971” certainly did shut up when confronted by not only facts but also evidence directly from one of the many people scammed by “Jack Monroe”. So many people are desperate to believe in something, or someone.
Yes. I recall talking about similar issues in 1976 with a couple with whom I was then friendly, a (supposedly ex-) getaway driver-turned-limousine service-owner, and his wife, both in their thirties (I was 19 at the time). The discussion was about the relative merits of the Western way of life as compared with the Soviet socialist system.
That fellow’s comment has stayed with me: “what matters to me is not the detail about how it works but what way of life comes out the other end.” Like many —more-or-less— “villains”, he was basically quite “Thatcherite” in his views (though this was three years before Margaret Thatcher actually became Prime Minister).
Indeed. In the late 1970s, the inefficiencies of the subsidized industries, and the (neo-Luddite) power of the trade unions, were the stuff of legend, but the “Thatcher Revolution” went far too far in various ways. All the same, people realized that some change was needed.
I have blogged previously about how the ~33-year cycle works. In 1989, old-style socialism died, but that did not happen overnight. In the UK, the change had been in preparation for many years, starting notionally with the Thatcher governments.
Telecoms policy illustrates the point. The State-owned British Telecom was privatized in 1984: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BT_Group. Even in the mid-1980s, it could take a long time for the average customer/consumer to be supplied with a telephone. It sounds ludicrous now, of course.
I knew someone from my schooldays who owned a couple of houses in South London, rented out by the room. He wanted the tenants to have a coin-operated telephone, and arranged with British Telecom to have one installed. After several months, he was getting angry that the telephone had not been installed. He was fobbed off with various reasons (excuses) until, finally so exasperated at the lack of action, about a year after he had asked for the installation, he called British Telecom to say that he was cancelling the order, only to be informed that the telephone was going to be installed a couple of days later. Which it was. Still, a whole year just to get a telephone!
That kind of rationing did not affect people equally. I remember being told, in the late 1980s, at dinner in Lincoln’s Inn, and by (now-deceased) Lord Justice Parker [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Parker_(judge)], that when he was first appointed a judge in, I think, 1969, that appointment had co-incided with his moving to a country house in a rather out-of-the-way part of Essex. There was no telephone.
Parker had then contacted the manager of the (then) GPO for the area to request installation of a telephone. He was told that it might take several months, if not longer. He then said that he needed a telephone for his work. The telephone manager had asked what work. “I have just been appointed a judge“. The manager then apologized, and said that a telephone would be installed that week. It was.
I imagine that the later Lord Justice of Appeal put his case quite forcefully. I certainly found him a rather unpleasant person, that one time that I spoke with him.
It sounds antediluvian now, when anyone can buy a basic mobile telephone for a small amount of money, and get it from a supermarket or other outlet in a matter of minutes.
The point is that the heavily-subsidized nationalized industries of 1945-1980s had become sluggish and a drag on economic efficiency. However, the privatization trend went too far in the late 1980s and 1990s. Now, the taxpayers fork out huge sums to notionally private enterprises, from railways and offshoots of the DWP and NHS, to the farming industry and others. We are getting neither proper service nor value for money.
The same is true of the “tax credits” payments put in place by Blair and Brown, and also the current “Universal Credit” low pay boondoggle. It subsidizes poor-paying employers out of public funds. That cannot be right.
To my mind, the loss is $30 cash plus the cost price of the goods minus the profit margin on the goods. I admit that I am no economist (or mathematician)…
The continuing cross-Channel migration-invasion will put the final nail in the Conservative Party coffin, even though Labour will be no better re. the problem.
The “democratic” pseudo-statesmen who feel the need to be heavily protected from those they claim to represent. Adolf Hitler never needed such measures, certainly not in the six years of peace 1933-1939.
What a contrast.
Just as one cannot see a single TV ad now in the UK, nor any drama series, even one set in 1950, and even one set in 1590 (!), that does not have numerous blacks in it.
It’s a start, no more.
Whatever happens in and around Bakhmut/Artyomovsk, the war in Ukraine has all but solidified. We see ever more detailed maps and reports about ever-smaller areas. Russia needs a massive gamechanger in order to retake the initiative on the large scale.
“The deindustrialization of Germany is in full swing. Eisenwerk Erla GmbH has filed a claim to declare itself bankrupt. The reason for bankruptcy is standard for our time – energy resources have risen in price. Think about it, this Saxon metallurgical enterprise traces its history back to 1380. For 600 years it has survived the Hanseatic League, two orders of knighthood – the Teutonic and Livonian, the Reformation, the First and Second World Wars, the Cold War and the Global Economic Crisis,but didn’t survive Olaf Scholz...”
[from above tweet]
Extraordinary that someone, one Julia Mark, who works in the “well-being” field, i.e. social aspects of food and drink, more or less, should be unaware that “Bootstrap Cook”, “Jack Monroe”, has been comprehensively exposed and debunked.
Actually, the thing about Twitter is how unrepresentative it is. The majority of the Twitterati over the past decade or so have been saying that Labour would win every UK election (2010, 2015, 2017, 2019), that the British electorate would certainly vote to stay in the EU (Brexit Referendum, 2016), that Trump had no chance in 2016, and that most British people favour mass immigration. Not to mention all the “Covid” “panicdemic”/”scamdemic” nonsense (including the face mask nonsense).
Now we see the same unthinking Twitter reaction re. “Ukraine” (support for the Kiev regime of the Jew Zelensky and his cabal).
I would dare opine that, if Biden can be consigned to history, oblivion, or a care home by 2024/25, the incoming US President, if Republican, will take away Zelensky’s ricebowl. Without US arms, ammunition, and money, the Kiev regime will have to surrender or make peace on Russia’s terms, or fight on briefly with little ammunition and arms resupply.
In short, without U.S. aid, the war will probably almost stop within weeks of the non-resupply, not least because the EU states and others will follow the lead of the USA. Russian forces will then advance almost unopposed to Kiev and across all of Ukraine east of the Dnieper.
The threat of East-West nuclear war will then recede and become again unlikely, as after the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1963 (and the near-accidents of 1983 and —once— in the early 1990s).
I imagine that, if the war finishes, Zelensky will retire to his stolen offshore riches and his USD $40M house in Florida.
I have no idea whether the Republicans will actually win in 2024. I do not know enough about it all, though the demographics seem to be gradually going against the Republicans as the non-white vote increases in proportion. Still, it must be possible for Trump or another to win, and I note many “experts” in polling etc saying that it is now likely. Biden is obviously intermittently demented, and (as I understand it) has not been doing well in the domestic sphere either.
Not that I think that System or semi-System politicians such as Trump and DeSantis are talking about pulling back from support for the Zelensky regime out of pure principle; they just do not want the USA, i.e. the country they and their backers live in and own, to be the subject of a massive Russian nuclear attack. Which might happen, if things keep escalating.
…and we all know who “they” are (((them))).
Far more true than untrue, anyway.
…and Obama was awarded that prize in his first months in office. Pure propaganda.
Previous Nobel Peace Prize recipients included Woodrow Wilson (brought USA into the First World War in 1917); Edvard Benes (Czech nationalist, and later a Soviet agent of influence); Gandhi (who often spoke about peace, but whose actual legacy was tumult against the British Raj, followed by mass slaughter when Partition went wrong, and the present India-Pakistan hostility); Alexandra Kollontai (Ukrainian-Finnish revolutionary, crazed Marxist feminist, and later a Soviet diplomat); Raoul Wallenberg (interfered in matters beyond his diplomatic or other competence; spied for Jewish interests and for OSS (pre-CIA); Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi (sinister international conspirator and prime mover of the “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan” to flood Europe and other white European-race areas of the world with non-whites).
During the Presidency of “Peace Prize” winner Obama…
I doubt that sanctions hurt the ground-level Russian people much. They may cramp the international travelling lifestyles of the Russian jet-set a little, but even so not much (they can holiday in other places than London and LA).
I urge everyone with a Twitter account to follow that tweeter. One of the best tweeters at present.
Absolutely right. What I have noticed, over not even the past half-century (I am now 66) but especially the last 10 years, has been how many pseudo-“conservative” TV talking heads etc have signed up to this. Quite a few years ago, the now-defunct BBC TV Daily Politics show had a bearded Austrian “shemale” or drag artiste (not sure which) on the show (I believe it was the Austrian entry for Eurovision that year) and, for days afterwards, all the presenters and guests, led by (of all people) Andrew Neil, were fulsomely praising that person and (by implication) their own, and society’s “tolerant” attitude etc.
Rudolf Steiner never explained in detail what he meant when he said, near the end of his life (d.1925), that the time would come when society would congratulate itself on its goodness and tolerance, but would not see the evil right in front of it. Or words to that effect. I think that we are seeing that now. It goes beyond obvious sex issues of various kinds to matters such as “Covid” restrictions (the fake “caring sharing” stuff disguising a bio-security police state), and other matters as well. The “trans” nonsense is the leader of the pack, though.
It becomes more obvious daily. “Trans” nonsense, faked biosecurity threats, “15-minute cities” and other (supposedly) “green” policies (designed to restrain free movement and travel by the mass of the population), the whole anti-Russia policy matrix and propaganda (many uneducated people now believe that Ukraine is actually a better and/or more cultured country than Russia!). Etc.
Late tweets seen
Like something from The Handmaid’s Tale, especially with that sinister black-clad and black-masked militia operative (or whatever) standing guard over the unfortunates.
Frankly, that was my thought too…It applies also to some other rather entitled young-ish professionals as well (stand up, twenty-something barristers).
After about 1989, the “West” looted the former Soviet Union (via the Jew “oligarchs”) and conspired to reduce Russia (with a number of other ex-Soviet states) to the status of a joke and vassal state. I saw some of that myself, here and there. What was presented as “partnership” was actually serfdom at second hand for the Russian people.
…and, as of today, 502 utter mugs are still sending her, via Patreon, a total of between £1,757 and £22,088 per month. While there are idiots like that around, “Jack Monroe” will certainly never need to get a job (or use a foodbank)…
The big picture is that China has now decided to give support, albeit cautiously, to Russia. The strategic balance thus tips more in Russia’s favour.
“Blacks with everything”
For several years, I have been noting on the blog (and, until a pack of Jews had me expelled in 2018, on Twitter) the System’s “blacks with everything” campaign (my description taken, of course, from the title of a play by the Jewish playwright Arnold Wesker, Chips with Everything: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnold_Wesker.
Yesterday, I happened to see, on the website of the British Library, no less, on the “how to apply for a reader’s ticket” page, that a black man features prominently (presented, surely risibly, as a typical British Library user?): https://www.bl.uk/help/how-to-get-a-reader-pass.
Does one regard this as typical of our times, or as simply pathetic, or just as a sociological lie? Or all of the foregoing?
I myself had a Reader’s Ticket (a kind of plastic photo pass, in fact which did not say “British Library” on it, in case it got lost and then misused) as long ago as 1980, when the Library was still based within the British Museum.
I have seen some Twitter accounts suspicious of who or what that “David Morgan” might be. I care not, and am only interested in the fact that I agree with much of what it, or he, says.
“A” nation? Think “several nations“. In the past 30+ years, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Lebanon, to take the most obvious. All connected directly or indirectly to Israel, Zionism, the “New World Order” [NWO] agenda, and the Coudenhove-Kalergi/Great Replacement agenda.
Interesting. That great genius, Rudolf Steiner, said that there would come a time (unspecified, I think, but in the fairly near future —Steiner himself died in 1925— when people would sink into (I forget the exact words) decadence and evil, but at the same time congratulate themselves on their own tolerance, and that of their society.
Is that not what we are seeing across the Western world?
We may be a great deal closer to nuclear war than most of us believe, or want to believe. It could mean the end of several hundred years of a certain history and way of life— or worse.
I doubt that many people in the UK would survive such a conflict, Britain being relatively small, yet having a number of high-value targets situated on its territory: ports, air bases, early-warning stations, submarine bases etc. As someone who lives only 15 miles or so from a major port (Southampton), I myself would quite likely perish, along with most of the rest of the British people.
All I can say to the survivors, if any, would be that they should then take the chance to eliminate those who have ruined our society, if any still live.
In the old (19thC) military phrase, “no names— no pack drill“…
More cheerfully, there are signs that, even in the USA and Europe, the decision-makers, or some of them, are wanting to draw back from the brink of the abyss, while still wanting to be seen to (seem to) support “Ukraine” (the Kiev regime).
What I find fascinating is that the sort of Americans who would have been gung-ho for war only a couple of decades ago, are actually the “peaceniks” of the present day. They realize that post-Soviet Russia is not their enemy, nor is it the force now destroying their society.
There may well be a less principled but still valid reason for them not to support a hot war against Russia— the likelihood that they themselves, their families, their neighbourhoods, would probably be blasted, incinerated, or poisoned.
Had Iraq or Afghanistan, or Serbia for that matter, had nuclear ICBMs, the history of the past 30 years might well have been different. The US Government and people have, since 1941 (if you include WW2 non-nuclear devastation), been used to pulverizing foreign places without the slightest risk that the same might happen to American cities and people.
In fact, I am told that Patriotic Alternative were not even at the Knowsley protest (though they had every right to be).
Yvette Cooper, would-be tyrant, telling lies again (she must imagine that she is filling in more of those fraudulent expenses claims…). A lying cheat, “grifter”, and fraudster.
Those pseudo-democratic drones in the Westminster monkeyhouse forget the wise words of President John F. Kennedy:
“In 1962, John F. Kennedy famously said, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
Ha ha! It does feel like that, the way that Western (System) politicians are all but genuflecting to the Jew Zelensky. You would not believe that he is now a corrupt dictator, has closed down opposition parties, arrested or had killed their leaders and activists, and closed down trade unions…
In my view, scribblers such as Gaby Hinsliff are not really or fully journalists, or even columnists, as once understood, in the sense of being honest fact-finders and/or opinion-expressers, but propagandists with or for an agenda. Such people may start out as journalists, but end up in another place.
In the UK, the same applies. I am also concerned at the very poor educational knowledge in the teaching “profession”. See also [UK]: https://www.gov.uk/home-education.
In the end (and as I suspected would prove to be the case), Corbyn as Labour leader, abetted by pathetic IRA supporter John McDonnell, was not even decently “anti-Semitic”. A complete waste of space, playing a game, or an amateur drama performance, as a latter-day 1930s Popular Front activist.
Both “Labour” and “Conservative” parties (faked brands for the naive) are planning to make virtually all immigrants (migrant-invaders) superficially “legal”. When that happens, the non-whites will just flood in, almost unnoticed compared to the rubber-boat influx.
Two fakes. A “Conservative” fake, Lee Anderson, who wants to say that State benefits are OK or even too generous, and a “poverty expert” fake, “Jack Monroe”, who is making money (as the first fake truly remarked about her on GB News last year) “off the backs of the poor“, and cheating people in several ways.
“Jack Monroe”, the grift that keeps on giving…oh, no, wait… I meant to say “taking”…
…and, yes, 498 mugs are still each sending her between £3.50 and £44 (!) via Patreon every single month. One of the most successful grey-area “near”-frauds I have ever seen.
The by-election was caused by the standing-down of incumbent MP Rosie Cooper, a poor MP in my opinion, who at one point wanted England and Wales to institute no-jury trials (“Diplock courts”, as used in Northern Ireland) for defendants accused of politically-motivated crimes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosie_Cooper. She was also, at one time, vice-Chair of Labour Friends of Israel.
The reason why Rosie Cooper stood down (at the age of 72) was because she will now be getting two or three times her MP salary, as head of an NHS Trust.
As to the inevitable Labour victory in the by-election, no surprise. Labour’s vote share of 62.3% compares to 52.1% in 2019.
The other candidates did not shine. Reform UK got 4.4%, but there again, its predecessor Farage-vehicle, Brexit Party, scored 4.3% in 2019. The Greens and Libdems ended up more or less where they had been at the 2019 election; both lost their deposits, as did Reform UK (and the Monster Raving Loony).
What can we take away from this? That Labour remains fairly solid in at least some historically-Labour areas, that the Conservative Party is going nowhere in such areas, and that the two main System parties face no threat from Reform UK, the LibDems, or the Greens.
The most interesting fact about the by-election is that the turnout was only 31.4%; well over two-thirds of the eligible electorate could not be bothered to vote. If a party were to exist that could energize the remaining 68.6%, it might be a different story.
Not that I disagree with him about Sunak’s “study maths until age 18” nonsense. The most important thing in that regard is to drill very basic maths (multiplication, subtraction, division) into pupils aged 7 or so. I constantly meet young and not so young cashiers at Waitrose who literally cannot work out how many lottery tickets are necessary for X-number of lines at Y-number per ticket. Some have to use a calculator!
Of course, “@TheFreds” are quite right: changing the colour of the deck chairs on the Titanic changes nothing but the scenery.
More lies from “Jack Monroe”
Serious pathological/psychological condition, I think.
I posed the question weeks, and I think even months, ago as to whether “Jack Monroe” sometimes makes up things and rolls out a pack of lies almost daring people to accuse her of lying, as in (to take a few examples only) that she was “on the game” (prostitution) in Essex (by reason of impecuniosity), that she attended the Grenfell Tower fire (60+ miles from where she lives), was “waved through the police cordon” (oh yes, the police would really allow a stray interfering rubbernecker to go through…) and even had plans of the building (why would she? How could she?).
The “Bootstrap Cook” said that she was so poor that she had to sell her small son’s toy dinosaur, that she had to take out lightbulbs in order not to waste electricity, and that she had to boil soap to make shower gel (which does not even stack up logically, when 90p shower gel lasts for 1-3 weeks with daily use, and when boiling soap costs money in itself; and why not just use the soap instead of trying to make gel out of it?). Ludicrous.
On several occasions, I have been certain in my own mind that her lies must amount to her thinking “surely the sad bastards won’t buy this one?!“, and then they (those who defend her to the marrow) do buy whatever absolute crap she comes out with at any given moment; while also (631 utter mugs as of today) each sending her between £3.50 and £44 a month!
In other words, at times she is certainly, in the well-known phrase, “having a laugh”, a laugh at the expense of the mugs subsidizing her and the others promoting her, the latter including Nigella Lawson, at least a couple of Labour MPs, and of course the media rats from the Guardian, Observer, BBC and Channel 4.
I think that “Jack Monroe” lies mainly because she enjoys inventing a fake or 90% fake narrative, and because she enjoys making absolute mugs out of those who not only defend her as a supposed —if risible— “champion of the poor” but who also send money to her!
She herself has said recently that her basic lifestyle, inc. rent, utilities, food, adds up to about £4,000 a month. The 631 utter mugs subsidizing her are anyway sending more than that (I am guessing about £6,000 but it may be more) each month.
I have no idea who that particular mug is, nor whether his/her problem is a mental illness or just plain everyday stupidity, but imagine taking money off someone like that on the false promise/threat that Con Party MP, Lee Anderson, was going to be sued for stating, entirely truthfully, something along the lines of the assertion that “Jack Monroe” is basically a fraud (at very least, a “grifter”) “living off the backs of the poor“, which is exactly what she is and does.
It is obvious that “Jack Monroe” is not going to sue Lee Anderson and/or Martin Daubney, though she has hinted at “things going on behind the scenes etc”.
Rubbish. Technically, she has 3-4 months left before the one-year limitation applies, but Lee Anderson has apparently not even received any letter before action.
It’s another “Jack Monroe” lie, in other words.
I think that “Jack Monroe” has one main intent, which is to be the centre of attention. Nothing else. I believe, rightly or wrongly, that even the money she gets from mugs etc. is very secondary to that central narcissism.
Incidentally, the “media folk” are still promoting her— there are a couple of articles even today in the Metro newspaper, giving “tips” and a recipe, and no mention of the scandal(s).
Strange to see: I was just reading about Ava Gardner [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ava_Gardner] and saw that she died in 1990, aged 67, at at her home in Ennismore Gardens, Kensington (London), near Kensington Gardens, where she had lived since 1968. I never knew. Had I thought of it at all, I probably would have assumed that she lived in either California or New York City.
I have only been to that exact place once, I think; in the very early 1980s, with someone escorting the then Metropolitan of Kiev (a kind of Russian Orthodox archbishop, the second-highest prelate of that church) who was then visiting London. The Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Dormition is at the end of a kind of hidden-away cul de sac there. We dropped him there, and were invited in (no-one else was around, as far as I can recall). The Metropolitan kindly gave me a bottle of Moskovskaya vodka.

In other words, only 1 person out of every 235 is on the side of “Jack Monroe” and her tweet.
Most supporters of the “Bootstrap Cook” effectively say, on the larger scale, “let’s bin the Tories. Once ‘Labour’ are in government, everything will be fine, or start to be fine“…
Does anyone with any sense actually believe that? The migration-invasion (both across the Channel and otherwise) will continue unchanged in numbers, and Rachel Reeves and her fellow Labour Friends of Israel MPs will be even harder on the unemployed, disabled etc than the fake “Conservatives” have been— she said so expressly.
In a binary political system, and one where both main System parties are really almost identical, you cannot change things very much by squashing one party at some election or other, because the other one is thereby strengthened, and the “Deep State” policies continue largely unchanged.
That Tom Doorley person is an Irish restaurant critic, who has been oddly biased in favour of the “Bootstrap Cook” for some time; see also https://www.tomdoorley.com/about.
Very true, though I doubt an accurate quotation. Or am I just too nice? I see various journalists tweeting that.
I myself am at present disinclined to bother with having my Twitter account reinstated (it having been “suspended” quasi-permanently after a pack of malicious Jews conspired to make a mass complaint in 2018).
Then of course there was the Miners’ Strike of the early 1980s, which greatly accelerated the decline of the UK’s deep-mine coal industry.
Quite. The UK-USA treaty is basically one-sided, and entirely so in cases with a political element. The UK became a complete colony of the USA (itself under strong Jew-Israeli influence) during the tenure of Blair and Brown, and that has simply continued.
From 14 December 2022. I must have missed that one.
Christmas University Challenge
A quarter-final alumni match between University College London [UCL] and Aberdeen.
Again, neither side impressive, and once again I think that I can claim to have beaten both teams easily. The Aberdeen team was very poor, and the UCL team even worse. A few tweets make the point:
…and that was the winning team!
The writer, Ken Follett [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Follett], was on the UCL team, and obviously believes himself very clever indeed, a view not supported by this evening’s evidence. He thus joins the club already containing, inter alia, the narcissistic barrister-tweeter, Jolyon Maugham, and the faux-revolutionary oddity and “licensed Bolshevik”, Owen Jones.
Another strange one on the UCL team this evening was one Ria Lina, described as “British comedian“, but whom I now see from Wikipedia is half-Filipina, half-German, and with an American accent, no doubt from her time in an American expat school in the Netherlands: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ria_Lina. I had never heard of her. Knew absolutely nothing, and seemed to be chewing something throughout;.
Stuchbery and Roanna Carleton-Taylor, with a “one man” “law firm” (a Pakistani solicitor in some closed-down Northern mill town), managed to raise about £12,000 from about 700 mugs.
Tommy Robinson never was sued by them (as I repeatedly predicted from the start), and the £12,000 “seems” to have vanished without trace, as far as I can see. Certainly, it was never used for the purpose the 700 “mugs” thought intended.
Incidentally, Louise Raw tweeted in support of that Stuchbery crowdfunder, and against me. What can one say? “Grifters United”?
Also incidentally, Stuchbery threatened to sue me too, a number of times. I was unworried, and blogged about how the crazy bastard was a “man of straw“, as indeed he is. He also threatened to sue (or, in his language, “clean out“) a number of others who noted in tweets Stuchbery’s constant “grifting” etc; even a number of stray Danes!
So was it a two-way split? Did the Pakistani solicitor lose out? I doubt it.

Don’t forget how “Jack Monroe” claimed that she turned up at the Grenfell Tower fire scene and was “waved through” the police cordon because, er, she once answered the telephone at an Essex fire station or call centre…
You only have to see what some of the Twitter mugs supporting such as “Jack Monroe” tweet (though some are pretty clearly fake or “sock” accounts actually run by the “Bootstrap Cook” herself), or Louise Raw, or Mike Stuchbery (etc), to understand that they do not know their **** from their elbow. Their understanding of politics, law etc is very obviously on a rudimentary level.
Hard to know who to despise more…”Conservative” MPs who think that peanuts State benefits are more than enough to live on (so long as you iron last year’s Christmas wrapping paper) or the “Jack Monroe” type, making a living out of tweeting or writing rubbish “moneysaving” tips etc while (in her case) “grifting” a pretty good living by reason of 643 mugs each sending her £3.50-£44.00 per month via Patreon.
Incidentally, that deadhead MP, Rebecca Pow, suggests how to save a few pennies by re-using wrapping paper, but fails to say where the presents themselves come from! How do you magically create the presents, or the money with which to buy them? Or should they be small wooden animals carved out by the poverty-stricken over long evenings lit by the light of a single candle, as in the less strict Soviet labour camps?
“Pow received criticism for stating during the 2017 Budget debate that people in Taunton have “thousands of extra pounds in their pockets”. This was disputed by many of her constituents.“
“In May 2019, it was alleged that Pow had falsely claimed parliamentary expenses through means of an ‘accommodation uplift’ for her children that she was not entitled to.“
Another safe-seat MP petty fraudster and freeloader, in short.
I never met the (now-deceased) author, but was very slightly acquainted with his (also now-deceased) father in the 1980s. The author’s grandfather was the famous composer, Sergei Prokofiev [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergei_Prokofiev].
