A fair point, I suppose. A few people (of prominence) such as Hitchens have done what they can to wake people up to the weaponization of “the virus” for the promotion of an ulterior agenda (the “Great Reset”), but the big battalions of the Government, Opposition (so-called) and msm were all pro-lockdown, pro-shutdown, pro-facemask nonsense etc.

For myself, I should have preferred it had those of prominence in the msm etc, such as Hitchens, refused to be vaccinated (as I have). Having said that, every individual must make his own choice. To each, his own. Jedem bei seinem…

The UK msm is riddled with traitors of all sorts: former IRA supporters, supporters of Israel and Jewish terrorism, “refugees welcome” dimwits, “antifascist” idiots, anti-white European race and culture oppositionists etc.

In relation to the Greenslade matter, he was not alone in being a Fleet Street partisan for the terrorists in the 1970s.

There was a well-known part-Irish, part-Belgian, part-Jewish journalist (whose name presently escapes me), now long-deceased, who was also a columnist in London and who wrote about 30 years ago how appalled he was when, in the early 1970s, he realized how many mainstream/Fleet Street journalists reporting on the situation in Northern Ireland were strongly pro-Republican and often actually pro-IRA (Provisional IRA). This at a time when bombs were going off in London and across the UK as well as “over the water” in Northern Ireland itself.

The public were unaware how many employees of their daily “news” papers were pro-IRA.

The same newspapers are still pumping out disguised propaganda, though these days it is more often that they are supporting migration invasion, “black lives matter” nonsense etc.

National Lottery

What would you do if you won the lottery?” A “frequently-asked question”, I suppose. Most people do not stray far from the “new house, new car, expensive holiday” banalities. I think that I might offer a different answer, should that benevolent lightning strike me. I should probably employ an expensive firm of solicitors and, if necessary, Counsel, to use available legal strategems such as Norwich Pharmacal orders against a number of pseudonymous Twitter trolls. Let’s find out who they really are, and where they are, so that legal action can be taken against them. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwich_Pharmacal_order.

The scapegoat, 2021

A 95-year-old woman is to be tried in Germany. Her crime? She was the secretary of a WW2 camp commandant, in fact based (it seems) outside the camp itself.

The German police state (the present one, not the 1933-1945 Reich) has prosecuted her as a scapegoat for those now long-dead. Others have in recent years suffered similarly, such as very old men who, as boys of 18, belonged to the Wehrmacht or SS and did low-level work in concentration camp offices, or other activity. Even accountants have found themselves charged with complicity in the alleged death of thousands of Jews or others.

Of course, behind the conscienceless prosecutors of Merkel’s Germany stand the Jews and Israel, on the international level.

Another interesting contrast is between the bleeding heart pseudo-liberals and their refrain in relation to almost any criminal (that people should be treated leniently, released early etc), and the same bleaters when someone of 95 or 100 is on trial for supposed “crimes” “committed” by Germans in the early 1940s (such as shuffling paper in railway offices). Then, the “liberalism” vanishes, because the one-time 18 year old SS recruit or 18 year old secretary was “a Nazi”, i.e. was alive in the Germany of 1941-1945.

Were the 18 year old secretaries or draftees of 1945 Los Alamos (New Mexico) somehow responsible for Hiroshima and Nagasaki? No? Why not? If they were not guilty of wartme mass killing, then neither is a very old lady who was secretary to an SS commandant in 1944 or 1945 when she was 18 or 19…

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/feb/05/former-secretary-at-nazi-camp-charged-over-of-10000-people

The Guardian report even recycles the discredited “six million” stuff…

Farcically, the persecuted and prosecuted 95 year old (presently resident in a care home), will be tried in a youth court, because she was under 21 during WW2! Alice in Wonderland, in German translation.

That very old woman is a pawn in a game of “holocaust” publicity, the game being yet another ZOG Schauspiel.

Paramedic tweeter “@peepculture” finds it a puzzle what is happening. His Twitter profile has a “rainbow” motif etc. It naturally must be puzzling or even hurtful to people who perhaps sincerely believe that a multiracial, multicultural society can work, when all human history shows that it cannot, not for long anyway.

Marlene Dietrich

Saw a documentary about Marlene Dietrich [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marlene_Dietrich]. Her mentor was one Josef von Sternberg: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josef_von_Sternberg.

Looking at that “von Sternberg”, he certainly did not look German. I sought the answer. Wikipedia informed me that his real name was in fact Jonas Sternberg; Jew. The “von” presumably added for reasons of fashion, though I presume not camouflage (after all, most Hollywood studios were run by and riddled with Jews even in the 1930s, few of whom thought to attempt to conceal their origins).

That information led me to look at the Wikipedia page of another famous Hollywood name of the pre-WW2 era, Erich von Stroheim. Similar story: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erich_von_Stroheim; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erich_von_Stroheim#Background_and_personal_life.

Well, “Dr.” Raw does have a point. True, Labour is closer behind the Conservative Party than was the case at the 2019 General Election, but that is mainly because the Jewish press (both msm and otherwise) has almost stopped demonizing Labour now that Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer is leader.

Still, looking at the incompetence and nonsense of the present ZOG/NWO regime at Downing Street, it might have been expected that Labour would be miles ahead. It might be, were it a real Opposition, but Starmer just supports everything that “Boris”-idiot is doing, but says that it should be done more! Lockdown, the facemask nonsense, you name it. On immigration, Labour cannot attack the Government’s poor record, because Labour still favours mass immigration…

Overall, Labour looks pretty sad.

I could write a book about the immigration cases I did in the early 1990s; I appeared before immigration tribunals at first instance, in the Immigration Appeal Tribunal, and also in the High Court (on judicial review applications).

Some cases were run of the mill, involving marriages etc, others involved fugitive members of foreign secret services, and yet others alleged members of extremist or “terrorist” groups (mostly Kurdish).

MSM going mad about Russian police and their rough tactics. The Russian police are rough at times. Russia is a rough country. So what is the excuse of the Dutch police, who on the weekend were using mounted police, water cannon, and rubber bullets on pensioners and young women (among others) protesting about the “lockdown” repression? The Dutch mounted police were filmed cracking open the heads of fleeing protestors with heavy clubs.

Strangely enough, the UK msm went mad today about Russia, but forgot to mention the Netherlands. BBC propaganda was blatant. All very (((odd))).

Exactly. Oh, and don’t think that, when you see or hear Boris-idiot, little Matt Hancock, Keir Starmer or others temporarily prominent (including the “royals”), you are observing the organ-grinders; they are just a few of the controlled monkeys.

When “Coronavirus” first was publicized, about February/March 2020, I thought, for a couple of weeks (as did most people) that it really was some kind of existential threat to the British and world population. I dismissed the “it’s a scam” talk as typically American “conspiracy theory” stuff. I soon realized (unlike most people) that “the virus” was neither as prevalent nor as deadly as billed. Now I see that it has been weaponized for use in the “Great Reset”, just like “Black Lives Matter” (etc) and the climate change narrative.

There is some truth in all of those problems, but they have all been deliberately blown up, and hugely, to fool the world.

PETER HITCHENS: Our panicking Prime Minister is bankrupting Britain

This is Peter Hitchens’s Mail on Sunday column

How extraordinary that the Johnson Government, while in serious money trouble, chooses to spend billions on a vaccine against a disease which in many cases has no symptoms at all.

Yet this peculiar decision is a mere ripple on the surface of a much deeper problem. Britain in 2020 has many economic difficulties, but good credit. The lenders and investors of the world believe the UK is run by responsible people and will repay its debts.

But my astute colleague Dan Atkinson recently discovered

that the Treasury and the Bank of England are creating money out of nothing on a huge scale. It is like the old fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin, who could spin gold out of straw – but at a terrible price.

Put at its simplest, more than £150 billion of Britain’s Himalaya-sized national debt has effectively been paid off – at no cost – using money created by, and passed between, the Treasury and the Bank of England.…” https://hitchensblog.mailonsunday.co.uk/

Mentally-disturbed “antifa” cheerleader, Mike Stuchbery (a sacked one-time temporary teacher who prefers to self-describe as “historian” and “journalist”) gets his facts wrong yet again.

In fact, Alison Chabloz was (wrongly) convicted in Spring 2018, and was made subject to a ban on Internet posting, a ban which was of 1 year duration. That condition expired in Spring 2019. Her appearance in court today (in respect of a podcast from mid-2019) was nothing to do with alleged breach of bail conditions (she was not in fact on bail for anything at the time of the alleged offence, though she is now, in respect of this present alleged offence); her prosecution now is in respect of an alleged breach of Communications Act 2003 s.127, a notoriously badly-drafted and repressive law which is under review at present by the Law Commission.

Looking at Stuchbery’s tweet, and the headline from “Court News UK“, I can only assume that the latter organization is run by Jew-Zionists. The headline is in itself tendentious.

I suppose that Stuchbery [https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/] simply accepted the misleading report in “Court News“, while adding his own (even less accurate) gloss about “bail conditions”.

In fact, Alison Chabloz was not “hauled back to court” (in the pathetically biased Sun-speak description of Court News) for breach of that suspended sentence, as such. If and only if she is convicted of a further offence, and the court also finds that any offence was convicted within the “operational period” of the suspended sentence as a whole (2 years from early 2018), would it be necessary for the court to consider whether any extra penalty need be handed down.

In fact, the prosecution is a contrivance and nothing more. I doubt whether Alison Chabloz will be convicted of anything.

The latest news is that the (notionally, 1 day) trial of Alison Chabloz, if it proceeds (which I doubt) will not occur until some time in 2021, possibly not until after April 2021. I myself was unaware until today of the fact that pleas (of “guilty” or “not guilty”) have not yet been taken! Also, there are a number of preliminary matters which will be dealt with (perhaps) on 17 December. That will, it seems, not be the date of trial (contrary to the situation as previously thought).

“Arfur Towcrate”…amazing (or maybe not) how most of the “Zionists” like to use pseudonyms on Twitter. It is natural for “them” to skulk in dark corners.

No comment from me necessary, I think…

Take a look at the tweet below:

Diary Blog, 2 October 2020, including thoughts about Trump and the U.S. Presidential Election 2020

Trump and “the virus”

Just thinking about how this latest news about Trump and Melania will play politically. Already I have seen opinions to the effect that Trump does not really have “the virus” and that Boris-idiot likewise never had it. Maybe so, but my inclination is to believe that both had/have it.

In respect of Trump, what matters is whether he recovers or not. If not, then (obviously) he will not win the upcoming election because he will be dead. In that event, Mike Pence would have every chance of beating Joe Biden and winning the Presidency for the Republican Party.

The more likely event is that Trump will recover. In the world as a whole, only one person has died so far out of every 8,000. In the USA, there have been (as the BBC and Sky keep telling us, usually without giving the per capita context…) about 200,000 or so deaths; that, though, is out of a population of about 330,000,000. 1 death out of every 1,500 or so of the population. In respect of known (tested) cases, nearly 5 million cases and, of those, 96% (4,737,000 approx) recovered; about 4% died: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

Trump is 74, overweight etc, and so in a generally more vulnerable than average category. However, the odds are that he will recover. So how does that play?

In my view, Trump getting “the virus” and then recovering would boost his standing considerably. It would validate what he has always said, and which is after all backed by the statistics: that in the USA, 96% of those who actually have had “Coronavirus” have recovered. Thus, while this virus is certainly a major public health threat, it is not the plague, not the Black Death, and society must not be shut down because of its existence.

Boris Johnson please note…

The US election is close, and not so easy to predict. The Electoral College electoral system is very odd, a very 18th Century idea of democracy. Each state has a number of Electoral College votes, based on the amount of population. Whichever candidate wins the most votes in each state gets all the Electoral College votes for that state (with two exceptions, Maine and Nebraska): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Electoral_College

Thus (as with the British electoral system based on MPs elected from constituencies), it is quite possible for a Presidential candidate to get a minority of the popular vote yet win the Presidency because that candidate has won a majority of the Electoral College votes. That is in fact what happened in 2016: Trump won a minority of the popular vote, but a majority of the Electoral College vote.

The bookmakers (in the UK) are making Joe Biden a close favourite over Trump, but it is still close enough to be uncertain. The demographics (increasing non-white populations in the US) favour the Democrats, but the majority is still small, though growing.

Superficially, Biden seems to have the election half-won, but I am not sure that Trump can be written off (assuming that he does not succumb to “the virus”). Trump’s handling of the virus situation is a major card for the Democrats. If Trump himself, at his age and in his condition of health and fitness, can pull through, that must strengthen his case on the virus and how to handle it, and would tend to back his preference for fully re-opening the economy.

There again, many white Americans especially will have been looking at the scenes of near-anarchy and even near civil war in some cities, and wondering whether Trump is not a better bet than Biden and the Democrats. After the recent “debate” shouting match, when (from what I have heard) Biden seemed almost ga-ga, this election may be very close indeed.

Boris-idiot

I see that msm commentators are using the (admittedly obvious) metaphor for “Boris” that I have been using of late in this blog, i.e. “a deflated balloon”. None that I have seen have described him also (as I have done) as a “sack of s***”, though! Not yet, at least. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8796623/JAN-MOIR-Ive-joined-bitter-flotilla-women-let-Boris-Johnson.html

I happened to see this video, made in July 2020:

This one too:

I myself would never waste time “debating” with such [redacted because of the lack of freedom of expression in the UK]. In fact, I would not bother to “debate” with most white British people either. I am here to put forward my own views, ideas and policies, uncompromisingly. “Debates” tend to produce heat but no light, as on the pathetic BBC Question Time. A show for the entertainment of people with little better to do.

I know that I am not alone in noticing that TV ads in the UK are now even more than heretobefore the vehicle for racemixing propaganda. Almost every ad now is replete with blacks and other non-whites, as well as the TV “families” with the white (often blonde) woman, the black man, and the mixed-race children.

Who do you think is behind all this? You know who…(((the you-know-who))).

Stray thought

Those people who say “I have lost a son/daughter/father/mother/grandparent/significant other to Coronavirus, so please do XYZ, and do not be COVID-19 deniers” are like people who say “I have lost [whoever] because of a traffic accident, so please never drive a car except at below 10 mph, and do not be traffic accident deniers“. Except that no-one sane ever says the latter, because such a suggestion would be seen as wildly disproportionate, as well as importing emotional blackmail into what should be a reasoned argument.

Pleasant sentiments, but I noticed that that tweet was retweeted by Jew-Zionist fanatic and Twitter troll “@frankiescar” (real name Andrew Roberjot, apparently a failed businessman of some kind and now a “legal people” groupie, though not legally-qualified, I believe), someone so unpleasant that he actually turned up to gloat when I appeared at the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal (I was disbarred thanks to a pack of Jews, most of whom were known to him): https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

If not, perhaps someone with money can discover his identity via civil litigation (e.g. via methods such as a Norwich Pharmacal order: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwich_Pharmacal_order).

Censorship and banning (etc) is becoming the norm. The “West” used to stand for freedom, more or less. No longer.

Britain is a country the governmental policies of which are driven largely by lobbies: the Jew-Zionist lobby, the subsidized-farming lobby, the banking lobby, and so on; in this case, the defence procurement and military lobby. One can however oppose, say, the military-industrial lobby, or the subsidized farming lobby, without being hostile to either defence or agriculture.

I vaguely remember “@JimmySecUK”, one of a number of insolent and ignorant bastards who were put in their place by me (and blocked me) on Twitter. Britain is full of these would-be “defence and security” “experts”, often armed with degrees from places that offer obscure “security and intelligence” or “international relations” courses; Exeter, Lancaster, KCL etc. This particular “expert”, or postgraduate student, or whatever he is, is very tied in with the Zionist/Israel/NWO/”interventionism” cabal on Twitter.

22 September 2020

Coronavirus and the latest “Boris” posturing

I start with the fact that, yes, a million people have died “of” (with) “Coronavirus” worldwide, but that is out of eight thousand million living on the Earth. In other words, one person out of every eight thousand.

The above fact indicates that what is required first of all is perspective and proportion. Those qualities are precisely those not found in the present “British” government.

The Government shut down most of our society for 5-6 months; but a society is not like something such as a washing machine or a TV set, which can be switched off at the flip of a switch, then switched on again 6 months later none the worse. It is more like a car, which if left unused for months, will probably not start up again without an external stimulus.

Now “Boris” the clown is threatening another national “lockdown”. Contrast with Sweden, which (despite a huge area with small population) is largely urban and suburban (i.e. that is where most people live), like the UK.

Sweden never had a “lockdown”, never insisted on masks, never did any of that rubbish. It did have many elderly people die in care homes. That was its mistake. However, the UK did the same, with similar results.

Now Sweden is close (I read) to “herd immunity”, whereas the countries in Europe that were harsh in having facemasks, “lockdowns” etc (e.g. Spain and the UK, among others) are still in trouble in terms of public health and have ruined their fragile economies.

I should be happy that Boris-idiot and his “Cabinet” (pack of Jews and Indians) are messing things up so royally, because that can pave the way for social nationalism when the economy crashes, unemployment soars and Britain loses whatever is left of its credibility as Brexit crashes and burns.

Two things depress that happiness: first, I hate to see what is being done to the UK, its people, its society and economy. Second, there is at present no credible social-national movement to raise the banners of social-national resurgence.

Scotland is even worse than England, under that ridiculous little tyrant, Nicola Sturgeon.

Actually, I think that many people are uneasy, to say the least, about the latest “Boris” nonsense: the “Rule of Six”, the “rule” that pubs must shut at 10 pm, and especially the idea that neighbours should spy on each other and report, like Stasi inoffizielle Mitarbeiter in the old DDR, or Russian and other Soviet секретные сотрудники of the old KGB.

The very legal validity of the “rules” is in question and may be pronounced upon by the courts soon.

Now “Boris” wants to use what little is left of the British Army to coerce the British people.

The real opposition to all this nonsense will not be brought into being by the nonsense itself though, but by the consequences of that nonsense— the tsunami of socio-economic pain gathering its power on the hosrizon.

The “controlled opposition” writes…

Wall. Squad. End.

Most British people now know nothing or next to nothing of their own national history, even the cartoon version.

This is where I part company with Peter Hitchens. Yes, many governments are incompetent (though in Europe, the “government” of Boris-idiot stands out as egregiously incompetent), but what has been happening in 2020 goes beyond mere chance and lack of proper administration.

Covid-19 Coronavirus, the facemask muzzling of the population, the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, the constant racemixing propaganda on TV (eg. in TV ads, which have become relentless in that respect…), the hullabaloo around Greta Nut and Extinction Rebellion etc; all of that feeds into what the World Economic Forum openly calls the “Great Reset” of the world. Inter alia, “the Great Replacement”, or “White Genocide”, as provided for in the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan: https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/

It is a puzzle to me, and always has been, why so many intelligent and well-informed journalists etc thought Boris Johnson so well-equipped to bid for his present position. The few who did not think so tended to say, “Boris has the ability, but does he have the ethical standards?“, whereas I was tweeting and then blogging for years, increasingly angrily, as the idiot flew higher and higher: “WHERE, WHEN, has Boris-idiot ever shown any real ability?”

Answer came there none. Years of incompetence, inability to plan, to execute plans, to explain clearly his ideas (few and all puerile) made no difference. Of course the Jew lobby, aka Israel lobby, liked him not only because he was totally pro-Israel but because he is part-Jew himself. They pushed him in the mass media which they largely control.

“Boris” was always buoyed up by his incredible arrogant confidence. That has now been tested against reality and found wanting. Look at him now. Most of the time now, he looks either like a deflated balloon or (and my apologies for necessary profanity) like a sack of shit.

Good point. I saw Starmer today on TV, saying what a good little prosecutor he used to be (and so, apparently, what a good Prime Minister he would make). Well, Starmer’s “USP” is basically that he is a better administrator than Boris-idiot. I suppose that he takes me with him on that. Almost anyone would be a better PM than “Boris”. Beyond that, Starmer has nothing to say.

Starmer is a puppet of the Jewish lobby. His wife, a lawyer, is Jewish; their children are being brought up as Jewish. I noticed, if I am not mistaken (I saw only a second or two before Starmer came on), that he was introduced on TV today by the notorious and half-Jewish Ruth Smeeth [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Smeeth] the former MP (2015-2019) for Stoke-on-Trent North, and an alleged “source” for intelligence officers based at the US Embassy in London (see Wikileaks).

I imagine that Ruth Smeeth is hoping that Keir Starmer will find a safe Labour seat (full of unthinking “me always vote Labour” plebs) for her.

Incidentally, Ruth Smeeth, who since 2015 has been on the Board of the (((well-funded))) “Hope not Hate” Jewish “antifascist” group, is now the Chief Executive (paid about £80,000 a year) of “Index on Censorship”. Irony is not dead…

Speaking of Wikileaks:

I never thought “Boris” likeable (or particularly intelligent) anyway. I have never seen much evidence of either, especially the latter.

Wonders will never cease. I find that I am actually in agreement with “Dunce” Duncan Smith!

Even before the “panicdemic”, pubs were closing, we heard, at a rate of 10 per day in the UK. In the —extended— area where I live, say a 5-mile radius, I myself have noticed a number of pubs now closed, probably permanently, while others have, I understand, effectively become daytime cafes concentrating on Kaffee und Kuchen, in a bid to avoid the “rules” imposed on pubs. Apparently, those ones are busy with the elderly who make up much of the population here.

Oh, and on a different topic, look (below) who has crawled out of her sewer again! Priyamvada Gopal, who wants to kill off European people, and who was promoted to full professor status by the traitors at Cambridge University after remarks to that effect. Here you see her intellectual level— pathetically poor:

In Russian, there is a more “gender-neutral” word-stem, i.e. “rod”, as in “rodnoy” (m) or “rodnaya” (f), “rod” indicating “native land or place” or “land/place.city etc of birth”.

My version: “Remember remember the 5th of November, Gunpowder Treason and Plot, Life is short and memory long, and traitors deserve to be shot!

Hitchens’ idea, i.e. that people should write to MPs re. the present nonsense, may have some limited effect, but will not change the overall direction of this crazed government of clowns. I know what I want to have happen to most MPs, but am not able to publish it…

Actually, quite apart from the above, there would be no point in writing to “my” local MP, because he is one of the few MPs awake to the sheer nonsense of the Coronavirus “lockdowns”, facemask imposition etc, though he is otherwise a complete deadhead, as well as being a lazy useless slug…

Since when did belief in reasonable social and economic freedom become “libertarian”? It is simply ordinary common sense.

Boris-idiot’s am-dram reprise of Winston Churchill was never at all plausible, certainly not to me. Now, it becomes so absurd as to leave a sour taste. I do not think that Churchill made the right decisions in 1940-1945 (in continuing the disastrous and tragic European war) but he was a great figure in both contemporary events and in history. “Boris” is all but irrelevant as a political “leader”, and in terms of history will be a footnote, if that. As Marx said, “First time tragedy, second time farce.”

A “conspiracy nut” may be the early stage of a tree of wisdom.

Actually, look at the facts, the way in which powerful transnational institutions have lined up in support of the climate change narrative, the “Black Lives Matter” narrative, the Coronavirus narrative…all at the same time…

Co-incidence? What about the fact that the World Economic Forum now supports the so-called “Great Reset”? This is not “conspiracy theory”; it’s happening in plain sight!

And look below at the way in which the termites are eating away at the freedom and lives of white British people. One word of criticism about the anti-white propaganda campaign being waged, and your bank wants to get rid of you:

“Diversity” = “no white people”, in the end. Racemixing and the genocide of the European peoples.

The person who tweeted from the Nationwide should be punished.

I also suggest that all white people in the UK avoid Nationwide (which does not value them and chooses to insult its customers) and, if already with Nationwide, switch to another bank.

There is only one way this can end.

Lammy, thick as two short planks and also extremely nasty (as well as very interested in money…).

“Socialism” in one Twitterverse

One of the most interesting aspects of the “Coronavirus” situation in the UK has been to observe the pathetic and feeble squirming of those who self-describe as “Left”, “socialist” etc., whether adherent to the shell that is the Labour Party, or otherwise.

What is the reaction of the Jewish and “antifascist” Twitterati to the closing down of civil rights in the UK? Craven obedience to Government diktat. What is the reaction of the “Labour” official Opposition? To support every measure this incompetent yet tyrannical Government of clowns has taken, except to say that themeasures should be harsher and better administered. This is not opposition, but fealty…

Actually, that weakness is good for social-nationalism. When the time comes, we can close down our enemies easily, and permanently.

Naturally, Piers Morgan does not worry about the economic damage. He gets paid millions for being a TV face. I dare say (speculating, admittedly) that some if not all is paid offshore via tax avoidance measures. He can scarcely recall what life was like before he hit lucky. If the poor and middle earners lose their jobs, well…Piers will still be on TV, raking in his life’s winnings…The same is true of all msm drones, MPs and other parasites.

The double standard…

So the police openly “facilitate” the anti-white, anti-British, multikulti mob hanging around a statue or memorial, but any counter-demonstration is banned. You could hardly see a more blatant example of Common Purpose bias in police executive action.

If anyone is still unable to see that the hand of the (((controlled))) state is pulling the strings of the black/brown/multikulti useful idiots, one can only suggest that they “go to Specsavers”…

Coronavirus

Sweden’s top virus expert has said the ‘world went mad’ with coronavirus lockdowns which ‘fly in the face of what is known about handling virus pandemics’.

Anders Tegnell, who advised Sweden to avoid full lockdown in favour of a ‘herd immunity’ strategy, said world leaders caved to political pressure amid panic – and that the crippling economic downsides of lockdown will far outweigh the benefits.” [Daily Mail]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8462727/The-world-went-crazy-lockdowns-says-Swedens-coronavirus-expert.html

Look at the graph below. The bottom left/right axis indicates deaths per million “from” (i.e. “with”) Coronavirus in each country. The absolute numbers on the up/down axis are not useful, because, obviously, the USA and Brazil have hugely greater populations than Belgium, Sweden etc. The graph shows clearly that countries that have had fierce or fairly fierce “lockdown” regimes (Britain, Spain, Italy, Belgium etc), have had far worse death outcomes than not only Sweden but also Brazil and, indeed, the USA.

The “increase in cases” now seen here and there can be attributed mainly to increase in testing. Yes, there are in many places “upsurges” in Coronavirus, but that is not very relevant, because most people “with Coronavirus” have few and mild symptoms, or no symptoms. The death rate is still falling everywhere, even on the sort of flawed statistics we have seen in the UK, such as people “assumed” to have died “from” (“with”) the virus, etc.

Analysis by Oxford University shows that 6 per cent of people admitted to hospitals in England with the virus died at the beginning of April. But the figures show that by June 15, just 1.5 per cent of Covid-19 patients were falling victim to the disease - a quarter of the level at the peak
[Coronavirus hospital cases and death from/with (England and Wales only)]

It is clear from the above graph that the virus peaked in England and Wales in early to mid April, since when it has been steadily decreasing.

The conclusion is inescapable: the UK “lockdown” (shutdown) which was instituted by a panicked and incompetent Government on the advice of incompetent scientific advisers (particularly the egregious Professor Ferguson), was not only unnecessary but also has come close to collapsing the UK economy, as well as destroying whatever confidence the public had in government, police, “experts”, the law and the NHS.

As far as Professor Ferguson is concerned, he is very fortunate that he does not live in Stalin’s Russia. He would have been shot. No question.

Peter Hitchens, one of the few scribblers to stand up to the panic and propaganda, thinks that the governmental reaction is a result of incompetence, not deliberate imposition of the skeleton of a police state. I am not so sure. At least, there may be a guiding hand behind all this, not only in the UK but worldwide.

We still do not know for sure whether this virus started in a Chinese laboratory, accidentally in a market or whether it was even planted in China by American services. We are also not sure about the connection (if there is one) between Coronavirus deaths and 5G communications masts etc.

In relation to the 5G aspect, I recall that for decades the electricity producers said that there was no connection between high-voltage power lines and leukemia. Though causality is still debated, there is undoubtedly a connection: https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn7460-large-study-links-power-lines-to-childhood-cancer/ https://www.webmd.com/cancer/lymphoma/news/20050602/child-leukemia-again-linked-to-power-lines#1

I have to say that I agree with Nick Griffin up to a point. Here’s an idea: the police, rather than (literally) bending the knee to the mob and then running away from packs of feral blacks, fire on them at close range with baton rounds (“rubber bullets”) or, even better, submachineguns. Then we would see who controls the streets. It would not be the mob. That would require something better than the UK police force, though. Something more disciplined, akin to the old SS…

“Lockdown” (shutdown) fallout continues

“The owner of Britain’s biggest shopping centres Intu Properties has collapsed into administration but will keep all its malls open…On Tuesday the company, which owns 17 shopping centres, warned malls may be forced to shut if it was unable to secure the standstill agreement.” [Daily Mail]

Translation: a large domino is about to fall. Other dominos will follow. Within a year, the towns and cities of the UK will be (even more) full of boarded-up shops, and even whole shopping centres and malls.

Of course, the horrible teenage lunatic or semi-lunatic who threw a 6-y-o boy off the balcony of the Tate Modern would not have been free to do so in the German Reich; he might even have been euthanized at an earlier stage (though probably not). He certainly would have been executed after having committed such a crime. I am generally opposed to the death penalty, but on the other hand, this kind of egregious fuck-up is of no use to society or even himself. Au contraire.

Kamm is a liar and hypocrite. A half-Jew, very pro-Israel. He applauded my disbarment in 2016 (I was disbarred for posting 5 tweets, out of over 150,000 posted since I joined Twitter in 2010). Kamm was only too pleased at the time to join in the Jewish mass media noise (google “Ian Millard barrister” for more).

As far as Alison Chabloz is concerned, Kamm did oppose her prosecution, at least post-factum, but at the same time made it clear that all online and offline platforms for opinion should be closed to her and anyone else thought “anti-Semitic”. That is not defending free speech“!

Diary Blog, 25 June 2020

Good grief. When I was about 8 years old, around 1964-65, my family would occasionally drive down from the Berkshire/South Oxfordshire border area where we lived to spend a day at Bournemouth (usually at nearby Boscombe). Maybe not on the most crowded days, but I do not recall anything like these crowds. Why now? Is it because more people have cars now? Population increase? I have no idea.

In fact, though I am against the ludicrous “lockdown”, to crowd onto a beach with thousands of others like that must be an excellent way to get infected by Coronavirus. Strange to think that only a few weeks ago, the toytown police were patrolling and bullying even lone sunbathers on deserted beaches to “move along”! Mad world.

Brixton

The blacks are revolting!

This is not surprising, firstly because it is the sort of “chimp-out”, to use the American phrase, that happens when there are large black populations; secondly because the blacks have been encouraged and emboldened by the craven police response to the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense and faux-insurrection (including policemen literally bending the knee to the blacks, in sign of fealty or surrender); thirdly because Sadiq Khan is hopeless; fourthly, also significant, the heat and humidity of yesterday is the climate that acts as a catalyst for such disorder.

Britain has still to make the decision as to whether it wants to be an advanced, European-race, high-IQ, high-tech, environmentally-aware country, or a multikulti black-brown and mixed-race mess, a “Congo-North” if you like, with ever-declining standards, pay, “welfare”, environment and culture.

Problem solved.”” [Varsity]

How long before it really “kicks off”?

The ludicrous UK “lockdown” is being eased, but only with absurd restrictions in place. Who will want to go to a pub when there are plastic screens everywhere? Who will want to fly (certainly for touristic purposes) when forced to wear facemasks, muzzles or whatever?

Already, we see the wave of redundancies rising. Royal Mail is to (in effect) sack 2,000 people, all in managerial or other senior roles. The knock-on effects from such decisions are many and affect many outside the ranks of those sacked.

We have a non-Government and a non-Opposition, a collapsing economy, and black or multikulti mobs rampaging in the cities. It is time for the British people to step up.

and see this:

This is sometimes referred to as “White Genocide”, sometimes as “The Great Replacement”.

More about Cambridge University and Churchill College

It now seems that Cambridge University has, since yesterday, elevated the anti-British, anti-European academic terrorist Priyamvada Gopal to the rank of professor. What a scandal. It’s a disgrace. We need a cultural purge in this country, starting with the msm but not sparing the universities.

I noticed decades ago that Cambridge University was a cesspit of treachery.

Here’s another swine who wants White Genocide:

[Priyamvada Gopal retweeted the above tweet…]

These “people” have declared war on us.

Rebecca Long-Bailey

Keir Starmer, a Jewish lobby doormat with a Jewish wife etc, has sacked Rebecca Long-Bailey. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/jun/25/keir-starmer-sacks-rebecca-long-bailey-from-shadow-cabinet

The chances are that he was just waiting for a chance to do that, if he could find a plausible reason. Well, now he has found a reason.

This news, combined on the same day, or within a day or so, with Starmer’s refusal to call for the resignation of corrupt little pissant Robert Jenrick (another one with a Jewish lawyer wife and half-Jewish children), surely shows what types are now pulling Starmer’s puppet-strings.

Not that I have much time for Rebecca Long-Bailey. She seems rather dim, for one thing, and could never be considered to be “prime ministerial material”. For example, she said that she “...would support workers in all strike actions and industrial disputes, “no questions asked”.[47].” [Wikipedia]. Well, that is just asinine.

Rebecca Long-Bailey has also said, in the recent past, that “she was unhappy with Labour’s response to allegations of antisemitism within the party during Corbyn’s leadership, commenting that “I don’t think we were dealing with complaints quickly enough”. She said that if she was Labour leader then she would follow the recommendations of the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Equality and Human Rights Commission.[42][43][44]“[Wikipedia]

In other words, Rebecca Long-Bailey, while not as much of a doormat for Jewish Zionism as is Keir Starmer, is or was all the same willing to kow-tow a bit to “them”.

Labour has been doing better in the opinion polls of late purely because of the incredible incompetence of the “Conservative” government. However, looking at its position structurally or strategically, it is even less connected with most British people now than it was when led by Corbyn.

I am talking about white British/English people, but I am not so sure that Labour is very strong now, or so strong, in the black/brown “communities”. The “ethnic” demographic(s) were Labour’s strongest suit. If they give up on Labour, all it will have left will be the public service people, the unemployed/disabled (in broad-brush terms) and the metro-London types that live in gentrified former slum areas. I am not so sure that even the Jews will drift back much to Labour, for all Starmer’s doormatting. They are anyway few in number, relatively.

Update, 28 June 2020

The petition to sack Priyamvada Gopal from Cambridge University, which already, within a couple of days, had tens of thousands of online signatures, has been pulled by the platform (change.org).

So now in the UK you cannot tweet, post on Facebook, petition, put up stickers (a man got 2 and a half years for that recently), march or demonstrate, or have a banner flown over an empty football stadium, unless you are in favour of multiracialism, multiculturalism, Jewish influence and power, “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, or other “approved” (by the System) beliefs.

First thoughts

I was going to talk about the mob rule which is being nourished and encouraged in the UK, but I have already said a lot about that (yesterday and also the day before), so I am going to talk about something else.

Several years ago, there was a plague of flying ants where I lived. They were the kind of fairly large insects that seem to emerge from cracks in walls etc, crawl for a while, then later take to the air. They bite (or sting) too, sometimes. They bit or stung our cats, I seem to remember.

There were, at first, thousands of them. An army of insects.

I hate killing things, for ethical or spiritual reasons, and also because I am not by nature violent, callous, cruel or bloodthirsty.

Had there been some way of capturing, and later releasing, the insects, I should have taken that path. As it was, there was no alternative. They had to go. They had to be eliminated. They were. It was not pleasant, but it had to be done. It was done. My modest residence was saved from being taken over by the creatures.

Well, there it is. An anecdote, perhaps not very interesting, but one which I wanted to relate, because those events happened at this time of year.

I suppose that those events were in my mind because of that, meaning because they happened at the same time of year, in early Summer…

More censorship…

 Little Britain has been removed from NetflixBBC iPlayer and BritBox amid concerns that the use of blackface characters on the series is no longer acceptable.” [Daily Mail]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8402623/Little-Britain-removed-Netflix-BBC-iPlayer-BritBox-blackface.html

I am not very familiar with Little Britain, mainly because I was living mostly in France when it was popular on TV (also because I am not a big watcher of comedy), but there is nothing wrong with so-called “blackface” anyway!

Where will this self-flagellating nonsense end?

Something like The Black and White Minstrel Show is now regarded as bad or even evil! In fact, it is just lighthearted entertainment. It might not be my own favourite kind of TV show, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with it!

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

This is not an isolated act. It is part of a global plot by sinister forces:

I’m going to bring down the U.S.A. by funding B.L.M. We’ll put them into a mental trap & make them blame the white people. The B.L.M. community is the easiest to manipulate.” – George Soros, September 2014.

Now add to that “and subvert the cultural and historical foundations of their society...” (and, in the UK, the police force!)

Coronavirus

At last, some reality from a Government spokesperson: “a child has as much chance of dying from Coronavirus as of being struck by lightning.” Quite. Until now, there has been the lie officially spread that “everyone can get it”, which, though true in itself, is disingenuous, inasmuch as a child certainly might get infected but if so will almost certainly be entirely unaware of it, completely asymptomatic, whereas a 90-year-old has at least some chance of requiring hospital treatment and possibly even dying, especially if he or she has “co-morbidities” (other health problems).

Bristolian and other statues

In fact, I do have one thing to add.

Happened to see a brief minute or two of some dim black woman, apparently the founder of “Black Lives Matter” in the UK, being interviewed by Kay Burley on Sky News this morning. It was asked as to whether she thought that it would be OK to leave controversial statues but put an explanatory plaque nearby. The black woman answered that it might be better to remove the statues but still have a plaque. So have a plaque explaining a statue which is not even there…

When you see many black people interviewed, or just talking, you realize why black-ruled countries are always in a state of complete chaos. They just cannot organize their thoughts properly, in almost all cases.

Good news from China (for once)

Tweets seen recently on various topics

So the censorship gathers pace. Superficially, the discontent of some blacks may seem to be at the root of it, but in reality the Jewish element, or part of it, is behind this.

This summer, a department at the University of Sheffield sent an email to students. A group of them had complained about their marks for an end-of-year essay. While a few had received Firsts, these students were given 2:2s and Thirds. “Thank you for raising the issue,” began the email, “and thank you also for your patience.” After reflection, the head of department and the director of “learning and teaching” had decided that, “our normal procedures… failed us. For this we apologise unreservedly”. The department had decided to “uplift all the marks… less at the top and more at the bottom”. The poorly performing students had their marks raised by nearly 40 per cent. The few who had done well saw their marks barely change. “Again, our apologies,” the message concluded, “but we hope that this is a satisfactory resolution.”

What happened at Sheffield is one part of a national story: the great university con…” [The New Statesman]

Well worth reading. This has been a developing scandal for over 20 years, if not 30 years. Huge numbers going to “uni” (often to the Uni of Nowhere), racking up student debt which will, in most cases, never be repaid, wasting national economic resources, the proud graduates then often being unable to find jobs beyond the most basic.

The proportion of students getting “good honours” – a First or 2:1 – has leapt from 47 to 79 per cent: at 13 universities, more than 90 per cent of students were given at least a 2:1 last year. And Oxbridge is leading the charge: 96 to 99 per cent of its English, history and languages students get “good honours”.“[The New Statesman]

Those are inflated grades from already-inflated grades. As recently as the 1980s, it was the norm for most students to get a 2:2. Tony Blair did…

Among the most culpable? Tony and indeed Cherie Blair, who promoted all this by making it easy to get McDegrees.

“This supposed university miracle can only have happened in one of three ways. The first is that schools have, over the past 30 years, supplied universities with students of a far higher calibre than in the recent past. This would be a notable achievement, as the university students of the past were the select few –In the 1970s and 1980s between 8 and 19 per cent of young British adults went on to higher education, whereas 50 per cent now do. The second is that universities have taken historically indifferent students and turned them into unusually capable graduates. And the third is the reality: the university miracle is a mirage.” [The New Statesman]

And see here:

As schools have become ever more rigid and exam-driven, the contagion has spread. As one Russell Group professor, wary of being named, puts it: “In schools now, students are being virtually spoon-fed, and that is feeding through.

Students are not taught to read, quickly and critically, and to communicate their ideas,” seconds Jones. “These most fundamental things are not being taught in schools. When we ask them to write, they are incredibly disorientated. And the students who are prepared are incredibly frustrated.” [The New Statesman]

and

““Ideas that students readily understood ten to 15 years ago, they struggle to understand today,” Peter Dorey, professor of British politics at the University of Cardiff, told the Commons inquiry in 2009. “Many of them are semi-literate.” Dorey described seminars in which students sat listlessly, waiting to be told how to “pass our exams”. “They will brazenly admit to having read nothing…” [The New Statesman]

You see that on Twitter, in the outpourings of the younger “journalists” even in mainstream newspapers, on TV too and in the legal profession as well: people unable to think, who just want to be told, for example, “This is Good, That is Bad, and Ian Millard is a ‘Neo-Nazi’ who (therefore…) is Very Bad.” And so on. I noticed it after I was disbarred for socio-political reasons in 2016: the tweets from ignorant little law student and pupil-barrister wannabees, all wanting to be seen to be condemning me. In fact, all that they have done is to condemn themselves.

According to their study, one in five graduates in England could not handle literacy tasks more complicated than understanding the instructions on a packet of aspirin, while the numeracy level of 28 per cent was limited to estimating the fuel left on a petrol gauge.” [The New Statesman]

I doubt that this terrible situation will be sorted out any time soon. It suits too many people:

  • the students (“she is a straight-A student who got a First from Oxford”…not so impressive when you know that 50% of all the students get “Firsts” and 95%+ get either Firsts or Upper Seconds…) (and I deplore the “straight-A” Americanism, but that too is legion, now);
  • the parents;
  • the schools from which the students have come (“X% of our students go on to university”…);
  • the universities themselves (which can —and do— pretend that their results and standards are ever-improving);
  • the government (“our policies are working in education! 101% of students are now getting First-class degrees!”…etc).

Scandal, and the country is the poorer for it.

I see that Rory Stewart is trending on Twitter (not that that means much). I blogged about him over a year ago.
