My own view of cannabis (and other illegal drugs) and the law is that, while the clarity of complete decriminalization appeals, I despise drug abusers, and would prefer either drug abuse to cease to exist, or drug abusers to cease to exist (or be eliminated).
On the other hand, the present system is not working.
I am also cognizant of the fact that societies where cannabis use is prevalent tend to fall to pieces, as Hafiz, the Persian poet, saw happening in his own country many centuries ago, and as one can see in the areas of the world where cannabis use is prevalent; Jamaica, for one.
All the —mainly British— people I knew when younger (1970s, 1980s), those who regularly smoked marijuana, dropped out of society to a greater or lesser extent.
The old Stasi, in the DDR, would have loved “Covid passports”, “track and trace” etc.
That anti-white narrative or stream of constant msm propaganda particularly affects the blacks, who as a group tend to lack logical-critical thinking skills.
Radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer (who blocked me years ago on Twitter when I exposed her ignorance on a point or two of law and procedure) seems to be turning a blind eye to the abuses carried out by the Jew-Zionist lobby. She has never said a word in support of the free speech of those attacked, and even prosecuted, at the instigation of packs of Zionist Jews such as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”. I wonder why?
Yes, Laurence Fox and his “Reclaim Party” can be put in the same bin as all the rest of the controlled opposition: Reform UK, Brexit Party, UKIP, “anti-immigration” “Conservatives”, Katie Hopkins, “Tommy Robinson”, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad”, Delingpole, Toby Young and his fake “Free Speech Union” etc etc.
…meanwhile, in England, the people amuse themselves with football, rugby, tennis or cricket matches on TV, the latest meaningless msm gossip, the latest “celebrities” one has never heard of, and they worry about their booking of controlled, mask-wearing, machine-holidays of the upcoming summer.
Is that so? If the new Alba Party challenges the SNP in most Scottish consituencies, and effectively enough so that other parties come through the middle (Conservative, LibDem, Labour), then yes. It may well be, though (and I never claim great knowledge of Scottish politics) that many voters “up there” will choose between Alba Party and SNP, and simply dump the others.
Voters who are pro-Independence but anti-SNP. I do not know whether that is so, and whether there are even any pro-Independence but anti-SNP voters.
I am guessing, but it may be that Salmond’s quite recent sex crime trial has mortally wounded him politically, even if he was formally acquitted.
Either way, it does seem that “Independence”, however nebulous a concept that is in the Scottish context where a new Scotland might still be tied into EU, IMF, World Bank, NATO etc, is gaining ground with Scottish voters. That might have big geopolitical implications.
Well, I see that John Rentoul has again been defeated by me, this week scoring only 3/10. My own score was 6/10 (I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 9 and 10).
In 2015, the SNP captured 56 out of the 59 Scottish seats in the Commons; in 2017, 35 out of 59, and in 2019, 48 out of 59. “Scotland” therefored, supposedly “voted SNP”.
In reality though, meaning in terms of the popular vote, the SNP only scored 50%, 36.9% and 45% in those years.
Usually, when there is a successful popular movement for a country to leave a larger country or empire, there is a large popular majority for that: 90% in favour, perhaps; certainly 80%. In Scotland, any majority at all is likely to be small, maybe 55% for and 45% against.
Because both Government and Opposition are pro-“The Great Reset” and “the Great Replacement”, both are riddled with agents of the Jewish lobby, both are pro-ZOG [Zionist Occupation Government], pro-NWO [New World Order] and in favour of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, and therefore both following exactly the same agenda. Understand now??
Not sure that I can agree with Hitchens. “Peter Simple”, whose stuff I occasionally saw in the early 1970s, always seemed to me to be a rather unfunny propagandist of a kind of faux-English suburban pseudo-reactionary mindset. Fake. At least, that was my occasional impression, a long time ago.
There are plenty of examples of socio-political madness at present in the Western world, not least the near-worship of the blacks (as in the “BLM” nonsense), and in respect of “the virus”. The former is nonsense partly because much of our present world has been created over the past few thousand years, and especially the past 600 years, by white European people(s). The blacks were and are mere adjuncts, bystanders, spectators, sometimes nuisances and, yes (and as the “BLM” proponents themselves say) sometimes “victims”.
As to the latter of my two examples, i.e. “the virus”, in some respects that seems to be a deeper-embedded sort of madness, perhaps because based on a deeper emotion— fear.
The Coronavirus or Covid-19 virus has (supposedly) so far killed somewhere around 2 million people in the world. That is about one person in every 4,000 people. In the UK, the death toll per unit of population has been far higher (taking the statistics as given, though they are obviously faked or wrong to a great degree). In the UK, there have been well over 60,000 people who have died at least “with” Coronavirus. That is somewhere around one person in every 1,000 people in the UK.
Conclusion as to seriousness: serious but not existentially so.
Conclusion as to measures taken: absolutely mad. Society has been crippled, normal life largely put on hold, civil rights abrogated, and the UK economy facing a very serious hit. A cowed and frightened population have been walking around (even on solitary country walks etc!) in facemasks (despite such masks being of doubtful use), and every kind of busybody and self-appointed guardian of public behaviour given loose rein. That applies also to the police.
Meanwhile, millions of people are all but abandoned by the NHS because their ailments (including the most serious) are priotitized as secondary in importance to the supposed battle against “the virus”.
The public debate, such as there is, is futile, because a huge propaganda campaign has frightened the unthinking mass of the people into imagining that their lives are in danger from this virus, whereas for 999 out of 1,000 people that is simply not so. Reasoned arguments from such as Lord Sumption, the former Law Lord (Supreme Court justice), cut little ice, because emotion almost always trumps reason.
Oh, well. In the phrase of the day, which so well sums up the present apathy and complacency, which applies in almost everything now (apart from the “panicdemic”), “we are where we are”…
On this Easter Sunday, let us not forget brave and persecuted satirist, singer and songwriter, Alison Chabloz, presently sitting in prison because a malicious Jew-Zionist cabal instigated a prosecution under the notoriously flawed Communications Act 2003, s.127.
It is to be hoped that Counsel for Alison Chabloz will soon be able to secure her release on bail pending appeal (to Crown Court) against an egregiously poor verdict and sentence by a magistrate. Unfortunately, that is unlikely to happen (if it does happen) before Tuesday [6 April 2021], at earliest.
That last is interesting as a metaphor. The same view, pretty much, that John Buchan, or Zuleika Dobson, might have seen before the First World War, or that others might have seen between the wars. Oxford now is hugely different (not just in terms of buildings but socially too) from both 1911 and the 1930s world of Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited, from that of C.S. Lewis, Tolkien and the Inklings, but that view remains essentially the same.
When I was a (rather belated) law student, in the 1980s, there was being discussed the question of whether barristers would continue to wear wigs and gowns. The wisest answer came from a lecturer who said that the Bar would cast aside everything except the wigs and gowns. The outward forms would remain.
In fact, while the above has proven to be mainly the case (in Crown Courts especially), in County Court the judge has discretion to dispense with the old form of dress, and in High Court and other fora (particularly in commercial cases) the old form of dress is often not in use now (neither is it in family law cases).
Nonetheless, most people do encounter the practising Bar in Crown Courts, and there the old forms remain in force. The substance of the Bar has, however, changed out of all recognition even since I was finally (having spent time in the USA) Called to the Bar in 1991.
Looking at the UK, the same is true in many other ways. Look at, for example, the Monarchy. It looks, at least largely, similar to what it was in, say 1956, the year of my birth. In reality, it has changed to something rather different. As I have blogged on previous occasions, whatever one may think of the Queen and Consort, no-one could mistake them or their lifestyle for that of “ordinary people”.
When you look at Charles, Anne, Andrew, Edward, there is less of the “royal”. You could just about (certainly in the case of the last three) imagine them living in some expensive part of suburbia, as part of (if the term now has any meaning) the rich “middle classes”, or indeed the “nouveaux riches”; or (as indeed is the case) living in Gloucestershire or Surrey, racing around in Range-Rovers, like characters in an “Aga saga”.
What about William and Kate, Harry and the Royal Mulatta? Notionally “royal” (in the case of William and Kate), but only in a “holding on by the fingertips” sense. Certainly there is nothing royal about Harry the “Royal Cuck” and Meghan the “Royal Mulatta” (who, not so many years ago, was actually married to someone else, a Jew businessman in Southern California!).
I do not want to be too hard on Harry. He obviously has emotional or mental problems, and was bagged by the Mulatta easier than the Duke of Edinburgh used to bag grouse, but he is basically now a peripheral nobody, albeit with plenty of money and still holding (so far) a couple of English titles.
William and Kate? At present still lined up to be King and Queen at some point, but I rather doubt that they will reach the finishing post.
Listening to the BBC Today Programme, heard a representative of the criminal Bar talking about how members of the criminal Bar are now suffering heavily from lack of work, and so fees. The courts have been closed or largely closed for 6 months. Barristers in private self-employed practice are subject to Lenin’s dictum, “he who does not work does not eat“— Кто не работает, тот не кушает [Кто не работает, тот не кушает]. How well do I remember that! I mean life at the practising Bar (1992-1996 and 2002-2008).
My Bar practice, especially in earlier years, in the early 1990s, was very much illustrative of that. I was in pretty poor London chambers at first, which supplied equally poor work, mostly criminal. I had to hustle, as the Americans say, to get work of my own in various ways, because chambers had poor work and the single Clerk was almost useless.
Before very long (it seemed long at the time), the magistrates’ court and Crown Court appearances gave way to High Court (i.e. non-criminal) cases, mostly judicial reviews, and other non-criminal work (mostly contract cases) in the County Court, as well as Tribunal appearances of various kinds. Quite mixed.
One day, a High Court brief marked at (for preparation time and first day or part) maybe £2,000 or even £5,000 for half a day or a day (this was about 25 or 27 years ago; today, it would be far far more), the next day a tiny magistrates’ court appearance at perhaps £100 (or less), or a “Mention” (a brief Crown Court appearance which might be only a few minutes in length), with criminal legal aid fee officially fixed at £46! The following day? Maybe nothing at all. The week after? Sometimes, still nothing at all! Followed by…whatever. Some weeks, one might do work in the thousands or even more; more usually, the fees would amount to a few hundred or a thousand; not rarely, I would make absolutely nothing in a whole week.
My spending was likewise up and down; one week, Rules restaurant, the River Room at the Savoy, Julie’s in Notting Hill, and a weekend at Cliveden [ https://www.clivedenhouse.co.uk/]. The next week might be an egg-on-toast breakfast at a workers’ cafe, and maybe a loaf of bread and a tin of tuna (plus decent red wine, though!) for the evening, and a walk in Regent’s Park for weekend recreation (depending on luck…).
Reverting to the Today Programme, my reaction (apart from Memory Lane reminiscence) was two-fold. I recognize that a civilized society needs a cadre of criminal defenders. Likewise, they need to be paid at a reasonably generous level to reflect their years of study, continuing study, and their responsibility.
Of course, many at the civil, Chancery and other parts of the Bar are not affected much, or even at all, by “the virus”. Still, the criminal Bar and maybe the family-law Bar are affected severely. A serious problem for society as a whole.
On the other hand, when I was attacked by a malicious pack of Zionist Jews, a persecution which led eventually to my unjust disbarment in October 2016, not one barrister spoke up for me, for freedom of socio-political expression (“free speech”) generally, or for fairness. Not one who had known me personally. Not one who poses as a champion of “free speech”, political liberty etc, and virtue-signals accordingly. Not one.
That being so, I have to admit that, harsh though it may be, I am laughing now as many members of the Bar are suffering, nearing penury and even bankruptcy. What goes around comes around, and I am not going to shed too many crocodile tears for people who failed to say one word for me or for free speech.
In fact, a few barristers, either Jews or very tied up with Jews and/or (probably) dependent on Jewish solicitors for work, tweeted joyfully about my getting disbarred; one or two were even gratuitously rude to me directly, either then or much later. Don’t worry— you happy few have not been forgotten.
Incidentally, the five tweets which resulted in my disbarment were all general comments; not one was addressed to any individual, and they were all true! Example? Michael Gove as “a pro-Jew, pro-Israel expenses cheat“. That was all demonstrably true, yet was deemed “grossly offensive“! Now, of course, we know that Michael Gove is also a cocaine-snorting drunk, who was even filmed not so long ago drunk and/or drugged, and staggering, in the Chamber of the House of Commons! Ye Gods!
…and it would be nice if the young wannabees who now pose as “journalists” could spell, and if they knew the difference between “praying” and “preying”…Stand up, Hull Daily Mail! [Update, 27 November 2020: the Hull Daily Mail must have seen my blog comment (or maybe others complained); they have now replaced “praying” with the correct “preying”…].
The politically-correct toytown police of the UK are unused to real British people standing up for their own and national rights…
Yes, if you made mock of the Jews the way that the Jew Sacha Baron Cohen mocks the Kazakhs, you would get prosecuted (if supported by a well-funded pressure group). That’s no “conspiracy theory”: look what happened to Alison Chabloz…and “they” are still trying to get her.
Incidentally, I know Kazakhstan, having lived there for a year (1996-97).
Everyone in the country should be aware of the conspiracy behind all of this. Resistance must emerge, before we are all just complete serfs of a dystopian nightmare.
Below, a typical System-approved idiot thinks that a “lockdown”, if “strict”, can defeat a virus…
It never seems to occur to that type that “lockdowns”, however strict, merely delay the viral progress without “curing” the situation. Look at Spain now. And France. And Germany.
People who have not thought this through.
What has to be factored in is that anyone who has died within 28 days of a positive Coronavirus test is now deemed to have died of “the virus”, even if, in reality, their reaction to infection was slight and they died of other conditions! It’s mad.
Meanwhile, huge numbers of people are suffering and dying because undiagnosed, untreated, not operated upon etc for non-“virus” conditions. The NHS is limping along not doing its proper job.
In the world in general, only one person in every 8,000 has died from “the virus”; in fact, the statistics are so unreliable that it may be one in 10,000, or twenty thousand for that matter..
That last one’s a killer! “...and how black people have to work harder than white people“! Since when? Maybe on a Boer farm in 1930, thanks to a few blows with a sjambok! Otherwise not.
Some of the replies to the original tweet are so “English” that they should be put in a glass case and exhibited alongside a copy of a Miss Marple book and photographs of England when it was a civilized white country. “You should write to the school“, opines one naive lady; “complain, with other parents“, writes another no doubt well-meaning lady…
When are these people going to realize that we, the white Northern peoples of the world, are in an existential war with the racially and culturally inferior?! The (((ones))) behind it all are sitting in North London gated communities, in Manhattan townhouses, on megayachts etc, manipulating the stupid (“Black Lives Matter” activists, “antifa” dupes etc) to do their bidding.
Members of the teaching “profession” are often prime examples of the rank and file of the brainwashed foot-soldiers of this war against us.
Writing polite letters, complaining to school staff, or to (often packed with enemies of British and European culture) boards of school governors etc will not “do de bizniz”.
Look below! This is what you are up against!
Because freedom of expression is now so repressed in the UK, I am effectively barred from writing what I want to write about what should be done. My readers will just have to read between the lines, as has always been the case in unfree countries.
I like some of what Monbiot has to say about environmental matters, and even some of the cited article is not entirely misguided, but the taking of the cretinous “Extinction Rebellion” vandals as a positive example shows a very poor grasp on reality.
If the present form of representative Parliamentary democracy is very unrepresentative, which it is, than how much less representative is the idea of “citizen’s assemblies” etc?
Extinction Rebellion has tried to get people elected once or twice (as Independents, because “XR” is not registered as a political party). Its “co-founder”, Roger Hallam, presently sitting in prison awaiting trial (unless out on bail) stood for election in the 2019 European Elections (for the London constituency). He achieved a vote of 0.04%, 924 votes out of nearly a quarter of a million votes cast.
History shows that “citizen’s assemblies” are always just brief episodes between one state imperium and another: Paris 1789, St. Petersburg and Moscow 1917, Berlin and Munich 1918 etc.
“Citizen’s assemblies” are either chaotic or have to be regularized, which makes them into rough and ready parliaments. As Stalin realized (maybe Trotsky too, thinking of Kronstadt), what then matters is who controls the secretariat behind the assembly…
Monbiot is right, though, in thinking that the present political and electoral system is broken. The UK needs not only a proportional form of voting, but (as mentioned in Monbiot’s article) something that ties taxation and spending closer to the people as a whole. Perhaps a proportion of government spending, whether 10% or 5% (or whatever) left to popular decision and meshed into the taxation system.
Quite right. The proportion of white Northern Europeans in the world is declining fast. It is already a tiny fraction of what it was a century ago; yet white Northern Europeans are the only hope for positive future evolution of humanity.
I myself do not really know Coventry. I have only been there twice.
I first went to Coventry (to the famous rebuilt modern Cathedral) in 1964, perhaps, at the age of 7 or so. I recall the (literally?) “iconic” metal sculpture of Archangel Michael spearing the Devil (a false memory, I now see, because the Devil, though bound, is not actually speared).
I also recall going into a snack bar (something my family hardly ever did) somewhere near that cathedral, and also visiting a large park which contained quite a few (I think) Indians talking in groups (there were then no Indians, Pakistanis —or blacks, for that matter— in Berkshire or Oxfordshire, at least I had never seen any, with the exception of an NHS consultant ENT doctor from the Caribbean who saw me a few times when aged about 6 or 7 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital).
I made a second visit to Coventry about 15 years ago. I stayed overnight in some Holiday Inn Express (I think). I did not see the better parts of Coventry (if any).
How long before people really start to chafe?
Increasingly, nothing works in the UK, whether at central government level, local government level, or simply in the retail sphere, e.g. large companies such as Boots. The simplest things are either not done properly or not done at all.
I was just listening to the stupid woman Boris-idiot appointed to run the “Coronavirus” track-and-trace service (which is a total waste of time and money anyway, but let’s leave that aside). One Lady Dido Harding, who has apparently made a career of messing up one high-level job after another, but always getting another one by reason of connections.
Then we have Chris “Failing” Grayling, just appointed to a £100,000 a year job, which may not seem hugely overpaid (though it is several times what most people receive) until you realize that the salary will remunerate Grayling for “about 7 hours per week”. A day a week, and £100K a year… Nearly £300 per hour, or over £2,000 for a 7-hour week. On top of his MP salary (and expenses) and whatever else he is dragging down.
What does one expect of a country that has a useless c**t like Boris-idiot at its helm? I notice that even a deadhead like Toby Young has now woken up:
Yesterday, I blogged that Boris-idiot seemed crushed, in fact flattened, at PMQs. I do not entirely attribute that to Angela Rayner’s fairly brutal putdown. As I blogged, it seems to me that, for the first time, “Boris” has now himself woken up to the fact that his heart is not in the job of being a Prime Minister; perhaps also to the fact that he is useless at it.
Anyone English or British who tries to indoctrinate British children with “BLM” nonsense and poison is poisonous, and an enemy.
@toadmeister this is a school in Richmond. You and I have spoken before as I wanted my child to go to WLFS. Any advice as to how to tackle this, as it appears you cannot object to BLM or identity/woke politics without being accused of something dreadful.
To all those suggesting I home school or remove- what good is this? I can protect the mind of my own child but not the hundreds of other kids by doing this. They are our future and the society my own child will have to live amongst. This is not something I can fight alone.
I think so too, but it is a long time since I practised at the Bar, and I was certainly never a specialist in the construction of statute law, or in the validity of “advice” or regulations purportedly made under secondary law and/or primary law.
Quite. Also, while we are on the subject of American (government) behaviour, I have been struck by the hypocrisy of “the West” over the events in Belarus.
AsI have blogged previously, Belarus is, in effect, a dictatorship, though a far better one than many which the West supports with words and arms (inter alia, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar), not to mention China.
I daresay that there is discontent in Belarus, arising mainly from economic conditions, as well as those factors arising from relative lack of political freedom.
Having said that, the Western msm has been overplaying the “brutal tyranny” stuff. I hear on radio, see on TV, read about the repression of the discontent. Some people obviously have been badly treated, beaten etc. However, I also heard that some of those detained, and some who were ill-treated, were in fact released within hours, in some case a day or so, of having been detained.
In addition, some of the protesters themselves have admitted that the Belarus KGB and police were unwilling, generally speaking, to hit or brutalize women and old people. They obviously have some moral or ethical principles. European standards.
Compare that to how the USA often treats those whom it detains or abducts: “waterboarding”, i.e. cruel torture (in one case done dozens of times a day to a prominent prisoner, for reasons of sadism); hooding for hours, days, even weeks; cruel restraint techniques; use of attack dogs etc.
The names of the American “facilities” or concentration camps (those not still secret) are notorious: Guantanamo, Bagram, Abu Ghraib. Things were and perhaps are done there that have not been claimed even of the Soviet GULAG system, or during the German rule over Eastern Europe in the early 1940s.
Most ex-professional soldiers (in peacetime) who become MPs turn out to be useless.
To me, who was in Australia (Mosman/Cremorne, Sydney, NSW) for 2-3 years as a child of 10-13 (1967-69), it is incredible to see what a police state Australia has become. When I was there, the whole country had only 12 million people (it’s 25 million now). It was a white European-origined population, mostly of British ancestry. Now, very mixed. Result? You see it…
It occurs to me that Australia is being used as a laboratory, and its people as lab rats. Mixed population now (they have even imported Africans!); then made to fear “the virus”, with strict “lockdowns” and facemask police state-ism and all that nonsense.
Meanwhile, Australia has entered its first economic recession for about 35 years…
Why? Because the msm is basically controlled or very strongly influenced by the NWO, ZOG, and the associated Jewish lobby. That’s why…
“The Government has no legal right to impose the severe and miserable restrictions on our lives with which it has wrecked the economy, brought needless grief to the bereaved and the lonely and destroyed our personal liberty.“
“This is the verdict of one of the most distinguished lawyers in the country, the retired Supreme Court Judge Lord Sumption.
He said last week in a podcast interview: ‘I don’t myself believe that the Act confers on the Government the powers that it has purported to exercise.’”
“He was referring to the Public Health Act of 1984, the basis for almost all the sheaves of increasingly hysterical decrees against normal life which the Health Secretary Matt Hancock has issued since March. I promise you that it is not usual for a retired senior judge to use such language in public.
This 1984 Act was drawn up mainly to give local magistrates the power to quarantine the sick.
Nothing in it remotely justifies these astonishing moves – house arrest, travel restrictions, harsh limits on visiting family members, interference with funerals and weddings, closure of churches, compulsory muzzles, bans on assembly and protest.
English law just does not allow an Act of Parliament to be stretched so far.” [Peter Hitchens, quoting Lord Sumption, Daily Mail].
…and just in case you still imagine that you live in a “free country”, the Daily Mail has tipped the wink to its readers: “Sorry we are not currently accepting comments on this article.” Quite. That would be going too far, would it not? After all, some of the comments would be about ZOG and NWO, and even “the Great Reset” etc…

SNP and Scottish independence
I have always found the SNP idea of Scottish “independence” odd. Free Scotland from Westminster and England, but not from supranational bodies such as the EU, NATO (probably), the international banking matrix, or the UN.
Also, what kind of nationalism is it that says that a Pakistani born or even simply living in, say, Glasgow, is more “Scottish” than a white European, say English but with Scottish or part-Scottish ancestry, and who may be living in England, maybe only on the border at Berwick on Tweed?
If Scotland departs, then it will be considerably poorer than it now is. Money is not everything, true, but the only benefit I can see to Independence is the right to stop mass immigration etc, and the SNP policies indicate that their intention is the opposite.
Having said that, if the majority of Scots want to pull away from the Union, then I say go with good wishes, so long as you do not become an enemy state.
Thoughts about the public mood in the UK as a government of clowns tries to act like a conclave of petty tyrants (forget “statesmen”)
We have seen the government of clowns first frighten the public out of its skin, then beg members of that public to return to work (muzzled on trains and buses), and we have seen all the other contradictory policies of a government that obviously has no idea of what it is doing; abetted by a non-Opposition that really just echoes the Government.
We also see much about how many people have got used to not going to work because paid as much or nearly as much (and in net terms, maybe more) to stay home and work online, or furloughed (paid by State benefit). Now we see others than Peter Hitchens telling people off for staying home etc, when the real culprits are the Cabinet of Boris-idiot, the ludicrously-misnamed “SAGE” committee, most MPs, and the compliant msm.
The fact is that the economy is crashing to a halt or at least a low point, all so that a virus which is not killing people now, can be confronted (and so that the Government is not exposed as totally incompetent).
Today, msm reports are that 3,300 people tested positive for “the virus”, and the number that died from it was…5. Not 500, not 50, but 5.
Resistance is growing.
Rename it: “Operation Bullshot” is a good name for it.
Below: the Jew Shapps tries to fool the public once again.
Maybe the Duchess could be shown the place where they train the dogs to detect bullshit.
Where are the public on this? I detected (look at my blogs posts from as long ago as April or even March) that the public mood was by no means gung-ho to return to work etc, even discounting the fear factor so incessantly whipped up by the government.
My view was and still is that people would like a better way of organizing the work-life balance. Less work, or less frenetic work, more leisure or at least other, more personal work, nearer to home.
I have, in earlier blog posts, postulated the idea of “a society of measure” to set against both the existing (pre-virus) frenetic workaholic society and also against the 1960s idea of the “society of leisure”.
In practical terms, that could mean people working fewer hours per week, or the same number of hours per week but on fewer days, such as 10 hours a day for 4 days per week, or even 13 hours per day for 3 days per week, leaving 3-4 days per week for other activity.
My view is that there should be one day a week when all or almost all shops etc are shut. That creates rhythm in the society.
A start must also be made with Basic Income, even if at first that Income does not cover even all basic necessities.
I think that the public, as individuals and families, are ready to consider other forms of societal organization. If paid work (talking about persons employed by others) occupies 3-4 days per week, and if a measure of Basic Income exists, people will be free to start businesses of their own in the remaining 2-3 days (with 1 day as “day of total leisure”).
This is not just pie in the sky. J.K. Rowling has written about how it was only the relatively more generous “welfare” arrangements of the 1990s that enabled her to sit in cafes writing Harry Potter. It was not that more money was given, though that might also have been true in real terms, but that she was not harried by DWP staff constantly (as her equivalent would now be under a system which was made far harsher by the part-Jap Iain “Duncan” Smith and the Jew “lord” Freud and others).
Because J.K. Rowling was not harried by petty bureaucrats, she was able to write her first bestselling book, which has created a huge industry for this country: books, films, spinoffs.
My sense is that people generally want a society which is less pressured.
As for the “measures” taken by government, most people are now rather sceptical, but the constant msm propaganda (esp. but not only on the BBC) is keeping some fear instilled too.
I have no idea whether Johnny Mercer had some decent intentions when he applied for selection as a Parliamentary candidate but it is surely clear now that he is basically a woodentopped moneygrubber and a waste of space.
“Police arrived at the home of an Oxford-educated museum curator last night after she tweeted a guide on how to use domestic chemicals to destroy bronze statues in the wake of recent Black Lives Matters protests.
Madeline Odent, the privately schooledcurator of Royston Museum in Hertfordshire, sent an inflammatory series of tweets last night to her 5,164 followers, which was then shared thousands of times.
In the posts, the American-born banker’s wife revealed how to dissolve bronze statues, saying that the damage would be ‘irreversible’ and ‘practically impossible to stop’.” [Daily Mail]
Quelle surprise. The gravediggers of our European heritage.
A war is coming, which may be in part a race war, but is really better considered as a culture war. The above Daily Mail report makes it clear that the woman featured has, in effect, declared war on the people of Britain and on all white Northern European culture and civilization.
There are many like her in the UK, often in privileged or influential positions. They think that they themselves are immune, protected by wealth, privilege and a police force which now often seems to have inbuilt bias towards affluent yet anti-British persons.

Many are asking when the police or government will act properly to protect these vestiges of our proud history. The answer is— probably never, because Westminster has fallen, the mainstream media have fallen (long ago), the police have fallen, the whole edifice of society is at least falling, and soon it will be up to the British people to take the necessary actions, those actions that “established authority” has quite deliberately decided not to take, to protect our culture, civilization and future.
Who or what is behind the war on white people and our history?
Not the blacks, who are almost invariably incapable of organizing anything. No, you have to look to the Zionists and others embedded in the power structures. They are the ones who are using “Black Lives Matter” etc for their own purposes. Put another way, this is part of “The Great Replacement”, or to express the same idea in yet another way, “White Genocide”.
Not just the USA; the UK too. In fact all of Europe. The propaganda is incessant.
I am not exactly a fan of Katie Hopkins (or Churchill, for that matter), but her comments here are worth a hearing:
…and to shoplift with impunity, I suppose!
More seriously, resist facemasks, resist the petty tyrants trying to enforce “social distancing” etc. The virus has pretty much come and gone. The British people can now rise up and cast off their shackles. Only then can they fight in the upcoming culture wars.
The Labour Party thinks that all it has to do to win a general election is to wait for Boris-idiot and his government of fools to mess up. Well, there is some basis for that, as witness the latest opinion polling, but it is probably more accurate to say that the two parties are converging in the polls, but that all that is happening is that the Conservative Party is reverting to a slight lead over Labour.
When one looks at Labour Friends of Israel Keir Starmer and Angela Rayner bending the knee in fealty to the anti-British mob, it becomes impossible to see them as leading a government.
The Conservative Party did not win the 2019 General Election; Labour lost it. See below:
In 2019, the misnamed “Conservatives” did not gain many voters (contrary to the msm narrative); their vote increased by only one percentage point vis a vis 2017. Labour, however, lost eight points vis a vis 2017. Half of those Labour losses were former Labour voters simply abstaining.
A major reason why Labour failed in 2019 is because very many English and Welsh people thought of it as anti-white. I doubt that Labour can get back from that. Politics is becoming polarized, partly on racial lines but more on racial-cultural lines.
The present government is plainly incompetent, but I doubt that Labour can persuade the voters that it can be trusted either.
My conclusion from the above is that the British people are crying out for social-national leadership, though largely unconsciously.
The latest UK censorship news…
Idiots like Piers Morgan start balls rolling but then find out that they keep rolling and end up doing damage all over the place. The msm talking heads, “our” corrupt and stupid MPs, the “celebrity” idiots, all bowing down to the black/brown mobs and “antifa” thugs, and all bending the knee in sign of fealty to the forces of evil destruction….where do they think this will end, this thing that they themselves have triggered? Either in the destruction of our civilization or in the destruction of the inferior elements in it.
That’s (((their))) idea. It’s called “The Great Replacement” and, if carried out, will be the end of everything decent in Western culture and civilization in the end…
Below, today’s thick Irish tweet of the day:
“N-word“? Oh, he must mean “nigger“…
and a notorious Jew twitter troll (below) thinks that “the answer” is to “edit out” the word “nigger”… In the immortal words of Mandy Rice-Davies, “well, he would, wouldn’t he?”
Yes, let’s censor Fawlty Towers because one character in one episode uses one arguably undiplomatic word once or twice. Because the BBC now would never use offensive words…oh, no, wait…
Greetings to all well-intentioned readers of my blog this evening. Anyone (((not well-intentioned))), get lost while you still can. Apropos of nothing…
Some more tweets seen
I disagree with Griffin here. Leave Marx in Highgate Cemetery. In fact, give him some company, such as anyone who wants to destroy British or any white European history and culture. Give him thousands of companions…
Peter Hitchens writing about “where to go if one were to emigrate”. When you examine it, not so easy to decide (assuming you have a choice) as may be at first imagined.
Of course, anyone emigrating from the UK now is giving up the struggle against the untermenschen and barbarians…
The next few years (2020-2027) can be compared to the period 1987-1994. Huge changes.
The Tim Montgomeries of this world never quite awaken to what is behind manifestations such as the “bending knee” nonsense promoted by UK/USA msm, politicians, “celebrities” etc. (((NWO/ZOG))).
The “Tim Montgomeries” of this world regard events such as the tearing down of white Northern European history as just…events. Nothing behind it all. A kind of unplanned, unexpected wave of events, akin to a car crash. No, monsieur Montgomerie! Wake UP!
Wake up to the ZOG conspiracy that is behind this. Evil hiding in plain sight.
Oh, and, Montgomerie, forget this meaningless “right/left” idea. The true basis is European v. non-European.
Build “bridges” to the evil untermenschen who want to bury us? No, we need to build scaffolds.
Here (below), an example of camp “Conservative” decadence. Matthew Parris:
So let’s write some history, in a way that will have “Conservative” decadents such as Matthew Parris and Fraser Nelson tearing out their own hair…

Friday 12 June
As far as the UK is concerned, Coronavirus is now almost in the past. What is not in the past is the damage done (by “lockdown”/shutdown) to the economy. To say that is not to prioritize “money” before “people”. Countries without functioning economies cannot maintain sophisticated or even adequate health services (and if you think that Cuba proves otherwise, look more closely at Cuba).
“What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander”, it is said. There is a possibility that the “freedom-fighter” will have his statue in London relocated to the bottom of the Thames soon.
I should imagine that, overall, Nelson Mandela did a great deal more harm in this world than the Bristol merchant and slave-trader Edward Colston.
In fact, this morning I heard some typical BBC Radio 4 propaganda piece about Robben Island, where Mandela was incarcerated after having been found guilty, in the 1960s, of plotting to start a race war in South Africa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robben_Island
The BBC drone or guest broadcast that he himself had visited Robben Island, which he said is 7 miles off the coast (it’s 4 miles, but I suppose that I may have misheard kilometres as miles).
By the way, when Mandela, who had been (somewhat) educated as a lawyer, turned to direct political violence in the mid-1950s, he was no naive young man. He was nearly 40 years old. In fact he failed his LLB (law degree) three times and only finally passed it in 1988, when he was a celebrity prisoner aged 70.
Incidentally, Mandela was not sent to Robben Island for “political activism”, but for conspiring to start a race war and for conspiring to commit sabotage etc. In the UK today, he would be convicted of terrorist offences on similar facts.
Most of the defence advocates for the several defendants were Jews.
At the end of the trial (which took 8 months), Mandela was allowed to make a 3 hour speech! Try that in a British court! So much for Mandela having been chucked into prison after an unjust show trial…
In fact, Mandela was moved from Robben Island in 1982 to another prison, where he had his own quarters and was given medical care at a high level (including a prostate operation at a hospital). Later, he was moved again, and lived in a house inside that prison. He even had his own cook! Hardly the GULAG archipelago…
“Mandela’s 70th birthday in July 1988 attracted international attention, including a tribute concert at London’s Wembley Stadium that was televised and watched by an estimated 200 million viewers. Although presented globally as a heroic figure, he faced personal problems when ANC leaders informed him that Winnie had set herself up as head of a gang, the “Mandela United Football Club”, which had been responsible for torturing and killing opponents—including children—in Soweto.” [Wikipedia]
I shall be interested to see whether Mandela’s statue in Parliament Square, London, is taken down by action directe.
Saw tweets from a very biased, anti-British, anti-white, academic historian (and now author), but what perplexes me is the reference here:
I had previously assumed (for several reasons) that this person must be Jew or part-Jew (despite the “Irish” surname), but this tweet puzzled me.
Admittedly, I am probably not very deeply informed about Jewish dietary rules (they call them kashrut), but my understanding is that oats, being vegetable, are what Jews call parev, i.e. neither dairy produce nor meat.
Surely “milk” made from oats is still parev, however like real milk it is? In any case, I had thought that anything parev could be eaten with either meat or dairy produce, so long as those two were themselves not mixed. I expect that I am missing something (or was the tweet a kind of joke?). (and why am I wasting time on this? I think that I need some breakfast myself…).
Now (Friday evening) I have just heard Cressida Dick, Common Purpose member and Commissioner of Metropolitan Police, say that those [i.e. “Black Lives Matter” non-whites and “Antifa” idiots and thugs] planning to come to London tomorrow to “protest” [i.e. deface and/or tear down statues of historical personalities] should not come to London because there are those “intent on disorder” [white British people —mainly, overwhelmingly— intent on defending their history, culture and civilization from untermenschen and/or the mob].
The inference is clear: the Metropolitan Police Commissioner is basically on the side of the mob, of the untermenschen, of the traitors. The mob are those merely “protesting”, the defenders of Britain are those “intent on disorder”. She just wants the “de-legitimizing” of the British people —and European bloodlines— to be done without [white] “disorder”…
The ordinary police are just tools, and are under the command now of subversives posing as “senior police officers”.
Peter Hitchens: “A combination of fiery Leftism and Ukip-type patriotism could be the very thing to sweep away the So-Called Conservative Party which represents nothing except the careers of its MPs and the interests of its donors” [Peter Hitchens, Daily Mail]
As usual, Hitchens gets it half-right… Britain does not want or need UKIP-style fake “patriotism” but true social-nationalism. Oh, and ditch that fake “left/right” stuff, that was outworn even before the Second World War.
Where Hitchens is at least on the right track is in noticing that the new revolutionary party (if one emerges) and its victory can be, I hope will be, both social and national; it needs to be both.
This made me laugh:
BBC World Service
The World Service was so good in the 1970s, 1980s, but is now pretty much unlistenable. Politically correct, with ignorant presenters, and all run (quite obviously) on a shoestring.
Oh, well, time to say goodnight. Goodnight England…
