The Bar continues to dig its own grave

https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/legal-regulators-pledge-to-stamp-out-non-inclusive-misconduct-/5112701.article.

This (read that report) is a trend that has been going on for 2-3 decades now. I could recount numerous examples from my own experience. One of the least egregious would be that involving a pupil in my own chambers in Exeter (in the early/mid 1990s, I was practising in London, but after working and living in various places overseas from 1996-2002, returned to the practising Bar in SW England in mid-2002).

The pupil to whom I refer (and who shall be nameless, partly out of courtesy but equally because I have actually forgotten her name), was from Northern Ireland.

Now I have to say that I find the Northern Irish accent one of the most difficult in the UK to understand easily but, in addition to that, the girl in question had a pretty bad speech impediment.

You might ask why on Earth someone with a bad speech impediment wanted to go to the Bar in the first place, or was not sidetracked into other career options at an earlier stage, but there it is. Of course, not all barristers spend much of their time in court.

Now, said girl pupil was, like many Bar pupils, far more obliging and pleasant when a pupil (and no doubt trying to get along pleasantly with members of chambers) than she was once taken on as a tenant or —as I think she was, cannot now recall exactly— squatter (a quasi-tenant but with no rights of tenure). I myself only saw her in passing, really, but did note that, once she was actually working as barrister, she seemed rather abrasive, judging admittedly by the very few times I saw her at (though not in) court. I never had any trouble with her myself, and in fact saw little of her.

Now the interesting thing was that not only did chambers (notably in the person of the main Clerk to Chambers) champion that young woman, but claimed that instructing solicitors loved her. Well, maybe. Seems strange to me that someone with both a speech impediment and an accent that was more like a gargle could be at the English Bar doing court work, but there we are.

I harbour a suspicion that people tend to bend over backwards to be nice, so to speak, to the physically-disabled, as many do also to some of the ethnic minorities. That is fine as far as it goes, but not when it amounts to a kind of lie.

Incidentally, I seem to remember that the person noted above returned, in the end, to her native Ulster, and maybe left the practising Bar.

Digressing further, I happened, out of curiosity today, to look at the website of the successor chambers to the one to which I belonged in Exeter from 2002-2008 (and which, an amalgam of two or three sets, is now the largest in the South West outside Bristol). I saw that several people that I liked are still there, and I saw that not only (as I knew already) is my old head of chambers now “His Honour” (a Circuit Judge) but that someone else I knew in chambers, a former magistrates’ clerk, with an encylopaedic knowledge of some aspects of (in particular) criminal law, is now also “His Honour”. Unless it is just someone with an identical name, but I think not.

That last was a nice little man, very polite and pleasant, who wore his considerable knowledge lightly. I seem to recall that he had written a well-received book on sentencing. Glad to see that his knowledge and diligence has been rewarded.

I was amused to see that two people who had rather more than a spat in chambers are now both members of that set. I liked both of them. One was a then-young man who was very eager to progress chambers (my wife called him a “Young Turk” for his enthusiastic diligence, but in these dumbed-down times, I suppose I shall have to explain that he was not a real Turk!). He was married to a pretty young woman whom I believe I met once at some chambers reception or other.

The other barrister, also young, was an ex-solicitor whose grandfather had founded one of the largest firms of solicitors in the South West. A very pleasant person.

Those people, with others in chambers, used to go shooting together, an activity of which I thoroughly disapproved. I disapprove of all hurt done to animals, particularly for sport or “fun”. I even disapprove of shooting humans, under most circumstances. Ironically, most of those I liked best in chambers were the shooters.

Anyway, one day, those two members of chambers were out shooting when a pheasant fell onto the head of the wife of the “Young Turk” and knocked her out in the field. Whether that preceded or not the affair that she apparently had with the other young barrister, I know not. It later transpired that, after much bad blood, I was the only member of chambers to be unaware of the feud that ensued, my mind being occupied by other matters (or as my wife would say, “in the clouds”) and, also, the fact that I was, by then, only spending half the month in the UK, the rest in France and some other countries.

I suppose that the two former antagonists have either buried the hatchet or (and/or) come to the realistic conclusion that that set is more or less “the only game in town” (in Exeter) now. Time heals all wounds, they say (though I remain doubtful of that, speaking generally). The events in question were after all some 15 or 16 years ago now.

Did that apply to freeloading “charity” bod Brendan Cox, and/or barrister and former scribbler Rupert Myers, or did their offences not even get to the stage of being investigated by police?

I was blogging months ago that the forces of the Kiev regime would soon be running short of military resources, particularly fuel and ammunition.

J.H. Brennan

I discovered today that J.H. Brennan, whose early 1970s books Astral Doorways and Experimental Magic I owned from 1978 (when I was 21-22 y-o), is still alive, now aged 81: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Herbert_Brennan.

A pretty good writer, in my opinion, with an easy-reading style (judging by the few books of his that I have read).

Interesting analysis, and I can agree with much of it, though I do not accept that neurotic bighead, Gordon Brown’s, bailout of the bank swine was right at all— better to have let them go bust, imprison the wealthy bankers, then step in to help those with say £200,000 or less on deposit; and let the affluent and wealthy go smoke.

I agree that the “austerity” nonsense of the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne was disastrous, causing misery to millions without in any way dealing with the real problems of the financial sector and “national debt”.

As to cryptocurrencies, it is true that they are “without intrinsic value“, but that is also true of conventional currencies. I took a look at all that years ago on the blog: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/12/10/thoughts-about-bitcoin/.

If a sustained recession/slump/depression is around the corner, there yet might be time for social-nationalism to triumph. Remember 1929-1933…

If I say so myself, another blog post that has worn very well indeed.

From 2019

I see that the blog post about the Jew-Zionists plotting in the Labour Party, below, from almost three years ago, has had a few hits. Having just reread it, I think that it, also, has stood the test of time rather well: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/11/9853/.

I have still not worked out why almost all Jews, at least on Twitter, are fanatically pro-lockdowns, the “vaccines”, and pro the facemask nonsense (almost all facemasks are useless, as can be seen easily in cold temperatures, where the vapour is seen escaping as people breathe; “Covid” is water-borne…).

No doubt the Jews concerned would claim that they hold those views because they are terribly intelligent and/or educated, but my experience of them as a group leads me to think not…

A puzzle.

Basically, a billion pounds a year wasted on a horde of uninvited, useless, often hostile interlopers and invaders. While British people freeze in doorways, sleep in cars, and otherwise struggle.

The “refugees welcome dimwits”, and moneygrubbing cheats such as expenses fraudster “lord” Dubs (a Jew who entered the UK just before WW2) should be placed before a people’s court.

1939. Bette Davis looked very different when I saw her close-up in the flesh, about 47 years later.

“Call no man happy until he is dead”

Nearly 4 years ago, I posted a blog article with the above title. In it, I examined, inter alia and I hope humorously, the post-school life-courses of a few people I knew as a teenager. https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/07/02/call-no-man-happy-until-he-is-dead/

Now, the fates of a few other people I knew, but this time I knew them between the ages of 5-10. Of the three people noted, two are already dead, despite having been my contemporaries. A reminder that we must all do what we can for the race and the world during our short incarnations.

The first is Dominic Beer, who when I knew him, aged 5-7, was a small child of a like age, who lived across a wide road from my own home in Caversham Heights, now and even then a suburb of Reading, situated on high ground across the Thames, a few miles from the town itself and on the border of Oxfordshire.[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caversham_Heights].

Dominic was a dark-haired, quick-witted, clever child, quite friendly, who seemed older than his years. As I recall, his mother was smallish and dark-haired too; I do not recall his father (maybe I never saw him), though I vaguely recall that Dominic had a (younger?) sister.

Not sure why, but I got the impression when visiting his home, if I recall aright (this was around 1961-62, i.e. 60 years ago), that there was something different, perhaps foreign, about Dominic and his family. I now know that Beer can be German or Jewish, but I would not have known that then.

I knew no Jews, and the only German I had ever encountered, outside the realms of comic books and war films on black and white TV, or watching my All Our Yesterdays [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Our_Yesterdays_(TV_series)] with my grandparents (my grandfather having been both at Dunkirk and in Burma during WW2), was my mother’s German part-time au pair, Ilka, a kind, bespectacled girl of about 18, who really worked for (and lived with) another family in the neighbourhood, but with whom she did not get on well; Ilka therefore split her time.

I still remember that, when she returned to Germany, Ilka gave my brothers and me little wash-bags with items such as coloured soap in the shape of a puppy-dog. Very German, I suppose. A nice girl. She must be, if still alive, about 78 now.

Be that as it may, I lost touch with Dominic Beer (despite the physical proximity of our homes) after his parents moved him from Caversham Primary School (a couple of miles away) to a private prep school called Hemdean House (not very far, maybe a half-mile, from our homes). I think that, before that, when still aged about 5, we had shared, with a couple of other children, rides to and from school in an ancient green car known as “Mr. Shute’s taxi”. Old Mr. Shute had a garage (I think no fuel, and mainly repairs done) some distance away, but still within the area.

Dominic apparently went on to the well-known school, Leighton Park, a Quaker establishment in Reading, the alumni of which have included Michael Foot (one-time Labour Party leader), Richard Rodney Bennett (composer), David Lean (film director), and Nathaniel Parker (actor), among many others.

Whatever his origins, Dominic was apparently “converted” to active Christianity while a student [Wadham, Oxford]. I saw this:

Dominic went to Wadham College, Oxford in 1975 to study German and History, but even then was considering medicine. Discovering that having no science A-levels did not necessarily disbar him, he started 1st MB at Guys in 1978, and graduated in 1984. He developed an interest in psychiatry and began a training rotation at Guys, interrupting this with Wellcome Foundation support to gain his MD in the history of psychiatry.

In 1994 he was appointed consultant at Bexley Hospital, Kent, for a locked 15-bedded ‘challenging behaviour’ ward, and shocked by the lack of purpose and definition, the bad conditions, and the siege mentality, he and colleagues researched psychiatric intensive care units nationally. This led to founding the National Association of Psychiatric Intensive Care and Low Secure Units (NAPICU) and to co-editing the first textbook in the field, Psychiatric Intensive Care.

As his career progressed until early retirement on medical grounds in 2011, he held many teaching, lecturing and examining posts within London University; published some 70 research papers; refereed for journals; took on more management and fund-raising responsibilities; and was recognised as a leader who modelled his concern that patients requiring psychiatric intensive care should be treated in ‘a decent and concerned way’. That same colleague described his light touch in tricky situations (‘extraordinary legerdemain’), his calming presence, and his being always unflappable. They still ask sometimes ‘What would Dominic do?’ “[See also: https://www.cmf.org.uk/resources/publications/content/?context=article&id=26079].

So when, in the mid/late 1970s, I was struggling with political matters and theory, while also working in low-level occupations, or travelling and having misadventures in places like Rhodesia, Dominic was a medical student. Was my life “the road less travelled”?

I saw this, too:

Dr Dominic Beer was a consultant psychiatrist with Oxleas Mental Health Trust for many years. He was a PICU and challenging behaviour expert but also a cricketer, historian, artist and family man. He died in April 2013 from cancer and is survived by his loving wife and four children, parents, sister, friends, innumerable clinicians and patients whose lives he touched with his counsel and wisdom.” [http://www.beerharrismemorialtrust.org/dominic.htm].

Dominic Beer was also, in later life, a noted painter.

Dominic died, it seems, in 2013, from cancer.

[Addendum, 18 January 2022: just saw this Daily Telegraph obit., but it is behind a paywall, and I refuse to pay, so have not read it: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/10186242/Dominic-Beer.html].

Another child I knew up to the age of 9 or 10 was one Michael Streather, who was like a 50-year old professor at the age of 8! He later attended Christ’s Hospital and then, after degrees at Bristol, York, and City University in London, became another one involved with mental health, though as strategic analyst of health services, his last title being “Head of Intelligence (Mental Health)”, based at Cambridge, where it seems that he was also an active member of the Labour Party:

I am pretty sure that he is the one wearing sunglasses in the above tweet photos.

Michael Streather died, it seems, in 2019, at age 62 or so.

A third contemporary, Mark Burgess, is still living, and thriving; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Burgess_(children%27s_author).

Like Michael Streather, a Christ’s Hospital scholar, and another child who always struck me as middle-aged despite being only 8 or so. I remember him as someone who had a serious problem with his legs (he used crutches) at age (?) 7 or 8. A serious child, by my recollection.

His Wikipedia entry does not, oddly, mention either the crutches or his home in Caversham Heights from when he was aged 7 or 8 until at least the age of 14 (in 1970, when I last met him at his parents’ large but seemingly slightly gloomy —just an impression from long ago— house, walking distance from my own, after my family returned from Australia).

It seems that Mark Burgess has written and illustrated 30 books and illustrated nearly 40 others as well. Quite an achievement.

Interesting, to track people through life.

I have read, over decades, enormous quantities from Americans about how their supposed Constitutional right to bear arms guarantees their liberty etc. How is that working out? Not well, I think. As Hitler said, “it’s not the weapon, it’s the man behind it [that matters].”

As I have been blogging for a while, the transnational conspiracy has exactly such tactics in mind. The “Covid” “panicdemic” is one way of introducing a global or at least “Western” police state, but there are other ways too, the fear of “terrorism” being one. The whole “climate change” narrative, too.

Diary Blog, 15 November 2021, including thoughts about charities and “good causes”

Charities

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10202001/Charity-employing-Carrie-Johnson-paid-bosss-wife-150-000-design-services-accounts-show.html

The newspaper report relates to the Aspinall Foundation [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Aspinall_Foundation].

The charity that employs Carrie Johnson paid more than £150,000 to its chairman’s wife for interior design services last year.

The figure paid by the Aspinall Foundation equates to ten per cent of all donations received from public and corporate donors in 2020.

The organisation and its sister charity the Howletts Wild Animal Trust are already being investigated by the Charity Commission over their spending and financial management.”

The Daily Mail report triggers thoughts about several different areas: the present rotten government, headed by part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer, “Boris” Johnson and his Cabinet of clowns; the whole area of charities and “good causes”; and a few personal reminiscences.

The Aspinall Foundation was founded by the egregious John Aspinall [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Aspinall_(zoo_owner)],

Aspinall’s mother was later married to Sir George Osborne [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_George_Francis_Osborne,_16th_Baronet], one of their 3 children being Sir Peter Osborne, who married a Hungarian-Jewish woman, that couple then having 4 children, one of whom is Gideon “George” Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer under David Cameron-Levita.

In other words, George Osborne is related to the present head of the Aspinall Foundation, Damian Aspinall (son of John Aspinall).

Around 1995, when I still lived in Little Venice, West London, I was acquainted with a lady of middle age called…well, let’s just call her by my nickname for her, “Mouse” (probably now-deceased). That lady had known John Aspinall’s brother or rather (I think) half-brother, rather well, and had stayed at the country house in Kent which also houses the zoo:

Over drinks at “the Bunker”, our name for the cellar bar at the Colonnade Hotel in Little Venice, I was told Mouse’s assessment of John Aspinall: ruthless, someone who much preferred animals to people, and who regarded the death of keepers at the zoo (five of whom were killed by the animals) as not very important; collateral damage, if you like.

Photo 1
[Colonnade Hotel, London W.9. “The Bunker” was under the garden area shown]

Apparently, in his early days as an illegal or near-legal gaming operator, in the 1950s, Aspinall had more than once had to ask his wife for her jewellery, to cover outstanding gaming debts.

By 1960, though, Aspinall’s activities had brought fortune, if not always a good name.

The present Aspinall, Damian Aspinall, son of John, is extremely wealthy, and his wealth is said to have come from real estate operations unconnected, originally, with gambling as such: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damian_Aspinall.

Whatever may be said about the way in which the Aspinall Foundation is said to be run, the work it has done with wild animals is said to have been very good, and in some respects pioneering.

Judging from what I have both read and been told, it seems that both Aspinall father and Aspinall son could say, “I did it my way“…

What about charities generally? There has been much criticism over the years of the loose oversight exercised by the Charity Commission.

Charity was originally a matter for the individual or the (Roman Catholic) Church. Taxation scarcely came into the matter. Once England started to become a more secular society, in Tudor times, legislation had to regulate what was or was not a “charitable” activity. The Statute of Elizabeth [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charitable_Uses_Act_1601] set down a list of “charitable” activities.

The Statute of Elizabeth was repealed in the 19thC, but the list of what is considered charitable still largely stands, clarified (or not) by case law precedent.

That is why, for example, the National Lottery of the UK has a fund not for “charity” but for “good causes”, a far wider ambit.

Many of the public concerns around charities have been caused by the way in which the larger charities soliciting money from the public pay their top-level employees. For many, it was shocking to learn that the husband of assassinated MP, Jo Cox, one Brendan Cox, was not only a sex pest and rapist or near-rapist [https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5404241/Jo-Coxs-husband-admits-sex-pest-resigns.html] but was being paid something like £200,000 by the charity Save the Children, which churns out tearjerk TV ads and so on, which ads solicit donations and bequests from kind-hearted members of the public.

Indeed, Cox’s friend and fellow sex-pest, Justin Forsyth, who had been at the material times chief executive of Save the Children, had to resign from UNICEF after similar allegations emerged about him…see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Save_the_Children#Executive_Brendan_Cox_quits_after_women’s_complaints_of_’inappropriate_behaviour’. Forsyth had been paid about £300,000 p.a while heading Save the Children! Truly, for these bastards, charity begins at home!

There seems to be no good reason why such high salaries are paid. Brendan Cox, for example, had a rather modest academic and work background: see https://uk.linkedin.com/in/brendan-cox-433b364.

I was myself shocked to learn, many years ago, that the (effectively) fraudulent MP and expenses cheat, Derek Conway [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derek_Conway], after he was first removed from Parliament in 1997, had not only been appointed as Chief Executive of the Cats’ Protection League [now Cats’ Protection], but also been paid, if memory serves, something like £150,000 a year, a not inconsiderable sum in the 1990s. I favour that charity, which like many others has collecting tins here and there, but some of these executives, in the British Army phrase, really “tear the arse out of” their appointments.

This is very negative to the image of all charities, and leads to public distrust, thus hampering the valuable work that so many charities do.

No-one expects executives of large charitable organizations to work for nothing, or for peanuts, but there is a case, as elsewhere in our society, for decent measure.

It may be time to look again at what should constitute a charity, and to regulate the big charities, especially, more closely.

Liverpool bomb

Surprised this morning when watching a few minutes of BBC TV News (something I rarely bother with these days), and to hear the BBC reporter say that the (presumed) terrorist bomber in Liverpool had “sadly” died. What?!

No need, I think, for me to expand on my point.

Covid nonsense

While watching some news on TV briefly, also saw and heard that absurd van Tam person talking (seemingly endlessly) about “Covid” statistics. Something about how one group of people in one area had extremely high rates of hospitalization, “7.1% per 100,000 people“!

So, in a town such as Reading, of over 200,000 inhabitants, about 15 people might be hospitalized over the period mentioned (and almost all recover after a few days or a week or so).

This is a public health problem that is nowhere near existential. Scrap all “measures”, fake laws, “rules” and all but mild advice.

This will only end when people, in numbers, not only start to say “NO!” but also start to punish the “authorities”, i.e. the System, and the “facilitators” of tyranny.

If even 10,000 Austrians were to go to the centre of Vienna, each armed with a mallet or hammer, and then were to break as many shop windows, and windows of government and police offices, as possible before being captured, that would make history. 10,000 freedom fighters, each breaking (say) 20 windows. 200,000 windows! Wien— Freiheit! Wien— das ist’s!!

Not that Austrians breaking windows will be sufficient, but it would be a start…

Diary Blog, 2 July 2021, including thoughts about Batley and Spen, and about the “panicdemic” as brainwashing

Batley and Spen by-election

The result: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batley_and_Spen_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s.

My feeling was that Labour would lose, and quite possibly come third. I was not correct. Labour won narrowly or, as they say on the racecourse, “by a neck, cleverly”.

Labour got a vote-share of 35.3%. The Conservative candidate got 34.4%. George Galloway, under the banner of the Workers’ Party, did better than many expected (21.9%); I got that right, at least.

All other candidates, 13 in number, lost their deposits: LibDems 3.3%; Yorkshire Party 2.2%; 10 of the other 11 received vote-shares below half of one percent each. UKIP, on 0.4%, just beat the Monster Raving Loony (0.3%).

The English Democrats, whose candidate, Therese Hirst, wrote to my blog comments page to request a mention on this blog, came 6th, with 0.55%.

The small and supposedly “nationalist” parties were, as expected, an embarrassment.

The For Britain party leader, Anne Marie Waters, got 0.3% (97 votes). Jayda Fransen did even worse, though (like Ms. Waters) on a par with her previous forays into doomed electioneering: 0.1% (50 votes). [nb. percentages approximate].

So where to start? Firstly, by noting that the Labour Party’s winning candidate, on 35.3%, not only did worse than any previous Labour candidate in the constituency but also worse than the winning Conservative Party candidate in the first election held for the seat, in 1983 (39.6%).

Leaving aside the rigged 2016 by-election, Labour has gone down steadily in the constituency since 2017: 55.5%, 42.7%, 35.3%.

This does not somehow “save Labour”. The present Government still has a Commons majority of 80, and could in theory be in place until December 2024. Labour still has very little likelihood of being able to form even a minority government after that time. If Scotland were to pull away from the UK, Labour would be in permanent and declining Opposition; even without that, Labour has no future as a party of government.

Other points: Labour and Kim Leadbeater ran a very dishonest campaign, even delivering contradictory leaflets to different streets (depending on the race/nationality of the inhabitants). She evaded the issue of the schoolteacher driven from his home and job by Islamist zealots, for example.

The new MP is already on BBC Radio 4 Today Programme yapping about “people living side by side“, diversity etc etc. Another puppet MP. Useless for the people who elected her.

As for Batley’s chances of getting central government assistance now, forget it. The locals must be a pretty stupid lot. They have elected a communitarian drone whose economic knowledge stops at spouting nonsense about “magic money trees”…

The Conservatives ran a lily-livered campaign, which seemed cunning but ultimately fell flat. The candidate deliberately shunned publicity (I thought, though I am judging from hundreds of miles away). The noise was all about Kim Leadbeater and George Galloway.

I thought that Galloway might get more than 20%, and I was right in that. 21.9%. He must be pleased with such a result.

As far as social nationalism is concerned, there was no social-national candidate, just absurd one-trick-pony candidates playing at politics. Anne Marie Waters and, even less credible, Jayda Fransen.

Labour continues to be the party of, mainly, the blacks and browns, publicly-paid employees and a few other groups. It is less than ever the party of (most of) the white English.

Other points? Well, the pathetic LibDem result was par for the course. Since the 2010 upsurge, the LibDems have lost their deposits in all Westminster elections contested by them at Batley and Spen.

Turnout, at 47.6%, was not especially low for a by-election.

About 73% of those who voted, voted for a System party. Over half of those eligible to vote abstained from voting. So about two-thirds of the entire eligible electorate either voted non-System, or decided not to vote at all.

Tweets seen

A tweet which shows not only how out of touch many Twitter-twits are (where has she been since 2010? Was she in outer space in 2019?), but how mutually-isolated are different socio-political “tribes” in the UK.

Good point. Until the seat is abolished, the Batley and Spen electorate will be represented at Parliament by a communitarian System drone with not an interesting or original thought in her head, dragging down £200,000 p.a. in pay and expenses, and accomplishing nothing, while the voters of Batley moulder in poverty and despair.

Political joke Paul Mason opines…in fact, he is right about the two “leaders” that he mentions in his tweet. Social nationalism in terms of electoral politics is scarcely even a bad joke; The two ladies together got only 147 votes at the Batley and Spen by-election, scarcely 0.3% of the total vote. One vote for about every 300 cast. Embarrassing.

Mason is not right about “terror networks” of what he would call, no doubt, “the far right”. They do not even exist, as far as I know anyway. Young men buying samurai swords, young women having swastika-shaped cookie-cutters, and people talking big in pubs, do not constitute a “terror threat”…

As for Mason’s “danger…online“, what he means is that people might be able to persuade other people to a certain viewpoint online. Mason hates free speech, so calls that a “danger”…

“John Smith” gives an accurate, if ungrammatical, riposte to sex pest communitarian grasper Brendan Cox, who thinks that it is worth trashing the UK if a few blacks become England-team footballers.

The “panicdemic” is such an exercise in applied psychology that dictators, oppressive political regimes, and academic scribblers will probably be using its lessons for decades, and maybe for hundreds of years, rather like the 20thC Chinese techniques called (I believe) hsi nao, or “wash brain”, taken up by the West since the Korean War as “brainwashing”: see the 1963 book, Techniques of Persuasion, by J.A.C. Brown. I once had a copy, bought by me at my school book fair in, I think, 1971.

[the first paperback edition]

Such techniques were intriguing to film-makers, and have continued to be. Early examples would include The Manchurian Candidate and The Ipcress File.

Those films focussed on individual subjects, but there is of course “brainwashing” or, more accurately, “conditioning”, of whole masses of people, whether at schools (Eton might be a good example), or during Army training, to take two obvious situations.

Recent studies have concluded that, if people are exposed to fear propaganda for months, they lose the ability to resist it even if logical, rational and credible counter-messages are then delivered to them. Put simply, emotion trumps thought, usually.

Think back to the initial panic about “the virus”, in early Spring, 2020. TV news showing shuttered towns in Italy and elsewhere, the population only allowed to take walks alone or as couples, not interacting with others at all. Curfews. Harsh methods of enforcement (particularly in the part of China where the virus supposedly just appeared as if out of nowhere).

In the UK, we have seen how even the shambolic government regime presided over by Boris-idiot applied ever-stricter laws, “rules”, “guidance” etc (which the police enforced as if all had the force of law).

Police chiefs wanting to check people’s shopping to see whether the items had been “reasonable” purchases! That caused a kefuffle because the regime had tried to impose such repression too early, before the fear propaganda had fully taken hold.

Other examples included police vandalizing beauty spots in the Peak District lest people walk to them, other police (the hopeless police of Derbyshire were arguably the worst) using drones and loudhailers to bully elderly couples walking on the hills, miles from anywhere; in Wales, some farmer and his wife, hysterical (and again calling police) because two people from elsewhere were camping overnight on a nearby hill! “They might spread Covid!“, the pathetic idiots cried and whined (to the newspaper and TV reporters who were, unmolested, also there!).

Shops and other businesses were closed down for months, the employees’ anger largely forestalled or bought off by “furlough” payments. Result: the UK has spent £300 BILLION.

It is said “no matter, interest rates are almost zero”. In that case, why did the UK governments of the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita, Theresa May, and “Boris” Johnson apply so-called “austerity” for a decade, causing a huge amount of misery, in order to “save” far less than the sums now wasted for no good reason? Why was a huge investment in infrastructure not undertaken? Instead, vast amounts have been spent on paying the population to sit at home eating delivered pizza, watching TV, and drinking.

Then came the facemask nonsense. Large-scale trials which showed that facemasks (except the kind used in laboratories) were of minimal utility (and also caused other health problems) were ignored. The Government mandated facemasks (often little more than cloth muzzles or quasi-scarfs) in shops etc. Mandated them on pain of a heavy fine.

At first, up to mid-2020, both the UK Government and the World Health Organization [WHO] disparaged the use of facemasks, but later came under political pressure to change their advice, which is what happened.

The World Economic Forum [WEF] openly proclaimed how wonderful the “panicdemic” was as a driver to start a “Great Reset” of the world.

Well, now we are 18 months on, and the UK public, at least the majority, have shown themselves to be malleable pawns, without any regard for the freedoms won over centuries. One sees many wearing their facemasks even in their own cars, or while walking on windswept clifftops etc. Do they know that they have been brainwashed? Do they even care?

I think that it was the popular music group, Pink Floyd, in the early 1970s, maybe on Dark Side of the Moon, who had a track in which they sang that “…quiet desperation is the English way“. That might have to be changed, these days, to something like “spineless compliance, and apathy, is the English way”…

Meanwhile, we hear that 50,000 or 60,000 people have died in the UK “within 28 days of a positive test” (until recently, it was “from Covid”…), though (what a shock…) apparently no-one at all has died of flu for 18 months in the UK! Incidentally, if someone “tests positive” (often because the tests are flawed), even if having no symptoms, then weeks later dies in a car crash…yes, that’s right…that person “dies within 28 days of a positive test”!

The brainwashed nature of the population can be seen in the relative lack of anger or even questioning at the incongruity. Suddenly, instead of tens of thousands of deaths from influenza etc, there is substituted “deaths from Covid”, but most people are still, even now, obeying the so-called “laws”, “rules” etc. Even though their rational minds must know that this is a kind of scam on a vast scale.

Again, every day now we are seeing such as “today, 20,000 people tested positive”, followed by “and three people died within 28 days…(etc)”

In the UK, the msm has been totally compliant to the wishes of the State. In the msm and the “corridors of power”, only a few independent minds have stood up against the propaganda lies. Peter Hitchens [on Twitter as @clarkemicah] was one. Former Law Lord, Jonathan Sumption, was another. See https://twitter.com/SumptionUpdates.

About 1 out of 1,000 in the UK has died supposedly “of” or “with” or “within 28 days of a test”. Some people claim, speciously, 1 out of 500. Even so, this was never a nation-breaking pandemic. In the wider world, about 1 person has died out of every 4,000 people.

Inmates at the American concentration camp at Guantanamo were forced to wear facemasks nearly 20 years ago. To break them, not to save them from infection. Think about it.

[prisoners at the United States concentration camp, Guantanamo Bay, with female guard]

We are facing an attempt, starting in 2022, to implement a new stage of the New World Order conspiracy. Various campaigns are part of that: Covid-19 “measures”, “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, fake “environmental” measures, “anti-racism” campaigns etc.

Diary Blog, 11 June 2021, including thoughts about politicization of charities, and about the Maya Forstater case

The charity sector— a “rotten borough”

Sadly, the charity sector has, over decades, developed into a “rotten borough”. There have been so many scandals. Oxfam alone has had many. Legal and political scandals around “charitable status”; sex scandals; money-related scandals. Why?

I believe that, looking at the larger charities, the basic problem is one of focus, going back to those recruited.

There was always a “campaigning” aspect to many of these charities, inasmuch as many of them have always regarded it as part of their remit to campaign for changes in the law, or changes in public behaviour. Examples would include the Salvation Army, and the League Against Cruel Sports, to name but two.

There is inevitably a grey area between such “political” or socio-political campaigning, and outright politicking. This came to a head in the 1980s when it emerged that Oxfam was spending huge amounts of money (money mainly donated by well-meaning members of the public) not only on direct alleviation of poverty in Africa (etc), and not even on effective but indirect poverty-alleviation (eg supporting schools in Africa), but on political propaganda such as anti-apartheid stuff (the false narrative being that poverty in Africa as a whole was somehow caused by apartheid in South Africa, despite the fact that the Africans in South Africa were often better off than Africans in other African states).

In fact, the now nearly 30 years of (notional) black African rule in South Africa have proven that apartheid was not the only or even main factor holding back 99.9% of South African blacks. The new South Africa has quite as much inequality of capital and income as the old South Africa, together with rocketing crime and corruption. All that and virtue-signalling too!

In the UK charity/NGO sector, there have been all the scandals around money and sex, such as at Save The Children, where the head of the organization was getting about £400,000 a year, and where his cronies at the top were getting £200,000 or more, one such crony being the sex-pest Brendan Cox, the then husband of Labour Party MP Jo Cox (who was assassinated in 2016).

The roots of these problems go back to the kind of people recruited. Typical of our age: virtue-signalling “woke” hypocrites, but who are also very interested in money.

There is, also, a persistent problem with many charity staff, at the higher (careerist) levels, being anti-white, meaning anti-European race and culture.

The Maya Forstater case https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_Forstater_v_Centre_for_Global_Development

Good grief! Incredible that there are still some people who have not woken up to the idiocy of “Boris”.

Khrushchev, in his memoirs, criticized Malenkov as a “filing clerk” and said that that was the worst kind of person to have power given to him. In our society, in the UK of 2021, we have given power to chancers such as “Boris” and little Matt Hancock, but in reality to those behind them, such as the narrowminded medical and statistics zealots of “SAGE” (aka “DUMB”, the Department Under Matt and Boris). Not to mention types such as Dominic Cummings. Result? Misery…

“The land of freedom”…

The UK’s multikulti toytown police state in operation. Pathetic, yet at the same time chilling…

Of course, The Handmaid’s Tale is fiction, literary fantasy, but reflective of a outline of possible future reality, just as The Protocols of Zion are literary fantasy yet in a sense “true”, in that they clothe the reality which is coming to pass via, inter alia, NWO, ZOG, the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, the “Covid-19” “situation” etc.

Incidentally, I see that Martin Daubney’s clip shows Vauxhall Underground Station. I wonder how many, if any (?) SIS staff who use that station, and are not asleep, and see what “British” society now is, have any reservations about defending it?

Sadly, many British people are now scared rabbits, wearing bloody facemasks even in the open air, even when walking alone. That applies particularly to the older population; as to the younger, “woke virtue-signalling idiots” covers many of them. I expect no revolt from the majority, just frightened compliance, maybe with more “North Korea-lite” clapping on command…

There is only one way…

I have not had the vaccine(s); I shall not have the vaccine(s). In youth, I always hoped to die in battle. Who knows…That may now be unlikely, but never say never…

Well…does that come under “cultural appropriation”, “cultural insult”, or some sub-species of “white genocide”?

Diary Blog, 6 June 2021, including the upcoming by-elections— Chesham and Amersham, and Batley and Spen

Belated Saturday quiz

I forgot about the i paper quiz yesterday. So here it is:

Image

Only 5/10 this week, though I still beat John Rentoul (again); he only scored 4/10. I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 8, 9, and 10 (could not remember what LED —exactly— means, and I hit the post on the Battle of Bannockburn, knowing that it was Edward I’s successor but not knowing who the hell that was).

Tweets seen

The reference there is to Paul Halloran, the candidate at Batley and Spen of the “Heavy Woollen District Independents” in the 2019 General Election: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batley_and_Spen_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s. He scored 12.2%, a very creditable result. I mentioned the fact in my blog post of yesterday about the upcoming Batley and Spen by-election (1 July 2021): https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/06/04/the-batley-and-spen-by-election-2021/.

It seems that the said Halloran has now joined the no-chance Reclaim Party set up by the actor Laurence Fox, who now stands for free speech (except, it seems, where Jews disapprove or are mentioned). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Fox.

Halloran, Fox, and Reclaim Party have issued a statement: https://mailchi.mp/a466726a0fd3/media-statement-the-reclaim-party-and-paul-halloran?e=d4fb63896d.

https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/paul-halloran-wont-standing-batley-20751008

It is clear that Reclaim Party will never amount to anything. As far as the Batley and Spen by-election in July is concerned, the stand-aside will obviously help the Conservative candidate, but what is unknown is by how many votes. Halloran received 12.2% of the vote in 2019, true, but Fox, in the recent London Mayoral Election, only 1.9%.

I suppose that it might be surmised that Halloran, had he stood at Batley, might have garnered 5% of the by-election vote, possibly 10%, and maybe even 15%+, but the fact is that that is pure speculation. We do not know.

What we do know is that the above news is probably a blow for Labour. A few percent might decide this contest.

Chesham and Amersham by-election 2021

The Chesham and Amersham by-election is set down for 17 June 2021. It has been occasioned by the death of the sitting member, Cheryl Gillan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheryl_Gillan].

I usually abide by the maxim de mortuis nihil nisi bonum (“[say] nothing but good of the [recent] dead”) but the fact is that the recently-deceased MP was little better than a persistent and outright thief [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheryl_Gillan#Expenses] who defrauded the taxpayer out of far more than was explicitly exposed during the 2009 expenses scandal.

As to the constituency, this is rock-solid Conservative Party territory, situated at the suburban and semi-rural Northern joint termini of the Metropolitan Line.

Since the seat was created in 1974, the Conservatives have held it, at first with Ian Gilmour [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Gilmour,_Baron_Gilmour_of_Craigmillar] and then with Cheryl Gillan, who “inherited” the seat in 1992.

The lowest ebb of Conservative Party fortunes at Chesham and Amersham was 1997, but even in that year of “Labour landslide” the Conservative vote held up at 50.4%. The high-water mark was the 1992 General Election (63.3%). Even the expenses scandal did not dent Cheryl Gillan’s vote (60.4% in 2010).

Second place in elections at Chesham and Amersham has usually gone to the Liberal Democrats, but UKIP (2015, 13.7%) and Labour (2017, 20.6%) have also featured.

The LibDem vote-share fell to only 9% (and a fourth-place) in the debacle of 2015, but recovered to 13% in 2017, and to 26.3% in 2019.

As for Labour, its low point was 2010 (5.6%), and its high point 2017 (20.6%).

Eight candidates contest the by-election, the other five being Green Party, Reform Party UK, Freedom Alliance, Breakthrough Party, and Rejoin EU.

Green Party got 5.5% at Chesham and Amersham in 2019.

Reform Party UK is the rump of Brexit Party, and scored 1% in the most recent London Assembly elections.

Rejoin EU managed to get a vote of 1.1% in the 2021 London Mayoral election. Its by-election candidate is Brendan Donnelly [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan_Donnelly_(politician)], a one-time employee at the Foreign Office, who became a Conservative Party MEP in 1994, then left the Conservative Party, stood again in 1999 under the banner of the short-lived “Pro-Euro Conservative Party” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pro-Euro_Conservative_Party], failed to be re-elected, and thereafter became a serial and unsuccessful pro-EU election candidate under several flags.

Freedom Alliance is a reaction to the toytown police state created by the 2020 Coronavirus events, and is based in Huddersfield [https://freedomalliance.co.uk/], though its Chesham and Amersham by-election candidate is a former Green Party councillor who lives in High Wycombe [https://freedomalliance.co.uk/england-candidates/].

As for Breakthrough Party, it describes itself as “a democratic socialist party, led by the younger generations...” [https://breakthroughparty.org.uk/]; https://www.thecanary.co/feature/2021/04/18/a-new-political-party-wants-a-breakthrough-for-young-people/. Its by-election candidate is Carla Gregory, aged 31, a charity worker: https://www.nationalworld.com/news/politics/chesham-and-amersham-by-election-mum-of-two-standing-for-new-breakthrough-party-to-be-voice-of-unheard-3241528.

The main interest in the by-election will be that of seeing how low Labour will sink.

Well, Hitchens is sometimes worth noting, but I have to say that when I had a Twitter account (a pack of Jew-Zionists had me expelled in 2018), Hitchens blocked me mainly if not entirely because he saw that I knew more than him. My later assessment of him: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/.

Not new, of course. I wrote the following blog post over two years ago, and about a Daily Telegraph article itself written in 2012: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/02/04/white-flight-in-a-small-country/.

NWO. ZOG. The Great Reset. It’s happening right in front of our eyes, yet the majority, perhaps the vast majority, are unaware, or think it is just something to do with a virus that has killed about one in a thousand British people (and even fewer worldwide)…

Fabricant, of course, is a Jew, and was at one time an employee or agent of SIS.

British foreign aid cuts

There is a case for foreign aid. It rests, in its purest form, on charity or compassion, just like social welfare, free medical care etc in the UK domestic context. In less obviously pure form, foreign aid can be regarded as an incident of “soft power” and diplomacy.

Having said that, much foreign aid is misapplied, wasted, or stolen. I could give examples from my own overseas experience.

On BBC TV News, I saw today some woman talking (from her own rather comfortable-looking home) about the recent decision to further cut foreign aid. She was one of the directors of the long-established charity, Save the Children, which —subject to correction— I think was founded in or at the end of the First World War.

Some reading this may recall that, after the Jo Cox assassination in 2016, it came to light that the husband of that MP, the (I always thought, seeing him on TV etc) rather thuggish Brendan Cox, was exposed as a sex pest and quasi-rapist. Well, what interested me more was the fact that (if I recall aright), as something like third in command of Save the Children, Brendan Cox was being paid something like £200,000 pa. Not bad for someone with a very underwhelming academic and other background. Worse, the actual head of Save the Children was getting over £300,000 (in fact, from memory, it was nearly £400,000).

Not that I think that the head of a large organization, even a charitable one, should not be paid decently or even well, bearing in mind the skills required and responsibility held, but all the same it sits unpleasantly to see people donating pennies, or hard-scrabbled pounds, while the fat cats at the top of the tree get hundreds of thousands of pounds (and expenses) every year.

The world of international aid charities is a rotten borough. I once met a woman who was getting very well paid indeed (the equivalent of maybe £100,000 a year in today’s money), for about 2-3 days a week working for DFID as a “consultant”; she had some academic job as well. She told me that she had even been offered more money, about double, working for the UN Food and Agriculture Organization [FAO] in Rome. Her job title? [would be] “expert in food poverty”!

There’s something unclean about all that. Carpetbagging hypocrisy.

The latest news (as yet unconfirmed) about the persecuted satirist and singer is that her appeal against conviction and sentence will take place on 13 August 2021. As said, this is as yet unconfirmed. The appeal had been set down for the two days of 3-4 June 2021, but was adjourned at the request of the Crown. It may be that the appeal will now be more narrowly focussed, i.e. focussed on strictly legal arguments, and that that is why it seems now to be set down for only one day.

In the past, little happened in the courts in August, but that was then.

Diary Blog, 5 September 2020, including thoughts about the demise of the “Alt-Right”

Eric Joyce and India Knight

I may not always agree with her ideological positions, but Julie Burchill is rarely boring as a writer:

https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/08/12/the-silence-of-the-hacks/

When I still had a Twitter account, I received a couple of rude and unsolicited replies (to a tweet not addressed to him) from the then-MP Eric Joyce, and another, though on a different topic (re. MP expenses generally) from his then-fiancee, “columnist”/book scribbler India Knight. Her tweet was both presumptuous and incorrect.

As to Joyce’s own expenses, during his time as MP he managed to rip off the taxpayer in a truly royal fashion: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Joyce#Expenses_claims; https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8499753/ANDREW-PIERCE-final-shame-violent-ex-major-bragged-touch-Im-MP.html

[As some Daily Mail readers’ comments noted, Joyce was not an officer of the Black Watch (though he was a private soldier in that regiment), but later was commissioned in the Royal Logistics Corps].

As to India Knight, I laugh at her present embarrassment, but feel that it is insufficient punishment. Still, there it is.

Oh, here is the “happy couple”, at an event for dogs:

Unfortunately, neither Jew barrister/scribbler Rupert Myers, nor former hugely-overpaid charity executive and woke-drone, Brendan Cox, both sex pests and sexual assaulters of vulnerable drunken women, were ever prosecuted. I believe that both tweeted against me in the past. Myers certainly did.

Once again, persons who deserve punishment but have escaped.

In fact, “free speech” is now severely restricted in the UK, largely because of the Jewish lobby that Julia Hartley-Brewer supports, or implicitly supports. As for “democracy”, hardy ha ha.

Still, I disapprove of the Extinction Rebellion zealots, overall, and can see that the System and its police are tolerating them for covert reasons, so I repost JHB (who was another one once rude to me and also wrong, on Twitter, in the past) out of duty on this occasion.

It is a rare day when I repost material from Jewish lobby drones like Stephen Pollard and Douglas Murray, but “no religion is higher than truth” [सत्यान्नास्ति परो धर्मः]…

1902! Think about that!

So much for the “peer reviews” so beloved of the mediocre Twitterati…

Oh, and where did this “no platforming” of dissenting views start? In the campaigns by Jew-Zionists to shut down or shout down the opinions of anti-Zionists and social-nationalists. The whole idea of historical revision or inquiry being labelled “holocaust” “denial” etc. Also, people losing jobs, professions, and homes because of Jew “lawfare” (malicious complaints to police, CPS, social media sites etc).

Then there came, in parts of Europe, quasi-mediaeval laws banning what can be said or written about the Second World War, particularly the non-existent “gas chambers” etc. So called “holocaust” “denial” laws.

That tendency then spread to dissenting views about “climate change”, under the label “climate change denial”.

Now we see the same tendency in respect of “Coronavirus”. Anyone doubting any part of the officially-approved narrative, whether of the causes, spread, or treatment of “the virus” (or even things such as the facemask nonsense) is to be censored or banned…

I think that I can lay claim to having been consistently hostile, for a decade or more, to Boris-idiot, the part-Jew, part-Levantine public entertainer who has now been posing as PM for over a year, and whose jokes are starting to fall very flat.

Likewise, I can also claim that I was able to discern at an early stage that “Boris” was not the strong leader many imagined, but as weak as weak could be, made yet weaker by his complete lack of both ideology and principle. The mob now starts to catch up with me.

G.K. Chesterton, that great cynic who was also a great reverer (to paraphrase Nietzsche) would be very sad to see what has happened to what he called the “good Christian inns” of old England.

The only heartening thing is that many are awakening to how deeply sinister all of this is. Incidentally, in Russian prisons, going back to the time of Stalin at least, prisoners being taken anywhere inside a prison are ordered to face the wall whenever another prisoner is brought along the same corridor.

Pay peanuts, get monkeys; pay more, get more monkeys…

There it is again: “holocaust”, “global warming”, “climate change”, “Coronavirus pandemic”, “Black Lives Matter” (etc)…”YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO QUESTION THE NARRATIVE”…

…and few will annoy the plebs by saying the truth: that most of the negative changes in the UK have come about because said plebs are more interested in whether the “England” team (mostly non-whites anyway) has won a football game, cricket match or rugby fixture somewhere on the other side of the world than they are about the shape and structure of their own society, or the composition of their own cities.

America has not seen anything like this since the days of the Hard Hats, the Yippies, the Black Panthers, and the Weather Underground. Maybe not even then.

The “Alt-Right”

A few years ago, one heard much about the “Alt-Right”. They were the steam powering the Trump campaign, they were rallying in the USA, they were active on social media in the UK. Now? As the Americans say, “crickets”. We just hear crickets, as I did at night as a child in Sydney. The noisy sound of silence.

Look at a few examples: Katie Hopkins is now off the msm, off Twitter, though still on YouTube, Facebook and her own website.

Tommy Robinson has decamped to Spain and is barred from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, though still has his own website and is trying to get back on YouTube.

“Prison Planet” Watson is on Twitter (though briefly barred) , YouTube (I think ditto), Facebook.

The other UK “alt-Right” faces, such as Sargon of Akkad (Carl Benjamin), have faded into obscurity.

In the UK, we see that those “alt-Right” faces who merely rant and rave, and have no real political influence, are still online. Paul Joseph Watson, aka “Prison Planet”, poses no threat to the System, despite his million Twitter followers. He has no party, though he did join UKIP (with Benjamin and others) in 2018. When he joined UKIP, that doomed party (which peaked in 2014) acquired, not a million members but…500! A timely reminder of the relationship between a Twitter “following” and a real one…

Oh, and in the real 2019 election, UKIP got less than 23,000 votes across the 44 seats it contested, an average of little more than 500 each. So much for “Prison Planet’s” real-world political influence.

Katie Hopkins had more real influence, which is why the System had her expelled from Twitter. The same is true of Tommy Robinson. He, like the others, is just “controlled opposition”, but his street army of ex-EDL bottlethrowers had at least the potential to become a real street army. It went too far, so the System closed him down.

Note that all the above are professedly pro-Jew, pro-Israel. That did not save them and will not save them, as soon as the game moves on. They are used; they are not, in the end, playing on their own behalf, even if they imagine that they are.

In the end, the “Alt-Right” and similar are just a distraction from real politics. Is there anything good about them from the social-national point of view? I suppose that they do, to a limited extent, partly set the agenda, but only to that limited extent.

Only organizations with a real world presence can survive a System onslaught, if and when it comes. Those making a living from donations etc online only will find no shelter when the wintry winds blow.

I do not regret the demise of the “Alt-Right”. It clears the decks for real action.

More tweets seen

I think that that tweet by tweeter “@FreejackFan” is not so far from my own attitude.

What is very noticeable is how many pseudo-socialists on Twitter are supporting (from the safety of their computers) the Extinction Rebellion mob. “An infantile disorder” indeed!

Need I say, at least to regular readers of this blog, how much I hate the “free Press”, more accurately termed either Lugenpresse or Judenpresse? The last two terms are more or less interchangeable.

Extinction Rebellion, like their idol, Greta Nut, have no solutions to the problems they highlight. They seem to believe that industry and modern life can be and should be shut down within about 5 years. They also seem to be saying that, if they can get 3.5% of the population to support them, that they can impose their ideas (such as they may be). Have they considered what might happen if the other 96.5% of the population start to dislike Extinction Rebellion intensely? Walls, squads. You get the picture.

Of course, Judenpresse scribblers such as Dan Hodges are hypocrites. Not one of them stood up for me in 2016 when I was wrongfully disbarred for having tweeted, in the end, five (5) completely true tweets about UK society. Not one stood up for free speech. Not Dan Hodges. Not Julia Hartley-Brewer (whom I think is part-Jew). Not the Jew hypocrite Oliver Kamm (in fact, he told the newspapers, and also tweeted, how much he approved of my disbarment).

As one of the tweeters I have cited in this blog tweeted, Extinction Rebellion is controlled opposition. Look at how the police give it pretty free rein, at least up to the point at which the public notices. Cressida Dick (again); Common Purpose (again).

Those supporting Extinction Rebellion’s activities today are ideologically pathetic, like the tweeters cited below, even though the msm does often print a pack of lies.

The Extinction Rebellion mob might be the catalyst, somewhere down the line, for a reaction that will be of a very different kind, and which may well roll its tanks over their “3.5%” (though in fact, in System elections, Extinction Rebellion candidates have never, as far as I know, even garnered 1% of the popular vote, or even a tenth of 1%.

Roger Hallam, the de facto leader of “XR”, stood in the last EU elections (as “Independent”). His vote was 0.004%, i.e. 4 votes out of every 10,000 voters! https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/16/the-extinction-rebellion-levellers/

A recent Daily Mail report: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8694867/Fury-Extinction-Rebellion-founder-says-MPs-bullet-heads.html

Incidentally, if anyone thinks that I am kindly disposed to the Daily Mail, google “Ian Millard barrister Daily Mail” and see what you find…

As far as I am concerned, if all the scribblers for the Mail and the rest of the Judenpresse lose their jobs, I shall be happy. That, however, does not mean that I support the “XR” idiots. Far from it.

Look at this (below)!

When Africans can establish and run any state, or even make the ones bequeathed to them by Europeans function properly, maybe then they can think about creating a “superstate”!

The tweet below is typical of the muddled thinking common among UK pseudo-socialists today:

The tweeter is of course right, or partly-right in talking about the System newspapers, but seems to think that the revolution that “XR” will never bring about would usher in a new age of rights and freedoms. Who will control the Press then? Assemblies of “comrades”? Ever heard of Kronstadt?

System police getting rough with British demonstrators at Dover, people sick of migration-invasion. Not one robocop went down on one knee. “Is it ‘cos we is not black?”

but look at the tweet below:

A pseudo-socialist “XR” supporter yet again. A Jew. “National Policy Officer, RMT union.” Pro-“BLM”, pro-facemask nonsense; and also pro-Israel ? (his Twitter profile does not say).

Yes, because the System needs the organs of propaganda in order to impose a quasi-dictatorship on the UK. The newspapers (together with radio, TV and schools) promote the “Coronavirus” fear propaganda, the “Black Lives Matter” propaganda, the “holocaust” propaganda etc.

Diary Blog, 15-16 July 2020

Well, at last some reality is coming down the tracks…and it could be brutal.

unemployment could peak at 13 per cent in the first quarter of 2021 – which would mean more than four million people on the dole queue.” [Daily Mail] https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8525539/Boris-Johnson-admits-jobs-lost-watchdog-warned-4m-unemployed.html

[above: UK GDP, by OBR]

If 4 million unemployed by 2021 is the figure these clowns are suggesting, then 8 million may not be inconceivable. This is or should be the great moment for a social-national breakthrough in 2022 or so. Yet there is no real social national party or movement in the UK.

I leave aside (as blogged about previously) the few clowns and “movements” that do exist at present in the UK.

Rudolf Steiner, I believe it was (it may have been Valentin Tomberg), who talked about the dilemma of people in these times in such terms as “I feel that I cannot do that which I must do…“. That is how I feel. The necessity is there and recognized, but the ways and means of doing what is necessary are not there…

I feel and recognize and know what is required, but have not the means (in terms of the old British song “…we’ve got the ships…we’ve got the men…we’ve got the money too!”).

[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1ZFzs7hL5g]

Perhaps the way will be made clear. At the age of 63, I do not have the luxury of waiting for years for the right moment to arrive. A new movement must come, one credible enough and powerful enough to do what it takes…

Cometh the hour, cometh the man…

Some tweets seen

Never give money to System “charities” such as this one, “Red Nose Day”, or Save the Children (where the chief people running it get up to £300,000 a year). One was Brendan Cox, the sex pest/rapist whose wife was Jo Cox, assassinated MP. They are, to a large extent, scams. Give money to animal charities such as the Brooke Hospital for Animals, or Cats Protection. Or give directly to needy people and animals via GoFundMe etc.https://uk.gofundme.com/f/life-changing-chronic-pain-surgery or similar.

Yes, we are incompetently ruled by clowns at present. Clowns without genuine legitimacy.

Chinese infiltration into UK

China has infiltrated Britain more successfully than it has other European countries, an expert warned last night.

Author Mareike Ohlberg, who has written about the underhand tactics of the country’s Communist Party, said attempts to groom leading figures in business and politics were at an advanced stage in the UK.”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8528025/Britain-Europes-No-1-target-infiltration-Chinas-Communist-Party-expert-warns.html

So what does Boris-idiot do? Gives 3-4 million Hong Kong Chinese (some of whom may be intelligence agents) the right to live in the UK! Even if many are anti-Peking dissidents, the fact is that (combined with the nearly half million already here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Chinese_immigration_to_the_United_Kingdom) the Chinese population of the UK might well be as many as 5 million by 2040. About 7% of the population. From the point of view of Peking, job done, strategically…

What “they” say

A Government report on extremism during the coronavirus pandemic has highlighted far-right activists’ calls to “infect Jews” as well as five different ways antisemites have blamed Jews for spreading the virus.” [Jewish News]

 “...individuals such as David Icke played “a significant role in spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories linked to Covid-19” [Jewish News]

Although Icke was successfully de-platformed from YouTube and Facebook, the scale and reach of his antisemitic conspiracy theories remains extremely concerning,” the report’s authors said.” [Jewish News]

https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/extremism-report-highlights-spike-in-far-right-antisemitism-during-pandemic/

Get that. A “government report” (not really) from the so-called “Commission for Countering Extremism” [“CCE”], says outright, in its bias, that David Icke was “successfully deplatformed” from YouTube and Facebook.

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Khan_(activist)

https://www.vogue.co.uk/article/sara-khan-we-will-inspire-muslim-group

This “Commission” is rather uninfluential, and was set up under Theresa May as Prime Minister. She of course was totally under the thumb of the Jewish lobby. Still, it is striking how biased it is, talking about how Icke was “successfully deplatformed” etc. No pretence of objectivity. In fact, its existence is merely one example of how governments waste money. I expect that the present government would like to bin this fake “Commission” and its useless “Lead Commissioner” (one Sara Khan), but cannot think of a plausible way to bin it and her.

Well, lookee here…

Not only have all (I think) the pop-up “Nightingale Hospitals” closed, mostly without ever having been used, but even the Coronavirus/Covid-19 testing centres are now closing for lack of use; yet this Government of idiots ploughs on with its fear propaganda, and enforcement of muzzles for people (facemasks) etc. Result? Destruction of what is left of the economy, particularly the retail sector.

One of the reasons why charities are such a “rotten borough” in the UK is because their funding (in some cases) comes only partly from members of the public, but also comes from government funds, or from the National Lottery (the “Good Causes Fund”).

In other words, the charity sector is pervaded by the sort of Common Purpose drones you see on Twitter. This is why you get quite mediocre people (eg at Save the Children) heading charities and being paid £300,000 a year. This is also why you get the sex scandals, as with sex pest/rapist Brendan Cox etc. Because the charities have guaranteed income provided via people embedded in government, quangos etc, which people belong to the same cabals.

Strange. I must have missed that time when Piers Morgan spoke up for me, when I was disbarred at the instigation of a pack of Jews: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/, or the time when effectively the same pack of Jews made a malicious complaint against me to Essex Police: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

Oh…in fact there never was such a time when Piers Morgan defended my freedom to express myself on political, social, religious, historical and cultural matters. Piers Morgan never did defend my rights.

I also never saw Morgan defend the rights of others known to me, people such as Alison Chabloz, prosecuted for posting online some of her satirical songs, such as (((Survivors))): https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/07/07/free-speech-alison-chabloz-wins-a-victory-but-still-faces-attack/

Still, I suppose that half a pint is better than no pint…

[above: the British bulldog, muzzled (they emasculated him first…)]

The muzzling of the population is, of course, made for the Twitterati, most of them. All the “antifascists”, “socialists” (pseudo-socialists), all the “anti-racists” and communitarians and “slacktivists”. They love the fact that they can mask-up and virtue-signal all the way to the office (that most are not attending).

Good grief…Pity, one or two rounds would have done it.

The usual Twitter “antifascist”/multikulti mob are getting it wrong, yet again. They say that the Begum creature is “British”. Technically perhaps, in terms of birthplace, passport etc, but racially and culturally she is not in any real sense “British”; neither are many millions of others.

The solution to “Islamist” terror is not to have incubating populations here in the UK. See https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/02/12/terrorism-and-reason/

Look (below) at this idiot!”If you were born in China, you would be Chinese” says the idiot…One James Shaw, aka “Planet Zombie”. All too typical, at least on Twitter.

Might be interesting.

Daily Telegraph police state propaganda

Good to see people fighting back. We need a mass “no facemask day” protest. I’m in…

I agree with this one too! (@plutoslovechild, below)

Below, a shop standing up against facemask tyranny:

The “Covid-19″/Coronavirus scare: much of this is actually a ZOG/NWO scam. Not all. Much.

It does highlight the poverty of thought in and around government that the idiots actually seem to believe that forcing everyone to be muzzled or masked will increase footfall in shops! The reasoning seems to be that shoppers will feel more confident and safe. No. It’s like when you are at, say, Heathrow, and smug, stupid-looking police are stalking around with their Heckler & Koch MP5 and other weapons. Does that make you feel “safer”? No. It makes you think “what might happen in the event of a terrorist incident?

In other words, the armed police at airports, in reality, do the opposite of reassuring most members of the public. Is that ignorance on the part of the public? Maybe not; I mean, if terrorists suddenly launched an attack, what would the heavily-armed police do? Open fire in some place as crowded as were (before “the virus” almost wiped out civil aviation) the Heathrow or Gatwick passenger terminals? I sincerely hope not!

Reverting to the facemask curse, my guess is that most people will be shopping online for things. The shops and department stores are going to be empty or almost empty because of the facemask nonsense, because of the residual thought that they just might pick up “the virus” (unlikely though that is) and finally because, soon at least, most people are going to have a great deal less money to spend in shops.

Flybe

Sad news, though not unexpected. I used to use Flybe sometimes, in those long ago days before 2010 when I actually used to go places…I have flown Flybe (or partner airlines) out of its Exeter base, as well as to/from Southampton, Brest (Finistere), Newcastle, Norwich, Doncaster, Manchester, as well as a few other destinations. Quite good. Hard to see how Southampton and Exeter airports will be able to continue if, as reported, Flybe provided up to 95% of the throughput (BBC says 90% for Southampton and 80% for Exeter). Journeys such as Exeter to Newcastle or Norwich are hell by car, even at 100+ mph. I think that the Newcastle route, taken a couple of times, took about 40 mins actually in the air. Pretty good. Car? About 5-6 hours, depending on M5/M6 (etc) traffic.

Bad news for those employed too, both at Flybe and in other connected or supplying organizations. It may be, acc. to reports, that BA, or the appalling (one hears) Ryanair, may take over some routes, so all may not be lost.

Coronavirus

So far, the public “panic” is muted in the UK. There is a groundswell of unease, though. Over the past 2 days, I have noticed that the (only) local supermarket, a Waitrose, has run out of (nearly £20 a jar) Mauka honey, the cheaper and larger-pack loo paper, antiseptic handwash etc. Also, far fewer than usual number of shoppers.

The response of Boris-idiot’s government to the “Corvid-19” situation has been feeble. As I noted here a few days ago, my Australian niece (early 20s) returned a week or so ago from the (in the event, largely-cancelled) Venice carnival to a Heathrow Airport sans any checks or questioning. When I visited Macau from Hong Kong in 2006, the bird flu was around and my almost deserted return hydrofoil docked in Hong Kong to a reception of white-garbed and masked medical personnel, who pointed a kind of thermometer gun as I and the few other passengers passed by. Notices warned that anyone could be taken into quarantine if their body temperature was “too high”. Alarming.

I have no confidence in the ability of the NHS to handle a large-scale epidemic. Its administration is not very efficient, the UK has fewer beds per 1,000 population than any other “advanced” state —far fewer than France, for example— and its staff and facilities have been hit by years of “austerity” cuts and government mismanagement.

For no particular reason, The Black Bear:

 

Despite being part-Scottish somewhere in the mists of time (from my surname, which is believed to be Franco-Scottish in origin…a former girlfriend once visited a chateau in Normandy owned since it was built, hundreds of years ago, by a Templar-connected family called de Millard), I have never actually visited Scotland. Maybe some day.

Badgers

At last some good news for our lovely badgers:

If any portion of this is because of the influence of Boris-idiot’s fiancee, then I salute her.

For far too long, the organized farming lobby has had a disproportionate influence in Westminster. The only industry to be still subsidized to the hilt. Ecologically, generally very negative. I must blog about all that again soon.

Judicial leniency

The woman in the report below should have been imprisoned. Too many use the fact that they have popped out a couple of children as a reason for not getting a well-merited prison term, even in cases (as here) where the woman in question was cruel as well as neglectful.

Coronavirus and Boris-idiot

It becomes increasingly clear that (as I realized when the London riots broke out, years ago) Boris Johnson is no good in a crisis. In any crisis.

Why was the younger one “spared jail”? An airline captain on duty attacked, kicked, struck, blood drawn…What do you have to do in England today to be given a custodial sentence? (say something about the behaviour of Jews, probably…). As for the District Judge finding that the older woman was acting in “self-defence”, that is just a joke. Idiotic woman (I mean the “judge”). Finally, why are these semi-savages in the UK or any part of Europe?

Save the Children and Brendan Cox

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/save-the-children-sex-sexual-harassment-justin-forsyth-brendan-cox-a9376336.html

When I still had a Twitter account, I did a series of tweets re. “Save the Children” and also the fake charity called the “Jo Cox Foundation”. The former paid and still pays its top few people hundreds of thousands of pounds per year. No-oneexpects the heads of such a charity to work for nothing, but the largesse extended to the few at the top has a degree of obscenity about it, especially when contrasted with the TV ads showing starving children etc.

The sex pest and near (if not actual) rapist, Brendan Cox (husband of the assassinated virtue-signalling MP, Jo Cox), was paid, certainly by average standards, a huge salary and very generous expenses to be one of the main executives. That despite a very mediocre academic and work background.

He was finally brought down by sexual assault claims which, eventually, had to be admitted. I doubt whether his basic attitude has changed much. He now still is involved in some way with the Jo Cox “charity”.

I discovered, about 3 years ago, that the Jo Cox “charity” had officially-published aims and purposes which were ludicrously wide— they could mean almost anything, and —more significantly– purported to allow the “charity” to do anything, pretty much. I also discovered that the “Jo Cox Foundation” had never filed accounts. It has now, and its documents have been amended to fit within UK charities legislation:

https://beta.charitycommission.gov.uk/charity-details/?regid=1170836&subid=0

The disgraced expenses cheat and former Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, is now “Chair” of “Jo Cox Foundation”, which apparently spent about £400,000 last year, despite having an income from donations and “trading” of only £300,000. I should get an accountant like that myself!

I have to say that the whole set-up seems very dodgy to me, even now. I do not think that the whole Jo Cox/Brendan Cox story has been uncovered; it certainly has not been told.
