Diary Blog, 19 December 2020, including thoughts about social-national politics

Direction of travel of the social-national movement

The first thing to recognize is that there is no “social-national movement” in the UK. The modest successes of, mainly, the BNP, 1997-2010, could be described as interesting rather than enthralling; the BNP’s complete collapse in 2010, though ongoing to 2015, was neither enthralling nor even interesting.

I do not include the “controlled opposition” of Farage, his UKIP and Brexit Party vehicles etc (which are scarcely “national”, let alone “social national”); neither do I include the “alt-Right” wastes of space: “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad” (Carl Benjamin), “Count Dankula” and others. Not worth bothering about. Most of them are vocally pro-Jew and pro-Israel too (either to buy credit from them and so avoid damage to their apparently lucrative online activities, or out of actual adherence).

Apart from the above, what we have now amounts to little more than various individuals posting tweets, youtube vlogs etc online.

Thus the “antifascist” (mostly Jew or Jew-controlled) element can easily “take down” the aforesaid wastes of space, and (connected) types such as Katie Hopkins, and even Tommy Robinson (the only one of them with anything like a real offline following), simply by “taking down” their Internet service. These people (except, arguably, Tommy Robinson) are dependent entirely on their websites, blogs, vlogs and including online sales, for income.

Offline? Patriotic Alternative are slightly interesting, and I think that they are at least somewhat on the right track. The other little “movements” and “parties” are a waste of time and space. I have blogged about them previously here and there. If you use the search bar on this blog, you will find my comments about them made from time to time.

Anything or anyone else? Well, ex-BNP leader Nick Griffin is or seems to be partly on the right sort of track too, though I was forced to write critically recently about his support for Jayda Fransen and her “British Freedom Party”. His support for that frankly puzzles me.

There is space and indeed a necessity for a credible movement, which would include a political party, but one does not as yet exist. That movement would also include a gradual relocation by many to a few parts of the UK where forces can be concentrated. My views on this have frequently been blogged, and can be found below.

I have listened to the views of those who say that concentrating forces in such a way is a strategy of “running away”, and that we should “stand and fight”. Well, I would answer that by saying that

  1. There is a difference between strategic withdrawal and “running away”;
  2. One cannot “stand and fight” with no weapons and, even more importantly, no army!;
  3. The English cities are becoming majority non-white; yes only gradually, but surely all the same; by 2040, maybe even 2030, the UK cities and large towns will be basically non-white, and already show clear signs of that;
  4. Such a concentration of forces does not preclude activity in the main urban areas.

The next step must be to establish a tightly-controlled political movement, even if small. However, it must be credible and solid right from the start.

Can that be true?! Could be a game-changer if it is. Imagine if Blair actually took over Labour again…he is completely controlled NWO/ZOG. Just in time for the next crucial year in the 33-year cycle— 2022.

Britain is riddled with enemies and traitors; they have to be rooted out.

Boris-idiot speaks…

Just listening to the clown presently posing as Prime Minister. Describing the latest illegitimate restrictions on the population. So some people, in some areas, are now to be actually prohibited from travelling overseas “except for work”. So that gives the wealthy business or parasite element a good get-out (as in “I have a business meeting in Marbella or Eilat, and will be using a private charter aircraft…).

In addition, Christmas and the New Year are now cancelled. “The Great Reset”…

From where does the (alleged) “new variant” of “the virus” come? China? Some secret laboratory? Was the existing virus strain designed that way, i.e. to mutate? Or is it a purely natural mutation, like strains of influenza? We do not know.

The bottom line is that the UK economy is going to tank. Still, “always look on the bright side of life”, and this could be the impetus, in 2021, for the formation of a real, and credible, social-national party.

Damn. For the first time since I started looking at these quiz questions on Saturday, John Rentoul beat me, having apparently scored 5/10, whereas I scored only 3/10 this week (though had I thought for a moment I would have scored a few extra…); my worst-ever score…I had no idea at all about questions 2, 6, and 7.

That alone will certainly not be enough, though it is good an sich.

Still think that those of us who have been talking about an upcoming private-public UK police state are wrong?

As I predicted some time ago, Sturgeon is using “the virus” to do “pretend-Independence” things. Closing borders unilaterally is the prerogative of a state, not a mere part of a state.

So? If the “Conservative” label fails and is voted out, the “Labour” label, equally (((controlled))) gets voted in, and very little changes…

Are we supposed to believe that that clown, “Boris”, is actually “in charge”? He is merely the puppet of powerful hidden forces.

Conspiracy theory

The very latest conspiracy theory— just made up…by me. The mutating virus was planned in advance (and/or new mutations are deliberately released) with aim of reducing world population drastically. Maybe newer and newer mutations will “emerge”, each succeeding one more lethal than those before it (the first one was/is not so lethal, having —supposedly— killed 1 in 1,400 people in the UK).

Well, the above is just a speculation and may not be so…

Diary Blog, 3 November 2020, including thoughts about the party-political consequences of Government-Opposition convergence

Party-political aspects of the “lockdown”/shutdown nonsense

I commented a while ago, and also not long after the unmerited Conservative Party “victory” in 2019, that in the absence of a viable official Opposition, any real opposition to the Boris-idiot government would come from within the Conservative Party itself. That has turned out to be the case. In the vote (scheduled for tomorrow) to approve the latest crazy “lockdown”, 80+ Conservative Party MPs are set to vote against, with others abstaining. The Labour Party, though, has stepped into the breach to support the Government!

In fact, Labour’s only “opposition” is to say, “Boris should have done it earlier, harsher, and better-run“… That’s not much of an Opposition…

In the absence of a decent Government and a decent Opposition, we see not only the rebellion of many Conservative Party MPs, but a vacuum opening up. That applies not only to policy and action around “the virus”, but also in other areas: immigration, migration-invasion, illegal immigrants motoring over from France with little to stop them; other areas too: work and pay, pensions.

The Government and Opposition are just too cosy now, both headed by members of Friends of Israel organizations.

The egregious Nigel Farage has, like the businessman he is, “spotted a gap in the [political] market” and, despite having stabbed his own followers in the back twice before (with UKIP and then Brexit Party), now has applied (yes, in our “free” country, you now have to “apply”…) to form a new party, Reform Party.

I wonder how many angry and/or discontented people will grasp at the latest Farage straw? Controlled opposition.

There is an opportunity for a real social-national movement and party (both movement and, within that, party) in the UK, but a suitable vehicle does not as yet exist, despite valiant attempts now, notably by Patriotic Alternative under Mark Collett and Laura Towler.

The fact that major banks have told both Collett and Laura Towler that their accounts are to be closed, I take as a hopeful sign for them. It indicates that “PA” is starting to resonate.

The withdrawal of banking services —for socio-political reasons— may not be quite the “no man might buy or sell” unless having the mark and number of the Beast (in the Revelation of St. John), but it does seem to be a step or two down that road.

The storm clouds are gathering.

“Lockdown”, the Coronavirus situation generally, mishandled Brexit, migration-invasion, “black lives matter” vandalism and disorder, people pushing back against the Jewish lobby, the economy sliding fast.

The ravens of Odin sense a coming battle and a coming victory.

I agree with much of the letter, though.

I am glad to see that almost everyone has now come round to my view, expressed for years, that far from being a strong leader, “Boris” is as weak as weak could be in almost all ways.

Boris-idiot

Looks like the rest of the country is catching up fast with long-time critics of the part-Jew public entertainer presently posing as Prime Minister.

I have been anti-“Boris” for well over a decade.

When I saw a brief part of Prime Minister’s Questions last Wednesday, “Boris” looked not so much crushed as flattened. That was not entirely because of the onslaught on him by actually rather unimpressive Angela Rayner. I think though (and last PMQs thought for the first time) that “Boris” really is, in the time-honoured phrase, now “considering his position” as Prime Minister.

As I blogged a day or two ago, “Boris” enjoyed being PM so long as it amounted to him posing as “World King” (his stated ambition when he was 8 years old). Now, he has understood that, especially in fractious times, being Prime Minister involves the storied “blood, sweat and tears”. Difficult choices and decisions. Trenchant criticism from many, including political “friends”. Nowhere to hide, most of the time. A British Prime Minister may not have to be on display as he gets dressed, unlike the Bourbon kings at their morning “levee”, but apart from that is on display most of the time.

You might think that an exhibitionist such as “Boris” would enjoy the attention which is an inevitable part of being a Prime Minister of the UK, but I apprehend that “Boris” does not like being put on the spot or questioned. Who does, actually?

Theresa May hid away as much as possible, leading to her ludicrous election speeches in 2017 to selected bunches of people in remote aircraft hangars. “Boris” has tried to hide in a fridge, in a tent, at Chequers, and elsewhere too, but his very rank now seeks him out. You cannot “work from home” as a Prime Minister. There is no home, really.

In the end, people want to be Prime Minister for one or more of several reasons: vanity; to accomplish particular things; out of a sense of duty; in order to be at the peak of executive power; malice, meaning to deny the position to others.

Boris-idiot has no ideology, no real ideas, no sense of duty, and has really only the vanity of having attained to the position, and also the sense of power, of being able to hire and fire etc.

Boris has no ideology, that much is obvious. He pretended at one time to have a kind of libertarian, “free-market”, 1960s Hong Kong-meets-Milton Friedman ideology at first; a “can-do” cartoon American self-help view of the world which indicated a total lack of self-awareness. After all, where would “Boris” be without the education (and for “education”, read “connections”) bestowed by Eton and Oxford and bought by his pushy careerist father, and family generally? Every job “Boris” messed up just led to another and another. “Boris” has never had to struggle, because family and other connections always helped him.

Any ideological sense has now left “Boris”. The one-time cartoon “libertarian” now tries to force the British people to wear facemask muzzles, to keep x-feet away from each other, to have no more than 6 people together at any one time, even at family gatherings etc. When was the last time there were such killjoy “laws” (which in fact may not even be —valid— laws)? The Second World War? The Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell?

As for free-marketism, the Boris-idiot government has prevented many businesses from operating profitably or at all, while at the same time propping up those and other businesses with public money: airlines, train companies, bus companies, restaurants, pubs, hotel chains. You name it.

All that in the name of suppressing a virus which peaked in the UK in early April of 2020, and which has been killing fewer and fewer people ever since. Yesterday, the latest figures showed about 4,000 people “testing positive” for “the virus”, most of whom showed no symptoms at all! Meanwhile, about 20 or so people died “from” (with) that virus (supposedly). 1 person dying for every 2,000 known to have the virus.

This is madness. “Boris” made the wrong call right from the start, by “locking down” (shutting down” much of the economy and almost all of our society, even churches and the House of Commons.

“Boris” was misled by the risibly misnamed “SAGE” committee (I prefer “DUMB”— Department Under Matt and Boris).

I do not blame “Boris” for making the wrong call, but I do blame him for not admitting his mistake in due time, for not stopping the “lockdown” after the first few weeks, and for not reining back the excesses of the toytown police across the country. A police state is bad, but a silly toytown police state is in some respects worse and certainly leads to a disrespect for all the institutions of society.

What are the ideas of Prime Minister “Boris”? Schoolboy fantasies of bridges across the Irish Sea, a bridge across the English Channel, of tunnels under the sea, of garden bridges across the Thames, cable-cars across the Thames (the only one that was built, but which is of little use); again, of sci-fi artificial islands, on which were to be new airports and high-tech industries. All fantasy, not thought through.

I think that I prefer the fantasies of Ludwig II of Bavaria, who at least realized some of his, leaving fairytale castles in the Alps for the wonderment of latter-day tourists. Neuschwanstein, Linderhof etc at least were built. “Boris Island”, the “Thames Garden Bridge”, the Scotland-Ireland tunnel etc, will never be.

Looking at Boris-idiot now, there is little beyond a deflated balloon. I think that, in his heart (such as it is), “Boris” knows that he is no good at being Prime Minister, and, in that heart, wants out. However, he will not want to resign in disgrace. That means that he has to keep on pretending that the “lockdown” was necessary, that the “local” lockdowns (which now cover or soon will cover much of the country) are necessary, that the fairly recent facemask-muzzling of shoppers (but not pubgoers or office workers) was and remains necessary.

“Boris” is like someone, an employee, who has bet with the money of the company and cannot leave without exposing his dishonesty and incompetence. A political Nick Leeson.

We see now that a raft of stories emerge about how “Boris” cannot live comfortably with his latest quasi-wife and latest child on the poor salary of a Prime Minister, about how crowded are their living conditions at Downing Street, how they actually have to pay something for their food and drink (!), and how they cannot even use Chequers for entertaining their friends without actually having to pay for said friends!

Can you believe it?! The bastard thinks that he cannot live easily on his salary (nearly £160,000 gross), in addition to which salary he has a free flat at Downing Street, a free country house and park at Chequers, free chauffeured transport etc.

“Boris” thinks that the public funds should pay for food and drink for himself and the “ho”, and for their friends!

This seems like a testing-the-waters for a “resigning for personal reasons”, which might include “health reasons”, i.e. that the idiot’s health has been so damaged by “the virus” that he has to step down as Prime Minister. He can then put forward a narrative such as “wounded in action” or equivalent.

No doubt he would not step down as MP, thus enabling him to keep getting the MP salary and expenses, and to scribble his cretinous rantings in the popular Press (for which he was getting £250,000+ p.a., incredibly). No doubt a book or two would also be scribbled. “My Life” and/or “My Time As Prime Minister“, “Me and the Virus” (etc).

For the first time, I thought over the past week that “Boris” might be gone within a year or so. Who then will be (“unelected”) PM, just as “Boris” was when he took over from Theresa May? Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak, he of the disastrous furlough payments? Somehow I doubt it. Mass unemployment, probably just around the corner, will put paid to him, probably. Another Indian, Priti Patel? Good grief! I hope not. As dense as Channel fog. What about little Matt Hancock? This is absurd now…but that is the political system we are in…

The less amenable and probably more dangerous ones are being released, incredibly. Further, guess who argued for those “good” prisoners, mostly blacks, to be kept longer in prison so that they could slave for the State? None other than Kamala Harris, the Democratic Party candidate for Vice-President!

I was listening to some System propaganda yesterday on the radio. Unsure now whether it was BBC World Service (probably was) or Radio 4. The only other radio station I listen to regularly is BBC Radio 3. Anyway, that broadcast said that deaths “from” (with) “the virus” now top a million worldwide. Well even taking the million figure as accurate, that is one million out of a world population of nearly 8 BILLION, i.e. 8 thousand million. One person dead from or with “the virus” for every 8 thousand people living on Earth now (in rough figures).

There is no need for “lockdowns” (which huge harm both socially and economically), let alone facemasks.

Diary Blog, 9 August 2020, including thoughts about BBC World Service, Claire Fox and Nigel Farage

An annoying early-morning start to the day, waking up not far past the middle of the night to typical rubbish on the BBC World Service. A programme called United Zingdom, in which what sounded like two Welsh women (one certainly was, being one Lisa Angharad) got together to trash England, the UK, and the British people. One of them apparently has a Singapore passport as well as a British one.

Everything, it seems, is the fault of “the British” (English). They, the English, are basically nasty, “racist” etc. They should not want their own country, language, customs, population. Now Wales, Wales is different! It (apparently) should have its own language etc. The bias and sheer untruth in that little broadcast was incredible.

The woman with the Singapore passport was asked about whether she would prefer to live there and seemed to affirm, though she said that “but they have anti-gay laws there…”, which apparently was a drawback. She then added “…but the British brought those to Singapore“. Ah, so once more the British (and failing that, no doubt any other white Northern Europeans) were to blame! I should have guessed. The other woman then chimed in with “ah, the British again“. Why are we paying (forced to pay) the BBC so that it can pay bitches like that to spout anti-British propaganda?

They should have added that, until the British arrived on the island of Singapore, there was nothing there at all, and had not been for at least 200 years: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Singapore

Another couple of deliberate inaccuracies: we were told that the Welsh language is vibrant and becoming more spoken, and that there is “a huge upsurge” in Welsh nationalism.

Language: I myself know from experience in the 1980s that Welsh is naturally a first language in some areas, in West Wales especially. It seems however that less than a quarter of the Welsh population as a whole speak Welsh to any useable standard: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_language

Welsh nationalism: Plaid Cymru is only nominally “nationalist” anyway, willing to have people in Wales “whatever their race, nationality, gender, colour, creed [etc]” [Plaid Cymru platform].

Even leaving aside the above, the Plaid electoral performance has been poor: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plaid_Cymru#Electoral_performance

Plaid Cymru controls only one local council in Wales (out of dozens). It also has 4 out of 40 Westminster MPs (a figure unchanged or not much changed since the 1970s), and in the last (and final) EU elections had elected 1 MEP out of 4 (their best result was in 1999, 2 out of 5).

Conclusion: there is no upsurge of Welsh “nationalism”, let alone a huge one.

The trashing of the World Service has been one of the saddest things over the past 30 years. It was once interesting, lively, truthful, stimulating. 1970s and 1980s. Now, it cannot even seem to be able to tell the time clearly! The World Service seemed to go into a kind of spiral of decline in the 1990s. A Jewish woman whose name I forget was on constantly, and —quelle surprise— obsessed on air about “holocaust” and “Nazis” almost nonstop.

The decline of BBC World Service continued, reaching (I hope) the bottom round about 2010. In the past year or two, there has been a slight improvement, but only slight. There are still only a few worthwhile programmes, the best being The Forum, especially when presented by Bridget Kendall: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3cszjvc https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridget_Kendall.

Martin Bell, the famous broadcaster, journalist and one-term MP [Independent, Tatton] made the point several times that, in dangerous parts of the world (Iraq, Bosnia etc) people know the BBC World Service, yet the World Service is funded on a shoestring compared to rather useless projects such as the British Council [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Council]

I really value the BBC World Service, which is precisely why I despise what it has largely become. As Nietzsche wrote: “the great despisers are also the great reverers” [Friedrich Nietzsche, Also Sprach Zarathustra].

Here we see science popularizer Professor Brian Cox putting forward, yet again, his tendentious political views. The sort of person all too common in the UK, meaning someone who wants the country to become even more of a multikulti dustbin. After all, “I’m all right, Jack”.

There are two types of scientist: the ones doing serious research and perhaps making real and even great discoveries or leaps forward; then there are the others, who are basically popular in the mass media, write books popular with the public, are on TV frequently, rack up official honours (and plenty of money) for all that. Nuff said…

Cox is a good example of the “clever person” (not infrequently someone of scientific background) who has come to think that he is a good deal more clever than he is and who, at least when out of his specialist area or areas, is rather silly.

Incidentally, he presumably meant to say “arrant nonsense“, not “errant nonsense“…

There are huge numbers of bien-pensant idiots in the UK, who love to think of themselves as kind, compassionate, generous etc, as they virtue-signal on Twitter and elsewhere. The famous or infamous ones, such as Yvette Cooper, Lily Allen, Gary Lineker etc are only the tip of the iceberg. Below their capital, income, and public-recognition levels, there are thousands, perhaps even millions of others.

I hesitate to say that none of those people, the “refugees welcome” dimwits, would ever accommodate migrant-invaders in their own homes. A few of the brainwashed and obscure ones might, just as, out of tens of millions, a very few people swim the Channel (to France, usually!), or learn to speak 10 languages fluently.

I met a man once who worked near Elephant and Castle, London, and who could speak, not 10 languages, admittedly, but certainly 8 languages fluently, and those languages did include some of the near-“impossible” ones, such as Finnish and Hungarian.

Such people are rare. They are not the general run. Most of the “refugees welcome” dimwits want the State and/or other people (which is all the State is, in the end) to house and feed those migrant-invaders, and to educate the children of the invaders. The dimwits prioritize the invaders over English/British people such as the ex-soldiers sleeping on the streets, or the middle-aged Brits struggling to survive after the (basically Jewish-influenced) “austerity” of 2010-2020 and the socio-economic upheavals which have occurred and those which lie ahead.

House of Lords, Brexit Party and Nigel Farage

I thought that Richard Tice, 2-i-c of Brexit Party, had been nominated for a peerage; apparently not. Claire Fox has, though. What a strange nomination that is.

I first saw Claire Fox [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claire_Fox] on TV about a decade ago. I think that it was on Newsnight. Or Daily Politics. I think the former. She was supposedly the head of something called The Institute of Ideas. I was curious enough to look it up via Internet. There was not much to see. The “Institute” seemed to consist mainly of Claire Fox, and (I found out after a while) seemed to be funded mainly by a City of London hedge fund speculator Jew, whose name I cannot at present recall.

As for Claire Fox herself, as seen on TV, she was not at all impressive, not convincing; there was something fake about her and her “Institute”, even before I started to look into it.

I found the “Institute of Ideas” to be little more than a facade; indeed, little more than a catchy name. I was unable to discover much about it. The whole thing seemed opaque, insubstantial. One could not grasp hold of it.

I see now that others, such as the journalist and TV news presenter, Jon Snow, had similar problems:

” The news broadcaster Jon Snow, according to a Guardian article, withdrew from an event to which he had been invited by the Royal Society of Arts after realising the IoI’s involvement. Snow felt there was a lack of transparency. ‘I didn’t have a clear idea of who they were,’ he said.  This lack of transparency affects almost every aspect of IoI events, as the article notes:  ‘From the platforms and the floor, the LM [Living Marxism] line is assiduously promoted by the magazine’s supporters and contributors – often without clear attribution of their affiliations.’ ” [Lobbywatch] http://www.lobbywatch.org/profile1.asp?PrId=142]

It seems that the “Institute” was founded in 2000 by Fiona Fox, sister of Claire Fox, and other undisclosed persons. Fiona Fox also heads the Science Media Centre [http://www.lobbywatch.org/profile1.asp?PrId=121], which is embedded within the very Establishment scientific body, the Royal Institution [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Institution]. Another sister, Gemma Fox, heads an EU-funded IT organization in Wales.

As noted in the Lobbywatch piece, above, the so-called “Institute” was founded by people connected with the tiny, obscure, and superficially uninfluential Revolutionary Communist Party [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolutionary_Communist_Party_(UK,_1978)] and its connected magazine, Living Marxism or LM [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_Marxism], which formally shut down in 2000 but in reality has now been rebranded as the online magazine Spiked [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiked_(magazine)], which has a fairly high profile on Twitter etc: https://twitter.com/spikedonline

Another fairly high-profile person connected with the above is Frank Furedi, a person of Hungarian origins, frequently on BBC radio [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Furedi], whose wife is the head of the UK’s largest abortion “advice” organization.

The “Institute of Ideas” has now retitled itself “The Academy of Ideas” [https://www.facebook.com/instofideas/]. Oddly, on Wikipedia, neither “Institute of Ideas” or “Academy of Ideas” have pages, though the “Academy” has its own website: https://www.academyofideas.org.uk/.

Some of the tweets of Spiked can command my support, many cannot, such as this pitiful article:

Taking just the main contention of that article, the Anglo-American atom-bomb project aka the Manhattan Project or Tube Alloys [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan_Project; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tube_Alloys] had as its primary aim the destruction of Germany and the German people, not Japan. Most of the scientists of importance were Jews. They hated Germany and National Socialism. Some were also Communists. Germany was only saved from atomic destruction by its unconditional surrender before the bomb was ready to be used.

The above exploration may or may not be interesting, but what interests me now and particularly is why did Boris-idiot (Boris Johnson) nominate Claire Fox for a peerage? Why?

Claire Fox has no real academic pedigree. Even in the 1980s (i.e. before the start of the present “award inflation”, by which almost all students get a supposed “First” or “Upper Second” degree), a 2:2 in English and American Literature scarcely cut it in the academic world! She was a mental health social worker for some years after graduation, then for 10 years a lecturer in English Literature at a couple of technical colleges in South Essex and in South Hertfordshire.

I think that we can be sure that Claire Fox’s peerage nomination was not for “services to education”!

We have already seen that, as a “think tank”, the “Institute of Ideas” scarcely existed. Even as an active lobby group, its activities do not seem to have had much impact. Claire Fox, despite a few appearances on TV, including the —now very outdated— Question Time, was not until recently (until 2019) a very publicly-known person; neither has she been involved with anything normally likely to attract an honour of any sort, let alone a peerage.

What about Claire Fox’s political life? Well, membership of the Revolutionary Communist Party or anything like it has never been an easy route to the House of Lords! Anyone with similar views who ended up with a peerage at least had to pretend to be “Labour”! I cannot think of many, even so. A few Jews, now long gone, perhaps. As for a “revolutionary communist”, even one now sort-of apostate, being ennobled “on the recommendation of” a Conservative Party Prime Minister would have been unthinkable, until now.

Claire Fox joined Nigel Farage’s pop-up “Brexit Party” in 2019, was selected (along with at least two other “former” Revolutionary Communist Party members) as a candidate for the European elections. She was elected, and was an MEP for about a year, until the UK nominally left the EU. One year…

It goes beyond that. Claire Fox has said things that many consider unforgiveable, such as, and in particular, her championing of IRA bombing in 1993, specifically the killing of a child.

Looking at it all, it seems inconceivable that, even a few years ago, or today, such a person could ever be nominated for a peerage, to become one of the UK’s upper house legislators, even bearing in mind the weird collection now in the Lords. Yet there she sits (soon). In fact, her previous (never reversed) support for the IRA has not stood in her way. Even the Sun “newspaper” has her on its YouTube channel!

Not that I disagree with everything she says. I agree with some of what she is saying in the above clip. [Having now —several hours later— seen all of the interview, I concede that I agree with a good deal of what she says in it].

So why was she given (nomination for) a peerage? I cannot entirely work it out, but it is obviously connected with her work for Brexit, and even more so with the standing down of most Brexit Party candidates while the election campaign was ongoing. A stunning act of betrayal by con-man Nigel Farage. He shot his own party in the neck. Or the back. Moreover, he stood down only candidates facing previously-incumbent or new Conservative Party candidates! Including Conservative Party candidates who were Remain supporters!

Nigel Farage ensured that the Conservative Party won the 2019 General Election. It might have won anyway, but might not have done, and certainly would not have achieved a Commons majority of 80 (or any majority).

If I am correct, and Claire Fox has been somehow rewarded for supporting Farage in his betrayal, why has Farage himself (or his 2-i-c, Tice), not been nominated for the House of Lords? There could be a number of reasons, such as (speculating) that Farage has been paid, as his reward, millions of pounds into an offshore secret account. Why not? I have no evidence that that is the case, but it seems not unlikely to me. £10 million? £20 million? Cheap at the price, when you get the UK in exchange…

Anyway, “the night is young”. Farage still might get a peerage from Boris-idiot; next year, or the year after. Tice too, maybe. Maybe Claire Fox getting one now is in the nature of a “statement of intent” or down-payment to Farage. Maybe giving Farage a peerage right now would make the corruption and betrayal just too obvious. Next year? 2022? Maybe.

The present politics of the System is more than sleazy. It has to be exterminated.

Patriots Day

Just watched an American film, Patriots Day, about the ghastly bombing of the Boston Marathon, and the hunt for the perpetrators. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patriots_Day_(film)

I think that the film is one of the best of its type that I have seen. Quite long on TV (with ad breaks, 2 hrs 35 mins), it nonetheless kept the attention throughout (and that is not always the case with me: in younger days, as a 20-something, I was notorious among my friends for getting bored and walking out of cinemas after 20 or 30 minutes of the start of a film).

Assuming that the film was accurate (and I do remember some of the details of that terrible event of 2013), the wife of the main terrorist —she was a Muslim convert, he a Chechen resident in the Boston area— was lucky that it was considered that there was insufficient evidence to charge her.

As for the surviving terrorist, he only last week won his appeal against the death sentence he eventually received. He will spend the rest of his life in some soulless American prison. He was only 19 when he helped his brother to bomb the marathon event.

Such people cannot be described as “urban guerrillas”, if that term is still in use. They are purely terrorists, actuated by malice rather than anything approaching real ideology.

Some may say, “but look what American forces do, bombing civilians“, and that is true, but even from the point of view of hearts and minds, and leaving aside ethics, to bomb a civilian event like the Boston Marathon has no point and indeed is counter-productive: the Islamists gain nothing but the enmity of a superpower and its people.

A film I can thoroughly recommend.

Update, 16 August 2020

Labour Is The Party of…? Labour Is The Party For…?

The most recent opinion polls [see below] must make sobering reading for Keir Starmer and his colleagues.

Now, we all know how flawed opinion polls are, how they only broadly reflect public opinion, how they cannot be exactly aligned to the likely outcome of British general elections because of the First Past The Post [FPTP] elctoral system and because of the way that boundaries are drawn:

c64bh5xw0aiwygy

Yes, all that is true. However, no party supported by 1% of the electorate in an  opinion poll has ever gone on to get 50% of the popular vote; likewise, no party has ever been valued at 50% of the popular vote, but then crashed to 1% at election time. A leas, as ar as I know. The opinion polls are not that inaccurate. I suppose that the nearest to such a situation was in 2019, when, at one point, Brexit Party was estimated to have a popular support in the region of 25%, but crashed to 2% in the actual election.

Having said the above, the 25%+ scored in the opinion polls by Brexit Party was well ahead of the actual election result. The polls taken nearer to polling day were fairly accurate, all putting Farage’s instant “party” at under 5%.

In other words, looking at the most recent opinion polls, Labour is now in really serious trouble. Some of the Jews who wanted rid of Corbyn are now half-heartedly praising Keir Starmer, as are msm scribblers, saying that there is now a real Opposition (etc). Well, Keir Starmer is married to a Jewish woman, and his children are being brought up in a Jewish milieu. The “support” for Starmer from “them” is therefore unsurprising.

To continue the theme, we all know that “a week is a long time in British politics”, as Harold Wilson said in the 1960s. All one can say is that, at present, in May 2020, Labour is on the ropes. Somewhere around 30% to 33%. Its 2019 General Election result was 32.1% of the popular vote. My conclusion? Getting rid of Corbyn has not helped Labour as a party at all. Not that the Jews as a group care. They, as a group, vote “Conservative” anyway. Only about 5% of Jews vote Labour these days. Their only interest is that Corbyn has gone and that, along with that, the Jewish-Zionist element has regained control of Labour.

Clinton once said that he could (and did) reduce “welfare” benefits to the bare bones because the poorer part of American society will still vote Democrat. As he said, “where else will they go?“. Until they did (go). First to the Republicans under George W. Bush, then to Obama, the, er, Great White Hope (or whatever), and then, in desperation, to Donald Trump (under Republican banner).

Look at the UK. NWO/ZOG political superstar Tony Blair and his advisers said, of what some call the UK “white working class”, “where can they go?“. Well, now we know (so far). The Scots working classes left first, favouring the faux-“nationalist” SNP.

Back in 1997, Scottish Labour held or won 56 out of the then 72 Scottish seats at Westminster. Vote-share 45.6%. Since the 2019 General Election, Scottish Labour has had 1 seat at Westminster (out of 59) on a vote-share of 18.6%. For the first time since 1918, Scottish Labour is only the 4th party in Scotland, in terms of seats. 1959-2015, it was always the 1st party. It slipped to 2nd in 2015, 3rd in 2017 and 4th in 2019.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Labour#UK_general_elections

True, Scottish Labour still received a vote-share of 18.6% in 2019, but that counts for little in FPTP voting. That share was, in any case, the lowest Labour vote in Scotland since 1910.

The SNP supremacy since 2015 means that Labour, as a UK national party, has effectively no chance of a majority at Westminster, and that the best it can hope for is an arrangement with the SNP, which after all, is a kind of social-democratic party. That’s assuming that Labour in England and in Wales can improve its position. Any such uplift in Labour fortunes is very doubtful.

In 2019, as I predicted, former Labour voters voted with their feet. Look at the very cleverly-conceived graphic below:

GeneralElection2019

As can be seen, almost as many former Labour voters abstained as voted for all the other parties put together.

The anti-Corbyn element in Labour and the msm (basically a Jewish claque) said that Corbyn was the reason voters were unwilling to vote Labour. That was partly true, though mainly because the Judenpresse had been hitting at him for 4 years. There were other factors, some connected with Corbyn, some not.

The deadhead MPs in Labour were (and remain) part of the problem: Diane Abbott, Fiona Onasanya (now an “unperson”, expelled from Labour and imprisoned), Kate Osamor, Dawn Butler etc. I blogged about a few of them:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/21/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-fiona-onasanya-story/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/02/troop-cartload-barrel-or-family/

That black/brown group was very much tied-in with Corbyn who, notoriously, had had, as a young man, a fling with Diane Abbott:

DLoVt8oXUAA5KMb

As a matter of fact, the Labour performance under Corbyn, in popular-vote terms, was better than under both Miliband and Brown. The seats gained or retained by Labour in 2019 were far fewer, though; in 2017, Corbyn did better than his two predecessors in terms of seats too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labour_Party_(UK)#UK_general_elections

Under Keir Starmer, the Shadow Cabinet is full of Labour Friends of Israel members, Corbyn and his cronies have gone and Labour is now rising in the polls and looking more credible every day that passes. Oh, no…wait. Belay the last couple of points…

In fact, Labour is in every way stagnant. Stagnant in the polls. Almost invisible in the news. Supporting pretty much everything the Boris-idiot “Conservative” joke-government is doing re. Coronavirus, and only mildly criticizing bits and pieces. Pathetic.

The problem Labour has is firstly ideological, in that socialism in the old sense died in and around 1989. In the early 1990s, Labour finally admitted to itself that it had stopped being “socialist”. It became “social-democratic” and then, under Blair, outright finance-capitalist with “socialist” and “social-democratic” fig leaves.

Now, Labour is just a label, which loudmouth Friends of Israel MP, Jess Phillips, said (with her customary grace) is “just a f****** rose

VOTE LABOUR - ROSE FLAG 25mm 1" Pin Badge SUPPORT JEREMY CORBYN ...

What does a symbol mean? If nothing, then the party whose symbol it is, is nothing.

We have seen that the Scottish “working classes” etc have largely deserted Labour. In fact, now that Corbyn is gone, it may be that Labour’s 18.6% vote in 2019 will become closer to 10% or lower whenever the next general election is held.

We have also seen that the English “working classes” have been deserting Labour. That is especially the case in the North and Midlands, the so-called “red wall” of the past. The scandal of the Muslim Pakistani rape gangs killed Labour for many, as Labour’s Common Purpose placemen and women in politics, local government, the police and (inevitably) social services ignored the widespread abuse of white English girls by (mainly) Pakistanis.

Likewise on the wider immigration point. The “Conservatives” have been hopeless on mass immigration (aka “migration-invasion”) and basically just “talk a good game”, but Labour actually and deliberately encouraged the migration invasion, in order to destroy Britain’s race and culture. That fact was leaked by Labour insiders. The Jews Phil Woolas and Barbara Roche were behind much of it. They became so toxic that neither was able to find other seats for which to stand.

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

The cartoonists picked up on it, both at the time and then later, when Corbyn was leader:

The UK electoral system, as it applies in England at least, is binary. At present, the two parties supposedly opposed to each other are not in equal positions. The Conservative Party, having fluked a large majority, is in government for the moment, and probably until 2024, certainly until 2022. The Labour Party has become a total irrelevance.

As I have previously blogged (and, before the Jews had me expelled from Twitter, tweeted), Labour is now the party of the public service employees, of the blacks and other ethnic minorities (except the Jews) and of the mostly urban, maybe young or young-ish supporters of failed “multiculturalism” and pseudo-socialism. About 25% of the population. There are some old Labour loyalists around, too. In toto, maybe 30% of the population. Which is where Labour is in the polls. I cannot see Labour getting much beyond that now. Keir Starmer may be without scandal (as far as we know) but he is as dull as ditchwater. New ideas for society? None.

When you take away old-style socialism, when the old Labour communities in the industrial heartland of England no longer exist, when Labour no longer represents Britain’s history, race and culture, what is left? Nothing.

The same or similar, mutatis mutandis, could be said about the Conservative Party, up to a point, but the misnamed “Conservatives” still have a southern England voting bloc which, though ageing and fraying, is still there.

To return to those words of Clinton and Blair, “where will they go?”. Well, not to Labour (from other parties). To apathy, but only so long as doing nothing is less painful than doing something.

Labour’s slow death has left the Conservative Party in the ascendant. When that star starts to fall, Labour will not benefit. A new party might.

Coronavirus and culling (killing)

The original Daily Telegraph comment piece takes the amorality of present-day “Conservatism”  to a new level, at least in public discourse. Openly supporting the death of millions in order to support the finance-capitalist economy.

This is a logical consequence of what has been happening in society and especially in the Conservative Party over the past decade or so. We saw it in the Dunce Duncan Smith DWP regime (which continues, though without Dunce), in the way in which broadly the poorer part of society has been harried and bullied etc.

This is not even, or not only, political as such. It is a question of morality. It shows to what extent ideas such as those of the “philosopher of selfishness”, the “Russian” Jewess, Ayn Rand, have permeated the West. In the UK, mainly the Conservative Party. Raceless, cultureless, rootless persons such as Sajid Javid, who openly enthuses about Ayn Rand and her pathetic ideas.

I wonder how many of the almost entirely elderly, Conservative-voting persons who read the Telegraph realize that the newspaper and the Conservative Party regard their death as something rather positive?

It also shows to what extent society, UK society, has lost its “moral compass”.

The Jews are always pushing the “Nazis were terrible” line, but here we have mass killing of the mainly British elderly openly praised by the most influential and “serious” newspaper in Britain (though few newspapers are now really serious) and in our supposedly wonderful, supposedly “liberal” society…and only a few dissident pseudo-socialists on Twitter take exception (apart from social-national “extremists” like me, I suppose).

This is the kind of political amorality that has suffused our society over more than a decade. Effectively over two decades. We now have someone posing as “Prime Minister” who has no morality at all (and in fact no real intellectual life, just a dummy education in the classics, injected into him in his youth). A completely amoral Prime Minister, without any ideas worth anything, and without principle. He is also useless in a crisis.

Boris-idiot is advised (as good as controlled) by Dominic Cummings, himself someone of disordered mind, and whose own relatively brief business career, in the 1990s, was marked by complete failure.

The Twitterstorm continues, but few have expressed the points that

  • Twitter is not real life,
  • Twitter is not very influential in reality,
  • Twitter changes nothing.

So here we are, after 500-600 years of post-mediaeval culture:

  • pandemic
  • no medicines work against the epidemic/pandemic
  • antibiotics are not working or are irrelevant to the situation
  • anyone unwell must “self-isolate” in their own home, with or without a red cross painted on the door
  • State (NHS) help is unavailable for most people
  • the only advice is “wash your hands frequently”

Nadine Dorries

Ironically, the junior health minister (PUS), Nadine Dorries [Con, Mid Bedfordshire https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadine_Dorries] has become the first MP to fall victim to the virus (she is recovering in “self-isolation” at time of writing).

Even with Boris-idiot failing to fill the shoes of a prime minister, even with a deadhead Cabinet, the Conservatives are yet on 50% of the popular vote, with Labour on a mere 29%. Labour has lost touch with the people generally and the people generally have thus cut Labour loose. Labour continues to dominate the Twittersphere, the inner city metro-London space, the world of the NHS and other public services, the loyalty of the blacks and browns. Otherwise? Dead and unlikely to have more than a limited revival.

Shortages

The loo paper panic-buying (in the UK and other —mainly Anglo— countries) is based not so much on practicality or prepping as on psychological foundations.

A few basic things maintain our sense of modern, civilized life, of Western civilization in fact. These are not intangibles such as music, philosophy, the confused ideas of “democracy”, however important those may be, but tangibles: electricity, running water, flush loos and, with those, loo paper.

We laugh at those stockpiling loo paper (so long as we ourselves have “enough”), because we may say “having loo paper will not prevent you getting Coronavirus/Covid-19”, and that is true. It is also true that having a stock of loo paper will not help you much if you do get the virus, because you will use little if any more paper than usual, and the sickness will pass (whatever happens) within a couple of weeks. The average person therefore needs only a stock of perhaps 6-18 rolls. The real point is the psychology.

We feel afraid, to a greater or lesser extent; we feel insecure. The State, NHS, police, whatever, do not offer security, least of all during this virus crisis. We therefore, as a society, turn to basic needs and amplify them. Electricity, running water etc cannot be stockpiled, not by the individual citizen. Loo paper can be stockpiled, though. Ergo, bulk buying…

The bulk buying of loo paper and some other items is an attempt to wrest back control of everyday life from the vortex of uncertainty.

I might add that, so far, the bulk buying has not stopped. I was at Waitrose late yesterday (they shut at 2000 hours here). No hand gel on sale, other cleaning items for the home largely sold out. The entire stock of loo paper sold out, not a roll left (and a cashier with whom I chatted told me that when she started her shift hours before, the stock had already gone…). The cheaper own-brand pasta also sold out (except for peculiarly-shaped pasta). Also, tinned tomato and, to a lesser extent, tinned sweetcorn.

There were, however, fewer actual shoppers than usual.

I would not want to add to the semi-panic, but I have discovered that the loo paper used in the UK comes, most of it, from overseas: 1.1 million tonnes out of 1.3 million. That’s the raw material. So it is not beyond reason to think that there might be a shortage if supply lines are disrupted.

However, we know, as far as Coronavirus is concerned, that there is a wave which rises and eventually falls. Weeks, maybe a few months at most, certainly not years. The most loo paper that any normal individual needs to have, based on 90 days, would therefore be somewhere around (arguably) 30 rolls. Maybe even as little as 20 rolls. So even a family of 4 people would need no more than (between) 80-120 rolls at absolute maximum. For 3 months’ supply. That must put the matter into perspective from the purely logical point of view.

The vicious defendants are merely described in the Daily Mirror as “from Lincoln”. No mention of the fact that they are Roma gypsies from Romania, as is obvious to any thinking person from their appearance and names. If they cannot be simply disposed of, they should at least be deported (and preferably sterilized first).

People often wonder why the public accepts “fake news”. Part of that is because the Zionist-influenced msm so often conceals real news.

Budget

The spending plans set out by Rishi Sunak today should have been put in place, speaking in overall terms, in 2010, 2011, 2012. Other countries, including USA and Germany, and France (among many others) did that to counteract the crazed meltdown of the “banking system” (i.e. the last finance-capitalism crisis) in 2007-2008.

Those countries did much better economically than the UK in the past decade, and they have not had to endure the social miseries caused directly by the sort of policies put in place by George Osborne, that pathetic little part-Jew sadist. Spending cuts, “austerity” (for half of the population) etc.

b-cisxdiqaa7qj_-jpg-large

Look at Germany at the end of the Great Depression. Six million unemployed, the economy stagnant etc. The National Socialist government from 1933 got everything moving, and crucially started that happening by acts of political will. New projects were part of it, but the will to move forward energized everything. The will stemmed from one man, Adolf Hitler. He transmitted the will to his immediate followers and to the NSDAP, which then moved the whole country forward. Yes, part of the improvement was the removal of exploitation by Jews (though Jews still owned vast parts of the German economy for years after that, right up to 1939 in some cases), but the real cause of Germany’s uplift was the programme put in place to do things.

In relation to the second part of the notice immediately above: in the USA, Henry Ford introduced the 40-hour week in 1926, though it had become the norm in the American newspaper printing industry even before WW1.

Final word for today

I think that it is absolutely legitimate to be angry at China for repeatedly unleashing dangerous viruses on the rest of the world mainly because of the generally disgusting Chinese attitude to animals, because of the fact that the Chinese in China will use and eat virtually anything, and often keep and use animals in disgusting ways.

There is much to admire in both the ancient Chinese culture and the contemporary Chinese capabilities, but political correctness and moral cowardice must not stop us from inflicting on China justified criticism, though of course no individual Chinese (especially in Europe) should be held accountable.

Diary Blog 24 December 2019

Why did 2017 Labour voters not vote Labour in 2019?

Presumably, “anti-Semitism” counts as “extremism” in the minds of YouGov (God knows why; to me it just seems to be a commonsense attitude of self-defence!). “Extremism”…only 3% thought that that was a reason not to vote Labour.

What does “leadership” mean in this context? Corbyn only (demonized by the msm for over 4 years)? Diane Abbott?

Half or just over half the voters have heard of the names of three of the Labour leadership contenders, the remaining six contenders (more may enter the lists later) being unknown to the majority of voters. Even uncultured loudmouth Jess Phillips is only known by name to 42% of the electorate. She will be mortified.

As to who voters would like as Labour leader, Keir Starmer leads the pack, but only on 9%, just ahead of Jess Phillips on 8%…

Next General Election?

The trend is towards greater volatility. The new Conservative Party MPs from the North and Midlands may disappear if either radical Labour or a new party can capture the voters’ newly-fickle allegiance.

Many of the new Conservative seats are held with small majorities. Not all. The main point anyway is not the size of the majority or the swing, but the volatility. Labour had held some of those seats since they were established, in some cases a century ago.

What has happened is that the deep-seated loyalty of many former industrial areas to Labour has been eroding for a number of years (for 30 years, arguably). That allegiance has not been replaced by a similar loyalty to the Conservative Party. It has been replaced by an angry volatility.

The allegiance of the long-held Conservative areas in the South of England and elsewhere (East Anglia etc) is of a different nature, based largely around self-interest, though habit also plays a part. Low taxes (income taxes, inheritance tax, taxes on capital gains, council tax etc), and a lazy reluctance to spend much (or any) time on ideology.

In the Northern and some other formerly industrial areas, it was different. Heavy industry, socialism or at least social-democracy, areas with a high level of community on the basis of class solidarity. That whole ambience has been eroding for decades and that erosion has now affected the political sphere in a noticeable way.

That Labour ambience has not been replaced by a Conservative equivalent, just as the heavy industry of the past has not been replaced by anything solid or secure. There is, in short, a vacuum. The Conservatives rushed into that vacuum because they were, indeed are, the only game in town beyond Labour. The other two possibilities, Liberal Democrat and Brexit Party were perceived as small (and so possible wasted votes), but also as adjuncts of the Conservatives.

The LibDems were mortally wounded by having not only concluded alliance with the Conservatives in 2010, but also by the way in which the LibDems behaved during the years 2010-2015, the years of the Con Coalition. There was a certain “f***-you” arrogance about the LibDem ministers of those years, horrible little blots such as Danny Alexander and, of course, Nick Clegg himself. At times, they seemed to be worse than even the Conservatives.

Jo Swinson voted for all of the terrible measures the Conservative Party brought in, from bedroom tax to the hounding of the sick and disabled. Well, the bitch has learned now that the voters were not asleep after all. And all Swinson’s weaselling about that, and all her doormatting for the Jews, could not save her (she lost her own seat) or her party. In fact, Boris-idiot’s then elevation of Jo Swinson to instant “baroness” may just have finally attached to the LibDems the chains that will sink them and send that party to the bottom. The voters are disgusted by Jo Swinson.

As for Brexit Party, its standing down of candidates in seats held by the Conservatives showed to voters in Labour-held seats that Brexit Party was/is a pro-Conservative fake party controlled by a devious con-man.

The result? Not a Conservative triumph so much as a Labour rout, but the result is similar.

A new party could capture a huge number of votes in the right circumstances, now that vast areas of the country are politically-volatile. Not only those voters who voted, but also the third of voters so disengaged that they did not vote, despite being registered to vote.

Amusing tweets seen re. Boris-idiot:

I have for some years made the point that Boris-idiot has managed to fool many people (including many who should have known better) that he is some kind of great brain, based on his ability to speak a few lines of rote-learned Latin or Greek, together with a few long and never-seen words trawled from the Oxford English Dictionary.

Those “talents” do not in themselves show great intelligence. I myself can still recall and speak a few chunks of A Month in the Country [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Month_in_the_Country_(play)] in the original Russian, learned in the early 1980s along with The Cherry Orchard and other works from the (mostly) 19thC Russian canon. In fact, I would put myself up against Boris-idiot in any activity or sphere (except rugby and degeneracy) with the full expectation of defeating him.

Farage: did he stab his own candidates in the back for a knighthood?

My reading of Farage is that he would prefer a million or two stashed in BVI or Panamanian accounts to an official honour of that sort, but who knows (either way…)?

Interesting article on falling life expectancy in the UK

Austerity in the UK was a political choice made in the summer of 2010. Its effects have been devastating.”

“The UK has reduced public spending to 36% of GDP by the end of 2019 from a peak of 41% in 2006. Today, rates of public spending in the UK as a whole are only a fraction above those of the US. Almost every other country in the EU spends more on its public services than the UK does; almost every other country in Europe now has a lower infant mortality than the UK.” [The Correspondent]

CPS charge re. cat deaths:

A man has been accused of attacking 16 cats, nine of which were killed over the space of eight months in Brighton.

Sussex police charged Steven Bouquet, 52, a security guard, with 16 counts of criminal damage relating to the wounding or killing of 16 cats between between 2 October 2018 and 1 June 2019.

The charges are part of Operation Diverge, the force’s investigation into a number of cat deaths in the city of Brighton and Hove.

Bouquet, who was also charged with possessing a knife in a public place, is due to appear at Brighton magistrates court on 23 January.

The South East district crown prosecutor, Sally Lakin, said: “Following a spate of attacks on cats in the Brighton area, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has authorised Sussex police to charge Steven Bouquet with 16 charges of criminal damage, relating to attacks on 16 cats, nine of which were killed and seven were seriously injured.

“The allegations relate to incidents which took place between 2 October 2018 and 1 June 2019. This is a complex case and this decision was made following a careful review of all of the evidence presented to us.”

The CPS said it had carefully considered which charges would be most appropriate in the case and concluded the defendant should be charged with criminal damage.

“This does not in any way detract from the seriousness of the offence or the great distress these incidents will have caused the owners of the cats,” the CPS said. “However, under current legislation, cats and other animals are deemed as property.”

The charge of animal cruelty was thought inappropriate as the defendant was not the owner of the cats. It would also attract a lesser sentence than criminal damage.” [Guardian]

Diary Blog, 19 December 2019

First, some music:

The General Election continues to supply interesting facts.

The “experts” are still working on General Election 2019 statistics. One that I saw today was that, because Brexit Party was standing in Labour-held seats, the Conservative Party was deprived of another 20 seats.

I have already blogged about how Labour got (in rough figures) about 37% of the vote in Hartlepool (its lowest-ever share), while Brexit Party got about 25% and the Cons 28%. Had Brexit Party not stood, the Cons would have won Hartlepool! The same is true the other way round too, of course. In fact, I wonder whether Brexit Party might not have won Hartlepool anyway had Farage not stood down his candidates in Conservative-held seats. His action in doing that destroyed Brexit Party’s credibility and totally exposed it as a fake and as basically a shield for the Con Party.

The other piece of election-related news I saw was that, if the proposed boundary changes go ahead, as well as the reduction of MP numbers to 600, the Conservative Party would have a majority of 104 on the GE 2019 voting figures. The Cons would have fewer seats, 352, than the 365 they now have, but Labour would have only 179 compared to the present 208. SNP would have almost the same number as at present (47), maybe minus one or two. The LibDems would have 7 MPs instead of 11.

I do not know how the absence of Brexit Party (which must surely just fold soon) would affect those figures. If it meant that the Cons would get 20 or even 10 seats more, then that would give the Cons an unassailable advantage, about 360 or 370 seats out of 600. With Labour on maybe 169 or even 159 out of 600, the changes would reduce Labour to near irrelevance and the LibDems to near-zero.

It occurred to me that, in the (admittedly very unlikely) contingency that Scotland became “independent” (of the UK, though not from the EU, IMF, NATO etc…that’s another story), its (presently) 59 (or reduced figure) MPs would be removed, leaving the Westminster Parliament with about 540. That would, notionally, entrench Conservative rule in England and Wales even more. Without the SNP, Labour would be a small niche party with no possibility even of minority government.

but…

We have seen (noted in previous blogs) that relatively few young people voted Conservative at GE 2019:

  • 18-24s only 23% (Labour 56%)
  • 25-29s 23% (Labour 54%)
  • 30-39s 30% (Labour 46%).
  • Only the over-40s gave Conservative a plurality of votes (41%, with Labour on 35%)
  • and only the over-60s and over-70s gave the Cons a majority (57% and 67% as against Labour’s 22% and 14%).
  • LibDem support was consistent at all ages at 11%-12% (with a slight increase among 30-y-o people: 14%).

https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2019/12/17/how-britain-voted-2019-general-election

If you were to take out the over-70s and introduce a notional new 18-24 wave, that would change the overall picture entirely. The Conservative majority might well disappear, perhaps to be replaced by a Labour majority.

If only life were that simple!

The bias of Radio 4 Today Programme

I rarely listen to the Today Programme for more than a few minutes these days. It was never much to my taste, but now it is basically a Jewish-lobby-oriented multikulti-favouring, finance-capitalist-favouring propaganda outlet.

When Justin Webb (one of the presenters) finished his time in the USA and joined the Today Programme, he was asked about the difference between the UK and USA. His answer? (and remember this was after eight years in the US)…He told the old old apocryphal story about how, in each country, a poor man sees a rich man driving a Rolls-Royce or Cadillac. In the UK, the poor man says “I have nothing; he has too much” but in the USA, the poor man says “I have nothing, but one day I too shall have such a car“…

Is that the sort of  “insight” we get when drones such as Justin Webb get paid £200,000-£300,000 a year out of the BBC’s “licence fees” (a tax imposed on the viewing public, on pain of imprisonment if unpaid)? Sadly, yes, that is exactly the sort of “insight” that those on the Today Programme provide…

Another aspect of the Today Programme is the religio-philosophical platitude-slot, sub nom “Thought For The Day“. About one day out of five, a Jew (usually some “rabbi”) does it. It seems to be about 1 out of 5 (20%), it may be (but no, I think not) as infrequently as 1 out of 10 (10%). Yet Jews in the UK number 250,000-300,000, so perhaps about 1 out of 280 (perhaps fewer), which is a fraction of one percent; in rough figures about 0.25%. Look at the disproportion. 1 out of about 280 of the whole population, but 1 out of 5 or so on Thought For The Day!

Here’s a “Thought For The Day”

There must be a curb (i.e. a tax) on the huge concentrations of economic power (capital wealth) in the hands of so very few. That applies to the USA, the UK, Russia and elsewhere.

Stray read

Saw this. Worth a look.

Probably a great deal easier in the Floridian climate than it would be in Northern Europe, though.

A few more thoughts about Labour

I read this:

and this:

As I have been saying for several years in blogs and (before the Jews had me expelled from Twitter) in tweets, Labour declined parallel to the decline of the society and conditions and people that created and sustained it.

Lisa Nandy

Just read her recent tweets. The odd spelling mistake. As to content, not an airhead, neither in the obvious Jess Phillips way, nor in the less obvious Caroline Flint way.

I of course disagree with quite a lot of what Lisa Nandy says, eg re. “refugees” and other migrant-invaders, but she seems politically-effective. Obviously a System politician but of a higher calibre than the average MP (including most of Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet).

Stray thought

Mao said that the guerrilla was like a fish, swimming in the water (the people). Looking at tweets from the most fervent Corbyn supporters, there is plenty of water but (so far) no fish.

Labour’s problem

Labour’s problem is that the more “socialist” leaders of recent decades (Corbyn, Miliband, Kinnock) failed to “win” elections under the existing electoral system and so some Labour people say “return to good old Tony” because Blair won three successive elections. However, what really happened was that Blair-Labour won in 1997 against a tired fag-end of a Conservative government, after 18 years of Con government, but then struggled to win in 2001 and 2005.

The figures:

  • 1997: 43.2%, 419 seats; Blair
  • 2001: 40.7%, 413 seats; Blair
  • 2005: 35.3%, 356 seats; Blair
  • 2010: 29.1%, 258 seats; Brown
  • 2015: 30.5%, 232 seats; Miliband
  • 2017: 40.0%, 262 seats; Corbyn
  • 2019: 32.2%, 202 seats; Corbyn

The anomalies caused by Britain’s crazy FPTP voting system and the carefully-“managed” boundaries account for some inconsistencies; also, the total number of MPs in Parliament has varied from 646 to 659 even in the past 25 years.

You can see from the above timeline that, in the sense of national vote-percentage, Corbyn in 2017 did about as well as Blair did in 2001, nearly as well as Blair did in 1997 (!) and far better than Blair and Labour did in 2005. Corbyn also, both in 2017 and 2019, did as well as or better than both Brown and Miliband did in 2010 and 2015.

In 2019, Corbyn-Labour slumped, but still got 32.2% of the national vote, which was as good in rough figures as Miliband in 2015, and better than Brown in 2010. In fact, it was only 3 points off Blair’s 2005 performance.

The national vote percentage of Labour declined steadily from 1997 right through to Corbyn’s leadership! The 2010 and 2015 results were similar in terms of percentage. Corbyn did better than his two most recent predecessors and almost as well as Blair!

I say the above not to praise Corbyn, but to bury Labour. It can be seen that both the Tony Blair 43.2% in 1997 and the Corbyn 40% in 2015 were anomalous in a picture otherwise of decline, or at best stagnation, that started around 1970.

My main point in practical terms is that returning to some mythical “Centrism” will not help Labour. “Centrism” seems to be somewhere between “Con-lite” and social democracy; pro Israel; anti-socialist; anti-national; globalist. Finance capitalism but with some crumbs thrown to the pigeons. You have seen what has happened to the LibDems who espouse similar ideas. Smashed. 11 MPs, which will, after boundary changes and another election, probably be 3 or 4. Or none.

Of course, Labour’s poor recent performance was to a large extent the result of truly relentless Jew-Zionist propaganda since 2015 and especially since the 2017 result (which showed that Labour might actually be able to win a majority or at least become the largest party in the Commons). Labour, especially Corbyn, has been trashed daily in the msm as well as on social media. That was not the only factor, but it was very significant.

The idea that Labour will suddenly become “electable” if it bows the knee to the Jews and abandons any “socialist” ideas is ridiculous. In fact, Corbyn and McDonnell should have stopped parrotting the Zionist “holocaust” nonsense (and stopped recounting 1930s Communist/Jewish propaganda around “Cable Street” etc as well); they should have fought back. Idiots.

Corbyn supporters write

“Cosmic Landmine” used to follow my Twitter account (before the Jews had me expelled). Good to see that he is still trucking.

Below, a despairing Labour supporter tweets…

Perhaps that tweet should read “Why is Jess Phillips, who always doormats for the Jew-Zionists, is a member of Labour Friends of Israel, parrots “holocaust” propaganda, and who trashed her own party and leader during the recent General Election campaign, getting so much airtime?“…

Look at this Daily Mirror article by a former Labour adviser. Not a word about suffering British people: unemployed, poor, disabled, sick, young people without hope of their own homes or even decently-paid work, just two or three paragraphs about Jews Jews Jews. Typical. System-Labour:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/i-ran-jeremy-corbyns-leadership-21103136

It’s rubbish. That’s machine-“Labour”, Mirror “Labour”, Kevin Maguire tribal “Labour”. Failed Labour.

…and here is Matthew d’Ancona, another System mouthpiece and Conservative Party partisan, pushing bad joke MP Jess Phillips for Labour leader:

https://www.standard.co.uk/comment/comment/talented-strong-and-relatable-jess-phillips-is-labour-s-best-asset-a4316766.html

Mary Creagh

Seems that Mary Creagh cannot quite bring herself to accept that her well-paid position, with its decent salary, very generous expenses and plenty of opportunity for both “donations” from here and there and also outside income possibilities such as “consultancies”, has been taken away by the voters of Wakefield. She still calls herself “MP” on Twitter. As rather sarcastic people tend to say on Twitter, “bless”.

Mary Creagh is a member of Labour Friends of Israel, and a frequent and fervent critic of “anti-Semitism”. All the same, the Jewish lobby could not save her and she will not be an MP again. I expect that “they” —you know, (((they)))— will find her “a nice little earner”, but her eviction from Westminster must give those “Friends of Israel” still in Parliament pause, nicht wahr?

Note the final sentence at the foot of that Independent profile of Wakefield, Yorkshire, a few weeks before the General Election: “Personally,” he says, “I think a lot of people here just won’t vote. I think they’ve had enough of it all.

Was that not the truth of the GE 2019 result? Conservative vote up just 1.2% nationally, but Labour vote down, and by 8%. Labour may have lost, but this was not a Conservative victory, as such. People were not voting Labour, maybe not voting at all, or were in a few cases voting Con to spite Lab. They were not voting Con for “positive” reasons.

Blink and you would miss it

Ah, nearly missed it: a small news story about the winding-down or winding-up of the “Independent Group for Change”, briefly known as “Change UK”, the party whose meetings tended to attract a crowd of about 5 (literally), once or twice actually getting into double figures, and where the audience was always outnumbered by the Press and sometimes by the few on stage.

Anna Soubry is now off to swim in a vat of gin.

Trump impeachment

Americans like a bit of drama. When I lived in the central/shore area of New Jersey, local TV (based in New York City) would sometimes report on an expected storm, sending a reporter out onto the New Jersey beaches dressed in raincoat and scarf. Often enough, the waves were disappointingly languid, resulting in a non-event.

That is how I see the “Trump impeachment”— lots of noise, but no result that means anything. Trump is sent for trial by the Democrat-controlled lower house, sent for trial to a Senate where the Republican majority will secure his acquittal. Over there, they regard that sort of waste of time and effort as “democracy”. I just call it “farce”.

Meanwhile, in another fake democracy…

Something more to think about

Final words

Further Thoughts About The Recent General Election

I am just putting down stray thoughts. I shall update this during the day and thereafter.

I have already blogged about the General Election result:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/12/13/reflections-on-the-2019-general-election/

It may be that the most significant fact about the General Election result is that the Conservative Party vote increased by only 1.2 points vis a vis 2017, from 42.4% to 43.6%.

The Labour vote decreased from about 40% to 32.2%. So about 8 points.

It follows that this was not some kind of “Conservative” surge, but a function of the relative collapse of the Labour vote. It also means that Boris-idiot in 2019 is scarcely more popular than was Theresa May in 2017.

Logically, it is unlikely that the economic and social situation in the UK will improve much, if at all, between now and 2022, let alone December 2024, the maximum term of this Boris-idiot government.

We know that, as far as members go, the Con Party has, or had earlier this year, 140,000 members, a quarter of the size of Labour; of which 90,000+ voted for Boris Johnson to lead them. Members, though, are less important than voters.

The membership of the Conservative Party increased greatly in late-2018 to early-2019. 36,000 new members. There were speculations about “entryism”, maybe by former UKIP members:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jun/21/more-than-half-of-tory-members-would-ruin-party-over-brexit

It is a fair inference that those new 36,000+ members were almost all Boris partisans. Without them, he might even not have been elected leader.

The Conservative Party is now in charge of a government built on shifting sands.

The average Conservative member is over 60 now (though all major System parties now have averages over 50). About half are over 70 years of age.

The typical Conservative voter is at least middleaged, and in fact usually an elderly person. Only in those over about 60 years of age is there a majority in favour of the Conservative Party.

The above-cited Guardian article now adds this rider:

“• This article was amended on 24 June 2019 because an earlier version referred to a supposed “geriatric membership”. Geriatric refers to a branch of medicine; octogenarian was meant. This has been corrected.”

An “octogenarian” membership?!

The obvious if ghoulish corollary to the above is that very many Conservative Party members and many Con voters will not see the next general election (assuming that there is one…).

Shifting sands

The new Conservative MPs from the North and Midlands represent areas traditionally not Conservative. The roots are shallow.

One sees that the constituencies where the Labour Party was not so much affected by the mainly white voter-defection to the Conservative Party were those areas largely inhabited by non-whites. See, for example, Liz Kendall’s seat at Leicester West:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leicester_West_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

  • Liz Kendall got just under 50% of the vote, compared to about 60% in 2017 and about 47% in 2015.
  • David Lammy’s seat at Tottenham:  76% in 2019, as against 82% in 2017 and 67% in 2015

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leicester_West_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

The msm-applauded “surge” to the Conservatives (in fact only 1.2 points) nationally, which was really an 8-point withdrawal from Labour, has scarcely touched those and similar seats. That supports my view that Labour, in terms of votes, is now largely (not entirely) the party of the “blacks and browns”.

It also supports my view that what the people really want, subconsciously, is a less militarized, less German, more “British” form of National Socialism, but brought into the contemporary arena as social-nationalism or the like.

If the economy tanks for whatever reason (mishandled Brexit, a continuation of the “austerity” nonsense of Osborne and Cameron-Levita, world events), then the brief “popularity” of Boris-idiot and the misnamed “Conservatives” (which in any case is not so: Con Party up only 1.2 points; though Labour is unpopular) will soak away into the desert sand. Will the people then look to “Labour”? Or elsewhere?

One thing is sure: the people cannot vote for a party that does not exist.

So far, since the demise of the BNP, the only alternatives —indeed one alternative under two successive names— to System parties have been UKIP and Brexit Party, effectively the same or under the same control when significant. Controlled opposition. Fakes. Parties posing as conservative “nationalist” while having candidates who were black, brown, Jew, you name it. Even a couple of ex-Marxist “revolutionary” lesbians. And the rabbits all accepted it. Even the “antifa” idiot-mob made those parties a major target of their bile, taking them as they assumed that those parties were, not as they really were.

A few quite random tweets I saw today, which seem to be symptomatic of the craziness of the general election farce that the UK’s degenerate political milieu has just held:

People in Scunthorpe (!) so desperate for a better life and a better UK that they will vote Conservative! My take? “Labour is mostly trash, the Conservative Party is 99% trash, and so people clutch at straws as they drown.”

And what about this one (below)? Jew ex-Labour Party types happy that (of all “people”…I call the bastard “devil”) Iain Duncan Smith kept his seat! For the Jews, it really is always “all about them”, whether it be the 2019 General Election, the evil Con regimes of 2010-2019, or the Second World War.

Below: Jews crying with happiness that a finance-capitalist government has been “elected” by lies and big money advertising…

Who is “gnasher jew”? Appropriately enough, they are not one Jew but legion, but here is one, anyway:

“Gnasher Jew” (one of that cabal of several Jews…) tweeted a semi-literate tweet a few months ago to the effect that I am “a convicted anti-Semite”. No, not convicted of “antisemitism” (which would in fact be impossible anyway, because “antisemitism” is not a criminal offence in the UK) or anything else.

Labour news

I see that Laura Pidcock, now 32, lost her seat at North West Durham. She is all too typical of young Labour MPs (many of whom are now ex-MPs): sole non-political job a few weeks or months as a “mental health support worker” (in her case): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Pidcock

Laura Pidcock is so very typical: “anti-racist” “activist”, a kind of post-Marxist; probably solid on grass-roots problems such as poverty, but I doubt that I am guessing too wildly if I say that she probably thinks that mass immigration is great for the people of the UK. And so on. Well, that’s her binned politically.

Now we move on to a Labour MP who, unfortunately, is still in place: Jess Phillips. This ignorant horrible woman was the subject of one of my “Deadhead MPs” blog articles:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/05/07/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-jess-phillips-story/

There is now a push from the Jewish lobby and msm to make this ignorant creature Labour leader! Labour, the party of Attlee, Wilson, Blair (whatever their flaws and whatever my own criticism of their policies and direction)…

Jess Phillips is pushing herself forward, despite her lack of culture and education:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/dec/14/working-class-voters-didnt-trust-labour-jess-phillips

Her article, in that stronghold of “working-class” life, The Observer, says that “disappointed” ex-Labour voters voted Conservative; but we have seen that the Conservative vote only went up, nationally, by 1.2 points, so not many former Labour voters did vote Con. Probably more in the North. Generally, they may well have stayed home and not voted, though.

There is also the point that only two-thirds (67.3%) of those eligible turned out to vote.

As one might expect, Jess Phillips’s article does not identify what Labour might do to regain its position, just says that the swing would have to be on the scale of 1997. I am scarcely a fan of Blair, Brown etc, but we have descended into farce if their positions or roles will be taken by Jess Phillips and…who? Yvette Cooper? (shudders…)

The accompanying photograph certainly makes my point about Labour being now largely the party of the “blacks and browns”! Hardly a white face…

Here (below) we see someone who is evidently not one of the world’s great thinkers:

Ever heard of mass immigration? Also known as “migration-invasion”. 13 million since 1997, plus births, plus illegals. Those eligible to vote and who do vote, all vote Labour.

…and look at this arrogance!

Oh, right….”serious current affairs shows” (there are few, if any, anyway) should not give time to “extremists“….Of course, giving time to Indian “Scottish” women who apparently do stand-up comedy and a bit of msm talking-head droning about politics (mainly about how there is supposedly too much “antisemitism”) is OK… of course….oh, no, wait…

Update, 15 December 2019

As expected, the msm are going mad about the “crushing victory” of Boris-idiot and the Con Party, despite the fact that the Conservative vote-share only increased by 1.2 points over what it was in 2017.

I missed this:

In Hartlepool, where Labour has always won, usually with over 50% of the vote and sometimes with over 60%, Labour won again, but on its lowest vote-share ever, only 37.7%. The stunning fact is that the Conservative candidate, in second place, got 28.9% and the Brexit Party candidate (Tice, Farage’s 2-i-c), got 25.8%. In other words, had either the Conservative Party or Brexit Party not stood, Labour would have lost that once very safe Labour seat, and by some margin.

Back on the Jewish front…

The Jewish actress and anti-Corbyn tweeter, Frances Barber (who was rather rude about me a few times when I had a Twitter account), now suggests (see below) that some Corbyn supporters be shot! Will the police be interested? No. However, were anyone to suggest that Con-supporting or Jewish-lobby-supporting persons should be shot, M. le Commissaire Plod would be on the case immediately.

and note how totally irrelevant New York-based loonie and former/one-time/briefly/disgraced ex-MP Louse —I mean Louise— Mensch, tries to seem relevant to British political life, even now!

The febrile atmosphere today

Perhaps some people take some things too seriously; others just laugh:

Speaking for myself, I’m laughing, or at least smiling, already!

Labour’s slow decline

I usually make fun of Ash Sarkar e.g.https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/01/01/disordered-and-infantile-people/ , but she makes good (if to me obvious) points here:

The Jews are crowing

Partly because they now have a low-tax government packed with Jews, pro-Jews, pro-Israel Zionists, even Israeli agents. Mainly, though, because they have got rid of Corbyn. He and his people may still be there, but they are there in the manner of El Cid in the film with Charlton Heston. The Cid is dead, but is put back on his horse and rides out. In the case of the Cid, to victory, but in the case of Corbyn, over the field of defeat. The Jews have “won”, but only over Corbyn-Labour. “Their” victory may prove to be Pyrrhic and/or short-lived.

Of course, I should have preferred to see a weak, minority government headed by Corbyn, but for me the General Election result also has its good aspects (already blogged about), such as the “Labour Friends of Israel” MPs getting the order of the boot: Ruth Smeeth, Anna Turley, Mary Creagh, Emma Reynolds etc. Luciana Berger also failed. Others too. Parliament has been purged, albeit in limited fashion. John Woodcock, John Mann, Ian Austin— all gone. Jo Swinson too, who was almost creepily pro-Zionist.

[Get down there, you devil, where you wanted me to go!]

Now?

Despite the election result being very much not to my taste, I scent prey here. Now that Labour has been badly wounded, the present evil ZOG regime does not have any real Opposition in Parliament or outside Parliament. The few hundred protesters in Whitehall were easily contained and were little more than an almost-peaceful sideshow.

This should be the moment when a social-national party or movement should arise, with the horns of a lamb and the words of a dragon.

More from Labour

Interesting:

We are witnessing the beginnings of a fundamental realignment in British politics. The old tribalisms are crashing down around us. How Labour responds to this will determine whether it remains a serious political force or is instead destined to become a party of permanent protest.” [Unherd/Blue Labour]

Also:

We’re back! (see below). “Economically-radical” —and national— “socialism”… 

Quite a lot of sense in there, but you cannot put new wine in old bottles. Both Labour and Conservative parties are dying. The election hullabaloo should not disguise that. Labour is going straight down now.

“Centrism”, i.e. returning to Blair-Brown times, the Zionist-Labour controllers monitoring the British people and destroying their race and culture (as well as their rights) will not wash now.

Likewise, multikulti Corbyn-Labourism, with its “anti-racism” and “antifascism”, and its tired, hackneyed references to “No Pasaran!”, “Cable Street”, “kick racism out of…blah blah blah”, and the lip-service paid to (dear God…) WW2 “holocaust” fakery and hoaxes, not to mention support for Cuban “socialism”, 1980s Nicaragua or the disastrous Venezuelan regime, is a very dead duck.

McDonnell, the worst thug “antifascist” (and IRA acolyte) of the lot at senior level in Labour (and who played a double game, sucking up to the Jews at every opportunity), was pictured on TV, in his garden, looking like a bemused “grandad” who has just been tipped out of his wheelchair and mugged. He’s gone, finished.

The “parties” of con-man Farage (UKIP, Brexit Party, any new one he may start) are dead too, as are the LibDems.

Only a new social-national party and movement can save the people of Britain.

Even elements of Labour, as seen above, are starting to recognize the correct direction of travel. What matters are the fundamentals:

  • the elements of a “threefold social order” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_threefolding
  • the foundation for a better society and a better world can only now be that of European race, nation and culture;
  • there must be a cultural revolution to “drain” (or drown) the swamp(s): msm, politics, law, academia.

Westminstermonkeyhouse

Britain’s mass media 2019:

Unsuccessful Parliamentary candidate Fazia Shaheen (Labour), who came fairly close to beating evil Iain Dunce Duncan Smith at Chingford, questioned by presenter Emma Barnett (who describes herself as “a Jew in disguise“) and part-Jew ex-MP Jack Straw.

I was sent interesting information this evening, a map showing what the Parliamentary map of the UK would look like had only those aged 18-24 voted last Thursday (ignore the comment appended by the named “alt-Right/alt-Lite” British-resident ex-Muslim. That comment is absurdly simplistic, ignoring the real reasons why the young favour Labour, i.e. student debt, degrees that are often worthless in all ways, high rent, impossibility of buying a house or even getting a mortgage, low pay, exploitation etc). The map itself is stunning.

118to24voting

You see the result, above. All seats Labour, except for about (?) 20 SNP, about 20 LibDem, and 1 Plaid Cymru. No Conservative Party seats at all, not even in the most affluent parts of the South of England.

That is the train the Conservative Party has coming down the track at it. It may well be that the 18-24 y o voters of today may be less “anti-Conservative”, less pro-Labour in say 2024, when they are 23-29, but even if that map only shows a 75% picture, indeed if it displays even a 50% picture, the future for the Conservative Party is bleak. That bleakness can be intensified by looking at the present Conservative voters aged 65+. That is the hard core of the Conservative vote, and much of it will not exist in 2024.

So, demographically, the Conservative Party vote will have (literally) died by 2024. Not entirely, but to a great extent. The non-Conservative vote will have greatly increased. The only question is, will that new vote be for Labour, or something else, something completely new?

Update, 16 December 2019

Interesting fact. Had Labour received a total of only 2,227 more votes over 7 constituencies in 2017, i.e. about 320 votes extra, averaged, in each of those 7 constituencies, it could then have formed a minority/coalition government with smaller parties:

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/corbyn-election-results-votes-away-prime-minister-theresa-may-hung-parliament-a7782581.html

Corbyn would then have been Prime Minister and Boris-idiot would probably never even have become Conservative leader; at any rate, Labour might have ruled until 2022. Another example of the madness of Britain’s electoral system, whichever way you look at it.

LibDems

Seems that Jo Swinson is likely to get a fake “peerage” soon. A reward for failure? A reward for doormatting for the Jewish lobby, for sure.

Meanwhile, the 11 remaining LibDem MPs will be voting for a leader. Seems that a woman just elected as MP may get the job.

Boundary changes soon to be implemented will probably reduce the LibDem MP cadre to about 3, assuming that any survive the next general election anyway. Is there really any purpose to the LibDems now? The Con Coalition of 2010-2019 destroyed LibDem credibility, then since 2017 Jo Swinson’s behaviour killed any remaining respect that the voters may have retained for this joke party.

The House of Lords is a bad joke too. There are “peers” such as (soon) Jo Swinson, i.e. failed, old or mediocre ex-MPs. There are peers who were “ennobled” because they were cronies of Prime Ministers or other party leaders.

One woman (Michelle Mone) is there because she posed for a while as a successful “entrepreneuse” flogging lingerie. What a farce! [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelle_Mone,_Baroness_Mone#Politics][https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimo_(brand)#History].

That particular one picked up a very wealthy boyfriend later, and is actually at the Lords rarely if at all. At least that saves the State and people the taxfree £310+ per day “peers” are paid if they sign in for 10 minutes! Her company ceased trading in 2018.

Then we have the odds and sods in the Lords, elevated to make a good headline, such as the instant West Indian “baroness” who is in the Lords because her son was killed by white youths in a bus shelter in the 1990s. You really could not make it up!

Jew wants Labour to die

He also wants his pound of flesh…

[by the way, that photo is not him but an actor; the Jew looks very different and not at all “heroic”!][Update, 23 August 2020: the “avatar” photo has gone, replaced by that cartoon. I believe that I once saw “Nuddering”, then on Twitter as “The Nuddering Nudnik” (it means something in Yiddish), on TV: a thin bearded Jew, and possibly with mental problems, in my opinion].

Labour leadership contest (not yet —officially— going)

The System is pushing for Lisa Nandy to replace Corbyn. Below, Kay Burley, Sky News talking head:

Kay Burley is very much of the System msm. Paid hundreds of thousands a year, and her ex-husband (and father of her child) is a Jew:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kay_Burley#Personal_life

I sympathize with Labour members and supporters if the choice is going to be between Lisa Nandy and Jess Phillips. Good grief!

Lisa Nandy is the kind of person the System would love to have as “Labour” leader: half-Indian, grandfather a Liberal Party MP and, in later life, a Liberal peer, and (despite her rhetoric about getting close to “our communities”) has never worked outside politics, unless you include some politicized charity work (researcher etc). Pro-migration-invasion. Anti-Corbyn so probably pro-Jew. Has a child but is not married to the father, who is a “public relations consultant”. She even has a link to one of the renamed and all-but-toothless (and politically-correct) trade unions:

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

http://acolliscommunications.com/

As to Jess Phillips, I blogged about her a while ago:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/05/07/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-jess-phillips-story/

While Lisa Nandy is not my idea of a politician for Britain, and for several reasons, she is a serious figure, whereas Jess Phillips is just a vulgar bad joke.

Jews try to repress free speech in the UK even more now

The “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [CAA] is raising money in order to wage “lawfare” against anyone they label “antisemitic”. In a day or so, the “CAA” has already raised nearly £70,000 from about 30 Jews. About £2,500 average apiece. Of course, to suggest that Jews are more affluent than native/real British people would be “antisemitic”, so they would say…

Meanwhile, the Boris-idiot ZOG (Zionist Occupation Government) and the Zionists “behind the arras” are quickening plans to destroy free speech and dissent:

The Boris Johnson/”Conservative” Party ZOG victory in the general election was procured via Jewish money and mass media influence. “It was the Jews wot won it”, to adapt the famous Sun headline of 1992. See below:

Note the “fellow British citizens” weaselling.

The Golan Heights Chardonnay must have flowed like water.

Now the Zionists are, as noted already, preparing to attack free speech in even more ambitious and evil ways, by using large amounts of Jewish money to misuse the British legal system:

Emily Thornberry threatens to sue ex-MP Caroline Flint! “I’m lovin’ it…”!

Caroline Flint says that Emily Thornberry (aka Lady Nugee— her husband is a half-Jewish High Court judge; see photograph below) said that those in the North etc who voted Conservative instead of voting Labour in their “ancestral”/traditional habit, are or were “stupid”. Well, motivations for voting are complex sometimes, but if Emily Thornberry said that, I can see her point!

EmilyThornberryIsraelLobby

[above, Emily Thornberry, her husband (on right of picture) and the Israeli Ambassador, Mark Regev, at a Zionist banquet in London]

Boris Johnson could ditch promise to guarantee workers’ rights and environmental protections after Brexit, No10 suggests

[headline, The Independent]

Well, that did not take long. 3-4 days into the Boris-idiot ZOG regime and the lying “promises” are already being broken…

Anything is now justifiable to remove “Boris”, his ZOG Cabinet and this whole (misnamed) “Conservative” regime procured by lies and huge amounts of money.

Remember the poll tax?

BBC and other msm bias?

Which is why non-msm news and comment websites have become so popular. Popular with the public, though not with the System.

Now I read that The Canary [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Canary_(website)] is going to be “investigated” by ex-Labour ex-MP and doormat for Zionist Jewry, John Mann. The political and social milieu  in the UK is now almost Stalinist, albeit well-disguised. People, whole parties (Labour now) and news outlets placed “under investigation” by pro-Jew, pro-Israel apostates like Mann and John Woodcock. Ironically, the editor of The Canary is herself a Jewish lesbian.

I suppose that “lord” Mann would approve of the incitement to violence by an ersatz “Jewess” called Charlotte Nichols, who (just) managed to get elected at Warrington North:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warrington_North_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/charlotte-nichols-nazis/

https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/jewish-labour-candidate-antisemitism-something-i-really-want-resolved-general-election-1.494150

In fact this woman, about whom there is not a great deal of information in the public domain, is a convert to Judaism, apparently. The traditional Jews do not even allow that. She made an amusingly bullshit statement to the TV to the effect that “as a Jewish woman” (which she is not, really) “whose grandfather fought in WW2” (so what? So did mine— BEF France, Dunkirk, later Burma— it’s usually Jews who make a big thing of that now, 75-80 years later, to try to sound somehow “credible” on such topics…she has learned from them, it seems…).

Is Charlotte Nichols aware of the terrorism that Jew-Zionist extremists unleashed against British soldiers (soldiers just like her grandfather) in Palestine after (and indeed before) 1945 (and against civilians too)? Bombs, bullets, the Jews even hanged some British soldiers.

“What goes around comes around”… [an American saying]

In fact, I feel that the country is turning away from civilities. The Zionist Jews are intensifying their well-funded abuse of the legal system for political purposes, and here is a “Jewish” woman (ersatz or “self-identifying”, so be it) saying that “Nazis” “should get their heads kicked in“.

In fact this Charlotte Nichols is not a known political quantity. “Brought up in the North West” but “living in London”, according to Wikipedia, which contains little else about her, not even her age or parentage. She has apparently been a trade union office-bod for several years.

This is what she says about herself:

https://www.thejc.com/comment/comment/jewish-convert-kaddish-gaza-charlotte-nichols-1.464705

Here is what the Daily Mail had to say about her prior to her election:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7724983/Labour-election-candidate-probed-police-shes-accused-giving-false-address.html

and the Telegraph:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/11/16/labour-candidatehas-repeatedly-attacked-critics-jeremy-corbyns/

In her TV interview, she mentioned that her opponents “made use of” her “medical history” or some such. Are we talking mental health “issues”? I wonder…

She says that she was born in Romford, East London, but brought up in Reading:

https://tribunemag.co.uk/2019/11/why-im-standing-for-warrington-north

She sounds like a loonie, in fact.

Update, 17 December 2019

Having woken up unwillingly, thanks to a gardener using a very noisy leafblower, my thoughts about what is left of the Labour Party are not very kind, especially having yesterday also noticed the comments of that Warrington North loonie (see above).

The prevailing wind at present comes from the wishful thinking direction. Labour is not the only example. However, it is a good example.

I saw it during the internal election that brought Corbyn to power. One instance was a Labour rally/meeting in York, which was in all the newspapers. Labour sources were ecstatic. Corbyn attracted about 2,000 or more listeners, maybe it was even 5,000. Yet the York area, as I tweeted at the time (the Jews, those benefactors of humanity, had not yet managed to have me expelled from Twitter), has about 210,000 people. You see my point. The crowd may have looked huge but was only 1%-2% of the population.

Nigel Farage was getting crowds of 2,000 recently, but in the end, the net result was almost zero.

Wishful thinking…Yes, Boris-idiot has plenty too, and his supporters more, but I am talking about Labour now.

When I used to hear Corbyn talking about politics, it was often like wandering into the Collet’s London Bookshop in Charing Cross Road c.1976. Militant, Tribune, the Morning Star, posters about anti-apartheid rallies, the socialist struggle in Latin America, Fascism, “No Pasaran!“, Cable Street etc.

Many many years ago, maybe 35-40 years ago, when I was learning Russian, I was always struck by the masthead of the newspaper Izvestia, which showed, inter alia, a picture of the cruiser Aurora, whose single (and blank) shot was a key event in the Bolshevik takeover of late 1917.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_cruiser_Aurora#October_Revolution_mutiny. It always seemed to me a symptom of a state political system preserved in jelly, or ossified. A state stuck in the battles of 60 years before.

The self-described “Left” in Britain is also like that (though I myself always avoid the use of “Right”, “Left” etc as unhelpful and undescriptive). So we get Labour MPs still, in 2019, talking about “Cable Street” (which they evidently do not know much about anyway), and which took place 83 years ago, as if it means something today. No. It does not. https://www.oswaldmosley.com/battle-of-cable-street/

Another myth is that trade unions still mean something. They don’t. Anyone listening to the last few Secretaries-General of the TUC could understand easily that the old powerful (sometimes too powerful) British trade unions of the 1970s and 1980s, destroyed by the outcome of a few large strikes (notably the Miners’ Strike) and by other factors (Conservative government legislation, but more importantly the gradual closure of heavy industry and then almost all manufacturing and extractive industry, and above all by immigration on a vast scale), have become toothless, politically-correct bodies not even much good as “workers’ advice” centres.

Mass immigration has destroyed much in the UK. One victim has been effective trade unions. Big business loves mass immigration: more consumers, lower unit wage costs etc.

For the typical Labour MP, member, supporter, what I have just written is unacceptable. For those people, “Cable Street” still means something, trade unions are still a major fact, mass immigration is something not only not bad but very good, something to be (in their sickening bastard language) “celebrated”.

House of “Lords”

The tweet below does not say everything that could and should be said about the House of Lords, but it does say a lot.

The tweeter was kind enough not to overload his tweet with “inherited £300 million, or £500 million, pounds“.

In a way, though, that tweet, by that tweeter, is symptomatic of the whole of the self-describing “Left” or “socialist” side of UK politics generally (and indeed of most of what the System and “antifascists” call “the far Right”, too). The response to manifest injustice and to political chicanery is not the “aux armes, citoyens!” of French history, not the Germanenorden of German history, neither the disciplined ranks of SS and SA nor even the barricades of 1968 Paris. It is the bleat of the tweet, the bleat of people whose idea of being radical, and even edgily so, is to post a comment (being careful not to infringe the ever-more-repressive laws around what is lawful to say or not, as free speech is eroded).

This made me laugh:

The subject itself is not funny, of course:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7803721/One-200-Britons-homeless-figure-jumps-9-2016.html

Proportional Representation

Interesting to see that three-quarters of Labour supporters now back PR. The “Conservatives” see no need now that they have a large majority in the Commons, but their spell as top dogs may be both short and lead to a different outcome. Still, I detect seismic movement at last, deep under the surface. This may happen, at last, but not for the life of this Parliament.

Valete

Time to say goodbye (from this blog post). I think that I shall start a daily comments blog soon.

Update, 23 August 2020

Since I wrote the blog post above, a very good explanatory graphic was created to show where 2017 voters went in 2019:

Note that almost as many previous Labour voters failed to vote (at all) as went to all other parties combined.
