My own view of cannabis (and other illegal drugs) and the law is that, while the clarity of complete decriminalization appeals, I despise drug abusers, and would prefer either drug abuse to cease to exist, or drug abusers to cease to exist (or be eliminated).

On the other hand, the present system is not working.

I am also cognizant of the fact that societies where cannabis use is prevalent tend to fall to pieces, as Hafiz, the Persian poet, saw happening in his own country many centuries ago, and as one can see in the areas of the world where cannabis use is prevalent; Jamaica, for one.

All the —mainly British— people I knew when younger (1970s, 1980s), those who regularly smoked marijuana, dropped out of society to a greater or lesser extent.

The old Stasi, in the DDR, would have loved “Covid passports”, “track and trace” etc.

That anti-white narrative or stream of constant msm propaganda particularly affects the blacks, who as a group tend to lack logical-critical thinking skills.

Radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer (who blocked me years ago on Twitter when I exposed her ignorance on a point or two of law and procedure) seems to be turning a blind eye to the abuses carried out by the Jew-Zionist lobby. She has never said a word in support of the free speech of those attacked, and even prosecuted, at the instigation of packs of Zionist Jews such as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”. I wonder why?

Yes, Laurence Fox and his “Reclaim Party” can be put in the same bin as all the rest of the controlled opposition: Reform UK, Brexit Party, UKIP, “anti-immigration” “Conservatives”, Katie Hopkins, “Tommy Robinson”, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad”, Delingpole, Toby Young and his fake “Free Speech Union” etc etc.

…meanwhile, in England, the people amuse themselves with football, rugby, tennis or cricket matches on TV, the latest meaningless msm gossip, the latest “celebrities” one has never heard of, and they worry about their booking of controlled, mask-wearing, machine-holidays of the upcoming summer.

Is that so? If the new Alba Party challenges the SNP in most Scottish consituencies, and effectively enough so that other parties come through the middle (Conservative, LibDem, Labour), then yes. It may well be, though (and I never claim great knowledge of Scottish politics) that many voters “up there” will choose between Alba Party and SNP, and simply dump the others.

Voters who are pro-Independence but anti-SNP. I do not know whether that is so, and whether there are even any pro-Independence but anti-SNP voters.

At the moment, it seems doubtful that Alba Party will make a big impression: https://news.sky.com/story/scottish-elections-sturgeons-snp-set-for-majority-but-salmonds-alba-unlikely-to-get-single-seat-sky-news-poll-12268966.

I am guessing, but it may be that Salmond’s quite recent sex crime trial has mortally wounded him politically, even if he was formally acquitted.

Either way, it does seem that “Independence”, however nebulous a concept that is in the Scottish context where a new Scotland might still be tied into EU, IMF, World Bank, NATO etc, is gaining ground with Scottish voters. That might have big geopolitical implications.

Well, I see that John Rentoul has again been defeated by me, this week scoring only 3/10. My own score was 6/10 (I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 9 and 10).

Of course, to say that “Scotland voted SNP” in 2015, 2017, and 2019 is true only in terms of First Past The Post voting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party#House_of_Commons_2.

In 2015, the SNP captured 56 out of the 59 Scottish seats in the Commons; in 2017, 35 out of 59, and in 2019, 48 out of 59. “Scotland” therefored, supposedly “voted SNP”.

In reality though, meaning in terms of the popular vote, the SNP only scored 50%, 36.9% and 45% in those years.

Usually, when there is a successful popular movement for a country to leave a larger country or empire, there is a large popular majority for that: 90% in favour, perhaps; certainly 80%. In Scotland, any majority at all is likely to be small, maybe 55% for and 45% against.

First thoughts

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

More censorship…

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

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

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

Where will this self-flagellating nonsense end?

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

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

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

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

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

Coronavirus

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

Bristolian and other statues

In fact, I do have one thing to add.

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

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

Good news from China (for once)

Tweets seen recently on various topics

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And see here:

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

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

and

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

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

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

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

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

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

Scandal, and the country is the poorer for it.

Destroy the Great Replacement

The Camp of the Saints was written as fiction. Look now, though!

The Camp of the Saints (French: Le Camp des Saints) is a 1973 French dystopian fiction novel by Catholic author and explorer Jean Raspail.[1][2][3] A speculative fictional account, it depicts the destruction of Western civilization through Third World mass immigration to France and the West. Almost forty years after its initial publication the novel returned to the bestseller list in 2011.” [Wikipedia]

Rory Stewart

I see that Rory Stewart is trending on Twitter (not that that means much). I blogged about him over a year ago. I started off rather impressed, but (see all the updates) my view of Stewart became less and less approving the more I discovered about him. Read below about the journey on which I embarked:

Diary Blog, 27-28 February 2020

Mike Stuchbery— update

Regular readers will know that I have written previously about Mike Stuchbery and his collaborator Roanna Carleton-Taylor (aka “@WitchOfPeace” and now “@AntiFashWitch”).

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/

They started a GoFundMe in, by memory, October 2019, so that (they claimed) Stuchbery could sue Tommy Robinson (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon).

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/11/27/mike-stuchbery-and-tommy-robinson-legal-dispute/

There was supposed to be legal action launched (at latest) by January 2020. So far, nothing.

Well, here we are pretty much at the end of February. Stuchbery and “AntiFashWitch” Roanna Carleton-Taylor (and their “full legal team”, meaning a Pakistani in a back room in a North of England rustbelt town) have still not launched the threatened legal action (or even served the preliminary paperwork) against Tommy Robinson/Stephen Yaxley-Lennon.

It looks as though, as I blogged weeks and even months ago, Stuchbery, Roanna and the Pakistani have reached “peak mug”. No-one now wants to donate to their doomed lawsuit. Only £5 has been donated to the GoFundMe appeal in over a week, and over the past month or so, only £80 has come in.

Meanwhile, Stuchbery continues to travel around Germany, sending out feelers for any hospitality that might be on offer:

Though now based in Stuttgart with his “German” wife, Stuchbery is going to Munich and has been around the Bodensee (Lake Constance) this week:

Quite a feat for someone who claims to “work three jobs”…

Still, I am sure that the 689 mugs who —incredibly— have donated to his GoFundMe appeal (currently totalling £11,614), or to Stuchbery directly, will be glad that Stuchbery can enjoy life at their expense, despite the fact that there is obviously never going to be a lawsuit by him against Tommy Robinson.

nb. As explained previously in my blog posts, the above does not mean that I support Tommy Robinson either.

This blog

I am not sure quite why, but despite the brevity of today’s blog so far (I am going to combine it with tomorrow’s), my blog pages have had more visitors today than on any other day in the 3 years since I started: over 600 views (349 of this page alone), from over 300 visitors. All in about 4 hours or so, and with nearly 7 hours to run (time now is just after 1700 hrs). More than twice the usual number of views and visitors. A strange statistical anomaly.

Note

I notice that, I having been mentioned by Stuchbery on his Twitter account, all sorts of odd people and natural “followers” have started to tweet things about me, often inaccurate. Example? That I was a member of the British Movement in the 1970s. No, I never was, though I believe that I did briefly exchange a couple of not entirely friendly letters with the leader of the BM, Michael McLaughlin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_McLaughlin]. 1978, I think.

It is a characteristic of Twitter that many remoras follow each shark. Thus today the Twitter “followers” of Stuchbery support him by tweeting against me. A few examples seen:

  • a minor author (very minor) says that I feel entitled to “judge” Stuchbery because (she says) I have “a History A Level”. I suppose that that is a guess on her part (and she herself purports to “judge” me merely because a few “antifa” idiots tweet rubbish about me);
  • some idiot says that I am a “disbarred solicitor” (actually, barrister, not solicitor; and solicitors are in any case not “disbarred” but “struck off”;
  • some ugly cow tweets that I “have issues” and adds, by way of proving that assertion, that I made a typo somewhere, typing “lawter” instead of “lawyer”;
  • another one tweets that I am “far far right” (in fact, I never use the lazy terms “right” and “left”). That one also tweets, illogically, “ignore…report”! To whom will you “report” me, anyway? I am not on Twitter and my blog is hosted by WordPress, an excellent American organization wedded to the principles of freedom of expression. The woman wanting me to be both ignored and “reported” seems to be part-Danish and living in Belgium. Judgment poor…
  • I am called “a typical embittered internet nonentity” by, er, a typical Twitter nonentity called “Spex, @_Hydrofish”, who has all of 135 Twitter followers (I had 3,000 when the Jewish lobby had me expelled);
  • “@WigNatKing” asserts that I work for “TR News”, the Tommy Robinson setup. No. Not only do I not work for TR News, but have never had contact with it and do not, as such, “support” Tommy Robinson.

These people are beyond sad…Their whole day is made up of tweeting to others of similar views, while denouncing and “reporting” those with whom they disagree (or those with whom they think that they disagree) to Twitter. For such people, Twitter is terribly important. Fools, mostly.

Incidentally, Stuchbery may claim that my existence has just been “brought to his attention”, but I think not. However, he has, by mentioning my blog on his Twitter output, just increased considerably the numbers of those reading my stuff. “One human soul is a big audience”, as someone or other (St. Thomas Aquinas?) once said.

As for Stuchbery talking about defamation etc (a trait that he shares with quite a few other —mostly ignorant— persons on Twitter), he not only will not sue me (nor will he sue anyone else) in defamation, but cannot (for a number of reasons). He was ranting or bleating about suing a load of Danes, in Denmark, recently (and demanding to know names of suitable libel lawyers in that jurisdiction, despite being entirely unable to pay any retained).

Someone should write a dystopian sci-fi novel in which a malefic organization sets up something akin  to Twitter, convinces people that it is pretty much the most important thing in the world, then manages to deflect any discontent in the self-describing “aware” population to that platform.

In that non-existent novel, the “aware” or “woke” or “liberal” (and indeed “illiberal” and pro-multikulti) people then spend almost all of their time on “Twitter” or whatever, thinking that they are achieving something, showing off, virtue-signalling, not to forget denouncing “bad folk” on the platform, and (very important to those idiots) getting the controllers of the platform to expel those with whom the “aware” people disagree. Meanwhile, the real rulers and influencers carry on ruling and influencing, and the poor Twitter saps are entirely unaware of it.

MI5

Saw a 30-min doc. about the Security Service, presented by ITV’s Security correspondent, an Indian or South African Indian (I think) called something like Karroo. Irritating that supposed journalists now say things such as “Director-Generals” when they mean “Directors-General” (Laura Kuenssberg did it the other day: “Secretary of States”, when she meant “Secretaries of State”).

As to the film itself, interesting without being very enlightening. The most interesting bare fact was that MI5 has doubled its staff numbers in the past decade.

Hunted

Saw Hunted, a TV show I quite like, which involves fugitives and a hunter force. Somewhat contrived, as it would have to be to work at all, but good entertainment.

One of the fugitives had to go to Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, where I myself, aged 20-something, was supposed to be met in the market square at 0900 hrs once, about 40 years ago. Misjudging the distance and how long it would take me to get there overnight from Central London (without a car), I was there far too early, by about 0300!

I was soon found in the deserted and cold square by the friendly local police patrolman, who strolled around on his beat talking to me and telling me all about the local crime situation (there was a little crime, surprisingly— someone had tried a smash-and-grab not very long before; a few weeks before; arrested). His inspector arrived at one point, examined my “papers” (as they say in some countries) and had an equally friendly chat with me for a while before saluting and going back, as I supposed, to his police station. My people did arrive, dead on time at 0900 hrs. Moral? Early is nearly as bad as late when it comes to rendezvous.

Tom Watson

A few words about Tom Watson, who stepped down as MP [Lab., West Bromwich East 2001-2019] before the 2019 General Election. He would either have been deselected or lost the seat at that election. A Conservative presently holds the seat. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Watson_(Labour_politician).

Seems that his attempt at emulating the witchfinder-general over child sexual abuse and the subsequent (and to some extent consequent) wrongheaded witchhunt, may result in the bastard losing out on the well-paid sinecure of being a “Lord”.

My reason to dislike Watson? Not because of his “hunt the paedophile VIPs” nonsense, nor because he was an expenses freeloader (he claimed the maximum allowed every year for groceries, £5,000 p.a.). His constituents of course had no idea that MPs could even get food for free! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Watson_(Labour_politician)#Expenses

No, my main reason to dislike Watson is because he was a total doormat for the Jewish lobby (Zionist lobby, Israel lobby) in the UK.

Watson supported malicious Zionist snoop organizations like the Community Security Trust [CST], “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [CAA] and “antifa” trash such as “Hope Not Hate”.

Watson undermined Labour and Corbyn non-stop, and was a major reason why we are now lumbered with Boris-idiot posing as PM. Also, though of less importance, he actually referred to Mike Stuchbery [see above] as a “journalist” in the House of Commons, thus making a fool of himself. Watson wanted to squash Tommy Robinson, of course.

Now? Well, I expect that the Jews will find some sinecure for the bastard if his House of Lords expectations come to nothing.

Stats

End of a busy day on my blog. 415 different visitors and no less than 783 views. 32 different countries. Nearly two-thirds of the views today were of today’s Diary Blog, the rest many and various previous blog posts. Amazing what “the oxygen of publicity” can do…

Some interesting tweets seen

Another day, another demonstration

Oh, joy…little Greta Nut is speaking in Bristol today. I have already said what I think of her and those around her (and behind her):

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/09/29/greta-thunberg-system-approved-wunderkind/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/09/extinction-rebellion-greta-thunberg-cressida-dick-and-the-madness-of-protesting-crowds/

The Greta Thunberg phenomenon (public relations effort) is based primarily on hate. It emanates like a carbon emission from Greta Nut herself. It oozes from the tweets of the mainly rather stupid people who support her (I mean those who do not have the excuse of extreme youth). Here’s one:

Bitter and twisted old gammony fucks“…meaning white BRITISH people who are not under-30, who have seen this country’s decline over 40-60 years and hate both that decline and what it means in terms of socio-cultural collapse.

If you tweeted the equivalent about blacks, Pakistanis, Jews etc, you would have the police and a host of special interest groups on your tail.

Here’s another hate-filled idiot:

Oh, so it’s OK for Greta Nut to travel around the world, spouting complete nonsense, because she is making “old people” have strokes, apparently. Well, when I myself am on Mount Parnassus or wherever, I hope that I can look down on that idiot being abused in old age by the even-worse idiots no doubt to come.

I thought that this one [below] was a —not very clever— parody, but it seems not! I think that the bastard is serious!

In fact, despite all the publicity, not very many people have turned out to see and hear the mentally-disturbed Swedish autistic: the muddy and rainswept scene below was photographed about the same time that Greta Nut was arriving in the city.

About (?) 200 people. Not more.

What about this idiot?!

Now let me see…could that be because

  • David Attenborough has earned at least some respect for his erudition etc? [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Attenborough], whereas
  • Greta Thunberg is a 17 year old mentally-disturbed Swedish autistic who has no official or other qualifications in any scientific or other discipline, and no background in anything (how could she, at her age?)…

Then we have this lady:

  1. Greta Nut is scarcely a child. She is 17, albeit stunted in every way;
  2. If Greta Thunberg puts herself forward as a pathetic sort of prophetess or political leader, then she is treated as if. It goes with the territory.

Again:

A bunch of boomers“, by which the idiot above (who is “trashing the planet” every bit as much as any “boomer”, by the way) means, in reality, “I’m not responsible for anything! It’s all the fault of those older people!” Hey, now of whom does that attitude remind me? Oh, I know…

GretaThunbergHaterNut

A vast crowd“? About 500 or so, seems, maybe 1,000, but Julian Druker of ITN 5 News (yes, that’s right, an msm journalist…), seems determined to call the audience “vast”.

The assessment (below) of today’s photo-opportunity seems sensible:

Below: is that crowd over 1,000? Maybe, but not by very much, imo.

It is worth recalling that (inter alia)…

The legal profession(s)

Seems that “AntiFashWitch” (formerly “WitchOfPeace”), in tweeting about me, does not know the difference between a solicitor and a barrister…

BTW, Louise Raw knows perfectly well who I am, because she tweeted about me a few weeks ago, annoyed that I had pointed out that, in the UK, it has never been considered acceptable to use a doctorate as a title unless one is an academic, a scientist in an institute, a medical graduate, or one in holy orders (there may be one or two other minor exceptions).

A “witch”, a “doctor”, a “journalist”/”historian”, and a shared ideology of delusion…What a bunch!

Four-fifths of the population of Europe are asleep… 

Good for Jenny Tonge!

More about the Greta Thunberg event

Well, the crowd has certainly grown. Hard to estimate, and the crowd looks more numerous because of all the placards and umbrellas, but certainly in the thousands. 5,000? 10,000? Having said that, they have come from all over the UK, and even Bristol has nearly 500,000 inhabitants, so the crowd is only about 1% of the Bristol city population, or 1 in every 14,000 of the UK population, roughly. Really, it is a photo-opportunity and TV news opportunity for (those behind) Greta Thunberg.

Government policies and their consequences

Coronavirus and NHS

The NHS is in a mess for a number of reasons, but a social health service, not run as a profit-making entity, is an essential in any modern civilized society. The alternative is not good.

Mike Stuchbery’s recent tweet about me

“Antifa” cheerleader Mike Stuchbery, who labels himself “historian” and “journalist” as he travels around Germany as a kind of tourist, tweeted about me. That stimulated a far higher than normal throughput on my blog (with one hour to go, 1008 views in 2 days, so at least twice the usual number of views).

Looking at tweets about me arising from Stuchbery’s tweet, I find that only about a dozen (if that) were hostile, some neutral, a couple quite positive. Stuchbery may have done me a favour by tweeting about me. I should hate to have to be grateful to him!

Boris-idiot and Coronavirus

Saw a few minutes of Boris-idiot posing as Prime Minister tonight. Making a statement about this very serious situation of the Chinese Coronavirus. Scarcely able to stop himself smirking, obviously dying to clown or to tell a joke. Pitiful. The stupid bastard should not be where he is.

Midnight music

Update, 26 September 2020

Yet again, my predictions turn out as expected: Labour Party backstabber Tom Watson has indeed been found a sinecure (and a well-paid one, at an estimated £200,000 a year) as CEO of UK Music [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UK_Music#History], a position formerly held by another doormat for the Jewish lobby (and, like Watson, a member of Labour Friends of Israel), Michael Dugher, the former MP for Barnsley East. Dugher in turn has been (((found))) a new position, even better-paid, as Chief Executive of the Betting and Gaming Council.
