Diary Blog, 13 October 2022, with some thoughts about the latest cultural vandalism

Thought for the day

The people who, alone in the midst of the ethnic chaos which is spreading more and more, everywhere on Earth, ‘devote all their energy’ to saving from miscegenation and ‘to promoting their best racial elements,’ writes the Führer, ‘is sure of achieving mastery of the world sooner or later’”

Jewish cultural vandalism

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2022/oct/13/channel-4-show-art-trouble-hitler-painting

Channel 4 has bought a painting by Adolf Hitler and will allow a studio audience to decide whether Jimmy Carr should burn it with a flamethrower.

As part of its latest season of programmes, the TV channel has bought artworks by a range of “problematic” artists, including Pablo Picasso, as well as convicted paedophile Rolf Harris and sexual abuser Eric Gill.

A forthcoming televised debate called Art Trouble, airing later this month, will then question whether you can truly separate a work of art from its creator – before deciding which pieces to destroy with a variety of tools.

Ian Katz, Channel 4’s director of programming, confirmed that if the studio audience chose to save the painting by Hitler it would not hang in the Channel 4 boardroom but would be “appropriately” disposed of.

Katz quoted Jeremy Isaacs, the station’s founder, as saying that Channel 4 should be watched by everyone some of the time – but not everybody all the time. “I think you might add that Channel 4 should be annoying everyone some of the time, but ideally not everyone all the time,” he added.

[The Guardian].

Note the names: “Katz“, “Isaacs” (etc).

As seen above, Hitler’s art is not the only work apparently destined to be destroyed. The Jews and others involved have not only bought (not with their own money, of course) a painting by Hitler, but also works by major 20thC artists such as Picasso and Eric Gill, with the idea of getting some grinning little monkey such as Jimmy Carr to destroy them.

It is not merely a question of whether the art concerned is “great art” (even Hitler himself would not make such a claim for his paintings, all created when he was an aspiring art student before the First World War) but of the idea that someone disapproved of by the System and/or the “woke” mob should suffer a belated “cancellation” by having their art destroyed.

Personally, I would not want art created by, for example, Jews, destroyed —indeed, I sometimes post works by Levitan and others on this blog—, certainly not for that reason alone.

The joy in destruction exhibited in a show of the kind proposed is basically a celebration of destruction, and also a puerile celebration of “cancellation” etc.

Some may say that sensationalist shows of this kind are not always created and promoted by Jews. Perhaps.

This new TV show is not some example of witty or even groundbreaking iconoclasm; au contraire— a facile and rather stupid idea.

A sign of the complete decadence of the Western msm.

Not so. Interest rates will rise far higher than they now are, making buy-to-let parasitism unprofitable once rents rise to a point where renters cannot cover them.

You can see that, already, the value of residential and other property is falling.

…and the blacks, who are anyway inherently more susceptible to certain forms of mental illness (particularly schizophrenia), and who often use marijuana, are thus even more likely to be a millstone round the necks of the British people.

Incidentally, that Jo Phillips person, seen debating with Hitchens, is pretty typical of the sort of middle-class, semi-Establishment, politically-correct drones that have led the UK down the tubes since the 1970s: “anti-racist”, pro-immigration, “refugees welcome”, pro-cannabis, anti-national, pro-EU etc.

Embedded in the msm (former LBC radio producer, former political spin doctor etc), and affluent enough not to have to live with, or near, the consequences of mass immigration, migration-invasion, drug abuse etc: see https://www.bitebackpublishing.com/authors/jo-phillips; https://uk.linkedin.com/in/jo-phillips-1136ba38.

Blair is a tool of the powers of Evil in this world. As to whether he himself is aware of it, or to what extent, that is an open question.

Russia can still win strategically. Not only vis a vis the Kiev regime, but as against the NWO.

If Western and Central Europe will only work with Russia, as should have happened after the collapse of the Soviet Union, then our energy security will not be an issue; neither will our general economic and/or military security be a problem.

Labour is at root not very different in policy terms from the misnamed “Conservatives”, not in big picture terms: Ukraine, “Covid”, (anti-) free speech, (pro-) immigration, though of course there are nuances. The precipitous fall in Con fortunes is really just because it is so very obvious that Liz Truss, woolly-head Kwarteng, James Cleverly, Therese Coffey, Suella Braverman etc are not so much the “A” team, but the “Z” team. Dregs of the dregs, who are simply not at the level where they can function properly. They simply have not the competence or capacity to be at Cabinet level, and the public has noticed.

Of course, the longer that a general election is avoided, the more it looks as if Liz Truss is afraid of one…

Having said that, it may be that the Labour lead will be eroded, but it is hard to see how, at present.

Interesting column by Andrew Neil

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-11040599/ANDREW-NEIL-EU-thats-staring-abyss.html

Those who think the threat of Right-wing nativist-nationalist populists with a penchant for the Kremlin is over in Europe have another thing coming. Inflation can do strange, unpleasant things to democratic policies — and inflation has only started to bite.”

Just wait til Putin really squeezes the gas supplies. Moscow’s exports of gas account for only 2 per cent of Russia’s GDP. The Kremlin’s coffers are already brimming with dosh from soaring oil and gas prices, from which oil and gas producers, including Russia, have benefited.

Despite sanctions, the rouble is at an eight-year high.”

[Andrew Neil, Daily Mail]

Quite. Anti-Russia sanctions have hit hard…the EU and UK, that is. Russia has not been seriously impacted. In the old proverb, “don’t cut off your own nose to spite your face“.

We are “led” by complete idiots, many of whom are also self-interested fraudsters. Boris-idiot is only one example. Unmerited prominence.

As Putin looks with contempt at the weak mediocrities in charge on both sides of the Atlantic, no wonder he thinks he just has to bide his time and all sorts of things will fall into his lap.

[Andrew Neil, Daily Mail].

It is not a matter of Europe falling into Putin’s power, but a realignment, strategically, meaning Europe, including the UK, coming to a closer accommodation (“collaboration”, if you like) with a Russia which is nothing like the old Soviet Union. We have much to offer each other.

The post-1941 Atlantic alliance, America dominating Europe, has had its day. From our European perspective, it has nothing to offer us now except NWO wars, cultural trash, and a one-sided exploitative relationship seen in politics, law, and trade.

In the end, “the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].

In the US, as in the UK, the political system is failing, and is failing mainly because it is starting to be unable provide the people with the satisfaction of their justified needs.

When the people, or enough of them, wake up to that, revolutionary change will happen, if not by peaceful evolution, then by forceful revolution.

…and look at the result— a withered arm. Does that idiot ever think “what have I done with the past 45 years of my life?“, or is he too mad and/or stupid?

Amar Bharati left the world stunned after he was pictured with his arm raised strongly holding a stance with his fist in the 1970s.

He was a married man with three children, who worked in a bank, but in 1973 he decided to ditch his modest life in the name of world peace.

He decided to dedicate himself to a Hindu deity called Shiva, and in a bid to show his devotion he came up with the idea to lift his arm and to keep it positioned that way.

Incredible film, but that would have been against the law in the UK even then, if the child was really working. Looking at the buildings, and the tram shown, I think that the footage was shot, probably, either in Poland or Czechoslovakia.

Jeremy Corbyn was grotesquely misrepresented by a hostile and unfair media.”

Even Peter Oborne cannot quite bring himself to say the unvarnished truth, which is that “Jeremy Corbyn was grotesquely misrepresented by a hostile and unfair media composed mainly of a pack of Zionist Jews, together with those non-Jew mass media journalist drones they have either bought or intimidated (by loss of career, money etc)”…

…and the great British newspaper-reading and TV-watching public took it in like mother’s milk:

It was a huge Israeli/”British Jewry” operation, carried out over years. Israeli Intelligence making use of, inter alia, the Zionist Jews so prominent in UK politics, law, business and mass media.

It worked. Corbyn was demonized and so “lost” the 2017 and 2019 elections, though actually Labour did fairly well at the 2017 one, far better than (yes, inevitably) the newspapers and TV made out.

By 2019, though, Corbyn-Labour had been thoroughly trashed. Not only over his (in fact quite limited) “anti-Semitism” (which most British people could not care less about anyway until or unless brainwashed by the msm), but more pertinently over Corbyn’s clunky old-style socialism (in fact, 1970s/1980s pseudo-socialism mixed with multikulti “identity politics”), his links with various overseas movements, especially Palestinian, and his sheer lack of nous.

Not all of the coverage was untruthful. Corbyn was a political deadhead, really: very poor educational background, almost no work background at all, and no real ideas about anything at all. Even his wives say that (like Boris-idiot) Corbyn rarely if ever reads a book.

What sank Corbyn, though, was the sheer unrelenting volume of the abuse or criticism. That eventually penetrated into enough thick skulls (the voters, in short).

I do not much regret Corbyn not having become Prime Minister of the UK. He would have been a rotten PM, perhaps as hopeless as Boris-idiot. Surrounded by thick black women, without much moral integrity, and with few ideas (no worse than “Boris”-idiot, though), Corbyn deserved to be binned.

As to Corbyn’s policy on immigration…

…yet are the so-called “Conservatives” any better? Much hard talk, much msm noise, but no action at all except the pathetic Rwanda policy.

Meanwhile, the navy, “Border Farce” and RNLI are ferrying 1,000 migrant-invaders daily across the Channel, and that figure is dwarfed by the huge waves of “legal” migration into the UK.

On immigration, it might be said that the only difference between Corbyn and the likes of “Boris”-idiot, Liz Truss, Sunak, Priti Patel etc is that Corbyn was actually honest about wanting more immigration to flood Britain.

Underwhelming drama

Saw what I think was the second episode of a new detective-type drama on ITV, Murder in Provence.

Starring Roger Allam, the actor who was Detective Chief Inspector Thursday in Endeavour, the show somehow misses the mark. Allam was perfectly cast in Endeavour, but rather miscast in Murder in Provence as a French juge d’instruction (“examining magistrate”, in the usual translation).

I should say that others in the drama were also not quite right, somehow.

The drama was filmed in Provence, and some care has evidently been taken as to locations etc, but the acting and particularly the dialogue just seemed wooden much of the time, and the plot was rather thin.

Some of the characters were cardboard cutouts: the ruthless “Russian oligarch”, with his yacht and on-call sniper, in particular.

Another so-typical contemporary British TV drama absurdity was that about half the characters were blacks. We all know how Europe and, indeed, France —as well as the UK— have been flooded by the continuing waves of non-white immigration, but actual blacks (Africans, West Indians) are only about 5% (if that) of the UK population, and in France also somewhere around 5%. Not 50%. Particularly on the Cote d’Azur, though I admit that that is not a region of France that I know from personal experience.

I cannot really say that I found even one of the Murder in Provence characters plausible, with the exception of a vineyard domain owner who was a minor character (and I lived in another part of France for about 4 years).

Not one that I shall be seeing in the future.

As I first blogged years ago, the greatest political fraudster and mountebank seen in Britain since Horatio Bottomley [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horatio_Bottomley].

A Jew-Zionist-ruled “failed state”; hardly a state at all. 30+ years of corruption, exploitation and completely shambolic misgovernment.

Zelensky himself has a USD $40M house in Florida. Not bad for a cheap comic entertainer who has only posed as President of Ukraine for 3 years.

Incredibly, that woman seems to be a “lead” teacher of English, teaching pupils aged 11-14; and she calls a well-known journalist “an arsehole” on public Twitter. Standards have fallen through the floor in this country.

England has, truly, fallen…

Well, I suppose that she had better open another bottle of wine (presumably to drink alone)…Admittedly a speculative view, but one based on seen reality (in a number of other cases).

Channel 4 Dispatches/”Hope not Hate” film

I understand that the basically Jewish “antifascist” org, misnamed “Hope not Hate” recently joined with Channel 4 Dispatches [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dispatches_(TV_programme)] to make a filmed report on Patriotic Alternative: see below

I did not see the report. In the past I have seen several such “exposures” of the social-national side of British politics, both on TV and in the Press (“Lugenpresse”/”Judenpresse”), starting in the 1970s. Such reports have been on various groups or individuals: National Front, League of St. George, British Movement, British National Party, the London Forum etc. Such reports tend to be much of a muchness.

A few years ago, I think in 2017 or 2018, the Jewish “antifascist” “Hope not Hate” crowd cobbled together a similar film about the London Forum. I said at the time that it would sink without trace. It did. I believe that it was shown on late-night TV (again on Channel 4, and with an audience of two men and a dog) late at night, and later also broadcast in Belgium or the Netherlands and (I think) Sweden.

The Jew-Zionist-controlled “antifascist” cabals make a shrill noise about such “exposes” every time, briefly, before the films disappear down a black hole.

How big is the Channel 4 Dispatches audience? I cannot say, exactly. Not large, anyway.

I have just seen a review of said Dispatches report, written by a UKIP activist (apparently they still exist, though only seen rarely, like a coelacanth https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coelacanth.)

Embarrassed” seems a mild term…

Just another virtue-signalling hypocrite who should be punished.

The presenter should have opposed “Femi” because he is anti-white-European, not because he is “racist” (whether he is or not).

The sickness in our society comes out, inter alia, in the constant pushing onto TV and radio of this useless “Femi” person. He is as thick as two short planks, for a start, and is only on the msm because the System is desperate to find blacks who can string more than a few words together. An eternal student type, who fronted a failed, EU-funded, anti-Brexit campaign for a year, several years ago now (around 2015), and now resides in the attic of his affluent Nigerian parents’ house (they being NHS doctors). At the age of 32-33, that is his entire CV, or 99% of it.

The “Femi” individual has nothing to contribute to this or any other European country. See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole (yes, that waste of space has a Wikipedia entry…).

Why are there no British groups or organizations doing that or something like that, for struggling British families? Or are there, but not publicized?

Add “Femi” to the list (in an ideal world…).

Channel 4 “wokester”, undercover, in other words a spy, gets taught a lesson when “antifa” thugs ambush him and a couple of British nationalists (on whom he is spying). In the USA, the “antifa” swine would just be shot down, of course…

It occurs to me that if (as I am told) one of the Channel 4 (or other) producers tipped off the “antifa” idiots, and so (by that deliberate and/or negligent act) caused the undercover reporter/spy to be injured, then said spy might have a case in negligence against the said producer and/or his/her employer… What fun.

Arguably typical of many of the London msm; hugely well-paid (overpaid), hugely politically-correct. He may have a few redeeming features. At least he reported from Gaza during one of the Israeli bloodbaths.

I myself saw the Channel 4 newsroom at the ITN centre (it moved to a different address later) a couple of times, but that was in late 1984, about 6 years before Jon Snow became news anchor. When I was there (as a mere visitor, nothing to do with any particular story), the anchorman was Peter Sissons, now deceased [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Sissons].

I recall how different Sissons looked, compared to his on-screen persona, when seated at his desk preparing for the broadcast (I think he was on air at 1900 hrs, about 20 mins after I first saw him). Rather, if not very, fat in body, and rather disagreeable-looking, though the latter may have been simply Sissons concentrating hard on his upcoming appearance. I had no reason to speak to him, and did not.

Interesting to see a place like that. There was a feeling (not quite corresponding to reality, perhaps) of being at the hub of world events. Apart from the feeling of suppressed urgency just before the news was broadcast (the actual studio was somewhere else nearby), there was one girl, a few yards away, on the telephone to the Defence Minister of Nicaragua, another calling some VIP in Washington and, where I was sitting on my first visit, a TV with a very clear feed from the Soviet evening news from Moscow (today, that would be nothing, and a private person can probably get that via satellite TV, but back then it was novel to see).

I was just looking at Snow’s underwhelming academic and pre-Channel 4 background: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Snow_(journalist).

Incredibly, Snow was paid, at one time, over £1.25M a year: https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/life/1221226/Jon-Snow-channel-4-net-worth; since then a slightly more modest £1M a year….

What on Earth justifies that kind of pay? I see that Peter Sissons had, apart from his home in Kent, a holiday home on Barbados, according to Wikipedia. There is a general problem with ludicrously high pay (for sometimes rather mediocre people —not referring to Sissons or even Snow specifically—) in the UK msm.

I still, even now, after 2-3 years of misgovernment, see msm stories saying things such as “has Boris abandoned his libertarian principles?” as if he actually had principles and/or real ideas —“libertarian” or otherwise— to start with.

Johnson is (or was, before it became obvious even to most of “the moronic masses” that he is utterly unfit for any public office) the ideal NWO/ZOG figurehead: free of any deeply-held beliefs, faith, ideas or principles, amoral, completely compromised in his private life, a deracinated part-Jew/part-Levantine, rootless (not only ethnically-mixed but also born in New York, brought up in USA and Belgium until at Eton, an United States passport-holder until a few years ago), and hungry for money too. The ideal controlled and controllable puppet.

The msm campaign to push blacks in everything intensifies. Sky and Channel 4 now has “Black History Month“, despite the fact that “black history”, when set against the rich real history of both Europe and Asia (not to mention the pre-Columbian Americas), is at best peropheral.

I happened to be in Waitrose recently, and glanced at the magazines on sale there. There was one entitled Exploring History, which featured ancient Egypt. The headline? “Explore Africa’s iconic civilization“. Africa? Geographically, yes, but culturally, ethnically, racially, no. Again, there is a deliberate attempt, and has been for about 20-30 years, to call the North African countries, the countries north of the Sahara, simply “African”, when in most respects there is a fairly sharp dividing line between the countries and cultures of North Africa and those of “black Africa” south of the Sahara.

As a matter of fact, when scientists conducted DNA tests on the remains of Tutankhamun and others, it was discovered that their DNA was fairly similar to that of modern Europeans, speaking in broad terms; however, those ancient Egyptians had little DNA in common with the Egyptians of the present day.

If one spends time in Egypt, especially away from the cloistered tourist hotels, it becomes very obvious very soon that the modern Egyptians have little in common with their great ancestors…

Look at any police-connected Twitter accounts: all “black this, black that”. Propaganda from what is now a State/System militia.

If only the best white British people really lived up to that, we the people would be defended, our enemies exterminated, and a decent future secured.

Muslims and Jews in Europe

Time to restate my view:

The Muslims in Europe and the Jews in Europe (as groups, not individuals) differ in their aims: the one group wishes all Europe to come to Islam; the other (as a “tribal” or ethnocentric religion) has no such aim, but wishes to control Europe for reasons of group profit and benefit.

Coronavirus: the official scare campaign continues

The goalposts are being moved: the official death toll in the UK from the virus is going to increase today or tomorrow, not because more people are dying but because if any link with the virus can be shown, that death will be added to the “Coronavirus” total!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8170065/UKs-coronavirus-death-toll-HIGHER-official-figures.html

But in better news Britain’s coronavirus outbreak is ‘starting to slow’ as rate of increase in hospital admissions ‘eases’, says government expert Neil Ferguson” [Daily Mail]

Exactly.

The weather is forecast to get wetter in Britain, possibly with over 80% humidity by next week. That will help, if it happens, because the virus cannot live in humidity above 81%, and humidity has been well below that, around 50% or 60%, for weeks now.

Meanwhile, the poundland KGB carries on

I see that I was not alone when I blogged about the truly absurd over-reaction of some police during the “lockdown”. Now many msm reports, as well as those on Twitter, show police going well beyond both commonsense and their own powers (even beyond the new powers granted to them). Leading QCs and others have joined in. Good.

As I have blogged previously, the incompetent Derbyshire Police, already notorious for their persecution of satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz (and being near the bottom of league tables for performance targets), have been, yet again, behaving like a poundland KGB:

One of Britain’s most decorated judges, Lord Sumption, who retired from the Supreme Court in 2018, also criticised Derbyshire Police for having ‘shamed our policing traditions’ after the force chased walkers with drones.

He added: ‘The tradition of policing in this country is that policemen are citizens in uniform, they are not members of a disciplined hierarchy operating just at the Government’s command.

Yet in some parts of the country the police have been trying to stop people from doing things like travelling to take exercise in the open country which are not contrary to the regulations simply because ministers have said that they would prefer us not to.

The police have no power to enforce ministers’ preferences but only legal regulations which don’t go anything like as far as the Government’s guidance.

‘I have to say that the behaviour of Derbyshire Police in trying to shame people in using their undoubted right to travel to take exercise in the country and wrecking beauty spots in the fells so people don’t want to go there is frankly disgraceful.

This is what a police state is like. It’s a state in which the Government can issue orders or express preferences with no legal authority and the police will enforce ministers’ wishes.'”

Greedy farmer

Ha ha! Someone called Tom Bradshaw, Vice-President of the National Farmers’ Union, heard on BBC Radio 4 Farming Today. Wants people, furloughed because of Coronavirus, to pick fruit and vegetables for low pay or for free, as some kind of civic duty! I can’t get over British farmers! When it suits them, they are brave independent farming business people who should be free to do as they wish; but at other times, they want people to volunteer to work for little or nothing, want to be featherbedded and subsidized and given money by government (taxpayers) just because they own land, or because they farm, or because their families have had that lifestyle for XYZ years…

Can this Toytown police state last?

How long will the British public tolerate this incipient police state?

British people are generally well-behaved and willing to comply with the occasional demands of police and other authorities. Also, in the present “crisis”, the UK public has shown that it wants to help society (look at the huge number who have volunteered). There is the additional point that many people have been, with reason, afraid of getting this latest virus from China. The whipped-up campaign by the authorities has certainly put millions in fear for their lives, though in fact the UK death toll at present works out as being only about 20 people per million population [1 April update: now 26 cases per million, but that may be because the criteria for the *statistics* have changed].

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

In other words, your chance of getting Coronavirus and also even simply knowing that you have it (because most infected people have either no, or only very mild, symptoms) is actually rather small. The chance that you will be seriously affected and have to stay in hospital is very small, about 3,000 to 1. The chance that you will die from it (in the UK) is about 1 chance in 50,000.

If this “house arrest of the whole population” goes on for “very long”, meaning, I think, more than a fw weeks, there will be a gradual rebellion against it unless the level of fear can be maintained or increased. Maybe that is why the msm is being told now that a different method of counting “Coronavirus” deaths is to be used, resulting in a different (higher) daily figure.

You can’t take it with you

I watched a Channel 4 documentary yesterday evening. Called something such as Putin— KGB Spy, something similar to that, anyway. Pretty dull and predictable. Channel 4 is a waste of government money (I had no idea until fairly recently that Ch4 is subsidized out of government funds).

The documentary rehashed the cases of Litvinenko and Politkovskaya as part of presenting a very poor and sketchy biog of Putin. It also examined the cases of Berezovsky and other Jew “oligarchs” in Russia.

At one point I did not know whether to laugh or scowl: on trial, the (half-) Jew corporate bandit Khodorkovsky shouted out about how Putin and the Russian state were acting like robbers, seizing his property. Impudent Jew rascal! He only had billions because he and the other Jew “oligarchs” had stolen the Russian economy in the 1990s from the Russian people, in blatant and scarcely-concealed theft.

Berezovsky, of course, has gone up the chimney now.

Life is boring without money, but merely having a lot does not of itself bring happiness.

That documentary, though, said a lot about where Channel 4 now is. It is stale, dull, predictable.

Emily Thornberry

Mercifully, I missed most of a TV interview on either Sky News or BBC TV News this morning. Just caught the last 20 or so seconds, in which this joke-“socialist” pig-in-clover (who with her half-Jew husband, a High Court judge, owns 8 buy-to-let properties) gave out a few platitudes about the “necessity” for the Coronavirus “lockdown” (combined with a few fence-sitting remarks about the police doing a good job etc). She, and other pseudo-socialist parasites like her, are a major reason why Labour is in terminal decline now.

Labour insolvency?

As is known, the Jew-Zionist element is actively trying to make the Labour Party insolvent (the campaign started when Corbyn was still, actively, Leader):

The term “bankruptcy” (which, stricto sensu, applies only to individuals and partnerships) just shows that not all tweeters are lawyers!

Still, the Labour Party may become insolvent. The Jews are talking about setting up a new “Labour” party under their control or influence. Maybe they should drop the “Labour” label forever and just call their new party something else. The Bund? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Jewish_Labour_Bund

Coronavirus oddity

I notice that the UK has had about twice the number of confirmed cases as has had Turkey, but the death toll in the UK in absolute terms is about 9x more: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

In other words, the death rate from Coronavirus in the UK is about 4x or so higher than that in Turkey.

Reason(s)? I suppose that the main one is likely to be that Turkey is demographically a younger country than the UK. Persons under 14 make up a quarter of the population (in the UK 18%) and persons over 65 only 7% (in the UK, 16%):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey#Demographics

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom#Demographics

Coronavirus is (and, yes, I know that there are exceptions) basically an old person’s condition and fatal Coronavirus a very old person’s condition.

Idiotic magistrate

A defendant who is obviously a minor public nuisance with a mental problem. The penalty for his minor crime (minor unless you are an hysteric) was, however, excessive, in my view (read the report below). Also, the parting shot by the Chairman of the lay bench betrayed a wrong attitude:

Mackie, who receives £50 per week in benefits, was fined £500 and ordered to pay £135 costs. He agreed to pay off the fine at £5 per week. “I hope that really hurts you,” said the chair of the bench.” [Daily Mirror]

Labour’s terminal decline continues

Further to my comment about pig-in-clover “Labour” careerist Emily Thornberry, above, I have just seen this:

It looks as though most people would not vote Labour even if it were the only party standing!

I myself, of course, have never been a supporter of any of the System parties. Objectively, the Jews really did a job on Labour as soon as relatively anti-Zionist Jeremy Corbyn took the reins of leadership in 2015. That Jewish campaign was instrumental in Labour’s defeat in the 2019 General Election.

Labour might even have won, to the extent of at least achieving a plurality of Commons seats, had that Jewish campaign not been carried on in the msm (and social media, but the TV and Press were more important). The Jews from the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake “charity” even boasted about it, openly:

Now the Jews want blood from Labour and have made a complaint to the police-state Equality and Human Rights Commission.

Former MP Ruth Smeeth (also formerly a “strictly protected” “confidential contact” of the US Embassy in London and official of Israeli propagada outfit BICOM).

The BNP, in 2010, was the last political party to be “investigated” by the EHRC. Such matters cost parties a great deal of money, which is why the Jews do it, to bleed parties dry.

The Jewish campaign against Labour has had a number of results. One is that we now have a government which is scarcely even British, and is mindblowingly incompetent, but is, perhaps because of that, willing to take bold measures, “going in where the angels fear to tread”. The result of that is that Labour, disunited, deflated, effectively leaderless, has become a total irrelevance, unable even to pretend to oppose the Government.

Look at that poll (above). Conservative Party– 54%. 54%! When was any party that high in the polls? I looked it up. It was in June 1997, a month after the General Election of that year, the party was Labour and the figure was 62%! Sic transit gloria mundi…

In fact, the previous high was in April 1990. Labour again, on 56%. I was unable to access all the figures for previous decades, but the Conservative-led National Government achieved 54% in 1939, just before the start of the disastrous war against the German Reich.

I am now 63. I was born in 1956. I have been interested in politics since 1966 and in UK party politics intermittently since then and particularly since the early 1970s.

I do not think that, even in the days of Michael Foot, that ghastly little hypocrite, Labour has ever been quite so irrelevant, sidelined and without influence as it now is.

The Conservatives continue to ride high, not from their own merit, but because there is no real political opposition to them now. Not from Labour, even less from the LibDems, who will disappear very soon. A social-national party must emerge in England and Wales. It may not get the support of 54% of the people prior to its victory, but it might get 34% or 24% and, in a situation of continuing crisis, that might be enough to seize power, if it is a tightly-controlled vanguard.

The late and unlamented Leon Brittan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Brittan]? in fact, not so.

Interesting to note the strong tribal identity, though.

Evening foray

Went to Waitrose. Arrived an hour before close and read in the car for a while. Not many shoppers, but I noticed that every single one leaving the store had a pack of loo paper! Presumably, they are now limited to one pack.

Inside, the Handmaid’s Tale militia (Waitrose marshals), in their black clothing and woollen hats and scarves etc, were there but not so obvious as before. I did not notice whether the loo paper shelves were still being stripped (not when I last attended, 2 days ago), but dried pasta was mainly gone (obviously not for immediate use, because the fresh stuff was there in quantity). Kitchen roll plentiful, but limited to one pack per shopper; eggs also limited to one pack per shopper, the shelves largely but not entirely empty. The ones left were mostly the more expensive ones, such as Clarence Court Cotswold Old Legbar eggs. Everything else (except flour) seemed to be in good supply.

On leaving Waitrose’s precincts, I noticed that a police transit-type van was cruising around. There is a general atmosphere of slight unease now.

A final thought. Driving back to my humble home, I noticed again that there were more birds about or at least crossing my path. I had to brake, even at slow speeds, a couple of times. The increase in visibility of birds on or around roads was especially noticeable in semi-rural and suburbanized roads (as compared to rural lanes). In a way, a hopeful sign. Nature returns as humans pull back or disappear.

Jack Sen Meets a Jewish Media Person

Channel 4 Film: Sleeping with the Far Right

I interrupted writing a longer article to write this brief piece. I am in fact unsure whether it is worth the effort, but I should regret not saying something about this typical piece of propaganda presented as documentary film.

I made the mistake of watching what passed for a documentary, presented by Alice Levine, a Jewish woman who has apparently (I had not previously heard of her) presented a number of TV and radio shows. Wikipedia says this about her:

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

I wasted an hour watching this. In the film, London-based Jewish media person Alice Levine spent a week, or at least a few days, living at the house of Jack Sen, a British nationalist activist. The house is in Southport, Lancashire.

I do not know Jack Sen, though I have heard of him. I believe that we exchanged a couple of tweets several years ago, when I still had a Twitter account. He stood as UKIP candidate in West Lancashire in 2015 and, despite being disowned by UKIP after he tweeted something of a critical nature to then Labour Party MP for Liverpool Wavertree, the Zionist Jewess Luciana Berger, achieved an honourable 6,058 votes (12.2%), and thus retained his deposit.

I have to say that I myself would never invite a Jewish (or even non-Jewish) media person into my home, let alone agree to that person staying for days. I can only assume that either Jack Sen is one of those who thinks that “no publicity is bad publicity”, or he received a fee for his participation. I cannot imagine any other motivation.

The film introduced Jack Sen’s mother (also resident there) and his charming Ukrainian wife and little daughter.

The Alice Levine person, when in bed in the room she was allocated, seemed to wear several layers of clothing. Whether that was because the house was cold, or because she did not want Sen to take “sleeping with the far right” too literally, must remain a puzzle!

There was, of course, no attempt to let Jack Sen properly explain his socio-political outlook. One of the problems with this kind of show, for the subject (“victim”), is that not only does the interviewee not know what will be raised by the interviewer, but also what will be left out of the finished product.

I found Jack Sen to be somewhat eccentric, though that was obviously deliberately amplified by the programme-makers. This was, after all, a week compressed into an hour. He seems to be a basically decent person, to my mind, at least on the personal level. I am unwilling to speculate that he is not. “The soul of another is a dark wood” (Russian proverb), in the end. I am aware that many distrust him and his motives, but I cannot comment either way.

At one point, Alice Levine “discovers” from Sen’s mother (I would bet that her researchers discovered the fact well before she ever arrived at Sen’s house) that his original name was Dilip Sengupta, Sen’s father having been either Indian or half-Indian, a fact mentioned by Sen himself to Ms. Levine. The mention of the name(s) to Sen made him angry. He did not present himself well at that point. He allowed the Jewess to provoke him. Later, she tried to give the impression that she was afraid of Sen, which I very much doubt was the case.

It was obvious that Alice Levine had no idea of life outside her comfortable careerist bubble. She went from a comfortable childhood in Nottinghamshire to the University of Leeds and straight into TV and radio. Jack Sen’s background (not much explored in the film) has obviously been more difficult.

Sen did not (out of politeness, or hospitality?) put Alice Levine on the spot about her Jewish origins, beliefs, attitudes etc. Having said that, I was surprised that she was offered pork by Jack Sen (even I found that rather insensitive!) and even more surprised that she apparently ate it.

At any rate, Alice Levine obviously lives in a bubble where everyone thinks and feels much as she does. In a word, biased. She evidently found it challenging even to think that many do not share her multikulti views. She was unwilling to be challenged on Skype or similar by Nick Griffin.

I had to laugh at it all. If Alice Levine thinks Jack Sen “extreme”, what would she make of me, I wonder?

This attempt to copy Louis Theroux was a waste of time, unenlightening. It is the sort of “documentary” that taxpayer-subsidized Channel 4 does. Dull, really.

Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Darcus Howe and the MSM: Cultural Musings

Introduction

The deaths of two people came to notice particularly in the past week. One person had been a significant cultural influence in the Soviet Union, was world-famous, is still oft-quoted. The other was a West Indian immigrant to the UK, best known for his support for black rioters, gangster criminals and others, as well as his assault on British cultural norms.

The first was Yevgeny Yevtushenko [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yevgeny_Yevtushenko] about whom The Guardian newspaper published this by way of obituary: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/apr/02/yevgeny-yevtushenko-obituary.

The second was one Darcus Howe: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darcus_Howe], about whom the Guardian said this: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/02/darcus-howe-writer-broadcaster-and-civil-rights-campaigner-dies-aged-74.

It can surely be seen that even the Guardian was unable to make out Darcus Howe as being a greater cultural figure or a more positive one than Yevtushenko.

Comment and Personal Musing

I knew neither of the two recently deceased. I had heard of Yevtushenko vaguely, en passant, as a child and teenager, about the poet who was able to fill stadia in Russia with fans listening to his declamations. Black and white pictures from Life magazine and books. Later, in my twenties, I knew a few people who had been well-acquainted with Yevtushenko in Moscow. I even met his third wife on a couple of occasions during that time and once swam with her and her children (Yevtushenko’s) in a semi-private wooded beach area in some expensive part of Bournemouth, on England’s southern coast.

I never met Yevtushenko himself, though I heard plenty about him. His private life was messy, not always commendable, but that is hardly unusual in the biographies of poets and artistic people generally. One cannot judge a poet primarily by his private life (think of Byron etc). At a distance, he seemed to me to be a Soviet cultural windvane, able to change direction not so much with the prevailing wind but at the moment before it changed. Thus Yevtushenko was seen by some , e.g. Irina Ratushinskaya [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irina_Ratushinskaya] as an “official poet”, with all the moral compromise and material benefits which that term implied; by others, as a brave and anti-official –even a little bit anti-Soviet– quasi-dissident.

Certainly Yevtushenko was willing to argue even with such as Khrushchev on occasion. He was lucky, perhaps, to have been born in 1932 and not 1922 or 1912. He escaped Stalinism to a large extent. Also, he was born and mainly brought up in Siberia, where (ironically) the Stalinist pressure was slightly less. Having said that, he lived in Moscow from age 18, studied there, was never in political trouble. I once heard privately that his mother had been an informant (“secret co-worker”) for the KGB and went weekly to an address not far from the Lubyanka to receive her stipend, signing for it on a list which had all the other names blanked out via a kind of stencil. Perhaps. That would not imply, however, that Yevtushenko himself was implicated with such work (and as I heard it, his mother only went through the motions anyway, giving little but avoiding conflict).

Certainly, Yevtushenko lived rather well by Soviet and indeed Western material standards. Robert Conquest [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Conquest] described that as “well-rewarded collaboration”. By the 1970s, if not before, he had a house or “dacha” at Peredelkino [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peredelkino] with (I believe I was told), 4 or maybe 5 bedrooms –unheard of luxury in the Soviet Union for all but the highest-regarded citizens. He also had an apartment near the Kremlin with no less than (from memory) 14 rooms (a friend of mine was offered the chance to stay there for a week while it was unoccupied; she returned to London gushing about how wonderful it was and how she had not realized that people in the Soviet Union lived like that!); the apartment had been occupied at one time, I was told, by Beria [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavrentiy_Beria] though Beria did have a mansion in Moscow, perhaps in addition. Yevtushenko also had a house on the Black Sea, situated, I believe, at Yalta.

Yevtushenko is now known for several “soundbites”, in today’s terminology, as much as for his poems: “in Russia, a poet is more than a poet”; and the 1962 lines usually slightly changed to (and improved?) “double and triple the guard on Stalin’s tomb, lest he return….and with him, the past” [http://osaarchivum.org/files/holdings/300/8/3/text/60-4-47.shtml].

Whatever one’s view of Yevtushenko, there is no doubt that he was a significant cultural figure, who personified the changes in the Soviet Union from Stalin’s rule, through the Thaw of the 1950s and early 1960s and on to the retrenchment which led up to Gorbachev, corrupt laxity and then complete collapse. Yevtushenko himself spent his later years living partly in the USA, paid generously by the University of Tulsa (Oklahoma) and the City University of New York (CUNY). A weathervane to the last.

As to Darcus Howe, I know little of him beyond a few items recently read, though I do recall that rather menacing figure on “British” TV from time to time, always promoting the idea that the blacks in the UK had been and were oppressed by white British people and culture.

I cannot imagine that Howe ever contributed much to the UK, though others, in the mainstream media especially, seem to think otherwise. On Twitter, the death of Yevtushenko was like an express train at night, flashing quickly through a country station (Zima Junction?) without stopping. Darcus Howe’s death was trending for far longer. The mainstream TV and radio almost ignored Yevtushenko’s death (and life), while eulogizing about the life of the West Indian rioter and troublemaker. Channel 4, the tax-subsidized “independent” channel, was especially loud in its praises.

Where the msm did notice Yevtushenko’s death, the reports concentrated mainly on his poem “Babi Yar”, about the death of Jews in the Ukraine during the war with Germany. Typical.

The cultural sickness of the West can be seen in the juxtaposition of the two recent deaths and how they have been treated. The time must come when real merit is respected, when people are able to properly discriminate between what is worthwhile and what is not. Most of the existing cultural organizations and faces must be removed.
