Greta Nut commentary
Interesting discussion and interview with “cancelled” (msm-censored) historian, David Starkey.
I had better not say what I think of Greta Thunberg, or what might happen in an ideal world. We do not have freedom of expression any more in the UK. I have blogged about her, though, including this from two years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/29/greta-thunberg-system-approved-wunderkind/.
If Greta Thunberg did not exist, it would be necessary for the international conspiracy to invent her. Oh, no, wait…
Another interesting video
Tweets seen today
I did not know that that trial had started; if it has concluded, I have seen no report of it. As of today, she is still tweeting:
I hope that the Welsh teaching contingent teach the children of Wales how much better Africa was when Europeans ruled most of it. Especially between 1945 and until European colonies ceased to exist in the 1960s and 1970s. I doubt that that will be taught, though…
Claudia Webbe is ignorant, and as thick as two short planks.
The voters of Leicester East have been unfortunate. First the corrupt and sleazy Indian, Keith Vaz, and now this thick waste of space. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leicester_East_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s.
If people never speak, they cannot spread “subversive” ideas such as free speech, freedom of expression, or the idea that Europe would be far better without (((certain elements))).
I rather like the tweets of @EternalEnglish. I urge any readers with Twitter accounts to follow that account while they can, before (((the usual suspects))) have it expunged. I might not agree with all of what he says, but, adapting the lyrics of “Meatloaf”, “nine out of ten ain’t bad”.
When I was a barrister practising from chambers in Exeter (2002-2008), I had contact with some of the Devon (and East Cornwall) hunting/shooting country set. Not necessarily “bad people”, but not particularly “good” either. Overall, just rather backward in terms of attitude, I should say.
(Q: is “laughter the best medicine”?)
I am no medic, but there has been, from the start, something not right about the whole System narrative around the Covid-19 “panicdemic”.
First of all, in early 2020, we were told that this was something almost akin to the 1970s British TV series, Survivors (no relation to the funny Alison Chabloz banned song of the same name): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivors_(1975_TV_series); incidentally, writing this, I notice that Survivors was remade in 2008, still with the same idea, i.e. that a Chinese lab releases a deadly virus, which spreads worldwide, changing everything…makes you think.
So, anyway, we were all thoroughly frightened in early 2020. However, measures such as the facemask nonsense were not implemented in the UK for about another 7 months. In some parts of Europe, notably Sweden, there was no panic, no facemask nonsense, all the bars and offices stayed open, and —quelle surprise— outcomes were better than in the UK and the other panicked parts of Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Belgium etc).
Since then we have seen that, in the world as a whole (even on the very inflated and misapplied statistics used), maybe 5 million people have died of or, rather, with “the virus”, which figure sounds huge but is out of 8 BILLION people. In other words, roughly one person out of every 1,800.
In fact, most of the deceased had other life-threatening problems anyway, many have been very aged (thus with low immunity), and many have become part of the death-statistics simply because they had (unreliable) positive tests for “the virus” up to a month prior to their death (which might even have been in a car accident). Absurd.
The UK is now going to be hit with poverty and restriction thanks to the policies applied for nearly two years by part-Jew chancer “Boris” and Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak. Pensioners are going to be hit as far as they can be without alienating their mainly pro-Conservative Party votes entirely; taxes overall will be increased by stealth as far as possible.
Huge amounts that could have been spent improving infrastructure and/or the environment have been just squandered on nothing much, squandered for no reason.
The crazed “furlough” payments and other policies did not come free of charge, though the masses probably, in fact clearly, assumed that they did.
Interesting. Even less favourable than I would have assumed. A small sample, though.
A far larger sample than with the previous tweets, but once you adjust for the inbuilt Remainer bias on Twitter, the result is, in reality, probably not far off 50-50 again.
Keep chucking a few msm crumbs at Ash Sarkar and her cohorts, and the System will have no trouble from them, none at all. Give her a regular TV slot, and she will say (and probably do) almost anything…
Meanwhile, and while free speech in the UK is being destroyed by, mainly, Jew-Zionists, the BBC has seen fit to make a TV drama series, Ridley Road, portraying Jew terrorists, gangsters, and other thugs of the 1960s, as heroes.
Britain: the view from New York
A girl I once knew had a Jamaican record, the lyrics of which went something like “Execute de corruptors!“…
Perhaps it is the right time to supply a few links about Mosley, to redress the imbalance caused by (((the usual))) BBC and other msm propaganda: https://www.oswaldmosley.com/; https://www.sanctuarypress.com/; https://www.sanctuarypress.com/bookshop/civilization-as-divine-superman/; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oswald_Mosley.
Possible, yes. Also very short-lived.
As Labour is now, its only hope of office is to get within about 50-60 seats of a Commons majority, and then to make a compact of some sort with the SNP and its MPs (numbering, at present, 45). However, the SNP would only make such a compact on the firm understanding of an early Indyref Mark 2. If that were to happen, and if, then, the SNP won such a second “indyref”, then the UK would break up, the SNP would no longer be in the Commons at all, and Labour as a party of government would be history.
Good point from Hitchens here. The point is valid also in respect of the Second World War. In the UK, great strides were being made in the 1930s in the areas of town planning, housing etc; the Depression poverty of the North was certainly not replicated in the South of England, generally speaking, certainly not in the late 1930s. The War spoiled much of the good that was happening. Britain only started to recover from its pyrrhic victory from or after 1955.
