Diary Blog, 26 June 2021, including more thoughts about Labour Party chances

Batley and Spen by-election

I continue to update my by-election blog post daily: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/06/04/the-batley-and-spen-by-election-2021/. 5 days left before polling.

“What is Starmer hoping for?” asks tweeter “@Stephen46723144”. Nothing. He is a puppet of the Jew-Zionist lobby. He was inserted into the Labour Party leadership in order to return Labour to the NWO/ZOG fold. He would of course like to be Prime MInister, as a dyed-in-the-wool System careerist, but everything he does reflects his basic allegiance to Jews and Israel. Labour Party interests or prospects come second or third.

Exactly what I have been saying in my blog for a quite long time now— Labour was once the party of both the British “working classes” and of the “progressive” somewhat more affluent. I suppose that both the 1945-51 Attlee governments and the 1960s Wilson governments exemplified that “alliance”.

The Blair-Brown governments of 1997-2010 were a kind of parody of the foregoing. The “workers” were there notionally, but actually without power or influence. The affluent middle classes and many of the Jews both supported and influenced “Blairism”, of which mentally-disturbed Brown’s government was a fag-end.

Over the years from 1945, and especially from the 1980s, the demographic changes in the UK altered the picture, in that mass immigration brought in at first hundreds (1950s), then thousands, then (from the 1980s) millions of immigrants, who started to breed. Most voted Labour.

Other social changes occurred. The industrial “proletariat” disappeared, along with most heavy industry. Their descendants became a latter-day “lumpenproletariat” of (sometimes) drug-abusing “chavscums” etc, or the abused insecure workers or “precariat” of the “gig economy” and the “click economy”.

Traditional ideas did not fit. “Socialist” (supposedly socialist) scribbblers and approved “talking heads” on TV, such as Owen Jones, the part-Jewish faux-revolutionary, tried to write about the “working class” but ended up conflating that old designation with the new “precariat”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chavs:_The_Demonization_of_the_Working_Class

The occasional clips of real people, concerned that Labour was not listening, especially but not exclusively about mass immigration, have become, as people now say, “iconic”:

Telling…as were the remarks Brown later made.

…and look at his later television comment. Questions about immigration from Mrs. Duffy were “irritating“. Yes, it all looks very different at Bilderberg, or at the meetings of Labour Friends of Israel…

Then we have the complete or almost complete takeover of national (i.e. London-centric) Labour by the wealthy (mainly Jew) element. Blair and Brown were both Labour Friends of Israel members, as were and are so many now again at the top of Labour. Rachel Reeves, many others, including of course Keir Starmer.

Labour became, slowly, the party of mainly, those paid from public funds one way or another, and the party of the ethnic minorities generally. After Corbyn came to prominence, Jews mostly left Labour, but the blacks and browns remained and became Labour’s new core vote.

In Scotland, the former Labour voters went mostly to the faux-nationalist SNP. In England, real social nationalism was all but banned, and now even more so. Labour voters began simply not voting. The graphic below shows that, in the 2017 and 2019 general elections:

The white English have largely abandoned Labour. The 2021 Hartlepool by-election showed that. Far more abstained than changed allegiance from Labour to Conservative, taking the whole eligible electorate into account.

Look at the 2021 Chesham and Amersham by-election: Labour 1.6%. Yes, former Labour voters voted tactically, to deny the Conservatives a win, but still very telling, in my view.

Now we see that, at Batley, the Muslim brown voters will not, most of them, vote for the Labour candidate, because she is white, lesbian, and Labour, which is now led by a puppet of the Jewish/Israel lobby. Also, they have an alternative for whom to vote: Galloway.

However, the white English former Labour voters are also jumping ship, because the Labour candidate is just someone pushed in to try to get a “sympathy vote”, her sister having been assassinated by a socio-political dissident in 2016.

The English voters at Batley think that a Conservative MP might get more help from a Conservative central government. As well as that, the local council has ignored white English people for years.

The Labour candidate has not defended the English schoolteacher driven from his job and home by Muslim crazies.

The by-election at Batley has brought into focus the sheer uselessness of Labour. It has not opposed the Government on so many recent issues: the facemask nonsense, “lockdowns”, social security etc. Without most English and without most Muslim/brown people supporting it, where does Labour go? The Twitterati twits, NHS zealots and West Indians only add up to about 15% of the population…

Once again, I beat John Rentoul. He scored 5/10, whereas I scored 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 2, 4, and 10.

Birmingham

Interesting short (3 mins) video:

Not a city I know. I got lost in its outer suburbs once in the car, at about 2am, but have never seen it apart from that, and also from a train once or twice, and another time when my Flybe plane made an unscheduled landing, halfway through the flight, at Birmingham Airport. Sounds like the city is a bit of a zoo now. I understand that the shambolic local government there is infested by Common Purpose termites.

Can you imagine a creature like Dawn Butler as Leader of the Labour Party? Ha ha! “I’m lovin’ it”…In fact, now that Labour is (in terms of voters at least) largely black and brown, she might fit well, though of course that will be the end of Labour as a major force nationally.

The Whigs disappeared, the Liberal Party declined and disappeared, the LibDems are disappearing; Labour is sliding now. “Conservatives”? Like the Bar, the Conservatives have kept the names and titles, but not the content…

Labour Party supporters. Take a look at their Twitter profiles. Ha ha! Also, note that they almost excuse the fact that they are white…

They are also not young.

The second one realizes that Labour is falling to pieces, though.

Whether the Hancock scandal will have much effect on the upcoming by-election is doubtful. It may have, it may not have. My instinct says no.

Exactly what I said yesterday in answer to a commentator on my blog. Hancock will be kept alive like the wrapped-up fly in a spider’s web, until the spider decides to utilize him. Then— gone. That might be tomorrow, it might be in 6 months or more. The only thing that might expedite it is if Boris-idiot think that Hancock remaining in post will lose the by-election at Batley and Spen.

[Update, a day later: well, Boris-idiot did not sack him, but Hancock did not want to be a fly wrapped up for later use, so resigned. That’s him binned…]

Ha ha! Ecce the white “me too”, pro-BLM Labour Party supporter! These idiots must have a death wish! At first I thought that that comment was parody, but no!

All very well, but what is the point of this? It is akin to a letter to a newspaper, or a blog, posing as a by-election candidature. As I say, I have no quarrel with what is said, but this person and her party are a one-issue party, pretty much.

I have to admit that Ms. Waters seems more personable than I had thought, with a pleasant Irish manner.

“There may be trouble ahead”…

Overnight, some straws in the wind. In Manchester, hundreds of students tore down 7-ft-high fencing put up to isolate their accommodation buildings. The security guards and police were unable to stop them.

Meanwhile, a poll shows that nearly half of young people intend to ignore the so-called “rules” over Christmas and New Year: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8918711/Four-10-young-people-say-BREAK-Covid-lockdown-rules-Christmas.html. If 40% say so, probably 60% really intend to transgress, and 80% will!

My feeling at present is that the System (and so the Boris-idiot ZOG/NWO “government of clowns”) intends to keep the police-state restrictions of the “lockdown” (shutdown) going until next Spring or Summer. They will probably “allow” a relaxation over Christmas and New Year, and so be able, later, to claim that there has been another “upsurge” in “the virus” by reason of the “irresponsibility” of parts of the public…

The virus is almost incidental. The real purpose is to weaponize it so that greater social and political control can be imposed.

The malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” crows about its victory over a Jew who dislikes Zionist Jews. Only yesterday, the “CAA” failed to ruin pharmacist Nazim Ali (who was issued only with a “warning” by his disciplinary tribunal). I blogged yesterday about the Nizam Ali case.

I was amused to see that the “CAA” says that it was “advised” by Mark Lewis, the abusive solicitor who now lives in Eilat, Israel, and who now calls himself “Dr” Mark Lewis because his old poly gave him an honorary doctorate several years ago. I have blogged about the egregious Lewis in the past (use the search function on this blog to find those articles).

Quite right. Keir Starmer is a Jewish-lobby puppet and “virus” alarmist with no idea, about anything, worth anything.

Yes. That is where we are. Not the old socialist-style “police state”, but the new dystopian public-private partnership, politically-correct, virtue-signalling police state, heavily disguised with Common Purpose fake communitarianism.

Sargon of Akkad (Carl Benjamin)

The “alt-Right” or “alt-Lite” tweeter and vlogger, “Sargon of Akkad” (Carl Benjamin), has now been “suspended”, quite possibly permanently, from Twitter.

[update, same day: I may have been mistaken re. suspension of at least one “Sargon of Akkad” account. My main points stand, though]

Obviously, I have little time for those “alt-Right”/”alt-Lite” wastes of space (Sargon of Akkad, Prison Planet Watson, Katie Hopkins etc) but I have no wish to see them censored or gagged. The Jews and their “antifa” dupes are of a different view. They regard every free speech avenue closed as a victory.

It does reinforce my views that, firstly, System censorship and control is intensifying: the more interesting David Icke was removed from Twitter a day or two ago, and the Bitchute platform has suffered too, having been taken down.

Even Trump has been to some extent censored by Twitter!

If even the President of the United States cannot rely on having free speech, what chance for anyone else?

What really matters, though, is not online comment but concrete results, and boots on the ground.

Ethnic breakdown of voters in USA

Seems clear on the basis of the above (n.b. seems genuine but I have no source) that all of those groups except the (tied) top two (white and non-white college graduates, i.e degree-holders) and white non-college graduates, are far more likely to vote Democrat.

Non-whites now outnumber whites in the USA, and the disparity is growing. The 2016 and 2020 election were not simple white v. non-white contests, but it is clear that that binary was important in both elections and like to become more so.

Puting it bluntly, democracy of the one-man one-vote sort kills the future for white people if the population of voters is mixed, and the whites in the minority.

As someone who has not cycled for nearly 40 years (and that was in Amsterdam), I think that the “cycle lanes” all over the UK are totally stupid. The problem, though, is they usually just appropriate part of an existing road, whereas in places like the Netherlands and Denmark, new cycleways are created, where possible, separate from motorized traffic. It’s all planned.

The careful and intelligent analysis and thinking of such as former Lord of Appeal, Lord Sumption (and me!), is out of place now. The “plebs”, the hysterical pseudo-intelligentsia of the msm and Twitter, the non-whites (speaking generally), have no time for it, and no understanding, and no tolerance.

I have never had much time for Julia Hartley-Brewer, but she is absolutely right here: the nation (not alone; there are others around the world) has lost its mind. It has been made to lose its mind. There are sinister forces behind all this “virus” panic, forces that are using the situation as an experiment in mass psychological manipulation.

The better white people in the USA should be making plans to concentrate mainly in one, or a few, areas. They have lost the demographic battle. Not that Trump supporters are all white by any means, but the wider question has nothing to do with the egregious Trump. It is a question of the future of European-origined people in the near-future North America.

Now we hear that in Liverpool, in London, and across the UK, infections of Coronavirus are falling! This is being recorded now and has been in the past days. In other words, before the “lockdown” (shutdown) even started! What more does it take to wake up both people and Government?

I blogged to this effect, more or less, only last week…

I am basically opposed to nuclear power, but one cannot put one’s head in the sand. The UK is in danger of running short on power, partly because of the criminal increase in population by reason of mass immigration, then births to such immigrants and migrant-invaders.

At present, it would be possible, were there better relations with Russia, to import gas cheaply from Russian fields in the Arctic and Siberia. Looking ahead further, the UK should attempt energy security: solar, sub-earthly (deep heat) etc.

19 October 2020

Happened to hear Lord “Gus” O’Donnell, former head of the Civil Service, on BBC Radio 4 PM, a show that became so pathetic and self-indulgent over the years that I stopped listening (in common with, I suspect, almost all of its one-time audience).

Switching over from Radio 3, I heard O’Donnell say something quite striking: churches, said he, had become “community hubs”, along with other places. He added that, instead of being the House of God, they were now the House of Good, by which he meant communitarian good works and societal cohesion.

It could be argued that the two are almost synonymous. “God, or whatever means the Good...”, as Louis MacNeice wrote in one of his poems, Meeting Point [https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/91396/meeting-point]. Another analogous substitution might be “Common Era” instead of Anno Domini, along with “Before Common Era”, BCE, instead of Before Christ (B.C.).

Having said that, and however good the motives for turning churches into combination coffee shops, cafes, souvenir shops, therapy centres, food bank outlets and concert halls (or village halls), the inevitable result of all the social and cultural noise is that a certain spiritual peace is lost. To put it in a more sensationalist way, God is squeezed out, though squeezed out, of course, for the best of motives…

I wonder whether Lord O’Donnell was ever connected with Common Purpose? I should not be surprised.

Some tweets seen this evening

Chris Bryant, one of the most obviously “dodgy” MPs in the Westminster monkeyhouse: pro-Israel, pro-Jewish lobby, very tied up with Common Purpose too. An expenses cheat. Sleazy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Bryant; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Bryant#Expenses_claims_scandal; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Bryant#Personal_life.

Not that his radio interlocutor above has the moral high ground, as a scribbler for the Sun “newspaper”…

The “lockdown” and facemask nonsense is largely being driven by people (MPs and others) getting generous pay and expenses from public sources, and who are unaffected by the trashing of the economy.

Remember remember the 5th of November,

Gunpowder, treason and plot,

Life is short but memory long,

And traitors deserve to be shot!

Unexpected.

Completely expected. The troupe of clowns pretending to be “our” government will do whatever they want to do, lie about it, weasel about it, and laugh at the people they pretend to govern.

The hypocrisy is ingrained. I have only ever seen one episode of The Simpsons, when I lived in New Jersey in the very early 1990s. I cannot recall the storyline, but the show ended with Bart Simpson sitting down and starting “…so, kids, now you know that war is always wrong...” before reconsidering…”oh…except the war against Saddam Hussein…oh, and the Second World War… and the First World War, and of course the War of Independence, and…” You get the idea.

Human beings are often hypocritical, and rarely totally congruent. The hypocrisy and incongruity rises to 99%+ in politicians of the type we have, those Adolf Hitler called “dirty democratic politicians”, though the UK versions are rarely even “democratic” in any real sense.

More “cultural enrichment”…

Coronavirus ghost towns

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8853201/More-MILLION-hospitality-retail-jobs-vanish-end-year.html

More accurately, government-created ghost towns. This madness is now totally out of control. Hardly anyone under 40 is at real risk of both becoming infected and suffering serious effects, yet the whole country is still more or less shut down.

In fact, even most people over 40, but under 70, are only at low risk.

When Alison Chabloz started getting seriously persecuted by the pack of Jews known as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, manipulating compliant or suborned police, a few years ago, Martin Bashir [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Bashir], then recently-appointed BBC Religious Affairs Correspondent, was observed creeping around the garden of the house in the Derbyshire Peak District belonging to Alison Chabloz’s aged parents. In fact, “creep” seems to be the best description of the bastard.

I would define (((the problem))) more directly…

True, but ditch the outdated and almost meaningless “Right”/”Left” stuff.

Yes. Putting the clocks back and forward is one of those things that are implemented for doubtful good reasons, but then get stuck and carry on for years, or decades, because society is too lazy to bin them. Other examples would include dog licences, radio licences and having only a ludicrously small amount of foreign currency purchaseable in person, the amount being written in your passport! All of the foregoing were in existence, though the licences were mostly ignored, until Mrs. Thatcher junked them in or about 1980.

We sometimes think that societal progress or change is automatic, when in fact, often, things do have to be actually disposed of actively.

Which will be a perfect get-out for Boris-idiot and SAGE (“DUMB”— Department Under Matt and Boris). “Coronavirus flaring up? Oh, it’s because all those dissidents and Covidiots are not complying with our rules…”. Forgetting that France and Spain have had far stricter “lockdowns” etc and yet have a far worse death rate per 100,000 from (with) “the virus” than has the UK.

The “virus” in the UK peaked in early April, and has been falling ever since, but only in the past couple of months has the population been forced to wear facemasks…Absurd. They make no difference at all.

Latest conspiracy theory

What follows is the latest conspiracy theory about “the virus”. I know that it is the very latest, because I have just made it up. I have no evidence at all for it. Not that it might not just be true…

My instant theory is that an international conspiracy has decided to reduce both the world population and world economic activity by releasing a virus which, like multiple independently-targeted re-entry vehicles (MIRVs), will take multiple forms, killing some people, creating long-term infertility in others, and mutating to return in ever more deadly forms for years. Meanwhile, those behind the facade of national governments will keep both political and economic control, repressing dissent, preventing mass gatherings and even small conclaves.

Well, I make no claim as to the accuracy of the foregoing, but it may be correct all the same…

All too true both then and now…

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

Eric Joyce and India Knight

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Long-term relationship: Eric Joyce and his partner India Knight pictured in London

Some tweets seen

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

Once again, persons who deserve punishment but have escaped.

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

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

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

Long-term readers of this blog will be aware that I have blogged in the past about “Extinction Rebellion”: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/16/the-extinction-rebellion-levellers/; and https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/09/extinction-rebellion-greta-thunberg-cressida-dick-and-the-madness-of-protesting-crowds/; and https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/09/29/greta-thunberg-system-approved-wunderkind/

1902! Think about that!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The “Alt-Right”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

More tweets seen

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Look at this (below)!

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

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

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

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

but look at the tweet below:

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

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

The madness continues

BBC Radio 4 News report on a budget/holiday airline flight where —horrors!— passengers were not wearing facemasks. It was claimed that one couple have already (since yesterday? Perhaps I misheard) both “developed Covid-like symptoms“. Well, I don’t believe the woman talking about having been infected; maybe she and her husband are planning a nice little compensation claim against the airline.

Even leaving all that aside, “mild Covid-like symptoms?” So what do they want? A medal? What does it matter if a few people develop mild symptoms? Yet here we are, with the BBC going mad because one couple out of hundreds of passengers on a plane are showing mild symptoms of “the virus” (which may or may not be “the virus” and could have been picked up anywhere). This has become hysteria on the grand scale.

Ilford

I have been to Ilford (East London) a few times. The first was when I was a Bar pupil (trainee) nearly 30 years ago and we had a case at Snaresbrook Crown Court where some Arab gypsies had targeted the BHS store in Ilford (now shut down with all the rest: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Home_Stores). The barrister whom I accompanied wanted to see the locus for some reason, so we drove there.

I blogged a couple of years ago about that trial: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/08/03/first-steal-a-chicken/

Snaresbrook Crown Court - Wikipedia
[Snaresbrook Crown Court]

Sometime around 2006-2007 I returned to Ilford, where there was a small County Court which was, a few years later, one of the hundreds of County and Magistrates’ courts closed by reason of the spending cuts of the 2010-2015 David Cameron-Levita government: https://www.ilfordrecorder.co.uk/news/politics/ilford-county-court-to-close-1-753547;

Ilford County Court to close | Ilford Recorder
[Ilford County Court, permanently closed 2011-2012]

On my third visit to Ilford (on the same matter as I visited the second time), again I appeared at the small, dark and moribund-looking County Court (one good thing was that, being situate in a side street out of the central area of Ilford, one could park almost opposite the Court, by a small park or cemetery).

I had stayed overnight at a strange “hotel” of sorts, which was actually in a multistorey car park in the central area, and was on the top floor of the same. I may have been lucky, in that a fellow-member of my chambers, a medico-legal expert called Dr. Thomas (an ex-NHS consultant), parked there a few weeks later, also because he was due to appear at Ilford County Court; his car was broken into, his wig, gown and legal books etc all stolen.

I had the opportunity, if such is the bon mot, to explore the area of central Ilford around the hotel, as I searched for a takeaway (I think that I found a Chinese in the end). My impressions of Ilford (and this was about 14 years ago): something like a cross between a downbeat part of New York City, and maybe Calcutta (though I have never been to the latter).

Seems that Ilford is almost a microcosmic example of the rest of urban Britain: migration invasion, scarcely a white face, litter everywhere, and not so long after I was there, closure of shops and even the local County Court.

More Coronavirus madness

One of the “victims” mentioned in the report at top of this blog post was on Sky News, saying how terrible it was that no-one was wearing a facemask or “social distancing” on the plane! How do you “social distance” on a crowded plane? I think that the woman was a totally brainwashed facemask zealot. She and her husband had themselves decided to “self-isolate” even before being “ordered” to do so! So yes, 16 people out of nearly 200 on that plane have “tested positive”. So what? None are or are likely to show any, or any serious, symptoms.

There is a massive scam/fraud being tried on by the System, via the Government and msm. Fear propaganda.

As the UK becomes ever-more obviously a “control state”, with an “elected” dictatorship of a government and a compliant or similar “Opposition”, anything is justifiable if it stands up for the reasonable freedom and decent future of the British people.

Hopefully, a GoFundMe appeal will be launched to pay his fine. The bigger question is how to destroy the cabals that are behind the conspiracy to make the population compliant and intimidated.

Hitchens is right. Look at the proclamations from government, the documents from the “advisers” and sinister backroom types that have leaked, from Common Purpose drones such as Cressida Dick (who actually suggested that non-masked persons should be “shamed”, meaning bullied, in public. What about, inter alia, “exempt” persons? Do they have to explain themselves to aggressive mask zealots and busybodies, begging their permission or leave?).

Look at that “study” from Brazil. Even on its face, it is plainly nonsense. Its methods and bases are obviously biased. A priori flaws etc.

The “study” also seems to conflate mask-wearing, washing hands, and “social distancing”.

I have blogged for months in favour of washing hands frequently, which is almost certainly the only really important way of protecting oneself and those in one’s own social circle.

“Social distancing”, if done reasonably (eg not attending crowded nightclubs, pubs etc) is also sensible. It is for individuals to protect themselves that way, mostly by avoiding crowded and hot places. The whole “keeping 6 feet away from everyone” is not necessary; peripheral.

As for facemasks, they are useless and may be counter-productive. For the State to mandate the wearing of muzzles is quite wrong; dictatorial.

I have already seen many tweets saying (inaccurately, and presumably based on the fact that the “study” has been published in some obscure psychology magazine) that the “study” has been “peer-reviewed” and so (it is implied) credible. The problem with that is that when a “study” is created by people with a certain view, and then “reviewed” favourably —and so published— by people with similar views, objectivity goes out of the window, and the “study” is not worth the paper on which it was written.

To use the reductio ad absurdam, a “study” created by idiots and “peer-reviewed” by idiots is in reality not credible.

We are getting perilously close to equating dissidence with insanity, as in the Soviet Union in the 1960s and 1970s, as exemplified by the notorious Serbsky Institute: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbsky_Center

Brenton Tarrant

I would not wish to kick someone who is well and truly down, but it is worth considering what Tarrant might have done had he not carried out his notorious massacre. He might, for example, have engaged in political educative work, trying to awaken New Zealand to the menace of mass immigration.

More interestingly, Tarrant might also, for example, have planned and carried out the establishment of a mini-ethnostate in New Zealand, perhaps in the South Island, which has only about a million inhabitants (compared to 4 million on the North Island). The South Island has only one medium-size city (Christchurch; 377,000 inhabitants) and only one other of any size (Dunedin; 105,000). About half of the population live in those two cities.

New Zealand has about 5 million inhabitants in an area about 20% larger than the whole of the UK, which has (disastrously) nearly 70 million people now.

The South Island of New Zealand, much larger than the North, is 58,000 square miles (England alone is 50,000) and, as noted, has a million inhabitants, compared to about 56 million in England alone. The population density is only about a 60th of that of England.

Indeed, the third-largest island of New Zealand, Stewart Island, has only about 400 people in 650 sq. miles, i.e. an area of about 20×30 miles.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stewart_Island. It would be easy to simply take over such an island by moving a few hundred supporters there. Tarrant was maybe too much of a “lone wolf” to think like that.

Tarrant’s massacre has resulted in sympathy for the Muslim immigrants to New Zealand. At least, that is the official line.

There might have been another and better way.

Some notes:

That is in North America.

As far as that tweet is concerned, I agree with Batten 100%. Hitchens is too ready to say “it’s all incompetence by the government and its advisers”. Yes, true enough but too limited. What about those behind the Government, embedded in the Deep State and msm?

Once again, Hitchens is partly-right. However, would you call the Jew Shapps, the part-Jew “Boris”-idiot, the Indian Rishi Sunak, the Indian Priti Patel, Matt Hancock, Gavin Williamson, or the rest, “sons [or daughters] of gentlemen”?! I suggest that Hitchens overvalues the result of a secondary education at Eton or Winchester…

UKIP, Brexit Party etc are just “controlled opposition”

I happened to see the tweets below. The first are from Gerard Batten and Henry Bolton, two of the former leaders of whatever is left of UKIP.

The other tweeters seem to have both more logic and more commonsense than the two would-be “leaders”:

From Batten, complete lack of understanding that “race is the root-stock, culture is the flower“…

Look at this exchange:

What hope was there for UKIP, when its own former leaders are unsure whether, had they been born in Japan (eg in transit), or lived there, they would be Japanese? What a bunch of clowns!

Looks as though Batten needs to look at the Nuremberg Laws (the real ones, not the Jew-Zionist “edited highlights”…

UKIP is of course on a very different page vis a vis my own ideological basis. It never was social-national, and was never heavily attacked by the Jew element in the msm, a very bad sign (individual Jews tweeted etc against UKIP, but the core Zionist element was untroubled by it). UKIP was always given Press coverage, TV coverage; Farage the con-man extraordinaire was forever on Newsnight, Question Time, the TV news etc. Permitted opposition. Controlled opposition.

When UKIP was still a functioning party with a real chance of forming a small House of Commons bloc, I tweeted about it quite frequently. I am talking about between 2010-2015. After 2015, I understood that UKIP’s chance had gone (in fact, it peaked around 2014), cheated as it was by the UK’s pseudo-democratic electoral system: 12.6% of the national vote but only a small fraction of 1% of the MPs, in fact only 1 MP out of 650 (and he was a defected Conservative Party MP anyway).

I did blog a little about UKIP in the runup to the 2017 General Election. I knew that it would sink like a stone. The only reason that I now blog about it (for the first time in about a year) is because I saw those absurd Batten tweets. I was not going to blog today, but I can tack this bit about UKIP onto the start of tomorrow’s blog post.

UKIP has almost fallen into obscurity. Its not-bad 2015 General Election percentage (12.6%) fell to 1.8% in 2017, under the dim Paul Nuttall; that was the first decline in national vote-share that UKIP had ever suffered since its foundation. The 2019 General Election result was even worse: under the ludicrous Patricia Mountain, UKIP’s vote fell to 0.1%, i.e. one vote out of every thousand.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_United_Kingdom_general_election#Full_results

In fact, so obscure is UKIP now that I realize that I was scarcely aware of some of its leaders of recent years.

The tweet/reply below, by one Valerie Leppard, made me laugh (though at the same time despair at the naivety displayed):

Ms. Leppard makes much of the fact that human beings all have 99% similar DNA. That is true. In fact it is said to be considerably higher than 99% similarity. On the other hand, chimpanzees share 96% of their DNA with humans, cats share up to 90%, and even bananas share 60%! https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/human-dna-share-cats-cattle-mice-same-genetics-code-a8292111.html

How far do such facts take you? I was once a guest at a private tennis club in North London. I had gone out of politeness. Despite having played occasionally since childhood, I still scarcely know the rules or how to play properly; anyone who knows me knows that I am not very sport-oriented. I did once score a direct hit from some distance with a tennis ball, on the bottom of a Ukrainian lady who had stooped to pick up another ball, but that hardly counts!

That London tennis club was rather formal. You had to wear the right clothing etc; it also had a pleasant bar, from which one could watch people playing. I saw a doubles match and, to my untutored eye, they looked not much different from the professionals who play at Wimbledon. Of course they were different, and that is the point. There was a far greater gulf between my inept level of play and the doubles-players than there was between them and the Wimbledon champions.

Champions, or the top people in every category of activity, are ipso facto better than almost all others. However, they may not be much better than a mass, perhaps a vast mass, just below that championship level. It is that tiny amount of edge that makes the difference.

Applying that to races and, yes, in big-picture “scientific” terms the DNA of the Northern European is very very close to other peoples, and even to the most backward peoples. It is that tiny difference that, all the same, matters.

In your nothing I hope to find my everything“; “In deinem Nichts hoff ‘ ich, das All zu finden“[Goethe, Faust; Faust answering Mephistopheles, who has said that Faust’s belief is nothing].

Well, leaving such observations and reverting to the mundane world of UK politics as it is, and UKIP, I notice that even Wikipedia has found little to say of some of the post-Farage “leaders” of UKIP. In one case, that of someone called Wauchope, apparently (never heard of him), even the year of his birth is uncertain!

UKIP is said still to have 25,000 members, though I doubt that.

I see that one Freddy Vachha is now the “leader” of this embarrassing joke of a party. An Indian accountant. The tide has gone out, leaving some odd bits and pieces on the sand.

I always supported public service broadcasting. Still do, but the BBC is incurable. Defund the BBC and wipe it out.

We read or hear that semi-lunatic “adviser” Dominic Cummings wants Sunak to impose spending cuts. Now that millions more face being dependent on State benefits by next year, that could just be the flame which, applied to the blue touchpaper of the present developing situation, could trigger the social-national revolution.

Finance-capitalism is failing. Old-style Marxist or Marxist-influenced socialism has already comprehensively failed, in the UK and across the world. The people will be ready to clutch at our straw. Not yet. Soon, though.

Regular readers of this blog will recall the encounters I had with a couple of similar brainwashed would-be lecturing idiots a while ago.

If staff in businesses, or anyone else, act like cartoon labour camp overseers or prison guards, then they must expect to be laughed at.

Resist the facemask nonsense! Only wear a facemask if you really have no choice, and if you do wear a mask, make sure that you do so in a manner that makes it clear that you mock the nonsense and the government of clowns. Laugh at those who take it all seriously. Laugh at the rabbits!

The Army, Navy, Marines are all recruiting now on TV. They are finding it hard going to recruit many. I wonder why? Could it be that potential recruits realize that the armed services have become a joke? Also, that they abandon their people once their useful service has ended?

Take a look at Twitter. The Jewish-Zionist cabal on Twitter constantly tweets in favour of the migrant-invaders, “generously” wanting more to invade us. Yes, that Jewish mob on Twitter are all wonderfully generous with other people’s money, State funds etc, wanting the UK to take in anyone who manages to get here, no matter how hostile or useless. The same is true of “refugees welcome” dimwits and hypocrites such as Gary Lineker, Yvette Cooper, Lily Allen and all the other usual suspects.

Batten is too late. Regular readers of my blog will know that I suggested at least a year ago that Harry and the Royal Mulatta should (and would) relocate from the UK to Southern California.

I went on to suggest that they become a “reality TV” sitcom mix, perhaps living a pseudo-“royal” life in a little house; just Harry, the Mulatta, their baby, the dog (if not abandoned) and a butler, a Benson type. “Royal Married with Children“, with the Mulatta running her henpecked “cuck” husband ragged with impossible demands, as she tries to be a contender for political positions.

Sometimes I think that I am a male Cassandra, always predicting accurately, but rarely listened to…

Well, “historian” (TV presenter) Neil Oliver may be belatedly speaking up for some free speech now, but I seem to recall that he tweeted against me years ago when I still had a Twitter account. I have never seen anything from him supporting me, eg when I was disbarred for posting 5 tweets (out of 150,000+) on socio-political matters. I likewise did not see him support Jez Turner (imprisoned for making a speech) or Alison Chabloz (persecuted, prosecuted and convicted for singing satirical songs).

I also recall how biased Oliver was when some matters involving WW2 came up on his TV show, Coast.

Scotland does seem to be even worse on free speech than England. The combined influence of Jew-Zionism, freemasonry, Common Purpose (Police Scotland is riddled with both of the last two) and post-socialist SNP petty authoritarianism.

Ironic. What does Batten think that UKIP were? Quite. Controlled opposition. Just like Brexit Party, Tommy Robinson, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, Katie Hopkins etc.

Only machineguns can sort out this upsurge of madness in the USA. What it says to me is not “there is disorder now” but “if the US system ever weakens greatly, which is quite possible, there will be civil war“. Those unpleasant scenes may well be just the start.

I noticed in Waitrose that Ben & Jerry’s icecream is not selling, and has been reduced in price as a consequence. Don’t bother to sabotage it. Just boycott it.

Although Beira is the popular resort on the Indian Ocean, the hotel has never been able to attract many visitors.

Hard to know what to think. The Greenland ice cover is vast and deep, certainly, and Wikipedia says that “If the Greenland ice sheet were to melt away completely, the world’s sea level would rise by more than 7 m (23 ft).

If that were to happen, a scenario that has interested me since the late 1970s (along with the possible melting of polar ice proper, both from Arctic and Antarctic), then most of the major cities of the world would be drowned, situated as most are on or near sea-level.

A rise of 23ft would flood much of London, New York, Tokyo, St. Petersburg, to name only a few of the most obvious.

On the other hand, we know that Greenland has been at times warmer than it now is. The Vikings farmed there; there are remains of farmsteads from quite ancient times, certainly from the first millennium AD: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland#History.

Not all of Greenland is ice and snow, however. In that vast land, over nine times the size of the UK, there is farming, in the southern part, by the coast.

I doubt that humanity can do much to change the climate in a significant way, but the issue is naturally one of utmost seriousness.

Less seriously, I just read that “Greenlandic coffee is a “flaming” dessert coffee (set alight before serving) made with coffee, whiskey, Kahlúa, Grand Marnier, and whipped cream. It is stronger than the familiar Irish dessert coffee.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland#Cuisine. After a few of those, the sting of living in Greenland must at least be made less painful!

Rule Britannia

If you went, as orchestral conductor, or as ordinary tourist, to another country, and then tried to trash the traditional festivals of that country, you would be jeered at and quite possibly attacked or deported. In Britain, all sorts of oddities arrive, aided by traitors in the BBC etc, and want to disrespect us. I know that Rule Britannia is now simply an expression of an Empire that no longer exists, but it does stand for part of the national psyche. The part not yet contaminated. It must not be blotted out by the “woke”, the non-whites, the cosmopolitan Jews etc. As performed at the Proms, it is both emotional and fun. It must remain.

Coronavirus idiocy

Some local coronavirus outbreaks may just be mass hysteria, the new Government body in charge of Britain’s response has warned, saying that many people could wrongly believe they are infected.” [Daily Telegraph] https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/07/25/local-coronavirus-outbreaks-could-mass-hysteriajoint-biosecurity/?li_source=LI&li_medium=liftigniter-rhr

Those who read my blog every day will be aware that I had “interaction” yesterday with people who actually think that wearing facemasks will prevent transmission of “the virus”. They think so because they have been told so; told by this incompetent government; told by the msm liars and me-too-ers; told by Twitter…

The imposition of facemasks now is just mad. “The virus” seems to have peaked, in the UK, in March or early April of this year. There is little evidence that masks actually prevent transmission of “the virus” anyway (and plenty of evidence that they have negative health consequences generally), but if facemasks were going to be imposed, then March or April would have been the logical time.

To impose facemasks or “muzzles” now, when there are virtually no deaths occurring and few new infections, is quixotic, almost mad. We have to bear in mind that most “new infections” are of people who, almost all, will show few if any symptoms, and certainly require no medical intervention.

Also, as I noted yesterday (when I had an altercation with some busybodying Chinese yoot who thought that he was the Hampshire branch of the Red Guard), the area where I live had only a few deaths even at peak. The odds of even being infected in this area are tiny, yet Boris-idiot and his incompetent crew have decided, in their non-existent wisdom, that anyone shopping in the local small towns and villages, even in a large outlet such as a supermarket, must wear a mask or muzzle!

On the other hand, if you want to patronize a pub, bar or restaurant, fine! No muzzle or mask required…

One has to wonder what sort of cretin becomes an MP or minister (or shadow minister) these days. Look at the above “requirements”, look at the totality. Is any of it reasonable, logical, sensible?

What interests me, in part, about so many people today, is how very risk-averse they are, to an almost pathological degree. Whatever I may think of the British of the WW2 era, those people had resilience. In London and elsewhere, when bombs were falling (the peak being mid/late-1940 to mid-1941), people still went out to pubs and to fish and chip shops, the wealthier citizens to the Savoy, the Ritz, the Dorchester, and to (other) places of entertainment. They took “the War” in their stride.

Now? Much of the population is running scared of a virus which most people do not get (those who do often show no effect whatever), and which in any case has largely run its course in the UK. Pathetic.

Looked at from one point of view, this could easily be seen as an experiment in mind-control on the mass level.

There are always those who say, “we must do x, because even if only one life is saved, it is worth it”. They sometimes ramp up the emotional coercion by inserting “one child’s life…”.

So, on that basis, should the speed-limit for cars and trucks be reduced to 20 mph, or 10 mph, motorways included? That would save hundreds, probably thousands of lives each year in the UK. Or how about banning all motor transport? Now that would certainly save thousands of lives in terms of motor accidents. Sadly, however, it would also destroy the UK economy, cripple UK society, and would cost a large number of lives in various ways.

Apply the above to “lockdown” (shutdown) and to the mask nonsense.

I have not only often visited but, in a couple of cases, actually lived and worked in countries which are or were “police states”, if you like (authoritarian, with few “civil rights” or real rights under law), but this facemask nonsense feels more intrusive than did living in those places. By far. Perhaps because it is an intrusion by the State (and by emboldened busybodies) into one’s own personal space.

Well, you will not often find me applauding a Jew, but if one such were to say, “the time is half-past five”, then I should probably believe that, especially if I verify the fact by looking at my own watch.

In fact, Hitchens is wrong on the strict legal point, insofar as a shop can exclude any customer (except where that is on the basis of any of various types of unlawful “discrimination”). Some types of people are indeed exempt from the latest Boris-idiot law (or should that be “law”?), but that merely (in theory) gives a defence against prosecution and/or fine; it does not give unfettered right of entry to any particular shop.

Hitchens is right in general, though. There is a groupthink in place at present. Common Purpose chief of police, Cressida Dick, illustrated her “leading beyond authority” brainwashing on LBC radio a day or two ago, in saying that non-facemask-wearers should be “shamed” by members of the public. That is not only wrong morally but can be taken to be unlawful incitement (eg against the disabled who cannot wear facemasks and are exempt from doing so). Incitement, and by the Commissioner of Metropolitan Police!

I believe that I heard (misheard, I hope) that the choir at Worcester Cathedral, known to Elgar and others, is being closed down too, also for not being “diverse” enough. This is a war against British people, against white Northern European people, in fact. What was the old saying, “all’s fair in love and war”? Fight back, England!

Afternoon poem

To a Cat

I
Stately, kindly, lordly friend,
      Condescend
Here to sit by me, and turn
Glorious eyes that smile and burn,
Golden eyes, love’s lustrous meed,
On the golden page I read.

All your wondrous wealth of hair,
      Dark and fair,
Silken-shaggy, soft and bright
As the clouds and beams of night,
Pays my reverent hand’s caress
Back with friendlier gentleness.

Dogs may fawn on all and some
      As they come;
You, a friend of loftier mind,
Answer friends alone in kind.
Just your foot upon my hand
Softly bids it understand.

Morning round this silent sweet
      Garden-seat
Sheds its wealth of gathering light,
Thrills the gradual clouds with might,
Changes woodland, orchard, heath,
Lawn, and garden there beneath.

Fair and dim they gleamed below:
      Now they glow
Deep as even your sunbright eyes,
Fair as even the wakening skies.
Can it not or can it be
Now that you give thanks to see?

May not you rejoice as I,
      Seeing the sky
Change to heaven revealed, and bid
Earth reveal the heaven it hid
All night long from stars and moon,
Now the sun sets all in tune?

What within you wakes with day
      Who can say?
All too little may we tell,
Friends who like each other well,
What might haply, if we might,
Bid us read our lives aright.

II
Wild on woodland ways your sires
      Flashed like fires:
Fair as flame and fierce and fleet
As with wings on wingless feet
Shone and sprang your mother, free,
Bright and brave as wind or sea.

Free and proud and glad as they,
      Here to-day
Rests or roams their radiant child,
Vanquished not, but reconciled,
Free from curb of aught above
Save the lovely curb of love.

Love through dreams of souls divine
      Fain would shine
Round a dawn whose light and song
Then should right our mutual wrong —
Speak, and seal the love-lit law
Sweet Assisi’s seer foresaw.

Dreams were theirs; yet haply may
      Dawn a day
When such friends and fellows born,
Seeing our earth as fair at morn,
May for wiser love’s sake see
More of heaven’s deep heart than we.

[Swinburne, To a Cat]

Hitchens is right about much. Russia is not the old Soviet Union, which had (at least in principle) a strategy of world domination. As for Hitchens’ Any Questions interlocutor, the amusingly misnamed James Cleverly, he is quite the typical government minister of the day: a half-caste with a “degree” in “Hospitality Management” from some degree mill. These people struggle to rise to medocrity…

That is ingrained in the Jews. Some are conscious of pushing that line and conscious of their anti-European or anti-“white” “racism”, while others do so almost automatically. It is in all or virtually all of them, however.

Labour

I have often blogged about this before. The Labour Party emerged from socio-economic conditions that no longer apply. The original proletariat scarcely exists. The new “precariat” is either non-political or volatile. There is little left of ingrained “I live in x, I do y job and my grandparents voted z, so I am voting z too.”

Labour made sense to the industrial proletariat of 1926, 1945, even the early 1980s. Free medical, better free education, more help for the sick, disabled, elderly etc. That all made sense to Labour voters; indeed, the “One Nation” Conservatives, from 1950-1979, or even 1950-1997, themselves followed such policies in large measure. After 1945, they had to.

Now? Well, it will be recalled that Jack London said, “I am a socialist, but a white man first“…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_London. That probably sums up the viewpoint of many UK Labour or former Labour voters. Have they left Labour or has Labour left them?

Labour is now just one of the “ZOG/NWO” parties: controlled or influenced by the Jewish-Zionist lobby; pro-finance capitalism; pro-Israel; pro USA/NATO; pro-mass immigration etc.

The only demographic now voting Labour in really large numbers is that of the non-whites. The under-24s too, but it has to be remembered that, as our English, Scottish, Welsh populations decline through paucity of births, the non-white populations are hugely increasing. They may not be, in the old phrase, “breeding like rabbits”, but the non-white birthrate is very significantly higher than that of the English (etc).

In other words, a very high proportion of under-24s in the UK, especially in England, are non-whites.

The English —and Welsh— people have nowhere to go. Fake “Conservatism” under Boris-idiot and all the other clowns, or fake “Labour”, under Jewish lobby doormat Keir Starmer.

Scotland has fake “nationalism, of course, via the SNP.

The best thing would be for the Labour Party to slide and eventually disappear. At least then the British people might find an alternative party or movement to support, rather than swinging from Con to Lab to Con, with little real change.

The Coronavirus madness continues

This (below) is worth reading:

and the Boris-idiot government has decided that you will wear muzzles or facemasks in supermarkets. Not in pubs, though! Or restaurants. Or at work. Yet many rabbits are still going to be out tomorrow wearing their silly facemasks and denouncing anyone not doing the same!

and here [below] is Commissioner of Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, no less, again advocating lawless communitarian police-statism:

Peter Hitchen refers to Cressida Dick “exceeding her authority“. That will not offend her. Au contraire. That is what Common Purpose teaches such drones to do: https://commonpurpose.org/knowledge-hub-archive/all-articles/leading-beyond-authority/

Wearing a facemask muzzle is not a “necessary” public health measure but an experiment in herding or corralling the populations of a number of countries, including the UK. Think of women in traditional hardline Islamic societies: hooded, veiled, without much personality, unable to do much or say much about society; compliant; submissive… That is exactly what ZOG/NWO wants for the British people, among others.

ZOG has obviously been emboldened by the “success” of the lockdown. Success, but not in stopping “Coronavirus”. The virus had already peaked, just before the “lockdown” shutdown was even imposed. No, the “success” was in getting the population to be compliant, driven by fear of a plague that never was, and by the vague “laws”, “rules” and “advice” sprayed out from government and the toytown police (state).

“The future you chose”?

Maybe the British people “chose” their future by not opposing it by a better vision, and thus condemning us to a future (present) where ultra-wealthy Jews have three mega-yachts in Monaco, and Gary Lineker etc get a million a year for gassing about football on TV, but most British people are caged in a multikulti zoo, in poverty or near-poverty.

So, yes, the British people bear some of the guilt and blame, but the weight of that must rest with NWO/ZOG conspirators, and with the traitors in Westminster, BBC, Sky News, the Press, publishing and academia.

“NHS is not for sale”…

The dumbing down of society

This goes beyond poor cultural levels or levels of general (or any) knowledge. There is less and less understanding, even among (perhaps especially among) those who are supposedly educated, for concepts such as free speech, personal liberty, society under law, respect for others, decent behaviour generally.

You see it in the pronouncements around the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense. The Superintendent of police in Bristol who thought it best to allow the multikulti mob to tear down an old statue because (in his world?) it would look bad for his men to be seen protecting the statue of someone who once dealt in slaves (250 years ago). In which case, tear down anything to do with Elizabeth I, Charles II, James I, Queen Anne etc. Maybe that is or will be the next step of those behind these “protests”.

The Superintendent in question took refuge in the idea that if his men protected the statue, not only would it look questionable (he thinks) but windows nearby might be broken by the mob and that would be terrible in the “Coronavirus” sitation, when Bristol retailers are already suffering.

Where does one start, in unpacking such nonsense? First, the retailers are suffering mainly because an incompetent government has scared the population out of its skin and shut down the economy. Second, it is simply not the job of a police superintendent to concern himself with the wider economic effects of his doing his duty. His job is just that: to do his duty, prevent any mob breaking the law, and to arrest those so breaking the law. Das ist’s!

That is one example of the sheer lack of intelligent thought around. For others, look at, eg, Twitter. Examples abound.

There are many people who say that “you have free speech, but are not free from the consequences of your speech”. A law lecturer called Paul Bernal, from East Anglia, is fond of tweeting that or similar formulae.

I feel sorry for the students of someone so unthinking. According to that formulation, Stalin’s Soviet Union, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Khmer Republic (Cambodia) etc all had “free speech”, because you could say whatever you liked in those societies, so long as you did not mind “the consequences” (being shot, sent to labour camps, or having your head beaten in by rifle butts).

O Mensch! Gib acht!

Was spricht die tiefe Mitternacht?»Ich schlief, ich schlief—,

Aus tiefem Traum bin ich erwacht:—

Die Welt ist tief,Und tiefer als der Tag gedacht.

Tief ist ihr Weh—,

Lust—tiefer noch als Herzeleid:

Weh spricht: Vergeh!Doch alle Lust will Ewigkeit—,

—will tiefe, tiefe Ewigkeit!«

[“O man! Take heed!

What saith deep midnight, indeed?”

I lay asleep, asleep—I waked from my deep dream.

The world is deep,

And deeper than even day may dream.

Deep is its woe—Joy— deeper yet than woe is she:

Saith woe: ‘Hence! Go!’

Yet joy would have eternity,—Profound, profound eternity!”]

What she is “missing” is that it is the Mayor of London, via Transport for London [TfL] who decides about the London Congestion Charge…but when did lack of basic knowledge ever stop any (well-known or obscure) person from tweeting?

Look at this (below):

The “Lubaba” one apparently lives in Croydon, and is a Student Union officer, so was probably brought up (and born) in the UK, but hates us –meaning hates British, meaning “white”, people– (under cover of hating the British Empire).

She thinks that she and her family would be much better off had her ancestors been left in the primaeval squalor of Central or West Africa…

Against stupidity, the Gods themselves struggle in vain” [Schiller].

I notice that “Lubaba” has flags from Barbados, Trinidad and Palestine on her Twitter masthead, as well as what is presumably the Labour Party rose. No Union Jack. No St. George’s flag. Many of the blacks and browns often seem to just hate us. They really should not be in Europe at all. And they are steadily outbreeding us…

Here are some more untermenschen supposedly “equal” to us…

I saw this interesting blog post about the British Empire:

https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/106217350/posts/70147

Slavery:

Perhaps the most emotive [accusation] concerns slavery. During the 18th century, the peak of the huge and lucrative Atlantic slave trade, British merchants bought slaves from African rulers — on average, 120 people every day by the 1780s — and sold them primarily to French, Portuguese-Brazilian and British planters. Was this the source of Britain’s wealth, and the fuel of the Industrial Revolution? Profit from the slave trade made individuals rich, but accounted for about one per cent of national income. The Industrial Revolution’s key element was coal, of which Britain had a lot.

Where the British Empire’s relationship with slavery was unique was in combatting it. Britain abolished its own slave trade in 1807. In 1834 it abolished slavery throughout the Empire. British subjects were forbidden to own slaves anywhere in the world.”

I have to admit that I was unaware that the slave trade accounted for only 1% of national income (unclear as to whether that 1% was only the actual trade, or including profits made using slaves, eg West Indies cotton and sugar).

Here (above) is a link to that article. It is very true about Wikipedia. I like and use Wikipedia a great deal, but it is very blinkered on certain topics, among which is the so-called “holocaust” fable. Many of Wikipedia’s editors (mostly unpaid volunteers) are Jews (especially American Jews).

Another topic upon which Wikipedia is very biased is anything to do with what the Jews, “antifa” idiots and msm usually term “far Right” politics. You will be misinformed if you rely on Wikipedia for information about that.

Finally, Wikipedia will allow newspaper articles to be cited, but not if the newspaper is the Daily Mail! The Sun? OK. The Daily Mirror? OK. Morning Star? OK. In fact, as far as I know, any newspaper, and certainly any mainstream newspaper, is OK, but never the Daily Mail. On any topic. I am hardly likely to be pro-Daily Mail, as such, having been featured generally unfavourably by that newspaper in the past (2016) but it is no worse than the rest of the msm; and often more informative.

My Arabic is inadequate; in fact it scarcely exists: only enough to do things such as order coffee [see https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/03/07/when-i-was-not-arrested-in-egypt/] but one can get most of the short clip above without a translation. Very sad.

“Lockdown” protest

Time was when you could speak freely at Speakers’ Corner, Hyde Park. In fact I myself spoke there to fickle crowds a few times (in 1978, if memory serves). Not now. (((They))) have killed free speech. At Speakers’ Corner. In print. Online. Toytown police state.

Coronavirus, “lockdown”, and the toytown police state (that might become a real police state)

It is alarming. For example, Devon and Cornwall Police: “On 1 April, Devon and Cornwall Police released a statement saying that, regardless of the guidance from both the National Police Chiefs’ Council and the College of Policing, it would not be changing its position on people travelling by car to a place for exercise. ‘Our interpretation is that it is not reasonable, for the majority, to drive miles to a specific place such as a beauty spot. It is also not within the spirit of what we are trying to achieve if you drive from Devon to the coast of Cornwall for surfing, regardless of whether that is “lawful” or not.’”

In other words, the Devon and Cornwall Police, among others, are going to try to “interpret” the will of the Government, and apply that, regardless of whether that has the force of law or not

https://architectsforsocialhousing.co.uk/2020/05/12/the-state-of-emergency-as-paradigm-of-government-coronavirus-legislation-implementation-and-enforcement/

The above is a good example of the Common Purpose attitude (“Leading beyond authority“) which has infected the police and public services generally over the past 30 years: the police actually purporting to decide what is the law, and even saying, straight out and brazenly, that they are going to allow or disallow X, Y, or Z whether X, Y or Z are lawful or not!

https://www.cpexposed.com/about-common-purpose

Then there is the police “nark on a neighbour” idea, which at one time was attracting nearly 6,000 quasi-Stalinist denunciations daily!

The island of sheep

John Buchan once wrote a book, one of his least famous, called The Island of Sheep. It was an adventure thriller set on an island full of (real) sheep. The sheep I am talking about here, though, are metaphorical sheep (aka some British people) and “the island of sheep” is Britain.

Look at the tweets below, from a woman who thinks of herself, looking at her Twitter profile and “pinned tweet”, as an independent thinker…

yet she tweets thus:

She displays no real thought at all. The latest estimate was that 24 people a day in London, a city of about 9 million inhabitants, are being infected with the Chinese virus. That is 3 people out of every million living in London.

Another example?

Very “Soviet”. Government decides, journalists then obediently transmit and explain the decision to the broad masses…

In fact, that is more or less what has happened up to now, but this shambolic government of fools, led by a part-Jew public entertainer who seems to live an unmeritedly charmed life (so far), is floundering, driven more by public relations than by “the science”, let alone common sense.

She shows herself, like so many on Twitter, and particularly the pseudo-socialist ones (this lady herself is in fact a supporter of Corbyn-style Labour), as almost begging to be told where to go and not go, what to do and not do. She is brainwashed by the “virus” scare to the nth degree. “Independent”? About as much as any marionette or automaton…

Actually, I should not spend too much time on this lady, though she is typical of so many on Twitter, but she is rather “the gift that keeps on giving”:

As a child in the early to mid-1960s, I was only ever given Lucozade (the original one, in a large glass bottle with yellow cellophane wrapping) when unwell. It was thought to aid recovery and maybe it did, because it was indeed high in glucose. Where the tweeter above goes wrong is in saying that Lucozade caused obesity. Hardly. Most children only had about 2 bottles a year, if that!

I see people like that on Twitter daily, the ones who think of themselves as thinking people, often (as in her case) socialist or rather pseudo-socialist (well-meaning perhaps, so be it…). They make about 9 silly points for every 1 good point.

 

 

Diary Blog, 10 April 2020

First thoughts today

Listening to Radio 4 Today Programme, as I write. An elderly lady was called by her GP and more or less forced to agree to forgo treatment if she became unwell by reason of bloody Coronavirus! So much for the NHS! All the rabbits “clapping for the NHS” are zombies as far as I am concerned. Yes, the NHS is a very good idea, yes many of the staff —not all— are also very good, but the NHS is not only underfunded but maladministered, and seems to have the corporate attitude “like it or lump it”.

We (i.e. as a society) have had to accept (though many prefer their illusions) that the NHS is actually not better than the health services available to people in most other European countries…Indeed, it is often nowhere near as good.

What is happening in the UK is that all of our cherished illusions about our own society are being tested to destruction. Bluntly, the NHS is letting people suffering from anything other than Coronavirus die, while prioritizing (some of…) those suffering from the virus, which people however cannot actually be cured or even treated (except by administration of oxygen or air).

Other institutions in the UK have also been found wanting. The police, in particular. We have had Derbyshire police using drones, spying on elderly fell walkers  and then “shaming” them on Twitter. We have had the police of various forces, including Devon and Cornwall, setting up road blocks to snoop on whether the journeys of motorists are “necessary”. We have even had one particular “muppet”, the Chief Constable of Northamptonshire, saying that his “officers” (police woodentops) may start to rummage through the shopping trolleys of people leaving supermarkets to “check” whether this or that item bought is “essential”! This is not only the behaviour of a police state, but of one that has lost its mind! A Toytown police state and a poundland KGB.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8207393/Sales-Easter-eggs-wine-barbecues-paddling-pools-soar-ahead-four-day-break.html

Here’s another police “muppet”:

In the South West, Chief Superintendent Ian Drummond-Smith, police commander for Cornwall, warned non-residents to stay away from the area.

He said: ‘Our officers will be patrolling this weekend, firstly on the M5 and A30 in an attempt to prevent visitors from entering the force area, and then locally to enforce the restrictions.

‘We will do so in a fair and balanced manner, but travelling down to the West Country is a serious breach of these restrictions and those doing so can expect to receive a fine.‘”

[Daily Mail]

So how long before we need “internal passports”, in the manner of the Soviet Union?

The police are now making up the law, making up their own powers, as they go along. Lord Sumption, former Supreme Court justice, has now remarked about this unlawful arrogation of power by the police.

I was talking a few days ago to a lady of my acquaintance, aged about 90. She likes to drive her little car to a coastal car park, usually (on weekdays) containing about 3 cars, elderly couples sitting in them and gazing at the view, or strolling on the grassy clifftop. Well, now the local council has taped off that car park, and the police have put some kind of stupid “Stay at home, Protect the NHS” bs notice there. Does that in any way stop the spread or supposed spread of the virus? No. So why do it? Petty jobsworth zombie behaviour.

Other long-cherished British illusions have also been cruelly exposed as illusory or exagerrated. One is that the UK is “a society under law”. Courts are either closed or operating as “virtual” courts, in which the justice available is also often “virtual”, meaning more apparent than real. Some district judges (paid magistrates) have been behaving like poundland Judge Jeffreys clones.

Government too. It seems like they too are making it up as they go along. Floundering idiots posing as “statesmen”

There’s a massive scare campaign going on. I myself thought, at first, that Coronavirus was a huge threat to Europe and the world. I have been on a journey (one which most, it seems, have yet to make). I now have a very different view.

Let us look at the deaths from Coronavirus in the UK: so far, about 8,000. That is out of about 70 million inhabitants. In other words, about one person out of every nine thousand, so far.

Coronavirus does not affect all people equally, despite what the government is saying in what amounts to a propaganda campaign. In the 1980s, when AIDS first emerged, the System claimed that it, too, was a threat to “everyone”, when in fact HIV/AIDS was almost entirely confined to a few groups: gays engaging in anal sex, sub-Saharan Africans, persons given contaminated blood, to a lesser extent other blacks and browns. It was thought impolitic to speak the truth, that heterosexual European (white) people, especially persons of Northern European race/ethnicity, were almost certainly not going to get HIV/AIDS no matter what they did in bed or elsewhere (so long as they avoided the groups already mentioned).

At this time of year, in the UK, about 10,000-11,000 people die every week as a norm. Coronavirus has increased that by about 500. In other words the increase, i.e. increase on the norm for this month’s average over the past 5 years, has been —is— about 5%.

https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/datasets/weeklyprovisionalfiguresondeathsregisteredinenglandandwales

The Today Programme had some “expert” on, talking about the “risk” to certain age groups. However, that was the risk of being infected, not the risk of serious illness, let alone death. Most people infected with Coronavirus are unaware of being infected with anything, or have mild symptoms commonly also suffered via other conditions, or have distinct symptoms but recover after a week or two without any medical intervention at all.

At present the risk of being killed in the UK by (or with…) Coronavirus is about 1 in 9,000. For anyone under 70, bar a relative few with particular and serious pre-existing health conditions, the real risk is nearer to 1 in 40,000, if that. For those under 40, the risk of death is vanishingly small. For anyone under 20, we are talking about one chance in a million, or several million. Lightning-strike territory.

Incidentally, the Radio 4 Today Programme bimbo who did its superficial little piece about Oberammergau this morning made a few schoolgirl errors:

  • While the “Black Death” was a form of Plague, and basically bubonic plague [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Death], it was current in the mid-14th Century, peaking around 1347-1351;
  • the bubonic plague did recur in Europe and elsewhere [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Death#Recurrences] but
  • the Oberammergau Passion Play dates from an outbreak of plague in Bavaria in 1634 and was not, as such, the “Black Death”. Also,
  • contrary to what the Today Programme bimbo said (and so thinks), 1634 was not in the “mediaeval” period!
  • The international Jew lobby forced the people of Oberammergau (I think around 1990) to take out from the Passion Play the bit of the Gospel text where the Jews choose the robber zealot Barabbas to be granted clemency (instead of Jesus Christ), they then crying out to Pontius Pilate, “let His Blood be on us and upon our children!”

The Nazi leader meets children in the small town in Bavaria. Picture evidence of the controversial visit to the religious play is scarce but an unseen photo album created by one of the actors in the 1934 performance has now emerged for sale

[above: Adolf Hitler says hello to a couple of local young children at Oberammergau, in 1934]

“Lockdown”?

Look at this graph:

View image on TwitterThe West has shut down its economy to try to flatten the curve, but it is arguable what effect this has had on the medical or health situation. The effect on the economic situation, however, is more easily determined. Dire…

Image

As can be seen, the UK will be one of the hardest-hit economies, down by about 27%. Interestingly, Germany is forecast to do even worse. Our time is coming. We’re back!

In fact, even the medical or public health questions are not straightforward:

No doubt the rabbits and zombies will keep on “clapping for the NHS” as it falls to pieces. Anyone not clapping will be noted and subjected to online “shaming”…

Paranoid? Maybe, but who would have predicted that, in 2020, UK police would be intimidating citizens walking in their own gardens, or in local parks, or stopping people taking a harmless drive or motorbike ride on an early Summer day? Who would have predicted the the police would use loudhailers and/or drones to bully sunbathing girls in parks or on empty beaches, old ladies resting on park benches, middleaged couples walking on deserted moors? Who would have predicted that police would threaten to check people’s shopping to snoop on whether, in the opinion of the police “officer”, the items just bought are “essential”?

It is natural, though mistaken, to assume that those “working in the NHS” know better than, say, me about Coronavirus etc. Mistaken because, though not a medic, health specialist or scientist, I have recently at least read things written or said by leading (real) experts in virology, epidemiology etc, which most people, inc. most NHS people, have not. About 2 million UK residents work “in the NHS”. Everything from lawyers and accountants to cleaners and porters, as well as, obviously, doctors and nurses.

Most of those people, though mostly no doubt competent in their own work, know as little –or less– about “Coronavirus” than I do. The few who have a better claim are the tiny handful who are virologists, epidemiologists and genuine experts in allied fields.

I am not going to be shouted down, either by “me-too” conformists, whether they be the usual Twitter mob or others, or by “people who work in the NHS” (unless, as aforesaid, genuine experts— and who in any case hold differing opinions inter se).

Britain in the political near future

I do not have the means to start a new political-social movement, in fact I have fewer means than almost anyone in the UK in financial terms, but it must be done, and soon. Before very long, by the coming winter, the time will be right, the situation ripe. It will spread like a wildfire once started.

Peter Hitchens is ahead of the curve here. He sees that [what we think of as] “normal” is over, probably permanently. Europe (not just the EU) is heading for a massive depression. In 1945 the USA was able to regenerate Europe in economic terms, using the Marshall Plan, but now the USA may well hit the economic buffers as hard as Europe and so be unable to help (and probably unwilling, to boot).

By the way, many people think that the reason that Germany (West Germany) pulled ahead of the UK after WW2, at least after about 1956, is because Germany had Marshall Plan money and the UK did not. This is, in fact, yet another myth of the period. A very convenient myth for many in the UK.

In fact, the UK not only did have Marshall Plan aid but had more of it than Germany. The greatly undervalued historian Corelli Barnett examined that, inter alia, in his works:

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

Barnett has made the point that Britain post-1945 had a choice:

  1. To maintain its Empire; or
  2. To regenerate its industry and economy generally; or
  3. To create a Welfare State.

Barnett’s view is that the UK had the possibility to do one or perhaps two of those things immediately, but not all three. Britain tried to do all three things simultaneously…

One might cavil that a welfare state could only be maintained by a functioning economy anyway. True, but what is a “functioning” economy ? What is a “welfare state”, indeed? Present-day Cuba has at least the bare bones of a welfare state despite being economically a “basket case”. Wriggle room exists. There are questions of definition.

A few more tweets seen:

Public attitudes and government decisions can be simply mad, deluded…

Yes, I am talking about the Coronavirus situation (“crisis”, “scare”, “scam”, “emergency”…you choose).

However, this has happened at various times in human history and not only in relation to “pandemics”. Take the First World War. It is common knowledge (and so probably wrong) to say that WW1 started because, once one empire started to mobilize, the others had to follow suit or be rolled over. Trite. There are elements of truth in that view, to be sure, but when we ask why the war both started and then continued for over 4 years, the answers are absent.

If you read the books of the period, such as the John Buchan stories, Greenmantle etc, you see that there was a panic, an absence of reflection, as well as a moral certainty that the British (or, in their countries, Germans, or Russians) had the moral high ground.

In fact, the First World War need not ever have happened, had people really thought.

Now look at the Coronavirus situation, eg in the UK. No-one knows much about the virus, though scientists are learning now. We know that it is transmitted in water droplets, eg if someone sneezes or even breathes. It is not transmitted in air, as such, so people sunbathing in parks or walking in the Peak District are not going to get it that way, or give it to anyone. Likewise, no-one can transmit the virus by driving around alone or riding a motorcycle. Has that knowledge changed government advice or police actions? Not a jot.

On the other hand, it is known that the UK “lockdown” (same elsewhere) is going to depress the economy and all but kill it for years, decades. Does that change the mind of this government? Not a jot…

Greggs

Here is an example of the madness now abroad:

https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/greggs-gets-150m-keep-afloat-18071223

So…what has happened is that the well-known bakery shop chain has been given the right to draw on £150 million of public funds over a year. Despite it being merely a retail outlet. Despite it having closed all 2,050 of its shops.

Almost all the 24,900 staff have been placed on “furlough”, meaning that the government (and taxpayers) will be paying 80% of their pre-furlough pay; Greggs is allowed to pay the other 20% of their previous pay level but in most cases will not be doing so.

What about the head of the organization, oneRoger Whiteside? Oh, he’s OK, because he is of course not being “furloughed”… and has decided to take 80% of his usual pay of £1,503,440, i.e. £1,202,752! Coronavirus Britain, 2020…

https://gb.wallmine.com/lse/grg/officer/1704952/roger-whiteside

Is this a good use of £150M of central funding? I think not.

Stanley Johnson

Seems that the public have seen through that nasty little con-man, Stanley Johnson, father of Boris-idiot:

https://twitter.com/search?q=%22Stanley%20Johnson%22&src=trend_click

Stanley Johnson tried to get elected as MP, for the second time, in a new constituency, Teignbridge (Devon), in 2005, but failed (he came in a poor second). Voters described his appearance at a hustings with “Boris” as “a couple of public entertainers”, and unimpressive.

Talking of “unimpressive”, news now of that horrible little pissant, Robert Jenrick:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8206255/Cabinet-minister-Robert-Jenrick-seen-visiting-parents-lockdown.html

Carrie Symonds

I suppose that the person most pleased that Boris-idiot is recovering is his fiancee. I am sure that her main concern was and is personal, but it must have occurred to her that, should Boris die (from any cause), she would be left dependent on her own resources, though I believe that her father is wealthy anyway.

In fact, Ms. Symond’s situation is a cautionary tale for other young women who, pregnant or not, are not married to what was once termed their “significant other”. Indeed, “Boris” is still, as I write, married to Marina Wheeler (his second wife), I believe, though divorce proceedings were instituted some time ago.

Had Boris Johnson died from Coronavirus his week, Ms. Symonds would have been entitled to not a penny of his estate, unless Boris has made a will in her favour, or a codicil to an existing valid will. In fact, Ms. Symonds would not even be allowed to stay at Downing Street and would be removed fairly swiftly.

I note the above not because I feel sorry for Ms. Symonds, who has wealthy connections and at least some monies of her own, but to caution others who are in similar non-marital relations (perhaps quasi-marital, so be it) and who are poorer than this lady.

When I was at the Bar, though I did almost no directly family law-related work (and in fact never even studied Family Law at university or Bar school), I did encounter the occasional similar story. I even met one lady, aged 40, who had been in a relationship for 20 years, had two or three children and lived with her quasi-husband in a house bought many years before via a mortgage. A married life in all but name (they did marry a few years later) but, had the husband died before the actual marriage, there would have been some headaches, especially financial, for the lady in question.

Priti Patel

Downing Street is under growing pressure to explain the continued absence of Priti Patel from the government’s daily coronavirus press conferences.” [Daily Mail]

It is quite obvious why her colleagues do not want Priti Patel there. She is as thick as two short planks and, unlike some others (eg Iain Dunce Duncan Smith), unable to conceal the fact.

Police “muppets”, version 2, 3, 4, whatever…

Now Cambridgeshire Police have had to “clarify” why one of their officers “checked” supermarket aisles to see whether the slaves of finance-capitalism, oh, sorry, no wait….the citizens of the UK’s “free country” had been buying “non-essential” items (which, btw, is not unlawful anyway., not even in the new Coronavirus Police State…). The woodentop even tweeted about it! Dumb police woodentop klaxon…

My thoughts about this latest unpleasant absurdity from our uniformed zookeepers…I mean the police:

  • Why is a policeman wasting his time on duty “checking” anything lawful on private shop premises?
  • Why is that police narcissist tweeting about his activities?
  • Does the woodentop actually know any of the law(s) that he is supposed to be enforcing?
  • Does the woodentop in question know that he cannot simply make up laws and his own (in this case, non-existent) powers as a  police constable?
  • Why does Cambridgeshire Police employ someone as a constable (I presume constable…God, could he be a sergeant?!) who a. seems devoid of common sense and b. seems to be power-mad?

Cambridgeshire Police say that the “officer” was “over-exuberant” and “has been spoken to”. Really?…So why are you, you police “muppets”, even employing an “over-exuberant” idiot who also seems to have no idea of a. the law, b. the limits of the law, c. the limits of his own powers as a police employee? Has the “muppet” recently come back from a taxpayer-funded “Common Purpose” course where he was told to “lead beyond authority“?

Common Purpose is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1989 that develops leaders who can cross boundaries. This enables them to solve complex problems both in organizations and in cities.

I think that a few things will need to happen down the line. First thing? Find a suitable wall…(make that “walls”…there are 85,000 Common Purpose “alumni” worldwide, many of them in the UK).

More tweets seen

…and look at this ridiculous police bimbo! [from South Yorkshire Police] [link to video to see said policewoman]

Not only does this (more or less) female police “muppet” from South Yorkshire Police argue with and try to bully people standing in their own garden (!) but approaches them, shouting in their faces, behaviour which really might spread Coronavirus…and yet the idiotic policewoman tries to lecture the householders (incorrectly, at that!) about the virus! One of the householders is standing inside the doorway of his own house!

and this

Watch that too [above]. Stunning. Toytown police, this time from Wales. Three police “muppets” harassing a man out walking his dog in a deserted park. The policewoman (who is leading this farce) tries to claim that the man (fully clothed) is “sunbathing” (which he is not, and that that is illegal (it is not).

Anyone for a conspiracy theory?

It occurs to me (usually after a beer) that this Coronavirus thing is being used as an experiment to see how far the public will wear being told to stay in their little boxes and spin…

Another conspiracy theory

The Chinese government started the Coronavirus pandemic in order that the West would shut down its economy. After shutting down one province for a while, China then re-emerges, to take over much of the crippled world.

I suppose that the flaw in the above theory is that, without Western nations to which to export, China’s own economy will fall flat… In other words, China would be cutting its own throat.

Twisting the theory again though, one recalls that someone (Pat Nixon?) asked Chou-en-Lai what he thought of the French Revolution. Answer: “it is too early to say“. Could Pat Nixon really have asked such a question? The point, though, is that, of all peoples in the world, the Chinese take the long view.

As with most conspiracy theories, one ends up in a wilderness of mirrors…

Q&A session, Daily Telegraph:

Fly fishing is a solitary pastime. Am I allowed to partake of this as part of my exercise regime? I have to drive half an hour to get to the river but once there, I will not see any other people.”

Daily Telegraph: “No. It is not exercise and you have to drive to get there. The Government has been clear that it does not want people to drive anywhere to spend time outdoors.

Is there no-one in government, police, or the msm with the nous and courage to stand up and say “THIS IS BULLSHIT! DRIVING SOMEWHERE DOES NOT SPREAD ANY VIRUS. FISHING ALONE DOES NOT SPREAD ANY VIRUS! SUNBATHING ON UNCROWDED LAWNS OR BEACHES DOES NOT SPREAD ANY VIRUS!”? Apparently not. We are no more free now than Soviet citizens were, it seems, and there is no “free Press” or radio or TV worth a plugged nickel. Temporary, of course. Or is it?

As for the police, I do not know what is more irritating, the fact that some police are exposing themselves as petty and power-mad bullies, or the fact that Britain’s police (including their commanders or top brass) seem so utterly stupid and devoid of commonsense.

Latest government bs

They are talking about extending the “lockdown” bs for another three weeks! Maybe even longer! I hope that the zombies and rabbits, all clapping etc, think to blame themselves and also this government of incompetents, when they emerge blinking into the sunlight in May, June or July, for the fact that they have lost their jobs and maybe homes because of the unproven “lockdown” policy. I was not completely against it for a brief period, a week or two, but it is now going to destroy the UK economy, society and any remaining civil rights.

Music, to soothe the savage breast…
