Saturday quiz

Image

Not so good this week: I scored 5/10, though that was still enough to beat political journalist John Rentoul, who scored only 4/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 3, 7, 8, and 10.

Getting the public used to doing what System figureheads tell them will be (supposedly) best for them; a psychological experiment on the grand scale. Conditioning the public, as with the facemask nonsense, just as stage hypnotists do.

One more example of why SIS/MI6 should be radically reformed, and most of its careerists sacked.

Alison Chabloz

Readers may be aware that persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, faces yet another trial (and, once again, after a complaint by a Jewish person).

It has now been decided that the trial will be held on 18 February 2022. I believe that the forum will be Westminster Mags Court. I do not have information as to likely duration of trial. Presumably one day.

I doubt it, judging by the students and recent graduates who appear on quiz shows such as University Challenge (some, often foreign students, are better), and (a fortiori) The Chase. I happened to see an old Chase (I think from about 2012 or so) yesterday. The contestant was a girl law student from up North somewhere. Her ambition? “To be a barrister like Shaun [Wallace].”

The contestant was very ignorant; dire. She was knocked out. I wonder whether she became a barrister. Probably. It is hard to fail, now. The Bar is pretty much a dustbin these days.

I might add that Shaun Wallace, the “Chaser”, usually billed by the presenter (Bradley Walsh) as, inter alia, “legal eagle and barrister”, is probably a good deal better at quizzing than at law [see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaun_Wallace#Law], and was up before a Bar Disciplinary Tribunal only one day before me, in October 2016. My own “trial” was —of course— not about ethics and competence but about my views on society: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

Quiz shows and similar msm entertainment often have people who are better at being on TV than at their supposed main or former activities. On The Chase, the main “Chaser” is Mark Labett, “The Beast” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Labbett], who (though billed on the show as “the man mountain of maths”), achieved only a Third in mathematics at degree level (at Oxford).

Another similar case is the once almost ubiquitous Carol Vorderman [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carol_Vorderman], who at peak was making £1M a year from TV (mainly). Despite having a reputation as highly intelligent etc, her degree (in Engineering, at Cambridge) was only a Third-class, and indeed she was awarded a Third class in every one of her three years there.

Paper qualifications can only take you so far, and sometimes a step back can later result in two steps forward. Had Carol Vorderman achieved a (thanks to award inflation, now all but inevitable) “First”, she would probably have got a good job somewhere but missed out on her TV opportunity, and her (ultimately) £1M a year pay.

As for radio loudmouth Julia Hartley-Brewer vowing “not to forget” about the treacherous MPs and their behaviour, does she mean she will actually do anything about them? No.

Empty words, then, and words that will have no MPs quaking in their boots.

That statistic includes non-whites, so the figure for white British women (especially with equally-white British men as fathers) will be well below 1.5.

You carry in your blood the holy inheritance of your
fathers and forefathers. You do not know those who
have vanished in endless ranks into the darkness of the
past. But they all live in you and walk in your blood upon
the earth that consumed them in battle and toil and in
which their bodies have long decayed.

Your blood is therefore something holy. In it your parents gave you not only a body, but your nature. To deny your blood is to deny yourself. No one can
change it. But each decides to grow the good that one has
inherited and suppress the bad. Each is also given will
and courage.

You do not have only the right, but also the duty to pass
your blood on to your children, for you are a member of
the chain of generations that reaches from the past into
eternity, and this link of the chain that you represent
must do its part so that the chain is never broken.

But if your blood has traits that will make your children
unhappy and burdens to the state, then you have the
heroic duty to be the last. The blood is the carrier of life. You carry in it the secret of creation itself. Your blood is holy, for in it God’s will
lives.” [SS Verlag: material for instruction of the Hitlerjugend]

Humanity needs a quantum leap in its evolution. It can only do that by having a foundation worthy of the new people. The white Northern European peoples have to evolve to a level where they can be the foundation for that quantum leap. Nothing is more important.
