I recall when I returned to the UK from the USA in the early 1990s and was trying to launch myself as a practising barrister out of rather rackety chambers in London. Through a series of odd events involving people from the former Yugoslavia, I had met a lady who lived in Hampstead Garden Suburb. Though not Jewish, she knew a number of wealthy Jews in Hampstead and elsewhere. She had been a high-flying model many years before, and had been on the cover of magazines such as Vogue. She had lived in Switzerland and in Montreal, and her style might be called “cosmopolitan wealthy”— a big Mercedes, furs, jewels etc.
We became involved, and she wanted to help me get work (legal cases) via wealthy solicitors that she knew. She told me post factum about one with whom she lunched, and to whom she had recommended my abilities. A Jew, his first question in reply had been to say, “is he Jewish?” Obviously, my girlfriend replied in the negative. Needless to say, no briefs came my way from that one.
Well, there it is.
“Diversity is a strength“…oh, no…wait…
Sad, and slightly infuriating, though tweeter “@JasonPedlow” is wrong in saying that the said pensioner could “obviously” get Personal Independence Payment [PIP]. In fact, the very opposite is true— he obviously could not, because he is, on the facts as given, a pensioner, and a claimant has to be under State Pension Age to apply for PIP: see https://www.gov.uk/pip/eligibility. He could, however, apply for Attendance Allowance, worth rather less than PIP but still worth having: see https://www.gov.uk/attendance-allowance/eligibility.
Said pensioner would also be entitled to Pension Guarantee Credit: see https://www.gov.uk/pension-credit/eligibility. That would also confer, in principle, further benefits: maybe housing benefit, if he rents where he lives; also various one-off government payments.
Having said all that, it sounds like the said pensioner is a bit of a dimwit, worrying about what non-existent or unimportant people might think about him collecting various benefits, or worrying about some absurd “principle” invented in his own head. At a time when the Government has thrown away billions, hundreds of billions, on the “panicdemic”, on “Ukraine” (the Zelensky regime), on the importation of millions of blacks and browns and others etc.
Some people actually wilfully deprive themselves, and often pointlessly.
Yes. The poorer Ukrainians are stuck, either in the war zone or in the collapsed society and economy brought about by the Zelensky regime.
Most of those in the UK now are just ripping off whatever they can.
Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer is basically a System drone, so of course he opposes proportional representation. Also, it looks possible that Labour will achieve a majority in 2023 or 2024. Short-term thinking, of course.
As for the graphic re. public ownership, it is clear to me that what real British people want, if only unconsciously, is social nationalism.

In fact, tweeter “Spriter” has got it wrong this time.
In international law, the once-accepted theory of “extraterritoriality”, i.e. that the territory of an embassy consists of the territory of the sending state (the state to which that embassy belongs) has not been accepted for many decades. The currently-accepted theory is that an embassy (building with grounds) is on the territory of the accepting state, but that privileges and immunities attach to both the embassy site and (in varying degrees) to its diplomatic, administrative, and technical/logistical staff.
The England of 1966 (the last year before my family moved to Australia when I was 10) may not have been a Garden of Eden, but it had something the England of 2023 does not have; it also did not have quite a lot that our present society does have— and which is so hateful.
We are not just facing opposing “ideas” or “policies”, and are not just speaking up for what is right, and/or as a contrary social or political bloc. We are facing new forms of Evil in much of the world, especially the advanced “Western” world. Evil must, eventually, be vanquished directly. That time will come. A titanic battle for race, culture, and civilization.
Looks like San Francisco is even more of a jungle now than was portrayed in The Streets of San Francisco.
I have never been there, though I knew a few people who did visit, and who liked it, but that was then… 1970s and 1980s.
“So far this year there have been 39 murders in the city. The San Francisco Police Department is currently experiencing a shortage of 541 officers.
Twitter and Tesla CEO Elon Musk was among a host of tech leaders hitting out at the lawlessness in the wake of Lee’s slaying, writing on Twitter: ‘Many people I know have been severely assaulted.
‘Violent crime in SF is horrific and even if attackers are caught, they are often released immediately.’
Locals told DailyMail.com they blamed the ‘soft-on-crime’ progressive policies brought in by the likes of former District Attorney Chesa Boudin, who was tossed from office in a recall election last year.
‘It’s too liberal. Too much. And we’re paying for it,’ said one. ‘Repeat offenders are back out on the streets in a heartbeat and there’s nothing we can do about it. We’re scared.’
Incidentally, “Bernardine Dohrn was born Bernardine Ohrnstein in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1942, and grew up in Whitefish Bay, an upper-middle-class suburb of Milwaukee. Her father, Bernard D. Ohrnstein, changed the family surname to Dohrn (his middle initial plus the first letters of his last name) when Bernardine was in high school.
Her father was Jewish, although the name change was intended to obscure that.”
Is London not going the same way as San Francisco?
Yet no less than 458 utter mugs, as of today, are still sending “Jack Monroe” a total of several thousand pounds every single month via Patreon. Why that should be, I have no idea, though quite a few people tweeting in her favour (the ones who are not “Jack Monroe” herself using “sock accounts”) seem either not terribly intelligent, or seem to be mentally…er…odd.
Looking beyond the exact pictures shown, certainly largely true of the past couple of thousand years; however, equally obviously, looking at the central caption, there are exceptions in various parts of the world, mainly in east and south Asia.
All the same, true overall, as well as re. the pictures shown.
“Just before my father died he told me a story of his time in france serving with A squadren 1st sas. The same story was told to me after his death by one of his old mates who was with him at the time. Their job in france was to sabotage transport, communications, weapons. etc. in the day time they would live in the forests. Making their way back from a hard night blowing things up, they came across a group of french resistance soldiers who had captured a young German soldier. The German was very frightened, he begged the sas to take him with them as he said the french were going to make him dig his own grave and shoot him. One of the sas men said joking, lucky they don’t shoot you then make you dig your grave. The French weren’t very happy when the sas took him but they did. They told him that if he tried to escape the French would kill him. Every night the sas would go out and do their job and when they got back the German would have a brew waiting,as he was happy to be alive. When they flew back home they took the German with them. They had done their job and saved the life of a young German soldier. My dad’s friend also told me that the German soldier had attended an sas reunion many years later. This breed of soldier is fast dying out. I hope these stories will live on lest we forget them.”

Stopping the invaders from invading would require firm political leadership, powerful armed forces and the willingness to use them, and both political and naval/military leaders who really love England and are going to fight to stop it being trashed further. None of that exists at present.
In fact, looking at this country now, it is almost a hollow space, without real content. Look at any major aspect— police, MPs and fake “peers”, legal system, msm, NHS.
In any case, “her lawyer” (if any) has not sent a letter (whether “strong“, not so strong, or apocalyptic and written in Hebrew on stone tablets) to Con Party MP Lee Anderson.
Another day, another “Jack Monroe” lie…
“Jack Monroe” is, or has become, a fraudster, basically (and far worse than I thought when I assessed her on the blog at the end of September 2022). Having said that, the non-practising doctor tweeting in support of her, Julia Grace Patterson, is not much better.
The 631 utter mugs still sending her between £3.50 and £44 a month via Patreon will no doubt continue to collude in their own mugging, though…

The flow of migration-invasion would be curbed if either a. the boats were destroyed in the Channel, along with the invaders; or b. the invaders simply disappeared after reaching the UK, never to be heard of again. Either of those measures would deter others from trying to invade.
A general feeling of “end of an era”, as in 1939 and 1914…
Can you imagine what the remains of our culture and civilization would look like (and will, unless we take charge soon) if only blacks and mixed-race half-castes were to exist? Think Mogadishu, Haiti, most of Africa, but on a larger urban scale. Just the remains of civilization and greatness, half-reduced to rubble, and the untermenschen crawling over the ruins.
That “Dr Freya Vass” (a teacher of dance, apparently) sounds like a complete loony, like most of the “Jack Monroe” partisans.
The whole long thread about Serebriakova is rather interesting. A feeling of Doctor Zhivago about it.
The tweet went the same way as that “Bootstrap Cook” blog post which claimed that she had been “waved through” the police cordon at Grenfell Tower in West London, and (armed with the “building plans“, no less!) more or less took over the rescue etc.
Remarkable for someone who was not, at the time employed by any fire service, or any other emergency service, and who lived about 60 miles from the fire— in Essex, where (for a year or so) she had answered the telephone at a call centre for the Essex fire brigade.
How could she have had the “building plans” for Grenfell Tower? Simply impossible.
That blog post was a remarkable exercise both in fantasy writing, and in trying to create an entirely false story. Some of her fans actually believed it, incredibly.
It emphasizes the psychological (narcissistic) need “Jack Monroe” has for placing herself centre stage. The big story of the time was the Grenfell Tower fire, but that happened 60 miles from Southend, and there was no nexus at all between it and “Jack Monroe”, so she simply invented a scenario in which she was right at the centre of events— striding purposefully through the police cordon to take charge of the emergency. Ludicrous, but some people believed it.
I agree. While one does not expect the editor of The Grocer, Best magazine, or even the Metro, to be particularly aware or intelligent, what can be the excuse of the editors of the Guardian and the Observer?
As blogged before, though, I would be surprised if the msm kept on, for very much longer, promoting the nonsense of the “Bootstrap Cook”, despite her numerous “personal connections” etc.
Take away the fake titles from them, at least. She is a mulatta, who was previously married to a Californian Jew business parasite; “Harry” is as thick as two short planks, and mentally unstable. Both hate Europe’s peoples. Reduce their pretensions to rubble.
Constitutionally moot, but I take that tweeter’s point.
The “role of Government” changes along with circumstances, or should do.
I do not know what I despise more about Therese Coffey— her callousness, or her stupidity (read my assessment above); perhaps even more than those, her sense of (completely unmerited) entitlement.
As Lenin said, “a revolution without firing squads is not worth much“.
Labour has no real answers to Britain’s problems, but this present government is just so useless that it would take a miracle to save it, looking at its deadhead ministers, about which the public is surely now fully aware.
In my opinion, using that situation (assuming that it is true) to deflect questions about the money she is alleged to have taken from vulnerable people, and in return for basically nothing. “Jack Monroe”/”Bootstrap Cook” has already tweeted (in order to fill up her Twitter timeline with supportive messages) about 1. polishing a copper kettle, and 2. her new hairstyle.
It seems to me that the “Bootstrap Cook” has been dropped by most of the msm now, but wants to hang on to those (as of today) 641 Patreon mugs, all paying her between £3.50 and £44 a month, every month.
The puzzle is why the mugs do it, now that the facts are becoming better-known.
I myself have no idea whether “Jack Monroe” is so mentally disturbed that she scarcely knows the truth from untruth, or whether she is consciously “pushing the envelope” quite often, and actually mocking her “patron”-mugs by making up ever-more outrageous untruths; examples would include pretending to have been involved in investigating the Grenfell Tower fire, and boiling down soap to make shower gel and so (supposedly) save money.
“Prosecutors said those detained formed a ‘terrorist organization with the goal of overturning the existing state order in Germany and replace [sic] itwith their own form of state, which was already in the course of being founded.’
The suspects were aware that their aim could only be achieved by military means and with force, prosecutors added.
Some of the group’s members had made ‘concrete preparations’ to storm Parliament with a small armed group, the prosecutors said.“
An interesting straw in the wind. In 1923, the “Beer Hall Putsch” in Munich was regarded by many in Germany with derision, yet less than a decade later, Hitler and the NSDAP were in power.
The idea, put about by well-publicized “enablers”, that a person can be fed on about £5 a week, is just nonsense. Even leaving aside the need for a balanced diet, with many vitamins and minerals, a pack of cheapest pasta is (I think) about £1, which might last someone a couple of days. The cheapest sauce would be at least £1, even if you made it last a week. That leaves £3 for everything else. Bread for a week must cost £1 if not £2. What else could you get? A jar of peanut butter? A pack of cheap butter? A couple of pints of milk? A couple of bunches of bananas?
While having little income (at first no income at all), I had to find food for myself while also finding a new contract (job), while somehow travelling around London (mainly to the City of London from Holland Park “borders”, near Shepherd’s Bush). I have to admit that it was hard going and, without being too detailed, I concede that I did “cut a few corners” here and there. Needs must…
He expected an Albanian, a diplomat at that, to “answer a straight question“? Ha. Hope truly does “spring eternal“, at least in rhetoric.

Lee Anderson is not exactly my kind of MP, but I prefer him to the likes of Diane Abbott.
Ironically, the contrary might be the case, if it means that the Border Force (or Border Farce) take a break from “rescuing” (ferrying to the UK) the migrant-invaders in the Channel. Assuming that the weather becomes more stormy.
True, but private soldiers and junior NCOs do get or can get free or subsidized accommodation, food, transport etc (unless that has changed; I believe that it was the case, anyway).

Weird LGBTQXYZ types buying babies for some kind of vanity, or from crazed wish-fulfilment motives. Has to be wrong.
A great part of the problem in the “West” is that those very pillars of liberty under law have been eroded, largely by the embedded Jew-Zionist element. It may be objected that other elements are also involved, and guilty, and that I do not deny, but the main rot in the whole system is the Jewish-Zionist element.
A Jew-Zionist dictator, whose government is admitted by its own spokesmen to be “80% Jewish“. A dictatorship that has closed down opposition parties, imprisoned or killed dissidents, closed down trade unions, and attacked Russian civilians in the Donbass for 8 years. The Jew Zelensky also has several opulent villas in the West, including one valued at USD $40 million in Florida. A complete puppet of the NWO.
Overall comment on recent political events and on the new Government
For me, one of the major aspects, looking at both the Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak Cabinets is the sheer mediocrity, at best, of the Cabinet ministers appointed by both Truss and Sunak (several appointed by the former have now been reappointed to various offices by the latter).
Here we have a country of 60-70 million inhabitants, a country with a long and distinguished history, and which has produced more for the world, arguably, than most if not all others [including, among hundreds of examples, the Industrial Revolution, trains, hovercraft, jet aircraft, radar, modern sanitation etc], and the best our political system can throw up (so to speak) is this pack of idiots? In the old Private Eye caricature of the newspaper editor Bill Deedes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Deedes], “shome mishtake, shurely?“.
Brexit was badly mishandled. How to save it? First thing is to stop arms, ammunition, and money going from the pockets of British taxpayers to the dictatorial regime of the Jew Zelensky in Kiev.
Second necessary thing is for Britain to withdraw trade sanctions against Russia, restore full trade links and, also very important, cultural links. This will benefit Britain hugely, especially now that the EU, USA, and other states have pledged to intensify trade sanctions. An open field for British commerce, with little competition.
Third thing would be to distance the UK from NATO.
In return, I have no doubt that Russia would supply gas at cost, or even below cost, to the UK; a direct pipeline could be constructed. Britain would thereby stave off both energy shortages and high prices.
The above would not, of itself, solve the problems in dealing with the EU single market, but would mitigate them.
I have discussed previously on the blog that “Jimmy Carr Destroys Art” show, created by Jews at Channel 4, and featuring grinning little monkey and tax evader/avoider Jimmy Carr. Don’t want to waste any time on the bastard today.
Incidentally, though, perhaps I should add that I despise the concept and actuality of Jimmy Carr Destroys Art for wider reasons than simply because one of the works of art destroyed was by Adolf Hitler.
I would not, for example, want to destroy Jewish art, such as the works of Chagall, or even the degenerate contemporary “art” of moneygrubbing “artists” such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, who are not Jewish themselves, but their work heavily promoted by the wealthy and well-connected Jew, Charles Saatchi: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Saatchi.
Actually, the German Reich did not, as a rule, destroy what it considered “degenerate” and/or Jewish art; it actually held exhibitions of it, as educative for the people.
Exactly. The Jews at Channel 4 who are behind Jimmy Carr Destroys Art, and the “woke”/”antifa”/Jews/etc who watch it and like it, just want to go “ha ha! That’s one relic of ‘Nazism’ gone!“. It panders to a love of destructiveness, especially on the part of the Jew-Zionist element.
Even those who, like me, commend the basic principle behind National Socialism, would not (I certainly would not) say that Hitler’s youthful paintings are “great art”. They are mostly no more than competent. There is no argument for destroying them, however.
As for Eric Gill, a perverse person, but his art is interesting and also significant for its role in its time period. You could say much the same of many great artists of the recent and further past.
In the end, there will be only one way to eliminate the evil “woke”/”antifa” etc from society.
I applaud mercy on the part of sentencing judges, in principle, but not when justice itself is cast aside.
Look at that non-sentence, very typical of today.
It sometimes “seems” that, unless the case is one of murder or terrorism, or tweeting/blogging a few criticisms of the Jewish influence in the UK (eg in the cases of Alison Chabloz or Jez Turner), it is all but impossible to get imprisoned in the UK, no matter what you do to other people.
When I was living intermittently in New Jersey in the early 1990s, I was invited to lunch by American friends of someone I knew at the Bar in London. The three Americans were all partners of a small law firm specializing in shipping and insurance.
When I arrived at their office in downtown Manhattan, near Wall Street, a small group was just leaving, including a bearded Jew wearing a skullcap.
The American lawyers explained that that group had been there in connection with a matter involving insurance, in which matter the people I was visiting were on the other side. The bearded one was said to be a rabbi, who owned commercial property in Brooklyn. I was surprised. I was unaware that Jew rabbis were allowed to own, or did own, business enterprises.
My American hosts laughed and told me that the rabbi was suspected of having had the building in question torched for the insurance. “We call it Jewish lightning!“, they explained.
My religious education was enriched further by another encounter at that office: I met another lawyer who came in and had a cross on his forehead, marked out in ash. I asked what that was, and was told that it was to do with Lent in the Eastern Orthodox church, the lawyer concerned being a Lebanese Christian [https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/article/meaning-cross-ashes-ash-wednesday]. New York City, the melting pot…
I had never seen that (the marking of the forehead), nor even heard of it, previously.
A memorable day also for the interesting lunch that followed, held at an old New York club (I think not now in existence, though), called the New York Drug and Chemical Club, and founded by the leaders of those industries a century or more before, but now situate 50 or more floors up in a skyscraper. Interesting to eat clams and drink Bloody Mary cocktails as the odd helicopter slid by the window (silently), en route to the East River Heliport. A New York experience not had by most visitors to the city.
A year or two later, I hosted the same Americans when they came to London on business. We went to the unique (and now also closed down) Luba’s Bistro at Yeoman’s Row, Knightsbridge, one of my regular haunts back then.
Bring your own wine, beer, or vodka, and enjoy their unchanging 1950s menu, an eclectic mix of Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Georgian, and a bit of French, all consumed in a crowded restaurant where you would be seated near (and I do mean near) the next table of diners, who might be anything from a Church of England canon (accompanied by young blonde wife) who was “an honorary archimandrite of the Eastern Orthodox Church” (overheard by my then girlfriend), to Soviet types who might or might not have been spies of some sort.
Happy days (I suppose).

Was interested to hear a TV reporter in Ukraine, either Sky News or BBC, give the Ukrainian view of their Lukansk defeat, then add something like “if that can be believed“.
At first, months ago, anything the Ukrainians (Zelensky regime) put out as “fact” was naively believed, even patent nonsense such as the non-existent “Ghost of Kiev” fighter ace. Those lies were retailed to the public, and affected the Western public perception of what was happening, and the reaction of Western political leaders.
Now, reality begins to set in. The forces of the Kiev regime in Eastern Ukraine are running out of soldiers, ammunition (especially for artillery), artillery itself, and fuel. The Russian forces are now gradually carrying out a large-scale strategic or positional operation which will end with the occupation of all of Ukraine east of the river Dnieper.
Conservative sleaze MPs
Funny to see demands that Boris-idiot should explain why he wanted appointed the apparently-appropriately-named Chris Pincher to the position of Chief Whip from having been Deputy Chief Whip (inter alia, the guardian of Con MPs’ morals and ethics). It is obvious, surely? “Boris” wanted someone morally-compromized, who would therefore be lax in passing judgment on Johnson’s own perennial activities.

Why nothing works in Britain any more
The UK is being run down as fast as the transnational conspiracy can do it without causing mass disorder…
The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan (conspiracy) calls for the effective genocide of white European people, especially White Northern Europeans, and their replacement by blacks and browns. The method? To encourage mixed-race relationships and breeding. The endless mixed couples seen on TV and in ads are part of this, the idea being to normalize the mixed-race idea in the minds of, mainly, children. The Conspiracy is playing a long game.
Who has not noticed the gradual slide in standards, in all areas? Britain is gradually sliding to a black/brown level of society. This is no accident, though.
The unusual billionaire has apparently been “invited” to appear before a Commons committee re. his acquisition of Twitter.
Needless to say, most MPs are in the pocket of the Jew-Zionist lobby, and that lobby is worried in case Twitter starts to allow freedom of expression again after years of repression (my own Twitter account was removed at the behest of a pack of Jews in 2018).
I saw this online, an extract from a newspaper report:
“While not legally required to appear before the committee, those asked to give evidence are expected to attend.
Facebook’s Mark Zukerberg previously sparked outrage after refusing to appear before the DCMS committee.
He sent his deputy in his place.
The social media entrepreneur was threatened with “contempt of parliament” – a charge that carries no penalty – for not attending.
Mr Zuckerberg was asked to appear to give evidence as part of an inquiry into disinformation and fake news.
It is yet to be seen how Mr Musk will respond to the request from the Commons committee.”
My two emphases point out the sheer uselessness of the present Parliamentary system.
In other words, if Musk puts up a finger at that silly little committee, they can do absolutely nothing about it.
I hope that Musk does just that.
It reminds me of a report I saw, I think in the Sunday Times magazine in the 1990s, about the visit of a UK Parliamentary delegation to the hi-tech areas of California, where meetings with various technical experts and entrepreneurs had been arranged. After the meetings, the impressions of the Americans were sought. One put his view of the MPs very succinctly: “yawningly-dull Little Englanders”…
As to my own Twitter account (“permanently” “suspended”), the only reason I could see for reviving it would be in order to post a link every day to my blog. We shall see.
The imprisoned satirist and singer-songwriter is today spending her 25th day in prison since she was sentenced on 14 April 2022 (for lampooning Jewish behaviour). The effective custodial part of her sentence is 77 days, so by early tomorrow she will have passed the one-third marker. Expected day of release (unless she is granted bail pending appeal) is 30 June 2022.
“Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has said he will quit if given a fine by Durham police for breaking lockdown rules.” [BBC News]
Either Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer will resign, or not; if he does, then some other puppet will take over. Effectively no change.
It is clear from the recent local elections that the public are thoroughly sick of the shambolic and corrupt maladministration of part-Jew clown “Boris”, but that alone is not enough to make people vote “Labour”-label.
There is every chance of an indecisive result to any general election which, in any case, may not occur until late 2024. Maybe Starmer has just had enough and would like elevation to the (like everything else now) misnamed “Lords”.
