Britain, where nuts are treated as serious protesters


This is what Britain has become; it has descended into a place where any nut with a hammer and a narrow view of history can destroy a statue, a painting, a mural, or some other artwork, while the politically-correct and hugely-ignorant police stand around doing nothing, and as other ignorant persons applaud the vandalism online or otherwise.

As for the nut himself in this case, some cigarette-smoking “chav” type, he apparently shouted out to passers-by, including women, who were telling him to stop vandalizing, that they were “paedos”. What can one say?

Eric Gill [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Gill] certainly was perverse, but so have been many other artists of note. Gill’s art is not 100% to my taste either, but that does not necessarily mean that it can just be destroyed by the first idiot that turns up with a hammer and a contrived grievance.

Society is built on order. There are worrying signs in the UK that disorder is slowly taking over, and I am not talking only about idiots vandalizing statues or artworks.

Upcoming Southend West by-election

It is not worthwhile blogging about the upcoming Southend West by-election in any great detail, because the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties are boycotting the event out of “respect” for the assassinated MP whose death triggered the by-election. That means that, as with the by-election at Batley and Spen held some years ago after the Jo Cox assassination, the voters of Southend will be denied the array of choice (however false) that they would usually have.

Not even Green Party and Reform UK (the latest Farage vehicle) will be standing candidates.

Wikipedia has opened a page about the by-election, which is set down for 3 February 2022: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_Southend_West_by-election.

As can be seen on Wikipedia, a number of minor candidates are standing. Two of at least passing interest are Steve Laws (UKIP), well-known for his reportage tweeting about the continuing cross-Channel migration-invasion, and Jayda Fransen (standing as Independent, but formerly a member of two or three parties).

I have blogged about Jayda Fransen in the past: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/09/11/diary-blog-11-september-2020-including-a-few-notes-about-jayda-fransen-and-her-new-british-freedom-party/.

Southend West has been held by the Conservative Party since its creation in 1950, the Con vote peaking the following year at 69.1%.

The MP elected in 1950, 1951 and 1955 was the very wealthy Anglo-American, Henry “Chips” Channon, famous for his indiscreet diaries [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Channon]. His rather mediocre son, Paul Channon, “inherited” the seat and was elected in a by-election in 1959, holding the seat thereafter until 1992, when David Amess was elected on a vote-share of 38.8% (LibDems second on 33.1%). In every subsequent election, Amess’s vote never dipped below 46%.

In 2019, Amess was elected with a solid 59.2% of the vote (Labour second on 28.1%; LibDems third with 11.4%).

In the by-election, The Conservative Party candidate, one Anna Firth, a barrister and Sevenoaks District Council councillor [https://www.linkedin.com/in/anna-firth-095271202/], has tried to reach the House of Commons on two previous occasions. Looks like it will be “third time lucky” for her.

I could not see Anna Firth’s name on the chambers’ website for the set with which Ms. Firth is supposedly connected (Hailsham Chambers), so it looks as though she is no longer there. The Daily Mail and Linked-In also mention her as CEO of an “e-learning” organization (some kind of taxpayer-funded “social enterprise”, it appears), so maybe she is no longer in active practice at the Bar at all: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10299379/Conservatives-select-candidate-Southend-West-election.html.

There is minor interest around this by-election, in seeing firstly what vote-share Ms. Firth will get, in the absence of any real competition; also, as to the number of protest votes going to UKIP’s Steve Laws and to Jayda Fransen. Steve Laws may do better than Ms. Fransen; we shall see.

Stupid idiotic puppet.

Exactly what I was thinking yesterday when I saw the monkeyhouse on TV, and then Boris-idiot exiting to his car, in the open air, black muzzle-mask in place.

What goes around comes around..

She has a point. I agree with her. The very few MPs I have met in my life have mostly been pretty stupid; in fact they have all been.

Parliament, like the NHS, the Bar, the Church, Oxford and Cambridge universities (in fact, most universities), the trade unions, and much else in Britain, is running on empty.

Someone in public life who seems not to be a complete idiot. There must be some mistake…

It has taken the msm about 20 years to catch up with me, or to where I was.

Latest opinion polling

I recently blogged that “Boris” would not survive beyond the summer of 2022. Looks like I should have written “Spring”…

Exactly. The same phenomenon, or a similar one, seen from 2017 to 2019 continues: many voters with nowhere to go, as shown in the graphic below.

If only there were a credible social-national party. It might have been able to really launch in the past two years of a headless Government and an equally-clueless Labour-label “Opposition”.

Late afternoon music

The German Reich and the Soviet Union fought and died, the Reich quickly in 1945, the Soviet Union slowly over decades. It was a fated and fateful encounter. There is today no reason, good or otherwise, for Europe, including Eastern Europe, to exhaust itself in terror and bloodshed.

Very picturesque, even if the music (by Shostakovitch) added for the amateur YouTube video is anachronistic (I think that the film itself is from the famous 1960s War and Peace).

I prefer the (Khatchaturian) music in the video below:

A concert in Dresden in 2011, 76 years after the devastating Allied air attack. How resilient human beings can be.

Obviously meant to be Boris-idiot and Andrew Windsor. Conceptually very good, but as caricature not so good; I would not have recognized them.

It would be a fatal error to imagine that that could not happen. All serious wargames since 1960 that postulated use of tactical nuclear weapons have ended up with strategic nuclear weapons being used.

What would that mean in the UK? First, sudden and deadly Spetsnaz attacks by lethal special forces units on ground targets in this country— early-warning stations, ports, air bases, transport infrastructure, Internet infrastructure, and on heads of state and government. Then nuclear attacks on the same, if still in one piece.

Russia is about 72x the area of the UK. Nuclear attacks on Russia by NATO (mainly USA) would cause undreamt-of destruction, but Russia would survive, and rebuild, even if it took a hundred years. Were the UK to be attacked with nuclear weapons, almost all of the country would be flattened. Britain might not survive in any recognizable form.

The whole idea of Britain joining the Americans in war with Russia is mad. Why do it? So that Jew oligarchs can continue to exploit Ukraine? So that Ukraine, which prior to 1991 was never an independent state, can keep its present borders, which contain —especially in the East— large numbers of Russians and pro-Russians? So that the New World Order can expand its power?

Britain, disastrously, went to war in 1914 and then in 1939, both times for no good reason. Not again, I hope.

Steve Laws is standing in the Southend West by-election on 3 February 2022. I would normally not recommend a vote for UKIP, but in the absence of any real social-national candidate, Laws deserves at least a protest vote, if anyone there is going to vote at all.

Diary Blog, 16 October 2021, with a story about Lenin in exile

Saturday quiz


Well, this week I scored 7/10, beating political journalist John Rentoul, who managed only 2/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 6, and 8.

…or to put it another way, no System parties inspire much enthusiasm among voters.

Oh. I only knew of him as someone in favour of better animal welfare, and I myself support that…

Where are the new Ned Kellys?

Quite. The “average joe” may “know” that there was “a” Russian Revolution, but what he [thinks he] “knows”, he knows only because somewhere in his mind is a misunderstood or part-understood conflation of biased and simplistic school lessons, and a general milieu in film and other msm output of to the effect that “the Tsars and aristocracy, living in luxury, burdened the workers and peasants, who then overthrew them and supported Lenin and the Bolsheviks“.

Not that there was no grain of truth in that. All big lies (such as the “holocaust” farrago) have to have some basis in reality, however slight. Russia before (and after) “the Revolution” did have terrible social problems, exploitation etc, which before 1917 included absentee and rentier landlords, and a social system that paid little heed to the poor.

The devil is, of course, in the detail. Few (even those today professing to be “fully-automated luxury Communists”) seem to know that there were many shades of opinion in pre-1917 —and, for a while, in post-1917— Russia. Many parties. Many tendencies.

Few know that the “real” Russian Revolution, as such, was in February 1917 (March 1917 in the new calendar), and that that Revolution was itself overthrown in October (old calendar) 1917, by a coup d’etat or palace revolution planned by Lenin and the Bolsheviks, and carried out as a military operation; it was a putsch in one or two cities of a vast empire, not a popular uprising, as many now think, and as the Soviet system propagandized via the films of Eisenstein.

[Ten Days That Shook the World, English-language-subtitled version of the 1928 silent film Октябрь (October), by Eisenstein: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October:_Ten_Days_That_Shook_the_World]

The original soundtrack (originally played in cinemas) is now replaced by the 1966 one written by Shostakovitch, which uses music of his tone poem October, and which forms also part of his 12th Symphony, The Year 1917:

Of course, even today, relatively few people realize that the second “Russian Revolution”, i.e. the Bolshevik coup d’etat in the Autumn of 1917, was basically Jewish. Almost all the leaders of the Bolsheviks were Jews, or (like Lenin) part-Jew. Even Churchill, though later himself totally in the pocket of the Jews, at the time (1917-1918) wrote articles in the Morning Post (at the time, the favoured newspaper of the UK aristocracy and wealthy) about it. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Morning_Post#Controversial_publications.

I was told, at second-hand, a story about Lenin in exile. I knew a lady, born 1926, whose father had been a Graf (Count), and an German aristocratic hereditary landowner in East Prussia, the area abutting the Baltic, and now split between Poland and Russia (Kaliningradskaya Oblast, the region around former Konigsberg [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6nigsberg].

The Graf was descended from an early master of the Teutonic Knights [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teutonic_Order] and his estate near Danzig [after 1945, Gdansk, and a “Polish” city] comprised over 20,000 hectares, or about 50,000 acres. The mother of the lady I knew came from Austria, where her family also held estates.

The lady I knew was related via both father and mother to a number of historical figures, including Metternich [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klemens_von_Metternich] and Mannerheim [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Gustaf_Emil_Mannerheim].

The father of the lady I knew was sympathetic to socialism when a student in Vienna or Munich, or Zurich (I forget now which of those I was told, I think Vienna). He was apparently acquainted with Lenin, who was in exile in that part of the world (he was certainly in both Zurich and Munich at the time).

Whichever city it was (as I say, I think Vienna, though possibly Zurich), Lenin was arrested, but was released on the intervention of said well-connected student and his diplomatic contacts.

“Irony of Fate”: the father of the lady I knew was shot in 1939 or 1940 by either the Red Army or NKVD, during the upheavals in the Baltic region (they were travelling at the time by car from Romania). The estate near Danzig was finally taken over by the forces of Sovietism in 1945, and became a hospital, then an agricultural college.

The lady I knew (who had been taken prisoner/hostage by the NKVD in 1939 and was confined in Siberia/Northern Kazakhastan for three years before escaping…a long story) was able to revisit her childhood home, now in Poland, in the mid-1990s. She stayed in Sopot [former Zoppot] in the hotel she remembered visiting in childhood: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Hotel,_Sopot].

A sentimental journey, and no doubt a bitter-sweet one.

[The Grand Hotel, Sopot —former Zoppot—, now part of the Sofitel luxury hotel chain]

Life goes on, even after the most enormous upheavals…

Still milking it…


Jews get “restitution” of property (and/or other payments), property supposedly confiscated by Germans in the late 1930s, or early 1940s, but non-Jews get nothing in compensation for land or whatever taken by Soviet or other forces, despite having held that land for centuries (as contrasted with the recently-acquired monies or commercial properties etc allegedly taken from Jews in the interwar period).

Ha ha! About time that malicious and mentally-afflicted troll got lost. See: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/18/theyre-coming-to-take-me-away-ha-ha/.

Perhaps he woke up to the fact that few people are interested in his malicious and unpleasant tweets anyway; or maybe he just forgot to take his medicines today.

The only thing that gives me pause is that many such online nuisances… trolls, wastes of space, whatever… make a big noise about “giving up the Twitter account”, then slink back a while later. Many trolls have done that in recent years.

In fact Twitter is a waste of time now. Most of the interesting accounts (such as mine, if I say so myself) are gone, in my case because a pack of Jews conspired together to make (as they do) malicious complaint about my tweets. That was in 2018, at which time I had about 3,000 Twitter followers (equivalent to maybe 6,000 today, had the account remained), whereas I see that “Slatfascists” still only has 2,358, three and a half years later. Not that “followers” mean much. In fact, the real influence of Twitter (as I have blogged before) is very limited.

Still, “Slatfascists” (who may or may not have been “doxed” recently) still has the privilege of reading daily (or, as he no doubt describes it, “monitoring”) my blog. He has read me since I started blogging in 2016, and can still do that when he goes back down the rabbit-hole.

As a matter of fact, my guess is that “Slatfascists” will be back on Twitter before long, just like so many others. After all, what else interests him (apart from reading my blog, and rubbing his hands when someone like Alison Chabloz gets prosecuted)? Apparently, playing some absurd “space cadet” electronic game…

Still, Twitter will be at least marginally more pleasant for his absence (as long as it lasts).

[“Get down there, where you wanted to send me, you unclean spirit!”]

[Late-night update: it seems that “Slatfascists”, or at least his Twitter account, has “gone up the chimney”. Good riddance, but it means that his above tweet cannot now be seen, because the account has been deleted, not merely locked. For those who did not read it earlier, the tweet said that “Slatfascists” was leaving Twitter temporarily or permanently because Twitter would not expel all the accounts he (daily) “reported”, who were, he alleged, all “Nazis”.

I always thought that “Slatfascists” had to be at least part-Jew. His obsessions, his behaviour etc…

Oh wellHow many green bottles does that make, about to fall off the wall?].

[Update, a day later: as I predicted, “Slatfascists” was unable to stop trolling, and is already back online…unable to stick to his “resolution” even for 24 hours. A weak-minded little troll with nothing to say about society]

Sometimes I wonder what is the proportion of the mentally-afflicted in the UK population now; must be huge, and on Twitter (especially pro-“antifa” Twitter, they seem even more prevalent]

300. Meaning probably 500 or 1,000 overall. Even on the lowest likely figure, that is at least 100,000 a year (and on the highest, maybe as many as 400,000), just from those crossing the Channel in an armada of rubber boats. Yes, fewer in the winter months, but more in the summer (up to 2,000 a day; and this government of Jews, Pakistanis and Indians does nothing but talk. What a surprise…

A lesson taught, though in view of the fact that the aggressive black got up immediately at the end, arguably not enough of one.

A sign of the times…
