Radio 4 Today Programme

Heard half an hour of what used to be called the BBC’s “flagship news show on radio”. Do they have the cheek to still use that description? I hope not. Terrible. Dull in the extreme: Covid Covid Covid blah blah, Covid Covid Covid blah blah. Rubbish presented as news and “analysis”. Pathetic.

Rachel Reeves, the pro-Israel lobby MP (nominally “Labour”) was on, talking about David Cameron-Levita, Boris Johnson, and the breaking of the Ministerial Code. All very earnest, superficially, and I am sure that a few people in the Westminster Bubble were interested, but not 99% or more of the British people.

BBC Four

Now it seems that the BBC may be about to kill off or ruin one of the few decent parts of the BBC still left, television station BBC Four. Typical. The BBC must be defunded. It is more or less “Soviet TV” now, just a craven mouthpiece of the government in power. It has lost all legitimacy and credibility.

Interesting discussion. Britain should have a scientific institute akin to the one-time SS-Ahnenerbe [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe]. Part of such an institute would be for research into history, archaeology, heredity etc, but another and equally important part would be devoted to research into ways to evolve humanity in general and European/”white” people in particular to higher levels; in other words, the creation of higher race-forms in every way. The “design” of a higher race, if you like.

Believe it or not, the bastard being discussed is David Cameron-Levita! I thought that there could scarcely be a worse Prime Minister…until Theresa May and then Boris-Idiot came along. All three part-Jew, by the way… [addendum: I have now been told that the PM under discussion was in fact Blair. “Best PM ever“? I think not! A complete NWO/ZOG puppet, whose hastily-passed laws and policies still impede us today].

Startling ignorance of course, though rather highlighting the Hitchens “Oxford” obsession (he lives there). Not everyone knows the sex of even famous people, if the names are unusual.

When I started Bar practice in London in the early 1990s, I was given one of my relatively few Crown Court cases (I always did more public, administrative and civil law, as compared to criminal).

The case involved the sale of counterfeit tapes, and was set down for trial, to be heard at Snaresbrook Crown Court. One of the artistes allegedly copied was Shabba Ranks. My first question to the clerk at Chambers was “who’s she?“. Not a good start (it’s a “he”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shabba_Ranks).

That was not my first Crown Court trial (the first having been a case of “s.18” GBH, aka “GBH with intent”, a serious charge carrying a maximum sentence of life imprisonment), but it was at any rate one of the first few.

I was always lucky in the Crown Court, partly because, as a mainly non-crime barrister, I never graduated to the really serious criminal cases such as murder, terrorism etc. The most serious cases rarely result in acquittal, because the evidence is usually very strong and often overwhelming.

Well, anyway…more by luck than judgment, I did manage to do OK in my counterfeit tapes trial, after (on the first morning), the Prosecution told me that they were discontinuing (on the ground of cost, the cost of proving via forensic science that the tapes concerned actually were not genuine). Thus my defence, based mainly on an arguably implausible alibi, was never tested.

Incidentally, I was also lucky in that “GBH with intent” trial, held in what was then the Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court (the building in Parliament Square now occupied by the Supreme Court of the UK). In that trial, the defendant, despite having stabbed the thuggish “victim”, and then having poured boiling oil over him, was acquitted on the ground of self-defence.

Late tweets

This is more or less what has happened in the past 13 months in respect of the “virus” panic in the UK.

Hard to believe that tweeter “@TimothyNerozzi” is serious but, as Cecil King once said, no-one ever lost money by underestimating the good sense of the British people (it might have been “the intelligence of”…); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Harmsworth_King.

We have a rotten Government and an equally ridiculous official Opposition, but the idea that “the House of Windsor” could rule autocratically is beyond satire. Who exactly? The almost 100-year old Queen and Consort? Charles and Camilla? Surely not Andrew or Edward? The tame thick princelings, William and Harry? I suppose that at least Andrew and William could fly away, piloting their own helicopters, when it all went wrong…

We think of the Wall and the Stasi when we think of the GDR. But few are aware of the political correctness, the children stuffed into nurseries while their mothers were marched off to wage-slavery, the comprehensive schools and the contempt for the church.”— Take away the Wall and the Stasi and the rest is pretty much the same as 2021 Britain. Maybe that is the point that Hitchens is trying to make, in fact…

It always makes me laugh when some uncultured, semi-educated “antifascist” idiot and/or Jew calls social-national people “knuckledraggers” or the like; low culture, education, or intelligence is at least as common, I would say far more so, on the so-called “antifascist” side.

Mental illness is also very prevalent on the “antifascist” side; I have even blogged about it: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/18/theyre-coming-to-take-me-away-ha-ha/

Diary Blog, 18 February 2021

Chekhov had a point. It might be argued that in contemporary Britain, and in North America, there is at least no “premature old age“, but maybe there is: true, people are living longer in years, but at the same time a strange double-aspect is seen.

The young today are careful, cautious, scared of what they are indoctrinated into being scared of, meaning “the virus”, “racism”, “sexism” etc; even taking any risk at all. In short, they often seem to exhibit traits of caution and even fearfulness, traditionally the preserve of the middleaged and, indeed, the elderly.

The other aspect seen would be a kind of juvenile attitude to life, seen in the adult, even in the middleaged. The obsessive interest in (in the UK) soccer football and (in the USA) American football. The playing of video games, computer games by those aged 30, 40, even 50+.

Other symptoms? The whole “dating app” culture. The middleaged women, often divorced, who feverishly pretend to a lifestyle more appropriate (if at all) to girls of 18 or 20. The male equivalent, as well. Also, the lack of interest in anything of a serious nature, even in those who (via entitlement more than via merit, often) are in the highest positions.

Examples? It became notorious, during the disastrous years of the David Cameron-Levita governments of 2010-2015, that the Prime Minister of the UK spent what his own civil servants called “a frightening amount of time” playing games on his mobile telephone. If I recall aright, his favourite was one called Angry Birds.

Others in that evil yet stupid 2010-2015 government had similar tastes. One was the useless Ed Vaizey (like David Cameron-Levita, a part-Jew).

Now we have “Boris” Johnson, another part-Jew, and another with puerile tastes and behavioural patterns. Someone just posing as Prime Minister, as did Cameron-Levita.

The above may explain why it is hard to form a serious non-System political party worth anything. The young are more interested in complying with whatever they are told by the msm , or in whatever is said about them or their friends on various social media platforms. The older (25+) people are not much better, and the middleaged are mainly engaged in pursuits which are extensions of juvenalia.

Politics, especially radical/revolutionary politics, requires other traits: risk-taking, commitment to ideals and to a cause, a certain selflessness, a willingness by the individual to join with others for a noble cause, as well as anger at the way things are, and a determination to struggle to a better future.

The National Socialists of 1919-1945 had that; the Bolsheviks and other Communists had that; the milder socialists and social-democrats too. Without that drive and belief, everything just trundles on as it is, or perhaps gradually getting worse.

Ha. When living in Kazakhstan (1996-97), I used to travel up to the mountains with friends in their Lada Niva. I even drove it for short distances once or twice myself. In the UK, a few years ago, I thought of buying a secondhand one, but few were available and, crucially, the Niva only comes in standard shift, not automatic, and my present (UK) driving licence only allows me to drive automatics. Quite a good budget option for off-road, though.

I generally disapprove of capital punishment, as such (for spiritual-religious reasons, and because justice must be tempered with mercy), but there may be situations where a public hanging might do much to repress those who should be repressed.

Tweeting, blogging, vlogging, putting up no-hope election candidates, can only take you so far in the present and developing climate…

Ha ha! That reminds me when a Soviet citizen visiting London in the late 1980s saw the BBC TV News, presented by Moira Stuart [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moira_Stuart], and said to me, “not only a black woman, but one with a speech impediment!“…

What would he have thought of Britain in 2021?

G.K. Chesterton and M.R. James would have been interested, I expect.

Typical ahistorical nonsense

The tweets below are typical of the ahistorical nonsense that abounds today:

Tweeted by a barrister, one of them, so I suppose that younger people reading think it “must be right”. In fact, while it is true that women (and others) could be refused service in a pub, that almost never happened simply because a woman wanted a drink. The same was true of blacks. As for “being gay was imprisonable“…no, it never was, not in the UK, though there were offences committed if actual gay sex was indulged in.

As ever, the devil is in the detail, and in the words “legal right“…

Those tweets give a false picture.

I myself was once refused service in a bar, for having entered the saloon bar of a country pub, in Surrey, while wearing muddy Wellingtons. I, and the young lady accompanying me, had to move to the (equally empty) public bar, where the floor consisted of stone flags instead of carpet. That was in 1984.

Dominic Cummings

I repost my main blog posts about Cummings: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/01/03/dominic-cummings-a-government-of-dystopia-and-lunacy-posing-as-genius/; https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/

Tweets seen

What has been so extraordinary about the “resistible rise” of Cummings is that (ref. my blog posts about him) he actually has no track record of measurable achievement at all. Left university with a so-so degree, somehow got into Russian business (but nothing solid), tried to set up an airline in the 1990s using bits of decrepit Soviet property (the airline made one flight only). Then Cummings gets a job with the Conservative Party and somehow acquires a reputation for maverick brilliance. A mirage. In the old Soviet joke, “we hear that you cannot make an omelette without breaking eggs. Well, we see the eggshells, but where’s the breakfast?

I always believe in the Biblical injunction to “judge the tree by its fruits”. I judge an ideology by its effects and by the behaviour of its adherents. I judge a government by its acts, omissions and achievements. Look at the chaos of the present government, in every way!

Cummings is not entirely to blame for the present chaos, which is soon going to get worse, with mismanaged Brexit about to come down the line. Boris-idiot, posing as Prime Minister, is the main culprit. Others, such as Johnson’s “ho”, are mere extras in the drama, but have, in the absence of proper government, taken on the role of active players.

In fact, the “eminence” of Cummings is symptomatic of Britain at the present time. It is a situation that has developed over the past decade or so. The “not what you know but who you know” scenario. We have seen the emergence of the no-salary “intern”, able to work unpaid for a year or more (and so create the foundation for a career) because the affluent parents or a family trust pay for everything. We have seen the unworthy but well-connected, the privileged trustafarians etc, become MPs, ministers, Cabinet ministers, even Prime Ministers and members of the House of Lords. A few names? David Cameron-Levita, Ed Vaizey, Dido Harding.

In fact, the above is the flip-side of the likewise prevalent “identity” appointments: persons appointed to positions in government and/or as (very well-paid) TV talking heads because they are black, brown, female etc.

Every journey starts with one step…

I agree with that, but it has to be confined to bona fide and truly British citizens as recipients to be sustainable.

Life’s circus…

The Underground was better then (c.1950?), it seems…

The succinct reply sums up my own cynical view: Boris-idiot…

That reply, too…

Well, this week I again beat John Rentoul, I having scored 7/10 as against his 6/10; my score would have been 8/10, but the name of the German theologian of Question 7, though on the tip of my mental tongue, escapes me for the moment. In case anyone is interested, the other questions I cannot answer are numbers 2 and 9.

[update, 2 hours later: I remembered the answer to the “German theologian” question, but too late…Pastor Niemoller. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Niem%C3%B6ller].

Memory is a strange thing. I wonder how much research is done into it.

Google “The Great Reset” and you will discover why, “suddenly”, “reset” is seen everywhere! Google “conspiracy” at the same time…

BRINO (Brexit In Name Only) was always the most likely option for the international conspiracy.

Trump

Don’t get mad; get even” [American saying]

Trump should extend Presidential pardon to all social-national and allied prisoners held in U.S. Federal prisons. He should proclaim his intention as soon as possible, and pardon as many prisoners as he can while he can. It would be a good way of sticking it to the “antifa” swine.

“British” Christmas TV ads

I see growing discontent at the race-mixing propaganda posing as “just ordinary TV ads”. Christmas ads are just part of it. According to latest statistics, about 80% of the UK population still identify as “White British” and actual “blacks” (not including recent mixed-race) are supposedly “only” somewhere around 3%. Yet almost every TV ad now contains mainly blacks, or a mixed couple and “their” mixed-race children.

Sacked temporary teacher, serial grifter, “antifa” cheerleader (from a safe distance) and would-be (self-describing) “historian” and “journalist” Mike Stuchbery supports the propaganda:

Of course, Stuchbery sees nothing wrong in TV ads pretending that 90% of the UK population is black, mixed-race etc… This was my blog post about Stuchbery, which thousands have found interesting: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/

This is not mere happenstance. It is a deliberate and planned campaign. I have blogged about it in the past and it is getting worse. Google “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan” for more. Alternatively, “the Great Replacement” and/or “White Genocide”.

My blog from a couple of years ago: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/

I wondered whether the police would at some point take an interest in the GoFundMe appeal set up for Stuchbery by his associate “@antifashwitch”, Roanna Carleton Taylor of Derbyshire (it gathered in nearly £12,000 from gullible people who wanted Stuchbery to sue Tommy Robinson using it, but there never was a case brought). I now see that the Twitter tweets, going back years, of both “@antifashwitch” and her misnamed organization “@Resisting_Hate_”, have almost all been deleted.

I have no idea whether the two facts are connected, or whether she has been trying to delete potential evidence of fraud, but it has caught my attention today.

I expect the ~700 people who gave money to that GoFundMe [https://www.gofundme.com/f/sue-tommy-robinson] are wondering what happened…

I believe that “antifashwitch” has a rather “dodgy” background generally. Her personal connections have, if the Internet is to be believed, been investigated by the police in the past, and not just for political matters.

Incidentally, the Pakistani named in the GoFundMe appeal is or was, supposedly, the solicitor (a one-man-band “firm”) who was going to act for Stuchbery. All very odd.

Slava! Something has to be done directly about the Boris-idiot toytown police state which is inexorably becoming a real police state.

Not a new tweet, but worth reposting.

Are you still proudly self-congratulatory for having clapped, idiots?…

Quite. As for the UK, the rural/suburban area of coastal Southern England where I live has 180,000 inhabitants within the District Council area. In the last week, 3 (three) deaths “from” (or “with“?) “the virus” have been notified. One death for every 60,000 people! Statistical zero. Yet for this, the population has been forced to comply with the facemask nonsense, shops and pubs and restaurants (a large part of the local economy) have been shut, and any medical services from GPs are telephone-consultation only.

Madness.

Slava!

Was that connected with “antifashwitch” too? I have no idea.

Non-white Christmas TV ads

Further to my comments earlier in today’s blog, I received this comment from a reader:

I’ve noticed that the race mixing Christmas ads don’t mind showing an idealised England via small rural villages complete with a church in the centre, the catch is they don’t allow us to see a white family living there, it has to be mixed.

The problem is though, who do these multinationals think this nostalgia and yearning for an older England actually caters to? Is it the Indian wife in the ad? or the inevitable black husband of the white woman in another ad?

On the one hand they pander to the cultural identity of an ethnic group, while at the same time endorsing the erasure of that ethnic group via the mixing in the ads. 

Note once again that the nature of the multinational is essentially parasitic, those images of England aren’t of them…” [a reader of this blog].

Well said, Blog Reader…If it were the other way around, it would be called “cultural appropriation” and so “wrong” (because white European people are always wrong…). Such TV ads (propaganda masquerading as ads…) are much more an “appropriation” (if not an expropriation!) than, say, The Black and White Minstrel Show etc, who were copying a longstanding American and European tradition of “blacking up”.

Diary Blog, 13 February 2020 (including Cabinet Reshuffle)

Scameron

I was just thinking about the unholy mess Prime Minister David Cameron-Levita left behind him in various ways: Brexit, HS2, the cretinous “reforms” of Iain Dunce Duncan Smith etc. What a complete waste of space that Mischling Cameron-Levita was. Given credit by a stupid electorate mainly because his Eton and Oxford education (and family money) made him look the part.

Laura Kuenssberg

Listened to a brief piece by Laura Kuenssberg on Radio 4 Today. Two or three egregious mistakes. One was “secretary of states” (for a group of Cabinet ministers) when she meant to say or should have said “secretaries of state”. Paid hundreds of thousands a year yet cannot get basic English right.

Cabinet reshuffle

So far, some nasty people removed:

Ha ha! Now crazed Ayn Rand devotee and Jew lobby doormat Sajid Javid has “resigned” (read, ungrammatically, “been resigned”…). Good riddance. That’s his political career gone up in smoke. Hard to imagine the idiot climbing so high again. Another “Conservative Friend of Israel” gone (but then 80% of Con MPs are members, unfortunately). Ex-Muslim or apostate Javid was almost fanatical in his pro-Israel, pro-Jewish lobby stance, though. He even supported the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” criminals. Great news that he is screwed!

ds3

I am the wrong sex to be a tricoteuse (and cannot knit) but I am loving this, even without an actual guillotine beside which to sit. Tsar Boris is not someone for whom I have any respect, but (as the American blacks might say) “he done good”! I love a good chistka!

Mein Gott! The (born in UK) “Paki”, Sajid Javid, may have been kicked out, but only to be replaced by the (born in UK) Indian, Rishi Sunak! A former Goldman Sachs employee. His father-in-law is a hugely-wealthy Indian businessman. India is notoriously corrupt, its politics is corrupt. There is no need for the UK to descend to such levels. Why not —here’s an off-the-wall idea— appoint white British people to the Cabinet?…

NHS

The problem at the heart of the NHS is not really money (important though that is) but maladministration.

Robert Buckland

Confirmed in his job of Secretary of State for Justice, and Lord Chancellor. Surprising. I have heard him a couple of times on TV/radio. He does not really have the intellectual horsepower. Apparently, if reports are accurate, he used the word “epitome” on radio recently, but mispronounced it to rhyme with “Rome”…not what one expects to hear from a supposedly educated person, let alone a member of the Bar. Not even in these dumbed-down times (cf. Laura Kuenssberg etc).

Alok Sharma

Appointed Business Secretary. Born in India. He attended the same school as me, in Berkshire, but a decade later. When I was there, there were no Indians (though there were two half-Indian brothers, Anglo-Indians). Sign of the times.

Robert Jenrick

Jenrick is staying on as Housing Secretary. A smug little pissant, married to a Jewish lawyer and whose children are being brought up as Jewish. A complete doormat for the Jewish Zionist lobby. An enemy of freedom of expression.

Gavin Williamson

The former fireplace salesman, who plays with his pet spider while fantasizing about taking on Russia and China with his chocolate soldiers, is confirmed as staying as Education Secretary. A pathetic deadhead who would like to be Prime Minister. Our system of political selection and election is truly broken.

“Barrow-boy” Essex barrister and mouthpiece for the Jewish lobby. “Promoted” to Northern Ireland…Yeah, right…Bye…

Coronavirus

There is now a whole damage limitation exercise to propagandize us that China and its people and their habits are not to blame for these repeated waves of viruses which emerge from China, when China, its people and their habits plainly are to blame. Eating anything with legs, wings or fins, even if endangered species, not caring about animal suffering or depredation of wildlife. Screw the Chinese. There are far far too many of them on this Earth, which their numbers and habits are killing.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7999467/Chinese-encyclopaedia-teaches-children-animal-carries-SARS-coronavirus-rare-delicacy.html

Huang Yanzhong, a public heath expert at China’s Council for Foreign Relations, said that the sale of rare animals is deeply-rooted in Chinese culture, despite its illegality.”

“The freshness of one’s dinner is also prized, leading vendors to flog live animals, which are seen as a sign of luxury.” [Daily Mail]

Backward untermenschen.

Reshuffle

This comment by the LibDems about the appointment of Suella Braverman might just be the least credible thing said today:

Responding to the appointment, [Daisy] Cooper said: “Liberal Democrats will not allow this dangerous, authoritarian Conservative government to undermine the rule of law and erode individual rights and freedoms.

The LibDems are even more of a joke now than they were a few months ago. No leader, 11 MPs, no policies of any interest and, of course, no power.

The LibDems are not alone in being irrelevant at present. Labour is just a joke. All four contenders are doormatting for the Jewish lobby, none has much (if any) credibility. As for Corbyn (who he?) he is marking time as lame duck leader by staying in his comfort zone, yapping nonsense about the “rights” of Irish tinker “traveller” thieves and scavengers, and the deportation of Jamaican criminals etc.

Diary Blog, 12 February 2020

Regret truncated blog yesterday, 11 February 2020. Computer had to be taken away and powerwashed; it only now returns to the fray. All the same, the article on the recent “Islamist” terror attacks will be posted both here and on the diary blog for 11 February 2020 when finished.

[1800 hrs: see here https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/02/12/terrorism-and-reason/]

HS2

The HS2 decision is a very bad one, very obviously taken so that Boris-idiot can be seen to be doing “big things”. Environmentally harmful, a trashing of the green and pleasant land. So much even in transport could be done for £120 BN or more. New branch lines, robot ultralight train lines etc. Terrible.

The HS2 decision does show that David Cameron-Levita-Schlumberger’s faked-up “austerity” policies of 2010-2017 were driven purely by an ideology of repression. One day, that bastard (and Osborne, and Dunce Duncan Smith, and “lord” Freud etc) must be personally punished for their crimes.

Internet regulation

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7995191/Ofcom-powers-regulate-harmful-not-illegal-online-content.html

Here we have what this ZOG Cabinet is really all about: repression of free speech in the guise of both preventing “terrorism” and “protecting children”. The American cartoon below, several years old now, again hits the spot exactly.

Bso85QHCEAA1yun

A pathetic camp drone from the NSPCC was on Radio 4 Today Programme, supporting this evil ZOG policy. Wants as much “regulation” as possible. I’m sure that he does.

“Harmful content”? Yeah, right….We know what that means. Anything which is for a Northern European culture and civilization. Anything of which the Jew-Zionists disapprove. Anything against the “Great Replacement” of Europeans by non-whites. Anything that challenges the fakery and hoaxes of the “holocaust” farrago.

An example of public waste

Amy Lamé, paid £75,000 a year from public funds to do not very much as “Night Czar” for London. Sadiq Khan decided on this useless post and its generous remuneration (generous bearing in mind that this gigantic and unpleasant lesbian is actually doing other “showbiz” work of some kind). Much more than a nurse gets; more than some junior doctors get. What kind of sick society is this?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amy_Lam%C3%A9

 

Corbyn

Yesterday heard a little, on radio, of Corbyn in the Commons (on Monday, I think). Yapping about black criminals being deported (and how bad that is, apparently). So far about 17 of the bastards have gone. The rest will be released, it seems, to prey again. Anyway, 17 or 30 out of hundreds of thousands? It’s a drop in the ocean. And what about the “rappers” and “music” “artistes” who are encouraging violence towards (mainly) white people (the people formerly known as “English”)? They should be “offed” too, either to Jamaica etc or, well, just “offed”… Maybe I should “rap” about it…

So…Corbyn. I had all but forgotten that he is still posing as Labour leader. He failed to beat the Jew lobby in his own party, he surrounded himself with black (and brown and white) deadhead MPs. He made speeches in favour of the tinker “traveller” riff-raff, failed to take the fight to the Zionists in the UK and paid lip-service to the largely-faked “holocaust” farrago. Corbyn is just a joke. Kick him off his pedestal now, the useless brainless polytechnic lecturer and NUS politico! I could kick him off myself, he is so irritating! He (and political idiot John McDonnell, a slimy “me-too” poundland “Communist”) had a real chance to totally mainstream anti-Zionism, but failed to go nuclear when he might have won the election had he done so. Bin him.

The “Special Relationship” one-way street

Anyone who, like me, has lived in the USA, knows that the “Special Relationship” means little outside British TV studios, radio studios and newspaper offices. It is a one-way street. Quasi-colonial, with Britain as the colony. To hell with it.

Immigration attitudes

 

Fake charities

I have mentioned in many blogs the fake “charity” “Campaign Against Antisemitism”. Well, here’s another: “Institute of Economic Affairs”, here (below) represented by some callow youth who might be sent, usefully, to a labour camp where he can work for his pay or food instead of spouting about how UK citizens should become economic serfs of the uber-wealthy few.

Speaking of which, the “IEA” was one of about 150 (!) fake “think tanks” set up by an influential Conservative Party donor called Antony Fisher [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antony_Fisher], whose granddaughter Rachel Whetstone [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachel_Whetstone] was embedded for years at Conservative HQ, met her husband Steve Hilton there [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Hilton] and now does public relations for Uber taxis.

I just looked up the aforesaid “callow youth”, who is in fact 26!

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

Well, police officers look also young to me now! Seems that he is gay. Why are so many young Conservative Party persons gay? Almost all seem to be.

Les Eminences Grises…of Dystopia

It seems that the intellectual power behind the Boris Johnson throne is one Dominic Cummings, someone who only came to my attention recently. His new eminence put me in mind of a few similar people in the recent and not so recent past.

Brendan Bracken

Brendan_Bracken_1947

Churchill had the egregious Brendan Bracken as his adviser and amanuensis. Bracken was, as such people often are, very strange indeed. He was born into modest but not poor circumstances in Ireland, drifted around Australia, attended Sedbergh School at age 19 (though claiming to be just 15), paying the fees himself, then left after one term, having acquired what the later KGB would have called a “legend” as an Anglo-Irishman who had attended a well-known English school (he let people believe that had been there for years).

Armed with the Sedbergh “old school tie”, Bracken became a schoolmaster at Bishop’s Stortford College in 1921, but by 1922 was a magazine publisher and editor in London. He became wealthy quite rapidly. Puzzling. Here was a young man who had presumably saved some money while in Australia, and may have had a part-share in whatever his father left, but all the same Bracken’s swift rise to wealth is a puzzle. Still, there it is.

Having attached himself to Churchill, Bracken was instrumental at the vital moment when Chamberlain resigned in 1940:

When Bracken became aware of Churchill’s agreement to nominate Lord Halifax, he convinced Churchill that the Labour Party would indeed support him as Chamberlain’s successor, and that Lord Halifax’s appointment would hand certain victory to Hitler. Bracken advised Churchill tactically to say nothing when the three met to arrange the succession. After a deafening silence during which Churchill was expected to nominate Halifax, the latter obligingly ruled himself out and Churchill was put forward as Britain’s wartime Prime Minister, having avoided any appearance of disloyalty to Chamberlain.” [Wikipedia, and see Notes, below].

Thus this odd man “from nowhere” was not only present at the pivotal moment, but can be said to have altered the course of the Second World War on the strategic level. Had Churchill not become Prime Minister, Britain would have agreed peace with the German Reich in 1940. The whole history of Europe and indeed the world was thus altered in its course by this now-forgotten man (forgotten by the public, at least).

Bracken was MP for Paddington North (1929-1945) and for Bournemouth (1945-1951). He was Churchill’s PPS from 1940, later promoted to Minister of Information (1941-1945) and was briefly First Lord of the Admiralty in 1945. He was one of the chiefs of the Political Warfare Executive. He was elevated as a viscount in 1952. He was the publisher of, inter alia, the Financial Times, The Economist and History Today.

Bracken was rumoured to have been Churchill’s illegitimate progeny, though this seems to have been a myth not discouraged by Bracken himself. The viscounty granted was hereditary, but Bracken was unmarried and without issue. He died in 1958.

Was this the story only of a remarkably talented self-made businessman and politician or was there more to it? There are hints of the then-concealed New World Order about it all. We shall probably never know.

Steve Hilton

5078

[As with Cummings –see below— Hilton felt the need to display his “I’m an off the wall maverick genius” persona by wearing beachwear or surf dude getup to Downing Street…]

Wikipedia says of Steve Hilton the following:

Hilton is the son of Hungarian immigrants whose original surname was Hircsák[7] (which some sources spell “Hircksac”),[8] who fled their home during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. They came to Britain, initially claiming asylum, and anglicised their name to Hilton. Steve Hilton’s father, István, had been goaltender for the Hungarian national ice hockey team and was considered one of the top ice hockey players in Europe in the 1930s.[7][9] After arriving in Britain, his parents initially worked in catering at Heathrow Airport. They divorced when Steve was five years old[7] leading to what he has described as a struggle and great financial hardship; his mother worked in a shoe store to earn the little money they had, and the two lived in a cold, damp basement apartment. He won a scholarship to Christ’s Hospital School in Horsham before studying Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at New College, Oxford.”

After graduating, Hilton worked at Conservative Central Office, where he came to know David Cameron and Rachel Whetstone, his future wife and Senior Vice-President of Policy and Communications for Uber.[11] He liaised with the party’s advertising firm, Saatchi and Saatchi, and was praised by Maurice Saatchi, who remarked, “No one reminds me as much of me when young as Steve.”[8] During this time Hilton bought the “New Labour, New Danger” demon eyes poster campaign[12] for the Conservative’s pre-general election campaign in 1996, which won an award from the advertising industry’s Campaign magazine at the beginning of 1997.[13] The Conservatives went on to experience their worst election defeat for more than half a century, with some journalists speculating that the poster contrasted unfavourably with Labour’s more positive campaign.[14] In 2005, Hilton lost out to future Secretary of State for Education Michael Gove in the selection process for the Surrey Heath constituency.”

Hilton talked of the need to “replace” the traditionally minded grassroots membership of the Conservative Party, which he saw as preventing the party from embracing a more metropolitan attitude on social issues.”

So he was at first, in the 1990s, little better than a gopher, but then he met his wife, Rachel Whetstone. Who is she? She is described in Wikipedia as having been head of communications for Uber taxis. For a number of years until 2015, she was in a similar position at Google. She has more recently joined Netflix.

In February 2013, Whetstone was assessed as one of the 100 most powerful women in the United Kingdom by Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4.[4] Whetstone has been featured on PRWeek’s Power List several times, most recently in 2016 at number 14.” [Wikipedia]

Whetstone is married to Steve Hilton, whom she met after an affair with Lord Astor (stepfather to Samantha Cameron, wife of former Prime Minister David Cameron) in the lead-up to the 2005 election. Cameron is no longer on speaking terms with Whetstone or Hilton.” [Wikipedia]

More interestingly, Rachel Whetstone’s grandfather was one Antony Fisher, not much known to the public, though extremely influential behind the scenes:

Sir Antony George Anson Fisher AFC (28 June 1915 – 8 July 1988), nicknamed AGAF, was a British businessman and think tank founder. He participated in the formation of various libertarian organisations during the second half of the twentieth century, including the Institute of Economic Affairs and the Atlas Network. Through Atlas, he helped establish up to 150 other institutions worldwide.”

Antony Fisher may have been at least part-Jew, and was certainly a Zionist, pro-Israel to the hilt.

Hilton was thought by many to be half-mad. He was lucky to escape with a caution and a small fine after having assaulted someone on a railway platform in England. He had been arrested after the assault and after shouting “wanker!” at staff and police. At the time, this useless creature was being paid £200,000 a year from public funds. There were other incidents of aggressive behaviour during his time at No.10.

Andy Coulson, the former communications chief who was later jailed over phone hacking, recalled recently in the Telegraph: “I would ask, ‘So how does that work then?’ If I got an answer at all, it was along the lines of, ‘It’ll be fine – just you see.’ That was mildly irritating, as it was my team who would have to get out and sell the latest product from Steve’s dream factory.”” [The Guardian]

Hilton’s rightwing, free-market ideas certainly infuriated Lib Dems who worked with him, as chronicled in David Laws’s book about the coalition. One Lib Dem former adviser said: “I was unfortunate enough to spend some time in Steve’s thought wigwam and it was not a pretty place. I remember him suggesting we should scrap maternity laws and invest in cloud-busting technology to improve the British weather. I certainly do not remember at any time him raising any points about the immigration policy he is now criticising.”” [The Guardian]

Hilton accomplished nothing, certainly nothing concrete, at Downing Street, and eventually decamped to the USA, where he was, laughably, taken on as some kind of visiting “professor” at Stanford:

“In March 2012, Downing Street announced that Hilton would be a “visiting scholar” at Stanford University‘s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies for a year.[21] His last memo concerned the advocacy of severe cuts in the number of civil servants in the United Kingdom[22] and further welfare cuts.” [Wikipedia]

At time of writing, Steve Hilton is on the American TV network, Fox News, as a talking head, and is apparently a Trump partisan.

Had Bernie Sanders been the Democratic nominee, Hilton “probably would have supported him”. Hilton says he is not really a conservative or a liberal: “It’s hard to pin me down because I’m a bit of Bernie Sanders, a bit of Rand Paul, bit of John Kasich.” He’s pro-Trump simply because he was the candidate most likely to “shake things up”” [The Guardian]

Someone who actively likes and promotes chaos, in fact, just like Dominic Cummings [see below]

Steve Hilton, in other words, like the others examined here, is connected with cosmopolitan finance-capital and its intellectual superstructure of “think tanks” (which have proliferated over the years) and with supposed “institutes”, mostly carrying the same sort of message: internationalism, multikulti “get rich quick”-ism, destruction of tradition, race and culture, combined with State repression of those without money.

Dominic Cummings

[above, Dominic Cummings: note the “I’m Too Important To Wear A Tie Or A Jacket” affectation, as with Steve “Hilton”]

While “researching” (too grand, call it “looking up a few things”) for this blog post, I saw that at least one other has trodden much of the same path as me re. “the latest self-appointed genius” at Downing Street: https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/dominic-cummings-brexit-boris-johnson-vote-leave-nigel-farage-a9045766.html

As stated at the start of this blog post, I know of Cummings only what I have read. The links are either posted here below or are available easily via Google.

One thing that did interest me was the Wikipedia statement, taken from a biography of Michael Gove, that “Cummings speaks Russian and ‘is a Russophile'”. It seems that he tried to start an airline with the single route line of Samara (a large city on the Volga) to Vienna, an interesting choice of route. We are told on Wikipedia that: “After university, Cummings moved to Russia from 1994 to 1997, working on various projects. In one Russian venture, he worked for a group attempting to set up an airline connecting Samara in southern Russia to Vienna; however, the venture fell foul of the KGB, and was abandoned after only one flight.

Well, the “KGB” bit is wrong in exact terms, because the KGB was disbanded (reorganized) in 1991. The bulk of the “internal” work of the old KGB was given to the “FSK” which later became the FSB. As to why the revamped FSK/FSB would want to interfere in the activities of a foreign or foreign-connected airline, I wonder. There are, and have been for 2-3 decades now, numerous foreign airlines operating in the former Soviet Union, flying between Russia and other states.

In the 1990s, new “babyflots” (bits of the old Aeroflot) were emerging all the time, as were ad hoc operations such as the German airline “Luftbrucke” (Air Bridge), which transported tens of thousands of “Volksdeutsche” from Kazakhstan and Siberia to new lives in the reunified Germany (those people were mostly the descendants of Germans invited to Russia by Russian tsars, notably Catherine the Great, then deported East by Stalin). Luftbrucke, if I recall aright, also flew from Samara, as also from a host of cities in Western Siberia and Kazakhstan, such as Semipalatinsk.

I find the history of Cummings interesting. He graduated from Oxford in 1994 aged 22-23, his degree being in Ancient and Modern History. The very same year he moved to Russia “where he worked on various projects” including the idea “to set up a new airline”.

I admit that I myself have never set up an airline, but I know that you cannot do it without rather a lot of money, even in the conditions of post-collapse Sovietism (I myself was briefly in Moscow in 1993 and also dealt with legal and business matters in Russia and Kazakhstan for several years).

Cummings is said to be the son of an oil rig project manager and a special needs teacher. There is no suggestion of any heavy family wealth. Cummings only left university in 1994, yet by —at latest— 1997, so 0-3 years later, was setting up an airline? In fact, how did he get into Russian-oriented business anyway, with no obvious connections or personal monies. He is able to speak Russian, though. That too raises questions.

I lived in Almaty, Kazakhstan for a year (1996-1997), meeting dozens if not hundreds (and over the years, certainly hundreds) of businessmen, lawyers etc doing work in the various ex-Soviet republics. While most of the diplomats I met spoke at least some Russian, the vast majority of businessmen and lawyers encountered knew no Russian at all really (that was true of both British and Americans). Certainly unable to undertake even simple discussions. I even met some unable to order simple food and drink.

So Cummings leaves university in the UK, where he studied ancient and modern history, somehow speaks Russian (or learns it on the ground), and is at once involved with business activities which seem to go beyond being a mere gopher for others. I have to say that I wonder whether Cummings was up to something other than just being a British graduate drifting about and getting into Russian business speculations almost by chance. Maybe the Russian security people were right to be suspicious of him, as is suggested in his Wikipedia entry.

Anyway, he is now considered to be Boris Idiot’s eminence grise, and looks it (meaning “grey”, if not particularly eminent). In fact, despite being only 47, he looks 10+ years older than me, and I am now 62. His political career is summarized here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominic_Cummings#Political_career

I have to say that I agree with his view of many of the leading political and official figures (he described Iain Dunce Duncan Smith as “incompetent”, for example).

It seems that Cummings married a lady of the North Country gentry who is or was Deputy Editor of the Spectator. They live in Islington, in what the Daily Mail is pleased to call a “£1.6 million house” (though in London, what does that mean? I lived for years in a house in Little Venice now (over)valued at £4 million! Madness). Other details about Cummings are few.

What is clear is that this character is right now in the maelstrom of chaos and action that he loves so much. A defender quipped that he’ll be thrilled with upheaval – it’s the only way he sees people being forced into action. His friend once heard him quote Lenin: “The worse the better.” [Reaction magazine]

The Prophets of Dystopia

These “advisers” (of whom I have selected a mere few from a larger pool) and their connected “think tanks” etc are, even when some of their critique of society is justified, basically destructive. The same applies to the people themselves. Admittedly, Brendan Bracken left a less obviously destructive legacy, but then, after the huge and unnecessary war which he, from the shadows, did so much to bring about, what more need he do to be adjudged a negative force?

Look at Steve Hilton, Dominic Cummings etc. Where are their real achievements? Leaves blown away by the wind. These people may themselves have acquired riches, but only or mainly because they married wealthy wives, then used their own political attachment and profile to become highly-prized TV, radio, press and online “gurus” . They themselves have not established anything solid, whether in commerce, industry, academia, the arts, the sciences, charitable work or anywhere else. They are creatures created from the chaos and decadence in society. They prosper from the decadence and weakness of the political system in the UK and attach themselves to stupid, weak, posturing politicians vainly trying to reach to statesmanship, people such as David Cameron-Levita and Boris-Idiot. They are a symptom of dark days ahead. Social nationalism must rise up to exterminate evil and to found a better and better-organized society.

Afterthought, 10 August 2019

Is it fanciful to compare the sliding society we now have (look at the past few days…) and the prominence of these odd characters such as Hilton and Cummings, whose academic and patchy work histories are at best underwhelming, with the sliding Russia of the last few years before the Revolution(s) of 1917? Perhaps, but in late-Tsarist Russia too the government, civil service, certainly the politicians, were paralyzed, helpless to do anything positive, and so the influence grew of odd characters: tarot practitioners, mystics and occultists, fortune-tellers of all kinds, persons believed to have arcane knowledge and unorthodox ways to make politics work via persuasion and peculiar ideas and methods. The starets (he was never a monk or priest) Rasputin was only the most important of a whole host.

The rest is history.

Update, 14 August 2019

A partisan journalist writes…

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/dominic-cummings-10000-prison-places-brexit-boris-johnson-failure-a9054516.html

In fact, I agree with some of what Cummings has said:

We should stop selecting leaders from a subset of Oxbridge egomaniacs with a humanities degree...” That is true, though I have nothing against degrees in the humanities, but the whole idea of the “generalist” (almost always armed with a degree from Oxford or Cambridge) has blighted UK political, cultural and even industrial life for 70 years, perhaps 100 years. The Soviet Union tended toward the same behaviour (the politically-OK “Man From Moscow” who could “direct” anything from a tyre factory to a Young Pioneer camp or the building of the Moscow Metro), and look what happened there (the Metro in Moscow admittedly being a —rare— success of the Soviet system).

Of course, the worst single example of the generalist might be Cummings’ present employer, Boris-idiot, who has proven that he is incapable of doing anything properly, but who can do it while quoting a bit of rote-learned Ancient Greek, or using an English word no-one else has ever heard of (he must trawl the OED for those silly words, I expect…what a complete waste of space he is!). As the journalist writes,

All evidence goes out the window. The grandest ever Oxbridge egomaniac of them all (with not even a very good humanities degree, as it happens) is seeing only the flickering shadows on the news on the wall. It is not even day 14 and already we have beaten a hyper-accelerated march to the world of crap policy for political gain.

The journalist continues, citing a recent Times article by Cummings:

Elsewhere, in that same Times article, we read: “We must train aspirant leaders very differently so they have the skills and experience of managing complex projects.””

And here he is, bringing in policies that would make Norman Tebbit look enlightened, working for a leader whose skill at “managing complex projects” so far extends to some rolling windowless sauna buses, a cable car to nowhere, and a ghost garden bridge that may or may not take you to a demented airport that has never and will never be built.

Update, 29 September 2019

Through his system, as yet unexplained – “I will go into what I think this vision could be and how to do it another day” – he will turn a nation of average people into one of the most successful countries in the world. He will sweep away the suffocating postwar mainframes of politics, and build something capable of withstanding the unknown crises ahead. Or so he would wish. In truth, he may be little more than a survivalist in the woods, soldering wires together in the belief he is saving us all.

Is Dominic Cummings a visionary or a fool? The remarkable fact is that the Conservative Party has risked its future, and the country’s, on which one Cummings turns out to be.” [Harry Lambert, writing in The New Statesman]
