Globalism at work…again. That, and a country (the UK) where people are now taught from childhood to be ashamed of their race, culture, history and former Empire. Also, the fact that much of the UK economy is in the hands of various kinds of foreigners, in this case Turkish, but more often Chinese, Jews, whatever.

Remarkable, coming from a long-term Con mouthpiece and supporter.

The time is coming when free speech, open debate etc will be banned by stealth and Lilliputian ties. To a large extent, in the UK and elsewhere, it has already happened— in the msm, in publishing, in academia etc. All areas, incidentally, where the Jew-Zionists often hold sway.

When Alexander the Great was confronted by the Gordian Knot, he realized that there was only one way to win— he drew his sword and cut the knot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordian_Knot.

Frightening. Also, rather facile.

They are also the most highly-educated generation on record. This year, a record number of 435,000 18-year-olds in Britain —like my students— will arrive on campus. And this higher education, for many, helps to explain why, alongside the slightly older Millennials, they are also the most socially liberal generation in history.

[Matt Goodwin blog].

The idea that attending a “university” (whether an ancient one or a 5-minute-old “McUniversity”) makes the attendee “highly-educated” is risible, looking at most of the graduates, let alone undergraduates.

Consistently, Zoomers are the most supportive of Britain re-joining the European Union, the most likely to think immigration is having positive effects, and to voice strong support for rising diversity in all its forms. When I asked my students to name the most pressing problems facing the country today they either said climate change or racism. Nobody, interestingly, mentioned the economy.

[Matt Goodwin blog].

Actually, his students sound like complete idiots. Obviously spouting the simplistic ideas pumped into them, for about 13 years, by semi-educated teachers, or via the BBC and other mass media..

Many of these Zoomer graduates are also coming of age amid what philosopher John Gray has called ‘hyper-liberalism’ —and what others call ‘left modernism’, ‘progressive authoritarianism’, or ‘woke’ politics. While its supporters are often driven by good intentions, this is a more dogmatic, moralistic, and polarising brand of politics which promotes much looser definitions of terms such as ‘racism’ and much stricter, if not oppressive, speech codes that are used to try and curtail discrimination.”

Personally, I suspect we are on the cusp of an entirely new cultural revolution in the West which will not only be driven by demands for more radical economic change but far more radical cultural and social change, too. And the Zoomers, as they trickle out of the universities into the institutions, will be in the driving seat of that revolution.

[Matt Goodwin blog].

Well, it may be possible to turn the current in a more social-national direction. If not, those people will not be required.

…and all of [see above] Matt Goodwin’s eagerly “woke” students can then clap the “diversity” —and their own “tolerance”— as a torrent of cheap non-white labour continues to flood in, rendering their useless degrees about as valuable as a used bus ticket.

I am happy to see the fake “Conservative” Party about to go down the plughole, hopefully for good. Downside is, of course, that equally-fake and wrongheaded Labour will thereby grow stronger, in a basically rigged and binary system.

Still, if the Con Party can be reduced to somewhere below 200 MPs (1997-2005 levels), perhaps to as few as 100, that would be a good start to breaking up the whole rotten system.

Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get even worse

Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get even worse.’

“Alt-right” schoolboy and “controlled opposition” GB News talking head, Tom Harwood, reports from the Con Party Conference.

What strikes me is how few delegates and visitors there are. Only the central part of the hall full. Would assess it as no more than 500 people. Not many, considering that the Conservative Party has 357 MPs.

Meanwhile, a Spectator scribbler thinks that the market should rule:

…though he is scarcely uncritical of the past 12 years of Con government: https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/what-do-the-tories-have-to-show-from-their-time-in-power-.

Reverting to his energy price theme, he writes (I have highlighted the key fact):

The core problem is that without Russian gas there isn’t enough energy to go around Europe. It’s a problem that has been compounded by the fact that half of France’s nuclear reactors have been offline this summer and Norway, a major supplier of hydroelectric power, has had record low rainfall. With limited supply and high demand, people are bidding against one another for energy use. Prices will rise, and keep rising, until demand is reduced sufficiently to match supply. That’s if the market is allowed to function.Part of the problem is that the Conservative party is just the Labour party on a five-year lag...

A far better idea would be to scrap the price cap entirely, letting households pay the full cost of their energy use while doling out massive quantities of cash to those on lower incomes or with higher needs. This would preserve price signals and the incentive to use less, while also giving people enough money to keep their homes warm.

Instead, Liz Truss is apparently planning to freeze household bills at or below £1,971, well below the actual market price of supply; the wholesale price alone for October-December is expected to be £2,491. The Times carries a slightly different version of the story where the cap is allowed to rise to £2,500 – still below the total cost of electricity.

[Sam Ashworth-Hayes, in the Spectator].

I agree with his first sentence, and have been —probably pointlessly— blogging (for 5 years) and tweeting (until the Jew fanatics had me expelled from Twitter in 2018) about how the UK should be getting closer to Russia and, indeed, leaving NATO in return for, (among many advantages) getting cheap or even (it is possible) near-free gas from Russia, which would solve our energy problem overnight.

Instead of which, “Boris”-idiot, and now the stupid Liz Truss “ho”, have been giving billions in various ways to the Jew dictatorship in Kiev, and even threatening Russia with nuclear attack via “our” (controlled in reality by the USA) Trident nuclear submarines.

In fact, that Spectator article is worth reading in full. Ashworth-Hayes concludes by looking at the wider background:

Part of the problem is that the Conservative party is just the Labour party on a five-year lag; once Starmer suggested freezing prices, the blue team were inevitably going to follow along at some point. But a bigger problem is that the Tories are increasingly the party of the non-working and economically inactive.

The Tory vote is old. Pensioners don’t work and don’t pay much in taxes. They certainly don’t benefit from investments that pay off 20 years down the line. They’re very happy to rack up massive bills in the present day and pass them off to their grandchildren. And they vote in massive numbers.

This gives Conservative politicians strong incentives to find ways to take from the young and the future to give to the old and the present-day. It is toxic in the long term – we have a dysfunctional housing market, twisted to prop up pensioner assets, and high taxes to fund pensioner healthcare and pensions that are destroying family formation and living standards among young people. This is the only way the current Conservative party can see itself clinging on to power. Changing the prime minister isn’t enough to change that.

Well, there is much truth in all that, and if the “grey vote” wakes up to the fact that Liz Truss —albeit in 1995, aged 20, so be it— suggested scrapping the State Pension entirely, then the Con Party will rapidly pass into history.

The one demographic that votes Con heavily and actually votes is the (mainly) English “grey vote”, however defined (I am really talking about the 60+ age group). If that goes, the Conservative Party also goes.

Well-regarded“? That idiot who, after a few too many glasses of whisky, shouted out that the Scottish regiments had beaten Russia in the Crimean War (according to him) and so the British Army could beat Russia today. 170 years later.

Britain has 60-200 nuclear weapons and a land area of 93,600 square miles. Russia has about 6,000 nuclear weapons and a land area of 6,601,000 square miles (about 71 times the size of the UK).

As to the “conference”, looks as though only a few dozen people are bothering to do more than drink in bars.

Is there anything the Jews will not complain about? The fact is that Schindler’s Ark, the novel (yes, novel) on which the film Schindler’s List was based, is a work of fiction: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schindler%27s_Ark. The fact that Jews have “edited” the Wikipedia entry for Schindler’s List, the film of the book, to refer to the book as a “non-fiction novel” is meaningless, as is that term itself, the more usual term being “faction”.

The famous “faction” novel by Frederick Forsyth, The Day of the Jackal, is not “non-fiction” just because a few characters in it (eg President de Gaulle) actually existed. The book is still basically fiction; so is Schindler’s Ark and the film based on it.

As a matter of fact, Schindler’s Ark was not even written by someone who experienced Germany or Poland during WW2; it was written by an Australian, Thomas Keneally, who, at the material time, was 5-10 years old and who only left Australia for the first time in 1968. Schindler’s Ark was written and published in 1982. Keneally seems to have visited Poland in or about 1980, not long before the novel was published.

Many of his novels are reworkings of historical material, although modern in their psychology and style

More tweets seen

I recently assessed the “Bootstrap Cook” on the blog, having seen the Twitter (etc) storm that started a couple of months ago. https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.

This England

Saw the first episode of This England, following the pretty disastrous tenure, as Prime Minister, of “Boris” Johnson.

It kept the interest. The casting was remarkably good, headed by a performance by Kenneth Branagh that was amazingly like the real “Boris”, to look at. Other leading characters were also well-portrayed.

I felt that it could have been harder-hitting in some areas. Still, good overall.

Late tweets

https://www.gov.uk/home-education

People on £150,000 a year are of course not the “super-rich”, but they are still making several times the average, and 10x the amount earned by huge numbers of people in this country.

Only 1% or so of the population earn that much in terms of income.

That Tony Parsons tweet shows the gulf between the msm cosmopolitan talking heads, scribblers, entertainers etc, and the vast bulk of the British people.

In a sense, surprising that Parsons should be so unaware, but “put a beggar on a horse and he rides it to death” [German proverb]. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Parsons_(British_journalist)#Background.

Britain needs a new kind of social-national movement.

The war can be brought to a halt by the West/NATO/NWO simply cutting off supplies of money, arms and ammunition to the forces of the Kiev regime. The fake state and failed state of post-1991 Ukraine will then crumble within weeks if not days.

If escalation continues, there will eventually be a strategic nuclear exchange between NATO/NWO and Russia, after which anything could happen.

It can still be stopped.

NWO: New Zealand

Oh dear. New Zealand had so much going for it not so very long ago. Now, the multikulti madness is killing it:

NWO: France

The Rothschilds/NWO/ZOG gopher, Macron, let the mask slip a couple of years ago:

Now we see what NWO/ZOG means on the ground. French dissidents being brutalized on the streets, civil rights being cut back too, while anyone saying anything about the Jews or the “holocaust” farrago is being prosecuted. What a co-incidence…

[one of my favourite films]

Harry and the Royal Mulatta— latest

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/prince-harry-meghan-markle-archie-canada-vancouver-live-a4339786.html

So Harry has flown off to Vancouver, to be the modern Vronsky. I wonder whether he understands that, without the royal and other titles (not to mention the £30M he apparently has inherited from his mother and/or been given by his father) he would be a complete nullity. In his own person, he is of no interest: a former young and high-spirited officer of insufficient intellect and talent to be promoted beyond major.

Has this whole episode damaged the UK Royal Family? Well, it has not improved its image…the danger that the royals face is neither outright “revolutionary” hostility nor even a republican surge, but simple indifference as they become irrelevant to the people. The antics of Harry and for that matter Andrew do spike actual hostility, but it is indifference that kills the relationship between ruled and (nominal) rulers.

“Lie-detectors” and terrorists

This sounds like a pretty silly idea to me. So a “terrorist” (let’s just take that as given) is in prison. He is eventually released and as part of a “monitoring process” is subjected to polygraph testing. Such “lie-detectors” can be beaten. Whatever some Americans say (and the USA is the only country where they are routinely used) this is not a reliable way of assessing veracity:

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

Also, what will happen if a “terrorist” is released from a prison sentence, shows no other indication of further similar offending, but fails the polygraph test? Will he be incarcerated again simply on that basis, because he failed the test? It seems unsafe and likely to damage the image of “British Justice”.

Mike Stuchbery

Readers may have seen my earlier blogging about Mike Stuchbery, “antifa” inciter, self-described “journalist”, “historian” and tour guide, who tweets now from Stuttgart cafes about how “Nazis” (social nationalists, conservative nationalists and others of whom he disapproves) should be violently attacked (by others).

My previous main article about him is here below:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/

I am also blogging (updated as necessary) about his attempt to sue the supposedly “nationalist” activist known as Tommy Robinson:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/11/27/mike-stuchbery-and-tommy-robinson-legal-dispute/

Leaving aside the rights and wrongs (and I think that Stuchbery was the author of his own fate), his legal action against “Robinson”, to my mind, has little or no chance of success (see above articles).

The GoFundMe launched by Stuchbery’s UK colleague or fellow “antifa” idiot, one “Roanna” (aka, on Twitter, the “Witch of Peace”), failed in November/December 2019 even to get to the halfway point of the original £20,000 target, at which point that failure was spun to a narrative that Stuchbery’s wife (supposedly or notionally German) would be joining him as claimant (what was once known as “plaintiff”). The GoFundMe has restarted, but has run into the sand. I suppose that there are only so many mugs around…

I notice that, as of today, the fund stands at £11,514. In the past few days, a grand total of £50 has been donated. In the past 24 hours? Nothing. I cannot say whether this funding appeal and the proposed legal action are just a scam (perhaps not entirely) but I am sure that the proposed lawsuit will either never get off the ground or will be prevented from continuing, if ever started, by the lack of money for Security for Costs (see my main blog articles).

Stuchbery

above: Stuchbery having a meltdown when “Tommy Robinson” apparently turned up at his, Stuchbery’s, then house at Luton, UK, following Stuchbery’s (and others’) attempt to send peculiar people to Robinson’s wife’s house (also at Luton).

Not much sign of the “antifa” “warrior” who urged people to “keep punching Nazis. Never stop.” or the Stuchbery who recommended that “they should bus in some German antifa; they really know how to crack skulls“…and who, even in the past week, has tweeted that anyone questioning the absurd “holocaust” farrago should be “decked and laid out“.

Stuchbery has also been tweeting in commendation of some little “hoes” who, in 1940-41 Holland, pretended to like young German soldiers in bars, then lured them to quiet places where gangs of terrorists (often Jews) could murder them. The Provisional IRA tried that tactic in early 1970s Belfast, and a few British soldiers were killed but the public reaction (even on the Republican side) was so negative that the Provos dropped the idea (also, the British started to infiltrate plainclothes military intelligence and special forces soldiers into pubs and bars, as a precaution).

Now look again at the pathetic creature above, crying his eyes out. “What goes around comes around” [American saying].

On a side issue, Stuchbery’s appeal does show the limitations of Twitter slacktivism. Here we have Stuchbery with his nearly 88,000 Twitter followers. I am prepared to accept, in his case, that they are all genuine, unlike those of, say, “Mark Lewis Lawyer”, the Jew-Zionist legal scammer, who in 2010 had about 8,000 followers but then bought about 70,000 “followers” back around 2013 (he still claims about 27,000).

If Twitter followers meant much, you might expect at least 4,000 of Stuchbery’s 88,000 Twitter followers to give £5 each (the minimum amount) to his GoFundMe, thus reaching his £20,000 target sum effortlessly. In reality, only about 700 have donated. Slacktivism. Clicktivism.

Labour leadership

Loudmouth idiot Jess Phillips has had to pull out of the contest to avoid total humiliation. Good riddance.

News from the Mushroom Bureau

Yes, there really is such an office:

I hesitate to say that Britain is a land of cretins, because I have lived in a number of other countries. Even so…

More thoughts about Harry

Harry and the mulatta have enough money to live rather luxuriously indefinitely. What Harry does not have is a role, even that of “businessman”. He has no profession save that of arms, and in any case does not need an income. He needs a reason to exist. His intellectual life is no doubt limited, so he needs a “job” of some kind to replace the “royal prince” one.

 

Well, nearly midnight UK time, so maybe time to say goodnight to my blog readers
