Well, this week, political journalist John Rentoul scored the same as me: 7/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 3, and 7 and, if truth be known, my correct answer to question 4 was an educated guess.
Slowly slowly catchee monkey…
In fact, the NWO/ZOG agenda is now accelerating, now that we are in 2022, the primary year of the 33 year-cycle ending when the next such year starts in 2055.
Already, banks in the UK have introduced restrictions on transfers of cash and other payments, and note a range of other transactions. It’s coming. Slow enfoldment.
2022, the most significant year since 1989. Previous such significant years were 1956 and 1923.
An octopus has quite high intelligence and sentience. I rarely buy seafood salad with octopus rings now for that reason.
I have wondered why Jews, especially, are and have been among the most fanatical for the “vaccines” and other “measures”, including the facemask nonsense. You see tweets from them claiming that they have, have had, or are afraid of getting “Covid”, as well as tweets (even now) fervently urging compulsory mask-wearing etc.
I think that this can all be traced back to an ingrained wish to be seen as the perennial “victim”, even when that is extremely implausible.
1945 was a setback, but not the complete defeat that it seemed at the time. The Reich was crushed, but the essence of National Socialism has survived in other forms, other places. It is still possible to create the basis for the necessary quantum leap in human evolution.
Even by “their” standards, Giles Coren is a horrible little bastard.
How long before Giles Coren plays the “antisemitism” card?
“Giles Coren“, in that tweet, could be replaced by many another name with equal truth: to name but a few, Boris Johnson, Dido Harding, and The Royal Cuck, Harry of that ilk, Formerly Known as “Prince”.
Translation— a total nut, probably living off a trust fund. America is in real trouble.
Stuchbery used to call himself “historian“, but was only ever one in the manner of someone who travels around (Germany, mainly), copies tourist information he sees here and there, then collates it into tweets.
Nothing wrong about that, in itself; in fact I have always said that I enjoy his tweets on mediaeval and Renaissance history (he is usually wrong about history after about 1880), but he is no historian.
Exactly. I read the local newspapers online, the ones for coastal Hampshire and Dorset. The court reports are interesting inasmuch that, even for me, a one-time barrister (albeit far more civil and commercial etc than criminal), the sentences often surprise by their leniency.
I am far from being a “hanger and flogger”, and I favour clemency where possible, perhaps even too much, but I now read of people who have committed crimes of considerable violence and brutality, not to mention egregious theft, being effectively “let off”.
You have to work quite hard to get imprisoned in the UK these days (unless the Jews say that you have been rude about them).
Example? A few years ago, I heard tell of a man, an accountant aged in his 40s, who had a paid job, I think part-time, with a really worthwhile hospice charity not far from where I myself live (about 2-3 miles away). That person stole (embezzled) £40,000 from the charity.
In court, the embezzler must have had Counsel very good at mitigation because, on the premises that the defendant’s parents had stumped up the £40,000 to compensate the hospice, the defendant got off with a suspended sentence, despite the egregious breach of trust, despite also the fact that he was only caught by chance or Fate, and despite the fact that he had initially tried to blame more junior staff.
No. Far too lenient.
For once I agree with that stupid woman. GPs, at least many, may be overpaid, and those that want an easier life may find it congenial to drop by the surgery a couple of days a week and still pick up a gross pay of about £60,000 in many cases.
Incidentally, I have no animus against my own GP, a very polite person whom I have not actually seen face to face for years, but with whom I am reasonably satisfied, and who monitors me via routine blood tests etc, and sends the odd letter.
I have not watched much of the Budget coverage. Talking heads and/or “journalists” (System propagandists) yapping ignorantly and, all the while, smug MP or ex-MP freeloaders (such as David Gauke) seen on Sky TV or BBC talking about “wasting government money” etc (when Gauke himself —among many many others— claimed for everything he could, including tacky furnishings, TV sets, luxury hotel stays etc).
What a bunch of monkeys!
This Government has, of course “wasted money” (UK’s economic resources): £37 BILLION on the ludicrous “test and trace” nonsense alone, headed by incompetent crony Dido Harding. Something that was not even necessary in the first place. That’s more than the projected cost of even the HS2 vanity-rail white elephant.
Imagine what other could have been done with £37BN. Improving the whole rail infrastructure of the country. New hospitals. Libraries, or education generally (I mean real education, not warehousing children in schools, “taught” by ignorant teachers —very often— while the parents work, or jump through bureaucratic hoops).
£37BN works out at around £1,000 for every working-age adult in the UK. In other words, the Treasury could just have given every person in the UK about £1,000, with better results socially and economically.
To put it another way, the most expensive aircraft carrier ever built, the USS Ford, cost about £9 Billion in pounds sterling, so the UK could have had (disregarding running costs) four like that, instead of the useless, pointless, “test and trace” fiasco. Or might have had built about 37 smaller warships.
When you see that part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer, “Boris”, posing as Prime Minister (forget Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, and the other clowns), you know that the UK political system is terminally sick.
“Criticized“? Yes, but we have seen in recent years what frightens the corrupt and the conspirators, and it is not being “criticized” in official reports.
The “Thalidomide” of our times?
Yesterday, the hugely ignorant Daily Mirror scribbler, Susie Boniface, aka “the Fleet Street Fox” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susie_Boniface] suggested, in a Mirror opinion piece, that “anti-vaxx” protesters should be imprisoned, and generally treated as terrorists. From where did that come? At any rate, an interesting straw in the wind as we approach 2022, the most significant year since 1989 (and, previously, 1956 and 1923). 33-year cycle.
How long before anyone questioning the System narrative and System policies is considered to be a “social terrorist” or “enabler”? Anyone who questions the “panicdemic” narrative. Anyone who opposes the cross-Channel or other migration-invasion. Anyone who questions the power or influence of the Jewish lobby. Anyone seeking a better society. Others…
You can see already the outline of what is taking shape. Look at the Online Harms Bill. Even less free speech than now exists. The Jewish (Zionist) lobby is behind much of the repression.
I wonder what our society will be like in a couple of hundred years if it continues on its present trajectory?

Alarming that the most powerful military-destructive machine in the world is now controlled, at least notionally, by someone who appears to be a confused, semi-demented, and possibly incontinent person, who may or may not be some kind of child abuser. One can only hope that, if Biden tries to reprise Hilary’s idea, and launch a third world war against Russia (or China), that there is some American version of a chekist standing quietly behind him, pistol always ready to administer a quick coup de grace…
Exactly. UK streets are less safe year on year, but the repression of opinion, including online opinion, is intensifying with every passing year.
As the tweeter says, “wealthy“…perhaps in fact not “beyond the dreams of avarice” (let’s not set the bar too low!) but probably worth a couple of million anyway, including the detached house in a pleasant neighbourhood etc.
“It was not painful; didn’t hurt…” Obviously not sufficiently deterred…
What gives the idiots the right to stop other people moving freely? Some weird idea that their actions will force Government to make more house insulation mandatory, or to pay for that? The protesters’ whole premise is nonsense. There is obviously a hidden agenda here, but protesters such as that retired doctor are merely pawns in someone else’s game.
Too many people are waking up. Bring on the talking heads and scribblers such as Susie Boniface, Fleet Street Fox, to call for the imprisonment of dissidents.
Note the police robots standing behind the “protester” (para-terrorist), not stopping him, not arresting him, nor even talking to him; in fact, looking “as if” they are protecting him…
In fact, the police car in that picture is also blocking the road.
Come to think of it, I have seen nothing from Susie Boniface, “Fleet Street Fox”, about treating “Insulate Britain” or Extinction Rebellion as “terrorists”. She may perhaps have done so (I tend to avoid reading her ignorant drivel), but I have anyway not seen it.
I remember watching this, as a boy of 14-15, in black and white (it was made in colour but I had my own huge and ancient b&w TV, with wooden case, and made, I should think, in the 1950s).
Looking at what little is on YouTube, and what (also not much) I can now recall, it is interesting to see the differences between the 1971 view of the near future (The Guardians was set in the 1980s) and what actually happened in the 1980s and on to 2021, 50 years after the 13 episodes of the series were shown.
There may have been those, in the early 1980s, amid the Miners’ Strike etc, who found parallels (the early paramilitarization of some police, and the use of SAS soldiers dressed as police).
Looking back now, one still finds parallels, but also great differences. The first is the relative quiescence of the public now. No, or very few, violent demonstrations, few big marches (and even fewer violent ones) compared to the 1970s.
Now, we have the Internet, and all its issues. That was not a factor, for the public, until the mid-1990s at earliest. The authorities have far wider powers in practice now, and use them.
In 1971, the “Guardian” force was seen as paramilitary, but in 2021 the forces of repression use plainclothes operatives (mostly), and not decrees (as such) but “laws” nodded through by a rubberstamp Parliament— look at the Online Harms Bill being put through Parliament right now, and with no resistance at all from a useless “Opposition” led by a Jewish-lobby puppet.
Also, 1971 people would not have taken seriously the idea that a virus which (supposedly) kills about 1 in 1,000 of the population would enable the UK Government to impose wide-ranging curbs on the most basic civil liberties (eg freedom to travel —even by car— in 2020); or that the kind of people who were most likely to resist actively in 1971 would become, in 2021, virtue-signalling “we’re good citizens, we are” serfs.
Interesting short documentary about the Afrika Korps in Libya and French Equatorial Africa (now, Chad, in part) in the early 1940s
10,000 truckers waiting to cross the Channel have now been tested for “the virus”. Only 24 have tested positive. About 1 in every 500. That should wake people up, but will not. The hysteria is ingrained now. Almost a full year of fear propaganda has had its effect. Having said that, I detect less of a sharp edge in the public mood.
When “the virus” was thought of as a kind of Black Death, in the Spring of 2020, there was a palpable feeling of real fear about. Now, that fear has evolved into more of a mere background effect, which is kept “revving” by the constant official and msm propaganda (which includes the facemask nonsense).
As is not infrequent, the early broadcasting was ghastly today. A platitudinous Prayer for the Day by some priestess-bishop, then a full half hour about the South Downs by a singer of whom I had never heard, one Frank Turner. How can someone who sings so out of tune be a professional singer?! Painful. I looked him up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Turner.
I wonder whether he is in line for £10,000-£100,000 of public money…
The reality of the “panicdemic” is never shown on the msm. The reality is that, so far, while —worldwide— over a million people have died “with” the virus, that is after all one million out of eight thousand million people on Earth. About one death for every eight thousand people. Which puts the matter into perspective, or should.
True, the ratio is much higher in the UK, about one death out of every 1,400 inhabitants. The principle applies, though.
“The virus” has now been around (as far as we know) for nearly a year now.
The British public have been subjected to pressures rarely known in modern times: fear propaganda, toytown police state action, legally probably-invalid “laws”, “rules” and “advice” (all deliberately conflated). Crucially, the public has “had its mouth stuffed with gold” to buy off criticism of all this. Key medical staff such as doctors have been given pay rises of over 4%, well above inflation. Employees and some self-employed have been “furloughed” on what amounts to, for many, full net pay. Even the unemployed and working poor not furloughed have been given a small but useful Universal Credit boost of an extra £20 a week.
All of those measures, now extended into 2021, have softened the blows of the economic shutdown (which is what “lockdowns” and “tiers of restriction” are).
It would be naive to imagine that such a situation is sustainable indefinitely, even though with “national debt” being created at very low interest rates, it is, for the moment, sustainable.
It will be interesting to see how the UK economy does post-Brexit. If not well, there will open up a real opportunity for social nationalism, but that cannot happen while the population is being cushioned in terms of personal finance. To put it one way, only when the population starts to suffer, and seeks a way out, will such an opportunity be realizable. As Lenin once said, “worse will be better”.
The newspaper-journalistic trade (nb. not “profession”, not “vocation”) has no future because most of its present practitioners are semi-literate idiots, and most of the rest are dishonest and in the pocket of the Jewish-Zionist element.
Ferguson obviously “knows the right people”, the magic carpet of contemporary Britain (cf. Dido Harding etc, not to mention, in the past, Boris-idiot).
If there really was a civilization-ending pandemic going on, medical staff wouldn't have time to practice and rehearse these horrendous synchronized dances and posting them to social media.
I suggested some time ago that Trump stick it to various groups by using his unfettered right to pardon while he still can. So far he has started by pardoning a few cronies, as well as the murderous and stupid Blackwater mercenaries.
What Trump should do now is pardon all social-national prisoners doing time in Federal prisons. There are hundreds, maybe thousands of them. Some are doing life sentences or are even on Death Row. I imagine that they would be most grateful to Trump were he to pardon them. He may need a few friends soon. I suspect that, like “Condor” in “Three Days of the Condor” (a favourite film), Trump is “about to become a very lonely man“…
Pardon Julian Assange and Edward Snowden too.
Another scene from Three Days of the Condor:
A few more tweets seen
That tweet, above, pretty much sums up the total unreality of the self-describing “Left” in today’s UK. The whole country should, she thinks, be “locked down”. For a month? Six months? A year? In perpetuity? Until a vaccine or cure is around and covers all mutations etc?
The pseudo-socialist supporters of open-ended “lockdown” are also almost always in favour of open borders, greatly increased pay, benefits and services (including NHS services) etc. They imagine that some form of magical economics can square that circle. They are basically socio-politico-economic lunatics.
Such self-describing “Left” “socialists” (I myself never use “Right” and “Left”) are in a world of complete delusion, in which, inter alia, the usual rules of economics, commonsense and real life generally are suspended just for them.
In that crazy world of their own delusions, millions of non-Europeans (most entirely unskilled) can flood in, breed, be given housing, medical services, money etc. At the same time, all struggling English/British people will be paid more and/or get decent State benefits instead of the present inadequate ones.
In that world, everyone will have whatever education, NHS services, transport etc, they want or need, all for free or very cheaply. All sorts of other nice things will also be available freely.
The best trick of all? That all of the above can be provided despite the economy having been all but shut down for months or even years!
Well, obviously, such people are basically mad politically, economically etc. They are the same people who think that Corbyn and McDonnell had something to offer the UK electorate and that Corbyn was going to be Prime Minister.
The weird thing there is that they could see that the Jew-Zionist element in the msm and online was attacking Corbyn and Labour relentlessly, yet continued to support the Jew Zionists in their “holocaust” and (supposed) “antifascist” campaigns. The pseudo-socialists supported and still support the very tribe that killed off their beloved Corbyn’s chances!
Well, I am not a psychiatrist…
Most of those silly people are still desperately tweeting in favour of the UK being in the EU! Yes, they all, or almost all, support the finance-capitalist EU concept as well. No wonder that many of them have mental problems!
So Blake died. An interesting character. A believer (in many things, serially). I blame not Blake for his treachery, to put it that way, but the naive British, who thought that all that was necessary to turn a half-Jew (half-Jew, half-Dutch), born in Rotterdam and brought up mainly in Egypt, into a “British gentleman” was a better suit, better shoes, a change of name (from Behar to true-blue “Blake”), and a position in the Foreign Office (and, covertly, SIS). Wrong…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Blake].
Not that more obviously British people are necessarily more reliable, as witness the so-called “Magnificent Five” or “Velikolepnaya Pyaterka” headed by Kim Philby; Philby, though, was part-, I think quarter, Indian, his mother, Dora, being a so-called “chi-chi” (Anglo-Indian mixed-race).
Admittedly, that was not so in the case of Maclean, Burgess, Blunt, and Cairncross. In their cases, as also with Philby, we have to look at the influence, in the 1930s, of what has been called “the dummy intellectuality” of Marxism-Leninism.
Still, if “Blake” was to have been recruited at all, it should have been as agent, not officer.
Mink are also living creatures, but if it has to be done, to save the indigenous animals…
White people created western civilization. Art, literature, architecture, music, there is soo much to European culture and white people have made their mark on society 100x over. There is exponentially more to be proud of than to be ashamed of. Personally I'm not ashamed of any
Sadly, the Jewish lobby had me expelled from Twitter, so I cannot personally enlighten that first tweeter.
It is strange, though, how the Remain whiners, as the first tweeter is (a Jewish woman, and very pro-EU, resident in —as the newspapers are wont to say— “leafy” Wallingford, Oxfordshire—…most Remain whiners seem to be in circumstances not too uncomfortable) are also the “lockdown” and facemask zealots. It must be by reason of a wish for the State or —in the EU case— super-state to lay down strict rules etc. Psychological nexus rather than political nexus.
“I know it has been said before, but it’s worth repeating because Matt Hancock would like you to believe the opposite.
The virus poses little threat to healthy people under 60.
The over-60s should take particular care. They must make their calculations.
As a 68-year-old man who has not been totally written off by his GP, my chances of dying from Covid-19 if I catch it are supposedly about one and a half per cent. Not huge but not negligible.” [Stephen Glover, Daily Mail]
I was interested to hear Rocco Forte of the hotel/catering “empire” on Radio 4 Today. Very much anti the “panicdemic”, and making all the good points: more people dying of other conditions (eg flu) than of “Covid-19”; the lack of peril to almost anyone under 40; the economic damage (his companies are about to lay off thousands of employees) etc. Also, Forte has himself actually had “the virus” (“an unpleasant 3 weeks“, he said) and recovered, despite being 75 years old.
Whatever one’s view of “the virus”, the incompetence of the present UK government and its cronies (eg the well-connected but pathetic careerist bumbler, Dido Harding) is incredible.
Again. Why is Europe, or more accurately, why is the System, tolerating this?

The more you give (in), the more (((they))) want…#PoundOfFlesh.
Note the dictatorial tone…that’s what happens when you make concessions to “them”.
Labour now has a leader who is basically a System/Jewish lobby doormat. A “Labour Friend of Israel” and married to a Jewish wife (a property lawyer) with whom he is bringing up their children as if fully Jewish.
I notice that, even in the present circumstances, when the government of the UK has been taken over by a ragbag of anti-British globalist incompetents, Labour cannot get ahead of the misnamed “Conservatives” in the opinion polls. Unsurprising, when it scarcely opposes any Government policies…
Jewish lobby tool Ian Austin, the ex-MP, is very odd indeed. As far as I know, he has never explained why he tweeted, a couple of years ago, that hard-core pornography, particularly that involving bestiality, should be decriminalized. Seems a really nasty individual (as well as having been one of the worst expenses cheats in Parliament).
Well, there it is. The Jews (Jew Zionists) have retaken the Labour fortress that is now a ruin, and are wiping out remnants of “old Labour” (socialist Labour) found here and there.
I shed no tears for Corbyn. I have never been a Labour Party supporter, member, or even voter. Corbyn was weak on the “JQ”; opposing Israel, yes, but at the same time weaselling by paying lip-service to the “holocaust” farrago, to Jewish holidays etc. He should have come out fully against the (((Lobby))) and its pernicious influence over politics, culture, migration-invasion, law etc in the UK. Corbyn allowed the Jewish/Zionist lobby to crush him and, with him, what was left of the Labour Party.
This situation might be hopeful for social nationalism. Now that there is in reality —and clearly-seen— one System party, notionally split into “Labour” and “Conservative”, the people can see that only a new movement (not just party, but movement) can lead them against those fake parties of decadence and evil.
The trouble with that is that such a party would be akin to the Labour Party that lost, in 2019, the General Election, and lost it not because any other party was preferred to Labour, but because former Labour voters refused to vote Labour or at all…
The real British people will not vote for an old-style “socialist” party and especially not for one that wants a black-brown/mixed-race Britain. Not in numbers large enough to form a government.
Any new Corbyn party might become a significant force though, in that it would get the votes of many of the ethnic minorities, as well as some of the votes of public service personnel and metro virtue-signallers.
If Corbyn Labour got about 32% of the popular vote at the 2019 General Election (the Conservative Party nearly 44%), then any new Corbyn party would probably get about 15% at best. On a good day, 20%; on a bad day, 10%. Not enough to win very many MPs, in all likelihood, but enough to finish off official Labour under Starmer. Hm…
If, in any general election in the next 4 years, official Labour were to get, say, 20% or 25%, then its cadre of MPs will reduce to double figures.
That says it all…
Incidentally, did I read somewhere that Keir Starmer and his Jewish wife have buy-to-let properties? Not sure.
Remember George Osborne, that nasty little part-Jew who was Chancellor until a few years ago? Remember how his Big Idea was that fracking would be Britain’s bold new frontier, firing up the “Northern Powerhouse” (his other Big Idea)? Well that was then.
Today, the “Northern Powerhouse” is just a political footnote. As for fracking, after being stalled by reason of its environmental effects, it has been killed off by the fall in oil prices. Not only in the UK; USA and Canada too. Today, oil prices fell further: “Brent was trading 3.5 per cent down at $37.74, while WTI stood down 3.6 per cent at $36.05.” [City AM]. Fracking is completely uneconomic below USD $40 (some say $60) a barrel.
As for Osborne, I don’t know what it is about the British, but they always imagine that whatever political careerist or chancer becomes Chancellor of the Exchequer, he is some kind of genius. Then, it was George Osborne, and before him others such as Nigel Lawson and Denis Healey, inter alia. Now it is Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak. (Healey was in fact highly educated and cultured, though basically an enemy; a Bilderberger and globalist).

“[Critics] were essentially saying that Jews were liars [about “antisemitism” in Labour]“, says Gideon Falter of the malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake charity. Well, his own evidence in trials, given on oath, has not always been accepted by the criminal or other courts: see, for example, the Rowan Laxton case.
Kay Burley is not really interviewing Gideon Falter; she is facilitating him and his propaganda.
Note the (((typical))) arrogant Zionist triumphalism: Falter tells Labour what must be done…
Had Corbyn and his cohorts come out fully and forcefully against the Jewish-Zionist lobby, it might have been a gamechanger in British politics. As it is, the matter remains unresolved, and the struggle goes on.

Took a look at the statistics for 2020. So far, tens of thousands of hits from nearly 10,000 individuals. With four full months to go until the end of the year, the number of hits already exceeds the figure for 2019 by about 7%, but the best aspect is that the number of individuals has jumped by 25%. It will be interesting to see the final figures for this year.
The number of “likes” from other WordPress users is also up, but few are ever given (on anyone’s blog) anyway. I had to laugh at the number (as of today) though: 88! True… Is it synchronicity?
Most readers of blogs do not belong to the platform, whether WordPress or other, so the number of “likes” means little. Most blogs get only a few in any given month. Likewise with comments. WordPress blogs are not like social media accounts such as Twitter.
Why does one bother? It is a way of influencing society, even if in a very small way; on the other hand, “one human soul is a big audience“, which I always think was said either by St. Thomas Aquinas or St. Dominic, or maybe even St. Augustine of Hippo, but in fact I have never been able to find the citation.
Who knows who might read my blog and be influenced by it? The next young Alexander? Perhaps a young reader who, after I leave this Earth in my present incarnation, will create the new civilization which I myself, at least so far, have been unable to bring to life and power.
A few “thoughts out of season”
I am 64 years of age in a few days’ time, though I do not —usually!— feel it. Two years until I am 66, in 2022. 2022 can be expressed as a 6 (2+0+2+2), and (by one system of numerology) the number of my name (Ian Robert Millard) is 666, though I should add that I am scarcely a —let alone the—“Beast”!
Like “the stars in their courses“, I “fight on the side of the just” (an ancient Chinese saying).
2022 is the next world-historic year. The last, 33 years before 2022, was 1989, the key year in the collapse of socialism across the world. Socialism did not collapse in one year alone, of course. It had been slowly dying for decades, indeed since the previous year in that 33-year cycle, meaning 1956 (also the year of my own birth).
When I say “socialism” here, I refer to all post-1945 varieties, from the kind of social democratic idea seen in postwar UK, Sweden, New Zealand etc through to the extreme versions seen in the Soviet Union, China, Albania etc. True, China still has and is ruled by the Communist Party, but that party rules over a society completely capitalist. Yes, there are a few unimportant remnants of ruined socialism here and there: Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela (which only became notionally socialist in the 1990s, though there were socialistic elements in Venezuelan society in the 1950s and 1960s). The point is that these countries are exceptions, and poverty-stricken exceptions. The mainstream of the world has moved on from old-style socialism.
After 1989, the Soviet Union ceased to exist as a socialist state, though the Soviet Union continued in name until 1991.
After 1989 and the —superficially— unsuccessful Tiananmen Square protest, “socialism” became a figleaf covering only, just like “aristocracy” has been for a long time in UK society. Deng Xiaoping had said that no-one cared what colour was a cat, so long as it catches mice. That was why socialism had to be superseded, because as an economic model it “does not work”.
In the UK, the social democratic idea was fully espoused after the Second World War, certainly from 1956, by all three “main parties” (the two real main parties —Conservative and Labour— and the joke Liberal Party). That consensus (“democratic socialist” Labour, in existence in essence since the late 19thC, and “One Nation” Conservatism, also deriving originally from the late 19thC and Disraeli) broke down in the 1980s.
In the 1990s, the “Conservatives” travelled to a more finance-capitalist, anti-Welfare State position. “Labour” dropped “Clause 4” (which notionally committed the party to widespread nationalization —socialization— of the economy). Within a few years, after 1997, Labour had become completely “cosmopolitan finance-capitalist” under Tony Blair and the Jew Mandelson, who declared that he was “intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich“.
While the Jew Mandelson held secret meetings with Rothschilds and “Russian” Jew oligarchs in Corfu villas and elsewhere, Attlee and Bevan rotated in their graves, and the remaining “socialist” element in Labour seethed, led by the dissident MP, Jeremy Corbyn.
Despite much talk, the “socialist” Labour element under Corbyn and, before that, Ed Miliband, was unable to struggle successfully against the Zeitgeist. The General Elections of 2015, 2017 and 2019 proved that old-style socialism is dead. That despite public disquiet at the weakening and partial dismantling of the “Welfare State”, mainly under the Conservative Party governments since 2010.
In fact, that weakening of the UK “Welfare State”, though intensified after 2010, had started long before, and was in evidence during the Blair-Brown years 1997-2010. For example, the disgraceful ATOS organization was given its first contracts not by the Conservative Party governments (2010, 2015, 2017 and 2019), but by the Labour governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown (1997, 2001, 2005, 2007): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atos#Atos_Healthcare.
People in the UK tend to think that policy is made by individual governments, when in fact there has always been a “deep state” element underneath, carried on in secret, or in semi-secrecy. The influence of, inter alia, freemasonry, Common Purpose, the Jew-Zionist element, the Bilderberg element etc are all part of that. Look at Welfare State policy since, say, 1997. There have been differences between and within parties, but the main themes continued beneath the surface chatter.
As we move to the next significant year, 2022, we see that neither old-style socialism/social democracy nor finance-capitalism satisfies the needs of the people. A new movement is required, both in the sense of a “party” or political organization, and in the sense of a movement in and of society.”

Time moves on
I found this graphic from 2018, not seen for quite a while. It was produced by the Jew-Zionist (and misnamed) “Hope Not Hate” crowd. It shows those who met (in my case, once, at a clifftop cafe, because someone thought reliable had asked me) a young Swede whose real name is said to be Patrik Hermansson, and who posed in 2017 as a Swedish student called Erik Hellberg. Personally, I think that “The Rat” suits him better, but that’s just me…
It will be noted that I was placed, as if a denizen of a contemporary “Inferno“, in the circle of the “holocaust” “deniers” [bottom right of the graphic].
I tend to be rather anti-social both in the ordinary meaning and politically. I do not mix much, in fact scarcely at all. For all that, I can see that political life has moved on in the intervening <2 years.
Some people have become more prominent (Alison Chabloz for one), others have retreated from the limelight: Jez Turner, Stead Steadman, Colin Robertson (“Millennial Woes”) etc. The London Forum is inactive. The “alt-Right” in the USA (as far as I can tell —I do not keep up with all that in detail) has developed a sharper edge, it seems.
The graphic does not of course purport to be a comprehensive map of the “nationalist” side of UK/US politics. As for the work of “The Rat”, he was wasting his time. His paymasters at “Hope Not Hate” eventually produced a film, but it sank like a stone. I think (not sure) that it did get a screening on Channel 4 or Channel 5 around midnight one evening, and the same in Belgium and Sweden. I myself cannot recall seeing it.
The most interesting aspect of that graphic is what is not there: “lone wolves” in the UK and elsewhere, German rural-sanctuary nationalists and national socialists, those setting up a mini-ethnostate in the Pacific North West of the USA etc.
In fact, the behaviour of the pseudo-socialists and “antifa” idiots really highlights the sheer bankruptcy of their socio-political position or stance. They beg to be masked, muzzled, controlled, restricted by the State. They have nothing at all to offer in terms of policy or a way forward for society.
You see the same phenomena in the UK, the “anti-racist” and “antifa” types whose life revolves around trolling people on Twitter, saying negative things about those they deem “fascist” or “neo-Nazi” etc. They know nothing, have no real ideology, and put forward no programme of their own. Politically irrelevant.
…and look [below] at these idiots, sitting talking while wearing facemask muzzles! Complete idiots. This really is a ******* farce, but most people are too polite or too compliant or too brainwashed to say anything!
Listened to BBC Radio 4 Profile about Dido Harding: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dido_Harding. Sounds like she is the sort of person who gets into highly paid positions (eg at Talk Talk, where she was paid millions for failure) because of whom she knows rather than what she knows (or does). A modified and female example of the Peter Principle [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_principle], except that she has been appointed to her present position having serially failed in others. Pathetic country, pathetic government.
What a load sheeple on here. You are being conned into wearing a face mask. Didn't you see the demo in Berlin.
The fat man in his muzzle is [update: tweet gone] typical of the aggressive and/or mentally-disturbed facemask zealots who have been emboldened by the ludicrous fake “law” being misused by Boris-idiot, little Matt Hancock, Cressida Dick etc.
Below, “antifa” gassed! I’m lovin’ it (even though I think that Trump is completely unfit for public office)!
Hitchens is right as far as he goes, but fails, once again, to point out that Boris-idiot’s most significant characteristics come not from his few years at Eton (or Oxford) but from the fact that he is part-Jew, part-Turk/Levantine, born in New York City, brought up as child in Washington DC, New York and in Brussels. He is at least half-foreign, in short. Of course “Boris” is not really English in attitude, because he is not really English!
It's not 'paying for the virus'. It's paying for the lockdown policies that many of us never wanted, agreed to, or believed were necessary.
Most NHS doctors are saying nothing because, quite simply, just as Aneurin Bevan said that he had overcome the opposition of the BMA and doctors to the establishment of the NHS by “stuffing their mouths with gold” (relatively high salaries and the chance to do private work on the side etc), Boris-idiot and little Matt Hancock have stuffed the mouth of today’s NHS doctors with more gold, via immediate 4.5% pay rises for less work done…
Hitchens may or may not be aware of it, but Americans have always treated their prisoners, especially political prisoners and/or prisoners of war, very badly. Those suspected of being involved in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln were kept muzzled and with hoods over their heads for months in some cases.
Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, who was briefly touted as a future UK Prime Minister when he started throwing money around to ameliorate the effects of his own government’s policies, established the “eat out to help out” programme. 50% off, up to £10 a head, I believe. Well, I just heard anecdotal evidence:
A lady I know went to a seaside cafe/restaurant one morning recently. Her purchase was modest, a single cup of coffee. When she went to pay (£2.20), she was told that she only had to pay £1.10 because of that scheme. A woman also waiting to pay then chimed in to the effect that her family now dined out three times a week because it made eating out almost as cheap as eating in.
Well, that lady whose family use restaurants three times a week and get a discount for it may enjoy the scheme, but the whole thing is being paid for by the public as a whole; by the poor too, who may not pay much in income tax but who certainly pay VAT and, if employed, National Insurance.
Why should the people as a whole pay to subsidize the cafe visits and restaurant excursions of the rich, the affluent and the comfortably-off? Like so many government policies now, there is just no logic and no justice behind it.
A very striking piece of architecture, quite exciting, and I do not hate it as much as tweeter “Western Traditionalist”, but I hear what he (or she) says. It is a symptom of cultural decadence, for sure.
As for the “architecture” below, that really is just disgusting, and should be demolished or destroyed.
Presumably a representation of some organ of the human body (?), or maybe some sea-creature, plonked down in the midst of what seems to be a town in Southern Germany:
