Anti-Covid vaccine discussion— proposed laws

The Party Formerly Known As Labour is pushing for a law to prevent anyone discussing online and negatively the anti-Covid vaccines currently under development.

Things have slid so fast in Britain that such a measure seems almost normal; to have an “urgent” law passed (at present only proposed, and only by Labour) which would have the sole aim of stifling or gagging discussion and views on a contentious bit of public policy.

One can see where the idea came from. Keir Starmer is married to a Jewish woman, a property lawyer, and their children are being brought up as Jewish. The “holocaust” narrative is protected from debate, analysis, or questioning in much of Western and Central Europe by means of “holocaust” “denial” laws, meaning that anyone questioning even part of that narrative faces prosecution.

Such laws can be compared to the religious heresy laws which were in force in much of Catholic Europe in the late Middle Ages and Renaissance eras.

It is natural for Keir Starmer, a former Director of Public Prosecutions, to see repressive law, or police and other punitive action, as the answer to a perceived problem of public belief in, or compliance with, government requirements. He believes in repression.

This kneejerk reaction, to ban any expression of dissent, is very much a sign of the times.

The conventional political wisdom is to think that, now that Labour is supposedly less “extreme” after the departure of Corbyn, the party is more “electable”. Perhaps, in Britain’s rigged binary system, which posits a “choice” between two “major parties”. Also, we have a government which exhibits incompetence and muddle exceeding even that of the previous decade. However, I would not put much money on Labour. It is still a party wedded to mass immigration, political correctness etc, still replete with black MPs, still full of petty would-be dictators such as Yvette Cooper and Rachel Reeves (both members of Labour Friends of Israel, incidentally).

While we are on the subject of System politics, consider the transnational element in the ZOG/NWO set-up. For example, Yvette Cooper went to work for then Presidential nominee Bill Clinton in Arkansas in 1992, after having left university but after a brief time also working as a researcher for the then Shadow Chancellor, John Smith. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yvette_Cooper#Early_life_and_education.

Another case: the present New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, worked for the Labour Party in London sometime around 2002 as a Special Adviser (paid £50,000-£100,000 p.a.), before she returned to NZ politics.

Trump

Trump needs to extend Presidential pardon to all social-national or allied prisoners doing time in Federal prisons. Stick it to “antifa” and other swine!

Yes. Better-connected people in the Soviet Union had better hospitals. I met someone once who had been operated on in the Botkin Clinic [https://www.lonelyplanet.com/russia/moscow/information/botkin-hospital/a/poi-inf/1044137/360429; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergey_Botkin], which at that time (1980s) was considered one of the best, outside of the Kremlin Clinic https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Clinical_Hospital, which still exists today:

Главный и хирургический корпуса ЦКБ.jpg
[The “Kremlin Clinic”, near Moscow]

A Soviet-era poetic line about the Kremlin Clinic read, “The floors parquet, the doctors OK“, meaning politically-vetted (it rhymes in Russian): полы паркетные, врачи анкетные.

Again, yes. When my local GP (a nice fellow) was on paternity leave last year or the year before, he was replaced for the duration by a far more pro-active young doctor who improved my (high blood pressure, mainly) medication. Despite the fact that I only attend the medical centre about once a year, I was sorry to read in the newsletter the practice puts out that he had relocated to London to join a purely private practice. I looked up that practice online. Based in Kensington, and I noticed that a home visit was charged from about £250!

I have to say that that young doctor must have been very driven, because after all most GPs now get over £100,000 anyway, especially if partners, and if they practise in an area such as this they can play golf, sail, ride etc. In other words, they can live a rather pleasant lifestyle. Well, there it is…

…though anyone actually disappointed in Boris-idiot as Prime Minister was far too optimistic to start with…

The woman arrested (with a degree of brutality, at that) cries out, “I have not done anything!”, as if that matters in the Britain of 2020 (cf. Alison Chabloz).

At what point does the “Overton window” move to the extent that it becomes accepted that former British “democracy and freedom” have been subverted, and therefore that it is acceptable to do whatever it takes to restore our liberties?

It is not often that I agree with Dan Hodges! In an extraordinary year, this stands out. Britain is, arguably, now run by the “ho” (to use the now-ubiquitous black argot) of the part-Jew chancer currently posing as Prime Minister!

Who is Carrie Symonds? This is what Wikipedia says: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie_Symonds.

A degree in art history and theatre studies, then Miss Symonds joined the Conservative Party in the lowly position of one of many press officers. Nine years later, she was heading that department, but “It was reported that she was asked to leave her post as director of communications after sources claimed party chiefs had said her performance was poor, and questions were raised over significant unjustified expenses claims.” [Wikipedia]

I notice that Miss Symonds was appointed to head the department in which she had worked for many years in 2018, the same year in which she started her affair with the still-married “Boris”.

“It’s not what you know but who you know”…(or should that be “It’s not what you know but by whom you are known”, using “known” in the “Biblical” or “Ugandan” sense?)…

Miss Symonds is an advocate for animal welfare. I like that. However, as Hodges says, this is no way to run a government.

Laura Towler and her husband, of Patriotic Alternative, were attacked by three “antifa” swine yesterday, but beat them off. This has generated very many tweets.

Brave lady. What a contrast to the “Mike Stuchbery” types…

Alison Chabloz

A reminder to all that Alison Chabloz will be put on trial at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, 181 Marylebone Road, London, on Tuesday 17 November. That is the day after tomorrow. All supporters welcome. THe nearest Underground stations are Edgware Road (District, Circle, Bakerloo) and Marylebone (Bakerloo). The trial is expected to start at 1000 hrs.

The Sunday Times? Murdoch. NWO. ZOG. Lugenpresse. Judenpresse.

One less. On the general point, if a woman attacks a man in any serious way, she gets what she gets.

They don’t want Israel flooded by (non-Jewish) immigrants, though!

Interesting video

Watching that Schwab “Great Reset” video above reminded me of the opinion of Max Planck, who said that most scientists [and therefore people in general] are not convinced by theories, facts or new facts, but that once that sceptical generation is replaced by a new generation brought up with those new facts, the new theory becomes accepted wisdom.

That is what the propaganda is aimed at— the younger generation, including young children. What propaganda? Not just the “Coronavirus” stuff, but also “Black Lives Matter”, the whole racemixing agenda, all sorts of associated stuff too. The Great Reset. The Great Replacement. White Genocide.

It is not aimed against people born( like me) in 1956, nor at those born in 1966, or 1976, or even 1986. It is aimed at those born in the 1990s, the 2000s and the 2010s.

Late tweets

The problem with that view is that the “Judenpresse” is, and for a long time has been, owned, controlled or very strongly influenced by the Jew-Zionist element. The Internet promised —and briefly delivered on that promise— to provide free expression, but “they” are now reasserting control, and only the harshest resistance will prevent that.

Peter Hitchens’ view of “Press freedom” is very out of date.

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”.

Alison Chabloz

It has been confirmed that persecuted satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz will be put on trial (yet again), on Tuesday 17 November at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in Marylebone Road, London. I link to details of the court address below: https://courttribunalfinder.service.gov.uk/courts/westminster-magistrates-court

picture of the court or tribunal building
[Westminster Magistrates’ Court, 181 Marylebone Road, London NW1]

The nearest Underground stations are at Edgware Road (Circle Line, District Line, or Bakerloo line stations) and Marylebone (Bakerloo). Several buses also stop close to the court building.

Anyone wishing to support Alison Chabloz in her latest ordeal should attend court at or before 1000 hrs on Tuesday, though spectators can enter the courtroom at any time during the trial, which will last at least one day (doors open at 0900 hrs).

This latest prosecution has been instigated by the malicious fake charity, the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”, members of which were also behind most of the other prosecutions, failed prosecutions, and other complaints made against Alison over the past several years. Details can be found via the “search” function on this WordPress blog.

At present, it seems that Alison’s trial will be presided over by the Chief Magistrate for England and Wales.

Anyone who can attend to support Alison will be welcome.

The Haaretz article noted by Griffin: https://www.haaretz.com/1.4764706

The problem is…that the majority of people in the UK are brainless once you get beyond the practical issues of everyday domestic life.

…and note that the policewoman’s appeal is not “this is against the law” but “this is the rule” and “the Prime Minister has said”…in other words, we in the UK are now living in a police state (albeit as yet a toytown one) and under a form of dictatorship (albeit a cretinously incompetent one).

Tweeter “Jane” is typical of the pseudo-socialist Twitterati. Supports “lockdown” (shutdown), the facemask nonsense, untrammeled police powers, the whole System scam around the “panicdemic”. A social worker and former teacher, she says. My guess? Real knowledge (probably) very poor, and politically-correct to the max.

Here she is, tweeting in favour of the present incompetent Conservative Party government though she would no doubt prefer the police-state measures to be enforced by a “Labour” government, preferably headed by Corbyn (who of course is yesterday’s news, as dead as a dodo).

When you see tweets by people like that, you realize anew why “Labour” has little chance of forming a government, even under Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer (to whom the msm are now suddenly friendly).

Another example of how the “measures”, “advice”, (purported) “rules” and (purported) “laws” proclaimed by this incompetent “we can do whatever we can get away with” “government” of sinister clowns is destroying the very idea of “a society under law” (not “laws”).

Panicdemic news

I read that, in the local government area in which I live (coastal Hampshire/Dorset border), 3 people have (supposedly) died of “the virus” in the past week. That is out of a total population, within the district council area, of about 180,000. So one person out of every 60,000…Sad for the people affected, but statistically close to zero.

Admittedly, this is a very widely spread area of about 4 or 5 small or very small towns, some villages, many isolated houses, farms and farming estates. Still, 1 out of every 60,000. Risk? Minimal.

This McLachlan cartoon [below] is rather topical (unsurprisingly, having been first published only recently, in August 2020):

Brave (from a distance) “antifa” cheerleader Mike Stuchbery (a sacked temporary teacher) commends State repression of this sort. Not a word of concern from him about a repressive emergent UK police state “pulling out of class” a boy who had been (allegedly) giving out a few leaflets…

I have written about Stuchbery previously: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/.

Here, his latest words of political “wisdom”:

Typically, Stuchbery fantasizes about “putting down” people with whose view he disagrees. “What goes around comes around”…

Looks as though Stuchbery did not take his medication (he has mental problems) this evening:

Well, I think that it becomes obvious why Stuchbery is no longer even a temporary teacher! He hopes that a boy whose only “crime” (which was probably not in fact a “crime” even in 2020 Britain) was to (allegedly) give out leaflets is placed in a State brainwash programme (“Prevent”).

I bet that Stuchbery wishes that he had the power to have the boy (and anyone else with whom Stuchbery disagrees) put in a prison or camp.

Oh, by the way, have a look at my blog post about him to see more about “brave” Stuchbery, and his meltdowns…

Also, note how he brings up the “panicdemic”, as if that bolsters his “argument”.

More tweets

Stuchbery thinks himself an expert on National Socialism (which he usually confuses with “Fascism”). My blog post about him noted a few of his ludicrous errors, but he makes many more. Incidentally, he “self-identifies” as both “historian” and “journalist”, without being —or ever having been— either.

I notice that my blog post of a year or so ago about Stuchbery has proven to be one of my most popular. Thousands of people have read it.

If Trump or any of his cohorts are reading this, my suggestion for a Parthian shot [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parthian_shot] is this: extend Presidential pardon to as many social-national, ordinary nationalist and/or anti-“antifa” prisoners as you can. Pardon them all, in their hundreds, and let the chips fall where they may!

UKIP, Brexit Party etc are just “controlled opposition”

I happened to see the tweets below. The first are from Gerard Batten and Henry Bolton, two of the former leaders of whatever is left of UKIP.

The other tweeters seem to have both more logic and more commonsense than the two would-be “leaders”:

From Batten, complete lack of understanding that “race is the root-stock, culture is the flower“…

Look at this exchange:

What hope was there for UKIP, when its own former leaders are unsure whether, had they been born in Japan (eg in transit), or lived there, they would be Japanese? What a bunch of clowns!

Looks as though Batten needs to look at the Nuremberg Laws (the real ones, not the Jew-Zionist “edited highlights”…

UKIP is of course on a very different page vis a vis my own ideological basis. It never was social-national, and was never heavily attacked by the Jew element in the msm, a very bad sign (individual Jews tweeted etc against UKIP, but the core Zionist element was untroubled by it). UKIP was always given Press coverage, TV coverage; Farage the con-man extraordinaire was forever on Newsnight, Question Time, the TV news etc. Permitted opposition. Controlled opposition.

When UKIP was still a functioning party with a real chance of forming a small House of Commons bloc, I tweeted about it quite frequently. I am talking about between 2010-2015. After 2015, I understood that UKIP’s chance had gone (in fact, it peaked around 2014), cheated as it was by the UK’s pseudo-democratic electoral system: 12.6% of the national vote but only a small fraction of 1% of the MPs, in fact only 1 MP out of 650 (and he was a defected Conservative Party MP anyway).

I did blog a little about UKIP in the runup to the 2017 General Election. I knew that it would sink like a stone. The only reason that I now blog about it (for the first time in about a year) is because I saw those absurd Batten tweets. I was not going to blog today, but I can tack this bit about UKIP onto the start of tomorrow’s blog post.

UKIP has almost fallen into obscurity. Its not-bad 2015 General Election percentage (12.6%) fell to 1.8% in 2017, under the dim Paul Nuttall; that was the first decline in national vote-share that UKIP had ever suffered since its foundation. The 2019 General Election result was even worse: under the ludicrous Patricia Mountain, UKIP’s vote fell to 0.1%, i.e. one vote out of every thousand.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_United_Kingdom_general_election#Full_results

In fact, so obscure is UKIP now that I realize that I was scarcely aware of some of its leaders of recent years.

The tweet/reply below, by one Valerie Leppard, made me laugh (though at the same time despair at the naivety displayed):

Ms. Leppard makes much of the fact that human beings all have 99% similar DNA. That is true. In fact it is said to be considerably higher than 99% similarity. On the other hand, chimpanzees share 96% of their DNA with humans, cats share up to 90%, and even bananas share 60%! https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/human-dna-share-cats-cattle-mice-same-genetics-code-a8292111.html

How far do such facts take you? I was once a guest at a private tennis club in North London. I had gone out of politeness. Despite having played occasionally since childhood, I still scarcely know the rules or how to play properly; anyone who knows me knows that I am not very sport-oriented. I did once score a direct hit from some distance with a tennis ball, on the bottom of a Ukrainian lady who had stooped to pick up another ball, but that hardly counts!

That London tennis club was rather formal. You had to wear the right clothing etc; it also had a pleasant bar, from which one could watch people playing. I saw a doubles match and, to my untutored eye, they looked not much different from the professionals who play at Wimbledon. Of course they were different, and that is the point. There was a far greater gulf between my inept level of play and the doubles-players than there was between them and the Wimbledon champions.

Champions, or the top people in every category of activity, are ipso facto better than almost all others. However, they may not be much better than a mass, perhaps a vast mass, just below that championship level. It is that tiny amount of edge that makes the difference.

Applying that to races and, yes, in big-picture “scientific” terms the DNA of the Northern European is very very close to other peoples, and even to the most backward peoples. It is that tiny difference that, all the same, matters.

In your nothing I hope to find my everything“; “In deinem Nichts hoff ‘ ich, das All zu finden“[Goethe, Faust; Faust answering Mephistopheles, who has said that Faust’s belief is nothing].

Well, leaving such observations and reverting to the mundane world of UK politics as it is, and UKIP, I notice that even Wikipedia has found little to say of some of the post-Farage “leaders” of UKIP. In one case, that of someone called Wauchope, apparently (never heard of him), even the year of his birth is uncertain!

UKIP is said still to have 25,000 members, though I doubt that.

I see that one Freddy Vachha is now the “leader” of this embarrassing joke of a party. An Indian accountant. The tide has gone out, leaving some odd bits and pieces on the sand.

Regular readers of this blog will recall the encounters I had with a couple of similar brainwashed would-be lecturing idiots a while ago.

If staff in businesses, or anyone else, act like cartoon labour camp overseers or prison guards, then they must expect to be laughed at.

Resist the facemask nonsense! Only wear a facemask if you really have no choice, and if you do wear a mask, make sure that you do so in a manner that makes it clear that you mock the nonsense and the government of clowns. Laugh at those who take it all seriously. Laugh at the rabbits!

The Army, Navy, Marines are all recruiting now on TV. They are finding it hard going to recruit many. I wonder why? Could it be that potential recruits realize that the armed services have become a joke? Also, that they abandon their people once their useful service has ended?

Take a look at Twitter. The Jewish-Zionist cabal on Twitter constantly tweets in favour of the migrant-invaders, “generously” wanting more to invade us. Yes, that Jewish mob on Twitter are all wonderfully generous with other people’s money, State funds etc, wanting the UK to take in anyone who manages to get here, no matter how hostile or useless. The same is true of “refugees welcome” dimwits and hypocrites such as Gary Lineker, Yvette Cooper, Lily Allen and all the other usual suspects.

Batten is too late. Regular readers of my blog will know that I suggested at least a year ago that Harry and the Royal Mulatta should (and would) relocate from the UK to Southern California.

I went on to suggest that they become a “reality TV” sitcom mix, perhaps living a pseudo-“royal” life in a little house; just Harry, the Mulatta, their baby, the dog (if not abandoned) and a butler, a Benson type. “Royal Married with Children“, with the Mulatta running her henpecked “cuck” husband ragged with impossible demands, as she tries to be a contender for political positions.

Sometimes I think that I am a male Cassandra, always predicting accurately, but rarely listened to…

Well, “historian” (TV presenter) Neil Oliver may be belatedly speaking up for some free speech now, but I seem to recall that he tweeted against me years ago when I still had a Twitter account. I have never seen anything from him supporting me, eg when I was disbarred for posting 5 tweets (out of 150,000+) on socio-political matters. I likewise did not see him support Jez Turner (imprisoned for making a speech) or Alison Chabloz (persecuted, prosecuted and convicted for singing satirical songs).

I also recall how biased Oliver was when some matters involving WW2 came up on his TV show, Coast.

Scotland does seem to be even worse on free speech than England. The combined influence of Jew-Zionism, freemasonry, Common Purpose (Police Scotland is riddled with both of the last two) and post-socialist SNP petty authoritarianism.

Ironic. What does Batten think that UKIP were? Quite. Controlled opposition. Just like Brexit Party, Tommy Robinson, Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, Katie Hopkins etc.

Only machineguns can sort out this upsurge of madness in the USA. What it says to me is not “there is disorder now” but “if the US system ever weakens greatly, which is quite possible, there will be civil war“. Those unpleasant scenes may well be just the start.

I noticed in Waitrose that Ben & Jerry’s icecream is not selling, and has been reduced in price as a consequence. Don’t bother to sabotage it. Just boycott it.

What will that hotel (and Britain) be like in 20+ years? I wonder… https://www.theguardian.com/cities/gallery/2016/may/05/mozambique-abandoned-grande-hotel-beira-squatters-ruins-in-pictures

Although Beira is the popular resort on the Indian Ocean, the hotel has never been able to attract many visitors.

Hard to know what to think. The Greenland ice cover is vast and deep, certainly, and Wikipedia says that “If the Greenland ice sheet were to melt away completely, the world’s sea level would rise by more than 7 m (23 ft).

If that were to happen, a scenario that has interested me since the late 1970s (along with the possible melting of polar ice proper, both from Arctic and Antarctic), then most of the major cities of the world would be drowned, situated as most are on or near sea-level.

A rise of 23ft would flood much of London, New York, Tokyo, St. Petersburg, to name only a few of the most obvious.

On the other hand, we know that Greenland has been at times warmer than it now is. The Vikings farmed there; there are remains of farmsteads from quite ancient times, certainly from the first millennium AD: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland#History.

Not all of Greenland is ice and snow, however. In that vast land, over nine times the size of the UK, there is farming, in the southern part, by the coast.

I doubt that humanity can do much to change the climate in a significant way, but the issue is naturally one of utmost seriousness.

Less seriously, I just read that “Greenlandic coffee is a “flaming” dessert coffee (set alight before serving) made with coffee, whiskey, Kahlúa, Grand Marnier, and whipped cream. It is stronger than the familiar Irish dessert coffee.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland#Cuisine. After a few of those, the sting of living in Greenland must at least be made less painful!

Rule Britannia

If you went, as orchestral conductor, or as ordinary tourist, to another country, and then tried to trash the traditional festivals of that country, you would be jeered at and quite possibly attacked or deported. In Britain, all sorts of oddities arrive, aided by traitors in the BBC etc, and want to disrespect us. I know that Rule Britannia is now simply an expression of an Empire that no longer exists, but it does stand for part of the national psyche. The part not yet contaminated. It must not be blotted out by the “woke”, the non-whites, the cosmopolitan Jews etc. As performed at the Proms, it is both emotional and fun. It must remain.

As the Irish may say, “Jay-sus! Will ya look at this ee-jit?!” (Boris Idiot): https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8584445/Over-50s-face-stay-home-order-nuclear-plans-drawn-Boris-Johnson.html

Millions of overs 50s could be given orders to stay at home as part of Boris Johnson‘s ‘nuclear plans’ to avoid another national lockdown.” [Daily Mail]

The latest statistics show 4,000 infections per day, but well under 100 deaths per day (yesterday 74, the day before 10, I think; these figures inflated anyway) from or with “the virus”.

It seems that, at present, 1 person dies for every 80-400 persons known to be infected. Many are infected but show no symptoms, so the real figure for the death rate (even taking the deaths figure as accurate) may be 1 death per 5,000 or even 10,000 infected.

It does not surprise me that the ludicrously misnamed SAGE committee (I prefer DUMB— Department Under Matt and Boris) is worried about public disorder. Incidentally, it it their job or their business to worry about that aspect? I think not. I suppose that that is what happens when proper government and administration is replaced by dystopian nonsense from people like Dominic Cummings.

I (like the “Government”) have been surprised to see how compliant and easy to scare and corral and order about the British people have been, but there is (probably) a limit.

The idea that the clown currently posing as Prime Minister can “order” anyone over 50 to “stay home” in a form of house arrest for months, or even years, is absurd. Even leaving aside the legalities, how would that even be enforced?

We have seen how compliant the rabbits of the UK are, but such a measure would certainly be unenforceable. For one thing, there are many who, though over 50, and even over 60 (like me) do not —on a good day!— look over 50. The police cannot check everyone’s age and, in the UK, people do not have to carry any ID or age papers, legally. So will the Handmaid’s Tale militia now used by supermarkets be checking passports at the door? This is unbelievable!

I shall, if such an “order” is ever given, be “49” for the duration, just like an ageing Hollywood actress.

In any case, I doubt whether many shops would actually enforce an “under-50s only” policy, firstly because that would wipe out half their trade (and many would buy as little as possible online to punish those retailers); secondly, such a policy by shops would surely be contra “equalities” laws, though admittedly that was never my area of expertise when I was at the Bar.

The “Government” (of clowns) has painted itself into a corner. Instead of taking sensible and limited measures early, such as stopping most inward flights, shooting “refugees” (migrant-invaders) in the Channel, closing pubs, nightclubs and crowded sporting and other events for the duration or at least for a few months, and stopping the Underground, other train services and other public transport, the idiots ordered the “lockdown” (shutdown of the economy). Result? A collapsing economy and little effect on “the virus”.

The next “policy” made up on the spur of the moment has been the facemask nonsense. “Holland’s top scientists said there’s no solid evidence coverings work and warn they could even damage the fight against Covid-19” [Daily Mail, 2 August 2020]

Kate Nicholls, of Hospitality UK, which represents pubs, restaurants and hotels, said shutting down ‘large chunks of the economy’ was a short-sighted strategy. 

We need to be focusing on collective efforts to drive down and control infections,’ she said, adding that the hospitality industry directly employs 3.2 million, with another two million reliant through supply chains. ‘It’s simply too big to just switch off. 

‘We would be talking about millions of people unemployed, a major loss of economic activity.‘” [Daily Mail]

One problem is that the people giving the ludicrous “orders” are people who have never actually run anything much, starting with part-Jew public entertainer Boris-idiot; then we have little Matt Hancock (did a year or so as a graduate teaboy at the Bank of England), Gavin Williamson (once a fireplace salesman with a pet spider), Dominic Cummings (tried to set up an airline in Russia 25 years ago; it failed after one flight); and let’s not forget the ivory tower merchants, Chris Whitty and idiotic Professor Ferguson (who said that 800,000 would die in the UK, and who broke his own rules by letting his married “ho” visit him during “lockdown”).

What a bunch of clowns! And we the people are expected to obey their confused and quite possibly unlawful decrees? Screw that.

More than “decimate”, if the word is used (as it now rarely is) properly.

Well, I agree with the tweets above, most of all the final one! There are thousands more to be seen, all on the same page.

Other tweets seen today

Of course, not only the police, the Security Service etc know the identity, but also most MPs and many if not most journalists at the national level.

The mask is really coming off now. The “English gent” persona carefully crafted by Johnson since he was about 12 is now being replaced by the part-Jew, part-Turk charlatan playing the despot. That comes naturally to him. Johnson after all is not really English. As said, a part-Jew, part-Turk, born in New York City, brought up in the USA and Belgium until sent to Eton and Oxford to acquire the fake “English toff” persona (mask). Hard to say whether his patent inability to actually be an effective Prime Minister is an aggravating factor or a blessing in disguise.

Disturbing report

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8584003/Footage-shows-police-violently-dragging-grieving-father-dying-six-year-old-daughter.html

Without going into the rights and wrongs, on the face of it this is more than a disturbing report about one particular case. It seems to show the way the police are going in the UK. Only 2 months ago, persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz had her bedroom invaded quite early in the morning by a whole crowd of (mostly non-white) police “officers”.

The “police state” in the UK may be a “toytown” one at present, usually, but it is clear where this is going.

Latest from the bunch of clowns “government”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8585181/Housing-Secretary-Robert-Jenrick-insists-bars-stay-open.html

Bars and pubs are the most likely places in which to transmit or get infected by “the virus”, so what does the government of clowns order? Pubs and bars can stay open and the customers can sit, drink, talk, shout or whatever without the requirement to wear a facemask or muzzle; but go next door to the supermarket and it’s “facemasks on or else!”. When did Britain become a country of scared unthinking rabbits ruled by clowns? I supposed that, like the Fall of the Roman Empire, it happened bit by bit, and almost unnoticed.

Imagine, a little pissant like Robert Jenrick posing as a Cabinet minister! Then again, Boris-idiot as Prime Minister…This whole situation veers between tragedy and farce.

Opinion polling

As usual, unsurprising. A government of clowns, and an official Opposition which weakly supports (with mild carping) whatever the clowns are doing. Result? In a situation where the polled are asked which of the “main parties” (in which select group is included, ludicrously, the all-but-dead LibDem party) they support, people just say one or the other of Con or Lab, without conviction, without interest, despising both almost equally.

African wildlife

Poachers must be sought out and killed off. Their bases as well.

Boris-idiot

I do not know whether Dan Hodges ever “sold out” (as Corbyn supporters claim), because I have no idea whether he ever had any real political beliefs or principles before he started to doormat for the Jewish lobby and the Conservative Party. All that can be said is that the article above is as fine a piece of sycophantic rubbish as I have seen for many a day. In fact, the tweet accompanying it hits the spot better.

Useful information

We never know what will happen in life. “Prepping” may not be as silly as many imagine…

I wonder whether many people would have imagined, say a year ago, that the UK government would shut down much of the economy, tell most people to stay at home unless shopping, and have the police going around harassing lone sunbathers on beaches, and elderly couples walking on the fells of the Peak District? Or that the entire population would be told to wear facemasks in shops etc, though not in pubs? Or on trains and buses, but not in offices?

Likewise, who would have thought, a year ago, that so-called “refugees” would be escorted across the Channel and put up in 4-star hotels (and given money on top) by the tough-talking “Conservative” government? Or that those detained ready to be deported would all be released?! Not many, I think.

How many of the over-50s, who were the ones that mainly voted “Conservative” in 2019, would have thought then that their being put under house arrest indefinitely would be a subject for serious discussion by the very government they had voted into unmerited office? Not many, I think.

TUI

So Tui is going to close down 166 travel agency shops. I suppose that that must add up to about 1,000 people losing their jobs. Tui is owned mainly by a Russian; for once a real one, not a Jew, but that has not improved his behaviour. He is supposedly worth USD $20 billion, and is the 4th-richest individual in Russia, yet in 2001, when already a billionaire, was paying only $600 a month to keep his ex-wife and their son alive…

Few in Russia would want the old Soviet system back, particularly the unfree sneaking and spying system run by the KGB (mainly the Second Chief Directorate), but the present system of oligarchy and near kleptocracy cannot last forever. Too many inequalities and, worse, too many inequities.

Of course, Tui closing its doors (only the offline ones) is not really a function of the Russian economy but solely of the UK one, meaning the mad “lockdown” shutdown.

Evening tweets seen

Yes. We are all used (in theory) to the idea of the “police state”, in which the state, and/or a dictator, tyrant, despot or fanatical political party imposes rule by force and penal laws.

What is so diabolically cunning about the present situation is that the public has in effect been scammed; fear has been weaponized. Not fear of the State or the police or the law, but of “the virus”. A fairly serious public health problem has been blown up into a deadly plague by which people will be killed.

Once the population internalized that fear, the other measures, such as police control, fines, social pressure, simply reinforced the feeling of social obedience or compliance.

The Charlottenburger Chaussee. There must be something like a hundred thousand there.

Well, it’s a start!

Diary Blog, 30-31 May 2020

In the name of God, go!

No, I am not talking about the egregious Dominic Cummings. I have already, some time ago, blogged my views about him:

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/

What I am talking about is this ridiculous Government-created panic, and its accompanying “lockdown”, shutdown, curfew and social nonsense. The “2 metre social distancing”, the shutdown of barbers, dentists, vets and other useful services; also, the pathetic facemask-wearers, the rabbits clapping like idiots every week (though not so much where I myself live); also, the toytown police (and their change from being protectors and crimefighters to being zookeepers, or guards in a dystopian, fake-communitarian open-air prison camp).

I am thoroughly sick of this whole and largely unnecessary nonsense, foisted upon a supine and useless public by an even less useful idiot posing as Prime Minister, a part-Jew public entertainer who is very obviously out of his depth in his present office.

I have just been trying to watch an episode of Inspector Morse, only to find it interrupted by the sort of advertisements common today, meaning a split-screen ad showing about 20 children, mostly non-European, howling some pop song and basically supporting both the lockdown/shutdown and the multikulti society from which the children have sprung.

As I have blogged previously, the unnecessary panic about the Coronavirus outbreak (more people in the UK were killed by “Hong Kong Flu” in 1968, without such measures taken, though I myself was at school in Australia at the time) has tested to destruction many long-held assumptions about UK society.

Tested and found wanting have been MPs, Parliament, the Government, the almost non-existent official Opposition, the police, the legal system, the Press and msm (especially the BBC).

Opinion polls seem to indicate that a sizeable proportion of the public, perhaps a majority, want the “lockdown” to continue, at least as far as not “allowing” (sending) people back to work in what used to be the normal way.

Why do so many people want to not “return to normal”? There are several aspects to this. We are told that the sole reason is because people are afraid that the “virus” will get them or their children. Really?

A child under 5 has about 1 chance in 20 million of dying from “Coronavirus” aka “Covid-19”; in fact, children and young people of any school or university age have virtually no chance of dying from “the virus”.

The msm has tried to brainwash the public into saying (as also happened in the AIDS panic of the 1980s) that “everyone is at risk” and/or “everyone has a equal chance of getting infected”. Well, it was certainly not true of HIV/AIDS (even heterosexual transmission was largely confined to non-Europeans, especially blacks), and it is not true of Coronavirus.

If the infected person shows no symptoms, it scarcely matters to that individual infected. The only issue is transmission to those at risk, which mainly means those over 70.

So far, even on the inflated figures produced by the NHS and Government, there have been (to put it harshly) “only” 38,000 deaths in the UK from or with “the virus”, and many in fact died from one of up to 4 other conditions. Even taking the statistics as they stand, it is only, roughly, 1 in about every 1,900-2,000 people resident in the UK.

For me, leaving aside the trashing of civil liberties etc, the bottom line is that a shutdown of the entire economy, or at least 80%-90% of the economy, cannot be sustained indefinitely. It cannot be sustained even for the time already spent, in fact.

Returning to why much of the public wants a continuation of “lockdown”, or a very gradual relaxation, I am afraid that I take a possibly cynical view, which however I think correct.

About 8.4 million employees are on “furlough” at time of writing, and are getting 80% of their pre-lockdown pay provided by the State. Some are also getting the remaining 20% topped-up by their employers.

When you take into account the costs of having a job (transport, clothing, lunches etc) this means that the furloughed employees are actually better-off than they are when working. They are getting the same income or more, but are spending far less, most shops, pubs etc being closed.

Admittedly, that would not apply to all employees, because of the cap imposed of £2,500 per month, but it would cover the vast majority.

Apart from the above, there is the point that, for many, this is like a holiday, albeit rather restricted. The roads have been empty, and are still relatively uncrowded; Nature has come back, and there are more birds visible and audible. There is a marked absence of drunken loutishness in some places, because the pubs and “clubs” (I mean those noisy crowded places many seem to like, not the Carlton or the Travellers) are closed.

People have few responsibilities at present if they are on furlough or other vacation. There is no need (or ability) to go to doctors, dentists, MOT garages, shops (except food shops) etc. No need (or ability) to make duty visits to relatives or others.

Barristers (as I once was) have no need to go to court (with some exceptions); vicars need not take church services or tend to their flock directly; shop staff etc need not and cannot sell; waitresses cannot and need not wait; doctors are doing far less; even the police have less to do (allowing them to cruise about like the militia in The Handmaid’s Tale), now that the drinking-holes are shut, householders sit at home (making burglary almost impossible) and everywhere else, almost, is closed, making bank or other robberies impossible.

If you add in the “self-employed” (real or nominal), who are also being covered up to a point, then the true figure on paid leave is probably somewhere around 9-10 million, about a third of the workforce as it was before this all happened.

Then you have to add in those many millions now “working from home”, many of whom have only a fraction of the work to do that they would have had before. They are on at least semi-holiday.

I do not know how many people are working more or less as before “Coronavirus”, but probably only about a third of the pre-virus workforce.

As others have noted, it is obviously the case that people working (a bit) from home, getting full pay and possibly high pay, who have large houses, pleasant gardens, maybe even swimming pools and tennis courts, are having a rather pleasant time, so long as their Waitrose or Ocado delivery of food and Chardonnay is made when required.

Those living in, say, small rented hovels, or rented council flats in large crowded cities, perhaps with small children, and so effectively imprisoned by this Government (supported by the useless and now Jewish-Zionist-controlled “Labour” Opposition), are in less pleasant circumstances.

However, many at least do not have to work in low-paid and boring jobs, because “furloughed”; even those who are unemployed are better-off than pre-Coronavirus, because the DWP is overwhelmed by new applications for unemployment and other benefits, has fewer staff available and has suspended almost all of its now-customary bullying and harrying activities.

In the circumstances, it is hardly a surprise that many want the “lockdown” to continue. That is even more so now that the more officious aspects of “lockdown” (eg the toytown police lecturing people doing nothing wrong, moving them on etc) are being relaxed as the public increasingly ignore the restrictions anyway. Soon, some more shops and beer gardens etc will re-open. There is little appetite for Britain’s typically crowded, unpleasant, expensive commute to a job that, for many, pays not too well anyway.

The bill, however, will be presented in due course…

Tweets seen

I would not usually repost anything by “Prison Planet” Watson, who is politically a complete waste of space, as well as a craven doormat for the Jewish lobby, but this (below) is worth seeing:

People are so funny, but so irritatingly thick! Look (below) at tweeter @mccarthylarry, who feels no (economic) pain. No, not yet. “Furlough” monies are being doled out, businesses propped up. Wait until companies start making millions redundant, wait until every day brings the fall of a hundred (including “iconic”) companies…

I said the same as Lord Sumption, before he did. People paid little attention to me. True, I was never on the Supreme Court. Having said that, Lord Sumption was on the Supreme Court bench, and until now he too has been ignored, and almost as much as me, Peter Hitchens and others who saw through the “virus” scare-panic.

Meanwhile, the economy is sliding fast

Britain’s manufacturers are poised to make tens of thousands of workers redundant after a worse-than-expected slump in orders, prompted by the pandemic that has left many firms struggling to survive.

A survey by the manufacturers’ lobby group, Make UK, found that 25% of companies are already drawing up plans to cut jobs in the next six months. A further 45% say they are considering redundancies.

Only 30% said they expect to emerge from the coronavirus pandemic with all their staff on the payroll.” [The Guardian]

I wonder whether the msm talking head Sunday TV shows (Marr, Peston etc, if Peston has not yet been sacked) will talk much about the plainly sliding UK economy, or will it all be “lockdown”, Cummings, “second wave” (which may never come) and schools? The British talk about schools and education so much that you would think that schools and education were really rather good in the UK. Sadly, not so.

I have to agree.

“Protests” in USA

What is possible? Is anything possible?

I was watching the TV news showing the launch of the Elon Musk rocket. Musk is an interesting (though not necessarily “nice”) character.

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

What I saw on the TV led to musings about what is or is not possible in this world. Peter Hitchens was tweeting a day or two ago about an obscure story by E.M. Forster, The Machine Stops

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

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-52821993

That story was written in 1908 (repub. 1928) and seems to prefigure the Internet, email, Skype, and the atomic bomb, not to mention “pandemic”, “lockdown” and “social distancing”!

The story has been dramatized a few times, as here (below) for radio:

It is a truism that fiction often foretells fact in the sense of inventions, events etc. There are many examples. Jules Verne is often mentioned in this context: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jules_Verne

My own theory is that anything that the human mind can imagine can become physical or material reality. That is not to say that the later reality exactly matches the earlier thought, essay, drawing, or story.

Leonardo da Vinci suggested that there could be mechanical flying machines. He even made some detailed drawings. In reality, his machines could not have flown. What is important is not Leonardo’s drawings as “blueprints” but the fact that he had such ideas at all. His “planes”, “helicopters” and “parachutes” were “defective” in terms of 20thC or 21stC engineering viability, but what matters is that he had such ideas in the first place! And that is why Leonardo was a genius…

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci#Engineering_and_inventions

The human mind is probably only at the very start of its evolution, in big-picture terms. If I think now, for example, that in the future human beings will be able to fly without machines, or kill by a look, or make plants grow by the power of thought, that is mere fancy or speculation today, but may be everyday reality at some point in the future. Why? Because I have thought it.

Of course, had he not the money to make real his ideas, Elon Musk would probably be written off as a crank, as were others in their day, such as Galileo, who thought the Earth spherical when almost the entire educational, “scientific” and political establishment (under the Church) and all of the population, pretty much, believed the opposite, the the Earth was flat.

Christopher Cockerell was such a “crank”

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

The Wright brothers, too:

and many others.

Germany 1945

A very interesting film (no audio) in colour, about Germany in 1945, after the defeat and fall of the Reich.

For me, the most interesting thing to see is the devastated state of some (most) of the German cities after the Allied bombing and Soviet bombardments. What a contrast to today! In fact, even by 1960, Germany was already rebuilding fast, most obviously in the Bundesrepublik (West Germany), but also in the DDR (East Germany).

Throughout history, civilizations have been destroyed, rebuilt, renewed, and in some cases vanished forever, even without leaving external ruins (one example is that of Sparta).

Thoughts such as these impelled me to blog on such themes last year:

The toytown police state gets tough

Trafalgar Square

Several hundred blacks, half-castes and a few white “cucks” (to use the Americanism) are at time of writing in Trafalgar Square, in support of the black rioters and looters in the USA.

This pathetic demonstration (about 1 in every 20,000 of the London population, or 1 in about 100,000+ of the UK population is so ridiculous that one can only shake one’s head. On Twitter, it’s big…

Looking at tweets, there could be as many as 1,000 in Trafalgar Square, so make that 1 out of every 10,000 in the London area…

Once again, the disconnect between reality and Twitter, especially now that the screeching Jewish lobby has had most of the more thoughtful and interesting tweeters expelled. Well, what goes around comes around, as the Americans say…

Below, a couple of tweets about Naomi Campbell and the latest in the “Prince” Andrew and Jews scandal. So the Jews bribed a black woman to ensnare white girls? Wait a minute! That’s just like “Nazi” propaganda! Surely that cannot be true? Oh no, wait…

My thoughts about the above opinion poll tweets: people are not judging on policy, because you could hardly put a razorblade between the “two main parties”, both of which (now that Corbyn has gone and the Jew-Zionist lobby is back in control) are under the same (((control))).

The voters are judging this Government of idiots on character grounds, really.

You cannot imagine a careerist like Keir Starmer getting numerous stray women pregnant, bunging some of them public money as well, in the manner of Boris-idiot. Likewise, I doubt that Starmer would drive hundreds of miles in contravention of his own semi-dictatorial “rules”, or drive through an area of the country replete with accident black-spots “in order to test his eyesight”! Neither would he tolerate an “adviser” who did that.

Not that I take the Cummings matter or petty scandal very seriously, because the “rules” are nonsensical anyway…but the public seem to take his breach and perceived hypocrisy very seriously indeed.

The point is, though, that without Cummings and his crew, Boris-idiot would have no policies at all, really. His own “ideas” are those of a boy of 15 (at best)— bridges across the Irish Sea, artificial islands with enormous airports on them, magic economic development plans that exist only in the clouds…

I cannot see Keir Starmer and “Labour” enthusing anyone, but Boris-idiot’s honeymoon period is already well and truly over. After the end of “lockdown”, and more seriously, “furlough” payments and business loans, we shall see where the economy is. In a pretty bad state, I am guessing. In a hole, quite possibly.

In such a situation, the people might be ready for a new direction…maybe some form of social national ideology will be able to capture the hearts and minds…

For once, Trump seems to be doing a few things right: attacking the nasty “antifa” idiots, and threatening Twitter, Facebook etc with accountability re. people denied access to their platforms.

So having ruined the economy, the idea is to blame “the virus” (not the “lockdown” and shutdown) and then to launch a massive “make-work” project, probably at minimum wage.

Late entry…

Black rioters and looters —called “protesters” in the (((msm)))— attack and rob white people wherever they can find them. Americans call this a “chimp-out”…

https://www.rt.com/usa/490346-santa-monica-la-looting/

I used to own a copy of Gorky’s book (selected essays etc), The City of the Yellow Devil, about his visit to New York and other places in the USA. He was not entirely wrong. Here we see a society, a culture, which has fallen into gross materialism and which has all but forgotten its mainly white Northern European roots. Those at the bottom are excluded from most of the material benefits of the society and economy and, given a chance, they (mainly the or some of the blacks) seize what they can, unless stopped.

Below, a tweeter attacks the looters. Understandable, but this situation shows multiple flaws in the society as a whole, as well as the criminality of the looters.

America may be faced before very long with a choice between a kind of dictatorship and a kind of diffuse civil war and chaos. If so, let us hope that the values of white Northern European culture prevail in the end.

Cummings etc

I have blogged in the past about Dominic 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/

For me, this is not someone who should have any power or influence at all. Sick in body and soul. The same or similar applies to his puppet, Boris-idiot.

Having said that, I have no interest in whether he drove North 250 miles in breach of the “lockdown” nonsense. There should never have been implemented such wide-ranging restrictions.

Now, while the msm obsess about Cummings, attention is on him, and not on the fact that the UK economy is actually collapsing behind the smokescreen put up by “lockdown” and its”furlough” payments (which buy off most popular protest, and will do so until furlough payments end).

So far, with (the surviving) pubs possibly re-opening in July and people able to walk on beaches, in parks, in National Parks etc, there is a semi-holiday feeling. Most people who would otherwise be scrabbling for fairly pitiful Universal Credit money are being paid 80%, in some cases 100% of their previous pay (some are actually better off by reason of not having to pay out for much transport, clothing etc).

However, the iceman cometh. The Autumn and Winter will see a tsunami of company failures (my description, some time ago, but now being echoed, using the same term, by leading businessmen). Unemployment will skyrocket. Then will be the time when social nationalism can get off the ground for the first time since 1939.

Boris-idiot

This must be the first and possibly last time I have agreed with something tweeted by “antifa” cheerleader Mike Stuchbery:

Of course, Stuchbery is talking, I presume, mainly abot the “alt-Right” wastes of space, the like of “Prison Planet” Watson etc.

Some tweets seen

Time for today’s “dim SNP tweet of the day”, this time courtesy of tweeter “@amaginnit”

I agree with Hitchens. What until relatively recently were “normal humans” in England have all but disappeared. The numbers taper off as the age drops below about 50.

Anyone younger than 40, so born around 1980, has been brought up and “educated” in a milieu of Jew finance-capitalism, “holocaust” propaganda disguised as school “history”, “multiculturalism” (as something supposedly good), the idea that the State should probably not help people (except fake “refugees”) very much (via social security, social housing etc), but that citizens should or even must obey, not only the exact letter of the law, not even its spirit (however thought of) but even the mere wishes or demands of (increasingly mediocre or even clownish) politicians.

One only has to look at what now is considered “comedy”…or the willingness (indeed eagerness) of many to denounce and/or “report” others (to police, to those running Twitter or other online fora, to employers) for unwillingness to censor themselves and/or comply with every politically-correct demand of the State or the Jew lobby. In fact, the police are among the most contaminated in this regard.

There are exceptions, a relative few of the under-40s, indeed under-25s, who are not, or not so much, brainwashed. It is a minority though, a small minority from what I can gather.

Answer: “They” (((they))) have killed it, pretty much, aided by the toytown police acting as a poundland KGB.

A few comments from expert specialist scientists about “COVID-19” and the “lockdown nonsense

In fact, at this point I am more interested in what happens next, and particularly what will be happening in 3, 6, or 9 months in society, re. the economy, and in politics, than in arguing about or hearing debate about what Coronavirus is, what causes it to spread, and whether the peak happened before “lockdown” (which seems very likely) or later.

Coronavirus, the scare of the century?

Private hospitals are empty and up to 40,000 NHS beds lie unused amid mounting fury over the handling of non coronavirus treatment as thousands of operations are cancelled and cancers go undetected.

Figures suggest that up to four times the number of beds are free than normal for this time of year after a huge slowdown in non Covid-19 admissions as health bosses aim their focus at the pandemic response.

Hospitals have cancelled ‘thousands’ of their non-urgent surgeries – like hip and knee operations and IVF treatment – to free up space for infected patients, and operating theatres, equipped with oxygen supplies, have been turned into coronavirus wards.

Nightingale hospitals, built for the expected surge in coronavirus victims, are also largely empty, and private hospitals taken over by the NHS at a cost of hundreds of millions of pounds are also barely being used.” [Daily Mail]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8249241/Nearly-40-000-hospital-beds-lie-operations-treatments-cancelled.html

Medics say up to 2,700 cancers are being missed every week as the numbers being referred by doctors for urgent hospital appointments or checks had dropped by 75 per cent.  Professor Karol Sikora, a cancer specialist, has warned that the impact of the coronavirus outbreak could result in 50,000 cancer deaths. 

Meanwhile NHS staff have been accused of making a ‘mockery’ of the health service as they faced a barrage of criticism for posting ‘tone deaf’ and ‘disrespectful’ videos of dance routines on coronavirus wards while seriously ill patients have their medical treatment delayed.” [Daily Mail]NHS staff at the Tavistock Day Case Theatre in West Devon were forced to apologise after they filmed themselves performing a traditional Maori chant

[above: “NHS staff at the Tavistock Day Case Theatre in West Devon were forced to apologise after they filmed themselves performing a traditional Maori chant“—Daily Mail]

“Clap for the NHS”? Nein danke. The NHS is a very good thing, in principle, but the fact is that maladministration is a major problem, as well as underfunding. I have no time for virtue-signalling, nor for de facto enforced “community-ism”.

NIGHTINGALES COULD BE RE-PURPOSED

It emerged today that NHS Nightingale hospitals could be ‘re-purposed’ to treat non-coronavirus patients to clear a mounting backlog of cancelled operations and other treatments.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace yesterday said empty beds at the seven Nightingales around the country may be used for cases including cancer sufferers or ‘stepdown’ patients on the road to recovery.

It came as the Nightingales remain largely empty despite having the capacity for up to 11,000 patients.  

The first of the seven major sites in England to open at the ExCel Centre in East London has so far treated just 41 patients despite already having a capacity of 500.

And the transfer of more than 30 patients to the hospital which opened on April 3 was allegedly ‘cancelled due to staffing shortages’, according to NHS documents.

Of the 41 patients treated in London, four have died, seven have been discharged to a less critical level of care and the other 30 are still having treatment there. 

There have since been three more Nightingales open – in Birmingham on April 16, in Manchester the following day and in Harrogate in North Yorkshire on Tuesday. 

The NHS has not yet provided data on how many people have been treated by any of these three, although the figure is believed to be dozens at best. This means the total number of patients treated at the four sites could be under 100.” [Daily Mail]

So, after all the hullabaloo around the huge instant “Nightingale” hospitals, at least one (on Tyneside) never opened for patients at all, and the others outside London have had few if any patients. The London one, capacity 500, which was supposed to be treating “thousands” of critically-ill patients has in fact received only 41!

Of those 41, 7 have been discharged, 30 are still there, and 4 have died. So, with known infection rates in London falling quite fast now, it looks as though the London Nightingale will soon be redundant unless repurposed, but it is a “hospital” good for only one thing— keeping patients alive who need ventilation or oxygen. It has no operating theatres or other usual hospital facilities, so it looks as if Ben Wallace is talking out of his ****.

Sweden, Britain, washing hands and other questions

It has been obvious to the non-brainwashed since the beginning of the Coronavirus situation that the only known way to stop its spread is widespread washing of hands, thoroughly, with soap and water. As I blogged almost two months ago, the survey of 2015, showing the levels of personal hygiene across Europe, exposed the fact that Italy, Spain and France were the least hygienic, the very countries where the pro rata infection rates have been highest.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8248719/Swedens-coronavirus-cases-grow-slowly-Britains-despite-lack-lockdown.html

Likewise, the only other really useful measures to help stop the infection on a mass basis are closure of or avoidance of crowded, hot, places where many excited people gather: popular concerts and dances, nightclubs, underground and other trains. Preventing people from walking, sunbathing, sitting on beaches or park benches are useless wastes of time.

Interesting news…

Is Coronavirus sparing white Northern Europeans?

It seems a strange idea at first blush. After all, we are brought up to believe that diseases generally attack people on an equal-opportunity basis. Whites, blacks, whatever. However, that is, like much of what people are told to believe, not actually true.

It is well known that some diseases attack, or conditions affect, only blacks: sickle-cell anaemia is one (showing that blacks do not belong in Northern climes). Likewise, though NHS and other propaganda concealed it or tried to conceal it, HIV/AIDS was much more easily contracted by blacks, half-caste blacks etc than by Europeans, especially those from North-West Europe or with family origins there.

Now we see Coronavirus affecting, in the UK for example, people of all racial origins, yes, but so called BAME people (including Jews) far worse than those of what might be called “Aryan” or more accurately “post-Aryan” origins.

Age is obviously the most important demographic factor in Coronavirus infection, symptomatics and mortality, but after that the racial aspect is obviously significant, though the importance is blurred by social factors such as modes of life, ways of life and living, housing etc.

I was struck by the Boris Johnson case. Here you have someone aged 55, of not only European but also Turkish and Jewish origins. He gets the virus and, it seems, was lucky not to die from it. His fiancee, Carrie Symonds, apparently European, and only 32 years old, showed symptoms and tested positive but suffered no more than slight discomfort before swiftly recovering. Makes you think…

Street impressions

I had to go out in late afternoon (Friday afternoon) on an errand even the new UK bully police would certify as “essential”, so was able to observe how many people were out and about in my corner of Southern England. In fact, quite a few.

I remember when the “lockdown” nonsense started, a few weeks ago (though it seems far longer). The roads were empty. Now, today, I should say that, though the traffic has not built up to the Friday or any weekday norm, there was rather a lot of traffic around. Private cars as well as delivery vehicles. Quite a few people on bicycles, too.

A police car saw me as I passed in the opposite direction. The police car had cars ahead of and behind it. It slowed. I wondered whether the driver wanted to check me out, but was unable to do so because of the road situation. In fact, he would have been wasting his time. My car has valid MOT, is properly registered, as well as fully insured and so on; my UK licence is up to date and without “points”. In short, and in those senses only, I am “kosher”!

As I blogged yesterday, there is a “yes, repeat no” thing going on. No-one in the UK is rioting about this nonsense of the whole population being placed under conditional house arrest; no-one is even protesting loudly in the streets. Yet, with the weather warm, people are just taking their chances of being hassled by the toytown police, in the knowledge that the relatively few police around cannot, despite being more in evidence than pre-Coronavirus, arrest, ticket, or even talk to every motorist, every walking couple, every sunbathing young lady…

It reminds me of what happened in 1989. In 1988, I crossed the “East German” (DDR) border by car from Poland, then the next day into the then West Germany (Bundesrepublik). The border was rather fearsome in a quiet way, despite the fact that I crossed at a little-used and rural crossing-point in the south of the DDR.

Yet, only a year later, triggered by an announcement from a government minister (seemingly unintended), thousands of DDR citizens built up at the Berlin Wall and just started to cross. The Grenzpolizei (border police, aka Grepos) did not know what to do…so did nothing. One illegal crosser— shoot him; a thousand? Ten thousand. Impossible.

That, in minor key, is the situation the UK police are in now. They can throw their weight around when only a small number of (harmless, law-abiding English) people are involved, but when a thousand or a million people decide that they have had enough of the misconceived (and in any case pointless) “lockdown” petty tyranny, the police are powerless to stop those people from doing things such as driving around, visiting beaches, walking in parks or even —what wickedness!— sunbathing…

Musical interlude

A few tweets

Many people evidently have taken the “lockdown” at face value. This was an attempt by the global self-styled “elite” power club to see how far they can go in turning notionally “free” people into obedient, compliant, and above all unaware and bamboozled, serfs, clapping their own house arrest, in effect. Look at Cressida Dick, Metropolitan Police Commissioner and Common Purpose “alumna”, right there in the forefront. I was thinking that this was the result of stupidity [cf. the view of @ClarkeMicah/Peter Hitchens] but I veer now to conspiracy.

The plebs are easily manipulated…

A woman says she was “named and shamed” by neighbours after she fell asleep and missed the weekly clap for carers tribute to NHS staff and key workers.

The mother said had been tired after “a rough night” with her son, and inadvertently failed to take part in the event despite having done so in previous weeks.” [Sky News]

The woman went on to write: “I just feel like I’m a total outcast on my previously friendly street now even though only one person posted it and only two others agreed

“It’s really disturbing how quickly people are ready to turn on each other and ‘report’ each other.”” [Sky News]

What many of the unthinking plebs would love would be a kind of “Nuremberg Trial” or kangaroo court every month (or week), with dissidents suitably “named and shamed” and then put in virtual or actual stocks so that the mob can throw things at anyone not going along with the official line.

Some “dissident” tweets

Again, as Hitchens says, or implies, the little penpushers, the toytown police and poundland KGB are finding new ways to fill their time, new “rules” to “enforce”.

Like most barristers (in my case, “ex”, since late 2016) who have done criminal trials, I am thoroughly in favour of juries, not because they are educated, intelligent, logical, or have any knowledge of the law beyond what the judge chooses to share with them (direct them as to), for mostly those qualities do not apply. No, the value of the jury is in the “sense of justice” within that small conclave. That may go against “the law” as written, against the evidence in some cases. It is a mystery, a mystery which worries the neat and little minds of some.

I can think of a few cases from my pupillage and later my own Bar experience (though I stopped doing most criminal work after a year or two, around 1995); other cases I have in mind were far more serious trials where the State was obviously thought, by the jury, to have gone “too far”.

One example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyprus_Seven_Trial

The problem that we now have is that juries are so brainwashed by State and/or politically-correct propaganda that the accused might often actually be better off being tried by a “Diplock Court” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diplock_court].

Coronavirus

The reporters of the Independent call the UK government response to the crisis “sluggish” and “complacent”, the very two words I used in my blog a couple of days ago. Maybe my blog is more widely read than I had, modestly, thought…

On the other hand, “sluggish” and “complacent” are the words or at least the attitudes that have marked Boris Johnson, Boris-idiot, for a long long time. They have also marked the previous two “Conservative” governments, particularly that of the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita (PM) and George Osborne (Chancellor) during 2010-15.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/coronavirus-news-live-uk-cases-trump-us-travel-ban-europe-pandemic-delay-phase-a9396186.html

The UK is shielding its economy from the virus “but not yet its people”, according to The New York Times.”” [The Independent]

Exactly. In the UK, the government, especially this government, does not really care about the British people. That attitude is given out from the top of this government, from Boris-idiot and his immediate advisers.

It comes after experts have roundly condemned the government’s handling of the epidemic. Richard Horton, the editor of the Lancet, a peer-reviewed medical journal, is among those who have questioned its approach. In a tweet on Tuesday, he said: “The UK government—Matt Hancock and Boris Johnson—claim they are following the science. But that is not true.” [The Independent]

The Government refuses, so far, to close State schools. I suppose that that is because most mothers now are working outside the home. This society is very fragile. It cannot sustain shocks because everything is highly-geared. Close schools and suddenly millions of women would have to stop working outside the home for the duration. The economy (the benefits of which go mostly to 5% of the population) would suffer. This government has, as the New York Times has printed, chosen money over people (again).

The courts need a slap

An elderly British man is cheated out of thousands of pounds by a Muslim criminal who also taunted him and his grand-daughter. The w** is caught, but given a suspended sentence! https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/callous-crook-who-fleeced-vulnerable-21678836 and I notice that the name of the judge (at Inner London Crown Court) is not reported, no doubt to save him or her from the justifiable anger of the people. Was he or she also a Muslim, or just a weak, pseudo-liberalistic English idiot?

When Britain has a real government, it will have to move swiftly to deport, both on the individual level and on the mass scale. Other measures will also have to be taken, to purge society.

Compare the above weakness with the case here: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/mum-jailed-five-years-after-2167382, in which a woman in her thirties had an affair with her teenage (16+) stepson. Yes, it was a crime, despite the fact that they were unrelated (illegal because the boy was under 18), and it is hardly something to be encouraged, but her five year sentence seems to me to have been ludicrously harsh in any event, and certainly when contrasted with the first case noted, in which an 80-y-o British pensioner was cheated by an untermensch, the criminal getting only a short and suspended sentence.

No wonder that Dickens’ phrase, “the law is a ass, a idiot” is still quoted daily…

In fact, this man [see below], guilty of the trivial offence of trying to access a VIP area at Lord’s during a cricket match, was given a harsher sentence than that Pakistani fraudster who cheated the old man! https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/businessman-used-dead-mans-membership-21676258. 10 months suspended, whereas the Pakistani got 18 months suspended, but the English defendant also has to pay a very heavy fine and do 150 hours of slave labour! Good grief! England…country of “the holy money” and “holy cricket”…

Britain 2020

Here is the sort of individual held up to the people, especially the young, as a role-model: some ignorant “ho” who has sex in a restaurant loo with a fairly random person, the events then being publicized in the msm for the delectation of the masses… https://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/amy-childs-romped-restaurant-toilet-21678339

Britain needs a cultural purge. Badly.

Democracy? Britain does not have it. Should it be implemented?

Only the most fervent or blinkered supporter of the present system of government in the UK would call it “democracy”. An election every 2-5 years, in which only the votes of those in the most marginal constituencies really count. It is said that Labour would have won the 2017 General Election had it only garnered about 3,000 strategically-situated votes! Out of a population, eligible to vote, of about 45 MILLION (of which 32 million did vote). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_United_Kingdom_general_election#Full_results

The First Past The Post voting system is not particularly democratic anyway. When to that is added the manner of candidate selection, the “regulation” of parties introduced by Tony Blair via the Electoral Commission, and the way in which the boundaries are drawn, one sees that “democratic” is, to a large extent, a meaningless label.

c64bh5xw0aiwygy

That is before one even starts to consider the role played by the msm.

Bro4irbIcAIZKx2.jpg large

CSrYbsNU8AATLhJ

The wider question is whether a greater degree of “democracy” is even desirable.

I have blogged previously about “democracy”: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/01/15/has-parliamentary-democracy-as-we-have-known-it-until-now-had-its-day-in-the-uk/

In the trite phrase, democracy “is a movable feast”. It means or can mean almost all things to all men.

As I understand the basics of the Threefold Social Order proposed by that great thinker, Rudolf Steiner, democracy in terms of votes and majorities should apply only to those things where all citizens are equal or equally affected. That therefore excludes anything directly of a spiritual nature: freedom of religion and belief. Just one example. Another? The actual running of economic enterprises. Sometimes you see ignorant people (whom those even more ignorant take to be wise), such as American film-maker Michael Moore, or the now-deceased Labour Party MP, Tony Benn, propose that factories or companies should be run on the ground by committees or even mass assemblies of workers. Anarcho-syndicalism territory. In reality, business requires specialized knowledge and expertise. To submit that to a popular vote is a nonsense and unworkable, as the experience of most if not all “workers’ collectives” has shown.

This is too big a subject to cover in a brief blog, but is worth studying:

https://anthropopper.wordpress.com/2017/01/20/the-threefold-social-order-has-it-been-forgotten/

More Coronavirus thoughts

We are told that the “elderly” (whether with virus or not) will be turfed out of intensive care units in favour of younger people who have a greater chance of survival. The NHS people say that they “are not going to make value judgments” in allotting space or care, but of course they are making a value judgment, at least in effect, i.e. that those younger, fitter patients with a greater chance of survival are inherently more worth saving than those who, older, maybe sicker, have a lesser chance of survival.

The fervent Twitter supporters for whom medical people can do no wrong even say openly that the young are, ipso facto, more worth saving than the old(er).

Really? A young criminal person, possibly non-Brit (looking at the demographics as the Brits get outbred by the blacks and browns), possibly a useless predator or parasite, is worth more than an older person with fewer years ahead of him or her (perhaps; not necessarily) but who is, perhaps, in every way more valuable to society? I demur.

I think that people should be treated on the basis of need, not on the basis of who is younger or easier to treat.

First, some rare good news about the planet and environment:

Newspapers

Saw circulation figures for last year. The Sun “newspaper” only sells about 1.3M copies now (if that— the 1.3M is a circulation figure). In living memory, indeed recent memory (1990s) it was around 3M. The Guardian circulation is (or was, a year ago) 134,000. In other words, only about 1 person out of 500 in the UK read the Guardian (in print) in 2019. Now? Maybe the 134,000 is around 120,000. Something like that.

Not one newspaper increased its circulation in 2019 over 2018. Some recorded falls as great as 18%. The Daily Telegraph circulation fell by 10%.

Of course, that does not take into account online readership, but I think that the Internet is culling newspapers in print, as Rupert Murdoch predicted years ago. Also, trust has been lost. Newspapers like the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror are using recent graduates in journalism, paying them peanuts for their often semi-literate drivel, and trying to push political agendas such as that promoted by the Jewish lobby. People are voting with their feet.

Sabisky

I speculated yesterday that maybe Sabisky was a reject from either MI5 or SIS and that that was the reason why so few details about him seem to be in the public domain. His university (which one? Was there one?); his marital status (he is said to have 4 children, despite only being 27 or 28 himself; who is his wife or “partner”?); where was he born, brought up etc? None of the msm has said anything about any of that, neither has his work history (if any) come to light. Sabisky is described in some newspaper reports as “an academic” but no specifics have been published. Was he a lecturer somewhere? We do not know.

In relation to the above, I see that there is a kefuffle about Sabisky never having been vetted. Well, maybe he was, even if a few years ago, if he was at one time a candidate member of SIS or MI5 on some kind of probation. It’s just a line of speculation, or what 1960s people would call a “riff”, but it would seem to fit the known facts, which include the fact that Sabisky was recruited by Dominic Cummings, whose own background (especially his time in Russia) is murky in parts.

Even the New York Times has taken Sabisky’s supposed higher degree (in Education) on trust from some (Sabisky’s own?) online biography: https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2020/02/17/world/europe/ap-eu-britain-government-adviser.html

Minor news from the ISIS barbarity

An aspirant “ISIS” barbarian (English but a convert to Islam) has pleaded guilty to, in effect, preparing to blow up St. Paul’s Cathedral.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/breaking-isis-supporter-36-guilty-21546203

She follows the trend of “Islamist” terrorists or would-be terrorists (both Muslims by birth and converts) in knowing next to nothing of her preferred religion. She apparently became a Muslim after her Muslim neighbours were “kind” to her.

It is clear even from the newspaper report that this person is, if not actually mentally unwell, then certainly “disturbed”. Psychiatric reports on her are being prepared.

The Mirror report gives few details of her life, but one can surmise that she is probably also of low IQ etc. Again, par for the course, looking at earlier cases, both in the UK and elsewhere.

Under other circumstances, she might have become (indeed, perhaps also was) a “refugees welcome” dimwit, an “antifa” idiot, and/or even a supporter of Jew-controlled anti-“hate” bodies such as “Hope not Hate” or even the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”. Stranger things have been known.

The accused was obviously easy meat for MI5 (or Anti-Terrorism Command police) entrapment (using the word in a lay, non-legal, sense). The FBI has been doing all that for decades in the USA.

A number of years ago, a similar person, an Irish autistic, converted to Islam, adhered to the then-feared ISIS barbarians, and tried to blow up the new shopping centre in central Exeter (which was not yet fully built when I still practised as a barrister there). The “Irish Muslim” failed, succeeding only in exploding a device in a loo into which he had locked himself. It detonated while he was unable to get out. Quite funny in a sense, but not for him. I believe that his injuries were grave. He only had himself to blame.

I suppose the lesson is that today’s “dedicated” terrorist, willing to kill and be killed, need not be, and in fact rarely is, any kind of deep thinker, let alone (if Muslim) an Islamic scholar. The warning flags are petty and non-political offences such as minor theft, minor drugs offences etc, isolation from general society, mental problems.

The dedicated terrorists of the past usually had a more or less thought-out ideology, some group discipline, a strategy. The list is long. In my mind would be the Russian and other anti-Romanov terrorists of the 19th and early 20th centuries (Bolsheviks, Narodnaya Volya, anarchists etc), the Jew terrorists of the period of British-Mandate Palestine (1918-1948),

the so-called “French Resistance” and similar groups elsewhere in WW2 occupied Western Europe, the Soviet-led partisans of Russia, Belorussia, Ukraine and Eastern Europe generally, EOKA in British-ruled Cyprus, the insurgents in British-ruled Malaya, the Irish Republican Army in Northern (and Southern) Ireland,

not forgetting the various “Loyalist” groups. As Oscar Wilde said, “the Ulster Unionist, always ready to foment a loyal rebellion”. Brilliant.

My above list is scarcely exhaustive. We could add the Basque terrorists of ETA (a particularly formidable group), the Palestinian or pro-Palestinian groups (leaving aside arguable justifications…) and many others. Algerian nationalists and the OAS were of particular importance in the early 1960s.

There were, in the 1970s, 1980s, less disciplined groups of terrorists and/or ones who verged on the ordinarily criminal: in Italy, the Red Brigades, Germany, the Rote Armee Fraktion or RAF, commonly known as the Baader-Meinhoff Gang,  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Army_Faction and, in the UK, the pointless but committed and, in some cases, well-educated (if rather superficially) Angry Brigade: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Angry_Brigade

https://www.theguardian.com/theobserver/2002/feb/03/features.magazine27

One cannot really compare even the least organized of the major terror or “urban guerrilla groups (even such as the “Carlos” —Ilyich Ramirez Sanchez— group) with today’s “Islamist” and other terrorists. Those others had, as already mentioned, ideologies, commitment, organization (up to a point), general aims and strategies, technical capabilities (look at the IRA’s bomb-making expertise, for example), and, often, help from State actors such as the GRU, Stasi etc.

Looking at the present wave of individual or small-group terrorists (often infiltrated or set-up by provocateurs) one can see that the damage that they do in society is outweighed, in the collective mind of the State, by the PR assistance they give to the State, their acts suggesting that the organs of the State need more power, more legal help, more money, more staff etc.

Well done, Aaalst!

Now for bringing back the proper and original version of the Oberammergau Passion Play!

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oberammergau_Passion_Play#Antisemitism

The Jews (the Israel/Zionist lobby) pressured the local people via the Vatican to change the Play. One example is Jesus Christ praying in Hebrew (most scholars believe that His usual spoken language was Aramaic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Language_of_Jesus, though it is true that He may have used spoken Hebrew too for sacramental purposes).

Most importantly, the Play as now performed has had removed the original Biblical line, “Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children” [from Matthew 27:25)(King James version; the version used in Germany is not identical but has the same meaning]; “the people” there meaning “the Jews”.
