Britain 2022

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11333825/Woman-took-photo-teen-groped-bus-station-case-shelved-lack-evidence.html

Read it. Remarkable even by the standards of Britain’s increasingly useless police forces.

A woman who took a picture of a teenager who groped her at a bus station was staggered to be told by police that the case would be shelved – due to a lack of evidence.

The force reopened the investigation only after the 25-year-old victim passed on her photographs of the tagged groper to her local newspaper.

When a journalist contacted Derbyshire Police, officers issued a public appeal and within days, Daniel Oakes had been arrested.”

[Daily Mail]

Note that the force involved was that of Derbyshire, whose extremely poor police spent inordinate amounts of time persecuting and eventually prosecuting the satirist and singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz at the behest of the malicious Jew-Zionist cabal, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”].

The same force was one of the worst during the “Covid” “panicdemic” as well, pointlessly bullying members of the public in various ways.

Derbyshire Police also has a very poor record in relation to detecting real crime. Not so surprising when you read the Daily Mail report above.

The readers’ comments are interesting. Here’s one;

Big Mac n Cheese, Derby, United Kingdom, 10 minutes ago

This is my local police farce. It seems the police are little more than window dressing these days. Not particularly interested in preventing or solving crime. Like with hospitals, surgery’s, schools, councils ect, standards have declined to a level that is totally unacceptable.”

[Daily Mail].

Another Daily Mail reader comments:

AndyJames445, London, United Kingdom, 1 hour ago

Police are useless as are the authorities. We are now in unprecedented times where everything in our society is breaking down and nothing works.”

[Daily Mail]

As those readers comment, it is not just the police— standards have been declining across the board: police, NHS, councils, central government, exams, schools, universities, you name it. Parliament too. I mean, look at the stupid woman posing as Prime Minister (Liz Truss), and her so-called “Deputy Prime Minister”, and Health Secretary (Therese Coffey). Look at the near-brawl in the House of Commons yesterday. And so on.

Inform, educate, entertain“, the original prescription of Lord Reith [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Reith,_1st_Baron_Reith].

What we now have is a multikulti agenda masquerading as “inform” (TV/radio news etc), a multikulti and Jew-Zionist agenda posing as “educate” (including huge amounts of “holocaust” farrago), and a vast amount of money spent on the “entertain” bit, most of which output is not entertaining in the slightest (and also serves that multikulti agenda, e.g. with blacks seen everywhere, even in period drama).

The Jew Shapps. Effectively an agent of Jew-Zionism and Israel. A former youth leader of the Zionist “B’nai B’rith” organization. A “dodgy” inhabitant of the Hertfordshire “Borshch Belt”, who sold get-rich-quick schemes in Parliament, using at least 3 aliases. Now posing as Home Secretary.

Another near-lunatic.

The UK could, under a real British government, call a halt to the demonization of Russia, restore both trading and cultural links with Russia, and distance the UK from NATO, or at least be more independent (as France is, with its force de frappe).

Britain would then be able to access Russian gas (via a new pipeline direct to the UK) at cheap or very cheap prices. Britain would see a whole new future open up for it.

More tweets

True, though Steve Hilton is himself a “three pound note”— useless. I blogged about him, about Dominic Cummings, and about Brendan Bracken, a few years ago:

The System relies on complete or near-complete “control”, which was one reason there was such a massive campaign against Corbyn, spearheaded by the Jew-Zionist element.

Liz Truss, by reason of her sheer lack of ability, threatens System “stability”. She will, therefore, be removed, to put in place a (superficially) better Prime Minister-figure.

Land, the ultimate reservoir of wealth.

Haven’t I seen that somewhere before?

I seem to recall seeing a piece in one of the newspaper magazines (in the days, long ago, when both they and their parent newspapers were designed for intelligent, reasonably-cultured British adults) about Hampstead Garden Suburb [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hampstead_Garden_Suburb], and about how the entire population of the UK (as it then was) could in theory be housed in a radius of 30 miles or so around London, at that density. Maybe 35 miles, now.

Not that I particularly favour the layout of Hampstead Garden Suburb (I knew a lady who lived there, about 30 years ago), but there are worse places to live in the world, or in the UK for that matter.

As Peter Oborne laid out in this recent piece;

and…there we have it:

The ignorant, talentless “ho”, devoid of any real education or culture, devoid of any understanding of the British people, has quit (after saying just yesterday that she was “not a quitter“). Well, no more a lie than anything else she, “Boris”-idiot, Theresa May, David Cameron-Levita-Schlumberger and others in the Westminster monkeyhouse have said over the past 12 years.

Ha ha. She will not even get the £115,000 a year all other recent Prime Minister retirees have received (though I have seen tweets to the contrary).

I thought that two months was the shortest time allowing an outgoing prime minister to get the cash. Is that 2 calendar months, or 8 weeks? I do not know.

So far she has “served” 6 weeks and 2 days, so I suppose she might still make at least 8 weeks, and so (?) breast the tape. She has “resigned” as of today, or so the news reports say. Does that mean her term ends as of now? How can she then get the cash?

Reading the reports, it looks as though the official dates will be massaged to allow her to get the cash.

They really do not know their (collective) **** from their elbow.

Naturally, in our rigged more or less binary electoral system, the people look to Labour now, but “Labour” is just another face of the System. Look at the System drones in the Shadow Cabinet— Yvette Cooper, Lisa Nandy, Rachel Reeves. All Labour Friends of Israel, none willing to commit to the Triple Lock on State Pensions, none willing to commit to raising State benefits in line with inflation.

We could be looking at a Labour government every bit as bad as the “Conservative” ones of recent years.

I should imagine that the Conservative Party will try to install someone who will sit as Prime Minister for the next year or two, in the hope that, over time, the opinion polls will swing at least somewhat back to a position whereby maybe half the Conservative seats will be saved. An election now means a near-wipeout for the Conservative Party.

Still, who knows what is really going on behind the scenes, in the hidden ruling circles?

That valete shows a stunning lack of understanding of her defaults, and also a lack of understanding of international affairs. Putin may “menace” the Jew Zelensky and his Kiev regime; he certainly does not “threaten the security of our whole continent”.

Indeed, Russia is struggling to keep a tenth of Ukraine under occupation. How then (even if he wanted to) could Putin threaten the security of Europe as a whole, or even the “near-abroad” of the Baltic States?

Just Stop Oil

Those idiots talk about “people freezing in their homes” but their solution to that is —wait for it— to restrict new sources of oil and gas! The educational system in the UK needs a radical overhaul, needs to teach young people how to reason…

Start kicking them. They cannot even stop you, because they have glued themselves to the road. Alternatively, reroute the traffic, and at the same time spray those bastards (male, female, old as well as young) with freezing water, continuing for hours, for days, until they either unglue themselves or beg to be arrested.

If they get away with these actions, they will escalate their sub-terrorism.

Liz Truss

When Liz Truss became Prime Minister, I predicted the following, in such terms: that I would be “surprised” if her term lasted as long as the end of 2022, and “astonished” if she lasted as long as Spring 2023. One gold tick for this blog…

No wonder that journalists, MPs, ministers of foreign governments etc read this blog.

At least Mr. Bale’s Twitter profile has elements of honesty (“Travelling the world (again) and talking bollocks. Fortunate to have been at Reuters, FT, News, Microsoft, CNN and CPI.”)

Quite…

This is not the “USA” (or “UK”, on a smaller scale). It is not even the Jew-Zionist element, not entirely. It is the NWO, the New World Order conspiracy, at work. The NWO wants to not only trammel and control Russia, but to destroy its proper future by enfolding it as another part of the Western jigsaw.

Ha ha. Still, good news that the Swedes are finally starting to wake up.

They are finally having to realize that multiculturalism does not work; it certainly cannot result in any sort of decent society.

This week, political journalist John Rentoul managed to tie with me. 7/10. Well done.

I did not know the answers to questions 3 and 10, and the answer to question 5 slipped my mind (well, after all, he is hardly Maurice Oldfield…).

On this day a year ago

A preliminary look at the upcoming Erdington by-election

The sitting MP for Birmingham Erdington, Jack Dromey, having died, there will be a by-election at some point, probably in March or April.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham_Erdington_(UK_Parliament_constituency)

I shall blog in detail later, when the candidates have been declared. For the moment, it is possible to sketch only outlines.

Birmingham Erdington is considered a safe Labour seat, though not quite rock-solid now. The last non-Labour candidate was elected in 1936 (Conservative Party).

The lowest Labour vote since 1983 was recorded in 2010 (41.8%). However, that vote increased to 45.6% in 2015, then 58% in 2017, before slipping back a little to 50.3% in 2019. Dromey was first elected in 2010.

As for the Conservative Party vote-share, its high-water mark was back in 1931 (68.1%). It was closest to success (since the pre-WW2 era) in 1983, when Labour, with 39.8%, narrowly beat the Conservative candidate (39.2%), a majority of only 231 votes.

During the Blair era, the Conservative vote slumped well below 30%, but has recovered since: 32.6 % in 2010, 30.8% in 2015, 38.4% in 2017, and 40.1% in 2019.

In 2019, Brexit Party put up a candidate who scored 4.1%. While one cannot say that that 4.1% would otherwise have voted Con, it is more likely than not, putting the Conservatives maybe within a couple of points of Labour. However, recent opinion polling has shown that Conservative Party support, nationwide, has been sliding.

The potential level for any social-national candidate is hard to gauge, but in view of the fact that there presently exists no credible social-national party in the UK, my assessment of the likelihood even of a saved deposit for any candidate of that type is low. The BNP achieved 5.1% and a saved deposit in 2010, and achieved that, moreover, despite the existence of both UKIP (2.4%) and National Front (0.6%) candidates. Had only the BNP stood, then it is possible that its vote might have totalled over 8%, and —who knows?— even over 10%. Still modest, of course.

UKIP, not social-national but somewhat (conservative-) nationalist, achieved a creditable third place on 17.4% of the votes cast in 2015.

This is not Liberal Democrat territory. The LibDems have lost their deposit in every election since 2010 (16.2%).

I imagine that the by-election will attract a host of minor and joke candidates.

In years past, there would been little point in blogging about a by-election such as this. However, this time it is worth speculating about, and then seeing the result. The interest lies in seeing whether former Labour voters’ apathy, and/or dislike of Keir Starmer and/or Labour generally (with its pro-mass immigration stance and “Covid” obsession) can result in a great upset.

Labour is sliding fast in the affections of the voters, but so is the Conservative Party, which talks big on immigration yet not only does nothing to stop it but is actually inviting millions of Hong Kong Chinese to live here, is inviting tens of thousands of Afghans to live here, and has done absolutely nothing to prevent the cross-Channel migration-invasion.

This looks like being a straight Conservative-Labour fight. I cannot see the LibDems mounting a successful third-party bid. At the moment, I should say that Labour are still favourites, but only just. I do not rule out an upset.

Labour Party in the Cold War

I am reading Against the Cold War; the nature and traditions of pro-Soviet sentiment in the British Labour Party 1945-89, by one Darren G. Lilleker.

A fairly interesting book-length study (a doctoral thesis), but I have already found flaws in the bit I have read so far, such as:

Lee, identified as Will Owen, was solely
interested in financial reward. According to
[Josef] Frolik he demanded free holidays and money
and in return passed information of the “highest importance.,… This description of Owen
seems somewhat dubious, Owen was not party to important information, and the fact that
he was acquitted from a treason charge on the 9th May 1970 substantiates these doubts
.”

Well, Owen was tried at the Bailey, true, but not on a charge of treason (in the strict legal sense). The charge was one of “communicating secrets” contrary to the Official Secrets Act.

Notes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Owen#Secrets_trial; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josef_Frol%C3%ADk.

A basic error like that is not one that I should expect to see in the thesis of a Ph.D. candidate, frankly. There are already noticed one or two similar errors. Also, one is acquitted of (or maybe on) a charge, not “from“. Also, it is claimed, in the thesis, that the MP John Stonehouse was engaging in homosexual behaviour (which laid him open to blackmail by Czech Intelligence, though his main motivation for spying was financial).

The money aspect, yes, but is the other true, or not? Wikipedia mentions nothing of it [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stonehouse]. There have been two books on Stonehouse published in the past year; neither (judging from reviews) mentions the “gay” allegations.

Still, I am continuing to read Lilleker’s thesis, which I am finding interesting, overall.

Addendum: the thesis was successful, and the candidate got his (2001) Ph.D. Twenty years on, that candidate is Professor Lilleker of Bournemouth University, no less: https://staffprofiles.bournemouth.ac.uk/display/dlilleker#overview; https://staffprofiles.bournemouth.ac.uk/display/dlilleker#affiliations.

As for the thesis, it was published as a book, apparently (in 2004): https://staffprofiles.bournemouth.ac.uk/display/dlilleker#publications. I see that used copies in hardback (I rarely buy paperbacks) are as little as £3 on Amazon. I may buy one.

Incidentally, I blogged briefly about Stonehouse last year, when the books about him came out: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/07/17/diary-blog-17-july-2021/.

Cummings, about whom I blogged a few times, is making himself look silly now. As to Boris-idiot, it is hard to think that he could be made to look sillier…(actually, thinking about it, the same could be said of Cummings).

I should like to believe that the British public would do better, but I do wonder…in the new multikulti “British” land, ignorance is bliss, quite often.

Were we in the USA, we might know a great deal about the composition of the jury, and also about why the jurors decided the matter thus, but since the passing of the Juries Act 1974 [as amended], most of that is not permitted: see https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1974/23/section/20D#:~:text=%5BF120DOffence%3A%20disclosing%20jury’s%20deliberations&text=(2)A%20person%20guilty%20of,a%20fine%20(or%20both).

My guess? Most of the jury was composed of a mixture of blacks, other non-Europeans, and persons of a generally Labour Party bent. There was no need for a majority direction from the trial judge, so either all jurors voted for acquittal, or most did and the few preferring conviction changed their minds and went along with that.

Of course, I saw through Boris Johnson long ago, about 20 years ago. Unfortunately, I am forced by Fate to be merely (at least so far) a private citizen-blogger. Frankly, and if I myself say it that shouldn’t, I would be a far better head of government than Boris Johnson. Admittedly, many people might echo my words, and with justice.

Kazakhstan

Flag of Kazakhstan
Land controlled by the Republic of Kazakhstan shown in dark green.

I was not intending to blog about the present upheaval in Kazakhstan. It is —tempus fugit!— now 24 years since I lived there (I was there for a year), and I have already blogged about some aspects of my own time there, en passant, several times. However, a few words…

Kazakhstan, when I went there, was all but unknown to the UK public. Even educated members of the Bar whom I knew asked “where exactly is that?” when I said that I would be living there.

Despite being the 9th-largest state in the world, more than 11x the size of the whole UK, Kazakhstan was almost invisible to most British people. That is less true today, though most people still know little about it.

At one time, from the 1920s to the early 1990s, Kazakhstan’s population was 20%-45% Russian, peaking at well over 40% in the 1970s. Even when I was there (1996-97), Russians were over 30% of the population, and probably more in the then capital and largest city, Almaty, where I lived.

By reason of Stalin’s mass deportations from other areas of the Soviet Union, there were numerous other ethnic groups in Kazakhstan up until the 1990s (they are still there but in far smaller numbers): Volga Germans, Jews, Ukrainians, Crimean Tartars, Turks and Koreans (former residents of Soviet areas bordering those countries) etc. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazakhstan#Demographics.

In the 1990s, Russians started to leave, as “Kazakhization” proceeded. Jews left for Israel. Germans left for Germany. Kazakhstan is now about 65%-70% Kazakh.

Russians were the backbone of Kazakhstan as a civilized and advanced country. The Kazakhs I myself met were (mostly) very pleasant, tolerant people, but badly-led and, after all, basically non-European. Before the late 19th Century, Kazakhs were still all nomadic. Most of them still were as late as the 1930s.

Russia gave the Kazakhs everything modern, from roads and rail, and medical services, and cities, to nuclear poison and labour camps…a mixed picture…

Kazakhstan was once called, informally —and dangerously—, Kazekstan, “zek” being a slang term for a prisoner.

The Russians, in the 19thC, established a fort at a place in the foothills of the Tien Shan mountains, a place they called Verny. There was founded a small town, later called Alma-Ata (“Father of Apples” in Kazakh). When I lived there, there were still a few small apple orchards in the hills within the city limits rapidly being developed into residential and office neighbourhoods.

Alma-Ata became (I have no idea why) “Almaty”, a name both Russians and Kazakhs found odd and somehow funny (they told me).

The few at the top after 1991 effectively stole everything, something that was obvious to me when I lived there. The “elected” dictator, Nazarbaev (resigned recently), was, even in 1996, said (by Fortune magazine) to be the 5th-wealthiest individual on Earth. The oil and gas and other riches under the ground went mainly to him and then to his clan, family, friends and contacts (and to Western oil, gas, and mining companies). Nazarbaev was the first Kazakh leader (even in Soviet times) who had no descent from Genghiz Khan; he was never fully accepted by many Kazakhs.

The Soviet government had tried, in the late 1980s, to install a non-Kazakh, a Russian, as leader. Riots killed hundreds.

I am sorry to see the bloodshed in Kazakhstan, but the country needs a new start.

Whatever happens (or is said to have happened) with “Omicron”, the “panicdemic” narrative will continue to be pushed. The endgame has nothing to do with public heath, and certainly nothing to do with any supposed huge “danger” to the public, or the world. It is all to do with the next stage in the conspiracy— the microchipping of effectively the entire population of the world.

Stray thought

Looking at the film (from 1974, though the music dates from 1959), no-one in that film could have imagined that the DDR/East Germany would pass into history only 15 years (officially 16) later. Even when I spent a couple of days in the DDR in 1988, the regime seemed to be in full control, though there was to me a strange feeling about the place (I was in the seemingly almost depopulated Southwest and Southeast), a feeling that —despite all the trappings of a state— this was a kind of facade. I suppose that the feeling might be summed up as “where are all the people?”…

We imagine that a set-up like the UK will go on almost forever, and certainly not disappear or be radically changed within a few years. I’m not so sure of that.

Only 51%?! I have always known that Conservative Party voters are largely woodentops (so are many Labour Party voters, of course), but if only half of them, even now, after two years of misgovernment and previous years of incompetence, realize that they are being (mis)led by a totally dishonest, and utterly incapable, part-Jew chancer, what on Earth will it take to wake up the other 49%? Unbelievable.

There was nothing wrong with holding the garden party, as such, but the lies and hypocrisy are stunning. The country should never have been shut down for the sake of “Covid” in the first place, though. Madness.

True. That McTernan idiot (who was rather rude about me on Twitter years ago, before the Jew-Zionist lobby had me expelled) has always struck me as rather ignorant, and it seems cannot even think logically. The TV vote mentioned was a UK-wide poll open to anyone, at will; the North Shropshire by-election was limited by reference to geography and voter-status.

As a matter of fact, Blairite, pro-Israel (pro-“intervention”) idiots such as McTernan are a major reason why the British people despise (as Hitler called them) “dirty democratic politicians” (they also despise paid, though ignorant, “advisers” such as McTernan). Adviser to the Labour Party, Australian Labor, and then to Scottish Labour (which failed, disastrously): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McTernan.

McTernan now works, as “senior fellow”, in yet another “advisory” role: https://www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/person/john-mcternan. Here is its Board: https://www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/about-us/board-members.

BCW describes itself thus: “BCW is the global communications agency built to move people. We set strategic direction and create powerful, unexpected ideas that move our clients forward.” On its website BCW describes McTernan as a “leading strategic thinker”!

In the words of an old British film, “don’t they ever twig?“…

Good grief! I know that I have always referred to the part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer and fraud presently posing as Prime Minister as “Boris-idiot“, but that information surprises even me.

Leaving ideology, stricto sensu, aside, there must be a way to ensure that complete idiots such as “Boris” cannot reach a position of ministerial and, a fortiori, prime ministerial responsibility. This goes beyond the fact of the Jewish lobby etc; it goes to the role of the msm in the UK, in particular, meaning that the British people are very badly served and advised by the blockheads (often) who scribble for newspapers and/or appear on TV as “expert” or “informed” talking heads.

The “shopping trolley” referred to is, apparently, Boris Johnson.

I have blogged about Cummings himself a few times: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/01/03/dominic-cummings-a-government-of-dystopia-and-lunacy-posing-as-genius/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/.

The ridiculous monkey-on-a-stick really thinks that North Shropshire was largely the result of the Owen Paterson sleaze scandal! That was, at most, 5% of it. Try these: the continuing —and worsening— migration invasion across the Channel (and the empty words of earlier migrant invader Priti Patel); the biosecurity police state emerging out of the “panicdemic”; the lack of action on social care, transport and other areas; and the vast amounts —truly vast– utterly wasted on Test and Trace, “vaccines” and the rest of the “Covid” nonsense.

Monkey-on-a-stick seems to have no understanding of the anger and insult felt by the people (including those in North Shropshire). It has nothing much directly to do with the stupid “Covid” “rules” and “laws”, but everything to do with people feeling insulted, disrespected, and laughed at by over-privileged, overpaid, and self-promoting (and mutually-promoting) types such as Boris-idiot, his overbearing and cretinous mistress/wife, the Allegra Stratton-type “comms” mouthpieces, and a pack of clowns posing as ministers, most of whom could not run a whelk stall.

Two people I know went down (if such be the bon mot) with “the virus”: my 20-something Australian niece (in London), who was told to drink water and take a few Paracetomol, and my then 99-y-o mother-in-law. The first recovered within a couple of weeks, the second never had any symptoms at all (routine testing in hospital discovered her supposed infection).

As I have blogged before, there is a large bloc of people in the UK who basically want to be controlled, told what to do, what to wear, what to think. Many are “Remainers”, many are (self-proclaimed) “antifascists”, and those on Twitter are often the (usually) idiotic who say that they are “FBPE” etc.

Not sure that I agree with Hitchens here. The few Trotskyists and similar “Leftists” I knew at and immediately after school were all pedestrian in mentality. Some claimed to be both Communist and anarchist! Trotskyism —a dummy intellectuality for the mediocre. Surprisingly (?), many Trotskyists have always been Jew or part-Jew (as, latter, is Hitchens).

I am also not in agreement with Hitchens when he refers to “Left wing” sympathies having been less popular in the (?) 1970s or late 1960s. I myself never use the terms “Left” and “Right” as meaningful, but certainly socialism of the old sort is just passe now, nicht wahr?

1945 propaganda film

American propaganda film from 1945, echoing the kind of anti-German views propounded during WW1 by writers such as John Buchan.

The above tweet typifies not only the view of John Rentoul, but also of the “New Labour” type of System commentator (and politician) generally. They think that politicians should —mainly— find out the public/msm view (via polling, focus groups etc) then do whatever that research suggests in order to be going with the popular tide; to be “electable”. I disagree. Leaders must lead, must make judgments based on their own views and assessments.

In 1928, Hitler and the NSDAP were very definitely not popular. They got only 2.8% of the popular vote. However, their integrity and vision impressed that same fickle public when, after the collapse of the world finance-capitalist economy in 1929, the vision of a German renaissance was held out. The NSDAP scored 33% in 1932 and, with Hitler as Chancellor, 44% in 1933.

Integrity. Congruence. Vision. Belief.

Dominic Cummings. What a very odd little man. How did someone like that attach himself to the very top of government in the UK? On the other hand, the same might be asked of Boris Johnson.

The sort of issue which happens when a superficially “liberal” regime (such as under the “Labour”-label governments from 1997-2010) passes kneejerk laws “for public protection”, but which scarcely protect the public while at the same time trashing the true rule of law and civil rights. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imprisonment_for_public_protection.

There have been other such laws, such as the very bad law known as Communications Act 2003, s.127, under whch jokers, satirists, socio-political commentators, and those discussing the fakery around the “holocaust” narrative have been harassed and even imprisoned. Singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz for one.

Even I myself was questioned, in 2017, after a cheeky Jew from Essex made malicious complaint to the police of his area about tweets I had —allegedly— posted. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 may now face repeal, following the recent report by the Law Commission, but there are a number of other “kneejerk” laws still standing, such as that by which almost all firearms were criminalized in 1997. As usual emotion led thought: only three “gun massacres” have occurred in British civil history, of which two were pre-1997 (Dunblane and Hungerford).

As a result of politicians wanting to get public approbation for “doing something”, privately held pistols were effectively banned, even if held by clubs. Has that stopped “gun crime”? No. There was a later “spree shooting” (in 2011) by someone using licensed shotguns and rifles, and there have been innumerable shootings by criminal gangs and individuals.

Priti Patel is not only as thick as two short planks, she is also a proven colluder with (agent of, more or less) the Israeli state and the Jewish lobby (which is 99% pro-migration-invasion); further, she is herself, effectively, a migrant-invader, who would have been serving behind the counter of a Kampala grocery store had her parents not come to the UK.

Apsana Begum

Where does one start? First of all (obviously), she is not of English or British origins: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apsana_Begum. Secondly, she has (of course) never had a real job, just political agitation and the usual “diversity” and “anti-racism” bs.

“In response to allegations that the ex-Mayor Lutfur Rahman was behind her political career, Begum told Eastlondonlines: “It is grossly insulting, as well as being rooted in racism and misogyny, to assume that I have no agency of my own and that I must be a ‘proxy’ or ‘stooge’ for a man I have not spoken to for six years.” [Wikipedia]

Strangely enough, her defence at her recent fraud trial was quite or almost the reverse: that she had been coerced into doing things by her estranged husband…

I presume that Apsana Begum is still living in her council flat. While, in principle, I have no objection to an MP living in a council flat, MPs do get paid about £85,000 a year (plus fairly generous expenses), so it does seem unfair on the poor and homeless of Tower Hamlets that she continues to occupy a cheap flat when she could afford a better private one (or to buy one on a mortgage), and bearing in mind that Limehouse and Tower Hamlets is a safe Labour seat (and near-rotten borough), so she can probably expect to be the MP for a long long time (unless a national revolution occurs, please God).

In England, it is unlawful for newspapers or others to enquire about the detailed composition or views of members of a jury during or even after a trial, so we do not know the racial and/or religious composition of that acquitting jury. Pity…

Of all the countries in the world, the one I would have thought, years ago, would be least likely to turn into an NWO/ZOG “woke” dictatorship or tyranny would have been Australia, where I myself was at school for three years in the late 1960s (Middle Harbour PS and North Sydney Boys’ High).

Seems that times have changed, to put it tritely.

I was friendly, in 1996-97, with the Australian Ambassador to Kazakhstan, and his lady ambassadress. He updated me, when he and his wife were my guests at dinner (at my favourite small Georgian restaurant, where I and guests were usually the only diners) on the demographic changes since the 1960s, in particular the huge increase of both population and built area (especially in and around Sydney, where I had been as a child, living in Mosman and then Cremorne).

That population explosion and suburban expansion has continued.

In the late 1960s, Sydney had about 2.5M inhabitants; now it is 5.5M. Australia as a whole had about 12M people; now about 25M.

As for the composition of the population, far more mixed now: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demography_of_Australia#Immigration_and_country_of_birth

Diary Blog, 16 June 2021, including final look at tomorrow’s Chesham and Amersham by-election

Chesham and Amersham by-election

I recently included an appreciation of the upcoming by-election at Chesham and Amersham in my daily blog: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/06/06/diary-blog-6-june-2021-including-the-upcoming-by-elections-chesham-and-amersham-and-batley-and-spen/.

The by-election is being held tomorrow. I thought to add my last-minute thoughts.

As I blogged previously, I see no prospect of any upset to the expected Conservative victory in that constituency. Even in 1997, the Conservative Party vote topped 50%, and has exceeded 63%. 55.4% in 2019.

Incumbency is usually helpful to a candidate, so it is an open question as to whether the new Conservative candidate will get a very high vote-share in what is, after all, a by-election.

It may be that there will be a protest vote favouring the LibDems, but I doubt that it will be anything like enough to dislodge the Conservatives. The LibDem vote in 2019 was 26.3%.

The main interest is in seeing whether Labour will lose its deposit. I think that quite likely. The Labour vote in 2019 was 12.9%: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chesham_and_Amersham_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s.

The Green Party scored 5.5% in 2019, and it may be that that will increase at the expense of Labour. At any rate, it is hard to see many people bothering to vote Labour after Starmer’s lacklustre and indifferent attitude at Prime Minister’s Questions today.

Tweets seen

Well, you would think so, were you not aware how (to coin a phrase) “totally fucking hopeless” the Crown Prosecution Service is. The CPS is run by the Director of Public Prosecutions. Starmer was DPP. His predecessor was Alison Saunders. Both “totally fucking hopeless”, of course.

Time after time, since it started but especially in the past decade, the CPS has proven itself all but useless, stuffed as it is with mediocre (or worse) Common Purpose types.

For example, the CPS recently tried to pursue a case against persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, based on a provision under the Public Order Act 1986. Such a prosecution requires the assent of the Attorney-General. When the matter came before the Westminster Magistrates’ Court on first appearance not long ago, it transpired that not only had the CPS not received the said assent, but that the CPS had not even requested it, being unaware of the necessity!

Alison Chabloz is now being prosecuted on the same alleged facts, but under anotherAct with a far less severe maximum penalty on conviction (her trial is set down for one day on 1 September 2021).

On the above premises, why would Starmer be any good in his present role? He’s only there because the Jewish lobby wanted Corbyn binned. Who better to “regain the confidence of Jewish people” (which the msm, quelle surprise, thinks is all-important) than someone who is completely in the pocket of that Jewish lobby, and who is married to a Jewish woman lawyer, their children being brought up as if fully-Jewish (celebrating all the Jewish supremacist holidays etc)?

Starmer is about 5 years too late. If he thinks that bringing up the Jo Cox stuff now will help Labour either at Chesham and Amersham, or at Batley and Spen, he is very much mistaken, in my view.

I was looking at tweets by such as political journalist John Rentoul. For people like that, Prime Minister’s Questions is meat and drink, but for most people, PMQs is scarcely even noticed. System Clown A scores point off System Clown B.

As to little Matt Hancock, I blogged about him nearly two years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/09/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-matt-hancock-story/.

Another cliche “mad psychiatrist”. A complete mask zealot too. It is more than worrying that idiots of this sort exercise influence in the UK. I feel sorry for her children though.

I am no medic but, looking at her tweets, she gives the impression of being rather unbalanced. Says that she works and has worked (at her campaigning organization) 80 hours per week, without days off. Since 2018. As a psychiatrist, she should know that that sort of schedule has deleterious mental health results.

True, the shouting mob scene was not very nice, but in the UK, opinion that does not fit the System narrative (pro-lockdown, pro-facemask nonsense, pro “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, pro-migration invasion etc) is now suppressed, and people are repressed if they voice dissident views on social media or even in blogs. On those premises, shouting crowds may, before long, be the least of the forms of resistance.

The mainstream media are now more or less the megaphones of the System. Those who work for msm outlets are more or less System propagandists.

Just one incident in the UK’s slow (?) descent into multikulti barbarism.

Well, though I do not disagree with everything he has said, Swayne is a complete waste of space as an MP.

Update, 15 June 2022

On the other hand, I was right to see signposted another way-station on Labour’s slide to fringe irrelevance. I thought that Labour might get a vote as low as 4%; in the event it was 1.6%.

As to Vietnam, the war could only have been won by the South (with American help) had there been a massive ground invasion of the North, with the attendant risk of superpower non-proxy conflict. There were Soviet fighter pilots actually on service in North Vietnam (I met one myself in 1996).

Whether that sort of ground invasion of North Vietnam would have succeeded long-term is of course doubtful (cf. Afghanistan and Iraq in the post-1989 era). In the end, war is a method of achieving political goals (in most cases). Peace is usually achieved via political consensus or victory.

This is pretty bad news for Labour, though unsurprising if you think, like me, that Labour now has no reason to exist except as a rather niche party, one for blacks, browns, and some of those who work in the public sector.

I am not yet ready to blog about Batley and Spen, the by-election for which is set down for 1 July 2021. If Labour loses, at it did at Hartlepool recently, Starmer is probably a “dead man walking”, politically.

At the moment, I incline to the view that Batley will be an uphill struggle for Labour, bearing in mind that George Galloway (under aegis of “Workers’ Party”), and the Yorkshire Party, are both standing. Galloway is rather a busted flush, but still has his supporters. The Yorkshire Party seems to have support as well. Those two together will probably get about 5%, which might make the difference between Labour holding on or not.

The Labour vote there has been declining since the rigged by-election of 2016 (in which Labour was not opposed by the other System parties).

The “right royal” circus

I find this all hilarious. Harry is now effectively a critic of the whole “right royal” circus, yet he himself is of course a major recipient and beneficiary of it. After all, take away the “royal prince” thing, and what is Harry? A youngish man (37 this September) who only became an Army officer because he was “helped”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Harry,_Duke_of_Sussex#Education, and who would have had no chance of high rank based on merit (he held the rank of Captain at the end of his active service).

Indeed, without his birth privilege, Harry would probably have drifted into some line such as car salesman, Hooray Henry estate agency, or similar.

I doubt that Netflix etc would take any interest in him at all were he not supposedly “royal”…

Actually, thinking about Harry’s “help” in passing exams at Eton (he ended up with two “A” levels, a “B” in Art, and a “D” in Geography), I am reminded of a story I heard a long time ago (about 1981) about a similar “royal” educational straggler.

The young lady in question was a relative of the Queen who struggled academically. She needed intensive personal tuition in languages in order to gain entrance to an Oxford college. This was in the late 1970s, as I understand it. The college in question had bent over backwards to accommodate the Palace, but insisted on the young lady having the special private tuition if they were going to offer her a place.

In the end, she was accepted by that Oxford college, after having been worked on for weeks, perhaps months, by an elderly White Russian resident in London. All under cloak of secrecy, but of course there are no secrets, as such, just levels of secrecy.

President Macron has just welcomed to the Elysée two YouTubers called Carlito and McFly, both of whom dressed down for the occasion with one appearing to have a tea cosy on his head. The pair are all the rage among that section of society who get their kicks on YouTube, although despite their adolescent antics Carlito and McFly are actually a couple of middle-class men in their mid-thirties.

What followed was excruciating, what one conservative commentator described as ’36 minutes of soft barbarism… [which] erodes the verticality of power and deconstructs the state’. All of which begs the question: what was Macron thinking in inviting Carlito and McFly into his palace?

To win the youth vote, perhaps? A poll last month suggested that the 25 to 34-year-old demographic is more inclined to vote for Marine Le Pen in next year’s presidential election than for Macron. But they would not have been won over by what they saw, a president ill-at-ease in his suit and tie, a fixed grin on his face as he exchanged wooden banter with two lowbrow clowns.

There is a feeling among the French I speak to that the country is nearing a tipping point and that voters, alone in the booth, might decide that with no dignified politicians left, they might as well give Le Pen a go.” [The Spectator]

The Brigade uses social media such as Twitter and Facebook as well as psyop techniques to influence populations and behaviour. David Miller, a professor of political sociology at the University of Bristol who studies British government propaganda and public relations, said that it is “involved in manipulation of the media including using fake online profiles“.[25][26][27]

In September 2019, Middle East Eye reported that Gordon MacMillan, a Twitter executive with editorial control over the Middle East and North Africa, is also a reservist officer in the 77th Brigade. Both Twitter and the British Army denied that they have a relationship or agreement. Miller said it was hypocritical of Twitter to close accounts alleged to be connected with non-Western governments while having links to the British Army.[28][29]

On 22 April 2020, during the UK government’s daily coronavirus briefing, General Nick Carter confirmed that 77th Brigade are working with the Home Office Rapid Response Unit “helping to quash rumours from misinformation, but also to counter disinformation”.[30][31][32]

On 7 May 2020, The Economist interviewed Carter on the role of 77th Brigade in fighting coronavirus disinformation.[33] The Defence Cultural Specialist Unit was used to monitor the internet for content on COVID-19 and to look for evidence of disinformation related to COVID-19 vaccines.[34]” [Wikipedia]

Alison Chabloz

Latest news is that (whether by malicious interference by the Jew-Zionists, or because of bureaucratic ineptitude), Alison Chabloz is not going to be released early. It seems that she will now be released having served half her headline 18-week sentence, but minus the 4 days and part-days that she served in 2020 prior to her successful appeal.

The firm expectation now is that Alison will be released from prison on Friday 28 May 2021 (i.e. the day after tomorrow).

Alison’s appeal against conviction and sentence will be heard on 3-4 June 2021 in the Crown Court, probably at Southwark.

The bigger picture is the totally chaotic mess now presided over by the part-Jew political chancer, “Boris” Johnson.

Hartlepool by-election

I have blogged previously about Hartlepool’s significant by-election, which is being held today: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/05/05/diary-blog-5-may-2021-with-more-thoughts-about-the-hartlepool-by-election-and-latest-news-about-alison-chabloz/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/04/06/hartlepool-by-election-2021-preliminary-look/.

Mainstream media are predicting a Conservative Party victory, while continuing to pretend that a contest between two very similar System parties (and a few cranks and no-chances) is “democracy”, though it seems that, thanks to FPTP voting, the main binary choices will capture about 90%, maybe 95%, of all votes cast.

Turnout will probably be quite low.

I was just looking at a couple of tweets about the contest:

That refers to the outgoing (going, gone…) MP, Mike Hill, who denies sex pest allegations but who decided to stand down as MP because of them. Hm…Still, he can always return to work at the local library…or do a bit of useless trade union droning…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Hill_(British_politician)].

People may be surprised that I repost the tweet of a Jew-Zionist scribbler, but “there is no religion higher than truth”, as they say.

The fact is that communities such as Hartlepool are clutching at straws. That does not mean that they are totally stupid. True, the misnamed “Conservatives” are not worthy, and they have been in power, nationally, for 11 years now, but the voters of Hartlepool have had Labour MPs for nearly 50 years, and feel exploited. They can only bin Labour by voting Conservative (or at least staying at home and not voting).

In some countries at some times, failed political parties (members of) face imprisonment and even execution. In the UK, we are kinder. Those parties simply face political death. It happened to the once-all-powerful Liberal Party (though a ghostly shadow still exists, the LibDems), it is now happening to both Labour and Conservative parties. Labour first to go, it seems.

That one, above, the well-known Jewish actress, used to block me on Twitter, I think (my Twitter account was closed down by a Jew-Zionist claque-barrage of complaints in 2018) and even tweet against me occasionally. Correct here, though. Look at that tweet by one Grace Blakely:

Image

Where does one start? Perhaps by expressing “surprise” (no, not really, not these days) that a young woman [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Blakeley] from a privileged background, privately-educated in Hampshire, and with (for what it is worth these days) a “First” from Oxford, prefers the philosophical-psychological term “ressentiment” to the straightforward standard English “resentment”…I suppose that she picked that up while doing her PPE back-of-postcard degree at St. Peter’s, Oxford. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ressentiment

Secondly, by examining the claim that those with a “degree” (even if a “McDegree” from a “McUniversity”, are “the educated“. That is so Blair-1997…pretty outdated as a expression of reality.

Sadly, the “degree” from a “university” is no guarantee of real education, now that nearly half of all persons over 17 go to a “university”. Going to Oxford is no guarantee either, as both Grace Blakely and, for another example, Louise Mensch (if anyone remembers that stupid creature) bear witness.

As a matter of fact, both of the above are also examples of the pointlessness or near-pointlessness of Twitter. Grace Blakely has, apparently, 132,000 Twitter “followers”, while the lunatic Mensch has (looking at her Twitter account for the first time in a couple of years) 281,000! One Direction pop group has 31.5 million!

Grace Blakely is apparently appointed as a Visiting Fellow at the Open University! This country is so screwed, it really is…

Arguably unfair, because the misnamed “Conservatives” are really as bad as equally-misnamed “Labour”, but the Tony Blair Labour government deliberately imported millions of non-Europeans with the express intent of destroying Britain’s racial and cultural foundation. The Jewess, Barbara Roche, a minister of state under Blair, admitted as such privately. Labour now is really just the party of the blacks and browns and/or the public service workers (and a few other smaller groups). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Roche; https://www.migrationwatchuk.org/press-article/83; https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/tony-blair/12175813/Tony-Blair-accused-of-conspiracy-over-mass-immigration.html.

True up to a point.

Were I maliciously-inclined, I suppose that I should encourage pedestrians to push off the riders whenever seen. However, where I live there are few “e-scooters” (in fact, I believe that I have only seen one), so on this occasion I shall say “none of my business”.

The revolution devours its own children…

This time, involving the tiny and unpleasant “Resisting Hate” “antifascist” troll-org, led by the well-fed Roanna Carleton-Taylor of (near) Chesterfield, Derbyshire.

Seems that either Roanna Carleton-Taylor or an associate (she uses several Twitter accounts anyway) posted something involving a banana to a black, which apparently is considered “racist”, though I cannot see why. I myself eat the occasional yellow fruit, after all.

Anyway, there ensued a several-days-long Twitter storm in a teacup, which dragged in “Dr” Louise Raw (prolific pro-“antifa” tweeter) and at least one mentally-disturbed Jewish Zionist woman from North London.

“Dr” Raw has not tweeted for the past week, I now notice.

I concede that I have not followed the nonsense, and am merely amused at the supposed “anti-racists” of different types all tearing chunks out of each other.

The denouement? Roanna “antifashwitch”, the former “@Witchofpeace” on Twitter (she tweeted once about how she kills spiders when putting a curse on someone! Odd…I thought that that brought down bad luck upon the killer…), has changed her account to “@oilpaintwitch” and has posted this:

Can you “resign” from an “organization” that is just you yourself, with a few other idiots? Oh, well, there it is.

Well, I do not pretend to have followed the progress of this silly (and typical) Twitter-spat between groups of Twitter trolls whose greatest achievement (in their own little minds) is when someone of whom they disapprove is “deplatformed” by being expelled from Twitter or Facebook. In fact, I seem to remember that (((Roanna))) and (((some))) associates tweeted happily about my wrongful disbarment in 2016: for the disbarment, see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

As I have blogged previously, I have never seen any of these sorts of “antifascist” and/or Jewish Zionist trolls offer any policies or ideas about how to improve society (except by advocating the “removal” of those they deem “Nazi”, “fascist”, “racist” etc). It’s all negative and all, at root, based around their own hate (they, unwittingly ironically, always claim to oppose “hate”, of course…). cf. “Hope Against Hate” etc.

I have to admit that I am rather curious as to what happened to the £12,000 that Roanna, Mike Stuchbery (the pro-“antifa” tweeter, would-be “journalist”, would-be “historian” and general grifter), and a Pakistani solicitor extracted, via GoFundMe, from 700 well-meaning (?) mugs, on the premise that Stuchbery was going to sue “Tommy Robinson” (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon). Never happened. As far as I know, the only action taken was a very poorly-drafted letter from the Pakistani, which may or may not have been delivered to “Robinson”.

For me, that whole “sue Tommy Robinson” thing reads like an out and out scam. I may be wrong, but if I am, what did happen to the money? https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/11/27/mike-stuchbery-and-tommy-robinson-legal-dispute/.

London Mayoral election

Apparently, one of the minor candidates for London Mayor has been associating with some alleged fraudsters: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/should-someone-who-wants-london-24047689. Strangely enough, though, I saw nothing in the msm about the fairly recent video put out by “Conservative” candidate Shaun Bailey, which featured a woman best described as a “Balkan fraud”, and who was convicted of both fraud and forgery at Southwark Crown Court in 2013. Come to that, Bailey himself was, arguably, lucky not to face more than a police investigation when his non-profit quasi-charity had to be wound up some years ago. Oddly enough, all the monies had disappeared, and large amounts had apparently been spent on hotels and restaurants for…Shaun Bailey.

Fortunately for West Indian-origined Bailey, the voters in today’s election will have voted by the time I post this; in any case, Bailey has little chance of beating Sadiq Khan in the contest.

I wonder why the Conservative Party picked Bailey? I remember seeing him on one of the Andrew Neil politics shows on the BBC, years ago. Unimpressive. A West Indian with a big mouth and not much of interest to say. I suppose that, London now being a mainly non-white city, the Con Party decided that it needed a non-white candidate. Well, that fell flat (it seems).

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.

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/

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”.
