Jack Monroe

It seems to me that the msm, and its “celebrity” endorsers such as Nigella Lawson, have already moved on from “Jack Monroe” but that, at the same time, a hard-core of loony “LGBTQXYZ” types, would-be “socially-progressive” wishful thinkers, naive mugs and/or “fans”, mostly “of a certain age” will continue to tweet in support of her, and that quite a few “mugs” will continue to send her money via Patreon. After all, no less than 634 utter mugs are (as of today) still signed up to send her between £3.50 and £44 each month, despite the disclosures on Twitter, Tattle, and in the msm.

I may be wrong, but I have wondered whether “Anthea Rogers” is in fact “Jack Monroe” herself. Maybe, maybe not.

Once again, a tweeter alleges (by innuendo) that “Jack Monroe” is or was a cocaine abuser. I should not be at all surprised, for several reasons.

Import corrupt non-whites to the UK, allow them to become businessmen, MPs, government ministers, and guess what happens? They import, with their selves, their behavioural tendencies.

More “trans” nonsense. Wants to be a Member of Parliament. Impossible? Who knows, now that Eddie Izzard is seeking selection.

Harsher than would be my judgment, but they have a point— it shows weakness. In any case, though he often —not always— writes sensibly, Hitchens is “conservative”, perhaps, but not “national” or nationalist: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/

Only social nationalism can save Europe now.

She knows, instinctively.

When I was a child of just 12 (late 1968), higher forces impinging on my consciousness probably saved my life.

It happened like this: my family lived at the time on the Cremorne/Mosman border in Sydney, Australia. We decided to go on holiday to Queensland by car, a long journey even now, but longer then, when there were no motorways, only a seemingly endless highway with one lane on each side. No particular destination, but in the end, we washed up in Bundaberg, after 800 miles of motoring in the family Ford Falcon.

[1960s Ford Falcon, Australian version; my family’s one was white, though]

The 2-3 day trip had not been without incident or interest. As said, no motorways or dual-carriageways in Australia then, once outside Sydney. The highway took us north, past small encampments of Aboriginals in Northern New South Wales, and also past the banana groves of the region.

The traffic was light, at times very light. At one point, our car was told by police to drive quickly through a limited area of bushfire on both sides of the highway.

We overnighted at a motel at Coffs Harbour [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffs_Harbour], then a very sleepy town which is far busier today. Over the border, we passed through the gaudy oceanside town of Surfers’ Paradise, mostly single storey then, but which decades later developed into what is now the Gold Coast [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_Coast,_Queensland].

[Gold Coast highway, c.1965, about three years before I saw it]

The South Coast region was a very popular holiday destination for servicemen returning from World War II. However, inflated prices for real estate and other goods and services led to the nickname of “Gold Coast” from 1950. By the 1960s the Gold Coast’s infrastructure had grown considerably, and the local building industry was able to support the development of high-rise holiday apartments and hotels (the first of which, Kinkabool, was completed in 1959). Surfers Paradise had firmly established itself as the leading destination and the introduction of bikini-clad meter maids in 1965 to feed parking meters by the beach to prevent holidaymakers from getting parking fines was a particularly popular innovation.”

[Queensland State archives]

In fact, I never heard that region called “Gold Coast” then, but only “Surfers’ Paradise” or simply “Surfers’“.

Now, a large city (600,000 pop.) exists there:

[the Gold Coast as it is today]
[Gold Coast panorama, 2015]

We travelled on through long stretches of sugar cane.

The Millard family holiday in fact nearly ended disastrously when, just after the swift near-tropical darkness had fallen, a slow-moving freight train, carrying sugar cane through the night, just missed the car as it crossed the track. The level crossing had neither lights nor barrier, and not even a warning sign.

I say “near-tropical” because this was about 200 miles south of the Tropic of Capricorn.

My family decided, the next day, to go to a camping area by a beach in the then undeveloped Bargarah area, about 8 miles from Bundaberg, Bundaberg being now, in 2023, a much more sizeable and populated place but then, in 1968, known only for sugar, rum, and Bert Hinkler, an aviation pioneer whose statue stood prominently in or near the quiet town centre. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bert_Hinkler; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bundaberg; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bargara,_Queensland.

[central Bundaberg as it now is; the population is now 70,000]

I wandered around under the coconut palms, having a near-miss when a heavy coconut in its fleshy surround crashed down, missing me by inches. A quiet beach on the Coral Sea, with hardly anyone there except a handful of families in tents and, nearby, a small cafe or snack joint of some kind, right by the beach.

The next morning, I felt unwell, and, oddly, told my parents, really insistently (I remember that), that I needed to go to hospital. What prompted that request I have no idea. Guardian angel? Instinct? The pain was (if I recall) not too bad, just a dull ache most of the time.

Anyway, after initial thoughts from my parents that I just needed rest in the heat of the Queensland summer, my mother reluctantly drove me to Bundaberg, where it was soon established at the General Hospital that I needed an emergency appendectomy. Apparently, had the appendix not been extracted, I might well have died.

I was in the hospital for nearly two weeks (that was more common back then), and was then flown back, with my younger brother, to Sydney via Brisbane (where we transferred to a large Boeing jet).

At that time, Bundaberg’s airfield had only a kind of hut as the “terminal”; and I was one of only a very few passengers on the propeller-driven plane, a Fokker Friendship with about a dozen or so people aboard (it had come from other coastal towns first).

My parents and youngest brother drove back to Sydney later; they probably recalled the holiday very differently to me.

[Bundaberg Airport today. It was redeveloped in 1986, and is now a far cry from the short strip and “terminal” hut of 1968, outside which was a flagpole, its flag lifeless in the near-tropical heat]

Anyway, the incident has always stuck in my mind as exemplifying how the overmind, or “higher forces” (?), can sometimes save people from injury or death.

I have had other such, though non-medical, “saving graces”, including one in Ireland in 1979.

He is right. “We are where we are”, though…

I heard on the radio yesterday that the UK is getting even deeper into the Ukrainian war by sending the Zelensky regime 12 (it now seems 14) Challenger 2 tanks. Old but certainly serviceable. This gets close to being actually at war with Russia. Madness. I may not much like London and some of the areas around it, but I still would prefer them not to be destroyed by a nuclear attack…

[Challenger 2 main battle tank: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Challenger_2]

The reaction of the Zelensky regime is that it wants 300 tanks! Their ghetto negotiating style would be funny were it less offensive.

Where would the Kiev regime be without Western aid constantly stoking the war? In Lvov, if not Warsaw, probably. This was a failed state even before the war. Now it may have arms and ammunition funnelled to it by the Western powers, but 20% of the population is outside Ukraine now; the country is largely without electrical power; it has few gas supplies; it cannot manufacture; it cannot export much of its continuing agricultural production.

The only answer (saving Russian occupation of Kiev, Odessa and the territories east of the Dnieper) is for there to be a ceasefire on both sides, pending negotiation of at least an armistice and a freezing of the actual hostilities on both sides.

Incidentally, the largest tank battle of WW2 (and in history generally), Kursk, involved a total of over 8,000 tanks, incredibly: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Kursk.

Overall comment on recent political events and on the new Government

For me, one of the major aspects, looking at both the Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak Cabinets is the sheer mediocrity, at best, of the Cabinet ministers appointed by both Truss and Sunak (several appointed by the former have now been reappointed to various offices by the latter).

Here we have a country of 60-70 million inhabitants, a country with a long and distinguished history, and which has produced more for the world, arguably, than most if not all others [including, among hundreds of examples, the Industrial Revolution, trains, hovercraft, jet aircraft, radar, modern sanitation etc], and the best our political system can throw up (so to speak) is this pack of idiots? In the old Private Eye caricature of the newspaper editor Bill Deedes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Deedes], “shome mishtake, shurely?“.

Brexit was badly mishandled. How to save it? First thing is to stop arms, ammunition, and money going from the pockets of British taxpayers to the dictatorial regime of the Jew Zelensky in Kiev.

Second necessary thing is for Britain to withdraw trade sanctions against Russia, restore full trade links and, also very important, cultural links. This will benefit Britain hugely, especially now that the EU, USA, and other states have pledged to intensify trade sanctions. An open field for British commerce, with little competition.

Third thing would be to distance the UK from NATO.

In return, I have no doubt that Russia would supply gas at cost, or even below cost, to the UK; a direct pipeline could be constructed. Britain would thereby stave off both energy shortages and high prices.

The above would not, of itself, solve the problems in dealing with the EU single market, but would mitigate them.

I have discussed previously on the blog that “Jimmy Carr Destroys Art” show, created by Jews at Channel 4, and featuring grinning little monkey and tax evader/avoider Jimmy Carr. Don’t want to waste any time on the bastard today.

Incidentally, though, perhaps I should add that I despise the concept and actuality of Jimmy Carr Destroys Art for wider reasons than simply because one of the works of art destroyed was by Adolf Hitler.

I would not, for example, want to destroy Jewish art, such as the works of Chagall, or even the degenerate contemporary “art” of moneygrubbing “artists” such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, who are not Jewish themselves, but their work heavily promoted by the wealthy and well-connected Jew, Charles Saatchi: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Saatchi.

Actually, the German Reich did not, as a rule, destroy what it considered “degenerate” and/or Jewish art; it actually held exhibitions of it, as educative for the people.

Exactly. The Jews at Channel 4 who are behind Jimmy Carr Destroys Art, and the “woke”/”antifa”/Jews/etc who watch it and like it, just want to go “ha ha! That’s one relic of ‘Nazism’ gone!“. It panders to a love of destructiveness, especially on the part of the Jew-Zionist element.

Even those who, like me, commend the basic principle behind National Socialism, would not (I certainly would not) say that Hitler’s youthful paintings are “great art”. They are mostly no more than competent. There is no argument for destroying them, however.

As for Eric Gill, a perverse person, but his art is interesting and also significant for its role in its time period. You could say much the same of many great artists of the recent and further past.

In the end, there will be only one way to eliminate the evil “woke”/”antifa” etc from society.

Justice?

I applaud mercy on the part of sentencing judges, in principle, but not when justice itself is cast aside.

Look at that non-sentence, very typical of today.

It sometimes “seems” that, unless the case is one of murder or terrorism, or tweeting/blogging a few criticisms of the Jewish influence in the UK (eg in the cases of Alison Chabloz or Jez Turner), it is all but impossible to get imprisoned in the UK, no matter what you do to other people.

Reminds me of times past, about 30 years ago.

When I was living intermittently in New Jersey in the early 1990s, I was invited to lunch by American friends of someone I knew at the Bar in London. The three Americans were all partners of a small law firm specializing in shipping and insurance.

When I arrived at their office in downtown Manhattan, near Wall Street, a small group was just leaving, including a bearded Jew wearing a skullcap.

The American lawyers explained that that group had been there in connection with a matter involving insurance, in which matter the people I was visiting were on the other side. The bearded one was said to be a rabbi, who owned commercial property in Brooklyn. I was surprised. I was unaware that Jew rabbis were allowed to own, or did own, business enterprises.

My American hosts laughed and told me that the rabbi was suspected of having had the building in question torched for the insurance. “We call it Jewish lightning!“, they explained.

My religious education was enriched further by another encounter at that office: I met another lawyer who came in and had a cross on his forehead, marked out in ash. I asked what that was, and was told that it was to do with Lent in the Eastern Orthodox church, the lawyer concerned being a Lebanese Christian [https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/article/meaning-cross-ashes-ash-wednesday]. New York City, the melting pot…

I had never seen that (the marking of the forehead), nor even heard of it, previously.

A memorable day also for the interesting lunch that followed, held at an old New York club (I think not now in existence, though), called the New York Drug and Chemical Club, and founded by the leaders of those industries a century or more before, but now situate 50 or more floors up in a skyscraper. Interesting to eat clams and drink Bloody Mary cocktails as the odd helicopter slid by the window (silently), en route to the East River Heliport. A New York experience not had by most visitors to the city.

A year or two later, I hosted the same Americans when they came to London on business. We went to the unique (and now also closed down) Luba’s Bistro at Yeoman’s Row, Knightsbridge, one of my regular haunts back then.

Bring your own wine, beer, or vodka, and enjoy their unchanging 1950s menu, an eclectic mix of Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Georgian, and a bit of French, all consumed in a crowded restaurant where you would be seated near (and I do mean near) the next table of diners, who might be anything from a Church of England canon (accompanied by young blonde wife) who was “an honorary archimandrite of the Eastern Orthodox Church” (overheard by my then girlfriend), to Soviet types who might or might not have been spies of some sort.

Happy days (I suppose).

Of all the ways governments have wasted money in the past, the “panicdemic” nonsense, and particularly the “Test and Trace” nonsense was the most egregious; almost unbelievable.

As previously blogged, if the Triple Lock is abandoned, then the 60+ age group population of voters will probably abandon the Conservative Party en bloc.

Gavin Williamson

Unbelievably, Gavin Williamson, one of the most stupid MPs of the lot, is back in government, this time as “Minister without Portfolio”. I think that he is a freemason, perhaps of some rank. Nothing else explains why he is even an MP.

As to Eddie Izzard, that creature apparently intends to seek selection as a candidate at the next general election, perhaps for a seat in Sheffield. His prominence as entertainer will probably ensure an easy victory.

If someone, not even from the 1960s or 1970s, but as recently as the 1990s, were suddenly to land in the Britain of 2022, he or she (not “he/she” or “they“) would find much of this country pretty mad, as well as very much in decline in most ways.

The National Trust, like the RNLI and most big charities and institutions, is now riddled with traitors of all sorts in high positions.

Mark Twain had it first and best: “there are lies, damned lies, and statistics“…

Someone can be “competent” to “run the economy”, and increase GDP etc, but if the benefits of that strong economy go almost entirely to the richest 20%, 10%, 5%, 1% (and in the UK it is mainly the 1%), then who can blame the other (as it might be) 99% of the population for saying “screw it! I don’t care!“(?).

I am reminded of the middle-aged man before the Brexit Referendum who was asked by a reporter whether he would change his Leave stance if he were convinced that Brexit would damage the economy. His answer? “I don’t really care…it’s only me and the dog“…

Nearly” a failed state?! Absolutely a failed state. It has been for most if not all of its 31-year history.

Liz Truss and her doomed government

So only 22% of people are at all pleased that Liz Truss is or is about to be Prime Minister (once rubberstamped by the Queen). Not such a surprise, in view of the fact that the voters have not been asked to vote on this. At least, only those voters who are Conservative Party members, i.e. about 1 in every 500 people, of which only just over half voted for Liz Truss.

Liz Truss has therefore been voted for by about one person out of every 900 people. Not much of a mandate.

Even most of those who normally vote for Conservative Party candidates are not pleased about this— a mere 41% of those voters.

More on Ukrainian “refugees” in the UK

Why I’m glad to see the back of my Ukrainian refugee

As Olena’s luggage once again filled half of my downstairs corridor, ready to be loaded into the car that would ferry her to her new accommodation, I could hardly wait to see the back of her.”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11182855/Why-Im-glad-Ukrainian-refugee.html

I suggest that all well-meaning and/or virtue-signalling mugs thinking of hosting such guests read that Daily Mail article before buying into a pack of trouble.

Another point is that most of Ukraine is not a war zone in reality, not yet anyway. With the exception of part of the Black Sea coastal belt, and the odd military base, almost anywhere west of the Dnieper is not under attack, and that is well over half of the country. The same is true (so far) of the majority of territory east of the Dnieper.

In all, about three quarters of Ukraine is pretty safe and life is continuing in a relatively normal fashion, bearing in mind the overall situation of conflict, and the fact that Ukraine is not a real state at all but a failed, shambolic, corrupt, crime-ridden kleptocracy, run by a Jew cabal.

To my mind, more like a “booster” (injection) that poisons and kills the recipient. Anyway, as far as I know, only former MP Mark Field has been able to get Liz Truss into orbit, and she very quickly fell to Earth in the muddy fields of South West Norfolk.

No “diversity” then, just a black/brown monochrome mass or mob. White Genocide. The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan.

The global population is far too high. Twice the number compared to 1970. For me the key question after the overall number is the proportion of European/white people as a proportion of the whole— shrinking rapidly. A very small minority already.

We need to prepare for a new world with a smaller population, and that population mainly “Aryan” (stricto sensu, post-Aryan or white European), in order to prepare a quantum leap in human evolution.

An extract from the blog of exactly a year ago:

The System needs at least two “major parties” (even if their combined membership is only about 600,000, i.e. 1% of the UK population) because it preserves the facade of a binary choice, the facade of supposed “democracy” etc. So fake Labour has to exist, just as fake Conservative Party has to exist, in order to fool the mass of the people into thinking that they have a real choice. They do not have any such choice.

Also:

Labour, like the “Conservatives”, has to exist and pretend to put forward a bunch of policies, when really both parties have been stripped of real policy, real difference, and even real politicians (look at the pathetic deadheads now crowding the Commons and Lords alike). You want to see what “ZOG” looks like? Just look at “British” political parties and MPs today.

Nothing has changed.

Cashing-in pensions

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/mum-quits-nhs-pension-pay-27734990.

Leaving aside the immediate issue reported on (fuel inflation), it should not be possible to “cash in” a private pension below X-age. If I am not mistaken, the right to cash-in was brought in, or made much easier, when the part-Jew, George Osborne, was Chancellor of the Exchequer.

A private pension is to help someone of pensionable age, clearly. It is not just a long-term investment of some kind. It is against public policy in the broad sense to allow pensions to be simply cashed-in.

In fact, it is contra public policy in practical terms as well, quite apart from the ethical aspect, or impact on the individual, because someone who cashes-in a private pension but then later, at or above pensionable age, becomes poor enough to require State “Pension Credit Guarantee”, will have his or her State Pension augmented by Pension Credit so that he or she receives a minimum of £185 per week (as well as other benefits, such as Housing Benefit etc if applicable).

In other words, not only the individual but also the State itself will, in that instance, lose out financially.

“The world is not without kind people”

https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/entertainment/celebrity/mrs-hinch-home-rent-free-27735161.

The world is not without kind people“, says a Russian proverb. One sees that constantly, despite also seeing contrary news.

Look at the story about “Mrs. Hinch”. She has given away a £600,000 house simply because she wants to help a family, and “does not need” the capital proceeds of any sale.

Remarkable. I have no idea whether her husband is wealthy; she herself is said to be “worth” about £1.5M (presumably discounting the donated house).

It was not clear to me, on skimming the report, whether the house donated has actually been transferred, or just given to live in rent-free for as long as permitted. Either way, very generous.

If only the very wealthy of our society, those possessing tens, hundreds, or thousands of millions, were as kind-hearted.

Not that I agree with everything he now says, but no matter. He is in general on the right track. I may be an “idealist”, as some have called me, but I do have pragmatic aspects as well.

Ask “Robert Maxwell” or Jeffrey Epstein. Oh, no— you can’t, because they snuffed it under mysterious circumstances. Ask Ghislaine “Maxwell”, then. Oh, no— you can’t, because she is in prison for much of the rest of her horrible life, and afraid of being murdered (as was, she thinks, her father) by Israeli Intelligence killers.

Liz Truss and Priti Patel, and Keir Starmer (etc) should be wary of being puppets of Israel and the Jew lobby. It’s one rouble to get in, but two roubles to get out…

Temperature variations

Incredible how varied the UK can be in terms of temperature. Where I live (Hampshire coast) the temperature at 0900 hrs this morning was 22C, in London at same time it was 33C, but in Edinburgh only 16C.

I do not usually approve of rowdy behaviour, but if a few frustrated Brits in Greece were to give the idiot a kicking, I have to admit that I would not be upset about it.

Incapable of creating a civilization, incapable of maintaining one even when provided to them, and most of them incapable even of simply living decently as unwanted “guests” in the civilization created by white Europeans.

England, my England

I was sent the following short video by a regular reader and commentator on the blog.

Worth watching. The comments below the film (if seen on YouTube) are also worth seeing.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NCS:_Manhunt]

It seems that the plan to demonize people like the character in the film backfired; the BBC has never shown the series again; neither is it available on DVD.

Sea level rise

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/aug/10/east-antarctic-ice-sheet-in-our-hands-climate-action

Interesting report on the situation in respect of the main ice sheets, namely the East Antarctic, West Antarctic, and Greenland.

It seems that, were they to melt completely, the global sea level would rise by 7 metres Greenland Ice Sheet), 5 metres (West Antarctic Ice Sheet) and East Atlantic Ice Sheet (52 metres). A total of 64 metres, or in my preferred metric, about 210 feet.

A sea-level rise of 210 feet would be truly apocalyptic, even though it would probably take place over several hundred years.

The UK has an average height above sea-level of about 531 feet, but within that is a peak of 4,413 feet (Ben Nevis) down to towns and cities at, or close to, sea-level.

For example, much of London would be flooded in that scenario: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest_points_in_London.

On a less apocalyptic level, if the Greenland Ice Sheet were to melt entirely, which might (or might not) happen by 2100, that would result in the seas rising by up to 24 feet, in itself enough to drown a large number of major cities around the world.

I once lived at Little Venice, London, which I believe is about 60 feet above sea level. Much of Central London as well as the Thames-side areas would be flooded by a 24-foot rise.

My problem with many of the predictions is that they are made with an agenda, to make people believe that some kind of “zero-emissions” strategy, even if carried out only in Europe, or even only in the UK (the UK being responsible for only 1% of global emissions) would halt the melting of the ice of the poles. I doubt it.

The world is in a state of constant change, sometimes gradual, sometimes catastrophic. Humanity lives on the surface of events which it can do little to alter.

The most ridiculous story of the month?

A crowded field, but I nominate the declaration by unpleasant comic Eddie Izzard that he is now a “woman”, and henceforth demands to be termed “her” and “she”. Possibly even more ridiculous, even the supposedly reactionary Daily Mail has complied with the demand: see https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11100935/Eddie-Izzard-takes-inspiration-Zelensky-fresh-bid-MP.html.

The Mail goes on to describe the Jew dictator Zelensky as “a comic who becomes a good leader“. “Good leader“?! Ha ha!

More seriously, once you start lying about such basic things as what actual sex people are, truth, which is the foundation for any decent society, starts to ebb away; with it, that foundation also ebbs away, until nothing works properly, and nothing can be relied upon. Britain is already some way down that path.

London. Zoo.

USD $1.5M between 8 litigants. Even after costs, they will surely end up with over $100,000 each. Not bad for being notionally “offended” by an order that was rescinded an hour later. More “diversity” madness.

Ellwood is always in the forefront of attacks on Russia. He was a junior officer of the Green Jackets before he was transferred to the Reserves, taking up the rank of Lt.-Col. in the secretive 77th Brigade: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tobias_Ellwood; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/77th_Brigade_(United_Kingdom).

The Wikipedia entry mentions that Ellwood was born in New York City, and was also at school at Bonn and Vienna before attending Loughborough University (course unknown to me), the Cass Business School at City University in London, then Sandhurst.

Ellwood’s parents’ work is not mentioned in Wikipedia, but we can probably assume that it was diplomatic, or linked to diplomacy. Both Bonn and Vienna were, at the time, capital cities, and there is a British Consulate-General in New York City.

It seems that all that expensive education has been wasted on Ellwood. Does he really not see that conflict with Russia might lead to war with Russia?

I suppose that Russian forces would not waste a nuclear missile on Ellwood’s decaying Bournemouth constituency (he himself lives in a wealthy semi-rural enclave called Holdenhurst), but in the event of war, Russian missiles would more or less raze much of England to the ground. Goodbye to the Palace of Westminster, and almost everything else, in that event.

Attacks on Russian aviation in Crimea, in Belarus etc. The war may be about to enter a new phase, should the Russian forces be ordered to retaliate.

The Zelensky regime is trying to create provocations, because it knows that the only way it can avoid defeat in this war is to bring in NATO (NWO) forces on the Ukrainian side. Already, the arms shipments from the USA and UK have reached colossal proportions, and, bearing in mind that the arms, ammunition, and training are all being supplied free of charge, represent something that is not only a proxy war against Russia but also not far from being an actual or direct war against Russia.

So far, the NATO/NWO backers of the Jewish regime in Kiev have not attempted, at least publicly, to rein in the behaviour of Zelensky and his clan.

This is madness. The UK and other states have already weakened their economies and societies by the pursuit of the “Covid” “panicdemic”, shutting their economies down for months and years. Now those same societies are facing gas shortages and a huge rise in price of oil and gas.

The UK, after nominal Brexit, should have opened up friendly relations with Russia on a broad front, including supply by Russia to the UK of cheap or even cost-price gas and oil.

The fact is that those presently ruling the UK prefer to conspire with their fellow NWO operatives, implementing the strategic assault on Russia, and such other parts of the NWO/ZOG agenda such as the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, rather than putting the needs of the British people first.

Inadequate sentence

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/man-fed-neighbours-cats-poisoned-27709264

A man has admitted feeding poisoned tuna to his neighbours’ cats in the first case of animal cruelty to be referred to a crown court.

Tristian Paul Pearson, 44, left out tubs containing fish tuna and a high concentration of ethylene glycol.

The substance is highly poisonous to felines and is contrary to the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

Two cats living nearby – Luna and Bailey – later had to be put down after eating the tuna and falling sick.

Pearson, of Bargoed, Wales, pleaded guilty to an Animal Welfare Act offence and was handed an eight month suspended prison sentence.

It was the first case of its kind to be referred to a crown court.”

[Daily Mirror].

What on Earth is the point in giving the courts a higher possible maximum level of punishment if the sentencing judge refuses, in effect, to sentence harshly enough in a plainly serious and premeditated case of cruelty such as this one?

In reality, not theory, 8 months but suspended, handed down in the Crown Court, is less of a punishment than the previous maximum of 6 months (3 months actual imprisonment) that a magistrates’ court might have imposed.

Absolutely pathetic sentence.

Tristian (?) Paul Pearson, of West Street, Bargoed, Wales. Evil bastard.

Trial backlog

I happened to see a case which illustrates the backlog in the “justice system”, a backlog caused almost entirely by the “panicdemic”.

A policeman in Hampshire has just pleaded not guilty to a sex crime allegedly committed in January this year. His case has been set down for trial at Isleworth Crown Court on 4 December 2023, nearly 2 years after the offence is said to have been committed and 16 months after committal proceedings.
