Owen Jones

1,000 mugs? I mean “patrons“… “Jack Monroe” must be envious. She now has “only” 635 utter mugs still subsidizing her lifestyle.

Seriously, though, who on Earth would send money to Owen Jones?

Apart from anything else, Jones has made several hundred thousand pounds (perhaps even half a million) from his books, owns his own apartment or house, and has all sorts of income streams, but the Patreon one alone has been bringing in between £36,000 and well over £100,000 a year.

Then there is his Guardian column. I do not know how much he gets for that, but I would think at least £50,000 p.a., possibly a very great deal more.

My own assessment of Owen Jones, published in 2019: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/04/a-brief-word-about-owen-jones/.

Britain, home of the “grifters”, from Owen Jones and “Jack Monroe” through Julia Grace Patterson and many more.

Puzzling, though, nicht wahr? I mean, imagine that you are the sort of deluded mug who sends money to “grifters” like Owen Jones or “Jack Monroe”. What part of “Owen Jones is already making an income of £100,000+ a year” impels you to think “I know what to do with my small disposable income— send Owen Jones (who makes £100,000 a year or more) £10 or £20 a month extra“? I have to admit that I find that mentality utterly incomprehensible. There are so many dim and/or deluded people around.

Apparently, Ms. Ardern has somehow acquired, during her years in office, about £25M (no-one seems to know how, or from where), so for her it may make sense to live “the good life” while still relatively young. She represents the transnational conspiracy, not the New Zealand electorate.

Andrew Neil makes the point, but at the end of the day, a corrupt Kurdish carpetbagger like Zahawi is not really British, nor European, and has no real understanding of our way of life (as it was before the migration-invasion). He is certainly “Wily” and “Oriental”, but no “Gentleman”, in short.

“Jack Monroe”— the show rolls on

I have no more information than is publicly available, but it seems to me that most of the msm, and most of the “celebrity” crowd, are cold-shouldering “Jack Monroe” now, leaving only the pitiful mugs subsidizing her on Patreon. Somewhere between £2,250 and £27,940 per month. My guess is still about £6,000.

Adapting the well-known words of Lady Caroline Lamb about Byron being “mad, bad, and dangerous to know“, “Jack Monroe” has become “mad, bad, sad, and dangerous to know“…

As in a Ponzi scheme, the “Bootstrap Cook” will pay off the most persistent complainants, at least pay them some money, before any small claims are filed; she can use the monies still (incredibly) flowing in from others.

Meanwhile, “Bootstrap Cook” has found a fortuitous deflection-mechanism— tweeting prolifically about the resignation of Jacinda Ardern in New Zealand, and about how wonderful she supposedly is or was. “Useful idiots” are already tweeting in support. Nothing said about the totally “woke” nonsense that has taken over New Zealand because of Jacinda Ardern and those behind her, and nothing said about the dictatorial “lockdown” policies she spearheaded.

Now she compares herself to any and all abused or supposedly abused women, deflecting from the storm of criticism of her “grifting”.

As for the “rape and death threats“, I have no idea whether Jacinda Ardern received any, or any credible, ones; I have not seen any evidence that “Jack Monroe” has received any at all.

Basically, “Jack Monroe” has spent a number of years taking money from people, tweeting prolifically, doing the odd interview or photo-shoot, drinking heavily and also (allegedly, plausibly) snorting cocaine, going on jaunts here and there, occasionally speaking to audiences for (apparently) up to £15,000 a time, and spending like a drunken sailor.

Incidentally, what does it say about System-drone journalists such as Emily Maitlis that they cannot, apparently, see through the fakery of “Jack Monroe”? What else has escaped them?

Not sure that I agree with tweeter “@NicolaRSpurr” here about “Jack Monroe” being basically decent; the more I see about her the less I think she is at all decent. Quite mad, of course, as well.

Ha ha! Peak “Jack Monroe” (?).

As Oscar Wilde put it, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery“…

Ecce the latest “Jack Monroe” fan: “CEO, Interplanetary Expeditions Ltd. | Space technology transfer broker | R&D in advanced space propulsion systems; cooking; flying; music; Republic of Liverpool“. Not sure whether to add “bullshitter” to that list. Maybe, maybe not. In either case, does not seem to be anyone noticeably “poor” or “struggling“.

Jewish behaviour, or merely Jew-Zionist behaviour?

Not so surprising, perhaps, that the daughter of Tony Curtis is rather odd: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Lee_Curtis#Personal_life.

I think that “Jack Monroe” has three main goals at present:

1. to deflect all the criticism of her lying and “grifting” by clinging, albeit implausibly, to the Jacinda Ardern resignation and to the wider topic of how women are supposedly trolled on Twitter etc (which seems odd— many of the worst Twitter trolls are women, usually anonymous; at least they think so);

2. to try to retain or regain her reputation with the msm journalists and “celebrities” who made her into a sort-of “celebrity” herself;

3. to keep going her Patreon scam as long as possible (she is making tens of thousands monthly from it).

Actually, I think that, unless some kind of criminal or civil action impacts her, “Jack Monroe” has pretty much had her “15 minutes of fame”. I cannot see what more, new, or interesting, she has to say, really.

The main matter of importance now is to do what we can to ensure that, after whatever is going to happen in the next few years, Europe is rebuilt as a fully European space.

“Diversity” (blah, blah)…

As some comments say, the defendant will in fact be out in 10 months, and quite likely earlier. The sentence is not really the “nearly two years” of the Daily Mail‘s “reporting”.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11646993/Recruit-numbers-Armed-Forces-fall-30-amid-warning-supporting-Ukraine-makes-weaker.html

Recruit numbers in the UK’s armed forces fall by 30% amid warning that supporting Ukraine in Russia war makes us weaker.

The figures, which indicate Britain’s Armed forces are shrinking at a rate, have emerged after the head of the Army, General Sir Patrick Sanders, warned the country was ‘weaker’ after donating so much equipment to Ukraine.

[Daily Mail].

That is before you factor-in the extra effect of having political nincompoops at the head of affairs, people such as Ben Wallace and, before him, Gavin Williamson: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/02/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-gavin-williamson-story/

While he welcomed the equipment being put to good use to end Russia’s illegal occupation of Ukraine, General Sir Patrick said it could not be denied that the UK’s combat effectiveness would be compromised. 

The MOD is coming under increasing pressure to reconsider this commitment due to the conflict in Ukraine and the heightened security threat to the UK posed by Russia, Iran and China.”

[Daily Mail].

Take away Zelensky’s ricebowl.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2023/jan/17/uk-foreign-secretary-defends-weapons-supply-to-ukraine

The UK foreign secretary has justified the supply of Challenger tanks to Ukraine, saying it was designed to bring the war to a quick conclusion and there was a moral imperative to end the war soon due to the casualties and cost.

This war has been dragging on for a long time already. And now is the time to bring it to a conclusion,” James Cleverly told a Washington thinktank…”

[The Guardian]

Talk of “political nincompoops“… Does James Cleverly really believe that any war against Russia can be brought “to a conclusion“, let alone “a quick conclusion“, with Russia, in effect, losing?

I suppose that that sort of view, based on total ignorance, is what you get when your Foreign Secretary is a half-caste with a “degree” in “Hospitality Management”…

There are so many idiots of that sort around, and so many people, also, who “presume too much”.

…and, once again, we see that a “Jack Monroe” fan is, again, a lady of a certain age, not (it seems) either “poor” or “struggling”, and (again) willing to tweet loudly without knowing basic facts.

Tweeter “@gillianography”, another typical “Jack Monroe” fan: not “poor“, not “struggling” (and almost certainly a reader of the Guardian), as well as, in her case, (and as she herself says) “neurodivergent nerd“, “brand strategist“, “copywriter“, and supporter of LGBTQXYZ etc.

As blogged previously, not only the “poor” and “struggling” but also the standard “working classes” of yore seem to be entirely absent from the ranks of the “Jack Monroe” supporters, as they sit reading their copies of the Guardian in, as it might be, the Waitrose cafe.

What is the point of…”Jack Monroe”?

There used to be a BBC Radio 4 series called something like What is the Point of…? Ah, here it is…seems to be still running: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01lt45k. Various things, from universities to Formula 1, were, perhaps still are, examined with a view to their utility.

I ask, “What is the point of Jack Monroe?” Not as an individual, but as a minor socio-political phenomenon.

The only “point” I can see for “Jack Monroe”, in that sense, is that nearly a decade ago, she raised the fact that many many people were facing hardship unprecedented since, arguende, the 1940s. So far so good. I was still quite favourable to her, or at least neutral, months or years ago: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.

In the well-known saying, “when the facts change, so do my opinions” [not the exact words of J.M. Keynes].

Leaving aside the “alleged” fraud and/or “grifting”, what is or has “Jack Monroe” really done to either reduce “poverty” (however defined), or to make it more bearable for “the poor” (however defined)? In my view, not much, if anything.

In my opinion, anyone can say “buy the cheapest food lines from [any supermarket]”, or (such as) “make tuna salad using canned tuna in oil, rather than buying olive oil separately” (I made that tip up myself…maybe I could be “Bootstrap Cook (2)”!).

As for the food produced by “Jack Monroe”, the less said the better, from what I have seen, though some might be acceptable. Many have said, though, that her costings are largely fictional. Again, leaving that aside, does that really help the “poor and struggling”?

Critics (including me) have made the point that to say, “I can feed a family of four for a week on £20” effectively says, by implied —if unintended— subtext, “State benefits are more than adequate“. It may be that four people could live, albeit on the most basic level, on only £20 a week, but food is of course only one expense of that hypothetical family. Heat, communications, water and electricity bills, clothing, transport. Etc.

Looking at how “Jack Monroe” has simply ignored inconvenient facts (such as her £20 shop not including items already purchased and stored), the truth is that she is just not very good at working out anything. Her various food recipes and plans are worthless, really.

As for the (non-existent) “Vimes Boots Index” of inflation, she not only has not produced it but, actually, is not capable of producing it (not with any accuracy, though she may eventually cobble something together in order to fool her hardcore Twitter fans).

Is advice such as “rinse sauce off cheap tinned pasta, replace sauce with something else, then serve” really useful? To anyone? The same goes for “take a tin of sardines, mix it up with rice, or pasta, and curry powder; heat and serve” (my abbreviated versions).

In a Britain where instant fake “celebrity” can make completely ridiculous people famous and wealthy, the “brand” of “Jack Monroe” (as supposed “single mother on State benefits, saving herself and others by clever budgeting and cooking“) gained some resonance around 2012-2013, but now that people know that she has not been “poor” for many years (and possibly never was), the “brand” is surely worthless?

I really cannot now see much point to “Jack Monroe” (the “brand”, that is), and I think that it is telling that, apart from a few idiotic journalists and (possibly) Nigella Lawson, most of the continuing fans of “Jack Monroe” seem to be people with mental problems.

Labour Party

When I was a teenager, in the early-mid 1970s, the annual conferences of the big System parties were events heavily reported, and shown live on at least two of the (then) three television stations. Decisions were taken, policies made. That was then. Now? Just PR events designed to present an image to the public. All the conferences are now pathetic. Labour up first this year.

BBC Newsnight presenter Emily Maitlis, a Jewish woman [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emily_Maitlis], with Blairite Labour manipulator Peter Mandelson, also of Jewish origins [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Mandelson].

#JewishLobby…

In a sense, quite funny that even those “Labourites” who despise
Starmer and all his works are incapable of saying openly that the plot to remove Corbyn and return Labour to the pro-Israel fold was fundamentally, in fact almost entirely, a Jewish (Lobby) one.

All of the MPs who plotted in expensively-rented country houses and at Westminster against Corbyn were Jewish and/or members of Labour Friends of Israel. Here’s one non-Jewish one— shameless moneygrubber and expenses cheat Joan Ryan: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Ryan_(politician); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Ryan_(politician)#Expenses_controversies.

Here’s Joan Ryan conspiring with Israeli Embassy official and intelligence officer (surprisingly), Shai Masot. They talk about a one million pound slush fund from Israel, ultimately designed to help get rid of Corbyn and replace him with a Jewish Lobby-approved puppet:

That pro-Israel cabal in the Parliamentary Labour Party had, as a major aim, to replace Corbyn with a suitably pro-Jewish and pro-Israel puppet. We know the result: Corbyn was replaced, by Keir Starmer, a former Director of Public Prosecutions who is married to a Jewish property lawyer; their children are being brought up as if fully-Jewish. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keir_Starmer#Personal_life.

One of the most toxic groups of Jewish Lobby fanatics in the UK, the small but vocal so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] was involved in the “Get Rid of Corbyn” “operation” ((operation))):

Not that I ever had much time for Corbyn: poorly educated, not hugely intelligent, with primitive Lego-brick socio-political concepts built into a 1970s Collet’s London Bookshop-style of an ideology. No understanding of the necessity to protect European race and culture. In short, pretty poor, but at least Corbyn was not in the pocket of the Jewish/Israel lobby.

That MP looks rather dishonest, in my opinion. I had not previously heard of him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Graham_(politician). Ex-diplomat, ex-Barings Bank, ex-China old hand, speaks 8 languages: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Graham_(politician)#International_experience. Makes one think…

That tweet immediately above would be more convincing had the Labour Party not been the instigator of the whole anti-Welfare State, anti-social security policy current, which started in earnest under that horrible little blot Alistair Darling [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alistair_Darling] when he was in Cabinet under Blair and Brown (from 1998). Darling was, repeatedly, an expenses cheat, and eventually had to resign from the Faculty of Advocates (Scottish Bar): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alistair_Darling#Expenses_claims.

In fact it was Labour, not the Conservatives, who brought in the hated and fraudulent ATOS organization to “assess” (cheat) the disabled and sick, though the misnamed “Conservative” Party made the whole system even more cruel under (Conservative Friends of Israel, expenses cheat, fraud, liar) Iain Dunce Duncan Smith.

Starmer’s idea (sole idea?) seems to be to position Labour somewhere vaguely near to where the Conservatives are, then say to the public, “we are similar to them, but not so corrupt, and more competent“. Will that work for Starmer? I doubt it, but in a rigged binary system, who knows?

More Jewish/Israeli interference…

…and full marks for writing “to pressure” rather than the usually-seen (and usually wrong) “to pressurize“…

Bending the knee to black mobs. He does it, ideologically, to the Israel Lobby as well. More so, in fact.

The decadence implied in that restaurant bill is unmistakeable. Apres nous le deluge? Perhaps sooner than that…

So a young Jewish woman (brought up in the UK?), and who would probably not dream of joining the British army, flies to Israel to enlist in the Israeli armed forces? What does that say about “their” real loyalties? Even the ones brought up here. Even the ones born here. Strangers in a strange land…

Indeed. HR and related departments are riddled with Common Purpose drones now, and the same poison has deeply infiltrated the police, and other organs of the State; also law firms, barristers’ chambers etc.

The above situation has pretty much finished off the UK trade unions, too.

It is really right in front of us now, in plain sight.

The fact is that people do need petrol for their cars, if they live outside the major cities and have to do things; unless, like Hitchens, they can cycle or walk to Oxford railway station, take a (1st Class?) train trip to London, thence (via taxi?) to their newspaper office.

Having said that, those who were filling up cars already well-filled, or filling jerricans, are just sheep, but without the bucolic charm. Hitchens was right to note the inaccuracy of the “keep calm and carry on” stuff. People now mostly have no idea of the panic to which Londoners especially were subject in the latter months of 1939.

Hitchens is right, there. Panic over the “virus”, which has killed or helped to kill maybe one in a thousand people in the UK, yet complacency (albeit resentful) about the migration-invasion and the non-white breeding rate, together an existential danger to the British people.

Americans, at least official ones, and the American public as a mass (misled by a Jewish-Zionist msm), are quite often bullies. They love to hit those who cannot hit back. I have often wondered whether this trend started in WW2, when American aircraft bombed much of Germany and Japan to rubble (and also large areas of France, Italy and elsewhere), while knowing that the US homeland was completely safe from retaliation.

I suppose that that that is why the 2001 World Trade Center attack hit Americans so hard. It showed that America could be the target of a large and deadly attack.

American mistreatment of prisoners of war also goes back far, even further than WW2 —when US troops and other organs carried out war crimes such as shooting captured German soldiers, mistreating captured German naval personnel, and starving numbers of POWs to death (as in the “Rhine Meadows” war crimes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rheinwiesenlager).

Americans started to abuse their prisoners long before Abu Ghraib, Bagram, and Guantanamo, even long before WW2. The mistreatment of —especially Confederate— prisoners was widespread in the American Civil War, and after Lincoln’s assassination, some of those suspected of involvement were kept hooded for months, just as at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib…

Quelle surprise…just as, in the UK, one would not expect immigrants to vote UKIP, Brexit Party etc, let alone BNP, NF or the like.

In fact, that is one reason why the “Parliamentary road” is probably a no-win situation for us, despite 80% or more of the inhabitants of the UK still being white northern Europeans.

Beautiful whale film; as to the “climate change” stuff, something is happening, in some parts of the world, but causation is debatable, as is (even more so) whether humanity can affect those global and interplanetary processes (except by disappearing).
