BBC World Service

I have complained in this blog previously about how poor the BBC World Service now is. It surpassed itself (negatively) last night. First, a report about an Afghan journalist who decided to relocate (illegally) to Europe with his family. Apparently, the family are now in Europe and their favoured destination is now Finland. Supposedly “refugees” but really economic migrants.

Then there was Outlook, once (long ago) an interesting show, but this time we had an interminably long (it seemed; in fact about 30 mins) story about an unfortunate man whose useless mother had given him a whole raft of neuroses.

A report about a Ugandan gospel singer followed. Cue howling. Finally, a report about a Panamanian who makes “artworks” out of plastic bottles.

I’m out.”

There were better things, such as a report on Kazakh nomads forced to flee the Soviet Union in the late 1920s, their descendants now stuck in China and subject to anti-Muslim repressions (along with the Uighurs).

Overall, though, the World Service is almost unlistenable now, like Radio 4.

Tweets seen

Not sure what Nick Griffin means (I have no idea what The Clash sound like); presumably some call to action directe

I am not so sure that that would be a complete answer. Most unmarried men (even gays) are not pederasts, and some married men are.

Exactly. Laurence Fox may well be sincere, but that does not prevent him being (((controlled opposition))). cf. UKIP, Brexit Party, Breitbart, Katie Hopkins, “Prison Planet” Watson etc.

I have blogged previously, many times, about the “privatization of public space”; I mentioned it in my talk at the London Forum in 2017 (now also censored…). I may not particularly like Trump, but he is the President of the most powerful state on Earth, and yet even his tweets get censored! This is the problem: that Internet quasi-monopolies are leaving citizens with effectively no rights qua citizen, only bare contractual rights (that amount to nothing).

More tweets

Peter Hitchens has a point, but it might equally be said that there is far too little anger in British politics. Far too little anger at migration-invasion. Far too little anger at the Jew-Zionist power and influence contaminating both politics and economy. Far too little anger at the war waged on the poor, unemployed and disabled by evil persons such as Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, Esher McVey, the jew “lord” Freud etc since 2010 (though started, quietly, under fake “Labour” from 1997). Far too little anger at the level of poverty and deprivation in the UK. Far too little anger at the sick decadence of the mass media, not least in the BBC.

If one is Peter Hitchens, a semi-approved System scribbler sitting in Oxford, then a degree of ivory tower complacency is, perhaps, the obvious attitude. The same is true of the fake Spectator-type dissidents, the Toby Youngs and Delingpoles. Some of their views are valid, but many not, and they offer no solutions.

For once, Julia Hartley-Brewer has a point. The country has lost its mind (****ing or otherwise): wage slaves in shops becoming harsh-voiced authoritarians acting like sergeant-majors ordering their cadets to adjust their masks! Scared rabbits wearing facemasks even when alone in their cars, or walking in the open air! Same idiots swerving to avoid being within many feet of others (admittedly people have been known to cross the street to avoid me even before “the virus” came to us! I am told that I sometimes walk scowling….when I am in fact just thinking!)…

The “government” of this poor country has certainly lost whatever mind it had. As for the population, many, perhaps half, want more severe measures! Are they the same that will be soon losing their jobs, having to exist on peanuts State benefits, losing their rented or “owned” (on mortgage) homes?

If Boris-idiot has failed to behave, or even look like, a real Prime Minister, then Keir Starmer has likewise failed even in his Opposition role (which he seems unable to understand in the slightest). Muzzled, photographed down on one knee in fealty to the blacks (who themselves are just “useful idiots”), and in thrall to the Jewish lobby and Israel. Starmer is just a useless System drone. Uninteresting. A waste of space.

Yes we have no bananas“! No wonder Diane Abbott has left front-line public life! (she kept the good old MP seat though, with its nearly £90,000 salary —and yet more for being on the Home Affairs Select Committee—, enormous expenses, and plenty of opportunities for coining it elsewhere): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diane_Abbott#Register_of_Members’_Interests; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diane_Abbott#Charging_fees_for_speeches_to_students.

After a lifetime scribbling for the System Press (Lugenpresse, Judenpresse), Hitchens still is unwilling to see the enormity of what is behind the “panicdemic”: the Great Reset, and the Great Replacement. Google both…

Exactly so. It is not just the “panicdemic”. The importation of blacks and browns and others (and their subsequent breeding) has changed a fairly homogenous society into a multikulti dustbin. The State then has to exert efforts to stay in control.

Tell me that I am wrong…

Late tweets

Happened to see that exchange. It really should no longer shock me that a barrister, and indeed from a set considered to be (and calling itself) “leading”, appears not to know the difference between “disinterested” and (as he obviously means…), “uninterested“. A sign of the times, I suppose…

Late music

Diary Blog, 25-26 February 2020

Was just watching the first episode of that excellent series, Reilly, Ace of Spies [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reilly,_Ace_of_Spies], now being reshown on Talking Pictures TV. What was and is so good about the series was that it keeps pretty closely to the known historical narrative. The only irritant is that, in the credits, the theme music, in fact the Romance from the suite The Gadfly, by Shostakovitch, is credited as having been “composed and directed by Harry Rabinowitz” (a South African Jew)! Disgraceful, though it may not have been Rabinowitz’s fault that he was wrongly credited as composer.

Coronavirus

Seems to be still spreading, expanding its range. Italy hard hit. I saw a graphic recently re. personal hygiene, washing hands etc in various countries of Europe. Italy was at or near the bottom of the scale. That may well be significant.

My Australian niece has just returned to London from Venice. She went there for the carnival, only to find most events cancelled. This is getting serious. We are told that 80% of people who get the virus have symptoms so mild that no medical help is required. However, that still leaves 20% who do require at least some help. About 2% of the whole are dying. If it became widespread in the UK and affected, say, a million people, that would mean that 20,000 would die and another 180,000 would require NHS help.

How would the already-overstretched NHS cope? Probably not at all well. The tabloid Press has behaved with its usual panic-stricken lack of caution, predicting half a million deaths in the UK:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/coronavirus-could-kill-500000-infect-21578658

The hope seems to be that this virus is more virulent in colder weather, meaning that, with the arrival of Spring and Summer across Europe and Asia, its effect overall may be blunted. Let us hope so.

Meanwhile, the Chinese (and China seems to be the source of all recent major infectious disease outbreaks except Ebola) are taking no chances!

Jew-Zionist “lawfare”

The malicious Jew-Zionist cabal known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA” is continuing its abuse of the English legal system.

https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/labour-activist-charged-as-part-of-police-probe-into-alleged-antisemitism/

I have blogged about these evil “people” in the past:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/01/12/the-campaign-against-antisemitism-caa-takes-a-serious-hit/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

The last laugh?

This made me laugh:

“Boris is no good in a crisis”

You heard it first here. I was blogging about Boris-idiot’s inability to face, let alone handle, a crisis years ago! Before that idiot became PM, even before his disastrous tenure as Foreign Secretary. I tweeted about it until mid-2018 (when the Jews had me expelled from Twitter). I continue to blog about it. Now, finally, people are waking up, slowly. Here is the always-amusing and often correct “Artist Taxi Driver”:

I had not heard the rumour that Boris-idiot cannot appear in public because his allegedly pregnant “ho”, Carrie Symonds (who, despite surpassing ignorance, exercises considerable influence behind the scenes at No.10), has given Boris-idiot a black eye. If “Artist Taxi Driver” is correct, the alleged black eye was not bestowed on Boris-idiot for his shambolic joke-prime ministership but because the idiot posing as Prime Minister has been indulging in yet more fornication, and his “No.1 Ho” objects to that.

Tweets are not friendly to Boris-idiot…

https://twitter.com/search?q=%23PartTimePrimeMinister&src=trend_click

Labour leadership

Just saw this very pertinent tweet about the Jew influence in Labour and how the three remaining candidates for leader have sold themselves:

…and the tweet below by Asa Winstanley is also very relevant, but the “anti-racist” me-too idiots in Labour have made fools of themselves. They oppose Jew exploitation in Palestine/Israel, oppose Zionist propaganda and warmongering by Israel, but pay lip-service to the foundations of the Israeli state! I mean:

  • the “holocaust” narrative, much of which is a farrago of lies, hoaxes, fakery and propaganda, protected in much of Europe by mediaeval-style “heresy” laws criminalizing “denial” (free historical examination and debate);
  • unwillingness to criticize or even see the exploitation, by Jews, of non-Jews outside the Middle East.

Labour is as good as doomed except as a fake “opposition” (as it was in the recent past too), controlled by the Israel lobby or Jewish lobby, unable to address the issues facing most British people, pro-mass immigration etc.

The question arises, if (when) the “Conservative” government is exposed as useless, to what can the British people turn, when the only “alternative” is an arguably even more useless “Labour” Party?

A social-national movement must arise, but as yet does not even exist.

Murder by another name

The fact is that Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, Alistair Darling, the jew “lord” Freud, Esther McVey, David Gauke, the heads of ATOS, Capita etc have never been punished for their crimes against the people. Not yet, anyway.

The legs of the traitor are not as long as the arms of the Cheka“… [Russian Civil War slogan]

Diary Blog, 13 February 2020 (including Cabinet Reshuffle)

Scameron

I was just thinking about the unholy mess Prime Minister David Cameron-Levita left behind him in various ways: Brexit, HS2, the cretinous “reforms” of Iain Dunce Duncan Smith etc. What a complete waste of space that Mischling Cameron-Levita was. Given credit by a stupid electorate mainly because his Eton and Oxford education (and family money) made him look the part.

Laura Kuenssberg

Listened to a brief piece by Laura Kuenssberg on Radio 4 Today. Two or three egregious mistakes. One was “secretary of states” (for a group of Cabinet ministers) when she meant to say or should have said “secretaries of state”. Paid hundreds of thousands a year yet cannot get basic English right.

Cabinet reshuffle

So far, some nasty people removed:

Ha ha! Now crazed Ayn Rand devotee and Jew lobby doormat Sajid Javid has “resigned” (read, ungrammatically, “been resigned”…). Good riddance. That’s his political career gone up in smoke. Hard to imagine the idiot climbing so high again. Another “Conservative Friend of Israel” gone (but then 80% of Con MPs are members, unfortunately). Ex-Muslim or apostate Javid was almost fanatical in his pro-Israel, pro-Jewish lobby stance, though. He even supported the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” criminals. Great news that he is screwed!

ds3

I am the wrong sex to be a tricoteuse (and cannot knit) but I am loving this, even without an actual guillotine beside which to sit. Tsar Boris is not someone for whom I have any respect, but (as the American blacks might say) “he done good”! I love a good chistka!

Mein Gott! The (born in UK) “Paki”, Sajid Javid, may have been kicked out, but only to be replaced by the (born in UK) Indian, Rishi Sunak! A former Goldman Sachs employee. His father-in-law is a hugely-wealthy Indian businessman. India is notoriously corrupt, its politics is corrupt. There is no need for the UK to descend to such levels. Why not —here’s an off-the-wall idea— appoint white British people to the Cabinet?…

NHS

The problem at the heart of the NHS is not really money (important though that is) but maladministration.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/harrowing-stories-burned-out-nhs-21487129

Robert Buckland

Confirmed in his job of Secretary of State for Justice, and Lord Chancellor. Surprising. I have heard him a couple of times on TV/radio. He does not really have the intellectual horsepower. Apparently, if reports are accurate, he used the word “epitome” on radio recently, but mispronounced it to rhyme with “Rome”…not what one expects to hear from a supposedly educated person, let alone a member of the Bar. Not even in these dumbed-down times (cf. Laura Kuenssberg etc).

Alok Sharma

Appointed Business Secretary. Born in India. He attended the same school as me, in Berkshire, but a decade later. When I was there, there were no Indians (though there were two half-Indian brothers, Anglo-Indians). Sign of the times.

Robert Jenrick

Jenrick is staying on as Housing Secretary. A smug little pissant, married to a Jewish lawyer and whose children are being brought up as Jewish. A complete doormat for the Jewish Zionist lobby. An enemy of freedom of expression.

Gavin Williamson

The former fireplace salesman, who plays with his pet spider while fantasizing about taking on Russia and China with his chocolate soldiers, is confirmed as staying as Education Secretary. A pathetic deadhead who would like to be Prime Minister. Our system of political selection and election is truly broken.

“Barrow-boy” Essex barrister and mouthpiece for the Jewish lobby. “Promoted” to Northern Ireland…Yeah, right…Bye…

Coronavirus

There is now a whole damage limitation exercise to propagandize us that China and its people and their habits are not to blame for these repeated waves of viruses which emerge from China, when China, its people and their habits plainly are to blame. Eating anything with legs, wings or fins, even if endangered species, not caring about animal suffering or depredation of wildlife. Screw the Chinese. There are far far too many of them on this Earth, which their numbers and habits are killing.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7999467/Chinese-encyclopaedia-teaches-children-animal-carries-SARS-coronavirus-rare-delicacy.html

Huang Yanzhong, a public heath expert at China’s Council for Foreign Relations, said that the sale of rare animals is deeply-rooted in Chinese culture, despite its illegality.”

“The freshness of one’s dinner is also prized, leading vendors to flog live animals, which are seen as a sign of luxury.” [Daily Mail]

Backward untermenschen.

Reshuffle

This comment by the LibDems about the appointment of Suella Braverman might just be the least credible thing said today:

Responding to the appointment, [Daisy] Cooper said: “Liberal Democrats will not allow this dangerous, authoritarian Conservative government to undermine the rule of law and erode individual rights and freedoms.

The LibDems are even more of a joke now than they were a few months ago. No leader, 11 MPs, no policies of any interest and, of course, no power.

The LibDems are not alone in being irrelevant at present. Labour is just a joke. All four contenders are doormatting for the Jewish lobby, none has much (if any) credibility. As for Corbyn (who he?) he is marking time as lame duck leader by staying in his comfort zone, yapping nonsense about the “rights” of Irish tinker “traveller” thieves and scavengers, and the deportation of Jamaican criminals etc.

Diary Blog, 21 December 2019

I start today’s diary blog with some music:

Now we move to the affairs of the day…

Mark Field

For myself, though I had little time for Mark Field in general, I found the film of his encounter with the protesting lady rather funny. Her smug, entitled, “I’m going to do this; no-one can stop me and my companions” became (after brief resistance) “oh…” as she was collared and frogmarched out. Hilarious. For those who have not seen the footage:

DWP and suicides caused by “welfare” “reform:

Iain Dunce Duncan Smith and the Jew “lord” Freud, David Gauke, Esther McVey etc are guilty, morally (and in fact actually) of causing the deaths of thousands of victims, including 600+ suicides. They have to be brought to account one way or another.

Alison Chabloz

A take-off of the early 1970s TV series, The Persuaders, by persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, starring imprisoned German dissident Ursula Haverbeck and the late Professor Faurisson:

I wonder how many people remember The Persuaders? The over-50s mainly, I suppose. People often say how good British TV used to be, but that is rather a rose-tinted view. There was plenty of rubbish too (such as, indeed, The Persuaders). Redeemed a little by the music of John Barry (and by that lady in the purple bikini!).

Signs of the times

I wrote a piece quite a while ago, in fact a whole year ago, about how TV ads and the so-called “soaps” are the chief outlets of mass propaganda. Of course they are! They are the most popular mass entertainment. Therefore, the most packed with System propaganda. So much so that some of the “soaps” actually have a message at the end telling viewers that if they have any problem similar to the “issues” raised, to call an official helpline!

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/

The propaganda effort has been stepped up this Christmas. The propagandists embedded in ad companies, TV companies etc have created a hybrid televisual “Christmas”, incorporating most of the traditional themes (though Christianity itself takes an ever-less prominent place), but mixing the traditional with key elements of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan. So we now see all the LGBT (etc) stuff very prominent, the celebrating families on TV ads are almost without exception mixed-race, or you see a blonde mother with what Boris Johnson, I suppose, would call a “piccaninny” child.

In fact, even ads not specifically “Christmas” now have the above elements. Renault (if I recall aright) has recently had an ad showing two little girls who are friends; later, as young adults, they start a lesbian relationship (strongly implied; in fact it is pretty express). Are people so naive that they do not discern the aims and forces behind this sort of thing? Sadly, that may indeed be the case in the UK.

The ultimate aim is to destroy the racial and cultural basis of society, both in the UK and also in other basically white Northern European states and areas.

“79% of British think that the UK is going in the wrong direction” [ipsos poll]

Commenting on the findings, [ipsos] said: “Levels of pessimism about Britain’s national direction continue to be extremely high when compared to other countries.

“In fact, since the series started in May 2011, levels of pessimism have never been higher in Britain than they are now. The current political turmoil and Brexit impasse are likely to be significant contributing factors to the negative mood but our data shows that other factors are at play too.

“Issues around crime, healthcare and poverty continue to worry Britons but it is also noticeable that concern about Climate Change is at record levels.

“Hostile press coverage aimed at the Labour Party at the 2019 election was more than double the intensity found during 2017’s poll, according to a study of the two campaigns” [The Independent]

Researchers at Loughborough University, who have been tracking political news coverage, also found that British newspapers were half as critical of the Conservative Party in this month’s election as they were in the one two years ago” [The Independent]

Quelle surprise…

CSrYbsNU8AATLhJ

Tracking newspaper coverage over five weeks of the 2019 election, the academics found that the intensity of hostile coverage of opposition parties peaked in the final days of the campaign. By contrast, coverage weighted by circulation was mostly positive about the Conservative Party, with coverage of Boris Johnson’s party improving in the final week.”

…and that’s before we even examine the role of the (((BBC))), (((Sky News))), (((ITV News))) etc in this rigged and unfair General Election of 2019.

DNe0-uXXcAAlTCh

Because the largest newspapers were more friendly to the Conservatives, when weighted by circulation, the final week of the 2019 election gave the Tories a positive score of 30.17 while Labour’s was minus 96.66 – a vast gulf in treatment.”

“All opposition parties were portrayed negatively, with only the ruling Tories portrayed in a positive light.” [The Independent]

Britain 2019 (and now, 2020 as well…)

A man waiting for triple bypass heart surgery has been declared fit to work by the Department of Work and Pensions – surviving on just £80 a week.

Konrad Zastawny, 55, from Sheffield, has coronary artery disease which leaves him short of breath on some days and unable to move on others.

Doctors have told him he is unfit to work until he has had the six hour operation – scheduled for next month – which will see surgeons move blood vessels from elsewhere in his body to his five blocked arteries.

However, the job centre said he does not qualify for disability support.” [Daily Mirror]

The two things that won the election for the Conservatives will be gone within months – Jeremy Corbyn and Brexit [John Rentoul, in The Independent]

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/boris-election-results-latest-labour-after-corbyn-brexit-a9256206.html

Rentoul left out the most important “winning factor” that the Conservative Party had in the recent contest, meaning voters aged over 70, almost all of whom voted, and voted Conservative. Many will not be there next time, while many new voters will be eligible and may vote. As I have blogged previously, only a quite small minority of voters under 40 vote Con and the Conservative Party cannot hope that the upcoming voters of 70+ years old will be another 90%-Conservative bloc.

Deadhead MPs, An Occasional Series: The Esther McVey Story

I was intending to write this examination of Esther McVey some months ago. Now here we are, almost in October, and the Conservative Party Conference is on. Looking at Twitter, I noticed some amusing things, one of which was the following tweet about thick-as-two-short-planks Esther, here seen both trying to orate and trying to seem as though her single brain cell is switched on:

Some of the msm and social media responses to Esther McVey’s latest idiocy have been hilarious:

Rather like those bumper stickers with their silly tasteless jokes, such as “Divers do it deeper”; or in this case, perhaps, “Conservatives do it on computers— in 3D!”

Perhaps rather too near the knuckle in view of the Conservative Party sex scandals of recent years:

“You don’t have to be Jewish!” (or a doormat like Crabb) though…

So, Esther McVey. What do we know about her?

This is the Wikipedia entry:

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

The bare bones are that Esther McVey has an LL.B. from one university, an MA from another, and a “corporate governance” M.Sc. from a third. I tend to think that people who have several degrees are either brilliant or are semi-idiots wanting to look good on paper, and usually the latter. I was once slightly acquainted with an African ex-High Commissioner who had degrees from Oxford, as well as either Yale or Harvard (I forget which) and the Sorbonne. A complete idiot…

Esther McVey is at time of writing a few days short of 52 years old. Her Wikipedia entry seems almost deliberately confused or misleading in part (which makes me wonder how much of it she edited personally).

Esther McVey seems to have graduated from the —at-the-time not very prestigious— Queen Mary College, East London in 1988 or 1989 (a decade or so later it became part of the University of London). Why she, from the Liverpool area, decided to study in an unfashionable part of London, I have no idea. It may be that she wanted to be in London and nowhere else offered her a place. Her degree was in law (level of degree awarded not known). She did not, however, continue either to the Bar or to the solicitors’ profession; neither did she seek or take any salaried appointment outside her family’s business (a demolition and site-clearance business in the Liverpool area). In fact, McVey was a director of the family business later, from 2000 to 2006, though her father has said that “she was there in name only”, which is a strange idea of the fiduciary and other duties of a company director. Perhaps she did not understand (that is rather a habit of hers). Still, there it is.

Though Esther McVey set up a couple of unsuccessful and/or publicly-funded small businesses (thus enabling her to claim on Wikipedia etc that she had been a “businesswoman” before becoming an MP), her main activity from 1991 and for much of the 1990s was being a TV presenter for both BBC and ITV, the high point being, apparently, co-presenting “GMTV” (ITV breakfast show) with that ignorant Irish slug Eamonn Holmes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eamonn_Holmes].

I have no idea how she got into that kind of work, though I notice that, at the time, her boyfriend was a TV producer. She has a Liverpudlian accent that seems, at times, impenetrable.

Esther Mcvey was elected as MP for Wirral West, a so-called “bellwether” seat, in 2010:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wirral_West_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections

The Liverpool Echo described McVey as the “most reviled MP on Merseyside”:

https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/record-shame-esther-mcvey-unpopular-16645987

Few will forget the infamous moment in 2013 when the then Wirral West MP said she thought it was ‘right’ and ‘positive’ that struggling people were turning to foodbanks because they could not afford to eat.

She told the House of Commons: “In the UK it is right that, you know, more people are visiting – which you’d expect – going to foodbanks.”” [Liverpool Echo]

Even the Jewish Zionist Liverpool Wavertree then-Labour MP, Luciana Berger, said that McVey’s response still “haunted” her: “It was disgraceful and showed absolutely no empathy – I was on the benches going ballistic.

McVey served in the Cameron–Clegg coalition as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Disabled People from 2012 to 2013, prior to being appointed Minister of State at the Department for Work and Pensions from 2013 to 2015. She was sworn of the Privy Council in February 2014, and attended cabinet as Minister of State for Employment in the 2014 British cabinet reshuffle.”

[Wikipedia]

McVey was removed as MP for Wirral West in 2015 by the electors, many of whom described her, perhaps understandably, as “McVile”. She was then handed a well-paid sinecure for 2 years by her cronies and their cronies, as Chair of the British Transport Police Authority [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Transport_Police_Authority], an organization and activity about which stupid McVey knew absolutely nothing (and probably still knows nothing). We talk about corruption in Africa or Asia, but what to make of an appointment like that?!

McVey was then, almost beyond belief, selected as Conservative candidate for the safe Conservative seat of Tatton, vacated by part-Jew ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne. She returned to Parliament in 2017.

She served in the Second May ministry as Deputy Chief Whip from 2017 to 2018. She was appointed Work and Pensions Secretary on 8 January 2018, but resigned on 15 November 2018 in opposition to the Brexit negotiations and the Brexit withdrawal agreement. In July 2018 it was reported by the head of the National Audit Office (NAO) that McVey had misled parliament over the new Universal Credit scheme by claiming that the NAO report showed that it should be rolled out faster when in fact the report concluded that the roll-out should be paused.[3] She apologised to the House of Commons on 4 July 2018[4][5] amid calls for her resignation.” [Wikipedia]

The bitch of course did not resign. Her type only understands brute force. People of her type have to be forced out of lucrative or careerist positions.

Incredibly, having been totally dishonest and incompetent as junior minister at the DWP (under part-Jap sadist Iain Dunce Duncan Smith), she was appointed by part-Jew Theresa May as Secretary of State in 2018. She later resigned over Brexit, but was re-appointed to Cabinet by Boris-Idiot in 2019.

In June 2019 she stood in the 2019 Conservative Party leadership election. She was eliminated in the first round after finishing in last place with nine votes.” Well, so that was how her fellow Conservative MPs rated her— only 9 votes out of 317

I detect three main strands in Esther McVey:

  • useless at her jobs (I cannot comment on her as a TV presenter, because I do not watch the kind of rubbish she presented);
  • lacking not only competence but any decent empathy or understanding;
  • a tendency to get personally involved with those working in the same organizations: when in TV, with at least one television producer; later, in politics, involved with the useless and lazy half-Jew “Conservative” MP, Ed Vaizey [formerly Con, now Independent, Wantage], who was made a minister and then —ludicrously— Secretary of State for Culture] [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Vaizey#Expense_claims]; now she is apparently engaged to another MP, Phillip Davies [Con, Shipley], in whom she apparently had “a long-term, on-off romantic interest” or vice-versa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Davies#Personal_life

McVey is also, I read, friendly with the McCann couple, whose little girl, notoriously, disappeared in mysterious circumstances in Portugal many years ago now.

McVey is a member of Conservative Friends of Israel.

Some tweets about Esther McVey

So there we are. Esther McVey. A major deadhead, who is in a very safe seat and therefore unlikely to be removed by the voters. She, in her very person, is an indictment of the political system that has sustained her for a decade.

Update, 16 February 2020

Well, credit where due. Boris-idiot (or his eminence grise, Dominic Cummings), decided to bin Esther McVey, whose last Government job was as Housing Minister, a non-Cabinet post, though she was, I read, invited to attend Cabinet. God knows why. Housing is vitally important at present, but that merely begs the question: why appoint a deadhead like McVey to that portfolio?

A few tweets seen:

Esther McVey was an example of a whole phenomenon which grew up since 1997: MPs lucky even to be MPs, and who became MPs because they were once on TV (eg Esther McVey, Gloria de Piero, Anna Soubry), or because they once wrote cheap novels (Louise Mensch— remember her, the drug abuser and “ho”?) etc, but who were unable even to function properly as MPs before being promoted, incredibly, to ministerial and even Cabinet positions.

Now? Well, deconstructing her CV, she has never had a real job (a real one, not the fake ones on her CV such as pretending to have been a director of her father’s demolition business, or a “businesswoman”); save for her TV presenter years. Hard to imagine anyone offering her a position (I mean a business one…). I therefore assume that she will stay on as MP in her safe seat of Tatton (rural Cheshire) indefinitely. She will of course never again hold Government office.

Deadhead MPs, An Occasional Series: The Therese Coffey Story

 

It will be noted that among the names on the above list is that of Therese Coffey MP [Con, Suffolk Coastal], recently appointed as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. The role has been held by deadheads before, idiots such as Iain Dunce Duncan Smith and Esther McVey.

So who is Therese Coffey?

Therese Coffey was born in Lancashire, to parents about whom neither Wikipedia nor her own website say anything at all. She was brought up in Liverpool, according to Wikipedia, which however says that she was at school both at St. Mary’s College, in the small North Wales town of Rhos-on-Sea, and at St. Edward’s College, Liverpool. Both were at the time private Roman Catholic schools. Coffey is a name of Irish origin.

Therese Coffey was awarded a B.A. degree by Oxford University (subject unknown), she having gone up to Somerville College; then (oddly, on the face of it) she acquired a Ph.D. in Chemistry from UCL. Therese Coffey is often referred to as “Dr” Therese Coffey.

[Update, 21 May 2020: since writing the above, I have discovered that, while Oxford’s usual Chemistry degree is a 4-year course leading to a Master’s degree (M.Chem), the University does offer other chemistry-related 3-year science degrees

http://admissions.chem.ox.ac.uk/Data/Sites/21/images/mchem-chemistry.pdf.

http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/courses/course-listing]

In England (though not in some other countries, notably Germany) it has always been considered infra dig to use the title “Doctor” unless one is either a medical doctor or some sort of working academic, scientist or clergyman. Unfortunately, there has fairly recently developed in the UK a strange affectation, of people insisting on referring to themselves as “Dr” when all they have is a doctorate in something (other than whatever they do professionally or whatever). So we have “Dr” Julian Lewis MP [Con, New Forest East], who holds a doctorate (D.Phil) in Strategic Studies. Another is “Dr” Louise Raw, “antifa” type prolific on Twitter, who holds a Ph.D. and whose special subject is one particular industrial strike in 1888. Now we also have “Dr” Therese Coffey.

Therese Coffey was awarded her doctorate in chemistry in 1998, at the age of 28. Her own website says that she was at one time a “management accountant”. She worked for Mars, the confectionery company, and for a subsidiary of the same, at which latter she was apparently Finance Director. She also did some work for the BBC. I think that we can assume that Therese Coffey’s non-political career was far from stellar.

Therese Coffey failed to become a Conservative MEP at the EU elections of both 2004 and 2009. She was, however, selected for the Conservative candidature at Suffolk Coastal (despite having been born and brought up in the North West of England, later living in Andover, Hampshire and having no obvious connection with Suffolk or East Anglia).

The expenses claimed by Therese Coffey in her first 6 months as MP were more than double those claimed by MPs in some other nearby seats. She seems to have kept her house and flat in Hampshire, which (it has been said of at least one) are being let.

Therese Coffey was one of the 72 MPs (almost all Conservatives) who both have an income of over £10,000 p.a. from rental property and voted out a bill requiring landlords to ensure that their properties were fit for human habitation! In other words, Therese Coffey is a parasite.

Therese Coffey voted to sell off woodland and forests in public ownership to private interests (the bill was dropped after a huge public outcry).

Therese Coffey has written a position paper recommending that pensioners pay National Insurance. She is a member of the extreme Free Enterprise Group within the Conservative Party.

Therese Coffey has been in favour of both Rupert Murdoch and gambling interests in the past.

Therese Coffey has from time to time bunged her own sister some money out of Parliamentary expenses for work (presumably) done.

Therese Coffey likes a “rock band” called Muse, it seems. I had never heard of them until now. Her interest in rock music seems bizarre, looking at her photographs and thinking of what can be gleaned of her personality (not very much). She certainly looks more like Patricia Routledge’s portrayal of the retirement-age Lancastrian private eye, Hetty Wainthropp, in Hetty Wainthropp Investigates. However, Ms. Coffey’s liking for real ale (she is a member of CAMRA) is rather plausible. In fact, Ms. Coffey is only 47 years old, surprisingly, she having been born in November 1971.

I would have assumed that Therese Coffey is a lesbian, looking at this tank-like, Guinness-drinking, cigar-smoking person who likes football, but there is nothing I have found on the Internet to support such a conclusion directly; and she voted against “gay marriage” (and in that alone I support her, inasmuch as I feel that “civil partnership” provided whatever socio-legal comfort was necessary to deal with the inadequacies of the English law as it was in the previous century).

What disturbs me most about Therese Coffey is not so much what she has said, written and done, though that is bad enough, but what I have not seen from her: I have seen no intellectual curiosity that goes outside the box, for example any discussion of the need for Basic Income; neither have I seen anything else of intellectual interest from her. Admittedly, I have only been looking since her elevation to Cabinet (she was only a non-Cabinet minister earlier in 2019, and before that only one of the Conservative whips, traditionally a role for plodders…). If my view changes, I shall update this article, being by nature fair and just.

Therese Coffey may be the Cabinet minister with the lowest public profile. She is unknown to the general public. How long she will remain in Cabinet, I have no idea. If Boris-Idiot falls, “not long” is my guess. It may be thought unfair to dub someone with qualifications in both chemistry and accountancy a “deadhead”, but from the socio-political point of view I think that she well merits it. At any rate, as MP she is not going away, in that Suffolk Coastal is one of the safest Conservative seats.

Update, 6 October 2020

The Boris Johnson Cabinet

I start this examination of the new Boris Johnson government by posting part of an interview with Nicholas Soames MP [Con, Mid Sussex] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Soames

I have, of course, blogged about Boris Johnson before:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/07/19/after-a-2019-general-election-what/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/07/06/the-conservatives-boris-johnson-upcoming-political-events-and-the-currents-in-society/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/06/12/boris-a-story-for-our-times/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/06/09/the-conservative-party-leadership-contenders-in-outline/

Any brief perusal of my above blogs about Boris Johnson will show that I am unremittingly hostile to him, despite the fact that I have always favoured Brexit (which he also now does, though only or mainly because it suits his narcissistic ambitions). What I want to do in this blog article is to examine those he has chosen to be in and around his Cabinet. I cannot examine every one for reasons of space and length, so I have chosen to focus on a few key players, as well as on the overall thrust of this new Cabinet.

Priti Patel

Thick as two short planks, Priti Patel is now a “British” Cabinet minister, having been saved from spending her life serving customers behind the counter of a Kampala grocery shop by her parents having immigrated to the UK, “several years” before Idi Amin became Ugandan leader in 1971.

Priti Patel is a member of Conservative Friends of Israel, and was exposed as being effectively an agent of Israel only 2 years ago. This daughter of Indian immigrants, this Israeli agent, this expenses-freeloader (she “employed” her husband part-time, on expenses, from 2014-2017) and supporter of harsh and cruel policies is now going to rule over British people as Home Secretary.

Hard to believe that an MP, let alone a Cabinet minister, could be as plainly thick as Priti Patel really is, but the fact that she is has been proven time and again. Example:

https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/24778/priti_patel/witham

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

Esther McVey

A few facts about Esther McVey in government:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/esther-mcvey-housing-minister-record-11831140

Now Minister of State for Housing, not normally a Cabinet post, but it seems that she is either being treated as a member of the Cabinet or is at least attending. It will be recalled that she was partly responsible for implementation of the ghastly “bedroom tax” created by [Conservative Friends of Israel] Iain Dunce Duncan Smith and jew “lord” Freud.

McVey is someone who was willing to accept and promote the attacks on the poor, disabled and unemployed (and the elderly) during her previous time in government. She is also a member of Conservative Friends of Israel. She is yet another one who is as thick as two short planks, her cartoon view of the world being expressed in a Liverpudlian accent almost impossible to understand.

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

Dominic Raab

Half-Jew, though supposedly not brought up culturally Jewish. Hard-faced careerist. As far as I know, another member of Conservative Friends of Israel. Has visited and worked in Israel/Palestine.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/who-dominic-raab-foreign-secretary-12882420

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

Sajid Javid

A Pakistani, though born in the UK. A very weird individual, who is obsessed by the Jewess known as “the philosopher of selfishness”, Ayn Rand:

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayn_Rand#Political_influence

Sajid Javid, a member of Conservative Friends of Israel, is so pro-Israel that he even spent his honeymoon there, despite he and his wife both being non-Jewish. As Home Secretary (2018-2019), he made the astonishing assertion that he supports the violent “antifa” thugs [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifa_(United_States)

and he has been seen at Scotland Yard events alongside Jewish Zionist “activists” such as Stephen Silverman of the malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA” cabal (Silverman being someone who has been exposed in open court as a serial troll and harasser, and who used pseudonyms to disguise his identity while doing that). Silverman and the CAA attempt to influence government and police policy in favour of Zionism and Israel, working with groups such as “UK Lawyers for Israel” etc, the memberships of which often overlap.

Javid, unsurprisingly in view of his background, thinks that mass immigration has benefited the UK!

Javid became a director of Deutsche Bank in 2000, leaving in 2009, by which time that bank had become one of the main “drivers” (causes) of the worldwide banking crisis:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsche_Bank#Financial_crisis_years_(2007%E2%80%932012)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sajid_Javid#Banking_career

This person, Sajid Javid, is now the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Cabinet minister in charge of government finances, tax, overall financial strategy etc. Very worrying…

CYHP3gvWYAArn3_

 

Grant Shapps

Jew and member of Conservative Friends of Israel. Exposed in 2012 as having used two pseudonyms in order to basically cheat members of the public by selling them dodgy business and self-improvement courses! He even got into the Palace of Westminster using those false IDs! In fact the Jew has a history of dodgy business dealings, tax dodging and cheating the public.

Now Shapps has been appointed to the Cabinet as Transport Secretary! You really could not make it up. Speaking of transport, when will my train arrive?

Hitlers-train-Amerika

This “government” is, in the immortal words of Johnny Mercer MP (applied to Theresa May’s tenure) a “shitshow”. In fact, if the Theresa May government was a “shitshow”, Boris-idiot’s one is going to be a total shitshow!

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grant_Shapps#Denials_of_pseudonym_and_second_job

Mark Spencer

Not a Cabinet minister, but the new Government Chief Whip, who attends Cabinet and is a key figure, especially in a government with no majority and even with Democratic Unionist Party [DUP] support only a majority of 3 or 4, which will probably soon be 1 or 2, depending on the result of the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election and whether Charlie Elphicke MP [Con, Dover] is allowed to remain on bail (and so vote in the Commons), having been charged with three sexual assaults against two women:

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/jul/22/tory-mp-charlie-elphicke-charged-with-sexual-assault

The Guardian journalist and Chief Political Correspondent, Jessica Elgot (a Jewish Zionist who, if memory serves, blocked me on Twitter before I was expelled), has penned this cheerful piece about Spencer:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jul/23/relative-unknown-mark-spencer-becomes-chief-whip

Jessica Elgot’s Guardian piece somehow neglects to mention that “Spencer attracted criticism in early 2015 after suggesting that a man with learning difficulties who had been left without food or power after being sanctioned for arriving four minutes late at the benefit office should “learn the discipline of timekeeping“” [Wikipedia]; or that

In January 2016, Spencer was one of 72 MPs who voted down an amendment in Parliament on rental homes being “fit for human habitation” who were themselves landlords who derived an income from a property.” [Wikipedia]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Spencer_(British_politician)#Controversies

In other words, Mark Spencer is a hard-faced bully type, as well as being a parasite landlord. What a horrible bastard.

I wonder whether new Chief Whip, Mark Spencer MP, is also a member of Conservative Friends of Israel? IMO, odds-on…

The immediate reaction about the new government from John Rentoul

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/boris-johnson-reshuffle-cabinet-patel-raab-general-election-a9019661.html

My View

This is a disaster of a Cabinet, a disaster of a government, led by a part-Jew public entertainer who probably should never have been even a backbench MP, certainly never have become even a junior minister, let alone a Cabinet minister. That such a person is now Prime Minister of the UK, and leader of one of the two main System parties, is an indictment of that same political system. The political and electoral systems are broken. The House of Commons is full of trash.

What else? Well, as we have seen, all those examined (including Boris-idiot) are Conservative Friends of Israel, with at least one (I think maybe three) being in effect Israeli agent(s) of influence (if not more). The same will be true of the rest of the Cabinet.

This is not only the most pro-Jewish Lobby, pro-Israel Cabinet ever, but the least truly British (in any real sense; yes, they have British passports; actually, some have or had others, like Boris-idiot, who actually was a US citizen with a US passport until quite recently!); Sajid Javid— Pakistani; Dominic Raab— part-Jew, Priti Patel— Indian.

Even The Times of Israel impliedly agrees!

https://www.timesofisrael.com/priti-patel-previously-ousted-over-israel-meetings-named-uk-home-secretary/

and the Jewish Chronicle!

https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/board-of-deputies-praises-firm-friends-on-boris-johnson-s-new-cabinet-1.486833

*and look at this:

Johnson’s maternal great-grandfather was a Russian Jewish immigrant named Elias Avery Lowe.” [Breaking Israel News]

““I feel Jewish when I feel the Jewish people are threatened or under attack, that’s when it sort of comes out. When I suddenly get a whiff of antisemitism, it’s then that you feel angry and protective.” [Boris Johnson]

In addition to his Jewish ancestry, Johnson has even stronger ties to Israel through his Jewish stepmother, Jennifer Kidd Johnson, who married his father Stanley in 1981. 

In 1984, Johnson, age 20, and his sister Rachel spent six weeks in Israel, volunteering on Kibbutz Kfar Hanasi, approximately 22 miles north of the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel. 

The visit was coordinated by Michael Comay, a career Israeli diplomat and close family friend of Johnson’s stepmother. Comay and his wife Joan connected the Johnson siblings with the overseas volunteer program at Kibbutz Kfar Hanassi.” [Breaking Israel News]

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/134041/new-uk-prime-minister-descended-from-rabbi-feels-jewish/

Several of those appointed to Cabinet, including Raab, Priti Patel and Liz Truss, were co-authors of the notorious booklet Britannia Unchained, their credo being unrestrained finance capitalism and the British people as slaves to usurers and employers:

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

Highlights?

  • “Britain needs to adopt a far-reaching form of free market economics, with fewer employment laws”;
  • “The British are among the worst idlers in the world. We work among the lowest hours, we retire early and our productivity is poor. Whereas Indian children aspire to be doctors or businessmen, the British are more interested in football and pop music.” [Wikipedia]

Well, I agree about the football and pop music etc, but the rest postulates as an ideal a dystopian economic slave-society (is that surprising, when you see that the booklet was written mostly by those from non-British, non-European backgrounds, societies where slavery and serfdom are still ubiquitous: India, Pakistan etc?)

What now?

So unfree is the UK already, that if I were to print what I really believe should be done to remove this government of evil, I should probably have the police at my door.

In terms of what might happen politically or electorally to remove this unelected System dictatorship led by Boris-idiot, it is a grace from God that its Commons majority is almost non-existent even with its bought (by Theresa May) DUP support. Soon it will have no majority in the Commons even with those bought DUP votes.

The Brexit dilemma is the first matter. It is suggested that Boris-idiot will try to leave the EU either without agreement with the EU, or with an agreement not much different than that Theresa May agreed, but which was rejected by the Commons. The probability must be that the same will happen again. If so, Johnson will before long face a no-confidence vote, which probably but not necessarily will lead to a general election. Johnson thinks that he can win such an election. Not if Brexit Party stands 650 candidates as promised. Brexit Party may sink the Conservative Party even if it itself fails to win a single seat.

On the other hand, if Boris Johnson makes an electoral pact with Nigel Farage, eg guaranteeing Brexit Party a free run in say 50 seats in return for the reverse in the remaining 600, that is a gamble which threatens to destroy the Conservative party as a main national party contesting all seats. It also risks creating a far more powerful because far more credible Brexit Party.

What if Johnson in effect caves in, accepting a poor “deal” with the EU (assuming that the Commons approve it)? That would be the end of Johnson as Prime Minister even if he were able to cling on for a while. At the next general election, he would probably lose his own seat, as would 100 or even 200 of his MPs.

What about other matters unconnected directly with Brexit? The Conservative majority is now effectively gone already, with quite a few anti-Boris MPs likely to abstain on critical votes. This “government” scarcely has the strength to be called “lame duck”.

It is worth noting that the Conservative Party has not managed to win a really substantial majority at a general election since the 1980s, though in 1992 and 2015 it had enough MPs to rule (leaving aside Brexit) without serious interruption (which is why Mrs May’s decision to hold a snap election in 2017 was such a great error).

In the end, Britain needs social nationalism. This weak and stupid government of aliens is the opposite, a would-be tyranny of non-Brits, non-Europeans, and pro-Israel dystopians. It is evil and must go.

and still the show goes on

Notes and updates

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7287171/The-gilded-life-Boris-Johnsons-new-team.html

Update, 27 July 2019

I was musing on exactly why Boris-idiot has appointed so many of what Ronnie Reagan might have described as “misfits, looney tunes and squalid criminals” to his Cabinet. Yes, they are mostly Leave supporters; yes, they are mostly those who supported Johnson in the Conservative Party leadership contest; but I think that there is another reason.

In my view, Boris-idiot was limited in his choice because so many potential ministers and Cabinet ministers simply would not and will not serve under Johnson. In fact many who served under Theresa May did not wait to see whether they might be reappointed or given other jobs. They ruled themselves out.

There are two or three aspects to this:

  • Many MPs and most former ministers despise Boris-idiot and simply cannot see him as a real Prime Minister of this country. They know that he was out of his depth as Foreign Secretary and that he is even more out of his depth as Prime Minister;
  • MPs mostly know very well that this government of crazies cannot last long, firstly because of its crazy and/or plain thick Cabinet ministers. When it falls, they do not want to be contaminated by association with it;
  • also, this government cannot last long because the Parliamentary arithmetic scarcely adds up even now. Once the Brecon and Radnorshire seat is lost (1 August 2019, this coming Thursday) and if Charlie Elphicke is convicted, later this year or early next year, of the sexual assault of two different women, the Government will have no majority at all, even with the DUP support bought by Theresa May. There is every chance that this government will be gone by Christmas. When that happens, the Conservative Party will probably either lose to Labour (i.e. get fewer seats), or at any rate get fewer seats than it now has. Either way, Boris will be gone as Prime Minister, his ignominious parody PM act having lasted only a few months.

Look at those who are now in Cabinet and in other ministerial posts! I have blogged already about some: Priti Patel as Home Secretary! This is a bad dream! Sajid Javid; Esther McVey!…; Grant Shapps…; Dominic Raab; Liz Truss (!); GAVIN WILLIAMSON…WHAT?!…the idiot who plays with his pet spider and wanted our troops to face the Russian Armed Forces with guns mounted on tractors or in the back of furniture lorries!…; even bloody Nadine Dorries is a minister of state now! Nadine Dorries, who was one of the biggest expenses freeloaders in the Commons, “employing” her recently-graduated daughters at the highest pay level permitted [in 2019, that level is £50,000 p.a.], and allowing one of them at least to occupy the taxpayer-funded flat in Central London meant to be for the MP’s own use, whereas Nadine Dorries actually commuted back daily to Bedfordshire (by rail, First Class, and of course again on expenses)! She also got all three (herself + 2 daughters) expensive new laptops and telephones etc on expenses! This is like a TV sketch writer’s joke!

I have little doubt that, just as his shambolic term as Mayor of London spawned the political comedy show The Thick of It, Boris Johnson’s term as Prime Minister will generate another political sit-com. The British people may not see the joke.

Well, enough for today, but anyone who saw Boris-idiot making promises of rail lines in Northern England when he was speaking in Manchester today saw a person well out of his depth, putting on a “prime ministerial” act and failing to raise to even a decent am-dram level. As a speaker, Johnson is poor (though his ad-lib humorous style might be OK for after-dinner speechifying). Content? Very poor. Delivery? Amateur and unconvincing.

Finally, one must ask why so many Conservative MPs voted for this clown to be their leader. I think that the answer is that most of the other candidates were also very poor, and even the few with potential to do the job of PM (leaving aside my firm ideological opposition to them) had impediments, such as that they were Remain supporters (eg Rory Stewart) or unconvincing recent Leave convertees (Jeremy Hunt and maybe Stewart), or with a negative public image (Michael Gove, a one-time cocaine abuser, as well as a flagrant expenses cheat in the 2005-2010 Parliament and possibly later).

The vote for Johnson, by most Conservative MPs, was a gamble, the gamble that the public entertainer and bullshitter can “reach the voters other MPs cannot reach”. I think that the Conservative Party is about to lose its shirt.

Update, 28 September 2019

Michael Gove, seen intoxicated through drink or drugs in the Chamber of the House of Commons recently! This is becoming just bizarre! (ignore the silly “Nazi newspapers” comment by the tweeter. “Nazi newspapers”? If only…!)

When Almost Everyone Says to a Government in Office, “Just GO!”

Background

Today I happened to see the Daily Mirror report (link below, at foot of post) about a 9-year-old girl who telephoned a charity begging for help, even offering to work, in order to save her family. This was not in some ragged part of the former Soviet Union, not in Latin America, not (to be rhetorical) in the Britain of the workhouse and Ebenezer Scrooge, but that of Britain in 2018.

The Conservative Party seems to be relying on effluxion of time to disguise what it (and to a lesser extent, Blair-Brown Labour) has done in the past 20 years and especially since 2010 when the Con Coalition took power. However, the fact is that millions of people have been degraded, insulted, even killed or forced to suicide by the hugely expensive and ill-conceived “welfare” “reforms” of Iain Dunce Duncan Smith. He and those guilty with him, have not as yet faced popular justice. Perhaps some form of justice will in the end catch up with him, and Esther McVey and Danny Alexander, and David Gauke, and the Jew “lord” Freud etc.

Then we have Brexit, which I (for social national revolutionary reasons) favour. The present government has proven itself incompetent in respect of that, too.

Armed forces: scarcely functioning, thousands of experienced officers and other ranks made redundant, so that, now that few want to join what was the TA (now, The Reserves), the government is forced to open Army recruitment widely to those from Commonwealth countries who may never even have visited the UK.

NHS: plainly in managed decline.

Immigration: scarcely slowing.

Housing: far too expensive and, in the private rented sector, the hunting ground of buy-to-let parasites.

A future for the young: where is it?

Wherever one looks, the present government has failed miserably, along with its predecessors of the past 8 years. Labour looks scarcely better, true, and has even decided to keep the pathetic Universal Credit scheme if elected, but in a general election, an incompetent government is still at a disadvantage vis a vis an incompetent Opposition.

Labour is no longer unelectable

It was said for years that “Labour is unelectable” under Corbyn, a strange statement in view of the fact that Brown and Miliband also both failed to make it electable. The idea seems to be that Labour has to appeal to the middle of the road floating voters to be electable, and that Corbyn does not appeal to that voter. I do not think that the misnamed “Conservatives” can rely on that. Many of the Corbyn-Labour policies do have Middle England appeal: strict rail regulation or even renationalization, strict controls on utility company bills, making large transnational enterprises pay decent tax. These and other policies speak to those forgotten Middle England voters. Labour has not quite thrown the poor under a bus, but its focus is certainly now on winning over the vital marginal seats. It has recently supported Phillip Hammond’s tax plans on the basis that Labour plans to hit the wealthiest 5% (in income terms) and not, say, the most affluent 10%, 20% or 50%.

The Conservatives have demonized the poor, especially but not only the non-working poor. The Con Party is now more than ever the party only of the wealthy few, the buy to let parasites, the Jews too (95% of whom have deserted Labour since Corbyn took over), the wealthy London foreign cosmopolitans of various types etc.

As to the traditional Conservative Party Middle England vote, that is ebbing away. The reasons are clear: the “middle classes”, at least at the lower end, are sinking, and the Government is letting them drown. A cartoon from a few years ago made the point.

On the above facts, it is more than likely that the Conservatives will not be the largest party after the next General Election. The Conservative vote shrinks with every passing month. There is a sense that, as with the 1990s Conservatives, the present Theresa May government has outstayed its welcome so that almost everyone is saying “GO!”.

The poorest 10% will mostly vote Labour anyway. The wealthiest 5% (and probably 15%) will mostly vote Conservative whatever. The bulk of workers in the middle are the battlefield, and one which Labour looks increasingly likely to win.

Use and Abuse of the UK Welfare State

I am in favour of the Welfare State, in principle, but that just begs the question. Even the Iain Dunce Duncan Smiths and Esther McVeys of this world go that far, at least in public utterances. The devil really is in the detail here.

The famous economist, Milton Friedman, once said that you can have open borders, and you can have a welfare state, but you cannot have both. That it is even necessary to posit that shows how far the more socialist-minded people in the UK (and elsewhere in Northern Europe) have travelled from reality. Many “refugees welcome” dimwits actually believe that an almost endless number of “refugees” or others can enter the UK without affecting State benefits and services (as well as road and rail congestion etc). This seems to be based on the idea that the immigrants will work, pay taxes, in short become normal citizens or quasi-citizens. Angela Merkel thought the same, only to find that most “refugees” were

  • incapable of any but the most basic work (such as fruit-picking) because of their linguistic and/or educational levels;
  • unwilling, in many cases, to work, in a situation where the State provides free accommodation, free utilities, free transport for some, free food for some, as well as pocket money on quite a generous level.

The UK does not provide social security (or, in our new Americanized speech, “welfare”) benefits on the generous scale offered by Germany or Scandinavia etc, but the fundamentals are similar.

A personal story: when I was much much younger, in my early twenties, I became acquainted, via a lady I then knew, with a friend of hers (more accurately a woman who had attached herself to her like a limpet). Now this other woman was not British in any sense except that she had married a New Zealander who had (presumably because taken there from the UK as a child) a British passport. The woman was in fact a Jewess from Moscow, who had somehow got to know the New Zealander while he was on a holiday trip to the Soviet Union. We need not examine motives and reasons, but that couple married and went to live in New Zealand. They had two children. After about four or five years, the woman left her husband, left New Zealand and flew to the UK.

When I met the woman in question, I believe that she had been in the UK for a couple of years. She washed-up in Downham, an obscure suburb in South-East London, where the local council provided her with a council flat. I have no exact idea of what other benefits she was granted, but they would have included child benefit and some form of income support. She never had to work, though at first she did a couple of evenings a week teaching Russian at some place or other which I forget (possibly Morley College in Westminster Bridge Road, or the City Literary Institute in Drury Lane, both of which adult education centres I myself frequented at the time).

Scroll on a few years. This “Russian” Jewish woman, with no real connection to the UK at all had been given a quite decent house with gardens in Grove Park, a better part of the same borough. She had been impelled to move, apparently, by a visit from her father, a nuclear scientist (which sounds impressive, but the Soviet Union had legions of them) who had told her that she would have a better flat were she to return to Moscow! Of course, there she would have had to work…anyway, I visited the new house once (out of duty rather than choice)  and so saw it, despite being not much liked by the woman. The woman had been diagnosed with a kidney complaint (though I never saw her looking unwell) and so no doubt managed to claim some form of incapacity or disability benefit; and had also acquired a car (almost certainly also funded by the State). In addition to all of that, the woman and her children also had all the usual UK benefits of free education and health. I do not think that she bothered to do much work after that, maybe a little part-time teaching or occasional low-level interpreting.

Now it might be said, perhaps especially by people more naturally drawn to socialism than capitalism, that she was entitled to these things because lawfully resident in the UK. Perhaps, but look at it from the wider point of view: she had never contributed anything to the UK, just taken. The small part-time jobs here and there can be discounted as having been de minimis. She leeched off the UK’s people since about 1979 and, the last I heard (a couple of years ago), that situation remained unchanged, probably to this day. In fact, she would now be “entitled” to a State pension and Pension Credit. Call it 40 years of being a millstone round the neck of the British Welfare State.

Now multiply the above by millions, the millions of often completely useless people from the backward hordes imported into the UK for decades. For example, it is reported that only 20% of the huge numbers of Somalis in the UK (how? why?) are employed at all.

I repeat, I do favour a decent Welfare State, but it can only exist if

a. the economy can support it;

b. it is not swamped.

The above two conditions really come down to the same thing now, or very nearly so.

For me, the answer to the work and income challenges of robotics, computerization, Internet shopping, AI etc is the Basic Income concept, but Basic Income, like the existing Welfare State, will decline and may fail unless it is restricted to those who are at the very least, genuine citizens.
