Flybe

Sad news, though not unexpected. I used to use Flybe sometimes, in those long ago days before 2010 when I actually used to go places…I have flown Flybe (or partner airlines) out of its Exeter base, as well as to/from Southampton, Brest (Finistere), Newcastle, Norwich, Doncaster, Manchester, as well as a few other destinations. Quite good. Hard to see how Southampton and Exeter airports will be able to continue if, as reported, Flybe provided up to 95% of the throughput (BBC says 90% for Southampton and 80% for Exeter). Journeys such as Exeter to Newcastle or Norwich are hell by car, even at 100+ mph. I think that the Newcastle route, taken a couple of times, took about 40 mins actually in the air. Pretty good. Car? About 5-6 hours, depending on M5/M6 (etc) traffic.

Bad news for those employed too, both at Flybe and in other connected or supplying organizations. It may be, acc. to reports, that BA, or the appalling (one hears) Ryanair, may take over some routes, so all may not be lost.

Coronavirus

So far, the public “panic” is muted in the UK. There is a groundswell of unease, though. Over the past 2 days, I have noticed that the (only) local supermarket, a Waitrose, has run out of (nearly £20 a jar) Mauka honey, the cheaper and larger-pack loo paper, antiseptic handwash etc. Also, far fewer than usual number of shoppers.

The response of Boris-idiot’s government to the “Corvid-19” situation has been feeble. As I noted here a few days ago, my Australian niece (early 20s) returned a week or so ago from the (in the event, largely-cancelled) Venice carnival to a Heathrow Airport sans any checks or questioning. When I visited Macau from Hong Kong in 2006, the bird flu was around and my almost deserted return hydrofoil docked in Hong Kong to a reception of white-garbed and masked medical personnel, who pointed a kind of thermometer gun as I and the few other passengers passed by. Notices warned that anyone could be taken into quarantine if their body temperature was “too high”. Alarming.

I have no confidence in the ability of the NHS to handle a large-scale epidemic. Its administration is not very efficient, the UK has fewer beds per 1,000 population than any other “advanced” state —far fewer than France, for example— and its staff and facilities have been hit by years of “austerity” cuts and government mismanagement.

For no particular reason, The Black Bear:

 

Despite being part-Scottish somewhere in the mists of time (from my surname, which is believed to be Franco-Scottish in origin…a former girlfriend once visited a chateau in Normandy owned since it was built, hundreds of years ago, by a Templar-connected family called de Millard), I have never actually visited Scotland. Maybe some day.

Badgers

At last some good news for our lovely badgers:

If any portion of this is because of the influence of Boris-idiot’s fiancee, then I salute her.

Badgerurban

For far too long, the organized farming lobby has had a disproportionate influence in Westminster. The only industry to be still subsidized to the hilt. Ecologically, generally very negative. I must blog about all that again soon.

Judicial leniency

The woman in the report below should have been imprisoned. Too many use the fact that they have popped out a couple of children as a reason for not getting a well-merited prison term, even in cases (as here) where the woman in question was cruel as well as neglectful.

Coronavirus and Boris-idiot

It becomes increasingly clear that (as I realized when the London riots broke out, years ago) Boris Johnson is no good in a crisis. In any crisis.

Why was the younger one “spared jail”? An airline captain on duty attacked, kicked, struck, blood drawn…What do you have to do in England today to be given a custodial sentence? (say something about the behaviour of Jews, probably…). As for the District Judge finding that the older woman was acting in “self-defence”, that is just a joke. Idiotic woman (I mean the “judge”). Finally, why are these semi-savages in the UK or any part of Europe?

Save the Children and Brendan Cox

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/save-the-children-sex-sexual-harassment-justin-forsyth-brendan-cox-a9376336.html

When I still had a Twitter account, I did a series of tweets re. “Save the Children” and also the fake charity called the “Jo Cox Foundation”. The former paid and still pays its top few people hundreds of thousands of pounds per year. No-oneexpects the heads of such a charity to work for nothing, but the largesse extended to the few at the top has a degree of obscenity about it, especially when contrasted with the TV ads showing starving children etc.

The sex pest and near (if not actual) rapist, Brendan Cox (husband of the assassinated virtue-signalling MP, Jo Cox), was paid, certainly by average standards, a huge salary and very generous expenses to be one of the main executives. That despite a very mediocre academic and work background.

He was finally brought down by sexual assault claims which, eventually, had to be admitted. I doubt whether his basic attitude has changed much. He now still is involved in some way with the Jo Cox “charity”.

I discovered, about 3 years ago, that the Jo Cox “charity” had officially-published aims and purposes which were ludicrously wide— they could mean almost anything, and —more significantly– purported to allow the “charity” to do anything, pretty much. I also discovered that the “Jo Cox Foundation” had never filed accounts. It has now, and its documents have been amended to fit within UK charities legislation:

The disgraced expenses cheat and former Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, is now “Chair” of “Jo Cox Foundation”, which apparently spent about £400,000 last year, despite having an income from donations and “trading” of only £300,000. I should get an accountant like that myself!

I have to say that the whole set-up seems very dodgy to me, even now. I do not think that the whole Jo Cox/Brendan Cox story has been uncovered; it certainly has not been told.

Flybe

I was sorry to hear that Flybe may shut down, though it seems that the government is trying to save it without supplying it with direct subsidy. I used to use Flybe sometimes, about 15 years ago when I was professionally based in Exeter (and living on the Cornwall-Devon border). It was useful for long cross-country journeys, such as Exeter-Norwich (no longer offered), Exeter-Newcastle etc. I also used their flights between Brest (Finistere) and the UK occasionally. I like small airports anyway. I tried the Newquay-Gatwick service once, which was also good, but in my case I was heading into London, so that meant a jam-packed train (Gatwick Express) as well, which took the gloss off the experience. Anyway, good luck Flybe…

Harry Dunn/Anne Sacoolas

I saw this:

https://news.sky.com/story/pm-chances-of-harry-dunns-alleged-killer-facing-extradition-very-low-11908260

So once again the “Special Relationship” proves to be worthless. It’s a one-way street. The UK has often extradited its own citizens to the USA because the USA has demanded that, yet when it comes to the UK wanting a US citizen, no way, Jose! Let’s get out of that one-way and exploitative treaty.

Robert Jenrick

I always thought that Robert Jenrick was a horrible little pissant, even when he was first trying to get elected in 2014. My instinct is rarely wrong. Once installed, in 2019, as Secretary of State for Housing, Local Government and Communities, he “demanded” that local authorities adopt the so-called “international definition” of “anti-Semitism” (in fact adopted by only about 30 out of nearly 200 states).

In July 2019, he said “I want tackling antisemitism and ensuring that the Jewish community feels protected and respected to be one of my priorities as secretary of state”… In September 2019, he said “I will use my position as Secretary of State to write to all universities and local authorities to insist that they adopt the IHRA definition at the earliest opportunity…and use it when considering matters such as disciplinary procedures. Failure to act in this regard is unacceptable.” [Wikipedia].

Jenrick is a member of the Parliamentary Conservative Friends of Israel [CFI] group.

Jenrick has said his connection to the Jewish community “forms a very important and integral part of my life.“” [Wikipedia]

I was until recently unaware that Jenrick’s wife is a Jewish corporate lawyer who was born in Israel. Their children are being brought up as Jews. Jenrick and his wife even celebrate Jewish holidays! In short, he is a complete doormat for “the lobby”.

Labour and the Jewish lobby

“They” are still pushing for charges to be made in relation to half a dozen now-expelled Labour Party members arrested in early/mid-2019. LBC’s (((political editor))) tweets:

There is a genuine atmosphere of the Stalinist purges about this, though being arrested and bailed in the UK is obviously not the same, in absolute terms, as arrested and taken to the Lubyanka or the Butyrka in 1930s Moscow. All the same, just look at that tweet (and the others in the same thread):

“Woman in her 70s arrested on March 21. Again, Section 19 Public Order Act, following warrant executed in Wandsworth, south-west London”. A woman “in her 70s“! Arrested for allegedly saying this or that about Jews!

The fact is that where this lobby exists in sufficient numbers, non-Jews have and can have no freedom. Look at the Alison Chabloz case. There is more to come out about that now, but she was persecuted and then prosecuted (initially privately, by the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, a malicious little cabal which has wormed its way into various police and political areas).

What did Alison Chabloz do? Sang some humorous songs, and if the Jews or others say that her songs are not funny (though I disagree), then what? Haul her before The Court of Unfunny Songs?

The freedoms that we used to take for granted (until the advent of Tony Blair but made even less free under David Cameron-Levita and Theresa May) are eroding fast. Repressive and badly-drafted laws such as Communications Act 2002, s.127 allow well-organized and (((funded))) lobby groups such as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” to manipulate tame police and sometimes CPS into interrogating (and even arresting, charging and prosecuting) anyone who criticizes Jewish behaviour or the farrago of (mostly) nonsense that is the “holocaust” narrative.

Labour leadership contest

Well, there it is. All five candidates have agreed that Labour must henceforth be under the thumb (or the heel) of the organized Jew-Zionist lobby. We can now bid goodbye to Labour except as (((controlled))) opposition to the (((occupied))) “Conservative” Party.

The best thing would be for Labour to be reduced to a useless powerless rump, a niche party for the blacks, browns, public service staff etc. A new party can emerge for those who agree with Jack London (Jack London, not Tom London): “I am a socialist, but a white man first.”

Corbyn at least represented something understandable. These others? Useless and craven.

Alison Chabloz

After her appearance in court on her appeal last Friday, which was adjourned until 25 June 2020, persecuted satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz must feel that the end is now in sight. Depending on what Crown disclosure is made, it is possible that her appeal will not be opposed. Later? Her persecutors may ultimately find themselves in trouble.

More about Harry and the Royal Mulatta

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7887613/Markle-vs-Markle-Meghans-father-set-star-witness-against-High-Court-showdown.html

Good grief! Harry really has, in the American vernacular, become a total cuck! I predicted quite a while ago that he was in danger of becoming that stock figure of American sitcom-land, the husband driven to distraction by the incessant demands of his petulant young wife. Royal “Married with Children“, if you like. Except that, in this case, the wife is 4 years older than her husband, is nearly 40, and was previously married to a Jew businessman in Southern California.

What a s***show this whole thing has become!
