Diary Blog, 19 December 2020, including thoughts about social-national politics

Direction of travel of the social-national movement

The first thing to recognize is that there is no “social-national movement” in the UK. The modest successes of, mainly, the BNP, 1997-2010, could be described as interesting rather than enthralling; the BNP’s complete collapse in 2010, though ongoing to 2015, was neither enthralling nor even interesting.

I do not include the “controlled opposition” of Farage, his UKIP and Brexit Party vehicles etc (which are scarcely “national”, let alone “social national”); neither do I include the “alt-Right” wastes of space: “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad” (Carl Benjamin), “Count Dankula” and others. Not worth bothering about. Most of them are vocally pro-Jew and pro-Israel too (either to buy credit from them and so avoid damage to their apparently lucrative online activities, or out of actual adherence).

Apart from the above, what we have now amounts to little more than various individuals posting tweets, youtube vlogs etc online.

Thus the “antifascist” (mostly Jew or Jew-controlled) element can easily “take down” the aforesaid wastes of space, and (connected) types such as Katie Hopkins, and even Tommy Robinson (the only one of them with anything like a real offline following), simply by “taking down” their Internet service. These people (except, arguably, Tommy Robinson) are dependent entirely on their websites, blogs, vlogs and including online sales, for income.

Offline? Patriotic Alternative are slightly interesting, and I think that they are at least somewhat on the right track. The other little “movements” and “parties” are a waste of time and space. I have blogged about them previously here and there. If you use the search bar on this blog, you will find my comments about them made from time to time.

Anything or anyone else? Well, ex-BNP leader Nick Griffin is or seems to be partly on the right sort of track too, though I was forced to write critically recently about his support for Jayda Fransen and her “British Freedom Party”. His support for that frankly puzzles me.

There is space and indeed a necessity for a credible movement, which would include a political party, but one does not as yet exist. That movement would also include a gradual relocation by many to a few parts of the UK where forces can be concentrated. My views on this have frequently been blogged, and can be found below.

I have listened to the views of those who say that concentrating forces in such a way is a strategy of “running away”, and that we should “stand and fight”. Well, I would answer that by saying that

  1. There is a difference between strategic withdrawal and “running away”;
  2. One cannot “stand and fight” with no weapons and, even more importantly, no army!;
  3. The English cities are becoming majority non-white; yes only gradually, but surely all the same; by 2040, maybe even 2030, the UK cities and large towns will be basically non-white, and already show clear signs of that;
  4. Such a concentration of forces does not preclude activity in the main urban areas.

The next step must be to establish a tightly-controlled political movement, even if small. However, it must be credible and solid right from the start.

Can that be true?! Could be a game-changer if it is. Imagine if Blair actually took over Labour again…he is completely controlled NWO/ZOG. Just in time for the next crucial year in the 33-year cycle— 2022.

Britain is riddled with enemies and traitors; they have to be rooted out.

A very significant graph.

Hello?! Is anyone in? Has anyone out there heard of “The Great Reset”? Has anyone heard of “The Great Replacement”? What about the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan? Or NWO? or ZOG?

This is not confined to the UK. It is a global “consensus” or conspiracy…

Boris-idiot speaks…

Just listening to the clown presently posing as Prime Minister. Describing the latest illegitimate restrictions on the population. So some people, in some areas, are now to be actually prohibited from travelling overseas “except for work”. So that gives the wealthy business or parasite element a good get-out (as in “I have a business meeting in Marbella or Eilat, and will be using a private charter aircraft…).

In addition, Christmas and the New Year are now cancelled. “The Great Reset”…

From where does the (alleged) “new variant” of “the virus” come? China? Some secret laboratory? Was the existing virus strain designed that way, i.e. to mutate? Or is it a purely natural mutation, like strains of influenza? We do not know.

The bottom line is that the UK economy is going to tank. Still, “always look on the bright side of life”, and this could be the impetus, in 2021, for the formation of a real, and credible, social-national party.

Damn. For the first time since I started looking at these quiz questions on Saturday, John Rentoul beat me, having apparently scored 5/10, whereas I scored only 3/10 this week (though had I thought for a moment I would have scored a few extra…); my worst-ever score…I had no idea at all about questions 2, 6, and 7.

That alone will certainly not be enough, though it is good an sich.

Still think that those of us who have been talking about an upcoming private-public UK police state are wrong?

As I predicted some time ago, Sturgeon is using “the virus” to do “pretend-Independence” things. Closing borders unilaterally is the prerogative of a state, not a mere part of a state.

So? If the “Conservative” label fails and is voted out, the “Labour” label, equally (((controlled))) gets voted in, and very little changes…

Are we supposed to believe that that clown, “Boris”, is actually “in charge”? He is merely the puppet of powerful hidden forces.

Conspiracy theory

The very latest conspiracy theory— just made up…by me. The mutating virus was planned in advance (and/or new mutations are deliberately released) with aim of reducing world population drastically. Maybe newer and newer mutations will “emerge”, each succeeding one more lethal than those before it (the first one was/is not so lethal, having —supposedly— killed 1 in 1,400 people in the UK).

Well, the above is just a speculation and may not be so…

Labour Is The Party of…? Labour Is The Party For…?

The most recent opinion polls [see below] must make sobering reading for Keir Starmer and his colleagues.

Now, we all know how flawed opinion polls are, how they only broadly reflect public opinion, how they cannot be exactly aligned to the likely outcome of British general elections because of the First Past The Post [FPTP] elctoral system and because of the way that boundaries are drawn:

c64bh5xw0aiwygy

Yes, all that is true. However, no party supported by 1% of the electorate in an  opinion poll has ever gone on to get 50% of the popular vote; likewise, no party has ever been valued at 50% of the popular vote, but then crashed to 1% at election time. A leas, as ar as I know. The opinion polls are not that inaccurate. I suppose that the nearest to such a situation was in 2019, when, at one point, Brexit Party was estimated to have a popular support in the region of 25%, but crashed to 2% in the actual election.

Having said the above, the 25%+ scored in the opinion polls by Brexit Party was well ahead of the actual election result. The polls taken nearer to polling day were fairly accurate, all putting Farage’s instant “party” at under 5%.

In other words, looking at the most recent opinion polls, Labour is now in really serious trouble. Some of the Jews who wanted rid of Corbyn are now half-heartedly praising Keir Starmer, as are msm scribblers, saying that there is now a real Opposition (etc). Well, Keir Starmer is married to a Jewish woman, and his children are being brought up in a Jewish milieu. The “support” for Starmer from “them” is therefore unsurprising.

To continue the theme, we all know that “a week is a long time in British politics”, as Harold Wilson said in the 1960s. All one can say is that, at present, in May 2020, Labour is on the ropes. Somewhere around 30% to 33%. Its 2019 General Election result was 32.1% of the popular vote. My conclusion? Getting rid of Corbyn has not helped Labour as a party at all. Not that the Jews as a group care. They, as a group, vote “Conservative” anyway. Only about 5% of Jews vote Labour these days. Their only interest is that Corbyn has gone and that, along with that, the Jewish-Zionist element has regained control of Labour.

Clinton once said that he could (and did) reduce “welfare” benefits to the bare bones because the poorer part of American society will still vote Democrat. As he said, “where else will they go?“. Until they did (go). First to the Republicans under George W. Bush, then to Obama, the, er, Great White Hope (or whatever), and then, in desperation, to Donald Trump (under Republican banner).

Look at the UK. NWO/ZOG political superstar Tony Blair and his advisers said, of what some call the UK “white working class”, “where can they go?“. Well, now we know (so far). The Scots working classes left first, favouring the faux-“nationalist” SNP.

Back in 1997, Scottish Labour held or won 56 out of the then 72 Scottish seats at Westminster. Vote-share 45.6%. Since the 2019 General Election, Scottish Labour has had 1 seat at Westminster (out of 59) on a vote-share of 18.6%. For the first time since 1918, Scottish Labour is only the 4th party in Scotland, in terms of seats. 1959-2015, it was always the 1st party. It slipped to 2nd in 2015, 3rd in 2017 and 4th in 2019.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Labour#UK_general_elections

True, Scottish Labour still received a vote-share of 18.6% in 2019, but that counts for little in FPTP voting. That share was, in any case, the lowest Labour vote in Scotland since 1910.

The SNP supremacy since 2015 means that Labour, as a UK national party, has effectively no chance of a majority at Westminster, and that the best it can hope for is an arrangement with the SNP, which after all, is a kind of social-democratic party. That’s assuming that Labour in England and in Wales can improve its position. Any such uplift in Labour fortunes is very doubtful.

In 2019, as I predicted, former Labour voters voted with their feet. Look at the very cleverly-conceived graphic below:

GeneralElection2019

As can be seen, almost as many former Labour voters abstained as voted for all the other parties put together.

The anti-Corbyn element in Labour and the msm (basically a Jewish claque) said that Corbyn was the reason voters were unwilling to vote Labour. That was partly true, though mainly because the Judenpresse had been hitting at him for 4 years. There were other factors, some connected with Corbyn, some not.

The deadhead MPs in Labour were (and remain) part of the problem: Diane Abbott, Fiona Onasanya (now an “unperson”, expelled from Labour and imprisoned), Kate Osamor, Dawn Butler etc. I blogged about a few of them:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/21/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-fiona-onasanya-story/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/02/troop-cartload-barrel-or-family/

That black/brown group was very much tied-in with Corbyn who, notoriously, had had, as a young man, a fling with Diane Abbott:

DLoVt8oXUAA5KMb

As a matter of fact, the Labour performance under Corbyn, in popular-vote terms, was better than under both Miliband and Brown. The seats gained or retained by Labour in 2019 were far fewer, though; in 2017, Corbyn did better than his two predecessors in terms of seats too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labour_Party_(UK)#UK_general_elections

Under Keir Starmer, the Shadow Cabinet is full of Labour Friends of Israel members, Corbyn and his cronies have gone and Labour is now rising in the polls and looking more credible every day that passes. Oh, no…wait. Belay the last couple of points…

In fact, Labour is in every way stagnant. Stagnant in the polls. Almost invisible in the news. Supporting pretty much everything the Boris-idiot “Conservative” joke-government is doing re. Coronavirus, and only mildly criticizing bits and pieces. Pathetic.

The problem Labour has is firstly ideological, in that socialism in the old sense died in and around 1989. In the early 1990s, Labour finally admitted to itself that it had stopped being “socialist”. It became “social-democratic” and then, under Blair, outright finance-capitalist with “socialist” and “social-democratic” fig leaves.

Now, Labour is just a label, which loudmouth Friends of Israel MP, Jess Phillips, said (with her customary grace) is “just a f****** rose

VOTE LABOUR - ROSE FLAG 25mm 1" Pin Badge SUPPORT JEREMY CORBYN ...

What does a symbol mean? If nothing, then the party whose symbol it is, is nothing.

We have seen that the Scottish “working classes” etc have largely deserted Labour. In fact, now that Corbyn is gone, it may be that Labour’s 18.6% vote in 2019 will become closer to 10% or lower whenever the next general election is held.

We have also seen that the English “working classes” have been deserting Labour. That is especially the case in the North and Midlands, the so-called “red wall” of the past. The scandal of the Muslim Pakistani rape gangs killed Labour for many, as Labour’s Common Purpose placemen and women in politics, local government, the police and (inevitably) social services ignored the widespread abuse of white English girls by (mainly) Pakistanis.

Likewise on the wider immigration point. The “Conservatives” have been hopeless on mass immigration (aka “migration-invasion”) and basically just “talk a good game”, but Labour actually and deliberately encouraged the migration invasion, in order to destroy Britain’s race and culture. That fact was leaked by Labour insiders. The Jews Phil Woolas and Barbara Roche were behind much of it. They became so toxic that neither was able to find other seats for which to stand.

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

The cartoonists picked up on it, both at the time and then later, when Corbyn was leader:

The UK electoral system, as it applies in England at least, is binary. At present, the two parties supposedly opposed to each other are not in equal positions. The Conservative Party, having fluked a large majority, is in government for the moment, and probably until 2024, certainly until 2022. The Labour Party has become a total irrelevance.

As I have previously blogged (and, before the Jews had me expelled from Twitter, tweeted), Labour is now the party of the public service employees, of the blacks and other ethnic minorities (except the Jews) and of the mostly urban, maybe young or young-ish supporters of failed “multiculturalism” and pseudo-socialism. About 25% of the population. There are some old Labour loyalists around, too. In toto, maybe 30% of the population. Which is where Labour is in the polls. I cannot see Labour getting much beyond that now. Keir Starmer may be without scandal (as far as we know) but he is as dull as ditchwater. New ideas for society? None.

When you take away old-style socialism, when the old Labour communities in the industrial heartland of England no longer exist, when Labour no longer represents Britain’s history, race and culture, what is left? Nothing.

The same or similar, mutatis mutandis, could be said about the Conservative Party, up to a point, but the misnamed “Conservatives” still have a southern England voting bloc which, though ageing and fraying, is still there.

To return to those words of Clinton and Blair, “where will they go?”. Well, not to Labour (from other parties). To apathy, but only so long as doing nothing is less painful than doing something.

Labour’s slow death has left the Conservative Party in the ascendant. When that star starts to fall, Labour will not benefit. A new party might.

Diary Blog 24 December 2019

Why did 2017 Labour voters not vote Labour in 2019?

Presumably, “anti-Semitism” counts as “extremism” in the minds of YouGov (God knows why; to me it just seems to be a commonsense attitude of self-defence!). “Extremism”…only 3% thought that that was a reason not to vote Labour.

What does “leadership” mean in this context? Corbyn only (demonized by the msm for over 4 years)? Diane Abbott?

Half or just over half the voters have heard of the names of three of the Labour leadership contenders, the remaining six contenders (more may enter the lists later) being unknown to the majority of voters. Even uncultured loudmouth Jess Phillips is only known by name to 42% of the electorate. She will be mortified.

As to who voters would like as Labour leader, Keir Starmer leads the pack, but only on 9%, just ahead of Jess Phillips on 8%…

Next General Election?

The trend is towards greater volatility. The new Conservative Party MPs from the North and Midlands may disappear if either radical Labour or a new party can capture the voters’ newly-fickle allegiance.

Many of the new Conservative seats are held with small majorities. Not all. The main point anyway is not the size of the majority or the swing, but the volatility. Labour had held some of those seats since they were established, in some cases a century ago.

What has happened is that the deep-seated loyalty of many former industrial areas to Labour has been eroding for a number of years (for 30 years, arguably). That allegiance has not been replaced by a similar loyalty to the Conservative Party. It has been replaced by an angry volatility.

The allegiance of the long-held Conservative areas in the South of England and elsewhere (East Anglia etc) is of a different nature, based largely around self-interest, though habit also plays a part. Low taxes (income taxes, inheritance tax, taxes on capital gains, council tax etc), and a lazy reluctance to spend much (or any) time on ideology.

In the Northern and some other formerly industrial areas, it was different. Heavy industry, socialism or at least social-democracy, areas with a high level of community on the basis of class solidarity. That whole ambience has been eroding for decades and that erosion has now affected the political sphere in a noticeable way.

That Labour ambience has not been replaced by a Conservative equivalent, just as the heavy industry of the past has not been replaced by anything solid or secure. There is, in short, a vacuum. The Conservatives rushed into that vacuum because they were, indeed are, the only game in town beyond Labour. The other two possibilities, Liberal Democrat and Brexit Party were perceived as small (and so possible wasted votes), but also as adjuncts of the Conservatives.

The LibDems were mortally wounded by having not only concluded alliance with the Conservatives in 2010, but also by the way in which the LibDems behaved during the years 2010-2015, the years of the Con Coalition. There was a certain “f***-you” arrogance about the LibDem ministers of those years, horrible little blots such as Danny Alexander and, of course, Nick Clegg himself. At times, they seemed to be worse than even the Conservatives.

Jo Swinson voted for all of the terrible measures the Conservative Party brought in, from bedroom tax to the hounding of the sick and disabled. Well, the bitch has learned now that the voters were not asleep after all. And all Swinson’s weaselling about that, and all her doormatting for the Jews, could not save her (she lost her own seat) or her party. In fact, Boris-idiot’s then elevation of Jo Swinson to instant “baroness” may just have finally attached to the LibDems the chains that will sink them and send that party to the bottom. The voters are disgusted by Jo Swinson.

As for Brexit Party, its standing down of candidates in seats held by the Conservatives showed to voters in Labour-held seats that Brexit Party was/is a pro-Conservative fake party controlled by a devious con-man.

The result? Not a Conservative triumph so much as a Labour rout, but the result is similar.

A new party could capture a huge number of votes in the right circumstances, now that vast areas of the country are politically-volatile. Not only those voters who voted, but also the third of voters so disengaged that they did not vote, despite being registered to vote.

Amusing tweets seen re. Boris-idiot:

I have for some years made the point that Boris-idiot has managed to fool many people (including many who should have known better) that he is some kind of great brain, based on his ability to speak a few lines of rote-learned Latin or Greek, together with a few long and never-seen words trawled from the Oxford English Dictionary.

Those “talents” do not in themselves show great intelligence. I myself can still recall and speak a few chunks of A Month in the Country [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Month_in_the_Country_(play)] in the original Russian, learned in the early 1980s along with The Cherry Orchard and other works from the (mostly) 19thC Russian canon. In fact, I would put myself up against Boris-idiot in any activity or sphere (except rugby and degeneracy) with the full expectation of defeating him.

Diary Blog, 19 December 2019

First, some music:

The General Election continues to supply interesting facts.

The “experts” are still working on General Election 2019 statistics. One that I saw today was that, because Brexit Party was standing in Labour-held seats, the Conservative Party was deprived of another 20 seats.

I have already blogged about how Labour got (in rough figures) about 37% of the vote in Hartlepool (its lowest-ever share), while Brexit Party got about 25% and the Cons 28%. Had Brexit Party not stood, the Cons would have won Hartlepool! The same is true the other way round too, of course. In fact, I wonder whether Brexit Party might not have won Hartlepool anyway had Farage not stood down his candidates in Conservative-held seats. His action in doing that destroyed Brexit Party’s credibility and totally exposed it as a fake and as basically a shield for the Con Party.

The other piece of election-related news I saw was that, if the proposed boundary changes go ahead, as well as the reduction of MP numbers to 600, the Conservative Party would have a majority of 104 on the GE 2019 voting figures. The Cons would have fewer seats, 352, than the 365 they now have, but Labour would have only 179 compared to the present 208. SNP would have almost the same number as at present (47), maybe minus one or two. The LibDems would have 7 MPs instead of 11.

I do not know how the absence of Brexit Party (which must surely just fold soon) would affect those figures. If it meant that the Cons would get 20 or even 10 seats more, then that would give the Cons an unassailable advantage, about 360 or 370 seats out of 600. With Labour on maybe 169 or even 159 out of 600, the changes would reduce Labour to near irrelevance and the LibDems to near-zero.

It occurred to me that, in the (admittedly very unlikely) contingency that Scotland became “independent” (of the UK, though not from the EU, IMF, NATO etc…that’s another story), its (presently) 59 (or reduced figure) MPs would be removed, leaving the Westminster Parliament with about 540. That would, notionally, entrench Conservative rule in England and Wales even more. Without the SNP, Labour would be a small niche party with no possibility even of minority government.

but…

We have seen (noted in previous blogs) that relatively few young people voted Conservative at GE 2019:

  • 18-24s only 23% (Labour 56%)
  • 25-29s 23% (Labour 54%)
  • 30-39s 30% (Labour 46%).
  • Only the over-40s gave Conservative a plurality of votes (41%, with Labour on 35%)
  • and only the over-60s and over-70s gave the Cons a majority (57% and 67% as against Labour’s 22% and 14%).
  • LibDem support was consistent at all ages at 11%-12% (with a slight increase among 30-y-o people: 14%).

https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2019/12/17/how-britain-voted-2019-general-election

If you were to take out the over-70s and introduce a notional new 18-24 wave, that would change the overall picture entirely. The Conservative majority might well disappear, perhaps to be replaced by a Labour majority.

If only life were that simple!

The bias of Radio 4 Today Programme

I rarely listen to the Today Programme for more than a few minutes these days. It was never much to my taste, but now it is basically a Jewish-lobby-oriented multikulti-favouring, finance-capitalist-favouring propaganda outlet.

When Justin Webb (one of the presenters) finished his time in the USA and joined the Today Programme, he was asked about the difference between the UK and USA. His answer? (and remember this was after eight years in the US)…He told the old old apocryphal story about how, in each country, a poor man sees a rich man driving a Rolls-Royce or Cadillac. In the UK, the poor man says “I have nothing; he has too much” but in the USA, the poor man says “I have nothing, but one day I too shall have such a car“…

Is that the sort of  “insight” we get when drones such as Justin Webb get paid £200,000-£300,000 a year out of the BBC’s “licence fees” (a tax imposed on the viewing public, on pain of imprisonment if unpaid)? Sadly, yes, that is exactly the sort of “insight” that those on the Today Programme provide…

Another aspect of the Today Programme is the religio-philosophical platitude-slot, sub nom “Thought For The Day“. About one day out of five, a Jew (usually some “rabbi”) does it. It seems to be about 1 out of 5 (20%), it may be (but no, I think not) as infrequently as 1 out of 10 (10%). Yet Jews in the UK number 250,000-300,000, so perhaps about 1 out of 280 (perhaps fewer), which is a fraction of one percent; in rough figures about 0.25%. Look at the disproportion. 1 out of about 280 of the whole population, but 1 out of 5 or so on Thought For The Day!

Here’s a “Thought For The Day”

There must be a curb (i.e. a tax) on the huge concentrations of economic power (capital wealth) in the hands of so very few. That applies to the USA, the UK, Russia and elsewhere.

Stray read

Saw this. Worth a look.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/dec/19/i-didnt-buy-any-food-for-a-year-and-im-healthier-than-ive-ever-been

Probably a great deal easier in the Floridian climate than it would be in Northern Europe, though.

A few more thoughts about Labour

I read this:

and this:

As I have been saying for several years in blogs and (before the Jews had me expelled from Twitter) in tweets, Labour declined parallel to the decline of the society and conditions and people that created and sustained it.

Lisa Nandy

Just read her recent tweets. The odd spelling mistake. As to content, not an airhead, neither in the obvious Jess Phillips way, nor in the less obvious Caroline Flint way.

I of course disagree with quite a lot of what Lisa Nandy says, eg re. “refugees” and other migrant-invaders, but she seems politically-effective. Obviously a System politician but of a higher calibre than the average MP (including most of Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet).

Stray thought

Mao said that the guerrilla was like a fish, swimming in the water (the people). Looking at tweets from the most fervent Corbyn supporters, there is plenty of water but (so far) no fish.

Labour’s problem

Labour’s problem is that the more “socialist” leaders of recent decades (Corbyn, Miliband, Kinnock) failed to “win” elections under the existing electoral system and so some Labour people say “return to good old Tony” because Blair won three successive elections. However, what really happened was that Blair-Labour won in 1997 against a tired fag-end of a Conservative government, after 18 years of Con government, but then struggled to win in 2001 and 2005.

The figures:

  • 1997: 43.2%, 419 seats; Blair
  • 2001: 40.7%, 413 seats; Blair
  • 2005: 35.3%, 356 seats; Blair
  • 2010: 29.1%, 258 seats; Brown
  • 2015: 30.5%, 232 seats; Miliband
  • 2017: 40.0%, 262 seats; Corbyn
  • 2019: 32.2%, 202 seats; Corbyn

The anomalies caused by Britain’s crazy FPTP voting system and the carefully-“managed” boundaries account for some inconsistencies; also, the total number of MPs in Parliament has varied from 646 to 659 even in the past 25 years.

You can see from the above timeline that, in the sense of national vote-percentage, Corbyn in 2017 did about as well as Blair did in 2001, nearly as well as Blair did in 1997 (!) and far better than Blair and Labour did in 2005. Corbyn also, both in 2017 and 2019, did as well as or better than both Brown and Miliband did in 2010 and 2015.

In 2019, Corbyn-Labour slumped, but still got 32.2% of the national vote, which was as good in rough figures as Miliband in 2015, and better than Brown in 2010. In fact, it was only 3 points off Blair’s 2005 performance.

The national vote percentage of Labour declined steadily from 1997 right through to Corbyn’s leadership! The 2010 and 2015 results were similar in terms of percentage. Corbyn did better than his two most recent predecessors and almost as well as Blair!

I say the above not to praise Corbyn, but to bury Labour. It can be seen that both the Tony Blair 43.2% in 1997 and the Corbyn 40% in 2015 were anomalous in a picture otherwise of decline, or at best stagnation, that started around 1970.

My main point in practical terms is that returning to some mythical “Centrism” will not help Labour. “Centrism” seems to be somewhere between “Con-lite” and social democracy; pro Israel; anti-socialist; anti-national; globalist. Finance capitalism but with some crumbs thrown to the pigeons. You have seen what has happened to the LibDems who espouse similar ideas. Smashed. 11 MPs, which will, after boundary changes and another election, probably be 3 or 4. Or none.

Of course, Labour’s poor recent performance was to a large extent the result of truly relentless Jew-Zionist propaganda since 2015 and especially since the 2017 result (which showed that Labour might actually be able to win a majority or at least become the largest party in the Commons). Labour, especially Corbyn, has been trashed daily in the msm as well as on social media. That was not the only factor, but it was very significant.

The idea that Labour will suddenly become “electable” if it bows the knee to the Jews and abandons any “socialist” ideas is ridiculous. In fact, Corbyn and McDonnell should have stopped parrotting the Zionist “holocaust” nonsense (and stopped recounting 1930s Communist/Jewish propaganda around “Cable Street” etc as well); they should have fought back. Idiots.

Corbyn supporters write

“Cosmic Landmine” used to follow my Twitter account (before the Jews had me expelled). Good to see that he is still trucking.

Below, a despairing Labour supporter tweets…

Perhaps that tweet should read “Why is Jess Phillips, who always doormats for the Jew-Zionists, is a member of Labour Friends of Israel, parrots “holocaust” propaganda, and who trashed her own party and leader during the recent General Election campaign, getting so much airtime?“…

Look at this Daily Mirror article by a former Labour adviser. Not a word about suffering British people: unemployed, poor, disabled, sick, young people without hope of their own homes or even decently-paid work, just two or three paragraphs about Jews Jews Jews. Typical. System-Labour:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/i-ran-jeremy-corbyns-leadership-21103136

It’s rubbish. That’s machine-“Labour”, Mirror “Labour”, Kevin Maguire tribal “Labour”. Failed Labour.

…and here is Matthew d’Ancona, another System mouthpiece and Conservative Party partisan, pushing bad joke MP Jess Phillips for Labour leader:

https://www.standard.co.uk/comment/comment/talented-strong-and-relatable-jess-phillips-is-labour-s-best-asset-a4316766.html

Mary Creagh

Seems that Mary Creagh cannot quite bring herself to accept that her well-paid position, with its decent salary, very generous expenses and plenty of opportunity for both “donations” from here and there and also outside income possibilities such as “consultancies”, has been taken away by the voters of Wakefield. She still calls herself “MP” on Twitter. As rather sarcastic people tend to say on Twitter, “bless”.

Mary Creagh is a member of Labour Friends of Israel, and a frequent and fervent critic of “anti-Semitism”. All the same, the Jewish lobby could not save her and she will not be an MP again. I expect that “they” —you know, (((they)))— will find her “a nice little earner”, but her eviction from Westminster must give those “Friends of Israel” still in Parliament pause, nicht wahr?

Note the final sentence at the foot of that Independent profile of Wakefield, Yorkshire, a few weeks before the General Election: “Personally,” he says, “I think a lot of people here just won’t vote. I think they’ve had enough of it all.

Was that not the truth of the GE 2019 result? Conservative vote up just 1.2% nationally, but Labour vote down, and by 8%. Labour may have lost, but this was not a Conservative victory, as such. People were not voting Labour, maybe not voting at all, or were in a few cases voting Con to spite Lab. They were not voting Con for “positive” reasons.

Blink and you would miss it

Ah, nearly missed it: a small news story about the winding-down or winding-up of the “Independent Group for Change”, briefly known as “Change UK”, the party whose meetings tended to attract a crowd of about 5 (literally), once or twice actually getting into double figures, and where the audience was always outnumbered by the Press and sometimes by the few on stage.

Anna Soubry is now off to swim in a vat of gin.

Trump impeachment

Americans like a bit of drama. When I lived in the central/shore area of New Jersey, local TV (based in New York City) would sometimes report on an expected storm, sending a reporter out onto the New Jersey beaches dressed in raincoat and scarf. Often enough, the waves were disappointingly languid, resulting in a non-event.

That is how I see the “Trump impeachment”— lots of noise, but no result that means anything. Trump is sent for trial by the Democrat-controlled lower house, sent for trial to a Senate where the Republican majority will secure his acquittal. Over there, they regard that sort of waste of time and effort as “democracy”. I just call it “farce”.

Meanwhile, in another fake democracy…

Something more to think about

Final words

Further Thoughts About The Recent General Election

I am just putting down stray thoughts. I shall update this during the day and thereafter.

I have already blogged about the General Election result:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/12/13/reflections-on-the-2019-general-election/

It may be that the most significant fact about the General Election result is that the Conservative Party vote increased by only 1.2 points vis a vis 2017, from 42.4% to 43.6%.

The Labour vote decreased from about 40% to 32.2%. So about 8 points.

It follows that this was not some kind of “Conservative” surge, but a function of the relative collapse of the Labour vote. It also means that Boris-idiot in 2019 is scarcely more popular than was Theresa May in 2017.

Logically, it is unlikely that the economic and social situation in the UK will improve much, if at all, between now and 2022, let alone December 2024, the maximum term of this Boris-idiot government.

We know that, as far as members go, the Con Party has, or had earlier this year, 140,000 members, a quarter of the size of Labour; of which 90,000+ voted for Boris Johnson to lead them. Members, though, are less important than voters.

The membership of the Conservative Party increased greatly in late-2018 to early-2019. 36,000 new members. There were speculations about “entryism”, maybe by former UKIP members:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jun/21/more-than-half-of-tory-members-would-ruin-party-over-brexit

It is a fair inference that those new 36,000+ members were almost all Boris partisans. Without them, he might even not have been elected leader.

The Conservative Party is now in charge of a government built on shifting sands.

The average Conservative member is over 60 now (though all major System parties now have averages over 50). About half are over 70 years of age.

The typical Conservative voter is at least middleaged, and in fact usually an elderly person. Only in those over about 60 years of age is there a majority in favour of the Conservative Party.

The above-cited Guardian article now adds this rider:

“• This article was amended on 24 June 2019 because an earlier version referred to a supposed “geriatric membership”. Geriatric refers to a branch of medicine; octogenarian was meant. This has been corrected.”

An “octogenarian” membership?!

The obvious if ghoulish corollary to the above is that very many Conservative Party members and many Con voters will not see the next general election (assuming that there is one…).

Shifting sands

The new Conservative MPs from the North and Midlands represent areas traditionally not Conservative. The roots are shallow.

One sees that the constituencies where the Labour Party was not so much affected by the mainly white voter-defection to the Conservative Party were those areas largely inhabited by non-whites. See, for example, Liz Kendall’s seat at Leicester West:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leicester_West_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

  • Liz Kendall got just under 50% of the vote, compared to about 60% in 2017 and about 47% in 2015.
  • David Lammy’s seat at Tottenham:  76% in 2019, as against 82% in 2017 and 67% in 2015

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leicester_West_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

The msm-applauded “surge” to the Conservatives (in fact only 1.2 points) nationally, which was really an 8-point withdrawal from Labour, has scarcely touched those and similar seats. That supports my view that Labour, in terms of votes, is now largely (not entirely) the party of the “blacks and browns”.

It also supports my view that what the people really want, subconsciously, is a less militarized, less German, more “British” form of National Socialism, but brought into the contemporary arena as social-nationalism or the like.

If the economy tanks for whatever reason (mishandled Brexit, a continuation of the “austerity” nonsense of Osborne and Cameron-Levita, world events), then the brief “popularity” of Boris-idiot and the misnamed “Conservatives” (which in any case is not so: Con Party up only 1.2 points; though Labour is unpopular) will soak away into the desert sand. Will the people then look to “Labour”? Or elsewhere?

One thing is sure: the people cannot vote for a party that does not exist.

So far, since the demise of the BNP, the only alternatives —indeed one alternative under two successive names— to System parties have been UKIP and Brexit Party, effectively the same or under the same control when significant. Controlled opposition. Fakes. Parties posing as conservative “nationalist” while having candidates who were black, brown, Jew, you name it. Even a couple of ex-Marxist “revolutionary” lesbians. And the rabbits all accepted it. Even the “antifa” idiot-mob made those parties a major target of their bile, taking them as they assumed that those parties were, not as they really were.

A few quite random tweets I saw today, which seem to be symptomatic of the craziness of the general election farce that the UK’s degenerate political milieu has just held:

People in Scunthorpe (!) so desperate for a better life and a better UK that they will vote Conservative! My take? “Labour is mostly trash, the Conservative Party is 99% trash, and so people clutch at straws as they drown.”

And what about this one (below)? Jew ex-Labour Party types happy that (of all “people”…I call the bastard “devil”) Iain Duncan Smith kept his seat! For the Jews, it really is always “all about them”, whether it be the 2019 General Election, the evil Con regimes of 2010-2019, or the Second World War.

Below: Jews crying with happiness that a finance-capitalist government has been “elected” by lies and big money advertising…

Who is “gnasher jew”? Appropriately enough, they are not one Jew but legion, but here is one, anyway:

“Gnasher Jew” (one of that cabal of several Jews…) tweeted a semi-literate tweet a few months ago to the effect that I am “a convicted anti-Semite”. No, not convicted of “antisemitism” (which would in fact be impossible anyway, because “antisemitism” is not a criminal offence in the UK) or anything else.

Labour news

I see that Laura Pidcock, now 32, lost her seat at North West Durham. She is all too typical of young Labour MPs (many of whom are now ex-MPs): sole non-political job a few weeks or months as a “mental health support worker” (in her case): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Pidcock

Laura Pidcock is so very typical: “anti-racist” “activist”, a kind of post-Marxist; probably solid on grass-roots problems such as poverty, but I doubt that I am guessing too wildly if I say that she probably thinks that mass immigration is great for the people of the UK. And so on. Well, that’s her binned politically.

Now we move on to a Labour MP who, unfortunately, is still in place: Jess Phillips. This ignorant horrible woman was the subject of one of my “Deadhead MPs” blog articles:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/05/07/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-jess-phillips-story/

There is now a push from the Jewish lobby and msm to make this ignorant creature Labour leader! Labour, the party of Attlee, Wilson, Blair (whatever their flaws and whatever my own criticism of their policies and direction)…

Jess Phillips is pushing herself forward, despite her lack of culture and education:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/dec/14/working-class-voters-didnt-trust-labour-jess-phillips

Her article, in that stronghold of “working-class” life, The Observer, says that “disappointed” ex-Labour voters voted Conservative; but we have seen that the Conservative vote only went up, nationally, by 1.2 points, so not many former Labour voters did vote Con. Probably more in the North. Generally, they may well have stayed home and not voted, though.

There is also the point that only two-thirds (67.3%) of those eligible turned out to vote.

As one might expect, Jess Phillips’s article does not identify what Labour might do to regain its position, just says that the swing would have to be on the scale of 1997. I am scarcely a fan of Blair, Brown etc, but we have descended into farce if their positions or roles will be taken by Jess Phillips and…who? Yvette Cooper? (shudders…)

The accompanying photograph certainly makes my point about Labour being now largely the party of the “blacks and browns”! Hardly a white face…

Here (below) we see someone who is evidently not one of the world’s great thinkers:

Ever heard of mass immigration? Also known as “migration-invasion”. 13 million since 1997, plus births, plus illegals. Those eligible to vote and who do vote, all vote Labour.

…and look at this arrogance!

Oh, right….”serious current affairs shows” (there are few, if any, anyway) should not give time to “extremists“….Of course, giving time to Indian “Scottish” women who apparently do stand-up comedy and a bit of msm talking-head droning about politics (mainly about how there is supposedly too much “antisemitism”) is OK… of course….oh, no, wait…

Update, 15 December 2019

As expected, the msm are going mad about the “crushing victory” of Boris-idiot and the Con Party, despite the fact that the Conservative vote-share only increased by 1.2 points over what it was in 2017.

I missed this:

In Hartlepool, where Labour has always won, usually with over 50% of the vote and sometimes with over 60%, Labour won again, but on its lowest vote-share ever, only 37.7%. The stunning fact is that the Conservative candidate, in second place, got 28.9% and the Brexit Party candidate (Tice, Farage’s 2-i-c), got 25.8%. In other words, had either the Conservative Party or Brexit Party not stood, Labour would have lost that once very safe Labour seat, and by some margin.

Back on the Jewish front…

The Jewish actress and anti-Corbyn tweeter, Frances Barber (who was rather rude about me a few times when I had a Twitter account), now suggests (see below) that some Corbyn supporters be shot! Will the police be interested? No. However, were anyone to suggest that Con-supporting or Jewish-lobby-supporting persons should be shot, M. le Commissaire Plod would be on the case immediately.

and note how totally irrelevant New York-based loonie and former/one-time/briefly/disgraced ex-MP Louse —I mean Louise— Mensch, tries to seem relevant to British political life, even now!

Labour’s slow decline

I usually make fun of Ash Sarkar e.g.https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/01/01/disordered-and-infantile-people/ , but she makes good (if to me obvious) points here:

The Jews are crowing

Partly because they now have a low-tax government packed with Jews, pro-Jews, pro-Israel Zionists, even Israeli agents. Mainly, though, because they have got rid of Corbyn. He and his people may still be there, but they are there in the manner of El Cid in the film with Charlton Heston. The Cid is dead, but is put back on his horse and rides out. In the case of the Cid, to victory, but in the case of Corbyn, over the field of defeat. The Jews have “won”, but only over Corbyn-Labour. “Their” victory may prove to be Pyrrhic and/or short-lived.

Of course, I should have preferred to see a weak, minority government headed by Corbyn, but for me the General Election result also has its good aspects (already blogged about), such as the “Labour Friends of Israel” MPs getting the order of the boot: Ruth Smeeth, Anna Turley, Mary Creagh, Emma Reynolds etc. Luciana Berger also failed. Others too. Parliament has been purged, albeit in limited fashion. John Woodcock, John Mann, Ian Austin— all gone. Jo Swinson too, who was almost creepily pro-Zionist.

[Get down there, you devil, where you wanted me to go!]

Now?

Despite the election result being very much not to my taste, I scent prey here. Now that Labour has been badly wounded, the present evil ZOG regime does not have any real Opposition in Parliament or outside Parliament. The few hundred protesters in Whitehall were easily contained and were little more than an almost-peaceful sideshow.

This should be the moment when a social-national party or movement should arise, with the horns of a lamb and the words of a dragon.

More from Labour

Interesting:

We are witnessing the beginnings of a fundamental realignment in British politics. The old tribalisms are crashing down around us. How Labour responds to this will determine whether it remains a serious political force or is instead destined to become a party of permanent protest.” [Unherd/Blue Labour]

Also:

We’re back! (see below). “Economically-radical” —and national— “socialism”… 

Quite a lot of sense in there, but you cannot put new wine in old bottles. Both Labour and Conservative parties are dying. The election hullabaloo should not disguise that. Labour is going straight down now.

“Centrism”, i.e. returning to Blair-Brown times, the Zionist-Labour controllers monitoring the British people and destroying their race and culture (as well as their rights) will not wash now.

Likewise, multikulti Corbyn-Labourism, with its “anti-racism” and “antifascism”, and its tired, hackneyed references to “No Pasaran!”, “Cable Street”, “kick racism out of…blah blah blah”, and the lip-service paid to (dear God…) WW2 “holocaust” fakery and hoaxes, not to mention support for Cuban “socialism”, 1980s Nicaragua or the disastrous Venezuelan regime, is a very dead duck.

McDonnell, the worst thug “antifascist” (and IRA acolyte) of the lot at senior level in Labour (and who played a double game, sucking up to the Jews at every opportunity), was pictured on TV, in his garden, looking like a bemused “grandad” who has just been tipped out of his wheelchair and mugged. He’s gone, finished.

The “parties” of con-man Farage (UKIP, Brexit Party, any new one he may start) are dead too, as are the LibDems.

Only a new social-national party and movement can save the people of Britain.

Even elements of Labour, as seen above, are starting to recognize the correct direction of travel. What matters are the fundamentals:

  • the elements of a “threefold social order” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_threefolding
  • the foundation for a better society and a better world can only now be that of European race, nation and culture;
  • there must be a cultural revolution to “drain” (or drown) the swamp(s): msm, politics, law, academia.

Westminstermonkeyhouse

Britain’s mass media 2019:

Unsuccessful Parliamentary candidate Fazia Shaheen (Labour), who came fairly close to beating evil Iain Dunce Duncan Smith at Chingford, questioned by presenter Emma Barnett (who describes herself as “a Jew in disguise“) and part-Jew ex-MP Jack Straw.

I was sent interesting information this evening, a map showing what the Parliamentary map of the UK would look like had only those aged 18-24 voted last Thursday (ignore the comment appended by the named “alt-Right/alt-Lite” British-resident ex-Muslim. That comment is absurdly simplistic, ignoring the real reasons why the young favour Labour, i.e. student debt, degrees that are often worthless in all ways, high rent, impossibility of buying a house or even getting a mortgage, low pay, exploitation etc). The map itself is stunning.

118to24voting

You see the result, above. All seats Labour, except for about (?) 20 SNP, about 20 LibDem, and 1 Plaid Cymru. No Conservative Party seats at all, not even in the most affluent parts of the South of England.

That is the train the Conservative Party has coming down the track at it. It may well be that the 18-24 y o voters of today may be less “anti-Conservative”, less pro-Labour in say 2024, when they are 23-29, but even if that map only shows a 75% picture, indeed if it displays even a 50% picture, the future for the Conservative Party is bleak. That bleakness can be intensified by looking at the present Conservative voters aged 65+. That is the hard core of the Conservative vote, and much of it will not exist in 2024.

So, demographically, the Conservative Party vote will have (literally) died by 2024. Not entirely, but to a great extent. The non-Conservative vote will have greatly increased. The only question is, will that new vote be for Labour, or something else, something completely new?

Update, 16 December 2019

Interesting fact. Had Labour received a total of only 2,227 more votes over 7 constituencies in 2017, i.e. about 320 votes extra, averaged, in each of those 7 constituencies, it could then have formed a minority/coalition government with smaller parties:

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/corbyn-election-results-votes-away-prime-minister-theresa-may-hung-parliament-a7782581.html

Corbyn would then have been Prime Minister and Boris-idiot would probably never even have become Conservative leader; at any rate, Labour might have ruled until 2022. Another example of the madness of Britain’s electoral system, whichever way you look at it.

LibDems

Seems that Jo Swinson is likely to get a fake “peerage” soon. A reward for failure? A reward for doormatting for the Jewish lobby, for sure.

Meanwhile, the 11 remaining LibDem MPs will be voting for a leader. Seems that a woman just elected as MP may get the job.

Boundary changes soon to be implemented will probably reduce the LibDem MP cadre to about 3, assuming that any survive the next general election anyway. Is there really any purpose to the LibDems now? The Con Coalition of 2010-2019 destroyed LibDem credibility, then since 2017 Jo Swinson’s behaviour killed any remaining respect that the voters may have retained for this joke party.

The House of Lords is a bad joke too. There are “peers” such as (soon) Jo Swinson, i.e. failed, old or mediocre ex-MPs. There are peers who were “ennobled” because they were cronies of Prime Ministers or other party leaders.

One woman (Michelle Mone) is there because she posed for a while as a successful “entrepreneuse” flogging lingerie. What a farce! [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelle_Mone,_Baroness_Mone#Politics][https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimo_(brand)#History].

That particular one picked up a very wealthy boyfriend later, and is actually at the Lords rarely if at all. At least that saves the State and people the taxfree £310+ per day “peers” are paid if they sign in for 10 minutes! Her company ceased trading in 2018.

Then we have the odds and sods in the Lords, elevated to make a good headline, such as the instant West Indian “baroness” who is in the Lords because her son was killed by white youths in a bus shelter in the 1990s. You really could not make it up!

Jew wants Labour to die

He also wants his pound of flesh…

[by the way, that photo is not him but an actor; the Jew looks very different and not at all “heroic”!][Update, 23 August 2020: the “avatar” photo has gone, replaced by that cartoon. I believe that I once saw “Nuddering”, then on Twitter as “The Nuddering Nudnik” (it means something in Yiddish), on TV: a thin bearded Jew, and possibly with mental problems, in my opinion].

Labour leadership contest (not yet —officially— going)

The System is pushing for Lisa Nandy to replace Corbyn. Below, Kay Burley, Sky News talking head:

Kay Burley is very much of the System msm. Paid hundreds of thousands a year, and her ex-husband (and father of her child) is a Jew:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kay_Burley#Personal_life

I sympathize with Labour members and supporters if the choice is going to be between Lisa Nandy and Jess Phillips. Good grief!

Lisa Nandy is the kind of person the System would love to have as “Labour” leader: half-Indian, grandfather a Liberal Party MP and, in later life, a Liberal peer, and (despite her rhetoric about getting close to “our communities”) has never worked outside politics, unless you include some politicized charity work (researcher etc). Pro-migration-invasion. Anti-Corbyn so probably pro-Jew. Has a child but is not married to the father, who is a “public relations consultant”. She even has a link to one of the renamed and all-but-toothless (and politically-correct) trade unions:

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

http://acolliscommunications.com/

As to Jess Phillips, I blogged about her a while ago:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/05/07/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-jess-phillips-story/

While Lisa Nandy is not my idea of a politician for Britain, and for several reasons, she is a serious figure, whereas Jess Phillips is just a vulgar bad joke.

Jews try to repress free speech in the UK even more now

The “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [CAA] is raising money in order to wage “lawfare” against anyone they label “antisemitic”. In a day or so, the “CAA” has already raised nearly £70,000 from about 30 Jews. About £2,500 average apiece. Of course, to suggest that Jews are more affluent than native/real British people would be “antisemitic”, so they would say…

Meanwhile, the Boris-idiot ZOG (Zionist Occupation Government) and the Zionists “behind the arras” are quickening plans to destroy free speech and dissent:

The Boris Johnson/”Conservative” Party ZOG victory in the general election was procured via Jewish money and mass media influence. “It was the Jews wot won it”, to adapt the famous Sun headline of 1992. See below:

Note the “fellow British citizens” weaselling.

The Golan Heights Chardonnay must have flowed like water.

Now the Zionists are, as noted already, preparing to attack free speech in even more ambitious and evil ways, by using large amounts of Jewish money to misuse the British legal system:

Emily Thornberry threatens to sue ex-MP Caroline Flint! “I’m lovin’ it…”!

Caroline Flint says that Emily Thornberry (aka Lady Nugee— her husband is a half-Jewish High Court judge; see photograph below) said that those in the North etc who voted Conservative instead of voting Labour in their “ancestral”/traditional habit, are or were “stupid”. Well, motivations for voting are complex sometimes, but if Emily Thornberry said that, I can see her point!

EmilyThornberryIsraelLobby

[above, Emily Thornberry, her husband (on right of picture) and the Israeli Ambassador, Mark Regev, at a Zionist banquet in London]

Boris Johnson could ditch promise to guarantee workers’ rights and environmental protections after Brexit, No10 suggests

[headline, The Independent]

Well, that did not take long. 3-4 days into the Boris-idiot ZOG regime and the lying “promises” are already being broken…

Anything is now justifiable to remove “Boris”, his ZOG Cabinet and this whole (misnamed) “Conservative” regime procured by lies and huge amounts of money.

Remember the poll tax?

BBC and other msm bias?

Which is why non-msm news and comment websites have become so popular. Popular with the public, though not with the System.

Now I read that The Canary [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Canary_(website)] is going to be “investigated” by ex-Labour ex-MP and doormat for Zionist Jewry, John Mann. The political and social milieu  in the UK is now almost Stalinist, albeit well-disguised. People, whole parties (Labour now) and news outlets placed “under investigation” by pro-Jew, pro-Israel apostates like Mann and John Woodcock. Ironically, the editor of The Canary is herself a Jewish lesbian.

I suppose that “lord” Mann would approve of the incitement to violence by an ersatz “Jewess” called Charlotte Nichols, who (just) managed to get elected at Warrington North:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warrington_North_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/charlotte-nichols-nazis/

https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/jewish-labour-candidate-antisemitism-something-i-really-want-resolved-general-election-1.494150

In fact this woman, about whom there is not a great deal of information in the public domain, is a convert to Judaism, apparently. The traditional Jews do not even allow that. She made an amusingly bullshit statement to the TV to the effect that “as a Jewish woman” (which she is not, really) “whose grandfather fought in WW2” (so what? So did mine— BEF France, Dunkirk, later Burma— it’s usually Jews who make a big thing of that now, 75-80 years later, to try to sound somehow “credible” on such topics…she has learned from them, it seems…).

Is Charlotte Nichols aware of the terrorism that Jew-Zionist extremists unleashed against British soldiers (soldiers just like her grandfather) in Palestine after (and indeed before) 1945 (and against civilians too)? Bombs, bullets, the Jews even hanged some British soldiers.

“What goes around comes around”… [an American saying]

In fact, I feel that the country is turning away from civilities. The Zionist Jews are intensifying their well-funded abuse of the legal system for political purposes, and here is a “Jewish” woman (ersatz or “self-identifying”, so be it) saying that “Nazis” “should get their heads kicked in“.

In fact this Charlotte Nichols is not a known political quantity. “Brought up in the North West” but “living in London”, according to Wikipedia, which contains little else about her, not even her age or parentage. She has apparently been a trade union office-bod for several years.

This is what she says about herself:

https://www.thejc.com/comment/comment/jewish-convert-kaddish-gaza-charlotte-nichols-1.464705

Here is what the Daily Mail had to say about her prior to her election:

and the Telegraph:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/11/16/labour-candidatehas-repeatedly-attacked-critics-jeremy-corbyns/

In her TV interview, she mentioned that her opponents “made use of” her “medical history” or some such. Are we talking mental health “issues”? I wonder…

She says that she was born in Romford, East London, but brought up in Reading:

She sounds like a loonie, in fact.

Update, 17 December 2019

Having woken up unwillingly, thanks to a gardener using a very noisy leafblower, my thoughts about what is left of the Labour Party are not very kind, especially having yesterday also noticed the comments of that Warrington North loonie (see above).

The prevailing wind at present comes from the wishful thinking direction. Labour is not the only example. However, it is a good example.

I saw it during the internal election that brought Corbyn to power. One instance was a Labour rally/meeting in York, which was in all the newspapers. Labour sources were ecstatic. Corbyn attracted about 2,000 or more listeners, maybe it was even 5,000. Yet the York area, as I tweeted at the time (the Jews, those benefactors of humanity, had not yet managed to have me expelled from Twitter), has about 210,000 people. You see my point. The crowd may have looked huge but was only 1%-2% of the population.

Nigel Farage was getting crowds of 2,000 recently, but in the end, the net result was almost zero.

Wishful thinking…Yes, Boris-idiot has plenty too, and his supporters more, but I am talking about Labour now.

When I used to hear Corbyn talking about politics, it was often like wandering into the Collet’s London Bookshop in Charing Cross Road c.1976. Militant, Tribune, the Morning Star, posters about anti-apartheid rallies, the socialist struggle in Latin America, Fascism, “No Pasaran!“, Cable Street etc.

Many many years ago, maybe 35-40 years ago, when I was learning Russian, I was always struck by the masthead of the newspaper Izvestia, which showed, inter alia, a picture of the cruiser Aurora, whose single (and blank) shot was a key event in the Bolshevik takeover of late 1917.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_cruiser_Aurora#October_Revolution_mutiny. It always seemed to me a symptom of a state political system preserved in jelly, or ossified. A state stuck in the battles of 60 years before.

The self-described “Left” in Britain is also like that (though I myself always avoid the use of “Right”, “Left” etc as unhelpful and undescriptive). So we get Labour MPs still, in 2019, talking about “Cable Street” (which they evidently do not know much about anyway), and which took place 83 years ago, as if it means something today. No. It does not. https://www.oswaldmosley.com/battle-of-cable-street/

Another myth is that trade unions still mean something. They don’t. Anyone listening to the last few Secretaries-General of the TUC could understand easily that the old powerful (sometimes too powerful) British trade unions of the 1970s and 1980s, destroyed by the outcome of a few large strikes (notably the Miners’ Strike) and by other factors (Conservative government legislation, but more importantly the gradual closure of heavy industry and then almost all manufacturing and extractive industry, and above all by immigration on a vast scale), have become toothless, politically-correct bodies not even much good as “workers’ advice” centres.

Mass immigration has destroyed much in the UK. One victim has been effective trade unions. Big business loves mass immigration: more consumers, lower unit wage costs etc.

For the typical Labour MP, member, supporter, what I have just written is unacceptable. For those people, “Cable Street” still means something, trade unions are still a major fact, mass immigration is something not only not bad but very good, something to be (in their sickening bastard language) “celebrated”.

House of “Lords”

The tweet below does not say everything that could and should be said about the House of Lords, but it does say a lot.

The tweeter was kind enough not to overload his tweet with “inherited £300 million, or £500 million, pounds“.

In a way, though, that tweet, by that tweeter, is symptomatic of the whole of the self-describing “Left” or “socialist” side of UK politics generally (and indeed of most of what the System and “antifascists” call “the far Right”, too). The response to manifest injustice and to political chicanery is not the “aux armes, citoyens!” of French history, not the Germanenorden of German history, neither the disciplined ranks of SS and SA nor even the barricades of 1968 Paris. It is the bleat of the tweet, the bleat of people whose idea of being radical, and even edgily so, is to post a comment (being careful not to infringe the ever-more-repressive laws around what is lawful to say or not, as free speech is eroded).

This made me laugh:

The subject itself is not funny, of course:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7803721/One-200-Britons-homeless-figure-jumps-9-2016.html

Proportional Representation

Interesting to see that three-quarters of Labour supporters now back PR. The “Conservatives” see no need now that they have a large majority in the Commons, but their spell as top dogs may be both short and lead to a different outcome. Still, I detect seismic movement at last, deep under the surface. This may happen, at last, but not for the life of this Parliament.

Time to say goodbye (from this blog post). I think that I shall start a daily comments blog soon.

Update, 23 August 2020

Since I wrote the blog post above, a very good explanatory graphic was created to show where 2017 voters went in 2019:

Note that almost as many previous Labour voters failed to vote (at all) as went to all other parties combined.

General Election 2019 Daily Updated Blog (no.6)

I have decided to restart my General Election blog thread, for the usual reasons of convenience.

26 November 2019

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/26/can-labour-bounce-back-in-polls-with-just-16-days-until-election

Anyone who wants to read my reaction to the interference in the General Election by the Chief Rabbi (I prefer “Chief Pharisee”) can see it on my previous General Election 2019 blog (no.5). I made the point that, with (((typical))) damned cheek, the Chief Pharisee talked about “our country” and “the soul of our nation“!

What country or nation would that be? Ephraim Mirvis was born in South Africa, lived most of his life in Israel, finally moved to Ireland, and only in the 1990s washed up on British shores.

What interests me more is that virtually every newspaper has made this its front-page splash. Every radio and TV show leads with it too. I think that we can see where the influence and power (whether political, or the money-power) resides in the UK when it comes to the mass media…

Just saw this. Made me laugh, but it shows what fakery goes on in System politics (that’s right, fakery is not confined to so-called “holocaust” “survivors”! Neither is it confined to Jews, if truth be told…)

One of the most recent opinion polls, below, would seem to suggest that my assessment(s) in my General Election blogs, to the effect that Hung Parliament is as likely as a Con majority, might be right after all:

By my use of Electoral Calculus, that poll works out as suggesting Cons as largest party, but 14 MPs short of a Commons majority. So in other words, the Conservative Party would be worse off than it was before the prorogation. That would probably result in Boris-idiot being dismissed, stabbed in the back and the front by his own surviving MPs. Happy day!

If only Corbyn and Labour would just tell the Zionist Jews to shut up, instead of which Labour weasels, wrings hands, says how terrible “anti-Semitism” is (even when basically defensive in nature), and whines that Labour wants to stamp it out etc. “Stamp out” the freedom of expression of British people? Goodbye Labour…

The usual lack of self-awareness from Dunce Duncan Smith. I am against graffiti of every kind, mainly for aesthetic reasons, but if this is all that happens to Dunce and his cohorts, after what he has inflicted on so many, and over so many years, I think that he should offer up a prayer of thanks to the heavens.

While we are on the subject of the unintelligent kind of “Conservative”, take a look at Twitter account @TheaDickinson. “The stupid party” to the very marrow! Example:

Twitter account @AlexGPorter explains the reality: Labour’s tax plans mean that persons earning £81,000 p.a. or so will pay maybe £10 per month extra in income tax, but of course there are those who earn, or at least receive, pre-tax, literally millions p.a. They might well end up paying hundreds or even thousands of pounds per month extra tax (but they will still be receiving huge amounts; violins not required):

Not that I agree with all of the above plan. Independent schools do not pay tax on fees and donations because most are not profit-making. They are non-profit and for purposes of education and so are treated as charitable in the legal sense. Why do I oppose taxing their fees and donations?

Firstly because education has always been treated as one of the “heads of charity” under the (16thC) Statute of Elizabeth. That merely secularized the ancient privileges of previously-religious institutions which, before Henry VIII, provided almost all education. Of course, even today many schools are run by religious bodies.

Secondly, I favour schools having tax breaks because the UK must improve its educational level generally. You cannot do that by degrading the resources available to the best schools.

Thirdly, independent schools offer numerous scholarships and bursaries, which would be far less common were schools to lose significant funding by reason of having to pay tax or extra tax.

The polls are tightening” (as I thought that they would):

The battle lines are set, barring late events. 15 clear days before Polling Day.

Update, 27 November 2019

Switching on a radio, I hear that Corbyn has had a “car crash” interview with Andrew Neil. A brief extract was played on BBC radio news. A few thoughts on that:

  • Andrew Neil is the best political interviewer around at present, but
  • Andrew Neil is almost absurdly pro-Jew, and has repeatedly ranted against those who think that the Jews have disproportionate power, influence and money in the UK. Why Neil is so seemingly philo-Semitic in that sense, I do not know. There may be several reasons.
  • The BBC seemed to have a biased presentation (on the radio news), in that
  • In the extract I heard, Neil asked about taxing those earning under £81,000 p.a., and Corbyn tried to answer to the effect that, yes, in strict terms, those earning lower amounts might pay [obviously a small amount] of extra income tax but would get more back in other ways. In relation to that quite reasonable answer,
  • Andrew Neil wanted to focus only on income tax and
  • the BBC radio news cut off Corbyn’s reasoned response after seconds.
  • the BBC is acting like a biased State broadcaster. It has to go.

I am enough of a “democrat”, or at least sufficiently fair, to be at least somewhat shocked (though hardly “surprised”) by the BBC bias, despite my not being “pro-Labour” as such.

My other thought about the supposedly “disastrous” interview is that most people will not have seen or heard it anyway. Of course, the msm will push it on the news.

Labour should have said from the start, “yes, a relative few earning under £81,000 will pay a little more, about £20 a month, by losing one specific tax break, but will receive far more in other ways, so will be better off”. How hard is that?

In other news, low-profile (and thick as two short planks) Labour MP Nia Griffith https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nia_Griffith has said that Labour should “apologize” yet again to the Jews for daring to mildly criticize some of them. My thoughts:

  • Nia Griffith should be sacked at once, both as Shadow Secretary of State and as MP;
  • Nia Griffith is a member of Labour Friends of Israel;
  • Nia Griffith was a proven expenses cheat;
  • Nia Griffith is a lesbian;
  • Nia Griffith (previously a schoolteacher) has “done very well” out of being an MP since she was elected in 2005, owning a London flat, a house in Llanelli, Wales, and also a subsidized 10-acre smallholding in Wales (Carmarthenshire) in addition to the Llanelli house.
  • Why was Nia Griffith ever appointed as Shadow Sec. of State for Defence? She has no military, naval or other defence background, has never shown any knowledge about the issues, in fact has been all but invisible (she was a teacher before latching on to the old MP racket).
  • Another pro-Israel doormat.
  • Her outburst about Jews was obviously planned to cause as much damage to Labour’s General Election chances as possible; it’s treachery.
  • Was she ordered to make this outburst? If so, by whom? Labour Friends of Israel? The Israeli Embassy? Other treacherous “Labour” MPs or persons?
  • cf. the Shai Masot case:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buFz_zkSHqs

Here’s a strange thing: Ian Austin, ex-Labour MP and one of the worst doormats for the Jewish and Israeli lobby in the UK, as well as one of the most shameless expenses cheats of the 2005-2010 Parliament (he was basically a fraudster) seems to believe that bestiality is not so bad that pornography involving bestiality cannot be decriminalized!

Austin is now a main figurehead for “Mainstream“, a Jewish-funded anti-Corbyn pop-up “organization”, together with another ex-MP, John Woodcock, the sex pest and depressive case (and another doormat for Israel and the Jewish lobby), who has now been appointed by Boris-idiot as a kind of Government snoop and monitor of so called “far right” people (social nationalists). Nice people…(not, obviously). Both of these blots used to block me on Twitter (in Woodcock’s case because faux-“revolutionary” and “licensed Bolshevik” “intellectual” (?) Owen Jones told him to!).

So Ian Austin thinks that bestiality-pornography, and some other types of pornography, should be decriminalized, but that “holocaust” “denial” (historical examination and revision) and anything “anti-Semitic” or critical of Jews should be criminalized?! Strange priorities. Makes one wonder about Austin, who is unmarried.

Breaking news, about a Conservative secret plan to sell off the NHS!

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/general-election-news-live-boris-johnson-corbyn-register-vote-labour-brexit-snp-a9219426.html

The above news is more confirmation of the basically alien nature of the upper ranks of the Conservative Party: multikulti cosmopolitans, rootless Zionist Jews and pro-Zionists from India, Pakistan, Uganda, New York City etc. Are any of the bastards BRITISH except in terms of their passports?

The NHS has its faults (not all money-related) but overall it is one of Britain’s best aspects, and must not be sold off to alien financial interests.

On the other hand, it may be that the NHS needs radical reform. A reader of my blog asked me today about South Korea’s health service. I knew nothing of it. I do now:

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

The Labour claim (and documentation) about the NHS “up for sale” to American health finance interests could be a game-changer in this election. The NHS is central to UK society. Its flaws. Its great strengths. Any suggestion that it might be sold off in bits to American finance will be greeted with horror by a huge majority of the voters, even by most Conservative Party voters.

This would produce a result of Conservatives as largest party, but (blessedly) 14 short of a Commons majority. Excellent.

Update, 28 November 2019

I expect that some who read my blog imagine that I am pro-Labour Party because I am 100% anti-Conservative Party. Not so. For me, it is essential that the Boris-idiot Zionist Occupation Cabinet is defeated, but a Labour majority government would also be very bad, though perhaps not quite as bad. The best result in the General Election would be a hung Parliament, leading to a weak minority government, preferably a Corbyn-Labour one. That would be the best seedbed for real social nationalism (rather than the fake Zionist-lobby “nationalism” of UKIP, Brexit Party, the “alt-Right”, Tommy Robinson, Katie Hopkins etc).

Boris-idiot is still avoiding an interview with Andrew Neil. He is afraid:

Below, a Jewish woman takes what must surely be a commonsense view of the contrived “Corbyn is ‘anti-Semitic‘” noise put out by the Jew-Zionist “claque”:

Isn’t it incredible? This storm in a teacup, meaning whipped up fakery of Labour “anti-Semitism”, has had more msm play in the past days and weeks than, eg, those dying after having peanuts benefits removed, millions trying to survive either on low benefits or low pay or both, the continuing invasion of the UK by blacks, browns and others, the NHS being slowly sold out and sold off to American (((financial))) interests, etc etc.

I wonder why the Zionist Jews and their self-interested whining have all the publicity? Could it be because, as Rupert Murdoch said some years ago, “they” own most of the Press in the UK? You can add to that, that (((they))) also staff most of the newspapers, TV and radio stations and so on. Any journalist not going along with what “they” want is immediately hounded and probably removed from his or her job. “They” have destroyed the independence of the UK msm, and are working on also censoring and “monitoring” social media and the Internet generally.

Freedom of socio-political (and historical) expression is one of the most important battlefields of our time. Perhaps the most important.

From where I am standing, Labour and Corbyn do not seem to be “anti-Semitic” anyway, even in a defensive way. After all, I —of all people— ought to know! (Google “Ian Millard barrister” and you will see what I mean!).

When one thinks of everything the people of England have undergone even in the past 10 years, and that applies especially to the poorer people in this society, and yet the Jews (many of them anyway) do nothing but whine, complain, denounce people (i.e. non-Jews) to police, Twitter, Facebook etc, and make demands regarding their own selfish, self-interested tribal interests.

I should not be surprised if this contrived anti-Labour Party “anti-Semitism” whining and demanding results in an awakening of many formerly asleep people in this country —an awakening for the first time— to the disproportionate power and influence wielded by Jews in the UK, especially by Zionist Jews, and above all by those embedded in the mass media and politics.

Thinking about the General Election in a wider sense, I still think, despite the Conservative lead, that there is all to play for. Yes, the misnamed “Conservatives” are ahead in all the opinion polls, but there are margins of error of as much as 3 points, for a start. I have already blogged about how, a few days ago, two recent polls had almost —but not quite— identical figures, but one had Labour 2 points higher. That alone changed the likely result from Con majority of 48 to Cons being short of a majority by 4 MPs.

If the polls put Cons on 41% and Lab on 30%, it could be that the real figures are as different as Con 38% and Lab 33%. There again, every constituency is different, and national voting intentions do not predict every seat accurately.

The Greens are on 3% nationally and have been around that level for many years, but in 2010 Caroline Lucas was elected at Brighton Pavilion on a vote of about 31%, which became 41% in 2015 and 52% in 2017. Likewise, the LibDems are and have been able to apply a Schwerpunkt (concentration of forces) in particular constituencies, so despite getting under 8% nationally in both 2015 and 2017, were able to get 8, then 12, MPs elected (and the LibDem national vote declined in 2017 vis a vis 2015…).

UKIP scored higher than both the Greens and LibDems in 2015 (12.6% nationally) but nowhere had a constituency vote share big enough to get an MP elected, excepting a previously-elected Conservative defector in one seat.

It is quite possible for Labour to win this election even if it is 5 or maybe even 10 points behind the Conservative Party nationally. The seats that matter are the marginal seats, whether defined as the 50 most marginal, or the 100.

Labour has failed to really hit back at the Jews (meaning the organized pro-Israel msm Jewish/Zionist lobby). Next time, maybe, if Labour loses badly enough this time…

Apart from that, Labour should be hitting harder on NHS, private rent parasites, buy to let parasites, low pay, poor conditions at work, low standards generally. Labour should also try to reach out to the pensioner vote, as well as getting the generally pro-Labour under-35s to actually go out to vote on 12 December.

I like this:

Saw the tweet by one “Jacqueline Mojito”, below:

Those quotations from the diseased mind of Boris-idiot are at one with the Oxford University student and Bullingdon Club member (the young Boris Johnson) who burned a £50 note while taunting a homeless man living in the street. He is evil.

I noticed a clip showing Boris-idiot’s motorcade leaving the town of Telford the other day. Four large Range Rovers or similar, with about 6 motorbike cops escorting and all normal traffic blocked off. They must be afraid that someone will do something to him.

Meanwhile: “Oh, now you’re getting it, old boy!”

Those responsible for the kind of wickedness shown in that newspaper report have never been punished. Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, the Jew “lord” Freud, David Gauke, Therese Coffey, Esther McVey, David Cameron-Levita, George Osborne etc. Many others, some at the head of affairs, others not so much, right down to the robots at the bottom.

Another reason not to vote Conservative, despite Labour’s partial guilt and the LibDems’ very considerable “enabling” guilt.

Update, 29 November 2019

A couple of tweets I saw, to start today’s update:

LibDems

As I blogged previously, the LibDems are rapidly becoming an irrelevance in this election, because

  • though the LibDems have the unique aspect of being the sole Remain party of any importance in England (the SNP in Scotland and Plaid in Wales are also Remain, as are minor parties such as the Green Party), there is enough doubt or wriggle room in Labour for Remain voters to go with Labour;
  • though the Brexit mess overshadows everything, the agenda of the election has moved on: people need health services, decent pay, decent State help such as benefit payments etc; mass immigration continues; there is a housing crisis. People cannot live (and vote) by Brexit alone;
  • in the final analysis, there is going to be a harsh, Jewish-Zionist infiltrated Boris-idiot government (ZOG) in the UK unless Labour win enough seats to prevent a “Conservative” (ZOG) Commons majority. Only Labour has the ability to stop Boris; the LibDems do not have the means to win many seats, and if they did, they would just agree to another Con Coalition, as in 2010. They would “enable” the Boris ZOG Cabinet to trample on the British people;
  • Jo Swinson, it has become clear, has been elevated to a position (LibDem leader) which exceeds the level of her ability. I predicted it. She has been disastrous for the LibDems and has spent much of her time in the election campaign echoing “Conservative” cries about Labour “anti-Semitism”. A doormat for the Jewish lobby and Israel.

Assuming, as I do, that the LibDems will sink below even the 15% national polling they currently enjoy, what then? If the LibDems go down to 10% (which is certainly possible), then 5% of the national vote is going to go elsewhere, probably all or almost all to Labour. In 2017, 32 million votes were cast. That might be exceeded in 2019, but even on the 2017 figures 5% adds up to about 1.5 million votes. Per constituency, maybe 3,000 votes. Enough to upset many an applecart.

Another reason not to vote “Conservative”…

The Jews seem to want the UK 2019 General Election to be all about them. Others might say “be careful what you wish for”…

So spake Israel’s true king, and to the Fiend
Made answer meet, that made void all his wiles.
So fares it, when with truth falsehood contends.” [Milton, Paradise Regained]

Latest General Election news:

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/general-election-news-live-boris-johnson-corbyn-andrew-neil-climate-debate-ice-polls-brexit-a9225591.html

I was pleased to see this latest poll, for two reasons:

  • it confirms that I was right to say that the earlier polls predicting a huge Boris-idiot/Conservative Commons majority would narrow approaching 12 December (admittedly trite, as such narrowing is commonly the case; and
  • those percentages suggest that the misnamed “Conservative” Party (aka and more accurately, the Con Party), would be left 11 MPs short of a Commons majority. Excellent. Boris-idiot will then be (politically) assassinated by his own MPs. The Ides of December…

[I should add that the polling company see their poll as suggesting a Con majority of 1].

NHS

Having been a serial hospital visitor (not patient) for the past decade, I agree with the tweets below:

NHS maladministration goes right to the top, and right down to the “trivial” (which is not so trivial when people suffer as a result) such as being unable to park a car at a hospital or only being able to park at considerable expense. It’s just wrong. Another example: Imagine hospitals so badly managed that patients and their families cannot easily find wheelchairs! (used to get immobile or semi-mobile patients around inside hospital buildings). You don’t have to imagine it. Just visit many NHS hospitals.

The same applies to basic cleanliness in hospitals.

The maladministration within the NHS dishonours the often excellent (not always but more often than not) work put in by the clinical staff.

LibDems again…

Just saw this:

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/who-is-jo-swinson-profile-of-an-unlikely-political-veteran-of-unforced-choices-k35l922sb

Behind a paywall, but it is clear from the bit I read that LibDem expectations have collapsed and that there is the prospect, not even of the LibDems ending the election campaign with fewer than the 12 MPs the 2017 General Election brought them, not even the below-10 predicted by me a while ago, but possibly of them being reduced to one or two MPs in total. However:

The election guru John Curtice said national polling might not be the only factor: “We might discover that the Lib Dem vote becomes somewhat more geographically concentrated than it was in 2017, and therefore their ability to convert votes into seats is rather better than you might expect.” [The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/29/jo-swinson-under-scrutiny-for-election-c”ampaign

The all-important Schwerpunkt again. I myself still think that the LibDems are going to end this election in the 5-10 MPs range. The LibDems’ wider, more national appeal is looking very weak. The old Liberal Party had a distinctive, if “Marmite”, appeal. The LibDems carried that on, but it started to lose that after 2010. The LibDems’ biggest problem is irrelevance and their biggest presentational problem is the lack of a distinctive image.

The “British” Press…

John Rentoul, one of the best-informed commentators, yet sees no problem with the Press being in such few hands. He denigrates Corbyn for identifying it as an issue:

Update, 30 November 2019

“Boris Johnson’s predicted Commons majority slashed from 80 to 12 in a week, poll of polls reveals” [Daily Telegraph]

Boris-idiot responds to London Bridge attack…

The joke “Prime Minister” states that his answer is to make terrorist prisoners serve their full sentences rather than be released early…which would mean in this case that the individual would have had to wait another 2 years or so before launching his knife attack. Such a policy would just delay, not prevent. Boris is an idiot.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Arcuri, one of Johnson’s discarded “hoes”, and to whom Boris-idiot bunged £126,000 of British public money, has given an unintentionally funny interview:

“Jennifer Arcuri claims Boris Johnson was angry when he became foreign secretary because he could no longer visit her home

In a frank interview, the model-turned-entrepreneur says their relationship continued after he stepped down as mayor of London and became a cabinet minister – and that they were in touch as recently as July.

Ms Arcuri also comes closer than before to confirming a sexual relationship, saying it is always the woman who is criticised “when you have an affair with an older man”.

Referring to Mr Johnson’s promotion, in July 2016, she said: “He was pissed [off] when he became foreign secretary.

During their first encounter alone, in a hotel bar, he asked her: “Were you a model? You are absolutely beautiful. I can see you being a model and actress.”

She said: “He had complimented me but it was not sleazy in any way,” adding: “I knew where he was going with wanting to pursue me. I am not stupid.

“People had mentioned he wants to sleep with you and I said, ‘No, he doesn’t. He is just so enthralled with my mind.’

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/boris-johnson-news-latest-jennifer-arcuri-interview-affair-a9227121.html

Comedy gold.

[addendum: Arcuri’s former husband says that, while “Jennifer” —not her real name, apparently— had been a pole dancer, she had never been a working model; the “entrepreneur” or “entrepreneuse” is now being sued for about £70,000 in respect of non-repayment of student loan debt…]

The Conservative Party is losing any semblance of decent behaviour now:

The Ides of December have neither come nor gone. We are (as of tomorrow) in only the Kalends of December, and there remain 11 full days before Polling Day.

Voters in Ashford should remember that Conservative Party candidate Damian Green accesses, or at least accessed until he was caught, horrible porn, including bestiality:

Is he friendly with Ian Austin?

Latest poll shows gap Con/Lab narrowing even more:

“The Conservative lead in the general election campaign has been more than halved in just one week, putting the UK in “hung parliament territory”, an exclusive poll for The Independent shows.

Boris Johnson’s party is now only six points ahead of Labour, it has found – matching other surveys suggesting the race is tightening dramatically, amid growing Tory nervousness.

Jeremy Corbyn is successfully winning back the support of voters threatening to defect to other parties, the poll by BMG Research shows, taking his party’s rating up five points to 33 per cent.

The Conservatives, meanwhile, have dipped two points to 39 per cent, six points ahead instead of the 13 points in BMG’s survey a week ago.” [The Independent]

This is the danger which the msm drones are largely ignoring:

Maybe suited thug Matt Hancock will have to tell Tsar Boris that “the peasants are revolting!” (“and so are you, Hancock!”)

Update, 1 December 2019

Boris-idiot was too afraid to be properly interrogated by Andrew Neil, and the BBC was not going to allow the buffoon onto the softer couch of the Andrew Marr Show until he did agree to be interviewed by Neil.

Now, however, the craven BBC has caved, so Johnson will be on Marr shortly. The BBC has become, like the EU, unworkable. It has become, over the past 10 years, almost a government mouthpiece. There always were elements of that, starting (arguably) in WW2, but the BBC is now, to use the current phrase, “not fit for purpose”.

Marr show: all three newspaper reviewers women. Co-incidence or policy?

Issues covered in newspaper review: mainly General Election. Is Labour in trouble in its traditional Northern heartlands? According to Helen Pidd, Northern Editor of the Guardian, affirmative. For many voters, the question will be whether they break the local or regional taboo against voting Con, or simply abstain. My guess is abstain, but obviously that is a guess, albeit an educated one. If “abstain” is right, then it will affect only the most marginal seats.

The terror attack. Cons trying to use it politically, but after all there have been Con governments, in effect, in government for nearly 10 years now.

Another issue is rail and especially that of rail fares. Shareholders have just received over a billion pounds in dividends! Now fares are to rise again! This must help Labour, which wants to renationalize most rail.

Chuka Umunna on Marr. Ex-Labour (and ex-Change UK) MP Chukup, now a LibDem, saying that the LibDems were first or second in 134 seats in 2017, if I heard aright. He urges voters to vote LibDem tactically in seats where Labour has no real chance but LibDems do, in order to prevent the Cons from winning and getting a majority. That would be a good argument, had the LibDems any real integrity. Sadly, not. People remember the craven LibDem ministers and MPs in the 2010-2015 Con Coalition. The LibDems would prop up the Conservatives anyway.

Now Labour “baroness” Shami Chakrabarti comes onto Marr. Makes a few sensible points on terrorism, cuts to police and probation etc. She sometimes seems so far up her own **** that she might suddenly go into orbit or, perhaps, turn to stone and become a statue of herself. Her actual points are better than her initial presentation of herself.

My feeling is that Labour would do better not to engage too much with the terror issue. The Conservatives would love to link Corbyn with terrorism. After all, the recent attack was the act of one semi-lunatic, albeit politicized. It was not “terrorism” in the political sense, as was, say, the IRA bombing campaign of 1970-1999.

Boris-idiot now on Marr. Trying to say that Labour’s parole law of 2008 somehow caused the London Bridge attack of last week. Cons retained the “release at half-way” law. Boris tries to say “Not me, guv! I dindu nuttin” (tries to blame May and Cameron, too!).

Of course, even had the attacker been released 2 years or 3 years later, he still would have attacked. Boris is an idiot and his “idea” about amending the parole aspect would simply delay, not prevent.

Boris-idiot floundering under Marr’s not difficult questions. It must have stung Andrew Marr that he is thought less heavyweight than Andrew Neil. He is being a little more assertive than usual.

Boris-idiot is now blustering and talking nonsense (as usual). His metier is as a part-Jew public entertainer. I suppose that being a newspaper columnist, scribbling fact-free rubbish, is also his metier. Same thing, really. Or he could travel around the UK by train, meeting odd or unusual people etc, in the manner of a latter-day Michael Portillo.

Boris-idiot calls the Pakistani terrorist “this gentleman”! Ha ha! Corrects himself and next time calls him “that individual”. Come to think of it, Boris-idiot was not asked (and did not raise) the question of why this Pakistani terrorist, his family, his community, are even in the UK!

Marr’s interview with Boris-idiot is becoming a rout, unexpectedly. Boris-dork is gabbling, trying to soundbite every superficially-popular Con policy in the few minutes left, but Marr making the point that a plan for hospitals is not “36 new hospitals”. Marr also noted that the Conservatives have closed 300 magistrates’ and Crown courts over the past years. The County Courts were not mentioned. I myself used to appear as Counsel not only in the High Court and in the larger county courts, but also (2002-2008) at the small County Courts in, inter alia, Barnstaple, Penzance etc, now closed.

Marr also noted that the Conservatives have closed 500 public libraries.

Marr asks Boris-idiot about EU regulations which will affect Northern Ireland after Boris’s “BRINO” (Brexit In Name Only). Boris showing both ignorance and rudeness as his lying is prodded.

Marr asks Boris-idiot about his spending plans and how they might well be pie in the sky. He then prods Boris about Islamophobia and his own statements in the past.

Marr asks Boris why he has been avoiding Andrew Neil. Idiot refuses to say that he will be interviewed by Andrew Neil. Fact is, he’s scared…

Marr finishes by thanking “…you, Prime Minister”…

What a “car crash” for Boris-idiot! No wonder that he is running scared of Andrew Neil!

Now this!

Is Boris-idiot really so stupid that he thinks that he can just lift a thread of 16 tweets from a well-known Twitter account, and somehow no-one will notice?! He may be misplaced as “Prime Minister”, but fact he is in that role. He is also in the midst of a bitter election campaign. People will notice; they have noticed.

Well, after all, Boris-idiot was sacked for dishonesty at least four times...as trainee journalist, as journalist, as junior minister, and the only reason he avoided it when failing to do his job properly as Foreign Secretary was because Mrs May was weak and allowed him to hang on and then resign.

“Secret Barrister”, yesterday:

“Secret Barrister”, today:

I think that, for Boris Johnson, the General Election is coming two or three weeks too late. People are waking up on a larger scale now to Boris-idiot’s muddled stupidity, nastiness, dishonesty, incompetence, but most importantly lack of any real idea of how to get Britain from where it is to where it should be and still could be.

Even a week ago, the opinion polls, for what they are worth, were all showing the Conservative Party riding high and likely to get a stonking majority. Now, they begin to show a possible hung Parliament. The election is still very open, in reality, though I doubt that Labour could get a majority in any event.

It had to happen: at last Nicola Sturgeon has expressed a view akin to my own:

10 clear days until Polling Day. There is all to play for as far as the Conservatives and Labour are concerned. For Brexit Party, it’s already all over.

LibDems? Pretty much all over, though tactical voting may help them up to a point. No-one (very few anyway) will vote for Jo Swinson or LibDem policies generally. Even Remain partisans have mostly defected to Lab or even Con (on the basis that Boris-idiot’s “deal” is BRINO and not a full Brexit).

https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/politics/jo-swinson-not-hit-home-20999590

I have to say that, if Jo Swinson loses her own seat, I shall be laughing. Jo Swinson has proven herself not only a bad joke as LibDem leader (I don’t care at all about that, of course) but also a complete doormat for the Jewish lobby. Out with her! Raus!

Looking at the figures for East Dumbartonshire elections, what strikes me most forcibly is the decline of Labour, from nearly 56% in 1964 to just over 12% in 2015 (14.6% in 2017):

The “Leaders’ Debate” has just been held. I only saw extracts on the TV news, but based on that, I should say that Corbyn came over better; my subjective view, of course. Twitter reaction (for what it is worth) seems mixed, as does instant polling: Corbyn “more trustworthy” and “in touch with ordinary people”, Boris-idiot more “Prime Ministerial” (that Old Etonian gloss again?) and (it surprises me that the punters think so, though) more “likeable”

The Conservative Party leadership cadre is now infused with the deep dishonesty typical and characteristic of Boris Johnson, Dominic Cummings and the present Cabinet (eg the Jew Shapps, who sold members of the public dodgy business schemes and get-rich-quick plans, while posing under other names and even entering the Palace of Westminster using faked ID):

TV talking head Robert Peston saying that Corbyn “won”:

Journalist Isabel Oakeshott seems to be, reading between the lines, doing damage control for Boris-idiot, in effect.

Isabel Oakeshott, now the girlfriend of Brexit Party second in command Richard Tice, and like so many Brexit “Party” supporters (I am presuming, perhaps, that she is a supporter), seems to have one foot in Brexit Party and another in the Conservative Party. There is now little difference between the two, which is why Brexit Party is being washed down the plughole.

Retired fire chief and pro-Labour tweeter John Edwards blocked me on Twitter (before the Jews had me expelled in 2018). He said that I am “a dreadful fascist”! Yet here I am, reposting his tweet of this evening…

and from Alastair Campbell, one-time Blair spinmeister:

While only a LibDem like Tim Farron could imagine that Jo Swinson “won the debate” by virtue of not actually being there!

Update, 20 November 2019

I was reading some of what I wrote about Brexit Party earlier in the year. Well, much water under the bridge since then!

Brexit Party was polling around 12% when Farage decided to pull 317 Brexit Party candidates only 4 weeks before the election. That was followed by another 38. That, in return for a worthless promise from Boris Johnson, a man of no credibility, no integrity, a useless beneficiary of the UK’s sick political system.

Farage‘s ridiculous decision (taken unilaterally and without consultation with the candidates themselves, who had all paid to be considered as candidates) collapsed Brexit Party overnight. Farage killed his party as surely as if he had shot it in the neck.

Now, at time of writing, Brexit Party is in the polls at around 4% and, with 3 weeks to go, is not a serious contender in the General Election. Brexit Party might have won a number of seats while depriving the Conservatives (mainly) of a number of others, but now will be lucky to win even in those constituencies where it had a chance (e.g. Hartlepool).

Why did Farage destroy his own party? I am not the conspiracy theorist some imagine but I do speculate whether this is some kind of Russian operation.

Russia, we are told, wants the UK out of the EU (and, in Putin’s wildest dreams, NATO). Taking that as correct, it may be that Russian strategists were (are?) hoping for “hard Brexit” or “no deal Brexit” (real Brexit), because it weakens the EU (as part of the New World Order or “NWO”) and because a real Brexit might both cause economic/political discontent in the UK down the line and also stimulate Scottish nationalism, with the possibility that Scotland might break off from the UK, and then possibly (probably) decommission the nuclear missile submarine and air bases there. A break-up of the UK would be a stunning coup for the Russian state in terms of Atlantic geopolitics.

Still speculating, if an immediate “hard Brexit” seemed likely to be blocked by Parliament’s Remain majority in the event of another hung Parliament, then Russian strategists might have decided to strengthen Conservative Party chances by taking out Brexit Party.

Brexit Party is a dictatorship of one man, Farage. To take Brexit Party out of the General Election, Farage alone had to make that decision. He did. So the question is why did Farage take that decision? To my mind, there is no logical reason based on ordinary politics why Farage should take the word of a proven and continual liar such as Boris Johnson. On the other hand, if Farage is or has become an agent under control, then it makes perfect sense.

How do we know that Farage has not been promised (or even paid already) a large sum (£20M is good, £50M is even better) offshore? It makes sense in baldly venal terms but it also makes sense for Farage politically, if Farage has become convinced that a Boris prime ministership with a large majority would result, in a year or two, in a “hard” or even “no deal” Brexit. That way, Farage gets a secret fortune and the political result he has wanted to see since the early 1990s.

True, Farage is wealthy anyway (is supposed to be), but so what? As to whether the Russians would pay really large sums for such purposes…well, the wife of an “oligarch” paid the Conservative Party £160,000 just to have a tennis game with Boris Johnson and David Cameron-Levita. On that basis, £50M to change the whole course of British policy and strategy seems cheap at the price.

There is no direct evidence that Farage is an agent of the Russian state, but he has been shown to have close links with some leading “oligarchs” etc. The Russia of Putin is not the Soviet Union. It operates partly via the uber-wealthy who are beholden to Putin; the Soviet Union operated in this sense in a different way, bureaucratically, via the KGB and its predecessor agencies (NKVD etc), GRU and, pre-WW2, the Comintern.

As we have seen (google, or see my earlier blogs), Boris Johnson, like Farage, is or has been close to some Russian or Russian-Jew “oligarchs”. Then there is the role of Dominic Cummings, Johnson’s “adviser” (who however has been reported as having actually overruled Johnson on some occasions!). I blogged about Cummings a few months ago: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/

There have been those who have implied that Cummings is a kind of Russian agent. My previous assumption was that he might have been an agent of SIS (British agent rather than salaried officer, perhaps, but who knows?) for a while (when he was in Russia for about 3 years after having graduated from university) but again that was just my speculative thought. Still, one would not necessarily preclude the other, especially over time. Allegiances change, people change, or are suborned, or bought, or get angry and turn coat. These things happen.

I have no evidence that Farage has been paid a huge bribe by Russia; I have no evidence that Cummings has, either. Still, I do wonder. “Thoughts are duty free”, even in the EU…

There is, of course, also the fact that the British Intelligence assessment of some connected matters is not going to be released until after the General Election. It has been held up by Johnson and Cummings. Why?

Here’s something interesting! In 1993, Corbyn was in favour of paying blacks to clear out of the UK! Well, why not? Cheap at the price, really…

A few thoughts

I was listening in the car to the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme, broadcast in part from somewhere called Sheffield College. I have now looked it up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sheffield_College

To say that I was appalled by the quality of the three students called upon to discuss the election etc would be an understatement. All were studying Journalism, apparently. They had all been asked to listen to the Corbyn/Johnson debate.

The least impressive of the three was a young woman whose every fourth or fifth word was “like”. She had previously favoured “Jeremy” but thought that Johnson was clearer on what he wanted. I think that she may have just meant “more emphatic”. The others at least used “like” more sparingly. The sole young man was even able to string a sentence together, though not to much effect. All three were concerned about what the first young woman called “climate” [change] but one got the impression that all three knew as much about the issues as my cat’s left ear. The young man referred to the need to do something so that “we don’t have to wade through three feet of water”, though that would be unlikely except in a flood of Biblical proportions, Sheffield itself being situated at a height above sea level of between 95 feet and 1,798 feet:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheffield#Geography

Perhaps the reference was meant to be humorous.

Overall, I found the three students disturbing not because they seemed in any way rebellious or radical, but because they seemed to be such bland creatures. That, and the (apparent) palpable ignorance and inability to comprehend, think, or express themselves cogently. I was interested to hear that all three wanted to leave Sheffield (one said it is “boring”), though the “like…like…like” girl wanted to move to “London, Manchester or Salford”, a strange mixture. “How will you keep them down on the farm, once they’ve seen…Salford?”…Unlikely.

Politically, all were registered to vote, but none mentioned any issues that concerned them except “climate” and none had any ideas, it seemed, about that, just that it was of concern. All thought that life and career was and would be harder for them than it had been for their parents (in that I am inclined to agree, in general) but again none had any ideas about how to change that. Not one seemed to espouse any political ideology or philosophy. These were potential journalists, we were asked to believe. Depressing.

A further thought comes to mind, not for the first time. We are always being told by polling organizations and Remain whiners themselves that Remain partisans tend to be “better educated”, by which is meant “have degrees” etc. The trouble with that contention is that about half of all 18+ y o persons now go to some kind of college or “uni”. These degree mills pump out “graduates”, many of whom are in reality completely uneducated and uncultured, and in not a few cases plainly as thick as two short planks. In other words, this whole “Remain voters/supporters are better educated than people who want out of the EU” is a conclusion based on false premises.

For once I agree with faux-proletarian scribbler Dan Hodges (re. Corbyn in that debate; see below):

For my money (having seen only extracts, admittedly), Corbyn “won” because he did seem fairly ordinary, which must have been a shock to many who half-believed the fantasies of the popular Press and Boris Johnson to the effect that Corbyn is akin to Stalin, Trotsky, Lenin etc. I daresay that some viewers were surprised that Corbyn had only one head, and that it was not that of a demonic goat, complete with horns.

The laughter when Boris-idiot talked about trust and honesty said it all: Boris is not trusted, and actually not respected. He is not really treated by the public as a real Prime Minister. That means that he gets away with more, though. It works both ways.

Conservative Party lead is more apparent than real:

Update, 21 November 2019

https://news.sky.com/story/jo-swinson-risks-becoming-the-handmaiden-of-boris-johnsons-brexit-11866014

The LibDems released their manifesto to some msm publicity a day or so ago, but the interest was rather muted. It seems to me that the LibDems are becoming almost an irrelevance in this election. The retreat of Brexit Party has closed off quite a few LibDem possibilities in Con-held seats in the South of England (mainly), because the Conservative vote in those seats will have been shored up.

At the same time, the stance of the Liberal Democrats is “socially liberal, fiscally conservative”, following the lead of Jo Swinson herself, who after all held junior office during the 2010-2015 Con Coalition. That is not only the reverse of my own position, but also will not play in much of England, Wales or Scotland. I doubt that the LibDems will take many —if any— seats presently held by Labour.

In fact, under the pressure of the big-spend pledges of Lab and Con, the LibDems have loosened the reins of spending too, in their manifesto.

The LibDems have “bet the farm” on being the only significant party in the General Election to be clearly and firmly Remain (in England, that is; in Scotland, the SNP position is effectively the same).

Only about half of the voters favour Remain. Only about a third of those consider Brexit to be the most important issue in the election. So 15%-20% both favour Remain and think it the most important issue. It is noteworthy that the LibDems are currently running at between 12% and 18% in the various opinion polls. Admittedly, that is well above their polling of past months (and years).

There are seats in London and the South East where the LibDems may take a few seats, but in the big picture the LibDems are an irrelevance. I think that Leave supporters might vote either Con or Lab, whereas there are, no doubt, Remain supporters who think that Labour is sufficiently Remain to be supported, or alternatively that while the Conservatives are not Remain, they all the same are effectively so, via Boris Johnson’s BRINO (“Brexit In Name Only”) “deal”.

I wrote off the LibDems after 2011, but was only (?) 90% right. The LibDems survived like political cockroaches. I am tempted to write them off again, but they do have that ability to hang on somehow. FPTP voting is both their bane and their lifeline (as the “third choice” party).

An interesting psephological analysis about potential Conservative Party majorities, published 2 days ago:

https://inews.co.uk/news/politics/general-election-polls-2019-the-big-conservative-poll-lead-isnt-nearly-as-big-as-it-looks-1303606

The Jews on Twitter have been going mad for the past day, merely because Jeremy Corbyn, at the TV debate, pronounced the name of the Jew paedophile, rapist etc, Jeffrey Epstein, correctly. He pronounced it as “Epshtine” (“tine” like River Tyne), which is correct in normal German (and so Yiddish) usage. The Jews of Twitter are claiming that the name should be pronounced in the incorrect American manner, i.e. “Epsteen”. The Beatles had a manager called Brian Epstein, and I only ever heard of him referred to as “Epshtine” or “Epstine”, never “Epsteen”. The funny thing is that broadcast msm drones in the UK, at least on the BBC, are running so scared of the Jews that today every last one of them, e.g. on the Radio 4 Today Programme, was using “steen” and not “shtine” or even “stine”.

Labour’s manifesto has been released, promising a building programme: 100,000 council houses per year for years. Well, there is a housing shortage of very serious proportions, and there is also a serious problem of abuse of the lives of tenants by landlords. However, much of the problem in this sector is caused by the migration-invasion, i.e. mass immigration, combined with births to immigrants.

Labour wants more immigration, even though immigration is running at something like 500,000 a year. Net? Officially 258,000 in 2018, but that leaves out illegals, and even the government estimates that there are 1.5 MILLION of those pests alone in the UK now! Also, “net immigration” conceals the fact that virtually all “permanent” immigrants are non-white, whereas many leaving the UK are white English, Scottish, Welsh people fleeing to Australia and elsewhere, as well as EU nationals returning home.

There is almost no point in building hundreds of thousands of houses if most will go to migrant-invaders (and so encourage even more to try to move here). Britain cannot absorb (net) a quarter of a million or more new “inhabitants” every single year, meaning a population the size of a city such as Southampton, and remain a decent or even half-decent country.

Film has emerged of aggressive “security” staff attacking a Brexit Party leafletter at a Morrison’s supermarket:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10391593/bully-morrisons-security-guard-throws-brexit-party-candidate/

Britain 2019. I suppose that the thing that surprises me most, looking at the report, is that there are still people prepared to waste their time (let alone get assaulted) canvassing or leafletting for Brexit Party.

Now that I have seen more of the Labour manifesto,

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50511003

I am thinking (leaving substance aside and considering it from the electoral point of view) “why not”? Labour is in a bit of a hole in the opinion polls; it cannot do much worse (because around 25% would vote Labour even if it proposed copying the policies of Pol Pot or of Trotsky’s War Communism). Labour’s struggle is to persuade another 10% to 15% to put their crosses by Labour on the ballot paper.

On the above premise, Labour may as well be radical and own it. It just might work.

Meanwhile, “Mainstream”, the new Jewish-funded anti-Corbyn organization, has come out with a spoof ad featuring the Jewish actress Maureen Lipman. She “threatened” to leave the UK and go to Israel or the USA if Corbyn became Labour leader. Oddly enough, she is still here…still “threatening” to emigrate.

John Woodcock, the disgraced sex pest former MP, who has mental problems, is going to be, or already is, the Con-appointed “special envoy” on “countering violent extremism”, despite his completely partisan, biased ideological position. In other words, someone who is as good as an agent of influence for Israel is going to be snooping on and working against those British people struggling in the front ranks of the socio-political battle of our time. Woodcock is a leading member or supporter of “Mainstream”, which in this election is trying to weaken Labour’s chances.

Update, 22 November 2019

The Daily Mail examines the effect of Brexit Party on Labour-held seats in the North of England:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7711253/Will-Brexit-Party-help-Boris-win-Shock-poll-finds-Tories-13-points-ahead-ultra-Leave-seat.html

I have to say that, after the Brexit Party shambles during this election campaign, I struggle to see why anyone would still vote Brexit Party, but there it is. I suppose that the same mugs voted LibLabCon all their lives, so why not?

A second “Leaders’ Debate” will not now be held, because Boris Johnson has cried off. He failed to win the last one and has now blinked.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/channel-4-cancels-general-election-20931983

As I have repeatedly blogged, Labour is now the party of the non-Europeans (meaning mainly the “blacks and browns”), public service workers and those dependent on State benefits:

Naturally, it is trite to say “Mrs May and the Conservatives were ahead at this point during the 2017 General Election campaign [and therefore the Boris Johnson Con lead in this election campaign will have gone by Polling Day].” Why? Because Mrs May had built up or rather puffed up a brittle bubble around the “strong and stable” mantra. When she made a U-turn on elderly social care and seemed unable to do more than shriek “Nothing has changed! Nothing has changed!”, the whole Theresa May, Conservative Party “strong and stable” bubble just burst. Not even overnight. At once.

This time round? So far, no one defining moment of that sort. One may happen between now and Polling Day (3 weeks minus 1 day from today; 20 days), but part of Boris Johnson’s strength is that no-one actually expects Boris-idiot to be consistent, or honest, or even particularly —or at all— competent. Everyone knows that he is a liar, an incompetent, a philanderer, a money-grasper etc. It is therefore hard to see what event or behaviour would be so calamitous as to actually surprise the public. Johnson has actually weaponized his own inability to be a proper Prime Minister.

Having said the above, the Conservatives (like Labour) are piling up extra votes in seats which they were going to hold anyway. It is not impossible to see floating voters in marginal English and Welsh constituencies being interested by Labour’s policy offer. Add that to likely Con losses in Scotland and London and it is possible to think that a hung Parliament is as possible as a Con majority.

Labour cannot get a majority, in my view, but it can still prevent Boris-idiot from getting one.

Seems that Labour’s tax plans etc mean that people in the top 5% of earners will have to pay a small amount more in tax (supposedly £10 per month, which seems very modest). There has been argument over whether people earning £80,000 pa really are in the top 5%, following a Question Time spat. There has also been confusion over whether the tranche of taxpayers affected will be those only in the top 5% or in the top 50%.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/bbc-question-time-man-who-20935155https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/bbc-question-time-man-who-20935155

Twitter exploded.

If ever there is an area where the devil is in the detail it is that of taxation.

Of course, it is all too easy to feel that “I make x-amount per year and I’m certainly not rich/wealthy/affluent.” As long as ago as 2001, I myself made well over £80,000 gross (but that was that year; my income was always either “feast or famine”, the latter almost literally at times), so in today’s 2019-money-value maybe £140,000 gross (educated guess) yet I did not feel wealthy, though certainly not poor either. Today? I am genuinely near-broke! The point is that whether you feel “well-off” is very subjective (in my own case, a fairly large chunk of my earnings in late 2001-early 2002 went on just renting a quite modest detached house in the London area).

I may have been in the top couple of percent in terms of income, but did not feel wealthy or particularly privileged (and my assets were few, another important point: I had little beyond a 2,000-book library, a Rolex watch and a —rather modest— car).

But leading lawyer Jolyon Maugham tweeted: “Fact. Earning £80,000 a year puts you well into the top *3%* of adult earners.”

He added: “£80,000 – what an MP earns – puts you into the top 3% but it doesn’t give you the lifestyle the English middle class once had.

“No private school, no comfortable house (certainly not in London), and so on. What we used to call a middle class existence is increasingly unobtainable.

“I’m not playing a violin for him – about 97% have it worse – but it does tell a story about how all the gains are going to an infinitesimally small number of people and how (in a way) everyone else can be cross with justification.” [from the Daily Mirror report]

How true. What matters is the lifestyle that comes out at the other end. The (?) relatively modest school which I (and my brothers) attended in the early 1970s now costs about £18,000 per pupil per year! (they do have bursaries etc)

https://www.rbcs.org.uk/admissions/fees-scholarships-and-bursaries/

Likewise, the semi-detached Victorian villa in the Little Venice section of Maida Vale, West London, where I spent many years (on and off) from age 19 to age 40, and which was valued at £100,000 in 1980, is now “worth” about £4 million! A 40x increase in “value” in 40 years! Hugely more than general inflation, let alone average pay, over those 40 years.

The fact is that in the UK, a tiny tiny number of incredibly rich people own almost everything and have incomes (and capital gains) in the millions and tens of millions, as well as assets in the tens of millions, hundreds of millions and thousands of millions (billions). They are a legitimate target for taxation and for at least partial expropriation.

However, it is clear that, in order to achieve social goals, any radical government will have to tax the ordinary Joe too. Ideas such as raising tax and NI thresholds are crude and help the “better-off” as much or more than the low earners. A far better way is to have no thresholds at all, and to give necessary help to the poor via other means (benefits such as child benefit, Basic Income etc). It is better to get £1 a head from a million people than £1,000 a head from a relative few. Why not both?

It may be that indirect taxation is better, but that has to be carefully handled if it is not to be retrogressive.

The present General Election exposes the rot in our society and political system. Few real ideas (that are any good) about how to deal with what must be dealt with: health, social care, alienation, funding for government, social problems generally, mass immigration. Labour’s ideas are the best of those on offer, but still either inadequate or half-baked.

Update, 23 November 2019

The latest opinion poll (via Panelbase) gives intentions as Con 42%, Lab 32%, LibDem 14%, Brexit Party 3%, Greens 3%. Electoral Calculus makes that a Con gain of 4 seats overall, but still resulting in the Cons being 4 short of a majority.

The previous poll I saw, from another organization, and a day ahead of the above poll, gave the Cons a majority of 36! Yet the figures for that one were not far different: Cons 42%, Lab 30%, LibDems 15%, Brexit Party 4%. A few percent higher or lower, especially for Labour vis a vis Conservative, makes a very big difference.

The huge recent Con lead in the polls has narrowed (in both of those above polls) but the Cons are still well ahead in percentage terms, obviously. They do seem to be feeling the pace now, though: Boris refusing to debate on TV again. The previous debate might have destroyed Corbyn and so Labour. It did not do that.

It is very clear that Brexit Party is finished. I think that we have seen the end, not only of Brexit Party, but also of Nigel Farage. I am now expecting the effect of Brexit Party on the overall General Election results to be minimal. Opinion polling in a few Northern English seats seems to indicate that Brexit Party may take enough votes from Labour to let the Conservatives in here and there (eg Great Grimsby). Maybe, maybe not.

As to the LibDems, I think that they will end up on 12-13 December with fewer than 20 seats and possibly fewer than 10. Some commentators are predicting 30+ and one bold fellow has said 100! My own sense is that the LibDems will win a few seats but lose more, including those contested by most of the ex-Change UK defectors.

In the absence of a truly social-national party, the choice offered to the voters is dire, and the only parties really contesting the election in England and Wales are Lab and Con (I fully expect the SNP to win the vast majority of seats north of the Border).

Update, 24 November 2019

Ha ha! Farage says that “Labour is bombing all over the country” and that Corbyn is a poor leader. Well, there is some truth in both statements, but what strikes me forcefully is how lacking in self-awareness Farage is!

Labour may be (to some extent) “bombing”, but Brexit Party (or should that be “Party”) has already bombed all over the country. It started off at 15% in some opinion polls, but is now at either 4% or 3% in all the ones I have seen. It does not have far to go to reach the 1%-vote depths of the joke “parties” such as the Monster Raving Loonies and the Christian-This-Or-Thats (not to mention the fake “nationalist” joke-parties such as “For Britain”, “Britain First” etc, though they struggle to get even 1% of any vote).

[I should add that, the last I saw, “Britain First” had been deregistered as a party by the Electoral Commission anyway, so would be unable to stand candidates under a party name]

As for “leadership”, Corbyn may be no Adolf Hitler, but Farage has just betrayed his most loyal followers by standing down about 360 of them so that Conservative Party candidates (including Remainers!) have a better chance of winning the seats that they are contesting! Is that “leadership”?

Now Farage is talking about forming yet another “party”! He says that it will be a reform party to “drain the Westminster swamp” and may be called Reform Party. Now, if only he had done that 6 months ago and joined it with Brexit Party…Had he done that then, he might have been in a different and better place now.

One can never easily write off Farage, and he sees the way the wind is blowing, but who would trust him now?

First-time voters hold key in 56 marginals, analysis shows”

“Intergenerational Foundation report comes as 670,000 young people registered to vote in seven days” [The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/24/first-time-voters-hold-key-in-56-marginals-analysis-intergenerational-foundation

An interesting report. Hundreds of thousands of young people (defined as the under-35s) have registered to vote (670,000 in the past week alone) under the new stricter criteria. About half are under-25. Virtually none support the Conservative Party: fairly recent polling indicated that as few as 4% of the under-25s support the Conservative Party, and only about 15% of under-35s.

As I blogged recently, if those of all ages who do not vote, about a third of all those eligible, found a reason to vote, that might well change politics in the UK in a radical and even revolutionary way.

Under Britain’s first-past-the-post electoral system some votes really are much more important than others; in any given election only a small minority of the most marginal constituencies actually change hands,” said Angus Hanton, the co-founder of the IF. “Winning British elections is about winning marginals.” [The Guardian]

Of course, only the marginal constituencies really count, but if all the unregistered people (often discontented, or malcontents) were involved, many more seats would be marginal, though I understand perfectly well why many do not bother to vote.

First-time voters could unseat their MP in 56 marginal seats across the country, according to an exclusive analysis of the 1.2m new electors who have come of age in England and Wales since the 2017 general election. Thirty of these seats are held by the Conservative party, 20 are held by Labour, four by the Liberal Democrats (almost a quarter of their seats) and two by Plaid Cymru.” [The Guardian]

As stated, 670,000 new voters have recently registered, many in the past few days alone. The deadline for registration is at midday on Tuesday 26 November:

https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

Anyone 16+ can register, but only those 18+ can vote. There is therefore an uncertainty over the effect of those recent registrations, though it seems sensible to assume that most recent registrations are from intending 12 December voters.

There will be a scramble to register (which can take only 5 minutes if done online). Labour will be desperate to get as many as possible under-35s registered. The Conservatives must be hoping that few will bother. Conservative Party support is mainly from those over 65 and almost entirely from those over 45. I notice that Boris-idiot is now promising to keep the “Triple Lock” on pensions, something Philip Hammond wanted to scrap.

The 2016 Referendum had a large age division. This has now been imported into politics generally.

Those (so far) 670,000 new voters are split, very roughly, into a thousand voters per constituency. The fact that they registered recently suggests that they are intending to vote. Most (in England and Wales) will vote Labour. Few will vote Conservative.

As far as persons are concerned who have turned 18 since the last general election in 2017, they number about 1.2M people. There must be a few, perhaps several, hundred thousand still unregistered. There is a lot to play for here, in the next day and a half.

There are dozens of Westminster seats which were won in 2017 with majorities under 400: https://commonslibrary.parliament.uk/insights/ge2017-marginal-seats-and-turnout/

It can be seen that the effect of 1,000 or 1,500 new voters per constituency may be very significant, especially if most are going to vote Labour. It could change everything.

Not that I favour further reduction of the voting age. Switzerland began to decline once it

  1. allowed women the vote; but more importantly
  2. allowed people younger than 28 (the age is now 18) to vote.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voting_in_Switzerland#Voting_qualifications

I believe that the age rubric (maybe the sex bar too) was changed in the 1990s, maybe late 1980s.

I see tweets from (mainly Labour) ladies saying such things as “my son of 12 (this was a real tweet, btw) is very political and loves Jeremy Corbyn; the age threshold should be 16.” What can one say? I was quite political and also quite intelligent at 12, but people are generally immature until they are 28. I myself was. It is not so much a question of intellect or knowledge as of commonsense and a greater or higher level of wisdom than the vast majority have at 16, 18, or 21.

However, it is interesting, though disturbing, from the sociological point of view, that there is a growing infantilization of politics. Even more disturbing is that it affects the old as well as the young.

On the “Conservative” side, one sees responses on Twitter and in newspaper comments columns to the effect that, for example, if there is poverty, “they should get a job“, when in fact much UK poverty is in-work poverty (and not everyone can get work, let alone reasonably well-paid work).

On the more “Labour” side, we see remarks, for example, to the effect that mass immigration makes no difference to pay, benefits, services etc (except to improve them!), rail, road congestion etc. There is a wilful refusal to see the truth and a wish to believe that, with one wave of his wand, Magic Grandfather and/or the State can just “magic” high pay and benefits for all. “Luxury Communism”…

ClVU6MSWgAAmfK6

See below:

The “brown” (presumably a Pakistani of some type) knows more than many (typically) weak and brainwashed pro-multikulti white British people: he obviously feels that the UK belongs to the migrant-invaders like him (whether arriving in rubber boats in Kent and Sussex, arriving as “family members” at airports, as “asylum seekers”, or just born to black/brown mothers here in the UK). The w** assumes that the white man is the unwanted minority person. Soon he will be. Wake up, British people! It is nearly too late.

That charming scene from a “British” street also tends to make my point about Labour being now largely the party of the “blacks and browns”…

Update, November 25 2019

Fed into Electoral Calculus (with SNP assumed to get 50% in Scotland), that most recent poll would give a Conservative majority in the Commons of 28 (with 21 more Con MPs, 45 fewer Labour MPs). Boris-idiot would be well pleased with a majority of 28. Having said that, most polls until now have forecast larger majorities. The forecast majorities are ever-smaller (with a few exceptions).

There is one day left (exactly 24 hours at time of writing) in which Labour might encourage students and others to register to vote; the cutoff point is 1200 hrs tomorrow (Tuesday).

As for Polling Day, 12 December, there are now 16 clear days left before the polls open. Does Labour still have a chance of heading off a Conservative majority?

The minor parties (apart from the SNP) are now where they will be. Brexit “Party” is washed up completely and is very likely either to win any seats or even to be very important either way to whether the Conservatives or Labour win here or there. The best chance is probably in Hartlepool, being contested by Richard Tice, Farage’s 2-i-c. Even there, Labour probably has a better chance.

The LibDems are stuck on or below 15%. In their case, what matters is whether they can create a Schwerpunkt (concentration of forces) in any one constituency. They have a few good chances, but I still think that they will end up with fewer than 20 seats, quite possibly fewer than 10.

Labour’s chances rely on appealing to floating or new voters in marginal seats. I would not write Labour off just yet despite the dawning realization of its supporters and the public that the traditional raisons d’etre of Labour are fast disappearing, indeed have disappeared, and with them the traditional dyed-in-the-wool loyalty of the previously monolithic Labour vote in the North and elsewhere.

Labour’s policy offers are in essence attractive to many, but Labour is held back, first by its recent (past 20 years) black/brown emphasis (personified of course by Diane Abbott), secondly by uncertainty over whether Labour can deliver. Part of that is the surely correct assumption of most voters that Labour is not going to win a Commons majority (as a bet, it now stands at 40/1 on Betfair betting exchange).

It remains possible for Labour to deny the Conservatives a majority if it can get its vote out, and if the “young” (under-35s) vote in greater percentages than heretofore. If, if, if. Even here, in terms of “getting the vote out”, the Conservatives have a built-in advantage, in that a high proportion of their vote will be postal, Conservative voters tending to be elderly or at least in late middle age.

Despite everything saying “the Conservatives will get a solid majority”, I am still not sure. The “glorious uncertainty” of Britain’s electoral system, the fact that a small number of voters in a relatively small number of constituencies will decide the matter, make this still an open contest in terms of whether Boris-idiot, surely the most egregiously ill-suited Prime Minister in modern times (since the 19thC at least), will get the real power he so richly fails to merit.

It is now after 2200 hrs, so Labour has only 14 hours in which to persuade those who support Labour, but are not yet registered to vote, to register. The election result may hang on that alone.

Update, 26 November 2019

Correction: the deadline for voter registration is midnight tonight, not midday as previously thought. This could be crucial in stopping the Conservatives from getting a majority. A million new voters have registered recently.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50544602

The main news on Zionist-controlled msm (BBC, Sky etc) is that the Chief Rabbi has (not for the first time) declared not only himself and his immediate cabal but the “Jewish community” as a whole to be hostile to Labour. All news outlets are carrying this as the main news item.

CSrYbsNU8AATLhJ

DNe0-uXXcAAlTCh

The Chief Pharisee had the damned cheek to refer to “our country“, and even “the soul of our nation” (“our”?!), meaning the UK, despite the fact that he was born in South Africa and lived only in Israel and Ireland before coming to the UK in the 1990s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ephraim_Mirvis#Early_life_and_education

Hopefully, this nasty individual’s intervention will merely increase the Labour vote and will in any case awaken many naive people to the important issue of Zionist interference in our political and social life.

Not that my opinion of Labour is very high, au contraire, but in this election, looking at the possibility of a Conservative majority and an elected Con dictatorship under Jewish and Israeli control (Boris-idiot, Sajid Javid, Priti Patel, the Jew Shapps and all other Cabinet members are Zionists; some are actual agents of Israel), Labour’s vote in this General Election must be maximized.

16 November 2019

The Sun “newspaper” report about Farage standing down another 38 candidates:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10357962/boris-johnson-election-brexit-party-candidates/

Only a few of those 38 constituencies are likely to elect a Conservative MP by reason of Brexit Party‘s withdrawal, but every seat counts at present. The total of seats withdrawn from Brexit “Party” contestation is now 355.

Apart from that, and despite the fact that I do not and never have supported Brexit Party (or its previous incarnation, UKIP), I feel almost infuriated myself that Farage has let down his thousands of troops in this way. God knows how they themselves feel! At least there was some logic, however mistaken, in the decision of Field Marshal Paulus to surrender at Stalingrad. In the case of Farage, his “army” was intact and fairly up for the fight, with at least some prospect of isolated successes here and there.

I discussed these matters in greater detail in my last blog thread about the election.

The polling experts seem agreed that Labour has “close to zero” chance of a Commons majority, a fact obvious to most people, surely, and for months if not years. The well-known Professor Curtice says that any narrowing of the Conservative lead below 8 points will place the result in hung Parliament territory; Kellner of YouGov, however, thinks that the present strong Conservative lead predicts a Con majority.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10358196/jeremy-corbyn-election-defeat/

I always go with the famous remark of Harold Wilson about a week being a long time in British politics. Only 25 clear days (plus Polling Day) now remain, but that is enough, dependent on events, to change the overall picture.

Police now examine whether the Conservative Party has rigged the election:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/16/police-assessing-claims-that-tories-offered-peerages-to-brexit-party

The “Labour Party offers free broadband” story is interesting. The msm have been unsure whether to laugh at it, regard it as a serious policy and/or attack it as almost Leninist.

It seems to me that there is an age differential here. A high proportion of those of pensionable age (and I should add, for those unaware, that I myself am now 63, incredibly) probably regard this Labour policy offering as mad or as irrelevant. Many of that demographic either do not use the Internet (quite a few have never used it) or use it only for reading emails and/or for reading the Daily Mail online. Most people of that age, say 65+, can easily afford a broadband service if they want one. Most people over 65 vote, the vast majority in fact, and most of those who do vote, vote Conservative.

When we move to the under-35s and especially the under-25s, we see that, in the 18-24 age group, only about 4% (acc. to some polls) support the Conservatives, and most do not vote. These are they who have never known a world without the Internet. Many are not affluent. A proportion are downright poor.

You can see from the above that those who disparage the Labour “free broadband” idea are those who have no problem getting good Internet provision anyway, who may or may not use the Internet at all, and for whom the Internet is a add-on to their world, not a sine qua non. Also, they are those who probably vote Conservative.

As to those young or younger people who mostly do not vote Conservative, and who probably like the concept of free Internet service, the big question is whether they like it enough both to register to vote and then actually to vote (Labour).

Will this make any difference? A question which may only be answered on 12 December. Britain Elects has this:

A popular policy, in outline.

In fact, this is one of Labour’s better ideas and I do not say so only because I was tweeting about free universal Internet access years ago (before the Jews had me expelled from the Twitter timewasting echo-chamber in 2018). I was putting the idea out there from about 2012.

If Britain is going to become a high-quality tech state, it needs fast and universal broadband, inter alia. It would enable areas more remote, less wealthy, more rural (in some cases. all three) to foster new service and retail enterprises and industries. It also helps to educate the population, educate in the wide sense.

There are other reasons to support the idea of universally-available free broadband. In the Britain of 2019, Internet access is not available freely to all, yet most freelance or other jobs and even most applications for jobs require Internet access. Many State benefit applications now require Internet access. Also, of course, even things which do not require Internet access (e.g. taxing a road vehicle) are done cheaper and easier online.

Some people say “Internet access is available from libraries”, but

  • not always free of charge;
  • only if there is a local library (many have been closed by reason of “Conservative” cuts since 2010);
  • only during (often very limited) opening hours;
  • often using outdated computers bought or donated years ago to the libraries.

Such limited access cannot be compared to 24/7 access free at home.

Now to the immigration question. Here is a typical tweet from a System/msm journalistic source:

The idea that (recent non-white) “immigration has been good for Australia” is news to anyone who knows the country. I was there as a child for nearly three years (1967 to late 1969), attended school there (Middle Harbour PS and North Sydney Boys’ High School), had and have relatives there etc. The non-white immigration (since the 1980s) has been disastrous, though the “business community” love it (as in the UK). Of course they do! Lower unit labour costs, more consumers, higher rents etc. For most people though, higher costs for everything (food, property prices and rents etc), lower pay, more stress on roads and all services. When I lived in Australia, the population was 12 million, Sydney about 2.5M of that. Now, 5M or more in the Sydney area, and 25 million in the whole of Australia.

Mass immigration is often not at all positive:

I have not revisited Australia since 1969, but relatives are always going backwards and forwards (four were here recently, one is still here), so I do hear impressions of the situation. About the non-economic consequences too…

The truth is that virtually all System msm outlets in the UK push the “immigration is great for the UK” line. The poor British people, who know that that is nonsense (and that knowledge applies even more to those aged over 60) are ignored, laughed at, ranted at and lied to (etc).

“Law and order”. Saw the piece below (first pub. a year ago), which puts “Shadow Home Secretary” and serial ignoramus Diane Abbott in her place.

https://emergency-services.news/?p=5778

Diane Abbott must be worth a million votes…to the Conservatives!

Update, 17 November 2019

Latest polling (Deltapoll) puts Con on 45%, Lab on only 30%; LibDems 11%, Brexit Party 6%.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7693553/Boris-Johnson-surges-ahead-Jeremy-Corbyn-polls.html

YouGov has reported similar results, though BMG Research says Con 37%, Lab 29%, LibDem 16%, Brexit Party 9%:

SavantaComRes polling:

According to my use of Electoral Calculus, the superficially-similar Deltapoll and YouGov polling would lead, in an election, to divergent results (Con majorities of 110 and 152 respectively), though both showing huge Con majorities all the same.

However, the not dissimilar SavantaComRes polling would leave the Conservative Party 14 MPs short of a Commons majority, worse than the 2017 result. In British general elections, the devil really is in the detail.

We see Labour support slowly growing now. In my opinion, this is mainly a “Stop Boris” surge rather than an “Oh, Jeremy Corbyn!” uplift. Those who hate the Conservative Party as it now is are beginning to see that a vote for Labour is their only option in most cases, except in Con/LibDem marginals.

The narrative has moved on from a purely Brexit analysis. Immigration has moved up the agenda. While in theory this plays better for Con than Lab, voters can see that huge numbers have invaded the UK unimpeded even since 2010. Labour cannot be blamed for that.

As cold weather advances, the deficiencies of the NHS come to the fore. That plays better for Labour, overall. The same is true for problems with rail, roads, utility bills etc.

I could hardly believe that, in the past week, Corbyn spoke in support of Gypsies and Irish tinker “travellers”, and against the British Army of the 1950s that fought the evil murderers and torturers of the Mau Mau and its support base, in Kenya. I think that part of Corbyn is not a Labour Party leader trying to speak for the British people (and get elected) but is still a campaigning Islington-residing backbench MP best described as cartoon semi-Marxist. As election speeches, those were a disaster. Fortunately for Corbyn, few voters likely to be swayed even heard or read of them.

Labour’s policy offers of free broadband, more regulation and possible part-nationalization of rail and utilities are meeting with at least some interest from voters, in the teeth of a completely one-sided msm barrage. I think that the days when some semi-literate “newspaper” like the Sun could make or break a campaign are gone. The newspapers are scarcely read anyway, these days, and the outdated “leader” pages and editorials are as out of date and irrelevant as the sermons of John Wesley.

It may be that, except in Con/LibDem marginals, the LibDem vote will mainly migrate to Labour as a way of stopping the Conservatives from winning.

As I see it, there is still a good chance for Labour to hold on to the extent that the Conservatives are denied a majority. If that happens, then the Conservative MPs will have no incentive at all to hang on to this idiotic clown, Boris Johnson, as leader. They only wanted him in the first place because he was supposed to be able to reach out to voters normally resistant to the Conservative Party. If he cannot do that, he is toast.

More from Professor Curtice:

“Ho” news…

Oh dear. Rather awkward…

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/17/arcuri-says-johnson-cast-her-aside-like-one-night-stand

Aforesaid “ho” gets free foreign trips and £126,000 taxfree from the British taxpayer (thanks to Boris-idiot) and she’s a “victim”, it seems!

Arcuri says: “It’s caused nothing but utter chaos, destruction and sheer disappointment on many fronts … and as a result I am the collateral damage that’s left behind. I mean the prime minister hasn’t been affected. He puts his head in the sand and looks the other way.” [Guardian]

Boris-idiot leaves chaos and confusion behind him, always. Well, does one expect anything else? After all…(((you know)))…

Recent tweets of note:

The problem (either way) in talking about Labour policies is that it is all but impossible for Labour to get a self-standing Commons majority, so the best it can hope for is a minority government propped up by SNP, odds and sods and maybe (Jo Swinson notwithstanding) the LibDems. It is very unlikely that Labour’s most controversial policies will ever become law and/or be put into effect.

My feeling is that the main two parties are at last starting to converge in the polls, though at time of writing the Conservative Party is clearly still ahead both in headline poll terms and on the majority of issues. However, with 24 clear days (plus polling day itself) to go, there is yet time for the voters to be less sure that they want Boris Johnson to get a real electoral mandate.

The election is clearly the Conservative Party’s to lose, but it may be that, despite Labour support collapsing all over the country, that is what will happen, resulting in another hung Parliament. If LibDems, whose preferred candidate in a given constituency has no realistic chance, switch tactically to Labour, if Labour supporters whose candidate has no chance switch to LibDem candidates (in Con/LibDem marginals), and if former Brexit Party supporters prefer a Lab vote to a Con one (as may be the case now in the North and elsewhere), then a hung Parliament is once again a not-unlikely outcome.

NHS moving up the political agenda:

Update, 18 November 2019

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7696323/Jeremy-Corbyn-refuses-FIVE-TIMES-say-wants-leave-EU.html

Once again, the msm tries to make out that Corbyn is not far from being a Russian agent (ironic, in view of the storm around Russian money and Boris-idiot…). In fact, getting rid of Trident is a perfectly respectable policy position. Michael Portillo, a former Defence Secretary in the John Major Conservative Party government of the 1990s, has said that Trident is not useful. That is right. Trident is hugely expensive and, equally important, cannot be used independently of the USA. It is not an independent deterrent. It does not do what it says on the tin. Were Trident ever used, it would guarantee the complete or almost-complete destruction of the UK, a geographically-small state  (unlike the USA, Russia and China).

As to mass immigration, yes, there Corbyn is vulnerable (and seems unable to dissemble about it). He actually thinks that mass immigration is good for the UK. In his world, his milieu, people probably agree. His problem is that most British people do not agree.

Corbyn’s only defence on immigration is that he himself has been so far responsible for none of it. Au contraire, it was the msm-approved, Jewish lobby-approved, “Centrist”, Blair and Brown governments that deliberately imported millions of immigrants (migrant-invaders) with the express though secret intention of destroying the UK’s race and culture. Whistleblowers have since revealed the truth, and that the ones really pushing for mass immigration were Jewish, including Barbara Roche and Phil Woolas (both now disgraced and removed from Parliament): https://www.migrationwatchuk.org/press-article/83/was-mass-immigration-a-conspiracy

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/tony-blair/12175813/Tony-Blair-accused-of-conspiracy-over-mass-immigration.html

In fact, the “Conservatives” have always secretly been pro-immigration too, in government. Look at the years 2010-2019…Big business loves mass immigration: lower unit labour costs, more consumers etc.

Labour tries now to move the news agenda on, away from Brexit and away from Corbyn’s personality and controversial connections:

An example of what “Conservative” misrule has brought to the UK in the past decade:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/man-collapses-dies-job-centre-20906100

Corbyn cannot be blamed for this:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7697805/Four-boats-carrying-39-migrants-Britain-yesterday.html

Britain is being invaded, by (inter alia) boats crossing the channel. Hundreds daily; and all Priti Patel (posing as Home Secretary) does is to make “tough” statements meaning precisely nothing. She also wants to bring in more Indians “legally”.

More “ho” news:

Interesting piece re. Brexit “Party”:

https://bylinetimes.com/2019/11/15/the-great-brexit-party-swindle/

“The Conservatives might win Bolsover”

https://inews.co.uk/news/general-election-2019-miners-vote-tory-bolsover-derbyshire-shirebrook-brexit-1262531?fbclid=IwAR2tzXu8qo_g787XwZKYzHAwZE7rYo6AX4V6wTtTr-HYbU3lXGvhkwDl5HI

The report is interesting both in itself and in its implications.

Bolsover is or was one of the rock-solid Labour safe seats.

I have never thought much of Dennis Skinner. For me, he personifies a kind of old Labour wilful ignorance that is best buried: in favour of the disastrous 1939-45 war against Germany, wilfully ignorant about Stalin’s Soviet Union etc. A cartoon view of history, especially 20th Century history. No real ideas about how to improve Britain (if Skinner ever had any original or interesting ideas, I never heard them). Just a grouchy surliness and defeatism posing as “socialist” “resistance”. I dislike many of his stances on social policy too:

Skinner has voted for equalisation of the age of consent, civil partnerships, adoption rights for same-sex couples, to outlaw discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, and for same sex couples to marry,[15] and has a strongly pro-choice stance on abortion. On 20 January 1989, he talked out a move to reduce the number of weeks at which termination of a pregnancy can be legally performed in Britain by moving a writ for the Richmond by-election.[16]”

[Wikipedia]

Skinner is of course rather old now [b.1932] and is not really au fait with much of contemporary life:

In 2014, he was voted off Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC).[7] In the same year, he stated that he has never sent an email and does not have a Twitter account.[27]” [Wikipedia]

Having said that, Skinner is said to be a very good constituency MP. He is a rarity in the Commons in coming from a genuine old proletarian background: mother a cleaner, father a coal miner, and he himself a coal miner for 15 years (though he claims 20) before he became the President of the NUM in Derbyshire aged only 32 (he later became a councillor at Clay Cross, Derbyshire and attended Ruskin College, Oxford for a while). He has been MP for Bolsover since 1970.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/jul/30/dennis-skinner-never-done-cross-party-stuff-nature-of-the-beast-documentary

Despite being a bit of a self-caricature, Skinner is —at least mainly— authentic. He is not a careerist, not corrupt, not an expenses cheat, fraud or freeloader, though his personal partner for the past 22 years has been his long term researcher/assistant, an American Jewish woman now 70 called Lois Blasenheim, said in 2012 to be then paid ~£35,000 a year (considerably more now —up to £50,000— if still en poste) via Skinner’s expenses. Crucially though, she was his assistant prior to the personal relationship; i.e, no scandal. In any case, Ms. Blasenheim is said to be wealthy in her own right and, when she met Skinner, had a house in Carlyle Square, London, where houses (now, at time of writing) average £8M in value. I have no idea whether she and Skinner now live there. Probably.

Skinner’s views are genuinely held. On the negative side, he is in a mental-ideological straitjacket, and has no really developed ideas about how to evolve UK society (let alone Europe or the world) to higher levels. He is obviously unable even to comprehend the many bad things that mass immigration has brought to the UK over past decades, and I have never heard anything of his against the Jewish lobby in the UK, though he did vote against the Iraq war.

The importance of Bolsover is, of course, as symbol. Labour has, in the past, scored vote-shares as high as 80% (1950; 1966) and was still getting well over 50% and usually over 60% (even over 70%) until 2010, since when the Labour vote has stuck around 50%.

50% is still very high, but the Conservative vote, before 2017 always below 30% and often below 20%, rose to over 40% that year.

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

Now?

It wasn’t the Conservatives who shut the pits,” he adds. “It was Arthur Scargill who let us down by not having a national ballot. They were tough times for us. We had to come out and couldn’t go back.

“We were Labour people then, but now we are leaning to the Conservatives to get Brexit done and because of immigration.” [inews]

Drive up the hill out of town today and you can see why the site of the old colliery is once again a source of tension.

After the pit closed in 1993, the 930-acre site was turned into a business park and half of it was given over to billionaire Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct. By 2016, figures suggest the firm’s warehouses were employing 3,500 agency workers – mainly from eastern Europe.

Anti-social elements

Hundreds of protesters marched on the site saying it was attracting “anti-social elements” from abroad. There were also claims of a clash of cultures in the town – with a local newspaper reporting that gangs of men were drinking on the streets and leaving women and pensioners feeling intimidated.

“People are annoyed because there has been an influx of people from Europe because of Sports Direct,” says Yvonne Chapman, 74, who is shopping in the market square. “We’ve seen the effects of immigration here. That’s why people want Brexit.”

“I come from a mining family,” she adds. “My dad and my granddad were miners. It goes back centuries. But I think we’re all voting Conservative now. I don’t even know the name of their candidate. I’ve never needed to know until now.”” [inews]

Back in the market square, 76-year-old Douglas Steel has just stepped out of a cafe with his wife Connie. The pair met at a fairground in this square back in 1962. He is hobbling on crutches – a reminder of the back injury that finished his mining career at Shirebrook pit in 1987.

“I was born right there above the bank in 1944,” he says. “We had no electricity and I was born by gaslight. I joined the union when I was 15.

“During the miners’ strike, I had no choice but to go back to work. I needed to for the sake of my family. It was the bully boys from Doncaster who kept us out. They came down here and smashed people’s gates to make bonfires.“It makes you cry what’s happened to this town. It used to be together. But the town is shattered now.” [inews]

https://inews.co.uk/news/general-election-2019-miners-vote-tory-bolsover-derbyshire-shirebrook-brexit-1262531?fbclid=IwAR2tzXu8qo_g787XwZKYzHAwZE7rYo6AX4V6wTtTr-HYbU3lXGvhkwDl5HI

You can see the dilemma the voters of Bolsover have: they want both nation and society. Social nationalism. Labour have ignored them, their MP is a dinosaur living in the 1970s if not 1940s, so they blindly thresh around, even thinking of going against a century of inward-looking Labourite socialism and voting “Conservative”, despite the evidence before them that globalist capitalism is no answer to their problems.

It might still come good for Labour in this election (to the extent of at least not being half wiped out) but Labour remains in deep trouble, with only 22 clear days left. When 40% and maybe even 50% of the voters of Bolsover are thinking of voting Conservative (not even LibDem, Brexit Party, UKIP or whatever), there has been a sea change.

It can be seen that the Bolsover voters are not voting for Conservative Party policies or people but against immigration and stagnation. Dennis Skinner, 87 years old Labour Party machine dinosaur who has never sent a email and who is like a living relic from some bygone era, is a symbol himself, of a Labour Party which ceased to exist at least 22 and probably 27 years ago.

Labour, as I have often said, is no longer the party of the proletariat, because the “proletariat” no longer exists (in significant numbers) even in the once-industrial North of England. Labour’s strength lies now in the blacks, browns, the public services (somewhat), the 20% dependent on State benefits. That strength is concentrated in large cities only, or at least mainly.

The UK is ripe for social nationalism. There needs to be a party. People cannot support or vote for or fight for a party that does not exist.

Good points from Peter Oborne about how Boris-idiot has been given a fair wind and an unfair advantage by the msm for the past 20 years; I have been saying that for years:

Update, 19 November 2019

https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1206099/General-election-2019-Nigel-Farage-Brexit-Party-poll-Labour-seat-Boris-Johnson-latest

Brexit Party is still about 5% in the polls. It is an irrelevance and is now becoming an embarrassment. My blogging, for several months at least, about how Nigel Farage —despite his crowdpleasing and oratorical gifts— is a poor politician and strategist, has been proven accurate. As with UKIP, Farage has not set up a decent party administration, has had no Westminster success and has failed to break the “3 main parties” System scam. He could have done it but, as with UKIP, was unwilling to put forward radical social-national policies, and so remained “national-conservative” and far too close to the Conservative Party.

Farage also did something else that he did at UKIP— betrayed his followers.

Brexit Party is a dead duck. Farage’s own actions have killed it stone dead. Idiot.

Brexit is not the only fruit

General Election 2019 in the UK, freedom of historical inquiry is not permitted, and look at who is milking it all— “them”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7699869/Tory-candidate-suspended-party-online-comments.html

Pity that the “Conservative” candidate in Aberdeen North does not have the steel to tell the Zionists to get lost…he needs more fibre in his diet, or in his character.

Labour is –possibly, maybe…I think— slowly catching up, and Boris-idiot’s lead as “best candidate to be PM” is diminishing fast:

Update, 22 November 2020

Well, as I predicted, Dennis Skinner lost his seat at Bolsover. A remarkable result all the same: Labour and Skinner ended up with just under 36% of the votes cast, the Conservative Party candidate getting well over 47%.

What made the result even more remarkable is that a Brexit Party candidate actually stood, one of the few that did in the end, and moreover got 9% of votes cast. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolsover_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s.

It is a open question as to the result had a Brexit Party candidate not stood. It may be that the Conservative Party candidate would have attained as much as 56% of the vote.

Even so, this result represented a sea-change. The Conservative was a gay, and also an employee of a private health company! The new MP for Bolsover!

Dennis Skinner’s binning at Bolsover shows that the old Labour type (even where assisted by the Corbyn/Momentum-style “counter-Reformation” “socialists”) will never be popular again. That old-style 1930s-meets-1960s “socialist” type, with its focus on “anti-fascism”, “No Pasaran!”, “the Battle of Cable Street” and “Jarrow Hunger March” banners, is dead and buried in the Britain of 2019 and 2020.

General Election 2019 Daily Updated Blog (no.3)

Once again I restart my General Election blog because the previous two are now both long and inconvenient to read. Starting in the evening of 11 November 2019.

Previous blogs:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/11/01/general-election-2019-daily-updated-blog/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/11/06/general-election-2019-daily-updated-blog-no-2/

This translates (using Electoral Calculus) to a Conservative Party majority somewhere around 14. Is this just an outlier, or the first poll showing a break in the wave of opinion poll predictions of massive Conservative majorities (some of 150 or more)? We shall see.

The latest round fired in the Brexit Party war was this, in The Independent, from Labour MP Phil Wilson:

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/brexit-party-nigel-farage-general-election-north-east-sedgefield-phil-wilson-a9198241.html

A hard-hitting polemic. Gritty Northern lad turned MP, Phil, against effete Southern carpetbagger Nigel. Except, as so often in UK politics, the details get in the way.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Wilson_(British_politician)

True, Phil Wilson was born the son of a miner in Co. Durham. He has lived in the constituency he represents for much of his life. However, “Wilson later worked as a gambling lobbyist for the Gala Coral Group in the lead up to the passing of the 2005 Gambling Act, and as a director at London based public affairs consultancy Fellows’ Associates.” [Wikipedia].

A lobbyist for a giant bookmaker? A director of a public relations firm based in London? That’s not very gritty and Northern…Almost like working for “the man, the very fat man, that waters the workers’ beer”…

Wilson is known for being one of the “Famous Five”, a group of local Labour

Party members who helped a young Tony Blair get selected as the Labour candidate for Sedgefield for the 1983 election.[3] He subsequently worked for Tony Blair in his constituency office, the Labour Party and a PR company.” [Wikipedia]

It gets worse:

In his 2017 general election voter leaflet, Wilson stated he was not a supporter of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, and suggested Labour would not win the election.[11] He had supported Owen Smith in the failed attempt to replace Jeremy Corbyn in the 2016 Labour Party (UK) leadership election

[Wikipedia]

Phil Wilson supports remaining in the EU, wants to ignore the 2016 Referendum by holding another one, and is (quelle surprise) a member of Labour Friends of Israel

I have heard nothing from Phil Wilson against either the Jewish lobby or the migration-invasion of Britain by blacks, browns and others.

Of course, he is right about Farage, but Wilson and his MP cronies (and those in his public relations/Blairite circles) should muse on why it is that people in places like Sedgefield turn to snake-oil salesmen like Farage? Might it be that they are sick of “Labour” MPs who are all tied up with Jewish and/or London public relations and gambling interests yet pretend to be hardy Northern proletarians at election time? “Labour” MPs who turned a blind eye to the invasion of the UK by racially and culturally inferior peoples? Who turned a deaf ear to the many girl victims of Pakistani Muslim “grooming” etc?

Voters in places like Sedgefield (and the rest of the country) have no social-national party to support, so some of them turn to obvious fakes like Farage and Brexit Party, because those voters are sick of fakes like Blair, his (((enablers))) and fake “Labour”.

From the Sky News politics juju man, Lewis Goodall:

A good example of reasoning which may or may not be correct, but which is not logically inevitably so. There may be other motivators. All the same, it is remarkable that Farage is willing to take the word of the biggest fraud seen in UK politics for decades, Boris-Idiot. A con-man conned?

Interesting shot across the bows by Remain partisan and ex-Con and ex-Cabinet minister, Nick Boles

and Katie Hopkins, who was at first ecstatic at the Brexit Party “pact” (unilateral surrender), now rows back a bit, while still loving it. I don’t rate her political nous very highly but she is cunning.

Other tweets:

Tactical voting, the pathetic, inadequate but only alternative for voters when the electoral system and political milieu is as broken as it is…

“Wolfie”, who used to retweet me before the Jews had me expelled from Twitter:

and it seems that Farage is operating a political Ponzi scheme:

As I blogged earlier today, when I heard about Farage’s extraordinary U-turn, this finishes Brexit Party. Right here and now. Finished. Killed stone dead.

In other news, “the times they are a’changin’…”

and continuing with the real Britain outside the Brexit bubble(s):

Will this, below, be in the Sun “newspaper”? I doubt it.

Update, 12 November 2019

For me, there are two main stories today, both of which can be seen via the latest opinion polls. The most recent (but still taken before the latest Farage/Brexit Party shambles):

  • Labour starting to catch up with the Conservative Party;
  • Brexit Party sinking

In fact, those figures would still give the “Conservatives” (they really should get a more honest label) a Commons majority of about 56, because 39% is high anyway, and because the LibDems and Brexit Party look like taking fewer Con votes. However, the direction of travel of Labour is clearly upward.

I really think that Farage’s latest slippery tactic, standing down 317 candidates to help the “Conservatives”, has mortally wounded Brexit Party. In fact, I think that it has killed it stone dead. The same may be true of the reputation of Nigel Farage.

Brexit Party was at 8% in the latest poll, taken before the latest Farage action. I doubt whether, across the board, Brexit Party will get a vote share of more than 5% on 12 December, polling day, and very much doubt that it can get even 1 MP, though Tice might have a chance as a protest candidate in Hartlepool.

I think that most Brexit Party candidates are going to lose their deposits. It now appears that all potential Brexit Party candidates, 3,000 of them, had to stump up £100 each to apply. After Farage’s unilateral surrender to the “Conservatives”, this money will not be refunded! As far as I know, the electoral deposits payable to the electoral authorities by Brexit Party candidates have not been paid yet, so Farage (who is the major shareholder in the private company that owns Brexit Party) has just decided to keep those monies, amounting to £300,000 (minus the £150,000 in deposits —£500 each— which will be paid to allow the remaining 300+ candidates to stand). Unless I have missed something, that means that Farage and Brexit Party have in effect just “stolen” £150,000 from their own most fervent supporters!

As to Labour, its policies may now be working through to public consciousness. Some are popular in principle, such as those to do with rail, water, other utilities. The “Conservatives” may say that they are “unaffordable”, but many of their own policies, such as the “welfare” “reforms” of Dunce Duncan Smith have cost unbelievable amounts of money (instead of saving money), all so that the poor can be terrorized.

Corbyn is never going to be flavour of the month with the public, but the screams of the msm (the Jewish press, really) are becoming so shrill and absurd that few take them seriously. Corbyn as Stalin (per Boris-Idiot)? No-one believes that. Corbyn as Trotsky or Lenin? Just ridiculous. I think that that card has now been played and has little more traction in it.

We may be looking at a narrowing of the gap between Conservative and Labour, with Brexit Party all but dropping out and the LibDems either losing support or concentrating it in a relatively small number of seats in the South where they have a good chance against the Conservatives.

I may be wrong, but at present feel that the “Conservatives” are about to be squeezed on two fronts. As we know, a two-front war is hard to win! Who said that?…

YouGov has now come out with a poll taken since Farage threw his party under a bus:

It rather proves my blog point of, originally, some months ago, to the effect that Farage is not a very good politician despite his gifts of oratory etc. That does not preclude the possibility that Farage is doing what I call a Mikhail Tal.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Tal#Notable_games: “Tal vs. Vasily Smyslov, Yugoslavia Candidates’ Tournament 1959, Caro–Kann Defence (B10), 1–0.[29] A daring piece sacrifice to win a brilliancy prize.”

Tal was a Soviet chess grandmaster and World Champion. One of his famous games showed him sacrifice almost all his pieces in order to place the few remaining ones in a winning position, having of course plotted it all out in advance. The question then would be: what, for Farage, *is* a winning position? Not for “Brexit Party”, which, like all pawns, “exists to be sacrificed” (in the words of Wilhelm Steinitz), but for Farage?

Those figures would give the “Conservatives” a Commons majority of perhaps 156…which would be an “elected” dictatorship. We might be in “V for Vengeance” territory. If the General Election itself mirrored that opinion poll, Labour would be left with only 155 MPs, a loss of 107.

“[Farage] told ITV’s Good Morning Britain: “I made a big, generous offer to the Conservative Party yesterday [Monday]. I gifted them a couple of dozen seats.”

Mr Farage later criticised the Tories for not reciprocating his move by standing aside in some Labour areas where the Brexit Party could challenge the incumbent.

He told the BBC: “I would have expected, having put country before party, to perhaps have got something back from the Conservatives.

“But no, nothing is good enough for them.”

He added: “It is clear to me it is not a Leave majority they want in Parliament, it is just a Tory one.”

[BBC News https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50387254]

Is Farage really that naive? Why should the Cons stand down anywhere, now that Brexit Party has unilaterally stood down 317 candidates?!

Has Boris just driven his steamroller through Farage’s croquet game?

In fact, under electoral law, Farage/Brexit Party still have about 50 hours (until 1600 hrs, 14 November 2019) in which to officially declare or withdraw candidates. Why does Farage not belay his last order and allow the 317 stood-down candidates to stand anyway, to spite Boris-Idiot? Farage now knows that Boris has no intention of playing the game. Boris is carrying a machine-gun onto the grouse moor.

Update, 13 November 2019

Perhaps not directly an election story, but not irrelevant either: Jew business leech presently polluting the air of the UK tells struggling nurse that she should get a second job or start an online business!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7678301/Apprentices-Claude-Littner-tells-nurses-need-work-struggling-make-ends-meet.html

Nurses and all NHS staff must be paid reasonably well. While we are on the subject of the NHS, we must change this absurd system that has been allowed to grow up, whereby parking has to be paid for. When you visit a hospital in most countries, you do not pay to park! Hospitals should be funded out of taxation (if public, as most are in the UK). That should be even more the case when the hospital staff park! Plan hospitals properly, with adequate and free parking!

Another opinion poll:

Out of sync with most other recent polls. An outlier, if you like. However, this is the second poll (from 2 polling companies) which goes against the orthodoxy of the past weeks (that the Conservatives are about to win hugely). On this Survation polling, the Conservative Party would actually be 1 MP short of a majority, so better off than a month or two ago, but far from trampling over all other parties.

My sense is that this General Election is not yet cut and dried.

The George Monbiot article, below, is a good example of how out of touch so many Guardian-reading chattering-class twitterati are. Everyone with any sense knows that there is a serious problem in the UK, especially in England, with both Roma-type Gypsies and the faux-Gypsies also referred to as Irish “tinkers” or, in today’s politically-correct nonsense-term, “travellers”. To ignore that fact, or, worse, to actually support these anti-social elements, plays into the hands of would-be dictators like Priti Patel.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/nov/13/priti-patel-demonisation-gypsies-prejudice-bigotry

When politicians such as Corbyn (living in Islington) “support” thieves, scavengers and despoilers of the green and pleasant land (what little is left of it), they place themselves against the British people. The British people notice, and vote accordingly.

George Monbiot himself lives rather comfortably, mostly in Oxford…

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Monbiot]

Boris-Idiot went to the flood-affected areas with a mop, in a typically ham-fisted attempt to entertain the people. Now he orders 100 soldiers to go (to be filmed for TV news). Someone who merely poses as PM.

Talking of floods, the Mayor of Venice seems to be another political idiot, saying that the bad flooding there is “obviously a result of climate change”. Poor sap obviously cannot think. The flooding is the worst for 50+ years, i.e. there was flooding as bad or worse back in 1966…In fact, St, Mark’s Basilica has been flooded, as it now is again, 6 times in 1,200 years, so there was such flooding as bad in Venice hundreds of years ago, even 1,000 years ago!

There is a danger that we as a society retreat to a “belief”-society which ignores facts, eschews logic as well as intellectual freedom, and prefers “belief”, officially-approved “belief”, officially-enforced “belief”:

“Climate change” caused by human “emissions”, “holocaust” a-history involving “gas chambers” gassing millions of Jews from 1942-1944, and so on. The Aral Sea, in a film by Al Gore, gone by reason of “global warming” (in reality, because Soviet authorities diverted its feeder streams and rivers to cotton production) etc. There are innumerable other examples. Fake history, fake news, fake science. Our times…

Farage now says that he might vote “Conservative”!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7681309/300-Brexit-Party-candidates-stand-election-vows-Nigel-Farage.html

Boris Johnson offers Farage a pact that the Cons will put up paper candidates only in 40 Labour-held seats, if Brexit Party stand down their remaining candidates (about 250). So far refused, with (as I write) only 17 hours to go before the deadline (1600 hrs, 14 November 2019).

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/11/13/tories-offer-nigel-farage-eleventh-hour-deal/

Farage has pretty much killed Brexit Party by standing down 317 candidates for no reciprocation by the Conservative Party. It’s pathetic.

Update, 14 November 2019

Farage seems (on the face of it) to have only now woken up to what I have been blogging about for months: that Boris Johnson and his cronies are not really interested in Brexit but want a Commons majority for other and very sinister ends. They weaponized Brexit in the attempt to maximize a Commons majority, but Brexit is not the end for them, merely the means to get a higher number of votes in the General Election, and so a greater number of MPs.

Nigel Farage has ruled out standing down more Brexit Party candidates as the deadline day for nominations arrives.

It comes after Mr Farage was warned that votes for his party would hand the keys of Number 10 to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, with Boris Johnson claiming that a Conservative government is the only way to “get Brexit done”.

Speaking on Radio 4’s Today Programme, the Brexit Party [leader] said: “What I’ve realised is that the Conservatives want a Conservative majority in Parliament, not a Brexit majority in Parliament.”” [Evening Standard https://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/general-election-2019-live-nigel-farage-urged-to-pull-more-brexit-party-candidates-as-deadline-day-a4286751.html]

Farage still has time, in theory, to re-stand the 317 candidates he stood down recently. As I write, there remain just under 4 hours before the deadline. However, many of his betrayed candidates now despise him and his pop-up “party” and would probably not agree anyway.

It may be that Brexit Party standing in Labour-held seats will now redound to Labour’s benefit, in that even if Brexit Party only gets a few percent, the votes will be from voters who would otherwise vote Conservative. It might save Labour’s bacon in many Northern seats.

Labour’s election messages so far are mixed, ineffective and not grabbing the voters (is my sense, anyway), and the wall-to-wall anti-Corbyn bias of the Jewish-influenced UK msm just intensifies that.

Labour’s immigration policy is turning voters off, but it may be that most people already were turned off by it, and so cannot be turned off “double”, so to speak. In any case, people know that the Conservatives themselves have been pathetic on the migration-invasion question.

Having said the above, I sense that Brexit is perhaps just beginning to take a back seat as domestic policy issues come to the fore: the floods in Northern England, the emergency services, the NHS etc. Labour’s strong suits.

Meanwhile, Jo Swinson, doormatting (as usual) for the Jewish-Zionist lobby:

Jo Swinson is pathetic:

  • The “IHRA” is basically a Jewish-Zionist front; Blair was one of its early supporters;
  • The “International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance” only has 31 states (out of about 200) as members;
  • only 6 out of those 31 states have formally endorsed or adopted the “definition” referred to by Jo Swinson;
  • On 1 January 2015, Professor David Feldman stated in a Sub-Report for the Parliamentary Committee Against Antisemitism that the definition had “largely has fallen out of favour” due to criticisms received.[45][46]” [Wikipedia]
  • In the UK, only extremist Zionist organizations, and doormats such as Jo Swinson, Eric Pickles and that little pissant Robert Jenrick, have promoted the so-called “definition”;
  • In October 2019, University College London required speakers at a book launch to agree to additional guidelines relating to discussing antisemitism, even though that was not the subject of the book“…in other words, the “definition” is merely a tool via which Jewish-Zionist extremists attempt to close down the freedom of expression of host peoples.
  • Jo Swinson is no more than semi-literate. A “definition” is “of” something, not “on” something; and “which all candidates are being asked to sign this Election“? Ha ha!

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Working_Definition_of_Antisemitism

Another reason never to vote LibDem!

Here’s another: Jo Swinson is longing to get into another Con-LibDem coalition. She loved the 2010-2015 Con Coalition, in which she was a PUS (junior Government appointee) and voted for all of the terrible measures against the poorer people of the UK.

Jo Swinson, the Liberal Democrat leader, has said she would sooner push the UK into another general election than put Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into Downing Street in the event of a hung parliament. Ms Swinson, who could hold the balance of power if no party wins a House of Commons majority in the December 12 election, rejected the possibility of the anti-Brexit Lib Dems entering a parliamentary pact with Mr Corbyn.” [Financial Times]

https://www.ft.com/content/454c1ed0-060b-11ea-9afa-d9e2401fa7ca

There it is: vote LibDem, get Con

And, quelle surprise…Robert Largan, the “Conservative” candidate at High Peak, Derbyshire (who lives, it seems, in Fulham, London, and works as an accountant for Marks & Spencer), has signed that same fake “definition”! Wouldn’t you know it?!

Largan seems to specialize in negative attacks on the present Labour MP for High Peak, Ruth George, as well as on anyone who tweets support for her. See below.

—and notice Largan’s supporter there, “Happy”/”@lcfcsingh”, presumably an Indian and Conservative Party member, from Leicester (Largan seems to have to bus-in supporters, he seems to have very few locally), who plays the (more usually) Jew-Zionist card, trying to intimidate the anti-Conservative tweeter, “David”, by threatening him with the UK police acting as a Poundland KGB : “just reported your tweet. Expect a knock at the door.” Ha ha! Yeah, right…A sign of the times, though.

(though “David” is misinformed if he imagines that “denying” a so-called “holocaust” “is a crime”. It is not, not in the UK).

Some locals appear to despise Largan, who would no doubt be more at home in some chi-chi Fulham (or Soho?…) bar.

Back to the General Election mainstream

Taking a step back, and looking at the big picture, where is Labour, meaning in general, beyond this General Election? Where is the Conservative Party? Where are the LibDems? I leave out “Brexit Party”, which has just been sacrificed by its progenitor.

I have often blogged about how Labour is now the party, almost exclusively, of the ethnic minorities (except Jews and now perhaps the wealthier Indians) and/or those who directly benefit from public funds (public service workers, NHS employees, State benefit recipients). There are of course other groups and individuals, but those are the core voters, added to which may be the minority of younger voters (under 35s) who actually bother to vote.

The Labour core vote is no more than 30% of the whole, nationally. That, with Labour’s connected propensity to stack up votes in a relatively small number of safe seats, makes it hard for Labour to get a Commons majority. Ever.

The “Centrists” (non-socialist, pro-Israel) in Labour look back wistfully at the 1997-2010 Blair “appeal to all demographics” years of huge Labour majorities in the Commons (crazed Gordon Brown being a tacked-on afterthought). That was then. Times have changed. The Labour Party’s deliberate encouragement of mass immigration (migration-invasion), blind eye turned to the mass rape of young English, Welsh and Scottish girls by (mainly) Pakistani Muslims, not to mention Labour’s sycophancy towards the ultra-wealthy and its toleration of zero-hours contracts, PFI scams etc, have over years alienated the voters.

It is worth remembering that the voters rejected “Centrist” Brown and then Ed Miliband, after which the (Jewish-controlled/influenced) newspapers and TV kept saying, in effect “Labour elected the wrong Jew brother” (i.e. not David Miliband). The UK msm is pathetic.

I just noticed that there have been a few hits today on this, that I wrote about 2.5 years ago: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/06/08/general-election-day-2017/

Corbyn is not Labour’s only problem, though his image is one problem. Labour’s main problem (with apologies to those who have read my words time and again) is one of identity. The industrial proletariat no longer exists, replaced (alongside much of the “middle class”) by the “precariat“, volatile and angry but also disorganized and unfocussed.

Those scribblers like Owen Jones who try to label that “precariat” as “working class” are just wilfully missing the point. The “working class” of Owen Jones is a conflation of (a relatively small) “new proletariat”, a “lumpenproletariat wearing sports gear” and the “precariat”. That is why most people just laugh when post-Marxists like Jones try to call these surging, uncontrolled, msm-brainwashed masses, with their adulation of 15-minutes-of-fame “celebrity” (and that covers the waterfront from The Only Way Is Essex, Premier League footballers, pop music, even Harry and the Royal Mulatta) , “working class”.

…and Labour (whose MPs are very different from their voters) not only has little to say to those masses but in many instances has proven to have been their enemy, certainly since 1997, arguably since the 1980s and the days of that old humbug Michael Foot.

Below: I thought that Labour activists were all young now? Not in Edinburgh, it seems. It looks like a convention for Age UK!

One has to ask where Labour support is going to come from. The “blacks and browns”?Labour is not “national”(ist), and until Corbyn took over had also thrown away its “socialist” credentials. Its time may be running out. Which brings us to the Conservative Party.

The problem that the now-misnamed Conservative Party has is one of demographics. The average Conservative Party voter is a person of about 60-80 years of age, with many well beyond that. There are few young or even 35/50 y-o voters. The core Conservative vote consists of fairly affluent or wealthy persons of middle age or old age. Racial questions are not key, though most Conservative voters are white. The wealthy of non-white populations are believed to favour the Conservative Party, and 90%+ of Jews vote Conservative now, but the numbers are small in absolute terms.

The core Conservative vote is no more, as with Labour, than 25%-30% nationally. The battleground is for the remaining voters and particularly the extra 10%-15% and in swing or marginal seats, which are the only ones that usually matter.

The best argument that the Conservative Party now has is the exact reverse of Labour’s best argument: Con is not Lab; Lab is not Con. We are talking negatives. Voters are really voting negatively, against the party they hate the most.

Other Conservative Party policies are not likely to inspire: the Cons have been in charge for nearly 10 years, have talked a semi-good game on immigration but have failed miserably. As for Brexit, the pathetic lack of real progress has not changed. We are still in the throes of trying to leave (but not really leave).

When it comes to the economy, too, while the Cons sold their pathetic “austerity” nonsense to the masses via the msm from 2010, somehow persuading them that the unemployed, disabled and others on State benefits were responsible for the UK’s poor performance, the reality is —slowly— dawning: “austerity” (suffered only by the poor and fairly poor) actually held back the UK economy. Other countries (except semi-banana states like Greece) have done better by boosting their economies, not paring back everywhere. Well, if you will trust a stupid part-Jew trustafarian cokehead like George Osborne with the economy, what do you expect?

b-cisxdiqaa7qj_-jpg-large

The Conservatives are doomed, but not quite yet. It is hard to see them forming the government in, say, 2025 or 2030. As far as this general election is concerned, though, they are riding high because of the near-collapse of Labour. All the same, as we enter the last 4 weeks of this short election campaign, there is still all to play for. I do not yet regard the predicted massive Conservative victory (predicted by most, still) as inevitable, though it is clear that Labour is in serious trouble.

The LibDems have what the marketers call a “unique selling point” in that they are the sole hard-Remain party. Will that be enough? The withdrawal of Brexit Party from contesting Con-held seats will deprive the LibDems of a number of potential wins. The LibDems are languishing on around 15% nationally.

I begin to wonder whether the LibDems are going to slump. They may take a certain number, a small number, of seats, but I see no large breakthrough. At present, thanks to defections, they have (or had until the campaign started) 21 MPs; 12 from 2017, 9 defectors. I cannot see them having more than 20 after 12 December. They may even drop back to below a dozen. I may be wrong, but that is my feeling.

So with Con, Lab and LibDem all losing traction, what next? No country can be without a future, unless it is destroyed totally. It may have an unpleasant future, though, if the right choices are not made. Importation of inferior peoples— wrong choice. Maladministration to save money or kow-tow to special interest groups— wrong choice. Prioritization of quantity over quality in education— wrong choice. And so on.

Britain needs a social-national party and movement.

Update, 15 November 2019

The System parties now vie with each other in offering the voters “goodies”. For my money, the eyecatching offer today was that from Labour: free broadband for everyone. The other parties may say that it is “unaffordable” but that is just negative white noise. This is a potential gamechanger. In fact, I myself suggested this years ago. My idea was Basic Income, free local transport, free internet and utilities (all to a predetermined set maximum amount). Labour is catching up with me now; 5-10 years late, but better late than never.

The Conservatives are offering to reinstitute a few of the rail lines closed in the 1960s. Not a bad idea, but some mentioned (eg the Varsity Line

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varsity_Line) are already in train (so to speak).

[Flanders and Swann, The Slow Train]

Brexit Party: well and truly washed-up. You heard it here first. The Guardian (like Labour) has taken its time in catching up with me, but here it is:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/14/campaign-genius-nigel-farage-has-totally-self-partnered-himself

Brutal.

Returning to the parties that are really playing in this election, my sense, this cold morning, is that a new phase of the election campaign has started, a new front has opened up. Perhaps several new fronts.

The election campaign has so far been almost entirely about Brexit. I speculated, weeks ago, that there were other issues important to people. Now the narrative has (again) caught up with me. Whether it was the flooding in the North, the news about stresses on the NHS, or just that all three System parties are now talking about those other issues in society, there is a palpable change of atmosphere. Brexit is taking a back seat. That has to play more to Labour’s advantage.

The Conservatives and the Jewish-influenced msm are talking much about Labour’s supposed “anti-Semitism”, but I feel that that is “caviar to the general” and will not resonate much with most voters.

I shall be interested to see whether Labour makes up any ground in the next few opinion polls. My guess is that it will. If it does not, Labour really is facing a crisis bigger than any in recent history.

LibDems. Brexit.

The assumption has been made by many msm commentators and also by me to some extent, that the LibDems will get a boost by being the only unalloyed Remain party of any significance in this election. I still think that that is so, but the effect may well be limited.

As we know, less than 50% of UK voters voted Remain in 2016. If you leave out Northern Ireland and Scotland, the proportion was smaller in England and Wales. The figure now seems not much changed. Recent polls said that about 40% of the voters say that Brexit is the most important issue in this election. So, it is arguable that those

  • favouring Remain,
  • who also think that Brexit is the most important issue

might add up to around a fifth to a quarter of the electorate. Probably no more than a fifth. That might give the LibDems 20% of votes, as a maximum. Not enough for a breakthrough, but respectable, especially looking at the 4.9% the LibDems scored in 2015 and the 3.9% they received in 2017.

However, that 40%, the”most important issue” figure, comes from a poll taken some weeks ago. If that is now 30%, the LibDems may have a ceiling of 15%. For the LibDems everything now depends on getting in a large hard-core Remain vote. Failing that, the LibDems will slip below 10%, possibly below 5%, and the 2015-2017 decline will continue to LibDem oblivion.

Blind spot?

System scribbler Dan Hodges waxes indignant about supposed Russian interference in UK elections. Should he not cast his eyes toward the proven interference in UK elections and politics by Israel and its agents?

General Election 2019 Daily Updated Blog

I have already given a preliminary opinion piece about the upcoming general election:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/30/a-preliminary-look-at-the-2019-general-election/

and in other blog posts have examined Boris Johnson and his Cabinet, Corbyn, the various political parties contending, and some of the main issues in considerable detail.

I am now inclined to blog daily with any significant news. I start with the Daily Mail report below.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7638411/Nigel-Farage-prepares-unveil-Brexit-Party-election-hit-list-HUNDREDS-seats.html

The essence of the report is that Nigel Farage tried to form an electoral pact with the Conservatives, which has now been rejected by “leading Conservatives”. Farage has left the offer open until 14 November, like the businessman he is. The reason for the rejection seems to be that the Conservatives are unwilling to accede to Farage’s demands. Another connected reason would be that the Cons would have to give the Brexit Party a free run in at least some seats.

Since the 19th Century, the Conservative (and Unionist) Party has made it a point of honour to stand a candidate in every Westminster constituency. Another point is that, if Brexit Party were to end up with even a small bloc of seats, BP might later strike out from that citadel and be a far greater danger to the Conservatives. Once a party has more than a tiny number of Westminster seats, it’s launched, it’s a player.

Most Brexit Party members and candidates are far closer to Conservative Party ideology than that of the Labour Party. To some extent, that is true of BP voters too, at least in the South of England.

The Brexit Party has lost its mojo recently. By-election misses, poll doldrums (as Boris-Idiot tried to capture the Leave/Brexit vote). Brexit Party a few days ago was at its lowest in the polls since the Spring: only 7%.

However, one can never quite write off egregious Farage. His bold gambit in demanding that the Cons comply with conditions such as effectively gifting him a bloc of seats may energize Brexit Party now that the Conservatives have so contemptuously refused the proposal.

Boris Johnson is no “One Nation” Prime Minister. He was jeered and booed when leaving Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, yesterday. The Conservatives may have been at 42% in the polls a few days ago (published yesterday but work done a week ago) but I doubt that that can be maintained.

Brexit Party has the power to hit Labour, but it has the ability to hit the Conservatives worse. There are large numbers of seats where a Brexit Party candidate can mean a Conservative candidate losing to a LibDem, or to Labour, or even, who knows, even to…a Brexit Party candidate.

If (at present, a big if) Farage and Brexit Party can pick up speed, increasing support from the recent 7% to 15% or more, Boris-Idiot is toast, along with the Conservative Party. The Conservatives may then find themselves, not with the solid majority they want but worse off than they are now.

Update, 2 November 2019

(Mike Ashley is a barrow-boy “entrepreneur” who makes Alan Sugar look like Andrew Carnegie).

(might mean a Con majority of 90+, if accurate…)

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/nov/02/boris-johnson-brexit-populism-tories-lifeline

The polling website Britain Elects has interpreted these as showing a current Tory vote share of about 35%, roughly 10 points ahead of Labour; and the analytical website Electoral Calculus has extrapolated a Tory majority on 12 December of about 70. That would be by far the party’s largest since Margaret Thatcher’s third election victory in 1987. There are obvious flaws to this suggestion that Johnson will win decisively. In 2017, May had an even bigger initial poll lead, but it shrank to almost nothing by election day. And this year’s contest is potentially more volatile still.” [The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/oct/30/the-guardian-view-on-a-volatile-electorate-disunited-and-unpredictable

“The fanfare at the launch of a general election tends to obscure the reality that Britain’s voting system involves hundreds of very particular local elections. That constituency variation, combined with unusual volatility in party identification, makes the poll due on 12 December highly unpredictable. Brexit has shuffled conventional loyalties, forcing the Conservatives in particular to seek support on unfamiliar terms.” [The Guardian]

Update, 3 November 2019

In a sign of the increasing volatility and unpredictability of the UK electorate, the latest opinion poll now places Conservative Party on 36%, Labour Party 28%, LibDems 14%, Brexit Party 12%.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/11/02/tory-majority-doubt-telegraph-poll-shows-lead-just-eight-points/

By Electoral Calculus calculation, that could still give the Conservatives a Commons majority of 40+, but is a long way below other recent estimates. In 2017, the Conservatives started the General Election campaign very far ahead of Labour, but the advantage had almost disappeared by polling day. Another few days and Labour would have overtaken.

Update, 3 November 2019

These connected tweets made me laugh. Ghastly old Jewish “ho” Edwina Currie got a shock while canvassing for the “Conservative” candidate in the High Peak constituency of Derbyshire:

Surprisingly (perhaps not very), she ignores the occupier’s plea that he is very busy and engaged on a conference call; she just ploughs on regardless.

Jesus! If that ghastly apparition appeared outside my home on Halloween, after dark, I would arm myself with a mallet and a wooden stake!

Meanwhile, on the national stage, Nigel Farage has announced that he himself will not be contesting any seat, but that Brexit Party will now be contesting at least 600 seats.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7644269/Nigel-Farage-says-WONT-stand-MP-snap-election.html

This will obviously have an effect on Conservative vote-shares in those constituencies and on the number of Conservative MPs returned. To what extent that is so depends on how high the support for Brexit Party goes. If only 5%-10%, maybe not so serious. If 10%-15%, possibly enough to prevent a Conservative majority in the Commons. If anything like 20%+, it is Goodnight Vienna for the Conservatives, especially if Labour and the LibDems also increase their shares.

The Conservatives are taking the Brexit Party effect seriously, which is why they just offered the Brexit Party chairman, Richard Tice MEP, a safe rural Conservative seat if he would defect (he has, it seems, refused).

Update, 4 November 2019

Conservative Party candidate for Gower, one Francesca O’Brien, wrote that those living on State benefits should be “put down”:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-politics-50283520

and now it seems that Ross Thomson [Con, Aberdeen South] will not be standing for re-election after having been caught engaging in gay sex assaults.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7644987/Tory-MP-wont-fight-General-Election-Labour-MP-claims-tried-stick-hand-trousers.html

I have only one regret about this nasty little shit leaving the Commons: I was going to include him in my “Deadhead MPs— An Occasional Series”. Plenty of fish, though.

In a way, the Ross Thomson story is the tale of how the Conservative Party has become something totally alien. A few extracts from his Wikipedia entry:

Prior to entering politics, Thomson worked as a store trainer for department store Debenhams“;

On 5 October 2016, Thomson repaid expenses relating to a night’s stay in an Edinburgh hotel with a male friend whom he subsequently hired.[16]“;

[“hired” the “male friend” on his MP’s expenses, of course…was he giving the “male friend” a test drive?]

On 3 November 2019 MP Paul Sweeney accused Thomson of sexual assault in the Strangers’ Bar in October 2018.[22] Denying wrongdoing, later the same day Thomson announced that he would not stand for re-election as the Member of Parliament for Aberdeen South, saying that allegations of groping had made his life ‘a living hell’. [23] However, this was later contradicted when it emerged that he only stood down when the chairman of his local Conservative Association refused to sign his nomination papers to allow him to stand as a Conservative candidate.“;

On 6 February 2019, various newspapers reported unsubstantiated claims that Thomson had been escorted by police from the Strangers’ Bar of the House of Commons the previous evening. Initial reports indicated that police had attended following reports of “sexual touching” of patrons by the MP. Eyewitnesses claimed that Thomson had repeatedly groped several young men also present in the bar, grabbing their bottoms and genitals. No prosecutions followed and a Conservative Party investigation is yet to conclude, but the Parliamentary Commissioner on Standards dismissed the complaint.[28][29][30][31] Thomson has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, citing the allegations as politically motivated.[32]

The damn cheek of the bastard! He has the gall (re. the above) to say that he is a victim! (because he has been “trolled” online about his degenerate behaviour).

Here he is, a couple of years ago, weaselling about the Bedroom Tax:

All that, and now I read that the bastard is in favour of mass immigration and wanted to make the UK a friendlier place for “refugees” and other migrant-invaders! This creature was (is still, for the next few days) a Conservative Party MP!

Breathing cleaner air, the latest news about Brexit Party seems to be that BP is going to put up 600+ candidates unless Boris-Idiot complies with several demands. Looks as though Brexit Party is going to rain on the “Conservative” parade (if Brexit Party can climb higher in the polls, at least)…

Back in the (((swamp))), I see that “they” have arranged a suitably well-paid safety net for sex-pest depressive and Israel mouthpiece, John Woodcock, who had to resign the Labour whip when he was exposed, so ending his political career(ism). He is going to be engaged in spying on social nationalists and trying to close down free speech. I blogged about this unpleasant individual a couple of years ago:

Update, 5 November 2019

I just noticed the date. How will history remember these years of our lives in England’s long history?

Remember remember

The 5th of November

Gunpowder, treason and plot,

Life is short and memory long

And traitors deserve to be shot

[I suppose that, in these febrile and unfree times, I should add that the poetic whimsy above does not constitute any injunction or incitement to anyone to be beastly to MPs, or indeed to anyone, whether mentioned in this blog post or not…]

Back to boring old General Election news, and it seems to me that today marks the start of the real campaign. Corbyn is at least vocalizing the reality, that the Boris-Idiot Cabinet of Israeli agents and doormats for the Jewish lobby plans to impose a “free market” dystopia on the British people. When/if enough people realize that, the Conservative Party lead will evaporate.

The government of David Cameron-Levita promised to build 200,000 new affordable houses. Not one was built. If the UK stopped importing unwanted blacks, browns etc, new houses would be unnecessary anyway, but that is another issue. The point is that promises are cheap and, in the mouth of Boris-Idiot, easily made.

I saw cocaine-abusing Israel doormat Michael Gove today on Sky News. One of the (in the end) five tweets by reason of which I was wrongfully disbarred in 2016 was that describing Michael Gove, entirely accurately, as a “pro-Israel, pro-Jew expenses cheat”. At that time, the public was unaware that Gove was also a cocaine-snorter. He looked drugged or drunk in the Chamber of the House of Commons recently. When will the British people wake up to the corrupt political/msm milieux, aka “the (((swamp)))”?

Seems that Robert Largan, “Conservative” candidate for High Peak (Derbyshire) is tweeting mostly about Alison Chabloz, with the odd negative attack on the Labour candidate and present MP, Ruth George. Largan seems obsessed with “anti-Semitism”, but then he is an accountant working for Marks & Spencer in London.

All Mr. Largan has to do now is learn to regularly shove cocaine up his nose (I shall be polite and assume that he does not already do so…) and he will be welcome at Gove’s degenerate parties…

Largan has tweeted or retweeted nine or ten times about Alison Chabloz in the past few days. His other tweets mostly try to attack the Labour candidate, Ruth George, using “guilt-by-association”. It is clear that Largan has nothing much useful to say to the voters of High Peak. He seems mostly interested in keeping in with a certain (((lobby))).

Here is what Largan and all “Conservative” MPs and candidates now support (click to listen):

High Peak’s “Conservative” candidate (who lives in a chi-chi part of London) is in fact a member of Conservative Friends of Israel. Quelle surprise…In fact, he went on a (subsidized?) trip to Israel only a few months ago. The cheek of the bastard! Surely he could wait until becoming an MP before freeloading?! I wonder whether he will be elected. I hope not. There are enough Israel-doormats in the Commons already.

https://cfoi.co.uk/cfi-coordinates-delegation-to-israel-with-conservative-parliamentary-candidates/

Some people are taking things into their own hands:

Meanwhile, there is movement in the opinion polls. While all polling shows that the Conservative Party is well ahead, a minority of polls are now showing a diminution in that lead.

That polling would result in a Conservative Party majority of about 16 seats, according to Electoral Calculus. Boris-Idiot would welcome that, though it is far from the recent predictions of 100-seat majorities. I sense a slight change in the air. Corbyn and Labour are never going to be flavour of the month with most voters, but I sense a new determination on the part of many to try to stop Boris-Idiot and his satraps from becoming an elected ZOG/NWO tyranny, as they assuredly would be, had they a majority in the Commons.

Another poll:

Brexit Party will have to get a long way up from 11% to make a really big impact. That YouGov poll would still give Boris-Idiot a Commons majority of as much as 126 seats; but things are now starting to move. The ice is beginning to melt.

Below: desperate…

Update, 6 November 2019

Yet another Conservative Party MP has decided to give up politics. Lazy half-Jew chancer and general waste of space Ed Vaizey will not be again contesting Wantage, a safe Conservative seat. He would undoubtedly have been re-elected, but his chance of further ministerial preferment (he was Secretary of State for Culture for several years, absurdly) would have been minimal, at least in the short term. He was obviously unwilling to stay on as a backbench MP for years, or indefinitely, and unlike many MPs, does not need the money.

Alison Chabloz has commented on the attack both on her and on Labour candidate Ruth George by prp-Israel Marks & Spencer accountant and “Conservative” candidate for High Peak, Robert Largan:
