I did not see the report. In the past I have seen several such “exposures” of the social-national side of British politics, both on TV and in the Press (“Lugenpresse”/”Judenpresse”), starting in the 1970s. Such reports have been on various groups or individuals: National Front, League of St. George, British Movement, British National Party, the London Forum etc. Such reports tend to be much of a muchness.
A few years ago, I think in 2017 or 2018, the Jewish “antifascist” “Hope not Hate” crowd cobbled together a similar film about the London Forum. I said at the time that it would sink without trace. It did. I believe that it was shown on late-night TV (again on Channel 4, and with an audience of two men and a dog) late at night, and later also broadcast in Belgium or the Netherlands and (I think) Sweden.
The Jew-Zionist-controlled “antifascist” cabals make a shrill noise about such “exposes” every time, briefly, before the films disappear down a black hole.
How big is the Channel 4 Dispatches audience? I cannot say, exactly. Not large, anyway.
The only Dispatches report I myself remember seeing was this one:
I have heard nothing about whether the imprisoned satirist and singer-songwriter has been released on bail pending appeal; I think she has not. In the meantime, she is now on the 28th day of 77 days of incarceration. In other words, she is now well over the one-third mark of her sentence.
Naturally, those who bought in to the facemask nonsense will feel aggrieved or betrayed, the stupid saps. I saw an old-ish woman in Waitrose only yesterday, still wearing her muzzle.
“Embarrassed” seems a mild term…
Just another virtue-signalling hypocrite who should be punished.
The presenter should have opposed “Femi” because he is anti-white-European, not because he is “racist” (whether he is or not).
The sickness in our society comes out, inter alia, in the constant pushing onto TV and radio of this useless “Femi” person. He is as thick as two short planks, for a start, and is only on the msm because the System is desperate to find blacks who can string more than a few words together. An eternal student type, who fronted a failed, EU-funded, anti-Brexit campaign for a year, several years ago now (around 2015), and now resides in the attic of his affluent Nigerian parents’ house (they being NHS doctors). At the age of 32-33, that is his entire CV, or 99% of it.
Why are there no British groups or organizations doing that or something like that, for struggling British families? Or are there, but not publicized?
Add “Femi” to the list (in an ideal world…).
Channel 4 “wokester”, undercover, in other words a spy, gets taught a lesson when “antifa” thugs ambush him and a couple of British nationalists (on whom he is spying). In the USA, the “antifa” swine would just be shot down, of course…
It occurs to me that if (as I am told) one of the Channel 4 (or other) producers tipped off the “antifa” idiots, and so (by that deliberate and/or negligent act) caused the undercover reporter/spy to be injured, then said spy might have a case in negligence against the said producer and/or his/her employer… What fun.

…and, “co-incidentally”, the people driving (or, eventually, being driven in automatic vehicles) will be able to be tracked in real time, almost everywhere, certainly on motorways and other main routes.
Overall impression? What an incredible “cuck”, in the American vernacular, that man is! Actually, his manner reminds me of another weasel, now deceased: Cecil Parkinson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Parkinson]. There is even a passing physical resemblance:
The above picture shows Parkinson when aged 75. When younger, he looked a good deal more like Starmer, in my opinion.
I doubt, however, that Starmer is a shit, in the personal realm, on anything like (if at all) the level that Parkinson was:
“Parkinson died from colorectal cancer at The London Clinic in Marylebone, London, on 22 January 2016. He left nothing in his will for his daughter Flora: in April 2017, it was reported that Sara Keays was preparing to sue Parkinson’s estate to continue to gain support for her daughter’s 24-hour care, for regular payments had ceased a few months after Parkinson died.
Parkinson’s daughter, Mary, was found dead at her home in Wandsworth on 10 December 2017, aged 57. Police did not treat the death as suspicious, and it was later reported that she had committed suicide.” [Wikipedia].
Apart from the (to my mind) physical similarity, Parkinson had something else in common with Starmer, who is (at an educated guess) a freemason. Parkinson was apparently an “active freemason” [Wikipedia]. It would be surprising if Starmer, a former Director of Public Prosecutions, were not a freemason, though I concede that I have no direct evidence that he is.
I ought to add that I once knew a woman who was seated alongside Parkinson at a State banquet, some time not long after the scandal with Sara Keays. That woman said that Parkinson was quite sympathetic in his manner. Maybe he went down better with women; I always thought that he deserved a good kick.
Reverting to that Nick Robinson interview, obviously Starmer is not a clown and pathetic waste of space in the “Boris” Johnson mode, but actually I can see why he has not really cut through to the public, despite Johnson’s incredible lack of ability and competence.
Starmer, like a good mid-range lawyer, makes the right noises: Channel migration invasion must be dealt with by “cross-border co-operation“, and the “upstream causes” dealt with, said he.
What does that mean? “Upstream causes“? So…wars and socio-economic problems in places such as Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria, Afghanistan, black Africa etc? How will Starmer “deal with”, or cure, those? Answer came there none, methinks.
The only thing that Starmer looked at all passionate about, or even interested in, was so-called “anti-Semitism”, with the focus on his Jewish wife and half-Jewish children. I saw no real interest in (or policy concerning) the huge poverty that does exist in the UK in places, made worse by continuing mass immigration. Housing problems, the same.
It may be that Starmer does take an interest in those social, and so political, problems, but if so he failed to actually convey any great interest. That is of importance in a supposedly “democratic” political leader.
Hitler talked about “dirty democratic politicians“. We are now in a contest between the sheer incompetence and corruption of the “Boris” regime, and the —if you like— “managerial semi-socialism” of a Keir Starmer Labour offering. No wonder the opinion polls show a stalemate at present.
Looking again at Parkinson’s Wikipedia entry, interesting to note that he achieved high office despite having come from unmoneyed, modest, and indeed humble, origins. Something increasingly rare in our own day.
Quite. The facemask and “vaccine” zealots display a pathology that is quite incredible at times, and which will of course be given full rein yet again, now that the Cabinet of clowns has ordered mask-wearing in shops, on trains etc from Tuesday.
As many have pointed out, masks in supermarkets but not in crowded pubs…The whole thing is just mad. All because (we are told) a “new variant” has appeared which may (or may not) be “as dangerous” as previous “variants”. Meaning those variants that killed 1 in 1,000 (if that) of the UK population. Madness but, on some level, planned madness.
I cannot believe that Farage retains even the slightest degree of credibility with anyone but, sadly, there probably are maybe rather dim Daily Mail readers, or Daily Express readers (if any still exist), who would still follow him.
I have only known personally two people who have knowingly contracted “the virus”. Two people! In nearly 2 years! Both in 2020. One was my late —nothing to do with “Covid”, incidentally— and then 98 y o mother-in law, who only knew she had “the virus” because she was routinely tested while in hospital for another, and completely different, problem. She had no symptoms, despite her age, infirmity, and existing medical conditions, and was discharged a few weeks later. Like so many others , she only contracted “Covid” because she was staying in one of the NHS’s shambolic hospitals.
The other person I know who has had “Covid-19” is my 20-something Australian niece, living in London, who was advised to take paracetamol, drink water, and rest! So much for the (unused) emergency “Nightingale” hospitals etc! She lost taste and smell for a week or so, had a few other symptoms, but soon made a full recovery without the need for any NHS medical assistance at all, unless you count the “take paracetamol and drink water” “advice” (given over the telephone).
All to do, really, with scaring the people to accept a biosecurity police state, so that “the Great Reset” can proceed from 2022-2055.
That ridiculous “Femi” creature was hoping to become a Labour MP, I think, and thousands of white, and even educated, Twitter twits seemed to give him credibility, about 2-4 years ago, but most people soon saw through his complete nonsense, so he remains living with his affluent parents, and pretends to be some kind of socio-political “influencer” on Twitter. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole. Note that Wikipedia calls him “British”…(apparently he was born in the UK).
Forget whatever that evil woman, Priyamvada Gopal, may have said about Israeli puppet Priti Patel; more to the point, the Gopal woman is an enemy of the British people, their history, race and culture. There are, in the real (not the strictly legal) sense, traitors riddling Whitehall.
Just heard 25 mins of his history podcast. What a total “cuck” for the Zionist lobby… a silver-spoon “favoured nephew”…
I shall not bother with his stuff again.
Apropos of that, the woman interviewed was terribly excited about a British Intelligence bod of (mainly) the 1920s and 1930s. These people never see the wood for the trees. Yes, such spy bods were and are very active, but the big picture is that Britain could have joined with the German Reich to rule much of the world, but instead of that decided to declare war against the Reich. As a result, Britain (with its big friends USA/USSR) beat Germany into the ground, but also lost both its Empire and its world role, and set itself back economically for decades.
As for the rest of the world, the Second World War was disastrous. Famine, population upheavals, civil wars, premature decolonization, environmental degradation. The effects are still rippling out.
Now? Well, we hear much about the supposed “threat” from Russia —non-existent were it not for Russia being prodded constantly by NATO (NWO)—, and of course “terrorism” (including the actually or effectively non-existent “far right” sort) while the UK is actually being destroyed from within, daily, eaten away by treacherous termites, not to mention the connected migration-invasion, and births to non-whites.
The Augean Stables need to be cleansed: msm outlets, Parliament, academia, other areas too.
The big picture is what matters, not spy games by minor-public-school careerists.
In these times of increasing State and Zionist-lobby repression, we in England must remember that, though people may be repressed, the idea of a better future cannot, ultimately, be repressed.
A reader of this blog sent, via the Comments section, a link to, inter alia, a haiku [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku] he had written. I was thus “inspired” to write one for the first time in years. It is in the English haiku tradition, 17 syllables over 3 lines:
The empty words From the mouth of “Boris” Seem even emptier now
On this day, a year ago
As my blog’s regular readers will know, I usually steer clear of Scottish internal politics. I do not purport to know a great deal about Scottish politics, and have never even been there. Having said that, the SNP and its peculiar cranky little leader, Nicola Sturgeon, cannot be entirely ignored.
The SNP, which had almost no MPs until six years ago (it took about 40 years just to get one), took off in 2015, and is still in precarious power north of the border.
The SNP benefits from not being Conservative, Labour, or LibDem. Simply that. Scotland was once rock-solid Labour, but a few years of Blair’s pathetic, smug, and dishonest henchman, Jim Murphy (and general trends), put paid to that. Labour now has only one Westminster MP from Scotland.
As the Spectator article notes, only half of the Scottish electorate (in fact, at present, less than half— 47%) favour Independence, the number one policy of the SNP.
Surely Scotland could not and would not break away from the UK if only a tiny majority voted to leave the Union?
In reality, what if even , say, 57% favoured Independence? Would that really be enough to tear Scotland from England? It might be far more divisive in Scotland than the Leave result was in the UK overall in 2016.
The SNP has not done so well in its other areas of responsibility, a fact that might explain why it has only 64 seats out of 129 in the Scottish Parliament, a plurality but not a majority (the SNP governs with the 7 votes of the Green Party): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Parliament.
No radical conclusion from me. I do not see the present Con, Lab, or LibDem parties enthusing Scotland much in terms of Westminster elections, so it seems that the SNP will remain the only game in town, north of the notional, if not “national”, border.
“The Great Reset” starts in only 5 weeks…33-year cycle. 1923. 1956. 1989. 2022. 2055…
The day starts with the BBC Radio 4 news report, which says that the billionaire Jew merchant, Philip Green, “has been urged to use his family money to help the employees” of the Arcadia Group which Green and his family looted in recent years! It’s too late or too early for April Fool jokes.
The sclerosis of UK politics
It is surely clear that the poliical system in the UK is sclerotic. The needs of the people are not addressed by it; neither are the wishes of the voters, who have a pathetic non-choice. More below.
Labour, coalition ideas, Clive Lewis (and “Femi Sorry”)
Family income presumably in the hundreds of thousands. Educated at a fee-paying school. Supposedly worked at several (unnamed) NGOs for about 3 years in toto (mostly, if not entirely, paid or unpaid internships, the latter something only the offspring of the affluent can do).
So did “Our Future Our Choice”, this little campaign group run by a few young people, operate out of that Solihull attic, or from a tiny office in some poor part of Birmingham or London? Well, no. It had an office in Millbank Tower [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millbank_Tower], one of the most expensive office addresses in London. “Labour ran its 1997 General Election campaign from these offices; after the election, the party vacated its headquarters at John Smith House, Walworth Road SE17, to move to Millbank. Five years later, however, the £1 million per annum rent forced the party to vacate the tower.” [Wikipedia]
Rent of a million a year? Well...”The United Nations also had offices in the tower, but moved out in June 2003, also citing high rents.” [Wikipedia].
Yet “Our Future Our Choice” had an office there. So who paid? The EU, via a couple of cut-outs.
Well, “Our Future Our Choice” is now defunct, but “Femi” has tried to use his publicity from 2019 to fuel a political and msm career for himself. I recall seeing him once recently on the late-night Sky News talking shop (the name of which escapes me). None other than Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair’s old spinmeister, has commended him by tweet.
Femi’s msm career has hardly rocketed, but he is seen or heard occasionally on radio or TV. I suppose that he scrapes a easy modest living out of it. Hard to say. He seems to want to become an MP, but I doubt that that will work out, even in today’s risibly-poor political milieu.
An example of the “Great Replacement”?
Below, an example of the pathetically-poor thinking skills of “Femi Sorry”…
Is there anything in the idea of a coalition of “anti-Tory” parties? Well, I blogged in the past about how Labour’s only hope in 2019 would have been to get a plurality of MPs at the General Election, and then to have cobbled together a coalition with the SNP and others.
Never happened, because Nigel Farage stabbed his own Brexit Party in the back and betrayed his own candidates, standing them down so that the Conservative Party had a free run in almost all constituencies. That alone gave the Conservative Party its present 80-seat majority. In return, we see Farage still given credence by the msm (he even has his own radio show). He may also have received a multi-million bung offshore (though I concede that I have no evidence of that, just a strong suspicion).
If the Labour Party were able to treat with the SNP at the next General Election, then what? What would the SNP want? Nothing less than a binding Independence referendum, or even a pledge of Independence outright.
If Scotland became “independent”, though, the Labour Party at Westminster would lose, on present showing, its only Scottish Labour MP, and also the support of 47 SNP MPs, as well as that of the 4 Scottish LibDem MPs.
That would leave the speculated grand “anti-Tory” coalition with 226 Labour and Labour Co-op MPs, 7 LibDems, 3 Plaid Cymru, 2 Northern Irish SDLP, 1 Northern Irish Alliance MP, and Caroline Lucas, the “solitary Green”. 240 MPs altogether, even with all of those parties on board.
As against that, again on present showing, the Conservative Party would have 358 MPs (the present complement of 364 minus the 6 Scottish Conservatives).
Result? A Conservative Party majority of 118.
It can be seen that the “anti-Tory” grand coalition mooted is a house built on sand.
The political system is sclerotic. The public in England itself has a “choice” between “two main parties” which are now (Corbyn having been booted out) again very similar. We see that vis a vis the “panicdemic”. The official Opposition is not only not opposing, but actually saving the Government’s bacon, as seems likely next week, in the “Coronavirus” debate. The only real opposition, as I predicted, is now coming from Conservative Party MPs.
Proportional Representation is necessary in the UK, but unlikely at present. Even that, though, will not save Labour. Once FPTP is gone, the System parties lose a degree of “credibility” that they now have over upstart parties.

…and then, just as the people were in despair at ever escaping from “the virus” (i.e. from government “measures”, “rules” etc), there appeared a white knight on the horizon— the vaccine(s). Moreover, vaccines developed in a fraction of the usual time. Am I wrong in being just a little suspicious? It just has something of the “Kool Aid” time about it…[in fact, the lethal drink at Jonestown was a different but similar soft drink, Flavor Aid: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonestown].
Not that I believe that the vaccines are actually going to kill everyone. Certainly not in the short term. There may, however, be unexpected aspects which will only become known to people generally in the future.
My very provisional assessment of this Buckby is that he seems to be being funded by a North American “think tank”, possibly “libertarian”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frontier_Centre_for_Public_Policy. He is now “anti-racist”, which for me is a negative, looking at the world today. I have to say, also, that anyone who thought that Anne Marie Waters had anything interesting to offer politically, must be lacking in judgment.

A particularly heartbreaking and heartless example of the “virus” madness that has swept the country for most of 2020.
The “British” Government has largely abandoned “lawful, peaceful means”, so why should we be restricted to them??
Once again, I did better than John Rentoul. He got 3/10 in this week’s (harder than usual?) quiz. My score was 5/10, or 4/10 if my answer to question 8 was insufficiently precise. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 2, 6, 7, 9.

Unemployed “antifa” cheerleader, and perennial grifter, Mike Stuchbery, now resident in Stuttgart, vicariously threatens young people in the UK with persecution for their political views. Whatever did happen to the nearly £12,000 that he and “Roanna @antifashwitch” raised from 700 mugs via GoFundMe so that, supposedly, Stuchbery could sue Tommy Robinson?
A year or so on, and nothing has happened.
I only know what I see online about it all, but think that the police fraud people ought to take a look at all that. I am not convinced that Stuchbery and “Roanna @antifashwitch” ever intended to use the monies to fund a legal action.
Increasingly, I am finding the truth about all of this elusive. The virus is terrible but, paradoxically, it seems that not many people out of a given population get it and, of those, many and perhaps most do not need any medical care at all. However, quite a number of people are dying of it or at least with it. All one can do is hope that it will go away soon…
There is certainly an unthinking tick-box madness abroad (again) in the UK. Look at this:
Out patrolling the meon valley to find motorcycles out for a pleasure ride. If the government request wont keep you at home we can still deal with motoring offences. Come on people #StayAtHomeSaveLives #23701 pic.twitter.com/GvVHn0eWea
A motorcyclist out for a pleasure ride may be a nuisance but is not going to infect anyone with Coronavirus (or be infected) while riding. The police, once again (as with so-called “hate crime”) seem to be zealously getting rather above themselves.
The same is true of people out driving. They may be congesting roads (though not at present, surely?) but they are scarcely posing any risk of infection to themselves or others.
We are policing the roads as usual. Only drive if its essential. Please drive/ride safely because you can help control demand on the NHS. Thank you #JOUCVUpic.twitter.com/EXnmwtTH2m
Increasingly, the police in this country seem to be near-useless when it matters— and, when it does not matter, a petty and oppressive nuisance. By all means, do what has to be done to stop infections by this virus, but for God’s sake use some intelligence!
If the police say that all they are doing is enforcing the (new and seemingly not well thought-through) “law”, then that law needs to be amended as quickly as it is being passed.
As written above, the police seem to have zealously gone beyond even the strict “regulations” laid down by the Government. The police tweeted this:
Needless to add, I hope, the above does not represent what the police are pleased to call “the new rules”.
Greta Nut wants more attention (again)…
Funniest story of the day so far: Greta Thunberg has released a statement to the effect that she has been “self-isolating” since her return to Sweden 2-3 weeks ago. She claims to have had symptoms of Coronavirus but has not been tested.
Translation? She has not been in the news since her ridiculous visit to the UK recently, and in fact has become an irrelevance and/or yesterday’s news, so she wants more mass media attention. She (and those behind her) are therefore jumping onto the Coronavirus bandwagon.
The “caring, sharing” multikulti society…
One final tweet to give you a bit of #corona good news tonight: a bureaucrat in Leicester council was caught stealing from a foodbank. He'd been passing food meant for poor families to his cousin to sell in his shop. The scumbag was sacked today & both reported to police.
I wonder what the criminal’s ethnic background might be?
A word of truth…
We can't go to the pub due to #CoronaCrisisuk, and that's understandable & accepted. But UK airports are still open to people from #corona disaster zones. This is some special sort of multicult death wish. "We must be mad, literally mad… "https://t.co/JBTvwcV39U
We are told that The Great Replacement is a “conspiracy theory”, yet you only have to look around you to see that this “theory” has a great deal of factual underpinning.
During the long haul of the Brexit stuff in Parliament in 2018 and 2019, the intensely irritating figure of an African called Femi Oluwole was ubiquitous. Now 30, his sole achievement seems to have been the completion of a degree in Law and French at Nottingham. He comes from affluent Nigerian parents who are both medical doctors resident in the UK. Though his Wikipedia entry states that he “has worked in NGOs and human rights agencies”, none is listed; I think that whatever he did (if anything) can probably be dismissed as rather unimportant and probably trifling.
Here is what a former “colleague” thinks of him:
@Femi_Sorry was the co-founder of the company I used to work for. He once rung my colleague on Friday night (during her birthday party) and told her he was going to fire the entire team and run @OFOCBrexit on his own. He is a horrible person so good choice here @UKLabourhttps://t.co/oLKiXhJbvL
“Femi” is now in the news (well, in Twitter news at least) for having been expelled from the Labour Party (which he joined only recently). He is also to be found opining for money (I presume) on the pathetic Sky News talking shop, The Pledge. Other deadheads there include ignorant tabloid scribbler Carole Malone and Boris Johnson’s sister, Rachel Johnson. Nick Ferrari, the very pro-Israel radio presenter, seems to be the main talking head on the show.
“Femi” is just one example of the Great Replacement in action. Another is the now-blatant campaign on UK television (soaps, dramas, ads etc) to show black men breeding with white and usually blonde Englishwomen.
When I was still at school, in the early 1970s, there would sometimes be an earnest discussion on whatever Newsnight’s almost identical predecessor was then called (Newsnight as such only broadcast from 1980). The subject? Would there ever be an ethnic minority MP or even Prime Minister? Well, we now know the answer to the first part of that question (Jews were never mentioned, so they must have been regarded by the BBC as “white”).
The same is true on TV and radio. In fact, the fewer blacks and browns that there are in any particular region of the UK, the more ethnic minority presenters and reporters there are on local TV. This is not reflective of the society, it’s social engineering with a very obvious agenda (cf. the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan).
Fact v. fiction
I have seen things which, though they happened, would seem far-fetched in fiction. This is, in fact, not as uncommon as many think. Look at the 1973 novel, The Camp of the Saints, in which old ships and boats invade the shores of Mediterranean France carrying millions of black and brown migrant-invaders. That could never happen! (we used to think…).
Er, yes. It is afrightening read, though surprisingly quiet on the Babylonian effects of the death of money, espcially in Berlin. I have litle doubt that the German money catastrophe, by demoralising the former middle classes, brought Nazism intio being. https://t.co/qbMlhdXYGS
Hitchens is obviously referring to the likelihood that the Rishi Sunak “giveaway” will weaken the pound sterling.
Afternoon drive in the sun, with “Government-approved” stamped on it
Another little (and before any little person “reports” me, fully Government-approved and permitted…) outing this afternoon. Chemist in the nearby town first and then a drive of about 4 miles to a little village shop where —mirabile dictu!— I was able to buy a loaf of freshly-baked wholemeal bread with seeds, albeit at the rather rip-off price of £2. In fact, there were about 30 loaves for sale, mostly identical. Whether that was because a delivery had just arrived (though this was after 1700 hrs) or because the bread shortage panic has now ended, I have no idea. I hope the latter.
I have no idea whether Peter Hitchens is right or wrong about Coronavirus, but tweeter “Rob H. Williamson” is yet another person who, having himself accepted a narrative, thinks that others who express disagreement, dissent or doubt are “incorrect”, “wrong”, and probably need to be repressed, “re-educated” or punished for not going along with the officially-approved narrative in full. cf. the “holocaust” farrago (and by the by I see that tweeter “@robhwilliamson” is a exponent of the Israeli “martial art” thug discipline, Krav Maga).
A few more interesting tweets from Peter Hitchens and others
This is astonishing, if true. Can anyone confirm or refute? If correct, Covid deaths in Italy are being grossly, significantly overstated. https://t.co/8LWXqy8VzI
The self-described UK “Left”, pathetic toadies of the State
I myself rarely use those all but meaningless terms, “Right”, “Left”, “far right” (etc) as descriptors. Those who self-describe thus are now not the same species as those who might have described themselves thus historically.
Time and again, I see such people almost begging for State repression, censorship, restriction. The Coronavirus situation is merely the latest example. Such people are forever begging those who head Twitter, Facebook etc to censor those with whom the self-describing “Left” disagrees, demanding that employers or professional regulators sack those of a generally nationalist viewpoint, or demanding heavier State repression and stricter laws against the “Left’s” political enemies.
Old-style socialism, in all forms, from social democracy to Maoism and the puerile worship of Che Guevara and the like, died in or about 1989, essentially. What we now see is a kind of powerless rump, which poses as activist multikulti “socialist” politics but is really just a facade without substance.
