Migration-invasion shuttle service provided by Border Force (“Border Farce“), Royal Navy, and the suborned RNLI.
I have tried to cover this issue before on the blog. Not easy, mainly because earnings of barristers in private practice (i.e. not salaried employees working for government or companies) vary widely, indeed wildly. Anything from almost pennies to a million or more a year.
The general public tends to think of barristers averaging at least a couple of hundred thousand a year, but in fact many (especially those doing legally-aided criminal and family law work) are earning well under £100K, and many of those are making below £50K.
Needless to say, the public does not feel very sorry for those earning as much or more than they themselves do, but at the same time, barristers do have many extra expenses, which can take thousands or even tens of thousands off their gross income.
In the end, there has to be an effective court system, and that does mean having at least a corps of advocates, and that composed of at least reasonably proficient persons, which in turn posits the need for adequate remuneration.
Seems unaware that “Queen’s Counsel” is spelled thus, not “queen’s council“. Writes books on the criminal justice systems of several countries, apparently. Also, it should have read “German lawyer“, not “German Lawyer“. Oh, and “principle“, not “priniciple“…
I do not have comment re. that map specifically, beyond what I wrote yesterday, i.e. that the Russian immediate strategy seems to be to draw a line from Kharkov to Dnipro (former Dnepropetrovsk) and then down to where Russian forces are near Zaporozhye, to defeat all Ukrainian forces east of that line, and to occupy everywhere east of that line.
The Russians are now playing what is called, in chess, a positional game, relying on broad strategy and slow accretions, rather than swift tactics and bold moves.
Ukraine is now, having been for 30 years close to being a “failed state”, a complete shell of a state, at least in the east. The latest statistics show that its economy has collapsed by 50% or more already. It has limited vehicle fuel, and the besieged areas lack not only fuel, but food, ammunition, and even water in some cases.
Russian forces in Ukraine face logistical problems —unsurprising in a country the size of France— but not shortages as such. Time is on the Russian side in that sense. Their forces can be resupplied.
I should think that the Russians will start to target any large Ukrainian troop concentrations, as well as resupply lines, using more powerful missiles launched from inside Russia.

Good move, but probably wasted on most of the “wiggers”…
The System across Europe, and especially EU-Europe, is so corrupt and fake that one almost gives up hope at times, but if Marine le Pen can get to the Presidency of France, there might be hope for a real “new order” in European diplomacy and politics, for a halt to the crazed and headlong rush to war with Russia, and indeed for a rapprochement with Russia.
The “Valhalla”! Interesting name. Sign of the times?
I am not much of a car buff. In my mid/late teens I rode first a Vespa scooter (max speed about 55 mph), and then a 250cc Suzuki motorbike (max speed 108 mph, accomplished one late evening on the then —1976— almost empty M23, from Brighton to Surrey), but only had a licence to drive a car from the age of 42, and then only because I was living on a Caribbean island where there were virtually no taxis, and no public transport.
I have now held a UK licence for about 20 years, with almost no problem: a couple of small accidents —not my fault, in my opinion— and a couple of speeding tickets, the speeding offences both in 2005 (40 mph in a 30 mph area, and 97 mph on a 70 mph road).
Make that three if you include getting caught by a motorbike cop in Normandy in 2007 (going about 95 mph on a ~66 mph dual carriageway road). On-the-spot fine.
A few times, at about 2 or 3 in the morning, on empty pay-autoroutes in Northern France, I cruised at up to 130 mph in my then car (a Volvo), but rarely saw another vehicle, and was never bothered by the police.
I usually potter around my local district at about 30 mph now, so would have no use for the Aston Martin Valhalla, which can apparently reach speeds of up to 217 mph.
Actually, cars such as the Valhalla are symptoms of a wider pointlessness in world —and especially Western— society. A car that can go 217 mph, yet which will mostly be seen crawling at 5 mph in the congested traffic of central London or Monte Carlo, or along the roads of Bel-Air at 20 mph, and probably driven by a 20-year-old Gulf Arab.
Ha ha! Good news! If the “monstrous carbuncle” returns, the only solution will be to hire bulldozers…
The intentions are certainly not “worthy“, but yet another expression of Jewish tribal supremacism. If “they” want a so-called “memorial” (to events which may or, more likely, may not have occurred, or at least not occurred as narrated, nearly a century ago, and in another part of Europe, and which had nothing to do with Britain anyway) then let “them” put it on a small artificial “Boris island” in the Thames Estuary. Come to that, put “Boris” on it as well.
One wonders why the Russians have not broken up the rail system in Ukraine. Is it because they want as many Ukrainians as possible to flee westward?
The only way Russia can now achieve anything looking like an overall victory is to flood Ukraine with hundreds of thousands of troops, and then strike at Kiev, in particular, with its best in-theatre units.
The present Russian tactics, of making almost random missile or other attacks on urban targets here and there, are not only giving Russia a terrible reputation across the world, but not achieving anything from a military point of view. They seem little more than malicious, and are certainly being presented that way by the Kiev regime and generally in the Western msm, on social media etc.
If Putin does not get a grip, Russia itself will eventually implode.
Yes, I see the opinion polls saying that 60% or 70% or more of Russians “support” the invasion and war, but even if so, that is volatile; it can change.
In my own lifetime, I have seen not only governments but whole regimes of society, whole states, implode. The Soviet Union itself, which looked unassailable even a few years before it collapsed; the DDR (East Germany), which I visited only a year before it collapsed and then ceased to exist; Rhodesia, where I was in 1977, and which gave up its struggle only two years later to become yet another corrupt and shambolic black-ruled failed state (Zimbabwe); South Africa; Iran. Others, too.
Perhaps Putin’s Russia will go the same way as its predecessor, the Soviet Union, and just fall apart internally; the EU and West generally might do the same before too long.
…because, as we all know, history either started in about 2010 or, at most, in the early 1940s (with the “holocaust” farrago)!
When will this nonsense end? I suppose that the answer is “in 2022 or 2023,when the West, the NWO/ZOG West, triggered the Third World War, and both Europe and North America were all but obliterated, together with their crazed ‘woke’ societies“.
“Climate change”, “Refugees Welcome”, “Black Lives Matter”, “Covid”, “Ukraine”— what’s next? What nonsense is next??
The Jew-Zionist element on Twitter is already crowing because persecuted singer-songwriter and satirist, Alison Chabloz, has apparently been convicted again under the notorious “bad law” of the Communications Act 2003, s.127, which may be repealed in the next year or so.
Once again, the persecution and prosecution of Alison Chabloz was instigated by “the usual suspects”, primarily the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, [“CAA”] who have publicly admitted targeting Alison Chabloz over a period of (now) about 6 years, at least.
It seems that Alison is now on bail, pending a sentencing hearing next Thursday afternoon.
Strange. The msm is constantly yapping about how, for example, Russian dissidents are under attack by the Russian state, yet here, in our once supposedly “free” country, a lady is prosecuted and convicted (and has previously actually been imprisoned) for singing satirical songs about the “you know whos”.
Charles Dickens is fortunate that he is dead; were he still alive, no doubt “they” would come after him as well, and he might also be sharing the dock with, among others, Shakespeare, Wagner, Chopin, Schumann, Hilaire Belloc, G.K. Chesterton, the Brothers Grimm, John Buchan, and thousands of other great and/or original thinkers and artists.
Simple-minded and basically hysterical young women of that sort have been the mainstay of all sorts of emotionally-driven campaigns resulting in Very Bad Results over the past half-century or so: decolonialization, anti-apartheid/pro-ANC Mandela-worship, “Black Lives Matter”, “Refugees Welcome”, “Climate Change”, “Covid”, etc etc. “Ukraine” too, now.
Listen to that hysteric! For example, Madagascar’s problems are, says she, caused by “climate change”, not the fact that countries like Madagascar are inhabited by backward and often totally useless people, some of whom are the corrupt, shambolic, and useless “governments” of such failed “states”.
Fascinating to trawl back through Twitter, in that you see people tweeting this week the same sort of stuff, indeed often exactly the same stuff, that they were tweeting 4+ years ago. Pathetic. Pointless.
Saw one of my own comments, but on the GAB system, from nearly 4 years ago, from when (in mid-2018) I was expelled from Twitter at the instigation of a pack of Jew Zionists. Most of my tweets are now unavailable, but a few were copied and reposted, either by supporters or enemies, and so are still available, as are a few old GAB remarks (I do not bother with GAB now, nor with other social media platforms).
Still seems very arguable to me.
Ha ha! Below, another of my old tweets, reposted by some idiot angry that the Guardian scribbler Martin Belam used it in his semi-obit. piece about deceased and once-famous actor, Peter Wyngarde:
Interesting to see, now again reading that Guardian article online, that my above tweet and also a few others are now just blank spaces. Testament to the ever-intensifying censorship on Twitter.
Incidentally, I see from those old tweets about me, that yet another person who declared war on me (online) seems to have died (at least his Twitter account trailed off over 18 months ago, though only just now noticed by me).
That has happened to rather many Twitter twits, most of whom were just “me too” pile-on idiots who neither had had any direct contact with me at all, nor thought to behave decently, or just politely, in tweeting to, or about, me. Good riddance to them all.
In fact, at present a few other long-term, malicious, and venomous anti-Millard tweeters are presently in very poor conditions of health (which came upon them suddenly, it seems), and may not be around for much longer. As the Chinese proverb has it, “the stars in their courses fight on the side of the just“…
Putting it more lightly, #TenGreenBottles…

Meanwhile, the sinister part-Jew clown posing as Prime Minister stokes up conflict with Russia so that he can play the Poundland Churchill. The real Churchill was partly responsible for the start, and certainly for the continuing after 1940, of WW2. Will the “second time as farce” Churchill am-dram copyist, “Boris”, trigger WW3? If so, “goodbye England”…
I doubt that most French voters really know Macron’s full political and career background, in particular the Jewish cabal that has always pushed and promoted him.

The holy multikulti society programme must never be challenged. That’s why it happened as it did.
Exactly. There are supposed to have been nearly five million “cases” in the UK last week alone! Hardly anyone even felt unwell. The whole Covid scam “panicdemic” train has hit the buffers now. It has just become completely and hilariously nonsensical.
The social, medical, and economic results are, however, not at all funny.
Were I a dictator in power, I would hang Professor Ferguson, and some others, high high high…
…and if anyone gets angry at the MP-parasites, and so much as emails them to express that, the toytown police are at the door in a flash…So much for our “democratic” “freedoms”…
As frequently expressed previously, Russia should have been able to seize the most important parts of Ukraine swiftly, efficiently, and without massive damage or loss of life. Sadly, that failed miserably. Russia now has to fight for its own very future down the line.
The Ukraine invasion has become the Ukraine war. It is a ghastly bloody mess. I hate what has happened, and feel very sorry for those suffering, but Russia must now fight on, and win the eastern and southern parts of the country, come what may.
Putin must call up the three million reserve troops Russia has, and then just steamroller the Kiev regime.
This comes close to becoming an active participant in a war against Russia.
A point I have made repeatedly for many years.
The old idea that Britain is (or rather, was) “a free country under law” has become “Britain is a facade of a free country under law, but behind that really is, or is becoming, an unfree country bound by arbitrary decisions and instant fake ‘laws’ and regulations“.
Peter Hitchens has, over the past couple of years (since the “panicdemic” police state emerged) made similar claims about his Twitter account.
Once again, Evil poses as something “good”…
France, like Britain, needs a cultural purge. Followed by “Nuremberg” laws.
Jonathan Sumption was one of the first barristers, in the 1990s, if not the first barrister, to earn over a million pounds per year in fees (albeit that a few pre-WW2 barristers made a similar real amount, in the money of their day). He later became a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary, aka a “Law Lord”, i.e. a Justice of the Supreme Court (nb. not Lord Chief Justice— that is something else). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Sumption,_Lord_Sumption.
The above post is factually (and grammatically) inaccurate in that, but not wrong otherwise.
Now, because he has spoken out against the trashing of civil liberties and formerly accepted rights since the start of the “panicdemic”, Sumption is regarded by the System (of which he was, in a sense, part), and the msm, as a “conspiracy theorist” and effectively a crank.
Wake up, England!
I scored only 5/10 this week, same as political journalist John Rentoul, though I really knew one more (question 10) but it slipped my mind. I did not know, therefore, the answers to not only question 10 but also questions 1, 4, 6, and 9.
Ha ha! You see the same lack of self-awareness in the Zionist Jew milieu online.
When I was up before a Bar Disciplinary Tribunal (which eventually wrongfully and unlawfully disbarred me in October 2016), one of my defence points was that the (eventually, only 5, out of 150,000+) tweets I had tweeted, and which were adjudged so offensive that I had, supposedly, no right to tweet them, had been tweeted in my personal capacity; also, that my Twitter account made no mention in its profile that I was a barrister.
The Tribunal, and the Bar Standards Board, twisted a very few other tweets to “prove” the contrary. All the Jews applauded both that (and my wrongful/unlawful disbarment).
Later, some of those very Jews, and who are solicitors or barristers, faced the same or similar problems as I had, but made the same plea, that their comments were made as part of their non-professional life. Other Jews weighed in on their side. What a pack of hypocrites they are (too)!
On the wider point, I have been blogging and (before the Jew lobby had my much-read Twitter account removed in 2018), often tweeted about the “privatization of public space” online. That also formed part of my talk to the London Forum in 2017.
On Twitter and other online fora, one has no rights beyond very limited contractual ones. There needs to be an independent appeal process but I fear that the Jewish element would infiltrate that (too), were it ever to exist.
As for the £37 BILLION completely and utterly wasted on NHS “test and trace”, how infuriatingly crazy, when that money could have gone to new rail infrastructure, hospitals doing proper clinical work etc.
We need a mixture of ignoring the bastards, exposing them, and rising up against them.
All too many white people (in the UK too) simply accept the agenda being pursued. All too many ignorant and/or ill-intentioned schoolteachers and officials are poisoning the minds of the children, without sanction.
I notice, in that clip, among the most guilty of the school board officials was one “Ziegler”. As they say, “every single time”…
Modest 6/10 this week, same as political journalist John Rentoul, who also scored 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 4, 6, and 10.
So down the line, could it be Russia+most of Europe+ (?) even the UK v. both the USA and China? Not an easy situation for Russia, not easy for Europe, but it could lay the foundation for a later Eurasian superstate.
I have written a bit about prepping in the UK context. The blog posts can be found using the search box on this blog, or by clicking on one of the list of subjects (on the left of the screen).
“You carry in your blood the holy inheritance of your fathers and forefathers. You do not know those who have vanished in endless ranks into the darkness of the past. But they all live in you and walk in your blood upon the earth that consumed them in battle and toil and in which their bodies have long decayed.
Your blood is therefore something holy. In it your parents gave you not only a body, but your nature. To deny your blood is to deny yourself. No one can change it. But each decides to grow the good that one has inherited and suppress the bad. Each is also given will and courage.
You do not have only the right, but also the duty to pass your blood on to your children, for you are a member of the chain of generations that reaches from the past into eternity, and this link of the chain that you represent must do its part so that the chain is never broken.
But if your blood has traits that will make your children unhappy and burdens to the state, then you have the heroic duty to be the last. The blood is the carrier of life. You carry in it the secret of creation itself. Your blood is holy, for in it God’s will lives.” [SS Verlag: material for instruction of the Hitlerjugend]
Had their victim been able to defend himself, the Jews would immediately have presented themselves as Jewish “victims”, attacked because of “antisemitism”.
The new Australian multikulti “woke” biosecurity police state gets worse daily now. If there is no rebellion against this, Australians will be serfs forever.
A certain section of the French population found free rein for their vindictive sadism. Often Communists, some Jews, but various types, usually those who had never fought German Occupation themselves anyway. There is a certain type that does that kind of cruelty. The same was true in Northern Italy, and elsewhere (e.g. Netherlands) after hostilities had ended.
The Chinese leadership must be quietly amused to see the UK, and the rest of Europe, becoming a dustbin for the detritus of the world.
We saw the same phenomena in 2020 in the UK: the worst-performing police forces (Derbyshire, Devon and Cornwall, Wales etc) going after British people walking on moors, on beaches, in woods, and so on, police “woodentops” even checking people’s shopping purchases to see whether (in opinion of said woodentops) they were “reasonable” purchases! Even North Korea did not do that…
The very same police forces are also the ones most obviously in the pocket of the Jewish lobby, having prosecuted, in 2021, “antisemitic” and other “unapproved” online posts and the like, posted by dissidents: Alison Chabloz, Graham Hart, “Sven Longshanks”, as well as many others.
Jacinda Ardern: completely crazed, or just another tool of the transnational conspiracy? Maybe both.
A problem of comprehension
Earlier in the week, my car needed AA assistance. It did not break down, but the fuel flap locked itself, meaning no fuel could be put into the otherwise unlocked tank. I was at a filling station when I discovered the problem. A silly problem but —short of forcing the flap open— insoluble for me.
I am an AA member. Whether that is cost-effective is arguable. The last time I had called them out to assist was about 3 years before. £13+ pcm for three years is about £450, but when you are stuck somewhere in the evening, with no fuel left…
It took 20 minutes or more just to get through to an operator. When I did, I was told that arrival of assistance would be about 2 hours! In fact, it was less than 1 hour.
The AA patrolman, the (to me) oddly-named Wayne, was both polite and efficient. He had to take out interior panels and remove a solenoid (whatever that is), but that fixed the problem. Job done. Excellent.
I later thought that I would leave a favourable mention for the patrolman on the AA feedback system. Too few people commend good service. So I left that favourable feedback, while mentioning that the overall wait for assistance had been fairly long.
To my surprise, someone at the AA thought that my comments constituted a complaint, when in fact I had meant to be favourable. I was told by email that the AA would compensate me to the tune of £10, but the next paragraph said that a cheque for £20 would be issued.
I replied, thanking the AA but clarifying that I was not complaining as such but wishing to commend the patrolman, despite the wait.
The upshot? A cheque for £30 has arrived! I had not asked for money, but thank you…
The AA is still a pretty useful organization.
What interests me, though, is the apparent lack of comprehension. I was not making complaint, certainly not formally.
This is a trend that I see on Twitter, in the msm etc. One example would be the person (and there are many such) whose Twitter headline says “free speech” and “civil rights” but who actually wants to repress the speech with which that person disagrees…Another example, even more common, the people who say that they support caring, love, openness, but then tweet (about those with whom they disagree) that they are evil and should be locked up forever!
I saw one of the latter retweeting a recent tweet of the malicious “CAA” Jew-Zionist “charity” about Alison Chabloz. This retweeter, apparently a former nurse and matron, said that Alison is “scum” and that she should be locked up and the key thrown away! For making up songs and satire, and taking part in Internet “radio” discussions! A little research discovered that the same retweeter is apparently suffering from a possibly terminal and very unpleasant medical condition which may have affected her mind. That too is all too common on Twitter.
There again, there are the many who imagine that the UK can take millions, tens of millions, of migrant-invader immigrants (many of which are totally useless) and yet still offer a wraparound welfare state!
Comprehension levels are falling fast…
…and most of the self-describing “Left”, “socialist”, “civil rights” fakes on Twitter will openly or covertly applaud such actions of the police state in Australia or elsewhere…
In fact, drawn about 6 months ago, but still apposite.
Seems that some British people are still willing to fight for freedom, even if they are a small minority.
Yet whose are the loudest voices angrily shouting when the white peoples of Europe want to keep Europe white? Jews…
The only reason to support NWO/ZOG puppet “Boris” as (posing as) Prime Minister is because Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer would be even worse…and I think that that is where most of the British, certainly the English, people are politically right now.
“…even in this new normal of fear and hysteria where all concerns are passed over for the sake of coronavirus, where university students can be told they must wait before evacuating in the event of a fire, I expected reason and decency to prevail. I wouldn’t have believed you could be considered unworthy of employment because you object to being treated like a muzzled dog. Decency has died... Where are those who claim to champion the rights and conditions of workers over the oppressive capitalist corporations? I fear they will be with the other lot.” [Joe Audritt, writing in Conservative Woman online magazine].
My view is that if employers or others try to impose their own “laws”, in other words ignore the wider English law, then those adversely affected have the right to take the law into their own hands too. See how those petty tyrants like that…
As for trade unions, they are now completely useless— and just part of the System.
Yes. It is in a sense amazing that people cannot see that two superficially-similar schools in two very different neighbourhoods will attract very different intakes. Not only in the UK, but anywhere.
In Paris, it would be idle to suggest that the lycees around the 15th and 16th arrondisements, eg those near to the Bir-Hakeim metro, are equivalent to those in poor suburbs many miles away. Likewise in Moscow. Even under Stalin, the “Kremlin Kids” and lesser-known, but still privileged, jeunesse-dorees went to schools far better than those far away from the central areas of the city. Selection by post-code, if you like.
It is easier to re-engineer society on paper than it is to do it on the ground. I recall some people known to a friend of mine in the 1980s, who were extremely wealthy by some means or other (I think inheritance), and who were “socialists” of some sort. Labour Party members, I think. They loved the fact that they lived in some ghastly part of Southwark (South London) and so, apparently, were able to tell people that; in fact their home was a beautiful house in a similar street —I went there once— but untouched (unlike most of the area) by WW2 Luftwaffe bombing or (far more destructive) postwar redevelopment.
The family in question had three young children, and to that end employed three nannies, who lived in the large basement of the house, which I think had 4 floors. At weekends, the children were left in the care of the nannies while the parents flew to Scotland for house parties or even just for lunch. On paper? Presumably, “socialists and Labour Party members”, who “lived in South London”, “with their three children”.
In the pre-WW2 period, hypocrisy was thought more common in the Conservative Party, but Labour soon caught up. Now, I should say that there is not much to choose.
I prefer outright Conservatives, or real socialist ideologues, usually, to the sort of self-deluding hypocrites often seen around today.
Exactly right. For British people though, not unwanted interlopers, whether they be economic migrants, “refugees”, or migrant-invaders of whatever other stripe.
When “democracy”, in the sense that we know it in Western and Central Europe, fails to do the job, the people start to look elsewhere. It is already happening all over Europe, even if so far only in the negative sense, i.e. apathy at elections.
Notre Dame, which as I write is still ablaze, is of course at the very heart of Paris and, metaphorically, France too. One could point to other buildings in that latter regard, perhaps the Sainte-Chapelle, the Sacre-Coeur, the Cathedral at Rheims, or even that of Chartres, but Notre-Dame symbolizes Paris, or did, until the secular landmark of the Eiffel Tower was constructed.
Like millions of visitors to Paris, I have been inside Notre-Dame a couple of times (as I have the Sainte-Chapelle, and the Sacre-Coeur with its unique atmosphere and where a Mass is continuously performed, 24 hours a day).
Sometimes, the burning of, e.g., a great building, is considered a symbolic event, marking a great change. One thinks of the Burning of Rome, the later Sack of Rome, the destruction of the great ancient Library of Alexandria, the Great Fire of London etc. In more modern times there was the deliberate burning of both the First Goetheanum in Switzerland (see Notes, below) and the Reichstag in Berlin.
Other catastrophic events can be —or be seen as— historically, politically or socially significant. When the Herald of Free Enterprise sank, in 1987, the very name made me wonder whether the era of “Thatcherism” was drawing to a close. It was. On a smaller scale, there was even speculation, at the time of the Marchioness disaster of 1989, as to the sociological meaning of it, if any (because so many well-heeled families in London, it was said, knew or were acquainted with one or more of the 51 people drowned and/or others on board).
Are these events causally connected in some way with the movement of history, or is it that human beings, having perhaps a premonition of coming events, attach meaning to large fires and other disasters? Was the fire at Windsor Castle in 1992 somehow connected with the events that hit the British Royal Family in 1992 and in the years after the Queen’s annus horribilis? It was certainly the case that, after hundreds were crushed to death at Khodinka Field while celebrating the crowning of Nikolai II in 1896, the “simple people” thought it a bad omen. Were they wrong?
France is facing an existential crisis still not fully accepted as such by most. The influx of Algerians, Tunisians and black Africans since the 1960s became a flood, a disastrous flood, many years ago.
France and particularly Paris is now under siege from those of non-European descent, some of which may have been born and (semi) educated in France, but who are, except in language (and sometimes even in that way) alien.
An extremely high proportion of the population of France (at least 30%) is now non-European, and that situation is worsening. At the same time, there is a pushback by the (real) French via the Gilets Jaunes movement and via support for Marine le Pen.
“President” Macron, a complete puppet of the Jewish lobby and New World Order, has instituted a “Zionist Occupation Government” in France via his pop-up “party” (facade), En Marche, which consists of random people from nowhere who were recruited almost overnight, thanks to funding from secretive sources.
Macron’s expressed policies are to ruin the French way of life and French society, and to put in its place a globalized bastard-American culture. His secret policies (the policies of those behind Macron) are no doubt worse yet. He has allowed yet more hordes of non-Europeans to flood into France. Paris itself has become a poubelle (dustbin) compared to what it was only a few decades ago.
I hope that some of Notre Dame can be saved. I wonder whether France can be, and what it might take to do it.
“Blood will stream over Europe until the nations become aware of the frightful madness which drives them in circles. And then, struck by celestial music and made gentle, they approach their former altars all together, hear about the works of peace, and hold a great celebration of peace with fervent tears before the smoking altars” [Novalis]
