Globalism at work…again. That, and a country (the UK) where people are now taught from childhood to be ashamed of their race, culture, history and former Empire. Also, the fact that much of the UK economy is in the hands of various kinds of foreigners, in this case Turkish, but more often Chinese, Jews, whatever.

Remarkable, coming from a long-term Con mouthpiece and supporter.

The time is coming when free speech, open debate etc will be banned by stealth and Lilliputian ties. To a large extent, in the UK and elsewhere, it has already happened— in the msm, in publishing, in academia etc. All areas, incidentally, where the Jew-Zionists often hold sway.

When Alexander the Great was confronted by the Gordian Knot, he realized that there was only one way to win— he drew his sword and cut the knot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordian_Knot.

Frightening. Also, rather facile.

They are also the most highly-educated generation on record. This year, a record number of 435,000 18-year-olds in Britain —like my students— will arrive on campus. And this higher education, for many, helps to explain why, alongside the slightly older Millennials, they are also the most socially liberal generation in history.

[Matt Goodwin blog].

The idea that attending a “university” (whether an ancient one or a 5-minute-old “McUniversity”) makes the attendee “highly-educated” is risible, looking at most of the graduates, let alone undergraduates.

Consistently, Zoomers are the most supportive of Britain re-joining the European Union, the most likely to think immigration is having positive effects, and to voice strong support for rising diversity in all its forms. When I asked my students to name the most pressing problems facing the country today they either said climate change or racism. Nobody, interestingly, mentioned the economy.

[Matt Goodwin blog].

Actually, his students sound like complete idiots. Obviously spouting the simplistic ideas pumped into them, for about 13 years, by semi-educated teachers, or via the BBC and other mass media..

Many of these Zoomer graduates are also coming of age amid what philosopher John Gray has called ‘hyper-liberalism’ —and what others call ‘left modernism’, ‘progressive authoritarianism’, or ‘woke’ politics. While its supporters are often driven by good intentions, this is a more dogmatic, moralistic, and polarising brand of politics which promotes much looser definitions of terms such as ‘racism’ and much stricter, if not oppressive, speech codes that are used to try and curtail discrimination.”

Personally, I suspect we are on the cusp of an entirely new cultural revolution in the West which will not only be driven by demands for more radical economic change but far more radical cultural and social change, too. And the Zoomers, as they trickle out of the universities into the institutions, will be in the driving seat of that revolution.

[Matt Goodwin blog].

Well, it may be possible to turn the current in a more social-national direction. If not, those people will not be required.

…and all of [see above] Matt Goodwin’s eagerly “woke” students can then clap the “diversity” —and their own “tolerance”— as a torrent of cheap non-white labour continues to flood in, rendering their useless degrees about as valuable as a used bus ticket.

I am happy to see the fake “Conservative” Party about to go down the plughole, hopefully for good. Downside is, of course, that equally-fake and wrongheaded Labour will thereby grow stronger, in a basically rigged and binary system.

Still, if the Con Party can be reduced to somewhere below 200 MPs (1997-2005 levels), perhaps to as few as 100, that would be a good start to breaking up the whole rotten system.

Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get even worse

Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get even worse.’

“Alt-right” schoolboy and “controlled opposition” GB News talking head, Tom Harwood, reports from the Con Party Conference.

What strikes me is how few delegates and visitors there are. Only the central part of the hall full. Would assess it as no more than 500 people. Not many, considering that the Conservative Party has 357 MPs.

Meanwhile, a Spectator scribbler thinks that the market should rule:

…though he is scarcely uncritical of the past 12 years of Con government: https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/what-do-the-tories-have-to-show-from-their-time-in-power-.

Reverting to his energy price theme, he writes (I have highlighted the key fact):

The core problem is that without Russian gas there isn’t enough energy to go around Europe. It’s a problem that has been compounded by the fact that half of France’s nuclear reactors have been offline this summer and Norway, a major supplier of hydroelectric power, has had record low rainfall. With limited supply and high demand, people are bidding against one another for energy use. Prices will rise, and keep rising, until demand is reduced sufficiently to match supply. That’s if the market is allowed to function.Part of the problem is that the Conservative party is just the Labour party on a five-year lag...

A far better idea would be to scrap the price cap entirely, letting households pay the full cost of their energy use while doling out massive quantities of cash to those on lower incomes or with higher needs. This would preserve price signals and the incentive to use less, while also giving people enough money to keep their homes warm.

Instead, Liz Truss is apparently planning to freeze household bills at or below £1,971, well below the actual market price of supply; the wholesale price alone for October-December is expected to be £2,491. The Times carries a slightly different version of the story where the cap is allowed to rise to £2,500 – still below the total cost of electricity.

[Sam Ashworth-Hayes, in the Spectator].

I agree with his first sentence, and have been —probably pointlessly— blogging (for 5 years) and tweeting (until the Jew fanatics had me expelled from Twitter in 2018) about how the UK should be getting closer to Russia and, indeed, leaving NATO in return for, (among many advantages) getting cheap or even (it is possible) near-free gas from Russia, which would solve our energy problem overnight.

Instead of which, “Boris”-idiot, and now the stupid Liz Truss “ho”, have been giving billions in various ways to the Jew dictatorship in Kiev, and even threatening Russia with nuclear attack via “our” (controlled in reality by the USA) Trident nuclear submarines.

In fact, that Spectator article is worth reading in full. Ashworth-Hayes concludes by looking at the wider background:

Part of the problem is that the Conservative party is just the Labour party on a five-year lag; once Starmer suggested freezing prices, the blue team were inevitably going to follow along at some point. But a bigger problem is that the Tories are increasingly the party of the non-working and economically inactive.

The Tory vote is old. Pensioners don’t work and don’t pay much in taxes. They certainly don’t benefit from investments that pay off 20 years down the line. They’re very happy to rack up massive bills in the present day and pass them off to their grandchildren. And they vote in massive numbers.

This gives Conservative politicians strong incentives to find ways to take from the young and the future to give to the old and the present-day. It is toxic in the long term – we have a dysfunctional housing market, twisted to prop up pensioner assets, and high taxes to fund pensioner healthcare and pensions that are destroying family formation and living standards among young people. This is the only way the current Conservative party can see itself clinging on to power. Changing the prime minister isn’t enough to change that.

Well, there is much truth in all that, and if the “grey vote” wakes up to the fact that Liz Truss —albeit in 1995, aged 20, so be it— suggested scrapping the State Pension entirely, then the Con Party will rapidly pass into history.

The one demographic that votes Con heavily and actually votes is the (mainly) English “grey vote”, however defined (I am really talking about the 60+ age group). If that goes, the Conservative Party also goes.

Well-regarded“? That idiot who, after a few too many glasses of whisky, shouted out that the Scottish regiments had beaten Russia in the Crimean War (according to him) and so the British Army could beat Russia today. 170 years later.

Britain has 60-200 nuclear weapons and a land area of 93,600 square miles. Russia has about 6,000 nuclear weapons and a land area of 6,601,000 square miles (about 71 times the size of the UK).

As to the “conference”, looks as though only a few dozen people are bothering to do more than drink in bars.

Is there anything the Jews will not complain about? The fact is that Schindler’s Ark, the novel (yes, novel) on which the film Schindler’s List was based, is a work of fiction: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schindler%27s_Ark. The fact that Jews have “edited” the Wikipedia entry for Schindler’s List, the film of the book, to refer to the book as a “non-fiction novel” is meaningless, as is that term itself, the more usual term being “faction”.

The famous “faction” novel by Frederick Forsyth, The Day of the Jackal, is not “non-fiction” just because a few characters in it (eg President de Gaulle) actually existed. The book is still basically fiction; so is Schindler’s Ark and the film based on it.

As a matter of fact, Schindler’s Ark was not even written by someone who experienced Germany or Poland during WW2; it was written by an Australian, Thomas Keneally, who, at the material time, was 5-10 years old and who only left Australia for the first time in 1968. Schindler’s Ark was written and published in 1982. Keneally seems to have visited Poland in or about 1980, not long before the novel was published.

Many of his novels are reworkings of historical material, although modern in their psychology and style

I recently assessed the “Bootstrap Cook” on the blog, having seen the Twitter (etc) storm that started a couple of months ago. https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.

This England

Saw the first episode of This England, following the pretty disastrous tenure, as Prime Minister, of “Boris” Johnson.

It kept the interest. The casting was remarkably good, headed by a performance by Kenneth Branagh that was amazingly like the real “Boris”, to look at. Other leading characters were also well-portrayed.

I felt that it could have been harder-hitting in some areas. Still, good overall.

People on £150,000 a year are of course not the “super-rich”, but they are still making several times the average, and 10x the amount earned by huge numbers of people in this country.

Only 1% or so of the population earn that much in terms of income.

That Tony Parsons tweet shows the gulf between the msm cosmopolitan talking heads, scribblers, entertainers etc, and the vast bulk of the British people.

In a sense, surprising that Parsons should be so unaware, but “put a beggar on a horse and he rides it to death” [German proverb]. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Parsons_(British_journalist)#Background.

Britain needs a new kind of social-national movement.

The war can be brought to a halt by the West/NATO/NWO simply cutting off supplies of money, arms and ammunition to the forces of the Kiev regime. The fake state and failed state of post-1991 Ukraine will then crumble within weeks if not days.

If escalation continues, there will eventually be a strategic nuclear exchange between NATO/NWO and Russia, after which anything could happen.

It can still be stopped.

On this day a year ago

He pleaded poverty…

Seems that the vindictive Jew-Zionist propagandist, Simon Wiesenthal, owned a watch now valued (partly, no doubt, by reason of his having owned it) at £400,000.

https://www.thejc.com/news/world/watch-owned-by-the-worlds-most-famous-nazi-hunter-expected-to-fetch-over-gbp400k-at-auction-18hZkNNLQko6VEesVk5Z7i.

Ironic. Wiesenthal presented himself as living in modest circumstances in Vienna, reliant on various minor (it seems now maybe not so minor) income streams (including a stipend from the Israeli external intelligence org, MOSSAD).

Indeed, the thriller writer Frederick Forsyth portrayed Wiesenthal as rather down-at-heel in his, Forsyth’s, book, The Odessa File.

Forsyth was, perhaps still is, very pro-Jew and pro-Israel. It must have puzzled him when his Jew financial adviser, one Roger Levitt, cleaned him out sometime in the early 1990s: see https://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/levitt-company-riddled-with-fraud-court-told-that-books-were-rigorously-cooked-to-show-pounds-13m-loss-as-profit-1503774.html. See also https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/news/article-1540071/Oh-no-Look-whos-back-in-business.html

Almost like an “antisemitic trope”…

In fact, Wiesenthal’s lies have often been exposed even by System-friendly scribblers and historians (and even Jewish ones): see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Wiesenthal#Autobiographical_inconsistencies.

I suppose that it is unlikely that Alison Chabloz will be inclined to write a new song about it all, now that she has been imprisoned —again— for lampooning Jewish behaviour. Pity.

The “Wiesenthal watch” is a Patek Philippe, the so-called “Rolls-Royce of watches”. They do keep their value well. I knew of a couple of such watches sold by the writer and diplomat Miguel Serrano [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miguel_Serrano], who was very friendly with a London-based friend of mine.

Serrano wanted to sell a couple of Patek Philippe watches at (if I remember aright) Sotheby’s. I cannot now recall exactly when that was, either late 1980s or early 1990s. I think late 80s.

One of the watches had been given to Serrano by Indira Gandhi [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indira_Gandhi]. Serrano had been Indira Gandhi’s lover (while he was in India as Ambassador, from 1957), though that fact is absent from Wikipedia etc. Serrano himself made no great secret of the liaison, at least to trusted friends, and was apparently invited to Indira Gandhi’s funeral after her assassination.

I cannot recall now how much the watches fetched at auction; many thousands, and perhaps over £20,000. A lot, bearing in mind that this was over 30 years ago.

The watches were left in the keeping of my friend, who showed them to me; she put them up for auction for Serrano, who was still in Chile.

Serrano later came to London, collected the proceeds of sale, and spent £5,000 on a painting by Hitler, one of several also up for auction at that time. I might have been introduced to Serrano, but either I was out of the country, or other matters got in the way. At any rate, I never did meet him.

UK economy

Bank of England’s new doom-laden warning for the economy: Unemployment will rise, inflation will hit TEN PERCENT and post-Covid growth will stagnate – as interest rates rise AGAIN to a 13-year high of 1%.”

[Daily Mail]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10785039/Bank-England-expected-hike-rates-13-year-high-today.html

I am sure that most readers of this blog will not need to be told that the above has not been caused by Putin or his invasion of Ukraine, but by the nearly two years of ridiculous “Covid” restrictions, and the “free money” (supposed) giveaways (“furlough” payments, massive fraud, cash for cronies, “eat out to help out”, business “loans” etc).

The situation is made far worse now by the UK’s (and others’) sanctions regime aimed at Russia.

Britain should have loosely joined with Russia years ago, in return for cost-price gas and the defusing of the arms race.

Still, this might be the time for which social-nationalists have been waiting, if a credible and effective social-national movement emerges. So far, not; just ineffective and almost ludicrous little organizations, without weight, numbers, money, or credibility.
