[German tanks fighting near Kiev, 1943]

On this day a year ago

Thought for the day

Saturday quiz

Well, this week I soundly trounced political journalist John Rentoul, who scored a miserable 3/10. I scored 8/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1 and 8.

Exactly what I have been blogging for months now.

Boris-idiot has latched onto Ukraine as a kind of sub-Falklands Factor, to distract from his hopeless handling of pretty much everything in domestic British politics. The cunning Jew, Zelensky, is playing “Boris” for all he is worth. £500M in military aid, missiles, tanks (all gratis), “refugee” hospitality etc etc.

If Britain (either directly or in effect, via Poland) gives tanks to the Kiev regime, the UK is pretty close to being in a war with Russia which, though at present still a cold war, might well result in a hot war before very long.

Russia, if willing to use all its power, cannot “lose” in Ukraine. For example, were it to use tactical and/or battlefield nuclear weapons. Thus it can be seen that for the UK and USA to funnel arms to the Kiev regime is merely to prolong and intensify the agony of the Ukrainian civilians and their companion animals (which latter is not a “small” matter, as some believe; some apparently small matters are, spiritually, of great importance).

He should be flogged.

When you look at the clowns in charge of both the Government and, in places, NHS, it is unsurprising that nothing works properly.

If Macron wins that semi-rigged election in France, it will be a situation of (to paraphrase the famous Sun headline of 1992), “it was the w*gs wot won it!“…

No less than 17% of the officially-noted population of France are non-white: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/France#Ethnic_groups. Few of those will vote for Marine le Pen. The votes of the supposedly socialist Melenchon (22% in the first round, third-placed; knocked out) are mostly those of non-French (i.e. non-white) voters. Melenchon himself is only French by (partial) upbringing— his parents are Spanish and Spanish/Sicilian, and he lived in Morocco until aged 11.

Most of the Melenchon voters will either vote Macron (to stop Marine le Pen), or will abstain, in this second round. Thus the French people will —probably— be cheated.

Births to ethnic non-French are booming; births to French people declining. This election may be the last chance the French people have to save themselves by ordinary, “lawful” methods, and I fear that, like the Brits, Germans, and others, they will fluff it.

Not that I think hugely highly of Marine le Pen, who even has Jews advising her (and undermining her), but she at least seems to value the heritage of France and of Europe, as compared to Zionist puppet Macron.

Europe may have to be destroyed and remade.

Alison Chabloz

Latest news from the camp of satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, presently imprisoned for, in effect, singing a song about the Charles Dickens character, the Jew Fagin, and also for making a few comments about Zionist Jews on Internet podcasts (the host of one of which podcast has also been imprisoned, though not because of anything Alison said on his show): Alison Chabloz remains at Bronzefield Prison, though it seems that an appeal against both conviction and sentence is in train, as is a renewed application for bail pending appeal.

When or if I receive further news, I shall publish it on the blog. Previous recent blog posts give details of how to send cards, letters, paperback books, and small sums of money to Alison at the prison.

Free speech in the UK

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-10584227/How-career-cancelled-woke-warriors-taken-publishing.html.

Extracts from the Daily Mail article:

Once upon a time, in a halcyon era that now seems like a distant golden age, writing books was a creative endeavour; a job in which you let your imagination take flight.”

Various points of view were allowed to flourish. Stories were peopled by both heroes and villains. The offensive, the reprehensible, even the downright evil, coexisted with the noble and good.”

Fiction was as multi-faceted as the world we live in, and writing was a realm of free expression in which authors had licence to provoke thought, illuminate discussion, even — dare I say it — voice unfashionable opinions without fear of being pilloried and ‘cancelled’.”

Our freedom to think expansively and creatively, even to express our own views, is being undermined as surely as it would be in a totalitarian state. Books are literally being pulped if their authors refuse to toe the line. It is as if the Communist Red Guard has taken over.”

And some of us, myself among them, who have challenged the prevailing orthodoxy on anything from transgender issues to race have been summarily dropped by our publishers.”

My successful career as an author — one of a team writing animal fantasy novels for children between eight and 12 under the name Erin Hunter — was obliterated overnight.”

I now work as an HGV driver, a job I find more congenial — actually more intellectually liberating —because my workmates do not mind what opinions I have and are happy to discuss them with me.

They are also much less misogynistic than I have found the publishing industry to be.”

It is ironic, too, that the cadre of self-appointed censors in the book world, who feel it is their role to defend every minority group from the tiniest slight, is largely white, privileged and middle class.”

[Gillian Philip, in the Daily Mail].

There are two main drivers of this slide into censorship, “cancelling” etc in the UK and elsewhere. The first is the Jew-Zionist, and pro-Israel, lobby, the second is the so-called “woke”, self-describing “antifascist” —but actually anti-European-people— element (“anti-white” if you like), as in the case of the hateful Indian academic at Cambridge University, Priyamvada Gopal.

A few cartoons in point:

A few experiences I myself have had over the past decade, most recently in 2021, targeted by a small cabal of Jew-Zionists calling themselves the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, and who have wormed their way into a degree of influence with UK police, and also professional regulatory bodies: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

My position: that there should be absolute freedom of expression on social, political, historical and other subjects, meaning particularly, freedom from prosecution. The Court of Appeal in the UK has said more than once that there is “a danger” of a “chilling effect” on free speech, yet the slide continues. Indeed, the present government of sinister clowns is about to make most online speech even more constrained (both directly and indirectly); as for the joke “Opposition” headed by Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer, all it says is “me too, but make the penalties even greater!” Starmer is a waste of space.

Meanwhile, the police of the UK, scarcely able to do their proper job, have eagerly embraced the idea that they should be a “poundland KGB”.

As a matter of fact, an editor at a leading Manhattan literary agency wrote to me, when I was in the USA, 30 years ago, that my unpublished book of 1990 was “without doubt the most extraordinary book I have ever read“, but added that “it will never be published in New York” [implied, though unwritten, “by reason of the Jewish influence in American publishing“].

Ukraine

While I hate the harm done to both civilians and their companion animals by the Russian invasion, it is noteworthy that the same newspapers and TV stations so biased and condemnatory about it all often scarcely covered the far worse harm (in statistical terms) done by NATO (NWO) forces to civilians during their campaigns in Iraq, Afghanistan etc. Millions killed. Not only outside Europe, incidentally. Look at the bombing of Belgrade and elsewhere in Serbia, in 1999: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_bombing_of_Yugoslavia.

The Ukraine invasion has become a horrible bloody mess, but Russia now has no choice but to wade through to the end.

There is now a kind of crazy hysteria across Western Europe, North America etc, whipped up by the msm and what might be called “NWO/ZOG”, that it is some kind of sacred duty upon Western Europe etc to supply the Jewish regime in Kiev with advanced weapons, with money, even with fighter planes. People should be asking from where this comes, and what is its real purpose.

When you look at other recent conflicts (Syria, for example) we did not see anything like this, certainly not to the same extent. However, now that the Kiev regime is involved, complete madness has ensued in the West. The real or underlying reason seems to be a desire to undermine Russia strategically.

If NATO supports the use of donated MiG or other fighter planes by the Kiev regime, planes now based in Poland or elsewhere, that does come close to direct involvement in what amounts to a war against Russian forces.

If planes use Polish airfields in attacks on Russian forces in Ukraine or elsewhere, Russia is sure to take that as Polish involvement in the “war”. Forget the small print. The same would be true were such planes to be unable to land in Ukraine after use, and then land in Poland or elsewhere.

This situation is quite likely to lead to a widening of the conflict, which might then engulf the surrounding countries, almost all of which now belong to NATO. If that happens, then a full European war will be quite likely, and that might morph into a US-Russia nuclear exchange.

In terms of blame, yes… Russia invaded Ukraine, but the causation goes back 25 years, and in those 25 years NATO has expanded, and pushed the boundaries in every way. To blame Russia or Putin for everything that is now happening is facile, even if understandable. The public only sees the TV news headlines, and understands little of the subtleties.

If I had a few millions, or more, I should be relocating now to somewhere like New Zealand or South America.

What do Macron, Johnson, Putin, Merkel, and Trudeau all have in common? They all attended WEF’s Youth Leadership program. One should be asking to what extent has Schwab infiltrated our government and all other governments around the world?” [newspaper reader’s comment]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klaus_Schwab; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Economic_Forum.

According to the Transnational Institute (TNI), the Forum is hence planning to replace a recognised democratic model with a model where a self-selected group of “stakeholders” make decisions on behalf of the people.[24] The think tank summarises that we are increasingly entering a world where gatherings such as Davos are “a silent global coup d’état” to capture governance.” [Wikipedia].

What does it take before the mass of people wake up to the NWO/ZOG transnational conspiracy?

This amused me:

While Schwab declared that excessively high management salaries were “no longer socially acceptable”,[19] his own annual salary of about one million Swiss Francs has been repeatedly questioned by the media.” [Wikipedia].

Incidentally, at present time of writing, a million Swiss francs equates to about £800,000 in British money.

“Lawfare”— quasi-terroristic abuse of the legal system

I happened to see this Mail on Sunday piece by Dan Hodges: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10530917/DAN-HODGES-fox-killing-lawyer-bombastic-claims-clogging-courts.html. It examines, polemically, the Good Law Project pressure group, headed by the part-Jew barrister, Jo Maugham, a tax lawyer prolific on Twitter [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolyon_Maugham].

“Lawfare”, meaning the abuse of the legal system (both criminal and civil) to achieve socio-political ends, has been in frequent play in the UK for about a decade. Behind it, mostly the Jew-Zionist, pro-Israel, element.

[Hermitage (formerly, Winter Palace), St. Petersburg, Russia]

On this day a year ago

In that year-ago blog post, I saw a few things that now make me laugh all over again, like the very true assertion, contained in a tweet from one of the huge number of Twitter accounts now closed down by the online censors: “Leftism is when you think the best way to stick it to your boss is to ensure he has an unending supply of cheap imported labor..”

Quite. In a nutshell. That Twitter account was American, but it applies just as well here in the UK. Those (eg the “refugees welcome” dimwits) who think that you can have unlimited or almost unlimited mass immigration, yet still have a high-income, high-skilled economy (and also a properly-funded Welfare State), are just completely wrongheaded.

I myself never use “Right”, Left” terminology in any sense which confers legitimacy upon it.

The only extra point to add (and only necessary because there is so much deliberate misinformation around, especially on Twitter) is that many of the migrant-invaders entering the UK will never enter the UK workforce as such, because they not only have no usable skills, meaning skills useful in an advanced economy, but also either speak no English at all, or only at the most basic level (and in many cases never will).

In other words, mass immigration creates a huge drag on the society and economy; you could even call it a millstone around our collective neck.

Of course, the self-describing “Left” have pretty much given up any struggle to create a better society. They have no ideology (beyond vague “anti-racism”, “anti-sexism” etc) which might underpin such a struggle. Socialism in the old sense more or less died in and after 1989, the last significant year of the 1956-1989 ~33-year cycle. What is left is effectively worthless, a farrago of mixed-up nonsense, not only ideologically vague, but practically confused.

The above example about mass immigration is just one example of the confusion. Another is about free speech online. The virtue-signallers of the self-describing “Left” almost all celebrate the removal of social-national Twitter accounts such as mine (rubbed out in 2018 after a conspiracy by a pack of Zionist Jews); the same virtue-signallers celebrate equally the removal of Twitter accounts belonging to so-called “alt-Right” figures such as Katie Hopkins, and those of dissidents such as David Icke.

The “online fora” (Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, ebay etc) are of course all run and actually owned by hugely wealthy companies (and individuals, mostly Jews), but the self-describing “Left” has nothing to say about all that, still less any plan to change the structure; for them, all that matters is that “fascists” (those with whom they disagree) are removed from having any online “platform” (where they might enjoy freedom of expression).

They just do not see that what has happened is that they, and those like them, are now contained in a big gilded cage, where they can squawk endlessly about “racism”, “sexism” etc while having not the slightest real impact on the world.

The same kind of dissonance as over immigration is seen in the attitude of the same people about Palestine, Israel, and the Jewish situation in the world. They (most of them) oppose Israel as a state, and go halfway toward such ideas as “BDS” (economic boycotts of Israel, and avoidance of Israeli products etc), but the majority of them are still brainwashed by the whole “holocaust” farrago, and almost all of them no doubt think that the disastrous and destructive war against the German Reich was A Very Good Thing. Few would see a problem in the fact that exploitative Jewish control of economies, legal systems, political systems permeates what might be called “the Western world”, our world.

Even when they see fraudulent Jewish exploiters such as Philip Green, Robert Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein and others, those self-describing “Left” people see only finance-capitalists…

As Goethe put it in Faust, and from the mouth of Mephistopheles, “the good folk do not see the Devil, even when he sits on their shoulder.” The “Leftists” see only the part of the narrative that fits in with their pre-1989 ideology.

You saw all of the above in the UK Labour Party’s Corbyn and McDonnell double-act: Corbyn with his skeletal “ideology” composed of elements taken, half-baked, from 20thC history, such as the so-called “Battle of Cable Street”, selected and half-understood bits from the Spanish Civil War (“!No Pasaran” etc), anti-Israel support for Palestine, yet at the same time his lip-service to the “holocaust” farrago, and of course “anti-fascism”. As clunky as a Trabant.

Both “sides” of the Labour Party offer nothing to the British people (though neither does this shambolic “Conservative” government, of course).

Unusual travelogue

That YouTube account, though slightly irritating at times, is usually quite interesting. The subtitles are rubbish, but you don’t need to know Russian: mostly English commentary.

As for BAM (Baikal-Amur-Mainline), it was once said, by dissidents, that every Soviet generation had its large and, they claimed, not very useful, engineering project: inter alia, the White Sea Canal, the Turk-Sib railway, the Virgin Lands scheme, and BAM. True, but some of those are at least not useless, and some are also very impressive.

“Thought for the day”

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools
:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

[Kipling, If]

Both major System parties are basically, and putting it politely, two faces of the same coin.

Only social nationalism has even a chance of saving anything worthwhile in Britain, but there is no social-national party worthy of the name, let alone any social-national movement.

A few more thoughts about Ukraine

Any Russian incursion into Eastern Ukraine would have been bloodless, but will now not be, partly because the corrupt Kiev regime will probably try to resist, despite the vast bulk of the Eastern Ukraine population favouring Russia.

The arms and money (and “advisers”) from the UK and —mainly— USA being sent to Ukraine contain the seeds of a wider conflict, because any large-scale resistance by the Kiev government will probably result in retaliation against it by Russian forces. That might include massive attack on Kiev itself. Whether that will result in American direct involvement remains to be seen, though I doubt that the USA has the will to fight Russia directly, on the ground.

Eastern Ukraine was part of the Russo-Slavonic polity for over a thousand years. It was under Muscovite control for hundreds of years. The present corrupt, and basically Jew-dominated, Ukraine, has only been around for 29-30 years as a (failed) state. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Ukraine.

Without interference from outside, Eastern Ukraine would fall under Russian control as willingly as Austria joined with the German Reich in 1938.

As for the USA, does it have the will to put its own safety on the line for the Kiev regime? I doubt it. Biden’s recent statement was a nod and wink to Russia that this will not cause a superpower conflict (if Russia still counts as a superpower…perhaps not, but near enough!).

Yes, the USA probably does have many times the military-destructive power of Russia, but the fact is that Russia could still annihilate most if not all American cities if it so chose, albeit at a like cost. You can only wipe out a city once, no matter how many and how powerful are your nuclear weapons.

As for political leadership, Biden seems to have some form of dementia. If he had to resign, the government of the USA would be, at least nominally, in the hands of part-black, part-Indian, part (small part) Irish, Kamala Harris, but one can assume that the “deep state”, i.e. the secret cabals and ruling circles, would continue to pull the strings. NWO, if you like, and “ZOG”.

Russia looks like it is about to make a big move on the geopolitical chessboard.

Suddenly, “Covid” “restrictions” are going to be stood down, only weeks after the latest scam propaganda over “Omicron”, and how hundreds of thousands would be filling NHS hospitals. All lies.

However, the repressive laws will mostly still be there, ready to be used and indeed repurposed, any time that the “secret state” decides.

Looking at those statements, it is clear why virtually all the Soviet spies in the USA in the 1930s and 1940s were Jews. Look at the atom bomb spies.

Welcome to the end of democracy

https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/welcome-to-the-end-of-democracy

Well worth reading. Which is why I am reposting long extracts here:

A rising tide of money and administrative power defines the rising autocracy.

As executive compensation reached the stratosphere in Big Tech and finance, small businesses face what the Harvard Business Review calls ‘an existential threat.’ Experts now warn that one third of small businesses, which comprise the majority of US companies and employ nearly half of all workers, could ultimately shut down for good. Hundreds of thousands have already disappeared, including nearly half of all black-owned businesses. Particularly damaged have been the small merchants along Main Street and those working for them, such as restaurant and hospitality workers.

Climate-change policies could nurture the new autocracy for a generation. As tech oligarchs and the financial establishment implement the Davos notion of a Great Reset, they will force a quick end to fossil fuels. There are huge opportunities for massive investment by super-rich companies and speculators in the ‘green economy,’ all made possible with tax breaks, loans and guaranteed sales to governmental units.

This promises to create a new crop of mega-billionaires like Elon Musk, today the world’s richest man. In the era of super-subsidies, a wannabe electric-vehicle maker like Rivian, which has negligible sales and consistent losses, can be valued higher than General Motors, which sells almost seven million cars and has $122 billion (£90 billion) in revenues each year. In Green Capitalism, the British Marxist James Heartfield labels this ‘austerity socialism’: reaping governmental edicts as opposed to actually producing real goods. Nice work if you can get it.

For the middle and working classes, however, the Great Reset may prove somewhat less promising — if not disastrous. For most people, notes Eric Heymann, a senior economist at Deutsche Bank Research, the rapid ‘green’ transition will mean ‘a noticeable loss of welfare and jobs.’ The conscious policy of degrowth as a means of forcibly reducing greenhouse gas emissions will require getting most people out of their cars, and forcing them to travel far less and to live in tiny apartments. Enforcement will be necessarily intrusive as well. Planners in the UK and elsewhere are pushing for family ‘carbon budgets.’ Add surveillance technology and we end up with something akin to China’s ‘social credit’ system, in which your right to free movement is subject to government approval.

The young are particularly threatened by these changes — younger people already face much harder prospects than any postwar generation. Few expect things to improve: across the higher-income countries, roughly two-thirds of people surveyed by Pew Research see a poorer future for the next generation. According to researchers at the Equality of Opportunity Project, about 90 per cent of those born in 1940 grew up to earn higher incomes than their parents. The same is true for only 50 per cent of those born in the 1980s. A recent study by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis warns that millennials are in danger of becoming a ‘lost generation’ in terms of wealth accumulation. To make matters worse, over half of all young people, in a survey of ten countries, think the world is doomed by climate change.

As housing and other costs skyrocket, class lines are hardening. Inheritance as a share of GDP in France has grown roughly threefold since 1950, with some upper-income French millennials inheriting more money than many workers make in a lifetime. The growing importance of inherited assets is even more pronounced in Germany, Britain and the United States. In the US, a country with a national mythology that looks askance at inherited wealth, the children of property-owning parents are far better situated to own a house eventually (often with parental help) and enter what is now known as ‘the funnel of privilege.’ In America, millennials are three times as likely as boomers to count on inheritance for their retirement. Among the youngest cohort, aged eighteen to twenty-two, over 60 per cent expect that inheritance will be their primary source of income as they age.

How will the downwardly mobile react to the prospect of permanent rental serfdom and, ultimately, total dependence on the state? A recent Edelman survey reveals that increasing numbers no longer trust institutions or believe hard work pays off. In a world dominated by a few institutions, today’s precariat of gig and short-contract workers, and those who have dropped out of the workforce entirely, could become an economically less useful version of Marx’s proletariat: a permanent underclass requiring aggressive, quasi-military policing.

Meanwhile, large tech firms and financial giants — even those sceptical about climate change zealotry — see the prospect of record profits and valuations in ‘disruption.’ The pandemic accelerated the white-collar shift to remote work, and the broader demand for automated solutions skyrocketed. A future less reliant on human labor elevates the tech oligarchs to the highest perch on what Lenin called ‘the commanding heights’ of the economy.

In a digitalised economy, it’s good to control the critical niches. The oligarchs do this brilliantly. They have seized dominant shares of key markets from search (Google) to social media (Facebook) to book sales (Amazon). Google and Apple together provide over 95 per cent of operating software for mobile devices, while Microsoft still accounts for over 80 per cent of the software that runs personal computers around the world.

We are increasingly ruled by a perfect marriage of class convenience, with more power for the clerisy and ever-greater economic opportunities for the oligarchy — all with the added benefit of encouraging them to feel good about themselves. Even as they push austerity on the masses, they live like medieval lords, indulging in lavish weddings and building estates reminiscent of the Habsburgs’. Jeff Bezos just spent $100 million (£80 million) on a Hawaiian retreat. Bill Gates’s daughter just enjoyed a $2 million (£1.5 million) wedding. John Kerry, president Biden’s chief climate scold and beneficiary of an heiress’s fortune, travels on a private jet that use thirty times the energy of the average American vehicle.

The tech oligarchs are creating something similar to what Aldous Huxley called in Brave New World Revisited a ‘scientific caste system.’ There is ‘no good reason,’ Huxley wrote in 1958, that ‘a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown.’ It will condition its subjects from the womb so that they ‘grow up to love their servitude’ and ‘never dream of revolution.’ It will maintain a strict social order and provide enough diversion through drugs, sex and videos to keep their artificially narrowed minds occupied and sated.

[Joel Kotkin, in The Spectator]

Sobering analysis.

Still, it may be that the “perfect system” the Western ruling circles and cabals strive towards will be smashed, either by natural events or by war. Not a nice prospect but something of the sort may be, also, the only way for Western society to escape from socio-political sclerosis.

The “Left”/”Right” terminology is useless. Let’s be specific: much of the censorship and “cancelling” comes from the Jew-Zionist element; the rest from the “woke”, multikulti, fake “diversity” side, but in fact much of that has been fostered by Jews as well, at least in its origins. Those two “sides” may clash on some issues (mostly Israel/Palestine) but are both drivers of intellectual repression.

Outside academia too. I have been attacked without pause by the Jew-Zionist element, and for many years, not least since this blog started just over five years ago.

Regular readers of the blog will know that I was recently blogging about all of this (in general, not this latest news), concluding that the Conservative Party probably can recover its position if it bins Johnson fairly soon. Initially, I thought that idiot would go before summer this year, but corrected myself to say spring 2022. Now? Seems that it could be any moment.

There is no constitutional imperative for a General Election to be held before late 2024 and, at the end of the day, Labour is offering nothing to the British people either, so once The Idiot is binned, the Cons may be able to recover at least to near-parity with Lab.

I saw an interesting analysis, to the effect that, even if there were a general election right now, Labour might still have a majority of a handful of seats, or even no majority.

In the end, though, both Lab and Con are two faces of the (((System))), and are under the same concealed flag.

Covid death “within 28 days of test”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10269921/TOM-UTLEY-mother-laws-death-99-included-daily-Covid-toll.html

Almost exactly the same story as that of my late mother-in-law: admitted to hospital at age 98 or 99, in 2020, with a fracture of the foot; negative for “Covid” at first, but while in hospital, after about 2 weeks, tested positive (i.e. was infected with the virus in one of the NHS’s shambolic and unclean hospitals). No symptoms either before or after the test. Discharged after another week or two, still without symptoms. Died of other causes several months later.

Had she died within 28 days of the last test, my late mother-in-law would have become yet another “Covid” statistic, another faked victim not of “Covid” but of System lies.

We are now seeing untold billions wasted on supposed “vaccines” and “boosters” re. the latest “variant” which so far has killed, in the UK, precisely no-one. Madness. Planned madness…

Meanwhile, the NHS is, at best, a skeleton service, having become a facade “national Covid service”.

I myself had occasion yesterday, though not on my own account, to visit the local medical centre, about a mile or two away.

In normal times, the centre, a pleasant two-storey building with creeper and flowers growing on the outside, is fairly busy. There are about 8 GPs. Now, GPs are apparently rarely seen by patients, and nurses dealing with ongoing routine conditions are seen strictly by appointment made by letter (in this case, 2 months before).

The medical centre reception area was deserted except for a masked receptionist. There was not one patient waiting in the large waiting area. I was there for about 35 minutes, in which time only one patient arrived, and then another just as I left.

That waiting area had been denuded of some of the furniture formerly there, and most of the pleasant large potted plants as well. Rather sad.

Very strange.

Free speech

The Daily Mail carried the following story:

…and neither have any BBC talking heads, or the Daily Mail, or Laurence Fox, or Toby Young, or the “Free Speech Union”, made any comment on my (by now) widely-read account of when —effectively— the same pack of Jews made a malicious and false complaint to tame Essex police about me: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/. One of a number of such complaints made about me over the past decade by essentially the same pack, incidentally.

If Michael Buerk is worried about the ending of free speech in the UK, he is at least 25 years out of date, and arguably 50.

Needless to say, neither the Daily Mail nor Michael Buerk (nor the rest) identify the main driver of the repression of free speech in the UK— the embedded Jew-Zionist element.

Diary Blog, 12 November 2021, including thoughts about “stay behind” units in the South of England of 1940

[Churchill, toting an “iconic” Thompson submachinegun with 50-round drum magazine while visiting coastal defences at Hartlepool in 1940]

“Stay behind” units in 1940: an historical note

The Second World War, with its complexities, nuances, twists and turns, and ideological subtleties, is endlessly fascinating. I happened to see a local newspaper story about part of Churchill’s idea of how to “fight on the beaches, fight on the landing-grounds” etc.

Churchill, though a genuinely world-historical figure, unlike Boris Johnson (who tries to ape his style and manner), does have a few characteristics in common with his latter-day copier. One is that he was largely ineffective as head of government when given his head; also, he was a person with, often, very silly ideas. Churchill was no good as a strategist; as for tactics, his ideas were really straight out of boys’ comic books.

The Norway operation in 1940; the British Expeditionary Force in France, also in 1940 (my own grandfather was on the Dunkirk beaches), the idea of invading France via the Cote-d’Azur in 1944, the Fall of France, the Fall of Greece (including Crete), and so on, give some idea of Churchill’s lack of strategic nous.

Now, more information has come to light about the “stay behind” units secretly organized in case of German invasion in 1940: https://www.dorset.live/news/history/nazi-invasion-dorset-auxillary-units-5621886.

Stay-behind units were organized, with the idea that they might not last more than 12 days after any German “reverse D-Day”.

It was presumed that German invasion forces would strike initially at the London area:

Operation Sealion, Hitler’s plan to invade across the Channel, almost saw the German 6th Army land at Lyme Regis in 1940 and push inland to Bristol and Gloucester.

Meanwhile the 9th and 16th Armies were to attack from Portsmouth to Dover, sweeping northwards to capture London and East Anglia, Britain’s breadbasket.” [DorsetLive].

Despite the chilling ruthlessness of their remit, the “Auxiliary Units” had a delightfully Wodehousian aspect:

“Grouped into “operational patrols” of four to eight men, AU members needed excellent local knowledge – making gamekeepers and poachers ideal candidates.

But known members of local patrols include bakers, carpenters, car salesmen, dairy farmers, electricians, fishmongers, miners and train drivers.

The staff of Charborough Park – a country house estate now belonging to South Dorset MP Richard Drax – were also formed into an AU patrol.

The chauffeurs, foresters, gamekeeper and gardener of Sir Reginald Aylmer Ranfurly Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, Mr Drax’s grandfather, moonlighted as would-be saboteurs and assassins.” [DorsetLive].

One almost expects Sir Roderick Spode (a parody of Sir Oswald Mosley) to make an appearance, with a slight ideological twist, perhaps. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roderick_Spode.

There were, it seems, about 6,500 volunteers in such “stay behind” units, most of whom were organized around the southern and eastern coasts of England.

Had “Operation Sealion” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Sea_Lion] ever been launched into action, the defending forces, including the 6,500 Auxiliary Unit fighters, would have faced an onslaught by 600,000 German troops (100,000 on the first day), backed by 650 tanks and 4,500 horses: https://www.theargus.co.uk/news/17353462.nazi-d-day-made-south-coast-target/. The Auxiliary Units would have been mosquitos biting elephants.

As for the conventional forces defending, “The Germans put the British defences at 320,000 men, with machine gun nests positioned 300 yards from the coastline, artillery guns 1,000 yards inland and another line of artillery and machine gun nests 3,000 yards back.

A line of more than 600 armoured cars and tanks were said to have been positioned two miles inland and a reserve of 50,000 men a further two miles back.” [The Argus].

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Sea_Lion_order_of_battle.

In fact, Operation Sealion was not a ready to roll plan such as had been Fall Gelb, “Case Yellow” (or “Operation Yellow”), the plan for the invasion of France [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manstein_Plan]. Sealion was called Unternehmen Seelöwe, not “Fall Seelöwe“.

My German is poorer than it should be (bearing in mind that I did take German at school, and I did also have a couple of crash courses later, when I was in my twenties), but the difference in designation seems to be that one plan was ready-to-go, while the other was somewhere between that and a contingency plan.

It is known that Hitler wanted Britain, and the British Empire, as an ally against the expansionism of both the Soviet Union and the U.S.A. His preference in 1940 was for an armistice, not for conquest by invasion.

Apart from Hitler’s preference for alliance, there were operational reasons why Sealion never proceeded: lack of total air superiority was one, but another perhaps more important was the lack of carrying capacity by sea of the German navy. There were not enough barges to carry the armies required, and not enough defence for those barges.

If, however, the invasion had happened, “[the Auxiliary Units]…would disappear to their OB, wait for the Germans to go over the top of them and attack the rear...”

Patrols would attack bridges, convoys, fuel dumps and so on, breaking the supply chain and holding up the advance of the blitzkrieg, giving the regular army time to regroup and counterattack.

Equipped with suppressed sniper’s rifles, the fighters would also be expected to assassinate anyone who might expose their underground operations.

Patrols would take out collaborators as well as local policemen and intelligence officers – innocent men, killed just for knowing their identities…

Anyone who stumbled across their OB would also be killed. And if a patrol member was injured and couldn’t get back the OB, they were obligated to shoot him...”

Their life expectancy was just 12 short days – with orders to kill each other and themselves if capture by the enemy seemed imminent.” [DorsetLive]

There were, then, two underlying assumptions or, better said, hopes, on the part of the Auxiliary Units: the first was that the units would survive for 12-14 days; the second was that the main British forces would be able to mount a successful counterattack.

As to whether the stay-behind fighters could survive for 14 days, my assessment is that they could do so easily if they did nothing or very little; once they started to shoot people and blow things up, it would be a different story.

The Germans might not have been able to do much to repress any stay-behind activity in the first confused days following invasion, but once those early days had passed, the Feldgendarmerie and SS would rather rapidly have started to arrest or kill suspects.

It is remarkable that the British plans included the assassination, on a default basis, of British police and Army personnel, or local residents, who knew of their existence! That might soon have backfired, with other such people helping the Germans to eliminate such ruthless persons hiding in their neighbourhoods. We shall never know. What we can be fairly sure about is that the Auxiliary Units would have had little impact on the eventual result, in big-picture terms.

As for the Auxiliary Units as the basis for a possible “British Resistance, impossible. Limited stocks of weaponry and ammunition, no help from external sources, and the German security grip tightening steadily.

Could British home forces have defeated a German invasion force, had it landed in the numbers suggested? Doubtful. For one thing, the projected German force was to have been 600,000 after a few days; the defending forces would have numbered under 400,000.

Secondly, the quality of German tanks, light weapons etc outmatched the British; the same was true of the fitness of German troops. Red Cross reports of the period (from France) noted that British soldiers captured were often undernourished, stunted, with poor teeth and poor fitness, a result of the social conditions prevalent in the UK in the 1920s and 1930s. The German prisoners taken by the British were found to be, almost universally, in a good state of health and fitness, the result of, mainly, 7 years of National Socialist government.

Another point is that the German forces will mostly have seen action in Poland or France, whereas the British home forces were mostly without recent battle experience.

It is true that large wargames (a major one took place at Sandhurst in 1974) have generally resulted in German defeat following a 1940 invasion of Britain, but those results were based on destruction of much of the invasion force at sea, and failure to execute the invasion plan with sufficient boldness. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Sea_Lion_(wargame).

History is full of examples of invasions that should have failed, but did not. Alexander’s invasion of the Persian Empire, and William of Normandy’s 1066 invasion of England, are but two. Indeed, Hitler’s own experiences in 1939-41 (Norway, France, Poland, the Soviet Union, Greece, Yugoslavia etc show that boldness can bring victory even in unlikely circumstances. Rommel’s victories in North Africa were usually achieved against the odds.

It can certainly be argued that Hitler should have pressed on in 1940, even in circumstances of high risk. Britain would have quickly folded, and then, under new political leadership, found a new role, with the Empire, as a “dual-rulership” of much of the Earth, in collaboration with the German Reich.

On those premises, huge destruction and misery would have been avoided, both in the 1940s and thereafter. The world would have been a far better place now, had that happened.

As to the results further down the line, had a German invasion succeeded, one has to say that, in some ways, perhaps most ways, Britain itself might have been —80 years on— better for it. There would have been no migration-invasion by blacks and browns, and no Jewish-Zionist exploitation. Services such as the NHS would have been available earlier and better.

Incidentally, a German victory in 1940 would not have meant long-term German occupation, certainly not after a few years, and not necessarily a harsh one. The main aim, for Hitler, would have been disarmament or control of the British Army, navy and air force.

Hitler’s preferred ruler of Britain, we now know, was none other than Lloyd George! The Security Service, MI5, was well aware of this, and monitored him closely.

Lloyd George was consistently pro-German after 1923,[169] in part due to his growing conviction that Germany had been treated unfairly at Versailles. He supported German demands for territorial concessions and recognition of its “great power” status; he paid much less attention to the security concerns of France, Poland, Czechoslovakia and Belgium.

[170] In a speech in 1933, he warned that if Adolf Hitler were overthrown Communism would replace him in Germany.[171] In August 1934, he insisted Germany could not wage war, and assured European nations that there would be no risk of war during the next ten years.[172] 

In September 1936, he visited Germany to talk with Hitler. Hitler said he was pleased to have met “the man who won the war”; Lloyd George was moved, and called Hitler “the greatest living German”.[166]: 247  Lloyd George also visited Germany’s public works programmes and was impressed. On his return to Britain, he wrote an article for the Daily Express praising Hitler and stating: “The Germans have definitely made up their minds never to quarrel with us again.[166]: 248 

He believed Hitler was “the George Washington of Germany”; that he was rearming Germany for defence and not for offensive war; that a war between Germany and the Soviet Union would not happen for at least ten years; that Hitler admired the British and wanted their friendship but that there was no British leadership to exploit this.” [Wikipedia].

Well, in the trite but true expression, “man proposes but God disposes”…

Strange. My memory tells me precisely the reverse, as far as the years up to 2010 are concerned. It is a complex picture, but I recall a country where things were OK (speaking very very generally) until 1997 (I was mostly out of the UK that exact year, though), one where a gradual “communitarian” police statism started to develop under Blair and Brown, and one in which (and here I do agree with the tweeter) there was a catastrophic decline in standards from…well, the tweeter says 2010 (i.e. when Cameron-Levita and his clique became the Government), but I think earlier, maybe from 2005 or so (under Gordon Brown).

I recall returning to the UK from France in 2009, having not been here for a year (I had been spending half my time in France since 2005, and was also in a number of other countries during 2005-2010), and noticing the social darkness that had already descended, a year before David Cameron-Levita became Prime Minister.

The (Pakistani?) tweeter is obviously a simplistic Labour Party partisan, who thinks in unsophisticated ways: Labour government 1997— good, Conservative government 2010— bad. If only life were that simple.

In 2004-2005, for nearly two years, I lived in a farmhouse in the constituency, near Milton Abbot (6 miles NW of Tavistock), having moved out of Polapit Tamar House, 8 miles away across the Tamar in Cornwall (a lovely place then, though since I lived there, split up into numerous dwelling units, and currently on sale for £7M).

Geoffrey Cox became MP for Torridge and West Devon in 2005, but at that time I was too busy trying to make a living at the Bar to take any notice of System politics, certainly did not vote, and was unaware, I think, even of the bastard’s name.

The constituency is hard-core Conservative Party territory, though. All the farmers and landowners vote Conservative (despite being a “subsidized industry” by any other name).

The fallibility of human memory

We do not have to consider the almost-ubiquitous “holocaust” fakery, hoaxes, or “memories” which simply could not have happened, to understand that human memory often cannot be relied upon. Ignorance of fact can also play a role.

I have just seen a tweet in which the tweeter reminisces about his school trip to the Soviet Union in 1984 or 1985. The trip apparently consisted of a week in Leningrad and a week in Moscow.

Inter alia, the tweeter concerned tweets that he visited the Hermitage (in Leningrad), and walked on the surface of the frozen Volga…

Well, I suppose that the above memory could be accurate, but probably is not. Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) is on the river Neva (pron. Neeva); Moscow is on the Moscow river or Moskva.

The Volga has a quite convoluted course, and at its nearest to Moscow is only about 85 miles away, at the meeting-place of the Volga with the Moskva-Volga Canal (aka Moscow Canal): https://factsanddetails.com/russia/Places/sub9_9a/entry-7029.html. It goes nowhere very near St. Petersburg.

The Moscow river is a tributary of the river Oka, which is in turn a tributary of the river Volga.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neva; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moskva_(river); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moscow_Canal; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volga; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oka_(river).

The upshot of the above is that the tweet I saw could be accurate but quite likely is not. The tweeter probably walked on the frozen Neva, or perhaps the Moskva, or the Moskva-Volga Canal.

Memory cannot always be relied upon. My own memory is (I have found) better than that of almost anyone else I have ever met, but is still occasionally inaccurate.

Talking of memories of Russia, I saw another tweet today, which contained a picture of the interior of the GUM complex near Red Square. Marble floors, clean, redolent of luxury.

I first saw GUM in 1993, when most of the shop units were empty, the (then white) marble floors containing wide cracks in places, and a snack bar in the area on the ground floor was doing a good trade in open sandwiches (red caviar on buttered white bread); I had one myself, I think.

When I returned to Moscow in 2007, all changed. Tan marble, everything clean and tidy, and the shops were all occupied; they included Thomas Pink, Armani etc. Not very busy, perhaps because it was a weekday and early evening, or perhaps because of the high prices. In 1993, it was also not busy, though then because there was rather little to buy. I believe that, in Soviet days, GUM was always packed, as was the toy shop Detsky Mir (“Children’s World”) next door (with access then from GUM as well as from the street). In 1993, I wandered in from GUM, out of curiosity. The few outsized soft toys were charged at extortionate prices. Oddly, or perhaps not, no children and few adults there.

See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; and see also https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.

The author of the cited piece says that many dissidents are forced to “keep quiet” in order to avoid being “cancelled”. He does not explore the possibility that some dissidents, “cancelled”, censored, unable to express views, or put forward ideas, might decide to strike back at their imprisoners, or tormentors, or at the self-appointed “leaders” and “influencers” of the very sick society that is developing fast in the UK, USA etc. Action directe?

On the wider point, the people generally, “the plebs” if you like, do not want “authoritarianism” as such; they want “authority”, in the sense of statesmen in charge of government, rather than clowns like “Boris” and his cronies. People who know what they want for the country, and know how to get things done. Look at the part-Jew/Levantine chancer! He can do nothing except to spin fantasy islands, fantasy bridges, fantasy airports etc. Incapable of being a Prime Minister. Totally unfit for his, or any, office. Not that Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer is any better. He is equally useless, simply less colourful.

The people also want TV news that reports facts, rather than the present BBC/Sky propaganda mouthpieces.

The people also want decent and working administration, both at central and local government level.

The people want a proper NHS, a National Health Service, not a “National Covid Service” run for the benefit of those who work in it.

The people also want to be a functioning nation-state, with a basically white European population, not a multikulti, dystopian chaotic mess, kept like that for the profit and benefit of “a certain tribe”.

The above is in fact only part of the entire problem.

A declaration of war on freedom of expression in the UK

Seems that the System’s MPs never learn…

Late tweets

The new Australian biosecurity (and finance-capitalist, and multikulti) police state.
