For once, I did not beat political journalist John Rentoul, who scored 5/10, whereas I could only get 2/10 right this week. I knew the answers to questions 1 and 9 only. I could not quite recall the answers to questions 2 and 6, and I should have known the answer to question 5, but was thinking in terms of the lower houses of parliaments only, so missed that one as well. Other than that, no excuses…
While it is traditional for students to be impecunious, this is just ridiculous.
The “Orange Revolution” of 2005, and the 2014 re-run, were just Jew-Zionist and CIA operations (NWO/ZOG, if you like). The “popular” facade was a pantomime, just like the one that removed Ceausescu in Romania in 1989 (notwithstanding that he well deserved it), a “revolution” so badly choreographed that crowds turned out in Bucharest just to watch the play.
Stray thoughts about Rishi Sunak
A couple of years ago, as he threw, with abandon, golden sesterces to the plebs, Rishi Sunak was the conquering hero of the hour for the UK msm. The consequences of shutting down much of the economy for 1-2 years seemed to be a mystery to him and to the “experts” (medical, economic and whatever).
“Furlough” payments (a salary paid to people in order that they would be able to sit in their houses eating pizza, and drinking too much, for months and months…), “loans” and free payments to businesses (many fraudulent), huge amounts paid out for useless and pointless NHS “PPE” stuff, £38 BILLION paid out for a useless “test and trace” operation (useless in practice and useless even had it worked perfectly) run by equally-useless Dido Harding, a Conservative Party crony who had already failed in her previous jobs. And so on…
Well, back in 2020, Sunak was lauded as the almost “inevitable” “next Prime Minister”, just as useless “Boris” had been promoted by msm idiots for 20 years before he actually became Prime Minister.
Sunak’s star, of course, faded as it began to be obvious even to the pathetic UK msm, and to members of his own party, that the Indian “clever boy” might have been thought wonderful at Winchester, Oxford, and in the unreal world of vulture finance-capitalism, but was not so great in the real world.
Even so, it must have come as a shock to Sunak to discover that the rank and file members of his own party actually preferred ignorant and stupid Liz Truss to him, and he must realize that at least part of that was because he is Indian rather than English.
Will Sunak now give up politics, or will he wait to see how badly Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng can trash the economy and society (further), in the hope that he will be invited to return, like a shopworn and “ethnic” de Gaulle?
I doubt that Sunak will bother to stay as an MP after the end of this Parliament. If he does, it will be on the backbenches, and because the convenience of being an MP may suit him.
I agree, for once, with Janet Street-Porter. The whole thing has been overdone. Instead of a quiet, dignified series of events, a mass circus in which good taste and real respect has been —partly at least— left behind.

At last the Russian high command is starting to think truly tactically, meaning in this case obliquely.
It will be recalled that the Iraqi Army flooded large areas at one time, in the 1980s and later, both when fighting Iran and when fighting the “Allied forces” (USA, mainly).
I made that point a few days ago on the blog, citing the dictum of Clausewitz about how the ratio “moral” or morale vis a vis the “material” is 3:1.
We tend to forget that, though the southeastern part of Ukraine is a war zone, that does not mean that all areas suffer continuous fighting. Far from it. The Ukraine is about 3x the size of the UK, and nearly 5x the size of England. The southeastern parts known as the Donbass or Don Basin (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) are, together, about half the size of England.
“...a new recession, heralded by galloping inflation – the real thief in the night for working-class people, has caught the government off guard, with a new PM who has everything to prove, having been elected by a small number of Conservative members.”

“The risk is always that the UK ends up not as Global Britain but Little England. This, too, would have been a nightmare for the Queen.”

Pound sliding, inflation stoking, and recession likely
Still think that closing down the economy for almost 2 years (because a virus was supposedly killing one out of every thousand people, mostly aged and/or with serious pre-existing health problems), and while doling out “free” money to individuals and companies via “furlough” payments, grants, “loans” etc, was a good policy? Think again.
A delusionary time, but what happens once the funeral of the late Queen has been held?
The death of the late Queen, and the consequent ritual arrangements and spectacles, is occupying the msm in the UK to an almost (?) unprecedented extent.
It may be that the Diana death hysteria of 1997, about which I have heard, and the Silver Jubilee of 1977, were similar; I cannot say, having been out of the UK when those two events occurred. In 1977, I was in Rhodesia, and in 1997 I was in Kazakhstan.
In fact, I only heard of the Diana incident 2-3 days after it happened, when I attended a regular Monday morning meeting at my office in Almaty, the then capital.
The British Embassy opened a book of condolence, and I was told by one of my Embassy contacts that, out of all the ~70 British residents (in the city) of which the Embassy was aware, I was the only one who had not signed (though not because I was hostile to Diana, but because of simple lack of interest).
My non-signing may have also been noted because, about 10 months previously, I had attended by invitation a royal reception at the Ambassador’s official Residence, where I had met and briefly chatted to Prince Charles, as he then was. Also, because I was at the Embassy quite often, at least a couple of times per week.
I have blogged in the past about how, on my return to London a few weeks later, friends told me about the collective psychosis (?) that had descended (on London at least), with pubs full of blubbing drinkers etc.
I am now thinking ahead to the day, or perhaps two or three days after the funeral of the late Queen (next Monday, 19 September 2022). What then?
We as a nation (insofar as Britain still is a nation) face huge economic problems, as well as ingrained social problems. The cloud of illusion all too obvious this week on TV, in the Press etc will blow away, and the country may come down to Earth with a very hard jolt.
The sentiment around the enormous queues going to see the late Queen’s coffin etc is somewhat illusory. The hundreds of thousands of people shuffling toward Westminster, or lining the Mall, are still only about 1% of the whole UK population. The vast majority, almost all in fact, seem to be English/British, i.e. white, and most (that I have seen in photos, on TV etc), are middle-aged or elderly.
This will all look very different in six months’ time.

I know, personally, of two people, in two separate countries, who have each had at least one (I think two or three) “Covid” “vaccine” shots. Both are now facing heart surgery, neither having previously suffered from cardiac problems. One triple bypass, one quadruple bypass. I myself have not been injected with the “vaccine(s)” and have not been unwell with “Covid” or anything else. Not yet anyway. I shall not be allowing anyone to inject me with these “vaccines”.
It is “almost” an insult to see these monkeys on sticks pretend to vie for the position of leader of the (misnamed) Conservative Party, and so Prime Minister of this country.
One non-European, with billions of pounds in wealth, a former Goldman Sachs vulture banker; the other, a dishonest woman without a shred of principle, and who only became an MP in the first place on her back.
Soon, fewer than 200,000 Conservative Party members (about 1 in every 200 citizens, i.e. persons of voting age) will decide which of those empty vessels will become, automatically, Prime Minister. It is sick. It is also stupid. As are the candidates.
Which one will win that contest? Probably the Truss woman, because the Conservative Party members are quite likely to prefer someone who is at least English, and someone who is not a billionaire and part of an Indian billionaire dynasty.
I get the impression that the great British public, many of them, loved being paid to stay home, loved free money (as they thought and were encouraged to think), and now are puzzled by the spike in inflation (which might reach 12% soon), and by the consequent fall in living standards as pay and benefits fail to keep pace, and as the value in saved money is eroded.
Then there were other policies, such as “quantitative easing”. All have been stoking inflation.
Of course, hucksters in what passes for a government are attributing the economic problems of the UK (and Europe more widely) to Putin or his invasion of the Ukrainian failed state, problems with grain exports from Ukraine, even to “climate change” and, indeed, to “Covid” itself. Anything but misconceived government actions: “lockdown” shutdowns, furlough payments, unchecked business grants and loans from public funds, massively huge monies wasted on “test and trace” etc, not to mention the crazy sanctions against Russia.
For 1-2 years, the “British” government (in reality, “ZOG”) paid much of the population to stay at home watching TV, eating delivered pizzas and drinking far too much. Now, there is an explosion of ill-health, of social and psychological problems, and of inflation.
The DDR (East Germany) was a strange anomaly of history, and an odd place to see. I was there for a couple of days in 1988, only a year or so before it crumbled to nothing. More like a facade of a state than a real one.
I was in transit by road from Poland to West Germany, crossed over (literally, via a bridge over the river Neisse) at Gorlitz, a little-used crossing-point, and stayed overnight (unofficially— I bribed the desk clerk) in a non-approved modern hotel at Bautzen. I was unaware at the time that Bautzen was also the location of arguably the worst prison of the DDR, where the most-reviled dissidents were incarcerated in terrible conditions.
Officially, transit-visa holders were supposed to stay at an “Interhotel”, of which there was only one on my route, near Dresden. Pay 10x as much (10x more even than my inflated/bribe price) and get snooped upon as well. Nein danke.
The desk clerk at Bautzen asked me and my companion (who was the driver) not to use the bar (he supplied a couple of bottles of good-quality East German beer). The car was parked in a locked garage out of sight. He also asked us not to open doors for anyone, and said that the Volkspolizei (political police) checked the hotel register at 0700 every morning. Very East German, as was the water supply: warm water in the bathroom washbasin, but none in the shower. Not a maintenance problem— the shower was designed to dispense only cold water! A 20thC Sparta.
Still, leaving aside those inconveniences and worries (we were not written into the hotel register), the hotel was actually quite comfortable. Large rooms with picture windows, spacious public areas, pleasant carpeting, speedy lifts etc. It might have been even a 4-star in the West, if one overlooked the cold shower and the chance of being arrested by the Volkspolizei…
East Germany was, like Scarborough (or was it Skegness?) in the famous old British rail-travel poster, “so bracing“…
Back then, people said that the two Germanies were like an orange and an apple, impossible to stick back together. Now, huge effort and money has tried to make it happen, though only partly-successfully.
East Germany/DDR is thought of as having been a rather small country, but that is a relative fact: nearly 42,000 square miles, so not much smaller than England (just over 50,000 square miles), nearly one-and-a-half times the area of Scotland (30,000 sq, miles), and over five times the size of Wales (8,000 sq. miles).[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Germany].
The game is now again in the hazard. Putin’s closure of gas supply (to less than a third of the normal flow) will hit Germany hard. Anything could happen.
Starmer is as dull as ditchwater (as I blogged even when he was installed in place of Corbyn). What he says is no more stupidly vacuous than the outpourings of Liz Truss, Sunak, or Boris-idiot, but even less interestingly and convincingly delivered.
I feel much more sorry for all those British people who are homeless, homeless not least because of all the non-European parasites who have flooded the country over the past few decades.
Trudeau is the figurehead for all that. Canadians…you know what to do.

OK, but from another perspective, those Ukrainian civilians are not being treated at all brutally, no more than would be a protest crowd in London; arguably, far less brutally. Russian weaponry may incite fear, but the soldiers themselves do not, it seems.
As previously blogged, the Boris-idiot government will make sure that everything wrong in Britain for years to come will be blamed on Russia and Putin. For one thing, all the money wasted on two years of “panicdemic” propaganda and useless, pointless, “measures” (lockdowns, shutdowns, “furlough” payments, billions in fraudulent “loans”, tens of billions on completely useless “test and trace” etc), and consequent inflation caused by erosion of the real value of the pound sterling. Now we read that inflation may top 10% in a year. That is the fault of this government, not Putin’s.
…and soon, even to say these things online is going to be made a crime, via the Online Harms Bill/Act.
An evil little monkey.
Can you believe that the Western world is led by the USA, which is “led” by idiots of the Pelosi sort, and by Biden, a demented old fellow who can hardly get the day of the week right? Not that the UK is any better: Boris-idiot, Liz Truss, shopworn Indian “clever boy” Sunak, Priti Patel, Sajid Javid, Ben Wallace (etc). Hardly any are really even British.

Very interesting, and very true.
A few more thoughts.
As Kiev inhabitants continue to flee, the food stocks in Kiev will last longer than the 2+ weeks predicted by Zelensky. How long they will last, though, is almost anyone’s guess. I presume that the defending forces will have stocks for far longer than the civilian population.
I have been looking at Google Maps and Google Earth to see the layout of Kiev, a city which I have never visited. I see not just the river Dnieper, but other streams, marshes etc. Approach from the northeast and east is difficult. The Dnieper cannot easily be bridged almost immediately south of Kiev because of the width of the river (dammed in several places for hydroelectricity). The same is true immediately north of the city. There is one crossing on the northern outskirts.
There have been isolated missile strikes in Kiev, probably to frighten the population into leaving.
I note a strange fact: despite the Russian forces having done huge damage to some of the Ukrainian cities, there has been no attack on Russian cities (except in the disputed Donbass area) by Ukrainian/Kiev-regime forces.
To me, that indicates either that the Kiev regime simply has no forces capable of attacking the small Russian towns near the border (Donetsk, a major city, is right on the border of Russia but on the notionally “Ukrainian” side), or that Zelensky is trying to maintain the “victim” narrative, i.e. that Russian forces are attacking civilians, but that the Ukrainian forces are not (except in Donetsk and the Donbass generally).
In colloquial terms, Zelensky has “played a blinder” in terms of international public relations. He is perceived now, in much of the West, not as a Jew clown, and as the figurehead puppet-on-a-stick of an ultra-wealthy and corrupt Jewish cabal, and with a $40,000,000 home in Florida (and God knows how much in offshore bank accounts), but as the brave Tribune of the People, a people under merciless attack by a ruthless and powerful enemy.
Ukraine has public relations but (it seems) scarcely any army, navy, or air force.
That tentative conclusion is supported by the fact that no attack was made on the now-famous “40-mile-long” Russian column north of Kiev. Even a defensive fortress-Kiev plan would, surely, allow for attacks on supply columns and the like?
Put simply, that column was not attacked because there was no-one to attack it.
Despite the huge destruction in Kharkov and in the smaller southern cities, I think that Putin wants Kiev to fall without too much damage, if possible. He may even have some idea of repopulating it with Russians, on a permanent basis.
Having said that, my assessment has been and remains that, if Putin can only “win” by flattening every city in Ukraine, he will do it.

I do not claim that it is original to call that ship’s operator the Border Farce, but it is certainly the case.
I think we know in our hearts that, somewhere down the line, the results of all this will have to be dealt with harshly, come what may.
Largely a result of the 30+ years of poverty and its consequences, under a succession of Jewish-Zionist-dominated cabal “governments”.

Nearest public square— firing squad (in an ideal world)…
Wise words, the voice of brief but bitter experience. When I was in Southern Africa (Rhodesia and Botswana) for a while in 1977, I met a number of people with varied military experience around the world: British ex-Marines and Paras, American ex-U.S. Rangers, ex-U.S. Marines and others, the odd New Zealander, some South Africans, and a Portuguese who had fought against Frelimo in Mozambique; even an Israeli.
I recall one Brit, conventional military provenance unknown but (I think) genuine or real, telling people his experiences fighting with the notorious “Colonel” Callan (in fact a Greek Cypriot and former Parachute Regiment corporal) in Angola in 1976. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costas_Georgiou.
According to the said British person, there were wannabee mercenaries from the UK, with no military experience at all, who had been flown to Africa, signed up to the FNLA “army”, given weapons and uniforms, and then pretty much turned out into the field, into battle, fighting experienced African communist/nationalist guerrilla fighters and Cuban Army units.
Apparently, many of the Brit “mercenaries” did not even know enough to get themselves down on the ground when the enemy opened fire! Many were killed not very long after arrival, massacred in contacts with MPLA or Cuban units in the long grass of Southern Africa.
Oddly enough, the Brit telling the story defended “Callan” (plainly a murderous psychopath, who by mid-1976 had been captured, then tried and executed in Loanda), saying that he would get angry because some of the British would-be mercenaries refused to fight.
Whatever the truth of the above, the fact is that many Brits and others are now volunteering for war service with the Kiev regime. Some may have good though misguided motivations, others may scent loot. Those with little battle experience may not last very long.
Incidentally, two of the socialist “international observers” at that trial were Jack Dromey and Stephen Sedley.
Stephen Sedley, a barrister, was later Sir Stephen, and a Lord Justice of Appeal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Sedley. I myself appeared in front of him as Counsel a couple of times, when he sat as a judge of the High Court in the 1990s.
As blogged previously, do you still think that the lockdown shutdown(s), fraudulent “loans”, “test and trace” nonsense, “furlough” baksheesh etc, all came at no cost? Think again…
Thank God for that, at least! I myself am not against a modest number of (real) Ukrainians, especially if genuine refugees, coming to the UK, because they are European, and because some at least are quite cultured. However, I am talking about hundreds, not hundreds of thousands.
As some commentators have noted, there actually is scarcely any conventional Ukrainian Army worth talking about, at least not on any large scale. The corruption and chaotic misrule emanating from Kiev for the past 30+ years has stripped the Ukrainian armed forces of most of their past (Soviet) effectiveness.
We have already seen, in the past couple of weeks since the invasion began, that the Kiev-regime air force has been either destroyed on the ground or shot down. In fact, the most noteworthy fighter pilot on the Kiev-regime side, the so-called “Ghost of Kiev”, turned out to be just an Internet “meme” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_of_Kyiv].
The Kiev regime has effectively no navy.
The Ukrainian Army has in fact been conspicuous by its absence, but that is probably because, as previously blogged, the decision has been made that it would be suicidal for the forces of the Kiev regime to confront the Russian Army in battles reminiscent of the Battle of Kursk in 1943 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Kursk].
It seems that the strategy of the Ukrainian/Kiev-regime side mimics that of the Russians during Napoleon’s disastrous 1812 invasion of Russia, occupation of Moscow, and eventual retreat from Russia.
Incidentally, Tolstoy’s famous War and Peace starts with the words “On the twelfth of June, 1812, the forces of Western Europe crossed the Russian frontier and war began, that is, an event took place opposed to human reason and to human nature.” Note that: not “French forces” but “the forces of Western Europe“, which was in fact the case. See the overall order of battle in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_invasion_of_Russia.
The tactics of the Russians in 1812, at least during Napoleon’s retreat from Moscow, might be called “shoot and scoot” or hit-and-run.
Those tactics of 1812 are now being used by the forces of the Kiev regime.
There have now begun to appear, in some American publications, comments to the effect that the tactics that Zelensky’s forces are using may be effective, but lack any real strategy.
The overall Ukrainian/Zelensky regime plan seems to be to barricade, fortify and defend cities, particularly Kiev, while using those shoot and scoot tactics to wear down the Russian forces by attrition: shooting down helicopters and planes, ambushing tank columns, launching only skirmish raids on the ground.
On the other hand, after a more than sluggish start, the Russian forces are now beginning to take the smaller cities such as Kherson (290,000 inhabitants, and only 17th in terms of population, if Crimean cities are included: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_in_Ukraine).
Kiev is being encircled steadily now, and food as well as ammunition is in short supply (the Zelensky regime claims that Kiev has food for two weeks).
The Russians are bringing up more troops now. Also supplies. As Gilad Atzmon notes in his blog (see above), the now-famous 40-mile-long Russian column north of Kiev seems not to have been subject to any, or any significant attack.
The Kiev-regime side is weak, despite the huge amounts of advanced infantry-use weaponry now being funnelled into Ukraine by NATO (weaponry which will in part no doubt find its way into the hands of terrorist groups hostile to the West in due course, as happened after Afghanistan, Iraq etc).
The Russians obviously intend to take smallest population centres first, before working their way up to the largest cities.
I am presuming that the assault on Kiev will not start in earnest until the food and ammunition available to the defenders has been reduced more. After that, air power and artillery (the latter of which Russians refer to as “our mother guns“, a Russian speciality since the 19th Century) will reduce the city. Then infantry will storm whatever is left, supported by armour.
Russian infantry (and perhaps Syrian mercenaries, hardened and experienced in the terrible conflict in that country) will then fight their way into the very centre of Kiev.
In the 1945 Battle of Berlin, the Soviet forces are said to have used no less than 41,600 artillery pieces! See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Berlin. Such numbers are certainly not available to the Russians now, but of course the artillery pieces they do have are even more destructive.
There is no way for the forces under Zelensky’s generals to win this war (as it now has become), unless they can wear down the Russians by huge losses of men and materiel. At present, unless the peace talks achieve success, Kiev may soon suffer the fate of other cities that have historically been almost destroyed: Warsaw, Berlin etc.
The Ukrainian or Kiev-regime side will probably (as I blogged weeks ago) soon or quite soon be confined militarily to the western side of Ukraine; west of the Dnieper, north of the Black Sea littoral.
Photographs seen yesterday indicate that there are still huge numbers of civilians fleeing Kiev. The city may soon be a battlefield, but one in which the poor, sick, infirm (and many animals) will be trapped as the war rages around them.
This is a terrible situation, and one which need not have been anything like as bad as it has become. Having said that, it is hard to see what the West, or NATO, or the NWO, is trying to achieve by supplying weapons to Zelensky’s regime. The armaments will not be enough to defeat the Russians, but they will be enough to prolong and intensify the agony.
Zelensky’s regime’s forces have no prospect of defeating Russia in the field. If need be, Russia can flatten every Ukrainian city, destroy every railway, and every hub or concentration of Ukrainian forces, using air power (including missiles fired from Russia itself). That would be a terrible thing to happen, but my assessment is that Putin would do it if he had no other option but abandon his plans.
As to the peace talks, hard to say how they can succeed but, as Churchill said, “jaw jaw is better than war war” (a prescription he himself rarely followed). The talks seem not to be affecting the fighting, though.
Looking about two months down the road, I imagine that the Russian invasion will see those eastern and southern areas occupied, but at a terrible price. As to western areas, and as I predicted weeks ago, there will be a rump Zelensky regime in Lvov (unless he is killed or captured), but its ability to do more than launch guerrilla attacks outside the region must be seen to be very limited.
Effects of the conflict
The Russian economy as it now is will collapse under the weight of Western sanctions. When that will happen is uncertain. However, a basic Russian economy will keep going. As noted in previous blog posts, Russia can survive and perhaps quite well under autarky, a form of economy favoured by Putin’s main philosophic influence (it is said), Alexander Dugin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Dugin]. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasianism.
What about the Western economies? Perhaps they will also collapse. If Putin shuts off gas to Germany, for example, “collapse of stout party”…
We are seeing, I think, what is just the start of a complete redrawing of the boundaries, and perhaps the meaning, of Europe.
Of course, when the msm says “Russian”, what they should be saying is “Jewish”…
In fact this is ironic, in that those squatters are doing to the Jew’s London residence exactly the same as the Jewish “oligarchs” did to the entire Russian economy in the 1990s, i.e. squat on the industrial, commercial and logistical assets of the Russian people, live off them like leeches, and effectively steal them. How else do you think “Russian” Jews like Abramovitch “made their money”?
Hitler was right. The USA is indeed “half-judaized and half-negrified“, and that becomes more obvious daily.
Ditto (see my last comment…).
Exactly. If you are British, you will get no help, nor even a Twitter or YouTube virtue-signal, from the likes of Sandi Toksvig, Jo Brand, various Jewish comics etc. You can go whistle for help (or “raise the banners!” and take what you need…).

Some replies on that thread make the point that Priti Patel makes £82K salary (as an MP). In fact, as Home Secretary she gets about as much again…MP salary and Home Secretary salary. To think that, under other circumstances, she would just have been another fat baba behind the counter of a Kampala grocery store…

My Australian (though sometimes resident in London) niece, about 25-y-o, contracted “Covid-19” in 2020, and lost her senses of taste and smell for a week or so. She was advised to stay home, drink water, and take a paracetamol. No medical intervention necessary. She recovered completely after 2-3 weeks.
A pack of idiots posing as the UK Government closed down the country for this…Now look. National Insurance rising, taxes for most rising, cost of living rising, pay inadequate for most, State pension age rising. Still think that the unnecessary “lockdowns” and “furlough” payments were great? Think again.
As for Boris-idiot, it took the bulk of the British people about 15 years to catch up with my opinion of him, and it took the msm almost as long, if not longer, but now almost everyone wants him to get kicked out. The only problem with replacing him is that there are so few MPs who are both actually English and also not total deadheads…
A thought out of season…
Two young boys aged 10. One of the two becomes, for a few short years, the master of Europe; the other, an “ordinary citizen”, at least so far.
What weight do we give to genetics, environment, Nature, nurture, education, personal destiny, reincarnation etc? Rudolf Steiner was, I think, right to say that, in terms of society, education of the child carries huge weight. On the other hand, so do the other factors. I suppose that education of children is something that can be decided upon rationally in policy terms; it is within the power of humanity to change policy, purpose, and content.
The last bit is the killer: “with family help“. Quite.
Every now and then, you read some silly comment on Twitter or in the newspaper readers’ comments sections to the effect that young or not so young people could buy houses, even in the UK’s ludicrously-inflated property market, if only the people concerned would cease patronizing Starbucks or Pizza Express. I suppose that some idiots even believe that.
It is true that many waste money; few of us never do that. How much, though? When the deposit alone for even a very modest house, on sale for, say, £200,000 (and that is far below the national average), is something like £20,000 to £40,000, it is going to take the hypothetical young twenty-something couple rather a lot of saving-up, when many people are living hand to mouth to start with. They might manage it by the time they are 40-50 years old. Maybe.
Not everyone has a father who was the Chairman of Christies…
Actually this type of unwanted and silly “advice” broadcast to the poorer part of society is not very English, despite making appearances in Dickens and elsewhere (eg the works of Samuel Smiles: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Smiles). It is rather American: the poor are poor because feckless and useless, the rich are rich because clever, virtuous and well-organized.
As with all propaganda, there is a kernel of truth there, but as Churchill noted, the truth often has to have a bodyguard of lies. In this case, the amount of truth is very small, the false large though persuasive to many.
At least the pre-revolutionary Russian aristocracy was honest enough not to claim that most Russians were poor because of character flaws, despite their often having some.
The David Cameron-Levita government specialized in nonsense of the Kirsty Allsopp sort, and that rhetoric underpinned the “welfare” “reforms” of the part-Jap sadist Iain Duncan Smith, a charlatan whose very name is fake! As were his “degrees”, and work history. He has never been punished for the misery he has inflicted.
The above tweeter fondly believes that “#ToryScumOut” will not result in what might be termed “#LabourScumIn“…It was Labour who trashed lower-level pay by importing cheap labour from all over the world, Labour who, from 1997 and especially 2005 started to screw down on the unemployed and disabled, Labour who introduced the fraudulent ATOS carpetbaggers. Rachel Reeves, Yvette Cooper, and others around the present Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer have all made statements similar to those of Conservative MPs on these topics.
Labour-label is no answer (to anything).
Quite. When I was 19, in 1976, I was doing various kinds of low-paid work, and living in the attic of a friend’s house in Little Venice, London. The work paid less than £100 a week, and the house was valued (a few years later) at £100,000. In 2022, that same house is valued at around £4 million, and the kind of work I was doing in 1976 would pay today maybe £400 a week, quite possibly less than that.
So in those 45 years, the price of that house has risen by 40 times its original value, but the work in question now pays no more than 4 times what it did in 1976.
Outside the better parts of London, the ratio might be lower, but not very much so. I recall idly gazing into the window of an estate agency in Seaton, Devon, in 1998. I just happened to be there for a few hours.
I noticed three small bungalows for sale for between £25,000 and £28,000 each! They were very small, 1-2 bedroom places no doubt once used as weekend (near) beach places (pre-WW2). Out of curiosity, I looked online a few years ago. There was a very similar one for sale in the same town: £200,000. Probably far more now. An inflation of ten times the valuation in about ~20 years. Pay in 2022 is generally not ten times what it was in the late 1990s.
This Anglo-American “pull yourself up by your own bootstraps” idea is quite ingrained. Homeless and without capital or income? Well, just start a roadside lemonade stall, and soon you too will be a millionaire or more…
That nonsense, fed to children and adults in the USA (especially) in various ways, has been socio-politically very influential. Retailed via such as the old and now-defunct Reader’s Digest (which I am sure had some kind of CIA connection): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reader%27s_Digest.
When I was having a cappuccino in my old haunt of the 1980s and early 1990s, Raoul’s Cafe, Little Venice, I happened to share a table with someone, an American, who turned out to have been the former head of the Reader’s Digest. I suppose that politeness prevented me from asking him who laid down the overall ideological line (and he would not have said anything about that anyway).
One of the total cancers in our society is the huge money available to approved TV monkeys-on-sticks. A few random examples? The “celebrity chefs”, some of whom do not actually even have restaurants (and some that do have them are not apparently very good anyway). Some are genuine chefs, others are not, but almost all seem to make much of their large incomes from TV shows.
When I read that some of those chefs have £50 million or £100 million capital, I cannot believe it. I concede that I am no businessman…
Other examples? The general “celebrity” TV (etc) world. Admittedly, I usually have never heard of said “celebrities” when I see them on charity quiz shows (almost invariably they are extremely ignorant). It sometimes feels like the whole world and his dog are “celebrities”.
The BBC, with its enormous budget, enormous because people have to pay the “licence fee” (tax), is responsible in part. Imagine paying an unpleasant idiot like Gary Lineker a million a year just to shoot the breeze about football games!
Television, in practice, by which I mean the kind of (((occupied))) television that exists in the West, especially, is very corrosive. South Africa started to lose its strength after TV was introduced in the mid-1970s. Import American (((American))) TV, and you import the mores of the you-know-whos…
Those who make huge money from TV are desperate to stay, to use a dated expression, “in with the in crowd”. Any remark designated “racist” and/or “anti-Semitic”, will kill the maker’s career stone-dead, of course. The Jews, exercizing great influence in the TV world, will blackball anyone not thought to be on board with their agenda.
I have little to add to what I have said in earlier blog posts. The present regime in Kiev is a corrupt and shambolic Jewish-Zionist set-up that must go. Russia must take Kiev, Eastern Ukraine, and the Black Sea littoral. It must do it swiftly and overwhelmingly, to minimize civilian casualties and general damage. By this time next year, it will be impossible, so do it now, for the right reasons and in the right way.
Robert Largan is a horrible little bastard. He kicked satirical singer Alison Chabloz when she was down, by tweeting how pleased he was that she had been imprisoned. He is a craven puppet of the Jewish-Zionist-Israel lobby.
Amazingly self-assured performance from such a young girl. Incidentally, “valenki” are felt boots (traditional Russian winter footwear).
Made a foray into a small suburbanized town about 6 miles from my now-humble home. Driving along, and waiting in the car for a while, I was observing the local people. At the railway station, quite a few (what I took to be) 16-18 y-o school students waiting. Every single one was looking at, indeed absorbed in, her or his mobile device, apparently oblivious to other people, the natural world, everything. Few seemed to be typing (if that is the right word); just silently, it seemed, staring down at the device. Strange society…
The other oddity was how many of the older people in the main —in fact only— shopping street were wearing facemasks while walking along; that despite the sun and a light breeze (and the low temperature). About half. The facemask nonsense has become ingrained in the more “conditioned” or less-thinking part of the public.
“POLICE were called to Ringwood School this morning (Monday) as a small group of anti-Covid vaccination protesters forced their way onto its grounds.
The alarm was raised around 8.20am amid reports six people demonstrating against pupils being given the jab had turned up at the school in Parsonage Barn Lane. They gained entry via the reception area.
Twelve patrol cars were said to have been at the scene while officers dealt with the incident as both the Hampshire force and the school assured there was no danger to youngsters or staff.” [local newspaper report].
So no less than 12 police cars were sent to monitor a tiny and peaceful local civic protest involving only six individuals? No wonder the police are unable to deploy resources to deal with ordinary crime. Just as well that no-one made an “anti-Semitic” remark, or it might have been necessary to call for armed anti-terror police back-up…
Quite often now, it appears that this country has gone absolutely mad.
…and we see inflation destroying, starting to destroy, the pay, pensions, and State benefits of the mass of the population. In the early 1920s, particularly 1923, the Weimar Republic currency suffered from hyperinflation, as paper currency was printed in vast amounts.
German hyperinflation destroyed pay, fixed pensions, savings bank deposits, but it also destroyed the enormous war debts and reparation debts incurred by German governments over many years.
Getting it now?
The Rishi Sunak “giveaways” were not really free…he is an “Indian giver”, in short.
This is the thin end of the wedge. As I have been blogging recently, this is a small example of what we shall see in the future, regardless of what happens re. the “panicdemic”. Microchipped populations unable to dissent, on pain of being unable to travel, work, socialize, or even buy food, unless the System allows that via the implanted chip.
Quite. Hugely overpaid idiots such as Gary Lineker. I love the way they are all starting to squawk as they see their rice-bowls about to be taken away.

A tweet from 2020 worth reposting
On this day a year ago
Still think that “lockdowns”, “furlough payments”, public “support” monies thrown at hotels and pubs, and other such nonsense (and paying for migrant-invaders) all come somehow free-of-charge to the British people? Think again…
Very true. Cleese once lived opposite a lady I knew in the Bayswater part of London. That lady knew everything about the people in her street, it seemed. Cleese later moved (1980s) to Malibu, near Los Angeles, and I believe he is still there.
[update, same day: I am told now that Cleese may have decamped from Malibu and be living on the island of Nevis, Eastern Caribbean].
Cleese’s old Monty Python people, such as Michael Palin, can be smugly “liberal”, living as they do in millionaire comfort in places such as Hampstead, but it’s all so fake.
When I was a practising barrister in chambers (1993-1996 and 2002-2008), I had to have a mobile telephone. Now I do not. I do not miss it.
I would say that that is what happens when the police are armed but the public is unarmed, but what gives me pause is that many Americans are armed to the teeth, yet show little inclination to open fire on the servants of the state, or even on opponents.
That might have been one answer. Another might be, as I suggested in tweets until 2018 (when a pack of Jews procured my expulsion from that forum) to make agreement with Russia. A closer relationship with Russia, withdrawal from NATO, and the Russians would have sold the UK gas at rock-bottom prices, and in unlimited amounts.
I happened to hear some “Insulate Britain” “activist” on BBC Radio 4 PM a couple of days ago. I had not heard such a smug bastard on the radio or TV for a long time. Entirely sure of the rectitude of his cause, sure that the population as a whole needs to be told (what to believe) etc. Someone who really needs a good kicking.
The interesting thing is that all such people seem to think that doing disruptive things such as blocking the motorways will actually do something concrete to “stop climate change” or “reduce UK emissions”, when the UK only produces 1% of relevant “emissions” anyway, while China is building something like 2-3 new coal-fired power stations every week!
Some people (maybe even the same people) talk about “Little Englanders”, but there can be few so narrow in their outlook as these (supposedly) “green” activists, with their idea that blocking the M25 for a while will “save the planet”. What do they do after the protest has been filmed for TV? Get in a convoy of SUVs and go home to Stroud, or Sevenoaks, probably.
Meanwhile, China carries on building power stations, India carries on polluting, both carry on producing more Chinese and Indians, and Africans carry on breeding prolifically too. Ultimately, the problems of pollution etc are caused by too many human beings on the Earth at present.
If you or I were homeless, we would not be put in (reasonably or good-quality) hotels while teams of civil servants from central government try to find us houses and flats.
From one point of view, what is happening is madness; from another, it has method and purpose: the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan to destroy European race and culture, and to create a raceless, cultureless mass, easily manipulated and controlled by (((NWO/ZOG))).
It could be argued that a creature such as the “ISIS” groupie, Shamima Begum, is almost (though not part-European) typical in that sense: one moment she is swathed in the all-covering garments of the Dark Ages of fanatical Islam, the next moment she is chewing gum, wearing a T-shirt and a baseball cap, and might easily be seen in a shopping mall in the UK or USA (with or without a bomb).
From the point of view of the enemies of our race and culture, taking over long-established charities such as RNLI and National Trust has dual benefits: it means that those charities, with their loyal supporters and huge income streams, can be abused to trash the UK; secondly, that very fact makes the British people further lose heart that decent white culture and civilization can be maintained…
Early evening music
I have blogged about this in the past.
99% trash. A millstone around the neck of Europe.
Late tweets seen
I do not drink coffee in the evening, but if I did…
Boris-idiot is an appalling Prime Minister, but the masses seem to give him what the mediaeval revels called “the Fool’s Freedom”. That says more about the British masses than about “Boris”. As I wrote a couple of years ago, the British people have already discounted the many flaws and weaknesses of “Boris”, with the result that no scandal can touch him. He has, in the contemporary expression, “weaponized” his own deficiencies.
That leaves Starmer and Labour with yet another problem to add to their main ones— for what does Labour stand? What is Labour for? Effectively the same problem.
The Jew-Zionist lobby managed to get Corbyn binned. Starmer was put in Corbyn’s place, and all, or almost all, the Shadow Cabinet are now Labour Friends of Israel members. For the Zionist lobby, it really does not matter whether Labour fails to recover (entirely likely) or not. For the lobby, all that matters is that both System political parties of importance are under the Jewish/Israeli thumb (or heel).
It will be interesting to see what happens to Labour’s candidates in the two upcoming by-elections. In the first, at Chesham and Amersham, this coming Thursday (17 June 2021), Labour may struggle to retain its deposit. In the second by-election, at Batley and Spen (1 July 2021), Labour will be fighting to retain the seat.
Labour’s problem in directly electoral terms is not that its former voters might vote Conservative, Green, or whatever else, but that many will simply stay at home, whether literally or, in the case of postal voters, metaphorically.
I missed the tweet below (from weeks ago). I endorse the sentiments:
Many will recall Joan Ryan, the Israel-lobby one-time Labour MP, who was caught conspiring with Israeli intelligence officer Shai Masot a few years ago (Masot had a million-pound slush fund from Israel, with which to buy MPs, in effect).
Take away the unsustainable “furlough” payments, and take away the governmental support payments for small business and self-employed people, then ask the same or similar question again…and then ask a similar question a couple of months later. The “public opinion” will have shifted. Much.
The police have largely given up trying to police ordinary crime, and have shifted personnel and resources to trying to police socio-political expression, which is not their job (or their business). Much (not all but most) of it is driven (from behind the scenes) by the Jew-Zionist element aiming at the censoring of any criticism of the behaviour of Jews and/or Israel, as evidence my experience of some 4 years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.
In some ways, Cornwall is very different from England proper. I lived for a couple of years at Polapit Tamar manor house, about 4 miles north of Launceston, and only a short distance from the River Tamar itself (Tala Water, a stream that runs through the property, is a tributary of the Tamar).
Exactly. “Controlled opposition”, which was engendered, arguably, by the Okhrana in the early 20thC (Father Gapon etc), is now seen everywhere. Julia Hartley-Brewer cited in the tweet above, but also think Delingpole, anyone in the Spectator, pretty much; also Breitbart, Tommy Robinson, Katie Hopkins, “Prison Planet” Watson, the pseudo-dissident bits of the Daily Mail and other msm outlets, as well as snake-oil salesmen like Farage (and pretty much anyone part of the whole UKIP/Brexit Party/Reform Party circus); others too.
How do you tell who or what is “controlled opposition”? The rule of thumb is, if they support —or are not hostile to— Israel and/or the Jewish lobby, then bin them. Controlled opposition.
Migration invasion. Santitized. Soon not reported on. All part of the “Great Reset”, Great Replacement, Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan or, putting it more honestly, down the line, White Genocide. The reality is behind the names.
Yes, David Icke and many others broadly aware of the above (and willing to oppose it openly) have been removed from social media platforms over the past few years. As always, the organized Zionist-Jew lobby is behind much of the “deplatforming”. I was expelled from Twitter in 2018. Icke followed a couple of years later. Many others have trodden the same “Sibirsky Trakt“.
In fact, unlike the dissidents of Imperial Russia and their even less fortunate Soviet successors, most of today’s dissident thinkers and activists do not end up doing time (though some do). It is far more subtle than that.
People lose jobs or professions (as I would have done —disbarred in 2016— had I myself not already binned mainstream life), are subject to occasional harassment by authorities, are bit by bit removed from social media and so from influencing online opinion, are prevented anyway from publishing offline via mainstream publishers (one of the first to fall victim was the historian, David Irving: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Irving).
In my own case, from about 2009 to about 2015, Jews managed to get my book reviews (I was a “top 50” reviewer, one of the top 50 reviewers out of millions, as voted for by Amazon users) taken off both UK Amazon and US Amazon (so much for “the land of freedom”…because where “they” exist in large numbers, there never is any freedom).
I was then pursued via my then professional regulator, the Bar Standards Board, which eventually led to my disbarment (in England) in 2016 (in fact unlawfully, but that is not worth detailing right now).
Later, in 2018, I was removed from Twitter (I was never on Facebook).
You see the pattern. So far, American platforms such as WordPress have resisted (95% resisted) calls to “deplatform” me and others. How long a blog such as this will be available for the people to read is an open question.
The “panicdemic”, the “climate change” narrative, nonsense such as “Black Lives Matter” etc (all supported, you will have noticed by the big battalions of the msm such as Sky and the BBC, CNN, Hollywood etc), are but notes or Leitmotive in a symphony of socio-political “change” being played according to an agreed “composition”…
The definition(s) below made me laugh; largely true…
“I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think,” Park said in an interview with Fox News. “I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying.“
“Those similarities include anti-Western sentiment, collective guilt and suffocating political correctness.” [Yeonmi Park, on Fox News]
Well worth listening to what she has to say. In the end, this can only end one way…
I dislike mobs and mob rule, but it is clear that the unfortunate journalist, Nick Watt, was catching the flak that should have been fired at those nearer the top of the BBC, which has become, over the past couple of decades, a biased State broadcaster, with no more credibility than had the Soviet news media of the pre-1989 period.
