More interesting to me than the content of the above (not uninteresting though it is) is the fact that Katie Hopkins has been allowed back onto Twitter.

I also am minded to return to Twitter, and with “blue tick”, mainly in order to promote my blog, but also in order to mock (simply by being back on Twitter) the Jew-Zionist pack that had me expelled in 2018; also, to irritate the self-promoting would-be “celebrities” etc who managed to get those blue ticks previously.

I would not go quite as far as that, in that I am unsure as to whether “Jack Monroe” had fraudulent intent right from the start. I concede, though, that her evident lack of interest in paying back monies taken (or even engaging with former donors) does give a rather poor impression, at the very least.

See also: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.

I have held similar views, and have expressed them, for some 40+ years.

I have come to the conclusion that “Jack Monroe”, aka “Bootstrap Cook”, is about 1% positive for society, and 99% negative…

The more I have learned about her, her behaviour, and her whole contrived sales pitch, the less I have been inclined to be favourable to her and it.

Many people really want to “believe”, though, and prefer to shut their eyes to the facts. As of today, and despite months of increasing online and even msm disquiet around the “Jack Monroe” “brand”, 665 mugs are still remitting to her up to £10 a month, every month, via the website Patreon.

I agree with her on those particular points (but not on many others), though I struggle to accept that a self-describing “journalist” seems to be only semi-literate.

I may be mistaken, but I think that I read some time ago that she was a student at Durham University. Literacy seems to be dying out in the UK, as witness the product of all the “Justins” and “Emilys” scribbling for the online Daily Mail and other news outlets.

Re. the behaviour of half-Jew Raab, people should also be asking the question as to whether Raab behaves like that because he is not up to the job. It is a frequently-seen phenomenon in people who want the status of a powerful job but who are not really up to doing it.

Williamson’s rise to power and influence (he is probably washed-up now) was indeed puzzling, a fact that I noted in my 2019 assessment of him: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/02/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-gavin-williamson-story/.

Ukraine

As I predicted, Russia will now run an “oblique war” strategy, just as the Americans have done in the past in some parts of the world. In between the first Gulf War and the second, the actual invasion of Iraq, the Americans, via both sanctions and other measures, followed by missile attacks, did what one analyst called “breaking every bone in Iraq’s body without killing it“. That meant degrading and eventually destroying the electrical power infrastructure and, inter alia, the water and sewerage systems (the latter, in Baghdad and elsewhere, relied on electricity, not gravity).

Ukraine was already a “failed state”, more or less, before this war. Now it is a facade, propped up by Western aid, arms, ammunition and military training help. Economically, it is on its knees. Now, its electricity generation and distribution systems are also being reduced.

I would not write off Russia in this war.

World population

https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

News on the car radio this morning: there are now over 8 BILLION humans on Earth. In 1960, the figure was 3 billion. In other words, the world population is now not far from triple what it was only 62 years ago.

The detail is important, though. The rate of increase has slowed almost to a halt. Also, most of the population of the world is in a small number of countries: China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and a few others; and most of the increase in population is also in those and a few other countries.

The population of the USA has grown greatly in the past 60 years, but is now growing by only 0.1% annually. The same is true of many advanced countries. Some are not growing at all, others are growing only because of non-white immigration, but their core ethnic group is declining. Russia. Germany. UK. France.

There is now another factor: see https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/nov/15/humans-could-face-reproductive-crisis-as-sperm-count-declines-study-finds.

I have previously mooted the idea that the number of human or humanoid souls rushing into incarnation (so as to experience the type of civilization we have presently while it still exists) has perhaps, arguably, come to a halt. That is, if you like, a “spiritual” explanation for the material effects noted in that newspaper report.

For me, the world must have a smaller population, perhaps 10% of what now exists, perhaps even smaller. It is equally important that that population be mainly white Northern European. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/.

It is possible to lay the foundation, or the foundation of a foundation, for a later much higher level of evolution, a “super-race” if you like.

You carry in your blood the holy inheritance of your
fathers and forefathers. You do not know those who
have vanished in endless ranks into the darkness of the
past. But they all live in you and walk in your blood upon
the earth that consumed them in battle and toil and in
which their bodies have long decayed.

Your blood is therefore something holy. In it your parents gave you not only a body, but your nature. To deny your blood is to deny yourself. No one can
change it. But each decides to grow the good that one has
inherited and suppress the bad. Each is also given will
and courage.

You do not have only the right, but also the duty to pass
your blood on to your children, for you are a member of
the chain of generations that reaches from the past into
eternity, and this link of the chain that you represent
must do its part so that the chain is never broken.

But if your blood has traits that will make your children
unhappy and burdens to the state, then you have the
heroic duty to be the last. The blood is the carrier of life. You carry in it the secret of creation itself. Your blood is holy, for in it God’s will
lives.”

Either this incident was accidental, or the explosions are a false flag by the Zelensky regime, created to drag NATO into war with Russia. Either way, it was plainly not a deliberate attack on Poland, and thus should not trigger Article 5 of the NATO treaty.

In any case, now that states such as Poland, the Baltic states etc belong to NATO (which should never have happened), Article 5 should be abrogated. It is now nothing less than a dangerous trigger mechanism which may put all of Europe (and quite possible both the USA and Russia as well) to sword and flame.

This situation has been caused, at root, by the reckless NATO support for the Kiev regime. This is not our fight, and never has been.

An amusing parody of the tweets of “Bootstrap Cook”, aka “Jack Monroe”.

As to the real Jack Monroe, she is waiting for the (as she calls it) “trash fire” of criticism about her alleged “grifting”, untruthful back-story and/or “frauds” to abate, so that she can carry on making a good living by putting up a facade of “helping the poor” while taking in money from donors, “patrons”, the msm, and her book royalties. The whole lot may add up to £100,000 a year, or more. In the absence of transparency, it is hard to know.

I am just now looking at the Patreon page of the “Bootstrap Cook”: 664 patrons paying out between £3.50 and £10 a month for what is alleged to be…nothing, or nothing much.

She only had 663 mugs paying out yesterday, so she has actually gained one new mug-patron since yesterday, despite the tide of outrage. There’s one born every minute, or at least every day, it seems…

The way people, including people surviving on small State benefits, are subsidizing the lifestyle of “Jack Monroe”, reminds me of the way some deluded elderly people used to post £5 notes to the late Queen whenever she let slip some nonsensical statement in the Press about how she was “feeling the pinch” and so “having to economize”. Apparently, the donors would all be sent a nice letter as if from the Queen, thanking them for their gift. Shameless. Admittedly, I suppose that the late Queen could hardly refuse the money. Awkward.

The “oblique warfare” now being waged by Russia against Kiev-regime electricity generation will have a huge effect if it continues. The civilian population will be cold and unable to cook food, and manufacturing of equipment and arms will be halted.

Gas supplies from Russia were cut off when the war started. The next step may be to stop all electricity generation, eg by hitting the Dnieper dam and other hydro stations, and at the same time hitting road transport by hitting fuel-storage places.

The Kiev-regime army and air force will be unable to move far or fast once their fuel runs out.

I hear that the Kiev regime is also rapidly running out of ground-to-air missiles. If the supply runs out completely, there will probably be a Russian air offensive to cripple vital infrastructure further, as happened when the Americans attacked Iraq.

It is clear that the Russian Army is having problems with recruitment, training, and discipline, but the recruitment is going ahead, and presumably the other problems are being addressed.

It may be that, next summer, there will be a massive frontal assault on Kiev, with the aim of capturing the city, and driving the Jew Zelensky and his cohorts out of the city, to Lvov or overseas.

Amusing exchange

As regular readers will have noticed, my assessment of “Jack Monroe” published on 30 September 2022 noted that the fans of the “Bootstrap Cook” tend to be persons not at all badly-off, who (literally) support her for general socio-political reasons; in a word, middle-class virtue-signallers just like the tweeter there, one Freya Vass, an American now lecturing in dance at the University of Kent: see https://www.kent.ac.uk/arts/people/2144/vass-rhee-freya; https://uk.linkedin.com/in/freya-vass-62280029.

The “Bootstrap Cook” has hit a rich vein of gullibility from which to profit— people who imagine that they are doing their bit to improve the world by sending money to “Jack Monroe” to support the lifestyle of the same.

Here is another recent tweet reply by the same person, Freya Vass (who sounds pretty loony):

Incidentally, if anyone has not read that assessment of the “Bootstrap Cook”, here it is: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/. I think that it is fair (as all my profiles of the “famous” and/or infamous strive to be).

I somehow missed that in 2020.

If accurate, it proves that my instinct about Liz Truss, i.e. that she was being banged by woolly-head Kwarteng, was correct (indeed, if the document is to be believed, by young researchers as well).

Even I, thought cynical as can be about the MPs in the corrupt Westminster monkeyhouse, am surprised at the actual extent of the degeneracy.

Looks as if Indian supposed “clever boy” and money-juggler, Sunak, is finding the job not very easy.

The UK Government cannot defend its own borders yet is determined to help defend those of a shambolic, corrupt, failed “state” that did not even exist before 1991.

Strange. When I had to go to hospital unexpectedly from Cambridge County Court (about 15 years ago) with a minor problem, I was waiting between therapies, alone in a large area at around midday, when a porter came through with various lunch dishes for in-patients, and offered me anything I might want. I selected a fish and chips. No charge. Thanks very much. Still appreciated today.

Apropos of nothing much, when I first visited Qatar, in 2001 (before its explosive development), I returned to my pleasant hotel from a meeting, and felt hungry. Outside a room on my corridor, someone had left a room service plate outside a door, with an uneaten and unpeeled banana and orange on the plate. I took both fruits and enjoyed them in my room, but then thought “what if that was caught on camera? Might I get my hand chopped off for the sake of that bloody banana?” In fact, no (Islamic law is not quite as strict as that anyway, even in Saudi Arabia), but it gave me a few anxious minutes.

Migration invasion

Even the largely-“controlled” Spectator has sat up and taken notice. The cartoon should be more menacing, though, to reflect the reality— invasion by economic migrants and/or criminals rather than desperate migration by “refugees”.

Derbyshire Police— useless again

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/woman-uses-iphone-hack-track-28419140

It will be recalled by regular readers of the blog that Derbyshire Police performed most ignominiously during the 2020-2021 “panicdemic”, bullying and harassing fell walkers and picnickers. The same force had previously behaved atrociously towards Alison Chabloz (who was at the time resident in the Peak District).

Seems that Derbyshire Police find dealing with real crime rather harder.

British “justice”, 2022

£750 compensation and a suspended sentence for attacking the victim from behind, with a hammer, and in a sustained attack which ended only when an uninvolved third party happened upon the scene.

Evidently premeditated as well, in my view, though admittedly there is a bit of wriggle-room there, on the facts as reported.

Why was this not charged at a higher level? Surely, on the reported facts, there was a case of attempted GBH to be made out, or even attempted murder?

Sacked Jew criticizes Elon Musk. Elon Musk therefore cannot be too bad.

In terms of a strict logical syllogism, the above is perhaps a flawed conclusion, but I suspect at least arguable in real terms.

A pack of Zionist Jews finally managed to have me expelled from Twitter in 2018, after years of trying. I wonder whether the Twitter employees involved have now lost their jobs under the Elon Musk cull. I hope so.

The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan (conspiracy) has come out into the open over the past several years. Now, you do not have to wonder about it, you just have to look around you (especially if you live in London or another large city or town, or just watch TV dramas, soaps, ads etc).

Civil war in the USA?

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/nov/06/how-close-is-the-us-to-civil-war-barbara-f-walter-stephen-march-christopher-parker

No civil war ever has a single cause. It’s always a multitude of factors that lead to decline and collapse. The current US has several of what the CIA calls “threat multipliers”: environmental crises continue to batter the country, economic inequality is at its highest level since the founding of the country, and demographic change means that the US will be a minority white country within just over two decades. All of these factors tend to contribute to civil unrest wherever they are found in the world.”

Kherson

I find myself wondering why Putin has ordered a full evacuation from the occupied city of Kherson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kherson].

According to Wikipedia, about half of the pre-conflict (i.e. pre-February 2022) population had already fled by the end of May 2022. It is not known either how many have fled in the past 6 months or how many now remain in the city.

It is clear that this battle will be of great importance. I find myself wondering whether Putin intends to use tactical (“battlefield”) nuclear weapons to almost destroy the city if it looks like falling to the forces of the Kiev regime. Those Western “experts” who have pronounced say “no” to that idea; Putin’s people also say no. So maybe “no” is the answer. I do feel a little uneasy about the possibility, though.

Putin has recently referenced, I believe more than once, the American slaughter of very many of the inhabitants of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (perhaps 230,000) in 1945, in the atomic-bomb attacks that pretty much levelled both cities. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_bombings_of_Hiroshima_and_Nagasaki.

Does Putin really mean to destroy Kherson if necessary? We do not know.

[view of Kherson]

If Putin’s intent is to destroy one city so as to say to the Kiev regime “I have just destroyed Kherson. Surrender, or Kiev will be next” (in similar fashion as the Americans did in Japan in 1945), that would be a complete gamechanger, and might even bring in NATO on the “Ukrainian” (Kiev regime) side. In that event, the next world war might be, and probably would be, triggered.

What is inescapable is that the high-grade armament given by the USA, UK etc to the forces of the Kiev regime is having a very great effect on the battlefield. Russian forces are very definitely now on the defensive.

Russia is now, after some hesitation, targeting the electrical power and other infrastructure that keeps the Kiev “failed state” going. I expect that to both continue and intensify.

What a horrible bloody mess (as blogged previously). If only the Russian Army, its General Staff, and the GRU had been fit for purpose at the start, the invasion would probably have ended within days and with complete success, particularly had the Jew Zelensky and his cabal been eliminated by what used to be known in Soviet days as “Olympic Spetsnaz” (which may not even exist now— I do not know).

Now, huge numbers of Ukrainian civilians and their companion animals are suffering and many are dying, together with many Russians, partly because the Russians have made such a shambolic mess of all this, and partly because the West is keeping the war going by vast transfers of arms, ammunition, training, medical and other equipment, and sheer money to the Zelensky regime.

If life gives you lemons…

I happened to see something about the “Rogue Trader”, Nick Leeson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Leeson], who caused a big kefuffle in the mid-1990s, when caught out making unauthorized trades nominally on behalf of Baring’s Bank (which collapsed with massive debts because of him).

Turns out that, after serving over 4 years in Changi Prison, Singapore (2/3 of a nearly-7 year sentence), and having (earlier) written the bestselling Rogue Trader [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_Trader_(book)], he became commercial manager (I had thought, accountant) for an Irish football team, Galway United; then he became CEO of the same club until, some years later, having to resign by reason of the club’s financial difficulties.

I recall having read his book when it came out in 1995 or 1996.

Now, however, like a reformed bank robber advising banks on security, Leeson apparently speaks for fees at seminars, and also after-dinner. Such bookings can be very lucrative (ex-Prime Ministers etc get paid tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands). Leeson is obviously not going to be in that league, and I am unaware of what he does charge, but it might be a few thousand pounds a time, a couple of times a month. Nice work if you can get it.

[Leeson as a young trader]
[Leeson in his fifties, speaking for a fee]

After a brief year or so of being a successful stock market trader in the early 1990s, Leeson was stunningly unsuccessful, famously so, and his later time at the Irish football club was hardly crowned with success, but his 1990s notoriety now provides him with a living, perhaps a good one.

Funny how life works out.

A reader of the blog sent me this:

https://www.thejc.com/news/politics/rishi-reshuffle-the-jewish-movers-and-shakers-in-sunak’s-new-government-44gKgDb3wf5iU7mFlE8r98

The (Jewish) journalist even refers to Jews as “the tribe“.

It occurs to me that the most repulsive MP in that report is not in fact a Jew (though married to a Jewish woman, and with children being brought up as Jewish). No, not Keir Starmer but Robert Jenrick. A complete doormat for Israel and the Jewish lobby.

Indeed. People wanted the migration-invasion “sorted”, as is now said, and they have had enough of big-talking on immigration from “Conservative” ministers, which big talk has led to no or no useful action. Priti Patel the least useful big talker/no action (so far).

Williamson’s job is to shut up, not cause waves, and in return get paid as a Cabinet minister. He has failed even in that.

According to Electoral Calculus, with Reform Party getting maybe 5%, that would result in Labour 471 seats, Conservative 91, LibDem 13, Green 1, SNP 52. https://www.electoralcalculus.co.uk/userpoll.html.

(with “tactical voting” ticked, Con = 30 seats on the same numbers).

If Reform only get 2%, much the same result, but even were Reform (Farage’s latest vehicle) to get 10%, all that would happen would be Reform getting 1 MP, Con 100, Lab 460, LibDem 14. The FPTP voting system is hard to shift.

Indeed, even were Reform to get 15% (higher than UKIP’s result in 2015), Reform would still only get 1 MP! The big change there, though, would be a further Con collapse, to 37 MPs (Lab 521, LibDems 16).

Even on 20%, Reform would get nowhere.

To really arrive, Reform would have to get to about 25% and take votes from Lab as well as Con. As people now say, “a big ask“.

Personally, I do not believe that the Reform Party agenda of “libertarianism” mixed with some less American elements (support for NHS, opposition to more mass immigration etc) will pull in the punters.

There again, Farage stabbed his own Brexit Party supporters in the back in 2019, and (in lay terms) stole the candidates’ money as well! Who would trust him now?

A more social-national party might succeed, if credible: nationalization of strategic utilities, support for private enterprise otherwise, with taxation of large enterprises greatly increased, and support for a thoroughly reformed —but still free at point of use— health service; law and order, support for proper defence; opposition to the Zelensky regime but humanitarian aid to families and animals in Ukraine, and much closer links to Russia.

The post objected to by “@AwfullyMolly”:

Hard to know what to believe.

Probably not all of it. Possibly none of it. Possibly some of it. I await more information.

One aspect that interests me is that, as others have noticed, hardly any tweeters supporting the “Bootstrap Cook” are actually anywhere near “poor”. Many are decidedly affluent, as can be surmised from their Twitter headlines: CEO this, Director that, author, journalist, food writer on a large newspaper, and so on.

There is, as I blogged about a few months ago, a kind of unhealthy, virtue-signalling, nonsense feel about it all. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/.

I take no position on the opinions posted above, but it is clear that many do not accept the “Jack Monroe” story at face value.

Saw this: https://graphtreon.com/creator/jackmonroe [“estimated earnings” from Patreon “[USD] $2,000 to $5,000 a month“]. Say £4,000 a month, in cash. Not bad…

…and that may be only half or a third of her full income.

The extraordinary thing is that quite large numbers of affluent scribblers and others are absolutely vituperative in their self-appointed defence of the “Bootstrap Cook”, as in the example(s) below, in which two employees of the Irish Daily Mail, Tom Doorley (a restaurant critic) and Philip Nolan, jump on someone critical of “Jack Monroe”:

Gavin Williamson

“The strange case of Gavin Williamson” comes up again:

In my blog assessment of Williamson, first published over three years ago in May 2019, I speculated about Williamson’s possible/probable links to freemasonry: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/02/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-gavin-williamson-story/.

There seems no other reason that might explain Williamson’s unmerited career progression to Cabinet minister, or his “knighthood”.

It is true to say that there are many many other incompetent and ridiculous MPs and/or ministers today (examples include Liz Truss and “Boris” Johnson). Those two could not be (?) linked to freemasonry (in the case of Truss, anyway).

Leaving freemasonry aside, the whole system is just broken.

Williamson and his continuing career (indeed, his whole career)? A puzzle.

In the last month or so, the number of mugs subsidizing the lifestyle of “Jack Monroe”, the “Bootstrap Cook” via monthly Patreon donations has fallen from over 800 to about 600, but that is still at least 600 x £3, i.e, £2,400, and some claim that (because of some donors paying out £10 a month or more), she may be getting £6,000 a month or more (plus book royalties, paid appearances etc). I have seen annual income figures of over £100,000 mentioned by tweeters, though I have no idea how accurate they may be.

Some of the unthinking (and almost invariably quite-comfortably-off) supporters of the “Bootstrap Cook” say “so what, she is helping the poor” (in some unspecified way).

How actually is “Bootstrap Cook” “helping the poor“? After all, we can all buy cheap pasta from places such as ASDA, then pour a bit of cheapo tomato sauce over it. Perhaps I myself should try hitting the “donate to me” “Internet cook” thing! After all, Nick Griffin did a bit! He specialized in steak, I think. I could call myself “the Neo-SS Cook” or something “triggering” of that sort…

More seriously, I fail to see how, for example, mixing a tin of sardines with a tin of peaches, adding curry powder, heating the mix, and then calling it something like (my invention) “Southend Fish Curry”, helps anyone (whether poor or rich).

I have to say that my (years ago) quite favourable view of the “Bootstrap Cook” has become less and less favourable over time.

The TV ads in the USA, UK etc, showing the supposedly ideal multikulti family, with black “husband” and white, usually blonde, “wife”, and the mixed-race children, are just less obvious versions of the tweet by that Jew “David Holtz”/”@NeverAgain0666”.

Overall comment on recent political events and on the new Government

For me, one of the major aspects, looking at both the Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak Cabinets is the sheer mediocrity, at best, of the Cabinet ministers appointed by both Truss and Sunak (several appointed by the former have now been reappointed to various offices by the latter).

Here we have a country of 60-70 million inhabitants, a country with a long and distinguished history, and which has produced more for the world, arguably, than most if not all others [including, among hundreds of examples, the Industrial Revolution, trains, hovercraft, jet aircraft, radar, modern sanitation etc], and the best our political system can throw up (so to speak) is this pack of idiots? In the old Private Eye caricature of the newspaper editor Bill Deedes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Deedes], “shome mishtake, shurely?“.

Brexit was badly mishandled. How to save it? First thing is to stop arms, ammunition, and money going from the pockets of British taxpayers to the dictatorial regime of the Jew Zelensky in Kiev.

Second necessary thing is for Britain to withdraw trade sanctions against Russia, restore full trade links and, also very important, cultural links. This will benefit Britain hugely, especially now that the EU, USA, and other states have pledged to intensify trade sanctions. An open field for British commerce, with little competition.

Third thing would be to distance the UK from NATO.

In return, I have no doubt that Russia would supply gas at cost, or even below cost, to the UK; a direct pipeline could be constructed. Britain would thereby stave off both energy shortages and high prices.

The above would not, of itself, solve the problems in dealing with the EU single market, but would mitigate them.

I have discussed previously on the blog that “Jimmy Carr Destroys Art” show, created by Jews at Channel 4, and featuring grinning little monkey and tax evader/avoider Jimmy Carr. Don’t want to waste any time on the bastard today.

Incidentally, though, perhaps I should add that I despise the concept and actuality of Jimmy Carr Destroys Art for wider reasons than simply because one of the works of art destroyed was by Adolf Hitler.

I would not, for example, want to destroy Jewish art, such as the works of Chagall, or even the degenerate contemporary “art” of moneygrubbing “artists” such as Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, who are not Jewish themselves, but their work heavily promoted by the wealthy and well-connected Jew, Charles Saatchi: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Saatchi.

Actually, the German Reich did not, as a rule, destroy what it considered “degenerate” and/or Jewish art; it actually held exhibitions of it, as educative for the people.

Exactly. The Jews at Channel 4 who are behind Jimmy Carr Destroys Art, and the “woke”/”antifa”/Jews/etc who watch it and like it, just want to go “ha ha! That’s one relic of ‘Nazism’ gone!“. It panders to a love of destructiveness, especially on the part of the Jew-Zionist element.

Even those who, like me, commend the basic principle behind National Socialism, would not (I certainly would not) say that Hitler’s youthful paintings are “great art”. They are mostly no more than competent. There is no argument for destroying them, however.

As for Eric Gill, a perverse person, but his art is interesting and also significant for its role in its time period. You could say much the same of many great artists of the recent and further past.

In the end, there will be only one way to eliminate the evil “woke”/”antifa” etc from society.

Justice?

I applaud mercy on the part of sentencing judges, in principle, but not when justice itself is cast aside.

Look at that non-sentence, very typical of today.

It sometimes “seems” that, unless the case is one of murder or terrorism, or tweeting/blogging a few criticisms of the Jewish influence in the UK (eg in the cases of Alison Chabloz or Jez Turner), it is all but impossible to get imprisoned in the UK, no matter what you do to other people.

Reminds me of times past, about 30 years ago.

When I was living intermittently in New Jersey in the early 1990s, I was invited to lunch by American friends of someone I knew at the Bar in London. The three Americans were all partners of a small law firm specializing in shipping and insurance.

When I arrived at their office in downtown Manhattan, near Wall Street, a small group was just leaving, including a bearded Jew wearing a skullcap.

The American lawyers explained that that group had been there in connection with a matter involving insurance, in which matter the people I was visiting were on the other side. The bearded one was said to be a rabbi, who owned commercial property in Brooklyn. I was surprised. I was unaware that Jew rabbis were allowed to own, or did own, business enterprises.

My American hosts laughed and told me that the rabbi was suspected of having had the building in question torched for the insurance. “We call it Jewish lightning!“, they explained.

My religious education was enriched further by another encounter at that office: I met another lawyer who came in and had a cross on his forehead, marked out in ash. I asked what that was, and was told that it was to do with Lent in the Eastern Orthodox church, the lawyer concerned being a Lebanese Christian [https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/article/meaning-cross-ashes-ash-wednesday]. New York City, the melting pot…

I had never seen that (the marking of the forehead), nor even heard of it, previously.

A memorable day also for the interesting lunch that followed, held at an old New York club (I think not now in existence, though), called the New York Drug and Chemical Club, and founded by the leaders of those industries a century or more before, but now situate 50 or more floors up in a skyscraper. Interesting to eat clams and drink Bloody Mary cocktails as the odd helicopter slid by the window (silently), en route to the East River Heliport. A New York experience not had by most visitors to the city.

A year or two later, I hosted the same Americans when they came to London on business. We went to the unique (and now also closed down) Luba’s Bistro at Yeoman’s Row, Knightsbridge, one of my regular haunts back then.

Bring your own wine, beer, or vodka, and enjoy their unchanging 1950s menu, an eclectic mix of Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Georgian, and a bit of French, all consumed in a crowded restaurant where you would be seated near (and I do mean near) the next table of diners, who might be anything from a Church of England canon (accompanied by young blonde wife) who was “an honorary archimandrite of the Eastern Orthodox Church” (overheard by my then girlfriend), to Soviet types who might or might not have been spies of some sort.

Happy days (I suppose).

Of all the ways governments have wasted money in the past, the “panicdemic” nonsense, and particularly the “Test and Trace” nonsense was the most egregious; almost unbelievable.

As previously blogged, if the Triple Lock is abandoned, then the 60+ age group population of voters will probably abandon the Conservative Party en bloc.

A reminder that “Labour” has become as much of a bad joke as the fake “Conservatives”.

As to Eddie Izzard, that creature apparently intends to seek selection as a candidate at the next general election, perhaps for a seat in Sheffield. His prominence as entertainer will probably ensure an easy victory.

If someone, not even from the 1960s or 1970s, but as recently as the 1990s, were suddenly to land in the Britain of 2022, he or she (not “he/she” or “they“) would find much of this country pretty mad, as well as very much in decline in most ways.

The National Trust, like the RNLI and most big charities and institutions, is now riddled with traitors of all sorts in high positions.

Mark Twain had it first and best: “there are lies, damned lies, and statistics“…

Someone can be “competent” to “run the economy”, and increase GDP etc, but if the benefits of that strong economy go almost entirely to the richest 20%, 10%, 5%, 1% (and in the UK it is mainly the 1%), then who can blame the other (as it might be) 99% of the population for saying “screw it! I don’t care!“(?).

I am reminded of the middle-aged man before the Brexit Referendum who was asked by a reporter whether he would change his Leave stance if he were convinced that Brexit would damage the economy. His answer? “I don’t really care…it’s only me and the dog“…

Britain’s defence: big talk, with (regrettably) nothing much behind it

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10901775/Britains-armed-forces-weak-protect-nation-attack-says-former-head-Royal-Navy.html

As we know, the UK has been cutting defence for years, indeed decades. Large numbers of Army, RAF, and Royal Navy bases are now private housing tracts, and the graphic above makes clear how deep the cuts have been.

At the same time prime ministers of the UK have taken to talking big on defence and war. We have seen, for example, how David Cameron-Levita wanted to get rid of Gaddafi (or rather, the Israelis did, and “Scameron” was but one useful idiot there to do it). Disastrous, allowing millions of migrant-invaders to flood through Libya to Europe, apart from anything else. Leave that aside, though, and look at the forces used.

Even in 2011, British forces were actually incapable of launching an invasion of a state even as weak (beyond outward show) as Libya. They would have been unable to transport enough soldiers by air or even by sea, if they had enough front-line soldiers to transport in the first place.

Thus it was that Britain relied on French and Italian help to refuel the small RAF forces deployed, mostly bombers. The French Navy also had greater resources to deploy than the British.

In the end, as we know, rebel Libyan forces, semi-barbaric, overthrew Gaddafi, brutally killed him, and instituted a period of chaotic lawlessness which today, 11 years later, still reigns.

This is not an analysis of the results of the pathetic strategic ineptitude, but of the fact that Britain was weak in 2011; it is far weaker today. Still, it is worth just looking at the results of David Cameron-Levita-Schlumberger’s stupidity (though I am sure that his Israeli relatives and their government were pleased).

Migration-invasion through Libya to Europe; also, human rights abuses inside Libya, dwarfing those perpetrated by Gaddafi.

Environmental disaster too:

Libya was a pioneer state in North Africa in species protection, with the creation in 1975 of the El Kouf protected area. The fall of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime favoured intense poaching: “Before the fall of Gaddafi even hunting rifles were forbidden. But since 2011, poaching has been carried out with weapons of war and sophisticated vehicles in which one can find up to 200 gazelle heads killed by militiamen who hunt to pass the time. We are also witnessing the emergence of hunters with no connection to the tribes that traditionally practice hunting. They shoot everything they find, even during the breeding season. More than 500,000 birds are killed in this way each year, when protected areas have been seized by tribal chiefs who have appropriated them. The animals that used to live there have all disappeared, hunted when they are edible or released when they are not,” explains zoologist Khaled Ettaieb.” [Wikipedia]

What I find risible about Admiral Lord West’s Daily Mail article is that he (perhaps understandably) thinks in terms of fighting a seaborne or other invasion force, as in the days of the Armada, Napoleon, or the wars against Germany in the 20th Century, or conflicts such as that of the Falklands Campaign in which he himself served (the ship he commanded was sunk under him, he being the last to abandon the vessel). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_West,_Baron_West_of_Spithead.

For one thing, Britain now faces no threat of the traditional kind from any quarter. The expansionist Soviet Union ground to a halt in the 1980s, and was replaced in the 1990s by the present Russian Federation, which has no intention of occupying Central and Western Europe; moreover, it no longer has any ideology (akin to the old Marxism-Leninism) that might underpin such an intention or wish.

Likewise, I doubt that any serious person imagines that China has any intention of invading Western Europe, let alone the UK. Why would it? Anyway, remember the most famous words of Sun Tzu: “to win without war is the highest excellence” [Sun Tzu, The Art of War: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Art_of_War and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Tzu.

When we look at Western Europe, at the UK, do we see Chinese battle fleets or air fleets approaching? No, but we do see not only Chinese manufactured goods everywhere, but actual Chinese people everywhere. That process of gradual and peaceful colonization has increased in flow in recent years. “Boris-idiot” has even invited potentially millions of Hong Kong Chinese to settle in the UK, to add to the very large numbers already here.

Whatever may be said about all that, the fact is that the UK armed forces could not stop such migration-invasion. Au contraire, the modest Royal Navy forces available in the English Channel are actually helping the multikulti “dinghy people” or “RIB people” of many origins to cross over, land illegally, and then claim (usually bogus) “asylum” here.

The only country which has any desire to occupy Western Europe has, in effect, already done so. The USA has bases and personnel all over Europe, including the UK, and treats the UK more or less as a colony. However, Admiral Lord West’s suggested larger armed forces would be expected to work with those American occupation forces, not against them. Take another look at the graphic; the huge military power available to the USA’s leaders is inescapable.

Yet we see Boris-idiot vicariously fighting Russia by supplying arms and ammunition to the regime of the Jew Zelensky in Kiev. We see intellectually-challenged MPs such as Johnny Mercer crowing “bring it on” (war with Russia). Same with Ben Wallace, the current Defence Secretary. Both ex-officers, though not senior ones.

Here is another nitwit, the former Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gavin_Williamson#Defence_Secretary_(2017%E2%80%932019).

My assessment of Williamson, from 2019: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/02/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-gavin-williamson-story/.

Williamson wanted both to cut defence spending and to challenge both Russia and China!

No, Lord West, the present and future battle for Britain lies within our own society, and will not be won (or lost) by the number of soldiers, battleships, or bombers that “we”, as a state, may possess.

Starmer is just a Jew-lobby puppet, little more. Better-put, a System puppet, which is pretty much (not exactly) the same thing. The System is suffused with both Zionism and freemasonry.

…except that the perpetrator then walked off, to repeat his crime tomorrow, or the day after…

Worth reading the whole thread.

There are two possibilities for the future of the UK, assuming that there is still a country and a population left at all: the first would be the mixed-race, decadent, hopeless swamp envisaged as “ideal” by Coudenhove-Kalergi , the other possibility to be part of a germinal European super-race, which can be the foundation for a quantum leap in evolution.

Incidentally, the Jewish influence on Wikipedia is very obvious when you look at a topic such as the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalergi_Plan. No objectivity.

In fact, re. the reality or otherwise of the Plan, you only have to look at what is happening in the world, and especially in Europe, to see the truth.

I was looking at the TV earlier. Almost every ad had a black man and a white woman, with (usually) mixed-race children. Not (yet) reflective of reality in the UK, but an attempt to normalize mixed-race families, mixed-race children. Aimed not at people of my age (65) but at —mainly— children, so that they grow up brainwashed into believing that a mixed-race society is not only worthwhile but the norm.

On this day a year ago

Birmingham Erdington by-election

I had completely forgotten about the by-election at Birmingham Erdington, occasioned by the unexpected death of the sitting MP, Jack Dromey [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Dromey] from sudden heart failure.

Birmingham Erdington has been a fairly safe Labour seat since 1945. In every election since then, Labour has won, with the Conservative Party in second place: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham_Erdington_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections.

Even in the 1979 General Election that swept Margaret Thatcher to power, Labour held on in the constituency by a couple of points (46% to the Conservative’s 44.5%).

Labour’s highest point was in 1945 (60.8%), but it scored 58.8% in the Tony Blair “landslide” of 1997. Labour did almost as well (58%) in 2017, at a time when Jeremy Corbyn was Labour leader.

Labour’s vote share in 2019 fell back to 50.3%, and in the recent by-election rose to 55.5%.

The Conservative Party peaked, scoring 68.1%, in 1931, but fell back, apparently terminally, after Labour won the seat in 1945. The lowest point was reached in 2005 (22.8%). Since then, the Conservative vote has been in the 30-40% range (38.4% in 2017, 40.1% in 2019, and 36.3% in this by-election).

The by-election attracted 12 candidates, the highest number in the history of the constituency. but apart from the two main System parties, none retained the deposit. The Trade Union and Socialist Coalition [TUSC] topped the list at 2.1%.

Interesting to see the Greens and LibDems doing badly: Greens 1.4%, their worst result in the constituency since they first stood, in 2015.

The LibDems have pegged out, at least in this constituency. In the 2010 days of Cleggmania, they scored 16.2%. By 2015, after the Con Coalition, the same LibDem candidate could only manage 2.8%. That fell back further to 2% in 2017, recovered slightly to 3.7% in 2019, but fell again, disastrously, to a mere 1% in this by-election.

There were no social-national candidates, though the pseudo-nationalist “alt-Right” set-up, Reform UK (the reincarnation of Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party), achieved 1.7% (4th place).

Overall, my view is that the by-election shows a lack of enthusiasm on the part of the electorate. The turnout was pitiful, a mere 27% (nearly half of that in 2019, and less than half of the 2017 turnout). Only just over a quarter of those eligible bothered to vote.

The Labour vote-share rose slightly, the Conservatives’ fell back slightly. The real winner was apathy or, perhaps, disgusted cold-shouldering of a fake “democracy”.

Incidentally (?), demographics may account for part of the result, in that the new MP is a West Indian, a Labour councillor and former NHS nurse, aged somewhere in her early sixties, who has called for a black uprising in the UK:

Near the end of the 2022 by election campaign, remarks made by Hamilton in 2015 were uncovered by GB News where she suggested she was torn between a democratic vote and an uprising to enable black people to get what “we really deserve in this country”.[4] The comments led to calls from some Conservative MPs for her to be suspended by the Labour Party, who responded saying the remarks were taken out of context.[5]” [Wikipedia].

As I have repeatedly blogged, the Labour Party core vote is now the “blacks and browns” and/or the public service workers. That is now being reflected, increasingly, in Labour Party MPs too. Look at this one, a West Indian woman who is or was an NHS nurse.

In fact, the new MP, though increasingly typical of the Labour Party, is not typical of the constituency: “The constituency is predominantly white working class and very deprived.” [Wikipedia].

I do not see this result as betokening a Labour Party revival under Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer. Unimpressive.

[Paulette Hamilton, the new MP for Birmingham Erdington]

Ukraine

As far as can be gleaned from the msm, Russia’s glacial offensive is finally starting to take control of some major locations, such as the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, which supplies a quarter of the electricity in Ukraine.

Slowly, the odds are moving in Russia’s favour. Cities are starting to be taken, albeit at a terrible cost in suffering and damage; strategic targets such as power plants are being captured. Food has pretty much run out in those cities east of the Dnieper still controlled by the Kiev regime.

I had not expected the Zelensky regime to last this long. However, the taking of Kiev, which has been delayed (perhaps deliberately, so that many of its inhabitants can flee, which must help the Russian side of this conflict), will probably soon happen. When it does, Zelensky and his cabal will flee, or be captured (or killed).

If Zelensky et al flee to Lvov, it raises the question (noted by me in past weeks) of whether Putin will try to take over the western two thirds of Ukraine as well. I had assumed not, thinking that any Lvov government would be weak, economically strapped, and unable to cause Putin many problems, even if recognized by the Western allies as the “legitimate” government of the whole of Ukraine de jure, even if a puppet government based in Kiev were to rule a third, perhaps nearly a half, of Ukraine, de facto.

Now, I am not so sure. Any Lvov government headed by Zelensky or his group would now be supplied with advanced weaponry by the Western allies. There would be a long and vulnerable front splitting Ukraine. The Lvov regime forces would be more motivated than those of the Russian occupation in the east.

On those premises, Putin might eventually decide to go for broke, and try to occupy, or at least devastate, the rest of Ukraine. He may calculate that he has little to lose. After all, Russia’s reputation in the world has (via the biased reportage of the Western msm, so be it) already now been trashed, and Russia’s stock, both metaphorically and literally, could scarcely fall any lower.

Historical note

[William] Douglas-Home was assigned to the 7th Battalion of the Buffs, which was converted to tanks as the 141st Regiment, Royal Armoured Corps. In the Normandy campaign, the 141st Regiment was assigned to I Corps (a British formation) within the First Canadian Army. In August, First Canadian Army was directed to mop up the German forces cut off and trapped in various seaside ports in Normandy and Pas de Calais. In the first week of September 1944, the Allies moved against the port of Le Havre. A German garrison under Colonel Hermann-Eberhard Wildermuth was dug in on the hill overlooking the city. Wildermuth had been ordered by Hitler to defend Fortress Le Havre to the last man, and not to surrender.

When the Allied forces invested the city in advance of the planned aerial bombardment and subsequent assault, Wildermuth asked the British commander if the French civilians could be evacuated from the city, but that request was refused. Lieutenant (acting Captain) Douglas-Home was near Le Havre, awaiting the completion of the aerial bombardment. He was to serve as a liaison officer in Operation Astonia, the Allied attack on Le Havre. On the second day after the aerial bombardment had started, he learned of the German request to evacuate the civilians and the Allied refusal. The consequences of the bombardment were apparent to the waiting Allied forces and Douglas-Home refused to participate in the attack. He gave two reasons:

The unconditional surrender policy, which he thought compelled the enemy to fight to the end.
The refusal of civilian evacuation was morally unacceptable to him.
which created a moral obligation for Douglas-Home and he declined to participate.
..

The aerial bombardment of Le Havre lasted four nights, killed over 2,000 French civilians, 19 German soldiers and levelled the city. The Germans surrendered after two-days’ fighting and I Corps moved on to Boulogne, which was also subjected to a heavy aerial bombardment. At that time Douglas-Home, who had been placed under supervision (he did not consider himself at that time to have been “arrested”) wrote to the Maidenhead Advertiser and the publication of his letter in the newspaper prompted his formal arrest and detention.

Douglas-Home was charged at a Field General Court Martial held on 4 October 1944 that, when on active service, he disobeyed a lawful command given by his superior officer (contrary to Section 9 (2) of the Army Act 1881). He conducted his own defence. Regrettably neither the Field Court Martial nor Douglas-Home had a copy of the new edition of the Manual of Military Law, which had been prepared and published in April 1944 but not distributed to the troops in Normandy. Prior to April 1944 a British soldier accused of refusing to obey an order had no defence available that the order was illegal. Even had that been brought to the Court-Martial’s attention, the grounds of objection by Douglas-Home for refusing to obey Colonel Waddell’s order were rejected as he had to admit that the order, to act as a liaison officer, was not illegal. His argument, that he was being required to take part in an event which was morally indefensible, fell on deaf ears. He was convicted, and sentenced to be cashiered and to serve one year’s imprisonment with hard labour. The proceedings lasted two hours”.”

[Wikipedia]

Douglas-Home, later a playwright, was also the younger brother of the British Prime Minister of the early 1960s, Alec Douglas-Home.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Douglas_Home.

So, there we have it. British invaders killed 2,000 French civilians in Le Havre (and another 3,000 in Caen, and many elsewhere). That is without even counting the perhaps 800,000 German civilians killed in 1939-45 by Allied bombing alone.

As for the Americans, both in WW2 and up to the present time, we need not even go there…

The Russian invaders of Ukraine, if sinners, are not the only sinners.

Yet another “death from suspected heart attack” of someone not old, and in apparent good health. There seems to be an absolute epidemic (?) of such deaths. I wonder whether this cricketer, like most of those reported on, was “vaccinated”, “boosted” etc? Odds-on he was.

Strange…I do not recall Brown saying anything like that when NATO bombed Belgrade, or attacked a number of countries in the Middle East and North Africa…

Looks like he has a nice house for himself and his weird wife. Pity that he impoverished so many British people.

Nick Griffin seems to suffer from the same ideological confusion, if that is indeed why he seems to be singing the same song.

The city in question has been called “Kiev” for centuries. Not “Kyiv” or, as the BBC and Sky now seem to think is correct, “Keeev“.

I am rather outside the exact debate, on the personal level, having not eaten meat since the age of 21 or so (1978), though I still occasionally had chicken, quail etc until about 2005, as well as products such as foie gras.

A debate which should engage all those still buying and eating meat.

Leaving partisan politics aside, one has to respect those who sacrifice their time, effort, and sometimes lives, to help animals, particularly those suffering because of wars or conflicts in the human sphere.

[invasion of Ukraine: apparent state of play as of yesterday, 3 March 2022]

As previously blogged, Russia has to control the Black Sea littoral. That must put the focus on Odessa. In fact, about 25%-30% of the population there is Russian, though I daresay that they will be keeping their heads down.

At the same time, the most important Russian objective, psychologically, must be Kiev, even if the Zelensky regime flees to Lvov.

Hitler’s biggest mistake or failure on the Eastern Front in the Second World War was to try to take Moscow, Leningrad, and the Ukraine, simultaneously, in 1941. The better idea would have been first of all to decapitate the Soviet regime by an all-out drive on Moscow.

In 1941, the German advance came within a relatively few miles of Moscow. In fact, the point of furthest advance, at Khimki, is now Moscow outer suburbia.

I recall, on my first visit there, in 1993, being astonished at passing the “tank trap” memorial now there, en route from the old Sheremetyevo airport into Moscow, and seeing how close it was to the city. I think that my driver arrived at or near the Kremlin only about 20 minutes after we passed that memorial.

Moscow in 1941 was in a state of panic for days, as the Germans advanced. High-ranking officials fled with their families. Many have said that, had the Germans been able to land even a modest parachute force in those days, the Soviet regime would have crumbled. It was never to be.

The Russians must take Kiev while the preponderance of military force is on their side. They will then be able to link up with forces near Dnipro (former Dnepropetrovsk) along the river Dnieper. If they can do that, then all of Ukraine east of the Dnieper will fall.

Still think that “lockdowns”, “furlough payments”, “vaccine rollouts”, £40 billion wasted on “Test and Trace” (and the rest of the “Covid” madness) all come for free? Think again.

The “enrichment” brought by “diversity”

Even the apparently most humble creatures of the Earth are incredible, and worthy of respect.

…and even if the entire present government were to be replaced by a Labour-label one, nothing much would be changed, except possibly for the worse, under Keir Starmer’s Friends of Israel cabal.

The Jew-Zionists and their “useful idiots” would love to get rid of The Merchant of Venice, of course, because the caricature is far too accurate.

I blogged about the inexplicable rise of Gavin Williamson nearly three years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/02/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-gavin-williamson-story/.

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).

Short foray

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.

The toytown police state at work

https://www.advertiserandtimes.co.uk/news/police-called-to-anti-covid-vaccination-protest-at-ringwood-9235507/

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.

I blogged about Macron a few years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/09/on-recent-events-in-france/.

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.

To me, it seems highly unlikely that a secret organization as notoriously efficient and skilled as MOSSAD would employ persons likely to behave in such a fashion. Still, you never know how people will react in sudden and unexpected situations (though, here, the contention is that the attack was not unexpected).

A fact that the “refugees welcome” idiots prefer not to confront.

Not only hypocrites but pretty silly people. We are ruled by idiots.

The Anglophone West is becoming a kind of dystopian zoo; especially in the world of mass media and supposed “celebrity” etc. Hollywood is the centre for much of that. Who runs Hollywood? That’s right…

Patton may, however, have been unaware of the transnational conspiracy that flew above the (on some levels, real) disagreement between “capitalist” West and “socialist” or “state capitalist” East; that “disagreement” became the Cold War after 1945, but trade and banking etc still carried on between East and West, as it had done since the Soviet Union was established. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_S._Patton

Looks as though Patton gradually woke up, though: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=George_S._Patton&action=edit&section=4#Antisemitic_views

Patton was killed, according to the official version, in a road crash, though later books and films have speculated that his death was an assassination disguised as a car crash (cf. the death of Princess Diana).

Patton seems to have been a strange mixture of erudition and ignorance (his views about Russians were ludicrously inaccurate), intelligence, pigheadedness, and a real but almost vulgarly-accentuated physical courage.

“Journalists” (TV and radio talking heads, and newspaper scribblers) know what not to ask these days…

Those who need to take note of those sentiments include the UK police, Bar, and judiciary.

My assessment of Gavin Williamson, from over two years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/02/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-gavin-williamson-story/.

Williamson, Buckland, and Jenrick: deadheads all. As far as that little pissant Jenrick is concerned, he is almost a clone of Keir Starmer in some ways: married to a Jewish woman lawyer, and their children being brought up as Jewish.

Jenrick is completely tied up with Jewish speculators of various kinds, especially in the area of property and land speculation.

It will be recalled that it was Jenrick who was instrumental in denying Westminster Council its right to refuse the placing of a hugely ugly Jew-Zionist “holocaust” visitor attraction on the pleasant little park next to the Palace of Westminster; even some Zionist Jews opposed it for various reasons. Jenrick was also the one responsible for approving the planning application.

Rise above the noisy din and nonsense to see the big picture— a conspiratorial attempt to create a biosecurity police state across the Western world by 2022, the first year of the next 33-year historical cycle.

I have no idea who that monkey is, but he looks evil.

Jeremy Vine is a typical mediocre msm drone. Look at his background: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Vine. Knows the right people, makes the right noises, so gets hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, from BBC, as well as private work alongside…

Someone is not asleep. As I have blogged previously, one aspect of the past 18 months of socio-political madness is that of an experiment in mass psychological compliance. It has worked so well that many scared rabbits want the facemask nonsense to continue indefinitely, and many also wear these useless appendages while riding bicycles, walking on windy clifftops, or riding in their own cars (even when alone!).

I have myself seen all of the above behaviours and more in the district where I live (and which has in fact had a very low rate of —supposed, alleged— death “from”—i.e. with— “the virus”).

Below: what the NWO/ZOG System ministers and advisers in the UK were saying last year, until they “got the memo” from the hidden ruling circles of the West, and changed the message…

Tweets from the “@FromLondonArea” loony are worth reading, in order to understand how deep is the pathology that has taken hold of many of the facemask zealots and general “virus” obsessives. Example? See below:

She —evidently— has not looked into any mirrors recently…(neither can she spell). Other examples from her would be superfluous here, but look at her tweets. Somewhere between disturbing and unintentionally hilarious.

On Twitter there are many clinically-diagnosed mental health cases, quite a few of whom also often accuse the sane of being insane…

One of the most absurd recent UK Government actions (of many) was when Gavin Williamson (then Secretary of State for Defence, now —equally hilariously— Education Secretary), threatened to send a warship to the South China Sea to indicate Her Majesty’s Government’s displeasure about Hong Kong. One warship! Williamson must think that he is in the time of Lord Palmerston (Palmerston threatened Greece that way in 1850, about the treatment in Greece of a Jew called Don Pacifico, who claimed to hold British citizenship). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Pacifico; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don_Pacifico_affair

China has 500-1,000 ships (etc) in its navy! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/People%27s_Liberation_Army_Navy. Not to mention about 600 naval aircraft!

As for (non-European) Home Secretary, Priti Patel, she makes much noise about illegal immigration, does nothing about it (as can be seen in the hundreds crossing the Channel, hundreds every day) and keeps very quiet about the thousands entering otherwise, many “legally” (family members”, “fiancees”, supposed wives or husbands, “students”, rich “investors” etc). Neither does she seem to have a problem with part-Jew chancer “Boris” inviting up to SIX MILLION (that number again!) Hong Kong Chinese to come here.

A couple of years ago, I blogged an assessment of the then-new Boris Johnson Cabinet: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/07/25/the-boris-johnson-cabinet/.

In that article, I noted the number of non-English and (at root) non-British persons in the Boris Johnson Cabinet, starting with “Boris” himself (part-Jew, part-Levantine, born in USA, brought up largely in USA and Belgium).

That aspect of the present government has become even more marked: Chancellor—Rishi Sunak (Indian); Home Secretary— Priti Patel (East African Indian origin); Transport Secretary— Grant Shapps (Jew); Health Secretary— Sajid Javid (Pakistani origin); Foreign Secretary— Dominic Raab (half-Jew); Climate Change— Alok Sharma (Indian); Business Secretary— Kwasi Kwarteng (African). 8 out of 23, but including most of the top jobs, including all of the traditional “Great Offices of State” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Offices_of_State].

Overt protest mostly banned, paper publishing mostly banned, online opinion or protest banned (increasingly). What does that leave, people of England? You tell me.

Effectively the end of any real right to protest in public.

The Tibetans and Chinese used to bang on pots and pans to scare away bad spirits, I believe.

I agree with Hitchens. I too have travelled more widely than the average, perhaps more widely than most, and have seen quite a bit of every continent (except Antarctica and South America), including some experiences that most people never have.

Now? I have very little wish to travel overseas these days. There are a few cities that I might find pleasant or interesting, and to which I have never been: St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Oulu, Lugano, Baden Baden, Budapest. Not desperate.
