Saturday quiz

Well, this week, political journalist John Rentoul scored the same as me: 7/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 3, and 7 and, if truth be known, my correct answer to question 4 was an educated guess.

In fact, the NWO/ZOG agenda is now accelerating, now that we are in 2022, the primary year of the 33 year-cycle ending when the next such year starts in 2055.

Already, banks in the UK have introduced restrictions on transfers of cash and other payments, and note a range of other transactions. It’s coming. Slow enfoldment.

2022, the most significant year since 1989. Previous such significant years were 1956 and 1923.

Human beings really are amazingly ingenious.

An octopus has quite high intelligence and sentience. I rarely buy seafood salad with octopus rings now for that reason.

I have wondered why Jews, especially, are and have been among the most fanatical for the “vaccines” and other “measures”, including the facemask nonsense. You see tweets from them claiming that they have, have had, or are afraid of getting “Covid”, as well as tweets (even now) fervently urging compulsory mask-wearing etc.

I think that this can all be traced back to an ingrained wish to be seen as the perennial “victim”, even when that is extremely implausible.

1945 was a setback, but not the complete defeat that it seemed at the time. The Reich was crushed, but the essence of National Socialism has survived in other forms, other places. It is still possible to create the basis for the necessary quantum leap in human evolution.

Good grief.

Stuchbery used to call himself “historian“, but was only ever one in the manner of someone who travels around (Germany, mainly), copies tourist information he sees here and there, then collates it into tweets.

Nothing wrong about that, in itself; in fact I have always said that I enjoy his tweets on mediaeval and Renaissance history (he is usually wrong about history after about 1880), but he is no historian.

My 2019 blog post about Stuchbery: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/.

Bolton forgot to add that many of the younger police “officers” of today (meaning those under 40), brainwashed at school thanks to Jew-pumped-out “holocaust” “education”, are easily manipulated by the Jew-Zionist element into taking seriously false and malicious complaints made by Jews about (usually) non-Jews. A couple of my own experiences from the past 5 years or so: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

Exactly. I read the local newspapers online, the ones for coastal Hampshire and Dorset. The court reports are interesting inasmuch that, even for me, a one-time barrister (albeit far more civil and commercial etc than criminal), the sentences often surprise by their leniency.

I am far from being a “hanger and flogger”, and I favour clemency where possible, perhaps even too much, but I now read of people who have committed crimes of considerable violence and brutality, not to mention egregious theft, being effectively “let off”.

You have to work quite hard to get imprisoned in the UK these days (unless the Jews say that you have been rude about them).

Example? A few years ago, I heard tell of a man, an accountant aged in his 40s, who had a paid job, I think part-time, with a really worthwhile hospice charity not far from where I myself live (about 2-3 miles away). That person stole (embezzled) £40,000 from the charity.

In court, the embezzler must have had Counsel very good at mitigation because, on the premises that the defendant’s parents had stumped up the £40,000 to compensate the hospice, the defendant got off with a suspended sentence, despite the egregious breach of trust, despite also the fact that he was only caught by chance or Fate, and despite the fact that he had initially tried to blame more junior staff.

No. Far too lenient.

For once I agree with that stupid woman. GPs, at least many, may be overpaid, and those that want an easier life may find it congenial to drop by the surgery a couple of days a week and still pick up a gross pay of about £60,000 in many cases.

Incidentally, I have no animus against my own GP, a very polite person whom I have not actually seen face to face for years, but with whom I am reasonably satisfied, and who monitors me via routine blood tests etc, and sends the odd letter.

Diary Blog, 9 January 2022, including a few more thoughts about Labour Party chances, and about Islington North

On this day a year ago

Jewish National Fund UK chair: ‘Jews have no future in England

In an interview with the Jerusalem Post earlier this month, Jewish National Fund UK chair Samuel Hayek warned British Jews may “feel more comfortable” after the defeat of Jeremy Corbyn but “the underlying issues have not gone away”.

In addition to suggesting British Jews should consider emigration, he said: “Let’s assume that Corbyn would have become prime minister. We all know our lives would have changed without recognition. We cannot even understand it fully.”

“Is it easy to sell their businesses?” he asked. “Could they do it quickly? Where would they go? To South Africa, the United States, Canada – hopefully, Israel.”

A Jew like Giles Coren can suggest that someone (Mira bar-Hillel, a Jewish, but anti-Zionist, journalist) who is both named, and known to Coren, be killed by Jew Zionists, but will the police take any interest? No, of course not; yet if you, as an English person, say “boo” not even to a Jew but about him (or her, or it), the skies will fall in as the police —or even, maybe, their “anti-terror command”— play at being a poundland KGB.

Labour Party

Interesting, and typical of many tweets seen this morning. Looks as if Keir Starmer’s Jewish-lobby “Labour” Party (Rachel Reeves, like Starmer and all his Shadow Cabinet, being a fervent member of Labour Friends of Israel) is not convincing many. I concede that Twitter is very unrepresentative, but offline I have not met an openly Labour supporter or voter for about 7 years.

That is one reason why I took a very early look, a few days ago, at the Erdington by-election. That looks very much like it is going to be a straight Labour-Conservative fight, in a situation where both main System parties have lost public confidence. The question is, which party is hated and/or despised the most?

In recent by-elections, the Conservative Party has done badly, losing two hitherto safe Con seats, but to the LibDems as relatively uncontroversial third party, not to Labour. Both Chesham and Amersham, and North Shropshire, were considered safe Con seats. Birmingham Erdington has been a safe Labour seat since the 1930s (with a near-upset in 1983).

The Conservative Party vote-share fell hugely in the two by-elections mentioned; it also fell at the 2021 Batley and Spen by-election (won narrowly by Labour), and that at Old Sidcup and Bexley (won easily by the Conservatives).

However, in all those by-elections except Old Bexley, the Labour vote also fell, and by a considerable amount. The Labour percentage vote-shares were: Batley and Spen 35.3%; Old Bexley and Sidcup 30.9%; North Shropshire 9.7%; Chesham and Amersham 1.6%.

Another, earlier, 2021 by-election, was that held at Hartlepool, in March 2021. There, in a seat always Labour since its establishment in 1974 (and usually also in the predecessor constituency), and where Labour candidates almost always scored over 50% (Peter Mandelson 60.7% in 1997), Labour’s losing (to Conservatives) 2021 by-election vote-share was only 28.7%.

None of Labour’s 2021 by-election results can be plausibly laid at the door of the departed Jeremy Corbyn.

Out of those 5 by-elections, only one success (Batley and Spen) and only one increase in vote-share (Old Bexley and Sidcup). To me, the results show that Labour is being seen as not only unpopular but as actually irrelevant. As I have noted before, the Keir Starmer “pitch” to the public is, more or less, “we support what the Government is doing, on the whole, but it should be doing it better, and while down on one knee and wearing a facemask“. Not very inspiring.

The odds must be that the Birmingham Erdington by-election will go Labour’s way, but I am unsure about that. Until the past few weeks, I should have said that the Cons were only a couple of points behind Lab in the constituency. Now? Hard to say. This may be a battle between two blocs of apathy…

Islington North: more Labour Party news

A high-profile Labour woman who lost her seat ‘thanks to Jeremy Corbyn‘ should be the candidate to end his Commons career, it was suggested last night.

Party insiders say that one of several female MPs who lost in the disastrous 2019 election would be Labour’s best choice to stand against the former leader in his North London stronghold, Islington North.

Mr Corbyn is currently barred from standing as the Labour candidate in the next General Election because of a bitter antisemitism row with Sir Keir Starmer.” [Mail on Sunday]

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10382919/Labour-woman-lines-Jeremy-Corbyn-London-stronghold-Islington-North.html

I think that one can guess what (((type))) of individual thought up that bitter and vindictive “pound of flesh” idea…

Mary Creagh was one of the most active and fervent pro-Israel drones in the Commons; Ruth Smeeth, half-Jewish and descended on one side from East London gangsters, was exposed by Wikileaks as listed as a “to be strictly protected” secret informant by the U.S. Embassy in London. In effect, an agent or spy, to put it one way. It is not known (by me) whether she was paid for that. Before becoming an MP, she was also employed by the Israeli propaganda operation known as BICOM.

Both women were or are members of Labour Friends of Israel. Both were found well-paid jobs heading non-governmental orgs after the electors of their constituencies disposed of them.

As to what might well happen if one of those two is selected by the Jewish-lobby “Labour” Party now headed by Keir Starmer to contest Islington North, that might be interesting.

Islington North is a very solid Labour stronghold. The last election there won by the Conservative Party was in 1935. No Labour Party candidate since 1931 has recorded a vote-share below 40%.

Corbyn has been MP for Islington North since 1983, and his peak vote-share of 73% (in 2017) exceeded even that which he achieved in 1997 (69.3%) and that of the winning Labour candidate in 1945 (67.4%). In 2019, his vote was at 64.3%. Only when he was first elected in 1983 did his vote-share dip below 50% (40.4%), and that was because the Social Democratic Party stood, and garnered a vote of 22.4% (Con 25.3%).

How much of that solid Labour voting is for Labour label, and how much for Corbyn? We have seen many past examples of former Labour MPs standing as independent or small-party candidates, only to be swept away. No doubt Starmer and “Labour Friends of Israel” hope that that will happen in this case. I doubt it.

This situation is, as far as I know, unprecedented. Former Labour ministers have stood against Labour in the past (notably in the SDP days), and with mixed but generally poor results. Never, however, has a former Labour Party leader stood for election in a constituency, against an official Labour Party candidate.

Corbyn is extremely well-known, to say the least, both in the country generally (since 2015) and in the constituency (since 1983; 38 years…).

I should think that, in such unique circumstances, Corbyn would have every chance if he stood as Independent, or Independent Labour. I doubt that, with his background, he would start a new party.

The Conservative Party vote-share in the constituency peaked at 66.07% in 1931; since then, there has been an uneven but gradual decline overall. In the 1980s and 1990s, mostly in the 20%-30% range, and lower since then: the elections 1997-2019 show 12.9%, 10.8%, 11.9%, 14.2%, 17.2%, 12.5%, and finally 10.2%.

See the direction of travel below:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islington_North_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Election_results

There is every chance that the Conservative vote will slip below 10% —maybe even below 5%— next time. That means that the contest will be between Corbyn (if he stands) and whoever Labour selects to oppose him. Corbyn may well be the front-runner.

As to the LibDems, their vote peaked at 29.9% in 2005, and in the last few elections has been in the 10%-20% range (15.6% in 2019). It may be that they could mount something of a challenge in a 4-horse race. If Con votes joined with LibDem votes, on 2019 figures, that might add up to 25% or so, but it seems unlikely even then, that they could do better than a second place.

A situation to watch.

Mary Creagh

I just saw a comment by one of Mary Creagh’s former Wakefield constituents:

Mary Creagh was our mp, unfortunately. She is the most arrogant, self-important, waste of space. She literally did nothihng for the Wakefield area. Her attitude is appalling, she just could not be bothered with the area. Goodness knows why people voted for her. Islington is welcome to her. Strange isn’t it that she is still blaming someone else for her loss. She lost because she asserted remain when our area had voted leave and still the penny has not dropped for her. Her sense of entltlement is staggering. Watch out Islington!

Mary Creagh had her eyes on things far more important to her than the poor people of Wakefield, namely the interests of Israel and the Jewish lobby, followed by the pro-EU Remain campaign. Her own career and money too, of course…

Seeing TV reportage of Mary Creagh crying in anger and frustration, after the voters of Wakefield binned her, was stellar.

Addendum: saw this comment about Islington Labour voters: “Young professionals who have never lived through a Labour government. Could they cope through another Winter of Discontent with constant strikes, sitting my candlelight with no heating and rubbish piled up in the street?

The “”Winter of Discontent” myth has become as ingrained as the old “holo (you know what)” farrago! I was in the UK (aged 22) during the said winter. There were strikes in some parts of the economy, yes, for a few weeks in some cases. Few people had their electricity supply interrupted; same with heating. As for rubbish piling up, yes, but only in some areas, and for a few weeks. The whole thing was short in duration and limited in effect(s). It was not the Siege of Leningrad. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winter_of_Discontent.

The “Winter of Discontent” has become one of those things that many think is so, but is only partly so, a bit like the aforesaid “holo” stuff and various other situations (eg that the UK only had basic foodstuffs until about 20 years ago, or that there were large numbers of blacks living in the UK in the 1960s or even 1950s.

You often see people moaning also about how terrible the whole of the 1970s were, with light and heat cut off because of strikes, and similar “facts”. In fact, the “three day week” and the power cuts affected mainly businesses, lasted weeks not months (in late 1973) and few domestic users were even affected. A few, for short periods. Yet you see people, even those who were there at the time spinning nonsense in newspaper comments sections, or on Twitter, about how they spent much of the 1970s without heat, light, or even food!

It does make me wonder about the fallibility of human memory.

“Doctor”? Hardy ha ha…The law should be clarified as to who is entitled to use the designation and who should not (e.g. someone whose doctorate is merely a Ph.D. based on a study of a strike in a match factory in 1888…).

Rod Liddle strikes me (though I have never met him) as a remarkably unpleasant person, with some of whose views (not re. the “panicdemic”, obviously) I agree, from time to time. Why anyone should think his views on medicine in any way authoritative, I have no idea; Liddle’s mature-student degree was in Social Psychology: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rod_Liddle.

Sometimes, non-violent resistance can work, if the regime opposed is not completely brutal and/or deranged; and if the time is right. It worked in the Baltic republics, the DDR and other Soviet satellites in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and indeed in the Russian core of the Soviet Union in the same period, but it would never have worked in, say, 1970s Cambodia.

Coronavirus nation

The contrived “virus” situation has not only exposed how empty of content our society now is, and its institutions especially (as I blogged months ago) but also has led to where we are now, a kind of shadow society. The virus apparently makes many lose their senses of taste and smell, and that is, metaphorically, what has happened socially and politically. Look at the House of Commons.

We have a government of clowns who, under previously normal conditions, would not even have been taken seriously by their own party, let alone the public. They have no credibility, no real ideology or even ideas. They are (as again blogged about many times) led by a part-Jew public entertainer whose jokes are now falling very flat.

The UK has a binary political system, which means, inter alia, that if the official Opposition is, like the Government, just a collective puppet of the Jewish lobby, there is no real opposition to Government policy and behaviour.

The Labour Party simply “opposes” Boris-idiot by saying “we agree with most of what you do, but you should do more of the same, and harder, and should have done it earlier; and borrowed more money to soften the blows...”

Yes, we are always hearing how small the difference is between the DNA of, say, a Northern European and the DNA of a black African. A small fraction of 1%. But it is that small difference that means everything. “In your nothing, I hope to find my everything” [Goethe, Faust]. Some primates, such as chimpanzees, have 96% of the same DNA as a human being, some are even said to have 98% or 99%. Even a banana has 60% of “our” DNA, it seems.

Indeed. The oddest thing is that, in the UK and elsewhere (eg USA), public horror (arguably exaggerated) re. underage sex activity goes together with the actual encouragement of such activity in the West since the 1960s. Hollywood, “British” TV, whatever. The msm generally. There are secret groups, embedded in the political and msm milieux, that are constantly pushing to expand the boundaries of what is acceptable to the public, and to blur clear lines of what is “normal” behaviour. The Old Testament story of Sodom and Gomorrah is being reprised in a complex and sophisicated way. I have little doubt that things will get worse in this respect.

Our society is very sick, in some ways.

This whole “licence fee” (tax) nonsense must end now. The idea that a “licence fee” guarantees BBC independence from the State is a bad joke, looking at how spineless the BBC is in questioning Government policy.

Jewish. Just say it…

I clicked on it to read the synopsis, and was amused to see that only 9 YouTube viewers upvoted the video, but that 1,900 had given it negative votes!

One of the dangers of the present time is that there are so many unworthy and in fact evil people in lucrative, applauded, influential and/or powerful positions that one is tempted to agree with the young Karl Marx (who was an actual Satanist), and who wrote that “everything in existence is worthy of being destroyed” (incidentally, that fact about the young Karl Marx was uncovered by research done in the 1920s by the Apostolic Nuncio to Germany, Pacelli, who later became Pope Pius XII).

Rifkind. Coren. How many are there in the msm?…

Ah…whatever happened to the “brilliant” Boris Johnson, who for 20 years had been puffed as someone who almost had to become Prime Minister? Nothing, because that “brilliant” Boris Johnson never really existed. That Johnson was a construct, firstly by “Boris” himself (the name is in fact itself not real), and by his father, a part-Jew scribbler and careerist; finally, by a collaborative msm.

What is left is the part-Jew, part-Levantine moneygrubber and narcissist, someone who always deflates to nothing when confronted by reality.

“Boris” was sacked as a trainee journalist for making up stories; the same happened when he was working as a journalist. As editor (of the Spectator) he let others do the work while he floated around like a ping-pong ball on the surface, periodically absenting himself for hours or days in order to take cocaine and/or screw Petronella Wyatt and others.

“Boris” also found himself confronted by reality as MP (sacked from Government by his superiors), Mayor of London (failed projects included the useless water-cannon, the abandoned Garden Bridge, buses, the expensive and almost unused Thames cable-car, and “Boris Island); also as Foreign Secretary (abject failure) and now as PM, in which exalted rank he has run the UK into the ground.

“Boris” was always the recipient of unmerited preferment and privilege.

“Boris” is already held in contempt even by his own party. Credible stories emerge that he will go in early-mid 2021. As always, it is “all about him”, how he wants more money from scribbling articles and books, and yet more via the making of after-dinner speeches. He wants to make, and may make, a million a year. He should be shot, or at least compelled to labour for a loaf of rye bread per day, and not rewarded for his crimes (as he probably will be), but this world is short on justice.

In the 1930s, most Brits living in Germany wanted a third way as against both Sovietism (Stalinism) and finance-capitalism (Anglo-Americanism). These days, Brits in Germany (Berlin, mostly) tend to be multikulti zealots, facemask zealots, EU zealots etc. Natural serfs.

but nowhere does Hitchens identify Rifkind as a Jew-Zionist.

Forget the “Left”/”Right”, focus on the realities…

The essence of both National Socialism and social nationalism.

The history of the Roman Catholic Church is intimately bound up with our Western civilization. Some of its achievements have been stellar; some of its sins huge. However, the central fact is that the institution is now nearing the end of its time.

The behaviour of the modern Chinese (as a group, and China as a state) is often ghastly and backward. The treatment of the peoples of Western China is one example. However, the comment about the falling European birth-rate, and so the proportion of Europeans in the world, is simple fact. We are being outbred. We need to take care of that in several ways.

More tweets

and even more true of what I myself say…

It never was. Part-Jew, part-Levantine, a shallow public entertainer.

I have had enough. Enough of the nonsense. Enough of the “clap for the State” nonsense. Enough of the busybodies and snitches. Enough of the facemask nonsense. Enough of the (not fully observed anyway) “social distancing” and “Rule of Six” nonsense. Enough of a nonsense government and a part-Jew, part-Levantine “Prime Minister” who has no idea how to properly fulfil his role.

I disagree anyway with the “lockdown(s)”, with the shutting down of the economy and society, and one can see that countries such as Sweden have everything working, and a lower death rate (per 1,000) than the UK.

In the end, our society has to bite the bullet. It seems that the young are scarcely affected, and that even the middle-aged are only somewhat affected. In addition, English and other real British (i.e. white) people are affected less than non-white (including Jews).

I myself am in at least one vulnerable group, at age 64, but say that the time has come to junk all the nonsense of the past 8+ months and revive the society and economy.

It is time to say “Enough!” and open everything up. Let the chips fall where they may.
