Coronavirus and culling (killing)

The original Daily Telegraph comment piece takes the amorality of present-day “Conservatism”  to a new level, at least in public discourse. Openly supporting the death of millions in order to support the finance-capitalist economy.

This is a logical consequence of what has been happening in society and especially in the Conservative Party over the past decade or so. We saw it in the Dunce Duncan Smith DWP regime (which continues, though without Dunce), in the way in which broadly the poorer part of society has been harried and bullied etc.

This is not even, or not only, political as such. It is a question of morality. It shows to what extent ideas such as those of the “philosopher of selfishness”, the “Russian” Jewess, Ayn Rand, have permeated the West. In the UK, mainly the Conservative Party. Raceless, cultureless, rootless persons such as Sajid Javid, who openly enthuses about Ayn Rand and her pathetic ideas.

I wonder how many of the almost entirely elderly, Conservative-voting persons who read the Telegraph realize that the newspaper and the Conservative Party regard their death as something rather positive?

It also shows to what extent society, UK society, has lost its “moral compass”.

The Jews are always pushing the “Nazis were terrible” line, but here we have mass killing of the mainly British elderly openly praised by the most influential and “serious” newspaper in Britain (though few newspapers are now really serious) and in our supposedly wonderful, supposedly “liberal” society…and only a few dissident pseudo-socialists on Twitter take exception (apart from social-national “extremists” like me, I suppose).

This is the kind of political amorality that has suffused our society over more than a decade. Effectively over two decades. We now have someone posing as “Prime Minister” who has no morality at all (and in fact no real intellectual life, just a dummy education in the classics, injected into him in his youth). A completely amoral Prime Minister, without any ideas worth anything, and without principle. He is also useless in a crisis.

Boris-idiot is advised (as good as controlled) by Dominic Cummings, himself someone of disordered mind, and whose own relatively brief business career, in the 1990s, was marked by complete failure.

The Twitterstorm continues, but few have expressed the points that

  • Twitter is not real life,
  • Twitter is not very influential in reality,
  • Twitter changes nothing.

So here we are, after 500-600 years of post-mediaeval culture:

  • pandemic
  • no medicines work against the epidemic/pandemic
  • antibiotics are not working or are irrelevant to the situation
  • anyone unwell must “self-isolate” in their own home, with or without a red cross painted on the door
  • State (NHS) help is unavailable for most people
  • the only advice is “wash your hands frequently”

Nadine Dorries

Ironically, the junior health minister (PUS), Nadine Dorries [Con, Mid Bedfordshire https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadine_Dorries] has become the first MP to fall victim to the virus (she is recovering in “self-isolation” at time of writing).

To borrow from and paraphrase Nevil Shute, our society is dying, not with a bang but a whimper…The report above is but one of countless examples. To put it another way, death by a million cuts.

Another example:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/beautician-mum-high-crack-cocaine-21669379

God Almighty!

Don’t forget— all of those ignorant people, whether you call them by any particular label or not,

  • have a vote equal to yours
  • probably think that they know as much or more than you
  • are willing to hate you if any newspaper they manage to read tells them this or that

They call it “democracy”…what a sick joke!

Opinion poll [Kantar]

Results (selected):

  • Westminster voting intention: Con 50% (!), Lab 29%, LibDems 11%, Greens 2%, UKIP 1%, Brexit Party 1%
  • 2019 General Election Labour voters think that the best new leader would be: Keir Starmer 25%, Lisa Nandy 15%, Rebecca Long-Bailey 8%, Don’t Know who would be best 52%…

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lkwHtaOINuFE5FGnGUCFeJgHKQf2ZPbN/view

Even with Boris-idiot failing to fill the shoes of a prime minister, even with a deadhead Cabinet, the Conservatives are yet on 50% of the popular vote, with Labour on a mere 29%. Labour has lost touch with the people generally and the people generally have thus cut Labour loose. Labour continues to dominate the Twittersphere, the inner city metro-London space, the world of the NHS and other public services, the loyalty of the blacks and browns. Otherwise? Dead and unlikely to have more than a limited revival.

Shortages

The loo paper panic-buying (in the UK and other —mainly Anglo— countries) is based not so much on practicality or prepping as on psychological foundations.

A few basic things maintain our sense of modern, civilized life, of Western civilization in fact. These are not intangibles such as music, philosophy, the confused ideas of “democracy”, however important those may be, but tangibles: electricity, running water, flush loos and, with those, loo paper.

We laugh at those stockpiling loo paper (so long as we ourselves have “enough”), because we may say “having loo paper will not prevent you getting Coronavirus/Covid-19”, and that is true. It is also true that having a stock of loo paper will not help you much if you do get the virus, because you will use little if any more paper than usual, and the sickness will pass (whatever happens) within a couple of weeks. The average person therefore needs only a stock of perhaps 6-18 rolls. The real point is the psychology.

We feel afraid, to a greater or lesser extent; we feel insecure. The State, NHS, police, whatever, do not offer security, least of all during this virus crisis. We therefore, as a society, turn to basic needs and amplify them. Electricity, running water etc cannot be stockpiled, not by the individual citizen. Loo paper can be stockpiled, though. Ergo, bulk buying…

The bulk buying of loo paper and some other items is an attempt to wrest back control of everyday life from the vortex of uncertainty.

I might add that, so far, the bulk buying has not stopped. I was at Waitrose late yesterday (they shut at 2000 hours here). No hand gel on sale, other cleaning items for the home largely sold out. The entire stock of loo paper sold out, not a roll left (and a cashier with whom I chatted told me that when she started her shift hours before, the stock had already gone…). The cheaper own-brand pasta also sold out (except for peculiarly-shaped pasta). Also, tinned tomato and, to a lesser extent, tinned sweetcorn.

There were, however, fewer actual shoppers than usual.

I would not want to add to the semi-panic, but I have discovered that the loo paper used in the UK comes, most of it, from overseas: 1.1 million tonnes out of 1.3 million. That’s the raw material. So it is not beyond reason to think that there might be a shortage if supply lines are disrupted.

However, we know, as far as Coronavirus is concerned, that there is a wave which rises and eventually falls. Weeks, maybe a few months at most, certainly not years. The most loo paper that any normal individual needs to have, based on 90 days, would therefore be somewhere around (arguably) 30 rolls. Maybe even as little as 20 rolls. So even a family of 4 people would need no more than (between) 80-120 rolls at absolute maximum. For 3 months’ supply. That must put the matter into perspective from the purely logical point of view.

The vicious defendants are merely described in the Daily Mirror as “from Lincoln”. No mention of the fact that they are Roma gypsies from Romania, as is obvious to any thinking person from their appearance and names. If they cannot be simply disposed of, they should at least be deported (and preferably sterilized first).

People often wonder why the public accepts “fake news”. Part of that is because the Zionist-influenced msm so often conceals real news.

Budget

The spending plans set out by Rishi Sunak today should have been put in place, speaking in overall terms, in 2010, 2011, 2012. Other countries, including USA and Germany, and France (among many others) did that to counteract the crazed meltdown of the “banking system” (i.e. the last finance-capitalism crisis) in 2007-2008.

Those countries did much better economically than the UK in the past decade, and they have not had to endure the social miseries caused directly by the sort of policies put in place by George Osborne, that pathetic little part-Jew sadist. Spending cuts, “austerity” (for half of the population) etc.

Look at Germany at the end of the Great Depression. Six million unemployed, the economy stagnant etc. The National Socialist government from 1933 got everything moving, and crucially started that happening by acts of political will. New projects were part of it, but the will to move forward energized everything. The will stemmed from one man, Adolf Hitler. He transmitted the will to his immediate followers and to the NSDAP, which then moved the whole country forward. Yes, part of the improvement was the removal of exploitation by Jews (though Jews still owned vast parts of the German economy for years after that, right up to 1939 in some cases), but the real cause of Germany’s uplift was the programme put in place to do things.

[Note. In relation to the second part of the notice immediately above: in the USA, Henry Ford introduced the 40-hour week in 1926, though it had become the norm in the American newspaper printing industry even before WW1. Henry Ford is the only American whose name is mentioned in Mein Kampf. In Europe, there were attempts to legislate for an 8-hour day in various places, though in some cases these were not fully-implemented: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eight-hour_day.]

It seems incredible today, what Germany was able to achieve in its six short years of uneasy peace from 1933 to 1939. No wonder that people flocked from all over the world to see the new Germany arise.

Final word for today

I think that it is absolutely legitimate to be angry at China for repeatedly unleashing dangerous viruses on the rest of the world mainly because of the generally disgusting Chinese attitude to animals, because of the fact that the Chinese in China will use and eat virtually anything, and often keep and use animals in disgusting ways.

There is much to admire in both the ancient Chinese culture and the contemporary Chinese capabilities, but political correctness and moral cowardice must not stop us from inflicting on China justified criticism, though of course no individual Chinese (especially in Europe) should be held accountable.

General Election 2019 Daily Updated Blog (no.9)

I now have to again restart my 2019 General Election blog.

Update, 1830, 9 December 2019

Latest opinion poll

The above poll is the second in the past day or so  to show an upward movement in the Labour vote: this poll would leave the Conservatives 6 short of a majority. Only two opinion polls, so far, but together with the poll about preference for Prime Minister (Johnson on 39%, Corbyn on 32%, the latter very good compared to previous ratings), it may just be that we are seeing a swing to Labour, albeit modest.

Update, 10 December 2019

Only ONE clear day now before Polling Day

Well, as I thought would happen, and have recently blogged about, there is at last—at least some— movement toward Labour, or rather away from the Conservatives. The disgraceful and all-too-typical treatment of the little boy sleeping on a hospital floor may be Boris-idiot’s “Mrs Duffy” moment:

[Gordon Brown and Mrs Duffy in the 2010 General Election campaign]

I hated most of Gordon Brown’s policies and views (System ZOG/Bilderberg) and did not think much of him personally (judging admittedly mainly from what I saw in msm sources), but fair’s fair: Gordon Brown, as Prime Minister, was still head and shoulders above Cameron-Levita, May and now this total idiot, “Boris”. We have gone rather rapidly into politics as farce, or maybe tragi-comedy.

I was watching a few minutes of All Out Politics on Sky News. LibDems. People in woollen bobble hats in some fairly leafy area. Whenever you see the LibDems, you just know that those people have no serious financial or other problems, and that they (or their husbands, wives, parents) either have private incomes or (and/or) professional occupations. You may say that there is nothing wrong with that, but it does tend to lead to a rather unfocussed bien-pensant attitude or mindset.

I have met many many English people like that. They are those whose counterparts, in the Germany of the 1920s and early 1930s, could not imagine Hitler and the National Socialists coming to power on the back of popular need, and anger and disgust with the System; they are those who, in the Russia of early 1917, supported the Cadet Party and the liberals around Prince Lvov, and laughed at Lenin and his angry Bolsheviki who were, the well-meaning, comfortably-off folk thought, never going to get into power.

When I look at Liberal Democrats (I mean the rank and file, not the Con-lite careerists at the top of the party), I see people who basically are not angry enough. Not angry enough about little boys having to sleep and be treated on hospital floors, not angry enough about the UK swamped and flooded by immigrants and their (pop! pop! pop!) offspring, THIRTEEN MILLION since 1997! Not angry enough that British young people are not being trained in sufficient numbers as doctors and nurses. Not angry enough at Jew-Zionist speculators in the City of London (or the USA, or in Tel Aviv), refusing to be taxed for the benefit of the British people. Not angry enough at cultural degeneracy. And so on.

The LibDems have no bite.

Had Jo Swinson and her stupid little group of MPs not supported the Con attempt to force this election (thus shaming Labour into backing it), we would not be where we are, within sight of a possible alien ZOG regime holding real power. The only justification for voting LibDem is where the only likely alternative winner is Con.

Boris-idiot is getting worried

Boris-idiot and his cabal are getting worried that the Cons might not get a majority. I pray not. That little bastard, with his rote-learned bits of Greek and Latin, and his “look at me, I’m terribly clever and want to be World King” long and unusual words trawled from the Oxford English Dictionary, must not have power. At present, he has only the semblance of power.

Boris-idiot has for 20+ years acted out the part of someone hugely intelligent who almost “must” become Prime Minister. He has sold that persona to gullible people in the msm and public. Look at his record of both dishonesty and incompetence. He has never done a job properly, whether it be journalist, editor, MP, junior minister, Mayor of London , Cabinet minister and now Prime Minister.

We have been told for many years, in effect, “Boris has the ability to be PM, but does he have the integrity and character?” to which I have always replied, “Boris does not have the integrity and character, but he also does not have the ability”. In fact, where is his supposed intelligence proven? By getting a fairly mediocre Oxford degree? By failing at every job he has ever had? By scribbling a couple of derivative and all-but-plagiarized books about Churchill etc? By scribbling a brainless newspaper column?

People may wake up to the inadequacy of Boris-idiot as PM only when a real crisis happens and he is unable to deal with it. Look at the 2011 (mainly) black riots in London. Boris had no idea what to do. He made a gesture by turning up with a few people and brooms (and Press photographers) at Clapham; later buying (unusable) water cannon, weeks after the riots had stopped. He tried the old broom nonsense again in the recent floods. As (briefly, disastrously) Foreign Secretary, he mishandled the Iranian hostage matter so badly that the unfortunate lady in question was put in a yet worse position and even now remains in prison there.

More Boris (and Mail on Sunday) lies:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/dec/10/break-embargo-expose-press-lies-labour

Latest polling:

Once again, the likely result is a hung Parliament, with Cons the largest party in the Commons but 6 MPs short of a majority. Good news.

I wonder whether the LibDems would prop up a Con regime? Maybe they would, maybe only if Brexit were either not implemented or the transition “extended” yet again, maybe for years. I am in any event expecting the LibDems to end up with only 5-10 seats.

The DUP have seen what a liar and horrible bastard Boris-idiot is. They will never support him again and may even vote his non-Brexit measures down. Happy day…

Ah! I nearly forgot to blog about the egregious Farage and his imploding “Brexit Party…

I heard Farage on Radio 4 Today Programme this morning. As ever, talking a good game. He either does not realize —or does realize but cannot redo it now— that standing down his candidates in Con-held seats only has simply destroyed Brexit Party as a credible party. Farage seems to look on his move as simple a clever manoeuvre to facilitate Brexit by supporting Boris-idiot and the Cons, despite the fact that

  • Boris Johnson’s Brexit is really BRINO, Brexit In Name Only;
  • Many Con MPs were (and as 2019 candidates are) Remainers or at best BRINO-ers.

The apparent fact (from listening to the radio interview) that Farage cannot understand why his candidates think that he has betrayed them says everything about this little man talking big (albeit that he is a good public speaker).

In fact, Farage and his top cabal not only let down the stood-down candidates but also all the other Brexit Party candidates, who now have no credibility whatever. Brexit Party is now on 2%-3% in all polls, but Farage still talks about how he hopes to get “a few…half a dozen” MPs! Cloud-cuckoo land.

Oh no…! It gets worse! Farage has now expelled two Brexit Party councillors, in Hartlepool, for being “racist”…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50722346

and Richard Tice, the business bod who is Farage’s 2-i-c and candidate for the Hartlepool constituency, has joined in, insulting those councillors. Bye-eee, Tice! Not much chance now!

So the sacked councillor (sacked from failed and fake “Brexit Party”, but Farage has not the power to sack the man as a councillor) apparently said that “Muslims” “are outbreeding us”. Well, that is no more than the plain truth. In fact, it is true of not only the (99.9% non-white) Muslims in the UK, but really all of the blacks and browns. They usually have 3+, even 5+ children, whereas white British people often have no children, or merely 1 or 2. We are being outbred. It’s a fact.

Google “the Great Replacement”, or “the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan”.

Migration invasion is not merely a matter of rubber boats landing on the pebble beaches of Kent and Sussex, not merely the hordes arriving on ferries or at the major airports. It includes the offspring of those non-Brits already here.

Political imbeciles like Farage have had their day. His candidates only have one use now as far as I am concerned: to take away votes from the misnamed Conservatives. They will not take away many, unfortunately. Brexit Party is on only about 2% or so in the polls. In the average constituency, that means about 1,200 votes. Enough, hopefully, to block a few Conservative wins, anyway.

A reader of my blog (not someone I know personally) just sent me this, which I think is the sort of account of NHS care etc that the System politicians ignore:

“Just got home after 4 hours at Hosp’ amazing that our treatment is free on the NHS and thank God.
[medical and identifying details blanked out]

Impossible not to notice that the various nurses, doctors and radiographers with the exception of one (from New Zealand) were either Indian, Iranian, Chinese, or one from Zaire and they seemed to all have accents, so not educated here. The Tory’s were stupid to stop the bursary for nurses and to make it a degree course, now we have to import fully trained NHS staff from elsewhere because Brit girls can’t afford to do the degree. On the other hand, apart from myself, the only other white lady in the waiting room was an Irish lady.

The question is if we didn’t have so many immigrants as patients, we wouldn’t need so many staff, so how would [name and location of hospital blanked out] hospital have looked this a.m. if we had no immigrants on either side? I am always told that we HAVE TO bring in immigrants to pay the taxes needed to cover the cost/care of our elderly, which makes it sound like some dodgy pyramid scheme. Surely every immigrant also becomes a user of health care, of our education system for their children, policing etc. Does the average tax and National Insurance contribution cover what we take out? Someone must know. I remember one (Arab) family who came here as refugees a long time ago. They had 10 children and the father was a Doctor. So far so good. Then the Mum bolted, eventually the younger children got taken into care, the older children were given council flats, then eventually the younger ones grew up, left care and got into council flats too. Before the children were ultimately taken into care the Dad had to give up working to care for them, so how much did that one family cost us so far? As far as I hear, none of the children have gone on to be high earners.

Why is Britain so stupid as to give refugees Nationality? We can shelter people until whatever disaster made them flee, then send them home with a few thousand pounds to help them on their way. We can offer fixed term contracts for those whom we need to work here.”

Why indeed?…

I thought that worth posting. The account of someone who is, according to the viewpoint of System drones, far less ideological and far less “extreme” than I am supposed to be…

“Against stupidity, the Gods themselves struggle in vain” [Schiller, Die Jungfrau von Orleans]

An example of the application of that quotation:

Well, no-one should ever underestimate the stupidity of the mob: they know that their candidate has no chance, but instead of voting tactically, or just staying at home, they will go out and proudly exercise their pseudo-democratic right! Idiots.

Vote for animal welfare

One clear day to go before Polling Day and most opinion polls still have the Conservatives between 5 and 15 points ahead of Labour. LibDems are not going to do well and Brexit Party is “a dead man walking”.

Yet it need not be that the Cons get a majority. If, in the 50-100 most marginal constituencies, the under-45 voters turn out, the voters who do not usually vote turn out, the renters and students and poorly paid and unemployed etc turn out, and vote Labour or (tactically) for LibDem, SNP etc, it need not happen.

You are not voting for a Labour government, you are voting to stop an “elected” tyranny being imposed on the British people.

As things stand, Labour cannot get a majority, so all the scare stories about how East Germany circa 1970 is about to take over the UK are nonsense.

More polling news

YouGov predicting Con majority of 28 but “cannot rule out a hung Parliament”. In other words, there is still all to play for in those marginal seats.

The msm are now desperate to raise non-issues to damage Labour. The latest has been a series of comments (possibly in jest) by dimwit Jonathan Ashworth:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50726592

Anyone who votes Conservative, knowing what has been done since 2010, knowing what a nasty, squalid little liar and pipsqueak would-be tyrant Boris-idiot is, is an enemy of the British people.

A vote for the Conservatives is also not a “vote for Brexit”, because Boris-idiot wants a “Brexit In Name Only” and only pretends to want that much because he thinks that it will boost his MP numbers in this election. Wake up— he’s just a pathological liar.

Meanwhile, treacherous pro-Israel Jew and pro-Zionist ex-Labour MPs have stabbed Labour in the back at the crucial moment, taking out large Press advertisements (must have cost plenty…):

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/dont-vote-labour-warn-former-17397217

If Boris Johnson and his alien ZOG Cabinet end Polling Day with a Commons majority, a majority procured entirely by lies and by dark manipulation of the corrupted msm, it could objectively be said that “normal” politics has been suspended and that a low-intensity civil war has begun.

Oh, before the witching hour, I must not forget to (as people say today) “shout out” to the voters of Lincoln: don’t be silly enough to vote for Israel doormat Karl McCartney, the “Conservative” expenses-blodger, who was cast out in 2017. Read my piece about him:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/04/26/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-karl-mccartney-story/

In other news, the Labour candidate in Chingford is polling only one or two points behind Dunce Duncan Smith:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/my-mum-humiliated-iain-duncan-21066902

Normally, I would never “endorse” a non-English candidate, but in this case I hope that she wins, beating that evil cheating bastard Dunce (who is part-Jap anyway…).

Update, 11 December 2019

Polling Day is tomorrow!

So it has come down to the wire. Four years of (mainly) Jew-Zionist propaganda in the msm has obviously damaged Corbyn and so Labour. Having said that, when people forget Corbyn and think of parties and policies and general outlook, in my opinion Labour is probably doing better than many expected, at least.

The “Conservatives” are appalling and Boris-idiot is arguably the most appalling of the lot. I myself find it hard to imagine any reason why a voter would vote Conservative in this election, unless he or she is in the top 5% for income and/or capital and is voting purely on the basis of personal self-interest re. taxation .

“Boris” will not “deliver Brexit”; he will deliver a BRINO that is similar to those offered by Mrs May. He has an appalling record of incompetence and dishonesty (as have many Con ministers). What else is there? Empty promises from a man whose every word is a lie.

Still, the polls all show a national lead for Con over Lab, albeit far less of a lead with every day. How that translates into marginal seats, no-one really knows for sure. The election came two or three weeks late for the Cons, but it may have come several weeks too early for Labour to do really well.

On a wider view…

I hope so! Please God YES! (see conclusion of tweet by pro-Israel faux-proletarian scribbler Dan Hodges, below)

Labour, of course, is good only for stopping Boris Johnson and his alien ZOG Cabinet, stopping them from having a majority and then imposing a New World Order tyranny on the UK. Down the line, a new movement must arise, a social national party and movement to create a new and better society in the UK and across Europe.

Latest opinion polling (from Opinium):

That would give Boris-idiot a huge majority, if accurate. majority of 90+ MPs…

However, one of the more informed System commentators in the msm, John Rentoul, agrees with me, even using the same phrase!

From only an hour ago:

“Conservative” Britain 2019: not working for British people…

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/dad-forced-onto-universal-credit-21071794

In High Peak, Derbyshire, the “Conservative” candidate, Robert Largan (whose main interest seems to be Jews and Israel), is exposed here below:

“Boris Johnson wants to destroy the Britain I love. I cannot vote Conservative” [Peter Oborne]

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/dec/11/boris-johnson-destroy-britain-conservative-revolutionary-sect

They also don’t ask how Boris Johnson meets his notoriously expensive private financial commitments on his meagre prime ministerial salary, now that he no longer enjoys his reported £250,000 a year from The Daily Telegraph. His hero Winston Churchill was helped out by lavish private subventions from business tycoons. Is history repeating itself?” [Peter Oborne]

https://www.opendemocracy.net/en/opendemocracyuk/as-a-lifelong-conservative-heres-why-i-cant-vote-for-boris-johnson/

Peter Oborne, sometimes eccentric, sometimes mistaken, but never without courage, has got this absolutely right.

Look at the “Cabinet” of Boris-idiot:

  • Boris Johnson, part-Jew, part-Turk, part-whatever, born in New York City, brought up largely in USA and Belgium; held US passport until recently. Went to Eton and Oxford, where he was a member of the young thug and vandal club, the Bullingdon. In order to join, he had to burn a £50 note in front of a homeless person…A former (earlier) member of the Bullingdon, David Dimbleby, has said that, until David Cameron-Levita and Boris Johnson joined, the Bullingdon was a club for young gentlemen.
  • Dominic Raab, part-Jew. Wants a completely soulless free market system. Very unpleasant. May be facing “certain allegations” from his staff…
  • Grant Shapps, Jew, best known for dodgy business dealings, such as masquerading, even in the Palace of Westminster, under other names, and trying to sell get-rich-quick scams to mugs; was head of the youth wing of the Jew-Zionist Bnai Brith organization;
  • Liz Truss, only became an MP on her back. Incredibly dim.
  • Sajid Javid, Pakistani born in UK. Ex-Muslim. Devotee of the crazed Jewish writer Ayn Rand. Fanatically pro-Jew and pro-Israel.
  • Rishi Sunak, wealthy Indian. Ex-Goldman Sachs. Another rootless cosmopolitan.
  • Priti Patel, Indian whose parents arrived from East Africa in the 1970s. Effectively an Israeli agent. Was sacked by Mrs May after having been exposed, but later taken on by Boris-idiot. Calls British workers “lazy”. Pro-Jew slavedriver.
  • Robert Buckland, thick Welsh barrister.
  • Brandon Lewis, thick barrow-boy barrister.
  • Andrea Leadsom, complete nonentity in the Theresa May mould.
  • Matt Hancock, once little more than a teaboy (with a degree) at Bank of England. Suited thug.
  • Therese Coffey, unpleasant moneygrubber. Tank-like, Guinness-drinking, cigar-smoking, but supposedly not a lesbian…
  • Gavin Williamson, former fireplace salesman. Deadhead. Idiot. Has pet spider and thinks that the UK can challenge China (which can put 850 large naval ships on the sea, as against UK’s 20) in the Far East, or Russia (which can if necessary field 4 million troops, as against UK’s 50,000-150,000) in the Baltic region. Idiot.
  • Amusingly misnamed James Cleverly, a “half-caste” (mother West African) who has a “degree” in “Hospitality Management” from a “McUniversity”. Thick. Atheist. Tried to get out of responsibility after having caused a car crash recently.
  • Michael Gove, cocaine-abusing pro-Jew, pro-Israel expenses cheat.
  • Robert Jenrick, entitled little pissant.

And there are more where they came from. As far as I know, all the Cabinet members around Boris-idiot are Friends of Israel members.

Latest opinion polling

The final polls for the main polling organizations have come out. The Cons are scoring in the range 41% to 45%, Lab from 32% to 36%.

On those strict figures, the 2019 General Election result could be anything from a Conservative majority of 100+ to a Conservative majority of about 10.

Bearing in mind that the polls can be out by several points either way, that means that the election result could be anything from an almost off-the-scale Con majority of somewhere between 100-150 and a hung Parliament with the Cons as many as 40 short of a Commons majority.

If the Cons really were hugely short of a majority, they would find it hard even to form a minority government, because the LibDems will probably get fewer than 20 seats (I am predicting maybe 10), and the SNP and others will not support the Cons. In that event, Labour, perhaps 50 short, will have the unexpected possibility to form a minority government with the SNP and others. If SNP get 50 seats, they alone could partner Labour. If not, others will have to come aboard. The LibDems are craven, so they might, whatever they now say.

A last word for voters in Lincoln

“The Lincolnite” does not seem to understand the meaning of “successive”! Never mind.

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/04/26/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-karl-mccartney-story/

For God’s sake, don’t vote in that freeloading chancer and pro-Israel Freemason, Karl McCartney, Lincoln voters!

It is now 2340. There is still all to play for. In the most marginal constituencies, voters can stop this slide into ZOG tyranny by denying Boris-idiot and his evil alien Cabinet a majority. Vote tactically contra the Cons.

I shall be starting a separate blog article for Polling Day.

My final word today:

The “Leaders’ Debate” has just been held. I only saw extracts on the TV news, but based on that, I should say that Corbyn came over better; my subjective view, of course. Twitter reaction (for what it is worth) seems mixed, as does instant polling: Corbyn “more trustworthy” and “in touch with ordinary people”, Boris-idiot more “Prime Ministerial” (that Old Etonian gloss again?) and (it surprises me that the punters think so, though) more “likeable”

The Conservative Party leadership cadre is now infused with the deep dishonesty typical and characteristic of Boris Johnson, Dominic Cummings and the present Cabinet (eg the Jew Shapps, who sold members of the public dodgy business schemes and get-rich-quick plans, while posing under other names and even entering the Palace of Westminster using faked ID):

TV talking head Robert Peston saying that Corbyn “won”:

Journalist Isabel Oakeshott seems to be, reading between the lines, doing damage control for Boris-idiot, in effect.

Isabel Oakeshott, now the girlfriend of Brexit Party second in command Richard Tice, and like so many Brexit “Party” supporters (I am presuming, perhaps, that she is a supporter), seems to have one foot in Brexit Party and another in the Conservative Party. There is now little difference between the two, which is why Brexit Party is being washed down the plughole.

Retired fire chief and pro-Labour tweeter John Edwards blocked me on Twitter (before the Jews had me expelled in 2018). He said that I am “a dreadful fascist”! Yet here I am, reposting his tweet of this evening…

and from Alastair Campbell, one-time Blair spinmeister:

While only a LibDem like Tim Farron could imagine that Jo Swinson “won the debate” by virtue of not actually being there!

Update, 20 November 2019

I was reading some of what I wrote about Brexit Party earlier in the year. Well, much water under the bridge since then!

Brexit Party was polling around 12% when Farage decided to pull 317 Brexit Party candidates only 4 weeks before the election. That was followed by another 38. That, in return for a worthless promise from Boris Johnson, a man of no credibility, no integrity, a useless beneficiary of the UK’s sick political system.

Farage‘s ridiculous decision (taken unilaterally and without consultation with the candidates themselves, who had all paid to be considered as candidates) collapsed Brexit Party overnight. Farage killed his party as surely as if he had shot it in the neck.

Now, at time of writing, Brexit Party is in the polls at around 4% and, with 3 weeks to go, is not a serious contender in the General Election. Brexit Party might have won a number of seats while depriving the Conservatives (mainly) of a number of others, but now will be lucky to win even in those constituencies where it had a chance (e.g. Hartlepool).

Why did Farage destroy his own party? I am not the conspiracy theorist some imagine but I do speculate whether this is some kind of Russian operation.

Russia, we are told, wants the UK out of the EU (and, in Putin’s wildest dreams, NATO). Taking that as correct, it may be that Russian strategists were (are?) hoping for “hard Brexit” or “no deal Brexit” (real Brexit), because it weakens the EU (as part of the New World Order or “NWO”) and because a real Brexit might both cause economic/political discontent in the UK down the line and also stimulate Scottish nationalism, with the possibility that Scotland might break off from the UK, and then possibly (probably) decommission the nuclear missile submarine and air bases there. A break-up of the UK would be a stunning coup for the Russian state in terms of Atlantic geopolitics.

Still speculating, if an immediate “hard Brexit” seemed likely to be blocked by Parliament’s Remain majority in the event of another hung Parliament, then Russian strategists might have decided to strengthen Conservative Party chances by taking out Brexit Party.

Brexit Party is a dictatorship of one man, Farage. To take Brexit Party out of the General Election, Farage alone had to make that decision. He did. So the question is why did Farage take that decision? To my mind, there is no logical reason based on ordinary politics why Farage should take the word of a proven and continual liar such as Boris Johnson. On the other hand, if Farage is or has become an agent under control, then it makes perfect sense.

How do we know that Farage has not been promised (or even paid already) a large sum (£20M is good, £50M is even better) offshore? It makes sense in baldly venal terms but it also makes sense for Farage politically, if Farage has become convinced that a Boris prime ministership with a large majority would result, in a year or two, in a “hard” or even “no deal” Brexit. That way, Farage gets a secret fortune and the political result he has wanted to see since the early 1990s.

True, Farage is wealthy anyway (is supposed to be), but so what? As to whether the Russians would pay really large sums for such purposes…well, the wife of an “oligarch” paid the Conservative Party £160,000 just to have a tennis game with Boris Johnson and David Cameron-Levita. On that basis, £50M to change the whole course of British policy and strategy seems cheap at the price.

There is no direct evidence that Farage is an agent of the Russian state, but he has been shown to have close links with some leading “oligarchs” etc. The Russia of Putin is not the Soviet Union. It operates partly via the uber-wealthy who are beholden to Putin; the Soviet Union operated in this sense in a different way, bureaucratically, via the KGB and its predecessor agencies (NKVD etc), GRU and, pre-WW2, the Comintern.

As we have seen (google, or see my earlier blogs), Boris Johnson, like Farage, is or has been close to some Russian or Russian-Jew “oligarchs”. Then there is the role of Dominic Cummings, Johnson’s “adviser” (who however has been reported as having actually overruled Johnson on some occasions!). I blogged about Cummings a few months ago: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/

There have been those who have implied that Cummings is a kind of Russian agent. My previous assumption was that he might have been an agent of SIS (British agent rather than salaried officer, perhaps, but who knows?) for a while (when he was in Russia for about 3 years after having graduated from university) but again that was just my speculative thought. Still, one would not necessarily preclude the other, especially over time. Allegiances change, people change, or are suborned, or bought, or get angry and turn coat. These things happen.

I have no evidence that Farage has been paid a huge bribe by Russia; I have no evidence that Cummings has, either. Still, I do wonder. “Thoughts are duty free”, even in the EU…

There is, of course, also the fact that the British Intelligence assessment of some connected matters is not going to be released until after the General Election. It has been held up by Johnson and Cummings. Why?

Here’s something interesting! In 1993, Corbyn was in favour of paying blacks to clear out of the UK! Well, why not? Cheap at the price, really…

A few thoughts

I was listening in the car to the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme, broadcast in part from somewhere called Sheffield College. I have now looked it up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sheffield_College

To say that I was appalled by the quality of the three students called upon to discuss the election etc would be an understatement. All were studying Journalism, apparently. They had all been asked to listen to the Corbyn/Johnson debate.

The least impressive of the three was a young woman whose every fourth or fifth word was “like”. She had previously favoured “Jeremy” but thought that Johnson was clearer on what he wanted. I think that she may have just meant “more emphatic”. The others at least used “like” more sparingly. The sole young man was even able to string a sentence together, though not to much effect. All three were concerned about what the first young woman called “climate” [change] but one got the impression that all three knew as much about the issues as my cat’s left ear. The young man referred to the need to do something so that “we don’t have to wade through three feet of water”, though that would be unlikely except in a flood of Biblical proportions, Sheffield itself being situated at a height above sea level of between 95 feet and 1,798 feet:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheffield#Geography

Perhaps the reference was meant to be humorous.

Overall, I found the three students disturbing not because they seemed in any way rebellious or radical, but because they seemed to be such bland creatures. That, and the (apparent) palpable ignorance and inability to comprehend, think, or express themselves cogently. I was interested to hear that all three wanted to leave Sheffield (one said it is “boring”), though the “like…like…like” girl wanted to move to “London, Manchester or Salford”, a strange mixture. “How will you keep them down on the farm, once they’ve seen…Salford?”…Unlikely.

Politically, all were registered to vote, but none mentioned any issues that concerned them except “climate” and none had any ideas, it seemed, about that, just that it was of concern. All thought that life and career was and would be harder for them than it had been for their parents (in that I am inclined to agree, in general) but again none had any ideas about how to change that. Not one seemed to espouse any political ideology or philosophy. These were potential journalists, we were asked to believe. Depressing.

A further thought comes to mind, not for the first time. We are always being told by polling organizations and Remain whiners themselves that Remain partisans tend to be “better educated”, by which is meant “have degrees” etc. The trouble with that contention is that about half of all 18+ y o persons now go to some kind of college or “uni”. These degree mills pump out “graduates”, many of whom are in reality completely uneducated and uncultured, and in not a few cases plainly as thick as two short planks. In other words, this whole “Remain voters/supporters are better educated than people who want out of the EU” is a conclusion based on false premises.

For once I agree with faux-proletarian scribbler Dan Hodges (re. Corbyn in that debate; see below):

For my money (having seen only extracts, admittedly), Corbyn “won” because he did seem fairly ordinary, which must have been a shock to many who half-believed the fantasies of the popular Press and Boris Johnson to the effect that Corbyn is akin to Stalin, Trotsky, Lenin etc. I daresay that some viewers were surprised that Corbyn had only one head, and that it was not that of a demonic goat, complete with horns.

The laughter when Boris-idiot talked about trust and honesty said it all: Boris is not trusted, and actually not respected. He is not really treated by the public as a real Prime Minister. That means that he gets away with more, though. It works both ways.

Conservative Party lead is more apparent than real:

Update, 21 November 2019

https://news.sky.com/story/jo-swinson-risks-becoming-the-handmaiden-of-boris-johnsons-brexit-11866014

The LibDems released their manifesto to some msm publicity a day or so ago, but the interest was rather muted. It seems to me that the LibDems are becoming almost an irrelevance in this election. The retreat of Brexit Party has closed off quite a few LibDem possibilities in Con-held seats in the South of England (mainly), because the Conservative vote in those seats will have been shored up.

At the same time, the stance of the Liberal Democrats is “socially liberal, fiscally conservative”, following the lead of Jo Swinson herself, who after all held junior office during the 2010-2015 Con Coalition. That is not only the reverse of my own position, but also will not play in much of England, Wales or Scotland. I doubt that the LibDems will take many —if any— seats presently held by Labour.

In fact, under the pressure of the big-spend pledges of Lab and Con, the LibDems have loosened the reins of spending too, in their manifesto.

The LibDems have “bet the farm” on being the only significant party in the General Election to be clearly and firmly Remain (in England, that is; in Scotland, the SNP position is effectively the same).

Only about half of the voters favour Remain. Only about a third of those consider Brexit to be the most important issue in the election. So 15%-20% both favour Remain and think it the most important issue. It is noteworthy that the LibDems are currently running at between 12% and 18% in the various opinion polls. Admittedly, that is well above their polling of past months (and years).

There are seats in London and the South East where the LibDems may take a few seats, but in the big picture the LibDems are an irrelevance. I think that Leave supporters might vote either Con or Lab, whereas there are, no doubt, Remain supporters who think that Labour is sufficiently Remain to be supported, or alternatively that while the Conservatives are not Remain, they all the same are effectively so, via Boris Johnson’s BRINO (“Brexit In Name Only”) “deal”.

I wrote off the LibDems after 2011, but was only (?) 90% right. The LibDems survived like political cockroaches. I am tempted to write them off again, but they do have that ability to hang on somehow. FPTP voting is both their bane and their lifeline (as the “third choice” party).

An interesting psephological analysis about potential Conservative Party majorities, published 2 days ago:

https://inews.co.uk/news/politics/general-election-polls-2019-the-big-conservative-poll-lead-isnt-nearly-as-big-as-it-looks-1303606

The Jews on Twitter have been going mad for the past day, merely because Jeremy Corbyn, at the TV debate, pronounced the name of the Jew paedophile, rapist etc, Jeffrey Epstein, correctly. He pronounced it as “Epshtine” (“tine” like River Tyne), which is correct in normal German (and so Yiddish) usage. The Jews of Twitter are claiming that the name should be pronounced in the incorrect American manner, i.e. “Epsteen”. The Beatles had a manager called Brian Epstein, and I only ever heard of him referred to as “Epshtine” or “Epstine”, never “Epsteen”. The funny thing is that broadcast msm drones in the UK, at least on the BBC, are running so scared of the Jews that today every last one of them, e.g. on the Radio 4 Today Programme, was using “steen” and not “shtine” or even “stine”.

Labour’s manifesto has been released, promising a building programme: 100,000 council houses per year for years. Well, there is a housing shortage of very serious proportions, and there is also a serious problem of abuse of the lives of tenants by landlords. However, much of the problem in this sector is caused by the migration-invasion, i.e. mass immigration, combined with births to immigrants.

Labour wants more immigration, even though immigration is running at something like 500,000 a year. Net? Officially 258,000 in 2018, but that leaves out illegals, and even the government estimates that there are 1.5 MILLION of those pests alone in the UK now! Also, “net immigration” conceals the fact that virtually all “permanent” immigrants are non-white, whereas many leaving the UK are white English, Scottish, Welsh people fleeing to Australia and elsewhere, as well as EU nationals returning home.

There is almost no point in building hundreds of thousands of houses if most will go to migrant-invaders (and so encourage even more to try to move here). Britain cannot absorb (net) a quarter of a million or more new “inhabitants” every single year, meaning a population the size of a city such as Southampton, and remain a decent or even half-decent country.

Film has emerged of aggressive “security” staff attacking a Brexit Party leafletter at a Morrison’s supermarket:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10391593/bully-morrisons-security-guard-throws-brexit-party-candidate/

Britain 2019. I suppose that the thing that surprises me most, looking at the report, is that there are still people prepared to waste their time (let alone get assaulted) canvassing or leafletting for Brexit Party.

Now that I have seen more of the Labour manifesto,

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50511003

I am thinking (leaving substance aside and considering it from the electoral point of view) “why not”? Labour is in a bit of a hole in the opinion polls; it cannot do much worse (because around 25% would vote Labour even if it proposed copying the policies of Pol Pot or of Trotsky’s War Communism). Labour’s struggle is to persuade another 10% to 15% to put their crosses by Labour on the ballot paper.

On the above premise, Labour may as well be radical and own it. It just might work.

Meanwhile, “Mainstream”, the new Jewish-funded anti-Corbyn organization, has come out with a spoof ad featuring the Jewish actress Maureen Lipman. She “threatened” to leave the UK and go to Israel or the USA if Corbyn became Labour leader. Oddly enough, she is still here…still “threatening” to emigrate.

John Woodcock, the disgraced sex pest former MP, who has mental problems, is going to be, or already is, the Con-appointed “special envoy” on “countering violent extremism”, despite his completely partisan, biased ideological position. In other words, someone who is as good as an agent of influence for Israel is going to be snooping on and working against those British people struggling in the front ranks of the socio-political battle of our time. Woodcock is a leading member or supporter of “Mainstream”, which in this election is trying to weaken Labour’s chances.

Update, 22 November 2019

The Daily Mail examines the effect of Brexit Party on Labour-held seats in the North of England:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7711253/Will-Brexit-Party-help-Boris-win-Shock-poll-finds-Tories-13-points-ahead-ultra-Leave-seat.html

I have to say that, after the Brexit Party shambles during this election campaign, I struggle to see why anyone would still vote Brexit Party, but there it is. I suppose that the same mugs voted LibLabCon all their lives, so why not?

A second “Leaders’ Debate” will not now be held, because Boris Johnson has cried off. He failed to win the last one and has now blinked.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/channel-4-cancels-general-election-20931983

As I have repeatedly blogged, Labour is now the party of the non-Europeans (meaning mainly the “blacks and browns”), public service workers and those dependent on State benefits:

Naturally, it is trite to say “Mrs May and the Conservatives were ahead at this point during the 2017 General Election campaign [and therefore the Boris Johnson Con lead in this election campaign will have gone by Polling Day].” Why? Because Mrs May had built up or rather puffed up a brittle bubble around the “strong and stable” mantra. When she made a U-turn on elderly social care and seemed unable to do more than shriek “Nothing has changed! Nothing has changed!”, the whole Theresa May, Conservative Party “strong and stable” bubble just burst. Not even overnight. At once.

This time round? So far, no one defining moment of that sort. One may happen between now and Polling Day (3 weeks minus 1 day from today; 20 days), but part of Boris Johnson’s strength is that no-one actually expects Boris-idiot to be consistent, or honest, or even particularly —or at all— competent. Everyone knows that he is a liar, an incompetent, a philanderer, a money-grasper etc. It is therefore hard to see what event or behaviour would be so calamitous as to actually surprise the public. Johnson has actually weaponized his own inability to be a proper Prime Minister.

Having said the above, the Conservatives (like Labour) are piling up extra votes in seats which they were going to hold anyway. It is not impossible to see floating voters in marginal English and Welsh constituencies being interested by Labour’s policy offer. Add that to likely Con losses in Scotland and London and it is possible to think that a hung Parliament is as possible as a Con majority.

Labour cannot get a majority, in my view, but it can still prevent Boris-idiot from getting one.

Seems that Labour’s tax plans etc mean that people in the top 5% of earners will have to pay a small amount more in tax (supposedly £10 per month, which seems very modest). There has been argument over whether people earning £80,000 pa really are in the top 5%, following a Question Time spat. There has also been confusion over whether the tranche of taxpayers affected will be those only in the top 5% or in the top 50%.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/bbc-question-time-man-who-20935155https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/bbc-question-time-man-who-20935155

Twitter exploded.

If ever there is an area where the devil is in the detail it is that of taxation.

Of course, it is all too easy to feel that “I make x-amount per year and I’m certainly not rich/wealthy/affluent.” As long as ago as 2001, I myself made well over £80,000 gross (but that was that year; my income was always either “feast or famine”, the latter almost literally at times), so in today’s 2019-money-value maybe £140,000 gross (educated guess) yet I did not feel wealthy, though certainly not poor either. Today? I am genuinely near-broke! The point is that whether you feel “well-off” is very subjective (in my own case, a fairly large chunk of my earnings in late 2001-early 2002 went on just renting a quite modest detached house in the London area).

I may have been in the top couple of percent in terms of income, but did not feel wealthy or particularly privileged (and my assets were few, another important point: I had little beyond a 2,000-book library, a Rolex watch and a —rather modest— car).

But leading lawyer Jolyon Maugham tweeted: “Fact. Earning £80,000 a year puts you well into the top *3%* of adult earners.”

He added: “£80,000 – what an MP earns – puts you into the top 3% but it doesn’t give you the lifestyle the English middle class once had.

“No private school, no comfortable house (certainly not in London), and so on. What we used to call a middle class existence is increasingly unobtainable.

“I’m not playing a violin for him – about 97% have it worse – but it does tell a story about how all the gains are going to an infinitesimally small number of people and how (in a way) everyone else can be cross with justification.” [from the Daily Mirror report]

How true. What matters is the lifestyle that comes out at the other end. The (?) relatively modest school which I (and my brothers) attended in the early 1970s now costs about £18,000 per pupil per year! (they do have bursaries etc)

https://www.rbcs.org.uk/admissions/fees-scholarships-and-bursaries/

Likewise, the semi-detached Victorian villa in the Little Venice section of Maida Vale, West London, where I spent many years (on and off) from age 19 to age 40, and which was valued at £100,000 in 1980, is now “worth” about £4 million! A 40x increase in “value” in 40 years! Hugely more than general inflation, let alone average pay, over those 40 years.

The fact is that in the UK, a tiny tiny number of incredibly rich people own almost everything and have incomes (and capital gains) in the millions and tens of millions, as well as assets in the tens of millions, hundreds of millions and thousands of millions (billions). They are a legitimate target for taxation and for at least partial expropriation.

However, it is clear that, in order to achieve social goals, any radical government will have to tax the ordinary Joe too. Ideas such as raising tax and NI thresholds are crude and help the “better-off” as much or more than the low earners. A far better way is to have no thresholds at all, and to give necessary help to the poor via other means (benefits such as child benefit, Basic Income etc). It is better to get £1 a head from a million people than £1,000 a head from a relative few. Why not both?

Recommended reading: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spirit_Level_(book)

It may be that indirect taxation is better, but that has to be carefully handled if it is not to be retrogressive.

The present General Election exposes the rot in our society and political system. Few real ideas (that are any good) about how to deal with what must be dealt with: health, social care, alienation, funding for government, social problems generally, mass immigration. Labour’s ideas are the best of those on offer, but still either inadequate or half-baked.

General Election analysis:

Update, 23 November 2019

The latest opinion poll (via Panelbase) gives intentions as Con 42%, Lab 32%, LibDem 14%, Brexit Party 3%, Greens 3%. Electoral Calculus makes that a Con gain of 4 seats overall, but still resulting in the Cons being 4 short of a majority.

The previous poll I saw, from another organization, and a day ahead of the above poll, gave the Cons a majority of 36! Yet the figures for that one were not far different: Cons 42%, Lab 30%, LibDems 15%, Brexit Party 4%. A few percent higher or lower, especially for Labour vis a vis Conservative, makes a very big difference.

The huge recent Con lead in the polls has narrowed (in both of those above polls) but the Cons are still well ahead in percentage terms, obviously. They do seem to be feeling the pace now, though: Boris refusing to debate on TV again. The previous debate might have destroyed Corbyn and so Labour. It did not do that.

It is very clear that Brexit Party is finished. I think that we have seen the end, not only of Brexit Party, but also of Nigel Farage. I am now expecting the effect of Brexit Party on the overall General Election results to be minimal. Opinion polling in a few Northern English seats seems to indicate that Brexit Party may take enough votes from Labour to let the Conservatives in here and there (eg Great Grimsby). Maybe, maybe not.

As to the LibDems, I think that they will end up on 12-13 December with fewer than 20 seats and possibly fewer than 10. Some commentators are predicting 30+ and one bold fellow has said 100! My own sense is that the LibDems will win a few seats but lose more, including those contested by most of the ex-Change UK defectors.

In the absence of a truly social-national party, the choice offered to the voters is dire, and the only parties really contesting the election in England and Wales are Lab and Con (I fully expect the SNP to win the vast majority of seats north of the Border).

Update, 24 November 2019

Ha ha! Farage says that “Labour is bombing all over the country” and that Corbyn is a poor leader. Well, there is some truth in both statements, but what strikes me forcefully is how lacking in self-awareness Farage is!

Labour may be (to some extent) “bombing”, but Brexit Party (or should that be “Party”) has already bombed all over the country. It started off at 15% in some opinion polls, but is now at either 4% or 3% in all the ones I have seen. It does not have far to go to reach the 1%-vote depths of the joke “parties” such as the Monster Raving Loonies and the Christian-This-Or-Thats (not to mention the fake “nationalist” joke-parties such as “For Britain”, “Britain First” etc, though they struggle to get even 1% of any vote).

[I should add that, the last I saw, “Britain First” had been deregistered as a party by the Electoral Commission anyway, so would be unable to stand candidates under a party name]

As for “leadership”, Corbyn may be no Adolf Hitler, but Farage has just betrayed his most loyal followers by standing down about 360 of them so that Conservative Party candidates (including Remainers!) have a better chance of winning the seats that they are contesting! Is that “leadership”?

Now Farage is talking about forming yet another “party”! He says that it will be a reform party to “drain the Westminster swamp” and may be called Reform Party. Now, if only he had done that 6 months ago and joined it with Brexit Party…Had he done that then, he might have been in a different and better place now.

“Intergenerational Foundation report comes as 670,000 young people registered to vote in seven days” [The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/nov/24/first-time-voters-hold-key-in-56-marginals-analysis-intergenerational-foundation

An interesting report. Hundreds of thousands of young people (defined as the under-35s) have registered to vote (670,000 in the past week alone) under the new stricter criteria. About half are under-25. Virtually none support the Conservative Party: fairly recent polling indicated that as few as 4% of the under-25s support the Conservative Party, and only about 15% of under-35s.

As I blogged recently, if those of all ages who do not vote, about a third of all those eligible, found a reason to vote, that might well change politics in the UK in a radical and even revolutionary way.

Under Britain’s first-past-the-post electoral system some votes really are much more important than others; in any given election only a small minority of the most marginal constituencies actually change hands,” said Angus Hanton, the co-founder of the IF. “Winning British elections is about winning marginals.” [The Guardian]

Of course, only the marginal constituencies really count, but if all the unregistered people (often discontented, or malcontents) were involved, many more seats would be marginal, though I understand perfectly well why many do not bother to vote.

First-time voters could unseat their MP in 56 marginal seats across the country, according to an exclusive analysis of the 1.2m new electors who have come of age in England and Wales since the 2017 general election. Thirty of these seats are held by the Conservative party, 20 are held by Labour, four by the Liberal Democrats (almost a quarter of their seats) and two by Plaid Cymru.” [The Guardian]

As stated, 670,000 new voters have recently registered, many in the past few days alone. The deadline for registration is at midday on Tuesday 26 November:

https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

Anyone 16+ can register, but only those 18+ can vote. There is therefore an uncertainty over the effect of those recent registrations, though it seems sensible to assume that most recent registrations are from intending 12 December voters.

There will be a scramble to register (which can take only 5 minutes if done online). Labour will be desperate to get as many as possible under-35s registered. The Conservatives must be hoping that few will bother. Conservative Party support is mainly from those over 65 and almost entirely from those over 45. I notice that Boris-idiot is now promising to keep the “Triple Lock” on pensions, something Philip Hammond wanted to scrap.

The 2016 Referendum had a large age division. This has now been imported into politics generally.

Those (so far) 670,000 new voters are split, very roughly, into a thousand voters per constituency. The fact that they registered recently suggests that they are intending to vote. Most (in England and Wales) will vote Labour. Few will vote Conservative.

As far as persons are concerned who have turned 18 since the last general election in 2017, they number about 1.2M people. There must be a few, perhaps several, hundred thousand still unregistered. There is a lot to play for here, in the next day and a half.

There are dozens of Westminster seats which were won in 2017 with majorities under 400: https://commonslibrary.parliament.uk/insights/ge2017-marginal-seats-and-turnout/

It can be seen that the effect of 1,000 or 1,500 new voters per constituency may be very significant, especially if most are going to vote Labour. It could change everything.

Not that I favour further reduction of the voting age. Switzerland began to decline once it

  1. allowed women the vote; but more importantly
  2. allowed people younger than 28 (the age is now 18) to vote.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voting_in_Switzerland#Voting_qualifications

I believe that the age rubric (maybe the sex bar too) was changed in the 1990s, maybe late 1980s.

I see tweets from (mainly Labour) ladies saying such things as “my son of 12 (this was a real tweet, btw) is very political and loves Jeremy Corbyn; the age threshold should be 16.” What can one say? I was quite political and also quite intelligent at 12, but people are generally immature until they are 28. I myself was. It is not so much a question of intellect or knowledge as of commonsense and a greater or higher level of wisdom than the vast majority have at 16, 18, or 21.

However, it is interesting, though disturbing, from the sociological point of view, that there is a growing infantilization of politics. Even more disturbing is that it affects the old as well as the young.

On the “Conservative” side, one sees responses on Twitter and in newspaper comments columns to the effect that, for example, if there is poverty, “they should get a job“, when in fact much UK poverty is in-work poverty (and not everyone can get work, let alone reasonably well-paid work).

On the more “Labour” side, we see remarks, for example, to the effect that mass immigration makes no difference to pay, benefits, services etc (except to improve them!), rail, road congestion etc. There is a wilful refusal to see the truth and a wish to believe that, with one wave of his wand, Magic Grandfather and/or the State can just “magic” high pay and benefits for all. “Luxury Communism”…

See below:

The “brown” (presumably a Pakistani of some type) knows more than many (typically) weak and brainwashed pro-multikulti white British people: he obviously feels that the UK belongs to the migrant-invaders like him (whether arriving in rubber boats in Kent and Sussex, arriving as “family members” at airports, as “asylum seekers”, or just born to black/brown mothers here in the UK). The w** assumes that the white man is the unwanted minority person. Soon he will be. Wake up, British people! It is nearly too late.

That charming scene from a “British” street also tends to make my point about Labour being now largely the party of the “blacks and browns”…

Update, November 25 2019

Fed into Electoral Calculus (with SNP assumed to get 50% in Scotland), that most recent poll would give a Conservative majority in the Commons of 28 (with 21 more Con MPs, 45 fewer Labour MPs). Boris-idiot would be well pleased with a majority of 28. Having said that, most polls until now have forecast larger majorities. The forecast majorities are ever-smaller (with a few exceptions).

There is one day left (exactly 24 hours at time of writing) in which Labour might encourage students and others to register to vote; the cutoff point is 1200 hrs tomorrow (Tuesday).

As for Polling Day, 12 December, there are now 16 clear days left before the polls open. Does Labour still have a chance of heading off a Conservative majority?

The minor parties (apart from the SNP) are now where they will be. Brexit “Party” is washed up completely and is very likely either to win any seats or even to be very important either way to whether the Conservatives or Labour win here or there. The best chance is probably in Hartlepool, being contested by Richard Tice, Farage’s 2-i-c. Even there, Labour probably has a better chance.

The LibDems are stuck on or below 15%. In their case, what matters is whether they can create a Schwerpunkt (concentration of forces) in any one constituency. They have a few good chances, but I still think that they will end up with fewer than 20 seats, quite possibly fewer than 10.

Labour’s chances rely on appealing to floating or new voters in marginal seats. I would not write Labour off just yet despite the dawning realization of its supporters and the public that the traditional raisons d’etre of Labour are fast disappearing, indeed have disappeared, and with them the traditional dyed-in-the-wool loyalty of the previously monolithic Labour vote in the North and elsewhere.

Labour’s policy offers are in essence attractive to many, but Labour is held back, first by its recent (past 20 years) black/brown emphasis (personified of course by Diane Abbott), secondly by uncertainty over whether Labour can deliver. Part of that is the surely correct assumption of most voters that Labour is not going to win a Commons majority (as a bet, it now stands at 40/1 on Betfair betting exchange).

It remains possible for Labour to deny the Conservatives a majority if it can get its vote out, and if the “young” (under-35s) vote in greater percentages than heretofore. If, if, if. Even here, in terms of “getting the vote out”, the Conservatives have a built-in advantage, in that a high proportion of their vote will be postal, Conservative voters tending to be elderly or at least in late middle age.

Despite everything saying “the Conservatives will get a solid majority”, I am still not sure. The “glorious uncertainty” of Britain’s electoral system, the fact that a small number of voters in a relatively small number of constituencies will decide the matter, make this still an open contest in terms of whether Boris-idiot, surely the most egregiously ill-suited Prime Minister in modern times (since the 19thC at least), will get the real power he so richly fails to merit.

It is now after 2200 hrs, so Labour has only 14 hours in which to persuade those who support Labour, but are not yet registered to vote, to register. The election result may hang on that alone.

Update, 26 November 2019

Correction: the deadline for voter registration is midnight tonight, not midday as previously thought. This could be crucial in stopping the Conservatives from getting a majority. A million new voters have registered recently.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50544602

The main news on Zionist-controlled msm (BBC, Sky etc) is that the Chief Rabbi has (not for the first time) declared not only himself and his immediate cabal but the “Jewish community” as a whole to be hostile to Labour. All news outlets are carrying this as the main news item.

CSrYbsNU8AATLhJ

DNe0-uXXcAAlTCh

The Chief Pharisee had the damned cheek to refer to “our country“, and even “the soul of our nation” (“our”?!), meaning the UK, despite the fact that he was born in South Africa and lived only in Israel and Ireland before coming to the UK in the 1990s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ephraim_Mirvis#Early_life_and_education

Hopefully, this nasty individual’s intervention will merely increase the Labour vote and will in any case awaken many naive people to the important issue of Zionist interference in our political and social life.

Not that my opinion of Labour is very high, au contraire, but in this election, looking at the possibility of a Conservative majority and an elected Con dictatorship under Jewish and Israeli control (Boris-idiot, Sajid Javid, Priti Patel, the Jew Shapps and all other Cabinet members are Zionists; some are actual agents of Israel), Labour’s vote in this General Election must be maximized.

EU Elections 2019 in Review: Labour

Labour did not do well at the EU elections: 3rd-placed with 2,347,255 votes, a 13.7% vote share, and 10 MEPs (down from 20). Labour only got two-thirds as many votes as the LibDems, and far less than half as many votes as Brexit Party attracted.

Remain whiners are saying that that happened because Labour did not proclaim itself as anti-Brexit and/or pro a second EU referendum. That is a doubtful proposition, in that it seems that more Labour voters voted Leave than Remain in 2016. What probably is correct is in saying that Labour’s message was mixed, or that Labour and Corbyn were “fence-sitting” re. Brexit (true, but what else can he do?). Parties that had a clear Brexit message (Brexit Party, LibDems, Greens) did better than those with mixed messages (Conservative and Labour). In the Russian proverb, “if you chase two hares, you won’t catch one”.

True, Change UK and UKIP had clear messages either way on Brexit and both failed miserably, but in the case of UKIP, Brexit Party simply took its votes and was seen as the bandwagon on which to jump; Change UK was just seen as a joke (there was something of that in UKIP too, it having joined with the “alt-Right” wastes of space “Sargon of Akkad” Carl Benjamin, “Prison Planet” Paul Watson and “Count Dankula” Mark Meechan).

Labour did not come in 1st place in any of the EU constituencies and, in the 5 constituencies where it came 2nd, was far behind Brexit Party (and typically with less than half of the votes of Brexit Party), with the sole exception of London, where Labour came 2nd to the LibDems (23.9% vote, LibDems on 27.2%).

Labour’s campaign was weak, and the Jewish-Zionist element was, as always, still there, sniping from cover at Corbyn and his (as far as I can see) very limited if even existent “anti-Semitism”.

Labour’s best argument in respect of Westminster elections has been, for the past 9 years, that it is not the Conservative Party. That trend has continued and strengthened under Corbyn. Is that enough?

True, Labour has policies designed to appeal to the middle-of-the-road voter (public ownership of some utilities, rail lines etc, a fairer deal for tenants, promises of more money for NHS etc).

On the other hand, if a voter wants to really give the Conservatives a kick, particularly in usually-Conservative-voting areas or in marginal Con-LibDem (Westminster) constituencies, that angry former Labour voter or floating voter might well do better to vote Brexit Party rather than Labour, because in strongly Conservative areas, Labour has no chance anyway in most years, whereas the LibDems are often the second party in such areas. Such a voter could (obviously) just vote LibDem straight off. Many voters, though, if there is a 3-way Con-LibDem-Brexit Party split (realistically), may want to vote Brexit Party rather than LibDem in the hope that a BP candidate can come through the middle to win, or because the LibDems enabled the 2010-2015 “coalition” government.

As to the impact of Brexit Party on Labour seats in the North and Midlands, I should assess it as potentially very damaging, but difficult to quantify. It is not just that Corbyn is said to be unpopular. It is also a question of Labour’s failure to stand up for (real) British people, for white neighbourhoods and communities. Labour failed to stem mass immigration and in fact encouraged it (of course, we now know from a whistleblower that Labour Jews such as Barbara Roche, and Phil Woolas, deliberately imported millions of non-European immigrants in order to destroy our race and culture).

There is also the connected fact that Labour never even admitted the nature and extent of the sexual exploitation of young girls by Pakistani gangs across the country, and particularly Northern England. In fact, Labour covered up the crimes, assisted by Common Purpose organization members in the police and in local councils.

The Labour voters who voted Green in the EU elections (held under proportional voting) will mostly return in a Westminster election (held under FPTP voting) because in the Westminster election, a Green vote is a wasted vote, without doubt.

If Brexit Party can take away 10% or more of what would otherwise be the Conservative vote, the Conservative Party is badly damaged (as when UKIP got 12% in 2015). If Brexit Party can get an overall 20%, the Conservative Party is toast except in a few very safe seats. Labour voters should therefore (whatever they think of Farage and his party) vote Brexit Party and not Labour, unless Labour is in a very strong position to win in any particular seat.

Labour has a good chance of forming a minority government or even a (small?) majority one if a general election is held soon, meaning in 2019, maybe 2020. The Conservatives are despised, divided, and weakened both internally and by the upstart Brexit Party. I blogged recently about how the Conservatives might try to limp on to 2022, when the reduction in MP numbers to 600 and accompanying boundary changes will cost Labour as many as 30 MPs. Much depends also on whether Brexit Party is a flash in the pan or a growing menace to the Conservatives.

I wrote the following after the Stoke-on-Trent by-election of 2017:

Labour has been declining for years. Corbyn is both symptom and cause. The disappearance of the industrial proletariat has swept away the bedrock underneath Labour, replacing it by the sand of the “precariat”. Labour imported millions of immigrants, who are now breeding. The social landscape becomes volatile. The political landscape too.”

I see no reason to change my view.

Update, 6 June 2019

The tweet below, from the Peterborough by-election, illustrates my often-posted belief that the Labour core vote is now largely composed of the “blacks and browns”:

More proof…

In other words, Labour is now the party of the blacks and browns.

Update, 21 September 2019

…from the Independent, “reporting” on beach patrols at Dover; all too typical of the sort of persons now prominent in “Labour” and what is left of the trade unions:

Riccardo La Torre, firefighter and Eastern Region Secretary of the Fire Brigade Union, branded the coast patrol “despicable” and said: “These have-a-go, racist vigilantes have no place in any kind of enforcement or emergency activities and will only serve to make conditions and tensions worse.”

“These groups claim to be the voice of the working class, but now they want to act as an arm of the authorities by patrolling beaches to apprehend struggling working-class people desperately trying to get to safety.
[https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/far-right-britain-first-beach-patrols-calais-dover-anti-migrant-a9113471.html]

So “Riccardo La Torre” (que?), a regional secretary of the Fire Brigade Union, thinks that migrant invaders from Africa and the Middle East are “working class people”, who are “trying to get to safety”?!

Safety from, er, France? There you have in a nutshell, the craziness that is much of “Labour” now. Alien migrant-invaders are “working class people”, who should be allowed to occupy the UK at will (and be subsidized too)! Note the fag-end “Marxism”, trying to shoehorn the facts into some 1980s polytechnic back-of-postcard Marxism-Leninism.

The UK Local Elections Have Been Held: My View

Introduction

The 2019 local elections are at an end and the results collated and endlessly analyzed in the msm. I had predicted a seat loss for the Conservatives of well beyond 1,000 seats, somewhere between there and 1,500. In that, my prediction was correct. Where I went wrong was in thinking that Labour would do well.

What I got right was the disgust and despair voters generally now feel in respect of the Conservative Party. What I got wrong, mainly, was in assuming that voters in the North and Midlands would vote Labour to spite the Conservatives, even if only as a choice between evils and not much supporting Labour as such.

The facts

The system of voting for local councillors etc in the UK is as antiquated and convoluted as one might resignedly expect: not all councils are elected in the same year, and some councils only elect a third of their councillors in any one election. Absurd.

The actual result of the election nationwide, where 8,798 seats (between a third and a half of all the 20,712 local government seats in the UK) were being contested was:

  • Con 3,562 (loss of 1,334) seats;
  • Lab 2,023 (loss of 82) seats;
  • LibDems 1,350 (gain of 703) seats;
  • Others 1,310 (mostly Independents). The Greens did well and now have 265 councillors (a gain of 194). UKIP did badly, and now have only 31 councillors (a loss of 145).

Analysis

The two major System parties are now widely despised. More than that, the political/electoral system is now despised; people have little or no trust in it or in those who are making their living from it. Those facts are reflected not only in the votes cast, but in those not cast. Turnout varies depending on the type of body being elected, but seems overall to have been only about 30%, if that. In addition, unprecedentedly huge numbers of ballot papers were spoiled, some being endorsed with the words “Brexit” or “Brexit Party” or a drawn Swastika. Unsurprising, when one considers that, in many local council seats, there was no real choice.

In many areas of Southern England, the Conservatives were not opposed by even System party opponents from Labour or the LibDems. That explains the way in which disgusted voters voted for anyone not tainted by System connections: Independents (despite most being completely unknown to most of those who voted for them; complete wild cards); Residents’ Association candidates, Greens. How though to explain the relative success of the LibDems (a System party)? How to explain the collapse of UKIP (a non-System party)? In fact, there is no difficulty in understanding those apparent anomalies.

The LibDems were obviously voted for by voters who liked the LibDems’ focus on local affairs, those who are Remain supporters voting for the LibDems as an anti-Brexit protest vote, and by those former Conservative voters who wanted to punish the Conservatives generally, but who were unwilling to vote for Labour, Greens or for complete wild cards. For those people, I suspect mainly in the South of England, the LibDems were an acceptable compromise “dustbin” vote.

The Greens were probably mostly voted for as a pure protest vote, as well as an environmentally-oriented protest vote.

UKIP lost out badly and now, out of a possible nearly 21,000 councillors, has only 31. I think that one can see why that has happened. I have been tweeting/blogging for years that UKIP peaked in 2014. Since then, UKIP has been sliding. The good, but not good enough, 2015 General Election result led to a precipitous plunge in UKIP’s fortunes. Its new leader, Batten, has slowed the plunge, but not stopped it.

UKIP had insufficient troops and funds to fight these local elections hard. It did not contest the vast majority of seats anyway. Apart from that, it is clear that the connection with the “alt-Right” wastes of space (“Sargon of Akkad” Benjamin, “Prison Planet” Watson, “Count Dankula” Meechan) has damaged UKIP badly. Benjamin’s spat with ghastly “Labour” (Labour label) MP Jess Phillips was probably a huge turn-off for many voters. This is the end of the road for UKIP, even re. the EU elections (if any are held in the UK), because defections to Brexit Party have already left UKIP with only 3 MEPs, and BP is running at 30% or more in the opinion polls, while UKIP is now down to about 3%.

Conclusion

These were elections in which voters clutched at straws, weakly trying to damage the main parties of the System. In most seats, there was no non-System candidate standing. The aftermath has been that Con and Lab are now trying to cobble together a faked-up “deal” (“Brexit In Name Only”) so that both parties can avoid having to hold EU elections at all on the 23rd of this month..

We are coming to the end of even the pretence of representative democracy in the UK. Any means will soon be entirely justified in replacing the present corrupt, decadent and totally incompetent system with a better one. The present political system is just not working.

Update and afterthoughts, 4 May 2019

There were almost no candidates ostensibly “nationalist”, still less social-national. A few did well where they stood, here and there. The standouts were Karen King and Julian Leppert, both of whom were For Britain Movement candidates..

Julian Leppert was elected for the “For Britain” party in Waltham Abbey, Paternoster ward, in Epping Forest, Essex. The one-time BNP councillor received 40.7% of the vote, 321 votes; the Con in second place got 227. Turnout was only 23%. About 808 votes were cast in toto.

Karen King, in Hartlepool, de Bruce ward, won with an even more striking 49.5% vote. “The turnout for the elections was 27.18% with 19,284 verified votes from an electorate of 70,943” [Northern Echo]. That of course relates to all Hartlepool and not simply the ward picked out, where Karen King/For Britain Movement got 694 votes, Labour 527, Con 180.

Hartlepool Borough Council councillors now consist of 13 Labour, 8 Independent Union, 5 Independent, 3 Conservatives, 1 UKIP, 1 Veterans’ and People’s Party, 1 For Britain Movement and 1 Socialist Labour Party. Such fragmentation is interesting. The old “three party” or “two party” System stitch-up is just not working any more.

Of course, readers of this blog will know that I have little time for “For Britain Movement”, and 2 councillors is a very small contingent out of the nearly 21,000 in the UK, but looking at those results in isolation, one can only congratulate the candidates.

I shall blog separately about the prospects for the main System parties.

The Train is Hitting the Buffers

The UK train is hitting the buffers. The train crash has been slow, long in coming, but it is now starting to happen.

Decades of decadence, mass immigration, political corruption, Zionist takeover of the legal system, cultural sickness in all mass media (fostered by Zionist infiltration at all levels) etc now result in manifestations that are becoming apparent even to the voting public.

The public has little idea, even now, of the causes, but it sees the effects: National Health Service creaking, beginning to fall to pieces; the housing market effectively closed to most of those who wish to buy a house or even an apartment; sky-high rents paid to speculative parasites by employees and others; congested roads and trains; cities full of those of alien race and culture; schools which brainwash children with “multiculti” propaganda and “holocaust” lies.

Those few (including me) who saw this coming as long ago as in the 1970s (in my case) or even 1960s, were and still are marginalized by a mass media system which is thoroughly corrupted. The same is true of the political system and, increasingly, of the professions, where to speak up at all invites expulsion: see

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

The Zionists are behind much of this and are now trying to shut down free speech and comment across social media– as happened long ago in the mass media.

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

The question that now has to be asked is what, in the next 4-5 years, will be the political result of the slow but accelerating collapse of British society in all areas?

It is clear that specifically English (leaving aside Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) voters are now, in a semi-rigged “First Past The Post” electoral system, voting against parties rather than for them. There is little enthusiasm for any of the System parties, let alone the more or less washed-up UKIP, Liberal Democrats and Greens, but there is determination to block parties by voting tactically for the party most likely to achieve that in any given seat.

Beyond the wish to block unwanted parties and candidates, there is a general and growing dissatisfaction. Above all, the “Middle Classes” are joining the “workers” and the marginalized at the bottom.

b-cisxdiqaa7qj_-jpg-large

That can only help Labour, despite the misgivings many feel about its MPs and leaders (the obvious example being Diane Abbott). The success of the Corbyn faction and its vanguard, Momentum, may unsettle some voters, but may give rise in others to the feeling that at least Labour is fairly solid ideologically, not a chaotic mess. That is bound to play to Labour’s advantage electorally. Contrast with the Conservatives. This cartoon portrayed the way in which Theresa May achieved office by default:

CnLGOc5XYAALLJdThe next general election will probably favour Labour, though probably not enough for it to win a majority in the House of Commons. After that, one can foresee continuing mass immigration, continuing slide in public services, continuing disparity in wealth. That will be the moment when a social-national party can strike. First of all, one must exist, however.

Social Nationalism and Green Politics

There has always been a strong connection between the current now known as social nationalism and what is now called the “green” movement.

The famous author Henry Williamson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Williamson#Politics], who lived in North Devon and wrote the story Tarka the Otter, was a member of the British Union of Fascists, visited Germany during the 1930s and was, by any other name, a National Socialist.

It is well known that Walther Darre [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Walther_Darr%C3%A9] was “green” and that he represented a definite current within German National Socialism.

The only state, to date, to have banned cruel experiments on animals outright was National Socialist Germany. The anti-vivisection law was the first law or one of the first few laws passed by Hitler’s government. Cartoons showed Goering (another National Socialist and leading conservationist) and animals saluting, with captions such as “Heil Goering!”, “Even the animals vote for the Fuhrer!” and “Vivisection verboten!”goeringanimals

A leading, though at the same time once-obscure thinker, who espoused both National Socialism and animal welfare (etc), was Savitri Devi [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savitri_Devi], whose work is now again coming to attention. Her ideas and books even have websites devoted to them: https://www.savitridevi.org/last_man_french.html and https://www.savitridevi.org/.

The connection is not surprising. What is now termed social nationalism is organic, built on the natural order and having respect for the creatures of the land, water and air as well as (contrary to Zionist propaganda) the relatively backward racial groups and peoples of our Earth. The hero Leon Degrelle [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A9on_Degrelle] put the latter point very well after the Second World War:becwoaeccaazenq

It is striking to see that there is very often an overlap, for example on Twitter, between those who are protective of animals and those who are strongly social-nationalist. Brigitte Bardot is a name which comes to mind: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigitte_Bardot.

The new society in Europe will be nationalist; it will also be for Europe’s European future (though anti-EU); it will be green and it will be socially-just.
