“There is no intelligence that Vladimir Putin is unstable or in bad health, the director of the CIA has said.
There has been increasing unconfirmed media speculation that Mr Putin, who turns 70 this year, may be suffering from ill health, possibly cancer.“
In other words the Western “Judenpresse” has been pumping out its usual horseshit…
As far as the war is concerned, no big changes. However, with the supply of further long-range missiles by the USA to the Kiev regime, the logic surely points to greater and more destructive escalation. This is a race which the Kiev regime cannot win, certainly not alone, bearing in mind that Russia is not only a nuclear power but a nuclear power whose capabilities in that respect are advancing.
As far as the present battlefield is concerned, the Russian forces will be looking to consolidate gains in the area east of the Dnieper river, and particularly in the Donbass, before advancing further.
Meanwhile, Gorbachev (91 now, and in very poor health) has been for some time talking, via a trusted spokesman:
“In recent years President Vladimir Putin grew increasingly insistent that NATO is encroaching close to Russia‘s borders, and uses the possibility of Ukraine joining the military alliance as one of his many ‘justifications’ for invading.
Gorbachev said Washington grew ‘arrogant and self-confident’ after the collapse of the Soviet Union, leading to the expansion of the NATO military alliance.
‘How can one count on equal relations with the United States and the West in such a position?’ Gorbachev told state news agency RIA Novosti in December 2021, on the eve of the anniversary of his resignation as the leader of the USSR.
He noted the ‘triumphant mood in the West, especially in the United States’ after the Soviet Union ceased to exist in 1991. ‘They grew arrogant and self-confident. They declared victory in the Cold War,’ Gorbachev said.
He insisted that it was ‘together’ that Moscow and Washington pulled the world out of confrontation and the nuclear race. ‘No, the ‘winners’ decided to build a new empire. Hence the idea of NATO expansion,’ Gorbachev added.”
Russia was already on the back foot after NATO [NWO] expansion since the early 1990s and still continuing. The invasion of Ukraine was a response to that, but at the same time triggered yet more and overt NATO encroachment.
Compare that situation to what China has been doing. Following the famous dictum of Sun-Tzu, “to win without war is the supreme excellence“, China has been encroaching on the territory of not only Russia (mainly in (far-) Eastern Siberia, in the former Soviet Far East region) but also Western Europe, as well as throughout Eastern Asia and into Western Europe and even Australasia. Not by force but by guile, though.
Look around you in, say, the UK. Chinese people everywhere, in huge numbers. They are (all but a handful) not “Chinese agents” in the obvious sense. It is at one more straightforward, yet also more sophisticated, than that. Their numbers steadily increase, as does Chinese influence generally.
China thinks in millennia, not in terms of the next few years, or the next election, as is common in the West. It will be recalled that someone, I think Pat Nixon, asked Chou en-Lai, at dinner in the Great Hall of the People in Peking in 1972, what he thought of the French Revolution of 1789. The now-famous response was “it is too early to say“.
It does not matter whether Mrs Nixon’s question was either or both sincere and her own or, as I suspect, origined in the US State Department. The response is what is of importance.

The USA has supplanted the Imperial Russia of 1914 as “a colossus on legs of straw”, “ruled” by men of straw.
Kamala Harris— non-European (or only partly so). Righi Sunak— non-European. Is there a connection at this time, something to do with the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan?
Of course, it is not yet certain that Sunak will become Prime Minister of the UK; we shall see.
Of course, those pushing that agenda the hardest are far from “owning nothing”; indeed, they possess not only millions of pounds or US dollars, but billions, tens of billions, even hundreds of billions— the hypocrites: Bill Gates and his ex-wife, Jeff Bezos, Branson, bonehead “Bono”, The Harry Formerly Known as Prince (and the “Royal” Mulatta) etc.
With a couple of exceptions, the New Zealand women I have encountered have all been aggressively politically-correct (and frighteningly-ignorant) wastes of space. I wonder why.
Helen Clark thinks that cannabis use should be de-criminalized but that “the wrong sort” of opinions on social media should be criminalized. That tells you all you need to know about her.

It is ironic that those of us often accused of wanting to institute dictatorship are in the forefront of the battle for free speech, freedom of expression, reasonable civil rights.
It is the pseudo-liberal supporters of the System, such as the Jew-Zionist element, the supposed supporters of (System) “democracy”, mainstream politicians etc (including most TV “celebrities” and talking heads, most “journalists” and other scribblers, most “human rights”-squawking barristers) who are on the other side, wanting strict “lockdowns”, shutdowns, forced vaccination, control of social media, and prosecution for anything “anti-Semitic” and/or “racist” etc.
Meanwhile, winning this week’s prize for stating the very obvious— Rory Stewart:
Rory Stewart says, though slightly more diplomatically, that Boris-idiot is a narcissistic waste of space, unfit for office. True, and many of us were tweeting and blogging the same, years ago. Still, “those who live in glass houses should not throw stones“…
“Ukraine’s armed forces and regional officials say Russia is launching attacks on all fronts in eastern Ukraine in what seems to be new offensive.” [The Guardian].
I think that the Russian forces are now doing what I thought they were trying to do about a month ago, i.e. drawing a line from the coastal regions of the Sea of Azov and Black Sea up the eastern bank of the river Dnieper through Zaporozhye and Dnipro [former Dnepropetrovsk], then towards Kharkov, with the aim of eliminating all Ukrainian forces to the east of that line, then occupying all territory to the east of that line.
Once the above has been accomplished, the strategy may well be to strike north from Dnipro and west from the Kharkov area (once Kharkov is either taken or isolated), thus controlling and/or occupying almost all of Ukraine east of the Dnieper and south of Kiev itself.
Ha ha! I could not ignore that prize example of socio-political idiocy. Seems that there are still “useful idiots” around who idolize the Jew Marx. Not that everything he wrote was wrong; even Hitler said that (see Hitler’s Table Talk). However, what was, in its heyday, a serious political movement, meaning Marxism, or Marxism-Leninism, has become (gradually, since the 1950s) a farrago of nonsense play-politics, on the periphery of both events and political thought.
In the famous words of Marx himself: “…first time as tragedy, second time as farce“…
Thus actor-turned-activist Laurence Fox displays ignorance of history, ethnology, and politics, all in two short tweets. As I have written previously, you can dump Fox in the same bin as Toby Young, James Delingpole, Breitbart, GB News, the fake “Free Speech Union”, UKIP/Brexit Party/Reform Party, Nigel Farage, “Tommy Robinson”, and Katie Hopkins (etc):
Grifting wastes of space, as well as controlled opposition.
On the face of it, a tremendously-impressive large project. It may have taken over 20 years from initial detailed planning, but that is not surprising, looking at all the interchanges etc that had to be constructed. Britain can still do big, worthwhile things. What lets it down, usually, is the political and administrative leadership.
Quite a few Jews, indeed quite a few Zionist Jews, do not want that horribly-ugly architectural vandalism placed where the UK Jew-Zionist establishment apparently wants it placed.
As for English people, we do not want it there or anywhere else. It is not so much a “memorial” as (particularly right next to the Palace of Westminster) an expression of Jew-Zionist supremacism.
News from “the land of freedom”
We are in an undeclared war.
It is not only “natural immunity” that is now rather weak, but also popular immunity from socio-political craziness: Greta Nut, Extinction Rebellion, “Insulate Britain”, “Black Lives Matter”, the whole “holocaust” farrago (“gas chambers” and all…), the demonization of Russia (akin to the anti-German hysteria of 1914-18 and 1939-45), and the lionization of the corrupt Jew now posing as President of Ukraine. Etc.
A rather good version of the Nibelungenmarsch.
Was unable to make out that it was the fault of white people, so claimed to be insane.
Will be sentenced at a later date. Firing squad (in a better UK).
More “enrichment” of our once white European society.
That, and the fact that Russia is now (albeit very slowly and at huge cost) consolidating its supremacy in southern and south-eastern Ukraine.
When I had a Twitter account (a pack of Jews had me expelled in 2018), I frequently tweeted against Japanese whaling (and against that carried out by other countries engaged in commercial whaling, notably Norway and Iceland; the Soviet Union ceased its semi-secret whaling in 1973).
As the Guardian report indicates, part of the problem lay in the Japanese psychology, in resenting being told what to do or not do by the non-Japanese world. Japan needed an honourable way to stop whaling, an exit strategy enabling Japan to stop whaling, and to stop subsidizing whaling, without losing face. This is what has happened.
Japan continues to whale, but only within the waters of Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone (under the Law of the Sea), and in reality is slowly winding down whaling (along with the subsidies for it). The whales caught now are not the most endangered (such as the Blue Whale). Not that that excuses the activity, but it seems that, finally, Japanese whaling is on the way out.
English ghost story
A ghost story not written by M.R. James but featuring him as a character. Very good. The BBC should do more like this.
France 24 TV report about arrests arising from investigations into Jew and/or Israeli corruption in New Jersey (mainly Hudson County, the bit of New Jersey alongside the Hudson River opposite Manhattan).
Not only fraud and money laundering but also the sale of human organs and blood to Israel and/or to Jew and Israeli organizations in Switzerland and elsewhere.
Had this not been reported on a mainstream TV station (France 24), it would no doubt be vilified by Jewish orgs and mouthpieces as an “anti-Semitic trope” or something.
You really couldn’t make it up! Crazed “Covid” zealot so aggressively determined to exercise her —non-existent— power over a non-mask-wearing passenger, while she herself is not using her mask, shouting, screaming in people’s faces, and even spitting!
That video is an extreme example of the pathology now widespread in the USA, and even UK and elsewhere in Europe. This is what the facemask nonsense is really all about— forcing people to comply. It has little or nothing to do with public health. In Spain, they apparently even have to wear facemasks outside, by law!
The nearly two years of “panicdemic” fear propaganda and general nonsense has become ingrained in many. They now not only comply with even completely arbitrary diktats (such as the ludicrous “Rule of 6”), and moreover at the snap of the fingers from complete idiots such as “Boris” Johnson, but get very very angry when they see others refusing to jump through the “mandated” hoops.
In an irreligious age, people seek out things in which to believe, and for causes to follow, as well as for (supposed) “virtues” to display or signal.
The 20th century showed that political causes such as old-style socialism had feet of clay, and religions such as Roman Catholicism and the simplistic “evangelical” alternatives, as well as sub-religions such as cults, became mostly discredited, so we are here now in the 21st century with many floundering people desperately seeking for a cause to which to adhere.
For some, in the UK of the 1980s and 1990s, it was anti-apartheid, but the new “rainbow nation” South Africa has largely failed (in every way) since then, and there are no white people in the SA government to blame now, so the virtue-signallers have abandoned the South Africans of all races to their fate and latched onto other causes: anti-Brexit was or is one such, as was and is “climate change”, as in the worship of the Swedish autistic, little Greta Nut; likewise, the Extinction Rebellion and Insulate Britain idea that destruction of the UK as an advanced industrial economy will somehow “save the planet”.
Now such people (often the very same people) have latched onto “Covid” as their cause. The roots of it lie in their personal and group psychology and/or pathology rather than anything objective.
…and the msm are still puffing the teenage Swedish autistic, someone with no education to speak of, no scientific background, no real popular support. Yet there she sits, on the Marr show, pontificating and demanding. A puppet on a stick.
Once again, a vicious attacker, who had no reason to attack the victim, who was not even known to her, and with whom she had had not even casual conversation or interaction, is let off with a suspended sentence.
Read the report. The victim? 10 external stitches above the eye, 4 internal stitches. Blood everywhere. Pain and suffering. A permanent facial scar. Social anxiety flowing from the attack.
This is part of a pattern in the UK now. Vicious attacks, not infrequently (as here) carried out by a woman, often fuelled by booze or drugs (in this case, both), and/or with a defendant (often, and as in this case) basically crying in court and blaming “mental issues” and/or drink/drug problems for her disgusting crime.
The other part of said pattern is the undue leniency shown by judges, especially the part-time ones (such as the Recorder in this case).
GBH “with intent”, aka “s.18 GBH”, carries a maximum life sentence, and it trivializes the charge to sentence the woman here (who both pleaded guilty and accepted that her victim was, in the words of the Recorder, “entirely innocent” of any wrongdoing) to a suspended sentence.
I am not a “hang and flog” type of person, but I would have sentenced the defendant to at least a year in prison. Jez Turner of the London Forum got a year merely for urging, in a speech, that Jews be removed from the UK, while persecuted satirist and singer, Alison Chabloz, got months in prison for offending the delicate sensibilities of Zionist Jews and/or “holocaust” fraudsters via podcast discussions, cartoons and songs.
My own last real criminal case at the Bar (I mean real crime, not South West Water or Balfour Beatty failing to comply with regulation), was in a Crown Court in London in 1994, and that was also a “s.18” GBH with intent trial. My defendant had been involved in a fight with an aggressive attacker. He had thrown boiling oil over him, then stabbed him twice.
As to what sentence my lay client got (for what was almost a murder, the knife having come very close to penetrating the heart of the victim), there never was one; I managed to secure an acquittal on the ground of self-defence. He probably would have received about 5 years imprisonment from what was a very fierce old judge.
If judges (as sometimes seems now to be the case) keep letting violent criminals off lightly, especially when the defendant is a woman, society slides further down the slope to lawless anarchy.
More facemask nonsense (for the serving staff…). A puppet show.
The heir to the British throne (if it still exists by that time), who may indeed sit on that throne for a few years in the near-to-medium future, has said at the absurd Glasgow climate jamboree that the world is in the “last chance saloon“. Well, no-one has ever accused his family or dynastic line of either intellectuality or originality…
Interesting. It is worth reading the whole thread.
The “benefits” point is all but irrelevant; I do not want vast foreign-origined populations in the UK, whether they work or not. The proper point arising from the above pictures is that they show to what extent London, and much of the rest of England (Britain, but mainly England) has been totally swamped.
Since 1989 (the first year of the present 33-year cycle), the transnational conspiracy often called the New World Order or “NWO” (internationally), and Zionist Occupation Government or “ZOG” in terms of the domestic politics of various countries, has gradually disempowered the Arabs and other Muslims, while strengthening the hand of the Israeli state and (to use an old term) “World Jewry”.
Indeed, the very public proclamation of the New World Order, in early 1990, in a speech by President Bush (senior), was the prelude to the first war against Iraq, more than a decade before his son, George W. Bush, continued the assault by invading Iraq itself. The 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in Manhattan was the casus belli for war with Iraq, despite Iraq (and Iran) having apparently known nothing of it.
Israel’s main enemies in geopolitical terms, meaning Iraq, Syria, Egypt, were gradually destabilized and removed from the board, from 1989 to 2021, thus leaving Israel pre-eminent in the region.
Smaller and generally anti-Israel states were dealt with in more or less the same way: Libya, Tunisia, Yemen.
That leaves Iran as the only obstacle to Israel’s regional supremacy. Iran’s ancient history and large (and —overall— not-badly-educated) population, its oil, its industrial capacity, all make Iran a target for Israel and “World Jewry”.
It cannot be long before Israel attacks Iran with tacit or overt US support. Suitable excuses will no doubt be produced, anything from Iran’s nuclear programme to cartoons mocking the so-called “holocaust” farrago.
Once Iran is attacked and reduced (in strategic areas) to rubble, there will be a campaign to “overthrow the regime” (as in Iraq, Syria, Ukraine etc), and maybe foment a civil war.
The result, if the Israeli, American, and other Jews are successful, will be (in effect) a Greater Israel. The venal Gulf Arabs have already surrendered to Israel and its wider Jewish diaspora. Diplomatic relations, and airline flights, between Dubai and Israel, Bahrain and Israel.
No surprise to me. The Gulf Arabs worship the “Money Power”, and have little other (culture, identity, even religion) to oppose such worship. Saudi Arabia has made no public statement, but is on the same page.
Israel does not have to immediately plant its flag of conquest over the capitals of the region. Slow, gradual annexation by commerce and the Jewish-American cultural influence will do the job.
Can Iran do anything to stop the above-delineated process? I wonder.
Sabrina Miller is the Jewish Zionist girl student who was at least the figurehead behind the Israel-lobby campaign to have anti-Israel academic, Professor David Miller, sacked from Bristol University, a campaign which was successful (though the Professor is now taking legal action).
Sabrina Miller’s piece about bestiality betrays no understanding about the decent treatment of animals. As a Jewish individual, she quite likely supports (though I have no direct information that she does) the cruel Jewish practice of kosher (kashrut) slaughter of animals. If so, that is, again, hardly surprising.
I should add that she seems to imply, in that piece, that she herself might favour vegetarianism. If so, a positive tick as far as that goes.
There is an intensifying repression of free speech in the UK, particularly when it comes to any mention of Jews that is not laudatory, so I suppose that I must not draw too wide a set of conclusions from the above…
It is not November yet. It is true, though, that poppy-wearing is dying out.
Remembrance Day, or as my maternal grandmother [1900-1988] always called it, in the old way, Armistice Day, was a creation of the First World War and its aftermath, kept going after 1945.
There are now no British people alive who were alive during that first terrible conflict, and none who were much more than children during the second.
There is, of course, another aspect, in that the burgeoning population of blacks, browns, and those of mixed race etc have no real organic connection to England or Britain, so naturally feel no nostalgic emotional need to wear a poppy.
I have now seen part of the first episode, about 20 minutes. I do not usually have the patience to keep watching after a poor start.
Pretty poor; in fact worse (as entertainment) than I had expected. I may see some more at some future time, but I doubt it.
Various critics, including some Jews, have apparently not been hugely impressed by the plot, let alone the details.
I should imagine that the series will sink without trace.

Greta Nut (again)
I made the mistake of switching on the car radio this afternoon. The once-interesting (long ago) PM show. 10 minutes was enough. “Covid” nonsense, “COP26” nonsense, and little else. Turns out that Greta Nut has been interviewed (again?) by Andrew Marr.
Incredible. What other poorly-educated, mentally-afflicted teenager (who has actually done nothing anyway) gets respectfully interviewed by someone who is (rightly or wrongly) a major msm current affairs bod? Why should anyone be interested in what Greta Nut thinks about US Government policy? PM presenter Evan Davis then referred to her as “Greta”. She thus joins the select few known universally by first name, such as “Boris”, “Fidel”, “Jesus” etc.
This is a farce, but of course is just part of the propaganda campaign internationally. “Greta” has no more part to play, of her own, than does a ventriloquist’s dummy.
I recall having a 45 rpm disc of that in 1971. The TV series had been on not long before.
Why actually have such untermenschen in our society at all?
I want to create a more evolved, “higher” and/or “better” society. That requires a population of highly-evolved people as a foundation. Britain, though, is struggling with literally millions of backward humanoids, who have no place even in our existing society, let alone a more advanced future one.
Read the above, and say whether a suspended sentence (for all three defendants) was the right choice…
The sentencing judge said:
“(Your victim) was bullied mercilessly over the course of a protracted and persistent incident.
“You Moore, hit her, and her nose started to bleed. You, McCrudden and Hallam then persisted in a significant and violent assault on her, during which she had items thrown at her.
“She was at one point forced into a cupboard where she was required to stay for 20 minutes. She was ordered into a dog cage but she did not go. She was ragged around by you, Moore.
“Also, not by either of you, she was kicked in the head while she was in a ball.
“This was cowardly behaviour by three people on one person, which was prolonged, sustained assault by all three females present.
“As a result she was a complete mess. She left the house with half her clothes missing, bleeding and bruised.
“It was aggravated by the gratuitous degradation that she suffered and it was an offence committed while all three of you were under the influence of drink and drugs…
“I have no hesitation in considering the offence so serious that only a custodial sentence is appropriate – this being a sustained and serious assault.” [Daily Mirror].
How on Earth can a suspended sentence ever be right in such a case? Answer: it cannot be. That judge said the right things, but (like many others) failed to follow through. The defendants were also both drugged and drunk at the time, a fact which (as in the old Soviet Union) should be regarded as having aggravated their culpability, and should have resulted in a harsher sentence (The judge did make that point, but empty words are not enough).
The British people need something better than this.
God…look at that bunch of clowns…made even more risible by the stupid facemasks. What a pack of cretins.
Jesus H. Christ! The UK has wasted tens of BILLIONS on “Covid” stuff (unused pop-up “hospitals”, the £37BN test and trace fiasco, the facemask nonsense, all the unnecessary restrictions…and here is a 29p tablet that cuts hospitalizations by a third!
…and the puppets, and “useful idiots”, who pull in the punters— Greta Nut, Extinction Rebellion, Insulate Britain (etc).
At first, I regarded Professor Ferguson as merely a silly and ineffectual dummy, a view reinforced by the msm kefuffle about his antics with his married “ho” and her illicit visits etc, but now that he has been neither sacked nor (universally) laughed at, and now that he is still being reported on as if he is a serious person, I begin to wonder whether he is not more closely or consciously tied into at least the “biosecurity” part of the transnational conspiracy…

I was unaware that the Assange extradition hearing was happening. John Pilger [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Pilger] weakens his case by describing Mike Pompeo as a “Herman Goring lookalike“. It is disappointing that Pilger, a journalist for 60 years, misspells the name of a major 20thC figure, Hermann Goering (double “n” in “Hermann”) or Göring.
As for other similarities, there are none. Goering was one of the most cultured members of the generally high-quality NSDAP government of the Reich 1933-1945; Pompeo is a crazed “evangelical” American pseudo-Christian with little culture, and little obvious intelligence outside the purely technical.
I had not taken much interest in Pompeo until today. I have just been reading about him on Wikipedia. What a total loony!
Where will those Americans go? Perhaps it depends on whether they prefer borshch, kim chi, falafel, or chicken soup…
So…a reveller in Ireland has to wear a facemask while standing, or sitting, or arriving, or departing, until or unless actually eating, drinking, or dancing. For me, the prospect of going voluntarily to a nightclub, especially perhaps an Irish one, is unappealing anyway, as well as being a very very remote possibility, but this nonsense will surely put off even those who might enjoy such a ghastly form of diversion…
Another piece of System (NWO/ZOG) propaganda. Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan (conspiracy).

Exactly. As said on previous occasions, emotion trumps thought, and the unconscious Will trumps both.
In the case of the “panicdemic”, fear was engendered in early 2020, and driven up to hysteria. Many “bought into it”, psychologically and now live with that fear. I myself have recently seen idiots standing on a clifftop overlooking the English Channel, in 20 mph or higher winds, and wearing facemasks…
What strikes me as crazed is that, firstly, students “reported” (denounced) a fellow-student for stating a simple fact, and, secondly, that the university then sided with the denouncers! Like a Komsomol witchhunt in the old Soviet Union…
The part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer currently posing as Prime Minister is planning to repress freedom of expression even further in the UK. He is supported in that by Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer and his declining “Labour” pack of idiots.
Starmer: “Dangerous algorithms on Facebook and Instagram, and Hope Not Hate have shown me an example of violent Islamism and far-right propaganda on TikTok.’
He called on the Prime Minister to ‘commit to bring forward the second reading of the Online Safety Bill by the end of this calendar year’, adding: ‘If he does, we’ll support it.’” [Daily Mail].
The bastard is taking his “facts” from the malicious and misnamed Jew-Zionist snooping organization “Hope not Hate”!
Here we see the complete fakery of so-called “democracy” in the UK: repression of free speech rolled out swiftly, with the so-called “Opposition” mostly voting with the Government (of clowns). “Democracy” in the UK is a complete sham.
“Zionist Occupation Government” is not just a phrase or a “conspiracy theory”. It’s fact. It’s right in front of us.
Glasgow is not the only area badly-administered. I have just had a ghastly and (in the end) 2-hour roundtrip, unavoidable and made awkward and irritating by several simultaneous lots of roadworks (I suppose at least some of the roads are being repaired), both in the country and in a small town.
How is it that (especially in respect of smaller roads), repairs have evidently not been carried out for years? I saw tiny lanes never seen by me before , many with terrible surfacing, road bumps and potholes. Even at (at times) 20 mph, a journey of bumps and jolts.
To make it worse, I turned on BBC Radio 4, which had a programme of such surpassing awfulness that I looked it up when I arrived back at my very humble abode: Laura Barton’s Notes on Music. The only reason I did not snap it off was because I wanted to know when it was midday (I sold my watches long ago, and the clock in my old car no longer works).
Does anyone not trapped in a traffic jam (or similar chaos) actually listen to Radio 4 any more?
There were compensations today, though. At one point, a stag, not large but with impressive antlers, crossed the road not far ahead of me. Fallow deer.
Still, despite that pleasant reminder of the animal kingdom, I had time to wonder why nothing seems to work in England any more, and why everyday life seems to have become unnecessarily complicated.
A sneak has reported the radio presenter James Naughtie to the police for drink-driving. Read the above report.
The facts were that said sneak observed Naughtie downing a glass of Chardonnay, and even went into the pub garden to watch him, before reporting the matter to the police (and taking a picture of Naughtie’s car).
Naughtie was then confronted at his home (or one of them), and blew a mark of 35, which would be borderline in England, where the limit is 35 (and would have been below the legal limit by the time a court-admissible sample was taken at a police station), but is well above the legal limit in Scotland, where that limit is 22.
Now I would not complain about this had Naughtie (or anyone in that situation) been plainly legless, but the man had only had one or two glasses of wine!
Time was when (in both England and Scotland, I think) the sneak was despised rather than admired. That was then. Now there are a whole host of petty sneaks and denouncers all too ready to, as the Australians now apparently say, “dob someone in”.
You see it all the time on Twitter and other social media platforms, the denouncers (often, though not always, Jewish), whose whole life seems to revolve around “reporting” people to (say) Twitter, or to employers, or to professional organizations, or even to the police. Pathetic.
Incidentally, I do not make the above points because I am a drink-driver. I can probably count on one hand the number of times (over about 25 years) when I have driven —probably— over the local limit; at least three of those times would have been in the Caribbean, maybe once or twice in the UK. In fact, I rarely drink (even one glass) and drive now, so I am not pleading in my own interest at all; I just despise the “informer” type.
Final point: I never liked Naughtie’s radio persona or views much, so I have not written the above because I favour Naughtie himself.
Yet the mask zealots rule supreme on Twitter (though not in the real world). Many are are still pushing for renewed facemask nonsense, the plainly not very effective vaccinations, strict social distancing etc etc. It makes me wonder, not for the first time, whether there is not a psychological basis for their zealotry and unwillingness to move on. Many are also the hardcore “rejoin EU” types, such as those “FBPE” idiots you see on Twitter.
Off the Cluff
Memoirs of oil and publishing (etc) tycoon, Algy Cluff. The book looks interesting, but seems to be unavailable on Amazon, despite having an entry on that site. Is that because the Foreword is written by Taki, who is a bete noire of both the “woke” and the Jews? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taki_Theodoracopulos. Maybe, though, it is because there has been too heavy a demand; the book is not on retail sale until next week.
While Tang’s businesses are or were not the sort of places I usually frequent (I do not really like to shop anyway), I have in fact been to what was his flagship Hong Kong store, Shanghai Tang, in 2006.
I was in Hong Kong, getting some suits, jackets, shirts etc made at the famous Sam’s Tailor [https://www.samstailor.com/— I recall talking, about racing, mainly, to the present owner, whose photos are on the website, and who is the son of the one who was the owner in 2006].
Among the many items (all custom-made/bespoke) I bought was a very nice Chinese dark blue silk dressing gown with Chinese symbols on it. I asked if I could have made a similar but rather smaller one in another colour for my wife, as a present. They demurred because they would be unable to measure her (I was in HK alone). They were quite firm about it, even after I pressed them, so I asked where I might get one for her. They said Shanghai Tang. I went there.
Well, I did find a suitable but ready-to-wear dressing gown for my wife, and it was actually far better quality than my (still good) one from Sam’s Tailor. It was also far more expensive— about 15x the cost, in fact. That’s life…
I hope that I shall be able to read Cluff’s book; it sounds like it might be an interesting read. Apparently, Tang once tipped a waiter at a casino USD $90,000! Talk about playing the big shot!

A 1930s Agfa-colour film showing Berlin at the time of the 1936 Olympics, suggested by one of the regular readers of this blog:
Only three years into the currency of the NSDAP government! Imagine that! Boris-idiot has been (posing as) Prime Minister of the UK for nearly as long, and the Conservative party has been in office in the UK for some 11.5 years…
Another similar film?
In this case, not colour film, but more recently colourized.
More? In the following case, not moving pictures but some still colour and b&w photographs.
Pity about the repetitive soundtrack of that one, though.

It is absurd that we now have GPs who work 2-3 days per week in some cases, and yet are paid over £100,000, particularly when many see few patients face to face.
Published in the interest of open debate, without (necessarily) being endorsed by me. In any case, I am no medic.
Goodbye, decent British policing, hello maladministration, corruption and many other evils.
If Greta Thunberg did not exist, it would be necessary for the international conspiracy to invent her. Oh, no, wait…
Another interesting video
Tweets seen today
I did not know that that trial had started; if it has concluded, I have seen no report of it. As of today, she is still tweeting:
I hope that the Welsh teaching contingent teach the children of Wales how much better Africa was when Europeans ruled most of it. Especially between 1945 and until European colonies ceased to exist in the 1960s and 1970s. I doubt that that will be taught, though…
Claudia Webbe is ignorant, and as thick as two short planks.
If people never speak, they cannot spread “subversive” ideas such as free speech, freedom of expression, or the idea that Europe would be far better without (((certain elements))).
I rather like the tweets of @EternalEnglish. I urge any readers with Twitter accounts to follow that account while they can, before (((the usual suspects))) have it expunged. I might not agree with all of what he says, but, adapting the lyrics of “Meatloaf”, “nine out of ten ain’t bad”.
When I was a barrister practising from chambers in Exeter (2002-2008), I had contact with some of the Devon (and East Cornwall) hunting/shooting country set. Not necessarily “bad people”, but not particularly “good” either. Overall, just rather backward in terms of attitude, I should say.
(Q: is “laughter the best medicine”?)
I am no medic, but there has been, from the start, something not right about the whole System narrative around the Covid-19 “panicdemic”.
First of all, in early 2020, we were told that this was something almost akin to the 1970s British TV series, Survivors (no relation to the funny Alison Chabloz banned song of the same name): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivors_(1975_TV_series); incidentally, writing this, I notice that Survivors was remade in 2008, still with the same idea, i.e. that a Chinese lab releases a deadly virus, which spreads worldwide, changing everything…makes you think.
So, anyway, we were all thoroughly frightened in early 2020. However, measures such as the facemask nonsense were not implemented in the UK for about another 7 months. In some parts of Europe, notably Sweden, there was no panic, no facemask nonsense, all the bars and offices stayed open, and —quelle surprise— outcomes were better than in the UK and the other panicked parts of Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Belgium etc).
Since then we have seen that, in the world as a whole (even on the very inflated and misapplied statistics used), maybe 5 million people have died of or, rather, with “the virus”, which figure sounds huge but is out of 8 BILLION people. In other words, roughly one person out of every 1,800.
In fact, most of the deceased had other life-threatening problems anyway, many have been very aged (thus with low immunity), and many have become part of the death-statistics simply because they had (unreliable) positive tests for “the virus” up to a month prior to their death (which might even have been in a car accident). Absurd.
The UK is now going to be hit with poverty and restriction thanks to the policies applied for nearly two years by part-Jew chancer “Boris” and Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak. Pensioners are going to be hit as far as they can be without alienating their mainly pro-Conservative Party votes entirely; taxes overall will be increased by stealth as far as possible.
Huge amounts that could have been spent improving infrastructure and/or the environment have been just squandered on nothing much, squandered for no reason.
The crazed “furlough” payments and other policies did not come free of charge, though the masses probably, in fact clearly, assumed that they did.
Interesting. Even less favourable than I would have assumed. A small sample, though.
A far larger sample than with the previous tweets, but once you adjust for the inbuilt Remainer bias on Twitter, the result is, in reality, probably not far off 50-50 again.
Keep chucking a few msm crumbs at Ash Sarkar and her cohorts, and the System will have no trouble from them, none at all. Give her a regular TV slot, and she will say (and probably do) almost anything…
Meanwhile, and while free speech in the UK is being destroyed by, mainly, Jew-Zionists, the BBC has seen fit to make a TV drama series, Ridley Road, portraying Jew terrorists, gangsters, and other thugs of the 1960s, as heroes.
Britain: the view from New York
A girl I once knew had a Jamaican record, the lyrics of which went something like “Execute de corruptors!“…
As Labour is now, its only hope of office is to get within about 50-60 seats of a Commons majority, and then to make a compact of some sort with the SNP and its MPs (numbering, at present, 45). However, the SNP would only make such a compact on the firm understanding of an early Indyref Mark 2. If that were to happen, and if, then, the SNP won such a second “indyref”, then the UK would break up, the SNP would no longer be in the Commons at all, and Labour as a party of government would be history.
Good point from Hitchens here. The point is valid also in respect of the Second World War. In the UK, great strides were being made in the 1930s in the areas of town planning, housing etc; the Depression poverty of the North was certainly not replicated in the South of England, generally speaking, certainly not in the late 1930s. The War spoiled much of the good that was happening. Britain only started to recover from its pyrrhic victory from or after 1955.
Parliament, both Commons and (ludicrous) “Lords”, is now full of trash; a situation which has steadily worsened since 1989. We are, incredibly, in a crazy world where the likes of Jess Phillips and Lisa Nandy are spoken of as potential Labour leaders, and where a part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer and self-promoter has somehow become leader of the misnamed “Conservative” Party.
The mother of the murdered black boy, Stephen Lawrence, and by reason of that, now sits in our upper legislative chamber, as does Michelle Mone, a woman who, off the back of an eventually-insolvent bra company, presented herself to cretinous David Cameron-Levita as a great success story. Now “Baroness Mone”. Just a couple of examples. There are many others, such as half-Jew, half-black ignoramus, “Baroness” Oona King, one-time MP, whose autobiography is truly cringeworthy. Sadly, my review on Amazon (along with all my other reviews) is no longer available by reason of Jewish-lobby whining against me.
Parliament is now, like much of Britain, a dustbin.
Incredible. Hard to believe how a part of a simple straw basket, maybe 1,500 or so years old, can bring the past to life.
Well, either my brain is wired differently from those of the majority, or that theory does not work, because I came up with “potato”, which is not the expected answer…
He might have been at home in the Britain of 2021. Still, I should not be too harsh in judging the Cardinal. After all, he shares his “Sun sign” (Virgo) with me, and is thus —as far as I know— one of the relatively few Virgoan rulers (he was, in effect, a ruler) in history, Elizabeth I of England being another.
On a superficial look, extreme, but then look again at what is actually happening, not only in Greek (South) Cyprus but in Australia, France, Canada etc. An attempt by the State to deny the most basic services to those who refuse the vaccine(s). Even in the UK, there are now difficulties in accessing medical (NHS) services if the patient is not vaccinated. Travel? Worse.
This could be an early “dry run” of what will later appear in world history as the wraparound “mark of the Beast” state, as foretold in Revelation.
