Diary Blog, 20 October 2021, including Ludwig II of Bavaria

Interesting film

The above film (in German, but with English subtitles) came to my attention thanks to a reader of this blog. There have been other films about Ludwig II of Bavaria, notably that of the director, Visconti: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_(film). I saw that film in the mid-1980s, but the original English-language version has been lost. The surviving dubbed versions (in Italian and German) are still available.

Ludwig II: a complex and disturbed person, but who left, famously, two great legacies— his castles, and the works of Wagner, who was supported financially by Ludwig.

What is less well-known (see the YouTube video below) is that Ludwig also did a huge amount to improve Bavaria in other ways, including the fields of education, transport and public sanitation.

Ludwig was one of two people considered as candidates suitable to be anointed as Kaiser of the united Germany. The other candidate was successful, and became Wilhelm II of Germany. The history of Germany and Europe might have been happier had Ludwig been chosen.

Wagner later went on to establish the Bayreuth Festspiel, which still exists (I myself have been to Bayreuth, though not to the Festspiel).

Why not? After all, the same number of hours could be worked; 10 hours per day. In fact, you could even have people work 3 days per week at 13 hours per day, but that might be seen as brutal, despite the great benefit of only having to work three days out of seven.

I daresay that many may question my reposting of tweets by Owen Jones (who is an ideologically-silly faux-“revolutionary”), particularly in view of the fact that he actually tweeted, some years ago, and to sinister Jewish-lobby sex pest and depressive John Woodcock (then a disloyal “Labour” MP, now posing as “Lord Walney”), that “John” should “block that guy [me]— he’s a neo-Nazi” (Woodcock complied, at once…makes one think).

My answer is that I do sometimes repost those whom I dislike or despise, if they make valid and/or accurate points. #MoralHighGround…

My assessment of Jones, from a couple of years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/04/a-brief-word-about-owen-jones/.

Much of the attack on free speech in Britain today, and for decades past, has come from the Jewish lobby. Most of the sources of msm news and comment are controlled by that same lobby, or cabal.

I myself have been attacked over the years, by fanatical Jews belonging to the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] and/or “UK Lawyers for Israel” [“UKLFI”], there being a considerable overlap in membership. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

The attacks on me did not start in 2014, and did not end in 2017. However, I am still here and, while my Twitter account was closed down at the instigation of the Jew-Zionists in 2018, my blog (started in late 2016) is still up and firing, so far.

As for the fanatics who oppose me, they all seem to be dying…; in fact, a number have already died, I believe. “Instant karma”, or just unconnected karma?

There is a huge attack on freedom of expression across the Western world (in much of the rest of the world, such freedom rarely existed anyway). Most of the attack is by the Jewish-Zionist element.

…yet Coren, a Jew, is still lucratively employed by the mass media, despite his disgusting behaviour. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren#Tweets_about_the_death_of_Dawn_Foster; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giles_Coren#Polish_controversy.

Contrast that with my own treatment— disbarred, wrongfully, for having tweeted general comments about society and politics (in the end, just 5 tweets!). In fact, all of those tweets have stood the test of time, such as the one about the corrupt little Jew, Sarkozy, and that about Jewish-lobby puppet and expenses cheat, Michael Gove (at the time, I did not know that the little bastard was (or is still?) also both a drunk and a cocaine abuser).

Note: I should add that I was actually quite wrongfully disbarred in 2016. Not my assertion alone, incidentally.

In fact, the Bar Standards Board wrote to me a couple of years after my “trial” in 2016 to offer me a “retrial” (new hearing), because I should have been “tried” before a 3-person Tribunal panel (which has no power to disbar) instead of a 5-person panel (which does have the power to disbar).

I decided not to bother with a new hearing, partly because I thought that, had it gone back to Tribunal, and had I then been found “guilty” (such terminology is not in fact used), I might have been fined, and had no money with which to pay any likely fine. Maybe I was wrong. Still, I may change my mind, just to spite (((them)))!

Further, since the notorious Henry Hendron cases, it has been accepted that a barrister not holding a Practice Certificate both at time of “offence” and time of Tribunal, cannot be “tried” at all by the Bar regulation system, let alone disbarred. I myself last held a Practice Certificate in 2008, six years before the Jews (“UKLFI”) made their complaint against me, and two years before I joined Twitter.

As said above, I may decide to have the notional disbarment deleted, just to make the point, though obviously (?), at age 65, I have no wish to return to the practising Bar (which is now a dustbin full of trash anyway).

Readers might like to note also, that (contrary to what they may now read about me, as tweeted by a few crazed and fanatical Jews on Twitter) when I was at the practising Bar, I was mentioned favourably in the main legal directories, and was commended for my legal expositions, on several occasions, by judges in the High Court and County Court. As people say today, “just saying…”.

You can see where this is going: to get your (2022? 2023? later?) “Covid Social Passport”, you will have to get a monthly or three-monthly injection of useless rubbish. If you refuse to have it, or if the State thinks that you should be “denied” it (for the wrong opinions, or for dissident activities) then no injection, which = no right to travel, work away from home, get State benefits (because unable to attend DWP interviews etc), use shops, use NHS facilities, get medical or dental treatment, participate in public political activity etc. Effectively, house imprisonment, and a lingering death, ultimately….

This is not far from the Book of Revelation “mark of the Beast” scenario…

The tightening of the screws of the new British police state. It’s pretty much in plain view now, as is collaboration of the members of the corrupt “three main parties” cabal in the Houses of Parliament. NWO. ZOG.

The Brigade uses social media such as Twitter and Facebook as well as psyop techniques to influence populations and behaviour. David Miller, a professor of political sociology at the University of Bristol who studies British government propaganda and public relations, said that it is “involved in manipulation of the media including using fake online profiles“.[25][26][27]

In September 2019, Middle East Eye reported that Gordon MacMillan, a Twitter executive with editorial control over the Middle East and North Africa, is also a reservist officer in the 77th Brigade. Both Twitter and the British Army denied that they have a relationship or agreement. Miller said it was hypocritical of Twitter to close accounts alleged to be connected with non-Western governments while having links to the British Army.[28][29]

On 22 April 2020, during the UK government’s daily coronavirus briefing, General Nick Carter confirmed that 77th Brigade are working with the Home Office Rapid Response Unit “helping to quash rumours from misinformation, but also to counter disinformation”.[30][31][32]

On 7 May 2020, The Economist interviewed Carter on the role of 77th Brigade in fighting coronavirus disinformation.[33] The Defence Cultural Specialist Unit was used to monitor the internet for content on COVID-19 and to look for evidence of disinformation related to COVID-19 vaccines.[34]” [Wikipedia]

Where I live there are few of these machines, not very many blacks or browns, and few even of white “chavscums”, so the potential for misuse is limited, perhaps. I cannot get very worked up about them, nuisance though they are. If one were to impede my quite heavy car, I think I know who would emerge the victor.

Alison Chabloz

Latest news is that (whether by malicious interference by the Jew-Zionists, or because of bureaucratic ineptitude), Alison Chabloz is not going to be released early. It seems that she will now be released having served half her headline 18-week sentence, but minus the 4 days and part-days that she served in 2020 prior to her successful appeal.

The firm expectation now is that Alison will be released from prison on Friday 28 May 2021 (i.e. the day after tomorrow).

Alison’s appeal against conviction and sentence will be heard on 3-4 June 2021 in the Crown Court, probably at Southwark.

Dominic Cummings and Matt Hancock

Looking at the circus being exposed reminded me that I have blogged about both “little Matt Hancock” and half-crazed Cummings previously: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2020/01/03/dominic-cummings-a-government-of-dystopia-and-lunacy-posing-as-genius/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/09/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-matt-hancock-story/.

The bigger picture is the totally chaotic mess now presided over by the part-Jew political chancer, “Boris” Johnson.

It amused me to see the msm tying itself in knots over the question of whether “Boris” is fit to be PM. Are there still those who believe that he is? After over two years?

..and those “erudite cretins” purport to have the ability and even right to rule over this country…

What a circus! Little Matt Hancock posing as a Cabinet minister, part-Jew chancer “Boris” posing as Prime Minister, and Dominic Cummings as “top adviser” (sole attempt at being other than a glorified office bod was being in charge of a “babyflot” airline in Russia, 25 years ago, and which folded after a single flight).

Meanwhile, there is no effective official Opposition at all.

Latest “panicdemic” news

The latest ONS survey suggested only one in a thousand people in England are Covid-positive.” [Daily Mail]. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9624453/June-21-hangs-balance-warns-Professor-Neil-Ferguson.html

“Cases” (positive tests) are increasing, but 90%+ are asymptomatic. Hospitalizations and deaths “within 28 days of test” are decreasing, fast. Despite that, those given power over the past year of panic are desperate to keep the public fear going. Put those people back in their box. Then boot the box into the sea.

I was actually disbarred, simply for posting on Twitter five tweets about society; three or four of them mentioned Jews. Draw your own conclusions…

So is the USA. So is the UK. So is France.

Perhaps so, but if the idea was to prevent “subversives” from taking over the BBC or heavily infiltrating it, the policy was a signal failure in the wider sense. The BBC, at the head of the UK msm, has been the flagship for the socio-political collapse of Britain, and has supported every rotten cause of the past 50 years.

The most necessary thing in the UK is not even, as a first step, a political purge, but a purge of the mainstream media in general. Not just lying news media and “journalist” scribblers but, inter alia, the whole range of “celebrities”, comedians, show business types etc.

Henry Hendron

Readers of my blog may have seen, in previous blog posts, reference to Henry Hendron: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

Hendron hit the headlines at first in 2016: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3580931/Celebrity-lawyer-bought-designer-chemsex-drugs-BBC-producer-killed-teenage-boyfriend-spared-jail.html

Some readers have assumed that I must have or had a personal dislike of Hendron. Not so. In fact, I had never even heard of him until I read about his Old Bailey trial, very lenient sentence, and his even more lenient treatment by the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal(s) before which he subsequently appeared.

My animus, if such it be (and incredulity), is a result of the incredible difference between the way in which I was treated (for having tweeted 5 tweets, completely true and accurate and [but] hostile to Jews or at least Jewish influence) and Hendron’s treatment for his egregious defaults, as chronicled. Read my blog post.

I also found it incredible, reading his tweets, that Hendron seemed incapable of thinking and writing logically, or of constructing a literate English sentence. However, the Bar is now a dustbin, so what more can I say? If the Bar thinks that it is OK to have, as practising barrister, someone of Hendron’s type, unable to write or argue coherently, and of (in several ways) dubious character, then that is a matter for the Bar dustbin-profession as it now is.

Now I see this: https://www.legalfutures.co.uk/latest-news/high-court-overturns-barristers-suspension-due-to-lacuna. It turns out that Hendron had his lenient Bar sanction made even more lenient by reason of the fact that, being already suspended at the time of the proceedings, the Tribunal had no power to notionally suspend him further, or indeed apply ay sanctions to him, because he was not a “regulated person” at the time.

I had an exemplary record as a barrister, received several judicial commendations, was mentioned favourably in the main legal directories, and was never suspended from practice, but when the Jewish lobby (“UK Lawyers for Israel”, nominally) instigated my disbarment (complaint 2014, disbarment late 2016), I had not been in practice since 2008, and had not had a Bar “practice certificate” since that time. The disbarment was a completely politically-motivated msm farce orchestrated by a pack of Zionist Jews (“UK Lawyers for Israel”, many of whom also belong to the malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” who have persecuted Alison Chabloz for years).

At the said proceedings (more specifically, in the considerable documentation that preceded the actual hearing), I made the point that I had not been “regulated” since 2008 (a point, I might add, that Hendron, in his own case, missed…the Counsel instructed by the Bar Standards Board —very honestly— raised it against his own interest).

I was (wrongfully) disbarred (on that basis and in any case), but (to give them credit at least for that) the Bar Standards Board actually wrote to me a year or two after my highly-publicized hearing (Google “Ian Millard barrister” and read what the msm said about me at the time). The BSB then gave me the chance to apply to have my disbarment overturned, on a basis akin to that of Hendron. I suppose that must have been somehow connected with the internal Bar fallout from Hendron’s matter.

In other words, I would still be a barrister today, had I applied. However, for me, there would have been little point, I having had no intention to resume Bar practice, though I suppose that it would have denied the Jew-Zionist pack and their “antifascist” “useful idiots” the opportunity to describe me on Twitter, frequently, and with unsurprising lack of originality, as “disgraced and disbarred barrister Ian Millard” or, as at least one mentally-disturbed Jewish woman often does, on Twitter, as “disbarred Barista“! Well, if I say so myself, I do make a rather good cup of coffee, though I have never done so as a paid occupation…

As far as the egregious Hendron is concerned, his travails continue, and he is at present again before a Bar Disciplinary Tribunal. I believe that it presently stands adjourned.

I had thought that Hendron was being given very lenient treatment because either he was (I assumed) from a very privileged background, or that he “knew too much” about illicit activities of senior members of Bar and Bench. Well, I read somewhere that Hendron went to some comprehensive school, so that would only seem to leave the “knows too much” theory…

The influence of the Jewish lobby on Wikipedia content is very obvious.

I actually did not know, until yesterday, that supermarkets are open on Good Friday now. The materialistic 24/7 multikulti society…

Well, there it is— the new multikulti panicdemic UK police state, staffed by toytown police drones. Notionally done “for good reasons”, the police and others no doubt imagine…

As with Professor Brian Cox, there are two sorts of “famous scientists”, the ones who make new discoveries and undertake research of importance, and those who are basically people making careers and money out of appearing on TV, radio, in print, and on official committees. Incidentally, if anyone knows of any great discoveries made by either Brian Cox or Alice Roberts (the latter of whom I had not heard of until 5 minutes ago), please let me know and I shall publish a few lines about it. I should not wish to be unfair. I do not wait with bated breath, however.

Yes, but…Monsieur Rentoul, those other crises were not used as a method of bringing in a police state by stealth. The Great Reset and the Great Replacement (etc). The “panicdemic” is being so used, and not only in the UK.

Well, this week I got 6/10, thus again beating John Rentoul who scored 5/10. I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 7, and 9 (and had to rack my brains to get question 10).

When I lived in Kazakhstan, in 1996-97 (a full year), I invited a friend at the Bar (let’s call him “Teddy”), a train buff par excellence, to visit me in Almaty (former Alma-Ata) by train. I found out what that would entail: a Eurostar journey from London to Paris or Brussels, then a train journey to Moscow, where he would have to change trains by going to another of Moscow’s several mainline stations. Then a 77-hour journey across the Russian countryside and then steppe to Almaty.

Like the character in, I think, one of Evelyn Waugh’s novels, Teddy thought that “abroad was bloody”, and told me that, because of his ideological opposition to the Channel Tunnel (I first heard of UKIP from him, maybe a year or two before a lady with whom I lunched told me about it), he would be unable to come. I think that the real reason was that he was nervous about negotiating his way across Moscow alone and with not a word of Russian; that, and the sheer discomfort of 77 hours on a post-Soviet express train. Thus Teddy missed out on seeing a then rather green and pleasant city full of pretty girls.

I quite like trains, though it does help, on a really long journey, if you are lucky enough to have the sort of accommodation used by the Tsars of all the Russias, or that of the Orient Express. When Andrei Sakharov was recruited to Stalin’s hydrogen bomb project, he travelled to the secret town where it was to be made aboard his own train car at the rear of a normal passenger train. The carriage contained a bedroom for Sakharov and his wife, a dining room, a kitchen operated by a cook, a lounge area, and accommodation for his several NKVD bodyguards (or should that just be “guards”?).

My own longest train journey was an involuntary one in the 1980s from Vienna to Ostend, and very uncomfortable it was. On the morning of the second day (departure having been in early evening), I got out at Cologne, wearing only a dressing gown, in order to buy pretzels on the platform. It was then that the train started to move. Had it not briefly stopped about 10 seconds later, giving me time to get aboard (non-central closing doors, thank God), I should have been stuck at Cologne Station with almost no money, no clothes, and no proper shoes; no passport either.

Deadhead MPs, An Occasional Series: The Nigel Evans Story

The above exchange reminded me of the existence of Nigel Evans [Con, Ribble Valley], a perfect candidate for my Deadhead MPs series.

Nigel Evans was born in 1957 and will be 62 within a couple of weeks of the appearance of this article. He was born and brought up in Swansea, attending what was, from 1971, a comprehensive school, attended at other times by people as well-known as, or indeed better-known than Evans, among which were numbered an Archbishop of Canterbury (Rowan Williams), at least one other MP (Julian Lewis), and —now long-gone but once a household name— Sir Harry Secombe (d.2001), singer, actor, comedian and Goon. The school no longer exists.

Nigel Evans attended the University of Swansea and, in or about 1979, was awarded a BA in Politics. His only known job before becoming an MP in 1992 is that of assisting his parents in the operation of their corner shop in Swansea. The shop operated as a newsagents and convenience store.

Evans became a county councillor in West Glamorgan in 1985, rising by 1990 to become deputy leader of the Conservative group on the council. 1991 saw Evans step down from that role.

Evans contested two seats unsuccessfully before winning in the usually safe Conservative seat of Ribble Valley in Lancashire in 1992 (the LibDems had held it for a year; Evans had failed to win the 1991 by-election).

As MP, Evans made slow but steady progress. He joined several Commons Select Committees, was PPS to three more senior MPs in turn (including the then shadow Secretary of State for Wales, William Hague) and was in the Shadow Cabinet himself during 2001-2003 (as shadow Secretary of State for Wales). I assume that he is a freemason but admit that I have no direct evidence for that.

As MP, Evans has been a consistent opponent of the National Minimum Wage (is that the small shopkeeper in him coming out?) but is perhaps best known (or was, until he was tried for male rape) for his unusual expenses, claiming up to £400 a month for mobile telephone calls, as well as claiming for no less than four digital cameras in 18 months. Having said that, Evans has been in fact one of the least expensive MPs in terms of expenses.

In 2010, Evans became a Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons. He announced that he was gay later the same year.

In 2013, Evans was charged with counts of male rape and of sexual assault (six of the latter, one of the former), involving seven young men. In 2014, Evans was acquitted at trial on all charges.

Reading the newspaper accounts (see Notes, below) and casting my mind back to TV news reports of the time, I think that Evans was lucky to have been acquitted, overall, but there it is…

I might add that the Guardian reported after the trial that Henry Hendron, a notorious gay barrister since convicted at the Old Bailey of serious crimes and yet, surprisingly (or perhaps not so surprisingly…) not disbarred (again, see Notes, below) is or was a friend of Evans and provided moral support during the rape trial.

Like most “Conservative” MPs, Evans has consistently voted to cut back help for the disadvantaged, eg. State benefits, legal aid etc. Amusingly enough, this backfired on him when he himself needed help!

In 2012 he had supported large cuts to legal aid which became part of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012; in 2018, after losing his life savings defending himself in 2014, Evans said that the experience had shown him that “It’s wrong, completely wrong, to remove people’s right to have expert legal representation … We’re definitely talking about justice being denied as a result of LASPO.[17]

[Wikipedia]

Ah, there’s nothing like personal experience to teach you a lesson…

There’s nothing much more to say about Nigel Evans, except that, judging by his TV appearances, he has arguably the worst taste in clothing of any male MP (and surely must have the worst sartorial taste of any gay MP!). I tweeted about his clothing once (though that would not usually much interest me), when I had a Twitter account, and to the effect that, on BBC Daily Politics, he looked like Phil Silvers or someone out of a Phil Silvers film. I was tweeted back by a furious member of the Phil Silvers Society!

Evans has maintained a vote-share above 47% since he became MP in 1992; his worst result was still nearly 48% (in 1997), and his latest (2017), at 57.8%, was his best ever, though still below the 60%+ attained by David Waddington in the 1980s. Evans is embedded, so to speak, in Ribble Valley, and looks set to stay until the House of Lords or the Grim Reaper beckon.

So there we are. Nigel Evans, an MP whose only previous experience was a few years as a county councillor and helping to run a corner shop owned by his parents. A true deadhead MP, whose TV appearances show him vainly struggling for mediocrity; he is therefore well-fitted for the Westminster monkeyhouse as it now is.

A comment on Twitter re. MPs, from “Old Holborn”; I think that I may add this tweet to some of my future (and even previous) Deadhead MPs articles…

I think that the answer to his rhetorical question is that so many better-qualified potential candidates, people like me, are weeded out at the MP-selection stage. They are too independent, not facilely “anti-racist” and “anti-sexist” etc, and unwilling to be controlled by a pack of Jew-Zionists. As for myself, I never thought of abandoning my principles and ideals in order to get selected as an MP, though I suppose that it would have been easy enough, if I had been willing to ditch all honour and integrity.

 

 

The Slide of the English Bar and UK Society Continues and Accelerates

[Addendum and Update, 5 September 2021: since I blogged in relation to my disbarment etc, there have been developments, some of which are covered in the updates at the foot of the original blog. However, two other important changes have been that, firstly, the Bar Standards Board wrote to me a couple of years ago, explaining that I should never have been “tried” by a 5-person Tribunal (the only type that has the power to disbar), but only by a 3-person Tribunal (which can only impose lesser penalties). The BSB offered me the chance to have my case reheard. In that event, whatever happened, I should be reinstated as a barrister.

I decided at the time not to reopen the matter. My decision was partly a gesture of contempt towards the System and the Jew-Zionist lobby that procured the “prosecution”, “trial”, and eventual disbarment. Also, as someone over 60, I had no practical use for my “Barrister” status.

The second development, arising out of one of the more recent parts of the Henry Hendron case, is that, as an “unregistered” barrister (since 2008), I should never have been “prosecuted” at all, because the relevant parts of the Bar Code of Conduct would not have applied to me on the facts. I did, I believe, make that point in early correspondence with the BSB in the 2014-2016 period.

In other words, my 2016 disbarment was not only wrongful, but actually unlawful].

When I started to blog, I intended to write about things of general or objective importance. I intended to avoid the personal and subjective. Above all, I wished to avoid mixing the objective and the subjective. However, I think that some of my personal reminiscences and thoughts might be of interest to others. I also consider that objective conclusions can be drawn about UK society from some of my experiences.

Many of those who are reading this will be aware that I was disbarred in late 2016. That happened after a group of Jew-Zionists calling themselves “UK Lawyers for Israel” (some of whom, probably many, also belong to the so-called “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism”) made official complaint (in 2014) about a number (at first, several dozen) of tweets which I had posted on Twitter. Eventually, the number of tweets comprising the subject-matter of the charge was reduced to seven. Seven (7) tweets (reduced to 5 at Tribunal) out of, at the time, at least 150,000.

Now, though I may blog in detail about the manifold injustices around my own case at a later date, my purpose today is to compare the overall “justice” I received with that meted out to another Bar defaulter recently, in order to illustrate wider points.

Now the bare bones of my own situation were that:

  • I ceased Bar practice in 2008 and last appeared in court in December 2007;
  • I did not hold a Practice Certificate after 2008;
  • I joined Twitter in 2010 and started to tweet in 2011 or 2012;
  • My Twitter profile and picture never made any reference to my being or having been a barrister (whether practising, non-practising or employed);
  • Only a tiny handful of the 155,000-200,000 tweets I had posted made any mention of the fact that I had, years before, been a practising barrister; none of the supposedly “offensive” tweets did so;
  • The tweets I posted (whether complained of or not) were all posted as part of my “personal or private life”, I having had no professional life after 2008 anyway.

It should be said (without getting too technical) that the Bar Code of Conduct was once a slim volume but has expanded into a fairly lengthy and complex code. Suffice to say that the now-usual “race and religion”, “diversity” etc stuff is now included (and I think that we can be sure what kind of persons drafted those clauses…).

In the past, a barrister’s private life was not justiciable under the Code except in a few carefully-drawn exceptions, the main one being where a barrister had been convicted of a (serious) criminal offence (parking, speeding etc excluded). The new Code, in force for a number of years, kept those boundaries but, crucially, made them advisory only, taking away the cast-iron defence that whatever was complained of had been done in the course of the barrister’s personal or private life.

At the same time, the old and sensible distinction between barristers who are in practice, or who are employed as barristers, as against those not practising, or not employed as barristers, was removed in relation to “Core Duty 5”, i.e. in effect “bringing the Bar into disrepute”.

In short, I was, in effect, “bringing the Bar into disrepute”, or so decided a Bar Tribunal panel of 5 chaired by a retired Circuit judge, when (6+ years AFTER having given up Bar practice) I tweeted the seven *reduced at Tribunal to five) “offensive” tweets (on my Twitter account that made no mention in its profile etc that I had ever been a barrister).

I should say that the presiding judge made the point in his summation and sentencing that I had had an unblemished record at the Bar throughout the years since I was Called in 1991.

Other barristers had and have Twitter accounts. Some post obscene comments, such as the “lady” QC whose every sentence contained a swear word. Many have pictures of themselves in wig and gown, or advertise their practices via website links etc (which is now OK but would have been a serious Bar offence only 20 years or so ago). None of those who have used obscene language etc (including telling people to “fuck off” etc) has ever been hauled before a Bar Tribunal, despite their proclaiming their professional status, despite having photos of themselves in Bar clothing in some cases, despite their being in practice at the Bar and talking about it and the law constantly. The presiding judge at my 5-person Tribunal called my case “unprecedented”.

There are so many examples today of barristers doing things which would have meant disbarment decades ago but which are now laughed at and even applauded. We see, for example, the Jewish barrister known to the public as “Judge Rinder” (not in fact any kind of judge) on TV, the show aping that of (also Jewish) “Judge Judy” in the USA. The barrister who plays the role of “Judge Rinder” is acting entirely within the ambit of what is now tolerated by the Bar regulators, but one could not imagine such a show on TV in, say, 1967 or even 1987.

That is even leaving aside the vulgar advertizing and self-promotion undertaken by members of the Bar in practice. That was not permitted until the 1990s. The following example of a Bar defaulter was also one of the most shameless self-promoters.

Now let us look at how the Bar treated so-called “celebrity barrister” Henry Hendron, who, despite being a horrible little bastard –from what I have heard on radio and read in newspapers (I have never met him, admittedly)–, was treated very leniently by the Bar Tribunal, certainly as contrasted with my case.

Hendron supplied so-called “chemsex” drugs, apparently used in gay orgies, to his 18-y-o foreign boyfriend, who died as a result.

http://metro.co.uk/2016/05/09/celebrity-barrister-sentenced-after-supplying-drugs-that-killed-teen-boyfriend-5870206/http://metro.co.uk/2016/05/09/celebrity-barrister-sentenced-after-supplying-drugs-that-killed-teen-boyfriend-5870206/

Hendron was ALSO found guilty, on his own admission, of failing to administer properly his chambers (which he headed as Head of Chambers) and in respect of that was fined £2,000, a trivial sum for someone who made hundreds of thousands of pounds in a year.

https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/media-centre/press-releases-and-news/barrister-henry-hendron-suspended-for-three-years-following-criminal-convictions-for-supplying-illegal-drugs/

So the Bar Standards Board and a Bar Tribunal think that a barrister and indeed head of chambers who was convicted at the Central Criminal Court of supplying illegal drugs for immoral purposes, and that supply having resulted in death (within the Temple itself at that!) AND failing to run his chambers properly should get suspended from practice for three years (in fact only two, because time was ruled to run from 2016!) and get a modest fine, whereas I, “found guilty” of having tweeted five (reduced at hearing from seven charged) supposedly “offensive” tweets about Jews, and not a practising or employed barrister at all, had to be disbarred! You really could not make it up.

This is what the Bar Standards Board official , Sara Jagger, Director of Professional Conduct, said about the Hendron case:

“A conviction for supplying illegal drugs is a serious matter. In this case, it had tragic consequences. Mr Hendron failed to meet one of the core duties of a barrister, which is to uphold public trust and confidence. The suspension imposed by the tribunal reflects this.”

This is what the same woman said about my case:

“The use of such offensive language is incompatible with the standards expected of barristers. The Tribunal rightly found that such behaviour diminishes the trust and confidence the public places in the profession and the decision to disbar Mr Millard reflects this.”

The Board’s press statement (still on its website today) also repeated the lie that my Twitter account “made it clear that” I was a barrister. An out and out lie.

Who, I wonder, would the public think less properly able to reflect the standards expected of a barrister? A snivelling, drug-taking degenerate, convicted of illegal drug supply resulting in death, and who also ran his chambers improperly, OR someone who, as part of his non-professional life and indeed post-professional life, posted seven supposedly “offensive” tweets (taking them as described by the Bar Tribunal)?

You decide.

Postscriptum: The BBC Radio 4 “PM” programme interviewed Henry Hendron in a very sympathetic way recently; the popular Press handled the story with a relatively light touch. Contrast that with the day or three of msm storm around my case last year! We can see the way society is going: downhill, fast.

Update, 26 January 2019

Now he is or has been selling “legal packages”! Perhaps he could set up a stall or barrow in one of the London street markets? Is the Bar Standards Board OK with this? Is the Bar itself OK with this?! I begin to think that the whole bloody system should be chucked into the mire…

https://www.legalcheek.com/2018/05/suspended-chemsex-barrister-sells-4000-legal-advice-for-life-on-facebook/

And what is one to make of this? He now intends to sail around the world! Hello sailor! He even has the cheek to solicit donations from the public! As for his hypocrisy, in pretending to be a “victim” of “unequal justice” when he has been treated so incredibly leniently compared to me (read the blog article, above!), words fail me…(his crowdfunding page from August 2018 raised….just £40. Seems that the public are not so stupid after all). [Update, June 2019: Hendron has now deleted all his blog posts about sailing around the world with a bumboy etc and seems to be intending to use his website to flog more “legal services”]

https://henryhendron.com/

According to the blog below, he set off in August 2018, not knowing how to sail, and had to be rescued by the Coastguard the same day…then set off again a day later…The blog writer wants him to give up his “suicidal” journey. Seems that Hendron has one friend, anyway. [see above update, however]

https://www.russelldawkinsbackontrack.co.uk/my-mates/

In fact, it seems that he survived at least until 4 September 2018 (see his blog, below). What appals me about it is the poor grammar, spelling, use of English generally. That such a person was not only treated better than me by the Bar “regulators”, but was at the Bar at all, makes me fume (almost literally). Incidentally, and as of September last year, he had managed to get as far round the globe as Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, having started off in…the Isle of Wight or the nearby Hampshire coast.

https://henryhendron.com/author/hhendron/

[see update above]

I have to wonder, looking at his obviously disordered mind and his poor use of the English language, whether there really are mugs stupid enough to want to retain him on any basis. He asks for £600 an hour. Apparently, in the past his services were utilized by Nadine Dorries MP! Comedy gold.

Ah, seems that Hendron is no longer sailing around the world, unless his navigation is up the creek (literally)…he’s in Romania! https://twitter.com/henryhendron/status/1079764170…

[again, please refer to update, above]

or was, as of New Year’s Eve. Listening to him, I have to admit that I start to feel sorry for him, so pathetic is he. Compassion is my weakness, often.

Now he is on Question Time! (ironically, I agree with most of what he is saying!)

Update, 10 May 2019

Just noticed this (see below). Made me laugh that a young (?) lady calling herself @pussycatt1984 tweeted that she wanted to have the babies of “pink jumper man”. She might be disappointed…

Update, 21 July 2019

The online legal news site, Legal Cheek, reports on Henry Hendron’s return to Bar practice, presumably operating from home or his boat (if he still has it):

https://www.legalcheek.com/2019/06/henry-hendron-returns-to-practice-three-years-after-drug-conviction/#.XQZ78yEYw-k.twitter

Another barrister does not sound very thrilled at the news (or at Hendron being described in a “newspaper” as “QC”!)…

Quite. Rather a shame, though, that Cherrett apparently does not know the difference between “practise” (as in “to practise”) and “practice” (as in “his practice is criminal”). Still, I suppose that one could be broadminded or charitable and say that, in the USA, the words are reversed…I should not want to be too much of what some call “a grammar nazi”…Oh, fuck it! Why not?! I am sick and tired of semi-educated or narrowly-educated people at the Bar (especially..) and elsewhere in good positions in this sliding country! The Bar, journalism, msm generally, Westminster.

In fact, reverting to Hendron, I was just reading a few of his recent tweets. He is at least not too bad from the political point of view:

and he seems to be an animal lover, so not all bad in that respect either, having retweeted this:

Update, 30 July 2019

Seems that Hendron has yet again been suspended from Bar practice, though only for 3 months:

https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/chemsex-barrister-suspended-again-by-tribunal/5071174.article

https://www.legalcheek.com/2019/07/henry-hendron-suspended-again/

https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/media-centre/press-releases-and-news/barrister-henry-hendron-ordered-to-be-suspended-from-practice/

So Hendron

  • supplied illegal drugs to his foreign teenage boyfriend;
  • as a result of which the boy died;
  • at a “chemsex” orgy held
  • within the precincts of the Temple in London;
  • as a result of which Hedron and others were convicted and sentenced
  • at the Old Bailey

and

  • also found guilty at Bar Disciplinary Tribunal of failing to run his Chambers (of which he was Head) properly

and now also has been found guilty by a BDT of

  • failing to pay a lay client monies
  • despite having been ordered to by the Legal Ombudsman

but instead of being disbarred, has once again been only suspended. He must really have some good contacts in the Bar establishment! Or does he “know too much”?

Still, he only did what is chronicled above (oh, and sold so-called “legal packages” to the public from a metaphorical barrow), all of which have been in the newspapers. It is not as if Hendron did something really bad, like tweeting a few critical remarks about Jews…

I was looking at a few of Hendron’s tweets from 2016 and 2017. Only semi-literate. Does he claim to have dyslexia or something? No wonder that the Bar has lost most of the prestige it had half a century ago. It is just a multikulti dustbin now.

Update, 2 September 2019

Jew-Zionist hypocrite Simon Myerson Q.C. belongs to both main organizations that have persecuted me, “UK Lawyers for Israel” and “Campaign Against Anti-Semitism” [“CAA”]. Now he is playing the Jewish “victim” because others are trying to get him disbarred for his tweets etc…Ha ha! What goes around comes around.

It must be yet another case of “anti-Semitism”!…Another Jew hypocrite. Myerson was one of those who conspired to have me expelled from the Bar, and he has been both snooping on me and trolling me on Twitter for a decade.

Ha ha!

Update, 25 October 2019

“They” are still mentioning me online, really getting “full value”…

Update, 5 January 2021

Henry Hendron wins appeal against second suspension

Mr Justice Fordham wrote: “[T]he BSB’s position is that a barrister whose practising certificate has been suspended is not a ‘BSB regulated person’”, adding that “I have heard no argument and seen no analysis to the contrary.

The judge praised the BSB and its barrister, Zoe Gannon, for telling him about the “suspended-barrister problem” even though it cost them the case. Hendron himself “had not identified it or relied on it in his grounds of appeal”.

Hendron himself had not identified it…“, Well, it is well known that “a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client“. I would not want his barrister to represent me, though! Semi-literate, and unable to identify legal issues, as well as morally suspect in various ways.

I should remind myself and my blog readers that the purpose here is not to attack Hendron but to show up the Bar itself, and to highlight the injustice to which I was subject.

I saw a few tweets from Hendron:

The “Crime Bar“?! As I said, semi-literate…

More?

I don’t care if he does claim “dyslexia”; if so, he should never have become a barrister.

As for this, what is one to make of it?

Your“? (Should be “you’re” or “you are“, of course). Calls his chambers his “office”, and seems to be in a position to pay someone up to £60,000 p.a.! Not sure that I believe a word that he says, though.

An older tweet, from 2011:

The Petersham Hotel? All human life must have been there! I certainly have been, though in the 1980s. “SS Headquarters Normandie”, as my friends and I used to call it! https://www.petershamhotel.co.uk/. Used to be a good place for a quiet drink.

Update, 3 February 2021

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9220171/Barrister-40-tells-misconduct-hearing-charges-against-rubbish.html

Looks like Hendron has finally run out of road. Not that I was ever personally hostile to him; I have never met him, and indeed only heard of him after the scandal involving his “drugs and sex” activities came to light in the Press a few years ago. My aim in the blog was to compare his very lenient treatment by the Bar with the totalitarian repression that bore down on me because I said (on Twitter) a few supposedly “offensive” things about Jews.

Update, 16 May 2021

Lest anyone think that the Hendron matters have been the only ones where leniency has been egregrious as compared to my own case, take a look at this report from 2019: https://www.legalcheek.com/2019/12/controversial-barrister-suspended-for-two-years-over-obscene-tweets/.

“Controversial barrister” merely “suspended” for 2 years. In my case, I tweeted general socio-political comments in 5 specified tweets. Contrary to the lying statement put out by the BSB, I did not “identify myself in any of them, nor on my Twitter profile, as a barrister. My tweets were not “addressed” to any particular person, either. Sentence? Disbarment.

“Controversial barrister” Barbara Hewson? Merely suspended for 2 years:

“A controversial barrister has been suspended for two years for “obscene” and “abusive” language on social media” [Legal Cheek magazine]

“Her social media activity has drawn attention for many years. In 2015, Legal Cheek reported several examples of tweets sent from Hewson’s Twitter account telling people to “grow up you cunt” and “get off my tits, you cunts”.” [Legal Cheek magazine]

“[Sarah] Phillimore has said that Hewson’s past behaviour included telling her “fuck off” and calling her a “nasty C**t” and “continually making references to my daughter when she knows full well that her tweets are ‘liked’ and ‘retweeted’ by at least one convicted and unrepentant paedophile”.” [Legal Cheek magazine]

In fact, the sentence was reduced later to suspension for 1 year, because Ms. Hewson was suffering from terminal cancer, and died of it in 2020 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Hewson]. That does not vitiate my point about the earlier leniency.

The difference between my case and hers (apart from the fact that I did not address comments to any named individual, posted only 5 tweets complained of at Tribunal, did not post anything obscene or threatening, and did not identify myself in those tweets or on my Twitter profile as a barrister)? Jews. I mentioned Jews and their behaviour etc; Ms. Hewson did not.

Any fair-minded onserver would surely conclude that Ms. Hewson’s defaults (like those of Henry Hendron) were far worse than mine; indeed, I committed no default anyway, as far as I am concerned.

Pro-Jew bias meant bias against me.
