“[Rachel] Reeves said: “What I want to see is people who are already in Britain being trained up for the jobs that are available in the economy… there are many people who are not in work who with the right support, could get into work.
She threw her weight behind plans to devolve back to work support to town halls, with localised drives to get people off benefits and back into work as part of a focus on “incentivising people“.
There is no real difference between the drivel spewed out by Labour Friends of Israel MP Rachel Reeves and that emitted by Conservative Friends of Israel MP Iain “Dunce” Duncan Smith over the past 13+ years.
“Localized drives” to harass the unemployed and/or disabled, and to take away the tiny incomes (from the State) that they need? Sounds as if any people without high income or capital voting Labour-label will be turkeys voting for Christmas…
“German investigators are pursuing leads which could implicate Ukraine in carrying out the mysterious Nord Stream pipeline blasts last September, according to a new report.”
Take away Zelensky’s ricebowl. Why start a world war for a pack of corrupt Jews in Kiev?
Always remember “the men behind the wire”…
Idiots such as “Boris”, Liz Truss, and now the Indian money-juggler, Sunak, have been busy painting a big bullseye onto the UK…
Look at Ukraine under Zelensky’s regime— no economy left, except for harvesting grain and potato, pensions and State employees only getting paid because the West, mainly USA, is squeezing its own taxpayers for this garbage. “Ukraine” only has arms and ammunition because NATO states and others are funnelling them to Kiev free of charge. The Zelensky regime has shot or arrested opponents and dissidents, closed down trade unions and critical newspapers. As for ordinary justice, young girls suspected of shoplifting get sellotaped to trees on city streets and verbally (and maybe physically) abused.
Ukraine, as it now is, is a “failed state” in all ways.

The UK police, many of them, are far more interested in doing fake “communitarian” things than doing their proper job, “proper job” meaning deterring or investigating those old boring crimes such as murder, other offences against the person, crimes of acquisition etc.
No, all too many of them have embraced all too readily their new role of being the militia of a toytown “woke” police state, and a poundland KGB, snooping on tweets and other online material (whether they understand that material or not). Still, what goes around comes around, in the end…
The above clip is a typical example. The police in question are chatting about (?) football or (?) Eurovision, and are ignoring the unlawful blocking of the road… until their chat is interrupted. Then they take action, but against a victim of the malicious little pseudo-eco mob, not the mob itself!
Sometimes you can just see what may well happen not far down the road, and if the police fail —continue to fail— to stand with the British people, they themselves will fall victim.
Virtually subhuman. Drop him and the whole troop down a black hole.
Actually, I admit that I am wrong. Not “virtually“…
Many very silly people think that the Suffragettes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suffragette] were justified in their “direct action” programme, a kind of low-level “terrorism”, because without it, women would never have been granted the vote. The only thing about that, though, is that it is not true.
Still, she and her sister, and the husbands of both, have a “nice little earner” going on: both sisters are “Labour” MPs, and the sister is married to yet another Labour MP, while Rachel Reeves’ husband is also well-embedded in the present System: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Joicey.
Add up the salaries of that quartet, their personal expenses, their “perks”, and their various other income streams, and you are probably looking at £1M-£2M p.a.
I am now old enough (66) to remember when “Labour” was at least notionally connected to “the working man”, or what were once called (by Labour MPs) “working people“.
Say what you want about Erdogan, he hustles, in the American phrase.

While I do not belong to, or even converse with, Patriotic Alternative, they seem to be, at least partly, on the right path. The fact that the evil —and misnamed— “Hope not Hate” crowd are stridently opposing them is a good sign, arguably.
As for System-connected invaders (including those born in the UK), of course they will be given money, jobs, gongs etc, just as the mouthpieces of the East German (DDR) regime were…until that regime collapsed in 1989. Something for said mouthpieces (in the UK today) to reflect upon, perhaps.
Hard to believe that anyone would think that stupid, cruel, and clueless Dunce (Duncan Smith) would know “what to do”, care about the problem, or have any idea how to run anything.
£15BN is not much in governmental terms; to take one example, £38BN was completely wasted on the “test and trace” nonsense, not even including the other “panicdemic” “measures”.
Dunce Duncan Smith has never been punished for his evil actions. The same goes for his part-Jew bosses, George Osborne and David Cameron-Levita, and their many satraps.
Dunce was also an outright and literal fraudster, who got several tens of thousands of pounds annually, on his expenses, to pay his wife for work she never did. A flagrant fraud.
MPs in a corrupt Parliament of this sort understand only one thing, but I am “not allowed” (under the present repressive laws on free speech) to specify it.
In the old phrase, you get nothing for nothing…
I ask, not for the first time, does Canada not have even one person who can deal with this situation?
One wonders why, in this age of superficial iconoclasm, these antiquated figures (bishops) and organizations (churches) still command at least pro forma respect in the msm. I suppose because they always endorse every mad or evil trend the conspiracy wants, from “Black Lives Matter” and climate change via CO2 emissions, to “anti-racism” and all the other nonsense around, including the “holocaust” farrago and the “Covid” panicdemic propaganda and, of course, the “right” of women to become “priestesses” and crazed woman bishops.
A few thoughts about the hot weather
I have lived and worked in, as well as merely visited, various countries, both those which are usually hot and those which are hot only in summer: USA, Australia (where I was at school for three years), a few parts of Africa and North Africa, Turkey, the Caribbean, Kazakhstan, Russia, and of course European countries.
It is hard to come to a firm conclusion about climate from personal experience alone. That is especially true when other factors than temperature come into play: humidity, air flow, the difference (if any) between temperature in the day and after dark.
Age is certainly a factor. Children are often more accepting of hot weather, though many old people enjoy at least sunshine, if not fierce blazing heat.
For myself, I find that age makes hot weather less tolerable, especially when combined with high humidity.
Is the British weather less tolerable now, as compared to, say 1976 or other noted years? As a matter of fact, I would say that it is, possibly because the very hot weather at least seems to continue longer, indeed almost endlessly. In 1976, I was 19, so more resilient to heat than I now am, but I lived in London throughout that famous summer, and did not find it too difficult, despite its duration (longer than the present heatwaves).
I have not examined in detail the statistics of temperature etc, but we do seem to be having more hot and very hot days, days when the temperature is above not even 20C, but 25C and even 30C.
As to “climate change”, my own view is that there has been a change: Australia today, meaning Sydney and other Eastern seaboard regions with which I and my wider family are familiar, is far hotter more often than was the case in the late 1960s when I was a child there. What is driving the change is (in my view) uncertain. If it is said that CO2 emissions are the cause, then the UK or even all Europe making changes will be of only limited effect anyway. China and India are the big emitters as well as the big polluters, and they are not going to change what they do any time soon.
For me personally, I just look forward to next week, when the forecasters predict cooler weather, with rain, in southern England.
Because many, especially in the Anglophone countries, are more interested in whether “their” “national” football, cricket, rugby, American football, tennis (etc) “heroes” (even if non-white) win some sport competition or other than whether there exists free speech, national progress, or anything else.
The multiple agendas being pushed become ever-more blatant, but merely tweeting and blogging will not actually defeat the evildoers.
I have no further news of the persecuted satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, currently in prison after having been sentenced to 18 weeks’ imprisonment for contravention of the notoriously bad law, the Communications Act 2003, s.127.
The imprisonment was the result of years of plotting by the malicious Jew-Zionist cabal known as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”].
The sentence of 18 weeks is in fact about 7-8 weeks after taking into account normal and particular discounts and reductions. Alison has so far done about 2 weeks actually in prison (as of Wednesday 14 April 2021), and will in any event be released sometime late next month. In the meantime, her trial Counsel is thought to be applying for bail on her behalf (pending appeal). The progress of that application and that of her appeal lodgment is at present unknown to me.
Should anyone wish to send Alison a card, letter, or book, the address is:
Please note that any books should be *paperback, *new, and *sent direct from Amazon or other online seller. Please remember always to include the prisoner number (A6478EK).
“Jewish officials” in the (renamed) Front National?! Non, non! Very disappointing (though not surprising).
I think that many did “enjoy” aspects of the initially-strict “lockdown”. Several reasons. Life was simpler overnight, in a world and a UK which seemed, and now again seems, often too noisy, complicated, stressed.
The iniquitous “British” so-called “long hours culture” (that in fact started to appear in the early 1980s) is part of that “society under stress”.
Then there is the fact that the now-ubiquitous “pleb”/”chavscum” element (both poor and not so poor) was stopped from driving around, crowding into places, beaches and country areas and, indeed, shopping areas. Same applies to the blacks and others in the larger urban concentrations.
Less road traffic meant that Nature could come back in a way many (including me) liked: birds, animals. Where I live is a semi-rural part of England anyway, but the effect was still noticeable.
Also, many people suddenly did not have to attend boring jobs in offices, factories, hospitals (yes, many NHS people too worked from home), pubs, restaurants. Many “worked from home”, which especially for those with comfortable detached houses, maybe with pleasant gardens, swimming pools etc, was a welcome change from the daily commuter grind.
Most of those unable to work from home were chucked furlough monies amounting to —again in many cases— 80% of their net pay, which taking into account commuting costs etc, meant that quite a few were better off than they had been when actually working!
Even those forced to rely on State benefits were better off, inasmuch as the post-2005 and then post-2010 bullying and harassment regime instituted by such as Alastair Darling (“Labour”), Iain Duncan Dunce Smith, and the Jew “lord” Freud was put on hold for the duration.
Of course, I was impelled to oppose “lockdown”, because of the enormous damage that it has caused to the UK’s society and economy, as well as to any notion of properly passed and applied law and civil rights (and because it had little effect on the spread, over time, of the dreaded virus), but there is no doubt that some aspects of it, on the ground, were welcome to many.
The challenge, of course, is to create a society with the positive aspects but without, as far as possible, the negative.
“Pointless” from the point of view of “keeping the public safe” but certainly not pointless from the point of view of the secret cabals hiding within and behind the State.
A “vaccine passport”, “track and trace” etc are very very useful tools in the armoury of State snoopers. The old Stasi, in the DDR (East Germany), would have fallen over itself to get hold of such tools and technology. Every citizen to be registered, tracked, identified in all locations visited, followed everywhere by electronic impulse (in the near future?). A microchip under the skin? Don’t say, “no, that would never be done” or “people would never stand for that!”… The mass psychological experiment of the past year or so has put paid to such complacent certainties.
Hitchens may be right in some Oxford Union, theoretical, newspaper scribbler way, but is wrong in practical terms.
Workhouses, appalling prisons, low pay and no employment rights etc have all been features of British life in recent centuries, as has been detention for political purposes without trial (in both the First and Second World Wars). The Bill of Rights and Magna Carta did not much help those who were directly affected by the foregoing.
I have complained in this blog previously about how poor the BBC World Service now is. It surpassed itself (negatively) last night. First, a report about an Afghan journalist who decided to relocate (illegally) to Europe with his family. Apparently, the family are now in Europe and their favoured destination is now Finland. Supposedly “refugees” but really economic migrants.
Then there was Outlook, once (long ago) an interesting show, but this time we had an interminably long (it seemed; in fact about 30 mins) story about an unfortunate man whose useless mother had given him a whole raft of neuroses.
A report about a Ugandan gospel singer followed. Cue howling. Finally, a report about a Panamanian who makes “artworks” out of plastic bottles.
There were better things, such as a report on Kazakh nomads forced to flee the Soviet Union in the late 1920s, their descendants now stuck in China and subject to anti-Muslim repressions (along with the Uighurs).
Overall, though, the World Service is almost unlistenable now, like Radio 4.
Not sure what Nick Griffin means (I have no idea what The Clash sound like); presumably some call to action directe…
I am not so sure that that would be a complete answer. Most unmarried men (even gays) are not pederasts, and some married men are.
Exactly. Laurence Fox may well be sincere, but that does not prevent him being (((controlled opposition))). cf. UKIP, Brexit Party, Breitbart, Katie Hopkins, “Prison Planet” Watson etc.
I have blogged previously, many times, about the “privatization of public space”; I mentioned it in my talk at the London Forum in 2017 (now also censored…). I may not particularly like Trump, but he is the President of the most powerful state on Earth, and yet even his tweets get censored! This is the problem: that Internet quasi-monopolies are leaving citizens with effectively no rights qua citizen, only bare contractual rights (that amount to nothing).
Peter Hitchens has a point, but it might equally be said that there is far too little anger in British politics. Far too little anger at migration-invasion. Far too little anger at the Jew-Zionist power and influence contaminating both politics and economy. Far too little anger at the war waged on the poor, unemployed and disabled by evil persons such as Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, Esher McVey, the jew “lord” Freud etc since 2010 (though started, quietly, under fake “Labour” from 1997). Far too little anger at the level of poverty and deprivation in the UK. Far too little anger at the sick decadence of the mass media, not least in the BBC.
If one is Peter Hitchens, a semi-approved System scribbler sitting in Oxford, then a degree of ivory tower complacency is, perhaps, the obvious attitude. The same is true of the fake Spectator-type dissidents, the Toby Youngs and Delingpoles. Some of their views are valid, but many not, and they offer no solutions.
For once, Julia Hartley-Brewer has a point. The country has lost its mind (****ing or otherwise): wage slaves in shops becoming harsh-voiced authoritarians acting like sergeant-majors ordering their cadets to adjust their masks! Scared rabbits wearing facemasks even when alone in their cars, or walking in the open air! Same idiots swerving to avoid being within many feet of others (admittedly people have been known to cross the street to avoid me even before “the virus” came to us! I am told that I sometimes walk scowling….when I am in fact just thinking!)…
The “government” of this poor country has certainly lost whatever mind it had. As for the population, many, perhaps half, want more severe measures! Are they the same that will be soon losing their jobs, having to exist on peanuts State benefits, losing their rented or “owned” (on mortgage) homes?
If Boris-idiot has failed to behave, or even look like, a real Prime Minister, then Keir Starmer has likewise failed even in his Opposition role (which he seems unable to understand in the slightest). Muzzled, photographed down on one knee in fealty to the blacks (who themselves are just “useful idiots”), and in thrall to the Jewish lobby and Israel. Starmer is just a useless System drone. Uninteresting. A waste of space.
After a lifetime scribbling for the System Press (Lugenpresse, Judenpresse), Hitchens still is unwilling to see the enormity of what is behind the “panicdemic”: the Great Reset, and the Great Replacement. Google both…
Exactly so. It is not just the “panicdemic”. The importation of blacks and browns and others (and their subsequent breeding) has changed a fairly homogenous society into a multikulti dustbin. The State then has to exert efforts to stay in control.
Tell me that I am wrong…
Happened to see that exchange. It really should no longer shock me that a barrister, and indeed from a set considered to be (and calling itself) “leading”, appears not to know the difference between “disinterested” and (as he obviously means…), “uninterested“. A sign of the times, I suppose…
The elephant in the room is why on Earth the airports and seaports were not closed long ago now, in February or March. Talk about “shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted”! It is almost pointless to do anything now.
Normally, i.e. before and maybe after “Coronavirus”, about 100,000 visitors a day enter the UK. It seems that at least 100,000 but possibly as many as 800,000 visitors have entered the UK since the “lockdown” nonsense was implemented a couple of months ago.
As to the new “quarantine” measures, how absurd they are!
“Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary has already described the plans as “idiotic” and “unimplementable,” and Airlines UK said they “would effectively kill” international travel to and from Britain.” [The Guardian]
Quite. So almost all of the arrivals by air (and sea, presumably) will be asked to provide an address in the UK at which they will “self-quarantine” for 14 days, on pain of a £1,000 fine? The police will, we are told, spot-check.
This is mere window-dressing. Completely unworkable. Let us say tha, on any given day at present, 15,000 people enter the UK (that is the Government’s own figure; the true figure may be twice that number). So those 15,000 all give, on arrival, a UK address at which they will be “self-isolating”. How many of those can be checked (even once) by the police within the 14 days? 100? 1,000?
A single policeman might be able to check 10 per day, arguably. So even to check a thousand of the fifteen thousand would take about 100 policemen. To check all 15,000 (once) would take 1,500 policemen. To check those 15,000 visitors twice, 3,000 policemen, working only on that job.
The Government in fact does not claim that all will be checked, even once. They say, “spot-checked”. So will only, say, 1,000 of the (Government’s low estimate of) 15,000 daily arrivals be checked (once)? Even that seems unlikely. 100 policemen….
Indeed, what do the fines, if any are levied, do? Nothing (except add £1,000 to police or central funds). Presumably the defaulters, if any, will not (if located before their planned departure dates) be deported, which would by then be pointless anyway (and in fact all the UK’s immigration-detention facilities have been closed by reason of “the virus”, leaving the formerly-incarcerated aliens to roam around as they please).
In terms of deterring those arriving from moving around as they please in the fortnight after arrival, the proposed checks and fines are akin to drink-driving: stiff penalties if caught, but the chances are, that if you only do it once or twice, or a few times, you will not be caught.
Are these “spot-checks” and possible fines even a deterrent? A little, perhaps. What they do do, though, and severely, is to deter from visiting the UK anyone who does not have a compelling and indeed unavoidable reason for coming. I cannot see many tourists, or business travellers for that matter, coming to the UK knowing that for the first 14 days they will be cooped up in their hotels, and checked by the police at that, and fined if they have moved to another hotel (eg if the first one was not to their liking).
This “plan” is typical of thick chancers such as Priti Patel, Iain Dunce Duncan Smith (not guilty in this case, but guilty in so many others…), Little Matt Hancock etc. Not to mention Boris-idiot. These political careerist chancers have no idea. They’re hopeless.
“A Virgin Atlantic spokeswoman said that with mandatory 14-day self-isolation in place there simply won’t be sufficient demand to resume passenger services before August at the earliest.” [The Guardian]
The international travel and tourism business in the UK is finished for 2020 and possibly 2021. Hotels, airlines, travel websites etc.
More “enrichment” of the UK’s (once) white Northern European society…
“Ofogeli, who smirked when the jury returned their verdicts after deliberating for just under 12 hours, was sentenced at London’s Old Bailey today.” [Daily Mail]

“Race is the root-stock, culture is the flower“…[Anon]
When we look into the future of the UK, do we want it to be an advanced, high-IQ, high-education, prosperous and cultured country, cohesive nation, and ethnostate, or do we want it to be a multikulti, bottom-of-barrel banana republic (with or without a fantasy “royal family” sitting on the peak of the rubbish-tip)?
Some of my readers have been taken aback by my recent reposting of a large number of tweets by Peter Hitchens. This was not done because I agree with Peter Hitchens about everything, but because I agree with much of what he has had to say recently about Coronavirus, “lockdown”, economic shutdown; also, re. Government policy and behaviour.
I have blogged about Hitchens himself in the past:
At least, I disagree with tweeter “@jona77”, above. If a “wealth tax” is “legalized theft”, then so is that amount of national economic value pumped (via governmental policy, tax policy etc over decades) into such things as, and primarily, private house values.
All but a tiny minority of those who actually have any wealth in the UK have most of it tied up in their house or houses. They themselves did not create such wealth (leaving aside improvements such as house-extensions); the wealth was created largely by the artificially-contrived expansion of value, a result of the policies of governments since, mainly, the 1970s. Margaret Thatcher turbo-charged it.
The value pumped into the real property sector in Britain has, of necessity, taken away value from other sectors.
In other words, if a “wealth tax” (which I do not necessarily support) is “theft”, then so is much of the value that might be “stolen” (taxed). I suppose that that observation is not original, not new. After all “property is theft” [Proudhon], arguably: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Property_is_theft!
As someone who has been cheated, most of his life, I find myself not very sympathetic to the “plight” of the inheritees, trustafarians, buy-to-let parasites, and the sharp-elbowed and property-owning Middle Englanders who always vote “Conservative” (even after that party has changed out of all recognition).
On the other hand, I am certainly in agreement with Hitchens here:
The state of the economy is terrifying. But to acknowledge this is to recognise that the government is engaged in a mad policy of self-harm. Much easier to go on and and on about testing, and have another drink. https://t.co/ynfYnoQNxy
The NHS is of course the pleasant face of the new Strong State. The Government Militia which has replaced the police, and the rapacious new tax authorities who will patrol our increasingly cash-free society will be less loveable. https://t.co/XyHpi8obtK
“I have often thought that many of the stupid actions taken by British governments over the past few decades, from joining the Common Market and abolishing police foot patrols to the destruction of the grammar schools, are so mad that they can only be rationally explained as deliberate sabotage.
The same goes for the fervent dedication of the BBC and much of the press to any cause that would undermine tradition, morality, marriage and manners.” [Peter Hitchens, in the Daily Mail]
Note: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, often described —by Jew scribblers, by the msm, by (((approved))) Wikipedia editors— as “a forgery”, is really literary fantasy, which however mirrors actual fact and real events. Poetische Freiheit or literarische Fantasie, if you like.
Are you still there @andyrossecon? Haven't you noticed that 98% of newspaper pundits are in *favour* of the panic, or indifferent to it. Why would you therefore think it mercenary of me to take the position I have embraced? https://t.co/50tI4lx0wu
“Coronavirus lockdowns have failed to alter the course of the pandemic but have instead ‘destroyed millions of livelihoods’, a JP Morgan study has claimed.
Falling infection rates since lockdowns were lifted suggest that the virus ‘likely has its own dynamics’ which are ‘unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures’, a report published by the financial services giant said.” [Daily Mail]
So that’s about 300,000 more people on the dole thanks to Boris-idiot, “financial genius” Rishi Sunak, and the rest of the Cabinet of clowns.

I notice that Twitter catches up with me. Today, #WhenCoronavirusIsOver is “trending” in the Twitterati’s echo-chamber. I have been thinking for several days, and in fact longer, about blogging on that very topic.
The public health emergency itself
We all know that, certainly as a public health emergency, Coronavirus or “COVID-19” will end. When, we do not know. At first, the “experts” thought as late as next year, then it was “later in 2020”, now they seem to be saying sometime in the Summer. I myself do not know —just like the “experts”— but I am suspecting that this will not last beyond June at latest. Why?
First of all, we have seen the experience of Wuhan itself, where cases seem to have been around 3% of the population (3% of 11 million = about 330,000) but confirmed cases were only about 81,000 (which may seem enormous, but Wuhan is a city with more people than London, 19 million in the metro area around, compared to about 15 million in and around London, and has several times the population of the Paris area). Of the fewer than 82,000 confirmed cases in Wuhan, 3,300 have died. The outbreak has now either been contained or simply ceased (played itself out). The authorities are now easing the “lockdown” restrictions.
That link, above, is worth perusing. It shows that, in Europe, the UK is actually far down the list of countries with Coronavirus (per million population). We see that some countries have had far more cases, adjusted by population, than the UK, but a lower death toll. Why? They have better healthcare.
Germany has had three times the number of Coronavirus cases as has had the UK, but only a third of the deaths. Why? Better healthcare.
The NHS is a very fine thing in principle, but in practice it is lagging behind many countries in terms of outcomes. It is a kind of religion in the UK, a sacred cow. It has also been both maladministered and starved of funds for many years.
In Germany, the healthcare system just dealt with the Coronavirus situation. Its political leaders did not overdose on the “we can do it” rhetoric, there was none of the fake “wartime spirit” that we have seen in the UK, with its “recruit a million volunteers” and “mass clap-in for the NHS” (which the Twitterati loved…oh, didn’t they love it! Virtue-signalling central…).
There is panic around. Example: special flights are today taking British tourists from Peru (which has virtually no Coronavirus) to the UK (which has). I am sure that the tourists are grateful. Or misinformed.
“Cokehead” Gove, the expenses-cheating little doormat for Israel, has now announced that the UK will possibly “have to have” even more strict “lockdown” measures. How will we even get food? This is madness.
The predictions for deaths in the UK were 250,000, even 800,000! Now one study says 5,700; another says about 20,000. Still bad, but nowhere near the apocalyptic numbers previously mooted. Already we see the alarming death toll stabilizing. The last day (28 March) was not quite so bad as that of the day before.
It is difficult to argue, as have such as the scribbler Peter Hitchens, that the very severe measures, “advised” and then mandated by the Boris-idiot government, were wrong or too strict. Having said that, that may indeed have been the case.
“The simplest way to judge whether we have an exceptionally lethal disease is to look at the death rates. Are more people dying than we would expect to die anyway in a given week or month? Statistically, we would expect about 51,000 to die in Britain this month. At the time of writing, 422 deaths are linked to Covid-19 — so 0.8 per cent of that expected total. On a global basis, we’d expect 14 million to die over the first three months of the year. The world’s 18,944 coronavirus deaths represent 0.14 per cent of that total. These figures might shoot up but they are, right now, lower than other infectious diseases that we live with (such as flu). Not figures that would, in and of themselves, cause drastic global reactions.“
“We may very well be comparing apples with oranges. Recording cases where there was a positive test for the virus is a very different thing to recording the virus as the main cause of death.“
“Early evidence from Iceland, a country with a very strong organisation for wide testing within the population, suggests that as many as 50 per cent of infections are almost completely asymptomatic. Most of the rest are relatively minor. In fact, Iceland’s figures, 648 cases and two attributed deaths, give a death rate of 0.3 per cent. As population testing becomes more widespread elsewhere in the world, we will find a greater and greater proportion of cases where infections have already occurred and caused only mild effects. In fact, as time goes on, this will become generally truer too, because most infections tend to decrease in virulence as an epidemic progresses.“
[Dr. John Lee, NHS consultant pathologist, in The Spectator]
He makes another very important point:
“The moral debate is not lives vs money. It is lives vs lives. It will take months, perhaps years, if ever, before we can assess the wider implications of what we are doing. The damage to children’s education, the excess suicides, the increase in mental health problems, the taking away of resources from other health problems that we were dealing with effectively. Those who need medical help now but won’t seek it, or might not be offered it.”
I dare say that the above, despite having been written by a NHS consultant pathologist, and indeed professor of pathology, will not be welcome to many engaged in groupthink on Twitter, in government, in the organs of the State such as the police, and NHS. Dissent from the “accepted” view is treated as a kind of social treason at present.
Simply washing hands is probably 90% of the answer. As for “social distancing”, “social isolation” etc, they help but are secondary or tertiary.
There has been a study from Oxford University suggesting that a high proportion, maybe 50% of the UK population, has been, since the beginning of 2020, infected with Coronavirus. Most people either show no symptoms or relatively mild symptoms. We have seen this at the heart of government. A number of MPs and ministers have been confirmed cases. So far not one has been seriously unwell, despite their ages (in their 40s, 50s, 60s).
The virus cannot live for long on a human being. A few weeks at maximum. After that, the carrier, if infected, is either
asymptomatic and clear;
diagnosed and then recovered and clear; or
(a tiny minority, probably a small fraction of 1%) dead.
The virus likewise does not live long on surfaces. Hours, a few days (or even weeks, but only in exceptional cases).
Incidentally, the first confirmed case of Coronavirus in China was on 10 January 2020, the first in Italy 29 January, and the first in the UK 30 January. Fewer than three weeks after China. China is now easing restrictions, but the UK government is talking about keeping them until as long as September! Even tightening them (how?)…
We are now right at the end of March 2020. “April is the cruellest month”, as T.S. Eliot wrote. It will probably see the peak of the Coronavirus epidemic in the UK, if that has not already been reached. By May, the situation will probably look very different, and by June, very different again. I shall be surprised if we are not “back to normal” by July at the latest. But what is “normal”, now?
I suppose that the Government and the whole System will say that Coronavirus ruined the economy. In fact, it was “tanking” already. The retail sector in particular. Now, we have seen huge numbers of lay-offs, some partly subsidized by the new government “furlough” plan. Already there have been half a million registrations-as-unemployed and there will be millions more.
Vast numbers of small businesses have been hit, and many will close down, never to re-appear. I don’t mean the fake “businesses” that consist of one person doing the job of an employee but not, technically, being employed. I mean real very small businesses, which may employ only the principal, and maybe a handful of others. Small, but multiply those few people by a million and you see the problem.
The UK Government cannot pay a significant proportion of the population fairly substantial amounts indefinitely unless there is an economy still functioning. At present, the only parts of the enterprise economy still functioning are the retail banks, the supermarkets, the smaller food shops, the medical-pharmaceutical sector, some construction and engineering projects, some agriculture and horticulture.
The pound will eventually fall through the floor in a situation where other economies are or will resume functioning while the UK economy is still prevented by its own government from functioning. That will make imported goods very expensive. Britain imports most of its food.
We could be looking here at Britain’s final eclipse as a major economy.
British people are famously obsessed with the supposed value of their houses. A house where I spent many years on and off in Little Venice, London, was bought at a valuation of £100,000 in or about 1980. The lady owner sold it in 2005 for £1.4M, I believe. Its valuation in 2018 was around £3.5M and may even be £4M now. A 35x or even 40x increase in value in 40 years! Pay in the UK has increased (face value) by only about 2x or 4x in that period.
Even in the past two decades, and even outside London, property has leapt in value. I recall seeing little bungalows for sale in Seaton, Devon in 1998, while idly walking around. One was only £23,000! Others were £25,000 and £28,000. I should imagine that even those little places would be priced at something like £200,000. In fact, I have just now looked on a property website: cheapest similar house— £195,000. A nearly tenfold increase in 22 years.
The UK property market is a house of cards ready to collapse. The buy to let sector will be first. People who do not have jobs cannot rent houses, usually, because the housing benefit does not cover the full cost (even if the owner is willing to rent to the jobless— most are not).
Once the buy to let sector has collapsed, the rest of the market will suffer a catastrophic (for property-owners) fall. A 50% fall is by no means impossible.
As to commercial property, even before Coronavirus the sector was tanking. Jews control much of it, so to that extent I rub my hands. With businesses collapsing, the economy on the floor, there will be little or no demand for offices and shops. The Internet is in any case killing the retail sector inasmuch as it is in the High Streets and even malls.
Pick-up in the economy
After Coronavirus, some businesses will pick up quickly: barbers, hairdressers, people who fix computers etc. Others may never emerge from the depths. One thing is for sure: money will be in short supply for most people.
Unemployment will be huge. The misconceived and cruel “welfare” (social security) “reforms” started by the Labour Party (particularly the “Blairites” Alistair Darling and James Purnell) from about 2007 and made inestimably more harsh under the part-Japanese sadist Iain Dunce Duncan Smith have ruined the DWP both attitudinally and in terms of efficiency. The recent huge upsurge in demand has found the DWP (under deadhead minister Therese Coffey) unable to cope.
I predict that, in 2021-2022, and as the economy tanks, the pound collapses, house prices fall and unemployment surges, there will be a demand from the whole people for radical change. The tired “Conservative” Party cannot offer that, still less can the —all but irrelevant— Labour Party. This will be the moment for social nationalism to strike!
“You see, my son, here time turns into space!”
Update, 24 December 2020
Most of what I predicted in the above article has come to pass.
Superficially, I was wrong in saying that both “the virus” and the various measures supposedly to reduce its occurrence would finish long before the end of 2020. Well, here we are, and, on paper, the virus is still here. However, flu has all but disappeared as a cause of death, replaced by “Coronavirus” or “Covid-19”.
Vast numbers are being tested and so, ipso facto, numbers “infected” are also high, but few require any treatment. As I predicted, deaths peaked in April. I myself still know no-one who knows anyone who has or has had the virus.
The overall death toll in numbers in the UK is below that of some recent years. “The virus” is a serious public health situation but scarcely the Black Death. About 1 out of every 1,400 living in the UK has died from or with “the virus” (in the world generally, 1 in 8,000).
Meanwhile, the absurd over-reaction of “the authorities” has trashed civil rights, ruined much of the economy, and made life near-intolerable. Unnecessarily.
Sorry to hear that the Adelphi Hotel has fallen on hard times. I stayed there for a few days, ungazetted, when an ad-hoc Soviet ballet company (mainly Bolshoi dancers, if I remember aright) was in Liverpool. That would have been in about 1985 or 1986. My then girlfriend’s small suite had a sitting room with a kind of curtained-off bedroom. An entrance hall led to the sitting room and also to a spacious bathroom.
The prima ballerina, whose name I forget, was unhappily married and thought to be mentally unstable. She had, I was told, a magnificent suite. For her own protection, both in view of her emotional state and because protesting Jews supporting “refuseniki” (Soviet Jews supposedly wanting to emigrate to Israel from the Soviet Union— most ended up in California) might alarm her, a KGB man slept across her doorway all night, every night, in the manner of Russia’s ancient history.
In fact, that dancer was at risk— she later tried to commit suicide in Sardinia, by slitting her wrists in her bath. Her husband was constantly unfaithful, apparently. Also, she was about 40. Not good for a dancer, though the famous ones have often overcome age to retain public affection: Maya Plisetskaya, Margot Fonteyn etc.
In fact, those dancers (the couple) were living a golden or velvet life in Moscow. His and hers Mercedes cars, dacha, luxury apartment etc. A lifestyle most people (whether in Moscow or the UK) never experience. Still, money cannot, as such, buy happiness. It’s just a dull grind when money is short…
The Adelphi was, I thought, a good hotel at that time (now about 35 years ago). A quartet played classical pieces live in the opulent and huge foyer. Among those listening was the then Chief Constable of Merseyside. The hotel was a landmark in Liverpool.
The Labour Party is now weaker than it has ever been, in my view. Weaker even than it was under that unpleasant little hypocrite Michael Foot.
Labour under Corbyn, though weak, was stronger than it now is. Now Labour is going to —eventually— elect a new leader, which could be Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey or Lisa Nandy. All have kow-towed to the Jew lobby, all have otherwise similar policies, though Rebecca Long-Bailey is the most radical of the three. Starmer looks likely to be the choice, because he frightens few horses; as against that, he is as dull as ditchwater.
Labour’s problem can be said to reside in the fact that, outside the Labour Party membership, few people even care which of the three becomes Labour leader.
Labour, for which 10 million voters voted in 2019, is scarcely in the exact position of UKIP after 2015, when UKIP gradually became a joke, an irrelevance and then eventually just a nothing. Having said that, there is a parallel. Labour now has no power to speak of in the Commons, because the Conservative Party majority of 80 can steamroller through almost anything.
Beyond that, there is the point that the Coronavirus rescue package of Rishi Sunak, whatever its deficiencies and flaws, has pretty much shot Labour’s fox on “austerity” etc. All Labour can say is “we would have done more and better…(if we were in power, which we are not, and will not be for years, if ever…)”.
Not a very impressive position. The msm continue to give Labour MPs a platform, as required by OFCOM rules etc, but in reality, Labour has become something close to an irrelevance. In fact, it has been reduced to supporting the Government’s positions in the present crisis.
It is clear that Iain Dunce Duncan Smith’s shambolic “welfare” “reforms” are not only completely stupid but cannot work administratively. Why is this surprising? After all, Dunce only got to Lieutenant in his 6 years of being an Army officer. He never had any responsible civilian job either. How could such a person really conceive a workable social security reform, even if “IDS” were a better person morally than he in fact is?
However, the collapse of the Universal Credit system and other DWP areas, under the weight of the Coronavirus burden, will not help Labour. In fact, any “opposition” will more likely come from within the Conservative Party itself.
I detect no real chance for Labour at present, nor for quite a while into the future. If ever.
I had not intended to make a ratissage on the supermarkets this evening, but in the end I did, mainly to get bread, a couple of food items and some cat treats. I went to the nearest one, a Waitrose outlet a mile or two away. I arrived about 1930, half an hour before closing time. Few customers, but an innovation: outside the wide-open doors, two security men, young and dressed entirely in black. Woollen hats, padded jackets, scarfs wound around neck, covering the lower face. Armbands. Exactly like the militia in the TV series, The Handmaid’s Tale. They lacked only the weapons. They are, it seems, Waitrose “marshals”.
Inside, bought 2 scratchcards (both modest winners, as it turned out), but at first my cash was refused. All part of the new hygiene regime. Card only.
I was curious to see whether the shelves were still being stripped bare. Most bread had gone, though there were a few of the less popular (and more expensive) types available: stoneground rye, sourdough etc. Eggs were very plentiful. Flour seemed to be unavailable. Pasta available, though only the slightly more expensive Italian-made stuff in blue and yellow packing; little of the cheaper “Essential Waitrose” pasta. Pasta sauces mostly gone, though the more expensive Lloyd Grossman jars were there (over £2 compared to £1 for the cheapest Waitrose own-brand line). I bought one jar. Puttanesca. Everything else seemed to be available for those wanting it, even loo paper (only the more expensive brands, though). I found the cat treats. No shortage.
I noticed that fruit, vegetables and everything else that I looked at in passing seemed to be in supply.
My conclusion from that and my drive around yesterday: the supermarkets are gradually getting on top of the bulk-buying/panic-buying wave. People are still doing it, but less so. There must be some people around here sitting on mountains of dried pasta, pasta sauce jars, bread and loo paper. I also noticed that people are obviously not buying the pasta to eat immediately, because there was plenty of fresh pasta for sale.
Anyway, that’s my story…
On the way back, a car would not wait for me at a junction and drove off at speed. A few minutes later, I saw a blue light in my rear-view mirror (when I was learning to drive, belatedly, at age 42, the instructor said that one of my faults as a driver was that I looked in the rear-view mirror more than I looked out of the windshield!). Anyway, I turned off to avoid any contact. Only a few seconds later, the police flashed past down the deserted rural A-road. Were they after that other driver? Was he a suspected Coronavirus “non-essential” driver? Had he been heard humming an Alison Chabloz song about “holocaust” fakery? We shall never know…
Watched a topical film on ITV2: Contagion, about an infectious virus that starts with bats in China, and then gets into the food chain, finally being transmitted person to person until millions are killed all over the world. Wait, wasn’t that the TV news? Oh, no, it was “just a film”…More seriously, I was slightly surprised that an alarming (though well-made) film like that was broadcast at a time like this.
Some bulk-buying may not be so stupid in the present situation, but some is very silly and is clearly “panic-buying”, such as the old woman of whom I read, “caught” in an Aldi store trying to buy no less than 80 cans of tomatoes! Enough for months, surely? (She was only allowed 4 cans in the end).
I saw this in the Daily Mail online:
Sainsbury’s in Hertford, at opening time. The photo shows what is happening: hordes of old people (and a few “Vicky Pollard” “chavscum” mothers) lining up to imitate a cloud of locusts. Some stores are prioritizing the elderly, but that may be a misconceived idea.
Where I live, in a generally affluent part of Hampshire, the elderly (who are the majority of the population) are the ones who are bulk-buying almost everything. The local Waitrose is stripped bare within minutes. I spoke to a lady who had been there in mid-morning and already all loo paper, pasta, pasta sauce, tuna, bread, flour and cleaning products had gone; and that happens every single day, it seems. Affluent —or at least not poor— pensioners (many in large houses, with several fridges and freezers) are stocking up for Armageddon.
I went yesterday evening to a village shop and sub-post office. The village has no other shop, just a church, a pub-restaurant and a car dealer. The little shop is a grocery outlet which also sells booze and local produce (prepared crab, smoked trout and salmon, as well as pheasant and other game; local asparagus, local honey).
On an unrelated aspect, it seems to me that small shops and little post offices like that, in villages or areas without other shops, should not have to pay business rates, council tax or even other taxes (eg on profits), for good social reasons. A place like that is more than just a food, drink and postage stamps outlet. It is a community hub.
The owner told me that affluent old people had bought all the bread that morning and did so every morning, and were probably freezing it. This is an area where people, often in sizeable houses, and with comfortable incomes, have 2, 3, or 4 large fridges and freezers.
The joke is that those are exactly the people most likely to spout the “we won the war” stuff, about Britain being a “nation” (which it scarcely is now), “all pulling together”. They all vote Conservative and would deny that they are featherbedded in various ways.
It is not that I dislike the elderly, as such. After all, at 63 I am well on the way myself, and anyone under 40 is likely to regard me as quite “old” (though few who meet me realize that I am that old). However, it seems to me that there is a dual process going on:
an increasingly aged and ageing population; but also
a creeping infantilization, which affects all ages.
Enemies of the people
I have just invented and instituted a new tradition on my blog pages, namely the “enemies of the people” section, to consist of tweets exposing enemies of Britain and Europe generally in the enemies’ own tweets.
I have decided to launch my new section by featuring two-in-one: a Jewish woman called “Dr Miranda Kaufmann”, as well as an apparently similarly inimical organization called “Octopus Publishing” (which may not be all bad; judgment reserved):
So “bosses” (whatever that means— in Sun-speak, it can just mean a middle-manager) are taking a pay cut, but the “workers” are being “axed”…
Have these people never heard of 1789, 1848, 1917, 1933 etc?
Pakistani woman and four others attacked a schoolgirl (was she English? Probably), punching her, ripping out hair, then later intimidating her on Facebook. Found guilty on overwhelming evidence but still denying her guilt. Result? Non-custodial sentence. Quelle surprise. Sentencing judge ludicrously says that “the offence was so serious that he could have sent Mahmood to prison, but decided to spare [her]” because the w** woman is mother of four children and is carer for her mother. And (unsaid) the British people pay for all six of the bastards…and probably others in the family/clan…
“We have, of course, been here before, 10 years ago when the banks were bailed out with few conditions being attached to the money that flowed their way. As a result, they were able to use a chunk of it to keep their top tier employees in the style to which they had become accustomed while branch staff were losing their jobs.” [The Independent]
Guy Fawkes and Iain Dunce Duncan Smith
We still celebrate the end of the Fawkes plot by burning an effigy on a bonfire, the effigy being, even after over 400 years, called “the Guy”. What about Dunce Duncan Smith? Ideas on a postcard…
What are the Jews up to?
“Israel’s secretive Mossad intelligence agency launched a covert international operation this week to fly in up to 100,000 coronavirus testing kits…The local broadcaster Channel 12, which first reported the operation, said Mossad had intended to bring in about 4 million kits from several countries. About 530 cases have been confirmed in Israel, which has taken stringent measures to contain the spread, including shutting down all schools, cafes and malls. On Wednesday evening, it barred all tourists and visitors from entering the country.” [The Guardian]
Was just watching the first episode of that excellent series, Reilly, Ace of Spies [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reilly,_Ace_of_Spies], now being reshown on Talking Pictures TV. What was and is so good about the series was that it keeps pretty closely to the known historical narrative. The only irritant is that, in the credits, the theme music, in fact the Romance from the suite The Gadfly, by Shostakovitch, is credited as having been “composed and directed by Harry Rabinowitz” (a South African Jew)! Disgraceful, though it may not have been Rabinowitz’s fault that he was wrongly credited as composer.
Seems to be still spreading, expanding its range. Italy hard hit. I saw a graphic recently re. personal hygiene, washing hands etc in various countries of Europe. Italy was at or near the bottom of the scale. That may well be significant.
My Australian niece has just returned to London from Venice. She went there for the carnival, only to find most events cancelled. This is getting serious. We are told that 80% of people who get the virus have symptoms so mild that no medical help is required. However, that still leaves 20% who do require at least some help. About 2% of the whole are dying. If it became widespread in the UK and affected, say, a million people, that would mean that 20,000 would die and another 180,000 would require NHS help.
How would the already-overstretched NHS cope? Probably not at all well. The tabloid Press has behaved with its usual panic-stricken lack of caution, predicting half a million deaths in the UK:
The malicious Jew-Zionist cabal known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA” is continuing its abuse of the English legal system.

You heard it first here. I was blogging about Boris-idiot’s inability to face, let alone handle, a crisis years ago! Before that idiot became PM, even before his disastrous tenure as Foreign Secretary. I tweeted about it until mid-2018 (when the Jews had me expelled from Twitter). I continue to blog about it. Now, finally, people are waking up, slowly. Here is the always-amusing and often correct “Artist Taxi Driver”:
Floods Coronavirus where has the part time PM been hiding? has he been quarantined? Self Isolating? 😱
I had not heard the rumour that Boris-idiot cannot appear in public because his allegedly pregnant “ho”, Carrie Symonds (who, despite surpassing ignorance, exercises considerable influence behind the scenes at No.10), has given Boris-idiot a black eye. If “Artist Taxi Driver” is correct, the alleged black eye was not bestowed on Boris-idiot for his shambolic joke-prime ministership but because the idiot posing as Prime Minister has been indulging in yet more fornication, and his “No.1 Ho” objects to that.
Just saw this very pertinent tweet about the Jew influence in Labour and how the three remaining candidates for leader have sold themselves:
Surely it is not antisemitic to ask the question as to why 0.04% of the UK population, are able to demand the potential Labour Leadership candidates attend an event to be interrogated ? pic.twitter.com/7ssHGCSDSv
…and the tweet below by Asa Winstanley is also very relevant, but the “anti-racist” me-too idiots in Labour have made fools of themselves. They oppose Jew exploitation in Palestine/Israel, oppose Zionist propaganda and warmongering by Israel, but pay lip-service to the foundations of the Israeli state! I mean:
the “holocaust” narrative, much of which is a farrago of lies, hoaxes, fakery and propaganda, protected in much of Europe by mediaeval-style “heresy” laws criminalizing “denial” (free historical examination and debate);
unwillingness to criticize or even see the exploitation, by Jews, of non-Jews outside the Middle East.
Margaret Hodge launched the 2016 coup against Corbyn, is part of Labour Friends of Israel and has been attacking the left for years — these are facts: https://t.co/rH9eeQmrek
Labour is as good as doomed except as a fake “opposition” (as it was in the recent past too), controlled by the Israel lobby or Jewish lobby, unable to address the issues facing most British people, pro-mass immigration etc.
The question arises, if (when) the “Conservative” government is exposed as useless, to what can the British people turn, when the only “alternative” is an arguably even more useless “Labour” Party?
A social-national movement must arise, but as yet does not even exist.

The fact is that Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, Alistair Darling, the jew “lord” Freud, Esther McVey, David Gauke, the heads of ATOS, Capita etc have never been punished for their crimes against the people. Not yet, anyway.
