Diary Blog, 29 September 2022, including thoughts about the political fallout from the current economic crisis, and about the possibility of Russian nuclear attack

On this day a year ago

Labour, the Conservatives, the economy, and the political fallout

but

Thus one Marian Kennedy [“writes fiction; international lawyer“] proves that she cannot see the wood from the trees.

The whole point about what seems to have been Delia Smith’s cri de coeur [I did not actually see Peston] is that the present Parliamentary system, the “three main parties” set-up, the voting system, the system for selection of Parliamentary candidates etc, is just not working properly.

It is because of this parallel malfunctioning that, inter alia, we have had as Prime Minister a part-Jew, part-Levantine bad joke, and now we have, in the same high position, a woman who really only became an MP on her back, frankly. The same malfunctioning has resulted in a pretty poor female barrister becoming Home Secretary (not that all of her views are wrong), and a rather thick half-caste with a “degree” in Hospitality Management becoming the new Foreign Secretary; not to mention the woolly-headed African who is now Chancellor of the Exchequer, even if he did attend Eton and Cambridge (both, incidentally, hugely over-rated, as are so many UK institutions: Oxford University, the Church, the Bar, SIS, MI5, the armed forces, the Monarchy etc).

The whole system is broken. Delia Smith may have been unable, on a TV programme, to articulate it in detail, but she got the basics right.

Ironically, “In 2014, [Kwasi Kwarteng’s] book War and Gold: A Five-Hundred-Year History of Empires, Adventures and Debt was published. It is a history of capital and the enduring ability of money, when combined with speculation, to ruin societies.[29] “

Ha.

Another opinion from the same lady as above:

Well, Corbyn actually did better than many believe, electorally, but what sank him and Labour in 2019 was mainly a triad of factors: the relentless, daily, Jew-lobby campaign since 2015, painting him as terrorist-enabler, hopeless etc; the eccentric FPTP voting system, and finally the way in which political snake-oil salesman and “controlled opposition” big cheese, Nigel Farage, stabbed his own party and its candidates in the back, with most Brexit Party votes then falling to Conservative candidates.

Labour under Starmer was also in the doldrums, and deserved to be, but now that the Conservative Party has hit (surely?) rock-bottom in terms of its top leadership, Labour can just sit and rake in its chips.

Not very many people really like, trust, or support Labour or Starmer, but in a basically binary system where one party is sawing off the branch upon which it has been sitting, the other party, Labour, has every chance, simply by default.

Talking about how the Conservative Party is ruining its own electoral chances, I was frankly astounded to read that, by reason of Kwarteng’s unbelievable mismanagement and lack of nous, the present Government may actually fund their tax cuts for the affluent and wealthy by cutting pensions and benefits in real terms. For example, by only uprating State pensions by, say, 5% at a time when inflation is forecast to go to at least 10% and maybe 20%.

Already, we see that most State benefits (including Pension Guarantee Credit) will not be uprated to anything like inflation-level.

Who votes Conservative? Mostly, most obviously, people over 60, and especially people over 80. This is the absolute core of Conservative Party electoral support. If you cheat them (for the second year running) of the promised “triple lock” uprating, then you, the Conservative Party, are going to be well and truly f*****. Not a term I use often on the blog.

We know how nuanced the FPTP voting system can be. It was said that, in 2017, a few thousand voters in a small number of constituencies (a hundred or two hundred in each) could actually have changed the outcome of the General Election.

In 2019, 67 seats were won by a margin of less than 5% of votes cast. In 2017, 97 seats.

In 2019, 141 seats were won or held by margins of less than 10% of votes cast:

More than a fifth of all constituencies.

Not only are pensioners (of which, incidentally, I am now one) most likely to vote Conservative (not me, of course), but they are most likely, of all age groups, to vote at all, both in general and via postal balloting.

If the pensioners and the “struggling middle”, as well as the low paid and more obviously poor, decide to vote elsewhere than Conservative, or even simply not to vote at all, the Conservative party might lose an incredible number of seats. Maybe a hundred; maybe two hundred.

At present, the Conservative Party has 357 seats in the Commons (out of 650). If that were to be reduced to 257, or 157, the effect would be seismic.

If the Conservative Party leadership think that the English and general UK “grey vote” is guaranteed whatever, and that those votes can be taken for granted, they are very much mistaken. That’s what idiots like Jim Murphy thought about the Scottish Labour vote, once.

I remember seeing, on American TV, the Poll Tax riots in London about 32 years ago. Could it happen again, or would it this time be a slower burn, via everything from simple poverty-fuelled shoplifting to occasional outbreaks of politically-oriented vandalism, or even “protest” assassination of MPs and/or ministers?

An open question.

See https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11260331/Ministers-slash-BILLIONS-budgets-reassure-markets-finances-control.html.

Over the past decade, I have had the feeling that the succession of poor Prime Ministers were not fatal for the Conservative Party, because all that the Party had to do was to replace the leader, and the voters would give the new leader a chance. At the same time, Labour was falling into a niche composed of public service workers, and some of the non-white “communities”.

Now, there is a change, caused mainly by the sheer ineptitude of the “unelected” (in terms of true mandate) Prime Minister and her Cabinet. There is a feeling that, this time, the Conservatives have really hit rock bottom, and even if people are not going to vote Labour, the Conservatives have definitely lost the votes of the vast majority.

This could be almost existential for the Conservative Party.

The NWO endgame sees Russia (Russian Federation) as a broken-up series of minor states, all ruled by the money power [ZOG] and completely without military might. However, I think that, before that can come to pass, Russia may be goaded into launching its nuclear arsenal against the West, and particularly the USA.

After WW2, despite the Cold War, the American public and decision-makers thought the USA invulnerable. It could invade other countries, interfere with other countries, even bomb (conventionally) other countries, without any comeback.

The 2001 attack on the World Trade Center changed that. The incredible, totally scalded, American reaction said it all to me— “we can be hit“…

All the same, that was over 20 years ago now, and the Americans still do not really think that their cities might one day be rubble, like those the Americans (and British) reduced to rubble in WW2: Berlin, other German cities, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki etc.

Looking at the pronouncements of various American generals, former commanders, think tanks etc, their consensus seems to be that the USA can match the Russian nuclear arsenal, and more, and that even a nuclear exchange could be limited, and then halted. I think not.

If Russia uses tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine, and if then “NATO” (USA/NWO) attacks Russia or Russian concentrations or bases, whether or not with nuclear forces, I think that an escalation to a strategic nuclear exchange more than likely.

True, that would probably mean, as well as elimination of Russian air bases, missile centres, ports, destruction of major Russian cities such as Moscow, Petersburg, Novosibirsk and others. However, it would not be a one-sided conflict.

Russia has, it is said, perhaps 6,000 nuclear weapons. Let us say that it managed to land at least one on each of the top 100 American cities.

The top 10? New York, LA, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, San Antonio.

So all of those, and maybe the next 90 largest cities…

How long would it be before the USA recovered? 100 years? 200?

What about the UK? London gone. The next half-dozen largest cities gone, so maybe Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff, Plymouth, Southampton, Bristol. Others, too. All ports of any size. Air bases etc.

There should be serious thought now about how not to get into a nuclear exchange with Russia.

This whole “pro-Ukraine” (anti-Russia) campaign is being spearheaded by the Jew element. You only have to look at social media to see it.

Ha. Woolly-head Kwasi— what an Uncle Tom for the milieu of the hedge funds.

Is it inoperative? Why is gas apparently bubbling out of it, then? Puzzling.

“NATO” is just a label. Think “New World Order” [“NWO”].

Quite.

Completely loony.

Some of these “Covid” and “vaccine” fanatics would go along with the sacrifice of all first-born children if some law, confirmed as “necessary” by priests of medicine in white outfits, were laid down by a supposedly “caring sharing” government. Watch this space.

We now live in an infested slum, nationwide. Indeed —judging by the way (West) Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands have declined since the 1980s— Europe-wide, though there may be exceptions. Paris? Don’t remind me (it’s too sad).

Ha ha! An obvious fake. Unusual. Kiev-regime propaganda has generally been very skilled since the start of the conflict, easily beating the few Russian attempts to counter it.

Now…where is the nuclear football?

Will we still be here this time next year?

Police priorities

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11250119/Police-catching-criminals-not-involving-Twitter-chief-constable-warns.html

Police should spend more time catching criminals than involving themselves in ‘spats on Twitter‘ and attempts at ‘inclusion’ like dancing on duty, a chief constable has warned. 

Andy Marsh, who has been head of the College of Policing since September 2021, said forces should prioritise reversing exceptionally low rates of solving crimes.

The guidance comes as police officers have repeatedly been warned over dancing on duty at events such as the Notting Hill festival and pride parades. 

It also follows comments from new Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who told chiefs to spend less time on ‘diversity’ and concentrate on fighting crime. 

The police executive, who was chief constable of Avon and Somerset and Hampshire, said: ‘Our new guidance on managing non-crime hate incidents, for example, is very clear: The police should not be involving themselves in spats on Twitter. 

‘It is not where the public want the police to be. We cannot pick sides on contested social issues…”

[Daily Mail]

Not before time. In particular, certain police forces (Essex, Derbyshire, Devon & Cornwall, Gloucestershire etc) have allowed themselves to be manipulated and brainwashed by the malicious Jew-Zionist pressure group calling itself “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, which pretends to be a large, important, influential organization, but in reality consists of a few dozen fanatical Jews obsessed by supposed “anti-Semitism”, and focussed also on defending the very tarnished reputation of the Israeli state.

Take a look at a few of my experiences of the past 6 years: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

That John Semenowicz character is rather odd: see https://guernseypress.com/news/2022/04/06/headline/.

Russia

Russia is in turmoil mainly because it lost its ideology when socialism collapsed around 1989. Yeltsin and his Jew kleptocracy could offer nothing to most Russians, and robbed them blind. Putin gave stability and a semblance of national dignity, but offered no new ideology, just Great Russian or “Muscovite” nationalism, a smattering of Russian Orthodox religion, and a nod or two to the partly-discredited Soviet past.

Only when Russia discovers its new ideology will it rediscover its soul, or vice versa. With that will come cohesion, and then unstoppable power.

Falling pound

We have seen the currency news reported as if it was some unexpected event suddenly falling from the sky. In fact, quite a few people (including me) have been predicting it for at least 2 years.

The whole nonsense around the “pandemic” (panicdemic) led to the UK government throwing around money like a drunken sailor, while closing down much of the economy for 1-2 years. Result— misery.

Yes, having a woolly-headed n****r as Chancellor of the Exchequer, a ridiculous half-caste nincompoop as Foreign Secretary, and above all a stupidly ignorant careerist woman as (posing as) Prime Minister, all triggered this alarming collapse in the value of sterling, but beyond all that there is the strategic question.

Britain was part of a trading bloc. Now it is alone in those terms, and the limited trade deals with Australia, Singapore etc cannot replace the main relationship with the EU. I myself favoured Brexit for several reasons, but it had to be handled properly. It never was. The governments of the past 7 years have made no serious attempt to make Brexit work properly.

It is clear that international forces look at the UK, see it being invaded by armies of breeding non-whites, see the UK’s continuing low productivity, see the lack of a sustainable forward-looking plan, and are running away…

To what extent the situation amounts to an attempt to collapse British society further, in order to further the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan throughout Europe, is an open question.

45p in the £ tax

The Liz Truss “government” is still defending the reduction in top-rate tax to 40p in the £. The argument is that the reduction will actually result in more tax coming in, in the end. Maybe, maybe not, but what it does do, immediately, is destroy any sentiment (however fake) that “we are all in this together”, i.e. social cohesion, as the highest paid are given a tax break at the very same time that most people are struggling.

Tax experts, economists etc may well argue that inflation hitting the poor and “middle” is not the same field of argument as a tax break for the rich and affluent. Tell that to the poor and “middle” of society. After all, they are, overwhelmingly, the voters.

So woolly-head Kwasi, as MP, was also getting £20,000 a year for doing very little but being on the payroll of Odey’s outfit?

Looks as though Odey’s bet paid off. A few bungs of £10,000 every 6 months, and Odey has made millions, maybe hundreds of millions, out of it.

https://www.ft.com/content/d54b4915-60a2-4f73-b1b9-6ea4b7523dd9

…and all people do is tweet, or blog, about it…

Once more, I regret the absence in the UK of any credible — indeed any — social-national party. If my circumstances were different, I would cast caution to the winds and create one myself. Not yet, anyway.

So the storm of madness gathers, with Western (NWO) states, generals, suppposed “experts” all offering nuanced views on “proportionate response” to any Russian tactical nuclear strike in Ukraine (a failed “state”— corrupt, and under Jew-Zionist dictatorship— that has only existed since 1991, and with which the UK has had no treaty or other links).

War games played by the staff colleges of leading powers since the 1960s all came to the same conclusion: any first use of strategic (or even tactical) nuclear weapons in an exchange between NATO and (pre-1991) the Warsaw Pact, i.e. Russia, resulted in an all-out nuclear war.

The question now is whether NATO powers (mainly USA and UK) would attack Russia with strategic nuclear weapons if Russia attacks Ukraine with tactical nuclear weapons. It would be mad. Even within Europe, you could kiss goodbye to, inter alia, London and Paris, for a start. Still want to come up to play?

In fact, Russia might respond with an all-out attack whatever weapons and tactics NATO were to use directly against Russia.

This is not our fight. Steer clear.

Finally, without denigrating Bob Seely, a Conservative MP who was in the British Army, he did serve mostly as a sergeant, so was not concerned directly at that time with high strategy; he did receive a commission later: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Seely.

Seely has also studied these questions academically, and been a journalist (his family owns a large chunk of the Isle of Wight), but are you willing to bet your shirt, your home, or your life on that?

I do not trust journalists, System politicians, or academics specializing in “national security”, strategic studies etc. I do not even trust generals.

Once the UK, USA or any other NATO power (I doubt whether France would get involved, in fact) attacks Russia directly (including Crimea), that’s it. World War Three will be launched. Russia will launch, regardless of the motives, the nuances, the “messages” being sent etc, and we shall be lucky to live through it (if that would even be lucky).

More police nonsense

Looks as though Sussex Police are well and truly contaminated.

Seems that my blog post from 2018 is still relevant…https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/11/15/when-reality-becomes-subjective/.

Having said that, the Reich would have solved the original problem with a couple of well-aimed rounds…

Let’s see whether the new King Charles has the grit to cut adrift “the Harry formerly known as Prince” and the “royal” Mulatta. I doubt it.

Mini-budget of Kwasi Kwarteng and Liz Truss

https://news.sky.com/video/pound-plummets-after-mini-budget-12703855

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2022/09/23/mini-budget-stamp-duty-tax-cuts-ni-truss-kwarteng-ftse-100/

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/sep/23/kwasi-kwarteng-mini-budget-key-points-at-a-glance

Aubrey Allegretti, political correspondent: Kwarteng starts by pinning the blame for inflation and spiralling energy bills directly on Putin.

[The Guardian]

Well, after all, it could not be the fault of the Boris-idiot government, which all but shut down the UK economy for 2 years for no good reason, while doling out free money like a drunken sailor…oh, wait a minute…

Aubrey Allegretti: Kwarteng seeks to turn the last 12 years of Conservative economic wisdom on its head and present the government as new and radical – rather than hanging on the coattails of the last one.

He lays out his central point that “growth is not as high as it should be”, arguing this only leads to less money to fund public services, relying on higher taxes, and so on.

“We need a new approach for a new era” should be seen as nothing less than a bid to reinvent the Conservatives and present them as a party of change – to avoid being blamed for the mistakes of the past. (Despite, of course, Truss having served in the previous three Conservative governments.)

[The Guardian].

This mini-budget is completely mad. The result can only be roaring inflation, higher interest rates for businesses and mortgage-payers, and before very long a huge spike in house-repossessions as people default on the mortgage commitments taken out in easier times.

Reducing tax for those earning over £140,000 —about 3x or 4x the average pay? That is just ridiculous and will be applied to purchase of hedging assets (including paying off any mortgage commitments such higher-earners may have).

Stimulation of the economy requires more money at the bottom end, where people are almost compelled by circumstances to spend on goods and services, not at the top end of the income scale.

Today, the pound sterling is down, as I write, by about 2%. Interest rates for UK government borrowing are rising steeply.

A budget of this sort does nothing for the poor (however defined), nothing for the bulk of the population, and only helps those already affluent or wealthy.

Indeed, it might be said that the “middle ranks”, meaning people without much capital, working for a modest living, paying off a mortgage, paying for children and a household, will be hit very hard.

If only there were an existing, tightly-controlled, social-national party, —even if small— and with credible policies and people. One does not exist. Somewhere soon down the road might come a “1929” moment. That was what started the NSDAP and Hitler on its path to glory (ultimately, tragic glory, but that is another question).

Hilary Mantel

The authoress, Hilary Mantel, has died.

I was struck by this, seen on her Wikipedia entry:

In an 2013 interview with the Telegraph, Mantel stated: “I think that nowadays the Catholic Church is not an institution for respectable people.”[5] She continued in the interview to say: “When I was a child I wondered why priests and nuns were not nicer people. I thought that they were amongst the worst people I knew.” These statements, as well as the themes explored in her earlier novel Fludd, led some to question her work in Wolf Hall, with Bishop Mark O’Toole noting: “There is an anti-Catholic thread there, there is no doubt about it. Wolf Hall is not neutral.”[46].”

[Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilary_Mantel].

I myself had no contact with Roman Catholicism as a child. Indeed, I do not think that I even knew any Roman Catholics until I was in my early 20s. All the same, the few impressions that I had then were not favourable, as when I was in Ireland aged about 21 and had left Tralee station to walk or hitch-hike to the mountains. A small car approached, the first one since Tralee. I stuck out my thumb, only for the miserable-looking bastards on board, a thin, rat-faced and bespectacled Catholic priest, and a thoroughly nasty-looking nun (who was driving), to pass me without even a glance.

After a week or so in the sea-mountains, I returned the same way. Again, a car approached. The same car. The same occupants. I thought that this time they would stop, having seen me the previous week. No. Straight on past, not sparing me a look.

Miserable bastards, whom I hope met a miserable end.

Incidentally, I did get a lift eventually, in both directions; on the journey out, from an attractive dark-haired young Irishwoman who would not accept a chocolate from me because it was Lent.

The years spin past ever-quicker. That was in early 1979, all of 43 years ago now.

Exactly. Both above tweets are right. The income point however leaves out the main difference between the few and the many, the capital held by each group.

The average Joe has no, or virtually no, capital. In fact, if you leave aside any equity value in residential property owned (usually just one dwelling, and Average Joe himself lives in it), most British people really only have a tiny amount of capital, a few thousand pounds, or even just a few hundred.

The wealthy few however, are often not at all dependent on income as such, certainly not income from any ordinary job. Their capital, invested in real property, or shares etc, is the key to their wealth. Careful investment and accountancy can mean that Average Millionaire/Billionaire Joe has almost no taxable income at all, while in any given year, his capital might have increased by 20%, 50%, even 1,000%.

The wealthiest of all have seen their capital increase hugely since the last financial crash in 2008; The Elon Musks (from about USD $2 billion to about USD $277 billion— in just one decade), the Jeff Bezos’s etc.

People like that laugh at the very idea of income tax. It is simply irrelevant to most of them. Look at the Duke of Westminster, small compared to the mega-billionaires, but still worth £10 billion -£20 billion. Then compare that to the Average Joe, who might (or might not) own, even including his house equity, maybe £200,000 or so. £1 for every £10,000 owned by the Duke of Westminster, and maybe £1 for every £150,000 owned by Elon Musk.

I myself had a great many problems with HMRC long ago. Partly but not entirely self-inflicted, and all now (long ago, over a decade ago) resolved to my satisfaction. I never ever encountered a bureaucracy as shambolic (as well as, in some cases, unpleasant) as HMRC. Not in Eastern Europe, not in the former Soviet Union, not in the USA (which came close, at times).

Look at them: Charles, Anne, Edward, Andrew, Harry (formerly known as “Prince”), William. Are any of them beyond mediocre in intellect, character, or in any way other than unearned and unmerited wealth? Most of them do not even pay taxes.

Meanwhile, Kelvin McKenzie, formerly of the Sun “newspaper”, exposes his ignorance once again:

McKenzie seems unaware that there is more to tax than income tax and inheritance tax. To give the obvious example (obvious at least to anyone better-informed than McKenzie), everyone pays VAT, a tax which is a major contributor to State funds, and is paid disproportionately by the poorer part of the population.

I have to admit that I have little interest in the minutiae of it all, but from the ruthless, Ayn Rand, callous self-interest point of view, the Mulatta has, as they say, “played a blinder”.

Putin’s decision to invade, as such, was not a mistake, but the decision to invade without proper preparation, without a proper plan, without having eliminated Zelensky, and with no proper logistics in place, was more than a mistake. It was criminally negligent. The GRU and General Staff should be purged, cut to the bone. Start again, as Stalin did.

It could have been done swiftly, with minimal hurt and damage.

Where can I get one of those? Or both.

True, but remember how Blair, and Brown in particular, worshipped the banking “industry” (sometimes useful but basically parasitic service industry).

More thoughts about the “mini-Budget”

Seems that “the markets” are dropping like a stone.

I mean, a simple-minded, almost cretinous Budget, announced by a woolly-headed n****r posing as Chancellor of the Exchequer; then we have a semi-educated half-caste with a “degree” in Hospitality Management posing as Foreign Secretary, and a stupid and ridiculous woman (who only became an MP on her back), actually posing as Prime Minister….what could possibly go wrong?

Jesus Christ! Is that stupid lot the best “the great Conservative Party” (in the words of Disraeli, his sentence ending “which destroys everything“…) can do? And is that hopelessly banal package of economic measures the summation of their thoughts?

The Jew-Zionists are behind much of the attack on free speech. About 90% of it.

I remember when, in the 1980s, a load of caravan-dwelling “travellers” decided to camp on Hampstead Heath, near the opulent house of “socialist” humbug Michael Foot. Suddenly, the great champion of the “rights” of the Gypsies and “travellers” (Irish tinkers) was against them camping near his house…

At last the Russian high command is starting to think truly tactically, meaning in this case obliquely.

It will be recalled that the Iraqi Army flooded large areas at one time, in the 1980s and later, both when fighting Iran and when fighting the “Allied forces” (USA, mainly).

I made that point a few days ago on the blog, citing the dictum of Clausewitz about how the ratio “moral” or morale vis a vis the “material” is 3:1.

We tend to forget that, though the southeastern part of Ukraine is a war zone, that does not mean that all areas suffer continuous fighting. Far from it. The Ukraine is about 3x the size of the UK, and nearly 5x the size of England. The southeastern parts known as the Donbass or Don Basin (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) are, together, about half the size of England.

Pound sliding, inflation stoking, and recession likely

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-62923994

Still think that closing down the economy for almost 2 years (because a virus was supposedly killing one out of every thousand people, mostly aged and/or with serious pre-existing health problems), and while doling out “free” money to individuals and companies via “furlough” payments, grants, “loans” etc, was a good policy? Think again.

A delusionary time, but what happens once the funeral of the late Queen has been held?

The death of the late Queen, and the consequent ritual arrangements and spectacles, is occupying the msm in the UK to an almost (?) unprecedented extent.

It may be that the Diana death hysteria of 1997, about which I have heard, and the Silver Jubilee of 1977, were similar; I cannot say, having been out of the UK when those two events occurred. In 1977, I was in Rhodesia, and in 1997 I was in Kazakhstan.

In fact, I only heard of the Diana incident 2-3 days after it happened, when I attended a regular Monday morning meeting at my office in Almaty, the then capital.

The British Embassy opened a book of condolence, and I was told by one of my Embassy contacts that, out of all the ~70 British residents (in the city) of which the Embassy was aware, I was the only one who had not signed (though not because I was hostile to Diana, but because of simple lack of interest).

My non-signing may have also been noted because, about 10 months previously, I had attended by invitation a royal reception at the Ambassador’s official Residence, where I had met and briefly chatted to Prince Charles, as he then was. Also, because I was at the Embassy quite often, at least a couple of times per week.

I have blogged in the past about how, on my return to London a few weeks later, friends told me about the collective psychosis (?) that had descended (on London at least), with pubs full of blubbing drinkers etc.

I am now thinking ahead to the day, or perhaps two or three days after the funeral of the late Queen (next Monday, 19 September 2022). What then?

We as a nation (insofar as Britain still is a nation) face huge economic problems, as well as ingrained social problems. The cloud of illusion all too obvious this week on TV, in the Press etc will blow away, and the country may come down to Earth with a very hard jolt.

The sentiment around the enormous queues going to see the late Queen’s coffin etc is somewhat illusory. The hundreds of thousands of people shuffling toward Westminster, or lining the Mall, are still only about 1% of the whole UK population. The vast majority, almost all in fact, seem to be English/British, i.e. white, and most (that I have seen in photos, on TV etc), are middle-aged or elderly.

This will all look very different in six months’ time.

I still think that the most telling thing about Greta Thunberg is how the decadent mainstream media, politicians etc at least pretend to take this uneducated and afflicted girl (now 19) as some kind of sage, when actually she has nothing to offer. It says something about the world we are in today.

“Jack” Monroe, the “Bootstrap Cook”; some thoughts about “poverty”

I thought that it was worth reposting those tweets, which refer to the Twitter storm around “Jack” Monroe, aka “Bootstrap Cook” (mentioned in yesterday’s blog).

I have no particular animus against “Bootstrap Cook”, and I should imagine that many find her recipes and other advice very useful [see https://cookingonabootstrap.com/category/recipes-food/], but it is clear that she herself is not (now) in what most people would regard as poverty.

As to my own experiences of “poverty”, I have had some pretty low moments from time to time over the years, for example after I returned to the UK in Spring 1998, after a few months living in Egypt [https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/03/07/when-i-was-not-arrested-in-egypt/].

Was I myself “in poverty” when I returned to London? It certainly seemed so!

Think living in a single room in a flat (provided by a friend of a friend— eventually, and very belatedly, months later, paid for by Housing Benefit). Think living largely off tiny State benefit for 3-4 months (monies also delayed for weeks). Think having to be a little bit “creative” in finding ways to travel around London, and equally “creative” in finding out how to increase supply of food and reading material (mainly books).

Yet only a few years before, I had quite often been paid, as Counsel, £1,000 or more for often quite brief (less than half a day) appearances in the High Court or elsewhere.

Later, living in the former Soviet Union in 1996-97, my home was a kind of large penthouse with a very wide wraparound balcony, I had a former MVD car and driver to ferry me to my office etc, a Rolex Seadweller on my wrist, and I rarely carried less than USD $5,000 on my person.

Incidentally, barristers reading this might sneer at the modesty of those High Court fees (perhaps a tenth or a twentieth of the fees some now get and even back then received), but this was 1993-95, nearly 30 years ago, and I was only just out of pupillage (on-the-job training). Anyway, it seemed good at the time to me.

What those born into wealth usually fail to know, having never experienced it, is how quickly a comfortable lifestyle can disappear, without personal capital or family money as a safety net.

When I was living on pennies —and my wits— in the London of March-June 1998, I often walked past Julie’s restaurant in Notting Hill, a restaurant patronized by film stars and other “celebrities”, and a place which I had previously visited several times, only 2-3 years before, and arriving in a large white Mercedes (a girlfriend’s car).

Maybe 3 years later, in 1998, I would have been unable to buy a coffee in the same restaurant, and I wondered whether those staring out of the windows could perceive somehow just how poor I was (maybe a subjective and resentful thought: after all, the Rolex may have gone, but I was still clad in an Austin Reed overcoat and Dents leather gloves etc).

There is no need for me to say more about that very pinched time in my life. Adolf Hitler had it worse, in the Vienna of 1909-1912. Eventually, my several months of poverty came to an end and then, less than a year after I had returned penniless to London, I was spending time living in a villa in the Caribbean, with a private beach (in effect), though those sometimes pleasant months sadly did not become sybaritic years (though I did spend much of 1999 in and around the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico— several Caribbean islands, and the Gulf Coast of Florida).

I later had more ups and downs, but that is enough for today.

I do not know a great deal in detail about “Jack” Monroe, the Bootstrap Cook, but I would guess that she knows a lot about “precarious” life in the Britain of today. Occasional poverty, occasional plenty, but not much security either way.

Many many people in Britain in 2022 are part of that “precariat”. This has political implications. Labour was the party of the industrial “proletariat”, mainly, a class which is now all but non-existent. “Bootstrap Cook”, leaving aside her personal predilections, is in that sense far more typical of the masses than would be the Soviet-style miner, rail worker, or other member of the organized labour force, insofar as such people still exist in the UK.

If there were a credible social-national movement in the UK, the “Bootstrap Cook” would probably not support it, but the “precariat” in general would, especially as inflation, low pay, and low State benefits all start to bite.

Well, £600 is not a fortune for a watch these days (any of my one-time Rolex Seadwellers would be £10,000-£15,000 in 2022), but I take her point.

…on the other hand, Bootstrap Cook is, after all, from Essex, the home of “bling”…

Meanwhile, though the @norfolkchatter1 Twitter account has disappeared, the storm around the Bootstrap Cook has, if anything, intensified, with many Twit-people (including the terminally “woke”) supporting her, but also with many others either criticizing her or demanding to know exactly how much capital or income she really has at her disposal, and asking whether she is exploiting people who donate to her when they really cannot afford to do so.

Legitimate questions, arguably, though it is almost axiomatic that the poor (however defined) do donate more generally than the wealthy or not poor (however defined), relative to income. Also, people are assumed to be compos mentis; if they want to donate to someone, that is their choice. There are many worthwhile-seeming appeals around: see, e.g. https://www.gofundme.com/f/judith-thorpe-funeral-children-fund; and https://www.gofundme.com/f/please-if-you-can-help-to-keep-our-boy-safe.

[Incidentally, I do not know anyone involved in either of the two GoFundMe appeals above; I just happened to see them].

“Covid” “panicdemic”

Looks like reality has started, finally, to break through…

Late tweets seen

Sometimes I wonder what, WHAT, would make the mass of British people wake up to the “panicdemic”, the nonsense measures such as facemask-wearing that were part of the scam, or to the “support Ukraine” propaganda or, as in that tweet, the very real dangers of the “Covid” “vaccines”, but I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that nothing, nothing at all, will awaken the masses. A “victory” by a football team, or whatever absolute shite is on “reality” (unreality) TV that week, and the real and important issues are forgotten again.

Maybe after the nuclear war with Russia that so many have been brainwashed into (as they imagine) wanting to see, the survivors will see their reality more clearly.

RAF, Royal Navy, and the defence of the UK

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11116917/RAF-jobs-boss-quits-amid-claims-offers-white-men-paused-meet-diversity-targets.html

Job offers to white male recruits of the RAF have effectively been paused to meet diversity targets, defence sources have claimed. 

Women and ethnic minorities are reportedly being favoured in recruitment drives to meet ‘impossible’ targets, which has prompted the Head of Recruitment at the RAF to resign in protest. 

The officer, a female herself, left the post amid concerns that hiring restrictions could undermine the strength of the service, according to sources.

Sources claim recruiters within the RAF have been told to temporarily pause offering roles to white male recruits in favour of women and ethnic minorities.

Head of the RAF Air Chief Marshall Sir Mike Wigston has been accused of willing to compromise the security of the UK to improve diversity within the force at a crucial time when threats from Russia and China loom.

Last year, Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, Head of the armed forces, spoke publicly about the importance of striving for more diversity and that it was all about ‘woeful’ statistics. 

‘The woefulness of too few women,’ he said. ‘The woefulness of not reflecting the ethnic, religious and cognitive diversity of our nation.’ “

[Daily Mail]

Ha. The idea that the UK’s skeleton air force and skeleton navy can protect the UK from such behemoths as China and Russia is somewhere between a bad joke and a complete delusion.

In any case, China has expressed no intention at any time of invading the UK offensively. Indeed, why should it, when huge numbers of Chinese are actually living here, when more are arriving daily, and when the Boris-idiot government of clowns has invited most of of the present residents of Hong Kong, millions of them, to migrate to the UK?

Look around pretty much any English town or city and note the hordes of Chinese.

In the famous words of Sun Tzu, “to win without war— this is the supreme excellence” [Sun Tzu, The Art of War].

As for Russia, the Soviet Union collapsed a long time ago, officially 31 years ago (1991) but in reality around 1989, some 33 years ago.

The Soviet Union, though aiming overall for stability rather than conquest after the 1960s, might still have invaded Western Europe (including the UK) in the 1970s or 1980s, but since then the Russian Federation has not harboured any ideas of invading the west of Europe. Indeed, the very idea is laughable.

In the 1990s, carpetbagging companies, firms, and individuals (the last mainly Jews) ripped off the Russian people relentlessly. Geopolitically, NATO (meaning the New World Order conspiracy) poked Russia incessantly, and showed bad faith by establishing NATO/US bases around Russia, in places only a few miles from Russia’s borders.

I could see this situation developing in the 1990s. Now, it has led to what we see in Ukraine— actual warfare with Russia, with the Kiev regime of the Jew Zelensky as NATO/US/NWO proxy.

Russia today presents no danger to the UK, unless the UK continues to join in with the USA (NWO, in reality) in encircling and threatening Russia, as well as arming and assisting the Kiev regime.

From where comes the danger to the British people? From Russia? No. From China? No.

Externally, the main and in fact almost sole real threat to Britain comes from the cross-Channel migration-invasion, now running at 500-1,000 invaders daily.

Not only has the Royal Navy not stopped the cross-Channel invasion, it has actually helped to provide a shuttle service to bring more of the bastards onto our shores. The same is true of Border Force (so-called; many prefer “Border Farce“).

What about the RAF? Well, I’m sure that they fly over the Channel taking lots of pretty pictures of the boats and ships ferrying the migrant invaders to UK shores…

Senior officers of the paper-shuffling type now “in command” of our navy and air force not only would not be much good, in all likelihood, were a conventional invasion ever to happen, but would in any case have only pitiful forces with which to repel it. The same, pretty much, would be true of the British Army.

Painted ship[s, and planes] on a painted ocean“…

From where, then, does the threat to Britain, to the British people, come, if not from Russia or China? From within.

Britain has been weakened, and wounded, perhaps mortally, by mass migration over decades, and particularly since the 1990s. I rarely go to London these days, having lived there on and off since 1976; when I do, I see a city largely foreign, even in the central and near-central areas. As for areas such as East London, forget it (there, it is a question of being in a totally alien environment, and if you see another white man, it is a case of “Hail, Robinson Crusoe“, pretty much).

The UK has also been weakened over decades by the trash pumped out on TV, radio, in films, etc. Much of it, though not all, can be laid at the door of the Jewish element. Jewish comedians, Jewish scribblers, and also those non-Jews who are generally the “useful idiot” type; pseudo-radicals. Look at the Opening Ceremony for the 2012 Olympic Games.

Then there is the sort of mass ideological subversion seen in “soaps”, TV ads etc. I have blogged from time to time about this, which surely must have reached a peak now:

Then there is subversion in the classroom, and the whole “woke” nonsense in universities etc.

For arguably the first time in British history, there really are now no external and proximate military threats to national sovereignty.

The real (major) threats facing Britain are not such as can be countered by the deployment of a tank, or a plane, or a battleship, even were those available.

There is all the difference in the world between fasting regularly as a spiritual discipline, and simply not having the money with which to feed yourself.

As to genuine fasting, used in various religions and occult disciplines, it works because the act of fasting according to a regular schedule imprints the greater perfection of the physical body on the etheric body and then on the astral body. A mild form of fasting would be the traditional Roman Catholic meat-free Friday, albeit that other food such as fish can be substituted.

…says Liz Truss, who was not exactly a noted or hard-working success story before she blagged her way into becoming an MP, which she accomplished at least partly on her back.

Even leaving aside the point in question, how ridiculous it is that “we” (as a people) tend to place those who simply have enormous amounts of money on such pedestals in the first place: Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos etc. Do they really have much or anything worthwhile to say beyond the ambit of their own businesses? Not that I have seen, anyway. Would “we” listen to their views if they suddenly had no money and were on the dole or whatever? I doubt it.

I wonder in what circle of Hell would Dante have placed such people?

London. Zoo. Monkeyworld.

My own take on all that is that the “Conservative” Government is a fake, useless, and clueless but that the “Labour” Opposition, or non-opposition, is much the same.

Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer has nothing to say, and many voters may just think “better the devil you know“, and so will either abstain or vote Conservative. I see no enthusiasm anywhere for Labour, and while that perception is personal and unscientific, I think that opinion polls etc reflect the same.

Both main System parties are dying inside their armour.

Not that there is enthusiasm for the Conservative Party either. In fact, Liz Truss seems to be less popular (both among Con Party members and the general public) than Boris-idiot.

At present, in my view, we are very much in hung Parliament territory but, as we all know, elections accelerate the pace as polling day approaches and, while that may be in late 2022, it may only come in late 2024, over two years from now.

How disgusting. It should be illegal to import “declawed” cats. This is an American or Americanized trend. How anyone can do such a thing to a little cat is beyond me. I suppose that it appeals to materialistic persons, mainly women (arguende) who are “house-proud” and do not want their (probably tasteless) furniture or furnishings damaged.

As far as I am concerned, I have always been content to let my companion cat or cats “distress” leather armchairs etc. So what if they are slightly worn to look at? It means that they do not look vulgar and new. Better to let the furniture look a little “distressed”. Shabby chic, as people say.

Well-meaning (?) actions often lead to terrible results. An individual has to balance possible sins of commission against possible sins of omission. In the Spanish proverb, “do what you will, and pay for it“…

I agree with “EternalEnglish”. There are many other countries that I have no wish to visit, but Pakistan would be at or near the top of any list.

That tweet moved me to find out how many of the ~200 countries of the world I have at least visited. Turns out— only about 50, so I have not seen three-quarters of the countries of the world.

I have not seen Latin America south of Panama, and even within Europe have never been to Portugal, Denmark, Norway, Finland, or Sweden (well, I did get to Malmo once, in 1982, on a ferry from West Germany, but was refused entry).

I have also not seen any of the former Yugoslav states, or Belarus, or the Baltic states, or Malta.

Actually, there are only a few individual places that I both have not seen but also might want to see, though the desire is not strong. Maybe St. Petersburg (I have only seen Moscow), as well as Oulu, Baden-Baden, Budapest (I have spent time in Hungary, but mainly in the southeast and at Lake Balaton).

As usual in the UK these days, we see a lack of strategic thought and plan.

I think that small children should be with their mothers, not carted off to nurseries, creches etc, but in a socio-economic milieu where women are almost forced to work for family-economic reasons, that is rather a counsel of perfection.

There is also the point that so many mothers now are “single mothers”, thus intensifying the financial pressures.

Pay…at the next election“? Hardy ha ha. When there is a fake binary choice between two “main parties” that are at root similar, with a few “controlled” (((controlled))) fake protest-vote parties to reinforce the illusion of choice?

I found buried treasure of a sort today.

I was in a large Sainsbury supermarket about 10 miles from home. I happened to notice two things: that it had a currency-exchange kiosk, and that I, in my wallet, had a US $10 bill, which I had more or less forgotten about; I must have had it for a decade or more.

It turned out that I could exchange the $10 without some bs minimum commission. I did. £7.21. Better than a poke in the eye, anyway. The kiosk, though, was unable to exchange a second note in the wallet, a Cuban 5-peso bill. Probably worthless anyway.

The lady in the kiosk was curious to see the Cuban note, and told me that she was from Ukraine. I wonder how many are here, and whether she came recently (I presume not).

I would say “every little helps“, but I think that that is the slogan of some other supermarket.

I know, personally, of two people, in two separate countries, who have each had at least one (I think two or three) “Covid” “vaccine” shots. Both are now facing heart surgery, neither having previously suffered from cardiac problems. One triple bypass, one quadruple bypass. I myself have not been injected with the “vaccine(s)” and have not been unwell with “Covid” or anything else. Not yet anyway. I shall not be allowing anyone to inject me with these “vaccines”.

It is “almost” an insult to see these monkeys on sticks pretend to vie for the position of leader of the (misnamed) Conservative Party, and so Prime Minister of this country.

One non-European, with billions of pounds in wealth, a former Goldman Sachs vulture banker; the other, a dishonest woman without a shred of principle, and who only became an MP in the first place on her back.

Soon, fewer than 200,000 Conservative Party members (about 1 in every 200 citizens, i.e. persons of voting age) will decide which of those empty vessels will become, automatically, Prime Minister. It is sick. It is also stupid. As are the candidates.

Which one will win that contest? Probably the Truss woman, because the Conservative Party members are quite likely to prefer someone who is at least English, and someone who is not a billionaire and part of an Indian billionaire dynasty.

I get the impression that the great British public, many of them, loved being paid to stay home, loved free money (as they thought and were encouraged to think), and now are puzzled by the spike in inflation (which might reach 12% soon), and by the consequent fall in living standards as pay and benefits fail to keep pace, and as the value in saved money is eroded.

Then there were other policies, such as “quantitative easing”. All have been stoking inflation.

Of course, hucksters in what passes for a government are attributing the economic problems of the UK (and Europe more widely) to Putin or his invasion of the Ukrainian failed state, problems with grain exports from Ukraine, even to “climate change” and, indeed, to “Covid” itself. Anything but misconceived government actions: “lockdown” shutdowns, furlough payments, unchecked business grants and loans from public funds, massively huge monies wasted on “test and trace” etc, not to mention the crazy sanctions against Russia.

For 1-2 years, the “British” government (in reality, “ZOG”) paid much of the population to stay at home watching TV, eating delivered pizzas and drinking far too much. Now, there is an explosion of ill-health, of social and psychological problems, and of inflation.

The DDR (East Germany) was a strange anomaly of history, and an odd place to see. I was there for a couple of days in 1988, only a year or so before it crumbled to nothing. More like a facade of a state than a real one.

I was in transit by road from Poland to West Germany, crossed over (literally, via a bridge over the river Neisse) at Gorlitz, a little-used crossing-point, and stayed overnight (unofficially— I bribed the desk clerk) in a non-approved modern hotel at Bautzen. I was unaware at the time that Bautzen was also the location of arguably the worst prison of the DDR, where the most-reviled dissidents were incarcerated in terrible conditions.

Officially, transit-visa holders were supposed to stay at an “Interhotel”, of which there was only one on my route, near Dresden. Pay 10x as much (10x more even than my inflated/bribe price) and get snooped upon as well. Nein danke.

The desk clerk at Bautzen asked me and my companion (who was the driver) not to use the bar (he supplied a couple of bottles of good-quality East German beer). The car was parked in a locked garage out of sight. He also asked us not to open doors for anyone, and said that the Volkspolizei (political police) checked the hotel register at 0700 every morning. Very East German, as was the water supply: warm water in the bathroom washbasin, but none in the shower. Not a maintenance problem— the shower was designed to dispense only cold water! A 20thC Sparta.

Still, leaving aside those inconveniences and worries (we were not written into the hotel register), the hotel was actually quite comfortable. Large rooms with picture windows, spacious public areas, pleasant carpeting, speedy lifts etc. It might have been even a 4-star in the West, if one overlooked the cold shower and the chance of being arrested by the Volkspolizei…

East Germany was, like Scarborough (or was it Skegness?) in the famous old British rail-travel poster, “so bracing“…

Back then, people said that the two Germanies were like an orange and an apple, impossible to stick back together. Now, huge effort and money has tried to make it happen, though only partly-successfully.

East Germany/DDR is thought of as having been a rather small country, but that is a relative fact: nearly 42,000 square miles, so not much smaller than England (just over 50,000 square miles), nearly one-and-a-half times the area of Scotland (30,000 sq, miles), and over five times the size of Wales (8,000 sq. miles).[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Germany].

The game is now again in the hazard. Putin’s closure of gas supply (to less than a third of the normal flow) will hit Germany hard. Anything could happen.

The answer to the overall question is the Threefold Social Order: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_threefolding.

Everyone, meaning every white European UK citizen, should have the means of basic personal support, meaning shelter, food, medical/dental help, education, local transport etc. That may mean or include Basic Income provided by the State.

I understand the misgivings of those who say that Basic Income gives the State too much power over the individual, the family etc but, especially for the poorer people of Britain, the petty office bods of the State already have that kind of power. Only the affluent and wealthy really have any significant measure of “freedom” in this society.

Owen Jones took it upon himself, several years ago when I still had a Twitter account (i.e. before a pack of Jews contrived to have me expelled) to tweet to disgraced sex pest —and depressive— MP, the Jew-lobby puppet John Woodcock (now posing as “Lord Walney”) that he should block me. Woodcock complied at once, with no questions asked.

Owen Jones and Woodcock/Walney are both System fakes. See also https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/04/a-brief-word-about-owen-jones/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/02/09/diary-blog-9-february-2021-including-further-assessment-of-john-woodcock/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/05/04/john-woodcock-barrow-and-furness-and-the-general-election-2017/.

Even a stopped clock is right once or twice a day (depending on whether 24-hour or 12-hour). Same with Ash Sarkar and many others.

I have mentioned before on the blog that I knew someone who was able to buy the freehold of her semi-detached Victorian villa leasehold property in Little Venice (London), valued at the time (about 1980) at £100,000 (in fact she got a 33% discount, so bought it for about £67,000). When she finally sold it in 2005, that same house, in poor condition, was sold for £1.4M, if I recall aright. Somewhere around that figure, anyway. Exactly similar houses in the same street were valued at over £3.5M circa 2016, and I see today that a house in the same road, only a couple of doors down, is for sale at a lower price than that but still pretty damned expensive at £3,150,000.

90% of people who do not inherit real property or very significant other property are effectively locked out of the present UK system in terms of way of life etc. It is not even just a matter of not owning an appreciating property such as a house, but of having to pay rent to (objectively) parasites (rentier landlords), thus having less real disposable income for life. Also, insecurity of tenure.

Incidentally, I wonder whether the lower prices (as against a few years ago, pre-panicdemic), mean that plenty of house-owners in areas such as Little Venice are or have been cashing in their chips and, like rats leaving a sinking ship, departing from London? After all, £3M buys you a pretty nice country house almost anywhere in the Home Counties or shires.

Alison Chabloz: case update

It is reported that Alison Chabloz, persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter, has been sentenced to 22 weeks imprisonment by District Judge Nina Tempia, sitting at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

That means that, subject to any appeal, Alison Chabloz will have to spend the next 11 weeks in prison, unless released earlier on licence (and wearing an electronic tag). Eleven weeks from today is 30 June 2022.

Reports indicate that Alison’s trial Counsel, Adrian Davies, applied for bail pending appeal, but was refused. Such application can be renewed, with a good possibility of success, before a Crown Court judge in chambers, but I do not have any information at present as to whether Alison will in fact pursue appeal to the Crown Court.

The maximum sentence for the offence was 6 months, i.e. 26 weeks, so Alison may feel that an appeal is justified, particularly in view of the (reported but unconfirmed) fact that the Prosecution mooted 9-15 weeks (assuming, as I say, that that is correct) under the relevant sentencing guidelines.

If and when I discover Alison’s new prison number, I shall publish it (and her place and address of incarceration) on the blog, so that people can send her cards, books and (via the official system) small amounts of money. During her last “stretch”, she greatly appreciated postcards and other gifts: see https://alisonchabloz.com/2022/04/13/last-post/#more-8648.

The UK, now a country where people get imprisoned for singing satirical songs, especially (in fact only) if (((the usual suspects))) are mentioned…

“Let Sporus tremble –”What? that thing of silk,
Sporus, that mere white curd of ass’s milk?
Satire or sense, alas! can Sporus feel?
Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?
Yet let me flap this bug with gilded wings,
This painted child of dirt that stinks and stings;
Whose buzz the witty and the fair annoys,
Yet wit ne’er tastes, and beauty ne’er enjoys
.”

[Alexander Pope, Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot]

Six hundred of the bastards! In a single day…

True (and crazy in a way) but at least they will not be in the UK, contaminating what is left of our racial root-stock.

Ha ha! Had not seen that previously. Like a civilian and “panicdemic” version of Dad’s Army.

Twitter, as I have noted before, is a very strange “business”, one that has lost literally billions since it started. In fact it has only posted profit results for 2018 and 2019; all other years since its foundation have been loss-making years, often stonkingly so:

https://www.statista.com/statistics/274563/annual-net-income-of-twitter/

Twitter and its finances are not at all transparent, despite the huge amounts written about Twitter. Look at the Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter. Lots of material but not very enlightening on finances, especially profit and loss.

A “conspiracy theory” might be to think that Twitter has some other, darker, purpose than to make money. Still, it could be true.

On this day a year ago

Note how many tweets and tweeters have been removed by Twitter (Jewish-Zionist) censorship since I wrote that blog post a year ago.

OK, but from another perspective, those Ukrainian civilians are not being treated at all brutally, no more than would be a protest crowd in London; arguably, far less brutally. Russian weaponry may incite fear, but the soldiers themselves do not, it seems.

As previously blogged, the Boris-idiot government will make sure that everything wrong in Britain for years to come will be blamed on Russia and Putin. For one thing, all the money wasted on two years of “panicdemic” propaganda and useless, pointless, “measures” (lockdowns, shutdowns, “furlough” payments, billions in fraudulent “loans”, tens of billions on completely useless “test and trace” etc), and consequent inflation caused by erosion of the real value of the pound sterling. Now we read that inflation may top 10% in a year. That is the fault of this government, not Putin’s.

…and soon, even to say these things online is going to be made a crime, via the Online Harms Bill/Act.

An evil little monkey.

Can you believe that the Western world is led by the USA, which is “led” by idiots of the Pelosi sort, and by Biden, a demented old fellow who can hardly get the day of the week right? Not that the UK is any better: Boris-idiot, Liz Truss, shopworn Indian “clever boy” Sunak, Priti Patel, Sajid Javid, Ben Wallace (etc). Hardly any are really even British.

The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan. White Genocide.

Very interesting, and very true.

Ukraine

A few more thoughts.

As Kiev inhabitants continue to flee, the food stocks in Kiev will last longer than the 2+ weeks predicted by Zelensky. How long they will last, though, is almost anyone’s guess. I presume that the defending forces will have stocks for far longer than the civilian population.

I have been looking at Google Maps and Google Earth to see the layout of Kiev, a city which I have never visited. I see not just the river Dnieper, but other streams, marshes etc. Approach from the northeast and east is difficult. The Dnieper cannot easily be bridged almost immediately south of Kiev because of the width of the river (dammed in several places for hydroelectricity). The same is true immediately north of the city. There is one crossing on the northern outskirts.

There have been isolated missile strikes in Kiev, probably to frighten the population into leaving.

I note a strange fact: despite the Russian forces having done huge damage to some of the Ukrainian cities, there has been no attack on Russian cities (except in the disputed Donbass area) by Ukrainian/Kiev-regime forces.

To me, that indicates either that the Kiev regime simply has no forces capable of attacking the small Russian towns near the border (Donetsk, a major city, is right on the border of Russia but on the notionally “Ukrainian” side), or that Zelensky is trying to maintain the “victim” narrative, i.e. that Russian forces are attacking civilians, but that the Ukrainian forces are not (except in Donetsk and the Donbass generally).

In colloquial terms, Zelensky has “played a blinder” in terms of international public relations. He is perceived now, in much of the West, not as a Jew clown, and as the figurehead puppet-on-a-stick of an ultra-wealthy and corrupt Jewish cabal, and with a $40,000,000 home in Florida (and God knows how much in offshore bank accounts), but as the brave Tribune of the People, a people under merciless attack by a ruthless and powerful enemy.

Ukraine has public relations but (it seems) scarcely any army, navy, or air force.

That tentative conclusion is supported by the fact that no attack was made on the now-famous “40-mile-long” Russian column north of Kiev. Even a defensive fortress-Kiev plan would, surely, allow for attacks on supply columns and the like?

Put simply, that column was not attacked because there was no-one to attack it.

Despite the huge destruction in Kharkov and in the smaller southern cities, I think that Putin wants Kiev to fall without too much damage, if possible. He may even have some idea of repopulating it with Russians, on a permanent basis.

Having said that, my assessment has been and remains that, if Putin can only “win” by flattening every city in Ukraine, he will do it.

I do not claim that it is original to call that ship’s operator the Border Farce, but it is certainly the case.

I think we know in our hearts that, somewhere down the line, the results of all this will have to be dealt with harshly, come what may.

Largely a result of the 30+ years of poverty and its consequences, under a succession of Jewish-Zionist-dominated cabal “governments”.

In the circumstances, £350 a month to house some refugees seems a modest-enough amount as “danger money”…

Is the USA facing economic eclipse?

Facemask nonsense

Went to a small town today. Saw a few very elderly (even by my standards!) people still wearing facemasks, poor old things. They obviously not only believed all the propaganda but also have not realized that the world has moved on…

Nearest public square— firing squad (in an ideal world)…

Ironic that the Conservative Party withdrew after a few days its only true election poster, the “Devil Eyes” one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Labour,_New_Danger

Wise words, the voice of brief but bitter experience. When I was in Southern Africa (Rhodesia and Botswana) for a while in 1977, I met a number of people with varied military experience around the world: British ex-Marines and Paras, American ex-U.S. Rangers, ex-U.S. Marines and others, the odd New Zealander, some South Africans, and a Portuguese who had fought against Frelimo in Mozambique; even an Israeli.

I recall one Brit, conventional military provenance unknown but (I think) genuine or real, telling people his experiences fighting with the notorious “Colonel” Callan (in fact a Greek Cypriot and former Parachute Regiment corporal) in Angola in 1976. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costas_Georgiou.

According to the said British person, there were wannabee mercenaries from the UK, with no military experience at all, who had been flown to Africa, signed up to the FNLA “army”, given weapons and uniforms, and then pretty much turned out into the field, into battle, fighting experienced African communist/nationalist guerrilla fighters and Cuban Army units.

Apparently, many of the Brit “mercenaries” did not even know enough to get themselves down on the ground when the enemy opened fire! Many were killed not very long after arrival, massacred in contacts with MPLA or Cuban units in the long grass of Southern Africa.

Oddly enough, the Brit telling the story defended “Callan” (plainly a murderous psychopath, who by mid-1976 had been captured, then tried and executed in Loanda), saying that he would get angry because some of the British would-be mercenaries refused to fight.

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luanda_Trial.

Whatever the truth of the above, the fact is that many Brits and others are now volunteering for war service with the Kiev regime. Some may have good though misguided motivations, others may scent loot. Those with little battle experience may not last very long.

Incidentally, two of the socialist “international observers” at that trial were Jack Dromey and Stephen Sedley.

The first, then a heavily-bearded and fierce militant, married Harriet Harman six years later and, like her, became an MP and Blairite government minister: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Dromey.

Stephen Sedley, a barrister, was later Sir Stephen, and a Lord Justice of Appeal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Sedley. I myself appeared in front of him as Counsel a couple of times, when he sat as a judge of the High Court in the 1990s.

Small world?
