Kate Ferguson, who is apparently Westminster Correspondent at the Sun “newspaper”, and who apparently does not know that the phrase she is trying to use is a variant of “…and with one bound he was free”… I mean, this is not some ignorant pleb tweeting. Oh, no…wait…

Yet another unintended comment on the state of British “journalism” and “journalists” today.

There are few considered more anti-Israel or “antisemitic” than me, but credit where due— this is, on the face of it, a tremendous achievement.

The “virus” fall-out

The various Government measures to mitigate, not the virus but the Government’s own policies in relation to it (“lockdowns”, “tiers”, quarantining, etc) bought off real popular opposition last year. The Government took a leaf from the book of Aneurin Bevan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aneurin_Bevan], who said that he had bought off opposition from medical doctors to the establishment of the NHS by having “stuffed their mouths with gold” (i.e. allowing senior doctors (“consultants”) to take on private work as well as receiving relatively high NHS pay).

“Furlough” payments ensured that, in 2020, many received effectively the same pay as before, but for no work (“furlough” was capped at 80% of net pay to a maximum of £2,500 p.c.m., but that was close to 100% for most, when the costs of just having a job are factored in: travel, snacks, drinks, clothes etc).

Many others were able to “work from home”, which might have had disadvantages for some but many advantages for others: no travel costs; a saving of (?) 1-5 hours of travel on the day, depending on the commute; the possibility to organize the day to suit the employee; no “boss” people supervizing the employee directly, or able to see what the employee is doing during the working day.

Naturally, the higher-paid working from home would have been, and are, in a better position than the lower-paid: perhaps large detached houses, perhaps also with swimming pools, tennis courts, large gardens in which to relax etc. One could imagine some, working in between swimming, and perhaps drinking Chardonnay ordered online and delivered to the door (I seem to remember that, even nearly 20 years ago, Sainsbury’s would not only deliver my wife’s orders, but actually take the stuff into the kitchen for her).

Also, companies started to demand Government help. Even those run by tax exiles such as Richard Branson. Some help was given.

Not everyone was taken care of by Government largesse. The self-employed, thhose running the smaller and one-man companies etc. The majority of the population, though, was shut up in both senses by Government order and Government money. Even the unemployed (etc) on Universal Credit, got a £20 a week increase.

Now, however, after much to-ing and fro-ing, we find ourselves back in “lockdown”.

Once again, the furlough is extended. Once again, failing businesses are, in some cases, being propped up, smaller airports among them. For how long, though?

Today, we heard that Newquay Airport (which I myself used a few times in the past) will be given money. I do not know whether other airports I used to use, e.g. Exeter and Southampton, are in a similar position.

Let us examine what might happen. Let us say that “the virus”, whether because of natural decline, the vaccine(s), whatever, disappears some time in 2021 from the UK. Air travel will take a long long time to recover, especially if countries are to insist on quarantines and “virus-free” certification. Will UK airports, airlines, ground services etc need or demand propping-up for years? Is that even possible?

We read that the UK Government can borrow money at very low, almost zero, interest at present. Good, but for how long?

We now read that the Government wants to reduce Universal Credit by £20 a week, while chucking those currently on it £500 in cash. There may be a revolt by Conservative MPs, and a possible Government defeat in the coming days.

The argument over UC payments presages coming disputes. No matter how much can currently be borrowed by the UK Government, eventually that will become unsustainable. What then? Already, State benefits paid to the unemployed are at their lowest since 1992 and, according to other calculation, overall benefits were not this low in real terms since the 1960s, which however was a era of, effectively, full employment.

The present government cannot simply, say, raise the State Pension (“Old Age Pension”, as was) entitlement age from 66, where it will be from 2022, to he age of 67, or 68, or 70, not without a massive backlash from voters aged over 65, and they are a half of all Conservative supporters: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-politics-47909281. They are also far more likely to vote.

In other words, if the present government hits the pensioners or those looking at shortly becoming pensioners, it is toast.

The Government is looking at the unemployed and others as targets because they are less significant electorally, though at the same time, 40% of UC claimants are actually not unemployed but are in low-paid work.

Unsurprisingly, Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak is not going to introduce a windfall wealth tax. He wants to extract money from the poor or poor-ish, while not dooming his party electorally.

What about demand in the economy? Already low. The poor spend all or almost all of what they have; they have no choice. The rich, given extra money, invest it, often in hedging assets: property, savings accounts, gold etc. It makes sense to give more to the poor and less to the rich (however defined).

Once the various mitigation measures tail off, unemployment —and discontent—– will soar.

One can see storms coming. God grant social-nationalism the way in which to take advantage of them for the good of the people. “For the good of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].

Meanwhile, the USA has concentration camps today, both at Guantanamo and elsewhere, including secret ones. The inmates are in many cases treated as badly or worse than were those in WW2 Germany, or even the Soviet Union’s GULAG operation. The American concentration camps have doctors too, as does the CIA.

Interesting.

Jewish privilege?

The “@Amy_amorie” Twitter account is usually worth seeing.

Or, with apologies to Orwell, “nigger” [etc] = bad language, but “gammon” = OK language…

Surprising, perhaps, that Andrew Neil put it that way, but then again he is very much pro-Jew and pro-Israel, and ranted a few times on TV (on his now-defunct late-night BBC2 show) about “Nazis”, “racists” etc. Demeaning (to him); it takes the gloss off his being the best political interviewer in the UK.

Prepare now…

The “new” politics (since the 1960s), now everywhere…

In the end, it will have to be confronted…

Late tweets

We shall see…

Peter Hitchens makes, once again, a good point, but fails to point out that the present Kiev regime, posing as the legitimate overnment of the Ukraine, is a complete Jewish-Zionist sham. All the top ministers are Jewish, and at least one is actually an Israeli!

The whole point of the law is its cool impartiality, its judgment of the facts by a jury, and of the law by an impartial, dispassionate judge. If judges are going to start offering politico-medical lectures from the bench, it changes us into a completely different kind of country. In effect, a defendant in such cases is on trial for his opinions, not his actions.

Does Judge Matthews desire such a state of affairs? I doubt it. In that case she should not do this again. But I fear someone else will. Much that we used to know and trust about this country is vanishing with amazing speed.” [Peter Hitchens, Daily Mail].

All very true. Part of the problem is that “District Judges” (the old stipendiary magistrates) are not, in the traditional sense, real “judges”. Mostly solicitors who have applied for these rather simple jobs, which however pay quite well (I think that a full-time DJ gets about £110,000 p.a. now).

Labour leadership contest

It has become clear over the past weeks that the stand-out preference, for the Jewish lobby at least, is Jess Phillips. Now she has “suspended” an “aide” because said aide (Muslim, judging by the name) tweeted anti-Israel comments before she was in Phillips’ employ.

https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/jess-phillips-suspends-key-aide-salma-hamid-anti-israel-tweets-antisemitism-labour-leadership-1.495280

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7877565/Jess-Phillips-suspends-one-key-aides-posting-offensive-antisemitic-tweets.html

It is thus also clear that Jess Phillips is willing to do anything to gain and retain the support of the Jewish/Zionist lobby.

The above Jewish Chronicle report is interesting also because the suspended “aide” is in fact Jess Phillips’ Constituency Office Manager. Now Jess Phillips is somewhere near the top of the list of MPs in terms of claiming expenses. She claims at least 50% more than most and double or even triple what some MPs claim. Within those expenses, she also “employed” her own husband as “Constituency Support Manager” from her election in 2015 until February 2019. In effect, she seems to have employed him as “House Husband”. We are not talking peanuts here. Something like £50,000 a year. No-one can say that Jess Phillips has not made the most of having blagged her way into becoming a MP.

https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/new-mp-jess-phillips-employs-9565645

I have myself blogged about Jess Phillips in the quite recent past:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/05/07/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-jess-phillips-story/

I suppose that Jess Phillips decided that it would be an easy hit for her opponents if she continued to “employ” her husband (something against Parliamentary rules for new MPs elected in or after 2017; but she was elected in 2015). That would seem to lead to the conclusion that she has had her eyes on Corbyn’s purple for a year at least.

I conclude also that the Zionist/Jewish/Israel lobby has decided to go for the candidate most willing to show herself or himself publicly as a complete doormat for Zionist and Israeli interests. Jess Phillips seems to fit. She is also very interested in money, as her expenses claims and other activities have proven.

Further, it seems that loyalty, for me personally a very high psychological value (after all, Meine Ehre heisst Treue…) means little to Jess Phillips. Her constituency office manager had worked for her for some time without a problem, and the tweets were all posted in the period 2014-2016, prior to that employment.

To gain the approval of the Jewish/Zionist lobby, Jess Phillips has thrown her employee (and in view of the intimacy of working relations between an MP and any constituency office manager, perhaps a friend) “under a bus”, in the oft-seen phrase.

The Zionist lobby has now laid down its arrogant “demands” to Labour: sign up to a document via which we shall control the Labour Party, its MPs, officers, members and supporters, or we shall destroy you.

https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/board-of-deputies-demands-labour-leadership-contest-race-candidates-sign-up-to-pledges-antisemitism-1.495274

Few Jews (<5%) vote Labour now anyway. The whole “community” numbers only 250,000-300,000 (though the statistics really need to be brought up to date and properly collated), so 5% of 250,000-300,000 = ~14,000 voters. What right have they to prioritize their own tribal interest(s)?

What makes “their” demands even more bizarre is that it was partly, indeed largely, because of the relentless attacks on Labour and Corbyn by Jewish Zionists in the Press, on radio, on TV and on social media that Labour lost the recent general election and lost it fairly badly (though in fact Labour still got 32.2% of the popular vote, as against 40% for the Conservative Party).

You can add to the above, the way in which “Labour” MPs (controlled or bribed or influenced by “the lobby”) attacked their own leader and Labour even during the election campaign itself!

I am not Labour, have never even voted for Labour, but if I were Labour, I would be disgusted at the antics of MPs such as Jess Phillips.

I have to admit, though, that she is cunning. Employment law was not something I specialized in when I was a practising barrister, so I hesitate to pronounce upon it now, but by suspending her constituency office manager rather than sacking her outright (or not doing anything), Jess Phillips can now say “I cannot comment because a disciplinary process is under way”…

Only complete subservience will now be acceptable to “the lobby”. Even Emily Thornberry, very pro-Jew, fairly pro-Israel and with a half-Jew husband (a High Court judge) is now unacceptable to “the lobby”!

EmilyThornberryIsraelLobby

[above, Emily Thornberry with her husband —at right— and the Israeli Ambassador, Mark Regev, at a Zionist banquet in London]

I think that I can see why “the lobby” is going with Jess Phillips. Not because she is part-Jew (though I suspect that she may be; however, I have so far found no direct evidence), but because she is willing to do anything to progress her political career, has no loyalty to anyone or anything (inc. the Labour Party, which she has called “just a f***ing rose”, after its symbol); because, also, she has no ideology or political principle and is not really a person of any education or culture. Malleable, biddable…

Greek Cyprus: the recent rape of an English girl by a feral pack of Israeli youths

What interests me is the entirely typical way in which (see below) the Jews’ lawyers conspired to blacken the name and/or reputation of the girl. It’s the sort of “pile-on” and conspiracy that we have seen happen in the political sphere too, not least in the UK. It happens when anyone has the courage and/or principle to stand up against “ZOG” or “the lobby”. Alison Chabloz has been but one such politically-hit victim.

I do have reservations about the conduct of the victim prior to the rape, but it would not be right for me to comment further, after her suffering at the hands of the Israeli rapists, suffering made worse by the typically-craven behaviour of the Greek Cypriot authorities.

I myself have been to Cyprus (once, in early 1999), but only to the Turkish-occupied Northern side. Back then, the border between the two sides was closed and relatively few British people went to the Northern side; before the 1974 invasion, though, there was a fairly large British expat community, part of which had been there since the days of British rule: see The Bitter Lemons of Cyprus, usually seen as Bitter Lemons, by Lawrence Durrell.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitter_Lemons

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_Durrell

I do not have much time for the “alt-Right” wastes of space, such as “Sargon of Akkad” (Carl Benjamin; he is one of the better ones, I suppose), but credit where due. Here [below] he defends freedom of expression and mentions the Alison Chabloz case:

More about Dominic Cummings and Boris-idiot

I have blogged several times about Dominic Cummings, the latest “lunatic in residence” at 10 Downing Street.

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/01/03/dominic-cummings-a-government-of-dystopia-and-lunacy-posing-as-genius/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/

Now his “plan” to recruit “weirdos and misfits” to rule the UK, at the same time making established civil servants sit regular exams, has been heavily criticized:

https://politicshome.com/news/uk/political-parties/conservative-party/news/109008/boris-johnson-facing-cabinet-anger-over

The dissonance is surely obvious to everyone except Cummings: he says that he wants to recruit people unfraid of rocking the boat, yet his plan to take away job security from the civil service (one of the reasons many join in the first place) is likely to make people afraid to rock the boat, or to say or do anything that a superior might think odd or wrong.

I should think that the resentment caused by the proposed Cummings “reforms” might lead to sabotage and even treachery. The Kremlin must be rubbing its hands…Oh, no…wait…

Actually, the present eminence of Cummings (and his boss, Boris-idiot) is symptomatic of the UK these days. Boris-idiot, who has messed up every job he ever had, now “advised” by a man whose only known attempt at creating something was an airline that folded after a single flight! Now that same man is yapping about how many at or near the top of government are incompetents unfit to rule or lead or even be employed. Hello? Hello?

Harry and MM

I disagree with Katie Hopkins on much, but not this (except that I have no wish at all to have the old Prince Harry, or any Prince Harry, or any prince, back again…)!

As far as I am concerned, I can do entirely without Harry and without the Royal Mulatta.

Had to laugh at Bette Midler castigating Piers Morgan (not that I like him much) for attacking Harry and MM. She said that he should be ashamed, because they are “half” Morgan’s age! Hardly. MM is 38, and will be 39 this year; Harry is now 35. Piers Morgan is 54.

I can see why she assumed that Harry and MM are younger than they are. Their naivety and youthful sense of entitlement and that the world revolves around them. In Harry’s case especially, he has always had his path smoothed, whereas in the case of MM, she was a Hollywood or off-Hollywood “star” of sorts, and we know how they are pampered.

Diary Blog, 3 January 2020

Just blogged (for the second time) about Dominic Cummings, the Boris-idiot “adviser” and circus ringmaster.

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/01/03/dominic-cummings-a-government-of-dystopia-and-lunacy-posing-as-genius/

Easy to laugh at, but withal quite serious. Maybe very serious.

Trump and Iran

The attack at Baghdad Airport will have one of three possible results:

  • Nothing
  • Out and out war between Iran and the USA
  • An oblique response from Iran.

No prize for guessing that I think that the third option is most likely. Outright war is impossible, a regional power without deliverable nuclear weapons against the world’s (still) only functioning superpower. So what would an “oblique response” be? Maybe something that hits the USA economically, maybe something such as the assassination of a head of state or government (keep your head down, Donald!), maybe the same but aimed not at the USA directly but at its allies.

Speculating in an admittedly not very original fashion, one might wonder whether Iran might not at some point launch an all-out missile and other attack on Israel. It might be said that Israel’s nuclear capability would render such an attack suicidal. True, but still, it could happen. A similar attack but on, eg, the United Arab Emirates. More likely. Or on Saudi.

As to Trump himself, I find myself wondering whether he has some physical problem with his brain. I was reading a few of his tweets. They seem abnormal yet not in the slightest intelligent. I suppose that the US President gets brain scans etc as part of the silly annual ritual of the President getting a clear bill of health. I suppose…

I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:
O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ ” Tommy, go away ” ;
But it’s ” Thank you, Mister Atkins,” when the band begins to play
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
O it’s ” Thank you, Mister Atkins,” when the band begins to play.

I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
They sent me to the gallery or round the music-‘alls,
But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ ” Tommy, wait outside “;
But it’s ” Special train for Atkins ” when the trooper’s on the tide

A Few Thoughts About 6 June 1944 and also (mainly) About 6 June 2019

Foreword

Well, here we are on 6 June 2019. Peterborough by-election day, but also the 75th commemoration of the Normandy Landings, aka D-Day. There has been wall-to-wall coverage on BBC News, ITV News and Sky News.

Preamble

This is not the place in which to discuss whether the Second World War could have been avoided (on the Western Front, in Western Europe generally; I think that it could have been). This is not the place in which to discuss whether the British Empire and the German Reich could have concluded an honourable armistice after the Fall of France (I think that they might have done; Germany made about ten separate offers).

It is important to note that these anniversaries are made use of by the Jewish Zionist element. Which is partly why they are pushed so hard on TV. Another chance to remind the masses about “the Nazis”, about how bad they supposedly were, and about how “necessary” it was to declare war on Germany, and eventually to defeat “the Nazis” (and so, Germany).

My own father was too young to be in the armed forces for much of WW2, though he was, near the end of the war, recruited by lot as a “Bevin Boy” (he was born and brought up in County Durham), and worked both in coal mining and later a shipyard (after the war, he became a professional footballer). Ironically, that service, far from the front lines of the war, killed him about 70 years later (via exposure to asbestos in a shipyard).

My maternal grandfather served as a soldier throughout WW2 and was both at Dunkirk and, rather later, in Burma.

Overview of my outlook re. the Second World War

My view of the war, even leaving aside my general sympathy with National Socialism in terms of ideology and aspiration, is that, on the Western Front, it need not have happened and should not have happened. I believe the same about the First World War, incidentally.

More

Born in 1956, I was brought up, as people were then, with “the War” as a constant backdrop. My grandfather talked scarcely at all about his war service with the British Expeditionary Force in 1939-40, or with the Army in Burma for much of the rest of the war, though it affected his health. He did give the odd bit of advice when I, aged maybe 7 or 8, was laying out my little Airfix plastic soldiers (various armies, but including, I think, German, British Eighth Army, Japanese and US Marines). I remember a couple of his comments, such as that patrolling soldiers should always be following one another in a line if in jungle, never abreast.

Had my grandfather not already been in uniform by reason of having been in the Territorial Army in 1939, he might never have served actively in the war at all, being at the time 38 or 39 years old (the usual cut-off age was 41). That’s Fate…

As mentioned above, people of my age who were brought up in the 1950s and 1960s always had “the War” there, around, like the woodsmoke and burning leaf smell of autumn in those days. The Germans were regarded by children of my age as honourable enemies (unlike the Japanese) and not some force of malign and almost cosmic evil, as the Jews try to make out now.

The Jewish “holocaust” propaganda and historical distortion that is now pervasive had not then really started in a big way. Also, the unspoken narrative was that Britain had suffered and struggled and “won the war”. The —in fact, overwhelming— input of the USA and the Soviet Union was popularly regarded (not only by children) as being at best no more (even taken together!) than that of the UK.

Churchill (as myth) hung over the scene like a Mount Rushmore presidential sculpture or —with apology to Jane Russell— like a thundercloud, only equalled by the leader of the “German hordes”, Hitler.

In the early 1960s, my grandparents never missed All Our Yesterdays (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Our_Yesterdays_(TV_series) and I usually watched it with them.

The UK at that time (1960s) was still basically homogenous racially, certainly outside London or some port cities. In places like Reading, where I was born, and on the edge of which I lived until age 10 (my family was then in Sydney for 3 years), there were few blacks and browns (in fact, barring a family of Anglo-Indians whom we knew, there were almost none). The only black I recall seeing in England in the early/mid 1960s was the NHS consultant at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading who treated me for hearing impairment at age 7 or 8. He was from somewhere in the Caribbean. The country was then still a nation. The various war anniversaries were just part of the landscape, along with Trooping of the Colour, the Royal Tournament (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Tournament), the University Boat Race, Ascot, the Queen etc.

Today

Today, the UK is split and fissured racially, ethnically, economically, ideologically. It is scarcely a nation at all.

Today, with the “D-Day” ceremonies, the old Establishment or old Britain had its day in the sun: the unthinking royalists, the BBC and other msm, the remnants of the British armed forces (both of WW2 vintage and from today’s depleted armed services).

Though today’s ceremonies were in similar format to those of the past, there was, despite the wall-to-wall BBC/ITV/Sky news coverage, an end of the season feel. I wondered how many millions were really watching the seemingly endless TV.

I very much doubt that any but a tiny percentage of the ethnic minorities watched the shows today. Fewer will have understood the background even in the cartoon form presented by the TV people (Good v. Evil etc).

I would be prepared to bet that less than 1% of the population under 25 years of age watched more than a minute or two of the news coverage about the ceremonies in England and France. Same applies to most persons of non-European origin.

What we see here are two UKs: there is

  • the official, Establishment UK, together with the msm and the Jewish Zionist element (who latch onto anything “Second World War” as an opportunity to re-demonize National Socialist Germany); and the few now very elderly people who were at least in their teens in 1944; and there is also
  • the real UK, which is vastly more numerous and mostly has no interest in what happened in 1944.

In fact, it occurs to me that that division (between those who regard today’s ceremonies as hugely important, and those who regard them as of no interest or importance) reflects the change in UK society, and also that in UK politics. There is a chasm between what, say, the BBC or Sky think important, and what the bulk of the public think. A difference of orientation, of what is in the emotional life and which will eventually change political life.

Update and further thoughts, 8 June 2019

As I write, Trooping of the Colour, held today, is not trending on Twitter (not that Twitter is the world) anything like as much as the Michael Gove cocaine scandal. Point made, I think. These events (Trooping of the Colour, WW2/WW1 anniversaries etc) have some significance for the elderly, perhaps to some extent for those who (like me, aged 62) prefer not to think of themselves as elderly quite yet; for some (a minority) of white (i.e. real) British/English people, but not at all for the “broad masses” and certainly not, speaking in group terms, for the ethnic minorities.

Yet the System is still trying to interest the people in such things. Look at this tweet by Tom Newton Dunn of the Sun “newspaper” [below]: May Bank Holiday changed date next year.

The fact is, that moving a one-day holiday to a different date is not going to have much if any impact on the public, whatever amount of “news coverage” (propaganda) is pumped out. It just does not now have much emotional impact on most people in the UK, not even those of (real) British origin (and let’s not pretend that the Africans, West Indians, Pakistanis, Chinese etc in the UK are somehow at one with the descendants of the Huguenots or those of long-ago Viking/Norman origin etc…).

As the Second World War recedes in memory and time, these commemorations become ever less relevant. The Jewish Zionist element has latched onto them in a parasitic way, as a method of pursuing its anti-Third Reich, anti-anti-Semitism message, along with pushing the “holocaust” fable and industry. It has less resonance with every year that passes, though.

It is the measure of the national self delusion still abroad that the question as to whether “D-Day” could be mounted today, in 2019 [see tweet below], could ever be asked!

“Struggle” to mount D-Day again?! Ha ha!

Tobias Ellwood MP [Con, Bournemouth East] may have reached the exalted rank of Army captain (Royal Greenjackets), but either is ignorant of history, strategy and geopolitics, or (far more likely) is talking in this manner in order to boost the MOD budget. He cannot seriously imagine that Britain could ever mount another Normandy Landings operation! In fairness to Ellwood, he does write:

But we must not kid ourselves. Pressures on the defence budget since the end of the Cold War have left us with one deployable division of 35,000 personnel who could not fight a sustained campaign without allied support.” [The Sun]

In fact, Britain on its own would have been unable to do “D-Day” even in 1944 without huge American, Canadian (etc) assistance. The very first day, ie “D-Day” itself,  airborne soldiers (mainly British, American Canadian) numbering 24,000 were dropped into battle. Behind them, the rest of the 150,000-strong assault force.

That of course was not the entirety of Allied forces, which numbered in the millions across the world. The total of engaged participants on all sides has been estimated at 100 millions.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allies_of_World_War_II

Britain now (as Ellwood writes) has 1 deployable brigade of 35,000. That, leaving aside rear echelon and headquarters contingents of every kind, is pretty much the usable British Army now, though official figures state 81,500 regulars and 27,000 reserves (former TA):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Army#Modern_army

Compare the figures: in 1945, over 3 million (in the Army alone, not including other arms); in 1980, just before the Falklands campaign, 222,000 (mostly regulars, at that); even in 2010, 155,000. Now the Army (regular and reserves) numbers about 108,000 officially and probably greatly fewer in reality. The Army, Navy, Air Force are losing 2,000 men and women a year.

Then there is the lift capacity, by air and sea. Hugely depleted.

The fact is that the UK could not even repeat the Falklands re-invasion today, the British Task Force fleet then consisting of 127 ships, including 43 Royal Navy vessels (the last figure not being the whole of the Royal Navy by any means). Today, the Navy only claims about 74 ships worldwide, and only 31 of those are large combat vessels and submarines (the rest are small vessels such as minesweepers, patrol launches etc).

In 1939, the Navy had over 1,400 ships. That figure did not include supply ships. “By the end of the [Second World] war the Royal Navy comprised over 4,800 ships, and was the second largest fleet in the world” [Wikipedia].

I get the impression that there is a sizeable and entirely ignorant part of the British public (and it seems to include Gavin Williamson MP, until recently Defence Secretary!)…

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/05/02/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-gavin-williamson-story/

…which actually believes that the UK could “take on” Russia, or China, or both! I see tweets urging British intervention in Syria, for example. Even in the (madly stupid) British bombing of Libya some years ago, the UK was dependent on French and Italian help.

These delusions have political consequences.

Update, 11 June 2019

Point proven? [see tweet below]. Note how this Bengali woman, Ash Sarkar, persists in saying “we” and “us” and “our” [British], just because she was born in the UK (assuming that she was)… talk about “cultural appropriation”!

Update, 21 July 2019

Well, the Iranians have seized British-registered ships in the Gulf of Hormuz. Bad boys. Oh, wait…turns out that not one of the officers and crew are British, and anyway this is tit-for-tat because the British seized an Iranian ship at Gibraltar “on suspicion” that it might be breaking the sanctions regime imposed basically by the USA. In fact, this whole incident was caused at root by that idiot Trump having torn up the agreement with the Iranians re. uranium enrichment. Looks like “perfidious Albion” has been superseded by “unreliable Yankee-Doodle”…

The relevant point here is that the UK Foreign Secretary (Jeremy Hunt) is talking about “consequences” for Iran, but in reality all that the UK can do is rattle sabres a little and freeze funds in the City of London. Britain cannot do much in terms of gunboat diplomacy for a very cogent reason— Britain has few gunboats.

NATO Must Not Attack Russia

President Bush snr. proclaimed the “New World Order” [NWO] openly in 1990. The Soviet Union was not dissolved until the following year, but had in fact died in 1989, 33 years (significantly) after Khrushchev’s “Secret Speech” of 1956, which denounced Stalinism and introduced the “Thaw”.

The ruling circles of the West (variously called the Wise Men of the West, the Judaeo-Masonic conspiracy, the NWO-Zionist consensus etc) were behind the fall of the Russian Empire in February 1917 and the Bolshevik takeover in October 1917. That is not to say that they were able to control events completely. They wanted the Jew, Trotsky (L.D. Bronstein) to take over eventually from the part-Jew, Lenin (V.I. Ulyanov), but reckoned without an even more ruthless evil character, the Georgian, Stalin (J.V. Djugashvili).

Stalin’s seizure of power in the mid-1920s was not ideal from the point of view of the Western conspirators. It stabilized or froze the political situation and the decline in social and family life in Russia and its dependent territories. The Soviet regime became even more conservative during the course of the 1941-45 conflict with the German Reich. Russian Orthodox religion was allowed (under controlled conditions), national patriotism held sway. Marxism was embalmed alongside Lenin’s “waxwork”.The original plan of the Western circles had been that Marxism-Leninism would take over all of Eastern and Central Europe, as far as the Rhine. What stopped that was

  1. in Russia, Stalin’s “Socialism in One Country” policy; and
  2. in Germany, the rise of National Socialism under Adolf Hitler.

The end of the Second World War saw Europe split between East and West. Central Europe was squeezed out. Germany was divided into East and West. Berlin was symbolically divided into East and West. This was deliberate.

In time, the Sovietized “East” (including those Eastern parts of Central Europe), moved to a position which was not far from various forms of social democracy under a socialist-communist mantle. This did not suit the Western “consensus”, which therefore decided to collapse the post-1945 “international settlement”. The Soviet Union, whose citizens were more affluent than they had ever been, fell gradually into social decadence and corruption until the state was ready to have as its anointed leader a man who would sit complacently at its head and watch it implode: Gorbachev.

When George Bush senior proclaimed the New World Order, he was giving voice to the latest global plan of the ruling Western circles: to rule over a globalized world economy. Politics would be merely the instrument by which finance-capitalism would triumph, sweeping away regional, national and local economies, customs, religions and social cohesion. Only money, that is, concentrations of capital, would count.

The plan worked for several years. Socialism in all forms had died in 1989 and Russia was swept along with the finance-capitalist tide, even though the majority of Russians were poorer in most ways than they had been under late-Sovietism. When a rump of pro-Soviet parliamentarians and officers (supported by most Russians, probably) tried to take back power in 1993, the corrupt and drunken Yeltsin ordered massive and bloody assaults on the Duma and other installations. Bush snr. called that an affirmation of “democracy”.

Below the surface, Russians were tiring of their diminished country being a playground for gangsters and exploitative Jewish “oligarchs”, a place in which American companies and other carpetbaggers (again, often Jewish) could strut about, a place where Moscow schoolgirls dreamed of being, not artists, doctors, scientists or mothers, but hard-currency prostitutes. Ten years after the proclamation of the New World Order, the Russian economy having collapsed, a new President of Russia, Putin, started to rebuild Russian pride and self-confidence. At the same time, the New World Order suffered its second and equally massive blow when Islamist fanatics flew planes into the World Trade Center in New York City. That attack (whether “helped along” one way or another or not), was a sign of Islamist strength gathering worldwide.

Another decade passed. The Western circles made a huge mistake in invading Iraq and Afghanistan. Further errors were made in Libya and Syria, instigated by Israel, whose lobby of Jewish Zionists and pro-Israeli non-Jews has a stranglehold in Washington. Israel wanted to destroy or degrade the armies of all potentially harmful states, but its gain was the West’s loss.

The Western circles then decided to arm even Islamist anti-Assad forces in Syria. At the same time, the government of Ukraine, corrupt and weakened by years of Zionist infiltration, was deposed and replaced by a complete “ZOG” [“Zionist Occupation Government”]. Eastern Ukraine, in part, broke away. The NWO (mainly though not exclusively American in terms of its military reach and leadership elements) is attempting to foment war in Crimea, Eastern Ukraine, as well as in Poland, the Baltic States and in Syria.

Hillary Clinton wanted and vowed to “confront Russia in Syria”. She was a corrupt puppet of the NWO and Israel. Donald Trump’s defeat of her was divinely ordained, no matter that the man himself is unfit to be a head of state or government. The danger now is that the NWO will try to hedge him about with NWO satraps. There is still a huge danger that the NWO, via NATO, will push Russia into a war which would devastate Europe, as well as wide areas of both Russia and the USA.

All those who wish for the West to come to peaceful concord with Russia must stand up now against what amounts to a conspiracy to cause a Third World War.
