A step in the right direction, but only when the Zionist and pro-Israel lobby is confronted and defeated can there be free speech again in the UK. The Jew-Zionist lobby is the primary anti-free-speech concentration in this country.
In other words, (((the usual suspects))).
Talking about Sven Longshanks (James Allchurch), it is good to see his resettlement fund growing:
Putin and the ruling circles in Moscow may now have to consider whether they will actually need the city of Kiev intact at the end of this war.
War is horrible, and had this war been planned and executed properly from the start, it would have ended after a few weeks with complete Russian victory, and with relatively slight harm done. Now, it may have to end with the ancient city of Kiev again being levelled (as also happened —in central areas— in 1943).
Come what may, Russia now has to fight on until it achieves victory, even if that victorious end is bitter.
To the bitter end…

On another aspect of the present conflict, I see that the pound sterling now buys about 100 Russian roubles. When I was last in Moscow, in 2007, the (tourist) rate was a fifth of that, 1:20.
Having said that, the mass of the Russian population is as good as unaffected by the long-term slide of the rouble. As I have blogged previously, Russia could even survive quite well as an autarky, and that is not presently necessary, because trade between Russia and much of the world has not only continued but expanded. China, of course, is key.
..as I and many others said long before (in my case, 15+ years before) “Boris”-idiot rose effortlessly (?) to his high position.
Readers of this blog who spend time on Twitter may have noticed comment triggered by the tweet below, tweeted recently by the small but well-funded (and malicious) Jew-Zionist org known as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”:
In fact, that report is not entirely accurate.
I was intending not to blog at all about the above-misdescribed matter.
For one thing, the whole thing is an absurd abuse of the law, and I was intending to simply ignore it, so far as the blog is concerned.
Secondly, though the matter is in the magistrates’ court, and so involves no jury (and is under the conduct of a single District Judge), I am very aware of the need to avoid publishing anything which might be taken to be a contempt of court.
Having said that (and contrary to what can already be found, misleadingly, on Twitter), I can say, for the record:
that I am presently charged with five counts under the Communications Act 2003, s.127, i.e. it is alleged that 5 of the (so far) over 1,500 blog posts published on this website contained material that was “grossly offensive“;
that the allegations relate to five alleged blog posts dating from 2021 and 2022;
that the complainant is, nominally, expressed as “The State“, i.e. not the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, nor any individual;
that I have not been, at any time, actually arrested in relation to the present matter (a couple of Jews on Twitter have tweeted, falsely, that I was arrested); nor was I ever under arrest in relation to the equally-malicious and false claims made against me by the “CAA” (and/or its poundland inquisitors) in previous years, notably in 2017 and 2021;
that in fact, and in relation to the present matter, I was simply summonsed by post, a couple of months ago, to appear at the magistrates’ court at Southampton on 23 May 2023;
that I did appear on 23 May 2023, for half an hour;
that I have pleaded Not Guilty to all charges;
that, in relation to the present matter, I have never been interviewed by the police; in fact the police did not speak to me at all about the allegations wherewith I am now charged;
that any trial of the matter (if there is a trial at all in the end) will not take place until much later in the year, possibly November or December 2023, or even later, on some date in 2024; the learned District Judge has not yet made any order as to date of trial;
that the present matter, depending on whether a trial actually takes place at all, and on whether at any such trial I am found guilty on any or all charges, and on whether (if found guilty on any of the charges), and whether I then choose to appeal any conviction and/or sentence, may only determine in 2024, or even 2025;
that there will be one or more preliminary (procedural) hearings;
that, in the meantime, I remain (since 23 May 2023) on unconditional bail; and
that this blog will continue to be published both before and after any such trial.
I regret that, for reasons to do with avoidance of any contempt of court, I cannot at present go into detail about a number of related facts which I daresay the readers of this blog would find interesting.
Eventually, meaning after the final determination of this legal case, I shall blog about it all.
In the meantime, I doubt whether I shall blog further about the matter at all, not until after any trial.
Finally, I have to say that that “CAA” website report itself does seem to come close to the line on contempt: see https://www.gov.uk/contempt-of-court, and some tweets by Jews supportive of the “CAA” have certainly crossed that line.
Incidentally, readers may be aware that, with the advent of an “Online Safety Act” (as yet only the Online Safety Bill, but expected to become law by late 2023 or early 2024), the very concept of “grossly offensive” online posting will have been superseded by a very different legal framework based around “harm done”.
Support “the men behind the wire”
GB News, though, is 99% “controlled opposition”. Useless.
Anyone of or over State Pension age who votes Labour-label now is a turkey voting for Christmas, not because the fake “Conservatives” are somehow kinder, but because the Con Party desperately needs the pensioner vote, and will therefore continue to pay for it!
Without the votes of the over-65s, the Conservative Party would only have about 50 MPs, maybe even fewer. Call it a “devil’s contract”, if you like: the Triple Lock will continue only so long as there is a Conservative Party government but, conversely, the Conservative Party in government will only continue so long as the over-65s stay on board, and that means only so long as the Triple Lock stays in place.
If the “Conservative” Party loses the pensioner vote, that vote may not go to Labour, but mere mass abstention (or a LibDem protest vote) would be enough to sink the Con Party electorally, and possibly permanently.

I never had much time for Trump, and for various reasons, not least the fact that, as President, he seemed to be a squawking parrot in a gilded cage, guarded by a troop of Jew-Zionists, but at least he, if re-elected, would not escalate the Ukraine war and would probably take away Zelensky’s ricebowl (arms, ammunition, other aid, cash bungs). That would effectively end the war.
For the infantry, warfare is changing fast, and becoming even more dangerous.
Look at that. The UK in the worst position, except for Poland.
“Britain’s Police Federation today blasted a Met officer who allowed a suspected sweet thief to drag a female cop by her hair and throw her into a wall in an attack that sparked ridicule on social media.
The video saw a female officer swung around by her ponytail by an enraged 26-year-old woman in Willesden, north-east London – while her male colleague repeatedly pleaded ‘madam’ in a futile attempt to calm her.
Chiefs say it is evidence of officers being too afraid of repercussions to use the force needed to apprehend violent criminals.“
The SS might have machinegunned not only the “suspect” but those standing around and cheering-on the untermensch…
“Vladimir Putin is facing a growing threat of a coup from the fearsome Wagner mercenary army and anti-Kremlin rebellions on the border regions of Russia, the despot’s former supporters have said.
Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin is acting with unidentified figures within Putin’s circle in a bid to oust the dictator, war analyst Igor Strelkov, ex-defence minister of Donetsk People’s Republic, claimed.“
I do not know. It is true, though, that the central power of the Russian state has rarely been so weak.

Interesting. I can recall having a few anxious landings but only as a passenger. In fact, I was once on the flight deck of a commercial aircraft as it landed at Heathrow (in good weather), but very long ago; as we all know, security concerns and regulations would make that impossible today. Really very interesting for me.
In fact, a large amount of damaging material about Amanda Solloway has been removed from Wikipedia over the years, including that concerning her “dodgy” (possibly now “ex”) husband or “partner” and their business activities (his very existence is now expunged from that Wikipedia entry).

A Schauspiel to bamboozle the masses. Figures on an electronic scoreboard such as the one by Times Square in New York: see https://www.usdebtclock.org/.
Meaningless, in the sense that, with a stroke of a pen, the “debt ceiling” is raised, and taken care of via a small increase in inflation, i.e. decrease in the value of the U.S. dollar.
What range can they achieve? 1,500 miles?
The former territories of Ukraine must be split— Russian or pro-Russian territories east of the Dnieper, in Crimea, and along the Black Sea littoral to Odessa and then west to Trans-Dniestria. The other territories west of the Dnieper, including —and run from— the city of Lvov, can become a rump Ukrainian state.
Among other comments made, I said in that blog post:
“The System relies on complete or near-complete “control”, which was one reason there was such a massive campaign against Corbyn, spearheaded by the Jew-Zionist element.
Liz Truss, by reason of her sheer lack of ability, threatens System “stability”. She will, therefore, be removed, to put in place a (superficially) better Prime Minister-figure.
…When Liz Truss became Prime Minister, I predicted the following, in such terms: that I would be “surprised” if her term lasted as long as the end of 2022, and “astonished” if she lasted as long as Spring 2023. One gold tick for this blog…
No wonder that journalists, MPs, ministers of foreign governments etc read this blog.“
Well…so was I right, or not?
In fact, the resignation of Liz Truss happened later the very same day as the first two paragraphs of my above assessment. Things moved very fast; there was a degree of “groundrush”.

Few under-30s or even under-40s will be voting for the Conservative Party. At the same time, many others in the <40 age group may not vote at all, given the pseudo-“centrist” but in fact extreme neo-liberal finance-capitalist direction now being taken by the Labour Party Shadow Cabinet.
Both System parties (and the LibDem false choice) are effectively the same in terms of overall real policy (not the soundbites issued for cheap point-scoring on TV etc).
The whole UK political system, including the electoral system, is a sham.
An old tweet, but well worth reposting.

That idiot, Ben Wallace, is funnelling arms to Ukraine, at vast cost to the British taxpayer, at a time when the poorer type of British family cannot even heat its cramped little house, nor feed its children properly, and when nothing is working properly here.
That really is like something from films such as Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, or The Stepford Wives.
Exactly right, and that has been the case almost from the start of the conflict.
A poor week for me, in that I was beaten by political journalist John Rentoul, who only scores higher than me in about one in twenty such quizzes; he scored 7/10, whereas I scored only 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 7, 8, 9, and 10 (and I admit that I guessed no.5, though it was sort-of an educated guess).

Re. that second poll, for me it means that 10% of the UK population are direct enemies of our country and people, that 27% are non-Brits and/or enemies and/or completely stupid, that 13% are stupid or totally unaware or blind to what is happening all around them, but that about 49% or 50%, half of the entire population, are aware and perhaps angry. What matters, though, is just how angry.
…or to put it another way, a near-plurality of voters think that both Sunak and Starmer are both incompetent and dishonest. I wonder why they might think that?
…and the present Waitrose situation is by reason of “a massive IT failure” at their head office in Bracknell (i.e. nothing to do with Brexit), or so I overheard this morning when getting a few “necessary” items (lottery tickets, kefir, pineapple juice, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean antipasti, Charentes croissants etc). Waitrose gave me a £5 voucher for next time.
I have noticed, in the past couple of years especially, a general lessening of choice, though, but not only at Waitrose. To my mind, UK supermarkets actually had a better selection of goods in 1988…
The System was pushing hard for David Miliband in 2010. A complete System drone, who failed to take over the Labour Party, and then went to the USA thereafter to make a very large salary (now over USD $1M a year) to head “International Rescue”, an NGO with assets of hundreds of millions of dollars: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Rescue_Committee#Finances.
A million pounds or more per year, maybe even two million, if his speaking fees and other “earners” are included.
He belongs to the Trilateral Commission as well:
“Membership in the Trilateral Commission is highly selective and by invitation only; as of 2021, there were roughly 400 members, including leading figures in politics, business, media, and academia. Each country within the three regions is assigned a quota of members reflecting its relative political and economic strength. The organization represents influential commercial and political interests that share a commitment to private enterprise and trade, multilateralism, and global governance; this has subjected it to criticism for elitism.”
Looking at Twitter today in relation to mass immigration and the migration-invasion, it struck me just how many outright traitors and enemies there are in this country. Twitter is of course perverse, and is far worse than the country as a whole. Still, down the road, harsh measures will be inevitable.
“[Rachel] Reeves said: “What I want to see is people who are already in Britain being trained up for the jobs that are available in the economy… there are many people who are not in work who with the right support, could get into work.
She threw her weight behind plans to devolve back to work support to town halls, with localised drives to get people off benefits and back into work as part of a focus on “incentivising people“.
There is no real difference between the drivel spewed out by Labour Friends of Israel MP Rachel Reeves and that emitted by Conservative Friends of Israel MP Iain “Dunce” Duncan Smith over the past 13+ years.
“Localized drives” to harass the unemployed and/or disabled, and to take away the tiny incomes (from the State) that they need? Sounds as if any people without high income or capital voting Labour-label will be turkeys voting for Christmas…

Look at Ukraine under Zelensky’s regime— no economy left, except for harvesting grain and potato, pensions and State employees only getting paid because the West, mainly USA, is squeezing its own taxpayers for this garbage. “Ukraine” only has arms and ammunition because NATO states and others are funnelling them to Kiev free of charge. The Zelensky regime has shot or arrested opponents and dissidents, closed down trade unions and critical newspapers. As for ordinary justice, young girls suspected of shoplifting get sellotaped to trees on city streets and verbally (and maybe physically) abused.
Ukraine, as it now is, is a “failed state” in all ways.

The UK police, many of them, are far more interested in doing fake “communitarian” things than doing their proper job, “proper job” meaning deterring or investigating those old boring crimes such as murder, other offences against the person, crimes of acquisition etc.
No, all too many of them have embraced all too readily their new role of being the militia of a toytown “woke” police state, and a poundland KGB, snooping on tweets and other online material (whether they understand that material or not). Still, what goes around comes around, in the end…
The above clip is a typical example. The police in question are chatting about (?) football or (?) Eurovision, and are ignoring the unlawful blocking of the road… until their chat is interrupted. Then they take action, but against a victim of the malicious little pseudo-eco mob, not the mob itself!
Sometimes you can just see what may well happen not far down the road, and if the police fail —continue to fail— to stand with the British people, they themselves will fall victim.
Virtually subhuman. Drop him and the whole troop down a black hole.

Many very silly people think that the Suffragettes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suffragette] were justified in their “direct action” programme, a kind of low-level “terrorism”, because without it, women would never have been granted the vote.

Still, she and her sister, and the husbands of both, have a “nice little earner” going on: both sisters are “Labour” MPs, and the sister is married to yet another Labour MP, while Rachel Reeves’ husband is also well-embedded in the present System: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Joicey.
Add up the salaries of that quartet, their personal expenses, their “perks”, and their various other income streams, and you are probably looking at £1M-£2M p.a.

Monkeys but not organ-grinders?
The Kiev regime is a global beggar. how can it “expand” its diplomatic influence when it has nothing at all to offer?
All over the world, we see huge enterprises (or their advertising agencies) hitting one “woke” button after another. In this case, two— “trans” nonsense and the “blacks with everything” campaign of fake “diversity”.
One sees calls to boycott the companies involved, or to “hit them in the wallet“. However, those calls miss the point, because the individuals and cabals behind the brainwashing do not care whether the companies concerned lose money or customers over these outrages.
Think of the finance-capitalist companies involved as merely shells, to be used as convenient for the long-term purposes of the real powers behind the System. “Black Lives Matter”, “refugees welcome” “Covid”, “climate change”, “Ukraine” etc are just some of the “causes” used to further wider objectives connected with the world-history 33-year cycle (in this case, 2022-2055).
“The world is not without kind people” (Russian saying).
The “presidents” of the Central Asian joke-states —I myself lived in Kazakhstan 1996-1997— may feel themselves big fish in their small ponds (small in most ways except geographically), but a large shark is about to invite them to lunch, and they will be the lunch.
I happened to be in the local Waitrose not long after it opened. Heard a brief conversation between a cashier (about 60 y o) and a customer (about the same, or older— the area is demographically weighted heavily in favour of middleaged and elderly people).
The first topic (that I heard), after agreeing that “nothing works any more“, was the recent local elections. Both agreed that they had received no literature from “any of the three parties” (the area is almost exclusively Conservative in terms of local and central government; Labour usually comes third or, not infrequently, fourth). Both also complained that no-one had knocked on their doors (for me, that is a very good thing—F.O.!), and that, in any case, “all three parties” were saying the same thing, and none could be trusted to carry out whatever they said anyway.
You would think that all of that boded well for any new social-national party, but the “three main parties” scam is deeply deeply entrenched, ingrained like brainwashing in the minds of the people. Despite the crying need for a new movement, the mental leap required of the mass of the people to vote for one, let alone join one, is enormous. There is the additional fact that no credible social-national party or movement exists in the UK.
Political success and failure
Real political leaders have usually “failed” at more than they have “succeeded”, and of course the biggest cliche about that is that “all political careers end in failure“.
Hitler failed at secondary school, failed to get into art school, failed to get into architecture school, failed to become an independent artist, was not promoted in the WW1 German Army beyond corporal, joined a tiny group of “extremists” in 1919, failed to become much more than a political joke for the 10 years 1919-1929, but then burst onto the national and international stage as destined leader of Germany, achieving huge successes for 6 years of that peaceful rebirth of a nation. After a few more years of success in war, the tragic failures of 1943-45, and a tragic death.
Churchill too. Born with a “silver spoon”, yet a failure at school (Harrow, where his application was nearly rejected). Churchill only gained admittance to Sandhurst at the third attempt, then was allocated a place in one of the least cerebral parts of the Army, the cavalry.
Churchill’s 4-5 years as an officer (mostly spent as journalist rather than soldier, though he saw action in the Sudan and South Africa and, much later, in WW1 Belgium) were crowned with a single promotion, to lieutenant in his younger years, though much later to —temporary— Lt. Col. in 1916, reduced to major when he withdrew from active service after only 4 months.
Churchill’s political life was likewise chequered. He defected, re-defected, lost and won seats. Famously, the lost election of 1945, then a muted victory in 1951.
As strategist, Churchill was a disaster in both world wars: Gallipoli, Singapore, Norway, Greece, North Africa (at first), the Italian campaign etc. His “success” in WW2 was of course by reason of the participation of the USA and Soviet Union. That had its price(s): the slow dismantling of the British Empire, the gradual subservience of the UK to the USA both in WW2 and after 1945, the condemnation of much of Central and Eastern Europe to live under Soviet or Soviet-influenced socialism for 40-45 years.
Abraham Lincoln too. A litany of failed attempts to be elected to a number of offices, but crowned ultimately with election to the highest office, President of the United States. His assassination while still in office followed on the heels of his victory in the American Civil War.
Those three examples show the difficulty of assessing political success and failure. In the end, all three have gone “beyond success and failure” by becoming world-historic figures who will be remembered as such for as long as, say, Julius Caesar or others will be remembered.
As for Indian money-juggler Sunak, he is not and never will be in the same league as Hitler, Churchill, or Lincoln. Eminently forgettable. In fact, he will leave scarcely more of a ripple on the surface than Liz Truss or Theresa May.
Beth Rigby is easily impressed. So what if Sunak was Head Boy at his bloody school (Winchester)? As for his having made a gigantic amount of money by having worked for the Goldman Sachs vultures, and then having married into a mega-wealthy Indian family, well, such things happen. “Success”?
Meanwhile, Britain is visibly falling to pieces.

New York City was a zoo (in part, or parts) when I was there (1989-1993, on and off); God knows what it is like now. As a matter of fact, the first time I ever heard it called a “zoo” was in 1989, by an American. Not, incidentally, a rednecked crazie with a rifle-rack in his pick-up truck, but a well-travelled and late-middleaged nuclear scientist.
Not sure why anyone (even anyone wealthy) would really want to live in New York City.
“The map shows the countries with the largest projected growth (green) and decline (red) in population by 2100.
According to UN forecasts, by 2100 the population of African countries will grow the most: Niger will add 761% compared to 2020, Zambia – 455%, Tanzania – 380%.
In total, in 25 countries the population will more than triple, and almost all of them (except Iraq – 16th place, + 291% of the current population) – in Africa.
Eastern Europe will be the leader in population decline: the population of Moldova and Bulgaria will decrease by more than half, Bosnia and Herzegovina – by almost half (by 48.9%).
Outside Eastern Europe, significant population declines are expected in China, Japan and South Korea.”

Despite all the intended and executed actions (by a number of European powers, not just Germany, as the simpleminded like to believe) just before the start of both the First and Second world wars, in the end those wars started almost “by accident” at the same time. The states of Europe blundered into them. Will the Third World War be the same?
This looks hopeful, on the face of it. Kennedy is all for taking away the ricebowl of the Kiev regime. At the same time, Biden is very clearly mentally unfit to continue in his office.
Economic sanctions either do not work at all or have unexpected consequences. When I visited Rhodesia in 1977, aged 20, I half-expected to see a country weighed down by sanctions imposed by the UN. What I found was a country where those who owned cars mostly drove quite new ones. The UK complied with the sanctions regime, but France, Germany, Japan etc did not, judging by the cars seen on the road. Outside the capital, Salisbury (now Harare), though, there were often empty roads— one sanction that did have an effect was that on fuel, which was rationed.
I noticed that books were hard to get. The main bookshop (I was told it was the main one) in Salisbury had few if any serious books (and none of my then-favourite Penguin Classics), but plenty of books from South Africa, most seemingly (my perception, anyway) about how to take care of your horse/dog/cat/tropical fish. You could buy Wilbur Smith adventures, another South African import [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilbur_Smith]. Also, no American or British news and current events magazines, no Time, Newsweek, Spectator etc. Rather poor South African magazines such as Scope were available. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scope_(magazine).
The dearth of serious reading material was probably the result of both sanctions and the disinclination of most Rhodesians to spend time on intellectual pursuits even of a superficial nature.
As to other effects of the sanctions regime against Rhodesia, imported booze (from Europe or North America) was almost unobtainable, but that did not affect me personally during my time there, because my main drink, apart from water and orange juice, was beer, and the local product was of high quality (Lion Lager or Simba, pronounced “Shumba“, or South African Castle Pilsner, my favourite).
The Rhodesians tried to get around sanctions by diversifying, producing admittedly inferior substitutes for previously imported products. Everything from chocolate to whisky, and even some firearms. I remember seeing ads in the local press for a highly inaccurate submachinegun called the Rho-gun. I seem to recall that the price was about $290 (Rhodesian dollars, not exchangeable outside the country officially, though I did manage to sell quite a few —at a poor exchange rate— to a businessman in Gaborone, Botswana, after I left Rhodesia).
I noticed that “white goods” such as refrigerators, icemaking machines etc were very expensive, whereas locally-produced food such as oranges, nuts, and biltong (meat, often beef or antelope, dried in the sun) etc was not too expensive.
As for exports (supposedly impossible under the UN sanctions regime), the Rhodesians were able to export minerals and some fruit etc. Years later, I discovered that the Soviet Union, one of the states pressing for harder sanctions against Rhodesia (and South Africa) had in fact been secretly buying Rhodesian exports (at a substantial discount). Chromium and other minerals, and Mazoe oranges (sold in the Soviet Union as “Chinese”, apparently). All shipped out of Mozambique.
Tobacco was another prime export, sold on world markets by a sanctions-busting operation based, I think, in Rotterdam.
The idea that Russia will be “brought to its knees” by economic sanctions is a pipe-dream. In fact, such sanctions help Russia in a “be cruel to be kind” way. They force Russia to diversify, and to improve agriculture and horticulture. The sanctions have also forced Russia to create new trading links, and to strengthen existing ones.
“Human rights abuses”
The next time some bought-and-paid-for “British” or American politician-for-hire, or some Jew neo-con publicist, or fake “centrist”, talks about “human rights abuses” by Russia or others, remember the behaviour of the USA itself. Here are a few examples:

The above two images show the American concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay, on the island of Cuba.
…the fact is that the German camp guards of WW2, and even the brutal Soviet guards in their labour camps, behaved better than the Americans have in recent decades.
Behind the executives, and the paid-for public faces, the New World Order (NWO), and much of that is tied in with World Zionism, and Israel.

In 2016, one of the five tweets that got me disbarred, at the instigation of two connected packs of Jews, was that describing Sarkozy —accurately, except that he is not a full Jew, only part— as “a corrupt little Jew“. Well, scroll on 6-7 years and here we are…
Another of the five supposedly “grossly offensive” tweets posted by me, as a result of which I was unlawfully disbarred, was that describing snivelling cocaine user and drunk, Gove, as corrupt, as a fraudster and as a freeloader, and also as being in the pocket of the Israel/Jewish lobby.
Well, any argument on that now?
Look at the above news report. Speculators and parasites are favoured by Gove’s latest policy U-turn. Not all are Jews (and not all Jews are speculators and/or parasites) but, at the same time…
So, of the five “offensive” tweets, turns out that, in fact, two were undoubtedly —and now provably— simple true statements of fact, as were also (in reality) the other three tweets in question.
Corbyn was not even decently “antisemitic”, despite the constant (((whine))) about him. In general, a complete idiot.
700,000 immigrants last year. That’s “net”, meaning maybe a million entered but 300,000 (mainly real British people going to Australia, NZ, Canada etc) left.
Britain as a dustbin.
As, I think, Lord Green of Deddington said in the Lords recently, that amount of immigration means that, just to stand still, Britain requires 300 new dwellings every single day!
Horrible little blots such as Tom Harwood are now showing tiny bits of the Green Belt as scruffy here and there. The exceptions that prove the rule— the Green Belt must be saved and, yes, improved.
Starmer can now, I hope, kiss goodbye to his desired Commons majority in 2024. Much as I want rid of the “Conservatives”, Starmer-Labour is now showing its hand…and it is looking even worse.
It has nothing much to do with “dream of home ownership“. In any case, who wants to own a concrete or brick box in a hellhole landscape, and in which “neighbourhood” your “neighbours” may well be persons of backward culture not long off the boat (literally)?
Is that an honest poll? I wonder. Of course, the public has had 1-2 years of brainwashing or conditioning.
I wonder whether the results might have been different had the question made the point that if Ukraine joins NATO and has a war with Russia, it will be mandatory for all NATO states to join in. That is to say, it would be mandatory to join in a war against Russia which would almost certainly either be or become nuclear.
I suppose that, even were the question to elucidate the situation to the people asked, a few lunatics would still want to fight Russia, but most might think that the utter destruction of their homes and whole way of life would be a high price to pay for supporting “Ukraine” (the Kiev regime)…
Starmer still no more popular than Sunak, give or take a couple of points. Both stupid wasters unpopular with 60%-69% of the voters.
I daresay that, in a month’s time, once people realize that Starmer wants to continue to import millions of unwanted migrant-invaders, and destroy what is left of the still-beautiful English countryside so that millions of hutches can be built to house them, the popularity of Starmer —and so, Labour— will fall further yet.
The whole two-party system (with LibDem/dustbin add-on) is very ingrained. It is, in itself, a potent form of conditioning or brainwashing.
Thinking about that visit to Rhodesia in 1977: many people imagine that a collapsing society looks like Germany in 1945 (or 1923). Not so. I was in Poland (several times) in 1988 and 1989; also, in the DDR/East Germany, and Czechoslovakia.
The whole socialist system fell apart in late 1989. Yet the police still patrolled, the borders were maintained and guarded (until the Berlin Wall fell), utilities still worked, and there were few political demonstrations, let alone riots or the like. Letters continued to be delivered. Shops remained open, even if they had little to sell in some cases. The seismic changes were about to happen, but there were only slight external signs of that.
One got a sense of considerable discontent, talking to people in Poland and Czechoslovakia (on those visits and elsewhere as well), but the surface normality prevailed. The police still functioned, even in Poland (I myself picked up two tickets for, in the American phrase, “jaywalking”, i.e. crossing the road at the wrong place). Fined on the spot…twice. A recidivist.
Turning from those situations to the UK, there often seems to be little public appetite for swift political change. Frustrating for many of us.
We have seen, over 20 years, almost uncontrolled mass immigration (including, now, direct migration-invasion in small boats across the Channel, thousands of the bastards per day), crushing “austerity” for the poorer half of the society, ridiculous policies about the “Covid” “panicdemic” etc, an inability of Government to supply (directly, or via the private and/or third sectors) services vital to the people (such as trains, road repair, NHS or other healthcare, social care for various groups). Also, a failure to guard our borders, and a failure to clamp down on real crime (theft, drug abuse, social nuisance etc)., while kow-towing to Jewish/Zionist pressure re. social media non-crime.
Now we see idiots such as Ann Widdecombe criticizing parents who cannot afford to feed their children cheese sandwiches, while pumping billions out to “Ukraine” (the Jewish regime in Kiev) and to house and feed unwanted nuisances who have arrived via unauthorized Channel crossings.
Talk to people, and you get a sense of weary resignation in them, rather than anger, though that may also be there, under the urbane English exterior.
Still, there is everything yet to play for. The NSDAP vote in Germany was only 2.6% in 1928. Events happened, and the NSDAP triumphed only 4-5 years later.
“Purplebricks, the once high-flying online estate agent that reached a peak valuation of more than £1.3bn, has been sold to Charles Dunstone-backed rival Strike for £1 with all of its more than 750 staff put at risk of redundancy.
Purplebricks launched in 2014 and received early backing from Neil Woodford, the former star stockpicker. It floated on London’s junior market, Aim, in December 2015.”
Another example of the madness of crowds, and the madness of finance-capitalism, though I concede that there are arguments to the contrary.
Remember Lastminute.com? The newspapers boosted that simple and actually not very clever idea, made an entitled/privileged and silly woman (and her Jewish business partner) incredibly wealthy in the speculative scramble, but it ended with the small shareholders all wiped out; cheated, in reality.
The only thing that can be said is that at least most of those small shareholders lost only a few hundred pounds, if that, their share allocations having been very small.
Lastminute is still, I think, trading, technically. I tried to use the booking service once, about 20 years ago. Useless.
As to Purplebricks, looks as if many shareholders are now left with the value of their shareholding being worth little more than 1% of the peak valuation.
After retweeting the alleged slander to her 500k followers Monroe started started counting the views. Maybe this time she would get enough for her dream home? Readers, by this time wild horses couldn’t have dragged me away from Twitter pic.twitter.com/hk6o5qC1PE
In the months that followed Monroe would, on occasion, talk about the case. She even had a team of paralegals. Understandably, it was all hush hush and she had to be discreet. pic.twitter.com/wz19G4gDQZ
For once, I have to agree with “antifa” cheerleader Mike Stuchbery. Miracles will never cease…
It is only human to think that someone with great wealth, especially when they did not inherit it, must have a great mind. Sadly, however, that is usually not the case (though Elon Musk is certainly a very interesting character).
The above tweet by Musk does indicate poor, surprisingly poor, logical skills. Poor knowledge of modern history, too.
The Jewish lobby in the UK has been trying to get rid of Neil Oliver for quite some time. They have been looking for an opportunity, an excuse.
The Jew Shapps, who was caught trying to flog get-rich-quick schemes under the false name “Michael Green”. He even used the fake ID in the House of Commons.
“…the dangers of fascism“, from a loony whose Extinction Rebellion cretins block roads, physically prevent citizens from getting to work, prevent ambulances getting patients to hospital, spray paint onto Old Master paintings and shop windows etc, all to make political points based on complete madness.
Well, unless they have done an El Cid on him (dead but propped up on his horse to rally the troops), looks as though Lukashenko’s death or near-death has been greatly exaggerated…
The armed forces of the UK now do almost nothing for the people of the UK, and there is no credible enemy state within a thousand miles or more in any direction.
Meanwhile, the real enemies are much closer and cannot easily be stopped by ships, aircraft, armour or infantry: the migrant invaders (only 5%-10% of whom arrive in small boats across the Channel), the Zionist lobby in the UK, the supporters of militant Islamism (many of whom live in the UK’s cities), and the lawless, feral, urban hordes (some of which are even ethnically British/English).
That is the way “they” are— chuck them out of the front door and (((they))) try to come back through a rear window.
As blogged in the past, Russia is well-placed to realize autarky, especially if its economy can be further diversified, and in any case China and numerous smaller countries are still trading with Russia. In fact, Russia’s trade with many countries seems to be increasing.
Nice room. It reminds me of my own one-time drawing room (about the size of the whole of my present tiny flat). I suppose that Musk and Macron are in the Elysee Palace.
Another nail in the coffin of free speech in the UK. The nail may have been hammered in by the police and Crown Prosecution Service, but behind them stood, as so often, (((the usual suspects))).
I never listened to the podcast in question, mainly because I have no patience with long discussions which (arguably) lead nowhere, but whatever he and his guests said, there was no real reason to censor him, let alone to imprison him. Now, unless there is any successful appeal on conviction or sentence, he will be actually incarcerated for well over a year.
The case of “Sven Longshanks” does not stand alone. It is part of a whole campaign being waged —mainly— by the Jewish/Zionist lobby in the UK.
Internet “radio” podcasts seem to be a major, perhaps the major, target. There have been a number of podcasters prosecuted and even imprisoned over the past couple of years.
Strange to think that Britain used to be known as almost the home and centre of freedom of expression in the world, along with the USA and the British white dominions.
I hope that “Sven Longshanks” has friends or comrades who will assist him while he is incarcerated, send him money via the official mechanism, and keep in communication with him. We should always support “the men behind the wire”.
Funny. The old woman is a nuisance on the one hand, but on the other hand someone who is keeping her immediate neighbourhood safe, rather like the volunteers in parts of the socialist world before 1989 (and, indeed, in National Socialist Germany in the 1930s and early 1940s).
As a matter of fact, if that old woman lived near me, I might have avoided having one wheel (yes, I too am puzzled) stolen from my car in the middle of the night not so long ago, a theft which the police not only failed to prevent or “detect” (despite evidential material existing) but also in which they had very little interest at all. In a word, useless.
That video clip reminds me of a personal reminiscence, from a time when the police were possibly more numerous and certainly more effective.
In the early 1980s, my then girlfriend drove (with me as passenger) from London to Reigate, Surrey, where my parents lived. Her vehicle was an ex-Post Office van, a Ford Transit with side windows, which she intended (never happened) to turn into a camper van for herself and her small children. It was part-yellow, part-red-brown, having been half-painted over by the previous owner. It looked rather scruffy, to be honest.
While the van was parked outside my parents’ house, on a driveway visible from the local road, there was a ring at the door. My mother went to the door. A polite, smart-looking young policeman was there, uniformed and wearing a cap. Incidentally, no beard or visible tattoos, unlike some of the scruffy police you see today. His police car was outside in the road.
My girlfriend cowered behind a pillar (thinking that she had probably done something wrong with the van) as the policeman explained to my mother that the reason why he was inquiring was “because that vehicle does not seem to fit the neighbourhood“! By today’s standards, incredible. I doubt that it would happen these days, anywhere in the UK. Surrey Police, then, was a very efficient force. Almost a Swiss level of efficiency (and curiosity).
Not only fear, but people are imperfect— that is where law, or prevention, comes in.
In fact, that is one more misleading headline: see the YouGov poll:
Yes, technically, Sunak came third out of “two”, but he got 27%, while Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer did almost as badly— 30%.
“Don’t Know” means, here, “I despise and have no respect for either“…
What was the choice of the remaining 3%, or were the figures rounded?
Misleading headline. Fewer than half of those 18-24 actively support the idea.
There is cogent anecdotal and other evidence that at least a small number of big cats live in the countryside. I have heard tales myself (not from the msm).
So at least 79% of the public had little interest in the Coronation, to the extent of “celebrating” it (drinking, mainly). Who are the 2% called “Don’t Knows”? Those on “lost weekends”, presumably.
What a horrible and cruel scene.
As to so-called “racism”, I distinguish between purely “offensive”, and actually “defensive“, “racism” (and, indeed, “antisemitism”).
White European culture and civilization must be defended.
Odds-on that tweeter Carole Flint lives in some leafy suburb, far from the most negative effects of the migration invasion.
…and, in the Bakhmut/Artyomovsk area, the “musicians” are still playing….
Very good analogy ad extremum…

In a slightly different sense, that is what has happened in the UK, USA, France and other countries.
I never much liked Gaddafi, but he is surely correct here, and Libya is now a lawless corrupt mess. At least Gaddafi ran it reasonably efficiently, and also kept sub-Saharan Africans out of Europe.
Ursula von der Leyen is an evil part of the NWO conspiracy.
However, it is no good opposing the Zionists in the Middle East while not opposing their machinations in the EU and UK.
“Ukraine” (Kiev regime), a failed state; in fact, a fake state.
Written by Bliss as “a gift to the American people“. Today is the 4th of July.
On this day a year ago
Was interested to hear a TV reporter in Ukraine, either Sky News or BBC, give the Ukrainian view of their Lukansk defeat, then add something like “if that can be believed“.
At first, months ago, anything the Ukrainians (Zelensky regime) put out as “fact” was naively believed, even patent nonsense such as the non-existent “Ghost of Kiev” fighter ace. Those lies were retailed to the public, and affected the Western public perception of what was happening, and the reaction of Western political leaders.
Now, reality begins to set in. The forces of the Kiev regime in Eastern Ukraine are running out of soldiers, ammunition (especially for artillery), artillery itself, and fuel. The Russian forces are now gradually carrying out a large-scale strategic or positional operation which will end with the occupation of all of Ukraine east of the river Dnieper.
Conservative sleaze MPs
Funny to see demands that Boris-idiot should explain why he wanted appointed the apparently-appropriately-named Chris Pincher to the position of Chief Whip from having been Deputy Chief Whip (inter alia, the guardian of Con MPs’ morals and ethics). It is obvious, surely? “Boris” wanted someone morally-compromized, who would therefore be lax in passing judgment on Johnson’s own perennial activities.

“Department store” is a better description (Warenhaus is the German for department store as well as, I think, warehouse).
Occasionally, decades ago, I would have a coffee on the open roof terrace that has a very good view over Paris. The store is close to the Seine. By the entrance, there was usually an old organ-grinder with a monkey.
Think twice before believing any doctor who prefers to work as something else, eg as a TV presenter. That especially applies to medical doctors who become politicians, eg Dr. Liam Fox; eg that unpleasant and stupid woman who was MP for Totnes for a few years (and whose name escapes me right now); also Dr. Hastings Banda, Dr. David Owen, and Dr. Evan Harris (etc).

“Sven Longshanks” news
“The trial of James Allchurch, accused of setting up a “highly racist” and “highly antisemitic” podcast station called Radio Aryan, has been delayed by almost a year amid disruption caused by the industrial action.
The case, which opened at Swansea Crown Court last week, was going to be put back to work around strike days this week and in the coming weeks but several jurors were unable to attend on the proposed new dates so the jury was discharged by the judge on Friday. The trial is now listed for March 20, 2023.”
Ha ha! “They” (((the you-know-who’s))) will be furious…
What always strikes me is the smug, precious, “entitlement” of the bastards. Pity no-one smashed that couple in white (read Daily Mail report) over their heads with a baton or iron bar. In fact, they look like good candidates for that even when not damaging nationally-important works of art.
Late afternoon music
To my mind, satire of some kind, but reflecting some prevailing views of the Canadian authorities.
