A side-effect of workers moving out of care work to other work would be that care work would then only attract people with no other choices, forced to do care work by being, for example, pressured by the DWP.

Interesting video, rather idealistic. If the British Empire still existed and still ruled, the Arab-Jew problem in Palestine would be contained, and Israel would not be a centre of a manipulative web across the world.

I thought Elon Musk too intelligent to buy into a massive scam such as Twitter.

Making the best of it

That report reminded me of when I was first in Almaty, Kazakhstan (in 1996 and 1997). I lived on one of the main boulevards, Prospekt Lenina. There were frequent power cuts or, as the Americans say, “outages”.

I bought some candles for my 12th-floor Soviet penthouse apartment, and that was OK, though I nearly got stuck in the lift one day when there was a power cut the moment I stepped out of that lift, having returned from my office. The power did not return until about midday the next day, so that was a lucky miss for me.

In fact, my area of the city was not so badly affected as others, being within the “Presidentsky” district, where the then Presidential Palace and major embassies were located. Usually, the power cuts involved one or two areas at a time, with other areas continuing to receive electrical supply. Where I lived was certainly given preferential treatment, but still lost power fairly often.

I remember well that I was due to dine with three people one evening at a small and little-patronized Georgian restaurant in a quiet lane not too far from my home, a place almost in the countryside.

When the time came to meet those people, I was sitting in the empty restaurant. They arrived together, a young American in the Peace Corps, and two local Russian girls who were employed by an American organization; I had met them previously.

No sooner had they sat down than the electricity was cut off. The owner of the place, a Georgian lady called Bella, hurried to put out quite a few candles.

In the restaurant, with its wooden walls and lack of traffic noise (the lane outside was deserted), this created a kind of 19th century environment. One of the Russian girls started to play the piano which was there. Mainly Chopin.

In the candlelight, it was like being in a scene adapted from Chekhov or some other pre-revolutionary author; perhaps a country estate circa 1860 and in a Russia not yet hit by modern warfare or the shocks of violent revolution. Charmant

That evening has always stayed with me.

Very clever. Funny, but also sad and also true…

Still slightly favourable on defence and “terrorism”? How? Why? The armed forces seem incapable of stopping migration invasion across the Channel, and are too small to stop any conventional invasion. The present ZOG (Zionist Occupation Government) is pledged to continue to waste billions funnelling money and arms to the Jew-Zionist regime in Kiev.

What about “terrorism”? The Muslims are not taking over the British cities via “terrorism” but via their birth-rate. The Jews continue to send their teenage children to Israel, there to be trained in the use of firearms, as well as in techniques of streetfighting, but are not even monitored (much) by the UK Security Service on their return to the UK.

James Cleverly, proud possessor of a McDegree (in Hospitality Management) from a McUniversity, and who has never done much else (except work his way up in the TA) drones on. That half-caste is Foreign Secretary, believe it or not. This country is so screwed, and in so many ways.

I must do a blog article, in my Deadhead MPs series, about Cleverly.

Thinking about who would vote “Conservative” now.

Some would. People whose income is well above the norm, perhaps; those on £150,000+, and who are also voting out of purely personal self-interest . Then —the largest group— those who want to vote specifically against Labour, and see a Con vote as the only effective way to do it.

Are there any other groups of “Conservative” voters now? I think not. The last 12 years have seen no effective policy or action on the immigration problem, whether in general or specifically re. the cross-Channel migration-invasion. As for that trad Con strongpoint, “law and order”, we have seen police numbers cut, courts (in the hundreds) closed down to save money, a huge backlog of trials, and legal aid cuts which have effectively denied millions the right to access the legal system.

Yes, a lot can happen in the two years before a general election has to be held, but it cannot really be said that Liz Truss has any popular mandate, and things look likely to slide even further from here: utility bills, mortgage payments, whatever may hit the UK by reason of the wrongheaded anti-Russia sanctions and military adventurism.

Even the mainly self-interested “grey vote” of pensioners and those nearing State Pension age might pause before placing their crosses next to the Conservative Party candidate, now that it has emerged that the young Liz Truss actually wanted to abolish the State Pension, and who intends to slash other benefits relied on by pensioners.

I assessed Rory Stewart in 2019, when he was a candidate for the Conservative Party leadership. I also updated it, and continue to do so. A large number of people have read that assessment. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/03/will-rory-stewart-mp-be-prime-minister/.

This England

Saw an episode covering 2020. Not as good as the previous episode. Too many scenes with patients suffering (supposedly) from “Covid”, not enough scenes about the political infighting. The drama stuck to the official or accepted (?) narrative(s). Not much questioning of that.

Britain is becoming a very strange country, on the one hand a nuclear power with all kinds of advanced technology, on the other hand a country where millions of its own citizens rely on foodbanks, millions more on State benefits, a country invaded daily by invaders in small boats as well as “legally” (and who are then housed in advance of actual British people). A country the currency of which shows signs of crashing.

Still, when the UK government is headed by a stupidly ignorant woman who only became an MP on her back, and when the Chancellor of the Exchequer is a woolly-headed n****r whose previous jobs included being a gopher at hedge funds, as well as a newspaper columnist…

…and let’s not forget our new Foreign Secretary, a half-caste with a “mcdegree” in “Hospitality Management”…

The EU as it now is is a facade of “liberal democracy” behind which is a core of NWO/ZOG power. Those who accept the EU at face-value are the kind of people who accept “trans” people as women, who accept the “panicdemic” as a real pandemic, and who think that only “discrimination” by Europeans has prevented blacks from creating a civilization, etc. They also accept the “holocaust” farrago as an unquestioned and unquestionable historical truth.

Treat the von der Leyen type as the evil tyrants they are.

It looks as though Italy has a leader.

Wake up, Hitchens. There is an NWO/ZOG-approved msm mob, mirrored by a vastly larger amateur mob of the same sort on Twitter etc. They all know what to say and not say— the amateurs out of “me too-ism”, and those scribblers and talking heads making a living out of it because they know that if they do not support, eg the Jew/Israel lobby, the NWO agenda in Ukraine, or re Russia, or re Assad etc, or the whole “panicdemic” farrago, or the whole “holocaust” farrago, then their “distinguished” careers stop right there.

Some of the Ukrainians in the UK are genuine refugees from war; most are not. They usually come from areas untouched by war, often have financial resources and/or expensive cars, and are looking for an economic or career opportunity.

Unexpected event

I visited the only fairly local supermarket this evening, a Waitrose branch. Outside the entrance to the building, a makeshift medical bed, like a large sleeping bag. Several staff were tending to the occupant, an elderly person. There were medic-looking cases or bags around, presumably from the first-aid room.

I did not like to stare, or interfere, in view of the fact that the incident was under control, but found out from one of the staff inside that someone had tripped over and was unable to get up. An ambulance had been called some 2 hours previously, but had not yet arrived. Two hours!

When I left, half an hour later, with my shopping, the patient was still there, still on the ground, and a member of staff had even moved up a large square parasol/umbrella from the Waitrose Cafe, to shield the person from a shower.

As I pushed my shopping to my vehicle, a large new Bentley passed by. Like something from a satirical sketch about Britain in 2022: if you are lucky, you drive off in a large new Bentley, if not so lucky you lie on a pavement, dependent on “the kindness of strangers”, until the NHS can organize itself to get around to you.

Eventually, I drove out. The patient was still lying, waiting and, needless to add, no-one was standing around clapping…

Britain 2022, where an ambulance takes hours to reach you.

Meanwhile, in some seaside resort, the pathetic remnants of the Labour Party were all going through the motions of praising “our NHS” etc, as they always do. Still, I suppose that the next General Election is now, rather surprisingly, suddenly theirs to lose.

I do not know for sure whether Europe is heading towards a third and even more disastrous “world” war, but it certainly seems that that might be the case.

I hope that that will not be the case, and that, if it is the case and does come to pass, a new and better civilization will eventually emerge from the ruins.

So Vallance has morphed from being a “Covid” scaremaster and “vaccine” cheerleader to being a “climate change”/”net zero” propagandist. That fits, as one would expect. I wonder what he thinks about “Black Lives Matter”, Ukraine etc.

…or as Wellington put it, saying that someone born in a stable must be a horse.

At least they have not yet learned from the Jews the conceit that they are somehow essential to European culture and civilization.

Yes, wake up, English “conservative nationalists”! The Indians are not your allies, any more than are the Pakistanis; incidentally, neither are the Jews and/or Israel. Don’t be fooled.

So speaketh the “Levelling Up Secretary” and, prior to that (incredibly), Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

When you look at the pack of cretins now running this unbelievable bad joke of a government, you realize anew how truly unfit for purpose our political system has become.

Sparks a few memories.

The UN Centre in Vienna (actually on the edge of the city) is an odd place; at least that was my impression when I saw it in the mid-1980s. A concrete fortress or “island” (not literally, though actually on a large island in the Danube), set in quite a green area between the old Vienna and a newer section.

I used to swim, almost every day during my visit, at the not-far-away Alte Donau Strandbad, a closed-off section of the Danube that is either an “oxbow lake” or an artificial version of one. Superb place. Clean river water, a green park, properly-run facilities for changing etc and, best of all, few people. I was there on weekdays, when even in high summer the bulk of the hardworking population were at their jobs.

You cannot just wander into that UN Centre. Even in those days you had to have a pass issued by the security kiosk there. I did not have to get a tourist pass because someone I knew who worked there got me a different kind of visitor pass. The difference was that tourists get a guided tour, whereas I was fairly free to wander around.

A large collection of buildings.

I remember trying to get a sense of what is quite a confusing set-up. I remember seeing a noticeboard with ads for various kinds of local staff. The rates of pay, as far as I could see, were far better than the same people would get in Vienna itself, and were of course not taxable (UN employees do not pay national income tax but only a kind of UN tax, which is far lower).

Another thing that struck me was the Commissary, which no doubt had its origins in the immediately postwar 1940s days when almost everything was unobtainable, but what is odd about that is that the UN Centre in Vienna was established only in 1980, a mere few years before I visited! So a mystery. Maybe there was an earlier, smaller mission.

That Commissary, about the size of a medium-level convenience store, sold duty-free food and drink (including booze) to anyone who was a UN employee or, I think, accredited diplomat. A strange “boondoggle”, in the American phrase. I noticed (I think on a Friday), a couple of (from their stature and looks) East African women, buying Scotch.

Comparison

The Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation is Sergei Lavrov.

[S.V. Lavrov]

Lavrov, half-Russian, half-Armenian, is a graduate of the prestigious MGIMO or Moscow State Institute of International Relations [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moscow_State_Institute_of_International_Relations].

Lavrov worked as a diplomat in Sri Lanka and the USA before being appointed Minister for Foreign Affairs in 2004. He has been in post for 18 years.

Lavrov speaks 5 languages: Russian, English, French, Dvihehi, and Sinhala (the latter two being the languages of the Maldives and Sri Lanka).

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

Now let us examine his present opposite number in the UK, James Cleverly, Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs.

[James Cleverly]

Cleverly, a “half-caste” (in the old term), with a British father and a mother from Sierra Leone, seems to have wanted an Army career.

According to Wikipedia, Cleverly “trained in the Army“, whatever that may mean (no detail of whether he was training to be an officer or as an enlisted soldier, presumably the latter, nor of where he trained, nor in what regiment or corps), but suffered a leg injury in 1989 and had to drop out. He would have been 19 or 20 at that time.

Cleverly then obtained a degree of sorts in “Hospitality Management” from the then Polytechnic of West London [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_West_London].

Cleverly was involved, not terribly successfully (one can surmise) in business and executive activities during the years up to about 2008, but by then was involved in two side-activities which proved more fruitful for him— politics, and the then Territorial Army (now, Reserves).

Cleverly’s leg injury had obviously been resolved by the time he was commissioned in the TA as 2nd lieutenant in 1991. He stuck at that for the following 14 years, reaching the rank of Lt. Col by 2015.

In politics, Cleverly was a London Assembly member for 8 years from 2007. Cleverly then benefited from the scandal around the ineffectual Jew sex pest and pervert Brooks Newmark, who had to stand down as MP for Braintree (Essex). Cleverly replaced Newmark.

Cleverly’s time as MP has not been distinguished, but the upheavals within the Conservative Party led to him being appointed as a Minister of State in 2020 and now, under Liz Truss, as Secretary of State. His appointment dates from 6 September 2022, about two weeks ago.

Cleverly speaks no language other than English.

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

Well, there it is. Sergei Lavrov’s background, languages, and 18 years of experience (and many successes) in post, as against James Cleverly’s background, lack of success (other than in narrow career terms), two years of arguably relevant experience, and time in post as Secretary of State five minutes (putting it flippantly).

It will be recalled that when (also absurdly) Liz Truss was Foreign Secretary, Lavrov easily made a fool of her, inducing her to say that quite well-known cities in Russia should be given “back” to Ukraine (the stupid woman had no idea that they never had been part of Ukraine; one was not far from Moscow).

Liz Truss was an embarrassment as Foreign Secretary; she is just ludicrous as Prime Minister. Now someone even less educated is Foreign Secretary. This country is screwed.

Sergei Lavrov will win no plaudits for his kindly good nature, but on whom would you bet your money?

More about the mooted new Cabinet

Good grief. Thick half-caste James Cleverly as Foreign Secretary?! What an incredible embarrassment and humiliation for this country, even after Liz Truss…

The others mooted? Well, we have as mooted Chancellor of the Exchequer, Kwasi Kwarteng, the “African at Eton”, who said, in a book he co-authored with others (including Liz Truss), that “Once they enter the workplace, the British are among the worst idlers in the world.” See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britannia_Unchained; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwasi_Kwarteng.

Incidentally, that book was written by 5 MPs, of whom only 2 (Liz Truss, Chris Skidmore) are full European, the others being Kwasi Kwarteng (Ghanaian origin), Priti Patel (East African Indian origin), Dominic Raab (half-Jew).

Then we have Ben Wallace, Defence Secretary since 2019 on the strength of having been a captain in the Scots Guards. Seems to think (after a few whiskys) that the now-pitiful British armed forces can take on Russia (in a nuclear war?) and “win”.

Wallace’s actual words were to the effect that the Scots Guards had “kicked the [backside]” of Nikolai I of Russia in the Crimean War (about 170 years ago) and could do it again.

Only a week or two later, Wallace announced plans to reduce the established size of the British Army by almost ten thousand: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Wallace_(politician)#Secretary_of_State_for_Defence.

Let us hope that Wallace stays off the whisky, in case he confuses 1852 with 2022 and then, while a little too merry, tries to kick Putin’s nuclear backside.

Culture— Nadine Dorries“. Need one say more?

Security— Tom Tugendhat“. Really? The part-Jew former desk soldier whose wife is a politically-connected French judge, while Tugendhat (a fervent pro-Israel drone, closely connected to the Jewish lobby in the UK) is himself a French citizen (dual French-British citizenship). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Tugendhat.

Nadhim Zahawi? He emulates the limpet. He blagged his corrupt, expenses-cheating, tax-evading way into Cabinet under “Boris”-idiot, and he will be clinging onto office no matter what.

Most of the rest on that list can be best described as deadheads and idiots.

Such a Cabinet, at such a time? The auguries cannot be favourable.

Basically, “Boris” Johnson appointed to his Cabinet those MPs with more interest in office than their own self-respect. The dregs, pretty much. What we now see is a new Cabinet which can be described as the dregs of the dregs.

Sir Maurice Oldfield [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Oldfield] knew better. He actively encouraged young foreigners to study in the UK, on the basis that, at the very least, they would be influenced by British attitudes and culture. Whether that would now be a good thing, the UK having been trashed by lower cultures etc, is an open question. Still, the point yet stands.

Also, without even getting into matters of direct “espionage”, young persons who study at British schools and colleges are quite likely to harbour friendly feelings towards British people —and so the UK— years later, when they might have developed into high-ranking members of their native societies (though I suppose that, in some cases, the reverse might be so!).

Here are more of that individual’s words of “wisdom”:

The above could be said, with far more justice, of both the Arab and the Jewish/Israeli infiltration, particularly the latter. “…It has had a corrupting influence on politics, finance, law, property…and education, and it needs to be removed. That needs to start now.”

…and the Russian influence is far less influential and, indeed, corrupting, because there are few Russians long-embedded in British society (usually poor emigres from the time of the 1917 Revolution, or from the 1940s), whereas there are maybe as many as 300,000 Jews in the UK, mostly in London.

UK minister calls for overthrow of Putin

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10549195/OWEN-MATTHEWS-Vladimir-Putins-benighted-people-rise-topple-him.html

It seems that the UK minister calling for Putin’s overthrow is James Cleverly, the “mixed race” “Conservative” who has climbed higher than expected for someone whose only paper qualification is a “degree” in “Hospitality Management” from a “McUniversity”.

I notice that the rather polemical Daily Mail report is written by Owen Matthews [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Owen_Matthews].

Incidentally, I was slightly acquainted with that journalist’s mother, Ludmilla Matthews, nearly 40 years ago, around 1983. In fact, she was one of those who taught me on a part-time Russian course (about 3 or 4 classes per week, of which she taught one class), at a language school in Central London. A nice though quite reserved lady, who walked with a limp.

I was unaware of her background in detail until I happened to read, around 2012, Owen Matthews’ interesting book, Stalin’s Children, which was partly about Ludmilla Matthews and her harsh life as a child in the Soviet Union under Stalin and in time of war (early 1940s).

How time flies! Owen Matthews must have been about 12 when I was taught by his mother. Now he is over 50.

I recall Ludmilla Matthews once saying that a Russian phrase I used (I think that the class she taught was Russian Conversation) was “stylish“. Praise is always remembered…

I also remember Ludmilla Matthews because I was in her little class (about 10 people) one afternoon when I was “abducted” by a striking girl with very long hair, who strode into her class before it had finished, looked at me and said “ah, you’re the one. Come with me“!

I may blog about that incident later in detail, but suffice it to say for now that the girl later claimed that I looked exactly like St. Herman of Alaska, of whom I had never heard (apparently, there was such a body: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herman_of_Alaska). Not quite sure how to take that, though I did have a beard at the time!

That girl also said that she had an icon of St. Herman above her bed (in Kensington), and would I like to see it? Well, ever one to jump in where the angels fear to tread, I did go with her. I thought at the time that she must have some position in the language school (near Warren Street/Euston Square) because, inter alia, she (with me hesitating at the door) walked straight into another room where a Russian called Vitya was holding a class consisting of only three young members of the West German Foreign Ministry, with whom I was in fact slightly acquainted. She spoke quite peremptorily to the said Vitya before sweeping out again.

Suffice to say that I never did see the girl’s bedroom, or her icon…This needs a longer telling of the story, though. Anyway, a week or two later, Ludmilla Matthews told me that that girl had mental health problems, was actually dangerous, and had once turned up at the Matthews’ home with a young Australian naval officer whom she had encountered on the London Underground and had “abducted”, like me, but by use of a different story.

Still, that is, in detail, a tale for another blog post, and some other time.

It may be that the Jew clown currently posing as President of the Ukraine has fled. Situation as I write— still unclear.

If Zelensky has fled, he will probably have gone either to Lvov (300+ miles west of Kiev) or overseas, perhaps to Poland. Lvov seems most likely.

At present, reports indicate that both main airports near Kiev are being contested by Russian and Kiev regime troops. If at least one airport is secured by Russian forces, then reinforcements will pour in from deeper in Russian territory. Fresh troops. That alone would probably tip the balance of the battle for Kiev.

As I write, there are reports that there are Russian tanks already in the streets of Kiev. Again, situation not quite clear.

So far, there seems little appetite among the civilian population for a battle with Russian forces. That may be because, after all, the two countries and peoples are closely-linked ethnically, linguistically and historically. It is not the same as Middle Eastern cities resisting the ISIS barbarians, or 1945 Berlin resisting the Red Army. The Russians are not going to deliberately brutalize the civilian population, and the Ukrainian civilians are aware of that.

Interesting to see that the obsessions of the UK msm over the past few years are now chased off the news agenda: “Covid”, facemask nonsense, “vaccines”, “boosters” etc, “Black Lives Matter”, climate change, Greta Nut (the unpleasant Swedish autistic) etc.

It would be good were the UK msm at least to attempt unbiased analysis, rather than behaving in as “controlled” a fashion as, well, Russian TV…

Very irresponsible for the Jew-Zionist Kiev regime to incite the population to resist the Russian Army with Molotov cocktails etc. That could only end one way. I doubt that many will heed the call.

That may be so, but this is only a matter of time. The Ukrainian forces cannot prevail. The country is now under blockade by sea and air and only has open borders to the west. That means that food will start to run short, as will fuel for cars and other motorized transport.

I still think that the Kiev regime will fall within a day or so. It will probably try to set up an alternative “capital city” at Lvov. Were I myself in Putin’s boots, I should probably allow that to happen, then concentrate on, firstly, installing a puppet regime/government in Kiev, and then, secondly, securing Ukraine east of the Dnieper, as well as the Black Sea coast. Such a strategy would leave Russia in rulership over all of the 7 major Ukrainian cities except Lvov, and also in control of almost all significant power plants, as well as all sea and river ports, including Odessa, the only really large port.

True up to a point, but Russia’s forces have been greatly upgraded in the past 10-20 years, whereas Ukraine’s have been trashed by 30 years of shambolic, corrupt, and near-meaningless “independence”. Also, it can only be a matter of time before fuel for the remaining Ukrainian tanks runs out. Tanks use a lot of fuel. Russia has command of the skies, too, and it seems that the Kiev regime has lost 10%, maybe 20% or more of its small air force.

What Russia (and Putin) lacks is ideology. There is no ideology, which underpins strategy. There is only a very vague Russian nationalism and (even more vague) pan-Slavism. That should mean that Russia poses little aggressive threat to Central and Western Europe, but the ruling circles and secret cabals of the West will make sure that their populations fail to understand that.

Hard to see why Putin would bother with the Jewish/Zionist Kiev regime now, with his forces encircling all or most main cities, including Kiev itself. Maybe as a tactic.

While any such talks are in progress, the roads will be increasingly full of Russian tanks, and the skies full of the canopies of Russian parachute forces.

Strategically, the Kiev regime has already lost. Its forces cannot be resupplied, not even by land from Poland (because the Russians have near-supremacy of the air), and with food starting to run out in Kiev, the ability or even wish of the civilian population, and military forces, to resist, will be sapped.

What matters now, or will matter soon, is what is going to happen, both politically and militarily, after the inevitable Russian victory; focussing on the three areas of significance (Kiev, the territory east of the Dnieper, and the Black Sea littoral).

This is a provocation that is entirely unnecessary from the British point of view. Estonians have a right to their own society and government, but are being used as a platform for NATO (i.e. NWO, the New World Order plan).

Anyway, one has to ask why no-one in the msm (except Peter Hitchens) is questioning what British interest there is in supporting the shambolic and corrupt Jewish regime in Kiev, a regime which will probably not last beyond the weekend.

Talk about “poking the Bear”…but soon the Kiev regime will have no armed forces anyway.

Late thoughts about the Ukraine situation

If there is an urban guerrilla “war” (brief war) in Kiev, it will be unpleasant but will not last long at all.

Russian forces are in or by Kiev already. They are probably waiting for reinforcements. If reports are correct, the Russians have still not brought up more than 25-30% of their immediately-available strength. Behind that, they have hundreds of thousands more, should that be necessary.

Time is actually on the Russian side now overall. They can be resupplied, the Kiev regime forces cannot. Fuel, food, ammunition.

To attack Russia directly from the UK, as some foolish people advocate, or even to send troops to assist the Kiev regime, would be a death sentence for a very high proportion of the British people. Russia has 6,200 nuclear warheads and bombs (the UK has about 120).

This is not Britain’s fight. The Kiev regime is a disguised dictatorship anyway. Also, Russia has overall about 20x the conventional military power available to the UK, if not more.

Russia now has no choice but to wade through blood to a victory of sorts. Magna mater…

Tories out!” — fine, but what then? Obviously, Labour is no better, and in fact is in some respects even worse. Same old (NWO/ZOG regime). Social nationalism? Again, fine, but the problem there is that it scarcely exists in the UK. I have blogged previously about the pathetic little parties and (worse) “leaders”. No point in again naming (and shaming?) them. Just wastes of space.

Were there a credible party, with a credible leader, that would be different. Most white British people want social nationalism, though 99% of them do not consciously know that they want it.

Exactly. Action-Reaction-Control…

The international conspiracy is almost hysterically preparing now for 2022, the next big year in the 33-year cycle, to be compared with 1989, 1956, and 1923. They need to seize the agenda for the next immediate cycle of world time (2022-2055).

Immediate aim: see above.

Method: create an “emergency”, which can only be handled by the Government (supported almost 100% by a fake Opposition) taking ever-more dictatorial control over political debate, laws, police, and everyday life.

Not just the “panicdemic”; also “climate change”, “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, Brexit problems, and “terrorism” (especially the all but non-existent “far Right”, i.e. social-national, “terrorism”). A whole storm of nothing (but which looks like something).

It is happening. In plain sight.

It is, for the police, a pretty risky policy to behave badly to members of the public in a “revolutionary” situation. In the Russian Revolution, many of the police ended up minus a head in the end. The same in the Hungarian Uprising, when members of the HVA (political police) ended up decorating the lamp-posts of Budapest.

A reminder of mortality

I happened upon a notice from a well-known London criminal law set: https://www.farringdon-law.co.uk/news/farewell-to-our-true-gentleman-franco-tizzano. I then saw a Twitter announcement dated a few months ago to the same effect:

I was once slightly acquainted with the deceased. I had a few short conversations with him when we were both law degree and Bar Finals students (in the then terminology). I also encountered him a couple of times when I returned from the USA in 1993 and was doing my “second six” months of pupillage, when the fledgling barrister can earn a little money by appearing in court.

I recall that we happened to meet at Thames Mags not long after I had shaken the dust of New Jersey and New York off my shoes. I was doing the first appearance of a Jamaican accused of smuggling cocaine dissolved in rum.

Thames Magistrates Court, Tower Hamlets, London
[the not very beautiful Thames Magistrates’ Court, East London]

Tizzano was some years younger than me but was ahead of me at the Bar, I having spent a few years or part-years in the USA.

I recall that, on first meeting in 1984, Tizzano had explained that he came from Naples but that (if memory serves) he had been at an English boarding school. I understand that his father was a judge in Naples.

I remember that I remarked that “Naples is the warm heart of the world“, according to Shelley, to which Tizzano retorted, “was he mad?“!

Tizzano was a rather serious young man, in the grave Italian way. Someone with a certain dignified presence. Jet-black hair and a black moustache. I see that, in later life, that was complemented by a beard.

I understand that he had a busy criminal practice in later years: I would sometimes see his name in newspaper crime reports, though I think that the last time I saw Tizzano in person was in 1993 or 1994.

A reminder that we are all on Earth for a limited time, and must do what we can while we are here.

Talk about adding insult to injury! James Cleverly, proud possessor of a degree in “Hospitality Management” from the University of West London.

Martin Bashir

What is not generally known about Bashir is that, in 2018, he stalked persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz. That was around the time that Alison Chabloz was convicted of posting her songs online, after a lengthy and very morally-dubious campaign (both overt and covert) by Jewish Zionists of the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA”.

Bashir stalked both Alison and her aged parents, with whom she was staying at the time. Bashir travelled to the small village, in the Peak District of Derbyshire, where they lived, and after failing to be granted an interview with anyone, hung around the village and the house itself. He was seen trying to hide in the garden of the house, standing in flower beds etc. He even peered through firmly-closed windows.

Bashir is not the only very sleazy person to have effectively headed the BBC’s virtually God-free religious output. There have been some very dubious characters in the past too.

Bashir followed the now-usual BBC “religious” agenda: sanctify Jewish things, normalize Muslim things, ignore or twist anything Christian.

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

As for Alison Chabloz, at time and date of writing she is still in prison (having been sentenced on 31 March 2021) for having made some more or less true remarks about Jews on an internet “radio” broadcast. If not released earlier, she will be released next week, having by then served about 8 weeks (half of her 18-week sentence minus 4 days).

Hitchens overrates his influence (and the extent to which his opposition to the “panicdemic” was tainted by association). The anti-lockdown and anti-shutdown side lost the argument with the public not because “lizardist” and other people also opposed the shutdown, and not because the opponents of “lockdown” were mistaken, but because the bulk of the British people have become spineless serfs of the “woke” police state. That applies even more to the retirement-age Middle Englanders than it does to the young and middle-aged.

The “lockdown” shutdown has also been promoted by massive propaganda campaigns, utilizing whipped-up and unnecessary fear as a driver.

Then there is the fact of the huge amount of public money thrown at the “furloughed” employees and also some businesses. Hush money?

The fact is that only 1 in a thousand UK residents has been killed (even on doubtful statistics) by the Covid-19 virus. Yet the campaign continues. In the rural, semi-rural and semi-suburban part of Southern England where I live, there are over 180,000 inhabitants (in a rather large and dispersed population and area). In the past month, there have been 8 deaths of people who have been tested and confirmed as having this virus, and who died within 28 days of testing (even if later killed in road accidents).

Still, even on the face of the absurd statistics, look at the proportion! Only 8 out of 180,000+…

About 1 out of every 22,500 local residents.

The facemask nonsense also continues, with a push now to continue it indefinitely, despite the fact that the medical effect is minimal. There again, the real reason the System wants facemasks has nothing to do with any virus.

Yesterday’s late news

How many times have I in the past tweeted and (my Twitter account having been taken from me by a Jewish conspiracy in 2018) blogged, that “Boris” is no good in a crisis? Many times. Listening now?…

Escape from New York” reprised…

He looks like a judo exponent.

So we have Sturgeon purporting to act like the head of government of an independent state, ordering its borders closed, Police Scotland refusing (quite rightly, imo) to institute a hard border (while increasing patrols), police in London threatening to arrest anyone trying to escape from the zoo, and Boris-idiot trying again to play the poundland Churchill…

I have travelled more than most, and have seen some pretty screwed countries, so I do not say that the UK is the worst, by any means, but it is sliding rather fast now…

We have come to see the SNP as sort-of “normal” now, part of the political landscape, but it was a very minor party until 2015, only 5 years ago. Sturgeon is a strange woman, a fanatic, someone who seems to prefer Pakistani and other migrant-invaders to the English (and even some Scottish).

Yes, even the sainted English courts will not usually stand up for either liberty or free speech. On a smaller stage, look at my 2016 disbarment. A retired Circuit Judge chaired the 5-person panel. The others were two fellows who looked reasonable and behaved well and with appropriate humour if I made a joke; and two purse-lipped disapproving women who were cookie-cutter humourless types incapable (in my opinion) of thinking independently, though in fact they said little. Bookends.

You can see Tribunal panels and benches of lay magistrates like that (but with 3 members) all over the country.

That retired judge was impeccably (well, almost impeccably) fair in his manner and gave me an impeccably fair-seeming “trial” which, however, was always going to lead to my being found “guilty”. The only question was whether I would be disbarred, merely suspended, and/or fined.

For me, as good as penniless, the main thing was to avoid any financial penalty. I had ceased Bar practice in 2008 anyway, and would never return to either the practising Bar or to salaried employment. I could have successfully opposed actual disbarment, but chose not to do so.

In an exchange before the panel retired to consider their verdict, I could tell what the Chairman-judge was thinking, and in my view he knew what I was thinking. He did not overdo the matter, or express any faked disapproval of me, so I give him credit for that.

Still, the point is that the Tribunal knew what the System expected of it and so found against me. That then enabled the malicious pack of Jews behind the attack on me (“UK Lawyers for Israel”, effectively the same “people” as in the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”) to crow, and to dance ritually in their joyous “triumph”. Oh, and the self-described “Left” Twitter-twits all applauded the Zionists…the idiots.

Looks like various factors are beginning to come together: “the virus”, Brexit and possible shortages, economic slide leading possibly to near-collapse and to massive youth and other unemployment, and to continuing migration-invasion. This may be the time when social nationalism can truly rise up in the UK.

An interesting tweet, confirming as it does my long-tweeted and blogged view that Labour is now mainly the party of the blacks and browns. It also confirms (by implication) that I have been right in saying that the “Conservatives” are winning over “Labour” by default, not on their own merit. A real social-national party could rise up and defeat both, if credible, properly led, with clear and properly radical aims.

As for “Labour” being supported by a majority of “graduates”, when almost everyone (well, 50%) under, say, 30, has a “degree”, what is such a “degree” really worth?

More pertinently, that means that persons under 30 (who are far more likely than older voters to have gone to some degree mill “McUniversity” rather than no university) support Labour. More likely to be renters, also likely to be getting poor pay (despite the “McDegree”).

Not every holder of a Mickey Mouse “degree” can emulate the ludicrous James Cleverly and become a Government minister on the strength of a “degree” in Hospitality Management… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Cleverly.

If the UK and particularly England stopped the migration invasion (and consequent births to the invaders) there would be no “water shortage”, though obviously both leaks and the lack of an overall strategy are very important.

The Death of Stalin (film)

Just watched about an hour of The Death of Stalin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Death_of_Stalin] which I realized, as I watched it, was not meant to be historically accurate. I see now from Wikipedia that it was meant to be “black comedy satire”.

Ahistorical, not so much black comedy as slapstick, very poorly realized and acted (contrary to what Wikipedia reports of the critical reaction to the film). Overall, very poor. I would not give it, even as “black comedy”, more than 2 out of 5. The locations were good, some possibly the originals or very close copies (e.g. the “Nearby Dacha” of Stalin, and what I thought was the park of the Economic Achievements Exhibition, but might not have been: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exhibition_of_Achievements_of_National_Economy).

I wondered whether someone such as Mel Brooks had directed the film, but apparently it was one Armando Iannucci.

For me, not worth watching right through to the end. Cheap slapstick.

A couple of late thoughts

I was listening to Radio 4 in the early evening. There was a report about the delay to remedial work ordered to hundreds of tower blocks etc, ordered by reason of fire hazard after the Grenfell fire.

What struck me (apart from the typically-slow government reaction and equally typical maladministration) was amazement at how councils and private contractors were ever allowed to install cladding which, in one case mentioned, is said to be as flammable “as petrol“, leading to a necessity to maintain a 24/7 firewatch on that building (in which people are still actually living!). I thought that this country had building regulations and fire regulations…

Yesterday, we heard that the NHS has spent hundreds of millions of pounds buying medical protective equipment via a Spanish “go-between” (whose commissions added up to at least £20M!) and a jeweller based in Florida. What the hell is going on?
