Saturday quiz

A rare week, in which John Rentoul beat my score. This week he scored 7/10, but I scored only 5/10, a far worse effort than usual. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 6, 7, 9, and 10 (I should have known no. 7, but the mind was blank, so there it is…).

Sadly, very true, though “Left wing” (eg “socialist”) is not fully accurate, certainly not the full story. The Jew-Zionist element has a near-stranglehold, as it does over the msm. In fact, not so long ago, the fake UK “charity” known as “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA” was advertising for “volunteers” with their own Wikipedia accounts to “edit” (vandalize) Wikipedia pages.

Wikipedia is one of the best resources on the Internet, perhaps the best, which makes it all the more irritating that Jew-Zionists and others are using it to spread propaganda.

It is absurd, also, that the mainstream UK newspaper, the Daily Mail, cannot be cited as a source for anything, yet rubbish publications such as the Sun, Mirror, even Morning Star, can be! Incidentally, I have no reason to be kind to the Daily Mail, as you will see if you google “Ian Millard barrister Daily Mail”!

Also, we see that the trend for the State to “outsource” things has now led to the “Boris” etc weaselling that the facemask nonsense will largely end (in law) on 19 July 2021, while at the very same time telling the public that they “should” carry on being scared facemask-wearing rabbits, and also telling —or nod-and-winking— to large supermarkets etc, and airlines, that they should effectively demand that their customers continue to be muzzled.

Screw that, and screw all companies demanding facemask use! Rebel any way you can, especially by boycotting those companies. Vote with your feet, and with your wallet or purse!

After 2008, “austerity” (which was the policy not only of the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and George Osborne but also of Gordon Brown and Alastair Darling), was completely wrongheaded. Now, though, we see almost the opposite —but skewed— policy of vast sums spent, not on useful infrastructure, nor on real education and upskilling, but on schemes over the past 19 months to keep the population at home, eating delivered junk food, drinking heavily, and watching TV.

I too live in one of the wealthier parts of England, yet the roads are falling to pieces, and public services have been cut to the bone.

(and in most of the USA, minimum-wage workers cannot afford even a one-bed apartment!).

The same or similar problem exists in the UK. Topping-up pay via Universal Credit is quite wrong; it subsidizes poor-paying-employers vis a vis employers who pay decently. Pay must be sufficient to live on. A measure of State-paid Basic Income will also have to come into existence, because the nexus between pay and work is very loose now, and many do not have paid work at all.

Spy story

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9796639/The-story-John-Stonehouse-told-great-nephew.html

Well-written Daily Mail puff for a new book about the arguably infamous, certainly egregious, John Stonehouse [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stonehouse], who did a “Reggie Perrin” in 1974. For those too young to remember Reggie Perrin, read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fall_and_Rise_of_Reginald_Perrin#Background_and_influence].

Stonehouse was a sensation when exposed as a fraud who had not died, as everyone thought, in 1974, in the sea off Miami Beach (a rather unlkely place to drown anyway). His espionage for socialist Czechoslovakia was not exposed to the public until well after his death.

That was an age when politicians, though hardly honoured, were still regarded as basically straight people. The later tidal wave of mediocre and hopeless idiots had not yet filled the Commons. That was another reason why people were fascinated by Stonehouse’s attempted (and very nearly successful) scam.

Other reasons why l’affaire Stonehouse became a sensation, briefly, were because it coincided with that Reginald Perrin TV comedy series, and also because a few other cases of international (British) fugitives had been news for years, notably that of Ronnie Biggs [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronnie_Biggs].

I recall that, when I had to visit the British High Commission in Gaborone, Botswana, in 1977, at age 20, I noticed a small golden plaque by the entrance stating that it had been officially opened by John Stonehouse in 1966, when he had been a minister in the Colonial Office and its successor, the short-lived Commonwealth Office (from 1968, joined with the Foreign Office in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office).

Strange to see that inscription, nearly three years after Stonehouse’s disgrace (but history is history, something both the “BLM” idiots and Zionist Jews might note).

The Daily Mail piece also contained the assertion that one Ernest Fernyhough, PPS to Prime Minister Harold Wilson, had also been (one of a number of Labour MPs) spying for the Czech StB (external intelligence organization). His treachery is new to me, and I see that Wikipedia does not mention it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Fernyhough.

I imagine that Stonehouse, who was a bit of a Casanova, and a gambler generally, might have been a fairly useful agent for Czech Intelligence, willing to take calculated risks.

As to the book, to be released on 22 July 2021, I might buy the hardback edition via Amazon when it is put on secondhand sale in a few months. RRP is £25.99, but the book can be bought at £18.99. Maybe when there are good, or as-new, used copies for £2 or so. Or, if you like, “when you get down to 90 kopecks, wake me up again”.

Despite that Daily Mail piece having been interestingly written, it contained one schoolboy error by the author (of both the book and the article): speaking in the strict legal sense, Stonehouse did not commit, as the writer claims, “treason”; his alleged espionage crimes would have been charged, had he been charged, under the Official Secrets Act(s) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Official_Secrets_Act#United_Kingdom].

[Addendum, 18 July 2021: I became aware today that Stonehouse’s daughter, Julia, an author and professional ghost-writer, has also just published a book about the John Stonehouse affair (“affair” in both senses): https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9776079/John-Stonehouses-daughter-breaks-silence-46-years-reveal-financial-deceit.html].

Well, for the second week running, John Rentoul managed to tie with me: 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 6, 7, and 10.

Globalist “conservative” UK-based Indian scribbler, Janan Ganesh, is of course quite wrong, inasmuch as there was no good reason to invade the backward pseudo-state of Afghanistan.

The fact is that the UK is becoming a police state. To be sure, a superficially “caring/sharing” communitarian one, which does not (yet) look much like, say, North Korea, Cuba, or even Belarus, but a police state all the same.

If so, screw the pubs, clubs, and restaurants. I’m out…

Signs of decadence

Rolls-Royce has marketed a small number of cars at £20 million each. Yes, twenty million pounds: https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/new-%C2%A320m-rolls-royce-boat-tail-latest-coachbuilt-model.

[the £20M Rolls-Royce Boat Tail]

It is all very well for “libertarians” to say that society or the State should not interfere with what people do with “their own” money, but there is a limit beyond which conspicuous consumption becomes a mockery of the less-affluent, and indeed becomes a mockery of society itself.

Is £20M “too much” to spend on a car? I think so, and not only because I fall short by…well, about £20M. I would frown on anyone spending even £2M on a car. £200,000? Well, I suppose that I might just be able to justify that, should I ever hit the Euromillions jackpot, but when one thinks how many people are suffering, even (?) in the UK because they need not even £200,000, but £20,000, or even £2,000 (maybe even as little as £200), to spend huge amounts —however defined— on a personal vehicle, seems very decadent to me.

Some people, such as heads of government, may need a special vehicle for their use, but that is a different matter. Hitler had specially-built Mercedes cars, while Lenin used at one time a Rolls-Royce built before the Revolution for a Russian aristocrat. That car was equipped with half-track and skis as well as wheels, to deal with the icy, snowy, or muddy Russian seasons.

Ha ha. Hypocrite Kamm should look in the mirror. I have blogged about his behaviour on previous occasions. As for Pollard, I have also made known, recently, my views about his attempts to squash freedom of expression. The same goes for other similar Zionist nuisances.

There is a “British Government” in name, but it is really just a ZOG (Zionist Occupation Government) of the NWO (New World Order) matrix. Most of the Cabinet and other ministers of importance are Jews, part-Jews, and pro-Israel Indians and Pakistanis etc.

Hardly surprising that a Zionist Jew with untold wealth funds Jew-Zionist activity, whether in Israel/Palestine, the USA, or Europe, but tweeting about evil accomplishes very little. As always, what matters are concrete results.

If Marx lived today, he would have to say that mass spectator sport (and “celebrity” culture, of which the former is really part), and not religion, are “the opiates of the people”. Pathetic.

As I blogged in both 2021 and 2020, the self-describing “Left”, the pseudo-socialists, the people who claim to be for civil rights (usually) are precisely those pathologically attached to the facemask nonsense, “lockdowns”, police-state-ism and so on. The gulf between them and the saner people who have realized that a real virus has been weaponized and inflated hugely for socio-political reasons is widening. It may be something which, even more than the Brexit divide, will have very important social and political consequences for many years.

There is no real opposition within Parliament, bar a few individuals, just a System pretending to be a binary democracy:

A circus or spectacle for the masses. Schauspiel.

There is always the small group in advance of the rest. The enlightened few during the Renaissance, the tiny group of Bolsheviks prior to 1917, the half-dozen people sitting in a beer cellar after hours in 1919, and who who invited Adolf Hitler to become “member no.7” of the DAP (that later became the NSDAP), the 2.6% of the German population that voted for Hitler in 1928, the miniscule number who were even marginally “dissident” in the Soviet Union and its satellites in the 1960s, 1970s, even 1980s.

The small vanguard leads the way. The mass later follows, if the vanguard is destined to rule.

Peter Hitchens has this exactly right, and ex-UKIP blowhard Roger Helmer has it not only wrong but shaking-my-head wrong. People like him were the reason UKIP failed.

As for the masses and their football faux-patriotism, they feel it, of course, just as their ancestors went enthusiastically to cheer both pre-20thC public hangings and the 1914 declaration of pointless war (as well as the similar though less fervently applauded event of 1939-45).

How well I recall scrambling on those grass-and-flower-full North Cornish stone walls when I was about 6 or 7 years old, in the early 1960s. Later, in 2002-2005, I lived in that part of the world.

Diary Blog, 3 July 2021

The noise around the recent Batley and Spen by-election has continued, with the msm doing its best to pretend that there is still a functioning two/three-party “democracy” now that “Labour is back”.

Fakery. Labour is not back. Kim Leadbeater, the monkey-on-a-stick “Labour” candidate, won the by-election mainly for local reasons and because most white English voters (white people being 75% to 80% of the electorate), did not vote.

Turnout was below 50%. Most of the Pakistani and other ethnic minority voters at Batley voted (based on previous evidence). That means that well under half the white English voters did not vote. Reason? Probably because there was no party with any credibility that spoke to them.

It seems that the Muslim vote was split between Galloway and its traditional home, Labour, with most going to Galloway. The white English vote was split mainly between Conservative and Labour.

The decision might easily have gone the other way. It did not, mainly, because the Conservatives did not want to mount a real attack, direct attack, on Kim Leadbeater. They should have done. She deserved it. She was a entirely fake or puppet candidate, who was only there because Labour broke its own rules to adopt her. Her links to various (and to my mind) subversive communitarian groups should have been exposed. Her evasion re. the persecuted Batley schoolteacher should have been attacked (but the Conservatives also failed to speak up for him).

In the end, the Conservative candidate was also a puppet, like so many. Had he had more courage, and more independence, he might have won. Now he is just a footnote.

Labour will inevitably bump along the bottom. It has now been abandoned by most white English voters. Now that Labour is very clearly controlled again by the Jewish Zionist element, not many Muslims will continue to vote Labour. As I have said before, that leaves Labour with a very niche electorate.

There is also the point that, with no election needing to be held before late 2024, Labour is little more than an irrelevant squeaking in a Commons with an 80-seat Conservative majority.

Beyond the above, there is the feeling that Labour has no idea at all about how to improve Britain. It scarcely if at all opposes the present government. Indeed, all it has is pathetic, not credible, “diversity” claptrap of the sort that Kim Leadbeater spouts.

That person, Laura Pidcock, was once “tipped as a future leader of the Labour Party” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Pidcock]! She seems to be not-married to a non-European, possibly Ethiopian, and to have produced a child with him. She is on the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party. Seems pretty dimwitted.

Laura Pidcock was a local councillor, but lost her seat. She was also an MP for two years [2017-2019] but lost her seat. Labour, take note. Many more will follow in her anti-British, “anti-racist”, footsteps.

One could imagine a (presently non-existent) credible social-national party standing at somewhere like Batley and Spen, and getting, say, a third or so of mainly the white English vote, maybe 30% of the whole turnout. Under those circumstances, in a 4-horse race, such a party might have triumphed over Lab, Con, and Galloway…

My takeaway from Batley and Spen is that, looking at the past decade, white people are generally now not voting Labour, but are unsure as to where to go; also, that the Muslims are drifting from Labour, but are also unsure about where to go, and so voted in this case for Galloway.

Well, this week, political journalist John Rentoul scored the same as me, 7/10. I suppose I should not expect to beat him every week. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 4, and 6.

I wonder whether Kim Leadbeater, the System candidate, really won that by-election at all…incidentally, that may also explain why there was no real Conservative Party campaign at Batley and Spen— to ensure that Labour won.

The System made much of the assassination of MP Jo Cox by a dissident in 2016. The later “canonization” was very useful to the System, providing much opportunity for “anti-Nazi”, “anti-racist”, anti-radical propaganda. It would have been embarrassing had the sister of the assassinated MP been offered to the local electorate as the new Labour/System MP— then rejected by them.

The migration invasion continues. Meanwhile, the British people occupy themselves with the success of what is laughingly called the “England” football team, with the squabbles between the two thick princelings, the Royal Mulatta and “Kate”, with the Queen driving a LandRover at age 95, with the (ultimately fairly meaningless) “election” (was it even honest?) of Kim Leadbeater as MP, with the endless “panicdemic” nonsense, as seen through the prism of msm/System lies.

Remember Thalidomide? This, true, is something very different, but there may be other dangers. Or, thinking laterally, maybe the point is not the vaccine as vaccine, but the psychological control: governments across the world forcing citizens to be vaccinated. A conditioning mechanism.

What kind of unit is that?

Despite the efforts of Lord Sumption, Peter Hitchen, many others including me, there are many many idiotic scared rabbits out there who, just because (arguably) the least honest Prime Minister, the least competent Cabinet, the least reliable scientific advisers in memory have told them to wear facemasks, are going to bloody carry on wearing them until given permission to stop! Even where the law does not even mandate the wearing of the “muzzles of compliance”.

Example: driving around in early evening a day or two ago, I saw a man aged maybe 55 or so, riding a bicycle while wearing a facemask! Why? The “law”, the absurd” rules”, the equally absurd “guidance” from misnamed “SAGE” “experts”, say nothing about wearing facemasks while cycling, so why was this idiot doing it? Some personal pathology? It cannot have been because he wanted to comply with law but mistook the law, because there is no law saying that you must wear one of these stupid masks while cycling. Also, he was riding on a pavement.

Now we have the same old voices, Whitty etc, trying to keep the facemask nonsense going after 19 July 2021, the latest supposed “Freedom Day”. There is a huge transnational conspiracy behind most of this.

Britain’s (and the world’s) developing NWO/ZOG regime

An interesting article seen today: https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/feeling-downtrodden-you-aint-seen-nothing-yet/:

We are living under tyranny. The novelty of our situation has made its essence difficult to grasp, while the comforts that we still enjoy (for now) are concealing this reality for many, but the direction of travel is clear. The British government, and other governments, are operating through propaganda, censorship, deception, whisper networks, diktats, smear campaigns, political corruption and political repression to disseminate a pseudo-scientific narrative and ideology intended to entrench their power.

Government scientists, claiming to be speaking apolitically on the basis of ‘pure scientific facts’ are producing, on commission, pseudo-objective recommendations to camouflage an unrelated set of policies intended to achieve political and economic ends. At the same time, other government scientists manipulate the public with terrifying images and slogans, to pressurise against examining the government claims too closely.

The real policy agenda is fundamentally destructive and unpopular. Nobody was asked about it, nobody voted for it, and nobody wants it, except for the powerful global corporate, financial and political powers which are now collaborating to install it though force and fraud.

This is the pandemic: a global shock doctrine used as cover fundamentally to restructure global society.

The next political step in the plan remains the total social control matrix represented by immunity passports. For the moment, Britain is kept in lockdown because the lockdowns are required in order ‘to escape’ via vaccine passports; this too, of course, will not be an escape but an enslavement. Further steps will involve intensifying persecution of the ‘anti-vaxxers’, that is, all opposition to the government as it becomes more nakedly tyrannical, along with actions to co-opt opposition, misdirect it, misrepresent it and deflect it. A variety of active measures have begun already, for example the reported mandatory vaccination of NHS and care home workers.

Two weeks ago New York asset manager BlackRock began purchasing whole neighbourhoods of single-family homes in the United States. The idea is to shift from an ownership to a more profitable rental model. As the World Economic Forum says: ’You will own nothing and you will be happy.’

You actually will be a slave. Your social existence will now be made dependent on an algorithm determining how good a slave you are.” [Daniel Miller, writing in Conservative Woman online magazine].

In the UK, this is manifesting in various ways rather rapidly.

The country is split into two: the majority, perhaps vast majority, who take everything about “the virus”, its supposed importance, and the measures taken around it by government, at face value; and the smaller section of society who realize or have realized that “something is going on” that has little to do, directly, with necessary public health precautions etc, but much to do with the creation of a kind of disguised police state combined with the simultaneous creation of a panic-driven “public fear state”.

Well, once again I beat John Rentoul. He scored 6/10, but I trump that with 7/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 3 and 10 (though hit the post on question 2, thinking that it was 25 years and not the correct 20).

Much as I have little or no time for Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer, I am yet surprised at some of those opinion poll responses. Boris-idiot leads a charmed life (so far)…

As for Andy Burnham, I realized years ago that he was a likely Labour Party leader (amid a poor selection bunch) but I see from the opinion poll that while about half the respondents would be more likely to vote Lab were Burnham to be leader, and only 10% less likely, 41% are unsure. Maybe Burnham is seen as dull (just like Starmer).

The problem for Labour, as I have blogged repeatedly, lies not only or mainly with its leader(s) but with its whole raison d’etre.

Most of the measures taken have been a complete waste of time. That applies particularly to the facemask nonsense.

Roanna Carleton-Taylor and “Resisting Hate”

Twitter users will have seen many tweets by one Roanna Carleton-Taylor of Derbyshire (near Chesterfield), who was the mainstay of yet another hate-filled “anti-fascist” “organization” (consisting of a small number of lunatics and/or non-Brits). It is or was (possibly defunct now) smaller than the better-known and mainly Jewish “anti-hate” hate orgs such as “Hope Not Hate” and “United Against Fascism”.

“Roanna” was on Twitter as “@antifashwitch” and is now “@oilpaintwitch”. She has tweeted about me occasionally in the past; also about Alison Chabloz and others. She is friendly on Twitter with a few mentally-disturbed Jewish and other trolls in North London and elsewhere.

I have just seen a WordPress blog post about her, her husband, and others, which post is so plainly libellous (though I believe probably true) that I decline to quote from it or even link to it here.

Not that I am worried about being sued. My financial status now is such that I am effectively “unsueable” (to the chagrin of a few ambulance-chasing Jew lawyers and others!). Also my legal skills are still (mostly) there (despite having not had professional outing for many years). The Jews on Twitter have often mocked (what they assert were) my poor talents, but the unpleasant old Jew Q.C. who led the complaint against me to the Bar Standards Board in 2014 (resulting in my disbarment in late 2016) wrote to the BSB that, inter alia, “[Millard] has a strong and subtle intelligence“, if I recall his letter aright…

“Resisting Hate” seems to have imploded now, and “Roanna” has turned to painting. Her oils, some of them, are not too bad in fact, rather odd but quite original. Not sure what to call them. Something in the Primitive category, maybe. I am probably not qualified to categorize them. They have a certain soulfulness, suffused with foreboding.

In fact, I am often interested to see what happens to those who say “bad things” about me on Twitter and elsewhere, or indeed do bad things. These are or were persons who had never met me, knew little or nothing about me, yet were happy to laugh at my disbarment in 2016, laugh at my being expelled from Twitter in 2018 etc, and even to make malicious complaints about me to Internet organizations, professional organizations, even police organizations.

Quite a few of those mentioned above are now dead (natural causes, and “nothing to do with me, guv”…). I refrain from naming them because some troll would no doubt claim to the police that I am posting “grossly offensive” things. I sometimes amuse myself by reading the trolls’ (often still-extant) tweets attacking or mocking me. Who’s laughing now?…

Others have had other “tragic” events happen to them or to their families. Again, I choose not to give specific examples. Some of my most relentless trolls and pursuers are also now suffering from serious medical conditions.

Ha ha! George Galloway seems to be making the difference between either a very close win (for either main System party), and a Labour-crashes-in flames defeat (and so quite clear Con win by default).

Stunning…

As I remarked earlier, I might have little time for Starmer, but that people see “Boris” as more intelligent and, incredibly, more trustworthy than Starmer!… What dystopian parallel universe is this?

For me, leaving aside the plainly significant local factors, I should say that there is huge dissatisfaction with the present ridiculous government, but that, also, people have nowhere to go as yet. Yes, the LibDems had a stunning by-election victory in Chesham and Amersham, but there is no LibDem revival generally; and very few will vote Labour in southern England outside (or even inside) London.

The overnight upsurge of Brexit Party in 2019 is a lesson not much taken on board. If it had not been “controlled opposition”, if its leader had been someone more honest and ideological than snake-oil salesman Nigel Farage, if Farage had not stabbed Brexit Party in the back during the General Election, if if if…

Still, if one party can do it, rise up “from nowhere”, another party, social national and more honest, could do the same…

Interesting perhaps, but there was a similar list before the 2019 General Election. I have no faith either that the LibDems will revive enough to become significant players on the national stage or, in the unlikely event that they were to repeat their 2010 successes, that the LibDems would not then sell out again, as they did in 2010, for ministerial portfolios and money.

Ha ha! “Unusually“?! What about, just off the top of my head, “Boris”, Theresa May, David Cameron-Levita, Trump, George W. Bush, James Callaghan, Sarkozy, Yeltsin, Gorbachev, Honecker? Etc… The list is long.

Labour is going nowhere. The next two by-elections (Chesham and Amersham on 17 June 2021, and Batley and Spen on 1 July 2021), should give an idea of the state of play. At present, I am inclined to think that Batley will fall to the Conservatives, and that Chesham and Amersham will result in a Conservative win, and with a Labour lost deposit (maybe).

Exactly. The “cases” are almost all a mirage. No symptoms at all, or in some cases mild flu-like symptoms (though influenza can of course be fatal).

Many people are still fooled by the “panicdemic”, which is in a way unsurprising, after nearly a year and a half of truly relentless msm propaganda across the world. All the same, there are many people who can see that the virus scare has been weaponized for other purposes.

I have not had the vaccine(s), and have no intention of having any. Not necessarily because of any sinister aspects attaching to the vaccine(s); those claims may or may not be accurate. The fact is that the vaccines probably ward off the dreaded virus only somewhat anyway, as the virus mutates.

In any case, in the part of southern coastal England where I live, only 8 persons have died in the past month “within 28 days of a positive test”. Most of the 8, if not all, will have died from other causes (even car crashes!); it is very doubtful whether even 1 died “from” or even “with” Covid-19. That is in an area of 291 square miles, with a population of 180,000.

In other words, in the past month, in my part of England, 1 person has died “within 28 days of a positive test” (n.b. not “of” or even “with” Covid-19) out of every 22,500 inhabitants.

The whole “panicdemic” thing has become absolutely ridiculous in the UK, not least the facemask nonsense.

Meanwhile, people’s lives and health are trashed.

The slow collapse of Ulster Unionism. Ironic. The Official IRA, and then the Provos, tried to storm into the future with their Armalite and other weapons, only to be defeated, tactically, in the field, but all the time, the Irish Republican community’s women, pushing out more babies on average than those of their Loyalist counterparts, were shifting the boundaries strategically, as the general Republican community’s numbers increased vis a vis those of the Loyalist community. Looks as though the tipping point is near.

There we have it— the Westminster Bubble. John Rentoul just cannot see that the BBC has, in the colloquial, “blown it” with the bulk of the British public, just as has the Labour Party. The BBC was both generally trusted and generally at least not disliked, but that was 20-30 years ago, Mr. Rentoul…

Unusually, John Rentoul beat me in this week’s quiz, scoring 7/10; I scored only 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 4, 5, and 9.

Justice, injustice, or vindictiveness?

Read this report: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9554237/Pro-Palestine-trade-unionist-jailed-fighting-Jewish-barrister-Hampstead-political-pub-row.html.

The defendant attacked a Jew lawyer who was himself, not long before the attack, quite violent (and had to be restrained). The defendant then, having been ejected from the pub where both parties had been drinking (incidentally, one in which I myself have had a drink once or twice, though about 30 years ago) returned and attacked the alleged victim, so could not, in law, have pleaded self-defence.

The alleged victim apparently suffered considerable injury.

I can see why the defendant was charged with “s.18” GBH (Grievous Bodily Harm with intent) rather than the lesser “s.20” GBH, the defendant having returned to the alleged victim (accompanied by his, the defendant’s, sons). There was, plainly, an intent both to attack the alleged victim and also to inflict serious harm upon him.

Where I find the matter unjust is in the sentence.

A nine-year sentence! Almost ludicrously harsh on the facts (at least as presented in the newspaper), and in this case the defendant has been sentenced to serve 2/3 of that, meaning 6 years.

I hope that the defendant will appeal this seemingly harsh sentence.

Another point that interested me was that the alleged victim says that the defendant “goaded” him “into revealing [the alleged victim’s] ethnicity“, i.e. that he is a Jew. So he wanted to keep it secret or unremarked upon to some extent? I seem to recall that Dr. Goebbels once commented on what he implied was a typical attitude:

These incidents happen when people are in drink. I also seem to recall that the playwright, Dryden [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dryden], was targeted and attacked by the Lamb and Flag pub in Covent Garden (which pub is still plying its trade today, and in which I have, again, had a drink though, as with the King William IV in Hampstead, long long ago). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dryden#Personal_life; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamb_and_Flag,_Covent_Garden.

We sometimes forget quite how violent and uncontrolled London life was in the past (too).

John Rentoul’s quiz tweet of the week

Well, I usually do better than John Rentoul (almost always, in fact), and this week was no exception: John Rentoul scored 6/10, but I beat him easily with 9/10. The question to which I did not know the answer was question 6 (though I looked up the answer and realized that I did, sort-of, or in the back of my mind, know it, so I nearly scored, for the first time in these Saturday quizzes, 10/10. Damn). Still, 9/10 it is, this week.

Labour now represents mainly the ethnic minorities (except Jews, wealthy Indians and Chinese), the public service workers (esp. NHS), and the so-called “woke”. So where should it be based? Brixton? Spitalfields?

I wonder whether that clown is receiving (but unable to touch at present) monies deposited offshore for him, or has any promise of such monies? I should not be surprised.

Well, the UK electoral system is manifestly unjust, of course. The following example from the General Election of 2015 makes the point:

Boundaries can be (and are) drawn to achieve a desired result:

Alles gut…but frankly I think that my analysis, in blogs of the past couple of days, has been far better (immodest though that reads…).

The reality is that people are pushing back against both main System parties. In areas usually Conservative-voting, against the Conservative Party; in areas traditionally Labour, against the Labour Party. The people are frustrated.

The voters (and the many millions of non-voters) want something different, yet are presented with a System-controlled fake binary choice (plus a LibDem “dustbin” option, and here and there a few “controlled opposition” crank options), neither of which two main options they really want, or even respect.

Exactly. I have been blogging in that vein and, before that, tweeting (until a Jew pack managed to have my Twitter account closed down in 2018), for years.

In the UK, the self-describing “Left” and/or pseudo-socialists put out 95% of their effort into “deplatforming” those they have decided to hate (especially people like me, those with real ideas), rather than trying to present an alternative to global finance-capitalism, the New World Order (NWO), and Zionist Occupation Government(s) (ZOG).

In fact, the self-describing “Left” has no alternative to present, unless you count as a alternative world-view some farrago of “antiracism”, “antisexism”, compliance with Jew-Zionism (sometimes, absurdly, mixed with anti-Israel-ism), “holocaust” fables, anti-“Nazi” rhetoric, and a vague belief in the goodness or efficacy of washed-up societies such as Cuba or Venezuela.

The self-describing “Left” has not really understood yet that history left them behind in 1989 (some of them don’t even understand that history started to leave them behind in 1956).

Here we are, one year away from the next great pivotal year in the 33-year cycle, 2022, with the international conspiracy/consensus moving towards its “Great Reset”, and people in the UK are still talking or tweeting about “the Tories” and “Labour”, as if they really mean something fundamental. Those people do not understand that the System parties in the UK are like Soviet chocolate boxes— the chocolates differing in shape but with identical fillings.

As for “Leftism” (I myself have never designated politics as “Left” or “Right”), the following cartoon says it all:

The British people —what’s left of them— do not want or welcome evidence, they just want to be told that they are safe in all circumstances. All measures are accepted if that is the justification.

You have seen it in the last year or more of “panicdemic” measures. People are told that ludicrous facemask muzzles save them from the dreaded virus (which has —supposedly— killed about 1 in 1,000 UK people, but really far far fewer), and people want to believe that. Those who do not (and fail to wear them as mandated) are fined, and so deterred from not wearing facemasks. cf. “holocaust” “denial” laws in some countries.

The same or similar applies, mutatis mutandis, to the vaccine promotion etc.

The days are long gone when the Soviet Union might have invaded the UK; Russia today has no wish to do so, and no ideology to underpin that kind of strategy. If Russia ever were to invade, though, the British of today would roll up like a map…

Fantasy strategy…

Once the Queen goes, they all have to go. New page. New words. New lives.

Especially now that Labour has become a basically minority-ethnic party; at least, that is very much the direction of travel. Which means that most of the white British, especially white English, have just switched off from Labour. They might or might not vote Conservative, but Labour is very much yesterday’s news.

The Keys of the Kingdom

Saw a fine old film called The Keys of the Kingdom [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Keys_of_the_Kingdom_(film)]. Based on a book by the arguably now-almost-forgotten A.J. Cronin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A._J._Cronin], one of those writers who, while bestselling authors in their day, are later rather neglected. I suppose that Edgar Wallace was another example; he sold 50 million copies of his many works: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_Wallace.

Watching The Keys of the Kingdom, it again occurred to me how many deeply Christian films were made by Hollywood in its days of greatness, despite the fact that all or almost all studios were owned by Jews. Ben Hur would be just one other example, others yet being Quo Vadis, The Robe, etc.

Today, it is different. Film studios are now usually not only owned by Jews, but the films often directed by Jews, and those films tend to be bitterly Zionist (often promoting the “holocaust” narrative) and/or serving a materialist agenda. Spielberg is only one example.

Wonderful. A stand taken against the “control” agenda.

As far as the facemask nonsense is concerned, the fear engendered by the System propaganda of a year ago is only a veneer now. Few really believe that everyone is at risk of death. They know (or have guessed something similar) that only 1 in 4,000 people in the world has been killed by “Covid-19”, and that even in swamped (by immigrants and tourists) Britain, only 1 in about every 1,000 people has died from “the virus” (or, more accurately, “within 28 days of a positive test”, though in reality from other conditions).

No doubt the propagandists will try to enforce continued facemask muzzling, but the people are already giving up, despite the dictatorial and possibly invalid “laws”, “rules” etc. The social pressure is less now, as well. I filled up the car with fuel a few days ago and genuinely forgot to put on a disposable mask as I went to pay at the kiosk. A woman exited, also maskless, and the cashier, likewise maskless, did not ask me to put on any mask; in fact, the matter was not mentioned, and she even smiled, a fact I attribute either to her sunny personality or to my charming manner…

In what were “normal” times, this present government of clowns could and would not exist, certainly not for long, but we have a situation in which there is no legitimate government, yet also no legitimate nor effective official Opposition or opposition party. The former Labour leader, Corbyn, who was weak, and was a bit of a joke, but at was least anti-Zionist (up to a point), was replaced by the Jew-lobby puppet, Keir Starmer, whose idea seems to be to say, all the time, to the Government “we support 90% of what you do, but you should be doing it better…oh and doing it on bended knee, and wearing a facemask“!

I should not be surprised if Labour under Starmer were to start to do worse in elections even than under Corbyn and Miliband.

In Scotland, looks as though Scottish Labour (led now by a Pakistani) has pretty much given up (see tweet below):

Well, this week I scored 8/10, thus again beating political journalist, and diehard Blairite, John Rentoul, though he managed 7/10, far better than his embarrassing 1/10 of last week (I always give him full credit for honesty, though). The questions which I was unable to answer this week were questions 6 and 8.

Diary Blog, 17 April 2021, including latest thoughts about the Alison Chabloz situation

Alison Chabloz

Readers of this blog may be interested to know where persecuted satirical singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz stands now in terms of her appeal against her recent conviction and sentence.

After yesterday’s failure of her application for bail pending appeal, Alison remains incarcerated at Bronzefield Prison near Heathrow Airport.

In previous blog posts about Alison’s predicament, I have written (correctly) that, taking account of the usual 50% discount on sentences, as well as time taken off for days spent in police custody, at trial etc, and also the 4 days taken off for time served prior to Alison’s successful previous appeal (in 2020), she might expect release in any case by the end of May.

The above calculations, though correct in themselves, left out the effect of the now-ubiquitous “early release on tag” programme, via which prisoners are now commonly released at even earlier stages and monitored by electronic tags usually attached to the leg above the ankle.

Usually-reliable sources inform me that Alison Chabloz is likely (though that is not absolutely definite) to be released “on tag” by about 26 April 2021, so (if that is so) only about 9 days from now.

After release, whether “on tag” or otherwise, Alison will be monitored until the end of the period of the original full 18-week sentence handed down on 31 March 2021, i.e. until early August 2021; during that period, Alison can be recalled to prison, contingent on various circumstances. If that were to happen, she would probably remain incarcerated until August.

Alison Chabloz is continuing with her appeal, however. It might be thought, from a purely individual point of view, that Alison’s appeal has little point, in view of the fact that she may soon be released anyway. However such observation leaves out consideration of various facts.

Firstly, Alison will no doubt want to make her point that what she said in podcasts about the Jew-Zionist etc was not “grossly offensive” anyway. Secondly, she may wish to have quashed her second “criminal” (political-criminal) conviction. Third, she may wish to head off (if possible) any upcoming nuisance.

At the bail application yesterday, held at Southwark Crown Court, H.H. Judge Tomlinson, presiding, said that that “she received nothing like the maximum...”, which was arguably true, inasmuch as the maximum is 6 months, i.e. 26 weeks. Still, what sort of society imprisons socio-political satirists and commentators at all?

An appeal from the Magistrates’ Court to Crown Court consists of a complete rehearing, in effect a duplicate trial.

If, at the appeal hearing, Alison Chabloz succeeds, and the appeal is upheld, then fine. The conviction will be quashed, and the sentence will fall. Quaestio cadet.

If, on the other hand, Alison’s appeal fails, then the Crown Court has the power to substitute a different sentence, whether longer or shorter. If shorter than the one passed by the Magistrates’ Court, then she would probably be released immediately; if longer, then the length of her actual imprisonment will, unsurprisingly, depend on the length of the term passed. The Crown Court can only sentence, at such an appeal, up to the maximum that was available to the lower court, i.e. (in this case) 6 months.

If Alison’s appeal fails, and if she then is sentenced to the maximum available (which is unlikely, in my opinion), then she will still be out before too long: 6 months, minus the usual 50% discount, is 3 months. That must be taken minus the 1 month already served (assuming that Alison is released before May). It must also be taken minus the ~2 weeks of other custody, time at trial etc in both 2021 and 2020. That would leave about 6 weeks to be served.

In other words, even if Alison’s appeal fails, and even if she then is sentenced to the maximum 6 months, she would in fact serve only a further 6 weeks (and might even be released “on tag” before that).

When an appeal from Magistrates’ Court to Crown Court fails, not uncommonly the Crown Court does not interfere with the length of the original sentence. If that were to happen in this case, Alison would have about another 3 weeks to serve, but might in fact be released “on tag” almost at once.

Alison Chabloz may be in somewhat difficult circumstances now, but the end is in sight.

For someone in prison, even serving a short sentence, letters, cards and books are welcome reminders of the outside world, of friendship and Kameradschaft:

It seems almost cruel to write that I beat John Rentoul yet again, this week scoring 5/10 compared to his shockingly bad 1/10, but as always I give Rentoul full marks for honesty. In fact I nearly scored 7/10, but just could not bring to mind the answers (which I basically knew) to questions 4 and 6; I had no clue about questions 3, 5, and 10.

Strange woman

A strange-seeming woman, looking in her Twitter profile like Boris Johnson in drag, mentions me when replying to a barrister presently being attacked:

Tweeter “Testy Tracy” should read my own account, not the twistedly-false version put out by the Bar Standards Board and the Jewish-Zionist lobby: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

I might add that that barrister’s reply (not shown above because I seem to have technical problems today in copying and pasting tweets) misspelled “cite” as “site”, but I suppose that anyone can make a typo…

Not sure why I am wasting my time, perhaps because “Testy Tracy” is so typical of many UK Twitter users (ignorant, judgmental, yet probably considering herself both educated and intelligent because she attended a “university” —see below—. She seems to lack any understanding of issues), but anyway…

So “Testy Tracy” has “degrees”! No doubt “McDegrees” from a “McUniversity”. Her ignorance about the Bar is patent, which (of course) does not prevent her from having strong opinions about things which she quite obviously fails to understand.

Would you give a silly ignorant woman like that a job? I wouldn’t. I think that that barrister, Yalland (whom I do not know) replied rather politely to what seems to be a semi-crazed creature.

I scored the same as John Rentoul this time: 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 5, 9, and 10.

That is the extraordinary thing about the misnamed Scottish National Party. It has scarcely any of the characteristics of any form of nationalism.

The other extraordinary thing about the SNP is that it took it about 37 years from its foundations in the early 1930s to get even one MP into the House of Commons: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party#House_of_Commons_2.

The number of Scottish MPs at Westminster varied, in those years, from 72 to (the present position) 59.

The SNP had no more than half a dozen MPs until 2015 (except for the mid/late 1970s, when it had 11). In 2015, the SNP won 56 out of 59 Commons seats (that fell to 35 in 2017, but rose again to 48 in 2019).

What happened in the years 2010-2015? The near-collapse of support, in Scotland, for the existing System parties: Conservative, Liberal Democrat and, above all, Labour, which lost 40 out of its 41 Scottish seats: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_United_Kingdom_general_election#Outcome.

[2015 General Election: a map of the results, showing each constituency as a hexagon of equal size, with the black lines showing separations in regions]
[similar map for the 2017 General Election]
[similar map for the 2019 General Election; and note the erosion of Labour support in England]

The SNP is of course a System party itself: pro-Jewish lobby, pro-Israel, pro-immigration, pro-finance capitalism. Domestically, in policy terms, it is mostly somewhere around where Labour was in the mid 1970s.

For me, the interesting speculation is as to whether, should support for the “three main” System parties collapse in England, a new social national party might not do what the SNP did in Scotland. Despite the absence of any credible nationalist (let alone social-national) party in England, it might be possible, in an extreme situation. The considerable though brief success or near-success of the weak conservative nationalist parties, UKIP and Brexit Party, has shown what might still be possible.
