The msm were mostly polite enough not to show the whole of Caroline Henry, Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire, a massively fat woman who is the wife of Conservative Party MP, Darren Henry [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darren_Henry].
Below, the woman’s husband, Darren Henry, MP for Broxtowe:
“In January 2022, a briefing released by the TaxPayers’ Alliance revealed Henry to be “Britain’s most expensive MP…” after £280,936 of expense claims during the 2020/2021 financial year.“
Looks like they are both, one way or another, living off the fat of the land…
I do not know whether women like that are part of a general trend, but here below is the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire,
Neither of the above women have (or had, prior to election) any experience of policing, needless to say. Britain 2022…
As a matter of fact, it seems that neither of the women noted had much to show in terms of non-political career (or indeed any career) prior to election.
Caroline Henry described herself at election in 2019 as “a businesswoman“, but no details were displayed. She is the mother of two children. As for Donna Jones, she seems to have no children, and no husband, and her only known job (except some vague “work” with Portsmouth Football Club), is that she was, from 2008-2019, a local councillor, and at one time head of the ruling Conservative Party group on Portsmouth Council.
“RAF bosses have apologised for wanting a ‘preferably not white male’ pilot to represent them at a Top Gun: Maverick press event.“
Well, if the the office bods at RAF HQ cannot find a black lesbian, preferably with physical and mental problems, to represent the RAF, perhaps they could just dress up one of the criminal Roma Gypsies in the previously-noted story, and send him out (maybe as a “trans” person)…
Well, this week I again beat political journalist John Rentoul. I scored 6/10, where he managed only 3/10. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 6, 7, and 8.
As I predicted, the Rwanda “get shot of migrant-invaders” plan, absurd though it is (I can think of better ways), has cooked Labour’s goose for now, despite the cost-of-living crisis etc. For one thing, few voters have any confidence in the ability of Jew-lobby puppet Keir Starmer to reduce tax and/or retail prices.
I was always slightly mocking of Corbyn, but at least he was somewhat anti-Zionist, though —fatally— still paying lip-service to the Jewish lobby by his “me-too” behaviour in support of their “holocaust” farrago.
In the end, Corbyn was just too weak, especially in his failure to rid Labour entirely of Jewish and/or Zionist influence.
Having said that, recent by-elections prove that Labour under Starmer is appealing even less than did Corbyn to most voters. Yes, opinion polls have recently been favourable to Labour, but that can change (and already has), like the English weather.
No doubt there will be much excitement if the upcoming local elections give Labour hundreds more council seats. Almost meaningless (even if it happens). One would imagine that the pathetically-poor performance of the “Conservative” Government would wipe it out politically. That does not happen because Labour is perceived as a hypocritical and dishonest nullity.
I see no likelihood of a Starmer-led Labour victory at a general election, despite Boris-idiot leading an almost Kafka-esque “government”.
If only the Jews who came to to the UK in the 1930s and 1940s had settled in Africa, or somewhere…
Still, in that bleak phrase (which is so UK 2022), “we are where we are“…
Blog readers will be aware that persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz was sentenced to 22 weeks of imprisonment last Thursday (14 April 2022).
The conviction and/or sentence is likely to be appealed, but for the present, Alison is in prison, notionally until the expiry of 11 weeks, i.e. 30 June 2022.
Alison’s address and Prisoner Number is now confirmed as below:
Alison Chabloz A6478EK
Anyone who wishes to send postcards, letters, books [new books only, softback only, preferably from online booksellers, but not from Amazon] etc, can send them to the above address.
Small sums of money can also be sent to Alison via the official government system: see https://www.gov.uk/send-prisoner-money. The date of birth of the prisoner is required; Alison’s date of birth is 4 April 1964.
“The war on the West: DOUGLAS MURRAY examines how Western civilisation and all its astonishing achievements in culture, science, medicine and free thinking are being erased from history as the product of ‘dead white males’.”
“I have come to the conclusion that the era we live in is defined by one thing above all — a civilisational shift that is rocking the deep underpinnings of our societies because it is a war on everything in those societies.“
“There are many facets to this war on the West. It is carried out across the media and airwaves, and throughout the education system, from as early as preschool.“
“It is rife within the wider culture, where all major cultural institutions are either coming under pressure or actually volunteering to distance themselves from their own past.”
[Douglas Murray in the Daily Mail].
All very true, but what Douglas Murray fails to point out is that behind the blacks, “browns” and indeed some whites, guilty of the above stands, overall, the Jew (meaning Jewish-Zionist influence and power).
Jews (meaning certain Jews, influential Jews, not the whole 250,000+ in the UK and an even greater number in France) are behind much, arguably most, of the erosion of decent civilized behaviour in the declining Western cultures. We see it in the world of business and finance, and banking, we see it in academia and publishing; we see it in the legal professions (now pretty much taken over, certainly in the UK), and we see it, a fortiori, in the mass media and its recent development, Internet media, including social media.
Those trends are wider than simply a result of Jewish or Jewish-Zionist influence, but that influence is fundamental, and has intensified since about 1989.
Looks as though he is being badly treated by the Kiev-regime secret police.

From the ethno-centric point of view, London can pretty much be written off now.
I have no idea whether there is anything in the “chemtrails” theory, but over the years I have started to wonder whether there is a programme to “sedate” the population in some way. Looking back at the 1970s, 1980s, and then looking at British people today, those around today seem almost lobotomized in some ways. The “panicdemic” police state of 2020-2021 brought that out fairly clearly.
Yes, it’s a public relations exercise, mostly, but enough to cook Labour’s goose. Obviously, I myself oppose both Con and Lab, two sides of the same System coin.
Nothing shows up the bankruptcy of the self-describing “Left” in the UK as much as the saga of Harry and the Royal Mulatta.
The old-style socialists wanted rid of royalty; this lot (not socialists, sometimes pseudo-socialists) want Harry, aka the Royal Cuck, to be even more privileged than he already is, just because he has married a non-white or, more accurately, a half-caste.
As for the Royal Mulatta, the self-describing “Left” shriek that she is a “princess“, and so entitled to respect on that basis!
It is just like the way the self-describing “Left” looks upon Twitter etc, which they say should be allowed to censor and cancel people at will because Twitter and other such platforms are “private enterprises”…
“Once upon a time, in a halcyon era that now seems like a distant golden age, writing books was a creative endeavour; a job in which you let your imagination take flight.”
“Various points of view were allowed to flourish. Stories were peopled by both heroes and villains. The offensive, the reprehensible, even the downright evil, coexisted with the noble and good.”
“Fiction was as multi-faceted as the world we live in, and writing was a realm of free expression in which authors had licence to provoke thought, illuminate discussion, even — dare I say it — voice unfashionable opinions without fear of being pilloried and ‘cancelled’.”
“Our freedom to think expansively and creatively, even to express our own views, is being undermined as surely as it would be in a totalitarian state. Books are literally being pulped if their authors refuse to toe the line. It is as if the Communist Red Guard has taken over.”
“And some of us, myself among them, who have challenged the prevailing orthodoxy on anything from transgender issues to race have been summarily dropped by our publishers.”
“My successful career as an author — one of a team writing animal fantasy novels for children between eight and 12 under the name Erin Hunter — was obliterated overnight.”
“I now work as an HGV driver, a job I find more congenial — actually more intellectually liberating —because my workmates do not mind what opinions I have and are happy to discuss them with me.“
“They are also much less misogynistic than I have found the publishing industry to be.”
“It is ironic, too, that the cadre of self-appointed censors in the book world, who feel it is their role to defend every minority group from the tiniest slight, is largely white, privileged and middle class.”
[Gillian Philip, in the Daily Mail].
There are two main drivers of this slide into censorship, “cancelling” etc in the UK and elsewhere. The first is the Jew-Zionist, and pro-Israel, lobby, the second is the so-called “woke”, self-describing “antifascist” —but actually anti-European-people— element (“anti-white” if you like), as in the case of the hateful Indian academic at Cambridge University, Priyamvada Gopal.
My position: that there should be absolute freedom of expression on social, political, historical and other subjects, meaning particularly, freedom from prosecution. The Court of Appeal in the UK has said more than once that there is “a danger” of a “chilling effect” on free speech, yet the slide continues. Indeed, the present government of sinister clowns is about to make most online speech even more constrained (both directly and indirectly); as for the joke “Opposition” headed by Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer, all it says is “me too, but make the penalties even greater!” Starmer is a waste of space.
Meanwhile, the police of the UK, scarcely able to do their proper job, have eagerly embraced the idea that they should be a “poundland KGB”.
As a matter of fact, an editor at a leading Manhattan literary agency wrote to me, when I was in the USA, 30 years ago, that my unpublished book of 1990 was “without doubt the most extraordinary book I have ever read“, but added that “it will never be published in New York” [implied, though unwritten, “by reason of the Jewish influence in American publishing“].
While I hate the harm done to both civilians and their companion animals by the Russian invasion, it is noteworthy that the same newspapers and TV stations so biased and condemnatory about it all often scarcely covered the far worse harm (in statistical terms) done by NATO (NWO) forces to civilians during their campaigns in Iraq, Afghanistan etc. Millions killed. Not only outside Europe, incidentally. Look at the bombing of Belgrade and elsewhere in Serbia, in 1999: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_bombing_of_Yugoslavia.
The Ukraine invasion has become a horrible bloody mess, but Russia now has no choice but to wade through to the end.
There is now a kind of crazy hysteria across Western Europe, North America etc, whipped up by the msm and what might be called “NWO/ZOG”, that it is some kind of sacred duty upon Western Europe etc to supply the Jewish regime in Kiev with advanced weapons, with money, even with fighter planes. People should be asking from where this comes, and what is its real purpose.
When you look at other recent conflicts (Syria, for example) we did not see anything like this, certainly not to the same extent. However, now that the Kiev regime is involved, complete madness has ensued in the West. The real or underlying reason seems to be a desire to undermine Russia strategically.
If NATO supports the use of donated MiG or other fighter planes by the Kiev regime, planes now based in Poland or elsewhere, that does come close to direct involvement in what amounts to a war against Russian forces.
If planes use Polish airfields in attacks on Russian forces in Ukraine or elsewhere, Russia is sure to take that as Polish involvement in the “war”. Forget the small print. The same would be true were such planes to be unable to land in Ukraine after use, and then land in Poland or elsewhere.
This situation is quite likely to lead to a widening of the conflict, which might then engulf the surrounding countries, almost all of which now belong to NATO. If that happens, then a full European war will be quite likely, and that might morph into a US-Russia nuclear exchange.
In terms of blame, yes… Russia invaded Ukraine, but the causation goes back 25 years, and in those 25 years NATO has expanded, and pushed the boundaries in every way. To blame Russia or Putin for everything that is now happening is facile, even if understandable. The public only sees the TV news headlines, and understands little of the subtleties.
If I had a few millions, or more, I should be relocating now to somewhere like New Zealand or South America.
If I am not mistaken, that last film above shows Krakov, as it was in 1935. I was there in both 1988 and 1989.

Robert Largan is a horrible little bastard. He kicked satirical singer Alison Chabloz when she was down, by tweeting how pleased he was that she had been imprisoned. He is a craven puppet of the Jewish-Zionist-Israel lobby.
Amazingly self-assured performance from such a young girl. Incidentally, “valenki” are felt boots (traditional Russian winter footwear).
Made a foray into a small suburbanized town about 6 miles from my now-humble home. Driving along, and waiting in the car for a while, I was observing the local people. At the railway station, quite a few (what I took to be) 16-18 y-o school students waiting. Every single one was looking at, indeed absorbed in, her or his mobile device, apparently oblivious to other people, the natural world, everything. Few seemed to be typing (if that is the right word); just silently, it seemed, staring down at the device. Strange society…
The other oddity was how many of the older people in the main —in fact only— shopping street were wearing facemasks while walking along; that despite the sun and a light breeze (and the low temperature). About half. The facemask nonsense has become ingrained in the more “conditioned” or less-thinking part of the public.
“POLICE were called to Ringwood School this morning (Monday) as a small group of anti-Covid vaccination protesters forced their way onto its grounds.
The alarm was raised around 8.20am amid reports six people demonstrating against pupils being given the jab had turned up at the school in Parsonage Barn Lane. They gained entry via the reception area.
Twelve patrol cars were said to have been at the scene while officers dealt with the incident as both the Hampshire force and the school assured there was no danger to youngsters or staff.” [local newspaper report].
So no less than 12 police cars were sent to monitor a tiny and peaceful local civic protest involving only six individuals? No wonder the police are unable to deploy resources to deal with ordinary crime. Just as well that no-one made an “anti-Semitic” remark, or it might have been necessary to call for armed anti-terror police back-up…
Quite often now, it appears that this country has gone absolutely mad.
…and we see inflation destroying, starting to destroy, the pay, pensions, and State benefits of the mass of the population. In the early 1920s, particularly 1923, the Weimar Republic currency suffered from hyperinflation, as paper currency was printed in vast amounts.
German hyperinflation destroyed pay, fixed pensions, savings bank deposits, but it also destroyed the enormous war debts and reparation debts incurred by German governments over many years.
Getting it now?
The Rishi Sunak “giveaways” were not really free…he is an “Indian giver”, in short.
This is the thin end of the wedge. As I have been blogging recently, this is a small example of what we shall see in the future, regardless of what happens re. the “panicdemic”. Microchipped populations unable to dissent, on pain of being unable to travel, work, socialize, or even buy food, unless the System allows that via the implanted chip.
Quite. Hugely overpaid idiots such as Gary Lineker. I love the way they are all starting to squawk as they see their rice-bowls about to be taken away.
I saw the equivalent of that in the mid to late 1970s; the way in which social-national groups and parties were infiltrated by both State spies and those working for Jew-Zionist and connected “anti-fascist” orgs.
I, then still in my teens and early twenties, identified to my own satisfaction, though only on the balance of probabilities, several such infiltrators in both the League of St. George and National Front. None were (as far as I know) ever punished, and I believe that some are still alive today. Some have been exposed over the years, others not. There are some about whom even I still have not decided in terms of their guilt or innocence, the evidence being ambiguous or divided. All would be in their seventies or eighties now.
Anyone suggesting that human sacrifice is sometimes called for by some Jews will be accused of propagating an “antisemitic trope”, yet here is one unambiguous example caught on camera and microphone.
Will the police be visiting that old Jew fossil? I doubt it. “Hate crime” is a one-way street in the UK. The police usually do the bidding of the Jew-Zionist lobby.
The Jew-Zionist element’s leadership are usually keen to demonstrate that “British” Jews are first and foremost “British”, rather than Jewish. To that end, measures are taken such as at the small demonstrations (usually dozens rather than hundreds) carried out by “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [CAA] supporters; Israeli flags are discouraged. Instead they wave placards, and the odd Union Jack. The aim is to give a certain (false) impression.
One of the most evil “people” (a humanoid devil) on the planet.
The only suitable word to characterize the situation in most of the “West”, including the USA, France, UK etc, is “infestation”.
Covid police state, Germany. A lady walking her dog is treated as a terrorist because she is not wearing a facemask muzzle. I wonder what would have happened if a real “terrorist” had “done something” to one or more of the bullies? It might make others less eager to terrorize people.
The Labour and Conservative parties are playing their part(s) in a gameplan laid down by secret cabals and “ruling circles”. That plan is tactically-flexible, in a Leninist way, capable of changing to circumvent events such as the Brexit Referendum, general election results etc. The strategy remains broadly as it has been laid down, though. The minor touches may vary, but the broad brush strokes are the same, and paint the big picture.
“Opposition”? Hardy ha ha…Labour would be (if possible) even worse than the present NWO/ZOG government of clowns: more severe fake “Covid” (police state) restrictions, even more black/brown migration invasion, even faster destruction of white English/British race and culture etc. Fake Labour is no alternative at all, and I think that, despite recent opinion polls, the voters are slowly waking up to that.
Quite…there is no ultimate difference either in policy or in practicality between the two main parties of the System.
In fact, if necessary, the present incompetent pack of poseurs (few of whom are English, or even really British) could hold on easily until the end of the 5 year term, i.e. almost the end of 2024. A lot can happen in nearly 3 years.
Until a few years ago, I would never have thought that the RNLI would become part of the enemy forces, pursuing an alien agenda.
So much for the latest episode of the “panicdemic”…

Thus speaks the former Sun “newspaper” propagandist. Thinks that it is wonderful that 300,000 Hong Kong Chinese are coming to the UK (it could eventually be millions). Coming to our crowded island (that is packed with Chinese and so many others already).
I am not hostile to Hong Kong Chinese— in Hong Kong. I have been there a couple of times (the last being a week’s stay at the Sheraton in Kowloon in 2006), and I was very impressed by the people. I just do not want them here, especially in such numbers.

Quite right. In my several interactions with the UK police since I became more active politically online —in the past decade— I have come to realize, rather to my surprise, that the British police (often all-too-easily misled by the Jew-Zionist element) quite often have no idea, or proper idea, of the laws of this country, or of the liberties that still exist under those laws. As for knowledge of history, geopolitics, race and culture generally, forget it!
…and almost all the “civil rights” types, the (often Jew) “human rights” lawyers, the usual suspects of those and other sorts, as well as those working on TV, radio, or in the (again, supposed) “free Press” etc, backed the police state measures! Apart from those (such as me) not, or only peripherally, in the public eye, almost all of the self-proclaimed or supposed defenders of rights, “democracy”, decency, “freedom” etc went the same way, and became, almost overnight, sycophants of the police state. Or were they in reality always puppets of the System?
There have been a few well-known public figures or personalities who, in the past nearly 2 years of “Covid” socio-political madness and repression, have stood up for both liberty and the proper rule of law (law, not mere laws, in a “society under law” rather than a society merely “with laws”; even North Korea and Stalin’s regime have or had laws…).
People often do very wicked and/or cruel things either in the belief that they are not wicked, or because the measures taken are believed to be necessary in order to support a greater good, or to protect society, or an institution of society.
The execution of Giordano Bruno was 500+ years ago, but (to give only a few examples of the syndrome), electric shock therapy is still practised widely today; abuse of psychiatry for reasons of socio-political control did not stop with the Soviet Union and the Serbsky Institute [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbsky_Center] (Google, eg “Tavistock Institute” and “Tavistock Clinic”); and torture for allegedly “good” reasons has been practised even within the past couple of decades by the USA and other supposedly advanced states, as well as by the obvious examples such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and other Arab and/or Muslim states, North Korea etc.

For Britain, as part of NATO, to get into conflict with Russia about Eastern Ukraine, the eastern part of a territory inextricably linked to Russia for over 1,100 years, is absurd, and might lead to terrible consequences in the UK, should actual (strategic/continental) war result from all of this.

From the golden days of Hollywood…
They may not have had the technical resources of today but, at their best, they could really make films back then.
I think that I may have blogged en passant in the past about how I saw Bette Davis a few years before her death, when she was on the (I think) South Bank Show with Andrei Tarkovsky and maybe someone else as well; filmed at the South Bank Centre in London. That was about 4 years before her death. Sometime in the mid-1980s. In fact, despite her age, she outlived Tarkovsky, who died only a year or so later (1986), aged only 54. Tarkovsky had been only about 5 or 6 years old in 1938 when Jezebel was released.
The public were kept back (mostly not allowed into the building at all). Even inside, there was tight control. I was there just to meet someone else but I was introduced by a third party to the (British) chief of Bette Davis’s security (there was a whole expert team guarding her) and he said that I could stand there next to him as she came through with her “lady in waiting” and a couple of other people. An almost fossilized —and rather imperial— figure, aware of her status, rather like the last Queen of Naples.
It was amazing to see how various unwanted people, mainly autograph-hunters, kept trying to get to her, only to be expertly and diplomatically (though firmly) blocked by the guard team. One fellow even swung down (literally) from an external concrete stairway as a small side door was opened! He too was stopped, autograph book and pen in hand, and still tried to persuade the dinner-jacketed guard to let him through! All the while, the guard chief and I stood about 12 feet away, and Bette Davis + small entourage closer yet. Interesting to see. The chief of security remarked to me, as she passed by, something like “there goesa living legend“. A bit of a cliche, of course, but true.
I should say that Europe, including the UK, would be better if it had only a tenth of its present population, if that population consisted of ethnic Europeans with the right attitudes— traditional, yet willing to march into the future.

The start of today’s blog post is written not long after the declaration at North Shropshire, which came around 0415 hrs.
The hour or so of TV news broadcast I have just seen was notable for the superiority of the Sky News coverage over that of the BBC (which I saw briefly before turning over). The Sky presenters were urbane, humorous, and effective, whereas the BBC presenter was a beardless youth who interviewed some BBC talking head who himself seemed odd, oddly alert (and fast-talking, though saying little of interest) at nearly four o’clock in the morning.
As to the result itself, this is “seismic” (as I predicted it would be if the result turned out to be a LibDem win, which I also, though tentatively, predicted); seismic not only for the Conservative Party but for Labour as well.
“Boris” and his pack of clowns are having to learn again the lesson of the French Revolution: you cannot say “let them eat cake” while you guzzle foie gras.
The Conservative Party is making the same mistake in England that the Labour Party made in Scotland, that of saying “where will they [the previously-loyal voters] go?…where can they go?” Labour thought that most Scottish voters would pretty much have to stick with Labour, because they had no alternative. Well, we know how that worked out. It worked for a long time, many decades in fact, but in the end those voters got sick of being taken for granted, and at things not improving for them. Result— Scottish Labour now has 1 MP out of 59 Scottish MPs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Labour#House_of_Commons.
It is always dangerous to assume that people have no alternative. The Conservative Party has thought that, in respect of southern and/or rural English constituencies, for many years. There is no credible social-national party in England, though. The LibDems have always been the “dustbin” alternative. UKIP nearly broke through but was defeated by the FPTP semi-rigged electoral system, and the same was true a decade ago of the BNP (who also had the embedded Jew-Zionist element in the msm working against them).
People in North Shropshire did not vote for the LibDem candidate, as such, but against the “Conservative” one. Big difference.
CCHQ will no doubt refer to the relatively low turnout (46.3%, as against 67.9% in 2019) but part of that low turnout (I think much of that) can be attributed to formerly Conservative voters abstaining, unwilling to vote for the Conservative Party but also refusing to vote LibDem or Labour.
This by-election could go down in history, though it is unlikely to signal the start of (another) LibDem “revival”. Having said that, there are many constituencies where few would vote Labour but many might at least consider a LibDem. Add to that tactical voting by people who would really prefer a Labour MP, and it might add up to something significant.
The Liberal Party scored 31.6% (second place) in 1983; the LibDems’ best result was 25.3% in 1992. The 2021 by-election candidate, who scored only 10% a mere 2 years ago in 2019) has now received 47.2% of votes cast! Voting against (the clown’s candidate), not for the LibDem as such.
So what about the Conservative Party candidate? 31.6%. Well below even the 40.2% of 1997. This was a shout of anger against stupid “Boris” and his pack of clowns. The actual candidate was, in my view, poor: not fully English, and another “Conservative” lawyer (barrister), who was at one time an Army doctor. I am probably biased, but having met a few, I never trust a doctor who becomes a barrister (or a politician, thinking of David Owen, Hastings Banda, Papa Doc Duvalier, “Che” Guevara, Radovan Karadzic etc).
Having said all that, this was not a Neil Shastri-Hurst disaster but a “Boris” and general Conservative Party disaster.
Now, to Labour. Since North Shropshire was re-dedicated in 1983, and until the by-election, Labour has failed to come in second only four times, and only once (2010) since 1992.
It is all very well to talk about tactical voting, or Labour supporters “lending their votes” to the LibDem in order to beat the Con candidate. Yes; no argument on that, but is that the whole story? The 9.7% scored in the by-election was the lowest Labour vote ever in North Shropshire. Even in 1983, at the height of Thatcherism, and when Labour suffered its crushing national defeat under Michael Foot [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_United_Kingdom_general_election], it still scored 14.7% (third place) in North Shropshire.
The conclusion must be that, while many formerly Labour votes went tactically (or otherwise) to the LibDem, many Labour voters just voted with their feet, if such be the bon mot, and stayed home. Labour scored 22.1% in 2019, and 31.1% in 2017 (both under Corbyn) in the constituency.
If this by-election result is bad for Boris-idiot, it is arguably at least as great a blow for Labour’s Jewish-lobby leadership under Keir Starmer. The problem is not just the “Israel first” aspect of Labour’s present leadership, but also the way in which the supposed “Opposition” keeps propping up “Boris” over various matters, such as the Online Harms Bill and, of more immediate political importance, the Covid/Omicron “panicdemic” “rules” and “laws”.
No-one really can have expected Labour to win the by-election, but to fall below 10% is a straw in the wind that (in my view) is significant.
The other parties that stood? Well, the Greens are perennial 5% (or below) candidates, except in Brighton Pavilion, so nothing of interest there. As for the new Farage pop-up, “Reform UK”, it only got a 3.7% vote. I think that people mostly see through Farage now, either as “controlled opposition” or simply as a moneygrasping “slithey tove” who (like “Boris”) just cannot be trusted.
The various small-c “conservative” “nationalist” parties, i.e. UKIP, Reform UK, Reclaim Party, Heritage, and Freedom Alliance, together scored only around 6%, far less than even my low expectations (I had thought 10%, and maybe, as protest, as much as 20%).
A final thought. Brexit is dead as an issue, politically. It has been very badly mishandled (with “Boris” in nominal charge, how could it not have been?), but we are out and we are staying out.
It is amazing what even one determined person can do.
One person can achieve plenty, in principle; a group can achieve so much more, if congruent. Look at how Adolf Hitler was only the 7th actual member (there were other supporters) of the DAP which became the NSDAP, and how he managed to lead those few to go from seven men in a cellar to the pinnacle of supreme power in Germany, despite frenzied and violent Jewish and other opposition. It took him 14 years, but he made it.

I think that (as someone unattached to any System party) I can be considered objective. I agree with Williamson inasmuch as the North Shropshire demonstrates (as I have blogged in the past) that Labour’s problem lies not in its leader(s) but in Labour itself. The fact is (as blogged previously) that Labour is now irrelevant, and if it were not for the UK’s FPTP voting system, would by now have all but disappeared.
Look at North Shropshire. In the general elections from 1997, through 2001, 2005, 2010, 2015, 2017, 2019, and now the 2021 by-election, Labour scored 36%, 35.2%, 25.9%, 18.1%, 19.9%, 31.1%, 22.1%, and now 9.7%.
The elections Labour have fought in North Shropshire since 1997 show an uneven pattern, but more of a decline than a rise. Since and including 2010, only once better than 22.1%, and that was 31.1% in 2017, the first general election Labour fought under Corbyn.
The present Government and the present Labour Opposition are symbiotically chained together, and their policies are in practice very similar.
Starmer is a puppet, or monkey-on-a-stick.
Luke Akehurst is a leading (though apparently non-Jew) pro-Zionist who will now do what he can to defend the “Israel first” “Labour” front bench, and Starmer most of all. Dan Hodges is, of course, correct in saying the very same as I have done (earlier in today’s blog).
Israel’s “monkey-on-a-stick” Sajid Javid (well, one of them…) lauds the ludicrously-misnamed “SAGE” committee, with its 2 years of “millions will die” propaganda and perennially-wrong forecasting. What’s really behind it all? NWO/ZOG and the planned biosecurity police state, the Great Reset etc.
Look at how inflation is rising in the UK. Over 5%, which is twice the rate it was only a couple of years ago. That is what happens when you waste money in huge amounts (as with the “Test and Trace” nonsense), or “give money away” in huge amounts (as with the “furlough” programme and the rest). The currency cannot be diluted for long without real-world effects.
Also, look at how the msm are conditioning the public to accept a far more rapid rise in the age at which people can expect to receive a State pension.
Stealth “taxation” by another name.
The same applies to the “holocaust” narrative…

He’s an idiot. People in the future will wonder how a clown like that ever had the possibility of becoming Prime Minister, even a prime minister of a country that seems to be in terminal socio-economic and socio-political decline.
What is extraordinary about that interview is that the Clown seems to be obsessed by “Covid” and especially “Omicron”.
The Clown makes the right noises about how what the public are interested in is government doing things for them, but does not seem to accept that his government has failed preciselyin that!
The cross-Channel migration-invasion continues, the facemask nonsense interferes with tens of millions of people daily (and creates massive pollution), the roads are unmended, the railways unimproved, the social care sector is being stretched and near-ruined (and certainly not “fixed” as promised), the NHS is scarcely operating except as a “panicdemic” service…the list just goes on.
The Clown’s only hope is to keep the fear propaganda going re. “Covid”, despite the fact that only about one in a thousand UK people has actually died “with” it (not of it) (and as far as actual English/British —“white”— people are concerned, it is not even one in a thousand. Maybe one in fifteen hundred. Serious but not existential. The real figures may be even less sensational.
Yes, that really came out for a moment or two. The Clown is a rather sinister clown, or would be, had he autocratic power.
This is when an old-style heavyweight political bruiser like Andrew Neil can come into his own, but the Clown has usually refused to be tackled by him. Pity. As for Sam Coates, one wonders whether he would have been quite so forthright before it became obvious that the Clown is on the way out. Perhaps, perhaps not.
People are sometimes seen writing in newspapers that Johnson wants to leave, to start penning rubbish newspaper columns again (and getting £250,000 a year for it, like he did before, when, inter alia, the Barclay Brothers were paying via the Daily Telegraph), and writing the sort of memoirs that attract million-pound advances and royalties. I think not. Johnson is a moneygrubber, true, but his primary motivation is to hold power, though not because he wants to do anything with it (and in any case he has no real ideas, and no real capabilities). He wants to hold power just for the sake of it, and to be centre of (favourable) attention.
I do not blame Johnson alone. I blame the msm for puffing this useless barrel of lies and self-promotion as “Prime Minister in waiting” for 20 years. I suppose that his part-Jew origins (and pro-Israel attitude) helped him there.
I also blame the elderly Conservative Party members who elected him as leader of that party. I blame also the MPs who initially nominated and voted for him. Finally, I blame the ingrained political stupidity of the British, especially English, voters, who allowed themselves to be conned by a really not very plausible con-man.
Is he at least part-((( )))? I do not know. If anyone has more information, by all means send it.
Incidentally, I noticed in a news report that 10, Downing Street displayed a 9-branched Jewish candlestick in its window recently, during the recent Jewish religious holiday. Is that a new custom? I had not heard of it previously.
At least the Roman Army only tested poisons on the badly-wounded…
We become more “enriched” and “blessed” daily…I wonder what that pair are? Brain surgeons? Civil engineers? Small boat navigators? Hardy ha ha…
In “the old days”, there was a severe disconnect between what the Soviet mass media pumped out and the reality experienced by most of the 290 million Soviet citizens. I never thought that it would happen here, but look at the BBC, Sky, ITN now!
According to UK msm, we are in the grip of a huge pandemic, which can only be ameliorated by wearing facemask muzzles, being “vaccinated” by experimental “vaccines” and almost weekly (soon) “boosters”, and by shutting down much of the country.
We are also told that either there is no mass immigration problem, or that the invasion is something that we should welcome, and that the invaders will “enrich” us and benefit us.
We are also told that there is a huge “terror” threat, mostly from “the far right”, meaning social-nationalists (white people, often of school age)…
The reality is of course quite different. At some point, the msm drones will have to be held accountable for their lies and their evil retailing of NWO/ZOG propaganda.
As a matter of fact, I expected better from Neil. Despite his pro-Jewish Lobby rants on TV in the past few years, I thought that he believed at least in a reasonable level of personal and social liberty. Apparently not.
I suppose that one man’s “reasonable restrictions” are another’s “Covid police state”…
At the end of the day, Neil is part of the System, speaking broadly.
Incidentally, Neil has (though on another issue) become rather litigious of late; I therefore give fair warning (in re the —admittedly highly unlikely— contingency of his taking any legal action against me), that I have effectively no assets any more, and so am as good as “unsueable”. I also know how to make bullying litigation very expensive for those launching it.
So the mainstream narrative was natural mutation, while the secondary narrative (as retailed by Sir Richard Dearlove and others) is that Covid-19 was produced in a Chinese laboratory, and that it then escaped somehow.
What about a third idea (and that is the one I tend to favour): the virus was produced in a Chinese laboratory, but did not escape accidentally. It was released deliberately, but that outbreak was, as planned, brought under control quite quickly in Wuhan and other parts of China.
Meanwhile, though, the same virus somehow made its way to the very places, meaning the Alpine ski resorts, best situated a. to incubate new cases and, b. as launch pads from where the virus might be spread quickly throughout the western and central parts of Europe.
Now how was it that that virus jumped from provincial China to the ski resorts of the Alps? We could be looking here at a scenario not far removed from the background of films such as The Cassandra Crossing [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cassandra_Crossing]. Incidentally, “This film was very famous in China with Chinese dub in 1980s” [Wikipedia].
As to why such a “conspiracy theory” might have a basis in reality, there are several possibilities.
Kristalltag Wien— jetzt! This (the “panicdemic”) could be the issue that allows social nationalism to break through across Europe.
Don’t make it seem as if inept “Boris” actually has a “plan”; the only plans are in the minds of those who control the “Boris” show from behind the scenes. Look at the organ-grinders, not the monkeys.
I’m back again…. And then if l go down… I’ll be back again … RT
…and already the international or transnational conspiracy is thinking about how to introduce mandatory subcutaneous microchips as a form of “Covid passport” (but really as a means of tracking the individual 24/7).
I have not watched a full Question Time since I returned to live full-time in the UK, well over a decade ago, and saw the televised lynching of Nick Griffin. The mask of the BBC and other msm fell off there and then, and the influences behind most of the msm were exposed to the light.
Incidentally, I see that the System’s oft-seen “Auntie Tomasina”, Bonnie Greer, who was seated (obviously deliberately) next to Griffin on that TV show trial, is still tweeting her stuff, now supporting both the “Covid” police state and the “black lives matter” nonsense-propaganda…
He is right. The UK needs a social-national government. That means that a real social-national movement must exist. That movement can only exist if there exists both a leader and a support-base.
…and when Tom Watson was finally pressured to give up being an MP (he had been a huge expenses cheat, and was also involved with several other forms of questionable behaviour), he was appointed, in 2020, head of UK Music, the umbrella organization for commercial interests involved in music. A body permeated with Jewish interests and influence. The outgoing head of UK Music had been Michael Dugher, also a former “Labour” MP, also a member of Labour Friends of Israel…
Indeed, the same Michael Dugher became, in 2020, the Chief Executive of the Betting and Gaming Council, the main lobby group for the gambling industry, another commercial area riddled with Jewish money and influence.
Further, in September 2020, Tom Watson was also appointed “senior advisor” to Flutter Entertainment, which controls the huge gaming businesses Paddy Power, Betfair, and Sky Bet. Before Flutter Entertainment opened its wallet, Watson had been very critical of the gaming industry. For bastards like Watson, money really talks…
Watson was blackballed, in effect, from becoming a member of the House of Lords, by reason of his activities and behaviour, but it seems that he may yet reach the Lords at some point, the present “Labour” leader, Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer, having re-nominated him.
Look at the key thread running through the above four paragraphs: Jewish money, power, and influence, suborning corrupt and venal MPs and others.
£20 million? So that would be about1/2000th of what this appalling regime has wasted on the “Test and Trace” nonsense alone?….
Perhaps Andrew Neil might like to comment…
Oh, many would…the kind of Twitter twits often seen calling for almost permanent “lockdown”, facemask nonsense, weekly “boosters” of the supposed “vaccines” etc…in other words, the System’s willing slaves.
Priti Patel? Just another System monkey-on-a-stick.
Eventually, the USA will either break down, or break apart, if it does not impose dictatorial order; not because all blacks are evil, or murderous, or because there are no intelligent blacks at all, but because a society with a majority black population (which is the direction of travel) simply cannot sustain an advanced culture and civilization. We in the UK are seeing the emergence of similar problems and manifestations, though arguably at a less-serious stage.
In other words, that black woman is saying “buy only from blacks” or “boycott non-black businesses“…Imagine if she were saying the reverse. The skies would have fallen in!
In other news, today is Friday 10 December 2021…
What does Bastani mean Twitter “would” close down dissenting accounts?! A pack of Jew-Zionists conspired together to get Twitter to “suspend” (expel) me in 2018. David Icke, Katie Hopkins, Mark Collett, Laura Towler, Alison Chabloz, and legions of others have gone the same way.
Incidentally, I see that the recently-replaced head of Twitter, one Dorsey, supposedly has a fortune of about USD $9 BILLION! Yet Twitter, since it started has, overall, made a massive loss…
“US-based microblogging and social networking service Twitter reported a net loss of $536.7 million in the third quarter of 2021, according to its financial results released Tuesday. The results showed a steep decline from net income of $28.6 million in the same period of last year.” [US financial Press]; and
“American micro-blogging site Twitter on Wednesday announced that it had suffered a net loss of $1.14 billion in 2020 representing a net margin of -31 percent. On the other hand, Twitter’s costs and expenses saw an increase of 19 percent year over year totaling $3.69 billion while revenue amounted to $3.72 billion.” [US financial Press].
What is really going on here?
The problem with the Bastani type is that —in his case— not being really or fully British (half-Iranian), and with a head full of fake post-1989 pseudo-“Marxism”, he just struggles to connect with the real British psyche. See, for example, the tweet below:
He does not understand that it is not “the British elite” who are animal-lovers, but virtually the whole British people. Indeed, it might well be argued that the wealthier Brits are more selective in their love for animals than the poorer ones (who do not, most of them, hunt, shoot or even fish).
Looking at Bastani’s tweet, it is more ambiguous in meaning (not so good for a journalist…) than it seemed when I first saw it. Does he mean that “the British elite” like to kill animals (as when foxhunting), or that they get worked up or agitato in opposition when others do it? In the idiom of today, “whatever”…
In fact, Bastani’s organization, Novara Media, seems (from what I have seen on Twitter etc) to be mainly composed of non-Brits, and indeed anti-Brits, people such as Ash Sarkar.
“Communism” (which those people claim to support or espouse), has certainly gone the way Marx predicted: “first time tragedy, second time farce“…
Says it all…those idiots love to “deplatform”, then one fine day it happens to them. Same is true of the Jew-Zionists on Twitter. Oh, what a (typically-Jewish) fake-victim scream goes up when one of their pack is expelled or suspended from Twitter!
Having said the above, Bastani is right at times, as in this tweet:
Never underestimate the political stupidity of the British people: those Con voters would vote Con under any conceivable circumstance, just as, until recently, there were swathes of the UK where voting “Labour” was a community tradition, rarely dissented from.
The problem people have is that there is no credible alternative to even Boris Johnson’s ludicrously-poor government. The Israel-first Starmer Labour Party would be a worse elected dictatorship even than the “Boris” one.
“Boris” is not credible, his government is not credible, but then neither is the shadow government of Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer. Imagine Starmer as PM, Angela Rayner as a Cabinet minister, dictatorial Yvette Cooper as Home Secretary etc. I’m angry just thinking about it, even though I truly despise “Boris” and all his Cabinet.
Bastani and his lot are correct, though, in my view, in saying that the Corbyn-style Labour Party was no less “electable” than that of Starmer. Maybe more electable.
Like many “alt-Right” and/or “conservative” pseudo-nationalists, that Tom Harwood character deserves a good kick.
This whole thing, the “panicdemic”, has become a test of how stupid and how easily duped the British people really are…and it is not going well, frankly.
Take a look at the readers’ comments (and voting) to that Daily Mail story: hundreds, and even thousands, of favourable votes for every unfavourable one.
The West is in social and cultural crisis, and it may only take the addition of an economic one for us to raise the banners of social national renaissance.
Russia also has its problems, of course.
…and soon, online criticism of those corrupt bastards will be censored, barred from social media by the Online Harms Bill presently going through Parliament, supported by what remains of the Labour Party…
For me, life under “Covid” or, more accurately, under the toytown police state imposed (using “the virus” as excuse and battering ram) in 2020 and 2021, though irritating, has been no more stressful than before, possibly because I have not been in Bar practice —or other daily activity requiring one to be on the qui vive— for over a decade now.
I laughed to see that the pathetic rump of the New Statesman thinks that “normality” is returning. I suppose they mean cretinous persons are again allowed to cram into loud unpleasant “clubs” etc.
Vaccine passports, the (continuing though ebbing) facemask nonsense, the pointlessness of travel under the plethora of (UK and other) “rules” and laws, the ever-worsening migration-invasion, supermarkets with gaps on the shelves, a “British” Cabinet where almost all the Cabinet ministers are Jews, Indians, Pakistanis, Kurds etc. This is “normal”?
All that, and still newer restrictions and repressions are planned, not least the “Online Harms Bill”, which may be law (for what that is worth) by early 2022. Then, goodbye to any but the most colourless “free speech” online.
2022, the first year of the next 33-year cycle. Most significant year since 1989.
The Great Reset, allied to the Great Replacement of whites by blacks, browns, Chinese etc, then eventually the mixed-race population promoted by Coudenhove-Kalergi.
Patriotic Alternative broadcast
I was just listening to the above, and still am (as I write). Worth a listen, though I cannot say that I am getting a lot from it. At least Mark Collett is doing whatever he can, while he can.
Guest on that show is one Thomas Balogh, leading light of the National Justice Party of the USA.
Of course, these days people cannot say much even on Internet “radio”, without being harassed, or even arrested and prosecuted: Alison Chabloz, the persecuted singer-songwriter and satirist, was actually imprisoned because (partly because) she took part in a discussion on a podcast of that sort.
I do not usually bother to listen to such discussions, but happen to be listening to that one, so have posted the link so that others can decide what they think of it.
[Re. that podcast by Collett: I listened, in the end, to about 45 mins out of the 2 hours].
Stray “thought out of season”
The ZOG/NWO System in the UK is shutting down (in fact, has already largely shut down or very heavily restricted) the channels of legitimate and peaceful socio-political expression. Where does that leave the people of Britain?
She looks Jewish. Quelle surprise. No idea who it is, though.

Idiots. Just idiots. Sitting in their million-pound houses in Somerset, insulated from reality by family money and/or private pensions, and quite likely private healthcare as well. In lay terms, also traitors, supporting the flood of migrant-invaders into this country. Pity there does not exist an SA to teach them the error of their ways.
[addendum, 2 October 2021: the tweet has been expunged]
What strikes me as crazed is that, firstly, students “reported” (denounced) a fellow-student for stating a simple fact, and, secondly, that the university then sided with the denouncers! Like a Komsomol witchhunt in the old Soviet Union…
The part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer currently posing as Prime Minister is planning to repress freedom of expression even further in the UK. He is supported in that by Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer and his declining “Labour” pack of idiots.
Starmer: “Dangerous algorithms on Facebook and Instagram, and Hope Not Hate have shown me an example of violent Islamism and far-right propaganda on TikTok.’
He called on the Prime Minister to ‘commit to bring forward the second reading of the Online Safety Bill by the end of this calendar year’, adding: ‘If he does, we’ll support it.’” [Daily Mail].
The bastard is taking his “facts” from the malicious and misnamed Jew-Zionist snooping organization “Hope not Hate”!
Here we see the complete fakery of so-called “democracy” in the UK: repression of free speech rolled out swiftly, with the so-called “Opposition” mostly voting with the Government (of clowns). “Democracy” in the UK is a complete sham.
“Zionist Occupation Government” is not just a phrase or a “conspiracy theory”. It’s fact. It’s right in front of us.
Glasgow is not the only area badly-administered. I have just had a ghastly and (in the end) 2-hour roundtrip, unavoidable and made awkward and irritating by several simultaneous lots of roadworks (I suppose at least some of the roads are being repaired), both in the country and in a small town.
How is it that (especially in respect of smaller roads), repairs have evidently not been carried out for years? I saw tiny lanes never seen by me before , many with terrible surfacing, road bumps and potholes. Even at (at times) 20 mph, a journey of bumps and jolts.
To make it worse, I turned on BBC Radio 4, which had a programme of such surpassing awfulness that I looked it up when I arrived back at my very humble abode: Laura Barton’s Notes on Music. The only reason I did not snap it off was because I wanted to know when it was midday (I sold my watches long ago, and the clock in my old car no longer works).
Does anyone not trapped in a traffic jam (or similar chaos) actually listen to Radio 4 any more?
There were compensations today, though. At one point, a stag, not large but with impressive antlers, crossed the road not far ahead of me. Fallow deer.
Still, despite that pleasant reminder of the animal kingdom, I had time to wonder why nothing seems to work in England any more, and why everyday life seems to have become unnecessarily complicated.
A sneak has reported the radio presenter James Naughtie to the police for drink-driving. Read the above report.
The facts were that said sneak observed Naughtie downing a glass of Chardonnay, and even went into the pub garden to watch him, before reporting the matter to the police (and taking a picture of Naughtie’s car).
Naughtie was then confronted at his home (or one of them), and blew a mark of 35, which would be borderline in England, where the limit is 35 (and would have been below the legal limit by the time a court-admissible sample was taken at a police station), but is well above the legal limit in Scotland, where that limit is 22.
Now I would not complain about this had Naughtie (or anyone in that situation) been plainly legless, but the man had only had one or two glasses of wine!
Time was when (in both England and Scotland, I think) the sneak was despised rather than admired. That was then. Now there are a whole host of petty sneaks and denouncers all too ready to, as the Australians now apparently say, “dob someone in”.
You see it all the time on Twitter and other social media platforms, the denouncers (often, though not always, Jewish), whose whole life seems to revolve around “reporting” people to (say) Twitter, or to employers, or to professional organizations, or even to the police. Pathetic.
Incidentally, I do not make the above points because I am a drink-driver. I can probably count on one hand the number of times (over about 25 years) when I have driven —probably— over the local limit; at least three of those times would have been in the Caribbean, maybe once or twice in the UK. In fact, I rarely drink (even one glass) and drive now, so I am not pleading in my own interest at all; I just despise the “informer” type.
Final point: I never liked Naughtie’s radio persona or views much, so I have not written the above because I favour Naughtie himself.
Yet the mask zealots rule supreme on Twitter (though not in the real world). Many are are still pushing for renewed facemask nonsense, the plainly not very effective vaccinations, strict social distancing etc etc. It makes me wonder, not for the first time, whether there is not a psychological basis for their zealotry and unwillingness to move on. Many are also the hardcore “rejoin EU” types, such as those “FBPE” idiots you see on Twitter.
Off the Cluff
Memoirs of oil and publishing (etc) tycoon, Algy Cluff. The book looks interesting, but seems to be unavailable on Amazon, despite having an entry on that site. Is that because the Foreword is written by Taki, who is a bete noire of both the “woke” and the Jews? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taki_Theodoracopulos. Maybe, though, it is because there has been too heavy a demand; the book is not on retail sale until next week.
While Tang’s businesses are or were not the sort of places I usually frequent (I do not really like to shop anyway), I have in fact been to what was his flagship Hong Kong store, Shanghai Tang, in 2006.
I was in Hong Kong, getting some suits, jackets, shirts etc made at the famous Sam’s Tailor [https://www.samstailor.com/— I recall talking, about racing, mainly, to the present owner, whose photos are on the website, and who is the son of the one who was the owner in 2006].
Among the many items (all custom-made/bespoke) I bought was a very nice Chinese dark blue silk dressing gown with Chinese symbols on it. I asked if I could have made a similar but rather smaller one in another colour for my wife, as a present. They demurred because they would be unable to measure her (I was in HK alone). They were quite firm about it, even after I pressed them, so I asked where I might get one for her. They said Shanghai Tang. I went there.
Well, I did find a suitable but ready-to-wear dressing gown for my wife, and it was actually far better quality than my (still good) one from Sam’s Tailor. It was also far more expensive— about 15x the cost, in fact. That’s life…
I hope that I shall be able to read Cluff’s book; it sounds like it might be an interesting read. Apparently, Tang once tipped a waiter at a casino USD $90,000! Talk about playing the big shot!
Late film travelogue
A 1930s Agfa-colour film showing Berlin at the time of the 1936 Olympics, suggested by one of the regular readers of this blog:
Only three years into the currency of the NSDAP government! Imagine that! Boris-idiot has been (posing as) Prime Minister of the UK for nearly as long, and the Conservative party has been in office in the UK for some 11.5 years…
Another similar film?
In this case, not colour film, but more recently colourized.
More? In the following case, not moving pictures but some still colour and b&w photographs.
Pity about the repetitive soundtrack of that one, though.
