Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

We will remember them.

On this day a year ago

It makes one shudder to think what those who fought in either of the great European wars would think of society now, though not all changes have been negative, by any means; however, the destruction (presently ongoing) of European race and culture, plotted and executed by those in political power, and who should be defending Europe, overshadows all else.

Tweets and comment about “Jack Monroe”, aka the “Bootstrap Cook”

About 6 weeks ago, I blogged about the storm around “Jack Monroe”, aka “the Bootstrap Cook”, which storm had been raging on Twitter, Facebook, Tattle and elsewhere since sometime in August of this year. It continues unabated.

There now seem to be two clear groups: the supporters of “Bootstrap Cook”, most of whom seem to be politically-correct, wilfully-blind, Guardian/Observer readers, few if any of whom are in any way “poor” or “struggling”; on the other hand, there are those (many of whom are former supporters) who are critical of “Jack Monroe, accusing her of “grifting”, near-fraud if not actual fraud, as well as lying constantly about her life, her background, her history, her financial position etc. They also make the point that many of her recipes (if they are even that, as in her “soup” made from pulverized frozen beefburgers and some stock, or her “boil an egg and spread it on buttered bread”) are either not recipes at all or, equally-often, heavily-carbohydrate offerings, short on vitamins, minerals, and even calories.

Which of those two groups am I in? I started off, several years ago, vaguely noticing the “Bootstrap Cook” as something or someone more positive than not, “helping” the struggling and those penalized by the evil machinations of Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, George Osborne etc.

Over time, I have become more and more critical, as guided by the facts that have emerged. Now, I should say that I think “Jack Monroe” is someone with many personal or mental problems but who has certainly also been taking the pathetic journalists of the UK, and many others, for a ride, and making a pretty good and not very honest living from it all.

I am not a psychiatrist, so cannot fully explain why no less than 664 very silly and/or misled people (as of today) are paying Jack Monroe/Bootstrap Cook between £3.50 and £10 per month via the Patreon website; i.e. up to £6,640 a month in cash (minus Patreon fees etc), which might even be taxfree as “gifts” (not sure about that; it is a long long time since I was involved in any tax law).

In addition, some other (?) exceptionally silly people also send other, one-off donations to the alleged “grifter”/”fraudster” (who, inter alia, claims that a family of 4 can feed itself well for £20 a week by using her recipes).

In addition, Jack Monroe has 7 books in print, and is thus receiving royalties (£90,000+ in the past several years), and makes money in a number of other ways.

She has crowdfunded for an action in defamation against the —admittedly not very pleasant— MP, Lee Anderson [Con, Ashfield: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Anderson_(British_politician)], and politico/journalist Martin Daubney [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Daubney], but since the announcement of that in the msm and on Twitter in May 2022, it seems that no writ has been issued nor any pre-action correspondence received (info per Lee Anderson). It has been alleged that Jack Monroe has simply taken the money donated for the threatened libel action, and spent it. Whether that is so, I have no idea, but tend to believe it, in the absence of any proof that there is going to be an action launched (and time is shortening— only 5-6 months left, at maximum).

Tweets continue to be posted:

Exactly. Many of the “well-meaning” or bien-pensant pro-Jack Monroe tweeters (mostly though not all women) have invested emotional capital in “Bootstrap Cook”, and are therefore immune to logic or fact. They cannot admit that they have been and are being duped, and prefer to carry on paying £3.50 or £10 a month rather than face reality.

Note the poor literacy in that tweet from AFP, one of the largest international news agencies. Sign of the times.

If Putin cannot pull a rabbit out of the hat pretty soon, Russia will have some kind of “revolution” at some point not far down the line. Lost wars have had that result in Russia before. The only solution is not to lose the war…

When did woolly-head stop banging that stupid “ho”, Liz Truss?

A sign of things to come if the UK continues to slide down the slope into multikulti chaos?

Meanwhile, the pseudo-green “activists” think that punishing the British public is the way to go. I saw a clip from, I think, Sky News this morning. One Indigo Brumelow, a plainly very thick and “silver-spoon” young woman, completely hysterical.

She strikes me as mentally-afflicted in some way. I am no medic, but maybe autistic?

Potentially dangerous, like so many of the pseudo-green “activists”. Potentially terroristic. It is a question of degree only.

Actually, all the examples given by Indigo Rumbelow (floods in South Asia, hot weather in Europe etc) have occurred not only in recent decades but a hundred years and more ago.

I bet she will be pro-immigration as well. While living in the parents’ country house, or affluent suburbia (when not in a London flatshare), well away from the results of her pathetic yet damaging “activism”.

Indigo Brumelow thinks that women were “not allowed to own anything” until the Suffragettes agitated. Completely wrong, historically. She’s an ignoramus.

Will Indigo Brumelow end up in a mental hospital? She looks like a fanatical loony, and one who seems capable of any crime.

Ah. According to the Daily Mail:

Indigo was first arrested at Cannes Lions Advertising Festival in 2019 for gate-crashing a Facebook conference and has been held by police on at least six occasions since then.

In 2020 she began digging up the lawn in front of the Ministry for Housing Communities and Local Government and was arrested again in Parliament Square later that year when she blocked the road.

[Daily Mail]

The newspaper also says that she is based on the Gower Peninsula, in South Wales, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. No doubt the family home. She is 28. No mention of any profession, job, or even study. In other words, as guessed, a silver-spoon trustafarian, like so many of the Just Stop Oil and Extinction Rebellion idiots. Rote-learned repetitive ranting. No real thought at all.

Actually, she came over to me as mentally closer to 15 than 28. She evidently has some form of emotional/mental problem.

Were I Putin, I would arrange dictatorial powers for myself, then a. shoot most of the generals of the Russian Army; b. shoot many of the higher-ups in the GRU; c. bring up and train younger officers; d. find out where Zelensky is based and then fire a nuclear missile at his location.

Russia needs a gamechanger. What is now happening, and most of what has been happening from February onwards, has been a complete and embarrassing “shitshow”, causing huge property and infrastructure damage, huge harm to Ukrainian civilians and others, and to companion animals, and also resulting in 100,000 deaths and injuries to Russian officers and soldiers, let alone the devastating damage to Russia’s reputation in all ways.

Not that I opposed, or even now oppose, the invasion, but it was delayed pointlessly, for weeks, then carried out in a shockingly half-hearted, desultory, and almost detached manner. Shocking. As blogged before, this is not the army, or the equivalent of the (Soviet) army, that could and did take whole countries in days, among them Czechoslovakia and Afghanistan.

Putin seriously needs to get a grip, or give way to someone who can take firm control and achieve victory.

Interesting graphic

Interesting in several details, such as that 41% of Americans have never flown on a plane! I am also surprised to see that a third of American adults do not own a car.

Most telling, perhaps, is that only 62% of Americans have a household income over USD $25,000, meaning that 38% of households are struggling by on less than $25,000 a year.

When I married my first wife, a United States Federal Government employee, her own relatively modest income in 1990 was about $36,000, so an income of $25,000 in 2022, 32 years later, and for a household (that might contain two or more workers), is really what the American magazines call “hardscrabble”.

The educational levels are, as expected low, with the respondents apparently thinking that 30% of their fellow-Americans live in New York City (it’s 3%), 30% in Texas (it’s 9%) and 32% in California (it’s 12%).

An uninformed and/or ignorant population cannot support a democracy worth anything, hence the American political mess that we see unfolding, as Adlai Stevenson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adlai_Stevenson_II] implied pretty clearly when his campaign train was in a small town during a Presidential campaign of the 1950s. A woman ran up to him, crying out, “Mr. Stevenson, you must win! Every thinking American will vote for you!“, to which Stevenson drily and prophetically replied, “Not enough, Madam; I need a majority“…

I rather dread the sort of elected dictatorship that Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer might head, containing such as would-be dictator Yvette Cooper (expenses cheat, fraud, and another Labour Friends of Israel member), but Isabel Oakeshott is right— what is the point of the Conservative Party now? And look at the Cabinet! A real collection of deadheads.

The only thing that the Con Party can now say is “we are not Labour“. That might save their bacon to a (very) limited extent, but only to such a small extent.

As to that “elected dictatorship” of Labour, we shall just have to face it down any way we can.

UK approaching strategic economic decline

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/nov/02/the-uk-economy-is-about-to-be-thrown-into-a-black-hole-by-its-own-government.

Interesting analysis.

It fits the definition of madness to propose more austerity. But that, along with higher interest rates, is what’s coming.

Here’s the current state of the nation. The economy is going backwards. National output is lower than it was at the start of the pandemic. Property prices have started to fall. Households have started to increase the amount they save in anticipation of hard times ahead. Living standards are falling because wages are not keeping up with prices. Despite the government’s price cap, average energy bills are double what they were a year ago. Officials are “war-gaming” the possibility of week-long energy blackouts this winter. NHS England has more than 7 million people on its waiting lists. Food bank usage is soaring.

And what’s the response to this? Well, the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee is about to raise interest rates for an eighth meeting in a row, because it is worried that high inflation will set off a wage-price spiral. The City expects a 0.75 percentage-point increase to 3%, and a signal from Threadneedle Street of more to come. The Bank knows what it is doing will cause pain, but says that’s better than even more pain later.

If there was really such a thing as a fiscal black hole, it might be a good idea to fill it, but the idea that Britain is about to sucked into a vortex because it is running a budget deficit is a fairytale.

David Blanchflower, a member of the MPC during the global financial crisis, says the UK looks set to repeat the policy mistakes made back then – and his warning is timely. In September 2008, a month before Royal Bank of Scotland came within hours of running out of cash, the Bank was considering raising interest rates because it feared inflation would become embedded. The real threat, as Blanchflower pointed out at the time, was of a monster recession. Within months, official borrowing costs had been cut from 5% to a then record low of 0.5%.

The Treasury is living proof of the notion that insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting a different result. In 2010, just as the economy was starting to recover from the crash, George Osborne decided that the time was right to start hacking away at the budget deficit. Just as today, tax increases and spending cuts were deemed vital to keep the financial markets sweet.

An early critique of Osbornomics came from Ed Balls in August 2010, when he was pitching to become leader of the Labour party. Yes, Balls said, there needed to be a credible plan to reduce the budget deficit and the national debt, but only when the economy had fully recovered. By doing too much too soon, the coalition government was “undermining the very goals of market stability and deficit reduction which their policies are designed to achieve.”

Balls was making a straightforward Keynesian argument. JM Keynes did not believe in permanent budget deficits, and thought in good times that the state’s income should exceed its spending. But he was adamant that it was self-defeating to tighten policy during a downturn, as happened during the Great Depression. Doing so would make matters worse in every respect: slower growth, higher unemployment and a bigger deficit.

The same applies now, only more so. Things are worse than in 2010 because then, the Bank of England kept borrowing costs at rock-bottom levels while the Treasury imposed its austerity programme. Currently, both the Bank and the Treasury are tightening policy at the same time: a policy stance guaranteed to make the recession deeper and longer.

It is not just that unemployment and poverty will rise. Cuts to capital spending will mean more productivity-sapping delays on the country’s creaking infrastructure. The ill health that explains some of the absence of the over-50s from the labour force calls for more spending on the NHS. There is a case for lower taxes to stimulate investment, targeted at small and medium-sized businesses.

But even though it should be obvious that more austerity will make structural economic problems worse, the UK is firmly in the grip of a technocratic, economic orthodoxy that insists budgets must be balanced, inflation tamed and markets kept sweet. The consensus among the commentariat is that there is no real alternative to what the Bank and the Treasury are doing. Credibility is the priority.

This argument has been deployed before. It was used in 1925, when the consensus agreed there was no alternative to putting the pound back on the gold standard. It was used in 1990, when the consensus was that there was no alternative to joining the exchange rate mechanism. Eventually, the “no gain without pain” approach was seen to lack credibility, and abandoned. But only after immense damage was done.

[The Guardian]

I thought it worthwhile to copy/paste quite a lot of that Guardian analysis partly because the simplistic Mrs. Thatcher-style “housewife’s shopping basket” kind of economic discussion is all too widespread, both in the mass media and amid the public— State funds (and overall money in the country) thought of as gold coins in a large chest kept at the Treasury (no doubt monitored by “the King in his counting-house“, in the words of the nursery rhyme).

I have little time for Ed Balls as a politician (and still less for his ghastly wife, Yvette Cooper) but, as a trained economist, he was right a decade or so ago. The part-Jew George Osborne mortally wounded the UK’s economy via the 2010-2015 (really 2010-2020) “austerity” nonsense. The economy is still declining.

It is more than slightly interesting to see msm political commentators noting that, behind the removal of Liz Truss and woolly-head Kwarteng, and behind the Rishi Sunak government, George Osborne has been both active and influential.

Still, politically, and from the standpoint of social-nationalism, the conditions likely to be engendered by these crazy policies may promote an upsurge which might turn into a real national revolution. It’s getting to the point where the UK desperately needs one.

The writer of the Guardian analysis above is one Larry Elliott [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Elliott], who also wrote, recently, this: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2022/oct/30/twitter-deal-may-signal-turning-point-when-the-everything-bubble-bursts. Also worth reading.

Migration-invasion

I saw another piece in the Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/nov/02/home-office-leaves-asylum-seekers-from-manston-stranded-in-central-london.

What struck me was that the 11 “stranded asylum-seekers” (migrant-invaders and/or illegal economic migrants) were not only released from actual Home Office/Border Force custody and taken to London, where “volunteers” from some charity spent £450 on clothing for them, but were then picked up by taxi at Home Office expense, driven all the way to Norwich (!) and checked into some hotel! Again, of course, at Home Office (Government/taxpayers’) expense.

I wonder what would happen were I to be (as I very nearly have been a few times in my life) homeless and penniless on the streets of London tomorrow. Would I be fitted-out at once by a charity? Would I then be driven across country in a taxi, before being placed in a Norwich hotel, at State expense? The very idea is ludicrous.

The migration invasion must be stopped and the invaders repatriated, expelled, got rid of…whatever. As to “our” government and the whole present system, it works against our interests and future… and should be toppled.

Of course, the problem is that (perhaps orchestrated on some level behind the scenes), the present “Conservative” chaos may lead in turn to a Labour Party “elected dictatorship” with new dictatorial legislation preventing discussion of anything racial or ethno-cultural, or of Jewish behavioural traits. There may even be “holocaust” “denial” laws, bearing in mind that Keir Starmer is married to a Jewish woman, that their children are being brought up as if fully-Jewish, and that Starmer is a fervent member of Labour Friends of Israel, as are all members of the present Shadow Cabinet.

If that happens, there may be only one way to fight the encroaching tyranny.

What nightmare is this?

When the British people work that out, watch out…

Comment unnecessary, I think…

Capital punishment

I have always been opposed to capital punishment, perhaps influenced by Dostoyevsky’s famous novel Crime and Punishment, in which the murderer, Raskolnikov, eventually admits his crime, and is sentenced to long years (I think 20 years) of imprisonment with hard labour in Siberia, ultimately emerging as a better man or, as Dostoyevsky either writes or implies, “redeemed“.

Maybe Dostoyevsky knew about such things, having been himself a prisoner, sentenced to death for plotting to kill the Tsar (he was eventually pardoned, though not before a mock execution had been carried out). I wonder though, whether even Dostoyevsky ever encountered the kind of evil depravity shown in a trial that finished today: see https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11386701/Mother-bodybuilder-partner-jailed-39-years-murder-15-year-old-son.html.

A thin small boy, tortured mercilessly by a bullying man and by his own mother.

Even 39 years minimum seems inadequate as punishment for such monstrous and seemingly inhuman (or subhuman) individuals, particularly when served in English prisons, some of which are unpleasant or even horrible but some not so bad; that last particularly applies to the women’s prison(s) where the depraved mother will be held. In brief, they will probably not suffer enough, especially the woman.

It is a big thing for me to say that perhaps, in some cases, the death penalty might be appropriate, after many many years of trying to argue for mercy —life— for persons convicted or murder (not in court— I was never much of a criminal practitioner, and was never on that level of criminal defence, though I nearly got one murder in the early 1990s).

I once argued, at dinner in Lincoln’s Inn, against capital punishment. Seated at table next to me, Lord Justice Parker took the opposite view. He seemed a rather unpleasant man, but he may have been at least partly right.

I wonder whether, in a rare case of the above sort, the death penalty might be appropriate. Not some semi-medicalized type such as the American lethal injection or gas, but something carried out in public, and with some element of movement in it— hanging, beheading by axe, or the guillotine.

Those awaiting such a fate would have to be given a little time to contemplate the awfulness of what would be about to happen to them; and, as said, the execution(s) should be in public.

Not nice thoughts. I think that I shall park such thoughts there and move on to something else. All the same, the murdered boy cries out for justice, and the murderers are not, as yet, punished according to the full measure of their deeds.

Late tweets

The charitable sector has been trashed over the years by several factors: the government subsidies paid to many charities; the tendency for the top few staff to be paid inordinate amounts, in some cases several hundred thousand pounds per year; the infiltration into important positions by “woke” or “politically correct” activists.

Ha. Yes, except that “holocaust” should always be lower case and in quotation marks if used in reference to the Jews and WW2.

This is what she tweeted:

I have already noted the “shuffling-off” of that person [see blog, earlier today].

Presumably, Rose (like the Bank of England) wants to choke off demand in order to suppress inflation. The danger, of course, is that, after the harsh medicine, you control inflation, yes, have sound money, yes, a “sound pound” if you like, but also have a pretty dead economy, high unemployment, and continuing recession. You might even get the recession as well as high inflation (“stagflation”).

The Home Office is already well and truly “invaded” in the lower ranks, and under (((control))) in the higher echelons…

The Untermensch’s Tale

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-11368907/PETER-HITCHENS-murderers.html.

When Freda Walker opened her back door to let her cat out one night last January, she let Hell into her home. It came in the form of Vasile Culea. He seems to have sneaked in while she was not looking.

Not long afterwards, he subjected Mrs Walker, 86, and her husband Ken, 88, to a night of merciless torture. He was a retired electrician and former district councillor. She was a retired seamstress. They had come through all those decades, and might have thought they were entitled to a peaceful final few years together. They did not live in some inner-city gang-infested zone, but in the kind of street and the kind of house that millions inhabit.

She was 5ft 2in tall and yet Culea, a fit young man, killed her.”

[Peter Hitchens in the Mail on Sunday].

I note, though, that Hitchens does not point out that the torturer and murderer, Vasile Culea, is a Roma Gypsy from Romania. Note— not “Romanian”, except in respect of his passport, but a member of that tribe first let into the UK in huge numbers under the Blair elected dictatorship.

Look at the photo in the article. Not European. The Roma Gypsies originated in India, many hundreds of years ago.

See also: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11365243/Romanian-killer-jailed-life-murdering-86-year-old-ex-mayors-wife.html; even the newspaper report of the untermensch’s sentence describes him, misleadingly, as “Romanian“.

The truth has to become acceptable again in the UK, whether it concerns Gypsies, Jews, the “holocaust” farrago or, indeed, English people (where they too need to be held to account).

I feel sorry for the real Romanians, who are constantly “tarred with the same brush” when the Roma Gypsies with Romanian passports commit crimes in the UK.

Liz Truss

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11368619/Liz-Trusss-personal-phone-hacked-Putins-spies-secret-details-negotiations.html

Liz Truss’s personal mobile phone was hacked by agents suspected of working for the Kremlin, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The cyber-spies are believed to have gained access to top-secret exchanges with key international partners as well as private conversations with her leading political ally, Kwasi Kwarteng.

One source said that the phone was so heavily compromised that it has now been placed in a locked safe inside a secure Government location.

A source with knowledge of the incident said yesterday that the security breach ‘caused absolute pandemonium – Boris was told immediately, and it was agreed with the Cabinet Secretary that there should be a total news blackout.

‘It is not a great look for the intelligence services if the Foreign Secretary’s phone can be so easily plundered for embarrassing personal messages by agents presumed to be working for Vladimir Putin’s Russia.’

[Daily Mail]

It has to be said that the UK’s intelligence and security services, perhaps particularly SIS [MI6], have been living off their hump, meaning a largely-undeserved reputation, for a very long time, along with the Monarchy, the Church of England, the Bar, the NHS, and the ancient universities, to name just a few of the more obvious “usual suspects”.

As to Liz Truss herself, I suspect (admittedly without much evidence) that, at some point, meaning prior to her becoming Prime Minister, she was getting banged by Kwasi Kwarteng.

Anyway, both Liz Truss and woolly-head are yesterday’s news now.

Indeed— paying for cross-Channel migrant-invaders (50,000+ in 2022 alone); useless and often hostile elements, some of which are actively dangerous, such as the 30% to 40% of them who are actually Albanian or Roma Gypsy criminals and not —even on the widest definition— “refugees”.

As for the triple lock on pensions, Indian, and (supposed) “clever boy” and money-juggler, Sunak, seems to believe of the “grey vote” that pensioner voters have no choice but to continue to vote Con as most have done (in overwhelming numbers) up to now. If he and Hunt really think “where can they go?“, they are very mistaken.

As blogged previously, the Conservative total vote is heavily-dependent on the “grey vote”:

The General Election 2019 was unusual inasmuch as the age-weighting was less than has been usual in recent years, mainly because huge numbers of usual Labour voters abstained; some voted Con but more abstained.

In other words, the Con Party is now, in 2022, likely to be even more dependent on those grey votes, meaning the votes of the 60+ age group.

You are talking about 16 million voters, give or take [https://www.statista.com/statistics/281208/population-of-the-england-by-age-group/]. The vast majority of the 60+ age group do vote.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_United_Kingdom_general_election#Voter_demographics]

In 2019, over 47 million people were registered to vote. About two-thirds did vote. In other words, about 32 million.

That means that the 60+ age group comprises nearly half of the actual (actually-voting) electorate. If that half either abstains or votes somewhere other than Con, the Con Party is toast.

This is more or less where the opinion polls now are:

According to Electoral Calculus [https://www.electoralcalculus.co.uk/userpoll.html], that would give Labour a stonking overall majority of 404 (527 seats), and leave the Conservative Party with only 30 seats (LibDem 17; SNP ~52). It would be ironic, and yet quite possible, were the 30 Con seats left to include both Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss.

The above prediction is based on 23% of the voters (the vast majority aged 60+) staying loyal to the Conservative Party. If only about a quarter of that 23% were to abstain, not even voting elsewhere, the Labour majority would rise to an even more absurd “elected dictatorship” level of 454 (552 seats), and the Conservative Party would be left with a mere 2 seats.

It would be even more deeply ironic were those 2 remaining Con seats to be those of Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss.

Sunak should think carefully before abandoning that Triple Lock. His sword may have two edges.

Liz Truss is a type of woman found widely not only in UK politics but also in law firms, barristers’ chambers, and commercial companies: someone not hugely intelligent but full of both ambition and unmerited self-confidence, and someone who, while not really any good at her job(s), plays internal or “office” politics to a “T”.

I have met dozens like Liz Truss.

“Conservative” greaseball Fraser Nelson seems to have missed the “elephant in the room”, namely that his wonderful multikulti Britain is also a Britain collapsing culturally, socially, and economically.

Not “Italy” but the expansionist NWO, in reality.

The armchair “I stand with Ukraine” and “Slava Ukraini” lot, “useful idiots” for the Kiev-based dictatorship of the Jew Zelensky and the New World Order [NWO], are promoting war, and are also being manipulated.

I wonder what their last thoughts would/will be, if/when Russian nuclear weapons incinerate them, their families and homes etc? Maybe “was it worth it?

Reassure“? Ha. So making Europe more of a target?

In days of yore, the old Soviet Union would have deployed Spetsnaz commandos to deal with at least some of such weapons on the ground. Whether Russia now even has such capabilities seems an open question.

That refers to Darya Dugina, Dugin’s daughter, killed by Ukrainian and/or Kiev-regime terrorists a few months ago.

One cannot see, as some simpletons did in the 1970s, the conflict in Northern Ireland as simply a kind of “national liberation struggle”. More a kind of several-hundred-years-old sectarian conflict between two populations, and mainly occurring in a relatively few areas of the province.

The methods of the IRA in the 1970s and 1980s particularly were brutal and callous. Despite some harsh measures on the part of the British and/or Northern Irish authorities, the sort of 1930s/1940s Soviet-style clearances that might have finished the whole problem were never used, nor ever even contemplated.

The British never really hit the IRA infrastructure as hard as they could have. Gerry Adams was, ludicrously, allowed to be notionally “on the dole” for many years, ferried around in one of the black taxis used extensively by the IRA. He and McGuinness and the like were never killed, their families never arrested, their properties never destroyed.

I think that it is clear that the British always favoured, at root, a nice polite Westminster-style “political solution”, even if that meant, strategically, giving in to Sinn Fein (and thus the IRA) in the long run (if only because the birth-rate of the “Republican”/Catholic population was higher than that of the “Loyalist”/Protestant population).

The same happened in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe, a country I myself visited in 1977. In 1979, the British played it their usual way, with a nice polite conference at Lancaster House in London (a rather nice small palace, of sorts, which I saw when invited to a couple of receptions in the 1990s).

The British used their intelligence services to bug the hotels of the delegates, and made sure no-one blew the place up. Emerging from that was the idea of a British-style “election” from which would inevitably emerge the winner, that nice, well-educated, little man, Robert Mugabe.

That’s how Britain has done these things since 1945— superficially slick, well-organized, without too much noise or violence in most cases (until the British have left), but in the end, a complete disaster. It started with Indian Partition in 1947.

The bombings etc carried out by the IRA were terrible. Having said that, they were not a tenth of one percent as deadly or as wounding (in bald numerical terms) as, say, the American bombings of countries such as Iraq in the past 30 years, and even smaller by proportion than the bombings in Germany, Japan, France, Romania etc carried out, mainly, by the British and Americans during the Second World War.

Anyone listening to System/Jew-Zionist-lobby pundits such as Dan Hodges is likely to be disappointed, at least most of the time.

I agree with the above, though. This is not now about a piece of Westminster Bubble theatricality, but about the fact that million upon million British people are now going to suffer terribly simply because stupid Liz Truss and woolly-head Kwarteng have been trying to play a performative game with the future of Britain.

If the last part of that tweet is right, we are well and truly ******…

Even so, need one take seriously most British “security and intelligence” sources? Those people have been wrong most of the time since 1945 (and, indeed, were for much of the 1939-45 period).

Mirabile dictu— I even find myself in agreement with sleazy Bryant this afternoon. Not that one need be a political genius to see the obvious truth of that tweet, of course.

If the Prime Minister (yes, even if it is Liz Truss) commits expressly to something, commits to it in the Chamber of the House of Commons, and in response to a direct question, that’s that…or else.

As I blogged yesterday, if the Triple Lock is not reinstated, then that is effectively the end of the Conservative Party, because the hard core of Con support consists of pensioners. If most of them abstain or vote elsewhere, the Conservative Party might really end up with a national vote of 10%, and that would leave them with 50-100 MPs, quite possibly at the bottom of that range.

The Conservative Party is polling around 20% or so. Take away half or three-quarters of that, and you are left with 5%-10%. Goodnight Vienna.

Exactly.

Lose/lose for the Conservative Party. Election now means about 50 Con Party MPs left (ironically, as blogged yesterday, probably including Liz Truss), but the only alternatives are to keep her as PM until the next general election, which might mean a near-total wipe-out, or to replace her as soon as possible, and then hope that at least a third to a half of the Con Party MPs can be saved, 100-175 of them.

Actually, it’s true: Liz Truss is a fighter, a noisy, aggressive, stupid, pointless woman used to pushing herself to the fore. Trouble is, once the silly bitch has forced herself to the front, there is almost literally nothing in her arsenal (intellectually or otherwise), and that is as true in the House of Commons as it is in any possible nuclear confrontation with Russia.

Will that be the next Liz Truss attempt to channel Thatcher and the Falklands? To try to create a “Falklands Factor” or “Belgrano Moment”? If so, a big mistake, and we may all be the victims of it. Russia is not Argentina, it has many thousands of nuclear weapons, many more advanced than our own few (most newspapers etc say the UK has 30-60, some claim 100).

Yes, it may be that Russia could only land 50 or 100 nuclear weapons on us. Is that OK? Do people think that anything much would be left?

Liz Truss is, apart from all her other faults, totally in the pocket of the Jew-Zionist and Israel lobby. She “proudly” said as much at the recent Conservative Party Conference, at the fringe event organized by the horrible “Conservative Friends of Israel” [“CFI”].

I posted, yesterday, Peter Oborne’s excellent analysis of the Truss/Kwarteng “government”:

That 9-minute exposition is a must-see.

I noticed that Oborne says that, over the past decade, the Conservative Party has been “captured” by “about four” groups, the primary one being “the super-rich“.

Another, interpenetrating, would be the Jew/Zionist/Israel lobby.

I agree. Generally, the aid monies stick to the aid “industry” itself, its executives, to corrupt governments and officials etc. Look at “Save the Children”: millions of pounds wasted on the salaries and expenses of sex pests and rapists such as Brendan Cox, the then husband of assassinated “Labour” MP, Jo Cox. I think that Brendan Cox alone was getting something like £300,000 (maybe £200,000 or so) a year, and he was not even the top boss!

If you want to help the poor of Asia or Africa or elsewhere, 9 times out of 10 your best bet is to just find a family and give money to them. No take-out, no bureaucracy; just a bit of money to help them get on.

There may be circumstances where a large-scale project can have good effects, but that is usually better done on the governmental level.

As for animal charities, better to find one which is directly doing good, such as those supported by the actor Peter Egan [A Perfect Spy etc]: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Egan#Animal_rights_activism.

Cut off all money, arms, and ammunition to the Jew-Zionist dictatorship in Kiev.

Incidentally, we read that Cole has “the best security and intelligence contacts” of all mainstream journalists in London. Maybe, but how can he check the veracity of what he is being told? What do his contacts want in exchange? What is their agenda?

We are living in unusual times. Historically, more money spent on defence meant more real security for the British people. Now, the reverse is the case. More money spent on defence may mean a greater chance of a nuclear attack on the UK, especially when billions of pounds are wasted on the Jew-Zionist regime in Kiev, which (((typically))) is alternately wheedling and demanding more from us daily.

At the same time, the Royal Navy cannot or will not even secure our shores from migration-invasion.

Wealthy Jew Peston may think that keeping the Triple Lock is a “car crash“, but Liz Truss and her fellow Con MPs know for certain that they are toast if it goes. I have blogged today and yesterday about it.

It is a simple calculation: with Triple Lock, the pensioners who are the core of Conservative electoral support will stay on board, most of them; without the Triple Lock, over half, maybe three-quarters, of the Conservative vote just evaporates, leaving the Conservative Party in an existential hole.

It may well be that international bankers prefer “austerity” for the British people, while parasites siphon off hundreds of billions, but the British people beg to differ.

When will idiots like Peston start working for the British people, and stop spouting System finance-capital propaganda?

You want to cut spending? Close down 90% of the Army, Navy, and Air Force, none of which are doing anything at all useful now. Also, stop sending money to arms manufacturers and to Kiev.

Interesting analysis

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/oct/19/uk-austerity-voters-brexit-cuts-chaos

 “After weeks of City chaos, and scoldings from Larry Summers and the IMF, even the most liberal and tofu-loving of commentators have bought into a dangerous idea: that you can never buck “the markets”.

Behind this mentality lies a whole mix of things, including the very understandable schadenfreude that comes with watching the Britannia Unchained lot find out that the markets don’t actually love them back. And who wouldn’t find joy in seeing the double-breasted, vacant-eyed, permanently post-prandial beetroots who between them make up the Conservative parliamentary party await an electoral tide that will sweep them out into generational oblivion? But the “markets know best” is not the lesson of the past few weeks, or the pandemic, or the bankers’ bailout before it. And believing so puts you on a collision course with voters.

You can see the result today: the UK is once again in the grip of austerity and anti-democratic politics – when we got into this crisis precisely because of austerity and democratic failure. The vast spending cuts made by George Osborne wrecked our hospitals, our schools and our town halls, and stoked the frustrations that ensured Brexit. I heard it over and over while reporting before the referendum – passersby declaring they were voting out, and citing as their reason nothing to do with Brussels and almost everything to do with the Tories. Their mum’s wait for an operation, their kids’ inability to get a council house, the loss of industry, the black hole left by privatisation: 40 years of bombed-out economics and bullshit politics.

To prove how far we have regressed, the politician who is once again everywhere is Osborne, easily the most ruinous Conservative minister this century. Others might name the layabout liar Boris Johnson or Truss the malfunctioning android, but it was Osborne who robbed Britain of a future. In the 2010s, interest rates hit rock-bottom and markets were practically screaming for governments to spend and invest. The UK could have rethought and rebuilt its post-crash economic model, but he chose to trample on the working poor and to cut, cut, cut. He is a big reason why Tory economics now has only two settings: cutting taxes for the rich, which never produces growth, or pursuing austerity that never brings prosperity.

Even today, Hunt is copying Osborne’s moves, right down to outsourcing politics to the financiers – just look at the newly installed panel of economic advisers, which comprises just two representatives of giant asset managers and two hedge-funders. Yet Jeremy cannot be George, because his role model cut public services so far there is nothing of substance left to take without them falling over. Now inflation is in double digits (unlike the prime minister’s approval ratings), it is devouring every Whitehall budget.

This is the UK’s horrific doom-loop, where voters are told the untenable is inevitable, while the sensibles keep mouthing stupidities and capitalists mirthlessly toast a cadaverous capitalism. Further downstream, surveys suggest over half (54%) of the 4m households on universal credit have gone without food in the last month, sick people in Wales can wait nearly two days inside an ambulance before getting admitted to A&E, and about 100,000 households each month are rolling off their mortgages into financial disaster.

Suella Braverman must be the shortest-serving Home Secretary ever. Like her predecessor, Priti Patel, another one of Indian origin, she talked a good game on migration invasion and immigration generally. Whether she would have been any more effective, I doubt. Anyway, that’s her gone as Home Secretary, gone as part of the Government, but not as MP: she scored over 63% of the vote last time, so has a safe seat even in these times.

Liz Truss made herself look like a complete fool when she met the Russian Foreign Minister, Lavrov. He totally outclassed her. In fact, she looked more like a stray visitor or uninformed heckler than a supposed equal to Lavrov. As people now say, “cringe-worthy”.

It’s not just about Liz Truss, though. The whole system and way of life in the UK is running out of road.

Liz Truss might have done better not to have shown her face in the Commons yesterday. She looked (literally) drugged; quiescent. Very strange.

She might be OK at a parish or small local council level, or maybe even at county council level, but she just cannot hack being a minister, or being a Cabinet minister, let alone a prime minister. It’s ludicrous.

Liz Truss became Prime Minister on 6 September 2022. If she can last until 6 November 2022, she gets the cash. 19 days from today.

Not a bad little earner“… especially when combined with her £84,000 MP salary, and continuing MP expenses payments, and whatever else the bitch has going on.

There are conditions, admittedly.

Ironically, South West Norfolk, her seat, is one of the safest the Conservative Party holds [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_West_Norfolk_(UK_Parliament_constituency)], so she herself may well, if not deselected, continue to be an MP even as literally hundreds of her MP colleagues go to the wall.

Once again, there are elements of Greek tragedy (and comedy) in all this.

I feel not a trace of sympathy for this stupid, over-promoted, self-publicizing bitch so typical of Parliament today. She has plunged this country into despair, and is now about to plunge many millions of British people into poverty and, in some cases, destitution.

She should be stamped upon. The same goes for woolly-head Kwarteng, “Boris”-idiot and many others. All the crazy so-called “free market” finance-capitalist pseudo-libertarians.

That piece by Peter Oborne is seriously worth watching. In fact, every single Conservative Party MP, ordinary member, and indeed ordinary voter, should watch it. Nine minutes of solid commonsense.

Russia needs a new start. It needs to free itself once and for all from Jew-Zionism, build a new society on a structural basis similar to the Rudolf Steiner concept, the Threefold Social Order, and bring far more equity and social justice into Russian society.

First, though, it has to beat the regime of the Jew Zelensky.

So good, I posted it twice.

Since 10 October, i.e. in the past week, 30% of the electrical power generating stations in territory held by the Kiev regime have been destroyed. This is the modern equivalent of a mediaeval siege, but on a wide geographical scale.

I cannot see “Western” (NWO) support for Zelensky’s regime continuing indefinitely.

Russia has to win this, or die, and it is clear that the gloves are coming off.

The first reference is to the rather unpleasant lawyer, Jolyon Maugham: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolyon_Maugham; the second to the supposed “poverty expert”, or “food poverty expert”, and recipe tweeter, “Jack Monroe”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Monroe.

I recently assessed the Monroe person for the blog: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/09/30/diary-blog-30-september-2022-including-an-assessment-of-jack-monroe-aka-the-bootstrap-cook/, my assessment following on from months of Twitter outrage seen about her and about how her life story and lifestyle somehow fail to add up. I suppose that the right word (and appropriately “Essex”) would be “dodgy”.

I should say that she has her defenders, people who seem to have elected her a kind of “Queen of Poverty Britain”. They themselves are very rarely poor, and many in fact seem rather comfortably-off. I question how many actually use her often very peculiar recipes. They seem to support her in a kind of unthinking way because she is perceived to be “anti-austerity” etc, though one could argue that saying (as she does, however absurdly) that someone can live on £5 a week, actually plays into the hands of such as Iain Dunce Duncan Smith and Therese Coffey.

All the same, Ms. Monroe has had published over half a dozen books and, apparently, has made £90,000 (and counting, continuing royalties taken into account) out of them. She also appears on TV shows, gives interviews etc

It seems to me that some people need a “hero” or “heroine”, even a fake one, and those people will shut their eyes to the seeming fact that they are perhaps being taken for a ride.

Many of her supporters also seem to like her “LGBTQXYZ” persona.

800+ people were apparently sending “Jack Monroe” between £3.50 and £44 a month via the Patreon donation website; about 700 still are, it seems (and the maximum suggested amount is now reduced to £10). Still, keeping with the Essex argot, “a nice little earner“, on the face of it.

The problem is or was that it seems that many of those donating received few if any of the items promised in return.

Search for “Jack Monroe” or “Bootstrap Cook” on Twitter, and you will see many of the arguments around her.

For myself, and as I wrote in that assessment, I do not think that she actually set out to defraud anyone, but she has obviously not delivered on her promises, as least to quite a few people.

As for the whole “eat well on 70p a day” idea, it just does not stack up. I am sure (well, it sounds plausible, anyway) that some of her recipes and ideas help some people. Far too many people in the UK live off takeaways and/or unnecessarily expensive packaged foods. However, no-one in the UK can live —even frugally— on less than about £3 a day for food (at minimum), and it is dishonest of someone with a public platform to suggest otherwise. £5 a week for food is certainly “for the birds”.

Some of her recipes are on such a level as “boil an egg, mash it up with mayonnaise, spread it on bread“. Similar to that, anyway. Well, thank you, Escoffier!

There again, the whole “Bootstrap Cook” thing was originally about how someone living off Britain’s pitifully-small basic State benefits could survive, and it is hard to maintain that ethos once you have thousands of pounds a month coming in on a regular basis, and tens of thousands in the bank.

Now, the Observer has actually given Ms. Monroe an award: see https://www.theguardian.com/food/2022/oct/16/i-tweeted-and-life-went-nuts-ofm-awards-2022-food-hero-jack-monroe. As the Guardian said, “voted for by Observer Food Monthly readers“.

I have never met anyone who reads the Observer who has not been affluent. (actually, one scarcely ever meets an Observer reader anyway, the newspaper has such a low circulation).

Anyway, you see my point— virtue-signallers. The sort of people who live in Blackheath, or Hampstead, or near Stroud, drive an SUV when not showing off on a bicycle, and read the Guardian and the Observer.

As said in the assessment, I have no particular animus against Ms. Monroe, and I do not regard her as a fraudster, more just as someone not entirely to be trusted, but I do not think that her contribution, such as it is, to the social or poverty debate in the UK, is at all useful in terms of policy.

I was blogging about that just a few days ago. I should put in for the job of Political Forecaster Laureate. A couple of hundred grand a year and the now-redundant lodge of Harry (Formerly Known As Prince) and the formerly “royal” Mulatta should suit, if Windsor Castle itself is not yet available.

Liz Truss is no longer publicly committed to defending the triple lock – the guarantee that the state pension will rise every year in line with inflation, earnings, or 2.5%, whichever is highest. In their 2019 manifesto the Conservatives said they would “keep the triple lock” and in interviews only two weeks ago, during the party conference, Truss confirmed that she was still “committed” to it.

Not any more. At the Downing Street lobby briefing after cabinet, the PM’s spokesperson refused to say that Truss still feels bound by this. He did not say it would definitely go, but he clearly signalled that it is up for negotiation.

[The Guardian]

As previously blogged, if the Triple Lock goes, the Conservative Party goes, probably forever. Sunak reneged, in 2021-2022, on the manifesto commitment to keep the Triple Lock. Result? Most (mostly 60+-y-o) Conservative Party members voted against him as Con leader. Sunak’s refusal to keep to the pledge cost him the Prime Ministership.

Only about 20%-25% of UK voters are now intending to vote Conservative next time, so say the opinion polls. That 20%-25% bloc is composed almost entirely of pensioners, and is the real hard core of the Conservative general election vote. Alienate that bloc, make them abstain or vote elsewhere, and the Conservative Party vote will collapse to 10% at top. Only a handful, or a few dozen, Con Party seats would remain. Ironically, as said earlier, one of the few left standing, like a pillar of salt, would be that of Liz Truss herself.

We therefore now know, for certain, that at least 40,000 members of the Conservative Party are so brainless that they should not be allowed out on the street alone (if they indeed are now).

A party in the UK stands or falls, more or less, as a party.

Look at this “shitshow“, to quote the open-mouthed Johnny Mercer. The Conservative Party was always admired for its ruthlessness in getting rid of unwanted leaders. Is it now falling short even in that?

Interesting Constitutional point too, that occurs to me: in principle, a general election need only be held within 5 years of the last one, so long as a prime minister can command the confidence of the House (Bagehot), so in principle Truss can be replaced by another Con MP who can rely on that large Con majority in the Commons. However, these circumstances of October 2022 are unusual.

Only the King can prorogue Parliament, and does so on the advice of the Prime Minister. What if Liz Truss refuses to vacate her office, and advises the King that she should remain, in circumstances where it is doubtful that she holds the confidence of even her own side? That might place the King in a very difficult Constitutional position: a choice between proroguing Parliament in effect on his own judgment and against PM’s advice, or not proroguing and then forcing the Commons to vote on confidence.

In such a circumstance, would the Conservative MPs vote “no confidence” in Liz Truss? That would mean a general election in which, on present polling, all but 50-150 out of 357 would lose their seats. Are they that altruistic? Most not, I think.

On the other hand, were those Con MPs to vote that they have confidence in Liz Truss, then no general election, but they would be stuck with her for at least a year, and possibly until the next general election, at least in my view. Awkward.

The new and as yet uncrowned King may find himself taking, or having to take, a far more active role in a party-political matter than he might prefer.

I did of course read Constitutional Law, at degree level, but would, naturally, not hold out myself as being in any way expert. Perhaps there are others, more erudite, who can solve the conundrum. If so, the comments section is open to the ocean.

Liz Truss is “charmless, graceless, brainless, and useless”, a former Conservative minister has said.”

Irony is dead…

Thought for the day?

A stupid “ho”, who only became an MP on her back, posing implausibly as “Prime Minister”, a woolly-headed n***** as Chancellor of the Exchequer, and moreover the latter —some say— banging the former…What could possibly go wrong?!

Now add to that a crazed and mediocre Indian barrister woman as Home Secretary, a useless half-caste as Foreign Secretary, and a drunken ex-Scots Guards junior officer as Defence Secretary.

Britain really is ready now for the Nuclear Age… as a target.

There comes a point, under any system, where the people are just being exploited and also led to disaster by the governing regime or political class. At that point, a vanguard of the people is entitled to use any methods to topple those exploiters and mis-rulers.

At present, an illegitimate “Conservative” government is (superficially) “opposed” by an Opposition which is anti-British and in fact not opposed to the really big Government policies. Look at “Labour”. Does it oppose Con policy on Ukraine, “Covid”, mass immigration etc? Not really. Tweaks and nuances only.

Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng

I have seen a few tweets to the effect that Liz Truss is or was getting banged —to put it colloquially— by Woolly-head Kwarteng. There have even been a few tweets from msm commentators implying it quite strongly. It may or may not be true. We know that Liz Truss was having an affair with influential then MP Mark Field about 15-20 years ago; she therefore, more or less, became an MP at least partly on her back.

As for Kwasi Kwarteng, until several years ago, he was in a personal relationship with unpleasant one-time MP and Cabinet minister, Amber Rudd. He then married a younger Amber Rudd lookalike.

Our political system is a bad joke, and those at the heart of it are of the same ilk.

Ideas on tax, economy etc

What would I do if I were in the seat(s) of power?

First of all, we need to give tax legitimacy in the eyes of the public. It may be simpler and more efficient to do it in the way that happens now, i.e. to get tax monies from different sources (income tax, VAT, “National Insurance” —very outdated and misleading—, road tax etc) and then allocate the money by government to various spending outflows, but that way of doing things distances the tax from the tax-payers.

I suggest that at least some tax revenues be ringfenced for specific purposes, so that, eg, a certain percentage goes specifically to the NHS or health and care overall. Likewise, road tax should go specifically to roads, or perhaps to transport (inc. rail) overall.

Maximum income and capital should be enforced. It might be that the maximum income allowed should be, net of income tax, about £200,000. As for capital, perhaps the permitted limit should be around £100M. I do not think that these measures could be claimed as dictatorial or extreme.

The same with land. In most of England, there should be a limit on acreage owned by one person or family. Perhaps 1,000 acres. In Scotland or Wales, perhaps 5,000 acres.

Again, scarcely “communistic”, in my view.

There is an argument that income tax should actually be abolished and replaced by variable-rate VAT and/or purchase taxes. Something that should be looked at by experts, anyway.

Basic Income must surely come, at least for those without other income above, say, £15,000 pa, even if the actual amount of Basic Income is only something like £10,000 or £15,000 a year. Again, specialists need to look at the topic in detail.

Companies doing business in the UK, such as Amazon, need to be paying a transaction tax, even if only 50p or £1 per transaction.

Just a few of the necessary measures.

Jeremy Hunt

Presentationally, looking at that, it seems to me that Hunt has placed himself in a solid position to replace Liz Truss, in that what Con Party has to try to do now is project a “grown up” and/or “stable” image, to detoxify the perception that a loony and ignorant woman and her woolly-haired African “friend” are running the UK into the ground.

Either Liz Truss becomes “the prisoner of Downing Street”, allowed less power than Larry the Cat, or she is just pushed out completely.

I am no pro-Hunt (or Conservative Party) partisan, obviously, but who looks more “Prime Ministerial”? Hunt (as seen above), or Liz Truss (as seen, eg, in her recent Press conference car crash)? Not even a question, really.

A WELSH Conservative MP has been described as “not credible” when giving evidence at his trial related to an early hours car crash which demolished a telegraph pole.

Jamie Wallis was convicted of three offences, but cleared of driving without due care and attention, in relation to the early hours crash last November when he was wearing a “black leather mini-skirt” and “high heels”.

The MP told the court he was transgender, said he had swerved to avoid a cat and left the scene because he had become “overwhelmed” by his recently diagnosed PTSD and felt vulnerable in women’s clothing – having been raped the last time he wore such an outfit publicly.

Convicting Wallis of the other three charges, – failing to stop, failing to report a road traffic collision and leaving a vehicle in a dangerous position – Judge Ikram said: “I am going to be upfront: I didn’t find the defendant credible in the evidence he gave.”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11323995/Biomedical-scientist-posted-women-cervix-Twitter-struck-tribunal.html

A retired biomedical scientist who posted ‘only women have a cervix’ has been booted from the profession after a tribunal ruled he was ‘inflaming gender discrimination’.

Blood expert Malcolm Needs was accused of uploading a string of social media posts that a disciplinary panel found were ‘seriously offensive and discreditable’

One of the now-deleted posts he was punished for sharing said: ‘Only women have a cervix. There, I said it, it’s not difficult. Women also have a right to women-only spaces. Speaking up in defence of women’s rights doesn’t mean we can’t respect how others wish to live their lives.’

While another added: ‘I Swear my head will explode if another person classes me as a “cis woman”. I am NOT a cis woman but I AM a woman. I have a cervix which no man can claim to have and biologically that will never change. I am not just tired of this insanity but I’m fed up of being labelled.’

The 67-year-old’s social media rants led to the former chief examiner in transfusion medicine for the Institute of Biomedical Science being struck off after a panel found his posts ‘seriously offensive and discreditable’. 

But a defiant Needs refused to attend the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service (HCPTS) disciplinary hearing. 

‘How many times do I have to tell you that I want NOTHING to do with your Kangaroo Court, and that, if I get one or email about this, I will take legal advice about harassment,’ he told the panel. 

…the pension [sic] targeted migrants crossing the Channel, tweeting: ‘And make them pay, like they paid the people smugglers to come over in the first place, and give our own taxpayers a rest”, while sharing an image stating, ‘Putting illegal immigrants up in 5* hotels has saved the hotel industry. So let’s save the airline industry by flying the f***ers back home!!”. 

The committee also found that Needs’ Twitter activity was ‘dismissive and offensive towards black people’ – citing a tweet stating that ‘Multiculturalism destroys culture’, which the panel found to be ‘inflammatory, divisive and prejudiced’.

Another post, which asked if there is ‘ANYTHING that is not racist?’, was found to intentionally ‘inflame a controversial and heated situation’.

Needs, now of South Devon, ‘voluntarily absented himself’ from the disciplinary hearing by sending an email telling the tribunal that he was ‘happily retired’.

Deciding to strike him off, the tribunal said that there had been no evidence of ‘any remorse, reflection or remediation’ on Needs’ part, and there remained a high risk of repetition.

[Daily Mail]

Note the Daily Mail monkey’s (“journalist’s”) semi-literate Sun-speak: spelling errors, hyperbole, and pejorative language (perfectly OK comments described as “rants” etc).

My own experience, in 2016, of having been similarly targeted, in my case by [a fanatical small part of] the Jew-Zionist element:

Incidentally, the comments of Daily Mail readers are entirely supportive of Mr. Needs.

I have more that I should like to write about the case reported upon, but think that I shall keep my powder dry, for now.

I think that the sneak who, in Stasi “inoffizielle Mitarbeiter” style, denounced Mr. Needs to the “kangaroo court” tribunal and/or regulator, should himself have his identity exposed.

Saturday quiz

Well, this week a clear victory over political journalist John Rentoul. I trumped his 3/10 with 7/10, albeit that I guessed a couple. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 7, and 8.

Liz Truss

A lot of bamboozled people think that Indians such as Priti Patel or Suella Braverman want to reduce migration-invasion and/or mass immigration. I see no evidence of it beyond empty words and empty gestures.

The System MP drones serve the Coudenhove-Kalergi agenda: https://vk.com/@judi1964-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-stealth-genocide-against-the-peoples; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalergi_Plan.

The system of selecting candidates and getting them (supposedly) “elected” as MPs, then ministers, then Prime Minister, is at fault. Anyone with real ideas has little chance; anyone opposed to the Jew-Zionist supremacist agenda/conspiracy is quickly weeded out.

The result is that the Liz Truss’s, the Theresa Coffeys, the Kwasi Kwartengs, the James Cleverlys, the “Boris”-idiots, the Theresa Mays, the David Cameron-Levitas become MPs, ministers, even Prime Minister, despite obvious lack of ability.

Surprisingly, a tiny number of tweeters are still tweeting in the Liz Truss interest, even as the vultures circle overhead:

I have been unable to verify the latter comment, but it is true that Wikipedia does not mention the class of degree obtained by Liz Truss, which I somehow think it would if she had obtained a First, or even a Second.

Not that the level of degree matters hugely anyway: plenty of idiots actually get “good” degrees, especially those who, like Liz Truss, were at university since the great dumbing-down and award-inflation (i.e. since the early 1990s). However, if it is true that Truss got only a Pass degree at a time when awards were already being inflated (she graduated in 1996), then that is certainly unimpressive.

As a matter of fact, Liz Truss did not have, as tweeter @habib_jenny” claims, “20 years of financial dealing” prior to becoming an MP (an accomplishment achieved at least partly on her back). She was employed in business for only 9 years, at least 5 of which she spent at a junior or very junior level.

What about her chances of surviving as Prime Minister? Almost zero, but the fact is that to remove her by force, i.e. to compel her to go, there would have to be a change in the rules pertaining to no-confidence votes in the 1922 Committee, then a period during which MPs can send in no-confidence letters, then a vote. In theory, I suppose that that could all be accomplished within a week, if they pushed it.

The talk now seems to be that MPs would want to change the 1922 Committee rules, cutting out of the election the party’s rank-and-file members (mostly elderly, mostly comfortably-off or affluent). The membership consists of about 172,000 persons. Liz Truss was elected by about 81,000 of those who voted (about 4/5ths of the members voted).

Cutting out the ordinary members would have several results, one of which would be that MPs could install whomsoever they like, without having to think about whether that candidate might be acceptable to the rank-and-file membership. So probably someone that the MPs like and who might be (thought) acceptable to UK voters as a whole, rather than to the narrow electorate of elderly and unrepresentative Con Party members.

I imagine that, if Jeremy Hunt were to become Con Party leader, he would present (rightly or wrongly) a less threatening face to the UK voters. On the other hand, it may be that the aim is to install a non-white, as I have blogged recently, in which case it might be Sunak. There might even be a false choice presented: Sunak and another non-white (surely not loony Ayn Rand devotee and Pakistani pro-Israel fanatic, Sajid Javid?).

In the interim, if Liz Truss is removed soon, and before a new leader is installed, I suppose that “Deputy Prime Minister” Therese Coffey might become interim Prime Minister, which would sink the Conservative Party permanently, in my view: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/16/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-therese-coffey-story/.

Any new leader of the Con Party will be perceived as having no popular mandate whatever, just as Liz Truss has no mandate. However, will that new leader want to call a general election when public “voting intention” is running as low as 19% re. Conservatives? That might mean that the only Con Party MPs that survived would be in the most heavily or hard-core non-marginal seats. That might be as few as 100. Labour might take many seats in the North, with the LibDems taking many in the South, speaking broadly.

What if Liz Truss herself were to call a general election, either out of spite or to go out in a blaze of (?) glory, rather than be booted out by her own MPs as useless after only about 6 weeks? She might just do that.

More likely, she will resign, with the promise that she will be elevated to the House of Lords later.

The next leader of the Con Party, and thus Prime Minister, might decide that general election prospects now are so hopeless for the Con Party that the situation could get no worse even if a general election were to be held at the last minute, in November or December 2024. Indeed, a lot can happen in 2 years. The Con Party might still lose the election, but not so badly, arguably. It might be left with 200 MPs, instead of 100, or 50.

Who knows what might happen to put people off Labour-label in 2023 or 2024?

It is clear that Liz Truss is toast.

I blogged, not long after she became Con Party leader and Prime Minister, that I would be surprised if she made it to Christmas, and astonished if she were still Prime Minister by Easter 2023.

Give that man a cee-gar!

Many many prominent MPs are over-estimated, not just Liz Truss. “Boris”-idiot, to give one now-obvious example, has been critically tweeted and blogged about for years— by me.

When you have run out of ammunition, pray harder.

A moot point, but it is clear that the electoral system entrenches the present basically binary choice between two parties whose underlying bases are not as far apart as many imagine.

[Therese Coffey, Deputy Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Health]

To state the very obvious, there have been a few changes since 1982. Russia in 2022 is not the Soviet Union in 1982. As the Ukraine situation has surely proven, Russia now not only has not the expansionist Marxist-Leninist ideology of the Soviet Union in 1982 (however cynically-held), but also has an Army much weakened in most respects since then. Civilian, as well as military, discipline is now weak in Russia.

Actually, that cartoon sparked a few memories. In 1982, the Trans-Siberian to Europe pipeline, the subject of the cartoon, was being constructed.

In 1982, I happened to know a recent Soviet exile in London, the 40+-year-old dumped boyfriend of a (ghastly) friend of my then girlfriend, who got work doing technical translation for a company involved in the project. It improved his lifestyle. He was able to fill up the tank of his battered old West German car (somehow acquired during his stay in Munich), instead of putting in half a gallon at a time. He was able to buy delicacies such as cheese infused with port, and specialist Lapsang Souchong tea, instead of living for days on a year-old pack of “noodles” (pasta). He was even able to find a place to live (he suddenly disappeared from view).

Forty years ago. What can one say? The massive changes brought in by the change in the 33-year cycle (from 1989) have altered more than the East-West confrontation. Socialism collapsed from 1989, and the technical changes since then have also altered society in the West, especially: Internet, social media etc. Also, the then power of the Arab/Islamic world, based on the oil/gas market and OPEC, has greatly waned, for several reasons.

Now we are in the next most significant year. What will 2055 look like? I myself will never know (while on this Earth), having been born in yet another very significant year— 1956. In other words, in 2055 I would be 99 or 100 years old, were I to live that long (unlikely).

Alarming, but also very exciting. This could be the moment, not far off, when real social nationalism, on a pan-European basis, could take off, but only if there is a movement at core ready and waiting for that right and historic moment.

The UK has no social-national movement, nor even any ideologically-sound and disciplined party or tendency, however small, capable of forming the vanguard of a mass movement.

My fear is that the social-national-revolutionary moment may arrive, only to find no, or no suitable, vehicle waiting to ride it to victory.

Look at that. A product of Oxford University and the UK’s Jew-Zionist controlled and/or heavily-influenced “democratic” selection and election process. Look at it…

Incidentally, if whatever now emerges as a “government” of this poor country wants to cut its spending, it can start by cutting off all money, arms, ammunition and other aid wasted on the Jew Zelensky and his evil and dictatorial regime in Kiev.

I wonder. The Conservative Party Conference 2022 looked more grey than gay. What struck me was how small was the gathering, as well as elderly. From photos I saw, at least, there were even fewer young people than in previous years.

Very corrupt. I once heard —from a source thought reliable— that a very odd and unpleasant man (whom I actually met a few times in London in the late 1990s, an American, and who had and I think still has small offices in both Kiev and London), would pay Ukrainian girls of 16 to walk, naked except for stiletto-heeled shoes, on his back. The individual concerned was, at the time, in his forties, and had a daughter of similar age. He was very tied up with Ukrainian government people, and perhaps still is.

Sweden has fallen. At this point, it may be better if most of it ceased to exist.

I was just looking at that blog post from a year ago. As usual, quite a few tweeters quoted have had their Twitter accounts removed in the intervening year, the result of the burgeoning censorship on Twitter and particularly in the UK.

Apart from that, a few comments of mine have aged well, if I myself say so:

The endless “lockdowns” are a way of disguising what is really happening, i.e. the shutdown of large parts of the Western world for other reasons. It has to do with the promotion of the Pacific Rim (especially China) and North America (regardless of surface hostility). It is also connected with the next 33-year cycle starting in 2022. NWO/ZOG.

In the same way, if the NHS and care system for the elderly is wound down and underfunded, the excuse is now “it’s because of Covid”. Of course it is…

I have always said that, however inadequate, unpleasant or incompetent the person who holds the office of Prime Minister, there remains the concept of respect for that office as occupied by that person.

Unfortunately, the above idealistic idea has been pretty well tested to destruction over the past decade. David Cameron-Levita and Theresa May damaged the concept by their incompetence, but worse damage has been done since, under “Boris” Johnson and now Liz Truss.

Hard to believe that the office of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, once occupied by, inter alia, Pitt, Peel, Gladstone, Lloyd George, Churchill, Attlee, Macmillan, Harold Wilson, Heath, Thatcher etc could in recent years be occupied by a part-Jew Levantine chancer such as “Boris” Johnson or, now, a woman who became an MP mainly on her back, and who has become Prime Minister via “a series of unfortunate events”.

Not that the prime ministers of history were unalloyed good news. Even the grandest or most solid of them were often, arguably, flawed or plain wrong ideologically or in terms of decisions made. None of those I have cited, though, looked completely out of place, or ludicrously over-promoted to their office. That is where we now are.

I see that my prediction, on her first day or so in office, that Liz Truss would probably not last beyond Easter 2023 or even, perhaps, Christmas 2022, is now echoed by msm commentators, Conservative Party MPs etc. Always the Cassandra…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassandra].

A thought out of season

As we know, the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan [https://vk.com/@judi1964-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-stealth-genocide-against-the-peoples; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalergi_Plan] provides for importation of vast numbers of “blacks and browns” into Europe, including the UK, with the aim that those immigrants and/or their offspring will mate with whites (especially black men with white women, as seen in the propaganda presented as TV drama, “soaps”, TV ads etc) and resulting, ultimately, in a so-called “coffee-coloured” population easily ruled and manipulated by a Jewish or mixed Jew/White European element. As with —among many many others— “Boris” Johnson, Theresa May, David Cameron-Levita, George Osborne, Zac Goldsmith, the Rothschilds etc.

We have seen recently the attempt to make the entire highest level of government, the Cabinet, non-white. The apex of that would to instal a non-white as Prime Minister. That, of course, would rub the nose of the British people in the dust of their subjugation by Jews and (other) non-whites.

I believe that the System tried to install ex-Goldman Sachs employee and ultra-wealthy Indian, Rishi Sunak, as Prime Minister. The power elite probably believed that, given a choice between Sunak, with his seeming intelligence and Winchester College education on the one side, and obviously ignorant and silly Liz Truss on the other, the rank-and-file members of the Conservative Party would inevitably choose Sunak.

It must have been a shock to the conspirators when it turned out that 57.4% of those mostly elderly members of the Conservative Party had actually voted for Liz Truss.

What sank Sunak was not one factor but several, among which the most important were probably his vast wealth (married to the daughter of the richest Indian in India) and therefore perceived inability to understand “the people”, his dark skin and ethnic origin and, last but not least, the fact that Sunak had reneged on the Con Party pledge to retain the State Pension “triple lock”, most of the members of the Conservative Party being pensioners.

For the conspiracy, the election of Liz Truss presented a problem.

Problem: how to install Sunak despite his having lost the party election.

Solution: depose Liz Truss, who in any case obviously has no ability or proper competence.

Method: immediately seize any chances given to make her evident incompetence seem even worse by creating a storm around her both economically and politically.

Not that I favour Liz Truss. She should never have become more than a backbench MP, if that. The same goes for her Cabinet members.

Once a society starts with that kind of nonsense, there is no end to it until a supervening power steps in. However, one amusing aspect is that “the revolution devours its own children” quite often.

That whole “no platform” stuff was invented by the precursors of the “antifa” element, and behind that is the Jewish element, as one sees with the Jewish organizations “Hope not Hate”, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” etc. If someone they, er, hate is going to speak somewhere, they organize a campaign by Jews and/or “useful idiots” (“antifascists”, stupid and manipulated students, black activists etc), and venue managements get letters, emails, telephone calls etc demanding that the event be cancelled, and so on. David Icke is but one example.

Ha. See blog, above.

What protected Liz Truss up to now (or very recently, anyway) from being exposed as a horrible person who is also completely incompetent? Her very obscurity, I suppose.

Part of the problem with Liz Truss is that she has been trying to copy the “Margaret Thatcher”, ideologically-driven, “conviction politician”, but without actually being one.

She has no real ideology, no real convictions, just empty ambition. She has plotted and planned and strived, and finally reached the prize of her political career, only to see it turn to ashes in her hands. Greek tragedy territory.

Well, that was quick. Only hours ago, woolly-head was saying “I’m going nowhere“, and now he has been dismissed with a kick to the ****.

So now the question is, will Liz Truss follow woolly-head into the wilderness, or will she try to cling on? Her character (careerist, chancer, unprincipled) would seem to suggest the latter, but it may be that she will be induced to stand down “for the good of Country and Party” or some such formula.

That, of course, would imply a general election, but Conservative MPs might try, one more time, to pick a winner in the 2 years left of the Parliament. If a general election were to be held now or soon, it might just be the end of the Conservative Party as it has been for the past century or more; the party reduced to a few dozen MPs.

Liz Truss has scarcely had time to enjoy the more private fruits of being PM, such as weekends at Chequers.

One might characterize the situation as Liz Truss “resigning with honour”, though that scarcely hits the spot, as against being forced out. She might well decide to fight to stay on, thinking that she has nothing to lose (and don’t think that, for her, this is about anything other than her own personal interests— a characteristic she shares with “Boris”-idiot.

I was interested to read that Macron has made it clear that France will never use nuclear weapons except as retaliation for a direct attack on France.

Macron may just have saved la belle France from nuclear annihilation.

The role of France in European culture is to preserve it. I therefore applaud the attitude displayed, i.e. not to get dragged into the Russia-Ukraine war.

Naturally the French police and DST (or whatever it is now called) will be aware. The French want migrant-invaders out of France, so if that means aiding them to invade the UK…

Long before the present migration-invasion crisis, when I was in Calais waiting for a ferry, in 2000, I had a drink near the hotel de ville, and asked the bar owner about the migrants (few in number, and just being reported on at that time). He said “we do not mind. They do not stay long. They all want to go to England“. There it is…

Well, he has a point…

Scheisse. I had not considered that… https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/09/16/deadhead-mps-an-occasional-series-the-therese-coffey-story/.

Looks like my prediction from a month or so ago will be fulfilled.

Liz Truss and woolly-head Kwarteng will kill their own party

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/oct/12/one-in-five-families-in-liz-trusss-seat-would-lose-out-under-real-term-benefit-cuts

At least one in five working-age families in most UK constituencies – including in Liz Truss’s seat – would lose out by hundreds of pounds on average if real-terms benefit cuts go ahead, a study has found.

The scale of the impact of a below-inflation rise on already struggling households and by extension, local shops and businesses, is revealed in a study by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF). It would amount to the biggest-ever real terms cut to benefits in a single year.

The findings will increase pressure on the prime minister to stick to promises made by her predecessor, Boris Johnson, to guarantee benefits would rise next April in line with September inflation – about 10% – rather than by the rise in earnings figure of 6%. This real-terms cut would deliver around £5bn in savings to the Treasury.

Dozens of backbench Tory MPs are understood to be prepared to rebel over real-terms benefits cuts, while a number of cabinet ministers – including Penny Mordaunt and Robert Buckland – have also signalled their opposition.

The JRF analysis shows seven out of 10 MPs represent areas where at least 20% of households are reliant on universal credit and other means-tested benefits. These include 193 Conservative seats, including a number of key marginals where over a third of working-age families would be affected by a cut.

“Politicians should think long and hard about the impact of withholding hundreds of pounds from thousands of families in their constituencies when the basic rate of benefits is already at its lowest in real terms for 40 years and prices are sky-high,” said Katie Schmuecker, JRF’s principal policy adviser

Families in ”red wall” seats in one-time Labour strongholds taken by the Conservatives at the last general election would be particularly badly affected by real-term benefit cuts. They include Blackpool South, where nearly half (46%) of households stand to lose out, Burnley (38%), and Redcar (33%).

The JRF analysis shows that even in the most affluent constituencies at least one in 10 households are on means-tested benefits.

Most Conservative Party MPs voting for the proposed measures will be turkeys voting for Christmas.

A former academic at University College London must pay almost £50,000 in damages to a former colleague after falsely portraying her as a sex worker on social media as part of a months-long campaign of harassment.

Christopher Backhouse, a former research fellow at the department of physics and astronomy at UCL, has settled to pay £49,975 to Erica Smith, a physicist and a postdoctoral fellow at Indiana University in the US.

Backhouse was revealed as the perpetrator after Smith enlisted a US lawyer to subpoena Twitter and Google. Documents from the tech giants identified an IP address in London, despite great lengths by the perpetrator to cover their tracks using global proxy servers, the court heard.

Using a Norwich Pharmacal Order (NPO) against BT, a disclosure order allowing information to be obtained from third parties, Backhouse was revealed as the customer connected with the London IP address.”

Therese Coffey

Deadhead MP and now, absurdly, Deputy Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Health, Therese Coffey, still attracting critical and/or incredulous tweets:

[Britain’s Deputy Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Health, Therese Coffey]

It is shaming for Britain to be represented by such as stupidly ignorant “ho” Liz Truss, ugly, nasty moneygrubbing drunk Therese Coffey, woolly-head Kwarteng, and ignorant half-caste James Cleverly.

The present Cabinet has no legitimacy.

The question is how to get rid of them.

It will be recalled that Derbyshire Police (one of the worst-performing forces in the UK) was instrumental in the Jew-Zionist campaign against satirist Alison Chabloz, and its Police and Crime Commissioner at the time (removed in 2021) was a Labour Party drone, a Sikh, who was basically suborned some years ago by the malicious small pressure group called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”].

Derbyshire Police was also one of the worst police forces involved in illegal bullying of the public during the “panicdemic” of 2020-2021.

Talking about the police and their slide into becoming a pathetic poundland KGB, what about this, below?

The ridiculous little twerp of a policeman shown is indeed, as the tweeter writes, egregious in his behaviour.

Incidentally, here is an article about one of my own encounters with the thin (or should that be “thick”?) blue line, from about a year ago (put on the blog in January 2022) : https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/15/diary-blog-15-january-2022-including-an-outline-of-the-failure-of-the-latest-jew-zionist-attempt-to-prosecute-me/.

“Labour” is now just a label. In fact, one of Labour’s least impressive MPs, the unpleasant self-publicist Jess Phillips, said a few years ago that it was “just a f****** rose” (a reference to its symbol).

Labour is riding high in the opinion polls now by default, the Conservative Party having all but imploded, but Labour, in itself, is every bit as rubbish as the Conservative Party.

Both main parties are just one System, really.

A “coup” launched by Jews, and doormats of the Jewish lobby; Lisa Nandy being one of the latter.

134,000. At ~4 persons per family, that works out at about 35,000 homes required. Homes which should be going to British people.
