Kirklees Council is within the Batley and Spen constituency area: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirklees_Council. Labour has a plurality though not a majority of councillors (32 out of 69). The Mayor? One “Mumtaz Hussein”. Leader of the Council? “Shabir Pandor”. The Deputy Leader is Peter McBride.

“Shortly after the 2016 local elections, Labour councillors initially decided to replace incumbent council leader David Sheard with Shabir Pandor…Pandor eventually resigned as Labour group leader. Sheard was re-elected as leader of the council and appointed Pandor as his deputy.[14] Pandor was subsequently elected leader of the council in 2018.” [Wikipedia]

You can see that Labour monopolizes the positions of importance at that council and that, over recent years, the non-whites have taken over from the former sort of Labour councillors, who were English, or at least ethnically British.

Incidentally, the salaried CEO of the Council is one Jacqui Gedman, who received, in 2019, over £156,000, and probably gets a great deal more in 2021: https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/information-and-data/pdf/open-data/senior-salaries-and-organisational-structure-2019.xlsx. Despite that, the Council has been heavily criticized for its failures in recent years.

See this, too:

In June 2016 the Huddersfield Daily Examiner exposed several councillors who had failed to pay their Council Tax. Five serving councillors, four Labour and one Conservative, had been issued with court claims after previously receiving reminder letters.[15]

Two councillors who had denied the allegations, Deputy Leader Jean Calvert and Amanda Pinnock, were suspended by the Labour Party. It was the second time in as many years that Calvert had failed to pay her Council Tax when it was due, and Pinnock had accused the Examiner of racism.” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirklees_Council#’Ratesgate’_scandal

Looks like Labour (especially) needs a big and damaging kick at the by-election. Looks as though the voting will be split mainly on racial/ethnic lines.

It’s a mad mad mad mad…UK

Be a psychopath and burn down buildings (etc) and you are “spared jail”, but sing a few songs about Jewish behaviour (Alison Chabloz), or make a short political speech in Whitehall (Jez Turner) and you are sentenced to imprisonment (despite, inter alia, being of good character, i.e. no previous convictions). Justice? Or an unjust and biased farce?

Though superficially seeming impossible, is it impossible?

I see Blair as just as much a puppet of NWO/ZOG as, say, Boris-idiot, but one with more ability.

Jeremy Corbyn, anti-Zionist though not really “anti-Semitic” (regrettably), was removed by what amounted to a Jewish and Israeli covert operation, and was replaced by Keir Starmer, who has a Jewish wife (a lawyer), and children who are being brought up as if fully-Jewish. However, it is clear that, while the pro-Israel lobby on Twitter and in the msm likes Starmer, the voting public is unconvinced. Twice as many people prefer (even?) “Boris” to Starmer as future Prime Minister. Bearing in mind how incredibly poor “Boris” has proven to be, that is really something.

If Starmer were to be jettisoned, and with no obvious way forward for Labour, I can imagine that Blair might just be reinstalled, though most Labour members and (voting) supporters seem to be hostile. In one sense, almost impossible; in another, almost inevitable (?).

As to the voters generally, given a choice of “Boris” or Blair, more of them might say “Blair” than would say either “Boris” or “Starmer”… Never say never, I suppose.

“Rahul Kohli”…an “Englishman”?! Ha ha! I looked him up on Wikipedia; TV and film actor, apparently.

People now, many of them, cannot see that an historical figure can do “good things” while also doing things now (100-200 years later) thought of as “not good”….There is no nuance in 2021. It’s all black and white, good v. evil…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egerton_Ryerson], and adjudged as such by, usually, those ill-equipped to make such determinations.

The (relative) few can see what is happening, but the majority either cannot see or can see but still go along with the conspiratorial agenda because they think that nails that stick out get hammered down.

It is ever thus: only the few are the leaders, or in the vanguard. Only the few are the dissidents. There are innumerable historical examples, perhaps the most obvious being the dissidents of various kinds in the Soviet Union. Others would include the early scientists who stood up against, inter alia, heresy laws from the late mediaeval period still extant in the Renaissance. Or again, those in the present age who stand up against quasi-mediaeval “holocaust” “denial” laws and repressions.

At first, both as MP at Westminster and later as PM, especially when meeting the American President at Camp David, Blair was quite naive-looking, or as Mephistopheles puts it in Faust, “an intelligent youth, easy to instruct”. Later, he took on a “devilish” look, and now, at times, looks quite mad as he evidently sees himself as a prime mover and shaker of the Western NWO/ZOG conspiracy/consensus.

Nick Thomas-Symonds

Listened to fairly pathetic BBC Radio 4 PM. Talk about the migration invasion, and in particular the cross-Channel traffic of illegals in small boats. Guest interviewee was one “Nick Thomas”, whom I now see was Nick Thomas-Symonds [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Thomas-Symonds], the Shadow Home Secretary.

So irrelevant has the Labour Party now become that I (someone who takes a fairly close interest in political and Parliamentary affairs) was actually unaware that Nick Thomas was in that post. In fact, I had never heard of him.

Turns out that, on paper, this is a well-educated person, and a barrister who belongs to Lincoln’s Inn, as did I until the Jew-Zionist lobby procured my disbarment in 2016 (thus triggering my expulsion from my Inn).

Sadly, but not at all surprisingly, in answering questions about the migration invasion, Nick Thomas showed himself to be yet another Welsh windbag, taking a great deal of time to say absolutely nothing. Incapable of criticizing mass immigration as such. No real “solution” except to demand that more money be spent in the migrants’ home countries, thus magically stopping the waves of migration. Yeah, right…

That interview was telling, for me. Labour has absolutely nothing to say. Labour has nothing to offer the British people. Even less than has the chaotic government of “Boris”. Labour is washed-up.

It will be interesting to see how far Labour will fall in the two presently-upcoming by-elections.

“No proof coronavirus can be spread while shopping, says leading German virologist”

“Initial findings suggest virus may be less easily transmitted than thought.” [Daily Telegraph]

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/04/02/no-proof-coronavirus-can-spread-shopping-says-leading-german/?li_source=LI&li_medium=li-recommendation-widget

Prof Streeck said the virus had not even been found on door knobs or animal fur. He told German TV that there had been ‘no proven infections while shopping or at the hairdressers’.

“‘We know it’s not a smear infection that is transmitted by touching objects, but that close dancing and exuberant celebrations have led to infections.’

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8182767/Scientist-casts-doubt-coronavirus-spread.html

Oh, so the ridiculous “social distancing” nonsense in the UK supermarkets and elsewhere, complete with petty authoritarians calling out “[Please] stand behind the yellow line!” (with or without a “Sir” on the end) may not even be necessary?

Also, it now seems that you cannot get or are very unlikely to get this virus by touching objects, even if the virus is on the surfaces.

Social gatherings

There is at least some evidence that Coronavirus spreads most readily in social gatherings where people are hot, excited, closely-packed: an apres-ski bar in Austria, a Berlin “club”, a football game, Jews celebrating their tribal festival called Purim, people at carnivals in Germany, the attendees at Cabinet meetings in London.

I myself shall continue to wash hands frequently with soap and water, and I shall continue to avoid others as far as possible, which is surely only sensible, but my sense is that, in the UK, this crisis, as a purely medical crisis, has peaked or is close to peak, whatever the government and msm may be saying. If I am wrong in that, I am wrong, but I have a strong intuition about it.

An important little piece of news. In the group tested, 74% of those who showed no symptoms of Coronavirus tested positive, meaning that they had or had had the virus.

This is what I am coming to believe has happened in the UK: huge numbers are or have been infected but have shown few, if any, symptoms. That, in turn, might mean that our economy and society has been almost shut down unnecessarily, but we cannot know for sure. One could say “better safe than sorry”, but for how long?

Meanwhile

“Parents of teenagers who flout coronavirus lockdown rules should be fined, police told”

“Government polling, not released to public, identifies teenagers as ‘problem’ group when it comes to compliance, Telegraph learns.” [Daily Telegraph]

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/04/02/parents-teenagers-flout-coronavirus-lockdown-rules-should-fined/

Did it really come as a surprise to “the authorities” that teenagers might rebel against a rule purporting to put them into house arrest from March until June or July or for longer? Three months, four months or longer. That was never likely to fly. In fact, I doubt whether older people will continue to comply for very long, particularly when they realize (as many will and some already do) that this virus, though certainly a serious public health threat, is not the Black Death or the Plague.

As I predicted from the start, the British people, while willing to be corralled a bit for the general good in a situation replete with scaremongering, would not sit still under this absurd and contrived Toytown police state forever or for very long.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/04/02/number-people-leaving-house-has-risen-latest-survey-shows-amid/?li_source=LI&li_medium=liftigniter-rhr

Toytown police and the poundland KGB

Once again, Britain’s increasingly absurd police are trying to enforce rules that do not exist or have no legal force, using powers that they do not have:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8179655/Britains-conviction-breaching-lockdown-ILLEGAL.html

‘The police seem to have applied powers they don’t have. Whatever the investigation, the prosecution has to be right under the act’.”

“‘There’s a mixing up here of the Coronavirus Act & the Emergency Regulations. It looks like the police, prosecution & magistrates did the same thing resulting in a wrongful prosecution & conviction’.” [Daily Mail]

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is closing all bars for two weeks. It seems that 75% of Coronavirus cases in HK have been linked to bars. A further indication that excited, hot social situations are where this virus becomes particularly actively transmittable.

The Press is waving, but I am laughing

I hate the “British” Press and, yes, that does include weekly publications such as The Spectator. They are all completely infested by the Jewish-Zionist element. Some have a few sparks of light amid the darkness, but they are all basically on the wrong side. If they disappear because of the Coronavirus (or rather the extreme measures taken by the Boris-idiot government), then I am content. I particularly want the “journalists” and other scribblers to suffer, from the fake or would-be “intellectuals” (which, I suppose, would include idiots such as Yasmin Alibhai-Brown and Zoe Williams) to the bottom of barrel ignoramus types such as Carole Malone and Susie Boniface (aka “the Fleet Street Fox”). Particularly damned are those who wrote about me after my disbarment (procured by a pack of malicious Jews in 2016). Down with all of them.

Labour: Corbyn’s last day

Thoughts:

Good point.

Here’s another good point, this time from leading commentator John Rentoul:

That is a point worth holding onto. For social-nationalists. In the right circumstances, almost anyone, with any “extreme” policy offering, can attain to political power, whether via “ballot box” or ammunition box.

Lenin thought that 1905 was “the” Revolution in Russia. He was wrong. He also thought, at first, that the February 1917 Revolution in Petrograd was not the Revolution for which he had waited all his life. Wrong again, Lenin had to hurry across Europe to join in, only arriving in April 1917. He then fomented a coup d’etat in October 1917 (Julian calendar).

Hitler’s NSDAP only got 2.6% of the national vote in Germany in 1928. Then the Great Depression happened. By 1932, the NSDAP vote was 33%, enough to give the NSDAP a seat in government. The following year, 1933, that vote went up to 44% and Hitler was proclaimed Chancellor.

bb-5bc29c0a06772

The effective stoppage of the world economy might cause a shock big enough to unseat, not only a government here and there, but the whole accepted basis for governments across the world.

As for the Labour Party, the three contenders are all pretty much of a muchness. All have kow-towed to the Jew lobby, for one thing. Rebecca Long-Bailey is more radical than the other two, but at the end of the day, she also signed her name —not in her own blood, so be it— to what the Jew lobby wanted. Das ist’s!

One tweet seen:

and the Jewish lobby is still looking for at least one pound of flesh…

In fact, Labour is still declining in the polls. I think that the last one I saw had Labour on about 26% or 27%. Many will say, “it could not go lower”. No? Look at Scottish Labour.

Britain needs a credible new movement, a social-national one.

What is really behind the Coronavirus “lockdowns” worldwide?

I do not ask, as do those labelled “conspiracy theorists”, what is behind the virus itself. For the moment, I take the narrative as broadcast, that the virus somehow developed out of a barbaric seafood and live animal market in Wuhan, China. No, what I ask is: why the global “lockdown”? Is there some plan behind it? If so, what? A new New World Order, based on popular fear of pandemic? Seems unlikely, despite the quasi-dictatorial measures being put in place worldwide. There must be an additional factor which has not yet happened.

Another tweet seen today

This tweet combines Corbyn and Coronavirus in a criticism of Jewish lobby puppet MP Jess Phillips:

In fact, it is clear that the relatively mild ordeal of Jess Phillips is a widespread phenomenon. The television pictures of the gravely unwell etc tend to distract us from the big picture: most Coronavirus sufferers in fact suffer briefly (indeed often not at all), never need hospital treatment and may be unaware that they have been infected and then either not affected, and/or in any case recovered within days.

Tax-dodging Jew Philip Green, whose wife, the beneficial majority owner of Arcadia, is domiciled in Monaco, asks British taxpayers to prop up his retail empire, which was collapsing even before Coronavirus existed.

The Queen

It seems that the Queen will make a rare television broadcast on Sunday 5 April 2020. Could it be that she will abdicate in favour of Charles? I have always assumed that she would carry on until Fate took a hand, but maybe not. On the other hand, it may be all about the Coronavirus situation throughout the Commonwealth.

Jud Süss, a film well worth seeing

Jud Süss, [ The Jew Süss] made in 1940, is a costume drama based closely on a true story from the 18thC in Germany, before the various kingdoms and principalities had been unified into one German state. It tells the story of how a Jew managed, via manipulation of money, to take over the State, before he eventually faced justice.

You will never see Jud Süss on any TV channel. Banned. Even YouTube has now taken it down (as it has most “anti-Jew”, National Socialist and social-national films, songs, photos etc). Make the most of it [see below] while you can…

“Nightingale emergency coronavirus hospital may not be needed as urgently as expected”

London’s intensive care units were expected to be overflowing at this point but are only three-quarters full

But while the emergency capacity had been expected to be required as soon as last Wednesday, the first patients are now likely to arrive early next week – a tentative sign that the coronavirus outbreak in the capital may not be as bad as expected.” [The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/03/nightingale-emergency-coronavirus-hospital-london

Maybe I was right in my guess that the virus crisis is both less serious than at first thought and, also, already at or past its peak.

Dershowitz protests (too much?)

BBC World Service, and Stephen Sackur on Hard Talk interviews (Jew Zionist) lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who says that he was introduced to (Jew Zionist) paedophile and rapist Jeffrey Epstein by (Jew Zionist) “Lady Rothschild of the UK” and her husband. There seems to be rather (((a theme))) here…

No mention on Hard Talk of the “ho” madam, the (Jew-Zionist) Ghislaine Maxwell, but she is said to be (as I guessed many months ago) hiding out in Israel, whose intelligence services she seems to have been helping for years.

Meanwhile, it seems that idiotic “royal prince” Andrew has been caught out lying about various matters again. He is a complete waste of space, and I fear that a few weeks on the fringes of the Falklands War nearly 40 years ago will not exculpate him.

Sussex sort-of royals

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8035719/Theyve-lost-perspective-Palace-insider-blasts-Harry-Meghan-swipe-Queen.html

Spare a thought for the peabrained multikulti virtue-signallers who were all so happy that the British Royal Family had welcomed a mulatta into its “senior” ranks! Now that it has all gone to ratshit, they heap the blame on “bigots” and “racists”, not on the Royal Mulatta herself or the increasingly pathetic figure of Prince Harry.

Harry had it all, a couple of years or so ago: the adulation —or at least applause— of the mob, a carte blanche to drink and bonk his way through London, an Army service record of some honour, including two front-line deployments in Afghanistan, combined with a congruent record of involvement with military charities. However, to quote the Colonel in the 1960 film The League of Gentlemen, speaking of Major Rutland-Smith, “marriage changed all that”.

 

 

That is pretty much Harry’s story. He was easily seduced by what amounts to a mulatta adventuress. For all the talk of how MM was a film star etc, the only acting work she did where she was a “star” of sorts was a TV series called Suits, filmed in Toronto. I myself had never heard of it or of her until she married Harry, though I concede that, as a trendy C of E clergyman once told me on Twitter, I am “a bit out of the cultural loop” as far as contemporary mass or mob TV and film is concerned.

In fact, it seems that MM was making about USD $450,000 a year (for 6 years) on Suits (2010-2016), which in pounds sterling, after about 25%-30% tax, works out at about £200,000 a year net. Not bad, but not a great fortune. Before Suits, she had only a few lucrative one-off roles, paying much less than USD $200,000 a year gross, so in pounds sterling about £100,000 net per year. Her worth, in money terms, when she met Harry? About £1.2M, minus whatever she spent in those 6 years. She probably had about half a million pounds or so. Again, not bad, but a rather small fortune.

Now look! We are told that she “and Harry” have possibilities of commercial deals in the tens or even hundreds of millions. The Mulatta is not the only adventuress in world history, and Harry is not the only [well, you decide].

Keir Starmer corners the market in dullness

As I predicted, Keir Starmer is coming over as being as dull as ditchwater, but he is making that into a virtue after Labour’s years of msm-contrived sensations. He is expected to win the Labour leadership contest now.

The next General Election

Latest opinion poll. Conservatives still very high (47%) and slightly up on previous poll by same organization. Labour slightly down on 31%. LibDems 9%. I never take as serious anything under 5%. That lets out Greens and “Brexit Party” (which I am surprised still registers at all).

So far, in the rigged FPTP system, Cons are still high because Labour is still hopeless, not on Con merit, which is non-existent. The “Conservative” regime of little tyrant Boris-idiot has in fact already shown its lack of nous, but in a basically binary system is yet ahead of Labour. It may be that over time people will wake up to this stupid “government”, but that time has not yet arrived.

I blogged previously about how Boris-idiot is no good in a crisis. That is becoming obvious: flood situation, coronavirus etc, but whatever happens, this government is there for 2, 3, even nearly 4 years, and sits there unchallenged.

Importation of humanoid trash

Britain has been importing humanoid trash for decades. Example:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/dad-stabbed-ex-front-kids-21550150

To what sort of society does that lead? Not only can no better society be created with such material, but even the existing reasonably civilized society (that Britain had in the 1970s or 1980s and of which remnants still exist) cannot be maintained.

Northern Ireland news

Presumably, 8% = “Don’t Know”. The 45% for “United Ireland” is a big increase on what it was back in the real time of The Troubles in the early 1970s. I believe that in those days the Republican/United Ireland vote was estimated at around 35%. Demographics. The mostly Catholic population has or in those days had more children. Whatever the reason, though, there may be a tipping point in the next decade: 50-50 for United Ireland v. Remain in UK, and (perhaps) a Sinn Fein government in the South.

If Northern Ireland were to split away from the UK, and if, also, Scotland were to split away, then the position of the UK would look very different, not only in terms of domestic politics but also in terms of geopolitics.

Boris-idiot

I have been hostile to “Boris” for many years, since he was (underwhelmingly) MP for Henley. Others have now caught up; the public has not— yet. I think that it has to happen before too long, though. The part-Jew public entertainer cannot fill the boots of a prime minister. Speaking of boots, an article now compares Boris-idiot to Caligula:

https://www.politico.eu/article/uk-prime-minister-boris-johnson-brexit-the-new-caligula/

HS2

A Chinese enterprise “promises” to build HS2 in 5 years at relatively low cost (£100 BN instead of £120 BN or more? Original estimate was £62 BN…). At what environmental cost?

What does Boris Johnson, Boris-idiot, care? A part-Jew, part-Turk, part God-knows-what, born in New York City, brought up mainly in the USA and Brussels, whose stepmother is a very wealthy Jewess. What does he care about Britain and the people of Britain? He is only interested in money, at root. He is not a legitimate Prime Minister, and anything is justified to remove him.

Ireland

People wanted to kick the government and Sinn Fein provided the shoe to do the kicking,” says Christy Parker, a journalist from the beautiful but de-industrialised town of Youghal in county Cork. He speaks of the “chasm” between the elite benefiting from Ireland’s impressive economic progress and the large part of the population that has been left behind.” [The Independent]

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/sinn-fein-ireland-election-victory-brexit-politics-elite-a9336496.html

That was my impression too, though I have not been to Ireland since the mid-1980s (and before that, the late 1970s), and a lot of water has flowed since then.

 

In fact, that is one reason why the UK should develop a real social-national party, because it just might come about that the shopworn System parties will flag at the very moment when the British people will be desperate for something, anything…

Returning to Ireland, where does it go from here? Sinn Fein, which fought only a proportion of the seats in contest, nonetheless won a plurality of the popular vote: Sinn Fein 24.5% (37 seats), Fianna Fail 22.2% (38 seats), Fine Gael 20.9% (35 seats).

The Irish Parliament, the Dail, has 160 seats including the (non-voting) Ceann Comhairle (Speaker). 80 seats are required to form a coalition government; alternatively to create a “confidence and supply” arrangement less than a coalition.

In other words, one of the first three parties will have to join with one of the others (or both of the others) and/or smaller parties. Sinn Fein thinks that it can get by via an extended coalition with a number of smaller parties. Alternatively, the two main System parties together would only be 7 or 8 votes (the last Speaker was from Fianna Fail) short of a majority.

So far, neither of the System parties has agreed even to talk to Sinn Fein: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-51508380

Sinn Fein would have to bring on board almost all the small parties and most of the (19) Independents in order to rule.

 

Labour leadership

Emily Thornberry is out, thus leaving Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey and Lisa Nandy as remaining contenders. At present, Keir Starmer looks like a shoo-in. I doubt that he would excite many voters, but it may be that in 2022 or 2024, after years of Boris-idiot as PM, that very dullness might even be a selling point…

Storm comment

Stop all farm subsidies. They are a major reason why farmers and landowners pay £10,000 an acre for agricultural (non-building) land. This system (despite some “stewardship” subsidies or grants) is anti-environment, overall, paying money merely for owning land, while the farmers carry on as free businessmen in most respects. Public money going to private pockets, deep pockets at that.

Mike Stuchbery

Many will be familiar with the name of Mike Stuchbery, the “antifa” cheerleader who is said to have instigated a kind of “home invasion” at the house of Tommy Robinson’s wife (Stuchbery spins it differently) in 2019. Stuchbery then got a nasty shock when “Robinson” turned up at Stuchbery’s own house (both were located in the Luton area)

Stuchbery

There has been water under bridges since then. “Robinson” has done (more) time in prison, while Stuchbery fled with his “German” wife to Stuttgart, where he now lives.

I have blogged a couple of times about Stuchbery:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/11/27/mike-stuchbery-and-tommy-robinson-legal-dispute/  (the latter is updated as necessary).

I have mocked Stuchbery’s constant claims to be a hard worker holding down (as he ludicrously pretends) “three jobs”, when it is obvious that he is what his detractors claim, a kind of grifter who relies mainly on donations from supporters, State assistance, and also a working wife (as I apprehend).

Not that there is anything wrong with those three methods of subsistence, an sich. It does grate a little, though, when Stuchbery makes his claims of being a grafter rather than a grifter. He seems to have plenty of time to travel around and, on weekday morns, stroll into Stuttgart for the odd melange and, as it might be, some Schwarzwaldtorte or Sachertorte (actually, the latter is my own favourite…).

I happened to be looking for the first time at the Byline Times, the online “newspaper” headed by the writer Peter Jukes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Jukes]. This is one of Stuchbery’s “three jobs”, I believe. Well, last year (2019), he wrote, by my count, 19 fairly short pieces for Byline Times. So one article every 2-3 weeks. So far, in 2020, only one article. I cannot imagine that that pays much, if anything.

I believe that Stuchbery also takes tourists around Stuttgart and teaches some English as a foreign language.

Actually, Stuchbery reminds me of the conscientious objector, member of a religious cult, during WW2, who was asked how he intended to make his living if not in the armed forces. He replied, on the form provided, “God will provide. (wife working)“!

Stuchbery explained his reasons for fleeing to Germany in an article written on 2 September last year, my birthday in fact: https://bylinetimes.com/2019/09/02/goodbye-to-all-that/

An underwhelming read, frankly. Britain has declined hugely since the 1980s, let alone early 1970s. Stuchbery has not the personal experience (he only arrived from Australia in 2014, though apparently he was born here), or historian’s —or journalistic— skills, to make much sense of trends and events.

Stuchbery thinks that copying bits out of books or tourist pamphlets makes him a “historian”, just as he thinks that scribbling for platforms such as Byline Times makes him a “journalist”. It’s risible. Look at my blog about him to see a few howlers that he has made.

I have had to explain at intervals that being opposed to “antifa” inciters and enemies of free speech like Stuchbery does not mean that I am in any way a supporter of Tommy Robinson.

At present, I am waiting, with great interest, for Stuchbery’s supposed and proposed legal case against Tommy Robinson (for which a crazed woman called Roanna “@antifashwitch” has raised about £11,000 via GoFundMe). I think that, like the Jewish Messiah and the “cheque in the post”, the lawsuit is unlikely to ever come to pass…

The midnight hour approaches…

A stormy day dawns…

 

Labour leadership

Interesting grid graphic. Keir Starmer was nominated by

  • Margaret Beckett (assiduously devoted expenses cheat, freeloader, deadhead and Jewish lobby doormat);
  • Yvette Cooper (expenses cheat and freeloader, as well as being a “refugees welcome” hypocrite, Jewish lobby doormat, would-be dictator and all-round bitch);
  • David Lammy (anti-white “racist” —despite apparently being married to a white woman— , enemy of freedom of expression, Jewish lobby doormat);
  • Hilary Benn (rather a dim fellow, another doormat for the Jewish lobby);
  • Ed Miliband

Image

I suppose that Keir Starmer is the most obviously “System” candidate. I do not dislike his views or self enough to say that I am opposed to him, exactly. It is more that I find him underwhelming, a kind of nullity. There’s nothing much to hold on to either way, either by way of credit or criticism. He was neither hopeless nor brilliant as Director of Public Prosecutions, though as DPP he did not stand up for freedom of expression on social, political and historical topics, which is all-important at present. The Jews do not oppose him as candidate Labour leader. A worrying sign…

Another point about Keir Starmer that I have noticed is that he has few ideas about policy. There’s nothing new there. An occupational hazard among barristers, in my view. I know that I am not alone in thinking that Keir Starmer is weak on policy, having recently seen that some commentators agree with me on that.

LBC

Many know that the LBC radio station is basically (((occupied))). Even those who, like Nick Ferrari, are not actually Jewish, are very pro-Israel, always pro the Jewish lobby, often inviting Jew Zionists, such as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” (“CAA”) criminals, onto their shows (where the Zionists are allowed to propagandize, and are rarely if ever put on the spot).

In September 2019, Ferrari said, after a visit to Israel, “I’d been given an insight into a country that I’ve always admired and I now revered.” [Wikipedia]. Revered? Revered?! Maybe there is a blot on the Ferrari escutcheon after all…

The political part of LBC is totally infested. Look at this, below, in which the LBC presenter in question speaks on behalf of foreign criminals (rapists, murderers, serial violent robbers etc) a few of whom are at long last being deported:

Matthew Stadlen. A half-Jew. Quelle surprise… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Stadlen#Background

Some of the replies to the tweet (click on the picture to see thread) are forthright, and very few support this Stadlen person.

 

“Campaign Against Antisemitism” fake charity

A few facts for the often naive and easily-manipulated police and CPS to consider in relation to various matters, including the persecution of Alison Chabloz.

The present Director of Public Prosecutions now refuses to meet with the “CAA”. Looks like he, at least, has woken up to their Jewish “lawfare” abuse…

…also note how Joe Glasman describes a crowd of about a hundred or so Jews as “thousands”. Must be number-inflation (“holocaust” farrago arithmetic?…). Or just more lies.

Here (below) is Glasman (having eaten a couple of wine gums or drunk some “Samson” region wine), exulting over Jews having “slaughtered” Labour and “taken back”…the UK, which they evidently believe belongs to them…

Example of how the “holocaust” farrago is the sole cultural myth that keeps the otherwise-disparate Jewish world from simply fragmenting…

The clip in the tweet below shows Jewish daytime game show presenter, Rachel Riley, now an extremely fervent pro-Israel and “anti-anti-Semitic” activist, explaining to her interviewer that she was not brought up religiously or even culturally Jewish, but garnered her Jewish identity from the Zionist ur-mythus of the “holocaust” farrago:

More comments about the fake “charity”, the “CAA”, seen online…

The “CAA” and its corrupt links to police, politicians, CPS and other bodies, “elected” police and crime commissioners (notably the one in Derbyshire, a Sikh born in India, who was involved with the persecution of Alison Chabloz: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardyal_Dhindsa) and the infested msm, should have been investigated and dealt with years ago. Here is part of my experience:

Irish Election

Looks as though Sinn Fein will be forming the next Irish government. Not everyone is pleased:

The tweeter has a point, but the vital questions for the EU are

  • “will the governing party go along with EU convergence plans?”
  • “will the governing party go along with the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan to replace white Northern European people with blacks and browns?”
  • “will the governing party obey the NWO/ZOG agenda?”

Sinn Fein will probably comply with all of the above. For example, Sinn Fein has actually supported the black/brown migration-invasion of Ireland. Result? It is acceptable to the EU…

https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi

There is also the point that, unless I have misunderstood the Irish electoral process, the new government will only function as lead party in a coalition, Sinn Fein having only just pipped the other two main parties, with about 24% of the national popular vote.

Elastic history

I just saw another tweet to add to hundreds of others over the years, all of which say “my father liberated Belsen concentration camp”. Actually, a relative few say “my grandfather”, “uncle” or “I knew someone who…”). It has often been said that a small number of SAS soldiers stormed the Iranian Embassy nearly 40 years ago, but that hundreds (often not SAS or ex-SAS at all!) have claimed to have been there at the material time. So it is with “the liberation of Belsen”. Obviously, some British soldiers were there in 1945, but it becomes a bit stupid when everyone and his dog is supposed to have been there. Likewise, the fact that many unfortunate prisoners died at Belsen from disease or starvation at the end of the war (the result of epidemics, shortage of medicines, bombing of roads and railways) does not establish that, hundreds or thousands of miles to the East, Jews were “gassed”.

The Boris-idiot joke regime ploughs on

We are back to the days of Harold Wilson’s third government in the mid-1970s, to the “Lavender List” of Lady “Forkbender” etc! Who has more influence over Boris-idiot, the Lunatic-in-Chief or the Boss’s “ho”? It’s a bloody joke!

Labour leadership contest

Emily Thornberry, who may or may not go through to the actual election for Labour leader, makes some points about absentee landlords “from China” or wherever.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/landlords-empty-homes-housing-crisis-labour-leadership-emily-thornberry-bristol-a9313051.html

She is in a slightly embarrassing position, bearing in mind the news, a few years ago, that she herself (with her husband, a High Court judge) owns no less than 8 buy to let properties! True, she is making a different point here, but she is in a rather awkward position all the same.

As for the three others already in the race, Lisa Nandy made a perhaps correct but rather underwhelming point about “left behind” towns in the North;

Rebecca Long-Bailey says that “quality homes” should be built, saying (truly enough) that “Housing is a basic human right and we are not providing our people with that basic human right at the moment”; [The Guardian]

Keir Starmer “said that more houses were required at “rents and rates that people can actually afford”. He said overcrowding in London was having a negative impact on children’s learning and labelled the current situation “disgraceful”. “Don’t see it as a housing issue, see it as a much bigger social justice issue because that’s what it is,” Sir Keir said.” [The Guardian].

The points made by Starmer and Rebecca Long-Bailey were true in themselves, but we know that the UK population has grown by somewhere between 10 million and 15 million in only 20 years. Most of the growth has been the result of immigration (including births to immigrants). 15 million! Even if you were (generously) to assume as many as 5 persons per household, that works out at three million households! Yet not one of the Labour Party leadership contenders has flagged mass immigration even as a issue (except binned loudmouth Jess Phillips, who is stupid enough to think that mass immigration to the UK is and has been a wonderful bonus for the British people!).

Mass immigration to the UK, and births to those immigrants, poses an existential threat to the UK, not because these non-Brits are terrorists (relatively few are) but because the integrity (not only racial or ethnic, but also cultural) of the UK is strained now. Seriously strained.

It has got to the point where the System (and also the “anti-fascist” idiots etc) try to enforce the point of view that anyone with a British passport is “British” (and even “English”, “Scottish”, “Welsh”), when real British people do not accept that fiction. An example would be the black-clad “ISIS brides”: on paper, “British”, but in reality certainly not. It has put us in the position where British people have lost almost all sense of their own identity.

In fact, it may be that that scrabbling around for “identity” is one reason why there has grown up in recent decades some kind of near-obsession with how England (in particular), and as a sporting nation, is doing in football, cricket, rugby etc. Olympics too (under UK banner). Is it a wish for identity, however shallow?

Marr

Just watching The Andrew Marr Show. Impressions:

  • Nigel Farage in a rather loud yellow silk tie quite like (maybe the same as) one I used to wear sometimes, years ago (I never wear —or have to wear— a collar and tie these days);
  • Farage attempting to talk up Brexit Party as a living entity. How is that possible, after he stabbed all his candidates and members in the back at the height of the 2019 General Election campaign?
  • Wuhan: what amazes me is how many UK, French, Australian, American persons have recently been in, or even been resident in, Wuhan. If I am honest, I have to admit ignorance as to Wuhan; I do not believe that I ever heard the name until the coronavirus struck; China does tend to amaze: 11 million people in Wuhan, yet it is merely the eleventh-largest Chinese city!
  • Leo Varadkar, the “Irish” PM, says that an alleged diktat from Downing Street, forbidding UK diplomats from sitting next to EU diplomats, is “petty”. I have to agree, but that is what the EU itself did when it disagreed with the election of so-called “far right” politicians in Austria and Portugal a few years ago…;
  • Sinn Fein apparently “second” in popularity in Eire (as I often call Ireland), where there will soon be a general election…Well, Marr said second, but the Irish press are saying that Sinn Fein and Fianna Fail are now level in support (24% each, with Fine Gael on 21%) https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/ireland/poll-puts-sinn-fein-level-with-fianna-fail-to-win-election-979234.html;
  • Dominic Raab (a half-Jew) talking about the proposed immigration points system. All it means is that supposedly “qualified” persons, with a UK job offer at a —low-ish—salary level of about £26,000 pa (e.g. Indians who can work a computer, or who bought a degree somewhere), will come, with their extended families. Those who enter, and their children, will start to breed in the UK…this is a disaster about to happen; it has ruined parts of Australia (another “points system” country), by the way;
  • John McDonnell playing (and describing himself as) the “elder statesman”. Ha ha! As I blogged after the election, when he was interviewed in his garden, he looked like nothing so much as a bemused pensioner, tipped out of his wheelchair and mugged;
  • Why does Marr not ask John McDonnell why he and Corbyn (and all but about 4 “Labour” MPs) signed up to the fake “International Definition of Antisemitism” (which has been adopted by only a dozen or so countries in the world)? McDonnell has behaved as a doormat for the Jewish lobby for years; he obviously thought that the lobby would help him to become Labour leader. Ha ha! Bye!…
  • McDonnell saying that all the Labour leadership candidates are “superb, fantastic…”. He’s a complete idiot! He even thinks that Dawn Butler might lead Labour!
  • Marr a little too polite to McDonnell. After Leo Varadkar was asked about Sinn Fein about to overtake Fianna Fail and possibly form a government in Dublin, Marr could have asked McDonnell about his previous support for not only Sinn Fein but the Provisional IRA itself. Or would that be too edgy? Yes, McDonnell was pro-IRA long ago, but I bet that if I were on Marr, I would be asked about things I said back in the 1980s or 1970s…;
  • Donald Tusk interviewed. He was born in 1957. He graduated in 1980. He came to prominence after 1990. What was he doing for the decade of the 1980s? His long Wikipedia entry says nothing about that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Tusk

The fake charity, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [CAA] is at last being properly investigated, it seems. It is not charitable in any sense. It is a political pressure group which supports a foreign state (Israel). It is completely political. Its main office-holders have repeatedly been caught trolling (usually using pseudonyms) and offline stalking those they consider as enemies, particularly several women. The latest drunken Jewish triumphalist rant by one Joe Glasman (brother of “lord” Maurice Glasman of “Blue Labour”), posted on Twitter but deleted, is merely one of its latest excesses:

HS2

No discussion of the disastrous HS2 nonsense on Marr. £120 BILLION and it could be more! This was another of David Cameron-Levita’s failed policies. Just bite the bullet, cancel it, sack its people, then redirect some of the money to giving both the North of England and the rest of England better rail services, new less environmentally-destructive lines (such as ultralight trains, narrow-gauge, robot trains, inter-suburban trams etc).

High-speed trains are useful in countries which are large (eg France) or very large (such as China) or very long, such as Japan (the same is true of Chile, Russia, Australia, though none of those have high-speed rail).

Japan is 1,900 miles long and the two main islands and others are joined by rail and road tunnels. Even the largest island, Honshu, on its own, is over 800 miles long, i.e. far longer than the UK, and with a number of very large industrial and commercial cities. Japan is developing an ultra high speed maglev line on which trains will run at over 300 mph:

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

HS2 is just not useful for the UK, even discounting the environmental damage and the huge cost.

Sinn Fein

I have in the past generally been opposed to Sinn Fein and its military wing (the IRA), but the Troubles were some time ago now. At least the IRA were white Northern Europeans with vestiges of decency, unlike the ISIS barbarians and other enemies of Western culture and life.

I see that Sinn Fein are the likely victors in the current Irish General Election. That being so, and in the spirit of diplomacy…

…and here’s one specially for John McDonnell!

The Jews I met at an oasis

A random tweet just reminded me of when I met a group of Jews in a desert oasis. It happened like this: I was in Egypt for several months in the winter of 1997-1998. I started off in charming Aswan, spent a week or two under canvas in a then-remote part of the Red Sea coast, and then a month or so in Alexandria (an experience recounted, in part, here: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/03/07/when-i-was-not-arrested-in-egypt/).

I left Alexandria to visit the remote oasis of Siwa, in the Western Desert not very far from Libya and South West of the Qattara Depression and only a mile or two from the first great dunes of the Great Sea of Sand:

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

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

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

275681-Siwa_Oasis_Egypt275695-The_desert oasis of Siwa

SiwaPanoramaA VIEW OF THE OLD AND NEW CITY OF SIWA IN EGYPT'S WESTERN DESERT.

I lived for a month, maybe longer, in a kind of small concrete chalet in the garden of the very small hotel I used. The hotel garden was sand but planted with closely-situated date palms. I discovered that dry date palm fronds, fallen from the trees, burn easily. Thus I inadvertently started a “tradition” of having a fire around which people gathered and talked in the cool of the evening.

Most visitors to the oasis would arrive on the one bus (a luxury Mercedes coach) in early evening, stay only one or two nights, then return to Alexandria (an 8-hour journey via Marsa Matruh on the coast). By the time I left, I had spent at least a month there and was the longest-resident foreigner save for a Finnish person who did Tai Chi on the flat roof of the hotel (well, maybe you have to be a little unusual to stay long at Siwa!) and an Anglican nun who wanted to set up a Christian centre there (not a very good idea even if the authorities approved it, which was almost inconceivable). Turned out that she knew a man who had tried (unsuccessfully) to teach me Physics when I was at school in the early 1970s. Small world.

I met a number of mostly young people there. I myself was an arguably youthful 41. Apart from the Finn and the English nun, I recall quite a few others who stayed at the oasis for longer than average. Some were more eccentric than others.

There was an odd young man from somewhere near Lancaster. When in the UK, he lived in a caravan on a red squirrel conservancy and had inherited a small legacy (£12,000, I think) from his grandmother. He had lived for eight years on that, in India. He said that India was both cheaper and dirtier than Egypt. I found both statements hard to believe.

Another oddity, also English, was someone about 28, whom I at first took to be some sort of evangelical Christian, but who in fact was a militant atheist. Very militant. He had bicycled across vast expanses (including the Kazakh steppe), using a specially-built bicycle which had water storage inside its frame. He had cycled from Alexandria and was planning to cycle from Siwa to the next oasis, Bahariya, a journey of some 250 miles to the East, on a desert road used only by occasional Egyptian Army patrols, perhaps once weekly. Not a good place to get a flat or run out of water. I wonder whether he made it.

One young lady, a very attractive French girl from Rennes, the capital of Brittany, was rather interested in me, but had a boyfriend with her, a rather pleasant fellow from Montpelier, so our animated conversations did not lead anywhere, or any further…

We temporary “local expats” would eat such as molokhiya, a rather slimy but oddly tasty soup made mainly from green vegetables (jute leaves); more often we might have falafel, and maybe drink helba, a kind of yellow-green herbal tea made from fenugreek (Siwa was dry in both senses).

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

https://www.inside-egypt.com/health-in-a-cup.html

So what about those Jews? They were tourists from Israel, travelling in a group. Students. There seemed to be about 8 of them. None of them seemed to be overtly attached. The girls were quiet, pleasant, modest; the boys slightly less quiet. Only one was extremely unpleasant, a transplanted New York Jew aged about 25, with beard and carrying at all times a thick and obviously unread paperback about “the holocaust”. I cannot recall the exact title, something about the SS and “holocaust”. This particular Jew was studying at some university at Jerusalem and within minutes had marked me as a probable enemy! My copy of Alan Clark’s Barbarossa probably triggered his interest.

The others in that Israeli group, in discussion with other tourists (including my French “girlfriend” who never became a girlfriend), seemed to be reasonable in that they were not looking for war with the Arab world, but of course the unspoken elephant in the room was the historical basis: the migration of millions of Jews to British Mandate Palestine and later Israel, which displaced the previous occupants.

Still, in that milieu, by the “camp-fire”, one could briefly believe in an Arab-Israeli concordat. Only the presence, at times, of the American Jew Zionist fanatic, disturbed that pacific fantasy. He personified the Zionist fanatics who never quite get around to moving permanently from New York, Los Angeles or London to “Eretz Israel”, yet they are the ones who, as much or more than the “native” Israelis, push the hardline Zionist agenda. Look at the recent film featuring the former heads of MOSSAD, Shin Beth etc. They seem, in principle, less warlike than both the American (etc) “diasporic” Jew fanatics and Israel’s own political leaders.

[I am going to post that reminiscence separately as well]

A quiet end to the day

News from the “broken society”

I suspect that the judge, in the case reported below, had some sympathy for the defendant. So do I. There is far too much anti-social behaviour around, and the police are usually not very useful. I think that the lady in question was quite right, in the circumstances.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/mum-mowed-down-teens-threatened-21291400

News from Labour

The newspapers in a flurry because Rebecca Long-Bailey seems to be in the lead, ahead of ex-DPP Keir Starmer. As already blogged, I have little time for any of the candidates, but the two I most want binned and humiliated are Jess Phillips and Lisa Nandy. Overall, Rebecca Long-Bailey is probably the best from a policy point of view at least, but in a terribly poor field.

Voter migration 2017-2019

That is an interesting graphic. From it can be seen Labour’s haemorrhage of support quite clearly.

The Conservatives stood firm, gaining few new voters but still more than they lost; more Brexit Leavers migrating Lab to Con than Brexit Remainers migrating Con to LibDem.

The 4-point upswing in the LibDem popular vote is seen to be entirely Remainer dissidents from both Lab and Con, together with some 2017-non-voting Remainers.

While Labour did lose former (2017) voters, i.e. Leave supporters, to both Conservative Party and Brexit Party, and almost as many Remain supporters to the LibDems, almost as many former Labour voters as all of those defectors simply did not vote at all in 2019. What is especially interesting is that those former Labour voters who did not vote at all in 2019 were split about 50-50 between Remain and Leave.

What that means, to me, is that a very great number of people who used to vote Labour found it unsuitable in 2019 not because it was pro or anti the EU, but for other reasons. We are talking about somewhere in the region of a million people who voted Labour in 2017 but who did not vote at all in 2019. About 2.7 million fewer people voted Labour in 2019 as compared to 2017. Almost half of of those did not vote at all in 2019. So at least a million, maybe nearly 1,250,000.

What do these dynamics mean for the short or medium term? One problem is that we do not know all of the facts. Some former Labour voters defected to the Con Party or Brexit Party because those voters supported Brexit, but others obviously could not support Con Party or Brexit Party for other reasons. They at least could perhaps be called “social national” voters without a home. 500,000-600,000 people.

Brexit, even if probably in a messed-up, disorganized way, is going ahead. Remain is a dead duck politically. Brexit will not be a factor in the next general election, except in residual ways. That means that, inter alia, the LibDems are toast.

About a third of the new 2019 LibDem voters were Remainers who were previously Con, Lab or non-voting. Now that Brexit is set to leave the political agenda, at least as an In/Out question, those voters will ebb away. At the same time, the concentrations of LibDem support in a small number of constituencies are diffusing, but the LibDems have no real national narrative to tell, while the paucity of MPs (11 at present) means that the pool of potential leaders is a mere puddle. Finally, the proposed boundary changes and reduction of MP numbers from 650 to 600 will kill off at least half a dozen LibDem seats anyway. Result— misery and probable annihilation.

I admit that I have been predicting LibDem annihilation for 9+ years, but in my defence I can only plead that I underestimated the stupidity of the electorate or some of it. I also underestimated the effect of the UK’s effectively rigged political system. Where else but to the LibDems could the voters go if unwilling to vote Con or Lab? Only to UKIP or Brexit Party. Controlled opposition. I do think, now, that the fateful hour is approaching for LibDemmery. Their vague “centrism” and “let’s all be nice in society” messaging rang very hollow after the terrible things done by the Con Coalition, in which now-binned Jo Swinson was a junior minister.

The Con Coalition killed the LibDems, or rather mortally-wounded them. The LibDems are slowly dying from the effects of 2010-2015.

The frontrunner for next LibDem leader is Ed Davey, who was a Cabinet minister in the Con Coalition. Not really likely to revive the LibDems, though a more substantial figure than Jo Swinson (whose recent elevation to the Lords, after having been chucked out by the voters of her Commons constituency, has probably irritated voters generally even more). Looking at the other LibDem MPs, one sees the problem in finding even a halfway-suitable leader!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberal_Democrats_(UK)#Current_MPs

Another point to remember is that the turnout in 2019 was about 67%. Nearly 33% of eligible voters (in round figures, about 16 million people) did not vote. There are yet others who are eligible but who are not registered. Could there be a political position that would attract the allegiance of that 16M-strong or maybe 20M-strong bloc?

Interesting to see that the Greens, though basically a joke-party, managed to attract Brexit-unaligned voters who had not voted in 2017. Seems to me that, in part, that was a protest vote against the lack of choice.

Labour is hopeless at present, with no decent leader in sight and policies which are partly-popular but also partly deeply unpopular (eg mass immigration laxity). Its traditional base is ebbing away and its new foundations in the black and South Asian “communities” are not so solid.

Labour seems not to want to turn to the truths that everyone else, pretty much, sees: such as that mass immigration has destroyed decent pay, benefits, and has crowded schools, NHS, prisons etc. Labour wants to say that “unions are the answer” when they were not even the answer 30 years ago!

What about the Conservatives? Their new seats are not theirs by tradition or custom. The roots are very shallow. They are a government by default, who won the recent General Election by default. Labour might have had a chance were it not for the Jew-dominated hate barrage put up over 4 years and intensified during the campaign. However, that was only part of the story. The other part was Labour as it actually is. Diane Abbott as proposed Home Secretary? A West Indian woman who scarcely knows what day it is, who cannot put the right shoe on the right foot, who cannot add up…it just goes on! Oh, and who has made plain her hatred for the British people again and again.

Labour just did not look like a credible government. Even compared to Boris-idiot’s “Conservatives”. It did not hit hard enough against the Israel lobby that was behind the anti-Labour msm barrage either. Since the campaign and election, one of the sinister “Campaign Against Antisemitism” bastards, one Joe Glasman, even posted a triumphalist clip (he looked drugged or drunken) on Twitter (it is deleted now, I read) in which he admitted that the Jews beat Labour through msm links, “spies and intel” and a relentless focus on negative attacks on Corbyn especially. Indeed, he revelled in “his” victory.

The Conservative victory was won without having had to oppose a credible opponent (made still less credible by the Jewish-lobby publicity campaign and by its own flaws). Another factor was the weaponization of Brexit. 52% wanted Brexit in 2016 and even if the mismanagement etc had reduced that to perhaps 45% or 50% by December 2019, that 45%-50% was still more than the Conservative voting intention of earlier in the year, that stood in the 35%-40% range. It was that Brexit factor that augmented the Conservative lead.

2022/2024? Completely open. If a social national party exists by then, it might gain huge support. True, the political system is rigged via FPTP voting, carefully-drawn constituency boundaries etc, not to mention the msm, but if such a party has elections as a stratagem, not an end, such a party might still triumph eventually via other roads to glory…

An enemy of the truly European future

The Coudenhove-Kalergi idea again. How anyone could believe that a white Northern European population is less creative and has fewer evolutionary possibilities than, say, the populations of Nigeria, Congo, Brazil etc is hard to understand except in terms of multikulti brainwashing. Judge the trees by their fruits.

It would also be good if scientists who tweet could use “too” and not “to” when they mean “too”…

Ah, mystery solved. Our “scientist” is a former lifeguard and waiter, who later worked in IT and is now a lecturer at a couple of former polytechnics:

Harry and the Royal Mulatta

A tweet or two.

That last tweet hits the nail on the head. “He who would be first must be the servant of all”. The Queen understands that, at least in principle, but the younger royals feel only the entitlement, not the obligation. Some were always like that, of course. Princess Margaret. Prince Andrew. Edward Fag-End (as the Anglo-Saxons might have named him). Now we have this pair of msm “celebrities”.

An older sort of monarchy would have loaded their camels with gold (if they were lucky) and then banished them forever to a far kingdom. I suppose that, in a sense, that is what was done with Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson after 1936.

This marriage has tarnished the whole concept of British Royalty in a way never done before, certainly not so openly.

Update, 8 February 2021

Looking at the above blog post a year on in time, I think that it has held up well. Even the fact that the idea to reduce MP numbers from 650 to 600 in time for the next General Election has been binned changes little. The LibDems are still a dead duck, in my view.

Diary Blog, 20 December 2019

I suppose that the headline for me would be that Boris-idiot has already shown signs of weaselling on some of his empty promises, though covering up that with lots of noisy hullabaloo. The part-Jew public entertainer again, this time in his most challenging comedy-drama role, as Prime Minister of the UK. His mistakes as Mayor of London were on a correspondingly smaller scale.

He has to call upon more serious noise to disguise his deficiencies this time, not just a cable-car over the Thames or a garden bridge over the river, promoted by a charming actress who, however, really should steer clear of government policy.

Joanna Lumley’s previous policy disaster was when she “shamed” the then Labour government into allowing not only retired Gurkha soldiers into the UK but their entire extended families. The result? Aldershot is now a Nepalese town (the inhabitants mostly living off State benefits). It is not now an Army town as it once was.

Ironically, the Gurkha retirees (whose pensions were previously upgraded to the British Army norm) would have been far better off living in Nepal, a very poor country where such pension monies go a long way.

Boris-idiot was not responsible for the Gurkha mistake, but he was responsible for the cable-car and the Garden Bridge, which —like “Boris Island” Airport— were not necessary and were unworkable as planned. I have nothing against either cable-cars or garden bridges in principle though. Also, what is the Boris obsession with the Thames?

Boris-idiot, we are told, “does not do detail”. Meaning that his mind is on the lofty outlines of grand strategy. I suppose some poor saps believe that nonsense. The greatest leaders of the 20thC were interested, at least up to a point, in detail. That lack of interest was what sank all three projects noted above.

The cable-car was built partly at public expense but carries only a few regular passengers per day (it was planned for commuter use but in fact is now just a tourist attraction). “There has also been criticism of the project’s £24 million-plus cost to taxpayers, caused by a budget overrun. Boris Johnson, the former Mayor of London, had said the cost of the scheme would not be underwritten by taxpayers.”[Wikipedia]

As for the Garden Bridge, it was a lovely idea but was poorly-planned (the Boris leitmotiv). Wrong place, arguably, for one thing.

On 14 August 2017 after months of uncertainty the Garden Bridge Trust entirely abandoned the project. The BBC London transport correspondent Tom Edwards described the situation as a shambles which was “an embarrassing mess for the capital … already descend[ing] into finger pointing and a blame game over who is culpable for wasting £46.4m of public money”.[75] In February 2019 it was revealed that the total public cost had been £43m.”

Boris Island. Never got far beyond the cartoon brain of Boris-idiot. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-35855676

We can add to the above the water-cannon “Boris” ordered after his panicky (lack of) performance during the 2011 black riots in London. Scrapped and sold for peanuts. Another Boris disaster, though on a smaller scale; this time “only” £300,000 was lost. Still, the water-cannon did their job: not dealing with rioters, but getting Boris-idiot publicity as the man who wants to “get things done” (a completely mistaken view, of course).

Then there were the Boris-buses:

https://www.cityam.com/a-brief-history-of-boris-and-buses/

You get the picture: Boris cannot plan anything, his ideas are rubbish, just schoolboy nonsense, he has no executive ability to get anything done properly, and he leaves the public with a headache and a bill.

A musical interlude:

and now to the Labour leadership contest

I shall blog separately about this once all the runners and riders have been listed.

In the meantime, a few tweets seen:

System drone Stephen Kinnock. An atheist. Shooed into a safe Welsh Labour seat, his wife a former Prime Minister of Denmark, he himself given, inter alia, a nice little sinecure at the British Council in St. Petersburg (via his father, ex-Labour leader and EU Commissioner Neil “We’re All Right!” Kinnock). Completely System, completely NWO/ZOG. A nasty little freeloader.

Clive Lewis is standing for the position of Labour leader. I saw this tweet by the Novara Media person Aaron Bastani:

Well, I have just read that piece. I cannot see anything of substance in what Clive Lewis says. Soundbite stuff about “democratizing the party” and about how “climate change” and “technological change” will define the next UK general election.

Underwhelming, like Lewis himself. His record is not inspiring. A “half-caste”, he read Economics at Bradford, but has never worked in that field. He spent time as a security guard before getting work as a local and regional journalist. He also held (2006-2009) commissioned rank in the Territorial Army, presumably as 2nd Lieutenant (unconfirmed; his eventual rank may have been higher). He was in Afghanistan for three months in 2009, but returned to the UK suffering from depression.

Lewis is MP for the relatively safe Labour seat of South Norwich.

There have been accusations of Lewis shouting inappropriate sexual jokes when drunk, and also of him groping at least one woman. He has also made other inappropriate remarks, usually of a sexual nature (e.g. one involving Ed Miliband and a goat).

My provisional view: underwhelming. Clive Lewis is not fully British for a start. Apart from that, his character seems weak to me. A loose cannon, not very trustworthy. On the face of it, could not hack Afghanistan for long and had a kind of breakdown. Whether that means that he could not fulfil a Labour leadership or, potentially, prime ministerial role, I do not know, but I doubt it and think that others might have similar doubts. Ideologically shallow. Unsuitable.

Having said the above, Clive Lewis’s pitch to the Labour rank and file (who will elect the leader in the end) is clever. It offers those rank and file members more —and more direct— power. That might be persuasive. Revolution in the revolution?

Another musical interlude…

Labour again…

I can see why many people are just laughing at the Labour leadership contest, after the recent election fiasco. However, the fact is that more than three-quarters of the 2017 Labour vote stayed with Labour: 32.2% as against 40%. Also, the demographics favour Labour in the medium term. As mentioned in previous blogs, had only under-25s voted, there would not be a single Conservative Party MP now. In fact, had only under-40s voted, most seats would be Labour, and even if only under-60s had voted, there might now be a Labour government.

Whoever wins the Labour leadership contest now may well head a Labour government in 2024, 2023 or even 2022.

Stray thoughts

Driving around the semi-flooded coastal part of Southern England in the dark this evening, it was incredible to experience how bad the roads are. Huge potholes, a feeling of disrepair. My car is fairly large, with large tyres, but these days it becomes necessary to drive something like a Range Rover just to smooth the ride! Thank God that I do not have false teeth!

Now it seems that this miserable new regime will press ahead with the HS2 white elephant, when the North of England needs regional railways and the South needs repair of the roads, which are degenerating into a 17thC condition. An exaggeration, but not a complete one.

The more I think about the state of the UK, the more I think that it will be fortunate to avoid either a repressive dystopia (following on perhaps from a chaotic one) or (and/or) some kind of civil war somewhere down the line.
