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.

Belated Saturday quiz

I forgot about the i paper quiz yesterday. So here it is:

Image

Only 5/10 this week, though I still beat John Rentoul (again); he only scored 4/10. I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 8, 9, and 10 (could not remember what LED —exactly— means, and I hit the post on the Battle of Bannockburn, knowing that it was Edward I’s successor but not knowing who the hell that was).

The reference there is to Paul Halloran, the candidate at Batley and Spen of the “Heavy Woollen District Independents” in the 2019 General Election: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batley_and_Spen_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s. He scored 12.2%, a very creditable result. I mentioned the fact in my blog post of yesterday about the upcoming Batley and Spen by-election (1 July 2021): https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/06/04/the-batley-and-spen-by-election-2021/.

It seems that the said Halloran has now joined the no-chance Reclaim Party set up by the actor Laurence Fox, who now stands for free speech (except, it seems, where Jews disapprove or are mentioned). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Fox.

Halloran, Fox, and Reclaim Party have issued a statement: https://mailchi.mp/a466726a0fd3/media-statement-the-reclaim-party-and-paul-halloran?e=d4fb63896d.

https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/paul-halloran-wont-standing-batley-20751008

It is clear that Reclaim Party will never amount to anything. As far as the Batley and Spen by-election in July is concerned, the stand-aside will obviously help the Conservative candidate, but what is unknown is by how many votes. Halloran received 12.2% of the vote in 2019, true, but Fox, in the recent London Mayoral Election, only 1.9%.

I suppose that it might be surmised that Halloran, had he stood at Batley, might have garnered 5% of the by-election vote, possibly 10%, and maybe even 15%+, but the fact is that that is pure speculation. We do not know.

What we do know is that the above news is probably a blow for Labour. A few percent might decide this contest.

Chesham and Amersham by-election 2021

The Chesham and Amersham by-election is set down for 17 June 2021. It has been occasioned by the death of the sitting member, Cheryl Gillan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheryl_Gillan].

I usually abide by the maxim de mortuis nihil nisi bonum (“[say] nothing but good of the [recent] dead”) but the fact is that the recently-deceased MP was little better than a persistent and outright thief [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheryl_Gillan#Expenses] who defrauded the taxpayer out of far more than was explicitly exposed during the 2009 expenses scandal.

As to the constituency, this is rock-solid Conservative Party territory, situated at the suburban and semi-rural Northern joint termini of the Metropolitan Line.

Since the seat was created in 1974, the Conservatives have held it, at first with Ian Gilmour [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Gilmour,_Baron_Gilmour_of_Craigmillar] and then with Cheryl Gillan, who “inherited” the seat in 1992.

The lowest ebb of Conservative Party fortunes at Chesham and Amersham was 1997, but even in that year of “Labour landslide” the Conservative vote held up at 50.4%. The high-water mark was the 1992 General Election (63.3%). Even the expenses scandal did not dent Cheryl Gillan’s vote (60.4% in 2010).

Second place in elections at Chesham and Amersham has usually gone to the Liberal Democrats, but UKIP (2015, 13.7%) and Labour (2017, 20.6%) have also featured.

The LibDem vote-share fell to only 9% (and a fourth-place) in the debacle of 2015, but recovered to 13% in 2017, and to 26.3% in 2019.

As for Labour, its low point was 2010 (5.6%), and its high point 2017 (20.6%).

Eight candidates contest the by-election, the other five being Green Party, Reform Party UK, Freedom Alliance, Breakthrough Party, and Rejoin EU.

Green Party got 5.5% at Chesham and Amersham in 2019.

Reform Party UK is the rump of Brexit Party, and scored 1% in the most recent London Assembly elections.

Rejoin EU managed to get a vote of 1.1% in the 2021 London Mayoral election. Its by-election candidate is Brendan Donnelly [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan_Donnelly_(politician)], a one-time employee at the Foreign Office, who became a Conservative Party MEP in 1994, then left the Conservative Party, stood again in 1999 under the banner of the short-lived “Pro-Euro Conservative Party” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pro-Euro_Conservative_Party], failed to be re-elected, and thereafter became a serial and unsuccessful pro-EU election candidate under several flags.

Freedom Alliance is a reaction to the toytown police state created by the 2020 Coronavirus events, and is based in Huddersfield [https://freedomalliance.co.uk/], though its Chesham and Amersham by-election candidate is a former Green Party councillor who lives in High Wycombe [https://freedomalliance.co.uk/england-candidates/].

As for Breakthrough Party, it describes itself as “a democratic socialist party, led by the younger generations...” [https://breakthroughparty.org.uk/]; https://www.thecanary.co/feature/2021/04/18/a-new-political-party-wants-a-breakthrough-for-young-people/. Its by-election candidate is Carla Gregory, aged 31, a charity worker: https://www.nationalworld.com/news/politics/chesham-and-amersham-by-election-mum-of-two-standing-for-new-breakthrough-party-to-be-voice-of-unheard-3241528.

The main interest in the by-election will be that of seeing how low Labour will sink.

Well, Hitchens is sometimes worth noting, but I have to say that when I had a Twitter account (a pack of Jew-Zionists had me expelled in 2018), Hitchens blocked me mainly if not entirely because he saw that I knew more than him. My later assessment of him: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/.

Not new, of course. I wrote the following blog post over two years ago, and about a Daily Telegraph article itself written in 2012: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/02/04/white-flight-in-a-small-country/.

NWO. ZOG. The Great Reset. It’s happening right in front of our eyes, yet the majority, perhaps the vast majority, are unaware, or think it is just something to do with a virus that has killed about one in a thousand British people (and even fewer worldwide)…

Fabricant, of course, is a Jew, and was at one time an employee or agent of SIS.

British foreign aid cuts

There is a case for foreign aid. It rests, in its purest form, on charity or compassion, just like social welfare, free medical care etc in the UK domestic context. In less obviously pure form, foreign aid can be regarded as an incident of “soft power” and diplomacy.

Having said that, much foreign aid is misapplied, wasted, or stolen. I could give examples from my own overseas experience.

On BBC TV News, I saw today some woman talking (from her own rather comfortable-looking home) about the recent decision to further cut foreign aid. She was one of the directors of the long-established charity, Save the Children, which —subject to correction— I think was founded in or at the end of the First World War.

Some reading this may recall that, after the Jo Cox assassination in 2016, it came to light that the husband of that MP, the (I always thought, seeing him on TV etc) rather thuggish Brendan Cox, was exposed as a sex pest and quasi-rapist. Well, what interested me more was the fact that (if I recall aright), as something like third in command of Save the Children, Brendan Cox was being paid something like £200,000 pa. Not bad for someone with a very underwhelming academic and other background. Worse, the actual head of Save the Children was getting over £300,000 (in fact, from memory, it was nearly £400,000).

Not that I think that the head of a large organization, even a charitable one, should not be paid decently or even well, bearing in mind the skills required and responsibility held, but all the same it sits unpleasantly to see people donating pennies, or hard-scrabbled pounds, while the fat cats at the top of the tree get hundreds of thousands of pounds (and expenses) every year.

The world of international aid charities is a rotten borough. I once met a woman who was getting very well paid indeed (the equivalent of maybe £100,000 a year in today’s money), for about 2-3 days a week working for DFID as a “consultant”; she had some academic job as well. She told me that she had even been offered more money, about double, working for the UN Food and Agriculture Organization [FAO] in Rome. Her job title? [would be] “expert in food poverty”!

There’s something unclean about all that. Carpetbagging hypocrisy.

The latest news (as yet unconfirmed) about the persecuted satirist and singer is that her appeal against conviction and sentence will take place on 13 August 2021. As said, this is as yet unconfirmed. The appeal had been set down for the two days of 3-4 June 2021, but was adjourned at the request of the Crown. It may be that the appeal will now be more narrowly focussed, i.e. focussed on strictly legal arguments, and that that is why it seems now to be set down for only one day.

In the past, little happened in the courts in August, but that was then.

Diary Blog, 28 May 2021, including thoughts about Sir Roger Casement

Historical inaccuracy about Sir Roger Casement

Switching on Radio 4 late at night, just before it switches to BBC World Service, I heard the Irish politician or ex-politician, Mary McAleese [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_McAleese], reading some of her memoirs.

I was surprised to hear Mrs McAleese say that Sir Roger Casement [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Casement] had been executed for treason “because of his support for the Easter Rising.” Not so.

Casement was put on trial for treason because, as a British subject (indeed, he had been a civil servant, first at the Colonial Office and then at the Foreign Office) he had committed various acts which were not only adjudged treasonous in the First World War but which would still be, on similar facts, today. Indeed, in WW2, some others were executed for far less. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Casement#Capture,_trial,_and_execution

William Joyce [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Joyce] was hanged merely for having broadcast from Germany [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_Haw-Haw].

The last statement of William Joyce: “In death as in life, I defy the Jews who caused this last war, and I defy the power of darkness which they represent. I warn the British people against the crushing imperialism of the Soviet Union. May Britain be great once again and in the hour of the greatest danger in the West may the standard be raised from the dust, crowned with the words – “You have conquered nevertheless”. I am proud to die for my ideals and I am sorry for the sons of Britain who have died without knowing why.”

It is not generally known that dozens of other actually-British people (Joyce’s nationality was and remains disputed) who broadcast from the Reich during WW2 were either not prosecuted or received short prison sentences. In other words, in Joyce’s case, as in that of Casement, political rather than legal expediences proved determinative.

John Amery [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Amery], who was hanged after WW2, did more or less the same as had Casement in WW1. He toured POW camps trawling for potential recruits etc. Indeed, Casement did more than that and, after all, was eventually arrested (by a solitary sergeant of the Royal Irish Constabulary) after having been landed ashore —awaiting an arms drop— on the “lonely Banna Strand”, from a German U-boat. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Casement#Irish_revolutionary.

[the “lonely Banna Strand”, where Sir Roger Casement was landed from a German U-boat in 1916]

In fact, the Irish rebels’ operation was a total botch: “Casement did not learn about the Easter Rising until after the plan was fully developed. The German weapons never landed in Ireland; the Royal Navy intercepted the ship transporting them, a German cargo vessel named the Libau, disguised as a Norwegian vessel, Aud-Norge. All the crew were German sailors, but their clothes and effects, even the charts and books on the bridge, were Norwegian.[citation needed] As John Devoy had either misunderstood or disobeyed Pearse’s instructions[citation needed] that the arms were under no circumstances to land before Easter Sunday, the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union (TGWU) members set to unload the arms under the command of Irish Citizen Army officer and trade unionist William Partridge were not ready. The IRB men sent to meet the boat drove off a pier and drowned.” [Wikipedia]

It can be seen that, however unfortunate in many ways Casement was, Mrs McAleese’s statement that he was hanged, as her memoirs seem to imply, simply because he “supported” the Easter Rising, seems to me to be disingenuous at best.

Until I looked her up on Wikipedia yesterday, I knew nothing much about Mrs McAleese. Seems that she was appointed a professor of laws at Trinity College, Dublin, when only 24 years of age, failed to get elected as a would-be politician, but was eventually adopted as Fianna Fail candidate for the Presidency of Ireland; she served two terms (14 years).

Casement, though not much known by the general public these days in England, is still a major historical figure in Ireland.

In the real sense (not the formal legal sense), what the LibLabCon-men (and women) have done in the past half-century is far more treasonous than whatever Sir Roger Casement did; and he was hanged for it…

While I certainly agree with Cummings (and have blogged so from the start) that Boris-idiot is unfit to be Prime Minister, Cummings is himself a personification of the crazy way in which Britain is run. Are there other countries where a person with effectively no track record could become such a power behind the political throne?

A degree in History, a few unsuccessful years trying to make money in Russia (including an airline which only made one flight), then an office bod at Conservative Party HQ for a number of years, then…all but running the UK’s administration.

I shall blog another day about the upcoming Batley and Spen by-election. My first thought about Galloway’s candidature is that he is a busted flush, with no real chance of even saving his deposit. On the other hand, if the by-election is as close as it might be (i.e. as close as I, provisionally, think that it might be), then Galloway getting, say, 2% might be the difference between a Conservative win and a Labour win.

Labour Party

The latest opinion polling:

Labour continues to bump along almost at the bottom of major-party credibility. As I have blogged often previously, Labour’s problem was not Corbyn, as such; neither is it Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer, as such. It stems more from Labour’s disappearing traditional base, and from Labour’s now almost invisible identity.

The opinion poll above does not show Conservative Party popularity so much as Labour Party unpopularity, of course. The point is, for what does Labour stand? Anything? As many have said, half-joking, it seems to be something akin to “workhouses are good, but we say let’s run them efficiently, and more fairly”. I do not think that that will attract many voters.

Of course, there are still pockets of die-hard Labour right-or-wrong support around. The sort of old-style Northern English tribalism that can be seen on TV in the Daily Mirror journalist Kevin Maguire (who in fact lives in some comfort in London).

That kind of ping-pong, cuckoo clock Con-Lab-Con-Lab politics is so out of date now. Especially when the policies of the supposed political rivals are almost identical.

In July, there will be held the Batley and Spen by-election. Labour is putting up the sister of the assassinated MP, Jo Cox, which MP has been all but canonized by the msm since her death in 2016.

I shall blog about the by-election when all runners and riders are in the frame, but what occurs to me at this stage is how desperate Labour must be to select as candidate someone purely because her sister was assassinated. Labour obviously hopes for some kind of sympathy vote, or “solidarity” vote. I doubt that it will work, but we shall have to see. Labour really has no other card to play.

Reality v. semblance

I have blogged about aspects of allied nonsense of that sort in the past: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/11/15/when-reality-becomes-subjective/

“Lockdown” and facemask nonsense

Nearly a third of all prosecutions brought under Covid-19 laws in the first year of the pandemic were incorrectly charged, a review has found…Police forces around the UK were handed powers by the government last March to enforce the ‘stay at home’ message and break up large gatherings of people…Officers were also empowered to prosecute people for breaking lockdown, not wearing masks on public transport, throwing house parties, and meeting in the street in groups.

However a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) review of court cases which had been concluded by March 31 this year found that 549 out of 1,821 had been incorrectly charged…Every one of the 270 prosecutions brought under the Coronavirus Act 2020 – which granted powers to direct infectious people into quarantine – had either been abandoned or convictions overturned.

The review also found that the wrong offences contained in a myriad of versions of the Health Protection regulations had been deployed by police officers.

The problems with the use of coronavirus offences were first identified last April, just days into the pandemic, when journalists noticed that a woman had been wrongly prosecuted and convicted under the Coronavirus Act in Newcastle.

The review found the Health Protection regulations had also been misapplied by police, using out-of-date rules and making mistakes such as deploying an offence specific to Wales for a London prosecution.

The review found that 1,272 of the 1,551 Health Protection regulation cases had been correctly charged, with some prosecutions abandoned due to insufficient evidence.

More than 1,000 Covid-19 cases have been brought to courts through the Single Justice Procedure, which allows a magistrate to deal with the case administratively instead of at an open court hearing.

Those cases are not reviewed at court by a prosecutor, and are instead processed by police forces.” [Evening Standard].

So once again the police failed to know, understand, and properly apply laws and regulations and, in this case, conflating these with (supposed) “rules”, and with cretinous “advice” given out by politicians and their ridiculous advisers.

Gaza

I lived on and off in the USA, mostly in the early 1990s though I did also spend time there in 1999, 2001 and 2002. Many Americans are fine people, but the mass media there is almost, not quite, 100% owned and operated by Jews. TV, radio, film, newspapers, magazines, book publishing. Americans have little choice but to see the world largely through the Jewish, Zionist, and Israeli lens. Fact. They are also brainwashed from childhood with “holocaust” propaganda and fake history.

The biggest mistake that anyone can make is to say “the Israeli Jews do terrible things to the Palestinians but Jews in Britain are different”. There are, admittedly, some nuances, cultural overlays etc, but the main difference is that the ones in the UK do not (yet) have total power over us.

Matthew Parris and the “tinkers”

I am a long way ideologically etc from Matthew Parris, but he does occasionally enunciate truths which few others in the msm or Westminster political milieu will say. Example, from his Times column:

Image

For once (?) Parris is kinder than me! His basic thesis is, however, correct.

Parris’s column has caused a big kefuffle: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9583091/Liberal-commentator-Matthew-Parris-calls-blanket-ban-Travellers.html

It used to be said in the USA that a conservative-minded person was just a liberal-minded person who had been mugged!

I recall that old hypocrite and humbug, Michael Foot [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Foot], so beloved of the BBC, changing his pro-“Traveller” tune pretty quickly once a pack of them parked their caravans by his opulent detached and Listed house on Hampstead Heath.

I recall an amusing cartoon about that in a newspaper of the time, which showed two hedgehogs at night looking at a Gypsy caravan with smoke coming from its chimney; one says to the other, “since they camped on Hampstead Heath, they bake you in muesli”.

In fact, though, the old Romanies who sometimes ate baked hedgehog were not the same as modern “Travellers”, who are mostly of Irish origin and, as Anna Soubry, below, says, mostly not rural-dwellers:

I should never have imagined that the former MP for Plymouth and Angostura (or somewhere) would agree with me on any subject! God does indeed move in mysterious ways…

Well, this week, I again beat John Rentoul. He scored 5/10, but I trumped that with 7/10. The answers that I did not get were those to questions 2, 6, and 10.

There were also protests in London, one major one (perhaps 150,000-strong) against the slaughter being once again perpetrated by Jews against defenceless Palestinians, the other (also quite large, maybe 100,000-strong) by people who want an end to the ridiculous and unnecessary “panicdemic” “rules” and “measures”.

As in the mass media of the socialist world before 1989, the mainstream media in the West are now ignoring what they want to muffle or stifle. Dangerous tactics— people are starting to get very angry. Justly so.

Some Israeli Jews show their true colours…

Most of them look incapable of doing anything themselves, for all their callous and cruel big talk. If a squad of SS suddenly came around the corner, they would run quickly enough!

Look at the ancient “Israel”, as seen in the Old Testament: slaughter of whole tribes and nations was mandated and carried out. What we today would call “genocide”. Ideas ingrained over thousands of years…

Anne Boleyn was as black as the ace of spades!

Well, no, she wasn’t, in fact:

…but that does not prevent our (((occupied))) mass media from pretending that she was! Or that it does not matter. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/life/jodie-turner-smith-playing-anne-boleyn-should-allowed-tell-story/

Jodie Turner-Smith as Anne Boleyn opposite Mark Stanley’s Henry VIII

So not only a black woman but a rather plain one, and one who was brought up from age 9 in the USA. Why a black actress playing Anne Boleyn? Oh, yes, she says that it is just “a story“. She and her supporters say that race should not matter. Really? Oh, well… next up, a white man (with or without “blackface”) playing the role of, say, Nelson Mandela. Oh, no, wait…

The above tweet refers to fanatical Jew-Zionist trolls on Twitter, particularly Steven Silverman of South Essex (currently tweeting as @ssilvuk), and Stephen Applebaum of Watford/Edgware (currently tweeting as, inter alia, @grubstreetsteve and @rattus2384). Both exposed in open court as secret trollers and harassers of anti-Zionists, mostly women.

Both of the above are active members of the malicious Jew-Zionist organization known as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, or “CAA”. Silverman is also an office-holder in that cabal, and styles himself “Head of Investigations and Enforcement”. Shin Beth-lite?

As seen above, Applebaum also excuses Jewish terrorism, such as the 1946 bombing of the King David Hotel, Jerusalem, in which at least 91 people were killed, and dozens of others suffered serious injury: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_David_Hotel_bombing

He is still excusing, on Twitter, Jewish (sub nom Israeli) state terrorism too.

The UK mass media is so (((occupied))) these days that most British people are left entirely unaware of how Jewish and/or Israeli terrorists have targeted them.

Below, Jewish terrorism before “Israel” as a state even existed—

British soldiers hanged by fanatical yet cowardly Jew Zionist terrorists…see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sergeants_affair.

The organization that hanged the British soldiers was called Irgun, which was headed by the Jew terrorist Menachem Begin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menachem_Begin#Jewish_underground]. That Jew also ordered the bombing of the King David Hotel [see above].

Begin became Prime Minister of Israel in 1977. The Irgun terror outfit later became part of two political parties that were very similar, Herut and Likud, the latter of which is presently the governing party in Israel.

Israel is a state founded on terror, led by terrorists and murderers, and the only difference between 2021 and 1947 is that the terrorists are now the state, or part of the state.

The MPs do not fear the voters, as voters. As to what the freeloading bastards do fear…well, I think that at this point I shall not say more, in case some typical 2021 malicious creature denounces me to the authorities, which would (again) be very boring.

What does Hitchens want? A medal? I was saying all that before him, but am not making a good (or any) living out of it.

I disagree strongly with Hitchens when he writes, in his column today, that he is “glad that antisemitism is so unpopular today“. He ought to be a little consistent, and see what element is (not entirely but to a large extent) behind the very trends that he writes or rants about! Who does he imagine controls most of the UK mass media, to name just one crucial area?

Of course, Hitchens is part-Jew himself: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/.

This country would be a great deal better for a little (more) intelligent and defensive “anti-Semitism”…

What goes around comes around

I heard, on the radio, a weasel from the Israeli Defence Force [IDF] saying how moral and ethical the Israelis are, because before they drop bombs or attack with missiles a residential apartment building, the Jews drop a lesser bomb on it as a “warning”, and sometimes drop leaflets etc in a “get out now” threat. For the Jew, that apparently made it OK…No thought that most of the residents of such a building were uninvolved civilians: families, children, companion animals etc. The Israeli Jews mix brutality and hypocrisy in a most unpleasant way.

BBC World Service

Heard a couple of other reports. The first was a laughably-poor one about repatriation of historical artefacts and so on. The BBC presenter, a black man from London (but from a family background in what is now Zambia) admitted that, prior to the programme, he had never heard of the Elgin Marbles! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elgin_Marbles

Elgin Marbles British Museum.jpg
[the Elgin Marbles, British Museum, London]

Incidentally, the presentation of the Marbles at the British Museum looks more aesthetically-pleasing than when I was last there nearly 30 years ago. Maybe my memory is at fault, though.

On the same BBC World Service show, another African made the point that the wealth of what is now Zambia, the mineral wealth mainly, was “plundered” by the British, without which “plunder” the “Zambians” (i.e. the Africans then living there and their descendants) would have been able to develop a better, more prosperous (etc) society. Ha ha! What nonsense! For one thing, the Africans had no idea of how to mine, refine, or use the product of all that. They did not have any idea that there was anything useful under the ground on which they walked.

The other BBC World Service feature was about a cafe in Innsbruck called Cafe Schindler, once owned by Jews who were bought out (at an undervalue, supposedly) in 1938, after the plebiscite and Anschluss that joined Austria to Germany . They decamped to London.

The granddaughter of the 1930s owner (which owner established or bought the cafe in 1922) has researched her family history extensively. She discovered that her father, who was a fraudulent Jew businessman, and who had said that he had been beaten up in Innsbruck in 1938 by “Nazis”, had in reality been living in London by then (aged 12). In other words, he had told “porkies”…not very kosher!

Apparently, the woman’s father found that a fake “holocaust” connection was a good excuse (in both London and Austria) against allegations of business fraud in the 1960s and 1970s, though he was eventually imprisoned in England. His daughter claimed that one of the reasons why her father never paid his business creditors was because he spent all his money or much of it on lawyers, trying to get “restitution” for value allegedly taken by (yes, you guessed it) “the Nazis”.

Apparently, in the 1960s or 1970s, her father also demanded (and received) non-existent arrears of “rent” for the seven years from 1938 to 1945 from the National Socialist, Franz Hofer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Hofer], who had bought the Cafe Schindler in 1938, and who had turned it into a favourite place for the Innsbruck National Socialists. The “rent” was paid to the Jew by Hofer (who may have been unwell and who died in 1975) “unofficially”, in cash. A form of blackmail, really.

The cafe still exists, under a similar name.

An interesting feature, that made me laugh, was that the presenter seemed to take some of the assertions made as truthful, despite having been made by a Jewish business cheat whose own daughter admits he was a fraudster and serial liar. In fact, I found the daughter’s account rather naive in places, as when she said that her family had to sell in 1938 in order to avoid “being shipped off to Poland“. Well, Germany only invaded Poland in 1939, so…

Rather poor from a well-known journalist. Guderian [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinz_Guderian] was a German officer who was not, however, a member of the NSDAP (National Socialist party). In fact, most German officers were not NSDAP members, though about a third of junior officers were, by 1945.

Krivoshein [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semyon_Krivoshein] however was a member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union [CPSU]. Almost all Soviet officers were, particularly those who, holding the rank of major or above, were considered to be members of the nomenklatura [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nomenklatura].

Hitchens, despite making equivalence between the Reich and the Soviet Union, always seems to me to have more genuine animus against the German Reich, possibly (I speculate) because of his own part-Jewish background [see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/].

Well, why not? After all, Wall Street has a “bull” statue [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charging_Bull], so why should Rockefeller Center not have a “bullshit” statue?…

This must be a first. At almost any time in the near or historical past, a “British” Prime Minister who had handed down against him a County Court money judgment would probably have been forced to resign. It would certainly have been a huge embarrassment. Now? So unworried is the part-Jew chancer now posing as Prime Minister that he has just ignored it for six months!

As I have blogged previously, Boris-idiot has weaponized his own incompetence and sleaze. Almost nothing that he does, or fails to do, counts against him, because the public simply do not expect correct or even ordinarily decent behaviour from “Boris”.

This (the fact that the UK gave Poland in 1939 a “guarantee” that it did not honour and indeed was unable from the start to honour) still resonated when I was last in Poland in 1989.

My answer to the rhetorical question posed by Hitchens is that the Jews (primarily in the sense of “international Jewry” or “the Zionists’ leaders”) wanted war, to destroy Hitler and National Socialism. In Britain, in its ruling circles, there was a “War Party” fronted by Churchill, paid for secretly by the Jews, and that “War Party” included leading civil servants such as Vansittart [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Vansittart,_1st_Baron_Vansittart] and leading System politicians, such as not only Churchill but also Duff Cooper and others [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duff_Cooper].

Diary Blog, 10 May 2021, with thoughts about Rachel Reeves and the floundering Labour Party

Morning music

Labour “getsmuchworse”

I happened to see the tweet below, which mentions events from eight years ago.

Now Rachel Reeves is back in the news, having been appointed Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer by Jewish-lobby puppet Keir Starmer.

What do we know about Rachel Reeves? Wikipedia has this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachel_Reeves.

I have been trying to discover whether Rachel Reeves is part-Jewish. No firm conclusion, though my instinct says yes. Be that as it may, the Labour Party is something of a family business for Rachel Reeves and her sister Ellie [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellie_Reeves]: both Labour Party MPs, and the sister, Ellie Reeves, is married to another Labour MP, John Cryer [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Cryer].

All are pro-Israel, as far as I have been able to discover. Certainly Rachel Reeves is. She is the Vice-Chair of Labour Friends of Israel, supports the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation, and has even written one chapter of a book which was effectively Israeli propaganda.

Rachel Reeves is married to one Nicholas Joicey, a former Treasury civil servant who is currently Finance Director-General at the Department of Work and Pensions [DWP]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Joicey. He was at one time speechwriter for Gordon Brown.

A few indicators to Rachel Reeves’ character and views:

Reeves was named in 2011 by The Guardian newspaper as being one of several MPs who employ unpaid interns, a practice that some maintain may breach the National Minimum Wage Act 1998.” [Wikipedia]

In 2013, she caused controversy, especially among the left-wing members of the Labour Party, by stating that they would be “tougher” than the Conservative Party in cutting benefits.” [Wikipedia]

She caused controversy in early 2015 by stating “We [Labour] don’t want to be seen, and we’re not, the party to represent those who are out of work”.” [Wikipedia]

Reeves’ parliamentary credit card was stopped at the start of 2015, owing to a debt of £4,033.63, which she subsequently repaid.[33] In 2018, she claimed £188,686 in expenses, of which £149,514 was in staffing costs and £22,089 in office costs, £30,422 more than the average parliamentary claim of £158,264.” [Wikipedia]

So there we have it. Once you take away some kind of early-ingrained Labour tribalism, there is nothing “socialist” or even “social-democratic” there. I am not certain that she can even be described as an example of “managerial socialism” or the like, in the latter-day Blair-Brown sense.

Rachel Reeves is an economist, and I am sure that she has no difficulty separating the concept of running a national economy from that of running one’s own domestic finances, but her apparent inability to prevent herself running up (interest-free?) credit card debt (paid for by the taxpayer?) does sit awkwardly both with her new status and with her former pronouncements attacking the unemployed, poor, those on State benefits etc. Particularly as she and her husband (his salary being about £170,000 p.a.) are getting about half a million pounds in pay, expenses and perks annually out of the public purse…

Where does that leave the Labour Party? Up that well-known creek without a paddle, arguably.

As I have repeatedly blogged, the Labour Party now has almost nothing in common with what it was in 1930, 1960, 1990, or even 2000. The same could be said of the Conservative Party, but we are talking about Labour at present.

The Keir Starmer and Rachel Reeves Labour Party will find it hard to appeal to any defined bloc of voters. Even in 2010 (after “Labour” had brought in the ATOS carpetbaggers etc), the poorer sections of society could still view Labour as at least better, less harsh, than the Conservative Party. Now (and now that Corbyn and his supporters have been purged), it is hard to see that voter-demographic as bothering to go out to vote Labour.

Another bloc of voters, those not “affluent” but not actually poor, also probably see nothing to vote for in the Starmer and Reeves Labour Party.

What about the more affluent? Maybe. Some. The metropolitan pro-EU types. Those, maybe. However, they are a minority, a fairly small minority. We have just seen that Labour’s new (supposed) stronghold, London, almost toppled Sadiq Khan from the Mayoralty, despite the fact that the Conservative Party put up a West Indian who was almost a joke candidate.

Labour is said to have a great deal more traction among “the young”, whether that means the under-25s or just under-40s. Perhaps, but whether that will be true now that stale Starmer and Reeves are in control, I wonder. Maybe not.

Labour may find itself reduced to being a niche party for certain black-brown “communities”, and for some of the publicly-paid employees.

Then there is the question of the SNP, the only bloc of MPs likely to give support (on conditions) to any minority Labour government which might be formed somewhere down the line. If Scotland breaks away, that is Labour’s last lifeline gone.

There was much to laugh at in Corbyn-Labour, but this Starmer/Reeves idea of a “managerial”, or “we can run workhouses better!” pseudo-Labourism is doomed from the start.

If Labour wants to have even a semblance of a chance at electoral success, it has to get rid of Starmer, Reeves and their like.

Where Jews exist in any but very small numbers, non-Jews will always be exploited, and can never be free. That is as true in Europe (and including the UK) as it is in the Middle East.

We in the UK are as much occupied as are the Palestinians; the (((control))) in the UK is simply more sophisticated.

So what? What does it matter whether it is “anti-Semitic”? There is nothing wrong with being “anti-Semitic”. Au contraire…

[addendum: I used to have a copy of Margarete Buber-Neumann’s book of her life (up to 1949), Under Two Dictators. She found life as a prisoner under German rule, though hard indeed, far easier than in Stalin’s prisons and labour camps: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margarete_Buber-Neumann; https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.227294]

Non-Jewish but fervently pro-Israel tweeter Emma Picken opines thus:

Perhaps Jerusalem would be more peaceful if Jewish supremacists did not hold an annual “conquerors’ celebration” march through the East Jerusalem Arab Muslim neighbourhoods currently celebrating Ramadan; or if Jews stopped trying to steal the homes of the Arabs (Palestinians) and evict those families so that Jew extremist families can go from Tel Aviv and New York City to live in those stolen houses? Just a thought, as people say…

Interesting. I have to admit that I had not heard of the Yorkshire Party before today.

Good to see that “European Housewife” is still around.

Long long ago, in the mid-1970s, I knew a woman, now I imagine long-deceased, whose maiden name was de Lusignan. The de Lusignans were the Norman rulers of Cyprus about 900 years ago.

That woman, rumoured to be part-Afghan despite the other supposed ancestry, had something of the look of “European Housewife”. I remember her well. I last encountered her when exiting the Aeroflot office in London, sometime in the early/mid 1990s. She was walking down Piccadilly. I would probably not have recognized her, not immediately, but a lady accompanying me did, at a slight distance too. There was a brief conversation on the pavement. The de Lusignan lady was amazed when it was pointed out to her that I was the Ian she had known in 1976. She had not at all recognized me.

What a better world we would all now be living in had the Second World War either not started (on the Western Front especially), or had it stopped in 1940 (after Dunkirk), or even had it stopped, or been limited in its scope, in and after 1941.

Justice, injustice, or vindictiveness?

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

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

The alleged victim apparently suffered considerable injury.

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

Where I find the matter unjust is in the sentence.

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

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

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

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

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

John Rentoul’s quiz tweet of the week

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fantasy strategy…

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

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

Alison Chabloz— update

The likely date of early release is now some day uncertain next week. “They” are trying to get their full pound of flesh, it seems.

Latest news about persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz is that, according to usually-reliable sources, her early release on electronic tag has been further delayed by wrangling over the terms of her release; in other words, it may be that the Jew-Zionist lobby, operating as always behind the scenes, is trying to have her gagged, i.e. there may be conditions around use of or posting on the Internet. Such conditions, if imposed, might last until the end of the 18 weeks starting on 31 March 2021, the day of her sentencing; if so, she may be unable to post until early August 2021.

Looks as though the technology first publicly seen in the 1965 film, Thunderball, has finally come of age and is finally of use in practical operations:

Worth watching (pity about the horrible ending soundtrack, though).

I gave a brief assessment of the upcoming Hartlepool by-election a month ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/04/06/hartlepool-by-election-2021-preliminary-look/.

As to System-friendly faux-revolutionary Owen Jones, I have in the past given an assessment of him too: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/04/a-brief-word-about-owen-jones/.

The few, in (eg) Hartlepool, who are still Labour loyalists, point at achievements of the past, such as those of the Attlee government of 1945 (NHS, mainly…), but that is like saying that Lloyd George brought in the Old Age Pension, so vote Liberal, or LibDems in today’s terms. Absurd. Doesn’t work…

It is ridiculous for people in Hartlepool to vote “Conservative”, but it is equally silly to vote “Labour”, which supports mass immigration, and in that and other respects is now almost identical in real policy terms to the equally-misnamed “Conservatives”, and now led by a man who is married to a Jewish woman lawyer, whose children are being brought up as Jewish, and who is a puppet of the Jewish Zionist lobby.

Does Keir Starmer have anything to say to the people of Hartlepool? No. Neither, of course, does the part-Jew chancer and political bad joke, Boris Johnson. However, the voters of Hartlepool have no other realistic choice. The electoral system is itself a fraudulent bad joke. The result is that those voters want a change, but cannot get a change except to make a gesture at least, by binning Labour, which has won Hartlepool since 1974 when the present constituency was created.

The opinion polls show the Conservative Party well ahead of Labour in the Hartlepool race. The result may be tighter than some expect, but it seems likely that Labour will lose to the Conservative Party.

It is unlikely that Reform UK (effectively Brexit Party without the name, the support, or even the leader— traitorous Farage has decamped for the money) will get many votes. Thus the Conservative Party vote will be little impacted.

As for Labour, I predict a poor showing. There are many in Hartlepool, no doubt, who will not vote Conservative under any circumstances. Many former Labour voters, as in the 2019 General Election, will probably vote with their feet, and stay at home to watch the televised sport and pseudo-“celebrity” nonsense so beloved of the contemporary British masses. If so, the Labour Party is toast at Hartlepool.

A Conservative Party “victory by default” at Hartlepool is more than likely, and the same effect will be seen, in the near future, across much of England, in the absence of a real social-national party.

Communism“? Socialism, surely? I thought that Hitchens was once a Marxist (Trotskyist)?

“From the sublime to the ridiculous”, 1960s Prime Minister Harold Wilson almost invariably smoked a pipe in public to show that he was one of “the people”, whereas in fact he preferred cigars (Havanas), not a very “proletarian” choice (even in Cuba).

[Prime Minister of the UK, Harold Wilson, 1966, at Hugh Town, St. Mary’s, Isles of Scilly, with me (aged 9, or just 10, on far left of photo), brothers, and bodyguard (almost out of shot, far right)]

Unwilling to register with the Independent, I cannot read that article, but the conclusion seems (based on the quoted remark) to be right. Starmer, the Jewish Lobby puppet, is (as I predicted from the start) hopeless and as dull as ditchwater, but he is no more “the problem” for Labour than was the rather different Corbyn.

Labour’s problem is that there is no longer a “proletariat” or (in the old sense) a “working class”, there is no more a bloc “Labour vote”, there are no more, or very few, “working class communities”, as such, no nationalized industries of any size, and no great loyalty to Labour, even in its traditional North and North-East heartlands.

The Labour Party itself has changed out of all recognition since its highest point of popularity in 1945. From being a largely socialist party, it moved to social-democracy and then, arguably, in the 1990s under Blair, ditched even that. It became really just a label (or as the egregious waste of space, freeloader, and careerist, Jess Phillips MP, put it, “just a ****ing rose“). Rather like those Latin American countries where the almost-identical parties distinguish themselves by colour: the Blancos v. the Colorados. Like football teams, or the racing silks in the Hippodrome at Byzantium.

It is hard to see now for what the Labour Party stands. Starmer seems to be saying that he supports almost all of what Boris-Idiot’s maladministration does, but that “Boris” should do it better!

In fact I saw a satirical comment to the effect that, were the “Conservative” misgovernment to reintroduce workhouses, Labour under Starmer would agree, but cavil that that should be done more efficiently and slightly more humanely! A joke? Yes, sort-of…but then look at the attack on the unemployed, disabled etc over the past 15-20 years. Which party really started that? Labour…Yes, the “Conservative” Jew-lobby regime of David Cameron-Levita made it worse, but all that nonsense started under Gordon Brown and his lunatic misgovernment, via Alastair Darling, Stephen Timms etc. They, not the Conservatives, brought in the crazily dysfunctional —and also dishonest— ATOS carpetbaggers, for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Work_Capability_Assessment#History.

As I have often said, Labour is now basically the party of the blacks and browns and/or public service workers, which is why Labour eulogizes the NHS constantly (though the NHS is a very hit-and-miss service overall).

Really, one has to ask (again), “what (and who) is Labour for?”

I imagine that the victor in the upcoming local elections will be apathy, with few people turning out to vote.

This is the moment when a social-national party might make hay. If a social-national party actually existed. A real one, I mean, not the joke ones presently around.

Well, this week I did no better than John Rentoul; we both scored only 4/10 (though if I were to follow Rentoul’s usual practice, I could award myself an extra half-point for knowing that Father Ted was set on an Irish island, though I did not know its name). I had no idea as to questions 1, 2, 7, 8, and 10.

Shchi [щи], or Russian cabbage soup, is one of those things that can be either very pleasant or not very pleasant, other examples being borshch [борщ](beetroot soup), kvass [квас](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kvass) etc.

I suppose it is true of some British foods too. In the end, it is, of course, a question of taste. De gustibus non est disputandum. I like oysters; many do not. I like caviar (when afforded); many do not. I like (boiled and then fried) buckwheat kasha (probably because I ate it daily at one time, long ago); many do not, and think such a choice very odd indeed.

I have no particular animus against Boris-Idiot’s latest “ho” (to use the amusing American black term), but it is scandalous if (and it seems that) the woman has any but purely peripheral and personal influence on national affairs. After all, with the best will in the world, she got to her present position of influence on her back, to put it perhaps slightly crudely and…well, let’s leave that there! Suffice to say that she has never been elected, or even appointed, to any position of significance (and, no, I do not regard her unsuccessful period pumping out propaganda for Conservative Party HQ as that).

The woman likes animals, we are told. I approve heartily of that; and if (as it seems from what I have seen in photos) she has no taste, or employs an expensive interior decorator who has no taste, well…that is the way of the world. If her refurbishment at Downing Street is more “nouveau” than simply new, well…again…these things happen.

I should not like to tar Carrie Symonds with the brush justly censuring Boris-Idiot, but that immunity disappears if, as often claimed, she is interfering with, or even deciding, policy.
