Exactly: this is all a smokescreen laid down by an incompetent government and its tame scribblers at the Times, Telegraph, Spectator etc in order to try to blame one decent Englishman, an ex-Marines sergeant trying to help animals and people, for the fact that the UK and US governments have shown themselves unfit for purpose.
The UK bureaucracy and the Cabinet of Clowns are now using tame msm scribblers to —in effect— blame Pen Farthing for the shambolic way in which the withdrawal from Afghanistan has been handled. Look at this tweet by some bitch who is now the Defence Editor of the “Times “newspaper”:
Farthing did not “abandon” his Afghan staff. They were not allowed into the airport area. That was the decision either of the US Army, or of the Taliban. Yes, Farthing could have stayed in Kabul. That would have meant suffering and death for those 200 animals, possibly for him too, possibly for the Afghan staff of the charity (and yes, they are still in that same peril, but no worse peril because of his departure).
Farthing took a decision to save those he could. Easy to criticize someone faced with an impossible choice. MSM scribblers should take a wider view, not just be conduits for official propaganda.
As I thought yesterday, and before, this evil stupid government is trying to scapegoat Farthing for weeks, months, even years of shambolic British Government incompetence. Absolutely absurd, and absolutely disgusting.
Oh, and lookee here: expenses cheat and corrupt bastard ex-minister David Gauke (completely in the pocket of the Jewish/Israel lobby) decides to call the rescue of cats and dogs “sentimentality”.
Expenses freeloader Gauke was lucky not to have been exposed in the 2020 appeal of one of Alison Chabloz’s cases, an appeal that she won, in effect, when the CPS declined to provide disclosure of documents relating to how Gauke and/or others had been influenced behind the scenes by the fanatical Jew-Zionist pressure group, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”].
When the CPS declined to show the appeal judge [H.H. Judge Egbuna, sitting at Derby Crown Court] the documentation, the CPS response to Alison Chabloz’s appeal was abandoned and the conviction quashed (she had, at a much earlier stage, been released from prison on bail pending the appeal. She was in prison for 3-4 days, after having been sentenced by a magistrate).
After that, the “CAA” were desperate to “get” Alison Chabloz by making malicious complaints and, eventually, they did get her (she has, at time of writing, now again been in prison for two weeks), but that is another story.
Look at that idiot! Just someone with no real compassion or empathy who wants to virtue-signal how much he cares about “people” (in the abstract). Thinks he is clever calling the cats and dogs “hedgehogs”, in a failed attempt to devalue them. Sick little bastard.
I have little interest in the “honours” now given out like confetti (won a football or rugby game overseas? Knighthood. Won an Olympic gold medal? Knighthood. Gave money to the Conservative Party? Peerage. Etc.), but it might redeem the honours system a little were really heroic and decent people to be so honoured.
Come to think of it, now that honours are given out freely to actors and actresses etc, why has Egan never received one? He has done a huge amount of work for suffering animals, especially in relation to the cruel bear bile trade in South East Asia.
Very true, very logical, but that fails to take into account at the extent to which the Covid-19 “panicdemic” has been weaponized by the transnational conspiracy. Hence the fear propaganda for the past 19 months.
Not a white face. Not one.
Exactly. You see it in “Labour” pronouncements, and you see it in tweets from the Twitter-twits: “we support what the Conservatives are doing, but they should be doing it more efficiently, slightly fairer, and both wearing a facemask and bending the knee to the blacks“.
A textbook example of the unreality that was Corbyn-Labour. Tweeter “@jrc1921” actually showcases the calculations of BBC journalist Chris Mason, and does not seek to say that they are inaccurate, but persists in the idea that planting 200 trees per minute (i.e. more than 3 every second!) is both “feasible” and ” relatively conservative”!
True, a British equivalent of the 1970s Khmer Rouge could, in principle, get millions of people planting trees, even on such a scale. 100 million trees per year could be planted, were every single adult of appropriate age to plant 2 trees per year.
The devil is in the administrative detail. That is the unreality. Organizing 50 million people to plant 1 tree each, every 6 months. How? Where?
Not that I am against tree planting. Au contraire. Let’s do some good! Let’s have some fun!
Political reality is what people can accomplish, and so to that extent is flexible, not fixed. Sometimes 2+2 can = 5… To that extent, I agree with the tweeter above, and not only with Chris Mason. Both are right, if you like…
Exactly my position, in the mundane sense. I call it social nationalism.
Not sure why intelligent commentators such as Hitchens persist in trying to squeeze people and policies into the now almost meaningless “Left”/”Right” straitjacket(s).
…and guess (((who))) or (((what))) is behind most of the repression of opinion in the UK? The (((You know who)))…
Exactly. Two moribund political parties. For the electorate, a false binary choice with, in general, the same sort of policies coming out in the end (in government).
The early 1960s (or late 1950s) comment about “redbrick” university expansion, by (?) Kingsley Amis [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingsley_Amis], that “more will mean worse“, may have been partly snobbism, but God knows what he would have made of the 2021 situation, with so many “McUniversities” that one has not even heard the names of many of them; God only knows, also, what Amis would have thought of a Government minister (James Cleverly), whose “degree” is apparently in “Hospitality Management”; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Cleverly#Early_life_and_education.
Of course, the young people, say under 21, who support the nonsense put out by Extinction Rebellion and Greta Nut, were only 9 (or younger) when the chaotic and ludicrous 2009 Climate Change conference was held in Copenhagen. I remember it mainly for the little monkey who was President or Prime Minister for the Maldives, and who was constantly excitedly clapping above his head, especially when some delegates said that Europe should direct much money to countries facing inundation (in fact, 12 years on, and the Maldive islands are still there…). https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/The-Vote/2009/1220/Chaos-in-Copenhagen-behind-the-scenes-at-global-warming-summit
There may be climate change, in some degree (e.g. Australia is now certainly much hotter than it was in the 1960s when I was there), but that has happened throughout history. Humanity is only partly responsible. Moreover, whatever Britain, or even Europe does, is of small, indeed minimal, importance. Britain’s CO2 “emissions” are about 1% of the global whole.
“Climate change”, like “Covid-19” and other stuff (eg “Black Lives Matter” nonsense) has been distorted and weaponized by transnational conspirators, in order to impose an agenda. Call it “The Great Reset” (in part), if you like.
Ironic. The best way (perhaps the only way) in which Britain’s depleted navy could defend the UK now would be to sink the ships of the UK “Border Force”…
It is worth remembering that, whatever opinion polling says, whatever the bookmakers and so the (nationwide) betting public say, whatever the pundits say, the decision rests with those who stand in the polling booths today (as well as with those who have already cast postal ballots).
My feeling, from a long distance, is still that the Conservative candidate will win. Labour supporters have been pushing out huge numbers of tweets, but one lesson of the past decade is the the Twitter twits are usually wrong about most things, especially the result of elections and referenda, andare far from being in touch with the British people as a whole.
I have already blogged about why I think that Labour will not win and why Labour deserves not to win. It has nothing to say any more, and is not really opposing the Boris-idiot “Conservative” NWO/ZOG regime at all.
As someone put it )with me adding a few words), were the “Conservatives” to reintroduce workhouses, Labour under Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer (etc) would say “we agree with the basic policy, but it should be carried out more fairly, more efficiently, as well as while bending the knee to Black Lives Matter nonsense, and also wearing a facemask”…
Assuming that the Conservative candidate wins the by-election (if so, largely by default), will Labour come second, or fall to third place. The pundits say that the probability is that Labour will find that second place, but I am unsure. My feeling is that Galloway might manage to beat Labor to that second position. As I have blogged, at first I thought that Galloway might only get 4%, maybe 5%, but soo realized that he was going to do better. How much better must still be uncertain. 10%? 20%?
It is not impossible that, if the Conservative candidate gets, say, 45%, and a host of minor candidates get a total of about 15%, that Labour and Galloway might each be around the 20% mark.
As I wrote yesterday, I do not care who wins Batley and Spen so long as Labour loses.
Strange that some Starmer-Labour zealots think that it would make a difference to have Kim Leadbeater elected. If she is, Boris Johnson will still have a 80-seat Commons majority! If she is not elected, an 81-seat majority. Kim Leadbeater, who is in any case a pretty silly, uneducated, ignorant woman (from what I have seen of her online and on TV), can have no positive effect for the voters of Batley and Spen.
Batley and Spen would be better, objectively, either voting for Galloway, who will put the area in the spotlight, or electing the Conservative, if only because Government might listen to him, thus directing some investment or other help Batley’s way.
The experience of recent years indicates caution in accepting the betting market as a good forecaster of elections and referenda, but the odds are certainly strongly in favour of the Conservative Party. As for Labour v. Galloway, the result may be closer than the bettig odds seem to show.
Labour, as it now is, is totally toxic. Its silly but sincere leader, Corbyn, was ousted by a huge Israeli and “British” Jewish-lobby operation, one which eventually succeeded in installing Keir Starmer, a complete doormat for that lobby, and who has a Jewish wife and children who are actually being brought up as if fully-Jewish. This is the person who wants to be Prime Minister!
That operation also resulted in all the pseudo-Labour pro-Israel MPs getting promoted to the Shadow Cabinet and/or to other positions: Rachel Reeves, Lisa Nandy, Anneliese Dodds, even stupid Nia Griffith.
Why does @ChtyCommission allow Zionist groups to ‘police’ UK citizens using tactics synonymous with The Cheka police. How long before ‘volunteers’ claim leather coats on expenses? Make no mistake #Chekism is alive and well just watch Joe Glasman’s video. https://t.co/zZvuGe5HWg
This is the sort of blot who becomes an MP for the System parties these days.
Even some Jews speak against Israeli Zionist ethnic cleansing. For the victims, there will be no memorial (such as the “holocaust” visitor attraction Keir Starmer and Labour support being built next to the Palace of Westminster).
The opinion polling just above shows how out of touch the Labour Party is.
Various factions in the Labour Party assume that Labour as a party, as a major party, will continue indefinitely. That is not how history works.
Society moved on, and politics with it. Again, the old Soviet Communist Party (CPSU) once ruled unchallenged. Now peripheral.
As I have repeatedly blogged, there is no place for Labour as a major party. It ditched any pretence at “socialism” after 1989, kept a “social democratic” figleaf during the Blair-Brown years, tried to recapture a “socialist” edge under Corbyn (which was partly but not very successful, and was then undermined by the Jewish Zionists and their non-Jew supporters and doormats in and outside the Parliamentary Labour Party). Now, Labour has become all but irrelevant.
The result is that Labour now has no ideology, no real identity, no real nationalism or even vague patriotism, and has become a party for the “blacks and browns”, some public service employees, some academics and students perhaps. Worse yet for Labour, the Muslim near-bloc vote is now defecting because Muslims have realized that Labour is now again completely under Jewish-Zionist control and/or influence.
Labour lost Scotland quite suddenly, in 2015. The result of years of taking the voters for granted. 46 MPs in 2010 became 1 MP in 2015.
Remember that smug little idiot, Jim Murphy? Was a university student for about 12 years but left without a degree! People (msm drones) even talked of him as a possible Prime Minister of the UK at one time! Now? Just one of Tony Blair’s salaried gophers…
“In November 2016, Murphy took up an employed position as an adviser to former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair.“
“In August 2018, Murphy paid for a full-page advert in the Jewish Telegraph in which he criticised Jeremy Corbyn for what he claimed was the party’s failure to root out anti-semitism. The article, which appeared on page three of the paper under the headline “In sorrow and anger – an apology”, accused Corbyn and his top team of being “intellectually arrogant, emotionally inept and politically maladroit”.” [Wikipedia] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murphy.
Apart from that, Murphy accused Corbyn as being “intellectually arrogant, emotionally inept and politically maladroit“! Well, leaving Corbyn’s flaws aside, look who’s talking! Ha ha! Comedy gold.
That Natasa Pantelic, above, was the Labour candidate at the recent Chesham and Amersham by-election. She received 1.6% of the vote and came 4th.
Most of those “Labour canvassers” look like old Jews. Certainly fairly old, older than me (64), anyway… Since the departure of Corbyn, the young seem to have abandoned Labour. Without the whites, the Mulsim browns, and the young, Labour will soon be seriously struggling to remain a major party.
Surprising amount of people *mentioning * George Galloway on the doorstep. Haven't had anyone actually pledge their support for him, but he's clearly made an impression on many people in Batley and Spen.
Jesus H. Christ! Kim Leadbeater, the “Labour” (for the past few weeks) candidate, is even thicker, and even less honest, than I had thought! Pumping out shite…Absolute shite. Common Purpose, “diversity”, multikulti shite!
Did she take any interest in the abused English girls in that part of the world? Come to think of it, did her sister, Jo Cox? I somehow doubt it.
If that is “corruption”, it is hardly new! After all, what was nationalized industry from, say, 1950 or 1955 up to the 1980s? Nothing more really than a long-term bribe to miners, steelworkers, railwaymen, and many others. Same goes for “subsidies” to farmers. Come to that, even the Bolsheviks in 1917 promised “land and bread”…
In fact, if the voters of Batley and Spen think that the Government will favour areas with Conservative MPs (and that is probably correct), then what incentive is there to vote for the Labour candidate, who seems both dishonest and stupid, and who herself has no long allegiance to her new party anyway? She only joined “5 minutes” ago… She cannot help the voters of that area in the slightest.
So “decent” that she was unwilling to support the teacher driven out by Islamist extremists? So “decent” that she has said nothing about the abused girls in Yorkshire? So “decent” that she says nothing against migration invasion?
New article on the forked path facing the Labour Party. To rebuild the Red Wall or to seek something new? What should the future of Labour look like? And how will the Batley and Spen by-election inform this choice? Check it out now! https://t.co/gYQGvKJoi2
Let’s imagine that a party started which had reasonable social and economic policies, including national ownership of major utilities, a vibrant private economic sector, removal of disproportionate influence (and capital) from a (((certain))) part of the population, fair laws justly enforced, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and Britain and its people put first. That and, also, concern for the green and pleasant land. Oh, and an end to migration invasion; an ethnostate. That really would interest the British people, whether you call such a party “Labour”, “Conservative”, or social nationalism…
Normally, de mortuis nihil nisi bonum, but in this case Griffin is certainly correct. Rumsfeld was never punished on Earth…
Late afternoon music
Labour haven't said anything meaningful for a while, it's all been rhetoric. They've lost what made Labour what it is. In Hartlepool they tried to out UKIP actual UKIP, and in Batley and Spen? Out Galloway actual Galloway. They have no vision and the electorate see that.
…and that attitude shown by would-be MP Kim Leadbeater is exactly why Labour turned a blind eye to the rape of thousands of poor white girls by Pakistani (mostly) Muslims. Jo Cox was no different, I think.
To my mind, Kim Leadbeater has nothing to offer the Batley and Spen voters. Political experience— near-zero. Educational level— low. Moral courage— low, looking at how she refused to condemn the hounding of the Batley teacher, the Zionist influence over Labour, the rape of the abused white girls etc. She also ran away from hecklers (despite having an entourage) and refused to debate with George Galloway and others at a hustings.
Well, it is near 2000 hours, so I suppose that we shall soon have a better idea of which particular one of the “dirty democratic politicians” (as Hitler put it) will be soon sworn in as MP for Batley and Spen.
Apart from that, “voting for change” is meaningless at a by-election which will result in the Government either having a Commons majority of 80 or a Commons majority of 81, and no general election in sight for years, probably (maybe only in 2024). That’s assuming “Labour” were capable of delivering useful change anyway (I think not).
Well, I once again triumphed over John Rentoul, who only scored 3/10 this week. I always commend his honesty, though. I myself scored 6/10 this week. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 2, 6, and 9.
Ha ha! “Unusually“?! What about, just off the top of my head, “Boris”, Theresa May, David Cameron-Levita, Trump, George W. Bush, James Callaghan, Sarkozy, Yeltsin, Gorbachev, Honecker? Etc… The list is long.
Labour is going nowhere. The next two by-elections (Chesham and Amersham on 17 June 2021, and Batley and Spen on 1 July 2021), should give an idea of the state of play. At present, I am inclined to think that Batley will fall to the Conservatives, and that Chesham and Amersham will result in a Conservative win, and with a Labour lost deposit (maybe).
Quelle surprise: the opinion of the CIA carries more weight than the opinion of the American people with the US Government…
Load up! Load up!…
About one and a quarter million acres of private gardens exist in the UK. A crucial reservoir and sanctuary for animals, birds, insects, trees and bushes. These often-modest private spaces are a very important environmental element.
That Harwood person seems to be a component of the fake political-cultural debate, there to give the illusion of pseudo-national “takeback”. If you like, the mirror image of Owen Jones (as fake “revolutionary” scribbler), or a more mainstream “Prison Planet” Watson.
Exactly. The “cases” are almost all a mirage. No symptoms at all, or in some cases mild flu-like symptoms (though influenza can of course be fatal).
Many people are still fooled by the “panicdemic”, which is in a way unsurprising, after nearly a year and a half of truly relentless msm propaganda across the world. All the same, there are many people who can see that the virus scare has been weaponized for other purposes.
I have 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:
“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. 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.
#Israel STOP doing this. Your greed didn’t let you settle with what you’ve took from palestinians, you want EVERYTHING THEY GOT NOW !! Funny how America and other Major countries nag about “human rights” while violating Palestinian families. #ShameOnYou
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.
Mainstream media are predicting a Conservative Party victory, while continuing to pretend that a contest between two very similar System parties (and a few cranks and no-chances) is “democracy”, though it seems that, thanks to FPTP voting, the main binary choices will capture about 90%, maybe 95%, of all votes cast.
Turnout will probably be quite low.
I was just looking at a couple of tweets about the contest:
That refers to the outgoing (going, gone…) MP, Mike Hill, who denies sex pest allegations but who decided to stand down as MP because of them. Hm…Still, he can always return to work at the local library…or do a bit of useless trade union droning…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Hill_(British_politician)].
People may be surprised that I repost the tweet of a Jew-Zionist scribbler, but “there is no religion higher than truth”, as they say.
The fact is that communities such as Hartlepool are clutching at straws. That does not mean that they are totally stupid. True, the misnamed “Conservatives” are not worthy, and they have been in power, nationally, for 11 years now, but the voters of Hartlepool have had Labour MPs for nearly 50 years, and feel exploited. They can only bin Labour by voting Conservative (or at least staying at home and not voting).
In some countries at some times, failed political parties (members of) face imprisonment and even execution. In the UK, we are kinder. Those parties simply face political death. It happened to the once-all-powerful Liberal Party (though a ghostly shadow still exists, the LibDems), it is now happening to both Labour and Conservative parties. Labour first to go, it seems.
That one, above, the well-known Jewish actress, used to block me on Twitter, I think (my Twitter account was closed down by a Jew-Zionist claque-barrage of complaints in 2018) and even tweet against me occasionally. Correct here, though. Look at that tweet by one Grace Blakely:
Where does one start? Perhaps by expressing “surprise” (no, not really, not these days) that a young woman [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Blakeley] from a privileged background, privately-educated in Hampshire, and with (for what it is worth these days) a “First” from Oxford, prefers the philosophical-psychological term “ressentiment” to the straightforward standard English “resentment”…I suppose that she picked that up while doing her PPE back-of-postcard degree at St. Peter’s, Oxford. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ressentiment
Secondly, by examining the claim that those with a “degree” (even if a “McDegree” from a “McUniversity”, are “the educated“. That is so Blair-1997…pretty outdated as a expression of reality.
Sadly, the “degree” from a “university” is no guarantee of real education, now that nearly half of all persons over 17 go to a “university”. Going to Oxford is no guarantee either, as both Grace Blakely and, for another example, Louise Mensch (if anyone remembers that stupid creature) bear witness.
As a matter of fact, both of the above are also examples of the pointlessness or near-pointlessness of Twitter. Grace Blakely has, apparently, 132,000 Twitter “followers”, while the lunatic Mensch has (looking at her Twitter account for the first time in a couple of years) 281,000! One Direction pop group has 31.5 million!
Grace Blakely is apparently appointed as a Visiting Fellow at the Open University! This country is so screwed, it really is…

So what is left of the Royal Navy is being used to show the flag in a fishing dispute with a close ally of this country (Brexit notwithstanding), but 200+ migrant-invaders are being “rescued” and then escorted across the Channel by the same navy and/or the ludicrous Border Force, every day. Mad…
Were I maliciously-inclined, I suppose that I should encourage pedestrians to push off the riders whenever seen. However, where I live there are few “e-scooters” (in fact, I believe that I have only seen one), so on this occasion I shall say “none of my business”.
The revolution devours its own children…
This time, involving the tiny and unpleasant “Resisting Hate” “antifascist” troll-org, led by the well-fed Roanna Carleton-Taylor of (near) Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
Seems that either Roanna Carleton-Taylor or an associate (she uses several Twitter accounts anyway) posted something involving a banana to a black, which apparently is considered “racist”, though I cannot see why. I myself eat the occasional yellow fruit, after all.
Anyway, there ensued a several-days-long Twitter storm in a teacup, which dragged in “Dr” Louise Raw (prolific pro-“antifa” tweeter) and at least one mentally-disturbed Jewish Zionist woman from North London.
“Dr” Raw has not tweeted for the past week, I now notice.
I concede that I have not followed the nonsense, and am merely amused at the supposed “anti-racists” of different types all tearing chunks out of each other.
The denouement? Roanna “antifashwitch”, the former “@Witchofpeace” on Twitter (she tweeted once about how she kills spiders when putting a curse on someone! Odd…I thought that that brought down bad luck upon the killer…), has changed her account to “@oilpaintwitch” and has posted this:
Can you “resign” from an “organization” that is just you yourself, with a few other idiots? Oh, well, there it is.
As I have blogged previously, I have never seen any of these sorts of “antifascist” and/or Jewish Zionist trolls offer any policies or ideas about how to improve society (except by advocating the “removal” of those they deem “Nazi”, “fascist”, “racist” etc). It’s all negative and all, at root, based around their own hate (they, unwittingly ironically, always claim to oppose “hate”, of course…). cf. “Hope Against Hate” etc.
I have to admit that I am rather curious as to what happened to the £12,000 that Roanna, Mike Stuchbery (the pro-“antifa” tweeter, would-be “journalist”, would-be “historian” and general grifter), and a Pakistani solicitor extracted, via GoFundMe, from 700 well-meaning (?) mugs, on the premise that Stuchbery was going to sue “Tommy Robinson” (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon). Never happened. As far as I know, the only action taken was a very poorly-drafted letter from the Pakistani, which may or may not have been delivered to “Robinson”.
Apparently, one of the minor candidates for London Mayor has been associating with some alleged fraudsters: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/should-someone-who-wants-london-24047689. Strangely enough, though, I saw nothing in the msm about the fairly recent video put out by “Conservative” candidate Shaun Bailey, which featured a woman best described as a “Balkan fraud”, and who was convicted of both fraud and forgery at Southwark Crown Court in 2013. Come to that, Bailey himself was, arguably, lucky not to face more than a police investigation when his non-profit quasi-charity had to be wound up some years ago. Oddly enough, all the monies had disappeared, and large amounts had apparently been spent on hotels and restaurants for…Shaun Bailey.
Fortunately for West Indian-origined Bailey, the voters in today’s election will have voted by the time I post this; in any case, Bailey has little chance of beating Sadiq Khan in the contest.
I wonder why the Conservative Party picked Bailey? I remember seeing him on one of the Andrew Neil politics shows on the BBC, years ago. Unimpressive. A West Indian with a big mouth and not much of interest to say. I suppose that, London now being a mainly non-white city, the Con Party decided that it needed a non-white candidate. Well, that fell flat (it seems).
Twitter account “@SocialistVoice” (Scott Nelson, who was in the Labour Party until the Jew-Zionists had him expelled) often used to retweet me (until the Jews had me expelled from Twitter in 2019). He seems still popular on Twitter (about 75,000 “followers”).
I might not agree with everything that “Socialist Voice” tweets, but I think that he is basically a decent person (and the Jew-Zionists hate him, which is a good sign).

We see the way that this is going: new laws beefing up the powers of police, officials, security and intelligence agencies; pay rises for police and medical profession etc. A germinal police state arising.
The tweeter below has not really thought about this:
Is it really so amazing? Starmer is a complete puppet of the Jewish/Zionist lobby. Since he took over the Labour Party, the Zionist lobby (in the msm, and in Parliament) has pretty much stopped its attacks on Labour, which were constant during Corbyn’s leadership. There again, look at the Boris-idiot government of clowns…
Just as the “Conservative” Party won the 2019 General Election by default, the “Labour” Party is now challenging the Cons not on Labour’s own merits but because the clownish incompetence of Boris-idiot and his bad joke Cabinet is so impossible for the public to miss.
Sadly, not all scientists are objective great brains searching for truth and new ways of looking at the physical world, just as not all priests and prelates are holy, not all academics are scholars, and not all politicians are wise and well-intentioned statesmen.
End the “panicdemic” now…

Quite. Rupert Murdoch said, a few years ago now, that “the British Press is controlled by Jews” (and went on to say that Jews in the msm should be even more pro-Israel!).
Note that. Two different banks but both obviously controlled or influenced by the enemies of European race and culture.
One can say, with some truth, that ordinary political activity is not the only, or even best way forward, but it remains an important aspect of the whole. Young people (especially) may or may not join this or that party, but will still be influenced by what they read and hear on the website of any party which is social-national. That must be positive.
The BBC is just a kind of TV and radio puppet show, a “Moscow Radio” or “Pravda” now.
Oh, God! Professor Ferguson again! That idiot! Apparently, he is not even a medical man, let alone a virologist or epidemiologist; a physicist, it seems! The best thing he can do is shut up, go away, and focus on screwing his married “ho”. Stalin would have had him shot by now.
The problem with such people (the ones who regard anything before 2000 as a Dark Age, in the face of all evidence) is that when you argue or discuss society with them, you are not having an argument or discussion with someone whose world-view is based on facts or —still less— reality, but with someone who is both deluded and self-deluded, someone who prefers fantasy to reality.
As Hitler said of the Weimar Republic, “they want not only their daily bread but their daily illusion“…
The question is “when will the mad carousel crash?” and then, “what political and social movement will then be able to seize power across Europe?“
Labour, Corbyn and the Jew-Zionists
The above blog piece is fairly interesting, but fails to use the words “Jew” or even “Jew-Zionist” even once! Yet “they” were those plotting against Labour from as soon as Corbyn was elected leader! The whole campaign against Corbyn was led and almost entirely staffed by Zionist, pro-Israel Jews. I am no “Corbynist”, but I am a truthful and accurate observer and commentator on policy, events and people, as well as being a struggler for a better society and thinker into the future.
By a campaign of malicious denunciation to police, CPS and Twitter (etc), the fanatical Jew-Zionists have suppressed free speech to the point where it scarcely exists; where it does, it is because a relatively few British and other Europeans are determined to express their socio-political views and to fight for freedom, come what may.
“In 2003, [Gilad] Atzmon wrote that: “We must begin to take the accusation that the Jewish people are trying to control the world very seriously”, the blog post was subsequently amended with “Zionists” replacing “the Jewish people” in the original post.” [Wikipedia]
“At a meeting at University College London the following November , [Miko] Peled complained about the “witch-hunt against antisemites and Holocaust deniers” over the past two years.” [Wikipedia]
Note the (((typically))) violent language: “slaughtered“… the language of kosher (kashrut) butchery, of ethnic cleansing, of Jew-Zionist tribalism and cruelty.
It is when the leader of the party is a Labour Friends of Israel member, married to a Jewish woman lawyer, with their children being brought up as both Jewish and Zionist!
More thoughts about the facemask nonsense
The joke below was sent to me. It has a sharp and topical edge:
Doctor: Good morning Mr Jones – how are you feeling today?
Patient: Great, just been for a 7k run.
Doctor: Right, Right. There’s no easy way to say this – I’m afraid I have some bad news for you, you had better take a seat.
Patient: Oh God, what is it doctor?
Doctor: Theres no way to cushion this, I’m afraid – the test you took for Covid-19 came back positive.
Patient: Oh no, that’s awful. Give it to me straight doctor, what are my chances? Don’t hold back. I need to know the truth.
Doctor: Well, I’m afraid you only have between a 99.8% and 99.4% chance of survival – although as you are 35 and have no other conditions it may be as much as 99.9%, maybe more – we just can’t tell at this stage. Though we’re pretty sure.
Doctor: Also the test may be wrong. You may just have a cold or something…
(Patient gets up and walks out)
Doctor: Don’t forget your mask!
Well, there it is. Reasonably amusing and displaying the fact that virtually no-one is getting infected with Coronavirus in the UK now, but the fear is almost as great as it was when the ridiculous over-reaction started.
Yesterday, 20 people died in UK hospitals from or with Coronavirus. This virus is not, now, a really serious public health threat. The Government, though, is intent on forcing facemasks on the public, and is going to increase fines for non-compliance, after a first offence, to £3,200!
I was watching part of an episode of the 1970s TV documentary, The World at War. R.A. “Rab” Butler [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rab_Butler] talking about what happened on 3 September 1939, the day when Britain declared war on Germany, The air-raid sirens were sounded in London, all over London, and people were told to wear, and were filmed wearing, gasmasks.
In fact, there was no danger from either gas attacks or air raids. The Germans had no plans to use gas, (and few if any supplies); there were no gas attacks on Britain during the whole of the War. As for air raids and bombing, the first German bombs fell on London (in the area of the docks by the Thames, since the 1980s known as the Docklands) in September 1940, over a year after war had been declared.
So no real danger but much whipping-up of fear among the public, the public told that they must wear masks (at times) and react like lemmings if air raid warnings (klaxons or whining air-whistles) were heard.
That sounds rather like Britain today. No real risk to most people but everyone told (on pain of increasingly heavy fines) to wear (useless) masks inside many buildings (how long before that diktat is enlarged to include various outside places?). All for nothing except to control the public. Nothing to do with the “virus” itself, which for the past month has killed only a small fraction of those dying in the UK from influenza.
Below: looks as though some doctor or other may be in trouble…
No doubt done with the best of intentions, but one wonders what such technology might change into, down the line…
Some interesting tweets from “Socialist Voice” (Scott Nelson), who used to like and retweet some of my own Twitter comment before the Jew-Zionists (and a few non-Jew doormats) in the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” pressure group (cabal) conspired to have me removed from Twitter. The same untermenschen have been trying for years to get the Socialist Voice Twitter account removed; so far it is still there, but, with (mainly) Jewish/Zionist censorship intensifying, for how long?.
One has to wonder how long the fighters for freedom are going to play by “their” rules in a rigged game?
In respect of that report about the Labour Party, it is a matter of unconcern to the Zionists now again controlling Labour that membership numbers are plummeting. All that matters to “them” is that Labour, as one of the two “main parties” is not, even slightly, “antisemitic” and/or anti-Israel. “They” do not care if Labour does not win elections (95% of Jews now vote Conservative anyway), and in fact the lower taxes under Conservative Party rule suit most Jews very well…
The Conservative Party now claims 191,000 members. If true, that is an increase, in a year or so, of 50,000. Still, the relevant facts are that only 1 person in every 350 in the UK is a Conservative Party member even now, yet the Party won the 2019 General Election anyway, despite having only about 1 person in 500 as a member. Labour’s 500,000-600,000 members (2019), about 1 person out of 120 UK inhabitants, made little difference to that result.
Both System parties are now mere facades; both are controlled, in effect, by Jew-Zionists, and both are pretty much following similar policies. To put it another way, Labour is weakly echoing whatever Boris-idiot does, but adding “we might have done it better...”

19-04-20 We agreed to all these new arrangements by our national passivity when our new status was imposed on us. Neither our institutions nor most of us, uttered a whisper of opposition. We took the yoke, and have entered a new servile relationship with the state. Peter Hitchens
Tom Watson is completely in the pocket of the Jewish lobby. He conspired from Day 1 against Corbyn and his own party. Not that I have much time for Corbyn, who never really took on the Zionist lobby, and who always parrotted “holocaust” propaganda etc.. He even nominated Watson for the peerage which has now been blocked. What’s wrong with Corbyn? I would have let Watson spin.
Watson was also, of course, a huge expenses cheat and freeloader. He even claimed £500 a month expenses for food! He ordered so many pizzas on expenses that he was given a free pizza cutter!
John Bercow has also been refused a peerage. Equally good news. That Jew is a disgrace, who misused his position to support “antifa” thuggery and the Jewish lobby. Biased. Unobjective; and that is even before one recalls the televized and other antics of Bercow’s slut wife.
The whole Parliamentary milieu has become, like the Church, the Bar, the Monarchy, the police, the armed services and other traditional aspects of British life, a bad joke.
I may do a blog article about a character mentioned in that article, a Jew sociology lecturer at Birkbeck College (part of London University), called Ben Gidley, who has a trolling account on Twitter under the name @BobFromBrockley (his would-be “professional” one is @BenGidley).
Under the @BobFromBrockley banner, Gidley promotes political violence, so long as it is only used against “fascists” and “Nazis” (oh, and anyone against the Israeli state…like many Jews, he is a fervent supporter of Israel).
He has had some Twitter accounts removed or frozen, for example @InTheSoupAgain, which he used on a daily basis to attack me and my Twitter account (the Jews eventually had me expelled from Twitter in 2018).
Gidley would launch vicious assaults on anyone even passing the time of day with me on Twitter. Most of those attacked blocked him or told him to get lost; sadly, a few doormats did what he wanted and blocked me. Not many, though.
Gidley, as “Soup”, had a few other Jews supporting him in his trolling. One, @cdaargh (previously “Christine of Aargh”), was a mentally-disordered Jewish woman, who supplemented her prescribed anti-psychotic and/or anti-depressive medication by liberal intakes of whisky. Demented. Like so many of those who have opposed me, she has either gone up the chimney or been sent to a mental hospital. I have blogged before about the strong connection that exists between contemporary “anti-fascism” and mental disorder.
Gidley’s “Soup” account was “suspended” (removed) by Twitter in the end, but was resurrected by him under the name @AntiNazisUnited, which account has now been frozen since April 2019.
What I find most extraordinary about Gidley is that his college seems to be sanguine about his hate-filled Twitter outpourings, on which he seems to spend a goodly part of his day.

The semi-literate “Cat” Smith (Catherine Jane Smith) is Labour MP for Lancaster and Fleetwood, a Labour-leaning marginal. Ms. Smith, the proud possessor of a degree in “Sociology and Gender Studies” (groan), “identifies herself as a Christian, socialist, feminist, republican and trade unionist.” [Wikipedia] and has never had a non-political job (her only jobs noted are “working for Jeremy Corbyn” and for a trade union as a “policy officer”). A deadhead.
Leaving aside “Cat” Smith, What are we to make of the seemingly relentless drive to lower the voting age in the UK? Where is the lower limit? 16? 15? 14? Why? It is not much of an argument to say (true though it is) that even the young people of 18, 19, 20, enfranchised re. Westminster elections since the early 1970s, mostly do not bother to vote (though I myself did, when 18, in late 1974. My candidate received about 690 votes and lost his deposit).
A decision on age of enfranchisement can only reasonably be made on the basis of psychological or philosophical knowledge; otherwise, the decision to lower (or raise) the age when people can vote is purely arbitrary. Some children of 12 are more capable of deciding intelligently on their political preference than are some adults of 60, but that is no reason to lower the voting age to 12 for all, and it would be seen as invidious to allow some 12-year-olds to vote and not others (or to disenfranchise some 60-year-olds).
Corbyn (and Diane Abbott) once again proving what deadheads they both are. “Safe”? Ah, until a “vaccine” is developed against Coronavirus, which might be in the Autumn, or Winter, or 2021, or 2022, or…never. Or perhaps they mean…well, what can they mean? Until the entire population of (now, thanks to mass immigration-invasion) 70 millions is tested and found clear? So would that be in 2022, 2023, or when?
I favoured Corbyn as Labour leader because at least he was to some extent against Zionism and the Jewish lobby (though all too ready to parrot all the “holocaust” nonsense), but I always tweeted and blogged about how poor he is ideologically and intellectually: a trainee local reporter for about 6 weeks in Shropshire, who spent a couple of years bumming around Jamaica and Latin America as (for a few months) a teacher of small children. Then came his course at a polytechnic, studying Trade Union Studies, a mickey mouse course, and he could not handle even that, so dropped out in the first year.
In short, Corbyn is a bloody joke, of course (the less said about Diane Abbott, the better!). He is now back in his comfort zone, bleating about the rights of various groups overseas, while making himself an idiot, from time to time, on UK domestic politics.
What do Corbyn and Abbott imagine is going to happen to the economy even as it stands, with some form of “lockdown”/shutdown lasting until the Autumn, let alone (which seems to be Corbyn’s preference) 2021?
There again, Corbyn and Abbott see old-style socialist Cuba and Venezuela as success stories, so this recent news is of little surprise.
Sad to say, though I should have liked to see a weak, maybe minority, Corbyn-Labour government (for my own purposes), the Jews were in some respects right about Corbyn: a complete deadhead.
From the Editor of the Financial Times, no less. Disturbing that so few journalists seem to have seen the growing amount of material showing clearly that “lockdowns” are almost —and possibly completely— irrelevant…
Where she is, of course, right, is that the economy is already collapsing. There are many, on Twitter etc, who say “collapse? What collapse?” They, presumably, and unlike me, were not in Poland in 1988-89 (I was there on several occasions, for about 3 months altogether). The Polish economy was collapsing.
The zloty had collapsed (I saw its value, in purchasing power, decline by a factor of about 200 from mid-1988 to late 1989).
“In an effort to escape such situation, Poland started massively printing banknotes, without backing from increased economic output. Thus, deliberately attempting hyper inflation throughout the 80s to resolve the economic stagnation. Banknotes denominated at 5,000 złoty were introduced in 1982, 10,000 złoty in 1988, 20,000 and 50,000 złoty in 1989, and 100,000, 200,000 and 500,000 złoty in 1990. Grosz coins were rendered worthless and coins were mostly made out of aluminum (with the exception of the commemorative ones). The public debt burden doubled over the course of the 80s.” [Wikipedia]
In other words, it was as if every £2 in your pocket in 2020 were worth only 1p by the end of 2021. Never say never…
My point here though, is that the Summer of 1988 in Poland did not seem like a grey, harsh financial or economic crisis. I myself was insulated anyway, as a foreigner with a sufficiency of US dollars (which made me locally richer day by day, a “valuta vulture”); but even local Poles seemed, superficially, to get by.
The large outdoor swimming pools were well-attended, the cafes too. I recall drinking some (far too many) excellent Polish bottled beers with a member of the Border Guards, in an outdoor terrace bar situated in a kind of ruined castle overlooking a street in the centre of the town of Bielsko-Biala:
It was clear on my first visit in 1988 that Poland was in economic difficulties, but “crisis? what crisis?” was also a reasonable position to take, looking around.
By late 1989, the currency was effectively valueless, the socialist government had collapsed and been supplanted by a Solidarity party one, and Poland was embarking on its journey to finance-capitalism.
Switch to “lockdown” Britain. See the resemblances?
I do not think that I ever saw Peter Hitchens speak up for me, when a pack of Jews had me disbarred in 2016; or when the toytown police “interviewed” me (at the behest of effectively the same Semitic pack) in 2017.
I also saw nothing from him supporting Alison Chabloz (prosecuted at the demand of the same Jews in 2018, for singing songs…), or Jez Turner (prosecuted and even imprisoned for making a brief speech in Whitehall; same Jews were behind that).
Ah. Another hypocrite. Iain Dale never supported my rights of free expression. Au contraire. There again, talking heads in msm jobs (like Dale) would be blacklisted and shoved off the airwaves at one word from the Jewish lobby. Remember Kevin Myers?
“After complaints from readers and the Campaign Against Antisemitism, the article was removed from the website. It has been announced by the newspaper that Myers will not write for The Sunday Times again.”
“Campaign Against Antisemitism”…the same Jews…again…
The joke was that Myers was clumsily trying to compliment the Jews in his column! In fact he kow-towed to them even after they raised a storm of faked protest around him. As Americans might say, “what a cuck!”
“Myers apologised for this article on radio, saying that “it is over for me professionally as far as I can see”, and that “I think they [Jewish people] are the most gifted people who have ever existed on this planet and civilisation owes an enormous debt to them – I am very, very sorry that I should have so offended them.” [Wikipedia]
Maybe Myers could offer to shine “their” cars or (((their))) shoes for them!
YouTube pulled not only my talk given at the London Forum in February 2017, but the entire London Forum channel on YouTube…Likewise, Alison Chabloz had her channel pulled. The same has happened to many others. Another example of what I have called “the privatization of public space”.
These days, in the UK, your freedom of speech is in the hands of such as an anonymous office bod at Twitter or YouTube, or a desk sergeant of the Derbyshire Police (see the experiences of Alison Chabloz detailed on Twitter under #alisonchabloz).
Good luck with that!
“Susan Diane Wojcicki was born on July 5, 1968 to Esther Wojcicki, an educator of…Jewish descent.” [Wikipedia]
So 85% of the rank and file of the misnamed “Conservative” Party think that 3 million Hong Kong Chinese should be allowed to come to the UK?
Apart from the sheer screaming madness of that, it collapses forever the attempt by the “Conservatives” to pretend that they are tough on immigration. Already we have seen that all that thick Ugandan Asian Priti Patel can do is “talk a good game”. She’s useless, even leaving aside the fact that she herself is an immigrant, in effect.
I was just thinking about what my thoughts might be were I a foreign citizen thinking of visiting the UK for business or pleasure, or indeed were I a British expat visiting the UK for any reason, if I were told that, on arrival in the UK, I would have to “self-isolate” in my hotel, short-term rental, or wherever else, for 2 weeks!
What business trip would be of such importance that it would justify two full weeks of house arrest? Personal business? Well, if it were urgent, the trip would be pointless, because the visitor will not be able to meet people or attend events for a fortnight. Tourism? “I went to London, and all I got was a lousy 2 weeks in my hotel, unable to go out”…
If this 2-week quarantine had been put into place for, say, a limited time such as a month, starting in February or March, then maybe. Now? Pointless and stupid. Like the person posing as Prime Minister.
For me, until the “eminence” of Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin etc, nothing highlighted the decadence of art and society in the post-WW2 era as much as the “artist” Christo, who has just died. He was famous for wrapping up buildings, bridges etc. This, we were told, was art, and the bastard made millions from it. Sick. I do not usually criticize the recently-deceased (de mortuis nihil nisi bonum) but this is important. Art has been trashed by these impostors.
Indeed. So Hitchens should speak up for Alison Chabloz, for Jez Turner, and for me…
Trump and martial law
Twitter going mad about Trump having (allegedly) declared martial law without having declared it. It is 30 years since I passed an exam in US Federal Law (as part of the New York Bar Exam), so I am no authority on this, but I can see the way things are going. If a similar situation, mutatis mutandis, occurred in the UK, would people prefer martial law (order) or no law (and no order)? I think that I can at least answer that one.
I was also interested to see that the Twitterati went mad today because a photograph of Michael Gove‘s bookshelves (rather less impressive than was my one-time library of 2,000+ books…) showed that he had a volume by that excellent and now-pilloried historian, David Irving, sitting there.
Well, regular readers will know what I think of Gove, that expenses cheat, fraud, drunk, cocaine abuser and (worst of all) doormat for Israel, but it makes me laugh to see him attacked by the pseudo-socialist “antifa” idiots (“useful idiots” for the Jew-Zionist lobby)!
Some of those idiots really are (far more than the Germans of the 1930s ever were) the bookburners of our times. What is shocking, though, is that some are well-known journalists, other scribblers, established academics etc. All commending censorship…
268 deaths in the UK “from” or “with” Coronavirus today, a huge fall. The government of fools has made a huge mistake in putting the population under house arrest.
What almost interests me more is how very supine and compliant most of “my fellow citizens” (I prefer to think of them as obedient rabbits) have been and continue to be. They might, the more disorderly of them, have a drunken fight or catfight (in “normal” times) on a Friday night, but when push comes to crunch there they are, the rabbits, all lining up 6 feet apart to buy bread and milk, and only going out at all when the toytown police give them the nod. Pathetic.
In related news, the London “Nightingale” instant hospital has been “stood down”, having only received a few dozen patients out of the 4,000 expected. The other similar hospitals across the country have also been closed or are being closed; some never opened at all!
The Boris-idiot government is now going to pretend to be still somehow in control, which it very obviously is not. Before long, there will be an effective lifting of the “lockdown”, but disguised by pointless “testing”, by fake “trial runs” in places that don’t matter very much, like the Isle of Wight, etc.
Meanwhile, the UK economy is spinning into a terminal decline. Worse, the plebs (including affluent suburbanites and “country”-dwellers, by the way) have been scared out of their skins, and actually are now afraid to leave their houses! Except to clap on command (“for the NHS” which, for whatever reason, is now very far from offering the best medical service in Europe).
Jesus Christ! These are the descendants, 80% of them anyway, of the contemporaries of Nelson, Wellington, Drake, Hood…
The more I see of those who rule, or pretend to rule, the UK, as well as those who pretend to comment intelligently on various current affairs, the more I realize that I, and people who agree with me, should be seated at the head of those affairs.
That would work better @danieljhannan, if the govt hadn't made such a huge propaganda song and dance over those hospitals. A competent government in what was once our tradition would have made quiet, effective preparations. This lot sought the praise, must now take the criticism. https://t.co/qpXNKu6BAb
Yes, and our political leaders are less well-educated, less experienced and face no serious opposition. Our media, once adversarial, are consensual and in many cases co-opted into a sort of semi-official Al Ahram role. 1968 wasn’t all bad @harrypaye. https://t.co/M3BavK3TdK
Well, I would disagree with Fraser when he says Sweden 'tamed' anything. There is no evidence that any action (except handwashing and general common sense) inhibits the spread of the virus, which appears largely to follow its own course. https://t.co/HJvuKqbsP7
Re. the above tweet, exactly what I was blogging, nearly 2 months ago. I may not be an “expert” (virologist, epidemiologist etc…and btw any doctor or nurse who is neither of those really knows little if anything more about Coronavirus than me…), but looks like I was right and the “experts”, Downing Street loony “advisers”, MPs, Cabinet ministers and msm scribblers were, almost without exception, wrong.
Even the wild gamblers at Rishi Sunak's Treasury now see that the cost of the Panic Policy is unsustainable (as I have pointed out for several wasted weeks). How are we protecting the NHS by emptying the national bank account? https://t.co/8gweMek8mL
