A very sad story. It struck me more because, from age 5 to age 10 (late 1961 to early 1967, when my family moved to Sydney, Australia), I myself was a pupil at that school. The outer look of the school is just the same as it was 60 years ago, except for there now being cars parked outside in the road. I lived about a mile away. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caversham_Heights.
“Oxfam came under fire last night for issuing a bizarre ‘inclusive’ language guide to staff.
The 92-page report warns against ‘colonial’ phrases such as ‘headquarters’, suggests ‘local’ may be offensive and says ‘people’ could be patriarchal.
Workers were told ‘parent’ is often preferable to ‘mother’ or ‘father’, terms such as ‘feminine hygiene’ should be dropped, and ‘people who become pregnant’ should be used instead of ‘expectant mothers’.
Nigel Mills, Tory MP for Amber Valley, added: ‘It’s as though Oxfam are trying to take the word ‘woman’ out of the dictionary – it’s nonsense.’
And Toby Young of the Free Speech Union said it was ‘hard to take all this woke virtue-signalling seriously’ given Oxfam was censured for the way it handled reports that staff sexually exploited children after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.“
More of this now-almost-ubiquitous nonsense. When are the British people going to get angry enough to do something about it? Or are they only angry at stuff like the possibility that ignorant know-nothing Gary Lineker might be sacked from his £1M-£2M a year BBC sinecure “job”?
Never give money to Oxfam.
Amazing artistry. The scene created is very stimulating for the imagination.
In the (?) Northern English phrase, some people don’t know what day it is.
I expect that some mugs, such as tweeter “Norma Joones”, will send the fraudulent conwoman more money now…
“Jack Monroe” is just an out and out fraud. She has in fact tried this on (but referencing a number of other supposed medical conditions) over the years.
Incredibly, as of today, 481 utter mugs (up 2 on last week) aresending her a total of thousands of pounds each month via Patreon alone. So long as they continue to do that, “Jack Monroe” can ignore the fact that she is now exposed (to all but complete idiots and naifs) as a fraudster and near-fraudster (“grifter”), and also ignore the fact that her pathetic recent book bombed, together with her one-time TV career.
I suppose that she has got away with her frauds so far because they are in a legal grey area (except for the “sue Lee Anderson and Martin Daubney” crowdfunder scam, which may yet have criminal-legal consequences).
Typical Twitter. Look at that Simon Winterburn tweeter, complete with facemask! What an idiot…did he buy it from grifter “NHS doctor” and facemask seller, Julia Grace Patterson? Also, where is his Ukrainian flag?
As said, typical Twitter. Someone who actually has no knowledge of the facts, yet passionately and angrily attacking those who have presented huge amounts of direct evidence against “Jack Monroe”. I suppose that the Simon Winterburn tweeter supports “Jack Monroe” because her chosen Twitter persona (when it suits her) is “anti-Tory”, as with other notable Twitter “grifters”, among them Julia Grace Patterson, “@Supertanskiii” etc.
Just imagine— many people (at least on Twitter) see Mhairi Black as a future leader of Scotland! Clueless. Also, why are so many Scottish female politicians lesbians?
America has a society almost collapsing under the weight of its own problems. Withdraw from the Ukraine situation, and concentrate on those problems.
The House of Commons is a pathetic monkeyhouse, nothing more.
Carl Benjamin (“Sargon of Akkad”) may be right insofar as empires often result in movements of population, but is wrong to think (typically of so many today) that it is a question of “rights”, when it is simply a question of which race or people is the stronger or strongest.
Only about 5% of the present world population need survive, but it has to be the right 5%.
Introduce NWO/ZOG puppet Macron and his weird wife to Madame Guillotine.
Reduction of artificial fertilizers is a good idea, but the method was quite wrong.
I was just thinking about the “level”, culturally, of Russia and Ukraine.
When you think of Russia in terms of historical culture, a host of names come to mind at once. In the world of literature, you could cite —to name but a few of the most famous— Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Chekhov, Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Bulgakov, Lermontov, Sholokhov, Leskov, Yevtushenko, Solzhenitsyn etc.
Some of those writers, eg Gogol and Bulgakov, were in fact born in Ukraine; Gogol was ethnically and culturally Russian as well as Ukrainian. After all, Ukraine and Russia were together for a thousand years.
In music, one thinks of, inter alia, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Glazunov, Glinka, Rachmaninov, Scriabin, Borodin, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Balakirev, Mussorgsky, Shostakovitch, Myaskovsky, Khrennikov, Popov, Shchedrin, Sviridov and many others.
The same can be said of painters.
As to Ukrainian writers, composers etc, there are quite a number (e.g. Lyatoshinsky), but few who would be known to people in the UK, USA etc.
It is true that, until about 30 years ago, there was a broadly Russifying policy in the Ukraine and, in both the 19thC and under Stalin, a general repression of Ukrainian language, but that is not the whole picture.
Ukraine is a country the same size as France, and which has today a population of over 40 million (minus 5-10 million now living beyond its borders).
There can surely be no doubt that, historically, Russia has produced a great deal more, culturally, than Ukraine, whatever reasons can be adduced, yet when we look at Western propaganda, whether in the msm or on Twitter etc, all we see is that Russians are “savages“, or “orcs” (a reference to the brutal and stupid evil soldier-creatures of The Lord of the Rings) and so on.
By contrast, the Ukrainian (Kiev regime) people and soldiers are represented as being far far better than Russians.
Well, of course, “in war, truth is the first casualty” but, even so, it is “disappointing” to see how easily bamboozled many people are in, say, the UK, and how enthusiastically the basically Jewish-pervaded msm has embraced its faux-war propaganda role.

In the absence of credible intelligence (available to me), I cannot comment on the “UFO” reports.
I am hardly a fan of Trump, that squawking parrot in a cage guarded by Zionist Jews, but it is probably true to say that the Ukraine war would be over now without US leaders stoking the conflict by supplying weapons and money to Zelensky and the Kiev regime.
As blogged previously, China is now, broadly, in a similar position to that of the USA in the 1930s— an economic superpower but not yet a world military superpower. The USA, by contrast, is now in the position that the Western and Central European powers and empires were in at that same time, prior to the Second World War that toppled Europe from its rightful place.

Apparently, by someone called Hollis, not by “Jack Monroe”. She will not sue Lee Anderson. She would lose heavily.
Sweden is now full of useless and/or hostile trash, just like the UK. Jews such as Barbara Lerner Spectre were behind much of it in Sweden, and Jews and Jewish groups are behind much of the “refugees welcome” propaganda in the UK too.
Those Swedes (and British) who still support mass immigration and a mixed-race society can mostly be dismissed as total “shitheads”.
Mostly maternity services, i.e. blacks (mostly) who come to the UK to have babies at NHS expense, and so that their offspring will be able to get UK passports later. What a ******* disgrace that the System allows this to happen— and indeed encourages it.
I still doubt that anyone can feed a family of 4 adequately (for a whole week) for £20, but who knows—maybe I am mistaken…
“Wars and rumours of wars“?
The next great war is in the pipeline, being pushed by, mainly, secretive Western cabals and ruling circles. The Jewish element, though only part of that, is unmistakably there; you only have to look at Twitter. The “Ukrainian” regime in Kiev is predominantly (and even confessedly) Jew-Zionist, and is headed by the Jew Zelensky, a quasi-dictator as well as figurehead.
Those cabals want to not only hit Russia but to control its development into the future. We are still in the first third of the 5th Post-Atlantean Age. Russia will lead the better or more advanced part of the world in the 6th Post-Atlantean Age, from about 3500 AD. The evil powers behind those secretive cabals want to stunt Russian development of soul so as to control whatever emerges in the next Age.
[Professor Sir John Curtice, in the Daily Telegraph]
“...in an immediate general election“. “Immediate“…aye, there’s the rub, because there is not going to be an immediate general election.
True, it is hard to see what rabbit can be pulled out of the hat in the next 20 months, but anything is at least possible. As the Professor concedes. “In truth, we are in unchartered waters. Given the unprecedented scale of the fall in Tory support, nobody can be sure what the outcome in seats would be if the current polls were reflected in the ballot boxes.”
As I noted yesterday, “Jack Monroe” really is the “grift” that keeps on giving or, rather, taking…
Oddly, “Jack Monroe”, who is now back on Twitter after her latest “exhausted” “mental breakdown” (or cosplay thereof), the third or fourth one in a year, I think, is now tweeting that her non-existent “libel case” against Conservative MP Lee Anderson is “a very clear-cut case, according to my lawyer” (who may or may not be self-promoting Jew, Mark Lewis, who acted for her years ago in the child’s-play Katie Hopkins matter).
The remarks Lee Anderson made about “Jack Monroe” may have been libellous on their face, but not only would Lee Anderson have the defence of those remarks having been true, and other defences perhaps, but also there is the time limitation. The remarks were made on or before mid-May 2022, so any action brought has to be started (proceedings issued) by the same date in 2023.
So far, according to what I have seen on Twitter, not only have no proceedings been brought, but no pre-action correspondence has been received by either of the two suggested defendants, Lee Anderson and (political commentator) Martin Daubney.
Practice notes suggest that any libel action begun very late in the day will result, even if successful, in costs consequences against the claimant (“plaintiff”, as was).
There now stand 3 months only before mid-May 2023.
My opinion? As blogged previously— that “Jack Monroe” will not be suing Lee Anderson or Martin Daubney. Which raises the question of how much money “Jack Monroe” raised from mugs on the promise of her suing Lee Anderson et al, and where that money went.
Msm idiots, this time from the ipaper, still regarding that copperbottomed fake as some kind of “expert” on poverty…

Unfortunately, “Jack Monroe” is pretty ignorant about almost everything, including what is or is not libellous, and what is or is not actionable libel.
Incredibly, as of today, two more utter mugs have signed up to send “Jack Monroe” money via Patreon; so that’s 500 mugs, all sending her between £3.50 and £44 a month, every month. As “earners” (or scams) go, not bad…
…and tweeter “@AngeinParis” is not only “in Paris” but also, despite saying that she is “still poor“, lives in fact in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, one of the most affluent suburbs of Paris. Typical “Jack Monroe” fan, in fact. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Germain-en-Laye.
Why would “Jack Monroe” give up the “cosplay” that is “earning” her (via Patreon alone) between £1,750 and £22,000 a month? Probably around £6,000, each and every month. Plus any writing for newspapers and magazines. Plus interviews. Plus stray donations. Plus royalties on her 7 or 8 books (though the latest one has bombed, now that her credibility is shot).
As already noted, as of today, the number of Patreon “patrons” (utter mugs) sending money to the “Bootstrap Cook” is exactly 500.
Which makes the offer to her of (presumably, paid) writing work, made by the ipaper (the short version of the Independent) even less comprehensible. “Jack Monroe” has no credibility left (there again, though, neither has the ipaper!)…
Snake-oil salesman Farage is of course correct here, though it does not say much for his alma mater, Dulwich College (he did not attend university), that he uses the verb “portend” wrongly (using it as a noun)— the correct word would have been “portent“.
Still, Farage is quite right about the System importation into the UK of completely useless and often dangerous and/or hostile blacks, browns, and others.
Incidentally, I notice that the above tweet was retweeted by a tweeter calling himself “Ian Millard” and “@IanMillard100”.
In case anyone is wondering, that “Ian Millard” is not me. I presume that it is just someone with the same, or a similar, name. When I was on Twitter (until the Jew element had me expelled in 2018), there was yet another “Ian Millard” also on Twitter, who worked, I believe, in a small Tesco store in Bedfordshire, and who (no doubt to his great irritation) often received some of the flak put up on Twitter by Jew-Zionists, “antifa” idiots, and other mindless nuisances, and intended for me.
“A Christian nurse was left with ‘crippling anxiety’ after she was ‘bullied’ by ‘woke‘ NHS chiefs for saying that being white doesn’t make you racist.
Amy Gallagher, 34, a mental health nurse from Orpington, Kent, was on a forensic psychology course training to be a psychotherapist at the Portman clinic, which is part of The Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust.
In an exclusive interview with MailOnline Amy has revealed how NHS bosses caused her ‘crippling anxiety’ after she challenged their ‘racist’ and ‘offensive’ views in lectures she was forced to attend.
Lecturers at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust told her ‘whites don’t understand the world’ and ‘Christianity is responsible for racism because it’s European’ in a series of ‘politically biased’ talks.
One of the Tavistock’s seminars was even called ‘Whiteness — a problem for our time’ and included a description on the Trust’s website that ‘the problem of racism is a problem of whiteness’.
When Amy challenged these controversial views she was ‘bullied’ by staff and suspended from the course, pending an investigation into whether she is safe to work with patients.
Almost a year later, no investigation has taken place.
It means her dream of becoming a psychotherapist is hanging by a thread.
As if that wasn’t enough, a course lecturer also tried to get her banned from her day job as a practising mental health nurse.“
“Whites don’t understand the world“? Do they mean the world we, the white Europeans, largely created, certainly in the past 2,000 years?
Who exactly were the guilty? What race-groups were they from? They shouldc be named and more than merely shamed.
We need a revolution, a social-national revolution in this country. I think that it could happen. People have been pushed and pushed, pushed against the wall. Look at that report (and hundreds of similar cases); look at Knowsley and the whole continuing migration-invasion; look at what happened at the Tate (now “Tate Britain”). People are sick of it all, and before long will be saying “...and I’m not going to take it any more!“. We need to deal with all of the **** at once.
Also, look at the state of the police, the judicial bench, and the Westminster monkeyhouse.
Two fakes. A “Conservative” fake, Lee Anderson, who wants to say that State benefits are OK or even too generous, and a “poverty expert” fake, “Jack Monroe”, who is making money (as the first fake truly remarked about her on GB News last year) “off the backs of the poor“, and cheating people in several ways.
“Jack Monroe”, the grift that keeps on giving…oh, no, wait… I meant to say “taking”…
…and, yes, 498 mugs are still each sending her between £3.50 and £44 (!) via Patreon every single month. One of the most successful grey-area “near”-frauds I have ever seen.
The by-election was caused by the standing-down of incumbent MP Rosie Cooper, a poor MP in my opinion, who at one point wanted England and Wales to institute no-jury trials (“Diplock courts”, as used in Northern Ireland) for defendants accused of politically-motivated crimes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosie_Cooper. She was also, at one time, vice-Chair of Labour Friends of Israel.
The reason why Rosie Cooper stood down (at the age of 72) was because she will now be getting two or three times her MP salary, as head of an NHS Trust.
As to the inevitable Labour victory in the by-election, no surprise. Labour’s vote share of 62.3% compares to 52.1% in 2019.
The other candidates did not shine. Reform UK got 4.4%, but there again, its predecessor Farage-vehicle, Brexit Party, scored 4.3% in 2019. The Greens and Libdems ended up more or less where they had been at the 2019 election; both lost their deposits, as did Reform UK (and the Monster Raving Loony).
What can we take away from this? That Labour remains fairly solid in at least some historically-Labour areas, that the Conservative Party is going nowhere in such areas, and that the two main System parties face no threat from Reform UK, the LibDems, or the Greens.
The most interesting fact about the by-election is that the turnout was only 31.4%; well over two-thirds of the eligible electorate could not be bothered to vote. If a party were to exist that could energize the remaining 68.6%, it might be a different story.
We are sliding towards a situation in which the Western powers may find themselves in direct conflict, meaning war, with Russia. I have blogged about the madness of that, which is being driven mainly by secret cabals and ruling circles in the West. The Jewish element is prominent, as it was before other senseless (but for “certain types” very profitable) wars, such as the First and Second World Wars.
Let us pray that the next secretly-planned war does not happen. I want to examine briefly what would happen later, if any such conflict were to happen.
Were a truly major war to happen between the NWO powers and Russia, if that war went nuclear and no matter who might claim “victory”, the fact is that that would leave China in a position of world supremacy.
It might be said that China today is a massive regional military power, but already a world economic superpower. That position mirrors that of the USA between the end of the American Civil War (1864) and the entry of the USA into the Second World War in 1941 (some may argue earlier, when the USA entered the First World War in 1917, but I prefer 1941).
Until 1941, the American economic leadership of the world had not been translated into military reach worldwide. China is now in a similar position.
True, the American economy is still —arguably— in first place, if not exactly triumphant but, before the Second World War, the European economies also held sway over much of the world, exercising that power via the European empires— British, French, Dutch, and the smaller ones: Italian, Spanish etc, the German Empire having been broken up and given to others after the post-1918 Versailles Conference.
In 1939, the USA was the challenger or upstart power, but today its own world power is challenged, not by Russia but by China, which was, until the fall of socialism in 1989, of relatively little importance.
Incidentally, the fall of socialism happened in China too, though it was disguised in form. The form remained, but the content changed.
Now look at China! Its military and naval power is still regional rather than that of a true superpower, but for how long?
If there is a war between Russia and the Western powers, China will pick up the pieces, first of all in Russia.
Russia has had a demographic problem for decades, even before the fall of socialism in 1989 (officially, in Russia, 1991). Average death of men before age 60, women somewhat later and, together with that, the very low birthrate.
Chinese people have been gradually infiltrating into the former Soviet Far East and Eastern Siberia for over 30 years; traders, farmers etc. Even now, the borders of Russia are secure not through Russian power but because China prefers not to use its power. Not yet, that is.
In Western Europe and including the UK, the Chinese influence becomes ever stronger, inflated by the mass immigration that we have seen and continue to see. The “Boris”-idiot government invited 5 million Hong Kong Chinese to settle in the UK. That dwarfs the cross-Channel migration-invasion.
It might be argued that Chinese immigrants (especially from Hong Kong) are “useful” as opposed to the Albanians, Somalis and Afghans etc coming across the Channel in small boats. Perhaps so; little or no argument on that, but such vast numbers as in the projected Hong Kong influx have an influence on society which cannot be denied.
I want the European peoples to join with the Russian people to form the foundation for a later super-race. That cannot happen easily if Europe and Russia are flooded with other peoples, whether the blacks and browns now flooding Europe, or an even more enormous Chinese influx.
Having said that, one could perhaps see some advantages to an overall Chinese rule over Russia and Europe, if limited in time especially. The Jew-Zionist influence would be cut back or destroyed, for one thing. Also, there would be a curtailing of American influence generally across Europe. The Chinese could not rule directly over all of Eurasia; they would have to appoint suitable national satraps. Perhaps here is where— or rather how— social-nationalism can finally rise up again over Europe.
Russia was ruled by its own Imperial power, then by (mainly Jew-engendered) Sovietism. Those are now both now merely passages in Russian and world history. Russia was forced to its knees in the 1990s, and “Putinism” is quite clearly merely (and like Yelstsin’s shambolic, corrupt, and largely Jewish-owned society of the 1990s) a transitional phase.
Look at the embarrassing and bloody fiasco in Ukraine, a product of the ill-discipline, corruption, and disorder in, not only the Russian Army and GRU, but in Russian society itself.
Ukraine should have and could have been taken over swiftly, and almost bloodlessly.
The worm in Russian society, eating it from within, is not new. It has existed for hundreds of years. It existed within Sovietism, and had destroyed all but the shell of that by the late 1970s. The Jewish aspect was prominent in that, but far from the only matter of importance.
A multiform decadence. Alcohol was also a large part of the problem. Even Andropov and (a very different type) Gorbachev were helpless to reform the Soviet Union, meaning Soviet society. The rot had gone too far even for the lash to be effective, were it even capable of being used by a decadent political establishment.
Ideological emptiness also lies at the heart of the Russian problem as it now is. Old-style religious faith and loyalty to Tsar (“Orthodoxy, Autocracy, Nationality“), and Marxism-Leninism too, are gone forever. Mere Putin-style faux-nationalism can replace neither.
I have no faith that Russia could resist Chinese takeover; I wish I had. However, China will no doubt wait until the NATO/NWO-Russia conflict plays out, then probably just gradually take over, like an incoming tide.
Only the Aryan can give life. Only European people have the inbuilt, inherent, ability to mutate over time into a new and more advanced race-form. God grant that we find the way, whatever happens on the military-political front.
Both either idiots or tricksters. Food for 11p (“Jack Monroe”)? Nonsense. Food for 30p (Lee Anderson)? Also nonsense. Even a slice of toast and a can of cheap sardines costs nearly a pound. This race-to-the-bottom has to end.
As Hitler said, “we will not give up that which makes life worth living“.
I think that this desperate clutching at straws, or at men and women of straw, is a symptom of the fact that old-style socialism died in and after 1989, and so many many people have latched onto these pathetic examples of pseudo-socialist fake “protest” etc: Owen Jones, “Jack Monroe”, Julia Grace Patterson, Billy Bragg etc.
The main “grifters” make a living out of a certain “constituency” (quite directly— “Jack Monroe”, Owen Jones, and the Julia Grace Patterson creature all have Patreon, PayPal, and other donation-sources), but in the absence of real socialism (of any kind) they and their followers have attached themselves to one fake “cause” after another: “Black Lives Matter”, “Remain/Rejoin” (EU, a finance-capitalist bloc), “LGBTQXYZ”, “Ukraine”, “Covid” (the facemask nonsense etc), “refugees welcome”, Greta Nut and the other similar cretins.
Their natural home of the past, the Labour Party, has become very obviously (with the Conservative Party) just the other side of the same coin. They are politically homeless, and have no real ideology. Which is why they obsess about “deplatforming” those whose ideas they dislike. They cannot see that they have become both politically and socially irrelevant, an historical cul-de-sac.
Incidentally, the self-describing “Left” should note the words below:
My reaction to such a poll is divided into “hope the fake Conservatives get wiped out” and/but “Ah, a Labour victory means that Jew-Zionist doormats and anti-British wannabee dictators such as Yvette Cooper, Rachel Reeves, and even thick Jamaican ignoramus David Lammy, will be in the Cabinet…“
If the Con Party cannot find a way of being (seeming) more credible soon, they’re toast.
If someone entirely opposed to me says “the sun is shining” and I look for myself and see that the sun is shining, then I agree— the sun is shining.
That first tweeter, “@DebbyHallett_LD” is probably fairly typical of many of those that are favourable to “Jack Monroe”: retired, a LibDem councillor, probably comfortably-off (living, as she does, in the generally affluent Vale of White Horse, Oxfordshire).
Well-meaning, no doubt, but more or less asleep. What’s the betting that she also supports the migration-invasion, “Black Lives Matter”, wearing facemasks, and “Ukraine” (the Kiev regime)?
I have blogged previously about that Kafka-esque “service”, HMRC. ‘Nuff said, and thankfully I have not had any need to engage with that shambles for a decade or more now.
To be fair to her, that Debby Hallett tweeter does seem to be very concerned about the English countryside, and Nature, and is helping via her local council work. It is all too easy not to see what positive sides people have.
…and the main reason that “Jack Monroe” is not “poor” is because (as of today) 498 utter mugs are still each sending her between £3.50 and £44 a month in cash; tens of thousands of pounds per month in toto.
This is an idea I have discussed in the past on the blog: Russia to absorb the part of Ukraine (about or nearly half, ignoring Crimea) which lies east of the Dnieper river; the present regime in Kiev to move to Lvov and rule from there the west and southwest of Ukraine.
Kiev is a problem, lying as it does on the Dnieper. It is historically bound to Russia (after all, Ukraine as a state only goes back to 1991), but its status is unlikely to be agreed upon. Its (pre-war) population of 3M is about 8% or more of the whole population of the Ukraine.; it is the 7th-biggest city in Europe.
If you have not worked out yet that Paul Mason (part-Jew, and part of the System propaganda output) is not anything other than a fake “revolutionary” or “radical”, then look again. Yes, he wants Labour to increase defence spending, now that the NWO project in Ukraine is ongoing…
Not that I oppose defence spending, in principle, but it matters what it is for…
Late tweets seen
I may be wrong but suspect that tweeter “@FauxArmz” is one of the many “Jack Monroe” “sock accounts”.
Quite. I have blogged about that case previously, and more than once. Katie Hopkins was very silly and (like quite a few people) think that money spent on (good) legal advice is wasted…
The mere fact that someone as stupid, uncultured, and (in any real sense) uneducated as Liz Truss could hold the status, first as Foreign Secretary (under “Boris”-idiot), then actually as (or posing as) Prime Minister, should tell us very directly how broken the whole political and governmental system of the UK has become. The same is true when you look at her Chancellor of the Exchequer, Woollyhead Trussbanger (Kwasi Kwarteng).
Was just watching one of those Michael Portillo rail journeys on TV, Vienna to Trieste. Interesting. Vienna railway station looks better now than the old one that I saw a couple of times in the 1980s.
More interesting to me was when Portillo mentioned that, in the several decades before the First World War, the population of Vienna had increased by 5x, but that the Jewish population of Vienna had increased by no less than 35x! That explains much.
Apart from anything else, older British people do not want to work for rubbish pay or, if on better pay, to be taxed through the nose so that money in huge amounts can be wasted on the sort of rubbish we saw during the “panicdemic” of 2020-2021, or on migrant-invaders posing as “refugees”, or on any other rubbish.
I agree with them (though I am now 66 anyway): I say— live on a lower spend-level, re-evaluate, live (as far as you can) off-grid (or at least cut off from the HMRC, DWP, professional and other leeches such as lawyers, accountants, estate agents etc), and plot the end of this society while seeding a new one.
“The city [Bakhmut] sits on an important confluence of supply routes and, when fighting started at least, was seen as a vital staging point for assaults further into Donbas – particularly the nearby cities of Slovyansk and Kramatorsk.
Now, though, the battle is more symbolic than practical. Most analysts agree the blood price that Russia has paid trying to take Bakhmut – thought to be more than 100 troops per day – is not worth the value of capturing it.“
Perhaps but, if that city is so unimportant, why are the Kiev-regime forces also trying so hard to win there —at the cost of a similar number of casualties, probably— ?
Kiev remains the jewel in the crown. If Russia can take Kiev and Kharkov, the war will be almost over. Maybe later this year.
As I predicted, “Jack Monroe” will soon be supported only by loonies and the terminally naive.
Assuming that tweeter “@DaveMayhem” is not, er, “Jack Monroe” herself (she uses dozens of fake Twitter accounts).
In a way, the whole “Jack Monroe” thing has become a quite clever near-fraud, which has extracted rather large amounts of money overall.
Incidentally, that “DaveMayhem” tweeter (“Jack”?) uses the irritating Americanism “hate on“, rather than simple “hate“. Another black mark.
I have no idea whether “@ChrissieClarky” is another “Jack Monroe “sock account” or just another pro-“Jack Monroe oddity. Birds of a feather flock together, after all.
Actually, the “mental health” defence is quite clever because, first of all, it enables “Jack Monroe” to do more or less as she pleases— take money from the naive and well-meaning, drink herself silly, take drugs, spend money (mostly donated) like a drunken sailor etc; secondly, it gives a “reason” for the above defaults and, thirdly, makes any critics (or even those just trying to get their money back) seem like “bullies” and “trolls”.
When “Jack Monroe” closes down her Twitter account (as she has done at least three times even in the last few months) her supporters blame “trolls“, “bullies” etc, rather than noticing that, that way, she can avoid answering embarrassing questions about her extraction and misuse of money…
I see plenty of the well-meaning saying that “Jack Monroe” should stay off Twitter, and/or get “help”. Why would she do that? It has been Twitter, and her whole social media facade, that (together with msm promotion) has built her “career” as a supposed champion of the food-poor, and has given her (via Patreon etc) an income of —at least— several thousand pounds a month and possibly as much as £40,000 a month, but probably around £6,000 a month.
There were at one time 800 “mugs” paying “Jack Monroe” between £3.50 and £44 a month via Patreon alone! Partly due to Jewish TV cook Nigella Lawson’s promotion of her; Jay Rayner, the Jewish restaurant critic, was also applauding her at one time, but seems to have belatedly seen the light in recent months.
Even at time of writing today, 497 utter mugs are still signed up to her Patreon “grift”. That is actually a couple more than yesterday! Average (?) £10 a month = about £5,000 a month. A “nice little earner”…
Back in May 2022, “Bootstrap Cook” was threatening all and sundry (including MP Lee Anderson) with her Jewish lawyer, but since then the lawyer in question (Mark Lewis), who may or may not be retained at present, has not emerged from his kennel to bark at anyone, at least not publicly, and it is now pretty obvious that, despite more “Jack Monroe” Twitter lies from time to time, Lee Anderson and Martin Daubney are not going to be sued by her.
Peel away the lies from “Jack Monroe” and there is nothing left, it seems.
More fake “refugees” (migrant-invaders)
So the biggest groups are Albanians and Indians now? Are any of the bastards arriving in rubber boats even arguably “refugees”? I doubt it.
Partly true, though not the full picture. There is too much housebuilding, especially in the south of England; there is too much pesticide/herbicide use; the water companies are a disgrace; there is still a push for ever-more-intensive farming.
That stupid bastard, Tobias Ellwood, will not be happy until the UK is a stinking radioactive ruin.
I begin to think, looking at him now, that he is possibly part-Jew; not sure.
The msm has started to report the absolute epidemic of persons, not infrequently even young people and/or sportsmen, dying suddenly, usually from heart attacks, but is still not correlating those deaths with take-up of the “Covid” “vaccines”.
I blogged a while ago about my own two younger brothers (two and three years younger than me, so in their early/mid sixties), one living in the London area and one in Sydney. Both lifelong and avid golfers, in one case also an amateur player of team sports, both “vaccinated”, both “boosted”, and both taken to hospital last year as emergency cases, having suffered heart attacks (and neither ever having had any history of heart or circulatory problems).
As already blogged, both of my brothers had to have heart by-pass operations (one a triple by-pass), and both did recover, but compare that to me, who has had a fairly or even very sedentary lifestyle for the past 13-14 years, and who takes no real exercise, though I do try to eat a relatively healthy diet most of the time, drink only modestly these days, and do not smoke (or, needless to add, abuse illegal drugs in any way).
Admittedly, I have done regular exercise in the fairly distant past, pre-2000— swimming a mile every couple of days (for much of the late 1980s and also the 1990s); Taekwando (mid-1980s); snorkelling; almost-daily running (late 1970s); trekking in Ireland and Wales etc (late 1970s, 1980s, 1990s); also, occasional other exercise in the 1980s and 1990s (parachuting, scuba etc).
Having said that, no-one who saw me, or a photo of me, in the past 10, maybe 20, years would imagine that I had ever done any exercise! Neither have I had any “Covid” “vaccination” or “booster”; in fact, I have actively resisted the official “invitations”.
I have never had “Covid” (or maybe I have, for a few weeks only, last year…not sure), and I have —as yet— not collapsed with a heart attack; I doubt that I shall.
More newspaper stories:
Well-deserved, no doubt.
In a way, it is incredible that “Jack Monroe” ever built any sort of public following, looking at the food she usually produces, and the obvious fakery around it (“I can make food for 11p!” and “I can feed a family of four well on £20 a week” etc).
“…and then there were none“…
Exactly. “Jack Monroe” is a kind of stage character, but purporting to be real, despite everything being fake, meaning her “backstory”, her lifestyle, her ever-shifting sexuality, her very limited cooking skills, her behaviour, her fluctuating politics, and indeed her very name.
As blogged previously, the typical “Jack Monroe” supporter is over 50 and probably over 60, probably though not necessarily female, not “poor”, not “struggling”, white English or Irish, or sometimes Scottish, and in many cases —though certainly not all— with mental health problems. I have yet to see any of “the young” (say under-30) or any non-whites, or anyone genuinely “poor”, supporting her. “Reasonably comfortably-off Guardian and Observer readers” probably covers most of that waterfront.
The UK is so screwed now that it is hard to believe. The social care sector is disordered to an extent that is much worse than a bad joke, because far too serious; as for the NHS, it is plainly not functioning properly; nor is it administered properly. It is really not good enough for some people to keep bleating Owen Jones-style trivialities about “defending our NHS” etc. “Our NHS” is to a large extent a disgrace now.
John McTernan is always wrong about everything. The msm should havce kicked him into the gutter long ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McTernan. Incidentally, since the Grenfell Tower blaze, McTernan has stopped advocating the near-abolition of the fire service. Waste of space.
They are violence and conflict. “Character is destiny” [Heraclitus].
As to pathetic Sinn Fein and the other Irish parties, which are acting as puppets of the New World Ordcer and the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, what can one say? De Valera and Michael Collins must be turning in their boggy graves…
Same in the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark etc.
They should be prevented from reaching our shores, by State force if necessary,
This week I did not do so well: 4/10, same as political journalist John Rentoul. I only knew the answers to questions 2, 4, 9, and 10 (the same ones that John Rentoul got right). I would have got No. 3 —the “Northern tart” question— right too, but I just could not recall it.
LIttle pro-Israel monkey-on-a-stick Sajid Javid wants to charge patients for seeing a GP or visiting A&E departments.
He himself is standing down at the next general election. If it becomes widely known that charging for NHS services is the “Conservative” Party direction of travel, the already-anticipated loss of Conservative Party seats might be historically large, even if the NHS is not performing properly at present.
Incredible that parts of the msm are still promoting the “Bootstrap Cook”.

“The road to Hell is paved with good intentions“, as we know. The proposed rules no doubt aim at giving the American “poor” a better diet instead of the diabetes-2-tending (and generally unhealthy) one that includes white bread and “American cheese” [a particular kind of processed cheese sold to the public as “Kraft slices” etc: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_cheese].
The price, though, is freedom of choice; and the other restrictions, such as “one car per family”, are obviously repressive, though of course in many countries only the wealthier part of the population(s) have even one car. Poverty is relative.
“Bootstrap Cook” has raised only one person out of “poverty”— herself (and quite possibly not even that).
Both true, and that is before you even think about “Bono”, Bob Geldof etc…
As the psychiatrist in one episode of Fawlty Towers remarks, “there’s enough material there for an entire conference“.
More accurately, “it” may be defamatory but, if “true”, is not actionable defamation.
That “@blackwolfski” tweeter is just so typical of those who have a whole fake worldview of “woke”-ism. Akin to wearing a jacket of msm lies: supports “Jack Monroe”, Jacinda Ardern, Labour Party drones etc, and is entirely impervious to any “unapproved” truths. Note the faux-serenity and faux-“concern” of his (fake, “passive-aggressive”) good wishes to tweeter “@scbusiness4”.
Hard to judge to what extent that was so but, if accurate, it sounds like very bad behaviour (to say the least).
Tweeter “@jimellis123” is another very typical “Jack Monroe” supporter-type: the man of 50+ or 60+, retired or unemployed (as it seems), not seemingly poor or “struggling” (except possibly with mental “issues”); socio-politically— narrow-minded. Also, the “passive-aggressive” smugness, as seen in the tweet below:
Presumably meant to be satirical, but quite likely the literal truth.
You see rubbish on Twitter about this, all about how New Zealand’s economy is “booming” etc. Well, the statistics lie, and for a very obvious reason: when you shut down a country almost completely for 2 years, the economy nosedives. Any activity at all after that seems, superficially, to be strong growth.
“Then there is her approach to Covid. Initially, the world bought into the myth that her government was a top performer in eliminating the disease.
The truth, of course, is that it’s relatively simple to quarantine remote islands. And having introduced a strategy of isolation and hard lockdown at the start of the pandemic, Ardern clung to a zero-Covid policy that was way beyond the edge of reason.
Her government shut down businesses, closed entire towns if a small outbreak of the virus occurred, and forced New Zealand citizens who happened to be abroad when the pandemic struck to apply to enter their own country, with only a tiny number of places available via an online lottery system.
At first, the policy was popular, with Ardern using Facebook Live sessions to communicate with the nation in a crumpled jumper, after putting her daughter to bed, in a manner that struck a chord with the public. Indeed, in the 2020 election, her party polled almost 50 per cent.
Yet, as time went on, opposition to this sometimes cruel policy (for which exemptions were only available for celebrities and the ultra-wealthy) grew, with critics lambasting a sluggish vaccine rollout and pointing out that the only world leader more bloody-minded in holding on to a strategy of eliminating Covid at all costs was communist China’s president Xi Jinping.
The crescendo of division and unrest saw huge demonstrations outside parliament.“
“Huge demonstrations“…which were not covered at all by the BBC, Sky, ITN, or the “Lugenpresse” System msm outlets of the UK; and what about that bit re. “exemptions were only available for celebrities and the ultra-wealthy“? Peak pseudo-socialist nonsense. As in “the virus is so dangerous that only the ultra-wealthy and —of course— ‘celebrities’ can do whatever they like”…
It reads more like a parody than real government policy, even if it is from a joke state like New Zealand.
Try telling the truth, though, to the msm drones in the UK, let alone the Twitterati mugs. They are closed to the truth, on almost any subject.
Jacinda Ardern was just another Blair-type NWO/ZOG puppet (in fact, she worked for a while as a “SpAd” at Westminster, under Blair.
The whole interconnected milieux (msm “journalism”, “fashion”, TV/radio “comedy” and “drama”, in fact TV generally) should be purged, and I do not just mean deprived of its riches and platform.
Perhaps the New Zealanders could institute a “Jacinda Day”, akin to our “Guy Fawkes Day”, in which an effigy of “Jacinda” might be immolated in some way that produces few “emissions”… A kind of “damp squib” fire that produces little light or warmth. Symbolic, you might say…
“Far right“? Oh, they mean people not totally brainwashed by NWO/ZOG propaganda:
Only (sort–of) joking… but then, Sinn Fein/IRA has become a joke anyway, a kind of —superficially— more militant SNP or Plaid Cymru.
The police should be investigating all that. Why should a black woman in Bristol be facing trial on very similar facts yet “Jack Monroe” not only not investigated but even still being promoted by some of the msm?
A typical “Jack Monroe” supporter might be a woman of about 60 years old, not badly-off, pretty ignorant but thinking herself rather educated, and living in some suburban or rural area; a Guardian reader, pro the Kiev regime, pro the facemask nonsense, needless to say “anti-racist” etc. Or a male, or LGBTQXYZ, equivalent, possibly retired, possibly a business owner in a modest way, probably “woke” etc. Certainly not “poor” or “struggling”.
The first part of that is plainly not libellous even on its face.
The second part may or may not be.
How is saying that “Jack Monroe” “makes more money than the Prime Minister” libellous at all, even if not true? Answer: it isn’t.
So she claims to be “still suing” Con MP Lee Anderson. I wonder. So far, according to Lee Anderson, he has not received any pre-action correspondence as required under the Civil Procedure Rules.
An action in defamation must be brought within a year of the triggering cause, but even then is still expected to be brought expeditiously; in lieu of that, there may be costs consequences.
“Jack Monroe” still has, in theory, 3-4 months in which to bring proceedings, but I doubt whether they will be brought or, if brought, would be successful.
Can anyone rely on any statement put out by “Jack Monroe”? I think not.

The “Jack Monroe” scandal rolls further on…
My guess is that “Jack Monroe” may even get a solicitor to send a “Letter before Action” to Lee Anderson, which will help her to continue to plead for money im various ways, and keep her in the news, so maybe attracting more mugs to subsidize her. There will, however, be no actual issuance of proceedings against Lee Anderson or Martin Daubney. If I am wrong about that, and proceedings are actually issued, that will eventually turn out to be a very expensive error for the “Bootstrap Cook”.
Actually, she goes lower. Lee Anderson claimed that 30p can feed someone at least for a day or part of a day; “Jack Monroe” claims 11p! Is there a prize for the first idiot or “grifter” who claims to be able to make a 1p lunch?
