It occurs to me that, as with “the virus”, this recent crime is being used to continue “lockdown” by other means. A curfew for men after 1800 hrs is absurd, yet apparently being considered by the Scottish and Welsh pseudo-governments. England? Who knows?

A “curfew for men”, if it were actually to be enforced, would in reality be a curfew for everyone, because relatively few women walk around alone after dark anyway.

All part of “the Great Reset”? I wonder…

Christ overturned the tables of the Jew moneychangers. That is one part of the New Testament which is very relevant to the present-day.

Not sure that I agree with that: the Good, the Beautiful, and the True, are all distinct, though they may at times co-incide, or coalesce. The “Trinity of existence”?

An interesting and worthwhile point, though that Welsh house is not exactly beautiful…

This is what happens when Jews, particularly Zionists, have power over non-Jews. It may take different forms in different host-countries but the essence is similar. The extent or degree depends on the demographic percentages, mainly.

A few stray thoughts about the USA (etc)

Those who read my blog regularly will know that I have never been favourable to Trump, and for a number of reasons, despite the fact that I tweeted “in his favour” during the 2016 campaign (because Hillary Clinton and her clique wanted conflict in the Middle East against Syria and Russia, which could have ignited open Russia-USA warfare).

Well, time moves on. A Jewish cabal had my Twitter account removed in 2018; since then I have not tweeted (it’s a largely pointless activity anyway). Trump, after having been elected, proved himself nothing more than a loudly-squawking parrot in a gilded cage, and guarded by Zionist Jews. His removal at the 2020 election was, overall, formally legitimate (in my opinion), even if attended by some anti-Trump illegalities. Was it, however, truly legitimate in the wider sense? I say not.

For me, this whole question goes beyond ludicrous Trump himself. It cuts to whether the American system and way of life is actually working for either those of white European origin who mainly built the country into what it is, or indeed for the blacks and others who are —with exceptions, yes— at the bottom of the socio-economic pyramid.

The socio-economic system in the USA is an exaggerated example of that now existing in the rest of the Western world.

In the late 1980s, I think around 1987, I saw an ad in a British magazine which summed up what was happening under the Thatcher government (and in the USA under Reagan). A picture of an Old Master painting juxtaposed with a photograph of the then quite new Canary Wharf development. Under the Old Master, the legend, “work of art“, but under Canary Wharf, “the art of work“.

I suppose that Rudolf Steiner would have described that as “Ahrimanic” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahriman#Anthroposophy]. The worship of work, of money, of the material.

In the past 30+ years, that influence has become mainstream in both the UK and also the even more receptive USA. How often do we now see and hear about any group of people that they deserve more pay, profit, privileges because they are “hardworking”? All the time. School students “deserve”, we are told, to be awarded top grades (meaningless as many now are) because, yes, those teenagers are (said to be) “hardworking” even when it is patent from the pronouncements and tweets etc of many that they know very little about anything.

Likewise, groups ranging from NHS employees to schoolteachers are judged not on whether they are being organized, deployed and activated efficiently or with good results and outcomes, but on the premise that they are “hardworking”.

The other side of the coin? Those who for whatever reason are (supposedly) not “hardworking”, meaning the unemployed, disabled, artists and others not financially successful, and so on.

It is rarely examined how many of those at or near the top of the society “deserve” their privilege. One example? The UK Royal Family. The kefuffle around Harry and the Royal Mulatta has brought that into focus, with the usual protestations of how “hardworking” they all are! I suppose that some mugs believe it…

The aim of all the propaganda is, of course, to keep the working masses under control. The “virus” situation (a weaponization of a real, serious, but not existential problem) has made such control easier.

[with a few small changes, the first line could also read “(old-style) SOCIALISM”…]

Reverting to the American situation, we see that there has been an election which simply changes the deck chairs on the boat deck. Trump is out, Biden (with his even more plainly Jewish government appointees) is in.

The mass of the American people are simply not served by either major political party now. I want to focus on those of white European heritage, those who might create a better society, i.e. those who have the inherent ability to do that.

America is now majority non-white. The election of the mixed-race Obama (always called “black”, of course) was the sign that the democratic one-man one-vote system was no longer going to be any use for the white people of America on the Federal level.

Yes, Biden is a white person, but he is just a figurehead, and a puppet. Almost all of his top appointees are Jews, and the few who are not are “black” or, rather, mixed (eg Kamala Harris).

Demographics are the key. As America grows ever-more non-white, the political power will move that way too, towards the non-whites (but always under Jew-Zionist ultimate control), and towards the major cities and population hubs.

If the white people of America and (because this is not solely a race/ethnicity question) those who favour a so-called “traditional” way of life, become an ever-smaller minority, elections become less and less relevant to them. On the Federal level already, soon on the State level in some parts of the USA.

At some point, those who favour a civilized form of life and government are going to have to pull away from the USA as it now is becoming. Not just in terms of the ethnicity of the President, but also in terms of the whole finance-capitalist system that no longer serves the people (white, mixed, black, or other).

I do not foresee an immediate civil or social war, one with many casualties. This is a slow burn. Certainly the weapons which so many Americans worship are of no immediate utility. Not when the Federal authorities have tanks, jet aircraft, armoured cars, SWAT squads, the FBI etc. Still, the night is young…

Post-socialist intimidation and emergent chaos in the USA

Reminiscent of the Red Guards during the so-called “Cultural Revolution” in 1960s China. Dissidents or random victims being targeted, bullied, assaulted, even killed.

The only silver lining is that those cruel and fanatical bullies probably starved later! “Enjoy your meal!

(slightly off-topic, I have blogged before at the oddness of the apparent inconsistency: we are told that, on the national or ethnic basis, the Chinese have the highest IQ in the world, even higher than white Northern Europeans, and yet I myself have to say that almost all the Chinese I have encountered in my life have been dimwits. Anecdotal evidence, and so proving nothing very much? I wonder).

Australians are like the British from which most of them still have descent: most of them are more interested in whether their “national” teams (even if non-white) win football, rugby, cricket (etc) matches or athletic medals on the other side of the world than what is happening in their own societies. Politically blind, so easily enslaved.

Patrick O’Flynn [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_O%27Flynn] was one of the more intelligent of the “Prominenten” in UKIP. In the end, though, just a scribbler making his way. Politically irrelevant. In fact, politically rather silly.

An enemy

People who can’t even aspire to mediocrity“? Is this a case of projection?

I seem to recall that Dunt tweeted a few times about me when I had a Twitter account. He seems to be very interested in Jewish matters, “antisemitism” etc… I recall that he was supportive of the Extinction Rebellion nonsense in London (at least, that is how his tweets appeared to me). My view: he is an outright enemy of the British people, as can be seen plainly in the tweet above.

I suppose that one might just ignore the views and even the existence of someone of that type, but this person is Editor of Politics.co.uk (supposedly “impartial” political website), is sometimes seen on TV, and has at least some peripheral influence, if only because of that. A symptom of the socio-political degeneracy afflicting the UK (though not the UK alone).

Another enemy

Well , I myself am against unrestricted capitalism: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_threefolding, but unrestricted “socialism” (one example of the imbalance of supremacy of the political sphere over the economic and spiritual-cultural spheres) can be worse and has been worse. A few examples: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collectivization_in_the_Soviet_Union; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Terror; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Chinese_Famine; https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/jan/01/china-great-famine-book-tombstone; https://www.ft.com/content/6a148d26-7432-11df-87f5-00144feabdc0; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khmer_Rouge_rule_of_Cambodia

As for tweeter and enemy of European race and culture, Mike Stuchbery, self-described “historian”, “journalist” etc, I have blogged about him previously: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/

An “antifa” cheerleader now based in Stuttgart, who claims, risibly, to “work three jobs” but in fact travels around Germany enjoying himself and tweeting when not sitting in cafes. Raised nearly £12,000 via GoFundMe with his collaborator “@antifashwitch” of Derbyshire, ostensibly in order to sue Tommy Robinson.

A poorly-drafted “letter before action” was sent to “Stephen Yaxley-Lennon” (Robinson’s real or original name) in November 2019 by a one-man Pakistani law firm in the North of England, but Robinson never was sued (I doubted from the first that he would be: see my blog posts), and it is not known what happened to the monies donated by nearly 700 mugs: https://www.gofundme.com/f/sue-tommy-robinson

Why indeed? It’s a puzzle…

That’s Lisa Nandy, part-Indian Westminster “Labour” MP and (needless to add?) a member of Labour Friends of Israel…

Don’t imagine that Europe is different, that the UK is different. If there were, scaling it up, tens of millions of Jews in or near the UK, we, the British people, would be the ones directly suffering in an open-air concentration camp and being rocketed for the slightest resistance.

Not sure about that “shadows of their former selves“: admittedly, I have never seen Dead Ringers or The Now Show, and have only seen Have I Got News For You a couple of times, but that was years, even decades ago, and I thought it pathetic and contrived then. Is it even less interesting now? Perhaps it is. The least funny or witty? Paul Merton. Yet they all get paid millions. Just a completely rotten system overall.

Coronavirus
The latest “virus” nonsense: a group of about 30 teenagers went to a Greek island from Plymouth. On returning, they were tested and nearly half had been infected. A few had sore throats, the others no symptoms at all. None need or needed hospital treatment. This “outbreak” was reported as major news by the BBC! “Soviet radio”…In fact I think that Radio Moscow in its most propagandistic phase might have been no worse than the BBC now is.

The caption left out the last few words, “and never will contribute anything to this country.” They and their descendants will be, at best, a millstone round the necks of the British people; at worst (quite likely) also enemies of the British people.

Not sure where Griffin gets “over-educated” from! The few police with whom I have had any contact in the last decade have been laughably under-educated in any real sense, though it may be that Griffin refers to the paper “degrees” that everyone and his dog now has. After all, to take but one example, the half-caste “Conservative” Party MP, James Cleverly (now a Minister of State, no less!) has a “degree” in “Hospitality Management” from some degree mill or other.

That goes at least some way to the situation characterized in Chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation.

I knew someone whose father fought against the Bolshevik forces in that war. From East Prussia. Like much of the true history of Europe in the 20th Century, that episode is all but forgotten, certainly by the mainstream. A certain (((cabal))) has hijacked modern history…

I do not know the whole story of the above, but it is, in the contemporary phrase, both shocking and unsurprising. The majority of the white people (the “formerly known as British”) of the UK are complicit in their own swamping and subjugation.

The only quibble I would raise about claiming “exemption” is that it tends to legitimize the —invalid— secondary legislation upon which the facemask nonsense diktat is based.

The thug shown above is, despite not being a Jew, a pro-Israel fanatic in Scotland, seen below giving out Israeli propaganda in Glasgow:

[photo: Daily Record]

A senior figure in a pro-Israel group faces losing his job as a religious studies teacher – after allegedly posting anti-Semitic slurs online…However, his supporters have told the standards watchdog the site was a decoy created to lure bigots into making illegal comments.” https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/re-teacher-faces-sack-over-22528812

That’s what Zionist Jews and their non-Jew doormats do: they try to entrap anti-Zionists and social nationalists (etc) into making comments or remarks, then they go straight to Twitter, employing organizations, professional regulators, even police, and scream, loudly, “ANTISEMITISM!” “ANTISEMITISM!”, despite the fact that, as a Crown Court judge said in one of the Alison Chabloz appeals, “antisemitism is not a crime in England“.

Oh, and note the “journalism”: “illegal comments” etc. Oh, yes, one cannot say anything about (((them))) in case what you have said is “illegal”….It’s fast becoming, in fact has become, a toytown police state (especially in Scotland…).

So what’s happening about that pro-Jew Scottish thug? (who, by the way, is actually the head of “religious and moral education” at a school in Ayr!]

The teaching body launched an investigation and held a panel hearing about his fitness to practise on July 15. It was recommended the case go to a full hearing yet to be scheduled. Jewish groups have rallied round Sutherland claiming he acted to “flush out” anti-Semites“.

That person is the type of individual who might even commit acts of terrorism (as might the fanatical Jews behind him). As a matter of fact, and without making allegations for which I have no proof, that person certainly looks to me like, shall we say, a “dodgy” person to be teaching in any school…

Another thought occurs to me: Father Gapon in 1905 St. Petersburg whipped up popular discontent against the government and society of the time, but was an agent of the Okhrana (secret police) trying to identify revolutionaries, yet (unwittingly?) caused a revolution that very nearly toppled the Tsar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1905_Russian_Revolution

Perhaps the efforts of this Sutherland person might backfire, actually causing people to wake up to the activities of Zionists and the like. That’s a nice idea.

The above tweet from “Viv Maier” refers to Stephen Applebaum [presently mainly @grubstreetsteve and @rattus2384 on Twitter] and Stephen Silverman [presently mainly @ssilvuk on Twitter].

Not only sadistic online trolls but conspirators connected with the sinister “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, a “charity” (officially) which organizes propaganda and snooping in the interest of Israel and the extreme Jewish lobby. It also organizes online attacks on social nationalists and others, and tries to get those opposing Israel and the Jewish lobby into trouble with Twitter, police, employers, clients etc. See: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/ and https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/

Sadly, most Labour Party members and supporters are as thick as two short planks (just like most Conservative Party members and supporters). Labour members endorsed the Jewish lobby mouthpieces Keir Starmer and Angela Rayner as leader and deputy leader after years of msm brainwashing. The last point is a reason, but not an excuse.

Look again at the tweet above. It weasels, using the term “the Labour right“, when what is meant (or should be meant) is the “Jewish lobby” or “Jewish-Zionist” and pro-Israel cabal inside the Labour Party, embedded in it and eating it away like a plague of termites. Not all are full Jews. Some are part-Jews or even (like Tom Watson, to take an obvious example) non-Jews.

Until you identify the problem, you cannot propose a solution. Still, that is a problem firstly for those still misguided enough to want to support “Labour”.

From the horse’s mouth…

You get pseudo-liberals, Jews and others whining that “Nazis burned books”, but in fact those book-burnings were few and basically symbolic. Today, in the UK, USA and EU, we see the equivalent happening right before our eyes, but few complain, or have a platform on which to complain.

Amazon has banned many many books from sale, and it has a quasi-monopoly or near-monopoly online. Anything the Jews complain about, basically, is banned now. Ebay is the same (a Jew from Iran, a US citizen, owns ebay, or so I was told years ago). David Irving was dropped by all his mainstream publishers, who pulped (and in some cases actually incinerated) his books. So who’s burning books now?…

The present (((System))) does not hold the moral high ground, and we have to be clear about that.

Tweet

Obviously, to anyone familiar with my views, I do not rate Twitter highly as a barometer of public opinion, but that tweet above has had, at time of present writing, 33,000 retweets and 216,000 “likes”, in the space of only about 10 hours.

The housing situation is dire, especially in London, and in the South generally. The answer, however, is not simply to build houses and flats which will then be occupied by migrant-invaders and their offspring. In fact, that might well encourage millions more to swamp our once green and pleasant land.

Russian proverb: “Measure seven times, then cut“. New British proverb: “get rid of migrant-invaders and others, stop more coming and breeding, then (and only then) create new high-quality towns for British people.”

Dan Hodges and the “lockdown”/shutdown

Just read this piece by faux-proletarian scribbler Dan Hodges:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8395517/DAN-HODGES-lazing-sunshine-cowering-dark-stop.html

In fact, I think that my recent blog remarks on the same subject have been at least as pertinent and arguably a better read, if I say so myself, but at least I am for once in agreement with Hodges, more or less, though it irritates that he probably got £5,000 for his article, while I blog for nothing, and pro bono publico.

About a “journalist”

Here we see one Faima Bakar, apparently a “journalist” at the Metro (that’s the giveaway “newspaper” usually chucked down by the hundreds onto the floor of Underground trains when they reach the end of the line), celebrating and laughing at the mounted policewoman injured in Whitehall yesterday.

I was reading some of her recent tweets. At best, semi-literate. Some kind of Punjabi from East London, it seems. Here is her response to the many tweeters who have been appalled at her attitude (and bias):

How is it that Faima Bakar can get a degree in English Literature, and then both train as and work as a journalist (the latter for two years), including time as a sub-editor, albeit at the Sun, while being apparently almost unacquainted with English grammar?

Well, there it is.

What a bitch.

Tweets on other subjects

It had to happen. Now that the Jewish lobby is again controlling the Labour Party, and now that Labour is more or less politically-irrelevant, the msm is no longer criticizing it. In fact, the msm loves Keir Starmer, who has a Jewish wife, and whose children are being brought up as Jewish. He does not much criticize the government in the manner of his predecessors, and those around him are all Labour Friends of Israel members.

In view of the above, it is not so surprising that Labour is now head to head with the misnamed “Conservatives”. The public has woken up to the fact that Boris-idiot is hugely out of his depth as Prime Minister, and that this Cabinet is full of complete idiots.

The problem, as always, is that the UK has a binary political system, in which two superficially opposed parties contend. When one cuckoo goes back into the clock, the other emerges from it. Labour is not doing well; the Conservatives are doing badly. However, with a general election possibly over 4 years away, Labour’s performance in both Westminster and the opinion polls is near-irrelevant.

I disagree with “lockdown” on a number of grounds, though I accept that the government should have closed (as it did, in the end) pubs, nightclubs, restaurants, race meetings and similar events, and also the Underground, bus services, train services (which it never did). Flights to the UK should have been stopped too.

I always said that eventually people would tire of the “lockdown”. What I did not fully appreciate until a month or so ago is quite how convenient “lockdown”would be for both the “chattering classes” and many of those once describable as “the working classes”.

For the truly wealthy and especially those with country houses and landed estates, there has been really no “lockdown” in terms of daily life. Nothing has changed, in the immortal words of Theresa May. For the suburban and rural chattering classes too, sipping their Chardonnay by their swimming pools, the “lockdown” has not been too hard. Many are “working from home”, which even if at the pace of “normal” work, at least saves 2-4 hours on the day via not having to commute.

Shopping via Internet has not been without difficulties, but most people in the end were served; for those actually attending supermarkets to shop, there were inconveniences but little interruption of supply once the initial panic-buying or bulk-buying wave passed.

As I have blogged previously, for many on more modest incomes, “furlough” means the same or effectively more pay for no work, no commute, no boring days at office, factory, restaurant or warehouse.

Even for the unemployed, life has been better under “lockdown”, in that the Chancellor has increased Universal Credit by £20 a week, and because the DWP has had to give up, for the duration, its unpleasant post-2010 bullying and harrying behaviours.

That means that, for many (not all), the prospect of resuming “normal” working life is not very attractive; and if there is a quasi-medical-scientific reason to delay that resumption —“second wave”, “R-rate” still high, “protecting the NHS”—so much the better. Hypocrisy not only ruling but ruling largely unrecognized.

Petticoat Lane

Just watched a 15-minute short film on the nostalgia channel, Talking Pictures TV, about Petticoat Lane Market in East London, as it was in the 1950s.

Bristol mob

A black mob in Bristol has dragged down a statue of the Bristol merchant and slave-trader Edward Colston https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Colston and dumped it in the harbour there:

Where were Bristol’s —and Britain’s— politicized, Common Purpose-led police while this was happening? Nowhere. They merely and blandly say now, to the msm, that “there will be an investigation”. Useless. Biased.

Are we able to “judge” Edward Colston, three centuries on? If so, put all historical figure on the scales.

OK. So who is next? My favourite would be Bomber Harris: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Arthur_Harris,_1st_Baronet

[above: statue of Bomber Harris in the Strand, London]
[Dresden 1945, after Allied bombing ordered and organized by Bomber Harris]

Will all statues of Roman emperors be pulled down? What about those of other ancient rulers? Alexander the Great? What about those of 18thC/19thC millowners? They treated people little better than slaves, some of them. Fortunately, most of the blacks know little of history, or we should have no statues left standing.

The English monarchs…will they be next? Charles II and Queen Anne were around at the same time as Colston. And what about Elizabeth I? Her piratical sea-captains, such as Drake, also made money out of “blackbirding”. So pull all statues of them down, too? Where does it end? With a mixed-race mob crawling over the ruins of all our cities?

More seriously, this liberty to destroy and trample on Britain’s history, given to black and multikulti mobs by the useless UK police —who in relation to white people behave like a poundland KGB— shows which side the indoctrinated police commanders are on.

I heard some useless police inspector or superintendent, “Andy”-something, on the radio news, almost exculpating the Bristol mob, and explaining why the police stood aside and let this incredible vandalism happen; apparently, it was on the basis that “it was symbolic”. I have no faith that Common Purpose bastards like that will ever protect the white people who built and still maintain this country.

This is a moment to remember, when a mob of non-European untermenschen said, to the British people, “we rule here”…

On Twitter, the usual traitors support that mob. Remember them, too.

When I was first in Moscow, in 1993, I passed several places where Soviet notables in marble and bronze had been torn down. One was Kalinin, whose massive bust in Kalininsky Prospekt (now Novy Arbat) had been ripped from its grey marble or granite plinth, leaving just the metal stalk that had previously anchored the bust to the plinth.

Tearing down of statues is something that happens during socio-political upheavals.

What I find even more infuriating is to see the “me too” Twitter mob supporting the real mob. They call white people (who have created almost everything of value in our contemporary world) “gammon”, comparing us to pigs or pig-flesh. No doubt they would object if someone called the blacks “niggers”, or the brown peoples “wogs” (etc).

Any white people using the term “gammon” for British or other white people are, quite plainly, traitors.

My concern is that, now that the rabble know that the police are pulling their punches, the canaille will be emboldened and will “push the envelope”…

ps. Here is one enemy of the British people:

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

Hey, I had another idea…the statue of that terrorist, Mandela…

Another, more subtle, traitor:

As I predicted long ago, unless we stop it, untermenschen will tear down our civilization and culture, and then crawl over the ruins…

Economic strategy after Coronavirus

I read that “financial genius” Rishi Sunak and Boris-idiot are both alarmed at what is already starting to happen economically. However, in the msm, the focus is still on NHS staff, hospitals, people doing all sorts of nonsense things at home.

I was just thinking about different industries. Transport, for one. Priti Useless is implementing a 14-day quarantine as of midnight for incoming passengers. That should have been done about 2 months ago, maybe 3. Now, all it does is kill off the airline industry.

As I blogged previously, it is hard to imagine either business or tourist travellers wanting to spend 2 weeks cooped up on arrival in the UK. Forget it.

So the UK government is bailing out airlines and support enterprises with loans, “furlough” monies etc, but has more or less guaranteed that the planes will fly empty, or with a handful of passengers per flight! Madness.

As for trains, the new serf-British are to travel only if appropriately muzzled (despite the fact that the virus wave has pretty much gone now, or passed on). Also, people are only to travel if (?) 3-6 feet from each other! Have any members of this shite “government” ever been on a commuter train?

Once again, vast subsidies are being paid out to privately-owned train companies to run services with few if any passengers aboard, and few fares collected. Again, just madness.

I do not think that most people have any idea what lorryloads of Scheiss are rolling down the road towards us…

A few closing thoughts

For white British people, the System is no good any more. While a social-national political party probably should exist, the “Parliamentary road” to survival, power and victory is more or less closed to us. We see now the bias of the System, whether in the police, the legal and court system, the political set-up, the msm (which is riddled with traitors) etc.

We see the untermenschen and rabble launching actual genocide against us, starting with our history as expressed in books, statues etc. This genocide cannot be opposed only by tweets or by readers’ comments in msm newspapers (propaganda tracts). Sooner or later, there will be an actual race/culture war.

Sad to hear that Roy Horn, of the stage act Siegfried and Roy, died. I recall seeing Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous on TV feature them, when I lived in the USA about 30 years ago. They had a fabulous villa in the desert near Las Vegas and lived there with their huge and beautiful white tigers. In general, I don’t like stage acts involving animals, but Siegfried and Roy really loved their big cats (white tigers, lions, leopards). Pity that the full episode featuring them at home is not up on YouTube at present.

Britain 2020, where free speech is being killed

This ghastly little bastard, Evan Smith [see below] has written a book attempting to weasel about preventing people from giving lectures or speeches thought unsuitable by the “anti-fascist” thug element. What this is, is an attempt to intellectually legitimize censorship and socio-political repression.

It will be noted that one Aurelien Mondon of the University of Bath, and one Gavan Titley of Maynooth University (the place in Ireland from where most of their censorious Roman Catholic priests used to be churned out), have both endorsed this new book, for what such endorsement is worth.

My view has always been that there should be absolute freedom of speech on socio-political, historical and religious topics. If others want to restrict such freedom, and make it all about who has the biggest club or the most weapons, then that is their decision, their choice and their self-judgment.

Labour continues to bump along the bottom vis a vis the misnamed “Conservatives”. Keir Starmer, dull as ditchwater, and Lisa Nandy, humourless and not particularly intelligent political-correctness banner-carrier. No chance. I suppose that both they and the Labour rank and file think that, in the UK’s unfair binary system of ping-pong politics, if people tire of Boris-idiot and his entourage, the electorate will have nowhere to go but Labour. Don’t be so sure. Look at what happened in and after 2015 in Scotland.

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/05/04/labour-is-the-party-of-the-labour-is-the-party-for/

While Labour has rarely had so many committed members and supporters, they number only about 600,000. That may seem many, and actually does make Labour the largest political party in Europe, but is still only about 1%-2% of the electorate.

2019votermigration

George Orwell tried to imagine how a less free UK might be taken over. What he did not quite foretell was that old-established liberties and norms (eg the right to leave your house, to walk in the park with a friend, to stroll on a beach with the same, the right for shopkeepers to open shops, or the right to drive in the country for a change of scenery) might be extinguished, not by Stalinist despots and grim-faced soldiers, but by incompetent Old Etonians and Oxford graduates, by a part-Jew public entertainer posing as Prime Minister, and by a kind of toytown police patrolling roads to see whether someone is “allowed” to drive to the country, or the same uniformed clowns patrolling city parks and popular beaches to lecture old couples and solitary sunbathers.

It’s that that is so bizarre: the mixture of the repressive and the clownish; the mixture of emergent police state rigour, the remnants of “policing by consent”. Those elements and, of course, the utter illogic of it all, “sanctified” by the ludicrous and pathetic officially-mandated and promoted weekly community clapping sessions…

Police state Britain, 2020

I am the last person likely to be accused of being “pro-black” and/or “socially-liberal”, but this clip, below, showing a black man shot (with a taser) by Manchester Police, is truly shocking:

What disturbs me more than anything is that the black was shot in front of his small child. Something like that could have lifelong negative psychological effects, with bad results for society too.

I do not have the facts behind what is shown, so do not want to be too swift to judge, but surely there must be an inquiry into this.

I have just now seen this, which seems to relate to the filmed incident:

“The times they are a’changing…”

The combination of social disruption and economic disruption, combined with floundering by the System parties, provides the best chance for social nationalism since the 1930s, but that opportunity can only be grounded if there exists a social-national party or movement to act as lightning rod and vanguard.

Italy has announced plans for ending its lockdown after the coronavirus-ravaged country today recorded its lowest daily death toll for more than two weeks.  

Rome recorded another 525 deaths, taking its total to 15,887 – the highest of any country in the world – however, this marked its lowest daily increase since the 427 registered on March 19.

Furthermore, the number of people in intensive care (3,977), fell by 17 since Friday, and the number of cases rose to 128,948 from yesterday’s 124,632, a lower increase than the day before.

It comes amid growing signs that Spain’s strict coronavirus lockdown may be working, as the country records its lowest death toll for a third consecutive day.” [Daily Mail]

Keir Starmer and the Labour Party

His surname is English, rather than Scottish, it seems:
https://www.houseofnames.com/starmer-family-crest

Keir is now a Scottish first name, Keir Hardie having been, of course, the main founder of the Labour Party:

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

but “Keir” was the surname of Hardie’s mother, which he kept as part of his surname, only later using it as a first name.

Keir Starmer’s parents named him after Keir Hardie:
Keir Rodney Starmer was born in Southwark, London, on 2 September 1962[5][6] and grew up in the small town of Oxted in Surrey.[7][8][9] He was one of five children of Josephine (née Baker), a nurse, and Rodney Starmer, a toolmaker.[9][10] His mother had Still’s disease.[11][12] His parents were both firm Labour Party supporters, and named him after the first Labour Party MP, Keir Hardie.” [Wikipedia]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keir_Starmer

Note:
Personal life
Starmer married Victoria Alexander, a solicitor, in 2007. The couple’s son and a daughter are being brought up in the Jewish faith of their mother.[12][61]
[Wikipedia]

There you have it: Starmer’s wife is Jewish, and his children are therefore half-Jewish (according to ordinary genetics), and simply “Jewish” according to Jewish religious practice, as well as being brought up as culturally Jewish.

So far, Starmer has appointed members of Labour Friends of Israel to Shadow Cabinet: Rachel Reeves and Lisa Nandy. Emily Thornberry is to stay in Shadow Cabinet.

EmilyThornberryIsraelLobby

I think that we can write off the Labour Party now.

Ghetto life in Israel

The Israeli state is considering sealing off “ultra-Orthodox” areas, thus creating quasi-ghetto zones within the Jewish state. Who would have predicted that?!

JewQuarterVienna1913

[above: Orthodox Jews in early 20thC Vienna]

The Guardian article also makes the point that the Orthodox Jewish areas in London may also have been major incubators for Coronavirus. The boroughs of Barnet and Harrow, as well as Brent, are in the top half-dozen Coronavirus “hotspots” not just in London but in the whole of the UK.

Coronavirus— the exit strategy

Or to put it another way, what exit strategy? It is one thing to say to people, “stay inside except for a few closely-defined outings for a few weeks“, and quite another to say “stay inside your homes for several months, and if you dare to come out even to spend an hour walking in a national park, or on the beach, or sunbathing harmlessly in a largely empty park, or driving on an empty motorway, the police will stop you, question you, fine you and may fine you as much as £1,000“…

How long is this “lockdown” going to be sustainable? I see that even the msm outlets are beginning to ask the question now.

If someone has a country estate, or even a sizeable ordinary detached suburban or smaller rural house, perhaps with gardens, a swimming pool, a tennis court, an orangerie, a vegetable garden, “staying home” is not so hard to do. For the majority of the population, stuck in small houses, flats etc, perhaps with children or bored teenagers, this “lockdown” is a house arrest which cannot continue indefinitely. At some point, before long, the Government is going to have to announce a relaxation and then an end, before people start to ignore the restrictions.

Good points by Lewis Goodall of BBC TV Newsnight (ex-Sky News):

Little Matt Hancock and others may threaten more severe restrictions, but without public consent, even the present restrictions cannot be enforced widely. The present conditions are holding because the public has been persuaded or stampeded into compliance. I think that we are just approaching 2 weeks of “lockdown”. Can the UK sustain 2 months? That would be five times as long.

The economic damage is already huge.

Tweets:

Anyone who believes that Keir Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet is anything more than a nominal “Opposition” is very naive. In 2015, the Jewish-Zionist lobby lost control of one of the previously-controlled two main System parties. After nearly 5 years, that lobby now has regained control. The Jews as a group care only that the (sort-of) “anti-Zionist” Corbyn has been removed. Hardly any Jews have voted Labour for many years.

Quite. Unreasoning fear is all around. Shoppers at Waitrose stand about 10 feet apart before they are allowed to have a trolley and enter the store, but inside they shop sometimes only a couple of feet from one another!

Likewise, the usual type of Twitter virtue-signallers continue to tweet on silly hashtags demonizing (of all targets!) people doing completely harmless things, such as walking along largely-empty beaches, almost deserted national park moorlands and forest trails etc, driving or motorbiking on almost-empty roads and motorways to places (or simply around, just to get a change of view and some fresh air).

If I had to say what unites the majority of the “Twitterati”, it would be their love of conformity, their obedience to authority, and their love of the largely-failed “multikulti” society. I suppose that is why Twitter was mainly pro-EU…

Here is a typical example, from someone calling himself “@sychodefender”:

You see the mentality. Any dissent from the “aurhorized” version of the truth is to be suppressed, and anyone not going along with the official narrative is “murdering” those unfortunate enough to die from Coronavirus. Who then is “murdering” those who, by reason of the “lockdown” (house arrest of the British people), cannot access lifesaving operations or other medical help for many other life-threatening conditions which (unlike Coronavirus) can be treated? Coronavirus can only be managed, via ventilation, not “treated” or “cured”. Who is “murdering” those people? No-one? The Government? Conformist tweeters such as “@sychodefender”/Simon Burgess? The first thing being murdered is the truth; after that, the English language.

Interesting legal case…

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8189913/Ex-MI6-spy-dirty-dossier-Donald-Trump-sued-three-Russian-oligarchs.html

It seems to me that the thing SIS/MI6 is best at is bolstering its own reputation (not by its own successful product or analysis, but via self-serving propaganda or public relations). That, and providing fairly well-paid careers for often rather mediocre members of the Oxbridge-educated middle classes.

Let’s think of a few of the less ancient SIS/MI6 failures:

  • the invasion of the Falklands; failure to warn HMG;
  • failure to warn HMG about the likely fall of the Shah of Iran;
  • failure to warn of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of socialism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe…to name but three very large-scale events.

What about SIS/MI6 successes in the past 50 years? The Gordievsky defection, I suppose, but that is or was “spy game” or “spy wars” stuff, rather than large-scale success in forecasting. The same might be said of the “Viktor Suvorov” defection from the GRU or that of Oleg Lyalin (KGB). Those were, in essence, “walk-ins”, of course, though Gordievsky “walked in” having been cultivated for some time (in Copenhagen).

Of course, it can always be said that “the successes must be kept secret”. Perhaps, but I have little doubt that many failures are also kept secret (aka “covered up”).

At some point, SIS/MI6 must be reorganized to provide useful information to government, especially on the strategic level. That might mean using more open-source material as a percentage of the whole.

Naturally, anyone who —like me— is not a member or former member of such an organization is commenting somewhat in the dark, but it is surely clear that this is not a properly-functioning organization.

Now this…

Good grief!

The Army is so desperate to fill its ranks that it is signing up recruits with a reading age as young as five. Normally, its rules bar hiring anyone with a reading age below ‘entry level two’ – equivalent to that of a child aged seven to nine.” [Daily Mail]

Last year, the Army was roundly mocked for recruitment advertisements stating ‘Your country needs you’ to ‘snowflakes, phone zombies, binge gamers, selfie addicts, and me, me, millennials’. Now it appears that some potential recruits would not even have been able to under stand the adverts – even as warfare become increasingly computerised.” [Daily Mail]

How absolutely stupid! The Coronavirus is spread via water in air, so is far more likely to be spread via exercise than via sunbathing!

“...there are concerns that public confidence could be lost if those in power with gardens and ample living space tell those who live in crowded conditions they cannot go to the park or exercise outdoors.” [Daily Mail]

This is becoming very silly (which is why 90% of “Twitterati” support the “lockdown” in an extreme way…).

If the Government and police don’t stand down these restrictions pretty soon, there will be disobedience and perhaps actual disorder. At the very least, much of the public will “just say no”, or perhaps more likely “yes repeat no”, i.e, apparent compliance but followed by the opposite as soon as the police or other busybodies go away.

The rest of Europe is already starting to exit “lockdown”…

The British government is headed by a pack of idiots that have no real idea what they are doing. Look at little Matt Hancock! His only pre-political job was “making tea” (not quite, but he was very junior) for a year at the Bank of England. Now he is a Cabinet minister! It’s mad. The present government is mad or stupid or both.

Has it peaked in the UK too?

England, Scotland and Wales have declared 434 more deaths caused by the coronavirus today, taking the UK’s total to 5,368. 

England accounted for 403 of the fatalities while Scotland and Wales independently declared 31 more deaths in the past 24 hours.

The statistics are a ray of hope as the daily death count has fallen for the second day in a row and was today the lowest it has been since March 31, when it was 381.

Today’s number is a 30 per cent drop from the 621 fatalities recorded yesterday, and a 39 per cent fall from Saturday, which was the worst day so far with 708.” [Daily Mail]

White “guilt”

Look at the article below, white masochism oozing out of it. Typical of much of the “liberal” mindset. Disgrace.

“Hope not Hate” chief snoop resigns

I suppose that most readers of this blog are aware of the mainly Jew-Zionist “Hope not Hate” organization, which is fairly well-funded, staffed mainly (certainly at the higher level) by Jews, and which has managed to worm its way into the confidence of a number of sadly thick MPs and others over the years. It even targeted me peripherally, mentioning me and my blog a couple of years ago in its “State of Hate” publication, along with David Irving, Alison Chabloz, David Icke and many others.

“Hope not Hate” even had an “undercover” operative, Patrik “The Rat” Hermansson, talk to me at a clifftop cafe overlooking the English Channel. I had been asked to meet him by a third party. The Rat was at the time using the cover of a Swedish student interested in social-national personalities in the UK.

I was mildly suspicious, but felt that I owed the third party a favour, so agreed. I had nothing to hide, and in fact belong to no political or other organizations, so why not? I made sure to keep the conversation innocuous. I had no idea that I was being (illegally) filmed and audiotaped by “Hope not Hate”. They had some stupid idea of producing a film about nationalist and social-national people in the UK and USA. In fact, they did make such a film a year or two ago but (as I predicted when I heard about it) it was a damp squib, being shown only on one or two obscure Scandinavian and Belgian stations late at night. Result, as also predicted, zero.

Now it seems that Nick Lowles, the Jew “antifascist” Witchfinder-General of HnH, has resigned.

Amusingly, Lowles became the victim of his own tactics a few years ago:

In February 2016 Nick Lowles was “de-platformed” from a National Union of Students event by NUS Black Students, which said that he was Islamophobic.” [Wikipedia]

From where does the HnH money come?

“[Sigrid] Rausing is a supporter of Hope Not Hate. On 1st December 2018 the Sigrid Rausing Trust began a grant of £450,000 over 3 years to Hope Not Hate. By that point, Hope Not Hate had received £615,000 from the Sigrid Rausing Trust.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigrid_Rausing#Personal_life

So that one woman, via the Sigrid Rausing Trust, has given and/or will give HnH a million pounds…

Sigrid Rausing is married to one Eric Abraham:[https://www.theguardian.com/profile/eric-abraham]. Ah…

Bingo…Jewish convert: https://www.pressreader.com/uk/the-jewish-chronicle/20070518/282192236555718

One can only suppose that even a woman as rich as Sigrid Rausing does not take kindly to being ripped off by grifters (as seems may have been the case with “Hope not Hate”)…

Comments seen:

By the way, this is what the “Hope not Hate” cabal said of me, in its 2018 “State of Hate” overview:

Ian Millard is a former barrister, expelled from the Bar in
October 2016 after having posted a series of antisemitic
tweets glorifying Hitler’s Nazi Party and calling the thenJustice Secretary Michael Gove a “pro-Zionist, pro-Jew
expenses cheat”.
Summary of 2017
During 2017, Millard continued to be vocal online,
especially on his website and blog where he calls for
a complete replacement of the Parliament by a “social
nationalist” government.
In February, he also spoke at the London Forum on “The
Zionist assault on freedom of expression in England”.

https://www.hopenothate.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/State-of-Hate-2018.pdf

I have to say, even if immodestly, that my tweet about “pro-Zionist, pro-Jew expenses cheat” Michael Gove has worn rather well! I can now add “cocaine abusing” to Gove’s description. Here is the little bastard, drunk or drugged or both, in the Chamber of the House of Commons:

As for Lowles, all sorts of scurrilous allegations about him are surfacing on social media, from payment of a very large salary (and “expenses”) to outright theft or embezzlement:

(Answer came there none…)

This made me laugh!

In fact, the Jews who head the various so-called “anti-racist” or “antifascist” organizations in the UK are commonly also criminals and gangsters. Look at this one, for example:

Ah well…at least that one has gone up the chimney.

Ruth Smeeth, the ex-MP (Stoke on Trent North, 2015-19), Israel lobby loudmouth, CIA/MOSSAD source and “antifa” overseer (and who is on the board of “Hope not Hate”) is descended on the maternal side from Jew gangsters in the 1930s East London razor gangs milieu. Appalling. Is she paid for her HnH “work”? If so, how much?

Lisa Nandy

Lisa Nandy has now nailed her colours to the mast, coming out as even more pro-Jewish lobby than the other two remaining contenders for the Labour leadership.

Many Labour members and supporters are sick of the way in which the Jewish lobby, via such puppets, is orchestrating the return of Labour to (((the fold)))…

Ruth Smeeth

This is brilliant! Really made me laugh! General Election 2019. The half-Jew CIA/MOSSAD source, Jewish lobby loudmouth and “Hope not Hate”/”antifa” overseer, Ruth Smeeth, discovers that she has lost her House of Commons seat (Stoke-on-Trent North: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Smeeth) and is probably permanently washed-up as a politician (click on picture):

Yes, Ruth Smeeth, former (?) “strictly protected source” at the US Embassy in London (see Wikileaks), thought that she was embedded as an MP indefinitely. Ha ha! She and her fellow-Jew MPs in Labour wanted rid of Corbyn, in fact wanted to prevent Labour from winning the 2019 General Election. “They” succeeded in that, but only at the cost of their own seats!  They sawed off the branch on which they were sitting! “I’m lovin’ it!”…

Priti Patel and her immigration proposals

Priti Patel is an ingrate: I have never seen one word from her thanking Idi Amin for taking power in Uganda, without which Priti Patel would have spent her life behind the counter of a Kampala grocery shop. Still there it is.

Now Priti Patel, as Home Secretary (yes, being at least an Israeli agent of influence is no bar to Cabinet status these days) has outlined the Boris-idiot approach to immigration. No low-skilled migrants, apparently. I have no quarrel with that, but then Priti Patel went on to say that “high-skilled” migrants with university degrees, good job offers etc are acceptable. What does that mean? I fear that it means “Indians who can work a computer”, or have “degrees” bought at great cost (with or without actual merit) in that very corrupt country, or who have family and friends willing to “offer” a “job” in the UK…

Britain should start from the default position that we only want people of, at minimum, European race and culture. After that, by all means lay down extra restrictions.

Can Britain even be called a “democracy” now?

Thanks to Jew-lobby puppet Tony Blair, Britain now has a political structure by which a political party has to be “approved” in order to exist and stand candidates at elections. The Electoral Commission does this work of repression. One example:

“Resisting Hate” is the vehicle of “Roanna” (Carleton Taylor) from Derbyshire, now on Twitter as “@antifashwitch”. Mike Stuchbery is an “antifa” cheerleader (from a distance), a violent and disturbed individual now resident in Stuttgart, Germany:

Stuchbery poses, not very credibly, as both “historian” and “journalist”.

Switzerland

What has happened to what was one of the best countries in the world? I suppose that the answer is multifold: an atheist tendency; a moneygrasping tendency; reduction of voting age to 18 —and for some elections, 16 (was once 28); enfranchisement of women (I think since the 1980s); a strong Jew/Zionist influence; the general decadence of the age; mass immigration. General vulgarity? General stupidity? Now this, as one symptom:

Scottish Daily Record

I have noticed over the years that the Scottish Daily Record is infested with Jewish lobby influence:

A few more thoughts about Andrew Sabisky

I find myself wondering again about the Sabisky affair. Strange that the newspapers have revealed few details about him. The only personal details I can glean, from various sources, have been that he was homeschooled, but also briefly attended two (presumably minor) independent schools, that he is 27 (some reports say 28) and that his father is Finance Director of the trade union, Unite. One report says, implausibly (?) that he is the father of no less than four children.

Nothing about his national or ethnic background. Nothing about where he went to university, in fact nothing about whether he did attend a university, though I suppose that he did, because almost everyone and his dog attends something at least called a university, these days. He has been referred to as an “academic”, for what that is now worth.

No detail about where he worked (if anywhere) previously. It even occurred to me that he might have been some probationary member of MI5 or MI6 who was found unsuitable. Seems incredible, but so far there is no evidence in the public domain as to what he did get up to between the ages of 18 and 27.

A sad story with lessons for us all

People who think that mass immigration has no real effect on British people should read the Daily Mirror report, below.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/mum-sobs-we-nothing-family-21489077

The family concerned has had its home repossessed by the local council. Without going into the reasons and merits of that repossession (and without examining why the acquaintances of the 15-year-old son think that it is OK to make fun of his homelessness), one can see:

  • that the council in question is staffed by idiots;
  • the effect of mass immigration on services available to British people.

Firstly, the council. The council no longer runs the school but still owns the bungalow. It does not need that bungalow for a new school caretaker. Why could the family not be allowed to stay, paying extra rent or even market rent?

The council has laid out what must have been hundreds of thousands of pounds to alternately bring the action and then to defend the result in the higher courts. Is this money well spent? The council could even, for that money, have bought at least one such bungalow elsewhere and rented it to the family in question (or to someone else).

Immigration: we see that there is very little spare accommodation available to councils, even for emergencies. When a country imports literally millions(since 1997, perhaps 11 million) and those immigrants are breeding fast, this is what happens. Hertfordshire and Essex become, in their urban areas, Calcutta and Kingston. Don’t believe me? Visit, say, Ilford, Essex and doubt no more…

The “refugees welcome” dimwits and “multikultis” will say that all (“all”?!) that is required is for local councils, or central government, or Uncle Tom Cobbley, to house anyone requiring housing. Just like that. Manna from Heaven. Pie in the sky. If only life were that simple!

A sad story, and a tale of unnecessary suffering.

Mike Stuchbery’s case against Tommy Robinson

If anyone is following the legal proceedings of self-styled “historian”, “journalist” and antifa rear-echelon cheerleader Mike Stuchbery against Tommy Robinson, my blog post (updated every few days) can be found here:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/11/27/mike-stuchbery-and-tommy-robinson-legal-dispute/

So far, Stuchbery and his UK supporters have raised £11,594 from mug donors, but it is a mystery what has happened to that money. His one-man-band Pakistani solicitor (there may be a second solicitor involved) sent a “Letter before Action” to “Tommy Robinson” (sub nom Stephen Yaxley-Lennon) in November 2019. Since then, nothing. I have blogged (see above) repeatedly that I do not think that any action will be launched, or will be successful if launched.

Even when I was at school in Sydney (1967-69), a Holden was a rara avis. I knew not one person who owned one. My family and their friends and wider circle owned Fords, VWs, Mercedes, even one Rolls-Royce, but no Holdens. Occasionally one would be seen on the road, but not often.

Sabisky

“…should be nowhere near government“…says a thick black barrister (practised for about 3 years in criminal law before becoming an MP at age 28, having also been in the USA for a year or so). Basically a black “racist” who believes in corporal punishment, supports the Jewish lobby (which is why he is often on TV and elsewhere in the msm), and thinks that white European people are the source of most of the evil in this world.

Thick? Yes. Don’t assume that a law degree, Bar qualification or whatever signifies high intellect or knowledge these days. Lammy even thought that reference to the colour of the smoke of the Sistine Chapel at a Papal conclave was “a silly racist joke”!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Lammy#Comments_attracting_criticism

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papal_conclave#Smoke_colors

Lammy is also a liar, having said (to give but one example) that his mother raised him in conditions of poverty alleviated by Tax Credits, an easily-rebutted claim in view of the fact that tax credits of that sort were only introduced when Lammy was aged 31 (though there were other low-income credits before that, so in fairness it may just be that Lammy was not lying but just talking confused rubbish. He often does).

Lammy also claimed recently (on Twitter) that “[his] ancestors died fighting this shit”, by which he apparently meant white European civilization. What “ancestors”? What “shit”? If his ancestors died fighting anything, it was in African tribal wars, or maybe in riots on British streets (though that seems unlikely). Hard to know where else the ancestors of this African-race Guyanese might have “died fighting”. Perhaps Lammy will enlighten us.

Anyway, the good news is that Lammy, who actually managed to get promotion to junior minister under Blair/Brown (tokenism?), will probably never be “anywhere near government” himself now. By the time that Labour wins another general election, he will be at least 50 and quite possibly 150!

Sabisky resigns

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-51538493

The scalded reaction of the msm, many System politicians and the Twittersphere indicates to me that Sabisky was at least on the right track overall, even if not in every detail.

This was almost literally “15 minutes of fame”…

Baddiel and “holocaust” “denial”

I see that the Jew TV face, David Baddiel, has done a show about so-called “holocaust” “denial”, i.e. about the modern-day heroes and heroines who examine this whole narrative sometimes termed “The Hoax of the Twentieth Century”, people who are treated as heretics and, in a few countries, actually prosecuted as modern heretics.

It is telling that Baddiel did not include these people (from a newspaper report, seems that maybe there was only one person) on his previous series, Heretics. That is because those people, including the nasty comedienne, Jo Brand, are not heretics, just nasty squalid people who, like Baddiel, get paid large amounts for being “edgy” in a fake way. Not real “heretics” by any means.

So there had to be a special show to trash a view of modern history that is claiming more adherents every day. I shall not be watching Baddiel’s show. I could almost predict its content, minute by minute, anyway. A waste of time.

Katie Hopkins

Katie Hopkins has tweeted this:

It may well be that people adherent to Islam and/or Labour want to silence Katie Hopkins, but she is deluding herself if she cannot see that Jewish interests are behind the attacks on her. Sadly, she seems intent on trying to curry favour with the Jewish lobby, which will not work (even if she is part-Jew herself). They hate her. Still, that seems to be the path she has chosen…

The Master Race

I saw this tweet by ignorant rent-a-mouth James O’Brien:

The term “Master Race” is or can be misleading. It tends to conjure a picture of a latter-day Nietzschean “blond beast”, complete with equally Nietzschean whip, lashing the “inferior breeds” into submission and obedience.

In reality, what is or should be meant is that History or (to put it another way) the “evolution of consciousness” through Time, requires at any given moment an advanced element, which (though that advanced element may or may not have the keys to world power) “leads” that evolution simply by being the most advanced in terms of evolution.

There are also backward or laggard elements. We are talking about races, nations, groups, not necessarily about individuals within any of those races, nations or groups.

The leading racial/national/group element will tend to have more power than the rest, but that is by no means always so.

Diary Blog, 15 February 2020

An early start…

 

Boris-idiot

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

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

HS2

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

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/hs2-china-build-railway-latest-boris-johnson-a9337061.html

Ancient woodlands felled:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-51475549/hs2-cubbington-wood-group-to-continue-their-protest

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

Ireland

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Labour leadership

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

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-51505547

Storm comment

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

Wind power

Interesting tweet about wind power:

Adolf Hitler said that “the future of electricity generation lies in the winds and the waves” [see Hitler’s Table Talk]. All we have to do now is to reduce the aesthetic impact of wind farms and the impact they have on bird life.

Et vous?

Saw this.

I think that I score four points out of twenty. Five points if my return to the UK from Australia in 1969, aged 13, and aboard the old Oriana, is not labelled a “cruise”. I suppose not, though it had most of the same characteristics, so make that five points out of twenty.

Mike Stuchbery

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

Stuchbery

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

I have blogged a couple of times about Stuchbery:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The midnight hour approaches…

Diary Blog, 2 February 2020

Labour leadership contest

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Marr

Just watching The Andrew Marr Show. Impressions:

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

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

HS2

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

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

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

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

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

Sinn Fein

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

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

…and here’s one specially for John McDonnell!

The Jews I met at an oasis

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

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

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

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

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

275681-Siwa_Oasis_Egypt275695-The_desert oasis of Siwa

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A quiet end to the day
