I agree, for once, with Janet Street-Porter. The whole thing has been overdone. Instead of a quiet, dignified series of events, a mass circus in which good taste and real respect has been —partly at least— left behind.

At last the Russian high command is starting to think truly tactically, meaning in this case obliquely.

It will be recalled that the Iraqi Army flooded large areas at one time, in the 1980s and later, both when fighting Iran and when fighting the “Allied forces” (USA, mainly).

I made that point a few days ago on the blog, citing the dictum of Clausewitz about how the ratio “moral” or morale vis a vis the “material” is 3:1.

We tend to forget that, though the southeastern part of Ukraine is a war zone, that does not mean that all areas suffer continuous fighting. Far from it. The Ukraine is about 3x the size of the UK, and nearly 5x the size of England. The southeastern parts known as the Donbass or Don Basin (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) are, together, about half the size of England.

Pound sliding, inflation stoking, and recession likely

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-62923994

Still think that closing down the economy for almost 2 years (because a virus was supposedly killing one out of every thousand people, mostly aged and/or with serious pre-existing health problems), and while doling out “free” money to individuals and companies via “furlough” payments, grants, “loans” etc, was a good policy? Think again.

A delusionary time, but what happens once the funeral of the late Queen has been held?

The death of the late Queen, and the consequent ritual arrangements and spectacles, is occupying the msm in the UK to an almost (?) unprecedented extent.

It may be that the Diana death hysteria of 1997, about which I have heard, and the Silver Jubilee of 1977, were similar; I cannot say, having been out of the UK when those two events occurred. In 1977, I was in Rhodesia, and in 1997 I was in Kazakhstan.

In fact, I only heard of the Diana incident 2-3 days after it happened, when I attended a regular Monday morning meeting at my office in Almaty, the then capital.

The British Embassy opened a book of condolence, and I was told by one of my Embassy contacts that, out of all the ~70 British residents (in the city) of which the Embassy was aware, I was the only one who had not signed (though not because I was hostile to Diana, but because of simple lack of interest).

My non-signing may have also been noted because, about 10 months previously, I had attended by invitation a royal reception at the Ambassador’s official Residence, where I had met and briefly chatted to Prince Charles, as he then was. Also, because I was at the Embassy quite often, at least a couple of times per week.

I have blogged in the past about how, on my return to London a few weeks later, friends told me about the collective psychosis (?) that had descended (on London at least), with pubs full of blubbing drinkers etc.

I am now thinking ahead to the day, or perhaps two or three days after the funeral of the late Queen (next Monday, 19 September 2022). What then?

We as a nation (insofar as Britain still is a nation) face huge economic problems, as well as ingrained social problems. The cloud of illusion all too obvious this week on TV, in the Press etc will blow away, and the country may come down to Earth with a very hard jolt.

The sentiment around the enormous queues going to see the late Queen’s coffin etc is somewhat illusory. The hundreds of thousands of people shuffling toward Westminster, or lining the Mall, are still only about 1% of the whole UK population. The vast majority, almost all in fact, seem to be English/British, i.e. white, and most (that I have seen in photos, on TV etc), are middle-aged or elderly.

This will all look very different in six months’ time.

I still think that the most telling thing about Greta Thunberg is how the decadent mainstream media, politicians etc at least pretend to take this uneducated and afflicted girl (now 19) as some kind of sage, when actually she has nothing to offer. It says something about the world we are in today.

“Jack” Monroe, the “Bootstrap Cook”; some thoughts about “poverty”

I thought that it was worth reposting those tweets, which refer to the Twitter storm around “Jack” Monroe, aka “Bootstrap Cook” (mentioned in yesterday’s blog).

I have no particular animus against “Bootstrap Cook”, and I should imagine that many find her recipes and other advice very useful [see https://cookingonabootstrap.com/category/recipes-food/], but it is clear that she herself is not (now) in what most people would regard as poverty.

As to my own experiences of “poverty”, I have had some pretty low moments from time to time over the years, for example after I returned to the UK in Spring 1998, after a few months living in Egypt [https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/03/07/when-i-was-not-arrested-in-egypt/].

Was I myself “in poverty” when I returned to London? It certainly seemed so!

Think living in a single room in a flat (provided by a friend of a friend— eventually, and very belatedly, months later, paid for by Housing Benefit). Think living largely off tiny State benefit for 3-4 months (monies also delayed for weeks). Think having to be a little bit “creative” in finding ways to travel around London, and equally “creative” in finding out how to increase supply of food and reading material (mainly books).

Yet only a few years before, I had quite often been paid, as Counsel, £1,000 or more for often quite brief (less than half a day) appearances in the High Court or elsewhere.

Later, living in the former Soviet Union in 1996-97, my home was a kind of large penthouse with a very wide wraparound balcony, I had a former MVD car and driver to ferry me to my office etc, a Rolex Seadweller on my wrist, and I rarely carried less than USD $5,000 on my person.

Incidentally, barristers reading this might sneer at the modesty of those High Court fees (perhaps a tenth or a twentieth of the fees some now get and even back then received), but this was 1993-95, nearly 30 years ago, and I was only just out of pupillage (on-the-job training). Anyway, it seemed good at the time to me.

What those born into wealth usually fail to know, having never experienced it, is how quickly a comfortable lifestyle can disappear, without personal capital or family money as a safety net.

When I was living on pennies —and my wits— in the London of March-June 1998, I often walked past Julie’s restaurant in Notting Hill, a restaurant patronized by film stars and other “celebrities”, and a place which I had previously visited several times, only 2-3 years before, and arriving in a large white Mercedes (a girlfriend’s car).

Maybe 3 years later, in 1998, I would have been unable to buy a coffee in the same restaurant, and I wondered whether those staring out of the windows could perceive somehow just how poor I was (maybe a subjective and resentful thought: after all, the Rolex may have gone, but I was still clad in an Austin Reed overcoat and Dents leather gloves etc).

There is no need for me to say more about that very pinched time in my life. Adolf Hitler had it worse, in the Vienna of 1909-1912. Eventually, my several months of poverty came to an end and then, less than a year after I had returned penniless to London, I was spending time living in a villa in the Caribbean, with a private beach (in effect), though those sometimes pleasant months sadly did not become sybaritic years (though I did spend much of 1999 in and around the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico— several Caribbean islands, and the Gulf Coast of Florida).

I later had more ups and downs, but that is enough for today.

I do not know a great deal in detail about “Jack” Monroe, the Bootstrap Cook, but I would guess that she knows a lot about “precarious” life in the Britain of today. Occasional poverty, occasional plenty, but not much security either way.

Many many people in Britain in 2022 are part of that “precariat”. This has political implications. Labour was the party of the industrial “proletariat”, mainly, a class which is now all but non-existent. “Bootstrap Cook”, leaving aside her personal predilections, is in that sense far more typical of the masses than would be the Soviet-style miner, rail worker, or other member of the organized labour force, insofar as such people still exist in the UK.

If there were a credible social-national movement in the UK, the “Bootstrap Cook” would probably not support it, but the “precariat” in general would, especially as inflation, low pay, and low State benefits all start to bite.

More tweets seen

Well, £600 is not a fortune for a watch these days (any of my one-time Rolex Seadwellers would be £10,000-£15,000 in 2022), but I take her point.

…on the other hand, Bootstrap Cook is, after all, from Essex, the home of “bling”…

Meanwhile, though the @norfolkchatter1 Twitter account has disappeared, the storm around the Bootstrap Cook has, if anything, intensified, with many Twit-people (including the terminally “woke”) supporting her, but also with many others either criticizing her or demanding to know exactly how much capital or income she really has at her disposal, and asking whether she is exploiting people who donate to her when they really cannot afford to do so.

Legitimate questions, arguably, though it is almost axiomatic that the poor (however defined) do donate more generally than the wealthy or not poor (however defined), relative to income. Also, people are assumed to be compos mentis; if they want to donate to someone, that is their choice. There are many worthwhile-seeming appeals around: see, e.g. https://www.gofundme.com/f/judith-thorpe-funeral-children-fund; and https://www.gofundme.com/f/please-if-you-can-help-to-keep-our-boy-safe.

[Incidentally, I do not know anyone involved in either of the two GoFundMe appeals above; I just happened to see them].

“Covid” “panicdemic”

Looks like reality has started, finally, to break through…

Sometimes I wonder what, WHAT, would make the mass of British people wake up to the “panicdemic”, the nonsense measures such as facemask-wearing that were part of the scam, or to the “support Ukraine” propaganda or, as in that tweet, the very real dangers of the “Covid” “vaccines”, but I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that nothing, nothing at all, will awaken the masses. A “victory” by a football team, or whatever absolute shite is on “reality” (unreality) TV that week, and the real and important issues are forgotten again.

Maybe after the nuclear war with Russia that so many have been brainwashed into (as they imagine) wanting to see, the survivors will see their reality more clearly.

Diary Blog, 7 August 2022, with thoughts about drought and water supply

Morning music

On this day a year ago

Drought, and water supply

Where is the strategic direction from government? It is hard to think of a more basic function of government in the modern era than the supply of plentiful and clean water. Of all necessities, water supply is the most basic.

Measures that should be taken in the UK (southern England, really) include water-retention projects in upland areas, new dams and reservoirs, and construction of desalination plants for emergency use (Israel has some of the best technology for that; worth looking at).

Other measures would include those to minimize leaks. London may be losing a quarter of the water available and piped by reason of leaks.

Also, the UK population has increased by many millions in the past half-century. Stop importing unwanted people.

Cape Town nearly ran out of water 2015-2018, partly by reason of low rainfall, but also because (quelle surprise) African government has proven incapable of planning ahead: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Town_water_crisis.

Cape Town was saved partly by severe restrictions on use, but mainly because the rains started to arrive again from 2018. Los Angeles was in difficulties too over the past decade, but again was saved mainly by renewed rainfall.

In principle, I think that water, at least for domestic users, should be free or very inexpensive, but the reality is that there is a cost attached to the storage and supply of water (and also to the disposal of waste water). There is a debate to be had as to how to manage those costs.

In Ireland, until fairly recently, water was supplied free of charge to domestic users, and the cost covered out of taxation, mainly rates (taxation) on domestic and commercial property: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_supply_and_sanitation_in_the_Republic_of_Ireland#Tariffs.

Factors: abundant surface water, and a relatively small population, which until recent decades was mostly poor. Incidentally, it was not so long ago that most of the Irish population did not pay income tax.

I oppose meters for water, and I oppose the profiteering by the present privatized water companies in the UK. There should be a national water authority and, if water is to be charged for at all, a set amount —the same amount— paid for water (either per person or per household) over a determined period.

Water pressure can be reduced to save water in times of drought, though that is easier in some countries than in others. I recall a friend in New Jersey telling me in about 1991 that he had seen a special episode of This Old House [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Old_House] from London, which included the information that water pressure was 18 pounds per square inch.

My friend said that “to us, that’s a trickle!“. I think that water pressure in the NY/NJ region is nearer to 80 pounds per square inch, so 4x higher than in London, thinking back to that conversation.

Incidentally, water pressure in the UK is now expressed in “bars”, a metric measurement: see https://www.plumbnation.co.uk/blog/the-complete-guide-to-water-pressure/.

Large-scale users of water are commercial enterprises, including farms. These may have to be squeezed further on cost.

This is the sort of thing, or one type of thing, that happens when you mix up capitalist enterprise (economic zone or sphere) with the zone or sphere of social rights, politics etc. In the Threefold Social Order proposed by Rudolf Steiner, those zones or spheres (and the spiritual/cultural/etc zone or sphere) should not be confused. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_threefolding.

Bulb Energy was originally a mixture of economic enterprise and social do-gooding to do with “reducing emissions” and similar nonsense.

Other examples of “social entrepreneurship” have abounded in the Britain of the past 20 years. A swamp of fraud, chicanery and chaotic mismanagement. One of the worst types of the phenomenon has been the “social entrepreneur” company that presents itself as quasi-charitable but makes millions for its major shareholders out of public funds.

The maladministration and incompetence of Iain Dunce Duncan Smith at the DWP from 2010-2015 allowed dozens if not hundreds of such organizations to flourish. There were and maybe still are many examples, funded by not only the DWP but also other parts of government. I am not even sure that “Kids’ Company” was the worst: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kids_Company.

 [Camila Batmanghelidjh, founder and Chief Executive of Kids’ Company]

Another one, the name of which escapes me for the moment, made millions for its controllers out of DWP funds; one of those ridiculous outsourcing companies finding “make-work” non-jobs for the unemployed and disabled.

The fat young woman who owned it with her husband (fortunately for them, their names also escape me right now) was on BBC Daily Politics and other TV shows between 2010-2015, talking about how good it all was. Only Andrew Neil was sharp enough to (obliquely) question the amount said woman was making (out of the taxpayers). She and her husband bought a large country house in Derbyshire before that particular house of cards collapsed. They made millions upon millions, were never prosecuted for what I consider an outright fraud, not to mention exploitation of desperate people, and still live in luxury today, I believe.

Is this the moment in history when the West actually goes mad?

Brings to my mind the day when I met the Metropolitan of Kiev, the second-ranking bishop of the Russian Orthodox Church. That was in the early 1980s, in London. A diminutive person with a beard seemingly almost as long as his body. He gave me a bottle of export Moskovskaya vodka (now sadly all-but-unobtainable in the UK, and I think not even manufactured in its original version).

That was also the first time I saw kefir. The Metropolitan was drinking it at breakfast in his small hotel, the De Vere, a place in Kensington High Street, and used quite often by the not-far-away Soviet Embassy.

I heard some ridiculous little bastard, a “Conservative” MP, on the pathetic BBC Radio 4 PM show yesterday, bleating about “smugglers”. We should be deterring the migrant-invaders first. As to “people-smugglers”, there should be ordered a covert operation to kill them.

From the horse’s mouth: the effects of the half-****** “Brexit” carried out by part-Jew chancer and liar “Boris”— an increase in non-European, non-white, immigration.

Of course, it is all too easy to eulogize the past, but a basically white Northern European society can progress; in our age, the black/brown societies cannot, which is why the forces of Evil support and promote “multiculturalism”, because it results in a never-ending cycle, the Eternal Recurrence, as Nietzsche put it.

In the 1970s, whatever problems Britain had could be solved, in principle. Now, with a far larger population generally (70 million instead of about 56 million) and huge non-white populations as part of that, I am not optimistic that problems can be solved. The direction of travel is downward.

Ukraine

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/10/ukraine-casualty-rate-russia-war-tipping-point

The Russian forces in Ukraine east of the Dnieper river are doing what I expected, though far more slowly than I expected. They are squeezing and trying to encircle the large Ukrainian forces in and around the Donbass (southeastern Ukraine). This is the main industrial area of the country and is already, effectively and mostly, in Russian hands, with pockets of resistance in places.

I had expected Russian forces to advance north and south from the areas of Kharkov and the Sea of Azov coast respectively, then forming a line through Zaporozhye and Dnipro, and up to/down from Kharkov, thus cutting off all Ukrainian forces east of that line.

The Russians have not done what I expected, perhaps because of supply problems, perhaps also because of the apparently successful Ukrainian counter-attacks in the Kharkov area. The Russians may have redeployed forces formerly in the Kharkov area further south, around Izyum and Lisichansk.

The present focus seems to be on the town of Severodonetsk.

Instead, there seems to be an attempt at a more limited encirclement, involving about a third of the area mentioned above.

The Guardian is reporting that Ukrainian casualties, both killed and wounded, may top 1,000 per day. Even the lower estimate of 600 per day would not be sustainable for long. The Russian attrition rate is believed to be far less now, partly because the Russian forces have a longer-range capacity:

“...with an artillery overmatch of 10 or 15 to one, according to the Ukrainians, it may well be that the invaders’ casualty rate is far lower at the moment, because they are able to deal death from a greater distance to defenders who cannot see them.” [Guardian]

Ammunition is certainly running short on the Ukrainian side, again by their own admission. Vadym Skibitsky, the deputy head of Ukraine’s military intelligence, has said Ukraine is using 5,000 to 6,000 artillery rounds a day, and has “almost used up” its stockpile of Soviet 152mm standard shells. It is now relying on Nato-standard 155mm howitzers; it is unclear how many of these it has.” [Guardian]

Western support is still in place, as shown by the UK announcement to supply a handful of – perhaps three – multiple rocket launchers this week, even if Kyiv said almost immediately it wanted many times more. But it is Russia’s forces that have found a way to advance in the Donbas, raising the question of whether the three-month war is at another turning point.” [Guardian]

If Russian forces can succeed even in this more limited encirclement, they will capture huge numbers of prisoners (usable as bargaining chips), and territory, but also will more easily be able to overrun much of the territory of Ukraine east of the Dnieper and south of Kiev and Kharkov.

If the Russian forces succeed in their present operation, then I would expect them to attempt something akin to the larger encirclement of territory suggested at the top of this blog post. There may be relatively little opposition by that time. Also, the open and flat rural landscape will play to Russia’s strengths.

At that point (assuming that Zaporozhye, Dnipro, and perhaps Kharkov are all taken or bypassed), a very large assault on Kiev might be prepared.

I am assuming that the Ukrainian side is talking about their shortages of arms and ammunition in the hope that the UK and US (etc) will provide more and better. Maybe they will, maybe not.

That might be the case were Kiev seriously threatened. NWO/ZOG seems to want to provoke further conflict, so who knows?

How can a more advanced society be created with such as those? In fact, how can even a reasonably-decent society, such as ours still (just-about) is, even be maintained? It cannot.

Desperate fighting, akin to the WW2 battle for Stalingrad, though on a far smaller scale.

So constructed ~1972. Ironic that the Soviet Union finally became at least liveable only a decade or so before its collapse.

The Jew Zelensky and his whole cabal know that their main chance is to lure the NATO allies deeper and deeper into this war, until —in effect— NATO forces are fighting Russian forces. Unfortunately, the largely Jewish-controlled or strongly influenced msm in the UK, USA and elsewhere are pushing Zelensky’s line, and his demand for more and heavier weaponry, and for more ammunition, rockets etc. If acceded to, that could lead to a nuclear war in Europe, and indeed across the USA, as well as across Russia.

Stephen Fry. Again. Talking about the deficiencies of what is left of our white English/British society.

The report nowhere mentions Fry’s half-Jewish origins: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Fry#Early_life.

I have never met Fry, but I knew someone who met him at a wedding in the 1980s, and my friend (a Labour Party activist himself, in fact) was quite surprised and almost shocked by what he said were Fry’s “incredibly Left-wing” views.

Incidentally, an (American) reader comments on that report that:

HappyForLife, SouthernCity, United States, moments ago:

After reading all of the American bashing I’ll tell you what I think of the UK… Most of the wealth is held by a few with the VAST majority of you living far below a standard of living you SHOULD enjoy… You freely bash Americans every chance you get as if it makes you feel better somehow… yet despite these frustrations you are my cousin and I will not betray you.“”

Like many Americans, that one fails to see that, while it is true that there is vast disparity of wealth in the UK, the disparity is actually less so here than in the USA. As for the “standard of living” enjoyed by Americans, in many cases it is far below that of many Brits in the UK.

I myself have met multimillionaires in the US, as well as ordinarily-wealthy people, but I have in the past also met many poor people there. The median income may be higher, but when you factor in the cost of paying for medical services, tertiary education etc, the situation is not so clear-cut. Not to mention the fact that most working Americans get almost no paid holiday time

Alison Chabloz herself, she failed last Thursday to get bail pending her appeal against her most recent magistrates’ court conviction for lampooning Jewish behaviour, having been sentenced to 22 weeks (11 weeks actually in prison) on 14 April 2022, and so will remain in Bronzefield Prison (near Heathrow Airport) until 29 June 2022, unless released early on electronic tag (which seems unlikely, at present).

Should anyone wish to send Alison post, books, or small amounts of money through the approved channels:

https://www.gov.uk/send-prisoner-money.

You will need Alison’s prisoner number (see below) and her date of birth (4 April 1964).

The postal address, for sending her cards, letters etc, is:

Alison Chabloz A6478EK,

HMP Bronzefield,

Woodthorpe Rd,

Ashford TW15 3JZ,

UK.

Please note that any books sent have to be softback, new, and preferably sent via online vendors (but not Amazon; Bronzefield Prison does not now accept Amazon deliveries).

Wales? Nine children lining up, and only three of them white Europeans. The Great Replacement…

This is happening all over England, especially in the south of the country. 100 houses here, 200 there. Etc. Few have decent-size private gardens, and few of the new housing tracts have any, or any adequate, public parks or gardens.

Surprise, surprise! You vote for a part-Jew public comedian and clown to be, or pose as, Prime Minister, and…guess what you get?

You still see the odd crank here and there, wearing a facemask muzzle; a few such even in the open air. Complete idiots, unable to think for themselves, and locked into the false narrative they were fed for 2 years.

New Zealand

Chris, a builder, his partner Harmony and their four daughters recently left Wellington to start a new life in the Australian city of Brisbane. Despite owning their home and earning reasonable salaries, they were still struggling.

We have four kids, so it was expensive. We’d notice Australians saying you know the cost of living is going up – but that was the cost five years ago in New Zealand,” says Chris.

Leaving New Zealand and the rest of her family was a difficult decision for Harmony. But she says the move was necessary for the children.

“You can’t make a living in New Zealand. There is no living. You just go backwards. You don’t get a choice if you want to live, you have to move, or New Zealand has to change. I want a future for my children and there is none in New Zealand,” she says. [BBC News]

Well, what a surprise.

Mass immigration of blacks and browns, a huge amount of “woke” nonsense, a ban on almost all tourism and business travel (etc) for about 2 years, as well as the dictatorial “Covid” lockdowns/shutdowns, social distancing” and facemask nonsense decreed by New Zealand’s pathetic NWO/ZOG Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, and (what a shock— not) the economy is on life support (even more than those of Australia, the UK and elsewhere).

What, actually, do you have to do in the Britain of 2022 to get a stiff or even halfway appropriate sentence? It often seems to me that, unless you lampoon or criticize Jewish behaviour, or murder someone, or rob a bank (thus violating the Holy Money), you are unlikely to be imprisoned these days. Ask Alison Chabloz.

The Daily Mirror report above is now the norm, not some kind of eccentric exception. Serious crimes involving violence, even brutality, almost unpunished.

It is ironic that those of us often accused of wanting to institute dictatorship are in the forefront of the battle for free speech, freedom of expression, reasonable civil rights.

It is the pseudo-liberal supporters of the System, such as the Jew-Zionist element, the supposed supporters of (System) “democracy”, mainstream politicians etc (including most TV “celebrities” and talking heads, most “journalists” and other scribblers, most “human rights”-squawking barristers) who are on the other side, wanting strict “lockdowns”, shutdowns, forced vaccination, control of social media, and prosecution for anything “anti-Semitic” and/or “racist” etc.

Rory Stewart

Meanwhile, winning this week’s prize for stating the very obvious— Rory Stewart:

Rory Stewart says, though slightly more diplomatically, that Boris-idiot is a narcissistic waste of space, unfit for office. True, and many of us were tweeting and blogging the same, years ago. Still, “those who live in glass houses should not throw stones“…

Ukraine

“Ukraine’s armed forces and regional officials say Russia is launching attacks on all fronts in eastern Ukraine in what seems to be new offensive.” [The Guardian].

I think that the Russian forces are now doing what I thought they were trying to do about a month ago, i.e. drawing a line from the coastal regions of the Sea of Azov and Black Sea up the eastern bank of the river Dnieper through Zaporozhye and Dnipro [former Dnepropetrovsk], then towards Kharkov, with the aim of eliminating all Ukrainian forces to the east of that line, then occupying all territory to the east of that line.

Once the above has been accomplished, the strategy may well be to strike north from Dnipro and west from the Kharkov area (once Kharkov is either taken or isolated), thus controlling and/or occupying almost all of Ukraine east of the Dnieper and south of Kiev itself.

Ha ha! I could not ignore that prize example of socio-political idiocy. Seems that there are still “useful idiots” around who idolize the Jew Marx. Not that everything he wrote was wrong; even Hitler said that (see Hitler’s Table Talk). However, what was, in its heyday, a serious political movement, meaning Marxism, or Marxism-Leninism, has become (gradually, since the 1950s) a farrago of nonsense play-politics, on the periphery of both events and political thought.

Incidentally, the two specimens above are students at Exeter University: see https://twitter.com/Franhendersonx.

In the famous words of Marx himself: “…first time as tragedy, second time as farce“…

Thus actor-turned-activist Laurence Fox displays ignorance of history, ethnology, and politics, all in two short tweets. As I have written previously, you can dump Fox in the same bin as Toby Young, James Delingpole, Breitbart, GB News, the fake “Free Speech Union”, UKIP/Brexit Party/Reform Party, Nigel Farage, “Tommy Robinson”, and Katie Hopkins (etc):

Grifting wastes of space, as well as controlled opposition.

Not that all that they say is wrong…see below:

One has to respect the fortitude of those Ukrainian defenders at the Azovstal plant, but they were just “useful idiots” for Zelensky’s Jew-Zionist Kiev regime.

Thousands have now surrendered. I trust that they will be treated properly and decently by their Russian captors. I think that they will be.

The truth will out, as they say…

I repost that as signalling my opposition to censorship on Twitter, but the “Dame Abi Roberts” person was very rude about me once or twice on Twitter, and I think supported the persecution of me by the Jew element, so fuck him (I think it was a “he”, in fact)…

As to the “Jack Monroe” person, I think that some of her activity, trying to advise impoverished people about cooking very cheap food, is all to the good, but her apparent support for the State’s “panicdemic” measures is or was, in my opinion, negative. She was hardly alone, though.

All or almost all those prominent in the msm or on social media supported the lockdown/shutdown(s), the supposed “vaccine” etc. Many have now switched (most of) their virtue-signalling to “Ukraine” flag-waving.

I think that I discern a metaphor there somewhere…

Certainly arguable. I myself might suggest 1989. That was the last significant year of the 33-year historical cycle. Thirty-three years ago…

The truth is that the course of history is just too complex to narrow down a trend to a single year.

All members of SAGE should (in a better world, that is) be arrested and interrogated. Fortunately for the conspirators, I have not the power.

Not so happy about the misuse of the word “fascist“, but I’ll let that pass; the UK’s whole mentality is now so screwed that one has to look at the big picture.

Few have been as critical, over years, as I have of “Boris”-idiot and his pack of, mostly, non-Brits in Cabinet, but it is idle to want the government of the country transferred to Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer and his equally-stupid pack, including Angela Rayner, an uneducated woman who managed to get, in the colourful American phrase, “knocked up” at the age of 16: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Rayner.

History? What history?

I happened this morning to see an episode of the quiz show The Chase, I think from several years ago. One contestant was a university student reading History (somewhere in Yorkshire; Leeds I think).

Said student said that his own main interest was 20th century history. He was asked in which country was The Long March, and replied “UK“! Of course it was not in the UK, but in China.

Another question, scarcely taxing, one would have thought, even for those not spending three years reading History at a university: “in which city was Sir Francis Drake playing bowls when the Spanish Armada was sighted?” He replied (from a choice of three cities) “Portsmouth“! Time was when every schoolboy would have known that Drake was on The Hoe at Plymouth at the material time.

The educational system in the UK must be rock-bottom now. Attendees spend something like 13 years in full-time primary and secondary education, and most come out of that knowing “FA”…

The same seems true of most university students.

I see, incidentally, that it is now admitted that the proportion of students awarded so-called Firsts at university has doubled in the past few years! In the title of an old British comedy show “Never Mind the Quality, Feel the Width“…

Quite. I was recently informed that my brother and sister-in-law, residents of Sydney, Australia, had come down, briefly, with the dreaded Covid. Symptoms? Same as with (any other) heavy cold. No need for medicines, let alone actual medical treatment. This however in a city which has been subject to some of the harshest lockdowns, facemask nonsense, “vaccination” programmes etc.

Alison Chabloz

Reports from usually-reliable sources say that imprisoned satirist and singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, remains in good spirits, and is very grateful to those who have sent money to her prison account. It makes a real difference to her in terms of her daily life “inside”.

Should others wish to support her struggle in that way, see https://www.gov.uk/send-prisoner-money.

You will need Alison’s prisoner number (see below) and her date of birth (4 April 1964).

The postal address, for sending her cards, letters etc, is:

Alison is today sitting in prison for the 29th day since her sentencing hearing on 14 April 2022. Her time in prison will be 77 days altogether; she is therefore almost halfway through the custodial part pf her sentence.

The tweet below made me laugh.

What can one say? The tiny “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] cabal (actually, in active terms, just one Jewish crank) thinks that the above picture is so offensive that only police action and CPS prosecution will do by way of remedy.

So what do the “CAA” do? Repost it themselves on Twitter!

You couldn’t make it up.

It really is about time that some police forces (Gloucestershire Police, for one) woke up to these troublemakers, and particularly to the main troublemaker. Some of my own experiences with the aforesaid crank(s) and nuisance(s):

and

There are over 250,000 Jews in the UK. Only a few dozen belong to, or support, the “CAA”. Certainly no more than a hundred or so. Those few, however, seem to have contacts in the main System political parties, the Press, and in some police forces.

The “CAA” is engaged in what amounts to abuse of the criminal justice system, trying to cajole and/or pressure police and CPS to prosecute people of whom the “CAA” disapproves.
