A fair point, I suppose. A few people (of prominence) such as Hitchens have done what they can to wake people up to the weaponization of “the virus” for the promotion of an ulterior agenda (the “Great Reset”), but the big battalions of the Government, Opposition (so-called) and msm were all pro-lockdown, pro-shutdown, pro-facemask nonsense etc.

For myself, I should have preferred it had those of prominence in the msm etc, such as Hitchens, refused to be vaccinated (as I have). Having said that, every individual must make his own choice. To each, his own. Jedem bei seinem…

The UK msm is riddled with traitors of all sorts: former IRA supporters, supporters of Israel and Jewish terrorism, “refugees welcome” dimwits, “antifascist” idiots, anti-white European race and culture oppositionists etc.

In relation to the Greenslade matter, he was not alone in being a Fleet Street partisan for the terrorists in the 1970s.

There was a well-known part-Irish, part-Belgian, part-Jewish journalist (whose name presently escapes me), now long-deceased, who was also a columnist in London and who wrote about 30 years ago how appalled he was when, in the early 1970s, he realized how many mainstream/Fleet Street journalists reporting on the situation in Northern Ireland were strongly pro-Republican and often actually pro-IRA (Provisional IRA). This at a time when bombs were going off in London and across the UK as well as “over the water” in Northern Ireland itself.

The public were unaware how many employees of their daily “news” papers were pro-IRA.

The same newspapers are still pumping out disguised propaganda, though these days it is more often that they are supporting migration invasion, “black lives matter” nonsense etc.

National Lottery

What would you do if you won the lottery?” A “frequently-asked question”, I suppose. Most people do not stray far from the “new house, new car, expensive holiday” banalities. I think that I might offer a different answer, should that benevolent lightning strike me. I should probably employ an expensive firm of solicitors and, if necessary, Counsel, to use available legal strategems such as Norwich Pharmacal orders against a number of pseudonymous Twitter trolls. Let’s find out who they really are, and where they are, so that legal action can be taken against them. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwich_Pharmacal_order.

Diary Blog, 25 February 2021

Was just watching a quite interesting film, After the Dark: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/After_the_Dark

Watching that film brought to mind my blogging on the theme of the re-creation or rebuilding of an advanced white Northern European (or post-Aryan) society if terrible events should strike down our present world. See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/.

We often spend time doing things such as trying to gain ordinary political traction, or defending ourselves against the onslaught of nonsense (malicious complaints to social media organizations, police etc) from the Jew-Zionist element and their “antifa” idiot-serfs, or commenting on the events of the day.

All of the above are of course necessary, but we should never forget that ou primary focus should be the creation of a new and better society, together with the race and culture which should and must underpin that new society.

Society consists of people, and the most important thing of all is the production of sufficient numbers of white Northern European children, properly brought up and educated.

We, as white Northern Europeans, are facing existential peril. Call it “the Great Replacement” or simply “White Genocide”. Whatever. For example, in the world as a whole, only a few percent of people in this world are actually ethnically European, even broadly.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_people (n.b.the most populous regions, i.e. those of Asia, especially China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, which four states comprise nearly half the world population, are not covered in that article).

More directly, our own European societies have faced, in the past half century or so, unprecedented migration invasion. Since the fall of the socialist world (i.e. since 1989) and particularly since the disruptions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the fall of Gaddafi in Libya, a gigantic wave of migration-invasion has hit Europe.

We have seen how the evil cabals of the international conspiracy have helped that invasion, and funnelled the invaders from Africa and Asia to Europe, even to the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia etc; even to Iceland!

We have our backs to the wall, but all is not lost. The world may soon face destruction on a scale that may dwarf even the terrible events of the Second World War. If (when) that happens, we as white Northern European social nationalists may be mere bystanders and/or victims, but after the corrupt old world is destroyed (in large measure) we shall have both the opportunity and the duty to create a new society out of the ruins of the old.

School exams

It seems that, for the second year in a row, schools will mark the exams of their pupils, thus throwing away any rigour or credibility in the public examination system. For God’s sake, just check the the pupils are all breathing, then chuck them all “A” grades. They will love it, their parents will love it, the schools will love it and this shite “government” will love it. Sweeties for all! Meanwhile, in the real world…

What is the phrase? Something like “a waste of oxygen“… We Europeans, especially perhaps we British, are in general and by nature more compassionate than Africans, North Africans, Orientals, Muslims generally, but that does mean that, sometimes, the unworthy benefit.

The truth of that was made manifest in the survival of decency and culture within families even in the terrible milieu of Jewish Bolshevism, and later Stalinism, in the Soviet Union of the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s,1950s, and on to the collapse of socialism around 1989. I suppose that the worst time for secrecy plus denunciation was the 1930s, especially the Yezhovshchina of 1937-1939, and then the late 1940s.

In fact, the “Conservative” government “child spies” campaign or proposal is merely the logical consequence of what has gone before (in recent years); it is a continuation of what already exists.

In and after 2010, we saw part-Jew Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, call upon curtain-twitching pleb-Cons to “report” their neighbours who were unemployed and/or disabled, and who might be sleeping late rather than hurrying and scurrying to “seek work” (often unobtainable anyway) in the (((finance-capitalist))) economy.

For years we have seen the authorities demand that neighbours, families, churches, mosques, schoolteachers, even Church of England priests (if there are any left who are not arse-faced lesbians), report or denounce their own families, and friends, acquaintainces, pupils, parishioners etc; not only for “terrorism”, by the way, but also for supporting animal welfare, for opposing mass immigration (migration-invasion) etc. The government even established “Morozovist” organizations, such as “Prevent” and “Channel”, in order to facilitate it all.

I blogged about it years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/05/30/one-mans-extremism-is-another-mans-struggle-for-liberty-and-justice/.

More recently, we have see government attempts to get people to denounce neighbours, friends, family who might have exceeded the arbitrary “Rule of Six” invented by Boris-idiot, or who might actually have invited family members to visit at Christmas.

Over the years, we have seen the users of Twitter etc delight in “reporting” “wrong thinking” and “wrong speaking” people to Twitter, or to police, or to others who might punish the dissident. Employers, academic institutions etc. As always, the Jewish element was in the forefront in “reporting” people, though others joined in, particularly the “antifa” idiot-crowd, and the allied self-describing “Left”.

Now this.

I wonder whether Jewish lobby puppet Keir Starmer will go along (yet again) with what this government is going and proposing?

The real agenda lies behind the supposed reasons for the “reporting” campaigns; to create a serf or slave society somewhere down the line.

Final thought (for today) on all that: remember what happened to Pavel Morozov. After all, if you play by Moscow Rules…

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

[Pavel Morozov, second row, at middle]

I wonder where the blacks, browns, even Orientals would be, had our white European civilization, especially that developed since about 1400 AD, never existed? Oh, no, wait…

What we are seeing is not exactly “authoritarianism” but the infantilism of, mostly, the self-describing “Left”, who just want to be told what to do by the Big Brother State. Those types are the core of the lockdown and facemask zealotry. A chance for them to see people bullied and bossed around, while retaining a figleaf of “caring sharing” fakery at the same time.

I have to admit that I did not like the look of this Brand person much, but if he is now waking up, then I warm to him (at least slightly).

White genocide. The Great Replacement. The Great Reset. Fight it or die (pretty soon)…

Just what I was blogging about recently. I shall be laughing when the UK and connected “antifascist” Twitter-twits are expelled. They have little or nothing else.

A now-deceased friend of mine, acquainted with both Mosley and his wife Diana in the 1950s, always said that Mosley’s mistake was to accentuate the “Man of Action” and military aspect of his character (genuine though that was: WW1 officer of both the Army and the Royal Flying Corps; wounded in action), while playing down his more intellectual side (which my friend thought reflected his overall character more, though in the late 1950s Mosley was, of course, over 60).

UK quarantine

Unless the Government simply props up airlines and travel companies (pointlessly), they are finished. Who on Earth will book a foreign holiday from the UK when that tourist (and family, if any) will now quite likely have to spend 10-14 days quarantined in a guarded hotel, and even have to pay for their own incarceration?! Forget it.

In fact, the country where the tourist is booked may also impose some such requirement, and at short notice…

In short, the travel and tourism sector, both domestic and overseas, is totally screwed, as are its huge number of employees.

Incidentally, the whole travel and tourism sector in the UK employs a total of 3.8 million people, about 11% of the entire UK workforce.

There are probably thousands of similar cases, never investigated.

America, “land of freedom”…

The “lockdown” zealots and facemask fanatics, who usually like to present themselves as terribly compassionate etc (and who are usually economically unaffected by the shutdown, being either fairly affluent and/or “working from home” and/or working for the State and so unlikely to be made redundant or sacked, or who are unemployed/retired and so not likely to be made homeless) seem to regard people like the lady mentioned in that tweet as collateral damage of a “necessary” policy.

I agree, as a one-time Devon resident (2004 and 2005, a few miles east of the Upper Tamar).

Exactly. Some people are so black and white-minded that they say “Covid-19 is real, not a scam, so the conspiracy theory about the Great Reset is rubbish…“, when of course it is perfectly possible for “the virus” to be both real and a serious public health problem, and also being used as a convenient way of pushing through huge socio-political change via fear propaganda, financial manipulation etc. Oh, and as for the “Great Reset” being a “conspiracy theory”, it’s no theory. Indeed, the World Economic Forum [WEF; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Economic_Forum] actually both tweeted, and published elsewhere, the view that the virus situation was a perfect opportunity to push the Great Reset. They even used the words, “Great Reset”.

System-approved journalist is somehow surprised that official photos may lie, or tell a completely or largely untrue narrative [cf. “holocaust”]…

Cineworld

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/jan/21/cineworld-faces-revolt-by-shareholders-over-pounds-208m-share-scheme

Britain’s largest cinema chain is facing a shareholder backlash over a scheme that could result in top bosses being allocated up to £208m in share awards while thousands of staff remaining furlough as all its 127 UK sites remain closed.”

“…the structure of the proposed LTIP, which would deliver a block of shares covering three years, meant executives appeared “eligible to receive virtually unlimited remuneration”.”

Cineworld staff have been on furlough since November, although there has also been a significant round of voluntary and compulsory redundancies at various managerial levels, from supervisors to cinema management.

The proposed LTIP will award the company’s top executives if Cineworld’s share price bounces back to £1.90p within three years. If this level, which is close to its pre-pandemic level of £1.97p, is reached, bosses will share £104m, with the chief executive, Mooky Greidinger, and his brother and deputy, Israel, in line for an award of £33m each.

Mooky” and “Israel“?…Wake up, people! Wake up to these parasites!

Except that the quotation marks should be round the last two words…

Speaking of “history” (as children are now indoctrinated…):

Two main reasons: the fear-propaganda put out by the Government, and in fact by most West European governments; also, the fact that most people did not suffer economically. Many were on furlough payment, others were working from home and (if they had nice houses, gardens, swimming pools etc) could treat the near-house arrest as a kind of rather spartan holiday.

All the same, the Jew Rakosi (the former a fact that Peter Hitchens somehow neglects to point out) was overthown, in 1956 (apropos of nothing, the year of my own birth) and, though Hungary remained under effective Soviet suzerainty until after 1989 (when, effectively, old-style socialism died), the country had increasingly “liberal” policies internally. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%A1ty%C3%A1s_R%C3%A1kosi; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%A1nos_K%C3%A1d%C3%A1r.

History is not usually black and white.

On Peter Hitchens’ main point, what is now happening across the Western world, but not so much in Central and Eastern Europe, or in Russia (i.e. “panicdemic” being used as a mehod of imposing a “Great Reset”) may be happening partly because the states and territories that knew Soviet rule are unwilling to submit to tyranny again. As an acquaintance of mine told me in Moscow in 1993, “Ian, that is an experiment that we do not wish to repeat.”

What happens when dissent and any socio-political dissidence is blocked and when the broadcasting arena is completely under “control” ? Look again at Budapest in 1956…

Hitchens focusses on his own situation: increasingly censored and even banned (a talk he gave on TalkRadio was removed from YouTube and, though the channel itself was reinstated, his talk was not, I think). Hitchens however, is merely one of the more mainstream people affected by such methods. Others, including me, David Icke, many others, trod the same path previously.

Yet the facemask propaganda is being stepped up. The State mouthpiece, the BBC, via the Today Programme yesterday or today, had a fawning interview with some supposed medical “expert” who said (on being prompted) that medical-grade facemasks might become mandatory in shops and on public transport! Apparently Angela Merkel, the German dictator-for-a-while, is already moving that way.

The aim of the international conspiracy seems to be to see how far it can get down the path of “atomizing” people, making public group dissent a crime, and at the same time tightening (((control))) of the Internet. Result? Complete tyranny. They hope.

One sees how the term “holocaust” “denial” has opened the door to further tyranny, i.e. people who want full scientific examination of climatic changes are now called “climate-deniers”, while those who disagree with “panicdemic” laws and governmental “rules”, however absurd, are called “Covid-deniers” (when not “Covidiots”).

What next? I wonder…

The tweeter “@ BritishAlba”, if not some kind of parody, is the kind of pseudo-“nationalist” — not even a mere “conservative nationalist”— who makes me shake my head in disbelief. In what world is it “the right thing to do” to invite maybe FIVE MILLION (more) Chinese here?! A city on the scale of a half or a third of the entire London sprawl, or about three times the size of the Glasgow metro area!

That same tweeter agonizes about the relatively few thousand illegal immigrants arriving by small boat, when even the entire illegal immigrant/asylum-seeker contingent is less than 100,000 a year. Certainly a serious problem (and one not being addressed) but 100,000 is only a FIFTIETH the size of those 5 million Chinese!

Boris-idiot and his mainly Jewish and Indian Cabinet are simply enemies; in a real sense, enemies of the people.

Again, another very silly tweeter, one “@dafyddtaylor”, who thinks that the “Great Replacement” is a “fascist conspiracy theory“! In the colloquial phrase, “should have gone to Specsavers“! Look around you, man!

People such as “@dafyddtaylor” may well be beyond salvation, politically. Just as “@BritishAlba” thinks that the misnamed Conservative Party is “the answer”, so “@dafyddtaylor” sees political salvation in the equally-misnamed Labour Party. In fact, “Daffy” lives up to his name; he even retweets that useless creature “@Femi_Sorry”! [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole].

Talking of “Femi”, whose many deluded Twitter “followers” want to see as a Labour MP, he has tweeted this:

At root, he has no profession, no job, and lives in his (affluent) parents’ house, though he had some anti-Brexit “campaigning” work since leaving university nearly a decade ago, campaigning funded mainly by the EU. He is now 30 and, like the Japanese soldiers who carried on fighting the Pacific war long after it was over, is still (in his own little mind) fighting Brexit. His ever-smaller world is Twitter. In that, he is certainly not alone. Most of the self-describing “Left” are there…and only there. They have nothing to offer the British people, nothing at all.

“Action—Reaction—Control”. The “antifa” idiots are being used, so that a Federal crackdown on all dissent, especially “neo-Nazi” (social-national) dissent, can be presented as justified.

In the UK and elsewhere, we see sometimes actions such as attacks on Jewish cemeteries. On several occasions, Jews have actually been arrested as the perpetrators. In some cases, they were mentally disordered, but it is suspected that Zionist cabals were behind some of such attacks. The aim? To make the point that “Jewish organizations need State help (and money!)” to “defend themselves”. Also, to create a perception of a “threat” from social nationalists when there is in fact no such threat.

A recent example: https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/top-pro-israel-lawyer-who-23356143

Top pro-Israel lawyer who faked vandalism attack at Scots home faces being struck off…Matthew Berlow devised a conspiracy with an accomplice to catch out another lawyer he believed was subjecting him to anti-Semitic abuse.”

Of course, lawyers, in the tabloid Press, are always either “top” or “disgraced”!

Pro-Israel Matthew Berlow devised a conspiracy with an accomplice to catch out another lawyer he believed was subjecting him to anti-Semitic abuse.”

Yet another unintended comment on the state of British “journalism” and “journalists” today.

There are few considered more anti-Israel or “antisemitic” than me, but credit where due— this is, on the face of it, a tremendous achievement.

The “virus” fall-out

The various Government measures to mitigate, not the virus but the Government’s own policies in relation to it (“lockdowns”, “tiers”, quarantining, etc) bought off real popular opposition last year. The Government took a leaf from the book of Aneurin Bevan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aneurin_Bevan], who said that he had bought off opposition from medical doctors to the establishment of the NHS by having “stuffed their mouths with gold” (i.e. allowing senior doctors (“consultants”) to take on private work as well as receiving relatively high NHS pay).

“Furlough” payments ensured that, in 2020, many received effectively the same pay as before, but for no work (“furlough” was capped at 80% of net pay to a maximum of £2,500 p.c.m., but that was close to 100% for most, when the costs of just having a job are factored in: travel, snacks, drinks, clothes etc).

Many others were able to “work from home”, which might have had disadvantages for some but many advantages for others: no travel costs; a saving of (?) 1-5 hours of travel on the day, depending on the commute; the possibility to organize the day to suit the employee; no “boss” people supervizing the employee directly, or able to see what the employee is doing during the working day.

Naturally, the higher-paid working from home would have been, and are, in a better position than the lower-paid: perhaps large detached houses, perhaps also with swimming pools, tennis courts, large gardens in which to relax etc. One could imagine some, working in between swimming, and perhaps drinking Chardonnay ordered online and delivered to the door (I seem to remember that, even nearly 20 years ago, Sainsbury’s would not only deliver my wife’s orders, but actually take the stuff into the kitchen for her).

Also, companies started to demand Government help. Even those run by tax exiles such as Richard Branson. Some help was given.

Not everyone was taken care of by Government largesse. The self-employed, thhose running the smaller and one-man companies etc. The majority of the population, though, was shut up in both senses by Government order and Government money. Even the unemployed (etc) on Universal Credit, got a £20 a week increase.

Now, however, after much to-ing and fro-ing, we find ourselves back in “lockdown”.

Once again, the furlough is extended. Once again, failing businesses are, in some cases, being propped up, smaller airports among them. For how long, though?

Today, we heard that Newquay Airport (which I myself used a few times in the past) will be given money. I do not know whether other airports I used to use, e.g. Exeter and Southampton, are in a similar position.

Let us examine what might happen. Let us say that “the virus”, whether because of natural decline, the vaccine(s), whatever, disappears some time in 2021 from the UK. Air travel will take a long long time to recover, especially if countries are to insist on quarantines and “virus-free” certification. Will UK airports, airlines, ground services etc need or demand propping-up for years? Is that even possible?

We read that the UK Government can borrow money at very low, almost zero, interest at present. Good, but for how long?

We now read that the Government wants to reduce Universal Credit by £20 a week, while chucking those currently on it £500 in cash. There may be a revolt by Conservative MPs, and a possible Government defeat in the coming days.

The argument over UC payments presages coming disputes. No matter how much can currently be borrowed by the UK Government, eventually that will become unsustainable. What then? Already, State benefits paid to the unemployed are at their lowest since 1992 and, according to other calculation, overall benefits were not this low in real terms since the 1960s, which however was a era of, effectively, full employment.

The present government cannot simply, say, raise the State Pension (“Old Age Pension”, as was) entitlement age from 66, where it will be from 2022, to he age of 67, or 68, or 70, not without a massive backlash from voters aged over 65, and they are a half of all Conservative supporters: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-politics-47909281. They are also far more likely to vote.

In other words, if the present government hits the pensioners or those looking at shortly becoming pensioners, it is toast.

The Government is looking at the unemployed and others as targets because they are less significant electorally, though at the same time, 40% of UC claimants are actually not unemployed but are in low-paid work.

Unsurprisingly, Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak is not going to introduce a windfall wealth tax. He wants to extract money from the poor or poor-ish, while not dooming his party electorally.

What about demand in the economy? Already low. The poor spend all or almost all of what they have; they have no choice. The rich, given extra money, invest it, often in hedging assets: property, savings accounts, gold etc. It makes sense to give more to the poor and less to the rich (however defined).

Once the various mitigation measures tail off, unemployment —and discontent—– will soar.

One can see storms coming. God grant social-nationalism the way in which to take advantage of them for the good of the people. “For the good of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].

Peter Hitchens makes, once again, a good point, but fails to point out that the present Kiev regime, posing as the legitimate overnment of the Ukraine, is a complete Jewish-Zionist sham. All the top ministers are Jewish, and at least one is actually an Israeli!

The whole point of the law is its cool impartiality, its judgment of the facts by a jury, and of the law by an impartial, dispassionate judge. If judges are going to start offering politico-medical lectures from the bench, it changes us into a completely different kind of country. In effect, a defendant in such cases is on trial for his opinions, not his actions.

Does Judge Matthews desire such a state of affairs? I doubt it. In that case she should not do this again. But I fear someone else will. Much that we used to know and trust about this country is vanishing with amazing speed.” [Peter Hitchens, Daily Mail].

All very true. Part of the problem is that “District Judges” (the old stipendiary magistrates) are not, in the traditional sense, real “judges”. Mostly solicitors who have applied for these rather simple jobs, which however pay quite well (I think that a full-time DJ gets about £110,000 p.a. now).

Very true. Recently, in the evening, I drove out of the nearby Waitrose store, about a mile or two from my humble home, and a woman crossed the road from the far pavement, riding a pushbike, and almost right in front of me. Dark clothing, and not a light showing on her bicycle; and no reflective strips on bicycle or clothing. When I overtook her and looked in the rear view mirror, she and her bicycle were almost invisible even at that short distance, despite some street lighting. Had I hit her, no doubt I would have been exonerated, but only after the nuisance and inconvenience of having to explain myself to the police.

The problem that literate, erudite System journalists such as Peter Hitchens have is that they think that this is a “debate”, and not a war…

There is an international conspiracy in existence. The Great Reset. The Great Replacement. White Genocide. NWO. ZOG. The censorship which is now pervasive and gathering pace is just part of that conspiracy.

Writing letters to corrupt MPs, tweeting, blogging too, while certainly necessary, will change little.

In Britain, both before and after the disastrous Beeching/Marples “reforms” of the 1960s [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeching_cuts], rails were taken up, sleepers removed, and —in many cases— bridges destroyed. The land was then ploughed, or built upon, with a few favoured tracks being eventually repurposed as leisure trails for walkers and cyclists, as with the Camel Trail to Padstow [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camel_Trail].

“Thoughts out of season”

Today, grey skies, dry, with little wind. In the neighbourhood where I now live, no noise at all. A strange feeling of stasis. Am I extrapolating too far in extending that to the society as a whole? Maybe not. Calm before the storm?

The latest “lockdown” has shut down society, economy, and politics to an extent never before seen in the UK, as far as I know, together with the same in early/mid 2020. As far as System politics is concerned, there is a clownish but still quite sinister UK Government, its sinister nature not entirely mitigated by its incompetence.

The official Opposition does not really exist, and is simply supporting Government policy (unsurprising in view of the fact that both parties are ZOG/NWO-dominated and that there may be no General Election until 2024), and Parliament itself is only pretending to sit. The Chamber of the House of Commons now only has a token number of MPs present when officially sitting.

The System msm has only one story— “the virus”. Everything else is all but ignored.

Under the surface, though, there is movement. We hear that half a million small and medium-size businesses are going under now or soon. Fools (including highly-paid “expert” fools in the City of London and msm) think that almost all of that hurt can be mitigated by “Government help”. Really? For how long?

In the end, notwithstanding government borrowing, the government of a country only has such financial resources as are the product of its economy. The UK economy has been partly, in fact largely, shut down for much of the past year. Now again, and until a date uncertain in March, April, or even later.

So far, the various “furlough”, no-eviction, and rent holiday measures have softened the blow, but they will not continue indefinitely.

The UK is heading for a massive economic and political crisis. There must arise a social-national movement to lead the way out of all this nonsense.

Online censorship

Heard a discussion on the Radio 4 Today Programme. “Baroness” Nicky Morgan [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicky_Morgan]. and some American Jew whose name and job I did not catch.

Nicky Morgan is promoting an Online Harms Bill, whch will cut down even the limited free speech online that still exists. The American Jew mentioned wanted even more strict “regulation”. There was (quelle surprise) no-one speaking up for freedom of expression online, unless is included the presenter.

The presenter asked the killer question, as I remembered it: “what if Twitter or Facebook decide to take down Nicky Morgan’s account, and perhaps decide to retain Vladimir Putin’s? You have no right of appeal anywhere...” Nicky Morgan did not even address that question, which is the most important.

As I have been blogging, speaking and (ironically, before the Jew lobby had me expelled from Twitter in 2018) tweeting for years, the point is that there has been “privatization of public space”.

The huge transnational quasi-monopolies such as Twitter, Facebook, ebay, Amazon, provide the citizen with no rights qua citizen, only worthless contractual rights as “customer”. There is no right of appeal to being expelled, not even in-house (worth a dime), let alone any right of appeal to an outside body such as a tribunal or court.

I suppose that the organized Jewish lobby, and their dupes, think it wonderful that the “far-right” “extremists” (so-called) may soon (as with the present Twitter/Parler/GAB situation) have nowhere to go online. When you take away the possibility to protest and put forward views and ideas peacefully, you open the door to violence, as John F. Kennedy said.

I agree. In many ways, the old DDR (which I saw, briefly, just a couple of days, in 1988) was a real police state, and had been since Soviet occupation in 1945. On the other hand, the once-free UK is also getting that way: “laws” (and “advice”/”guidance” with almost the force of law), never really validated, or nodded swiftly through an elected dictatorship “Parliament”; mass media all singing the same tune in various ways; dissidents arrested if they dare to protest on the streets or even online; young scapegoats and teenaged sacrificial lambs (often with problems of autism etc) sent to prison for years on trumped-up “preparation of acts of terror” charges. Satirical singers prosecuted for irritating Jews.

Tweeter “@cashandcarrots” has obviously missed the recent “deplatforming” of so many people with “unapproved” views: in the UK, USA, Australia etc. Not just people complaining about the behaviour of Jews, or about the continuing black/brown migration-invasion, but people examining how “the virus” came about, and what is the real hidden agenda behind it and the vaccine campaign.

Does it work with other types of skull?

Twitter has been fooling around with followings for years. When I was expelled in 2018, I had 3,000 followers. I suppose that, today, that would probably be about 6,000. In fact, many others told me that they had tried to follow but could not. There was shadowbanning etc. Meanwhile, there are those, such as “Mark Lewis Lawyer” (see above) and his one-time wife (they divorced after a year), washed-up local radio presenter Caroline Feraday, who bought tens of thousands of “followers” about 7-8 years ago.

Many Twitter accounts are Potemkin villages, with little behind them.

Twitter is basically a waste of time now, though I find it convenient to use the tweets of others in my blog.

That part-Jew clown is just posing as Prime Minister, as I have blogged since he took office.

Leaving aside the racial-cultural aspect, the prominent footballer, Rashford, is right to say that the feeding of poorer children is a complete disgrace.

Historical note

Paula Hitler’s 1957 statement:

Gentlemen!

Never forget this: Your names will long be forgotten even before your bodies have rotted away in the earth. But the name Adolf Hitler will still be a light in the darkness.
You cannot murder him by drowning his memory in your sick-buckets and you cannot strangle him with your filthy, ink-stained fingers. His name exists forever in hundreds of thousands of souls. You are far too insignificant to even touch him.

He loved Germany, he fretted over Germany. When he fought for honour and respect he fought for German Honour, for respect for Germany and when there was nothing left, he gave his life for Germany.

What have you given so far? Which one of you would give his life for Germany? The only things you care about are riches, power and never ending luxurious living. When you think of Germany, you think of indulging your senses without responsibility, without cares?

Trust me on this: The Fuhrer’s utter unselfishness in word and deed alone guarantees his immortality. The fact that the bitter fight for Germany’s greatness wasn’t crowned by success, like for example Cromwell’s in Britain, has a lot to do with the mentality of the people involved.

On the one hand the Englishman’s character is essentially unfair, ruled by jealousy, self-importance, and a lack of consideration. But he never forgets he is an Englishman, loyal to his people and to his crown. On the other hand, the German with his need for recognition is never first and foremost a German.

Therefore it doesn’t matter to you, you insignificant beings, if you destroy the entire nation. Your only guiding thought will always be, me first – me second – me third.

In your worthlessness you will never think of the welfare of the nation – and with that pitiful philosophy you wish to prevent the immortality of a giant?

What I wrote down immediately after the war has been proven to be correct. That my convictions are true is evident even as late as 1957.

Signed, Paula Hitler, Berchtesgaden, May, 1st. 1957

Diary Blog, 6 January 2021, including a few thoughts about both James Mason and the “Three Wise Men”

Prayer for the Day, the Three Wise Men, and James Mason

Prayer for the Day, Radio 4’s ludicrous and platitudinous “god slot”, broadcast daily at about 0540, once again hits comedy gold. Chris-Someone, with a possibly Indian surname that I could not catch, tells the assembled listeners (though quite subtly, not expressly) that the so-called “Three Kings” or “Three Wise Men” of Biblical legend (mentioned in the Gospel of St. Matthew) were equivalent to the present wave of “refugees” (migrant-invaders), i.e. people who deserve or at least should be proffered our hospitality.

Leaving aside the politically-correct 2021 gloss, the “Three Wise Men” have proven to be a puzzle to historians as well as theologians. Wikipedia has this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblical_Magi.

It has even been suggested (though as propaganda-art rather than serious religio-historical exegesis) that the “Three Kings”, transposed into the 20th Century, might be officers of the SS! See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gottfried_Helnwein#References_to_the_Holocaust.

[Gottfried Helnwein: Epiphany I– Adoration of the Magi; 1996]

Officers of SS-Ahnenerbe? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe.

The main SS figure in the painting looks rather like James Mason [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Mason]. Was that deliberate? Mason’s political views seem to have been obscure. There are a few faint indications, though. He was a conscientious objector during WW2, and the basis for that is (as far as I know) unknown. There is no known religious reason: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Mason#Second_World_War.

Also, James Mason was very keen, after WW2, to play the part of Rommel, in the celebrated film, The Desert Fox [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Desert_Fox:_The_Story_of_Rommel], though Rommel is, of course, famously (though perhaps inaccurately) thought of as “anti-Nazi” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erwin_Rommel#Relationship_with_National_Socialism].

In fact, Hitler did tolerate persons in high positions who were at least ambiguous in their views, so long as not proven to be actual traitors. Canaris was another example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_Canaris.

Not (presumably) to be confused with another and more obviously political James Mason: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Mason_(neo-Nazi).

Like Hitler, James Mason the actor was very interested in architecture, having been awarded a First in Architecture from Peterhouse, Cambridge, at a time when a First was worth something.

Reverting to the Three Wise Men, it has been said that they were the representatives on Earth of the three main types of practical occultism (Hygienic, Eugenic, and Mechanical). Valentin Tomberg [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg] made that claim in his Anthroposophical Studies of the New Testament and other works.

Interesting. I have blogged previously about the situation historically in the Soviet Union, where from 1936-1989 private plots (from tiny strips of garden to about 2 acres at maximum in some oblasts and republics, particularly in Georgia) produced at least 40% of all fruit and vegetable production despite being less than 4% of the country’s productive land area.

In a country such as the UK, micro-production of food cannot be the whole answer, but it can be a significant contributor, and also uses almost no transport and storage facilities. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victory_garden; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Household_plot

What Peter Hitchens forgets is that most MPs are in what even now are “safe seats”. Yes, if such MPs were each to get 5,000 or 10,000 letters from actual constituents all demanding an end to the “panic” measures of the “panicdemic”, they might sit up and take notice. As it is, even after Hitchens’ best efforts, they will each get a few hundred at most, which will not affect them in the slightest.

Naturally, as a constitutional purist, Hitchens wants to believe in a peaceful and reasoned transition to or return to actual “democracy”, but that is pie in the sky in a situation where corporatized msm propaganda is easily manipulating (mainly) uneducated, cultureless and unthinking rabbit-plebs.

Ah…seems that Hitchens agrees with me, at least in part:

Yes. Naturally, people think that it stands to reason that if human interactions are reduced, as in “lockdown”, virus transmission must also be reduced. However, if people are confined together in small houses and flats, as many British people are, that alone may increase transmission, in view of the fact that outside contacts cannot be reduced to zero.

Jewish privilege?

Europe needs a cultural purge. The world needs a cultural purge. We know where to start.

God, how sad. A 150-year-old tree, with its neighbours, it seems, felled so that more hutches for immigrants can be built. I have never seen that particular tree, but feel sad when any tree is felled or cut back, even if for better reasons, such as coppicing. As Chekhov wrote (not sure where, offhand, not I think in The Cherry Orchard, maybe in Uncle Vanya), “there are men to whom a tree is sacred“. It may even have been in Gorky’s book Literary Portraits, where Chekhov is quoted several times, Gorky having been well-acquainted with Chekhov.

Trees, even when few in number in an area, even when solitary, add so much to human perception, to the whole feel of an area, or a street, or even an individual house and garden.

This is no longer just “infringement of civil liberty” but straight tyranny, and if the police act as the goons of the tyrants, then they themselves deserve to be treated as tyrants or goons thereof.

“Wonderful” might be going too far, but still generally better than today. Amazing to see how empty of traffic was London Wall in 1966.

I recall going to London one Saturday in 1970, I believe, with a friend from school. We wandered in, out of curiosity, to a small gallery in Jermyn Street. The door to the street was open. The day was hot. We were just admiring some Old Master painting when the (?) young owner came in. A very relaxed Old Etonian type. Instead of clearing us out, he was very friendly and polite, and told us a little about the painting, before we left to explore further. London had more character then, and was still overwhelmingly an English city.

Oh, no! (see below)…

Not that utter shite again! This is an Orwellian fake communitarian North Korea-lite cringe-fest and virtue-signal Twitter-fest. The public services clapping themselves, just at the time when they offer the British people less than they have done for a century. That, and scared rabbits in muzzles, clapping because they feel socially-pressured to do so.

The whole thing is a disgrace; absolutely stupid.

I sincerely hope that everyone will boycott this stupid System “clapathon” (again).

As for “@AnnemariePlas”, I think that that was the idiotic woman who started the first “clapathon”. Danish, I think. Ah…just looked her up on Google. Dutch.

Despite her Twitter and Facebook (etc) activism, despite her “clapathon” nonsense, only 730 Twitter “followers”. Even I had 3,000 by the time the Jews had me expelled, and were I still on Twitter now, 2-3 years later, that would probably have been 6,000 or more.

Nonsense people such as Caroline Criado-Perez are bad enough. Here’s another one trying to make a career out of pointless “activism”, and on a risibly poor level.

I see now that Annemarie Plas tried to get a Christmas bell-ringing thing going too:

Best idea is to ignore this silly woman.

Repression of freedom of expression intensifies in the UK

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-9112627/DOMINIC-SANDBROOK-new-witch-hunters-policing-airwaves-chill-core.html

DOMINIC SANDBROOK: Why the new witch-hunters policing our airwaves chill me to the core…

OFCOM…these are the people who, with their new regulations about so-called hate speech on television, pose a deadly threat to freedom of expression.

Since its foundation in 2003, Ofcom has clamped down on material likely to incite hatred and violence. It has a statutory duty to protect viewers from harm — which seems fair enough, on the face of it.

But its new regulations go far beyond that.

Ofcom’s definition of ‘hate speech’ — a formula used at first almost exclusively for racism or anti-Semitism — runs as follows: ‘All forms of expression which spread, incite, promote or justify hatred based on intolerance on the grounds of disability, ethnicity, social origin, sex, gender, gender reassignment, nationality, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, colour, genetic features, language, political or any other opinion, membership of a national minority, property, birth or age.’

I make no apology for quoting at such length, because it’s worth appreciating how mind-bogglingly broad the definition has now become — so broad that it includes almost any vaguely contentious opinion.

To censors and puritans, such as the ‘woke’ witch-hunters who police social media, all this is a gift. Indeed, the new wording might have been deliberately crafted as a Christmas present for professional victims and offence-takers.

“…And here’s the most egregious example of all. According to Ofcom’s definition, anything that spreads or justifies hatred based on ‘political or any other opinion’ now counts as hate speech.

Robust arguments and strong words are a necessary part of any healthy political discourse. Giving offence is part of being human. So is learning to take it.

And what about Ofcom’s chillingly broad — and potentially very dangerous — phrase ‘any other opinion’? In effect, this implies that any criticism of any opinion, no matter how obscure or trivial, could be construed as hate speech.

Of course, Ofcom insists that it has no such intention. Freedom of speech, it says piously, is terribly important and will always be taken ‘into account’.

But what does that mean in practice? It’s just an empty phrase, with no guarantee.” [Dominic Sandbrook in the Daily Mail].

Quite a lot of what Sandbrook complains is driven (and has been for decades) by the Jewish element. I notice that Sandbrook, himself Jewish, seems to imply that censorship of “antisemitism” or “racism” is OK. No, no, no.

Still, we see now that even msm drones are getting worried about what has been set in train (mostly during the Tony Blair elected dictatorship).

Meanwhile…

Corona secret state…

So much for “liberal” Canada!

Authorities in Quebec City, Canada have announced they will isolate “uncooperative” citizens in a coronavirus facility, the location of which remains a secret.

During a press conference, Dr. Jacques Girard, who heads the Quebec City public health authority, drew attention to a case where patrons at a bar were ordered to wait until their COVID-19 tests came back, but disregarded the command and left the premises before the results came back positive.

This led to them being deemed “uncooperative” and forcibly interned in a quarantine facility.

“[W]e may isolate someone for 14 days,” Girard said during the press conference. “And it is what we did this morning…forced a person to cooperate with the investigation…and police cooperation was exceptional.”

The health official then outlined how the state is also tracking down people for violating their home quarantine and forcibly removing them to the secret facility.

“Because we have had people isolated at home. And then, we saw the person was not at home. So, we went to their home, and then told them, we are isolating you where we want you to be,” said Girard.

As we previously highlighted, the government of New Zealand announced similar measures, saying that they will put all new coronavirus infectees and their close family members in “quarantine facilities.” [Summit News]

The death reported in the above link took place in a place which I know, or did know about 50 years ago.

As a child in the 1960s and as a teenager in the 1970s, I lived (with a 3-year break in Australia) on the outer fringe of Reading, on the border of South Oxfordshire, an area called Caversham Heights [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caversham_Heights], which is only a mile, if that, from the crime scene reported upon. As a 15-year-old, I was a junior member of the Reading Golf Club [https://www.readinggolfclub.com/], which is in or by the nearby suburb of Emmer Green [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmer_Green], and the golf club land abuts that where the crime seems to have taken place.

At the time when I played there, around 1972, there were no other golf clubs in the area. I believe that two others now exist not far away, developed from what were cornfields in 1963, 1970, and even 1977.

I notice from the Daily Mail photos that, since the 1970s, the immediate crime scene area has changed from being rural to being basically suburban. Around the crime scene there now seem to be streets, houses (1980s or 1990s housing, from the look of them), where before there was no housing at all, as I remember.

As to the alleged crime itself, I am loath to comment without knowing more, particularly now that charges have been laid, but what does strike me is the general slide of the UK into criminal violence, spreading out from the urban zoos to areas previously largely unaffected.

I should add that I am not now a golfer. My enthusiasm did not last very long.

The implication and in fact purport of the above tweet is that “lockdown is the popular choice”, whereas to me the subtext is “the British people have become a bunch of scared rabbits, compliant to authority, and unwilling (perhaps unable) to think for themselves”…

According to cocaine-abuser Gove, the latest national house arrest may be in place in England until March. What then? Another stint? Will the people of this country ever wake up? Maybe when it is too late. Maybe when what is left of the NHS has been entirely ground down (leaving “Covid” aside, that is already happening). Maybe when those who still have a job find that their pay buys almost nothing.

Once again I —somewhat to my surprise— find myself in agreement with Maajid Nawaz. Must be the second or third time recently.

Freedom, what freedom?

Historical talk

Sounds interesting.

Gardens

A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!

Rose plot,

Fringed pool,

Fern’d grot…

Was just re-watching this (below). Incredible.
