Chekhov had a point. It might be argued that in contemporary Britain, and in North America, there is at least no “premature old age“, but maybe there is: true, people are living longer in years, but at the same time a strange double-aspect is seen.

The young today are careful, cautious, scared of what they are indoctrinated into being scared of, meaning “the virus”, “racism”, “sexism” etc; even taking any risk at all. In short, they often seem to exhibit traits of caution and even fearfulness, traditionally the preserve of the middleaged and, indeed, the elderly.

The other aspect seen would be a kind of juvenile attitude to life, seen in the adult, even in the middleaged. The obsessive interest in (in the UK) soccer football and (in the USA) American football. The playing of video games, computer games by those aged 30, 40, even 50+.

Other symptoms? The whole “dating app” culture. The middleaged women, often divorced, who feverishly pretend to a lifestyle more appropriate (if at all) to girls of 18 or 20. The male equivalent, as well. Also, the lack of interest in anything of a serious nature, even in those who (via entitlement more than via merit, often) are in the highest positions.

Examples? It became notorious, during the disastrous years of the David Cameron-Levita governments of 2010-2015, that the Prime Minister of the UK spent what his own civil servants called “a frightening amount of time” playing games on his mobile telephone. If I recall aright, his favourite was one called Angry Birds.

Others in that evil yet stupid 2010-2015 government had similar tastes. One was the useless Ed Vaizey (like David Cameron-Levita, a part-Jew).

Now we have “Boris” Johnson, another part-Jew, and another with puerile tastes and behavioural patterns. Someone just posing as Prime Minister, as did Cameron-Levita.

The above may explain why it is hard to form a serious non-System political party worth anything. The young are more interested in complying with whatever they are told by the msm , or in whatever is said about them or their friends on various social media platforms. The older (25+) people are not much better, and the middleaged are mainly engaged in pursuits which are extensions of juvenalia.

Politics, especially radical/revolutionary politics, requires other traits: risk-taking, commitment to ideals and to a cause, a certain selflessness, a willingness by the individual to join with others for a noble cause, as well as anger at the way things are, and a determination to struggle to a better future.

The National Socialists of 1919-1945 had that; the Bolsheviks and other Communists had that; the milder socialists and social-democrats too. Without that drive and belief, everything just trundles on as it is, or perhaps gradually getting worse.

Ha. When living in Kazakhstan (1996-97), I used to travel up to the mountains with friends in their Lada Niva. I even drove it for short distances once or twice myself. In the UK, a few years ago, I thought of buying a secondhand one, but few were available and, crucially, the Niva only comes in standard shift, not automatic, and my present (UK) driving licence only allows me to drive automatics. Quite a good budget option for off-road, though.

I generally disapprove of capital punishment, as such (for spiritual-religious reasons, and because justice must be tempered with mercy), but there may be situations where a public hanging might do much to repress those who should be repressed.

Tweeting, blogging, vlogging, putting up no-hope election candidates, can only take you so far in the present and developing climate…

Ha ha! That reminds me when a Soviet citizen visiting London in the late 1980s saw the BBC TV News, presented by Moira Stuart [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moira_Stuart], and said to me, “not only a black woman, but one with a speech impediment!“…

What would he have thought of Britain in 2021?

G.K. Chesterton and M.R. James would have been interested, I expect.

Typical ahistorical nonsense

The tweets below are typical of the ahistorical nonsense that abounds today:

Tweeted by a barrister, one of them, so I suppose that younger people reading think it “must be right”. In fact, while it is true that women (and others) could be refused service in a pub, that almost never happened simply because a woman wanted a drink. The same was true of blacks. As for “being gay was imprisonable“…no, it never was, not in the UK, though there were offences committed if actual gay sex was indulged in.

As ever, the devil is in the detail, and in the words “legal right“…

Those tweets give a false picture.

I myself was once refused service in a bar, for having entered the saloon bar of a country pub, in Surrey, while wearing muddy Wellingtons. I, and the young lady accompanying me, had to move to the (equally empty) public bar, where the floor consisted of stone flags instead of carpet. That was in 1984.

Freedom of expression

Ghastly Twit-creature Kate Godfrey, who once or twice tried to blag her way to an MP sinecure (for Labour, then “Change UK”, then LibDem) joins with other Zionists to try to get a professor at Bristol University dismissed for merely having an opinion.

Something must be done about the threat Zionism poses to freedom of expression in the UK.

Look at that. Anyone trying to stand up for free speech is immediately condemned by association. The exchange also proves my point about these endless “codes of conduct” which in recent years have been imposed, usually by Zionist lawyers, on employees (and employers, and professional organizations as well). My own experience: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

A small part of the population in the UK, less than half of one percent, is trying to take over the whole society by strategic moves, or to put it in colloquial language, by “always going for the jugular”.

Look at that puppet on a stick!

Your papers are…not in order...”

If we do not start fighting soon, the world we know will fall without a shot fired, and we shall all be serfs of powers which will only show their true evil when we are unable to resist, protest, or even express an opinion…

The first thing to understand is that ZOG, NWO, the “Great Reset”, the “Great Replacement” and “White genocide” are no mere “conspiracy theories” but happening in real time all around us now.

Only the few will soon fight for freedom and a better life. They alone will be the rulers of the world, once the powers of Evil have been vanquished.

Designed with North American society in mind, but largely applicable to the UK as well. Pretty good.

Tweeter “Martin”, above, seems to imagine that the UK is a “free country”. Well, it may have been (fairly) “free” once, before (to take a year) 1989, but no more…no more…

Government and msm in the UK are very keen to see protest, revolt and revolution overseas, preferably in countries not yet under ZOG/NWO control, but they scream “terrorism” if anyone tries it in the UK.

The most corrupt elements of the UK are in the msm, Government, Westminster in general, and embedded in the parts of the economy closely allied to those sectors. Also, the Zionist element.

Ah, I forgot about the Saturday quiz this past weekend…

Well, I am back on winning form, having scored 8/10 (Rentoul got 5/10). I did not know the answers to questions 6 and 10 (I thought that the answer to question 10 was two banks).

Hutches for migrant-invaders?

I myself was born in Reading, and brought up mainly (except 3 years in Sydney, Australia) where Berkshire meets South Oxfordshire.

I first saw a black person in Reading when I was 6, maybe 7 (a consultant at the Royal Berks Hospital), and saw a second one in 1970 when I was 13 and had returned from Australia (the second one was a uniformed nurse on a bus). In other words, there were very few blacks (or South Asians etc) in Reading at that time.

By the early 1970s, there were some. I saw a playground full of black children when my train from Newbury Racecourse station to Reading stopped for a few minutes on a viaduct overlooking part of West Reading. That was 1973 or 1974.

Recently I heard some West Indian woman interviewed on radio. She said that she “had been brought up in Reading, which of course was incredibly multicultural.” Not sure to what year(s) she was referring, but must have been 1980s or 1990s onwards.

A huge demographic and cultural change, mostly negative, has occurred in the UK, especially in parts of England, in the past 50 years. Near-disastrous.

Too late. Labour has (probably) passed the point of no return. It has thrown away the Scottish “proletariat” and its descendants, and is doing the same in England and Wales, meaning the poorer white people. It is left with the “blacks and browns” and the public service employees. Not more than about 25% of the voters. Yes, some others too, but unlikely to do much better in ?2024 than in 2019 or 2017.

If (when?) Scotland leaves the UK, Labour will have no chance even of minority or weak coalition government, because it has no real prospect of getting more MPs in Scotland, and the SNP’s MPs are at present Labour’s only hope for forming even a minority government.

Needless to say, at present the 80-seat-majority pseudo-“Conservative” government has no need to consider proportional representation.

“Prevent”

Even now, I am sometimes incredulous at the biased and pervasive Jewish-Zionist influence, penetrating right into official government operations. See, for example, https://www.governmentevents.co.uk/covid-19-conspiracy-theories-and-extremist-grooming/

You don’t feel trapped…you are trapped. And soon will be more trapped…

How well I know that area! In the 1980s and early 1990s I was often walking there, perhaps visiting the wine merchant cellars under the viaduct, or strolling along the viaduct itself, not far from Leather Lane market, the Bailey, and the old, now closed, Holborn Viaduct rail station [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holborn_Viaduct_railway_station]

Diary Blog, Christmas Day 2020

Greetings on Christmas Day to all Christendom and to the wider world.

Historical note

An historical note from Christmas 1939:

https://research.calvin.edu/german-propaganda-archive/christmas1939.htm

From 1942:

Brexit

It might be said that I should not write about ordinary political matters on Christmas Day, but the news having just been announced yesterday about Brexit, a few more words are needed.

As I said yesterday, “Boris” has decided to put on the mask of a tragi-comic Chamberlain rather than a tragi-comic Churchill. He says now that he has, belatedly, delivered Brexit. Of sorts, arguably. It is all rather underwhelming.

From what I have seen so far, it seems that the agreement made is all right in many respects, not very satisfactory in others (continuing security and intelligence co-operation, for example). https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/dec/24/from-tariffs-to-visas-heres-whats-in-the-brexit-deal

This goes beyond BRINO (Brexit In Name Only) but not very far beyond.

Having said that, the agreement has pretty much shot Farage’s fox as far as the EU is concerned. I think that, though opposition to EU norms will continue on the fringes, this means the end of Brexit and EU matters as central in UK political discourse. Effectively the end of 20 years of Brexit/EU being political drivers in the UK.

To a large extent, the agreement has also shot Labour’s fox re. the EU, too. Labour under Keir Starmer has become almost invisible. Unsurprising. Starmer-Labour has, with minor carping, supported the “Conservative” Government on almost every issue in the past year, from the “virus” messaging and the facemask nonsense to Brexit. It seems that that support will now continue in the Commons vote on this agreement (next week, unless delayed). The agreement will thus be approved, with minor rebellions on the fringes.

As far as the general public is concerned, this agreement will draw a line under Brexit, politically.

The agreement seems to cover most of the factors important in the public mind, such as (by implication) the Roma gypsy element looting the UK from foreign bases, and also the low-paid foreign workers, Poles etc, coming to the UK as of right; the food standards now staying where they are (because the UK will not drop below EU norms, so no American chlorinated chicken etc).

It looks as though animal welfare in farming etc is covered (the UK is ahead of most of the EU states in that respect anyway).

Yes, there are sacrifices made: the fishing part is not very good for the UK, though at least there will not be the first Anglo-French naval engagements, in the Channel, since Napoleonic times. Britain’s fishermen have been, to some extent, sacrificed for the wider good. That means that the head has ruled the heart, fishing being only 1% of the UK’s GDP.

Also, British people will (or may) find it less convenient to live or work in EU states, though most live rather than work (retired people etc) and that happened even before the UK joined the original EEC in 1973, though on a smaller scale. People just had to apply for a carte de sejour in France, and the equivalent elsewhere.

There will be some grumbling about this from both “Brexiteers” and Remainers but, as a major political issue, Brexit has been finally put to bed.
