Well, it may be “propaganda”, but it is also most certainly true. Britain would not survive a nuclear attack, not as any form of state or nation that we recognize. Millions dead, millions more in agony from blast, fire, or radiation. Almost all infrastructure destroyed. Anarchy/chaos on the streets. The blacks in any surviving big cities running wild. No food, almost no water. No hope.
Is that what the NWO/ZOG “elected” dictatorship —now incompetently running the UK— wants? Notionally, to support the NWO/ZOG Kiev regime of the Jew, Zelensky, but with the not-unlikely result of a nuclear exchange. Madness.
Incidentally, reading the part of that report noting a Russian TV debate, it occurred to me that there is more real free speech now in Russia than there is in the UK. What a world…
This madness has to be reined in now, while that is still possible.
Ukraine military situation:
Nothing outwardly startling. Having said that, it seems that the limited Ukrainian counter-attacks seen in past weeks have run out of steam. None are shown on the above map, at least.
It seems (thanks to the msm pro-Ukrainian bias, we have make educated guesses, because the msm is not reporting properly) that the forces of the Kiev regime are running out of fuel. Maybe ammunition as well.
If the Daily Mail map is accurate, there is a sustained Russian push south from around Izyum, and a similar push further to the south-east, both pushing into areas of the central part of southeast Ukraine.
Russia may not be “winning” this terrible mess of an invasion/war, but it is not “losing” either, not yet. In the end, Russia can, in theory, destroy Ukraine completely, though that would be a terrible thing and, to use the old expression, a terrible sin.
If only the invasion had been planned and executed properly. Then it would have been completed within a week or two, Zelensky captured, killed, or exiled, and a different Kiev/Ukraine government put in place.
The Russian General Staff and intelligence services seem to be almost useless in the post-Soviet, “Putinist”, era.
A few thoughts about the French Presidential Election 2022
The mistress also, previously, had an involvement with the son of Nicholas Sarkozy, himself a part-Jew.
What strikes me immediately is that, had Zemmour not been a candidate, effectively all of his vote would have gone to Marine le Pen, who would then have received over 30% of the vote and been seen as front-runner.
Having said that, Macron still won fairly easily in the second round— 58.5% to Marine le Pen’s 41.5%. Two factors: the Melenchon vote, that part of it that did not abstain in the second round, went mainly to Macron; presumably mostly non-white voters. The second factor was the ennui that led to a low turnout (71.9%), the lowest in over 50 years.
As in the UK, there is no significant or credible social-national party in France. Though I myself can agree with some views or policies of both Marine le Pen and Zemmour, neither is truly social-national, and of course Zemmour is a Jew.
Were there a credible and genuine social-national party in France, it could probably either get a majority in a presidential election, or enough support to take over in another way.
I hope that it is better in the UK, but I doubt it.
Nearest large city square. Firing squad. End.
I have a few remarks about the NHS as it is now, but it is too late to post them here; maybe tomorrow.
Angela Rayner is not only as thick as two short planks, but also was photographed together with Jewish-lobby puppet Starmer, both down on their knees in fealty to the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense.
There is now no, or virtually no, peaceful electoral road for white European people.
Had a slightly disturbing dream (in fact not unusual for me), involving rather dystopian landscapes, cities, and society, as well as Vichy France, oddly enough. My “takeaway” from that was the (perhaps not hugely original, and it had in fact often come to mind in the past) that societies could be numbered 1-5 (or more) on a scale of evil and/or repression.
On that basis, a “normal” pseudo-democratic society of the 19th-21st centuries might be a “1” (some repression is almost inevitable in any civilized society of the present era) or even “0” (though it is hard to think of any), whereas the “Killing Fields” Cambodia or “Kampuchea” of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in the late 1970s might be a “5” [see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khmer_Rouge#Life_under_the_Khmer_Rouge], as might the regime instituted by the Isis barbarians in the Middle East not very long ago [see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_State].
No doubt it is possible that future societies might descend in behaviour to a “6” or “7”, while others might be able to maintain themselves at “0”, societies in which individual rights and the good of the collective would be not simply in balance, but in harmony, the individual freely choosing the path of conscience, and that choice never conflicting with —and in fact upholding and promoting— the goals of the collective society.
Looks as though at least one msm scribbler has started to wake up to the fact that Russia may prevail in the present conflict. Readers of this blog will know that that has always been my view, though not the writer’s further comment that that would some kind of disaster (beyond the immediate and terrible destruction and hurt caused) .
Ecce the deracinated Brit plebs, who do not care that their country, and all Europe, and the European-descended world, is sliding to destruction, so long as “their” football club (owned, probably, by a cosmopolitan Jew, and with most players black, Middle Eastern, North African, or some mixture) is doing well in some league or other; or so long as the “England” team (probably mostly non-white) is playing well in some bloody tournament somewhere in the world.
Opinion polls now have Macron several points ahead of le Pen for the second round of the French Presidential election, but about 10% are still undecided, so there is, as yet, all to play for.
How long before we see that in the UK? The “Covid” toytown police-state of 2020-2021 was a warning of things to come, possibly.
The aim of the System is to introduce a regime of microchip “Covid passports”, leading to a microchipped population. Add to that electric cars all fitted with GPS satnav, and almost everyone with a trackable mobile telephone, and you have much of the population, and 99% of the “important” people (those with any real influence or power, or heavy money) tracked, if need be, 24/7. The Stasi of the old DDR (East Germany) would have killed for that level of surveillance.
Indeed, it may be that, years down the line, all cars will be able to have their controls overridden by a centralized system, so that a car might actually be able to be directed to deliver an unwilling person directly to the “authorities”.
To my way of thinking, London, like most European cities, is better thought of as horizontal rather than vertical. That, however, has not been the trend of recent decades.
I can remember a time, in the late 1970s, when the whole Docklands area was still a post-industrial semi-wasteland. The foot-tunnel from Greenwich, under the river, came out into the Isle of Dogs as it used to be, an undeveloped (since the 19th/early 20thC) scene which, after dark especially, was both sinister and interesting. Pubs, some ugly and tacked onto 20thC council housing, a few other pubs quirky and picturesque, those latter very old and far predating the Victorian docks and dock buildings.
In 1979, there was no Canary Wharf, no expanses of new expensive housing, no Docklands Light Railway and, further afield to the east, no London City Airport.
Would be interesting if Arab/North African voters resident in France, and who mostly vote for Melenchon, were to take this as a signal to vote for Marine le Pen in the second, or run-off, round. That might assure her victory. Very ironic, like a Greek tragedy. Or should that be comedy?
The migration-invasion shuttle is now relentless, ferrying blacks and browns across to the UK every single day.
Weird little Jew (at one time apparently some kind of SIS/MI6 gopher) with a ridiculous wig on his skull, and he is actually an MP…
When you see what sort of persons are now MPs, you can really start to comprehend just how sick this system is…
The latest news is that 1,000 Ukrainian fighters have surrendered in Mariopol. Russian forces have all but taken those southern hold-out cities.
As blogged previously, the strategy now is probably to go north from the Russian-held Sea of Azov littoral, to push to and/or through Zaporozhye and Dnipro [former Dnepropetrovsk] and then north again, to meet with Russian forces pushing south/southwest from the Kharkov and Izyum areas.
As previously blogged, if the Russians can draw a line —and hold a line— approximately Kharkov-Dnipro-Zaporozhye, then all Ukrainian forces east of that line are doomed. Once that happens, attention can again turn to both Kiev and Odessa.
Independent American journalist in Ukraine and Russia
Readers of the blog may be aware that persecuted singer-songwriter and satirist, Alison Chabloz, will be sentenced tomorrow (Thursday 14 April 2022) for having supposedly contravened the notoriously poor Communications Act 2003, s.127. She has posted the following:
Migration-invasion shuttle service provided by Border Force (“Border Farce“), Royal Navy, and the suborned RNLI.
I have tried to cover this issue before on the blog. Not easy, mainly because earnings of barristers in private practice (i.e. not salaried employees working for government or companies) vary widely, indeed wildly. Anything from almost pennies to a million or more a year.
The general public tends to think of barristers averaging at least a couple of hundred thousand a year, but in fact many (especially those doing legally-aided criminal and family law work) are earning well under £100K, and many of those are making below £50K.
Needless to say, the public does not feel very sorry for those earning as much or more than they themselves do, but at the same time, barristers do have many extra expenses, which can take thousands or even tens of thousands off their gross income.
In the end, there has to be an effective court system, and that does mean having at least a corps of advocates, and that composed of at least reasonably proficient persons, which in turn posits the need for adequate remuneration.
Seems unaware that “Queen’s Counsel” is spelled thus, not “queen’s council“. Writes books on the criminal justice systems of several countries, apparently. Also, it should have read “German lawyer“, not “German Lawyer“. Oh, and “principle“, not “priniciple“…
I do not have comment re. that map specifically, beyond what I wrote yesterday, i.e. that the Russian immediate strategy seems to be to draw a line from Kharkov to Dnipro (former Dnepropetrovsk) and then down to where Russian forces are near Zaporozhye, to defeat all Ukrainian forces east of that line, and to occupy everywhere east of that line.
The Russians are now playing what is called, in chess, a positional game, relying on broad strategy and slow accretions, rather than swift tactics and bold moves.
Ukraine is now, having been for 30 years close to being a “failed state”, a complete shell of a state, at least in the east. The latest statistics show that its economy has collapsed by 50% or more already. It has limited vehicle fuel, and the besieged areas lack not only fuel, but food, ammunition, and even water in some cases.
Russian forces in Ukraine face logistical problems —unsurprising in a country the size of France— but not shortages as such. Time is on the Russian side in that sense. Their forces can be resupplied.
I should think that the Russians will start to target any large Ukrainian troop concentrations, as well as resupply lines, using more powerful missiles launched from inside Russia.

Good move, but probably wasted on most of the “wiggers”…
More accurately, both NATO and the EU are distinct but connected components of the Western power matrix as it now is. The New World Order/Zionist Occupation Government [“NWO/ZOG”] matrix.
It seems that Russian forces have withdrawn not only from the Kiev area but from the area north of Kiev generally. Without taking Kiev, there is no real victory, no matter what else happens.
It seems now that the Russian strategic aims in the short term are to secure and hold the Donbass area, encircle and capture or destroy the Ukrainian forces there, then to push from the north (Kharkov area), the south, and the east, creating a line broadly Kharkov-Dnipro [former Dnepropetrovsk] and down to, or linking with, Russian forces already occupying the Sea of Azov littoral.
If the Russians can do all that, then (once Dnipro and Zaporozhye are taken or besieged) they will have about a fifth of Ukraine (half of Ukraine east of the Dnieper) under their control.
In other news, it seems that the UK is sending anti-ship missiles to Odessa. If Russian ships start to be sunk from Odessa, then it is not unlikely that the response will be swift and brutal. The city of Odessa may be completely destroyed by missiles and artillery if the Russian Black Sea Fleet comes under serious attack. Very sad from the historical and aesthetic point of view (and, of course, the humanitarian one).
It looks as though the Russians are degrading the Ukrainian fuel reserves and supply lines. Without fuel, the Kiev regime forces will become little more mobile than the armies of Napoleon and Wellington.
Ammunition continues to run out for the Ukrainian forces.
Despite msm reports etc, this still looks like a winnable military situation for Russia, in the short to medium term. I read today that (as predicted in this blog) Russia is now calling up recently-active reserves, i.e. former soldiers who are still reasonably “current”.
Politically, of course, and in terms of public relations, this Ukraine adventure has been disastrous for Russia, not because of the invasion as such, but because of how it was so badly planned and executed. Also, because of how unsuccessful it has been, overall. Pathetic, and terrible in all ways.
I have often thought how Russia needs a degree of isolation in order for the seed of that future age not to be poisoned by whatever now exists in the world, centred on “the West”, meaning on North America, Britain, and then western and central continental Europe.
Ironically, it now appears that it is the West itself which is sending Russia into that isolation, via economic and cultural sanctions.
Russia is one of the few countries in the world which can, if necessary, do without the rest of the world, in economic terms. 72 times the size of the UK, and 2-3 times the size of the USA (depending on whether Alaska is included), Russia has the land, the climatic zones, the varied natural and human resources, to make autarky work.
Russia could create an entirely different form of human society. It tried and failed already, with Marxism-Leninism, but that was building houses of straw. On another basis, such an attempt can succeed.
The once-mighty French Socialist Party…2.1%. UK Labour should take a look at that. That is what happens when you do not really have opposing policies behind the surface rhetoric.
All of the Zemmour vote will go to Marine le Pen in the second round, putting her around 31%, with another 19-20 points to make up from somewhere. It is possible.
Look at the big picture: Marine le Pen around 24%, Melenchon around 20%, Zemmour around 6% The three most radical candidates scoring together over 50% of the vote.
“Boris”-idiot must love the Ukraine (war). He can now once again play the Poundland Churchill, and pretend that the ever-greater problems at home do not exist— inflation, cost of living, cost of housing, lack of housing, mass immigration, migration-invasion, finance-capitalist exploitation, violent crime etc.
The System across Europe, and especially EU-Europe, is so corrupt and fake that one almost gives up hope at times, but if Marine le Pen can get to the Presidency of France, there might be hope for a real “new order” in European diplomacy and politics, for a halt to the crazed and headlong rush to war with Russia, and indeed for a rapprochement with Russia.
The “Valhalla”! Interesting name. Sign of the times?
I am not much of a car buff. In my mid/late teens I rode first a Vespa scooter (max speed about 55 mph), and then a 250cc Suzuki motorbike (max speed 108 mph, accomplished one late evening on the then —1976— almost empty M23, from Brighton to Surrey), but only had a licence to drive a car from the age of 42, and then only because I was living on a Caribbean island where there were virtually no taxis, and no public transport.
I have now held a UK licence for about 20 years, with almost no problem: a couple of small accidents —not my fault, in my opinion— and a couple of speeding tickets, the speeding offences both in 2005 (40 mph in a 30 mph area, and 97 mph on a 70 mph road).
Make that three if you include getting caught by a motorbike cop in Normandy in 2007 (going about 95 mph on a ~66 mph dual carriageway road). On-the-spot fine.
A few times, at about 2 or 3 in the morning, on empty pay-autoroutes in Northern France, I cruised at up to 130 mph in my then car (a Volvo), but rarely saw another vehicle, and was never bothered by the police.
I usually potter around my local district at about 30 mph now, so would have no use for the Aston Martin Valhalla, which can apparently reach speeds of up to 217 mph.
Actually, cars such as the Valhalla are symptoms of a wider pointlessness in world —and especially Western— society. A car that can go 217 mph, yet which will mostly be seen crawling at 5 mph in the congested traffic of central London or Monte Carlo, or along the roads of Bel-Air at 20 mph, and probably driven by a 20-year-old Gulf Arab.
Ha ha! Good news! If the “monstrous carbuncle” returns, the only solution will be to hire bulldozers…
The intentions are certainly not “worthy“, but yet another expression of Jewish tribal supremacism. If “they” want a so-called “memorial” (to events which may or, more likely, may not have occurred, or at least not occurred as narrated, nearly a century ago, and in another part of Europe, and which had nothing to do with Britain anyway) then let “them” put it on a small artificial “Boris island” in the Thames Estuary. Come to that, put “Boris” on it as well.
One wonders why the Russians have not broken up the rail system in Ukraine. Is it because they want as many Ukrainians as possible to flee westward?
The only way Russia can now achieve anything looking like an overall victory is to flood Ukraine with hundreds of thousands of troops, and then strike at Kiev, in particular, with its best in-theatre units.
The present Russian tactics, of making almost random missile or other attacks on urban targets here and there, are not only giving Russia a terrible reputation across the world, but not achieving anything from a military point of view. They seem little more than malicious, and are certainly being presented that way by the Kiev regime and generally in the Western msm, on social media etc.
If Putin does not get a grip, Russia itself will eventually implode.
Yes, I see the opinion polls saying that 60% or 70% or more of Russians “support” the invasion and war, but even if so, that is volatile; it can change.
In my own lifetime, I have seen not only governments but whole regimes of society, whole states, implode. The Soviet Union itself, which looked unassailable even a few years before it collapsed; the DDR (East Germany), which I visited only a year before it collapsed and then ceased to exist; Rhodesia, where I was in 1977, and which gave up its struggle only two years later to become yet another corrupt and shambolic black-ruled failed state (Zimbabwe); South Africa; Iran. Others, too.
Perhaps Putin’s Russia will go the same way as its predecessor, the Soviet Union, and just fall apart internally; the EU and West generally might do the same before too long.
…because, as we all know, history either started in about 2010 or, at most, in the early 1940s (with the “holocaust” farrago)!
When will this nonsense end? I suppose that the answer is “in 2022 or 2023,when the West, the NWO/ZOG West, triggered the Third World War, and both Europe and North America were all but obliterated, together with their crazed ‘woke’ societies“.
“Climate change”, “Refugees Welcome”, “Black Lives Matter”, “Covid”, “Ukraine”— what’s next? What nonsense is next??
The Jew-Zionist element on Twitter is already crowing because persecuted singer-songwriter and satirist, Alison Chabloz, has apparently been convicted again under the notorious “bad law” of the Communications Act 2003, s.127, which may be repealed in the next year or so.
Once again, the persecution and prosecution of Alison Chabloz was instigated by “the usual suspects”, primarily the so-called “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, [“CAA”] who have publicly admitted targeting Alison Chabloz over a period of (now) about 6 years, at least.
It seems that Alison is now on bail, pending a sentencing hearing next Thursday afternoon.
Strange. The msm is constantly yapping about how, for example, Russian dissidents are under attack by the Russian state, yet here, in our once supposedly “free” country, a lady is prosecuted and convicted (and has previously actually been imprisoned) for singing satirical songs about the “you know whos”.
Charles Dickens is fortunate that he is dead; were he still alive, no doubt “they” would come after him as well, and he might also be sharing the dock with, among others, Shakespeare, Wagner, Chopin, Schumann, Hilaire Belloc, G.K. Chesterton, the Brothers Grimm, John Buchan, and thousands of other great and/or original thinkers and artists.
Simple-minded and basically hysterical young women of that sort have been the mainstay of all sorts of emotionally-driven campaigns resulting in Very Bad Results over the past half-century or so: decolonialization, anti-apartheid/pro-ANC Mandela-worship, “Black Lives Matter”, “Refugees Welcome”, “Climate Change”, “Covid”, etc etc. “Ukraine” too, now.
Listen to that hysteric! For example, Madagascar’s problems are, says she, caused by “climate change”, not the fact that countries like Madagascar are inhabited by backward and often totally useless people, some of whom are the corrupt, shambolic, and useless “governments” of such failed “states”.
Fascinating to trawl back through Twitter, in that you see people tweeting this week the same sort of stuff, indeed often exactly the same stuff, that they were tweeting 4+ years ago. Pathetic. Pointless.
Saw one of my own comments, but on the GAB system, from nearly 4 years ago, from when (in mid-2018) I was expelled from Twitter at the instigation of a pack of Jew Zionists. Most of my tweets are now unavailable, but a few were copied and reposted, either by supporters or enemies, and so are still available, as are a few old GAB remarks (I do not bother with GAB now, nor with other social media platforms).
Still seems very arguable to me.
Ha ha! Below, another of my old tweets, reposted by some idiot angry that the Guardian scribbler Martin Belam used it in his semi-obit. piece about deceased and once-famous actor, Peter Wyngarde:
Interesting to see, now again reading that Guardian article online, that my above tweet and also a few others are now just blank spaces. Testament to the ever-intensifying censorship on Twitter.
Incidentally, I see from those old tweets about me, that yet another person who declared war on me (online) seems to have died (at least his Twitter account trailed off over 18 months ago, though only just now noticed by me).
That has happened to rather many Twitter twits, most of whom were just “me too” pile-on idiots who neither had had any direct contact with me at all, nor thought to behave decently, or just politely, in tweeting to, or about, me. Good riddance to them all.
In fact, at present a few other long-term, malicious, and venomous anti-Millard tweeters are presently in very poor conditions of health (which came upon them suddenly, it seems), and may not be around for much longer. As the Chinese proverb has it, “the stars in their courses fight on the side of the just“…
Putting it more lightly, #TenGreenBottles…

Meanwhile, the sinister part-Jew clown posing as Prime Minister stokes up conflict with Russia so that he can play the Poundland Churchill. The real Churchill was partly responsible for the start, and certainly for the continuing after 1940, of WW2. Will the “second time as farce” Churchill am-dram copyist, “Boris”, trigger WW3? If so, “goodbye England”…
I doubt that most French voters really know Macron’s full political and career background, in particular the Jewish cabal that has always pushed and promoted him.

The holy multikulti society programme must never be challenged. That’s why it happened as it did.
Exactly. There are supposed to have been nearly five million “cases” in the UK last week alone! Hardly anyone even felt unwell. The whole Covid scam “panicdemic” train has hit the buffers now. It has just become completely and hilariously nonsensical.
The social, medical, and economic results are, however, not at all funny.
Were I a dictator in power, I would hang Professor Ferguson, and some others, high high high…
…and if anyone gets angry at the MP-parasites, and so much as emails them to express that, the toytown police are at the door in a flash…So much for our “democratic” “freedoms”…
As frequently expressed previously, Russia should have been able to seize the most important parts of Ukraine swiftly, efficiently, and without massive damage or loss of life. Sadly, that failed miserably. Russia now has to fight for its own very future down the line.
The Ukraine invasion has become the Ukraine war. It is a ghastly bloody mess. I hate what has happened, and feel very sorry for those suffering, but Russia must now fight on, and win the eastern and southern parts of the country, come what may.
Putin must call up the three million reserve troops Russia has, and then just steamroller the Kiev regime.
Jonathan Sumption was one of the first barristers, in the 1990s, if not the first barrister, to earn over a million pounds per year in fees (albeit that a few pre-WW2 barristers made a similar real amount, in the money of their day). He later became a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary, aka a “Law Lord”, i.e. a Justice of the Supreme Court (nb. not Lord Chief Justice— that is something else). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Sumption,_Lord_Sumption.
The above post is factually (and grammatically) inaccurate in that, but not wrong otherwise.
Now, because he has spoken out against the trashing of civil liberties and formerly accepted rights since the start of the “panicdemic”, Sumption is regarded by the System (of which he was, in a sense, part), and the msm, as a “conspiracy theorist” and effectively a crank.
Wake up, England!
I scored only 5/10 this week, same as political journalist John Rentoul, though I really knew one more (question 10) but it slipped my mind. I did not know, therefore, the answers to not only question 10 but also questions 1, 4, 6, and 9.
Ha ha! You see the same lack of self-awareness in the Zionist Jew milieu online.
When I was up before a Bar Disciplinary Tribunal (which eventually wrongfully and unlawfully disbarred me in October 2016), one of my defence points was that the (eventually, only 5, out of 150,000+) tweets I had tweeted, and which were adjudged so offensive that I had, supposedly, no right to tweet them, had been tweeted in my personal capacity; also, that my Twitter account made no mention in its profile that I was a barrister.
The Tribunal, and the Bar Standards Board, twisted a very few other tweets to “prove” the contrary. All the Jews applauded both that (and my wrongful/unlawful disbarment).
Later, some of those very Jews, and who are solicitors or barristers, faced the same or similar problems as I had, but made the same plea, that their comments were made as part of their non-professional life. Other Jews weighed in on their side. What a pack of hypocrites they are (too)!
On the wider point, I have been blogging and (before the Jew lobby had my much-read Twitter account removed in 2018), often tweeted about the “privatization of public space” online. That also formed part of my talk to the London Forum in 2017.
On Twitter and other online fora, one has no rights beyond very limited contractual ones. There needs to be an independent appeal process but I fear that the Jewish element would infiltrate that (too), were it ever to exist.
As for the £37 BILLION completely and utterly wasted on NHS “test and trace”, how infuriatingly crazy, when that money could have gone to new rail infrastructure, hospitals doing proper clinical work etc.
We need a mixture of ignoring the bastards, exposing them, and rising up against them.
All too many white people (in the UK too) simply accept the agenda being pursued. All too many ignorant and/or ill-intentioned schoolteachers and officials are poisoning the minds of the children, without sanction.
I notice, in that clip, among the most guilty of the school board officials was one “Ziegler”. As they say, “every single time”…
This whole nonsense of over-reaction to the virus must be ended! People who are completely or effectively OK are now being told to isolate, not to go out, not to go to work. Important functions such as control rooms for power generation and transport are ceasing to operate, all because of this pathetic testing and tracing regime.
At some point, the country must wake up from this whole delusion.
“Well, I now have to praise the BBC’s Nick Robinson for saying this on the Today programme on Wednesday: ‘The evidence is that the masks that most of us wear, the one I have got here in my pocket, a sort of cotton mask that you either make yourself or that you buy, gives you no protection at all, absolutely none.’ After ages of assuming that loose cloth masks are effective, this must be the first time a major BBC presenter has stated the experimental truth. Yet nobody seems to have noticed.” [Peter Hitchens, in the Mail on Sunday].
“Ultra-feminists despised the decent, honourable tasks of motherhood, claiming that the only road to fulfilment lay in wage-slavery outside the home. Any fool could have told them that paid employment is not the road to freedom, but they did not want to hear this. And nobody has yet devised a way of getting men to embrace the tasks wage-slave women no longer have time to do. So they don’t get done.” [Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday].
“Lots of idiots still admire Cuba, believing the propaganda of its nasty, despotic junta. I think this is because so many of the former student revolutionaries of the 1960s imagine themselves in beards and fatigues riding at the head of a triumphant revolutionary parade into the fallen citadels of conservative, Christian civilisation.
The truth about Cuba – that it is a miserable, rationed secret-police state that even has first-class money for the elite and second-class money for its ordinary people – has always been unwelcome.
So has the fact that this potentially wealthy country is run by drearymiddle-aged bureaucrats, fearful of their subjects, with brains of solid Marxist concrete, about as rebellious and romantic as a public lavatory. Yet the youthful, barricade-storming image must still be maintained. Its official radio station, a conduit of weary, censored propaganda, is called Rebel Radio.
But now a real rebellion against these self-styled rebels has broken out on the streets of Havana. It looks to me like a proper uprising from below, not orchestrated by anybody.
And the admirers of Castro’s squalid state – who still litter the BBC, the universities, the schools, the media and the Civil Service – don’t know what to do or say. For they do not want to admit that, like the man they long admired, they have themselves become an intolerant, inflexible ruling class.“[Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday]
Very true. I have argued all my life against idiots who thought that Marxist-Leninist or derivative regimes in the Soviet Union, Cuba, North Vietnam, Nicaragua, and now Venezuela were decent and worth supporting.
As far as Cuba is concerned, the sort of people who even now support it are (generalizing wildly) like the NHS doctor whose cottage near Totnes I was once (2001) thinking of renting. She could not show me the place because, I was told, she is “cycling in Cuba”. Cuba is revered by some because it trains vast numbers of health professionals, who are then ordered to work in other countries so that Cuba can get foreign exchange, or barter goods.
As for the British and other mugs who supported the Cuban-inspired Sandinistas in the 1980s, they are still around, those that never woke up (to reality, not “wokeness”), and now support Venezuela, “Black Lives Matter” etc. Nicaragua itself is now suffering under the ex-Sandinista rebel, Ortega, and is a complete mess, but the “woke” idiots have other idols these days.
“Che” would not necessarily now be on their side, had he escaped being given a couple of rounds in the head in Bolivia over 50 years ago:
Socialism of the old type has frozen Cuba in time, to an extent that even the Soviet Union was not. Occasionally one sees TV people doing travel shows about Cuba. I think that Michael Portillo did one mainly about Cuba’s shambolic trains; Chris Tarrant certainly did.
Cuba’s trains are apparently kept going by all sorts of weird and wonderful methods, rather like those “iconic” 1950s American cars that ferry tourists around Havana.
Havana itself is falling to pieces. Occasionally, buildings just collapse after decades of little or no maintenance.
To some extent, I can see why some British, other European, American, people “support” Cuba: it has stood its ground against its superpower neighbour, it has its own identity etc. Other people have felt that way about other small and embattled states: Rhodesia, Israel, Taiwan, even North Korea. However, that is a sentimental attachment (if any) better indulged from a distance.
Cuba is basically a shambles. Admittedly, I myself have only seen it directly from the air (overflying from Tampa, Florida, to Grand Cayman), and from the sea (between Cuba and Jamaica).
My only contact with Cuban bureaucracy was when some British and expat Iranian scientists asked me to help find a sponsor for their biofuel project (I called it, to myself, “making gold out of straw”). A couple of countries were interested. This was in or about 1995.
The Ukrainian Ambassador in London even accompanied me (in his rather nice chauffeur-driven Lexus limousine) to Porton Down research centre (Wiltshire) one day, to meet with the team at their labs. That led to nothing, but at least the Ukrainians were interested. The Cuban Ambassador did not even reply to my letter! That despite the fact that Cuba would have been ideal— a country in need of fuel, with a huge quantity of otherwise unusable biomass (sugar cane detritus), and with a large cadre of scientifically-trained labour. Useless. Well, there it is…
How many millions of humanoid rabbits will be pointlessly “self-isolating”, and to what extent need the country collapse, before enough people wake up to the fact that this whole thing is a nonsense? People are being played like balalaikas.
In other words, Macron is a puppet of NWO and ZOG, right the way through.
Robert Peston is Jewish (or possibly part-Jewish…I am uncertain), but not particularly, if at all, sectarian. He was not brought up to be sectarian, I believe I read somewhere. That kind of distinction was recognized, up to a point, in National Socialist Germany, under the “Nuremberg Laws”, where those who were Mischlingen, or part-Jew, were treated in law differently depending on whether they adhered to Jewish religious communities etc, or not: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_Laws#Classifications_under_the_laws.
As can be seen in those tweets and reports, the Jews in Israel use “lawfare” (“legal” warfare) to get what they want. When that fails on its own, they use illegal methods, pressure, corruption, and ultimately violence. In the end, it is little different in the UK, France, and other places where Jews exist in large numbers.
Jess Phillips was interviewed by Stephen Sackur on BBC World Service recently. Hard Talk? Rename it to Soft Soap! Talk about being given an easy ride!
I am waiting to see what happens when facemask-wearing is no longer mandated by law in supermarkets etc (tomorrow). “Boris”-idiot has of course weaselled by saying ppl still “should” wear them! What a spineless bastard he is! He has all the leadership and prime ministerial qualities of a jellyfish.
Yes. Much of the scare regime of the past 19+ months has been superficially “voluntary” (the idiots wearing facemasks while cycling in the country etc). There was some Jew, a few years ago, who ran a thing at Downing Street called the “Nudge Unit”, trying to pressure the public to do this or that without using law. Is that unit still around in some form?
…and the usual idiots and Greta Nut supporters are already saying that Germany is flooded because of “climate change”, despite the fact that it has happened many many times before.
Peter Hitchens is sadly deluded here, though perhaps if only a tiny handful were to vote, it might present a moral challenge. That never happens. Not in major elections. Voting is usually pointless; abstention is always pointless. Something else might get rid of the present nuisances, but I think that, in the present climate, I prefer not to suggest it…
Surely it cannot be denied that his presentation and manner are closer to those of Jew comics than of English statesmen?
Eton and Oxford may put a gloss on someone such as “Boris”, but that gloss is a very thin veneer.
More late tweets
Still, let’s make our protest tomorrow (Monday, 19 July 2021). Masks—OFF!
