Boris-idiot has tested both positive and negative for “the virus” within 24 hours, it seems. He feels, he says, perfectly OK, yet is again “self-isolating”. When, WHEN are people going to snap out of this nonsense? The vast majority of those infected with “the virus” feel either all right or slightly under the weather. Many are also naturally immune. That applies to most under 70 and particularly applies to those under 50. This “panicdemic” is mainly mass hysteria whipped up by those advising government.
“Aldous Huxley’s great prophetic novel Brave New World was written on the assumption that the ideas of its founder, Henry Ford, especially that ‘history is bunk’, would one day take over the planet. He may yet turn out to be right.
Certainly, Ford’s desire for a world of vast mass-production factories in which the workers were paid enough to keep the economy going by buying their own products seems to be coming true. But nowadays it is mainly coming true in China and South Korea, and failing in Detroit itself.
America’s fabled rise to world power and wealth may only have been an overture to China’s seizure of world dominance.” [Peter Hitchens, The Slow, Sad Death of Detroit]
Only the triumph of new social nationalism, based on the European and European-descended peoples, and allied to the Russian people, can stand against the rise of China and the proliferation of the blacks and browns.
Dan Hodges may not “get it”, but I do. Boris-idiot has no idea what to do, nor how to do it. So he obfuscates, as always.

Of course, that quotation describes various types in the UK quite well: the [pseudo] “socialists” who put the migrant-invader hordes on the same level as the British people; the similar Twitter idiots who think that Twitter, Facebook, YouTube have every right to censor content and expel people because “they are private companies”; the Scottish “nationalists” who have non-Scots and indeed non-Europeans as ministers in the “Scottish” “government”. Etc.
The “useful idiots” of the Great Reset.
Shai Masot was the Israeli intelligence officer (and one-time Israeli Navy reserve officer) caught on camera by Al Jazeera. He was recalled to Israel. Presumably now shovelling the hummous (or humous?) in some desert outpost.
I have to say that he seems remarkably unpolished (and remarkably casual about security) for someone in his line of work.
Still, he and his Jewish colleagues (Israeli and “British”) managed to destroy both Labour’s electoral chances and its leader, Corbyn (see below), so he was not such a stumblebum as at first appears…
A “fifth column” in the UK.
Jews also planned (in the 1940s) to poison London’s water supply. That never happened, but they did poison the water supply to two cities in Germany, though with limited effect.

Why would two supposed “nationalists” be playing the “antifa” game? As an outsider, it seems very strange to me.

Quite. In fact, that may be exactly what this is., though a more serious version. The secret groups now know that a judicious mix of “laws” (even if not formally valid), “rules” (not backed by valid law) and “government advice” (given, by eager police woodentops, the force of both “rules” and “law”…), and fear propaganda, can cow 90% or more of the British public into doing what they are told, even if it means wandering around towns wearing ridiculous and useless muzzles, even if it means complying with ever-more contrived shutdowns, “rules”, social behaviours etc.
I went out this evening to get fuel from an automatic pump, and to check tyre pressures on my old car. On the way back, I stopped in a village for some fish and chips, something I do not do very often but enjoy occasionally.
The fish and chip shop was empty. Pre-“virus”, it always had a line of customers waiting. Inside, facemasks were de rigueur, the three staff were also wearing them, and were now partly behind a perspex screen. I bought what I wanted,and left. As I left, I saw a woman with her little girl waiting outside to come in, obviously unwilling to enter until I left. The woman and child were both wearing masks! In the empty street! As I left, they shrank back, lest the Plague get them!
The fear propaganda is instilled now. Well-instilled. The other point that struck me was whether or not that useful fish and chip outlet could survive with almost no customers. Will the three pleasant girls working therein soon be on the dole? Oh, sorry…”Universal Credit”…
That was being called “a conspiracy theory” and “fake news” as recently as yesterday…
“Virus” infections tail off before “lockdown” (shutdown)
So infections are apparently declining in number across much of the country, and were declining days ago, in other words before the second national “lockdown” (ruinous shutdown) of society even started.
Will this wake up the “lockdown” and facemask zealots? I doubt it. As for the Government, it cannot admit that the measures are useless or even counter-productive…
The (((Guardian))) goes full globalist and finance-capitalist.
Of course, the “mad psychiatrist” is a cliche, but there is often a kernel of truth in cliches, of course. In this case, the doctor in question seems to imagine that most shops are open ( they are not) and that most people are not masked (I should hope not; the facemask nonsense is only mandated, by the —probably invalid— law, inside shops etc).
The above tweet is actually the true voice of the Twitter pseudo-intelligentsia. Begging to be controlled, and wishing full control upon a cowed population; wanting everyone to be miserable and dependent; also, either ignorant or uncaring of the damage to the economy (which will eventually have its effect on pay, State benefits, services, infrastructure). A typical Twitter virtue-signaller.
Indeed. Neither is that urge to exert petty power confined to the police. All the heretofore gophers and wage slaves such as receptionists, supermarket cashiers, shop staff generally, have been rather enjoying their (presumed, assumed) power to tell visitors to adjust their masks, stand back etc. Some stray idiots started to tell complete strangers they encountered, or who were nearby, to do so! I see less of that now, compared to a few months ago, probably because the mask zealots got barked at a few times by freedom-fighters or dissidents (like me!)…
Needless to say, I have little time for Raheem Kassam, another of the “alt-Right” or “alt-Lite” wastes of space (Breitbart, “Prison Planet” Watson, “Sargon of Akkad” Carl Benjamin, Katie Hopkins etc), but it is telling that Kassam’s online newspaper has now been suspended (removed) from Twitter. I was expelled, David Icke has been expelled. Many others as well.
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” [John F. Kennedy].
Today is the 103rd anniversary of the Bolshevik seizure of power in Russia, a coup d’etat in one city of one corner of a vast empire, which flame spread like a wildfire across those huge territories. A cataclysmic and largely catastrophic event. Probably the single biggest reason why Russia does not today rule the world, or is not at least the most influential state…
The Russian Revolution, that is the real one, in early 1917, not the mainly Jewish putsch headed by Lenin in October (old-style) 1917, did not emerge from nowhere. The social inequities under Tsarism provided the fuel, then events (not Bolshevik propaganda) provided the spark that set that fuel alight.
The Bolsheviks were in fact almost an irrelevance until 1917. Their numbers seem to have been between 5,000 and 50,000 until that year. Lenin himself was not even in Russia until two months after the first or real revolution of 1917. His putsch merely took over an existing situation.
I doubt that many, in the Russia of, say, 1913 or 1914, could have predicted that the Imperial state (and society) would fall so easily and so comprehensively.

“Like Peter Finch’s deranged newsreader in the 1976 movie Network, Shelley Tasker is mad as hell and isn’t going to take it any more.
As England was pitchforked into another debilitating lockdown, she set up an amplifier on the steps of Truro Cathedral, grabbed a microphone and began telling passers-by what’s ‘really going on’ in the NHS. Within minutes she had attracted a small crowd.
Shelley has resigned in disgust from her job as a healthcare assistant at Treliske hospital and wants the world to know why.
The idea that the NHS is overrun, she said, is a pack of lies. ‘I can tell you now that at the height of the pandemic I had no work because there were no patients.
‘On Friday in Treliske there were three people with Covid. We’ve closed down Cornwall because three people are in hospital.’
She also claimed that patients who died from flu were being registered dishonestly as Covid victims on death certificates.
Yesterday the chief executive of the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust confirmed that in the county’s main hospital there are just seven patients suffering from coronavirus, three of them in intensive care.
Yet on the strength of that minuscule number of cases, a county of 565,000 people is being shut down. Businesses are again closing their doors and many will never reopen. Cornwall, like the rest of the country, is braced for a jobs bloodbath.” [Richard Littlejohn, in the Daily Mail]
The above echoes my recent experience of having visited a small hospital in Southern England a few times and briefly. Almost deserted.
I see that Littlejohn compares the “virus” madness, and the behaviour of the police and others, and just as I did a day or two ago, to the film The Lives of Others, about people in the pre-1990 DDR (East Germany). Or does Littlejohn read my blog? (he also uses some of my typical phrasing…). Actually, quite a few journalists and MPs (etc) do read my blog.

I have had a few experiences in recent years that actually surprised me re. police, about how ignorant of the law they often are and how unwilling they are to be instructed even by me, a former barrister who appeared many times not only in the lower courts (magistrates’ courts, Crown Court, County Court) but also in the High Court.
Happened to hear Lord “Gus” O’Donnell, former head of the Civil Service, on BBC Radio 4 PM, a show that became so pathetic and self-indulgent over the years that I stopped listening (in common with, I suspect, almost all of its one-time audience).
Switching over from Radio 3, I heard O’Donnell say something quite striking: churches, said he, had become “community hubs”, along with other places. He added that, instead of being the House of God, they were now the House of Good, by which he meant communitarian good works and societal cohesion.
It could be argued that the two are almost synonymous. “God, or whatever means the Good...”, as Louis MacNeice wrote in one of his poems, Meeting Point [https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/91396/meeting-point]. Another analogous substitution might be “Common Era” instead of Anno Domini, along with “Before Common Era”, BCE, instead of Before Christ (B.C.).
Having said that, and however good the motives for turning churches into combination coffee shops, cafes, souvenir shops, therapy centres, food bank outlets and concert halls (or village halls), the inevitable result of all the social and cultural noise is that a certain spiritual peace is lost. To put it in a more sensationalist way, God is squeezed out, though squeezed out, of course, for the best of motives…
I wonder whether Lord O’Donnell was ever connected with Common Purpose? I should not be surprised.
Not that his radio interlocutor above has the moral high ground, as a scribbler for the Sun “newspaper”…
The “lockdown” and facemask nonsense is largely being driven by people (MPs and others) getting generous pay and expenses from public sources, and who are unaffected by the trashing of the economy.
Remember remember the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot,
Life is short but memory long,
And traitors deserve to be shot!
Completely expected. The troupe of clowns pretending to be “our” government will do whatever they want to do, lie about it, weasel about it, and laugh at the people they pretend to govern.
The hypocrisy is ingrained. I have only ever seen one episode of The Simpsons, when I lived in New Jersey in the very early 1990s. I cannot recall the storyline, but the show ended with Bart Simpson sitting down and starting “…so, kids, now you know that war is always wrong...” before reconsidering…”oh…except the war against Saddam Hussein…oh, and the Second World War… and the First World War, and of course the War of Independence, and…” You get the idea.
Human beings are often hypocritical, and rarely totally congruent. The hypocrisy and incongruity rises to 99%+ in politicians of the type we have, those Adolf Hitler called “dirty democratic politicians”, though the UK versions are rarely even “democratic” in any real sense.
More accurately, government-created ghost towns. This madness is now totally out of control. Hardly anyone under 40 is at real risk of both becoming infected and suffering serious effects, yet the whole country is still more or less shut down.
In fact, even most people over 40, but under 70, are only at low risk.
When Alison Chabloz started getting seriously persecuted by the pack of Jews known as the “Campaign Against Antisemitism”, manipulating compliant or suborned police, a few years ago, Martin Bashir [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Bashir], then recently-appointed BBC Religious Affairs Correspondent, was observed creeping around the garden of the house in the Derbyshire Peak District belonging to Alison Chabloz’s aged parents. In fact, “creep” seems to be the best description of the bastard.
I would define (((the problem))) more directly…
True, but ditch the outdated and almost meaningless “Right”/”Left” stuff.
Yes. Putting the clocks back and forward is one of those things that are implemented for doubtful good reasons, but then get stuck and carry on for years, or decades, because society is too lazy to bin them. Other examples would include dog licences, radio licences and having only a ludicrously small amount of foreign currency purchaseable in person, the amount being written in your passport! All of the foregoing were in existence, though the licences were mostly ignored, until Mrs. Thatcher junked them in or about 1980.
We sometimes think that societal progress or change is automatic, when in fact, often, things do have to be actually disposed of actively.
Which will be a perfect get-out for Boris-idiot and SAGE (“DUMB”— Department Under Matt and Boris). “Coronavirus flaring up? Oh, it’s because all those dissidents and Covidiots are not complying with our rules…”. Forgetting that France and Spain have had far stricter “lockdowns” etc and yet have a far worse death rate per 100,000 from (with) “the virus” than has the UK.
The “virus” in the UK peaked in early April, and has been falling ever since, but only in the past couple of months has the population been forced to wear facemasks…Absurd. They make no difference at all.
Latest conspiracy theory
What follows is the latest conspiracy theory about “the virus”. I know that it is the very latest, because I have just made it up. I have no evidence at all for it. Not that it might not just be true…
My instant theory is that an international conspiracy has decided to reduce both the world population and world economic activity by releasing a virus which, like multiple independently-targeted re-entry vehicles (MIRVs), will take multiple forms, killing some people, creating long-term infertility in others, and mutating to return in ever more deadly forms for years. Meanwhile, those behind the facade of national governments will keep both political and economic control, repressing dissent, preventing mass gatherings and even small conclaves.
Well, I make no claim as to the accuracy of the foregoing, but it may be correct all the same…

As for “lockdowns” supposedly “protecting the NHS”, the NHS staff have been protected (many are working from home, and not even at hospitals and medical centres) but the patients have in many cases been left to sink or swim…
The present Parliamentary system “needs scrapping“, too!
The present clownish government in the UK has no real, let alone radical or revolutionary programme to promulgate and execute. It is swept along by events. There may be an overarching “international conspiracy” “programme”, but that goes beyond this discussion and is being directed from secret sources. As far as the “Conservative” Party government led or headed by Boris Johnson is concerned, it really has no programme at all. Rudderless.
Boris-idiot resembles the jester or court fool of the mediaeval period, who is made “King for a Day”.
Who to blame? Obviously, firstly, Boris-idiot himself. It was his ambition to be “World King”, —Prime Minister is the nearest offered by the UK— that has led him to his present rank.
I blame also the Conservative Party MPs, who supported “Boris” as party leader, thinking that he would be popular with the voters. I blame, also, the 90,000+ (out of 140,000) Conservative Party members who wanted “Boris” to be their leader.
Most of all, I blame the uncritical mass media, the scribblers and talking heads of which have been promoting “Boris” openly for about 20 years.
What of the voters themselves? Yes, they, at least those that voted for Conservative Party candidates, are also to blame, but they were misled by the msm, which promoted “Boris”, and at the same time demonized Corbyn. The Jewish lobby was a large part of that.
Still think that you live in a “free and fair” “democracy”?
Here (above) we see Peter Hitchens offering a non-solution to the problem. Abstention, while it may send a vague message of sullen resistance to the System (eg if the voter turnout is 10% rather than the usual General Election figure of 60%+), achieves nothing beyond that. The same parties (in Hitler’s words, “the dirty democratic politicians”) will fight for that 10% just as they usually do for the present 65% or 70%), ignoring the non-voters.
Any similar graph showing world “Covid-19” statistics would be even more striking, because in the world as a whole a million have died, but of course that is out of eight thousand million! One death for every eight thousand people on the Earth.
Once again, above, Hitchens has no answer except to say “don’t vote” or “vote for someone/anyone else”! Parliamentary democracy as we have known it for the past couple of centuries just does not do its job any more.
Sometimes this country (as it now is) infuriates me, often it exasperates me. “Bloody Sunday” is one example. Whatever the rights and wrongs, the fact is that those events took place nearly 49 years ago. In earlier ages, Britain (Ireland maybe not) made history, good or bad, then moved on, to make new history. These days, everything drags on forever.
It is the same with the Hillsborough football stadium thing. Yes, very sad that people died in an incident probably avoidable, yes the behaviour of some of the police and Press was wrong, but it was 31 years ago. Enough!

Corbyn libel case

That compares to about £318K a couple of months ago.
The mouse that roared
On my way back from, as the Americans say, running an errand, I decided to call in at a “Mole Country Store”, one of a medium-size chain of such outlets. I had only been there once or twice over the years.
They had instituted a silly “one-way” system, presumably in case someone is a plague-carrier. I went through the labyrinth without finding what I wanted, so approached one of the two cashiers, a woman in late middle age wearing a mask despite being behind a perspex screen.
I pulled my disposable facemask down to say “I am looking for…“, and that was as far as I got before the harridan barked (and that is the accurate term) “PUT YOUR FACEMASK ON PLEASE SIR!” (the “Sir” very much the kind of “Sir” sometimes tacked on by the police to some sarcastic remark, or by instructors of Army officer-cadets, as in “you will call me Sir and I shall call you Sir; the difference is that you will mean it.”…).
After a brief exchange in which it turned out that “Mole Country Store” did not have the product I wanted (I think that the old bitch was lying, in fact, in order to mess me around), I expostulated that “this is nonsense!“, as I stormed out, tearing off the mask.
There were only three customers anyway (it was much busier there a few years ago), so it may be that the place is living on borrowed time. I hope so, if that is how their serfs treat the customers. Anyway, they have just lost one customer.
I think that the sort of situation just described is one of the worst aspects of the Government-imposed nonsense of the past months. That woman is no longer a poorly-paid wage-slave in some rural store. Oh, no. She is now the guardian of publc health, who can bark at people to do this, do that etc. All sorts of nuisances, pains-in-the-whatever, and busybodies, have been emboldened and their existences somehow validated by the “lockdown”, “social distancing” and now facemask nonsense imposed by Boris-idiot and his Friends of Israel regime.

Is that woman’s face and expression that of the British police, or of what amounts to that of a merciless invader, alien and wishing harm to us? I hope not the latter, but am not very optimistic.
Looks like the rest of the country is catching up fast with long-time critics of the part-Jew public entertainer presently posing as Prime Minister.
I have been anti-“Boris” for well over a decade.
When I saw a brief part of Prime Minister’s Questions last Wednesday, “Boris” looked not so much crushed as flattened. That was not entirely because of the onslaught on him by actually rather unimpressive Angela Rayner. I think though (and last PMQs thought for the first time) that “Boris” really is, in the time-honoured phrase, now “considering his position” as Prime Minister.
As I blogged a day or two ago, “Boris” enjoyed being PM so long as it amounted to him posing as “World King” (his stated ambition when he was 8 years old). Now, he has understood that, especially in fractious times, being Prime Minister involves the storied “blood, sweat and tears”. Difficult choices and decisions. Trenchant criticism from many, including political “friends”. Nowhere to hide, most of the time. A British Prime Minister may not have to be on display as he gets dressed, unlike the Bourbon kings at their morning “levee”, but apart from that is on display most of the time.
You might think that an exhibitionist such as “Boris” would enjoy the attention which is an inevitable part of being a Prime Minister of the UK, but I apprehend that “Boris” does not like being put on the spot or questioned. Who does, actually?
Theresa May hid away as much as possible, leading to her ludicrous election speeches in 2017 to selected bunches of people in remote aircraft hangars. “Boris” has tried to hide in a fridge, in a tent, at Chequers, and elsewhere too, but his very rank now seeks him out. You cannot “work from home” as a Prime Minister. There is no home, really.
In the end, people want to be Prime Minister for one or more of several reasons: vanity; to accomplish particular things; out of a sense of duty; in order to be at the peak of executive power; malice, meaning to deny the position to others.
Boris-idiot has no ideology, no real ideas, no sense of duty, and has really only the vanity of having attained to the position, and also the sense of power, of being able to hire and fire etc.
Boris has no ideology, that much is obvious. He pretended at one time to have a kind of libertarian, “free-market”, 1960s Hong Kong-meets-Milton Friedman ideology at first; a “can-do” cartoon American self-help view of the world which indicated a total lack of self-awareness. After all, where would “Boris” be without the education (and for “education”, read “connections”) bestowed by Eton and Oxford and bought by his pushy careerist father, and family generally? Every job “Boris” messed up just led to another and another. “Boris” has never had to struggle, because family and other connections always helped him.
Any ideological sense has now left “Boris”. The one-time cartoon “libertarian” now tries to force the British people to wear facemask muzzles, to keep x-feet away from each other, to have no more than 6 people together at any one time, even at family gatherings etc. When was the last time there were such killjoy “laws” (which in fact may not even be —valid— laws)? The Second World War? The Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell?
As for free-marketism, the Boris-idiot government has prevented many businesses from operating profitably or at all, while at the same time propping up those and other businesses with public money: airlines, train companies, bus companies, restaurants, pubs, hotel chains. You name it.
All that in the name of suppressing a virus which peaked in the UK in early April of 2020, and which has been killing fewer and fewer people ever since. Yesterday, the latest figures showed about 4,000 people “testing positive” for “the virus”, most of whom showed no symptoms at all! Meanwhile, about 20 or so people died “from” (with) that virus (supposedly). 1 person dying for every 2,000 known to have the virus.
This is madness. “Boris” made the wrong call right from the start, by “locking down” (shutting down” much of the economy and almost all of our society, even churches and the House of Commons.
“Boris” was misled by the risibly misnamed “SAGE” committee (I prefer “DUMB”— Department Under Matt and Boris).
I do not blame “Boris” for making the wrong call, but I do blame him for not admitting his mistake in due time, for not stopping the “lockdown” after the first few weeks, and for not reining back the excesses of the toytown police across the country. A police state is bad, but a silly toytown police state is in some respects worse and certainly leads to a disrespect for all the institutions of society.
What are the ideas of Prime Minister “Boris”? Schoolboy fantasies of bridges across the Irish Sea, a bridge across the English Channel, of tunnels under the sea, of garden bridges across the Thames, cable-cars across the Thames (the only one that was built, but which is of little use); again, of sci-fi artificial islands, on which were to be new airports and high-tech industries. All fantasy, not thought through.
I think that I prefer the fantasies of Ludwig II of Bavaria, who at least realized some of his, leaving fairytale castles in the Alps for the wonderment of latter-day tourists. Neuschwanstein, Linderhof etc at least were built. “Boris Island”, the “Thames Garden Bridge”, the Scotland-Ireland tunnel etc, will never be.
Looking at Boris-idiot now, there is little beyond a deflated balloon. I think that, in his heart (such as it is), “Boris” knows that he is no good at being Prime Minister, and, in that heart, wants out. However, he will not want to resign in disgrace. That means that he has to keep on pretending that the “lockdown” was necessary, that the “local” lockdowns (which now cover or soon will cover much of the country) are necessary, that the fairly recent facemask-muzzling of shoppers (but not pubgoers or office workers) was and remains necessary.
“Boris” is like someone, an employee, who has bet with the money of the company and cannot leave without exposing his dishonesty and incompetence. A political Nick Leeson.
We see now that a raft of stories emerge about how “Boris” cannot live comfortably with his latest quasi-wife and latest child on the poor salary of a Prime Minister, about how crowded are their living conditions at Downing Street, how they actually have to pay something for their food and drink (!), and how they cannot even use Chequers for entertaining their friends without actually having to pay for said friends!
Can you believe it?! The bastard thinks that he cannot live easily on his salary (nearly £160,000 gross), in addition to which salary he has a free flat at Downing Street, a free country house and park at Chequers, free chauffeured transport etc.
“Boris” thinks that the public funds should pay for food and drink for himself and the “ho”, and for their friends!
This seems like a testing-the-waters for a “resigning for personal reasons”, which might include “health reasons”, i.e. that the idiot’s health has been so damaged by “the virus” that he has to step down as Prime Minister. He can then put forward a narrative such as “wounded in action” or equivalent.
No doubt he would not step down as MP, thus enabling him to keep getting the MP salary and expenses, and to scribble his cretinous rantings in the popular Press (for which he was getting £250,000+ p.a., incredibly). No doubt a book or two would also be scribbled. “My Life” and/or “My Time As Prime Minister“, “Me and the Virus” (etc).
For the first time, I thought over the past week that “Boris” might be gone within a year or so. Who then will be (“unelected”) PM, just as “Boris” was when he took over from Theresa May? Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak, he of the disastrous furlough payments? Somehow I doubt it. Mass unemployment, probably just around the corner, will put paid to him, probably. Another Indian, Priti Patel? Good grief! I hope not. As dense as Channel fog. What about little Matt Hancock? This is absurd now…but that is the political system we are in…
It seems that “the peasants are revolting”!

Further, guess who argued for those “good” prisoners, mostly blacks, to be kept longer in prison so that they could slave for the State? None other than Kamala Harris, the Democratic Party candidate for Vice-President!
Well, I myself would forgo the steak, or perhaps change it for fish or shellfish, but otherwise that sounds pleasant. Maybe some roasted sunflower seeds too.
I was listening to some System propaganda yesterday on the radio. Unsure now whether it was BBC World Service (probably was) or Radio 4. The only other radio station I listen to regularly is BBC Radio 3. Anyway, that broadcast said that deaths “from” (with) “the virus” now top a million worldwide. Well even taking the million figure as accurate, that is one million out of a world population of nearly 8 BILLION, i.e. 8 thousand million. One person dead from or with “the virus” for every 8 thousand people living on Earth now (in rough figures).
There is no need for “lockdowns” (which huge harm both socially and economically), let alone facemasks.
Took a look at the statistics for 2020. So far, tens of thousands of hits from nearly 10,000 individuals. With four full months to go until the end of the year, the number of hits already exceeds the figure for 2019 by about 7%, but the best aspect is that the number of individuals has jumped by 25%. It will be interesting to see the final figures for this year.
The number of “likes” from other WordPress users is also up, but few are ever given (on anyone’s blog) anyway. I had to laugh at the number (as of today) though: 88! True… Is it synchronicity?
Most readers of blogs do not belong to the platform, whether WordPress or other, so the number of “likes” means little. Most blogs get only a few in any given month. Likewise with comments. WordPress blogs are not like social media accounts such as Twitter.
Why does one bother? It is a way of influencing society, even if in a very small way; on the other hand, “one human soul is a big audience“, which I always think was said either by St. Thomas Aquinas or St. Dominic, or maybe even St. Augustine of Hippo, but in fact I have never been able to find the citation.
Who knows who might read my blog and be influenced by it? The next young Alexander? Perhaps a young reader who, after I leave this Earth in my present incarnation, will create the new civilization which I myself, at least so far, have been unable to bring to life and power.
A few “thoughts out of season”
I am 64 years of age in a few days’ time, though I do not —usually!— feel it. Two years until I am 66, in 2022. 2022 can be expressed as a 6 (2+0+2+2), and (by one system of numerology) the number of my name (Ian Robert Millard) is 666, though I should add that I am scarcely a —let alone the—“Beast”!
Like “the stars in their courses“, I “fight on the side of the just” (an ancient Chinese saying).
2022 is the next world-historic year. The last, 33 years before 2022, was 1989, the key year in the collapse of socialism across the world. Socialism did not collapse in one year alone, of course. It had been slowly dying for decades, indeed since the previous year in that 33-year cycle, meaning 1956 (also the year of my own birth).
When I say “socialism” here, I refer to all post-1945 varieties, from the kind of social democratic idea seen in postwar UK, Sweden, New Zealand etc through to the extreme versions seen in the Soviet Union, China, Albania etc. True, China still has and is ruled by the Communist Party, but that party rules over a society completely capitalist. Yes, there are a few unimportant remnants of ruined socialism here and there: Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela (which only became notionally socialist in the 1990s, though there were socialistic elements in Venezuelan society in the 1950s and 1960s). The point is that these countries are exceptions, and poverty-stricken exceptions. The mainstream of the world has moved on from old-style socialism.
After 1989, the Soviet Union ceased to exist as a socialist state, though the Soviet Union continued in name until 1991.
After 1989 and the —superficially— unsuccessful Tiananmen Square protest, “socialism” became a figleaf covering only, just like “aristocracy” has been for a long time in UK society. Deng Xiaoping had said that no-one cared what colour was a cat, so long as it catches mice. That was why socialism had to be superseded, because as an economic model it “does not work”.
In the UK, the social democratic idea was fully espoused after the Second World War, certainly from 1956, by all three “main parties” (the two real main parties —Conservative and Labour— and the joke Liberal Party). That consensus (“democratic socialist” Labour, in existence in essence since the late 19thC, and “One Nation” Conservatism, also deriving originally from the late 19thC and Disraeli) broke down in the 1980s.
In the 1990s, the “Conservatives” travelled to a more finance-capitalist, anti-Welfare State position. “Labour” dropped “Clause 4” (which notionally committed the party to widespread nationalization —socialization— of the economy). Within a few years, after 1997, Labour had become completely “cosmopolitan finance-capitalist” under Tony Blair and the Jew Mandelson, who declared that he was “intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich“.
While the Jew Mandelson held secret meetings with Rothschilds and “Russian” Jew oligarchs in Corfu villas and elsewhere, Attlee and Bevan rotated in their graves, and the remaining “socialist” element in Labour seethed, led by the dissident MP, Jeremy Corbyn.
Despite much talk, the “socialist” Labour element under Corbyn and, before that, Ed Miliband, was unable to struggle successfully against the Zeitgeist. The General Elections of 2015, 2017 and 2019 proved that old-style socialism is dead. That despite public disquiet at the weakening and partial dismantling of the “Welfare State”, mainly under the Conservative Party governments since 2010.
In fact, that weakening of the UK “Welfare State”, though intensified after 2010, had started long before, and was in evidence during the Blair-Brown years 1997-2010. For example, the disgraceful ATOS organization was given its first contracts not by the Conservative Party governments (2010, 2015, 2017 and 2019), but by the Labour governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown (1997, 2001, 2005, 2007): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atos#Atos_Healthcare.
People in the UK tend to think that policy is made by individual governments, when in fact there has always been a “deep state” element underneath, carried on in secret, or in semi-secrecy. The influence of, inter alia, freemasonry, Common Purpose, the Jew-Zionist element, the Bilderberg element etc are all part of that. Look at Welfare State policy since, say, 1997. There have been differences between and within parties, but the main themes continued beneath the surface chatter.
As we move to the next significant year, 2022, we see that neither old-style socialism/social democracy nor finance-capitalism satisfies the needs of the people. A new movement is required, both in the sense of a “party” or political organization, and in the sense of a movement in and of society.”
“For the welfare of the people is the highest law” [Cicero].
Time moves on
I found this graphic from 2018, not seen for quite a while. It was produced by the Jew-Zionist (and misnamed) “Hope Not Hate” crowd. It shows those who met (in my case, once, at a clifftop cafe, because someone thought reliable had asked me) a young Swede whose real name is said to be Patrik Hermansson, and who posed in 2017 as a Swedish student called Erik Hellberg. Personally, I think that “The Rat” suits him better, but that’s just me…
It will be noted that I was placed, as if a denizen of a contemporary “Inferno“, in the circle of the “holocaust” “deniers” [bottom right of the graphic].
I tend to be rather anti-social both in the ordinary meaning and politically. I do not mix much, in fact scarcely at all. For all that, I can see that political life has moved on in the intervening <2 years.
Some people have become more prominent (Alison Chabloz for one), others have retreated from the limelight: Jez Turner, Stead Steadman, Colin Robertson (“Millennial Woes”) etc. The London Forum is inactive. The “alt-Right” in the USA (as far as I can tell —I do not keep up with all that in detail) has developed a sharper edge, it seems.
The graphic does not of course purport to be a comprehensive map of the “nationalist” side of UK/US politics. As for the work of “The Rat”, he was wasting his time. His paymasters at “Hope Not Hate” eventually produced a film, but it sank like a stone. I think (not sure) that it did get a screening on Channel 4 or Channel 5 around midnight one evening, and the same in Belgium and Sweden. I myself cannot recall seeing it.
The most interesting aspect of that graphic is what is not there: “lone wolves” in the UK and elsewhere, German rural-sanctuary nationalists and national socialists, those setting up a mini-ethnostate in the Pacific North West of the USA etc.
In fact, the behaviour of the pseudo-socialists and “antifa” idiots really highlights the sheer bankruptcy of their socio-political position or stance. They beg to be masked, muzzled, controlled, restricted by the State. They have nothing at all to offer in terms of policy or a way forward for society.
You see the same phenomena in the UK, the “anti-racist” and “antifa” types whose life revolves around trolling people on Twitter, saying negative things about those they deem “fascist” or “neo-Nazi” etc. They know nothing, have no real ideology, and put forward no programme of their own. Politically irrelevant.
…and look [below] at these idiots, sitting talking while wearing facemask muzzles! Complete idiots. This really is a ******* farce, but most people are too polite or too compliant or too brainwashed to say anything!
Listened to BBC Radio 4 Profile about Dido Harding: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dido_Harding. Sounds like she is the sort of person who gets into highly paid positions (eg at Talk Talk, where she was paid millions for failure) because of whom she knows rather than what she knows (or does). A modified and female example of the Peter Principle [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_principle], except that she has been appointed to her present position having serially failed in others. Pathetic country, pathetic government.
The fat man in his muzzle is [update: tweet gone] typical of the aggressive and/or mentally-disturbed facemask zealots who have been emboldened by the ludicrous fake “law” being misused by Boris-idiot, little Matt Hancock, Cressida Dick etc.
Below, “antifa” gassed! I’m lovin’ it (even though I think that Trump is completely unfit for public office)!
Hitchens is right as far as he goes, but fails, once again, to point out that Boris-idiot’s most significant characteristics come not from his few years at Eton (or Oxford) but from the fact that he is part-Jew, part-Turk/Levantine, born in New York City, brought up as child in Washington DC, New York and in Brussels. He is at least half-foreign, in short. Of course “Boris” is not really English in attitude, because he is not really English!
It's not 'paying for the virus'. It's paying for the lockdown policies that many of us never wanted, agreed to, or believed were necessary.
Most NHS doctors are saying nothing because, quite simply, just as Aneurin Bevan said that he had overcome the opposition of the BMA and doctors to the establishment of the NHS by “stuffing their mouths with gold” (relatively high salaries and the chance to do private work on the side etc), Boris-idiot and little Matt Hancock have stuffed the mouth of today’s NHS doctors with more gold, via immediate 4.5% pay rises for less work done…
Hitchens may or may not be aware of it, but Americans have always treated their prisoners, especially political prisoners and/or prisoners of war, very badly. Those suspected of being involved in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln were kept muzzled and with hoods over their heads for months in some cases.
Indian “clever boy”, Rishi Sunak, who was briefly touted as a future UK Prime Minister when he started throwing money around to ameliorate the effects of his own government’s policies, established the “eat out to help out” programme. 50% off, up to £10 a head, I believe. Well, I just heard anecdotal evidence:
A lady I know went to a seaside cafe/restaurant one morning recently. Her purchase was modest, a single cup of coffee. When she went to pay (£2.20), she was told that she only had to pay £1.10 because of that scheme. A woman also waiting to pay then chimed in to the effect that her family now dined out three times a week because it made eating out almost as cheap as eating in.
Well, that lady whose family use restaurants three times a week and get a discount for it may enjoy the scheme, but the whole thing is being paid for by the public as a whole; by the poor too, who may not pay much in income tax but who certainly pay VAT and, if employed, National Insurance.
Why should the people as a whole pay to subsidize the cafe visits and restaurant excursions of the rich, the affluent and the comfortably-off? Like so many government policies now, there is just no logic and no justice behind it.
A very striking piece of architecture, quite exciting, and I do not hate it as much as tweeter “Western Traditionalist”, but I hear what he (or she) says. It is a symptom of cultural decadence, for sure.
As for the “architecture” below, that really is just disgusting, and should be demolished or destroyed.

The latest victim of the “lockdown” shutdown madness
Pizza Express to shut 67 restaurants out of 449. 1,100 jobs “at risk” (gone). I wonder how long the other 382 Pizza Express outlets will last. Pity. I have used their places quite a number of times in the past, and particularly, in the 1990s, one of the oldest ones (which was founded as long ago as 1967), situate in Coptic Street, near the British Museum.
First, from tweeter “@tph110”, below, an example of the LGBTXYZ nonsense that has taken over, in the UK and elsewhere, from even the semblance of real old-style “socialism” (which latter died around 1989, in all its forms):
Only social nationalism is grounded in social and political reality.
Below, Stephen Silverman, the “CAA” troll, snooper and malicious complainer to police, CPS, msm etc, who (with other Jew friends) used pseudonyms to bully several women online (as exposed in open court), laughs now that he thinks that he has got away with it (the police tried to interview him but allowed themselves to be fobbed off):
Saw the tweet below, from an independent cinema in Leicester Square (London) which I have in fact never visited:
Life is hard for independent cinemas, which is a pity. They often feature the sort of films otherwise only found on DVD, video, or (rarely) late-night TV.
I see what they mean; I was thinking more of the interior as it was, with its delicate glass lamps (creating coloured sidelighting, like a Christmas tree in the dark).
The cinema showed Russian-language films, and I went in an attempt to improve my Russian comprehension.

This is exactly right. The “virus” panic and fear campaign has been inflamed from the start. Even such a sceptic —sometimes cynic— as me was affected a little at first.
Australia: now a police fear-state…
From the mouths of, er, babes?
Britain’s toytown police state in actual operation:
About half a dozen rounds should cover the immediate problem…
We are living in a society where the most privileged are actually fomenting events: encouraging minor uprisings, by the blacks and others, and preparing to impose a real police state to replace the “toytown” one which has been disguised as anti-“virus” measures. Don’t imagine that voting, in a completely rigged game, or tweeting, or blogging (for that matter) is going to get you anywhere, still less create a better white northern European society.
I wonder how long it will be before the public (and, it seems, government) understand that, in the absence of cure, vaccine or removal of the conditions that spawned it (as with Yellow Fever and mosquitos), you cannot actually stop or wipe out a disease, or a virus, by means of measures such as shutting down shops, stopping people from socializing, preventing travel, making the population wear facemasks or muzzles etc. Maybe never.
The most that can be done is to delay the “wave”. In the UK, that would have involved stopping most incoming flights, quarantining the few passengers arriving, closing pubs, nightclubs and any crowded gatherings such as race meetings. Also, preventing more than a small number of people getting onto buses and Underground/Overground trains. I am talking here about what should have been done back in March or April of this year.
Instead of the above, the government of Boris-idiot closed down much of the economy, propped up much of the rest with vast amounts of borrowed money, and trashed civil rights in the process.
Now we see that this government of (sinister) clowns has insisted that the public wear (probably useless or even dangerous) facemasks to shops (though not in offices or in pubs!), and seems intent on continuing the “fear” propaganda despite the damage which it continues to do to the UK economy.
The fact is that what has happened is that “the virus” is still around, here and there, people continue to get it, most of those people have no or few symptoms (and so are only discovered via useless testing), and the few who do have serious symptoms and so need medical intervention (there is no “treatment”, amounting to “cure”, as such) are taken to hospital anyway.
This is a condition which actually affects, in any serious way, a very small part of the population, perhaps 1%, and which kills far fewer. Indeed, most of those most affected by it and in real danger of death have already been killed by the virus, often sent to their deaths by the government and NHS managers, who wanted to protect NHS staff and some patients, and so shoved the most vulnerable, including patients actually infected, to the very places where more deaths would be caused readily— care homes.
In the times of Stalin, the “experts” and ministers responsible would have been shot.
What has to happen now is that everything has to open up, the economy and society has to start functioning again, and the facemask nonsense has to be done away with. If the Government etc are unwilling to do that, they are either incompetent or malicious, or both.
“Millions of overs 50s could be given orders to stay at home as part of Boris Johnson‘s ‘nuclear plans’ to avoid another national lockdown.” [Daily Mail]
The latest statistics show 4,000 infections per day, but well under 100 deaths per day (yesterday 74, the day before 10, I think; these figures inflated anyway) from or with “the virus”.
It seems that, at present, 1 person dies for every 80-400 persons known to be infected. Many are infected but show no symptoms, so the real figure for the death rate (even taking the deaths figure as accurate) may be 1 death per 5,000 or even 10,000 infected.
It does not surprise me that the ludicrously misnamed SAGE committee (I prefer DUMB— Department Under Matt and Boris) is worried about public disorder. Incidentally, it it their job or their business to worry about that aspect? I think not. I suppose that that is what happens when proper government and administration is replaced by dystopian nonsense from people like Dominic Cummings.
I (like the “Government”) have been surprised to see how compliant and easy to scare and corral and order about the British people have been, but there is (probably) a limit.
The idea that the clown currently posing as Prime Minister can “order” anyone over 50 to “stay home” in a form of house arrest for months, or even years, is absurd. Even leaving aside the legalities, how would that even be enforced?
We have seen how compliant the rabbits of the UK are, but such a measure would certainly be unenforceable. For one thing, there are many who, though over 50, and even over 60 (like me) do not —on a good day!— look over 50. The police cannot check everyone’s age and, in the UK, people do not have to carry any ID or age papers, legally. So will the Handmaid’s Tale militia now used by supermarkets be checking passports at the door? This is unbelievable!
I shall, if such an “order” is ever given, be “49” for the duration, just like an ageing Hollywood actress.
In any case, I doubt whether many shops would actually enforce an “under-50s only” policy, firstly because that would wipe out half their trade (and many would buy as little as possible online to punish those retailers); secondly, such a policy by shops would surely be contra “equalities” laws, though admittedly that was never my area of expertise when I was at the Bar.
The “Government” (of clowns) has painted itself into a corner. Instead of taking sensible and limited measures early, such as stopping most inward flights, shooting “refugees” (migrant-invaders) in the Channel, closing pubs, nightclubs and crowded sporting and other events for the duration or at least for a few months, and stopping the Underground, other train services and other public transport, the idiots ordered the “lockdown” (shutdown of the economy). Result? A collapsing economy and little effect on “the virus”.
The next “policy” made up on the spur of the moment has been the facemask nonsense. “Holland’s top scientists said there’s no solid evidence coverings work and warn they could even damage the fight against Covid-19” [Daily Mail, 2 August 2020]
“Kate Nicholls, of Hospitality UK, which represents pubs, restaurants and hotels, said shutting down ‘large chunks of the economy’ was a short-sighted strategy.
‘We need to be focusing on collective efforts to drive down and control infections,’ she said, adding that the hospitality industry directly employs 3.2 million, with another two million reliant through supply chains. ‘It’s simply too big to just switch off.
‘We would be talking about millions of people unemployed, a major loss of economic activity.‘” [Daily Mail]
One problem is that the people giving the ludicrous “orders” are people who have never actually run anything much, starting with part-Jew public entertainer Boris-idiot; then we have little Matt Hancock (did a year or so as a graduate teaboy at the Bank of England), Gavin Williamson (once a fireplace salesman with a pet spider), Dominic Cummings (tried to set up an airline in Russia 25 years ago; it failed after one flight); and let’s not forget the ivory tower merchants, Chris Whitty and idiotic Professor Ferguson (who said that 800,000 would die in the UK, and who broke his own rules by letting his married “ho” visit him during “lockdown”).
What a bunch of clowns! And we the people are expected to obey their confused and quite possibly unlawful decrees? Screw that.

Of course, not only the police, the Security Service etc know the identity, but also most MPs and many if not most journalists at the national level.
The mask is really coming off now. The “English gent” persona carefully crafted by Johnson since he was about 12 is now being replaced by the part-Jew, part-Turk charlatan playing the despot. That comes naturally to him. Johnson after all is not really English. As said, a part-Jew, part-Turk, born in New York City, brought up in the USA and Belgium until sent to Eton and Oxford to acquire the fake “English toff” persona (mask). Hard to say whether his patent inability to actually be an effective Prime Minister is an aggravating factor or a blessing in disguise.
Without going into the rights and wrongs, on the face of it this is more than a disturbing report about one particular case. It seems to show the way the police are going in the UK. Only 2 months ago, persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz had her bedroom invaded quite early in the morning by a whole crowd of (mostly non-white) police “officers”.
The “police state” in the UK may be a “toytown” one at present, usually, but it is clear where this is going.
Bars and pubs are the most likely places in which to transmit or get infected by “the virus”, so what does the government of clowns order? Pubs and bars can stay open and the customers can sit, drink, talk, shout or whatever without the requirement to wear a facemask or muzzle; but go next door to the supermarket and it’s “facemasks on or else!”. When did Britain become a country of scared unthinking rabbits ruled by clowns? I supposed that, like the Fall of the Roman Empire, it happened bit by bit, and almost unnoticed.
Imagine, a little pissant like Robert Jenrick posing as a Cabinet minister! Then again, Boris-idiot as Prime Minister…This whole situation veers between tragedy and farce.
As usual, unsurprising. A government of clowns, and an official Opposition which weakly supports (with mild carping) whatever the clowns are doing. Result? In a situation where the polled are asked which of the “main parties” (in which select group is included, ludicrously, the all-but-dead LibDem party) they support, people just say one or the other of Con or Lab, without conviction, without interest, despising both almost equally.
Poachers must be sought out and killed off. Their bases as well.
I do not know whether Dan Hodges ever “sold out” (as Corbyn supporters claim), because I have no idea whether he ever had any real political beliefs or principles before he started to doormat for the Jewish lobby and the Conservative Party. All that can be said is that the article above is as fine a piece of sycophantic rubbish as I have seen for many a day. In fact, the tweet accompanying it hits the spot better.
We never know what will happen in life. “Prepping” may not be as silly as many imagine…
I wonder whether many people would have imagined, say a year ago, that the UK government would shut down much of the economy, tell most people to stay at home unless shopping, and have the police going around harassing lone sunbathers on beaches, and elderly couples walking on the fells of the Peak District? Or that the entire population would be told to wear facemasks in shops etc, though not in pubs? Or on trains and buses, but not in offices?
Likewise, who would have thought, a year ago, that so-called “refugees” would be escorted across the Channel and put up in 4-star hotels (and given money on top) by the tough-talking “Conservative” government? Or that those detained ready to be deported would all be released?! Not many, I think.
How many of the over-50s, who were the ones that mainly voted “Conservative” in 2019, would have thought then that their being put under house arrest indefinitely would be a subject for serious discussion by the very government they had voted into unmerited office? Not many, I think.
So Tui is going to close down 166 travel agency shops. I suppose that that must add up to about 1,000 people losing their jobs. Tui is owned mainly by a Russian; for once a real one, not a Jew, but that has not improved his behaviour. He is supposedly worth USD $20 billion, and is the 4th-richest individual in Russia, yet in 2001, when already a billionaire, was paying only $600 a month to keep his ex-wife and their son alive…
Few in Russia would want the old Soviet system back, particularly the unfree sneaking and spying system run by the KGB (mainly the Second Chief Directorate), but the present system of oligarchy and near kleptocracy cannot last forever. Too many inequalities and, worse, too many inequities.
Of course, Tui closing its doors (only the offline ones) is not really a function of the Russian economy but solely of the UK one, meaning the mad “lockdown” shutdown.

Yes. We are all used (in theory) to the idea of the “police state”, in which the state, and/or a dictator, tyrant, despot or fanatical political party imposes rule by force and penal laws.
What is so diabolically cunning about the present situation is that the public has in effect been scammed; fear has been weaponized. Not fear of the State or the police or the law, but of “the virus”. A fairly serious public health problem has been blown up into a deadly plague by which people will be killed.
Once the population internalized that fear, the other measures, such as police control, fines, social pressure, simply reinforced the feeling of social obedience or compliance.
The Charlottenburger Chaussee. There must be something like a hundred thousand there.
Just one “small” news story, one that did not get much reported in the national Press or on TV news…
“Niels de Vos, chair of the trust, said: “Since April a large proportion of our staff have been furloughed and with this scheme coming to an end, we sadly can’t save everyone’s jobs. Only when visitor numbers and spend return to pre-coronavirus levels will our business model break even again.”
Visitor numbers will never return to pre-panic levels while those visitors are forced to wear facemasks. Forget it.
I wonder how many other “small” stories, unreported stories, there are right now, stories about 100, 200 or however many people losing their jobs, unable soon to pay rents, make mortgage payments etc… and mainly because of the present government’s panicked reaction to the “Coronavirus.
10 deaths (from or with “the virus”) out of 65 to 70 MILLION people…
The BBC has just reported that about 16 million people worldwide are thought to have been infected with (almost all not died with) Coronavirus since the scare started. That is about 1 person out of every 500. Not died from or with; been infected with. The death rate overall (which has varied wildly from country to country) seems to be around 2% of those infected. So, on that basis, 1 person out of every 25,000 people in the world has died with (partly from?) “the virus”, so far.

That tweeter, “@CanuckUK”, personifies the mentally unstable type that goes around masked even when the law —supposed “law”; it may not be lawful (valid), in fact— does not require it. I even saw a photo from a few months ago showing some stupid woman wearing full barrier-nursing kit: swathed in plastic from head to foot! What was she doing that required such protection? Working in an intensive care ward? No. Shopping in what looked like Oxford Street!
Boris-idiot and his latest idiocies
Boris-idiot (that clown presently posing as Prime Minister of the UK) has just announced more stupid policies and proposed laws. For one thing, he and his ministers have imposed a quarantine on visitors from Spain (and that includes returning Brit holidaymakers). Result? Apart from misery and inconvenience for those presently there on holiday or booked to go there, the likely collapse of the package holiday and airline industries.
I have to say that I find it odd that anyone actually wants to holiday in Spain at present. The “lockdown” and facemask nonsense has been far stricter in Spain than in the UK (which makes one wonder why Spain has had a “surge” in cases anyway, in view of the months of facemask muzzle-wearing and strict “lockdown”…We are told that such measures prevent such surges…).
I hear that in Spain, at present, a visit to a restaurant means wearing a facemask even at the table unless actually eating! I view the whole idea as somewhere between Monty Python and the Twilight Zone. Suffice to say that I shall not be going to Spain or anywhere else under such conditions. I doubt that I am alone in this. Then quarantine for 2 weeks on return? Forget it.
Who now will book a holiday or trip anywhere? The crowd of clowns posing as a government in the UK (backed by their “experts”— you remember, those medics and scientists who said that 800,000 might die in the UK…) are quite likely, soon, to quarantine arrivals from other countries as well, not just Spain.
About 90,000 people work for UK-based airlines; about 77,000 work for travel agencies, tour companies etc. There are still over 4,000 travel agency shops in the UK.
I wonder what the figures will be in 2021 and 2022?
Reverting to Boris-idiot’s government, little Matt Hancock has announced new health measures in respect of obesity. Certainly a serious issue (in fact, I could stand losing a few stone myself!), but these measures are either underwhelming or silly.
For example, restaurants will be compelled to have the calorie-count of each dish marked on the menu. That might work for businesses where the menus never or hardly ever change, such as fish and chip shops, McDonald’s etc, but in a restaurant with a changing menu, it places a huge burden (and so cost) on the restaurant.
I can see most restaurants closing down: fewer customers, more costs, less profit…Same with pubs.
These measures (laid down by Boris-idiot and his crew) show the clear signs of having come from people who really have little knowledge or understanding of how people think, of how businesses work (and that does include Indian “clever boy” Rishi Sunak), or of how to dig themselves out of the hole into which they have dug the UK.
I always said, from when the “virus” scare started, that there would not be a “V”-shaped recovery, but something like an “L”-shaped non-recovery. The “experts” mostly disagreed (then) but I feel even more certain that the economy is about to tank. The facemask nonsense just adds an extra burden.

USA. UK. Two very different countries, but with some similar trends and problems. I have lived in the USA, long ago, and am legally qualified there (Bar of the State of New York), but my main focus is the UK.
Looking at the UK, it is clear that there is really no functioning “democracy” worthy of the name (nor a population capable of sustaining one). All the trends that I see point toward an eventual culture war, which might become a kind of civil war.
Seems that most aggressive Jews and their dupes or slaves have decided to boycott Twitter for 48 hours. The air seems fresher already!
Incidentally, I notice that one such boycotter is Layla Moran, the buck-toothed lesbian (she prefers “pansexual”) who is the latest leader of the fading LibDem rump.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Layla_Moran.
What makes Layla Moran’s kow-towing noteworthy is that she is half-Palestinian.
[update: same day: a reader of this blog corrects me to say that Layla Moran is not yet LibDem leader. Quite right. My mistake. She is only the candidate most likely to win at present. What does it say about the LibDems, though, that it has taken them 7 or 8 months to elect a leader and yet are still not there? Pathetic rabble.]
The meaning of numbers
We are hearing about upsurges in Coronavirus. These are being used to justify police-state measures in the UK and elsewhere. Strange times. The “upsurge” is entirely (certainly entirely in Europe) because testing is being done now on a fairly wide scale.
Yes, more people are now “officially” infected, simply because more people are being tested. Many show no symptoms; most, in fact, require no treatment; none, or almost none, will die or even become seriously unwell.
The actual number of deaths from (or even with) Coronavirus is dropping not only in the UK but worldwide. In the UK it is now down at or below 10 individuals per day, even on the basis that anyone dying with Coronavirus is deemed to die of Coronavirus.
Despite the above, BBC Today Programme and other shows preferred not to focus on the fact that the death rate is close to zero. Oh no, their choice was to feature some Scottish pilot who was hospitalized while flying for an airline in Vietnam!
The said Scottish pilot was the only patient in Vietnam likely to die of/with Coronavirus. and the Vietnamese were desperate to save him, and did. He was unlucky to have become infected, but the fact is that the unfortunate fellow is a statistical freak. He is now slowly recovering in the UK.
The BBC used the above case to claim (as did the unfortunate pilot) that Coronavirus is a huge threat to everyone, whereas it can be seen that that Scottish pilot was a one in a million or one in a hundred thousand statistical anomaly.
English schools— the Great Replacement
34% of primary school pupils in England are now from an “ethnic minority” (the vast majority non-white). Scroll on 39 years. What then? 50%? More?
This is the “Great Replacement”, or “White Genocide” if you like. Most MPs, msm drones, others too, are evil criminals who have deliberately caused this existential crisis.
We in the UK are now living under a repressive “elected” dictatorship. That would be bad enough were that all it is; however, it is also incompetent, and to a degree hard to believe even after the experience of the past 10 years.
The shutting-down of freedom of expression
“Tartan Pakistani” shutting down freedom of expression in Scotland:
It can easily be seen that this whole “Coronavirus” thing (more precisely, the government’s “lockdown” shutdown) has destroyed ordinary radical or social-national political life. Political meetings, even small ones, are effectively banned, as are the traditional means of spreading a message, such as rallies and demonstrations (though the System has accommodated the nonsense of the “Black Lives Matter” swine).
In fact, the latest “measures” from the government of Boris-idiot give even local authorities the power to shut down whole tracts of the country and whole cities on “health” grounds. Don’t tell me that such powers cannot be and will not be abused.
To quote the Bard, “Aye, there’s the rub”…even I was surprised at the zeal and relish with which Britain’s mostly rather ineffective toytown police took to their new role as bulliers of lone sunbathers, solitary swimmers and retired couples walking their dogs on beaches or in national parks.
The barking of “orders” through megaphones from inside police jeeps and helicopters, the deliberate polluting of a Derbyshire “blue lagoon” (to deter visitors), the drones following elderly fell-walkers so that the real “Covidiots”, the police, might then “shame” (as the police thought in their little brains) those walkers by having the footage posted on Twitter or Facebook.
The present government may be one composed of idiots but, thanks to an 80-seat majority in the Commons (and the absence of any effective Opposition there), the Government rules supreme. Indeed, there is more dissent from disenchanted Conservative Party people than there is from Keir Starmer’s joke “Labour” official Opposition (Jewish lobby Potemkin village), which merely supports the Government and tries to put a gloss on whatever that government orders.
Analysis, propaganda, and reasoned argument are all very well (and I engage that way myself, mainly now via this blog) but in the end, I think that we know that Europe is not going to be saved by such methods, however necessary and inescapable they are.
What is “democracy”? Is it —whatever it is— a good thing? I discussed these questions in a blog article about 18 months ago.
