Repression of freedom of expression intensifies in the UK

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

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

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

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

But its new regulations go far beyond that.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A few of my own experiences of repression in recent years: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

Meanwhile…

Corona secret state…

So much for “liberal” Canada!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sign of the times

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9112749/Sisters-heartbreaking-pledge-13-year-old-brother-stabbed-death-park.html

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

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

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

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

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

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

An unusual tweet. As for the weapon in the righthand photo, if I am not mistaken, that is a Roman short sword [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gladius#Pompeii_gladius].

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

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

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

Diary Blog, 3 November 2020, including thoughts about the party-political consequences of Government-Opposition convergence

Party-political aspects of the “lockdown”/shutdown nonsense

I commented a while ago, and also not long after the unmerited Conservative Party “victory” in 2019, that in the absence of a viable official Opposition, any real opposition to the Boris-idiot government would come from within the Conservative Party itself. That has turned out to be the case. In the vote (scheduled for tomorrow) to approve the latest crazy “lockdown”, 80+ Conservative Party MPs are set to vote against, with others abstaining. The Labour Party, though, has stepped into the breach to support the Government!

In fact, Labour’s only “opposition” is to say, “Boris should have done it earlier, harsher, and better-run“… That’s not much of an Opposition…

In the absence of a decent Government and a decent Opposition, we see not only the rebellion of many Conservative Party MPs, but a vacuum opening up. That applies not only to policy and action around “the virus”, but also in other areas: immigration, migration-invasion, illegal immigrants motoring over from France with little to stop them; other areas too: work and pay, pensions.

The Government and Opposition are just too cosy now, both headed by members of Friends of Israel organizations.

The egregious Nigel Farage has, like the businessman he is, “spotted a gap in the [political] market” and, despite having stabbed his own followers in the back twice before (with UKIP and then Brexit Party), now has applied (yes, in our “free” country, you now have to “apply”…) to form a new party, Reform Party.

I wonder how many angry and/or discontented people will grasp at the latest Farage straw? Controlled opposition.

There is an opportunity for a real social-national movement and party (both movement and, within that, party) in the UK, but a suitable vehicle does not as yet exist, despite valiant attempts now, notably by Patriotic Alternative under Mark Collett and Laura Towler.

The fact that major banks have told both Collett and Laura Towler that their accounts are to be closed, I take as a hopeful sign for them. It indicates that “PA” is starting to resonate.

The withdrawal of banking services —for socio-political reasons— may not be quite the “no man might buy or sell” unless having the mark and number of the Beast (in the Revelation of St. John), but it does seem to be a step or two down that road.

The storm clouds are gathering.

“Lockdown”, the Coronavirus situation generally, mishandled Brexit, migration-invasion, “black lives matter” vandalism and disorder, people pushing back against the Jewish lobby, the economy sliding fast.

The ravens of Odin sense a coming battle and a coming victory.

I agree with much of the letter, though.

I am glad to see that almost everyone has now come round to my view, expressed for years, that far from being a strong leader, “Boris” is as weak as weak could be in almost all ways.

Diary Blog, 12 October 2020, including thoughts about the police and Darren Grimes

Coronavirus

Well, there it is: yesterday, nearly 13,000 known “cases”, yet only 65 deaths. About 1 death for every 200 “cases”. Most people are not even tested, so that must mean about 1 death for every 1,000, 2,000 or more people in the UK.

The Government of Clowns is shutting down great swathes of the country (again) for almost nothing.

Britain’s toytown police state flexes its muscles again

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/10/11/dame-cressida-dick-facing-questions-politically-motivated-investigation/; https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/darren-grimes-david-starkey-police-c69gf98f0; https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8827383/SARAH-VINE-Police-investigate-journalists-like-Darren-Grimes-asking-questions.html

I am reposting, below, tweets from little Darren Grimes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darren_Grimes], despite the fact that he and his “libertarian” friends have never once said a word in defence of, inter alia, me, Alison Chabloz (who is still being both persecuted and prosecuted for singing songs and for taking part in an Internet “radio” discussion!), or Jez Turner of the London Forum (persecuted by a pack of Zionist Jews who then leant on the CPS to prosecute him— he spent 6 months of a one year sentence in prison, for making a single short speech in public).

My own experiences? Here are a couple: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/; and https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/.

So here are those tweets:

Ecce! The “Free Speech Union” (the usual “libertarian” crowd, Delingpole, Toby Young etc), and LBC radio talking head Iain Dale all decry the misuse of police powers to repress Grimes’ free speech. Fine, but where were those hypocritical bastards when I was under attack? Skulking, afraid of the Jew lobby, that’s where!

They never defended my rights, never defended Alison Chaboz, never defended Jez Turner or others who have been repressed by police and prosecutors suborned by the Jew-Zionist lobby.

Still, here I am defending this individual’s rights. #MoralHighGround…

Incidentally, I see that the Daily Mail article above is written by Sarah Vine, the wife of Michael Gove [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Gove]. One of the (in the end, five) tweets that resulted in my 2016 disbarment was that describing Gove (entirely accurately) as a “pro-Jew, pro-Israel, expenses cheat“. Despite those words being entirely truthful, they were held at Tribunal to be “grossly offensive”! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Gove#Controversies.

I, like the public in general, was unaware until last year that Gove is or was also both a cocaine-abuser and a pisshead who even appears dead drunk in the Chamber of the House of Commons! The video of Gove thus staggeringly drunk and/or drugged is now “unavailable” on YouTube… https://telescoper.wordpress.com/2019/09/28/a-drunk-and-disorderly-brexit/; https://evolvepolitics.com/watch-michael-gove-accused-of-being-drunk-or-on-drugs-as-he-sways-and-stumbles-during-crucial-commons-debate/

The shrivelled little bastard can be seen here, though: https://vimeo.com/430725285

Nonetheless, Sarah Vine’s article is worth reading: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8827383/SARAH-VINE-Police-investigate-journalists-like-Darren-Grimes-asking-questions.html

Below, a typical tweeter who supports free speech (he says) yet seems rather naive to say the least—for a lecturer in politics (even at secondary school level): http://www.adrianhilton.com/index.php/sample-page/.

Support people like Alison Chabloz, like Jez Turner, and like me! Overseas, other persecuted people too, such as Ursula Haverbeck! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ursula_Haverbeck

Darren Grimes is perhaps not sufficiently aware to know that it was the Jew-Zionist lobby that started this fairly recent trend of “lawfare”, meaning the abuse of badly-drafted laws to repress opinions of which that Jew lobby disapproves. The most obvious example of a badly-drafted law is the Communications Act 2003, s.127.

Jews are fond of saying that “repression may start with the Jews but rarely finishes with them“. It seems to be true, but not in the way “they” mean. They themselves started this attack on free speech, but it is not the Jewish population that suffers from it.

Oh, and right on cue (see below) comes Karl Turner MP [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Turner_(British_politician)], the sort of muddle-head who thinks that he is being terribly clever for saying “freedom of expression does not mean freedom from consequences“, a phrase which could be applied to Stalin’s Russia or Mao’s China.

The same kind of deadhead thinking is often tweeted by one Paul Bernal, a law lecturer at the University of East Anglia.

In fact, looking at Karl Turner’s Wikipedia entry, he looks like a suitable candidate for my Deadhead MPs series…

On the face of it, Identity England seems to be a commendable and worthwhile organization, though I do not know much about it as yet (and cannot read their material on the Telegram platform because I am not signed up to that or to Facebook).

So the BBC pays some ignorant Northern Irish slug to harass members of the public. Quelle surprise. This is him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Nolan, though the main photo seems to be a decade or more out of date.

That Nolan person (of whom I had never heard until today), seems to be unaware that not everyone has to wear a facemask muzzle even under the (probably legally invalid) government “rules”…

The BBC must be demolished, rubbed out, replaced.

Interesting. Last year? It’s almost as if some in the Government knew that there would be a Coronavirus “crisis”…Google “Great Reset” and/or “Great Replacement”…

The problem is that a huge number of people who want to be taken seriously have a huge amount of emotional capital invested in the fear propaganda, the facemask nonsense, the “lockdown” stupidity, the “clap for the NHS” nonsense (remember that? Idiots standing and clapping to order?). Not just the Government of Clowns; also the Twitterati (most of them), the pseudo-socialists etc. The facts are plainly against them, but all they (really) want to do is control what others do and say, or even think. The facemask muzzling is symbolic of that tendency.

I would rather trust Soviet TV, if it still existed, than today’s BBC.

Peter Hitchens “fears” that that might happen (the “thought police” visiting dissidents)?!

…and don’t I know it!

It is a good list.

“There is no getting around the fact that Europe is in absolute decline.”

The continent’s long-stagnating economy is perched at the edge of a precipice. The Covid-19 health crisis has morphed over these past six months into a severe recession, exacerbating long-established European economic fault lines. Already hard-pressed southern Europe is experiencing by far the worst of things, as the continent is rotting from within. The south grows ever more politically resentful, even as the north grows weary of bailing out its hapless European brethren. 

Vastly underreported, Europe’s moribund economy is presently entering a doom loop of deflation, with extremely limited weapons at its disposal to avoid the dreaded Japanification of the continent.”  [City AM magazine] https://www.cityam.com/almost-unnoticed-europe-hurtles-into-decline/

At last, an msm outlet with some sense.

Another important point. I see reports now from industries as diverse as hotels and construction, all starting to seriously consider increasing the use of robotics and allied technologies. Caterpillar is even adapting existing machines to no-driver operation.

So almost every business and economic sector now wants State “support”. How long can the house of cards keep standing?

What kind of bad joke is this?! Banana republic meets Ruritania! The Garden Bridge: FAILURE; Brexit: mishandled FAILURE. Incredible. When will the idiot scientists on “SAGE” [me version is DUMB— Department Under Matt and Boris] get gongs too? Next year probably…

Walls. Squads. End…

More about the Darren Grimes matter

The above thread (worth seeing) was about Keir Starmer’s refusal to support free speech. He of course is completely tied up with the Jew-Zionist lobby and the freemasons.

A tidal wave of “usual suspect” idiots are on Twitter today, not supporting free speech but socio-political repression. Look at the idiot below:

Nice to see that some people see the sheer stupidity of many of the “politically-correct”.

That Dom Dyer person is pretty thick. He used to block me and tweet against me. Incidentally, I favour protecting badgers; he ought to stick to that. He does not have the horsepower to think and discuss about these wider socio-political issues.

Ah…I see now why he is so exercized about “racism”…part-Jew and part Turkish-Cypriot [http://www.projects.law.manchester.ac.uk/religion-law-and-the-constitution/dominic-dyer/]

Frankly, I think that half the problems with Britain are connected with the fact that far too many people in high or significant positions are simply not intelligent or educated enough. You only have to look at the present pack of clowns posing as a government.

Here (below) is another unthinking one, a scribbler in the past for the Judenpresse/Lugenpresse, and in recent years editor of a holiday cruise magazine:

https://uk.linkedin.com/in/lizjarvis

She sounds brainwashed, probably when a school student. A former Blairite Labour Party member who is now a LibDem and thinks that she has “a political career”. A “comms” person too, among various business activities, her own website was set up a year or so ago but is still empty of content.

Those business activities seem to have crashed now:

Liz Jarvis stood for the LibDems at Southampton Itchen in 2019, but came a very poor third behind Con and Lab, getting a vote share of only 5.3%; that was a big improvement on the LibDems’ showing in both 2015 and 2017 (though well down on the 20%+ of 2010): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southampton_Itchen_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s

She looks pretty good, and seems to support some socially-good policies (eg Basic Income), but at the same time also seems to have no idea that one cannot create an advanced society with backward people…

If only more people like her were national as well as social (and also had an understanding of the importance of freedom of expression) …

Diary Blog, 4 April 2020

A very brief daily blog post today, mainly because I wrote an article about doomed Labour:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/05/04/labour-is-the-party-of-the-labour-is-the-party-for/

I was also interested to see that the Twitterati went mad today because a photograph of Michael Gove‘s bookshelves (rather less impressive than was my one-time library of 2,000+ books…) showed that he had a volume by that excellent and now-pilloried historian, David Irving, sitting there.

Well, regular readers will know what I think of Gove, that expenses cheat, fraud, drunk, cocaine abuser and (worst of all) doormat for Israel, but it makes me laugh to see him attacked by the pseudo-socialist “antifa” idiots (“useful idiots” for the Jew-Zionist lobby)!

Some of those idiots really are (far more than the Germans of the 1930s ever were) the bookburners of our times. What is shocking, though, is that some are well-known journalists, other scribblers, established academics etc. All commending censorship…

I shall probably blog about all that (and witchfinder-general Owen Jones, the fake “revolutionary” and “System-licensed Bolshevik”) another time; maybe soon, but not today. In any case, I have previously blogged about Owen Jones: https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/01/04/a-brief-word-about-owen-jones/

Coronavirus

268 deaths in the UK “from” or “with” Coronavirus today, a huge fall. The government of fools has made a huge mistake in putting the population under house arrest.

What almost interests me more is how very supine and compliant most of “my fellow citizens” (I prefer to think of them as obedient rabbits) have been and continue to be. They might, the more disorderly of them, have a drunken fight or catfight (in “normal” times) on a Friday night, but when push comes to crunch there they are, the rabbits, all lining up 6 feet apart to buy bread and milk, and only going out at all when the toytown police give them the nod. Pathetic.

In related news, the London “Nightingale” instant hospital has been “stood down”, having only received a few dozen patients out of the 4,000 expected. The other similar hospitals across the country have also been closed or are being closed; some never opened at all!

The Boris-idiot government is now going to pretend to be still somehow in control, which it very obviously is not. Before long, there will be an effective lifting of the “lockdown”, but disguised by pointless “testing”, by fake “trial runs” in places that don’t matter very much, like the Isle of Wight, etc.

Meanwhile, the UK economy is spinning into a terminal decline. Worse, the plebs (including affluent suburbanites and “country”-dwellers, by the way) have been scared out of their skins, and actually are now afraid to leave their houses! Except to clap on command (“for the NHS” which, for whatever reason, is now very far from offering the best medical service in Europe).

Jesus Christ! These are the descendants, 80% of them anyway, of the contemporaries of Nelson, Wellington, Drake, Hood…

******* sad.

Stray thought

The more I see of those who rule, or pretend to rule, the UK, as well as those who pretend to comment intelligently on various current affairs, the more I realize that I, and people who agree with me, should be seated at the head of those affairs.

I agree with both tweets above.

End “lockdown” now

What the government needs to do is to end the “lockdown”, right now, but also to keep advising people strongly, via the msm, re. washing hands (the only really effective way to prevent getting the virus) and reasonable social distancing (i.e. in particular avoiding crowded places and/or places where there are hot and excited people).

Michael Gove

Michael Gove, the pro-Israel, pro-Jewish lobby careerist MP and now Cabinet minister, is in the news again. It will be recalled that he was an expenses cheat in the 2005-2010 Parliament, to the extent that he was lucky not to be prosecuted for fraud. He is also a (supposedly former) cocaine abuser and drunk, who was also filmed in 2019, in the Chambers of the House of Commons, either dead drunk or drugged.

https://evolvepolitics.com/watch-michael-gove-accused-of-being-drunk-or-on-drugs-as-he-sways-and-stumbles-during-crucial-commons-debate/

Gove has a Jewish wife, Sarah Vine, who is a Daily Mail scribbler:

She is thought to come from a wealthy background and, although it is difficult to find out what her parents did, at the time of her marriage to Gove in 2001, they were resident in Monte Carlo. The wedding was at the beautiful village of Vence in the south of France and the reception was held at a local chateau.” [The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jul/02/sarah-vine-daily-mail-columnist-and-driving-force-behind-goves-pm-dream

It was a tweet about Gove which was one of five tweets (yes, that’s right, only 5 out of 150,000+) that got me disbarred in 2016, at the instigation of a pack of Jews: see https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/ , or google “Ian Millard barrister” for a one-sided msm view. Now, my tweet about Gove can be seen to have been obviously true (as were the other 4). At that time, Gove had not yet been exposed as a “cokehead”, just as a fraudster, embezzler, doormat for Jews and Israel, and a backstairs manipulator.

The emerging British toytown police state

It strikes me that, in most revolutions (in their uncontrolled “street” phase), it is not the intellectuals, not the ideologues, not the “responsible” trade unionists or the faux-revolutionary newspaper scribblers and TV talking heads who are the first to take to the barricades, but the delinquent youths and the —to use the contemporary colloquialism—  the “totally pissed-off— who do so. They are the ones who assault the police, hang the HVO secret police (Hungary 1956) , burn down the headquarters of the local Stasi and destroy its files (East Germany/DDR 1989) and who create the conditions for an actual revolution going beyond mere temporary upheaval.

Who are those who are “ignoring the rules” of toytown dystopian Britain in 2020? Not the bloggers, not the journalists (not even the dissident ones), not the pesudo-religious priests, priestesses and other frauds. No, we see that it is the youth, or part of it, plus a hard core of people willing to think for themselves and show themselves unafraid of the state, as well as (whisper it) the blacks and other non-Europeans in the UK (who have no thought for the principles of liberty, but who just want the practical or actual freedom to go to parks, play football on Brighton beach etc).

There is no revolution happening in Britain. Not yet, anyway. However, I notice that the young are the ones mostly ignoring the new repressive law and the police-invented “rules” taken from Government ministers’ mere wishes.

My local online newspaper reports that the police have, inter alia, tried to apprehend 7 youths fishing. My God, fishing! What devilment is this?! In fact, “when the officers arrived, the youths ran off“. Meanwhile, in other evil, police were called to a beach where youths had been reported to be using a jetski. My God, don’t they understand that they could be “spreading Coronavirus“, “literally killing people“, and “destroying the NHS“?

Well, no, actually. Because they are not. This pathetic poundland police state-ism is driving even me up the wall. Fishing in small groups (people who already know each other anyway), or using a jetski on the sea (much as I dislike jetskis) are not behaviours with the slightest chance of spreading this bloody Chinese virus.

In fact, the police were out of luck with the jetski “criminals” too, because it appears that, “by the time officers arrived, the youths and the jetski had gone, but officers found the remains of a barbecue on the beach.” A barbecue? The bastards!

Joking aside, what does it take for “Middle England” (let alone the brainwashed plebs) to defend what little is left of their liberties and civil rights?

Actually, my impression is that the vast bulk of the British people have sold their soul not for fame, money (in any large quantity), or other of the usual inducements. No. Just chuck them a family-pack of loo paper, some dried pasta, and a bottle of booze. That’s them sorted…and goodbye all the fine words about “democracy”, “a society under law” (nb. “law“, not laws“), “freedom”, “civil rights”, “human rights” etc.

I don’t want to hear any more about the (large fake anyway) “wartime spirit”, “Dunkirk spirit”, “Blitz spirit” etc, and how “we” fought “tyranny” (as propaganda had it in WW2 and, germinally, for several years beforehand, as well as since).

We see the 100-y-o ex-officer raising £20M or more for the NHS, and he is quite rightly being honoured. Having said that, why does a National Health Service need to have monies raised for it by ad hoc crowdfunding? The fact is that the NHS has been both underfunded and, at least equally important, maladministered for years, even decades. In the past decade, vast sums have been shaven off NHS budgets and, since 2017, nurses have had their pay frozen.

Will the £20M-£30M raised be properly deployed or applied? Come to that, I wonder whether that 100-year-old ex-officer himself voted Conservative in 2010, 2015, 2017 or 2019??

More tweets about the current madness

Yes, the virus has killed a significant number of people, but the expected mass onslaught of deaths has not arrived. The NHS has a huge number of empty beds for the time of year. The mortality figures show a confused picture, not least because it is not clear how the authorities decide who is and who is not recorded as a Covid-19 death.” [Peter Hitchens, in the Daily Mail]

Coronavirus

Re. our medical and scientific progress, look at this news item from 1918, prior to the arrival in New York of the worldwide “Spanish Flu”, which eventually killed millions.

“Soap and water” (and “fresh air”). Progress? What progress?

China

Conspiracy theories aside, we should not let China off the hook as far as this ghastly virus event and siruation is concerned. For years, decades, China has been destroying the wildlife of the planet, and brutally mistreating animals in China itself. The Coronavirus “COVID-19” is said to have started in a “seafood market” in Wuhan where not only were live animals (including dogs and cats) on sale, but where some were whipped or otherwise deliberately subjected to painful treatment before being killed. Some were (and in other parts of China are) being boiled alive.

China may be impressive in some ways, both in terms of its history and its technological and allied activity today, but in other ways it is very very backward. The Coronavirus situation is the fault of China. Now it appears that the Chinese official response in Wuhan may have saved the Chinese from suffering more, but misled the West as to the peril faced by reason of the virus.

In both world wars, there were consequences, rightly or wrongly, for the losing side. Reparations were demanded. Are there to be no consequences for a China which has plunged the rest of the world into turmoil?

Present situation

Image

The above graph shows deaths, not all confirmed cases, but is interesting in that the surveys done in previous years re. personal hygiene in various countries showed that the least hygienic countries of Europe in terms of handwashing etc were…wait for it…Italy, then Spain, then France and Netherlands…

Washing hands frequently with soap and water really is by far the best way to protect yourself from Coronavirus, in fact almost the only way, followed by avoidance of places where crowds of people are hot, excited and active.

Light relief

Watched an episode of the property show Place in the Sun, filmed several years ago in and around Lucca, in Tuscany. What made me shake head is that there were the potential buyers, a couple from Rotherham (South Yorkshire), eager to buy a holiday home and perhaps a place to which (in about 10-20 years) they might retire, but they had obviously not really thought through the matter..

The potential buyers had visited Lucca a number of times, but there was no indication that they spoke Italian, beyond the usual cafe phrases. It is one thing to visit a country, quite another to live there and perhaps be fully domiciled there. A visit to the USA will probably be pleasant and untaxing; living there is something else entirely, despite the (supposedly) common language. The same is true of many parts of the world.

Alok Sharma

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

Alok Sharma, Business Secretary, is the latest unfortunate member of the Cabinet to be put into the stocks to have rotten fruit and vegetables thrown at him. Twitter and even the msm have not been kind to him.

An Indian, born in Agra (where the Taj Mahal is situated), Sharma was educated partly at the same school as me: https://www.rbcs.org.uk/; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reading_Blue_Coat_School, but about a decade after I was there (there were no Indians there when I was a pupil, though I was slightly acquainted with two half-Indian brothers who attended and who in fact lived not very far from me).

Looks as if Sharma, like other Cabinet ministers in this joke of a government, is basically nbg (no bloody good)…

The natives are getting restless

It can be seen that, after three weeks of the mishandled “lockdown”, and despite general compliance, people are getting pretty fed up with it. They are being kept in line mainly by the constant propaganda, much of it untrue, or only partly true:

  • “anyone can get it” (true, but most people either do not get it, or are completely asymptomatic, and so unaware that they have been infected);
  • also, only a tiny handful under 20 or even 40 are both getting it and require medical attention for it;
  • only those over 60 are likely to require medical attention (there are, of course, always exceptions to every general rule);
  • only those over 70 who get it are likely to require hospitalization;
  • most people who are aware that they have the Coronavirus are mildly affected, mildly in that they require no medical attention and just a couple of weeks of rest (though of course it is unpleasant for them all the same);
  • the relative few (perhaps 1 person in every few hundred of the population) who do require medical attention in hospital are usually in and out of hospital in about 2 weeks;
  • so far, about 1 person out of every 8,000 of the general population has died with (though not necessarily of) Coronavirus.

The risible police activity around the “lockdown” has only slightly reinforced the main propaganda message, the puerile “Save lives/Save the NHS” stuff. In countries with still-properly-functioning public health systems (Germany, France etc) they do not use such kneejerk propaganda campaigns, but just do (and have the means to do) the job.

Luckily for the government, most of the population prefer not to think for themselves. If they did, they would realize that most people, and certainly those under 30, are at little risk of anything serious anyway. The “lockdown” would then not so much lock down as break down.

British housing conditions

Fears are growing that coronavirus could be ripping through some of the poorest and most overcrowded parts of Britain’s cities as new research suggests cramped living conditions might be accelerating the spread of the virus” [The Guardian]

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/12/virus-hitting-hardest-modern-equivalent-victorian-slums

Mass immigration is a big factor, and is often rejoiced in by “refugees welcome” idiots…

Here’s one of the most egregious of such idiots on Twitter:

Britain had about 50 or 55 million people living in it when I was born (1956). Now it is about 70 million. Far too many even in strict numerical terms, and an increasing proportion of the population is black, brown, other non-European, or of mixed race. What future does that give the white people of the UK (or the non-whites, in fact)?

Walid Alhusien with his wife and five children

[above: a non-European family living in one room in London. No good for them, no good for Britain’s future. The man delivers pizzas. Britain must move to a high-education, high-skillset national model. What use is it having a man delivering pizzas, his non-working wife looking after three —so far— children, the family dependent largely on State benefits?]

Economics

It had to happen: the time has come when I can agree on something with Matthew Parris:

So far, only a few msm creatures and talking heads have turned their minds and pens to what happens after Coronavirus. I have, though:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2020/03/29/when-coronavirus-is-over/

Peter Hitchens has been one of the few to think, so far:

Unfortunately, much of the public is basically unthinking. They are so brainwashed that they imagine that the “lockdown” is “saving lives, protecting the NHS” etc (which if true, is only marginally so), and that “everyone” must “Clap for the NHS”, North Korea-style. Actually, where I live, no-one seems to be clapping on command, though a couple of weeks ago, i.e. the first time the clapping was “ordered”, I did see one firework (a large rocket).

When one examines the economic damage done by “lockdown”, one is in the world of conjecture. However, only a few oddities have dared assert that “lockdown” (even so far) has not had a negative economic effect (if it did not have such an effect, we might as well keep most of the population on holiday most of the year!).

So let us say that the UK “lockdown” is ended in June, which seems to be the most likely time.

The “furlough” money paid to laid off workers will end in June, or at the end of June, as matters stand.

The UK private economic sector will be on its knees. Manufacturing will be at a low level. Many factories will not see activity again. The same is true of much of the existing retail sector. The employees in those areas of the economy will be made redundant in their millions.

Many msm/System talking heads and scribblers are opining that the economy will somehow “bounce back” in the Summer or Autumn. How would that work? Demand will remain low, both domestically and outside the UK, because few individual consumers will have both money to spend and the confidence to spend or invest.

There are about 5 million self-employed or freelance people in the UK now. Few are still working. After “lockdown” finishes, there may be only a slow uptick.

I foresee a very slow restart of economic life. In fact, if (when) government largesse (“furlough” money, business loans etc) ends, the economy may go into freefall, quite possible the pound’s exchange rate too. Millions will be officially unemployed or requiring “Universal Credit”.

There will possibly be a kind of 1930s-style “National Government”, either declared as such or de facto. It will become obvious that there is no real (approved) Opposition. Why else would the quasi-dictatorial Coronavirus Act be expressed as going to last for up to 2 years? During that time, Boris-idiot has the option of simply deferring elections! As far as general elections are concerned, that changes nothing, because the misnamed “Conservatives” have until 2024 anyway, but perhaps that Act will be renewed or “reincarnated”. Who knows…

Soon will be the right time to launch either a social-national party or a movement which may or may not contest the rigged System elections (my view is that “all roads lead to Rome”, so one should not dismiss a partly-electoral route out of hand).

Anything will become possible, in a UK where millions are unemployed, where businesses are failing right, left and centre, and where both Government and official Opposition are seen as complicit.

Something other than Coronavirus (from the days before viruses were weapons of war and/or politically causative…)

One of the better films of its type, bearing in mind the inevitable ideological bias in all such films.

[below, a quite interesting film about the German advance on Moscow in late 1941. Some footage that I had not seen. When I was driven past the place of furthest advance, about 14 miles NW of Moscow, in 1993, my young driver, Pasha, made it to (close to) the Kremlin in little more than 15 minutes. How close German forces came to taking Moscow in 1941! History would have been changed beyond recognition, as would the world we know today].

The “electoral road”?

Below, tweets from typical “antifa” idiots:

(I do not know about whom they tweet, neither does it matter)

Having said that “@antifashwitch” (Roanna Carleton-Taylor) does have a point, albeit not entirely accurate (as one would expect).

Tony Blair set up the Electoral Commission in 2001 with the aim of repressing democracy (whatever the reasons officially given). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_Commission_(United_Kingdom)

Martin Bell, the war reporter and one-term Independent MP for Tatton [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Bell], in a memoir, wrote that the 1998 Act of Parliament which required registration of parties contesting UK elections, which Act preceded the 2000 Act which established the Electoral Commission, was “profoundly undemocratic”.

The problem is not that a party will not be registered, but that later (meaning if the “wrong sort of party” finds electoral success), the Electoral Commission or other bodies will “find” cause to interfere with its campaigns and staff. The BNP, UKIP and now the Labour Party (via the “Equality and Human Rights Commission”) have all been targets.

“Democracy” in the UK is very limited once you dig beneath the surface. The funny thing is that the quasi-“socialist” types that used to be rather rebellious and anti-Establishment decades ago have given way to System slaves (slaves even in their own minds), begging the System to crack down on “fascists” and “Nazis” (i.e. people with whom they disagree politically).

All roads lead to Rome. A political party is good, but may only be part of a multi-headed movement.CFfvYYCXIAAkryu

MSM sycophancy

One example, arguably the most egregious, of the sycophantic scribblers in the contemporary popular prints: Dan Hodges, faux-proletarian, who lives with his family and mother, the famous actress and one-time Labour MP, Glenda Jackson, in a large house in not very proleterian Blackheath.

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

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

At one time, Hodges was supposedly a Labour Party (Blair-Labour) member and supporter. Now he writes for the Mail on Sunday and his sycophancy would not be out of place in Stalin’s Russia. His mother, a woman of principle, must be spinning (or whatever)!

I personally doubt that this “we are at war”, “Boris is the second Churchill” (second time as farce?), White Cliffs of the NHS stuff is really believed or followed by most people, despite the frankly pathetic (though no doubt well-meaning on the part of many) “Clap for the NHS” Schauspielen.

Coronavirus deaths in the UK have peaked

This is not in fact because of, or even mainly because of, the “lockdown”, however. The government seems to be intent on pretending that it is, though. Fine, but now would be the time to end the “lockdown”, either completely —at once— or in stages over, say, two weeks. The fact that this incompetent government seems intent on keeping the “lockdown” going for weeks more, maybe even to the end of June, is incredible. Massive commercial and industrial damage all over the UK and more deaths from causes other than Coronavirus.

London may recover before too long (economically) because of the financial services industry and (after a while) tourism, but the rest of Britain? The “left behind” areas and regions? The North? I think not.

Every week longer that passes under the lockdown nonsense now puts the UK deeper into a hole which it may struggle to exit.

Tweets

Interesting graph

Image

Interesting and informative, but the government and msm will turn a Nelsonian eye on it, and hope that most members of the public do not see it (or understand it, simple though it be)…

More tweets

That last tweet is important, because it makes the points that matter about UK MPs (most of them, in fact almost all) and ministers, including Cabinet ministers. In Britain and especially in England, the holding of an office does tend to confer often unmerited respect. So we see “Cokehead” Gove and even little Matt Hancock treated with risible deference by the msm.

The most absurd msm sycophancy also lands at the feet of Boris-idiot, at least now that he is not going to snuff it from Coronavirus. He has not just had an unpleasant infection from which he has recovered (thanks in part to nurses whose pay he voted to freeze only a couple of years ago), but is a great war leader who has won a “battle for Britain” (at least in the tiny minds of Sun, Mail on Sunday and Daily Telegraph scribblers).

Most MPs in the UK now struggle, not for greatness, not for great intelligence, erudition, charisma or empathy, but for mediocrity. Many fail to make it even that high. That is why I decided to start my Deadhead MPs series on this blog.

Product shortages

I did not visit a supermarket yesterday (Sunday), though I did get some cat treats and cashed a Lotto scratchcard at a small Tesco convenience store at which I was the only customer (at 2200 hrs; apparently they open daily from 0600 until midnight). Perhaps it was not crowded because they did not sell loo paper! Or had run out. I did not notice any on sale, though I was not wishing to buy any in any case.

I blogged yesterday about the bulk-buying/panic-buying phenomenon, having seen the shelves of the local Waitrose cleared of loo paper, pasta, flour (are people thinking of baking their own bread?) and tuna.

In fact, as the link below shows, the UK has a huge loo paper manufacturing capability: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8115233/Inside-Manchester-toilet-roll-factory-4-7million-rolls-day.html

The UK actually exports loo paper, though the raw material for that is mostly imported, 1.1M tonnes out of 1.3M tonnes, the latter fact not noted in the Daily Mail report.

In the event of anyone completely running out of loo paper, torn up bits of Pravda or the Daily Telegraph will do, in extremis. Good advice; don’t thank me… (but see my own previous problems with using kitchen roll, below).

There will be a natural end to the short-term product shortages. Most people do not have unlimited funds or space, and in any case once they have enough dried food, tinned food and loo paper for a month or two, will revert to buying in their usual quantities. Then, once the public sees that the shelves are fully stocked again, panic and fear will cease.

“Private enterprise” blodgers

The economic enterprises that have operated on a ruthless finance-capitalistic basis for years, decades, now have their hands and begging bowls held out, Virgin Atlantic among them! Richard Branson, the tax-avoiding billionaire whose activities (IMO) have been rather negative over the years (though I admit that I was a frequent user of his London-Newark, New Jersey flights in the early 1990s), wants a bail-out or a handout! Nein danke! I give the same answer to all the other businesses that want “compensation” for business downturns caused by Coronavirus. The last thing that Government should do is “bail out” private economic enterprises. The bank bail-out of 12-13 year ago was a disastrous mistake too. More so, in fact, banks being merely useful parasites upon the real economy.

Grant Shapps and Coronavirus weaselling

I cannot recall offhand what exactly I tweeted several years ago about the Jew Grant Shapps and which eventually (with about 4 other tweets on other subjects) got me disbarred. Something about him being a dodgy, dishonest little Jew, or words to that effect. Something true, anyway. The horrible little bastard is now a Cabinet minister, incredibly, in Boris-idiot’s ZOG [Zionist Occupation Government] Cabinet. I saw this today:

In fact, out of the (eventually whittled-down from 7 to) 5 tweets that had me disbarred, 2 were about dishonest Conservative Party MPs: one was Grant Shapps, and the other was Jews’ doormat, thief, expenses cheat and (though we only discovered it in 2019) cocaine abuser, Michael Gove, also now a Cabinet minister. Are we seeing a pattern?…

Use loo paper, not kitchen roll

The Guardian has published a report warning people not to use kitchen roll as a substitute for loo paper (because the latter is formulated to disintegrate in water). https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/16/uks-sewage-system-in-danger-of-gridlock-from-toilet-paper-substitutes-coronavirus

As luck would have it, I have personal experience of this, though not in the UK.

In late 1997 and the first months of 1998, I lived in Egypt. I spent five or six weeks of that time in Alexandria, where I took for a month a flat in the supposedly upmarket suburb of Mamoura Beach.

Image result for mamoura beach

Mamoura

There was one small general grocery-type shop in the then off-season gated suburb. That shop sold loo paper but it was rather expensive because most Arabs do not use it (they use a system involving a small water spout inside the loo…ghastly). I discovered that kitchen roll cost about a third of the price of loo paper. Therein lay the seeds of my destruction!

Yes, dear reader, after a couple of weeks the (in any case ramshackle) Egyptian plumbing stopped functioning. Despite my increasingly irritated efforts to get the estate office (three completely and typically useless Egyptian men who sat in their office doing f*** all, all day and every day) to take an interest and above all send a plumber, I had to live for a week or more with the bathroom floor flooded by water and worse. “The plumber will come to you tomorrow, or the next day, or Thursday….inshallah”…

Then, on the day before I was due to leave (to go to the oasis of Siwa deep in the Sahara near Libya), a plumber and his assistant turned up, worked for hours and cleared the blockage, insisting on showing me why the plumbing had ceased operating. Kitchen roll. I was so embarrassed that I felt obliged to give him extra and generous baksheesh on top of his actual fee.

Be warned.

Coronavirus

Interesting. Has the British Government seen this? The NHS? Are they capable of moving fast enough if they have seen it?

As for the UK official reaction to the crisis generally, what a bad joke it is. I saw a few tweets about it. Here’s one (click to read interesting thread):

and this one:

The Government, NHS, State generally, are losing all credibility and legitimacy. In fact, looking at the way that the big supermarket chains have collaborated during this crisis and actually done things, it occurs to me that the supermarket executives could do a far better job of running this poor country than “Boris” and his pack of idiots (and the NHS administrators or maladministrators).

Midnight

Sitrep: went out late to a Tesco supermarket about 6 miles away. Not many shoppers. The shelves were largely bare, as if a cloud of locusts had been. Oddly, the loo paper that has attracted msm attention recently was still available, but all pasta and most pasta sauce in jars had gone, as had all bread, even pitta bread and wraps etc, bar the odd solitary survivor. Cat litter all gone. Cleaning products very depleted.

For the first time since this crisis erupted, I felt a certain apprehension. Just a feeling. Meaning that, in a crisis, the British people may not “pull together”, partly because there are too many divergent strands now in the UK. Whites, blacks, browns, Chinese, Jews, all types of European or semi-European, you name it. There is also little “community” now, what the Germans call Gemeinschaft.

I feel that there is altruism and “Christian” or selfless feeling in existence out there, but that the social framework that has grown up in recent decades militates against it, makes it unable to flower.

Regrettably, it may well be that, as Dietrich Eckart said a century ago, “the rabble needs to hear the rattle of machineguns and feel some fear in its pants.”

I have no confidence in the resilience of this society as it now is. It may well start to fall apart if real shocks hit it. Then it will be up to those of us who see the need for a better society to re-establish order and create such a better society, come what may!

China. What an appalling country. Cruel to animals and people alike. Its technical and organizational capabilities are sometimes impressive (as is its ancient culture) but it is, in the end, backward despite those capabilities and despite that culture.

Harry Dunn case

Dominic Raab, the half-Jew who is now Foreign Secretary under this ZOG regime, stands accused of blackmailing a British family to stop their court action, which relates to the death of their son. Disgrace. All because the UK has gradually become an American colony thanks to Churchill (half-“American” and probable part-Jew) and his successors. Disgrace.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8060929/Harry-Dunns-mother-accuses-Dominic-Raab-using-bankruptcy-threat-stop-search-truth.html

Statement from the family of Harry Dunn:

Why we are fundraising:

Dominic Raab confirmed on 26 November 2019 in a letter to the family’s lawyers that he will be seeking to recover the Foreign Office’s costs of these legal proceedings from Harry’s parents. We have asked him repeatedly to reverse this decision but he hasn’t. This case is likely to be appealed and could go all the way to the Supreme Court, so the costs risk to the family could be upwards of £100,000.

Mr Raab has instructed the Government’s top barrister, Sir James Eadie QC, who acted in the prorogation case, as well as an international law professor, a senior junior barrister and solicitors from the Government Legal Department. This doesn’t come cheap and we are not wealthy people who could afford a huge costs order against us.

One in ten Britons could end up in hospital with coronavirus according to NHS officials who are drawing up a ‘battle plan’ to tackle the deadly outbreak.” [Daily Mail]

Who are they trying to fool? The NHS can scarcely cope with its present responsibilities and tasks.

I liked a few of the comments to that Daily Mail story, though:

Lets hope Cameron is the first casualty, he cut the NHS budget to the bone so the few could have massive tax cuts.

Labour leadership contest

The latest opinion poll was published 2 days ago, and based on earlier fieldwork :

I do not know enough about internal Labour politics to say how accurate that is, but it looks as though Keir Starmer, whom I thought would be a shoo-in, may not win as easily as predicted.

There is no need for there to be a final 2-candidate contest or “playoff” if one candidate out of the three remaining gets 50%+ of the vote:

https://labourlist.org/2020/01/how-labours-leadership-elections-work-party-rules-in-full/

At present, though, it looks as if Starmer’s support may fall short. If Lisa Nandy comes third in the next round and so is removed from the race, to which candidate will her votes go? It is unlikely that most will go to Rebecca Long-Bailey, so Starmer is almost certainly going to win. Long-Bailey would have to pick up more than three-quarters of Lisa Nandy’s votes in order to overhaul Starmer. Very unlikely, but you never know.

Whichever one wins, they have all kow-towed to the Jewish lobby, so they are all damned as far as I am concerned.

Coronavirus: expert advice etc

Click on tweet for full 15-tweet thread

Talking about the Chinese Coronavirus, one disgusting aspect is that it seems that anyone in the UK over 60 and/or those with ongoing health problems will be at the back of the line for NHS treatment or care.

Great…so any migrant-invaders, fake “asylum-seekers”, tinker “traveller” riff-raff, any humanoid straight off the boat or plane, any young “chavscum” etc will be prioritized ahead of those mostly native British people who have worked, striven, created, suffered all their lives, fought in wars, in most cases also having paid in large amounts to the NHS via taxes (including “National Insurance”, which is just an extra income tax).

In fact, the “British” Government (ZOG regime) will welcome, secretly, a cull of the over-60s, because it will save them some of the “holy money” they revere so much.

The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan in UK television ads…

Many of my readers will be well aware of the sinister Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan:

https://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-coudenhove-kalergi-plan-the-genocide-of-the-peoples-of-europe/ which is sometimes referred to, in part, as The Great Replacement. The mixing of huge numbers of migrant-invaders with Europeans in order to create a mixed-race population (which will be ruled over by a Jew/mixed Jew-non-Jew “elite”: think David Cameron-Levita, Theresa May, Zac Goldsmith etc). This plan was put forwatd by the very sinister Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_von_Coudenhove-Kalergi

Despite the aristocratic European parentage on his paternal side, von Coudenhove-Kalergi was half-Japanese. His first wife was a Jewish actress, and he was bankrolled by uber-wealthy Jew bankers, particularly a Rothschild and a Warburg.

Returning to the question of UK television ads, many have noticed that, in the past few years, the default “TV family” in such ads is a mized-race one, usually with a black as “husband” and “father”, and a white woman, often blonde, as “wife” and “mother”. So common is that scenario now that people are either making jokes about it or getting angry about it, both online and in the comments sections of newspapers. I myself blogged about it a year or so ago:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/

Now ASDA (i.e. ad agency employed by ASDA) has produced an ad in that vein: “husband”/”father” black as the ace of spades, white woman as “mother”/”wife” figure, but with the added absurd twist of two “daughters”, one coffee-coloured and with hair sticking out in a semi-Afro, the other girl blonde and the two bearing no resemblance to each other.

I think that we must be clear about all of this. This is cultural war on the peoples of Europe. This is an aspect of “White Genocide”. It is an attempt to eliminate the European peoples as such, and to mix with the European, the African and Asian, and thus to deflect Europe from its historic mission to move eventually, and in the right way, from the 5th Post-Atlantean cultural age (c.1400-c.3500 AD) to the Sixth Post-Atlantean. That is on the high level. On the more mundane level, this propaganda can only lead to the elimination of Europe as a significant world bloc, and to its role being usurped, on the Western flank, by North America, which has to some extent already happened.

Gove

Apropos of nothing much, I have just become aware that, at age 28, Michael Gove, the pro-Israel scribbler, expenses cheat, cocaine abuser and now Cabinet Minister, took part in a film called A Feast At Midnight, released in 1995 to muted reception. Gove’s role was that of the school chaplain. The film had famous actors in it, including Christopher Lee and Robert Hardy, but sank almost without trace.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Feast_at_Midnight]

Films set in schools often do bomb. When I was at school, a film was made there during the summer vacation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unman,_Wittering_and_Zigo_(film). Along with other pupils, I was asked whether I wanted a role as an extra. I declined. I remember David Hemmings, then a well-known actor, taking a class (of about 15-20), presumably to get the feel of his role (a new schoolmaster). I myself exchanged a few words with him. The film was made, but bombed. It is rarely seen even on nostalgia TV channels.

I suppose that there are exceptions, If being one:

When I lived in Little Venice, London, at various times but especially in parts of the 1990s I used to see Peter Jeffrey, the “Headmaster” in If, in the local pub occasionally. We had a couple of brief conversations. My impression: not a very nice man (that was only my impression, though). He was a pretty good actor (he was cast in Anne of the Thousand Days —as the Duke of Norfolk— and in many other major films).

Andrew Marr Show

Newspaper review: Andrew Marr with two not very interesting women, one a newspaper journalist or editor, the other being Sarah Vine (looking at her, presumably Jewish or part-Jew), who is also the wife of —pro-Israel and pro-Jewish lobby— expenses cheat and cocaine-sniveller Michael Gove, a Cabinet minister [switches off…].

Meine Ehre heisst Treue

There will be men who even without mentioning us because they will not be allowed or because they will fear to do so, will try to travel on that path of ours. And they will be fought and betrayed just as we were. But in the end, we will win, because good and true always triumphs over this world.” [Goebbels, 1945]

Priti Patel

What is worst, a Cabinet minister who is too thick for her job, one who is an Israeli agent of influence (maybe not just of influence), or one who is simply deceitful, unreliable and malicious? With Priti Patel, you don’t have to choose: she hits all of those…

The Boris Johnson Cabinet

I start this examination of the new Boris Johnson government by posting part of an interview with Nicholas Soames MP [Con, Mid Sussex] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Soames

I have, of course, blogged about Boris Johnson before:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/07/19/after-a-2019-general-election-what/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/07/06/the-conservatives-boris-johnson-upcoming-political-events-and-the-currents-in-society/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/06/12/boris-a-story-for-our-times/

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/06/09/the-conservative-party-leadership-contenders-in-outline/

Any brief perusal of my above blogs about Boris Johnson will show that I am unremittingly hostile to him, despite the fact that I have always favoured Brexit (which he also now does, though only or mainly because it suits his narcissistic ambitions). What I want to do in this blog article is to examine those he has chosen to be in and around his Cabinet. I cannot examine every one for reasons of space and length, so I have chosen to focus on a few key players, as well as on the overall thrust of this new Cabinet.

Priti Patel

Thick as two short planks, Priti Patel is now a “British” Cabinet minister, having been saved from spending her life serving customers behind the counter of a Kampala grocery shop by her parents having immigrated to the UK, “several years” before Idi Amin became Ugandan leader in 1971.

Priti Patel is a member of Conservative Friends of Israel, and was exposed as being effectively an agent of Israel only 2 years ago. This daughter of Indian immigrants, this Israeli agent, this expenses-freeloader (she “employed” her husband part-time, on expenses, from 2014-2017) and supporter of harsh and cruel policies is now going to rule over British people as Home Secretary.

Hard to believe that an MP, let alone a Cabinet minister, could be as plainly thick as Priti Patel really is, but the fact that she is has been proven time and again. Example:

https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/24778/priti_patel/witham

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

Esther McVey

A few facts about Esther McVey in government:

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/esther-mcvey-housing-minister-record-11831140

Now Minister of State for Housing, not normally a Cabinet post, but it seems that she is either being treated as a member of the Cabinet or is at least attending. It will be recalled that she was partly responsible for implementation of the ghastly “bedroom tax” created by [Conservative Friends of Israel] Iain Dunce Duncan Smith and jew “lord” Freud.

McVey is someone who was willing to accept and promote the attacks on the poor, disabled and unemployed (and the elderly) during her previous time in government. She is also a member of Conservative Friends of Israel. She is yet another one who is as thick as two short planks, her cartoon view of the world being expressed in a Liverpudlian accent almost impossible to understand.

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

Dominic Raab

Half-Jew, though supposedly not brought up culturally Jewish. Hard-faced careerist. As far as I know, another member of Conservative Friends of Israel. Has visited and worked in Israel/Palestine.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/who-dominic-raab-foreign-secretary-12882420

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

Sajid Javid

A Pakistani, though born in the UK. A very weird individual, who is obsessed by the Jewess known as “the philosopher of selfishness”, Ayn Rand:

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayn_Rand#Political_influence

Sajid Javid, a member of Conservative Friends of Israel, is so pro-Israel that he even spent his honeymoon there, despite he and his wife both being non-Jewish. As Home Secretary (2018-2019), he made the astonishing assertion that he supports the violent “antifa” thugs [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifa_(United_States)

and he has been seen at Scotland Yard events alongside Jewish Zionist “activists” such as Stephen Silverman of the malicious “Campaign Against Antisemitism” or “CAA” cabal (Silverman being someone who has been exposed in open court as a serial troll and harasser, and who used pseudonyms to disguise his identity while doing that). Silverman and the CAA attempt to influence government and police policy in favour of Zionism and Israel, working with groups such as “UK Lawyers for Israel” etc, the memberships of which often overlap.

Javid, unsurprisingly in view of his background, thinks that mass immigration has benefited the UK!

Javid became a director of Deutsche Bank in 2000, leaving in 2009, by which time that bank had become one of the main “drivers” (causes) of the worldwide banking crisis:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsche_Bank#Financial_crisis_years_(2007%E2%80%932012)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sajid_Javid#Banking_career

This person, Sajid Javid, is now the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Cabinet minister in charge of government finances, tax, overall financial strategy etc. Very worrying…

Grant Shapps

Jew and member of Conservative Friends of Israel. Exposed in 2012 as having used two pseudonyms in order to basically cheat members of the public by selling them dodgy business and self-improvement courses! He even got into the Palace of Westminster using those false IDs! In fact the Jew has a history of dodgy business dealings, tax dodging and cheating the public.

Now Shapps has been appointed to the Cabinet as Transport Secretary! You really could not make it up. Speaking of transport, when will my train arrive?

Hitlers-train-Amerika

This “government” is, in the immortal words of Johnny Mercer MP (applied to Theresa May’s tenure) a “shitshow”. In fact, if the Theresa May government was a “shitshow”, Boris-idiot’s one is going to be a total shitshow!

Mark Spencer

Not a Cabinet minister, but the new Government Chief Whip, who attends Cabinet and is a key figure, especially in a government with no majority and even with Democratic Unionist Party [DUP] support only a majority of 3 or 4, which will probably soon be 1 or 2, depending on the result of the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election and whether Charlie Elphicke MP [Con, Dover] is allowed to remain on bail (and so vote in the Commons), having been charged with three sexual assaults against two women:

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/jul/22/tory-mp-charlie-elphicke-charged-with-sexual-assault

The Guardian journalist and Chief Political Correspondent, Jessica Elgot (a Jewish Zionist who, if memory serves, blocked me on Twitter before I was expelled), has penned this cheerful piece about Spencer:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jul/23/relative-unknown-mark-spencer-becomes-chief-whip

Jessica Elgot’s Guardian piece somehow neglects to mention that “Spencer attracted criticism in early 2015 after suggesting that a man with learning difficulties who had been left without food or power after being sanctioned for arriving four minutes late at the benefit office should “learn the discipline of timekeeping“” [Wikipedia]; or that

In January 2016, Spencer was one of 72 MPs who voted down an amendment in Parliament on rental homes being “fit for human habitation” who were themselves landlords who derived an income from a property.” [Wikipedia]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Spencer_(British_politician)#Controversies

In other words, Mark Spencer is a hard-faced bully type, as well as being a parasite landlord. What a horrible bastard.

I wonder whether new Chief Whip, Mark Spencer MP, is also a member of Conservative Friends of Israel? IMO, odds-on…

The immediate reaction about the new government from John Rentoul

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/boris-johnson-reshuffle-cabinet-patel-raab-general-election-a9019661.html

My View

This is a disaster of a Cabinet, a disaster of a government, led by a part-Jew public entertainer who probably should never have been even a backbench MP, certainly never have become even a junior minister, let alone a Cabinet minister. That such a person is now Prime Minister of the UK, and leader of one of the two main System parties, is an indictment of that same political system. The political and electoral systems are broken. The House of Commons is full of trash.

What else? Well, as we have seen, all those examined (including Boris-idiot) are Conservative Friends of Israel, with at least one (I think maybe three) being in effect Israeli agent(s) of influence (if not more). The same will be true of the rest of the Cabinet.

This is not only the most pro-Jewish Lobby, pro-Israel Cabinet ever, but the least truly British (in any real sense; yes, they have British passports; actually, some have or had others, like Boris-idiot, who actually was a US citizen with a US passport until quite recently!); Sajid Javid— Pakistani; Dominic Raab— part-Jew, Priti Patel— Indian.

Even The Times of Israel impliedly agrees!

and the Jewish Chronicle!

*and look at this:

Johnson’s maternal great-grandfather was a Russian Jewish immigrant named Elias Avery Lowe.” [Breaking Israel News]

““I feel Jewish when I feel the Jewish people are threatened or under attack, that’s when it sort of comes out. When I suddenly get a whiff of antisemitism, it’s then that you feel angry and protective.” [Boris Johnson]

In addition to his Jewish ancestry, Johnson has even stronger ties to Israel through his Jewish stepmother, Jennifer Kidd Johnson, who married his father Stanley in 1981. 

In 1984, Johnson, age 20, and his sister Rachel spent six weeks in Israel, volunteering on Kibbutz Kfar Hanasi, approximately 22 miles north of the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel. 

The visit was coordinated by Michael Comay, a career Israeli diplomat and close family friend of Johnson’s stepmother. Comay and his wife Joan connected the Johnson siblings with the overseas volunteer program at Kibbutz Kfar Hanassi.” [Breaking Israel News]

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/134041/new-uk-prime-minister-descended-from-rabbi-feels-jewish/

Several of those appointed to Cabinet, including Raab, Priti Patel and Liz Truss, were co-authors of the notorious booklet Britannia Unchained, their credo being unrestrained finance capitalism and the British people as slaves to usurers and employers:

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

Highlights?

  • “Britain needs to adopt a far-reaching form of free market economics, with fewer employment laws”;
  • “The British are among the worst idlers in the world. We work among the lowest hours, we retire early and our productivity is poor. Whereas Indian children aspire to be doctors or businessmen, the British are more interested in football and pop music.” [Wikipedia]

Well, I agree about the football and pop music etc, but the rest postulates as an ideal a dystopian economic slave-society (is that surprising, when you see that the booklet was written mostly by those from non-British, non-European backgrounds, societies where slavery and serfdom are still ubiquitous: India, Pakistan etc?)

What now?

So unfree is the UK already, that if I were to print what I really believe should be done to remove this government of evil, I should probably have the police at my door.

In terms of what might happen politically or electorally to remove this unelected System dictatorship led by Boris-idiot, it is a grace from God that its Commons majority is almost non-existent even with its bought (by Theresa May) DUP support. Soon it will have no majority in the Commons even with those bought DUP votes.

The Brexit dilemma is the first matter. It is suggested that Boris-idiot will try to leave the EU either without agreement with the EU, or with an agreement not much different than that Theresa May agreed, but which was rejected by the Commons. The probability must be that the same will happen again. If so, Johnson will before long face a no-confidence vote, which probably but not necessarily will lead to a general election. Johnson thinks that he can win such an election. Not if Brexit Party stands 650 candidates as promised. Brexit Party may sink the Conservative Party even if it itself fails to win a single seat.

On the other hand, if Boris Johnson makes an electoral pact with Nigel Farage, eg guaranteeing Brexit Party a free run in say 50 seats in return for the reverse in the remaining 600, that is a gamble which threatens to destroy the Conservative party as a main national party contesting all seats. It also risks creating a far more powerful because far more credible Brexit Party.

What if Johnson in effect caves in, accepting a poor “deal” with the EU (assuming that the Commons approve it)? That would be the end of Johnson as Prime Minister even if he were able to cling on for a while. At the next general election, he would probably lose his own seat, as would 100 or even 200 of his MPs.

What about other matters unconnected directly with Brexit? The Conservative majority is now effectively gone already, with quite a few anti-Boris MPs likely to abstain on critical votes. This “government” scarcely has the strength to be called “lame duck”.

It is worth noting that the Conservative Party has not managed to win a really substantial majority at a general election since the 1980s, though in 1992 and 2015 it had enough MPs to rule (leaving aside Brexit) without serious interruption (which is why Mrs May’s decision to hold a snap election in 2017 was such a great error).

In the end, Britain needs social nationalism. This weak and stupid government of aliens is the opposite, a would-be tyranny of non-Brits, non-Europeans, and pro-Israel dystopians. It is evil and must go.

and still the show goes on

Notes and updates

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7287171/The-gilded-life-Boris-Johnsons-new-team.html

Update, 27 July 2019

I was musing on exactly why Boris-idiot has appointed so many of what Ronnie Reagan might have described as “misfits, looney tunes and squalid criminals” to his Cabinet. Yes, they are mostly Leave supporters; yes, they are mostly those who supported Johnson in the Conservative Party leadership contest; but I think that there is another reason.

In my view, Boris-idiot was limited in his choice because so many potential ministers and Cabinet ministers simply would not and will not serve under Johnson. In fact many who served under Theresa May did not wait to see whether they might be reappointed or given other jobs. They ruled themselves out.

There are two or three aspects to this:

  • Many MPs and most former ministers despise Boris-idiot and simply cannot see him as a real Prime Minister of this country. They know that he was out of his depth as Foreign Secretary and that he is even more out of his depth as Prime Minister;
  • MPs mostly know very well that this government of crazies cannot last long, firstly because of its crazy and/or plain thick Cabinet ministers. When it falls, they do not want to be contaminated by association with it;
  • also, this government cannot last long because the Parliamentary arithmetic scarcely adds up even now. Once the Brecon and Radnorshire seat is lost (1 August 2019, this coming Thursday) and if Charlie Elphicke is convicted, later this year or early next year, of the sexual assault of two different women, the Government will have no majority at all, even with the DUP support bought by Theresa May. There is every chance that this government will be gone by Christmas. When that happens, the Conservative Party will probably either lose to Labour (i.e. get fewer seats), or at any rate get fewer seats than it now has. Either way, Boris will be gone as Prime Minister, his ignominious parody PM act having lasted only a few months.

Look at those who are now in Cabinet and in other ministerial posts! I have blogged already about some: Priti Patel as Home Secretary! This is a bad dream! Sajid Javid; Esther McVey!…; Grant Shapps…; Dominic Raab; Liz Truss (!); GAVIN WILLIAMSON…WHAT?!…the idiot who plays with his pet spider and wanted our troops to face the Russian Armed Forces with guns mounted on tractors or in the back of furniture lorries!…; even bloody Nadine Dorries is a minister of state now! Nadine Dorries, who was one of the biggest expenses freeloaders in the Commons, “employing” her recently-graduated daughters at the highest pay level permitted [in 2019, that level is £50,000 p.a.], and allowing one of them at least to occupy the taxpayer-funded flat in Central London meant to be for the MP’s own use, whereas Nadine Dorries actually commuted back daily to Bedfordshire (by rail, First Class, and of course again on expenses)! She also got all three (herself + 2 daughters) expensive new laptops and telephones etc on expenses! This is like a TV sketch writer’s joke!

I have little doubt that, just as his shambolic term as Mayor of London spawned the political comedy show The Thick of It, Boris Johnson’s term as Prime Minister will generate another political sit-com. The British people may not see the joke.

Well, enough for today, but anyone who saw Boris-idiot making promises of rail lines in Northern England when he was speaking in Manchester today saw a person well out of his depth, putting on a “prime ministerial” act and failing to raise to even a decent am-dram level. As a speaker, Johnson is poor (though his ad-lib humorous style might be OK for after-dinner speechifying). Content? Very poor. Delivery? Amateur and unconvincing.

Finally, one must ask why so many Conservative MPs voted for this clown to be their leader. I think that the answer is that most of the other candidates were also very poor, and even the few with potential to do the job of PM (leaving aside my firm ideological opposition to them) had impediments, such as that they were Remain supporters (eg Rory Stewart) or unconvincing recent Leave convertees (Jeremy Hunt and maybe Stewart), or with a negative public image (Michael Gove, a one-time cocaine abuser, as well as a flagrant expenses cheat in the 2005-2010 Parliament and possibly later).

The vote for Johnson, by most Conservative MPs, was a gamble, the gamble that the public entertainer and bullshitter can “reach the voters other MPs cannot reach”. I think that the Conservative Party is about to lose its shirt.

Update, 28 September 2019

Michael Gove, seen intoxicated through drink or drugs in the Chamber of the House of Commons recently! This is becoming just bizarre! (ignore the silly “Nazi newspapers” comment by the tweeter. “Nazi newspapers”? If only…!)
