Diary Blog, 22 May 2022, with more thoughts about the war in Ukraine

Russia/Ukraine

Plenty of msm comment to the effect that Putin is washed-up, that there may be a coup d’etat etc. Hard to say.

Some of the “Putin is finished” comment (including that with origins in UK/US intelligence services) may be wishful thinking. There is no obvious replacement for Putin, as far as I can see. If there were, he would not live long once Putin noticed him!

We hear that the war in Ukraine is lost. Is it? The pockets of Ukrainian resistance in the south and south-east have just been stamped out. The UK msm may call the surrender of the Ukrainian forces at the Azovstal plant near Mariopol/Mariupol an “evacuation“, but few are fooled by the “transformative language”. The Ukrainian forces left alive surrendered to the Russian forces.

To my mind, there are two, maybe three, main factors why Russia has not used even more brutal tactics in order to win militarily in Ukraine. The first is that Ukraine, after all, was almost part of Russia, certainly very closely linked, for a thousand years or more, albeit that the history is complex: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Ukraine.

The second reason that Russia has not as yet pulled out all the stops is that use of the most brutal weapons and tactics (e.g. battlefield or tactical nuclear weapons, e.g. flattening completely all major Ukrainian cities not in Russian hands) might bring down NATO response despite the inherent dangers in that.

The third reason why Russia has not brought to bear all its enormous power is that Putin wants to take over at least something of a functioning agricultural and industrial economy after any Russian victory, an objective impossible of realization if the cities are totally destroyed, the population killed or driven out, or if the land itself is contaminated.

I note that the Jew Zelensky, puppet head of the Kiev regime, has now said that diplomacy, not war, is the way to end the conflict. Does that betoken a perceived weakness in the Ukrainian position on the ground, or does it mean that Zelensky’s cabal thinks that the Russian military position is weak? You could look at it either way.

Zelensky, however, has obviously been told not to cede any territory to Russia de jure, not even Crimea, where 90%+ of the population is Russian and only about 2% Ukrainian now.

Speculating here as advocatus diabolus, some in the Russian camp may be thinking of a “Devil’s alternative”— destroying Kharkov, and even Kiev, almost entirely, as well as other places, driving out the Ukrainian population, then eventually repopulating the part of Ukraine east of the Dnieper with Russian settlers.

That would be a terrible and almost Biblical scenario, but it has happened in Europe previously, most recently in 1944-1946, when German populations were killed and/or driven out of East Prussia, Galicia, Pomerania and Bohemia, replaced by Russians (Konigsberg, East Prussia/Kaliningradskaya oblast), Poles (East Prussia, Pomerania and Galicia), and Czechs (Bohemia/Sudetenland).

Alison Chabloz

Many readers of this blog will be aware that persecuted satirist and singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, was imprisoned (again) in mid-April for poking fun in song at some aspects of Jewish behaviour. She was sentenced to 22 weeks, which in terms of actual custody is 11 weeks (77 days). She has now served 38 days, meaning that sometime tomorrow (Monday 23 May 2022) she will be at the halfway point of her actual custodial sentence.

Imprisoned for singing a song. Britain has fallen far…

A social menace that has been treated with kid gloves for far too long.

…and another part of that is to divide and rule over the motoring public, as witness the recent slew of fake “opinion polls” saying that “most people” want those over the age of 90, 80, 70, and even 60 either to be barred from driving or forced to retake a driving test (most people, even at 20 or 30, would struggle to pass the test again years after having passed).

…yet we hear all the time from System sources that the “Great Replacement” is a mere “conspiracy theory”. Indeed, Prosecution Counsel in the recent Alex Davies trial made that very point, if I recall the newspaper report aright; yet here we are, and we see that the Guardian (no less) is citing a United Nations report on it.

King was certainly a grade-A hypocrite.

The American lawyer, William Pepper, who defended King’s alleged assassin, James Earl Ray, was a door tenant at the very odd chambers where I did my pupillage in London (in 1992-1993). I met him once.

I remember that a young lady I knew laughed on seeing the board by the entrance showing the names of all members of chambers, and which had him down as “Dr. Pepper”, like the root beer. Well, in her defence, she was only 15.

I recently blogged about my trip to Porton Down in 1994 or 1995 with the then Ukrainian Ambassador to London, Mr. Komissarenko, a trained biochemist, who later headed a laboratory institute in Ukraine.

Nicola Sturgeon, the fake “nationalist”, and would-be dictator, who pretends to be a sort-of “prime minister” of a sort-of almost-independent country.

They might at least keep their emotional propaganda a little bit plausible…

If only the “virus” propaganda were true, and all those MPs suddenly died from lack of facemask nonsense and “social distancing” nonsense. Fantasy politics?

The U.S. Government has blinked…

Thank God for that.

In a way, though, it is rather funny… this silly woman, and would-be dictator, pretending to be some kind of world leader, when in fact her opinion counts for precisely nothing internationally. She heads what is little more than a glorified multi-county council.

Apparently, some orchestras, including one in Cardiff, are now refusing to play Russian music, even that of Tchaikovsky, who died long before Putin was around, and long before the establishment of Soviet power.

Diary Blog, 28 November 2021

Keir Starmer interview

As mentioned in yesterday’s blog post [https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/11/27/diary-blog-27-november-2021/], I heard and later saw parts of Nick Robinson’s interview with Keir Starmer. Now, because it has been recycled several times on BBC World TV, I have seen most of the rest of it.

Overall impression? What an incredible “cuck”, in the American vernacular, that man is! Actually, his manner reminds me of another weasel, now deceased: Cecil Parkinson [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Parkinson]. There is even a passing physical resemblance:

Lord Parkinson 2015.png
[Cecil Parkinson]

The above picture shows Parkinson when aged 75. When younger, he looked a good deal more like Starmer, in my opinion.

I doubt, however, that Starmer is a shit, in the personal realm, on anything like (if at all) the level that Parkinson was:

Parkinson died from colorectal cancer at The London Clinic in Marylebone, London, on 22 January 2016.[14] He left nothing in his will for his daughter Flora:[15] in April 2017, it was reported that Sara Keays was preparing to sue Parkinson’s estate to continue to gain support for her daughter’s 24-hour care, for regular payments had ceased a few months after Parkinson died.[16]

Parkinson’s daughter, Mary, was found dead at her home in Wandsworth on 10 December 2017, aged 57. Police did not treat the death as suspicious,[17] and it was later reported that she had committed suicide.” [Wikipedia].

[addendum: it seems that Parkinson did make Flora Keays the beneficiary of a life assurance policy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Keays].

Apart from the (to my mind) physical similarity, Parkinson had something else in common with Starmer, who is (at an educated guess) a freemason. Parkinson was apparently an “active freemason” [Wikipedia]. It would be surprising if Starmer, a former Director of Public Prosecutions, were not a freemason, though I concede that I have no direct evidence that he is.

I ought to add that I once knew a woman who was seated alongside Parkinson at a State banquet, some time not long after the scandal with Sara Keays. That woman said that Parkinson was quite sympathetic in his manner. Maybe he went down better with women; I always thought that he deserved a good kick.

Reverting to that Nick Robinson interview, obviously Starmer is not a clown and pathetic waste of space in the “Boris” Johnson mode, but actually I can see why he has not really cut through to the public, despite Johnson’s incredible lack of ability and competence.

Starmer, like a good mid-range lawyer, makes the right noises: Channel migration invasion must be dealt with by “cross-border co-operation“, and the “upstream causes” dealt with, said he.

What does that mean? “Upstream causes“? So…wars and socio-economic problems in places such as Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria, Afghanistan, black Africa etc? How will Starmer “deal with”, or cure, those? Answer came there none, methinks.

The only thing that Starmer looked at all passionate about, or even interested in, was so-called “anti-Semitism”, with the focus on his Jewish wife and half-Jewish children. I saw no real interest in (or policy concerning) the huge poverty that does exist in the UK in places, made worse by continuing mass immigration. Housing problems, the same.

It may be that Starmer does take an interest in those social, and so political, problems, but if so he failed to actually convey any great interest. That is of importance in a supposedly “democratic” political leader.

Hitler talked about “dirty democratic politicians“. We are now in a contest between the sheer incompetence and corruption of the “Boris” regime, and the —if you like— “managerial semi-socialism” of a Keir Starmer Labour offering. No wonder the opinion polls show a stalemate at present.

Looking again at Parkinson’s Wikipedia entry, interesting to note that he achieved high office despite having come from unmoneyed, modest, and indeed humble, origins. Something increasingly rare in our own day.

Quite. The facemask and “vaccine” zealots display a pathology that is quite incredible at times, and which will of course be given full rein yet again, now that the Cabinet of clowns has ordered mask-wearing in shops, on trains etc from Tuesday.

As many have pointed out, masks in supermarkets but not in crowded pubs…The whole thing is just mad. All because (we are told) a “new variant” has appeared which may (or may not) be “as dangerous” as previous “variants”. Meaning those variants that killed 1 in 1,000 (if that) of the UK population. Madness but, on some level, planned madness.

I cannot believe that Farage retains even the slightest degree of credibility with anyone but, sadly, there probably are maybe rather dim Daily Mail readers, or Daily Express readers (if any still exist), who would still follow him.

I have only known personally two people who have knowingly contracted “the virus”. Two people! In nearly 2 years! Both in 2020. One was my late —nothing to do with “Covid”, incidentally— and then 98 y o mother-in law, who only knew she had “the virus” because she was routinely tested while in hospital for another, and completely different, problem. She had no symptoms, despite her age, infirmity, and existing medical conditions, and was discharged a few weeks later. Like so many others , she only contracted “Covid” because she was staying in one of the NHS’s shambolic hospitals.

The other person I know who has had “Covid-19” is my 20-something Australian niece, living in London, who was advised to take paracetamol, drink water, and rest! So much for the (unused) emergency “Nightingale” hospitals etc! She lost taste and smell for a week or so, had a few other symptoms, but soon made a full recovery without the need for any NHS medical assistance at all, unless you count the “take paracetamol and drink water” “advice” (given over the telephone).

Panicdemic…

All to do, really, with scaring the people to accept a biosecurity police state, so that “the Great Reset” can proceed from 2022-2055.

That ridiculous “Femi” creature was hoping to become a Labour MP, I think, and thousands of white, and even educated, Twitter twits seemed to give him credibility, about 2-4 years ago, but most people soon saw through his complete nonsense, so he remains living with his affluent parents, and pretends to be some kind of socio-political “influencer” on Twitter. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole. Note that Wikipedia calls him “British”…(apparently he was born in the UK).

Forget whatever that evil woman, Priyamvada Gopal, may have said about Israeli puppet Priti Patel; more to the point, the Gopal woman is an enemy of the British people, their history, race and culture. There are, in the real (not the strictly legal) sense, traitors riddling Whitehall.

Just heard 25 mins of his history podcast. What a total “cuck” for the Zionist lobby… a silver-spoon “favoured nephew”…

I shall not bother with his stuff again.

Apropos of that, the woman interviewed was terribly excited about a British Intelligence bod of (mainly) the 1920s and 1930s. These people never see the wood for the trees. Yes, such spy bods were and are very active, but the big picture is that Britain could have joined with the German Reich to rule much of the world, but instead of that decided to declare war against the Reich. As a result, Britain (with its big friends USA/USSR) beat Germany into the ground, but also lost both its Empire and its world role, and set itself back economically for decades.

As for the rest of the world, the Second World War was disastrous. Famine, population upheavals, civil wars, premature decolonization, environmental degradation. The effects are still rippling out.

Now? Well, we hear much about the supposed “threat” from Russia —non-existent were it not for Russia being prodded constantly by NATO (NWO)—, and of course “terrorism” (including the actually or effectively non-existent “far right” sort) while the UK is actually being destroyed from within, daily, eaten away by treacherous termites, not to mention the connected migration-invasion, and births to non-whites.

The Augean Stables need to be cleansed: msm outlets, Parliament, academia, other areas too.

The big picture is what matters, not spy games by minor-public-school careerists.

The person lionized on the podcast apparently caused many thousands of Jews to be brought to the UK.

There should be the opposite of a decoration, that could be awarded to some individuals. A “rotten tomato” medal…

Ah…just looked up the interviewee on Wikipedia:

During the 1990s, she was active on the international stage in the youth movement of The Council of Christians and Jews, and in promoting inter-faith relations. She has written over 20 books, with special expertise on the 10,000 German-speaking refugees who served in the British forces during the Second World War, especially the Royal Pioneer Corps.[1]

She is an Honorary Research Fellow in the Dept of Hebrew & Jewish Studies at University College London and Honorary member of The Association of Jewish Refugees. She teaches at the London Jewish Cultural Centre.

SNP Conference

As my blog’s regular readers will know, I usually steer clear of Scottish internal politics. I do not purport to know a great deal about Scottish politics, and have never even been there. Having said that, the SNP and its peculiar cranky little leader, Nicola Sturgeon, cannot be entirely ignored.

I happened to see the article referred to in that tweet: https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/is-this-the-beginning-of-the-end-for-nicola-sturgeon-.

The SNP, which had almost no MPs until six years ago (it took about 40 years just to get one), took off in 2015, and is still in precarious power north of the border.

The SNP benefits from not being Conservative, Labour, or LibDem. Simply that. Scotland was once rock-solid Labour, but a few years of Blair’s pathetic, smug, and dishonest henchman, Jim Murphy (and general trends), put paid to that. Labour now has only one Westminster MP from Scotland.

As the Spectator article notes, only half of the Scottish electorate (in fact, at present, less than half— 47%) favour Independence, the number one policy of the SNP.

Surely Scotland could not and would not break away from the UK if only a tiny majority voted to leave the Union?

In reality, what if even , say, 57% favoured Independence? Would that really be enough to tear Scotland from England? It might be far more divisive in Scotland than the Leave result was in the UK overall in 2016.

The SNP has not done so well in its other areas of responsibility, a fact that might explain why it has only 64 seats out of 129 in the Scottish Parliament, a plurality but not a majority (the SNP governs with the 7 votes of the Green Party): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Parliament.

No radical conclusion from me. I do not see the present Con, Lab, or LibDem parties enthusing Scotland much in terms of Westminster elections, so it seems that the SNP will remain the only game in town, north of the notional, if not “national”, border.

Corbyn libel defence fund

As most readers will know, Jeremy Corbyn is being sued for libel. The Jews are all crowing about it. They hope to see him ruined and reduced to poverty etc. Typical.

Corbyn’s defence fund has, I see as I write, now reached very nearly £330,000: https://uk.gofundme.com/f/47gyy-jeremy039s-legal-fund

Naturally, I am not and never was a “supporter” of Corbyn and/or the Labour Party. Corbyn was only too ready to pay lip-service to the propaganda of the Jew-Zionist element, notably the largely-fake “holocaust” farrago; also, he was always surrounded by blacks and seemed fine about the UK becoming a multikulti dustbin. As for his retailing of the ludicrous 1930’s Popular Front and “No Pasaran!“, “Battle of Cable Street” (etc) nonsense, well… one could ascribe that either to Corbyn’s poor intellectual level or to a lack of imagination, or both.

Having said the above, I hope that Corbyn’s defence succeeds. “They” must be opposed in all ways and at all times. Their assault on freedom of expression in the UK is now at a fever pitch.

An amusing contrast with the fear and panic engendered (mainly via government propaganda etc) by the “Coronavirus” of 2020. In fact, “Operation Sealion” (the German plan to invade the UK in 1940) was more in the nature of a contingency plan than a full operational plan, a fact underlined by its name: Unternehmen Seelowe, rather than Fall Seelowe (cf. Fall Gelb, the plan to invade France in 1940, and Uberfall auf Polen, the plan to invade Poland in 1939).

“Operation Sealion” was never a full operational plan: Hitler wanted Britain and its Empire as an ally, or at least neutral, not as an enemy or vanquished enemy, ideally, which is why he refused to allow the British forces at Dunkirk (including my own grandfather) to be destroyed.

It may be that Hitler created an impression of invasion preparation in order to get the British political leadership to the negotiating table. Three separate peace offers or offers of serious negotiation, were made; all were rejected out of hand by Churchill and his clique.

There is also the point that Germany simply did not have the sea-carrying capacity, on barges and ships, to transport sufficient forces across the Channel. In other words, Hitler could not have succeeded in invading the UK even had he wanted to do that.

The above facts were known to the British leadership in 1940, as Lord Alanbrooke (Chief of the Imperial General Staff) noted in his diary, but Churchill, in the Jewish pocket, deliberately misled the public, and pretended that an invasion was a serious possibility, and even likelihood. There never was a serious threat, but the public never knew it.

My personal impression is that large numbers of people do understand that the government has mishandled the “virus” “crisis” and that there is, now, no crisis (if there ever was). However, there is an ingrained British tendency to obey the law even where (as in this case) the law may not actually be “the law” (because invalid in itself and in its application). There is also the social pressure from the “rabbits” and the busybody types (eg re. facemask wearing). The fear of actually getting “the virus” is far less than in April or May but is still there in the background. Finally, the threat of a £100 fine is there, though that is probably the least-powerful of the reasons why there has not been much dissent and/or rebellion (eg by not wearing facemasks).

One has to judge the public mood by experience and anecdote in this. I went to a local pharmacy yesterday. I put on a small disposable mask on entering (mask below nose though), just to do the minimum to avoid being refused service. In fact, the pharmacist and assistant, though shielded by perspex screens, were not wearing masks; neither was the only other shopper, a blonde lady of about 50 or so.

Priti Patel, pretty useless

Furious Priti Patel backs sending in the Navy” [Daily Mail] https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8601819/Furious-Priti-Patel-backs-sending-Royal-Navy-tackle-migrant-crisis.html

It seems that about 17 boats full of migrant-invaders crossed the Channel yesterday, aided by hot weather and almost no wind. 250+ invaders. In one day.

Yesterday was similar: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8601215/Three-migrants-rescued-sinking-kayak-builder-swimming-Dover-Calais-charity.html

So will Priti Patel do anything except pretend to be “furious”? No. Will the Navy sink the boats of the invaders? No. Will the Navy shoot the invaders? No. Will the Navy “turn back” the invaders to France? I doubt it. So what will the Navy do, if anything? Bring the invaders to the UK? Most likely…

Priti Patel is useless. A useless bitch in a useless government. Somewhere in Uganda, a grocery store counter is unattended…
