The “panicdemic, together with its absurd “laws”, “rules” and “guidance”, has exposed, brutally, the level of psychopathology in large parts of the population. In various ways. Those who fear, not “the virus”, at root, but everything outside their own circle. The obsessive and pointless mask-wearing is one example. Another is the alacrity seen in those suddenly given petty power to tell others to wear a facemask, wear it differently or better, stay x-feet away from other shoppers (or from the said obsessive), and so on.

“The virus” has also exposed what little real respect most people now have for civil liberties, or even logic. So it was that the people —many, perhaps most, of them— accepted the ludicrous “Rule of Six” made up by the part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer and liar posing as Prime Minister.

Doubt about the official narrative has grown, but only slowly, and it may be that the System overplayed its hand, in that the conspiratorial “SAGE” committee (I used to call it “DUMB”— the “Department Under Matt and Boris”) heralded the “Omicron variant” as something likely to kill hundreds of thousands.

Well, now, only weeks after the latest alarmist predictions of the egregious Professor Ferguson and his cohorts, we see that “Omicron” is killing almost no-one, despite the frenzied testing and consequent announcement of millions of “cases”.

The public is waking up, though seems to have little real anger about having been played for two years. The System has spun it as “the measures taken mean that —if we keep “vaccinating”— we can live with Covid“. That spin or gloss pats on the back SAGE, the No.10 chancer, the government as a whole, and the poor saps otherwise known as The Great British Public…

Thus the Government (weakly opposed by the “we can run workhouses better” fake Opposition) can remove the various restrictions without having to admit to having got it wrong for 2 years, and without having to impliedly admit that the “panicdemic” was also —largely, not entirely— a “scamdemic”, and the measures taken for other reasons.

Southend West by-election

I have already blogged briefly about the upcoming by-election at Southend West, set down for 3 February 2022: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2022/01/13/diary-blog-13-january-2022/.

Seems that the latest news is that canvassers for the Conservative Party have been met with “a wall of disapproval” never previously encountered. That may mean a very low turnout as people “vote with their feet”. They cannot vote for any credible alternative because they have been denied that option.

The System parties have decided that, as with the Jo Cox assassination, the David Amess incident must be marked by the voters being denied a proper choice at the by-election, leaving standing only the “Conservative” Party candidate and a ragbag of small and/or joke parties and independents.

It will be interesting to see what proportion of the vote will go to Steve Laws (UKIP), who is somewhat known, by reason of his monitoring of, and tweeting about, the cross-Channel migration-invasion. He seems to be the front runner after the “Conservative” woman, though Catherine Blaiklock (English Democrats) may get quite a few votes.

I doubt whether Jayda Fransen (standing as Independent) will do well, but perhaps the Southend West voters will confound me.

Southend is not an area I know. I have been there, though only for an hour or so, and long ago, in 1977 or 1978.

I had returned from a youthful misadventure in Rhodesia, aged 20-21, and had signed up for a temporary job doing various kinds of casual work. One such, for a few days, was travelling around London delivering booze to various places as the driver’s mate, hauling crates around.

I remember that one destination was Pentonville Prison (for the guards), a cavalry barracks in Hounslow (the Sergeant’s Mess), and a bingo hall in some concrete town in Essex (Basildon? I forget now). Also, to what was either the Conservative Club, or the Naval and Military Club, Southend-on-Sea.

I remember that the Club to which we delivered was on a kind of bluff or clifftop overlooking the sea. There was a greensward between the Club and the clifftop. A tree growing there too (a monkeypuzzle tree? Or is that my memory inventing something?).

The sun was just setting over the sea, and that, together with the Union Jack on a flagpole, rendered the scene somehow elegiac. The Evening Hymn and Last Post might have been fitting.

Looking now at Google Maps and Google Earth, I think that that club was “Naval and Military” rather than “Conservative”. The latter seems to have been in a less pleasant setting in the middle of the town, and to have closed permanently a few years ago, a function of the declining membership of the Conservative Party: https://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/16385600.southend-conservative-club-close-doors-final-time/.

I remember the day mentioned partly because, having launched a crate of Scotch down a wooden chute to the cellar from the street, it had unfortunately slid down far too fast, and right into the gammy leg of the steward, who let out a few oaths that were certainly blue, and possibly naval, though not necessarily Conservative.

Thanks to the incredible resources now available via Google, Google Earth etc, I have just tracked down the place: Naval and Military Club, 20 Royal Terrace, Southend-on-Sea.

[Naval and Military Club, Southend-on-Sea]

Still going, it seems.

I have just been looking at some photos of Southend. Not terribly pleasant-looking overall. In a way surprising that it is a Conservative Party stronghold.

In fact, that seems not as clearcut as the election results for Southend West and other other local constituency (Rochford and Southend East) would suggest. Quite a high level of poverty, and the Southend local council is a non-Conservative minority-coalition administration, with little more than a third of all councillors Conservatives (20 out of 51).

The well-known anti-poverty campaigner and creator of recipes made on a shoestring, “Jack” Monroe, aka “the Bootstrap Cook”, is from Southend: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Monroe.

I notice that the local newspaper report on the closure of the Conservative Club in 2018 reported that Southend “is not safe at night“…

BBC “News”

This morning, watched, for the first time in a while, a whole half-hour of BBC TV news. Of the 30 minutes, about 20 mins was given over to the idiot posing as Prime Minister, and as to whether he broke his own ludicrous “Covid” “rules” or “laws”. Then we had 5 minutes about Ukraine and the possibility of invasion by Russian forces. A strange disproportion, to my mind: 20 mins about the idiot at Downing Street, and his cake and wine, but only 5 mins about the possibility (I would think probability) of (more) war in Ukraine.

The remaining 5 mins was mostly the weather report and forecast, the most accurate part of the whole broadcast.

The bit about Ukraine was mostly devoted to someone called James Nixey, an expert from the Chatham House think tank formerly (and surely better-) called the Royal Institute of International Affairs [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chatham_House].

I have little quarrel with what the said Nixey had to say, though it did not tell me anything that I did not already know (but then the news broadcasts are supposedly for the population as a whole).

I noticed that Nixey had on the bookshelves behind him (at his home, apparently, at Pangbourne) a couple of books which I myself have; I saw one about George Blake. https://www.chathamhouse.org/about-us/our-people/james-nixey; https://uk.linkedin.com/in/james-nixey-3621a710.

If true, it is one of the (very few) things “Boris” has done of which I approve wholeheartedly. Why lie about it? I would rather those innocent animals be rescued than many of the Afghans, some of whom hate us or despise us, and none of whom will ever be anything but a nuisance to us (at best). If “Madame Boris” (Carrie Johnson) got him to do it, well, never mind. It is the sort of thing a “first lady” should do— exercise compassionate influence.

Personal sanctions may be inconvenient to Putin (and those close to him) but they will not change his intent for a second. What is happening now around Ukraine is not the impetuous policy-on-the-hoof of the part-Jews David Cameron-Levita and Nicholas Sarkozy, when they stupidly decided to help the Libyan rebels in 2012. This is a long-considered and carefully worked-out plan by Putin, the Russian General Staff or Stavka, and the intelligence services, especially the GRU.

Putin and others see the Ukraine situation in the light of the 1100 years of conjoined close connection between Russia and Ukraine more than the 30 years of shambolic Ukrainian independence. They see it as a matter of territorial integrity (of the Slavonic heartlands), and also as a matter of existential national survival; they want a dead stop to NATO installing advanced weapons in Ukraine (and Poland, and the Baltic states).

What now? I myself would expect, as blogged recently, there to be an invasion at least of the Eastern part of Ukraine, and probably Kiev area too. I would expect the Spetsnaz forces of the Stavka, perhaps partly undercover, to create chaos in Kiev and some other key cities and non-urban locations first, before tanks roll in. and before the skies are full of descending parachutes.

I doubt that Russian forces plan to occupy anywhere much west of the Dnieper. Putin would rather install a pro-Russian Ukrainian government in Kiev, which would at least try to control the western part of Ukraine, while allowing the eastern part to exercise (pro-Russian) near-autonomy.

Russia gains little or nothing by delay. Every day that passes now makes a potential invasion or “incursion” slightly more difficult for Russian forces.

The Soviet Union always had awesome capabilities for swift mass deployment of forces (eg in Afghanistan), especially by air, and Russia’s newly-upgraded forces still have that, as far as I can see. The main reason that Russia did not simply invade a week or more ago was probably that Putin needed to “condition” the European states and the USA to the idea of Russian incursion, so as to obviate a sudden “Cuban Missile Crisis” situation developing.

Now, Putin can be sure that all that the NATO core states (really just USA and UK) will do is to impose blah-blah “sanctions” on Russia and its leaders. No attempt at direct military parrying. Biden has said as much. As for “Boris”, he is just a spectator, really.

Putin would probably prefer to “win without war”, in the famous phrase of Sun-Tzu, but it seems doubtful that the Kiev government will give him what he wants (though the Kiev leaders do seem to be disenchanted with the USA’s lukewarm support, so there is a slight possibility).

As said previously, I doubt that Russian forces would invade, or need to invade, more than a few miles west of Kiev. Mostly in the eastern part of the country, where there are several million ethnic-Russian civilians living.

Also, Russia will try to work psychologically on the Ukrainian population, mainly in Kiev and east of the Dnieper. Anxiety, maybe panic etc. If unexpected sabotage etc takes place, the countdown has begun.

I would expect the storm to break, if it does, within a week or so of today.

[Hermitage (formerly, Winter Palace), St. Petersburg, Russia]

On this day a year ago

In that year-ago blog post, I saw a few things that now make me laugh all over again, like the very true assertion, contained in a tweet from one of the huge number of Twitter accounts now closed down by the online censors: “Leftism is when you think the best way to stick it to your boss is to ensure he has an unending supply of cheap imported labor..”

Quite. In a nutshell. That Twitter account was American, but it applies just as well here in the UK. Those (eg the “refugees welcome” dimwits) who think that you can have unlimited or almost unlimited mass immigration, yet still have a high-income, high-skilled economy (and also a properly-funded Welfare State), are just completely wrongheaded.

I myself never use “Right”, Left” terminology in any sense which confers legitimacy upon it.

The only extra point to add (and only necessary because there is so much deliberate misinformation around, especially on Twitter) is that many of the migrant-invaders entering the UK will never enter the UK workforce as such, because they not only have no usable skills, meaning skills useful in an advanced economy, but also either speak no English at all, or only at the most basic level (and in many cases never will).

In other words, mass immigration creates a huge drag on the society and economy; you could even call it a millstone around our collective neck.

Of course, the self-describing “Left” have pretty much given up any struggle to create a better society. They have no ideology (beyond vague “anti-racism”, “anti-sexism” etc) which might underpin such a struggle. Socialism in the old sense more or less died in and after 1989, the last significant year of the 1956-1989 ~33-year cycle. What is left is effectively worthless, a farrago of mixed-up nonsense, not only ideologically vague, but practically confused.

The above example about mass immigration is just one example of the confusion. Another is about free speech online. The virtue-signallers of the self-describing “Left” almost all celebrate the removal of social-national Twitter accounts such as mine (rubbed out in 2018 after a conspiracy by a pack of Zionist Jews); the same virtue-signallers celebrate equally the removal of Twitter accounts belonging to so-called “alt-Right” figures such as Katie Hopkins, and those of dissidents such as David Icke.

The “online fora” (Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, ebay etc) are of course all run and actually owned by hugely wealthy companies (and individuals, mostly Jews), but the self-describing “Left” has nothing to say about all that, still less any plan to change the structure; for them, all that matters is that “fascists” (those with whom they disagree) are removed from having any online “platform” (where they might enjoy freedom of expression).

They just do not see that what has happened is that they, and those like them, are now contained in a big gilded cage, where they can squawk endlessly about “racism”, “sexism” etc while having not the slightest real impact on the world.

The same kind of dissonance as over immigration is seen in the attitude of the same people about Palestine, Israel, and the Jewish situation in the world. They (most of them) oppose Israel as a state, and go halfway toward such ideas as “BDS” (economic boycotts of Israel, and avoidance of Israeli products etc), but the majority of them are still brainwashed by the whole “holocaust” farrago, and almost all of them no doubt think that the disastrous and destructive war against the German Reich was A Very Good Thing. Few would see a problem in the fact that exploitative Jewish control of economies, legal systems, political systems permeates what might be called “the Western world”, our world.

Even when they see fraudulent Jewish exploiters such as Philip Green, Robert Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein and others, those self-describing “Left” people see only finance-capitalists…

As Goethe put it in Faust, and from the mouth of Mephistopheles, “the good folk do not see the Devil, even when he sits on their shoulder.” The “Leftists” see only the part of the narrative that fits in with their pre-1989 ideology.

You saw all of the above in the UK Labour Party’s Corbyn and McDonnell double-act: Corbyn with his skeletal “ideology” composed of elements taken, half-baked, from 20thC history, such as the so-called “Battle of Cable Street”, selected and half-understood bits from the Spanish Civil War (“!No Pasaran” etc), anti-Israel support for Palestine, yet at the same time his lip-service to the “holocaust” farrago, and of course “anti-fascism”. As clunky as a Trabant.

Both “sides” of the Labour Party offer nothing to the British people (though neither does this shambolic “Conservative” government, of course).

Unusual travelogue

That YouTube account, though slightly irritating at times, is usually quite interesting. The subtitles are rubbish, but you don’t need to know Russian: mostly English commentary.

As for BAM (Baikal-Amur-Mainline), it was once said, by dissidents, that every Soviet generation had its large and, they claimed, not very useful, engineering project: inter alia, the White Sea Canal, the Turk-Sib railway, the Virgin Lands scheme, and BAM. True, but some of those are at least not useless, and some are also very impressive.

“Thought for the day”

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools
:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

[Kipling, If]

Once again, we see the impact one individual can have on a large-scale problem. The newspaper report is well worth reading.

Both major System parties are basically, and putting it politely, two faces of the same coin.

Only social nationalism has even a chance of saving anything worthwhile in Britain, but there is no social-national party worthy of the name, let alone any social-national movement.

If the State, controlled secretly by inner ruling circles and cabals, turns against the people, then the people have the inherent right to fight back, using whatever methods are expedient.

A few more thoughts about Ukraine

Any Russian incursion into Eastern Ukraine would have been bloodless, but will now not be, partly because the corrupt Kiev regime will probably try to resist, despite the vast bulk of the Eastern Ukraine population favouring Russia.

The arms and money (and “advisers”) from the UK and —mainly— USA being sent to Ukraine contain the seeds of a wider conflict, because any large-scale resistance by the Kiev government will probably result in retaliation against it by Russian forces. That might include massive attack on Kiev itself. Whether that will result in American direct involvement remains to be seen, though I doubt that the USA has the will to fight Russia directly, on the ground.

Eastern Ukraine was part of the Russo-Slavonic polity for over a thousand years. It was under Muscovite control for hundreds of years. The present corrupt, and basically Jew-dominated, Ukraine, has only been around for 29-30 years as a (failed) state. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Ukraine.

Without interference from outside, Eastern Ukraine would fall under Russian control as willingly as Austria joined with the German Reich in 1938.

As for the USA, does it have the will to put its own safety on the line for the Kiev regime? I doubt it. Biden’s recent statement was a nod and wink to Russia that this will not cause a superpower conflict (if Russia still counts as a superpower…perhaps not, but near enough!).

Yes, the USA probably does have many times the military-destructive power of Russia, but the fact is that Russia could still annihilate most if not all American cities if it so chose, albeit at a like cost. You can only wipe out a city once, no matter how many and how powerful are your nuclear weapons.

As for political leadership, Biden seems to have some form of dementia. If he had to resign, the government of the USA would be, at least nominally, in the hands of part-black, part-Indian, part (small part) Irish, Kamala Harris, but one can assume that the “deep state”, i.e. the secret cabals and ruling circles, would continue to pull the strings. NWO, if you like, and “ZOG”.

Russia looks like it is about to make a big move on the geopolitical chessboard.

Yes, the “panicdemic” has only partly succeeded in corralling the public worldwide, and only partly in the UK as well. Suddenly, “Covid” “restrictions” are going to be stood down, only weeks after the latest scam propaganda over “Omicron”, and how hundreds of thousands would be filling NHS hospitals. All lies.

However, the repressive laws will mostly still be there, ready to be used and indeed repurposed, any time that the “secret state” decides.

Yes, Gates was investing in vaccines over a year before the “panicdemic” started (or was started)…

In looking at recent UK governments, it is always a battle between malice and sheer incompetence…

A preliminary look at the upcoming Erdington by-election

The sitting MP for Birmingham Erdington, Jack Dromey, having died, there will be a by-election at some point, probably in March or April.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham_Erdington_(UK_Parliament_constituency)

I shall blog in detail later, when the candidates have been declared. For the moment, it is possible to sketch only outlines.

Birmingham Erdington is considered a safe Labour seat, though not quite rock-solid now. The last non-Labour candidate was elected in 1936 (Conservative Party).

The lowest Labour vote since 1983 was recorded in 2010 (41.8%). However, that vote increased to 45.6% in 2015, then 58% in 2017, before slipping back a little to 50.3% in 2019. Dromey was first elected in 2010.

As for the Conservative Party vote-share, its high-water mark was back in 1931 (68.1%). It was closest to success (since the pre-WW2 era) in 1983, when Labour, with 39.8%, narrowly beat the Conservative candidate (39.2%), a majority of only 231 votes.

During the Blair era, the Conservative vote slumped well below 30%, but has recovered since: 32.6 % in 2010, 30.8% in 2015, 38.4% in 2017, and 40.1% in 2019.

In 2019, Brexit Party put up a candidate who scored 4.1%. While one cannot say that that 4.1% would otherwise have voted Con, it is more likely than not, putting the Conservatives maybe within a couple of points of Labour. However, recent opinion polling has shown that Conservative Party support, nationwide, has been sliding.

The potential level for any social-national candidate is hard to gauge, but in view of the fact that there presently exists no credible social-national party in the UK, my assessment of the likelihood even of a saved deposit for any candidate of that type is low. The BNP achieved 5.1% and a saved deposit in 2010, and achieved that, moreover, despite the existence of both UKIP (2.4%) and National Front (0.6%) candidates. Had only the BNP stood, then it is possible that its vote might have totalled over 8%, and —who knows?— even over 10%. Still modest, of course.

UKIP, not social-national but somewhat (conservative-) nationalist, achieved a creditable third place on 17.4% of the votes cast in 2015.

This is not Liberal Democrat territory. The LibDems have lost their deposit in every election since 2010 (16.2%).

I imagine that the by-election will attract a host of minor and joke candidates.

In years past, there would been little point in blogging about a by-election such as this. However, this time it is worth speculating about, and then seeing the result. The interest lies in seeing whether former Labour voters’ apathy, and/or dislike of Keir Starmer and/or Labour generally (with its pro-mass immigration stance and “Covid” obsession) can result in a great upset.

Labour is sliding fast in the affections of the voters, but so is the Conservative Party, which talks big on immigration yet not only does nothing to stop it but is actually inviting millions of Hong Kong Chinese to live here, is inviting tens of thousands of Afghans to live here, and has done absolutely nothing to prevent the cross-Channel migration-invasion.

This looks like being a straight Conservative-Labour fight. I cannot see the LibDems mounting a successful third-party bid. At the moment, I should say that Labour are still favourites, but only just. I do not rule out an upset.

Labour Party in the Cold War

I am reading Against the Cold War; the nature and traditions of pro-Soviet sentiment in the British Labour Party 1945-89, by one Darren G. Lilleker.

A fairly interesting book-length study (a doctoral thesis), but I have already found flaws in the bit I have read so far, such as:

Lee, identified as Will Owen, was solely
interested in financial reward. According to
[Josef] Frolik he demanded free holidays and money
and in return passed information of the “highest importance.,… This description of Owen
seems somewhat dubious, Owen was not party to important information, and the fact that
he was acquitted from a treason charge on the 9th May 1970 substantiates these doubts
.”

Well, Owen was tried at the Bailey, true, but not on a charge of treason (in the strict legal sense). The charge was one of “communicating secrets” contrary to the Official Secrets Act.

Notes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Owen#Secrets_trial; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josef_Frol%C3%ADk.

A basic error like that is not one that I should expect to see in the thesis of a Ph.D. candidate, frankly. There are already noticed one or two similar errors. Also, one is acquitted of (or maybe on) a charge, not “from“. Also, it is claimed, in the thesis, that the MP John Stonehouse was engaging in homosexual behaviour (which laid him open to blackmail by Czech Intelligence, though his main motivation for spying was financial).

The money aspect, yes, but is the other true, or not? Wikipedia mentions nothing of it [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stonehouse]. There have been two books on Stonehouse published in the past year; neither (judging from reviews) mentions the “gay” allegations.

Still, I am continuing to read Lilleker’s thesis, which I am finding interesting, overall.

Addendum: the thesis was successful, and the candidate got his (2001) Ph.D. Twenty years on, that candidate is Professor Lilleker of Bournemouth University, no less: https://staffprofiles.bournemouth.ac.uk/display/dlilleker#overview; https://staffprofiles.bournemouth.ac.uk/display/dlilleker#affiliations.

As for the thesis, it was published as a book, apparently (in 2004): https://staffprofiles.bournemouth.ac.uk/display/dlilleker#publications. I see that used copies in hardback (I rarely buy paperbacks) are as little as £3 on Amazon. I may buy one.

Incidentally, I blogged briefly about Stonehouse last year, when the books about him came out: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/07/17/diary-blog-17-july-2021/.

I should like to believe that the British public would do better, but I do wonder…in the new multikulti “British” land, ignorance is bliss, quite often.

Were we in the USA, we might know a great deal about the composition of the jury, and also about why the jurors decided the matter thus, but since the passing of the Juries Act 1974 [as amended], most of that is not permitted: see https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1974/23/section/20D#:~:text=%5BF120DOffence%3A%20disclosing%20jury’s%20deliberations&text=(2)A%20person%20guilty%20of,a%20fine%20(or%20both).

My guess? Most of the jury was composed of a mixture of blacks, other non-Europeans, and persons of a generally Labour Party bent. There was no need for a majority direction from the trial judge, so either all jurors voted for acquittal, or most did and the few preferring conviction changed their minds and went along with that.

Of course, I saw through Boris Johnson long ago, about 20 years ago. Unfortunately, I am forced by Fate to be merely (at least so far) a private citizen-blogger. Frankly, and if I myself say it that shouldn’t, I would be a far better head of government than Boris Johnson. Admittedly, many people might echo my words, and with justice.

Kazakhstan

Land controlled by the Republic of Kazakhstan shown in dark green.

I was not intending to blog about the present upheaval in Kazakhstan. It is —tempus fugit!— now 24 years since I lived there (I was there for a year), and I have already blogged about some aspects of my own time there, en passant, several times. However, a few words…

Kazakhstan, when I went there, was all but unknown to the UK public. Even educated members of the Bar whom I knew asked “where exactly is that?” when I said that I would be living there.

Despite being the 9th-largest state in the world, more than 11x the size of the whole UK, Kazakhstan was almost invisible to most British people. That is less true today, though most people still know little about it.

At one time, from the 1920s to the early 1990s, Kazakhstan’s population was 20%-45% Russian, peaking at well over 40% in the 1970s. Even when I was there (1996-97), Russians were over 30% of the population, and probably more in the then capital and largest city, Almaty, where I lived.

By reason of Stalin’s mass deportations from other areas of the Soviet Union, there were numerous other ethnic groups in Kazakhstan up until the 1990s (they are still there but in far smaller numbers): Volga Germans, Jews, Ukrainians, Crimean Tartars, Turks and Koreans (former residents of Soviet areas bordering those countries) etc. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazakhstan#Demographics.

In the 1990s, Russians started to leave, as “Kazakhization” proceeded. Jews left for Israel. Germans left for Germany. Kazakhstan is now about 65%-70% Kazakh.

Russians were the backbone of Kazakhstan as a civilized and advanced country. The Kazakhs I myself met were (mostly) very pleasant, tolerant people, but badly-led and, after all, basically non-European. Before the late 19th Century, Kazakhs were still all nomadic. Most of them still were as late as the 1930s.

Russia gave the Kazakhs everything modern, from roads and rail, and medical services, and cities, to nuclear poison and labour camps…a mixed picture…

Kazakhstan was once called, informally —and dangerously—, Kazekstan, “zek” being a slang term for a prisoner.

The Russians, in the 19thC, established a fort at a place in the foothills of the Tien Shan mountains, a place they called Verny. There was founded a small town, later called Alma-Ata (“Father of Apples” in Kazakh). When I lived there, there were still a few small apple orchards in the hills within the city limits rapidly being developed into residential and office neighbourhoods.

Alma-Ata became (I have no idea why) “Almaty”, a name both Russians and Kazakhs found odd and somehow funny (they told me).

The few at the top after 1991 effectively stole everything, something that was obvious to me when I lived there. The “elected” dictator, Nazarbaev (resigned recently), was, even in 1996, said (by Fortune magazine) to be the 5th-wealthiest individual on Earth. The oil and gas and other riches under the ground went mainly to him and then to his clan, family, friends and contacts (and to Western oil, gas, and mining companies). Nazarbaev was the first Kazakh leader (even in Soviet times) who had no descent from Genghiz Khan; he was never fully accepted by many Kazakhs.

The Soviet government had tried, in the late 1980s, to install a non-Kazakh, a Russian, as leader. Riots killed hundreds.

I am sorry to see the bloodshed in Kazakhstan, but the country needs a new start.

Whatever happens (or is said to have happened) with “Omicron”, the “panicdemic” narrative will continue to be pushed. The endgame has nothing to do with public heath, and certainly nothing to do with any supposed huge “danger” to the public, or the world. It is all to do with the next stage in the conspiracy— the microchipping of effectively the entire population of the world.

Stray thought

Looking at the film (from 1974, though the music dates from 1959), no-one in that film could have imagined that the DDR/East Germany would pass into history only 15 years (officially 16) later. Even when I spent a couple of days in the DDR in 1988, the regime seemed to be in full control, though there was to me a strange feeling about the place (I was in the seemingly almost depopulated Southwest and Southeast), a feeling that —despite all the trappings of a state— this was a kind of facade. I suppose that the feeling might be summed up as “where are all the people?”…

We imagine that a set-up like the UK will go on almost forever, and certainly not disappear or be radically changed within a few years. I’m not so sure of that.

Quite right. That Maguire idiot is a typical System-Labour drone. No ideas about how to improve society, no proper analysis of current events, just kneejerk tribal Labourism and politically-correct infantilism, while coining as much money as possible from scribbling and being a TV talking head. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Maguire_(journalist). Oh, and of course he tends to play the “gritty and disillusioned Northerner” on Sky News newspaper reviews etc, while actually living rather comfortably in affluent Richmond, South West London (when not at his holiday home) with his (privately-educated) journalist/novelist wife: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_Burstall.

Labour

I return again to the question of the prospects of the Labour Party now that its leadership is totally controlled (once more) by the Jew-Zionist element.

The most recent opinion polling:

Image

I recently examined the North Shropshire by-election in this regard, inter alia. This is what I wrote on the blog:

Since North Shropshire was re-dedicated in 1983, and until the by-election, Labour has failed to come in second only four times, and only once (2010) since 1992.

It is all very well to talk about tactical voting, or Labour supporters “lending their votes” to the LibDem in order to beat the Con candidate. Yes; no argument on that, but is that the whole story? The 9.7% scored in the by-election was the lowest Labour vote ever in North Shropshire. Even in 1983, at the height of Thatcherism, and when Labour suffered its crushing national defeat under Michael Foot [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_United_Kingdom_general_election], it still scored 14.7% (third place) in North Shropshire.

The conclusion must be that, while many formerly Labour votes went tactically (or otherwise) to the LibDem, many Labour voters just voted with their feet, if such be the bon mot, and stayed home. Labour scored 22.1% in 2019, and 31.1% in 2017 (both under Corbyn) in the constituency.

If this by-election result is bad for Boris-idiot, it is arguably at least as great a blow for Labour’s Jewish-lobby leadership under Keir Starmer. The problem is not just the “Israel first” aspect of Labour’s present leadership, but also the way in which the supposed “Opposition” keeps propping up “Boris” over various matters, such as the Online Harms Bill and, of more immediate political importance, the Covid/Omicron “panicdemic” “rules” and “laws”.

No-one really can have expected Labour to win the by-election, but to fall below 10% is a straw in the wind that (in my view) is significant.” See https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/12/17/diary-blog-17-december-2021-including-analysis-of-the-north-shropshire-by-election-result/.

Starmer-Labour may be doing well in the opinion polls now (is that a surprise, looking at the Boris-idiot disaster?) but we all know how volatile polls can be, and how inaccurate, especially a year or two before any general election.

It may well be that, were “Boris” to be dumped, the Conservative Party might recover ground, despite its lack of credible leadership candidates.

Labour’s basic problem remains, as seen in the graphic below, showing voter migration from the 2017 General Election to the 2019 election:

Labour’s problem is not how popular the Conservatives are (they are not, and were not even in 2019), but in how unpopular Labour is, resulting not so much in voters moving to the Conservatives, but in former Labour voters either voting for minor protest parties, or voting tactically for LibDems but, more than either of those options, simply not bothering to vote.

Look at North Shropshire: former Labour voters either voted tactically for the LibDems, or stayed home and/or did not vote for Labour anyway.

A far less significant, but still interesting, election, a local one, has just happened not far from where I myself live:

Local elections, with their small electorate, smaller turnout, and often huge swings based on local factors, are hard to forecast at times, as can be seen from the Britain Elects pre-poll analysis: https://www.britainelects.com/2021/12/23/previewing-the-last-council-by-election-of-the-year-23-dec-2021/. Still, look at the result.

The Conservative Party vote was previously around 72%, but now has fallen to 18.5%, and a poor third place. Look at Labour’s result, too; a fall from nearly 28% to 4.2%, and (as usual) last place.

A local by-election result of that sort is, at best, a small straw in the wind, but does indicate the disdain in which both main parties are held by the voting public. It looks as if the former Conservative voters mostly voted for the Independent (a local farmer and former Conservative Party county councillor), while the former Labour vote migrated to the Green Party (which was not in the last election). As for the LibDems, they seem to have been unable to find a candidate at all.

It is a matter of speculation to what extent such a local election is affected by national political factors, but I do not think that those national factors can be entirely discounted.

Labour may be favoured in recent national opinion polling, but I am sceptical as to whether it really can pull a rabbit out of the hat and achieve a Commons majority in 2022, 2023, or 2024.

North Shropshire results for the Labour Party were 31.1% in 2017, 22.1% in 2019, and 9.7% in 2021: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Shropshire_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s.

What about that other celebrated 2021 by-election, at Chesham and Amersham? Yes, the LibDems took the formerly considered safe Conservative seat, as at North Shropshire; the Labour results for the constituency, though, are again very striking: in 2017, 20.6%; in 2019, 12.9%, then a collapse in 2021 to only 1.6%: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chesham_and_Amersham_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s.

Same direction of travel— a collapse in the Labour vote. True, not directly significant, in that neither seat has ever been won by Labour. However, similar decline elsewhere, in seats where Labour has succeeded in the past, could all but finish Labour as a party of government.

Of course, those who control the System do not care which of the two main System parties wins, because both parties are part of the System.

As always, I believe that a credible social-national movement —and party— could rise up, to all but annihilate the System parties; but, as always, I have to note that no such party presently exists.

A good but arguable point.

Ellwood is a sinister character.

Twin

Watched the start of Norwegian crime/drama series, Twin [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin_(TV_series)]. Slightly underwhelming; probably not quite my sort of crime drama, and the bleak Norwegian Atlantic winter (I presume) scenery I find depressing.

The oddest aspect of that series is that here we are in some remote part of Norway, and one of the detectives from the local town is an African! I know that Norway, like much of Europe, has seen a massive influx (invasion), but surely this is just grotesque? In fact, there were two more non-Europeans, one an (?) Indian woman, and also a small child whose supposed parents were both Norwegians. Why? How? No explanation offered.

Seems that the Coudenhove-Kalergi propaganda is not confined to UK TV shows…

“Boris”-idiot

Saw this by Guardian writer John Crace. Not sure of the date, but it is very good as a summary, obvious though it is:

 “…Boris Johnson. If he has a talent, it’s a talent for lying. And while it may have cost him countless relationships and friendships, it has taken him all the way to Downing Street. Put simply, he has become prime minister by lying better than all the other contenders for the job. But now he has run out of road and the lies have caught up with him. He’s the cartoon villain hopelessly spinning his legs before plunging into the abyss. Brexit has failed to deliver any of its promised rewards, and inflation, at more than 5%, is far higher than wage growth. No matter how Boris tries to spin it, people are feeling more broke by the week.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Crace_(writer)#Views]

National Service

Many of the Twitter-twits highly agitato because some Daily Telegraph scribbler has floated the idea of reintroducing “National Service” (I believe that the “Royal Cuck” has mentioned it in the past).

My view? First of all, that National Service, which ran, in the usual meaning, from 1948 to 1960 (the last such conscripts were demobilized in 1963) was not a hugely effective or cost-effective thing from the point of view of the Army (which used the bulk of the manpower). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conscription_in_the_United_Kingdom#After_1945

These days, it is considered necessary to train soldiers for six months or more before they are much use in action. Thus, to train millions of young men, only to release them from their obligation a year or 18 months later, is very wasteful.

Secondly, the pushback from those unwillingly recruited, then demobbed, may have been one fact fuelling the decadence of the 1960s.

Thirdly, Britain, even in the 1950s, had both an empire, albeit one being dismantled, and an enemy (the Warsaw Pact bloc, or SovBloc) which also had huge numbers of men under arms and was thought to pose a credible invasion threat to all of Western Europe.

You cannot compare the 1950s to today. It follows that, as things stand, I should not like to see National Service reintroduced. Actually, I very nearly had to do the Australian equivalent, having lived there from 1967, aged 10, to late 1969, aged 13. The SEATO Treaty then in force meant that Australian (and New Zealand) forces were fighting in Vietnam on the American side. At age 18, from late 1974, I would have been subject, possibly, to conscription, but as things turned out, my family returned to the UK before the end of 1969, and in any case Australian forces in Vietnam were slowly reduced from 1970; the last few “advisers” left Vietnam in 1974: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_history_of_Australia_during_the_Vietnam_War.

It makes me laugh, though, to see the Twitter-twits attacking Britain in the 1950s. They all seem to have three points, which might be summarized as “blacks were badly treated”, “gays were badly treated”, and “food was terrible” (because of rationing, in part).

In fact, while gay activities were unlawful, it seems that the laws were not heavy-handedly enforced; some areas (eg Soho, in London) were notorious for such activity.

As to blacks, well despite what present-day msm propaganda (eg in dramas such as Grantchester etc) portrays, there were almost no blacks (or browns) in England then, with the exception of a few ports and a few parts of London. The Empire Windrush had scarcely disembarked its passengers, and they had only just started to breed.

I myself can only remember seeing one black person in the UK before 1969, and that was an NHS consultant (ENT) at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, circa 1962.

Food rationing (a result of the terrible and completely unnecessary war against the German Reich from 1939-1945), lasted, in part, until 1954, true (and in most respects was harsher in the few years after the end of that war, because Britain was badly-damaged economically), but rapidly ceased to be part of everyday life during the 1950s. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationing_in_the_United_Kingdom; and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationing_in_the_United_Kingdom#Timeline.

Other aspects of life in the 1950s compare badly to life today: the lack of central heating in most houses would be one such. On the other hand, the UK population was about 55 million, compared to maybe 70 million today. The countryside was uncrowded and had hugely more wildlife (overall) than now, there was incomparably less crime (especially violent crime) in the UK, society was more stable, less volatile, and children could generally wander safely around the countryside (as I did, though a few years later, in the early/mid 1960s, both on foot and bicycle, the number of cars being only a fraction of the number filling the roads of England today). There were very few non-Europeans around.

Either way, it hardly matters now; “we are where we are“…

There is another point: society needs public landmarks, buildings (and monuments); landmarks which are for specifically public purposes: local government, courts, libraries, religious buildings, museums. This is of importance in maintaining the actual structure of society, and the buildings and other constructions should be grand, or even grandiose.

I have blogged about her elsewhere. Poses as a knowledgeable medical doctor; seems that she trained as a doctor, and qualified, but if she ever worked as one, it was not for long (her Twitter profile has now been changed, I think, to reflect that). Seems to want to get into politics, and operates a supposedly pro-NHS pressure group, selling useless cloth facemasks: https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/officers/oo7DBvRUxACeoj5M_VGXeKOtS_Y/appointments; https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/11695500/filing-history.

Makes her little child wear a facemask even when in a park or other open space. Seems mentally unstable.

More information: looks as if the lady doctor in question has in fact never actually practised medicine, nor does she even hold a licence to practise, yet Sky News has her on as a “doctor” who knows all about “Covid” etc!…Sky News should not be publicizing this crank: see https://www.everydoctor.org.uk/team.

Regular readers of the blog will know how sceptical I am about doctors who become (actual or wannabee) politicians (or, indeed, who become barristers, as have a few I have encountered in the past).

Arguably typical of many of the London msm; hugely well-paid (overpaid), hugely politically-correct. He may have a few redeeming features. At least he reported from Gaza during one of the Israeli bloodbaths.

I myself saw the Channel 4 newsroom at the ITN centre (it moved to a different address later) a couple of times, but that was in late 1984, about 6 years before Jon Snow became news anchor. When I was there (as a mere visitor, nothing to do with any particular story), the anchorman was Peter Sissons, now deceased [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Sissons].

I recall how different Sissons looked, compared to his on-screen persona, when seated at his desk preparing for the broadcast (I think he was on air at 1900 hrs, about 20 mins after I first saw him). Rather, if not very, fat in body, and rather disagreeable-looking, though the latter may have been simply Sissons concentrating hard on his upcoming appearance. I had no reason to speak to him, and did not.

Interesting to see a place like that. There was a feeling (not quite corresponding to reality, perhaps) of being at the hub of world events. Apart from the feeling of suppressed urgency just before the news was broadcast (the actual studio was somewhere else nearby), there was one girl, a few yards away, on the telephone to the Defence Minister of Nicaragua, another calling some VIP in Washington and, where I was sitting on my first visit, a TV with a very clear feed from the Soviet evening news from Moscow (today, that would be nothing, and a private person can probably get that via satellite TV, but back then it was novel to see).

I was just looking at Snow’s underwhelming academic and pre-Channel 4 background: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Snow_(journalist).

Incredibly, Snow was paid, at one time, over £1.25M a year: https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/life/1221226/Jon-Snow-channel-4-net-worth; since then a slightly more modest £1M a year….

What on Earth justifies that kind of pay? I see that Peter Sissons had, apart from his home in Kent, a holiday home on Barbados, according to Wikipedia. There is a general problem with ludicrously high pay (for sometimes rather mediocre people —not referring to Sissons or even Snow specifically—) in the UK msm.

So that it can be presented as a “we’re all in this together” fake “community” campaign, rather than an outrider of the coming biosecurity police state.

The “controlled opposition” quasi-msm. As to “Omicron”, the State is trying to whip up panic again. So far, over 200,000 “cases” (test results) in the UK, but not one fatality (the “Boris” lie-machine says that there has been one; one out of two hundred thousand…).

Despite the shambolic “Boris” mess at Downing Street, and despite the recent opinion polls, I cannot see fake “Labour” forming a government, so long as the misnamed Conservative Party ditches “Boris” fairly soon.

Labour offers even less than the present pack of clowns to the British people.

“Nudge” propaganda is bad enough, but when it is so inept, what can one say?

In fact, this is all to do with the c.33-year socio-political cycle: 1923, 1956, 1989, and now 2022. The transnational Western “conspiracy” or “consensus” is already trying to seize the agenda for the next third of a century, just as happened in the 1980s in the build-up to 1989.

In that case, in the 1980s, it will be recalled that a number of stage-setting scenarii occurred. In the Soviet Union, the more traditional “fossilized” leaders were replaced by the arch-Westernizer, Gorbachev and his people. Andropov, who wanted to, as people now say, “double down” on Sovietism, died (or was killed) in an event still not clear even today. Some reports say that a neighbour, a widow with a grudge, shot him, after which he died days later; the official version now is that Andropov died from natural but unexplained kidney failure: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuri_Andropov#Death_and_funeral.

Those of a certain age may recall the jokes about the generally very old Soviet leadership of the time: a pensioner wanting better living standards enters the Central Committee building in Old Square, Moscow. He tells the receptionist that he wants to join the Politburo. She answers “are you mad?!“. “Well, no…but I AM old, deaf, rather stupid…and don’t know a lot...”.

Gorbachev succeeded as de facto leader several years before the world-historic key year, 1989, itself.

The same sort of thing happened in the Vatican. After the very unexpected death of Pope John Paul I, the Polish Pope, John Paul II was elected. Although doctrinally conservative, he was in many respects a modernizer and, crucially, wanted to free Poland from control of the Soviet leadership.

It will also be recalled that President Bush senior took over in the USA after the 1988 election, and one of his first acts of importance was to make a speech in 1989 openly proclaiming the New World Order [NWO].

The 33-year cycle starting in in or about 1989 was characterized by the greater grip of the “Western” order or “NWO/ZOG”: the “fall of socialism” worldwide, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the de facto “capitalization” of China, the collapse of European-race rule in South Africa, and of course the waning power of the Arab/Muslim states, despite their continuing hydrocarbon assets and wealth.

The above also meant the domino effect applied to the states opposed to Israel. They have fallen, been suborned, or been neutered one by one.

Now we see the biosecurity police state, almost wordwide, coming into existence, using health as the pretext for extreme control of populations right down to the individual level: “virus” “passports” to travel, sometimes even internally and, almost certainly, and before too long, microchips implanted under the skin, in order to track the individual 24/7, anywhere in the world.

Having said all that, such plans are not always 100% successful. In the past few decades, a number of events parried the NWO/ZOG agenda: the partial recovery of Russia under Putin, the 1990s/2000s Arab/Muslim/Islamist “holy war” against “the West” (notably its attacks on New York City, the citadel of finance-capitalism); also the failure of the forces of NWO/ZOG to dislodge President Assad of Syria from power, and the continuing defiance of the Iranian state. Also, the internal failures of the finance-capitalist economic model: the dotcom bubble bursting, and the post-2008 banking crisis.

It may well be that events will happen also in the coming 33 years or so (exact dates are not so important) to prevent the complete victory of NWO/ZOG.

Jesus H. Christ! British people homeless, young people unable to buy or even rent homes, and these alien, useless and/or hostile millstones round the British neck are provided with everything by virtue-signalling System drones! The msm does not even protest about it, and the tame thick princeling “who would be king” makes virtue-signalling speeches supporting it. If he wants his future crown (if he ever has one) to stay on his head, he had better start to wake up…

Exactly. This whole pseudo-democratic charade is just a spectacle for (sadly, often) “moronic masses”, or to put it another way, at this time of year, a pantomime.

Exactly my experience over the past year. I have visited (not as patient) at least two hospitals, as well as a couple of medical centres. Deserted.

The System will not be alarmed until those crowds stop waving banners and start waving weapons.

There is no British nation now, just a host of compliant, virtue-signalling serfs, with occasional valiant resisters here and there, among no more than a quarter of the population, those who have seen through the scam.

Ecce “British journalism”, and controlled opposition, today…

and there never was any WW2 German plan to use gas as a weapon. Historical fact. The gasmasks were, like the facemask nonsense today, a tactic by the UK government, used to create fear and to enforce social and political obedience, at a time (1939-40) when a large minority, possibly majority, of the British population wanted peace with the German Reich.

As for that photo, it may be genuine, from the time between September 1939 and mid-1940 when the people were bombarded by fear propaganda, but it is probably itself part of that propaganda effort. People generally never actually wore the gasmasks issued.

Most MPs, mainstream journalists, TV presenters, and most other System figures, are now enemies of the British people.

and the British way of life died, not with a bang but with a whimper…[apologies to Nevil Shute].

I was just yesterday blogging about pathetic little would-be dictator, Nicola Sturgeon. She still talks about “travel across the border“, as though Scotland were really an independent country…

Social compliance is what is being taught to the future serfs of ZOG…

Exactly. When will the transnational conspiracy release the real pandemic, the “Omega” variant? That’s the one that will kill billions of people…and few will have any natural immunity to fight it.

The world may be approaching a crisis, but not because of “Covid” (which has only killed, even on faked or flawed statistics, about one individual in every four thousand in the whole world population).

How many people, how many billions, can the Earth sustain before that burden becomes too much for the Earth, which will then shrug and remove vast numbers of humans?

Another lunatic.

The facemask nonsense is a social-control mechanism and public relations move by an incompetent government which is, nonetheless, part of a transnational conspiracy.

They, like the facemask zealots, have gained the illusion of biosecurity…nothing more.

Yes, a real social-national party could achieve great support, but the (((controlled))) System would probably crush it at a fairly early stage one way or the other. It may be that there is no “electoral road” available to us, and so we need to take other action. Still, “all roads lead to Rome”…

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.
