Even a stopped clock is right once (or twice) daily
Depending on whether it is a standard clock or a 24-hour clock.
This seems to be a day in which I shall feature several people for whom I have rather little time usually. Still, why not, if I agree with them on specific issues or points?
I kick off with Ash Sarkar of Novara Media:
My assessment of Ash Sarkar’s (and others’) views more generally: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/01/disordered-and-infantile-people/; and https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/18/some-thoughts-about-venezuela-socialism-and-developing-a-more-advanced-society/.

Thus embedding Jewish-Zionist control of the Labour Party.
My assessment of Owen Jones can be found a few paragraphs below.
The “Luke Akehurst” there is a long-term Jewish-lobby and Israel-lobby asset in the Labour Party.
As I myself have frequently blogged, Labour now seems to stand for absolutely nothing except “we are not the Conservative Party” (though with 90% similar, where not exactly the same, policies). Tweedledum/tweedledee.
Energy delivery is a field where true competition does not exist and cannot exist. Other such industries would include most other utilities (such as water supply and effluent disposal), railways etc.
Again, I have little time for McDonnell, and I thought it funny that, after the 2019 General Election, he looked on TV, interviewed in his own garden, like a bemused pensioner who had been tipped out of his wheelchair. He had thought himself about to become Chancellor and, later, Prime Minister…
Still, he is right on one or two topics.
What is needed is not old-style socialism, but a revamped National Socialism, at least in part. The “anti-capitalist” tendency in the UK and across Europe could be turned to a pro-social nationalist one, given the right movement, leader, and events.
“Jack Foster, a 33-year-old bank worker from Salford, shows how lived experience has fed this disillusionment with capitalism. After he dropped out of university and worked in a call centre – a “horrible job” – the financial crash shaped his political attitudes, as they did for much of his generation. But housing loomed particularly large. “I was renting, thinking: ‘How will I ever be able to afford a house?’” he says. “My mum was a cleaner, my dad was disabled, and the people I knew who could afford a house got help off their parents. It wasn’t a case of having a job and saving up; you had to inherit money.”” [The Guardian].
“…rather than the “property-owning democracy” promised by Thatcherism, Britain looks more like a landlords’ paradise. By 2017, 40% of the homes flogged off [since 1980] under right to buy were owned by private landlords charging twice the rent of council properties. Indeed, in the space of two decades, the odds of a young adult on a middle income owning a home more than halved. These young people have been called generation rent, with about half of the under-35s in England renting in a private sector often defined by extortionate rents and insecurity.” [The Guardian].
“Rents in England take up approaching half of a tenants’ take-home pay, and an astonishing 74.8% in London, up one-third since the century began. And if millennials bet the house, so to speak, on a parental lifeboat, disappointment beckons: the typical inheritance age is between 55 and 64, and the median amount handed down is about £11,000, meaning half receive less.” [The Guardian].
“As the economist James Meadway warned in a recent article, entitled Generation Left Might Not Be That Left After All, populist rightwing answers to their disenchantment might cut through. In France, many young people have swung to the far right; in the UK, few are members of trade unions, which historically help craft anti-capitalist attitudes; while some classically rightwing sentiments coexist with leftish attitudes among many young people.” [The Guardian].
There it is. We, as social-national vanguard thinkers and activists, can capture this field.
“…it is clear that young people see no rational incentive to back a system that seems to offer little other than insecurity and crisis.” [The Guardian].
Not that I have much respect or liking for Owen Jones, who took it upon himself, about 6 or 7 years ago, to tweet to pro-Jewish-Lobby MP John Woodcock (now “Lord Walney”), and who had replied to a tweet by me, that Woodcock should block me because “that guy’s a neo-Nazi” (Woodcock did block me on Twitter, at once!).
I penned an assessment of Jones, 2-3 years ago: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/04/a-brief-word-about-owen-jones/.

Truly, “the road to Hell is paved with good intentions“…
Cheerful morning music from an “empire” long passed into history

Read that report. Manchester. Zoo. As for that judge, she is plainly unfit, despite her exculpa. I think that she is a Recorder (part-time judge), who was Called to the Bar in 2004, and appointed Recorder in 2016.
Looking at the wider questions, the defendants should not be in the UK at all, not in any part of Europe.
Would make a good headquarters.
This “world leaders wear masks when photographed sitting or meeting” scam is just part of the whole fraudulent operation. They don’t even bother to be consistent, because they do not fear the people. They think, “no-one is going to shoot us…we can just mess around, we can just laugh at the people we rule and are persecuting and forcing to do stupid things…nothing can happen to us.“
Interesting video by an American trying to get a Ukrainian driving licence. Apparently, every driver in Ukraine has to waste 3-4 days every 3 years doing this! Blood tests, psychiatric test, this test, that test…
I myself experienced some of that Soviet-leftover bureaucracy when I lived in Kazakhstan (1996-1997). Turned out that (in those days, probably not now) you had to get a prescription for vitamin C (even though the dose, in dark red liquid form, was a tenth of the strength of vitamin C that you can buy at any UK supermarket). Want to swim at a public pool? Then you needed a doctor to supply an approval letter! Problem with ear wax? Then you had to undergo a battery of tests and formfilling to have the treatment (a giant can of water poured into your ear).
In fact, impatient with bureaucratic bull, I managed to sidestep all of the above. My then girlfriend (who worked at the British Embassy) got me the vitamin C somehow; she also got me into the swimming pool without a medical certificate. As for the ear wax problem (I suddenly went almost deaf, in about a day, a problem never experienced previously or since), the wife of a friend, a Russian colonel, got me sorted out at a hospital without difficulty (or form-filling, or waiting).
Thank God I never wanted a driving licence (I had a driver).
When I was there, the Kazakhs loved rubber stamps. There was even a Bureau of Rubber Stamps, a title which would have delighted Kafka.
Gaddafi might not have been a “good man” (which political leaders are, in that part of the world?) but he warned Europe of the consequences of having him deposed. It may be that he himself did not understand that Europe’s treasonous and treacherous political “elite” of evil wanted Europe to be flooded with blacks and browns.,.. Just google the “Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan”…
Hitchens addresses “Bob from Brockley” as “Ben” because that pro-Israel Twitter account is run by a Jew “academic” of sorts called Ben Gidley (connected with both Birkbeck and Goldsmiths). Gidley has his real-name account too (@bengidley) as well as “@bobfrombrockley” and, I suspect, some others as well.
Gidley, sub nom “@inthesoupagain” used to troll my one-time Twitter account (closed down in 2018) daily, for years (!), until even Twitter’s generally quite pro-Jewish desk bods “suspended” (removed) that Twitter account. Then Gidley started yet another account, this time called “@antinazisunited”, which was a straight copy of “@inthesoupagain”. @antinazisunited is now frozen. I was often featured…
A nasty little pest, who is basically a pro-Israel and Jewish lobby propagandist posing as a “British” sort-of “socialist”.
