Channel 4 Dispatches/”Hope not Hate” film

I understand that the basically Jewish “antifascist” org, misnamed “Hope not Hate” recently joined with Channel 4 Dispatches [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dispatches_(TV_programme)] to make a filmed report on Patriotic Alternative: see below

I did not see the report. In the past I have seen several such “exposures” of the social-national side of British politics, both on TV and in the Press (“Lugenpresse”/”Judenpresse”), starting in the 1970s. Such reports have been on various groups or individuals: National Front, League of St. George, British Movement, British National Party, the London Forum etc. Such reports tend to be much of a muchness.

A few years ago, I think in 2017 or 2018, the Jewish “antifascist” “Hope not Hate” crowd cobbled together a similar film about the London Forum. I said at the time that it would sink without trace. It did. I believe that it was shown on late-night TV (again on Channel 4, and with an audience of two men and a dog) late at night, and later also broadcast in Belgium or the Netherlands and (I think) Sweden.

The Jew-Zionist-controlled “antifascist” cabals make a shrill noise about such “exposes” every time, briefly, before the films disappear down a black hole.

How big is the Channel 4 Dispatches audience? I cannot say, exactly. Not large, anyway.

I have just seen a review of said Dispatches report, written by a UKIP activist (apparently they still exist, though only seen rarely, like a coelacanth https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coelacanth.)

This is that online review: https://www.ukip.org/review-dispatches-the-enemy-within

The only Dispatches report I myself remember seeing was this one:

I have heard nothing about whether the imprisoned satirist and singer-songwriter has been released on bail pending appeal; I think she has not. In the meantime, she is now on the 28th day of 77 days of incarceration. In other words, she is now well over the one-third mark of her sentence.

Embarrassed” seems a mild term…

Just another virtue-signalling hypocrite who should be punished.

The presenter should have opposed “Femi” because he is anti-white-European, not because he is “racist” (whether he is or not).

The sickness in our society comes out, inter alia, in the constant pushing onto TV and radio of this useless “Femi” person. He is as thick as two short planks, for a start, and is only on the msm because the System is desperate to find blacks who can string more than a few words together. An eternal student type, who fronted a failed, EU-funded, anti-Brexit campaign for a year, several years ago now (around 2015), and now resides in the attic of his affluent Nigerian parents’ house (they being NHS doctors). At the age of 32-33, that is his entire CV, or 99% of it.

The “Femi” individual has nothing to contribute to this or any other European country. See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole (yes, that waste of space has a Wikipedia entry…).

Why are there no British groups or organizations doing that or something like that, for struggling British families? Or are there, but not publicized?

Add “Femi” to the list (in an ideal world…).

Channel 4 “wokester”, undercover, in other words a spy, gets taught a lesson when “antifa” thugs ambush him and a couple of British nationalists (on whom he is spying). In the USA, the “antifa” swine would just be shot down, of course…

It occurs to me that if (as I am told) one of the Channel 4 (or other) producers tipped off the “antifa” idiots, and so (by that deliberate and/or negligent act) caused the undercover reporter/spy to be injured, then said spy might have a case in negligence against the said producer and/or his/her employer… What fun.

I do not know whether women like that are part of a general trend, but here below is the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire,

Neither of the above women have (or had, prior to election) any experience of policing, needless to say. Britain 2022…

As a matter of fact, it seems that neither of the women noted had much to show in terms of non-political career (or indeed any career) prior to election.

Caroline Henry described herself at election in 2019 as “a businesswoman“, but no details were displayed. She is the mother of two children. As for Donna Jones, she seems to have no children, and no husband, and her only known job (except some vague “work” with Portsmouth Football Club), is that she was, from 2008-2019, a local councillor, and at one time head of the ruling Conservative Party group on Portsmouth Council.

Well, if the the office bods at RAF HQ cannot find a black lesbian, preferably with physical and mental problems, to represent the RAF, perhaps they could just dress up one of the criminal Roma Gypsies in the previously-noted story, and send him out (maybe as a “trans” person)…

I don’t know why the RAF is bothering, anyway. It scarcely exists any more. From what I have seen online just now, the UK has only about 130 attack aircraft in service at present, and I expect many of those are not immediately operational.

Ecce the UK in the globalized world of the New World Order: the Prime Minister a part-Jew, part-Levantine chancer and liar, and most of the Cabinet Jews, Indians, or Pakistanis, with the odd black or Kurd. Now we see that Indian “clever boy”, Sunak, posing as Chancellor of the Exchequer, was actually a US taxpayer until a couple of years ago! When he was not only a faux-“British” MP but actually a government minister!

Incredible yet true story

I would never travel on a Greek ship, not any distance anyway. I heard a similar story about the cowardly incompetence of Greek ships’ officers and seamen from my own brother, when he and his wife were nearly lost in a storm at sea in the Mediterranean, about 40 years ago. Only luck saved his ship (travelling between Piraeus and Kos, an overnight journey of about 17 hours).

Admittedly, I did myself once travel on a car ferry between Ancona (Italy) and Patras (Greece), a 20+-hour journey, and that was fine, but I cannot now recall whether that was a Greek ship or not. Anyway, it’s only when trouble happens that a crew is put to the test.

Deerstalker

I forgot to mention that I saw someone, a few days ago, wearing a deerstalker in the nearby small town. A man in late middle age. Unusual; I have not seen anyone wearing a deerstalker for many many years. I myself, at age 14, used to affect one, sometimes, at the races. I remember wearing one at Newbury a couple of times, circa 1970 or 1971. Sherlock Holmes has much to answer for.

Why was the bastard even in the UK? Don’t tell me that he was another “refugee”…

The report caught my eye partly because it is an area I used to know well. As a former resident of Little Venice, I was quite often in Edgware Road, and occasionally in Praed Street (Paddington) as well. I knew a couple of people who worked around there, and my dentist in the early 1990s was in the next main street (corner of Edgware Road and Sussex Gardens). In other words, I myself could have been one of the unfortunate victims, were I still living in that part of London.

The UK needs what Russians call a chistka (“clean-up” or purge), and nowhere is that more necessary than in London.

More crime: Hanratty and the A6 Murder

I happened to see a report about Valerie Storie, the woman raped and shot (and paralyzed) in the 1960s by the murderer, Hanratty: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Hanratty.

The “A6 Murder” was one of the most notorious crimes in an era of such. After Hanratty was executed, many of the famous joined in a noisy campaign to prove Hanratty innocent. Among those were the ludicrous John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and the well-meaning but often just silly Ludovic Kennedy [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludovic_Kennedy].

I recall reading a couple of books about the A6 Murder, including Who Killed Hanratty?, written by (again, rather silly) journalist, Paul Foot [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Foot_(journalist)].

I have also seen some of the documentaries made about the crime, such as that in the interesting TV series (a favourite of mine), Great Crimes and Trials [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Crimes_and_Trials]. I never saw the series when it was on BBC TV (I had no television set in the 1993-1996 period) but later bought all the videos I could find.

Interestingly enough, one book I once read, maybe by Ludovic Kennedy (not sure now) had an incident whereby, before Hanratty had been named as wanted for questioning, a lady met Hanratty casually (I think in a shop in London) and had an immediate instinct that here was the A6 murderer. Absurd from a logical point of view, yet she was right. What are the odds?

This is the local newspaper report I have just now been reading: https://www.bedfordshirelive.co.uk/news/bedfordshire-news/a6-murderer-victims-silence-finally-5856877.

Valerie Storie herself died in 2016, still paralyzed, in the house in which she had been born.

What are the British and American virtue-signallers and “me too” idiots going to say now, now that the soldiers of their beloved Zelensky Jew-Zionist regime are proven to have committed atrocities as bad as those alleged to have been committed by Russian troops?

[general state of play as of 6 April 2022]

Russia can defeat the forces of the Kiev regime, but it depends on how much death, damage and hurt Putin is willing to inflict.

Ukraine conflict: today’s thoughts

Ukraine is not a functioning state, really. It always (since “independence” in 1991) had elements of a “failed state”— corruption, shambolic maladministration, foreign/Jewish exploitation, but now the only element of a normal state that still exists is its armed force. Almost everything else is gone.

The Russian blockade means that Ukraine ports, even the unoccupied ones such as Odessa, are not working. The war and the situation in general means that industry is not functioning, that trade is almost at a standstill in much of the country. Airports are closed down and/or damaged.

So far, railways are still functioning, but for how long?

As to the war itself, I saw a report today to the effect that the Ukrainian forces are using each day about the same amount of ammunition (of all sorts, but particularly of the items supplied by NATO and others) that they are importing each week. A shortfall in the ratio 1:6. Unsustainable. It can only be a matter of time, and not much time, before the Ukrainian forces run out of everything except small arms/ammunition.

It can be seen that the Ukrainian (Kiev-regime) authorities are advising civilians in the south-east to evacuate before an expected renewed Russian onslaught. In all the besieged cities of the east, civilians are running out of food or have run out of food. It can only be a matter of time there too, before most of those cities are taken or flattened. Once that happens, the Russians will slowly occupy all of the Ukraine east of the Dnieper. That will eventually threaten Kiev again, this time from the southeast.

The Black Sea and Sea of Azov coasts are now almost entirely Russian-occupied as far west as Mykolaiv (former Nikolayev).

Russia may well move soon in some unexpected way to regain the tactical initiative. How, exactly, is hard to predict. Possibly by calling up Russia’s vast reserves, which number in the millions. True, they would all have to be fed and equipped and transported but, given that, they could be used to garrison areas taken, while the regular forces strike at areas east of the Dnieper still resisting, or not yet assaulted.

It seems that the mayor of Dnipro (former Dnepropetrovsk) has recommended that the elderly, women, and children should evacuate from the city, which at a million inhabitants (pre-invasion) is by far the largest population concentration on the Dnieper between the southern coastal areas and Kiev, 500 miles to the northwest. It has or had the 4th-largest population of the Ukrainian cities, slightly bigger than Donetsk.

Dnipro is on both banks of the Dnieper.

[Dnipro, formerly Dnepropetrovsk]

So far, the Russian forces have not yet secured Donetsk completely, let alone Zaporozhye and Dnipro. As noted, even if Dnipro can be taken or surrounded/sidelined, it is still 500 miles from there to Kiev. In my view, Russia has not won anything akin to a victory unless Kiev is taken.

The only way Russia can defeat the forces of the Kiev regime (without tactical nuclear weapons) is to call up its ground reserves, then push remorselessly forward, using hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of troops, until all Ukraine east of the Dnieper is occupied.

Meanwhile, we see msm reports of mutiny in the Russian forces. If true, reminiscent of 1917…

Well worth reading, especially by MPs, especially by Conservative Party and (Starmer-) Labour Party MPs.

The photo shows, I think, the inspection carried out later (in 1943) by the German forces that had invaded the Soviet Union in 1941, and so also the part of Poland taken by Soviet invaders in 1939. Some international experts from Switzerland and Hungary took part in the exhumation.

The massacre itself was carried out by the Soviet NKVD in 1940.

See also:

At the beginning of 1944, Ron Jeffery, an agent of British and Polish intelligence in occupied Poland, eluded the Abwehr and travelled to London with a report from Poland to the British government. His efforts were at first highly regarded, but subsequently ignored, which a disillusioned Jeffery later attributed to the actions of Kim Philby and other high-ranking communist agents entrenched in the British government. Jeffery tried to inform the British government about the Katyn massacre, but was as a result released from the Army.[65]

In 1947, the Polish Government in exile 1944–1946 report on Katyn was transmitted to Telford Taylor.[66]

In the United States a similar line was taken, notwithstanding two official intelligence reports into the Katyn massacre that contradicted the official position. In 1944, Roosevelt assigned his special emissary to the Balkans, Navy Lieutenant Commander George Earle, to produce a report on Katyn.[24] Earle concluded the massacre was committed by the Soviet Union.[24] Having consulted with Elmer Davis, director of the United States Office of War Information, Roosevelt rejected the conclusion (officially), declared he was convinced of Nazi Germany’s responsibility, and ordered that Earle’s report be suppressed. When Earle requested permission to publish his findings, the President issued a written order to desist.[24] Earle was reassigned and spent the rest of the war in American Samoa.[24]” [Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katyn_massacre].

As blogged a day or two ago, Soviet agents, pro-Soviet “useful idiots”, and/or Jews, were trying, as late as the early 1980s, to pin the guilt for the Soviet massacre at Katyn on the forces of the Reich.

Mirabile dictu! At last, Boris-idiot’s government may be doing something which which I may be able to agree, depending on the detail. Much later, perhaps, we may be able to remove millions of others from the UK to Rwanda or other such countries. They would be more suited to life outside Europe.

It might just save our country’s socio-ethno-racial future.

Whatever one may think of the present shambolic UK government, if the proposed scheme gets going on a large-enough scale, that will cook Labour’s goose for good, I should think.

The area now known as “Ukraine” has of course a history which includes being part of the Khazarian empire:

see also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khazars, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khazars#Judaism

You can see now why Ukraine is vital to the plans of NWO/ZOG. That is why, despite the alleged war crimes, despite the terrible destruction and harm being done, Russia must fight on to topple the Zelensky regime.

Terrible losses, assuming that the figures are accurate. Tanks lost are about 5% of all tanks operational in the whole of Russia; as for the soldiers, though, no more than 2% of the overall active strength. Very bad losses, all the same.

Graham Linehan

I saw recently that Graham Linehan, the former scriptwriter, was feeling sorry for himself because “trans” fanatics had had him “cancelled”, and because his wife left him, it seems, once he had little money or income left.

This is what I was reading: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10677797/Graham-Linehan-Trans-rights-extremists-destroyed-career-marriage-never-in.html

What to say when you dislike both sides of a conflict?

I have blogged before about both Linehan and the “trans” nonsense which seems inescapable in the UK of 2022:

As a matter of fact, I had never heard of Linehan until he was scathing about me on Twitter several years ago. I had only vaguely heard of Father Ted, and certainly never seen it.

I have to say that his present troubles could not have happened to a more appropriate person; I see that quite a few Daily Mail readers seem to agree with me. I do not agree with the Daily Mail scribbler who refers to him as “this decent man“, even though I agree with Linehan about the “trans” nonsense and associated lunacy.

Fascinating to trawl back through Twitter, in that you see people tweeting this week the same sort of stuff, indeed often exactly the same stuff, that they were tweeting 4+ years ago. Pathetic. Pointless.

Saw one of my own comments, but on the GAB system, from nearly 4 years ago, from when (in mid-2018) I was expelled from Twitter at the instigation of a pack of Jew Zionists. Most of my tweets are now unavailable, but a few were copied and reposted, either by supporters or enemies, and so are still available, as are a few old GAB remarks (I do not bother with GAB now, nor with other social media platforms).

Still seems very arguable to me.

Ha ha! Below, another of my old tweets, reposted by some idiot angry that the Guardian scribbler Martin Belam used it in his semi-obit. piece about deceased and once-famous actor, Peter Wyngarde:

Interesting to see, now again reading that Guardian article online, that my above tweet and also a few others are now just blank spaces. Testament to the ever-intensifying censorship on Twitter.

Incidentally, I see from those old tweets about me, that yet another person who declared war on me (online) seems to have died (at least his Twitter account trailed off over 18 months ago, though only just now noticed by me).

That has happened to rather many Twitter twits, most of whom were just “me too” pile-on idiots who neither had had any direct contact with me at all, nor thought to behave decently, or just politely, in tweeting to, or about, me. Good riddance to them all.

In fact, at present a few other long-term, malicious, and venomous anti-Millard tweeters are presently in very poor conditions of health (which came upon them suddenly, it seems), and may not be around for much longer.

As frequently expressed previously, Russia should have been able to seize the most important parts of Ukraine swiftly, efficiently, and without massive damage or loss of life. Sadly, that failed miserably. Russia now has to fight for its own very future down the line.

The Ukraine invasion has become the Ukraine war. It is a ghastly bloody mess. I hate what has happened, and feel very sorry for those suffering, but Russia must now fight on, and win the eastern and southern parts of the country, come what may.

Putin must call up the three million reserve troops Russia has, and then just steamroller the Kiev regime.

So 1,000 missiles per day? At what point does a state supplying such weapons in such quantities become de facto an active participant in the war?

Of the above news items, the only really immediately significant one is that the tough, indeed brutal, Chechen fighters attached to the Russian effort claim to have taken the city hall of Mariupol, i.e. the central part of the city (pre-invasion population around 450,000).

Morale in at least part of the Russian invasion force has obviously been a problem, which is no doubt why Putin has drafted in the determined and relentless Chechens; it seems that battle-hardened Syrian volunteers, motivated (by money) and experienced, may arrive before too long. That may stiffen the Russian line.

The EU really is a bad joke now. If Ukraine is admitted, then it means that all the supposedly carefully-worked-out EU membership criteria (social and political stability, territorial integrity, no part of a country being under occupation, economic stability, stability of currency etc) are worth squat, to put it colloquially.

It also shows, pretty clearly, that the Russian occupiers are not the monsters that are being portrayed in the Western msm…

The civilians in the occupied cities are plainly not much afraid of the Russian troops.

The Western arms being sent to the Kiev regime may well result in localized, and even wider, defeats for Russian forces in the short term, but will result either in the Russian high command (historically, the Stavka) committing more troops and equipment to the war (as it now is) or (and/or) using very powerful bombs, missiles and artillery to flatten cities in the south and east of Ukraine and also to attack, from long distances, strategic targets in the west of Ukraine.

So far, the Russians have not much targeted such as railway stations, railway lines, and major road links from neighbouring countries, in the west of Ukraine.

Neither have whatever Putin has in the nature of the old Soviet Spetsnaz forces been used to assassinate the highest-ranking members of the Kiev regime.

In Soviet days, so-called “Olympic Spetsnaz” (many officers of which were or had been athletes in Olympic competition) were assigned to be used against targets of the highest strategic importance— early-warning stations, missile launch sites, nuclear power stations and manufacturing plants, and the assassination of heads of state, heads of government, high-ranking military and naval chiefs etc.

When push comes to shove, Putin is not going to back down. The only question is how far his (it seems not very competent) General Staff and intelligence apparat will back him. As I said weeks ago, Stalin would have been shooting generals and spy chiefs right and left by now.

On Her Majesty’s Not Very Secret Service

I happened to see this 2021 Daily Mail article by Craig Brown [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_Brown_(satirist)]: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10487439/CRAIG-BROWN-spy-licence-tweet-MI6.html.

By chance, if you like, I have just finished reading the 2016 biography, Spymaster [https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/nov/11/spymaster-martin-pearce-mi6-maurice-oldfield], by Martin Pearce, the nephew of the subject. Incidentally, good value; bought used via Amazon— only about £6 even including postage for a hardback copy in almost new condition.

That book is well written, workmanlike, but unexciting. It covers much the same ground as “C”, an earlier and far more interesting study, written in 1985 by “Richard Deacon” [Donald McCormick; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_McCormick], an interesting writer whose books on espionage etc are always very readable.

Deacon’s book delved into Oldfield’s interest in astrology and numerology. For me, that was one of its most interesting areas. The more recent book ignores that area of Oldfield’s mind completely, which I think is a weakness in it.

The strengths of the 2016 book lie in its having more up to date material, and in the fact that the author could tell a few anecdotes about his uncle. Not enough, for me, and having read the earlier book long ago, as well as other material, I found the 2016 book rather derivative.

As for the now-tiresome recounting of what is publicly known about those over-rated people Philby, Burgess, Maclean, and Blunt, for me that was like seeing a merely so-so film for the tenth time.

Other aspects of the intelligence history (and indeed, general history) of the 20thC, I found very shallow indeed, and there were a couple of plain errors.

I don’t want to knock Pearce’s book too much. It is a fairly good read, and worth reading at that, but personally I would not give it more than 3 stars out of 5.

As for that Craig Brown article, I agree with much of what he says, but his points are weakened when he says that, for example, Maxwell Knight [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwell_Knight] was “head of MI5“. Perhaps he should have been Director-General [“D-G”], but in fact he never was, though he was ranked as a director of the (then-small) MI5 in the 1920s.

When journalists and other scribblers cannot get basic facts right, it irritates, and makes the reader feel that their opinions are superficial (though, as said, I myself did agree with much of Brown’s article).

Incidentally, Martin Pearce has written but one other book, and that was about the Malayan Emergency [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malayan_Emergency], focussing on its military and intelligence aspects.

I do not know whether Martin Pearce was (or is) in the same line of business as his uncle; neither Amazon nor the dust jacket of Spymaster give any detail at all about his education, residence, hobbies, or occupation.

OK, but from another perspective, those Ukrainian civilians are not being treated at all brutally, no more than would be a protest crowd in London; arguably, far less brutally. Russian weaponry may incite fear, but the soldiers themselves do not, it seems.

As previously blogged, the Boris-idiot government will make sure that everything wrong in Britain for years to come will be blamed on Russia and Putin. For one thing, all the money wasted on two years of “panicdemic” propaganda and useless, pointless, “measures” (lockdowns, shutdowns, “furlough” payments, billions in fraudulent “loans”, tens of billions on completely useless “test and trace” etc), and consequent inflation caused by erosion of the real value of the pound sterling. Now we read that inflation may top 10% in a year. That is the fault of this government, not Putin’s.

…and soon, even to say these things online is going to be made a crime, via the Online Harms Bill/Act.

An evil little monkey.

Can you believe that the Western world is led by the USA, which is “led” by idiots of the Pelosi sort, and by Biden, a demented old fellow who can hardly get the day of the week right?

Ukraine

A few more thoughts.

As Kiev inhabitants continue to flee, the food stocks in Kiev will last longer than the 2+ weeks predicted by Zelensky. How long they will last, though, is almost anyone’s guess. I presume that the defending forces will have stocks for far longer than the civilian population.

I have been looking at Google Maps and Google Earth to see the layout of Kiev, a city which I have never visited. I see not just the river Dnieper, but other streams, marshes etc. Approach from the northeast and east is difficult. The Dnieper cannot easily be bridged almost immediately south of Kiev because of the width of the river (dammed in several places for hydroelectricity). The same is true immediately north of the city. There is one crossing on the northern outskirts.

There have been isolated missile strikes in Kiev, probably to frighten the population into leaving.

I note a strange fact: despite the Russian forces having done huge damage to some of the Ukrainian cities, there has been no attack on Russian cities (except in the disputed Donbass area) by Ukrainian/Kiev-regime forces.

To me, that indicates either that the Kiev regime simply has no forces capable of attacking the small Russian towns near the border (Donetsk, a major city, is right on the border of Russia but on the notionally “Ukrainian” side), or that Zelensky is trying to maintain the “victim” narrative, i.e. that Russian forces are attacking civilians, but that the Ukrainian forces are not (except in Donetsk and the Donbass generally).

In colloquial terms, Zelensky has “played a blinder” in terms of international public relations. He is perceived now, in much of the West, not as a Jew clown, and as the figurehead puppet-on-a-stick of an ultra-wealthy and corrupt Jewish cabal, and with a $40,000,000 home in Florida (and God knows how much in offshore bank accounts), but as the brave Tribune of the People, a people under merciless attack by a ruthless and powerful enemy.

Ukraine has public relations but (it seems) scarcely any army, navy, or air force.

That tentative conclusion is supported by the fact that no attack was made on the now-famous “40-mile-long” Russian column north of Kiev. Even a defensive fortress-Kiev plan would, surely, allow for attacks on supply columns and the like?

Put simply, that column was not attacked because there was no-one to attack it.

Despite the huge destruction in Kharkov and in the smaller southern cities, I think that Putin wants Kiev to fall without too much damage, if possible. He may even have some idea of repopulating it with Russians, on a permanent basis.

Having said that, my assessment has been and remains that, if Putin can only “win” by flattening every city in Ukraine, he will do it.

I do not claim that it is original to call that ship’s operator the Border Farce, but it is certainly the case.

I think we know in our hearts that, somewhere down the line, the results of all this will have to be dealt with harshly, come what may.

Largely a result of the 30+ years of poverty and its consequences, under a succession of Jewish-Zionist-dominated cabal “governments”.

In the circumstances, £350 a month to house some refugees seems a modest-enough amount as “danger money”…

Nearest public square— firing squad (in an ideal world)…

Ironic that the Conservative Party withdrew after a few days its only true election poster, the “Devil Eyes” one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Labour,_New_Danger

Wise words, the voice of brief but bitter experience. When I was in Southern Africa (Rhodesia and Botswana) for a while in 1977, I met a number of people with varied military experience around the world: British ex-Marines and Paras, American ex-U.S. Rangers, ex-U.S. Marines and others, the odd New Zealander, some South Africans, and a Portuguese who had fought against Frelimo in Mozambique; even an Israeli.

I recall one Brit, conventional military provenance unknown but (I think) genuine or real, telling people his experiences fighting with the notorious “Colonel” Callan (in fact a Greek Cypriot and former Parachute Regiment corporal) in Angola in 1976. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costas_Georgiou.

According to the said British person, there were wannabee mercenaries from the UK, with no military experience at all, who had been flown to Africa, signed up to the FNLA “army”, given weapons and uniforms, and then pretty much turned out into the field, into battle, fighting experienced African communist/nationalist guerrilla fighters and Cuban Army units.

Apparently, many of the Brit “mercenaries” did not even know enough to get themselves down on the ground when the enemy opened fire! Many were killed not very long after arrival, massacred in contacts with MPLA or Cuban units in the long grass of Southern Africa.

Oddly enough, the Brit telling the story defended “Callan” (plainly a murderous psychopath, who by mid-1976 had been captured, then tried and executed in Loanda), saying that he would get angry because some of the British would-be mercenaries refused to fight.

See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luanda_Trial.

Whatever the truth of the above, the fact is that many Brits and others are now volunteering for war service with the Kiev regime. Some may have good though misguided motivations, others may scent loot. Those with little battle experience may not last very long.

Incidentally, two of the socialist “international observers” at that trial were Jack Dromey and Stephen Sedley.

The first, then a heavily-bearded and fierce militant, married Harriet Harman six years later and, like her, became an MP and Blairite government minister: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Dromey.

Stephen Sedley, a barrister, was later Sir Stephen, and a Lord Justice of Appeal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Sedley. I myself appeared in front of him as Counsel a couple of times, when he sat as a judge of the High Court in the 1990s.

Ukraine

As I have blogged several times, the Russians could have taken Kiev, Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and the Black Sea littoral, with a kind of “Blitzkrieg” combined with special forces operations, accomplished that (and the elimination of the Jewish regime in Kiev) in a few days, and without much harm or panic caused to the civilian population.

Sadly, that did not happen, and the whole invasion has become a bloody mess. The Russian Army and General Staff is culpable.

Having said the above, I see that the Russians are following the same basic strategy that I outlined weeks ago, not bothering so far to do much in the western two-thirds of the country, at least not in areas very far beyond the Black Sea.

As I flagged up some days ago (only now starting to be mentioned in the UK msm), the Ukrainians in the contested areas are starting to run out of food, fuel, possibly ammunition, and in some areas even water.

This is now a depressingly-bloody and sad war of attrition, which Russia is very slowly winning. The major cities, except Lvov, are almost certain to fall to Russian control. The population remaining will be sullen, unco-operative and, more or less, prisoners. How far beyond that they will go (to actual armed resistance), once Russian rule is dug in, is uncertain.

The Russians may allow, or even encourage, Ukrainian civilians in the Russian-controlled areas to leave and go as refugees to the western parts of the Ukraine, or via there to neighbouring countries. If that happens, the Russians will have got rid of people probably hostile to them, people who need to be fed etc; that would also place a greater burden on the Kiev regime (as long as it remains active) and on the EU states bordering Ukraine.

Hard to watch the superficially-kind but actually propagandistic (and contrary to international convention) treatment of a captured Russian soldier. Yes, he was given tea, but the Ukrainian soldiers or militia fighters in the crowd looked savagely exultant. Hope he survives and is not ill-treated. The telephone call to the boy’s mother in Russia was obviously designed to put pressure on her and the Russian population and government.

Commanders of Ukraine’s Special Operations Forces warned they would no longer take Russian artillerymen as prisoner of war in response to their ‘brutal shelling’ of cities – a move which would be a war crime. 

Each and every gun crew… will be slaughtered like pigs,’ a statement on their Facebook page on Wednesday evening said.” [Daily Mail].

“Each action posits an equal and opposite reaction”, so I dare say that the Russians will also soon stop taking prisoners, at least any thought to belong to irregular forces, including any “volunteers”, adventurers, or freebooters from Western countries.

I do not know why the Russians have failed to kill or capture Zelensky and his cabal. That should have been top priority. If it was, and yet failed, it argues again that both the GRU and Russian Army need thorough reform, once this is all over.

In the UK, the msm has whipped up a kind of “let’s bomb Russia even if it means nuclear war” madness.

Were I ensconced in a castle in the South West of the UK, together with loyal followers, I might be more sanguine, in that, after massive destruction, we could take over the UK, eliminate surviving enemies, and create a new social-national society.

However, as it is, that is little more than a pipe-dream. I do not want my (still, at least partly) “green and pleasant land” to be hit by waves of nuclear weapons-caused destruction.

Historical note

The place where Europe began: Spiral cities built on remote Russian plains by swastika-painting Aryans

“Desolate: The Bronze Age cities were built some 4,000 years ago by the Aryans in a 400 miles long region of the Russian Steppe.”

The Aryans’ language has been identified as the precursor to a number of modern European tongues. English uses many similar words such as brother, oxen and guest which have all been tracked to the Aryans.” [Daily Mail report]

These ancient Indian texts and hymns describe sacrifices of horses and burials and the way the meat is cut off and the way the horse is buried with its master. If you match this with the way the skeletons and the graves are being dug up in Russia [on the border of Siberia and Kazakhstan], they are a millimetre-perfect match.’”

[Bettany Hughes, TV historian, in UK Daily Mail].

The foundations of modern Europe lie with the Aryans and their post-Atlantean, post-Aryan descendants:

Long live, er, freedom…

Russia has to secure at least its major objectives (Kiev, Black Sea coast, east-of-Dnieper Ukraine) quickly, before those weapons are deployed.

A horrible and bitter end, but Russia now has no choice, from where it now is, leaving aside blame for how things have turned out.

One of many tweeters prematurely hailing a Kiev-regime victory. The game is not yet at an end. Russia is what the mediaeval ages called “investing” (besieging) most of the major cities of Ukraine. The tactics also are those of the Middle Ages— starvation and bombardment.

How long can those cities hold out without food, or perhaps without water and electricity? I feel sorry for those civilians trapped therein. Old people, unwell people, companion animals too. It should not have happened in this way, and the Jew-Zionist-controlled msm in the West has used these circumstances to demonize Russia, because of the human and animal cost of all of this.

I think that Russia can still achieve its strategic objectives in the east and south. That leaves the approximately two-thirds of the country to the west of the Dnieper and to the north of the Black Sea littoral. That rump of Ukrainian territory would have been of only limited importance, but now will be of major importance because of the arms flooding in from the West. It may be that, before too long, the destruction of locations in the west of Ukraine will more than equal that happening at present elsewhere.

Surely calling those idiots “intellectuals” is a little too kind? That horrible little blot, Harwood, was recently sharing, on Twitter, his revelation that Italy, on a map, looks like a boot!

Almost as good as the “advice” given to the British public in the 1980s by constipated civil servants, to the effect that, in the event of nuclear attack, British people should shelter under a stout table, “protected” by a tablecloth or blanket, and should not forget to keep safe their pension books and bank documents!

As previously blogged, the aim in the medium-term is to get as many people as possible microchipped, probably on the arm or wrist, and get them using that system for all everyday uses: NHS, shopping, travel. Those refusing will be gradually marginalized and, ultimately, probably, detained indefinitely.

Only extreme resistance now, or soon, will prevent this in Western and Central Europe, North America, Australasia, and elsewhere.

As a control mechanism, “the virus” has done most of its job. The majority of the (eg) British population have been proven to be sheep, easily corralled and controlled; in effect, brainwashed. The facemask nonsense was key in doing that.

Of course, a properly-run society would properly punish the likes of Professor Ferguson (or, indeed, laugh at him from the start, and certainly not take him seriously).

Stray thoughts about the increasingly acrid Ukraine situation

Had the Russian forces mounted a properly-planned Blitzkrieg from the start, and thus achieved their main strategic objectives within days, toppling the Jew-Zionist Kiev regime and installing a puppet government de facto over the Kiev region, over that part of Ukraine east of the Dnieper, and over the Black Sea littoral, there would have been no time for the creation of a civilian resistance, and no time for the NWO/ZOG powers of the EU, UK, and North America to respond effectively. Also, the Ukrainian civilians would not have suffered harm, certainly not on the scale that looks likely now.

In the ancient cult of Magna Mater, the candidates for initiation had at one point to wade through a literal bath of blood. Metaphorically, that is where Putin and the Russian forces now are.

Unless they are going to abandon the operation completely, which would not only be humiliating for Putin personally but disastrous for Russia strategically, they have to press on to victory, even though any victory now will be horrible and bitter.

NATO, the EU, even usually-neutral Sweden, and others, are funnelling serious armament into Ukraine now. It will be placed at the disposal of the Kiev regime.

The ground-to-air armament flooding in may deny Russia command of the skies before very long. Even now, Russia’s air force does not seem to be being used as effectively as it could be, and certainly not as ruthlessly as the Americans use theirs.

This situation can only worsen for Russia over time. The only answer will be for Russia to destroy the Kiev regime very soon, whatever it takes. The key players have to be captured or eliminated.

I tremble for the remaining civilian population of Ukraine (and their companion animals). This should never have happened, certainly not in this way.

Supplies of food and fuel must be running out in Kiev. The odds are still in favour of the Russian invaders, if they press forward.

The Russian Army has been hugely upgraded over the past 15 years, but has shown itself incapable of proper staff work and planning. It dithered for weeks (that may have been Putin’s fault), then launched an unimpressive, sluggish and “bitty” invasion that seems to have lacked elan and rigour.

In a way, this incipient debacle is reminiscent of what happened in Karelia in 1939-40.

Stalin would have been shooting generals by now. Putin cannot do that, but he has to reinvigorate this operation before it becomes a manifest and historic defeat.

How is it that a country with (one reads) 4,500 fighter aircraft cannot dominate the skies of one that has fewer than 100?

If Putin and his generals do nothing, or if they withdraw behind Russia’s frontiers, The Kiev regime will be resupplied, its forces upgraded (all paid for by NWO/ZOG states), and before long there will be NATO or NATO-proxy forces stationed only 300 miles from Moscow (Moscow is 300 miles from the Ukrainian border at the nearest point).

The logic of the above is that the Kiev regime must now be toppled by massive force, even though a victory bought at such a price in destruction and suffering could not be other than bitter and even sickening.

Ukraine— possible developments

What if Russian forces manage to control the whole area east of the Dnieper, as well as the Kiev area and the Black Sea coast? What then?

If there is a relocation of the Kiev regime to Lvov, with control over the western part of Ukraine, then NATO and the EU will flood it with arms and training staff. Russia, and Putin especially, would then have the choice of coming to some accommodation with that government, or fighting it. The Western allies would presumably keep referring to it as the Government of Ukraine de jure, even if the Russians install a Ukraine government, de facto, in Kiev.

In fact, both such regimes would only, de facto, control about half of of the whole country. Both would be supported as “de jure” governments of the whole by, and only by, their individual patron-states.

It is hard to see any such Lvov regime accepting Russian rule over a third to a half of present Ukraine, and including Kiev. On the other hand, and on present evidence, the Russian forces would seem incapable of taking the whole country, let alone holding it.

It is easy for many to talk about Ukraine as if it is smaller than it is, but Ukraine is about the same size as France. Huge. Nearly three times the size of the whole UK.

As for Kiev, with its 3 million inhabitants, it is —depending on where administrative boundaries are drawn— about the 7th-largest city by population in Europe. Indeed, if one excludes Istanbul, Moscow, and St. Petersburg, the 4th-largest.

Of course, if one includes suburbs outside strict city limits, London and Paris have even larger populations, but that would still mean that Kiev would be the 5th-largest city in Europe (excl. cities in European Turkey and European Russia), after London, Paris, Madrid, and Berlin.

The international situation can only go down from here. On the periphery, biding its time, China…

Time to repost my blog thoughts about the potential necessity of founding a new civilization on the rubble of the old…

Analysis on video

This is basically correct.

As that person is saying, Russia is not, as yet anyway, flattening everything in Ukraine, whereas the American idea, seen repeatedly, is to flatten whole cities, regardless of civilian harm.

In any case, Putin does not want to take over a flattened wasteland.The way things are going, though, he may have little choice.

Again, the cold logic seems to lead to a massive attack on the locations of the Kiev regime itself, i.e. on central Kiev, with the aim of decapitating the present government and thus starting to end any mass resistance.
